LOVE Today

This is one of my favorite Starlike© paper art sculptures by Leo Jean. It represents self-love, as shown by the 3 stars on the heart: my spirit, my higher self and my body. The square is covered on 5 sides by stacked paper stars of various colors, the dimensions of my being into which I extend my self-love.Of all the holidays celebrated during the year, my favorite is Valentine’s Day because it’s all about the expression of LOVE!

In my perspective, LOVE between two people is the result of being able to authentically share life’s experiences in an atmosphere of honesty, trust, understanding and patience, while openly expressing mutual respect, affection and appreciation.

Love is not obligatory or bounded within a cage – true LOVE is happiness with wings!

People fall in and out of love, so it’s good to remember that sex is not love…but it’s so incredible when you have it with the one you LOVE!

Once you achieve the state of self-love you’ll find it so much easier to find LOVE, because you’ve already acquired the essential qualities that you’ll need to truly and unconditionally love someone else."Glowing Hearts" by Leo Jean (aka Leo's Logo)

I hope you’re sharing lots of positive LOVE energy today with the one you LOVE!

LOVE & Your Spirit

"Glowing Hearts" by Leo Jean (aka Leo's Logo)Even though Valentine’s Day might seem a rather trivial holiday, I really enjoy seeing the symbol of LOVE everywhere!

All the love we experience in our lives appears to be rooted first in our family, then our friends, eventually in a partner/spouse and, finally, in our children. It’s so natural and heartwarming to feel the positive emotions associated with love! Love is attainable by all, and each of us should have the opportunity to experience love in our lives.

Through my work I’ve observed many times that, when a child begins to love him/her self, they begin to start caring about how another child loves him/herself. This domino effect involving self-love impacts children, not only physically, mentally and emotionally but, most importantly, spiritually.

This is one of my favorite Starlike© paper art sculptures by Leo Jean. It represents self-love, as shown by the 3 stars on the heart: my spirit, my higher self and my body. The square is covered on 5 sides by stacked paper stars of various colors, the dimensions of my being into which I extend my self-love.

Once someone acknowledges self-love, they are then able to truly extend love to another person and to accept love back. Not only is it mutually beneficial at the physical level, it’s the knowing and acceptance of the self that increases our physical positivity, presenting our individual spirits with the platform from which to progress toward a positive state.

When someone experiences self-love, this positive state of being allows them to prepare their body for spiritual progress and to become more aware of others’ spiritual status. In turn, this awareness brings a greater understanding of the spiritual state of people close to us and, in the greater picture, of the impact of our spiritual progress as a whole.

fbheartstarlike1Hopefully, the spiritual aspect of our world can evolve dynamically from its incorrigible negativity into a fundamentally positive state. Perhaps, if love for oneself were more important, people could start caring for themselves, for each other, and for our planet.

Valentine’s Day is a great time to reflect upon those we love and the essential energy that love generates for us – and our timeless spirits ­– as we move through this existence together.

Spiritual Harmony

StrikingSky 12.6.15We all seek spirituality in our own way, but some of us need a more self-propelled approach to our spiritual needs than what is pursued by the vast majority. The attainment of spiritual harmony can be established by coupling a genuine desire with a firm commitment that brings about a determined effort to progress with one’s spirit.

Although neuroscientists have concluded that our sense of spiritual yearning has either evolved over time or is hardwired into our brains, there appears to be little knowledge about how to independently promote our own spiritual progress. In childhood our innate sense of spirituality is strong, but it doesn’t take long for many of us to abandon connecting with our spiritual selves, since we recognize so little gratification in the process. As it remains our own choice about how to direct our individual journey through this life, we have to want to pursue a course of action that will give us a sense of achievement for our work at the spiritual level.

Similar to how we crave food and drink to sustain ourselves, we also crave a sense of spiritual nourishment that is either handed to us at the corner institution, or is earned through a conscious commitment to interact with our spiritual selves. Although it might be assumed that you first have to gain a healthy balance at the physical level in order to be in harmony with your spirit, once you start to conscientiously work with your spirit by following positive principles, you will naturally find balance at all levels. You might be surprised to find how easily you can adopt a healthy secure lifestyle and generally take care of yourself better, when you actually feel attuned to your spirit.

A positively oriented spirit requires a firm commitment with its physical body in order for it to be able to exist in a harmonious relationship. A spirit is not affected by time, emotion or the elements of the physical world, but it can be affected by the negative or positive energies that you accept or reject at all levels. A positively oriented spirit will work in unison with its body, when there is mutually positive interaction. Your main task is to genuinely assume the responsibility of doing the hard work of removing the elements of negativity that inhibit your spirit from existing in a positive state.

StrikingUniverse

Bringing a positive perspective into all aspects of your life is an incremental process through which the benefits fall into place as you build on a sound foundation. No one can eliminate all negativity from this life – it’s all around us on our planet – but we can reduce its impact through counteraction and positive replacement. Working against negativity is a challenge that, when met with the strength of commitment to work with a positively oriented spirit, results in a positive stance in your life.

You can feel at peace anywhere anytime, when you know your spirit is progressing, because your efforts to remove the negative elements from your life elevate both you and your spirit to a positive state. When you reach a state of harmony with your spirit, you feel a sense of calm, even when you’re in the middle of traffic, dealing with finances, working out a relationship or dealing with troubling events in your life – somewhat like the feeling you get when you’re out in nature: walking through a forest, sailing atop the ocean waves or looking up at the stars at night.

Being in harmony with your spirit means that you feel a keen sense of serenity and contentment all the time. When your spirit is intimately connected with the purely positive energy of the  universe/multiverse, it brings a sense of timeless majesty into your being. You naturally become more aware of the importance of being in balance with your spirit, as you work alongside it to bring spiritual progress and harmony into your existence.

Spiritual Strength | The Benefits

Planetary Nebula NGC 2818, Hubble Space TelescopeThe recent discovery of the fossilized remains of Homo naledi in a South African cave suggests that our primitive ancestors displayed burial practices long before previously thought. Rather than having developed this behavior over millennia, are we innately spiritual beings who have always contemplated our timeless spiritual journey beyond this finite physical existence?

We could even speculate that our spirits had lives before ours, perhaps somewhere else in the grand cosmos, and that they were once powerfully and positively attuned within their former bodies. Were that true, then what’s happened to our spirit-body relationship? Why don’t we let go of the negativity we drag around and allow our spirits to work in healthful unison within us? And what should we do with our spiritual strength, after we’ve put so much effort into helping our spirits increase their positive knowledge and power?

It’s my belief that our lives are inspired by higher-level guidance from our spiritual selves. If our spirits are positive when we come into this world, but we’re ignorant or closed to their direction, then our consciousness would become clouded with the input that we do allow to infiltrate our minds. If we become cut off from positively-oriented inspiration, then our mental and emotional impressions could become inundated with negativity that interferes with our wellbeing at all levels.

From my own perspective as someone who had extricated myself from the complacency of religious conditioning at a very young age, my spiritual weakness only became apparent after I hit rock bottom. From a very promising childhood with a positively oriented spirit I had descended from being a straight A student in elementary school to becoming a victim of domestic violence. Childhood abuse had caused a downslide in my spiritual strength that continued into adulthood, until I reached a state that threatened my health and safety.

Sunlight in Cave

I had continued to allow people to take advantage of my good nature, abuse and otherwise mistreatme, until one day I read an article in Psychology Today (c. 1985) in which the author noted that rape victims who were not treated soon after their abuse event would continue to suffer worsening symptoms over time. Over a matter of hours that thought led me through heightening anxiety to a profound realization when I said to myself: “I’m going to fight!”

I believe it was at that moment that I gave my spirit the go ahead to start helping me. Instead of just accepting all the negativity that was being hammered upon me, I was suddenly inspired to make my escape from a severely abusive relationship. Until then I had not taken any action to defend myself against the onslaught of negativity that had been weakening me, not just mentally, emotionally and physically, but especially, spiritually. Thankfully, soon after the abrupt turn in my determination, I found my mentor (and later, partner) who presented me with the means by which I was able to climb out of the depths of my sorry situation.

From my starting point 30 years ago, my consistent attention to my spirit as an essential part of me continues to yield significant improvements in my overall wellbeing. As a result of learning how to properly use the positive energy of pure white universal Light*, my spiritual strength has continued to build, and I’ve been able share positive higher-level knowledge with my clients around the world.

Some of the benefits of a dynamic positive spirit-body relationship include:

  1. Loving and accepting yourself completely for who you are
  2. Developing calmness and patience while increasing your focus, concentration and endurance
  3. Working with your higher self (the liaison with your spirit) to assist you with better decision-making and implementation of positive change
  4. Motivating and improving your creative expression
  5. Heightening your awareness to identify negative interference
  6. Using your spiritual sensitivity to deal with inter-dimensional influences
  7. Facilitating the adoption of positive habits, activities and relationships as you learn to counteract the obstacles
  8. Increasing your overall energy and enthusiasm
  9. Using the positive energy of the Light to bring balance and improve your health at all levels
  10. Emanating inner happiness into your present and future life experience

Sunshine thru RocksAt the end of the day, there’s only you and your spirit. So, why not acknowledge your spiritual self as an integral part of your present being? When you come to a point in your life when your understanding of your physical existence relative to your spirit’s timeless nature becomes important, you might want to begin working within with your spirit.

The remarkable results of gaining positive spiritual strength will enhance your wellbeing at all levels and promote your spiritual progress.

Sexual Abuse is Spiritually Devastating

calmbeachwpThe recent revelations by the dozens of women about having been drugged and sexually assaulted at the hands of the so-called ‘iconic family man’, Bill Cosby, brings to mind the plight of the thousands of children around the world who have been sexually assaulted by Roman Catholic priests. Because of my own experience at the hands of a middle-aged priest when I was a child, this ongoing saga of sexual exploitation of women rings especially loud and clear.

For the now dozens of women who have accused Mr. Cosby of these abhorrent acts, there has since been no peace in their lives. They all relate how they had lived with the pain of their experience, due to the way they had been lured into the sole company of the perpetrator then drugged into unconsciousness, so that he could have his way with them. However, they were either afraid to tell anyone because they were afraid no one would believe them or, as many of them have stated, even their friends, family or bosses never believed them when they did speak up because their stories seemed so incredible.  We should all be outraged at the behavior of this sexual predator and collectively defrock Mr. Cosby of his celebrity status as these women seek legal recourse after the Statute of Limitation has passed for a criminal proceeding.

When I listen to all of these women’s stories about being drugged and raped by a prominent celebrity, their intense emotions of anger and betrayal bring back the terror of my own experience when I was only 10 years old. I had been ‘drugged’ into the belief system of the RC church and then lured into a situation where I was alone with a 40ish revered man. I was raped by an angry priest for making prank phone calls in the church basement while I was teaching catechism (tenets of the faith) to younger children who were attending the village public school.

Just as most of those women had had aspirations of furthering their acting careers in trusting Mr. Cosby, innocent young children like me have been placed in the hands of sexual perverts in the hopes of gaining spiritual favor through the RC church. We thought it was a privilege to be asked by such prominent people in our lives to spend time with them. We were sadly mistaken.

Stormy Sky

Even though it’s difficult to listen those adult victims talk about their nightmarish lives after their sexual assaults, children have much more difficulty dealing with the aftermath of such a breach of trust. From my own experience, I know how difficult it has been to overcome the enormous emotional pain and suffering. I understand their helplessness in not being believed, yet I had been threatened with the destruction of my entire family if I dared tell anyone what the priest had done to me. That was a massive responsibility, so I kept the event a secret until I couldn’t handle it anymore.

Thanks to the actions of the judge that unsealed Mr. Cosby’s 2005 deposition, I sincerely hope that the information now coming forward will vindicate these women and lead to some much needed healing, as their stories become believable in the court of public opinion. Rather than simply dismiss their stories, we all need to listen to women and children when they claim they’ve been sexually abused, because the vast majority of us don’t make up such sorrowful stories on a whim or to gain attention.

Relaxing SunsetLike these women I was a strong enough person to persevere through a hellish 20 years after the rape, but I was also a very spiritual person who had seen through the façade of religion and kept searching for an approach to spirituality that wasn’t tied to any organization or institution. It was only when I met my mentor that I was able to once again connect with my spiritual self and regain my dignity.

If you’re an abuse survivor, and the Statute of Limitation in your location has already passed, in order to start healing at all levels, you can:

  1. Forgive yourself. You’ve done nothing wrong. Don’t feel like you ever have to forgive the despicable brute that abused you.
  1. Love yourself. Start accepting yourself for who you are. Recognize and nurture your inner beauty.
  1. Practice calmness. Unchecked anxiety is detrimental to your physical health. Relax through regular exercise and quiet time in nature.
  1. Start self-healing by looking after yourself. Eat healthy and get proper sleep. Refrain from self-medicating through the use of drugs and alcohol. Find someone and/or a professional you trust to talk to about the abuse and allow their counsel as constructive, rather than critical.
  1. Start working with your spirit by actively bringing in the pure white Light* and using it to remove the negativity you feel mentally, emotionally and physically. Do your best to refuse the spiritual negativity that has accumulated from all the ongoing negativity you’ve experienced. I specialize in removing latent spiritual negativity and can help in this area.

Sexual abuse offends us at the highest level of our being and can potentially fracture our spiritual connection irreparably. Apart from the mental, emotional and social healing process, there is still a lot of spiritual work to do to emerge from the nightmare.

Sensational 60

60andSensationalComparatively speaking, our lives are but a blink in what can be referred to as ‘time’ in the universe. Although we are subjected to the concept of time in our daily lives, our spiritual aspect is timeless and infinite.

We all enter this world within the innocence of childhood, when our lives lie open before us, spread out like a blanket into the patterns that comprise our individuality. As we extend the boundaries of our experiences outward, we’re subjected to the many events that mould and shape our lives. As we widen, stretch and expand our horizons, we discover our role as the designers of our construct here in these bodies, on this planet, in this time. Not only are we what we eat, feel and think, our precious lives are an extension of our spiritual being.

Now that I have reached another milestone in my existence, I can separate my life into three parts. During the first third of my life I was trying to figure out how to stop the tailspin I found myself in, while the second third was spent learning about and teaching others to benefit from the exhilarating spiritual knowledge I had discovered. I aim to use the next third of my life in furthering my commitment to progress with my spirit and in helping others to gain the wisdom of the positive spiritual principles and energy of the pure white Light.

My life has been fueled by constant change and I will continue to gain momentum as I work with my spirit long into the future. When I turned 30, I felt like I was 60 – now as I turn 60, I feel like I’m 30!

Thanks to my incredibly energetic and timeless spirit…I’m sensational at 60!!!

Here’s how I’ve looked along the way…

Inner Essentials

Spiral Galaxy NGC 7742 Even as astronomers scour the galaxy for signs of extraterrestrial life in the billions of locations that are potentially suited to sustain complex organisms, there are so many questions about our existence that need to be explored and discovered at the higher levels of our being. Instead, we are still fighting the endless conflicts of religion and politics that continue to divide and create greater disparity between us. In the micro-cosmos that begins here within each and every one of us, there is still great progress to be made toward reaching a harmonious balance that includes all aspects of our existence.

As young children, when our emotional, physical and spiritual worlds were still melded in wholesomeness, our inner happiness and peace could shine through in youthful energy. However, for many of us there were rips or tears in our emotional world as a result of abuse that permeated our spiritual wellbeing. Just as a black hole rips through the fabric of the universe absorbing matter at an astonishing rate, an abusive event can rip through the structure of a child’s spiritual self, visibly eating away at their overall health.

Niagara Whirlpool Rapids

Each time a child is bullied or abused, the experience  weakens the framework thatbinds his/her spiritual self to their emotional and physical selves. Ongoing abusive experiences can further rip a child’s spiritual self from them, leading to mental and physical distress that can end in addiction, lasting depression or crumbling physical health. However, similar to how closer investigation of black holes in the universe can potentially answer age old questions about our very existence in the cosmos, peering into the spiritual void initiated during a traumatic event can bring understanding of oneself and allow the spark of inner harmony to begin.

The other day I was watching a documentary about the Greek islands1 and I found the description of the island of Kos especially interesting. In one location on the island, the ancient Greeks divided the focus of their healing process into three parts: the physical body, the soul or emotional body and the spiritual body, and provided different venues for healing each aspect. The Greek guide made it clear that the ancients’ meaning of the ‘soul’ was not the same as their meaning of the ‘spirit’. While the basic balances of a natural healing process have become increasingly complicated by scientific treatment, the ancient Greeks seemed to understand the need for an integrated approach to wellness.

As adults we’re still children within, striving to bring balance to our ongoing physical, mental and emotional experiences. It can be quite a juggling act to keep everything going with the right rhythm and timing, as we keep compensating for all the hurts, guilt, fear and other negative emotional waves that have caused imbalance within us. In addition to filling the spiritual gap with the positive energies of self-love, self-forgiveness and daily effort toward a brighter future, we have to get rid of the negative spiritual influences that obstruct overall health.

Tranquil PathA healthy spiritual self is paramount to all aspects of our wellbeing and our choices in how we approach our spirituality can make a difference. There appear to be spiritual extroverts who like to express their spiritual beliefs in the company of others and spiritual introverts who prefer to experience spirituality in solitude. While spiritual dependence on others can interfere with our spirits’ needs, our time alone is most likely the best test for overall balance, because our thoughts, emotions and energy are our own. In the absence of inner harmony, our individual spirits can be adversely affected by the influence of the cumulative negativity that can curtail the body’s ability to self heal.

When you work in harmony with your spirit, you’ll naturally be more mindful and capable of promoting wellness at all levels of your being.

Loving Life

This is one of my favorite Starlike© paper art sculptures by Leo Jean. It represents self-love, as shown by the 3 stars on the heart: my spirit, my higher self and my body. The square is covered on 5 sides by stacked paper stars of various colors, the dimensions of my being into which I extend my self-love.We know that when we’re happy, we beam positive energy outward. All of us thrive on the commingling of positive energy when we love someone and have that love reciprocated. Although love can trigger that positive force, happiness isn’t dependent on love…it really begins within…then we can allow that inner harmony to enhance how we experience love.

For many of us who were neglected, bullied or abused early in life, we might perceive being in love it as an obligatory precedent to being happy. Although love might seem unattainable, if we first focus on becoming happy, we will be more capable of and comfortable with loving someone.

From my own perspective, once I learned to work with my spirit, I was surprised that I was able to experience a more profound happiness. Prior to that I was like a lovelorn puppy, and the notion of love was confusing, disappointing and practically meaningless. Ever since I made a connection with my spirit, I’ve been truly loving life!

"Glowing Hearts" by Leo Jean (aka Leo's Logo)Last Monday marked the 30-year anniversary of the day I met the man who introduced me to my spirit and how it works with the Light*. Leo Jean taught me that, in order to love someone else, I first had to love myself completely – and that brought me the happiness I had been craving. Although he recently left the physical plane in which we shared our love together, Leo’s exemplary joy continues to shine as a beacon into my life every day. Since our meeting I have generated my own happiness, not as a reflection of my physical world, but as a measure of my progress toward harmony with my spirit.

The phenomenal way in which my spirit and I use the Light brings me essential and lasting happiness. When life gets difficult, I draw my inspiration from within and, with the help of my higher self and my spirit, I generate happiness from all aspects of my repertoire.

thermal emotions

Yesterday evening as I walked through the snow-covered streets, a neighbor’s dog that I’ve only seen a couple of times saw me from across the road. All of a sudden the big frisky Lab took off across the street, jumped right into the 4-foot snow bank up to his shoulders and made a beeline for me. Upon emerging from the depths of the snow to the cleared sidewalk, the frisky Lab shook off the snow and greeted me, happily his wagging tail, and nudged me for a pat on his head. His owner walked across the street toward me, shaking his head, and quite seriously explained: “I’ve never seen him do that before!” As the big Lab bounded back across the street to his driveway, still excited and happy, I laughed and called out: “That’s okay. I think he likes me!”  (Dogs are very receptive to happy spirits, too!)

When we’re happy within, we can freely and timelessly share love and exuberance with everyone!

Withstand

Trimmed TreesWhen we consider that our spirits are an essential aspect of our being, we can engage their energy and timeless knowledge to enhance our lives. As we proceed through life, we can each stand with our spirit as we constantly adapt at all levels to the ever-changing circumstances of our life experience.

Throughout our lives there will always be challenges to confront yet, if we work to refuse and eliminate negativity as it presents itself, we can more easily glide into balance at all levels. Although some of us continue to struggle with the ongoing aftermath that earlier neglect, bullying or abuse has inflicted upon our wellbeing, we can effectively reduce the negative baggage we carry by refusing its influence properly.

As we cope and deal with emotional turmoil as it erupts from time to time, we can take steps toward limiting the impact of its residual negativity upon our wellbeing.

The learning and implementation of fundamental spiritual principles can help you become aware of and counteract higher-level negativity, so you can get on a positive footing in stride with the highest part of your being.

As we learn to withstand and deal with all the negativity that attempts to undermine our efforts to enjoy our lives, we can move through life with a much lighter step. Once you let go of the negative tendencies you’ve grown accustomed to accepting as part of your burden, you’ll realize that you had been allowing it to weigh you down, rather than releasing its friction.

Solo Tree

When you…

STAND UP FOR YOURSELF…you develop strength at all levels.

STAND FOR SOMETHING…you bring strength of purpose to enhance your wellbeing.

STAND OUT AS YOURSELF… you’ll recognize the unique individual you are.

STAND WITH YOUR SPIRIT… you’ll establish unsurpassed energy and harmony.

As we position ourselves within this dimension of spacetime, we learn to stand not before or behind others, but beside them in our quest for greater meaning and enduring happiness in our life experience.

Sensational Self-Esteem

hs-2005-12-e-full_jpg.jpg Eagle Nebula, M16, NGC 6611, IC 4703#4 on my list of “10 Reasons to Work With Your Spirit”…

Our individual uniqueness is the most incredible part of our physical existence.  As diverse as the heavenly bodies in the cosmos, we truly are a remarkable menagerie on our planet!

As children we naturally love ourselves and celebrate how different we are from everyone else.  However, many of us suffer from bullying or abuse as children and, for the rest of our lives, we struggle to deal with the consequences at all levels of our being.

Once we’ve been bullied or abused, we have to go through the mental and emotional processes that result from the events that occurred.  We suffer in silence and struggle to fit in, as the lingering negative memories deteriorate our ability to exercise self-love.

In the meantime, we aren’t even aware that we’ve accepted higher-level influences that interfere with our relationship with our spirit.  The early onset of spiritual negativity can attract a continuous stream of negativity over our lifetime that causea the self-imposition of ever-deteriorating self-esteem.

By working with your spirit, you’ll view your precious self in much more positive terms!  You’ll understand that the ongoing interference that was causing you to think less of yourself was nurtured by the negativity that you had been accumulating over the course of your lifetime.

Once you start refusing and counteracting higher-level negativity, your efforts will have a trickle-down effect that continually refreshes your enthusiasm for your individuality.  Your positive thoughts and emotions will become the norm and positive energy will emanate throughout all levels of your being.

You can sensationalize your self-esteem by allowing yourself to… hs-2013-43-a-web

  • Love and accept yourself totally for who you are!
  • Quit comparing yourself to others – they’re not you!
  • Forgive yourself for ever having believed you weren’t always awesome!
  • Refrain from reflecting on what could have or should have been!
  • Shed the shame and reclaim your worth and dignity!
  • Believe in yourself and expand on your positive points!
  • Embrace your ever-evolving uniqueness!
By working with your spirit in the most positive terms, the luminosity of your spirit’s Light* as it progresses will bring a more sophisticated perspective to your life in the context of your grander existence in the cosmos.

Expanding on #2 on my list of “10 Reasons to Work With Your Spirit”…

From the awkwardness of shyness to the extreme anxiety of terror, all fear is essentially the same.  

Wild animals instinctively assess their position whenever they encounter an unknown or dangerous situation.  Likewise we, as humans, instantaneously assess for a fight or flight response and our fear can either freeze us in terror or cause courage to emerge.

For many of us the lingering memories of childhood experiences set off alarms when we’re faced with threatening circumstances.  Many of us were bullied, abused or continually cautioned with negatives like: “Don’t…! ” or “You’ll never…!”  Such phrases seem to crop up whenever we’re faced with challenges to our wellbeing.

As a consequence, the negative memories stored over time at the physical, mental and higher levels contribute to self-doubt and indecisiveness.  These limitations on our ability to adapt healthfully to change inhibit us from reaching our full potential.

On top of the physical and mental effects of fear, spiritual negativity is attracted during distressing situations and we carry that accumulation into adulthood.  Fearful events often cause a child to open up to one or more negatively oriented spirits that remain with them throughout their lifetime.

Fear is the greatest of negative tools, and built up spiritual negativity amplifies the effect of past memories and the perceived threat of a challenging situation.  Fear can be real or imagined and sensible solutions are best prompted when we’re steadily cool, calm and collected.

Last summer, I was confronted with what might have been an alarming experience in a grocery store parking lot, but my ongoing work with my spirit proved very effective.  A woman’s plastic shoe became stuck under the accelerator of her SUV, causing her to race toward me with such force that she ran into another SUV and that vehicle struck another.  The SUV missed me by only a few inches, yet I maintained my presence of mind, called 911 and headed home, remarkably composed.

Because I know how to work with my spirit, I automatically refused the perceived negativity as soon as I heard the screeching sound of the driver spinning her tires.  So my spirit and I were already counteracting the wave of negative energy directed toward me before the SUV sped past just behind me.

The more higher-level awareness you acquire, the better prepared you’ll be when fear strikes.  Instead of allowing the onset of bodily chemical processes to further complicate your response to simple stressful situations or major catastrophic events, your higher self and spirit can help you to go forward in confidence.

By going within to work with your spirit, you’ll take charge of all aspects of your being and bring your spiritual knowledge into play.  You’ll be more composed to better assess fear-triggering situations so you’re prepared to respond rationally.

Getting rid of fear and self-doubt are only part of what working with your spirit can add to your life…just imagine how strong and confident you’ll become as you progress!

Being Happy

Expanding on #1 on my list of “10 Reasons to Work With Your Spirit”…

In order for a star to become a star, it must first go through a process of forming its components that will eventually turn into the nuclear reactor at its core.  Not unlike becoming a star, in order to become a positively oriented being into which the Light* will flow, your spirit needs your help as an essential component of this process.

When I think of working with my spirit, “Happiness” is the first thought that comes to mind.  Just look at the diagram below and you’ll see how we light up thermally when we’re beaming with happiness!

Our lives are constantly transforming, not only from the choices we make personally at all levels, but also from the impact of exterior factors that either interfere with our wellbeing or bring us happiness.  We start off as beautiful happy children, idealistically viewing our world with the utmost optimism but, for so many, some incident starts spoiling the joy.  Whether it’s an off-hand remark, the effect of bullying or an abuse event, there are repercussions as the negativity hits at all levels and becomes engrained as memories.

Children are experts at returning to positive mode after troubling events but, as we grow older, lingering memories often crop up when least expected.  A child’s natural self-love nurtures their ability to work harmoniously with their spirit and the Light*, which enables a smoother and gentler transition from despondent to happy.  As we grow older, it often seems more complicated to get back to our shining self.

Your spirit should be the most positive part of you and, if you’re working effectively with it, your positive spiritual energy will filter down to you at the physical level.  If you’re not working with a positively oriented spirit, you’re missing out on the potential exuberant energy extended by such a spirit.

thermal emotions

If unpleasant thoughts keep popping up in your mind and you can’t shake them, there are usually higher-level reasons why you’re in this negative position.  Thought waves rebound across space and time, within your brain and from others.  When you learn to work with your spirit, you’ll discover ways to block incoming negative thoughts and how to more effectively adjust your thought patterns and get back to positive thinking.

If someone says something offensive or you experience a troubling event, you should be prepared spiritually for the onslaught of negative feelings and aftereffects of such events.  When involved in negative affronts by insensitive people, it’s amazingly effective to counteract the negative energy by going to work immediately at the higher level.  Then you can more easily deal with the physical aspects and get back to being happy within yourself.

Everyone has a different perspective about happiness, so you can’t compare yours to someone else’s experience.  Your personal happy state can be seen as the harmony you find at all levels of your being throughout the continuum of your life experience.

Nothing brings out the positive in me like the feeling I get when I see my spirit sparkling at me – that’s the basis of my happiness! What do you do to get yourself to being happy?

Creating Positive Change

A Butterfly Nebula

A Butterfly Nebula

At times it just seems impossible to make changes to better your life, because negativity just keeps bombarding you, no matter what you do.   But – if you’re ready for the most innovative response to eliminating negative intrusions upon your efforts – you can learn to work with your spirit to create positive change!

Since childhood, we’ve been craftily digging ourselves out of the negativity that has interrupted our happiness along the way.  When we were children almost any little slice out of our happy mood sent us brooding, but we always seemed to find a solution that brought us sparkling back into our happy mood.

Over time we became accustomed to allowing higher-level negativity to act as a reinforcement whenever we entered a state of negativity, and it became increasingly hard to emerge from the quagmire. But how do we stop attracting the higher-level negativity that descends upon us when we’ve entered that state?  That’s when working with your spirit and the Light* becomes the most useful.

That’s what your spirit is for…to help you to resist, counteract and eliminate negativity from your life.  Your spirit is just waiting for you to come to the realization that you understand that essential concept and are prepared to work with it.Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture with butterfly in resin base

As your spirit helps you to overcome negativity, in return you help your spirit to progress toward a positive existence.  This whole process involves using the Light as a positive tool in your daily routine.  It’s not just thinking about getting out of a negative mood – it’s about getting into the good habit of refusing and counteracting the negativity that triggers and perpetuates that state.

Once you can extricate yourself from a lackluster state of negativity, you can start making some incredible steps toward the positive ‘you’!  Remember that creative child that always believed you were capable of doing anything you put your mind to?  Well, that ‘you’ is still there, waiting for you to break through that negative blockade you’ve been building around yourself.

Instead of continuously allowing negativity to invade your well-being, you can make positive changes now, by taking daily steps toward your positive future.  Here are some ways to get started:
  1. Accept yourself for you are, right now, in this moment in time. Forgive yourself, then start loving and believing in yourself a little more each day.
  2. Focus on your positive aspects. Avoid comparing yourself to someone else –you’re unique – be genuinely you!
  3. Focus on what’s most important to your well-being right now. Leave behind the negativity of the past…you can’t change it, but you can make improvements as you move forward.Gloria@Niagarawp
  4. Make lifestyle changes that will remove the negative and add more positive elements – get outside and walk in the fresh air; exercise; eat healthier; change your look; do something creative – to bring joy into your life.
  5. Make realistic goals that are achievable in the short-term, so you’re more easily able to attain positive results from your daily efforts.
  6. Make a commitment to work with your spirit and the Light.  Once you learn how to effectively work with your spiritto remove the negative interference, it will be so much easier to make lasting positive changes.
  7. Keep at it every day …creating your positive life is a work in progress!
Remember to work on your positive future in the now – each day makes a difference – because even small changes will accumulate quickly into a shining new positive you!

Thank Yourself for Being You!

peachtreewpSome of us think that our lives are destined to be mediocre, that we have no power to bring ourselves into a level of being that makes us feel more competent, complete and appreciated.

Why do we feel like we’re lost in our everyday struggles, oblivious to the parts of ourselves that could be helpful?  We just sort of amble along, hoping that something will miraculously change and bring us the kind of dynamic life that we think we’re craving.  If that sounds like you, then you’re ready to stir up some changes in your life!

Years ago when I was worrying and feeling helpless about my life, I started looking for something that would create changes at a level that weren’t addressed by traditional remedies.  When I found out about working with my spirit and the Light*, I suddenly became invigorated with the possibilities that my life actually presented.

When you choose to open a positive pathway into your higher-level capabilities, you’ll become more aware of the factors that block access to your inherent talents.  A great deal of the interference that diminishes your self-esteem and creativity originates at the higher level of your being.

What if you’ve been creating the higher-level factors that contribute to such interference because you’ve been accepting and reinforcing your own negative conceptions about yourself? What if you’ve been creating and attracting additional negativity because of those thoughts?  Is it possible that other people pick up on your lack of confidence and low self-esteem, in the same way that you pick up on the over-inflated attitudes of some very self-absorbed people? One thing’s for certain: You’re never going to please everyone all the time, and you have to accept that as part of being human.

Monkey Puzzle Tree

At one time I was shy and afraid of what others might think of me but, once I started to work with my spirit, my self-perspective changed.  I always learn from my interactions with others, whether their opinion appears important or not.

The other day, while I was out for a walk, I stopped to greet a dog on a leash that came running up to me.  The owner immediately started to apologize for her pet, but I assured her that I always welcome such greetings.  The owner told me that her dog never stops to greet anyone, ever.  I considered it a compliment to have such a discerning animal set me apart for a greeting, as though it was her acknowledgment of my harmony within.

How can you begin to accept yourself the way you are, so that you can feel comfortable about being the person you truly are inside?  That’s what self esteem’s  all about!  When you start to love yourself and believe in yourself, you’ll suddenly realize your positive qualities and allow them to flow outward into the world.

As you look at yourself from a positive perspective, accept yourself, then thank yourself and take it from there!

10 Reasons to Work With Your Spirit

If you’ve never heard of working with your spirit, it’s probably because the knowledge has been lost in time with the building of our civilization.  You’ve heard about the spiritual teachings of prophets that had wonderful experiences and sparked the evolution of various religions, and maybe you’ve even followed them, but you’ve never been told about your own innate ability to work with your spirit.

Too many spirits live through countless numbers of lives without any progress, because their forms are oblivious about how to participate in the process.

Here are some of the ways that you could benefit from your essential ability of working with your spirit:

  1. You’ll feel happy inside.  Happy like you did when you were a very young child because, back then, you were working with your spirit as a natural part of being alive.  You’ll learn higher-level ways to counteract incoming streams of depressing thoughts before they overwhelm and send you into emotional gloom.
  2. You’ll get rid of the negativity of fear and doubt.  You’ll realize that a lot of the fears and doubts that cause anxiety come not only from the lingering memories of past experiences, but from outside yourself in the spiritual and inter-dimensional realms.  You’ll learn how to refuse and deal with it effectively.
  3. You’ll stop accepting other forms of negativity.  You’ll have an advantage over the onslaught of negative thoughts and emotions that trigger reactions such as guilt, anger, hatred, sadness, shame, self-pity, jealousy, depression, greed, frustration, possessiveness and all the others that interfere with your feeling of wellness.  Your spirit will assist you to overcome such negativity!
  4. Your self-esteem will skyrocket. Your self-confidence will increase as you exercise self-love.  And you’ll be able to accept and see yourself as the unique, beautiful and worthy individual you truly are!
  5. You’ll be self-motivated to get healthy.  Have you ever wanted to get back into shape, start eating a healthy diet or stop smoking or drinking, but just never got it together?  By self-healing with your spirit, you’ll not only feel motivated, you’ll feel totally at ease as you gain and maintain great health!
  6. You’ll take back your free will.  If you’ve ever struggled against factors that interfere with the direction in which you want to take your life, you’ll take back control by identifying the negative factors that interfere with decision making and cloud your judgment about your needs and wants.  You’ll be in charge of your life once and for all!
  7. You’ll unleash your inner creativity.  One of our greatest attributes we have as human beings is our ability to create.  Not only is it a talent, it’s as necessary to your spiritual well-being as it is to your physical/mental health.  Self-expression brings relaxation and concentration together in harmony as you create an art form that’s uniquely you!
  8. You’ll understand yourself better.  During childhood you probably had a better understanding of yourself than you do now, because you were still working with your spirit.   Once you reconnect, your spirit will bring you a fundamentally comforting sense of self once again.
  9. You’ll feel calm, even amid all the chaos.  When all hell breaks loose around you, you’ll be able to call upon your spirit to help you to return to a tranquil state  within yourself so you can deal with it all cool, calm and collectively.
  10. You’ll progress with your spirit.  As you gain strength by working with your spirit, you’ll progress at both the physical and spiritual levels.  By following the fundamental guidelines of how to remain in the positive realm, you’ll feel more empowered as you incrementally gain and implement positive spiritual knowledge.
If you’re anything like me, once you’ve heard about working with your spirit, you’ll want to start immediately…Your spirit’s waiting for you!

Counteracting Negative Impact

Asteroids orbiting in main belt between Mars and Jupiter via hubblesite.org Image Credit: R. Evans & K. Stapelfeldt (JPL) and NASAAt times our existence on this planet seems so precarious, especially when we experience such wakeup calls as the asteroid flyby and explosive meteor over southern Russia February 15th.  Just as world governments bear the responsibility of creating the means by which we can protect our planet from such natural hazards, we all bear the responsibility to refuse negativity so that each of our spirits can progress positively within us.

A few weeks ago, as I was pulling the car onto the road in front of our (former) house outside Montréal, I looked up toward the east and saw a bright fireball cascading across the sky.  Since it was so bright, at first I thought it might have been an aircraft on fire.  But, as I watched it arcing across my line of vision, I saw it glow reddish then disappear, so I knew I’d seen a meteor.  And it was fascinating!  By that time I had already begun to regard the impending impact of a large celestial object striking our planet as a real possibility yet, at that moment, the sight of that fireball simply filled me with a sense of wonder.  Afterward it brought home with greater validity the realization that asteroids are part of our planet’s natural environment.

Although the recent cosmic activity has alerted the general public to the very real possibility of a celestial body creating havoc on our planet, there have already been steps taken by NASA to track and map the largest asteroids, but they’ve only located a few.  What’s needed is international cooperation to fund and create the advanced technology necessary to enable the deflection of such asteroids as Apophis, the big one that’s heading our way in 2029 and again in 2036.  If we do nothing, we risk the chance of a direct hit.  Just thinking about it isn’t enough.

In his Newsweek article, Dr. Michio Kaku outlined some of the proposed technology that would alleviate the threat, adding:

“It is inevitable that one day we will be hit, and hit hard. It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. We realize this every time we see the pockmarked surface of the moon. Unfortunately, without an early-warning system, we don’t know when such an impact might take place.”  (See link to entire article below.)

Just like asteroids and comets are attracted to our planet, negativity is at some level attracted to each one of us.   We’re all being bombarded day and night with negativity and, unless we commit to doing something about it, we’re sitting targets to this constant negative pummeling.  The little grains-of-sand meteor-type hits are easy but, eventually, a big hit will come in and bring with it the kind of personal devastation that no one desires.  There are always positive solutions when you’re ready to create them, but it’s always so much harder to counteract negativity when you’re caught off guard in a state of weakness without means and knowledge.

Here are a few ways to fight the negativity in your daily life:

  1. Make a commitment to yourself to refuse negativity whenever it arises. Become more aware of the negativity that you’re accepting.  Take a few seconds to refuse all sources.  As you get used to doing this, you’ll get better at it.
  2. Refusing negativity is the first step, but you also need to replace the negativity with something positive. Remove yourself from the negative environment.  Go for a walk in the fresh air; excuse yourself from a negative conversation; get rid of objects that remind you of past negative situations.
  3. Take steps to change your situation, if you’re unhappy with the way your life is unfolding.  Quit worrying and regretting.  Forgive yourself more often. Start looking for a new job; strengthen or end relationships; move into a new location that suits you better; you get the drift of it!
  4. Love yourself a little more.  Start doing more of the things that you love to do for yourself: Exercise more, eat better, sleep better; play a musical instrument; build something; learn something new that interests and/or pleases you! There are plenty of ways to make your life more positive–be creative!
  5. “Ideally” request a healing/removal from me.  I will immediately remove the large packets of spiritual negativity and allow you to start from a position of strength.
Just as the world needs to find act to diffuse the inevitability of an asteroid hitting the Earth, only by fighting back against negativity, by building strength of resistance and by creating a positive stance will we endure the impact of negative personal onslaughts.

Side note: After our move from Montréal, I thought I’d see if there were any reports on record about the meteor I’d seen. I found that, according to the American Meteor Society, 50 reports had been received about the fireball (a meteor that is larger than normal), and it’s rare for an individual to see one or two fireballs per lifetime. (Wow!)

No Worries…Just the Best Possible Outcome

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture mounted on shiny blue glassSome of the most negative thinking comes to mind as regret or worry.  Regrets are negative thoughts about the past, while worries are negative thoughts about the future.  Neither of them has any validity in the present, but they are recurring thoughts that unnecessarily interfere with our wellbeing.

The best way to deal with such negative thinking is to at first realize that it’s just wasted time.  Leo used to always ask people: “Do you worry a lot?”  With the almost-always affirmative reply, he’d say:

“If you worry a lot, then you’re a professional at doing nothing.  You have to act to do something about it.”

Those strong words were directed at me when I first met Leo, because I was under a cloud of worry-tivity – my world was full of worry.  I worried about everyone else, too, because I had become an expert at worrying.  I spent my childhood learning all about the ins and outs of worrying from my mother who was an expert at worrying about everything and everybody.  That’s even worse than worrying about one’s own problems, because there’s really nothing anyone can do about someone else’s problems.

I gladly learned that worrying is simply fear of the future.  While we can and should act to make our future the reality that we desire, we still have to go through all the positive steps that will lead to that future.  Our lives are a work in progress, so we need to understand that every constructive action we take will lead us in a positive direction toward our goals.  And we must be prepared to ad lib and make changes as external events act upon us.

Worrying takes us nowhere, but it causes a distraction in our normal thought processes and takes us into the negative realm.  Once we’re submersed in negative thinking patterns (i.e. the go-nowhere good-for-nothing worrying), we also attract negative energy/spirits that fuel the process and feed off of the negative energy that we’ve created.

When I was learning to refuse negativity, I learned to counteract the act of worrying, that had forced me into the corner of doing nothing about my problems.  While I was worrying, I wasn’t formulating a plan of how to solve my problems; I was just adding to them.  While I was a ‘worry-wart’ I was unable to disassociate myself from the future negativity that I was creating in my mind.  In other words, I was heading straight into negative territory every time I worried.

In addition to attracting negative energy/spirits when we worry a lot, there are greater spiritual implications.  Mental and emotional negativity converge at the throat chakra and can allow damage to the spiritual opening, causing additional physical side effects such as thyroid malfunction.  When I started to work with my spirit and learned to refuse the negativity that invaded my thoughts every time I thought about my future, I was able to direct myself in a positive direction.  Not only had I been creating undue mental stress, but I was unable to enjoy the luxury of physical relaxation.  When I let go of my worrying, I was able to allow my body to relax and heal.  As I learned to relax, refuse negative thoughts and to take action to direct my own future, I let go of my expertise at worrying and all its negative side effects.

 “Energy turned back on itself creates stress.  Energy allowed to flow freely allows relaxation.” ~Leo JeanLeo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture mounted on slice of blue rock

As I worked with my spirit and emerged from my worrying pastime, I saw so much more potential in my life than as a survivor of spousal abuse.  In a time of high unemployment while I was training to work as Leo’s assistant, I found interim work as the manager of a portrait studio (350 applicants) and renewed my interest in coaxing babies to break out their smiles (toothless or not!)  Once I started to love myself, believe in myself and care for myself both physically and spiritually, I abandoned my expertise at worrying and became the director of my future.

Whether we believe in fate or determinism, it seems true that everything happens for a reason so that we can learn and benefit from both the positives and the negatives in life.  As long as we direct ourselves in the best ways possible, it does us no good to worry about events that are beyond our control.  For instance, while we await the ‘end date’ of the Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012, we can choose to view it simply as the end of a calendar, as the date of a possible global catastrophe or as the beginning of an enlightened era in human history.  From the quantum perspective of the Many Worlds Theory, every action we take could manifest countless alternative outcomes in other parallel universes, but we get only one.

As we gain more insight about our place in the multiverse, we ought to face our future with confidence and optimism for the best possible outcome, so that we can allow ourselves to prosper at all levels of existence.

What Drives Children’s Negative Actions?

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture atop mermaid figurine imbedded in resinAs children we develop our individual sense of how to interact with others and, depending on our spiritual orientation, the results can be quite different.  Some children learn a sense of positive morality from their experiences, while others accept the negatively-charged energy they receive from their mistreatment of others.

When I was only 2 years old I committed my first negative action against another living being, when I was unjustly punished and reacted in a surprising way.  (I have a rather vivid memory of certain early childhood events, and this one still stands out.)  My brother (who was still crawling) and I were playing on the floor beside his crib when he reached over and spilled the baby powder, just like he’d done the day before.  The first time he spilled the powder my mother came into the room and swatted me on the behind, because she assumed that I had done it.  This time, I wasn’t going to get blamed, so I remember biting my brother on the forearm and, while he burst into a loud cry, I ran into my parents’ bedroom and hid deep inside the closet so that my mother couldn’t find me.  In my toddler’s mind, it was a split-second reaction to hurt my brother in response to my fear of being punished again because of his actions.  (Poor little guy, with my teeth marks on his arm!)

A few years later, when I was 6 years old, I remember how some of the older kids used to get a big charge out of swinging us around by the arms and then letting us go.  As we went flying off in a slingshot effect then tumbled to the ground with a dazed look on our faces, they laughed in glee.  One day, when no one was around, I remember taking the plunge myself.  I swung one of the 5-year-old neighbor girls around and let her go.  As she started to cry because she was so dazed and, most probably with hurt feelings, I felt a great sense of guilt and remorse.  It was the first and last time I would ever treat another human being that way. From that child came my own cries; her grief was my own.  Although I apologized at the time, and I remember apologizing to her again when we were older, the girl never even remembered the event.  That experience gave me the insight never to be mean to anyone again, and was probably the cornerstone of my moral development.

So what makes a child mean?  From a spiritual perspective, if I had a negatively oriented spirit, I probably never would have felt any remorse about hurting either my little brother or the neighbor girl.  As a 2-year-old, my actions were merely for self-preservation with no sense of right or wrong but, with a little more brain power at age 6, I was able to make a positive moral judgment that changed my behavior.

However, a child with a negatively oriented spirit might have enjoyed the negative energy created during their mistreatment of another living being, because they might have already experienced abuse or brutality as normal.  Their spirit would have grown more negative as the abuse events continue, in their role as both a recipient victim and an emerging perpetrator.  The abusive actions of a child attract negative energy/spirits that fuel their desire to continue to hurt others, as negative spirits feed off the negative energy that is generated.  A child who bullies others is a child in trouble at all levels.

From the perspective of a child who’s on the receiving end of bullying, they’re becoming conditioned not to resist or to fight back.  The first time a bullying event occurs a child becomes afraid, the first step to the acceptance of future incidents.  At the spiritual level, the bullied child starts to receive negative spiritual input that originates with and perpetuates the fear response.  Even if their spirit was more positively oriented at the start, it will inevitably lose ground to the overwhelming influx of negativity created by the bullying.

One of my greatest joys is to help a child by introducing them to their spiritual self and the Light*, so that they canLeo Jean's Starlike© paper sculptures atop colorful glass on resin base gain a fundamental understanding of their individuality from a spiritual perspective.  Learning to work with their spirit brings them so much self-esteem and mindfulness of their extraordinary potential to overcome such obstacles as the impact of bullying.  They quickly see that they have allowed bullying to affect them and that they need to refuse the spiritual negativity that perpetuates the abusive behavior on both ends.  For kids of all ages:

I believe in myself.  I never doubt myself.
I am a winner and I am fully capable of succeeding in all that I choose. ~Leo Jean

The spiritual motivation behind bullying, criminal actions of all kinds and the calamity of war is the same: Negative spirits feed off of the negative energy that negative actions generate.  Hopefully more people will turn inward with a positive spiritual outlook, so that more positive energy is generated at all levels on our planet.

The Potential of a Positive Spirit

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture mounted on glass cart with sun faceAt some point early in life there should be a catalyst that sparks each child into believing in their own unique potential.

Children are subjected to the world that is presented to them by their parents, family, playmates, school and community.  When a troubled child is without guidance and encouragement, it makes it especially hard for them to envision a bright future.  Unfortunately, even in our western world there are too many children who are born into an existence that strains their ability to cope with difficulty and to have a positive outlook on their future.

Over the years I’ve seen that positive change is possible in any troubled child’s life, if they’re extended the opportunity to accept who they are through a positive sense of self.  A young Portuguese boy, Luis*, clearly demonstrated how quickly a child can alter their self-image, when they realize their special qualities as an individual.

Luis’ mother had come to see us because of the significant head and back pain that she was suffering, due to some manual labor at work.  After her first session, the single mother of 3 decided to bring her children to see us, so that they could each receive a new positively oriented spirit as she had done.  On her second visit, we met Luis and his sisters.

Luis was 10 years old and extremely shy.  He barely said a word as we talked with his mom and sisters and, when it was his turn to work with us, he was receptive, but not really sure of himself.  One of his eyes wandered off to the side, so Leo removed the large negative energy/spirit that had contributed to the muscle weakness, and introduced a Light**-committed spirit for him to work with as his own.   In order to help Luis gain enough confidence to focus on his self-healing, Leo showed him that he had much more potential power when he worked with his spirit.  Luis was impressed when he saw that he was capable of twisting a spoon into a knot, but Leo wanted him to know that he was a lot more spiritually powerful than that.

Leo used to exercise his mind power by initiating movement in a chrome decoration that sat on his desk.   At rest a little chrome ballerina that dangled from a wire above a flat round base simply stood still but, as Leo focused his mind power to energize the figurine, it would spin and ‘dance’ around the little platform.  (I always marveled at how Leo could do that, but I was never able to do it myself!)

As Leo showed Luis how he could make the ballerina dance, the boy watched attentively. Leo suggested that he concentrate toChrome ballerina similar to that which demonstrated mind power energy make the dancer move, just as he had focused to twist the spoon, only this time he couldn’t touch the metal.  With seemingly little effort from a few feet away, Luis started to move the ballerina from her rest position into a swirling dance, just as Leo had showed him. All of a sudden, the ballerina stopped, as Luis realized what he had done and stopped concentrating.  Then he started to move it again. His face lit up with a big smile that glowed across the room.

Then, Leo did what I always saw as so earnestly supportive – he gave the chromed ballerina to Luis, saying: “No one else has ever done it.  Now it’s yours!”  Well, that little boy’s grin was as wide as his face as he looked over at his mother with a look of pride and accomplishment.

Who would have assumed that a timid child would respond to such a challenge and surpass everyone’s expectations?  Then Leo revealed the purpose of challenging Luis in that way.  Leo guided Luis to use his newly-found ability not only in daily self-healing, but also to work with his spirit to channel the Light to remove the negative memory of the spirit that had caused his eye to be off-center, and to stop any other negative spirits that tried to come in as replacements.

Upon his next visit, Luis’ eye was markedly improved.  On his third visit, two weeks later, Luis’ eye was already centered properly!  Not only was Luis’ eye corrected, but he was also full of genuine self-esteem and self-confidence.  His smiling face and sparkling blue eyes shone with positive energy and he talked and laughed as though he had never been shy before.  This incredible boy, whose life was so lackluster before he realized his positive spiritual power, was now a vibrantly confident child.

It doesn’t matter at what age a person starts to work with their spirit. The introduction of a positive spiritual self can change even the most lackluster life into one that teems with positive potential.

The Power to Refuse Negative Thoughts

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture atop crystal baseNegative thoughts are constantly bombarding all of us as we navigate through our lives, but some people are tormented because they have so little power to refuse them. When someone is prone to persistent negative thoughts, there is most often a spiritual reason that prevents them from overcoming their persuasion.

Every living being on our planet is born with the instinct to survive, and each individual has the remarkable capacity to overcome a myriad of negative obstacles.  However, when one’s resolve has been compromised by the intrusion of negative energy/spirits, it diminishes their capacity to resist the impact of higher level  negativity.

Why are some people more sensitive than others, so that they seem to attract and absorb more negativity?  Although it’s partly due to their level of perception and intuitive knowledge of how to deal with it, I think there’s a spiritual reason at its core.  When a child is bothered at the higher level, he or she will simply say: “No!” and it’s usually enough to stop the negative influence but, if a child is subjected to abuse, they’re susceptible to being overwhelmed by the negative energies/spirits that are attracted to such events.

When I met Leo Jean, he told me how he had helped over 40 suicidal teenagers by giving them a more positive outlook on their life.  In the few years prior to our meeting, kids from the community used to ask Leo if they could talk with him; all of them had been abused in one way or the other; and Leo helped them to identify with how he had overcome his own difficult experiences to discover there was a way past their own problems.  Leo says of the tough times: “It’s just a passage of time.”

It’s alarming to me why so many people seriously contemplate committing suicide because, to me, it’s like committing self-murder and I could never hurt anyone, let alone myself.  In my entire life, despite everything I went through, I only once had the thought of ending it all.  I was 16 at the time, and it was just a fleeting thought.  But I made sure that I immediately removed it from my mind, because it stunned me that I would have such a negative idea.  I’ve always believed that in life there must always be something bright and positive to move toward on the other side of any difficulty.

So where did that thought come from?  Was there a part of me that was so negative that I would resort to such destruction?  Or, at a time when I was emotionally distraught, did the thought come from outside myself and I mistook it for my own?  I think it was the latter.  It was only during my work with Leo that I was able to fully understand that the energy of such a negative thought comes from the higher level and that I had intuitively refused it.

The first time I heard of someone being taunted to self-destruct was over 20 years ago, when a feisty 80-year-old woman came to see us because she was tormented by a cacophony of voices that were continuously urging her to throw herself from her 5-storey balcony.  More recently was the healing across distance of a very sensitive 20-year-old woman, Lisa*, that had allowed the energies of others to affect her so much that she was unable to turn off her absorption of negativity.  Both women intuitively knew the source of their self-destructive tendencies was spiritual, and they were brave enough to fight back for their lives.

Five years before she contacted us, Lisa had been diagnosed as schizophrenic.  She suffered from extremely painful headaches and was taking medication that helped to lessen, but never removed, the pain.  Lisa explained that she felt she no longer had any “barriers to the negative energy emitted by negative people” and felt that, if it continued, it would lead her to her “ultimate destruction – suicide”.  Yet she went on to describe how she felt those thoughts could not be her own, because she was a very positive, creative and outgoing person.  As a gifted performer, her greatest desire was to be able to stand on stage without the debilitating pain.

Not only had Lisa opened to several spirits years earlier but, as time went on, more of her spiritual openings becameLeo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture atop crystal base jammed open, amplifying her thoughts of self-destruction.  Without a positively oriented spirit to help her at the spiritual level, Lisa had been unable to refuse the onslaught of negativity and had become more susceptible to it.  She had taken time off from university and was living at home; her father was paying for her healing, but we never spoke to him.  She convinced us that she would be ready and able to refuse when we worked with her over the phone.

Once her damaged chakras were repaired and she was closed to negative energy/spirits, Lisa found that, by working with her new positively oriented spirit, she was finally able to close to the destructive energy that she felt around certain people.  During the next month, while she was receiving daily spiritual support, she learned to refuse the negative energies that used to engulf her at university and in other public places.  Her headaches stopped; she was off to work in another country with friends for the summer; and she looked forward to returning to school in the fall.

A strong resolve and a positively oriented spirit provide the refusal power that’s needed to defeat self-destructive and other negative thoughts that can be emanating from a higher level source.
