Now this is interesting ...

According to the date on this site, I have not posted anything since June, but truthfully, I posted something from my 'drafts' folder that I started in June, in July. Where it had been, because it was not in the draft folder all during June and up until it came back in July (it had vanished when I tried to post it the day it was written), because I checked. How strange .. but .. whatever.

Today I wanted to express my bemusement, and tentative delight in finding a Christian Spiritualist church here in Pakenham. Well, its not actually in Pakenham, its in Officer, but it is in a little church-looking building, and it seems to be everything I would want my own christian spiritualist church to be.

Why am I so cautious in my estimation .. well, I've only been there once, but I really did like what I saw. The ministers, male and female, ran the service together. The messages were good, appropriate to the theme of the day, as were the songs. There were jokes. People held hands during prayer, which I always think is lovely .. great energy .. and I went through their song book (can't call it a hymn book, no hymns in it) and the songs all have good clear messages, and are not 'just anything cute' as some of the song books in spiritualist churches I have seen. Afternoon tea might have been better, but I've been spoilt by the Wantirna spiritual church .. they have GREAT afternoon teas. And the other lovely thing is that this church is open to ideas from all other religions ... YIPPEEE!

So, check it out for yourselves, if you, like me, are searching for God in all sorts of places,

Pakenham Spiritualist Church

The Open Door Policy

Good afternoon, on a cold, creepy and blustery winter day here near Melbourne in Australia. I am watching the breeze blowing my curtain around. The window is shut, but a flying rock, many years ago, made a small hole in the bottom corner .. and I like to have breeze in the spaces I am in, cold or not.

That curtain is a strange thing .. it moves by itself. Sometimes its all the way open, and sometimes, like now, its almost shut. And its not me, or members of my living household, who are moving it about - oh no, to move the dear thing you have to climb up on my desk, take hold of the curtain rail and pray it doesn't fall down in your hands when you try and shift the curtain along .. so it tends to stay wherever it ends up. LOL

I wanted to talk to folks about 'the open door policy'. Cute name, not so helpful problem. It's about not letting ghosts in your house, or your energy, since I have people both painfully haunted and wearing attachments we cannot shift. Why does it happen .. I can explain that .. what we can't explain is why we can't shift them.

When I was growing up the 'church' taught 'do not play in the occult'. I thought they were crazy .. what's harmful about tarots etc .. still of that opinion, but two things that I know are trouble in the making are ouijas, and being haunted. One can lead to the other, and where the ouija is concerned .. it can lead to much worse .. but its not a topic for today .. so where was I? Oh yes ...

I know it can be fun to have doors move by themselves, have voices whispering just beyond your hearing, have taps and knocks, and things move .. except knives being thrown of course, which does happen ... people thrive on the fascination of the unseen. They 'must' ghost hunt. It begins as an entertaining experience, and ends up an obsession .. and why? Because we fear death .. well, I don't, but lots of people do .. and 'need' to know for certain what happens after we die. But I'll tell you now, the ghosts don't know folks .. because their 'world' is a tiny bubble of repeating patterns that has NOTHING to do with what really happens when we leave these bodies and pass into healing.

Ghosts .. a ghost is the spirit of a person who has died, who has not crossed over - gone through the veil - down the tunnel - found his or her loved ones - returned to God - gone to Nirvana .. or whatever else way you want to describe it. No, a ghost is a mass of confused emotion, heading for furiously angry, who is starving for something they do not know where to find .. but there are touches of it, and glimpses of it, in the energy of living people .. so they feed on the living, and the living suffer because of it. Oh yes, Fred .. that means you. You think ghosts are fun .. I know they are trouble waiting to happen. You love the cupboard door opening when no one is there .. used to scare the hell out of me as a kid. Doesn't now, but if a cupboard door opens without a reason I'll be checking the house and making sure whomever it is is going into healing quick smart. So they tend to stay closed.

Ghosts .. there are no neutral ghosts. There is no such thing as a ghost just 'hanging around' that isn't feeding from the living. And here is where the trouble starts .. because people want the fun without having to pay for it .. and you don't change that attitude when you are dead. We all love freebies, and until we pass into Healing, we will accept handouts whenever they are offered .. and a living person who lets a ghost hang around the house longer than the 10 minutes it takes to recognise them and get them into healing, is giving the ghost a freebie of their energy.

Why is this a problem .. because they do not take the excess energy we produce every day. No, they take our core energy, our soul energy, if you like. And the more you lose of that, as its slow to replenish, the sicker a living person can become .. mind, body and spirit. Mental illness can be one of the symptoms of perpetual hauntings, schizoprenia comes in two forms .. the voices in your head could be your over active ego, or they could be entities attaching to your energy. We can remove the latter, but can't do much about the former .. but there is medication nowadays .. thank goodness.

Life force energy powers everything we do, and we need all of our own. We were not designed to give that away .. or worse, have it taken .. because it is stolen from us in haunting situations ... who has ever had a ghost walk through them, and come away tired, drained and very, very cold. Oh heck yeah .. I can hear the guy, a few months ago, who couldn't wait to meet a demon 'just for the experience'. I pray for him, that he never will. I feel the same way about ghosts. We don't need this to happen. We shouldn't be looking for it .. and yet we do.

I admit to being a hypocrit, but only because I actually know how to protect myself psychicly. I help out in a couple of Investigation groups from time to time. It's fun to visit a haunted house and watch people's reactions to the odd things that happen .. like the glass that went in big circles on the table .. and I love orb photos .. but I go to those groups because I also know how to protect the people in them .. so that they can go home safely after the experience .. not 'wearing' anyone. So there is method in my madness .. but how about yours?

The open door policy is what some people have on their homes, when they invite in ghosts, when they don't protect themselves before going into haunted locations, when they allow ghosts to hang around, after they know they are haunted. It's like a sign that the gypsies, and 'travellers in Australia, used to leave on the fence of a house where the living folk were prepared to feed them, in exchange for work, or not. Once the door is 'open' its very hard to close. And if a person is in two minds about ghosts, like the neutral ghost person, ghosts will take advantage of that double-mindedness and keep on dropping in, disrupting the family, stealing their energy, and making the sane insane, the sick sicker and the depressed even more depressed. And we call that fun?

The open door policy also applies to our energy. Some people invite ghosts into their energy for a chat. They 'like the company' of a voice in their heads that is not their own. They might have done this when they were very young, or it might have been thrust upon them in a moment of weakness, but the more willing they are for it to happen, and the longer it remains, the harder it is to UNDO what has been done. In a metaphysical sense, a symbol has been drawn on the fencepost of their energy (the aura) that allows access to anything .. and I mean anything .. that happens to be floating around. And then they come searching out people like me, trying to get help for the problems they have created .. and get upset when we cannot problem solve for them .. because something inside them wants the situation to remain the way it is .. otherwise change would happen.

How can I say that!!!!!! They are not responsible for what is happening. It is being done TO them, not by them .. and yet ... who was it that invited the ghost in in the first place, or the first ghost, and now they are inhabited by many? I have heard this story many times over the years, and my answer is always the same. Change. You have to change. You have to change your energy, make your aura uninhabitable. Deal with the issues that invited the ghosts in in the first place. Release them. Love yourself, love God/Spirit. Ask for help. Stop saying yes when you should be saying no. Don't tell me you 'can't' because can't means 'I won't try'. Yes, its going to be hard, it takes time, energy and work. There are no freebies here. Everything happens for a reason .. its not just a bunch of words hung together, its the truth. Learn the reason, release the patterns, and let the negative stuff go.

What's the other solution. Learn from other people's mistakes and don't get into situations like this in the first place.

I have been in this industry for over 20 years and talking about ghosts, demons and hauntings for more than that time. Some people will never be haunted, and some people will never escape it .. it all comes down to us. We choose our reality. And we can choose to change.

In Love & Peace

Today is Monday, the first day of the rest of my life, and what am I doing with it? Washing. Ok, its not something profound, but at least its getting stuff clean. After that I might sort out the top of my desk, since decluttering your desk is as good as decluttering your head, according to an email that arrived in my inbox yesterday. I read it, then glanced around, and then hit the delete key. Maybe tomorrow. Today is tomorrow.

Back to the washing, which may not be hung out because the stuff from a few days ago is still on the line. It rains in Victoria. It rains a lot. A couple of years ago, just before I moved down here, there was a major, horrible, fire, that swept very close to this house (in relative terms), and my partner gave me weather reports (temp 47C, windspeed 100kms ph) from the top of the roof, where he was standing keeping an eye on what the fire was doing. Too many people died. In moments like that what do you do? Pray? I did.

A few days ago we took a drive through the region the fire had charred black. The trees have regenerated in their mad leafy patterns (all up the trunks, so few branches), but the undergrowth is still working hard to restore itself, and the tree ferns, in some areas, remain absent. During that time period there had been little to no rain, nor in Armidale NSW where I was living at the time, and now .. we have too much. When you look at that from a metaphysical point of view, what do you see? That those who are strong in their foundations can restore themselves, and those who are frail will fall? Some of the biggest and most beautiful trees did not recover, and the ferns are rampant in many areas .. so it doesn't matter how big or small you are .. what matters is what is happening underneath, inside you, in the quiet hidden places where your soul abides.

Australia is a land of extremes. There's no point in complaining about floods after long droughts .. this is Australia. So many people move here, or escape here, because we ARE the lucky country. We are governed by a bunch of lunatics who spend more time fighting than getting anything done, but at least they are not shooting at us when we protest their madness in the streets. Most of us have enough to eat, or more than enough, in some cases. Most of us have a safe place to sleep at night .. particularly now that its freezing cold, and there are many people out there trying to help those who don't .. who often don't want to be helped, or don't trust those trying to stretch out their hand in friendship, rather than a slap. They should not be expecting the slap ...

This blog started out with the thoughts about Trust. Who do you trust? Can you list the people on a page, a notepad, a stamp, on your fingers? Is God included in the list? That question comes up as I am discussing God, or gods, on another site, with folks that focus on communication with the dead, undead, and other unlikely givers of good cheer. God doesn't seem to fit anywhere with most of them. Mention the word and they go scampering away. And you know something, I don't blame them. Given the labels that 'God' now wears, I would run too. LOL If I saw God the way they do.

How do you trust something you cannot see? Good question. I had to stop and think about it for a moment, and then I remembered the sunrise, since we are now waking up in the dark. The sun comes up in the morning, we might not acknowledge that we do - but we trust that it will. Because we still get out of bed and get on with the day, and really don't notice the sunrise, unless its spectacular. I suppose it would be easier to trust God if he (she) stood up before us and did miracles? But why? It could only be slight of hand. Here's another example. Jump in your car and go for a drive. Make it on the freeway where some fool swoops around you and crosses 4 lanes in front of you (its happened), at 120kms an hour in a 100 zone .. I've driven through a deluge of rain on a London freeway, changing lanes constantly with cars that I couldn't see .. all I could see was the waves of water shooting skywards from their tyres .. and mine .. and we were doing 140kms. Even now my mind boggles. Between that and driving taxies for 2 years, I won't be frightened of driving again. Who did I trust then? Me, the other drivers? How about God? Was I praying then too .. you bet I was. Why was I travelling at that speed? Because there was nowhere to stop on the freeway, and everyone else was, and you had to keep up or be run over, and you had to change lanes regularly because the road to London kept changing all the time. Great analogy for life. It is not a regular straight, constant, safe, sensible, line. It weaves and dodges, and you have to learn to weave and dodge too.

So who do you trust? What the heck has God done to deserve it? That one hurts. If you go by the Old Testament trusting God is like playing Russian Roulette (with the gun). You have to love, honour and obey .. because if you don't, 'he' might smite you .. only no one has been smited (smit? smitted?) that we know of, in the past 2000+ years. So did we change Gods?

Interesting thought .. for a theology nut like me, but probably not for you .. so in brief terms, yes it appears we did. The old god in the Old Testament is called Jehovah, in the New Testament, Jesus called out from the cross to EL. If he had wanted Jehovah, I think he would have used his name quite clearly, given the circumstances.

The new God can be trusted to love us unconditionally, truly, deeply, madly (but not insanely). :-) The other thing you can trust is that s/he won't interfere in your life, one way or another. That's the gift of free will, the right to choose whatever path you want. You won't have to watch your back for lightning strikes, only bad behaviour by living humans, and some other nasty beings. That's their free will too. And what do you have to do in return for this love.

"Love one another as I have loved you". I know, in today's world, its a big ask .. but it can be a life-changing one. And all of us could use a little change once in a while.

What do you want to do - remain in a state of pain, or reach out to the hands reaching down to you and saying 'I love you'.

The most abused words in the english language, actually means we are alive and free, when we choose ....

"Your mission, if you choose to accept it ...................................................................."

Love & Peace,

Why we do what we do ...

Interesting question.

Why do you do what you do - the positive and the negative. The stuff that is good for you, your help to others, the stuff that wears you out - even if its for a good cause, and the stuff that is just totally detrimental to your whole energy system - like putting a needle in your arm to get a high? Why do you do it?

I haven't done that, but I've jumped into situations that would make an angel turn and run. They are not supposed to interfere in our free will, you see, but that doesn't stop me .. when you are doing something completely nuts, or putting yourself in danger, when I can step in and say STOP! You don't have to listen. A lot of the time you don't .. and then I might have to clean up the mess afterwards, and I will, because I would never let you stand there alone and helpless when I can lend a hand, a smile or my energy.

Sometimes we have to do something that defies another's free will, to save them, and we might feel guilty afterwards, or sorry, or have them never speak to us again. Well, that is their choice, but I would not be able to live with my conscience if I didn't act .. so my choice is to put aside guilt and look at the good outcome, the peaceful result, the changes in your life for the better - and all because 'I do what I do'.

So what is it I do? Sometimes, through the Grace of God, I change people's lives.

Wishing everyone a touch of God's good Grace,
Love & Peace,

Hello again

Hello everyone,

It seems rather appropriate to say hello again, after being away so long .. and where have I been? I've been on a long and complicated journey through bowel cancer and kidney stones .. they happened within 2 weeks of each other, so that I couldn't separate the pain of the operation for the 'removal of the site of the polyp - just in case' from the stones that were stirred up by filling me to bloating point with saline (some 6 bags full), which some bright spark decided would be a good idea a couple of days after the operation.

We shall draw a veil over the first hospital experience, and instead commend the nurses, and doctors, at the second hospital called Casey, where I was admitted for the procedure to remove the kidney stones .. all 8 of the stones were 'made of a substance we do not recognise, so we've sent them away for testing'. They've never told me what they were, but right now I don't care. I am just very relieved the whole experience is over and I am well on the mend, to the point of gardening again, and carrying clothes baskets down to the line to hang the washing out.

So hello! I've learned a lot about myself since the couple of weeks before the operation on the 3rd March. I've learned some good things, and some not so good. I've learned what I fear, not cancer, not death or dying, no, my strongest fear was that the pain would never stop. Hmm .. turns out I'm a bit of a control freak .. an undercover one. LOL I chose one heck of a way to learn it for certain. I am laughing at myself now.

Hello, hello .. the radio is back on. And I'm back at 'work', in a spiritual sense. Seems I'm going to be starting a 'church' .. well, a something anyway. The word church is synonymous with people running away in fright. I want them to run towards God/Spirit, not away. The Love is there. We only have to reach out and touch it ...

Love & Joy,

Focus on love

Good afternoon everyone,

The plan to write every day has not eventuated, but at least I'm thinking about my two blogs a lot of the time, so I write as often as I can. You'll have to bear with me as life swings and sways. Patience is a life lesson, but love is always the key.

Speaking of Love .. and I came intending to speak of Love .. I have been doing a little bible reading over the past few days. I get directed by Spirit, from time to time, to dip in .. and this time my toes hit the water in Corinthians - a very complicated letter from Paul to the Corinthian church .. issues lots of instructions, and slaps on the wrist for bad behaviour. Would that we could have someone watching over us, as Paul did with all his churches? And he wasn't the bad man he seems to be, for many of those books in the Bible attributed to him were not actually written by him. Do a little research on the subject .. it's very interesting.

Back to love.

Corinthians 13:4-13 if you know it, you will smile .. if you don't read on.

"Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoin wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part; but when the complete comes, the paritial will come to an end. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love."

Love - the first, last and only thing we should focus on. Love, the emotion we need most and value least. The first thing forgotten in our hunt for self-protection, for self-worth and self-knowledge. We are no longer taught to 'love our neighbours as ourselves' because most of us don't love ourselves in the first place, so how can we possibly know how to love others in the second? Love - the placing of another's happiness before our own. The honouring of our commitments, and promises; the honouring of truth between us. It all goes flying out the door when we are threatened in our 'secure' positions .. but they are not so secure really, because when we are challenged, suddenly they topple and the fall is what injures us, our pride, our egos. How foolish we have all become. I guess we have not put an end to childish ways.

Lucky for us that LOVE never ends, the love of God/Spirit for all of its creations - its that lovely stuff called 'unconditional'. It is what binds the atoms, that you think of as your bones, together, that keeps the flesh on you, your heart in the right place, your brain functioning. Funny how focused we are on our bodies, when its our spirits that are our true selves.

Have you fed your spirit today? Have you done something good for someone else? Have you listened to beautiful music? Have you read something that makes your heart sing? Have you said 'I love you' to someone who hasn't heard it for a long time. Can you do it for someone you are mad at? Can you climb down from your high pillar, touch your toes onto the earth, and allow yourself to feel 'unsafe' in our confusing world? And all in the name of love.

As the angels say to us all "WE LOVE YOU"
Love & Light

Who is ...

Jesus the Christ

Over 2010 years ago a child was born, probably in the town of Bethlehem, not in the town of Nazareth, which according to scholars, didn't exist then. Again, according to biblical scholars, it was the year -6BC, not the year "0" on which we are now basing our Western calendars. Which is interesting because it makes the millenium into 1994. I am not sure if anything dramatic happened that year, but I was living in Roxby Downs and, as usual, it was hot in summer and nippy in winter.

Jesus was not born of a Virgin. That was added later by the leaders of the newly formed Christian Church. They had to turn a 'man' into God, and so they turned his mother into .. well, they used a little poetic licence on the translation of the word Hebrew word for 'virgin', which I believe meant 'unmarried woman', and, in more modern terms Jesus could then have been called a 'b*stard', having unmarried parents. Only they were handfasted, as was the tradition of the time, so technically Mary becoming pregnant by Joseph cemented their relationship .. the rest is 'mythology'. By the way, I've read that John the Baptists mother was also a Virgin, as were a few other famous folk. Not very original of the church leaders, to so obviously steal from the mythology of those who had gone before them. But then, they did a lot of stealing along the way.

I can really sympathise with all the people who find Christianity nearly impossible. You have two groups - those of us who try to follow tradition, with all the extra knowledge that good research adds to it .. or in this case 'detracts from the mythology', and those who follow the Bible blindly, even when they know that men, lots of men, over many years, edited (redacted) it, rewrote it to suit what they believe at the time, took bits away and added them (Iranaeus - yes, I am letting you read for yourselves), and generally reintrepeted it to suit the times - much as we do today. I have, at present, thirteen copies of the Christian Bible and not one of them match the other.

So where does that leave us with Jesus the Christ. Right back at shaking my head and wondering? No, not really, because then there's the angelic point of view. You can add that to the mix. There's even a channelled Gospel supposedly written by Archangel Gabriel .. which tells of all the 'hidden' years of Jesus' growing up, while he travelled the world and learned from many wise Masters .. everything he later told his followers 'came from God'. Ummm.... or was that edited out too?

No wonder people struggle to believe in any of these concepts.

What does it do to your faith, when you want to call on the power of Jesus (God), as we were taught as Christian kids, and you know .. or think you do .. that Jesus was 'just a man'? Invoking his name (or praying to him) is just a joke - isn't it? Have you tested this theory? I have. It's not.

Did you know that God created each of us to follow in his/her footsteps and be creators too. How does one create? One believes in God, then oneself and ideas flow. Well, they do for some people. I am better at taking someone else's idea and adapting it myself. I would love to create from nothing .. but I start with nothing .. and end up the same way. Give me five pieces of a jigsaw and I'll make you a new one. That's a gift too. LOL

So I have to test every theory .. and I have tested the 'invoke Jesus Christ' one .. and it works.

I bet you didn't think I'd write that .. or if you know me, you knew I would write it. Yes, while I am not religious, I am Spiritual, and a great believer in the power of Christ on earth, and in the hearts and souls of every person living and dead. And so .. when I invoke the name of the Christ it works!

Hmm... do we see the difference I wonder? The Christ .. what happened to Jesus?

Have you read my book? It's on the net. The story is there.

Here's the link .. go and read. Three webpages from here .. or go back to the beginning and read it all. You never know .. it might open your heart the way it did me when the angels showed me what happened. And they did show me.

And so when I ask Jesus Christ to help I use his whole title, and combined with the Soldiers of God, Archangel Michael and his troupe, we bring change into the world.

Here's the updated Invocation. I hope you never have to use it.

The Michael Invocation

In the name of Jesus Christ,
Archangel Michael,
Remove all attachments from me,
All negative energy forms,
All negative thought forms,
All heavy energy forms.
All small demons and large demons,
All humans in Spirit and take them Home
All intruders and mischief makers,
All astral forces and dominants,
All living humans who try to steal my energy,
And do me any other harm.
All threads and bindings
All cords and ties
All chains and devices of any kind
All curses and hexes on any level
All karmic patterns that are self-defeating
Return me to my perfect energy now please
Thank you.

Try it!

Love & Light
