BLOG FOR THE SOUL
It’s been quite a summer completing my responsibilities in organizing two homes in Kalispell, MT. where the ThetaHealing Institute is now located. I took on this responsibility for a couple reasons…I initially wanted affordable housing for myself and some of my friends. This grew to include the ThetaHealing community. It seemed wise, at the time, to make some extra money so I could take off the month of July to write another book for ThetaHealers on extreme trauma and abuse, and wanted supplemental income so I could afford to do this.
I was quite challenged between negotiating with the owner of the homes, who I liked personally but who had different values and motivations than I did with the ability to change rules at any point, with the needs, communication styles and relational issues of the guests from all over the world. I’ve been a landlord but not a mediator for 13 individuals with different cultures and countries arriving sometimes weekly. There were obvious virtues to be learned.
With a goal around wanting to be transparent and open to communicate, (and without needing to go into all the details of the many things that occurred), what hit me the strongest was that my reputation had been threatened as a ThetaHealer, and there was gossiping ‘behind' my back. I had stayed at both residences so I was well aware of the drawbacks and pluses of the homes, but in attempting to bring very affordably-priced housing in an extremely expensive area to a group of people I cared about, even if I didn’t know them all personally, I think that some people had different expectations than what was written on the application, and some of those were valid. And I was caught in the middle attempting to mediate and negotiate between the needs of the guests and those of the owner, and sometimes between the guests. If a situation didn't come to an agreed negotiation around the guests' expectations or needs, then this was sometimes brought back to the community, and the rooms wouldn't be rented, which is what happened the last two weeks of classes. Part of my contract in order to be the organizer was that I had to pay the owner in what wasn't rented. Gulp!
When I walked into Planes of Existence class in mid-September, the energy could be ‘cut with a knife’ as some people I knew wouldn’t acknowledge or talk to me. This was an observation and a feeling, but in asking some that would converse, it was alluded that the housing issues became about me. This was without the guests really knowing all that had ensued.
Vianna, in her intuitiveness, could feel it too. The Planes of Existence class is about understanding the depth and philosophy of ThetaHealing. It gets us aligned to what is needed to spiritually advance. Our first exercise in class was so profoundly supportive of this. We were to clear our issues around gossiping, whether receiving it or giving it. Vianna reminded us that our goal was to achieve virtues to evolve, and we’re here to help change the world. This can’t be done if we are gossiping. Blaming others or gossiping blocks accountability.
Some cultures gossip more than others...this becomes a ‘normal’ way to communicate and to feel connected. How often can we tell ourselves that we have never said to a friend, “I’m going to tell you something, but don’t tell the other person”? Or “Did you hear that Aunt Tia had an affair?” or whatever story seemed ripe to spread? What are these elements or motivations in using gossip that are different from truth-sharing, whistleblowing, news, anonymity and confidentiality.
Gossip isn’t common knowledge. It can be information that is said privately and leaked from a source that was present and then passed to others who seem to want to take part in propagating this type of communication style. Gossip is often personal opinions stated as truth which are directed at others to control, shame, disqualify, berate, get back at (revenge), or denigrate another’s character or life (character assassinations). The gossiper assumes what the actions, intentions or motives of another is without necessarily participating in what happened, not knowing the overview nor taking ownership of what occurred. It can include lies about a person and false information which are often added to inflame the situation, or as a protective mechanism…it increases the boundaries between us and another by the use of revenge. This moves the energy into malicious rumors, which can cause reputations to be ruined.
What is the difference, then, between gossip and anonymity/confidentiality, truthsharing, and news? Anonymity is not revealing the identity and maintaining the privacy of a person known or unknown, while confidentiality is maintaining the privacy by non-disclosure of information. So anonymity and confidentiality work hand-in-hand…they both hold sacred or private for another to feel free to reveal or process. It’s what is necessary in many healing professions like therapy, 12 Step groups, different healing modalities including ThetaHealing.
Truth-sharing involves personal experience and feelings revealed through an observational mode of explaining what occurred. There is a personal connection to a situation through different sources. That doesn’t mean that emotions can’t arise, but it’s referred back to one's experiences, ownership of what is brought up…a way to bounce off our personal experience in what is brought to the surface. There may be names attached to the situation or to those involved if there is crime or repressed memory clearing. But whoever is listening either needs to hold the information in confidentiality and anonymity or has agreed to do this until the truth-sharer wants something different.
News is information that is reported which is available to the general public or within the realms of certain fields or family situations like cousin Betsy had twins, or there was a breakthrough in restoring water that had been polluted. It comes in many forms of communications, but if it is not reported in ways that involve accuracy, integrity, honesty, care and without assumptions and accusations, it can decline into gossip, intentional disinformation or malicious rumors especially if personal character traits are included that are falsified or revealed.
If explored more deeply, spreading of gossip can be seen as an outcasting or disowning of parts of ourselves, perhaps the inner critic, who we have not acknowledged or listened to. Perhaps we feel insecure, or lack mature social skills in communicating what is going on that is not working for us. There could be an underlying self righteousness where we feel the other owes us so the need for the other to suffer or be punished is deemed necessary whether things were intentionally done to hurt or harm us or not. It’s often that we project this punishment mode onto another and then actually attract it back by experiencing those same vices returned by the other. It’s like the subconscious gives us a real chance to clear it up in the projections we make. And if we are the recipient of gossip, then we are in a victim position which might be serving us somehow. Asking ourselves, “Where am I being critical about myself? How can I get back to gentleness?” will allow for a softer approach to our inner world.
And at another subconscious level, we sometimes draw these gossip energies into our lives to make us go slower because we feel we are on the fastrack without brakes (breaks) in our life; or to slow down the building of certain virtues due to the fear of evolving too fast, which was the case for me.
With this topic of gossip so present in class, we were to work on our anger and resentment issues. We were to ask ourselves, “Who is bringing us down? What happened? How are we being motivated? How is the person or situation helping us? What virtues are we learning?”
I sat down by myself to dig. I didn’t want to work with anyone. Not that there weren’t people available, but I’ve found from past experiences that a sacred space isn’t always held among practitioners, and they aren’t able to work with issues that sometimes arise in my personal process. I didn’t want to set myself up to be told what was true for me (with another imposing their perceptions on me) or it being too much to listen to as occurred two years ago when the practitioner couldn’t handle the level of revealing that was shared. I also felt I could feel safe, discover and dig more quickly by myself; and Vianna and Guy were completely fine with that.
I asked Creator what was all this about for me. It’s not like I have been perfect in never gossiping so karma was in play (though it could have been this), but that's not how Creator presented it to me. I felt it was definitely something that needed more attention in refining and in being more mindful. In the energy of the 7th Plane, I heard, “You are learning to resolve issues quicker with others. You are learning the virtue of diplomacy which will help you with your virtue of leadership and its skills.”
I would not have thought of that word, ‘diplomacy’ for the life of me. It’s not something I use often. I also became aware that in writing my next books, the material discussed is not spiritually mainstream and will create some rather intense feelings and opinions for some, so I might as well be prepared to handle things with dignity and steadfastness (more virtues) in what I’m to bring forth. I could hear to hold my head up with dignity around all that was ensuing and things would mellow by the end of the workshop. It was all interesting and supportive in how I was being prepped by Creator.
I felt so much better just understanding all of this and releasing those involved from teaching me to be aware of these virtues, and that I already have them through All-that-IS. It’s about really remembering that they are part of me already. I just haven't mastered them.
I appreciated looking more deeply into this topic no matter how uncomfortable it was for me so that I could come back to myself in a more centered space and move forward in my life.

Mind Over Matter: Princeton & Russian Scientist Reveal The Secrets of Human Aura & Intentions
Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, professor of physics at St. Petersburg State Technical University, states that when we think positive and negative thoughts, each have a different impact on our surrounding environment. To help create a bridge between our physical and unseen world, scientific experiments using a technique called bioelectrophotography are being carried out. In these experiments, an assumption must be made that states the human body and consciousness is constantly emitting energy. Following this assumption, Bioelectrophotography aims to capture these energy fields seen as a light around the body. In the metaphysical world this energy emission is known as a person’s aura, while in the scientific field, it is often refereed to as our energy field.
Mind-Reading Experiments sends thoughts over the Internet
Researchers have managed to send thoughts over the Internet using a direct brain-to-brain connection and a big magnet. "This is the most complex brain-to-brain experiment, I think, that's been done to date in humans," said Andrea Stocco, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Washington.
Study Shows Mindful Meditation Helps Reduce Racial Bias
72 white college students were measured on their levels of implicit bias of blacks and the elderly using the IAT. Some participants then listened to a 10-minute mindfulness meditation in which they were instructed to “become aware of bodily sensations (heartbeat and breath) and fully accept these sensations and any thoughts without restriction, resistance, or judgment”; other participants listened to a recording about natural history, voiced by the same narrator. Afterwards, the two groups of students were evaluated on their levels of mindfulness and then reassessed on their levels of implicit bias using the IAT. Results showed that people who listened to the 10-minute mindfulness recording demonstrated less implicit bias against blacks and old people on the race and age IATs than individuals who listened to the other 10-minute recording. In other words, the mindfulness intervention decreased students’ automatic biases against blacks and older adults. If such a brief mindfulness intervention can reduce biases, it makes a strong case for teaching mindfulness to youth—and adults as well.
Brain scan reveals out-of-body illusion
Neuroscientists have created an out-of-body illusion in participants placed inside a brain scanner. They then used the illusion to perceptually 'teleport' the participants to different locations in a room and show that the perceived location of the bodily self can be decoded from activity patterns in specific brain regions. In the most important part of the study, the scientists used the out-of-body illusion to perceptually 'teleport' the participants between different places in the scanner room. They then employed pattern recognition techniques to analyze the brain activity and show that the perceived self-location can be decoded from activity patterns in specific areas in the temporal and parietal lobes. Furthermore, the scientists could demonstrate a systematic relationship between the information content in these patterns and the participants' perceived vividness of the illusion of being located in a specific out-of-body position.

China to Build World’s First Amethyst Crystal Hotel
The proposed project for a man-made island Ocean Flower, Hainan, China, is a rather profound embodiment of beauty. If built, it would be the world’s first Amethyst Crystal Hotel. (Beautiful pictures) Amethyst Crystal is known for its meditative and calming powers. It has been said to work in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace. The hotel, which resembles a geode sliced in half to show off its shiny, crystal interior would not only be exceptionally aesthetically pleasing, it would provide guests the benefits of the meditative and calming powers of the Amethyst Crystal.
