Healing Corner For Parents And Children

 Part 1

This part of my writings is dedicated to parents and children of all ages. The inspiration behind bringing the various items together arose from witnessing the often extreme difficulties parents and children are experiencing when the need arises for letting go of each other. As I am no exception to this, I know from first hand experience how important it is to gain a better understanding of the true roles both parties are meant to play towards each other, whilst in physicality.

I believe that this is too vital an issue to be ignored by anyone, even for those who do not have any children of their own. After all, we are all someone’s child! Should you however be one of those lucky ones who have never had any problems with the issues that arise in parent/child relationships maybe you know someone who has. For anyone who would like to print this item for sharing with family members, friends or maybe clients, I am willing to send this whole section as a file attachment from which it can be printed. Please go to the Contact page and get in touch with me.

The Truth About Parents

c

I am the Great White Spirit, Your true Father/Mother.
Each one of you is My Child.
Although some of you are as yet unaware of this,
I know all of you and everything about you and your lives.
 I am with you always.
Whenever you sit down or get up,
Upon rising in the morning and going to sleep at night,
I am there.

I am familiar with all your ways.
Every hair on your head is numbered and precious,
The same as every flower that blossoms
And every leaf that trembles in the wind. 
You are My child and I created you in My image.
I am in you and you are in Me.
There is nothing outside Me or beyond My reach.
Your whole being is part of Me,
As much as I am part of you.
 
I knew you long before you were conceived into this lifetime.
You have been with Me since before the creation of any worlds.
All your days are written by Me in the great book of life
And your present existence on the Earth plane is no mistake.
I am the One who determines the exact time of your birth,
Where you are going to live and which lessons
You will have to learn in any one of your lifetimes.

You are a miracle and a wonder,
And I was the one who, inside your mother’s womb,
Created your present body for you.
You are not of her or from her and you do not belong to her.
You merely came through her and you belong to Me.
Throughout the whole course of your evolution thus far,
I have been with you.
At the right moment, no matter when this may have been,
 I brought you into this world.
I was with you when you were born and I accompany you,
Each time you depart from the earthly plane
And return into the world of light, your true home.

All too often in the past, I have been misunderstood
And misinterpreted – unintentionally but also deliberately –
By you, my human children of the Earth.
This is changing now and ever more of you are
Reawakening to the conscious knowledge of
Their own true nature and Mine.
My love for you is total and unconditional.
Because I love you, I could never be distant or angry with you.
I live inside you – every cell and atom of your physical body
Is filled with Me and My love for you.

This is My way of guiding, protecting and lavishing My love onto
All who willingly pay attention to Me,
Their very own small still voice of conscience within,
Following My calling from within their own heart.
Everything in your life is there only because
It is My will that it should be so.
I have always given you more than earthly parents could ever do.
It is not their predestined role in your life to do the same.
Never expect them to do for you what can only be done by Me,
For I am the perfect parents all of you long and yearn for,
Your true Father/Mother.

Your gifts and talents are your own.
They are not inherited from your parents and ancestors.
They were bestowed upon you by Me, the same as
I constantly meet all your needs. You are the one
Who worked with them and developed them to their present state.
As I love my human children totally, unconditionally and eternally,
My plan for the future of your race has forever been one of hope. 
My creative ideas for you and your world are as countless
And beautiful as the grains of sand on the shores of your oceans.
 
When you are singing, I rejoice and sing with you.
When you are happy, I am glad.
And when you are sad and lonely, so am I.
You are my treasured possession and I will never do anything
That in the final analysis is not good for you.
All your experiences are to help you grow ever more heaven-tall,
To become like Me and fully one again with Me, the way you once were.

I wish to guide each one of you into performing miracles
And doing great and wondrous works.
Those who seek Me, I draw towards Me.
I live in your heart, from where I guide you
And tell you the difference between right and wrong,
Good and evil, falseness and truth.
Love Me with all your heart and soul, with your whole being,
Because I am the One who fulfils all your desires,
So that you may learn from them;
That is why I place them inside your heart in the first place.

In Me all things are possible
And with My help, all conditions can be healed.
With My faith in you and yours in Me,
Mountains of unbelief can be moved and crooked corners made straight.
Life never goes back. It is for all time evolving and moving forwards.
That’s why I ask you to pay attention to every moment of your life.
Refuse to look back, trust the goodness of the life I have created for you,
Accept that it is impossible to go back
And trustingly put one foot in front of the other,
Safe in the knowledge that I am showing you the way.

Know that you are never alone and do not wait until things
Get too rough for you to cope on your own.
Reach out for the blessing, healing and helping hands of
The Angels and Me and let us show you the way.
When in distress, call for Me.
I am the Comforter who comes to you in all your troubles.
When you suffer, I suffer with you.
The more broken-hearted you are, the closer I draw to you.
As a shepherd carries a lamb, I hold each one of you close to My heart.
Times are changing and the day will soon come when
There will no longer be the need for Earth’s suffering.
I am waiting for you to call upon Me to wipe the tears from your eyes
And to heal the wounds of all your lifetimes.

I, your Father/Mother, love each one of you the way
I once revealed to you and your world
Through the legend of Jesus, the Christed one.
His love for humankind was but a reflection and a mere shadow
Of My all encompassing love for you, My beloved children of the Earth.
The legend was given to teach you the nature of My love.
It is total and unconditional, true, unchangeable and eternal.
From this love you, My offspring, were created – it is your true nature.
Because I love you, I am for you and never against you.
I do not count your sins and mistakes,
But I expect you to learn from them and make every effort
To do better next time.
Whether you do or do not, I always forgive you.

The Master’s death on the Cross was a demonstration
To you and your world of the fact that in truth there is no death.
The cross is the oldest symbol known to humankind
Of your earthly sojourns and the Jesus legend
Is a demonstration of how the small and frightened
Earthly self of each one of you must eventually be
Sacrificed and nailed to the cross of earthly life.
Only then can your spirit rise above it
And once again be fully reunited with Me.

This is why I have said to you all along:
‘Listen to and follow the wisdom My gifts of wisdom and truth
I once gave to your world through the stories of the Masters
Who from time to time appeared in your world,
Not merely the one of the Master Jesus but all of them.
The Heavens are celebrating that you and your world
At long last are in the process of shedding
The clouds of darkness and fear of the past that were
Caused by your ignorance of your true nature.
The shadows they have been casting for such a long time
Are in the process of dissolving into the fresh knowledge
That is currently pouring ever more powerfully
Into the collective consciousness of your race,
directly from Me.

Rejoice, My beloved children of the Earth!
For this is your homecoming into the oneness with Me.
Nothing could ever separate any one of you from Me and My love,
For I am Your true Father/Mother
And no earthly parents could ever love you the way I do.
Be still and know that I am alive in you.
I always have been and always will be.
I never left you and I never will.

I, Your loving Father/Mother, am waiting for the call of
All who are ready to receive Me.

What Do Our Children Learn At School?

Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - What Do Our Children Learn At School?

Well, what do they learn?
That two and two make four,
And Paris is the Capital of France,
But where and when are they going to learn
Who and what all of us truly are?
Why don’t we ourselves ask them:
‘Do you know who you are?’
When they say they don’t know, tell them
‘You are a unique marvel – every human being is.
There is no-one in the whole of Creation,
Who is exactly like you or me.

What’s more, during all the millions of years
That have come and gone, since humankind
First appeared on the Earth,
In the long course of its evolution,
And however many more years of this are still to come,
There has never been another being like you and me,
And there never will be.

Humankind eagerly searches for miracles and
Loves to dig deep into all kinds of mysteries.
Why then is it so hard for us to recognise
That we are the greatest mystery of all and
That the physical bodies each one of us is living in
Is one of the greatest wonders of our world?
This means every one of us has been born
Into their own private marvel.
Take a good look at your whole body,
Your arms, hands and fingers, legs, feet and toes.
See how cleverly everything moves and works together?
It’s nothing short of a magnificent work of art and
A masterpiece of engineering.
Don’t you think that’s worthy of calling a miracle, my child?

As you grow up, you will sometimes be in danger
Of despairing about the state of our world.
I say: ‘Don’t!’ You are here to do your share
Of making it a better place for all its lifeforms.
We humans are allowed freedom of choice
And this includes our behaviour.
Yours, the same as mine and everybody else’s,
Is never accidental, but chosen.
It is up to us how we react to those around us
And which way we behave, at any given moment.
When finally everybody knows this and acts on their knowledge,
Everybody’s behaviour will always be a conscious choice.
We shall then have freed ourselves and our world
From the ignorance of many lifetimes with which
All of us together created the present conditions in our world.

This is not an easy task because each one of us has
Brought into their present lifetime
Many thinking and behaviour patterns
From previous ones, which by now have become so
Deeply ingrained in our consciousness
That shedding them is difficult.
Yet, it can and has to be done.
Rejoice, my child, you have been born at a good time,
A time of transformation and renewal of the Earth
And all its inhabitants.
This is our opportunity for helping to bring into being
A new world that comes ever closer to the visions
We can at present see only in our dreams:
A world where all live together in peace and harmony,
Where violence, cruelty and unkindness are no longer known.
Hold onto this mental picture, think about it often and know
Deep down in your heart that one day it will come true.

As I told you earlier, we have been given freedom of choice
And that in truth is the only real freedom we earthlings have.
Life constantly presents us with choices and it’s
Of the greatest importance that you, my child,
Learn to choose wisely and strive to be true to your real self.
Our Divine Mother/Father wants us to grow and evolve
Into ever more beautiful beings
And that is the only way this is possible.
Everybody’s potential is unlimited and we have the right
To aim for becoming someone like one of your ideals,
Maybe Mother Theresa, Saint Joan of Arc,
Shakespeare, Michelangelo or Beethoven.

Each one of us living in their own physical body
Creates the illusion that we are all separate from each other.
Don’t allow this to fool you, my child,
As nothing could be further from the truth.
All life is one big family and on the inner level
In spirit we are all one.
Because of this, when we hurt one,
We hurt everybody, including ourselves.
Knowing that and also that each is a miracle
And a unique marvel, just like you are, my child,
Could you ever hurt or harm another?

Life is a precious gift and you have received this lifetime
So that you may learn that we are all on the Earth
For good and wise reasons, and that is
Learning, individually and as a race,
To love wisely, to cherish, help and support each other.
We are all responsible for ourselves and our world.
We need to work together and everybody has to do their own bit
Of making our world a better place for everything that shares it with us;
A world that is worthy of all its children, including humankind.
For all of us are the beloved children of the
Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
And their only born Son, the Light of all lights,
And the Sun behind and above all Suns.

About Children

Children at play - About Children, Kahlil Gibran - Rays of Wisdom

A woman held her babe against her bosom and said:
‘Speak to us of children’,
And the Prophet replied: ‘Your children are not your children;
They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing to experience itself.
Your children come through you, but they are
Neither of you nor from you;
And although for a time, they are with you,
They do not belong to you.
You may give them your love, but not your thoughts,
For they have to think their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies, but not their souls,
Because they dwell in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
But you will visit it again, when you return to Earth
As a child in future lifetimes.
 
You may strive to be like them;
Be young and see your world through the eyes of a child again,
But do not seek to make them like you,
For life neither goes backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which life sends forth Its children
As living arrows.

The Divine Archer alone can see their mark and yours
Upon the path of the Infinite.
With His might he bends each one of you into shape,
So that all His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the Archer’s hand be with gladness;
For as much as He loves the arrow that flies,
He loves the bow that is stable.

He particularly loves parents, who give their children roots to grown in
And the freedom to fly when their time has come to do so;
Who as their children grow up, slowly step back and set them free,
Encouraging them to learn from their own experiences,
And to dream their own dreams;
Who do all they can to help their children
To fulfil their own highest potential, not their parents’.

The Archer loves wise parents and teachers,
Who tell the children in their care that they are the children of God
And that therefore one is as precious and unique as the other;
Who respect them because they know that even when a child is still living
In a smaller body than their own, it has nonetheless
Come into our world as a fully developed soul and spirit in its own right,
Who may have a long history of evolution behind it
That could have taken more lifetimes than those of its parents.

Wise parents tell their offspring that they are certainly not some kind
Of appendix of theirs and that they have come into this life
To learn, evolve and grow some more through their own experiences,
The same as they are doing and will always continue to do.
When their children go to school, they point out to them that they are
Learning for themselves and for life itself,
Not only for this lifetime, but for Eternity.
They explain to them the laws of the Universe and that because of this,
Whatever anyone sends out to life has to return to them.
And they teach by their good example that it is necessary
To have some input into this life, before one can expect
To get anything of value from it.

Sunrise, Sunset - Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner for Parents and Children

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don’t remember growing older
When did they?

When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn’t it yesterday
When they were small?

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming, even as we gaze.

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly fly the years.
One season following another,
Laden with happiness and tears.

What words of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their way?
Now they must learn from one another,
Day by day.

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly fly the years.,
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears.

Letting Go

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - Letting Go
 
Letting go has many implications.
It does not mean we no longer care for others,
We merely refuse to do for them
What they should be doing themselves.
It does not mean cutting ourselves off from loved ones,
But realising that we have no right to control them.
It means focussing on the experiences of our own life,
Making an effort to learn from them as much as possible.
There’s no harm in accepting that in many situations
We are powerless in any case,
Because their outcome lies in God’s hands.

Letting go does not mean
Trying to change others and piling blame onto them for anything,
When for us the time has come to
Change our own thinking and behaviour patterns,
To enable us to become
The captain of the ship of our own destiny,
Encouraging others to do the same for themselves.

Letting go does not mean
Caring for someone, but caring about them.
Fixing things for others,
But letting them do for themselves,
So they can learn from the mistakes they make
Along the pathway of their life,
Whilst we stand by to support them,
Should a genuine need for it arise.
Yet being supportive and standing by.
Judging anyone and loving them the way they are,
With whatever flaws and shortcomings we see in them.
Trying to be centre stage and pretending
To be able to arrange the outcome of things for others,
But encouraging them to come to their own conclusions
And make their own decisions,
As that’s the only way human beings can learn
How to take charge of the development
Of their character and through this of their destiny.

Letting go does not mean
Indoctrinating others, but encouraging them
To develop their own perception and through this build up
Their faith in God and the basic goodness of the life
All of us have been given and the roles we are playing in it.
Denying the things that come our way,
Without attempting to adjust them to our desire,
But accepting them gracefully and giving thanks for them.
Going with the flow and making the most of every day.

Letting go is not about
Regretting the past, but learning from the mistakes
We make along our predestined pathway through life,
Thinking with gratitude of those who helped us
To grow and evolve and become the way we are now,
That our wisdom and understanding has increased sufficiently,
So we can do our share of
Blessing and healing humankind and our whole world,
Thus being an active and conscious participant of
Establishing God’s Kingdom on the Earth and
Creating a happier and more secure future for everybody.

Letting go shows that we trust:
God’s great plan and the small plan for our life within it;
The basic goodness of life and the love
That once brought us into being;
That the Universe knows what’s really good for us,
And constantly provides for all of us
Only that which serves our highest good and greatest joy.
This knowledge sets us free to fear less and
To love more freely and from the heart.

Letting go proves that:
We are happy that our life, the same as everybody else’s,
Rests safely in the loving hands of God and the Angels;
We know that others, like us,
Need to be encouraged to make their own mistakes,
As that’s the only way human beings in earthly life
Can grow and make the evolutionary progress that is
The reason for our being together in our present existence.

The Universe rewards wise ones who endeavour to let go of outdated
Beliefs and prejudices about themselves and their role in life
By making it easier to let go on other levels, too.
The more we become aware that our children are not truly
Our children and our earthly parents not our real parents,
The easier letting go of each other becomes.
This realisation of this sets both parties free
To be true to their real nature and love the way
God loves each and every one of us,
His/Her children of the Earth,
Totally, unconditionally and with detachment.

This kind of love does not hold on.
It sets loved ones free,
So they can grow through their own experiences,
Each in their own way and at their own pace.
Learning to love this way is the ultimate purpose
Of every human being’s earthly existence.
When we have learnt to forgive whatever happens,
Because we understand the wise higher purpose behind it,
We are becoming ever more God-like ourselves.

And the sooner we come to terms with that:
Everything in earthly life is a gift from the Highest Forces,
Borrowed and on loan for a certain time only.
Nothing truly belongs to us, especially not people.
The only thing that’s truly ours is our consciousness,
That which we are on the innermost level of our being
And not what we have,
The easier it gets to set ourselves and others free.

All Of Life Is Flowingness

Rays of Wisdom - Words Of Wisdom For Friendship Healing - All Of Life Is Flowingness

All of life is flowingness
And in this flowing
There is meaning and law.
I trust God’s great plan of life
And my own within it.
Therefore:
I cannot lose what is my own and
I need not seek what is my own,
For what belongs to me will come and
Whatever goes does not belong to me.

Only what I am has power
And everything that’s rightfully mine
Is constantly drawn to me and
Will appear at the right moment.
Knowing this, I give up
All personal struggle and ambition.
I let go and trust the inner guidance
Of my Highest Self and the Universal Forces
To show me the way and
Run my life for me.

The Transmutation Of Karma

Transmutation of Karma - Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner for Parents & Children

The essence of White Eagle ‘Spiritual Unfoldment 4 – Sayings of the Gentle Brother’: ‘It is so easy to judge the actions of others, but endeavour to refrain from judgment. Because of your oneness on the inner level, whenever you are condemning others you are in truth doing it to yourself. Strive to be tolerant and let flow from your heart the gentle spirit of the master soul the Jesus legend portrayed. Jesus is a symbolism for the archetypal Christ, your own Christ nature, a master soul who in women and men alike can only be made whole and perfect through everyone’s own efforts.

‘The story how a highly evolved and perfected soul would behave in earthly life when it incarnates there is a demonstration of what can be attained when you simply follow the example of the gentle and loving ways of Jesus, one of the many symbols of the Universal Christ.

‘Forgive, dear children of the Earth, forgive. Whatever is in your heart, whichever way you may feel towards anyone, possibly with justification according to the standards of earthly life, pray to forgive, just like the Jesus legend teaches in the Lord’s Prayer: ‘Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.’ Know that in forgiving others you are releasing yourself. So long as you sit in judgment over others and refuse to forgive, the Universal laws will bring the same back to you, as all life is ruled by these laws which say: ‘As you give, so you receive.’ Therefore, as soon as you feel forgiveness that comes from your heart and soul, you are releasing each other from the bondage of your joint Karma.

‘Karma is transmuted when you learn to think and act with love from the spiritual aspect of your own nature. The Jesus story points the way. All of you are on the Earth plane to learn how to live like a true Master who is all compassion and kindness, gentleness and love. The legend tells us that Jesus looked into the soul of his friends, of all who drew close to him and saw their suffering, more than merely that of the presence. He could see their whole evolutionary pathway, their Karma and what made them behave the way they did. The tale of the Master shows you how to react to people and life in general with compassion and forgiveness.

‘This is often difficult, but as soon as forgiveness enters the human heart, the spirit and soul that for a very long time has been in bondage and stretched upon the cross of suffering is released and set free. So, look into people’s hearts, love them and forgive.’

The Barren Fig Tree

The Barren Fig Tree - Rays of Wisdom - Astrology on the Healing JourneySt Luke 13:6-9 of the Jesus legend contains the following parable: ‘A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard. When he came seeking fruit on it, he found none. So he said to the labourer: `Behold, for three years I have been coming and seeking fruit on this fig tree and I find none. Cut it down. Why should the ground be wasted?’ The labourer replied: ‘My lord, let it remain for this year also, until I work and fertilise it. It might bear fruit and if not, you can cut it down.’

Apparently the meaning of this tale has remained a puzzle to devout Christians, who still believe that every word of the Bible is from God and true and therefore has to be understood literally. Yet, for anyone in search of the esoteric truths that are hidden behind the surface words of all sacred texts, this parable and the tree itself provide invaluable clues to the origin of all wisdom contained not only in the Bible but also in its forerunner, the Torah of Judaism. The Jewish scriptures once emerged from various regions of the Middle Eastern countries of antiquity, where many religions proliferated. From them over time grew the Torah, which was followed by the Bible and after a while by Islam’s Koran. Although the two new religions adopted parts of the Torah into their teachings, each also presented a new part to our world.

In the Middle East  the fig tree has always been an essential part of the support of life. Because of this it is hardly surprising that it was chosen to represent not only one of the major symbols of life but also the Tree of Life. Through this the fig tree and its product, the fig leaf, crept into the Western versions of the Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam – through the backdoor, so to speak. The fig leaf in Genesis represents knowledge acquired from the tree of life. With the help of the first small piece they each picked, just one leaf each, Adam and Eve, are leaving paradise, a symbolism for the pre-conscious state of our oneness with God. With the leaves they cover their nudity, a metaphor for their lack of self-knowledge, self-awareness and understanding, their ignorance of themselves and also their innocence. Adam stands for the human spirit, masculine. He is accompanied by his female counterpart, Eve, the human soul, who leave paradise together.

Every individual life, each one of us, is a shoot of the great Tree of Life and the parable of the barren fig tree appears as a warning to our whole world. It carries the message that no matter what anyone’s beliefs may be in any given lifetime, unless a measure of learning and spiritual progress is a achieved, a lifetime can be a completely wasted one. The barren fig tree is a symbolism for all who insist on spending the whole of their present lifetime pursuing purely earthly pleasures and material gains of this, that and the other kind.

To the wise ones in charge of humankind, the biblical references to the fig tree and its products all along were intended to act merely as teaching aids. In the time and place where the tale originated its meaning could easily be understood by the general public. That’s why the story of the Master, and many others who long before served the same purpose in our world, used the same metaphors. In the days of yore, the easiest way of explaining spiritual concepts was with the help of things people were familiar with and whose importance they understood, for example that of the fig tree. However, when these ideas were later transferred and translated into words for the consumption of Western minds, their original meaning was lost.

How, without explaining why this should be so, was the mass of people in that world to know that no human life, like the fig tree, should be entirely bereft of good thoughts, words and deeds and therefore wholly unproductive? Our spiritual teachers could not tell us what is required from every human soul on the Earth plane, because they themselves were left in the dark about such things. So, how could we, the ordinary people, guess that the gift of another lifetime is only granted to human souls in the hope that it will bring forth some more of the rich harvest of the fruits that grow on the tree of life in the form of wisdom and understanding? That’s why it took us such a long time to find out that the only way this tree can yield its fruit to anyone is through endeavouring to learn something from every experience.

But even if we choose to waste a whole lifetime with fooling about, nobody is going to sit in judgement over us or condemns us. However, when we leave our present existence and return to our true home, the world of spirit, we ourselves together with the wise ones in charge of us, review our most recent lifetime and all previous ones. Every one of our performances thus far, good and bad, positive and negative alike, are laid into the scales of justice. Those who have failed to grow in wisdom and understanding through their experiences, either because of laziness or maybe just ignorance of the true purpose of their existence, are in for a rude awakening at that time. They will then be able to see for themselves how many of the growth opportunities of their past lifetime were disregarded and maybe even thoughtlessly thrown away.

However, this in itself is by no means a wasted experience. Souls who have done this are unlikely to ever forget that life on Earth is an institution for learning and growing. They will then know and take full advantage of the fact that earthly life is the only place where negative character traces can be changed into positive ones, and weaknesses converted into strengths. Having grown much wiser, they appreciate that only through freely exploring the negative and darkest aspects of our nature in past lifetimes, we ourselves brought it about that wisdom and understanding, the fruits of the tree of life, to this day are mostly gathered through suffering.

This too is meant to change. That’s why the Universe places the tools for bringing forth the highest, noblest and best that is in us into every soul’s own hands and encourages us to develop them to their highest potential. As ever more of us live by and obey the Universal laws, the darkness of our present level of existence is gradually dissolving. The more one finds out about the true purpose of life on the material plane, the more one feels inclined to approach all life with reverence and gratitude for the great wisdom and love that provides everything for us and brings all things into being.

The Budding Fig Tree

The Budding Fig Tree - Rays of Wisdom - Astrology on the Healing JourneySt Luke 21:29-33, as well as St Matthew 24:32-35 and St Mark 13:28-31, brings us a parable about a budding fig tree. Here the Master tells his disciples: ‘Look at the fig tree and all other trees. When they put forth leaves, you immediately understand by them that summer is near. Even so, when these things happen you also know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all these things happen. Heaven and Earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.’

As pointed out in the previous chapter, how can anyone be expected to understand both the stories of the barren and the budding fig tree without knowing the original meaning of the rich symbolism that hides behind the outer surface of the words? I see the labourer in the vineyard as a metaphor for the wise ones in charge of us, our Angels, Masters and guides in the world of light. To me, the life of each one of us is an offshoot of the parent tree, the Tree of Life. When, in God’s time, the winter of the existence of all saplings, i.e. young and inexperienced souls struggling with their lack of comprehension and ignorance, is over they grow into spiritual adulthood.

Spring approaches and buds begin to appear on the little trees. They grow bigger and bigger until one fine day they burst open and lo and behold! Leaves unfold that are exactly like those of the Tree of Life. in just the same way, each leaf on the tree of life and its youngsters represents a small amount of God’s sacred wisdom and truth. When such leaves at long last unfold in every heart and soul on the Earth plane and God’s children of the Earth conduct their lives in accordance with the wisdom they are finding, God’s Kingdom on the Earth will have come. Through this parable the Universal Christ lets us know that, although our understanding of the concepts of Heaven and Earth pass away – change – with the better understanding we are finding, the ancient wisdom of God’s truth behind the words of this parable and all others is indeed eternal and will never pass away.

The man in the barren fig tree clearly is a symbolism for the Highest. Now, had the words of the Bible, including those of the tales of the fig trees, really been written by God, rather than scribes under the orders of the elders of the early Christian church, wouldn’t the man have said: ‘Behold, for three years I have been coming and seeking fruit on this fig tree and I find none. But, do not cut it down. It shall remain for another year and be given another chance. You work and fertilise it, so that it too can bear fruit and there will never be any need for getting rid of it.’? After all, it was God who in His/Her great wisdom and immense thoughtfulness brings all life into being. God is love and the motivation for the universal laws, especially the law of Karma, is love because it ensures that no spirit and soul will ever be truly lost in the vastness of space and time.

Only when each one of us has been reconnected and is fully one again with their Highest Self, and when the buds of truth like those of our parent tree are sprouting on us to bring God’s sacred wisdom and truth directly from the heartmind of God into every soul’s own, the Kingdom will establish itself ever more firmly on the Earth. When everybody refuses to hurt or harm in thoughts, words and actions anybody and anything, and all of us project nothing but loving thoughts into the collective consciousness, the Kingdom truly has arrived and there will be peace on the Earth and goodwill to all, as prophesied a long, long time ago.

The Rich Harvest

The Rich Harvest of the Fig Tree - Rays of Wisdom - Astrology on the Healing JourneyThat’s what awaits all human souls who willingly accept their experiences in physicality as lessons and who strive to learn something from each one of them. To view our earthly existence from the right perspective and gratefully accept the many gifts the Universe constantly brings us, one only has to open one’s inner eyes. No matter how hard our lessons may appear to be sometimes, if we but grow through them in wisdom and understanding, our consciousness expands. This is the only way human souls can make progress on their evolutionary pathway.

If we did deny ourselves the learning every experience contains, what would be the point of being here at all? As the law of life demands evolution from all of its creatures, great and small, in the long run this is impossible in any case. Attending to our duties as God’s children of the Earth is the only way any one of us can hope to ever find its way back home into the oneness with God. The return to it at the end of its long evolutionary journey is every soul’s birthright and the reward for all the struggles that had to be encountered along the way.

Clearly, there is every point in attending diligently to our life lessons. There is nothing for it but shouldering them resolutely and focussing our vision on what lies ahead, individually and collectively. With the awareness of what life truly is all about and living ever more in harmony with the Universal laws, Earth’s suffering will eventually run out of steam and cease altogether. Each one of us will get there in due course, of that I am sure. But let’s face it, without bravely facing and tackling all our experiences, getting to know the accompanying feelings and dealing with them in the appropriate manner, we would never have found any of the wisdom that’s already ours. Now, wouldn’t that be a pity?

So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get on with our studies. Souls who refuse to do so, for whatever reasons, cannot grow. They stagnate and are in danger of wasting one of their precious lifetimes. However, as nothing in the whole of creation is ever lost or wasted, upon their return into the world of spirit the wise ones in charge of them will help them to realise this. They will be painfully aware of what they have missed and that’s how dallying souls receive one of their most valuable lessons ever, which they will never forget. In coming lifetimes they will remember and at long last seriously buckle down to what lies before them.

Do Not Judge

Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - Do Not Judge

Do not find fault with those who limp
Or stumble along the road,
Unless you have worn the shoes they wear
And struggled under their load.

There may be tacks in their shoes that hurt
That are hidden from your view,
And if their cross was on your back,
It might cause you to stumble, too.

Don’t sneer at anyone who is down today,
Unless you have experienced the blow
That caused their fall or felt the shame
That only the fallen know.

You may be strong, but if the blows
They received were dealt to you,
In the same way,
You might stagger, too.

Don’t be harsh with those who sin
Or pelt them with words and stones,
Unless you are sure, yes doubly sure,
That you have no sins of your own.

For who knows, if your lower self’s voice
Whispered as sweetly to you,
As it did to them, when they went astray,
It might cause you to falter, too.

Wise ones count their blessings
And thank their lucky stars for no longer
Needing lessons of this nature.
Aware that every one of  their
Thoughts, words and actions
Travels round in a circle and returns to them,
Enriched with more of what’s been sent out,
They abstain from judging others,
For they do not wish their vibrations to attract
People with judgemental attitudes
Into their orbit.

Healing Prayer For Parents And Children

Forgiveness From The Heart

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - Forgiveness From The Heart

It makes no difference whether someone we would like to make peace with is in our world or has already moved on into the spirit realm. Because on the inner level of life all is one and there is no separation between anything, forgiving and healing that relationship through making peace is always possible. It probably works better from a distance and in our thoughts than face to face. Here are some suggestions of how to approach the matter.

O Great Spirit, Mother/Father Creator,
Grant me the gift of Your Divine wisdom and forgiveness,
So that I may pardon each and every one
Who ever hurt or wounded me, including myself.
Help me to forgive every cruelty and unkindness
That was ever done to me by anyone, in word, thought and deed.
With hindsight, I can see that all who treated me this way
Supplied me with a special service and were my best teachers,
Because they all helped me to become the one I am now,
And for that, Great Spirit, I truly am thankful.

Thank you for showing us that each one of us is Your child
Whom You have granted the gift of another lifetime on the Earth,
So that we should learn and grow some more,
Each through their own experiences.
Thank you for the Angels, Masters and guides who are
Protecting us and lighting the way back home into the oneness with You.
I rejoice to know that we are all children in the great school of life,
Which You so lovingly have created for us.

I pray for Your forgiveness for the mistakes I have made,
Throughout this whole lifetime and all previous ones.
Help me to draw the learning from them,
So that I may bring forth all that is good and noble within me,
Finding wholeness and healing through becoming
Ever more like You and being closer to You.

As the road of this earthly life is long and difficult
And strewn with many kinds of temptations
Which my earthly self finds hard to resist,
Assist me with being strong in my determination to overcome them.
Help me to accept and love myself the way I am,
Safe in the knowledge that Your great wisdom and love
Created me – and everybody else – in Your Divine image,
And that you love us all totally and unconditionally.

To break the vicious circle of acting against my own best interests
And of being my own worst enemy,
When it comes to solving any problem, help me
To listen to Your help and guidance that comes
From deep within my own heart, where You dwell.
Help me to stop finding fault with myself and those around me,
But to love and accept myself and them they way we are.
Whenever I encounter difficulties, especially in relationships,
Grant me the gift of the ability to first look to myself to resolve them.

Now that I understand that the purpose of life on Earth
Is growth and evolution that leads each and every one of us
To ever higher levels of consciousness,
And knowing that all my experiences only ever happened
Because they meant to teach me something,
I let go of all resentment and grudges I ever
Bore against anyone, including myself.

Help me, Great Spirit, to love wisely, the way You do,
Myself and everything that comes my way,
Knowing that it is part of Your Creation,
That it has been prepared by Your great wisdom and love.
Help us all to dissolve the chains and shackles of Karma that
Have bound us to each other, for so many lifetimes,
So that we may set ourselves and each other free
From the bondages that were created
By the darkness of the ignorance of our true nature of past Ages.

Help us to free our world from all hatred, resentment, envy and greed,
And to fill us and it with Your Divine Wisdom, Power and Love.
My soul yearns to make peace with You and all life,
Because I now so much better understand
You and the processes of the life
You created for us.

* * *

Help me to forgive the mother of this lifetime for any unlovingness
She has shown towards me, knowingly or unknowingly, especially . . .
[Now pour your pain into God, who understands the way of all things]
Help me to forgive her for the times she failed to provide me with
The deep and fully satisfying Mother’s nurturing
That only You, my Divine Mother, can give to any of Your children.
Help me to forgive myself for expecting
Such love from someone who is merely human,
Like myself and who is, therefore, but one of your children,
On her own pathway of evolution and therefore still imperfect.

Help me to forgive the father of this lifetime for any unlovingness
He has shown towards me, knowingly or unknowingly, especially . . .
[Now pour your pain into God, who does understand]
Help me to forgive him for the times he failed to provide me with
The deep and fully satisfying Father’s love,
Forgiveness and understanding that You alone, my Divine Father,
Can feel towards all my efforts.
Help me to forgive myself for expecting
Such love from one who is merely human,
Like myself and who is, therefore, but one of your children,
On his own pathway of evolution and still imperfect.

Help me to forgive my partner for any unlovingness
S/he showed towards me, during the times You have given us together,
Knowingly or unknowingly. Especially . . .
[Now pour your pain into God, who does understand]
Help me to forgive her/him and also myself for
Any hurt and pain we ever caused each other,
For misunderstandings and abuse of any kind,
For not entering into the deep and fully satisfying
Relationship that is only possible between You and me.
Help me to recognise that it is folly to expect such
Perfect love and understanding from a mere human being who,
Like me, is Your child, on her/his own pathway of evolution
And therefore still imperfect.

Continue with this prayer until each and every one,
Who has ever hurt or wounded you, has been forgiven.
Finish off with:

Help me to forgive myself for all false expectations I ever hoped
Could be fulfilled in any of my human relationships,
When this can only be found in You, my Divine Mother/Father.
You are the Divine lover, who is alive in each one of us,
And You alone have the power to know and fulfil all my needs.
All those around me and with me are but outer manifestations of You.
And each one who has ever shared my life with me,
Is Your child and constantly searching the perfect loving relationship
That we can only have with You.

Help me to forgive my children for being [or having been]
Unable to fulfil the unrealistic hopes and dreams I once nurtured,
And that made me long and yearn for them,
Ever since I myself was a child who had to endure the suffering
At the hands of parents and other adults,
Who as yet failed to understand their own true nature and Yours,
And the reason why they were here.
Having no idea about the purpose and meaning of this life,
How could they understand me?

Thank You for allowing me access to the knowledge that
The children who came through me are not my children but Yours
And that they are in this life to fulfil their own Dreams
And reach their own Highest potential, not mine.
Like me, they are hoping to re-learn to walk
Hand in hand with You and the Angels, the way we all once did.

Help me, Great Spirit, to forgive myself and all those
Who ever hurt and wounded me for the suffering we,
In the ignorance of our true nature,
Inflicted upon each other, in the course of many lifetimes.
Help us all to set each other free.

Hand in hand with You and the Angels,
I release all those who have ever shared my life
From the Karmic chains and shackles of all lifetimes,
I forgive each and every one and set them free, now.
May the bonds that exist between us be transmuted into those of
True siblinghood, friendship and love,
For You, each other and the world You so lovingly
Brought into being for us, and re-create anew each day to our joy.

With my whole being, with all my heart and soul,
Mind, body and spirit I thank You for the gift of this life.
May the blessing and healing Power of Your Spirit
Now freely flow through me and all those mentioned in my prayer.
I love You with all my heart and soul and my whole being,
And I trust the blessing and healing power of
Your Divine Fatherly/Motherly wisdom and love
To bless and heal the wounds of all lifetimes in me and all life.

Amen

The Miracle Of Birth

Reflections On The Birth Of A Child

When A Child Is Born

Newborn child - when a child is born

A ray of hope flickers through the sky,
A tiny star lights up, way up high.
All across the land dawns a brand new morn’.
This comes to pass, when a child is born.

A silent wish sails the seven seas.
The winds of change whisper in the trees,
And the walls of doubt crumble fast and torn.
This comes to pass, when a child is born.

A rosy hue settles all around.
You’ve got the feel you’re on solid ground.
For a spell or two no-one seems forlorn.
This comes to pass, when a child is born.

And all this happens, because the world is waiting,
Waiting for one child. Black, white, yellow?
No-one knows.
But a child that’ll grow up and change tears to laughter,
Hate to love, war to peace and everyone to everyone’s neighbour
And misery and suffering will be words
That will be forgotten forever.

It’s all a dream and illusion now,
It must come true, sometime soon somehow.
All across the land dawns a brand-new morn’.
This comes to pass, when a child is born.


F. Jay

To my mind, this song is about every human spirit and soul who is re-entering earthly life to partake in another spell of learning and growing from the experiences and opportunities that are only on offer in this world. That’s why I suggest a small change from: ‘This comes to pass, when a child is born,’ to: ‘This comes to pass, each time a child is born.’

I believe that the long promised child our world has been waiting for never meant another appearance of the Master Jesus. God and the Angels created him as a symbol for the higher Christ or God nature of every human being and for wise higher reasons presented him to us in the form of a new legend. Every one of Jesus tale’s participants only ever existed as a thoughtform that in due course, when it has served its purpose, will gradually be removed from the consciousness of our world.

Whenever a new spirit is first released into earthly life, a spark of the Christ Spirit is deeply implanted in its heart and soul where it slumbers during the initial stage of our earthly development. This part of our being – independent of what phase of development we have reached at that moment – receives the special blessing of an especially powerful outpouring of the Christ love that flows into everything in our world at Christmas from the Highest levels of life. The second coming of the Christ is a metaphor for this process which eventually takes places in each individual soul and simultaneously the collective soul of our whole world.

Eventually there comes the moment when our own Christ characteristics begin to unfold. With this the desires of the small earthly self gradually shrink into the background of our consciousness until they have gone from us completely. This process, however, does not change anyone into a reincarnation of Jesus, for the simple reason that he never existed in earthly life. The best any one of us can do is walk in the footsteps of a spiritual Master as depicted in the Jesus legend. There is nothing wrong and everything right with following the Master’s example and striving to be as good and kind, tolerant and loving to everybody the way the story describes him. Yet, we shall always remain the same individual being with the earthly personality that could have taken us thousands of lifetimes to develop.

The newly born in the manger is an allegory for the first stirrings of the Divine characteristics. During the whole of everyone’s evolutionary odyssey from fool to wise one, sinner to saint, they have always been waiting to come alive. The realisation that, when the time is right, this happens for everybody adds a whole new dimension to our present existence. When they are at last capable of grasping this, even the least devout ones among us are likely to humbly bend their knees with love and devotion before the Holy child in everybody, including themselves, and its true parents, the Great Father/Mother of all life and their only born Son/Daughter, the Universal Christ.

Letter To A Friend On The Birth Of A Baby

Congratulations on the safe arrival of the latest addition to your family circle. It’s good to hear that one of God’s children has been sent to share another one of its temporary homes in earthly life, in the hope of achieving as much spiritual growth as possible. How aware are you that this newly born child has brought its own Karma and also the wisdom it has thus far gathered in the course of its previous lifetimes, which have been stored in its soul? All of us bring this part of our being into each new lifetime we enter in search of more consciousness expanding experiences.

Apart from taking care of the physical needs of our children, I see our task as parents as loving, nurturing and cherishing them for what they truly are, the same as we ourselves are, spirit and soul temporarily encased in matter. We are in this life to help them, to the best of our ability, not to get lost in the illusion of their present earthly existence but to remain conscious of their true nature. That is the only way we can ensure that our child makes the spiritual progress that is its birthright and fulfil its highest potential for its present lifetime.

Even though I may not know you personally, I am aware that the child in your loving arms is a very special one. No need to be particularly big-headed about this though, because every soul is one of those. Recommended Reading: ‘What Do Our Children Learn At School’, ‘You Are Special’ and ‘About Children’ – see table of contents. I trust that these items will provide you with a few starting points for a better understanding of your new arrival.  As I am no friend of birthchart interpretations for babies, later in this work I am going to show you how to apply a touch of D.I.Y. astrology to this situation.

In my view, the intimate and detailed information a birthchart can contain about anyone should be made available only to the owner of the chart. It should never be revealed to another person; maybe least of all it its parents and even the most doting grandparents. This kind of information, either in the wrong hands or used in a moment of anger could provide a nasty weapon against any child. And who would pretend to be free from that altogether in the rearing of children? Which ordinary and healthy child does not occasionally drive even the most loving and patient parents to the point of distraction? When the little darling does so, the information could turn into the opposite of what it was intended to be. I remember driving my parents round the twist sometimes and my children did the same to me, in spite of the fact that none of us were young tear-aways, by any stretch of the imagination.

If you ever had a full interpretation of your own birthchart done by someone, you are likely to understand this better. Neither we, as parents, nor our children, are Angels. So far, we are imperfect human beings who require – children and grownups alike – all the love and help we can lay our hands on. This is where astrology really comes into its own. When used wisely, it can provide parents and grandparents with valuable insights into a child’s character. It is the most wonderful tool imaginable for learning to appreciate everybody’s uniqueness, including that of our child’s and also our own. Our child carries our genes inside, but it is neither our property nor an extension of us, as many people believe to this day. I cannot say that I regarded my children as some kind of a property, as my mother still did. Yet, until I became more aware of the spiritual background of life, I may have considered them to be an extension of myself. So, take heart, if you are one of those who – like me – have a great deal to learn. That after all, it is reason for our being here and it is also why I have written this letter for you.

A few more considerations one ought to bear in mind when one intends to become a caring and loving, as well as an enlightened parent or grandparent. Who would not like to be one of those and why else would anyone be interested in asking for an astrological interpretation for a newly born? To me, the most important point to be born in mind is that a complete and whole soul and spirit, an autonomous entity in its own right, has been entrusted into our care. A child is never merely some kind of an appendix or extension of us.

Why has this soul chosen to honour us, out of all people, with its presence? Because we are the only ones in the whole of Creation who can provide it with the experiences and lessons it requires for its present lifetime. That is a lot of responsibility to carry and a pretty sobering thought, is it not? This principle, by the way, applies as much to our children as to our relationship with our own parents.

The Law Of Karma

All life in the whole of Creation is ruled by Universal laws. To my mind, the most important one of them is the law of Karma, of cause and effect. Applied to parents and their children, the law of Karma sees to it that during our present lifetime we get the kind of parents we ourselves have been in others. Our parents mirror back to us the way we once were in previous lives, how we behaved towards little ones that had been given into our care. The Universe puts the power over our destiny into everybody’s own hands. The kind of parents we are in this lifetime decides what parents we can expect to be born to, next time round, should another appearance in physicality by us. It’s basically that simple!

The vibrations we radiate out into our world are a result of different character traits our soul has developed, with the help of its earthly personality, in the long course of its evolution up to the present time. Every incoming soul is subject to desires, i.e. it feels drawn to certain positive and negative experiences. The positive ones are going to help it develop its existing character traits of this nature some more. The negative ones always present the soul with opportunities for transforming its weaknesses into strengths. The birthchart is like a snapshot in space and time that was taken at the moment we drew our first breath. It reflects, mostly by the position of the Sun by sign and house, in which direction our spirit during the coming lifetime will be mainly be pulling us forward, and on the development of which aspect of life the newcomers efforts will be focused. 

I believe that, as far as the wondrous event of the birth of a baby is concerned, that which takes place behind the scenes of life is of far greater importance than the parenting role played by women and men in our present existence. It is on the higher and highest levels where most of the miracle in truth does take place, as without its consent no new life of any kind can come into being. Here it is decided whether and when a new body is created through two people, so it can serve as a vehicle for a spirit and soul who may have been waiting for a very long time in the world of spirit for another lifetime on the Earth plane.

The way I see it, every newly born child brings into its present incarnation the sum total of all its experiences. Their memories are now stored in its soul, the structure the spirit builds for itself throughout all the experiences of all its lifetimes, from the moment of its creation until the present one. Countless millions of vibrations resonate in every human life and from the moment of its birth the soul is subject to desires. The soul comes to the Earth under a directing influence of the planetary Angels, and protected by its Highest Self it is guided into thoughts, words and actions that ensure its spiritual progress.

Depending on the knowledge the soul is seeking during its present earthly sojourn, these can be positive as well as negative ones. The decisive factor is that the resulting experiences should lead the soul into a better understanding of such concepts as darkness and light, good and evil, and so forth. At some stage in its evolution every soul must learn about both ends of the scale and everything that lies between them. Long before any soul ever make its appearance in physicality, the whole plan of its coming lifetime is carefully laid out in the great book of life. To ensure maximum room for the expansion of its spiritual growth on the Earth plane, this is done in broad outlines only. To help it grow in understanding, behind the scenes of life the Highest Self of every soul is constantly planning and preparing the learning opportunities that are required most of all for our present state of development.

The Adventure Of Life

What an amazing adventure this life becomes when the scales have finally fallen from our eyes and we recognise its background! With this the time has come for shedding all manner of false beliefs, including the one that a child is but an empty vessel that has to be filled by the people surrounding it. Gone are the days of indoctrinating our children with too many of our own beliefs. Only the ones that have been truly useful to us and therefore have stood the test of time are worthy of passing on to anyone, especially our children.

Just think! Each and every one of us has all the knowledge in the whole Universe within us. In view of this, would it be too extreme to say that, in some way, children do not need any education at all? Why then do we insist on pouring unnecessary things into vessels that are only seemingly empty, when in fact they are already full to overflowing? We are here to encourage our children to fulfil their highest potential and that can only be achieved if their own inner knowledge is allowed to come to the surface, so that from there it can flow into our world for the benefit of all.

A newly born child is not an unwritten book either. From the moment of its birth to that of its death, everything that is ever going to happen to each child in its present lifetime has been carefully mapped out in broad outlines by its Highest Self and the Angels. Included are every relationship it will ever have, the people it will meet and every learning opportunity that will eventually come its way through them. All we can do as parents is to love and support our child to the best of our own ability. Knowing that it contains, the same as we ourselves do, the very best and also the worst, it is our task to gently try to steer it towards giving of its best, pointing out from time to time that it is not doing this for us, but for its own highest good. It needs bearing in mind that we are all in this world to each fulfil our own dreams – which may not necessarily be the same as our parent’s – because they are an integral part of the soul dreams of our whole world.

With the degree of understanding of the spiritual backdrop of life we are now finding, the issue of nurturing versus nature also takes on a very different slant. Yes, we are influenced by our environment, especially by the early participants in our upbringing. But, the more experienced and older in soul terms we are, the greater the percentage is bound to be of the characteristics were developed in previous lifetimes and brought into this one. It stands to reason that the percentage of nature, i.e. what was already our spiritual property before our present birth into physicality, is much lower in young and inexperienced souls than in older ones. When one considers the spiritual setting of life, one can only come to one conclusion and close the debate with the following statement: ‘As on the Earth plane we cannot know any soul’s Karma, it is futile to even attempt to guess the percentage of nature and of nurture.’

Although it often seems that we have inherited certain qualities and limitations from our parents; in truth this is never the case. Everybody is on the Earth to act as teachers and pupils to each other. We come through one particular set of parents because their energies and those of the environment they live in suit the requirements of our learning experiences for the coming lifetime; their life lessons are also very similar to ours.  This is true, even if we have come through a long family line of alcoholics or manic depressives. What may appear on the surface of life like something inherited, and therefore has to be put up with, on its inner level it is by no means some kind of an ancestral curse that has befallen us.

Make no mistake about it, we ourselves are responsible for everything that is in our life and this condition is no exception. We ourselves created it in previous lifetimes and we have brought it into this one in the hope of resolving and overcoming it. Now, it is our Karma, but in spite of the fact that on the surface of life it may appear like some kind of retribution, that is never the intention behind it. We do well to bear in mind that the law of Karma is part of the law of love. Divine love has no need for punishing; it teaches instead. That is why each new lifetime brings for every soul opportunities for redeeming itself and making good any harm it once caused to itself and others.

The Age Of Aquarius

As a great deal has been said about the Age of Aquarius in the other parts of the jottings, may it suffice here to remind ourselves that we and our world have presently reached an important evolutionary watershed and that’s why we are living in such exiting times. A New Age, the Age of Aquarius, is dawning and bringing us the long awaited spiritual rebirth of our race and our whole world, and the saviour and redeemer, promised of old, is at last in flesh appearing. You can read in various other parts of my writings how  this is happening in a highly surprising and a much more beautiful way than anyone could ever have envisaged in the past, not even in their wildest dreams.

As the months and years go by, it is coming ever clearer that the new age is not just some kind of a fad or an airy-fairy notion that has sprung from the minds of the participants of the hippy movement. It is a concept that deserves to be taken seriously and demands the fullest attention from each one of us, not merely from those who already are interested in their own spiritual progress and that of our whole world.

All Life Is Energy

All life consists of energies and vibration. Everything in the whole of Creation, including us, operates through constant exchanges of energy and, as already established, all life is bound by God’s Universal laws. We come together in families and other groups because of the attraction of similar energies, for the purpose of working out the results of everybody’s accumulated Karma. As briefly touched upon earlier, if in past lifetimes we ourselves have been tender, loving and caring parents, this time we shall come through parents who treat us likewise. Why are we human beings so good at making things, especially our relationships, so complicated?

On first encounter, the concept of the law of Karma can be a tough one to come to terms with. If our own childhood was a hard and difficult one, to heal the pain and release the fear, anger and frustration our earlier conditions caused us, takes a great deal of compassion of love for ourselves and those who were the cause of our suffering. Especially for those who were the victims to some kind of abuse, it is important to make themselves familiar with this law. To my mind, it alone can help us make some sense of our own lives and also of the things that happened in the past on our planet and are still taking place, to this day.

As the awareness of our spiritual nature and the Universal laws we are all subject to sinks into our innermost being, the foundation are built in our soul for compassion, forgiveness and love for ourselves, our own suffering. That is what we need most of all when it comes to facing the unpalatable facts that we ourselves are responsible for everything that is in our lives; and that it was us who drew all these difficult experiences into our life. Forgiveness alone can set two human souls free from each other and the wheel of Karma; it dissolves the emotional shackles and bonds that may have tied them together in endless repetition, until finally understanding dawns and they forgive each other. This process is what I call ‘the healing journey’.

Love Is The Law Of Life

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - The Miracle Of Birth - The Law Of Life Is Love

God’s highest law of life is love. All other spiritual laws have their roots in this one and radiate out from it. Loving is our natural state. Everything else belongs to the learning curve of earthly life and can only ever be a temporary state. We have come from love and we are returning to it and that without exceptions. The core of everybody’s being is spirit and pure consciousness and all of us are in this life together so that from each other we may grow in wisdom and understanding. Each one of us can only do this through their own first hand experiences. This continues until our vibrations have become so refined that we can consciously be re-united with God.

Newly born children are particularly good at teaching those around them how to love totally and unconditionally, the way the Great Father/Mother of all life loves each one of us. Every human being eventually learns how to love this way, i.e. wisely, impersonally and with detachment, instead of emotionally and out of neediness. This kind of love is not possessive and clings neither to people nor things. Although the experience of possession and possessiveness are part of our earthly curriculum, in truth we do not possess anything or anyone. Even our physical bodies do not belong to us. They are temporary gifts that have to be handed back to Mother Earth, at the end of each lifetime.

The bringing up of children, as any honest parent of grown-up children will probably confirm, is an exceedingly tall order for mere mortals, like you and me. But even though the rearing of children is the most difficult and trying task we are ever likely to tackle, when viewed from the spiritual/evolutionary angle it is at the same time the most rewarding and important one. The most helpful item of wisdom that to this day has come my way is that our children are not our children, but the children of God and life itself. And if one wishes to establish a healthy parent/child relationship, the awareness that the little ‘stranger’ in our arms is a fully evolved soul and spirit in its own right is essential. What a humbling thought that in soul terms, this child may be much older than we ourselves are, i.e. more highly evolved.

As we progress on our evolutionary path, through our experiences we steadily gather knowledge and wisdom that expands our awareness and understanding of life. Steadily we move forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life and the only thing that truly ever belongs to us is our consciousness. Whatever we manage to add to it in learning is ours to keep in all eternity. That’s why no child that is ever born on the Earth enters into a new lifetime with nothing. Accompanying each new tiny body is always a fully formed spirit and soul at the evolutionary level it had reached up to the point of departure from its previous earthly sojourn. This time round it has again brought with it every bit of the wisdom it acquired in the course of all previous ones.

I find it good to know that any wisdom our spirit and soul finds along its pathway through earthly life we take with us into the world of spirit, in preparation for all coming lifetimes – and way beyond, when we have reached the evolutionary level that Earth life can no longer teach us anything.

The following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in ‘Memories of Reincarnation – White Eagle’s Work in the Present Day’: ‘Love is the law of life and God’s will is that each one of you learns to love all people and constantly sends out light in the form of goodwill to the whole of humankind. Unbeknown to those dwelling on the Earth plane for a long time, we, your guides in the world of spirit, have always been working on the development of human minds and hearts.

‘We are glad to say that, as the years were speeding by, your race passed the darkest stages of its spiritual development. It is good to see how the Divine spark of the Universal Christ, the perfect Son/Daughter of the Great Father/Mother of all life, is increasingly waking from its slumbers and manifesting itself ever more powerfully in many of you and your whole world. Through rising above the drives and urges of your lower animal self and overcoming them, you make room for your own Christ nature to come to the fore of your consciousness, so it can gradually take over your whole being. Constant progress on the evolutionary spiral of life is every human being’s Divine inheritance and sacred destiny.

‘God’s great plan of life and the Universal laws decree that what you begin in one lifetime, you will always continue during the next one. And when, at the end of your present earthly lifetime, you return to us in our world, you will still be working to guide and inspire, bless and heal humankind, just the same as many of you are presently doing.’

Astrology As Educational Instrument

Rays Of Wisdom - The Healing Corner For Parents And Children - Astrology As Educational InstrumentEach one of us is an individual and a very special, precious and unique being. That’s why there is no point in trying to make our children carbon copies carbon of ourselves. Wise ones know that it would not work anyway, so why try? Whenever possible, they allow their youngsters to follow their own natural tendencies in games, recreations and occupations. Those who truly desire their happiness, need to resist the temptation of trying to force their offspring into they way of life. If, for example, a child is timid and shy, horse riding could be sheer hell. Why should it have to do something is so dislikes? For an artistic child a business career would not do. Being compelled to do things that go against their nature, all we can hope to achieve that in the end our children are learning to hate their work and life, and us, too.

When it comes to making some of the most vital decisions on behalf of our children, they are inevitably in the weaker position, because for starters far too many choices have to be made much too early in their lives. To help our children fulfil their highest potential, most of all they need to know that we love them unconditionally and that we believe in them, no matter how impossible their behaviour may sometimes be and how abstruse their interests may appear to us. Let’s not brainwash any child into believing of itself as a failure, because it cannot do with the same elegance what we believe we could do, at their age. Even if it mattered, did we really? And even if we did, it’s all water under the bridge now that the memories of our own worst growing-up pains fortunately have faded considerably. Almost certainly we have by now forgotten what a tough time we had acquiring the skills and the panache for the things we are capable of doing now.

Did anyone ever prepare you for rearing children? Did anyone teach you how to be a good parent? Do you unfailingly know what to do for the best? Is it inevitable that important work like the rearing of children has to be guesswork and is largely done by trial and error? There have to be better ways of going about it that promise a degree of success. What I know for sure is that I would have made a much better job of bringing up my own children, had I been equipped with at least a working knowledge of human nature and the spiritual background of life. Astrology has been immensely helpful to me and in the right hands it can be turned into a great instrument for getting to know and appreciating ourselves, as well as everybody else.

The individuality of every ‘little stranger’ who has chosen to come through us into this world, helpless and naked, seeking our protection and love, can easily be recognised with the help of my interpretations of the Sun signs. * I cannot imagine a field of human endeavour where astrology could be more useful than when it comes to rearing children, if only through familiarising ourselves with the typical behaviour patterns of the different Sun signs. For example, let’s say you and your partner are strongly under the influence of placid and kind, loving and earth-bound Taurus. Should your child ‘happen’ to be born into Aries, learning how to handle a little fireball with loads of restless energy inside, who finds it impossible to sit still for any length of time will be a tall order for you.

Believe you me, this kind of thing happens quite frequently. No matter how trying such situations can be, they are sure to be alleviated by a working knowledge of the basic energies of the signs involved and the special lessons the parties involved have come to integrate during their present lifetime. For starters, being aware that your child cannot help its own nature and the manifestations of its energies and life lessons straight away enables you to be more tolerant towards your child.

But if the mother is a Sun Aries, the scene is set for quite a different picture. She is the masculine positive and outgoing, impatient and aggressive type of parent. Should her child be under the influence of a lot of feminine passive and receptive watery energy, for example when its Sun and/or Moon are in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, the youngster is likely to be highly psychic, sensitive and far more emotional than the mother. For as long as she is unaware of what is operating within herself and her child, getting along peacefully with each other is almost impossible for these two.

To the mother’s greatest annoyance her offspring may frequently burst into tears. Alas, as that is its nature, it cannot help itself. But many times the child’s weeping to the mother appears to be for no good reason. She could then be tempted to think of this as a weakness that has to be driven out of the obstinate youngster, by her. The child’s emotional outbursts might in time make the mother feel so fed up and angry that their life together could easily deteriorate into a living hell for both. The awareness of the child’s natural inclinations would surely help the Aries woman to be more tolerant and patient with her child.

Should the youngster be a boy, this is even more important. It will then do him a world of good to be not only allowed but encouraged to express his emotions and shed a few tears here and there. If he can be taught to do this in a place where he cannot be seen and where he can be sure nobody calls him a sissy, he will be protected against emotional blockages that in later life may have to find an outlets in bouts of deep depressions and also physical illnesses like rheumatic complaints and arthritis. Besides, your understanding and wisdom will save him from acquiring the wrong kind of reputation among his peers. You will also be boosting his self-esteem and with the passing of time his love and admiration for you will multiply for being so understanding.

If you have followed my advice of becoming your own astrologer * and apply the skills you have developed through this to any newly born child, you will be amazed about how much you already know about the tiny creature in your loving arms. To you it does not have to be a stranger and an unwritten book. It will help you realise that it is by no means a vacuum that is waiting to be filled – by you and any number of other teachers that will be entering its life in due course. Your knowledge will enable you to encourage your child to bring forth, from within itself, the highest and best characteristics of its Sun, Moon and Ascendant sign, rather than getting lost in the negative ones. Gently coaxing and encouraging it will go a long way towards building a happy relationship for the two of you.

To the people around you who believe that any newly born baby is something like an unwritten book, they are allowing appearances to fool them. How about taking a printout of this article, maybe this whole sect in of my jottings, and handing it over to them? Won’t they be surprised to find out about the things every new child brings with it? Even the thought and behaviour patterns we developed in previous lifetimes, as well as our fears and anxieties, false beliefs, prejudices and superstitions we bring with us each time we enter into another physical body in search of consciousness expanding experiences. Each time anew we are presented with the task of sorting the wheat from the chaff by keeping that which is good, right and beautiful in our character make-up and discarding the rest.

Ignorance – The Cause Of All Suffering

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - Ignorance - The Cause Of All Suffering

And now let’s take a look at D.I.Y. astrology *, briefly touched upon in the previous chapter. The main features of every birthchart are Sun, Moon and Ascendant. Looking them up is easy because there are sites on the web where you can do this free of charge; http://www.astro.com/ is one of them. Although I know of it, I am in no way connected with it. Because a friend recommended it some time ago, I tried it and was surprised about the quality of their information. But see for yourself. And as soon as you have found out where your child’s Sun, Moon and Ascendant are, go to my interpretations of the relevant signs in the Astro Files *.

By studying each one of the relevant signs, you can discover a great deal about your child, including some of its subconscious motivations. This will give you a first class idea of how the newcomer is going to fit into the energies of the rest of your family *. Don’t take my word for it, but first try your own details. You are sure to find the study of the Sun sign that corresponds to your Moon sign particularly revealing. Its negative characteristics are of particular interest here, as the Moon tends to bring them more to the surface of our thinking and behaviour patterns than the Sun in the same sign.

In my view, much of the suffering in our world could quite easily be avoided if everybody took the trouble of finding a better understanding of their own true nature and of those around them. Equipped with a good dose of kindness and patience for ourselves and our children we have a much better chance of assisting them on their predestined way through life. That’s how frustrations and disappointments can easily be avoided for everybody involved.

The kind of understanding that can be obtained from astrology prevents us from ever telling any child that it is useless and no good. Because children tend to take things literally, an incredible amount of damage is done by such talk. Someone should also have a word with teachers about this. When people tell us things like that early in life, is it any wonder if later in life we fail and do not have the courage to try anything new and exciting? But in truth every human being is gifted in some special way * and is good at something. All of us have hidden talents that may already have taken many lifetimes to develop and in this one need to be brought to the surface of our consciousness.

Knowing this, clearly there is no such thing as a complete and utter failure in life, although we can certainly be brainwashed into believing that we are. This is particularly damaging in childhood, because it creates the wrong perception of ourselves in our earthly mind. In truth, everybody has the potential for doing anything they truly wish to do, within reason. If our hearts truly desire something and we are ready to work for it with all our might, so that we should learn from it one way or another, God and the Angels will eventually make our dream come true. It would not do to want to grow a pair of wings to fly to the Moon. Although this can be done, spiritually and in the mind, in our physical bodies it is impossible.

I believe that every bit of suffering on our planet is caused by nothing but ignorance and that it’s up to ordinary people like you and me to do our share of absorbing it into the light of God’s sacred wisdom and truth *. Never forget that many small people, in many small places, doing many small things have the power of changing our world.

The Child’s First Seven Years

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - The Child's First Seven YearsDuring the first seven years of each subsequent earthly life children almost exclusively operate on the frequency of their Moon. That’s why for the span of that time they are much more in touch with their subconscious drives and soul memories than later in life. They also have a much better contact with the world of spirit than the adults around them could ever hope to find. The Moon’s influence ensures that children at first are closer to their mother or the feminine nurturing and caring side of their father, if he for some reason takes over the mothering role.

In the birthcharts of both genders the Moon represents the feminine aspect of the human nature. The important females around us, like mothers, wives and partners, are outer manifestations of this part of our being. You can read more about this by following the link at the end of this chapter. The Moon represents the nurturing and caring aspect of the Divine Trinity, the Great Mother. Her astrological sign is Cancer and Her house the fourth. For the first seven years of their lives every child is under the special care of the Great Mother and the Moon. The influence of these energies makes children highly psychic and because of this their connection to the spirit world can be very strong. If your child tells you about playmates that are invisible to you, the likelihood is that they are friends your child made in the spirit world, who are now coming to play with it. Even though you cannot see them, rest assured these friends really are there.

If your child is highly imaginative, maybe a soft, sensitive and dreamy Piscean, it needs to be allowed regular special times for dreaming and going within. Providing every child with the right sources of stimulants is essential, for example listening to soft and gentle music for the Piscean child. And every child benefits from being encouraged to express itself creatively and artistically. But as too much escape from the realities of earthly life is not good for anyone, such activities need to be balanced by more earthbound ones. For the all-round wellbeing of every child it’s good to gently and lovingly pull them down to Earth and firmly place its feet there.

The deeper we move into the Aquarian Age, the more the awareness of the world of spirit and its realities is going to increase. It will soon be the norm rather than the exception for parents to encourage their children to remain in touch with this their true home and ours. After all, having just left it, they remember better than we do that this world is not some place elsewhere, but an integral part of everybody’s earthly existence.

Regular sessions of meditations, quiet reflections and prayers are helpful for adults who wish to re-establish their contact with the spirit realm and through this once more take possession of the most precious and beautiful part of themselves. It’s all too easy to lose the knowledge of this in a world that, on its surface, appears to be growing ever colder and more materialistic. How much more fortunate children and adults alike shall be when everyone is aware of their true higher nature and lives by its values and characteristics in all their encounters. At last there will then be peace in our world.

Last but not least, whether we like it or not, it has to be faced that as soon as the purpose of one of our earthly lifetimes has been fulfilled, irrespective at what age this has been achieved, we leave our physical body behind and our spirit and soul go home into the spirit realm. Because children are still so close to that world, they leave the earthly plane with great ease. They have not yet acquired the mental barriers, which every human being gradually absorbs from the false beliefs and fears of those surrounding them. When the time for our departure into the spirit draws close later in life, these obstacles have to be wrestled with and overcome. In sharp contrast to this, children remember that there is no need to be afraid of the background of their earthly existence. And so they gladly accept the Angel of Death’s hand and joyously re-enter the greater freedom, ease and beauty of our other world and true home.

In The Name Of Love

Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - In The Name Of Love

The following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides from the book ‘Spiritual Unfoldment’, which was first published in the 1940s: ‘The law of life is love and in the course of many lifetimes every human being is destined to evolve into a young God * and that is someone who loves God’s way, totally, unconditionally and above all wisely and being able to give without expecting anything in return. However, in the early stages of your earthly education you frequently misunderstand sentiment as love. During that phase of your development you try to cover your weaknesses and faults by saying that you are doing things in the name of love.

‘Alas, for as long as you are blinded in this way you cannot yet perceive the true needs of those around you, i.e. their spiritual requirement for learning, each through their own experiences, so that through this you grow in understanding and wisdom. This prevents you from giving real service. It causes you to give foolishly in ways that indulge the other one and indirectly your own selfishness. This brings to mind devoted parents who give their children everything they demand, in the belief that what they are doing is an expression of their love. Instead of creating opportunities through which their offspring can learn and grow, such parents are robbing their youngsters of the means for self-development and self-expression.

‘More highly evolved parents are aware that the Great Mother allows all Her children to come to their own decisions and make their own mistakes, so they can learn from them and do better next time round. Being a wise parent does not mean you are cold and indifferent towards your children. Quite the opposite is true. Your love is so great and you are so wise that you recognise your children’s requirement for experiencing life, each in its own unique and special way. The greatest gift any parent can give their offspring is as early as possible encouraging them to come to their own conclusions and make their own decisions. When you have learnt to love God’s way, you will know when to give and when to withhold something and for how long, as this helps your child to learn how to appreciate the value of things.

‘Too many sweets in more than one sense can be the cause of severe bilious attacks! If you indulge those around you and give them all they want, mistaking this to be love, in due course you are likely to create a spiritual bilious attack that will be as uncomfortable for your loved ones as for you. Human motherly love with its maternal instincts in its lowest form expresses itself as possessiveness that has its roots in selfishness. Experiencing this is an inevitable part of humankind’s early earthly education.

‘The higher you move on the evolutionary spiral of life, the more the caring and nurturing Divine aspects of maternal love in both women and men come to the fore of their consciousness and gradually take over their whole being. This kind of love is creative and endlessly giving. It manifests itself in the creation of every new life. In the long evolutionary process that follows each birth Divine love constantly endeavours to assist its creation to become ever more beautiful and perfect. In the case of human beings this is achieved when all aspects of their nature are integrated and working together peacefully and harmoniously, the way they are doing in God.

‘As you mature into spiritual adulthood, you are familiar with your own true nature and why you are taking part in earthly life. In your lifetimes as women or men in which you play the role of a parent, you no longer look at your children as your property. You know that they are not of you, but merely have come through you. This awareness makes it easier for you to steer the youngsters in your charge in the right direction. Because you realise that your children are on the Earth for the same reasons that you are, if their natural gifts * are different from your interests and inclinations, you would not dream of forcing them to follow in your footsteps. Aware that their talents, like yours, are likely to have taken many lifetimes to develop and that with the necessary encouragement in this one they may fully unfold, you do your best to support your children.

‘In some of your lifetimes you appear as a man and on other occasions as a woman. Depending on your Karma and what kind of life lessons are most beneficial for you, you are sometimes required to act the part of a father or a mother. And how does your mind react when you realise that in some of your lifetimes you could have been the son or daughter of the person who is your child in this one? So, enjoy your children as gifts for a time, the same as everything else you are allowed access to in your earthly existence. Glorify and protect Mother Earth, dear Friends, as one of the many physical and spiritual manifestations of the Great Mother of all life. Each one of you, women and men alike, are another one.’

Our Children As Teachers

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - Our Children As TeachersIsn’t it a comforting thought that on the inner level of life our children are our siblings in the great family of humankind, our brothers and sisters who entered into yet another lifetime through us, so both of us could temporarily act as parents and children? All of us are in this life so that we may learn to love wisely, the way God loves us and there could be no better teacher, provided by life itself, than acting the parts of parents and children. It is a great honour to be a parent, because in earthly life we are then acting as feminine and masculine physical manifestations of the Great Father/Mother, the true parents of every human being.

If our Divine parents love us sufficiently to allow each one of us to learn from their own experiences and to make our own mistakes, why then should we be so blind as to deny that same God-given right to the children who, for a while, have been entrusted into our care? And yet, isn’t it the single most difficult experience of all to stand by and allow our children to make their own mistakes, so that they may learn from them and grow, the same as everybody else is doing? That is the way God loves us all; no earthly parent can give their children a greater gift than doing the same for them.

One thing is abundantly clear to me. Had I been aware of only a fraction of all I know now, when my children were born, how much more mutually satisfactory and satisfying a job I could have made of rearing them. Oh, what I would have given for that! This section was written in the hope of making a small contribution towards helping you do better than I did. It is an attempt at paying some of the debts I owe my life for all the wonderful gifts it has been and still is bestowing upon me. If you are getting some benefit from it, then my living truly has not been in vain.

No matter what may ever befall you or your child, bear in mind that no soul ever chooses a pathway that is too hard. As tough as life may be at times, no cross is too heavy to bear. No soul incarnates to shoulder more than it can carry. If ours is a particularly heavy load this time round, the likelihood is that we are an old and highly evolved soul, who has chosen to grow some more through these experiences. And if our children helped us as parents to become more patient and less selfish and self-centred in our loving, let’s not forget to be thankful for it.

During their times in earthly life all human beings find themselves imprisoned in something like the hold of a great ship. We cannot glimpse the beauty of the ocean of life through which it is ploughing its way onwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral back into the radiance of the Universal Christ’s Light, whose sparks and who has always remained linked with our hearts.

Earthly education is compulsory, but no-one forces us into another lifetime. Yet, on every occasion we newly arrive in the world of light for rest and recuperation at the end of another earthly sojourn, once more we become aware of the vastness and beauty of the ocean of God’s Creation, through which the good ship humankind has been ploughing for a long, long time. At that stage we realise that if we ever wish to move on to lessons of a more elevated nature, we better get on with doing time on the Earth. And so we apply for another lifetime and that is always our own choice.

A Celebration Of Mothers

Motherly Love

Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - A Mother's Love

Soaking wet from a downpour
One day in my childhood I arrived home.  
My brother asked: ‘Why didn’t you take an umbrella?’
My sister said: ‘Why you didn’t you wait until the rain had stopped?
My father added: ‘If you’ve caught a cold,
It’ll be  your own fault.’

My mother however, while drying my hair,
Said: ‘Give thanks and praise, my child,
For having received a special gift from the Universe.
Every drop of rain and every snowflake
That falls from the Heavens
Blesses and heals the Earth.
And as there’s nothing finer than rainwater
For human complexions,
We’ll it just let it dry on your face.’

A Prayer For Mother’s Day

Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers for Comfort & Healing - Prayer for Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is a modern celebration that has its origin in North America. It honours our own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society in general. This day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.

The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early twentieth century and is not related to the many festivities of mothers and motherhood that have been part of our world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration, which originally celebrated the church as mother of humankind, not motherhood in general. Despite this, in many countries Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.

O Great White Spirit,
Father/Mother of all life
And Your love so Divine.
I thank You for the love
Of a mother like mine.

In Your infinite mercy
Look down from above
And bless my dear mother
With the gift of Your love.

And all through the year,
Whatever betide her,
Show her each day
That You are inside her.

Beloved Father/Mother,
Show me the way
How I can help her
And brighten her day.

Bless her dear heart
With the ability to see
That her love means more
Than the world to me.

Helen Steiner Rice

Let us also pray in thankfulness for the mothers of our present lifetime who have already returned to the world of spirit for their hard earned and well deserved rest. Included in this prayer are mothers who, in their most recent lifetime, followed and acted out the drives and urges of their lower earthly nature, instead of bringing  forth the best qualities of their higher Christ nature. By showing their children through their behaviour how they do not want to be, mothers create heavy karmic burdens  for themselves, even though at the same time they are acting as invaluable teachers for their offspring.

As every human being is on the same evolutionary pathway, by agreeing to play this part in our lives such mothers – mine was one of them – are slowing down their spiritual development and maybe even bringing it to a standstill for that particular lifetime. And for that, we as their children owe them an extra special debt of gratitude.

A Mother’s Love

Rays of Wisdom - Words And Prayers Of Healing And Peace - A Mother's Love

Naturally, there are exceptions to any rule, including this one. But generally speaking, nobody loves us like mothers are capable of loving their children. Somewhere in the finely meshed fabric of life, the love that existed between the earthly mother of our present lifetime and us in previous ones wove a strong golden cord that connects us with her. Ideally, this bond is not one of possession but of protection and caring, of being there for us whenever we are in need of it. In our younger days we may perceive this as a strain of over-watchfulness and too many questions. But time, the old equaliser, is likely to reveal to us eventually that the quality of her love has been less selfish than we thought, and more precious than we ever dreamed it could be.

The best part of the relationship with our earthly mother is not the blood connection, but the karmic ties between us that may be reaching a long way back into previous lifetimes. That’s the main reason why she opted for playing this role for us in this one. She did this because that’s what she wanted and not because it was her duty. It was of her own free will that she choose to be our mother and ours to come through her and be her child. Even if there are still some unresolved issues between us when she has returned into the world of light, the awareness of this sets us free to say things like: ‘I love you, mama’.

To paraphrase Quanah Parker from the Native American Comanche tribe: ‘Comanche may die tomorrow or in ten year’s time, but when the end of one lifetime comes for any of us, we know that there will be a reunion the world of spirit. That’s where I am going to see my mother again.’

But even if the mother of our present lifetime could not love and attend to us the way we would have liked her to, the Great Father/Mother of all life has always provided for all our needs and accepted us just the way we were at any given moment. Providing us with an unloving mother for our present lifetime happened for the wise higher reason of teaching us some valuable lesson and to provide us with opportunities for redeeming some of our karmic debts. And wherever our evolutionary pathway may still have to take us in our earthly existence, the Great Father/Mother loves each one of us totally and unconditionally and will forever do so.

In Praise Of Mothers

The Honours Degree

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents & Children - Great Cathedrals - An Ode To Mothers

Why, when I am on the phone and one of my children walks into the room and asks to be taken somewhere, do I get nothing but blank stares from them? I can feel my inner self rebelling each time something of this nature happens and I would like to shout: ‘Can’t you see I’m on the phone?’ Yet, I control myself and say nothing. No-one seems to notice me whether I am on the phone, cooking or sweeping the floor, I could even be standing on my head in a corner. And that makes me wonder whether I am invisible.

At times I appear to be nothing but a pair of hands when I hear someone saying: ‘Can you fix this? ‘Can you tie this?’ ‘Can you open this?’ Sometimes it feels as I were not even a pair of hands, never mind a human being. I feel like a clock that can be asked: ‘What time is it?’ or a satellite guide who can answer questions like: ‘What number is the Disney Channel?’ On other occasions my family treats me as if I were a taxi driver who is on call at all times and responds to commands like: ‘5.30 pm at Shirley’s, please!’

On such occasions I might look at my hands. They are the same ones that held books and my eyes are still the ones that studied what now seems a long time ago. I am still the person who graduated with honours and who held down a responsible position for a good number of years. But then my thoughts wander to my children. All along they have been my teachers and one day when they have grown up, hopefully into sensible and responsible adults, I shall reflect on the times when they were young. This may enable me to see how much they have helped me to graduate in the great school of life with honours and that what I am doing now is much more valuable to me as well as the whole of life than any University degrees could ever be, important though they may be at the time.

Sometimes I can’t help looking back and asking myself: ‘Have all those things vanished from me without a trace, never to be seen again?’ When a tinge of sadness creeps in, I remind myself that I gave them up freely and willingly, because more than anything else in the whole wide world I wanted children of my own, a home and a family I could pour all my love into. Each time the thought strikes me: ‘Who was the person who did the things I mentioned earlier? Where is she now?’ my inner guidance responds with: ‘She has not left you, she is still here, but she has changed and grown immensely through her offspring. She’s less selfish and more loving and thoughtful than she used to be.’

Apart from everything, the survival of our species is tied up with the joys of earthly parenthood. By providing new vehicles for those who in truth are not our children but God’s, we are making invaluable contributions towards the evolutionary progress of ourselves through becoming more likeable people. This is also true for those who enter into a another earthly lifetime through us, the whole of humankind, our world and ultimately the whole of Creation. And that’s how, hand in hand with God and the Angels, all of us together are constantly marching forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life into better and more peaceful times.

Great Cathedrals

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - In Praise Of Mothers - The Honours Degree

I am a mother of four young children and belong to a group of friends. One evening we were having dinner together to welcome one of our members home. Janice is one of our circle and we were celebrating her return from a fabulous trip. Telling us of her adventures, she went on and on about the places she had seen and the hotels she stayed in. And there was I, looking at the others who were all turned out so well. It was hard not to compare myself with them. My out of style dress was the only thing I could find that was clean enough and because I had no time for washing my hair before I left our house, I tied it into a knot. And just for a moment I was afraid a smell of peanut butter might cling to me and waft to the others. I have to admit I was feeling rather sorry for myself.

But then Janice turned to me with a beautifully wrapped package and said: ‘I brought you this.’ It was a book on the great cathedrals of Europe. I wasn’t sure why she had given it to me, until I saw her dedication, which read: ‘To my friend, with admiration for the greatness of what you are building and what no-one can see.’ During the coming days, I devoured the book and found in it four truths that changed my perspective of life entirely. To my astonishment I discovered that the life of the builders of the great cathedrals of our world had been very similar to mine.

Let me explain. Nobody knows who the builders were, as no records of the names of most of them are available anywhere. As a matter of fact, they dedicated a whole lifetime to a work they would never see finished. Therefore they are unlikely to have expected any credit for their efforts. Their enthusiasm and love for their project may well have been fuelled by the belief that they were building for the glory of God and that the all-seeing eye of God would appreciate any sacrifices that had to be made.

The book contains a legend about a rich man who came to visit one of the cathedrals while it was under construction. For a while he watched a workman who was busy carving a tiny bird on the inside of a beam. The rich man was so puzzled by this that he asked the workman: ‘Why are you spending so much time carving that bird into a beam that will be covered by the roof? No-one will ever see it.’ ‘Ah,’ the other one replied: ‘It’s for God. The almighty sees everything.’

When I closed the book, the small still voice of my inner guidance whispered: ‘Your efforts are not for nothing either. I am the living God within you. I am as much part of you as you are of Me. At all times I see even the tiniest sacrifice anyone is making, even though no-one else may do so. No act of kindness, no button sewn on or cake baked is too small a labour of love for Me to notice and be pleased about. Be proud for you too are involved in the construction of a great building. You cannot yet see what it will be one day. It may even take until you return into the world of spirit, but from there too you will know that your efforts have not been wasted and that the seeds you have been sowing are bearing fruit, one way or another.’

It’s good to know that, just as the builders of the cathedrals are looking at their achievements from the other side of the veil of consciousness, at the latest I too will be able to view the results of my efforts when I join them. But, wait a minute. Some of those great edifices are hundreds of years old, so in the meantime their designers and builders could have been recycled many times. Just think! At this very moment they could be standing in front of one of those old churches, admiring the work of their own minds and hands, unaware of what kind of an input they once had into its creation. They may inexplicably feel drawn to it, as if by some giant invisible magnet, to stand and gaze upon and admire it. Isn’t it an amazing world we live in?

Sometimes when I am together with my children, they are so focussed on experiencing their young lives that I cannot help a feeling of being invisible. I do not allow this to spoil my enjoyment of my offspring because I recognise that such feelings are a good cure for my self-centeredness. My newly found vision of being a great builder helps me to keep the right perspective on my children, my life and myself. It helps me to know that I too am one of those people who are working hard at a job they may never see finished during their present lifetime and that may never bear my name.

The author of my book wrote that no cathedrals could ever be built in our present times for the simple reason that nobody would be willing to make the required sacrifices. Come to think of it, I would not want my daughter to tell the friend she brings home from college for Thanksgiving: ‘My mother is wonderful! She got up at four in the morning to bake some homemade pies and then hand-basted a turkey for three hours. On top of that she cleaned the whole house to make it look and feel good.’ I do not care for building myself shrines and monuments. I just want my children to come home. And if there is anything my children say to their friends, I hope it will be something like: ‘You’re going to love it, I’m sure.’

No matter what anyone may say about us mothers, in the great plan of life we are playing an essential role. Without us our world could not continue to exist. We are the representatives and temporary substitutes of the Great Mother, who gives life through all her daughters. Like her, lovingly and silently we give of our best, safe in the knowledge that She and Her Angels are going to take care of the rest. As co-creators with God, women are doing their share of building mighty cathedrals, metaphorically speaking. No-one, except God, can see the many sacrifices and efforts each one of these works takes. But throughout the ages, hasn’t our world at all times been marvelling at what wonderful work women are doing by bringing up their children?

Wise Mothers

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents & Children - Great Mothers

This is a gift from the wisdom and love of Me, the Great Mother of all Life, to My human manifestations on the Earth plane. It is dedicated to those who are planning to become wise mothers in their own right and to any woman who already is one. It is also for the fortunate ones who presently have a wise earthly mother as well as for those who once had one like this.

•    Truly wise mothers know that their children are My children, the same as they themselves are. They are aware that their offspring are merely coming through them and are not of them and therefore not some kind of parent property. The awareness of this helps them to let go of their young ones easily, when the time for doing so has come.

•    Wise mothers appreciate when to give something to their child and when it is better to withhold, so that through this the child learns to appreciate the value of what it desires.

•    Wise mothers know that children’s growth is not merely measured by their height and age or their grades at school, but even more so by their understanding of the higher purpose and meaning of their earthly existence.

•    Wise mothers are aware that the child that has entrusted itself into her care for its present lifetime is by no means an empty vessel that is waiting to be filled. They realise that their child could be a reincarnation of a much older and more experienced soul than they themselves are, who has come to teach her many things.

•    Wise mothers are grateful that the child has chosen to come through her into another lifetime in the hope of getting the support that is necessary for the full unfoldment of the junior’s special gifts and talents, which could have taken many lifetimes to develop. The memories of all its learning from previous earthly sojourns are stored in its soul and can be reached through its subconscious.

•    Wise mothers understand that in all of us, without being aware of it, we are constantly tapping into the memories of our soul and that they influence everything we do in positive or negative ways, depending on how we have prepared ourselves in previous lifetimes for the present one. Wise mothers realise that this also applies to the development of her offspring.

Changing Perceptions

Rays Of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - A Celebration Of Mothers - Changing Perceptions

At various ages the child may say about its mother:

4 – My Mummy is a miracle! She can do anything and knows everything!
8 – My Mum knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 – She really doesn’t know quite everything.
14 – Naturally, Mother doesn’t know that, either.
16 – Mother? She’s hopelessly old fashioned.
18 – That old woman? She’s way out of date!
25 – Let’s ask Mum – she might know a little bit about this.
35 – Before I decide, I’ll get Mum’s opinion.
45 – I wonder what Mum would have thought about it?
65 – If only I could talk it over with Mum once more. Well, let’s meditate on it and ask the wisdom of the Great Mother in my heart to guide and help me.

A woman’s true beauty does not express itself in the clothes she wears, the figure she has or what hairstyle she chooses. It can only be seen in her eyes. They are the mirror or her soul, the doorway to her heart and the place where love dwells. Real beauty in women and men alike is eternal and comes from their soul; outer things like moles and warts cannot mar it. It expresses itself in the way they care for those around them and the love they apply to everything they do. That is the only kind of beauty that truly counts and lasts forever. The main purpose of every human being’s earthly existence is the discovery of this kind of beauty within themselves, so that through manifesting it in all their daily encounters it can increase with the passing of the years.

An Exhausted Mother’s Prayer

Mother with child - Rays of Wisdom - Parents & Children - An Exhausted Mother's Prayer

 Now I lay me down to sleep
And pray that my sanity I shall keep.
For if some peace I do not find,
It won’t take long till I lose my mind.
 
I pray to find some peace and quiet,
Far away from my family’s usual riot,
For lying down without having to think
About what they may be putting down the sink,
Or who they are with and what they are at,
And the things they could be doing to our cat.
 
I pray for time all to myself,
But lo!
Did something just fall off a shelf?
Time for resting in my nice soft bed,
Unaware that they’re painting one of my curtains red.
How much I’d give for a silent moment!
Oh, for goodness sake,
Did I just hear a window break?

I dream I need neither cook nor clean.
Well, everybody has the right to dream.
 And so I lay me down to sleep
And pray for my wits to keep,
But when I look around I know
I must have lost them long ago.

Woman’s Tears

Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents & Children - Woman's Tears

A little boy once asked his mother:
‘Why are you crying?’
Smiling at him through her tears,
She replied: ‘Because I’m a woman,’
‘I don’t understand that,’ he said.
Hugging him, his mother answered:
‘Maybe you never will’.

Dissatisfied, the boy turned to his father:
‘Why does mother sometimes seem to cry for no reason?’
His dad shrugged: ‘I suppose women just are like that.
Sometimes they cry for no reason.’

When the little boy had grown into a man
He was still wondering why it should be that women
Are much more easily moved to tears than men.
And then, one fine day,
He decided to turn to his inner guidance
And asked:
‘Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all Life,
Can you tell me why it is that women cry so easily?’

The wise one within replied:
‘The female of your species
Is something extra special.
The part of Me that is the Father of all life
Created her in the image of
My beloved companion, the Great Mother.
The women of your world
Possess the Mother’s emotional and spiritual strength.
This helps them in times of crises
To carry the weight that is put on their shoulders,
Being loving and caring,
Gentle and supportive,
Capable of bringing comfort and healing
To everything that comes her way.

This gives the women of your world
The inner strength to endure childbirth and
Even the rejection that often
Meets her from her own children later in life,
Just like many of you to this day refuse to know
The Great Mother and Me.

Her strength is in your mother,
The same as in all other women.
It enables many of them to keep going
When others are giving up.
Their love makes them willing to care for
And steer the boat of their families through hard times,
Sickness, depression and death of the physical body
Frequently without complaining.

Wise ones love their children the way I,
The great Father/Mother of all life,
Love each one of you,
Totally and unconditionally,
Without expecting anything in return.
That’s why mothers, even when they have been
Upset and hurt badly by their children,
Do not stop loving them.

The high emotional sensitivity of the feminine
Connects women with the feelings of those around them.
Their empathy enables them to forgive their children
For the errors and mistakes they inevitably make.
Wise ones realise that each has to walk their
Own pathway through life,
Mothers as well as their offspring.
Even though they share their children’s anxieties and fears,
They do their best to use what their own life has taught them
To alleviate those of their children.

That’s how it comes about that your mother
Is capable of loving the men in her life,
Starting with her father, her husband and you,
In spite of any masculine shortcomings you may display.
She knows that a good husband would not dream of
Hurting or harming his wife,
But that sometimes you are sent tests and trials
That are designed to bring forth and develop
Someone’s inner strength.
Wise women uses theirs to stand by
Anyone who is in need of it,
Through thick as much as through thin.

The feminine is the soul of your world and all worlds.
Same as the Great Mother, the feminine of your world
Is My truly beloved.
Woman is part of the soft and sensitive,
Caring, nurturing and loving
Part of Me that is the Goddess.
I am Her masculine counterpart,
Which to many of you is known as God.
I am alive in Her and through Her
The whole of My Creation has come into being,
Including you and all My other children of the Earth.

Woman is the Goddess’s representative on the Earth plane.
The women in your life are outer manifestations
Of your own inner woman, your delicate and sensitive
Feminine side, your soul.
Take good care of both of them
And avoid causing them unnecessary suffering,
As on the inner plane all life is one.
Therefore, everybody else’s pain is also your pain,
And every tears that are shed anywhere are your tears.
They are tears of your whole world.

Because of her high emotional sensitivity,
Woman can shed tears much more easily then man.
They are her safety valve when she feels hurt and upset,
It’s hers to use whenever the need for it arises.
Her tears never are a sign of weakness but of strength.
Quite frequently they are wept
For the sake and on behalf of
The suffering of the whole of humankind.

The Healing Properties Of Tears

Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - The Healing Properties Of Tears

Baby cried the day the circus came to town,
‘Cos she didn’t like parades just passing by her.
So she painted on a smile and took up with some clown
And she danced without a net upon the wire.
I know a lots about her ‘Cos you see,
Baby is an awful lot like me.

Baby saw the day they pulled the big top down.
They left behind her dreams among the litter.
And the different kind of love she thought she’d found
Was nothing more than sawdust and some glitter
But baby can’t be broken ‘Cos you see,
She had the finest teacher, that’s me!

I taught her don’t cry out loud, just keep it inside
Learn how to hide your feelings, fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost had it all.
Don’t cry out loud, keep it inside.

Peter Allen & Carol Bayer Seeger

* * *

The above is by no means sound advice. Nothing could be further from the truth than to assume that weepiness is a sign of the onset of some kind of illness. I can tell you from first hand experience that quite the opposite is true and that the ability to weep indicates a state of emotional and spiritual well-being. We are emotional beings and it is important for us to occasionally have some good emotional outpourings for the cleansing and purifying of our system. If you have ever tasted any of your tears when they roll down your face, you are sure to have noticed how bitter they taste.

Not for nothing does the Jesus legend in St Matthew 5:4 tell us: ‘Blessed are those who mourn [and weep], for they shall be comforted.’ But how? I see weeping as God’s/the Universe’s/Nature’s way of comforting and healing those whose feelings and emotions have been hurt and wounded. Delete the words that don’t appeal to you, as each one has the same meaning.

The great wisdom and love of our Creator reflects itself in the wonderful way crying rids our physical bodies of salts and toxins. Not letting them flow freely on a regular basis can lead to arthritic conditions later in life. It is hardly surprising that rheumatism and arthritis are so rampant in our world, when there is so little awareness about the true nature of tears. If you do not believe me, ask your great-uncle Tom or someone like him, who has been suffering from one of those conditions, for a long time.

Go up to this person when they are warming and nursing their arthritic joints by the fireside. Surprise them by asking: ‘When did you last have a good cry?’ The likelihood is that they will laugh into your face: ‘Me, cry? I never cry. Haven’t cried since I fought in the trenches in the First World War! Don’t bother me with questions like that, I’ve got me arthritis to see to.’ They’ll never believe you, but if from time to time they’d had a good cry, they’d still have their mobility. And if you act upon what you know now, you’ll never lose yours!

But that’s not all! During crying our body releases an anti-depressant, which our own glandular system produces. That is why one feels cleansed, refreshed, restored and comforted, after a good outpouring. With infinite wisdom, God created us to be emotional beings so that we could experience the world of our feelings, and also gave us a natural outlet for them. The wise ones among us act upon this knowledge! Should you want to understand better what happens to our bodies after crying, take a good look at the countryside after a downpour. See and feel what nature is like, try to become a part of it, when it has been freshly scrubbed, and everything is green and wonderfully vibrant once again!

Weeping clearly is not an illness, unless we make it into one by believing that we must be ill because we are so weepy, if you see what I mean. I have explained the process in such detail in the hope that, from now onwards, you will rest safely in the knowledge that there is nothing wrong with you for feeling the way you will be doing, a lot of the time. However, a word of warning should not come amiss! If you would like to avoid being considered a nuisance by the world around you, who does not understand what you are going through, you would be well advised not to fall into the trap of acting out the downside of Cancer, the sign that deals with home, mother and the past, ruled by the Moon.

Those born into the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, suffer from high emotional sensitivity and their feelings get hurt all too easily. Because of this they are frequently in danger of feeling excessively sorry for themselves. Especially people with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant in Cancer are well advised if they take care not to allow themselves too much to wallow in self-pity and on the look-out for a shoulder to cry and lean on. It’s astonishing how unaware they can be of how trying that is for those around them to cope with.

Needless to say, that’s not what transformation is about! It’s about coming home into and healing – each their own inner home! What’s at stake here is the re-discovery of our own inner centre. This is the place from which all true strength comes and the only place in the whole wide world where we can find true peace through re-establishing our inner connection with the source of all life, our Creator Father/Mother. As some truly ancient soul memories are stirred up in this process, unpleasant though it frequently is, it is not surprising that while one still looks at things too superficially some of these memories seem to want to overwhelm and haunt us. These experiences are not meant to exacerbate us, but come to us for the perfectly good and sound purpose of releasing them, once and for all, so that the past can be blessed, healed and forgiven.

By far the easiest way of doing this through coming to terms with the fact that life on Earth is not our true reality but a place of learning. Like in any school each one of us has to take part in every lesson Earth life has to offer, because they alone can help us grow and make progress in our individual evolution and that of our whole world. I hope and pray that being aware that you are likely to be unusually sensitive and touchy whilst undergoing your personal transformation will assist you in being as kind, gentle, compassionate, loving and patient with yourself, as you would be with a small wounded child, who does not understand the world too well, as yet.

After all, that’s what we all in truth are, certainly in the eyes of God. Therefore, create your own nurturing space and go into it as frequently as you can. This will help you to find your own inner strength, which you will discover and be able to tap into through the healing of your inner connection with God. Once it has been established, you will discover that you will never feel the need to lean on others or yearn for another shoulder to cry on, because you will prefer to draw upon your own inner strength, which is the purpose of the whole exercise.

Having mentioned the therapeutic value of crying, I would like to draw your attention to one or two more things. It is good, right and important – especially for the male of the species – to indulge our feelings when we feel sad and lonely, and in need of a good cry, because all the pain that is within us can then flow out. As this is a cleansing and healing process, we ignore it to our detriment. It is alright to let it happen, but not all the time! We must also be willing to be helped and to help ourselves. How much truth there is in the saying: ‘God helps those who help themselves!’ If we sit around doing nothing but cry, we are guilty of wallowing and drowning in self-pity. Such a lack of self-discipline will get us nowhere!

Spiritually, each one of us is a small child of God. For a very long time, we are unable to understand the difficulties we have had in the past and/or are experiencing now. Why did and does everything happen to us and why are we hurting so much? It is our birthright, at all times, not only when we are going through a difficult patch, to reach out for the hand of God, to bless and heal us, as well as for the helping hands of our spirit guides and Angels. When we do this, the channels of communication between us and them open and they can draw ever closer to bring us all the comfort and healing we need. Without asking this would be impossible and if we deny ourselves our crying and calling out for help, no healing can take place within us.

In The Name Of Love

Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents And Children - In The Name Of Love

The following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides from the book ‘Spiritual Unfoldment’, which was first published in the 1940s: ‘The law of life is love and in the course of many lifetimes every human being is destined to evolve into a young God * and that is someone who loves God’s way, totally, unconditionally and above all wisely and being able to give without expecting anything in return. However, in the early stages of your earthly education you frequently misunderstand sentiment as love. During that phase of your development you try to cover your weaknesses and faults by saying that you are doing things in the name of love.

‘Alas, for as long as you are blinded in this way you cannot yet perceive the true needs of those around you, i.e. their spiritual requirement for learning, each through their own experiences, so that through this you grow in understanding and wisdom. This prevents you from giving real service. It causes you to give foolishly in ways that indulge the other one and indirectly your own selfishness. This brings to mind devoted parents who give their children everything they demand, in the belief that what they are doing is an expression of their love. Instead of creating opportunities through which their offspring can learn and grow, such parents are robbing their youngsters of the means for self-development and self-expression.

‘More highly evolved parents are aware that the Great Mother allows all Her children to come to their own decisions and make their own mistakes, so they can learn from them and do better next time round. Being a wise parent does not mean you are cold and indifferent towards your children. Quite the opposite is true. Your love is so great and you are so wise that you recognise your children’s requirement for experiencing life, each in its own unique and special way. The greatest gift any parent can give their offspring is as early as possible encouraging them to come to their own conclusions and make their own decisions. When you have learnt to love God’s way, you will know when to give and when to withhold something and for how long, as this helps your child to learn how to appreciate the value of things.

‘Too many sweets in more than one sense can be the cause of severe bilious attacks! If you indulge those around you and give them all they want, mistaking this to be love, in due course you are likely to create a spiritual bilious attack that will be as uncomfortable for your loved ones as for you. Human motherly love with its maternal instincts in its lowest form expresses itself as possessiveness that has its roots in selfishness. Experiencing this is an inevitable part of humankind’s early earthly education.

‘The higher you move on the evolutionary spiral of life, the more the caring and nurturing Divine aspects of maternal love in both women and men come to the fore of their consciousness and gradually take over their whole being. This kind of love is creative and endlessly giving. It manifests itself in the creation of every new life. In the long evolutionary process that follows each birth Divine love constantly endeavours to assist its creation to become ever more beautiful and perfect. In the case of human beings this is achieved when all aspects of their nature are integrated and working together peacefully and harmoniously, the way they are doing in God.

‘As you mature into spiritual adulthood, you are familiar with your own true nature and why you are taking part in earthly life. In your lifetimes as women or men in which you play the role of a parent, you no longer look at your children as your property. You know that they are not of you, but merely have come through you. This awareness makes it easier for you to steer the youngsters in your charge in the right direction. Because you realise that your children are on the Earth for the same reasons that you are, if their natural gifts * are different from your interests and inclinations, you would not dream of forcing them to follow in your footsteps. Aware that their talents, like yours, are likely to have taken many lifetimes to develop and that with the necessary encouragement in this one they may fully unfold, you do your best to support your children.

‘In some of your lifetimes you appear as a man and on other occasions as a woman. Depending on your Karma and what kind of life lessons are most beneficial for you, you are sometimes required to act the part of a father or a mother. And how does your mind react when you realise that in some of your lifetimes you could have been the son or daughter of the person who is your child in this one? So, enjoy your children as gifts for a time, the same as everything else you are allowed access to in your earthly existence. Glorify and protect Mother Earth, dear Friends, as one of the many physical and spiritual manifestations of the Great Mother of all life. Each one of you, women and men alike, are another one.’

About Children

Children at play - About Children, Kahlil Gibran - Rays of Wisdom

A woman held her babe against her bosom and said:
‘Speak to us of children’,
And the Prophet replied: ‘Your children are not your children;
They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing to experience itself.
Your children come through you, but they are
Neither of you nor from you;
And although for a time, they are with you,
They do not belong to you.
You may give them your love, but not your thoughts,
For they have to think their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies, but not their souls,
Because they dwell in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
But you will visit it again, when you return to Earth
As a child in future lifetimes.
 
You may strive to be like them;
Be young and see your world through the eyes of a child again,
But do not seek to make them like you,
For life neither goes backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which life sends forth Its children
As living arrows.

The Divine Archer alone can see their mark and yours
Upon the path of the Infinite.
With His might he bends each one of you into shape,
So that all His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the Archer’s hand be with gladness;
For as much as He loves the arrow that flies,
He loves the bow that is stable.

He particularly loves parents, who give their children roots to grown in
And the freedom to fly when their time has come to do so;
Who as their children grow up, slowly step back and set them free,
Encouraging them to learn from their own experiences,
And to dream their own dreams;
Who do all they can to help their children
To fulfil their own highest potential, not their parents’.

The Archer loves wise parents and teachers,
Who tell the children in their care that they are the children of God
And that therefore one is as precious and unique as the other;
Who respect them because they know that even when a child is still living
In a smaller body than their own, it has nonetheless
Come into our world as a fully developed soul and spirit in its own right,
Who may have a long history of evolution behind it
That could have taken more lifetimes than those of its parents.

Wise parents tell their offspring that they are certainly not some kind
Of appendix of theirs and that they have come into this life
To learn, evolve and grow some more through their own experiences,
The same as they are doing and will always continue to do.
When their children go to school, they point out to them that they are
Learning for themselves and for life itself,
Not only for this lifetime, but for Eternity.
They explain to them the laws of the Universe and that because of this,
Whatever anyone sends out to life has to return to them.
And they teach by their good example that it is necessary
To have some input into this life, before one can expect
To get anything of value from it.

I Know You By Heart

Rays Of Wisdom - Comfort For The Bereaved - Poetry And Prose - I Love You By Heart

 Midnights in Winter.
The glowing fire
Lights up your face in orange and gold.
I see your sweet smile
Shine through the darkness,
Its line is etched in my memory,
So I’d know you by heart.

Mornings in April.
Sharing our secrets,
We’d walk until the morning was gone.
We were like children,
Laughing for hours.
The joy you gave me lives on and on.
‘Cos I know you by heart.

I still hear your voice
On warm Summer nights
Whispering like the wind.
You left in Autumn,
The leaves were turning.
I walked down roads of orange and gold.
I saw your sweet smile,
I heard your laughter,
You’re still here beside me every day.

‘Cos I know and still love you by heart.

Eva Cassidy wrote this song for her mother.

A Course In Relationship Healing

Rays Of Wisdom - Words Of Wisdom For Relationship Healing - Human Relationship Course

A lifetime spent in Libra,
The sign of the peacemaker and relationships,
Ruled by Venus,
The planet of beauty, peace and harmony,
Has taught me that good manners are
The grease that is required for smoothing the wheels
Of human relationships and essential for
Mending and healing even the most difficult ones.
Libra is one of the Air signs, responsible for the
Development of human mental capabilities.
In Libra it teaches us to approach all relationships
With our inborn charm and intelligence.

And that’s why for me, with the passing of time,
The most important words have become:
•    ‘I made a mistake. I truly am sorry.
I want to learn from it and do better.
Will you help me and meet me halfway?’
•    ‘You did a good job!’
•    ‘What do you think?’
•    ‘If you please!’
•    ‘Do you mind?’
•    ‘Thank you!’
•    ‘We’
•    The least important word for me is: ‘I’

Speaking the truth is a life-long habit of mine
And I never say anything I don’t really mean.

New Hope For Childless Couples Or How To Become A Miracle Co-Worker

Rays of Wisdom - Healing Corner For Parents & Children - New Hope For Childless Couples

Being Like The Angels – Immortal And Androgynous

Finding a more spiritual approach to all aspects of our lives is essential when one wishes to make one’s contribution towards creating a more peaceful future for us and our world. The spiritual wisdom we are constantly finding helps us to build our existence on more solid foundations than has ever been possible before. As the way we handle our sexuality and the energies involved is one of the most delicate issues, in my view it deserves a closer examination. Human sexuality is part of God’s pure creative/spiritual energy and all sexual activities are making use of something extremely valuable and precious. It therefore demands and deserves to be handled by us wisely and with the greatest care and respect.

Created in the image of God, women and men alike contain in equal measure the masculine as well as feminine energies of their Divine Father/Mother. Yes, we are part of God and God is part of us. In a sense, therefore, we ourselves are the ones who are the creators of all that is. Yet, we do well to always remember that this does not alter the fact that nothing happens and no new creation of anything, on the Earth plane or anywhere else in the whole of the Universe, ever takes place without the help, the will and the consent of God and the Angels. Let us never overlook that the final decision whether new life is created on any of its levels, and removed again from its present plane when it has served the purpose it was designed for, rests with the Great Father/Mother of all life, the Universal God and Goddess. New physical bodies to roam the Earth, human or otherwise, are no exception.

One of the most puzzling features of us and our world is that we all contain many dualities and polarities and that our world is one of paradoxes. Discovering, exploring and learning to live with them is probably the most urgent and vital part of our role as pioneers of a New Age. A great many experiences are in store for us that have never been tried before on the earthly plane. One of them is androgyny, the state of wholeness which was never lost on the inner spiritual levels of life.

However, to teach us the meaning of feminine and masculine, this had to be given up during the earlier parts of our earthly education, but as soon as human souls have fully imbibed this lesson, the time approaches for fully taking possession of their sleeping inner partner again. Many are ready now to integrate this part of themselves, so that in the process they may become whole and healed. The evidence is all around us that this is presenting us and our world with many new experiences and challenges of a very different kind to those we encountered during past ages.
 
The Bible in St. Mark 12:25 gave us an early inkling of the wholeness that eventually waits for all of us: ‘For when they rise from the dead, men neither marry women, nor are women given in marriage to men; but they are like the Angels in Heaven.’ Having grown into spiritual adulthood and reached the degree of understanding we have found by now, I believe this teaching could – maybe should – be replaced by: ‘Every human soul, from the moment of its creation, has been betrothed to its Highest or God Self. At the right moment each one rises from its state of spiritual catalepsy of not knowing who and what they truly are, takes possession of its spiritual self and re-discovers its immortality. Having reached this point, men will no longer need women to make them whole and women will not require men to do this for them either. Both genders will then get married to their Highest Self and together with it return into being like the Angels, immortal and androgynous.’

During vast periods, each stretching over thousands of years, the feminine aspect of life was developed in our world by dominating it. To keep our world in balance, the same happened during other epochs to its masculine counterpart. This led to an over-development of the masculine faculties in our world. The ever increasing ferocity and destructiveness of the wars we have fought and still are fighting against each other and the devastation caused by them bear witness to how God’s masculine power to create and destroy at will can and does get out of hand unless it is handled in the right way.

Looking at the present state of our world one could be tempted to wonder sometimes whether we have learnt anything from the events of the past. They show us what happens when pure masculine logic and cold reason on their own are allowed to dictate the ways of our world, without getting the benefit of the harnessing, controlling and mellowing influence of the feminine wisdom of the Goddess, the nurturer and protector of all life. She alone knows when it is wise to give birth and when to destroy, when and where new creations shall come into being, and something old should be removed to make room for them.

The exaggerated emphasis of the masculine of the past also happened for wise higher reasons. It was necessary, so that the human, scientific and technical progress could be achieved that is essential if we and our world are to cope successfully with the tasks that are undoubtedly waiting for us during the Age of Aquarius. Now that at long last our race has reached the evolutionary point when sufficient numbers of us are ready to find their way back into the above described state of wholeness, it is heart-warming to witness the end of the patriarchy and male dominance.

The past is teaching us that when either the masculine or the feminine energies are required to function each on their own, the result can only be an inner and an outer world out of balance, the way both parts still very largely are. The good news is that we are working our way out of this unbalanced state. The most important step forward has been giving equal rights to men and women. Roll on the time when this finally extends to all the people in our world. To create the new world we are dreaming of, the masculine and feminine energies within ourselves and our world, have to be reunited and balanced. To enable each one of us to give of our best and fulfil our highest potential, both parts have to learn how to work peacefully and harmoniously together, the way they do in God.

Unravelling The Mysteries Of Life

To help us do this, especially those of God’s nature and our own, it is necessary to come to terms with the fact that our God is one of duality and that life on the Earth plane is a reflection and an outer physical manifestation of everything that is in God – and therefore also in us. The masculine aspect of the Divine is the power of the Father; its counterpart is the love and wisdom of the Mother. As above, so below; in human beings of both genders this manifests itself as the masculine aspect being conscious in men and working from the subconscious in women, and vice versa.

Couples who wish that a child should be created through them, do well if during their lovemaking they bear in mind that the words of the Master Jesus in St. John 14:10-11 also apply to them: ‘Do you not believe that I am with my Father and my Father is with me? The words that I speak I do not speak of myself, but my Father who abides with me does these works. Believe that I am with my Father and my Father is with me, and if not, believe because of the works [He does through me].’

When the consciousness of highly evolved souls has cleansed itself of all selfishness, the need for power struggles between them has vanished from their relationship and they no longer feel like clinging overmuch onto each other or their loved ones. Aware that no power between Heaven and Earth can ever destroy a loving bond that two people have created between them in the course of many lifetimes, they know that the promise that love is forever is not an empty one. So, when for one of them the time for parting from this plane has come, letting go of each other creates no undue suffering and problems for the one left behind.

The coming together of these lovers is an act of worshipful devotion that honours the creative forces of the Universe, in full awareness that they are as much alive in them as in all life. This allows them to offer themselves and a large part of their lives and each other unto life itself as a living sacrifice on the altar of the God of love. The more happily such souls bend their knees before the Highest to reveal their readiness to act as priest and priestess on Its shrine, the more likely it is that their wish will be granted. ‘Thy will, Great Father/Mother of all life, not ours shall be done. If you find us worthy of being granted the gift of a child, it shall be gratefully received in the fullness of time.’

Souls of this calibre appreciate their own wholeness and therefore also respect that of others. Knowing that they already are whole within themselves saves them from seeking to be made so by others. This sets them free for a far more profound experience of merging and blending their inner and outer God and Goddess energies than would otherwise be possible. Their loving union is a demonstration that they are ready to act in full consciousness as co-creators with God by offering themselves as a channel through which a new physical body for a third soul can be created – not by them, but by God. With this the Divine lays the power to transform their earthly lovemaking into a sacred act of worship and devotion into human hands.

All we as earthlings can ever do when we are yearning for any experience is to show our readiness and our willingness to do the work that may be required for us, to bring it about, in the hope that this is setting the wheels in motion. In the meantime, there is nothing for it but waiting and trusting that the wisdom of the Highest will fulfil our desire, so that when we are wishing for a child that a strong and healthy body will be created through us, to be used by someone who is ready in the world of spirit for another lifetime on the Earth plane. There is never any shortage of these. Many are at all times waiting to be allowed the privilege of re-entry into another lifetime’s experiences on the material plane and all we can do is hope and pray that one of them may be destined to honour us with its presence.

In sexual unions of any kind each remains an individual in its own right. But, when two souls are proceeding in the above described manner it enables them to function as one and in full consciousness of their true role as Earth God and Goddess. Aware that they are merely acting as channels and vessels for the creative Universal forces to work through, they then take part in the sacred act of creation with love for each other and for God, with true humility and reverence for the Great Father/Mother of all life, and also for the life they are longing to be given through them.

And so, they go worshipfully down on their knees before the throne of the Highest and request that if their Karma allows it and when conditions and time are right, a new body and a vehicle for an incoming soul and spirit may be created through them. They are aware that every spirit is an eternal seed of God, a son/daughter of God, born from the heart of God, the same as they themselves are. Should their wish be granted, they will appreciate that their child is a gift that does not belong to them and therefore will never be theirs to keep. It is merely coming to them to be taken care of for a predestined time.

Just imagine! God and the Angels are the only ones who know how long ago all this was written into the great book of life, before either one of our lovers ever started to dream of a child of their own. And who knows? Wise old owls that such parents are, they are sure to appreciate that the potential age of the new arrival, their very own little owl, in terms of how many times it may have been recycled for gathering its own experiences in the Earth’s environment, could be far greater than that of both parents together. Now, there’s a humbling thought for you.

The Denial Of A Child

The soul is the soft and sensitive feeling side of the small earthly self in both genders.  This part is constantly trying to communicate with us by giving us some kind of feedback, the meaning of which is for us to decipher. Any illnesses, discomfort and diseases that manifest themselves in our bodies are invariably messages from our soul that something in our life is amiss and in urgent need of attention.

I feel intuitively that learning to work with the creative forces of the Universe in the above described manner could be good news for couples who would dearly wish to have a child but fail to conceive. There must be a strong possibility that this could be due to an inner spiritual blockage that has been created by a false perception of themselves and their roles in the act of creation of another being. Opening their consciousness and working on finding a better understanding of the processes of life may bring them the required healing that will make conception possible.

I believe that at least for some couples childlessness may represent the message from their Highest Self that, if they so wish, for them the matter is waiting to be approached from a different, i.e. more spiritual perspective. Those who willingly submit themselves to the learning and growing they are sure to find by undergoing this kind of experience there must be a strong possibility that in due course they will be rewarded by the arrival of a child. The great longing and yearning for an offspring in itself is always a signal from our inner and Highest Self that our problem cannot be resolved on the earthly level of life alone. Our God Self is part of the highest forces of life; it is always trying to coax us into entering into a new relationship with the Universe, to help us find an altogether more spiritual approach to all aspects of our own nature and of all life.

It is good to know that all things pass and that everything is constantly evolving and changing, and that this also includes karmic conditions. God is the only constant in all life and this is the authority who is alive in you and me, in everybody and everything, and who is waiting to be called upon to help, guide and protect each one of us from within their own heart. God is the small still voice of conscience that knows the way of all things. The love of God has provided that Karma is not something that is set in concrete; it is not meant to last forever, as many seem to believe. Nothing could be further from the truth! We ourselves are the living proof of this, because each new lifetime presents us with many opportunities for doing better and for resolving any outstanding issues we have brought with us from the past.

For people who desperately want a child but fail to conceive it is highly likely that their souls, together with the wise ones in charge of them, chose the very situation they are presently in as a way of helping them, that is their earthly personalities, to find their way back home into the realisation of their true nature and the oneness with God. I believe that for those who are affected by this predicament, the more intense their suffering, the more possible it is that for them this could be a preparation for a happy ending.

If a miracle is waiting to be worked through you, who would you be to deny it? What more wonderful proof could anyone wish for as a demonstration that with the help and the will of God all things are possible and all conditions can be healed? If you go this way willingly, a sign to the outer world and a demonstration of God’s power that can be recognised by even the most stubborn disbelievers may be created through you, to bring renewed hope for all others who are at present grappling with the same predicament.

If that is written in the great book of life for you and for them, then it will happen – irrespective of what any of the experts you consulted thus far told you. Against their word, I hold steadfast to my inner conviction that tells me what you truly need is healing through re-aligning yourself with your Highest or God Self. If all this is news to you and you do not know how to proceed, ask for help and pray that the way be shown to you.

Listen carefully and follow the guidance of your Highest of God Self from within. Learn to trust that it really does know what is best for you. Open your inner eyes and your perception for miracles. Unless you are willing to see one you will be unable to recognise one, should it comes your way. Expect a miracle! By believing that they can and do happen, we are helping them along. We declare our faith and trust in the powers of the Divine and are creating a channel through which it can work.

And let’s face it, could there be any greater miracle, magic and mystery than the processes of birth and death, or a more spiritual experience? Miracles are happening all the time. Yet, for a long time on our evolutionary path we take them for granted, because we still lack the spiritual vision and understanding to appreciate the creative power of God that is the true motivation behind all life. But when our inner eyes have opened, in this aspect of life, like in no other, the creativity of God reveals itself in all its beauty. The greatest lesson in humility is that as human beings we can only want a child, but we cannot make it happen. As nothing is left to chance and accidents and everything has to work in accordance with the Great Plan of life, God determines whether or not anyone is worthy of receiving the gift of an offspring and if so, when it should be conceived and born.

What greater power could there be than God’s? It not only controls our lives down to their smallest details but also brings new Universes, planets and solar systems and everything that dwells in them into being. It holds them in their places, moves them through space and – when they have outlived their usefulness – destroys them again, at will? That certainly puts our existence on this planet into perspective for me. One marvels at the magnificence of life that is almost too great to grasp for our small earthly minds. Then at the latest my soul wants to go down on its knees, join the Swedish Pastor Carl Boberg’s and sing:

O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made.
I see the stars; I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the Universe displayed.
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
