We’ve all heard stories of people who’ve experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world? According to pioneering biologist Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.,Read the rest of this article»

Heard Behavior by Design
Clearly the family isn’t what it used to be. But what is family? Guardians? Protectors? The first and deepest teachers?
Very, very few adults are independent, true individuals. Very, very fewRead the rest of this article»

Go Within and Reconnect to Your Source
We have already considered Source can have different meanings for different people. Don’t get caught up in semantics. Use whatever term for the Source that feels right to you.
I call Source God, Source or Higher Self. As we have already considered, children tend to be naturally connected to Source. Let me offer an example from my own youth. I remember when I was abused at the age of two, almost three. I was very frightened about telling anyone. The boy who abused me told me that he would kill me if I said a word to anyone.
I really didn’t know exactly what he meant, but I knew that it was very bad. I also knew that if you “killed” an ant it stopped moving forever. I didn’t tell anyone about the abuse for about three years. I still remained connected to Source.
The dark terrified me. This was probably partially normal for my age, but intensified due to the fact that I was abused in the dark.
Every night I had an experience that remains very vivid to me to this very day. I would close my eyes to go to sleep. Suddenly, I would be falling into a dark spiraling hole. Falling was a most joyous, exhilarating ride. As I was freefalling, I felt completely supported by someone or something.
Love surrounded and carried me. Fear was not a part of this experience at all. Just before falling a sleep, as I got to the end of the hole or tunnel, a bright light filled the space. When I fell back into the space, I was out like a light.
Especially interesting to me: as soon as the light came on, I fell asleep for the night. I realized years later that as a child, every night I connected to my Source/God. I fell back into the lap of God.
As a child, all I knew was that the experience felt good, so I was happy to go for the ride every night. When Source calls a child, the child is usually wise enough not to question the call, and simply follow.
Now, in the present, I’m talking about the natural way that children will listen to God. There are all kinds of stories about how children survive tragedy because they hear someone say for example, “play dead”, or “don’t walk that way, instead take the next street”. The child is left unharmed because the child listened.
“There wasn’t anyone there”, is the report a child offers. The little one just listened, followed directions, and remained safe.
The first verse from Alabama’s song, Angels Among Us, tells us:
I was walking home from school on a cold winter day.
Took a shortcut through the woods, and lost my way.
It was getting late, and I was scared and alone.
But then a kind old man took my hand and led me home.
Mama couldn’t see him, but he was standing there.
And I knew in my heart, he was the answer to my prayers.
The singers offer us a couple of other lines in the song:
Oh I believe there are angels among us.
To guide us with a light of love.
The title of this song sounds like a lot of the stories shared by children who have been in perilous situations.
It is impossible to be connected to Source/God and experience fear simultaneously.
