ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
The next Paradigm Shifters gathering will be on Saturday, July 12th from 11 to 1:30 with an organic potluck after. The theme is “What beliefs get in the way from seeing or trusting what you see in the body.” We will do body scans and digging with an exercise in future readings. The cost is $30 and all money goes to the Grant/scholarship fund. Please RSVP no later than Wednesday, July 9th 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 and having a supportive group of like-minded people helps to make it safe to delve into issues.
All 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
Hi to everyone: I’m always appreciative to hear feedback and reviews on the newsletters, what resonates with you and how you could apply this information to your lives.
Today, July 1st , Mercury has rested on its direct station (I can hear drum rolls). Oh...but there is a shadow piece to ride until Mercury reaches its normal speed on July 15th. During the retrograde, I hope you had plenty of time to review your situations, keep big decisions at a distance, watched your tongue…at least being able to check in with yourself mindfully before communicating, not have your car mechanic, repairman, or credit card company become your best friend, (unless that was going on before ;-) and have time to clear more from the palette of billions of beliefs.
As Mercury goes back into direct mode, especially today as clarity wants to begin to form during the transition time, we may feel more confused than ever. When you add the Grand Cross this past spring, with the Eclipses and the recent triggering of the Grand Cross again, it has been an especially intense and for many challenging time period. (I’ll raise my hand on that one). So hang in for a few more days to make sure the gears have fully shifted, and then you can begin to see the true picture making your choices and decisions accordingly.
Last month, someone posted on my FB in response to a placard about wounding, scars, and the heart. I’m so grateful for my many years in ThetaHealing to be able to hear stories at a different level than how the old paradigm wants us to perceive things. If it wasn’t for clearing so many 4th and 5th Plane beliefs and my own personal journey, this awareness would not have been so crystal clear.
I know that the person who offered this story felt it was a story of truth as did those who followed him on his personal FB page, in what love is about. The placard actually said, ‘When something suffered damaged and has a history, it becomes more beautiful'. I liked it because, in my perspective, it spoke to me about the healing of the suffering, not the suffering... it's the healing that is so beautiful, strong and courageous. And I offer the story to all of you to ponder upon. Is there real truth about healing and love as far as the beliefs contained in it? My questions and commentary follow after the story.
One day, a young man was standing in the middle of the town square proclaiming that he had the most beautiful heart in the whole valley. A large crowd gathered and they all admired his heart for it was perfect. There was not a mark or flaw in it. Yes, they all agreed that it was the most beautiful heart they had ever seen. The young man was very proud and boasted more loudly about his beautiful heart.
Suddenly, an old man appeared at the front of the crowd and said: "Why, your heart is not nearly as beautiful as mine". The crowd and the young man looked at the old man's heart. It was beating strongly, but full of scars, it had places where pieces had been removed and other pieces put in, but they didn't fit quite right, and there were several jagged edges. In fact, in some places there were deep gouges where whole pieces were missing.
The people stared and thought, “How can he say that his heart is more beautiful?” while the young man looked at the old man's heart and saw its state…he laughed.
"You must be joking," he said. "Compare your heart with mine, mine is perfect and yours is a mess of scars and tears."
"Yes," said the old man. "Yours is perfect looking, but I would never trade with you. You see, every scar represents a person to whom I have given my love - I tear out a piece of my heart and give it to them, and often they give me a piece of their heart which fits into the empty place in my heart; but because the pieces aren't exact, I have some rough edges, which I cherish, because they remind me of the love we shared. Sometimes, I have given pieces of my heart away, and the other person hasn't returned a piece of his heart to me. These are the empty gouges - giving love is taking a chance. Although these gouges are painful, they stay open, reminding me of the love I have for these people too, and I hope someday they may return and fill the space I have waiting. So now do you see what true beauty is?"
The young man stood silently with tears running down his cheeks. He walked up to the old man, reached into his perfect young and beautiful heart, and ripped a piece out. He offered it to the old man with trembling hands. The old man took his offering, placed it in his heart, and then took a piece of his old scarred heart and placed it in the wound in the young man's heart. It fit, but not perfectly, as there were some jagged edges. The young man looked at his heart, not perfect anymore, but more beautiful than ever since love from the old man's heart flowed into his. They embraced and walked away side by side.
How sad it must be to go through life with a whole heart.
Again, perceptions of what love is, and what it takes to experience, see and embrace it through healing is very different than what we learn particularly from the awareness of the Advanced ThetaHealing beliefs. I enjoyed extracting the patterns and looking at the beliefs within them. And this is a great way to practice working with beliefs...take any story, and play with the content and characters of each in what is the deeper awareness. I’ve put possible beliefs or Creator’s teachings in italics.
The first part of the story was about two men boasting about the conditions of their hearts. The younger man boasts of his heart’s beauty through appearance and of perfection due to appearance. I wondered, “Why boast of something if it’s already true?” Being open to acknowledgments through humility and owning the beauty of the heart within, is different than boasting for recognition of something that is only based on appearance and to stroke the ego. [teach the person the difference] Obviously, this part of the story was clearly there for the contrast of egotism. A few beliefs I heard in this were:
I need to be perfect to know love
Love only comes from the appearance of perfection.
Then the outside audience agrees with the young man. So the majority rules ‘theme’ shows up as confirmation and what has to be truth. [To know the difference between what everyone else thinks and perceives and one’s own truth through All that IS] This feels like something from the Emperor’s new clothes where everyone agrees to something that isn’t true. I wondered why everyone agreed in that crowd. What would have happened if someone didn’t agree and went against the crowd? [perhaps fear digging would have shown up as necessary if I wanted to gear the session in that direction]
The old man also boasts and competes for attention, but from the perspective of what the beauty of the heart is as experienced through hardships, suffering, expectations of others filling his heart in, and sacrifice. It’s the martyr archetype. The old man sees love as a risk with an expectation of returning pieces he gave away…like an eye for an eye… but pieces of a heart for another’s piece of the heart. It’s held as trading for fulfillment, and it’s embedded with the 4th Plane awareness. Trading somehow signifies the fulfillment of love and beauty. He needs his wounds, his “gouges”, to remind him of the love he has for others. These are the patterns underneath his story. The beliefs are:
I have to risk to know love. (forgetting or negating that love dwells within each of us)
I need hardships, suffering, and expectations of others to fulfill my heart
I need sacrifice to know the beauty of my heart.
True beauty is the experience through the wounded (or fractured) heart.
I have to compare another’s appearance of their truth to my wounds to know the beauty of my heart.
I have to trade my wounded heart, as a symbol of beauty, with another to feel love.
I have to wait for pieces of my heart to be returned to me to know my heart is fulfilled. [the story says, “I hope someday they may return and fill the space I have waiting.” Good place to return soul fragments]
Letting go of pieces of myself (heart) is the best way to know that love exists with another
At this next point in the story, the young man sees his perspective as not being the truth around the beauty and perfection of the heart, but of feeling a softening through seeing/hearing about hardship as love, and that he now needed wounds to have a perfect heart like the old man. (thus the young man tore out a piece of his heart to replace it in the old man’s wounded heart.) They meet at the place of ‘woundology’ to find ‘love’ for, and connection with, each other. And love flowed to the young man from the elder because the wounds allowed for the transfer. Having a whole heart becomes sadness as if something is misaligned or missing the true understanding of the situation. Beliefs extracted along with possible Creator's teachings:
I need to agree with another’s perspective of the heart to know love and connection.
I know what love and connection is in the Highest and best way through All that IS.
I can know my own truth around love and connection w/o agreeing with another’s perspective or making them wrong.
To transfer love, there needs to be wounds to receive it.
[Love is part of everything in Creation. Atoms just change through thought.]
To have a whole heart is to be unfulfilled and unloved.
Keeping my heart as an embodiment of wholeness, allows love to exist and grow.
Giving away one's heart to remember the sharing of love is different than sharing love in acknowledging the wholeness of ourselves even if there was wounding. Sacrificing of oneself for love when love is always present is a misaligned perspective. Again, our healing of our own experiences of suffering is beautiful, not the suffering; and so is the light shining through a single raindrop. We don’t need the scars to remember what happened to us. We don’t need to give ourselves away piece by piece to know that love exists.
Have fun with looking at your every day interactions and clients from the perspective of the story and its patterns. This doesn’t mean to let go of the compassion and love we have for our clients, friends or family, but allows us to keep our heart intact and centered, our focus on the patterns under the story and staying detached from any emotions that is held within. It keeps us relating at a whole new level of communication…great for the new position of Mercury.
And I truly believe and feel that we will not need these levels of separation of love, as exemplified through this story, to evolve in the future. We first need to know what love is, that it starts with ourselves and that Creator is always a part of us.
With fun and blessings,
Predictive anticipatory activity ( PAA) is where the brain detect events at least 10 seconds before they even occur. This phenomenon has been called presentiment (as in "feeling the future"). In this paper it is called predictive anticipatory activity or PAA. The phenomenon is "predictive" because it can distinguish between upcoming stimuli; it is "anticipatory" because the physiological changes occur before a future event; and it is an "activity" because it involves changes in the cardiopulmonary, skin, and/or nervous systems.
A monumental discovery with four years of comprehensive geo-archaeological research has failed to reach mainstream audiences for some reason. The most active pyramid site in the world dating the pyramid complex back 25,000 years has also released scientific evidence supporting the theory that the pyramids were used as an energy source. The recent study reveals energy beams transmitting electromagnetic signals unexplainable by our science in what is now documented as the largest Pyramid complex in the world. Overwhelming evidence, supported by scientific research from all over the archaeological community proves that our recorded history is wrong concerning ancient cultures, which in turn changes religion, science and academics.
IBM Solar Collectors magnifies sun 2000x-could provide energy for whole planet
The process of trapping the sunlight produces water that can be used to produce filtered drinkable water, or used for other things like air conditioning etc. Scientists envision that the HCPVT system could provide sustainable energy and fresh water to communities all around the world. http://banoosh.com/blog/2014/02/27/ibm-solar-collector-magnifies-sun-2000x-provide-power-entire-planet/
Physicists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands were able to successfully "teleport" information over a distance of 10 feet
The rules for the subatomic world are totally unlike the rules for our macroscopic world. A particle can be in multiple places at the same time, and can even disappear on one side of a barrier and reappear on the other side without actually traveling through it. This comes from quantum theory, and while it sounds totally nonintuitive, it's one of the most successful models physicists have for understanding our world.
Twice as fast as Concorde: The supersonic jet that will fly from London to New York in TWO HOURS
A jet that can fly from London to Sydney in three and a half hours could rob Concorde of its title as the fastest-ever passenger plane. Plans have been unveiled for the Hypermach SonicStar, a business jet which will be capable of a top speed of 2,664mph – twice as fast as Concorde. It will fly at 62,000ft, allowing passengers to see the curvature of the earth.
LOVE AND MARRIAGE
Red may be the color of love for a reason: It makes men feel more amorous towards women, a new study reports. In five psychological experiments, University of Rochester psychologists tested how different colors affected men's attitudes towards women. http://www.livescience.com/culture/081028-red-attraction.html
Traditional marriage is not biblical
Those who claim the biblical model for marriage is one man and one woman for life apparently haven’t been reading the Bible. Upon marriage, a woman’s property and her body became the possession of her new husband. As the head of the household, men (usually between the ages of 18 and 24) had nearly unlimited rights over wives and children. A woman became available for men’s possession soon after she reached puberty (usually 11 to 13 years old), that is, when she became physically able to produce children. Today we call such sexual arrangements statutory rape. The biblical model for sexual relationships includes adult males taking girls into their bedchambers, as King David did in 1 Kings 1:1-3. Throughout the Hebrew text, it is taken for granted that women (as well as children) are the possessions of men. Her dignity and worth as one created in the image of God is subordinated to the needs and desires of men. As chattel, women are often equated with a house or livestock (Dt. 20:5-7), as demonstrated in the last commandment, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, wife, slave, ox or donkey” (Ex. 20:17).
What your baby knows might freak you out
According to researchers at Yale University's Infant Cognition Center, also known as "The Baby Lab," babies can actually tell good from evil, even as young as 3 months old as well as judge a person’s character. "Humans are born with a hard-wired morality, a sense of good and evil is bred in the bone," wrote Paul Bloom, Yale's Brooks and Suzanne Ragen professor of psychology. “we find that one of the most tragic aspects of humanity is how we split the world into 'us versus them' and this is from the earliest age we can test."
