Healing & self-healing according to the Nepalese shamanic tradition



It is a common question as the Corona lock-down currently does not allow me to heal people in person. I am answering this riddle honestly, from the direct experience with my clients, not holding anything back. Sorry if the following is a little straightforward off worldly...

It is understandably not easy to believe in spiritual healing, since most people have no conscious experience of the spiritual world. Even more unbelievable is the idea that one person could affect the mind, emotions and health of another over a distance of thousands of miles. And yet, many of my clients have experienced it because, in the spiritual world, distance is not a matter of miles. Our physical bodies may be far, far off, yet the distance between our souls is a matter of connection, not actual distance.

What powers this connection is love. Love creates the fiery yet ultra-thin energetic cords or nadis that connect our souls to the souls of our beloveds. That same kind of spiritual “wire” is needed for the healing energy to travel from one to another. So when I do a healing video-call, I need to love that person unconditionally, as an individual. The universal self connects us all, yet to connect to the soul of an individual i also need to love that imperfect yet beautiful perfection of the personal soul. That utterly lovable, touching work of art, that unique massala of blessings and problems, that always promising work in progress. Only then can my healing energy find that person who is far away, reach into the heart and do its cleaning and energizing magic, which is another story.

For sure, in-person healing has a lot more power and offers more variety in techniques. Yet the success rate is not very different for the somewhat milder and less physical issues. Emotional imbalances such as excessive anger, habitual anxiety, depression, nervousness, lingering sadness,… are about just as easy to reduce, long-distance or not. With some more resistant exceptions, most people will feel better and thus also empowered to change the related behavioral patterns so that they can get rid of the imbalance for good or at least reduce it to a more natural degree. Sleeplessness, dizziness, tiredness, weakness, heaviness, dependency as well as strongly emotionally triggered, clearly psychosomatic diseases, such as nervous intestines, acid reflux, breathing problems, rashes or recurring pains, imbalanced blood pressure, nerve pains, non-infectious inflammations,… may also be reduced or removed quite well from a distance. Yet here the body is already more affected, so direct contact to the body makes a bigger difference. Other more serious chronic conditions such as lingering infections, swellings, cysts and cancers, psychosis, schizophrenia, long-term addictions, blood diseases, organ malfunctions… usually do require a meeting in person, rather than just a video-call.

For the one who gets healed, the how really does not matter. Yet for people to give long-distance spiritual healing a chance, I hope to have offered some better understanding. I can never promise anything as healing is not an exact science and every person is in a way an exception. If an issue is chronic then you probably already have tried the more obvious tangible solutions. If that is the case, then from my experience, it is worth giving this ancient Nepalese shamanic tradition a try. Also in India and Nepal, when the doctor and/or therapist seem unable to bring the desired change, people turn to the local shaman for a more spiritual solution...

The above may sound too amazing to many people, yet in a way it still appears so to myself as well. I thank the healing energies for making it all possible.

Practical information on the healings


Leela is the ancient vedic name for the theater of life. Life in all its forms is an illusion behind which we can find the ultimate truth of pure Being. Yet life is also a divine theater, a spiritual game played by us, the actors. Yoga allows us to hold on to the bliss of truth while playing the game. And also this yoga is a game, which we can only take seriously if we do not take ourselves and this game too seriously. That is the meaning of Leela Yoga, nothing more, nothing less. So, Leela Yoga is a vision on yoga and also a name for a simple organisation that allows me to bring this vision into practice... more about Leela Yoga & Peter Marchand

  in sweet memory
of Harish Johari


As the destination is the same for all, it is easy to make the error of assuming that the path must be just as universal.

The attachment that happens in the pursuit of happiness is the main source of unhappiness.

Don't think of going somewhere, because this somewhere will come along with you wherever you go, as you are already there.

Yoga requires unity between enjoyment and suffering, between bhoga and yoga, even between attachment and detachment.

How can anyone be "good" without a choice between good and bad?

While the mind creates the illusion of the universe through the senses, the intellect creates the illusion of understanding it.

When our day has been entirely ego-centered, then our meditation will probably have similar poor quality.

When the focus on the self is held strongly enough, the flow of kundalini energy happens on its own, naturally.

Tiptoe inside, don't make a sound, don't scare away that which cannot be found.

Enlightenment is nothing more or less than the final level of the game of life.
