What Happens After You Die?

On May 25, 1979, American Airlines Flight 191 took off from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. As the plane rolled down the runway, its left engine broke off.

The aircraft crashed less than a mile from the runway, killing all 258 passengers, 13 crew, and 2 people on the ground.

At the time I was a commercial pilot and, naturally, was riveted by this tragic event.

There was a trailer park near the crash site. Immediately after the crash, trailer park residents started reporting strange events.Read more

Coronavirus Protection

I don’t pay much attention to the mainstream news media. Therefore, when a reader sent us a question about spike proteins, I didn’t know what they were. So we researched it.

Here’s the question:
What does Spirit say about how to protect ourselves who have not been (vaccinated) from the “shedding” of spike proteins from those that have been (vaccinated)?

Spirit

The simple answer to our reader’s question is you do not need protection.

You are eternally safe in the arms of your Father/Mother God.Read more

Anger: It’s Time To Let It Go

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 4

In our modern world there is, arguably, more anger on many fronts than in recent memory.

A reader sent us these thoughts:
“I ask as I struggle, after being wronged by others, to let go of anger and move on to focusing on the joy/challenge of living the rest of my life. How do you deal with injustice and find peace?

Spirit

You have never been “wronged” by anyone. Every relationship, every circumstance you have ever experienced in this or any other lifetime is purely a co-creation when it involves others.Read more

The Power of Kindness

In today’s crazy, chaotic world, it can be hard to show kindness to those folks around us. But it always pays off, one way or another, whether we see the results or not. Kindness is true power.

Spirit

You often feel powerless in your lives, especially when you witness such events as you see in your mainstream news media almost daily. After all, they specialize in the “bad stuff.”

But is bad stuff all there is on your planet? Of course not.Read more

About Prana and Food, Follow-Up

Question:
What is the most effective way to take in prana (God energy)?

Spirit

Prana is all around you. You can’t avoid it. It is God energy. You enhance the intake of it when you pay conscious attention to it—when you deliberately seek to enhance it to energize your physical and mental well-being. You can even heal, yourself and others, instantly.

The most effective way to take in prana varies with the individual. You have to discover this for yourself. Focusing on your breathing is one way.Read more

About Prana and Food

posted in: Blog, channeling, mind body soul | 4

Question:
If you take in prana (God energy) the right way, do you need food any longer?

Spirit

When you bring prana, or God energy, into any substance you put into your physical bodies, the substance cannot harm you.

We don’t advise you to go without food, but you can reduce the amount you take in. It has to be a conscious activity. If you believe you must have a big breakfast. or eat three meals a day (a common mis-belief), then you do that.Read more

The Power of Intention

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 0

Spirit and Berna had a recent conversation about intention. Her question to them was Can you tell us more about the concept of intention?

Spirit

It is a powerful concept, a powerful tool in your spiritual toolbox. Your intention is everything, because with your intention you can literally change the path of your life. Nothing can be achieved without intention, a clear and powerful intention.

Any time you form an intention (for example, if you want to heal your body of something) you first form the intention to accomplish the healing.Read more

God and Science

posted in: Blog, channeling, spirituality | 4

One of our favorite scientists is Carl Sagan. Some people have described him as an atheist. But he denied that label.

Spirit

We define love as simply a choice – a choice to recognize the divinity in all beings (all that is). First, though, what is all that is?

“All that Is” is another term for the Great Spirit—God—Goddess, or whatever other names you want to use for the supreme being. We like “All That Is.”

All That Is is all that exists.Read more

Wildfires

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 2

Wildfires are usually highly destructive forces. This is obvious these days in the American state of California, and other parts of the American and Canadian West.

What do wildfires have to do with spirituality? 

Spirit

Fire can be a very destructive force. That’s obvious in what’s going on today with the wildfires. But fire is also a cleansing and healing force.

Part of the reason these so-called natural disasters happen is to counteract or to cleanse, the effects of harmful human energies on the planet today.Read more

Sexuality and Religion

posted in: Blog, channeling, mind body soul | 4

Father James Martin is an American Jesuit priest. He’s a strong advocate for the LGBT community.

Lately, Father Martin has come under fire from conservative elements within his own Roman Catholic Church.

I graduated from a Jesuit college. The Jesuits are sometimes noted for their more liberal (humanitarian) approach to Christianity than other elements of the Roman church, including The Vatican.

Recently, Father Martin criticized his church in the new documentary, Building a Bridge, featured at the Tribeca Film Festival.Read more

Suddenly There Is Winter

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 5

We adapted this week’s post from a piece we wrote many years ago. As often happens, the subject is as timely now as it was when we wrote the piece.

Spirit

These are times of momentous changes on your planet. At one moment, you are enjoying the roses of summer. Then the roses fade and their petals fall to the earth. The trees change colors and their leaves fall to the earth. Your brothers and sisters, the animals of the earth, begin to hibernate.Read more

The Insanity of War

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 0

Michelantonio “Tony” Vaccaro was a World War 2 United States Army soldier and photographer. He survived the horrors of that war and is now 98 years old.

Tony, the son of Italian immigrants, speaks eloquently of war’s insanity and inhumanity. Accompanying his graphic photo of a German soldier his army unit had just killed, he had this to say:

It reminds me of the tragedy of mankind. He’s not a German. He’s a human being….We are humans. And nothing else.

Spirit

As Tony says, “We are humans.Read more

Contacting Your Spirit Guides

posted in: Blog, channeling, mind body soul | 1

A while ago, a reader asked us this question:

How can I contact my spirit guides, or know when they’re there?

That’s a good question, one which many folks have.

Spirit

Your spirit guides are always there. They are part of you, and can never leave you.

You’ve probably heard that all humans are one with one another. But, beyond that, they are one with Creator or God—or whatever term you prefer for divine energy.

There are limitless ways your spirit guides can connect with you.Read more

God, The World, and You

posted in: Blog, channeling | 0

One of our favorite spiritual teachers is the Franciscan priest, Richard Rohr. In one of Father Richard’s recent messages, he said:

“When you can see Christ in all things (including yourself!), you will see and live differently. I’ve spent my life trying to remind people of their inherent belovedness, and I pray that our work at the Center for Action and Contemplation has played a role in helping you to see, feel, and experience the hope of your own chosenness in God.Read more

Teach Only Selfishness

Today we’re revisiting a post we wrote years ago.

Spirit

How often have you heard it said “Think only of others.” – “Love others unconditionally.” – “Put others before yourself.” – “Be of service to others.” – etc. etc.?

Those are noble-sounding sentiments. But they will guarantee you a life of misery and joylessness.

Many times, you’ve heard us, and others, say you cannot serve another unless you first serve yourself, you cannot love another if you do not first love yourself.Read more

Compassion and Connection

Nothing you can ever do or say – or even think – can be done in a vacuum, if you will. Everything – and every thing – you do, say, or think affects the entire planet, quite literally – and even goes beyond the boundaries of your planet.

Each of you is connected to all that is. That is not simply a hypothetical concept or theory. It’s a fact – even when you are feeling lost, alone, isolated you are still intimately connected to all that is.Read more

What Do You Want To Do With Your Life?

In my younger years, the adults around me often asked what I wanted to do with my life. Sound familiar? Most of our readers probably had similar experiences.

Of course, the adults expected you to have your sights set on something that was going to bring you money, fame, and good fortune.

Mostly money. Money was typically the main focus. It didn’t matter if you actually enjoyed the work you were doing, as long as it created money. Our Western society is obsessed with material things, especially money.Read more

Is the Virus Vaccine Poisoning You?

One of our readers recently wrote us asking about the possible poisonous effects of the virus vaccine. Since many people have the same concerns, we’re including parts of his letter in today’s post, with his permission.

The following is a discussion between Berna and Spirit about the letter, slightly edited.

Berna
Johnny and I have been talking about this subject many times.

It started when I started to doubt whether to get the vaccination or not, for various reasons. In my case, I had contrasting thoughts.Read more

What Did You Give Up For Lent?

Berna and I grew up in religious traditions where “giving up” something for Lent was expected. Many of you probably did too. The idea of sacrifice was “built in” to religious practices.

According to Wikipedia,The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for Easter through prayer, mortifying the flesh, repentance of sins, almsgiving, simple living and self-denial.”

Spirit

One of Johnny’s and Berna’s favorite spiritual teachings is A Course in Miracles, as some of you know.Read more

Where Is God?

In troubled times, have you ever wondered where God is? Often, it seems, He/She is nowhere to be seen. We feel lost and lonely.

Sound familiar?

I love these words of Sir Anthony Hopkins:

“The only reason we don’t see God is because we’re always looking for him.” (Usually in the wrong places.)

Spirit

In all our years of working with Johnny (and now Berna also), one of the saddest complaints we’ve heard is “How can there be a God who created this world of woe and pain?”Read more

Daylight Saving Time

As you probably know, so-called daylight saving time has begun in most of the United States. It began a bit later in Europe.

I have never been a fan of the twice-yearly time switch. I know the arguments for and against it. But it never made much sense to me. In fact, I love these words from a wise old Native American:

Only a white man would believe you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket.Read more

Lessons I Learned From A Bar of Soap

Well, here we go again with another of our weird titles.

Many years ago, my fourth grade teacher had us do a brief experiment for her science class.

Two students stood facing each other. One closed her eyes. The other held a strong-smelling bar of soap under the nose of the student with the closed eyes.

The teacher instructed the student with the closed eyes to let the class know when the other student had removed the bar of soap.

After a minute or so, she said it had been removed.Read more

Respect For Others’ Opinions

We’re living in a contentious era of disrespect and disregard for others’ opinions, especially if they do not agree with ours. Do you have a hard time talking with someone who does not agree with you?

Spirit

Although this is rapidly changing, many of you still struggle with speaking with those whose ideas, lifestyles, and opinions are different from yours.

Today we’re asking you to ask yourselves why this is. And what you can do about it. We’ll give you a few of our ideas here.Read more

The Loch Ness Monster

In one of Berna’s recent question-and-answer sessions with Spirit, she asked about the famous Loch Ness monster of Scotland. That probably doesn’t seem like a very “spiritual” subject. But let’s wait and see.

Berna

Johnny is fascinated by the stories of the monster of Loch Ness in Scotland. What’s going on there? Are these just stories?

Spirit

No, they are not just stories. There is a lot going on there. The Scottish people have struggled with “Nessie” (their nickname for the creature) well over 100 years.Read more

Return To Love

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 6

My spirit guides often say nothing you do, say, or think is done in a vacuum. It all ripples out to the whole world and touches many lives, whether you’re aware of it or not.

Spirit

You have often heard us say you are all connected. It can never be otherwise.

However, you live in the illusion of separation. You see this person here, another there, and so on—all separate, even distant from you.

You chose to physically incarnate, or reincarnate, into this world of illusion many times over many years.Read more
