COMMENTARY: FIGHTING THE EPIDEMIC
OF FEAR Studies
by psychologists show individuals typically overestimate
risks that are memorable, vivid, or generate fear, while
underestimating more common risks.
The novel coronavirus is a serious threat and we need to
do what we can to "flatten
the curve", but the disease itself is not a threat
to life on Earth. There are many more diseases that we are
already familiar with, that are far more deadly. We need
to prepare for it but not overreact.
Shulte points out, "in many infectious diseases,
the immune system’s reaction to a virus, bacteria,
or other pathogen can cause greater harm to the infected
individual than the pathogen itself. Sepsis is a deadly
example of this phenomenon. Triggered by an infection, the
immune system overreacts, releasing chemicals called cytokines
that make blood vessels become leaky. That can ultimately
reduce oxygen delivery to vital organs, which may cause
organ failure. Sepsis kills
more than 10 million people a year."
We need to take the standard
precautions that are widely advertised, and do what we can
to build up our immune systems. But in times of stress and
change, it is important to stay grounded and remember that
we are spiritual beings having a very temporary human experience.
We are all going to transition - remember there is no death.
But while we are in this incarnation, what really matters,
in the final analysis, is how much love we show to others,
and how we treat them.
A TIMELY REMINDER FROM SILVER BIRCH “An evolved spirit cannot
be afraid at any time, because he knows that there is no
experience that can come to him in any phase of life that
he cannot master, for he is the Great Spirit.
creates its own prison for the soul. You must learn to rise
above fear and not allow its vibrations to hinder you, to
have perfect faith and confidence and trust, to know that
you can stand on your feet and say: 'I am the Great Spirit
and the wind of circumstance cannot shake me. I will rise
triumphant over every difficulty because of the infinite
power which is within my soul'.
You have power over every circumstance. Would you limit
the power of the infinite soul?"
WHY DO WE ALWAYS
QUOTE SILVER BIRCH?
Silver Birch is a high-level spirit teacher
who for 61 years transmitted information through trance
medium Maurice Barbanell. He came through to an established
physical and trance circle that met monthly in the home
of London author and journalist and drama critic Hannan
Swaffer. Silver Birch was one of a number of guides that
came to the circle and was well known and loved by the leaders
of British Spiritualism. He was always patient, consistent,
authoritative, and without ego. His wisdom and eloquence
were undisputed. His words have stood the test of time.
Birch made it clear that he was sent as the spokesperson
for a vast group of high-level spirits "prophets, seers,
sages, wise men of the East and the West, of high and low
estate, philosophers of Greece and Rome, Syria, Chaldea,
Persia and Babylon, mingled with those of later generations
from Italy, France and Germany".
of Silver Birch, first published in 1938, guided
spiritualists during all the years of World War II when
England was threatened with invasion. After a fascinating
foreword by Hannen Swaffer, Silver Birch tells his own story
and answers countless questions, including about life in
the spirit realms.
Like many millions of Spiritualists all over the world,
Wendy and I have found the teachings contained in the
books of Silver Birch to be a revelation. They are a
wonderful guide to the purpose of life and the afterlife.
EXPERIENCER LEARNS THE IMPORTANCE OF SMALL ACTIONS
In May of 1966, 16-year-old Reinee Pasarow of La Crescent,
California, became unconscious following an allergic food
reaction. During her near-death experience Reinee had a
life review in which she had a surprising revelation.
"THE UNRAVELLING - THRIVING IN A CHANGING WORLD"
old paradigms are breaking down, people are waking up, and
they don’t like what has been created while they slept.
This is the first step of shifting consciousness --waking
CONGRATULATIONS, you are officially a part of the shift!
The experiences of the world have filtered into your little
box. You can no longer ignore the plight of your brothers
and sisters. As the unraveling continues, you will begin
to understand that freedom and justice for all is what you
are also seeking for yourself.
We realize the task ahead seems daunting. We remind you
that any step you take to move away from the world built
upon fear and separation will begin to tear away at the
fabric of your life. Know that you are not alone in your
quest. Your brothers and sisters all across the world are
experiencing the shift with you. Be gentle with yourself
and with others."

THE PASSING OF AN INSPIRATIONAL DOCTOR
World-renowned Sydney gynecologist
Dr. Catherine Hamlin died at her home on Wednesday in Addis
Ababa, Ethiopia. She was 96. Dr. Hamlin, together with her
husband, the late Dr. Reg Hamlin, established treatment
centres for women suffering from the debilitating effects
of obstetric fistula. This crippling condition results from
complications in childbirth almost unknown in the West.
Over the past 61 years, more than 60,000 Ethiopian women
have received the life-changing reconstructive surgery for
obstetric fistula, thanks to the Hamlins' dedication. Carolyn
Hardy, chief executive officer of Catherine Hamlin Fistula
Foundation, said on Thursday "To say Catherine was
a remarkable woman is an understatement. In our eyes, she
was a saint." Below is Oprah's tribute to her work.
