Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise can mean different things as my friend and colleague, Jane Teresa Anderson, points out in her recently published book, Bird of Paradise: Taming the Unconscious to bring Your Dreams to Fruition. See photo above.

Jane is a dream analyst and dream alchemist. As a dream analyst, she uses her skills to help her clients understand their unconscious desires and concerns. As a dream alchemist, she gives her clients a process to make desired changes by reprogramming their dream in unusual and creative ways.

I first met Jane in 2009 at a talk she was giving on dreams. There was something about her that I found compelling. Maybe it was her silky blonde hair that would glide and shine as she moved her head. Perhaps it was her gentle English accent and softly spoken voice that still somehow carried to the far corners of the room. More likely it was all these things, as well as her stories which showed how dreams reflect our unacknowledged motivations.

After the talk, I spoke to her briefly when my friend Jen introduced us. Although we never exchanged details, I had a feeling we would see each other sometime in the future.

In early 2010, we met again, this time at a book launch. Both our husbands were present, and they hit it off. Michael and Ian are both writers and, soon after meeting, they became friends as did Jane and I.

In Jane’s new book, which I thoroughly enjoyed, she notes a number of synchronicities occurring during her life. After reading it, I considered some of the synchronicities I have experienced. One that stood out involved Jane. At the time, it was so unexpected that I couldn’t dismiss it – like I often had with other potential synchronicities – as coincidence.

One particular day, a young girl of about 17 came to see me at my psychology practice. She had only one request, she wanted to know the meaning of her dream. Although dreams had been mentioned by other clients as side issues, in seventeen years of practice, no one had ever come to see me for the sole reason of interpreting their dream.

At one point in the dream, the young girl was immersed in water, and there were other complexities that struck me as cryptic. I had no idea what any of it meant. But something else was puzzling. That very evening, for the first time ever, Jane and Michael were coming to stay. Not knowing what else to do, I gathered as much information I could and told my client that a dream analyst was coming for dinner. She booked in for the following day.

Using contextual information which I had gleaned from the client, Jane easily unravelled the dream, told me what further questions to ask and how to make sense of it all. The client was thrilled.

Since then, I have had some of my dreams interpreted by Jane and have read some of her books. So now I know a little more about dream analysis than I did before—but still so little. While listening to Jane’s podcasts where she deciphers people’s dreams, I am amazed at her skill. Like the work I do, it is a calling. She heals people through working with them and their dreams.

When I was doing my life between lives training, Jane agreed to be one of my practice clients. In Bird of Paradise, she mentions doing this regression and only while reading the book, did I learn how much the experience meant to her. I also became aware of many other interesting and wonderful experiences she shares of her life.

I enjoyed her book so much I wanted to share it with you. She takes her readers on a lyrical journey through a floral garden of meaningful anecdotes, dreams and stories. I felt a sense of serenity in her writing which left me smiling by its end. Somehow the world felt safe and calm again. I am curious if others will find something similar and wouldn’t be surprised if they did.

Feeling Disturbed?

Feeling Disturbed?

Have you ever noticed that sometimes something you see, hear about or read disturbs you and stays in you mind? There is a reason for this and it is worth exploring its source in order to gain a deeper self-understanding and peace.

This blog is accessed via a link. It is one I have written as a guest blog for my colleague, Lisbeth Lysdale.

What Really Caused Covid-19?

What Really Caused Covid-19?

When the world was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, I recalled a life between lives regression case that a colleague had shared with me some years ago. This case was quite a shock to me at the time and it may surprise you too.

My colleague, Lisbeth Lysdal, is a Newton Institute life between lives hypnotherapist working in Denmark. As well, she is a Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) coach, a medium and healer, and holds a Masters of Science in Engineering.

I contacted Lisbeth and asked her about the case, which has particular relevance to the coronavirus epidemic. As she had not yet published the case, she very kindly agreed let me share it with you, my readers, as a guest blog. Here is Lisbeth exploring this case:

Regression therapists certified with the Newton institute conduct many different cases, some quite unusual. One such case was Peter, 53, a single healthcare worker, dealing primarily with patients who have severe mental handicaps and illness.

Michael Newton was the first person to find out that many of us have jobs on the other side. Some of our clients are very interested to know what they do in the spiritual realm. During his regression, Peter, discovered something completely unexpected in terms of his activities in his life between lives.

Peter came to see me feeling stuck in his life and looking for a new direction. Through coping with a lot of changes over the past years, he developed a deep sense of compassion, and yet he frequently experienced people being afraid of him. He felt annoyed at the way they reacted towards him and wanted to know the cause. He was also interested in understanding his path and purpose, hoping this would also help him release his frustration and anger at others.

Following is an extracted transcript from his regression that takes place just after he enters the spiritual realm.

Peter: I see other souls and feel them acknowledging me as I move in between them.

Lisbeth: And what are they doing as you move between them?

Peter: We are planning how to heighten awareness and consciousness on Earth.

Lisbeth: Are they working individually, in pairs or in larger groups.

Peter: It differs, and yet we all seem to be connected. I am a part of it.

Lisbeth: Describe your experience of being a part of this.

Peter: It is a large community and we all want to do the best we can to help those who are incarnated to have the best possible experience.

Lisbeth: And what is your soul’s purpose as a part of this?

Peter: To create and motivate. I create disease and a lot of other things. (Peter starts crying.)

Lisbeth: What is happening now?

Peter: I just got insight in my part in creating disease. It is a necessity.

Lisbeth: Tell me why this is necessary.

Peter: It is a fast way to change people’s consciousness. Instead of working with disease in an individual, what we do is give large groups the opportunity to change.

Lisbeth: Please explain this to me so I can comprehend how disease can contribute to higher consciousness.

Peter: Instead of working continuously with the individual, the illness makes it possible to activate a development in several places at once.

Lisbeth: And what is activated?

Peter: It moves people’s attention away from the simple tasks of everyday life.

Lisbeth: Tell me more about the use of disease.

Peter: It can be used to bring people together and show them the importance of uniting or help them reunite. It helps them to see the core essence of their relations.

Lisbeth: this seems to be very important work. Tell me are you just part of the planning or are you part of implementing the diseases in the physical?

Peter: We are a group of 10 souls working together. (Sobbing loudly.) We send the disease in at different locations on earth. We have a lot of helpers to do this, some are from the angelic realm.
Some diseases are made to be contagious and some to be spread on a cellular level.

It is not a problem to get the disease implemented, a lot of souls will help in this process. They know it is a necessity when we need to work fast.

Lisbeth: And what do you call this specialization?

Peter: We are highly specialized in creating disease and natural disasters.

Lisbeth: If a soul would want to join your group, how would they train for this?

Peter: It is a very particular field and the requirements are high. They must have experience in healing every disease. We are all healers. We can build and create and that gives us the ability to destroy and be very selective in how and what is broken down. To have this specialization we must be able to work energy in every possible way.

Souls in general learn from the collective and gain wisdom from the experience of others. For this particular specialization, we learnt from the ten souls in this group. But we did not just get this knowledge and training from the collective or training in the spiritual realm.

We have lived every possible aspect of human life and experienced everything. We have lived lives in which we caused every kind of pain and suffering to fully understand the how the physical, emotional and spiritual parts are affected. We have lived lives as victims and healers to get the necessary experience. We have lived isolated lives, being outcasts as well as deeply connected lives. We still incarnate to understand every possible scenario.

Lisbeth: And how do all these experiences affect you in the physical incarnation as Peter?

Peter: I carry all of these experiences and emotions in my physical body.

The strength that comes with experience is also a weakness. I hold all the experience from all the lives lived. I know how to navigate every aspect of existence. The body for this lifetime is very susceptible to emotions and that makes it hard for me to stay on the intended path for this life.

Peter has the physical knowledge that every decision has an effect on the outcome and thus holds every path open until the last minute.

Lisbeth: Is there a way for you to better communicate the intended path to Peter?

Peter: He must listen to the guidance I give him.

Lisbeth: Can we establish a guidance system, that will help Peter easily receive your guidance?

Peter’s guides give him information about various signals that he can use in his daily life. This is important because Peter contacts me after his regression, reporting that he feels increased calm within himself. He says he now understands why others sense a power within him that can feel threatening. From the regression, he has gained a new sense of direction and a new-found confidence in pursuing other career opportunities.

As you can see from the transcript, Peter was very upset when he first realised his job in the life between lives was creating natural disasters, disease and epidemics on Earth.

We on Earth see such events as destructive, particularly pandemics like Covid-19. No one wants to be ill. We would all like to be strong and healthy. But as Peter learns, one can take a different perspective on disease and pandemics.

The higher view is ultimately positive. Our survival on Earth is threatened. The way we have treated Mother Earth and lived our modern lives is a major cause of this problem. We have lost our connection to our true spiritual nature as loving, compassionate, wise beings. Many people on Earth focus on security in the form of possessions and money, while some go even further being selfish and greedy.

By alerting humans to their vulnerability and physical mortality, disease gives humans the opportunity to look for a deeper meaning to their lives and within themselves.

Absent Fathers (Part 2)

Absent Fathers (Part 2)

In part 1 of this topic, I suggested that a father not being fully present for a child is part of their souls’ plan. Children develop strategies to cope with the emotional absence of their father and, as a consequence, the soul learns and grows. We look at another two examples of father absence. Christian Christian was a perfectionist. Although this sometimes suited his career as a specialist engineer, it also contributed to his general feelings of dissatisfaction. He tended to be self-critical, frustrated with his work colleagues and annoyed with his boss who failed to acknowledge his efforts at work. The source of his perfectionism was his childhood relationship with his father. His father, an excellent provider, believed his only job as a husband and father was to bring in the money, mow the lawn occasionally and take out the garbage. Christian’s father worked long hours in a high profile and demanding job. At home after work, he flopped down in front of the TV and tended to be grumpy and critical when interacting with his family. Christian was talented at sport but his father took no interest, never coming to see a game. As is often the case with absent fathers, Christian craved his father’s attention, relentlessly seeking to impress him and gain his approval.   Even though his striving never worked, Christian continued trying to be perfect. He desperately needed to be acknowledged by his boss, colleagues and friends but even when he received a compliment or thanks, he remained unsatisfied.   During his regression, he learned his perfectionism arose from his feelings of worthlessness and his compulsion to please. He was his own worst enemy. He never praised himself, doubting the quality of his work and being constantly self-critical. In previous lives, he had been careless and flippant. His current life plan was to make a shift to being more diligent. His absent father was a catalyst. By withholding fatherly attention and acknowledgement from his son, Christian developed his perfectionism. On the continuum of being very easy going at one end and very precise at the other, Christian had shifted significantly. He was now rigidly precise, causing a lot of frustration for himself when he didn’t quite measure up. Once Christian saw the larger plan for his development, he relaxed. He was on track with his life plan. His negatively reduced and he began acknowledging the progress he was making. He realized there were tasks where being precise was important and others where it wasn’t necessary. Having his perfectionistic tendencies, he easily found the motivation to apply this new knowledge. Once he felt positive about himself and his work, he stopped needing as much positive attention from his boss and colleagues. He was more relaxed at work and started enjoying his work environment. Anna Anna’s father was a quite man. He sat in the corner, reading his books or watching TV. Every now and then he would be annoyed by something his wife did and blow up angrily. He had no interest in his two children. Even though she disliked her father, Anna married a man who was much the same. She soon discovered that her husband was also distant. He took little interest in their two children. Eventually this became too painful for Anna. She sought counseling and decided to leave the marriage. Anna’s father never changed. After her marriage broke up, she went back to live with her parents for a few months. Her father kept to himself and ignored his grandchildren. After her son was diagnosed with autism, Anna realized that both her father and her husband had autistic tendencies. The marriage had survived for as long as it did only because she played the same role as a wife as she had as a child. She tiptoed around her father and she had tiptoed around her husband. She did a life between lives regression because she wondered what she was supposed to learn from these relationships. Anna’s guides reassured her that she was on track. She was on the path of learning how to balance her needs with the needs of others. This is a very difficult lesson to learn. Some people give so much of themselves they become ill. Others are selfish and ignore the needs of others. No matter which side of this continuum, you are on, the consequences of being out of balance are unpleasant. Anna’s husband and father are also in the process of learning this lesson.  Her husband was not happy about her leaving. He had to fend for himself. He might have many challenging lifetimes before he understands the importance of caring for others. When Anna left her husband, she was emotionally drained and feeling lost. She didn’t know who she was and what she really needed. She had given too much of herself away. Now she is tasked with solving this dilemma. Bringing up an autistic son is challenging, especially since she knows she need to balance looking after him with looking after herself. Knowing this is a difficult journey is helpful. We all learn through experience. This means trial and error. Being kind to herself is crucially important whenever she finds the balance getting out of kilter. But she knows she is on the right path and this is a comfort. Absent fathers have their role in our soul development. Those people who have had absent fathers often envy their friends with attentive fathers. Although that is understandable, if you had an absent father, it is worthwhile meditating on the gifts the absence of your father may have given you. One client met his father during his life between lives. He complained. “Why didn’t you ever do anything with me when I was young?” “Don’t you remember son,” his father replied. “You asked me to step back when we first made the plan for your life. You wanted to build your independence.” The focus of our two sessions had been on his need to develop independence. The client knew immediately his father was right. All the past hurt drained away. By taking a high perspective of your soul’s journey through many lifetimes might reveal that your absent father is, in fact, a blessing.
Coronavirus: A Spiritual Perspective

Coronavirus: A Spiritual Perspective

Many people believe that things happen for a reason. Some are religious or spiritually oriented. My grandmother, devoted throughout her life to her Christian God, often used the well-worn phrase, “God moves in mysterious ways.” Without knowing any details, she trusted that those (God) running this universe knew what they were doing.

We are not so trusting these days. We question the motives our government officials, those in charge of our religious institutions and many other people around us. Why would we trust that there is purpose in the spread of the coronavirus with no details or evidence? We are not all naïve children. In our modern world we have seen the greed, the lies and the lack of care of many large and small organisations. The TV series “Dirty Money” and the movie, “The Big Short” shows us how greedy, dishonest and foolish some humans can be.

And yet there are many who still believe that things happen for a reason, including the Covid-19. These are the people who have their feet planted firmly on the ground, while their heart is connected to something greater than us all. They trust that all will be well. Many of these may not identify as spiritual, but they have an inner knowing that there is nothing to fear.

Others, however, want to know why we are suddenly struggling with a virus that has the potential to wipe out millions of people.

Practitioners, like myself, who are members of the Michael Newton Institute, have known for the last couple of years that some great change was coming. We didn’t know what it was, but client after client was told by their spiritual guides that the way we live was going to change, and relatively quickly. 

That might sound crazy to some of you. I thought it was a bit crazy too. Even though I know there is a bigger plan, I couldn’t work out how massive change could come as quickly as the guides were predicting. 

Now, as I watch TV, I feel as though I am watching one of those disaster movies where the newsreader is reporting massive ice sheets or tremendous earthquakes swallowing up the landscape, or aliens in their spaceships landing. I need to pinch myself to switch back onto the facts in front of my eyes: all around the world at the same time, countries are completely shutting down. 

The coronavirus is the catalyst for change. Greed and dishonesty have been running our world and we need to return to love and compassion. People have forgotten who they really are. They don’t need to fight for survival. Although our bodies die, we do not. Even though our bodies change and grow old, our true self does not. We experience, we learn and we grow in wisdom. In the past this was through the pain we suffered. But things are different now. We don’t have to learn the hard way—unless we want to. 

What do we do to help birth this change? I had a client today who was given the answer to this question. 

She was taken back to the moment when her daughter was born. The baby was distressed and there was noise and panic in the room from those assisting. This is what she said: 

I saw the source of light that we see when we are dying. There was this craziness happening on the day, the stress and rush. But I saw a fork in the background, and I took the right path. I stayed with the light. I didn’t panic, in spite of my pain and the panic all around me. I had this sense that all is good. I got the message, ‘trust yourself. You know what you are doing.’ 

 I see angels dancing, happy and smiling. Happiness, joy and fun is coming. There is no need to fear. Good is on its way.

Referring to the challenges we now face, the guides continued their message:

There is light in the world now. The light spreads. It is not just dark anymore. It is different to the past. There is not just black and white now, there is colour. Many are following the old patterns of the past, being fearful and hiding, trying to survive. But there is no need. It is different this time. 

Guilt is an illusion, an old pattern from the past. Forget about it. It is silly and not necessary. There is no need to fear, hide or panic. This is not the same as before a long time ago. Much love and light is in the world now. 

Countless clients, during spiritual regressions, have been told that many light and loving souls have incarnated here to help birth this new Earth. You might be one of them. 

The message from the guides continues: 

Be compassionate for each other, stay with the light. Don’t be selfish. The light is overcoming the dark. Connect to the light, and the dark will be overcome. Each of you has healing power, each of you has light within, and connecting to love and light will bring more enlightening. Slow down and be patient with yourself and others. Trust that all is in control and be responsible and caring. The more you connect to the light (love and compassion) rather than the dark (fear and guilt), the faster it will be overcome. Do right by yourself and by others. 

Although the coronavirus right now may seem dangerous and inconvenient, it is giving us an opportunity to remember what really matters, our loved ones, each other, enjoying life and having fun.

Absent Fathers (Part 1)

Absent Fathers (Part 1)

Fathers who are emotionally absent leave a legacy to their children. Their children usually grow up feeling incomplete, empty or lost in some way. Although many of us disapprove of this legacy, we discover during life between lives regressions that this “father absence” has a purpose.

“My father was absent even when he was present,” mused my client, Lara, as we explored her childhood. Her father read the paper in the morning, rarely acknowledging his three children. He sat at the head of the table at dinner, watching the news on TV. The only time he engaged with Lara was when she had done something that he considered incorrect. Even this critical attention was rare.

Adult children of absent fathers use different strategies to deal with the emptiness they carry.

Desperate for her father’s love and attention, Lara spent her childhood being ‘the good girl, hoping to get a few crumbs of positive attention. It didn’t work, her father had his mind on other things, mainly his work, fulfilling what he believed was his male role—providing for his family.

In her teens, Lara gave up being the good girl and rebelled. She decided her father wasn’t important. In fact, her behavior was largely a reaction to him. Subconsciously, she was trying to get his attention and punish him by being the bad girl.

Lara struggled with her relationships with men. She didn’t know how to relax and be herself. She didn’t know how to express her true feelings. She was always afraid her partners would leave, and they did.

She was attracted to men who were like her father, expecting them to treat her the same way as her father did. And they did. No matter how much she tried to get her partners to love her, they remained distant.

Of course, there was a part of her that would have been terrified if her partner suddenly become loving and attentive. She had no model for dealing with that level of intimacy.

When we did a regression, she realized she was still living with her ‘internalized father.’  She was guided to look more deeply at her father and his history. She saw that his father, her paternal grandfather, was also distant, never emotionally connecting with his children. Times were tough, back then. There were wars and danger. Nearly everyone shut off their emotions and focused on surviving. The father absence had come down the ancestral line.

Lara’s guides told her she could change her relationships with men and attract a different type of man. First, she had to heal her relationship with her father.

She was given an image of her father as a child. He was alone, afraid and confused. She knew what this felt like and she started weeping. She wrapped this little boy up in a blanket of love, crying many tears, not knowing if the tears were hers or her fathers.

After this session, her relationship with her father changed. She didn’t see him as the cold rejecting father anymore. She saw him as the hurt child. She was gentle with him and just a little affectionate. He softened and sometimes asked about her life.

Her guides told Lara that she was here to learn to be loving rather than judging. She had been hurt by her father’s absence, believing it was about her, thinking she was unlovable. In truth, it was not about her at all. Her father was emotionally shut down. His heart had hardened to survive and when Lara was acting out the bad girl, her heart had hardened too.

Lara realized that there is always a reason for people being cool and distant. Sometimes, by asking our guides to help us see the truth, we are given a glimpse of their pain and suffering. Seeing the truth of people, their inner pain, fear and isolation, can lift us out of judgement. Then, as loving souls, we are inclined to treat them carefully, with kindness and compassion.

 

In part 2 of Absent Fathers, we explore two more illuminating cases.

The Miracle of Kindness

The Miracle of Kindness

Have you heard about people walking right past someone who is being attacked or abused? It happens, but not as often as you think.

Researchers from universities in Copenhagen and Lancaster examined 219 different videos of verbal or physical abuse that took place in three cities, Amsterdam, Lancaster and Cape Town. Only in one out of ten instances did people walk by. Ninety percent of people stepped in to help, and this percentage was same in all three cities.

Watching, reading or hearing the news, we can get a warped view about our fellow humans. The media focuses on the negative, on actions that are the opposite of kindness. We need to remind ourselves that most people, about ninety percent in fact, are willing to intervene in circumstances of abuse and violence, even when there is some risk to themselves.  

Most of the clients who come to see me are encouraged by their spiritual guides to be kind and caring. Many find this is their life purpose and are called to act kindly in the face of abuse and criticism. How do they do that?

The following two cases, from the many clients I have seen, help us understand. One is Hashree, a lovely woman, who felt called to undertake a life between lives regression.

In her session, I help Hashree obtain the relaxed state that helps clients experience their past lives and the life between lives. She accesses a past life and, after dying at the end of that life, Hashree arrives back into her timeless spirit home in the life between lives. She explains how that occurs and how she is to proceed.

I am walking on the beach barefoot, wearing a long white flowy dress. My hair is long, curly and blonde. I am meeting somebody, my beloved, and I am saying,” I finally get to be with you.”

I feel so much love. Although, I can’t see his face, he is holding m. Sadly, I feel we are going to be apart soon.

I have something to do that will separate us. Even though I don’t want to leave him, I have to. I have made peace with it now and accepted that I have to go. He is my soulmate and being strong for both of us.

We cannot be together in our lives because we would be too absorbed with each other and lose our focus. Sometimes we meet, when incarnated, but only briefly.

A little boat has come for me. I see him standing under the trees. I am getting in and my dress is getting wet. He laughs and pushes me out on the water while I am saying I don’t want to leave you.

Now I am sailing away. The sky is golden, so beautiful. I am alone on the ocean now. It is quiet and I am enjoying the water. I am at peace.

At this point in the regression, I am not sure whether Hashree is still in spirit or physical, so I ask her. “Are you a spirit now?”

I guess I am. I had to go back to my heavenly father. He wants me back. I have a job to do. I feel no emotion just calm.

I have a purpose, but I don’t know what it is yet. I am resting, having a chance to recover. I feel like I am floating. It is nice. I am still in the in between. I can sense the physical world, but I am not in it. I am resting to build my energy for something. I am a bit apprehensive about what I have to do. My father is saying I can do it. He is filling my heart with so much love it is going to explode. He wants me to take that love and spread it. He said I am joy. There will be sadness too. I am not sure, but he is making me strong so I can do it.

I am still in the in between and I have to make the choice. I could stay here in this calm beautiful place or I can go down again and do this job. From here, I can see Planet Earth and it seems like there is a bubble around it. It’s like I can poke my finger in it.

My father says I have been chosen because I am strong. I have the job of going back into a body and touching sad, unhappy people to enlighten something positive in them.

Obviously, Hashree does come back to Earth into her current incarnation. She is married with children and now speaks from that perspective.

In my current life, I have been given this heart to love. But it gets broken a lot. I still carry the sadness of leaving my spiritual home. I don’t like to come back to Earth, but I have work to do.

Hashree starts crying. In her current life, her husband needs her, but this man is not her soulmate. As well, he has a tendency to be critical and this often hurts her.

I don’t understand people speaking badly to others and to me. I am looking at my husband and I see his heart is sad. I just have to be kinder to him. My heart can cope. I am strong. I just gained the insight and strength to carry this burden. My strength is love.

We are on this journey together and I am to help unlock his heart. I am to show him forgiveness. As I forgive him, I help him find forgiveness for himself. He is good soul, but he is carrying some guilt. I need to look past everything, past him being human, and see the divinity underneath.

I feel this light so bright that my hair is standing on end.

People are sad because they have forgotten who they really are. I remind them by seeing the divinity in them. Before, when I felt hurt, I allowed my human nature to take over.  But his criticism is not really about me. Now I get a sense that I am not attached to anything. I am free.

Someone just said, I am the joy maker. I can bring laughter. My gift is words and the way I speak with love.

During her regression Hashree is given information about her purpose, but that is not all she receives. Her guides give her a firsthand experience of the power and energy of love. This changes her, reminding her of who she really is and why she is on the planet. Her path is acting with unconditional love and this brings joy to her and others.

In another regression, a client, Lindsay, is learning to express kindness. His guides give him some tips on how to do this.

To be kind and loving you need patience and no personal agenda. You cannot invest yourself in the outcome. When you are moving to love, you are not concerned about anyone succeeding or not. Winning or being right is not important. In other words, our acts of kindness are not tied to any need in us.

It is not about trying to be good. It is doing what feels right and what you know is right. You just do your best and let everything else go.

When helping someone we usually hope that he or she succeeds, improves, recovers or, at least, survives. If we step in when someone is being abused, we may want to win. If someone is critical or arguing with us, we can be defensive, wanting to be right. But the guides are clear on all the above, it is not our concern.

We help because it is who we are. Being caring and kind is in our nature. When we are kind, we are expressing our true self. How would we feel if we walked by, ignoring the genuine needs of others? That is not who we really are. Kindness to others is also kindness to ourselves.

Better than Wild Sex

Better than Wild Sex

I know two women who are missing out on the best potential time of their lives. They are looking after their elderly husbands. Many years ago, each married a man who was around twenty years older than they were. At the time, each woman was not coping well alone. Their husbands provided much needed emotional and financial security.

For around thirty years, the marriages survived and were reasonably happy, but in recent years there has been a change. The men grew old and became ill. Both men were successful in their businesses, seeing themselves as strong, protective and capable. Now they are struggling to cope with their physical demise. Their wives describe them as weak, needy and demanding. Both women are tired, frustrated and resentful. They hate looking after these men who once looked after them.

Blanche d’Alpuget didn’t miss out. She was the main carer of her husband, Bob Hawke, the former prime minister, nursing him during the last year of his life when he was at his weakest.

After his death, she said the joy of mature love involves great softness and intimacy with no pretence or secrets, and that she found it wonderful to look after the one she loved.

We often said to each other that we’ve been blessed to have this period together.

 [It has been] the most tender and intimate of our whole lives. For me [our relationship ranged from] the wild excitement of sexual ecstasy to the great tenderness of looking after a person who was completely dependent upon me. And there is much greater intimacy, actually, in looking after somebody who is in that ­debilitated state than there is in even the wildest sex.

Some people might find it difficult to believe that caring for a loved one can be so gratifying. But I have come across this before in my clients. Some feel like this in their current lives and some have felt it about their past lives. One of the latter is Lorraine.

In the regression, Lorraine re-lived a past life in America as a man, Jimmy, who married in mid-life. Three years after they married, his wife, Maddy, fell off a horse and was crippled.

She is sitting in a rocking chair and I am bringing her iced tea on a platter. I am the carer. I just want to look after her because she is so brave, and I love her so much. We didn’t have any children and we really wanted them. There is a sadness about that in her.

I am looking at the sunset, realising there is more to life than children. She appreciates the care I give her.

We are sitting on the porch of a two-story house, near the town. I see horses going by. We have lots of friends and they and others come by and say hello.

We love bantering, being funny, singing, talking and dreaming together. She is not demanding but she does have a mind of her own. She has a view about things, she reads and teaches me what she knows. I had to wait a long time for her to come into my life

There is a piano in the house, and I play it in the evenings. Now we are having a drink together. I carry her upstairs to bed. Although it is limited; it is a lovely life.

Now I see myself on the porch alone, feeling sad. She is gone.

I died around 60, from a heart attack about five years after she passed. I grew some plants for her and watched them grow. It was too long. I missed her.

We made a pact. She would like to look after me next time. She is my friend and the love of my life. That is why I love sunflowers. I planted some.

I feel peaceful now. I see that it is important to appreciate looking after another and doing so is joy. It was pure joy looking after her with the love between us.

No doubt it takes a lot of energy looking after another who is needy. There are times of exhaustion and frustration. But it gives us an opportunity to reach into the most loving part of ourselves rather than giving into resentment. To do this, our love for ourselves needs to be strong and resilient, as strong as our love for another.

We are spiritually mature when we realise it is privilege to be either the carer, or the one being cared for.
