Touched by the Hand of the Master

hand caresses face


A true master does not shout his greatness from the hilltops or through flashy adds nor does he demand recognition. The depth of his mastery is revealed powerfully during ordinary moments and simple gestures.

This took place last spring at ISTA 1 in Guatemala. I was seated next to the workshop facilitator Bruce Lyons during a lunchtime break when he noticed a speck of food that landed on my chin. He reached out with his hand to wipe it off my face. What happened next was one of those illuminating and transformative moments, that shift your consciousness and light up your psyche when you are least expecting it. In his simple touch there was so much reverence, kindness and tenderness- it took my breath away and melted my heart into openness. Bruce’s touch was an outpouring of universal consciousness as pure love, and that speck of food on my face became the most precious thing that existed in that moment.

I was being very still trying to memorise this touch, as every cell of my body was drinking in the vibrational energy of the teaching pouring into me from his direct transmission. I wanted to take it all in, to take it into the very core of my being, and into my heart. I asked myself - Can I bring this level of sacredness with which Bruce wiped the crumb off my face to everything and everyone in my life - my loved ones, my clients, my friends and strangers i meet? Can I be that way with myself, when I touch my own body, my own heart? Can I access it whenever i have to wipe off all the fallen crumbs that drop down on me throughout my life journey?

That day at a lunch table, as I was receiving from Bruce an expansive heart-opening experiences that allowed for a new window to pop open in my being, I knew i was in the presence of a true master. Months later It still feels like a huge gift — a powerful dose of new awareness received through our connectedness to contemplate and grow. This is the nature of awakening, as I experience it, not transcendent through detachment, but enheartened awareness through embodied presence. Now when I say I AM LOVE I know what it actually feels like, because the memory imprint of being touched so deeply at the lunch table during the temple training lives on in my temple body.

Healing Room Stories. Shaking in trauma release: The Missed Landing
Written by Yuliya Cohen   
Sunday, October 09, 2016
Trembling and shaking are considered to be a natural therapeutic form of trauma release mechanism. There are many trauma release exercises (TRE) that encourage and activated shaking and tremors.  The story teaches us the importance of approaching these mechanisms with care and awareness.
We were sitting on the couch in my healing room.  I was holding her in my arms as she was connecting to an emotional knot held tightly in her belly.  We knew it had to be some intense past trauma.  That is why I held her. Her body started shaking, and the shaking was growing more violent.  I kept holding her.  A long time ago, even before my career as a healer,  I was trained in catharsis based counseling, so I was totally ok with people shaking, and crying, or even screaming and shouting.  But here something was not right.  After a few moments of confusion, I knew what it was - she was completely gone, energetically I mean.  Her shaking body in my arms felt empty, almost like a hollow tube. It was a very strange feeling. Her body was here, without her.
- Hey, "I said softly”,  “Something must have happened. I feel as if you are not here, not in your body right now.  Where are you? Where did you go?”
-"I don’t know, I guess somewhere very far"  she answered, with the faraway voice, still shaking.
-"Ok, How far?” I continued calmly and gently.
-“Way, way back into the past, when I was a small child.” she continued
-"What is happening there?”
- I think my mother s shaking me.  I was told I was a colicky and she never wanted to be bothered with having to take care of us, her kids, whenever we were not feeling well. I think she is shaking me because she is annoyed and frustrated."
-"Ok, lets bring you back here then", I suggested stroking her head.  And we will bring back the baby too. Neither of you need to be there any longer, with a mother who can not nurture you.  Come back and I will nurture and comfort you. Come back now. Tell mom - no more shaking.  I am out of here and taking the baby with me. "
“Ok" she nodded.
I felt a strong wave of her energy returning, landing back with what I would describe as a perceptible energetic loud thud.  It came back powerfully and instantly, just as it left.  Except for one strange fact -  her body was still empty.
"What did you feel just now?" I asked her, rather perplexed
"Oh I came back,” she confirmed, “I kind of just landed pretty hard.  It was very strong."
I was trying to make sense of what happened. And what I saw was kind of unexpected and pretty far out:  when her energy returned, it did not re-enter her body.  Instead it landed in the pocket of space between her body in my arms and the back of the couch we were sitting on.  She simply missed!!!
- “Yes, indeed, you came back, very powerfully.  But you you know what, you missed your body”, I explained to her as I cracked up laughing. "It is like with a parachute jumper: you kind of landed back in an approximate area but you missed the landing pad. Good job overall, though! You just need a slight adjustment to actually get your energy to shift back into the body."
This experience was so Twilight Zone, that I had to bring some light and humor to it.  Both for her sake as well as mine.
"Yes, you’re right", now she was laughing too, having no problem with relating to this experience - the laughter making her more present.  "I did seem to have missed.  I didn’t realize I did it until you pointed it out."
So we laughed together as her energy shifted back into the alignment.  Her body was feeling full and warm again
And I thought - other people get high to have experiences like that.  I get paid.  I am so lucky.
So for all of you out of body travelers out there - a word of advice -be mindful of your landings. There is a chance you may miss the runway back into your body.

Healing the Energy Cords - The Ties that Bind
Written by Yuliya Cohen   
Saturday, December 10, 2011

As the holiday season appraoches, would you like to know how to remain energetically connected in a healthy way to your spouse, your family members, or in any other relationship?

In this one day workshop, on Saturday December 17, from 10am-5 pm.

Yuliya will teach:

· Principles of formation and healing of "energy cords".  You will learn to see, draw and analyze the energy cords to specific people in your life with whom you  have formed relationships.

· How to recognize the "need" that forms the energetic basis of any relationship and renders us vulnerable to energy loss.

· How to restructure energy cords in a way that stops energetic drain, by releasing the dysfunctional parts of the energetic connection.  For More Information and to sign for the workshop go to

A True Story of A broken Mother/Son connection

I want to share with you a true story that demonstrates how important it is to be aware of what energy cords are, how they are formed and work so that you can develope your own Energy Intelligence.

Kate is a woman who recently came to me for a treatment. Her lower chakras were shut down which blocked energy in her lower body.  Her complaint -- being chronically tired and a host of immune problems.  Her current state of health turned out to be an energy cord related issue.  A year earlier, an energy healer told her to cut her connection to her son. The healer said that Kate had a lot of cords to her son, because she worried about him.  That out of concern for his well-being, Kate was giving him the darkest and most negative murky energy the healer had ever encountered.  Therefore, the healer insisted on separating the two of them by cutting all the cords between the mother and the son,

Following the session Kate remembers feeling depressed and guilty because she was giving her son all this bad energy.  She cried all evening afterwards, feeling very, very lonely.  Shortly after that, her physical problems emerged.

As it turned out, her emotional pain and physical ailments were a result of a misguided and confused energetic diagnosis and treatment.

First, the dark energy noticed by the healer was not coming from the mother and it was not at all generated by her worry about her son.  Her son had just lost a close friend to a suicide, and the dark energy was actually related to the person who committed the suicide. Her son connected to that energy through his cords to that friend, not to his mother.   By disconnecting the mother, the healer unintentionally only aggravated the problem – not only she fail to take care of the source of the murky energy, but she also caused both the mother and son to become even more disconnected and lonely.

Kate sighed with relief when we restored the energy cords to her son. “I should never have trusted her, because her readings felt very aggressive and negative, and made me uncomfortable.  Now I realize, that what she was saying felt wrong, and I should have trusted my own truth.”

She understood that true healing makes you feel energetically and emotionally expanded  rather then constricted.  Kate also came to realize that energy cords to those we love, particularly to our children, can never be really cut.  She remembered that after the cord was cut, she could not bear being completely disconnected from her son, who was away at an overnight program in another state. To comfort herself she thought – “At the end of everyday we still look at the same moon.” So she wrote him a letter saying “When you look at the moon, remember I am looking at it as well.”  Ultimately, she just created another way of connecting – a tribute to motherly love.

This story is a testimony to why this information is vital to your successful living and healing. Relationships affect all aspects of our lives. Parents, children, siblings and lovers are some of those with whom we form "energy cords" that, like a fetus to its mother, bind us to another person.

When we consistently direct our thoughts and energy to a particular person, we begin to establish an energetic cord that connects us to them.   Any time you emotionally connect to someone, you create an attachment through an energy cord. The more you think of that person, the stronger is the connection, and the thicker the cord becomes. Energy cords not only connect us to other people, but to places and even to ideas.

These cords of energy attach to a particular chakra of the body. The energy exchange takes place regardless of distance or your desire to ignore it, as we are continuously influencing each other.

The exchange of energies can either nourish us, or render us drained, assaulted and dis-empowered. The kind of energy flowing through the cords, and the way in which the energy is exchanged, determines whether relationships are beneficial or destructive.

"Energy vampires" are those individuals to whom we consistently lose our energy since they maintain their energy levels by draining other people's energy. Some of them do it unconsciously, others do it deliberately.

My first experience with the energy cords took place over 20 years ago when I was just a beginning healer.  A client, a woman in her late 40's, was complaining of continuing stomach pain.  Her doctors were unable to discover what was causing her symptoms.  When I tuned into her energy system, I received an image of two cords protruding from her abdominal area.  Their ends were cut off and tied in knots. It was as if she was trying to sever her connection to someone, by preventing her energy going in that direction.  It turned out that two of her sons just left home for college.  They had always been a closely knit family, so when they moved away she made a decision to be a "good" mother, which, in her mind, meant letting them go.  So she cut her emotional and energetic connection to her sons and knotted the ends to make sure it did not get undone. As a result, all she was left with was a sense of disconnectedness and persistent abdominal (as well as emotional) pain.

A common approach, of cutting your connections to another person, can be painful and shocking to both your energy system and the person on the other end.

Most often, instead of bringing about the desired lasting healing, cord cutting creates a host of unwanted painful sensations, feelings, and emotions. Besides, you can never really cut the "blood connections" to your family members without producing a devastating effect on your family tree.  And while you can disconnect from non-family relationships, the right approach in most cases is to simply release the dysfunctional parts of your relationship and keep the connection.

General Attributes of Energy Cords

  • Constant thoughts about a specific person, place or idea.
  • A sense of loss of energy that accompanies those thoughts.
  • Feeling drained after a conversation or a meeting with that person, visiting that place or thinking about that idea.
  • An inability to resolve the past related to that person, place or idea, and live in the present.

The Energy Cords workshop will inform, inspire and educate you, advancing you towards a mastery of energy intelligence that will keep you connected with the spiritual realm.  Energy intelligence is a skill that was, up to now, only available to a select group.  Now it can be accessible to all.  Please join us.  Invite your friends

How To Work Smart All Day Long
Written by Yuliya Cohen   
Saturday, January 22, 2011

Your mental state and ability to complete tasks varies over the course of the day. 

 Here are some tips you can use to work smart all day long for maximum performance:


  1.  Creativity and the ability to process information peaks in the morning.  It's an ideal time for writing and generating ideas.
  2. Short-term memory also peaks in the morning.  This is a good time to review notes for a meeting.
  3. Alertness peaks shortly before noon. This is an ideal time to tackle complex problems that require careful logic amd planning.
  4. Long-term memory peaks in the late afternoon and early evening. This is a good time to soak up new information.
Last but not least, it helps if you can make these activities stimuating. The more fascinated and interested in a task you are, the less of a chore it becomes.
