Claim Who You Are

Watching Serena Williams begin her last US Open tournament event was exhilarating. I actually felt an uplifting boost from it.

It’s all energy that radiated from NYC through the TV into me, uplifting me.

Who can you simply be around that uplifts you?

When someone is around you does your energy uplift them?

What I notice is Serena has no false sense of self or fake self-confidence. It seems a lot of people have a problem saying ‘Yes, I am’ to someone saying their the G.O.A.T.

We encourage children to believe in them self but by teenage years we think they are full of them self if they say ‘Yes, I am’. Ernest Holmes said to announce, pronounce, and claim who you are.

Are You Being Programmed?

The Power of Suggestion.

Cedar Tree Allergen Cloud

Allergies

I lived in Austin, Texas for more than 24 years. Besides having a natural beauty to it and a progressive vibe, It is a haven for allergies year-round. So much so that the weather forecast includes an allergy forecast for the current allergens.

Watching the news, I noticed them say things like ‘If you have lived here for 5 to 7 years you will get cedar fever’. Sometimes they would say ‘this is cedar fever season’. Cedar trees shake off their cedar pollens. They look like a massive cloud of dust coming off each tree and there are a lot of cedar trees.

Since I do my best to monitor and choose the thoughts that I let into my mind, I pick this stuff apart.

“You don’t tell me what to think”

https://media.giphy.com/media/G1vSQTIvPtbEY/giphy.gif

“Cedar Fever Seasons!?!?” I would think, questioning them. There are 4 seasons in nature and it does include cedar fever.

After living there for more than the predicted 5-to-7-year affliction setting in time, I would question why they are saying these words? It was not true for me.

I had experienced it once for 6 months once and declared I never would again…and that’s the benefit of what I train; it works.

That’s like a belief someone else gives you and you take it on without considering the impact of it on your life.

The thoughts from others that you accept into your thinking, our consciousness, have an impact on you. Their impact is in the words, the intent of the statement.

Be your own thought input monitor. Choose what to believe.

Sneezing

https://tenor.com/6uW6.gif

In Austin I started sneezing 5 or more times about every 2 weeks or so. It is funny what people would say.

“Are you catching a cold?” No

“Do you have allergies?” No

“The flu is going around. I hope you’re not catching it.” I’m not catching the flu. I haven’t had the flu in decades.

The logical mind needs to understand things. Their brain is programmed to connect the act of sneezing with a health problem of some sort which inevitably becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Who wants that?

An untrained mind cannot handle that it is just a series of sneezes. The logical mind does not like change and not knowing. It has a need to explain everything. Nothing can be left up to the unknown. Why? The logical mind, the basis for the egoic awareness, needs to know. Your Mind does not have to know. The ego will come up with normal thoughts and sayings in culture to conclude as to why Lamar is sneezing so many times…even if it is wrong.

All because most minds cannot handle hanging out in the unknown. What a loss for so many. In the unknown hangout zone exists the portal for new ideas.

The intuitive mind and the heart center are not driven by that need to understand things. It does not need to know why. They are portals for new thoughts and feelings.

I finally started saying ‘no’ to their questions by saying that I think my body began doing this to keep the allergens, the pollens, out of my sinuses. That fed their need to know while maintaining my control over what thoughts I accept into me. I am in charge of that. No one else is unless I give them permission.

The body has its own intelligence and it knows how to handle some of these things…as long as we do not buy into them.

Mental Housekeeping

In some classes we do Mental Housekeeping to help bring forth a mindfulness of what thoughts people are having that are not their thoughts; those are thoughts from others that we have accepted as true. Therefore, they are now ours unless we do some mental housekeeping where we notice our thoughts and choose whether they benefit us, or not.

It is your mind.

They are your thoughts.

Like closet Spring cleaning,

give back to others their thoughts  that do not serve you.

Keep or trash your thoughts.

It is Your Life. Your choice.

You cannot hire a maid to come and do this Spring cleaning. LOL

Thought Directs | Stay Flexible

Thought Creates Reality with The Natale Institute is a class I took in Houston after living in the Far East right out of college. I was about 28 years old and an electrical engineer and searching for deep answers about life. This was eye opening. It was six weeks of learning how thought creates reality through somewhat straight forward and lots of outside the box ideas that helped to change my life, my thinking about life’s possibilities, and my modus operandi

I still use these concepts, modified and added to, to set the direction I am going in life.

New ideas are always great to try out. Though, what really matters is results and experiences. That is when it impacted me to shake up the way I thought about me, my life and possibilities.

Choose Your Thoughts => Choose Your Life

Don’t adopt my beliefs. Use these new ways and witness your own results.

In a class, I tell people to not adopt my beliefs blindly. Consider your life to be a scientific experiment. A scientist changes an ingredient in the lab and witnesses the changed result. I encourage students to use the concepts. Then witness the resulting changes in life. When people make their own beliefs as a result of this, those beliefs stick and positively effect their life.

How flexible are you? No, not physically…

One of the biggest things I learned was to make sure I keep my thoughts and beliefs flexible. We age by trapping ourselves into a box that worked when we were 20-something. But at 50-something life is too tightly defined and new adventures are not given a second thought.

For example: When I got my driver’s license and a car the cost of gas was $0.57 per gallon. If I go to fill up with gas and get upset that gas costs so much more, then I am not living in life as it is. My old belief does not fit into current world I live in. I have created a mental situation that will always upset me. Personally, I do not want to set myself up for that upset. So, I change my beliefs to keep up.

We always have a choice.

Remain in our box, meaning the limits of what we think is possible, is one choice. This is when we feel cramped and our wings need to expand. Ever felt like you could not expand yourself in life? Kind of like claustrophobia in an energetic box that is too small. A person might become an old curmudgeon holding onto the past too tightly. Ever met someone set in their ways and beliefs so tightly? Ever been that someone?

Does your life box have room for you to expand?

It just pisses us off if reality now does not match reality as we think it should be. Take that as a sign to change something within.

So, what’s the other choice? Update our thoughts and beliefs to match the current NOW in which we live. Are you flexible in your thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors? I found practicing these concepts I have been teaching and coaching for a while, help me feel younger than my physical age.

I have to remind myself when I get lazy about it…Lamar, remember. Keep going forward. Stay up with the times. Society evolves and so can you.

I am willing to have new experiences that are outside my life box. In fact, if my box feels way too tight or I am filled with fears and trepidation about my future…I will seek out a new experience that will blow my limiting life box to smithereens. Do not get me wrong. It is always scary. And I choose to do it anyway.

Kabooey! More room for personal freedom and expansion.

Scary as hell. Works so well.

For the Brave & Broken-hearted by Brené Brown

There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics and fearmongers
than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise.
With skinned knees and bruised hearts; we choose owning our stories of struggle,
over hiding, over hustling, over pretending.
When we deny our stories, they define us.
When we run from struggle, we are never free. So we turn toward truth and look it in the eye.
We will not be characters in our stories.
Not villains, not victims, not even heroes.
We are the authors of our lives. We write our own daring endings.
We craft love from heartbreak, compassion from shame,
grace from disappointment, courage from failure.
Showing up is our power.
Story is our way home. Truth is our song.
We are the brave and brokenhearted.
We are rising strong.

Brené Brown is a Professor and Social Researcher at the University of Houston. I find the specifics she provides about the human condition to be enlightening and extremely useful. She approaches topics that are often avoided: shame, vulnerability, friendship, sharing, joy, perfectionism, more… I find the specifics that come from her research helps me know better ways to relate with myself and others.

Who Uses these Services?

Mind Technology Services are for Companies Who Dare to Lead

Employee wellness and sick days, conflicts, lack of focus, and more problems are linked to how one thinks and feels. These trainings will train people specifically how to manage their thoughts to be more effective at handling their work, life, making decisions, interrelating, and achieving more. It especially trains physiological stress management to instantly relax body, mind, and energies which opens the doors to many new possibilities.

The results will increase the bottom line, open up creativity, lessen healthcare costs, increase retention. You can see this would empower your workforce which can only lead you to greater possibilities in line with the vision.

A bonus is that those who use this more and more will be the employees who rise to the top as the cream of the crop.


Mind Technology Services are for people who:

* want to learn practical empowerment skills so that life becomes what they want it to be.

* are into personal growth and self-empowerment.

* want to change patterns and behaviors that were learned in the family and no longer serve them

* want to shape their career, relationships, and results in life

* want to take control over their wellbeing, manage pain w/o meds, boost their immune system, influence their healing process


Seniors exercise their brain

I learned these skills at age 23 and for the most part have used these skills throughout my life. I am now considered a senior and my brain is sharp, my thinking is clear, memory is good. I have mental flexibility which I consider it to be valuable so that I don’t get stuck in the past fighting the ‘new ways’ of those youngsters. Adapt or stagnate.


These are the most types of people who utilize my services

Professionals who want to improve their finances and career so they can improve their family’s wellbeing.

Nurses, Social Workers, and people with a heart of service. Those who have a heart of service love these techniques. They find that first, it helps them control them self before meeting with a client or patient. Second, they can help to relax a person using the simple relaxation method.

I gave a lunchtime talk at a school for learning challenged children in San Antonio. The owner told me of a study that showed a link between how the teacher feels when s/he walks in to serve and the effectiveness of their results. She learned to use a quick self-centering method and then walked into the room.

Second, these techniques are easily understandable so they could convey some of this to help another person calm down, relax, focus more, etc.

Out of thousands, I have had a handful of doctors dare to take the class. Funny how experts do not need to learn other things. Two of them, only because their girlfriends told them to. When in a class that includes mental healing training, I always put them on the spot: Do you heal the patient? Or do you set the environment for the innate healing mechanisms of the body can do the healing? Of course, it is the latter. And that is what this mind training can help with a lot.

One doctor began an ER center in south Austin and we talked about using the techniques for his medical staff.

Students who want to study less while improving their grades. The results are always great. This studying method causes superior concentration, comprehension and understanding. It indexes learned information so that you have easier recall using the test-taking method.

One friend went from the bad Dean’s list for grades and was surprised at his graduation ceremony to have graduated with honors.

Bottom Line

Your brain is the CPU, central processing unit, of your body. It manages all functions, senses, autonomic systems, nerves, etc. I have stories of nerves re-growing, dire diagnoses being reversed, tumors shrinking and disappearing, extreme pain being controlled to become no pain, skin tags disappearing, and so much more.

Train your brain to access the whole brain and live a better life.

A+ Student Brain Skills for Studying & Test Taking

There is an intelligence to the way we are designed. We have a brain that has multiple modes that, when we use it as such, allows us to live a better and better, creative and powerful life.

We just were never given the Brain Functioning Handbook.

Luckily through mystics, through empirical evidence and now through the wonderful studies in neuroscience we can understand how to more effectively use our brain.

Brain Modes

Briefly, we have at least two brain modes that we access through our mental direction and conscious breath. The Outer Action Mode is for this world of form, using our five physical senses and taking action. This is generally a left brain hemisphere function. The Inner Creative Mode is where you can more easily direct your thoughts, emotions and thus your life. This is generally a right brain hemisphere function.

Many of my blog posts give different perspective on our Brain Modes including:

Supercharge Changes in Life

Improve Your Life – Update Your Mind’s Software

Best Practices for Students

Imagine having superior concentration, comprehension, understanding, and recall when studying and test taking. This is for anyone in life, not just students (see at the end of this post).

In the A+ Student Brain Skills class students of all ages learn mental direction, intent, and self-commands to make studying and test taking much easier. Index the information learned in your brain.

This results in learning how to study less while increasing your grade. For non-students this helps with regaining mental functioning such as focus, self-direction and goal achievement.

An ex of mine went from academic probation to graduating with honors unexpectedly. This testimonial is in ‘What Clients Say’. He played games more than study once he used this new skill

auditorium of students, stand out from the norm
Empower Yourself to Stand out from the Norm

What it takes to Stand out from the crowd

In a bad economy you have to get noticed to be hired, to be promoted and to get a raise. In big classes you have to find a way to excel above all the other students who want to achieve. To live a life that is true to your purpose and to move past your fears these are the skills required.

Stand out or Become the norm

Most people on the planet just do things the way everyone else does them. This is what sets the norm. Why try to fit into someone else’s norms and expectations of you? As we know from the definition of insanity – doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results – you will keep getting what you are getting if you keep doing what you are doing. The same applies as to how to move beyond the societal and expected ‘norms’.

How to take test
Gain an edge – Use your whole brain

Empower a student – Improve our future

Consider a minor investment in your future… one that will keep giving the rest of your life.

If you know of any groups of students or school systems that want to empower their students then we can arrange separate classes. If someone wants to do a new study on the effectiveness of this system then contact me.

Be more effective in life.

Most people think this after taking a test…

Test taking
Thinking you’ll do bad is a self-fulfilling prophecy

Instead, you can walk out knowing that you used the 3 pass test taking method to access the answers…

Not just for students

As a baby boomer I am so glad to have learned these skills at age 24. I notice that my mind works extremely close to my younger mind. Sharp, focusable, trainable, and creative, to list a few nice qualities.

The saying goes “Use It or Lose It”. These skills exercise your brain, yes. AND it goes much further than that. When you learn that you can choose your thoughts to affect change within you, it becomes another dimension of what is possible in your life.

This is for any person, educator, company, training organization, school, senior group or other who wants to exercise their brain with superior concentration, comprehension, understanding, and recall.

Is Your Heart Closed or Open?

For many people…

It is so much easier to close your heart than to heal it.

It is so much easier to avoid that difficult authentic conversation with a friend to clear things up and let your heart stay closed while damaging or ending that friendship.

It is so much easier to justify in your own mind why you are hurt and throw that pain on others rather than sharing it with a trusted friend to be able to let it out and let in some fresh air.

It is so much easier to throw out the skills that make your heart be able to love and share than to walk through the process to heal it.

It is so much easier to avoid authenticity, vulnerability, and intimacy – the skills of an open heart – than to cry some.

It is so much easier to close the door to a trusted friend when your heart is hurting.

It is so much easier to believe the gossip rather than talking authentically with the subject of that gossip.

It is so much easier to shut out the LIGHT of Life rather than walk through the unknown to nourish It.

When I write ‘it is so much easier to…’ the truth is it seems easier but is it?

…it seems easier, but is it? Really?

It seems easier only because you did not learn how to heal…yet.
To learn to heal is to Love Yourself, Others, and Life
Let me help as a licensed spiritual counselor since 1999.

Stop saying ‘time heals all wounds’

When your heart is hurting many people do what is easy: close off the heart, shut down the healing tears, and believe the saying that time heals all wounds. IT DOES NOT.

With time passing, you try to forget all wounds, burying them to become a part of the unconsciousness that drives your life choices…usually not in a healthy way.

It is often why you lash out at someone.

It is often why your depth of feelings are shallower than before.

It is often why you feel others are too distant from you while your closed heart creates this distance.

It is often why you feel separate from yourself and your dreams.

Where you come from within yourself is what you do to and for the world. What is your come from? Love? Fear? Skepticism? Doubt? Faith? Knowing? Pain?

Our ego keeps us stuck & kills countless expansive experiences in life… blog post

Burying your pains

Those heart pains, those breakups, those friends who disappeared from you, those soured dreams, and those griefs just get buried.

With each burial you suppress your vulnerability (willingness to be ‘seen’ as is. No façade).

With each burial you lose your ability to feel as deeply again. Your friends, family, and lovers get less of your love and self-expression.

With each burial you cut the loving chords that establish closeness

With each burial you begin to fear intimacy (in-to-me-I-see). You do not share what is in your heart.

With each burial you lose touch with your internal life guidance system, gps.

With each burial an authentic part of you dies off.

With each burial you feel more alone. Your ONEness with others originates in your heart center.

With each burial you can only do what you have already done. Life expansion is squashed. Curiosity dies. Exploration ends. Self-expansion stops.

With each burial your seeking a better life withers away.

With each burial you build your walls higher and higher.

With each burial you lose a piece of you.

With each burial you put a foot into your own grave.

With each burial you justify becoming a part of the haze of normality. I consider this sort of a zombie-like state doing what you’re supposed to be doing, being as you are expected to be, doing what you have always done, and never heeding what is in your heart center to do and to become.

You become untethered from your soul because a closed heart prevents that deep connection.

It then hurts to be truly ‘seen’, to put yourself out there again. So, you don’t.

You are disabling your heart strengths. You lose touch with your inherent ability to love, to see a friend as they are, and you become less of a Light in this world.

What does this do to you the next time you feel that ‘falling in love’ feeling? You cannot fall into your heart to feel and express that love as deeply as you used to. You draw people into your life who also have shut off much of their creative self-expression which requires heart skills.

What does this do to you when you meet that possibly great friend? You do not call or answer him. You are unable to experience that part of your heart center. Its energies are clogged and stuck.

What does this do to that dream that has been whispering to you?

How does this hamper that informed yet risky move you know you need to make?

These are just some impacts of how an unhealed heart affects your life.

Dance like nobody’s watching; love like you’ve never been hurt. Sing like nobody’s listening; live like it’s heaven on earth.

~ Mark Twain

Expressions of love from your open heart

To feel what is in your heart is an expression of love.

To follow your internal life GPS is an expression of love.

To hang with a friend is an expression of love.

To make love is an expression of love.

To open up to romance is an expression of love.

To love fully like never before is an expression of love.

To follow your dreams is an expression of love.

To listen to your hunches, your intuition, is an expression of love.

To step outside your comfort zone seeking more and better is an expression of love.

You are unique

There is only one of you on this planet with all the specialness, gifts, quirks that you are.

This is your one life to find the gift that lies within your uniqueness and to be who you are.

To tap into the energy of love is a gift from Life that you are born with.

The energy of Love is your renewal, your rebirth, your infinite wellspring of wellbeing.

To express as love is to hug the world.

To live as an expression of love is who you are.

To shine the Light of Love through you shows others the way.

Your uniqueness is a gift to the world

You are unique just like each snowflake is unique. There will never be another person born like you nor has there ever been.

You are a unique slice of God’s expression on this planet. Lean into your differences. Your uniqueness is your piece of Life’s puzzle you bring to this life that the world needs.

Dare to give your love. TO BE it.

Be willing to love again beginning with yourself.

Heal and Heed the Man in the Mirror. This is the lady who wrote the song for Michael Jackson.

Dare to be you. Shed other’s expectations of who you should be.

Choose to define who you are.

Let the Love of Life show you the way by maintaining a pure connection to your heart center.

BEing the living, breathing expression of Love leads to you meeting the perfect mate or great friend or some fantastic opportunity.

Having done your healing, you will be available to say ‘YES’. You are willing.

You hold the golden key to your own heart. No one else has your master key.

Can You See the Unseen?

These images show the light that shines from us.

Description – This first image shows one of the test subjects in full light. Throughout the day, the body gives off weak emissions of visible light in totally dark conditions, as the color-coded middle image shows. The rightmost image of the subject, captured in infrared wavelengths, shows the heat emissions. ~ from Kyoto University/TIT

Article: Humans glow in visible light – https://www.nbcnews.com/id/wbna32090918

Why can’t we see it?

Our eyes see the world with limits. Light is measured on the electromagnetic spectrum. The range of 380 to 700 nanometers is visible light which is only 0.0035 percent of the spectrum. There is so much more to the world that we do not see than what we do see. *Source below

Infrared light exists but it takes special glasses to see it. It is a lower frequency than visible light.

At higher frequencies than visible light are ultraviolet light, X-rays, and gamma rays.

I have seen humans glow

In my classes, sessions, and spiritual communities I have met many people who see auras, scientifically now known as human glow; just saying.

First time for me. I was volunteering for a workshop and intensely focused on a former mentor and workshop leader, Wilbert Alix, while he was talking about a particular subject. It was like I tuned everything else out and was energetically laser focused on his face, voice, and energies. Suddenly I saw a glow around him. I do not recall the color, yet. It stayed there until I got into my mind about ‘wow, I just saw his aura’. That pulled me out of the intense focus.

Years later I saw it a few more times around certain people but I could not yet see it when I chose to.

Once I was strongly guided to begin doing P.E.A.C.E. Sessions I began to feel the energy coming off a person. This energy would guide me as to what to clear and what to strengthen and empower.

I had a surprise in the first session. I did the opening things I do to tune into my guidance and moved to my friend, Monika, on a massage table. I am totally guided by the knowing intelligence in these sessions. It is the most I can ultimately let go of EVERYTHING. I closed my eyes to sense where to go with her energy.

I actually saw the shape of the energies all over her body. Some were weak. Some were stronger. Some had dings. Some was actually closed off. I ended up pulling out what I called ‘threads of discontent’ from her back. Afterwards she said she had fibromyalgia and her back was as relaxed as it was before that affliction. I knew her personally and she confirmed that never came back. I do not see full color, yet. It is more like shades of gray light.

That happens in every session. I get to verify my guidance when talking with the client afterwards. Though their eyes were closed they knew where I was working and tell me about what they felt during that. It matches with what I was picking up on and perceiving.

But we can see the human glow

Once you have become comfortable with meditation, visualization, insights, and self-awareness there are certain inner powers that come forth. For me, I found a way to see the unseen by meditating deeply to get in alignment with my unseen self and the All One, so to speak. Thus the spectrum of visible light is expanded when we are using your inner eyesight.

Spirit? Life? Purpose? Light?

I go to YouTube sometimes to just peruse and see what intrigues me.

At times, I like watching singing competitions to witness that moment when a really good singer ‘gets it’ within themselves that they have a real talent. They just broke out of a too-small life box. I find some of those cause goose pimples (why is it called that?), bring a tear, or some reaction indicating it’s a Real Moment. I think of Real Moments as unmasked, authentic, and intimate moments where the person is standing in the strength that comes from being vulnerable.

To put it spiritually, it is when I get to witness someone’s Inner Light turn on. They’ve found their groove. It is awesome when, in class or a coaching session, I get to witness someone ‘get it’. They have just expanded their field of possibilities and felt their own inner power.

It’s like a spark that is momentary. Maybe it is when that person opens their inner door to a new awakening.

To the matter at hand…

At times on YouTube, I want to learn or be reminded of something deeper. Recently I came across Oprah interviewing Caroline Myss.

Intuition, Power and Grace – Super Soul Sunday

I found the sections marked below resonated with me and thought I’d share.

What is Spirit?
3:17 – 4:30

It’s the part of you that is seeking meaning and purpose.

The part of you that is drawn to hope and believes in goodness.

I will add what I believe, learned from a philosophy Science of Mind that the Spirit within you is the source for renewal of self. It is the pure unadulterated Life Force. It has never been hurt, damaged, or changed in anyway and can never be. It is the source for your life GPS.

I remind myself that this Life Force, Spirit is within me, around me, and as me. It is what connects me to ONEness of Life. From this sort of template for my best life and my best self, I can cause a renewal in my mind, my heart, my belief, myself to grow into My Self, my life, my health (and others), .

In a spiritual mind treatment that I do for people, I call upon this Life Force to come through this template of whole, perfect and complete to cause change.

The physical world is nothing more than our classroom.
4:36-6:58

Will you make choices that enhance your spirit or drain your power?

Each of your choices will enhance your spirit or it will drain your spirit.

You’ve blocked your spirit…

If you have life, you have purpose.
6:59-17:16

Each of us is born with a purpose for being alive.

Each of us has a Sacred Contract which is a spiritual document that our soul recognizes.

My adlib: You cannot understand this using logic. This is a soul level knowing that we sense, we hear it’s whisper, we feel its nudge. Sometimes we are lucky enough to meet someone who knows us at that level. I was fortunate once for that soul level friend. He made a notable difference in my life.

The more we cling to living a predetermined logical life, a familial acceptable version of us, the more distant is its voice. This is intelligence from the Life Force that is dialed into our GPS. We have to develop a trust of our inner spirit to listen to it.

The mistake most of  us make is to use our logical mind to judge it out of our field of possibilities. It’s too scary. Fear of change will make us stay in unfulfilling relationships and barely livable situations. It’s not acceptable to my family and friends. It doesn’t make sense. All of these are examples of how the ego, the consciousness from our logical mind, will give us any thought, feeling, fear, memory, other to stop us from changing.

There is a way to cut through that mental never-ending do-loop of thoughts that trap our creative freedom of expression. Sit somewhere and take some deep breaths to relax. Now breathe into your heart center. Now breathe into your soul; imagine doing it. Stay there for some moments. Ask it what is good for you. Listen for the whisper, the nudge, the inkling of an idea.

Now, back to the program…

It is a big deal in life and just takes some inner learning to clear the communication channel between your soul and your mind and heart awareness.

One atom is as purposeful as our planet.

Have no judgments, no expectations, and give up the need to know what happens tomorrow. Whoa!

Be fully present and fully appreciate what you have now.

My adlib: This is such an important skill to develop for yourself. I often remind myself that the best state to be in is grateful and joyful. Many systems say this is the place to receive your good, to receive the goals you have set, to have what you have asked Life for.

What if that awful thing that happened in your life was actually the best thing that happened in your life?

Maybe you didn’t get what your prayed for or set as a goal because it would have turned out bad for you. God/Spirit/Life was protecting you.

When Caroline is talking about God, she refers to the Essence of Life, the Force for Good that causes life, Spirit, Universe. This actually aligns with my spiritual philosophy…from the Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes. This is an empowering philosophy of Universal Laws and how to work with them.

Therefore, she says God is Law. This is order in life and it runs in accordance with the unseen, yet repeatable, spiritual laws that cause life.
