Bengston Workshop Experience + Tips

Bengston Energy Healing Method® is the most interesting healing method I’ve experienced so far. I learned it from a practitioner who has been treating me for allergic skin reaction to household detergents and chronic respiratory congestion.

My skin has been clear for a long while now except for the occasional encounters with allergens. And the congestion is so mild now it doesn’t bother me much anymore.

Workshop Experience

Dr. Bill Bengston is a serious scientist with a serious sense of humor. As tired was I was through the entire 4 days of workshop, I only dozed off in the last 15 minutes of the last day and it wasn’t because I was bored.

What I Love About The Bengston Method

  • Bill developed and tested the method in the lab and he has the photos and data to back it up. Watch Bill explain what he does.
  • Bill always thank the receivers (even animals) because by them accepting the healing, they are giving him what he wants–healing of themselves.
  • We (anyone using the Bengston method) do not heal, our job is to deliver the healing energy from the Universe to the recipients. Healing while keeping your ego in check, I LOVE it!
  • He thinks our body is smart, it takes what it needs from the healing energy, and it knows what needs to be fixed first, so the symptom you want to heal might not happen for a while. If there is nothing in the way of clearing the symptom, it will go away sooner than later.
  • Once you mastered the method, it’s almost effortless.

Signing up

the energy cure

If you only want to get an idea of the method and what it can do, go for the first evening research lecture at a very reasonable price. If you want to learn the method, sign up for the Two Day Workshop.

And if it’s possible, attend the Advanced Practice Day, too. On the Advanced Practice Day, you get more time to ask all types of questions, learn more ways to apply healing, and practice some more.

You can see Bill’s video on the workshop for more information.

Advanced Practice Day is Special

When I arrived at the workshop that last day, I noticed a very clear mood shift from the two previous days. People were excited to start the day. It was like someone had turned on an energy motor that morning, not only there was a smooth flow of energy in the room, there were happy vibes.

Before and During the Workshop

Bengston Hands On Healing training cd

If you are a total newbie to the Bengston Energy Healing Method®, I suggest reading his book, The Energy Cure, and/or start practicing “cycling” from his Hands On Healing training cd set before the workshop.

Because all newbies struggle at the beginning, it’s better to have something to build on before you get to the workshop. This way, you’d know better what to listen for and what to ask. You would also benefit from practicing with a large group and chatting with other participants. Often there are experienced practitioners in attendance to help you out as well.

And no worries about getting bored. Dr. Bengston is always sharing new ideas and findings.

Tips

Leave your ego, expectation, experiences at the door. Trying to impose these onto the Bengston Method might become an obstacle in mastering it.

Channel your inner mad scientist! “Can I do such and such?” Many participants would ask. Dr. Bengston would always answer “I don’t know, try it!”

Have fun with cycling. It could be having silly things on your cycling list that make you happy, or doing experiments on charging water or cotton, or testing things out on a plant, or just coming up with new ways to do any Bengston related activities all the time.

In the case of cycling, routine is the enemy.

Everyone is unique, so what and where you feel the cycling might be different than others. No need to compare or worry, just trust yourself.

Practice, Practice, Practice!

Cycling on your own can be very lonely, especially when you have tons of questions and no where to ask. So, ask about the practice groups to join after the workshop. It’s a great way to find answers and all the ways people are using the Bengston Energy Healing Method®.

Cycling with a group also seem to create a resonance that amplifies the combine strength of the energy, as some might be able to feel during the workshop.

Liberated!

During a hands-on healing practice, my friend who is relatively new to the Bengston Method, felt the resistance on the top of my head and kept her hand there for a good while. Then I discovered the sensation in my front right skull whenever I cycle was gone.

“How am I to know if I am cycling???” I thought about it for a while. Instead of letting it stop me, I decided to be like an electron–take the path of least resistance. I let go!

Not having the sense of control it’s like:

  1. Letting the rocket go free in the outer space at the top speed.
  2. Taking the training wheels off and leaving no attachment to the process and the outcome. This is very important for the manifesting process as you may already know.

As you can see, it’s even possible for a newbie to deliver healing. So, to all who are attending the workshop, say “YES” to your Jedi Power!

Past Life Healing: Brutal Force Style

Sadness welled up, triggered by simple lyrics, a song about life after the passing of his love. Only this sadness didn’t feel like mine. I am living a blessed life. After several weeks, when this sadness still surfaced with the song during random plays, determined to release this emotion, I decided to face it head-on, brutal force style.

Bringing Past Life Pain to the Surface

The morning of a day with nothing scheduled, I put on my headphone, set to loop just this one song, took a deep breath, and braced for what’s coming.

I want to watch you leave, follow behind you wondering the streets.
I’m waiting for you to turn and look at me then decide to stay eventually.

The tears came. I was watching a little boy and I was the little boy. He was peeking through a slit in a shabby wooden door as his father walked away from the lens maker’s work shed.

I want to take your little hand and say let’s go home.

I was crying now. The sorrow was deep yet without a solid root in me.

The boy was almost sure his father would change his mind the very next moment and take him home. A father who marked his anger all over his little boy’s body and heart. A father who hated his son for taking his wife’s life during the childbirth.

Talking with my Past Life Self

The boy knew that was only wishful thinking. His silent cry rang inside me, “Don’t leave me here, take me with you!”

I stepped forward and wrapped him in my arms. He looked up and said “Why doesn’t anyone love me?”

“I love you. Whenever you need a hug, think of me, you will feel me here with you.” I let him cried a little longer.

“You have to forgive the grown ups, they don’t know what you are doing to themselves and to you. You are strong, don’t ever give up. I am always here for you.”

Shifting to The End of His Life

He was dying and I was keeping him company. He was forced into the army, now wounded and bleeding to death on the battle field.

I held him and said “You can let go now, you’ve done your best.” After he left his body, I sent my gratitude along.

“Thank you. Your strength to survive this long allowed our soul to go forward in your lifetime. I will work to release the pain and always be grateful for what you have contributed to the growth of our soul.”

More Notes

The scenes I described did not appeared to me visually. I only sensed the events happening. I’ve made peace with not being able to “see” as many intuitive people can.

I only knew about this past life from a session with Ainslie MacLeod. Though this felt like real-time, I was not “reliving” that life as many people experience in the past life regressions.

As I was writing the drafts of this post, the sadness still returned when I read the lyrics. A friend then offered to use ETF (Emotional Freedom Techniques or tapping) to release this past life trauma.

When she was done, she mentioned it was easier than expected and that I must have processed a lot of it already. I guess my Brutal Force Style healing did work, just not as fast as ETF.

Later, I tested it again on my own by reading the lyrics and listening to the song and the same emotion did not return.

First Session with Ainslie MacLeod: Getting the Most Out of It

Read His Books

Whether you’ve just made an appointment for a past life reading with Ainslie MacLeod or considering getting one, give yourself plenty of time to read his books before the session.

The information Ainslie and his guides bring you are all based on what’s in these books. You do not want to waste your valuable session time on having Ainslie explain the basics that you could have learned from these books.

The Instruction: Living the Life Your Soul Intended

The Instruction: Living the Life Your Soul Intended by Ainslie MacLeod

The Instruction talks about soul ages, types, missions, fears, and more. What are yours?

For your soul types, you can take the quiz on the site. The top results were spot on compared to what Ainslie told me during the session.

In the book, he provides the Open Heart meditation to help you connect with your guides in figuring out your own soul ages, types, missions, and fears. I was not really good at meditation and not sensitive enough to get messages from my guides. I tried anyway but in the end I just picked what felt right for me.

Don’t worry about getting it wrong. It’s more important that you have something to base on in case Ainslie tells you otherwise (like he did with Oprah, about 31:11 into this audio interview).

Pay extra attention to the differences, they might be important. For me, they kept taking me back to how I was as a child, my true self.

The Transformation: Healing Your Past Lives to Realize Your Soul’s Potential

The Transformation: Healing Your Past Lives to Realize Your Soul's Potential by Ainslie MacLeod

The Transformation talks deeper about our past life fears and how it will change the future of humanity through The Transformation.

The Transformation is the upcoming shift to “Stage Four Consciousness”, the final level. In the shift to “Stage Three Consciousness” human gained the abilities of intellect. In stage four, we reconnect with our soul, resulting in the best balance of mind and spirit.

What we all need to do is to be our true selfies and become the Transformation. We can accomplish that using this book to:

  1. Identify our past life fear
  2. Take the corresponding action (motivation)
  3. Get the result (goal) of reconnecting with the part of the soul blocked by the past life fear

Depending on your situation, he and his guides might provide a specific healing exercise along with the particular fear you are facing currently. Once you know what your past life fears are, the book is also a good DIY healing tool.

After Getting the Appointment Confirmation

  • Clear the schedule of the morning or the evening before your appointment
  • Keep one to two hours open after your session ends
  • Be aware of what/who drains your energy, what keeps your spirit down, take notes on the patterns that emerged.

Preparing for the Session

The morning or the evening before, find your favorite writing instrument* and a notebook (or a stack of paper), write down ALL that plague your life especially long-term issues (physical and otherwise) without obvious origin, and in the order of intensity/urgency. (* Using a pen with poor or inconsistent ink flow would interrupt the stream of thoughts, so do find one that writes smoothly.)

If you don’t know where to start, begin by scribbling circles. When something pops into your mind, write it down, even if it doesn’t make sense. Once you start, keep going, no judging, no crossing out, don’t stop until you know you are done. Then go back to see what jumps out at you.

Review your lists from the two books, especially if it has been months since you last read them.

Read the FAQ to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

During the Session

  • Get ready to take notes with your favorite pen/pencil and paper/notebook, the session is not recorded.
  • Ainslie is really easy to talk to, just follow his lead.
  • Listen well and write as much down as possible. There will be so much information coming your way, you really don’t want to miss anything.
  • However, if something is aching to come out, speak up. Or if you are not sure about what you heard, be sure to ask for confirmation. (He mentioned the locations of the wounds that resulted in a past life death but I did not ask him to go over that again, now I am left guessing.)

After the Session

  • Take an hour or two to redo your notes while the memory is fresh.
  • In the process, you might remember things you missed, or emotional reactions you had, put those down as well.
  • Don’t stop until you are done.

In The Following Days

  • Go through your notes with both books to help your healing or growing process.
  • Pay attention to the changes in your body and your emotional states, I usually write them down or talk to a friend about it. It’s like airing out your rug, though it might take a while but once the old dusts are gone with the wind, they are gone for good.

Say Hello to Your True Self

I very much enjoyed my sessions with Ainslie. He and his guides confirmed and cleared many things for me. It has been more than six months since my first session and I am still noticing patterns that he mentioned which I couldn’t recognize at the time.

I am finally moving forward with a clear purpose, work is finally like play. Some of my physical issues also improved, not to mention how much happier and more energetic I am.

Finding your true self is an adventure that is worth the challenge. Ainslie and his guides just make it easier. I hope this will help you get the most out of your time with Ainslie.

The Transformation is happening and I am glad you are coming with me.
