SRT News - www.spiritualresponsetherapy.org.uk February 2012

Welcome to the February 2012 edition of SRT News

No-one knows for sure what this long awaited year will bring us.  We know we are in exciting times and that we are going through a great deal of change. Everywhere we look, the old ways are being questioned and new ways are heralding a year of growth and opportunity.  According to Chinese astrology we are in the most promising cycle for 50 years and 2012, the Year of the (Water) Dragon, is set to bring us good fortune and a huge change of energy. 


Change can sometimes be uncomfortable but universal law tells us that out of chaos comes new beginnings.   Some channelings have told us that we are experiencing a climactic bulge in space time, which is causing the Earth and potentially the human species to evolve to its next octave - a shift to a less dense dimension.


Visionary author and scientist, Gregg Braden, theorises that there is a natural photon belt that planet Earth appears to move through every 26,000 or 27,000 years.  It takes 2000 years to pass through and at 1000 years -  the time the Mayan ancients call The Shift of the Ages - we will reach the densest point at the center.  As a result of this shift, the Earth is changing magnetics and frequency and since we are made of the same elements as the Earth we too are changing.  We remain carbon based beings, but we are changing into crystalline state, almost as water changes from liquid to ice or gas.  None of this is new information but I felt it was worth bringing it back into our awareness to help us understand why everything seems to be in a state of flux.


As these finer energies have been causing us a few issues, it is important that we focus on getting through these changes in the best way possible.  There is now much more need to be fully responsible and accountable for our own actions, realising that our thoughts, words and deeds are powerful tools of creation.  We need to become entrained with the new heart-based frequencies by practising love and compassion towards ourselves and others.  Once you are able to come from a position of love, rather than fear, you will be able to embrace change more easily and comfortably.  Try the following meditation:


Set a few moments aside each day to get in touch with your heart energies.  Close your eyes and think of someone you love - a parent, your partner, your pet, a friend - just really feel that love in your heart.  Feel it fill your whole body, fill your mind, allow yourself to really experience the feeling of love.  Breathe love into your heart, breathe out any fear, any stress, any tension.  Just keep breathing love deep into your heart and allow it to expand into every cell of your body.  Feel love flowing through you.  When you are ready, allow your love to dissolve any disharmony that may exist between you and anyone else.  Allow your love to spread outwards from your heart, embracing your family, your friends, your colleagues, all Beings on Earth, Mother Earth, all Spiritual Beings, the Universe and then all the way into the infinity of SPIRIT.  Allow yourself to be love, to be one with SPIRIT.  Hold on to this feeling, and bring it back with you into your day and recreate it often.  The more your do so the more your brain will create new synapses, new neural pathways of love to help you heal your body, mind and spirit. 


Every blessing, Linda Turner

Book Review

Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior - Dan Millman
(click on title for link to Amazon.co.uk)


I have just re-read this book which was first published in 2004 and follows on from Way of the Peaceful Warrior written in 2000.  It is an enchanting book, and follows Dan on his journey to find his inner self.  Beautifully written, thought provoking and easy to read. I highly recommend it.  Even if you read it a long time ago, like I did, you will gain much from its wisdom.  This extract may whet your appetite!


"And I remembered what Mama Chia had told me: "You can speak of 'my body', because you are not the body.  You can also refer to 'my mind', 'my selves', 'my soul', because you are not these things.  You manifest as pure Awareness that shines through the human body, yet itself remains untouched and eternal.


"Awareness diffracts through the prism of the soul to become three forms of light - the three selves - each with a diferent kind of awareness uniquely suited to its purpose, function, and responsibilities.


"The Basic Self cares for and protects the physical body in cooperation with the other selves, providing support and balance.  A foundation and vehicle for the soul's journey in the world, it connects the Conscious and Higher Selves to the earth like the roots of a tree.


"The Conscious Self guides, informs, interprets for, and sometimes reassures the Basic Self, as a parent would a child, educating it to best serve this embodiment.  But this parent must cultivate loving ears to hear that child, respecting that child's individual spirit and growing awareness.  Parenthood is a sacred training ground.


"The Higher Self radiates love, reminding, inspiring, and rekindling the spark of light with the Conscious Self, drawing it up into  Spirit.  It accepts the process of the Conscious Self, and waits, eternally patient and understanding.


"Each of the three selves is here to assist the others, integrating, forming a whole, greater than the sum of its parts."

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Reinhold Niebuhr

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
Maya Angelou

Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.
King Whitney Jr.
