I hope that you are enjoying the energy and bounty that this season has created for you:-)
We certainly were very excited and shared so much enjoyment
during our recent healing workshop. It is always so humbling and rewarding
to see people as they go through the incredible transformative shifts within themselves while they discover their amazing intuitive abilities to help heal themselves and others.
All the workshop participants demonstrated their knowledge, awareness, ability in incredible ways. It was a great mix as some students had already taken Reiki classes in the past and others were brand new to Reiki and
But ALL were amazed and thrilled by their own powers to precisely and accurately detect the specific spots where healing energy needed to go by using their hands as the guiding intelligence and working closely with their spiritual healing guides.
When we make a commitment to heal ourselves and others, we always, without a fail, attune ourselves to the universal healing energy and become a vessel and an instrument of it. As we came to appreciate, all we have to
do is simply and fully trust the power that flows through us.
All they simply needed was to have this gift pointed out to them, and to learn how to “trust” it. It was so beautiful to be part of this awakening of energy flow.
Many people may think that to be a “healer” you need to be a “spiritual healer” giving hands-on Reiki or spiritual healing to others. However, the bottom line is that we are all born with healing potential, and with the will to heal ourselves and others, we can unfold these gifts and have it become a very natural and normal part of
As you may be aware, this healing gift can be practiced and used in many different practical ways. As you make your way through your “normal” job and lives, I encourage you to seek ways to apply your new found power and healing energy to help those around you that are in need.
This skill is best not to be confined to workshops or massage tables!
It’s really for our everyday lives, and can be applied to help the positive flow of spiritual energy in all of our interpersonal interactions.
It really is a gift that keeps giving.
For now I’d like to leave you with this thought and mantra:
Every single day, stop and take a few moments out of your busy days and try to build and hold focus on this
-- With will we can unfold our healing potential. We have a power to make a great positive change in not only our lives but in the lives of others. You can be the change that you want to see in your life and help others,

We have already stepped into the month of August. We trust you are celebrating the light of Summer.
As one looks at the month spiritually, it’s a time to step into your power, step into who you really are at your core being. The month brings the power one needs to move forward with the ideas or plans that you’ve been contemplating.
Some long-standing situations tend to move forward again, coming out of a plateau period. August is a time for one to revel in one’s beliefs, and to step into your power and express your truth.
The Summer is a time when things move forward very quickly and effortlessly. There may be changes within your work as well. Some feel a strong desire to change what they’ve been doing, or add something new to
what they’ve already been doing. Some will have work-related travel coming up. The month is closely associated with Power, Creativity, and Movement. Don’t look back, but move forward with confidence.
With much Aloha,
I hope that the recent mild summer weather has brought lots of
smiles to your face.
The season has been quite an exciting adventure-filled time with
many rewarding experiences. I hope that your summer season is the same. Most recently, the July 6th-7th 2-day mediumship training workshop was one such adventure.
The training workshop was filled with familiar faces all from very unique backgrounds, such as an attorney, engineer, entrepreneur, minister, nurse, and teacher. Each participant joined this new adventure with an open mind, but some with doubts and fears about their ability to speak with the so called “dead”.
We started the workshop with an opening prayer thanking the divine force for supporting us in our endeavor to unfold our unique gifts and inviting our loving spirit guides, helpers, and also our loved ones in the spirit world to the circle gathered.
During the workshop many tears were shed - - tears of joy, excitement, and love - - when spirit guides and participants’ loved ones came close, so close that they could feel the overwhelming power and love of the
Spirit’s presence. Every participant was able to blend closely with spirit communicators (our loved ones
in the spirit world) receiving specific and accurate information from them! I know that we were all astonished
by each other’s power of spirit communication.
Personally, I felt so blessed to witness the magic of spirit communication taking place within each and every one of the participants. I was excited by everyone’s confidence, excitement, joy, and wonder.
Through teaching sessions like these I receive additional confirmations that we all are powerful and beautiful individualized souls who are creating life experiences here on earth, fully supported by our loved ones
and spirit guides & helpers in the spirit world and, most importantly, the Great Spirit.
We are never ever alone.
Have a wonderful summer!

Many sitters tend to get very excited and are extremely impressed with the ability of an accurate psychic/medium who is able to pick up information surrounding the sitters, their past and present situations and also their loved ones in the Spirit World. This response to accurate evidence, and the trust building that it supports, while welcome can easily become misused or abused by an unscrupulous medium. The trust that a sitter develops with their medium over issues of the Spirit World, which the uninitiated are unfamiliar or inexperienced with, makes them vulnerable to statements and opinions of the psychic/medium that go beyond appropriate decorum and their professional expertise. The sitter who wholeheartedly believes whatever the medium / psychic tells them about their future can be subject to an unscrupulous medium’s personal prejudices and egotistical pronouncements.
It is true that a very competent medium is sometimes able to receive information about the sitter’s future from the Spirit World. However, an inexperienced or unscrupulous medium, sensing the sitter’s vulnerability and their willingness to believe whatever they say, may decide to make up forecasts regarding the sitter’s future even though they have not received information from the Spirits. They may do this in order to keep the sitter impressed with their skill. An unscrupulous medium may fib or exaggerate over what information and the type of contact they are capable of making. They may even go as far as claiming they are linking with the sitter’s deceased loved ones and giving the impression that they are in contact with the Spirit World.
Psychics and Mediums are naturally good observers and they can use that particular skill to get clues and fish for information by observing people’s reactions and body language. In addition to observing body language and reactions, psychics and mediums can get cues about their sitters by “tuning into” to their sitters’ aura. They can pick up information about the sitters’ deceased loved ones, for example, their names, personality, shared memories, etc., without actually connecting with spirits in the spirit world. However, uninformed sitters being impressed by this display, would naturally assume that the psychic / medium is in contact with their deceased loved ones in the spirit world.
This misleading or deceptiveness is not only unfair to the sitter, but is damaging to the profession and to other mediums.
As a medium myself, I’m very keen to witness how other professional mediums work with the spirit world, and have been fortunate enough to have had quite a few sittings with proficient and principled mediums. Nevertheless, before I came into spiritualism I had several readings from some “famous psychics” and had had unpleasant experiences. One devious and dodgy tactic used was that they would immediately ask questions about my life situation and from what I said they would draw conclusions about my future life. They said, for example, that I would get divorced within one year which didn’t happen. One such psychic asked if I had an older man in the spirit world which I responded in the affirmative, while letting the psychic know that my father-in-law is in the spirit world. The psychic went on to say that my father in-law was in a held-up place because he wants to come back to earth so badly, and that he wouldn’t listen to his guides in the spirit world – something I believed at the time. This type of information can give stress rather than comfort to a sitter and certainly goes against the one of the purposes of mediumship, which is to give comfort and healing to the bereaved.
The bottom line is that the psychic or medium is there to bring healing to their sitters instead of harming and misleading the vulnerable. Unfortunately there are those psychics and mediums who choose to practice an unethical form of mediumship and psychic readings whether with or without their conscious awareness.

If I tell you about a certain aspect of life here on a specific sphere, that in itself is a mere speck in one of the many, many spheres of activity. Were I to depict to you a great city and some of the life in that city, it would be only a very minute part of even one sphere. But that is where I have spent much time lately.
Visualise an antique city – shall we say in ancient Greece – with beautiful buildings and great domed roofs built from mother of pearl, suffused with a great light which is not an intense brilliance like the sun, but a beautiful soft glowing radiance. From these buildings pastel colours come which catch the light and reflect it making everything into a fairyland, you might say, since the buildings themselves look as if they are suspended in space!
Some of these great buildings house great libraries. There are places where one can go to read or study, where one can go back into past lives and histories of peoples and races. Some of these books are most beautifully illustrated. The workmanship again beggars description.
Also you find all manner of costumes, although most people wear a sort of long flowing toga in varied colours and hues, often according to their mood. Most colours are very delicate, but occasionally brilliant purples, mauves, blues and pinks can be seen. All kinds of materials are used. You would be surprised.
Everything that man wants to constitute an existence where beauty is the supreme factor is possible. As I have said, there are great cities here, and also all forms of nature with beautiful birds of many hues. In the countryside, in the forests and fields, you would find such loveliness in nature itself. There is such beauty in the colour of the grass, in the towering trees and in the flowers which sometimes are very different from what you know on earth.
You find people here who take great joy and delight in developing and looking after a garden, and who bring into being a great deal of beauty indirectly from themselves. A man’s garden may become almost a mirror reflecting what he himself is like. Everything here reflects people, and people in return reflect the conditions under which they exist.
Great beauty and loveliness are to be found in the mountains also. If you want to climb them you can, but it is not necessary. Here, although we walk and our feet touch the ground, we also know that by the very desire to do so, we can transport ourselves vast distances to other aspects of life.
Often we visit other spheres nearer the earth where conditions of life are very different. Nevertheless we feel the need sometimes to enter into them, perhaps to help individuals whose needs are many and great. There you often find a depressing state of being, from the point of view that there is little colour. In fact, the world in which some people live is a sort of monochrome in which colour seems to play no part at all. But to them it is quite natural, and they do not understand (or perhaps have not reached the point when they want to understand) that there are other conditions of life more evolved and more beautiful.
Everything is a state of mind, and man evolves accordingly. Beauty is something which man, unconsciously, creates by his own effort. When man desires and works for and appreciates beauty, then he gradually surrounds himself with it. He enters into a state of life of indescribable beauty because artists and people of great intelligence and spiritual evolution have created this condition.
Great painters still paint here. They feel the need to express themselves in colour and in form, creating works of art which surround many of our buildings. Great artists will sometimes take over in a new building and paint various subjects on the walls for decoration.
We have also places of what you would term religion – that is temples – but they are by no means narrow and confined in their outlook and thought. They are Temples of the Mind where man can enter and by his very thought process so aspire that the whole place becomes vibrant with music and colour. They are places in which you feel you are (and indeed, you are) reaching out into other spheres.
We live in a kind of communal state, but it is a perfect community because all the peoples live in harmony and love together as brothers and sisters. There is no one who stresses authority, and yet a kind of authority does exist to which one always willingly subscribes. There are no leaders in the sense that you understand it, but nevertheless there are people whom we know to be more highly evolved, and whom we respect and regard and accept as such. No person who is very progressed ever tries to force others in any shape or form, or makes any other individual conform. Then, too, we realise that if man is to progress, he must be free.
The only real form of progression is freedom of spirit to express yourself and to evolve gradually according to the instruction and the guidance which you receive. In other words, we must do, not just think. We must expound. Having expounded, we demonstrate. We know all things are possible, but we must make the effort.
