Harmonization Process of Hilot in PITAHC with TESDA

For more than 2 years now, I am working with the Former Secretary of Tourism in the Person of Dr. Mina Gabor (which i consider this work as a Legacy Project on which many Manghihilot will benefit from our efforts.) and now we can actively participate in the policy making as i was chosen and appointed to become a member of Technical Working Group in conducting review to the TESDA Hilot Training Standards to align it with PITAHC Standards and Regulation on Hilot.

With these another flame has been set into a blaze where we as members of Luntiang Aghama and Hilot Academy of Binabaylan can showcase of Light and expertise on our Ancestral Healing Arts and Science.

Yesterday, we are so blessed to be given an opportunity to be present in the Inter Agency Meeting of the Philippine Institute of Traditional Alternative Health Care (PITAHC) with Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) which are both Government Owned Corporation from Department of Health (DoH) and the later from Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). The concerns of the meeting is with regards to the Certification of Hilot Practitioners in the Philippines which has become a source of confusion among the students on where to be certified.

It was 2008 when the training regulation of TESDA on Hilot Wellness Massage NC2 was formulated and through that Regulation, i was assessed, certified as practitioner and accredited as Trainer and Assessor in Hilot. But on 1997, the law establishing PITAHC was created mandating to promote Philippine Traditional Medicine which is Hilot. In promoting…

The Future of Manghihilot starts with us

Giving out certificates through our Training does not only means Money for us. Enrolling through our classes will serve as our Fuel to continue our effort in conducting research and developing techniques that will make the traditional to be adaptable in our modern times. Your enrollment to us will give us numbers that will become our stronghold that we can present to the Philippine Government that they may give value to our works in preserving this ancestral healing arts and science in the Philippines.

Connecting with these important people in Philippine Society, is our effort in bringing up the image of Hilot. Helping them to come out of the donation basis servitude and make their efforts be properly paid off. We are making an appeal that our manghihilot be properly employed and thinking of them be placed in Baranggay Health Center and make them also to have a basic monthly salary to be paid eiher by DSWD or DILG. We are making a plea also to consider creating Traditional Medicine Unit in all public hospitals in the Philippines so that our manghihilot can be employed there by rendering their service as Manghihilot.

I can see that our Manghihilot can also be partners with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources as well as Department of Agriculture. Our Manghihilot can be experts not only in Herbal Medicine but also in Fruits and Vegetables. Philippine Institute of Traditional Alternative Healthcare can benefit from our Manghihilot by giving them job as Field Researcher as well as product distributor from all the products manufactured as a result of the research. With these partnership, we can lower the price of medicine and improve the citizens health status by strengthening the preventive healthcare practices.

Do you remember the story that years ago before i become a Tesda Trainer and Assessor of Hilot Wellness Massage NC2, I was unemployed that time and very depressed that i think of my self as worthless. One night i go out and went for a walk on the night of the full moon, it was midnight and no one is around except for the sounds of kuliglig (cricket) and some barking of dogs. I went inside a grassland and lay down on the ground to cry and talk to the moon. The sky was clear and there are many stars together with the moon brightly shining upon me. With tears, I ask God what is my purpose in life, and in my mind there was a voice that ask me back that says: What do you know to do? and i answered: I only know how to do hilot…

We are Changing everyday!

It is the choice of an individual on what kind of life they should live. So it is not an excuse to reason out that you were born in a poor family that you are suffering from poor health and could not avail healthcare services in your community. But the life force within you allows you to move and take action on what kind of life you should live.

Hilot Academy of Binabaylan

Each new day it changes me. It’s either it gives me a new strength so as weakness of the body. But whatever that comes to me in each new day, I welcome it gratefully! What matters to me is that the Life Force is still united in my temporal Body. So with that I use it to work out with something great, so that when the life force expires, the thoughts the I leave will remain and will continue to inspires everyone. ( I hope that i does to you.)

Before Pandemic our mode learning is through Face-to-face interaction, and this was changed by the situation of pandemic that we offer now online training on selected skills. It’s been already 2 years now when we started our online training program called Non Contact Hilot : Mind and Spirit Work, that makes our students to become expert on the art of…

How much is the cost of Hilot in your Area?

There are so much Job opportunity as i see for our Hilot Practitioners. Not only in Spa. Let us leave the Spa to our Massage Therapist siblings. We can establish our own Hilot Healing Center where it can be a coordinating center with the Philippine Health department, social work and development, agriculture so as the Environment and Natural Resources. We are more than a Therapist, but we are also the Steward of Mother Earth.

The Philippines is probably has the cheapest Hilot services offered compared to other countries that i found where Hilot is being offered.

From YK Hilot Center in Tolyo, Japan

So 15,000 Japanese yen today is equivalent to Php 6, 119.16 in Philippine money and that is for 2 hours of Hilot Treatment.

I also saw a Treatment center that offers Hilot in Madrid, Spain and the name of the Center is Xiao Ying.

And the cost of their 60 minutes Hilot is 60.00€ which is equivalent to Philippine Peso as 3, 412.69 and their 2 hours session cost 110€ equivalent to Philippine peso as 6,256.60.

Another center that I found offering Hilot is located in Canada.

Their 60 minutes Hilot Massage cost already $120 in US Dollars while their 2 hours session will cost $230.00, if $120.00 converted into Philippine peso as of writing this, it will cost around Php…

VANGELO DELLE STREGHE – Creationism

According to the Vangelo delle Streghe;
“Diana was the first created of all creation. In Her were all things.”
In other words Diana, or Goddess, is PRIMEVAL DEITY. She existed before the first beginning, as CHAOS -God without form existing in a void, and having within Herself the seeds of all things, both spiritual and material, all mixed up together without order or definition. Primeval Deity is androgynous, having both feminine (spirit or yin) and masculine (matter or yang) elements, and is sometimes portrayed as such in myth and artwork.. Sometimes however Primeval Deity is portrayed as feminine, since we think of Primeval Deity in association with the Goddess, or Spirit -indeed as the Higher Self of Goddess. In this sense Primeval Deity is identified with the CRONE Goddess -the Goddess in Her aged state, having existed from before the dawn of time. This is the wisest and most knowing part of Goddess, most commonly called HEKATE. This is the Goddess portrayed with greater or lesser respect as the Hallowe’en witch, with Her pointed hat and broom.

For endless aeons Primeval Deity existed in this amorphous and undifferentiated state, in the darkness before the first creation. At first She slept, aware of nothing, resting and recharging, gathering Her energies and merely being -alone and complete in Herself.

But over the course of time, Primeval Deity began to stir; to become aware. First She became aware of Her own existence. In time She began to think, to dream, to question -to desire. She wondered; What would it be like to feel? What would it be like to move? To take action? To be able to receive sensation? To see? To taste? To hear?

And so for aeons Primeval Deity thought, and considered, and wondered. And then;
“Out of Herself, the first Darkness, She divided Herself. Into Darkness and Light She was divided. The God, Her brother and son, Herself and Her other Self, was the Light.”
Primeval Deity divided Herself -One became Two.

All of the physical, tangible, volatile parts of Primeval Deity went into the God, who was the Light. The God exploded into existence out of Primeval Deity in a shower of spark and flame which we remember as the Big Bang, the starting point of physical creation.

All of the spiritual, ethereal, eternal parts of Primeval Deity remained in the Goddess. In this sense Goddess is thought of as a continuation of Primeval Deity, since the consciousness of Primeval Deity is one of the Spiritual parts that remained with Her.

And the God spread out in all directions through the primordial void, a blaze of light and superheated matter. In time His fire would cool into stars, and from stars to Planets. As this happens the vibration of the matter slows, it becomes more dense, seemingly solid.

This slowing cooling, and solidifying, is described as “Falling into Matter.” Symbolically the God is described as having fallen into Seven Planes of existence. Some people say there are more, but then the divisions are not as exact as all that, so the number is not so important as the concept. Seven Planes is the ancient number, based on the idea of the seven Ptolemaic Planets (that is, the Sun, Moon, and those Planets visible with the naked eye). These Seven Planes are, from the lowest up; Physical, Emotional, Mental, Astral, Soular or Egoic, Monadic, and Divine. We will talk more about these later. The Seven Planes are also sometimes called the Seven Spheres, or the Seven Dimensions; all refer to the same basic concept.

The Vangelo continues;
“And when Diana saw that the light was so beautiful, the light which was Her other half, her brother the God, She yearned for it with exceeding great desire. Wishing to receive the light again into Her darkness, to swallow it up in rapture, in delight, She trembled with desire. And this trembling was the first dawn.

But the God’s light fled from Her and would not yield to Her wishes. He was the light which flies into the most distant parts of heaven, the mouse which flies before the cat.”
Seeing the beauty of the God -that is, of the physical Universe- the Goddess was entranced with desire, and wanted it back. She had dreamed of seeing and tasting and doing, but being separate from the God She could do none of this. She could only observe from outside that which She had created. The Goddess wanted the experiences She had dreamed of, and so She desired to take the created Universe back into Herself… But it wasn’t that easy.

The Vangelo tells how The Goddess went to the oldest part of Herself, Primeval Deity -Who was still within Her. The Vangelo calls Primeval Deity “The Mothers and Fathers who were before the first creation” emphasizing Primeval Deity’s androgynous aspect.

In other words, the Goddess consulted Her own Higher Self. In many ancient myths -notably the story of Demeter and Persephone- this same process is shown as the Goddess entering Hekate’s cave to take council of the eldest and wisest part of Deity.

In the Vangelo Diana asks Primeval Deity how She could reunite with the God -how could Spirit take Matter back into Itself? And the Ancient One, Primeval Deity, the Goddess’ own Higher Self, answered in this way;
“To rise You must fall. To become the greatest of all Goddesses, You must first become a mortal.”
In other words, it was not possible for Spirit simply to take Matter back into Herself. If the Goddess wished to reunite with the God, to be one with Matter and experience it, She had to enter into the physical world. Only in that way could Goddess and God reunite.

And so Diana “fell” -that is to say She descended through the Seven Planes to the Physical. She did this by dividing off parts of Herself -the many souls- which she sent into the Physical, placing them into physical forms. Each soul was to lead many lifetimes, going through many physical forms in the process. Reading this now, you are one of the lifetimes of one of those souls, which are part of the great Goddess. We are Her children, and also children of the God, for our existence is the accomplishment of their union.

The Vangelo describes this process in extremely symbolic terms. It tells how Diana took the form of a cat (the soul entering into material form) and in this way got close to the God, then resuming Her own form, made passionate love to Him.

Then, to maintain the Union of Spirit and Matter, the Goddess cast a spell;
“She sang a charm, and her voice was as the buzzing of bees. And then Diana sat at Her spinning wheel and began to spin the thread of life, and the God turned the wheel.”
In other words, having placed soul into matter, the Goddess used the power of “sound” -that is, VIBRATION- to set the Universe as we know it into motion. Energy is what holds all things together, from sub-atomic particles to the very galaxies of stars. The Vibration of that energy, it’s movement -sometimes described as “Frequency” – is what makes it work, and determines on what level it works. The denser or more physical a thing is the lower it’s Vibration or frequency is said to be. The more Spiritual the energy, the higher it’s Vibration is said to be. Vibration is comparable to sound, which can be a powerful magical tool. For this reason the Vibration of the Universe, at differing frequencies through each of the Seven Planes or spheres, is often described as the MUSIC OF THE SPHERES.

Music and song have long been used in many spiritual traditions as a means of affecting the Vibration of energy. Sound can be used in this way to disperse negative or unfocused energy, to break down psychic blockages, and to create or effect specific energetic forms. Sound is a very powerful tool precisely because sound, or Vibration is the very force the Goddess used to set the Wheel of Life into motion.

Called the Goddess’ spinning wheel in the Vangelo delle Streghe, the Wheel of Life is a very ancient concept. It is represented annually by the sacred Wheel of the Year (which you will learn about in LESSON 3). From this Wheel the Goddess (Spirit) spins the thread of life -i.e.; determines it’s nature, qualities, the lessons to be learned and the things to be done and accomplished. The DESTINY, if you would. But the God (Matter, or perhaps more precisely physical experience) turns the wheel. As Goddess is the nature of life, the God is the process of living -the movement through the Planes of Existence. The Goddess is the essential nature of the Universe and life itself, She provides the Divine Spark which animates all things. But the God carries that spark forward. The God is Lord of Space and Time -master of the temporal universe. In this aspect He is called the Lord of the Dance, for He leads the dance of life, facilitating experience and growth.

In this way -their essence originating from the Goddess, their ability to move and to grow originating from the God, the many souls descended to the physical Plane. The goal of this, as stated above, was to experience; to learn and grow. Having arrived in the physical the souls set out to learn all that the physical Plane could teach them, and then began their ascent back up through the Seven Planes to ultimately rejoin with Goddess, from whence they come. Each Plane has it’s own special lessons, which are of great importance to the soul.

Though seemingly separated from the Goddess, each of these souls remains always attached to Her, always part of Her -for it is through them, as part of them, that Goddess entered into Her own physical creation, the God. We are one with the Goddess, and our experiences are Her experience. We are eternal and immortal as souls, never cut off from Goddess, or Spirit, only differentiated. All of the powers and abilities of Goddess are within us, and at our command, if we can clear our vision enough to see and access them.

The Book of Genesis nor the theory of Evolution are not the only sole resources that could explain the existence of Man. In my vlog at Luntiang Aghama, we have explained that before our country has been named as the Philippines, this archipelago in the Far East is composed of many Tribal Nations which we identify through their Ethnic Languages. Aside from their language, we will also recognize their culture, lifestyle and Spiritual Beliefs and practices. From that, we will also learn from their myths and folk stories how things started so as the creation of Man.

Vangelo Delle Streghe was an allegory written by an American Folklorist named Charles Godfrey Leland, which according my understanding is a collection of Legends fore told by the Aradian Witches of Italy.

In this story comparing to the Creation of Man, in the Book of Genesis, God made man with a clay which…

At the start of this week, an old woman came to us asking us to help her treat her husband. I am tempted to reject her request as I my self have a condition which is I am still recovering from stroke. Supposedly mid June till the coming of July, I experience constant dizziness that I am not confident enough if I could handle a client/patient. But the calling to do Hilot is much greater than my stroke. The Ancestors have reminded me why I was allowed to suffer my condition, but I also pray, what if i used all my strength in extending the life of others, will there be life that will left to me? But the Spirit just tell me to go.

So me and lakay went with the woman riding in the tricycle and bring us to their house. As we arrived, this is what we…
