ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
The next Paradigm Shifters gathering will be Saturday October 13th from 11 to 1 PM. Bring an organic potluck dish to share (attempt to make it w/o sugar if possible). The specific focus for this month is fears (to go along with Halloween month concentrating on issues around the unknown) how to really dig them out and come back to yourself at a calm ground zero as well as beliefs on healing and being a healing practitioner. Be ready to brainstorm and clear issues. (email for directions). The cost is $25. Please RSVP no later than Wednesday, October 10th. 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.
Due to the fact that I will be moving next month (though still in Sonoma county), my teaching schedule is not ready to be finalized. I'm considering doing the Advanced on December 14th -16th, and Manifestation and Abundance on January 26-27th. Let me know your interest.
April 20-21st 2013 Manifestation and Abundance in Bishop, CA.
Contact Marla Gabriel for information firstname.lastname@example.org, 760-873-9070
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
Do you feel like you’ve completed or are starting a great deal in the last 3 years (relationships, projects, home, family etc) particularly these past few months? Well Saturn is leaving Libra on October 5th. My astrologer, Tosha Silver, said, “Saturn brings the oddest blessings, especially at the END of her transit. So if you cooperated, this pain-laced but fruitful transit jettisoned old toxic patterns that kept the authentic Self in hock, it anchored you in a true sense of self-worth where you now know what you deserve. And you learned how to take care of yourself in a real way without playing victim or persecutor. If those lessons were embraced, whole new ties will emerge in their own way over the next months. And they don't just fall from the sky. They're born from a new vibration you hold so will naturally arise if you wish them as Saturn finishes Libra."
In the last 3 years, I taught 24 ThetaHealing workshops, witnessed the birth of two of my grandchildren, wrote a book, started a business with others, went through a Kundalini experience, traveled to Italy, had a physical death experience, brought a new aspect of myself into my being, traveled to teach in Bishop, CA (8 hours away), resigned from the business, sold my home, traveled to teach in Bishop, CA and will buy a new house soon (real soon). No small accomplishments for me…nope, my Soul has big plans. I had another psychic I connected with tell me that I’m going to be going from 0 to 387 miles/hour anytime, and it’s revving up now. I’m just praying it’s not so dramatic in the coming years…great writing material though. I think it took writing this just to see how much change I’ve been through.
What I want to focus on in this article is really about lessons in trust and letting go, both with myself and with Creator-of-All. It’s a perfect timing in Saturn leaving Libra’ experience which came to its next level around selling my house…a quick drama in itself. I say quick because I was on flight to Idaho Falls to study World Relations Instructors (for the second time… fabulous course…how to be world emissaries by clearing resentments, anger, hate, grudges feeling offended by all religions, cults, countries, ethnic groups, and types of people) when my house had two bids on it within 6 hours. I had not slept much in the two days prior because I was cleaning my house to go on the market, packing, and then people were looking at the house while I had a bad case of the runs.
My house didn’t like one of the bidders. I personally wanted to sell my house, my friend of 19 years, to the family it wanted, the other bidder. My daughter reminded me to stay with my heart. And I was willing to go lower on price for the family to have it, but there were some logistics that didn’t seem to work in the family’s favor as they made a decision that came too late. I thought, for sure, that I was going to totally disappoint my house, like how could I show my face to it again, when I returned, in not giving it what it wanted in all that it had done for me. Just like pets, houses have consciousness too.
I have to tell you that I did a great deal of belief work, downloading my house to help it see the other person as a spark of Creator too, talked with Creator, talked to several friends and a support group about it. Over and over I heard that the house wouldn’t be angry at me, that it could hold space for this other person. This person manifested for it too. All this was happening as I had just landed in Idaho and had until 7:30 that night to make a decision.
I realized that I was still seeing my house as a young child as I bought it when it was 5 years old. I didn’t want to leave it with someone who would abuse it. Not that this was true, but that’s where my unconscious mind went to in feeling it. The house and I grew up and did so much healing together. Everyone who came to the house felt its peacefulness and calmness—there was a great amount of healing energy in the structure of my home. People knew I loved it. And I knew it loved me. But the time to move on was clear, and we both knew it. The house had served its purpose as my protector, space keeper, security, and sanctuary of many years. It is 24 years old now… old enough to hold space for another with all of Creator’s teachings and clearings I gave it throughout the years.
You can understand why the bathroom was becoming the most frequented facility during that time...I had to let go of the apron strings and allow the house to have its own relations with others. My real estate agent, knowing me well, just held space for my process and told me that this is emotional for many people. I signed the contract with the first bidder. My agent repeatedly told me that under the circumstances, it was the best decision, and I could just leave it in God’s hands.
I woke up the next morning in deep regret. I called my agent crying. And interestingly, she was going to tell me that a possibility opened that the family might be able to have the house. The issue that appeared the day before changed for them, and even though I signed a contract with the first person, there was an addendum we forgot to add that was actually in the buyer’s favor. If the Buyer attempted to add that to the contract, we could reject it, and the contract could be canceled. The family could then have the house. I was told to let go of attachment to the outcome, so I prayed that the highest and best would happen for all concerned as I had done all I could on my end.
By 4 PM that day, the person and their agent met to discuss the issue and decided not to change anything on the contract. My agent supportively said it was out of my hands, to see that I did what was necessary, and this was what was meant to be. So I just accepted that the person was the one who manifested for it the strongest. I had already gone through my run of emotions so I could just let go.
The inspection was the last piece for acceptance of the contract; and due to the fact that I wasn’t in town when the inspection first occurred, it couldn’t be completed because the crawlspace was inaccessible, hiding under the stairwell covered by stereo equipment and record albums. Part two had to be rescheduled later. After finally finding a time I would be home, not working and available to let the inspector crawl under the house, it was complete. Or so I thought.
Meanwhile, I went house hunting on the weekend after I returned to California. In my organized way, I had a list of 12 places I wanted to see. I knew that if the house sold quickly, then there was a coordination and synchronicity that would happen next. As I had no contingency in selling, like needing to find a place first, I just trusted that I would find the house which was waiting for me to be its next companion. Though the 12 places were reduced to three as they were either short sales or contingency of the homeowner moving, the first house I went to first had exactly what I wanted and was in a development where all the names of the streets were gemstones. And this house was a stone I really love. It had a red door and sign above it about healing, faith and trust, it had the wood floors, and 4 bedrooms I wanted and a place to garden with a shed. There was an area that could be used for detoxifying or exercise. And I had three other bidders to hold my own if it was meant to be for me. I wasn’t attached when I sent the bid in that day. I just trusted that if this didn’t work, Creator would take care of me. After all I went through last April, I kept feeling to trust this process. Things aren't always in the way and timing I want but afterwards, I see that it was for the best.
Three days later, as the physical contingency on my home was released by the buyer so that there were no more obstacles to complete escrow, I also learned that the ‘gemstone’ house owner decided that though my bid and another were almost identical, the house was sold to the family with children particularly for that reason. I found it so interesting because that is what I wanted to do for my house too. So I felt all was well in just moving on with my search for ‘that house for me.’
My intuitive sense is that in completing teaching the Advanced class in Bishop and then Saturn moving into Scorpio on the 6th, that house is just ready to hug me and me it. I can feel it, and it’s just a matter of earthly time catching up with the feeling that is part of my being.
How much are you willing to let go to receive the abundance and destiny that is yours?
Check these beliefs. You can also say, “Yes” to have them downloaded to you from the 7th Plane (I placed them there). Recheck after. If you still have them, take some time to dig them out.
I know what it feels like to trust All-That-Is to give me what I need particularly in my Divine timing (destiny event).
I am given what I need to fulfill my destiny in the perfect timing and the perfect way through All-That-Is
I know what it feels like to acknowledge the markers/synchronicities/divine or auspicious connections in fulfilling my destiny.
I trust that All-That-Is will guide me to my next step in being conscious of moving towards my destiny.
I am safe to let go of what I think I have to have for what truly fits for me in the Divine plan.
I’m willing to let go of what I think I have to have for what truly fits for me in the Divine plan.
In gratitude for this process called life,

The Untapped Healing Power of Smiling
An intriguing UC Berkeley 30-year longitudinal study that examined the smiles of students in an old yearbook, and measured their well-being and success throughout their lives. By measuring the smiles in the photographs the researchers were able to predict: how fulfilling and long lasting their marriages would be, how highly they would score on standardized tests of well-being and general happiness, and how inspiring they would be to others. The widest smilers consistently ranked highest in all of the above. Surprisingly, we’re actually born smiling. 3-D ultrasound technology now shows that developing babies appear to smile even in the womb… children, who smile as many as 400 times per day! http://wakeup-world.com/2012/02/03/the-untapped-power-of-smiling/
Incredible Wooden Chip Artwork
Look at those furry-looking animal sculptures, it is still hard for us to believe they are actually made of Wooden Chip. Created by Artist Sergey Bobkov, 54, he made below life-sized sculptures from cutting chips from the Siberian cedar for an exhibition of his works in a local school at Kozhany, southwest of Krasnoyarsk. http://www.designswan.com/archives/incredible-wooden-chip-artwork-by-sergey-bobkov.html
New family of spiders
Amateur cave explorers have found a new family of spiders in the Siskiyou Mountains of Southern Oregon, and scientists have dubbed it Trogloraptor — Latin for cave robber — for their fearsome front claws. The spelunkers sent specimens to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, which has the West Coast's largest collection of spiders. Entomologists there say the spider — reddish brown and the size of a half dollar — evolved so distinctly that it requires its own taxonomic family — the first new spider family found in North America since the 1870s.
'Severe abnormalities' found in Fukushima butterflies
Scientists found an increase in leg, antennae and wing shape mutations among butterflies collected following the 2011 Fukushima accident. The link between the mutations and the radioactive material was shown by laboratory experiments, they report.
Crows are capable of human-style reasoning
New Caledonian crows can reason about hidden mechanisms, or “causal agents,” a team of scientists report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It’s the first time that this cognitive ability has been experimentally demonstrated in a species other than humans in what is called causal reasoning.
RELIGION and AFTERLIFE
Cosmist: The “Third Way” for an Afterlife for Atheists
Cosmism is one of those “third ways” that are often passionately rejected by those who believe in the old ways, but in my opinion it is a Hegelian synthesis of what is good in the old ways: it is firmly based on science, and at the same time it offers all the important mental devices of religion, including hope in resurrection. Hoping in an afterlife has survival value for both individuals and societies, because it gives people the strength to continue to live instead of withdrawing (or worse) in despair.
Reincarnation as a Plausible Explanation
Dr. Robert Almeder, an instructor at Georgia State University, wrote the introduction to Chris Carter’s new book Science and the Afterlife Experience, from Inner Traditions/Bear & Co., and he speaks with Dr. Ian Stevensen’s research at the Univ. of Virginia on cases in which the data seems to point to reincarnation as a plausible explanation. Rather than scoffing and dismissing this outright, Dr. Almeder presents a provocative argument for why such investigations fit very soundly within the scientific milieu. http://www.disinfo.com/2012/09/reincarnation-as-a-plausible-explanation/
The Gospel of Jesus’ wife
A historian of early Christianity at the Harvard Divinity School has identified a Papyrus fragment in the Coptic language that she says contains the first known statement saying Jesus was married. The fragment also refers to a female disciple.
New Zealand Grants a River the Rights of Personhood
In a landmark case for the Rights of Nature, officials in New Zealand recently granted the Whanganui, the nation’s third-longest river, with legal personhood “in the same way a company is, which will give it rights and interests”. The decision follows a long court battle for the river’s personhood initiated by the Whanganui River iwi, an indigenous community with strong cultural ties to the waterway. The country “…recognises the status of the river as Te Awa Tupua (an integrated, living whole) and the inextricable relationship of iwi with the river is a major step towards the resolution of the historical grievances of Whanganui iwi and is important nationally.
