When the angels said there were more cells in the body than souls on earth, I had to be a geek and go look it up. According to some reports, there are 37.4 trillion cells in the body. That is 37.4 million-billion cells! There are about 7.5 billion people on earth. So if I did the math right, rounding things up there are 5 million times as many cells in the body as there are souls on earth. Wow. Just wow. And they work together to create this miraculous earth suit that we run around in for the duration of a lifetime. Amazing.
I was talking to my mom on the phone today. She was getting pretty hot and bothered over a certain figure on the news, so I suggested she pray for him. She said she started and suddenly her stomach started feeling better. I’ve experienced that phenomena tool. Judgment of self or others contracts us. Love expands and frees us – mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and even physically.
I once did energy work on a man with fatal cancer and tumors bulging from his arms. His deceased father appeared to me during the treatment and told me he had been horrible on earth and his son’s unforgiveness and bitterness had been “eating at him,” his whole life and causing the cancer. He said, with a great deal of love from the other side that even if his son wanted nothing to do with him, he prayed his son work out those feelings on earth and heal, rather than having to resolve the issue in heaven. I told the man on my table. He got counseling, released judgment, forgave himself and his father, and let go of the bitterness that was eating at him. His body healed.
I too have had massive and quick healings in my body when I let go of old angers and upsets. There have been times when lumps went away, when my digestion suddenly healed, when shingles rashes just disappeared within hours, all due to the healing power of releasing judgment, anger, and blame.
It isn’t easy. We’re physiologically conditioned to fight, flight, or freeze when we hurt. We’re culturally and mentally conditioned to be upset and judgmental for the most part, and yet in the end, we are the ones in charge of our own choices, our own bodies, and our own minds. It is only false pride that makes us think we’re better than someone else. The angels remind me on occasion that me, the ant on the counter, the majestic mountains, those that love me, and those that hate me are all made of One and the same light.
It takes work to get over our conditioning, but for the good of our own bodies, minds, and souls, and the good of the whole, I think it’s worth it.
Here are some pointers to help turn anger, judgment, and pride to love…
1. Beat the “Better” or “Worse’ curse
Next time you catch yourself feeling superior or inferior to someone else remind yourself that this is just a subtle form of negative pride. (Positive pride consists of taking joy in our own accomplishments, without comparison).
“I and they are the same light. We are One being having an experience as many. We are cells in One body, branches on One tree, waves in One ocean. I may be more or less evolved right now but if we were to exchange lives and histories, we might just become one another. Dear God, Let me see myself as their equal. Let me see them as mine.”
You don’t have to like their behaviors, words, or even personality… just remember that these upsets are the choppy waves on an Ocean whose depths are peace and love. Deep down, we are One.
2. Pray for those you don’t like
If you see someone doing, saying, or being something you cannot stand, or simply don’t like, pray for the to be lifted into greater light.
“Dear Divine Source, may the light of your love rise up within me, within them, within us all. May we all be lifted into greater light and more harmonious interactions.”
3. Seek to understand
Instead of judging one another, the angels remind us to seek understanding. Do your research. Consider the past history of the person you judge. If you know them, and you’re brave, tell them their behavior hurts and you’re really trying to understand.
I once wrote to a woman who ran a hate site, casting aspersions on a popular television show host. I told her I was a spiritual teacher and I was just trying to understand why she ran a hate site, and rather than judge, I thought I’d ask. She said it started as a joke but got so much support she now felt trapped by her own creation. I thanked her and prayed for her.
I hear the stories of pain in my office that drive people to hate, vindictiveness, and all sorts of behaviors that they’re not proud of. It is a rare case where someone decides to turn from an innocent baby into a hateful, wicked soul. The darkness of an individual is proportional to their woundedness. They need our prayers.
If you have no way of researching to understand a person whom you’d normally judge, pray to see them through God’s eyes and suddenly you may find great compassion.
When I once saw that a woman who hated me and was trying to kill me through attacks in the spiritual realm was viscously abused as a child, I suddenly had great compassion. The attacks stopped as I sent love and prayers for her healing.
The darkness of others cannot exist in when you stand in your light.
The angels keep saying our world is in need of more love. We may never like everyone else, and that’s alright! We don’t want to dance with everyone. That’s fine too. However, the angels lately have been asking us all to do our best, to pray for the wounded rather than falling into judgment or propogating negativity and/or hate.
After all… we are One glorious and magnificent body of light.
Healthy cells, and healthy souls, make for a healthy life.
