Push/Pull of Law of Expansion

Nov. 23, 2017

Hi Everyone,

I am grateful for all of you. I am grateful for your patience when I don’t blog. I am grateful for your forgiveness and your loyalty. Thanks to all of you.

The Hosts of Heaven are urging me to add some words about push/pull energy and the Law of Expansion to the talk I am to give this coming Sunday, November 26, 2017 at the Center for Spiritual Living West Georgia.

I am reluctant to do so. I wanted a more upbeat talk.

The Law of Expansion is about increasing our capacity for being, doing and having. Of all the universal laws this one is the most difficult to practice.

When we are experiencing the pull side of this law, we pull into our self. We withdraw from relationships, careers and life activities like shopping, investigating and exploring. We fold our shoulders into our self. Sometimes, we walk with our head facing downward.

When we are experiencing the push of this law, we fold our arms across our chest. We push people and ideas aside. Winning, no matter the cost as long as we don’t pay that cost, no matter who or what gets hurt, is our mantra.

At the moment, several world leaders are displaying the push side of this law. The last time this happened, the leaders who displayed this energy and took push action were Hitler, Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito of Japan. It took World War II with all its slaughter and destruction to stop this energy. You can understand my concern.

So. I ask the angels and all the hosts of heaven to send us guidance, information, understanding and motivation for stopping this energy, for transmuting it into something constructive, before we find ourselves overpowered and, perhaps, destroyed by it.

And so it is.

Four Truths of Peace

The Four Truths of  Peace

Sept. 25, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Last week, I admitted that I knew nothing about peace, what it was or how to obtain it. On behave of all of us, I asked to know.

This week, I received an answer. To know peace, we must know—really know—these four truths:

  1. there is nothing to seek; we were given everything at the moment of our creation; we already have what we seek; we already have everything;
  2. everything is within us;
  3. we are all connected to each other, to God, to all life and to all things;
  4. we are all one; we come from the same Source and are made of the same materials.

To know these four—really know these four—is to know everything.

The question becomes: how do we know—really know—these four truths?

We go to the angels and ask.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,

Thank you for answering our question about peace so promptly. The quickness of the answer is greatly appreciated.

We are willing to know—really know—these Four Truths of Peace.

Please lead us to this knowing. Please guide us to understanding, acceptance, and then, action.

Help us to live in such a way that we demonstrate these Four Truths from moment to moment.

Thank you.

And so it is.

Win and to hell with the consequences

AskAngelsCoach

Sept. 19, 2017

Hi Everyone,

If there was ever a time, all of us need to call upon the angels, archangels and company of heaven it is now.

I heard pieces of the speech the current occupant of the US White House said today, Tuesday, September 19, 2017, at the United Nations meeting in New York City, USA.

There is no doubt in my mind that this present occupant will do exactly what he says he wants to do: given any reason, he will destroy 27 million people and to hell with the consequences.

Winning and to hell with the consequences

At the moment, there are many world leaders just like this current occupant. They believe that winning at any price is okay as long as they and their families don’t have to pay the price of winning and don’t have to face those consequences.

I am still in shock that so many Americans supported this occupant even though he gave red flag after red flag during his campaign speeches.

For example, he said he loved war. No one asked what kind of war he loved. Did he love the Hollywood version where all the soldiers are always in clean, freshly pressed uniforms, have obviously received dental and other health care and have had enough sleep and food? Or, did he love the real war where body after body comes home in black body bags and real soldiers come back disabled or mentally ill?

For example, he said he admired Putin. How can anyone who understands American democracy admire a communist dictator or any kind of dictator?

No one challenged him about this. Not one person.

For example, when fighting broke out in his gatherings, not once did he stop and say to the fighters:

” This is America. We settle things at the ballot box, or in the court system. There will be no fighting at my events.”

Again, no one challenged his lack of appropriate response.

The American Press

Where was the American press, the Fourth Estate, the ones the Founding Fathers depended on to ask the hard questions and demand answers, to point out the facts and to broadcast truth?

Instead of asking questions and demanding answers, the newsmen were gathering points for getting their little gold statues, winning advertising dollars at any price, doing what so many world leaders at the moment including the present occupier of the White House: winning at any price and to hell with the consequences.

We, also, observe example after example of corporate leaders being willing to win at any price so long as they and their families don’t have to endure the consequences.

My Responsibility

Jessi Khohihagen wrote in today’s Life Book Blog http://mylifebook.com/blog/the-other-person-is-never-the-problem/

”Everything that upsets us about others can lead us to a greater understanding of ourselves, if we choose it.

No matter how much they irritate us, don’t share our same beliefs, or don’t do things the way we like, we are ultimately responsible for how we choose to respond (and for the consequences those responses have on our lives).

And this doesn’t only mean our external, verbal responses. It means our inner responses — the mental, emotional, energetic reactions that are triggered in the deepest parts of our being, and the destruction (or growth) these responses can cause in our lives.”

I choose to respond to this morning’s speech by remembering that nothing is free and everything comes at a price.

I do not know the cost of peace. It might be a cost I’m not willing to pay. Recall that the American president, President Richard Nixon said that “peace is greater than the absence of war”.

I do not know what peace is. I doubt that anyone knows. I cannot recall a time when this planet was without war.

Martin Luther King and Gandhi pointed the way to non-violence, not peace. Non-violence is not peace.

So, my responsibility is to find out what real peace is, and make that such a powerful part of the inner me that I continuously reflect this in the outer world.

The only way I know to do this is to ask the angels, archangels, and company of heaven for help.

Call to the Angels

Angels, Archangels, Company of Heaven,

Thank you for answering my call. I invite all humans to be part of this call and its consequences.

I know that you, the heavenly beings, know how dire the situation on this planet is: we, who live on a lovely, gracious planet that supplies us with an abundance of all good are in big trouble and have been for many generations.

Many of us humans have known for a very long time that there is no excuse for the famine, thirst, and hostility that exists on our planet. We have known for a very long time that there is more than enough of all good for everyone to be filled to overflowing, and there still be plenty left over.

We have known that it is many of our own rules and our obedience to them that have created hate-filled situations.

Lead us to right action and right knowing so that everyone on this planet experiences living in the overflow of all good, including the all good of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.

Help us to understand what true peace is and the cost of that peace. It might be a cost that all of us are more than willing to pay.

For example, part of the price of peace might be giving up beliefs and rules that don’t make peace.

Perhaps, peace is a very simple, easy thing to achieve.

We, the company of the planet Earth, don’t know.

Help us know.

Thank you.

And, so it is.

Calming a Hurricane

Sept. 11, 2017

Hi Everyone,

I received a post from Shiloh Sophia, artist, writer, thinker.

http://www.shilohsophiastudios.com/whispering-to-hurricanes-does-prayer-matter/

Please check out this blog; it is beautiful.

She reminded me of the story of the Master Teacher and Healer Jesus speaking to the wind and the storm. As a result, they calmed and became normal.

I wondered, “Why don’t we speak to storms? After all, the Master Teacher/Healer said that “Yes, I did all of this; but you, you will do greater than this.” So, we should be able to speak to storms and have them calm, also.”

Sound crazy?

We have no problem talking to angels or to God, so why not talk to hurricanes? Or floods? Or fires?

Why not send these things love, the most powerful force in the Universe? Why not ask them to find a way to do their good and perfect work without scaring us or being destructive?

If we all come from the same Source—God, and are made of the same materials, why shouldn’t we include hurricanes and other storms as part of us, as some piece of us, a piece that deserves appreciation and recognition?

After all, hurricanes have this most important job of bringing water to inland areas. So, why not honor them and give thanks that they do their job?

Since this site is dedicated to working with angels, let us ask the angels of the hurricanes to speak to the storms for us.

Angels of the Hurricanes

Angels of the Hurricanes,

Wow! For some of us, it seems strange to realize that just as it is said that each blade of grass has an angel watching over it and helping it grow, so does all life including the winds, the rains and the storms.

This realization helps us recognize the oneness of all life, that storms are part of us and part of life, that there is no separation of any kind. We have a clearer picture of how everything truly is some piece of Life.

So, Angels of the Hurricanes, please tell them that we are grateful that they do the difficult job of bringing water to areas that would otherwise be deserts.

Please tell them that we send them love, appreciation and acceptance. We include them in the tapestry of life. We welcome them. We cherish them.

Please tell them that we don’t condemn the hurricanes because we humans haven’t learned how to live with them by doing things like constructing better buildings and roads.

Thank you, Angels of the Hurricanes. Thank you for communicating our love and acceptance.

And so it is.

Rev. Barbara

New Definition of American Citizenship

Sept. 6, 2017

Hi everyone,

I published this today on a new site I am developing: Barbara Lucas teaches.com.

In view of yesterday’s and today’s political developments, I thought this different way of defining an American citizen might be helpful. After all, if one reads the letters written by and other publications of  our Founding Fathers, it becomes obvious that they meant for American freedom to spread through out the globe and not be limited to one geographic area.

Please read and consider:

New Definition of American Citizenship

Sept. 6, 2017

Hi everyone,

This website is dedicated to explaining techniques for the healing of the self—you do the work instead of paying professionals to do it for you—of health, financial and career/work concerns.

I believe that anyone anywhere no matter geographic location, or what they or their ancestors did or didn’t do is an American citizen if they live by the standard of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights of the American Constitution.

That amendment states:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

So. If you grant freedom of religion to yourself, your family, your geographic community and all others; if you grant freedom of speech, of the press, of peaceful assembly and petition to yourself, your family, your geographic community and to all others than you are an American.

For those interested in healing, ask:

  1. Do I practice freedom of speech? Do I speak what’s in my mind and my heart, or do I edit what I say?

2.  Am I constantly trying to win the approval of others instead of speaking my thoughts, my truth?

3. Do I know what my thoughts are? Do I know what my truth is?

4.  Do I support and encourage all others to practice and do the First Amendment?

5. Do I listen—really listen—to what others are saying?

6. Do I practice compassion and empathy?

7.  Do I try—really try—to understand how they came to the conclusions they’re stating?

Yes. I know. There are many, many situations and circumstances that would put your life and the lives of your family and community in great danger if you did this.

Ask yourself:

If it were safe, would I not only practice freedom of speech, of the press, of worship and the right to peaceful assembly and petition, would I, also, support and encourage all others to do likewise?

I urge everyone on my planet and in the multi-verses to begin today to practice being an American citizen, to practice living by the standard of the First Amendment even if the only safe place to do so is in the privacy of your own mind.

Start in your mind; you will be led to ways to practice being an American citizen openly, without fear, in safety and security.

And so it is.

Prayer for good

Sept. 4, 2017

Hi Everyone,

A friend sent this. He swears that this has brought he and his wife much good.

He says that he repeats this three to four times a day.

“I have absolute trust in God and all things good. I know that I will be able to meet any situation at any time, for God is my immediate source of supply, presenting me with all necessary ideas in the right way at the right time.

God’s riches are forever flowing freely in my life, and there is always a Divine surplus.

As I repeat these truths, I know my mind is being conditioned to receive Divine supply forever flowing.

I give thanks for the immediate and complete payment of all my financial obligations now quickly, easily, and in peace. I am receiving now.

God’s love fills my soul and I radiate love and goodwill to all those around me and to all people everywhere. God’s love flows through me as harmony, love, companionship, wealth and true expression.

God is my shepherd, and I shall always have more than enough money, love, beauty and companionship.

God answers me now and I give thanks for I know God is already supplying me with all I need, require and desire in great abundance.

And so it is.

Rev. Barbara.

PTSD

Aug. 29, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Did you know that PTSD can happen to anyone experiencing any type of disaster or stressful situations including people who divorce, or have surgery, or have had to endure a foreclosure or repro of a car?

This weekend, I  took an online seminar about healing.

I’ve met two Holocaust survivors before this seminar. I have no doubt that it happened, that  it was horrifying and people are still suffering from it.

Attending the seminar was a woman born the year I was to parents who sheltered Jews in the Netherlands. Her mother lived in terror. Even after the war the mother was so terrified she wouldn’t leave the home. The  seminar attendee now my age was suffering from terrified inner child and PTSD from growing up in fear. I saw the terror in and on her and saw some of it dissolve.

This happening is a reminder to treat others with great kindness and gentleness because we just don’t know what another is dealing with.

Let us ask the angels of all of us to send extra healing and energy to those who are suffering and to those who feel the pain of others so deeply that they deny that the Holocaust or Sandy Hook happened.

Let us receive from the angels extra healing, energy, love and strength so that we can be a pillar of light and supply to those in need.

And so it is.

Rev. Barbara
