AIDS - A Healer's Point of ViewWritten by Martin Brofman, Ph.D.
Continued from page 1
It is obvious, for example, that we could not tell Russia that Chernobyl was their problem. We have seen that events in one country can have effects on other countries, if not worldwide. We have become obliged to think in more global terms, and in fact, we have begun to do so. AIDS, like any other out-of-balance condition, can be healed. What it takes is love. One young man in San Francisco who had developed AIDS was given a radical therapy, which reversed effects of disease and resulted in his recovery. He had to walk through streets carrying balloons, being obviously different, and when passers-by would look at him, he had to give them a card saying, "I love you." At first, he felt very conspicuous. The second day, it was easier. By third day, he really did feel love for these other Beings that were seeing him as different - and he also felt loved, even with his differences. He recovered. Louise Hay, an extraordinary American healer, has had much success with reversing AIDS by focusing on aspects of forgiveness and self-acceptance, and using therapies emphasizing these qualities. Her successes show effectiveness of this approach of heart. She has had more success with AIDS patients than any other individual I have heard of. In experience of this writer regarding healings of AIDS patients, consistent factor was imbalance of heart chakra, and poor quality of relationships in their lives. One young man who was able to open to receive love during a healing was later told by his doctor that he didn't have AIDS after all, but just a systemic fungus infection, Candida. Another who recovered was told by his doctor that original diagnosis must have been a mistake. People can recover from AIDS when they learn to recognize love, and trust it, and place themselves in relationships that are nurturing, rather than punishing. That is, they learn to stop punishing themselves, and so allow themselves to be nurtured. They learn to accept themselves, and even to accept others who do not accept them. With acceptance, with love, heart chakra can again function normally, restoring strength to thymus gland, and therefore to immune system. The individual can then decide that there is something to live for, after all, since love is again in their lives. The flow of energy is restored, resulting in a return to experience of wholeness that we know as health. We are Beings of energy. When we block or interrupt flow of this energy, result is illness or injury. Sometimes this happens as a call for love. We each have ability to restore flow of energy, and provide an abundance of love where there was a perception of lack. When we do this, a healing happens. It is imperative, now, that we keep our hearts open, and replace judgments with acceptance. It is vital that we learn to love even more, and to allow ourselves to be loved. We must relate in our relationships, and use communication to clear misunderstandings and disagreements. When we can keep ourselves in a loving space, we will have a positive effect on our environment, a healing effect. With our hearts open to love all around us, and fully accepting ourselves, we will not be creating conditions in which AIDS develops. The answer is acceptance. The answer is love.

Ten Steps for Creating Success JoyfullyWritten by Neva Howell
Continued from page 1
5. Release expectations. Understand that Spirit may have a way of bringing whole thing together, which your personality self has never even considered. Don't tie hands of your Higher Self, by insisting on a certain sequence of events. Trust that God will unfold perfect result. If you can take position of "interested observer" it will be easier to let God work in your life. Consider how it would be if you tried to fly an airplane from your seat in middle. How clear would your vision of entire sky be from that perspective. Better to trust pilot.
6. Be willing to take it one step at a time. Get used to not being able to see next step. It will be revealed when you have done work needed in present moment. Jumping ahead is one of biggest energy drains I can imagine. It's a little like trying to go 100 miles an hour with your foot on brake. All you'll do is make a stink and burn out your brake pads!
7. Practice good will gestures. Find someone to encourage, lift up, or support. In reality of feedback loop, you will receive what you give out, and support will be there when you need it. You are familiar with Random Acts of Kindness movement a while back and more recent Pay It Forward phenomenon. Both are rekindlings of a much older tradition: Do unto others what you you would have them do unto you! These ideas keep reemerging because they represent higher truth! It's an amazing truth that what you do comes back to you, so do something nice for no reason every day for next 30 days.
8. Use conscious speech! Watch how you speak out about what you want to create--choose your words and images carefully. Don't push and don't push your ideas on other people. Share only with those who will support, encourage, and gently challenge weak points, from a position of support. Your body hears every word you say about your health. Your mind hears every word you say about your abilities and skills. Further more, your cellular memory records everything you think about yourself, whether you speak it out or not. Instead of saying "I'm terrible at public speaking" try "In past, I've tended to be challenged by public speaking but I am learning to be comfortable sharing my truth and awareness with others." Speaking in this way literally programs your mind to put your challenges where they belong -- in past -- and to focus your thinking toward future in a positive way.
9. Do something nourishing for yourself every day. Make a point of it. It doesn't have to be a big thing. A long hot bath is one of my favorite gifts I give myself. Affirm "I am deserving of receiving this vision into reality", to open your channels for receiving more goodness and success. When you stop punishing yourself for work not done or results not achieved, you begin to release taskmaster that has kept you enslaved to linear time results and projection. Yes, those things are there but they are not law. They are a guideline and guidelines change. Be willing to enjoy wherever you are, even if it is not where you think you should be or projected you would be by a particular moment in time.
10. End day when day ends. Maybe most important tip of all - Let day go at end of day, without judgment or negative self-talk. Thank yourself for doing your best with time, release any unfinished business to God and ask for dreamtime teachings, healing and help as you drop away to sleep.
