Prosperity

What is it?
Prosperity is different things to different people:
For the poor it is to have money.
For the weak it is to be strong and in control
For the lonely it is someone to love and be loved by.
For the sick it is to be healthy.
For the lost and confused it is to know and be wise.

The quest for prosperity speaks to our basic human needs. Where there is a real or perceived lack in life, "prosperity" is that which fills its place. "Prosperity" is relative from person to person (as the saying goes "one mans trash is another mans treasure").

"It is harder for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God...."

When we speak of prosperity, "money" is usually the first thought that comes to mind, followed by all those things we believe it represents (all those things we think it can buy) such as comfort, control, freedom, security, sex, love, pleasure, power, prestige, and so on. Thus it is natural that the quest for prosperity (be it in the form of money or some other object of desire) takes hold of us on the most primal level - the reptilian "ego-mind". I am not saying that desire, material prosperity, or the reptilian ego-mind is bad in itself: desire is a part of our human nature, matter is the very substance of the universe, and the reptilian ego-mind has kept us alive. The problem starts when we develop an ego attachment to attaining any of these things (in this instance money). As our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual resources get more deeply invested, they eventually get tied up... and under the control of the reptilian ego-mind... held hostage. Since money symbolically represents the prime key to attaining all our desires, the reptilian ego-mind gets fixated on its attainment. This happens by degree, imperceptible at first, until like someone finding themselves insidiously addicted to a drug, the fear of its loss takes over and runs their life. The good news is that through the healing work, we can release these attachments, which in turn frees up a tremendous amount of stored energetic resources, all of which can potentially be redirected towards attaining a higher purpose (such as our liberation from the cycles of reincarnation, enlightenment and union with the Divine, or simply... to live a normal free happy life).

You become what you identity with and are attached to.

What the ego-mind fixates on and thus what we invest our life energies into (be it the pursuit of money, power, or anything of a material nature) our consciousness becomes identitied with and attached to and thus weighted down by. When we can let the ballast of our attachments go, our Spirit (like a balloon) is free to rise up into the Heavens.

"Blessed are the poor"
Spirit will flow into our life when we have made the space for it to do so.

What is preventing or blocking us from experiencing this Spirit Filled life?
Perhaps it stems from a deep seated fear and mistrust in the providence of Spirit.
Perhaps our consciousness has become so focused on the pursuit of money that we have become mentally trapped, emotionally enslaved and energetically constipated. Whatever the reasons, with this healing work, liberation from such limitations and the experience of a greater better life is very possible.

By its very definition, the material dimension is congested, contracted, dense and dark. To have ones consciousness solely focused on this dimension (where the reptilian ego-mind holds sway) the default emotional state would be set to fear and ones mind to limitation, scarcity and survival (the polar opposite of spirit, freedom, love and light).

 "Prosperity" and "Abundance" is much more than just having lots of money - it's about being aligned with "The Universal Flow" - "At One" with the Source of All - God. If a person was at one with the universal flow, energies in all its forms (including money) would freely, easily and effortlessly come in to you (and out) on every level. Like a clear open channel, there would not be any holding on in the slightest degree. There might not even be a desire to be outwardly "rich" in material wealth, but rather, the soul would experience itself as spiritually wealthy - feeling rich in wisdom, life, love and light, embracing the very universe in hand and heart.

Grasping, attaching, holding on... are fear scarcity survival coping mechanisms of the reptilian ego-mind, all of which creates stress, pain, trauma, illness, and when taken to its final conclusion, death. Conversely, letting go of such attachments and their limitations, we merge into the One Source of life love and light... and the abundance of the entire universe is ours.

"Blessed are those who give"
This is not just some empty saying but a very effective tool used to release the death grip our reptilian ego-mind has in our lives... which in turn helps liberate and increase our prosperity flow. It is brought about through one of two ways:
selfless service, called "Seva"
or the offering of money, called "Tithing".
"Tithing" is a time honored tradition seen in just about every religion known to man because it actually works! Of course, any time one does this there are bound to be "growing pains" - giving up and or letting go may be uncomfortable and scary, but in order to create more space for Spirit to come in, it is required.

"Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and all shall be given to you"

  "Store not your treasures where rust doth corrupt"
Conventional wisdom holds that we should invest our time, energy and money in the pursuit of wealth, position, power and pleasure, and in that they say we will find fulfillment, happiness and security. But in the grander scale of things, is that a wise use of our lives? If all things in this world leave us, break down, change and or decay... from the economy, society, government, friends, lovers and family, and of course our very own bodies and minds... at the end of our lives when we leave this world and meet our maker, what do we really have to show for ourselves ?

I believe that a true long lasting happiness and peace is found by following an "inner dream" greater than what this material temporal world can provide. To achieve that end, I believe that re-investing our time, energy and money towards spiritual development and healing is a most wise investment in our eternal self.

Sacrifice

"to set aside or consecrate - to make 'Sacred'"

Some say that spiritual development and healing should be free, yet this is not entirely true - some personal sacrifice has always been and always will be required. Why is this so? To assure the greatest healing possible on all levels, your personal will must be engaged and the sincerity of your intentions challenged. If someone really wants to receive healing, they must be willing to give something of value towards that goal. It's one of those laws of the universe: you get what you give, where you put your energy there is your heart.

People will not pay for something if they do not value it.

"In giving you receive"
Even if something was given to you freely, if you did not value it you would not fully receive nor hold its gift, and its energy would leak out like water through an open palm. In the case of healing, for it to be most effective (to be received into the deepest parts of your being), there must be a sacrifice - an exchange or return of something that has value to you. In this day and age, this sacrifice usually takes on the form of money.

All great journeys have required of the hero one great sacrifice or another
(anyone who is on the healing journey is a hero in my book !).
In this age, money is the common token of exchange, yet at other times and in other cultures it would have been anything of value.

When someone came to the shaman for healing, they made an offering of their labor, animals, food, precious objects, even their own children (don’t worry, I don’t want your pets or kids. lol).

In some religious circles, penitents scar or beat their own bodies (called self flagellation), American Indians do the Sun Dance, and Christians recreate the crucifixion !

In the ancient world, if a Hebrew broke or “transgressed” from the “Law", they had to make a “sin” or "guilt" offering in the form of an animal, bird or grain. When a penitent Catholic wished to be expunged of their "sins", they would make a money or land offering to the Church. Other offerings took the form of precious metals (the German word "geld" - as in tribute, gold or money - and the English word "guilt" came from the same source - geld in old German meant "sacrifice" and "vergeltung" meant "revenge").

This "sin" or "guilt" offering is not exclusive to those of the Judaeo-Christian religion or culture. In Saudi Arabia I witnessed two brothers trying to gather "blood money" to pay off the family of someone they killed in a traffic accident.

The common historic thread here is that the sacrifice of something one considers precious is somehow needed in order to "atone" (be cleared) of ones sins and be "At One" with God.

Jesus and the last blood sacrifice
A major tenant of the Christian faith is the belief that God gave up his sons' life to "pay for our sins”. By giving up (sacrificing) his physical body, Jesus certainly made the point that there are some things worth dying for (love and eternal life for example). His sacrifice also meant that the time of ritual “blood offerings” was at an end. Remember, the Temples of that time were very bloody affairs, with the constant sacrificing of animals, the acrid smell of burnt flesh in the air, smoke billowing into the sky... not an atmosphere that would engender love and forgiveness, but rather fear and trembling. The law of the land was “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” (thieves had their hands cut off and adulterers were stoned to death). But Jesus was all about love and peace, not torture, killing or war. In his time I am sure he saw enough of the later and said “No more !" certainly -NOT- in the name of God. With that said, I don’t think Jesus meant we don’t make sacrifices for those things we hold sacred and dear, it’s just that the old form it took (sacrificing animals and an "eye for an eye") was no longer required (we have evolved to more subtle forms of sacrifice).

Each Healer is Unique
As each soul is unique, so too does each healer have their own unique ways of working.
I am not Jesus so please do not compare me or my methods to him. Some of my ways may be similar, others may be different, but since we only know Jesus second hand from stories written down in books 3 or 400 years after his death, we will never really know what is true about the man. We can only live in the present with what information we are given and inspiration it brings.

Jesus lived in a different time and culture that had its own unique demands and needs, very different than those of today. His disciples went through many difficult sacrifices, some we can only imagine in our worst dreams: they gave up their positions of power and wealth, traveled to far off lands, endured physical hardships, horrific persecutions and death. What I ask of you is Not That (nothing no where near close). Rather, something very clear, straight forward and far easier to do – just receive the healing work. It’s that simple. What else you feel guided in your heart you need and must do is entirely your choice, but as far as I am concerned, doing the healing work is enough. And beyond that, there are no secret agendas, assignments, tricks, techniques, belief systems, memberships or hidden fees required.

Even as we speak, there are many beings in spirit who are (anonymously and invisibly) working on our behalf, pulling strings and making miracles. There are Angels watching over us, Great Masters guiding us, Soul Mates loving us, Spirits healing us... yet most times we haven’t the slightest clue any of it is going on (and that’s ok). This is one of the great mysteries of life... and it is happening to ALL of Us Right Now !

In this very lifetime, we are blessed with the rare opportunity to receive healing and spiritual blessings, where the only thing asked is to simply pay for such services. Compared to times past, this doesn't seem like too much to ask - that we demonstrate to Spirit our gratitude and willingness to give back. This is what your "Love Offering" "Donation" or "Tithing" is about.

MY TASK AS A HEALER IS TO HELP OPEN AND EMPTY YOU OUT SO YOU MAY RECEIVE AND BE FILLED WITH MORE OF THE SPIRIT



Abundance

I keep working on the manifesting end of things but I don't think I have let go enough of my own limitations.
We can't manifest the new if our personal space is full of old stuff we are attached to

I need abundance.  Do you have any suggestions?
There is an old saying: "you need to spend money to make money". When you give, acting from faith and trusting in the universal flow... you get back what you give (and then some). This is the idea behind tithing - you have to "prime the pump" each time you want things (money/energy/blessings) to flow (it's just one of those universal laws). Traditionally, it's suggested to tithe 10% of ones earnings to a church with trust and faith that Spirit will return the favor. What we (actually) do via this work is essentially the same thing, though perhaps in a more direct and powerful way. If you really want to experience what we mean, may we suggest you do an experiment and commit your tithings to receive these healing sessions.

For many souls, poverty is a serious master teacher. Being in a physical body, we have to ground our intentions through a material tangible act that goes counter to the ego-mind, and from the 2nd chakra, which coincidentally has to do with an expenditure of energy or its symbolic equivalent - money. And so on that level, a gesture of good will (tithing in one shape or form) is required - we have to put our energy where our mouth is. This indicates to our deepest inner selves (and to the Great Spirit) our sincere willingness to change.
