I was posed a question by email about my thoughts on Jesus and religion. He also was curious about why I claimed to be an Industrial Engineer but didn’t list more credentials than that and only used one name.

Here are my comments:

Hello Dear One:

Blessings to you for the insightful questions and what depths I had to reach within myself in order to find answers – for both of us.

I am an Industrial Engineer. Graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in 1987 with the name Debbie Shelor. I’ve worked for Fortune 100 companies in that capacity, as well as front line supervision, upper management, etc. I became completely disillusioned with the Corporate World. I made a poor manager. I cared way too much about those who worked for me. The last company I worked for cared only about the bottom line – it was pharmaceuticals after all. I had to compromise myself and my beliefs every day in order to “fit in” and do what was expected of me. I lost my joy in that job. So I left.

Jesus – or the Christ – was a grand and wonderful healer/teacher/friend. He was the way shower – “The Teacher of Righteousness.” And according to Anna, Grandmother of Jesus (a book I totally love), that means right use of energy.

Many light workers work with the Christ energy in healing sessions, in our daily meditation practice, and in our workshops. He is the “guiding light” for many of us. There are numerous fabulous books that describe our relationship with him vs. what is taught in many churches.

Most of us aren’t disillusioned with Jesus. We are disillusioned with what most Christian religions have done to the “truth” – the dogma, the fear, the distortion, and the disempowerment. Of course 2000 years is a very long time. Regardless of what is written in the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls, how can any of us truly know who he was and what he was really about? We can only feel him within our own heart. And in the end, that personal relationship is all that matters. It is fact that in 325 A.D. most of the bible was completely distorted. Constantine – who I’ve read was one of the cruelest rulers to ever walk the earth – had his group of advisors rewrite the Bible. They took out all reference to reincarnation. They left out anything mystical, which includes The Gospel of Thomas for example. He is also the one who began waging war in the name of God. How distorted is that? Anyway, the Bible is not the “truth” that it could be. Even with all the distortion, I find the words in the bible about what Jesus spoke, the parables, etc. to be very good guiding advice. I personally try to live by the Golden Rule and I teach that to my son.

If you would like to understand more of the Jesus I know, here are a list of my favorite books on the topic:

Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East by Baird Spalding (I prefer the first 3 books)

The Jesus Code by John Randolph Price

Many blessings,

Takara

We look forward to your comments. Please let us know who Jesus is to you.

Below are various emails I’ve received about how you can make a difference for those affected. They include a call for housing from MoveOn, a free service with MCI, and a very compelling article by Michael Moore. My latest newsletter (http://www.spiritofnature.org/latestnews.htm) includes a very intriguing article by Dr. Emoto which I have reprinted with permission.

This came in from MoveOn. This email message has already generated over 150,000 homes for those in need:

Hurricane Katrina’s toll on communities, homes and lives has devastated the nation. Now victims must face the daunting question of where to go next—and we can help.

Tens of thousands of newly homeless families are being bused to a stadium in Houston, where they may wait for weeks or months. At least 80,000 are competing for area shelters, and countless more are in motels, cars, or wherever they can stay out of the elements. The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Red Cross are scrambling to find shelter for the displaced.

This morning, we’ve launched an emergency national housing drive to connect your empty beds with hurricane victims who desperately need a place to wait out the storm. You can post your offer of housing (a spare room, extra bed, even a decent couch) and search for available housing online at:

http://www.hurricanehousing.org

Housing is most urgently needed within reasonable driving distance (about 300 miles) of the affected areas in the Southeast, especially New Orleans.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MCI LAUNCHES TOLL FREE SERVICE TO REUNITE LOVED ONES IMPACTED BY HURRICANE KATRINA

To assist those displaced and separated from loved ones by the effects of Hurricane Katrina, MCI has introduced a simple, toll-free phone service to help those impacted by the storm communicate their conditions and whereabouts to family and friends by simply using their 10 digit home phone number as an identifier.

The service allows displaced people and those attempting to locate the missing to connect through a toll-free phone number. The caller can choose to either:

Register themselves by calling 1-877-HELP-KAT (1-877-435-7528) or

Locate someone who is missing by calling 1-866-601-FIND (1-866-601-3463).

Registration function:

Those impacted will be prompted for their home phone number, month, day and year of birth (for individual identification) and a callback number where they can be reached. The service will notify the caller if they are the first to register the number or if someone else has already done so. If others have registered the number, the earlier registrant?s month, day and year of birth as well as callback number will be replayed, giving the caller the option to connect automatically to them.

The registrant will also be told if someone has previously searched for their number and will give them that caller?s birth month, day and year in addition to callback information with an option to connect.

Even if those displaced do not have a callback number to be reached at, they should still call and register because it will give their loved ones the basic peace of mind that they are alive. Impacted persons will be able to update their registration information with callback numbers when they become known.

For any 10-digit primary home phone number, up to nine callback numbers and birth month, day and year can be registered to accommodate alternate contact numbers and multiple family members.

Locator function:

Caller is prompted for home phone number of lost one.

Lost one?s callback number and birth month, day and year are played back.

The caller can then automatically connect to the lost one?s callback number.

The service will also notify the caller if the number they searched for has not yet been registered and allow them to enter their birth month, day and year and callback number to be replayed when and if the missing person?s phone number is registered.

The service supports English, French and Spanish and is limited to U.S. geographic customers only. This service is available to everyone, not just MCI customers.

From Michael Moore:

Friends,

There is much to be said and done about the manmade annihilation of New Orleans, caused NOT by a hurricane but by the very specific decisions made by the Bush administration in the past four and a half years. Do not listen to anyone who says we can discuss all this later. No, we can’t. Our country is in an immediate state of vulnerability. More hurricanes, wars, and other disasters are on the way, and a lazy bunch of self-satisfied lunatics are still running the show.

So, in the next few days, I will write to you about what must be done about Bush and Co.

But today I want you to join with me in bypassing the colossally inept and incompetent Bush administration and get help DIRECTLY to the people of the New Orleans area — right now.

A lot of you have written me to ask what you can do. Many don’t know who to trust. Many want to do more than write a check. You are right to think that writing checks to relief agencies will not get water and aid to people in the next 48 hours. Checks will be needed later and can be written later.

I have a way, though, for each and every one of us to do something today that can affect people’s lives TODAY.

For the past few days I’ve been working with a group that, I guarantee you, will get direct aid to the people who need it most.

Cindy Sheehan, the brave woman who dared to challenge Mr. Bush at his summer home, has now sent her Camp Casey from in front of Bush’s ranch to the outskirts of New Orleans. The Veterans for Peace have taken all the equipment and staff of volunteers and set up camp in Covington, Louisiana, on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. They are accepting materials and personally distributing them to those in need.

This is where we come in. We need to ship supplies to them immediately. Today they need the following:

Paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, baby diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, Pedialyte, baby items in general, powder, lotion, handy wipes, sterile gloves, electrolytes, LARGE cans of veggies, school supplies, and anything else to lift people’s spirits.

You can ship these items by following the instructions on VFPRoadTrips.org. Or you can deliver them there in person. The roads to Covington are open. Here’s how to get there. You can drop them off or you can stay and participate (if you stay, you’ll be camping so bring your own tent and gear and mosquito spray).

If you can’t ship these items or go there in person, then go to VFPRoadTrips.org and make an immediate donation through PayPal. Camp Casey-Covington will have immediate access to this cash and can buy the items themselves from stores that are open in Louisiana (all donations to Veterans for Peace, are tax deductible).

Each day I will post up-to-the minute information as to what is needed and the progress Camp Casey is making. Please visit MichaelMoore.com often and do what you can to help.

Many other groups are also doing good work. MoveOn.org has set up a system for people to offer rooms in their homes to the survivors.

There is no time to waste. People are suffering and dying. Each of us can do something. There is no other alternative.

Thank you in advance for your help. Tomorrow, we will take care of the other work we need to do about the ideologically hamstrung incompetents in charge.

Yours,

Michael Moore

At this time of year the malls are jammed with people and there is a santa on every corner. We are reminded to let those we love and care about know it. But that doesn’t have to be done by purchasing a gift.

Most people have more than enough “stuff.” And they are quickly running out of room to store all the “stuff” they have.

In this season of giving, let us look to those less fortunate. Instead of (or at least in addition to) the gifts you purchase for friends and family, send money where it can really make a difference.

There are starving children everywhere. There are people …

living with war, disease, and poverty where a little money can go a very long way. I think one of the greatest programs I’ve ever heard of gives a goat to a family in need. It provides them with much needed nutrition and allows them to sell the milk to earn an income. Such a tiny little thing can make a gigantic difference.

Our world is full of imbalance. If you are reading this, it means you know how to read and have access to a computer. You are one of the fortunate few. You are priviledged. You probably didn’t wake up hungry. You probably have a warm dry place to sleep. You most likely have indoor plumbing. And you very likely have a little extra cash that could be used in a good way.

This year, in addition to gifts, support organizations that you feel are making a positive difference in the world. You can visit http://www.networkforgood.org and learn about numerous organizations providing assistance in practically any area you feel is important.

If every town and every household in North America took the money they usually spend on fancy lights and electricity during the holiday season and gave that money to house and feed the homeless – even in their own cities – just think of the positive impact it would have.

I’ve been in and out of the multi-level/network marketing business since 1990. That is a long enough history to determine quite a few things about the industry – what works and what doesn’t – especially for me. Unfortunately, many of the lessons were learned the hard way.

Why is the industry so alluring?

Because, it allows ordinary people to gain access to residual income and business ownership. They can add a nice part-time income, of if they have what it takes, they can become wealthy beyond their wildest dreams.

That chasing your big dreams bit is one of the things I don’t like about the industry. At practically every business opportunity meeting they parade around people that have made enough money in the business to have fancy houses and cars, travel to exotic locations, and of course they have giant smiles on their faces. That wild dream thing is unrealistic. Very very few people attain it. It doesn’t mean you can’t. It means they are implying that everyone will succeed that largely and that is flat out false advertising. A select few will. Most won’t.

As an aside, …

I’ve had the pleasure of having friends that are top producers in MLM. They live in a fabulous house. They have a new Lexus. They travel and enjoy the finer pleasures in life. And they eat, sleep, and breathe the business. All night and all day the phone rings. Two people on two separate phone lines talking to prospects and business builders all day every day. Countless meetings, often every night of the week, with prospects. They hold big meetings several nights a week in hotel conference rooms – that cost alot of money. They are selling the products and the dream. They do well. But what I’m trying to enlighten you about is it is alot of work. If you really want to shift your finances, you have to be willing to work at it. You have to talk to lots of people. And when you get a no, you just go on to the next person, because it is a numbers game.

I’ve watched the big players in various companies – the one’s who earn over a million – and they have things in common. They are very charismatic. They have a charm and a polish about ther look. They are exceedingly good sales people – whether they were originally in sales or just have great passion for their product. They have absolute commitment to the product, the company, and the dream. They refuse to give up and they refuse to stop. They are like warriors on a mission to accomplish their goals. They are highly driven and motivated. They have no self esteem or worthiness issues.

There is one big exception to the above profile of a winner. If a person was severaly ill, especially if they had something the doctors said could not be cured, and through using a particular product were able to “miraculously” heal, they will have a giant business. They tell their story and products get sold. Their family will tell the story and products get sold. People who they introduce into the business tell the story and products get sold. It happens alot in this industry.

I didn’t mean to dash your dreams. I was just trying to help you be more realistic. Plan on a nice part-time income. That is fairly easy to do if you follow my advice below. Once you have attained that, then go after the rest once you see what it will take.

The best way to earn a nice income in the business is to stack the odds in your favor.

There are fundamentals that must be considered before you even look at a particular company or business. Here are the things that I’ve learned are absolutely essential for you to succeed.

1. A truly great product that everyone repeatedly needs and is easily understood.

That is primary. Without that, you are doomed to failure.

Most products are good, few are exceptional. You need an exceptional product. One that can’t be purchased at the supermarket. Something that is far and above everything else your customers, and especially business builders, will find in the marketplace.

If you are selling something that is a one time purchase, then you have to continuously seek out new customers. Now you want to continue to market your product and grow your business. But the whole beauty of the industry, and how it is designed, is that you can really build your business in the beginning and then reap the rewards of residual income for years to come. That requires that people continue to purchase the product or products month after month after month. So it has to be something that they use every day – nutritional supplements; energy beverages; skin, hair, or bath products.

One of the most important things that I’ve learned the hard way is how vitally important it is that the product be easily understood. How a person will benefit needs to be readily understood with very minimal explanation required. I’ve been in more than one of these businesses where you had to practically earn a PhD in order to do well. The product was foreign to the mainstream American consumer and they had to be educated. The fundamental problem is that it takes too long to explain it to each new person. You have all this time and energy invested in this prospect and when you get a no, it is very frustrating. People give up quickly when that happens again and again.

This also happens if there are too many choices. You have to learn about all of them and recommend the right one to your prospect. If they become a business builder, then they too have to learn about each one in order to recommend the right one to their prospects. The fewer the products the better. And starting everyone with the same flagship product is key.

You want to be able to talk less than 5 minutes and hand someone a brochure and/or CD. Or you want to be able to simply give them a link to a website that explains everything for you. A person needs to “get” the benefit to them and how the product will do that in 15 minutes or less.

2. Solid company – great leadership, great customer service, great marketing materials.

I’ve made the mistake more than once of getting so excited about the product that I forgot to look at the viability of the company. And more than once the company has folded, or gotten into legal trouble, had a falling out between co-founders, or whatever. You can build a huge organization and that organization can be moving tons of product, but if the company folds, or changes their marketing plan “again” or whatever, you are the one who loses. A solid company is vital.

HINT: Inventors typically don’t make good company presidents. If the person who invented or developed the product is trying to handle the business, make sure they have the skills. Especially as the company grows, it can cause big problems. Salesmen also aren’t necessarily the best leaders. They are enthusiastic and great at convincing, but that doesn’t mean they have leadership or management skills. Running a rapidly growing company requires a unique set of skills. The people at the top need to be highly competent and committed to the company.

Are fabulous, easily understood, inexpensive marketing tools already in place and easily available to you? If they don’t already have slick brochures, walk away. No. Run.

Use the tools the company has had professionally created. They have already been reviewed, tested, and tweaked for the best response. Don’t reinvent the wheel. You’ll be wasting your time. You need to spend your time talking to new people. If you need to express your creative side, then use it to discover new creative ways to meet more people.

What support structures are in place? Can you call, email, visit a website, talk to your upline, go to a meeting and get the answers you need right now?

3. A solid, well thought out marketing plan.

They are all a bit different and warrant a good look. How many income streams can you have with the company? How often do they pay commissions? How big does your organization have to be, or how much volume has to be moving throughout your organization, to qualify for bonuses, or additional income streams?

And one of the most important considerations is:

4. How much will it cost you personally to get into it as a business and what will it cost you per month to earn your commission?

If it costs alot to start in the business, you will have fewer people who will agree to try it as a business. Growing the business and growing your downline will be harder.

I know way to many people who have ended up maxing out their credit cards to keep qualifying to earn their monthly check. Think about that. You are going into debt on the one hand to receive a little bit on the other. Make sure you can easily afford the monthly requirement or it will quickly eat you up financially. Also, the higher the monthly requirement is, the fewer business builders you will get because many people won’t be able to pay that each month. The higher the monthly requirement, the harder it will be to build your business and the more people who will drop out.

5. Affordability of the product.

How much does it cost? We will assume it is a great product. But how much does it cost to try or to get started? Even if the prospect can see the benefits, it the price is set too high, you will have a harder time selling it. You have to meet more people, tell the story more times, than you would if it was something less expensive.

O.K., so based on the above criteria, what are the companies I work with?

By far my favorite:


Sunrider International. Their foods literally changed my life. They are #28 worldwide for sales. Every product and program they offer is truly extraordinary and revolutionary. I drink their teas and use their products every single day.

The company and compensation plan are excellent. Outstanding marketing tools and support are in place. Regular commissions are paid monthly. Your own free website is in the works.

Also very good:

Xooma. The product is Xtreme X20, a water enhancement product. Every day you pop a little sachet (tea bag) into a bottle of water and drink it. The organic mineral supplement in the sachet changes the water structure so you will hydrate better. It contains over 70 trace minerals that you body uses to perform all its functions. It makes the body more alkaline.

Hydration, trace minerals, and alkalinization are fundamental to good health.

It is a highly consumable product. People drink water every day. It is easy to explain, and have them understand, the benefits.

The cost. You can try it and get into the business for $9.99 which includes shipping. And that gives you 12 days worth of product. (international is slightly higher)

The company and compensation plan fit the bill. Outstanding marketing tools and support are in place. Regular commissions are paid monthly. Fast start bonuses for new business builders you bring into the company are paid weekly.

Your monthly requirement: $25.00 and that includes shipping. (International is slightly higher) For that price you get a 30-day supply of the product which you will be more than happy to consume yourself. If you purchase more, you earn more from what your organization is selling.

REALITY CHECK by Takara

Because of my line of work/play, I know endless numbers of people that call themselves teachers and/or healers. These are individuals who assist others – or try to – in healing, empowerment, and enlightenment. They may write books. They may do “readings.” They may offer hands on healing or other forms of energy work. They may channel. If you are one of those people – listen up. If you seek help from those individuals, then listen up. The channel is only as clear as the channel is clear. Yes I’ve said that before. And I will continue to say it.

If a person’s life isn’t working, if their health is failing, if they can’t pay their bills, if they keep having one disaster after another, then they have work to do. That work is on themselves, and not others. You can’t help anyone until you have helped yourself.

On the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness (1 to 1000), where do they sit?

Where do you sit? The answer to that question is vital. What is the percentage of “truth” in this book, in this sentence, in the readings being given by so and so? I often ask these questions about myself and others. Its time that you start asking those questions as well.

Just because a person has the ability to hear, or see, or feel something that you don’t, doesn’t mean that what they are “getting” is good information or even beneficial information for you or anyone else. In fact, sometimes it can be very disempowering and detrimental information. And you will believe it. And then you will go down the wrong road. You will be off track. You will be heading away from your goal of personal evolution, instead of towards it.

I see it happening every day.

Now on the one hand, if you listened to what someone else had to say and went down a detrimental path, it was for the learning. On the other hand, you don’t have to do that. You can use discernment.

Its time to take back your power. It is time to trust your own answers and guidance.

And if you are a teacher or healer, it is time to work on yourself. In From Fear to Freedom there is an empowerment gage. All you have to do is look at the gage and you know instantly where you need work. Even without the gage, you can ask yourself any of the questions about how things are going with your relationships, your health, your career, your finances, the amount of fluidity or drama you exerience, and you know instantly that you need work and in what area. You are never done. You are never finished.

What happens when psychic gifts open up suddenly? From what I’ve seen, the person’s ego becomes so huge they forget that they are still human and have endless lessons still to learn. They think that they “have arrived” and they have all this great stuff to offer others. In their own mind they are the grand teacher, the great guru, the great savior of humanity.

Unfortunately, all information goes through the human mind and if the human mind is still cluttered with falsehood – which it is unless you have done massive amounts of deep work to clear that out – then the information, even the energy, is tainted.

Stop fooling yourself and get to work.

I admit that I don’t have all the answers. I admit that I still have work to do in certain areas. I’m very clear about where I need more work and I focus on those areas. I do tangible physical things to make improvements. I seek council and read books from those who have mastered those areas.

How about you?

First, on the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness, where are you? If the answer is below 500, then your main priority in life should be to get above 500. If you are above 500, then steadily evolve toward 1000.

How do you answer these questions? You learn to dowse or muscle test. I prefer a pendulum because by using a chart you can get the answer instantly instead of having to ask tons of questions to narrow it down to one number.

If you are muscle testing with another person, can that person influence the answer?

ABSOLUTELY!

What?

Thought is powerful. If the person muscle testing has an opinion about the answer to the question being asked, they can and will affect the answer. It takes skill and a great deal of practice to ask questions without expectations of outcome.

How do I know? Because I’ve muscle tested hundreds of people. And sometimes, just to prove this point, I would have them hold out their arm and without telling them what I was doing, in my mind I would think the words “I hate you” and I would try to get that feeling inside myself. Guess what happened every time? The person would lose all strength. Big burly guys couldn’t keep their arm up. My personal theory is that it is the emotion behind the words that causes the thought to have so much power. So, if you take something to your friendly neighborhood chiropractor or naturopathic physician or someone else who does muscle testing and they truly believe the thing is not beneficial, then you will test negative for the product or gizmo. Or it will show up only mildly beneficial.

And that is why I say learn to muscle test just using your fingers or use a pendulum. Find out the percentage that you are influencing the answers and then drive that number down to zero. I never dowse when I feel off-center. And I’ve learned to pull back and hold still my emotional body so I don’t influence the answers.

My dear friend and business partner, Millie Stefani – who is really up there on the Hawkins Scale – taught me this. When you pick up your pendulum and before you begin asking questions, ask if you are a green eyed grass hopper. Sometimes you will get a yes to that question. That means that your consciousness is not in your body and you are not balanced – and it means you have no business trying to dowse or muscle test until you are yourself again.

Where are you when your consciousness is somewhere else and what can you do about it? We’ll talk about that next time . . .

Feel free to comment or ask further questions by posting your own comment.

I was flipping through the Parade Magazine in this week’s paper and saw the most intriguing article. It said if you could go back in time and spend a day with anyone, who would it be and why? Wow, the people and questions I’d have started popping like popcorn in my head.

Here are just a few. Feel free to add your own. I think this is grand food for thought.

The first and most obvious for me would be Jesus. Here are just a few of the questions I would ask him:
“People have said many things and I’ve had my own theories or insights about your life. So, tell me the real story. Were you actually nailed to a cross or is the entire thing a myth? What really happened? If you were actually tortured, did you feel any pain or were you able to “trance state” beyond all that? Were you married to Mary? Did you have children? Did you actually have 12 female and 12 male disciples? What were the exact thoughts and actions and energies you were working with to allow for the miracles? How can I do that? Was Judas a traitor or was it always part of the greater plan? Did things go exactly as they were supposed to, or did something go awry? Since I don’t believe in human sacrifice, I have a hard time believing a loving God would “sacrifice his only begotten sun.” (interesting spelling) And I believe we are all sons and daughters of God, so why do they say you were the only one. They say you “died for our sins.” I believe “sin” is wrongful thought. Why would someone have to die for that? This makes no sense to me. Some say you and your family fled to France. War and death and torture have become the passion cry of the religion created in your name. What would you say to those people? They say you are the teacher of righteousness – right use of energy. What does that have to do with hellfire and brimstone? How are you different and how are you the same as every other human walking on the planet? And on and on and on . . .

Next I would like to have a conversation with …
Nicolas Tesla. I don’t know that much about him, but I find him intriguing. “What really went down between you and Edison? Why did he fund you for a long time and then pull the plug? What would you say is the most significant and beneficial of your discoveries about energy and other things? How would you continue your work?”

I would love to talk to Original Source Creator about the beginning of the human race. O.K. so Creator is still with us. But I would love to have a conversation that I could actually understand. There is so much confusion about mankind and it’s origins. “Here are just a handful of theories about how we got here. Please give us the real deal. Did all of life evolve from pond scum and did we naturally evolve from apes? Are we a laboratory experiment somehow created from the Pleiadians and Sirians or other star races? Did we come up from the inner earth as described by the Hopi? Did God make the whole world in 7 days (and what is a day in God time anyway?). Were humans developed in 1 God-day into our current state? Or, is a God-Day such a long expanse of time from our perspective, that the evolution from pond scum into current day human was one day? Help us understand this please.”

You get the idea. Think of who you would talk to and why. Give us your thoughts.

Why did He have to die for our sins??

Karma clearing can take a million years. To get unentangled from the energies that enter with sin will go faster through mutual forgiveness. Sometimes you are the only one willing to forgive. Say your karmic debt is 750 dollar, the average debt of cc holders. You can ask for forgiveness in Jesus name because he is willing to let you use His cc. Then your cup can overflow with healing energy/chi..

Healing like He did you do by finding Him. This is by opening your Heart. Praying all the energies (demons He is surrounded with), chaINS AROUND YOUR TRUE SELF OUT. He told me He is like Houdini and always comes free. Everything we put in our hearts that was not Love, chains our true selves. Energies (demons??0 now can block our perfect health, energy flow/connection with God and we even have the experience of being seperate from God.

If you really want to get to Him, you would need to break free from the ties with the world. Breaking with the ego-mind snake and move to Christ consciousness (there is no dualistic thinking then, only God, only Light and not with an opposite, One Love, One Heart. In the real (is real israel, the promised land where paradise is regained, milk and honey, gold and silver light) Love is All/

Takes a lot of work, and yes you need to be free of fear as you are trying to be. Surrender to Love. It is a real fight at least for me, nothing all that easy. (I was attacked by my sin, and He is healing me now. Terrible hell, at least I cannot denie it is there now anfd there is nothing wrong livingin this illusion. It is like breaking out of the matrix kinda/./)

Love

PS the life of Jesus is also illustration of the ascension process and how to kill the ego-mind, or die to your selfishness to find the true self.

Thank you for sharing this. When I read the question Jesus was the first person who came to my mind and you asked him all the questions I was thinking. Then I thought about Tessla and the Tessla ring, you asked him many of the same questions again that I would have asked him. The only question you asked Jesus that I did not know about was the 12 men and 12 women. I was stoped dead in my tracks and needed to come to the blog and reply to you.
Namaste

Thank you for sharing this. When I read the question Jesus was the first person who came to my mind and you asked him all the questions I was thinking. Then I thought about Tessla and the Tessla ring, you asked him many of the same questions again that I would have asked him. The only question you asked Jesus that I did not know about was the 12 men and 12 women. I was stoped dead in my tracks and needed to come to the blog and reply to you.
Namaste

Hi Angel:

The Pistis (sp?) Sophia mentions the 12 male and 12 female disciples and the 3 years after the resurrection that Jesus taught them personally. I haven’t read the entire book – much like the Keys of Enoch – written by the same author. Too mental for me. Yet I was guided to read the entire intro.

Takara & Raven said…

I knew, of course, that some would find the need to answer the questions posed. There are as many truths about these questions as there are people on the planet – each with their own perspectives, their own beliefs, their own truths, each as convinced as the next that they “know” the truth. It is their truth and it works for them and for that they are honored.

The question I pose to you the reader is who you would want to talk with face to face, what you would ask them, and why.

Feel free to answer the other questions if you feel you must. Just realize that this is not about convincing anyone that what you believe is the true. It is about sharing perspectives, allowing others to think and believe as they do, reflecting on those ideas and finding more questions in the process.

It is an inquiry with no definitive answer. We can all theorize, channel, read books, and do whatever we do, but the truth is an unknown and it should be treated as such. Regardless of who you are there is always more to grasp, more to understand, more to let go of, and more to heal. As we each evolve, our ability to comprehend truth expands and yet our realization that we know almost nothing increases exponentially. It is a grand and glorious adventure – this time on earth.

Ask where you are on the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness. Ask if you are clear and balanced in the moment of your receiving answers. If you have attained a Hawkins Scale reading of 800 or above and you can raise the dead, heal the sick, walk on water, manifest food out of thin air, and radiate love and joy wherever you go, I am thrilled to receive your insight.

Of course I am delighted to hear from you even if you are not an Avatar, Adept, or Master.

All Spiritual Paths Lead to Love, Inner Peace, and Enlightenment
Even though there are numerous spiritual paths, many people hold strong convictions that there is only one path to God … and obviously that path is the one they are following.  It has been my experience that the higher you climb in consciousness and awareness … regardless of which of the spiritual paths your soul has chosen to help you get there … those paths all ultimately lead to oneness, inner peace, Divine love, and enlightenment. And I have met many following many spiritual paths that have gone far towards those ends.
 
I care not what path one follows … I care what’s in their heart. If they are kind, do their best to follow the Golden Rule, and are actively focused on growing and evolving as an individual, then they tend to be “my people.” And I have met many heart-centered people walking many spiritual paths. I look for those who have worked diligently to rid themselves of hatred, judgment, and fear … which taints and distorts everything they perceive, say, and do. Clarity and purity of mind, body, and spirit is a never-ending process.
All Spiritual Paths Lead to Love, Inner Peace, and Enlightenment
In the western world, most practice the Christian faith. Beloved Yeshua ben Joseph (Jesus / Sananda in his Ascended Master expression) definitely taught a path of love. Christianity, as practiced in western society, typically holds only a glimmer of what was taught by Jesus himself … people often forget or never connected the dots that he was a jew his entire life. For anyone curious about what I’m talking about, visit the work of Neil Douglas-Klotz. Just listening, intoning, and dancing the first line of the “real” Lord’s prayer can change your life. Neil went back to the actual Aramaic and developed a much more authentic translation of the original.
When I had a complete spiritual awakening back in 1993, I was soon intuitively guided to take a weekend workshop with Neil … whom I knew nothing about, but absolutely KNEW I had to learn from. I saw an ad in a magazine and instantly knew I HAD to go. It wasn’t a guess. It was an absolute inner knowing. Going there was greatly uncomfortable, because I knew nothing about Neil or his work and my personality was really rebelling as “Desert Wisdom Weekend” sounded pretty strange to me at the time. I’m so glad I went. It was glorious. It was my first real experience of sound healing. We were creating our own sounds by singing in Aramaic and other middle-eastern languages doing dances and other body prayers. It was extraordinary and truly life changing / transformational.
I have spent many moons with shaman, medicine men and women, wise elders from many indigenous cultures from all across the globe who came to teach and lead ceremony at the Spirit of Nature Retreat that I owned in New Mexico. Many of those people have far greater peace than the majority of white people (Christians or not) that most will ever meet.
I have met three actual Avatars (Master, Sage, etc.). One, in particular, exuded so much love, it literally caused me to have tears run down my face … without her saying a word. It was merely her presence and the Divine radiance that she exudes … which we, ultimately, can all become ourselves should we decide to take up that mantle for ourselves. Jesus (according to the English translation anyway) said: “know ye not that ye are gods” and “even greater things than these shall ye do.” Those are words I believe whole-heartedly.
My God, the God I stood fully in the presence of, the God I felt through every fiber of my being, the God I know to the dept of me is not a god of war, of vengeance, of anger and judgement or one that would ever require a blood sacrifice. And that is where various religions and I part company. My God is an exceedingly loving God, plays no favorites, loves absolutely unconditionally, and is delighted in it’s (beyond gender) creation which we all are. The beautiful thing about life on planet earth is that we get to decide what truth speaks to our soul. One can be deeply Divinely connected regardless of religious path, or in my case, lack of specific religious path.
The ultimate path for each person, I believe, is the one their soul pushes them to walk. For some, that means being part of a particular religion. For others, that means learning this and learning that, taking bits and pieces from all those we are Divinely guided to spend time with and then continue to climb in consciousness and awareness, to continue to heal the “sins” of fear, limiting beliefs, judgments, expectations, guilt, shame, blame, victimhood, etc. that keep us from becoming Avatars ourselves. To forgive ourselves and others for the things we have done, said, and thought this and other lifetimes. To receive insight directly through Divine revelation, and to continue to follow the still small voice within rather than what others tell us we “should” believe.
Yeshua / Sananda is a dearly beloved being of Light whom I greatly admire and do my best to emulate. His teachings of the Golden Rule (also part of every major world religion) is one I work to incorporate into my every decision, my every action. He has appeared to me on numerous occasions and I feel his distinct energy whenever I ask for him to be present.
I had a distinct memory (a flash of a vision) of walking along the shore alone with Yeshua one day and he kept saying the word Hashem. I so wish I could remember the rest of what he was saying. I assumed that it was my name in that lifetime. One day a few years later I felt “inspired” (in spirit / intuited) that I should look it up. It turns out that it is one of many names for God in Judiasm.
What I find fascinating is the large number of Jewish clients that I have. I said something about that to one of my dear friends and clients … who also happens to be Jewish. She said, “you feel Jewish to me.” The same is true of Native Americans though. I have many native friends who just don’t look at me or consider me as “separate” like they do many other Caucasians. I have been many things and I have “called in” those various lineages to my now. The closer I get to Oneness (I know I have far to go), the more I understand how all paths lead to the same place.
I don’t really tune in so much to the religion and teaching as I do to the Being behind it, the energy of The Teacher, be it Yeshua, Buddha, or some other Avatar … because that is what I believe all of us are here working to become.
From that perspective, I feel that all paths have validity. Those who are walking them are on that path on purpose. When their soul is ready for them to evolve, they will do so within that path (as beings like St. Francis and Hildegard von Bingen were able to evolve far beyond their peers and the constrictive teachings of the church at the time, while they were still within the construct of Christianity) or they will move on to the next thing their soul wants them to experience.

Hopefully by now you are aware of some of my various teachings. One of the things I often share are the 5 practices that can help you come into alignment and live what I call the Noble C’s (being calm, clear, confident, Divine connected, and courageous) in every moment. Those practices are:

When you do these things, you come into greater alignment with the truth of who you are, your own I Am Presence and allow the spark of Divinity that you are to direct your life … your words, your actions, your decisions.  From that place, you are “inspired” along your path.

Enjoy Beloveds,
Takara

Golden Water Dolphin Meditation for Planetary Healing

 

It seems like only yesterday that I found myself suddenly awake in my wonderful home atop Palomar Mountain in Southern California … a beautiful sacred mountain just east of San Diego. It was 4 am precisely and there were words screaming to be written down about healing the water and connecting to dolphins and whales. It was 1998.

I knew how important it was to capture the words on paper whenever they “come in” that way … so I got out of bed, found my pad and pen, and began to write. What started as a few thoughts quickly flowed into a powerful, transformational healing meditation for all the water on the planet, as well as dolphins, whales, and all the people who participated.

Dolphin and whales had already had an extraordinary impact on my life.

Overwhelming stress from my job as an engineer and manager in pharmaceuticals manufacturing caused me to open up what seemed a Pandora’s box of unhealed emotional wounds … including suddenly remembering I’d been raped in my late teens and had completely surpressed the memory. After making a few visits to a psychotherapist to help deal with all that, I quickly turned to meditation and alternative healing for support. As soon as I learned to meditate, I surprisingly and delightfully began to see, sense, and feel myself surrounded by dolphins. Along with seeing and feeling them, I was being completely engulfed in a tsunami of transformational healing energy from these dolphin beings I later came to call dolphin-angels. From that moment forward, each time I closed my eyes to do a guided meditation, the dolphin-angels would show up along with their powerful healing energy.

This had been going on for a year or two when I was guided (had an inner absolute knowing) that I was to attend Stuart Wilde’s 8-Day Warriors in the Mist training in the mountains of New Mexico. Stuart had become my Metaphysical Mentor. I’d read all his books and listened to his various audios countless times. At the Mist training, I met a woman from the San Juan Islands off Washington State who was hoping to start a non-profit for dolphins and whales.

She shared with me the story of Lolita … a magnificent orca from the San Juans who had been captured 1970 somewhere between the ages of 4 and 6 (reports differ), separated from her mom and family, hauled out of the water in a sling, placed on a truck and transported to SeaAquarium Miami where she remains enslaved to this day. The story touched me on such a deep level I hardly have words.

Before long I’d left my job at the pharmaceutical company in Pennsylvania and moved to the San Juans to live near Lolita’s family and co-found the non-profit for dolphins and whales with the woman mentioned previously. We traveled to Miami and I got to meet Lolita.

I had quite an encounter with her 20+ years ago when I went to visit. We were the first in line and ran up the entrance to stand next to her tank until it was time for her show to start. She came over to us and just stared. She never left, she never swam around. She ducked her head underwater a few times to get it wet and then came right back up to stare at us some more. Even the trainers noticed this odd behavior. The whole time she was performing, the trainers were pointing in our direction wondering who the heck we were and why she was behaving the way she was. She and I are deeply connected – truly like sisters – and I promised her that day that I would continue to share her story and to do whatever I could to help her become free and return to her family.

So being called upon to help the oceans and other dolphins and whales made total sense.

The “need” to get as many people involved as possible to do the meditation simultaneously at Equinox was something I knew I was being prompted to do. I contacted several people and organizations that promoted global events including Barbara Wolf who had a mailing list for people who did global meditations. When I shared with her about the meditation I’d “received,” she suggested I contact David J. Adams in Australia and she gave me his email address.

I find it deLightful how amazing events unfold, synchronicities occur, and wonderful people show up in your life when you follow inner guidance. Following the intuitive nudge to contact Barbara and then listening to her advice about contacting David has resulted in a 20-year (and still going) collaboration with this extraordinary man in Australia that to this day I’ve never met in person.

When I shared with him the meditation I’d received, he responded by sharing the one he had received 6 years prior (in 1992) called the Global Marine Meditation. As I read the words he had received, I was overwhelmed by how similar they were to the words I had “downloaded” from the Universe only a few days before. Here I was a female in North America getting information about water healing and a man across the globe in Australia had received almost identical words 6 years earlier. Discovering you are communicating with someone who is “tuned to” the same cosmic channel you are is a profound realization.

We immediately decided to “team up” and have been co-leading the meditations ever since.

Every year the frequencies rise and the energy coming through David and I and many others increases.

We invite you to join in for the Golden Water Dolphin Meditation for Planetary Healing and the Global Marine Meditation. As you read out loud or listen to the words, you will experience these vibrations on every level of your being. And you will add voice, intention, and healing energy to the focus of healing the waters of planet earth.
