(Matthew 25:40) The Twelve Basic Human Rights These basic human rights are yours as a Divine Spark of God. They are yours regardless of whatever culture, religion, government, or other social group that you have incarnated into. If those groups cannot support your basic human rights, then they should be resisted. As the tried and true Quaker Proverb goes, "Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God". Resistance means not participating in your own abuse by submitting to the tyranny. The most fundamental right of all is that no one has the right to do you harm. This is a right you must cherish and defend. Your freedom begins because you are Soul and God loves you. Your freedom ends when you harm another because in doing so you agree karmically to "reap" what you have "sown". 1> YOUR BODY IS HOLY GROUND Your body is the temple of your spirit and as such is holy ground. Given that your body is holy, no one has the right to violate it. Violations include
harming it in any way. Active harm includes such "crimes against the body" as beatings, stabbings, strangulation, poisoning, violent interrogation, and other acts carrying criminal penalties. It also includes "invasive procedures" and/or "cutting edge cures" which claim to cure the body by harming it (different from the temporary inconvenience, permanent gain involved in healing). Passive harm includes acts resulting in depriving a body of sleep, food, drink, love, air, protection from nature, etc. You should completely resist anyone who harms your body actively or passively. 2> YOUR MIND IS HOLY GROUND Your mind is the guardian of your spirit and as such is holy ground. Given that your mind is holy, no one has the right to violate it. Violations include harming it in any way. Active harm includes feeding it mind altering drugs, forcibly reprogramming it, exposing it to unwanted subliminals, using domination type interrogation techniques, and other acts carrying criminal penalties. Passive harm includes subtle manipulation used to detach someone from core beliefs, thoughts, and attitudes, constantly subjecting them to barrages of negative statements, convincing them that they are worthless or anything less than a Divine Spark of God. You should completely resist anyone who harms your mind actively or passively. 3> YOUR EMOTIONS ARE SACRED Your emotions are sent from your Higher Self to propel you along your life's path and as such are sacred. Emotions should always be honored but not always acted upon. Emotions act like pain in your body and suspicion in your mind as a signal for you to take action that is in your own best interests. When another suggests, asks, insists, or forces you to act against your emotions, they are invading your sacred space. You have an inalienable right to your emotions and to feel the way that you do. Often if you just listen to your heart and what it feels, you will be led to the right path. You should completely resist anyone who tries to get you to deny, repress, minimize, convert, project, or dissociate from your emotions. 4> YOUR SPIRIT IS SACRED Your spirit is the most sacred and holy part of you. Bodies can be killed. Minds can be shattered. Emotions can lead to the path of tangled karma. Yet in your Soul, you are always free, always safe, always loved. It is your Divine Core Essence: it is eternal and indestructible. As you unfold into greater awareness of your Soul, you will explore many paths of religion, philosophy, and spirituality. Each of these paths will enrich your total life experience and so you should be left to explore them in peace at your own pace. You should not allow anyone to convince or convert you to their way of thinking, believing, and being. What you think, believe, and have chosen is perfect for you right now… honor that and keep your Soul sacred.
5> YOUR BASIC RIGHT: YOUR LIFE Once you are born into this Earth plane, you have a right to be here for as long as your body-mind can sustain your life. This is true provided that you do not deprive another of their rights while you are here. An integral part of the dynamic of abuse and torture is a belief on the part of a torturer that you do not have the your God given right to the life. This belief comes from the mistaken idea that the tortured are somehow inferior to the torturer. And so because the tortured are "children of a lesser God" they do not deserve to enjoy the same right to life as their "superiors". Take the case of the Nazi Holocaust. The beliefs which "justified" the wholesale slaughter of Jews, gypsies, and others not "racially pure" were these. That they were from a "lesser race" or were "not quite human" or were "much less evolved" than their persecutors. The Nazi propaganda machine was quite effective in convincing a nation that they were participating in a "noble cause to rid the world of the plague of Zionists" transforming normal, ordinary people into "Hitler's willing executioners". The truth is that God is the only one who gives life… and those He gives it to have a Divine Right to preserve it at all costs. 6> YOUR BASIC RIGHT: YOUR LIBERTY Those who live in "unfree" areas of the world can attest that freedom is an essential component of happiness. In "free" societies, an individual's liberty is only restricted by their inability to interfere with the rights of others. In "unfree" societies, the individual spends a majority of their time laboring against restrictions that are imposed by the society, religion, or culture they have incarnated into. Take the case of the American South. Not long ago, African Americans were killed for exercising their right to vote or died because they could not be admitted into the "right" hospitals or were beaten for sitting in the "wrong" part of a bus or drinking from the "wrong" water fountain. More insidious were the daily restrictions on individual freedom that came from constant barrages of insults, criticism, and abuse. It is those small wounds that fester in the mind and wear down body and spirit a little more each day. The freedom to live your life as you chose is one of the most precious gifts you can receive: cherish and defend it no matter what. 7> YOUR BASIC RIGHT: YOUR HAPPINESS What lies at the end of the trail of karma is happiness. For karma leads one to their true freedom of living in a continual state of joy, love, and awareness (the primary attributes of God). Historically speaking, the "pursuit of happiness" is a new goal. For most of human history, existence on Earth has been a grim and desperate struggle for survival… and in many areas on Earth, this - unfortunately - is still true.
When he wrote the "Declaration of Independence", some laughed at Thomas Jefferson for including the "pursuit of happiness" along with the "more important goals" of securing life and liberty. And yet, today, the pursuit of happiness has created more wealth and commerce than those only devoted to the preservation of life and liberty. It has also opened up the mass consciousness to greater levels of receiving and giving love. In turn, this has helped many rapidly accelerate their karmic learning. There is as much challenge in joy as in sorrow. Allow your life to flow in bliss and abundance by letting go of those interfering with your joy! 8> YOUR BASIC RIGHT: YOUR EQUALITY All Souls are created equally and are equally loved by God. God does not value Mother Theresa more and Adolf Hitler less. Both are Divine creations and as such are equal in God's eyes. It is a truly loving God who creates a universe vast enough to give everyone infinite chances to spin through cycles of karma and reincarnation experiencing life from every viewpoint until they become love, joy, and awareness. It is only the torturer who sees inequality. For it is their belief in inequality which allows them to view others of God's creation as undeserving of the same rights they enjoy. Take the case of American slavery. Slaves were considered property of their masters who were free to abuse them to death. This freedom came from human laws which empowered masters to abuse slaves. Karma works to reverse the fortunes of master and slave until those participating in the dynamic of slavery are brought to value the sacredness of all life equally. Anyone who tells you that you are "not equal" to another of God's creatures should be resisted. 9> YOUR BASIC RIGHT: YOUR CONNECTEDNESS Our journey through the cycles of reincarnation is propelled by our need to take responsibility for our actions (personal karma) and our duty to all life (group karma). Since we are individual sparks of God, we each must learn in our own way (better known as individuation). Yet since we are all part of the "one song" of the uni-verse, we learn from our connection to others (better known as divination in sense that we are all CoWorkers with God). We are like stalactites in a cave. We are all joined together at the roof of the cave (our divination) but we hang down from the roof all in unique formations like the stalactites (our individuals). When forces outside ourselves (government, society, culture) tries to deny this connection, they do so because their purpose is to gain complete control over us. Take the case of the Russian and Chinese cultural revolutions. The practice of religion was forcibly stripped from the long oppressed peoples of those countries as their governments sought total domination of body, mind, and spirit. "Worship the government or die" was the choice. So to live, many did so, feeling "they stole our souls". Let no one steal your Soul for only in your Soul are you free.
10> YOUR BASIC RIGHT: YOUR WORTHINESS Saint and sinner are value judgments placed on the "worthiness" of an individual life by humans and their institutions. As such, these value judgments have no bearing on the unfoldment of these individuals' karma. Saints have no more a free ticket to eternal bliss than sinners do to endless damnation. The philosopher Epictetus said it best: "After a theatrical performance nobody says: this actor played the king, what a good actor, this one played the beggar so I don't applaud him." After your death the Gods (Lords of Karma) will say: "you played your part well or badly". Then all they will say is "do better next time". For they know that God does not create junk… only masterpieces. In God's eyes, the bank president and the minister are as equally worthy of His Love as are the terrorist and the crack whore. You are worthy because God made you so, if you do not feel worthy, it is because others have made you feel that way. Anyone who tries to convince you that you are "not worthy" in yourself or of anything you desire should be resisted. 11> YOUR BASIC RIGHT: YOUR BELIEFS It is a maxim of psychology that every belief that you have comes from somewhere in your experience. And, at one time, every thought, belief, attitude, and behavior you have made perfect sense to you… even if they do not make perfect sense to you now. Only in the context of past lives can the truth of this maxim be seen. For example, those compelled to hoard money in their life today invariably had a traumatic death in the trail of their past lives caused by lack of money. Or those who just cannot take off the weight are usually carrying traumatic memories from past lives where they starved to death. Or those who just cannot put on weight many times had past lives where it was considered holy to starve the body into being ultra thin. No matter what trouble those beliefs are causing in your life now, you are clinging to them unconsciously because they have somehow served you in the past. Only you can decide what beliefs do not serve you - otherwise those seeking to detach you from your beliefs are your torturers. 12> YOUR BASIC RIGHT: YOUR EXPERIENCES The Earth is a big schoolhouse where we come to learn and grow in love, joy, and awareness. When our learning does not go the way we expect, we count it as a mistake. Yet, "making mistakes" is value judgment that we place on the process of unfolding into Soul awareness. As we "correct mistakes", we learn ways of thinking, doing, and being that are more in harmony with how the universe works. Experience becomes our greatest, truest, and best teacher about the laws of life. For experience "shows" us how things work in ways that books cannot tell us, that others cannot explain to us, and that we cannot "figure
out" in the silence of our minds. That is why Native Americans say "do not judge another person until you have walked a mile in their moccasins". That is why it is impossible for you to "tell" your children anything and why you have to stand back and let them discover life through experiences for themselves. That is what God does for all of us: allowing another to have their own experience is the greatest gift of all.

Rules #42: Self Love: "The Greatest Love of All"
"To put the world in order, we must put the nation in order. To put the nation in order, we must put the family in order. To put the family in order, we must nurture our personal life. To cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts and minds right… Plant a thought, reap an act. Plant an act, reap a habit. Plant a habit, reap a character. Plant a character, reap a destiny." (Confucius)
The Eternal Question "What is it that makes you worthy to be loved?" was the question posed by a facilitator at one workshop that changed my life. One by one, he asked each of the participants this question in turn. They answered that to be worthy of love one had either TO DO or TO BE something. Of course, these were all wrong answers. Impatiently, the group asked what the right answer was and it was this. "You are worthy to be loved because God loves you and because you believe that you are worthy". The Earth would be the paradise that God intended if everyone did love themselves. In fact, all the problems in the world can be reduced to one: lack of self love. The True Root of All Evil: Lack of Love for Yourself Louise Hay said it best: "When someone comes to me with a problem, I don't care what it is: poor health, lack of money, unfulfilling relationships,
or self esteem issues... there is only one thing that I ever work on, and that is LOVING THE SELF. I find that when we really love, accept and approve of ourselves exactly as we are, then everything in life works." And so it does... So how does one begin to love themselves?… by doing the following: 1> SELF LOVE IS DEFENDING YOUR WORTHINESS
"This above all: be true, be true, be true." (Nathaniel Hawthorne)
Being true to yourself is remembering one thing: you exist because God loves you… and with that love all things are possible. Before you read another word, raise of a shield of pure and unconditional love all around you: body, mind, emotions, and spirit. That's better… Filling yourself with love is the first step is driving out the poison of hate that constantly assaults us all. For society tells us the infinite things that are wrong with us: we are too fat, too dumb, too emotional, too old, too whatever and that is why we have to get this, do that, or change who we are. This is not to mention family, friends, coworkers, and others in our life who are telling us what to do all the time. Of course, there is one enemy who is particularly relentless towards us: ourselves. We are our own worst enemy when we think, act, and treat ourselves as anything other than Divine Beings. When we think "I have should have done that" or "I could have done this" or "I would have done better if I do not do that" or "If only I had" we are criticizing ourselves. This constant internal criticism does "not make us do better", it only makes us more fearful that "I am going to screw it up next time." The next time you say "I should have", "I could have", "I would have"... STOP beating yourself up! Say to yourself (aloud if you can) "CANCEL!" Then tell yourself, "I did the best I knew how, I learned from it, next time I will… [do better, learn from it, act differently, etc] and this will get me what I desire to manifest in my life!" Defend your right to be yourself from all the people who are telling you "you are wrong", including yourself. End self criticism now before it kills you!! 2> SELF LOVE IS NURTURING YOUR BODY
"The body is the temple of the spirit." (Bible: 1 Corinthians 6:19)
The primary means for showing love to yourself is nurturing the body that God gave you. Like it or not, your body is your vehicle for navigating your way through life. For optimum performance and vitality, you should give it regular maintenance. This means doing things like: constantly sustaining it with vital life force by breathing properly, by drinking plenty of water, by feeding it good food, by getting enough rest and exercise, by clothing and sheltering it properly, and by nurturing it with loving touch. It means
taking active steps to protect it from harm. It also means acknowledging it when it has "gone the extra mile" so that you could do whatever it was you wanted to do. Treat your body like a beloved pet by patting it, saying "I love you", and giving it special treats… you will be amazed by the results!! 3> SELF LOVE IS CULTIVATING YOUR MIND
"Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently." (Henry Ford)
You have made mistakes… we all have. Louise Hay said it best: "Self hatred is really only hating your own thoughts. Don't hate yourself for having the thoughts. Gently change your thoughts. Acknowledge that you created them to fulfill a need. Now you are finding new, positive ways to fulfill those needs. So lovingly release the old negative patterns." If you are not cultivating your mind to manifest your joyful desires then it will create your life based on your worries. Choose love over fear and your life will improve. This means doing basic things like: living life holistically, managing stress, and using nature's way (aromas, oils, and herbals) to help your mind retain/regain the composure needed to make good decisions. 4> SELF LOVE IS LISTENING TO YOUR EMOTIONS
"Each of us makes our own weather in the emotional universe we inhabit." (Fulton J. Sheen)
The word "emotion" means "energy in motion" as sent from your Higher Self to propel you along your path in life. Emotions are also sent by your ego ("lower self") to keep you safe and protected. Life often becomes a conflict between these two conflicting sources of emotion: the positive/loving (Higher Self) that prompts you to go for your future dreams and the negative/fearful (ego) which begs you to stay with your current reality. Stop living on the choppy seas of your emotions and sail your boat into calm waters. You do not have to be a slave to your lusts, a captive to your anger, a pawn of your greed, a victim of your vanity, or a prisoner of your attachments. Just listen to emotions and then decide what to do about them. 5> SELF LOVE IS HONORING YOUR SPIRIT
"In my Soul, I am free." (Paul Twitchell)
As essential component of honoring your spirit is coming into agreement to see yourself for who you really are, to listen to that truth, and to live it in your daily life. For you are a not a human being come to Earth to have a spiritual experience, you are spiritual being having a human experience. You are not physical matter you are a complex energy field which binds you together past, present, and future. You are not your five senses - sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell - but you can become caught in their traps, as in unhealthy addictions and misuse of sex. You are Soul: doing your best in your journey through the worlds of karma and reincarnation..
6> SELF LOVE IS ACCEPTING YOURSELF/OTHERS AS IS
"Until I accept my faults I will most certainly doubt my virtues." (Hugh Prather)
No one is perfect, not me and not you. No matter what you want to change about yourself, it is of vital importance that you value yourself - just as you are right now. Self acceptance is not getting back what you thought that you had yesterday or achieving what you think you are wishing for tomorrow, it means loving the self right now today. We are all a "work in progress": changing every day and evolving into becoming who we already are. As Louise Hay advises us: "Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be patient with yourself as you learn the new ways of thinking. Treat yourself as you would someone you really loved." Amen! 7> SELF LOVE IS SHOWING YOURSELF/OTHERS KINDNESS
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." (Philo)
Many people lead lives of "quiet desperation": drowning in negativity, consumed by worry, and waiting for disaster to strike. They do so not realizing that negativity breeds problems, worry causes undesired results, and disaster is experienced less often than it is imagined. Whenever you feel this way, you are unable to treat others or yourself with kindness. That is the time to STOP! and make a conscious effort to be kind to yourself and others. Do this by replacing negativity with a positive outlook, worry with confidence that "all is well", and anticipation of disaster with faith in the future. You CAN do this because you are the creator of your own universe. Regardless of what happens in the outside world, fill your inside world with peace, love, and joy. Affirm: "All is well in my universe, I am safe and protected at all times. Out of every situation, only good will come to me". 8> SELF LOVE IS SHOWING YOURSELF/OTHERS COMPASSION
"The more a person loves, the closer he approaches the image of God." (Martin Luther)
Although it may be hard to believe, the truth is that everyone does the best they can with what they have. For everyone, including you, is just living out what they have learned in this or previous lives. Compassion comes when you realize that those who hate and hurt others are just lashing out against times when they were hated and hurt themselves. For it is then that you can see that "it is the pain talking" and not the person. Given that you can understand that there are no truly bad people - only people who say and do bad things - you can be compassionate towards every person in every situation. Pouring the oil of compassion, tolerance, & understanding on the troubled waters of daily life is the very essence of unconditional self love. 9> SELF LOVE IS SHOWING YOURSELF/OTHERS RESPECT
"Accepting responsibility for life is the source from which self respect springs." (Joan Didion)
Everyone is a spark of the Divine and brings a unique note to the universal song we are all singing (notice that the word uni-verse means "one song").
This means that everyone has something valuable to contribute: in the words of Thomas Carlyle: "everyone is my superior in that I may learn from them". Unfortunately, the world is all too ready to teach us that others should be discounted because they differ from us in some way (gender, race, nationality, religion, etc) when we are all the same and equal as Soul. That is why the word "Namaste" is such a powerful greeting because it conveys respect in a very pure way. For when we respect ourselves and others, we are acting from one of the deepest places of unconditional love. 10> SELF LOVE IS ACTING TO FREE YOURSELF/OTHERS
"Don't go through life, grow through life." (Eric Butterworth)
It is always wise to remember that "all conditions are temporary". The world was here before you came and will go on after you are gone. The position you hold to today relative to others in your life now may be reversed tomorrow or in a future life. The world exists to be a stage for karma and each one must play their role as they see fit. Those who try to lift the world upon their shoulders to "make it better" for loved ones will usually find themselves quickly buried under it's weight. You get "out from under" when you realize that the only person you can change is yourself. Allowing others to have their lessons helps them learn the only way they can - by experience - and it frees you. Love yourself by laying down the world right now. 11> SELF LOVE IS SHOWING YOURSELF/OTHERS FORGIVENESS
"He that cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he must pass." (George Herbert)
In Louise Hay's words, "Let the past go. You did the best you could at the time with the understanding, awareness and knowledge that you had. Now you are growing and changing and you will live differently." Forgiveness does not mean condoning what happened or just forgetting about it or not learning from it. All of those are valuable lessons that you spent emotion learning. What forgiveness means is releasing the anger and other emotions that keep you stuck in unforgiveness of yourself or others. Holding onto these toxic feelings will have no effect on the other person and will not alter what you did or did not do. Holding onto unforgiveness is deadly poison to your body, mind, and spirit: love yourself enough to let it go. 12> SELF LOVE IS ALLOWING YOURSELF TO BE HAPPY
"The time to relax is when you don't have time for it." (Sydney J. Harris)
Happiness is to be found in only one place: inside your own heart right at this moment. So many people lose so much by waiting until I "get healthier, find my dream partner, get a new job, get a new house, or lose the weight, and so on". And when they get those things then they wait for better ones until they learn the hard lesson that "happiness deferred is happiness denied". So get happy: start now by doing more of the things that make you happy on a daily basis. Look for joy everywhere. Laugh or
do a good deed just for fun! Love yourself enough daily to "smile, 'cause when your smilin', the whole world smiles with you!" Credits: adapted from Louise Hay's "How to Love Yourself Worksheet", information

Rules #43: Learning to Love Others: "For Love & Love Alone"
"To others we are not ourselves but a performer in their lives cast for a part we do not even know that we are playing." Elizabeth Bibesco (Haven)
The Role of a Lifetime Whether we realize it or not, the role that we play in the lives of others - those we know and those who know of us - is that of karmic instructor. It is the same role that others we know play in our lives. Each of us is constantly teaching all others around us - by our words and actions - about different ways of being. From these examples, each decides what to do and how to be as we make our own journey through the universe. Love One Another as God Loves You So as Thomas Carlyle said "everyone is my superior in that I may learn from them." Often others teaching us what NOT to do/be is just as valuable as their teaching us what to do/be. Being open to learning from others is the first step on the long journey through the universe that we all undertake to unfold into greater levels of love, joy, and awareness. It is easy to SAY that we love others but... It is more difficult to SHOW that we love others. All it takes to show that we love others is to "love one another; as I (God) have loved you." (Bible: John 13:34) Treating others with such loving kindness is easier said than done. So how does one begin to love others?… by doing the following: 1> LOVING OTHERS IS ACTING AS IF THEY ARE WORTHY
"For one human being to love another… that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation." (Rainer Maria Rilke)
Everyone exists because God loves them and with that love all things are possible. Everyone is perfect in God's eyes and is loved more than they will ever know. We are our own worst enemy when we think, act, and treat others as anything other than Divine Beings. When we think "I hate them"
or "They do not deserve to live" or "Too bad they are (fill in the blank)… otherwise we could be friends" or "If only they were more like me" or "If only they believed like me", we are saying the God made a mistake when "they" were created. Constant criticism of others does nothing to change them and it hurts us. Being unloving to others is like taking poison and expecting them to die… when it is you who will be harmed by the barrage of your unloving thoughts towards them. To stem the tide of negativity towards others, you need to start one thought at a time. As you go throughout the day, for every person you see (yourself or others) say silently to yourself "I love you as Soul". Soul Love is impersonal and unromantic. You can love someone's Soul even if you actually hate everything about them because their Soul is the "love" part of them. It is the perfect part that God sees, that God knows, that God loves. That is how you can connect with their worthiness and act as if they are worthy… and really mean it (for more click here)! 2> LOVING OTHERS IS RESPECTING THEIR BODIES
"We too often love things and use people when we should be using things and loving people." (Rueul Howe)
The primary means for showing love to others is respecting the body that God gave them. To respect the bodies of others requires that you do it no harm. Most would agree that doing obvious things like helping others to breathe, eat, drink, sleep, get exercise, receive proper clothes and shelter - especially where they have difficulty in doing this for themselves - shows other people's bodies respect. If you love the other person, contribute to their health by nurturing their bodies with loving touch. Leo Buscaglia (the "Love Guru") has rightly said that four hugs a day are the minimum for good health, 8 a day are really needed, and 12 a day lead to personal empowerment (for more on loving touch, click here). To show love to another, work to encourage them to love their own bodies. So often we join others in the present day trend of "woundology" (Caroline Myss) where we trade stories about how ugly, bad, or imperfect our bodies are. Let's stop the insanity: love is the only way to respect bodies whether it is yours or others. Think for a moment how hard it is for you is exist in a world without love… this is often how your bodies live all the time. They go on quite unappreciated: who can work well under those conditions? No one! 3> LOVING OTHERS IS RESPECTING THEIR MINDS
"Love is a good teacher, it teaches in no time at all." (Pierre Corneille)
Mental "woundology" is greatest damage that we routinely do to one another. We think that by sharing our sorrows that we are supporting others. The reality is that continually sharing heartache - especially once the painful crisis has passed - only serves to keep our wounds and theirs alive. For what we lavish our attention on is what we manifest into our reality. Everyone has made their share of mistakes… we are meant to learn from them and move on. We show the greatest respect to others when we refuse to keep their pain alive… when we speak of ways that they can solve their problems and move past their pain. Or when we show them the path to their own empowerment or how to achieve their dreams… anything but nursing their pain. 4> LOVING OTHERS IS RESPECTING THEIR EMOTIONS
"Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired." (Robert Frost)
Emotional "sandbagging" is another way we often disrespect others. We encourage sandbagging when we recommend "ego defenses" which have us inappropriately handling our emotions. Help others to deal with the emotions head on… for that is the truest love and the highest form of respect. "Ego defenses" include: * denial ("the upsetting event is not really happening to me"), * repression ("the upsetting event really never happened in the first place"), * dissociation ("was there an upsetting event? I cannot remember one"), * projection ("the upsetting event is happening to anyone else but me"), * minimizing ("the upsetting event happened but it is no big deal… so what?"), * conversion ("the upsetting event will be OK after more sex, food, drugs"). 5> LOVING OTHERS IS RESPECTING THEIR SPIRITUAL BELIEFS
"Love is the only satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence." (Erich Fromm)
Religious beliefs are the most sacred part of any individual. In many different past lifetimes, I have been a Jewish rabbi, a Roman Catholic priest, a Russian and Greek Orthodox priest, a Protestant minister, a Buddhist monk, a Hindu cleric, a follower of Confucius, Lao Tse, Islam, Sihkism, Shinto, and numberless other religious, spiritual, and philosophical paths. I have translated religious texts (for the best of these, click here) into many languages over the course of several lives. I have great respect for all beliefs for all religious paths can lead one to a greater love for God. I show this respect by not trying to convert others to my point of view. For I know that each path contains it's own beauty and offers it's own special gift to it's followers (for more on this, click here). I have found that showing this respect is one of the greatest gifts of love that I can give others. 6> LOVING OTHERS IS ACCEPTING THEM AS THEY ARE
"We love the things we love in spite of what they are." (Louis Untermeyer)
No one is perfect, not me, not you, not anyone else. No matter what you dislike about others, it is of vital importance that you value others - just as they are right now. For by doing so, that is how we create peace within our own hearts. The fact is that we all are - from the saints to the sinners - a "work in progress": changing every day and evolving into becoming who we already are. As Philo the philosopher advises, "be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." When you can accept others just as they are right now, this is the ultimate way of respecting the hard battle that they are fighting. If you can think of them as Soul, as a being struggling as you are, you will find that it is not so very hard to achieve this level of acceptance. 7> LOVING OTHERS IS SHOWING THEM KINDNESS
"All disease is related to a lack of love… all healing to giving & receiving unconditional love." (Bernie Siegel)
Love is the most powerful force in the universe. It is the universal solvent which cuts through all hate, all fears, all obstacles, all difficulties. Where difficult, problematic relationships exist, it is due to the absence of love energy between us and others. By always holding thoughts of loving kindness toward others in your heart, you rebuild the love energy bridges between you and other(s). This dissolves away the problems between you and others like magic without you trying to change them (which would be a form of psychic attack and bad karma). Giving unconditional love to others is the greatest gift that you could ever give them. 8> LOVING OTHERS IS SHOWING THEM COMPASSION
"Love is the strongest force the world possesses, and yet it is the humblest imaginable." (Mohandas Gandhi)
Although it may be hard to believe, the truth is that everyone does the best they can with what they have. For everyone is just living out what they have learned in this or previous lives. Compassion comes when you realize that those who hate and hurt others are just lashing out against times when they were hated and hurt themselves. For it is then that you can see that "it is the pain talking" and not the person. Given that you understand there are no truly bad people - only hurting people who say and do bad things - you can be compassionate towards every person in every situation. Pouring the oil of compassion, tolerance, and understanding on the troubled waters of daily life is the very essence of loving others. 9> LOVING OTHERS IS SHOWING THEM RESPECT
"Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real." (Iris Murdoch)
Everyone is a spark of the Divine and brings a unique note to the universal song we are all singing (notice that the word uni-verse means "one song"). This means that everyone has something unique and valuable to contribute. Even though you may not understand their contribution or believe it is valuable, know that it is. Unfortunately, the world is all too ready to teach us that others should be discounted because they differ from us in some way (gender, race, nationality, religion, etc) when we are all the same and equal as Soul. That is why the word "Namaste" is such a powerful greeting because it conveys respect in a very pure way. For when we respect ourselves and others, we are acting from one of the deepest places of unconditional love. 10> LOVING OTHERS IS ACTING TO FREE THEM
"Love is like water in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays, clutch it and it darts away." (Dorothy Parker)
One of the highest forms of unconditional life is to prepare your loved ones to live without you. For only when those you love are completely self reliant are they totally free, safe, and protected for the rest of their lives (for more on what it means to be self reliant, click here). Even if that freedom means that they walk away from you forever, you have given them gifts that will help them wherever they go. If you truly love them, then you should want them to be free. Free to make their own choices, even if it means making mistakes. Free to find their own love, even if it means feeling heartbreak. Free to live their own life on their own terms, even if that life will bring them pain, especially if you can see it and they cannot. For love with freedom is the only way that it can be truly unconditional. 11> LOVING OTHERS IS SHOWING THEM FORGIVENESS
"Love means never having to say that you are sorry." (Erich Segal)
What keeps us firmly stuck to our negative baggage is the fact that we cannot forgive others for somehow failing us. Sincere, heartfelt forgiveness is the solvent that unsticks our fingers from this baggage, allowing us to drop it. Dropping it is the best thing that we can do for ourselves and others. Forgiveness does not mean condoning what happened or just forgetting about it or not learning from it. All of those are valuable lessons that we spent emotion learning. What forgiveness means is releasing the anger and other negative emotions that keep us stuck in unforgiveness of others. For it is these negative emotions that keep us from loving and living happily ever after because they keep our hearts closed when they need to be open for health and life. 12> LOVING OTHERS IS ALLOWING THEM TO BE HAPPY
"Life is short and we never have enough time for gladdening others' hearts. Be swift to love!" (Henri Amiel)
If there is one key to showing unconditional love to others, it is this. As William Penn said, "any good that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again." Making people happy, helping them to be happy, and allowing them to be happy are all ways of showing others unconditional love. The greatest monuments we leave behind us are helping a child to smile, a friend to laugh, a stranger to feel better. Small, random acts of kindness done out of "love and love alone" are the easiest ways to show our unconditional love for others. Credits: adapted from channeled information Rules #44: Becoming a CoWorker With God: "Why We Are Here"
"For one human being to love another… that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation." (Rainer Maria Rilke)
Why Are We Here? For most of our human lives, we are primarily concerned with gaining experience in the worlds of karma. When we have reached a certain level of advancement, we realize that it is in our interest to learn and work within this system of divine justice. And when we have achieved a certain level of mastery with the laws of karma after many cycles of reincarnation, we can begin to understand why we have undergone such a long and extensive journey through the universe in the first place. Becoming Who You Already Really Are For at the beginning, in the end, and all throughout our personal trek the reason behind everything we have learned, endured, suffered, and triumphed becomes clear. No matter where we are, no matter what we are doing, being, or becoming, we are growing in our ability to love so that we can become an ever better CoWorker with God as we serve in the unfolding majesty of His/Her Creation. So how does one become a CoWorker with God?… by being the following:
1> SELF JUDGMENT: FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL
"Believe in no other God than the one who insists on justice and equality for all." (George Sand)
All religion, philosophy, and spirituality can be summed up this way: "Only love is real. All we have is this moment now. Choose love at every moment." That is easy to teach but hard to live. Therefore most of these systems go for the opposite: something easy to live (to attract and retain followers) and something hard to teach (to keep the "shamans" - the ones who know the system - employed). Since daily life is often enough of a challenge, the relative ease of the man-made systems helps it's followers to get what they need and to learn what they can from life. Eventually, after many incarnations, if there is one thing that karma ingrains in us, it is the necessity of acting at all times for the highest good of all concerned. For the greatest good is the centerpoint of all existence and the place where love flourishes the best. What is the greatest good is always a judgment call: one that only lifetimes of experience can help us to make with the highest accuracy and the greatest consistency. For it is by our choices that we are judged. And it is our choices that determine how we best can serve as a CoWorker with God. 2> SELF MOTIVATION: ALWAYS LENDING A HELPING HAND
"'Let me help'… we'll recommend those three words even over 'I love you'." (Classic Star Trek)
"I love you" is perhaps the most overused and misused phrase in any language. It is so easy to say those words and often so hard to mean them. That is because meaning them generally requires us to take action to give those words meaning. The actions that we choose to take as well as those we avoid taking are usually the truest measures of our love. It is our actions that reveal our hearts: when we say "let me help" and we do it, that shows our love far more than any telling can do. When we stand by loved ones "in sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer", we show them more than words can say that our love is real… and when we fail to, we show everyone that it is not. If we act to prevent or end situations that put our loved ones in the way of harm, we again show others the quality of our love. It is all too easy to turn a blind eye or a deaf ear and say "that's not my problem". Being a CoWorker means "lending a hand" wherever you are because you will not pass that way again. It means that because God has put you where you are, you have agreed to do your best to help however you can. It means deciding to lend a hand… not having to be told to do so. 3> SELF INTEGRITY: HONESTY & TRUTH ABOVE ALL
"This above all: be true, be true, be true." (Nathaniel Hawthorne)
Unshakable honesty and personal integrity is the very essence of being a Coworker with God. Our journey of life is all about developing this capacity for discernment: learning what works and what does not by direct personal experience with the laws of karma through many incarnations. For it is only upon the rock of truth that we can stand as CoWorkers with God. In the universe, our every thought, belief, intention, and action is known by God more precisely than we can ever know. So the only one we can ever deceive by departing from truth is ourselves until the weight of karma shows us the futility of doing so. When we begin to connect with truth, we find that it exists at many different levels. As we unfold into this greater awareness of truth, our perception of it changes as our consciousness expands. Truth remains the same: we are just able to see it better as the scales of illusion fall away. The more we connect with truth, the better we become as coworkers. 4> SELF DISCRETION: BALANCING SPEECH & SILENCE
"Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow." (Oliver Wendell Holmes)
Words are the vital connection between actions and truth for "as we believe, so shall we do". Nothing manifests into the universe without thoughts. And thoughts cannot be communicated into action without the words expressing the ideas. Almost always before we become known by our actions, we are recognized by our consistently spoken words, by what we usually choose to share by our speech, and by what we always remain silent about. Nothing snares us karmically as much as our tongues: the sooner we learn to control them, the better coworkers we will be. 5> SELF CONFIDENCE: BEING BRAVE VOYAGERS
"I am endued with such qualities that if I were turned out of the realm in my petticoat, I were able to live any place in Christendom." (Queen Elizabeth I)
Courage is the fuel that gives us strength to make our journey through the universe as we explore the worlds of karma and reincarnation. If you feel you are lacking in courage, know that coming to Earth to have a spiritual experience was in and of itself a great act of bravery. Aristotle said that "courage is the first among human qualities because it guarantees the others". Courage is the golden thread that draws us ever higher into the inner realms and helps us be better CoWorkers with God. 6> SELF BALANCE: SERVING AS HUMBLE INSTRUMENTS
"We are all but humble instruments in the service of God." (Thomas Jackson)
All Souls are created equally and are equally loved by God. God does not value Mother Theresa more and Adolf Hitler less. Both are Divine creations and are equal in God's eyes. It is only humans who make value judgments
about the merit of individual lives labeling them saint or sinner, great or small, good or evil. The spinning wheel of karma works to reverse fortunes until we are brought to the place of loving service as humble instruments working with God to cocreate the universe. 7> SELF IMPROVEMENT: BECOMING STATE OF THE ART
"As long as you live, keep learning how to live." (Seneca)
The universe is always unfolding so we will always find ourselves in a state of change. In any life, we grow, then we age. We live, we learn, we contribute to the evolution of consciousness. During our personal journey, we work ourselves from darkness to light, from negative to positive, from karma to dharma. We do it again in life after life until we transition into the inner worlds where we continue to unfold… for there is always more to becoming "state of the art" in coworkership. 8> SELF RELIANCE: BEING COMPLETE WITHIN THE SELF
"The great lesson that nature seems to teach us at all ages is self-dependence, self-protection, self-support." (Elizabeth Cady Stanton)
The most terrible truth that anyone will learn is… they agreed to experience all that has, is, and will happen to them. The universe operates under this simple rule: "all that happens is by prior agreement". These agreements are made with one simple purpose: to teach the individual to become whole and complete within themselves as they unfold along with the constantly changing universe. For the more complete we become within ourselves, the better we become as CoWorkers with God. 9> SELFLESS COMPASSION: ALL ARE CONNECTED
"I have seen the face of the enemy and I find that we are they." (Anonymous)
Our journey of reincarnation is driven by our need to take responsibility for our actions (personal karma) and our duty to all life (group karma). Since we are individual sparks of God, we each must learn in our own way (individuation). Yet since we are part of the "one song" of the uni-verse, we learn from our connection to others (divination). Compassion springs from realizing that all of us are on the same journey and will ultimately arrive at the same destination. That journey is through the worlds of karma and that destination is love, the heart of God Itself. 10> SELF RESPECT: HONORING OURS & OTHER'S CHOICES
"Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood." (Helen Keller)
All roads lead back to God... but all roads are not the same nor do individuals travel along the roads in the same way. Whether we realize it or not, all of us are seekers after truth and each will come to truth in the way that is best for them. An essential part of becoming a coworker is honoring the path, life contract, and choices that we make and others make in their Soul's
journey in this and other lifetimes. We are all unique sparks of God choosing the "succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood" that is best for us. The highest form of respect coworkers can show is allowing others their own choices/lessons and forgiving ourselves for our own personal choices/lessons. 11> SELFLESS EMPOWERMENT: BEING ALL YOU CAN BE
"Every creature is a word of God." (Meister Eckhart)
One of the greatest acts of love we can do for another is to show them how to be complete within themselves. As the old adage goes: "catch a fish for a person and you feed them for a day… teach them to fish and you feed them for a lifetime." When we empower others to fully enjoy their birthright as Divine Beings, we pass on the flame of love others gave to us when they brought us into our own power. It is that flame of love which fills the universe with the energy that is so necessary to it's unfoldment. We were all created to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us as coworkers… we all do that when we "be all that we can be." 12> SELF DISCIPLINE: SERVICE FIRST, LAST, AND ALWAYS
"I shall do good, I shall do His work; I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place… if I do but keep His commandments and serve Him in my calling." (John Henry Newman)
It is one of the great ironies of human existence that humans seek to maximize love and to minimize service. Yet one of the easiest ways of getting more love is by giving more loving service. For as we give from sincere service from our hearts, they naturally open. As they open, we become ever more receptive to the flow of love which, by it's very nature, is a circle of giving and receiving. The fastest way to step into the flow of love is by the work that we do for, by it's very nature, our work is what engages the majority of our time. Having the discipline to give loving service first, last, and always is what prepares us "the work for which all other work is but preparation": CoWorkership with God. Credits: adapted from channeled information Rules #4: Rules for Healing - If You Truly Want to Heal
For Those in Healing Just in case you wondered if there are rules for healing there are... The truth is the healing rules listed below operate very impersonally just like any other physical phenomena. Follow these rules and you will heal. For these rules will put you on the road to recovery. Ignore them and you will continue to be ill. No one is free from them ever. So either you decide to work with these healing rules or you will constantly bang into them. The choice is yours. 1> YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO EVER HEALS YOURSELF You heal for two reasons. One, you believe you deserve to heal and that belief manifests as your desire to be healed. Two, your desire to be healed manifests as action on your part to get healed. So many people delay, deny, and diffuse their healing because, at bottom, they do not want to live. The desire for healing is truly the desire for living. You will only heal if you really want to live. 2> TRUE HEALING COMES FROM WITHIN YOURSELF No one outside of you can take responsibility for your problems. This means that no one outside of you can really heal you. The truth is that healers are merely facilitators and vehicles for your healing. Healers can advise you, counsel you, and prescribe treatments for you but they cannot heal you. Only you can heal the spiritual cause ("as above") of your bodymind problem ("so below"). 3> YOU ARE TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR HEALING When you go to see a healer, you go for a few hours a week at most (unless you are seriously ill). So do the math: the rest of the time your healing is totally up to you. It's your job to take the medicine the healer has prescribed. It's your job to do the things the healer has told you to do. It's your job to assess if the healer is helping you or if you should find
another one. So if you are not getting the results you want from your healing, the first place to look for answers is in the mirror. 4> YOUR STATE OF WELLNESS IS YOUR STATE OF BEINGNESS Everything in the universe is energy. We may appear to be "solid" matter but looks can be deceiving. If you magnify your cells down to your atoms, you would see that you are made up of subtle energy fields and not matter. Your body-mind is constantly radiating, absorbing, and conducting this energy. Every action, every thought, every choice effects your energy field. Dis-eases occur in the body-mind due to imbalances and blockages in your energy field resulting from how much/little you have honored the needs of your body- mind-spirit, respected your path, and learned your lessons. In the long run, your state of wellness is the net result of your state of beingness: body, mind, and spirit. 5> YOUR BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT ARE ONE BEING Looking back one hundred years ago, we are amazed that anyone could believe that you could heal the body without healing the mind. Looking forward one hundred years from now, people will be amazed that anyone could believe that you could heal the body and the mind without addressing the spiritual issues arising from the manner in which you conduct your life. Your body, mind, and spirit are intimately connected and act as one. Your body-mind-spirit connect you to your lessons, your path, and to the oneness of the universal collective consciousness. 6> YOU WILL NOT HEAL IF YOU DO NOT LEARN YOUR LESSONS The Earth is a big schoolhouse. You are here to learn lessons (if you have not already consulted Rules #1 for Being Human, please do so). There are many ways for you to learn your lessons. You can learn through pleasure or pain. The God Self within you, your Higher Self, is the one who sent you the problem to be healed to advance your learning. So the best way to heal your problems is to accept that you have lessons to learn and to do your best to master them. 7> YOU CAUSED THE PROBLEM AND ARE THE CURE Your life is always up to you: do not ever allow anyone to convince you otherwise. Too many people too often allow those in the healing professions to define their lives by accepting the life or death sentences the healers decree. Only God is perfect: any human healer can be wrong (even me). Case in point: if I had believed my doctors I would have died by 21, yet somehow I have lived to be 42+. I lived because I accepted that I had caused my problems and the answers to them lay within me. I was born
deeply wounded because I had wounded others… but it was my wounds that led to my gifts. I healed because I forgave myself. I forgave myself because God loved and forgave me. 8> HEALING UNLEASHES YOUR NATURAL ABILITY TO HEAL Benjamin Franklin said "God does the work (of healing) and the physician takes the fee". And it's true. Your body-mind was designed to be a selfmaintaining system, automatically correcting for the problems inevitable to your existence on Earth. In fact, the truth is that you are always sick because your body-mind is in a continual state of fighting off threats from your environment. You become ill when the body-mind is too overburdened by afflictions to go on functioning normally. Dis-eases and dis-orders result when long standing threats to the body-mind-spirit go untreated for too long. Death is only inescapable when the energy field is so degraded that the physical matter cannot be supported. 9> CURES HEAL ONLY IF THEY CREATE ENERGY HARMONY The energy field that surrounds, penetrates, and binds your body-mindspirit is in a perpetual state of activity. It is constantly in motion, continuously taking in and sending out vibrating energy waves. It processes signals of energy created by your actions, your thoughts, and your emotions as well as by your environment and lifestyle choices (food, sleep, exercise, etc). Medicine, drugs, or herbs work to heal your body-mind because the vibration they produce has the right harmonic relationship to the part of the body-mind currently in a state of dis-ease. These harmonic boosts serve as an aid to the the self regulating mechanisms of body-mind in eliminating the energetic imbalance that caused the dis-ease to begin with. For only a balanced field can supply the body-mind with sufficient energy to maintain a healthy state of matter. 10> GREATEST HEALING TOOLS YOU HAVE ARE LOVE AND JOY One of the best physicians there is has the sign saying "Laughter is the Best Medicine" prominently displayed in his office. That's just goes to prove that the best things in life are still free - even in a doctor's office! When people come to me for healing, I always know that those who can laugh about their ills and have a sense of humor about their problems will do the best. No matter what treatment you are on, it can always be improved by "a smile a day to keep the doctor away". 11> TO HEAL IS TO ACHIEVE A BALANCED STATE OF WELLNESS Simply defined, healing is achieving and maintaining a state of "wellness". Wellness flows from fully developing each dimension of body, mind, and
spirit and finding an overall balance between them. Ultimately, this balance is achieved by honoring your spiritual path and your unique purpose in life. 12> HEALING IS NOT ONLY REPAIR BUT ENHANCEMENT Most view healing as a process of just "repairing" problems. Yet when all the repairs are completed, continuing the healing process takes you to the next level of your growth and enhancement. The universe is a continuously unfolding and expanding creation and there is always more to explore and to grow. Healing is the means to get you there: it becomes a journey and not just a destination. If you are not convinced that these rules are for real, see how they relate to the Top 10 Causes of Death... take a few minutes to save your life. If you want to clear, heal, and balance your karma, there are additional rules you will need to consult... the Rules of Past Life Healing.

Rules# 7: Rules for Illness - What You Need to Know If You are Ill For Those in Illness Just in case you wondered if there are rules for illness there are... The truth is the illness rules listed below operate very impersonally just like any other physical phenomena. Follow these rules and you will heal. For these rules will put you on the road to recovery. Ignore them and you will continue to be ill. No one is free from them ever. So either you decide to work with these illness rules or you will constantly bang into them. The choice is yours.
1> ILLNESS ALWAYS HAS A PURPOSE - IT IS ALWAYS PERSONAL The first thing anyone asks once they have contracted a serious illness is "Why me?" The question gets asked without the person expecting the answer. Yet there is an answer and it is "you agreed to it in advance for your own growth". This is directly contrary to the strongly held societal belief that illness is something that "happens to us", that somehow it is outside ourselves. The truth is that your illness has everything to do with you. Your illness has been directed at you by spirit. Usually you agreed to it before you incarnated here. Or more often you contracted it while you were "down here" because you strayed from your path. Your illness is meant to propel you on a journey of self-discovery. If you cannot accept this, then your illness will be harder than it has to be. 2> ILLNESS REFLECTS A STATE OF DIS-EASE WITH YOUR LIFE If you have ever noticed that most people seem to be in a perpetual state of complaining about their lives, it is because they have "forgotten" why they are here. People are here on Earth to learn lessons and, in general, have chosen to accept experiences that are harder than they can handle hence the complaints. This usually manifests as a profound state of dis-ease with their life. This feeling of dis-ease, if deep and long standing, manifests as illness. Thoroughly joyful, ecstatic people are usually in great health. If they do have serious illness, it is because they have chosen it at the level of spirit to advance their learning (and they know it!). 3> ILLNESS=IMBALANCES IN GIVING/RECEIVING LOVE When we are babies, most of us are bathed in love. Babies are totally focused on getting and giving love every moment of every day. Often, they get touched, hugged, and kissed more as babies than they will for the rest of their lives. In return, babies are absolutely not afraid to give love or to get it. As we grow older, we are taught to fear getting or giving love. Love becomes associated with pain and we narrow the circle of those we allow to come close enough to us to exchange love. Yet love is as important to our health as the air we breathe or the food we eat. When we are chronically unable to give or receive love, the lack of this vital nutrient always manifests as illness in our bodies or minds. 4> ILLNESS=LACK OF/DERAILING LIFE'S PURPOSE & MEANING Even when we are receiving and giving our minimum daily requirement of love, we still can be starved for another vital nutrient. This is the inherent need in each one of us to find purpose and meaning in our lives.
At some point as we grow older, we must ask ourselves: "Am I leading the life I want to lead?" and "Am I the person that I want to be?" If the answers to these two questions are "No", this never fails to induce a profound state of dis-ease in our lives. Either we take the action that is needed to turn those "No-s" into "Yes-es" or illness will manifest in our bodies-minds. 5> ILLNESS=RESULT OF HOW YOU HAVE LIVED YOUR LIFE It is amazing how readily when can accept that this is true for other people and not for ourselves. It makes sense to us that women we know, who cannot accept their femininity, contract breast and/or ovarian cancer or that men who, struggle with their masculinity, contract prostate cancer. Or that those who have been inflexible all their lives manifest the rigidity in their bodies as arthritis. Or that those who have difficulty speaking up for themselves end up with throat cancer. Yet, we all have a blind spot when it comes to ourselves that keeps us from seeing how our conduct is helping or harming our overall health. The truth is "the fault lies not in our stars, but in ourselves..." 6> ILLNESS=CHRONIC PATTERNS OF SPEAKING & THINKING Everything you think and speak, in essence, is a command to the universe. So if you are always thinking and saying "I'm tired", then you should not be surprised when you always are. Of if you are always thinking and saying "I'm going to die before my time", then you will. So watch your thoughts and your words for these are your spiritual commands that will manifest in your body-mind. 7> ILLNESSES ORIGINATE AND HEAL IN YOUR ENERGY FIELD Unless you are on the brink of death, before you seek a cure by chopping (major surgery), burning (laser/radiation), or poisoning (hard "drugs") your body or mind, first give peace a chance. You owe it to yourself to seek cures that work with your body and mind instead of against them. Do energy work, meditation, visualization - anything you can - to avoid the drastic measures that chopping, burning, and poisoning present. Since you are all energy, the problem and the solution healing to your illness begin and end in your energy field. For more, see the "Rules for Healing"! 8> ILLNESS CURED BY ACCEPTING & MASTERING IT'S LESSONS If you are looking for a miracle cure, here it is: "Choose to love at every moment: forgive everyone, everything." This magic cure will speed you through whatever lessons you have to learn. When you have learned your lessons, the clouds of illness hanging over you will magically part - with one important exception. That is where death has been deemed as the ONLY way for you to learn. Yet we are all creators here so anything is possible. See the "Rules #1 for Being Human"...
9> MORE SERIOUS THE ILLNESS=GREATER NEED FOR CHANGE In the spirit worlds, those on the Earth plane with serious illnesses are called butterflies. This is because illness has put them into a cocoon of survival. To keep on living, the "butterfly" must struggle and force it's way out of the cocoon by learning the lessons that life has to teach. The more serious the illness, the greater the need to change ways of life that no longer serve the individual. 10> ILLNESS STAYS WITH YOU IF YOU IGNORE IT'S LESSONS Illness used to be the greatest excuse in my arsenal for not living. As long as I ignored it, illness clung to me. Once I "listened" to it, my illness fell away. So no excuses: just choose to live!!! For more, see the "Rules for Recovery"! 11> IGNORANCE OF ILLNESS FEEDS IT'S POWER OVER YOU The saying the "ignorance of the law is no excuse" is never more true than when it comes to illness. Illnesses run like trains on a predefined track with predetermined timetables. While you choose to ignore the illness, it keeps going, chugging on schedule down the track. Ignoring it never stops the illness train. What stops it is a conscious desire on your part to switch to a safer length of track. 12> ONLY YOU CAN REALLY KNOW YOUR ILLNESS You are the only one who lives inside your skin: 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. When it comes to diagnosing and treating your condition, the difference between you and your doctor/healer is that they have read more books than you have and they have more practical experience with healing dis-eases than you have. When it comes to caring about and understanding your condition, never forget that only you really care and only you really understand because only you are living with it. You can always learn more about your condition but your doctor can never live inside your skin. So until they do, you will always know best. So listen to the doctor but be sure to follow your heart and your gut.

Rules #9: Rules for Recovery - Getting Better is Being Better
For Those in Recovery Healing/recovery from any mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual illness follow a familiar pattern which you may already know. These "Rules of Recovery" are from the most famous recovery source of all: Alcoholics Anonymous The 12 Step Program. Recovery becomes the search for serenity. You may remember the famous Serenity Prayer: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference." 1> RECOGNIZE THAT YOU HAVE A "REAL" PROBLEM You can never heal any problem unless you first admit that you have one (see the "Rules #4: Healing"). In fact, from the moment you recognize you have a problem, your healing process begins. In the language of 12 Steps, "we admitted we were powerless over our problems (fill in the blank with your problems): that our lives had become unmanageable". We promise ourselves "we are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness". We choose to know "hope instead of desperation". 2> YOU NEED HELP FROM OTHERS TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM If you could solve the problem on your own, you would have. When you cannot, you need to get help. In the language of 12 Steps, "we came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to a joyous and peaceful way of thinking and living ". We promise ourselves "we will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it". We choose to know "faith instead of despair". 3> BECOME OPEN TO RECEIVING THIS HELP FROM OTHERS Knowing that you need help is no good unless you are open to receiving it. Openness to receiving help always involves courage to make an extraordinary leap of faith. For to heal, we must put ourselves in the hands of others. In the language of 12 Steps, "we made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of this power of our own understanding". So
we promise ourselves "we will fully comprehend the word serenity". We choose to know "courage instead of fear". 4> AGREE TO DISCOVER THE INNER CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM Your illness and your problems are intensely personal and meant to propel you on a journey of learning (see the "Rules #7: Illness"). You cannot heal the problem unless you are willing to discover it's inner cause. You cannot discover the inner cause unless you are willing to look within. In the language of 12 Steps, "we made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves". We promise ourselves "we will know peace". We choose to know "peace of mind instead of confusion". 5> ADMIT TO OTHERS THE EXACT NATURE OF YOUR PROBLEM Admitting your problems to others is what allows the darkness to be brought to light and is what allows the healing to transform your state of being. Admitting your problems to others allows them to benefit by avoiding the mistakes you have made. In the language of 12 Steps, "we admitted to this power of our own understanding, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs". We promise ourselves "no matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others ". We choose to know "self-respect instead of self-contempt" because we believe we are worthy. 6> MAKE THE COMMITMENT TO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER Changing for the better is simple but often hard to do. It is simply this: "Choose to love at every moment: forgive everyone, everything". For negative emotions - like fear, hate, anger - lie at the bottom of illnesses and love is the cure. In the language of 12 Steps, "we were entirely ready to have all these defects or character removed". We promise ourselves "the feelings of uselessness and self-pity will disappear ". We choose to know "self-confidence instead of helplessness ". 7> ASK OTHERS TO HELP YOU CHANGE FOR THE BETTER Change can happen in an instant. To make sure that the change lasts, we need the help of God and all other people in our lives to keep our feet planted on the path of change. For know that if we do not stick to the necessary changes we have agreed to make in our lives, our problems will return to us. They return until we have learned our lessons or our bodiesminds have no choice but to die. If we die, it so that we can get another chance to learn to love. In the language of 12 Steps, "we humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings". We promise ourselves "we will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in others". We choose to know "the respect of others instead of their pity and contempt". 8> PUT THE PAST BEHIND YOU AND MAKE A NEW START
You life can only begin anew once you have agreed to put the past behind you. You cannot change the past, you can only become willing to make amends for it. Others may or may not forgive you. Whether they do or not, realize that you are making amends primarily for your peace of mind and to ingrain in you the habit of always projecting love. In the language of 12 Steps, "we made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all". We promise ourselves "self-seeking will slip away". We choose to know "a clean conscience instead of a sense of guilt" because today is the first day of the rest of our life. 9> TAKE STEPS TO "SHOW" YOU HAVE MADE A NEW START Our bodies and minds were not meant to hold negative emotions - they were meant to receive and give love unconditionally. We cannot heal our bodies-minds as long as we continue to drink in the poison that sustained negative emotions and bad treatment of ourselves and others produce in us. In the language of 12 Steps, "we made direct amends to such people (including ourselves) wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others". We promise ourselves "our whole attitude and outlook on life will change". We choose to know "friendships instead of loneliness" because we know that we are loving and loveable. 10> IMPLEMENT THE CHANGE EVERY DAY, ONE DAY AT A TIME To be effective and long lasting, change must be a continuous daily process. Many fail to make changes because doing so forever seems overwhelming. The process becomes manageable when we take it one day at a time and allow ourselves to have setbacks without ever giving up on ourselves. In the language of 12 Steps, "we continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it". We promise ourselves "fear of people and insecurity will leave us". We choose to know "a clean pattern of life instead of a purposeless existence ". 11> GOD WILL ALWAYS HELP YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY Opening ourselves to God's help is the only way that we ultimately succeed. In the language of 12 Steps, "we sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out". We promise ourselves "we will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us". We choose to see "the love and understanding of our families instead of their doubts and fears". 12> AS WE HELP OTHERS TO HEAL, WE HEAL OURSELVES In the language of 12 Steps, "having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these twelve steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs ". We promise ourselves "we will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for
ourselves ". We choose to know "the freedom of a happy life instead of the bondage of our problems". If you are not covinced that these rules are for real, see how they relate to the Top 10 Causes of Death... take a few minutes to save your life.

Rules #32: "Going to Hell": By Violating the Rules of Healing "Shit happens" is a favorite expression in the United States. It summarizes quite eloquently the mistaken belief that karma falls down on each one of us randomly just like rain. So that when "bad things happen to good people", we can just shrug our shoulders and feel sorry for ourselves. This is especially true when it comes to "suddenly" getting ill: we say "shit happens, what can you do?" Yet there is nothing sudden about most illnesses... and like rain, we see clouds gathering, but we are sure they will go away. Then when a bolt of lightning strikes us in the head, we are totally surprised. So Say to Your Soul, "Hell No, I Won't Go!"... So let's take the guesswork out of it... Let's see what happens when we do not honor ourselves, when we let our chakras and auras go to "hell in a handbasket", when we fail to heed the call of Soul and live as we know we "should". Before We Go to "Hell": Let's Review Quickly How Our Chakras Work The energy field (otherwise known as the aura) that surrounds, penetrates, and binds the body-mind-spirit is in a perpetual state of activity. It is constantly in motion, continuously taking in and sending out vibrating energy waves through openings in the aura (otherwise known as chakras).
The human energy field processes signals of energy created by one's actions, thoughts, and emotions as well as by one's environment and lifestyle choices (exercise, food, sleep, etc). When someone thinks and chooses in a manner that is consistent with love and with their agreed upon path in life, they experience abundant energy and vibrant health. It is the ability to love that keeps the energy chakras open and flowing. So when one thinks and chooses from fear, power, lack, negativity, or selfishness, the flow of energy is blocked. Dis-ease then occurs in the body-mind due to imbalances and blockages in the energy field resulting from how little one has honored the needs of body-mind-spirit and respected their path. These blockages deprive the area of the body-mind being fed by the chakra by restricting the flow of energy to below what is necessary for good health. Since there is more than one chakra, energy will continue to reach the total body-mind despite the blockages. However, the areas around the blocked chakra slowly get diseased. Such blockages do not occur evenly or randomly across the body. They occur in the chakra associated with "the area of life" where the individual is not acting in a manner that is consistent with love and/or their path in life. Persistent blockages manifest as problems which can be as minor as infrequent pain and as major as cancer. To truly heal illness usually requires a life change ultimately leading to a personal life more connected to the core of one's being. It leads us to that deeper part of ourselves called the Higher Self. And when we refuse to be led, the consequences can become severe and dramatic. We descend into our own personal hell... and we build it brick by brick, one day at a time. And So As We Believe and Act, So Shall We Become #1: NEGLECTING THE "ROOT CHAKRA" Related Diseases: Sexual Dysfunction, Prostate/Ovarian-Breast Cancer Just because someone incarnates into a male or female body, it does not make them a man or a woman. To become a man or a woman means embracing their body's gender with a glad heart while being grateful for the lessons it will bring. Yet, in past lives, most of us usually develop a preference for one gender over the other. When we find that we are either consistently "wishing and hoping" or "acting as if" we were the opposite sex, we are telling our bodies to reject those gender specific parts of ourselves that "do not belong" to us. This dis-ease with our own gender, if not confronted and resolved, will result in sexual disorders. Similarly, if we find ourselves with partners who reject or belittle how we honor our sexuality and we do nothing to "defend ourselves", this lack of
self love will also be interpreted as us rejecting our own sexuality and opens us to disease. #2: NEGLECTING THE "SACRAL CHAKRA" Related Diseases: Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Kidney & Liver Disorders Remember when you were young and had lofty dreams of "what you were going to be when you grew up"? If you are like most people, somewhere along the way, you look up and realize that not only have you failed to achieve your dreams but that your life is a nightmare. Who grows up wanting to be a "corporate kiss ass", a "back stabber", a "spineless yes person", a "hanger on for retirement"? We have all come to Earth to create our lives as we go about unwinding our past life karma. Often we struggle in the tides of karma, get weary, and are dragged under into dis-eases that reflect our "karmically lazy" choices. The weariness manifests as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. The chronic indecision manifests as liver disorders while anger at or disappointment in ourselves hits the kidneys hard. #3: NEGLECTING THE "SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA" Related Diseases: Stomach Cancer, Gastric or Peptic Ulcers, Anorexia, Bulimia The dynamic of the universe is this… we are all individual sparks of God, all connected, just all separate at the same time. This creates a natural tension between our need to honor our own needs versus honoring the needs of others. Almost all of us come into this life with a strong tendency from past lives either to usually put others ahead of ourselves or usually put ourselves ahead of others. When we always sacrifice ourselves for others, we eat away at our own self esteem by caring too much about other's opinions and expectations. This eating away at ourselves often manifests quite literally in our physiology as stomach cancer and gastric or peptic ulcers. On the other hand, when we put our needs ahead of others, we may put undue attention on ourselves that can take life threatening turns as in the case of eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia. These eating disorders are often the result of an individual's desire to control their bodies because they feel out of control in all other areas of their life. Ironically, those who end up starving their bodies into submission gain the ultimate control by focusing others on their own self induced struggle between life and death. #4: NEGLECTING THE "HEART CHAKRA" Related Diseases: Heart Attack, Stroke, Congestive Heart Failure It is no wonder that Heart Disease is the Number 1 killer worldwide.
Human hearts were designed to receive and give love unconditionally. Love is as vital a nutrient to our heart as anything we eat or drink or do for exercise. Since we all have come to the Earth to grow in our ability to give and receive love, it is not surprising, that when we are unable to do so, we develop problems in our hearts. Usually, this is caused by our inability to love ourselves. Since we all are constantly picking up so much "negative programming" from our families, our friends, our schools, and our society, that it is no wonder we fail to love ourselves. For if we are not as successful as Bill Gates or as gorgeous as a Barbie doll or having emerged from past lives as strong as Hercules, we inevitably feel "less". It is long held feelings of internal dis-ease in our minds that manifest as disease in our hearts. #5: NEGLECTING THE "THROAT CHAKRA" Related Diseases: Throat Cancer, Thyroid, TMJ, Teeth Problems Speaking up for ourselves is the most effective way of letting others know of our wants and our needs. It saves time and energy and takes the guesswork out of others interpreting our grunts and groans. It was the reason that language evolved. Speaking up for ourselves is not just telling others mundane things like "pass the ketchup". It involves "carving out and defending" a sacred space for ourselves. As in telling others when they have hurt us, especially as to why and how they have treated us when it is unacceptable and has violated our sacred space. Often when we consistently fail to speak up for ourselves when we have been hurt, we are unconsciously repeating disempowering patterns from past lives. Yet these unspoken words stick in our throat chakras blocking the energy until they get so shut down that they become easy targets for disease. #6: NEGLECTING THE "THIRD EYE CHAKRA" Related Diseases: Eye-Sight Disorders, Ear-Hearing Disorders Shutting the eyes and closing the ears to the call of spirit often leads to "real" problems with our eyes and ears. The truth is most vision and hearing problems are the result of the person's desire to avoid looking at or listening to the truth about some aspect of their life. Dealing only with the symptoms (getting eyeglasses or hearing aids) "masks" the problem without solving it. The real tragedy is that such "eye/ear care solutions" fits in perfectly with the mass conscious belief that sight and hearing problems are the natural result of aging. Whereas what is usually true that as we age we become "set in our ways", and it is actually this inflexibility that is responsible for our vision and hearing "impairment".
Sight and hearing loss are only permanent for those who have "shut their eyes" and have "closed their ears" to the call of spirit and to the possibility that 10,000 others - who say eyes and ears can never be healed - are wrong. #7: NEGLECTING THE "CROWN CHAKRA" Related Diseases: Migraines, Nerves, Spine, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Likewise shutting out the call of spirit can result in blinding, migraine headaches as the war rages on between mind (which responds more to our "lower ego") and body (which responds more to our "Higher Self"). The Crown Chakra is always the focal point of such a war because it is the point when divination "ends" (one's connection to the collective consciousness) and "individuation" begins (one's own unique individuality, the note one's brings to the universal song). This war can rage throughout the entire nervous system effecting all the nerves and the spine. In extreme cases, it can manifest as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's Disease. These diseases are usually found in spiritually advanced individuals who are so attached to their ego that they believe and act as if it were possible for them to control everything. (FYI, that is a job reserved for God!) The only way to break down such "hard heads and willful hearts" is to show them, in a way they cannot ignore, that they are more than this. That they are more than their mind, their body, their heart… they are Souls and CoWorkers with God. #8: NEGLECTING THE "PHYSICAL (MATTER) BODY" Related Diseases: Skin Cancer, Bone Diseases, Arthritis, Muscle Disorders It is most often our "skin and bones" that show the "years and mileage" that we have undergone in our physical existence. Take Skin Cancer which often strikes those in "trapped" in life situations that have been "eating away at them" for years: it is the simply outer manifestation of the inner pain. Or Bone Diseases which often strike those with unhealed past lives gnawing away at them deep inside. Or Arthritis which is the outer manifestation of long standing, inflexible patterns of being: whether it been rigid thoughts, unyielding beliefs, or disempowering actions. And finally, Muscle Disorders, which relates to one's ability to "experience life as a joyous dance". After love, regular doses of joy are essential to one's well being. "All work and no play" makes Jane / John not only a dull girl / boy, it eventually makes them one prone to major diseases which will put them out of their misery. #9: NEGLECTING THE "ASTRAL (EMOTIONAL) BODY" Related Diseases: Self Destructive Behavior, Addiction, Drugs, Risky Sex
Of course, there are many that do not wait for a friendly disease to come their way. Their emotions drive them to self destructive behaviors designed to end their pain. Many like to bring on death by building their coffin one nail at a time. They "ramp it down" by smoking (which clouds their view of their problems), drinking (which numbs their pain), or medicating (let's be honest: prescription and over-the-counter drug abuse is far more prevalent than hard core drug use). They "ramp it up" by reckless spending (which leads to death more often than is reported), risky sex (which leads to disease or to "Mr. Goodbar"), or extreme sports (let's be honest: the news is littered with stories of those who "tragically" died young). Either way self destructive emotions are the true cause of death. #10: NEGLECTING THE "CAUSAL (KARMIC) BODY" Related Diseases: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Schizophrenia, MPD Some in the psychology field believe that "all behavior comes from somewhere" and that "on the inside all behavior makes sense." Often the "somewhere" is past lives. Take Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: OCD in this life is usually directly traceable back to a past life where the disempowering trait or behavior was created. The trait was created in the past to empower the person to either live through a life threatening situation or to prevent them from re-experiencing a traumatic death in future. Problems crop up when this "cellular learning" inherited from past lives are no appropriate in the context of the present life. Similarly, Schizophrenia (SCH) and Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) are both caused by improper functioning of protective "past life" mechanisms. During life threatening situations arise, aspects of past life personalities will emerge to help the present day person solve problem(s). When the danger is passed, these past life personalities will automatically be shut down and reintegrated back into the present day person's memory. The trouble arises when the individual suffers constant threats from their environment due to long standing patterns of physical and/or sexual abuse. The shut down mechanism is disabled and the past life personalities (MPD) or personality (SCH) will then compete for the attention of the body-mind. #11: NEGLECTING THE "MENTAL (THOUGHT) BODY" Related Diseases: Alzheimer's Disease, Phobias (All Types), Paranoia Less extreme forms of mental problems can also have their origins in past lives. Take those who suffer from Alzheimer's Disease. They often choose to incarnate into situations where they are bound to repeat old patterns to see if they can transcend their inflexibility. After living a lifetime, it is often crystal clear as to whether the individual has or has not transcended their
"unwanted" patterns. Contracting Alzheimer's Disease is the usual penalty when they have not… a similar more drastic but less common penalty is Depersonalization Disorder (disconnection from one's mental processes). Other "blasts from the past" into mental states are phobias (which 9 times out of 10 originated in past lives) and paranoia (past life conditioning to always expect the worst case scenario). #12: NEGLECTING THE "ETHERIC (INTUITIVE) BODY" Related Diseases: Recurring Nightmares, Sleep Disorders, Hallucinations The Etheric Body is the final frontier between the worlds of reincarnation and karma and the pure realms of Soul. During sleep, people are in the closest contact with these Soul realms. So when those of us on the Earth are "going out of control" from the universal perspective, what is a Soul to do? If it is inconsistent for our life path for us to contract an illness, Soul tries to reach us through our dreams. By nature, dreams are fragile, foggy things that are usually confusing and are quickly forgotten. To get our attention through dreams, they need to be dramatic and repetitive. If we ignore them, they can become recurring nightmares and/or sleep disorders. Sleep deprivation over a long enough period of time usually forces us to pay attention. Unfortunately, it can lead to hallucinations. If we experience these hallucinations, and it is determined that our mind is not breaking down, it is likely that "inner beings" (angelic or demonic) are trying to contact us directly. The Get-Out-of-Hell-for-FREE-Card If you have recognized your disease above - and how you have participated in it's creation - you have taken the first step toward freeing yourself from your own personal hell. There is only one way to get out of hell for good and that is to accept that you are totally responsible for all that has happened to you. When you have learned all that your illness has to teach you then you can become free from it. As long as you think that it has happened to you "by accident", that it is "random", or it is a "cruel joke played on you by the God and/ or the universe", you will never get out of hell. If you hold such beliefs but have failed to get out of hell on your own, why not try accepting responsibility for your problems? Your problems are all that you have to lose.

Rules #20: Secret's Out- Spiritual Reasons for the Top 10 Causes of Death The American Way of Death Here is how the Rules for Illness (#7), Healing (#4), and Recovery (#9) play out in "real life" among "real people". Below are the Top 10 causes of death in the United States of America, but for accident ("there are no accidents in a universe run by agreement") and suicide (usually the result of an overload of spiritual challenges relative to the person's ability to handle them). For each cause, the spiritual reason for it is given. If you have one or more of these conditions, I urge you to look inside and see if - maybe - this applies to you. 1> HEART DISEASE… Failing to Love and to Learn to Love Yourself (and Others) The heart "is the first thing in us to have life, and which has dominion over all the body." So it "should be the first and the last to love and worship God, both when we begin and end our actions, be they spiritual or bodily, and generally in all the affairs of life." The heart was designed to receive and give love unconditionally. Love is as vital a nutrient to our heart as anything we eat or drink or do for exercise. Since we all have come to the Earth to grow in our ability to give and receive love, it is not surprising, that when we are unable to do so, we develop problems in our hearts. Usually, this is caused by our inability to love ourselves. We all are constantly picking up so much "negative programming" from our families, our friends, our schools, and our society, that it is no wonder we fail to love ourselves. For if we are not as successful as Bill Gates or as gorgeous as a Barbie doll, we feel somehow "less". It is these long standing feelings of internal dis-ease in our minds that invariably manifest as disease in our hearts. 2> CANCER… Failing to Take Action to Solve Long Standing Life Conflicts In the inner worlds, cancer is known as the "butterfly disease". Like a butterfly, the cancer patient has to struggle to break out of the "cocoon" of their disease or die in the attempt. More often than not, the cancer "victim" has a pattern of long standing life problems that have been "eating them up inside".
Their inability or unwillingness to effectively deal with these problems is what created the cancerous cocoon to begin with. Often, cancer is the manifestation of the person's conflicting desires to escape the situation and to "keep things as they are" because change would be too painful. Cancer becomes the means of escape that many take by doing nothing to stop it from leading them to a "final solution". 3> STROKE (CEREBROVASCULAR "ACCIDENT")… Failing to Honor One's Body-Mind Stroke should be renamed to "strike" for strokes are invariably caused by the body-mind going on strike against the individual's lifestyle. To those around the individual, strokes are seldom a surprise because they can usually point to the ways in which the person has failed to honor themselves. Stroke "victims" generally have not consistently honored their bodies by giving them the proper food, drink, exercise, sleep, and other things "which everyone knows" they should do. They do not honor their minds by consistently getting the "time off" they need to play, "re-charge", and "recreate" themselves. It is "no accident" that since stroke "victims" do not honor their bodies or minds as the temples of spirit they are, the temples collapse around them. Unfortunately, it is only when the temple of the body and mind are permanently damaged by stroke that they learn this lesson - in this life if they are lucky, in the next if they are not. 4> PNEUMONIA - INFLUENZA… Failing to Face Overwhelming Fears and Challenges Just as cancer is the inability to deal with long standing problems, fatal bouts of pneumonia and influenza usually result from an individual's inability to handle multiple fears and challenges overwhelming them in a shorter, more compressed timeframe. Usually the person is drowned in the flood of emotions (fear, anxiety, panic) that engulf them. The "internal floods" manifest as severe lung congestion which cuts off their connection to breath and ultimately their connection to life. 5> DIABETES (MELLITUS)… Failing to Connect with Joy and the "Sweetness" of Life If diabetics had their own theme song, it might be this one from Henry Purcell: "a person of sorrow and acquainted with grief…" Many diabetics will tell you that the restrictions they endure with this disease are cause enough for their sadness. And yet it is the sadness from many lifetimes that has usually caused them to contract this disorder. The bodies of diabetics cannot handle sugar because they cannot connect with life's sweetness. Aside from love, it is joy and happiness that are the most
necessary "spiritual" nutrients that are required to sustain life. So the best advice for diabetics is to "stop worrying and get happy". 6> AIDS (ACQUIRED IMMUNE DEFICIENCY) - HIV… Failing to Love and Accept Oneself for Who and What One Is In the course of many lifetimes, we have been and will be all things - from a mass murderer to a saint (and yes, it is possible for the same individual to have had incarnations as each… one is personally known to me!). It is no accident that AIDS and HIV originated in the gay community as the primary lessons of those in "alternative lifestyles" is self discovery and self acceptance. Those who become "tired" of constantly fighting off the rejection and criticism from others manifest this weariness in their bodies. At the same time, their bodies become unable to fight off threats from the environment and become "self" rejecting. The inevitable result of this self rejection can be nothing but fatal, nothing but death. 7> LIVER DISEASE (CIRRHOSIS)… Failing to Accept What One Has Made of One's Life Cirrhosis of the liver is the ultimate disease of choice. For those who get it have chosen consistently to "drown their sorrows in a bottle" rather than facing them. For those in life situations or places in the world where hopelessness, misery, and despair are the daily diet getting drunk may seem a sensible alternative. And death that lies waiting at the bottom of the glass may seem to be the only true hope. 8> CIRCULATORY FAILURE (ATHEROSCLEROSIS)… Failing to Be Open and Receptive to Life More commonly known as "hardening of arteries", this disease is caused primarily by the "hardening of the attitudes". The entrenched attitudes which narrow and restrict the mind manifest as hardened and constricted arteries in the body. Cutting off the flow of new ideas and ways of thinking literally reduces the body's ability to flow and circulate life energy properly which then results in hardened arteries. 9> KIDNEY DISEASE… Failing to Transmute Negative Emotions (Anger, Hate, etc) Properly There is a common misconception that the body is a machine and that the organs handle only physical functions. The truth is the organs also process an individual's emotions and can get easily overloaded when the individual is emotionally "out of control". This is especially true of the often besieged kidney whose job it is to remove waste from the body. The most toxic emotional waste products are anger and hate which are lost opportunities to move a person toward forgiveness and tolerance. If these toxic emotions are "indulged" in excessively and consistently, they will deluge the kidney and cause it to fail.
10> LUNG DISEASE… Failing to Fully Take in Life due to Feelings of Unworthiness Every moment we make a choice of how much life we take in by every breath we take. Air contains the only vital life force that we need constantly (ten minutes without air and most people die). Significantly our breath is also the only physical function that we have complete and conscious control over. That happens because by choosing the quality of our breath we are given the opportunity to choose the quality of our life. When we breathe deeply, we nourish our body profoundly. When we fail to do so, we slowly starve ourselves. Breathing disorders, like eating disorders, are a reflection of an individual's beliefs about their worthiness to receive the nourishment that gives life. Those who cannot breath deeply cannot live fully. Those who cannot live fully usually come from a place of mistakenly believing they are not worthy. The truth is everyone is a child of God and it is that and that alone that makes everyone worthy of life. Credits: adapted from information from the United States National Center for Health

Are You Being Harmed by Past Lives? In my humble opinion, the best indicator of how deeply you are now being effected by your past lives is found when you get the results of our exclusive "Past Life Profile". Your profile will tell you where and how deeply you are effected by past life problems - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. Below are the top ten signs that you have a serious past life problem. If you have more than seven of these problems, you know that they are adversely effecting your life now. I beg you to seek out past life counseling - if not with us, then with someone in your area. #1: OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER Every attitude and belief you have comes from somewhere sometime. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in this lifetime is usually directly traceable back to a past life where the disempowering trait or behavior was created. The spiritual purpose of OCD is force the individual to seek the answer to why they are now being "plagued" with thoughts and behaviors that they have no control over. The obsession to do or not do a particular thing or act in a certain way was created in a past lifetime (everything comes
from somewhere and at one time everything made sense). The related compulsion does not stop until the past life is healed. The compulsion is like having a knife stuck in your back. No matter how much you bandage the wound, you will not heal it until the knife is pulled out. The past goes right on sending the pain of compulsion which goes on feeding the undesirable present day obsession until the pain is stopped at it's source. When the life lesson associated with OCD has been fully learned and "absorbed" into the individual's body-mind, the "disempowering" trait or behavior will fall away. Often all that is needed is for the individual to confront the past life(s) where the OCD originated. Going back to the past becomes the means of freeing those "afflicted with OCD" from being condemned to repeat those lessons in the future. #2: SUICIDAL THOUGHTS - ATTEMPTS For many, the weight of the difficult spiritual path they have undertaken in life becomes too much to bear. This may manifest as dark periods where suicide seems the only solution to ending their pain. So if you are thinking of committing suicide or if you have already attempted it, you owe it to yourself to find out why. Take it from one who knows: suicide is NEVER the answer. Suicide only makes the problem infinitely worse. That is because all suicides are forced to return to a physical plane of existence in a body that is severely compromised in some manner. For example, most "Down's Syndrome" people are returning suicides. #3: FIBROMYALGIA-CHRONIC FATIGUE Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are diseases of "soul weariness" where the body in this life is so weighted down by past life resonances that it cannot function properly until it has had an abnormally long period of rest. These resonances manifest as toxins in your body that are stored in your cellular memory. The best thing to do for fibromyalgia is NEVER to give into the despair that is an inevitable consequence of prolonged pain and confinement to bed. Other "must dos" for this disease include drinking as much water as you can every day (to flush out the toxins), getting on a daily program of laughing and smiling, and doing some exercise - even if it is only moving your eyes in a regular pattern for an hour daily. For chronic fatigue, the best thing is to walk, increasing the time a little each day. #4: MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES - SCHIZOPHRENIA Multiple personality disorders (MPD) and/or schizophrenia (SCH) can be caused by the emergence of past life personalities that arise to help the present day person solve problem(s). The trouble comes when these past life personalities are not properly reintegrated back into the present day person's memory. What normally happens is, that when an individual is in crisis, they access the "unused" part of their brain (where their past life personalities are stored) to help them overcome it. When the crisis is averted, the pathway to that part of their brain is automatically shut off. In cases of MPD or SCH,
the crises are either so severe or so chronic that this shut down mechanism cannot function properly. The mind then has difficulty distinguishing between the current and all prior personalities. In a sense, the prior personalities come back to life and fight for the attention of the current body-mind. In SCH, there is usually a very dominant prior personality which drives out all others except themselves and the current day personality. In MPD, a host of prior personalities jockey for position at the forefront of the person's awareness and end up "taking turns". #5: EXTREME EATING DISORDERS-WEIGHT PROBLEMS In the most recent generations, the Holocaust and other tragedies have driven many to reincarnate with serious imbalances in their weight. Those are seriously overweight-obese are usually suffering from a past life resonance which causes the body to become determined never to starve again. "Enough" weight is put on the individual by the body to keep it safe. Those who are seriously underweight-anorexic are usually suffering from a past life resonance which causes the body to believe that it still must be caught up in the struggle for survival. Individuals become compelled to drop weight and give a variety of other explanations for it (as in they need to "look good", to "be perfect", to "control their out of control lives", etc). The reality is that there is usually a past life personality (often one from a life of abuse or religious "self-abnegation") "starving for attention" and for the healing that only knowledge of the past brings. #6: MULTIPLE BIRTH DEFECTS-NATAL CONDITIONS Multiple medical problems at birth (three or more) are usually the result of an individual being on the spiritual "debt consolidation karmic payment plan". Since birth conditions can never be ignored and usually last for the entire lifetime, they become the perfect vehicles for the working off of serious and complex karmic conditions arising from past lives. It is as if all the individual's problems have been rolled into one big, gigantic ball and chain that the individual will be dragging around for "the rest of their life". #7: UNEXPLAINED CHRONIC PAIN AND/OR ILLNESSES If doctor(s) have told you "I cannot find anything wrong with you" but you are certain something is wrong, then both of you may be right. Past life problems can be remarkably resistant to present day treatments. If the problem truly does originate in the past, the solution will defy resolution using conventional present day therapies. However, if the source of the chronic pain or illness does lie in the past, then past life treatment can most likely produce fast and dramatic healing results. #8: UNEXPLAINED CHRONIC PHOBIAS-INAPPROPRIATE FEARS A fear or a phobia can be classified as "inappropriate" when the situation triggering the fear or the phobia in fact poses no imminent threat, no forseeable danger, or no actual risk of harm to the individual. Like chronic pain, chronic phobias arising from past life trauma can be very resistant to present day treatments. If the fear is buried in the past, then it is the most quickly healed by going back to the past. Often confronting the fear or phobia is enough just to send it away. #9: RECURRING NIGHTMARES ABOUT TRAUMATIC DEATHS
Often all the people we see or hear or know about in our dreams are just other manifestations of our personality. If the people we see in our dreams seem to be historical (dressed in clothes from the past, etc), they are more than likely who we were in a past life. If these people are being harmed or killed, it is usually your body's way of working off fears associated with these traumas from past lives. Working off karma in the dream state - believe me - in the end is often much more pleasant than healing it while you are "awake" and it manifests as "reality". Know that if you wake up terrified by a nightmare, it is infinitely less frightening than experiencing real trauma played out as harm to your physical body. #10: SEVERE CHRONIC LUNG CONGESTION Many people on the brink of contacting the greater totality of themselves experience a release of cellular toxins over an extended period of time that comes in the form of nasal or lung congestion. This is a necessary cleansing which provides the opening for past life healing. It is your body's way of crying and releasing all the grief that has accumulated within you over the years. Credits: compiled over the course of years of Past Life Channeling Sessions Rules #14: A Prison Without Walls - Your Body, Free Will, & Karma The World Goes 'Round in Circles As you grow in spiritual awareness, you will come across a contradiction between the concepts of free will and karma. It goes like this "If all is a working out of karma and agreed to in advance, then how do I have free will?" but "If all is free will then I can do what I want but then why are my past lives holding me back?" And the Answer is Your physical body is - literally - a prison without walls. You are free to do whatever it is your body will or will not allow or compel you to do.
Here is How Your Body is an Agent of Free Will & Karma:
1> YOUR PHYSICAL BODY IS RUN BY YOUR INNER BODIES Annie Besant explained it best: You get the karmic body "you have prepared for yourself" directly from "agents of the Lords of Karma." This "inner double" karmic body is "built according to the elements you yourself have provided." These elements include your character strengths and weaknesses, your skills and abilities, your desires and dreams "after which is shaped your physical body."
In "very truth, you are self created, responsible for all that you are." Your inner bodies "condition the exercise of your faculties." They shape your beliefs and thoughts which governs your choices and creates your reality. 2> MOST PEOPLE RUN ON THE "TRAIN TRACKS" OF KARMA Often most people cannot even notice that their lives are running along the "train tracks" of karma laid out by their inner bodies. They never try to test the limits of their "self made prisons" to see if they can be something more. They merely accept that their life "is the way it is" and that "some things will never change". It is this type of limiting thinking that keeps most safely inside the box of karma that their body-mind has become. They use their free will only to the extent that they are "thinking inside the box". Thus their karma and their free will coexist: never interfering or contradicting one another. 3> YOUR HEREDITY CREATES THE "TRACKS" OF YOUR KARMA The genetic coding of any individual physical body is formed by it's past life predispositions and is stored as cellular memory (see Rules #15: On Cellular Memory). It gives the individual the potential to contract any number of physical ailments and to undergo any number of different life experiences. Whether or not someone manifests a particular condition or encounters certain life experiences is totally dependent upon the choices individual has made using their free will. These choices can be made consciously (you are aware of them) or unconsciously (your Higher Self sends them as a vehicle for your learning lessons). 4> YOUR ENVIRONMENT SETS THE ROUTE OF THE "TRACKS" Each individual carries into this life the potential for manifesting recurrence of past life condition(s). This potential results from conflicts created and left unresolved in past lifetimes. When an individual encounters similar situations in the environment of this lifetime, they get the opportunity to complete that issue. They complete an issue when they address the deep seated causes of the problem. If the person is successful in solving the problem, their environment transforms to move themalong to the next set of problems. If not, their life is "switched" back to a similar situation, so they can try again to resolve it. 5> YOUR EMOTIONS FUEL YOUR RIDE ALONG THE "TRACKS" Emotions are literally "energy in motion". Highly charged emotions that are not ever expressed and released will have adverse - if not life threatening - effects on an individual's physical and mental condition.
To heal, it is not necessary to express such emotions directly to the person(s) involved in a given life situation. All that is really needed is for the individual to acknowledge the truth of their emotions, honor them, and develop unconditional self love. What makes your ride on the tracks of karma bearable is the love, compassion, and forgiveness you develop for yourself and others along the way. 6> HEREDITY + ENVIRONMENT + FREE WILL=RESOLVE KARMA So the life of most people on Earth today can be summed up by the above formula. The heredity (which they chose before they came), their environment (which they inherit but are driven to change), and their free will (the actions they "choose" based on their emotions) create their life. If you look at the mass of humanity, you will find that most people usually do not transcend the circumstances of their birth and their upbringing. Heredity and environment become the blinders that keep them plodding faithfully along their track of karma. If these life conditions are "bad enough", they also become the motivation for an individual to exercise their free will and work toward overcoming "the crummy 'karma' cards they have been dealt". 7> TAKE ACTION TO TRANSCEND HEREDITY/ENVIRONMENT For every action there is a reaction, for every cause, an effect: this is the basic principle of karma. Free will is involved in the selection of the action taken. Karma is involved in creating the circumstances that make selecting an action necessary. Evolution and spiritual growth in joy, love, and awareness are the end results of the karmic process. When you recognize that your physical body is merely one of the garments your Soul wears to gain experience, you can understand how to transcend your circumstances. In essence, you can begin to exert your free will to break out of the box of karma... and expand the prison without walls. 8> TRANSCEND HEREDITY=HANDLE SPIRITUAL CAUSES Every problem contains the solution within it. Although there is a "point of no return", all physical, mental, or emotional conditions experienced within this lifetime can be healed. They can only be transcended once the spiritual causes which created them are resolved (see Rules #2: Your Body, Mind, Spirit Works, Rules #4: Healing, Rules#7: Illness, and Rules#9: Recovery). The spiritual causes are those you "inherited" from past lives the major karmic issues you are resolving. 9> TRANSCEND ENVIRONMENT=HANDLE SPIRITUAL EFFECTS All physical, mental, or emotional environments experienced within this lifetime can also be transcended. The media is full of stories about how
certain individuals have overcome incredible odds. They can only be transcended once the spiritual effects which created them are resolved (see Rules #2: Your Body, Mind, Spirit Works, Rules #4: Healing, Rules#7: Illness, and Rules#9: Recovery). The spiritual effects are those you "created" in this lifetime - the karma created by how you react now. 10> TRANSCEND EMOTIONS=SETTLE CAUSE & EFFECT Your karma functions like a fence: it sets up the boundaries within which you use your free will to work on the "problems" caused by heredity and environment. To climb over the "fence" of karma, you need to transcend both your heredity and environment. Doing so, necessarily involves working on your emotions. It is your emotions that drive you to take action to resolve the causes and effects of your heredity and environment. Emotions can only be "settled" when the causes and effects from your heredity and environment are "settled". 11> TRANSCEND KARMA=HANDLE FREE WILL RESPONSIBLY Karma works to develop your ability to handle free will responsibly. Karma perates impersonally, giving you the opportunity at every moment to become open to greater levels of love and compassion. The goal is to give you needed experiences so you evolve into greater levels of awareness and responsibility. 12> IN COWORKERSHIP, KARMA&FREE WILL BECOME ONE All you do at every moment is your choice. Once you accept total responsibility for who you are, for what you have done or will do, and for all your choices, life straightens out. You become what you are and you see yourself as Soul. Once you do, you are able to become a fully realized co-worker with God.

Rules #15: It's Not in Your Stars But in Your Cells... Cellular Memory How Cellular Memory Works If your body is the "prison" (Rules #14: Your Body: A Prison Without Walls) which compels to you work off
your karma within predetermined limits, then your cells are the tiny bricks that create this prison. As it says in the Talmud, "we do not see things as they are, we see them as we are". That is because we are always looking through the world through the eyes of our constantly changing cellular memory. Unlocking Your Cellular Memory Body work that acts on your cellular memory (like Past Life Healing, Remote Releasement, and Geometric Repatterning) are powerful tools for transformation. In essence, such body work makes your prison more comfortable and spacious to live in. They open doors into other ways of seeing, being, and becoming that your original cellular memory had closed. Here is how cellular memory works: 1> YOUR BODY IS AN INTELLIGENT, INTEGRATED HOLOGRAM Your being - body, mind, and spirit - is actually a completely intelligent, integrated, and individual hologram. This means 3 things. One, that distinctions between your body, mind, and spirit are "artificial" ones that exist only to make it easier for you to comprehend your existence here on Earth in linear time. You are a whole, holistic being: not a sum of your parts. Two, that each point within your hologram "contains all of the information of the whole". The complete "blueprint" for your existence is contained and infinitely accessible in each and every one of your cells. Three, that to be successful - permanent and complete - your healing must address the hologram of your being holistically. Meaning that "body" can only be healed if "mind" and "spirit" are also treated. 2> CELLS ARE LIGHT & SOUND & ONLY APPEAR DIFFERENT Everything in the universe is energy. You may appear to be "solid" matter but looks can be deceiving. If you magnify your cells down to your atoms, you would see that you are made up of subtle energy fields and not matter. As those in the realm of physics are just discovering, the basic building blocks of energy are light and sound. At bottom, all cells are just manifestations of "light and sound in form". For as modern science is learning, all cells are essentially the same. "Turn off" the markers that cause the cells to differentiate and they revert to their original state… where they are capable of becoming anything. 3> CELLS ARE "BUILDING BLOCKS" OF THE "YOU" HOLOGRAM
The "body-mind-spirit" hologram "appears" to be composed of individual cells (another artificial distinction but one useful for discussion). Modern science teaches us that your body is formed as cells grow, multiply, and differentiate. In this way, your cells are the building blocks of your "bodymind-spirit" hologram. Inside each cell is the unique, complete hologram that is you. This hologram forms your bodies at all levels to become the vehicle for your karma in this lifetime. 4> CELLS HOLD PHYSICAL, MENTAL, AND EMOTIONAL DATA Modern science teaches us that your cells contain DNA which is the "blueprint" for the complete design of your physical body. They also hold the "blueprint" for your mental, emotional, and spiritual state. Your cells "remember" all of who you have been in past lives and all you have been in this life right up to the present day (hence the term "cellular memory"). So as you develop, change, and grow in any aspect of your life, your cells constantly update this "personal data". 5> TO LIVE, YOUR CELLS NEED TO RECEIVE AND GIVE LOVE Your hologram was designed to require "energetic" nourishment. The most critical form of nourishment is love energy. To live and thrive, your cells need to regularly receive and give love energy. Look all around you and you will see this truth. Those who regularly receive and give love energy enjoy vibrant health. While those who do not take such "love baths" age "prematurely" and tend to suffer from a wide variety of health problems. Literally, it is love that gives your cells life. 6> CELLS INTERACT WITH YOUR CHAKRAS & INNER BODIES Your energy chakras constantly nourish your cells with universal energy. Your cells in turn sustain your bodies at all levels. This in turn reinforces your chakras. When your chakras become blocked, your cells do not receive the proper nourishment. If your cells are not feed with love or universal energy for long enough, they become a "breeding ground" for dis-ease, dis-order, and illness. 7> CELLS ARE IN EITHER A "GROWTH" OR A "DEATH" STATE Cells are constantly growing and dying. They are the ultimate reflection of how the universe works. The universe is constantly changing, constantly transforming chaos into order, darkness into light... and it requires the same of all who inhabit it. So either you make the choice to live and to grow or your hologram makes the choice for you to die. The truth is illness is almost always a reflection of a person's decision to stay "stuck" (whether actively by making "wrong"
choices or passively by "doing nothing"). Read "Rules #7 for Illness", you will see how true this is. 8> THE NATURE OF YOUR CELLS ALLOWS YOU TO TRANSFORM Any changes made directly to your "body-mind-spirit" hologram have a profound and accelerated effect in healing. This happens because such changes effect your cellular memory, in effect rapidly updating the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual data on file. That is why Past Life Healing, Remote Releasement, and Geometric Repatterning can be so effective so quickly. This kind of transformative body work literally "removes" the unwanted data from the individual's hologram and "replaces" it with more empowering ways of being. Since your cells can be transformed in this manner, this "built in" flexibility allows you to transform your beingness and way of life. 9> CELLS REGULATE YOUR TRANSFORMATIONAL PROCESS Before you go thinking that you can dip into your cellular holograms at will, bear this in mind. Your cells also come with built in protections against transformation. If you have not earned the right to transmute your beingness, your cells will not allow you or your healer to access the hologram. There are 2 reasons. One, it is for your own safety: if you are not ready to handle the transformation responsibly, it will do you and others more harm than good if you change too rapidly or if you inadvertantly go into the "wrong direction". Two, it is for your own safety: if changes are made too quickly or incorrectly, it could cause serious damage to your hologram. Instead of being better off at any level, you could be worse off at all levels (this is the "wisdom of the body"). 10> CELLS=INHERITED PATTERNS MODIFIED BY EXPERIENCE Cells transform by adding, changing, or deleting "resonances" from cellular memory. Resonances are "inherited patterns of being modified by experience". "Inherited patterns of being" come from past lives. These patterns are meant to be "modified by experience" in this lifetime. Most of the time resonances are good: they are the sources of strengths, skills, abilities, and talents. However, those resonances which keep you from being all you can be today - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually - need to be healed.
11> CELLS "THROW OFF" PATTERNS NO LONGER SERVING YOU Cells are built to "dump" resonances that no longer serve you. Your cells do this the same way that the body rids itself of any unwanted waste: excretion, sweating, coughing, throwing up phlegm, etc. When you change, expect this "throwing off". 12> CELLS "INTEGRATE" NEW PATTERNS INTO AWARENESS Like nature, cells abhor a vacuum. Once old patterns of being are discarded, they must immediately be replaced by new - hopefully positive and empowering ways of seeing, being, knowing, and becoming. Your cells always seek to throw off negative patterns and to integrate positive patterns of being into your awareness. Credits: inspired by "Take Off Your Glasses and See!" by Dr. Jacob Liberman and
Rules #30: "Towing the Iceberg": Rules of Past Life Resonance "Row Well and Live" Do you often sense that you are weighted down inside? Like you are dragging invisible baggage that you can feel but cannot see? Are you usually unable to take advantage of opportunities that come your way because "something" is holding you back? Have you done positive affirmations until you are "blue in the face" but they never really work? Do you feel like this man in the rowboat vainly trying to tow a gigantic iceberg? If you have had any or all of these feelings come up regularly in your life, then it is likely that the "weight you feel inside" are "past life resonances". * If your body is the "prison" (Rules #14: Your Body: A Prison Without Walls) which compels to you work off your karma. * If your cells are the "tiny bricks" (Rules #15: It's in Your Cellular Memory) that creates this prison of karma around you. * Then your Past Life Resonances are the mortar keeping the "bricks of your cellular memory" firmly in place, until you rearrange them. So What Are Past Life Resonances... and Why Should You Care About Them? Past life resonances are simply "inherited patterns of being modified by experience". These patterns of being are the sum total of all the learning that you have inherited from past lives. This is how keep all that you have learned in past lives without being overwhelmed by all the details of your previous incarnations.
These "patterns of being" are meant to be "modified by experience" as you live each lifetime. Most resonances are good: they are the sources of your strengths, skills, and talents. However, those resonances which keep you from being all you can be today - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually - need to be healed. So Why Do Resonances Cause Problems... and Why Must You Heal Them? "Problems" from the past - like most problems - just get worse until they are resolved. Even worse, if these problems come from the past they are remarkably resistant to present day treatments. This is because our past live resonances operate much like icebergs. Six-sevenths of the mass of an iceberg is below the sea surface and so it is always more massive and immovable than it appears. It is the same way with past life resonances, they are buried deep inside your unconscious mind. So deep that it can take years of patient effort to heal them. And until they are healed, they will be like the stone in your shoe. Yes, you will move forward. However, your journey will be slowed, made needlessly uncomfortable, and eventually stopped until you finally decide to "solve" the "resonance problem". So What Are the Sources of Past Life Resonances… and Do You Have Them? Beside each Past Life Resonance below is the internal dialog that goes with it. If you have heard any of these "lines of dialog" either playing in your head or running through your speaking, then you ARE being effected by such resonances. You will continue to be effected by them until you heal the problems in your past lives or in past events from your present life that caused them to become part of your being.
Here are the Most Common Forms of Past Life Resonances:
#1: ATTACHMENT: "I have to DO…", "I have to BE…", "I have to HAVE…" The hardest thing you will ever have to accept about your life in the universe is that you have chosen to be here. Almost always, the choice was made because there is something that you "HAVE TO" do, be, or have. Often, those "somethings" are dictated to you by the Lords of Karma after they have passed "sentence" on your "performance" in your last previous life. Just as often, those "somethings" are things we are attached to such as "I have to live one last lifetime of love with my mate", or "I have to be more forgiving to others", or "I have to have the experience of being wealthy." "Have tos" most often spring from regret, guilt, and shame that HAVE TO be overcome. As long as you are attached to a HAVE TO, past life resonances will ensure that you will be back life after life until you do not "have to" anymore. #2: VANITY: "Let me tell you…", "I am SO fantastic…", "I am SO horrible…" Each of us has within us the capability to be a "Mother Theresa" type Saint and an "Adolf Hitler" type of mass murderer. The truth is that each has a place in God's universe and each has a role to play. At one time, we have or will have all played all the roles. We come to learn that we are neither
"so fantastic" or "so horrible" but that we are all servants of God. Past life resonances of both the "fantastic narcissist" and the "horrible masochist" will cry out for healing until they are resolved. #3: INTOLERANCE: "We are the BEST…", "THEY are the WORST" Of all past life resonances, those involving rigid, fanatical intolerance "good-or-evil" beliefs, "we-or-they" attitudes, "black-or-white" thinking are among the hardest to heal. What it takes are lifetimes of experiencing things from all viewpoints to come to the ultimate truth of existence that "we have looked into the face of the enemy and find that we are they…" So if you cannot stand some group - race, sex, religion, sect, creed, nation - your intolerance will keep you spinning on the wheel of reincarnation until you can. For example, Romans come back as barbarians, Arabs come back as Israelis, Chinese come back as Japanese, whites come back as blacks, men come back as women, and so on until as Soul we can tolerate and embrace all ways of being. #4: UNFORGIVENESS: "I will NEVER forgive…", "I will ALWAYS remember…" Unforgiveness is the companion of intolerance: for those we cannot tolerate, we can never forgive because our past life resonances ensure that at a cellular level we always remember. Since our bodies were designed to carry our learnings forward from life to life, "never" and "always" can be quite a long time karmically speaking. And yet since our bodies were made to give and receive unconditional love, carrying negative emotions like intolerance and unforgiveness will cause us pain. The pain will "always" persist until we learn to "never" be intolerant or unforgiving! #5: HATE: "I HATE you FOREVER…", "I hope you SUFFER and DIE…" If left unhealed for too long, intolerance and unforgiveness manifest as the most extreme form of past life resonance: hate. Hate is THE most difficult resonance of all to heal. For hate is like fire: it can fuel itself indefinitely on everything it finds around it. Since we are infinite beings, vowing to hate forever is a command to the universe that - literally - can be carried out for millenia. What eventually stops hate is the heavy price it carries as we make our long journey as Soul. For hate is as surely a poison to the body at all levels - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually - as love is a tonic. Hating is like taking poison and expecting someone else to die because what you wish for others is what you will attract to yourself. It is you who will "suffer and die": is that what you want? Do you want to keep coming back... then keep on hating for it is a guaranteed ticket back here! For until you can fully embrace what it is that you hate, you will never fully share in God's love. For all that exist are created by God to serve his purposes in the unfolding majesty of His Creation. #6: PRIDE: "Let me tell you…", "It's ALL about ME…", " It's ALL about YOU…"
Closely related to vanity is pride. Our individual journey as Soul through the universe (karma) is "all about me" and learning about oneself is necessary to become fully Self Realized. At the same time, our journey is "all about others" as we develop our continuous connection to the God Source (our Higher Self) and the collective consciousness so we can become fully God Realized. Since some past lives involve learning "all about me" and other involve learning "all about others", it is very easy to become unbalanced about pride. Honoring the self while honoring others is always is a delicate balance. Yet, past life resonances are particularly good at working to "burn up" those who focus only on the "me" while it will "burn out" those who focus only on the "others". #7: GLUTTONY: "I GOTTA get me some of that...", "I can NEVER get
There are many things to love on this Earth: food, sex, money, power, nature, challenge, adventure, discovery. And the list goes on and on seemingly forever. That which you love down here - that which you cannot get enough of... are past life resonances that pull on you until you satisfy them. Morbid obesity will cure that love of food. Aids and other sexually transmitted diseases will douse the eternal flame of sexual desire. Become corrupted by power and you will be brought lower than low. Lose respect for the Earth and natural disasters will teach you otherwise. Gluttony kills. #8: ENVY: "Why do THEY have... and NOT me?", "Why are THEY like... and
Envy is always caused by misplaced attention. You envy in others what you use to have in a past life or what you have yet to create in a future life. Since all time is now, resonances manifesting as envy in the present life are created when you catch glimpses of your past or future self in another's life experience. Envy is the failure to realize that, along our journey of Soul in the universe, we have been and will be all things. Like hate, envy is a poison that sickens us until it is purged. It gets purged when we connect with the totality of ourselves and know that all is within us now. #9: ANGER: "THEY make me SO angry that I...", "I get SO angry because it is
Anger is the fuel that powers all the "negative emotions" that we have, especially hate and envy. It often seems to us that anger comes from outside ourselves ("they make me angry") but the truth is that anger ALWAYS comes from inside. In the beginning, anger is a signal from our emotional body that something is wrong, that somehow our sacred space has been violated. What we decide to do about this signal is our choice. If we get angry at something or someone else, we have chosen this as the response to the anger signal. Yet there are many choices we could make in response to the situation and anger is only one tool available to us. Instead of "getting so angry", maybe
it is better to "get so clear" about what really needs to be done to fix the problem for good. Many times the source of our anger does not truly lie in the present, particularly if the anger is a very inappropriate response to the current situation. Often this kind of present anger is really anger from past lives that needs to be acknowledged and so that the related resonances can be healed. #10: GREED: "For ME to get, I must TAKE from you...", "There is NEVER
Greed is the fuel that powers gluttony. Although we live in an abundant universe, it has taken us quite a long time to create societies on the Earth that realize the promise of abundance. So the fear of "lack" ("there will never be enough") is deeply ingrained in our collective consciousness and it invariably manifests as greed ("so I have to take all for me while I can because I will lack someday"). The companion of greed is "cheapness" ("since I cannot make more, I must spend less"). Both of these emphasize the duties to self at the expense of duties to others and manifest as "selfishness". Since these were often appropriate as defensive, survival strategies in past lives, they create deep and strong past life resonances that are both hard to heal and hard to avoid. Yet all around us every day in the news are examples of how greed hurts others and in so doing, leads to it's discovery. #11: SLOTH: "I am SO tired and so I CAN'T…", "I'll do it LATER, someday,
From a karmic standpoint, laziness is the central problem of human existence. The truth is most people are not the actors in their life's drama but the reactors to the karmic circumstances in their lives which require action to be taken. For example, most people get jobs, not out of a genuine desire to help others, but because they do not wish to live out of doors becoming subject to the elements and predators there. Most people only marry to satisfy desires for love, companionship, support, and sex etc. Karma, created by the individual's past life resonances, drives them to take the necessary action in their life that overcomes their natural sloth. #12: LUST: "I WANT this…", "I WANT that…", "GIMME, GIMME, GIMME!" Lust is the fuel that powers attachment and completes the circle of "negative" human desires. As long as you "want" something, you are being driven by past life resonances to experience something else that you have not already explored in past lives. All your wants become satisfied when you have finally experienced and are complete with all the Earth has to offer. Until then it is the "gimmes" (as in "give me this, give me that") which makes to world go around spinning Souls - each on their own path through the cycle of human experience. For only by experiencing something can we become free of it. And, in being free, are we ready to fulfill our destiny as CoWorkers with God.
Notice the parallels to the problems that are purged during the Dark Night of Soul. For one of it's purposes is to purge the last of our Past Life Resonances from us.

Past life healing can be one of the most powerful experiences that an individual has in any given lifetime. For the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual problems which have been "plaguing" an individual for many incarnations can be released "in the blink of an eye"... for those willing to follow the rules of past life healing (see our Past Life Case Histories for examples of such releases). We live in a loving, compassionate universe. God wants us all to know the joy that is our birthright. All we need to do is let ourselves out of the prisons we have created for ourselves in the past.
Here's how Past Life Healing Works...
#1: PAST LIFE HEALING IS DONE "BY PERMISSION ONLY" Whether past life healing is done by channeling or by regression, it is always only done by permission only. Your Higher Self, the Lords of Karma, your guides, and your angels decide just how much or little past life healing you will receive. This is necessary because the Earth is a big schoolroom designed to be teaching us all lessons at every moment of the day. Getting past life healing is like being allowed to glimpse the "answers to our life" at the "back of the textbook". Just like in grade school, the only way we really learn is by "working through the problems" on our own. So glimpses in the "back of the book" given by past life healing are limited to only the "best students" who can handle the knowledge responsibly. Limiting the flow of past life information is much easier in a regression session than in channeling which is why regression is more widely available. In regression, the ego function of the human unconscious mind will shut down, block, or distort the past life information that the individual is receiving if it is threatening to derail their life path. In channeling, the person's ego is bypassed but the information which is
transmitted to the channeler is also limited to what the Higher Self believes is in the best interests of the person's evolution as Soul. That is why some people are unable to be regressed and why channelers will be denied permission to work on others. #2: PAST LIFE HEALING IS THE TRANSFORMING OF KARMA Past life healing can alternatively be described as the clearing of karma, the healing of karma, and the transformation of karma to dharma. It can NEVER be described as the escaping of karma. If you are on the Earth, you are subject to the laws of karma and reincarnation. You can be free of karma in the sense that if you obey it's laws and live your contract, you can exist in peace. Yet advance on the spiritual path and break a karmic law and you will be amazed by how quickly and strongly karma comes back upon you. The goal of past life healing - as with all experiences in life - is to help you unfold in Soul awareness so that you can live the path of Dharma in CoWorkership with God. #3: PAST LIFE HEALING IS A PROCESS OF EVOLUTION Enforcing the evolution of each individual into Soul awareness is what the rules of Healing, Illness, and Recovery are all about. Those rules work to ensure that you stay on your path so that you meet your life contract. Past Life Healing works to expand and enrich your path so that you can accelerate in Soul awareness if you choose to do so (see "Hallmarks of the Spiritually Advanced"). Accelerating is much like peeling back the layers of an onion. The outer layers of past life problems are tougher and take longer to strip away while the inner layers are more compact and intense but easier to remove once they are reached. The purpose of working through the layers is to slowly realize the totality of your beingness so that you are not overwhelmed by the information. That is why we agree to "forget" our past lives before we come here... so we can concentrate on unwinding intractable bits of our karma. Once our karma is "straightened out" we can begin the process of fully reconnecting with all who we have been. By leveraging our past and integrating it with the present, we thereby empower our future by evolving into total awareness of ourselves as infinite Soul beings (which is the "Kingdom of God within us", our Higher Self). #4: HEALING THE PRESENT IS WHY WE MUST HEAL THE PAST Past life healing comes down to this... The point of all power is in the present moment because this NOW moment is the only one you ever experience. The Now that was present yesterday we call the past. The Now that will be present tomorrow we call the future. If you cannot be at peace with a particular Now moment in the past - whether from a past life or from a past event in the present life - you need to heal that moment. For what is unhealed
from the past can keep you from being all you want to be now - physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. And what is unhealed from the past will continue to negatively influence your present until it is resolved. #5: THE ONLY WAY PAST YOUR PAIN IS THROUGH IT The simple truth is the only way past your pain and problems is going through them. For "what is forgotten, 'unknown' and unhealed is always more frightening than what is remembered, 'known', and healed." It is this fear that attaches the painful past to you like a magnet. Pushing through the fear, the problems, and the pain is what resolves them... avoiding them only increases their "magnetic" pull until they become so unbearable that they must be faced. Amazingly when the light of truth dispels the darkness of the unknown the problem is never as bad was feared. Time and time again when the fear is confronted, the person finds that they are in the place where they can handle the knowledge and resolve the issue. And when the pain is truly faced, it is then truly gone. #6: THE POINT OF THE PAIN IS TO FORCE YOU TO REMEMBER When we experience pain, we invariably ask the question of "WHY?" "Why am I having this pain?" "What is the point of it?" "When will it ever stop?" Although the precise answers to these questions will vary in each individual case, the general answers to these questions are always the same. [Example] "You are having the pain because you are forgetting, ignoring, or misunderstanding something very important that you need to remember about yourself." "The point of your pain is to get you to the place where you are ready to listen and accept this very important thing." "The pain will end when you finally do listen and accept this very important truth about yourself." #7: IF PAST LIFE PAIN RETURNS, YOU HAVE ATTRACTED IT Often just facing past life pain is sufficient to release it for good. If you really have let the pain of the past go it will not return to you. Yet sometimes an individual is so "invested" in their pain that it returns to them as inevitably as a boomerang. People can become invested in their pain for many reasons. Some like to be super heroes: "look at me, look at how well I overcome my adversity... when the going gets tough, the tough get going..." Others like to be martyrs: "poor little me, if only I did not have the cross of my pain to bear, what wouldn't I do..." A few are in it strictly for the narcissism: "I have real problems, my pain is the only thing that matters, focus on me, serve me, put up with me..." The truth is there are better things to be invested in than pain. Yet if you want to keep your pain, it will be happy to come back to you and stay with you for as long as you need and want it to. Healers can help you lay down
your pain but only you can let it go for good (see the Rules of Recovery for what it takes to get better). #8: THE PAST LIFE HEALING OF PHYSICAL PROBLEMS The healing of physical problems is the most popular use of past life healing because it gives people the most immediate and obvious results. Often they have a specific problem - most often chronic pain - that conventional medical treatments or other alternative healing cannot address. [Example] If the pain is "originating" in a past life, then it becomes very difficult to treat it using only present day means. Using past life healing for past life problems produces results that are often immediate and dramatic. The results are immediate in that the problem will cease altogether anywhere between the time the person makes a firm intention to keep their appointment to a month after the session is completed. The results are dramatic in that presenting symptoms decrease in a way that is noticeable to the client. These range from restoring full function to previously impaired parts of the body to the reduction in the severity of the original problem. The good news is that physical problems do not have to be a life sentence for those willing to look deep inside themselves to heal their pain. #9: THE PAST LIFE HEALING OF EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS Past life healing of emotional problems is particularly effective precisely because they force someone to look deep inside themselves for answers. To understand this, look at the word emotion. It comes from the phrase "Energy in Motion". Everyone's emotions originate inside themselves as energy seeking expression. This energy is sent by our Higher Selves for our learning and unfoldment as Soul and drives us to take action and make choices. Our choices then either "work off" or "make more" karma for ourselves. [Example] Past life healing gives us a unique opportunity to examine the karmic patterns which underlie these emotions. For once we see the emotional patterns that drive us we are free to transcend them and make different, more empowering choices. #10: THE PAST LIFE HEALING OF MENTAL PROBLEMS Closely linked to our emotional patterns are our mental ones: otherwise known as attitudes, beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors. Since these were formed through trial and error during the totality of all our experiences in many incarnations, they are often the most "treatable" by past life healing. [Example] For disempowering mental patterns that cannot be explained by our lives now are virtually certain to have arisen in one or more past lives. Most psychologists do not realize just how true their maxim - "that on the inside, every attitude, belief, thought, and behavior makes perfect sense" really is.
#11: THE PAST LIFE HEALING OF SPIRITUAL PROBLEMS Of all the past life problems out there, spiritual ones are often the most difficult to heal. This happens because as we all make our solitary journey back home to God, most people become firmly attached to one particular religious path. Spiritual problems arise when we are asked to step beyond a path that no longer is advancing our learning or our unfoldment as Soul. [Example] As we grow spiritually, we are like the mountain climber who sets out to scale the largest mountain he can see. The climber believes that once he has summited, he will have attained the greatest possible height. And yet when the climber gets to that summit, he sees that there is another whole range of mountains stretching on in the distance that are even higher and steeper than the one he has just conquered. And so it is with the spiritual life, there is always more. There is more because God has created an infinite universe. And because there is more, it means that certain past lives must be healed at deeper levels... and so the journey continues. #12: ON THE JOURNEY & DESTINATION OF PAST LIFE HEALING If the process of past life healing could be summed up in a single phrase, it would be this one. "Those who do not learn from the lessons of the past are condemned to repeat them." (Santayana) Our failure to learn the laws of life in the Universe, to grow in Soul awareness, to expand in our ability to Love is what propels us along the journey through the worlds of karma and reincarnation. Yet our experience - slowly but surely - does teach us the laws of life. As time goes by, we grow in awareness and we learn to love. We do this by "settling our accounts in true coin": by experiencing the "good" and the "bad" that we have done to others by allowing it to be done to ourselves. [Example] Past life healing has the power to show us that everything that happens to us now is the effect of a cause that we ourselves set in motion in the past. For only when we can accept total responsibility for all that happens to us now do we become free of the past. This freedom is the final destination of all our past life healing for it allows us to live fully in the only moment we ever have: NOW!
