▣ Manifestation - Part 1. Expansion of the Rules of Manifestation 101

 WHO IS DRIVING YOUR BUS?

I hesitate to describe manifestation in a lot of detail because one individual or group will follow the rules explicitly, but then someone else will do everything “technically wrong” and succeed dramatically. The reason generally is passion – the one rebel fills their intention with their passionate drive and any road blocks that come up are bulldozed through.

The reason for presenting the rules is basically the same as the answer to “who is driving your bus?” In other words, many people do the easy and comfortable thing; they catch the same buses everyday and let a professional driver take them to their intended destination. The destination is someone else’s manifestation – you go to a place of work, a school or university, a restaurant or a happy hour bar, a place of entertainment, etc., and you passively participate in the entrepreneur’s manifestation. I know you want to challenge this scenario and tell everyone about how hard you work at your job or how hard you play at your favorite hobby or softball game, but it is still someone else’s manifestation and you are just one of the rider’s on their bus.

  • Ordinarily, we breathe shallowly.*                     
  • An insufficient supply of oxygen generates stress and a tired feeling, and generally promotes dis”ease”.
  • Breathing is the first big step to becoming a relaxed and healthy person. 
  • Proper Way to Breathe: 
          -- the throat opens as widely as possible (as in a yawn);
          -- the shoulders remain in place;
          -- the stomach is pushed out as the air is inhaled.    
  • Learn how to inhale fresh air and energy and to exhale tension, worries, stress, and fears.

 

*Encarta Dictionary – Shallowly…Taking in little air - characterized by the inhaling and exhaling of only a small amount of air.

 Part 1.  Am I Making It Up?

Written by R. C. Parker, Ph.D
Edited by Sandy Shapiro

I feel like I’m making it up! Or, the question is, “Am I getting psychic messages or am I just using my JAR (memories and beliefs) to create a story (analogy, metaphor, play or fantasy)?” A lot of people tell me I’m just making up messages so I’m wondering if am I crazy for believing in psychic messages?

▣ Detachment

Healing Prayer…Our meditation group often sends out (email) a “request for healing prayer” to offer our channeled and collective energies to someone in need – for example: an illness that is causing havoc in their physical being or in their family; an accident, sometimes extremely serious; a disaster, like the recent hurricane that hit Texas; or to pray for someone who is at death’s door; etc. We individually and collectively are more-than-willing to offer our channeled energy to the individual or family in need, but at the same time we acknowledge that the individual has free will to choose to accept these energies or that the Universal energies are calling for that individual or a family member to return home (to Heaven or to the pool of Universal energies). In other words sometimes the individual is ready to die.

So how do we as individuals and collectively deal with these apparent opposites; that is, how do we send healing prayers/energies to an individual and, at the same time, not interfere with the individual’s free will.

▣ THE BEGGING BOWL

We live in a metropolitan area that has a lot of wealthy people and some have so much wealth that they would have to live nine life times to spend it all if they lived at a moderately luxurious level. And then there is the individual who is wealthier than one of the Pharaohs of old Egypt or a Sheik of old Persia; but if you (or Barbara Walters were to interview him/her), there is always something else they desire.

 

A fable…

One day the wealthiest man in the city decided to go for a walk around the area and prove his magnificence. So out on to a city street he went and he soon came up on a man who looked like he was homeless and in dire poverty. This man was sitting on the park bench and in front of him was a bowl – the wealthy man assumed it was a begging bowl –

CAVEAT: The information presented in this series of posts is important to message receivers and message givers, but is not intended as a certification process to vouch for or teach everything that these individuals need to know. Always keep in mind that an individual has free will and should never sacrifice his/her free will to a psychic message or to a message giver.

 

I enjoy getting psychic messages and participating in psychic readings by an ethical practitioner (a psychic or medium). And, I enjoy attending a spiritualist church/chapel in which a practitioner gives messages to the attendees/congregation as a part of the overall chapel service. I also enjoy participating in meditation circles for developing practitioners and the ethical use of their skills, especially when the circle is lead by a psychic or medium who is sensitive to the participant’s level of knowledge; for example, giving a message to the new participant who has only limited exposure to the etiquette of receiving messages often requires additional clarification for the message to be beneficial to the recipient.

The information in this write-up is intended as a helpful guide to any psychic/medium in their delivery of life-affirming messages or readings. And, it will benefit the recipient by their getting the maximum benefit from a message or reading.

 Question: I am very sensitive to “railing” on anyone, because I believe as you have said many times “people do the best they can with what they have/know at the time. Here’s where I am struggling with this. For instance: I’m in a conversation with someone who is “railing” another person. Do I provide the wisdom like the statement below to the person who is doing the “railing” or do I let it go. What is the impact to me if I just let it go? Did I do what is morally correct (not sure exactly what that means these days) if I don’t take the opportunity to “teach” the person who feels it is necessary to do the “railing.”

BUCKET 2012
Richard Parker, Psy.D

 

Well here it is another year in my life has wrapped up. I obviously made it through 2011 and in relatively good health and high spirits. So now I start the 2012 New Year by saying to you and yours “carpe diem.”

 

 

There is a tradition that most Americans are well aware of that involves making New Year’s resolutions. You review your current life and habits and develop a few written statements regarding things you want to change. However, in reality, most of the resolutions listed turn into failures.  There are numerous rationalizations about why these desired changes fail because people are infinitely creative in explaining their basic lack of motivation. Okay, so you fail and that is somewhat of a shame, but, in reality, you expected to fail on many of the resolutions you developed for yourself; and, while I could write about dozens of rational reasons for your failure, it still might not cover your particular circumstances.

There is something about September that you should be made conscious of…September is the month every year when you may find yourself a little depressed, sad, and/or feeling rundown,   It is the month that precedes our energy related to transitioning from one year to the next.   In this case, from 2012 to 2013. 

“At this time you come face to face with life situations. Old ideas become outdated and new goals become feasible. There is often an internal struggle to decide whether to cling to the outmoded past or to associate yourself with the new incoming possibilities. The choices confront you and your reluctance shows itself plainly.

During our daily lives, we sometimes wish or want things to be better.  However, what we do is focus on the negative events or people that have put a negative idea in our thoughts; and then this focus creates a repetitive loop of negative thoughts in our heads.

People who regularly meditate often find that their physical and mental health improves. This posting is not going to cover the various scientific or anecdotal reports on the improvements to the practitioner’s health; you can go to a bookstore or on-line and find plenty of relevant information and counter-arguments.  That said, this posting is about how you can share the gift of metaphysical or psychic healing with someone in need.

 

There are several things that go into healing; but not all of them may be necessary for the person with whom you wish to share the gift of healing.

There are numerous healing methodologies and all are beneficial.
