Preparing For Your “Afterlife”

As you will eventually discover, the term afterlife is a misnomer, and that is why I put ironic quotes around the word in the title. You are a spiritual being, and as long as you keep on having one human experience after another, you will keep on experiencing after-lives or between-lives periods.

As soon as you start doing Spiritual Rescue Technology sessions or any other kind of past life explorations, you discover you have definitely lived before and have managed to forget the really grubby parts of your previous experiences. After all, who wants to remember lives spent in prison or slaving on an endless construction project? Being immortal has its downsides as you can collect a lot of experience making mistakes.

Even collecting memories of lives you spent exacting revenge and getting even for past insults can be boring, so self-imposed amnesia seems to be the preferred way to start each new life. After all, infancy and early childhood are difficult enough without being burdened with regrets from former lives. A fresh start as a clean slate with no memories seems to be the preferred state of most children, at least on this planet.

Those fortunate few who manage to retain skills from previous lives gain a degree of celebrity that can be hard to manage and imposes a burden of hard work and dedication on a child who would otherwise be playing with toys and engaging in mindless pursuits. While the rest of us were frolicking and daydreaming, those children afflicted with past-life memories were composing symphonies, painting masterpieces, and performing on various stages. Some were entering universities and earning degrees at the tender age of 9 years old or earlier. Searching the internet for “youngest college student” produces a score of names of these young overachievers.

So, does knowing your true past and retaining your memories into your next life help you succeed in living a life of power and prosperity? That depends on what you want to do with your next life. Do you want to go in blind and hope for the best, or do you want to retain enough of your past experience to be able to choose parents who will appreciate your talents and will support you in your endeavors? Unless you learn how to manipulate infant gender, you will have to accept the child your new parents produce, so you could locate the perfect parents and end up in a body that is a different gender than your present one.

There are a lot of choices to be made in selecting new parents. Do you want wealthy parents who can provide for all of your material needs, or do you go for supportive parents who are spiritually aligned with you and will do whatever is necessary for you to achieve your goals? If you are to live an extraordinary life, choosing parents who home school you is one way to get a great start on that life. You will certainly enhance their lives, but they will be facing challenges requiring the ability to think outside the box. Choosing parents who are spiritually aligned with you is probably more important than their material wealth.

If you are not their first child, you will cause unbelievable stresses in the fabric of family life unless you are adept at managing older siblings who are not as gifted as you are. If you are the first child, you will need to develop skills in managing your younger siblings, so they do not suffer from the difference in your abilities.

Your next life can be spectacular or rewarding in other ways, depending on what you wish to accomplish. It all depends on the challenges you wish to undertake. The choices are essentially unlimited. You can choose to become a child guru or prophet if you want to instead of becoming a talented virtuoso in some other field. You can also decide to remain hidden from view during childhood and only emerge when you reach an age where you feel you can command respect as a young adult. This latter choice may be more difficult than being a prodigy, but you may have a career path that favors stealth as far as revealing your capabilities at an early age.

The point I am trying to make is that you will determine the course of your next life by the choices you make now, and you can prepare for your next life, your afterlife, by increasing your spiritual awareness this lifetime.

An Old Engineer Looks At Angels

Your spiritual companions can be viewed as angels or demons or unnameable horrors. They are all immortal beings, just like you and I, except that they have had a rougher time of it than you have. We know this because they can no longer bring themselves to run and manage bodies. They are as real as anything else in this universe, and they contribute to your life in proportion to the responsibility you can take for them. You cannot escape them, and you need to learn how to utilize their special skills to achieve your goals in life. As a trained engineer, I view spirits as the ultimate resource for getting things done as well as the most pervasive barrier to success if they are not properly managed. As a spiritual researcher, I found the key to working with spirits was understanding they are like us, and they are willing to help us if properly motivated.

Since time began, we have all spent an amazing amount of time degrading ourselves while pursuing sensations and playing zero-sum games that have diminished us from our earliest heights of power. Some of us can still animate and manage bodies, while others can only ride shotgun and spend their time critiquing how we manage our lives. Some are helping us, and others are quite frankly messing with us. Others are just along for the ride.

We make our way through time and space of our own creation, and we drag along with us a collection of spirits who have attempted to overwhelm us and whom we have overwhelmed. Almost every act of creation has bound us inextricably to other beings. Those who sought a unity with us are still powering our dreams and everyday activities. Those who sought revenge or retribution are plastered on us like barnacles, slowing our progress and disrupting the harmony of our existence.

There are a larger group of spirits following on our heels, attracted by the commotion we create with our lives. They drift in and out of our lives and add flavor to our personalities with their competing intentions and purposes. If we are driven to create with a higher purpose in mind, we attract those spirits who have similar purposes. If we seek sensations, we attract spirits who pander to those sensations, and our lives become a search for more and more sensation.

If we perceive ourselves as messengers of some God, we attract spirits who follow that God, and we speak with authority as spokesmen of that God. If we have found a pattern of living that brought us power, we usually collect kindred spirits who magnify that power and we act in concert to maintain that arc of life.

If we have not found a satisfactory pattern for life, we lose all belief in ourselves or in a higher power, and we may seek answers in victimhood.

In the study of Spiritual Rescue Technology, we find the spiritual rules to releasing ourselves from past mistakes and working with other spirits to rehabilitate ourselves and create a future more to our liking. The first and most basic rule is that we are constantly affected by the spirits who surround us, and we either take responsibility for them and manage them, or we are the unwilling effect of their intentions and desires.

Since they all possess life force, they can be a tremendous resource for us and help us achieve our mutual goals if we manage them well. Managing spirits is a skill that can be learned and a team of spirits working in harmony is a beautiful thing to see. It is also extremely rewarding for all concerned, both for us and for the spirits who choose to work with us.

No matter what people call them, if you can harness the skills of your spiritual companions and apply them to real-world problems, you will create results beyond all expectations.

Read my book, Talking To Spirits, and see how it can be done.

You Can Get Spiritual Rescue Technology Counseling Anonymously!

I have been delivering Spiritual Rescue Technology counseling for at least a decade, and a number of my clients have received counseling under assumed names. This is absolutely fine with me, as most of my counseling is directed to the spirits who accompany you with the purpose of setting them free or persuading them to cooperate with you in your current endeavors.

Setting beings free and giving you lasting relief does not require that I know your name. Tony Ortega recently contacted me about a former client who was happy with the sessions I delivered over the internet. I was pleased to hear the client was satisfied, but I did not recognize the name he used. If you are worried that the Church of Scientology will find out you are getting SRT counseling, please feel free to use any name you wish. 

I have found that most of the difficulties my clients are having come from spirits who are unhappy with what the client does for a living. They are like passengers on a bus who complain about the scenery and the route being taken. They are still stuck in past events and do not realize they are immortal beings who are part of your collection of spiritual companions.

It is a hoot to wake them up and help them discover they still have free will and can leave to pursue careers that they are more suited for. For example, the spirits who joined you before this lifetime may have zero interest in your real estate career and keep on distracting you while you are trying to close deals. Bored spirits can be a big problem when you are trying to succeed in business, and they want to see action of a kinkier nature.

If you ever find yourself doing things that are completely out of character, it is most likely that you have spirits who are frustrated that they are not doing what they want to do. The Scientology OT levels do not deal with these problems as they are essentially mini-exorcisms. You spot a spirit using the e-meter and get it to leave. In Spiritual Rescue Technology, I talk to the spirit and either get it to leave or persuade it to help you in your current career. 

You can get all the counseling you need to handle these beings using any name you wish. When your misbehaving spirits leave, you will experience great relief because you will be back in charge of your life again. As I said earlier, you are welcome to be a client under any name you choose!

Assuming A New Identity To Change Your Life For The Better – Part One

Your identity can mean many things. One of the common definitions is who a person is, or the qualities of a person or group that make them different from others. The assumption of an identity gets to be a bit complicated because your identity comes down to what people think of you. That means that your identity is determined to a great extent by what people agree you are. That means that your family and your home town and your school mates have a great deal to do with your identity, until you take steps to change your identity.

If you do not take charge of determining your identity, you can get stuck with the identity that others have assigned to you. Your personality affects your identity, but your personality is determined by the interaction of you and your spiritual companions and the way you react to the external world. Your identity is a negotiated situation because it is the way the world sees you. You can change your personality by handling your reactions to external events and to the spirits who accompany you through life. As you change your personality, you gain the ability to change your identity because you will change the way that others see you.

The important thing to remember is that you can change your personality through spiritual counseling. This allows you to change the effect that your spiritual companions have on you and this is manifested by your changed reactions to the threats and challenges of the world you live in. Simply put, you can change from being the adverse effect of challenges and threats from others to becoming cause over these others and impervious to whatever they are trying to do.

For example, the person whom other regards as a fearful wimp is usually carrying memories of punishments and threats from earlier lifetimes. When these persistent memories are erased, the person becomes far more aggressive and changes his relationships with the others in his life. These memories of punishments and painful deaths are carried not only by the being running the body, but by many of his spiritual companions as well. They have all died painful deaths which is evidenced by the fact that they are not able to pick up their own bodies, but have decided to tag along with you.

Let’s get back to matter of your identity. Your identity is what others think of you. You have a different identity as far as your children are concerned, if you have children, than from from your wife. To your wife, you have a certain identity, to your business partners and friends and career, other people climbing the ladder of success, you have another identity. If you grew up in a small town and still live there, people still may still think of you as little Tommy Smith even though you are middle-aged.

You have to behave in a totally different manner and have great certainty to establish whatever new identity you wish to maintain. This requires that every painful memory has to be addressed and totally handled in order to maintain your new identity without effort. In order to be real, you have to have all the behavioral characteristics of that new identity.

It appears to me that I have been promoting the ability to change your lives for the better, when what most people seem to want is to control their identity. When we grasp what identity people are looking for, we can give them that identity if they want. They have to identify the identity they wish to assume and the personality that supports that identity and all we need to do is to remove the counter intention to assuming that personality and that identity.

The counter-intention to becoming successful and assuming a new identity comes from the painful memories of overwhelm and defeat we have experienced, mostly in past lives. Some of the memories are ours, but many memories are being carried by the spirits who surround us and are being shared with us every day.

In Part Two, we will discuss how to handle the counter-intention to assuming a new identity and a new personality to go with it. Some of this may require counseling, but the beauty of Spiritual Rescue Technology is that you can do much of it yourself in solo sessions.

Unexpected Consequences of Economizing Unwisely

Reposted from October 12, 2016 by David St Lawrence

There are times when we realize that we need to economize, but I discovered that it is possible to overcorrect. In our desire to cut back on expenses, it is possible to alter our identity so much that people regard us differently.

A client of mine realized he was in over his head on his credit card debt and borrowed money from his IRA and paid off his cards and all outstanding bills.

You would think that this action would have put him into a wonderful frame of mind now that he was no longer worrying about keeping up with crushing interest payments.

He came to me because he no longer felt motivated to work, even though he had commitments to meet and clients to handle. To make this clear to you, these were the same commitments and clients he was happy to deal with before he paid off his credit cards.

On inquiring further, I learned that he had made one more change to his normal operation and that was turning his entire paycheck over to his wife so she could make payments into the IRA within a 60 day period so their withdrawal would not be counted as a taxable distribution.

What actually happened when he did this was that he put himself into an “enforced poverty” situation with no “walking-around money” or haircut money, or lunch money for entertaining clients and other people he networked with.

This “enforced poverty” actually changed his viewpoint of himself to the point where he could no longer act like the highly talented professional he was. He is extremely effective at selling his services and commanding high rates for doing so. His easy-going personality and confident approach to handling serious issues normally give him instant credibility when dealing with new clients.

When he “pauperized” himself by cutting out the simple pleasures that made his existence comfortable, he downgraded himself in his own eyes to someone who desperately needed to make deals at any price. If you have ever encountered a salesperson who was desperate to make a sale, you will know how repellent that attitude is. You just want to get away from his desperation. That shift in his viewpoint instantly affected his ability to make money.

I coached him into looking at what he needed in the way of his own discretionary income to feel comfortable about himself and his morale increased immediately. It wasn’t much, but it changed his self-esteem and that was what was needed.

Each of us has some idea of what we need to feel comfortable about our current place in life. For some, it is having enough money in their pockets to buy a meal whenever they want to. For some, it is having enough money to afford traveling by cab whenever they want to. For some, it is being dressed stylishly. All of these are creature comforts by which we judge our worth in some way.

If your income is dependent on your ability to make a good impression on others, these creature comforts are essential because they bolster your self-esteem and let you concentrate on doing business. If you deprive yourself of these service facilities your attention will be distracted by their lack and you will not present yourself with your normal confidence.

Maintaining one’s self-image is an individual issue and the solutions will be different for everyone. The essential point to remember is that if you are to present yourself in a way to inspire confidence, you must attend to those creature comforts that you consider essential.

I have been doing personal and business consulting for many years and deliver services over Zoom for clients all over the world. If you would like me to assist you in some personal or career matter, you can contact me at srtcounseling@gmail.com

Transcript of Academy Meeting on Identity – Part Four

This academy meeting covered a great deal of material about identities and spiritual companions that had never been discussed before. The four participants were Joachim Held, Alka Madan, Petra Held, and myself. This was the first online meeting where we were all invoking our spiritual companions for answers and opinions.

As a reminder, basically, an identity is what others think of you. It can be changed with Spiritual Rescue Technology.

Establishing Harmony With Your Spiritual Companions – Part Four


Your ideal scene should resemble a finely tuned team of contributing spirits who are cheerfully operating in accord with your wishes and who share in the creation of desirable effects in the physical and spiritual universes. You should be able to go from intention to final result as one seamless flow of activity, making adjustments on the fly as required and learning from the process, so your actions and effectiveness keep improving.

In this part, I will discuss how you can recruit and manage spirits to operate in complete harmony for maximum efficiency and pleasure. As I have mentioned before, caring communication is essential when working with spirits. Strangely enough, not everyone was able to grasp the meaning or the importance of this activity and continued to give orders to their spirits instead of bonding with them and setting them free. I have recently learned how to simplify SRT procedures so that you can easily develop trust with the spirits you are trying to help. The details are covered in the “Developing Trust With Others Series,” which you can find elsewhere on this site. However, I will cover the basic elements here.

The essence of a trust relationship is awareness of the other person’s emotions at all times and acting in a manner that strengthens the trust. The fact that you are using communication skills beyond the five human senses means that you need to be trained and practice until you can perform the actions effortlessly.

One of the most critical factors in creating trust is your state of mind. Having peace of mind allows you to transmit your feelings to the person or being you are trying to help. When you can reliably achieve peace of mind, you will be able to begin developing trust between yourself and any person or animal. Attempting to develop a trust relationship without first achieving peace of mind is a waste of time.

Trust, like admiration, is a phenomenon beyond the five human senses. It occurs when a person or being knows that your intention is to help them and not harm them. You might wish to think of this as telepathy, but it is a communication of your feelings to another being in a way that develops trusted cooperation.

You must maintain a clean intention that you are willing to help the spirit and respect their reluctance and any fears they may have. You must maintain your peace of mind while you are helping the spirit regardless of what they do or say. Your intention is what is important. If you have the right intention, your words will serve to let the client know what step you are on. If you are working directly with a spirit, you can probably run the process silently.

A person or a spirit can pick up your intention, and if you are living calmly in the present moment and intending to be trusted and helpful, the person or being will respond appropriately and will follow your instructions.

If you are operating in this manner, you can establish communication with any person or spirit by imagining that you are that person or being and continuing this activity until you can perceive what it is like to be that person or being. Repeat imagining you are this person or being until you are comfortable being them and know their intentions and why they have them. At this point, you will know what to say or ask to make the person or being happier. Their thoughts will come to you without asking for them. Do remember that you need to be aware of the client’s emotions as well as the spirits you are dealing with.

You need to stay in the present moment with your attention on everyone’s emotions while you maintain an intention of peaceful cooperation. You will know whether to ask if the being wants to leave the current situation or to continue working with the being who is operating the body, the client. If you have been maintaining your peace of mind, the client and the beings you are helping will cooperate, and the realizations and releases will come quickly. Some beings will desire to leave and may break away quickly without even saying goodbye. If you feel the release, just acknowledge their departure and take up the next step, which is to ask if any spirits want to join the client with his future projects. If you have been doing a solo session, you ask if the spirits are willing to help you and what are they interested in.

When you follow these steps, you will be enlisting spirits who are willing to help you and will work in harmony with the spirits who are already on board.

If, at any time during the recruiting cycle, you get resistance and negative emotions from other spirits, make sure you are securely in your peace of mind mode and locate the sources of disharmony for future handling. Do not stop handling the new recruits until they are free or securely onboard. Once the recruiting is complete, locate and handle the beings who are unhappy or disturbed. If you maintain your peace of mind, you will quickly resolve what has disturbed these unhappy spirits. It will usually be an unhandled incident that has gone into restimulation while you were recruiting new spiritual companions. You simply handle it and restore the spirit’s free will, and he will decide to become a recruit or go elsewhere.

You will notice that this is just a refinement of the SRT reach and withdraw process using easily understood concepts and terms that can be used with new people. One of the main differences is the stress on learning how to develop peace of mind through meditation and returning to that state during processing. You can read about achieving peace of mind elsewhere on this site.

If you are adept at achieving peace of mind, you will become instantly aware whenever disharmony occurs in your group of spiritual companions. The disharmony occurs when an engram is restimulated, so you merely have to locate the spirit who is showing signs of upset and handle the incident which has gone into restimulation. Sometimes, just a gentle inquiry of the being will enable him to blow the charge by inspection. At other times the being will realize it has been trapped and will wake up and leave of its own accord. You will know the situation is handled when a release occurs.

As you continue to develop greater harmony within your group of spiritual companions, you will experience a state of exhilaration that persists for longer periods of time. You will be able to go from intention to final result as one seamless flow of activity, making adjustments on the fly as required and learning from the process, so your actions and effectiveness keep improving.

You will be aware of your team, and they will be aware of you. It is a great state to be in.
