Preserving the Spiritual Self

hs-1995-44-b-webEven as we strive to better our human condition through science and technology, inside each of us is a largely untapped reservoir of wisdom that has been neglected, ignored or dismissed throughout modern history. Within each of us is a unique sentient being who is either allowing negativity to interfere with us, or who is waiting for us to wake up and start utilizing the higher level skills that could improve our wellbeing at a grand scale.

While we all begin our lives with inherent spiritual knowledge that could extend into adulthood, too many children face neglect, bullying and abuse that interferes with their happiness, health and spiritual strength. Few can grasp the extent to which a child’s life changes after they’ve suffered abuse, and the way in which these scars heal can determine how difficult one’s life will be. Moreover, the effects of abuse on children is more than psychological, reaching into the very essence of their being and, more often than not, resulting in a spiritual malaise that can further deteriorate their wellbeing on an ongoing basis.

When children bully other children, we becomeBalloons on the Ground outraged because their behaviour is unacceptable.  However, the behavior of adults who bully, accuse, criticize, threaten and abuse children with the excuse of protectiveness or discipline is not only inexcusable or unforgiveable, it also causes irreparable damage at the spiritual level. Once a child’s innocence has been shattered by the frightening experiences of abuse, it can either bring a lifetime of shame, guilt and low self-esteem, or it can trigger a self-preservation instinct that results in constant restructuring, adaptation and determination toward self-preservation. Once their trust in authority figures has been shattered, many survivors of childhood abuse find it very difficult to ask for help and they often become alienated while their spiritual strength weakens over time.

Through my many years as a spiritual problem solver, I’ve learned to identify and eliminate the negative elements extending from higher levels that linger and interfere with one’s wellbeing long after an abusive event that are not recognized or treated through other means.

From my own experience as a child who grew up in rather extreme poverty, I was subjected to various incidents of abuse, as a result of my vulnerability to and trust in the ‘pillars’ of my community. In elementary school, the fathers of some schoolmates made it clear to their wives in my presence that my impoverished appearance made me an unsuitable playmate for their children. (A great way to teach children social skills!) Not long afterward, I was sexually abused and threatened by the village parish priest. (Such a significant religious lesson!) Several years later, the high school counselor accused me of cheating on an IQ test, because he thought my grades did not match my high IQ score. (Definitely how to counsel and guide a child!) Although these other events in my life led to feelings of worthlessness and a state of confusion, I never ceased looking for solution until I found out how to work with my spirit.

BalloonsNasaIn order to protect ourselves at the spiritual level and to withstand the onslaught of negativity that many of us face on this planet, it takes effort and commitment to progress at the spiritual level. Even if spiritual ground has been lost, we are all equipped with a connection to our spiritual aspect that can be restituted from its idle state and put to use! While practicing to refuse and remove the elements of negative interference, we can develop a strong positive spiritual connection using the Light* that will continue to generate sustainable energy at all levels of our being.

As we properly preserve and nurture our spirits, we provide them with spiritual integrity and positive knowledge to help them progress on their timeless journeys.

Optimized Childhood

boyonskateboardWhen I think of how amazing childhood can be, I also reflect on the many children whose experience is less than what they deserve.  Children are the product of not only their genetic traits, but also their physical and spiritual environment and experiences.  When a child has a spiritual problem, the effects of spiritual negativity could ruin an otherwise wonderful childhood.

A few years ago Leo and I had the opportunity to help a young boy that lived in our neighborhood.  When we moved into our new home on a cul-de-sac, a couple of the neighbors came by to greet us and then, in turn, to warn us about ‘Danny’, the five-year-old boy next door.  According to the neighbors, Danny was notorious for hitting golf balls from his driveway in all directions.  They told us that he had struck their parked cars and even broken a picture window in one of the houses.  An older woman claimed that she was afraid to work in her garden whenever the boy was outside.  She exclaimed that: “He just ruins our neighborhood.”  It surprised me that everyone was complaining about such an innocuous little boy.

Later that day, Danny came around to meet us, accompanied by his mother and two brothers.  When his mother, a nurse, learned that we did spiritual healing, she immediately started to tell us how difficult it was to deal with Danny.  She said that she had taken him out of kindergarten, because there were already signs that he would have been prescribed Ritalin to control his ADD.  She wasn’t sure if he would be able to start the 1st grade in the same school system without succumbing to the drug requirement.  On that first meeting she asked if there was anything we could do to help her son.  Leo said that he would talk to him the next day, after we had finished moving our boxes inside.

The following day, Danny came by with his mother.  Leo asked Danny if he liked the spirit that he had.  Danny said that he didn’t like it, because it was always making him to do things that got him into trouble.  Leo asked him if he wanted to have a new spirit, one that would help him.  Danny broke out a huge smile and said that he would like that.  He looked at his mother for approval and she nodded to him that it was okay.  Leo removed a negatively-oriented spirit from Danny and brought him a positively-oriented one that was more suitable for his body.

Leo asked Danny how he felt and what kinds of things he liked to do.  The little boy said that he felt better and that he didn’t like chasing golf balls around, like his father had taught him to do.  He said that all he wanted to do was to learn to how to ride a skateboard like his older brother.  Danny looked at his mother again for approval, and she told him that he could use his brother’s old skateboard.  Danny said: “I don’t like that one.  I want to get a new one, but I can put those wheels on it.”

The following weekend, Danny was out on the driveway with his father and brother, putting the wheels from his brother’s old skateboard onto a new frame.  From then on, almost everyday we could see Danny out on his driveway, diligently concentrating on his technique and setting up jumps, such as his favorite one over his bicycle.  His tireless efforts paid off, and soon his technique coupled agility with precision as he glided gracefully over his bike every time.

Whenever we saw Danny playing outside, he kept asking us to come and watch him practice at the skate park down the road.   A few weeks later, when Leo and I finally stopped in to see how he was doing, the skate park attendant told us that Danny had organized the most difficult jump to give the younger kids a chance to use it.  Whenever Danny was there, the children stood patiently in line, awaiting their turn.  He was already showing leadership skills and had gained the respect and friendship of all the children at the park!

Not only had Danny become adept on his skateboard, but he began to believe in himself in other ways.  He was doing so well in school that he was selected to move ahead halfway through the first grade to make early entry into the second grade.  He had also begun to eat better and used to chide his brother for eating junk food.  And he stopped hitting golf balls at available targets.  Whenever I think of Danny, I see him working intently on his skateboard moves and grinning as he looks back triumphantly at each successful accomplishment.

The reason that I wanted to tell this particular story is because it exemplifies the plight of so many highly creative intelligent children whose problems are essentially spiritual.  When a bright intuitive child like Danny is beleaguered by the impact of a spirit that is ill-suited for his body, the resulting chemical imbalance can adversely affect his behavior.   However, when a suitable spirit can be properly matched with a child’s body, they work in harmony together.  Fortunately, Danny’s mother believed enough in her child and his spiritual well-being to allow her son to enjoy a positively-oriented spirit and reclaim his childhood.

Leo says: “Show me a mischievous child and I see a creative genius.”  Children always keep it simple and will readily respond to a positive spiritual experience.
