Topic: Accepting The Now
July 11, 2015







ALFRED:
Today's topic is "Accepting The Now."  Without further ado, I present to you the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King.

HANS:
Hello everybody. What a beautiful day it is today no matter where you are. This is a beautiful day, absolutely beautiful. For many years you've heard me discuss about trying to look at where you are. You know most people live a daily life that is a projection of what they'd like to see in their life today. But it's "out there". It's out in the ethers. You'd like to have this place, or you'd like to have this partner, you'd like to have this job... And we spend most of our time outside of our own spiritual and emotional arena looking at what "could be". What we'd like to see.

And Spirit always brings us back to the moment of "it is now". Your life is about "now". Where are you "now"? And we simply don't want to do that.  We want to say: Well, I'm here but I'm going there. I'm here but someday I'll be there. And we constantly do this. We constantly live "out there" in the possibility that the mind creates for us. Rather than in the actual moment. And one of the things that Spirit teaches us is that each minute has a value. Each day has a value.

You've sometimes heard me say that on any given day 4 billion people would trade places with you in a heartbeat because their perception of where you're at is so much greater than their reality. We look at it and say: Oh, gee well...  I got the rent paid, or the mortgage is due, or the car payment needs to be paid. And we constantly are doing battle with the “not enough” syndrome. Things are not enough.

A wise person would say to you: Have you all you already need in this moment? If you listen to the emails that come in today, and every week, almost all emails are about what “could” happen... what you'd like to see happen... why isn't this happening... why isn't that happening... And each time you do that you invalidate the lesson of "the now"... the moment of now... how important "the now" is in your life. Remember, we put a series of "nows" together and that creates our life, you see? Not what we fantasize on, not what we imagine, not what we prayed for, not what we hoped for. 

Life is in the moment. Accepting the moment in your life, right now, as the most important time in you life right now. And finding a value. Going out in the garden, finding a flower. Yesterday Alfred and I saw an Iguana who was doing battle with a bunch of blackbirds over some bread and chasing the blackbirds because they were stealing his bread. Now all he knew in that moment was he wanted that bread and so he scattered everybody else away and puffed himself up and nodded his head up and down and showed how tough he was. But really, he just wanted the bread.

So in your daily life, when you wake up in the morning, say something like: I love this day. I appreciate that I have this day. I wonder what this day holds for me. Not immediately start wondering about this thing or that thing or something else... but just "in the moment", what's in this for me today. Alfred, do you have something on this topic?

ALFRED:
A lot of our clients are confused about the difference between everything you need is “in the moment" and us teaching, and everyone else... a lot of spiritual teachers teaching about manifestation, abundance, things that you want in your life and how do you reconcile the difference between the two? But the reality is  they go hand-in-hand together. And how can they? If you have everything why you ask for something?

The reality is that in the brain's way of dealing with things.... it holds the energy.  I'm going to happier “then”, I'm going to be peaceful “then”, “when” I'm abundant,  “when” this thing manifests. That is very human way of going about it. Spiritually speaking, you hold your energy in the moment and when you are abundant, you are abundant in the moment. Now asking Spirit to work with things... You can create the energy, ask for the vibration, ask for the feeling, but "release it".

See, that is the major difference is you're not holding the vibration about something manifesting or abundance happening. You are releasing your wish, releasing your desire, and going back to being in the moment. So there is no problem with asking Spirit for something. It's whether or not you are holding onto that energy or releasing it and trusting the Other Side.

HANS:
Thank you, thank you, thank you. As I do this Show, I have flowers on my computer... it shows me my different kinds of flowers. And I have to tell you each and every flower is living it its moment. It's not worried about tomorrow. It's not worried about anything. It's just in the moment. And then comes the bee along to sit in the flower. The bee is where it wants to be and the flower is where it wants to be. So in the moment it is perfect.

I'm just going to run a little scenario here. This is Spirit speaking... this is me speaking. Let's say that you have a nice little one bedroom, or for that matter a studio apartment at this time in your life, and you long for a larger apartment, you long for a bigger experience. Perhaps an experience of living somewhere that's different than where you're living. We spend far more energy producing those thoughts than we do being grateful for where you are at the moment. Acceptance. Being available to know that this "here", wherever you are right now is the foundation or the groundwork for that tomorrow. 

We've set our intention in place. And we "know" that this is so important because we cannot get "there" without being "here". It's impossible. There's an old saying in England that I love that says: The person who starts at the top is certain to drop. This I have found to be absolutely correct. You must climb your way up the ladder. But you start, number one, what I have I taught you - Intention. Making the moment okay for now. Not struggling, not using this to say: Oh, my apartment's too small... or you know I don't like the area that I live in and my neighbors don't like me... No, no, no. Being grateful for “the moment of the now"... that's what's important.

ALFRED:
And being grateful for what you have also goes hand-in-hand with manifestation and abundance. Because if you hold on to what you don't have, you're telling Spirit: I'm not grateful for what I have in my life right now. Why would They give you anything more? The lesson here is to be grateful for where you are in the moment. That understanding where you are is perfect. And if something happens to show up in your life well that would be fine. But it does not take away from your gratefulness for what you have in your life right now... where you are in your life right now.

And this is very difficult for older souls. Because older souls, as we know, go through more difficult lessons. And that is a very difficult thing...

HANS:
That's very important, Alfred.

ALFRED:
… is to understand that regardless of how long the lesson goes on... how old we are in our lives... to be grateful for the situation that we're in because it's a lesson that we asked for. Okay?

HANS:
Yes. Isn't that one of the keys?

ALFRED:
It is the key because even if your life isn't as you want it to be... as your mind tells you it "could" be, as your mind perceives the way it is, the truth is, for many of us old souls, we're in the middle of what we asked to work for, to work through, to learn, to experience. And it is "that" which you need to be grateful for. It is then that Spirit realizes that you've learned the lesson.

HANS:
Absolutely, Alfred. If I have a deck of cards and it looks full but only one card is missing, can you actually play a game without that card? It would be very hard. So by accepting where you are, in the moment, in the wisdom, in the knowledge, in the understanding that it is part and parcel "of" your dream. Not trying to go to a better place from a place of victimization, from a place of something is wrong, from a place that is the appearance of lack. But a quiet knowing and a quiet understanding that I accept this because this is where I am to be and am supposed to be here, at my request.

This is part and/or parcel of my tomorrows. And when someone comes into your life and they're in your life for a long time but the relationship just doesn't seem to work anymore, we should never throw stones at that person - ever. We should be blessing that person, loving that person, wishing them well. That's what's important is appreciating the moment. Because it's out of the moment that all of your tomorrows come. Okay?


Alfred, I think that will conclude the lesson for today.

GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE Radio Show

Topic: Modern Day Fears
July 7, 2015







ALFRED:
The topic for today is "Modern Day Fears." Without further ado, I present to you the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King.

HANS:
Hello everybody. Happy 4th of July to all of you and to our beautiful country. I've been getting a lot of emails from people, very concerned about the government coming out and giving its warning, and the pundents about terrorist attacks during this holiday. And the pundents, as I've said, coming out and really revving it all up and trying to sensationalize things.

Folks, the chances are that none of you will ever be affected by something of this nature. It is a difficult time and I'm not going to play light with it. But if you move yourself into the light... This is a wonderful opportunity to practice what we've been trying to teach you throughout the years. Do not be affected by the appearance of things. You see, they're not saying: There will be an attack. They're saying: Well... there might be... we don't know... but our job is to let you know that the social media traffic from the terrorists is up... and...

Folks, shut it down please. Don't go there. Don't be afraid of something that you simply don't know. Go about your daily life. We have a tendency, sometimes, to be more afraid of what we don't know than what we do know. Because at least if we know something we can handle if - if we don't know, then our mind chatter takes over. So don't allow your mind chatter to take over. 

I had an email yesterday from someone saying to me: Are we going the way of Greece? Is this what's going to happen? Should I take my money out of the bank?  Where should I send my savings? Folks, if the United States goes down, everybody goes down - period. We are the Bank of the World - not the Chinese, not the British, we are. 

And I will tell you right now we are, as I told you some time ago, recovering from this hellacious situation we found ourselves in with our banking industry and our stocks. And so it's time for all of you, who have been sending me these emails, telling me how worried you are, how concerned you are, to begin to practice what I've been trying to teach you lo these many years. If you search for fear, you will find it. If you allow fear into your heart, it will live there.

Remember, maybe about 2 or 3 months ago, Alfred, we did a Show called "Doubt and Fear Can Only Live In The House You Build"? Remember that?

ALFRED:
Yes. And what we're trying to say here is that fear is a choice. You can try to fear something you don't understand. You can try to fear what the Media tells you. You can try to be fearful, like other people tell you to be fearful. Or, you can make a choice "not to". And that's pretty much the basis of spirituality... is to go along with the illusion of humanness. In this case, fear of Greece, fear of terrorism, fear of... just watch FOX News and there will be 15 things to fear within the first 30 minutes.

Follow humanness “or” make a choice not to. So basically, are you creating a space for fear? Are you following the illusion? Or are you choosing “not to”?

HANS:
Thank you, Alfred. So what we're going to do is use today and all that's going on as an opportunity to not allow our internal fears to attach themselves to the imaginary fears that are out there. Yes, do we have terrible people in this world? We do. We have some very misguided people in this world. Are they hurting people? Yes, they are. And our hearts go out to every one who has been hurt by these people.

However, know in your heart that that fear and all of that hellaciousness can only come to visit us if we let it. Somebody said the other day: The moment we stop broadcasting all the stuff about ISIS and about all... it will start to disappear because it's done for headlines... to gain recruits. Okay? It is time for all of us to remember that that fear, that doubt, that anxiety, is being caused by our own emotions - not actually what's going on - but with our own emotions. So it's time to practice what we've been teaching you. 

The crisis in Greece is unfortunate but we've known about it for a very long time. The Greek economy is only the size of the State of South Carolina, folks. It's not going to topple the world. It will never happen. The terrorists are terrible. Yes, we understand that. But the likelihood of you being hurt by them is less than being struck by lightening. So open your heart up to the possibility that maybe all this terror and all this fear is an opportunity for you to grow yourself spiritually.

ALFRED:
So what is a spiritual practice? How do you deal with this fear? Well, let's take an example that we have in Southern California - traffic.

(Hans laughing)

ALFRED:
Let's use a real concrete example. Most of the highways in Los Angeles are concrete... You're in traffic and you have two choices. You can be upset that you're in traffic or you can breathe and be peaceful in traffic. What's the difference? The traffic didn't change. Its what is your state of being while there is traffic. 

Are you kind and do you bless people as they cut you off? Or do you get upset and have anxiety because there is traffic and have the tension of everybody else? The thing is - what is outside of you is not going to change. You can change your vibration, your frequency... what is “inside” of you. Okay? 

So that is the first spiritual practice is can you actually have an influence on terrorism? Probably not. Can you any influence on Greece? Probably not. So the questions is - without anything changing outside of you, can you change the way you feel?

HANS:
So in other words, this is a wonderful opportunity to grow ourselves through this difficult time.

ALFRED:
Correct. And if someone comes up to you... if the Media comes up to you and starts telling you things you should be fearful about or start discussing politics. Your question is do you want to really want to change that person? Do you really want to change the News? Or would it just be simply a lot easier to say to that person: You know what? That really doesn't bother me. That really doesn't have an effect on my life. I don't want to be part of that conversation. Or turn off FOX News and turn on some wonderful Documentary about Africa or Travel or turn off the TV.

I haven't watched TV in about 15 years and I'm ever so grateful for it. And Lord knows I don't watch...

HANS:
Well you do watch Formula One.

ALFRED:
Formula One. I like race cars. Yes, that's my treat now. Off-road stuff, Formula One... Hans likes Travel... Or just turn the TV off and just go outside. The new ritual we now have here in Mexico is we wake up everyday and feed the turtles in the pond. That's our new ritual.

HANS:
We hope to have a video of that up at some point. 

ALFRED:
Maybe we'll share that one...

HANS:
Yeah.

ALFRED:
So the whole point here is the very basic spiritual principle is you may or may not be able to change what is outside of you. You probably are not going to be able to change traffic in Los Angeles, terrorism, Greece going under, the U.S. economy... But what you can change is how you feel - the joy in your life, the love in your life. The vibration you give off...

HANS:
In other words, what you're willing to let in.

ALFRED:
Yes. And how you feel - your “perception” of life.

HANS:
Again it goes back to "perception". So I was looking this morning and we're feeding these turtles and there's about 30 of them and they're of different sizes, but they're fresh water pond turtles... How many of you had the little ones with the red on the side of the cheek when you were a kid? Spirit said to me: They don't seem to be concerned about the Greek Crisis. They don't to be concerned about terrorists. They don't seem to be concerned about Mr. Trump. They just want to get some food. That's their focus.

And folks, are the turtles smarter than we are? They don't let that fear into their heart. They just want to know is someone going to give them grub today. And they can spot Alfred half the pond away and they start peddling across that pond, their little heads sticking up out of that water, and they race to start crawling up the side... In any case, we'll get it up and on our website.

ALFRED:
We'll send it out in the Newsletter.

HANS:
Yeah, that'd be great. That'd be great.

ALFRED:
We have a Newsletter coming out. Everybody get a Newsletter. Go to HansKing.com and join up for our Newsletter if you don't have it. And then, of course, we send out every month a free audio lesson. And you can SHARE that. If you get the Newsletter, please SHARE the Newsletter with your friends or anybody you'd like to share it with.

HANS:
Let's stop for a moment and remember we're celebrating our birthday for our country. Why don't we stop for a minute and think of all the good that's in our country... all the incredibly good people... all the good that's being done. We have a government that some people like and some people don't like. But they basically keep us safe. We have an economy that's the fastest growing economy in the Western World currently. Our currency is stable. We have a fairly decent health care system. We have so much to be grateful for. 

So folks, turn off the pain and turn on the wonder. If you have children, take them to see some fireworks. If you're feeling lonely, go down and get in a group of people and start hollering and carrying on. Go see some parades. Open yourself up to all the wonder... all the possibilities that are out there. We're a great nation with great intentions. And let's remember to separate the nation from the politicians. There are two different things going on there.

Recently, we've had some Supreme Court Rulings that have upset some people. And thrilled others. In order to be a great nation, which Churchill once said: You will be judged how you treated your poorest of citizens... your most disenfranchised citizens. All people are equal. Let's stop the racism and division... all the stuff. And just remember at the end of every Show I say: And remember always that God does not love any one more in this world than you. Because it's the truth. That's a fact.

This particular show will be rather short today because we don't have very many questions. So let's use this opportunity today to remind ourself that we have a choice, as Alfred said, between being fearful and in doubt or being happy and feeding the turtles.


Alfred, that will conclude, for today, the lesson.

Topic: Ignoring The Illusion
June 27, 2015








ALFRED:
The topic for today is "Ignoring The Illusion." So without further ado, I present to you the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King.

HANS:
Hello everybody. Welcome, welcome, welcome. You should see the hoops we're having to jump through in order to be able to do this today but it makes us happy to be able to get to you. "Ignoring The Illusion". You know folks, in life, you often heard me say that: Life is nothing more than an illusion. And I preface it by saying: You know, there's nothing going on in your life that you did not create. The mind, however, is an entirely different entity and it actually believes that these are real problems... that these things that you're going through you need to be concerned about, you need to be worried about.

This month I asked my dear friend Melinda to please write about this subject. And I have to tell all of you, she's done a terrific job and you'll see it in the Newsletter which will be coming out when Alfred?

ALFRED:
We usually do them in the first week of each month and there is about 2 or 3 years of Articles and Spiritual Topics specifically for women. You can find those in the Newsletter, or you can go to HansKing.com and under "Free Resources" you can find the "Free Articles for Women". 

HANS:
Life, as we know it, is based on what each one of us is busy creating. Okay? That's something that's very, very hard for people to grasp. They believe what they're seeing is real. But folks, everyday in your life you pass through other people's emotions, other people's creations. So nothing is actually planned folks. Spirit has an overall plan for all of us and we stay on that. But everything else... how you arrive at your destination is entirely up to you. Okay?  

And so having a quiet understanding that: Oh, wait a minute, this isn't real... I had a dear lady friend of mine email me the other day and her life has just gotten so complex. She's worried about money, she's worried about being alone, she's worried about whether she'll lose her job, she's worried about whether she'll make her mortgage payment, her light bill was too high... this and that. It's just non-stop. But none of it is "real" and none of it is "true". But the mind chatter continues to invest in the appearance of it. And the more the mind chatter invests in the appearance of it, the larger it gets and seems to become "real".

This is why I say to you... You know I did a lecture at Agape some years ago and one of the questions that I asked was... about 1,400 people in the audience, I said: Can anyone in this room tell me what's going on in their life that they did not create? And nobody raised their hand... nobody. But you also don't sit around and sit that I'm making up this stuff either... for yourself. You know you're having these fears and doubts but you normally don't say: Am I just making this up? Is this real? Why am I lending energy to this?

So one of the things that Alfred and I teach is when you learn to start to pull yourself back from the appearance of what you've created, your whole life as you have known it, changes immediately. Alfred, any words on this?

ALFRED:
One thing about ignoring the illusion that we want you to understand is how much your mind tries to trick you into making what it thinks is "real". It's not just that mind chatter reminds you of the past or makes you worried about the future. But it makes you "feel" as though those things are actually "real". And the truth is - it's the past, it's gone, it doesn't exist. But your mind will not just simply remind you of what happened. It will remind you of the emotion, or it will remind you of the pain like it was yesterday. And you need to ask yourself when you're feeling something that's in the past to say: How real does it feel? But how long ago really was it? Was it last year, five years ago, ten years ago, twenty years ago?

HANS:
Exactly.

ALFRED:
But your mind is making it "feel" like it was yesterday. That's not the truth. That's an illusion. And the same thing also with the future is if your mind is making you worried about something that does not exist, because the future does not exist yet, it feels like it is "real". What if this could happen? What if that happens? And your mind makes you start freaking out and worrying like it is the truth. Like it is actually happening. And you're getting all stressed. And the reality is it's an illusion. Your mind is making you feel stressed about something that doesn't exist.

HANS:
And I've noticed, Alfred, that through the years when Spirit and I in our sessions try to remove those fears and those doubts from the people, they try desperately to hang onto them.

ALFRED:
And that's what we're trying to say is just because you "feel" something is real, doesn't mean it is real. It is an illusion. Okay? So it's not just that your mind presents you with false truths in its speaking but it makes you "feel" things that are not true also. And it really detaches us from a state of ease, it detaches us from our peacefulness, it detaches us from who we really are.

HANS:
And as we've always taught you - No two things can be in the same place at the same time. So when you're busy running all of this stuff... How often, Alfred, have both of us heard: I don't think Spirit hears me. They hear you. You have no place to hear Them. You're too busy manufacturing all of these illusions and not only children do you manufacture them, you spend time and effort investing in them, re-creating them over and over and over again.

So it's really important to sit down and ask yourself: Wait a minute. Is in fact any of this true? And what you're going to find out is: No, it's not true. But your mind chatter will try to tell you that the illusion is real because it created it. And like Alfred said earlier, it's always a matter of what "could" happen.

ALFRED:
Yes. For things in the future, things that "could" happen, there is a difference between thinking about something in the future that "could" happen and what your mind does to you which is making you believe that it is "real" and that you should actually prepare yourself and feel for that thing that is real that doesn't exist in the future.

HANS:
(Laughing) I know that if you're listening to this now. Alfred's smiling. It does sound funny - but it's true. Have you noticed that most of the questions that come into this Show are questions about what "might" be going to happen? And them some of them are about "why did that happen"... which used to be a "what if this happens"? Because being in the human form we tend to take the improbable and turn it into the appearance of reality. Have you noticed that, Sir?

ALFRED:
Especially if something has happened to you in the past, your mind wants to protect you. It wants to control the distinct possibility that what it's telling you is the truth and it's going to happen again and you need to protect yourself. And it needs to remind you of what happened, so that you can remember what happened, and you can feel what happened, in case it happens to you again.

HANS:
Exactly. It tries to reinforce itself.

ALFRED:
So the funny thing is that your mind is actually bringing to you that which you're trying to avoid.

HANS:
Exactly.

ALFRED:
How's that one for a "why"? So you're trying to avoid the thing. But in the reality,  your mind is bringing it to you every single day by you thinking about it and the mind makes you "feel" like it actually is happening. So if you think about that, your mind is actually really convoluted. But it's so hard and that's what we're trying to tell you, is to tell the difference between something that isn't "real" - the past and the future... in this case the past, something that happened. It's over.

Now we do have a lot of Advanced Meditations in the Intuitive Development Class that help you separate who you are from things that happened in the past. We're trying to tell you right now just to be "aware" that your mind is doing these things "to" you. It's much more advanced to say: Okay, now that I'm aware that these things are lie, what do I do with the lies? How do I handle them?

So what we're talking about is whether your mind chatter is making you believe or feel something is the truth is really to dissect the matter and determine: Is this truth? Is this real?

HANS:
That's the key point, Alfred, right there. Is it truth? No fear is truth. Now there are moments in our life where somebody may cut us off on the freeway or there's a close call with another person in some sort of endeavor you're doing where fear will come up.

ALFRED:
Or your child is running around the house with a knife.

HANS:
Yes, well that would do it.

ALFRED:
Yes, that's real fear.

HANS:
Did you ever do that, Alfred? Or was it a broomstick or a baseball bat?

ALFRED:
We used to play with elastics. Like shoot elastics. And my parents would always scream: Be careful! It's going to hit you in the eye! And one day it did. The elastic went in the wrong direction... That's real. Okay? But the majority of what your mind tells you we want you to take a look at and dissect it calmly and say: Is it real? Is it really appropriate that I'm on high alert feeling these emotions.

HANS:
So basically what we're saying to you is investing in the illusion of what the mind chatter is creating takes you directly away from your ability to engage Spirit. And the more you do that, the more you invest, the less and less and less... And then you wind up emailing Alfred and I and say: Where has God gone? Where has Spirit gone? They haven't gone anywhere - you have. The adage is that: No two things can be in the same place at the same time.

ALFRED:
And what we're trying to tell you is: God is always there. Guidance is always there. Spirit is always there. Universal energy, abundance, love - that is always there. The question is: Are you allowing your humanness to separate you from that which always is? Okay? Let me say that again: Are you allowing yourself to separate from that which always is? Are you allowing your mind chatter, are you allowing these feelings to come in and take over you and separate you and block that which always is around you?

HANS:

We do that ourself, children. We simply do it ourself. Alfred, I think that will conclude the lesson for today.

Topic: Lost Expectations
June 20, 2015




ALFRED:
The topic of today "Lost Expectations." So without further ado, I present to you the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King.

HANS:
Oh, Hi everybody! It's so great to be back onto a regular schedule again. Like Alfred said, we've been all over creation and working, doing lectures,workshops, what-have-you and so I've been back home... For those of you who've been emailing me "How am I doing" - I'm doing better folks. I had a really, really nasty lung infection and a great doctor over here has got me up and running. I feel so much better, I can't tell you.

So I want to talk today about "Lost Expectations". How do we handle Lost Expectations? You know - "A wish is a prayer the heart makes". And sometimes we get ourself locked into something that will change our life or make us feel better and we start to get invested in it and we start planning what we're going to do when "that' happens and how our life is going to get better because this happens.  But there's also a little tiny thing in there that says "If I get it, God still loves me".

I had a lady say that to me yesterday: I know if this shows up Hans, it proves to me that God still loves me. God always loves you. Not every thing that you're praying for and hoping for comes true in the moment. But if you're patient, and I needed to use some patience today, believe me when I tell you... And I caught myself getting very fussy about something that I knew I had no control over. But it was an expectation that I had to give up.

In any case, coming back up the mountain tonight I thought to myself: Perhaps this is a good time to practice what I preach. And so I caught myself laughing and I'm still doing it. Expectations... Lost Expectations. Because something doesn't show up in your expectation in the moment and/or in the timing does not children, again does not mean anything is wrong. On the contrary, it's working it thing through... for you.

Most things that we pray for come true in one form or another, if we're patient. We get impatient when it doesn't show up in our time expectation. Then we start to add all kinds of negative energy to it. Have you noticed that Alfred, when something doesn't show up in our expectation time wise, we start running our mind crazies?

ALFRED:
Absolutely. And the issue here is that the mind thinks it not only can expect something externally but it actually has some type of control over what happens outside of us.

HANS:
Exactly.

ALFRED:
And the spiritual truth is that you have little or no control over what happens outside of you. So when your mind has an expectation of the result of what's going to happen, but the spiritual truth is that you really have no control over anything outside of you, you're literally just wasting energy. See, your mind is really lying to you telling you have control and people should do what you asked them to do. 

Where, in reality, the truth is free will. Everyone has free will. You have free will. Everyone external to you has free will. So by the law of free will, no one has to do anything.

HANS:
That is correct. Nicely put, Alfred. Thank you for that. Nicely put. Sometimes we take our expectation and we begin to talk to our friends and our family and we share our expectation and then everybody gets excited about our expectation and nothing happens. It's just quiet. It's just... what happened? Nothing happened, children. It's working through its timing. If you listen to the Questions throughout the years here on the Show... and Alfred, I believe we're in our 5th year...

ALFRED:
Yes, I think we are.

HANS:
Yep, I think so. And if you listen to the Questions kids, you will hear so many people say: But when? When you pull your expectation of the time, you begin to open the door for the natural free will of the event, which Spirit already knows, God already knows, and if it is for you, They are currently working on it and will see it through to its rightful conclusion.

However, this is what concerns me as your Teacher. In the process of it not showing up, we start to run the mind chatter that disconnects to our belief. And that is something we all need to be careful of. We don't want to do that. If it doesn't show up, we say: I know it is and I'm preparing myself for when it does. Removing the expectation that says: It has to show up in my expectation, in my time, in my need, so I can feel certain that God loves me. You see?

Now I can hear many of you say: Oh, I don't do that. And I would say to you: You want to bet? For instance, I had a young lady who went to dinner with another young lady friend of hers and they are in their 40's... and a friend of one of them came by to say: Oh, hi. And said: Oh, this is a friend of mine, we're out for the evening. Nice to see you. What's your name? Anyway, that girl went from that place of: Hi, nice to meet you "to" getting married, having children, moving, setting up a whole new life, when there was nothing in the conversation that even mentioned the date. 

That's how our mind starts to set an unrealistic expectation. Rather than say: I know someone like that is on the way. I know my perfect partner is, in fact, on the way and I will be ready for it when it happens. And then get on living and loving your god and get on with your life. We don't do that. She's terribly crushed. And she's terribly disappointed because she never heard from the gentleman. The fact that he doesn't have her phone number never seems to enter her mind. But if my god loved me, my god would have set this up for me. You see how that works, Alfred?

ALFRED:
Absolutely. And it's our mind that interferes with the spiritual process of Spirit working “with” us. When we have expectations, when the mind chatter comes in, when we try to figure out how things should be, when we try to control the outcome, then we're telling Spirit: We know what's better. 

HANS:
Yes.

ALFRED:
We know what's best for me. And the truth is, while we're in humanness, we have no clue. We don't have the slightest idea about our path in life. 

HANS:
No.

ALFRED:
And so the Other Side says: Okay, great. Let me know how that work for you.

HANS:
Right.

ALFRED:
(Laughing)

HANS:
So what I'm trying to get at today, kids, is that living in the wonder of the moment... You have heard Alfred and I discuss this for years now. Just learning to be in the moment - all is well. And you can feel when your mind starts to disrupt your joy. You can feel it! Alfred's always pointing out and saying: And how do you "feel" with this? How do you "feel" when that happens? He's big on the feelings because it's true. And you can "feel" Alfred when you go from being in the bliss to having the mind chatter take over and start kicking you around. You can feel it.

ALFRED:
That's right. Your connection to Spirit is through energy and vibration. 

HANS:
Yes.

ALFRED:
That is universal energy, that is clair-sentient abilities to communicate and receive guidance from Spirit. And quite simply, if you have an expectation, you are in your head. You're blocking your ability to receive that feeling, to receive that guidance. So basically the lesson here is "it's a choice". If you have an expectation, that's fine. But if you're wondering why expectations hurt, it's because you're approaching life through your mind chatter. The spiritual lesson here instead is to release expectations and live in the moment. Where, from the moment, you'll be able to receive guidance and “feel” if something is for you or not.

HANS:
Absolutely... absolutely. And Alfred, there's a certain bliss that comes from being in the moment. I've been up here for 2 weeks with Bella, just she and I. In these beautiful mountains we go out and sit in the rocking chair out on the front porch in the morning and I have my coffee and I think these words every day: Oh my goodness, how blessed am I to be in this moment. And she curls up, because she doesn't like to get up early... and we just talk and it's a wonderful feeling of no mental activity. Just peace and joy in the moment. Because our mind isn't telling us that anything is wrong. 

And that's the only thing... as far as I am concerned about is that the mind chatter brings fear, doubt and sadness to us. You can retrain your mind to start expecting joy, to start expecting peace... you can do that. We've got lots of products on-line that can help you get to that place.

Alright Alfred, I think that will, in fact, conclude the lesson for today.

Topic: Fear vs Faith and Trust in Spirit 
June 12, 2015




HANS:
Good evening everybody. Well, here we are. We made it back to California and a good time was had in Mexico. I thank all of you for your kind wishes that you sent. We got a lot of work done... a lot of things that we needed to get done and we're back here. We did take Bella... her first airplane trip. 

Going down the dogie Valium worked; coming back the dogie Valium didn't work. We had to go from Puerto Vallarta to San Francisco and she did not like that. And she let us know in no uncertain terms. But she's just fine as you hear her tonight rustling around, well you'll know that she's up and running again.

Thank all of you for your kind emails this week. They have been very, very generous in the praise of this show and what it means to me... So I thank you all so very, very much.

Tonight I want to talk about a subject called "Why is Trust So Hard"? You know through the years you've heard me speak of trust and faith and... Have you ever noticed how we trust when things are going our way? And then when things start to get side-tracked, when life takes a detour, we have a tendency to let trust slip. 

And guess what comes in to replace trust? Fear - our old friend - Fear. Isn't it easy how we can go... When everything is fine, we say: Oh, I trust, I trust, I trust. But let something go wrong in our imagination, from our perception... let something go awry and suddenly all that trust that we said we had begins to turn to fear and despair. And then the "what-if's" and the "possibilities" and the "could's" and maybe there... maybe, just maybe our faith wasn't as strong as we thought it was.

Trust is a strange term. For me, trust means "being". Knowing all that happens around me has nothing to do with me. Of course when you get to be my age you can probably say that. But I think when you're a younger person or you're in your 30's or 40's or early 50's, I think it's much different because there are so many things that present themselves to us.

You know, since the election, so many of my friends, not only in this country but overseas, have been saying: But we believed. But we had faith. We knew we that this was the way that we needed to go and now look at what's happened, we've been punished for it. Remember what I say to you folks sometimes when I say: "And what makes you think anything is wrong?" Our perception is that somebody won an election. Somebody apparently appeared to lose an election. But is that true? 

If we have trust that right action will prevail no matter what the appearance... If we back away from the pundents... I catch myself... Oh, my goodness shame on me. I've got to tell you. I go from Keith Oberman over to FOX back to Chris Matthews back to FOX. And it's so interesting how there are two entirely different perceptions of what is going on in the United States. Two different... It's as though there are two entirely different people living in the United States... groups, camps.

For those of you who had absolute faith and trust in the previous election shall we say, you may say: What happened to that trust? What happened to that faith? What indeed has happened? Many people lost their trust and their faith and didn't go to vote. It's that simple. Voter turnout was down significantly. People in the middle moved right, that's all. Both parties, both groups of people believe they hold the answer and they trust in that and they want to believe in that. 

So we have two people with absolutely diametrically opposed belief systems... thinking God loves only them and therefore, they're right. What I'm going to ask all of you to do is watch and see... watch and see, my friends, two years and see what happens. Just watch and see what happens. You might be surprised. 

For instance, I was talking to a lady I know the other day before I left Mexico. And she said to me: Hansie, it appears I'm going to lose my job. I've been here for 31 years. I'm not trained to do anything else. I don't know anything else. She said: I've lost my trust in Spirit because this is not what I had planned. So I've known her long enough... She lives in the midwest... I've known her long enough to say to her: Margaret, what makes you think anything is wrong? She said: Because I trusted it and I believed that I would have this job until I couldn't work any longer.

And I said to her: Do you remember our last conversation? When you said to me: The only thing, Hansie, I regret is that I didn't follow this dream that I had to do this thing. I said: Yes, I remember that thing. She said: That's the only thing I regret. If I could, I would've changed that. If I could, I would have changed that. Well, Spirit heard that as: I wish I could change that. And so I said to her again: What makes you think that anything is wrong? She's still struggling with that.

If you have trust, sheer trust, just absolute trust and belief that Spirit will get you through, that Spirit does know who you are. If you have absolutely trust and faith that Spirit is leading you in the right direction, even though, in your perceptions, something has happened. For all of you who love me, I love you back. But I watched the questions throughout the last 8 months or however long we've been being with you, and you can see how we all struggle with trust and belief. 

Because we wouldn't ask the questions we ask if we trusted in Spirit. We would know that no matter what presents itself as truth is only truth if it is truth. Because we have a perception that Spirit sometimes must alter, do we ever stop and say: Well, I wonder where this road is going to lead me? Or do we automatically replace trust with fear? 

So, again, when everything is going well, oh we trust, we believe... But, when something goes awry fear comes in, then doubt comes in, then the shadows come in, then the worry, the fear, the guilt, the what-if's. All the things that don't happen... that don't happen. But we start adding energy and adding power to that possibility. And that's when we begin to fail ourselves. We can never fail Spirit because Spirit does not judge us. But we, when we lose our trust and our absolute faith...

I had an opportunity to be at Agape about a month ago... Agape University, Reverend Michael Beckwith. And Reverend Michael was talking about what happens when we lose our faith. What happens is the mind comes in with its old set of tapes and it begins to run those tapes and those tapes begin to attract doubt and fear and panic... and the what-if's. The what-if's become bigger and bigger and bigger. None of which are true, mind you. None of this is true. It came out of a perception that because something didn't go "this way", it's automatically going to go "that way".

I talked to a gentleman the other day, down in Mexico on the beach, and he said to me... We were talking about something and I said: Well what you have changed? He said: Well I would have done this a lot earlier. He said: I spent all those years, all those years working and paying bills and paying debt and trying to accumulate some money... trying to get some stocks, some bonds, trying to protect my family and here I am at 55 wiped out. After all I did... all I did. All the commuting, all the tuition, all the stuff I did. My wife is gone. All I did was wiped out because I had faith and I believed that's where I should go. He said: Next time I'm going to put my faith in myself and not in someone or something else. 

Folks, put your faith in yourself and you'll never, ever go wrong. Fear, you've heard me say for half a century now, fear is the greatest enemy we ever have. Remember, we have nothing to fear but fear itself. I hope they speak those words at my memorial. I hate to steal that from Franklin. But fear drives us to do things, fear drives us to say things, fear motivates us to become less than who we actually are. 

And when you go to that mirror... I received a letter from a lady, an email... I guess letters are out of the question anymore... an email from a lady the other day and she said: For the first time I finally heard you. She said: I've had your "Stop Searching and Start Living".  She said: I've had "You Are Enough". I've got all these things. She said: I finally went to the mirror and did what you said and she said: I couldn't tell myself "I loved myself". She said: That's when I knew that I had been governed by my subconscious and my fear all of my life. And she's 50 years old.

She said: But I worked on it and I worked on it and I worked on it. And she said: Finally when I could say: And I love you very much and I'm going to take care of you and no one is ever going to harm you again. Which of course is speaking to your fear. She said: It was like this flash of light went through the room. She said: Everything started moving and there was energy flowing and color and Boom! it stopped suddenly. And she said: I felt like this giant weight had just been lifted off me and thrown away.

That's what happens when you let go of fear and no matter life presents you with, you have absolute faith. Know how much much the Spirit loves you when you love yourself and you believe in you and you believe in Them.

And that will conclude the lesson for this evening.

Topic: The Pain of Lost Expectations
June 6, 2015





ALFRED:
Hello everyone and welcome to GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE - Wisdom for Your Soul. This is Alfred, the Padawan to the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King. He's going to be joining us in a few seconds, but first the housekeeping. I want to say Thank You All – every one of you has been sharing what we do on Facebook. We're ever so grateful for when you do SHARE what we do with your friends. And by telling them that you believe in us, you help us reach out and help others. We don't do any traditional advertising, so thank you very much for helping us get the world out.

And of course, if you haven't seen already on Facebook, we have our “Random Acts of Kindness Contest”. If you do SHARE what we do or if you RT (Re-tweet), then we will randomly pick people to get all kinds of goodies - Audio Lessons, Classes, and other kinds of wonderful stuff. We love to keep the positive karma going. So no expectations, but we may pick you if you happen to help SHARE or RT (Re-tweet) what we're doing out in social media.

And for today's topic "The Pain of Lost Expectations". So without further ado, I present the Modern Day Mystic himself, Hans Christian King.

HANS:
Hello everyone. Welcome to the show. Alfred, can I participate in that Contest on Facebook?

ALFRED:
Absolutely Hans, if you'd like to win your own products.

HANS:
(Laughing) Well that might be nice. I could give them to somebody else. You know folks, throughout my lifetime in service, there is one recurring theme that is extremely painful for a lot of people. If you listen, everyone, to the questions that people send in, there sort of is a theme. Now what is that theme?  A lost expectation. 

How do we get to lost expectations? In our humanness, we, from time to time, have a strong feeling in our heart or in our mind that we should know this person or we should move to this place or we should be doing this kind of a job or we should be doing this service work of some kind... And oftentimes, the expectation isn't met.

Let's go to relationships folks. A lot of people will say to me: But Hans I knew it in my heart. Let's talk about the gals first, then we'll talk about the guys. Gals, a lot of times you see somebody, and there's this thug that comes in the chest and you just feel that you know this person, you just feel you want to have something to do with this person, even perhaps become lovers and partners. And this is very strong, and this is POW! It just hits you so hard. But nothing happens. And the person is very nice to you. They talk to you about their partner or what they're doing, but you don't see a lean in towards a relationship. 

What is happened there is, most likely, you have met someone from a previous lifetime. So it isn't just the mind and the heart, the soul recognizes that person. And when the soul recognizes that person, it hones right in, and says: Oh, there's my old friend; Oh, there's my old husband, my old wife... Okay? But what you're doing is, what you've heard me refer to before as "soul crossing". Where you just go by each other to say hello and to be remembered. 

But the humaneness of you sets an expectation. And when the humanness of you sets an expectation, because you believe, you tell God you would like a response to your expectation. Even if God, the Spirit, is trying to say to you: Just passing by.  You don't want to hear that, you don't want to know that, you don't want to project into this. Because you "know", because you have this "feeling". So this feeling of "I know that person and I know I'm going to be with that person"... A lot of the times comes out of a need to be loved. It comes out of a need to be "seen", a need to be "accepted", a need to be someone's "everything". Even though it isn't to be, for you. 

I cannot tell you how many people Spirit and I counsel a week just listening to people talk about they know that this person is to be in their life. And sometimes, no matter what I say, no matter what I do, they don't want to hear it. You might check around yourself, see if there's some things in here that you might be holding onto with expectations that you may want to say: Is this causing me pain? 

Alfred, what do you say on this? I always like to bring Alfred in when it's like a deer in the headlight moment...

ALFRED:
Expectations are a very difficult spiritual lesson. Yet, this lesson can have really profound results...

HANS:
Absolutely.

Alfred:
… in terms of your peace and happiness. Expectation is the mind's view of what should happen, the outcome, in the future. So what you're looking at is getting your humanness, your mind chatter involved as to what it thinks the future should be. Spirituality as we all know is surrendering the future, being in the moment, and letting go of those things that we desire, or our mind chatter tells us we “should” have. And that's where we get ourselves in trouble is when our mind sets us up to expect something in our life and it doesn't happen. The mind has a really hard time understanding: Well, why didn't this happen?

HANS:
Exactly. And oftentimes Alfred, I'm sure you've found, like I have, that the mind often blames the Spirit or blames God. Why didn't God do this for me? Why didn't God give me this? This is what I wanted. I knew it would happen. And we kind of get ourself into a belief trauma as well.

ALFRED:
Yes, and a lot of spirituality is about surrendering. It's about being peaceful and happy in the moment, about being grateful for what you have, realizing that your glass is half full. Having an expectation is that my glass is going to be completely full, or it's going to be more full than it already is. The opposite is: No, I'm peaceful and grateful where I am in the moment.

HANS:
Very good, thank you Alfred. That's the key right there - being peaceful in the moment. Not setting an expectation. Folks, do you think the Spirit doesn't know what's in your heart? Do you think They don't know your longing, your needs, your desires? Of course They do. But They also know your plan. They have a carbon copy of your dharma. They know where you're supposed to be and who you're supposed to be with. But in the game of life, as we see it, people come by us, who we recognize and we think: Oh, there's my soul mate.

Now let's go away from relationships for a minute and let's go to expectations regarding things that you would like to have in your life - a new house, a new car, a new job... Let's go to job. A lot of times we set our expectations for a new position. If we don't have a job, we set our expectations for a job. But when we do that, we also fantasize into it about how it needs to look so we can be okay with it. Rather than say: I'm available for that perfect job that is for me at this time. Not tomorrow, not next week, at this time. Thank you for bringing the doors for this to me.

We set our statement, and then we add all of these little subtleties to it. And before you know it, what was just getting you a maintenance job for the moment, has turned into this life-long dream of yours to be this or to do that. So, lost expectations come about when we set them. So the expectation happens when we say... Rather than say: I would like the feeling and I would like the awareness of this particular thing... and I would enjoy seeing how this might be in my life and letting it go... and I would say: to my highest good always. 

So They get it. They hear where you're coming from. You're not saying you're going to be less than if it doesn't happen. You're already enough as you are right now. You don't need anything whatsoever. You might like the experience of something. And as Alfred would throw in: And here's how I would like to feel in the experience. That's how you set, what we call today, expectations. Where we don't say: And I want it to show up this way, and I need for this person to love me, and I need this particular job... and all these things that we do in our humanness. They're roadblocks. Somebody wrote, Alfred, I don't know who, but they said: "Expectations are limitations". You remember that?

ALFRED:
Expectations are a limitation because it is something that your mind chatter created. It's part of ego, maybe it's something that you saw on television, maybe it's something that your parents told you you deserved, maybe you're trying to live up to the Jones or your friends, and unknowingly you set an expectation of "this is what I want in my live" and it becomes a limitation because everything else that comes across that doesn't look like what your mind is telling you you should have, is now instantly dismissed. However, how do you know what is being presented to you isn't for your highest good? A person that may not meet all of your items on your list may be your soul mate.

HANS:
Yes.

ALFRED:
However, you have an expectation written down in your list of what your soul mate should look like and the Other Side presents you with your soul mate and you dismiss that person. So having an expectation, having an opinion, a judgment of what should be in your life and what it should look like, is an absolute limitation because then you are dismissing, without even a consideration, those things that Spirit presents to you.

HANS:
Folks, sometimes when we set our agenda, we sort of say to Spirit, taking off on what Alfred was just talking about: And this is how I want it to look, and this is how I want it to arrive. If you have perfect faith, if you believe, then you tell the Spirit what you would like the experience of and that's it... and how you would like to feel. Those two things. I think two-thirds of all the questions that come into this Radio Show are from lost expectations. If you go back and you listen to all the Shows... My gosh Alfred, how many shows have we done now? Quite a few...

Alfred:
Four years... about four years.

HANS:
Well that's almost 200 shows. And many of you are the ones who are in the pain of the lost expectation. Folks, I'm not saying it isn't painful. But what you don't realize is why would you want someone who doesn't want you? Why would you do that to yourself? Why would you put yourself in that position? And I hear people say all the time: Oh, I knew that they were for me. I knew it. It's their fault. They're not living up to what they're supposed to do. And very rarely, but it does happen, that's true. But Spirit always has a contingency for a contingency for every contingency.

So if you're supposed to be loved at a certain level, you will be. It may not be by this person. But they bring another person in and you'll say: Oh, I'm so glad that I didn't get first person because this person really works wonderful for me. Letting go of expectations regarding parents... This is the tough one folks. When you let go of the pain and the expectations of the parents, your life gets so much easier. Does it not Alfred?

ALFRED:
It really does because then you stop putting energy towards something that might happen in the future. That's number one is you think that thing in the future will actually fix you. If this happens, then I'll be happier, if this person comes into my life, I'll be better. And the reality is, by letting go of anything that has to do with the future, the past, as we all know also, helps you become more peaceful and happy and blissful and joyful in the moment. Expectations are a reflection of what's happened in our past and projects us out into our future which takes us away from being grateful in the moment. So again, it's a huge step towards your spiritual growth to let go of expectations in order for you to be grateful and peaceful in the moment.

HANS:
Folks, many of you run on a time constraint. Oh, I'm getting old... oh, if I get much older I can't have children... will she still want me when I get to be 50? We run under this fear umbrella of we're running out of time. Folks, there is no time. Oftentimes when the Spirit speaks to you, They say something, They're saying that person will be in your life, probably coming up next lifetime. Not always this one. So letting yourself simply learn to "be" with “no expectations”. I'm here in this moment, this is the experience I would like to have, I give it to you to do for me to my highest good, and bring those doors to me. Then you're saying: I trust you. I know that this pain in my heart really is self induced. 

And one thing in lost expectations, children, never, ever, ever, become a victim or make the other person a villain. I know clients who have made other people villains in their life only because they didn't live up to this person or that person's expectation of how that person would be. So they pre-set the expectation of how it had to be. But the other person wasn't at that spot. But that doesn't make any difference. Because these people say: Oh, but I knew it was for me, there was no doubt it was for me, and I'm coming to stick this out.

One of the biggest things that people do is when they fall in love with married people, or committed people. I know she's for me... I know he's for me... and I know they're going to leave that person... and I know they're going to be with me. What you are picking up is your experience of that person from a previous lifetime and you get confused about this. If a person is in a relationship, you need to honor that and walk away - period. Under almost any circumstance. If that relationship is to be, it will show up somewhere down the road with you having absolutely no expectations and nothing to do with it. Okay?

Now, as you go through your life, there are going to be moments when you see someone or something you would really, really like the experience of. Sit down, be quiet, and say to Spirit: I don't know if this situation or this person is for me. But I am available if they are. I'm available to my highest good. Please show me where I need to be with this issue and drop it. Make yourself, of course, available in your heart. But have no expectation of how it has to happen, how it has to show up. 

I know a person, a couple of months ago, who met a person on an airplane. And they struck up a conversation and he was a married person and this girl felt she knew him and she started running all the fantasies and what have you... She drove herself to the point where she had to go to the hospital in a panic attack because he had not called her, when he never said he would. But she knew it, in her heart, that he was going to call. This is what I'm talking about when we disturb our peace, when we disturb our ease. Okay? 

So having a quiet awareness that where you... Folks, why do you think Alfred and I talk so much about being in the now? Making this moment right now all there is. I am enough. Why do you think we do that? Because it's only the mind that brings attachments to the peace. The heart doesn't have to. Only the mind disturbs the peace. The heart never does. So when we learn: Oh, I got to feel something, isn't that wonderful, I'm still alive...

The other day Alfred and I were walking somewhere and the wind was whistling and Alfred's dressed up looking like a polar bear, you can't even see his face with the hoodie he's got on,  and I'm in a T-shirt. And he said something and I said under my breath: Yes, but at least I have feelings. I can feel it. Isn't that wonderful? Feeling the cold wind on your face, feeling the Caribbean sand in your feet, feeling a smile on your face when you see a puppy... Those are the things folks, that are important.

So the greatest gift you give yourself is to stop expectations and replace them with a knowing and an understanding that Spirit is here for you. They know what isupposed to be for you. Let Them do their work and many times their work does not show up in your expectation. Alfred, what did Mick Jagger say in that song? You don't always get what you want...

ALFRED:
… but if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need.

HANS:
There is a metaphysical statement if ever there was one. So where you already are, right now folks, is perfect. Have you ever noticed everyone that no matter how bad things seem to get, somehow you always get through? No matter how broke you are, no matter how poor you may be in a moment, somehow, something happens and you get through? Have you ever noticed that when you've had a relationship you think it's your end-all, be-all, and this person says: I'm sorry it doesn't work for me. Your heart is broken, it's shattered and on the floor. A year later you wonder what you ever saw in the person because you're with somebody else. 


Just being peaceful, in the moment, will bring to you all the lessons you need to learn. So less expectations is less pain. Alfred, I think that will conclude the lesson for today.
