CASE STUDY – WHAT IT MEANS BEING SPIRITUAL                                            

SUBJECT: BELIEFS

I have received a letter from Natalie who asked if I was a “Buddhist” or a “Christian”?

I replied I was neither and said my belief system was “Spiritual”. So what do I mean by this?

Recently I re-read articles in the magazine of t he “Atlantean Connection” dated May/June 1992! Yes that is a long time ago so while the organisation no longer operates the words channelled by Hilary Elvidge  are still as meaningful today as they were 25 years ago. Here are some extracts that explain my thinking.

 

“Each of us is an essence (or soul or spirit).

We are here in a human vehicle, by choice, as we have been many, many tines in the past and as we will choose in the many times in the future. We are here to learn a lesson or to learn another facet of a lesson learnt in the past.”

Our aim is to perfect our essence so that we can merge with the Godhead (Source)which, when we are ready, will seem to be the only place in all eternity where we want to be. The Godhead, and each of our essences, is a purely vibrational state.”

 Then an explanation was given as to why we chose Earth to learn our lessons.

“Earth is a marvellous school for learning as so many positive and negative facets of being can be experienced here. But there are other places and other forms of being where we can and do learn or, where we have finished with this human life, we terminate it in one way or another of our choosing. We rejoin our essence and absorb our learning. We then decide what learning it is that we feel is necessary to do next.”

 A further explanation is provided:-

“When we choose to return here we plan with our essences, or we have planned with essences already here, the time and circumstances of our re-birth. We choose parents, siblings and locations that would seem to provide us with what is necessary for the learning we have chosen to do. Sometimes we do not need to live a complete life in order to perfect a learning so we terminate after a short time. Our choices are limitless.”

Learning

So what is the learning here?

The article provides the answers:-

“There is no such thing as right or wrong, and there is no judge of our progress except ourselves.”

“As our essence comes closer to perfection so our lives become more deeply in tune with spiritual things. We can see and hear more beauty around us and the reasons for the things we think of as negative in earthly terms become clear. We have a deep intuitive knowing of the whole of all that is.”

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.

CASE STUDY – WHY YOGA HELPS EASE YOUR PAIN                                            

SUBJECT: HEALTH

If you attend, as I do, yoga classes on a regular basis, you find you have more tolerance to pain. In my Kundalini Yoga classes we go through a series of exercises called asanas. They progressively get harder but are inter-dispersed with short periods of meditation then taper off towards the end of the one and half hour sessions.

 Most times I am directed to adopt a strange pose which is held for several minutes while breathing a certain way (sometimes short breaths of fire or normal breathing) while saying aloud a mantra and concentrating on the third eye! Many times there is pain from the strange pose. Why? In my opinion the exercise is designed to stop you thinking of issues in your conscious mind so that you can rise up into the sub-conscious which I prefer to call “super-consciousness.”

After 18 months of regular yoga I have discovered that, while yoga teaches you to handle your inner pain, it also makes you better able to handle external pain. By external pain I mean pain caused by others, by experiencing frustrating circumstances and the pain from unforeseen incidents.

You grow stronger and become more tolerant.

Learning

So what is the learning here?

Pain can arise from many sources. We should all take the opportunity to experience difficult circumstances like pain on our own terms.

This then prepares us for the pain inflected on us by others so we can live through it and come out the other side a better and happier person.

Yoga is an excellent way to practice handling pain.

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.

CASE STUDY – HOW TO HELP YOURSELF                                                            

SUBJECT: HEALTH

In the local NZ Herald Canvas magazine of 9 February 2019 was an interesting interview with one of my favourite authors – Deepak Chopra. The article headed, “Help Yourself”, was based on an interview with Chairman Evans.

The first paragraph was very special:-

“Deepak Chopra arrives at the hotel, diamond studded glasses twinkling in the sun. He’s just finished his daily two-hour meditation session, followed by an hour of yoga. He has the prospect of a 16km walk ahead of him, followed by his one (vegetarian) meal a day, so it is not surprising he is glowing.”

Tongue in cheek I asked myself, ‘Was I following him or was he following me?’ Why? Because my daily routine is similar. I have three half hour meditation sessions, half an hour of yoga and exercises, a walk to the local mall and back plus my one vegan meal a day! Yes I am glowing too!

Further down he says:-

“Many people aren’t aware of the possibility of self-healing,” says Chopra.

“Chronic inflammation is the precursor to all chronic illnesses. Fighting that inflammation is absolutely critical to total immunity, and that involves stress and diet.’

 Self -healing is what I have practiced several times successfully. So I agree with him.

Later he says:-

“We have no health system, we have a disease system – and it is mainly focused on providing care too late, Bureaucratic, inefficient, inept, it’s governed by people who know nothing about health, including some physicians.”

Once again I agree, In my opinion our health system concentrates too much on dealing with the symptom rather than tackling the cause.

Learning

So what is the learning here?

The learning here is to :-

  • change to a dimplier lifestyle,
  • give up your excesses,
  • realize good health comes from eating and drinking less,
  • more exercise and become calmer through meditation,
  • while doing what you enjoy.

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.

CASE STUDY – HOW TO HOLD ON                                                            

SUBJECT: CAREER

Yesterday I drove out from the city to the suburbs to an address I’ve never been before. Thankfully, my new girl friend, I call her “G” short for GPS, was accurate with her directions. As the doorbell did not ring, I walked around and found my hostess working in the garden.

Over a cup of green tea she thanked me for the phone reference I had given for her new job offer expected to be confirmed next week. So I asked her about the job: and was it appropriate for her training and her previous work experience. Then she said, “I applied for this position in August last year,” which was six months ago as it was now early February. She said she had prayed continually to be successful in getting the job and now “God has spoken.” She had experience the nee to “hold on”.

This reminded me of a similar situation my son experienced. He was one of two final applicants for a new marketing role in a long established engineering company. The other applicant was an engineer by training unlike my son who was experienced in sales and marketing. The decision was made and my son was not successful. Naturally he was upset, but two weeks later the company re-approached him and offered him the job as the other applicant had not accepted the offer. My son said, “The Universe was not ready for him previously.” He had experienced the need to “hold on”.

Finally, in my own case one of my business partners and I have been waiting for over three years for the opportunity to re-establish our overseas trading operations. Recently we have had several positive inquiries plus we have been requested to prepare a Business Plan for a very large project. So by “holding on” we are now seeing more and bigger prospects than we have had previously.

Learning

So what is the learning here?

In all three cases outlined above, by “holding on” not giving up or giving in, a successful outcome was reached.

However, it takes courage to “hold on” as well as patience and perseverance. So practice each day on the small things so you are ready to “hold on” when the big deal shows up!

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.

CASE STUDY – HOW TO CHOOSE TO HELP OR MOVE ON                

SUBJECT: RELATIONSHIPS

 I know two young women each with their own issues. From a Spiritual point of view, we all choose our parents, the events that happen in our lives and the experiences from which we have to learn.

The first person was born in another country but was raised in New Zealand since before she was three. She is bi-polar and has a personality that when in the depressed state she sees everyone as “Racist” towards her.

The second person was also born overseas and raised in New Zealand from her early teens. She was sexually abused and is frightened so much that she has not had an intimate relationship with a male.

Both women are “Millennials”, are attractive, single, living emotionally unfulfilled lives.

So here are some big questions that need to e answered:-

1) Did these women choose a life where they can overcome their issues or are they going to live their lives without clearing their problems? In other words, is it our aim in each of our incarnations to try and clear ourselves so we can go to a higher dimension?

2) What if you are a friend or partner to either of these women. What is your role? From the women’s point of view can they expect you to help them all the time, while from your point of view how far do you go to help them at the expense of living your own life?

For the first woman if you are a friend or partner, you have to learn to accept her mood swings and treat her as a normal person – if you can. Otherwise you walk away to live your own life.

For the second woman you have to learn to accept her being only a friend, associate or confidant. Your role is help her clear her issues, otherwise you walk away to live your own life.

 Learning

So what is the learning here?

You need to learn to be able to understand the “flaw in the jewel” in your life.

You need to learn to be strong enough to understand the situation and treat the situation on a normal basis and if it is not suitable after all the effort you put in, you must walk away.

You are here to experience your life and gain the happiness you deserve. So be ready to move on.

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.

CASE STUDY – HOW STRING CAN HELP YOU                                   SUBJECT: RELATIONSHIPS

 No, I’m not suggesting using string to tie up your partner, or keep him or her on a lead (Yes I know you’d like that) or tie him or her up so they are where you want them!

The other day I visited MOTAT (Museum of Transport and Technology) here in Auckland, New Zealand with some overseas guests – husband and wife and 8 year old daughter.

Each section of MOTAT was in a separate building. Each had a theme and most had one or more tablet like screens that provided instructions, information or illustrations of the history or technical theory being displayed.

At one site the screen had three buttons. When the little girl pressed the 1st button the screen showed a single vibration wave like that in the picture above. Then she pressed the 2nd button and two waves were displayed. Finally she pressed the 3rd button and there were three waves on the same piece of string.

To me the waves illustrated the complexities of relationships. If you picture a partner at either end of the string then if they are both vibrating at the same frequency like a single wave as they are both at the first and second chakras and the relationship is in harmony.

But what happens when one partner is vibrating a single wave at the 1st or 2nd chakras, but the other is vibrating at 6th and 7th chakras with three waves rather than one? The relationship is not in harmony.

Someone has to change!

Learning

So what is the learning here?

You need to learn to be able to read the vibration level your partner is at and have a system between you that allows one partner to change to match the other.

The challenge is to have a relationship that enables both parties to change on an even basis rather than one always having to change.

You need to learn to be strong enough to understand the situation and treat the situation on a normal basis.

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.

CASE STUDY – HOW TO HELP BIPOLAR PARTNERS                           

SUBJECT: RELATIONSHIPS

 Yesterday I had several texts with an ex-client who I have helped in one of her small business activities over the past 18 months. She made some excellent suggestions of how to create a new profitable business between her family in China and my contacts here in New Zealand.

I congratulated her on seeing the business opportunity. We even had a telephone conversation after she had finished her work but it was cut short by me so I could answer an incoming call.

Then surprise, surprise her next text came in that blew me away as she said:-

I seriously can’t be bothered with any of this. You have some very ancient ideas on race and I’ve reached my limit. The white dinosaurs at work all sound exactly like you and it doesn’t matter how much I explain it people like you don’t seem to understand it’s offensive. Maybe you should network with your people from your motherland – ENGLAND.”

 Then a follow up reminder that I was racist.

I don’t think any of your ancestors has to pay a poll tax when they landed in NZ on a boat.”

Yes I know she had been attending group sessions to help her handle her Bipolar symptoms. But to receive two totally different texts – the joy of discovery v the cynical put own regarding her (imagined) racist observations! How was I to deal with it?

So I watched several videos on You Tube and learnt you should:-

  • Show you care
  • Communicate in a natural voice
  • Tell her what you will or won’t do
  • Ask what can you do
  • Interact about normal stuff

This is the text I sent her.

“I hear your concerns and I will try to be more aware. I’ll keep you posted on the project. Sleep well.”

The next day I received a new text asking about funding the project with no mention of racial issues. It seems the pendulum has swung back into the positive zone!

Learning

So what is the learning here?

You need to learn to be able to accept everyone for what they are – not for what you want them to be.

If a person has Bipolar symptoms don’t argue or challenge them.

You need to learn to be strong enough to understand their situation and treat them normally.

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.

CASE STUDY – HOW TO TEACH CHILDREN TO USE THEIR FEELINGS             

SUBJECT; FAMILY

 Last night when I was on my evening stroll after dinner before the sun had set on a fine warm summers day, I passed a house. On the porch a young mother was watching her husband play with their son.

On the lawn the father was passing a rugby football to his young son who would push past him and dot the ball down as if he had scored a try. The most important part of the activity was the father who kept saying to his son, “Feel it. Feel it. Feel it.”

When I was that boy’s age my father never played with me, never gave instructions on how to play and never ever said the words, “Feel it. Feel it. Feel it.”

There is power in saying those words. To know the feeling of success, achievement or winning before you are successful, means you know what you are striving for. The inner feeling of winning can give you the incentive to carry on, to strive harder and push beyond your perceived limitations, as they are only thoughts in your head.

What if every father helped educate and train his children by telling them to, “Feel it. Feel it. Feel it” after they had successfully completed any or every activity in their lives?

 So, help your child experience and feel success.

Learning

So what is the learning here?

As a parent your responsibility is to help your children grow successfully through positive experiences and their own achievements. Your learning is to help them learn the feelings of success.  Check out the videos to see other ways you can help your child.

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.
