Yoga And Meditation Retreat - Give Away!

If you have heard about the yoga/meditation retreat I am hosting in Cedar City Utah in June and have been wishing you could be there, you can. It's up to you to make it happen, but you CAN come if you choose.

I know this to be true. I will show you  how it is done. I challenge you to do one of the following.

If it is an issue of money, tell God that you really want to go to this retreat because it is more than a get-away but a spiritual rebirthing kind of experience that benefit everyone in your family and many you know. Then ask the Lord to send you the exact dollar amount you need. Then do the prosperity meditation every day for 3-11 minutes, and every time you think about the retreat, say "Thank you for sending me the exact amount of money. Praise to the Lord!" Do this before the money even shows up.

If it is an issue of distance, pray that the Lord will make the distance shorter. There is a passage in the Gospels where Jesus got on the boat and then just a few minutes later was on the other side of the sea. At our house we call it "God Speed." Nothing is impossible for the Lord. Whether it is a traveling companion to join you, or airline miles you didn't expect, or children who sleep the entire drive, He can make it work.

If it is an issue of family--maybe you don't want to leave young children. If this is the case, bring them. There are plenty of things in Cedar City to do that weekend. In fact, I have a whole list here. Your partner or a friend can take the children for a day and nursing babies can be brought in during breaks to nurse. There is an a camping area at the retreat for families, but spaces are filling up and it does cost extra, so please inquire about this soon. There are also many great off site locations where you can stay that are family friendly. Talk it over, and I challenge you to take a family trip!

If it is fear of not knowing anyone/meeting new people:  you might be surprised who you know or who you knew in heaven. We will make sure that you meet people, and if you choose, that you can also have plenty of free time alone.

If it is an issue of camping: you don't have to camp. Campsites are included with the retreat price, but you may choose to stay off site. A list of places is here. However, FYI, even people who aren't really campers will not find Sage Hills challenging. All meals will be catered, so that eliminates mess and no fires are aloud, so there is one other less mess. It will be warm enough but should not be too hot yet. I can't gaurantee the weather. And there are showers and hot tub available. So there you go. You decide.

If it is any other issue, and you are supposed to be there, the Lord will provide a way, or He will pester you until you register. Please meditate on it. (If it is because you don't like yoga and meditation, I am trying not to laugh too hard. You are not the first person who has told me that. :) And it's okay. Just being there may be all you need to do. 

And now, the moment you have all been reading for: I am offering a give-way. For one lucky person, this will be the way they get to the retreat. But actually, I don't believe in luck, I believe in persistence, generosity, and miracles, among other things. I have to be straight with you, this give-away is not a 100% giveaway. However, it is as near to it as a person who really wants to go can get. The giveaway is 60% off the retreat price, as well as a personal healing session with me while at the retreat. $125 value.

The current price to attend the retreat is $287 (this includes all catered meals and campsites), but the price goes up on June 1st to $307, so if money is not the issue, don't wait to see if you have won. Register NOW. If you win, I'll refund you 60% of what you paid, or if you choose to pass it on, I'll give it to the next in line. 

What do you have to do to win? There are several things that will get you entries into the drawing. Here are the things you can do.

Weapons of Peace

In the Book of Mormon, there is one passage that my husband swears is an error that was written on the gold plates and then the writer corrected himself. This error, he believes, is only more proof that the Book of Mormon was indeed written on metal plates. It is this passage from Alma 24: 

"And thus we see that they buried their weapons of peace, or they buried the weapons of war, for peace."

It could have been a self corrected error. But even if it is, it has got me thinking about the term weapons of peace and whether there are such things?

I believe there are.

In my experience doing energy work and having it done on me, I have realized that many metaphysical things have a very real impact on the physical world. FYI metaphysical means beyond or outside the physical. For example, a woman and her sister have an argument. A few weeks later one of the women comes to me with a sharp pain in her sternum. I test her or view her intuitively and discover a knife there. It is of course, not made of steel. It is made of energy. It is made of the hate and bitterness one sister threw at the other. The sister did not consciously throw a knife, but Satan turned that energy into a knife. And within minutes of casting it out or energetically removing it, she is no longer in pain.

So it makes sense to me that if Satan can turn negative energy into weapons and other sabotuers, that God has much more powerful energetic weapons of peace. They are made of love, and gratitude, humility and positive intent. Sometimes they look like weapons, like a flaming sword for example--but its purpose is protection.

Several months ago God gave me several gifts. One was a spiritual gift, the others were spiritual tools--or weapons of peace. They are not for me to share publicly, but they basically function by my using my mind or imagination. For example, let's say God gave me a spiritual sword, but I am only to use it with His permission. When the time comes to use it, I basically imagine, cutting the cords or chains or whatever it is He is directing me to do with it.

I know it seems kind of wild, but imagery, when people choose to use it and have faith in it, is how God heals people of cancer with guided imagery, and creates hypno-anesthesia for a mom in labor. It is a combination of imagination and faith. UCLA Medical School has done tons of studies on this with cancer patients. It's kind of amazing.

Recently someone accused me of being a fantasy addict. Yes. I am. However, they said it in an unkind way, and I could tell right away they were really just being a mouthpiece for the devil. The devil doesn't like me, and it's because I know and share that reality is not what we see here. In truth, scientists acknowledge that we see with our eyes less than 1% of reality.

I have been praying for many months now to "see things as they really are." And I have become very visionary. If you could see some of the things I have seen recently, they are nothing like what is being passed for reality around here.

My lovely friend shared this quote with me. It is from Betty Eadie's near death experience book, Embraced by the Light. She learned this in heaven. :)

Gifted people are able to use their imaginations to create new things; both wonderful and terrible. Some people come to this earth with their powers of imagination already well developed, and I saw that some of them misuse that power here. Some people use negative energy to create harmful things--items or words that can destroy. Others use their imaginations in positive ways, to the betterment of those around them. These people truly create joy and are blessed. There is a literal power in the creations of the mind. Thoughts are deeds.

I understood that life is lived most fully in the imagination--that, ironically, imagination is the key to reality.
I will be sharing more on this in the future and how I plan to help you heal the world through imagination.

Devils and Such

C.S. Lewis is my favorite superhero. I have had a secret crush for ages, and it just gets re-upped every few years. Lately it is because my daughter has been obsessed with the Chronicles of Narnia. 

I also love him because he finds unique ways of talking about things. For example, The Great Divorce—have you read it? It is an interesting parable/dream about heaven and hell.

I also love that Lewis found a way to talk about devils that is light hearted, and not full of doom and gloom. I am of course talking about The Screwtape Letters, which is a compilation of letters from one superior devil (Screwtape) to a youngish devil in training (Wormwood). They are brilliant and funny, yet you get the point of all the ways devils are working to lead you carefully down to hell. I wish I had read it years ago, and I believe it worth re-reading every year. 

Perhaps if I had, God wouldn’t have sent me to an unexpected crash course of Defense Against the Dark Arts. That is not just a class for good witches and wizards at Hogwarts, but apparently it is something that all Christians should know about, seeing as how it is one of the signs that follow those that believe.
“And athese signs shall follow them that believe—in my name shall they cast out bdevils; they shall speak with new tongues….they shall lay chands on the sick and they shall recover” (Mormon 9:24)

But do people really have devils and unclean spirits any more? And if so, why don’t we hear about it more?

The fact is, people do still have them, and it is talked about—maybe not they way I am about to talk about it, but it is mentioned all the time by prophets and apostles and in the scriptures everywhere, but we have been lulled away into a state of not noticing. Maybe now you will be paying attention. Joseph thought it is important, and in fact, he spent more time preaching the discerning of spirits than anything else.

Therefore, that we should waste and awear out our lives in bringing to light all the bhidden things of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven— These should then be attended to with great aearnestness. Let no man count them as small things; for there is much which lieth in futurity, pertaining to the saints, which depends upon these things.  (D&C 123:13-15)
Why don’t we take this stuff seriously? Because most of us have our own devil or two who are deceiving us into thinking that there are not such things or that we are too righteous to have that sort of problem.

Because I have been getting so many questions about this recently, I decided to do what Joseph Smith implored and bring some things to the light of my blog. So, I present to you some pertinent things that I have learned about darkness. I have learned this through various sources and experiences—my own, my loved ones, my clients, etc. I am not attempting to prove any of this, although I will site sources if I have them readily available. The important thing is for you to ponder and pray about all of it, especially if it is new to you.

I present it in bullet list form for efficiency and because I have not the wit of C.S. in these matters.
  • Possession, so called, is not often like you see it the Hollywood version. We learn from the scriptures that possession by can happen to everyone, including the apostles. In the Gospels you see that Christ reprimanded two of his apostles when they asked him if they could punish someone by calling down fire on them. "But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of." (Like 9:55)
  • Understanding works of darkness is important so that we can help ourselves and others and remain in possession of our free agency, to act and not be acted upon.
  • Many people are taught that darkness/devils can’t get in their bodies unless they invite it in. This is true. However, do you realize that this invitation is offered in many ways every day? You invite in dark spirits every time you sin against the light you have—when you break the commandments or the covenants you have made, when you get stirred up to anger or pride or you let yourself be swayed by fear. All of these choices remove or weaken the armor of God, or shield that would keep them out.
  • Dark spirits are of several different kinds: Devils, Demons, and Unclean Spirits
  • Devils are the fallen. The 1/3 of the host of heaven who rebelled and will never have bodies.
  • Demons are created by Satan and usually have a limited purpose or function. They can take on any shape or size.
  • Earth Bound Spirits are the spirits of people who have died. They have not left the earth for some reason. Sometimes it is because they are stuck and don’t know how to get out—other times it is because they chose not to go because of their addictions—they are the type called Unclean Spirits. They choose to stay and try fulfill their addictions through the bodies of people on earth. Addictions as varied as alcohol, pornography, sugar, adrenaline, contention, lying, being a victim, etc. This is well documented in the scripture and in thousands of near-death experience literature.
  • These spirits can enter our bodies through a weakness in our natural shield. It is at the top of the head—yogis call this the crown chakra or Tenth Gate.
  • Your natural shield is made up of your aura (most people know this as a kind of energy field around them) and your arcline (which is the halo that goes from ear to ear in a circle-- often depicted on saints in renaissance and other art.) This shield is weakened in various ways: The most obvious is drugs, alcohol, and other addictions and behavior that are contrary to the commandments of God.
  • A person’s arcline can also become weak or exposed from abuse, trauma, and mental illness, and even from too much empathy.
  • People with mental illness are especially vulnerable to “walk-ins” as I like to call them. Sometimes casting out these dark passengers alone will cure a mental illness, however, not always. There is usually additional healing that needs to take place, but if the devils come out, that healing is much faster! In more than 2/3 of the healings Christ did during his ministry, he cast out a devil first, and then healed. If a person has a mental illness, casting out all darkness regularly makes healing/management of the illness a lot easier. However, this is sometimes an ongoing battle unless you heal the beliefs and issues that keep inviting it in.
  • People in the helping or mental health field should educate themselves about this. If that is you, I recommend searching for the article by Ronald L. Poulton, “Understanding Spiritual Evil in the Context of Psychotherapy.”
  • These dark passengers know what they are doing. Their job is to cause pain and dis-ease and chaos in your life and in your body. Or they just feed their addictions and drain your energy.  In a talk at Jedediah Grant’s funeral, Brigham Young said this:
    “You never felt a pain and ache, or felt disagreeable, or uncomfortable in your bodies and minds, but what an evil spirit was present causing it. Do you realize that the ague, the fever, the chills, the sever pain in the head, the pleurisy, or any pain in the system, from the crown of the head to the soles of the feet, is put there by the devil? You do not realize this, do you? …the spirits that afflict us and plant disease in our bodies, pain in the system, and finally death, have control over us so far as the flesh is concerned.” (Journal of Discourses 4:133)
  • Here is an example of this from the scriptures: "So went Satan from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown." (Job 2:7)
  • Satan can cause illness and death, but only with permission from God. (Encyclopedia of Mormonism: “Devils” by Chauncey C. Riddle, 380, 381). Therefore, “it is an unhallowed principle to say that such and such have transgressed because they haven preyed upon by disease and death, for all flesh is subject to death; and the Savior has said, ‘Judge not lest ye be judged.” (Joseph Smith in HC 4:11.)
  • Often times when God permits this sickness and death it is to further someone’s spiritual growth, and I believe they have agreed to it all beforehand. However, they agreed to it because they knew it would help them grow much faster then without it. If you are struggling with dis-ease of some kind, the best way to meet these challenges is to seek personal revelation about how to use it for growth, and praise God. If we get angry about disease and death, we often don't grow. Yet when we praise God, things have a way of working out.
  • Sometimes Demons will come and give a big show and try to choke someone in the middle of the night or hold them down. I think most everyone has had an experience like this. This is to create fear and terror and while terrifying, is also somewhat theatrical in my opinion. It has the added bonus of convincing people that this is how evil will always appear, and if this is not happening, you must be in the clear. In truth, their presence is often much more crafty and subtle. They don’t want you to know they are there, because then you might get rid of them. They will stay in you as long as they possibly can.
  • As far as I know they can jump from person to person if the other person has an opening and they are cast out. Unclean spirits will sometimes transfer owners, however, from what I can tell, devils will stay and not leave until forced.
  • Many people have dark passengers unawares for years and don’t even know it. I have know people to hold important community and church callings, who inspire and serve others, all while having a dark spirit along for the ride.
  • Because of the unexpected schooling I got in defense against the dark arts, I can now discern them very quickly. Nearly everyone has one. Some people have many. And yet they are often still good people. But I see how the devils influence them. Most often they will stir people up to anger, interfere with their forming or keeping healthy relationships, and interfere as much as possible in their ability to/desire to have children. Sometimes they stir women up into angry feminists—nothing against feminism, where it does good. I'm not sure if there are female devils. Some sources say no, that only males were among the 1/3. But if there were, they'd be pretty mad about the creation of life.
  • These spirits also have other tools they use on us and in us… fiery darts, chains, flaxen cords, spiritual shunts, curses, etc. They aren’t metaphors; they are energetic weapons that get lodged in your energy field. Energy healers see/deal with these all the time. I was shocked the first time I found one. It was an energetic knife in my uterus, and it caused a miscarriage, as well as other pain. It is good to learn how to discern these too and learn how to cast them out so they don’t drain your energy either.
  • These dark spirits can cause or exaggerate our propensity for addictions.
  • They can cause us to do things we would never otherwise imagine doing.
  • If you are confused about gender—you could have an unclean of the opposite gender attached to you. I see it all the time. Or rather, I discern it.
  • There are several ways to get rid of these spirits and all their garbage. But the best and fastest and easiest way is to use the name of Christ. Anyone with the intention can do it by using the name of Christ and command them to go. i.e. “In the name of Jesus Christ, I command all devils, demons, and earthbound spirits of any kind to go back to where they came from/far from here/etc” If you do this, they must go. It is a law.  However, if you haven’t already changed  or repented of the behavior that allowed them, if in fact, this was what invited them in, then they are lightly to come right back. If you are working on repenting or healing, whatever the case may be, keep doing this regularly till you have a strong natural shield again. 
  • You do not have to have the priesthood to command devils to go. Orson Pratt said: “In my name shall they cast out devils, … they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover… It seems that the gifts her named are general gifts, intended more or less for the whole Church; not only for those in the Priesthood, but for those out of the Priesthood, for males and for females.” (Journal of Discourses, 16:289)
  • I have heard people say that you must have the priesthood to command certain types to go, but I don’t know if that is doctrinally sound. If there is priesthood handy, then please invite them to use it. However, if they are not handy or won’t help for whatever reason, all women who have been endowed have the power of the priesthood “upon them” and their posterity. So if there is no one around to do it or willing to do it, I say follow Joseph Smith’s advice and let it roll on.
“No matter who believeth, these signs, such as healing the sick, casting out devils, etc., should follow all that believe, whether male or female… If the sisters should have faith to heal the sick, let all hold their tongues, and let everything roll on.” – Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith 

  • You do not have to be “worthy” to command them to go. You must only believe and use the name of Christ. It is a law. However, if you are knowingly not keeping God’s commandments, or have something unresolved from the past, in order to get lasting relief, you should take a self inventory and bring yourself into integrity with the light you have been given.   
  • If you can’t get rid of darkness in the manner described above, you may have to use fasting and prayers. As Christ taught, some devils only come out through prayer and fasting.
And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and afasting. Mark 9: 28-29
  • In general, you can’t cast out a devil for anyone else without their permission, because it usually through their agency that they let it in. However there are lot of exceptions to this. Including: If it is your own child under eight, if the person is unconscious or too ill or not in their right mind to do it themselves. In this case, the faith of friends is required. Pray about this and how to go about it if you feel you need to.
“If in case of healing and casting out devils, etc., it happens that the receiver has no command of his own mind, as in cases of persons swooned, fainted, deranged or dead, then the faith of the administrator alone, or in connection with other friends and agents, in his behalf, is sufficient to do the work.” – Parley P. Pratt, Key to the Science of Theology, 110 see Lectures on Faith 1:18, 24
  • Devils can be cast out for others at a distance. (See Mark 7:25-29)
  • As mentioned above, children can have devils, demons, etc. And in fact Christ casts out several devils from children and or adults who had them since they were children.
“ And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came into him? And he said, Of a child. And oft times it has cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do anything, have compassion on us, and help us.”  (Mark 9: 21-29)
The Strong Concordance shows that the word translated as child in that verse is a word that also means infant.
  • I know, I know, in the LDS church we believe a child is innocent till age eight. So how can this be? It is true children are considered innocent. But not factually innocent. We actually believe that they are not “held accountable” for their sins till age eight. A 7-year old is not factually innocent if they commit murder, but in God’s eyes, they are not held accountable—the parents are. So yes children get possessed all the time and it’s largely because of what their parents do/how they treat them—that is why it is so important to raise our children in light and truth. [quote from Parley]
  • If a pregnant woman has a dark spirit(s) enter her body, or already in her body at time of conception, the spirits may go into the womb and, at best, scare her baby and at worst, go into the baby’s body. (I know it is terribly unfair, but I have several professional experiences with this. Parent’s choices affect the child before they are even born.) This influence on the baby can make labor difficult. Baby may not want to come our or will do so fighting and inflicting pain. You can read stories from people who remember being in the womb at www.theyremember.org
  • As I mentioned each person has two energetic bodies that are a natural shield—the aura and the arcline. I also mentioned some ways it can get holes. There are other ways too—for example, beings stirred up to anger, pride or fear. To be clear, I don’t believe feeling angry is a sin—not the first little signs of anger—they are just emotions that are a wake up call to the fact that something is wrong. That’s when we ask ourselves what it is. What it really is. If we let it get out of control, however, that’s when our shield goes down and we become susceptible to fallen and wayward spirits.
  • These spirits know how to push our buttons to stir us up to anger. They will sometimes stir our kids or family members up in the way they know pushes our buttons. They get both or all of us. They like to work on mothers because they set the tone for the house. They like to work on fathers because how they treat mothers affects that… and on and on. It is not pleasant to get caught in this cycle, but if you can step back and see it for what it is, it’s really kind of funny. I now recognize when they are trying to “hook” me and I laugh at them. Don’t get hooked in. If you do. Re-turn immediately to God.
  • The best shield is living the gospel exactly, and being like Christ. There are many conference talks on this. Here is one: The Great Imitator by James E Faust. He specifically mentions sheilding. Here is an awesome one by Elder Holland that mentions unclean spirits: Safety For the Soul.
  • This scripture about putting on the armor of God, which appears in both Ephesians and the Doctrine and Covenants is one that we often don’t think of as literal—but it is. We need that armor and shield.
“Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph 6:11-18 

  • Pray for the gift of discernment. It is like the iron rod. Here are two quotes on this:
We can develop the ability to discern what spirit is influencing others and ourselves. We should seek and pray for this gift lest we deceived. The gift of discernment is like the iron rod; it will keep us on the path toward the tree of life, which means eternal life. This gift is of significant value in determining personal direction administering in God’s service.” – Elder Robert D. Hales “Gifts of the Spirit” speeches.byu.edu

“The gift of discerning of spirits not only gives men and women who have it the power to discern the spirit which  with which other may be possessed or influenced, but it give them the power to discern the spirit which influences themselves. They are able to detect a false spirit and also to know when the Spirit of God reigns within them… Possessing and exercising this gift they will not allow any evil influence to enter into their hearts… They will repel it: and if perchance such a spirit should get possession of the, as soon as they witness its effects they will expel it or, in other words, refuse to be led or prompted by it.” Gospel Truth: Discourses and Writings of President George Q Cannon 1:198-99

  • You can also ask Christ to shield you, especially if you are having possession problems not from unrighteousness but from trauma and abuse or too much compassion. You can create a shield; or rather co-create it with Christ. After you cast everything dark out, every morning say your prayers and ask Him to shield you. Imagine this shield. If you create it in your mind in the name of Jesus Christ it will become real, even though you cannot see it. You can also ask to shield your family, with their permission and your house all the way to the property line. Then read the scriptures often and meditate.  
  • There is a wonderful Kundalini Yoga Meditation for rebuilding the arcline that is only 11 minutes/day. People see amazing results with it after just a few weeks. It will not only keep out the unwanted, but will cure panic attacks and many other anxiety related disorders. I will post a video on this soon. If you know nothing about Kundalini Yoga, I suggest you learn. My introductory e-book Kundalini Yoga Meditation Explained For Mormons is free for newsletter subscribers. You can subscribe here, or buy it for 99 cents on Amazon Kindle.  

If this is the first time you have heard anything like this you may be a bit skeptical, shocked, and maybe unsure. However, now that you are aware you’ll find your second witnesses out there if you listen. If you think I’m crazy, you are probably being deceived by the darkness that is in you. There is no one more adamant about their non-existence than the devils themselves.

But after sharing all the above I have to end with the most important thing:

 “We cannot fill ourselves with light by concentrating on removing darkness, any more than we can fill a container by concentrating on its emptiness. We only fill our vessels by brining light into us to replace the darkness.” (B. Grant Bishop, The LDS Gospel of Light, 140)

Or in C.S. Lewis’s brilliant words:

“There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence, and the other is to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them.”

So don’t be afraid—they feed on fear. And focus instead on adding light and changing the belief systems and healing the trauma that keeps letting them in. The best way to do this is through reading the scriptures and prayer and temple work and MEDITATION. Did I just capitalize that? Yes I did. Meditation increases our vibration so that we are more like Christ. Everything is vibrating, but at what frequency? Anything that increases that frequency is going to fill you with light and joy.

If you think talking about vibration is new age language, check out this quote from President David O. McKay, prophet from the 50’s and huge champion of meditation:
“Prayer is the pulsation of a yearning, loving heart in tune with the Infinite. It is a message of the soul sent directly to a loving Father. The language is not mere words but spirit vibrations.” (Treasures of Life, 308)

Here are some other things that you can do to increase your vibration and add light, in addition to all mentioned above (temple, prayer, scriptures, armor of god, meditation etc.):

  • A kind and gentle sense of humor. The devil does not have a sense of humor. But God does. And so does Aslan, if you have read the Chronicles of Narnia.
  • Plants and the gifts they give us, such as essential oils and flower essences. Essential oils vibrate so high that the devils can’t bear to be around them. They can be a shield. Frankincense is one of the highest vibrations out there. Why do you think it was mentioned so often in the Bible and was such a precious gift given to Jesus? 
  • Certain gems and crystals and rocks also emit a high vibration. They are also pretty.
  • Enjoying other lovely things, like birds and nature, and light.
  • Loving pets. Most pets give love unconditionally.
  • Some Music - Mantras, hymns, happy songs. You will know by how you feel.
  • Gratitude.
  • Love. 
  • Forgiveness! The Atonement.
  • Praise. Praising God for everything even awful things, is the highest vibration you can have. Darkness will flee from you when you praise God. Did I mention that all mantras are a form of praising God? There seems to be a theme here. Meditation! Scriptures! Prayer!

The E-Book Is Finished

For those who have long awaited my e-book Kundalini Yoga Meditation Explained For Mormons, it is here, in PDF format, free for all my  newsletter subscribers. If you are not a newsletter subscriber, subscribe now. If you are of some other faith or just curious, you are also welcome to enjoy it.

The other day I thought, jokingly that I should write another one called Mormonism Explained For Yogis. Ha!  I thought it was funny. Who knows. It could happen. Right now the thing I realized from writing this introductory e-book is that there was so much more I could have written. I thought it would be a short e-book--maybe 10 pages. It is 25 pages. Full of great information, but also just barely scratching the surface. So I guess I will be writing a longer book next. We shall see.

Please share it with anyone you want. Or use it to explain to others why you chant mantras and love it.

Sat Nam!

Chain Breaking Part 2

I wrote a part 2 to my earlier Chainbreaking post. I posted it on my other blog. In case you missed it, here is an excerpt to

....Many people with chronic illness or dis-ease have a problem on this level. And of course, if it goes on long enough will affect all the other levels.

“Rather than a genetic inheritance of a physical weakness, it is an energetic legacy of an injustice which the family never dealt….The range of issues that can be the source of the energetic legacy is vast, but it usually involves a family member who was excluded in a previous generation. When the other family members don’t go through the deep process of grieving the excluded one, whether the exclusion results from separation, death, alienation or ostracism, the psychic interference of that exclusion is passed on.”

Here is a condensed example: A woman has asthma since she was 2 years old. Dr. K discovers it is a problem on the intuitive level. They find out that the woman’s mother lost a sibling at age 2. The baby died and was buried behind the house in an unmarked grave and never discussed again in the family. The next baby was given the same name, as if the first had never existed, or worse, been replaced. This kind of exclusion violates a basic principle and that is that everyone in a family has a right to belong.

When the woman discovers this, they do some therapy (basically a hypnotic journey where the woman speaks to her dead mother’s sibling and acknowledges her, tells her she loves her and brings her back into the family and into her heart.) The woman’s asthma is 60% better after this intervention. A few months later, she completes the process by putting a grave stone at the property the family still owned. Her asthma then was completely gone and it has been more than eight years.....
 It gets even more exciting when I discover the source of my chains. You can read the rest here.

Doing Things His Way

While I was away for four months, I didn't work much at all. I saw a few clients and did a few live Q&A sessions for my pre-recorded meditation class. It was a great time to refocus and think about how I want to incorporate all the lessons I have learned as well as my increased spiritual and intuitive powers into my practice.

I have had a private hypnotherapy practice in Los Angeles for almost 3 years. I have seen every kind of client in every kind of capacity you could imagine and some you couldn't. I have loved it. They loved me. I also taught at the college of hypnosis. But now I realize that I am shifting to a more spiritual counseling kind of mode. While I have always been Christ-centered, I decided to change all my marketing materials to reflect that I do Christ-centered hypnotherapy and energy healing. It is Tree of Life Hypnosis after all. I am still open to seeing all types of people, but I just can't be quiet anymore about who is the source of all healing.

One other thing I realized is that I don't need clients. They need me. And while I love to help them, my family comes first. When we picked up and left last December for a few months I started a homeschooling adventure with my daughter. I'll admit I didn't want to home educate. But the inspiration kept coming. Now that we are back, the thought of putting her back in school doesn't feel right. At least not for another year. So that means that using my home office gets more complicated. And I gave up my valley office. I could get it back, but I don't want to. I decided that from now on I will only see clients by phone and Skype. That way, everyone wins. Clients don't have to drive. And I don't have to get on anyone's case about putting away their toys or artistic explosions and leaving the house every time I have clients coming.

Also, I am seriously considering requiring everyone who wants as session with me to complete a 40-day meditation first. Unless it is an emergency, or for a child. I have found that when people start meditating, lots of thier issues go away, and when we do work together, the positive changes are so much faster and more lasting. And even if it is the child who needs healing, often if one or both parents begin meditating, the child magically get's better.

I was contemplating all this at the end of March as we drove to Arizona to visit Lani. Then in gereral conference, one of the talks was about doing things His [Christ's] way. It was a nice second witness.

So since I have been home. Here are just a few of the changes I made: I took all these things off the wall.

And I put up my circle ancestor chart again.

I also have a big stack of books and notes all around that I am not going to show you because it's a mess. But I love that I don't have to put it away in the middle of what I'm working on. Yay.

If you want to know--one of the things I am working on is a series of trainings for people in the traditional mental health care field (talk therapists, social workers, MDs) who are open to learning hypnotic techniques and energy healing and meditation protocols that can help their clients much faster than talk therapy. The reason I feel inspired to do this is because many people who need help can't afford anything unless their insurance pays for it. Only therapists that are licensed by the state are covered by insurance. Insurance doesn't cover hypnotherapy, or intuitive healing unless that person is also licensed and has one of the titles listed above.

I am expensive. I do slide my fee when necessary, but I still cost money. I always say that I am not in this business for the money but I have to make money to stay in business. It's a sad fact. It is also a sad fact that many well intentioned therapists don't actually have the tools to help people through certain kinds of trauma and dysfunction. Some do--hoorray for that. But many don't. So I'm teaching them. And they love it! Therapists are often stressed out too, and they love to relax and learn ways to heal faster. They are some of my best clients. I love them. I don't know more than them, I just know different stuff. We are all learning together.

I have already taught some introductory crash courses on hypnosis and hypnotic techniques here in LA to a group of 45 therapists and I'll be doing some seminars in Utah in June. Or maybe I'll be doing them by Skype. :)

So it looks like I am moving more toward reaching large groups, but I will still do a wee bit of one-on-one healing. I'd miss it too much if I didn't. As my mentor told me, "You were born to do this."
