James Ray, Sedona Retreat and Soul Contracts

If we were to look at the events we call tragic in a different light, we might find that what we consider “wrong” and what we perceive as being tragic, is not as we think. Through many of my writings and teachings, there is an underlying theme regarding soul contracts and how these help you to understand the circumstances within your life as well as the relationships. This includes individual soul contracts, which is with yourself, and there are combined soul contracts, which is between you and other souls. These soul contracts are made to assist you along your life journey, to help you to accomplish what your soul has intended but also to help other souls to accomplish what they intended. These intentions are for many reasons, and sometimes, on a conscious, human level, we cannot fully understand the reasons, even when our soul may be aware. Right now, many of us are choosing to be part of instances of releasing what is no longer serving us and our desire to vibrate in a higher, love consciousness as a whole. Have you ever heard that before there is the calm, there must be chaos? The reason this is, is because what we perceive as chaotic, is something that we feel we no longer want to accept, as individuals and as a whole, but we can’t recognize it as something we don’t like, until it comes up and causes us to be aware. How would we be able to evolve and elevate our consciousness if we didn’t release that which no longer vibrates on the same level? AND how can we release these things if there were not people/souls who were part of an event to bring them to our awareness so that we can then take action? This is where soul contracts come in…because these contracts are created on a deeper level that, if we are looking on the surface, we might miss. (You may stop here and listen to my radio show regarding soul contracts, and then go back to reading the rest of this article) Click here to listen. One of our human pitfalls is the ego. The ego can come through in many situations, bringing forth many unpleasant emotions, which can then create unpleasant actions or even non-actions. I want to bring awareness and light energy to the event which occurred in Sedona, AZ during James Ray’s Spiritual Warrior retreat. The ego is a judge, sitting at the head of the world, looking on everything that occurs, and holding onto opinions that are not positive. If you have done research, and/or was at this event,...

Being Happy Requires Self Awareness, Releasing Assumptions, and not Taking Things Personally

I have many people ask me what is the problem within their relationship with their partner. First, I have to say that there is never a “problem” but rather things to work on or let go of. Don Miguel Ruiz says to never take things personally, never make assumptions, and only be responsible for your half of a relationship. I am going to explain these in some detail here for you. Nothing that anyone you are choosing to have a relationship with ever does anything deliberately against you. That person is only acting and reacting because of her own life experiences as well as the ideas that she has agreed to believe throughout her experiences. SO, what happens then when someone starts snapping at us because they are feeling not so pleasant with the emotions that may creep up on them in the moment? Has this happened to you? How did you feel? What happens often in this scenario is that the other person starts taking the way that their lover is acting as personal and all these unpleasant thoughts are brought to their mind, which in turn creates unpleasant feelings, which can then create a defensive action. This defensive action most often than not creates another action on the part of the lover because now he feels a need to defend himself. This could go on and on, like ping pong, until one or both people stop it. How can you stop it? Very easily, however it requires you to be self aware, and other than communication being an important part of a healthy relationship, self awareness is the first step that aids within communication. What does being self aware mean? Well, let’s go back to the above scenario and expound on it. Let me give you an exact example that you can consider. Your partner is washing dishes but he doesn’t enjoy the task and it can seem a lot like work for him. He starts snapping, not at you, just snapping in general. He says, “I hate washing dishes, maybe I’ll just get some dishwashing liquid to start using the dishwasher.” In the middle of washing, he just turns the water off, still in a state of frustration with the whole thing. Now, you have options on how you can choose to react (because your reactions and actions are always a choice). You can start taking his words personally in that he is accusing you of not washing the dishes enough and say, “why are you snapping at me? I wash the dishes too,” OR you could choose to let his emotions be released in the...
