The Brain Tumor Chronicles


12) Hello Dear Friends!

I was back to teaching on Sunday 1-26-2014 for the 13 installment of “The Brain Tumor Chronicles,  and after a 6 week sabbatical  I had a lot of Holy Spirit Inspired teachings and practices that I am excited to share with you.  I know that many friends are going through not only illnesses but many things in your lives and these practices may be truly helpful.   Enjoy the FREE audio below: 

Learning to live Above our present circumstances can be easily done is we look at our thoughts.  My Inner Teacher said, and I love this: 

Start at the present moment—accepting things exactly as they are—and search for My way in the midst of those circumstances."

"I have given you an amazing gift—the freedom to choose. You may choose to think about anything you wish. I am asking that you choose to think about Me [God, Holy Spirit, Jesus, wisdom, LOVE]." – 

I love the idea that free will is about choosing what we want to think.

I was also guided to an amazing prayer practice called “welcoming prayer” that I had used often to actually relieve physical pain in the middle of the night. 

Rest – Welcome- Surrender [let go]

"Instead of letting problems discourage you, use them as reminders to seek Me..." -Jesus Today by Sarah Young.

This is great advice; let all discomfort be an opportunity to return to the heart.

Much Love to you my friends!

9) If you have  been listening to the “Brain Tumor Chronicles” here is #10 recorded on Sunday 9/29/2013.
     In this one, after reading about several spiritual sages who died of various illnesses I became intrigued – wanting to understand more.   It has always been obvious to me that no matter whether one is “cured” or not of a disease, every single one of us will eventually drop this body.
                        So in this audio I feel that my Inner Teacher clarified my understanding somewhat on death, dying, illness and how to take focus off of all that. 

 



************************************************************************
8)In this 9th installment of “The Brain Tumor Chronicles” more on practice came through and really how to get to know the True Self. 


 


****************************************************
7)Here is #8 installment of my series on “The Brain Tumor Chronicles”.  Again the theme Holy Spirit is focused on is devotion and practice, and this one also includes some good stuff on healing relations, and we even get into sugar addiction – HA!
Thank you dear Inner Teacher for leading me and guiding me each week to deeper practice and thus…more bliss.

6) Hello friends, for those of you listening to “The Brain Tumor Chronicles”, here is #7 from 9/1/2013.   In this one lots came up about  Self-Abidance and aging.

As we age we experience loss and it forces us to look at the props we’ve been using to prop up the false self.  Suffering is caused when we try to cling to what we had instead of embracing what is here now.  I am enjoying the transition because I am letting it be what is – willingness to embrace the new.  I don’t know for sure but it seems that, for me anyway, going deeper into practice of Self-Abidance is why I feel expansive and happy.  So all that and more comes up in this one! Enjoy!
 




**************************************************************
5) This entry is part 6 of the Brain Tumor Chronicles recorded to an internet audience  on 8/18/2013. It is about 55 min. and address "emptiness/self-surrender" and how much devoted practice can make a major difference in the quality of our lives.  Enjoy!

4) Sunday August 11, 20133 - this entery is part 5 of the BT chronicles ;)
 Good Morning and Happy Sunday Friends!
I will be traveling to San Diego today for a big family gathering and so will not 
Be available at my regular teaching time on “Awakening Together” today.
However, on 11/13/2011 I was inspired to teach from NTI Revelation 4, and that talk remains one of my favorites because Holy Spirit spoke to me and through me in such a powerful way that day on the importance of relinquishing the false belief in separation. 

About every few months I am prompted to listen to it again, and as it happened I listened this week and realized it would be a worthy addition to the “Brain tumor chronicles” because the Belief in Separation is the Grand-daddy belief, and as we deal with that one, we relinquish all false beliefs that keep us in the muck and mire of the illusory though system and in the sorrow and suffering of the imposter self. In the link below on teachings from NTI - it is #21.

The audio is only about 30 minutes, and David may be playing it live during my session at this link to. Enjoy Today! MUCH LOVE!

21) Recorded to a live audience on 4/14/13

Over the last 3 weeks I have been having some really weird experiences!  As it turns out, they appear to be a sign of spiritual movement of some sort.  During my Sunday Teaching I attempted to describe it.  What also comes across here is how we are truly guided in this universe.  Some of you who were there have asked me to post this recording since my microphone was going in and out… So here it is.  Enjoy!


 



**********************************
20) Recorded on 3/31/13: Easter Sunday

Cease listening to the voice of crucifixion,
                                       suffering and separation,
                                                 that voice that you think of as
                                                                "my thoughts".
The Voice for Love is calling to You now.
Are you ready to increase your willingness
                               to be free?
Then listen to the voice
                       that does not crucify.
Are you ready to awaken
                               to Life?
Are you ready to awaken 
                         to You?
                                   Yes!

Enjoy this audio where I speak of this and so much more

Audios on: Healing Relationships

10)Hi Friends,
Over the years in my practice, I have many conversations with people about family relationships.  I have found it so interesting that so many of our family stories are the same.  In my teaching today, to my surprise what came through is a talk on the healing I have gained through the pain in my family relationships. Several of the people present during my talk really related to what I had to say and asked me to be sure to post this audio.  I am posting it in the hopes that it may help others navigate through painful family relationships.  Much love!
