During the past couple of weeks, there seems to be an ongoing, and mainly unconscious theme, that keeps popping up. From relatives, friends and clients, we are hearing all kinds of chatter, like:
“So, I’m basically wondering, if she has time…”
“Again, only if she has time, I don’t want to be a burden.”
“Sally’s Mom just died and what is going on with me is trivial, so I don’t want to bother her.”
“It is more blessed to give than receive” is just one more damn statement that we have bought into.
Others are: you must drink 8 glasses of water per day. Carbs make you fat. We have created a generation of self-entitled snowflakes. Flu shots prevent flu. Organic eating is definitely better for you. You must feel sorry for the animals at the shelter. You’ll get sick if you go outside in the winter with wet hair. Karma will get you. A watched pot never boils. You are at that certain age that when you sneeze or laugh, you piddle in your pants, so now you need another kind of special pad (as if wearing them most of my life wasn’t enough, sheesh). Love your neighbor as yourself (sometimes your neighbor is an asshole, so it’s much easier to hand them over to the Healing Blue Print instead of beating yourself up and fake loving them.) It is only natural to grieve (something I am really experimenting with right now). And, Good Lord, the list goes on.
Just because someone said it or wrote a book about it, does not make it true. I am one of those people who questions everything to see if it is indeed true or not. And then I go and play with the idea while living in the world. I sometimes stumble all over the damn place, but it’s always worth the chaotic journey.
Here is a story that recently happened to me. The following message is from Leni’s Guides:
“We ask you to remove our pride from every life situation in order to gain the most optimal results. We will give you an example: the other day when you began to get sick, Leni offered you Vitamin C. You refused and said you didn’t take it anymore because you thought that you didn’t need it. This decision was made out of pride. Leni listened to us and was sick for one day because she took the Vitamin C. You were very sick for two weeks. You are on the right track with this as the Vitamin C serves as an emotional booster more than a physical booster and when you reach a certain state, you will no longer need anything like that. However, you are still learning. The only reason that Leni achieves certain healing results is that she does not have a lot of pride concerning healing herself. This lack of pride serves a very important purpose in self-healing. When you believe that you know it all or that you are past certain things, it serves as a roadblock. We know that the Vitamin C is a symbol, but you haven’t fully embraced this on a deep level yet. We are not trying to discourage you, but you are naturally imbued with the characteristics of pride, independence and showing the way for others. On earth, these characteristics can cause roadblocks. Do not be daunted by not mastering the self-healing issue yet. It is a very difficult one. Instead, look at it as a challenge, a mountain to be climbed. You have climbed many mountains Sally Dubel (I just love when they address me that way) and you will conquer this one too. We are not suggesting going and purchasing vitamins, simply make decisions that do not include pride. This current illness was a creative rest solution that was a result of the death of your Mother and too much stress in a short period of time. You can avoid these situations in the future by not over-exerting yourself if possible Sally Dubel, you are much more than you even realize. Always believe in yourself because you have already accomplished the impossible on earth and you are only at the beginning of your true destiny.” (When the Guides said I have already accomplished the impossible on earth, they are talking about a decision I made in 2016, although I didn’t know it at the time. Apparently, my contract was to come in, get happy and then check out at the age 0f 63. I am now 65 and the one thing that stands out about that time was the information Leni was receiving about Ego Integration. I changed my mind and decided to stay. Cool.)
Now, you would think this message would have pissed me off. And, yes, in the past, it definitely would have. But I filled up with what I can only describe as “refreshment”. Holy shit, I had no idea that pride was stuck down in there. It showed me one more tiny way that I too was refusing to receive. I wildly welcomed pride into my Healing Blue Print. Oh I just love love love you, pride.
I’m a Giver, and man, I love to give give give. The receiving part has been a lot harder to learn, mainly because of the above-written biblical phrase, which is thrown all over the place AS TRUTH.
When I now consciously sit back and say YES to everything, I do believe I am becoming the World’s Greatest Receiver and there is as much joy in that state as in being a Giver. Pay attention to the thoughts that come up: I am not worthy. I don’t want to bother them. Your issue is way more relevant than mine. That’s pride folks, with a nice dose of self-importance and victimness thrown in for your mutual entertainment. Again, just those nutty deeply buried thoughts that you can happily walk through the Healing Blue Print.
To all my buddies out there: I walked through it, there was no pain and this side is once again other-worldly. So, please please please step up and ask for anything you want from us. We want to give you everything you want. It’s so much damn fun. But, you have to ask.

When you are talking to Sparkle, miracles happen. Her erudite and profound way of getting to the bottom of what it is we are believing is second to none. I've watched as Sparkle listens to someone and finds a way of getting exactly to where that person needs to see from, just by being her wonderful and intuitive self. Her name fits her perfectly, this sparkling ray of light has blessed so many with her humorous musings, which hide profound trusts, all wrapped up in a giggle or three. Sparkle is simply love on legs. Time spent in the company of this gorgeous soul can only bring more joy into anyone's life.

The thing that differentiates you (Sally) from others, is that you do not go out to people with an agenda, but with unconditional love. I still cannot describe the state I was in when you visited Switzerland. I felt as if I were in a state of flow and blissful happiness. I want to learn from you how one can live like this every day.
