Magnetize Money (And Other) Tips for December

As you prepare for that merry month of December, Blog-Buddies, here are a few practical tips to get the most from the Magnetize Money Program (in Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy) and the rest of this blog:

1. Take that quiz before the answers come out.

Some of you have already been experimenting, and commenting here, about the Cult Recognition Quiz. It’s much more fun to do the quiz before answers come out.

Even after reading my answers, you may not agree with my them. And how scary would it be if a CULT quiz required you necessarily agreed with my answers? The whole point is to wake up your self-authority and, in this case, street smarts. CONTINUE READING

Cult Recognition Quiz

New Age practices are sometimes considered to mean “cult practices.” As if!

Cults have been educational experiences throughout human history. They’re among the most popular educational programs here at Earth School, along with:

  1. Addictions and torment over weight
  2. Sexual problems, intimacy issues
  3. Violence, drama; crimes, lying
  4. Taking responsiblity, handling money
  5. Risk taking vs. the need for safety
  6. Reasonable, balanced care of the physical body
  7. Fame issues, popularity problems, superiority needs, self-confidence
  8. Weird locus of control dynamics, co-dependency, enmeshment
  9. Love, love, “When will I have enough love?”
  10. Reaching out to God, seeking Enlightenment, “I’ll do anything for That”

Of course, any of these issues can become hooked into one cult or another. Very tricky indeed!

Alas, many people wouldn’t recognize a cult, even very sophisticated people. Maybe even you. CONTINUE READING

Leaving a cult? How I help with deprogramming.

Could I call myself a deprogrammer? Gulp, yes. I suppose I could.

Except deprogrammers have a reputation for being quite fierce. Sometimes, I’ve heard, they are hired to kidnap cult members, hired by anxious parents to slap that kid into shape over the weekend.

My approach is way different. In case you have a friend who wonders, “Is that cherished group of mine a cult?” you might forward a link to this post. Only please, please do not send that link just because YOU are concerned about your friend being in a cult.

However, YOU might be invited to help a friend who is dealing with cult mind control. Joe might be a participant in a cult. Gladys might have a significant other who may be involved in a cult.

How can you avoid enabling? How can you bring clarity? CONTINUE READING

Chakra databanks, a new perspective

Tanika Palm, Channeling about the channels called "Chakra Databanks"

Wow, speaking of gratitude — which the entire Thanksgiving week is all about, right? — am I ever grateful to Tanika Palm. Her latest book, “Prisoners of Fame” provides a wonderful perspective on chakra databanks.

“Prisoners of Fame” reports on her conversations with deceased celebrities. Combined with this is a really fascinating description of what it is like to be an ethical, very human medium.

Here’s part related to chakra databanks. CONTINUE READING

Thanksgiving 2010

Got thanksgiving?

You have a lot to be grateful for today. If you’re in America, you’ll be taking that all the way to the level of a national holiday.

Family of blood (relatives) and/or family of choice (friends) will gather around a festive table. You’ll be feasting. Maybe you’ll go around that table, taking turns, with each person saying aloud what about your life these days makes you feel especially grateful. CONTINUE READING

Another view of Dark Souls, Sarah Strudwick’s Guest Post

Blog-Buddies, sometimes a comment sent to this blog is so superb and detailed, it really deserves to become a post of its own. Originally Sarah’s words (and the first comment) below were submitted  in response to my post from today about “Why I don’t believe in Dark Souls.”

Maybe you’ll agree with Sarah. Maybe you’ll want to buy her new book, to learn more about the thoughtful and detailed approach that she brings to this topic. Here is some of her perspective about narcissists, being an empath, and more, with a bit of formatting and headings added.

Rose, as you know I have has a fit bit of flack about the book, some of it negative and much of it positive. 

When I was reading this post it wasn’t until I got the the very last bit at the bottom that I could think of a real way of answering.  CONTINUE READING

Why I do not believe in “Dark Souls”

Couldn’t there be some shades of grey?

Sure, I’ve heard the names just as you have: Dark souls. Darksiders. Psychic vampires. Energy vampires. Such a long list.

But do I believe in them? No. Here I’d like to offer my reasons, just in case they help you to shape your own views.

Recently at Deeper Perception Made Practical, my colleague Anna Conlan guest posted on ethics. She said explicitly that she does not believe in dark souls. That has implications for how she will treat her clients, her friends, herself. Every belief set has implications for a person’s quality of life. So it’s worthwhile to consider your own choice of beliefs on this topic, whether or not you wind up agreeing with Anna and me. CONTINUE READING

Cutting the cord of attachment to a pedophile

How Energy Spirituality can help victims of sexual abuse

Pedophilia is in the news, thanks to Amazon.com. Thanks in a way. Amazon won praise for removing its listing of a how-to book by a pedophile. (And no, I’m not going to add to this book’s weird cult following by citing the title.)

Of course, Amazon agreed to sell the book in the first place. It put up that initial listing.

Still, Amazon later did “the right thing” and stopped listing a book that taught sex offenders the “gentle” way to molest children.

With the perplexing and horrible problem of pedophilia, many of us just don’t know what to do, other than praise Amazon, sorta. And to take precautions against those with a history of being sex offenders, also encourage pedophilia victims to seek healing through therapy.

Well, two techniques of Energy Spirituality make useful adjuncts to seeking therapy. Just what today’s article is about! Keep reading only if you can tolerate a certain amount of grittiness along with your inspiration, because today’s post will include both. CONTINUE READING

Empath merge with The Sexiest Man Alive, Guest Post by Elaine

Ryan Reynolds, "The Sexiest Man Alive"

Oh, darn, we can’t all be designated by People Magazine as “The Sexiest Man Alive” in 2010. Even if gender weren’t a disqualifier, there’s that small numerical problem. But here is where most of you Blog-Buddies do win a fancy title: You’re probably an empath. CONTINUE READING

Coping when something is wrong energetically

There’s good news and bad news.

You Blog-Buddies are developing energetic literacy.

  • You’re becoming aware of the promise of Energy Spirituality, removing STUFF.
  • You’re learning about cords of attachment and frozen blocks of energy removed through Energy Release Regression Therapy (an unusual form of Past-Life Regression that directly targets STUFF).
  • You’re now aware of various other forms of astral debris, including the skill set I call “Spiritual Cleansing and Protection” for removing psychic coercion, astral entities stuck onto an aura, etc.
  • All this is the practical side of interest in New Age and interest in the paranormal — finding ways to heal problems, not merely observe them or speculate or seek the greatest possible psychic-level flash.

Yes, this is very good news. The bad news is that you don’t necessarily own all this knowledge yet.

It’s as if a new type of college major became available and you are college bound. And you want to be a graduate, already. Frustrating!

What are you supposed to do in the meantime? CONTINUE READING
