We All Have Souls

When we add these four concepts about souls to the Western view of the world, we can explain almost everything that happens in physical and spiritual reality:

  • We all have souls.
  • Souls are divided into regions and each region performs a different function.
  • Beyond the four physical forces, there is a life force.
  • Souls use the life force to power themselves and connect with other souls.

When we learn to feel the souls that are in all of us — in everything — we escape from the illusion of isolation. Comments are appreciated.

Imagination and Creation

To imagine is to be part of the human heritage. To create is also to be part of the human heritage. Sometimes they happen at the same time, but not always.

Let’s look at the two lines of closely related beings. The first lives in solid physical reality. I call them humans. The other lives in a more fluid reality somewhat connected with physical reality. I call them Sidhe. Humans and Sidhe both come from the same ancestors, but they separated when the decided to try different kinds of reality.

When the Sidhe imagine, what they imagine is created. Continue reading and add your comment

The We All Have Souls Movement

When I designed business cards for We All Have Souls, I put the following words under the title of the book: “A book, a blog, a movement.” The book is written. You’re reading the blog. I had an idea of what the movement would look like, but the past two weeks have made my conception much clearer.

During that time I met with independent bookstore owners and librarians at the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association fall trade show. I also went to the King County Library System Celebration of Independent Publishers and taught my first class coming directly from the book We All Have Souls. Over the course of those events, many of my allies made suggestions for ways I could improve my message. I’d like to share my current message about the movement with you.

The We All Have Souls movement is centered on the idea that we, as individuals, would be better off if we all paid more attention to all the parts of our souls. Our practice communities would be better. And the world would be better. Continue reading and add your comment

The Devas of Science and Magic 2 — Notes about Healing the Earth

There are pools in soul reality where beings can safely meet. Synchronicity brings the beings together because it is the right time for them to get together. In an ongoing synchronicity, there is information about what the beings need to do and energy to accomplish what needs to be done.

Betsy Bergstrom teaches that after a soul healing we need to let the River of Blessings flow through all the places that were healed. I believe this Pool of Blessings is the headwaters of the River of Blessings. I also believe that a blessing is just what is found here: a safe place to meet and energy and information to make a needed change.

I was in one of those pools with the devas of soul practices like shamanism, conjure, and energy healing. This is another side of the soul retrieval that I described last time [http://weallhavesouls.com/2017/09/26/the-devas-1/]. Continue reading and add your comment

The Devas of Science and Magic 1– Notes about Healing the Earth

We hear a lot about the harm that humans are causing the earth. Sometimes people talk about harming the soul of the earth, whom they call Gaia, Pachamama, and many other names. I believe the harm is real.

I also believe that humans need to do more than stopping our harmful activities. Because we can, we are here to heal past hurts, which may or may not have been caused by humans. Beyond that, we are here to make our physical reality and the souls connected with it more wonder-filled than they already are.

But, let’s be realistic about what we can do. Right now there is so much hoocha and negative life force that making something new probably needs to wait until we clean up the problems of the past.

And that’s what the upcoming series of “Notes about Healing” will look at. Continue reading and add your comment

Souls, Hate, Free Speech, and the Charlottesville Killing

It’s better to shine a light on a riot of flowers than to cast a Shadow on others in a riot of humans.

Hatred, hoocha, and negative life force are bubbling to the surface of American life. Let’s take a look at what is happening from a soul perspective.

We’re seeing the Shadow of America — all the dark impulses that are usually hidden beneath the surface of our culture. It is scary when it bubbles up to a level that we are aware of.

In a person, the Shadow usually lurks below the level of consciousness in the Wish or Will regions of the soul. In a group (America in this case) the Shadow lurks in parts of the population that are seldom seen by the majority of Americans. When the Shadow makes itself known, and we’re not part of the Shadow, we seldom know what to do with it.

In the Charlottesville situation, there are two sides. Let’s call them Blue and Red. Continue reading and add your comment

Updates on We All Have Souls and Speaking

We All Have Souls and I Think We Can Prove It

As you may have noticed, I took a break from writing for a while. It wasn’t planned, but other parts of my work seemed like they needed to be done instead. I’m back.

This time I have a couple of announcements and a quick request. My intention for next time is to start a series of posts on connection. I want to look at connection from the perspectives of martial arts, Inca medicine work, and the Sidhe.

The first announcement is that We All Have Souls and I Think We Can Prove It is available. Continue reading and add your comment

River of Sorrows and Tonglen

Last time [http://weallhavesouls.com/2017/04/07/river-of-blessings/] I wrote about mixing the River of Blessings and the River of Sorrows to create beauty. One of my observations was that we have lost the ability to empty the Rivers so they rise up and overwhelm us. This time I offer a brief look at tonglen, which is a way to empty the River of Sorrows.

Tonglen is a Tibetan Buddhist breathing meditation practice that helps us compassionately open our hearts to care for and reduce our own and others’ suffering.

The exercise opens our Heart Continue reading and add your comment

River of Blessings, River of Sorrows, and “Come Away O Human Child”

One view of the River of Blessings

I want to talk today about the River of Blessings, the River of Sorrows, and the poem “The Stolen Child” by William Butler Yeats. From these three elements I believe we can learn more about our souls’ purpose. The elements point out a path to a healthy soul and a well lived life… maybe.

I learned about the River of Blessings from Betsy Bergstrom < http://betsybergstrom.com>. When she teaches how to remove curses, she goes back to the beginning, where the curse was first made. It may be in this life. But most curses I have found go back many lives. At the moment a curse is created we can remove its power. The removal of the curse cascades through the generations to the present time, and beyond. I believe everything from the time of the curse removal to now is changed.

It’s the Gift You Got

Today I want to share something from Perry Edwards. Perry is one of my human co-creators in working with souls. We met, I believe, because Pachamama and Inti Tayta thought we could help each other out. Apus and dinosaur spirits were involved, too.

It’s the Gift You Got

by Perry Edwards 2/24/17

It’s the gift you got
now like it or not
one soul with you
and your body crew

So now jump for joy
every girl and boy
that soul in you
helps you know what to do

When you scream and shout
jump and let it all out
your soul’s running that show
not your body bro

Big emotional scene
your soul’s coming out clean
but when you’re walking around
that’s your body machine Continue reading and add your comment

Curses, that depossession didn’t work – and why!

Depossessions and curse removals don’t always work. Sometimes they make things worse. I’m about to give you an example of one of those and some ideas about how to be more successful.

Last time [http://weallhavesouls.com/2017/02/09/curses-through-many-lifetimes/] I looked at some of the issues related to curse removal. This time I want to look at a specific case that required some work to help the cursing entity as well as the client. I think both need to be considered in cases like this one.

My client was a male friend, whom I will call Y. He had a rough childhood which included abuse from his mother and older sister, whom I will call X. When Y asked me for help, both his mother and sister had died. It was clear that they were still negatively affecting Y even though he had separated himself from them for many years.

My team of incarnate and spirit helpers found place for the mother to go that separated her from Y. X was more of a problem. In the end we managed to force her into a secure place which we imagined as a room with mirrors so she could see what she had done, but not get out to affect Y. It was a hard struggle and everyone was hurt, a little or a lot, by the end of it.

Those of you who have read my thoughts about compassionate depossession Continue reading and add your comment
