Tao Calligraphy and the Field of Light | Tao Hands

For many years Master Sha has offered wisdom, knowledge, practical techniques and blessings to help humanity, Mother Earth and all souls through this time of great change on Mother Earth.

From The Four Power Techniques and Say Hello Formula to Soul Song and Soul Dance, Divine and Tao Mantras, Soul Mind Body Science and much more, he empowers us in order that we may understand and deeply experience and benefit from the power of soul.

In 2013 Master Sha learned a very special form of Chinese calligraphy called "Yi Bi Zi" Calligraphy, also known as Oneness writing (Chinese characters and phrases are written in one-stroke of the brush). Having quickly mastered the art of Yi Bi Zi, he became the sole lineage holder of his one hundred year old teacher, Professor Li Qu Yun. Master Sha went on to create Tao Calligraphy, which combines the very special energy and essence of Y Bi Zi Oneness writing with an additional transmission of Tao Light. Each Tao Calligraphy emits a Field of Light that can bless and nourish those who practice meditation, chanting, tracing and writing Tao Calligraphy.

Since then Master Sha has focused increasingly on teaching as many as possible to practice and write Tao Calligraphy, to help us attune to the higher frequencies and practice receiving and embodying these frequencies to maintain good health, happiness and success in any aspect of life.

One of the great benefits of all the wisdom and techniques Master Sha delivers is the integration of the soul and spirit into our daily lives. To sit and meditate is wonderful, but the more we can access the power of soul during our daily lives apart from while sitting in meditation, we are more able to receive and follow the guidance of our soul and Heaven.

Furthermore, the more we can embody the frequencies and vibrations of our soul and the souls of our spiritual mothers and fathers in Heaven, including the Divine, the more we can offer the greatest, most helpful service to humanity and all souls. We can sustain our health and happiness and help others do the same.

The key is to put into action all the spiritual wisdom. We can practice embodying and aligning with the higher frequencies. Practicing with Tao Calligraphy, especially to trace and write Tao Calligraphy, gives us this opportunity. With Tao Calligraphy we can align with the light by the process of tracing and writing the strokes of the Tao Calligraphy. As we do this, over and over, we can align more and more.

How blessed we are to be able to create and enjoy a Light Field simply by tracing, writing or meditating with Tao Calligraphy. To trace and write, chant and meditate with a particular sacred message is to be infused with the essence - the message, energy and matter of that message.

Once again we invite you to taste the pear!

Master Sha's last Tao Calligraphy Special Training of the year is happening May 7 - 12 from Belgium, but can be joined via webcast. Just to be in the training is to receive innumerable blessings for your journey. You can find out more on the homepage of MasterSha.com.

Thank you!

With greatest love,

Tao Hands Team.

The Amazing Grace of Tao Calligraphy | Tao Hands

Master Sha's Tao Calligraphy is a unique form of calligraphy in which sacred Chinese words and phrases are written in Oneness writing.  This means that the entire set of components and characters is written with one stroke of the calligraphy brush.

Like traditional Chinese calligraphy, Tao Calligraphy writing is a contemplative practice that can be undertaken to balance and harmonize oneself and connect to universal qi, power and wisdom. However Master Sha also blesses his Tao Calligraphy with a transmission of high frequency light. Those who study, meditate, trace or practice writing Tao Calligraphy can connect to this field of light to bless their lives.

Writing Tao Calligraphy well takes practice, but Master Sha's Tao Calligraphy students learn amazingly quickly through the unique teaching and training techniques Master Sha has developed, in addition to the many blessings that come through Tao Calligraphy writing and Master Sha. It is quite amazing to watch what students can achieve in only a few months of dedicated practice.

Master Sha and the Tao Calligraphers he trains share Tao Calligraphy enthusiastically so that people can practice with Tao Calligraphy and experience the benefits of meditating in the Tao field. One can align with and attune to the frequency and vibration of a Tao Calligraphy by chanting, meditating with and tracing the calligraphy. One can learn to write or trace a Tao Calligraphy with a particular sacred message to practice embodying and maintaining that message in one's life.

For example, Master Sha has focused on the development of the 10 Greatest Tao Qualities over the past year. Spending time practicing with Tao Calligraphies of these 10 Greatest Qualities of Greatest Love, Forgiveness, Compassion, Light, Humility, Harmony, Gratitude, Flourishing, Service and Enlightenment can help one nourish and maintain these qualities to enrich and enhance one's life.

People all over the world are discovering Tao Calligraphy. Teachers and students of Soulfulness are sharing the Tao Calligraphy practices of the Ten Tao Qualities widely. People are having beautiful experiences. If you want to know if a pear is sweet, taste it!

For a review of the Ten Tao Qualities and access to two of the Tao Calligraphies: Greatest Love and Greatest Forgiveness, go to the book Soul Over Matter, written by Master Sha and Adam Markel. It's filled with great wisdom and practical techniques. You can also join Master Sha at his only remaining Tao Calligraphy Retreat of the year May 7 - 12. Visit the homepage of MasterSha.com for more information.

Thank you for the opportunity to share a little bit about the wonders of Tao Calligraphy!

With greatest love,

Your Tao Hands Team.

Gratitude and Forgiveness when Facing Hardship | Tao Hands

In times of difficulty, we may be tempted to move away from the heart of the Divine, and even away from our own heart and soul.

We may fall into patterns of negativity, victimization, complaining, and more. We may avoid facing the challenge by turning to food, sleep, work, or some other vehicle of avoidance.

Even our spiritual path can become a form of avoidance. We may do the practices that we are comfortable with while avoiding the key practice(s) needed to make the changes we need to make.

During the hard times, we can benefit from reminding ourselves of a few basic principles:
  • Our lives do not happen by accident; there is purpose in the hardship
  • The concept of karma can help us understand the purpose and grow from it.
  • The Divine will support us totally, with greatest love and forgiveness and more
  • We need to do our part.
  • Gratitude is the first step to doing our part (thank you, Divine, for this opportunity....)
  • Forgiveness is the second step to doing our part (I humbly and deeply apologize....)
  • Asking for help is the third step to doing our part (I would be so grateful for your help to release these blockages and create a new life pattern....)
  • Continuing to practice and make new choices are the necessary steps to move forward.
We'd like to offer you a prayer of gratitude and a practice, for difficult times.

Dear Divine, thank you for all the circumstances of my life. Thank you that you are blessing me with my current hardship. which reveals your confidence that I am ready to handle this opportunity. Thank you for showing me where my ancestors and I may have made mistakes. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to grow. Thank you for giving me everything that I need to pass through this time and become more complete. I am deeply grateful for your greatest love. I cannot imagine how deep your love and forgiveness go. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Body Power: Sit up straight with your feet flat on the floor and your back away from the chair. Place one hand on the lower abdomen or the ming men point, and one hand on the heart area.

Soul Power - Say Hello:
Dear all souls who I or my ancestors have hurt or harmed, especially those we may have caused similar hardships or worse,
I deeply apologize.
I am truly sorry.
Please forgive me.
Please forgive my ancestors.
I will not harm this way again. I am learning to be an unconditional servant. 
I'm so grateful for this opportunity.
Thank you.

I forgive you and all those who've hurt me or had anything to do with these blockages.
I am honored to forgive.
Please receive my forgiveness.

Dear the Divine Soul Song of Love Peace and Harmony,
I love, honor and appreciate you.
Please bless this forgiveness practice.
Please help me transform the blockages in my current circumstance.
I am most grateful.
Thank you.

Mind Power: Visualize rainbow light within your own soul, heart, mind and body, and within and among all the souls called.

Sound Power: Chant Love Peace and Harmony (www.LovePeaceHarmony.Org/Resources).

Lu La Lu La Li

Love Peace and Harmony for Mother Earth | Tao Hands Blog

b
Beloved Mother Earth is our home and we honor her on Earth Day, April 22.

She provides us with all that we need to sustain our lives. She holds and nourishes us, unconditionally and totally, even when we may not appreciate, acknowledge or care for her. She has served countless universes for ions and is a guiding light for many souls.

We are now at a critical time in history. Many experts say action must be taken now to save our planet and ourselves. We need to love, honor, and take care of our planet and each other.

Everyday, we can make better choices. Many small changes can make a big difference, if we all implement them. If we just become more aware and live from this place of awareness, choosing sustainable options over habits of "convenience". Everyone can choose more and more ways to help Mother Earth. Things like using less electricity by using different light bulbs or turning out lights more, or keeping the thermostat higher or lower. We can reduce our use of fossil fuels by walking, riding bikes. using public transports, car-pooling or purchasing automobiles that run differently. We can omit unnecessary plastics and use sustainable products instead. The list goes on and on.

One of the best ways to make and support change, however, is to work at the soul level. First, we can change ourselves. Then we serve as a beacon of light as we serve our community, humanity, Mother Earth and all souls at the soul level. This will translate to changes in consciousness and behavior. This is the way of Soulfulness.

Chanting Love Peace and Harmony
Love Peace and Harmony is a beautiful song that can bless humanity and Mother Earth. Master Sha received this song from the Divine in Sept, 2005. Since then, he has taught it everywhere he goes. The song carries a very high frequency and vibration. The message is one of loving ourselves and humanity, and joining hearts and souls together in love, peace and harmony.

Master Sha's One-Sentence-Secret for Sound Power is that "What you chant is what you become." When we sing this song, we become Love Peace and Harmony. And research demonstrates that when people gather in groups to meditate and chant, it can have beneficial results for the entire community. This is a song of service that can truly have a significant impact on the world. As more and more people sing it daily, more changes can be practiced and sustained. People who chant this song regularly report that it helps them maintain happier, healthier lives. Here is a beautiful video:



The full version of the CD can be downloaded at LovePeaceHarmony.Org/Resources. We'd like to invite everyone to chant this song daily, for 15 minutes or more.

It is time for us to act. In addition to all the things we need to change, chanting this song can help us align with and become Divine love peace and harmony, spreading that vibration out to our communities and the world.

Join us if you will. We are very grateful to share this practice for sustaining and supporting our beloved Mother Earth, who sustains and supports us at all times.

With greatest love,

Your Tao Hands Team.

Unconditional Service | Tao Hands


"The purpose of life is to serve. I have dedicated my life to this purpose. Service is my life mission. Service is to make others healthier and happier."

All of Master Sha's books in the Soul Power and Soul Healing Miracles Series begin this way. A key teaching in all of his books is unconditional service.

So what is unconditional service?

Unconditional service is service without condition. This means that one serves without needing or expecting something in return. It is the driving force behind volunteer organizations and it is in the hearts of many who simply wish to help people. According to Master Sha and the wisdom he has received, it is the fastest pathway to enlightenment; to purifying the soul, heart, mind and body.

To serve unconditionally means you will dedicate your service to the cause, without condition. You serve for the purpose of making a difference, to help others. This is your key motivation and desire. It's not about who sees you serving or how you may be rewarded. You go into your heart and connect with the people or souls who need your help and serve them.

Service does have its own rewards. Genuine service from the heart is what will bring those rewards. Serving from ego or ambition and looking for the rewards will not work.

On page 61 of Master Sha's book, Soul Mind Body Medicine is the following passage that offers a teaching and a mantra:

Unconditional Universal Service is another golden key that will unlock any blockages and melt any obstacle in the universe. Each person will grasp the significance of this golden key according to his or her own spiritual understanding and awareness. The more you chant Unconditional Universal Service and offer service, the more blessings you will receive in every aspect of your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual lives. Hold this key tenderly. Through it, you will receive immeasurable blessings.

Let us take some time now to chant this mantra!

Body Power: Sit up straight, with your back away from the chair. Place your hands on your lower abdomen, one palm over the other.

Mind Power: Visualize golden light and all kinds of light coming into your abdomen and filling your whole being, empowering you to be a better servant.

Soul Power - Say Hello:

Dear the soul of Unconditional Universal Service,
I love, honor and appreciate you.
You have the power to help me offer unconditional universal service.
Please help me offer the greatest unconditional universal service.
Thank you!

Sound Power - Chant:

Unconditional Universal Service
Unconditional Universal Service
Unconditional Universal Service....

Chant for 5 minutes or longer. When finished, close with:

Hao. Hao. Hao. (perfect, get well)
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

The journey of unconditional service is key for spiritual growth and development and to find out who you truly are. We encourage you to give your greatest attention to your path of service, for the benefit of all.

In Master Sha's upcoming Belgium events (May, 2017) are several retreats that teach us how to be better servants, including retreats on the Ten Greatest Tao Qualities and Tao Calligraphy, as well as Guan Yin and A Mi Tuo Fo retreats, in which participants have the opportunity to become lineage holders of two of the greatest, most compassionate unconditional universal servants and buddha's known to humanity. You can join the Free Intro Evening on May 1st and find out more on the homepage of www.DrSha.com, under the Events Section.

We hope that sharing this message and practice has given you support and encouragement at this time.

With the greatest love,

Your Tao Hands Team.

Improving Tao Calligraphy Writing Part II | Divine Healing Hands

Tao Calligraphy writing is fun, and it's also quite challenging to do well. As one begins to learn, one begins to see all the ways improvement is needed. It is most important to receive some training and then to practice according to the training.

For example, it is important to understand how a particular Tao Calligraphy should be written. You will be given the structure of the original Chinese character, which will help you understand the path of the Yi Bi Zi (oneness writing) stroke. You may sometimes be asked to practice this form first. When you move into the Yi Bi Zi - oneness writing of Tao Calligraphy, it is important to practice the Tao Calligraphy first by tracing a well written calligraphy, such as Master Sha's, to memorize and imprint the form upon your soul, heart, mind and body.  

Once you have traced it frequently or memorized it well, then practice writing it. Once you write it, pause and evaluate it. Look at the structure. Compare it to Master Sha's. Look at it and evaluate if it is balanced and has the qualities that it should, with the correct flow, slant, depth of stroke, etc. Notice where it is correct and not correct. Notice how it feels to write the calligraphy.

Find what you want to correct first, which is probably in the first segment of your writing, and practice again. Have you improved? Continue this process. If you have a correction that challenges you, or if your Tao Calligraphy always has the same need for correction, this represents a blockage in your shen qi jing (soul,  heart, mind, energy and matter). This is when it could be time for practice to release this blockage.

We can practice to release a blockage without knowing much about what the blockage represents. However, it may also be interesting to explore that question, as to what this blockage may represent in your life, in your health, happiness, mentality or more. 

Let us practice now, with an aspect of your writing that you wish to improve. It could be a particular imbalance in a character, it could be how you feel when you write a Tao Calligraphy, it could be a blockage that you experience with all your Tao Calligraphy writing. Choose an aspect now.

Here's how you can practice:

Body Power: Sit straight or stand, with feet flat on the floor and back away from the chair if this is comfortable for you. Place one palm on the navel and one palm on the back side, directly across from the navel, which is the Ming Men Area. If you wish, you may trace the Tao Calligraphy you are learning to write with your "dan" or Ming Men Area as you practice also.

Mind Power: If you are stationary and closing your eyes, visualize brilliant light in your Ming Men area and throughout your being. If you are tracing in any capacity, visualize brilliant light being activated by your tracing and coming into your Ming Men area and being.

Soul Power - Say Hello:

Dear the Divine and Tao
Dear the Tao Calligraphy _____,
Dear all my spiritual mothers and fathers,
I love you, honor and appreciate you.
You have the power to help me continue to align with the Tao.
You have the power to bless my Tao Calligraphy writing.
You have the power to sustain me in my development and releasing of blockages.
Please help me, bless me and sustain me now.
Thank you.

Dear all souls associated with my Tao Calligraphy writing,

I love honor and appreciate you all.
I deeply and sincerely apologize for all mistakes I and my ancestors have made in any lifetime, especially in association with my Tao Calligraphy writing.
Please forgive us.
I am so grateful.
I forgive all souls unconditionally, who may have anything to do with any blockages.
Thank you.

Sound Power: Chant, silently or aloud:

Divine and Tao bless my Tao Calligraphy writing,
Divine and Tao bless my Tao Calligraphy writing,
Divine and Tao bless my Tao Calligraphy writing,
Divine and  Tao bless my Tao Calligraphy writing.....

Close with: Hao. Hao. Hao. (perfect; get well). Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

You can practice before and after each Tao Calligraphy writing session. We encourage you to practice well!

With the greatest love,

Your Divine Healing Hands Team

Improve Tao Calligraphy Writing - part I | Divine Healing Hands

There are many aspects of writing Tao Calligraphy that we can cover in this series. Before we look at any specific blockages we will begin with some fundamental wisdom delivered by Master Cecilia Liu, Master Sha's first appointed Traveling Tao Calligraphy Teacher. 

Chinese calligraphy has been very significant to the culture of China and was considered the premier form of art quite some time before painting was. Master Cecilia once shared the wisdom of three famous Chinese calligraphers in history who would travel around the country to select their students according to three main criteria: 1) morality, 2) intelligence and 3) the feeling or connection with the art form. These criteria demonstrate the nature and quality of the type of person they sought to teach Chinese calligraphy as a revered art form and great discipline. It also demonstrates what is required to write well.

In Master Sha's teaching today there is a similar theme, in that the ability to write Tao Calligraphy well involves 1 ) purity, or the embodiment the Ten Greatest Tao Qualities (which we covered in the ten previous blog entries), 2) soul, heart, mind and body intelligence and 3) fully connecting with Tao to flow the Tao Calligraphy.

So the essence and wisdom of the historical criteria and the current teachings of Master Sha all involve purity and intelligence, or expansion of the soul, heart, mind and body. One of the most powerful ways to practice purity and expansion is by tracing, writing or chanting the Ten Greatest Tao Qualities! 

Therefore, our first blog practice for improving our Tao Calligraphy writing will be to call on all of the Ten Greatest Tao Qualities and Divine Healing Hands in one practice, to help us maintain our alignment and embodiment of these qualities, now and as we move forward. At any time, you may practice one or all of these qualities to improve your alignment with Tao Calligraphy.

Body Power. Sit straight with your feet flat on the floor, back away from the chair if you can. Place one palm on the ming men acupuncture point, directly across from the navel on the backside, and one hand on your lower abdomen.

Mind Power. Visualize brilliant light in the ming men area and throughout your lower abdomen, torso and body.

Soul Power - Say Hello.

Dear Divine, Tao and all layers of Heaven,
Dear the Ten Greatest Tao Qualities of Greatest Love, Greatest Forgiveness, Greatest Compassion, Greatest Light, Greatest Humility, Greatest Harmony, Greatest Flourishing, Greatest Gratitude, Greatest Service and Greatest Enlightenment,
Dear my Divine Healing Hands,
I love you, honor you and appreciate you.
As I chant the Ten Greatest Tao Qualities, would you help me maintain my connection and embodiment of these qualities so I can release blockages to my purity and intelligence of soul, heart, mind and body.
I'm so grateful.
Thank you.

Sound Power. Chant silently or aloud:

Greatest Love, Greatest Love, Greatest Love, Greatest Love.
Greatest Forgiveness, Greatest Forgiveness, Greatest Forgiveness. Greatest Forgiveness.
Greatest Compassion, Greatest Compassion, Greatest Compassion, Greatest Compassion.
Greatest Light, Greatest Light, Greatest Light, Greatest Light.
Greatest Humility, Greatest Humility, Greatest Humility, Greatest Humility.
Greatest Harmony, Greatest Harmony, Greatest Harmony, Greatest Harmony.
Greatest Flourishing, Greatest Flourishing, Greatest Flourishing, Greatest Flourishing.
Greatest Gratitude, Greatest Gratitude, Greatest Gratitude, Greatest Gratitude.
Greatest Service, Greatest Service, Greatest Service, Greatest Service.
Greatest Enlightenment, Greatest Enlightenment, Greatest Enlightenment, Greatest Enlightenment.

Repeat and chant for as long as you wish! When finished, close with Hao. Hao. Hao (perfect, get well). Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 

We are so grateful to continue our Tao Calligraphy journey together, to strengthen our purity and intelligence and Tao Calligraphy writing further. Next time we will discuss how to find your inner Tao Calligrapher!

With greatest love,

Your Divine Healing Hands Team.
