Twelve years ago Mihaela had a powerful realization in a dream. She woke up with a certainty that she was fully complete and perfect, just as everything was also perfect just the way it was. Likewise for all sentient beings, they were already complete, fully complete just the way they were, although many might not be aware of it yet. That day she had promised herself to somehow help as many people as she can realize their true nature, their completeness.
During this time she discovered a great affinity with Buddhism, which she considered being more of a philosophy of life and death than a religion. After more in depth study of the Dharma, Mihaela started to meditate for great lengths of time and practiced mantra recitation repeating her favorite mantra, “OM Mani Padme Hung”. She literally fell in love with this mantra when she learned that “Om Mani Padme Hung” is a prayer for the benefit of ALL sentient beings: “May all sentient being be happy and have the causes of happiness!”. What a wonderful and powerful wish!
These experiences (of the meditation and mantra recitation with the pure intention for the benefit of all), radically changed her perception of her individual life and our lives as a global family. It was then that she had that profound dream. It was then that she realized her own awakening was the greatest purpose of her life, and that by being awake herself, she could truly be at service for the highest good. Contemplating and meditating on the meaning of the Prajnaparamita, the Heart Sutra, she also understood that “All phenomena is naturally the unity of interdependent origination and emptiness”. In other words, absolutely everyone and everything is interconnected at such deep level, that everyone’s thoughts and deeds have an effect on everyone’s else not just on themselves. That means, everyone has a tremendous responsibility for their own thoughts first, since thoughts are “things’, they can uplift or hurt! Wow, what a realization! At the same time, knowing that everything is so interconnected, everyone can do their very best in everything they do, and then relax into the flow of life, without attachment of the outcome. The phenomena, is completely free and unobstructed, and seeing all things nakedly and clear, then there is nothing to attain or realize. Again, everything is perfect just as it is, completely pure and undefiled.
Praying for an answer about how to integrate her realizations and her “findings”, Mihaela was privileged to “bump” into Theosophy, following a chain of synchronistic events which led her to Ojai, California. Theosophy answered many of her questions about inner religion, philosophy, science and the untapped powers (latent potential) in man. She never failed to take full advantage of this great opportunity and is forever grateful to the Theosophical Society who unconditionally gave her all the necessary tools and teachings to help her with bringing all of the many glimpses into a continuum.
Mihaela then felt a strong desire to integrate this wealth of spiritual wisdom into a practical and powerful practice that she could share. To this end she sampled Yoga, Qigong, Meditation, Energy Healing, Therapeutic Touch and the study of Theosophy. Her quest successfully culminated in finding two great masters of our time: Master Zi Sheng Wang , from whom she received a direct transmission of Tibetan Qigong, and Dakini Master Yuan Miao from whom she received a direct transmission of the Tibetan Vajrayana “Yoga of Joy”. Mihaela has also recently received the transmission of “Shiva Garuda” practice from Lama Norbu. Never ceasing to better her skills, for the last eleven years Mihaela has been training in energy healing and Energy Feng Shui with renown Fiona Whitmore, from whom she learned to tap into her own intuition, and her gifts.
Mihaela hopes to convey through Yoga of Joy, Qigong and energy healing that anyone can create an inner core strength as one’s being starts to function purely from within rather than from without. Through learning and practicing these extremely powerful practices, which were kept secret for hundreds of years, one’s very being could be rejuvenated and healed, as the rays of one’s inner sun pours into the body, drawing in vital energy. At the same time one could start the awakening process, dissolving the barriers of relative perception, and revealing the true nature of existence.
