Chinese calligraphy has been around for centuries as a form of artistic expression, but can it be used further to heal people? Mayur Shah, Certified Master Teacher & Healer of the Tao Academy, discusses his health journey with Tao Calligraphy and how it's improved his life.
One day I started passing blood in my urine.
It was extremely painful too. I made an appointment to see my doctor and I decided to take a photo of the blood in the toilet basin. I noticed that there was some grit at the bottom. The doctor told me it could be an infection, a kidney stone coming out, or worse, cancer.
I was sent for a camera inspection of my urinary bladder and CT Scan of my kidneys. Luckily both of those came negative and the Dr confirmed that my kidney stone had come out.
But this wasn't just by chance. One of the calligraphies that I was tracing as part of my weekly sessions was for Kidneys. And lo and behold, that week the calligraphy released my imbalance of the kidney stones. So, every week, my whole body is getting this unique and profound cleansing, healing and rejuvenation.
So what is Tao Calligraphy?
Tao Calligraphy is a unique form of Chinese calligraphy developed in 2013 by Zhi Gang Sha, MD (China) and professor at the State Ethnic Academy of Painting in Beijing. It is a unique style of calligraphy that combines the flowing artistic beauty of Yi Bi Zi (a calligraphy style wherein entire characters and even phrases are written with one continuous stroke).
In addition, the calligraphies act as a bridge to receive frequencies of love, forgiveness, compassion and light from Tao. These then act on any imbalances within the body on physical and emotional challenges and wash away the imbalances to bring alignment of soul, heart, mind, energy and matter.
Mayur has found more ways that Tao Calligraphy has helped him
Since doing Tao Calligraphy I have noticed a dramatic change in my eyesight. My eyesight improved so much that my vision through my current glasses became blurry!
I had to go to the opticians and get a new pair of glasses.
The science behind it
In 2017, a scientific study took place which found that calligraphy significantly reduced heart rate, respiratory rate, systolic blood pressure, as well as self-reported state-trait anxiety levels, depression and stress levels in breast cancer patients who received an eight-90 minute Chinese calligraphy intervention.
Two hypotheses were supported by the results of the research: 1) There was a physiological slowing effect in blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate among breast cancer patients after the intervention; 2) Breast cancer patients had reduced scores on self-reported measures on anxiety and comorbid depression levels after the intervention.
