“I want God to do it all for me!”

“I want miracles without the work!”

I get letters.

Some of those letters are people thanking me for what they learned in my courses. Some of those letters are people asking questions on what to study.

Some people want something for nothing.

There’s no such thing as something for nothing.

I had someone ask me for answers on how to get a result, but they don’t want to DO anything to get that result.

“They want God to zap them and give it to them.”

Sorry, Buckwheat. It don’t work that way.

There is no “magic button,” there is no “magic pill.”

The good news is there are simple steps you can take to gain mental abilities that most people think are “supernatural.”

They’re not really supernatural; they’re just how the universe works.

There was a military commander in the Old Testament who had leprosy, a nasty, contagious, and DEADLY disease – and there was no cure for it back then.

He heard of a prophet who could help him.

So he want to the prophet and said “Help me, and I’ll give you anything you want!”

The prophet gave him a simple step-by-step process.

The guy was offended.

He didn’t want a simple process.

He wanted something “spectacular”.

He stomped off in a rage.

His servant had the good sense to point out to him “If the prophet told you to do something difficult or to spend all your money, you would have done it. This is something simple, why not at least try it and see if it works!”

So the commander went and did the steps, and he was healed.

Well, there are simple steps to gaining more of your natural abilities you were created with.

People want to believe something spectacular – like if God zaps them, or if they get struck by lightning three times in the same spot or if they’re somehow “gifted” that they’ll be able to access these abilities.

The simple truth is you and I have access to abilities we have not yet begun to tap into. We were created by God with the potentials to access abilities most folks think are “miracles.”

They are not “supernatural.”

You do got to do the simple drills to get the skills.

No one else can do it for you.

Matthew 13:12

Matthew 13:12 “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”

I found something interesting I wrote almost 19 years ago. I’ll edit it down to what’s “relevant” to this post. I wrote it in November of 2001 in reply to a post Doc (Dr. John M. LaTourrette) did.

“The ocean never gripes because some of the water evaporates into the sky.”

“It always comes back. And the rains of blessing always pour down, where there is plenty, but almost never on the desert.” [Edited for this post.]

End Of Quote From Post.

This reminds me of “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”

Even then, though, there is STILL “water in the desert” for the person who knows how to FIND it – and do you know what is so interesting about that?

…In the desert places where they have found a way to get water from the air and plant a garden, and take careful care of that garden for just a couple of years where they are very mindful of what they do and how they do it…

The plants start to take better root.

The area where the garden is planted gets its own “micro-climate.”

And…

The garden starts to grow and thrive almost “on it’s own.”

What have you chosen to do with your garden? Do you let it grow by default? Or do you cultivate it “on purpose?”

Secrets Of Telepathic Repulsion And Attraction

Most people think of telepathic communication as the sending of telepathic commands or instructions to another person.

There are times when this happens, and there are ways to train it. (I have a course in my archives on “Silent Mental Commands.” If you don’t yet have it and would like it, write to me. It’s not currently on the website for the general public.)

There’s something that most people are not aware of concerning telepathic communication and telepathic repulsion and attraction – something I have been reminded of lately.

There is something interesting that Robert Fludd noticed, and Ingo Swann found and mentioned in his excellent book “Psychic Sexuality,” which is not a “sex book,” but rather a book about the effects and awareness of those sexualizing energies that energize us and give us life.

The really neat thing Robert Fludd noticed was that when two people come in contact with each other, if the energies between them were distorted or messed up, “negative” magnetism took place.

But if the energy radiating from the one passed freely into the other person, the result was “positive” magnetism.

In other words, telepathic energies of REPULSION or ATTRACTION.

(Swann, Ingo. Psychic Sexuality. E-book. Crossroad Press. 2014.)

The IMPLICATIONS of this, while they “should be obvious,” are not obvious to most people.

I remember being in college and hanging out with some really good friends.

We ate garbage – french fries, fried shrimp, fried foods, lots of “garbage food” that we made in the dorm. (Even though we weren’t “supposed to.”)

One of those friends got terrible gas from what he ate.

We would be hanging out, and all of a sudden, he would let out the most TOXIC fart.

It (usually) wasn’t directed at any of us on purpose.

But it drove us all out of the room!

It was almost unbearable!

Energies of thought and emotion work sort of like that.

And the stench lingers in the air.

So when you have a grudge against a person or a misunderstanding and choose to hang on to it, the energies between the two of you get distorted and energies of “repulsion” TELEPATHICALLY take place – completely and entirely with a life of their own, REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU WANTED TO HAVE HAPPEN INSTEAD!

And…

If you are carrying around a grudge against someone else, even those energies radiate outward from you, and those same energies affect all others in proximity with you AND THOSE YOU THINK ABOUT WHILE HOLDING ON TO THOSE GRUDGES!

Most people try to put a relgious-moral spin on the words of Jesus regarding the thoughts of the heart and the mind.

There’s something much deeper here than any religious group’s “list of do’s and don’ts.”

We are responsible – to ourselves AND to others – for the “mental and emotional diet” we feed ourselves.

Because it affects us AND everyone who comes in proximity to us.

It affects those we are connected with when we think about them.

Even at a distance….

Those energies we have chosen – either by default or on purpose – tend to take on a life of their own!

Now does that mean I am responsible for the thoughts and emotions going on inside your mind?

Are you responsible for the thoughts and emotions going on inside of my mind?

NO!

It does mean, however, we are responsible for self and how we relate to others.

I am responsible for me.

You are responsible for you.

Sometimes we attract the wrong people.

Sometimes we attract the right people but then repel them.

Sometimes they repel us.

Sometimes we attract what we want but can’t seem to do it on purpose.

The easy answer is to “blame” someone – either self or the other person – or both!

Yet choosing to take RESPONSIBILITY for self has absolutely nothing to do with “blaming,” and has everything to do with making intelligent choices and action regarding thoughts, how we feel (our emotions), and how we relate to others.

And…

“If you don’t like what you have been drawing to you, YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!”

Questions? Comments?

Let me know.

Is a relationship psychic reading any good?

Is a relationship psychic reading any good?

There are many, many ways you can benefit from psychic awareness.

There are also many pitfalls people fall in to.

In this article I’m going to focus specifically on benefits and pitfalls of relationship psychic readings. These points will also apply to other applications too though.

We all have the ability through the heart and mind to do our own readings and to have our own knowings.

So why does it seem difficult to do sometimes? Why does it seem difficult to get answers sometimes?

I know someone who currently has cataracts. It clouds their vision. They cannot read or see as well as they used to.

Our own thoughts, emotions, doubts, fears, insecurities, grudges, gripes, disappointments, hopes – all these and more – provide a “filter” that we see through.

It’s like in the Bible where it says “for now we see as through a glass darkly.”

Most folks are not aware of their own “clouded vision.”

I have been reminded of this before also in attempting to get answers regarding someone for the purpose of “making things right” with them.

Answers that often would have been easy to get seemed distant and far away.

Most folks do not know they are the ones who are responsible for their own filters, their own thoughts, their own emotions.

It may be true that the other person has hurt, offended, let us down, or done us wrong in some way or other. They are responsible for their own self. I am responsible for me. You are responsible for you.

One of the greatest mistakes people make is trying to get someone else to “do it for them.”

They want to go to a psychic and get help with their relationships.

Edgar Cayce was very, very good.

He always gave advice on improving one’s own attitude, thoughts, and emotions, along with understanding of how those affect the current situation and how the improvement of those same forces lead to positive change.

Most people doing readings are good at “cold reading.” They simply take your money.

Notice that Edgar Cayce accepted donations, but he did not charge a fee for his readings.

Most people are really not good enough to give you that kind of advice.

There are some, however, who are excellent enough at what they do that they can train you how to access those answers for yourself.

Most of the people who do believe in psychic abilities are far too quick to abdicate the throne of responsibility. Instead of devloping their inner self, their thoughts, their attitudes, their words, their actions, they want to be “at effect” of the things that happen to them – including the person they want a relationship with or the person they want to give them answers.

Even when someone else has “done us wrong,” there is a huge difference between blaming and self-responsibility.

Please note that self-responsibility is not the same as blaming of self.

So is there a way to benefit from doing our own relationship psychic reading?

Yes.

However, there are some things we must do in order to be accurate:

1.) Be willing to let go of gripes, complaints, grudges, feelings of abandonment, fears, insecurities, doubts.

2.) Be willing to step back from the situation and examine it intelligently.

Sometimes the answer is “walk away.”

Sometimes the answer is “keep working at it.”

Sometimes the answer is “you need to work on self in order to attract that other person back in to your life.”

I know personally I have fallen in to two different “mind-traps,” and I know others who have done the same.

The first mind-trap is to…

1.) Blaming of self for the entire screwup. “It’s all my fault.” It could be true. That’s usually not the case, though.

2.) Blaming of the other person for the entire screwup. “It’s all their fault!” This falls under the category of a “victim mentality” and “Poor Little Ole Me!”

Sometimes we might have found ourselves in relationships where the other person truly is rotten to the core.

And they might be responsible for much garbage they have done to us.

However, keep in mind that in order for there to be a relationship, there has to, by definition, be at least 2 individuals there in relationship to each other.

So instead of griping, blaming, pointing the finger, a better question is “Now that I know what I do not want, what can I do – that I have control of and responsibility for – to attract the type of relationship I do desire.”

Whatever your case might be, another common mistake many make is the need to have a relationship work with a specific person.

If they want to go, let them go.

Is it sometimes hard to do?

Yes.

There is another side of this.

When our heart is not clogged by mental and emotional “cataracts,” our heart can see clearly to guide us.

Sometimes making changes in self is all that is needed to attract the other person.

Sometimes making those changes in self awakens us to the reality that we can do – and deserve – much, much better than what we had previously settled for.

One thing you do want to beware of is anyone offering a relationship psychic reading or offering to do “love spells” FOR you.

You and only you are responsible for learning how to attract in to your life the type of relationship you desire.

It can be difficult to learn to control one’s own thoughts, emotions, words, and actions when not used to doing so.

However, when we learn to do so, to direct the mind and the heart in an intelligent manner, we can open up new possibilities we previously were not able to access successfully.

Remember “Mind control begins with you.”

Perhaps I will come back to this topic again in a future post. Write to me if you have questions about this topic. Please note: I do not do psychic relationship readings for others.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post.

Can prayer be a bad thing?

“I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” Isaiah 45:5-7

I am studying some very interesting research on prayer.

You have most likely heard the saying “Be careful what you pray for!” (I could give some humorous examples that illustrate this.)

Many of the people I know claim it is not possible to accidentally (much less on purpose!) harm someone with prayers.

Yet the Bible does not say this. (In fact, the Bible is full of examples of people “cursing in the name of the Lord.”)

Consider the rather obvious fact that in order to pray for a person to heal, the disease itself must be cursed.

Looking down on someone else while “praying for them,” is a curse.

Many people accidentally CURSE others with their prayers by reinforcing the unwanted condition – with mental pictures and with feelings of doubt, fear, and dread.

(“Don’t die! God, don’t let them DIE!” Or they completely misunderstand and misuse the saying of Jesus “Thy will be done,” so they pray “God, if IT’S not AGAINST YOUR WILL…” and they pollute their prayer with the doubt as to whether or not the thing they pray for will be able to happen. Or rather they pollute their prayers with the certainty that it will NOT happen. And they think they are being “spiritual” by doing so. Notice that the people flocked to Jesus because instead of speaking with doubt and uncertainty, He spoke with AUTHORITY, and not like the “teachers of the Law.”)

Many people who are praying for a spouse or loved one pollute their prayers with fears and mental images of the person leaving them. They do not know that the “groans that words cannot express” combined with the sloppy mental images are a powerful prayer for “what they DON’T want to have happen.”

Many well-meaning people accidentally pray for their loved ones to get sicker and sicker instead of better and better.

But you might say “God could never fulfill that type of prayer! God knows what I mean…”

Sorry, but the research on prayer suggests otherwise. Those same people are completely unaware as to what they themselves actually mean with their thoughts – they do not understand that their doubts and fears are powerful thoughts.

The research on prayer suggests that these negative prayers DO have a negative effect on those we are close to.

So does the Bible.

This is why Jesus put much emphasis on what you think in your heart and mind, not just “what you say out loud.”

And it is not just “what you think,” but also HOW you think it – how you represent those thoughts in your mind, how you speak to yourself and others, and “what you choose to do as a result.”

So Great A Cloud Of Witnesses

Hebrews 12:1 in the NIV (New International Version) says “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

Now a lot of folks have ideas about that word “sin” and before I get to the “secret hidden in plain sight” here, let’s go over that word “sin.”

“Sin,” in the Bible, is “to miss the mark.”

Something that hinders is a sin. Something that holds you back is a sin. Something that keeps you from doing the good you know you ought to do is sin. Something that gets in your way, yet you choose it anyway, that is a sin.

If you want to run a race, but you sit on your butt drinking beer all the time, or eating potato chips or whatever stops you from running the race – that is “sin.”

The good news about that is you can always choose to do something better instead.

The context the writer of Hebrews gives is in the context of the ideal of being like Jesus.

Just a quick word here. Lots of people will try to shame you in the name of religious beliefs. They will tell you to “be like Jesus,” yet they themselves cannot do ANYTHING that Jesus did – some of them do not even know how to forgive.

The question here is not “what do other people think of me?” Or “Do other people approve?”

The question is “What is my Ideal, and am I pursuing that?”

Onward

I mentioned a “secret hidden in plain sight.”

I have loved reading Hebrews – especially Hebrews 11 for many years, and yet I did not notice what was “hidden in plain sight.”

I saw it, I thought I understood it, but I didn’t really.

The writer talks about the great Bible “heroes of the faith” and how they kept on their path of faith and held to their values and ideals (even those who fell flat on their faces at times), and even in the face of great difficulty.

And he calls up “witness after witness after witness.”

Stick with me for a moment here, while I mention what “some folks do.”

Back over 100 years ago, during the Spiritualist Movement, people were doing seances and things like that to try to contact the dead – it is actually nothing new. It just was kind of “popular” back then.

You might have seen ads for “psychic mediums” who promise to do something along those lines.

Those people temporarily volunteer to be “inhabited” by an outside entity for the purpose of gaining information.

What the writer of Hebrews is talking about is something completely different.

Those who study this from a different point of view would call it “Overshadowing.”

Or perhaps you’re familiar with the idea of a “Mastermind Group.”

When we focus on something – whether it is on purpose or by default – we attract attention on the other side.

Don’t believe that happens? Read Daniel – where the angel told him that the answer was delayed in getting to him because of spiritual warfare.

What the writer of Hebrews does here is to choose – on purpose – to focus on people with specific character traits – perseverance, running the race to the end – even in times of difficulty – and sets up their story of endurance and holding on to what they truly value.

Well when you surround yourself with the CHOICE – and yes, it IS A CHOICE – to focus on things that you value, it draws to you assistance, it draws to you encouragement, it draws to you perseverance, it draws to you COURAGE to do the thing you know you ought to do.

Most folks choose by default.

They sit in front of the tv and soak it in. Or whatever they surf on the web.

You can choose on purpose to fill your mind with those things that help you get to where it is you want to go – your goals, your hopes, your dreams, your ideals!

One of my best friends – Dr. La Tourrette – told me a long time ago that most people’s hopes and dreams are dead by the time they are between the ages of 25-35.

It does not have to be that way.

You can choose!

Go read Hebrews 11-12, and notice how the writer there shows you how to choose in ways that help you keep on keeping on.

Have fun!

Talk with you again soon!

Does natural ability mean squat?

Does “natural ability” mean squat?

Well you have to have at least some ability or capacity to learn a skill.

And DESIRE to learn it is absolutely crucial.

This is a copy of a whiteboard I did for a video I recorded for my clients.

Ingo Swann talked about human power potentials as being difficult to see BECAUSE most people do not even know how to begin to cultivate their potentials.

More about that in another post sometime if there’s enough interest in “human energies.”

We see here in this illustration that Joe and Fred appear to have more ability than Sue, because that “mark” just above Sue’s name is the ability she is currently demonstrating.

Yet what is “unseen” are Sue’s POTENTIALS – if she trains, and “she could be better than the best” with proper training.

And here thought is a “PSYCHIC SKILL.”

Most people do not recognize that “choosing” part of the skills – they think you either have the ability or do not have the ability and that some people are either left or right brain dominant, and not much you can do about it.

But that’s just not true.

How you choose to think – and what you choose to think about – determine where you go in life.

You are not responsible for what someone else thinks of you or does. You are responsible for what you think and do.

Your own thoughts either curse you or bless you. (Others might, in fact, try to curse you with their disapproval or judgemental attitudes or by looking down on you – however you do have ways to “take care of it.”)

How do YOU personally know when you are doing good? How do you know personally when you are on the right track?

I was talking with a friend about this very topic.

I remember once upon a time people asked some questions I could figure out answers for, and I saw lots of dollar signs, so I gave them answers. I myself did not like those answers, even though it was a “fun topic.” I also did not appreciate myself very much for giving them those answers.

I remember asking a friend something years ago, and his reply to me was “you are on a much different path than they are.”

And he was right!

How do you KNOW when you are walking in the path that is right for you?

I do know some folks who claim God tells them – and please don’t get me wrong – I believe in God, and I believe God helps guide people (and ALSO expects people to learn to think for themselves!).

Awhile back I had a conversation with someone who told me “The Lord had laid something on his heart to talk to me about.”

I noticed the location where he was looking when he said that.

Then I noticed the location in his energy field where he looked when he went inside his own head and talked to himselfTHEY WERE BOTH THE SAME LOCATION!

He “thought God was talking to him,” but he was busy just talking to himself… (Easy to calibrate “when you know what to look for.”)

Anyway…

“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.”

Reverend Thomson Jay Hudson – in his book from the late 1800’s – The Law Of Psychic Phenomena – wrote that man’s (human’s) greatest intelligence occurs when he (or she) hooks up their whole mind for a specific purpose.

Of course there is much more “hidden in plain sight” on this diagram.

Implied but not stated is “What do you want?” and “Where do you want to go?”

Just a tiny drop in the bucket here.

If interested in more, ask questions or send me a private message.
