There are many mysteries in life that leave us bewildered and even angry because life seems to be so unfair.
The people we care for who treat us badly and then leave us are just one of the mysteries that cause us emotional pain.
People who are cruel to others and to animals are a puzzle that no one seems to be able to explain or to fix anyway.
The effortless popularity of some individuals can be observed, but rarely can be explained. Similarly, the pitiful insecurity and social awkwardness of others can be observed, but rarely remedied.
The actions are always visible, but the conventional wisdom of counselors, life coaches, and family members does not seem to have reliable answers for much of the out-of-character behavior that is observed. Like cures for the common cold, there are many answers but few that produce behavioral change.
I recently had the opportunity to read an excellent handbook for improving anyone’s life and the advice is very reasonable, based on observable phenomena. Almost all of what I read was very logical and follows long standing rules for achieving success, prosperity, and happiness.
What was lacking was an understanding of what actually drives behavior for most people, and that influence comes from the spirits who surround us at all times.
When a person does not know the root cause for almost all behavior, that person, no matter how expert, can only go by what they can perceive. The person who can perceive spiritual behavior and spiritual communication sees all sorts of transactions and influences that are driving the behavior that is being displayed.
In short, the non-spiritual person can only see what is visible to the naked eye. Daddy is angry at his daughter kissing her boyfriend, so they must be made to stop that behavior.
Only when you can interview the daughter’s spiritual companions and the Daddy’s spirits will you discover that Daddy has some spirits that are hot for his daughter and the boyfriend is an old rival for her affection from many lifetimes ago. Daddy, who is an ethical father, has been resisting the urges he feels for his daughter but when his spiritual companions see daughter enjoying herself with someone else, they go into wild jealousy mode and he thinks the feelings are his.
If he gets some spiritual counseling and finds out where the urges are coming from, that validates his desire to resist the urges and at the same time relieves him of that desire when the helpful spirits are handled and sent to Venice Beach for rest and recreation.
Spiritual perception is like X-ray vision. You see what is hidden from the physical universe. The more you practice using it, the better your understanding of life becomes.
In Part Two, we will examine some other spiritual factors that influence our lives.
It’s been over a year since I last wrote about living guilt-free and it seems like we should go over this again for those who missed it the first time.
Guilt occurs when a person is convinced that they have done something wrong. Guilt is an emotion imposed on you by others. Other people can control you if they can make you feel guilty about what you are doing or being.
These feelings of guilt cause simple queries to trigger all sorts of unpleasant defensive reactions. If someone says, “Where were you?” or “Aren’t you going to the reunion?” you find it hard to give a simple and honest answer.
These deep seated feeling of guilt make you flinch when some one says, “You came in 30 minutes late!” or “You took the last doughnut!” or “You forgot to put the seat down!”
These deep seated feelings of guilt will also cause you to lie when it is not necessary. Instead of telling the truth, you find yourself inventing all sorts of excuses and white lies.
Well, it time to change your life and live guilt-free. If you have deep seated feelings of guilt that have been with you for years regardless of your actual behavior, you are afflicted with some spirits who are stuck in a mistake that has left them permanently feeling guilty.
I will be holding a webinar tomorrow, 12-9-18, on this subject of living guilt-free.

I have discovered beings who are able to stop you from making friends and making money. They are the source of your persistent failures to flourish and prosper. These are beings who you cannot handle yourself unless you are very unusual.
The real problem is that your efforts to make friends and make money are extremely painful to these spirits and they have all sorts of maneuvers to keep you from triggering their painful experiences.
These are the class of beings who take control of you and cripple your ability to deal with certain situations.
By the end of this video, you should have identified the beings who are blocking you from developing meaningful relationships, or securing the job you want, or preventing you from generating the income you are capable of.
You can download the video and review it again and again.

Thanks to all of you who have provided edits, corrections, and suggestions, Talking To Spirits is now ready for a final review by those of you who would like to see this book published.
It is now a healthy 244 pages with a working Table of Contents and a fair amount of new material since you last reviewed it.
If you wish to help me by reviewing this book and writing a review for publishing on Amazon, I will be most appreciative and will make sure you are mentioned in the Acknowledgements as well as receiving a signed paperback copy when the book is published.
If anyone has an idea of a review for placement on the back of the book, I will be very happy because a review that suggests reading a book is like gold when it hits the public where they live. Basically this kind of review tells a prospective reader why they need this book.
Let me know if you would like to join this last review team and I will send you a copy of the book immediately.
Thanks in advance.
By magical solutions, I mean hitting the lottery or the local casino for a big score. These are opposed to workable solutions which involve getting a job or landing a contract that enables you to pay off your debts.
First of all, if you have financial problems, they probably started when you first began spending more than you were taking in as wages or other compensation. Something in your personality allowed you to continue in this direction with the hope that something would work out somehow and let you catch up with your obligations.
You can try all you want to change this pattern, but nothing is going to change until you recognize this is a spiritual problem. I work with clients every week who are great people, but they are still struggling financially until they spot the spiritual trap they are in and actually handle the specific cause of their financial difficulties.
I am not going to bore you with the details, but there is a spiritual difference between (A) the person who cannot make friends and has trouble getting hired or making sales and (B) the person who makes friends easily and makes money.
If you are in Category (A) and want to be in category (B), you need spiritual help that actually deals with the trap you are in. Chanting and prayers will take your attention off your problems, but will not solve them.
Our good friend and traveling companion, Jim Spaetti, has departed his body recently. Here is a tribute to his memory.
James Edward Spaetti, 52, died Saturday, November 24, 2018 from a farming accident at his home in rural Carmi, Illinois. Jim was born on January 18, 1966 in Owensboro, Kentucky, the youngest of the seven children of Robert and Rose Mary (Schenk) Spaetti. He was a lifelong farmer and enjoyed traveling, amusement parks and concerts. Jim attended Campground Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Anna, Illinois.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, a brother-in-law, Steven Stratman and nephew, Joshua Spaetti. He is survived by his longtime girlfriend, Kim Emery, her parents, Karen and Jim Vaughn of Anna, her son Joshua (Karle) and her grandson, Nathan; by three brothers, John (Brenda) Spaetti of Evansville, IN, Donald (Mona) Spaetti and Mike Spaetti of Carmi and three sisters, Mary Stratman, of Evansville, IN, Ann Bova and Susan Spaetti, of Petersburg, IL. He is also survived by nieces and nephews; Jason Spaetti, Jody Garrett, Cory Spaetti, Charissa Blazevich, Nathaniel and Rebecca Stratman, Rachel Spaetti, Ben, Andrew, Casey and David Bova.
Services for Jim Spaetti will be held at 3 p.m., Friday, November 30, 2018 with visitation preceding the funeral from 12:00 p.m. to service time at 3:00 p.m.at Campbell Funeral Home in Carmi. Burial will be in St. Polycarp Cemetery in Carmi. Memorial contributions may be made in Jim’s memory to Mary Stratman for assistance of Becky Stratman and will be accepted at Campbell Funeral Home.
Here is a link to a video of some happy moments in his life: https://www.campbellfuneralservices.com/notices/James-Spaetti
Fair winds and good speed Jim!
If he visits you, please let us know. My recent impression is that he misses all of his friends. If you watch his video, you will probably be connected to him. That is what happened to me.
I asked him to stay in touch while he is still able to do so. Let him know how much he meant to us.
I have been doing some research recently to identify beings who we cannot handle on our own, and I feel I have discovered a subset of these beings who we would get great benefit and personal relief from discovering their existence.
These are the beings responsible for spiritual possession, walk-ins, curses, dementia, and other manifestations of being under someone else’s control, but the subset I wish to discuss Sunday are the beings who keep you from making friends and money.
These are beings who you cannot handle yourself unless you are very unusual. The biggest problem is that you can rarely spot them because they are the source of your persistent failures to flourish and prosper.
The real problem is that your efforts to make friends and make money are extremely painful to them and they have all sorts of maneuvers to keep you from triggering their painful experiences.
They will make you do things that your friends can see as non productive or as a complete lack of confront, but you will not be able to see or do anything about it when they try to help you by pointing out your inability to cope.
You may even be unable to recall what you do when you are confronted by a situation that activates them. These are the class of beings who take control of you and cripple your ability to deal with certain situations.
We will be doing some exercises to make you aware of the beings that affect you personally, but we will be doing this in a way that should not be embarrassing.
By the end of the webinar, you should have identified the beings who are blocking you from developing meaningful relationships, or securing the job you want, or preventing you from generating the income you are capable of.
At that time, I will be giving you a couple of solutions for handling these spirits which you can start immediately.
Join me tomorrow, Sunday, December 2nd at 12 noon on Zoom at the usual link: https://zoom.us/j/4710611444
There is a $10 donation for this webinar, use this link: paypal.me/DavidStLawrence/10
if you have not already donated.
There will be 5 webinars this month. If you would like to donate for a month of webinars, you will pay only $40 by using this link: paypal.me/DavidStLawrence/40
Lets finish the year in style by removing any persisting barriers! See you Sunday at noon.

There are an infinite number of spirits we may encounter but it is useful to arrange them in a limited number of categories based on our ability to interact with them and benefit from that interaction.
There are only three categories of spirits I would like to address at this time and they can be described as follows:
1. Spirits you can talk to safely without losing control of your mind and your life. These are responsible for the voices in your head and the troubling thoughts that distract you and confuse you.
2. Spirits who can help you and may already be trying to help you
3. Spirits you cannot handle without help from a trained SRT counselor
You are surrounded by spirits in all three categories, so there is no chance of avoiding them, but you can minimize the effects that any of these three groups can create on your life by your choice of lifestyle.
If you can choose a life of serenity and contemplation complete with Zen gardens or daily prayers as in a monastery, you are not likely to be doing anything which will disturb your spiritual companions in any of these three categories. Life can remain calm as long as you continue your ritual undisturbed. Any attempt to expand your activities to embrace the issues of modern professional life will trigger spirits in all three categories.
If you choose to ignore the voices in your head and focus on your work or on raising your family using prayers and other rituals to calm your restless spirits, you will enjoy moments of clarity and peace even though you will continue to be troubled when your spiritual companions are triggered into action by events you cannot control. This is the state many people try to maintain when they can.
If you are attempting to control your existence without regard to spiritual matters, you will find that your emotions are rarely under control. The voices in your head will be a constant distraction and you will find that people and life in general can trigger reactions from you that you cannot control. No matter how hard you try to focus on the important things in life, people continue to irritate you by their behavior and you are not happy with what is occurring.
On the other hand, if you choose to learn about these three categories of spirits by reading my latest book, Talking To Spirits, you will be able to deal with all three varieties of spirits when you encounter them. Life will become much less stressful and you will find yourself accomplishing more with less effort and confusion than ever before. By taking responsibility for the spirits who surround you and putting order into your life, you will find enjoyment and satisfaction that you will never experience otherwise.
Spirits are an integral part of every person’s life, learning to work with them and harness their energy makes life an adventure instead of a burden.
