615‐415‐9861 LavendarRose@comcast.net WeAreOneInSpirit.com
LavendarRose is available to speak to large or small groups that include medical symposiums, nursing schools, churches, clubs, organizations, parenting groups, and hospice volunteers, staff, and care givers. One‐hour lectures or one‐day workshops can be presented on the following topics: Death and Grieving There are some aspects of dying and death common to everyone regardless of background. These mainstream topics include hospice and palliative care, giving a dying patient permission to let go, the mind‐ body‐spirit connection, helping a patient and family accept impending death, unplugging a dying patient from life support, signs that the end of life is near, and comforting the grieving family. Those who are open to non‐ traditional thoughts will enjoy a presentation of the spiritual aspects surrounding death and dying, which include reincarnation, souls in the afterlife, assisting a soul in its release from the body, spirit communication during days/weeks after loved one dies, signs that a “deceased” loved one is trying to connect with a family member(s), protocol for interacting with spirits. Empathy Because we are all spiritually and mentally connected, many people—especially those who work in service‐ oriented professions—pick up on the suffering of others. Carrying this surrogate emotional burden puts undue stress on intuitive individuals who care for others in a time of illness, loss, or other disturbing situation. Learn how to use this empathic ability to send healing vibes and prayer without encountering an energetic backlash; set compassionate boundaries with those who tend to drain your energy; clear and protect the electromagnetic field that surrounds your body. Divine Oneness There are many spiritual paths that lead us “home” to our Creator. Regardless of what term you use to refer to this higher power or creative force, we share many similar beliefs and ideas. However, our choice of terminology may divide us and cause us to segregate into exclusive groups or denominations. Once we see how connected we really are and how we are all hoping to reach the same destination, we can accept our oneness with God/Goddess/Source and learn to coexist peacefully while respecting our different ways of expressing our spiritual nature. Psychic Children As the consciousness on Earth evolves to align with the Divine cosmic purpose, people are becoming more spiritually aware and attuned to what was once considered paranormal or supernatural. Part of this shift includes souls incarnating as children who have instinctive supernatural abilities and rely on their intuition to guide them. Our parenting model must change to accommodate these crystal kids, indigos, and “old souls” who are enlightened beyond their parents. Soul Exchange/Walkin Perhaps the result of a near‐death experience, surgery, or severe depression, people are reporting immediate and dramatic life transformations that can’t be explained. Someone you know may be a walk‐in! While some old souls incarnate as babies, many are walking into adult bodies through a swap in identity known as a soul exchange or walk‐in experience. The two souls literally swap places in order to continue soul development on different planes. The occurrence of walk‐ins/outs is not new, but soul exchanges are becoming more and more common as the Earth evolves spiritually. While soul exchanges are a significant part of spiritual growth, most walk‐ins do not know what has happened to them. They may feel confused, disoriented, and that close friends and family members seem like strangers. Onlookers may decide that the walk‐in is having a nervous or emotional breakdown due to the surge this energetic shift causes.

About Yvonne Perry a.k.a. LavendarRose
After recovering from years of religious addiction and a subservient relationship with organized religion, Yvonne Perry is finally free to be recognized as one who operates in both worlds—that of spirit and physical reality. Living life to the fullest in Nashville, Tennessee, Yvonne is an author, podcast host, blogger, and outstanding keynote speaker who enjoys helping people discover a spiritual path of love and joy that comes from the knowledge that we are all one with our Creator. For the first 40 years of her southern life Yvonne was enmeshed with the fundamental dogma of religion and lived according to the interpretation of the Bible that her family, society, and church leaders passed down to her. Before she had a label to put on her empathetic ability, the Georgia native called herself an intercessor carrying the burdens of others to the throne of grace. It was not uncommon for her to be locked away in her prayer room for half the day, singing, playing keyboards, writing worship songs, interceding, and laying in trance. While praying for others she empathically took on their suffering until it severely challenged her emotional and physical health. Four decades of operating as an untrained empath while trying to fit the mold of a male‐dominant, legalistic religion, which caused her to repress her true feelings, was met with an eye‐opening mid‐ life crisis. The changes she began making took a toll on her co‐dependent marriage, and after 22 years, divorce—a “non‐Christian” act she had vowed never to participate in—became a harsh reality. Losing everything familiar and comfortable, she found herself homeless. By then, she had serious doubts that God even existed and she questioned everything her religion had taught her. This was a good thing. She needed to heal not only from divorce, but also from religious addiction and this event—while it seemed horrible—was the catalyst for spiritual transformation. Realizing how much of her time and energy had been given to religious activities, she became extremely angry at the church for not accepting her prophetic gifts and refusing to help her through the worse time of her life. Things suddenly and totally changed when Yvonne's original soul left her body and a new soul walked in during a pre‐incarnation agreement known as a soul exchange. The new soul (LavendarRose) began releasing the karma and healing the emotional issues of the first soul. Embracing a totally different path and belief system, she now openly uses the psychic gifts the first soul brought in and fulfill her soul’s purpose to teach oneness with the Divine. A graduate of American Institute of Holistic Theology, Yvonne holds a Bachelor of Science in Metaphysics. Her style of writing lovingly nudges people’s beliefs in order to help them move past what she calls “Sunday School mentality.” She is the host of We Are One in Spirit Podcast, a show that offers people a chance to share spiritual insight and join cross‐cultural hands. During her five‐year involvement with Toastmasters International, Yvonne earned the recognition of Distinguished Toastmaster Award for her exemplary speaking skills. LavendarRose is a polished, motivational speaker available to share her knowledge on a wide variety of spiritual topics such as walk‐in/soul exchange, psychic gifts, empathy, ascension rituals, ghosts, afterlife, and near‐death or other spiritually‐transforming experiences.

The word “empath” may be a new term for some, but an ever-increasing number of people are reporting that they are sensitive to all types of energy, including that produced by other humans, the environment, electromagnetic frequencies, geophysical stress, and even non-physical beings. Being empathic simply means you are able to pick up on the energy of others—we can all do that to some degree—but some people are so sensitive to the emotional energy of others that it causes disturbances in their health and life. The confusion for empaths comes from not knowing when they are carrying or attached to someone else’s energy field. Those who do volunteer or victim protection work, police or detective work, or have compassionate service-oriented careers at hospitals, clinics, or hospice centers tend to deal with an overload of emotional energy from patients they tend to. There are some who rarely go into public because they feel overwhelmed by the energy they pick up. Many of them don’t know they are empaths, but they would love to learn how to stop the emotional and mental turmoil they encounter in a highly stimulating environment. Although it has not yet been studied and proven, some people seem to have unique variations in their central nervous system that cause them to be intensely affected by stimuli in their environment. They have an unusual sensitivity to light, smell, sound, taste, and touch, as well as extra-sensory perception (ESP) or what we might consider psychic abilities. Many of these highly-intuitive individuals know that something is not quite “normal” about their abilities since not everyone is adversely affected by going into public and not everyone picks up on the thoughts, feelings, or pain of those around them. In her national bestseller, The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You, author Elaine Aron states that as many as one out of every five people are highly-sensitive. And, no wonder! We live in an age when electronic information in the airwaves bombards us just about anywhere we go. We carry our cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices with us on a daily basis. Our energetic field is infiltrated with background noise. While most people are able to tune it out or turn it down, some people have a difficult time processing this vast amount of energy. As a result they may have anxiety attacks, feel overwhelmed, tired, depressed, angry, or drained much of the time. It is especially important for empaths to recognize their own energy and vibration, but many are not able to discern what their own energy feels like enough to know when it has roamed into someone’s territory or when it is being violated. If an empath does not understand what is happening he may think he is suffering from a physical illness or some form of mental distress or disorder. Psychology and psychiatry currently do not
recognize empaths or know how to treat them. While I am not a psychologist, I am an empath and this “gift” has both blessed and cursed my life. There are plenty of well-adjusted and fully-developed empaths including Dr. Caron B. Goode with whom I am writing a book, Whose Stuff Is This? Finding Freedom From the Thoughts, Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You. Developing intuition and empathic abilities is a journey of self-discovery that can awaken you to an entirely new understanding about life and what you currently believe about yourself. The more we embrace the fact that we are spiritually, mentally, and emotionally connected, the more responsible we must become in managing our personal energy. Everything we think, say, or do affects all of humanity and ultimately our planet. Let’s join together in a better understanding of this connection through developing the gift of empathy and intuition.

Dying, Death, & Grieving
More Than Meets the Eye: True Stories About Death, Dying, and Afterlife ISBN: 0-9753870-6-5 Price $13.99 US Publisher: Booksurge Pub date: 2005 Pages: 166 pages Genre: Spirituality/Metaphysics • Information about euthanasia, suicide, near-death experience, hospice care, assisting a dying loved one, spirit visits from deceased loved ones, and other topics people are somewhat reluctant to talk about. Non-religious information and insight to assist people in finding peace about the mysterious process of transitioning back to God/Source. Comfort for those who need answers to the questions we all ask while grieving the loss of a loved one. Your book makes it clear that you know how to provide comfort and help people not be afraid for loved ones who have passed. ~ Angela Grett, author of My Mother’s Bipolar, So What Am I?
LavendarRose is an author and keynote speaker who enjoys helping people discover a spiritual path of love and joy that comes from the knowledge that we are all one with our Creator. A graduate of American Institute of Holistic Theology, she holds a Bachelor of Science in Metaphysics.
Endorsements of More Than Meets the Eye My fear of death led me in search of reassurance, answers, and peace. This book gave it to me. The stories were told by every day people and by the author. I felt a great sense of relief and peace upon finishing the book. ~ Dale Morrison Pulaski, TN Simply an amazing book! Informative, easily understood, and absolutely real. It dispels the fear of death and soothingly shows that our souls never die; they just continue to evolve. Communications from loved ones who have passed on are beautifully illustrated. I couldn't put this book down. If you have questions, they will be answered. If you have doubts, keep an open mind and take the messages given in this marvelous compendium of channeled wisdom. Whatever you do, don't let this book get away. ~ Carl David Philadelphia, PA Vast knowledge about a range of topics including religious viewpoints, personal accounts, and extremely helpful tips for anyone who is dealing with a dying relative, hospice care, suicide, and euthanasia. I felt lighter just reading the book as if a healing was taking place. Yvonne Perry’s research is apparent as she weaves the information together with first-hand stories from others who have had experiences, and referencing other authors and experts. Honesty, truth, and comfort. This book can help many people during a difficult and transitional time. ~ Harriette Knight This gentle book offers comfort and insight about what happens when we die and what waits on the other side. Though well documented and researched, Yvonne's work is not a detached, scholarly report. She writes with passion and love, sharing her personal stories of near-death experience. Through intimate stories, she shares her own journey to understanding and offers comforting reassurance that our loved ones can and often do communicate with us. Yvonne is especially sensitive to those whose religious beliefs do not adequately answer all their questions, or whose experiences don't match what they've been taught. No matter what your current beliefs, everyone can benefit from this wonderful book of insight, comfort, and loving reassurance. ~ Linda Davenport Harrison, TN Readers who have found answers, but are still open to hearing about others' experiences will find much of interest in Yvonne Perry's collection of firsthand accounts. She writes movingly about her own near-death experiences and the spiritual journey that compelled her to study these subjects. No one religious ideology overlays the book. Rather, she shares views and experiences of many people, well-documented in her bibliography. A fascinating look at the rituals of death from a historical perspective—from early Egyptian practices to modern embalming in the U.S. after the Civil War. Particularly interesting and comforting were the true stories of near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, and spiritual visitation. Perry's honest, straight-forward style is not bogged down by a lot of jargon or diversions that wander from the subject at hand. Seekers will
appreciate this book and be glad for the time they've invested in hearing others' experiences with the greatest mystery on Earth. ~ Sheri Sinykin, Wisconsin This book offers something for everyone. Whether you are new to learning about near death experience (NDE) or have studied the phenomenon for years, this title holds a number of insights. Filled with multiple personal stories told from several points of view (including friends and relatives of the departed as well as those who've experienced an NDE), the stories are enlightening and comforting. Perry's book offers reassurance and comfort to those who've recently lost a loved one or are questioning their own existence. ~ M. Hinds This book spoke directly to some of the issues I was struggling with as well as areas of related interest. It is written in a manner that is easy to read without being condescending. I appreciated the stories but even more the information about burial options, living wills, and the commentary about how we handle death and the dead in our culture. I found the near-death experiences and stories about contacting loved ones on the other side particularly comforting because they come from the experiences of average people, not folks preaching an ideology or trying to make a buck. ~ Vonnie Faroqui Nashville, TN A thought-provoking book that provides comfort and enlightenment for those who are dying, grieving, or watching a loved one die. An excellent book for reaching beyond religious doctrine and embracing the great mystery of life and death. In addition to providing support for the idea that life continues after death, the book provides practical advice about death-related topics such as what is really involved in the embalming process and the importance of creating an Advanced Health Care Directive or Living Will. ~Laura Ramirez, author of Keepers of the Children: Native American Wisdom and Parenting, Reno, NV In More Than Meets the Eye, Yvonne Perry explains why death is not to be feared, why many of us do fear death, and ways to overcome our fears. Anyone who has lost a loved one or who has questions or uncertainties about death and dying will find the book helpful and informative. This book made me think about life and death in ways I never have before. ~ Kelli Glesige for Reader Views Hope and guidance for those who are preparing for a transition to the afterlife, and the caregivers and/or family members who know them. The book provides insights into the life/death cycle that motivates us to take advantage of the opportunities we have to know and experience more than meets the eye. ~Karen Pierce, SF Bay Area

Spirit Communication in the Elderly
Those who interact with the non-physical realm are sometimes considered insane or in need of psychiatric help. Unfortunately, many are shunned and ridiculed. Some are drugged. I've heard of children who were punished for talking about seeing deceased family members, angels, and ghosts. If you are one who provides care for those who are near the end of life, you may have noticed that elderly patients interact with deceased relatives and loved ones. Seeing, hearing, and communicating with the unseen realm is sometimes an indication that the transition toward the afterlife is beginning to occur. It gives a vague time line for determining how long a person may have before the soul departs from the body. But, what do you do when someone like my grandmother enters palliative care or hospice? Although she didn't talk much about it until she had her second near-death experience in 2008, Nanny has heard and seen in the spirit realm ever since her neardeath experience in 1952. Her third and fourth NDEs in 2009 really opened the airwaves! At age 94, it is a common occurrence for her to communicate with deceased loved ones and have spirit visitors that no one else can discern. Why do some people have this psychic ability while others don't? P. M. H. Atwater says that this intuitive ability is due to the development of the temporal lobes in the brain. From approximately age two through six, the temporal lobes take in and sort different forms, shapes, colors, and sounds so children can build neural libraries that let them know what is expected of them on earth. As this part of brain development nears completion, the child tends to interact less with the spirit realm and adheres to society norms. The elderly and those who have experienced near-death states, surgery requiring anesthesia, or some type of severe emotional trauma may find that this part of their brain has been reawakened. They may experience a transformation of consciousness that allows them to again see, hear, smell, and interact in other worlds. That is what happened to me after two NDEs and several surgeries.

Reviews for The Sid Series ~ A Collection of Holistic Stories for Children The Sid Series is a collection of twelve short stories for children written by Yvonne Perry. VonVon helps Sid by answering his questions. Each of the stories was written to help parents and children deal with issues children encounter in their lives. ~ Penny Lockwood Ehrenkranz, author Ghost for Rent I was quite impressed with The Sid Series. This is more than a series of cute little stories; it is a series of life lessons that every parent or grandparent can relate to on some level. A read-to-me series that your child or grandchild will ask for again and again. I highly recommend it. ~Dennis S. Martin, Baltimore, MD As parents we all know what it's like to see our children's imaginations run wild with creativity and curiosity. Sometimes they can amaze us and catch us off guard with their innocent, yet insightful questions. In The Sid Series we see how Sid used his imagination to make a potion for his dog's wounded leg, and it worked! He knew it would, more importantly he believed it would. He learns great thing about being himself and how to overcome being afraid. These are great lessons for all children and parents! A fantastic book to include in any library at home or school. ~ Amanda McCurley, Kingston Springs, TN These stories are great for young kids! They are fun and teach wonderful life lessons. Many show what a big adventure life can be and others teach what even young children can do to influence the world for good. One story, my personal favorite, shows how a young boy copes with the death of a beloved pet. Yvonne has a way of communicating deep concepts in ways young children can understand. ~ Jonathan John, California Author, Yvonne Perry, uses her experiences with her grandson Sid to write simple, easy-to-read stories with profound meaning for a child and parent who read together. Perry made a parent's job easy by addressing some hot issues that all parents face with their children at some point: seeing a ghost in the closet, why a best friend has a different skin color, how to choose a healthy food, how to welcome a new brother, why Mother Nature thunders, why we recycle, and how to find and play with fairies. I love the pages of different colors, and the bright illustrations are delightful eye candy. Perry's authentic storytelling emphasizes the use of imagination, reasoning, problem-solving, acceptance, hugs, and connection. ~Caron B. Goode, Inspired Parenting Coach The Sid Series deals with hard issues in a soft manner. Spiritual and sensitive Sidney learns to understand and value those things that make him and others special, to understand death without fear, to accept those who are different, to respect nature, earth, and human kind. The stories guide without preaching and educate without boring. Children, parents and teachers will enjoy reading this cuddle-up-together book! ~Rachelle Burk, author of Tree House in a Storm As someone who has spent over twenty years researching and advocating for the holistic care of children, I highly recommend this book! The Sid Series is an incredible tool for parents and those who work with and influence children. There is something magical about a story that stimulates a conversation that you may not have been able to have with your child. Yvonne writes from the heart with these lessons of love for both children and parents, assisting adults with their most important influence on a child, the nurturance of their spirit. Each story is an opportunity to provide insight and comfort to your child. There is no better way to bring wisdom to a parent than from real life experience, and Yvonne draws from a rich well full of luminous foresight. ~ Cathi Curen, Host of Holistic Children Radio
Yvonne's book really opened a pathway for my daughter and me. As a spiritually minded adult, I try to educate the children in my life with material I feel will foster their holistic growth and development. Yvonne's book is perfect for that! ~Alice Landry, Holistic Wellness Examiner The Sid Series is a delightful compilation of stories based on real life situations about the fears, emotions, feelings, and beliefs that children have in early childhood. This book teaches and encourages children by validating their experiences. ~ Gordon Randall (Nashville) Little Stories with Big Concepts. How do you help a young child explore the concept of inner guidance? How do you talk to your children about diversity, facing their fears, listening to their body's wisdom? Yvonne Perry has written a delightful series of children's stories that explore these topics and more. ~ Linda Davenport, Harrison, TN Inspired by her grandson, Sidney, Yvonne has woven her weekend visits with Sidney into charming tales. Those of us who enjoy talking with children can take a hint from the straightforward, simple, loving language "Von-Von" uses when talking with Sidney about concepts as difficult as the death of a loved pet or as potentially frightening as a monster in the closet. Sidney is an exceptional child with spiritual gifts, and Yvonne gently helps him embrace his gifts by using daily experiences to help him understand the power of his imagination, a gentle, age-appropriate introduction to magical concepts that sets the stage for more learning as he grows older. Those who are looking for stories to share with very young children, or parents, who would like ideas for how to talk with little ones about spiritual concepts without getting over their heads, will find The Sid Series to be just the ticket. The illustrations are charming and fun, the stories short, simple, and sweet. Don't let that fool you; these stories carry big concepts. There is a definite shortage of material for children that touches on these concepts. The Sid Series is a welcome breath of fresh air. Friendly, entertaining, and educational! Told in a comforting and spiritual manner, the stories reach out to young and old alike. Yvonne Perry’s interaction with the spirit world began as a child and has developed into a gift that blesses those seeking a better understanding of spiritual gifts. The art work engages children visually as they listen to the short stories and learn about life in terms they can understand. ~Lisa Haselton, Nashua, NH My son and I really enjoyed these stories. They cover a variety of real life topics that children deal with, and they validate what a child may be feeling or thinking in similar situations. I recommend this book to parents and kids! ~Wendy Lachmuth (PA) A book to help children through challenging issues in a gentle, kind, and spiritual way! From dealing with the death of a pet, learning inner guidance and understanding destiny and making choices (to name just a few) these stories are tender, beautiful lessons a parent or grandparent can share with the children in their lives. This book is truly a treasure to help every child see themselves as a gift, and help them grow into the person they were meant to be. ~Barbara Techel, Author of Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog Book Series The stories connect with the holiness inside the child to grow it into greater wholeness. The acceptance and affection embraced in these stories and illustrations are a joy to see. ~ Janet Riehl, St. Louis, MO In The Sid Series, Ms. Perry brings her book to life to give children a chance to express their own feelings and visions. An excellent addition to the library system, to be shared by parents and educators. ~Irene Brodsky, Faculty Member of Brooklyn College City University of New York

Does Your Child Have an Imaginary Friend?
If your child interacts with an invisible playmate, he or she is not alone or crazy. By the age of seven more than 60 percent of children have had at least one imaginary friend. Although not seen by grownups, the friend may be personified in a doll or stuffed animal. Some of these friends may reside constantly with your child while others simply drop by once in a while for a visit. Sometimes an imaginary friend gets blamed for things that the child did. For example, my son's imaginary friend named Peter got blamed for not picking up his wet towel and swimsuit after a visit to my mom's pool one summer. It was actually my son who didn't pick up his towel and swimsuit. Peter somehow missed getting in our car when we left Mom's that day. I must have said something to discourage my son because when I refused to go back and pick up Peter, my son never mentioned his friend again. If I had it to do over, I would have turned around and drove back to Mom's to get my son's friend. When he was about five years old, my son's son, Sidney, had sword battles with a group of playmates he called the Onks. Is the invisible playmate contrived in the child's mind or is having an imaginary friend a trait of a child who is interacting with the spirit realm? I'm inclined to believe that it is a sign that the child is in touch with his or her inner guidance. When I was a child I had a little yellow duck. My duck sat next to me at the table, took rides on my bike, listened to all my secrets, and went everywhere I went. I left the duck in my grandmother's lap when I was about five or six years old. I forgot about him until I was 40 years old. When I was going through a very difficult time in 1999, I dreamed of my little yellow duck. In the dream, my duck asked me if he could come back and I said yes. The next time I saw my grandmother I asked her if she still had my duck. I expected that she might have completely forgotten about him, but to my surprise she said, "Yes, I still have him. I've been waiting for you to come back to get him." I thought she was just playing along with me as she pretended to transfer him to me, but things in my life changed after that incident. I found that the voice of my internal guidance was turned up a notch. I began hearing wise and logical advice in my head that led me to make decisions that were remarkably healing for me. Looking back on my imaginary friend, I now realize that my yellow duck was one of my spirit guides. Some children speak in an unknown language with their imaginary friends. My stepgranddaughter had an Asian-sounding language that she used before she learned to speak English. She called me Ho-Ho, and while I wasn't sure whether she was equating me with Santa, I sensed that she and I had been together in a past life in which we shared this language.
It's fun to observe a child interacting with an imaginary friend. Listen to their conversations. They may be telling you something about themselves or working out a problem or stressful situation. Always encourage your child's developing imagination and never discount the possibility that your child may be receiving inner guidance that will serve him well all his life. If your child has an imaginary friend, there is no reason to be upset. Whether or not your child's playmate is a spirit guide, it is a natural and positive experience for your child to enjoy these invisible friendships. They give a child confidence when in a frightening or unfamiliar situation, such as the first day of kindergarten. Children try out different roles of authority with their imaginary friend and may become the teacher, mother, father, doctor, or zoo keeper!

Nashville Author and Speaker Shares the Life-altering Belief in Oneness As a Way to End Conflict Based on A Course in Miracles, a Nashville author has established a blog, Web site, and podcast to broadcast her message about the oneness of all souls with the Creator.
NASHVILLE, TN June 1, 2010 — Yvonne (McCurley) Perry was an intercessor for the City

“People must stop believing that they are depraved sinners,” says Perry, who also goes by the name of her higher self, LavendarRose. “As long as we see ourselves as separate from the Divine and one another, we will continue to harm one another and our planet, and we will engage in conflict whenever we perceive our values are being attacked. This is because we see ourselves and others as condemned and deserving of punishment. “People are more likely to listen to those they know and trust when it comes to spiritual guidance. Due to all the moral misconduct and power-hungry agendas of religious leaders, many people have become disillusioned with traditional churches. In the past few decades, people have been exposed to a variety of belief systems in our global culture and they are using common sense when it comes to formulating their personal belief system. As people continue to see truth in the message of inclusion taught by Carlton Pearson and the Emergent Conversation, people are leaving religion behind along with its dogma that was passed to them from their predecessors. Even those who have been “saved” and jumped through all the hoops supposedly required to appease an angry God are leaving the organization. They no longer believe in a God that has human attributes and sadistic characteristics. Humans treat their offspring better than this angry, God, which has been created in the image of man, treats his sons and daughters. “The old hyped-up way of promoting a religious belief with an in-your-face approach, has gone the way of the wind. No one wants another person force-feeding them the doctrine of separation that says those who do not agree with the teachings of the church are going to suffer and burn in hell. There’s no good news in that message and it is not the message of Christ.” A lot of people have been victims of this type of religious teaching. They’ve been brainwashed by a misinterpretation of the Bible that promotes hatred and states that God takes sides in battle and upholds the cause of Israel and the righteous. According to

most religious teachings, the modern-day righteous are those who believe the dogma of Judeo Christianity. This philosophy, lived out in the form of judgment toward self and others, is nothing like the peaceful and unifying message Jesus taught. Perry has experienced this type of rejection in many churches where she has tried to use her spiritual gifts of healing and prophecy. According to the Bible and the law of attraction presented in the movie, The Secret, whatever we think about comes about. If we believe we are worthless wretches in need of a bloody savior to rescue us, we will never do greater works than Jesus Christ did, which is one of the promises in the New Testament. There will be those who disagree with this “oneness” idea. Perceiving that they are being attacked, fundamentalists lash out against the teaching of oneness, much like they have against the gay community and stem cell research. The only solution to the age-old problem of ego, suffering, and fighting is to see ourselves as one with the Divine. Perry teaches oneness and love for all on her blog (http://WeAreOneInSpirit.com), Web site (http://WeAre1InSpirit.com), YouTube video (http://youtube.com/weareoneinspirit), and podcast shows archived on her blog and iTunes. Yvonne Perry is a graduate of American Institute of Holistic Theology where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Metaphysics. She is the author of seven books and 170 published articles. http://weareoneinspirit.com ### Contact: Yvonne Perry email@example.com http://weareoneinspirit.com 615-415-9861

Seeking to Save the Lost: Who ARE the Lost?
The lost, which Jesus came to seek and save, are those who have forgotten they are one with God and have chosen to live as though they (and others) are separate from this creative spirit essence in which we live, move, and have our being. This limited and fear-based mindset is what Bishop Pearson refers to as "exclusivity" or the "us and them" syndrome. We are in no way (other than through our faulty thinking) separate from the life force that created us. We are all divine. We are like a pieces of a hologram; individual parts of the whole, having the exact image or DNA of God/Source. The concept of oneness reveals how no one on this planet is lost or going to a literal place called heaven or hell. The only heaven or hell we will ever experience is that which we create in our minds through our beliefs. The religious, legalistic (neoconservatives, fundamentalists) folks who seek to either condemn or convert the lifestyle of others are the Pharisees that Jesus rebuked many times over in the Bible. These Pharisees—suicide bombers, right-wing evangelistic lobbyists, those who picket abortion clinics in the name of their god—are against anything and anyone that doesn't believe their doctrine or conform to their moral expectations. These religious people are still following man-made laws, dogma, and doctrine that preach doom and destruction rather than peace and acceptance—totally against the teaching of Jesus. These are the lost souls. Like all of us, they need only to be saved from their own ideology. If God is love, then why all the violence, wars, and resistance? That's no way to reconnect with God. It only reinforces the sad lie that humankind is somehow separate from our creative source. When the light (illumination, Christ consciousness) comes, darkness (cloudy, separatist thinking) will fade away. Therefore, I send love and light to all "lost" souls who, according to their own human image, have made god out to be a punishing deity and have forgotten that they were made in the image of the great light. We are spirit having a human experience. We are one in spirit.
