What’s Going On?

Everyday, it seems there are more environmental calamities, war with Isis, North Korea, Trump but that’s another story, etc.  People might be wondering why all this is happening.  They may blame God or it’s just how things are.  I had taken a class by a spiritual person who stated every two thousand years our planet goes from patriarchal to matriarchal.  He went on to say we are in the process of moving into a matriarchal time. In patriarchal times there is disharmony on our planet, greed, lust for power, wars are the mainstay.  In a matriarchal time there is harmony, humanity is ruled by the heart and oneness.

If people knew we had to go through these times in order for a “New Humanity” unfold.  This could help, at the very least, an understanding.  God is not the doer of this chaos, humans are; it is part of the healing and journey.  How you help the  process of making a positive shift.  Be kind to others as you would to a dear one.  Have the courage to let go of your fears and doubts.  Forgive yourself for not living up to your own expectations.  If you have done harm to someone physically or emotionally ask yourself what caused you to do so?

I have done many sessions and it is amazing how many people hold on to guilt.  Many have held on to this emotion for a very very long time.  I asked a client “what has it gotten you to hold on to guilt”?  People would answer by not knowing.  I would strongly suggest, “it’s time to let go.”  Forgiving yourself goes a long way to releasing feelings that no longer serve you.  When I ask my clients what forgiveness means, many do not know.  The answer is letting go. When you  let go, you can  heal.  When you  heal you help the planet heal.  You, me, the planet, and God are all one.  There is no separateness.

Yes,  it takes courage to let go.  When a person lets go there identity on a conscious or subconscious level changes.  Many individuals have identified themselves by their negative beliefs.  There is another component to this.  We attract situations that are both negative and positive.   If  harm is physically or emotionally  done to a person, the one who received the harm attracted to themselves.  It is never one way!

Heaven or Hell, The Debit Credit Life

Often I get, like many of you,  a person e-mailing me saying I have won a great sum of money.  I use to write them back and tell that person because of their greed by taking advantage of the less fortunate, they will suffer.  Not only in their next life but will experience tremendous suffering upon death the hell state.

People who  take advantage of people will have to pay the consequences. There is no escape!!  Someone I know worked for a person in a loan business  when interest rates were very high. I believe the early eighties.  My friend stated he would  obtain no more then $150  finders by providing loan applications.

My friend went on  to say, the lender would not  take loans for a rental property and person would have to show they could pay a loan back.  The bank was set up in the Bahamas.  He went on to state “their were text messages to Mexico City and Hong Kong.”  All seemed quite legit.

When none of the loans went through he eventually quit.  While working a nine to five position a police officer came to his place employment and asked for his signature.  He soon found out his boss was arrested for scamming and in jail.    A few months later my friend was handcuffed from his place of employment and taken to jail believing he was somehow involved in this fraudulent activity.

He was able to get out the same day on bail.  My friend called a psychic who stated he was once a thief of Bagdad.  He realized he must have stolen from people in a past life and this was payback.

This is called Karma.  What you reap you get back, both good and bad.

Jesus in another light.

Excerpts from the book Avataric Advents written by Jim McGrew

There is one secret about Jesus which the Christians do not know.  When Jesus was crucified, he did not die; he entered the state of Nirvikalp Samadhi ( “I am God state without bodily consciousness”.  On the third day, he again became conscious of his body traveled  secretly in disguise eastward (with some of his apostles) to India.  This was called Jesus resurrection.

After reaching India, he traveled farther east to Rangoon in Burma where he remained for some  time.  He then went to Kashmir where

here he settled.  When his work was finished on earth, he dropped his body and entered Nirvikalp Samadhi permanently.

In 1933  Meher Baba showed some western disciples a hill in Harvan, northeast of Srinagar Kashmir State, India and  told them:  There is the place where two of Crhist’s apostles, Bartholomew and Thaddeus buried his body; they had accompanied him from Palestine.

Is it possible that Jesus had to state he was the Son of God because humanity as a whole would not have accepted Jesus  hadsaid I am the Avatar, I am God in Human Form.   Something to ponder……….Robert

Swami Satchidanada

 

Meaning of Swami means master;  striving for mastery over one’s smaller self and habit patterns, so that the eternal self within comes shining through.

In those early days I was living with several people at Stinson Beach, just north of San Francisco.  There  were two musicians or maybe three as well as my wife, at that time,  who was the lead singer.  It so happened after eating dinner I would take it upon myself to do dishes while the musicians would go practice.  I do not remember if the other women who had relationships with the men helped or how much they helped. However, I remember getting angry while they practiced.

While still living in Stinson Beach, I  found out Swami Satchidanada was giving a talk at San Francisco University.  I decided to go and listen to him.  The first thing I remember was walking into the talk and feeling such love emanating from him.  He had long  beautiful hair  with a twinkle in his eye.  He said, (I’m paraphrasing) “some people think that in order to be a guru one must have long hair and a beard.  The reason I have long hair is because I like it.”

And of course, He spoke of doing  dishes in a house with other people.  As I recall, Swami Satchidanada said the other people would leave the dishes and go to the movies.  He went on say, “I came to the realization I do the dishes or I go to the movies.  What a concept. 🙂

Seeing Swami Satchidanada and feeling such love helped me on  my journey of self discovery, mainly letting go.

Detachment

There are three things people want from others.  The need to be liked, accepted, and affirmed.  In the early 70’s I was  Head Counselor for boys eighteen and younger in a group home.  I was put in that position  without proper training simply because I was next in line.   When interviewing new hire,  I would ask what does love mean to you?  That person would be hired based upon the answer.

I was also somewhat new to following Meher Baba as my Master or God.  In fact, I purchased Don’t Worry Be Happy posters and gave each of the 18 boys one.  After returning from a weekend, I found all 18 posters on my door.  I later found out the administrator had hit one of the kids………………………..

Also, I was in need of control, and did not give ample latitude to my staff.  Eventually they all turned on me.  In the beginning I was liked but after six months or so I was disliked and not accepted. 

After leaving the position as Head Counselor I traveled to India to visit Meher Baba’s Tomb (he died January 31, 1969) and living disciples.  While there I  met a couple of Australians who shared a story about a recent typhoon.  Part of the dialogue had to do with toilets and such.  I over heard someone who must have been listening to our conversation state “all he knows is shit and piss.”  I was devastated by someone criticizing me.  I soon went to Meher Baba’s Tomb and asked why someone who did not know me, “put me down.”  After what seemed a long long time, Meher Baba internally answered  “I need to let go of praise and blame.”  Wow, what a concept.  From that moment on I learned to be detached from both.

So many people look outside themselves for the reflection of  who they are.  Yes, it is nice to be liked, accepted and affirmed but inevitably someone will come along and judge you.  Eventually each person must like, accept, and affirm themselves no matter how  viewed.  Until that happens that person will never be truly whole.  A hint, “your inner child holds a key.”

Spirit Guides

Part of ones journey to self discovery could be having a relationship with a Spirit Guide.  A Guide could be a relative who past on, Native American Spirit Animal, Angel, light being etc.

In 1991 I graduated from the Institute Of Transpersonal Hypnotherapy.  The institute taught its students how to connect with ones Higher Self.  The Higher Self has been with us for all our life times.  This part does not judge us and is wise. I feel the Higher Self is detached from our ups and downs.  

By learning how to connect with my Higher Self made it easy for me to  learn how to connect with my Personal Spirit Guide.  Since I was learning about the Native American culture, my first guide was a Crow.  I asked the Crow what am  I supposed to learn from you?  It stated “I am here to turn your heart inside out.”

I remember a psychic fair in Montana where an individuals Personal Spirit Guide was in the form of an egg.  This guide had black shorts  with suspenders and was on the top of a wall.  The guide would not fall to the ground.  When I asked what it was to teach her, the guide said balance.

My Personal Guides changed as my energy changed.  My many years with Guides have taught me that Guides are energetically close to our Earth Plane, hence easy to access.  In order to meet your Personal Spirit Guide it is important  to relax.  When a person is relaxed the mind is much less dominant.   There are mischievous Guides as well who do not have ones best interest in mind.  However, there are a few simple things to do to ensure that the mischievous ones do not interfere with ones True Spirit Guide.  I have helped individuals for over twenty years attain their personal Spirit Guide as well as teaching Spirit Guide workshops. Personal Spirit Guides provide insight on how to achieve ones highest good, learning, and growth.

Letting Go of Love?

The last blog I wrote was about goodness as a building block to love.  I also showed an NLP exercise where a family member projected a negative thought onto their child.  Another process of uncovering is becoming aware of a pattern that one keeps drawing to themselves.  I will use a personal story as an example.

I remember being in a crib and telling my  mother that I loved her.  I am not sure of the age but being in a crib………….. My mother died when I was between the age of four and five.  When I became an adult and fell in love with a woman that person would eventually leave me.  For example, I was dating a woman for two years.  My parents met hers, we were going to get married.  At that time I was working as a Window Trimmer (decorating mannequins and such in a window) for a clothing company.  I would rent new cars when picking her up.  I eventually decided to buy a used car instead to save money.  It was an old 1964 Chevrolet.

Her father saw the old Chevrolet the first day I picked her up with  that car.  A far cry for the new cars I had rented from Hertz Rent A Car.  After seeing this car, he thought I was marrying her for her money. Well, that was not the case. He decided I was not a good match for his daughter.  So we broke up.

In Seattle, I had again fallen in love.  This woman decided to leave me in Seattle and visit her old boyfriend in CA.  After two weeks, once again heart broken, I decided to  check in and ask myself, why I had attracted this situation.  After meditating I got it.  “I need to let go of Love.”  This meant, I should not hold onto love but let go.  If I truly loved someone,  I should only want what was best for them and not myself. Once  I got it, I called a close friend and told her what happened.  As soon as I hung up the phone with my close friend, my girlfriend who visited her old boyfriend called me.

From that moment on my relationship with love for a woman shifted for the better.

Good

There is so much to write and yet at the same time, very  little  to write.  Love is the key but how to you get their?  How does it become a part of your everyday life?  One needs to build a foundation, to know you are Good.   To help you, write down all you know to be good about yourself.  It does not matter if  your mind tries to sabotage those feelings or thoughts which may happen.  Keep at it.   If you need to, pause and reflect on what you have done in your life that is good.   You were born good.  Goodness is the building blocks to love.

Many have had a mother, father, family member project their own negative stuff on to their child. It is that aspect that keeps you from moving forward.  You come from Spirit, God,  which is Love personified.  Yes, you may have bad karma  but that negative belief can still change when you believe or know you are good.

You are the story of your journey.  You can begin to change your story by shifting your belief system to goodness.  Negative is easier since it is familiar.  Yes its scary to make the shift, since negative beliefs are more familiar then positive beliefs.  Familiarity is safe. It takes courage to make the shift.  As you release the false belief it creates a shift in your feelings and thoughts.

Here is an NLP exercise that can give you a clue to your  past.  Use a family member.

  1. Ask what do I want from X that would satisfy me?
  2. What would that do that is really positive?
  3. And what would that do that is even more positive?
  4. And what would that do that is even more positive?

Take the answers as far as you can go.  This is a clue to what you need to give yourself. As a child, especially the first seven years, we take on what is projected on to us.  Again, a family member or members project their own shadow or negativity on to others.  Its usually more prevalent within the family dynamic.

I hope this helps.  E-mail me if you need help.

Feelings

Way back in time I read a book  called The language of feelings by Dr. David Viscott.  He named several  important feelings and the reason for them. Listed below are the feelings he listed.

Anxiety: The fear of being hurt or losing something.  Anxiety can be felt in the stomach, heart, or shoulders, etc.

Anger: Caused by loss or hurt. Anger can be felt in the head or neck.  As an example, my stepmother had migraines.

Worry: Wants, uncertainty change, possibility about things going wrong (this was stated by Meher Baba).

Guilt:  Anger turned inward

Unrelieved guilt or anger can turn to depression.

Our emotions or physical body can provide answers to what and how we feel.  From a spiritual point of view we must own what we feel.  No one has the power to make us feel a certain way.  It takes courage to begin the process of owning what one feels.

A short Crow story

When I left my apartment, I saw many Crows on a wire.  Soon after I heard a noise, a crow fell from the wire and died.  All the Crows, or seemed like all the Crows, started cawing.  A neighbor was about  to put it in the garbage.

I asked the neighbor not to so that I could bury it.  He obliged by saying “cool.” As soon as I buried the Crow in the ground the other Crows stopped  cawing.  Crows are very smart, are interconnected with each other, and family oriented.
