Master of Ceremonies Richard Silverberg welcomed everyone to the regular Sunday meeting of the Pattaya City Expats Club on January 30, 2011 at Amari Resort’s Tavern by the Sea. After the usual opening announcements, he called on Bruce Gordon to introduce the guest speaker. Bruce, who previously spoke to the Club on the Laws of Attraction, then introduced Karen Jones, whose topic was Vibration and Energy Healing – The Art of Minding Your Health and Happiness.
Karen is a former International School Principal and has worked in education for over 25 years in the UK, Africa, Middle East and South Asia. She has become involved in meditation and has now branched out into vibration and energy healing.

Karen started by asking the audience to think about certain questions. One being does your life happen by chance? Another being, do you choose to be sick? A third being is your health something you can do something about? Karen said that you should believe in yourself and be all that you are. You need to know that you have something inside you that is greater than any obstacle. She said she lives in today and loves who she is.
Karen Jones, a former International School Principal who has worked in education for over 25 years in the UK, Africa, Middle East and South Asia, has become involved in meditation and has now branched out into vibration and energy healing.
Karen became very involved in vibration healing several years ago. She had been diagnosed with a cancerous breast tumor. She said she was apprehensive about the pending surgery and about 4 days before it was scheduled, with the aid of some friends, she began to concentrate on the illness willing it to be gone. On the day of the scheduled surgery, the doctor was baffled and amazed because the radiography showed the tumor had disappeared. Karen said she was thankful and felt she had been given a great gift.
She said that she wanted to introduce everyone to the acronym THWAK for Thanks, Honesty, Worry, Anger, and Kindness. One should be thankful for the things in life and be honest with oneself and others. They should let go of worry and anger and be kind, not only to others, but to themselves. Doing this will bring more well being and good feelings into your life and obstruct those thoughts and feelings that are harmful to the body.
She said that THWAK comes from the five Reiki precepts, which are: (1) we should wake up and think about the good things in our life and be thankful for them; (2) in being honest, we bring happiness into our lives; (3) we need to let go of worry as negative emotion is a pouring out of precious energy for something not happening at the moment; (4) we should do away with anger as it is another negative emotion that is the root cause of most diseases in our body; and (5) we should be kind to ourselves as well as others; do something you enjoy at least once a week.
‘Sig’, aka Harry Sigworth, aka Dr Quack, keeps us all abreast of the latest medical knowledge.
Karen then explained some of the aspects of Reiki for healing. The body and mind must work in harmony because the body is just a reflection of our minds. To heal the body, one needs to heal the brain. People can choose how they feel and think. Let go of worry, fear, guilt, anger, and self criticism. You should free your mind of all negative thought patterns.
Karen then asked the audience to participate in a little word association game. She found that most of the Club’s audience was thinking positive based on their responses.
Karen then showed a picture of herself that she said was taken with a special camera so that it showed the aura surrounding her. The picture was from an earlier time and she described how the colors reflected her vibrations with many not being good. She presented a later picture that showed a much better aura surrounding her, which happened because she was following the Reiki precepts.
She then concluded her presentation by describing the 7 chakra energy points in the body that give off vibrations. Further that these vibrations are magnetic energy fields that surround the body. She said that these chakras can become blocked and illness arises. She then described each and how they affect the body.
After Karen answered many questions from the audience, Richard Silverberg updated everyone on upcoming events and called on “Hawaii” Bob Sutterfield to conduct the always informative and sometimes humorous Open Forum, where questions about living in Thailand and Pattaya in particular are asked and answered.
