What is it?
Prosperity is different things to different people.
For the poor - it is having 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.
there is a real or perceived lack (of any sort), "prosperity" is that
which fills its place. "Prosperity" is a
concept relative from person to person (as the saying goes "one mans' trash
is another mans' treasure"). The quest for
prosperity speaks to some of our basic human
needs, but taken to extremes and misdirected, it can reflect and cause imbalance in the soul.
we speak of prosperity, "money" is usually the first thought that comes
to mind, followed by all those things we believe it
represents (i.e. 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 the quest for
prosperity (be it in the
form of money or some other object of desire) takes
hold of us on a
very primal level (a level which is usually controlled by the
reptilian "ego-mind"). I am
not saying that desire or material prosperity is bad (desire
is a part of our human nature, and matter is the very substance of the
universe), but if such a quest is taken to extremes -
misaligned and inharmonious with a souls purpose, the ego-mind and
its fixation on the attainment of our "object" of desire (and the fear
loss), will easily take over our life. When that happens (and it can
degrees) our mental, emotional, and spiritual resources get
tied up and held hostage to that thing. However, if we can
attachments, we will free up a tremendous amount of energetic
resources, all of which can potentially be put to a higher purpose
- such as towards
our healing and the final liberation from the cycles of
reincarnation, enlightenment and union with the Divine !
Material or Spiritual ?
was right when he said "It
is harder for
a rich man to enter the Kingdom
than it is for a camel to pass through the eye of a
needle." Jesus was talking here about how the rich men of his
time could traverse from a material to a spiritual consciousness by the giving up of worldly possessions
and trusting in the universe to provide. "Blessed
are the poor for they shall inherit
the Kingdom of God" was the resultant promise or pay off for doing so -
"if you let go you get this" (apparently it worked for his
are still here after 2 thousand years).
modern interpretation would be: anything the ego-mind fixates on and
thus what we invest
our life energies into,
be it the pursuit of money, power, the
next drug induced
rush, or anything of a material
nature... our energies and consciousness can become attached to (and
thus limited by) whatever denser heavier darker
dimensions they are associated with.
Space & Flow
Where as the definition of decay and death
is the stagnation and final abandonment of the life force from an
organism, the definition of life is that it is constantly
changing and flowing from one state of energy to another. In a human
open, clear and
wide the channels, the more dynamic and powerful life can be
experienced. This healing work supports and strengthens this
opening clearing process by removing the impediments or blocks, which
allows life to
flow in and through us in even greater and more diverse ways.
"Blessed are the poor"
Spirit will come in
to our being
when we have made the space for it to do so.
is preventing or blocking our full experience of this greater flow in
Perhaps it stems from a
deep seated fear and lack of trust in the providence of Spirit.
Or perhaps our attentions and life force has become so focused in the
pursuit of the
material and its transitory commodities that we have become mentally
trapped, emotionally enslaved and energetically constipated. Whatever
the reasons, I believe our liberation from such limitations and the
subsequent experience of a greater more productive life is the
very definition, the material dimension is
congested, contracted, dense and dark. To have ones life rooted in this
dimension, the default emotional state would be set to fear and ones
mind to limitation, scarcity and survival.
This is the
polar opposite of what "Spirituality", "Freedom", "Love" and "Light" is
about. As for "Prosperity" and "Abundance", it's more than
just having lots of money - its about being in
"The Universal Flow", which is essentially being "at one"
the ALL, at one with Source, at one with Spirit, at one with Love. If a person was "at one" with the universal flow,
energies in all
its forms would freely, easily and effortlessly come in and out on
level - there would not been 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). Holding on (i.e. attachment) is a fear, scarcity and
based trait of the limited material
(reptilian) ego-mind that creates stress, pain, trauma, illness, and
when taken to its final conclusion, even death. Conversely,
letting go of all limitations, we merge into the one source of 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 demonstrable truth. A
effective tool used to release the hold our material ego-mind has on
us (and to increase our energy flow) is brought about through one of
two ways - selfless service (called "Seva")
or in its symbolic form - an offering of money. This payment of
"Tithing", is a time honored tradition seen in just about
every religion known to man, and it actually does help open
up and or expand our "Prosperity Channels". Of course, any time one
does this there are bound to be "growing pains" - giving up and or
may be uncomfortable and scary, but in order to heal and advance
spiritually, it is required.
yea first the Kingdom
and all shall be given unto you".
"Store not your
treasures where rust doth corrupt"
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 really true or 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 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" -
is 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.
Some say that spiritual development and healing should
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
someone really wants to receive healing, they
must be willing to give something of value back. It's one of
those laws of the universe - you get what you give.
Most people will not pay for something if
they do not value it. But even if given freely, if you did not value
the healing, you would not fully receive
nor hold the energy. For the healing 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
("in giving you receive"). In this day and age, this sacrifice usually
takes on the form of
journeys have required of the hero one great sacrifice or another
(and if you were in doubt, anyone who seeks for healing is a hero !).
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.
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 nor your kids. lol).
religious circles, as an offering to God, seekers of blessing and or
penance would scar or beat their own bodies
flagellation)... American Indians
do the "Sun
Dance"... and recently, some Christians have even recreated the
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 milled grain. When a penitant 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 Judeo-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.
common historic thread here is
that the sacrifice of something one considers precious is somehow
needed in order to "atone" (be healed or cleared) of ones
Jesus and the last blood
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 (eternal life
being one of them). However, I also think his sacrifice meant that the
time of ritual “blood offerings” was at an end.
Remember, the Temples of that time were very bloody affairs, what 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
saw enough of the later and said “No more ! certainly -Not- in
of God”. With that being said, I don’t think Jesus
don’t make sacrifices for those
things we hold sacred and dear, it’s just that
the old form it took of the “blood" sacrificing of animals and
the "eye for an eye" deal is not
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, other ways 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 or not true about the man. We
can only live in the present with what information and inspiration we
are given and trust it is true for us.
in a different time and culture that had its own unique
demands and needs, most 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... and they
physical hardships, horrific persecutions and death. What I ask of you
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 up
to you, 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
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 !
this very lifetime, we are blessed with the rare opportunity to receive
healing and spiritual blessings, where the only thing asked of us is to
simply pay for such
services. Comparted to times past, this doenst seem like much to ask -
demonstrate to Spirit our gratitude and willingness to give back to
Spirit. This is what your "Love Offering" "Donation" or
"Tithing" to this work is about.
MY TASK AS A HEALER IS HELP YOU GET
AND EMPTY SO YOU MAY RECEIVE MORE SPIRIT.
I keep working on the

things but I don't think I have let go enough of my own limitations.

have any suggestions?
is an old saying: "you need to spend money to make money". Its a kind
of a catch 22.... but its true. When you give, acting from
faith and trusting in the universal flow... you get back what you
(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 (its just one of those
universal laws). Traditionally, its suggested to tithe 10% of ones
earnings to a
church with the 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 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. And this applies
to all of us here
in this dimension - we have to put our energy where our mouth
is. This indicates to our deepest most inner selves (and to the Great
Spirit) our sincere willingness to change.
