March 2009 [Don't forget to Spring forward your clocks on Sunday March 8th]
Hi: I didn’t hear from anyone in volunteering to write an article so we can work as a community in being involved with ThetaHealing for these newsletters. It would be really wonderful to have contributors, because I’m not going to be spending the time that I use to in creating these newsletters. I just happened to have this article written from a few months ago so the topic will be about instaneous/spontaneous healings.
There was an article on a health internet site over a year ago about a researcher’s healing journey in working with a medical intuitive. I assumed that he had cancer. No, the intuitive was not a ThetaHealer, but my interest was not in who this researcher chose as his practitioner. What I found fascinating was the questions that appeared for him to answer about his life and condition. The questions are what we use in ThetaHealing… what Vianna calls “starting at the end result” to get to the key beliefs the fastest. This got me thinking about the beliefs that could possibly be extracted from his story and then, which of Creator’s teachings would best support the changes (though this man certainly did a good job of contributing to the awareness of his own process). It’s just that ThetaHealing can be so fast in getting the client to their key beliefs.
I also found the perception of a spontaneous healing by the medical intuitive quite interesting. Though different in how it appears to many ThetaHealers in viewing a spontaneous or instaneous healing, the place where it occurs is the same—“a place where healing exists for all of us”. The medical intuitive also implied that if the client isn’t able to step into a spontaneous healing completely, then they won’t heal. Sometimes people feel that they need or want a series of healings to be fully well. Every healing counts.
In the February 2008 back issue, http://www.thetadnaactivation.com/February08.htm, there is a helpful list of questions on how to discern the Motivations in having a Disease. Feel free to use it at anytime.
There is also another website that helps formulate questions “Metaphor & Symbolic Modeling" which helps phrase questions to ask during digging. http://www.cleanlanguage.co.uk/articles/articles/89/1/Metaphor--Symbolic-Modelling-For-Coaches/Page1.html
Below is the researcher’s abbreviated story with the beliefs and teachings that I perceived or created from his process. I hope they will help you when you work with clients in being present to their stories and in working with yourself. You are certainly welcome to formulate your own as well as use these lists to dig and clear your own issues around health.
Blessings in healing,
I recalled the many cases I had heard or read about, or had even seen myself, of spontaneous healings. Why not me? My friend then asked a crucial question: “What will you do when you are totally well? How would you be?” And that stunned me because I realized I hadn’t let go of my sense that my body had disease. I wasn’t really envisioning total wellness for my body even though I knew that it would do its best to respond to the thought of total health if I stayed focused on that.
I have what it takes to be healed instantly
I know what total wellness and health feels like in my body
I know what it feels like and how to be completely balanced and healthy on a daily basis
I treat my body different than how I treat my emotions
I love my body
I know what it feels like to be truly who I am in every circumstance
I have to experience disease… to grow…to learn my lessons…to show I can overcome adversity…to prove my resiliency…to prove my courage…to prove endurance
Healing has to be a process.
Positive change has to take a long time to occur…to integrate
I have to understand what the condition means to me before I can let it go
Had the condition become such a friend that I was in some way holding onto it? Was I attached to it as a sort of badge, making me special, giving me something unique to have to do? Is illness that which, as a powerless child, I used to get my needs for rest and attention met by the powerful parent? Had I brought that habit into adulthood? Was I staying committed to a current condition, no matter how uncomfortable, by overly identifying myself with ailing aspects of my past self? I found myself arranging, predetermining who or what I would be tomorrow, based on those previous circumstances, when really I wanted to change some or all of them. I would say, “I have this illness,” as if it was a possession; such a statement is subtle, but it’s a message to the subconscious self.
I have to be special to God/Creator (or others) to receive a spontaneous healing
I have Creator’s understanding of being special
Creator forgets me
There is enough healing for everyone.
My condition serves me
My condition makes me special and unique
I can accept my special-ness without having to display it
I need sickness… to be unique…to feel proud of what I’ve accomplished
I can only get rest and relaxation if I’m sick
My parents are more powerful than me
My parents are like God to me or My parents represent God to me
I have Creator’s understanding of power
I know what it feels like and how to be power in my own life
I know the difference between God/Creator and my parents
I always get sick when… my family visits …when I feel overwhelmed
I own my sickness… to know I’m worthy of something in life
My sickness owns me
It’s my karma to be sick.
It’s easier to commit to my sickness then commit to the Truth of the situation
I need the past to create my future
I had to learn to begin to say, “I see evidence of this condition; it’s from the past, but I heartily plan to continue to do everything I can to improve now,” and then focus one hundred percent on a new life story. As the medical intuitive has said, “We often create barriers to a natural state of health and healing by not knowing what else to do.”
Illness is the strongest motivator for me
I have Creator’s understanding of what it feels like to change any condition that is unserving in the H & B way
I know how to allow Creator to change any condition that is unserving in the H & B way
I trust Creator to change any condition that is unserving in the H & B way
I allow Creator to change any condition that is unserving in the H & B way
I know what my passion is and how to create it
I’d be lost…purposeless… w/o something to heal
"Are you ready to let go of the condition?” I knew that if I wanted the healing, I had the responsibility to let go or I would not allow a healing to take place; I had to change my identity to that of someone who has no disease, and open myself to experimenting with life as a totally well person. Often we feel a sense of self-importance and get some kind of attention, either from self or others, from our diseases.
I know how to release what is unserving in the highest and best way.
I am safe to release what is unserving in the highest and best way.
My identity, as being sick, serves me
My identity has to do with my state of health
I know the difference between my identity and who I really am
If I let go of my identity, I will lose myself (who I really am)
My identity makes me worthy of attention
My identity allows me to know who I AM
I know how to get my needs met w/o disease
I know who I am w/o identifying with my ailment/condition
I know how to feel important w/o getting sick
I know how to receive attention w/o getting sick
I fear the future
I use my condition as an excuse to stay in the past
The past is safer than the future
I can let go of my condition… w/o disappointing others…w/o disappointing myself
I will fail my family/friends/partner/myself by showing my strength, courage and ability to change
I will take away my family’s/others purpose to care for me if I heal
Strength, courage and the ability to change is supported within myself……by my family…by others…by Creator
I need struggle in order to be courageous
I know how to be courageous w/o needing sickness
Sickness strengthens the soul’s lessons
I will take away my purpose if I heal
I need to be needed
I know what it is to care for myself w/o needing sickness
I recommitted myself to being in a new way, without disease, no matter how that would bring change into my life. It was a bit disconcerting to me. I felt like I was experimenting with my life, yet I definitely wanted to be in total well being. So I decided to commit to the ongoing adventure of change.
I understand what it is to commit to wellness and health
I understand what the adventure of change feels like
I k now what it feels like and how to live w/o feeling victimized by change
I know how to enjoy each experience I create as I participate in my life in the highest and best way
I understand the choices I have in creating change
I know how to choose the changes that help me to evolve in the highest and best way
Are you ready to accept your healing?” and she awaited my answer.
I was challenged. I knew a healing had occurred in the question—I knew this was a turning point, an opportunity—but I hadn’t expected her question, and it challenged my commitment again.
I looked within my feelings and thoughts, and then I said, “I accept my healing.” I knew being in the new would bring its challenges, and I consciously decided to take the challenges with joy and courage.
I know what it feels like to accept an instant healing fully
I know how to keep an instant healing
I know it feels like to be responsible for the changes I choice to create
I know how to be responsible w/o blaming myself…blaming others…blaming Creator
I know the difference between challenges and struggle
I have Creator’s understanding of the joy of change
I can easily accept what is given to me with discernment
The Medical Intuitive says, “It seems I stop time, and then that affects the one who wants the healing too. I’ve noticed that, when I’m face-to-face with someone who is ready to change, the healing occurs simultaneously with this disappearance of the person’s physical face in front of my eyes. It is as if the person has agreed to enter this zone, or different world, where healing always exists for all of us. When I do not see this ‘disappearance,’ I know the person isn’t willing to enter the zone or receive the healing, because it is an individual’s agreement to change to a healed state that is part of the cause of the disappearing face.”
I know the difference between Creator being the healer and me being the witness.
I know how to be a witness to healings.
I allow Creator to do the healings.
I trust Creator to do the healings
I trust Creator’s healings.
Every healing counts.
I understand the difference between an instaneous healing and a healing
If I stop short of receiving an instaneous healing, I will be unable to heal.
My financial support will be stopped if I heal (disability, gov’t assistance)
I know that Creator of All will fully support me in my new changes in the H & B way
I want to thank everyone who attended the relationship workshop on Valentine's day. It was a packed day with compelling discussions, new awarenesses on how to be in any kind of relationship and areas that need improving. Attempting to pack over 100 Creator's teachings and beliefs along with exercises and converstaions into four hours helped me to see that this could easily be a two day course. In fact, I'm in the process of revamping the workbook. The copywritten relationship workbook will be available for $20 and will keep you busy for quite awhile. In fact, I've been going over the beliefs for myself and found plenty to clear. It's interesting how Creator gave me the beliefs to put in the workbook so it would help me too, and I've been digging on all levels of my life through ThetaHealing for eight years and been into personal growth processes for over 25 years.
The next Paradigm Shifters gathering will be on the Spring Equinox, March 21st, at my home. The Basic is from 11 AM to 1 PM and the Advanced is from 2 to 4. There will be a veg potluck from 1 to 2. The cost is $25 each section or $45 for both if you're an Advanced student/practitioner. Please RSVP no later than March 18th.
(Check out Class Pictures from the last few years at the bottom of workshop page)
All courses are accredited by the ThetaHealing Institute of Knowledge and can be applied toward the Master ThetaHealing program.
There is a discount price for those who wish to review the courses as there are always updates as well as hearing the vast amount of information for the second time.
BIG NEWS!! DNA3 is coming to Northern CA on November 9-13 taught by Eric Brumett, ThetaHealing™ Master. This is the newest level of expansion moving us even more into Quantum mechanics through alignment of three aspects within ourselves. As some of you know, Eric and I are good friends, and I had him come to Santa Rosa to teach the Intuitive Anatomy in July '06. Eric took the DNA3 in January and will be taking the teachers' training in October. For those who have taken the Intuitive Anatomy or plan on doing it this year, you will be able to participate in the DNA3 without having to travel to Idaho Falls. More details will be coming in the next few months but mark your calendar. ThetaHealing™ is continuing to expand as we all clear our beliefs and will eventually include at least four more levels.
Even though Vianna personally invited me to the January workshop, I just felt that the timing wasn't right for me. I did learn the alignment and have been practicing every day. I can feel shifts happening.

Creator of the World’s Smallest Sculptures
Willard Wigan's artwork is so tiny a microscope is needed to view it. He makes small worlds of their own that are almost invisible to the naked eye -- such as a $300,000 sculpture that sits on a pinhead. Under a microscope, you see an elephant carved from a fragment of a single grain of sand. "I have learning difficulties. You know, I can't read or write. But I had to find a way of expressing myself. "I'm trying to prove to the world that nothing doesn't exist. It doesn't matter how big a building is, it's made up of molecules. We ignore the world that we can't see."
A restaurant with no checks
Patrons of Karma Kitchen in Oakland, CA. don't need to fight for the check at the end of a meal. There isn't one. Instead, the "guests" of this restaurant are handed a gold envelope with a handwritten note on the outside that says, "Have a lovely evening." Inside a bookmark-sized card states: "In the spirit of generosity, someone who came before you made a gift of this meal. We hope you will continue the circle of giving in your own way!" The sound bite for this restaurant is that meals cost whatever you want to pay, starting at zero. But the real idea beneath it runs deeper than the cost of a dinner. "This is about creating a shift in perspective," says Mehta. "It's a very simple shift but the shift is fundamental. It is a shift from transaction to trust. From a contract to a compact. From being separate to creating community." The ethos behind "gift economy" activities is to offer goods in the spirit of service with the conviction that the act, if genuine and without strings, will be self-sustaining. Put simply, a service or product is offered with the assumption that the act of giving is its own reward, and that it is likely to generate more giving in an ever-enriching circle. http://www.csmonitor.com/2007/1025/p20s01-ussc.html
Barrio de Paz created in Ecuador gang areas
With a population nearing 3 million, Guayaquil [Ecuador] is home to more than 200 gangs and 60,000 gang youth. But in recent months, this neighborhood has become a Barrio de Paz (“peace town”) under the guidance of Ser Paz, an organization committed to fostering peace in Guayaquil’s violent neighborhoods. Support comes from Nelsa Curbelo, a 66-year-old woman who looks more like a friendly grandmother passing time with neighborhood children than a pioneer of social reform working in the most dangerous city in Ecuador. Curbelo spent almost two years listening to the young people she’d later serve: walking the neighborhoods of Guayaquil alone, sometimes after dark, talking with those who’d talk to her, learning about gangs and impressing the youth with her fearless willingness to be present on their streets. It’s these qualities of presence and acceptance that distinguish Curbelo from others who work with gangs. Instead of dismissing gang culture, she validates the positive elements it inspires: teamwork, commitment, a sense of belonging and quick communication. She refuses to label gang members “delinquents,” and suggests the instinct to come together in “teams” is a positive response by area youth to “a very unfair and unequal society.”

The little stickers on fruits and vegetables have digits that let you know whether they're conventionally grown or organic, and if they're genetically modified (GM). Here’s what you should look for:
• A four-digit number means the produce is conventionally grown
• A five-digit number beginning with 9 means it's organic
• A five-digit number beginning with 8 means it's GM http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/02/21/Are-Your-Supermarket-Plums-Genetically-Modified--Heres-How-to-Find-Out.aspx

Mercury in High Fructose Corn syrup
New research published in Environmental Health and conducted in part by a scientist at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy has revealed that high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is contaminated with the toxic heavy metal mercury. That means that many of the products using HFCS may also be contaminated with mercury--carbonated sodas are sweetened with HFCS, as are candy bars, bread, salad dressings, pizza sauce, fruit drinks and thousands of other grocery items. http://www.naturalnews.com/025442.html
Ten diseases linked to Soda http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/02/10/10-Diseases-Linked-To-Soda.aspx
Third-Hand Smoke… the invisible yet toxic brew of gases and particles clinging to smokers’ hair and clothing, not to mention cushions and carpeting, that lingers long after second-hand smoke has cleared from a room. The residue includes heavy metals, carcinogens and even radioactive materials that young children can get on their hands and ingest, especially if they’re crawling or playing on the floor…. Among the substances in third-hand smoke are hydrogen cyanide, used in chemical weapons; butane, which is used in lighter fluid; toluene, found in paint thinners; arsenic; lead; carbon monoxide; and even polonium-210, the highly radioactive carcinogen that was used to murder former Russian spy Alexander V. Litvinenko in 2006. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/03/health/research/
SCIENCE & HEALING
Regenerative body parts through use of an extra cellular matrix is being used in different hospitals. Doctors and scientists are able to grow custom-made body parts (tissue and organs) that can be implanted into humans. The US military services is helping to fund these projects to support the wounded veterans. Many investors are funding these projects across the nation as it’s a growing new field.
Of Two Minds
Scientists are able to get some idea of what's going on in the mind by using brain scanners. Now it is possible to infer what tiny groups of neurons are up to, not just larger areas of the brain….Last year, Tibetan Buddhist monks ... submitted to functional magnetic resonance imaging as they practiced "compassion meditation," which is aimed at achieving a mental state of pure loving kindness toward all beings. The brain scans showed only a slight effect in novice meditators. But for monks who had spent more than 10,000 hours in meditation, the differences in brain function were striking. Activity in the left prefrontal cortex, the locus of joy, overwhelmed activity in the right prefrontal cortex, the locus of anxiety. Activity was also heightened in the areas of the brain that direct planned motion, as if the monks' brains were itching to go to the aid of those in distress. All of which suggests, say the scientists who carried out the scans, that "the resting state of the brain may be altered by long-term meditative practice." http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/08/magazine/08WWLN.html
Babies Know: A Little Dirt Is Good for You
Ask mothers why babies are constantly picking things up from the floor or ground and putting them in their mouths, and chances are they’ll say that it’s instinctive — that that’s how babies explore the world. But why the mouth, when sight, hearing, touch and even scent are far better at identifying things? Accumulating evidence strongly suggests that eating dirt is good for you. In studies of what is called the hygiene hypothesis, researchers are concluding that organisms like the millions of bacteria, viruses and especially worms that enter the body along with “dirt” spur the development of a healthy immune system. Several continuing studies suggest that worms may help to redirect an immune system that has gone awry and resulted in autoimmune disorders, allergies and asthma. These studies, along with epidemiological observations, seem to explain why immune system disorders like multiple sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma and allergies have risen significantly in the United States and other developed countries. “What a child is doing when he puts things in his mouth is allowing his immune response to explore his environment,” Mary Ruebush, a microbiology and immunology instructor, wrote in her new book, "Why Dirt is Good". http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/27/health/27brod.html
Infant and toddler drowning prevention program: After witnessing the tragic aftermath of the death of a neighbor's child, Dr. Harvey Barnett has dedicated his life to preventing child drownings. His program, called Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) successfully teaches infants and young children how to survive if accidentally submerged in a body of water.

How Technology May Soon "Read" Your Mind
The content of our thoughts is our own - private, secret, and unknowable by anyone else. [But] neuroscience research into how we think and what we're thinking is advancing at a stunning rate, making it possible for the first time in human history to peer directly into the brain to read out the physical make-up of our thoughts, some would say to read our minds. The technology that is transforming what once was science fiction into just plain science is a specialized use of MRI scanning called "functional MRI," fMRI for short. "I always tell my students that there is no science fiction anymore," [said] Paul Root Wolpe, director of the Center for Ethics at Emory University in Atlanta. What [researchers] ... have done is combine fMRI's ability to look at the brain in action with computer science's new power to sort through massive amounts of data. "There are some other technologies that are being developed that may be able to be used covertly and even remotely. They're trying to develop now a beam of light that would be projected onto your forehead. It would go a couple of millimeters into your frontal cortex, and then receptors would get the reflection of that light. And [there are] some studies that suggest that we could use that as a lie detection device. If you were sitting there in the airport and being questioned, they could beam that on your forehead without your knowledge. We can't do that yet, but they're working on it," [Wolpe said]. (remember that what is just becoming public has really been used for quite awhile)
