ABOUT THE MUSIC:
Musical accompaniment for your seminar further impresses upon your subconscious the lessons. Whenever you hear, at any time in the future, the melodies, your seminar experience will be refreshed in your consciousness.
Some suggested songs and music are included. Adding your own can be fun, creative and expanding; it also provides an opportunity for adventure and self-awareness as you search for the appropriate music.
Preparing your own tapes of the Processes and/or musical accompaniment is especially impressive upon your subconscious. I’ve spent hours, days, weeks searching out just the right music or song, which keeps me focused on the lessons. I use the following music in my seminars. However, any music that helps to impress these songs on your subconscious mind are okay. I’d love to hear your suggestions. If you don’t have access to music don’t worry, the program works

LIFE MANDALA AND COLORS:
The mandala is a unique method of communication with both the subconscious and superconscious
Through the use of colors and designs it encourages the subconscious to release memories, pictures, and awareness of buried or past information and pertinent experiences. This can be healing in all aspects of a transformed life as these memories surface and are blessed, forgiven, and released.
The mandala also serves as a vehicle for the Superconscious to guide and inspire. When you feel guided to use a certain color you can ask the Superconscious, Why?” Revelations will instruct, and inform. Ideas and inspiration will begin to flow.
The color-coordinations were suggested by Unity in conjunction with their “Twelve Powers of Man” Sunday School material. Healing energies can be released in the body by visualizing the designated color(s) in the body locations of the specific Power(s).
We are going to move rapidly through the cycle of birth-life-death-resurrection-ascension rebirth-reincarnation- eternal life, (mentioned in the mandala explanation) with an appropriate comment or two that I’ve gleaned through the years. DEATH — is not the opposite of birth or even of life. It’s simply another phase of life that is synonymous with birth. It is the passing through a door, so to speak, into the next room of the “many mansions.” It’s not a time to fear, but to prepare for by a life fully lived according to your present level of consciousness; just as you prepared for this life.
You could, if you choose, communicate with those who have passed on just as easily (even more easily) as with those in this lifetime experience. The first barrier is thinking you can’t do it. The second is thinking it’s wrong. The third is fear of doing it — “what will I say; what will they say; will they know everything I’m thinking and doing?” You can invite them into your space just as you do those you have already talked to, and do the same sort of process with them.
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Raymond Moody, Jr. and Ruth Montgomery (to name a few) have written excellent books on the subject of death and dying. Dr. Moody’s books, “Life After Life” and “Reflections on Life after Life” are based upon actual experiences of people who have clinically “died” and then returned to life to tell of their experiences. This is certainly reassuring to the skeptical and fearful. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’s book, “On Death and Dying” is a classic.
The significance of death in this chapter on “Life” has to do with the crucifixion as it pertained to Jesus and as it pertains to us. Everything Jesus did was an example for us ~n our overcoming. It symbolizes the crossing-out.” It’s also a phase of the Wilderness. RESURRECTION — this is symbolic of entry into the Promised Land and dwelling there. It’s lifting-up or restoring of the whole person when your being work in unison and harmony without conflict within yourself. It’s more than the three-selves; it’s the whole self in tune, balance, order, harmony. It’s living in the Promised Land and dealing with everything, including the obstacles. ASCENSION — there are no obstacles! this is oneness — God-self, only. It is doing what Jesus did when the three-selves became the Christ-self. We can do it! Jesus said we can do anything He did — and better! He said, “I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto me.” He was describing the symbolic idea of the ascension! It’s very possible that in the statement, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them,” could be the meaning of the three-selves with the Christ-self being predominant.
REBIRTH — this takes place daily as the Christ consciousness is brought forth within us as we endeavor to live our life from the highest or Christ self. Christmas is symbolic of this daily happening. Many people like to keep some of the Christmas mementos about in remembrance of this being a daily event. REINCARNATION — this term refers to many lifetimes being lived here in this earth existence. If you would like to experience past lifetimes you may do the following process:
Lie down and become comfortable. Take a deep breath and release. Take another deep breath and imagine yourself lying on a hillside looking up at a huge, intense, vibrant rainbow. As you are looking at it you will notice one color is becoming much more vibrant and intense than the others. Center your attention on that color until you feel yourself merging with it. Become one with the color and ask your subconscious (sometimes it’s your superconscious) to use that color to take you to a time and place that it wants to show you as a result of giving you this color; or ask it for a memory or a picture that has to do with the color. It may be one from this lifetime just to get in practice and warmed-up. In fact, you may get several from this lifetime. You may have to work with it awhile to prepare for the past lifetime experience.
When you are ready on all levels you will be given a picture or a memory or taken to a past time and place. If you have fears, barriers or considerations you may have to work those through before the experience is possible. If it has been an especially meaningful or emotional time you may feel some fear, hesitation or apprehension from your emotional self. It would be well to push through and examine it, as it may be having a great influence on this lifetime.
You may handle the process as if you are watching a movie screen or a stage-play. When you wish to move along and/or see something else just ask for the next picture or scene. You be the director and the rest will happen. If there are more details you wish to see just ask for them. If it doesn’t seem clear ask for clarity
When you have completed one experience and one color you may do the same thing with another color. You may do this as often as you wish. Sometimes it’s emotionally draining, so don’t overdo just because it’s new and interesting. Use wisdom and good judgment. You may wish to keep notes on your experiences. Also ask for names and dates and places. Sometimes you will be able to check them out. There are many who have done so with amazing accuracy.
If you have some heavy things to deal with from a past lifetime be sure to pass right on through until it is handled. you will find a great release and relief in this lifetime when that’s accomplished. Your subconscious wants it handled that’s why it’s giving you the experience. Remember, your subconscious is also your memory as well as your emotions and feelings.
In such a process Dad Freeland, my paternal grandfather and adopted father, communicated with me that he wanted my forgiveness for the “trips” he had put on me in this lifetime. He said he was unable to continue in his growth until that had been accomplished. Once we had our communication he was released. This is the reason I encourage people to “clean-up” their relationships in this lifetime, because I know it’s more difficult on the other side.
You will want to keep balanced as you delve into these events. Now is the reality you are living in for the needed growth and development. Stay with it! ETERNAL LIFE — is the ultimate union with God, love, the Allness that is. It comes when we have fulfilled all our life’s obligations of learning, evolving and unfolding. Don’t expect to achieve this in the immediate future.

ENJOY YOUR TRANSFORMATION!!!
How do you?
The Disciple Judas represents in us the unregenerative man in us that is not aware of a spiritual path. As such he is unwilling to accept, or unwilling to change in order to become transformed into the Christ-self (regenerative man as did Jesus. Judas lives for himself and himself only, wanting what he wants with no regard for others or the price that must be paid to obtain what he wants.
Don’t for one moment believe that something of Judas doesn’t exist in each of us at some time. Even a truly dedicated, totally committed individual will have his/her moments of temptation and betrayal. Constant and persistent awareness of the Christ within, and an unwavering desire to live life from the Christ-self, with Jesus as our example, is the only salvation from falling into the trap that beset Judas.
We have all found ourselves in our self-righteousness doing something entirely contrary to the inner guidance, even though we know what is the highest, truest and best. To say otherwise would be a lie and self-deception. Nevertheless, it’s part of the path we must trod in our ever-growing, evolving, unfolding journey throughout eternity. There are steps along the way that we can take in order to avoid such actions as selling out (our Christ or higher self) for a few shekels. Be aware then of the sequence set forth by Judas that we may now rise beyond these pitfalls.
Read carefully the events preceding Judas’s actions. Keep in mind that he was a treasurer (the keeper of the purse) for the group. Who knows for what purposes he imagined the money should have been used. Nevertheless, you can be certain it would in some manner support his own purposes in the overall picture.
So when he observes Jesus allowing and condoning the woman pouring an expensive bottle of perfume over his head, the “indignant disciple,” Judas, made the comment, “What a waste of good money; why she could have sold it for a fortune and given it to the poor.” And then to add insult to injury Jesus blithely commented, “Why are you criticizing her? For she has done a good thing to me. You will always have the poor among you, but you won’t always have me.” (The Living Bible Version).
Jesus added a few more remarks but Judas probably didn’t hear them because he was on his way out the door to visit the chief priests. This anointing with oil episode was the last straw! According to the very next verse he asked, “How much will you pay me to get Jesus into your hands?” And they gave him thirty silver coins.” He then awaited an opportunity to betray Jesus. This had been brewing for some time within Judas. as a Zealot and a revolutionary (in other words a malcontent) he’d thought by putting his lot in with Jesus he’d found a perfect leader for his cause — the overthrow of the Roman government in Israel.
However, as time went along Judas became restless and disenchanted as he watched Jesus doing nothing to bring about the desired end results. Either Jesus would do something to save his own neck, or He never would or could. Surely, if He truly were the Messiah He could call forth armies at the snap of His finger!
Later Jesus and the disciples were all together at the Last Supper and Jesus, being intuitive, said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” You can imagine Judas about jumped out of his seat. He probably was in terror as to what Jesus was going to do about it now that He knew! On the one hand, maybe He would finally do something constructive about this political scene. He might even understand Judas’s concern and foresight of taking matters in his own hands and would possibly make him an officer of the armies, a job he certainly was willing and able to perform. Of course, on the other hand, Judas wondered if Jesus did have these powers, would He be so angry He’d have Judas destroyed? Judas decided it was a chance he’d have to take.
Before Judas could consider any further, the other disciples each asked if it were them, so Judas played the game by asking, “Is it I, Lord?” To which Jesus said, “You said so. Jesus had made an overall comment with the words, “He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me will betray me. The son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the son of man is betrayed. It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.”
There may have been moments of indecision on the part of Judas as he went to the chief priests to set up the following events, no one really knows. Perhaps he felt now “the die is cast” and there was nothing else he could do but go through with it. Obviously he would no longer be on the welcome list of Jesus and the group. The next we hear of him in the Bible is after Jesus has prayed to God to remove the cup if it be possible, “Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done.”
It is thus worded: “While He (Jesus) was still speaking, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a great crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the elders of the people. Now the betrayer had given them a sign saying, ‘The one I shall kiss is the man; seize him,’ and he kissed him. Jesus said to him, ‘Friend, why are you here?’ then they came up and seized him.”
The rest is history. Jesus was crucified and Judas hanged himself. The difference is that Jesus was resurrected and ascended and lives on today as the greatest way-shower, teacher and example of living the Christ ( transformed) life.
Judas’s life is an example of what not to do. Yet there are many who follow the example of Judas all the way. Let it be clearly understood this is a matter of choice every moment along the way. At any time you can say, “No, I do not choose to follow this path any longer; there is a higher and better way.” From that moment on it may not be easy, but you have made the choice toward the Transformation. The caterpillar emerges from the cocoon and makes its way as the glorious butterfly.
Judas is the disciple whose position is to deal with people caught up in the darkness of life in either a preventative or curative manner. So whatever you have done no matter how apparently evil or terrible it may seem to you, he is there to help you if you want to change. Or to assist and understand if you don’t. He is not there to judge or condemn! There is nothing you can tell him or discuss with him that he’ll not understand.
Nothing you can say or do to him will cause him to stop loving you and caring for you and being with you if you want him! This is his privilege that he has earned as a result of his soul’s outworkings. It assists him too in his soul’s growth.
He is so pleased you are asking him for help. So don’t hesitate to share anything with him at all — anything! This is his opportunity as well as yours to clean-up and clear-up.
Please talk with Judas. He is waiting for you and he understands if you have uneasiness, hostility or judgment toward him. Judas had a role to fill just as you have, and he filled it. Don’t judge him too harshly until you have talked with him and read his message later in the chapter. Ask him for any communications. Share with him your feelings about him. Ask him why he betrayed Jesus, why betrayal is part of life, how life has betrayed you, and how you have betrayed life. You may be surprised with some of his answers.
Take as long as you wish (or you may make this an ongoing experience.
MESSAGE FROM JUDAS
THIS CHAPTER HAS BEEN A “MESSAGE FROM ME, JUDAS” GIVEN
IN LOVE TO SOMEHOW COMPENSATE FOR THE MISTRUST AND BETRAYAL
THAT I ALLOWED TO BECOME PART OF YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS AS A
RESULT OF DEED — DONE, I MIGHT ADD, DELIBERATELY, AND WITH
MALICE AFORETHOUGHT, AS AN EXAMPLE (I LEARNED AFTERWARD) OF
THOSE THINGS THE CONSCIOUSNESS WILL DO IN THE FORM OF
BETRAYAL AND TEMPTATION IF ALLOWED TO GO UNRESTRAINED. I
WOULD TELL YOU THIS, THAT YOU CANNOT EXPECT TO GO THROUGH
LIFE ALLOWING YOURSELF EVERY WHIM AND FANCY AND CONSIDER
THAT IT IS OF GOD FOR A POSITIVE AND CONSTRUCTIVE PURPOSE.
THERE ARE PERVERSIONS AND DEVIATIONS WITHIN EACH AND ALL OF
US. TO THIS EXTENT THE TEMPTER (ADVERSARY — ADVERSE
CONSCIOUSNESS) IS ACTIVE. HOWEVER, THERE IS NO FORCE SUCH AS
DEVIL WHO OPPOSES GOD AND “DOES IT TO US.” WE MUST TAKE FULL
RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTS AND ACTIONS WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF A
COPOUT KNOWN AS “THE DEVIL,” WHO SUPPOSEDLY “MAKES US DO IT.” WE
DO WHAT WE DO OF OUR OWN FREE-WILL AND BY OUR OWN CHOICES. THIS TO A
GREATER EXTENT IS OUR MISSION: TO OVERCOME THESE
TEMPTATIONS THAT BESET US AND TURN US ASIDE FROM OUR CHRIST-SELF. I
COULD JUST AS EASILY HAVE ALLOWED MY CHRIST-SELF TO
MASTER MY LIFE AS CAN YOU, HOWEVER I GAVE IN TO CHOICES THAT
WERE ADVERSE TO THAT CONSCIOUSNESS. I KNEW WITHIN MY SOUL WHAT I
CHOSE TO DO WAS CONTRARY TO MY HIGHER GUIDANCE. YET I DID NOT
LISTEN, AS YOU AT TIMES DO NOT LISTEN. I THOUGHT ON A CONSCIOUS
LEVEL, AND EVEN SUBCONSCIOUS, THAT I WAS DOING WHAT WAS BEST,
YET INSTINCTIVELY I KNEW IT WASN’T. I WANTED WHAT I WANTED FOR
PURELY SELFISH AND SELFISH CENTERED MOTIVES. I MISUNDERSTOOD AND
MISINTERPRETED THE THINGS JESUS SAID PERTAINING TO “THE KINGDOM”
AS MOTIVATION FOR MY TAKING THE ACTION. I WAS WRONG; AND THERE
WAS THAT IN ME THAT KNEW IT, BUT I DIDN’T LISTEN.
WHAT CAN I SAY TO YOU THAT WILL BENEFIT YOU MOST FROM MY EXPERIENCE? LISTEN, LISTEN TO THE GUIDANCE FROM YOUR HIGH SELF; STAY CLOSE TO YOUR CHRIST-I AM. YOU CAN HEAR; TO SAY YOU CAN’T HEAR IS AN UNTRUTH AND A COPOUT OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR MAKING THE CHOICES THAT WILL BRING THE DESIRABLE RESULTS FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL CONCERNED!
Become comfortable, relax, take a deep breath. Exhale and take another deep breath as your thoughts turn inward and you become centered. Visualize an energy of red Light centering in the area of your genitals (your reproductive organs). Begin a gentle swirling motion of the red energies throughout this area.
Visualize a newborn infant of your sex; this infant is you. Ask the infant how it feels about life; why it chose to return; what it’s here to learn, accomplish, or complete. Why did it choose the parents as its vehicle for returning? Since it knew the consequences of pain, hurt, anger, fear, and disappointment why did it wander so far astray? You may ask this Infant You whatever questions will clarify any unresolved issues concerning your life.
When you feel complete with this part of the process invite Jesus into your space and ask Him if there are any further communications or realizations for you concerning life in general and your life in particular. You may wish to discuss with Jesus about your purpose as explained by the Infant You. Ask whether or not you’re on purpose, and if not, why not. Ask what you need to do to accomplish what you’re here to learn or do. Take time to complete this communication.
You’re now free to live the life of freedom and abundance as you contemplate the resurrected life of the whole person. Allow yourself some time to experience how that feels; living life from the standpoint of being able to deal with whatever there is to handle; overcoming all obstacles, living successfully and victoriously.
When you are ready, imagine what it would be like without any obstacles to overcome; nothing to deal with — it’s all handled. You are now in a space to live life as an example, as did Jesus: giving service, teaching and healing. You no longer have to struggle to attain and maintain — it is already provided and available. Enjoy this consciousness until you feel ready to move along to the next step.
You may reach the place in consciousness as did Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews, who came to Jesus by night and said, “You are a teacher from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with Him,! To which Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus questioned Him as to how one can be born again, and Jesus replied, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit.
“Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘you must be born anew.’ the wind blows where it will, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with every one who is born of the Spirit.” Nicodemus asked in so many words, “How can this be?” The substance of Jesus reply was, “If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?.. .50 must the son of man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life.”
Ask Jesus any questions you may have concerning these words. When they are clear ask Jesus the question, “What must I do to be born anew?” When you understand His answer visualize the nativity scene — Mary, Joseph, the Christ Child — with the realization, “I am the Christ Child!” I am born anew this day! Affirm these words, “I AM THE CHRIST CHILD! I AM BORN ANEW! I AM TRANSFORMED!”
As the caterpillar is transformed into a glorious butterfly, so are you transformed into your true identity. Now behold your transformed glorious self as you say to yourself, “I KNOW WHO I AM–I AM(NAME) THE CHRIST, OR I AM(NAME)THE CHRIST.” Experience your Transformation. Be aware that YOU ARE TRANSFORMED. When you are ready open your eyes and see!
As Judas is the example of the unregenerate man so Jesus is the example of the regenerate man. There are those who would argue with that saying He is above and beyond that terminology. Nevertheless, I say that Jesus is the way-shower and gives us a path to follow. Did He not say, “Anything I can do you can do better”? His purpose here was to show us it can be done and how.
I won’t endeavor to cover step by step His life as it pertains to ours; others have done it so much more thoroughly. I highly recommend Catherine Ponder’s book, “The Millionaire From Nazareth,” A Godsend in the form of an idea whose time has come. She said it was twenty years in the writing. I say it was eternity in the writing. It could not have been done until the consciousness of the people could receive it! Please read it! The following symbology is from her
Jesus was aware of His true identity, His Christ-self even as we were aware of ours at birth. However, we seem to have forgotten who we are, but He didn’t. That was His mission – to remind us; and He fulfilled it! In being fully aware of His true identity He was also fully aware of His true inheritance as a rich child of a rich Father Who is the source of all! This was symbolized by the opulent gifts presented by the three kings: gold, frankincense and myrrh, representing abundance, pleasantness and healing of all unhappiness and bitterness of the past and present (“The Wise Men’s Christmas Gift To You” pamphlet by Catherine Ponder).
We too as heirs to our rich Father who is the source of all, may at any time claim our rightful inheritance which was with us at our birth had we but realized. It is not too late! We may claim it anytime we are ready and choose to do so — it is awaiting our claim, all wrapped-up in pretty papers and ribbons! Edgar Cayce tells of a dream where he died and went to heaven. St. Peter was showing him about the place and as they passed a huge building Edgar noticed huge stacks of gift-wrapped packages. He said, “What are these?” St. Peter said, “Oh, those are gifts that were ready for people who gave up and short-circuited receiving them by giving up.
We have only touched upon the surface of many complex subjects in this chapter. In some ways it’s like opening Pandora’s Box, but at least it’s open so the contents may be revealed, blessed, and released. We have arrived in the Promised Land. We have achieved our freedom; or if not we know how to attain it. The unlimited supply is all about us; we have but to pluck from the trees of abundance to reach our fulfillment.
The caterpillar has been released from the cocoon and the butterfly emerged as we experienced our Transformation into the realization of our own true identity — our Christ-self. Let us, therefore, go forth to live the Transformed Life.
MESSAGE FROM JESUS
I have come that you may have life everlasting. I have come that you may have life abundantly. I have come that you may live. I have given you all the tools for the transformed life; the prosperous, fulfilled life. My Dears, I cannot live it for you, nor would I! I would not take the joy and adventure upon myself and deny you the privilege and blessing derived from such a journey. It is yours; you have earned it; you have prepared yourself for it! How can I tell you in other words than those I have already used so many times and in so many ways that life is for living; life is for loving; life is for enjoying?
I have told you this, yet others tell you differently. To whom do you listen? The abundant life of freedom and joy experienced in the Promised Land which is all about you, or the bondage and limitation that can be experienced in Egypt, which is also all about you? Yes, it is all here – heaven and earth abound in the realm within us and about us. It is of our own creation! What a surprise this is, yes? Why? Have I not told you over and over that the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Heaven is within? What more can I say, dear ones”
I have given you teachers to say it to you in other words and other ways. Perhaps from them you will listen and hear. The Father speaks through them as he spoke through me; and as he speaks through you! Do you doubt this? Please, My Beloved, do not doubt, but trust in your heart. Trust in that center of love that I implore you to open-up widely as you release the floodgates of damned-up dreams and desires and cravings for Unconditional Love. Let it flow; let it flow. Love is the Kingdom of God; Love is the Kingdom of Heaven — not receiving it, but giving! giving! giving!
Let it flow, My Beloved, let it flow. There is more, infinitely more; there is enough. You will not be left destitute; let it flow, for with the measure you give out is the measure you will receive. My Beloved, why else do you suppose you are traveling this pathway of earth were it not to learn to Love, Love, Love? Is there really anything else? What would you have that money could buy were it not Love and Love alone that you are seeking; that your heart desires at its deepest core? let go, My Beloved, let go. let it flow! let it flow!
I am here with you, My Beloved; I am here with you; I am here!
I AM LOVE! I AM LOVE! I AM LOVE! I AM LOVE!
I AM! I AM! I AM!
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
