ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
The next Paradigm Shifters gathering will be on Saturday, July 28th. The specific focus for this month will be the difference between rejection and abandonment, how it affects the body, and how to clear these issues. I will combine the Basic and Advanced together so it will be from 11 to 1 with a semi-veg potluck from 1-2 at my home in Santa Rosa (email for directions). The cost is $25. Please RSVP no later than Wednesday, July 25th. I welcome all students of ThetaHealing®. Besides having time to work on yourself, remember that the more you practice, the better practitioner you will become, and the more that ThetaHealing® can be incorporated into your life to change it. Having facilitation is important to make your practice more skillful. There will be no gathering in August due to family visits and workshops.
Rev. Danielle Marie Hewitt, a fellow ThetaHealer, runs an amazing holistic Healing Center in Lake Forest, CA. called the Temple of Light. She asked me to write an article for their July issue of Radiance magazine. Please feel free to read 'Moving Beyond Abuse' on page 13 at http://radiancemagazine.org/julyaugust-2012
The following courses are accredited by the ThetaHealing Institute of Knowledge® and can be applied toward the ThetaHealing® Master program. More information at http://www.thetadnaactivation.com/workshops.html

BLOG FOR THE SOUL
I’m sure it’s been a journey making it through both eclipses, the completion of the Venus retrograde and a hard hit solar flare party in June. For myself, as many of you already know, this intense astrological period made way for big shifts for me.
The eclipses of May and June (combined with the Venus occupation) were like nibbles of what is to be coming for each of us. Many, including myself, have felt things like, “I’m changing jobs or connections” or “I’m moving” (which I plan to sell my house soon, have been waiting for a year to do this) without fully understanding how this will all manifest. I have some big things yet to do on and for the planet, and this next part of my journey needs support in a different way. The retrogrades were like a garden timer setting up a delay until the proper timing in my readiness occurs. The pause allowed a deepened trust and a fuller acceptance of divine order, a timing to my next steps, and the pace for that will be different than how I did it before…without pushing, without feeling pushed, with being more open to how I am to continue my journey of evolvement being on the path of less resistance as I move forward expressing myself in a new way. I’m grateful for this insight and wisdom.
So with all that, and for clarity because there has been some confusion among other Theta students, practitioners, and teachers, I AM continuing in my ThetaHealing practice of 14 years, workshop teaching, practicums and in my connection with the ThetaHealing Institute of Knowledge out of Idaho Falls where Vianna is. I have, though, resigned from the ThetaHealing School of CA. as a team member. The time for this association to end has been on my mind for over six months. I asked Creator to give me the signs in April about whether to stay or leave (and then when), and I received my answer from many sources. I had been feeling a deeper sense of joy that was hard to describe prior to the big May 20th eclipse but didn’t thoroughly get it until I decided to just let go and resign. It was the right choice for me.
Now be ready for another retrograde from July 14th to August 7th…Mercury. some practitioners download people to be impervious to retrogrades but because astrology is a 6th Plane energy, pure truth, and depending what someone’s primary and secondary laws are (from DNA3 understanding), this might not be overly effective. The deeper beliefs need to be cleared as the growth of the person evolves.
Did anyone see the movie, “Butterfly Effect" where there were alternative endings and you got to choose which one you wanted to view just like the main character did within the movie itself? If we keep in mind that we can avoid a great deal of stress and tribulation from a retrograde by using retrospection, we can review the moment and it will help us to consider and improvise an alternative ending that will reenergize how we see things and come up with the right decisions for us.
Vianna talks a great deal about going up to the 7th Plane every day to re-energize even if we aren’t working on clients…let ourselves be the client, just hanging out in that iridescent energy of All That IS. This helps calm us, releases serotonin and is where a direct sense of inspiration can come through.
There has also been a great deal of information on Facebook about ways to manifest or create in our life, not exactly in the way we’ve learned in ThetaHealing. When I sat with these understandings which were coming through an astrologer who I happen to greatly respect, I realized that there was no need to polarize what was Truth and to work with the grey zone. I felt that receiving from the Divine/All-That-Is had a wider spectrum awareness just like there is more than one way to remember our connection to Creator-of -All.
This astrologer discusses in a book she wrote and online, which has great stories of synchronicities and letting go (she calls surrendering), more of what I call a passive way of manifesting…align with the Divine and just let it happen because ‘she’ knows what you want and need. To align, one needs to surrender, not have our will or desires involved, and create affirmations/prayers to the Divine that all will happen in the highest and best way and time. This seems very spiritual and full of truth. It also feels like some of the truths/beliefs are from the 5th Plane about not having any desires, ‘she’ connotation of gender duality of the Divine-of-All, and ‘surrendering’ which the subconscious often interprets as defeat.
And this is what I ask you to consider because we are human with lots of beliefs that can limit us subconsciously. Vianna has shared repeatedly, “The Great Secret of manifesting is knowing what you want. Never let your brain create on its own. [automatic computer take-over]. The truth is that we create part of our own reality. Every thought we thing is a manifestation [thank our Higher Selves for siphoning things out so we’re not manifesting every feeling or thought we have!] Some of us have wonderful beliefs but are bringing things to us because of our genetics or unresolved issues. Make sure you have a list of things to create and a list of goals to obtain otherwise the Universe needs to step in to entertain you. Write down everything you want and need in your life and don’t be afraid to use the word ‘need’…because we need food, we need to eat, and we need to breath. The more beliefs you clear, the faster you manifest (Dec. ’08) She also said, “Divine timing comes to us in the planetary rhythms of universal knowledge. Often, one can manifest easily, but there is Divine Timing [an event, not a timing] which may want us at a certain place to meet someone or do something that is absolutely relevant for our soul & planetary evolvement… this can be shown.” I call this active conscious manifestation with a touch of unconscious active manifestation through Divine Timing.
Divine Timing is best understood through the Manifestation and Abundance workshop experience. In simplicity, it is something you decide and agree to do with All-That-IS during your life, an event, which you decide before you are even born. You decide it is the key factor, and it can’t be changed. The earthly time is variable, but the event will occur. This is where the unconscious active manifestation comes in because it has already been set. Things will unfold, which we call synchronicity, to lead us to accomplish what we said we wanted to do. It is a desire and a strong internal longing, and there is nothing wrong with having desires that work for the highest and best for us.
It’s sorting all this out that can become confusing in whether to just passively allow the Divine to show us by just waiting for life to happen, or just say what we want or need, put it out to the Divine-of-All through a conscious manifestation, and then let it go to see what unfolds. I realize, though, that we often get so attached to the outcome that we hold on for dear life, worry about it until we loose trust in the Divine when it doesn’t happen in the way or when we thought it should. I think this is where the astrologer has a good point…to let go and allow. And there is no reason to not put out what you want. And Yes, sometimes what we have as desires is stopped by our Soul and Higher Self (by the Grace of Creator) for something we weren’t aware would be better for us in the long run. But we can actually look at this as we get better at manifestations. Ask, “If I have it, what will happen?” See if there is any conflict or stress, looking also at how the people you’re with will be or feel if you have your manifestation; visualize it completely as if you’re there… Make sure you try on your manifestations and make it so it’s right!” …Dec. 28th ’10).
Vianna shared this story about wanting to manifest horses as she had once had them years back and was good at raising them. “But then when I manifested, I saw how beautiful they were, training them, bringing them hay…I’m allergic to hay! I could see all the work that went into training, trimming, riding and caring for them. I realized that I just like the smell of horses and to pet them. I like to ride occasionally, but I don’t want to own horses again…my manifestation showed me that. It didn’t show me that I was blocking it. Rather than clearing those blocks, I took that as good advice. I saw the work and changed my mind. Some day I will have horses, but I’ll have stables and people to take care of the horses and stables.” (Dec. 28th ’10) So in being showed what the manifestation would entail, she dis-created it. You can do this.
She also told the teachers (Aug ’09 webcast), “I’ve watched my classes over all these years, and they’re based on how I feel. If I feel fantastic, really strong, I’ll have a 250 person class. If I feel a little tired and maybe a little run down, than I’ll only have 50 people in the class. I know that the size of the class is based on the amount of people God wanted me to teach this day. [this is a deep trust in All-That-IS] If you’re tired and your health is bad, Creator has compassion for you and will only bring you a few students. Take care of yourself and your body so more students will come just because you can handle them.” So in a state of ill-health, you are subconsciously putting out that you are unable to handle too much. This is a manifestation.
The point of this is to make clear that we create subconsciously all the time, and there is no reason we should feel that our thoughts cannot be aligned with Creator for us to consciously co-create and manifest. This is working in the grey zone where we don’t need to polarize truth. And it’s what I was sharing about in the retrograde… using retrospection… we can review the moment and it will help us to consider and improvise an alternative ending that will reenergize how we see things and come up with the right decisions for us which is not separate from All-that-IS in giving us free will.
While hanging out at the 7th Plane recently, a thought came to me…to have part of the newsletter for ThetaHealing quotes or information from Vianna. ‘T. I.P.S.’ [Thetahealing Inspired Positive Supplementals]…things we’ve heard in the workshops or webcasts but tend to forget. I may even put a page up on Facebook. So this month’s newsletter is dedicated to some of those T.I.P.S. that Vianna has directly discussed that can really help us to gather ourselves in a more proficient and efficient way to work on or be with ourselves and others. (taken from Dec. ’09 and Nov. ’11 webcasts)
1. One of the important new things we have taught in the past three years in Idaho is you need to go up, connect to the Energy-of-All-That-Is and stay connected without grounding. When you are in that Energy-of-All-That-Is, you are in that perfect grounding state. You do not have to put yourself back into the ground to pull your energy up. The ThetaHealing book will teach you to ground to learn the techniques, but when you go up to the Creator, if you stay up there, you stay in a better energy.
2. If you’re clear on your thoughts and beliefs, you’ll be clever on how to handle the problems around you.
3. Rules of ThetaHealing to stay clear and focused.
a. Never take people off their medication
b. Always believe in free agency
c. We are a ‘God’ modality…we believe in an Energy that runs through All-of- Creation, a creative force that we can tap into which goes by many names. Clients might not say they believe in God, but they do believe in an Energy-That-Moves-In-All-Things, and that’s all they have to believe in. Most people have a mistaken identity of God. They believe that God is going to hurt, abandon, reject, punish or harm them.
4. Downloading a positive energy can be done on any inanimate object. Downloading on people, animals or plants need permission (Higher Self for animals & plants)
5. If you do a 30 minute session of adding things (downloads) to a person (or yourself), it’s not near as effective as digging and finding out what beliefs are needed. There isn’t a generic recipe for every single person. If you want to be an accountable practitioner, realize that beliefs do come up and you should dig on them. If people are paying you to be downloaded for 30 minutes, then I think you are not really accessing the abilities of ThetaHealing, and you won’t get very many people coming back as clients.
6. When you manifest for something, you manifest for the highest and best. You cannot manifest for another person.
7. If you are thankful for everything that Creator gives you, then you get sent more.
8. If a practitioner has big abandonment issues, it will keep people from coming to them. There is a fear if a client comes too close, that the practitioner will be left… so you end up in your own way, of pushing the client away. If you love the clients, they will not only refer others but will be your friend. When you clear up these abandonment issues, you start to sort through your life clearing out people that have just taken up space but serve little purpose for your soul advancement. The more issues you clear of abandonment, the more your vitamins will absorb because there is more energy of love. The more your vitamins absorb, the faster certain things happen (manifest).
9. Every time you do belief work, it is a healing, and when a healing is given, something has happened. We don’t tell people they are healed. We watch the healings and ask them to get checked by a doctor or medical professional.
10. The truth is … our genetic programs are making it a bit more challenging to do everything we want to do. We have to push through these belief systems. You can do it the easy way in a nice and gentle fashion with belief work…you can just change a few beliefs and do it, or you can do it the hard way by determination and sheer will but you can make it. We forget that we can work on ourselves. In fact, we will often go get an aspirin instead of working on ourselves because the aspirin is right there.
11. Once an object or land is blessed, it’s done. You may want to re-insert that blessing once a year but it really keeps for a very, very long time.
12. Give back to the Universe…when we do extra kindness to people, it does come back to us 100 fold.
Have a wonderful July. I will be assisting the arrival of a new grandson soon.
The Untapped Power of Smiling
We're born to do it. A smile is one of the most basic, biologically uniform expressions of all humans. Paul Ekman, the world's leading expert on facial expressions, discovered that smiles are cross-cultural and have the same meaning in different societies. 3-D ultrasound technology shows that developing babies appear to smile even in the womb. The mood-boosting power of a smile is unfathomable. Studies show that one smile can provide the same level of brain stimulation as up to 2,000 chocolate bars. Yet, unlike lots of chocolate, lots of smiling can actually make you healthier.

Two Scientists develop sleep mask to lucid dream
In a twist straight out of the movie Inception, a duo of developers from Brooklyn, New York, have built a sleeping mask designed to allow people to have lucid dreams that they can control. While it may look like a standard sleeping mask, Remee has been billed as a special REM (Rapid Eye Movement) enhancing device that is supposed to help steer the sleeper into lucid dreaming by making the brain aware that it is dreaming.The goal of the product is to allow people to have the dreams of their choice, from driving a race car to flying to having lunch with Abraham Lincoln.
DNA and GENETICS
The Honeymoon Effect: Epigenetics
Bruce Lipton is a stem-cell biologist who ... performed pioneering research at Stanford University before writing his bestselling book, The Biology of Belief, in 2005. His message does not come from quick pop interpretations of quantum mechanics but from work with cell cultures in a lab. These experiments showed that environments and circumstances, not genetic makeup, dictate how cells behave. Despite all the pharmaceutical claims of individually based genetic medicine, genetic determinism may have had its day. Lipton’s research shows a different perspective. Identical cells developed in different directions when the environment was changed. Different information led genes to evolve in different ways. So genes don’t control life; they respond to information. The implications are profound. Change your environment, and you can change how you think. “We are not locked into our fate, because we have the freedom to change the way we respond to the world,” he explains.
DNA has been found to have a bizarre ability to put itself together, even at a distance, when according to known science it shouldn't be able to. Scientists are reporting evidence that contrary to our current beliefs about what is possible, intact double-stranded DNA has the “amazing” ability to recognize similarities in other DNA strands from a distance. Somehow they are able to identify one another, and the tiny bits of genetic material tend to congregate with similar DNA. The recognition of similar sequences in DNA’s chemical subunits, occurs in a way unrecognized by science. Double helixes of DNA can recognize matching molecules from a distance and then gather together, all seemingly without help from any other molecules or chemical signals.
Plastic-Eating Fungi may Solve World’s Waste Problem
A group of students and professors from Yale University have found a fungi in the Amazon rainforest that can degrade and utilize the common plastic polyurethane (PUR). As part of the university’s Rainforest Expedition and Laboratory educational program, designed to engage undergraduate students in discovery-based research, the group searched for plants and cultured the micro-organisms within their tissue.
Lone Star Tick May Make Vegetarians of Some
University of Virginia researchers say that a bite from the lone star tick, so-called for the white spot on its back, allows the tick’s saliva to sneak into the tiny wound which may trigger an allergic skin rash reaction to meat within four hours -- agonizing enough to convert lifelong carnivores into wary vegetarians. Blood levels of antibodies for alpha-gal, a sugar found in red meat, lamb and pork, rise after a single bite from the lone star tick. This bizarre allergy is popping up along the East Coast and into the Bible Belt.
Five Easy to Grow Mosquito Repelling Plants
As the outdoor season approaches, many homeowners and outdoor enthusiasts look for ways to control mosquitoes. With all the publicity about the West Nile virus, mosquito repelling products are gaining in popularity. But many commercial insect repellents contain from 5% to 25% DEET. There are concerns about the potential toxic effects of DEET, especially when used by children. Children who absorb high amounts of DEET through insect repellents have developed seizures, slurred speech, hypotension and bradycardia. There are new DEET-Free mosquito repellents on the market today which offer some relief to those venturing outdoors in mosquito season. But there are also certain plants which are easy to grow and will have some effect in repelling mosquitoes from areas of your home and garden.
Dengue Fever: Eliminate by Genetically Engineered mosquitoes or a bacterium named Wolbachiapipientis
Dengue fever is on the rise worldwide and spreading faster than any other insect-borne viral disease. When Wolbachia infects mosquitoes, the mosquitoes' ability to transmit Dengue virus is almost completely blocked. In Australia, Oxitec has found a way to genetically manipulate Aedes aegypti, the mosquito species mainly responsible for transmitting Dengue and yellow fever viruses to humans. These "frankenskeeters" represent a new and terrifying twist in potential GMO (genetically modified organisms) dangers—another product of modern science outpacing common sense when big money is thrown into the equation. Transgenic mosquitoes are less effective, less efficient, more costly and far more risky.iv Unfortunately, GE "mutant mosquitoes" have already been released into the environment, without public consent, in several countries. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/06/24/gm-mosquitoes-lessen-dengue-outbreak.aspx?e_cid=20120624_SNL_Art_1
Jewelweed for Poison Ivy/oak
When exposed to poison ivy, poison oak or stinging nettle, the best thing to do is to immediately take a jewelweed plant, slice the stem open, and rub it directly on the exposed parts of the skin. This prompt action will often be enough to prevent a reaction entirely, and at the very least will offer significant symptom relief. Chopped jewelweed can be brewed in boiling water to produce a dark orange infusion, which can then be stored for later use. This liquid can be frozen into ice cubes, which can then be rubbed directly onto skin rashes for healing relief. Alternately, the liquid can be canned in a pressure cooker. Frozen jewelweed infusions remain potent for up to a year, while canned infusions remain potent until opened. http://www.naturalnews.com/036190_poison_ivy_remedies_jewelweed.html
