Um, she says she works with the planet bringing in this new energy. that's her #1 job. Many Europeans feel she has cleaned up Germany, much to their suprise. And to mine. We were only in the south, but it felt sparkling, fresh, and luminous energetically. I was prepared to cringe esp. since I usually want to run from the heavy beams of German restaurants!

Shepherd, I am curious where you would put Sai Baba whom I see as the most expanded of the transcendentals.

Hi Everyone!

I'll be gone until Saturday for the Christmas holiday that my family and I will be spending with my husband's family this year in San Diego.

Also, my search for my birth-mother has ended. As many of you know I was adopted as a 3-wwek old baby, and one of our list members, Ed Hamerstrom, was telling me a while back how I ought to look for my b-mom when we were discussing stuff about Michael's "nine needs." So I finally did it, after some more coaxing from a woman I met at the AMT conference last month! Turns out my b-mom lives only across town from me, and we met on Sunday! It was a good meeting, and she gave me some pictures, some that include my birth-father in them, and a half-bother and half-sister in them. She wants to try to get back in touch with my b-father before I meet him or any of his children, as they may know nothing of me--even my existance. My family have all been very supportive of me in this search, even my mom who's always worried about everyone and very emotional about everything.... :^) Finding these connections is good, I feel. It's putting together a lot of missing pieces that I've always wondered about....B-mom thanked me for this "Christmas present" of contacting her.... Interestingly, she looks very much like my guide Alena, only older, who I've drawn and painted pictures of since I was 14, and Sunday she even wore the same color shirt as I always drew Alena wearing. We're going to meet again after the holidays. I am very glad!! :^)

Well Ed, what can I say? You were right!

Blessings to all of you this Christmas and on what ever other celebrations you may have over this winter solstice time....We have much to be thankful for in our lives, huh?

Love,
Lori

I recently had a very nice post from Alicia Weber, but as I responded I kept receiving information that her e-mail address was not valid--so I am not sure if she ever received my reply. If Alicia reads this, please note that I did respond and appreciated your comments. If any know her addess, could you help me!
I do wish each a joyous holiday and new year.

I might add that Pati very graciously loaned me her copy of The Michael Handbook. I find it quite helpful as I begin reading it. Thanks Pati!

Subject: Mother Meera and Sai Baba

Dear Joya,

 

Mother Meera says she works with the planet bringing in
this new energy. that's her #1 job. Shepherd, I am curious
where you would put Sai Baba whom I see as the most
expanded of the transcendentals.

 

A client of mine was the assistant to Muktananda in India for several years, and heard all the guru gossip. Evidently, many gurus disapproved of Sai Baba because they felt that he did the "show off" phenomenal stuff at the expense of what it's really about. A friend of hers, a young man, went to see Sai Baba, and the man told her that Sai Baba had come on to him and masturbated him. Other gurus felt that Sai Baba was taking energy from young men's semen to "fuel" his phenomenal accomplishments.

I know that he has beautiful messages, and I sense that he does a lot of good, but spiritual expertise does not guarantee that someone has done the necessary mental/emotional work to get it together on those levels. In fact, many spiritual paths neglect or even discourage doing that work, although new age spirituality is joining the mental/emotional with the spiritual. It appears that Sai Baba was taking advantage of his power over those who were seeking to get some of his needs met in a way that wasn't completely clean and clear.

OTOH (On the other hand), evidently even Gandhi had his ethical lapses--we are all human, after all--although they likely took place before the transcendental soul entered. There are people all over the world--especially in India, which has such a rich spiritual tradition--who are doing extraordinary things spiritually. I recently read "Autobiography of a Yogi," by Paramhansa Yoganana, and it is full of remarkable accounts of gurus, etc. who performed "miracles" similar to what Jesus did, and other things as well. "Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East" also documents these things. Occult masters, as they are called in Yarbro, by definition, have transcended the limitations of ordinary human consciousness and can do things like that. That alone does not signify the entrance of a transcendental or infinite soul; it may just be that the soul in residence is quite accomplished in those areas. Often the message, though, is that we are all ultimately capable of such things.

BTW, Bob Zelman, whom you introduced me to, is a healer who also works with clearing planetary energies, although probably not on the same scale as Mother Meera. Many, many people, both physical and nonphysical, are working on this today.

I believe that anyone doing good, necessary work aligned with truth can receive nonphysical energetic assistance. Some of that energy may be called transcendental (from a reunited entity) or infinite (from a reunited cadre). Basically, we're given as much (and the kind of) energy as we can effectively handle. There are many powerful people, such as Mother Meera, who can channel a lot of higher energies.

Love,
Shepherd

Subject: Reading Two Books

Hi Folks,

I just Christmas gifted myself with a copy of Shepherd Hoodwin's "The Journey of Your Soul" and a copy of Jose' Steven's "Tao To Earth." These are two extremely data-full and well-written books, but my problem is that I want to read them both at the same time... you know... like one with each eye. :>)# It's not working too well tho'. I guess I'm just not the omnipotent OS7 I thought I was.

So I've started reading, and jumping around in, Shepherd's book first. I'm beginning to get a handle on this cadence, cadre and casting business. Interesting stuff, this. Shepherd, you've done a really good job on this book.

And Jose', if you're out there in Michael-Teachings land, I skimmed through your book and find it a wonderful sequel to your yellow book.

Peace and Light to You and Yours,

Subject: Introduction

I've been lurking on the list for about a week now, and thought I'd introduce myself this Xmas morning before the kids wake up. I've never had direct contact with a Michael channel and haven't been told my overleaves, but I have read the Yarbro books several times over during the course of the last 12 or so years and feel that the information has been a rich part of my life. Yesterday I bought Journey by Shepherd and am looking forward to reading that. I'm excited about being on a list where things are discussed which to this point have pretty much been a private realm for me. In terms of my personal life, Sophie (my wife) and Thomas & Jonah (our children, ages 7 & 4), are planning to move from the Pasadena area to Santa Rosa on January 2. Leaving friends and family and the area which nurtured me which raises a whole world of fears (now I wonder what that says about my overleaves!).

Happy Holidays and peace and love to all of you!

Subject: Re: Introduction

Hi David,

I'm Jeanne Holley, and like you, I'm fairly new to the list. I too have been studying "Messages" and "More Messages" for a long time, but have not in the past had others to discuss things with. I've never been channeled, but I did have an automatic writing done for me quite a number of years ago, by someone I've never met. It was not signed Michael, it was signed Spirit, but told me I was a 3rd level old priest. I took the Michael Quiz on the Webpage and it said I was a Sage. So in January I'm going to have a channeling and find out what is right.

Don't fear the move. Look at it as an adventure, a journey you are destined to take. These things are not coincidence. They happen for a reason. Perhaps you will be in an area where there are many Michael People and your learning will accelerate. I envy you being in California where there are so many of Michael's People. I am in Southeast Missouri and they are virtually non-existent here.

Good luck on the move. Have a joyful holiday and be open to all of the wonder of the miracles of your life. Enjoy your children and look through their eyes. You will really see the miracles then.

Blessings and Laughter

Subject: NEW WORLD , NEW ORDER

    I am a new member on this list. I have a long contact with everything that concerns to esoteric. After a difficult period of my life I developed an ability to trance many kinds of energies, that have helped and tauched many interesting things. I think we all on this planet are going over a great developedment , time/space has changed , its kind if we are going through dimensions never been before. Its kind a new dimension being present in our daily lives. The people are confused because they do not understand whats going on their lives. They are atonished. Their inner being knows , but many few people can contact their inner being, they can see no answer, no hope, no place to go, it is because it is necessary a new way, new order, new mentalitty, the old world has gone, and it's necessary new instruments to this new life. The old materealist world has changed, and now the intangible world is up here, laser light computer, virtual instruments, everything e changing and man has to change very rapid.
This a great moment in our evolution, the fact the world has become little. The fact that we in our house can conect to somenone in the other part of the world is fantastic. Let's be thankfull to the great LIFE that is wisely directing this mutation. I wish peace e love to you all.

Subject: re: a new world

Dear Aguiar,

Very nice post, thank you. And very true.

It reminds me of a quote I picked up somewhere, although I don't remember where....

< In your concept of the cosmos, be aware of the stability that allows for individual chaos. >

This always felt reassuring to me as we walk on roads that seem to appear to us step by step as we create them, changing old to new with each step and each breath, each moment of our lives as we choose to respond and do differently. With our very beings as we radiate differently. It used to feel to me like we were earthworms of light. As earthworms move through the soil, they take it in enriching and transforming it before they release it again. In the same way, with things large to small, as the light of our consciousness touches our world, it is being transformed.

Lots to look forward to and be thankful for. Although I sense that we will have more than our share of awkward moments along the way as the old ground shifts out from under our feet and we're not sure what the new ground looks like because we're in the midst of creating it.... although maybe as the form changes, knowing the nature of our hearts, we really do know what it we want it to look like....

Best to all, Brin

I was making a bad taste remark, but let me just say that that offers is a lot of fuel for thought. :) I am not a Sai Baba follower, I have been to one of their centers in Tokyo once and licked their powder. I don't like the idea that it may have been semenized. :))) What is the essential difference between that Sai Baba story and drawing energy from young girls sexually or from emotionally shattered followers turned servants? I don't mean to be an advocate for Sai Baba or Virgin Mary or any spiritual authority. I just mean to point out that a lot of stories, whether true or not, become public whenever one follower or a group of followers decides to break away. I have a copy of a letter of this nature that many of you may have read, from a group that left Siddha Yoga (Muktananda, that you mention, then Gurumayi). I can send its full text in private e-mail to anyone who is interested.

There is no difference. Since the 1960s, humanity's psychological sophistication has been growing by leaps and bounds. I'm sure we still have a long way to go, but what was once unquestioned, or seen as being perfectly okay or the right and proper way is now understood as being a violation. Those spiritual traditions that do not integrate or even discourage psychological awareness (as many do) remain stuck in inappropriate behaviors, although in most cases no harm is meant.

The guru tradition (with the absolute power of an authority figure) stems from baby soul times when it was probably the fast track to growth, and still may be when we're in our own spiritual childhood. When I was 16, I became involved with Emissaries of Divine Light (not to be confused with Divine Light Mission), a fine but somewhat cultish spiritual organization in which we looked on the leader as being virtually infallible. EDL had a hierarchal system of leadership, and members were expected to follow their "focalizer" without much questioning. That whole system has fallen apart now, but at the time, it was what I needed. I had little self-discipline and no means of accessing my own power and inner guidance. It is said that you have to learn how to follow before you can lead. However, after I learned the lessons of that phase, EDL no longer enriched me spiritually (I was euphoric at first to have discovered this "family"). I stayed too long out of loyalty, which often happens in the guru system.

I was not harmed or scarred from my EDL experience, although many members feel now that they were. It gave me an excellent grounding in basic spiritual principles that I still value, but it also kept me stuck in some limited beliefs that I only sprang free from when I started working with a remarkable psychotherapist who was also psychic.

Best,
Shepherd
