Laulima is a Hawaiian word meaning cooperation or many hands.
In this way, is used to describe hands on healing. During my European Lomi Sharing Tour in March, I had some really wonderful experiences. I’d like to share with you the details of one man’s transformational encounter with Laulima.
During our Kua Lua Hawaiian Backwalking class in Switzerland, our beautiful host asked if we needed a demo body to work on. Her husband has been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and she wanted to see if we could work with him. She was not sure if Hawaiian backwalking would be appropriate for him in his condition. After checking in with spirit, I kept getting a big YES to work with him, even if only to walk on him standing along side the body.
Before beginning, I had all the students gather in a circle around him. Half of the students gathered around him and placed their hands on him. The other half gathered in a greater circle around the inner circle and placed their hands on the backs of those in front. We all chanted together and sent 3 big Ha- breaths. The tears were streaming down my face as I felt the overwhelming love and care offered by our laulima circle. The magnitude of energy pouring through was so powerful!!!!
Afterward, I asked him how he felt. He shared that he could feel the two rings of energy that surrounded him distinctly and that he had held back his tears because he didn’t want to cry. I knew that the tears that had poured out from me were to help move his energy where he was not able to in the moment. This is beautiful confirmation of how connected we are when we stand in someone’s sacred energy space.
Our laulima circle was an incredible demonstration of just how much power is generated when we gather together with loving intention.
This practice of laulima is a concept shared by Kumu Harry Uhane Jim found in this video. This cooperative force can also send healing over great distance as we meditate on our desired outcome.
