Mada Eliza Dalian
Mada Eliza Dalian is a self-realized mystic, internationally acclaimed master healer, spiritual teacher, best-selling award-winning author, and the founder of the evolutionary Dalian Method™.
Mada’s quest for truth began at the age of five when she witnessed her grandfather’s death and started asking herself: Who am I? Where do I come from? Where will I go when I die?
At the age of twenty-four, she left behind her training in education and architecture and devoted herself to the search for truth and spiritual enlightenment. After years of meditation and searching for truth, she was blessed with several profound experiences that ultimately lead to a powerful awakening at the age of thirty-three.
Mada is like a human X-ray machine who, with razor-sharp accuracy, is able to see through the layers of people’s unconscious, read the repressed belief patterns in their bodies that cause pain and suffering, and help transform what is unconscious in the person into consciousness.
In 2009, fifteen years after treating thousands of people with her method in a private practice with outstanding success, Mada devised the self-healing Dalian Method™ to help benefit even more people. As the originator and guardian of this advanced healing system, Mada fosters a revolution in how healing and transformation can be realized. She offers seminars, workshops, online courses, retreats, private sessions, and teacher trainings to people world-wide. www.MadaDalian.com

“A timely and profoundly helpful book for anyone who is ready to transform their life. Reading the book is a meditation and a practice unto itself.

“In his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell writes: ‘A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.’ Mada’s life journey took her on a long and rocky road of trials until she found the path that led her out of the dark forest – the path to consciousness. With this amazing book, which most of us can resonate with, Mada has ‘returned from her adventure’ to shine her bright light along our road of trials to help each one of us find our own path out of the dark forest.”
~ Peter D. Marshall, filmmaker

~ Diane Riley, nurse
“l stumbled upon Mada’s book at Chapters. I knew instinctively I had to read it! When I opened the book and began reading, I cried. Something inside me knew I was getting close to home and had found a long lost friend; another guide on my journey. Mada and this amazing book was my next step in anchoring me deeper into my true self. I did my first session with Mada less than a week later over the phone, as we both live on opposite coasts. I would have flown there to meet with her if I had to. Her insight into my blocks was monumental as was the technique she used to release these blocks. I have released a lifetime of patterns that no longer serve me. Her gentleness, humor and lightness instantly put me at ease. Mada is a powerful force for transformation. I highly recommend working with her or reading her book.”
~ Patricia H.

~ Amazon Customer Review
“Your book is a wonderful creation, which opens the world to the person and the person to the world.”
Andrey Risan, Kiev, Ukrain
“…I found Mada’s book like a precious mini-encyclopedia. Everyone ranging from a newbie to an advanced person on his/her journey to consciousness can find wealth of information and get some real insight. I always prefer books which give you practical exercises to overcome your personal problems. I think Mada had done a great job in this respect by providing various, easy-to-apply techniques. The knowledge provided throughout the book is VERY original as well as realistic since it does not resemble any other book falling under the same category. I really enjoy the format of the book; it is written in a way that it may relate to anyone who is on their search of their own truth. I wonder how she was able to explain such complicated, hard-to-grasp concepts in such a plain way! Also I think she is very talented artist in using her words. She speaks very plain yet very thorough/precise- it is really hard to miss anything, she clarifies her concepts so well. I like the Q&A section at the end of the chapters which really complements the important knowledge explained previously…I am quite sure it would be one of my reference books even in a decade’s time because as my consciousness would expand I would start to notice concepts and facts that I overlook beforehand or I would just gain deeper insights with each rereading! …Hope to see your book translated into Turkish too!”
~ Sibel Gunduz
“A must for everyone seriously interested in inviting spiritual transformation into their lives. A new star shines on the firmament of sincere spiritual advisors.”
~ Bodhi Heeren, Copenhagen, Denmark
“After listening to a podcast of an interview with the author I felt moved to order this book. I’ve worked as a clinical social worker and in publishing mainstream books…Dalian’s “against the grain” notions of how the ego needs to be strengthened in order, paradoxically, to be put aside and her advocacy of saying negative thoughts aloud before an out breath as opposed to repeating mantra-like positive affirmations that do not address unconscious thought forms in the body reflected a spiritual traveler who can think outside the box. The book is outstanding for it’s precision, depth, ease, density of information, and uniqueness of format. Dalian leaves her personal odyssey for the ending chapters which showed spiritual humility and works well for those who tend to interpret information in terms of the sender. I’m glad to own the book and will recommend it to others because I think it will age very well will resonate with many.”
~ Elise Dennis, New York
“Reading this book has transformed my life beyond words. This book is friendly and extremely practical, making the concept of enlightenment actually seem achievable. The book allows ease to set in a true seeker. I have subsequently met with the author and feel like a renewed human being. I genuinely feel I have moved forward “lifetimes” and am so grateful to have found this gem of a book which led me to Mada Thank you Mada dearest.”
~ Barnes and Noble Customer Review
“There are many profound insights, suggestions and signposts for every seeker of truth. It’s a refreshing and timeless book…Each time I read it I discover something new and deeper within myself.”
~ Barnes and Noble Customer Review
“First of all the work you are doing and your new book are an incredible gift to me so, thank you! After reading and re-reading many of today’s popular spiritual books even though I was very present while reading them and practiced the inner awareness all day, most days I could still sense an internal blockage, but until I read your book I was not aware of what it is. The way you illustrate the ego and how suppressed thoughts and feelings work in our bodies has likely kept me from chasing my tail for eternity. ”
~ SL, Vancouver, BC
“Thank you very much for your book in Russian language. I have found it in the supermarket. I was looking for some wear and products there. I was passing by the shelf with books and my eyes stopped on your book. I could not even expect that it will be so great and quick guidance to myself. It helps me at the same time to stay in my heart, see moving thoughts and emotions, to fill silence inside and perceive the existence as it is. Before reading your book I went the same way but slowly. Now it’s easier than before to have fun when I see the trouble and negative feelings. I knew that when I have problems and obstacles it teach me. But it was so difficult to pass them. Now I can enjoy it using guidance of my soul and existence. Every day is the travel and I know that existence loves me and prepare a lot of surprises. I’m glad to be here, to see people, to be in relationships, to breath and to be on the Earth!”
~ Olga Mukhacheva
Experiencing and knowing the being has been called enlightenment, self-realization, liberation, and union with God. I call it healing into consciousness… Like the phoenix that is reborn out of its own ashes, we are healed into consciousness through the fire of our destroyed ego-mind. Healing into consciousness includes both the search and the sudden moment of awakening to the truth that “I am what I have been searching for.”
HEALING: THE JOURNEY INTO CONSCIOUSNESS
Health is a state of consciousness. It has nothing to do with age, illness, or even the health of the body or mind. Whether we are aware of it or not, every step we take towards healing is a step towards consciousness. Everything we do in life is part of our healing journey towards the ultimate health of our true nature.
Only consciousness can heal our pain and suffering. Each moment contains an opportunity to awaken from the suffering of the ego-mind into the health of consciousness. Our bodies are full of suppressed thoughts, emotions, fears, desires, insecurities, and judgments. These create and sustain our ego-mind. In our unconsciousness, we keep our identification and attachment to our body, emotions, desires, and the world. Many unconscious thoughts and emotions are stored layer upon layer as patterns hardwired into our body’s cells. These patterns create energetic blocks in the body and cause physical and psychological pain and suffering. We heal into consciousness by peeling away these layers.
Only in our thoughts is there happiness and unhappiness, right and wrong, birth and death. When we stay identified with this ever-changing play of opposites that only exists in our mind, we fail to see what is permanent – the eternal presence of our being. As we get closer and closer to our being, we gradually move away from the duality of the mind and transform the ego into consciousness.
All our physical and psychological ailments point us to where we need to focus our attention so we can transform our energy into consciousness. Usually, we believe that our pain is a misfortune that needs to be fixed, but in fact, all pain (physical, mental, and emotional) is a necessary step towards becoming conscious. When we try to avoid pain, loneliness, and death, we also avoid finding our being.
In a very real way, all our pains are growing pains. When we are ready to heal from an unconscious belief or behavior pattern, we experience symptoms such as pain, anxiety, depression, and ill health. If we try to fix something on the outside instead of trying to find out the cause of our ailments from within, we continue to suffer. When we let go of our identification with who we think we are our body and DNA literally change.Healing into consciousness is the most arduous task that can ever be undertaken. There are many fears, obstacles, and ups and downs along the way. We need courage and trust to face the darkness of our unconscious. If we persevere and stay committed to our awakening, the journey will become easier and we will even begin to enjoy it and be excited by it. No matter how intense our pain and suffering, if we stay devoted to our healing journey, we will undoubtedly come face to face with the miraculous that abides within our own existence.
WHERE AM I? THE SEVEN STAGES OF THE HEALING JOURNEY
For those of you who are beginning your healing journey consciously, and for those of you who are already on your way, it might be helpful to think of your healing journey as a kind of “school of life,” a process similar to our educational system. The school of life can be divided into seven stages that correspond to Pre-school, Elementary, High School, UndergraduateUniversity, GraduateUniversity, PhD Student, and finally Professor. Unlike the school system, however, this process is not linear, and the stages are not distinct, but rather subtly blend into one another. The stage at which you start your healing journey depends on the level of self-awareness you bring from your previous lives and your understanding of the journey itself. As you progress through the school of life, your awareness of yourself and the world increases and your consciousness expands. Depending on your choices and level of consciousness, you may move through some stages faster than others …
WITNESSING: THE KEY TO HEALING INTO CONSCIOUSNESS
We can only heal into consciousness through witnessing. Witnessing is an alert watchfulness of whatever is happening moment to moment without mental or emotional engagement. In other words, it is the detached, unidentified, and non-judgmental observation of what is. When we experience that we are not our mind, body, and emotions we are in consciousness. The only way to understand this is to observe the body, mind, and emotions.
Through self-observation, we can see that all of our sensations, thoughts, and emotions are impermanent – they always change and move like passing clouds. Seeing their impermanence helps us understand that all our pain and suffering is created by the ego-mind.
All our problems exist because we are unable to witness and disidentify from our thoughts and emotions. When we don’t witness our mind and emotions, we remain caught in the story created by the ego-mind and continue to suffer. When we witness the mind and its story, we realize we are not the story but the observer of the story. When we simply observe our body and its sensations, thoughts, emotions, and everything that happens around us, we are out of the story.
We heal into consciousness with each moment of witnessing and disidentification, no matter how brief. Once we know we are nothing but consciousness, we are healed out of suffering. Our ability to witness is innate. The witness is part of our being. It is with us eternally, even after our bodies die. Even though the witness is always present watching everything coming and going, our awareness goes in and out of it. Witnessing is like a muscle that we need to strengthen through experience and practice. Meditation is the practice.

Review by Jeanette J. Jennis, The US Review of Books
“You heal into consciousness when you find the courage to fully embrace and face your ego and its desires.”
With an open mind and courageous intention, Dalian embarked on her fantastic spiritual journey in her early twenties. Her search led to studying many paths and teachers, although the works of two famous mystics, Gurdgieff and Osho, made the greatest impression. With uncommon devotion, she desired to find answers to life’s most perplexing questions, and along the way she discovered the miraculous and invites the reader to experience her extraordinary personal odyssey of healing into consciousness.
Key elements are profoundly explored chapter by chapter. Dalian provides a virtual spiritual roadmap that leads you into territory that may seem familiar, but takes on a different meaning when seen from her far-reaching perspective. She speaks with compassionate authority derived from years of observing the ego and its machinations; studying the seven chakras and applying their lessons; practicing unique visualization and breathing techniques; and discovering the immeasurable benefits of meditation. By personal examples, including past life memories, and wide-ranging guidelines throughout the book, Dalian shares her awakening experiences. “Enlightenment cannot be given or bought. Enlightenment is a gift that only comes through the grace of existence when you are ripe and ready to fully surrender your ego-mind and remember who you truly are.” Dalian knows the journey.
If you want to discover how to live as a fully conscious being in the world while simultaneously undertaking your spiritual journey, In Search of the Miraculous, a multi-award winner, contains the signposts to follow. “You are postponing enlightenment and waiting for the moment of your death to experience it. Why not enjoy it while you are still alive?”
