The Unasked Question

March 26, 2017

Hi Everyone,

In the past few months, did you hear anyone ask, “Why are we Americans so sick?“

If our bodies were created to self-heal, and they were—over time, we may have lost that ability or lost knowing how to cause self-healing to occur–we shouldn’t require health insurance, or the elaborate health care system that has evolved over time.

In all the noise about the Affordable Health Care Act, I didn’t hear, “Wait a minute. Why are we Americans so sick? Why do we even need health insurance?”

The problem to solve is: why don’t we have health? Why are we so sick? And, why are we not choosing health and fitness?

Health Defined

Most of us limit our thinking of health to the physical and the mental.

Health is vim, vigor, vitality, energy and feeling good in all phases of life including:

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual
  • Financial
  • Relationships
  • Career/work
  • Giving (contributing, volunteering, i.e.)

Discover the Answer

Do this:

Step one: Connect

“Angels, and the Creative Intelligence of the Universe, I open to and receive your wisdom and guidance. I know the answers you give are always clear, effective, understandable and easy to do.

Step two: Ask

“What would it take for me to have perfect health, wholeness, and wellness in all areas of my life?”

For those who work with the Law of Attraction ask,

“What vibrational energy must I become so that I attract perfect health, wholeness, and wellness in all areas of my life? “

Step three: Clear

“Everything in the way of me knowing the answers to these questions, including Karma, DNA, family and cultural expectations, beliefs, habits, practices, inheritances and traditions, I uncreate, delete, destroy and transmute across all time, space, experiences, and realities. I receive these answers now.”

Effectiveness

In order to delete and destroy all the images and words we have been given since early childhood that keep us sick and unfit, it is necessary to repeat the above steps several times a day until health and fitness is who and what we are.

Repeating these steps is the most effective and least costly way I know to bring about all of us being filled with vim, vigor, vitality, energy, and wellness in all aspects of our being.

And, so it is.

Pretty Boys, Pretty Girls, Pretty Words

March 2, 2017

Hi Everyone,

These sayings might be helpful at this time:

1. “When a leopard changes its spots, hide!” Jeremiah 13:23

2. “By their fruit, you will recognize them.” Matthew 7:20

I gave a talk several months ago, in which I said that we, the people, have the most important job of all jobs: we select the leader we will follow.

I, also, said that the way to select this leader is to ignore her/his looks and pay attention to what the words and actions of the would-be leader produce. In fact, most of the time, it’s necessary to ignore their words and to only concentrate on the results those words bring forth.

Recall the blog I wrote about charismatic leaders: they are excellent readers of people. They instantly know if you will be useful to them and how to use you to benefit them. They instantly know the words to speak and promises to make that will cause you not to realize what the charismatic leader is really up to.

Be not swayed by pretty boys, pretty girls, and pretty words.

Ask the angels to alert you to the truth.

And so it is.

Silent No More

Jan. 3, 2017

Hi Everyone,

It wasn’t the words so much that alarmed me as it was the look of pure adoration and worship that were revealed as the speaker said that “now that a business man, a successful business man at that, was in charge that the ‘swamp in Washington would be drained’ and wasn’t that a good thing?”

It is tradition in the United States that ministers don’t give political comments. Instead, I try to give information such as my blog about charismatic leaders written Nov. 9, 2016 that might help people see what they haven’t before.

The words that are the cause of me going against this tradition were spoken to me at church a Sunday or two ago. I was nice. I didn’t say what I’m about to say to you. My words would have fallen on death ears. However, I can be silent no more.

Please recall that even Jesus lost his temper and called out the merchant who was using false weights.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am a former employee of the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS). I took the Oath of Office that says “I will defend and protect the Constitution of these United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Like 98.9 % of federal employees who take that oath, it is a guiding principle of my life. It is as strong an influence as the oath I took when I accepted the mantle of minister and the mantle of teacher.

Right Thing

When the speaker about the ‘swamp in Washington’ spoke, I wondered if this person realized that most of that swamp wouldn’t be needed if business people did the right thing.

A certain food processing plant here in Georgia didn’t do the right thing; didn’t keep its plant safe and clean; and, when a certain food was found to be unsafe, sold it anyway. Several persons died and many more became very ill.

If the owners of this plant had done the right thing, none of this would have happened.  I do not know why federal and state inspectors didn’t put a stop to this before bad things happened, but, I can only imagine that if federal and state inspectors didn’t exist, how many more business owners would do the same thing and get away with it.

My mother’s mother had three husbands. All three were killed in the coal mines. They lived before there were strong labor unions, the kind that were recently destroyed by business and political leaders. They died because business mine owners didn’t do the right thing until they were forced to do so by labor unions who forced the government to give power to mine inspectors.

So, when this swamp is drained, how soon do you think it will be before this country has horrible mine accidents again? Oh, I forgot. Mining work is now mostly done by robots and computers, so, of course, mine accidents won’t matter.

There is a certain seller of chicken who carefully packs underneath the chicken extra fat and skin. The buyer doesn’t realize until the product is opened at home that the buyer didn’t get the full measure of chicken. This seller isn’t doing the right thing and is getting away with this type of dishonesty. How many other business people would do likewise if they knew that no one would stop them?

And the list goes on.

Please don’t email me about privatization, that inspectors hired by private contractors would do the work now done by federal and state inspectors. Oh really? Just how soon would these inspectors become the show pieces of business people who won’t do the right thing unless they are forced?

Ask the Angels

I ask the angels and the Power for Good to remove from my eyes, and anyone who so desires, anything that prevents me from seeing what is really going on.

I ask the angels and the Power for Good to make me, and anyone who so desires, aware when I admire that which doesn’t deserve admiration.

Make me aware when I admire hoarders, especially hoarders of money. At the moment, hoarders of money appear to be the cause of much harm so let me be aware of them and know them by their proper name.

And so it is.

Heal Terrorism: Go Within

Aug. 1, 2016

Hi Everyone,

How does one heal the anger and fear that results in terrorism? For that matter, how does one heal anger and fear?

I sent a link last week to Jennifer Handley’s class on Heal the Terrorist Within. Jennifer Handley is a Course in Miracles master.

I hope that many of you listened to and gained insight from that class.

Anger Is

It is helpful to know that anger is caused by fear. Fear is usually a result of some past event that we haven’t healed, that still hurts only we have dulled the pain and don’t want the hurt disturbed so it won’t hurt so much. Most of us have hidden this pain deep within us.

For example, you might be angry about a divorce. Underneath the anger might be the fear that your next relationship will end the same way, or fear of rejection and abandonment, or fear of abuse and violence, or fear of being used and taken advantage of. All of this hurts.

In fact, you might be so angry about this that you are doing terrorist acts such as yelling or throwing things or having accidents or ending relationships or getting fired.

You might be so angry that you deeply hurt people, animals and things. Instead of anger, you might be suffering from rage.

As the Course in Miracles teaches: every bit of anger adds to the worlds anger. To subtract or lessen the world’s anger, eliminate your own. This is the greatest thing you can do to end terrorism: recognize and end your own.

Healing Terrorism

You probably didn’t go to a healer or counselor or therapist to get help with dissolving this pain and its many possible causes.  Go now.

You probably didn’t go to your personal self-heal tool bag and use visioning or visualization or story-retelling or intuitive painting or affirmative prayer or affirmations or a burning bowl ceremony or Ho’oponopono-clearing or tapping (emotional freedom technique) . Use these tools now.

You probably didn’t have a long, heart-to-heart talk with your soul and your angels. Do both now.

I repeat: the greatest thing you can do to end terrorism is recognize and end your own practice of it.

Handling Difficulty

Yes. You are correct. This is hard, hard, hard work. There is nothing simple or easy about it.

Constantly talk with and listen to your soul and your angels. Do what they say.

Do help with this, I will spend the next few weeks naming and explaining the tools everyone should have in their personal self-heal tool bag.

Peace,

Rev. Barbara

When Prayer Doesn’t Work part 3 intention

June 27, 2016

Hi Everyone,

What is the Law of Intention? How do we use it to make prayer effective?

Intention is you saying out loud what you prefer, desire, or want. Intention is you making known your decision about something. The Law of Intention states that whatever we intend the Universe will provide or bring forth.

Clear, firmly stated intentions are the key to getting the Universe to work for us.

The Universe Is
Think of the Universe as being this gigantic pile of energy. Imagine that this energy is moving at a very slow pace as it waits for us to tell it what to do. As soon as it receives our orders via our intention statements, this slow moving energy springs into action and creates what we said.

Prayer is one of the methods we use to communicate to this pile of energy we call the Universe.

If prayer isn’t working, perhaps our intentions haven’t been stated, or, if stated, not stated clearly.

Intention Statements
For example, I could say:

  • My intention is to create more money coming into my bank accounts than going out of them.
  • I am grateful that 75 people attend my visioning workshop in December.
  • I feel God’s presence more and more.
  • I am asthma free. I breathe easily and freely.
  • I intend for the book I’m now writing to be available in paper back and on Kindle at the end of November 2016.
  • I intend to always have more than enough money to pay for my lifestyle and five hundred dollars or more left over.

If your prayer hasn’t brought desired results, examine your intention. Make certain that your prayer and you are focused on what is wanted and that you are ignoring what isn’t wanted.

Your Angels
It is always wise when working with the Law of Intention to invite your angels to examine your intentions and then alert you of any actions being done or words being used that are negating your prayer.

And so it is.

When Prayer Doesn’t Work part 2

June 13, 2016

Hello Everybody,

What is the Law of Congruence? How does it affect prayer?

Last week, we talked about the first thing to do if prayer isn’t producing its intended result.

The first thing we do is use the Law of Mental Equivalence and both clarify and strengthen the blueprint or mold or description we are bringing forth of the condition that we desire.

We use this law to make certain that the Creative Mind knows exactly what we are seeking, and that it has no doubt about how things are to be.

This week, we are discussing the second thing to do: examine the Law of Congruence and our use of it concerning our prayer.

The Law of Congruence

The Law of Congruence states that two things come together and agree.  When we are using the Creative Process, the conscious and the subconscious mind must agree.

We will get our new job if the conscious mind and the subconscious mind are in agreement about it.

However, if the conscious mind says, “Wow! A new job! Awesome!” but the subconscious mind says, “No. You don’t really want to work. You want some more time off”, you won’t get the job.

The Conscious Mind

The conscious mind is responsible for all actions that are preformed while you are conscious, aware, and awake.

The conscious mind is also known to be the gate keeper for the mind. It acts as a filter.

If someone tried to present you with a belief that doesn’t match your belief system, then your conscious mind will filter that belief and not let it in.

In other words, the belief isn’t congruent or in agreement with already held beliefs.

If for example, someone told you that you are “dumb”, your conscious mind will filter this statement and let you realize that you are not really dumb.

The Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind obeys the commands it receives from the conscious mind—up to a point.

It stores all of your previous life experiences, your beliefs, your memories, your skills, all the situations you’ve been through and all the images you’ve ever seen.

The subconscious mind is the storage place for habitual thinking, believing and feeling. When you face a new situation, it automatically sends these habitual patterns to you.

So. If you have the habit of being unemployed and you consciously, with awareness, decide to get a job and you are offered employment, your subconscious mind will find a way to block this change. It will automatically remind you, in many ways, that your habit is to be unemployed.

In this situation, the subconscious will not obey the conscious.

Getting Into Congruence

There are four ways to bring the conscious and subconscious mind into agreement.

We use:

  • Words—both written and spoken
  • Images—both drawn or collaged (vision boards) or the images we speak
  • Pretend
  • And, Ask the Angels

Write and speak out-loud your prayer or the change you want to experience. Use ten-cent, every day, ordinary words. Define what you mean by words like health, wealth, prosperity, success and any others that you think everyone understands, but, when you talk to others, you find that others define the word differently.

Image the change you are praying for. Use the images you made for use with the Law of Mental Equivalence discussed last week, but this time show them to your subconscious mind and say, “See. This is what I mean. See how nicely this change helps you do your job of keeping me alive.”

Also, form this image in your mind. As you do this, point out details like:

“Look how friendly and helpful everyone at my new place of work is. Wow. Everything is so neat, orderly and clean.”

Pretend that your prayer has been answered just the way you want it to. Pretend you have the new job. Pretend your energy level has been restored. Pretend your business is experiencing the growth you desire. Pretend your children are healthy, happy and safe.

By pretend I mean to act out the desired change. If you don’t know how to do this, ask young children to teach you how. They are experts at this kind of play-acting.

And, of course. We always, no matter what, ask the angels for help.

When you speak to them say something like:

“Angels,

I know my conscious and subconscious minds are at odds. I want a change, and the change isn’t coming.

I know I have habits and past experiences that are probably blocking this change, this thing I’ve affirmed in prayer.

Would you please bring these two minds together as one about this change? Would you please help me understand how to communicate with my subconscious mind so that it willingly and easily partners with my conscious mind?

Thank you angels. I am so very grateful for the work you do for me.”

And so it is.

When Prayer Doesn’t Work part 1

June 6, 2016

Hi Everyone,

Prayer works except when it doesn’t. How can this be? Once we realize that our prayer isn’t being answered, what can we do to remedy the situation?

Spiritual leaders are constantly telling us that prayers are always answered and the answer is always “Yes”.

Personal Experience

Our personal experience tells us otherwise. Even if we take into account that the Universe does things on UT time (Universe Time), not all prayers are answered.

If this is happening to you—the job, the money, the relationship, the health you’ve prayed about isn’t appearing, the first thing you need to do is check your use of the Law of Mental Equivalence.

Law of Mental Equivalence

The Law of Mental Equivalence is the providing of an image of what is sought to the mind so that this image exists within us, not just words, but a clear, detailed, precise picture of what is desired and its accompanying feelings.

This is what vision boards help us do.

What we want to bring forth starts within, with a picture; the more detailed the image, the more specific the image, the better; the more precise the feelings associated with the bringing forth of this image, the better.

If you are praying about finding a job, describe that job in great detail. Include its location, bosses, workers, the work atmosphere and environment, the parking or transportation methods, the hours you want to work, the salary, the benefits like paid health, life and dental insurance.

Talk about what you want to gain from this job. Consider such things as skills, contacts and experience.

List what you want to give to this job and that you want to be appreciated and valued for the gift of your talent, skill, time and energy.

Give the same detailed description of the result you are praying for on each topic: relationships, health, wealth or career.

This description must include textures, colors, shapes, smells, and:

  • your definitions of words like success, health, prosperity. The Universe wants to know what success—getting what you’re praying about—looks like, feels like and acts like to you. It wants to know exactly what you mean by health. When prosperity shows up in your life, how will your life be? The same with relationships or other topics.

You will be more successful when you give the Universe a blueprint to follow and a mold to fill.

  • listing the amounts of what is desired: how much money, how many pounds, how large the home, how much the salary increase or offer. This is being specific.

The Universe wants to know the amount you think represents prosperity or wealth or more than enough or the overflow of all good. Remember to include the amount of savings when praying for prosperity or abundance.

  • naming the feelings which will come when your prayer is answered. Include feelings like safety, certainty, personal peace and satisfaction.

Take time to do this because it does take time. As you become more aware of what you want, add to your description or subtract from it.

And, as always, ask the Angels of all of Us for help.

Angels of all of Us

Angels of all of Us,

You know the desire we are seeking. Please help us describe it in great detail. Help us identify and name the feelings this desire generates. Please make us aware of everything we haven’t considered about this desire.

We thank you.

And so it is.
