Happy New Year!
I’m so grateful to actually participate in the changing of this planet at this time. With ThetaHealing's expansion throughout the world, it is now a group consciousness so those who have been working on their beliefs will witness healings much quicker and with more instantaneous changes as we become more clear in working with the rhythm of the planets and Universe. We ’ll see that with this year, the fruits of our labor will really be ripened to harvest.
Vianna had two wonderful webcasts in December: one for the practitioners and one for the teachers, as she does each month. Those of you who aren’t subscribed, I really invite you to contact Brandy (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign-up because you can actually see and hear Vianna live and send in questions either ahead of time or during the webcast. If you aren’t available at the time Vianna is presenting, you will be given a code to view it at your convenience. You can even view back webcasts if you want or get a year subscription receiving one webcast free. I will share some of Vianna’s “predictions” (remembering the future) from December’s webcasts interspersed with my own commentaries. And we can all remember the future for ourselves too, as this was taught in the recent Advanced workshop and the Manifestation and Abundance workshops.
2009 will actually be a good year and easier to move through than 2008. There will be many changes worldwide. It’s important to know which changes we’re responsible for and which ones are out of our control…in-other-words, how to be aware and change our co-dependent ways. The sadness and turmoil that people have been going through at the end of this past year is based astrologically…the moon being the closest to us than in the last 16 years (the moon regulates our emotions) and is now moving further away, which allows the energy to become less stressful and lighter.
Remember that all things can be changed through Creator-of-ALL right into our physical and emotional reality. I have quite a few articles about the brain and mind which are worthy of your time to view and /or read fully. These articles will help support you in understanding how your brain and mind work, and how they can be trained and expanded. We are not alone in experiencing a new way of being. We are not alone in any of our feelings unless we choose to isolate at some level. If you want to see your manifestations happen, work on the beliefs of whatever is going on in your life now…all your fears, doubts, disbeliefs and the 3 R’s (resentment, regret and rejection). I know you hear me say this often, but I’m glad to say that Vianna repeated this throughout the webcast. She, too, works on her beliefs.
Many ThetaHealers have the 5th Plane belief of “Healer, heal thyself.” It’s important to change this or actually step up to the plate and do the belief work necessary now so you don’t find yourself with a difficult healing challenge later. As practitioners, we need to be aware of our own emotions to be fully present for others. I’ve had to clear triggers right before a client comes in so I’m able to track my client’s beliefs during their session.
Starting this New Year, in wanting to see our manifestations happen, we first have to stop suppressing and denying to ourselves about how we really feel about ourselves and our lives. “New Age/Thought” people often want to “rise above a situation” which is indeed noble, but there is something missing…authenticity, realness. How many of you know when someone isn’t being real with you? Do you know what it means to be real…to be authentic yourself? So what I’m saying is “rising above” means that the situation first needs to be explored so you know where “above” really is, so you’re grounded and present. That’s why we use the questions of “what happened, how, why, when, who, what’s the worse thing that will happen, how does it serve you”. The process of exploration for yourself and with your clients will make the digging profoundly deeper and completely transformational.
Realize that when a client starts to go into their childhood issues and says, “Oh, my grandfather’s drinking and gambling had no affect on me or my family”, there lacks a show of honesty or authenticity in the situation. The feelings are someplace else. It’s important that we truly explore what we are feeling so we can just allow it to the surface during a digging easily. This takes the practitioner’s support to create a space of safety. It also takes the client's part in their willingness to explore their own feelings and understand how it correlates to their condition. Sometimes I have to make sure that the client is in their body by commanding and witnessing it happening. Sometimes I ask them what part of their body is tight so they can identify feelings in the body. Sometimes I ask them to give the part of the body that is tense, a voice. (if your shoulder could talk, what would it say about the persistent pain it experiences). I use my skills as a spiritual counselor to help the clients create safety and support in knowing their emotions.
Have you ever had a client who just spent 15 minutes (and many sessions) either seething at the bit about a person or situation that they are charged about, or talking about the situation incessantly saying all is forgiven, and then when you ask them,
“What would happen if you stopped resenting that person/situation?” or “How is this serving you to stay angry?” Or “What have you learned from this person/ situation?” you receive an answer like
“I’m really fine. I don’t resent them. It’s forgiven. We already worked on that.”
This is where you’d really want to trust yourself. Don’t be intimidated by their denial (fear). Look at them gently and directly (if in person) and say, “I think there might be some anger and resentment still here.” It’s important to stay with the Truth of the digging. You don’t need to test this emotional state on their fingers when it’s clear that they are in denial. (I’ve seen this… where the practitioner says to the client “Say…I feel angry.”) There is no need to go over the obvious.. Ask them the questions to get under the feeling to the belief.
ThetaHealing is an Art of Presence. This means that being with that person and being connected to Creator, you are being given an opportunity to experience a sense of their emotional charge and get another perspective from Creator of actually seeing the experience from the Highest level of Truth. You are stepping into their paradigm without taking it on. You are responsible for helping them see their own truth unconditionally… meaning your opinions don’t really matter and are best left out of the situation. You're giving a space for them to come to their own answers in a natural, progressive way. Share only what you hear from Creator in a way that the client can also understand the patterning. Get them to answer your questions, listen for the beliefs, witness the change with permission and witness Creator’s downloads. Check back to see how they feel when they look back at the person or situation.
And don’t stop digging (unless you run out of session time) until the client is completely discharged and has freed the person/situation from teaching them the lesson. Listen to their tone of voice when they answer you. Remember that all of our beliefs serve us even if they are negative.
There are different ways of doing digging. For years, I’ve watched people do surface digging. It’s like what you were shown in the Basic course on the first day--you identify a belief through a statement (i.e. I hate myself) and energy testing, watch Creator change it and then retest. Oftentimes, you’ll find that the belief tests as if it’s cleared. But perhaps if you retested it the next day, you might test that it’s returned.
Another way I’ve seen students digging is that they get just so far with their client, and don’t know where to go next. They’ll put in a couple of downloads or pull a belief, energy test and wait for the person to say they’re fine. They are using a mental process and forgetting that Creator is leading the session so they are missing the deeper issues and patterning. This is another reason that beliefs come back--the deeper patterning hasn’t been accessed or addressed yet. We know that Creator’s teachings will help to stabilize the person until the belief pattern is removed. But go deep into the patterning. Sense if it’s held up in one of the four levels. Perhaps it’s an obligation, contract, oath or vow. Perhaps it’s stuck in one of the parent’s beliefs rather than the client’s own belief system. Perhaps it’s held in repressed trauma. Trace the beliefs back and clear them.
This is when you want to become resourceful if you are working on yourself. You can certainly dig on yourself in staying connected to Creator. I sure do. But I also have practitioners who work with me…some I trade with. It’s easy to get stuck in old patterns when deep emotions are involved. You can use the rosters from your classes to contact other classmates or use an experienced ThetaHealing practitioner. You owe it to yourself to be the best you can be…because as you do, you will find that you are also supporting the changes that are happening on the earth at this time as well as past and future generations in your family. Our belief changes count for more than just ourselves. I call this being an inner activist...changing things from the inside out.
When enough beliefs are changed, DNA 3 starts to happen. This course will be taught for the first time this month. Only those who have completed the Intuitive Anatomy Teachers course or the Masters in ThetaHealing courses are invited. The Theta courses are set up knowing that people will do the deeper digging and clear enough beliefs as we progress so that the new level of information won’t feel overwhelming or too ‘quantum’. It will just make complete sense, and the exercises will be do-able (with practice). DNA 3 will be taught in September of 2009 as well with the eventuality of a DNA 3 Teachers’ course. DNA 3 involves not only changing our future but shifting things (inanimate objects), playing with the mitochondria (where the ATP, the spirit and energy for life exists in the body) and doing the healing in a new way. For those who’ve taken the Advanced workshop, Manifestation & Abundance and Intuitive Anatomy in the past year, use the roadmap exercise of sharing atoms with All-That-IS as a way to start practicing DNA3. It’s on the new Manifestation CD’s that are for sale or in the Advanced workbook. Also, meditate at the 7th Plane 10 minutes each day. This will help you understand the possibilities inherit in DNA 3.
So to conclude with some of the other predictions from Vianna for 2009:
*The true spiritual “revolution” starts in 2009 where many more people become aware of life beyond religion and move into spirituality. For the next 7 years, people will actually stand up for their faith and the Creator, and almost unite. Spirituality will be an acceptable practice.
*More hospitals will allow spiritual healers to come in more than ever before.
* Experiments in recreating a Universe will happen. (I actually found an article about this that was posted on my website awhile ago.) http://www.casavaria.com/sentido/science/2006/06-0802-new-universe.htm
*New cars that run on hydrogen will be upgraded this year. (From old newsletter)
*The Secretary of State is going to make peace in the Middle East.
*Medical care will change, becoming better.
*Our dollar will become more evenly balanced and our economy will change in empowering ways for the next year.
*There will be lots of rain to wash away the old energy.
*This will be the first time that social issues will really be solved.
*SSI will probably be raised
*Scientists are going to discover a way this year to help the plankton survive (helps us maintain our oxygen levels) that has been dying from the waters heating up. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0EIN/is_/ai_n27397565
A hopi elder speaks
“You have been telling the people that this is the 11th hour. Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the HOUR. And there are things to be considered.
Where are you living?
What are your relationships?
Are you in the right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden
It is time to speak your Truth
Create your community
Be good to each other
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.”
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said,
“T h i s c o u l d b e a g o o d t i m e!”
I want to thank everyone who blessed my house with their presence at my annual Solstice celebration. I apologize, again, to those who I turned away, but my house was completely full to capacity. Perhaps next Winter Solstice, I’ll need to create a bigger space so we can all join in.

EEG Studies show the Difference between Rich and Poor kids
In a study recently accepted for publication by the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, scientists at UC Berkeley's Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute and the School of Public Health report that normal 9- and 10-year-olds differing only in socioeconomic status have detectable differences in the response of their prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain that is critical for problem solving and creativity. "Kids from lower socioeconomic levels show brain physiology patterns similar to someone who actually had damage in the frontal lobe as an adult," said Robert Knight, director of the institute and a UC Berkeley professor of psychology. "We found that kids are more likely to have a low response if they have low socioeconomic status, though not everyone who is poor has low frontal lobe response. http://www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2008/12/02_cortex.shtml
This is the Brain on an Adolescence
Neuroscience research has shown that while teenagers' feet may be done growing by the end of high school, their brains are not. The prefrontal cortex of a 15-year-old is very different from that of a 30-year-old, both physically and in how it's used. For many teens, the output of their underdeveloped decision processing centers may be as mild as choosing a bag of cheese puffs for lunch or a new purple hairdo. But some youngsters take bigger risks – such as stealing a car or trying drugs. More 17-year-olds commit crimes than any other age group, according to recent studies by psychiatrists.
Standing in Someone Else’s Shoes, Almost for Real
Neuroscientists have shown that they can [create] a “body swapping” illusion that could have a profound effect on a range of therapeutic techniques. At the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience last month, Swedish researchers presented evidence that the brain, when tricked by optical and sensory illusions, can quickly adopt any other human form, no matter how different, from its own. “You can see the possibilities, putting a male in a female body, young in old, white in black and vice versa,”…. In a series of studies, using mannequins and stroking both bodies’ bellies simultaneously, the Karolinska researchers have found that men and women say they not only feel they have taken on the new body, but also unconsciously cringe when it is poked or threatened. In previous work, neuroscientists have induced various kinds of out-of-body experiences using similar techniques. The brain is so easily tricked, they say, precisely because it has spent a lifetime in its own body. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/02/health/02mind.html
The Language of Autism
Are people with autism trapped in their own world? Or are the rest of us just trapped in ours? After seeing 27-year-old Amanda Baggs ... you may rethink your views of the so-called "normal" world. She lives in Burlington, Vt., is autistic and doesn’t speak. But she has become an Internet sensation as a result of an unusual video she created called "In My Language." For the first three minutes of the video, she rocks, flaps her hands, waves a piece of paper, buries her face in a book and runs her fingers repeatedly across a computer keyboard, all while humming a haunting two-note tune. Then, the words "A Translation" appear on the screen. Although Ms. Baggs doesn’t speak, she types 120 words a minute. Using a synthesized voice generated by a software application, Ms. Baggs types out what is going on inside her head. "My language is not about designing words or even visual symbols for people to interpret. It is about being in a constant conversation with every aspect of my environment, reacting physically to all parts of my surroundings. Far from being purposeless, the way that I move is an ongoing response to what is around me."
Amazing artist who is autistic
Daniel Tammet - Boy with an injury of the brain that led to amazing abilities
A Stroke of Creativity: from a stroke by aneurism. Tommy McCue, from Liverpool, England, had a stroke caused by a double aneurism. After coming home from the hospital, his obsessions started. He started talking in rhyme followed by strange figure art work. He use to get in trouble with the law in his earlier years never being artistic, says his wife. http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=5763985
The Brain is a hologram of reality: Working independently in the field of brain research, Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram has also become persuaded of the holographic nature of reality… He believes memories are encoded not in neurons, or small groupings of neurons, but in patterns of nerve impulses that crisscross the entire brain in the same way that patterns of laser light interference crisscross the entire area of a piece of film containing a holographic image. In other words, Pribram believes the brain is itself a hologram. Pribram's theory also explains how the human brain can store so many memories in so little space. It has been estimated that the human brain has the capacity to memorize something on the order of 10 billion bits of information during the average human lifetime (or roughly the same amount of information contained in five sets of the Encyclopaedia Britannica). http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~sai/hologram.html
The Universe as a Hologram (Michael Talbot): In 1982 a remarkable event took place. Physicist, Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn't matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing….University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity, the Universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram. To understand why Bohm makes this startling assertion, one must first understand a little about holograms. http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~sai/hologram.html
ANIMALS AND HUMANS

Woman Risks Her Life for the Wolf Man She Loves
Shaun Ellis is willing to risk his life and leave behind the last remnants of a human existence to survive in the world of the wolf. It is a skill he has honed in the last few decades and has done what many scientists thought impossible--becoming an accepted member of a captive wolf pack. "This is the way that you need to study these animals. Get close to their world. And then they will share their secrets," he said. His goal is to find ways for wolves to peacefully co-exist with ranchers whose cattle are susceptible to attack. At a nearby pub one night, he met a woman who discovered she was fascinated both by the wolves and the man living among them. Jeffs became Ellis' assistant. And later on, something more.
Study Indicates that Happiness can Spread like a Contagion
The study of more than 4,700 people who were followed over 20 years found that people who are happy or become happy boost the chances that someone they know will be happy. The power of happiness, moreover, can span another degree of separation, elevating the mood of that person's husband, wife, brother, sister, friend or next-door neighbor. "You would think that your emotional state would depend on your own choices and actions and experience," said Nicholas A. Christakis, a medical sociologist at Harvard University who helped conduct the study published online today by BMJ, a British medical journal. "But it also depends on the choices and actions and experiences of other people, including people to whom you are not directly connected. Happiness is contagious.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/12/04/AR2008120403537.html?hpid=topnews

Best Free Video Showing Media Manipulation: The Power of Nightmares is a revealing BBC documentary that digs deep into the roots of the war on terror, only to find that much of the widespread fear in the post 9/11 world has been fabricated by those in power for their own interests and spread through the media. The intrepid BBC team presents highly informative interviews with top officials and experts in combating terrorism who raise serious questions about who is behind all of the media fear-mongering. This eye-opening documentary shows that, especially after 9/11, fear has been used in the media to manipulate the public into giving up civil liberties and turning over ever more power to elite groups with their own hidden agendas. The Power of Nightmares clearly demonstrates that the nightmare vision of a powerful, united terrorist organization waiting to strike our societies is largely an illusion. For all citizens who care about the future of our world, this is a must-watch video. http://www.WantToKnow.info/powerofnightmares

SECOND PLANE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
A unique fungus that makes diesel compounds directly from cellulose has been discovered living in trees in the Patagonian rainforest. The discovery may offer an alternative to fossil fuels, said Strobel, MSU professor of plant sciences and plant pathology, who travels the world looking for exotic plants that may contain beneficial microbes. The find is even bigger, he said, than his 1993 discovery of fungus that contained the anticancer drug taxol. "This is the only organism that has ever been shown to produce such an important combination of fuel substances," said Strobel. "The fungus can even make these diesel compounds from cellulose, which would make it a better source of biofuel than anything we use at the moment."
