ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
PRACTICUM ON June 30th
The next Paradigm Shifters gathering will be on Saturday, June 30th. The specific focus for this month will be “How to ‘hear’ Creator’s teachings in a client’s story so they can be downloaded effectively” and “Clearing those old commitments, vows, oaths and contracts that need to be run through the paper shredder.”
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, June 27th. 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.
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
Welcome to all, and to my new Basic practitioners from Bishop, Ca. What a wonderful group you are! Special thanks to Marla Gabriel for organizing the workshop, for having me at the beautiful home of her partner, Frank, and for inviting me back in the Fall for another Basic and Advanced workshop.
What a wild area Bishop is…I don’t mean wild socially…I didn’t see any of that. The terrain is wild…high desert, scrub brush and great mineral vortexes. And the area had some surprise clouds over Keough Hot Springs, which I soaked in the day before the class. Surprise because they formed out of the blue (well, I guess clouds do that but this was different) and evolved into distinct shapes quickly with a hidden energy that felt quite eerie. The locals had not seen any that looked like these before. Even my assistant, Dexter, who had once lived in this area for eight years, was amazed. I got some good pictures of them (and uploaded them onto my Facebook). And interestingly, within a few hours of leaving the Hot Springs, one of the locals who knew Dexter called him to say that eight people at the Hot Springs including himself and an 83 year old witness, saw a UFO come out from the clouds. I’m definitely glad that I only saw the ship-shaping clouds because it wasn’t a ‘beam-me-up-Scottie’ trip. I can’t imagine needing to give an excuse for either being late or not showing up at the first day of class because I had an out-of-planet experience.
So bringing this back to a more grounding topic, I recently had a correspondence with a newer ThetaHealing Instructor asking me some questions about downloads and digging work in how I work with different kinds of clients. Many of us have our specialties with clients who gravitate to our practices with specific issues. For instance, I work a great deal with clients who have trauma. I can sense it when I first meet them. Other practitioners have clients come in who need work on body system or self esteem issues. But what is really important is that practitioners know how to dig deeply using both the belief and download work.
Witnessing Creator’s teachings or downloads go into a person as well as belief changing is usually very fast. As a practitioner watches more, one can ‘see/sense/feel’ the different parts of the body that is affected. Downloads are great for clearing many beliefs at once, for giving concepts of feelings that the psyche doesn’t have, for stabilizing a session that might not complete after the scheduled time, and for energizing a client after the bottom belief/s are cleared.
In a recent webcast, Vianna shared that on some clients, she works in a more psychic and intuitive way by talking more to them, doing a lot of downloads, and maybe clearing a few beliefs. Some cultures are offended w/deep work. They want to feel safe. So it’s really important to have Creator teach them that it’s ok to have their feelings, that their feelings are safe. I work this way with my clients who have deep trauma because I don’t want them to flood with memories, and the teachings allow the client to find a more grounded orientation. It’s a process and not a happening with these deeper issues.
Recently, there has been a trend where practitioners are picking a topic, for instance ‘transitions’, and selling packages of downloads that fit issues around it. My trepidations with this is that downloads aren’t checked if the person fully received them, they may not be specific to what the person really needs, the receiver may not know how to check and clear what the download might bring up, there are no beliefs that are changed and no digging is done. I think, personally, that digging individually would be more effective in clearing the topic. I realize that some of the Theta workshops give a great deal of downloads which really shifts the class, but there are also opportunities to work and dig out issues to create balance.
When Vianna first introduced the Advanced workshop in 2004, which I hosted her here in Northern California, she had us stand, test all these Creator’s teachings, and we were supposed to download them on ourselves. We didn’t have a sheet to look at, and I felt overwhelmed in even witnessing it quickly on myself. So in my practical Capricornian way, I instead wrote every teaching down, went home, downloaded them all, then went back and tested each one on whether I received it. I then changed the teaching to a belief (i.e. ‘I know what it is to love myself’ to, ‘I love myself’) to see if I had that belief. One can know what it is to love oneself but may not love themselves anyways, and this would indicate the necessity for digging it out to find out ‘why’. So I did that and spent hours clearing. Three weeks later the results showed up…my whole financial issues changed more abundantly ever since. This is true!
One of the important things in digging is finding out when the situation first began, going to the point of origin of the belief or pattern. Some practitioners seem to think, though, that finding that original pattern entails delving to past lives. I personally feel that most original patterns happen right in this lifetime in the childhood, and past life stories are sometimes a way to distance from what happened, a comfort zone. It keeps things safe for both the practitioner and possibly for the client. Sometimes the practitioner’s unconscious fears or triggers keep them from allowing the client to go deep into that starting point of the pattern. It’s like having someone in front of you who’s going to reflect what you’ve wanted to avoid, and there is no escape but to look at it. And let me tell you, Creator will send clients to wake practitioners up. One cannot be a healing practitioner without a willingness to look at your own truth and history. It is the practitioner’s responsibility to clear their fears and look at their triggers so not to interfere with their client’s work. And this is true with general healings…if you fear a disease or condition, you won’t see it and/or may hold up another’s healing in witnessing it. Vianna said the practitioner is 93-96% responsible for whether a client gets better.
And many past lives could be deep genetic memories, land memories, group conscious memories or symbolic. You can hear a past life coming up in a digging that really needs to be worked with when:
1. It has to do with alien abduction in this life, and the contract needs to be tracked to when the person decided they needed to be punished or felt guilty to allow for the abduction in the first place (usually good to check Atlantis or ancient Egypt)
2. There is a definite contract from another time that needs to be looked at and cleared. It's still important to see how it has affected this lifetime and change the patterns and beliefs as well.
3. There is a connection with a person or situation that is charged in this lifetime which feels not from this time, with a different juxtaposition of characters (like a woman might feel like she was a young boy, or a person might feel like the other connection is characterized or has a role as something s/he isn’t in this life (like a priestess or soldier). The past lifetime story doesn’t match with any experience that would happen in this life yet the pattern in the stories are similar.
The later happened in a recent digging session at the Bishop class. Most participants could hear that the person’s story wasn’t a Now situation. We all listened to the past life story, and then I cleared the pattern in that life. But it was also reflected in the present life, in the client’s childhood, and that’s where the depth of the work could be fully experienced for clearing.
For me, when I don’t see/sense/hear a client fully connecting with themself, that the downloads don’t come in fully or the client won’t let them in, that there is a displacement, fragmentation or splits of the personality, I don’t go into a past life but use Inner Child work. This is about real safety and trust issues towards oneself.
I love it when people say, “But this isn’t real. This is imagination.” Well, guess what? We practice going into Theta, connecting with All-That-Is and using our imagination to bring healings and belief changes into this reality. So what is not real about Inner Child work? We are allowing those very hurt aspects or needs of ourselves that were dissociated out because they couldn’t be dealt with in childhood, and offer a way to regain trust, acceptance and love of ourselves. Creator’s teachings and some belief changes are incorporated to facilitate and support this process. The truth is that self- acceptance and self-realization come first before we fully embrace God realization. 90% of our beliefs have to do with our relationship to God/Creator which means that working on the Inner child and on beliefs around God, which get mixed up with authority figures, are going to clear up a great deal of our issues. My book, Moving Beyond, gives a good background in how to incorporate the Inner Child work into sessions.
And this approach around connecting to the Inner Child doesn’t need to be used for all people or for all issues, like a broken arm that needs healing (unless there is a pattern of having repeated accidents which then can often be traced to childhood). For those with lighter issues (not heavy emotional abuse), the inner child will show up easily… both the adult and Inner Child want to connect, accept and love each other already, and their beliefs clear without much depth work. Some people just come in for a quick clean-up and can hear their patterns quickly. In fact, some people will just change beliefs in listening to themselves and their patterns in the digging process. Sometimes it’s a big comedy show when they get how they created their beliefs.
Now back to the sky…not the clouds… but a tunnel of transformation between May 20th solar eclipse and this upcoming partial full moon eclipse on June 4th and then Venus eclipsing the Sun on June 5-6th. This Venus eclipse conjunct Sun, which happened in 2004, will not happen again for 121 years. We are in very special times, like walking across a bridge between the worlds.
Astrologically, Venus represents our relationships, a deeper honesty and communication with others, the heart, a higher spiritual love, the feminine side of our being, our individuality, our true creativity awakening, heightened intuitive awareness of our hidden emotions and desires. Whenever Venus eclipsed the Sun in past recorded history, there was a major breakthrough in communications. [Oh, I look forward to this!]
According to Govinda’s Spiritual and Astrological Guidance blog, “The world needs creative solutions, feminine guidance and love in order to heal. These energies will continue to increase during this period. Venus represents the heart and the feminine side of our being. The Sun represents our individuality and the masculine side of our being. Venus aligning with the Sun is symbolic of our Feminine (Anima) and Masculine (Animus) energies coming into unity and balance. Venus eclipsing (in front of) the Sun symbolizes our need to consider the feminine expression first, before the masculine, and to allow the feminine energies to guide and balance masculine expression.” http://www.astrologywithgovinda.com/past-articles/Venus-Transits-Divine-Feminine.htm
My personal astrologer, Tosha Silver wrote, “…certain events that were hidden and subterranean may well become resolved or at least visible by the Full Moon June 4th. No need to ‘push’; much will come to light of its own volition at least by then. This process will bring the externalized shifts you have been awaiting…especially if you move with the flow, letting it do its work. Old out worn patterns, habits, relationships, attachments, lifestyles may be being shed like a windstorm of dry autumn leaves. Let them go! And let what wants to come, to absolutely, unreservedly, whole-heartedly come.”
So I say, “Bring it on… in the highest and best way…and let me flow like whipping cream spread on a birthday cake. (I guess my granddaughter’s 2nd birthday on the 17th sent me that image…she’s all about love and bringing life on).
Wishing you grounded-ness, clarity and resolution in these awakening shifts,
Loving Prayers go out to Kenney Scruggs, family and friends in her passing on May 30th. Kenney had mustered her strength and perseverance to graduate from the Basic Theta Workshop in Bishop on May 6th. After class, in a private session, her courage to open up to a deep truth before she passed was shared with her close friends as a spiritual awakening. To her family, friends and partner..."The reality of my life cannot die for I am indestructible consciousness."~ Paramahansa Yoganada
Blind Teenager Learns to See Using his Ears
Even though Ben lost his eyesight to cancer at 2 years old, his mother’s love and support helped him learn to use echolocation to ‘see’. Ben learned to ‘see’ life through his ears. This is the ability that bats and dolphins to sense the world around them. An inspiring story!
Bladder Tumor Disappears in Three Minutes
Greg Braden shows a video of how, in a medicine-less hospital in China, a woman’s 3” bladder disappears in 3 minutes using a word that signifies “It is done.” Amazing!
Chinese Physicists Break Teleportation record
Teleportation is real. Using powerful lasers and optics to manipulate photons, or units of light, researchers in China set a record for teleporting a photon more than 10 miles. Quantum teleportation, which has been around since 1997, is a little different than what you see in sci-fi movies. Teleportation is the ability [to] move one object from one place to another without traversing the space in between. The actual object is not moving from point A to point B. Rather, the distant photon mirrors the information contained by the original photon, essentially becoming an identical twin.
You should know that there are serious risks involved with taking these drugs, a fact that even the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now acknowledging following an internal meeting between the FDA's Office of Surveillance and Epidemiology and Office of New Drugs.…liver damage, memory loss, muscle weakness, depletion of CoQu10 and Type 2 diabetes.
How chemicals affect us
Scientists are observing with increasing alarm that some very common hormone-mimicking chemicals can have grotesque effects. These days there is also growing evidence linking this class of chemicals to problems in humans…endocrine disruptors. These include breast cancer, infertility, low sperm counts, genital deformities, early menstruation and even diabetes and obesity.
Environmental Working Group-Scientists with ethics-Nine myths about sunscreens
The FDA’s 2011 sunscreen rules allow sunscreen makers to advertise that using their products can decrease the risk of skin cancer and sun-related skin aging. But a wide range of public health agencies – including the FDA – have found very little evidence that sunscreen prevents most types of skin cancer. In reviewing the evidence, the FDA said that the available clinical studies “do not demonstrate that even [broad spectrum products with SPF greater than 15] alone reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging.” The agency also said that it is “not aware of any studies examining the effect of sunscreen use on the development of melanoma.”
Top Healthier Sunscreens by EWG
The best sunscreen is a hat and a shirt. No chemicals for the skin to absorb, no questions about whether the product works, no bogus claims like “sunblock.” (No conventional product blocks out all rays. That’s why the FDA is trying to ban the term. ) But when you can’t avoid exposing your skin to the sun, use EWG’s Sunscreen Guide to find top-rated sunscreens with broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection but fewer hazardous chemicals that penetrate the skin. U.S. sunscreen makers are seeking FDA approval for UVA-screening chemicals approved for use in the European market. In the meantime, all of EWG’s top-rated products contain either zinc or titanium minerals to filter UVA rays.
WEIGHT and DIETS
The Hidden Reasons You Get Flabby-The Diet Myth
Diet myths abound in the health industry, but one of the biggest myths of all is the idea that a calorie is a calorie, no matter where you get it from, or what the chemical or nutritional makeup of it. Fructose is 'isocaloric but not isometabolic." This means you can have the same amount of calories from fructose or glucose, fructose and protein, or fructose and fat, but the metabolic effect will be entirely different despite the identical calorie count. Eight primary diseases related to metabolic dysfunction include type 2 diabetes, hypertension, lipid problems, heart disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, polysystic ovarian syndrome, cancer, and dementia. Obesity is a marker for all of them, and these eight diseases account for a staggering 75 percent of the healthcare costs in the US. Now, a new video, the "Skinny on Obesity", presents a chilling awakening on weight, weight gain, and chronic diseases like dementia, cancer, and non-alcoholic fatty liver.
Calorie awareness and the Dangers of sugar
The source of the calories you consume makes all the difference in the world. They discovered that it's the increase in total fats and carbohydrates specifically that's causing the massive weight gain in people around the world. What's more, there's just ONE food on Earth that, because of its unique composition, metabolizes in your body as both fat and carbohydrate—and that product is sugar. Sugar is the only calorie source that correlates with the increase in diabetes. In 1985, when the world-wide sugar consumption was 98 million tons, diabetes affected 30 million people. By 2010, sugar consumption had risen to 160 million tons, and global diabetes prevalence reached 346 million people.
