Deflection is Better than Defense

Fighting back or direct resistance only leads to more harm, using love, deflection is better than resistance because it decreases the damage to you while your opponent continues to fight in force until they become disinterested in the battle or have exhausted their resources.

In a battle, you can never have enough weapons to combat a formidable foe. A fight between two individuals fighting against each other always results in a great deal of pain and suffering, which may include broken bones and spilled blood. So, the smart thing to do is not to fight back in defense of yourself.

This applies to physical confrontation, as well as psychological confrontation, or response to any attack from any type or style of attacker.

In the olden days, an actor was cast in a TV show based on a Shaolin monk facing all kinds of attacks responding in Kung Fu fashion, which is primarily deflection of physical attack, using the opponent’s power of force against themselves. The actor was David Carradine, who didn’t know anything about Kung Fu at the time but playing the part in the Kung Fu TV show so inspired him that he did become an avid student and teacher of Tai Chi and Qigong.

Having been exposed to this television show did influence me and my response to fighting of any kind. Therefore, I have little respect for an all-out fistfight, am inclined to avoid a brute force battle, and prefer to be the one who walks away from any confrontation in as pristine condition as possible.

I have not been able to avoid physical confrontation, but I have survived these encounters with as little damage to myself by following these principles.

1. Do not respond
2. Do not defend
3. Apply love
4. Avoid blows
5. Deflect blows when necessary
6. Do not counterattack
7. Use the opponent’s power against them

Then, walk away unscathed.

I am not trying to convince anyone to follow these principles, I am just expressing that this is what I do, whether it is a physical altercation or any other type of potential battle.

When I was attacked by a prolific psychopath, I documented everything and applied these principles.

I remained steadfast and simply ignored everything the psychopath tried to say about me or do to me, and applied love’s perspective to the man who was attacking me. I wondered why someone might end up being like that? What kind of a life must he have lived? What must he have suffered as a young child? I tried to imagine what it must be like to walk a mile in his shoes. I sent him love, hoping he might be able to find a way to a better life.

Most would have lost interest and found some other mark to pursue, but this one made a lifetime vow with the commitment of all his resources, and those of others, to destroy me.

In this particular circumstance, the psychopath (because he could not be satisfied by my response), took the battle to the media and my circle of influence.

Still not wanting to fight back, I had no choice but to engage, because the psycho had started attacking my friends, and family. Attack me, fine, but to go after my children (who are sacred to me) requires my protection of them.

Attempting to keep my wits about me, I did respond to the psychopath with deflection and using the psycho’s own power of force against himself.

Fortunately for me, the psychopath left threatening messages on my answering machine. I posted them on YouTube. Now, he had a venue where he could spin all his efforts against me, and I empowered him to do so.

Did I care? No. I am impenetrable. Anything he says about me is not true, and I don’t care, nor do I respond to any ridiculous accusations.

Now, I did get a flood of attention from friends and family who feared for me, especially those who the psycho was able to make fearful in his attacks on them because of my not responding. I just told them not to worry, and apologized for any overflow which had affected their lives, but told them that I was attempting to protect them by placing his focus back on me.

Without directly engaging or defending, I just posted everything he threw at me online, and let it be.

In the process, I was able to help countless other potential victims see the psychopath (a lifetime criminal con man) for who he was prior to losing their life’s savings and suffering continued abuse by the psychopath by finding some of this information online.

He was forced to change his identity and possibly even fake his own death in order to continue his life of crimes in the exploitation of others.

I apply this to any confrontation by anyone, even if someone were to say in an interview (in this fictitious example), “According to,” (some source that was leaked by the psychopath), “you kill babies and bury them in your backyard. What do you have to say about that?”

My only response would be, “It is my personal policy not to respond to any false accusation. Next?”

When what I wanted to do is to counter-attack, like ask the interviewer, “What about your collection of clown noses and pickled small toes of circus performers who have mysteriously disappeared? What about those?”

It is your sacred right not to respond to a false accusation, not to even dignify it with any response. Regardless of your good intentions, and the inclination to defend yourself and your good name, any response can be used as a weapon against you, or to fuel the fire of further attack.

In this way, deflection is better than defense.

Next.

Awakening and Enlightenment

At a recent event, someone asked me what is awakening and enlightenment. I can understand the confusion because therapists, the spiritually inclined, and lightworkers from all walks of life use the words “awakening” and “enlightenment” in a variety of different ways. So, when I respond to a question, like this, be aware that my response will only represent my understanding of any given thing in this moment in time.

Any definition of anything is an attempt to cement an idea in time and space, and this is a psychological fantasy because our world, our universe, is not stagnant. Nothing remains the same. Everything is in the process of growing, expanding, and evolving, but having these definitions and understandings can help us navigate the landscape as we make our way through the 3D terrain.

That said, in my practice, I work with people at many stages of their lives, whether they are working their way through the 7 Phases of Personal Growth, or the 7 Phases of Spiritual Growth. In the work that I do, I see Awakening as that first transitionary step between living one’s life from a personal perspective to living life spiritually, beyond physicality.

Life is more accurately a continuum and it’s like an ever-morphing liquid. Delineation of lines is difficult at best, but for those who work with individuals who are progressing through this continuum, it can be very helpful for us to quickly evaluate where someone is at, so that we can help them progress further in the most effective manner.

Certainly, there are many kinds of awakening that occur throughout an individual’s life, and I do not discount anyone’s use of the vernacular in any manner. I refer only to my now work, which is subject to change at any moment.

Awakening, while it may occur in brief clips throughout one’s disillusionment, is predominantly expressed as that moment in time (which can be a prolonged experience) where your eyes are opened to the world as it is, not as you’ve been led to believe. You begin to understand that things are not as they appear, and that there is a system in place to keep this knowledge from getting out.

During the process of awakening your thoughts systems are challenged, and since you’ve been programmed for judgment, fear and punishment, right and wrong, good and bad, sacred and evil, just and unjust, forgiveness and revenge, you utilize these very thought systems in an attempt to make sense of it all.

In this phase you are breaking free from the mass consciousness, having independent thought and playing in the unlimited field of endless possibilities, while exercising your sacred divinity. This is a mind-blowing experience, which could feel like a psychotic episode, at first. For after all, how could it be possible that the whole world is living a lie?

As you awaken, you start to live your life in a way that honors the world in a different way, Even if you’re initially feeling more separate from the rest of the world at this time, you have an understanding that you are actually a part of the people soup. You are a growing, expanding, evolving component of the whole, and your continued evolution plays an integral part in the evolution of mass consciousness, as more and more of us continue to awaken.

This leads you on a new path in which heads in the direction of enlightenment.

Just as “Awakening” has many definitions and facets, so does “Enlightenment,” as there are so many perceptions and uses of it throughout our society, culture, and among those who are expanding in consciousness.

In my work, I see enlightenment as the gateway between Phase 3 (Master) and Phase 4 (Cosmic Consciousness) among the 7 Phases of Spiritual Growth. This is when the individual begins to shed one’s individuality, which to me represents the part of one’s journey beyond the confinements of this third dimension.

Enlightenment is a progression following awakening. You are just trying to make your way in a new world full of chaos and love which was unrecognizable prior to your awakening and enlightenment is the process of letting go of the bondage of your humanity, while embracing all of your divine human attributes and abilities, without judgment.

Enlightenment is a negative-energy-free-zone. Enlightened people have a higher perspective and understanding, do not see any separation in people or anything in the world or the universe, yet can fully appreciate the divinity in each individual expression, experience, or perspective.

From the vantage point of enlightenment, everything is good and plays a sacred part in everything getting better all the time, no matter what it looks like on the surface.

When fully enlightened, there is no drama, no judgment, no separation, only peace, and harmony, even in the face of chaos. For the chaos is divine in itself, for the sacred transformation or evolution may not be possible without clear demarcation between a prior state and the state following growth, expansion, or evolution, and this process can be abrupt, shocking, and painful.

Admittedly, any recognition of spiritual exposure or interaction at any time in anyone’s life, whether amidst the personal or spiritual growth process, would also qualify as being exposed to, or engulfed in, the light of the higher presence, which is also referred to enlightenment, if it is recognized as such.

Awakening and enlightenment are not states of consciousness that you just step into. They are processes that take time to progress through.

This Relationship’s Going Nowhere I’m Out

“I am just not feeling it. My husband and I, it’s like we’re from two different planets. I just can’t live in a relationship that’s going nowhere. Can’t do it. I’m out.”

From that to,

“I was in a loveless relationship with my husband and ready to cash-out when I realized that he was my soul mate and now we share the deepest and romantic relationship together forever.”

If you find yourself in a difficult relationship (this applies to all relationships, not just those of the romantic persuasion) you could just bail out when it doesn’t seem to suit your needs (no one would blame you, this is your right) or you might consider, as some have, calling on the power of the universe to have your back.

Those who do, often experience dramatic changes within a year. So, be aware this is not normally instantaneous change. Change, evolution, real change takes time. If you’re interested in giving it a go, consider adopting some of the basic principles that can get you miraculously from where you are now to where you’d love to be with very little effort (though effort is required).

As much as it seems like it’s all about how incompatible this person seems to be in the moment, you might be surprised that this process starts with you. Yes, you.

You have been raised and trained to accept what’s been put on your plate and to expect nothing more. You’ve been programmed for mediocrity and “settling” for less than your highest and best, when that is not what you came here for.

You came here to have it all, and this is your birthright. It’s time you decided to take back your divinity as a child of God and reclaim your sacred life, now.

And it starts with you, getting to know and love you, the true authentic you, with all the blessings that have been bestowed upon you in this life. Even if it looks lackluster, and may have been incredibly painful, causing you to accept anything less than your best life, but has brought you to this moment in time. And the you who you’ve become and as transforming into through this magnificent evolutionary process is nothing less than magnificent.

If you’ve quashed and squelched your special purpose, skills, abilities, and unique message, the universe has caused you to experience life which would further prepare you for this moment, the moment of awakening to your unlimited potential.

Now is the time to start to embrace your divinity and find ways to express who you are through the words you speak and the deeds you do. By activating your 7 points of evolving expansion, you can raise your vibration to love and above.

You must get to know who you really are and love everything that you are and can be in this life and beyond, all of it, even the stuff you thought was not good (and no one was saying it wasn’t bad) but it helped to bring you to who and what you are today, and will magnify your future potential.

Don’t wait for anyone to validate or love you. You are the love of your life. Love yourself deeply, now, more than ever, every day more and more. As you find ways to fill your heart with love, this overflowing love can spill over to the others you care deeply about, your family, your community, and the world at large. Any other form of giving love is really servitude and generosity, if your heart is not full and overflowing with love. (And there’s nothing wrong with that. We need all the love we can get.)

So fill your loving cup by learning to love who you are, accepting and embracing the life that has brought you to this point in time, find ways to fill your heart with love, and take full responsibility for looking after yourself and seeing that your needs are tended to.

When your loving cup is full, then you can truly spread the love that overflows to others.

Sometimes you encounter situations and circumstances that rub you the wrong way. Find ways to take another look at the scenario, from an alternate perspective, keeping in mind that your desire is to raise your vibration to love and above, and maintain this higher frequency.

With any circumstance, there is a full spectrum of responses you can initiate in response to the situation or thought. On one end, you can stand and fight because you’re justifiably “pissed off,” and on the other end of the spectrum, you can choose to apply love and see the event from God’s perspective.

Often perception interpretation can lead to misunderstanding, and no one would blame you for going there. After all, you’ve endured many life experiences that have caused you to reach conclusions rapidly as a form of self-defense. Thankfully, this skill has gotten you this far.

If a person’s words or actions have set off your inner alarms, instead of jumping to conclusions, try jumping into the other person’s perspective. Why would he or she say or do such a thing? What life traumas might be underneath it all? Can you find compassion for someone who might act or react in such a way? Put yourself in the other person’s shoes. What does that feel like?

And if that weren’t enough, look at it from God’s perspective. I could be with a completely indiscriminate person that I do not get, at all, but if I were to ask for God’s opinion, God would say, “I love him” (or her). Could I then, by seeing through the eyes of love, see those redeeming qualities that God sees?

Yeah, I might not agree with them, but they do have that God-loves-‘em-so-much quality about them. Who am I to judge? A little tolerance goes a long way. Try asking yourself What are People Like Who are Tolerant?

The quicker you are to change the way you think about a negative thought and turn it into a loving thought, your love quotient remains at the high level you are practicing to regulate. As with anything, the more often you do it, the easier it gets.

As you start to turnaround how you think about things, the whole world starts to turnaround, adjusting to your new perspective, but you must shift your point of view, first.

Raising your vibration makes you start to expect more positive responses and good things to happen to you, and they do.

If your attention is focused upon this person who you might like to be a better match for you but is not in the moment, no problem. You respect the fact that we’re all doing the best we can, and this is a beautiful child of God you’re looking at, regardless of how off-base or weird he or she may appear right now.

You can be proactive by giving him or her a chance to respond in a manner which is more befitting of your new higher vibration. You may go through an entire scenario and have it come up leaving you feeling unconnected and empty inside. By all means, do not just walk away in silence. This is the new you, with your full awakened presence intact. Give him or her another chance.

Speak up. Let him or her know that you thought this could have gone better. Try reframing the situation and all the two of you to give it another go, to see if you can come up with a more favorable outcome. If this is practiced in love, with a pure heart, the outcome will be more to your liking. Maybe not to meet your fullest expectation, but look how closer you are to having the synchronicity you desire. Good job.

As you do this, the person you’re practicing with begins to anticipate this as opportunities arise and he or she rises to meet your positive loving expectation. You expect more, receive more of what you want in connection, and love grows.

Love is all there really is  …

Psychic Attack Protection

Being under psychic attack means so many things to so many people. Nonetheless, you need psychic attack protection. When you’re under psychic attack, you know your thoughts and how you are feeling is not right. The way you think, and feel is not congruent with who you really are.

You could undoubtedly say that your thoughts are not your own as you are hearing or feeling ideas which are contrary to what you know to be true, feeling body system responses that do not represent your actual physical state of wellness, and you may even have suicidal ideation.

Psychiatry can provide you with a prescription medication following a psychiatric evaluation which will prevent the thoughts and feelings of being under psychic attack and this can be hugely beneficial. Be aware, though, this is likely only to address the symptoms, not the underlying cause of your psychic attack.

Our thoughts are the most intimate thing we have and losing control of them can lead one to lose the sense of one’s self. It’s no wonder that they considered you as being possessed by demons when under psychic attack in the middle ages.

Psychic attack symptoms can appear to be similar to psychological and physiological expressions of mental illness, as the observable signs of psychic attack can easily be misread, though treatment for mental illnesses associated with these symptoms can offer relief for the victim.

Empaths and psychic attacks are more commonly matched due to the highly sensitive nature of the empath. So be aware that your empathetic nature or psychic sensitivities may leave you vulnerable to such energetic onslaughts.

Even though there are such a wide variety of types of psychic attacks, noting that professional help should be sought out if your concerns are indeed troublesome, here are a few steps you can take for psychic attack protection and/or tools you can use to interrupt any style of psychic attack.

Immediately conduct housecleaning on your thought processes. Stop taking in any negative information, find a safe place to fill your mind with positive, loving, or enjoyable thoughts. If you can, put on headphones and watch your favorite comedy and fill your mind with fun and laughter. Watch a good movie, or read a really good book. Push out any negative thoughts with positive ones. Use headphones or earbuds to plug into uplifting music which you control (no negative music) and dance.

Find something small to eat and drink (no alcoholic beverages). Stimulating your mind to reconnect to your body to focus on local operations, instead of the attack coming from without, and move about. Take a walk, or exercise if you can. Reunite yourself with yourself.

Light disrupts a psychic attack. If your psychic attack takes place during the daytime, find some sunlight and stand in it. If it is nighttime, turn on the lights, turn on all the lights. Bathe yourself in light, illuminating yourself and eliminating the shadows in the 3-D, beyond, and figurative shadows of your mind and body.

Pray to God, your higher self, seek connection with source, meditate, visualize yourself as an integral part of the universe, connect with Mother Earth, whatever type of spiritual connection you can make, do that, focusing your thoughts on those things that are good, remaining in a spiritual vibration of love and gratitude. (Do not pray for anything negative, as that will come back to haunt you as another psychic attack.)

Speaking of gratitude, start a gratitude journal, and when you’re feeling an attack coming in, whip it out and start jotting down all the things you are grateful for, taking the time to visualize yourself in the full state of being in the moment of gratitude as you make your notation(s).

If you are being haunted by thoughts of the past or fear of the future, stop and get into the now. Put all your attention on events only taking place at this very moment in time. Nothing else.

Go window shopping in your favorite stores, thumb through catalogs, cut out pictures of the stuff that makes you happy, browse online stores, and save links to those things you find that surprise and delight you, taking caution to stay away from venues which may host negatively-charged media or advertising (i.e., no scrolling through Facebook or other social media).

Create opportunities to conduct acts of kindness. Reach out to a stranger and do something nice for him or her. Reach out to someone you know that you’ve not been in contact for a while, someone you love and respect. Write them a letter, email, or send them a card, letting them know how much you appreciate them and their presence in your life as it is honored and felt even in their absence.

Do something good, make a contribution to the world, even if only in some small way. Volunteer at a soup kitchen, or make a small donation to a worthy cause. In doing so, you are making the world a better place.

And by all means, smile.

Smile because you are loved, you are love, and with every breath you take, everything is getting better.

Of course, there are other detailed actions you can take and processes you can initiate for psychic attack protection which are situation-specific, but in general, these will help in the meantime.

 

 

 

 

Now is the Time for You

Ever feel like you have little or no say in how your life goes? Most people believe that dreaming about having a better life is for children, like believing in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy. Now is the time for you, even after you’ve grown up and matured, given up on your dreams because you came to believe they were not real or possible, they were only fantasies, wishful thinking, and energy wasted on false hope.

There are many contributing factors to you’re believing that there is no possible bright future waiting for you that have been in play throughout your whole life.

In the moment you were born, you were so excited to have the opportunity to play out your role as a sacred blessing and contributing to the world. Not long after that first breath, though, you began your struggle to fight, trying to hold on to your divinity, while family circumstances, caretakers, friends, teachers, celebrities, society, and “the system,” eroded your true being to devolve into a manageable member of the human-machine.

If you were not born into a family with massive financial resources, were the recipient of a great inheritance, won the lottery, or some other unexpected windfall was bestowed upon you, you simply resigned yourself for settling for survival, just getting by, making the best of what you have, or some other form of mediocrity. All the while, denying your own sense of royal divinity.

It’s true that our society makes considerations for those who have all the marbles, while the rest of us are expected to fall in line as the worker bees in soulless servitude of the queen bee (representing those who control the world’s resources and therefore usurp control over all its inhabitants).

If you have encountered drama and trauma along your journey, be not dismayed, this has imbued you with knowledge and insight which is critical to your metamorphosis. Now is the time to embrace who you are, all of you, if you have any intention of allowing yourself to evolve into the divine being you were born to be.

Breaking through the thick layer of programming which has led you to where you are today takes an incredible amount of will, strength, and fortitude to see to its annihilation. Now is the time for you to embrace your challenges in life as your training ground, preparing you for this event if you choose to allow your evolution to continue.

It’s easy to get discouraged, especially if you’re stuck working in a dead-end job just to make the ends meet with little or no sense of pride or satisfaction, numb to the fact that all your efforts are put forth for the benefit of someone else, while you garner your meager wage which you must manage carefully to survive. One wrong move, and you’re done.

Oh, but you could work hard every day to take it easy when get your Social Security benefits, which they are raising the age requirements for, because… well, you’re expected to live to be 78 years old. They want to pay you as little as they can between the time you retire and the time you die, so they raise the age from 65 to 67 (that’s 11 years), or 70 (8 years of benefits) if you want a little bit more per month. And good luck trying to make a living on what they give you.

Those of us who are best prepared for retirement, have our own 401(k) and we can (some of us more than likely more than) double our retirement take home which may enable you to eek by, in the same manner you’d been accustomed to in your working years, but more likely than not, you will find yourself having to continue to work to subsidize your retirement income.

That is, unless you change your life, and now is the time for you to start by allowing your mind to go to those forbidden places, your dreams, and desires. Rekindle the flame of your imagination with little a little action here and there, and ready yourself for a new outlook on life, and the life which was your birthright can begin to unfold for you.

This is why I, along with others, are vowing to Never Retire. I feel as though my best years are yet to come, and I have a great deal of contribution ahead, continuing to empower others to achieve their highest and best and make the world a better place.

I have had the privilege of being with people in their final hours, and the biggest regret most of them have is all the (endless) regret for not doing more and/or pursuing their dreams. Many people feel as though if they haven’t pulled the trigger on their dreams before they’ve progressed in age, that it’s too late. Let me tell you, it’s never too late because Dreams Can Come True in Your Golden Years. (Be sure to tell your parents and/or grandparents that they still have time.)

Or you might be thinking, My Life Has Been So Awful that nothing good could come from it. Not so. If it weren’t for all that drama and trauma, you would not be so perfectly qualified to succeed because no one, no matter how much school they’ve attended could possibly have the knowledge that you have from having experienced your life’s events on the front lines. No one.

You have a particular Purpose, Message, Passion, and Mission (PMPM) in life crying out for expression, and you have all the tools necessary to bring this to full fruition. Now is the time for you and anything that you need will be provided to you, providing you step out in faith allowing your life to expand and unfold in all its glory.

Using the power of your imagination, imagine you have all the money to do whatever you wanted to do without having to work a day for anyone else. What would you most love to do? What activities in life would bring you satisfaction and joy? What would you do for fun?

The answers to these questions are clues leading to “the real you” who is waiting to emerge. Start finding ways to engage in these activities in any way that you can, now. If you can’t actually do those things, then spend time reading about them, playing games around them, writing out stories about what you will do when you can, and start making plans to actually do them. Feeding the flames of your passion(s) in these ways will bring the desires of your heart closer to you.

And if you’re finding yourself working for a living, find a way to do those things that you love, that provide you with a sense of satisfaction and purpose, and allow compensation to flow to you from the doing of the things you love to do. Blessings await those who are bold enough to pursue their dreams without giving up.

You don’t need an inheritance or to win the lottery, Now is the time for you to break through the heavy layers of social programming, freeing yourself enough to start doing the things you love to do, allowing your evolution to take place, and reach for more.

Toxic Family for the Holidays

Okay, let’s say you’ve got family and there is the expectation that you will attend the family holiday event, but you know that there are some people in your family that run you the wrong way, and you’re pretty sure there’s a good possibility that one’s a genuine psychopath.

I mean, you’ve googled it, and you know what you’re talking about, but you still have to go to this holiday affair and you know these toxic individuals are going to be there.

What can you do?

Whether your toxic family member is a psychopath, sociopath, narcissist, or somewhere along the antisocial personality disorder spectrum, ask yourself, what do you think their number one goal is?

Regardless of what you think it might be, from now on, take on the assumptive idea that the only thing this person wants to do at this event, is to get to you. To get you riled up, to have an emotional response, and Dear God, if he or she can have you express yourself inappropriately, THAT is the Holy Grail!

Rendered down to its simplest form, this toxic person wants to knock you off balance.

What do you think would be the one thing you could do that would make him or her disappointed or angry?

To be unshakeable. Bulletproof. Strong as a solid rock.

If you’re up for it, you can do just that. Be that unshakeable, bulletproof person who’s solid as a rock, and leave him or her to run off and lick his or her own wounds. Because, if you can pull this off, you win! Ha!

Now, you know this person is a whacko, and you also know that any calling out of such a thing will end up with him or her making you look like a whacko. So, no confrontations, accusations, or defense. None. Just you, doing your part to participate in this event without letting any toxic individual get to you.

It will help to understand that these individuals are only playing a game of “let’s screw with that person” without consequence. While a normal person might feel guilty for gaslighting someone for no reason, toxic people do it for fun and pleasure, and the more emotionally you respond, the better he or she feels about victimizing you.

Once you realize this, you can turn the tables in your favor by not providing him or her with the supply he/she expects to get from you. Now, you are in the driver’s seat.

It can be helpful for you to surround yourself with an invisible bubble of energy which will act as an emotional shield that will prevent any negative energy from this individual to get in.

When something comes up that may have caught you off-guard in the past, just ignore it. Shrug your shoulders and walk away. Start a conversation with someone else. Whatever you do, do not let them see you sweat. Any sign of weakness and they will turn up the heat to make you look crazy.

Be polite and cordial, but do not get involved in lengthy conversations. Keep it brief and keep moving on to the next conversation with someone else.

Imagine having brought some yellow crime scene tape that you can use to cordon off areas of your life that you don’t want to have to deal with. This is your life. You get to set your boundaries. You got this.

They don’t get you this year. Not this one.

You got this.

Sending Love to the World Meditation

Sending love to the world raises the love vibration of those who are lonely, whose bodies and hearts are hurting. Maybe it doesn’t heal them. Maybe it doesn’t drastically change their lives, but it does help to take the edge off, maybe enough to make it one more day.

And maybe that day is the day when their life starts to take a turn for the better. They might not have gotten that extra day if it wasn’t for someone sending love to the world.

So, I’d like to recruit you, right now, to join me in sending love to the world this year.

You can join us this holiday season and make a difference by sending love to the world and make the world a better place in just a few minutes throughout the holidays. It’s free, and your love could help save the life of someone in need. Start a new tradition, help spread the word and send love to the world this holiday season.

To prepare for this exercise sit in a comfortable upright position. One caveat; please do not attempt this exercise while you’re driving if you are driving. Wait until you have stopped your vehicle in a safe place where you can spend a few minutes in private participation without interruption.

 

Rest your arms on your thighs with your hands palm up take a deep breath and as you exhale, relax breathe in… and breathe out…

Close your eyes and place your hand over your heart feel the vibration… and visualize… see with your mind’s eye the area of your heart as it begins to glow with light. Breathe in… as you inhale imagine the unconditional love filled oxygen going deep inside the area of your heart

As you exhale see or feel your breath leaving the area of your heart

During this exercise imagine and feel every breath coming into and out of the area of your heart.

With every breath you take, the glow from the energy from within your heart increases.

Now, imagine a stream of white light from above beaming down through the top of your head and filling your heart with unconditional love.

Breathe in…

With every breath that you take the love light from within your heart burns brighter.

You can feel the love growing within the area of your heart.

Breathe out…

Breathe in…

As you take another breath the love energy expands sending love light throughout every cell of your body.

You feel this love growing even more.

Breathe out…

Connected to you physically and emotionally, all your family friends and associates. We are going to send love to all these people who are connected to you in your life.

This time as we exhale, we blow out a gentle love breeze that will find its way into the hearts of each of these people that you are connected to.

Deep breath in…

As the light grows ever so much brighter, ready to blow out this gentle breeze of love…

Breathe out…

As that love is making its way to all the people in your life…

Imagine your awareness rising outside of yourself through the roof, high enough that you can see where you are, and where all the people who are nearby, from an aerial view.

Breathe in…

Now, we’re going to send love to all those around you, and as you

breathe in

the love energy increases even more.

We need to blow out this gentle breeze of love

Breathe out…

That love is seeking out all your neighbors. This love is unconditional. It does not judge or prequalify. It seeks out every heart and wraps it in warm, heartfelt love.

Now raise your awareness again, so now you can see your local community as we prepare to send love to them.

Breathe in…

And as the love light and energy grows even more powerful…

Preparing to send out your love breath

Breathe out…

Love is seeking out all the hearts in your community, those who are already filled with love are feeling even more on love, and those who feel as though there is no love for them, they’re feeling the effects of the love that you are sending.

Raise your awareness even more to include your entire city or town.

Imagining the aerial view of the entire area…

Breathe in love…

Beaming so brightly from the area of your heart and glowing, casting light on the land below.

Breathe out…

And as you exhale, imagine in your mind’s eye, your breath being purposefully and precisely delivered to every man woman and child in your geographic area.

Raise your awareness once again, so now you can visualize the whole state or province where you live, as we prepare to send love to the people below.

Breathe in…

The love vibration increasing even more as you exhale send unconditional love and light to all the peoples below without regard to who they are, their social status, or any other judgment. This unconditional love is for them all.

Breathe out…

Raising your awareness even more you can visualize in your mind’s eye the entire area encompassing the entire country.
Big inward breath into the area of your heart…

Prepare to send this unconditional love to all the people in the entire country.

Breathe out…

Love is seeking out even the most hardened hearts, making them a little more tender than they were just moments ago. People are feeling the effects of the love you are sending.

Now raise your awareness once again past the satellites, so that you can see the entire planet.

Breathe in…

Then as we prepare to send unconditional love to the whole world,

Breathe out…

Letting a wave of love work its way into the hearts of all Earth’s inhabitants, creatures, and the earth itself…

Now, imagine yourself quickly but safely descending… returning to your world… your country… your state or province… your town… your home… and your body.

What an exhilarating effort as you feel the effects of having been an effective love conduit for the greater good.
This love energy has permeated every molecule of your body, and you feel good.

Many people actually experience physiological healing from this exercise and you know this to be true.

Bask in this feeling. You will experience the effects of this exercise for a period of six hours.

Feel free to do this as often as you like.

Give yourself a big hug because you have loved, you are loved, and you are love.

loved, loved, love… you.

 

Holiday Family Blessing or Curse?

Then, there’s your family.

The holiday ideal starts off with the reverent honoring of those who have given a portion of their lives (all gave some, some gave all) on Veterans Day which falls on November 11th in the USA. Then either the most anticipated or dreaded family get-together comes along as the Thanksgiving celebration. It is generally at this time of year that families which have been separated throughout the year, get together.

This “celebration” could be either amazing or horribly grueling depending on the nature and dynamics of your family’s cohesion, strength, and honor.

Let’s face it, all families are dysfunctional, so just let that expectation go. It’s a fantasy if you expect anything else, and to do so sets you up for discouragement every time. So, if your family’s a little whacko. So what? Let it go and learn to enjoy, even love, your family’s diversity.

But some families are so terribly broken, that there is very little thread of familial connection, and family members have suffered greatly in what should have been the tender, caring hands or the family, but suffered tragic drama and trauma instead.

What about those who have no family? Maybe, everyone they know in their family has passed away, and they are here, all alone at this moment which represents the coming together of family. No one would blame that person for feeling a bit down, lonely, or depressed, while everyone else is celebrating.

Or maybe their family is alive but separated by too many miles, or even worse miles of bad roads traveled in life. Family members can suffer so incredibly these days, and the effects of a traumatic childhood can be life-long, and even end the lives of the suffering children prematurely through expression as physical illness, disease, or suicide.

If you haven’t suffered tragically under the watch of your parents or were left to fend for yourself in any way possible as a young child, you have no idea of how bad it could be.

How bad is it? Well, consider this: The fastest-growing age group of suicides committed every day is that of 10- to 14-year-old children. So, you tell me, “How is this affecting our kids?”

And if Thanksgiving wasn’t bad enough, what about the looming mother of all familial holidays?

Of course, I’m referring to Christmas, that joyous time of year when families get together and bond. What about that? What if you’re a single parent, or even a couple, struggling financially to raise kids. You’re working so hard just to make the ends meet, now they wanna throw some God-forsaken shopping-spree holiday on top of that?

What could possibly be worse?

I don’t know. Maybe if you lived through all those holidays, you might make it the new year, celebrating with your family with some hope of maybe having a better life next year?

What? No hope?

It’s no wonder these are the most popular holidays to commit suicide. Let’s take a look at them:

Too much drama and trauma will kill you, and if it doesn’t kill you, some people are determined to do it themselves.

But don’t you let them get away with it.

You’re not going to check out. You’re not going to give them the satisfaction.

You can be betrayed by your family so many times it makes you want to puke just to think about it. You’ve been stabbed in the back so often or abused in any number of other ways, it’s a miracle that you can even stand, but here you are.

You are here.

And you know you came here to do some serious work, and that work starts today.

When I was at my lowest and I thought I couldn’t take one more step, one more breath, I decided to do something radical to make a difference in the world, and in doing so, I made a huge difference in myself.

I discovered that one person could make a difference, and that’s exactly what I did.

That year, instead of committing suicide over the holidays I decided to send love to others who might be going through the same thing. And as I engaged in this meditative prayer exercise, every cell of my body began to awaken.

Enthusiastically, I increased the range of my endeavor and started sending love to the world. And since then, I’ve had thousands of people join me in sending love to the world, which if even in some small way does make the world a better place.

One Side and the Other Side

In a world that has gone mad in many ways, it leaves so many depressed, hurting, broken, suffering, and even suicidal. This is the time of year that so many people commit suicide, when all the while incredible love and charity are thick in the air.

You walk down the street and you see the streets decorated, couples walking hand-in-hand, lights sparkling, cleverly adorned store windows. It’s the time of year that people feel more love, are more compassionate, share their abundance with others, are more likely to help others less fortunate, and family comes together to share in the love. And the kids, the kid’s hearts are filling with love and anticipation as they bask in the awareness that this is their favorite time of year.

Ahh, so lovely.

If this is the street you walk down. You stay there. Whatever you do, do not veer off the main thoroughfare. Because there is so much reality happening all around you that you might not be aware of. And if you did know, you might be shocked. And if you knew the truth about it, what would you do? What could you do?

You don’t have to look very far to have access to an enormous, overwhelming barrage of bad news about how horrible life is on this planet every day. Turn on the TV, radio, cell phone, tablet, any device any time and you will be instantly bombarded by how our planet is falling apart, our resources are dwindling, our people are dying, and more and more of them are taking their own lives because it’s just too hard to face one more day.

What’s the fastest-growing age range for suicide today? 10- to 14-year-old children. If that doesn’t get your attention, I don’t know what could.

That’s on one side.

On the other side is the statistics that bear out that our world is evolving, growing, and expanding. There are miraculous moments throughout this life happening every day. Miracles. People’s lives changing for the better. There is more growing awareness, prosperity, love, and compassion on this planet than ever before. And our resources are expanding as our consciousness and awareness expand and we are not limited to the resources that are doled out to us by corporations. We are getting smarter, wiser, healthier, living longer, and there’s nothing the pharmaceutical companies or the government can do to stop us, no matter how they try.

Everything is always getting better.

My friend is driving down the alleyway and he sees a man lying alongside the wall. He pulls over to offer the man his Chinese take-out, he was on the way home with. He pulls over, walks over to the guy and says, “Hey buddy.”

No response.

Gently nudges him with his foot, “Hey, guy.” And the guy is stiff as a board.

My friend calls 9-1-1 and they ask him not to touch anything and to stay with the body until they get there.

What happened? I don’t know.

But on the other side of that building, the sparkling holiday decorations, smiling kids, and shoppers did not miss a beat. Unaware that there was a man whose life had ceased out back in the alleyway by the dumpster.

This is the reality of it. Even as much as everything is getting better, there are those who do not want the news to get out about how better its getting. There is advanced science and technology happening right now, and some that have been around for years, that we will never hear about, if the corporations and the government have anything to say about it. And they do, for now, but we are becoming more and more aware.

Even so, while we’re living on a planet with more potential than ever before, we are being pummeled by the media and a system dedicated to keeping us enslaved and beat down. Many of us suffer every day, so depressed, and feeling more hopeless every day. So much so, that we cannot find the wherewithal to justify taking another breath from someone else who might be more deserving. So, we might think, “Why can’t I just die?” and left alone to that thought process, might even consider, “What’s the point? I’d be better off dead,” and start ideating about suicide.

And this life can exert enough pressure on your heart, your body, and your soul, that there’s just nothing left to give. Your life’s cup may be empty, leaving you with nothing left to motivate you to have any desire to wake up tomorrow.

But here’s what you failed to remember, and there are powers that exist in our world who hope you never remember who you are, and they’ve been doing everything possible to keep you from realizing who you really are.

Who are you?

Well, we don’t have time to go into every detail, but know this: You came to this planet with a unique set of skills, special abilities, and message to deliver, and when you were very young, you knew exactly who you were, but by the time you were five or six, the system had wiped any hope of you remembering who you were.

Now you are awakening. How do I know? Because you’re reading these words, right now. You are coming to an awareness that has never occurred to you with such clarity as at this moment. While from your current vantage point, it may appear cloudy, you are seeing things more clearly for the first time.

It’s no wonder you’re feeling a bit off. You’re just now realizing things are not as they seem.

You’ve got to hang in there. Dig down deep, remember who you really are, get to know and love that version of you, embrace your passion and your calling. Get out there and do what you were meant to do, say what you sent here to say.

The world needs you now more than ever.
