Together again

Tony and I had several discussions about relationships and karma in my latest book, “Could Anthony Newley Be My Muse? (Or His Story Never Ends) Forging a Creative Bond with the Dead.” You can still enter to win a free eBook from Goodreads at: https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/genre/Spirituality

In the present age we are not thrown together by chance with other people. That the path of life brings us into contact with certain people and not with others depends upon the working out of individual karma. For we have entered upon a period of human evolution which brings man’s preceding karmic developments to a culminating point. 

Think how much less karma had been accumulated in the earlier periods of earth evolution! With every incarnation fresh karma is made. At first, people had to meet under totally new conditions, with the possibility of forming fresh connections. But through repeated earth-lives we have gradually reached a point at which, as a general rule, we do not meet anyone with whom in former incarnations we have not shared this or that experience. 

And these experiences bring us into contact again with those who shared them. We meet other people as it…

Post-Publication Depression

Enter the free ebook giveway at Goodreads, good until January 26th !

Well, I’m reaching the end of the launch of my newest book, Could Anthony Newley Be My Muse (Or His Story Never Ends) Forging a Creative Bond with the Dead. I never did any marketing for my first book but I felt an obligation to Tony, if not myself, to do everything I am able to let people know about it.

This was right up against the holidays (though I didn’t plan it that way, it’s just how it worked out) and I thought that would be a great way to celebrate. Wrong! I spent the whole time struggling with the various outlets for making people aware of it. For me, that was not a good way for accessing feelings of joy.

In the interim, my colleague, Lynne Stull, who is far more steeped in anthroposophical studies than I pointed out a couple of mistakes concerning Rudolf Steiner. Though my work with Tony does not strictly follow the anthroposophical model for communicating with the dead, I feel it laid a strong foundation for me to stand upon. So, to set the record straight. I stated that Steiner wrote four books and 6000 lectures. Instead he wrote around 30, four of which are considered his foundational books.

She also was concerned about my stating that the form of helping the dead to heal karma I write of in the book gave the impression that my way was the first and only way. If others get that impression, I truly apologize for that was never my intention. Shamans have been doing that for centuries.

Lynne also shared the work of Kelly Connor, author of To have Caused a Death who also talks about healing across the threshold and gives workshops on the topic.

The comments in my book refer strictly to the method that came to me intuitively (or more likely inspired by my inner team of angelic guides) which I go into at length. I hope that will clear up any confusion.

Okay…I’m beat. I hope you will enter the free ebook giveway at Goodreads, good until January 26th, (limited to citizens of the US at this time though I hope Goodreads will change that in the future) or even purchase it at Amazon.

I’ll be going into different aspects of the book in future blog posts so I hope you will be able to ask me questions or make comments about what you’ve read.

For 2020, I wish for us all clarity of vision.

A stroke of destiny

Not all destiny is calamitous, nor is destiny an excuse to eschew compassion…but this understanding might help each of us to accept our destiny with more grace.

The great Rudolf Steiner Quotes Site

A stroke of destiny that befalls a person during life in the physical world may seem, from the point of view of that (physical) life, to contain something altogether opposed to the man’s own will. In the life between death and rebirth a force, resembling will, rules in the soul that gives to the person the tendency toward experiencing this very blow of fate. The soul sees, as it were, that an imperfection has clung to it from earlier earth-lives — an imperfection that had its origin in an ugly deed or an ugly thought. Between death and re-birth, there arises in the soul a will-like impulse to make good this imperfection. The soul, therefore, becomes imbued with the tendency to plunge into a misfortune in the coming earth-life, in order, through enduring it, to bring about equilibrium. After its birth in the physical body, the soul, when met by…

Kamaloka – The positive develops out of the negative (3 – End)

My new book will speak to what I am learning of ways we can assist the so-called dead in their intense longing to remove anything that impedes the soul’s growth during Kamaloka. Truly, my friends, we are all in this together.

The great Rudolf Steiner Quotes Site

I thus realise all the effects of my deeds and thereby absorb the force to wipe them away. And during this time in Kamaloka — which lasts a third of the earth-life — I absorb all the forces which may be expressed as an intense longing in the now disembodied soul, to remove everything which destroys perfection by retarding the soul’s evolution.

If you ponder over this you will see that man himself makes his own Karma, that is, that he has in himself the wish to become such that everything undesirable may be wiped out. Thus is Karma prepared, during this particular time. We incorporate into our souls the force which we must take up between death and rebirth, in order to bring about in the next incarnation that configuration of our life which we are able to regard as the right one. This is how Karma is created…

A sudden death

A fascinating way to consider sudden death especially in light of the events of the last few days.

The great Rudolf Steiner Quotes Site

Imagine that a person is struck down, dies by an accident. Let us suppose that a man is struck dead in his thirtieth year. To outer physical observation such a sudden death is a kind of accident: but from a spiritual science outlook it is simply absurd to regard such an affair as accidental. For in the moment when from outside, from any external cause, a man suddenly meets with death, an immense amount rapidly takes place. Think to yourselves: this same man who has been killed at the age of thirty would have become in the ordinary course of things perhaps seventy, eighty, ninety years old. If he had still lived from thirty to ninety years he would slowly have gone through, one after another, many life experiences. What he would thus have experienced during sixty years of life, he now goes through rapidly, it might even be in…
