Handling Barriers With The Help Of Spirits – Webinar 9-16-18

This is a subtly different issue than achieving goals with the help of spirits. It also seems easier to implement, because it is far easier to identify barriers when you are not in top shape than it is to create goals.

I get the feeling that some of you would do more with your spiritual companions if it were easier to identify a situation where you could easily invite their cooperation and get a clear result. let me give you a few examples and you decide for yourselves.

Examples of Barriers

Your body doesn’t work very well

You have no energy – just want to sleep

Not enough time to get everything done

Not enough money to get something you really need

Suggestions for Handlings

Get the exact wording of the barrier

Take a close look at what was being done instead of overcoming the barrier

Spot which of these actions were influenced by spirits

Handle the spirits who are distracting you from overcoming the barriers

We will be discussing this in detail during tomorrow’s webinar. We will handle barriers for anyone who wants help with one. I was amazed at how much easier this is than trying to unstick creative activity.

Are You Feeling Under the Weather?

It troubles me when people I have counseled will quietly suffer from some long term physical illness or painful condition without taking action to improve it through spiritual counseling. They will go to a doctor and undergo all sorts of mechanical alterations but for some reason will not consider that their body is a spiritual/mechanical contraption.

Any living meat machine has a spiritual component and if you do not address the spiritual needs of your body you are missing out on the easiest way to restore its health.

Your relationship to your body is a spiritual matter. If you are unhappy with the state of your body, that hinders the healing process.

Handling spiritual upsets produces a healthier body and leaves you in a much better frame of mind to handle life.

Spiritual upsets do not go away on their own. SRT counseling is one of the fastest ways to improve the quality of your life.

Are You Setting Yourself Up To Be Taken Over by Other Beings? – Part One


I have recently discovered that a person can be exposing themselves to overwhelm by hostile spirits without realizing they are doing this to themselves.

The most important indicator is that their tone level is going down even with regular solo or counseling sessions. Session after session, they will have wins and then either at the end of session or afterwards, they suffer a relapse and feel discontented and unhappy about their prospects for getting better.

There may be many causes, but in all cases I have observed, there is one common theme that occurs again and again. The person wants to handle as many beings as possible as soon as possible and is not satisfied with handling one being or cluster at a time.

There is another indicator that is a bit more subtle, they do not seem to accumulate a growing cadre of trusted spiritual companions to ease their handling of life. They are constantly observing beings and clusters which are opposing them and the effect of these opposing forces does not seem to diminish.

Last of all, people at risk of being taken over do not progress out of the bottom ranges of this chart.

To learn how to avoid this situation, join me for part two of this series. If you have a concern that you are already being affected by this condition, give me a call and we can chat.

If You Are Not Talking To Your Spirits, You Are Doing Things The Hard Way – Part Two

Talking to spirits is NOT just for making you and them feel better. Yes, it does that from the very first communication, but the real purpose as far as I am concerned is that communicating with spirits is the most reliable way I have seen to increase your awareness and psychic abilities.

From the very first Spiritual Rescue Technology session, whether done solo or with a partner, you will experience telepathic connection with the spirits who surround you. Yes this can freak you out, but everyone has survived so far and lived to tell others about their experiences. At least, no one has gone running down the street shrieking about the conversation they have just experienced.

Most of you will begin to realize that spirits have been responsible for many of the thoughts that pass through your mind every day and at night when you have tried to sleep. Many of them have been yammering at you for years, trying to give you helpful advice and most of you have been able to tune them out when you did not want to listen to them.

Some of you will recognize the beings who have been your spirit guides through life. Other will begin to spot the sources of unexpressed resentment or fear that have dogged you for years. Once you begin to realize that you have been influenced by the beings who surround you, you are ready to begin talking to spirits in earnest.

One of the easiest ways to see if your spirits are ready to talk to you is to sit with pen and paper and ask your spirits if they have any suggestions for you. Write down the first thought that comes to your mind and keep on writing as long as thoughts keep coming. Do not try to edit the thoughts, just write whatever crosses your mind. This is spirit writing and it has been used for hundreds of years to get messages from spirits. If you do it properly with an open mind and no resistance, you will find that spirits get quite excited at you writing down their thoughts as they occur.

Some of you may wish to know how to get your spiritual companions to work on your behalf and I will discuss how you can accomplish this with ease in Part Three.

Don’t Resist Evil And Unworthy Impulses, Find The Source And Remove Them

This was a new one for me so I want share it with all of you.

The client was polite and diffident to a fault and seems to be relatively oblivious of other people’s true motives. He was constantly being taken advantage of by others even after receiving counseling on the area.

Today I discovered he has a resentful being who is constantly urging him to be more aggressive and who is seething at the client’s unwillingness to carry out the actions this being feels is necessary to survive. When I contacted the being, he launched into a diatribe about his frustration with the client and his lack of response to bad situations.

This being has been with the client for many lifetimes and is very frustrated at not being able to get the client to respond appropriately. The client will respond only if he is severely provoked or taken advantage of, at which point he will become angry. The client seems to be unable to perceive dishonest or hostile intentions until too late and has repeatedly said that he tends to take things at face value.

During the session, the being completely took over the client’s personality and railed at the client and how he handled life. I have known the client for many years and have never seen any trace of this being before.

The being complained bitterly how he was being continually suppressed by the client.

I worked with the being until he realized that he was actually free to go and could find a host who would be more cooperative and would allow him to contribute.

When this frustrated and hostile being left, the client was no longer diffident and overly polite. He appeared to be much more level-headed and practical about handling people with bad intentions. He seemed to be more able to spot other people motives. I did not get into a discussion of how the being had affected him as the being and his influence were obviously gone.

My observation was that my client had been wrestling with this being for many lifetimes and had learned to effectively suppress the being and his evil intentions and worked very hard to present a pleasant face to the world. A a result, he was a good person, but his suppression of his internal evil impulses made him relatively oblivious to evil in the outside world. When a person has attention on suppressing any evil impulses and acting good, it is hard to be sensitive to potential for evil in the environment.

He had been presenting a friendly face and attitude to the world for so long and suppressing any tendency toward doing evil that it limited his ability to see evil when it occurred in the world outside. Removing the source of evil impulses immediately allowed him to become more balanced in his view of the world.

This example shows the problem with suppressing evil or unworthy thoughts rather than locating the source and removing them forever. The effort spent on suppressing evil impulses and trying to do the opposite uses attention that could be better spent on observing what is happening in the outside world and dealing with it effectively.

The moral of the story is don’t resist evil and unworthy impulses, find the source and remove them.

A Frank Discussion About Curses

A being can curse someone to punish them and the curse can take almost any form. A curse is any expressed wish that some form of adversity or misfortune will befall or attach to one or more persons, a place, or an object.

It is an intention that harm or continuing failure will continue to occur to the target of the curse. Once the existence of the curse is spotted, removal of the curse with SRT processing is rather straight forward.

Spotting the existence of a curse is more difficult that you might expect because a curse can take many forms. Here are just a few of the manifestations of a curse:

  1. Continuing failures in efforts to find work
  2. Continuing failures in establishing and maintaining relationships
  3. Harmful things occurring to loved ones with no apparent cause
  4. Recurring illnesses with no apparent connection to sources of infection
  5. Life seems to be a continuing roller coaster – any success is followed by an inexplicable disaster
  6. When counseling is sought, gains are temporary with lowered spirits occurring immediately after each win.
  7. If improvement is obtained through training or counseling, attentions seems to be fixed on how much is left to do rather than any accomplishments or gains. Gains appear to be insignificant against the enormous effort required to attain the desired result.
  8. No matter what you do, you can’t get any satisfaction

Some curses cause a rapid decline and death, but the painful ones cause you to keep trying with nothing but failure as a reward.

If you feel any of this applies to you, here is the probable cause based on dozens of successful curse liftings. At some time in your past, maybe a long time ago, you did a harmful act to someone or many people and they considered this act to be totally unfair and uncalled for.

You did not just kill them, you did it in a way that gave them no dignity and diminished them as beings. For example, being killed in battle is a normal event and those killed go off and pick up new bodies in time. Being killed because your leader betrayed you can cause you to attach yourself to him forever so you can provide counter intention to everything he does from then on. This can go on for infinite lifetimes if you are determined enough.

When a person is killed and then her body parts are mistreated or befouled in some way, the victim will haunt the killer and see that his life is made miserable forever. If a village is destroyed by invaders and the victims are treated in a despicable fashion, their spirits can haunt the leader of the invading force and make his subsequent lives miserable. It will not help if the leader takes up a holy order or becomes a saint in subsequent lives, those who haunt him will not relent.

Handling a curse requires that the cursed person understand the reasons that a curse exists and then is able to locate an incident where he may have caused harm to those who are haunting him. This is actually easier than it might seem because learning why curses exist will stir up incidents which have resulted in curses. Once the incident is located, SRT processing will handle the beings involved and will result in freed beings and realizations on the part of the person cursed.

There can be more than one curse on a being as the behavior which resulted in being cursed may have occurred many times over many lifetimes. It may take several sessions before all curses are located and fully handled. Properly removing a curse must include insuring that the cursed person changes his behavior so that his destructive behavior does not continue. If he has a long history of doing despicable deeds, he may have been cursed himself or be operating off false data.

You will be able to tell when you have lifted all of the curses because the person will no longer feel hunted and will make stable gains in his SRT sessions..

How A Being Can Lose Their Knowingness

Knowingness is defined here as the ability to know.

A being has an infinite ability to know, but can be tricked into losing that knowingness and into relying on other sources for information. When that happens, from then on, the being has to consult other sources in order to know about things.

Let me restate this as an axiom: A being who has not been tampered with can know everything. In order to be tampered with, he needs to be persuaded to ignore what he is capable of knowing.

This can be accomplished with the aid of a spiritual or physical device for attracting and trapping a being’s attention.

Here are some examples of such a device:

A magic mirror which displays the viewer’s image with artificially generated responses. The being is attracted by seeing their own image and is captivated when the mirror responds to their presence with programmed responses generated by what the viewer is doing or saying. This device appears in several fairy tales, most notably the mirror used by the evil witch in the tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

There are several devices available today which perform this function. Siri, Alexa and Cortana have become the oracles of this modern age. You ask any of them for the weather report or where to buy fresh figs and they will produce answers based on their stored information.

You may well ask what is the harm when a device can produce data on demand. If you do not seek the data through direct action, how can you determine whether the data is biased or incorrect? Try asking Alexa a question about a political figure and see what kind of response you get.

Once you start relying on a machine to give you truthful answers instead of finding your own truths, you as a being have subordinated your knowingness to a programmed device with unknown inputs and purposes.

Today we have mass media organizations which are basically politically programmed channels of propaganda. If you have no other way to check the information you are receiving through these channels, you will accumulate a vast amount of biased data and your actions will be destructive to the extent that you do not or cannot verify the date you have been fed.

People in the distant past consulted oracles to learn what the future held for them. People today consult the evening news broadcast to learn the same. The talking heads may be truthful or biased, but the damage to your knowingness comes from relying on someone else’s interpretation of current events.

If you do not track down news to its original source, you will always be relying on someone else’s interpretation of events. If you have ever read a news report of something you have personally witnessed, you will have a better idea of the misinterpretation and misrepresentation that can exist for even the simplest event.

Beings have been tricked into relying on outside sources of information a very long time ago and once this habit has been established, it is very difficult to break.

If you feel you cannot know anything you set your mind to, you or your beings may still be the effect of this trick.

Let’s push this a bit further. Do you feel that you need an instructor to learn about spirits or the universe at large? Do you feel you need advice on who to vote for? Do you feel that your ability to learn is less than other people? Do you feel you need advice on what to study?

If any of these are true, you may still be the effect of an early effort to make you lose your knowingness. Find that effort and make it vanish. Your life will be very different.

You will regain your ability to know.

Exercise For Spotting Life Force Levels In Your Body

Every cell has a spiritual being or beings keeping it alive. When that spiritual being departs or is overwhelmed and loses its will to live, the cell begins to exhibit the inert condition we call death. Instead of continuing the processes that provide energy to the cell and the normal activity of the cell, the cell begins to deteriorate and other processes take over. Your body has a range of operating levels and individual signals for indicating the condition of body parts and the overall body.

You, as the overall manager of the body and its course through life are often more intent on getting the body to perform needed activities than you are on checking the condition of the body. If fact, some people are only aware of the condition of their body when it hurts. When you operate in this manner, the condition of the body is never optimum because you are letting pain be the indicator that something needs to be done. Pain is almost a binary indicator, being on or off. A more accurate indicator of the viability of your body is the life force generated by the various parts of your body.

The life force of your body and its parts can be directly observed with a little training so that you can monitor the state of your body more efficiently. Using life force as an indicator of body health provides the most sensitive indication possible.

If you wish to perceive life force levels in your body, the following exercise will get you started.

1. Relax your body and calm your mind and put your attention on your entire body

2. Slowly scan your complete body and feel the aliveness of each body part.

3. After a very short time you should start to notice differences in the way you perceive different areas of your body

4. Some areas will feel healthy and other areas may feel dead or numb.

5. Try to notice the range of aliveness of the different areas of your body

6. What parts are most alive?

7. What body parts are numb or less alive.

You may find yourself falling asleep as you do this because you have body parts that are full of unconscious spirits with very little life force. Do your best to continue the exercise even if you have to take a break to wake up.

You may find that you want to change the position of your body to allow the numb parts to have more freedom. Keep scanning your body until you have certainty on what parts are producing the least life force. The body parts and organs with the least life force will feel apathetic or sad and hopeless. The parts with a great deal of life force will feel happy or contented.

Gently acknowledge the body parts that are not happy until you feel a response. If you cannot get a response from acknowledging the value and support of the body part, run reach and withdraw on that area of the body until you are in good communication with it and know what is going on.

Reach and withdraw is a powerful action and will give you an intimate view of what is happening spiritually in that part of the body. If doing this as a solo action does not produce the needed result, get another person to help you run reach and withdraw until you spot what is actually going on in the body part that has lowered life force.
The problem may be spiritual or it may be physical requiring a diet change or medical treatment. It may be that this part of the body needs more regular exercise. No matter what is wrong, doing reach and withdraw will give you certainty on what is needed to raise the life force in that area of the body.

Repeat the above exercise daily and handle the areas of the body with the lowest levels of life force. If you make this part of your daily routine, you should be able to improve the health and fitness of your body in a significant way.

(This will appear in the new Talking to Spirits book)

How do I get started talking to spirits?

The easiest way to experience spiritual communication is to get a session from a person who has studied Spiritual Rescue Technology. The counselor will help you locate a spirit and he will begin to converse with the spiritual being. You will find unfamiliar thoughts entering your mind with every question the SRT counselor asks.

The counselor will ask you to relate the thoughts that come into your mind exactly as you receive them. and within minutes you will find yourself calmly channeling thoughts from the spirit. The counselor will ask the spirit questions to help him get oriented and you will be receiving his answers. You and the spirit and the counselor will be able to converse.

As you receive the spirits thoughts, you may also begin to receive images of the activities the spirit is describing. After a few sessions you may see what the spirit is communicating as a live action sequence of images like a video.

The images you receive can be quite startling as you are receiving the spirits memories of dramatic moments and strong emotions. The first time you see a spirit in full colonial dress complete in all details, you will begin to understand the amount of data that becomes available when you can talk to spirits.

Since spirits are immortal and have been around for very long times, you will get images of unrecorded history that will tempt you to study ancient history and ancient legends.

Once you have a reality on spiritual communication, you will be encouraged to communicate with spirits on your own. The easiest way to do these solo sessions is to sit down and meditate for a moment until you are calm and in present time. Then take a pen and paper and ask the spirits what you want to know.

If you start with simple questions like, “Is there anything you would like to share with me?” You will be amazed at the thoughts that start running through your mind. Write them down as you receive them and be sure to acknowledge that you have heard and understood. This ancient process is called spirit writing and has been used by authors and other writers for hundreds of years. If you ask your questions in a caring way, you will get answers almost every time. If you are impatient or authoritative, you may not get any answers at all.

The real secret to this simple process is that when beings see you writing their thoughts down on paper, it is a huge acknowledgment that they exist. Some are so grateful for the opportunity to express themselves, they may go on expressing themselves for many pages.

When I am writing articles like this one, I exchange ideas with my spiritual companions for some time until we are in agreement on what we want to say. Then when I start typing, the ideas come to me in a steady flow with occasional corrections as we decide to change things on the fly.

As you get used to working with your helpful spirits, you will find that they will send you a steady stream of bright ideas and comments about everything even when you are not writing. In actual fact, most of the time these spiritual companions have been trying to communicate with you for years and only occasionally have been able to break through because you did not recognize whose thoughts they were. Once you get in good communication with your spirits, you will never lack for good ideas again.

Increasing Your Ability To Create

You may think that you have been a creative individual, but that is not the entire story! You are a composite personality and each part of that personality is a unique being who has been working in concert with you or against you for many years. If you have been able to create, it has been with the help of, or in spite of the hindrance of spirits.

In order for a group to create results on demand, the members of the group need to be in agreement and operate in alignment. You are a composite personality and some parts of your personality are beings who do not even know each other exist! We have seen proof of this in session after session.

If you have ever tried to work with a disorganized group to get things done, you probably have had enough bad experiences to make you wary of doing things in a group you could not control. Trying to get a random group of people to agree on a particular course of action? Sheer chaos!

Trying to get any nonaligned group of people to work together is difficult. The armies of the world have worked on this problem for centuries and their solutions produce uniform physical actions, but do not lead to creativity.

Getting a group of individuals to subscribe to a common purpose has been done for eons by churches and cults, but the indoctrination required stifles creativity.

Creativity by a group requires an understanding of overall goals and alignment of purpose while embracing contributions by individual members based on their past contributions. The group must be able to communicate on various channels simultaneously while the overall direction should be managed by one individual with subordinates handling separate responsibilities.

Project teams in corporations have managed to accomplish creative tasks with enough efficiency that the concept is still well regarded although aligning the project to an overall exterior goal has been a long standing issue. The problems usually stem from insufficient open communication between upper management and the project team.

You may ask what this has to do with your ability to create results in life? As a composite personality, you have a group of beings who give you advice and influence your behavior and even affect every decision you make in life. Their actions and advice are based on experiences they received many lifetime ago and these experiences may have little relationship to what you are experiencing now.

Unlike you, the beings who surround you are not operating in present time. They are observing your challenges from an 12th century viewpoint or a 1940’s viewpoint and their suggestions may not relate to the problems you are trying to solve.

If you find yourself thinking, “I don’t know if I can do this!” or “This is boring” or “I’ll show them!” you have helpers from another time and place.

When you are uneasy when meeting someone new or unwilling to call someone to make an appointment for a meeting, you have beings who are fearful because of their past experiences and you are misowning their emotions.

It is very hard to be creative if you fear failure, because creative efforts are just one failure after another until you get it right. If your spiritual companions are afraid of failure, and most are, they will make it very difficult to keep on creating when things don’t work out the first time.

Creating new things is one of the most exciting things a person can do. A person will normally be in enthusiasm or strong interest while doing this. If you are not in this high emotional range, you have low toned spiritual beings who are interfering with you.

If, in the middle of a project you feel fear or doubt or apathy, you need to handle the beings who are being triggered by your creativity. If you feel you need to take a break and watch TV, you probably have beings who are doing their best to distract you. If you are worried about finishing on time or doing the right thing, you need to handle the spirits who are being triggered by your current situation.

Once you handle the upset beings with SRT processing, you will find that your progress increases markedly.

This is not the end of the story however. If you communicate with your helpful spirits in daily solo sessions, you will find that they have helpful suggestions that you should listen to. You should feel free to encourage them but you will also need to let them know what your overall goal is so their suggestions align with what you need to accomplish .

If you continue to recognize helpful suggestions and warnings and acknowledge the beings who are originating them, you will find that other beings will start contributing helpful suggestions and your creative work will become easier almost without effort.

You can, of course, ignore all of this advice and do your creative work without acknowledging the bright ideas from others, but you may find that the creative process gets harder and harder as time goes on and you will suffer what people call, “creative burnout”.

You and your spiritual helpers should never experience burnout. If you acknowledge your spiritual teammates for helping you create, their contributions increase over time and their morale does also.

Don’t set yourself up for burnout. Get your team working in alignment and creative activity will be an absolute joy.
