How Does Soul Retrieval Relate To Practical Psychology?

“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” ~ Jesus Christ

image 171x300 How Does Soul Retrieval Relate To Practical Psychology?

Aura Leakage or Soul Loss

People are not linked up with their Soul, as their personality is not being fully self-expressed, as the Soul is the bridge to Spirit. All therapies try to make people ‘whole’ by linking people with their Soul, whether it’s mental work bringing the person to their Soul or intuitive work, the Soul to the person as in Soul Retrieval.

The way dis-ease manifests:

PHYSICAL LEVEL

MENTAL LEVEL

EMOTIONAL LEVEL

SPIRITUAL LEVEL

Everything is energy, and the different vibration rates of energy are what distinguish ourselves and all manifestation of life around us. We are born with enough energy, what acupuncturists call ‘Inherent’ energy (energy ‘within’), to last us through life. It is said that a body has enough energy to power the national grid for a city for a week. But along life’s path, we can become attached to significant traumatic events, or relationship difficulties that we end up giving our power away, or it can be taken from us. When the power leaves, it creates a ‘vacuum’ in our energy fields, a type of ‘aura leakage’, through which our own soul energy leaks away. This is called Soul Loss.

Soul Loss can happen at any time when we are traumatised, physically abused, suffer from accidents etc that a part of our soul energy splits off and leaves the body and physical world from shear shock, pain and discomfort as an act of healing and preservation, the result of which over time has detrimental effects shown up by any dissociation symptoms like depression, fears, phobias or addictions. At which point the soul energy part needs to be unified with the body again.

Retrieving the power and sense of ourselves, that we gave away or had been taken from us is called Soul Retrieval. And it is the Shaman’s job to seek and return the missing soul from the ‘Otherworld’ or what the Aborigines call the ‘Dreamtime’ where the soul has been trapped, allowing the client to move forward with their life now.

To understand how soul retrieval works, we need to understand the difference between ‘Western – Left brain’ and ‘Native – Right brain’ views.

Some Left Brain or Western Beliefs that lead to separation:

¨      Time is a straight line    Now  ——————–> Future

¨      God is separate from us .i.e. God in Heaven

¨      We are separate from Nature

Some Right Brain Native/Shamanic Beliefs:

¨      Time is in the here and now

¨      Time is a circle    (Medicine Wheel, Circle of Life)

¨      Space is a Dot

¨      Nature has Rhythms

¨      God is a part of us

¨      Everything is connected

Drumming/Rattling/Dancing/Chanting/Praying are rituals to access the ‘Higher Self’ by slowing the brain down. Drumming induces ‘Theta’ brain waves and therefore produces profound changes of awareness.

If reality is a subjective experience, which is the greater reality, the physical world or dreamtime?  What of the Past? Then that could only be a mistaken subjective experience.

If a traumatic event happened to a person many years ago, for that person it is still happening, as they are re-living it in their mind with all their senses. Therefore, the Shaman journeys outside of linear time to the place where that traumatic event is still happening, in another parallel world and find and bring back the soul to the person.

Praying to each of the four directions helps us to get centred by coming out of trance and into ‘Alpha’ energy before going into an altered state of consciousness.

Each of the four directions has special energy powers and is represented by an animal. The powers from the East are represented by the Eagle, the South by the Mouse or Coyote, the West by the Bear, and the North by the Buffalo. To call upon these powers, stand and face each of the directions starting with the East and honour and pray for the animal in each direction. This allows us to become balanced and centred in the Alpha healing mode. When we are centred, then we are ready to call the helpers or guides. The Shaman becomes like a hollow bone, an instrument for Spirit to enter to communicate the Creators Will on Earth.

The Soul is the bridge between Spirit and Body. And only when the physical body is complete or balanced, which takes a life time, can we truly allow Spirit into our Body.

We tend to only express ourselves, not from our gifts of who we really are, but from our lower selves, the emotional level. Our life’s work is to unify Body, Soul and then Spirit. The Soul is sometimes called the reflection of the Spirit, and the personality is called its shadow.

How old is a Soul? Since we are working at soul level, there is always a chance that the significant event happened in a past life before the trauma in this life. You can recognise old souls by their eyes which seem to be illuminated from within. Watch babies and children communicate telepathically through the light of their eyes. Babies pick up adult thoughts by what the adult is imagining .i.e. images or symbols. As we get older we loose that skill as we learn language.

Is a New Soul ever born? Yes, sometimes.

When does the Soul enter the Body? An age old question that nobody can answer truthfully. There are theories that the soul enters at conception, after conception, at birth or shortly after birth. If you believe in a Divine plan, then you may lean towards sometime before birth. But there’s no real need to dwell on such questions as it serves no purpose.

Praying v’s Manifestation

“The greater the ignorance the greater the dogmatism” – Sir William Osler

Jeanie 300x200 Praying vs ManifestationThe whole basis to Lynn McTaggat’s work is that everything is a constantly fluctuating mass of energy which all of creation exists from and it is our thoughts that influence this mass of energy which shapes our individual reality. And that God = Zero Point Field or Cosmos or The Source Or Mystery. Coming from this belief, it is hard to imagine that God is a person!
Therefore, God is only a label and not a male person. The only advantage to referring to God as a person is that it makes it easier to explain life in some way, in much the same way Native Americans refer to stones as the ‘stone people’ or the ‘tree people’, because everything has consciousness.
The main disadvantage of referring to God as a person though is that you set beliefs that God is up there in the sky which leads to beliefs of separateness between us, nature, the universe, and God, which the planet is now suffering as a result.
As we are all one with everything, then we are also rain. So you pray rain. If you pray for rain, then you are not accepting that rain is a part of you. This old way of praying rain is like visualising the rain and experiencing the essence and quality of the rain/water, this way you are sending out the water vibration and then celebrating that it rained, and because it was good for the whole or good intent it actually rains.
Now, suppose that you wanted to pray for Peace as you were angry at politicians or whoever, the prayers would have no effect because of the anger vibrations rippling out. Therefore, you take on inner peace then you are naturally sending out the Peace vibration.
If you want to pray for a person’s health, you try and stimulate that person’s own healing within, by imagining/visualising the person in good health. This would be a healthy prayer coming from peace, love, compassion etc.
What we’re doing is ordering our life in the best possible way. You attract by your own ability to attract and manifest. You can only do the above if you believe that you are a co-creator or part of God. Then you have a part of creating with all. Part God is part of the Whole.

I think what Gregg Braden has said is spot on about the book Secrets of The Lost Mode of Prayer, “allowing no room for the conscious filtered mind to take a hold. Praying rain helps you avoid one’s inner critic” I would call that similar to having a ‘personality’.
If you just pray to God in the hope that He will make things better, then He will either give you what you want or not depending if you have been good or not. Then praying becomes about trying to change God’s mind, as though he had a personality to change!
If you were to create not coming from, ‘for the good of everybody’ there would be a payback in Karma by dealing with the karma. Not because God judges whether it is right or wrong as God is the Cosmos and the Cosmos does not judge.
Only when you have trust in yourself, others and the trust in the universe’s plan will anyone have true Power and Wisdom.

Easter Message: Christ Did Not Die For Sin

Fotolia 50537212 XS 300x234 Easter Message: Christ Did Not Die For Sin

Eggs and the Bunny Are The Symbols Of Fertility & Sex, Nothing To Do With Resurrection.

First, what do we all know about Easter? That Christ died for our sins and resurrected on the third day.

Let me propose this question:

If he didn’t die for our sins, then for what purpose did he die for?

The fact that we ask such a question, just goes to show how well the Vatican has kept all the original ancient scrolls from the public, that were written while Jesus was still alive, which would be nearer to the truth of Jesus’s teachings compared to other peoples interpretation written sixty years after Jesus’ death.

Take the Gospel of Thomas which was found in 1945 along with many other scrolls. Thomas was Jesus’ brother, but the Vatican wouldn’t want you to believe that Jesus had brothers and sisters like any other normal family. Thomas wrote down what Jesus actually said with no interpretations. What would be the motivation of the Vatican to keep us in the dark? Why does it take so long for gospels and 800 plus ancient scrolls to be published?

Answer: To fulfil and continue the belief system that Jesus died for our sins and that we continue to pay for our sins, by installing fear of punishment.

Not much freedom and choice in that!

The scrolls should be public documents accessible to everyone and not owned by anybody to hide.

It is completely nonsensical to depict God as revengeful who takes it out on his son!

As with most religious festivals, the giving of eggs at Easter is a pagan celebration symbolising the death of your old self and the rebirth of the new you. So what does that mean? It means letting go of our personality or ego, our attachment to our body and our emotions etc, and ascending to higher consciousness. We have a body, we have emotions but we should not be given by them, i.e. running our lives.

When you read the story of the events leading up to Jesus’ death, you’ll realise that he could have lived, but exercised non-attachment to his flesh and chose to die. According to the Gospel of Judas, Judas was a catalyst to Jesus fulfilling his purpose.

According to Judas, he says to Jesus that he had a dream that he does something to Jesus, but doesn’t know what, but would condem his name forever and this worries him. Jesus turns to Judas and says he MUST do the deed, when the situation arises, otherwise he (Jesus) cannot not fulfill his purpose.

Judas was pivotal to Jesus fulfilling his purpose on Earth.

It takes a very strong person to take the leap of faith to fulfil their purpose by choosing to die and to give up material, body, and over come our lower personality nature, and accept a higher will, and release our divine being that is within.

For Judas, that makes him a Saint, an unsung hero. But this is not how the Vatican has been depicting Judas or wants to. Jesus by ordering Judas to fulfill his part, means there was no sin, which means there would be no holy sacrament which means there would be no church serivce which means there would be no church!

And there lies the motivation to keep this sin myth and belief system going. The whole foundation of dogma Christianity would be shaken and would cease to exist in it’s current form! Pure Christianity would still flow. Ways of being ‘Love’ and ‘Peace’ with choice and Freedom.

We can still wish each other happy Easter though, as it doesn’t alter the fact that we ‘rise’, even if it be before the third day.

Here’s to truth and Happy Easter!

‘Walk in Peace;

‘Walk in Beauty’

Happy New Year! New Soul!

Have a read of this poem, I’ve highlighted in bold the important bits to think about:

A SLEEP OF PRISONERS —  Christopher Fry

Dark and cold we may be, but this

Is no winter now. The frozen misery

Of centuries breaks, cracks, begins to move;

The thunder is the thunder of the floes,

The thaw, the flood, the upstart Spring.

Thank God our time is now when wrong

Comes up to face us everywhere,

Never to leave us till we take

The longest stride of soul we ever took.

Affairs are now soul size.

The enterprise

Is exploration into God.

Where are you making for? It takes

So many thousand years to wake,

But will you wake for pity’s sake!

~~~

You do believe in man’s evolution don’t you? Otherwise, man is stuck!

Currently, we come from our personality Self ‘Will’ it causes many problems and wrongs, and now we are in the time of facing all the wrongs until we develop into soul people acting from our Soul’s ‘Will’.

Our Soul is our exploration into God, or whtever word you prefer like cosmos etc. Man’s evolution is to change into a new kind of humanity.

As we come to the end of the Maylan calendar, many people have taken it to mean that it marks the end of the world. You could however say, it marks the end of the ‘old world’ or ‘old age’, as we enter the Aquarian Age, for the next 2,500 years. Then there will be new step for humanity to take.

In the old world/age it was the Piscean Age. A time when man thought it was right to act as the bible says. But this is very restrictive, think of your parents, grand-parents and Gt.Grand-parents.

The corner stone of Aquarian thinking is ‘free will’. The paradox is the more we behave in accordance with universal or spiritual laws, the free’er and more creative we become.

I tell you this because my Soul points in the direction of Aquarius, it is the way man is meant to evlove.

Walk in Peace;

Walk in Beauty

…and Happy New Year!

I think, therefore I am. Really?

“I think, therefore I am” Rene Descartes (1596-1650)

thinking1 I think, therefore I am.  Really? Rene was French and a very intellectual philosopher of his time. However, how can we with our little intellect say what we are in the whole of creation? Nor can we rely on our thoughts as we can’t trust what we see with our mind’s eye as our thoughts generalise, distort, delete and our thoughts can change. Which brings us back to the old question ‘Who are you really?’

If you take the Hebrew Bible, God’s reply to Mosses when he asked for His name was: I am that I am (Exodus 3:14) see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Am_that_I_Am This shows that that not even God called himself God. He uses the word ‘That’ as there is no word to use to describe that you are ‘everything’ as we are a spark of the Devine. This leads to the question can we therefore say that ‘I am God’? Well, you could but many people in history have said that and got burnt at the stake for saying so but more importantly putting it that way leads to separateness and not Oneness as they see themselves above all others.

Though, ‘I am that I am’ has been pretty much universally accepted. But perhaps another way of putting it as a means of our ‘work in progress’ to getting to that level of consciousness would be to say:

I Am One With The One.

Or, you could use any word that describes the word ‘everything’ like who I am is Grace (A gift from God). So when you’re asked who are you? The answer is not your name or what you do but who you really are, i.e. your essence your Higher Qualities. And our job becomes to develop our higher qualites as our shadow self is still at large!

If you don’t know what your shadow self is, it’s really the opposite of your good side (higher quality). The part of us that’s horrible if you can dare to look at it and embrace it, as your shadow self is a part of you. By seeing it for what it is you begin to release it, therefore letting go of guilt or playing the victim.

“When you no longer believe everything you think, you become aware and realise that the thinker is not who you are.” ~ Echart Tolle

’til we meet again,

Walk in Peace;

So when will it be the end of the world?

There have been many preachers in the past predicting the end of the world or doomsday. And Mr Harold Camping is no different see http://is.gd/a1HeMU. Though his holy mathematical calculations are interesting the scientists agree that the end of the world is when the sun blows up, during which time (in millions of years) man would have evolved to what we truly are.

The scientists have agreed for some time that if we abuse earth it’s going to react i.e. earthquakes etc.

Mathew 24: “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

Well, if Jesus didn’t know, after all he was a man, then it’s unlikely an American preacher would. So why do Americans donate so much money to such preachers who’s organisation is worth $120m?

North Americans (not all) are fundamentalist and though in lots of ways Americans lead the way but they also hold themselves back with their fanatical attitudes. Look at their attitude to the death penalty. They dump on other people i.e. you have done this bad thing, instead of looking at it as a mirror of their fears.

But they’re not the only ones. Recently there’s the Iranian man who through acid into his ex-partner’s face and the Iranian courts have agreed that the woman may inject acid into his eyes, retribution an eye-for-an-eye.

Using Mathew 24: So what does Mathew mean by the ‘Father’ knowing? Who is the ‘Father’? In Mathew’s day and his use of language then, ‘Father’ was the head of the house hold and was also referred to as the head of the Rabbi. In today’s language we know what he means is God, Zero Point if you’re a scientist or Source because we can’t give it a name.

Because we’re One we therefore will one day return to the Source and therefore the Source knows, though in modern day language we probably wouldn’t say it that way. So how could we say it? As the sun blows up so do we? Or, as the sun burns out we are all evolving to what we truly are? Getting there but still a bit of confusion as to how we as humans relate to the sun.

Life cannot exist without sunlight. The planet spins around the sun held by magnetism which is Oneness as Love is the cement holding all together!

Therefore we could say: As the sun gradually dies so the people would also die with it. The two become pure energy and therefore man has no need to re-incarnate.

Plato wrote: “The soul of man is immortal and imperishable”. In essence, there is no death.

During this time man evolves by first seeing the beauty within and once he can see his own beauty he can then see the beauty within others. When you see beauty in everything, then there is no need to come back i.e. re-incarnate, unless, you want to teach others as a spiritual master as a guiding light for others to evolve.

As it is above, so below, meaning beauty in heaven, beauty on earth. Though beauty is in fact already here the point is that man can’t see it…..yet.

While man comes from retribution and judgment he is not seeing beauty he is having it to be his way only, his personality way.

‘Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven’ not ‘Their will be done…’

So the end of the world is when mankind sees beauty only and doesn’t re-incarnate because he becomes Beauty. He becomes what we always have been, One with God. Oneness.

Read below on how to see beauty in everything!

Walk in Beauty.

Yet I with reason…

‎”Yet I with reason bright as day, Forever tread the earthbound day.”

Now what do you think Spike Milligan meant by that?The poem is about freedom…free to be one’s own unique self…to go for what might seemingly seem to be impossible for the logical left brain mind to understand. Yet, if you live by reason with the best logical sense (as bright as day) then… you will not soar like an eagle, but remain firmly earthbound.

 

A bird in flight,
her wings spread wide,
Is the soul of man
with bonds untied.
Beyond the plough,
the spade, the hod
A bird flies in
the face of God.
Yet I with reason
bright as day,
Forever tread
the earthbound day.

~ Spike Milligan (1918 – 2002)

How To See Beauty, Truth And Harmony In Everything!

“Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.” ~ Confucious

Essentially Life Is Beautiful.

embrace lifes beauty poster rc3bb78e5dbc24c6e99a7b395f294c084 7plt 325 300x300 How To See Beauty, Truth And Harmony In Everything!When one clears their negative karma and practices ‘forgiveness’ and ‘gratitude’ for everything, then one is able to see the Beauty in everything. Some pictures of war can be very testing, but it comes down to that at life’s core, life is beautiful and that wars are simply life’s distortions. But we can, be responsible for our own perceptions. And when the whole world’s population is able to see only beauty, then that’s the end of the world!

What I mean by the end of the world is: Is there any more reason for us to come here? Of course, it may take a couple of million years.

We make the world what we see through our separate eyes, our personality body. We tend to think everything is black or white, good and bad. But if we accept there is One God, Zero Point then God is not Good or Bad but ‘Whole’. When the world was created it was ‘whole’ and not ‘separate’. Everything comes from Oneness, therefore nothing is wrong! You look beyond your ordinary eyes and see a more over view from Oneness.

“Why is everyone here so happy except me?”  

“Because they have learned to see goodness and beauty everywhere,” said the Master. 

“Why don’t I see goodness and beauty everywhere?” 

“Because you cannot see outside of you what you fail to see inside.” 
~ Anthony de Mello

Walk in Beauty;
Walk in Peace.
