Master Yap Soon-Yeong
I have been a provider of alternative, indigenous medicine for the past
twelve years. I do not use herbs, exotic remedies, nutrients, acupuncture,
suction cups, moxibustion, massage, bone-setting, laying on of hands,
chanting, prayer, finger-pointing, hand-shining, magnetic therapy,
peculiar instruments and equipment and shamanic practices. Someone
who comes to me for treatment simply lies down comfortably (often
falling asleep) for a half hour while I sit quietly at a distance of three feet
from their head. Then I teach that client and my students a kind of slow
dance-like exercise which, as contrasted with common exercises, does
not require any strength. Students also do a kind of moving meditation
while absorbed in their own vigorous dance.
Ever since I became a full time alternative energy practitioner in early
1989, I have treated, at my Energy Healing Center, 8000 people with
various illnesses and health problems. My work is becoming
increasingly more known. My friend of nine years, Dr. Chok Hiew, a
psychology professor at a Canadian University has taken an exceptional
interest in my healing. Chok, who has had a life-long interest in
meditation, eastern healing arts, and various states of consciousness
found it so promising that he learned my CFQ and has been promoting
this approach to healing and spiritual transformation at numerous
training workshops and conferences in the USA, Canada and South East
Asia. The participants in these groups are mostly therapists, health-care
professionals, and clinicians. Chok also authored two books about it:
“Energy Meditation: Healing the Body, Freeing the Spirit-In
Conversation with Master Yap Soon Yeong,” and, “ Tao of Healing:
The Incredible Golden Light.”
My system makes a break from Western medicine, Oriental medicine,
supplements and herbal remedies, Shamanism and Qigong. For the
Chinese community, there are medicinal halls or stores run by traditional
Chinese physicians that are stocked with imported and local herbs, roots,
insects, reptile and animal parts, and packaged ready-touse herbal
remedies. The ingredients are sometimes brewed in a clay pot of water
for several hours. The taste is frequently awful. It appears, however, that
the number of these medicinal halls is dwindling. Vitamins,
supplements, and herbal remedies became popular in the 1980’s and
90’s, often claimed to have been prepared from ancient secret formulae,
promising cure and prevention of all diseases. However, interest in these
seem to have faded in the last few years. Shamanism too has also been
very much an indigenous part of Asian culture. Consulting and seeking
divine intervention is commonplace. The ethnic Malay community may
seek help from “bomohs”or medicine men reputed to possess
supernatural powers and acknowledged as healers; the Chinese seek out
temple mediums who go into a trance and offer advice and remedies; the
Indians have their Hindu temples where advice on treating disease is
available. Shamans ranging from temple mediums (using Taoist beliefs),
monks (trained in Theravada Buddhism), Malay bomohs, Taoist
exorcists and religious consultants, to name a few, are all available.
Meditative systems of exercise called Qigong became popular in the
late 70’s and early 80’s where under the practitioner developed the
ability to cure diseases with supernatural powers acquired through such
practices. Many forms of Qigong issued from Taiwan and mainland
China. Between 1985 and 1995, large groups of people were seen
practicing energy exercise in the parks every morning and there was an
upsurge of claims of the Qigong masters. In the past three years or so
interest in Qigong had declined, probably because too much was
promised and too little delivered. The recent crackdowns in mainland
China contributed to the awareness of its ineffectiveness.
My system does not employ any of the above methods. I started my
energy healing without claiming any lineage from China and so my
worth as a healer was, at first, in question. However, my CFQ healing
system has steadily gained acceptance and is getting known far and wide.
In writing this book, I make no attempts to cite other books. The
healing strategies reported are all derived from the insights of
“instinctual knowledge” gained in meditative states of wisdom. Prior to
learning deep meditation for finding solutions to healing issues, I read
several hundred books in a hope for developing better skills. But, since
1993, I have found treating disease through meditation more effective so
that I have now become totally reliant on this method. Reading draws in
information that blocks me from picking up intuitive wisdom.
This book narrates an experiential account of my involvement with
CFQ, its development, training methods for promoting self-healing and
healing others, and discoveries related to treating untreatable and
incurable illnesses. I wish to present this book in a direct, clear, and
reader-friendly style. I have entrust Dr. Hiew with this task. The theme
of this book is to relax, be at peace, and allow your vast human
resilience spirit sort out your problems. The techniques presented here
are for you to care for yourself. You can learn to be self reliant in
overcoming all health problems. Our primordial human birthright is to
live a healthy and long life. This book is offered to help you learn how
to lay claim to that privilege.
A Case Example: The dying woman was gasping for breath with
jerky tremors down her legs. Her eyelids were wide opened, the eyes
dull and completely rolled up showing the whites. Her mouth was
gaping with a protruding, folded tongue that was dessicate. She had
been this way since lapsing into coma after a massive stroke several
days earlier. After being hospitalized for five days she was released and
the family made arrangements for the funeral. It was obvious that she
would be gone at any moment. I told the family that although no one
could do anything for her, I could give it a try. They agreed.

After a few minutes tapping and stroking down on her abdomen and
body, I went into a twenty-minute meditation. Nothing obvious
happened other than that her breathing appeared to deepen and her
kicking motions were reduced. I told the family that I would return in
two days if needed. Against all expectations, she continued to survive.
On my next visit, I noticed that her eyes were opened slightly, moving
normally and blinking frequently. Her tongue had receded and was
moist with normal saliva. Fluid had returned to her body, an important
sign of recovery in TCM (Traditional Oriental Medicine). Her body was
supple and she could breathe easily. There was a whitish membrane
over her eyes and tongue. Blisters were evident all over her mouth
(which took two weeks more to clear). She was coming out of her coma.

I continued with twice-weekly treatments. After seven weeks, I reduced
it to once a week. By the fifth session, even though she was unable to
talk or move, her expression showed recognition of visitors. She was
attentive and tears were evident during conversations. Ten sessions
later she could move her neck, sit up to watch TV and show visible
reactions. Her rigid limbs were gradually relaxing and moving.
Throughout this period she was fed with liquid food, without any medication.

By the twentieth session her consciousness, awareness and memory
seemed largely to have returned. Her expressions showed understanding
and she could respond to questions about what she liked and disliked.
She tried to speak by making sounds. She could move all four limbs
slowly, albeit with limited mobility. The amazing part was that her
paralyzed side did not lag very much behind in recovery except for some
visible wasting of muscles. She could by now be seated in a car and be driven around.

Perfect Peace equals
Perfect Boundlessness equals
Compassion-Relaxation-foy equals
Complete freedom and harmony equals
Emptiness of all that conflicts with your Perfection.
Equals the Ultimate Destiny
Ushering in CFQ
The need for treatment of diseases is obvious. Large numbers of people
with health problems are busily seeking remedies. There maybe an
equally large group suffering pain passively. These people are resigned to
the idea that nothing can help them. They have not benefited either from
mainstream medicine or the methods of alternative medicine tried, or
ready-to-use remedies and food supplements. For their sakes it is very
important to discern what went wrong.

The reality is that healing originates from a person’s own system.
Any external help, remedies, or medication can at best only enhance a
person’s bodily functions enabling them to overcome problems from
within. When a person develops an attitude of dependency on other
people or some remedy, that person limits the power of their body’s
natural wisdom. While all problems are real and need genuine attention,
many are intensified by the mind’s fabrications. Looking for people to fix
a problem seems natural. It is apparently justified in the sufferer’s hard
work making money to spend on their cure. They often can not forgive
themselves for failing to get even the most expensive treatment.
However, treatment itself sometimes gives rise to side effects that can
become life threatening.

For a person’s bodily system to function well and thus clear problems
or prevent problems the body must relax and settle down. This initiates
the stilling of the heart, which reduces emotional conflicts and
disturbances, slows down mental anxiety, and loosens the body. All this
activates the self-repair response. This is the self reliant procedure
needed. We simply cannot depend solely upon experts to bring about
desired changes. People must spend time each day to make the right
things happen. Without that their efforts are not good enough.

The development of medical science and health care services
approaches can be seen as natural efforts arising from our need to deal
with the problems of life. They are part of the “methods-of-the-world,”
health-seeking creations inspired by the “ fix it” mentality. Disease
remedies range from conventional, recognized medical approaches to
alternative medical approaches to less reputable approaches. Whatever
your choice, if it solves your problem and if you are not worried about
any future problems, there may be no need to introduce any new
possibilities into your life. If, however, you are interested in out-of-theworld
methods, CFQ training promises a true cure for a variety of
diseases including the eradication of the suffering brought by pain and
discomfort. Nature has given you a body that is energetically functional,
ordered to keeping you alive without any problems for your entire
lifespan. It is hardly in your best interests to tamper with this order by
being negative. A simple willingness to accept your problems will
reduce your pain and suffering by undermining the anxiety and anger that
often arise from negative thoughts and attitudes. Let go, let your body
relax, let your muscles loosen. Disease symptoms will dissipate and
healing can begin its course.

What about CFQ training? Sincerity, justice and honesty are required.
If anyone is not willing to examine the effects of their practice honestly
they waste their time trying the process. Benefits will only be temporary
as they convince themselves that the practice is not effective. The
“ undoing” feature of CFQ is the direct opposite of normal “ doing.”
Undoing can lack excitement and may even seem boring for beginners.
Such boredom, if observed without judgment and allowed to persist over
a period of time, reveals the deeper experiences of peace and joy.
Excitement arouses the body’s systems making a person feel happy and
satisfied but it also fabricates a craving and leaves behind a residue which
eventually leads to ill-health (a high price to pay).The person becomes
compelled by the craving to constantly look for excitement. The absence
of further excitement makes the person feel lost and depressed. Peace and
joy arise from stillness or not-doing. They are profound, lasting and healing.

During practice, the letting-go of negative traits and tendencies from
deep within arouses the mind. Attempts to fight the thoughts will make
them stronger and entangle you deeper. The right way, the way that is in
your best interest, is to detach yourself from the thoughts and allow them
to say whatever they like. In this way, destructive thoughts cannot pick a
fight with you. You loosen their power and grip on you, dissolving and
clearing them out. Proceed with your practice unconditionally. It is not
worth giving anything distracting power, not even your diseases, health
problems, or whether you get well or not. Getting well is natural. Don’t
think of it as impossible. Detach, let go. Just do your practice, everyday,
the same as you eat, work, bathe, sleep, read papers, or watch TV.

With an appreciation of letting-go and freedom from any intention to
fabricate or retain sensations, CFQ practice eventually leads to a state of
the “sensation of no sensations.” During such practice, you feel freedom,
boundlessness, looseness, weightlessness, peace, joyousness and a
of the body. The pleasant sensations continue throughout the rest of the
day. Normal physical activities become effortless. The mind becomes
clear, quiet and alert, and thinking becomes sharp. The spirit becomes
peaceful and centered so that hardly any incident can provoke an
emotional disturbance. In this way the body’s systems are brought
to optimum functioning. Where is pain and suffering then? The
question is irrelevant as diseases do not arise in this state.
Transformation and transcendence are set on course. 
One’s final destiny approaches.

I also gratefully acknowledge Charlotte Kaiser for her drawings,
and Debbie West and Paulette Kelly for their willingness
to do whatever was needed to prepare this manuscript for publication.
I am grateful to my researchers, Stephanie Roth, Shelby
Hammit, and Jeanne Farrens, for their long hours and excellent
abilities; to Kristen McCall, who cheerfully and tirelessly transcribed
over three thousand pages of lecture material; and to Ken
Weintrub for generously assisting me to hear my words as others
will when they read this book. I wish to further express my
gratitude to Robert E. Williams for his time and beautiful photographic
contributions; my deep appreciation to Susan Rothschild,
who can work miracles with light and a camera; and
grateful acknowledgment to Karen Haskin for her generosity, her
remarkable talent, and her exquisite illustrations. I am profoundly
grateful to Margie M. Smith for her computer drawings,
for her technical assistance, and, most especially, for having traveled
the path before me and for possessing the expertise to have
brought this book to publication.
I extend heartfelt appreciation to my editorial staff, Maria
Bartolotta, Susan Brown, and Jeanne Farrens for their dedication,
talents, and generosity, and sincerest gratitude to them for their
continued support, affection, and friendship. I would like especially
to acknowledge Jeanne Farrens, for her love of both language
and healing; her encouragement and commitment, more
than that of any other, assisted me in completing this work.
Finally, to those who lovingly supported me throughout this project,
and to all who patiently waited for this book, thank you.

The Ancient and Modern Mystery
In my twenty years as a healer and teacher, the one
question I can count on every new student to ask
is "What's a aura?" From antiquity there has been
a myriad of literary and pictorial descriptions of the aura. Sometimes
it has been depicted as a luminous radiation surrounding
the body. Frequently, it has been pictured as a kind of light around
the head—which some religious traditions call a halo. Most of
us are familiar with paintings of haloed Christian saints. In earlier
Chinese and Japanese art, a single and sometimes a triple halo
surrounds the head of images of the bodhisattva or Buddha. In
ancient Egyptian culture, the aura was often depicted as wings
enfolding the body. In Native American tradition, the radiant
aura of the buffalo has given rise to the legend of the white buffalo.
When Matthew (17:2) describes the transfiguration of Christ, he
says that Jesus's face "did shine as the sun," and "his raiment
was white as the light." Luke (9:29) adds that Jesus's raiment
was "glistering." This is a Biblical description of Christ's aura,
which the Apostles Peter, James, and John were able to see when
they were taken by their Master to a mountain just prior to his
People who are able to see auras have often reported seeing
a kind of luminous radiation surrounding an individual, usually
consisting of one or sometimes several colors. We now know that
the aura, or auric field, relates to the electromagnetic field, which
emanates from all matter. This field of energy, which usually
extends five or six inches around the body, is outside the range
of normal vision and in what is sometimes termed the realm of
psychic sight. But even those who can't see the aura can still
have an experience of it. The aura is what keeps us from bumping
our shopping carts into one another in the supermarket. It's what
allows us to sense another's presence in a darkened room, and
it's what makes someone turn to look at us across a crowded

In centuries past, when the nightmares we know
of as cities had yet to be born, we lived in
harmony with the earth and used her treasures
wisely. Many knew the old magics of herbs and plants.
Knowledge was passed down from one
generation to another, and so the lore was widely
circulated and used. Most country folk knew one
herb that was a powerful protection against evil, or
a certain flower that produced prophetic dreams,
and perhaps a sure-fire love charm or two.
Witches had their own intricate operations of
herbal magic, as did the magicians and alchemists.
Soon a body of magical knowledge accumulated
surrounding the simple herbs that grew by fastrunning
streams, in verdant meadows, and high on lonely cliffs.
Many of our ancestors, however, looked to the
stars, away from the earth, and dreamed of greater
things. In racing toward mechanized perfection,
humanity became orphaned of the earth, and much
of the old lore was forgotten.
Fortunately, it was not lost completely. Witches
became the keepers of the secrets of the earth; thus,
they were looked upon with fear by those who had
already turned their backs on the Old Ways. Terror
and hatred forced the Witches into hiding, and for
centuries their secrets re-mained untouched.
When the old Witches died, many of their secrets
died with them, for as the centuries passed there
were fewer and fewer who cared to learn the
ancient arts of magic.
Today we are experiencing a resurgence of earth
awareness. Ecological organizations prosper.
Recycling is a booming business. People are
turning away from chemicals and artificially
preserved foods to more healthy fare.
Herbs long unadored have once again come into
their own. But aside from hints and speculation, the
magical art of herbalism has largely been left
unexplored and unexplained.
This book is an attempt to fill this gap in herbal
knowledge. Though these instructions have long
been the pro-vince of the Witch and her kin, all that
is required to successfully practice magical
herbalism is an earnest desire to better your life,
and the lives of those you know and love.
This is a complete and practical guide. No
esoteric, misty treatise, it should serve well as an
introduction to herbal magic—the postive aspects
of herbal magic. Aside from an appendix that
discusses the use of baneful herbs, no poisoning,
cursing, controlling, compelling, binding, or
otherwise evil magical information is contained
herein, for such practices have no place in the
divine magic of the herbalist.
In magic, especially herbal magic, an herb is a
plant prized for its vibrations, or energies. Thus,
the herbs of this book include seaweeds, cacti,
trees, fruits, and flowers that one might not
normally consider to be herbs.
Recent advances in science have enabled us to
photographically record these vibrations through
the use of Kirilian photography. Thus, science once
again vindicates magic.
There are Witches still, who walk unshod upon
the earth and listen to the murmurings of the trees
and garland themselves with sacred herbs while
the Moon watches far above.
What remains of their fabled lore is fragmented; a
patchwork of beliefs, knowledge, and rituals.
These remnants, however, are just as effective
today as when they were born in a more magical age.
Herbal magic is one of the easiest, safest, and
most joyous methods of reestablishing earth roots,
of returning to a healthy and natural life. It touches
the essence of life itself with simple rituals and few props.
The magic is in the herbs—and in you. Herbal
magic is a cooperation between plant and human,
between earth and heaven, between microcosm and
macrocosm—a union of energies forged to produce
change by methods that outsiders view as being supernatural.
That these ways are far more natural, far older
than the computerized religions and prefabricated
societal values of today’s world may escape many,
but that is the way of magic. It is not for everybody.
There are no vows to swear, no groups to join,
and no demons to worship. And, though there are a
few simple rules to follow that ensure best results,
the magic can be as simple or complex as you wish.
This is a book of power, of the magic of herbs.
The knowledge contained within it has been
preserved so that we may better our lives.
Use it with love.

About the Author
A native of the Pacific Northwest, author D. J. Conway has studied the occult
fields for more than thirty-five years. Her quest for knowledge has covered every
aspect of Paganism and Wicca to New Age and Eastern philosophies plus
history, the magical arts, philosophy, customs, mythologies, and folklore. In
1998 she was voted Best Wiccan and New Age author by The Silver Chalice, a Pagan magazine.

Conway is the author of more than twenty nonfiction books, including Celtic
Magic (Llewellyn), Dancing with Dragons (Llewellyn), Mystical Dragon Magic
(Llewellyn), The Ancient Art of Faery Magick (10 Speed Press), and The Little
Book of Candle Magic (10 Speed Press).

She lives a rather quiet life, with most of her time spent researching and writing.
D. J. Conway wrote extensive notes in her journal while studying and
performing folk magick with her grandmother. This book contains reproduced
pages from that journal, shown in Conway’s own handwriting, for you to enjoy.

About the Author
Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., has trained as a psychologist and medical
anthropologist, and has studied the healing practices of the Amazon and the
Andean shamans for more than 25 years. While an adjunct professor at San
Francisco State University, he founded the Biological Self-Regulation
Laboratory to study how the brain creates psychosomatic health and disease.
Convinced that the mind could create health, he left his laboratory and traveled
to the Amazon to work with the medicine men and women of the rain forest and
learn their healing methods and mythology.

Dr. Villoldo directs The Four Winds Society, where he trains individuals in
the U.S. and Europe in the practice of shamanic energy medicine. He is the
founder of the Light Body School, which has campuses in New York, California,
and Germany. He also directs the Center for Energy Medicine in Chile, where he
investigates and practices the neuroscience of enlightenment. Dr. Villoldo has
written numerous best-selling books, including Shaman, Healer, Sage; The Four
Insights; Courageous Dreaming; One Spirit Medicine; and Power Up Your Brain.

How to Use This Book
I’ve designed this book to guide you through the steps to grow the new body
that will take you through the rest of your life. This requires that you upgrade
your brain, so you can maintain a state of awareness I call Oneness. To get the
most out of the process, I recommend reading the chapters in the order in which
they’re presented and trying the dietary practices and exercises before moving
on in your reading.
Part I: Discovering Your Inner Healer introduces One Spirit Medicine; the
invisible world of radiant, living energy that informs the visible world of the
senses; and Spirit’s role as the harmonizing force in your health. You’ll be
introduced to the tyrannical mind-set that has dominated humanity since the
dawn of agriculture and understand how it drives us to war with ourselves and
with each other, undermining our health and well-being.
Part II: Shedding the Old Ways identifies the myriad environmental and
endogenous toxins (produced in the body) that we’re exposed to and explains
how to detoxify the body and the brain. You’ll learn about the “second brain” in
the digestive tract and how to upgrade the beneficial bacteria of your biome to
eliminate toxins before they enter your blood or brain. You’ll be introduced to
superfoods that promote brain and gut repair, discover the toxic effects of grains
and sugars, learn how our protein-rich diets are making you sick, and understand
how ketosis helps you burn healthy fats and produce neural stem cells to repair
and upgrade the brain.
In Part III: Overcoming the Death That Stalks You, you’ll learn to
transform dysfunctional emotional patterns founded on anger and fear, and how
brain nutrients can help to improve higher-brain function and help you manage
stress. You’ll be introduced to the mitochondria, the power centers of your cells.
Inherited from your mother, they represent the feminine life force. You’ll learn
how to reset the cells’ “death clocks” and switch on longevity proteins controlled
by mitochondria. You’ll find out what free radicals and inflammation do to the
body and how to reverse the damage. And you’ll discover shamanic techniques
that can upgrade your body and brain.
Part IV: From Stillness Comes Rebirth supports you in the process of
letting go of old, unhealthy ways of thinking so that you can experience healing
with One Spirit Medicine. You’ll learn how to shed outworn narratives about
your past and embrace a new, liberating personal story. You’ll overcome fear of
loss and change, and discover a new purpose for your life journey.
In Part V: The Grow a New Body Program, you’ll put what you’ve learned
into action. You’ll dedicate seven days to this plan and repeat it every three months.
You will learn to change what and when you eat in order to enter into ketosis
to activate the regions in the brain that will allow you to have an experience of
Oneness. You will also learn to work with neuronutrients available at your
health-food store that detoxify the body and brain and switch on the genes that
create health and longevity. Lastly, you will learn how to do a soul retrieval to
recover the vibrant and innocent parts of yourself that were lost because of
childhood trauma.
