The Oneness Blessing (also known as Deeksha) is a non-denominational transmission of divine energy through intention, words, presence and, most commonly, through a laying on of hands. This transfer helps people move away from the sense of separation towards a sense of connectedness and oneness with all creation, allowing feelings of bliss, ease, peace, joy, and love to be more fully experienced in one’s daily life. It is not a teaching or concept, but rather an experience or process that supports all paths or beliefs.
Awakening is not a destination. It is a never-ending journey.
The Oneness Blessing is not a concept, nor a religion, nor does it require a certain belief system. The Oneness Blessing is one way that the divine can reach out to humanity; it is a gift, a benediction of grace. Each recipient of the energy brings to the experience their own concepts of the Ultimate, be they religious, scientific, profane or divine.
The Oneness Blessing is a benediction or transfer of an awakened energy or intelligence which, over time, is designed to bring about the state of Oneness in the recipient. It has often been said that if you take one step towards God, then God will take a hundred steps towards you. We have so many ways to take a step towards the divine: prayer, meditation, chanting — in fact every kind of spiritual practice in every tradition.
Those who receive the Oneness Blessing, either one time or repeatedly over weeks or months, report that it impacts their lives in many ways. Most people report a deeper sense of peace and calm in the midst of external change, and a sense of joy or happiness that has no outer cause. People also report health issues clearing up, greater intimacy and harmony in relationship, greater creativity and capacity to make decisions, often resulting in greater worldly and financial success and wellbeing. Ultimately, repeatedly receiving the Oneness Blessing over a prolonged period leads to a profound and direct Awakening into Oneness with all that is.
There may have been times in your life when the continuous chatter of the mind momentarily quieted or stopped altogether; the usual worries, pressures, and boredom of daily life just fell away, replaced by an inner calm and vibrant joy in the heart; and a sense of connection or oneness with everything. Deeksha has this affect on the recipient. With each Deeksha the affects and benefits are accumulative and more noticeable.
The Oneness Blessing is a process by which we are re-connected with this quiet, intelligent center of ourselves.
The experience of causeless joy, stillness, and love is available to us in every moment, but owing to various factors, our life experiences and the unconsciousness of the world into which we are born, this reality has become hidden from our sight; we are identified with the mind and things seem stressful and problematic. We struggle against our life situation, our family, our work environment, and even against ourselves. This creates a sense of separation from everything around us, and from this sense of separation arises fear, confusion, meaninglessness, and loneliness. We experience life as if we were “an isolated fragment in a hostile Universe”. The Oneness Blessing is a gentle, precise process of awakening from this state of isolation into an ever-deepening experience of connection with ourselves and the world around us.
The Oneness Blessing is a transfer of divine, intelligent energy. The process works by creating a neurobiological shift in the brain and awakening certain energy centers in the physical and subtle bodies. This shift in consciousness frees you from the suffering created by the mind, balances the body’s natural healing energies, and attunes the brain with the fields of unity, bringing an end to the illusion of apparent separation. Once you receive the blessing, a gradual awakening process begins that leads you naturally to a lasting state of oneness, inner peace, and well-being.
The Oneness Blessing is given by a trained facilitator using a very gentle process to transmit the energy either by laying hands on your head, or merely by intention. The process takes anywhere from a few seconds to a couple minutes, and can be done in person, long distance or by phone if necessary, or even by transmittal through photographs.
The Oneness Blessing initiates a neurobiological change in the brain that when complete enables the senses to be free from the interference of the mind. When the senses are unclouded by the mind’s interpretations, a natural clarity of perception occurs with accompanying spontaneous feelings of joy, inner calmness and connection to the oneness in everything.
Subjective experiences during the Oneness Blessing vary enormously from one person to another, and even for the same person, from one Blessing to another. It is sometimes felt very strongly, sometimes in a quite subtle way and many times not subjectively felt at all. It is sometimes blissful, while sometimes buried memories or feelings are brought to the surface, and there may be a temporary experience of discomfort. Some people may experience nothing at all, and only days or even weeks later do they notice any effect. Ultimately all this does not matter so much, for whatever the experience, the Blessing initiates a process which leads to the Awakening into Oneness.
Whatever the subjective experience, the recipient can trust that the process of Oneness has begun, a process designed by Divine Grace for your own nature and uniqueness that will lead gradually (or sometimes spontaneously) into your own Awakening.
Oneness Blessings feel different and unique to each individual. Some people feel rushes of energy in their heads, some see colors, others feel various emotions, yet others fall into various mystical states, and some feel nothing at all. Furthermore, the same person may have different experiences from one blessing to the next. Often, the effects of the blessings are not fully experienced until hours or days after the blessing is received. It is important to realize that the intensity or kind of subjective experience that one has is not an indicator of one person’s blessing being any better or worse than someone else’s, or their own previous blessings. The important effect is the change in overall life experience over the course of receiving blessings and over the course of your life.
There is nothing for you to do, nothing is asked of you. The blessing cannot force itself on you and serves only to open a connection with the divine forces of love, intelligence, and grace. It is important to note that the facilitator has no intention of his or her own as to how the energy should work in your life; they are merely a conduit for the divine to act according to its own intelligence, providing you with exactly what you need in terms of your own evolution. It may be helpful to spend a few minutes in silence, meditation, or prayer before and immediately after receiving the blessing; in this way the mind is less cluttered with thoughts from the day, and you are more open to the flow of grace.
Experiences during the transfer vary and can be strong and obvious or subtle and not so apparent. Sometimes the receiver may experience a tingling sensation in the head, a feeling of blissful energy flowing through the body, or you may in fact not feel anything at all; this is not so important. The receiver can trust that no matter what he or she experiences during the transfer, a process specific to your own nature has been initiated that will lead you gradually (or sometimes suddenly) into your own, personal awakening. Having particular or “spiritual” experiences during the blessing is in fact not relevant and in no way should you be concerned if you do not feel something specific.
Most people have experiences of newfound inner peace, joy, harmony, freedom, clarity, self-awareness, balance and/or oneness with life. In some cases, people also have experiences of spiritual awakening, expanded consciousness, universal oneness or deep realizations about oneself, the universe, and some even reach God-realization. There are also cases in which some people feel little or nothing. Generally speaking, it takes a series of transfers until one begins to truly feel the effects of this energy. People often have enlightenment experiences and these are meant to lead to a permanent state of enlightenment. While there is no formula for this process, generally speaking, the first few blessings are aimed towards clearing energy blocks so this new energy can be received, the next few blessings then begin a process of cleansing and purification. The following blessings then help to move one into a higher state of being.
Once the Oneness Blessing is received, a process begins whereby you become gradually awakened. It is actually a biological process in which each transfer helps to awaken certain neuro-pathways and crucial energies related to enlightenment. Other pathways related to the sense of separation, which are considered the primary reason for our suffering, become greatly reduced.
The state of separation is the common experience of human beings. In this reality, the oneness of life is not seen and instead all things, events, and people are experienced as separate and non-connected. From this perspective, such qualities as competitiveness, pride, dominance, the need to control, loneliness, neediness, insecurity, confusion, boredom and feelings of emptiness arise. Each transfer will help a person to move from the sense of separation towards a sense of connectedness and oneness with other people and eventually with all of life. One begins to realize a deep state of happiness, joy, and peace that is naturally arising and free from conditions.
Each person will undergo a unique process. The degree of transformation that is received is different for everyone. It depends partly on the openness of the receiver, but mostly on the intelligence within the energy that knows what is best for you. For example, you may wish for lasting peace in your life, however what would actually serve you higher is to first experience previously unmet or undigested pain—that was caused to you by another or caused by you to another. Or you may wish for a deeper, more conscious relationship with your life partner, however it is shown to you that you must first forgive the pain that was caused to you by your mother or father, etc. The intelligence which underlies the Oneness Blessing, the Divine Presence, knows what it is you need to take the next step in your own evolution. The Blessing thus serves as a vehicle to connect you with such intelligence and presence.
Having a strong background in prayer or meditation or another spiritual practice may be helpful in this process, however sometimes a strong spiritual background comes with solid concepts which can actually block one’s degree of openness. Many people with virtually no spiritual background have received beautiful states quite easily. For example, in the villages of India and Africa or areas where the people are not highly educated, deep experiences of oneness broke out as a major phenomenon with many villagers receiving the state in only one or two blessings. Ultimately, the most important qualities on the side of the seeker are openness, gratitude, and sincerity.
Anyone of any age may receive the Oneness Blessing, including children and babies. It is not necessary to attend the Oneness University in order to receive the Blessing or its corresponding benefits. Along with human beings, the Oneness Blessing may also be transferred to animals and other living matter.
For those who are pregnant or suffering from severe psychological illness, such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, please let the Blessing giver know as there are specific guidelines to follow in these cases.
The Oneness Blessing can be transferred by one who has received the transmission and training during a special process now offered around the world, including in the US. Such people are referred to as Oneness Facilitators or Oneness Blessing Givers. These ones then work, as an empty vessel, through which this energy may transfer to the recipient.
No. While the Oneness Blessing emerged out of the cultural and religious context of ancient India, it does not adhere to any religion, any particular belief system, or to any spiritual path. In fact, it has been said by the founders of the Oneness University that this shift in consciousness is not a religious or spiritual process at all, but rather one of neurobiology.
The Oneness Blessing brings about changes in the energy in the brain, which gradually enables the senses to be free from the interference of the mind. When the senses are unclouded by the mind’s interpretations, a natural clarity of perception occurs with spontaneous feelings of joy, inner calm, and intimacy with all that is. All of these changes occur independently of belief, faith, or philosophy.
The Oneness Blessing is given every day all over the world by people of all different races, religions and spiritual practices. It has been embraced by Christian Bishops and priests, by Muslim Imams, by Buddhists, Hindus, secular humanists, and agnostics. Each has found that the Oneness Blessing enhances their particular religious faith (or worldviews) and experience. It is not necessary to change your religion, or to adopt any new philosophy, behavior, or practice to give or to receive the Oneness Blessing.
The Oneness Blessing does not belong to any religion or belief; it is a “dogma free” universal energy that can be received by anyone, whichever path they choose to follow. It works uniquely and intelligently to connect you directly with the truth of your own being.
It is widely accepted that our planet and our species is facing a crisis of unprecedented proportions. You need only glance at a newspaper or television to see the immense changes that are occurring at this time. Many eminent authorities agree that we must pass through a quantum leap in the evolution of collective consciousness, or possibly perish. Our planet, and all of humanity, is currently undergoing a major evolutionary transformation. This is impacting our environment, our social structures, and our individual and collective consciousness.
The Oneness Blessing has become available at this particular time as an aid to our evolution into the collective state of Oneness. Many spiritual traditions, have spoken of a shift of consciousness that would make itself available at this time in human history, as necessary for the next phase of our personal and collective evolution.
This area is one of the most complex, controversial, and fascinating aspects of the Oneness Blessing, and one that the scientific community is currently exploring. The founders of the Oneness University, along with the young guides who conduct the University’s courses, have seen that one’s state of consciousness is a direct result of the flow of certain patterns of energy within the various parts of the human brain.
In short, the Oneness Blessing has been seen to increase activity in the frontal lobe, in particular in the chronically underactive right portion of the frontal lobe, more specifically in the right parietal area. Dr. Andrew Newberg, from the University of Pennsylvania, and others have conducted a tremendous amount of research on persons in deep states of prayer and meditation.
The Oneness Blessing shifts energy from chronically overactive thinking centers of the brain to underactive frontal lobe calming centers. This “re-wiring” of the brain enables the senses to become free from the interference of the mind. When the senses are unclouded by the mind’s interpretations, a natural clarity of perception occurs with accompanying feelings of joy, inner peace, connection, and Oneness. These feelings are causeless in nature and not a product of any particular experience or life circumstance.
This experiencing of reality as-it-is, which has been described in many spiritual traditions, is often referred to as the “natural state.” The Oneness Blessing provides a doorway to such state, which involves an experience of reality through the senses without the normal filters of the mind and its conceptual overlays.
Let go of all expectations and if this feels right for you, or you would like to experience this, simply open your heart and say ‘yes’ to the experience. Let the blessings and the divine energy do the rest. The universe will respond in perfect timing.
As you keep helping others your heart flowers.
Becoming aware of one's resistance is the process of transformation.
