|It was announced today that on Wednesday 10 September 2003, the eighth
World Healing Day will take place. This annual event, which began in 1996,
has linked up thousands of people across the world in meditation, prayer,
and mindful activity to help raise world consciousness and further world
World Healing Day is a global linkup for world peace and healing. This annual event, originally known as World Earth Healing Day, was first held on October 12 in 1996, and has since been held on July 19-20 in 1997, May 25 in 1998, August 11 in 1999, May 4 in 2000, June 21 in 2001, and August 22 in 2002. In 2003 it will be held on September 10.
World Healing Day is about uniting to raise world consciousness through the power of collective intent. By dedicating a day to this process, and establishing one or more linkup times, we provide an opportunity for a concentrated focus of positive thought, feeling, and action to be created and held by large numbers of people around the world at the same time. We believe this to be one way of furthering the healing and transformation of the Planet.
We are asking people worldwide to dedicate their day to the expansion of our hearts and minds, and to work together to raise world consciousness and help bring peace and healing to our world. When people work together as a whole, the energy they produce is greater than the sum of their individual energies. As well as increasing the power of the healing, this also makes it easier for others to change. Working together as a whole does not mean that you have to be physically present with others (though this may have benefits), for it is the common focus of consciousness that connects people together. Neither does it mean that all must perform the same activity or hold the same beliefs, so long as the same focus of intent is shared. We would, however, request that people link up in meditation, prayer, or thought at one or more of the designated times to produce a concentrated, unified focus of healing energy and awareness.
There will be two simultaneous global linkups in meditation. The first will be at 12 noon GMT (1pm in the UK). The second will be at 16.30 GMT (5.30pm in the UK). Please note that the UK will be observing daylight saving time which is an hour ahead of GMT. Each meditation will last for at least 20 minutes, and will consist of clear, focused positive thought. Please dedicate your intent to the awakening of planetary consciousness and the advancement of world peace and healing.
The date and linkup times of World Healing Day are chosen for their astrological significance. This is because the planets and stars are as interconnected as everything else is. We believe that the pattern they form in relation to the Earth influences its subtle-energetic field, and therefore the collective planetary consciousness. It seems that certain planetary alignments produce certain resonant responses within the collective consciousness. It follows that under certain planetary alignments our collective consciousness will become more receptive to healing as archetypal issues are amplified and brought into focus in a particularly helpful way. This creates an opportunity for those in expanded states of consciousness to assist in the resolution of these collective patterns by focusing upon their harmonious integration from the perspective of unity consciousness. The collective vision that is held by such people at this time will be strengthened by the resonance of the planetary alignments.
It is not necessary to understand astrology or even to be aware of the archetypal planetary influences in order to contribute to the healing of the collective consciousness. However, for those who are interested in working with archetypes or knowing what planetary energies will be supporting them on World Healing Day, click here. If you feel it appropriate you can hold an awareness of the astrological themes in your thoughts and meditations on the day.
