Loving Oneness Now
Definition of Psychospiritual Therapy: Psychospiritual therapy, while it utilizes most established therapeutic techniques, squarely places inner spiritual growth at the heart of its practice, goals and philosophy. Much, but by no means all, of the psychospiritual work is done with the client in altered alert trance states, a condition which facilitates therapeutic verbal inner contact with sub-personalities (ego-children), body parts, past-life egos, incorporeal entities, the Higher Self, and with Spiritual Guides and Masters.
An awareness of the functions and functioning of all of these aspects can contribute to the increasing psychospiritual wellness of clients. Ultimately, the objective is that clients come to know they are an eternal Loving Mind (not an ego-body) within the Universal Mind, Now.
of my clients (past and present) are somewhat spiritually-minded
normally-functioning people who want
to grow psycho-spiritually, but who seem stuck. The others are of all kinds: anxiety states,
disorders, severe neurotics, people with illnesses (e.g. cancer, AIDS), manic depressives,
manic aggressives (a classification of my own), multiple personalities (DID), and schizophrenics. They almost
always know the psychospiritual kind of work I do before they come to me.
They are Really all Children of God who do not know Who they Are, but who are
struggling to find out.

They almost always know the psychospiritual kind of work I do before they come to me. They are Really all Children of God who do not know Who they Are, but who are struggling to find out.
I use a very comprehensive variety of integrated techniques in my practice of spiritual psychotherapy, including the more usual ones. I do direct and indirect counseling, guided imagery, relaxation, dream analysis, rational therapy (eliminating cognitive dissonances and distortions), emotional flooding (catharsis), developmental growth (drive differentiation and Jungian archetypal development -- see E02), and regression therapy (to babyhood.)
even more important, I may also do past-life therapy (especially for trauma
cases), as well as regression to womb-state and to the birth process. In working with multiples (DID) and even regular clients I sometimes
carry out depossessions of other entities of several kinds, and often speak with
Guides and Masters and even the client's Higher Self -- always through the actual
mind and voice of the client.
In all my altered state work with clients I "lean over backwards" not
to make any suggestions of any kind. I totally avoid making any suggestions so
that the content of any recalled material cannot be attributed to
memories induced by the therapist. Most of the recalled material and content is
just as much a surprise to me as it is to the client.

the above-mentioned techniques are used appropriately to the client's needs at any particular
moment. This many-faceted therapy is not hit or miss, nor
doctrinaire; it is an integrated system of therapy which is often implemented while the
client is in a deep altered state. Frequently
my therapeutic work is done on a spiritual plane called "The Land of Light"
which acts as a kind of contextual backdrop.

Spiritual Paths: Throughout this work the client is encouraged to be on an everyday spiritual path and I find many clients already are on one (e.g., A Course in Miracles, Yoga, Zen or Tibetan Buddhism, Tao, Sufi, Cabala, etc.,) but no coercion is used. Without the spiritual aspect, therapy is far less successful. As for my own present path, I teach "A Course in Miracles" but not in any doctrinaire or rigid way. Nevertheless, in past decades I have immersed myself successfully in many spiritual paths, all of which lead us to God-Self. The core technique of all these paths is meditation; the core Idea is Truth; the Way is Self-Knowledge and Self-Awareness; and the Task is to uncover, remember and experience our Loving Oneness within Absolute Mind-as-Such. Therefore I do all I can to facilitate this Process of Waking Up in those who come to me for such an understanding. This facilitation is mostly a mutual removal of the psychological blocks, erroneous beliefs, and interference patterns.
Case Histories: (All names, locations, etc., have been changed to preserve anonymity.)
easiest way for me to present this wide variety of material is to illustrate it
through selected case history summaries. Each case history presents one or more facets of psychospiritual therapy. You may find much of this hard to believe because it seems so strange to
humans who are "addicted" to matter and everyday conventional thinking, but I
assure you it is psychologically genuine--and it works!
Past Life -- Greta: Greta was a young social worker who had a beautiful trained voice and a wide range of styles. But, whenever she went on stage, she got severe colic and choking sensations In a regression to early childhood she uncovered the forgotten choking problem--her aunt listening to her older brother singing--then Greta sang too--G. given dime by aunt--G. put dime in mouth and then choked on it--stuck in throat--G. taken to hospital--all remembered and emoted. Then at another time we went to a past life, circa 1900 when Greta was married to an entomologist (bug scientist). She was bathing in the river when she was caught by a crocodile across the waist and killed. She screamed and screamed for several minutes. The full memory of this specific event (together with its catharsis or flooding) cleared up the problem. Six months later Greta was on a successful singing tour in Europe. She also continued on her spiritual path.
Life Relationships and Possession -- Alan:
Alan was a priest with the inquisition in Southern France,
especially the town of Carcassonne. He
tried, and put to death many in the heretic sect called Cathars, or Albigensians,
who believed in meditation and reincarnation. Alan was drowned when his coach turned over while fording a shallow
river. Through extreme guilt, Alan
stayed an earthbound spirit and roamed Europe for 200 years. He
went to London and found a street urchin, Ron, aged five years, and struck a deal with him. Alan
would bring Ron up safely if they could share the urchin's body together. At 15 years
(Ron's age) they went to sea. Caught
by one of Captain Morgan's pirate ships and put to service on board. After two years or so,
Alan complained about the brutality of a flogging (atonement).
He was hanged from the yard-arm
at dawn, but did not die. So he was
overboard and he drowned (again). Alan
then agreed to separate from Ron and go to the Light.
In their present lifetime, Ron is Alan's son, and again Alan has helped Ron
through his young life into adulthood.
Alan's path, during his adult life has always been spiritual.

Multiple Personality (Dissociative Identity Disorder), Ego-Children, Past Lives, Guides, Entities, etc. -- Mary: This multiple personality, who was a brilliant student, was a "gift" to me from the Powers-That-Be so I could learn about all the different beings, Higher Beings and part-personalities who could share one person's life. The following is a short list of the entities and Beings spontaneously uncovered while Mary was in deep altered states. However, Mary could hear her Guides at will, at any time of day.
-- Mary's own Higher Self, a fusion of Jon (male) and Drew (female.)
Satinka -- female Guide, Earth Mother figure.
God -- destructive male archetypal figure (Mexican god)
-- a monk who was Mary's higher spiritual Guide.
Reba -- Mary as a past-life ego-person who lived at the time of Jesus and became her father's surrogate "wife" at an early age, after her real mother died.
-- The Channel of Light to Mary from God.
-- The sacrificial young sister of the Time God.
-- A wise problem-solving Guide who had been a fur trapper two
-- Mary's Master of Masters.
the Shepherd -- A kindly helpful Guide, a male counterpart to
-- Mary's worthy ego-self.
-- Mary's unworthy ego-self.
-- The depressed but brilliant student.
-- A skinless, defenseless, quaking, panic-stricken male inner child.
Gary -- Torrance's father who was the torturer of his son Torrance
-- Mary's Parental Authority System to whom she mostly conformed, and yet
rebelled in different
-- A child of the Time-God who was American Indian and full of potential

spoke to these various "aspects" of Mary's mind for some 18 months during
treatment. We also explored numerous past lives. In
one Mary had been raped in the 16th Century by her school headmaster at
age 12 and had afterwards become a schizoid nun.
during one momentous key session we discovered (and Mary relived) that in
this present life, as a child of five, Mary had been raped by a man of 25
but, because of his threats, she had never told anyone. Instead,
at that age of five, she shattered and became a dissociated multiple. This key
session did not end her present
day problems because, in such cases, the ego-children have to grow up, and mature
and integrate and this can be a gradual process.
We held several integration ceremonies for all the ego-children
orchestrated by Satinka

Lives, in the Womb Experiences, Birthing, Childhood Memory of Rejection --
Anita's main problem was a confusion about life and a continuous deep anxiety
which at times turned to panic. She
was losing her faith in ACIM when she came for therapy.
took her immediately to a between-lives state, where she described herself (as a
Higher Self) picking out (choosing) her parents because they would indirectly, eventually lead
her to a spiritual life -- but first she had many lessons to learn in her new
life as Anita. Intuitively, she knew she would
ultimately carry Peace and Love to all the people with whom she would come into
her loving supervision of the implantation and development of embryo and fetus,
Anita, as her new ego-self, went into the womb around the fourth month of
pregnancy. I asked her what her
parents were saying. "This is
our 13th child and we already have too many. This unborn baby will be yet another mouth to feed, etc." Imagine the feelings of rejection and dejection of Anita on hearing this,
even before she was born! Then
I took her through her birth, which was very easy and peaceful -- her mother had
had a lot of practice! During the first year Anita slept a lot.
As I took the "scanning" process up to between 2 and 3 years of age we found the main
trauma. (Note: I proceed from
between lives to conception, and from conception to adulthood in my scans which
is the natural progression of life. I do this even during re-birthing therapy.)

didn't want to go. My father didn't want to give me away." My
mother felt she would be punished by God if she gave me away, but it took her a
whole month to decide not to do so. This
memory opened up numerous negative events in Anita's infancy and childhood. They thought her
intellectually retarded in school because all the adults in her life told her
everything she did was wrong -- her parents, her teachers, and the priests and nuns.
But, deep down, Anita's Higher Self knew she had a destiny and so by age
30 Anita was already a senior executive in an international company and deep

the Mind of God -- Miriam: Miriam, who was a chiropractor, was not particularly religious, but she went into deep
altered states easily. In one session
after discussing their anxiety and pain with some of her ego-children named
Donny, Len, and Becky, Miriam
slipped spontaneously into a limbo state she called a void. The void was dark, but she was not afraid,
"Because my ego is not there. But it feels good without an ego ... like floating ... there
is something out there I still can't reach. Its incredible, huge, beautiful, peaceful but exciting. I'm just a little piece, and there are many, many pieces. It is white, pure

Experience]. But I

she said, "But what an incredible high..."
saw life in a much wider focus after this experience of the All-That-Is.
She realized that Mind-as-such has many dimensions -- and many mansions.
Possession, Murder and Mayhem -- GABRIELLA: Gabriella was only 19 years, but she had already had a discharge from a Psychiatric Hospital as a full-blown paranoid schizophrenic who heard voices and also wanted to commit suicide -- after she had killed all the doctors! She was constantly plagued with vivid inner hallucinatory "VCR tapes" of rape (mostly happening to a girl-friend.) The psychiatrists had her on Loxitane, Elavil, Cogentin and occasional Ativan. She was now in a halfway house but was quite unable to work because she was very befuddled by her medications. I saw her for one 2-hour session weekly. In an early session she told me that she had been abused sexually by her uncle who had enjoyed sexual parties with Gabriella and his own daughters. This had gone on for years and was not a forgotten memory. Gabriella had liked this activity, but even as a child felt guilty. Her parents never knew. During her teens she had many sexual encounters with men "for the price of getting drunk." But, in the present, the schizophrenia continued unabated; it had developed during adolescence.
some initial difficulty I managed to begin a dialogue with George, who was the entity or
"person" in Gabriella that wished to kill all the doctors. He kept saying his head hurt and
he added that Gabriella belonged to him. He said he would kill me too. I
tried to depossess Gabriella of George, but in the next session he returned.
managed to get George to tell me that his body had died in an automobile
accident when he was 26 years old in the year 1945.
He had found Gabriella when she was 3 years old.
George had a continuous, chronic headache all the time so I told him I
would cure it for him. I touched
his (that is Gabriella's) spiritual Chakra on her forehead, counted to 10 -- and
his headache was gone. At this
point I depossessed Gabriella of George again by getting him to agree to stay in
the Land of Light, but he was to return!
several sessions Gabriella, always in deep altered states, investigated her
childhood and all the sexual and emotional abuse she had suffered. Both parents had beaten her often. Her
brothers had tormented her with hard slaps and nasty names. Her main ego-child was named Tony, and he was
very afraid. I got Gabriella to put all her angers and fears in a spiritual bubble and
to give it to the Holy Spirit (she was raised Catholic). I also told Tony, aged 5, he would grow up two years for each week that
passed. But the inner VCR rape tapes
a subsequent session I asked Gabriella to go to a past life which was associated
with killing. She became terrified and begged me not to send her
there -- but I
gently persisted, comforting her that it would heal her. At one point she put
both her hands tightly around her neck, so I asked if someone were strangling
her. After further resistance even
though in a very deep trance she abruptly sat up and said... "I can see myself cut
up in pieces... It was real."
George suddenly came back. He
spontaneously explained that his
father, Antonio, had brought this prostitute ("slut" was his term) Maria, back to
their apartment in New York in 1943 and had sexual intercourse with her. Antonio left her
alone there and went out, but George came home and found her, and he had
intercourse with her too. Then (to
Gabriella and I) he
admitted has mother had been a "slut" and that, he, George, had
previously had intercourse with his own mother too. He hated his mother for being a "slut" who had been
eventually killed by a cop. Then
George confessed, "I killed Maria... later, that night... I cut her in
pieces... I cut off her head first..."
Perhaps this was why Gabriella had placed her own hands tightly around
her neck. George had then left the
apartment, and when he returned Maria's body had disappeared. He felt his Father, Antonio, may have removed it. George also felt the cops would still be looking for him.
Gabriella was again depossessed of George and, after that session, he never came back from the Land of Light. Gabriella and I continued to work for several weeks on her childhood relationships and on her forgiveness of her parents, brothers, George, and her uncle: "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do." We also went into other significant past lives. Gabriella released a tremendous amount of hatred and fear centered around males, including George, her brothers, her uncle, and her father. Much emotional catharsis was done to process the clearing out of all this fear of males. By now Gabriella had long ago taken herself off all medications after my friendly psychiatrist friend had mapped out a voluntary withdrawal program for her.
beginning to end Gabriella's total time in therapy was less than one year. One year later she happily wrote to me that she was 95% cured, and
several years later she came to see me to say life was great. Gabriella is still studying ACIM and is a long term member of
both A.A. and N.A. She has worked
at a job continuously since her therapy ended -- and says she is in a happy loving
Defiant Child" Meets Her Own Higher Self:
was during the fourth session that we explored her smoking habit. Her ego-child (sub-personality) who loved
to smoke informed me that smoking was an act of defiance against her
mother and had been since she was 14. I
explained that, even in defiance she was under the control of her mother in
reverse. Kay agreed and we explored
all the ways people controlled Kay by pushing her buttons. Kay admitted she was tired of this upside-down control system and then
said she wished to give up smoking because she, Kay, no longer wanted to smoke. It hurt her and those around her. I
then took Kay deep inside herself to meet her own Higher Self.
Higher Self was named Sara, who said she (i.e., the Sara entity now called Kay) was much more than a million years old. She identified herself as Peace, Love and Gentleness both for Kay and
others. Sara agreed she had been
shut out (in Kay) by all the animosity, grief, anxieties, hate, conflicts and
fears, but that now she (Sara) could come out step by step. Kay would have to make adjustments in her ego-mind as this step-by-step
emergence occurred, so that gradually Kay could come to accept Sara's Love and
Peace as her own. Sara indicated
she was both sexes unified, and agreed that Kay had to forgive her mother and
everyone else, thus ending the separateness for which human beings are
then arranged for Kay and Sara to meet personally, right there in the Marble
Grove of Love and Light. After they gave each other a
big Loving hug, I asked Kay to describe Sara to me. Kay used these words to describe Sara:
is hard to describe. She doesn't
look exactly like me. She doesn't really
have a face. There's a sort of...
there's a... she is my height! There's
a... quality about her that is not form. It's not like us, as we know us. It's
more like energy, but its there. She
is warmth, incredible warmth. She
has hair... Her eyes...
Looking into her eyes is like looking Beyond...
She is quite beautiful, but not in the sense that I perceive human
beauty. It is the Light... She has a glow... She
radiates... That is what she
does... She radiates... "
asked, "LOVE and LIGHT?"
pointed out to Kay that Sara was Kay, the Real Kay, and that gradually Sara
would emerge within Kay, until one day Kay would slip inside Sara and become
Sara, be Sara. In the meantime Sara
said she would be close behind Kay all the time in her everyday life, helping her, and
backing her up, all the way. I also
told Kay (as always) she would remember every detail of this session when I awoke her, which
I then did on a count of 1-10.
has continued to feel contented and happy over the ensuing months, even during
an extended visit by her mother... who did not know what to make of this
transformed daughter, one who no longer responded to her button-pushing. To date, Kay has held on to her sunny
disposition -- while Sara, Kay's
Higher Self, continues to emerge.
Human Sacrifice, and a Trickster Entity -- CLAIRE:
The main problem Claire experienced was deep anxiety, and a feeling that at times she was, "Out of it. I do not know what is going on." This was a kind of fugue state. Claire, aged 25, worked as a pharmacist in a laboratory. Her first altered state regression into a past life uncovered one source of her anxiety. Claire was in a natural park-like place with many animals and birds. There were also women present who were dancing as a group holding hands, and Claire was dancing with them.
Claire and the group went into a cave where they covered her with their bodies
so she could not move. Then there
were men outside who were screaming "AOLALIA" over and over. Then others put birds into the cave. It started to rain and she felt very cold. Later, Claire goes out of the cave where she is hugged by one
of the women. Nearby is a rose and
beside the rose is an abyss, an opening in the ground. The men and women ask Claire to jump into the abyss but she
is terrified. The group push her to
the edge, although the woman she had hugged tries to save her. Claire resists jumping, but in the end she is pushed over the edge and
falls... She does not die
instantly. But after a while she
walks away from her body into a beautiful Light of many colors.
Claire went to another more prosaic life as Aolalia on a farm complete with
husband, two children and a big, black dog. Then I decided to investigate as to whether there were any
earthbound entities in Claire. Three were
found, but the first two were minor ones and Claire was soon depossessed of
them. It was the third being who was interesting.
name of this third entity was Juan and he had lived near Madrid in Spain. I asked Juan how long he had known Claire and he answered, "Since she was Aolalia in two lives." Juan had gone into Aolalia in those lives too. I asked him what job he had had back then, and he told me he had been a
Mexican ALCHEMIST who had lived one block from the church in a town named
Moralia. Back then he had
experimented a lot and accidentally poisoned himself. In this
present lifetime Juan had entered (possessed) Claire when she was 13
explained Claire was scared of some of his thoughts, and got very anxious. Sometimes he used her
to do alchemy experiments in the lab where she now worked, but
he said, "She does not know about it," presumably because Juan took
over Claire's consciousness, much like a multiple sub-personality would.
also said, "I sometimes play tricks on her. Several
months ago I hid her little radio, the one she likes to listen to, where she
could not find it. She still has
not found it." I asked where
it was. He replied, "I put it
in one of the empty cardboard cartons in the back part of the lab, near the
bathroom door. It is still
agreed to allow me to depossess Claire of him so he could stay in the Land of
Light and continue his own spiritual growth and eventually get a new body
(through a normal human birth) all of
his own. Of course, that is not the end of the story. Claire and I patiently waited out the weekend until she went to work on
Monday, and YES, the little radio was right there in the cardboard carton, by
the bathroom door, at the back of the laboratory.
After this ONE two-hour session Claire's memory blocks disappeared and her anxiety levels returned to a normal minimum.
could include dozens of additional case histories but these are fairly
representative and will have to suffice.
