A Spiritual Response To Negativity

QUESTION: I have been a spiritual reader for many years. Sometimes I run into a problem with tingling in my feet and low energy, especially when I am around people, like my body is absorbing their negative energy. It leaves me tired and drained to a point of not being able to read. I was wondering if you ever heard of this? I have been searching for the solution for four years now. I went to doctors, but was told that everything medical is okay.

ANSWER: According to my tradition, people do not drain you of energy, but your body may tense up around them and this may cause symptoms like you describe, plus dehydration and it's effects. You may want to try a technique called "Lovelight" when you are around people. It is similar to the "White Light of Protection," except that it is used for harmony instead of protection, and that is much more effective. Just imagine yourself surrounded by a light of any color you choose, and mentally tell that light to harmonize the energies around you. In addition to that you may want to try drinking more water when you are around people in order to help neutralize the tension effects.

QUESTION: Where does Huna come from?

ANSWER: Huna is a Hawaiian word whose basic meaning is "something hard to see," and it is commonly used by Hawaiians to refer to esoteric knowledge, as in the phrase, "no'eau huna," meaning "hidden wisdom." It's application as a term for a whole system of esoteric knowledge and practice is modern. The first person to use it this way was Max Freedom Long. I have used it (with amused tolerance from my Hawaiian uncle) to describe the Kahili family tradition. In this tradition it is a set of observations about the nature of reality. In its present form of seven ideas or principles it was supposed to have come originally from the Pleaides and was incorporated into Hawaiian culture, although not all Hawaiians accept all seven ideas.

These same ideas can be found scattered around the world as part of different philosophies and cultures, because other people have made similar observations, but the only places I have found all seven ideas together are in the Gospels and in the Book of Proverbs.
