Member: Bring4th_CarlaLisbeth Location: Anchorage, KY Gender: Female Interests: Serving the Creator and my other-selves, singing, reading for fun (romances, sci-fi and mysteries) collecting recipes, eating out (I love to do that!), hanging with St. Luke's Episcopal Church community of worship and singing in the choir, making the Law of One information more easily available, writing on a the second book of a three-book series on the principles of the Law of One, reading other channeling and spiritually oriented books, learning about bio-dynamic gardening and living, patting our kitties and keeping up with friends.
In June of 2005 I kept a daily journal on a speaking trip to Britain and decided to keep the daily entries going on my return. If you would like to keep up with L/L Research and my activities, this is the place to do that. Of course, sometimes these days (May 2012) it is Jim who writes the daily entry, so I should say, OUR activities! We wish you blessings, light and love! Carla L. Rueckert-McCarty and Jim McCarty.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Her right hip is still too painful to walk laps but she does walk from the bed to the wheelchair for off-loading in the living room three times a day. She is also doing her exercises in bed and is continuing to be clear-headed. The muscle spasms remain but we are hopeful they will retreat as well.
The weather turned warm today so I was able to paint the newly framed trim around our new garage doors today. I checked the front gutters and they are now free of ice so maybe tomorrow I can hang the icicle lights along the gutter.
Gary and Austin put in their last day this week in the office:
Last day their physical bodies will be in the office, that is. Volunteering continues outside of the office over the weekend.
A day of fewer bullet points. The love of a certain admin's life had her commencement ceremony this evening, walking across the University of Louisville's stage with a cap and gown, radiant and beautiful and succeeding despite the medical hardships that prolonged the journey!
Spent some time at the post office catching up with Hallie and gifting her something for Christmas. She's such a kind-hearted soul whom I seldom see now that Austin is shipping books.
Initiated a brilliant idea to sell L/L books through the world's largest online retailer (need I say it's jungled name). But, not selling to that company who would then sell it again, but rather selling it ourselves through the website as a third-party, much like you see many other options to buy new and used books from other sellers. It would be another great outlet for the books, as everyone and their brother or other closest sibling, shops from there, and it would allow L/L to retain more of the money made from each sale. Began research into this today.
Did the week's bookkeeping with planning for the coming Christmas week.
Processed donation letters and edited the announcement for the Beatriz workshop next March.
And received the first positive reply, with subsequent volleys of communication/negotiation, from he who we approached to fill the moderator position! His identity shall remain undisclosed until a more official presentation can be made, complete with the comical regalia we clothe these processes in.
Our evening was happily spent watching NCIS episodes that we had recorded plus a little Modern Family. We completed our viewing evening with the Colbert Report. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Mona, our wound care nurse, came early this morning and agreed that Carla’s wound needs some special attention. For the next week or so she has taken Carla off the wound VAC machine and we have gone back to two wet-to-dry dressing changes per day. We have also scheduled an appointment for Jan. 8th to go to the Wound Care Center and have Dr. Corby do an in-office debridement. Then we would go back on the wound VAC until a decision is made as to whether or not a muscle graft operation would be appropriate for Carla. We need to gather a lot of information about this procedure to be sure Carla can do it. Mona also agreed with me that the clindamycin was probably accumulating in Carla's body and was the cause of her disorientation and muscles twitching.
I took Dan D. Lion, our tail-less tom cat, to the vet to get his shot for asthma. It lasts about six weeks and then the coughing/wheezing attacks start again. He gets a shot of prednisone for it which is the same drug that I took for the same disease when I was a kid. I was lucky and outgrew it. I spent the rest of the afternoon blowing the leaves around the yard into position so I could mulch them for the last time. Now, let it snow!
Gary and Austin had a busy day in the L/L office, including having a very pleasant lunch with Carla and me:
During a portion of today's rotational spin of the Earth on its axis, we shipped book orders and processed donations and picked up mail from the distant PO Box.
Drafted a write-up for the March 21 – 23 event L/L is hosting for Beatriz Gonzalez, a healing practitioner who draws upon the Law of One material.
Rescheduled next week's "In the Now" program to happen on Monday, December 23rd, as Austin and I will be headed to meet with our respective bio-fams for the Christmas holiday.
Approached a good friend and existing L/L volunteer to see if he would be interested in filling the moderator vacancy left by Aaron Koiner's departure.
Sent Edgard the session Jim selected for the Winter Light/Lines along with the "Notes to Our Readers" section that Jim and Carla put together. When Edgard produces the PDF, we'll get it published to the archive website, emailed to those subscribed to the email list, and snail-mailed to those without access to the internet.
Received a preliminary art idea from Michele M. involving the Quixote logo for the cover of the "Scholar's Edition".
Ordered new book inventory, enjoyed a great lunch with Carla and Jim, and responded to various seeker email.
We watched some Modern Family on television as well as an episode or two of NCIS. I answered some emails that had been waiting in my inbox for a while, and then I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight. We finished our evening with The Colbert Report.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. I decided to take her off the clindamycin HCL that she has been taking for the last 13 days for her back wound infections and see if that made a difference in the spasming of her arms and legs and the disorientation that she had the night before. I am happy to say that the disorientation disappeared as the day went on, but the spasms in the arms and legs continue. We will need to add that to our list of topics to discuss with our wound care nurse when she comes tomorrow. There is also the matter of getting Carla’s wound debrided at the Wound Care Center. And if it is decided that the clindamycin HCL is the culprit then with what do we replace it? We still need to get rid of the infections.
I did a little more Christmas shopping and then wrapping in the late morning and in the afternoon I finished polishing the silver. It’s good to have that latter job done.
Gary and Austin reported a busy day in the L/L office:
Got a late start to the day: Trish had an outpatient procedure this morning that went well.
Shipped book orders of the day, restocked book inventory, and updated the page for Wynn's wellness pendant in the Friends Of section of our online store. Wynn built in a discount code for anyone interested in purchasing it through L/L.
Collected and communicated all the plans that were finalized during our visit to see Fox regarding the April Archetypes Gathering to the Archetypes group. Asked Seph if he could finalize the curriculum within the next few weeks in order to be able to announce the workshop by January 15 and begin taking registration. Our max capacity is 18, and with nine (us included) already reserved, openings will be limited.
Canceled this week's "In the Now" program due to Carla being in not top condition.
Put up a new banner on L/L's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/llresearch. (We think it's worth sharing here because it's a great image and created by a reader. Nick S. sent it to us in response to the t-shirt campaign. Thank you, Nick!)
Learned from Tobey that he's up to Session 10 in the process of incorporating the proofreads into the "Lightly Edited" version. Austin and I will take those ten sessions with us on our respective Christmas journeys.
Heard from Daniel that he is nearing finishing the Introduction in Portuguese of Book I! Quick he is.
Heard back from Joel Terry, the host who interviewed Jim last week, receiving audio of the interview. Sent out a request for help to the volunteer list and had a return within a couple minutes. Thank you, Todd!
Began a process to thank someone who made 2013 unlike any year that has come before.
We watched the new episodes of NCIS this evening along with a couple of episodes of Modern Family. We really enjoyed being with each other and I was really glad to see Carla “back”. Carla said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Susie came by this morning and changed Carla’s dressing. The wound continues to look like it needs debriding. That black spot from last Saturday now looks like dead tissue, so we will investigate getting Carla to the Wound Care Center so Dr. Corby can do some debriding in the office and avoid surgery in the hospital. The arthritic flare-up in her right hip continues and even the left hip is sore.
I polished about half the silver this afternoon and wrapped some presents as well. I also did a little Christmas shopping this morning and one more day should see both the rest of the silver polished and the Christmas shopping done.
Gary and Austin had a very interesting day for L/L Research:
We made a 70+ mile drive to see the dwelling place of the illustrious Fox H. We shared lunch with her, her husband Steve, and our friend Eddie, exploring the place for the April 2014 Archetypes Gathering. They live on a beautiful 70 acre piece of property with a wooden home that Fox and her husband built by hand. The property includes a garden and a large pond in a hilly back yard in rural Kentucky. We picked up a couple buckets of clay for Jim, and determined that we will be able to host a maximum head count of eighteen, and settled other detail regarding meals, transportation, timing, and exactly how large to make the bonfires of Friday and Saturday night. (Options ranged between really large, and really really large.)
Good conversation Austin and I shared on the way there and back. We bounce off one another really well in matters of philosophy, metaphysics, terrestrial politics, worldview, amazing almost superhuman strength, personal approach to catalyst, the politics (in a non-pejorative way) of the Confederation, and the equal burning to be able to talk with Ra again. So many questions we have. (Ra, I hope you're reading the blog.)
Upon returning, put book orders together - since the fundraiser we have noticed a marked and interesting increase in international readers purchasing complete sets of the Law of One books. About an hour of the life's journey of seeking in the third-density illusion was spent at the post office thanks to the holiday rush and a perennially understaffed and overworked post office cadre.
Discussed details with Michele M. and Tobey for potential cover artwork for the upcoming "Scholar's Edition". Carla had submitted a request with Michele thanks to the truly excellent cover art Michele produced for the covers of A Wanderer's Handbook, A Book of Days, and the awesome spiraling chakra design of Living the Law of One 101.
Collected questions for tomorrow's "In the Now" radio program, and contacted the man who interviewed Jim last week to see if we could obtain an audio file of the interview for transcription and publication to the archive website. The interview focused on questions of the history of L/L Research and the Ra contact.
And in response to an individual who inquired into the possibility of ordering all 106 mp3's of the Ra contact, a genius idea emerged. Background: Each Ra mp3 download is $3.00. Not bad if you're picking up one or a handful, but that gets pricey if you're interested in many sessions. Our current online store isn't properly sophisticated to allow for bundled ordering of mp3's. (i.e.: Order "x" number at a reduced cost.) We've been waiting for a new online store to implement a bundling feature, until today's question prompted a new possibility: We can buy flash drives (even following through with the idea that Eccles' introduced of manufacturing custom-made flash drives, say, with the Quixote logo) and place bundles of mp3's onto the flash drive with tiered discounts according to the number ordered. The entire 106 mp3 library weighs in at 6.39 gb's, easy to accommodate on a flash drive, or in a fourth-density thought form. (The latter not available for sale.)
Patted selves on respective backs for this idea.
In the late afternoon when Carla was doing her off-loading procedure in the living room she noted that her arms and legs had begun to twitch and it was somewhat unnerving. Later in the evening she became somewhat disoriented and I am wondering if this might be another bad reaction to a drug, perhaps the antibiotic that she is taking for the rare corynebacterium infection in her wound, or even has been caused by the infection itself. We listened to a little Chris Isaak and Stevie Nix singing Christmas songs tonight. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She was only able to walk a half lap today because of the bad hip. Lidoderm patches seem to help it, so we will continue with them. She did her exercises in bed and her off-loading in the living room after I wheeled her in there.
After lunch both Carla and I were on the two-hour planetary healing show because Wynn F. was back east with his family and needed Carla to take a bigger role in the show. We spent the first hour talking about Jesus the Christ since this is the season that we celebrate for his birth. The show went well and when it was done we got Carla’s hair washed and her new bedding on her bed.
I went full steam with getting all the China, crystal, and pottery pieces down from our shelves in the kitchen, office, and living room. Many of these pieces have been in Carla’s family for generations and I always take the Christmas season to get them all clean. Tomorrow I will polish the silver pieces.
Our evening was mixed with NCIS and then a little music from Willie Nelson and Jessica Simpson, of all people. Then we found some local musicians on the KET network and enjoyed their music as well. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Susie came by this morning and changed Carla’s wound VAC dressing. She was surprised and a little dismayed to discover a black spot about an inch square on the lower right outside of Carla’s wound. It almost looked like an injury she said. And the rest of the wound has some slough that needs to be removed, so Susie will contact Mona, our wound care nurse, who will check with the plastic surgeon to OK a visit to the Wound Care Center and Dr. Corby who can do a good deal of the debriding in his office without the necessity of surgery. The good news is that the swelling in Carla’s feet is almost gone.
This was a cold and rainy day, a good one to stay inside and work at little puttery things. So I started taking the China, silver, and crystal down from our shelves in the kitchen and washing them in the dish washer. The silver, of course, will need some polishing. I have recently been wearing a pendant that Wynn F. is selling in our online store and noticed that it gave me extra energy to get work like this done—for which I am most grateful. It would make a nice Christmas present.
Our evening television viewing was full of NCIS and Modern Family again. We love mystery and humor, so these two shows work nicely for us. We completed our day by watching Austin City Limits where the first half hour gave us Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros, and they were a jaunty, off beat, quirky rock-a-billy group that was surprising and pleasing. They were followed by Tune Yards who blew us away with their amazing collection of sounds fashioned together into a kind of musical format that defies description. Actually, they reminded me of Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention. I am sure that Frank must have sat up in his grave to get a better listen when they played their first song. Carla said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She still has the urpy stomach which means that she eats less than usual and she is beginning to get a little weaker in her legs due to less food. We will have to work on getting her stomach in good shape so that we can reverse the process. She was able to do her exercises in bed and do her off-loading with a ride to the living room where her electric chair is located. She also did some work on the emotions data base that she will be using for The Law of One 102.
I was able to get some Christmas lights up on our front porch and on the large bush just off the porch. I had to replace some of our older lights that have about half the lights out on a string. I wasn’t able to get the white ice sickle lights on the front roof line because the gutter there is full of ice and there is no way to hook the lights on. We may have enough of a warm-up in the next few days to melt that ice and get our lights up there too.
We had a block of NCIS to watch for the evening as well as an episode or two of Modern Family. We finished our day with the WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour where we got to hear JJ Grey and Mofro. They were able to lay down the smoothest beat and glide their way through a very easy listening set of songs. They put us to sleep before we even got to the second act. Carla said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. The right hip is still an issue and we wheeled Carla into her off-loading exercise in the living room on three occasions. Her tummy is still urpy (that’s a technical medical term) so she is eating less than usual. She was able to do her exercises in bed and she continues to research the data base for material on emotions which will become the second Law of One 102 book.
I went off to the dermatologist this morning to have a couple of lesions on my face looked at. They turned out to be nothing that couldn’t be frozen off in a few seconds. I saw where the actor, Hugh Jackman, was nagged by his wife to have similar lesions on his face seen by his doctor and they were skin cancers that could be treated easily since he had come in early, so I used his experience as my motivation.
I finished getting our Christmas tree up and also put up decorations around the rest of the house as well. If it’s warm enough tomorrow I may try to get some exterior lights up on the front of the house too.
Gary and Austin were their usual busy selves in the L/L office:
NOTE TO JIM: Hey Jim, would you be interested in mentioning something about L/L's fundraiser in one of your own Camelot Journal entries? Would be helpful, I think, if you also lent your voice to our annual need.
In answer to Gary’s note, yes, it is that time of year where we ask folks for help with our financial support. We have made all of our material available globally for free as that was one of Don Elkins’ primary goals for L/L Research and it was one which was easy for us to adopt as our own too. It is a pleasure to be able to do that, but it does require some support from folks who appreciate such material. We do thank everyone who supports us in any way whatsoever and we are especially grateful to those of you who help us pay our bills.
Spent an extra long session keeping the books in order for the financial houses, knocking out two bank reconciliations! <The crowd goes wild.> (In this author's head.)
Connected Edgard with two translators to establish formatting and sending procedures. One of those translators, Rhea, has turned in the first session of Book II in Romanian! And Daniel, a Portuguese-speaking Brazilian, will soon begin with Book I.
Forgot to mention that our Tuesday "In the Now" program went well. We discussed: incarnational learning towards purifying love, the ethics of eating meat in light of the Law of One, and the possibility (is there one?) of experiencing higher densities and states of consciousness while in third density. If interested, it can be streamed or downloaded or put into your iTunes from these page: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/llresearch/2013/12/10/20131210-in-the-now--qa-with-carla-and-crew
Shipped book orders and processed donations. Many thanks to all, and a big thanks to our friend Tom C. who addressed his letter "To the crew of the Starship L/L Research". Tom, we're painting that on the side of the house.
Worked on getting A Book of Days into Kindle format as well.
Responded to various sorts of email, including assisting with book orders, including a June sending of Book I to South Africa that just found its way back to the PO Box. It had gone unclaimed for some reason unknown.
For our evening Carla and I chose to just hang out together and watch a little television, read some, pat kitty cats, and simply enjoy each other’s company. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Mona, our wound care nurse, came by this morning and trimmed away a little slough from Carla’s wound to promote the healing where the slough was covering. The infections remain but the wound in general looks good. She was very happy with how the bedsore on Carla’s behind is healing and she also put another lidoderm patch on Carla’s flared up right hip.
When I took the cats to the vet this afternoon to get their yearly shots I asked the vet if he had ever heard of the corneybacterium since it apparently comes from farm animals. He had heard of it and when he checked his Veterinarian Information Network he found rare instances of it in dogs but none of it in cats, so our cats are not the source. He said it was considered a contaminant and not a pathogen.
I bought a Christmas tree today and got it trimmed and up in its stand, full of water. Tomorrow I decorate it and various places around our house with our favorite old decorations. It is, indeed, beginning to look a little like Christmas all around our house.
Gary and Austin were again busy in the L/L office:
Shipping of book orders and processing donations. Each time we open an envelope with a letter and/or donation, or receive an order from the online store, we say a "thank you", usually internally, but sometimes in song. Though there is a good chance we'll fall short of our fundraising goal this year, it's god darned (<-- sorry for the language) inspiring that L/L submits a request to the readership asking for help, and individuals, in turn, chip in.
Upon investigated a content management system recommended and used by BBS Radio, thinking I had found the keys to eternal website awesomeness for our new website, Steve E., our radmaster, (in that, as webmaster, he is also master of rad.), carefully explained how that CMS is not to be disregarded, but is not the fit we're looking for.
Speaking of BBS Radio, I think I had hinted at it before but not officially declared that L/L Research no longer has a weekly Q'uo broadcast. Out of the seeming blue it was determined on their end that because L/L is not producing any "new" channeling, they could no longer broadcast Q'uo sessions. Since Carla's surgery and the suspension of channeling, we've been sending archived channeling sessions to broadcast. In response, I countered the policy decision by lobbing the full force of my unassailable, impeccable depth of reasoning like a canon shot against thick cardboard. I drew attention to the fact that L/L's channeling isn't particularly time-relevant; it deals for the most part in principles that transcend the calendar and current events (a channeling from 1989 is not dissimilar from a channeling in 2002). But to no avail. No "new" channeling equals no broadcast. (I suspect that the listenership is too small for L/L's channeling to merit a continued existence on the website.)
Though, in truth, there is no complaint on this end. The owner of BBS Radio, Don Newsom, was kind enough to issue the invite to broadcast on their site years ago due to a love of Carla's work and, I believe, personal affection. And he and his staff have been absolutely wonderful to work with over the years. Further, with the launch of our new website in the next couple months (I prophesize this time frame), we hope to be able to offer much more streaming and downloading opportunities of the great and vast library that Carla, Jim, and other L/L friends have produced over the course of thirty years. Including, eventually, the new channeling that a next generation hopes, one infinite Creator willing, to undertake.
Continued tweaking A Wanderer's Handbook to be converted into a Kindle edition and made available for purchase from Amazon. There is substantial modification of formatting required to get ones manuscript to have a fairly consistent look across the different kindle platforms, each one rendering its own version.
Rescheduled with Fox to visit her place next week to scope it out for the planned April Archetypes Gathering as she wasn't feeling well. Get better friend!
Coordinated with Sarah D. with questions about the prison ministry. She in turn ran into a snag from a prisoner who is not getting her mail despite having sent twice! He wrote in his letter that he believes mail may being withheld form him. Contacted Lorena (previous prison ministry head) to see if she had encountered this situation before.
Caught up with Terry Hsu. We shared conversation about a group in his country who, according to this group, can, in the same session, pretty much channeling anything, from Ra, to Q'uo, to deceased humans, to rocks, to hobbits. Quite talented, they are.
Received one voluntarily transcribed homecoming transcript from a volunteer (thank you, Jason!), heard from and dialogued with two volunteers who were kind enough to notify of their intentions to complete but delay in doing so, and took an accounting of the transcripts still out there. Perhaps holiday season is slowing up the volunteer effort.
A good lunch with Carla and Jim, though Carla was doing work in consciousness on an inner level for half of it. Learned from Jim of a segment that CNN did on near death experiences that I'm looking forward to watching: http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/29/us/to-heaven-and-back/
And, as Trish was unfortunately back in the hospital for a few days just a couple months after her most recent surgery, did what would have been her weekly cooking shift. Made a chicken parmesan that could cause those overly sensitive to good taste to lose their balance, which is why I strongly advised Jim not to eat while walking.
Our evening was full of NCIS episodes and then at 9 pm I was interviewed by a friend of Wynn F.’s for BBS radio. He wanted to know a lot of the background information of what was happening with us at the time of the Ra contact and how we three were able to blend our energies together to bring in those of Ra. It was a fun conversation and gave me a chance to talk about things that I hadn’t thought of for quite a while. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. The right hip is still a problem today and we decided to take another day off laps and exercises. We hope to get back to them tomorrow in a beginning way.
We had our blog talk radio show this morning a little early because Carla had an appointment with her pain management doctor early this afternoon. The show went pretty well with its new format. We have four people participating now instead of two so there is more variety of opinion.
After the radio show I took Carla to her appointment and Dr. Reasor’s assistant, Carol, was very sympathetic to Carla’s condition having so many setbacks and she was kind enough to refill all of Carla’s pain meds.
Gary and Austin put in a full day in the L/L office:
For today's Blogworthy, a report by Austin of his weekend in Texas.
Art of Healing Circle Retreat
I departed Louisville Thursday morning and, despite plane delays, missed layover flights, and my checked baggage being lost somewhere in the confusion (it was later recovered and delivered), I made it to San Antonio late yet unharmed. The universe displayed its ultimate reciprocal nature when I was received at the airport by Beatriz and Rita, whom I greeted at the airport in Louisville as they arrived for Homecoming 2013 just a few months ago.
At Beatriz's home I got a chance to meet the small crew behind her healing operation, amazing people with great and pure hearts. I also met Beatriz's son, an incredibly bright young guy in both intelligence and inner luminosity. I related with the current stage of his personal journey, feeling I had been down a similar road in my own past requiring a leap of faith in trusting that the universe will allow the proper path to unfold at the moment it is appropriate.
The actual retreat started Friday evening, at which point I got the chance to meet more amazing folks, all there to learn and experience the transformation of the healing technique Beatriz offers. There were some seekers of the Law of One present and it was great chatting with them about their understanding and experiences.
This first portion of the retreat was a lecture highlighting some science behind how our emotions can affect the functioning of our body, offering an in-depth look at the process of emotional catalyst becoming physical. It was a fascination discussion with lots of information about the systems of our body. I came away with a greater understanding of the physical aspects of the catalyst we experience as humans.
We started early the next morning with the next portion of the retreat. This began with a discussion of some suggested reading, including Anita Moorjani's "Dying to be Me", an autobiographical tale of a woman who experienced intense physical catalyst for years before having an extraordinary near-death experience, in which she experienced a new awareness of her own worth and came back to life with a fuller understanding of the metaphysical roots of her physical ailments. Through this realization and understanding she healed herself completely.
Beatriz then took the group through a two-part lecture where we examined the different aspects of unity consciousness and separation consciousness, and the ultimate illusion of separation itself. She highlighted the aspects of separation consciousness which connect to the emotions which were discussed the previous evening, subsequently resulting in physical ailments.
After lunch, we proceeded on to Beatriz's "Miracle of Self Healing"
exercise,the pinnacle which the weekend was building towards. Experienced together as a group, we bared our hearts and souls to approach the healing in open honesty. Each person opened up to the ground and we all helped each other focus our intentions of healing these wounds, some old and some new, some deep and some near the surface.
The exercise itself is informed greatly by Beatriz's study of the Law of One. Being a healer for 30 years, she has always had a gift and desire to serve through healing. At one point her focus for healing was primarily of the physical, but as time went on, she began to suspect that there was more behind physical ailments than the physical processes themselves. After discovering Anita Moorjani's work, she started seeking a way to offer others the type of experience and understanding offered to Anita through her near-death experience, but without the actual experience of dying.
It was in this seeking she found the Law of One, which she then integrated into her self-healing exercise.She found a deeper understanding of emotional catalyst effecting bodily catalyst and the process of self-discovery which offers total healing.
The transformative energies present in the room as the group was led through the exercise by Beatriz were palpable. After the exercise was complete, everyone was thoroughly emotionally spent. With the retreat activities done for the day, everyone sought out an opportunity for quiet contemplation. The effects of the exercise could be clearly seen in the faces of all present.
After a restful night of sleep, we returned Sunday morning to reflect on the experience of the day prior. Each person spoke about what they discovered, felt, and transformed during the exercise and after. Much progress was made by many people and a new light shone on the heart of self for everyone involved. The retreat was wrapped up with recommendations of flower essences by Beatriz and a discussion of their individual effects.
The remainder of Sunday evening gave me another chance to socialize with the amazing people gathered at Beatriz's home. We retired early after an evening of great conversation, setting our alarms for a time which no human being should have to consider rising from bed in order to catch our flights early the next morning.
I left the retreat truly inspired by what was possible with the Law of One material. In its own, it can offer individuals and groups a broader understanding of many philosophical, metaphysical, scientific, and spiritual principles. There's no shortage of food for contemplation within the words offered by Ra.
But what is truly amazing is when this information is applied in service to others, as Beatriz has done. She recognized instantly the potential behind the information and wasted no time manifesting that potential into our reality. The result is an experience which truly facilitates the knowledge of self as Creator and the apparent miracles which may result from this knowledge, which in this case is truly a Miracle of Self Healing.
We're excited to host Beatriz the weekend of March 21-23, 2014, for a healing retreat through L/L Research. Thank you Beatriz and everyone in Texas for such an amazing experience.
Carla and I enjoyed an evening of new NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles episodes. Carla said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.
