The Rising Star is a powerful self-healing system. It is "self" because all healing is self-healing. The practitioner is trained to hold the energy and create the space for you to heal on whatever level you are ready for. When we pray or meditate, we become open to the Universal energy of love, truth, peace, non-violence, and right conduct. The energy of these bring about balance to the whole being as we open to our higher belief system, which many call God, Prana, Source or many other names. The power that we receive from these beliefs can and do heal as we have seen and heard many, many times. The exchange between the teacher and practitioner is not for the healing, it is an exchange for the training, investment, and time that the teacher has put into learning to do this for you. Just like any other college course, it takes a lot to learn and an exchange helps the world go around.

This healing modality incorporates many other systems of healing from all around the world, such as India, Tibet, China, Japan, Europe and Celtic. To keep it in integrity there are guidelines as to the exchange, but it is mostly up to each teacher or practitioner to decide for themselves the appropriate exchange for their service. After all, some have spent many more years than others training in other professions such as psychotherapy, counseling, etc. and this will play a factor. All who have taken the training for this system will have been guided - from their inner guidance - to do this work to serve humanity in this way, and their love for humanity shines through each of them. This type of service is not an easy path, and they have all been trained and continue to train in how to educate anyone with an open mind as to the benefits of this most amazing system.
The Rising Star system was developed by Derek O'Neill after having travelled the world, training in many classes including yoga, martial arts and psychotherapy. It is an experiential system that has worked for many thousands of people around the world, bringing peace and relief from many forms of suffering and transforming lives for the better. Derek believes that by teaching and sharing his life's work in this way, he is following his inner and outer teachers' mission. May we all find healing in our hearts.
How does the Rising Star work?
The Rising Star raises the vibration of the aura (human energy field) and the energy field around every living thing. It also restructures your energy circuits to hold more life-force energy. In this way, your entire being is prepared to receive the higher energy of a Rising Star healing.
The Rising Star allows you and the practitioner to still your minds and transfer powerful life-force energy to the part of your being that needs it most, for your healing and rebalancing to full health. It is as if the healing energy knows precisely where it is needed most (sometimes not to the place that you think is best). It goes where it will do the most good for your overall well-being and health. You may find that the healing also has an effect on family and friends. Since we are all connected and not separate, when you change so do all around you change
During a healing session, all levels of your being are addressed – physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and energetic - thus making the Rising Star extraordinarily comprehensive and effective. Because the Rising Star works on so many different levels at once, a person receiving it, say for a bad back, may find that another illness or issue also receives healing. For example, lower back pain may be connected with unresolved father issues, or feelings of being unsupported. During a Rising Star session, all these levels receive healing - back pain, father issues and feeling unsupported - resulting in a very comprehensive and beneficial experience.
The Rising Star works on the five elements that exist within your being: fire, water, air, earth and ether. Although not always discernable to our limited human perspective, the first four elements are found in your physical body. While the fifth element, ether, refers to the part of you that is connected to a higher source.
Why are three healing sessions recommended?
During the first session your mind will want to follow what the practitioner is doing. So most people don't switch off and relax deeply. During the second session, the mind lets go of control more so that deeper issues can be addressed. In the third session, every part of your being is filled with love and light, and you are now ready to let go of the issue or dis-ease.
Are there any special requirements?
The Rising Star does not require you to have faith, follow a specific religion, or even believe in it, in order for it to be effective. It merely takes your willingness to heal and transform.
