ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
PRACTICUM ON MARCH 31st
The next Paradigm Shifters gathering will be on Saturday, March 31st. I decided, through a student’s suggestion, to make the practicums with a specific focus. The March topic will be: ‘How to scan the body in wonder and awe”, and “How to ‘hear’ Creator’s teachings in a client’s story so they can be downloaded effectively”.
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, March 28th only if you plan to come . 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.

BLOG FOR THE SOUL
I’m excited that things are really shifting for me in a much gentler way though it’s not March 12th yet (by-the-way, March 11th is Daylight savings time.) What I have been going through for almost a year is finishing up its last clearings as the vibrations are slowly toning down. I feel like the sprouts of tulips ready to surface into the air and sun. There are just so many things that I want to do and yet my astrologer reminded me that there is a divine order to everything. Of course I knew that, but the way she framed it was in such a ‘gentle’ and supportive manner. And besides, I’m still being told within to keep it slowed down. This word must be my theme this month.
In fact, just so I don’t go too fast, a lump developed near the arch of my foot along the medial edge. It basically said to me, “You might feel better, but I’m here to keep you aware of your pace. There is still a bit more to complete.” And believe me, I’ve worked on
issues around pacing myself in depth. But I know, and so does the lump, that there would be a good possibility that I’d out-pace myself, like dancing, which is the first thing I want to do. Obviously, I wouldn’t be using my energy in the wisest way until the transits are complete.
I feel that our Soul, in being part of the physical form and order, has a specific earth time experienced along a timeline (which is not called Divine Timing…this is something entirely different as explained in the Manifestation and Abundance workshop), in how it wants to learn, discover and grow. It makes agreements through the Higher Self to support the physical form, along with its ego attachment, to move through its lessons in a certain timely order and way.
I’m saying this because I’ve had Vianna referee when I was so angry at my Soul for what I perceived was interception of what I, my ego, wanted NOW. I’m sure that the cosmos was laughing at my ridiculously childish temper tantrums that felt very necessary to express at the time. All I could think of was that ‘others’ were manifesting instantly, why not me? Why did I have to be so patient? Why can’t my dreams happen now? I work on my issues all the time. What’s with all of this? Now notice the energy of all this. It’s the “Why me?” syndrome. Hmmm…nothing victim here.
I decided to further the conversation with the lump, and I heard an interesting belief, “If I step into my life, I’ll be unable to keep balance.” I wondered why, and as I dropped in further, I heard, “I’m ahead of my own life, and if I step into it, it would take these leaps without encompassing certain important steps that I need to do first. I wouldn’t have the real skills to integrate what I’ve jumped into. This was valid for me, attempting to make things more cathartic when it needs integration, which really means slowing down has been a good thing for me. The funny thing is that I’ve learned that I can continue to do my inner work with keeping the rest of life to a bare minimum of activities (except working with clients… I’m so grateful that Creator has kept clients flowing into my practice with many referrals), and things on the outside are REALLY re-arranging themselves behind the scenes until I’m ready to “step” into it.
There was a part that also felt like I was skipping what is ‘inbetween’ the moments. I have wanted something so different than what I’ve been experiencing for a year, actually most of my life, that I just wanted to get it over…like Now. It was then that I discovered that I believed the ‘inbetween’ was unimportant and insignificant to me. Creator chimed in, “The Truth is that ‘inbetween’ is a moment’s experience too, so that there is nothing really ‘inbetween’.” Hmmm. I pondered that for a moment. That meant that I was disqualifying part of my process in seeing it separate or broken up as life is just a series of moments. I know this intellectually, but I was feeling into it, and it isn’t how I want to keep my perception in being in this journey of regaining consciousness.
I had Creator teach me:
I know what it feels like for each moment-each consecutive & each simultaneous moment- to be significant to me…w/o being overwhelmed
I know what it feels like to breath into each moment to keep my balance
I release this year's experience from teaching me that my needs can be fully met in any experience I’m having
My needs can be met in any experience I’m having
That I can breathe into what I need in an experience so that each moment becomes a place of manifestation for the highest and best.
This cleared the top belief, and it felt different for me. My breathing changed, and I felt settled into myself. [If you would like these teachings, just say 'Yes" as they have been placed at the 7th Plane.]
The pure beauty of all of this (experience) is that I’m really getting how much I’ve been taken care of beyond what I thought, and I’ve learned to trust myself at such a deep level. Literally, abundance has been happening without doing a thing besides just thinking what I really need for myself in the present or that it would be nice to do this or that when things are complete. So that’s what I want to talk about also …manifestation and abundance…clearing, trusting and it happening without much effort.
So what happened for me recently? About a month ago, a friend/former student was speaking to a group in another part of California who had just been introduced to the ThetaHealing basic book. Everyone was so excited after participating in a few Introduction talks and private sessions by my friend that they wanted an Instructor to teach it. My friend suggested me.
At the same time, unbeknowest to me in what was happening there, I was thinking that when I’m able to teach again, it would be so awesome if someone just set up a workshop where I could ‘step’ into it and teach...my dream of the ‘effortless’ reality. It’s happened twice before so I knew it was possible. Both times, the hostesses were part of my soul family (nothing like the soul family to be there when the ‘order’ is right).
I didn’t think about it again, but obviously it must have been a mini-manifestation (that’s why it’s important to watch one’s thoughts and cancel them if they are negative), because less than a week later I get a call from an acupuncturist who hosts seminars in this area for big name shamans and healers, and asked if I would like to come and teach the Basic and possibly more. We had a really good connection, and she felt like someone I might know (soul family energy).
Not only that, she had all the people basically ready to sign up and take it, and I just needed to give her a date that worked for me as they would have wanted it as soon as possible. In other words, everything was already set in action. The class would be a sold-out event as this group appreciates the energy of those they have taken workshops with already. I set the date in May. My friend will be my traveling companion and my assistant having helped me several times before; and in him knowing the group, it makes it much easier for me. To top it off, I’m also being supported and set-up to be a continuing education provider (CE’s) for acupuncture and possibly MFT and chiropractors. I just had told my business team that I didn’t have the energy or time to put into researching this for the ThetaHealing School of CA., and now, perhaps, the school might have an easy way to be a provider too.
To add honey to the nectar (instead of oil to fire… “the times they are a’changin”), my ‘Moving Beyond’ book is really spreading with so many comments of how it’s been helping the ThetaHealing community and their clients, and that people would really like a workshop. I’ve had a workshop outline and curriculum ready since last August which I gave to Vianna, but she has been very busy traveling and hasn’t had time to go over it. (I honestly don’t know how she does all that she does.) But she did tell me twice that she definitely wants to read and consider it. I trust that the timing will be perfect, because I sure wouldn’t have been ready last year. (Funny how all this works).
So with all this, I’m relaxing more into my body, feeling into my life differently and knowing that things are unfolding even if I do nothing but be present in my daily life. Simplicity works for me.
This brings me back to some tips in manifesting and why it might seem it’s not working and what helps us to remember what we need to do in being who we are to move the process along:
1. Make sure that you KNOW that you can create what you want. If you don’t know this, dig on it. Teach yourself, “I know that it’s possible to create what I want; I’m safe to create what I want; I know what I want to create”… and really know what that is. Re-check them and dig it out if you doubt yourself or have fear.
2. Imagine and visualize what you want as you say to yourself, “If money weren’t a problem, I would create _______.” Step into that fully and see, feel, taste, hear, smell experience this. If you feel blocked, work on it. It often goes back to childhood issues. The first and second chakra have so much to do around financial abundance, and if they are full of sub/unconscious beliefs or trauma, it will hold up your manifestations.
Also, when you get to a certain level of manifesting, it becomes more than yourself. We start doing it for the good of the whole. “What can I bring forth from myself that will help not only me, but others? And this comes when we are clear of our own personal needs and not putting everyone else first. Make sure you are a priority in your own life without feeling guilty or selfish. Make sure you don’t compromise yourself, ever! You always want to come from a place of consensus.
3. Look at what gets in your way… what fears come up when you create what you want as an imaginative process? Are you doing it alone and you want someone there to do it with you, like a Soul Mate or a team of like-minded people? Is your health in your way? Are you afraid that you’ll be overwhelmed? What would your family think if you created this? Would you have regrets if you had all that you wanted to create? If so, clear it until you can walk into the manifestation feeling fully deserving and that it’s yours in being who you.
4. Is your Higher Self and Soul telling you that you need to accomplish or complete certain things before you are ready for your next chapter to receive the manifestation? Are you wanting a partner but you need to do something first to allow that partner to come through at the level that your Soul wants you to be? Are you wanting a full clientele but your health has been teetering on the brink, or are you a workaholic? Do you set boundaries for yourself that are respectful? Do others disregard and take advantage of you and you do nothing to rectify this?
Most people can’t get a college degree unless they have finished other levels of education. This is the same as we clear beliefs. Once we clear certain levels of beliefs, our being is shifted to a new level of consciousness and then we can more easily and instantly manifest in particular areas of our life in the highest and best way.
The real truth is that we are manifesting in every thought we think. Thank God all those ‘negative’ thoughts don’t manifest instantly because of the filter of the Higher Self. But they could and will the more we clear as it raises our vibration faster thus manifestation happens faster. That is why we are learning to be present with our thoughts in being here at this time. Remember the 'New Living Experiment' in the Basic workshop? Work with it. Being true, conscious co-creators takes focus and training.
“Only when your consciousness is totally focused on the moment you are in, can you receive whatever gift, lesson, or delight that moment has to offer.” ~Barbara De Angelis
“What we truly and earnestly aspire to be, that in some sense we are. The mere aspiration, by changing the frame of the mind, for the moment realizes itself.”~ Anna Brownell Jameson
Blessings in gently manifesting and co-creating yourself moment by moment,

Arsenic in Brown Rice Syrup and other rice and baby products
If you're shopping organic and see brown rice syrup listed first among ingredients, you may want to think twice. That product could have high levels of potentially toxic arsenic, Dartmouth researchers reported today. Jackson and his colleagues also reported elevated arsenic levels in some baby formulas, brown rice, brown rice-sweetened cereal bars, energy bars and energy "shots" consumed by endurance athletes, according to a study published today in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives As Americans consume more rice-containing foods, they're unknowingly ingesting more arsenic, he cautioned. He pointed out that they're buying more organic packaged foods, more gluten-free products made from rice instead of wheat flour, and choosing foods sweetened with organic brown rice syrup because of the buzz they've heard linking high-fructose corn syrup and obesity.
The Dangers of Improperly Prepared Whole Grains-Phytic Acid
Laurel Blair, in Sonoma County, CA. is a Nutritional Therapist and a ThetaHealing student. She has a great website with health food tips. Since I gave information on brown rice above, I thought it appropriate to share solid advice on the issues with whole grains in general, and the need to remove phytic acid from them before eating. Phytic acid binds to several minerals making it unavailable to the body. It is found most abundantly in the bran or outer hull of bean, nuts, seeds and grains with a lesser amount in certain fruits, vegetables, and tubers. For more indepth information, please check her website.
The Myth of the Eight Hour Sleep
In 2001, historian Roger Ekirch of Virginia Tech published a seminal paper, drawn from 16 years of research, revealing a wealth of historical evidence that humans used to sleep in two distinct chunks.His book At Day's Close: Night in Times Past, published four years later, unearths more than 500 references to a segmented sleeping pattern - in diaries, court records, medical books and literature, from Homer's Odyssey to an anthropological account of modern tribes in Nigeria.
