How do you approach releasing emotional pain in the most direct and efficient way?

18 Jan

As channeled from the Beings of Light Through Liesel.

“The most effective and efficient way to heal whatever pain is ‘trapped’ or ‘crystallized’ in the body at a cellular level is to allow it to ‘be’ when it emerges, to allow yourself to experience it, as opposed to attempting to push it back down.  However, it is very important to shine the light of your awareness on your mind and the narrative that your mind will almost inevitably begin to tell as the pain vibration comes to the fore.  The narrative is almost always spun in a way that adds to the pain that is already there.  If this narrative is believed as the absolute truth (as opposed to the very relative truth that it is, which is also one of many, many possible relative truths that could be given for the situation associated with the trapped pain), then, more pain is ‘seeded’ by this initial trapped pain.  Of course, the most absolute of truths is that only love exists and that you and everyone and every life form and everything ARE that love.  Almost always, the narrative and thoughts that emerge to accompany the trapped pain are quite far from this absolute truth. 

Think of healing past trapped emotional pain like trying to remove an invasive weed from your garden bed.  If you allow the weed to drop it’s seeds in the soil as you are removing it, then you will likely end up with more weeds seeded during the process of removing the original plant.  If you are very mindful that this is what the trapped pain will ‘want’ to do, then you can shine your light of awareness on it so that few, if any, seeds get dropped.  So, think of the seeds as narratives or thoughts that create further pain.  The most effective way to avoid dropping seeds is to not let the plant go to seed to begin with.  This would be allowing the pain to come up in such an intense state of awareness that there really is no accompanying narrative.  There is just awareness and acceptance of the vibrational field of the emotional pain.  This requires a very high level of Presence. For many of you, the momentum and energy unleashed when the pain arises will go into the mental body before you can shine your light of awareness on it.  So, if the narrative is already ‘there’ when you notice the vibrational field of the emotional pain, then do not fight the narrative, but instead, observe it intently.   Remember that it is a story designed to strengthen the vibrational field of pain that has emerged.  All of the thoughts are the seeds of the weed.  You keep the seeds from germinating by observing them without fully believing in them.  In this way, you have become a kind of ‘gardening ninja’ that can so mindfully remove the weed (by allowing the trapped pain to bubble up to and be felt at the surface level of experience) while ensuring it does not take advantage of the opportunity to propagate itself.  Furthermore, once the trapped energy in the form of pain is allowed to come out of crystallization, then it takes on it’s truest form as part of the brilliant, loving energy of the One.  It then transmutes into a vibration of energy that adds to the depth and robustness of your awareness, thereby creating a positive feedback loop that will help brighten the light of awareness that you have available within you to shine on the next chunk of trapped pain when it emerges.  

Now, you may ask, ‘how do I release new emotional pain that I experience as a result of what is currently happening in life?’  If you are, indeed, asking this question, We would like you to pause with Us, and examine the assumptions inherent in the question itself, as they point to the root cause of your emotional pain.  Your emotional/psychological pain is not caused by what occurs in the external world, it is caused by your perception (or really your misperception) of what is actually occurring in the world, and most importantly, your misperception of what underlies that which is occurring.  Again, the most absolute of truths is that only love exists and that you and everyone and every life form and everything ARE that love, that cohesive, binding force that vibrates with joy, and is unchangeable.  Only the external physical shell or vessel that houses or contains this love essence energy can change.  If this Truth were deeply known by you at all times and in all situations, you would cease to experience emotional/psychological pain and you would experience, instead, the vibration of profound joy and peace that naturally emerges from the deepest awareness of this Truth.  You would experience yourself and everyone and every life form and everything as pure love and unity.  This is enlightenment.  You would also be in a state of true harmony and non-resistance to the ‘form level’ expression of life.  The notes of the symphony of form expression that life plays would neither be judged as ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ thus releasing you from the suffering inherent in duality.  To be deeply present in the present moment is to approach awareness of this absolute Truth and to approach enlightenment.

If you find yourself experiencing emotional pain as a ‘result’ of something that is currently happening in your life, realize the emotional pain you are experiencing hinges on your thoughts/beliefs about what is happening.  So, to return to Our gardening analogy, invasive seeds (thoughts) are drifting into your garden beds and quickly germinating into invasive weeds (emotional pain.) If the seeds drift in, however, you can keep them from germinating by not completely believing in them, by observing them.  If you do end up believing in those thoughts, you will experience their full blown energetic consequences within your body as emotional pain.  The seeds will have been allowed to germinate and thus will very rapidly grow into plants.  If this occurs, simply circle back to the first exercise of the “gardening ninja” so that you can help keep these weeds (the current emotional pain) from seeding even more weeds.

Some of you may have garden beds already overrun with these invasive weeds and seeds.  This was the case for Liesel in the past, and she could not manage all the weeds and seeds on her own, and she sought professional help for her severe anxiety and depression.  This may be needed for some of you as well.  Get the help of a mental health professional if you find yourself unable to care for your garden on your own.

Do know that no matter how overgrown your garden may appear and feel to you, there is always the energetic blue print of a Garden of Eden underlying it.  Hold this seed of Truth in your heart and allow it to take root and grow.” 

Always know Our love is truly with you, because Our love truly is you.

A Channeled Message from the Beings of Light Regarding the US Capitol Events

10 Jan

As channeled from the Beings of Light Through Liesel.

“If you find yourself struggling with thoughts and judgments of condemnation of your fellow human, Donald Trump, and also those fellow humans who acted out their belief in him at the Capitol building (just to be clear We are not referring to condemnation of actions taken by him or them, We are referring to condemnation of the essence of him and them as human beings), We have this to share:

Do not allow the ego to use these events as an opportunity to mount an internal insurrection against the Unity Consciousness arising within you by convincing you that those who act lovelessly are unlovable.  Not only are all beings lovable, more accurately, all beings ARE love. We would like to encourage you to remember that even the being that you call Donald Trump, contains within him the Spark of Light, and contains within him, at the deepest level, this same energy that We are that is now speaking through Liesel, and that is also within you and is also in all beings.  There is a tremendous amount of perception coming toward this individual called Donald Trump, and his ardent followers, that actually blocks him and them from the possibility of accessing this energy.  This ‘blocking’ can actually come from well-intentioned individuals, such as yourself because you perceive him and them not truly as fellow humans with souls, but rather, only as the conglomeration of the behaviors and thought-forms that Trump has given rise to and given voice to in your third-dimensional world.  By perceiving him and them solely as this collection of behaviors and thought forms, and not holding the possibility for the Spark of Light within him and them to arise, you actually help to create that which you desperately hope to avoid.  In this way, the magnified ego that is so vividly apparent within Donald Trump brings out the ego not only within many of his followers, but also within many of you. This is, ultimately (and this may not be fathomable to the human mind), a wonderful thing.  There is much that is being ‘drawn out’ in your world.  Just as a boil may come to the surface of the skin, or poison may be drawn out of a wound, the human collective mind is awash with many poisons which Spirit is currently attempting to draw out.  However, many of you forget this bigger picture and instead only focus on the poisons themselves.  Indeed, the very fact that these poisons are so prevalent in your world is positive evidence of the collective body of humanity purging these poisons from within itself.

If you perceive poisons within the world, realize that they cannot be remedied with adversarial energy.  The only antidote is love.  Adversarial energy always creates more of the very thing it opposes.  So, be very mindful of how you, yourself, maybe introducing poison into the world. 

If you perceive darkness in the world, do not fight the darkness, as the fight itself will inherently contain elements of the darkness.  Instead shine light intensely, bravely, and with relentless love. Create so much illumination around the pockets of darkness, that it is clear for all to see what those pockets are, and they will dissolve in the power of this glaring brilliance.  Also, allow for grace and forgiveness for yourself if you are temporarily overcome by the ego during this collective process of purging, and remember that to judge yourself is the same as to judge others, as there is really only the One.

And finally, a dear part of Us who you call Jesus has this to share:
‘I did not teach the people by rooting out the darkness within them.  I taught the people by seeing even the faintest spark of light within them and nurturing and fanning that spark, until they, themselves, could begin to perceive it and continue to stoke the fire from within.’ “

2021 Wisdom from the Beings of Light

4 Jan

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to my wife and soulmate, Liesel. (Yes, like the young woman in The Sound of Music.) Over the past year or so, and much to our surprise, Liesel has begun to channel. We have come to refer to the nonphysical beings/Unity Consciousness that she channels as the Beings of Light or BOL for short. They have made it clear to us that humanity is at an inflection point: we can continue down the road of judgment, separation, and fear, or we can evolve much more rapidly and with much less suffering by choosing nonjudgment, Unity Consciousness and love. The BOL wish to speak to us – as many of us as they can reach – in order to help us choose the path of love.

Here is the first message they wish to share:

Hello, Dear Beings of Which We Are, 

We wish to speak of the nuance between Us and “Liesel.” This separation that We imply through language is not really there; however, We find it to be a helpful convention of language. So, for instance, when We refer to “Liesel,” We mean her more personality-based self. We also do not wish to imply that she is not with Us now as We are speaking. She is actually still a part of That which is speaking, yet one could say that she is more in the background right now. Conversely, We are a part of her that is often in the background during her more day-to-day existence. We have chosen to use the pronouns “Us” and “We” when this deeper energy is speaking, and Liesel and Rob have come to call Us the “Beings of Light.” However, again, this is only a convention. This name and these pronouns hold no innate importance to us. They are only important to Us if they are useful in allowing the information We have to share both to emerge and to be assimilated. ​

So, We come more fully to the fore now, and Liesel “waits in the wings.” Currently, during some or even much of her day-to-day life, Liesel is in the foreground, and We are “waiting in the wings.” Of course, all humans would be most functional if their higher self, Presence, or Consciousness (or whatever you wish to call Us) were at the helm of the vehicle (the body) in every “now” moment. This is, in essence, full enlightenment. This is the journey that each of you is on by being incarnate. 

But do not focus on the destination of the journey, for if the destination is reached, the journey is no longer needed or in process, and the journey itself can be most beautiful and, indeed, adds to both the complexity and depth of the destination. Also, a focus on the destination and not the journey will ironically ensure that the destination always remains out of reach. Viewed from Our perspective, which is sideways to time, both the journey and the destination (the state of enlightenment) are occurring simultaneously. This is contradictory to the human mind, but We see you simultaneously both in the process of the journey and also in the fully-formed enlightened version [of yourself].

We wish for you—by you, We mean all humans—to be in contact and communion with, and in recognition of, the deep Truth that you are. It could be called Cohesion. Other words for this are Love, Presence, God, or Unity Consciousness. Yet, none of these words can encapsulate this Truth; they can only point to it. This deep Truth of Cohesion underlies all form. This Truth is the energetic substrate of all form, the energetic substrate on which your physical vessel, your incarnate version of yourself, is articulated.

We will give you another approximation in the form of an analogy. Think of the Earth and what you have come to know through science as the makeup of the Earth. At its innermost, core level, the Earth is molten, liquid magma. This liquid or magma is extremely rich in energy and has no innate form. It takes the form of whatever vessel or structure it flows through. 

So, at the core of the Earth is this liquid, molten “potentiality,” so to speak. This is similar to The One, Presence, The Universe, or God. (All of these, and many other names have been given to that which underlies form, but ultimately can never truly be named.) As the liquid magma yearns to express itself and moves up within the structures of the Earth toward the external surface, there are containers or places where it pools and remains as a kind of reservoir. These can be termed magma chambers. These reservoirs are generally thought of as being below the surface of the Earth, not physically visible at the surface. 

For the purpose of our analogy, these magma chambers can be thought of as individual souls. So, there is a lot of potential for misinterpretation of what a soul is and how it relates to The One or Unity Consciousness. Our best approximation is to say that a soul is a carved-out chamber where magma (Unity Consciousness) has pooled and flowed, one that is generally below the surface of form expression. 

So, as the magma makes its way up from the very core, from the very centralized place of Oneness, it comes into these containers, these vessels and structures that could be thought of as magma chambers, and for our purposes, also thought of as souls.

 Then, as the magma, the molten liquid Earth-essence, moves further toward the surface of the planet, it is articulated in structures that are referred to as geological phenomena like vents, volcanoes, calderas, and other things Liesel’s consciousness is not even familiar with. These structures that are on the surface can be thought of in our analogy as “lifetimes” or “incarnations.”

 These “incarnations” are fed most directly from the soul, the magma, that has pooled in the reservoir of the soul. But when followed back to their true source, they originate in the magma of The One. Furthermore, just as the magma is always flowing from the center of the Earth up to or near the surface through volcanoes, vents, and whatever geological phenomena allow the Earth to express itself, those physical structures are also simultaneously always being turned back under and inward toward the molten center for reassimilation into The One. This is the birth-death cycle that is seen at the level of form in your third-dimensional world.

 We are indeed excited to embark on this new journey with you. We long to continue sharing and communing with you as the miracle of life continues to unfold from the enfolded.

Always know Our love is truly with you, because Our love truly is you.

The Coronavirus

7 Apr

Recently, I had a channeling done for me personally about the coronavirus. Since so many of you have asked me what I know about the virus, I’ve decided to make the channeling available to all. You may read it below. The channeling has not been edited, so please excuse incorrect punctuation and excess verbiage. The channeled consciousness is a collective of ascended masters. Kathy, the person who channeled this, is available to do private channelings and can be reached at

Be well and stay safe.

With love, Rob

The coronavirus. What is the symbolism?

March 16, 2020

To Rob,

It is obvious in these last years that the shift in consciousness is upon the earth in a very big way. The rise within energies of light has brought about the scattering of those things that have been hidden within the darkness; the attempts at hiding the truth has been paramount within the lives of those who want to hold the status quo. The screaming untruths have been what one could call the protesting of this light that has entered every area of society, of religion, politics; calling forth equality within gender, race, sexuality and much much more. The shift within humanity from fear to love is what you are viewing and what you are also viewing are those things that humanity as a whole do NOT want thus leading them towards what it is they do want. A tipping point as destined was reached in November of 2019 and in accordance with the frequencies ‘scheduled’ to hit the earth the year, 2020 appeared. This was to be/is the time within time when the shift in consciousness from fear to love will be actualized as the vibration/frequency/energy is far far more powerful than the fear you are viewing. There are two things at work here as these two messages to mankind are what have held them in a position to maintain that fear within them cellularly as to say humanity has been of a specific fearful vibration that is collectively being pulled from their very cells. Firstly that great fear of death and secondly that universal fear of survival. Enter the coronavirus as it mirrors that anxiety of holding a fear of dying. It continues to talk of impending death even though the numbers do not reflect it, the message is clearly one of the greatest fears within the cells of mankind………….death. Secondly the virus is causing a worldwide panic in terms of a falling stock market that to many represent the death/elimination of their survival symbols; their jobs, their bank accounts, their 401Ks as it is causing a flush of fear within the word ‘MONEY’. In real terms it is a fear of the future. How will I survive without the guarantees of safety and security and the world is saying that there are no guarantees. How scary. And that’s the point to feel the scary, the fear as it is rising within the body and being released/transmuted into the calm and peace and expanse within the heart that love brings. The fear that is resonating with the human form and cells as is being brought forth collectively through the presentation of this virus is for its movement OUT of the body as the higher vibrations/frequencies of love begin to enter for it has already entered the earth and as such that created the timing for the bodies of mankind to correspond to the earth that they walk upon. Every human who entered the earth held within their body that same vibration that the earth herself held as the body is an extension of the earth. The body is simply what is animated by the soul/creator source energy. When the earth began this movement into 5D, what stood upon her (humanity) began to feel this push for the higher frequency of love and light but the fear fought heavily to maintain its position and now the fear cannot maintain as it is being reflected by this “Deadly Pandemic” that is changing everyone’s way of life and that is the point of it………… change humanity. Simply put 3D is fear and 5D is love. Love or the light has already come alive on the surface of the earth which includes her inhabitants that live upon her as it is their time to choose their destinies. Do they fight to maintain that fear that tells them things must not change or do they allow that love to come alive and forth into their lives. This is where free will is exercised. This vibration will not be stopped which tells you that love has arrived and it will fully support you if you surrender to it. We can see that far more than the majority do at this time as well we can tell you that a year from now the world will not be as before. Many will ‘come around’ after a very dark night of the soul experience just as many have as they then began assisting others. Many will fight to maintain a history that is just gone, no more to be relived and many others will not accept this new way of life and will succumb to the fear only to be rushed with love as they pass away and gain understanding. Some will return, others will assist from above so to speak.

Those as yourself, one called a lightworker have prepared for this moment all your life. This IS the time you came for; to stand in your light knowing that this fearful moment on earth is not yours. You are the observer of the situation as you perch yourself within the 5D position that has called you for so long. Oh you will bounce between worlds/dimensions as the fear is very strong and can be viewed and read of daily/hourly. But as you observe remember you came to anchor this light that is causing so much chaos as that is how this old world is breaking down but through the efforts and dedication to your own plan and destiny. Your research, observations and many acquaintances have brought you many remembrances of who you truly are but in this time you will feel the peace, the calm, the beauty and love within real emotion of who it is you are. You are a human being that is animated by the love of god/creative source as you ARE the animator and to know that is your graduation, your homecoming, your greatest of all design and desires, your dream come true to be alive and well, in peace and compassion at the greatest moment earth has ever known; to assist others to their memories at this time of consciousness shift, that shift from fear to love is beyond words as there are no 3D wording or explanations to be found.

This virus in purpose is to assist humanity to bring forth from within their bodies the fear that has lived there since the beginning of their time upon this land in all the forms that they have entered. To live without fear is to LIVE and that is what is taking place. There are those as yourself who will transmute the last vestiges of fear as you are of the awakened ones, there are those who will surrender and in a twinkling enter the state of compassion remembering ‘from somewhere’ that love wins out over fear. There are those that will come kicking and screaming to their declaration that they will accept love for fear is just too painful to maintain and many other scenarios will take place within the minds and bodies of the precious earthlings who are making this shift. Others will take their bodies of fear ‘off land’ and pass away. All is perfection and in 5D that is known.

Now the virus itself had an origin somewhere ‘other’ than what has been told. It’s original purpose was to bring about a vector that could be managed and maintained and utilized to control humanity. It was a very ‘high level’ plan as there were those with such power and wealth that had within this last decade seen the writing on the wall as to the awakening that was taking place and determined that this must end so their reasoning was to concoct this virus in a lab and hold it until such time as/that they could begin the manipulation and maintenance of their power for those that have ‘ruled the earth’ so to speak with their positions of power and wealth, these families that are known by name could not accept the demise of all that which they have ever known in terms of their god like system of belief in themselves. So as this virus was created to be held as a chip that they could bargain with, something happened and it became unleashed by someone of a scientific mind with no association nor affiliation with those who paid for this ‘project’, in fact for the most part he didn’t even know of its purpose simply working in tandem with other scientist getting paid handsomely. He projected it onto a piece of paper and took that paper out of the lab only to toss it and have someone, one other person touch it. Now he himself walked freely of symptoms as did the one who touched the paper and relayed it onto those who in plan began this spread. To even think this was a mistake is to maintain the mentality of ‘accidents happen’ but of course its purpose was as described to you, to begin a journey of the grand shift in consciousness that fear accelerates. So this story although seemingly fantastic is merely the manner in/of which the world began her movement into love and only in time will further facts come forth but it is not a dramatic experience rather it was one that could be called a mistake when in reality it was that one scientist who with an open heart began the process of this time in time when mankind enters into a new reality.

Now we would like to say one more thing to you and that is this: you are cherished by those of us and there are many who have loved you, guided you and observed your struggles and achievements with what you could envision as such great pride for never did you lose direction nor devotion to your most beautiful plan. Even in your darkest moment in this lifetime to date you held on, held steady and overcame those forces of fear that you carried within you. It really truly is time to celebrate even as you look outward and see this gripping fear all around for that is the signal that the time is here to elevate your memories into the knowing that all is perfection, there is no need to even feel that chill of death as that is washing from you. In fact you have lived death most of your life in fear of it. It is your time to begin to live in the rhapsody of your own music, your heart beating in the symphony of your life’s motions. It is your time to stand firmly in the love you are of and KNOW your life’s purpose, your life’s dream is upon you.


Suicide and Pre-birth Planning

5 Mar

In the Suicide chapter in my second book Your Soul’s Gift, I share the story of Carolyn, whose only child Cameron suicided shortly after he graduated from high school. Carolyn and I had a channeling session in which we spoke with Jeshua (Jesus). Jeshua began by telling us that suicide is never planned prior to birth as a certainty, but it is planned as a possibility or sometimes as a high probability, as was the case with Cameron. In other words, Cameron knew that he was taking on so much in this lifetime that a suicide was likely. He was willing to take that risk, and his loved ones agreed before birth to accept that risk as well.

One of the difficulties Cameron had while he in body was that chronic depression blocked his capacity to feel his love for his family. Jeshua tells us:

“While physically alive he could not feel his love for them anymore. When dead he realized the full extent of his love, and from the soul’s perspective this was a great breakthrough. The suicide forced change upon Cameron, and in his case it worked out well. It was a turning point for his soul.”

This is a radical yet powerfully healing perspective. Our society views suicide as perhaps the ultimate failure, and yet Jeshua tells us that from the soul’s perspective it can be a blessing. As souls our highest intention is to give and receive love. While in body Cameron was unable to feel, and therefore unable to express, the great love he held in his heart for his family. Now, in the nonphysical realm, he feels that love intensely, and for his soul that feeling is a triumph.

In addition to viewing suicide as a failure, we also tend to see it as a sin. Yet in the conversation with Carolyn, Jeshua tells us:

“From a spiritual perspective, there are no acts that are absolutely wrong or sinful. The deepest act of self-betrayal can lead someone into a state of inner clarity that may help forever. The darkest point may become the starting point for a new direction toward light. You see, spiritual evolution does not proceed in a linear fashion. It uses the polarities of light and dark to create dynamics and change.

In saying this I wish to take away the traditional judgment about suicide, that it is the gravest sin. God or Spirit does not feel that way. God has the greatest compassion for people who take their lives in despair. There is always help available for them on the other side. They are never abandoned.”

In the channeling session, we also spoke directly with Cameron, who confirmed that indeed he was not abandoned. Upon returning to spirit, he was greeted by loving guides, who nurtured and supported him through a process of emotional healing and through some very difficult conversations with Carolyn which occurred in her sleep state. Importantly, and contrary to what some religions teach, Cameron told us that he was never punished in any way for having taken his life. He did not go to some sort of “Hell,” nor did he wander endlessly in a limbo state. Instead, he briefly experienced some confusion and disorientation when he first crossed over (as he had been confused and disoriented when he suicided), but he quickly saw his guides, who escorted him “Home.”

And what of Carolyn’s healing? Since Carolyn has no memory of her pre-birth plan – just as most of us don’t – she quite naturally felt that she had failed Cameron. She was filled with guilt and self-blame, wondering what she could have done to prevent her son’s suicide. In response to those feelings, Jeshua shares with us one of the most important, startling, and powerful pieces of information I’ve come across in my research. He tells us, “Every suicide preventable by outside forces was indeed prevented.” What he means is that if the suicidal person has the slightest openness to changing their mind, the Universe knows, and the Universe stages an intervention. It could be something as simple as a bird flying by and distracting the person, or something as dramatic as an angel assuming human form and physically interceding. If you have lost a loved one to suicide, know this: There was literally nothing you could have done to save them.

You are not to blame.

You are not at fault.

You did not fail them.

Therein rests your healing. Therein lies your peace.

The Role of Gratitude in Your Life Plan

26 Aug

As those of you who have read either Your Soul’s Plan or Your Soul’s Gift know, the vast majority of what we plan prior to birth is planned not as a certainty, but rather as a possibility or probability. Whether a particular possibility or probability actualizes is determined by our free will decisions. In other words, the pre-birth planning we do creates what can be conceptualized as a vast, elaborate flow chart. What is a flow chart? It’s a series of decision points. If you do A, then X happens. If you do B, then Y happens. The plans we create before we come into body constitute a flow chart so immense as to be beyond human comprehension.

The timelines in the flow chart vary greatly in their degree of arduousness. The higher vibrational timelines have more happiness, peace, joy, abundance, and ease than the lower vibrational timelines, which contain much more suffering. One way to place yourself on higher vibrational timelines is to align with Love, which is your true nature. You can do this by asking in any (or every) moment, “What would Love do now?”

Another very powerful way to activate higher vibrational timelines is through the conscious use of gratitude. Before I explore how that works, I’ll first discuss the nature of suffering.

Suffering occurs when you resist something. The more you resist, the greater your suffering. When you resist a life challenge – let’s say one you planned before you were born – you’re giving a big, energetic “NO!” to the Universe. The Universe doesn’t understand that you intend to say no only to the challenge. Instead, the Universe takes your no as a global no: a no to abundance; a no to love; a no to physical health; a no to spiritual clarity, and so on. The Universe hears you saying no to all the blessings it wants to bring to you.

You’ve probably heard the expression, “When it rains, it pours.” This expression is a great description of someone in a state of resistance. At first something minor goes wrong (it begins to “rain”). The person then goes into a state of resistance to the “rain,” which gives an energetic “NO!” to the Universe. Blessings of all sorts then stop coming into the person’s experience and major things start to go wrong (it begins to “pour”). This is why it’s so very important to eliminate resistance.

Gratitude is a simple, easy, fast, and effective way to do that. The vibration of gratitude and the vibration of resistance are fundamentally incompatible frequencies. You cannot be in a state of gratitude and a state of resistance at one and the same time. So, if you’d like to stop saying “NO!” to everything you want, think of something – anything – that is positive in your life. Allow the feeling of gratitude to arise. The great thing about the conscious use of gratitude is that the gratitude does not have to be in regard to something big; rather, it can be for something as small as the sound of the birds chirping or the way the sun feels on your skin. This is why gratitude is a fast and easy tool to use.

The consistent, conscious use of gratitude will activate the higher vibrational timelines in your pre-birth plan. These are the timelines your soul hopes you will find, the timelines toward which your nonphysical guides and teachers are always steering you.

Mold Toxicity

29 Apr

I’m going to deviate from the topic of pre-birth planning – or am I? – to share a personal matter with you. For more than six years I’ve been dealing with a serious physical illness: mold toxicity. I would like to share my experience with you in the hope that it may be helpful to those of you who face mysterious, undiagnosed physical symptoms as I once did.

The onset was insidious, beginning with shorter, lighter, less restful sleep. I already knew that I had sleep apnea, so I purchased a CPAP machine . . . which did nothing to help me sleep better. Over time my sleep became worse and worse. Often I would wake up at 3 am and not be able to fall back asleep. When this happened several days in a row, as it frequently did, the fatigue was overwhelming.

Then neurologic symptoms developed. At first, it was a tingling sensation in my lower arms and legs and on occasion a feeling that my toes were on fire. Over a period of a few years, the tingling moved from my lower to my upper extremities. Then I noticed that I became short of breath much more easily.

Matters came to a head on a trip to New Zealand. After carrying two heavy suitcases up three flight of stairs, I was suddenly barely able to move or think. I sat immobile in a chair for hours, knowing that I had no energy for movement of any kind. Worse, my thought process slowed dramatically; I could scarcely plan what to do next. I later learned that this is what’s known as post-exertional malaise, a symptom of mold toxicity.

In the home in which my wife and I live, my office is on the lower level. There’s only one flight of stairs between levels. Things were so bad at one point that my wife and I had to plan when I was going to leave my office for the day . . . because I could only go back up the stairs once in a day!

It took over five years for the symptoms to progress in this manner. During that time period, I went from doctor to doctor, none of who were able to help me.
Initially, the most likely diagnoses were pre-diabetes or diabetes. I was worked up for those, and they were ruled out.

The next several most likely diagnoses were various autoimmune disorders. I was worked up for those, and they were ruled out. The doctor who evaluated me for the autoimmune disorders then dismissed my symptoms as due to “stress.”

The next several diagnoses were various neurologic disorders. I underwent testing – some of which was quite painful – for those, and they were ruled out.

The next most likely diagnosis was Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I had a Skype consult with an expert in CFS, Dr. Courtney Craig, a brilliant and very caring person. At the end of the hour, she said, “Well, you don’t have CFS, but you might want to look into mold toxicity. It presents in a similar way.” I thought, “Mold toxicity? No, it can’t be!” As it turned out, Dr. Craig was right. She literally saved my life; I doubt if I would have ever gotten to that diagnosis without her. You can reach her through her web site

After the call with Dr. Craig, I found an article online in which the author had surveyed many people with mold toxicity and asked them which doctor had helped the most. The ten physicians most often mentioned in the survey were profiled in this article. I showed the article to my wife, who got a strong intuitive hit regarding one of the physicians, Dr. Neil Nathan.

Dr. Nathan had me tested for mold toxicity. (The gold standard is a urine test from Real Times Labs.) I was strongly positive for all four types of mycotoxins (mold toxins) measured by the test. Within just a couple of weeks of starting treatment, I was dramatically (about 40%) better. Progress has been much slower since then, but Dr. Nathan and I are hopeful for a full recovery in another 2-3 years.

I view Dr. Nathan as one of the world’s leading experts on mold toxicity. He can be reached at His web site is I suggest you read his book Toxic. (The documentary Moldy is also a good resource.) Dr. Nathan estimates that as many as two million people in the US alone may have undiagnosed mold toxicity. Mold toxicity can cause many symptoms other than the ones I described, so please do your own research.

One last tidbit: drywall is a fertile breeding ground for mold. If you live in or have lived in a home with drywall, this is something to consider.

I hope that my experience may be of value to some of you. And, for those of you who have already successfully treated mold toxicity, I would like to hear any suggestions you care to offer. Please feel free to write to me at

The Pre-Birth Plan of The Fonz

29 Apr

Recently, I had the opportunity to hear Henry Winkler speak. For those unfamiliar with the name, Winkler played Arthur Fonzarelli (aka “The Fonz”) in the popular television show Happy Days, which was on the air here in the U.S. in the 1970s and 80s. Since then Winkler has gone on to star in, direct, and produce a variety of successful television shows and films.

Winkler spoke poignantly of his academic struggles early in life, when dyslexia made it difficult for him to learn. His parents, German immigrants, repeatedly called him dummer hund (dumb dog). Not surprisingly, he grew up believing he was stupid.

Although he’s experienced extraordinary success in television and film, Winkler said that his greatest accomplishment is a series of best-selling children’s books about Hank Zipzer, a fictional boy who also has dyslexia. With titles like Everybody is Somebody, the books have inspired countless children to believe in and value themselves and countless parents to believe in and value their children – regardless of their level of academic success.

As I listened to Winkler speak, it became clear to me that he had beautifully and magnificently fulfilled his pre-birth plan. Before we are born, each of us chooses a mission, some area of life on Earth that is important to us and in which we want to make a positive impact. I envisioned Winkler in his pre-birth planning session telling his guides, “I want to empower children who have learning disabilities. I want to help these children – and all children – know their inherent worth. And I want to help their parents know it, too.”

Having selected that mission, Winkler would then have planned to enter the very vibration he so wanted to change. Service to others – which is part of literally every pre-birth plan I have ever examined – is particularly powerful when we ourselves enter and experience a certain vibration and then transform it from within. I could hear Winkler’s guides saying, “One possibility is for you to have dyslexia and parents who shame you for it. If you can rise above the vibration of shame and come to know your worth, you will then offer that higher vibration, that wisdom, to others.”

At that point, Winkler would have gone to the two souls he wanted to be his parents and asked them to be part of his plan. “I want to empower and uplift children who have learning disabilities and their parents. I choose to experience dyslexia, as it will give me the opportunity and motivation to accomplish my mission. I ask that you shame me as a child for my inability to learn. My intention is to rise above the shame, heal it within myself, and then find an inspiring way to offer such healing and upliftment to others.”

The two souls approached by Winkler would likely be souls with whom he had shared many incarnations and with whom there was already great love. I could hear them responding, “Though it will be difficult for us, out of our great love for you we will play this role. We will speak the words that will drive you within, where you will discover your value as an expression of the Divine. We love you, and we agree to play the role you have requested.”

Winkler ended his talk by saying, “Thank you for listening to me, because my parents never did.” I suspect that his very natural and understandable human perspective will be replaced by a very different one when he returns to the other side and remembers just how well his parents did listen to him.

Perspectives on President Trump

17 Jan

I continue to receive questions from many of you about President Trump. The most common questions are “What is this all about?” and “How could this have happened?” Believe me, I understand the feelings that give rise to these questions. I’d like to offer a few more thoughts to put this experience in perspective.

As those of you who have read Your Soul’s Plan and Your Soul’s Gift know, I believe that many people have what I call a learning through opposites life plan. As souls, we learn best by experiencing the opposite of what we ultimately want. To take a common example, a soul who wants to deepen in compassion in the next lifetime will plan to incarnate in a family in which he or she will be treated with a profound lack of compassion. The absence of compassion in the external environment is intended to provide both the opportunity and motivation for that person to go within and cultivate self-compassion. Invariably, the life plan then calls for the person later in life to take the compassion that has thus far been offered only to self and turn it outward in service to (seeming) others. This component of service to others has been present in literally every pre-birth plan I have ever examined.

President Trump offers us a plethora of opposites to experience; I don’t have space to list all of them here. “Yes,” you may say, “but does this have to be done in such an extreme and intense way?” Understand: the Earth is going through an ascension process, moving relatively quickly through the fourth dimension and then into the fifth. This shift in vibration and consciousness is being catalyzed in part by President Trump. I believe he agreed – at our request – to play the role he’s playing for this very purpose. After this current lifetime ends and we see the big picture with greater clarity, we will be grateful to him for playing his part so well.

A fellow hypnotist shared the following story with me. While a client was in deep trance and channeling his Higher Self, the hypnotist, following the instructions his client had given him, asked this person’s Higher Self about President Trump. The client’s Higher Self then drew an analogy in which President Trump was pushing a wheelbarrow of manure and then dumping it on the ground. It doesn’t look good. It doesn’t smell good. Yet, out of the manure beautiful flowers can eventually grow.

Every pre-birth plan I have ever studied has been based on great wisdom and unconditional love. Let us trust in that. Let us trust that the beauty and magnificence of The Shift will be worth the pain of the catalyst.

The Healing Power of Acceptance

22 Oct

What do spiritual awakening, miscarriage, abortion, caregiving, having pets, abusive relationships, sexual orientation, adoption, poverty, suicide, and mental illness have in common? The answer is that all of them can be part of a life plan created by our souls before we are born.

Working with a team of mediums and channels, I explore the pre-birth planning of these and other life circumstances and experiences in my second book, Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born. In the sessions with the mediums and channels, we talk with people’s higher selves and spirit guides, “deceased” loved ones, and enlightened beings about the spiritual meaning and purpose of the major challenges we encounter in a life on Earth. Equally important, we discuss how one heals from painful experiences – and indeed, how the soul utilizes such experiences to catalyze healing.

How and why, then, do painful and even traumatic experiences come to be part of a pre-birth plan? Let’s discuss one way in which such experiences occur.

Almost all of us have had past lives in which we developed beliefs or feelings about ourselves that the soul knows to be untrue and therefore wishes to heal. Two of the most common false beliefs or feelings are that one is powerless and that one is unworthy or perhaps even worthless. A basic spiritual tenet is that there is no unexpressed consciousness. So, if either of these beliefs or feelings is within your consciousness, regardless of whether it is at the conscious, subconscious, or unconscious level, it will manifest in your life, sometimes in the form of a traumatic experience.

From our human vantage point, this may seem harsh or punitive. The Universe’s intention, however, is to mirror you to you so that any aspects of self that are in need of healing will be brought into the light of greater awareness, where you may then set about healing them. This is one of the fundamental purposes served by life in a physical dimension.

At the most basic level, the pre-birth contract is the same for everyone: embrace and transmute all discordant (unloving) energies, including beliefs or feelings that are untrue (and thus unloving) toward self. Energies we have not transmuted from any life will come to us in this life so that we may do so.

We all requested this opportunity before we were born; indeed, it was a prerequisite for birth into the physical realm at this time. This lifetime is therefore of primary importance in the cosmic calendar. We are here to integrate into the whole of our Being and in so doing heal the remnants of all unintegrated energies from all our lives, both physical and nonphysical.

When we resist any aspect of life, we resist healing, too. When there is a block in one direction, there is a block in every direction. Ultimately, then, the purpose of every life challenge is the same: to grant us the opportunity to embrace that which we have so far resisted. As well, every life challenge is healed in the same way: through an increase in the vibration of what we think, say, and do.

Our experience of life is not determined by our life plan but rather by how we respond to that plan. Our responses—our thoughts, words, and actions in every moment—create our experience and potentially our healing. As we heal and learn life’s underlying lessons in a conscious manner, challenges that were planned as potentials in our lives either never manifest or occur in a more gentle form.

It is here that an awareness of pre-birth planning is profoundly helpful and healing. When we understand that our souls planned our lives, then we know there is deep meaning and purpose to all that occurs. When we know there is deep meaning and purpose to all that occurs, it becomes infinitely easier for us to think, speak, and act in loving ways.

As we respond to life in loving ways, our previous resistance becomes acceptance, our acceptance turns into receptivity, our receptivity grows into embrace, and our embrace is transformed into gratitude for the experiences that open our hearts and expand us as souls.

You have embodied on Earth at this time to heal by awakening consciously to the memory of yourself as soul. Your healing comes and is completed when you see the light of your soul and know that light to be who you truly are.
