I Am Presence

This is a chapter from my book for you to enjoy…

(Meditation link and photo at bottom of page) 

I was in the bath tub enjoying a hot lavender, rosewood, and frankincense bubble bath. I was in a pleasant meditative state as my body relaxed and my mind wandered off and back again, and I could feel myself hovering above my body, looking down at myself.

“This is interesting,” I thought.

I wondered if this is what the Masters, Angels and beings see when they look at us. Do they have this feeling of levitation? I let my spirit climb until I felt as though I were somewhere else, but unsure of where that was. It was calm, peaceful and I was experiencing a bliss that I hadn’t experienced before. When I returned to my body, I realized an entire hour had passed and my bath water was cool. I grounded myself using the anchor technique Kalie had taught me and emerged a little cold and a whole lot wrinkled. I dried myself off with my favourite fluffy blue towel, dressed in my comfy sweats and combed my hair. Just as I sat down for breakfast, now ravenous, St. Germain arrived. He sat at the table with me re-capping our previous lesson on crystals, grids, Elementals, and alchemy while I ate my quinoa with a poached egg on top. I had been practicing and had several crystal grids on the go. We chatted and did the typical Q and A until all my inquiries had been addressed.

I had been reading a book on different dimensions and asked St. Germain what he thought about parallel realities and if we or I could access them to assist in some way. He told me that the realization that we live in a world with several realities can be very confusing to some people, and that as humans in a third dimensional reality, it challenges our brains in many ways.

He explained, “From a religious perspective, western religions imply there is an impenetrable obstacle between the realms of the physical and spiritual suggesting you need some kind of external go-between in order to experience or understand the spiritual realms. This is not true, but before you can fully accept who you truly are, you as a people must overcome the illusion of separation.” He continued by saying, “It is no coincidence that you are on the Earth plane in a time when science has proven that energy or sub-atomic particles from unseen realms can be measured. I know you have an affinity to science, Carol. It is from previous lifetimes you spent studying the scientific arts. Today, science has broken down some of the unseen obstacles that some religions have attempted to create between matter and energy. It is an exciting time for humanity to come to a clearer understanding, move forward and make huge shifts in the consciousness of your planet.”

I thought about what he said and different thoughts bombarded my mind. Looking for confirmation as to what I was seeing in my third eye I asked, “So, is the material Universe made from the same basic ‘stuff’ as the spiritual realm?”

He smiled and whispered softly as though someone else where listening to our conversation, “Excellent question, the frequency of matter in 3D has simply been lowered into a different vibrational spectrum so your mind sees it as a solid substance rather than vibrating energy. This is one of the reasons that the illusion of separation between Spirit and matter has occurred. In reality, the spiritual realm is interpenetrating with the material Universe at all times.”

I looked deeply into his pale bluish-purple eyes and said, “I get it now, so those people who think seeing is believing are totally off.” I began laughing and he joined in for a good chuckle.

St. Germain held his hand out for me to take. As I slipped my hand in his I felt my vibration began to increase until I was vibrating at such a high level I could no longer see myself in the mirror hanging on the wall. I looked at my hands and body. I could see myself and him clearly but in a more transparent way. Then I gazed into the mirror again, nope, no one was there.

“This is cool and weird at the same time”, I said. It was an incredibly uneasy feeling, being so used to seeing my reflection in a mirror and now I am standing right here and nothing.

St. Germain sensed my uneasiness and explained, “You see, Carol, the world, our senses and especially our minds program us to believe that we are disconnected beings when in reality we are extensions of a greater spiritual part of ourselves. We all have higher and lower aspects of our beings. The higher parts exist in the spiritual realm and are not affected by anything in the material realm. The lower parts are the vehicle for our experiences and our expression in the material world or on the Earth plane.”

He released my hand and my vibration began to lower itself again. This time he held his vibrational pattern so I couldn’t physically see him. I looked into the mirror and, viola, I appeared to be back. I felt him touch me to re-assure me of his presence. As he began to lower his vibration he re-appeared. Even though I understood the premise of vibration, it wasn’t until that very moment that it really sunk in.

“In the spiritual realm, everything seems more transparent because it is composed of higher energies. As you experience higher levels of the spiritual realm, you encounter higher and more intense vibrations,” he clarified. Then he proceeded to say, “I would now like to show you the unique and different aspects of your Higher Selves. Take my hand and come with me.”

We proceeded to move into several new aspects of our Higher Selves. Each one was so completely unique and different from the next.

My experience went something like this:

  1. My High Self looked almost like an angel standing above me. The High Self governs a form of intuition. It is our High Self that is watching over us and helping to steer us in the direction we intended to go when we created our spiritual contract or our current life plan. Our High Self knows where we’re supposed to be, who we’re supposed to meet and when. Once we’ve tuned in to our High Self, we are able to get key information about our life plan and purpose. It’s that little voice that talks to us, often in our own voice, that regrettably most of us don’t listen too.
  2. The Body Elemental is a being that knows what we need in order to physically heal everything from dis-ease to nutritional requirements. This is not an aspect of ourselves but a being that has been connected to us though each and every incarnation. It is important for us to acknowledge it, get to know it, and to become friends with it if we want to stay healthy and whole. The Body Elemental accompanies a soul on each incarnation throughout its entire soul journey and is able to retain the knowledge and wisdom of each successive lifetime. We sometimes abuse our physical bodies, which damages and hurts our Body Elemental. This can create a resistance within it to support us when we try to heal from illnesses.
  3. The Christed Self is the aspect of self that is in Mastery. I saw other Masters lingering in this realm. The word ‘Christ’ refers to an energy, consciousness, or function within the Spiritual Hierarchy of Masters. The Christed Self is a person’s own personal mentor, guru, prophet, and master. It is the part of us that is disciplined, wise and knowing. When we connect with self mastery, we demonstrate that which we have learned and mastered. Through it, we can accomplish whatever we choose.
  4. The Cosmic Self is the aspect of self that is connected to Cosmic Awareness, a consciousness that embraces all things. When we love ourselves, we experience an expanded vibration manifesting itself as awareness, comprehension, and understanding. It is the Cosmic Self taking infinitely different points of view from all that is. It is a though we are one and the same looking out through billions of differently coloured eyes. This is the best place to go in order to connect with the Elemental Beings in nature like crystals or plant energy.
  5. The Universal Self is the aspect of self that is connected to the source of all things in this Universe. It is an expansion, which never has an end, because Universal Consciousness is endless, limitless, boundless, and without any boundaries. In this aspect of self, a person is freed from the space time continuum. It is the best aspect of ourselves to connect with ET Beings from other planets like the Pleiades or Sirians.
  6. The Multi-Dimensional Self is the aspect of self that creates reflections that are capable of responding more directly to the planes and dimensions we travel through. Our energetic, Multi-Dimensional Self exists simultaneously in past, present and future, in all realities, and on all dimensions. That is why we are able to do timeline travel and release work, removing old patterns from the past and installing new ones in the future.
  7. The I AM Presence is the aspect of self that is God or the Creator. A person’s I AM Presence contains the divine blueprint for their individuality and all the characteristics that make them a unique expression of God. In the spiritual realm, all beings have a sense of oneness without sameness, what human beings call God. All conscious beings realize that all life is one and comes from the same Source. Although we are individuals, we see that our individuality is an expression of a higher Being that reaches back to the Creator as the source of all life. The I AM Presence represents the God-identity of the individual soul.

The experience was so amazing I could have stayed within each and every aspect for days.

As we began to come back into third dimensional vibration, I looked dreamy eyed at St. Germain, took a deep breath, and said, “Thank you.”

“Remember that you can never lose your ability to create a sense of oneness with your Higher Selves.” He winked at me, bid me fare-well and disappeared.

Later that day when St. Germain checked in with me, he explained that if we want to access those aspects of ourselves that we could do so through a relatively easy visualization meditation. He taught me to begin the visualization by connecting a golden light from the center of the Earth up to my root chakra. This will keep me grounded.

Then he guided me through the process in a soft and comforting voice, “Imagine the color gold coming from the Earth through your body and out the top of your head. As it passes through your body, it activates each chakra in the colour gold. After it passes through your body imagine the gold going to each aspect of yourself and filling each aspect with golden light. When you get to your I AM Presence or God Self, let the gold continue into the heart of The Divine. Then begin to imagine a white light coming from Source and entering your I AM Presence. Feel the connection. Begin to bring the white light down through all aspects of your being including your physical body and all the chakras. Continue bringing the white light down into the core of Mother Earth. This will assist all the Elementals, divas, animal and third dimensional beings to connect to Source as well. You can project this energy out into the solar system and into your Universe, then into other Universes.”

As he spoke I had the opportunity to do the meditation and to firmly imprint it into my memory banks, or as he would say, ‘Remember how to do it.’

2 I Am

Even if this is the only exercise you do from this book, it will change your life forever!

This is a slightly faster version of the meditation that doesn’t go to all aspects of self, but it does guide you to your High-self, Christed-self and I Am Presence. It’s not perfect technically, and I will do another version, but it is something for you in the meantime, lol

It’s a nice way to start or complete your day. I use it to connect to my clients I Am Presence before I begin any work on them. Enjoy!

My Book is Coming Soon…

 

Here are the full testimonials from my website:

Happy 2017

Good Morning World! Happy 2017

I realized I didn’t much blog last year, at all! I did however write a book. I sent it off to several publishers just before mercury went retrograde in December 2016, fingers crossed I’ll be a published author soon.

My year definitely started off with an unusual twist. I usually spend the first day setting up my vision board for the new year. Last year I created a beautiful PowerPoint presentation that I transformed into a screensaver that changed every 15 seconds so I could watch it each morning and run through my affirmations while tapping them into my consciousness via my thymus.

This year I fell ill just as the new year was approaching and I was too sick to dedicate much time and energy to my visions. However, I did attempt to start several times but just couldn’t follow through. On January 2nd, I was taken away by ambulance because my throat closed and I couldn’t breathe. I lay in the hospital for hours, unable to sleep with the constant chatter of nurses, doctors and other sick patients. In my room the constant noise of machines spitting up of reports, beeping when my breathing changed, blood pressure pump starting up every 15 minutes, heart monitor, etc. was not conducive to sleep.

I lay there trying to block out the obtrusive florescent lighting and crazy sounds. I began thinking of my health, I’m a fairly healthy person, heck I’m in the business of keeping people healthy. I hike daily for one to one and a half hours in an old growth forest filled with copious amounts of oxygen. I came to the conclusion I was simply cleansing and purging from the year. 2016 was a challenging year, not only for me but for many of us.

I sold my house, ended a twelve-year relationship and moved to a city where I didn’t know anyone on Vancouver Island. I followed my guidance and ended up here in Nanaimo, BC. In fact, I completed several relationships, some with family that broke my heart, some with friends that also broke my heart and some with students, again heart breaking. As I write, I realize just heart breaking 2016 was for me and I am suddenly overwhelmed by my strength and endurance. Listening to that little voice and following our divine plan is not always easy, but I know something awesome will come of it all.

So, yes, I have lots of cleansing to do. I woke up today feeling alive, spiritually alive for the first time since I moved here in August. I have been loving being in nature every day and in constant gratitude, but something just didn’t click. It was like I lost my mojo. I was still following spiritual practice but not whole heartedly.

I started today by sitting in bed with a awesome dark roast cup of coffee in one hand and my journal in the other. Maggie my little schnoodle lay curled up at the end of the bed, opening an eye and looking at me now and then. I pondered what to do and decided to activate my Merkabah. I decided to take several holograms out into the time space continuum for clearing and healing. I chose a focus (my book getting published) and saw what turned up. The holograms that showed up surprised me; Success, Fame, Acknowledgement, Financial Freedom and Creativity. I brought them to the time space continuum and cleaned them up, next to Cosmic Consciousness and filled with them gold, then off to Source and added to each what they asked for.

Success wanted to be connected to the other holograms, Fame wanted influence to assist the masses, Acknowledgement wanted rewards of sorts, Financial Freedom wanted ability to assist and contribute and Creativity wanted to be inspired by Source to assist the collective consciousness to move forward. I filled them all with what they required and brought them back to my physical body. Then I just sat there just thinking, “Huh”.

Next, I decided to pull a card from my deck, WISDOM OF THE HIDDEN REALMS – by Colette Baron-Reid & Jena Della Grottaglia … to decide what my focus for the month should be. I got the Ice Queen.

8321c43a55241cfcc02d3eb576068460

“Ice Queen  ~  28  ~

ideas preserved, non-action, entitlement

The Ice Queen has come to block your movement for your highest good.  Let your ideas be preserved until later.  You can thaw them out and use them at another time when they will best serve.

The realm of the Ice Queen is the place of nonaction, and now is a perfect time to take a look at how far you’ve come and to ask yourself for a reclarification of your highest goals.

Not all plans can be accomplished at this moment.  In fact, putting them on ice allows for the perfect timing later on.  Don’t be too hasty in trying to reach your goal.  An even better one will present itself if you surrender and spend the winter with the Ice Queen.

Perhaps too, you are trying to do too many things at once.  This is a good occasion to choose only one thing to focus on and let the Ice Queen put the others in the deep freeze until a more appropriate time.  She’ll let you know when it’s time to let them thaw.”

Wow, it suddenly dawned on me. I try to do too much! Like in a big, huge way too much. Take last years’ vision board for instance, it was 33 pages. I must be insane, make no wonder my life went into turmoil! How can one person expect to do or change so many things and have life purr along without consequence? So, I stopped, and chose to focus on what I had just done, my Merkabah activations. I will continue with them throughout January.

I hopped out of bed, thrilled with myself for not adding too much to my plate and began preparing some food. I do tend to eat strange things for breakfast so if this might sound weird. I chose a bunch of spinach and a half of left over chicken breast from yesterday. I just put the spinach in the pan right from the sink after rinsing it so I didn’t need oil. Once it was half cooked I sliced up my chicken placed it on top and added some miso gravy. I chose a smaller plate than normal and instead of putting it all onto the dish, I took two thirds.

As I sat down, I could tell a shift had occurred. I decided to become the observer and watch. I began with a prayer of gratitude than began to eat. I made a conscious choice to put my fork down after each bite. I made eating a meditation, I felt my food. The texture, the taste, the sensation of my body accepting this nutritious meal. I took my time, chewed and finished each mouthful completely before shoveling in the next bite. No distractions, no TV, no music, no reading, just me and my food. In that moment, I made the commitment to eat all my meals like this from now on. No more shoveling food in to fill the hunger between clients or activities, no more eating on the run, no more reading at the dinner table, just me honouring the food and its healing effects on my body.

There is a minimum of eight levels of consciousness required for this choice alone.

  • Give gratitude while preparing food
  • Take only 2/3 of what is prepared
  • Make a prayer of thanks to the elementals beings who provided the food (vegetables, fruits or animals)
  • Remove all distractions, TV or reading/writing
  • Take a bite and chew it, feel it and taste it, then finish it (3 things)
  • Take another bite and do the same until complete

Then there was my second epiphany for the morning regarding doing too much. If my only vision for the year was say, health, what would that include? Well there’s the element of food which includes healthy choices, cooking styles, preparation and how to eat healthy. Then there’s activity, fitting in time, which type of activities support your body type, regularity and taking care of your post work out body with stretching and body rolling. Then there’s supplementation, making sure your nutritionally sound and taking the appropriate supplements for your body type based on your food and activities. Then there’s getting out and having fun and being fulfilled, that is critical to our health. What about balance?

My God, making one choice, just to be healthy includes changing our consciousness about literally dozens of things!!! No wonder so many people fail their new year’s resolutions. I’m pretty sure my vision board this year will only have a 3 items on it for 2017. Those alone will morph into dozens of positive modifications … yup, I’m sure glad the Ice Queen showed up this morning.

I’d like to end my first blog of the year with a video for you all, blessings…carol

 

“The Power” and the Tipping Point

This year when I was making my Christmas Card I realized I haven’t written much at all and figured I better get something on paper; or the computer.

I listened to the audio book “The Power” at the beginning of the year and set an intention to be more positive than fear based or negative and to reach a 55% tipping point of love. I set out by looking for my triggers, the small thought processes that most of us don’t consider and well, it didn’t take long for me to identify a few. If you are looking to reset your feelings and energy level, “The Power” will help you do just that.

8579016

So somehow bitching about some of the challenges we face and focusing on the conspiracies behind high gas prices, the cost of new homes in the Vancouver lower mainland or our plummeting dollar just holds so much negativity it’s not worth going there.

I decided to share some of the solutions I came up with that might help you do some shifting of your own. Listening to the book, reminded me of things that I already know, but it also got me excited about creating shifts and experimenting with the concepts. Those of you who know me, realize I don’t just read something and believe. I am a “prove it” kind of gal. My life is usually has several experiments going on at once. It’s how I learn, prove theories, grow, adapt my work and improve.

The first thing I did was create a vision board that had affirmations and photos that I put on my desktop. The slides change every  seconds which is just long enough for me to say the affirmation and feel what I am creating.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So I began to observe. Trying to remain in a state of love 24/7 is quite challenging in our time. The pace of everyday life is faster and with that comes more triggers. As I observed myself and my thoughts in certain situations, I realized that standing in line-ups generated a ton of negative thoughts. Not bad ones, but negative all the same. The idea of reaching a greater tipping point of love is to be love. I found myself thinking things like:

  • “I always choose the slow line.”
  • “Doesn’t anyone work, why are they all shopping now?”
  • Judging what I consider to be others poor food choices.
  • Focusing on screaming children and wondering how much sugar they were jacked up on.
  • Wondering what took people so long to pack their groceries.
  • …and….and….

So it hit me, yikes this is all so negative and judging, WHAT…I needed a new strategy.

  1. So now when I am forced to stand in line, I do several things. I begin going through my gratitude list, starting with the fact that I have the time and money and privilege to be in a store buying what I need or want.
  2. I smile and begin sending love and blessings to those around me.
  3. I chat to those little screaming tikes and get them laughing, giving the parent a break.
  4. I practice random acts of kindness if possible.
  5. I send grace and blessings to those who appear to be in need.

Turns out my shopping experiences are much more pleasant and I meet some pretty interesting people now.

There are 3 quotes from “The Power” that correspond with what I’m doing and they are:

  • “Life isn’t happening to you; life is responding to you.”
  • “Many people don’t know about the power of good feelings, and so their feelings are reactions or responses to what happens to them. They have put their feelings on automatic pilot, instead of deliberately taking charge of them.”
  • “Every single second is an opportunity to change your life, because in any moment you can change the way you feel.”

One of my other triggers is driving, and I do believe that to be one for many of us, lol. It’s that same thing for me about time, and business. I live in one of the fastest going cities in Canada; last time I read the statistics, Surrey acquires 1800 new residents a month, yes that’s right, a month! And you got it, they are all not as good drivers as me, hahaha. knowing the driving experience can thrust me into a negative spiral is 3/4 of the battle. Now when I get in my can I repeat these words, “I have time, I can enjoy a relaxing experience in my car.” I let people in line, I focus on kindness for new drivers, after all I was one too, I sing, I do my affirmations and I get where I’m going in record time feeling terrific. I’m still not perfect, but I’m at least 70% better.

Let’s see, another area I chose to change was how I felt about paying for things. Instead of focusing on, “I shouldn’t buy this, I don’t really need it, I should save my money, I can’t afford this, blah, blah, blah.”

I choose to say, “I have more than enough money for the things I desire and I make great buying choices.” and “I am grateful that money flows to me from so many places, sources and people.”  And…now it does!

So remember, one of the secrets of having the life you want is by tipping the scale toward love and away from negativity. When anything good happens to you in your day, give thanks. It doesn’t matter how small it is, say thank you.

These are just a few examples of what I changed up, there are more of course; in conclusion, I would have to say that my experiment on tipping the scales more toward love was successful and made an obvious difference in my life.

Happy Holidays, Blessings and Wishes for 2016

Mesothelioma and Lung Leavin’ Day

I must admit that when I was asked by Cameron Von St. James, Husband of Mesothelioma Survivor Heather Von St. James if I would participate in Lung Leavin’ Day I wasn’t sure how or what to blog. I certainly could feel empathy for Heather, Cameron and daughter Lily Rose.

Heather and Family (2)

I have had several clients who have had cancer and have been at their bed sides. It certainly is not an easy challenge for anyone, whether you are the victim of this cruel disease or the care giver of a loved one with the disease.

I have been blessed to be cancer free to date and after being diagnosed with Hep C and experiencing the treatment, I do have some idea of how ill, depressed and painful certain treatments can be. Several of my friends have family or close ties who have had lung cancer several times, some are continuing their battle today.

After doing a little research on Mesothelioma Cancer I discovered that it is the most serious of all asbestos-related diseases. The lungs are very delicate organs, they fuel us with oxygen, the body’s life-sustaining gas. The lungs process air, and are the only internal organs that are constantly exposed to the external environment. This means that anything you breathe in can affect your lungs. Germs, tobacco smoke and other harmful substances can cause damage to your airways and threaten the lungs ability to work properly, and let me tell you, there are some real nasty toxins in our environment today.

Mesothelioma can be a difficult malignancy to diagnose because the symptoms of the disease closely resemble other respiratory conditions. To make matters more complicated, these symptoms are also associated with other types of lung cancer.

My neighbour passed away of lung cancer 3 years ago now. Unfortunately it was detected too late for him. A common dilemma encountered by so many lung cancer victims is that the disease mimics so many other illnesses. Doctors will usually pass off early symptoms as allergies, possible bronchitis or even asthma first. Testing for these issues takes precious time the patient may not have, as in the case of my neighbour Barry. He had to undergo so many tests before they finally decided to test for cancer, by that time it was too late for him. Anyone who is having constant congestion, wheezing, shortness of breath or coughs should follow up with a doctor. Trust me, sometimes that nagging tickle and little cough can be something more.

In my years of doing bio-energetic analysis for clients, I have found asbestos to be in a wide variety of individuals. According to the allopathic community, “there is currently no known cure for mesothelioma, but treatments such as surgery and chemotherapy can help to improve the typical mesothelioma prognosis.” Fortunately for my clients Hanna Kroeger created a homeopathic remedy to remove this dangerous toxin. Again, the issue is finding it and getting to it on time.

Asbestos is a dangerous and toxic chemical that can still be found in many places. Someone could simply doing a simple repair in the basement of their home and unknowingly set it airborne and voila, a few months later, mesothelioma!

Scary right? I found this list on a great website:

Common Home Building Products That May Contain Asbestos

Common products that might have contained asbestos in the past, and conditions which may release fibers, include:

  • STEAM PIPES, BOILERS, and FURNACE DUCTS insulated with an asbestos blanket or asbestos paper tape. These materials may release asbestos fibers if damaged, repaired, or removed improperly.
  • RESILIENT FLOOR TILES (vinyl asbestos, asphalt, and rubber), the backing on VINYL SHEET FLOORING, and ADHESIVES used for installing floor tile. Sanding tiles can release fibers. So may scraping or sanding the backing of sheet flooring during removal.
  • CEMENT SHEET, MILLBOARD, and PAPER used as insulation around furnaces and woodburning stoves. Repairing or removing appliances may release asbestos fibers. So may cutting, tearing, sanding, drilling, or sawing insulation.
  • DOOR GASKETS in furnaces, wood stoves, and coal stoves. Worn seals can release asbestos fibers during use.
  • SOUNDPROOFING OR DECORATIVE MATERIAL sprayed on walls and ceilings. Loose, crumbly, or water-damaged material may release fibers. So will sanding, drilling, or scraping the material.
  • PATCHING AND JOINT COMPOUNDS for walls and ceilings, and TEXTURED PAINTS. Sanding, scraping, or drilling these surfaces may release asbestos.
  • ASBESTOS CEMENT ROOFING, SHINGLES, and SIDING. These products are not likely to release asbestos fibers unless sawed, dilled, or cut.
  • ARTIFICIAL ASHES AND EMBERS sold for use in gas-fired fireplaces. Also, other older household products such as FIREPROOF GLOVES, STOVE-TOP PADS, IRONING BOARD COVERS, and certain HAIRDRYERS.
  • AUTOMOBILE BRAKE PADS AND LININGS, CLUTCH FACINGS, and GASKETS.

Where to Look for Asbestos Hazards in the Home

  • Some roofing and siding shingles are made of asbestos cement.
  • Houses built between 1930 and 1950 may have asbestos as insulation.
  • Asbestos may be present in textured paint and in patching compounds used on wall and ceiling joints. Their use was banned in 1977.
  • Artificial ashes and embers sold for use in gas-fired fireplaces may contain asbestos.
  • Older products such as stove-top pads may have some asbestos compounds.
  • Walls and floors around wood burning stoves may be protected with asbestos paper, mill board, or cement sheets.
  • Asbestos is found in some vinyl floor tiles and the backing on vinyl sheet flooring and adhesives.
  • Hot water and steam pipes in older houses may be coated with an asbestos material or covered with an asbestos blanket or tape.
  • Oil and coal furnaces and door gaskets may have asbestos insulation.

From another perspective…

In the West we tend to think of illness as being only in the body. If we look at illness holistically and metaphysically, when an illness manifests itself in the physical body, we are actually seeing a dysfunction in the Mind and Spirit. The energetic bodies of Mind and Emotions can manifest in the body.

The concept that we create our own reality is more widespread than ever before. In our parent’s generation and before, this concept was known only to a few. Those few were mainly mystics and shamans. Now discoveries and experiments in quantum physics prove the truth of this concept. Mystics, shamans and some quantum physicists know that we create our reality by our thoughts, beliefs and perceptions.

We are actually more powerful than we can even imagine. For most of us, though, our experience tells us something entirely different. We feel that we are at the mercy of an outward reality, the victims of circumstances beyond our control. We work harder and harder, thinking that if only we have more money, more time, the right pill, the right family, more love, or a better job that we will finally be whole and happy. We try to change and control the circumstances and people around us in order to feel empowered.

Louise Hay is known as one of the founders of the self-help movement. She was able to put her personal philosophies into practice when she was diagnosed with cancer. She considered the alternatives to surgery and drugs, and instead developed an intensive program of affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing, and psychotherapy. Within six months, she was completely healed of cancer.

She has since written several books, her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body.

Louise explains how our beliefs and ideas about ourselves are often the cause of our emotional problems and physical maladies and how, by using certain tools, we can change our thinking and our lives for the better.

Louise Hay’s list of the common illnesses and diseases and suggests the possible metaphysical cause.

Cancer:  Deep hurt. Longstanding resentment. Deep secret or grief eating away at the self. Carrying hatreds.

Lung: The ability to take in life. Depression. Grief. Not feeling worthy of living life fully.

In closing I would like to encourage you all to participate in Lung Leavin’ Day which will be celebrated for the entire month of February.

Blessings of much Health, Vitality and Love,

Rev. Carol Lefevre  B. Msc.
