Healing of Light

C360_2016-01-16-02-57-28-651Sunlight and the Morning Sunshine is a Free Medicine where we can find in Nature. I remember Nanay bringing out Baby Luis and sit under the tree to receive the morning sunshine. This will help the child to develop strong muscles, bones as well as the lungs. It stimulates also the skin cells to bring natural color and make it firm. It also stimulates the kidney as well as the liver to flush out toxic waste naturally out of our system. Indeed that the Sun provides us Light and Heat energies that provides us life force within us. Through the power of the Sun derives the 2 modalities of Hilot which is Heat and Light. So the Manghihilot technology brings forth heat to the body through the Pagpapahid method and the light through talismans and charms that a manghihilot create as a Medicine.

kontra usogAside from Pilay Lamig, Hangin, Ipit and Bali, our Lolo and Lola knows that there is another powerful Pilay that could inflect the babies even adult that comes from another person and that is Usog. Usog literally means “to move” in tagalog, but this kind of illness in other province is the Philippines are called “bales”, “bati”, or “gaba”. This kind of Pilay is a form of Energy disturbance that blocks the flow of life force within an individual that makes the person sick. This is the reason why mothers go to Magtatawas to determine the cause of the child illness and obtain a cure. In order for the Usog be prevented. The Magtatawas prescribe a Medicine to counter Usog through a red and black bracelet or a red cloth infused with prayers to be pinned to the child.

In Hilot Academy, we do not just teach how to perform massage but also we share our knowledge in making our Medicine. The Medicine we use in Hilot are Herbs (halaman), Heat (init), Light (liwanag), Time/ Prayers (Orasyon) and Water. There are many ways how a Manghihilot can apply this medicine and from these a Manghihilot differs from one another. Even that they use different form of Healing, all of these Healing Modalities are manifestation of Hilot Medicine.

Last September 16 to 23, 2019 we had a French Couple who study with us to learn the Art and Science of Filipino Indigenous Healing. And from our sharing they don’t just learn our craft but they also become proficient in doing it.

Hilot Apprentice

Miracles happen when you believe. Hilot has been known as a folkloric medicine that is based on spirituality and mysticism but when you spend time discovering its ways you will see the arts and science behind it. Our ancestors who practice this as our First Medicine are unschooled individuals who has no Certificates, Diploma or Professional License to practice it but it works wonders on their patients.

Not all Manghihilot were born as Manghihilot. Some of them became a Patient first that been healed by a manghihilot from chronic illness and as part of thanksgiving to God they swear an oath to continue the practice of Hilot to preserve it. From observation and oral instruction they emulate how their manghihilot heal them and apply it to their family and later to their neighborhood. Some Manghihilot learn through the recollection of their memories on how their parents and grandparents personally apply our indigenous medicine to them when they are sick. And through practice they enhance their abilities to heal.

verma apprenticeshipThere are no formal schools of Hilot way back then. They learn Hilot through apprenticeship, observation and oral instructions given to them by their elders. There is no certificate, diploma or professional license given to them as a proof that they know how to perform hilot.  The only proof that you are manghihilot is that you perform and obtain favorable results in your action that is Healing.

It takes a lot of courage and confidence in order to be a Manghihilot. That is why sometimes it is considered also as a Faith Healing Modality because you need a lot of faith and trust in your ability that you can work wonder in healing your patient. Being a Manghihilot is not a Certified Professional but they are Ordained Minister in bringing back wellness into life. Since the main belief in Hilot is that Life is a sacred gift from the Divine, and our body is the house of the spirit so the work of manghihilot does not only focus on the Physical matter but also works on the soul and spiritual well being.

Teachers of Life

received_217528668820731.jpegColonization brought new form of medicine to our People, but as they bring new Medicine- the colonizer also bring new diseases into our land. When the colonizers settled into our Land they formed their own government over ruling the native people and had control of our land. As time pass by, they do not only own the land but also control people lives by implementing laws that will serve their interest up to present time.

There are also laws made concerning medicine and healthcare that forbid the use of our indigenous practices but instead use what is prescribed by the modern one. With the continues use of modern synthetic medicine, they also have the power to modify our DNA that will conform to their will. From our birth to our death, Modern Medicine has rule over us. They are the only one who is allowed to perform procedures on which our ancestors before us called as ritual in birthing as well as in funeral.

Before Anxiety and Depression is relieved by our Babaylan through rituals and meditation, now Modern Medicine prescribed drugs to tame it or lessen its effect unlike the Babaylan ways of changing it by teaching us how to control it. The focus of modern medicine is more mundane and carnal that it aims to control not only the cells of our body but also into the atomic level. But for us as Binabaylan Hilot we balance the Body and those level to the soul that gives life.

Recently my focus on study is about mental health. The problem of Drug Addiction, Juvenile Delinquency, Criminal mindset and so on… This i do probably as one of my Vow as dedicated Member of the Correllian Order of Peace Weaver. Though i don’t have the solution yet, but i already have found an answer why it happened to person.

The answer is due to the progress of the Soul within the person. In our studies we teach that each individual has 7 souls. As the time a child is born he or she receives his soul gradually. I also found that at the moment of Coitus, the union of Egg and Sperm Cell- the Spirit of Life begins to form. This union of cells become the Ancestral Soul of Life that made an Individual to be both Male and Female.

As individual we are both gender as Male and Female, because a Man could not germinate a baby without female nor a female can give birth without male. So the Power of Creation is present in the Union of this Power.

As the Baby come out of the womb, we know it is alive because of the First soul that comes with the Baby and we call it as ULIRAT. The Force or electricity of Life that was made from the union of the cells.

Then the next soul will come. We see this when the Baby is Placed to the breast of the Mother. On this stage, sensation is being developed to a child so as the intuition. This soul becomes the Child Muwang. The purity of the soul that has no Malice sucking divine milk from her mothers breast.

As the Baby grow s/he is introduced to the Community where the baby will receive his/her 3rd soul which is Malay. And this stage as i see is a very critical stage for the child where the child will be influenced by the people in his environment. What ever the Child see will become normal and correct that s/he will bring it up until adulthood. On this stage of Soul Progression, as an Adult we have a role on how we mold the child behavior towards live as the behavior is also a soul which we call as Bait/ katinuan.

This is the reason why religion comes in by having Child Baptism. The Church want to influence the development of the Child Kamalayan. and this continue in school as well as in social media and the Government. Now what ever the child adopt when s/he grows becomes the poison that we as Hilot Binabaylan must cure. And we can not do that by simply doing Massage or Tawas.

Everyone must level up to the Highest Calling as Hilot Binabaylan and that is to become a Teacher of Life.

One Herb with many cure

FB_IMG_1562853588606As we grow old we experience a lot of discomfort in our Body and due to this discomfort we often see our Doctor to be prescribed with different medicine for our condition. I remember my Nanay when she was still alive that she endures to take 12 or more medicine every day for her condition 3 times a day.  During that time she takes medicine for her brain, for her blood, for her heart, liver, kidney, bones, and probably towards her all entire body organ system. And every time she takes that medicine, she looks like she is suffering specially that for almost a week already that she does not poo while every day she takes in food and medicine. So what i did is that i Go to Mother Nature for an Alternative Cure that help her. And at that time i learned how to make herbal tablet from our Plant Medicine.

img201903032018061571567571.jpgAt first my mother joke me that it looks like a Goat’s poo and indeed it looked like one but it’s content is so much powerful because i blend it with not only one herbs but with all other herbs that is necessary towards Nanay’s condition. In her case i use Mulberry leaves, Malunggay, Serpentina, Ginger and Avocado. It help her up to her last day. She does not suffer in pain like before. She eats and poo regularly. She sleeps well and her blood pressure is down from 210/140 to 140/90 mmHg. Though her Doctor want her blood to still go down from 140/90 mmHg to 120/80 mmHg but when she takes blood pressure lowering drug, i was alarmed because she slept for about 24 hours. And from that time i use my medicine and lower the dosage of the Drug that the doctor prescribed for my mother.

Well in this article what i am going to share to you the Benefit of Herbs such as the Avocado leaves. In our Hilot Herbal Healing Class we have taught that using single herbs can cure many illness compared to synthetic drug that only cure one condition.

Hilot meets Chiropractor


June 6, 2016 my wife Kayoko gave me a wellness treat, she introduces me to her friend Dr. Nato who is a Chiropractor and Osteopath.

Kayoko goes first in having Dr. Nato’s treatment and the good Doctor allowed me to observe his treatment method.

At first he assessed Kayoko’s standing and walking posture and asked me if she is walking straight. I did’nt notice any problem with my wife not until Dr. Nato ask her to lie on the bed facing down.

Dr. Nato shows me the alignment of Kayoko’s leg to the sole of her feet i was surprised that her foot is not balanced, left foot is shorter than the right foot; then Dr. Nato ask me to flex my wifes leg and i found it tight that it could not flex to touch the heel to her butt; then Dr. Nato press some points near the knee that it seems he was just pressing a remote control button or a keypad of computer and show me that kayoko’s feet now is even.

And to my surprise, it is really now even; and again he press again to demonstrate and the foot is not even again and on the last time just to demonstrat, he fix kayoko’s leg and fit and by that time Kayoko is fine and well with even legs and feet.

After treating Kayoko, its now my turn for the treatment.

13239075_985263611569307_465087468032555284_nSince i have a problem with my right shoulder, Dr. Nato ask me to stand and place both my hands on my back to see the problem, after that he ask me to lie on my side and Mr.Kawamoto made adjustment to my shoulder.

He presses some points on my chest and scoop parts of my scapula and shake it. He does some lifting, rocking and shaking of my shoulders. Its not painful but after the treatment i am really amazed.

The experience with Dr. Nato and Mr. Kawamoto made me not to sleep because of amazement. With this experience i learn that even postural alignment is a disEASE and having balance is necessary in living our life to the fullest.

DisEASE is a limitation to our freedom to enjoy our life and in functioning well of our body and organs.

This experience wakes me up to take care of my body through physical exercise and diet.

Even as a Hilot, i need to be healed also.

And Dr. Nato and Mr. Kawamoto is also a Hilot in the Spirit which the practice of Chiropractor is also one of the lost modality of modern Hilot.

I am dreaming now to make Chiropractice be back to our Hilot Modality.
