Anatomy–a tool for healing

Anatomy–a tool for healing

Sept. 25, 2017

Hi Everybody,

This website is dedicated to explaining techniques for the healing of the self.

However, know that once something has entered your energy field, it takes a team to remove it. That team could consist of Western, Eastern, Alternative, and Ancient medical professionals. The team definitely includes you and Spirit.

Once of the biggest helps you can give yourself is to learn anatomy. Oh, not to the exactness that a medical professional does, but to the degree that you understand the systems of the body and how they interact.

It is amazing how something minor causes something major.

For example, as you all know I’m in the process of deleting asthma and its accompanying partners in disease from my life.

When I started this journey, I had no idea that acid reflux and asthma were intimately connected to the point that some health professionals think that acid reflux is the cause of asthma.

I’m not here to decide that truth; medical scientists are more able and better equipped to find the truth of that matter than I.

However, as I explored these connections I saw how these two are creating a problem with my ears, not my hearing but my ears. So, I’m hard at work understanding and eliminating the causes of acid reflux.

Sorry, but the little purple pill is not a cure; it may help relieve some of the discomfort so that I can more fully concentrate on curing and healing this condition but that’s all it will do. And, as many of us fear, it might possibly do damage or cause another type of problem.

So, take a look at the physical problem that’s showing up in your life and the body structures it uses. Are there any overlays?

Do not expect your doctor to explain any of this to you. Remember that your office visit is timed. Doctor’s no longer are given the time to explain things to you. You really are expected to figure things out for yourself.

And so it is.

Cure vs Heal

Cure vs Heal

Sept. 12, 2017

Hi Everyone,

This website is dedicated to explaining techniques for the healing of the self by the self. Know that once something has entered your energy field, it takes a team to remove it.

This team includes Western medicine, Eastern medicine, alternative medicine, ancient medicine, Spirit and you.

The “you” part is why this blog exists: to help you do your part.

Defining ‘cure’ and ‘heal’

‘Cure’ means to eliminate a physical disease condition.

‘Heal’ means to have an emotional and/or spiritual recovery.

What we want is both a cure and a healing. We want physical, emotional and spiritual wellness and wholeness.

Responsibility of the Healer

Anyone who steps on the path of being a healer—it doesn’t matter if the goal is to heal oneself or to heal oneself and others—it doesn’t matter if it’s a study of Western or Eastern or alternative or ancient healing—discovers the same truth: there’s a lot more to the work of healing than meets the eye.

It’s easy when a healer fails to achieve a cure or a healing to blame the one to be healed as not being ready, or on some agreement made before coming to Earth, or some form of destiny.

Instead of blaming or explaining, both the healer and the one to be healed must strengthen their connection to Source. Do this by meditation, prayer and practicing whatever sacred rituals seem right.

And so it is.

New Definition of American Citizenship

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 the press, peaceful assembly and petition to yourself, your family, your geographic community and to all others than you are an American.

For those of you 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.

Hi Everyone,

This site is dedicated to teaching techniques that help us heal our selves so that we can help heal our world.

This weekend, I took an online seminar about healing.

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 job loss, or have some type of financial upset, or have bullying, or like the people experiencing Hurricane Harvey?

This web site seems to have good information concerning PTSD:  

Most people who lived during the time of the Holocaust suffer from PTSD.

Before this weekend, I’ve met two Holocaust survivors. I have no doubt that this happened, that it was horrifying, and that people still suffer from this event.

When the media showed the white supremists marching and chanting in  Charlottesville, VA, US, summer 2017, I felt fear. I thought about what it must have been like for people living in pre WWII Europe. Of course, the fear is exactly what the people who did the chanting wanted to happen.

Seminar Attendee
Attending the seminar was a person born the same year as I to parents who sheltered Jews in the Netherlands during WWII. Her mother lived in terror. Even after the war, the mother was so terrified that she refused to leave her home, so the child grew up without the support of a loving mother and without feeling safe and rooted.

The seminar attendee grew up in fear and was suffering from terrified inner child and PTSD.

I saw the terror in and on this person. I saw some of it dissolve.

What To Do
Review your life for stressful events. Are you divorced or divorcing? Have you lived through some natural or man-made disaster? Have you had economic or relationship or family struggles? Have you experienced homelessness or car-lessness or job loss or the loss of a person or pet?

Did you go to a 12 Step program or supportive group or get therapy/counseling help? Please consider doing so. Remember that it takes a team to get through this life.

Allow yourself to grieve. Especially if you are American, you probably didn’t take time to grieve about the event. Do so now.

Allow yourself to cry. Allow yourself to feel anger, frustration, disappointment, etc.

Write down what comes up for you, and then, in a safe place and time–don’t start a forest fire!–, burn the writing; release it; let it go.  Sometimes, I have to write about an event several times before I feel release.

Forgive yourself. Forgive others.  You can’t heal without forgiving. Yes, even white supremists.

Give thanks for your survival and your healing.

An Additional Step
Allow others to cry. Allow others to express their fear, anger, etc in safe, non violent ways.

Be extra kind to everyone you meet. We simply don’t know what they’ve been through or are going through.

And so it is.

Stop hating yourself

Aug. 28, 2017

Hi Everyone,

This blog is dedicated to explaining techniques that we can do to heal our self.

One of those techniques helps us to stop hating our self. Many people weren’t aware of hating themselves until they did this activity. Yes, this is ‘dig deep’ activity.

Step 1
Once a week, list one thing that you dislike or hate about you. Notice: this is what you dislike or hate, and, not what your mom, or best friend, or boss might dislike or hate about you.

For example, you might hate yourself for having a car accident the years ago; or, you might hate yourself because you never know how to respond to someone who asks for help; or, you might hate yourself because you can’t stand a certain person.

Why do this
When I do this, all kinds of things come up. This is good. These buried memories that bring up hate, anger, fear or confusion can make us physically or emotionally ill.

Step 2
Forgive yourself for the incident and for hating yourself for having this response.

Step 3
Change your belief about the incident to love for yourself.

For example,
You could love yourself for being wise enough to know which people to welcome into your life and which to send on their way; you could love yourself for stating your truth; you could love yourself for having an auto accident and then improving your driving skills.

It will take time, but eventually you will get rid of any negative feelings you have about you; you will gain energy and health; and, most important of all, you will love, appreciate and value who you are.

And so it is.

Charlottesville and Self-Responsibility

Aug. 22, 2017

Hi Everyone,

This is the Opening Prayer I gave Sunday at church. I hope it gives another viewpoint to consider in regards to what happened in Charlottesville, VA US  this past week.

This was, also, published on my Ask the Angels Coaching site.

Hi Everyone,

It’s a gorgeous day and both the end and the beginning of an interesting week. This past week affirmed for me that the self-healing work I’ve been doing is very much needed.

Most of you know that I have the intention of deleting asthma from my life. You may or may not know that the medical profession says this condition is incurable so I’ve had to depend totally on Spirit for guidance on what to do and what not to do.

I was led to Deborah King, a spiritual teacher and energy healer.

One of her assignments is to consider a daily question and journal about it. So every day I copy the daily question and I journal.

In the beginning, as I was copying the question, I would think, “this has nothing to do with me. I’m not like this. I’ve not experienced this or that”; and then, as soon as my pen hit the line where I put down my thoughts and feelings, all this “hate, frustration, depression, confusion, all this blame game, it isn’t my fault, I’m oh so innocent” comes pouring out.

So, when Charlottesville happened, Spirit very quickly reminded me of the Law of Reflection which states that what I see out there is what’s going on in here and if I want to change what’s going on out there, I have to change what’s going on in here first.

When I started to protest and say I wasn’t one of them, Spirit quickly showed me all the journaling I’ve been doing.

I recalled my mother teaching me that “point a finger at someone else, see three pointing back at me” which was her way of teaching the Jesus teaching that says “he who is without sin, let him cast the first stone” and her way of teaching “to remove the telephone pole from my own eye before attempting to remove the splinter from my brothers”.

 Wow. What a call to action.

I thought of my Czechoslovakian grandmother and German grandfather and knew that I had to stop blaming the elite, the communists, the capitalists and everyone else for what happened to them in their old countries, and on the way to the US and in the US.

I thought of my Appalachian ancestors and realized that I had to stop blaming the elite, the mine owners, the capitalists and everyone else for what happened to them.

I thought of what it took to pass the amendments that give everyone the right to vote and the fight that ended in defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment in the 70’s and early 80’s.

I have to let go of my despair, my judgments, my hate, my absolute hatred of silk stocking row. 

This is a work in progress. No not easy, but absolutely essential.

It is time to do what the Founding Fathers of the US—Franklin, Jefferson, Washington and the Iroquois Confederacy— are depending on me to do: take responsibility for what happened.

It is the same for all of us. The only way our country can heal—and Charlottesville shows that we are in need of self-healing—is for each of us to do the work of self-healing.

No one gets excused. No one is let off the hook.

Just as we have to love our self before we can love anyone else, we have to heal our self before we can heal anyone or anything else.

We begin this process as we always do—with affirmative prayer: If you would join me now. If you would follow along silently, changing whatever you wish, letting go of what you’re not ready to do or don’t agree with

Simply acknowledge the presence of Spirit. Allow Spirit to speak to and with you.

This is what I know:

I know there is one Universal Source of all there is, was and will be. I know this Source is all knowing, all powerful, all giving and forgiving and everywhere present.

This Source, this Universal Intelligence, this Power for Good, this Spirit is right here, right now. Always has been, always will be.

It flows in, as and through me. I breath it in and breath it out. I have my beingness, doingness and havingness within its energy field. Nothing separates me from it, or it from me.

I am one with Source Energy or Universal Intelligence or whatever the preferred name for Spirit is. I am one with all life.


I focus on Spirit, on truth and on love. And, at the same time, I recognize that I have darkness.

It is only when I recognize that I have darkness that I can bring it into my awareness and then, with the help of Spirit, transform that darkness into Light. The transformation of darkness into Light is the true meaning of healing.

I am able to heal. I was given this ability when I was created. I use this ability now.

I root out the true cause of darkness. I asked Spirit to go to the very first time the ideas, feelings, beliefs, habits and practices that allowed darkness to enter my beingness, my DNA, my family’s DNA and my ancestral lineage and remove those causes.

Every belief that says it’s okay to be abused or to be the abuser, every feeling that says I’m not worthy or someone else is not worthy, every action that says I or anyone else isn’t good enough, doesn’t know enough, is not made of the same materials as me, every thought that says I or someone else doesn’t come from Source, every teaching that says there’s not enough with plenty left over is hereby uprooted and permanently removed.

In the vacuum created by that removal is placed the ideas, feelings, beliefs, thoughts, habits, practices and traditions that produce all good, that produces the experiences of Oneness with all there is, that produces self-responsibility and self-governance, that produces instant recognition of truth and that allows real love to blossom, flourish and spread to all on our planet and into every star system no matter how distant.

I stand in the sweetness of inclusion, of prosperity, of health and of wholeness. I welcome all to join me. I welcome Spirit.

I stand in total love and in total truth. I love myself, treat myself with respect and sweetness and then treat all life with love, respect and sweetness.

I recognize and honor my worthiness, my deservingness, my connection to Spirit and to all life; and then I treat all life as worthy, deserving and connected to Spirit and all life.

I am grateful for the installation of acceptance, of compassion, of empathy. I am grateful for the experience of inclusion, of truth and of love. I am grateful for right actions, for right being, for right thinking, for right having. I am grateful for wisdom and intelligence.

I am grateful for all that I am, for all that I do and for all that I have. I am grateful for the eternal presence of Spirit.

I release this word into the Mind of Spirit and into the action of Universal Law. 

And so it is.

Love Yourself First

August 16, 2017
Hi Everyone,
I received a message from Thomas, communication angel, and Jamie, archangel.
They say that the human heart is unhappy, so unhappy that it has called upon them and the other angels and archangels to help us love ourselves again.

They remind us that humans have to love themselves before they can love anyone or anything else; this includes this thing we call God or whatever name we want to use when we are partnering with the Power for Good.

They want us to send these signals out into the world:
“I am safe.”
“I am worthy.”
“I am loveable.”
“Life is sweet.”
“I belong here.”
Do this by thinking and saying these words out loud several times each day.
And, Thomas and Jamie want us to do at least one thing each day that tells our heart that we love and honor it. One thing like taking a walk outside under trees, or sitting outside in the moonlight, or listening to the ocean, or listening to meditative drumming.
And so it is.
