Lissa Rankin, MD ~ 5 Ways Your Healer Could Harm You Without Ever Meaning To

’[Doctors] are so afraid of offering false hope that we forget how powerful hope is as medicine. How can there such a thing as “false hope?” In my research on those who had spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” illnesses, they all had hope – against all odds – and then miracles happened.” ~L Rankin

cartoon_doctorPatientMy mother had a sore neck, probably from Pilates class, she figured. So Mom went to her doctor, who ordered an X-ray. Upon reviewing the X-ray, her doctor ordered a CT scan for a week later. My mother asked her doctor why he was ordering more tests. Did he see evidence of osteoporosis? Arthritis? A slipped disc?

Without even making eye contact with her, Mom’s doctor said, “Could be metastatic cancer.” Then he promptly left the room.

Let me explain what was happening in my mother’s nervous system in that moment when my mother’s doctor said the words “metastatic cancer” without offering any comfort.

Mom was married to my father, a radiologist who read X-rays for a living, so Mom’s thinking rational forebrain knew that if the radiologist saw anything even mildly suspicious, he might order follow up testing and it wasn’t necessarily the end of the world.

But Mom’s rational forebrain was not in charge in the moment when her doctor said the words “metastatic cancer”. Instead, the amygdala in Mom’s primal brain flashed back to my father, who had died of metastatic cancer only a few years earlier. All her amygdala heard was, “Metastatic Cancer! A Certain Death Sentence!

When Mom’s amygdala heard the word “cancer”, her amygdala automatically signaled “danger” and the red alert fired off, flipping on Mom’s “fight-or-flight” stress response. Mom’s hypothalamus then released hormones that communicated with her pituitary gland, which communicated with her adrenal gland, and then BOOM! Her body was instantly filled with high levels of stress hormones like cortisol and epinephrine. Her whole body was now in what Walter Cannon at Harvard called the “stress response”. It was ready to outrun the threat, even though in reality, there was no threat to outrun. The only thing Mom could do was wait a week until her CT scan was scheduled.

You may not realize how much power your healer has to harm your health. Consider this:

1. When you’re scared by what your healer says, your self-repair mechanisms flip off.

Djwhal Khul ~ Hope

Terri Newlon  May 22 2014

Djwhal Khul here. Tashi Delek.

Alright. Well this week I think “Hope” is the keyword and how to work with the energy of hope.

We’re going to be experiencing kind of a lot more hap-hazardous occurrences. Be very careful. I recommend the words “I choose safety”, and even to the point of “I choose safety at all times for myself and all those around me.” Something of that nature.

So keep choosing safety. Slow down. If you notice that you’re getting a little stressed or anxious, it means slow down or completely stop and get your center back before you proceed. So you’ll see a lot more errors or mistakes that can cause, say, accidents or danger in some way.

Hopefully you’ll avoid it in the first place. And then in terms of Hope, something to spread on the inner planes for those who need it because there are many dealing with strong things right now. Continue reading

John Smallman ~ Your Guilt-Ridden Beliefs Never Made Any Sense, But You Chose To Believe In Them Anyhow

John Smallman’s blog June 19 2013

Humanity’s forthcoming awakening can be likened to an enormous wave cresting and breaking – a tremendous power (the ocean of Love) peaking and then spreading out in all directions encompassing all, and leaving no one feeling unloved, unaffected, or unchanged.  It will be a moment of unimaginable exhilaration as awareness dawns, through the directly felt experience, of being infinitely and eternally loved by God, our Father, and of the impossibility of being anything less than a perfect child of God, an essential and inseparable part or aspect of God in Whom the whole of creation has its eternal existence.  All sense of a separate form of individuality that is not one with God will be gone, and all the fear, the anxiety, and any sense of not being good enough or deserving enough will also be gone as you fully grasp and see, seemingly for the very first time, the wonder and the magnificence of the being that God created as You!

Let go of your fears and allow Love to fill you to overflowing.  It surrounds you in every moment just waiting for you to accept It and invite It in.  You are not, and never can be, alone, lost, or abandoned because you exist permanently within the field of God’s unfailing and eternal Love.  Within the illusion it is extremely difficult for you to maintain your belief in that unalterable truth for more than a moment or two at a time before all your doubts and fears come rolling in, wrapped in a cloak of skepticism as you once more begin to doubt the existence of God.  You have done a very good job of hiding Reality from your view, and you have great difficulty in acknowledging and believing in what you cannot see. That is all to change because the power of God’s Love for you is insisting that you open your eyes to the brilliant Light in which It is bathing you, and thus awaken.  You will be unable to resist Its loving calls to you for very much longer because It is everything that your hearts desire.

Paul Rosenberg ~ The Good Guys Are Not Coming To Save Us

The Daily Sheeple April 26 2013

A lot of Americans know that the US government is out of control. Anyone who has cared enough to study the US Constitution even a little knows this. Still, very few of these people are taking any significant action, and largely because of one error: They are waiting for “the good guys” to show up and fix things.

Some think that certain groups of politicians will pull it together and fix things, or that one magnificent politician will ride in to fix things. Others think that certain members of the military will step in and slap the politicians back into line. And, I’m sure there are other variations.

There are several problems with this. I’ll start with the small issues:

  1. It doesn’t happen. A lot of good people have latched on to one grand possibility after another, waiting for a good guy to save the day, and it just doesn’t happen. Thousands of hours of reading, writing and waiting are burned with each new “great light” who comes along with a promise to run the system in the “right” way, and give us liberty and truth. (Or whatever.) Lots of decent folks grab on to one pleasant dream after another, only to end up right back where they started… but poorer in time, energy and finances.
  2. Hope is a scam. It’s a dream of someday, somehow, getting something for nothing. People who hope do not act – they wait for other people to act. Hope is a tool to neuter a natural opposition: they sit and hope, and never act against you. Even the biblical meaning of hope is something more like expectation (or sometimes waiting) than the modern use of hope.

Michele Geyer ~ Hope Or Trust

Energetic Connection February 22 2013

Hope is a four-letter word.

The dictionary defines hope as “desire accompanied with expectation for fulfillment.” My definition is similar, yet much less accommodating and certainly not so nice! Here it is:

H stands for helplessness. O stands for oppressed. P stands for passive. E stands for expectation.

I stay away from that word, recently replacing it with “trust.” Trust carries a higher vibration, and “hope” is often just a mere step above victim, breeding powerlessness like a rabbit.

That’s part of a 2010 repost from my blog series on self-mastery and the levels of consciousness. SInce that time, so much more has been uncovered about languaging, visualization, brain waves, subconscious states and responses as they relate to our human potential to create and manifest.

Consider our constant state of transitional and evolutionary experiences: many of us are in a sort of post-pinnacle-limbo-state-of-being and even a bit of hopelessness right now. What we thought we knew last year, in fact the shift that so many looked upon hopefully, has not actualized in our 3D world. It’s just not manifest, here, now, in the way so many believed it would or could be.

Even so, and even more importantly now, it is our “job” to sustain the vision of peace, ascension, sanctuary, evolution, the betterment of mankind and our relationship to the planet…however we might “see it” as individuals.

Instead of hoping it will be, trust that it already exists.

The Western Mystery traditions use visioning practices to explore the inner realms, to invoke the divine and create sanctuary, often to evoke positive outcomes for the greater good. Essentially they use magic to hold ceremonial space, a picture of the inner temple and other realms.

There is no hoping involved. It’s an exercise of certainty and trust in both individuals and the group to make real what exists on the astral planes.

Laura Bruno ~ In A World Of All Possibilities …

Laura Bruno’s Blog | December 19 2012

In a world of all possibilities, with nothing actually settled or stagnant, I choose to empower those timelines and those revelations most empowering to Love, Freedom, Abundance, Joy and sheer Relief for the Highest Good of All. I see tears of joy, not pain. I feel celebration, not despair. I see reunion, hear laughter. Hope remains. May it be so.

May it be so across this Earth and across this Galaxy. May we each ignite with our Divine spark of creation only those realities that we choose to accept. May we remember our power to change our world by infusing the creative Power of our Imagination with full-blown heart-love, knowing that nothing is impossible with the immense love available to all of us at all times and timelines. May it be so.

In a world where all time is Now, in which past, present and future all meld into one cosmic soup of creative expression, I choose to empower the eternal Now that heals, reveals and awakens awe. I choose to receive Grace, and to live in a world that allows for miracles. A world in which impossible things take place all the time because we remember how to make it so.

May there be peace. May there be love. May there be freedom on all levels. May it be so.

Bella Capozzi ~ Make No Mistake, You Shall Be Called Into Service

The Angel Diaries | December 9 2012

No matter your age, your profession, your current circumstances in life… make no mistake, you shall be called into service. By way of your ministrations, you shall heal. Through your words, you shall impart knowledge. Your presence shall serve to awaken the lost and the seeking. In the course of your work, you shall be one who enters into a darkened room and, like a beacon, suffuses it with the Light. By virtue of your existence, you bring hope, peace and the quiet promise of a kinder, more compassionate world. They shall look for you in days to come, these gentle souls. Be to them the stars which brighten their darkened skies; be as the sun, rising up to illuminate the path they walk, to light their way. Your presence here is that of a living, breathing significator of the dawning of the new age, and in due time they shall grow to recognize you as such. These times are charged with promise. All is aglow with possibility.

You are the Placeholders and the Wayshowers. It is your responsibility to guide and to teach by example. Select your words with great care, as the spoken word wields the power to either uplift or tear down. Be cautious. Think before you speak and act, lest you wound your Brother, be it deliberate or unintentional. Exercise compassion and discernment and goodness. Decide only with your heart.

Aisha North ~ The Manuscript Of Survival (Part 233) You Are On Your Way Into The Portal Of Total Renewal

Aisha North | December 6 2012

As you are all more than aware things have started to happen now, and although you will all search in vain for any traces of these changes in the outside world, there are indeed some small hints as to what you have in store already appearing.

We know that these signs will seem to be of no importance as of yet, but as time goes by, these small droplets of hope will start to gather in size, and soon, they will start to form into small pools. And after that, much will happen at a fast rate. We say this in order to remind you all of the fact that contrary to what many have preached already, you will not wake up to a completey changed world the day after December 21. Or rather, it will not seem to be much different from the world as it was when you went to sleep the day before. But you will know better, for before you reach that day, you will all have in some way or form become aware of the deep, deep changes that are already underway. You will feel this, literally in your bones, and even if the pomp and circumstance many expect will seem to be less than willing to appear, you do not need any outward signs to tell you what you already know.

Mankind has already entered the future, and nothing can change that. No “big bang” or absence thereof can do anything to alter this. You are on your way into the portal of total renewal, and for some, the changes have already started to manifest in some interesting, but rather unexpected ways. So know that nothing you do – or anyone else do for that matter – can change the fact that humanity is changing for ever even as we speak.

John Smallman ~ Heaven Is The Destination Towards Which All Are Heading

John Smallman’s Blog | September 16 2012

The moment for humanity’s mass awakening draws ever closer.  The divine Love field enveloping the planet is continuing to intensify and strengthen as more and more of you open to it and allow it to change your perspective on life and its meaning.  The flame of love that is eternally alight within each one of you is growing and spreading its influence ever further afield as you empower it with your intent to release all that is unloving within you and offer only love, whatever the situation may be in which you find yourself.  This spiritual evolution, in which you are all so intimately involved, is a magnificent creative venture whose purpose is to wash away once and for all the pain and suffering that you have been experiencing and which makes the illusion seem so real to you.

Even the mainstream media is helping here, because the sight of suffering, however caused, projected visually and audibly into your homes does lead to a rise in compassion.  Before the times of radio, television, and easy travel it was very difficult to share or promulgate the stark facts of human suffering to a world where people lived, as it were, cocooned and isolated in their own small communities.  A few made a point of being informed on these matters and did their best to help those in need, but the effects of their efforts were very limited.

With all your new technologies and mass education, it is now impossible to remain unaware of the appalling conditions in which so many are attempting to live and raise their families.  And this rising awareness, over the last one hundred and fifty years or so, has brought the energy of enormous loving intent to bear on these issues.  Sometimes it has been misguided, but for the most part great strides have been made in arousing people to join together in groups to provide assistance and constructive ideas to help those most in need.  This desire and fierce intent to help the less fortunate has been growing exponentially in the last few decades and has now become self-sustaining.
