A Woman Who Communicates With Non-Earthly Beings. What Is She Tapping Into?

She teaches her clients to “Dream big dreams. Determine and define them. Create infrastructure to bring them through. And share them, however you will, without fear.” Anna Hughes is a master healer and spiritual teacher who amongst other things, works as a channel, enabling the energy of Light Being The Nazareine to communicate His messages with all those willing and open to listening. Controversy surrounds the concept; here Anna shares some of her feelings on their work together and her vision for a better future.

Part of the work you do includes channelling The Nazareine. Can you explain who this Being is and what exactly is channelling?

The Nazareine is a Being of Light. I experience and communicate him as the energy of Unconditional Compassionate Love. Channelling is when this Consciousness expresses through me and as I have no memory of what is said, it gives clients the opportunity to ask questions and gain answers that are totally private. Each conversation is recorded so the client can listen to it again as often as they need. Each time they listen, they will hear something new, or expressed differently.

To have clarity and answers, to know that each one is not walking their life journey alone makes a huge difference in many people’s lives.

When did you first become a channel for The Nazareine, how did it happen and how did you realize what it was that was happening to you?

I have been channelling for nearly 30 years although without giving the energy a name. The name of The Nazareine came through to me in a meditation in 2007. Pretty much anyone who comes in contact with this form of energy loves it, including myself.

What does it feel like when you are channelling?

I go deep into an inner space, and allow things to take their natural course. Spirit comes through and gives information, teaches whoever answers an inner call to be present. Usually The Nazareine will speak for a few minutes and then open the floor to questions. If it’s a group situation, then we ask for questions to be general ones about life. When people are in private sessions then obviously they can receive answers on whatever they like, general life, work, relationships, their work situation or what to do about corporate decisions.

When you are channelling the Nazarine, your voice noticeably changes. Are you aware of this happening and how do you feel when you listen back on the recording?

I am told that there are many changes in addition to my voice. My body language and facial expressions also change. When I listen back to recordings my first impression is the amount of love that comes through. A few weeks ago for the first time we videoed me channelling him, when I watched that afterwards I was struck by the depth of love and compassion, how much kindness that came through. He’s also quite funny at times, encouraging us to take ourselves less seriously. Audiences often laugh a lot at group situations, through this perspectives shift and people find this to be liberating too. After each group session the love in the room is so tangible you can almost touch it with your hand. People often stay on afterwards, to discuss what was said, what it meant to them; how they will take it forward, just to be together in this sort of community. It’s hard to leave!

Does this work have a basis in any particular spiritual doctrine or religion?

For me, spirituality can take many different forms: it’s about expression of our inner selves, about inspiration, freedom, acceptance, truth, harmony, love, tolerance, sharing, clarity, strength and all the other values that we want to have more rather than less of in our lives. At the same time it’s about all of us being human, together.

Each of us can express our own inner spirit in any form we choose, through dance, art, song, teaching, healing, gardening, cooking, design, being a parent or through our work, whatever that feels right to you in any moment and brings you and others joy.

The Nazareine gives teachings and tools on how to achieve this, how people can bring through their visions, deal with their challenges, gives them a wider view of a bigger picture and are able to make more-informed decisions to move on, move through, let go, achieve, whatever they need.

Above all channelling The Nazareine is about assisting people to come together and celebrate themselves, life and each other’s differences. Life is intended to be joyful, we spend a lot of our lives at work and we need to be fulfilled in this area too. Relationships can be the most challenging things in people’s lives, because they reflect ourselves, and how we relate is how our children will relate in their lives too and so on and so forth.

I don’t consider myself to be particularly spiritual, religious or anything at all. In fact, I don’t care at all for doctrine, there’s a very fine line between that and dogma, and the need to convert people in terms of right and wrong, good and bad, light and dark!

1.

Do you think you are the only channel for The Nazareine and why do you think he chose you specifically?

It is only me because of how my energy body is calibrated. I’m one of a kind, just like everyone else!

I never thought to ask him why I am his channel, for me it’s always been a simple acceptance. I feel immensely privileged by this because of the results I see from the work around me. I work internationally and each culture is different, but the response is the same. People want to come home to themselves, to feel peace, to feel heard, valued, love and supported. They want to know what’s happening in their lives, how to heal conflict, how to move on, how to achieve, how to guide their children to make the best lives for themselves, how to live in love and community, in harmony with nature, how to stay well. These values are universal. To be welcomed the way I am in each community I travel to, see people’s response to the work we essentially do together is heart-warming for me, something that I always cherish and never take for granted.

Is he with you all the time, and who is it that controls when he comes through with a message for you to convey to others?

He’s with me all the time – I just have to tune in and ask questions, either in meditation or just by sitting still. No-one controls anything, it’s all done by invitation and acceptance (or not.)

Each person has their own inner wisdom, intuition or higher self. To access it though you have to slow down, rushing around with your nose in technology, your to-do lists running in your mind all the time will not help you connect to your inner being. You need to slow down, give yourself some space, see yourself in your own light and be able to breathe to receive your own messages. That’s 5% of it. The remaining 95% is to know that your own answers are accurate. That’s where speaking with The Nazareine is effective too, in addition to answering questions, he also confirms what people already know. Then, stress dies down, they remain peaceful inside because their inner vision has been validated, and they can then just get on with it.

How else do you use your channelling abilities to benefit others?

People often need clarity on what’s happening in their lives, these ones receive answers; and some also need strategy to change life or work situations/challenges. Others come because they need healing, either for physical or emotional afflictions. Still others come because they love the energy and want to grow in that.

We work a lot with death as well, both for people who are destined to cross over as well as for their families. Sometimes I bring messages through for friends and relatives. Speaking with The Nazareine or working through the exercises with me gives many people a lot of comfort, most of all, the ability to move on, with lovely memories in their hearts.

I strategise a lot for divorce and employment cases, many of these are emotionally violent because energy is high and hurt people hurt people. A lot of these are karmic so we have to go right back, not to any specific life, to the themes in those soul journeys that have caused the this-life situation, harmonise them and see where the energy falls after that for the next step.

Many of my clients have big corporate jobs, huge responsibilities and have to make decisions that affect hundreds, sometimes thousands of people. They speak with The Nazareine to know or confirm which way to take their businesses, how to resolve boardroom conflict, that sort of thing.

For everyone who comes, though, I ask for a commitment to their healing or their growth, it’s not just a one-off or quick fix. They are given life-affirming, life-and-career-changing strategies that are deeply connected with their soul journeys, spiritual contracts with both themselves and other people, their karma and the creative process, all done in the energy of love. In energy work, if you don’t commit to it like everything else the shift will not be permanent.

Do you charge for these channelling sessions and, as the message is coming from The Nazareine and not from you, do you feel lit is moral for you to profit from his messages or to charge others to listen to him speak?

The key thing here is about exchange of value. I’m running a practice to enrich my clients’ lives and businesses and my priority has always been to contribute much more to bring more value, not for myself, but for my clients. I don’t see this as profit rather, as continual re-investment to further expand the distribution of the work.

IMG_6376

Channelling is a very controversial subject as there is no real way of proving or disproving the authenticity of the messages or the concept as a whole. What would you say to skeptics or non-believers?

Everyone has their own inner knowing, so don’t be afraid to follow your heart and you will never lose your way. Choose too, to live in the spirit of acceptance, harmony and harmlessness with all-that-is, by this I mean the nature of life around you, and this will be the essence of your life too. Life has to be right – for you. Feel it to know it and then just get on with it. As long as you are living your own authentic life, that’s the only thing that matters.

Can you relate to people feeling doubt about the subject of channelling, and did you ever struggle to accept what you were experiencing yourself?

I feel we don’t have to agree in order to respect each other’s journey. For me that’s harmony and if more people were to live this too, we’d likely have less conflict around us.I’ve never struggled with this part of my life experience. It’s always felt like a natural part of me.

Take what’s right for you, and run with it. You’ll never regret this. It’s about what you put in, not what you take out.

When you listen to these messages, you need to listen with your heart. Then you will feel whether they are true or not, for you. That’s wisdom, defined at many different levels and you become the leader of your life, rather than the other way around. How wonderful is that?

Marianne Williamson Admits “The System Is More Corrupt Than I Knew”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Marianne Williamson stated in an interview on Fox and Friends that she did not realize the political system was as corrupt as it is.

  • Reflect On:

    This is an important revelation of how leaders often don't quite see the full truth of our system at hand. Through them and their experience, we can learn a lot about what is truly going on. Is it time to let go of the systems we have?

About a week ago Marianne Williamson told the New Yorker, I know this sounds naïve, but I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this.” In a segment I did on CETV, I discussed the fact that Williamson is doing a great job of bringing a bit more of a conscious conversation into the mix here, which is very important, but seems to not quite understand what politics is really about and how things function in our world.

In my article about this statement I stated:

Some have suggested that Marianne already knows these truths, and she may, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she is only uncovering these things now. I say this as I belong to a group that communicates regularly that contains many high profile conscious industry leaders like Williamson and other big authors, speakers etc. Many of them are great with spirituality but seem to struggle to see how politics truly functions. I have witnessed this first hand and this is why I’m so passionate about what I do as I feel bringing together both personal transformation and hard truth is imperative.

Some felt that my analysis was off and that Williamson is just ‘playing naive,’ but to me, this did not feel true nor did it seem to be the case. While some might view this as an unimportant detail, it’s very important as for society to truly begin to shift we must not only personally transform but also realize the true nature of the world we live in.

As outlined in the CE Protocol, the formula I built to help awaken and shift the masses, the very first step is Breaking The Illusion about our programmed reality and understand what’s truly going on. From there, personal transformation becomes key.

Williamson Admits She Was Unaware

Here we are a week later and Williamson has stated what I observed in my previous segment, she did not quite realize how corrupt our political system truly is. In an interview on Fox and Friends Williamson stated:

advertisement - learn more

“I would say that I feel that I’ve learned that the system is even more corrupt than I knew and people are even more wonderful than I hoped,

I want to state this isn’t about picking on anyone as much as it is about understanding the importance behind seeing the full picture of the change that needs to take place here. For 10 years now I have built CE to include both personal transformation and truth seeking for the reason that either one of those topics on their own doesn’t create the change we all know is possible in our hearts.

I’ve seen many ‘spiritual leaders’ still deeply support the dysfunctional nature of our systems because they believe there is truth to them when in reality they belong to a consciousness we are shifting away from.

Our political system is built and exists within a system designed for a very limited state of consciousness, some call this 3D consciousness. The goal isn’t to shift our political system, it’s to let it go. Collectively we are shifting and the new state of consciousness emerging doesn’t support the political system at hand. Hence why the chaos around it is increasing, because it’s acting as a mirror for us to see how it doesn’t resonate with our emerging consciousness.

It’s like trying to install Windows on a Mac or vice versa, the systems aren’t designed for the operating system. Humanity is faced with a challenge of ‘letting go of the old,’ not trying to fix the old.

In a brand new segment of The CE Show I did on YouTube and CETV, I discuss Marianne’s latest comments and what I feel we all must realize as we move forward in this journey of shifting ourselves and our world.

The CE Show airs multiple times per week on CETV. Membership proceeds from CETV go towards supporting our journalism and future broadcasts. You can start a free 7 day trial here.

The Takeaway

I feel that we have become addicted to the systems of a state of consciousness that we are moving away from. The choice is up to us, we stop resisting and holding onto things of the old, move through the process of watching these old systems fall away, or we continue to fight tooth and nail under the belief that we must hold up the old systems, and suffer along the way.

Ask yourself within, do you truly feel that this is about changing our current political system to be more open and evolved? Or is it about letting go of the rigidity of our current systems and creating new ones that are birthed from a  new state of consciousness, not one that is centuries old…

Full Moon In Pisces: Navigating Ideals

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Pisces which will be exact at 4:33am Universal Time on September 14th 2019. It will appear the fullest on the night of the 13th for most of the world and on the night of the 14th for the Far East, Australia, and New Zealand.

This is the peak of the Lunar cycle which began two weeks prior with a New Moon in Virgo. The energies of it build up as the Moon increases its light and are strongest in the days before and after. However, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks.

Full Moon’s are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Pisces and Sun in Virgo. It can reflect either a conflict or integration of both signs. We can feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Virgo side and others expressing the Pisces side.

Pisces is associated with sensitivity, compassion, creativity, and oneness. It is spiritually conductive, mystical, energy oriented, dreamy, flowy, imaginative, idealistic, and empathic. Negatively, it can be delusional, lazy, intoxicated, deceptive, confused/confusing, elusive, flaky, and lack critical thinking. Pisces energy is the least compatible with the mundane world and is associated with escapism in its many forms.

Virgo is about productivity, duties, service, physical health, cleanliness, and purity. It is organized, conscientious, skillful, diligent, efficient, analytical, detailed, and practical. Negatively, Virgo energy can also be overly critical, too cautious, fault-finding, irritable, discriminating, and overly perfectionist.

Full Moon Aligned with Neptune in T-Square with Jupiter and Mars

This Full Moon is close to Neptune which has many of the same qualities of Pisces that were mentioned above. It is viewed as a modern ruler of that sign and it amplifies its energies even more so during this period. Neptune is also associated with glamour, romance, and addiction. It has a dissolving, flooding, and watery energy that doesn’t comprehend boundaries.

Neptune is completing its last of three squares with Jupiter in Sagittarius which will be exact on September 21st and will be strong into the following week. It began last January and peaked again this past June. At best, this can be an expansive period in a spiritual, creative, or compassionate way.

However, it can also be a time of confusion or lack of discernment around beliefs, ideologies, education, and teachers. It can also be a time in which we become aware of us being like that previously. We can be more excessive when it comes to how we express Piscean/Neptunian energies mentioned above.

At the time of the Full Moon, Mars in Virgo is also involved in this configuration along with the opposition of the Sun and Moon, forming a T-square aspect. This can be good for asserting ourselves towards our ideals or with a different Jupiter-Neptune approach (mentioned above). However this can also make our actions scattered, less assertive/direct, and make it harder to apply ourselves with practicality.

Full Moon Sextile Pluto Near Saturn and South Node, Saturn Going Direct

This Full Moon is in a tight sextile with Pluto which is near Saturn and the South Node. This could trigger some of the themes of the previous Lunar Eclipse (that is still reflecting this period) in a more harmonious way. Purging aspects of our past that are getting in the way of us moving forward. This can help to facilitate empowerment through some sort of release or transformation.

Saturn will be finishing its retrograde on September 18th and will move towards its final conjunction with the South Node which will peak at the end of the month and early October. This energy was also strong in mid Spring and part of it in early Summer.

Saturnian themes get amplified and we can be dealing with limitations, obstacles, restrictions, or perhaps issues around boundaries. We may feel a need to make changes around responsibilities, commitments, career, and structures in our lives. Similarly to the last Lunar Eclipse, there can be a sort of ending playing out around how an area of our lives is being expressed.

Full Moon Opposing Mercury and Venus Conjunction As They Change Signs

At the time of this Full Moon, Mercury and Venus are in a conjunction at the very end of Virgo, (Mercury’s sign). They will then be moving into Libra (Venus’ sign) in the hours following with the Full Moon triggering after it begins to wane.

This can be a time of heightened interactions, catching up with friends and other relationships. While it is in Virgo it could lean more towards its themes connected to work, service, fault finding, etc. For some people there can be a feeling of some sort of urgency.

After this conjunction moves into Libra, especially a day after the Full Moon,  it becomes more pleasant, social, and creative. Our interactions can be more harmonious, diplomatic, and less critical. We can more easily see both sides to something, find balance, and a great time to discuss relationship matters.

As a result of both of these planets transitioning near the same time, some people may experience some sort of significant shift in other areas of their lives within a few days following the Full Moon.

Things To Consider During This Period

How can you better balance the mundane aspects of life with your ideals, creativity, or spirituality? How have your beliefs been impacted this year and what is the conclusion to your experiences? Is it possible that you may have been confused about some aspects of newly or previously acquired perspectives?

What themes are coming up for you now that have been playing out since last April? What do you need to release? What changes do you need to make when it comes to your work, responsibilities, commitments, structures, or boundaries?
These are just some examples of what could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out. If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime after the peak of the Full Moon when it begins to wane until the next New Moon in two weeks. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on September 14th at 4:33am Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Marie Palmer Recounts Her Escape From The ‘Children Of God’ Sex Cult In New Book

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Marie Palmer recounts her escape from the 'Children of God' cult and the long journey of healing she went through afterwards in her book 'The Gift of Will.'

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see that one of the keys to our own liberation from the past is forgiveness?

Marie Palmer did not choose to be part of the ‘Children of God’ cult that was founded in California in 1968 by a former Christian pastor named David Brant Berg. She was born into it. And as such, her entire worldview was founded on the inexorable indoctrination and brainwashing that was used. In itself this is even more tragic than the plight of those hippies like her father that had joined the movement as adults, and who believed, ironically, that they had found a path of greater liberation and truth.

Marie was brought up as a child in an environment that on the one hand promoted an unhealthy lack of boundaries, but in other ways was dangerously restrictive. The toxic and twisted principles that emerged from the mind of founder David Berg were laced with enough pseudo-validation from Christian scripture to convince many lost and downtrodden souls that they were actually on the right path to God and salvation–in fact the ONLY true path, for many of its devotees.

What has emerged over time, marked by the testimony of ex-members like actress Rose McGowan and the tragic murder-suicide of Ricky Rodriguez, whom Berg dubbed ‘Davidito’ and was grooming as the heir-apparent to his throne, is that the psychological and emotional disorientation and trauma brought upon children born into this cult was so extreme that it was difficult or impossible for many of them to survive in the world, let alone establish a normal life.

Marie Palmer has written a book entitled ‘The Gift of Will,’ which explores the impact of the brainwashing of the ‘Children of God’ cult on her personally, her escape from the cult, and the long and difficult journey she has been on to overcome the trauma and confusion she had been beset with. It was after reading this book that I felt it would be worthwhile for CE to go down to Oregon to talk to Marie in person so that we could provide a full 4-part interview of her story for our members on CETV. You can watch it when you sign up for a free 7-day trial HERE.

The ‘Children Of God’ Cult

Marie was able to escape from the cult as a teen, out of an intense and very real fear of getting pregnant, and an inner rebelliousness that she didn’t really understand or get a handle on until much later. Having now been out of the cult for decades, Marie has been able to see in retrospect how the emergence and rapid popularity of the cult was likely a product of the times founded on some positive intentions, at least initially:

“Maybe it started as a sincere desire to help the lost hippie generation. Maybe it was his obsession with the Bible and his evangelical background that gave him a platform from which to easily build upon. Maybe it was timing. He believed he could create a new type of hippie culture that still held itself true to the ideals of freedom and free love but in the context of following the representation of Jesus in the Bible. He wanted the security of knowing his ideas were based on something real and true. Free love for the sake of free love was fun but flighty. Free love in the name of Jesus Christ–there was everlasting power in that.”

“I can see how that era created opportunity for its youth to find peace and solace in the form of spirituality. I can see how being considered an outcast could be enticing, especially one that had purpose, was following the creator. They could be dropouts and still feel a sense of comradery, family, have a place to call home. Mo provided a way for these lonely youth to be crazy, wild and revolutionary, to burn their old ideas along with their bras, to be free from drugs and street life but hold true to their inner rebel against what they called “the system” and he created this utopia in the name of Jesus.”–The Gift of Will, pp 56–57

However, it seems clear that the basic principles that the ‘Children of God’ cult was founded on morphed over time to accommodate greater control and the sexual predispositions of founder David Berg and his inner circle. One particularly effective vehicle for indoctrination was the famed ‘Mo letters,’ (‘Mo’ being short for Berg’s moniker ‘Moses David’) which often used vivid cartoon graphics portraying sexuality to draw one’s attention and drive the message home.

The way in which sexuality was portrayed certainly had a lot of appeal to adult members of the hippie movement who were convinced that their freedom in relation to sexuality was bringing them closer to God and to their community. In the early years, the technique of ‘Flirty Fishing,’ where women would go out and recruit men into the organization through openly inviting them to have sex, was highly successful, bringing hundreds of thousands of men into them movement. The justification for this, as seen in the Mo Letter illustration below, was that the ends justified the means, and the end was supposedly to bring more people in to experience the ‘Love of God.’

Fear And Wrath

Ultimately, though, power is the name of the game, and David Berg’s personal motivations were far from ‘unselfish, pure sacrificial love.’ As the cult grew, more and more emphasis was put on the need for people to stay in the cult, and that meant using fear and the wrath of God to dissuade people from considering leaving the organization, with quotations cherry-picked from the Bible to garner legitimacy.

One method of control was the systematic suppression of worldly knowledge. In fact, a general tenet of the cult was that anything ‘worldly’ was evil. In this clip from our interview, Marie Palmer explains how as a child she really got no formal education, and had no idea about how the outer world worked. She was only ‘schooled’ in the cult’s indoctrination, which preached that children should trust and obey their elders and not ask questions:

Watch the full 4-part interview of Marie’s story on CETV by starting a free 7 day trial HERE.

As she mentions, young girls in the cult were expected to share themselves with older men who pursued them, as well as providing for those ‘in need’ of intimacy and comfort, under the guise that the whole community was ‘in this together’ and sex should have no boundaries. It wasn’t as though they were violently forced to have sex within the cult, but the psychological pressures, amid efforts to normalize sex between children and adults, led to countless sexual encounters that were undoubtedly traumatic and a source of complete disorientation for the young members:

I know that kids experiment with their sexuality when they are young, usually it’s with kids their own age. There are no words to explain how confusing it is when you are a child that’s expected to experiment sexually with adults. They are your role models. They have all the power. The power to shame you. To discipline you. To give you grace. To provide for you. To give you direction. Every child has the innate desire to please those who rule over them. Disappointing our parents and guardians is a hard thing to face. This makes children ideal victims for abusers.” —The Gift of Will, (p. 65)

Perhaps David Berg did not initially set out to create an organization that actively and openly practiced pedophilia. But the reactions of young members such as Davidito stand as a sobering testament to the volatile and damaging impact of such practices. Davidito had a burning rage against the nannies who were both his guardians and his sexual partners, a rage that was immortalized in this confessional video he made just before his murder/suicide that lays bare his deep resentment and hopelessness.

If there is any debate remaining as to whether it is healthy for children to have any kind of sexual relationships with adults, which some powerful forces have slowly tried to normalize in society, it is laid to rest with the testimony of brave survivors who were brought up in the ‘Children of God’ cult like Marie Palmer.

Healing

What is remarkable and also most important about Marie Palmer’s story is that she has found a way to heal herself from her past. Going through a long stretch after escaping from the cult in which she had absolutely no sense of self or understanding about how to deal with the rage, confusion, depression or sorrow that followed her around constantly, she eventually developed a great hunger for knowledge and for learning. What was especially exciting for her was to learn about spirituality and the Divine in ways that were liberating rather than restrictive. In this way, she could come to grips with the flaws in the Berg philosophy and let go of its influence. Further, she learned forgiveness as the only true way to reconcile the past:

Many religions, especially patriarchal ones, teach that we are either good or evil. And, they teach us further that if we aren’t submissive to this strand of teaching – the cross, the blood, and outside source bringing redemption – we are fatally flawed, crippled from the cradle to the grave.

By understanding and practicing Buddhism, I’ve been able to detach myself from the concept of good versus evil. I’ve been able to study the mechanisms that make my soul tick. I’ve been able to accept that as a human being, I experience light and shadow and it’s all OK.

Sometimes the light may blind me. Sometimes the shadow may darken my horizon. Regardless I am comprised of both; we all are. So, for me, there is no redemption by blood. There is no sense of retaliation or shame projected onto us by any God. Just as there is no need for retaliation for my experiences as a child. I was a victim of the shadows. But, I was graced with the ability to find and choose the light. —The Gift of Will, (p. 142)

The Takeaway

Marie’s journey reminds all of us that only through forgiveness is there liberation from the past. What she has accomplished is inspiring, because she has so much more to forgive than most of us. And she sees that once we are willing to forgive those who had the most power over us, those who caused us the most suffering, something opens up that can change our overall perception forever.

Once I decided to forgive my parents, I could see clearly to forgive just about everyone in the world. I began to see the world through the eyes of compassion, mercy, and Grace. I was also able to forgive myself for not being a better sister to my brother, and all the other naïve and ignorant things I have done to others and myself. I was able to begin the journey of loving myself. To have the upmost compassion for myself and respect for my own identity.” —The Gift of Will, (pp. 155-156)
