PS – I share some testimonials, below.  I’d love to hear from others, as well, because your testimonials give people an idea  of the power of Paramhansa Yogananda’s healing path.  There is a special, universal healing power that we can receive when we loving call on God, Christ, Guru.divine-will-healing

Please share your thoughts in the comment field, below, or in a return email.

Testimonials from past participants: 

“Mary’s healing touch and energy work on me while she was in LA was really remarkable. It was beyond many reiki sessionI have had before. Pains and things I had built up in my heart started coming up – I could feel the energy rising from deep within my heart, up through my throat, and much was coming out in tears. She kept working on the energy and saying healing prayers and it really felt incredible to have these issues, which were nameless and unknown to me, to come up and out. Pains I didn’t even know I had. Thank you so much Mary, you have a gentle and beautiful touch and can do great healing for people.” ~ P., Los Angeles

“Mary is an incredible channel for Spirit. I hold a Master’s in Spiritual Psychology and have experienced many, many healers and healing techniques and I have never encountered a healer as powerful and gifted as Mary. She healed me of deep pain I had been carrying for 15 years around my grandmother’s death. I had gone to psychics, therapists and others all to no avail. In a single 1 ½ session with Mary, the deep pain and sadness completely lifted and were replaced by peace, joy and love for my grandmother. I am grateful beyond words.” – Julia Padawer, Santa Monica, CA

AUM AUM AUM for Swamiji…

Dear Ones,

Most of you have already heard the news of the passing of our beloved Swami Kriyanandaji… But some of my subscribers may be outside the normal Ananda circle…

Swami Kriyananda, aged 87, Ananda’s much beloved founder and spiritual leader, left his body and merged into the Infinite last evening (April 20) at 11pm Pacific time. He died in his home in Assisi, Italy (8am April 21 there).

God bless you all,

Mary Kretzmann

June 312 Dwapara

Dear Ones,

I’ve received several requests for updates about Tim since I last wrote about him in the May Newsletter. He’s doing better and better. Though he still needs a lot of rest, he can work 2-3 hours a day in the office of his business, MeditationBench.com He continues to play hammer dulcimer and he does some light gardening.

Tim’s oncologist is very pleased that the cancer (which had been large enough to block the flow from the kidneys) is shrinking already.  It seemed beyond what he was expecting from the hormone blockers alone. Thank you for your prayers! The combined effort of healing prayers, affirmations, positive thinking, music, hopefulness, western medicine, and some high powered natural supplements are moving him quickly toward healing.  But we aren’t out of the woods yet, so your prayers are still very deeply appreciated.

My mind has been immersed more deeply in affirmations lately. I even made a printable prayer card for this affirmation, below, so that it may bless others.  healingprayers.wordpress.com/2012/05/25/eternal-light/

I am submerged in eternal light.

It permeates every particle of my being.
I am living in that light.

The Divine Spirit fills me within and without.

Paramhansa Yogananda

Healing Affirmations by Paramhansa Yogananda

Tim has found inspiration in this affirmation:

My body cells are made of light.

My fleshly cells are made of Thee.

They are perfect, for Thou art perfect;

They are healthy, for Thou art Health;

They are Spirit, for Thou art Spirit;

They are immortal, for Thou art Life.


We often do this affirmation together at night:

Perfect Father,

Thy Light is flowing through Christ,

Through the saints of all religions,

Through the Masters of India, and through me.

This Perfect Light is present in all my body parts,

I am well.


I adapted the “Perfect Father” affirmation to use as a repetitive prayer throughout the day, which helps me focus my mind and energy in a positive direction. It has been powerful and comforting for me to pray in this way, deeply feeling the power of each line:

Perfect Father,

Thy Light is flowing through Christ,

Through the saints of all religions,

Through the Masters of India, and through Tim.

This Perfect Light is present in all his body parts,

He is well!


(Photo of Tim from a few years ago. See him well!)


These affirmations reassure me that we will be guided each step of the way on the road to healing:

“I will go forth in perfect faith in the power of Omnipresent Good to bring me what I need at the time I need it.”

“God is just behind my reason, today and every day, and is guiding me to do the right thing always. God is the indwelling Self of man and the sole Life of the whole universe.”


I hope these ideas can bless your family, as well. Thank you for your prayers.  God bless you!

Prayers for Tim, Update

“Life is nothing if not a continuous overcoming of problems. Every problem that waits for a solution at your hand is the religious duty imposed upon you by life itself.”   

Paramhansa Yogananda

This quote confirmed what I’ve been feeling, and gave me deeper resolve to find solutions for Tim’s healing.

Thank you for your prayers and concern for Tim.

Tim has an appointment with Dr. Robert Rowen in Santa Rosa, CA, on April 4.

  About Dr. Rowen: …To the doctors he’s trained and the patients he’s cured, Dr. Robert Rowen is known as something of a miracle worker. Indeed, Dr. Rowen receives over a dozen calls and emails a week from fellow physicians, seeking advice on how to cure their most challenging cases. Sometimes, the doctors fly their patients across the country to have Dr. Rowen examine and treat them.

    Many of these patients suffer from deadly diseases like cancer…or from stubborn ailments like diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease that have plagued them for years. Yet over half of them leave Dr. Rowen’s care symptom-free. And many leave completely cured! This includes even the toughest cases other doctors give up on!

    As it turns out, Dr. Rowen has considerably more experience practicing alternative medicine than just about any of his peers. He spent 22 years practicing in Alaska, the first state to provide statutory protection to alternative physicians…

I was impressed with Dr. Rowen when I first heard about him in January… and this feeling was “confirmed” when Swamiji recently sent us a booklet with a special healing ideas for Tim. It turns out the ideas were from Doctor Rowen. So this felt like a divine push to make it happen – NOW.  Travel is still a challenge for Tim, but we can make it; we will stay over night there. Our initial visit will be 2 hours long.

This has also been meaningful for us at this time:

    “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”

    Ralph Waldo Emerson

Please keep us in your prayers for a safe journey and for the healing light to shine all round Tim, and within him, during this visit.  May Dr. Rowen be guided as to the best ways to help Tim. And may the healing begin even now – in anticipation of the visit. Many things are now in place for healing.

Again, thank you for your loving thoughts and prayers.
