Topic:  Mind Chatter Is Not Reality
August 2, 2014




Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to MODERN DAY MYSTICISM being broadcast on the World Puja Network. Tonight's topic is "Mind Chatter Is Not Reality" and without further ado I present to you Hans Christian King.

Hans:
Good evening everyone. I hope that you can hear Alfred a little better than I can tonight. The volume seems a little low. I thought I'd let him know that... Alfred opened with "Mind Chatter Is Not Reality". Well then, what is mind chatter? This is a question I posed to Spirit just before the show. And the answer came back: Just a collection of thoughts you've come to believe are real and true. Isn't that interesting? Just a collection of thoughts...that were put in your head by your own head. Your own mind put those thoughts in there. And after years and years and years of putting those thoughts in there, they actually form a life of their own and they create a character. And the character has opinions and ideas and different kinds of thoughts. But they all originate out of the same pond and the pond is a pond of fear. You notice...you've heard me say throughout the years that the mind chatter doesn't tell you how wonderful you are everyday...well for most of you it doesn't. It doesn't tell you you're fine. It doesn't tell you everything's okay. Everything's going to be great. Don't worry, we've got this all under control - you're perfect, you're loved, and I'm going to take care of you. It doesn't say that does it? No, it keeps running that "collection of thoughts". And what it does is it runs different variations of the same thought, theme throughout your life. And so we get stuck in the perception of fear, we get stuck in the perception of lack, and we begin to actually believe that what the mind chatter is saying not only is possible, but it's truth. So actually our mind chatter is very busy growing us away from the Spirit. If you believe...if you have perfect faith, you've heard me say throughout the years: if you had perfect faith you'd never have a negative thought. Because Spirit and God do not operate anywhere close to a negative thought. They are only in the possibility of the “now”, only in the place of “love”, “acceptance”, “non-judgment”. Nowhere, nowhere does the heart-mind tell you these things. Only the head, only the conglomeration of experiences and thoughts and ideas that have come to form its own consciousness, its own life. It will tell you you're not sufficient, it will tell you you're not enough, it will tell you to live in fear, it will tell you you won't have enough money.  And since we know that energy follows thought always, we actually begin to believe the dysfunction of the mind chatter and we start giving it power. Oh, I need to be concerned about this, or oh, I need to worry about that, oh, here's that worry again there must be something to it if I'm fearful of it. Rather than say each day: Gee, I wonder what's in life for me today? What wonder can I find? What teaching can I practice? What beauty can I see? Are there bulbs coming up in my garden? Is the tree down the street coming out in bloom? Look at those clouds going by. All of these things that you can see, hear and feel from the heart are free. So how do we grow our consciousness away from Spirit? We don't let Spirit in. It's actually that simple. As you know, I like to invite Alfred to come in with another point of view on this issue and I hate to surprise Alfred when I do this... Alfred anything on this issue of how we grow our consciousness away from the Spirit?

Alfred:
I think this is part...the very first part of actualization. This is the very first part of waking up is that you realize you have grown yourself away from Spirit and you're considering starting the journey towards Spirit. You're starting the journey away from the mind, away from the body, towards your soul. And this is the very first step to realize that what is in your mind, your thoughts, are really are not true. And this is the first step to go out there and try to figure out: Well, if the thoughts in my head are not true, then what is? 


Hans:
Very true...very true. And when we learn to understand that we can actually replace all of this negative thinking with a form of positive thinking... Alfred always talks about the glass being half full.  When we learn that we can actually change the direction of the mind chatter from being a villain to being a friend...in a very short period of time. How do we allow perception to change who we think we are or actually should be? Most people, I have found, have a rather dismal opinion of themselves and who they actually are. They've so begun to believe what the mind chatter says is real that they have lost...actually lost their own perception of who they are. And so you find many people saying: I need to know who I am. I want to find out who I am. I want to return to me. Well nothing could be simpler - just be. Yes, you may not have a whole bunch of experience in that closet of just learning to be, however if you stand still and you believe - everything that you need will be brought to you...everything. There will be no more fears, there will be  no more doubts, there will simply be you “being who you actually are”. And even if in that moment you perceive "nothing", if you have learned to cool the mind chatter down, Spirit will begin to fill your heart with wonderful, wonderful concepts, new ideas. Alfred what do you think how we allow perception to change who we think we are? 

Alfred:
Well unfortunately when we're growing up we're taught that the way you perceive things, the way your parents perceive things, the way your friends perceive things, the way the people you respect perceive things is truth.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
And we're taught to just accept that to be truth without challenging it. And it is during actualization, it is during our soul searching, that we realize that it's not true that people's perceptions are truth. It's just their opinion.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
But we're not taught this from a young age. We're really only taught this when you seek the truth and the truth is that your individual life no one knows, no one can perceive, no one can have an opinion about because each of us is an individual divine soul on an individual divine path.

Hans:
Absolutely.

Alfred:
And that's when you realize other people's perceptions...no matter how much you respect them, may not be true for you.

Hans:
I think that's why we say, and what we try to teach, Alfred, “that what someone thinks of you is really none of your concern". Mind chatter comes from many, many places. We talked a little bit about other people's opinions, family and friends. Since we have no other reference in the human form in the beginning of the forming of our individual psyche here on earth, we come to believe that what others say must be true. I remember some years ago, I knew this wonderful lady and she loved to read newspapers and I said to her: Why do you love to read the newspapers? And she said: Because that's where the truth is. And that dear lady believed that. It wasn't my job to change her opinion. But I realized that she actually believed other people's opinions, which is what a newspaper usually is   unless it's actual news, were more important to her than her own opinions. Alfred has pointed out on several occasions that we tend to follow the family line. That if our family doesn't like this person, we don't like them, if our family has this sort of an idea about certain things and certain people, we follow that. So this is why I think the Spirit said that: Mind chatter is a collection of individual thoughts that have formed an identity in your mind. We allow things like the media, the television, the radio, newspapers and magazines to interfere with our own rational thinking. We, as a nation, have been led down the road on many issues during the last 10 years. These issues have cost us great treasure for our nation, and worst than that, great treasure with the loss of our young people. Because we were told "this was so". And now we're being told "well perhaps it wasn't quite as true as we were led to believe". Always listen to your heart in matters of the media. Always listen to our heart. I find that Alfred gets rather indignant from time to time...

Alfred:
I don't know what you're talking about...

Hans:
(Laughing) ...when he perceives he's being handed a line of bull from the television set and he gets very...may I say vocal? Is that what you get Alfred?

Alfred:
Indignant.

Hans:
Indignant. Because he can hear the lie. He can hear it.

Alfred:
I don't think it's more than "hear", it's just that you "feel" it's not...

Hans:
Well that's the way you "hear".

Alfred:
Um hmm.

Hans:
You've often heard me talk about in our Intuitive Development Class - it isn't just the ears that we use to hear, it comes as a knowing and Alfred that's why you yell. You know it isn't so. There are certain events that occur in our life and when those events occur we have a built in defense mechanism. But we're defending something that just isn't real but we don't know that. I'm just as guilty of that as others. Aren't I Alfred?

Alfred:
No.

Hans:
No?

Alfred:
Not always. On rare occasion...

Hans:
On very rare occasion. It's hard guys and gals. It's hard being in human form. Anybody who told you this was easy was lying to you. Because we don't fit here very well. It's a school. You know it's like this - remember though the years I've said to you that when you take a class and you go to a class are you the class? Is the classroom you? Or are you there to simply there to observe, grow your opinion and move on? Well that's the same here. You and I and Alfred have taken many classes in which we've said: this is a bunch of bunk. Doesn't feel right to me. Just doesn’t feel right. So what I hope you will all learn from this this evening is that the mind chatter often appears as a friend, it often appears as though it's going to help you, it's going to protect you. That's why we say events in our lives...we often want to protect ourselves from something that actually isn't occurring, has not occurred, and is not going to occur. But we've built up all of this - what somebody may have said, what our boss may be thinking, what our mother said inference to, or our father this - and we build up all of this nonsense. I saw something on television the other day that I thought was rather remarkable. And they have found the single largest reason for divorces, and they were just doing it in this country, is lost expectations. Think about that for a minute. People are mad at other people because other people didn't live up to an expectation that we had. Isn't that amazing? Well you should have known, well why don't you care...all of this stuff - the mind chatter made up. That's why you'll often hear someone say: Well don't you know I love you? Because the mind chatter has been so busy saying: look at this it's been 2 weeks I haven't had flowers, or look at this if she loved me she would have had dinner ready. All these nonsensical things that we have built up tear our relationships down. Lost expectations. People not living up to ideas, thoughts, that we put in place without ever telling them in the first place. That's why the silly response of: well don't you know I love you? Kind of silly. Folks, we unknowingly choose to bring past events into the present. What is this that we have about pulling up nonsense from last year, from 5 years ago,  from 10 years ago, from 25, 30, 40 years ago to prove a point from our mind chatter? I'll show you by golly why you didn't love me because in 1998 you didn't get me a birthday card. Sounds silly doesn't it? It's not. Our mind chatter can justify any thought we have by saying: here, I'll prove it to you. Someone doesn't call. You had an expectation that your boss would give you a raise and the boss didn't give you a raise, he gave so-and-so a raise. Boss is no good. We keep pulling pain out of our history to justify the moments in our life. And I believe that if you sit down for a moment and you say: From this day forward I am going to do nothing else, think nothing else, and just being me. I'm going to love and appreciate my job, I'm going to love and appreciate my being single for now, I'm going to love and appreciate being married or being partnered for now, my home is enough for now... Surround yourself with "enoughness". What happens when you do that, the perceptions change your consciousness. It's just that simple. You hear that? The perceptions change your consciousness. And it works in the reverse. The old perceptions that you have change your consciousness from Spirit and love to being a victim, fearful, in pain, stressed and ill. I can't tell you how many times dear people Spirit and I are giving a reading to someone, Skype or on the phone or in person, and the person keeps saying: But I'm sick. And Spirit keeps saying: But I'm sorry you are not sick. And they will argue with it. Well every doctor I've been to tells me I'm not sick. But I know I'm sick. And Spirit will say: Child, your pain and your fear is what you think makes you sick. You have no physical manifestation of being ill. Oh no, I know I'm ill. I don't care what the doctors tell me. I know it. This is one of the things that I'm talking about to you. Sometimes when we're sad, or we feel lonely, or we wish we had a hug, our body reacts to our emotional mind chatter pain. It does it  actually more often than you think. Here, to give you an example: If I get a little sad about something, I immediately get a stomach ache. It's immediate. I'm that connected to that emotion. You see? So when that happens to me, what I say to it is: Oh, I get it. I get it. This is about something that's buried and I need to have a look at this. Waking up every day and saying: Gee, I wonder what this day has in store for me today? I wonder what wonder I can get up to? What will I see today that I have not seen before? All of these things are free. But if you wake up at 2:00 in the morning and your mind chatter is running and you can feel that sweat start and you can feel that adrenaline start, you need to turn to it and say: Oh no, you're not doing this to me again. No, no, no, no. My god loves me. I have nothing to be afraid of. Nothing. I will not be fearful, I'm not going to be in pain, I'm going to be in love and light and that is what is going to happen. When you do that, your life begins to change. And if you do it enough, and the mind chatter has no place of recognition in you, it can go nowhere where you provided a home. Remember little ones - pain and fear can only live in a home that you build. They are not a natural part of the spiritual psyche in you. The body has automatic defense mechanisms for any personal danger that may be coming your way and it will defend itself. That's not the pain and fear I'm talking about. I'm talking about the emotional, make-pretend, make-up, hasn't happened, mostly likely will not occur...fear and pain. But if you do this enough, if you keep this up, over and over again, what happens is you actually build a house. And then you fill the house with the pain of your history. And then you legitimize it. And then you get sick. Alfred, in working with people have you found this to be true?

Alfred:
It is really true Hans and what I'd like to emphasize is the absolute importance if you're on a spiritual path, to pay attention to something that seems so basic, so fundamental, yet we have found year after year after year with so many of our clients that these fundamental basics...somewhat simple things are what really tears people's lives apart.

Hans:
Oh Heavens yes.

Alfred:
Tears your life apart. Ruins you for 10, 20, 30, 40 years and for those people who are on a spiritual path this is where you may get the most bang for your buck, the most progress, the huge steps forward, are by looking at simple things such as perception, opinion. And that’s why Hans is constantly talking about this. As he's taught me and told me story after story of by simply changing and recognizing...but first and foremost, recognizing - that's what tonight is about, we'll get to changing later. Recognizing what is not reality...

Hans:
That's very true Alfred.

Alfred:
That is so important.

Hans:
Alfred, have you every noticed that when we stand back for a second and have a look, have a listen to our mind chatter, we become rather amazed?

Alfred:
And that's the first step. That's all we're going to teach you is to first of all - to recognize it. To take a step back. To look at it and say: Hmm, that's something I may need to take a look at. And that's part of your spiritual path. That's why in spirituality we always talk about going inward. It's an inward journey and we're trying to help you recognize what is one of those things that you should be going inward and looking at.

Hans:
Yes. You know Alfred mind chatter is a part of being human and being human happens to everyone. But what we're trying to teach you is that you're actually the baby angel in the human form. Again the referencing, if I put on a coat do I become a coat, you see? So once you understand that the body, the circumstances in your life all were chose by you in the first place...all the lessons that you're learning were chosen by you. Once you begin to understand that: Oh listen, I'm in control of this, not my mind chatter. I'm in control of this. I am my best friend. I love myself and I'm not going to allow my mind chatter...what is it that I teach in the class - picture yourself in the front row of a live theater and picture your mind chatter on stage and watch it. You can literally place your mind chatter up there and watch it. Watch how it runs. Get a series of little pieces of paper and write different things down on them relating to your life and then hold one up and watch the mind chatter go. You really will be amazed at how funny it all is. We actually have justification for our crazies. When we made up the crazies. People will say: Oh no, my mother told me... When did she tell you that? About 20 years ago. Excuse me? So mind chatter is a part of being on this planet. However, mind chatter is the self destruct force. You can operate this body and control the mind chatter through love, non-judgment, learning the I AM principle. And Alfred do you have anything to contribute before I close the lesson for the night?

Alfred:
It really is almost hilarious that no matter how spiritual you get, no matter how advanced you think you are, you wind up finding perceptions and opinions that were so far buried that do actually change how you feel, how you act, how you behave. And what I realized through the years that even though this is a basic lesson, even though this is one of the very first steps in searching, even though this is one of the very first things you do in the actualization process, the deeper you go inward, the more of this you find. I think it's the old onion layer process. You can't get to the layer under a layer until you peel back a layer.

Hans:
That's right.

Alfred:
And that's the interesting part about mind chatter is some of it can be so thin, such a thin veil that you hardly even recognize it. And that's the trick about it. Some of it's very obvious and you have huge steps forward. Other times you find the thinnest specks of dust hiding in a tiny corner...

Hans:
That's absolutely true.

Alfred:
It is those...

Hans:
It's the dust that gets you Alfred.

Hans:
It's the dust.

Hans:
(Laughing) I used to talk to Alfred about the dust and he'd say: What are you talking about? I'd say: Spirit found some dust. And he used to get so mad.

Alfred:
And that's one of the things I'd like to close on is no matter how advanced spiritually you think you are, it could be a perception that changes the way you feel, or act, or how you speak, something that's buried so deep that it actually takes a very advanced spiritual person to dig out and recognize. Something just to pay attention to. Because they always get me.

Hans:

Oh yeah. And I think Alfred that will conclude the lesson for this evening.

Topic:  The Power of Prayer
July 26, 2014




Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to MODERN DAY MYSTICISM with Hans Christian King. We actually have changed the topic for tonight. The topic for tonight is "The Power of Prayer" and I'm glad to present to you the Modern Day Mystic himself Hans Christian King.

Hans:
Good evening everyone! Thank you for being patient with us. We are in the process of a move and it was just a necessity to move the show to tonight. We're happy to see so many new people who are joining us tonight. Alfred, where are some of those new people from? Does it say on your computer?

Alfred:
We're getting people from all over the world Hans. 

Hans:
Really? Excellent. Well, welcome everybody. Tonight's subject is "The Power of Prayer". You know my friends, from early days, almost all societies teach their children to pray. I believe that prayer is a direct intention to be with Spirit. And I believe that prayer, in and of itself, sort of proves to you that you believe there is something there to pray “to”. In other words there's a consciousness on the other end of your prayer, if you will. And this affords you an opportunity to tell Them what you would the experience of. You know for years I've been trying to change the way people pray. And I've always said: Don't tell Them what you want,  because you're not really certain of what you want. But you can say: I would like the experience of the following please. I had a lady ask me a question the other day at a lecture that I was doing and she said: Hans, how do I pray? How do we pray? You start with the intention to believe there is something or someone, a force of some  kind, listening on the Other Side. You know, because we are Spirit in human form, we are actually speaking to Our Source, Our Base - where we come "from". So that we believe, without necessarily sitting around asking ourself if we believe. When we pray, we're saying to Spirit: I believe that you are there. I believe that you are listening to me, you hear me, I believe that you can facilitate my experiences in life, and I trust and believe you. 

Almost all, as I said earlier, all religions drum into us “The Power of Prayer”. Behind “The Power of Prayer” is the direct intention to be with Spirit. And when that happens, the Spirit lights up. Because They see us returning home. They see us wanting to walk with Them. What Spirit is concerned about, in prayer, is that we should be walking and living in the prayer all day, every day that we are conscious because we are when we sleep. So knowing that we go to Spirit when we have needs is a little bit off-putting to Spirit. They love us unconditionally. But it seems to Them that most of the time we only need Them when we lose control of the outcome of an aspect of our life. Rather than being with Spirit as an on-going thank you - this is what I'm wanting the experience of, thank you this is what I'm looking for, thank you. And then walking just like a chipmunk inside of a glass ball just walking down the road in total belief the ball will move and it does. 
We balance, or attempt to balance, our mind chatter with our spiritual self. And it doesn't work. We always return to Spirit for the knowledge, for the wisdom. We always return to Spirit when all else fails. 

I personally think, and I know Spirit feels this way, that people don't quite understand that it's a "partnership". Not a place to go on Sunday, or on Saturday, or on Friday. God is not found in a Church. God is brought to the Church with the intention of the people. Learning to shift your perception so that you just don't pray when things are at their darkest, but that you have a faith and a belief and a quiet knowing that at all times the Spirit is you - you are the Spirit - it is in you - you are connected to the Source - at all times. You know my hero Yoda spoke of this. It surrounds us. I was watching the Stephen Hawking special on Discovery and I found it interesting that Yoda spoke of the Force as an enlightened thing. That it surrounds us, it permeates all things, it is part of us, we are part of the Force. But Science, in its bizarre understanding, of something that they never knew was there all the time, has named it the Dark Force rather than the Light Force. I find that interesting folks. "The Power of Prayer" always leads us back home again. It's like calling your parents to see if you're still loved. It's like checking with Grandma to see if she still loves you. Prayer should be a living space between you and Spirit "at all times". Not a special event...not a special event that we visit when we're needy. But that we live in it at all times because "we believe". Prayer is wonderful. But prayer in and of itself will not do much for you if you are not in your space. In other words, if you're using prayer as an external means of fixing a human problem that you have created...probably that's not the way to go. When you learn to walk with Spirit on a daily basis, when you learn to make your decisions with Spirit, there's no need for prayer. There can be a Thank You Prayer. Thank you always, thank you for being there for me, thank you for guiding me. Ask yourself this question children. Do you only turn to Spirit at the darkest of times? Or do you so believe in the Universe and in “The Power of Prayer”, the power of you, the power of God, the power of Spirit, that you are the prayer at all times? You are the miracle at all times. My friend Judy T. used to have a card on her license plate that said: You Miracle. You are the miracle you are seeking in life. You are the answer you are seeking in life. You are your own best friend. And Spirit resides within you. We are Spirit in the human form. It is the human frailty of our consciousness that separates us from our Godforce at all times. The Spirit never separates itself from us - Ever. We, on the other hand, continue to separate us from Spirit. And I remember, as a child, I would pray extra-hard for something and Spirit would say to me: Why are you praying so hard? Do you think that we don't hear you? That's your mind trying to justify a need that you have to see if we're still there. We are always there, at all times, in all conditions, in all circumstances. 

"The Power of Prayer" when directed correctly puts us directly in the path of spiritual energy that helps guide us at all times. What I would like to see you do is once you connect with the Spirit at that level of positive prayer, to hold it, don't let the mind chatter re-enter your life, start all the confusion all over again, separate yourself from your Source and then you run away whining and say: I don't feel that the Source hears me. I don't feel part of the Source. Why? Because you disconnected yourself from the Source. It's that simple, my friends. So "being" the Source, "being" the Spirit in the human form, understanding that prayer simply reinforces that connection, that you're not just seeking an answer at a desperate moment, but you walk in that truth, you walk in that faith - "at all times". Hearing the Spirit through your own thinking. I was talking to someone, a little while ago, and they said because they didn't follow their thinking they got themselves in trouble. Well thinking with a spiritual imprint that they could feel the Spirit move but they used their own mind chatter to interfere with their truth. Folks, I say to you now and forever - you are never absent from the power of God - ever, not ever. It isn't that you pray and you get a Godly return, thought. The Godly Force, the Spirit Force is in and around you at all times but your mind is so busy disconnecting you from that beauty from that Source. 

You want to pray for something? Pray to yourself to stop the mind chatter. Because once you stop the mind chatter, your life flows "naturally". Because you are in the Spirit, you just flow beautifully with the Spirit at all times. I will probably be known, when I'm long gone from this plane - he tried to help them shift their consciousness. If I could just help you long enough to help you to see what you do through your own mind chatter to yourself - that would be all I need before I leave the planet. Because once you connect with that awareness, everything in your life begins to fall in place. Remember your mind, and this is hard for a lot of people to understand because it's so simple, your mind is literally creating your life at every single moment that you are awake. Everything that is coming towards you is being created out of your own consciousness. Your mind shifts your perception. One person can look at a dandelion in a beautiful lawn and say: Oh, there's a weed. And another person can look at the dandelion and say:Talk about surviving. Look at that beautiful flower in that lawn. How did it do that? Because it had determination and belief that's how. All of us have been walking down the street somewhere and seen a flower growing out of a crack between a sidewalk and a building...out of what appears to be absolutely nothing growing out of the crack. That's called "belief". And when you believe that you and Spirit are one, when you learn to control the mind chatter, that's You. Spirit speaks to you that you are part of everything that you see. Yoda used it well when he said: You are part of all of this. You are not separate of this. It is the humanness of mankind that has created the human scene.

Now I want to talk for just for a moment folks...I've got a lot of emails over the weekend about the downgrade of the credit rating. It's not going to hurt you. You're going to be fine. But it's a wake up call that our country, the way it's being governed does not work. We do not have the best system in the world. We do not have the best financial system in the world. We are not able to balance our  checkbook. If corporations or you and I worked like the U.S. Federal Government we would be in Bankruptcy Court. And rather than come out after seeing all of this downgrade by Standard & Poor's, which has not always the best record itself folks...do a little research. It should be a wake up call. We should be saying: Okay, let's all get together. Get the President and the Republicans, the Democrats, the Tea Partiers, all the left-wingers and get everybody together and say: What's best for us? What's best for our people? What's best for our nation? Get the best economic minds in the country together and develop a plan. As of today, on TV, everybody starts pointing fingers all over again. Which was the very same thing that Standard and Poor's said was what was pulling us down. That's "mind chatter" children..."mind chatter". Now because things are going on crazy in this world and the storm is blowing and the winds are blowing... Yes, the U.S. is going through a tough time. It's still the largest economy in the world. We're still the most productive people in the world. Okay? We still have a wonderful, wonderful country. It's sick and it needs some medicine. And we may not like the medicine. I remember when Maggie Thatcher had to come to the British people and say: The country's sick and you may not like the medicine but we have to take the medicine. It's called austerity. And that is probably what we're probably going to have to do is downsize our country and our life in order to gain our power back...our personal powers and our country's powers. That's what we're going to have to do. We don't like it. No matter how they flay in the wind and they say all these things, that's what they will wind up doing. I would say to each and every one of you, in your prayer please remember you are not part of what is happening. If you sit in your own space and always simply say to Spirit: I know I am One with Thee. All that I require already "is". Now when you do that, rather than your mind chatter tell you what job you have to have, or that you're unemployed, or you're never going to get through, or my God I'm going to lose my home, what is going to happen? Rather than allow that kind of thinking you sit in a space that says: I know I am loved. I know am being taken care of. I know I am in a perfect space. 

There are many people out there today folks, on this abundance kick. Okay? Try this thing, try something else... I've watched these things and I mentioned this the other night. I've watched these things for my entire life. But there is only one simple truth - If you want prosperity - "Be It". That is all the power that you need. Many people need an external force to give them permission to "be". When you pray to Spirit, don't ask Them for anything. Just say: I'd like the experience of this if this if for me. Thank you for the abundance that keeps me going day by day. No matter what it looks like I know I am loved, I know I'm  taken care of - at all times. 

There is an island in the Caribbean that is in the direct path of most of the major hurricanes that come through. There is a parrot on that island that has survived for thousands and thousands of years. But nobody knows "how" it survives when the hurricanes come. Because the trees are completely stripped, things are pulled out, there's no hiding, there's no caves, there's no nothing...but after the hurricane goes through and the island is naked, the parrot is still there surviving and has survival skills when there isn't a branch that has a leaf on it or any food. How does the parrot do that? It's very simple - because it never knew it couldn't. 

And when you understand there's no way you cannot be loved, there is no way you cannot be Spirit, there is no way God is an external force that you have to run to with a prayer book. No, no. "You are the answer you are seeking." At all times, children. You're not separate from the power of God. If you understand that prayer is a wonderful acknowledge of your place in Spirit...that when you pray every morning, every evening, whenever you pray, you're just simply affirming the wonderfulness of all that you already are. The experiences that you choose are entirely different issues. Somebody said to me: Well, I'm losing my house, my job, my car, my husband left me... What should I believe in? I said: You. Those are external things. Those come and go. Houses come and go. Husbands come and go. Children always leave. But you, your consciousness, your Spirit always is, always has been, will forever be Spirit in human form having a human experience. 

For instance, let's say the young lady wishes to be a cheerleader. So she goes to school and she tries out for cheer-leading and she gets the cheer-leading and then she has to get the costume and the pom-poms and the outfits, go to training... In that process she says: I'm a cheerleader. No, she's not. She's a Spirit having a human experience she chose. That's all. But in our consciousness, in the human consciousness, we become the accountant, we become the cheerleader, we become the race car driver...we become all these things. And in the end, we're always disappointed because they're always taken from us...with time. Always. But the one constant children, the one constant that never varies, never moves, is the power of Spirit and love - ever. That's the one thing that never changes. Remember what I said to you: In the end, all that will have ever mattered is how you loved, how you allowed yourself to love. That's it. 

Let's say that that you have a balcony. And let's say you love flowers but there's just no room. So you get yourself a couple of pots and you go down to the nursery and you get a couple of little plants that you know bloom all summer or in California you get some Pansies or Violas - they bloom all winter. And you put them in there just for the love of watching the manifestation of the beauty. That's you. The flower isn't the pot. The flower isn't the dirt. But yet somehow they grow and they make beautiful music, okay? 

So praying should be your intention to once again connect with your Source. You are not "humans having a spiritual connection". You are "Spirit having a human connection". Big difference. So what you're praying for is what you don't realize you have already - the Source Energy. The Source Energy is you sit in the Source Energy.  Abundance is sitting in the Source Energy. I'm doing some new CD's, some new materials on Abundance. Alfred, are we going to premier these on Jenneth's show? They're coming out very shortly.

Alfred:
We will be including those in the Tele-seminar happening on Thursday.

Hans:
On Thursday. Okay. So we've got a whole bunch of wonderful new products coming out. Wonderful new CD's and MP3's and different things. I'd like to personally extend my heartfelt gratitude and thank you to Jennifer for being such a big help with this. 

People become the Source Energy when they stop the mind chatter. I cannot tell you children how many times I've heard people say this: Where was it all the time? You were in the way of your own Source Energy. You were in the way of your own prayer. You are “The Power of Prayer”. But when the mind separates you from that Source, from that Force, then you're left to what the mind creates. And what the mind creates separates you from the Source and “The Power of Prayer”.

Now I'm going to have to end early today because we have a, shall we say a plethora of questions tonight. Do we not Alfred? Oh by the way Alfred I wanted to ask you if it's time for us to have a Questions Only Evening? 

Alfred:
Yes. We have so many new members that we're going to go back to doing something that we have done before - which is schedule a Members Only Evening. And basically the purpose of the Members Only Evening is so that we can specifically focus on answering Member Questions. Because on occasion there will be an evening like this where we just can't get to everyone. The Members Only Evening will not have any topics, it will be just completely focusing on answering Member Questions. So if we don't get to your question now, we will get to that first in the Members Only Evening and please just check the Members Area for that Announcement.

“Holding Spiritual Intention” - by Hans Christian King 
Spiritual Radio Show Transcription

GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE Radio Show
with Hans Christian King www.HansKing.com
and Alfred Ricci www.AlfredRicci.com
Topic:  Holding Spiritual Intention 
July 19, 2014




Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE. This is Alfred the Padawan Learner to the Modern Day Mystic himself Hans Christian King who is here with me in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We're down here for a little bit taking care of things but still broadcasting to you as we always do. We're in-service regardless of where we are in the world and we love reaching out to you no matter where we are through Facebook. That is our way of reaching out now through the modern day internet. And we are having a "Random Acts of Kindness" Contest. Basically that would be on-going as far as we can ever tell. If you "Share" and are kind to others and help us help others, we're going to be randomly picking people and rewarding you for "Sharing" with either Audio Lessons, Video Classes or whatever else we just decide to throw out there. Think of it as we've got a big bag of goodies and we're throwing it out to all of the good  little children! How's that for a vision Hans?

Hans:
I think that's terrific. Reminds me of a modern day Summer Santa!

Alfred:
A modern day Santa Claus.

Hans:
It is indeed.

Alfred:
So besides that we've got a lot of appearances. We were supposed to be on a Tele-seminar last Thursday but there was a slight snafu so we're going to be LIVE on a John Burgos "Beyond The Ordinary" Tele-seminar. I believe it's around 9:00 at night. I'm guessing Pacific Time. But check Facebook, check our Event Calendar, check our Newsletter because Hans will be taking Callers. So please check out that Tele-seminar appearance that's happening this Thursday evening.

Hans:
Alfred I did want to thank all the wonderful people who sent in the comments and the kind Facebook quotes for the Lisa Garr "Aware Show". That was a great show which I really enjoyed doing and I thank all of you who were so kind to send me such kind messages. 

Alfred:
So moving on to the topic for today which is what we normally do. If anybody's new to the show, the first half of the show is dedicated to a spiritual teaching. Today's topic is "Holding Your Intention". And as Hans and I have found out, it doesn't matter where you are in your spiritual growth, if you are a beginner or medium or advanced spiritual person - "Holding Your Intention" is really important. And during the second half of the show we get to Member Questions and we'll be talking more about what it is to be a Spiritual Circle Member. So strap on, hold on, get in a comfortable position, take a deep breath and Hans Christian King will be talking to you about "Holding Your Intention". 

Hans:
And here he comes. Hello everybody, welcome to the show. Thank you all for being so patient during my little recent health issues. I have to say it has been for me a rather bumpy four months. Not to worry anyone. These are simply things that have happened that, you know, time and medicine and positive thought can fix. They just went one after another. So I'm happy to tell everybody that I'm feeling much better. Certainly happy to be back with all of you today. 

There's something that's been coming up quite a lot lately in my work and it has to do with "Holding Intentions". A lot of people, a lot of friends, saying they're having a difficulty, no matter how much they believe, no matter how much they know and have sought and been taught, they're having a really difficult time in holding intentions because of that almost sometimes irrepressible mind chatter  that just sneaks in and just chips away and once confidence, once well being,  spiritual well being especially...and before you know it, you're literally caught up in the terrible fear and doubt and crushing opinion of the mind chatter. And so I want to reinforce with everyone today one thing. And that is: You have more power over the mind chatter than the mind chatter has over you. I can remember way back in the day when I also was working on this issue and a very famous Medium said to me: You must hold your intention. You must set your intention and hold it. And she said: It may be one of the hardest things you will ever have to learn. And I thought: Oh no, that's simple. You just say: I'm going to hold my intention and that's simple. But it doesn't quite work out that way does it folks? So many of you I've known for decades, literally, are still saying to me that you're having a struggle holding intention. And it is very, very difficult sometimes when we're bombarded in our daily life with personal issues, things that come out of left-field that shouldn't be there in the first place...friends, family, relatives ragging on you, society, fears...all of these things. Now we have this airliner, God bless those poor people...being shot down and your mind goes to: Why? What's the purpose in all this that's going on? So learning to distance yourself from the appearance of things is the key. It's not that you don't care. It's not that you don't have compassion. It's that you do not allow anything to disturb your ease. One of the things that I taught Alfred was that: If your ease is disturbed, you will become dis-eased. Alfred how does that work for you?

Alfred:
Well that's covering a lot of topics in a very short period of time.

Hans:
I'm good at that Alfred.

Alfred:
Let's talk about “Holding Your Intention”, the topic of today and trying to cover that on a fundamental basic is really what we try to do is help you get a solid spiritual foundation. And "Holding Your Intention" really helps you give you energy, helps give you motivation, helps give you courage. Remember we talked a couple of weeks ago about "Spiritual Courage". Keeping your intention, to remind yourself why you're doing what your doing, why you're on this spiritual path, why you're going, shall we say the grain of society, what your supposed family wants you to do, what your friends what you to do, why you're out there fighting the good fight. It helps you by setting your intention. Now Hans and I have 60 million different ways to help you set your intention. But I think, from my point of view, it really has to do with: Why am I on this spiritual path? What really motivates me to keep going? So that no matter what hits me, no matter what's in the news, no matter what somebody is doing out there, no matter how you feel inside, you can always rely back on your initial intention. How's that Hans?

Hans:
I think that's very good Alfred. I'm very proud of you for that statement. Keep up the good work. Alfred actually has learned how to hold his intention. And for many of you, with what's going on in so many people's life, that's difficult to do. That's why you have a Doorkeeper, everybody. You can always turn to your Doorkeeper. Remember that Doorkeeper we talked about? Remember how we access the Doorkeeper? You can turn to the Doorkeeper and say: I'm having difficulty in holding my intention please. Would you give me a hand? And so now that becomes two of you working on the same issue rather than you just trying to do that by yourself. But holding your intention is the key to life because what I've always tried to teach you, as many of you know is that: Energy follows thought. And if you hold your intention then what you're trying to achieve does come to fruition. Alfred?

Alfred:
And that's another good part of intention is trying to remind yourself every day, every time something happens, that you're not alone. That the Law of Free Will is a moment-to-moment thing. I've really learned to see that sometimes if you ask for help in the morning, there's something that you need to ask for help for in the afternoon to remind yourself that you are not alone but you constantly have to, as per the Law of Free Will - "ask". Ask to get help with this, ask to get guidance for that, ask for Them to give you strength, ask for Them to give you energy. And that really helps that your intention to be of service and be spiritual, yes is there but it really just helps knowing and reminding yourself that the family and friends you've always been looking for are always around you.

Hans:
Yes. This is very, very true. Always...you couldn't... When I was younger I used to say: You couldn't be alone if you tried. You are so surrounded in love and light. Folks, I want to go to a little subject here on this holding intention. I've noticed that so many of you seem to be embarrassed or feel a bit ashamed or guilty for not being able to hold intention and you weaken every once in awhile and you kind of let your side down. It's perfectly fine. The Spirit has no judgment. Lord knows I have no judgment. When this happens, just say: Oh, that's me being human again. That's my humanness coming forward.

Alfred:
Oh, I just heard the funniest example. It's: Even the greatest of Masters burn their bagels once in awhile.

Hans and Alfred Laughing

Hans:
That's very true. Yeah, that's very, very true.

Alfred:
Even if we forget to adjust the setting on the toaster. It's just we're in human form and you have to laugh at it.

Hans:
That's the key right there Alfred is laughing at it. Don't take yourself so seriously so that when you do have a moment when you feel you may have let yourself down, you haven't really let yourself down, your humanness did that. Your humanness came in and let you down. Not you, because you have your intention and you're holding your intention. And you're holding it in such a way that you totally benefit from it. Never allow any thinking in your head that you've let anybody down because you haven't. Your humanness may have skipped a beat. Your humanness may have caused you a little problem. But the essence of you, that beautiful soul that you are which is all that Spirit sees when They look at you, it's all that God knows when It looks at you, it's fine. It's your humanness commenting on your humanness. Right Alfred?

Alfred:
And I think that's where a lot of the issue with intention is - it comes from the question - "Why"? Why did I burn my toast this morning? Why did this happen? Why am I in this job? Why is this happening? Why is this not happening? And that's a real de-motivater. And if you're trying to hold your intention, let go of "why".

Hans:
Exactly.

Alfred:
Okay. So if you're trying to motivate yourself, just say: There's a purpose. I surrender. I trust. I have faith and belief. All of those things have a very similar meaning.

Hans:
The other day I just poked fun at myself, for instance. The other day I was making some food and I was making some rice. Now I have made rice for 50 years. I have never had any trouble making rice. I so made a hash out of this rice, I burned part of it, scorched part of it, part of it I couldn't even get off the bottom of the pan and I'm standing in the kitchen and I'm looking at the pan and I'm starting to run my stuff. I know better than that. How could I have allowed that to happen? What was I thinking? And I was running all this and suddenly I heard Guidance say: Oh my God you're the funniest thing! And I started laughing. And I laughed and laughed and I thought: Oh you see, you do teach what you need to learn. So all of you, like Alfred's saying, find some humor in it. Right Alfred?

Alfred:
Yes and that really does help. It reminds me of the old simple story of the ant trying to describe the elephant. There's no way us as being so insignificant in the Universe can actually understand all of the infinite combinations that need to be done in order to coordinate us with soul mates, that needed to the coordinated on the Other Side to provide us abundance to manifest something on This Side, all of the infinite combinations of karma and past lives and soul mates to help coordinate those experiences that we asked for. So instead of stressing yourself, instead of getting depressed, I think one of the best ways to hold your intention is to surrender and just say: I have faith and belief. And it is through having the faith and belief that the Other Side says: Aah, now this person is ready. They've surrendered. They're not controlling. They have trust and belief in what we're doing. They're not fussing. Okay? So if you want to feel better, if you want to keep your intention, if you want to keep things rolling in the way that they're supposed to, let go, surrender and trust that those who watch over you have your highest good in mind and your life is unfolding the way it's supposed to unfold.

Hans:
Absolutely. And you know folks, Alfred pointed out something very important - have trust. Know that you already are perfect in God's eyes. You haven't let anyone down. It's just your humanness and trust that Spirit has no judgment, sees you are already perfect, and laughs with you when you laugh with you. Don't take yourself so serious. Try to find some humor. Holding intention may be actually folks, one of the hardest things you'll ever do in your life. Because it's a constant. Because the mind chatter is so prevalent in your former way of being that it actually slips in when you're not even looking. I know people here in this wonderful audience of ours who've been with me 20, 30 years who still find themselves slipping and going back into what I used to call "running their crazies". Okay? And they still do it. But the key right now is to remember that you're not doing it - your mind chatter is. You're perfect. Oops, there goes my humanness again. Try saying that: Oops, there's go my humanness again. And laugh at it. Giggle at it. Because Spirit already knows what your intention is therefore the intention is what they look at not what you are currently doing or your humanness is currently doing. Alfred?

Alfred:
If I may steal an observation from somebody I had a session with this morning actually is that humanness is like a magnet. It just constantly pulls on you.

Hans:
It sure does.

Alfred:
And when you let your guard down, it is so easy to slip back into humanness. Now do you get mad at yourself because you slipped in or do you just go back to doing your regular practices? And that's it, not to get upset, just to say: Ooop, yep, I'm in human form, this is going to continue until I let go of this body. And that's basically it. And it's a huge difference between beating yourself up and just saying: Oh, well yeah I'm in human form. Um, should I tell the "Hole in the road joke"?

Hans:
Sure. I love that.

Alfred:
Hole in the road joke. This was one of Hans' first teachings and it's so relevant to when I first started out as the Padawan and I think it fits in with intention and motivation. You fall in a hole in the road and you ask yourself: What the heck was that? How did I fall in the hole in the road? And you start looking for holes and BAM! you fall in another hole in the road. And you're like: Okay, this is getting a little ridiculous. And you look a little harder and you say: I see a hole in the road and you still fall in the hole in the road. So you see a hole in the road and you're trying to go around it, trying to go around it, and you still fall in the hole in the road. And then finally you get the hang of it. You see the hole in the road, you walk all the way around it and as you're congratulating yourself, you fall in the next hole in the road. (Alfred and Hans Laughing) Do you get mad at yourself or do you just laugh? Because as we like to say: You're not going to be done with your lessons until you dissolve and become Buddha...

Hans:
You'll keep falling in the holes in the road.

Alfred:
So you're going to keep falling in the holes in the road. So I think on of the best ways to keep your intention is just to laugh. It's so hard when you get depressed, it's so hard when you get angry, it's so hard when you see something as you perceive to be happening in your life to drag yourself out of it and laugh at it but I think that was one of the greatest ways to hold your intention.

Hans:
It really is. And folks, being kind to you, when setting intentions...your intention is to hold your intention. Okay? Find a place in you that allows for you to not be humanly perfect. You're spiritually perfect. Find the humor in your humanness and what it does to you from time to time. Just laugh at it. It's funny. Because you know the mind chatter just makes up everything. It has no rhyme nor reason. It always thinks it's correct, it always thinks it knows best, and it keeps driving you into the hole in the road. And then it tries to explain why it drove you into the hole in the road...it was somebody else's fault. All of these little parables, all of these things that we try and teach you are meant to help you to understand that you are simply baby angels in the human form. Therefore again you are susceptible to human frailties. 

Alfred:
So that reminds me of an exercise that I give to my students of the Automatic Writing and Channeling Class that if you're looking to reconnect to the vibration of the Other Side, if something's knocked you off and you're trying to re-set your intention, go for a walk in nature. You may be grumpy, you may be miserable, but there is something about connecting to nature, connecting specifically to that vibration and energy that re-connects you with Spirit, that calms you down, helps you to become peaceful, helps you become centered. And whatever problem there was just seems to dissolve when you connect with the peacefulness and  harmony of nature. Even if it's as simple as sticking your nose 2 inches from a flower and just admiring the miracle of the flower itself. Try that if you need to re-set your intention. 

Hans:
Speaking of that I was reminded of something that I saw on the internet yesterday. These two gentlemen were fishing near Cabo San Lucas in Mexico and they saw this turtle, about a medium sized turtle and the turtle was all tangled up in fishing line. And he was about to drown. He was in bad shape and they got in the water with their cameras and they went and they untangled the turtle and the turtle didn't look all that good...he looked like he was really exhausted. And he started to swim away. And then he stopped, and he came back and he swam right up to the gentleman who had untangled him, went right up to his mask and knocked on the mask with his little nose and stayed there for just maybe 30 seconds as if to say thank you. Folks, the power...the power of intention...that turtle, no matter how disoriented he was, no matter how confused and upset he was, his intention was to swim back and thank that man for saving him. There's a beauty in setting intention and sometimes, sometimes when the mind chatter interferes with our intention to hold our intention, we just have to laugh at it. Don't take it too seriously. But it's been coming up Alfred an awful lot with my clients lately and I don't know whether it's to do with anything you know in the stars or modern day society concerns but I hoped this has helped today. Anything before we close Alfred?

Alfred:
No. I think that's a pretty good summary Hans.

Hans:
I think so. And that my friends will conclude the lesson for today.

Spiritual Radio Show Transcription

GUIDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE Radio Show
with Hans Christian King www.HansKing.com
and Alfred Ricci www.AlfredRicci.com
Topic:  Communication with Spirit
July 12, 2014




Alfred:
Hello everyone and welcome to MODERN DAY MYSTICISM being broadcast on The World Puja Network. Tonight's topic - "Communication with Spirit". Without further ado, I present to you Hans Christian King.

Hans:
Good evening everyone. Good evening. Thank you for being with us this evening. Beautiful day here in the Great Smokey Mountains and the trees are coming out, the rivers and streams are full. So I think that summer is coming a little bit, I think.

For many years people have said to me: What does the Bible say about Angels? It's very clear. In the Bible...let's go to the Greek translation of the Bible for instance. It says that: An Angel is a messenger or a bearer of information. But each and everyone of us has an ability to connect with that Angel, to connect with that bearer of information - all of this habit. Unfortunately through the many years of our lives we've had a tendency to sort of paste over it, to paper over it, to paint over it, to where it is very difficult for the Spirit - those loving Angels - to get through. So "Communication with Spirit" is a matter of recognizing #1, you have it and that each person who is listening to us this evening has souls in the spirit form who assist you in your journey on a daily basis. No one is ever without Guidance. It is a matter of recognition. It is a matter of opening up and accepting that you have it. And beginning to limit the mind chatter opens the door for all the possibilities. As always I bring Alfred on-board here for a moment. Alfred how did you first recognize that you had Angels, Guides, Helpers, Friends?

Alfred:
Well there's a difference between receiving your first communication and getting an understand of who it was from. So is it my first communication or my first understanding?

Hans:
Your first understanding Alfred.

Alfred:
I would say through Automatic Writing...

Hans:
Um hm.

Alfred:
...is the first chance that I was able to get very clear communication from Guidance that specifically had to do about my life and that came through me. So it was my first direct contact with my Guidance.

Hans:
Um hmm. Did you have to go through a process of...for me it always was so I didn't go through the process... Did you have to go through a process of belief in it? How did you get past the mind chatter that may have thrown up doubts? I think that would be very important and helpful to our listening family.

Alfred:
It's a quiet determination that I talked about last week is that you have to be determined to say: Look brain I know you really want to run things, I know you've been running things for the last 30, 40 years - let's give this a shot. Let's just try it. Let's try it for a week, 2 weeks. If we don't like it, we'll go back to way things were. But maybe it will work. If it does work, hey let's at least try it and make sure. So you have to be very, very determined and resolute that if you're going to do it - doit. Or don't do it. Yoda said: Do it, but don't try.

Hans:
Do or don't do but don't try.

Alfred:
And that's it. You can't be sort of pregnant. You can't sort of be spiritual. Sure you can try to be spiritual but you asked me the thing that really was the determining factor in me being able to receive communication - it was absolute determination to put aside my mind chatter and connect to that which might be...could be.

Hans:
I remember when you used to go into your office and stay in there for hours and you had a sign that said: Don't even think of knocking. And that said to the outside world that you were actually sitting with Spirit and developing communication. Is that how it worked?

Alfred:
When I first started, yes. Basically I locked myself in a room and cut off all communication. Later I came on to realize that's how the great Masters learned self-realization, learned to receive guidance. In India they went into a cave in the Himalaya's. The Monks, whether they be Christian Monks or Buddhist Monks, went to a Monastery and isolated themselves so they weren't interfered with in order to meditate, receive guidance, go inward. So I got lucky and found the same type of path.

Hans:
You know what I have found with so many people is this...it's not so much mistrust, I think as it is "fear to believe". When we say to you: Every person is assisted by spirit form. So in other words these souls are in spirit form. Each and every one of you has Guidance, again Helpers, Friends. And I know that so many people want to believe that is true. But they find it very hard to apply. I remember one lady just looked at me and she said: Are you sure? Are you sure Hans it's true? Well Angel, I've been working with it for 56 years so for me it absolutely is true. Now I've been talking to you folks about this particular class that we're teaching...been talking about limiting the mind chatter. Now I've been talking to you a long time about that. But one of the reasons that you learn to limit the mind chatter is that by doing so the better able you are to hear Guidance. That's the key. So in other-words, less is more. And so, now people say: Well Hans, how did you turn off your mind chatter? For the work I turn it off completely. But in the beginning I had to work on it. I was the same as everybody else. Because the fact was that I was in the human form. And again, Spirit always reminds us that while we're in human form we are susceptible to human frailties, you see. And so there's a part of the naturalness of the human form that wants to "believe" that it knows best, that it is in control, it is taking caring of us. So to risk or to venture "outside" of that belief causes quite a raucous in the consciousness and I call it, of course mind chatter. But the more you learn to push the mind chatter aside, the clearer you get in "Communication with Spirit". It's that simple, you see. The more you work on the mind chatter, which is what I've been harping on you folks for so many years, the more you learn that the more you counter the mind chatter, the more you get from Spirit. Alfred was that so for you?

Alfred:
There's a lot of side benefits that we've talked about - happiness, bliss, peace but the hugest benefit you get from clearing mind chatter is that it makes a space for guidance from Spirit to enter your life. And that's where we're taking the teachings now. We're moving it up a level...taking it up a notch to say: What happens when you let go of so much?  Let go of bad habits, let go of bad thoughts - it creates a space.

Hans:
Um hmm.

Alfred:
The questions is: What do you put in there? We say: Nothing.

Hans:
That's exactly right.

Alfred:
Enjoy the peace, enjoy the bliss, be happy, do nothing, relax. And then we're taking you on the next level which is: There's now a space for Spirit's Guidance, Truth, Blessings to come into your life.

Hans:
Well what you're saying is absolutely correct. You know the gifts of the previous lessons on mind chatter is clarity Alfred. It really is that simple. But I find in my work that people want so much to believe. They try so hard to believe. But belief is very simple you see. It just "is". Now on my way down here this evening from upstairs, we have a recording studio downstairs, I thought I would go outside and as I did there was a bunny rabbit sitting on the walkway. And the little bunny froze and I froze and I just started to talk to him and I said: Well I have to go to work now. And he just looked at me and turned his head. Then he remembered his fear. But for a moment...for a moment...he just sat there and looked at me. The same when you're in human form. For a moment if you but believe, you can take those moments and stretch them and the more you stretch them the clearer you become. Something came up today that would concern or worry most people. I just looked at it and I thought: Well this is interesting. No, I choose, I choose not to go there. I choose not to go there. I choose to simply "be". Which is practicing what I teach. Because whatever the mind chatter is saying it basically isn't true. All of us from time to time have had great moments of clarity. And in that clarity we find ourself...we find our truth. Clarity allows space you see for Spirit to present guidance to you. And that's what we're trying to teach you. This is what we're harping on. All these different things that you keep thinking we sayover and over again - if you put them together you will understand why. Clarity brings you your Guidance. Have you found that so Alfred?

Alfred:
Clarity is not clarity of thought - the way we're talking about it. Clarity is...

Hans:
Lack of thought.

Alfred:
...it's lack of thought. It's lack of mind chatter. It has a lot to do with the class that we just taught which is Spring Cleaning for Happiness. It's letting go of old clutter that you don't need to have. What we're actually saying - it's not like real life if you put it in a closet and let go of it it doesn't bother you. Yeah, if it's something that you're trying to hide and stick it in your mind it will bother you...

Hans:
Yes it will.

Alfred:
So clarity is letting go of old habits, letting go of mind chatter. It's being peaceful. It just is. That's the clarity we're talking about.

Hans:
Simplicity itself. Remember always the truth and clarity are simplicity itself. What is in your way - altogether now, come on - what is in your way? One, two, three - your mind chatter. That children is what is in your way. And once you begin to understand that you begin to giggle at it. You laugh at it. Because you see some of the things that you do to deliberately, absolutely deliberately, try to scuttle your own ship! And then you call me and say: Well Hansy, why am I doing this? Because you don't believe. You're still operating out of the mind chatter. To get clear communication with Spirit - #1 you must first go inward. You know go -  inside of yourself and release perception. Now that's...Alfred there you go have fun with that one.

Alfred:
Well that's what we've been talking about for the last month is we've been talking and harping about letting go of perception, letting go of opinion, letting go of things such as trauma, letting go...just letting go of everything you possibly could and we've just been talking about it so much but we've saved the best for last. The main absolute reason and it's the core - absolute core of Hans' teachings - to let go of mind chatter, perception, opinion...these human aspects...is because you will open yourself up to an army of supporters, an army of love with infinite knowledge and infinite resources to guide your life. And the best part is they know your dharma. They know why you're there. You've asked them to guide you. But for the first time you're going to say: Okay, can you come guide me now? I'm opening space in my life for you to help.

Hans:
The key here is when Spirit sees your willingness to let go of perception through mind chatter... When They see that, when They understand: Aah, they've heard it! A smile comes over the face of your Guides, your Helpers...comes over God's face. A smile that says: Thank Heaven. Now they can do their real work. Now they can begin to move forward in love and light and find out what it is that they came to do. For many of you the internal struggle over self worth, self esteem...just learning that... Folks you hear me say it but do you ever put it to consciousness? “You already are enough.” Nothing you are going to do or create is ever going to make you better than who you already are for God. And we all have so many heartbeats. We all have so much air to breathe. That's it...and then we go home. And then we meet all up in our classes that we'll be doing on the Other Side, when we meet up, and you do your life's review and you say: Hansy, thank goodness I listened "or" Hansy, I wish I had listened. Be in the group that says: Aha, I listened. By releasing that which you perceive to be true, you create space for Spirit to present truth and miracles in your life. Again, by releasing by what you think to be true through your perception, you create space for Spirit to present truth and miracles to you. Alfred?

Alfred:
This is the real essence of the lesson tonight. You have two choices. Listen to what your mind perceives to be true. Listen to the opinions in your head. Or, listen to what your Guidance is telling you. You can't have both. Well should I say it's really difficult to have both. Okay? Why is it difficult to have both? Well imagine listening to a Professor on stage but you've got headphones on. Well the headphones are going to block what the person on the stage is trying to tell you. It's really difficult to listen to two people talking to you at the same time.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
Usually for us poor humans we can only listen to one thing at a time and hear one thing at a time and concentrate on one thing at a time. So it's a choice. It's a choice whether you want to believe what your mind is telling you or to let that go and open yourself up to the unbelievable possibilities, the unbelievable love of an army of family and friends just waiting to bless you and support you...

Hans:
And open all these wonderful doors for you.

Alfred:
...and it's almost impossible to describe all of the things that can happen once you allow your Guidance and once you allow the Universal Energy into your life. You just have to live it. And then when it hits you, you just say: Oh... And that's something that you as an individual need to do. It's not something that we can tell you. We can tell you: Here's the water. That's all we can do.

Hans:
You know Alfred somebody wrote a book and I forget who it was but they said: It was there all the time.

Alfred:
It is there all the time.

Hans:
All the time.

Alfred:
And that's the issue is if you're so caught in your head you're not going to hear anybody trying to give you guidance. They're not going to whack you over the head unless it's really important or life threatening. But basically on a general, every single day basis, your Guidance, your Angels are guiding you.

Hans:
Yes.

Alfred:
And that's the essence is they are always there.

Hans:
You're never alone.

Alfred:
You are never alone. But if you're in your head, you are alone. Because you're blocking them. And again another essence of tonight's teachings is that by letting go of what you perceive to be reality, by letting that go, then all of a sudden you are available to receive what is actually reality, what is the purpose of your life.

Hans:
So in other-words, we go back to our original statement. What is in our way? Our mind chatter is in the way of our peace, in the way of our joy, in the way of our possibilities, in the way of the blessing of ourself to ourself. Mind chatter is the single most destructive element in nature as far as this man is concerned. Let yourself be free. For instance, Alfred and I are going toteach a class called "Walking Between Two Worlds". We will teach it at the Agape University in Los Angeles. And people say: Well what's that mean? It means learning how to literally walk this path with one foot in this dimension and one foot in the dimension of Spirit. Yes, you can do that. And a lady emailed me: Well how does that work? Because you believe. Here's what you believe - That you are in fact an Angel having a human experience. Your spirit, your soul, an essence was chosen to have a human experience. So you learn how to reattach to that spiritual quality of who you are and then how to garner the most out of this world. As the Christ pointed out very clearly: Learn to be in this world but not of it. Once that settles in you, once you hear that, your life changes. Yes Alfred?

Alfred:
A lot of what we're talking about is very, shall we say, pie in the sky. Okay? Miracles, Truth, Guidance...

Hans:
That's what the mind chatter like to get a hold of.

Alfred:
Yes. (Alfred changes his voice) "And they're not giving you any hard core examples, can you really believe this hogwash, what are they really talking about, they're just trying to fool you."

Hans:
Alfred that's very good, I like that. We'll get you a job as a voice over man.

Alfred:
(Laughing) Yeah, I've had some battles with my mind chatter. So let's give you a couple of examples that really happened to us. Okay? A couple of years ago I was working on Hans' book and I said: Okay Hans it's time to start looking for a publisher. Now the graduate in me would say: Okay, let's do some market research and let's find out who Hans' direct and indirect competition isand let’s find out what publishers they use and let's make a sample of the book and start sending it around to the publishers and let's find out what the normal percentages are and how much the negotiation should be and start getting a short list of potential publishers and then discussing more details with all of those... And I wasn't even a quarter of the way through that and Hans says: No. Spirit will bring us a publisher. And I said: I'm sorry? And he says: No. Don’t do any of that. When it's time They'll bring us a publisher.

Hans:
You looked very incredulous at me like I had lost my mind.

Alfred:
I was speechless and I said, as I've been teaching: Okay, let's try it. What’s he worst thing that can happen? Nothing. I'll go back to the way, the insanity that I was going to do it...

Hans:
But what happened Alfred?

Alfred:
But what happened is I printed out a copy of the book and Hans says: Let me carry it around. Well about a month later Hans was in Los Angeles doing readings and a client he had for about 20 years who happened to own his own publishing company says... What did he say Hans?

Hans:
He said: What's that sitting beside you? I said: It's a manuscript for my book. And he ran across the table and he grabbed it and said: It's mine. I will publish it.

Alfred:
And that's what happens when you allow "space". That's what happens when you "trust". Miracle - what is a miracle? A miracle is something that happens for your benefit that you didn't do.

Hans:
Um hm.

Alfred:
That's a miracle.

Hans:
Well the miracle that I think of is Alfred is actually putting yourself in a place to receive the miracle.

Alfred:
And that's your job...

Hans:
And that’s your job.

Alfred:
...to create the miracle. That's a little bit advanced, but it's along the same principle is if you want to hear Guidance - turn left, yes, no, go straight ahead, stop, yes this is for you, no that's not for you - you need to "hear" it. If you want to receive truth, if you want to receive miracles, you need to stop being so busy. Stop thinking. Stop thinking you're in control. Stop thinking you know the best way. Possibly...

Hans:
Wow, that was really a statement from you.

Alfred:
It is. Trust me. It is.

Hans:
(Laughing) Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness...

Alfred:
Grinding my teeth on that one. Because that's what they teach all of us is: You are in control of your life. You can be anything you want to be. And we're saying: Sure. Okay. How's that working for ya?

Hans and Alfred Laughing

Alfred:
Are you stressed out of your mind?

Hans:
I used to say to Alfred - How are you doing in there son? (Laughing)

Alfred:
Did you go to sleep arguing with yourself every single night...do those voices in your head keep you up at night?

Hans:
He once said to me...I was giving him a little dressing....and he says: WHERE DO YOU COME FROM? And he just couldn't get it. He was so educated and so caught up in the appearance of that education and the bank jobs and the hard work and all that and he goes: Where do you come from? And I said: From peace...from peace.

Alfred:
And what I'm telling you is you can believe that that's the best that there is or you can try to just open yourself up to things that you thought unimaginable. Here's a really simple one. Think we mentioned this once or twice...really simple. You walk into a room. All of a sudden you look around. You don't know anybody, but you walk into a room and and something tells you: Ewh, that person's kind of icky. And your brain says: Look, he's got a gold watch. He's really nicely dressed. All those people are around him. We should go over there. And your heart tells you: No. Something's wrong with that situation. Something doesn't feel right. Well if you've ever watched...what is that show...American Greed... Is that the show? It's always the people with the big gold watches and the boats and the yachts and the signed photos who are the people who are the scammers. Well guess what? Your Guidance and your higher-self just may have saved you a bunch of time. Why? Because you listened to that and not your mind chatter. That in itself is truth. That in itself saved you a lot of pain and agony. Very simple example of how your life could be better by not listening to your mind chatter.

Hans:
Thank you Mr. Alfred. The reason folks I use Alfred a lot...one of the reasons is because he's so fresh into the experience of declining the information from the mind chatter. And for many of you I know it's been a big help to have a younger person...because I've been at it a long time...and so it's just natural for me. But it wasn't natural for him. So this has been very, very important to us. And I believe Alfred that that concludes the lesson for this evening.
