Editor's Notes...

Dear Free Spirits,

Welcome free spirits, to the November Newsletter

*Once again it is time for a change. Time to move out of the old web box and remodel my site. I am actively rebuilding the pages and you should see a major change in the design and layout of the site by the end of this year. The newsletter will be part of that reformatting. If you have any ideas or would like to get involved as a contributor of articles or special features, please Contact Me!

*For those who don't celebrate Christmas, it can be a special time of year for you anyway. I don't celebrate the season, but I love to watch others as they race to prepare for their special day. Also, you don't have to feel bad or guilty about not celebrating, it's just something some people do or do not!

*If you are into making New Year resolutions and they haven't worked out for you yet, try making a simple resolution this year to try something new or a different way of doing something everyday - no major changes. Just one change a day and all those other resolutions that never manifested will take care of themselves.

*For those of you who are not aware of it I have an established spiritual forum. In the forum we talk about spiritual matters and how spiritualism effects our everyday life, and you may post your questions and replies. This is not a religious forum. It embraces new thoughts about spiritual philosophy. Please join our community or check it out at: http://www.klienwachter.com/Discussion/

*I am looking for volunteers to read the new manuscript before it is finalized and published. If you like to read "New Age" philosophy then you may be interested in previewing the book before it comes out. I will be sending out limited copies of the manuscript to 30 to 50 people (34 left). There are some conditions which will apply. If you are interested in being amongst the few to have a sneak preview of the book, please send me an email via our Contact Me! form on the site. Warning: If you have strict religious beliefs which do not allow you to look outside the doctrine of your faith (the box) - this book is not appropriate for you. Note: Several people have asked for the script and have not opened their email. Please Check your spam folder and retrieve the email if you are one of the volunteers and are still waiting. This is a very time sensitive.

* In the rebuilding of my site, I am considering opening up limited space for advertising. I have been avoiding this for years, but the bills have to be paid and the site needs to support itself. Of course the advertising must be related to the genre of this site. If this is of interest to you please Contact Me!

Christmas Can be Fun

11/02/07

As a child, Christmas was definitely a great time. Presents, presents, and more presents – the words were interchangeable.

   We had our little duty to perform on Christmas Eve and that was the midnight service at church. Other than that we were free to imagine all the possibilities under the tree.

   I came from a poor family where we fought each other and the dog for table scraps. But when it came to Christmas, Santa came through. We did without throughout the year, but mother stepped up to the plate and outdid herself at Christmas. We were not often disappointed, except for one thing that has left me scarred for life - I DID NOT GET MY LIONEL ELECTRIC TRAIN SET. I grew up dysfunctional and disillusioned because of that. That’s my story and I’m stick’n to it.

   Of course for most of us it is both a stressful time and a special and delightful time. As I grew up and moved farther away from my family, Christmas time became a time of anger, I became hypocritical of others and often made sarcastic remarks about them or the season. I was projecting my resentment onto others (mostly because I didn’t get my Lionel Electric Train Set) and embittered, I turned away from Christmas.

   Later I started celebrating it alone but only for the ceremony and the presents. The big thing was to find the present I could get for myself, I was always good to myself at Christmas. I decided to start shopping early and found that in doing so I was not as angry as when I shopped on the 24th. Christmas for me as with others was basically a one day event that sometimes extended to New Years and was a time away from work. Even under a flag of truss, I believe that there would be bodies if the family ever found themselves within arms reach of each other. A time of peace – I don’t think so!

   As a celebration of peace, Christmas left me cold. It is not possible to feel peace for one day when your heart and mind is not at peace. It seemed hypocritical for me to push aside the negative feelings I had about the people who were being hypocritical this time of year. So I decided to make some personal changes.

   I now celebrate Christmas (the spirit of Christmas) 365 days a year. I am good to myself most of the time and often share it with others when the opportunity comes up. Although I still have my moments, I allow them and then refocus. I have many years of negativity that sometimes get in the way; however, awareness has found ways for me to deal with them. I am at peace most of the time, and even when I’m not, I don’t criticize myself, I celebrate the peace that will come.

   Today, I still don’t celebrate Christmas, but I find a lot of joy watching others as they prepare for the season. They are constant reminders of what I love about myself and some of the things that I would like to change.

   Christmas is not so much a time of peace, but a demonstration of what peace could be like. It is certainly something that we can aspire to by incorporating peace in our lives every day.

   You will find me having breakfast Christmas morning at Denny’s along with several others who are relaxed and have peace written all over their faces.

Namaste

 EXTRAORDINARY SOURCES OF WISDOM

New Book Explains How Dreams, Coincidence & Imagination Can Help Us Create the Lives We Truly Desire  

Only a dream? Only a coincidence? Only your imagination? Bestselling author and dream expert Robert Moss says that it’s only through dreams, coincidence, and the workings of the imagination that we can journey to the world beyond the obvious one, a world where we awaken to who we are and who we are meant to become.  

The enclosed review copy of The Three “Only” Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence, and Imagination (New World Library, September 15, 2007) offers practical suggestions, tested in Moss’ workshops and consultations, for harnessing the life-altering power of the subconscious mind. In clear and lively language, Moss explains the nine powers of dreaming, including solving problems, seeing the future, tapping creativity, and understanding relationships; the nine rules of coincidence, such as “things happen together” and “setbacks offer opportunity”; and the seven uses of imagination, including seeing your destination and experiencing a spirit of play.  

Entertaining examples from noted dreamers reveal how respected figures have used these everyday oracles, not only in their own lives, but also for the greater good. For example:  

Howard Schultz founder of Starbucks claims imagination is the secret of his success. He says, “My most marked characteristic is the ability to dream more than most think practical.”

Hilary Swank, the star of Million Dollar Baby, told 60 Minutes that dreams took her from a trailer park to Hollywood. Don Henley wrote “Hotel California” as the result of a dream.

Jeff Taylor, creator of the wildly popular internet job search company Monster.com, was inspired by a dream in which he built a bulletin board system where people could look for jobs General Norman Schwartzkopf reportedly based tactical decisions in the first Gulf War on dreams Jamie Foxx, in accepting his Oscar, explained that dream guidance from his dead grandmother gave him the discipline to become a star  

The Three “Only” Things explains how each of us can achieve this same miraculous level of results in our own lives as we recognize and start to work with the wisdom that is inherent in dreams, coincidence, and imagination.  Moss’ book is chock full of fresh and exciting ways we can work with these extraordinary sources of wisdom to create the lives we truly desire.  

About the Author Robert Moss is a world authority on dreams, a bestselling novelist, and a former foreign correspondent and professor of ancient history. His latest book is The Three “Only” Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence and Imagination. Visit his website www.mossdreams.com.  

THE THREE “ONLY” THINGS by Robert Moss September 15, 2007 • Hardcover • 224 pages Price: $21.95 • ISBN 978-1-57731-596-4

“What Robert Moss does—again and again and with such clarity and greatness of heart—is remind us that magic is a breath away and that everyone has the capacity to tap into the heritage that is truly ours. Everyone and anyone can lift the lid on their life—we can all find our soul’s purpose and live it fully and with heart.
–Manda Scott, bestselling author of the Boudica novels.

 Only a dream? Only a coincidence? Only your imagination? Bestselling author and dream expert Robert Moss says that it’s only through dreams, coincidence, and the workings of the imagination that we can journey to the world beyond the obvious one, a world where we awaken to who we are and who we are meant to become.

“In everyday circumstances, caught up in hurry and stress and other people’s schedules and expectations, we often lose touch with the deeper meaning of life,” he writes. “We become entangled in problems that cannot be solved on the level of thinking and being we are on. We are unable to recognize the hidden order of events. We become strangers to magic, which is the art of reaching into a deeper reality and bringing gifts from it into the ordinary world. Worst of all, we forget who we are. We do not know where we come from or where we are going, beyond lists and resumes. We do not remember that our lives may have a deeper purpose and be part of a larger story.”

Robert Moss has a fascinating story in its own right. He was a foreign correspondent and a bestselling thriller writer on the material fast track before an extraordinary series of dreams and visions guided him to dedicate his life to helping our society remember how to dream. Over the past 15 years, he has helped more than 15,000 workshop participants work with their dreams, find and follow the voice of the heart, and recognize the deeper stories of their lives.
