Say Yes to the Universe

What happens when an opportunity comes along which we  have not consciously called to ourselves, and it keeps insistently inserting itself into our lives?  This has been my experience of being the executor for my mother’s estate.  It is probably a good thing I did not know all that was involved because I would have probably gone running in the opposite direction. Well, I did run in the beginning!

One thinks of these roles as a few months duration and then closure.  This role for me has been forming and reforming itself for over 3 years.

Now as I am seeing a possible end to this, I realize that I have been given numerous opportunities through this process to say “YES” to the Universe or “NO”.  My major learning is that if I can get into a place to wholeheartedly say “Yes” to the Universe, my life flows more smoothly. If I don’t get into that place, I feel drained, worried, frustrated and disturbed.

When it was clear that my mother was finally ready to move to a retirement center, I kept ignoring what all this would mean to me.  We found a great retirement facility,  lovely apartment, worked out the financing, discussed the move.   We planned out the furniture she would be taking with little cut-out scaled furniture representations for each room courtesy of my husband.  I would be very present with her at her home, then return to my home and stop thinking about it, completely.  I just simply did not think about any of the real consequences of this for me. That worked okay for a while to lull me into thinking, “this will chug along just fine”.

Then I began to get phone calls 3-4  months before the move, such as, “Robbins, I just don’t think I am really ready to move quite yet.  You know there is only so much time and I’d like to spend it here where I am. ”  Or another call,  “Robbins, I don’t think this new place is going to really suit me.  Perhaps we should wait. ”   These calls were coming after we had paid a hefty deposit and already set the move date.

It slowly dawned on me that my 86 year old mother could not cope with the move, at all, really. She might be able to work with me on what to take but the idea of really clearing out her home of 41 years, was  simply shutting her down.  At my home, I went ballistic, right into agitated anger, then “I can’t cope” mode,   I am ” incompetent” mode, why me?,  defeated resignation and on alternate Saturdays, begrudging acquiescence.  In other words, I was in a state of resounding “NO”!

I really did not want to go to Richmond (2.5 hours from me) week after week to make this move happen.  I had a healing practice in full swing, for goodness sake.  I had terrible “clearing out” skills myself. Why me?  Why me?

Thus began my daily training and education about saying “YES” or “NO” to the Universe.  All the agitation with the situation and with myself simply made me feel worse. I had not expected to begin my role as executor while my mother was still alive and fully competent.   I felt surprised and really unprepared.  Therefore I tried to control everything I could.  Grasping for control is completely different from saying “YES” to the Universe.

Grasping for control looked like my trying to get clarity and a firm decision from my mother about what she would take to her new apartment,  in one afternoon.  We both ending up frustrated.  Another image comes to mind of my driving on I- 95 South and being detoured by a  three lane accident.  Traffic was at a standstill for 1.5 hours before it moved.  My reaction was to fume.  The more I fumed the worse the situation got.  I eventually realized I was driving in the wrong direction on a secondary road before I got a hold of the anger.  These are just some of the none too pretty exchanges which occurred in my “NO” period.

I did finally get that I was making myself and most everyone else miserable AND that I had a choice in the matter. I began to call for the clearing of my anger, my fear of failure, my fear of not being competent to help my mother, fear of screwing up the legal process, fear about resenting the time I needed to spend in Richmond and a few dozen other fears as well.    As each one of these fears was named and released over a few weeks, our time together got easier and easier. Surprise, surprise!

I went for 2- 3 days a week regularly and we began by setting up systems for addressing the “stuff”.  I remember being quite thrilled at about 6 weeks into this process, when my mother called and said that she had actually gone through a desk by herself and cleared it out as well as a chest of drawers.  She was very  pleased with herself.  This was the first time ever, in all the years I had known her that I remembered her doing this of her own volition.  So, confidence was growing for both of us. As I was increasingly going with the flow,  saying “YES” to the Universe, amazing things were happening.

We actually laughed a great deal as we were plowing through boxes from our lives in Holland, which had not been opened in 41 years.  We spent one afternoon remembering all the clothes my mother had made for me through the years.  This was aided by still having ever single one of the patterns in the basement and many actual material scraps of outfits themselves to aid our memories!  I began to program my IPod for the trip on I-95 South and by playing my own music, the trip seemed shorter and shorter.  We went out to dinner just the two of us which had hardly ever happened as we were always with other family members.   Such truly precious times, all from saying “YES” to the Universe.   I came to realize that this was a supreme blessing for me on every level,  one I had not called for myself but one which the Universe had presented all on its own for me.

Try saying “YES” to your Universe in your life.

There is likely to be a delicious blessing past the anger, frustration, need to control, fear of failure and fear of having to do something you don’t like doing.  My husband laughed with me as I began to come home each week and delve into our own piles of stuff, clearing, sorting and giving away.  I became determined to de-clutter and clear out so as to never have to face a 40 year stint of accumulated possessions of my own.  Another opportunity to say “YES” to the Universe. Happy affirming to you.

Praying with Results

How does one go about getting  a car and a house sold one day after praying about it? Read on!

The purpose of prayer is to connect with the Greater Whole/ All That Is / Highest Presence.  When we think of prayer, however, we often begin by asking God for something which we think we are missing. This is highly ineffective though because it goes against all that we know to be true in the Universe.

God is constant.  God never changes.  These are absolutes in the Universe for all people. Our needy prayer will not get “God” to do anything differently from what has been going on for eons. Without a doubt, there is no DIVINE BEING who will give us what we want when we ask for it from a place of lack or neediness.  It does not work this way.

For the highest prayer results, we have to pray from a place of claiming we are One with All That Is, from a position of shared power, from a place of a ” joint heir to the throne”.  When we do this, we are envisioning the highest good, the highest benevolent outcome, the Light surrounding loved ones, Divine Presence in the space of fear, using the highest available power.   We are calling forth the Presence of God in infinite form,  from the unformed nature of the Universe just like God said, “Let there be Light” and there was.

Though I am in prayer numerous times a day, it is most often with Divine Beings and other pe0ple’s highest I AM Energy.  I learned a powerful lesson recently about praying for things in my own life.

My mother’s house had been on the market for over two years with only one extremely low bid  in all that time.  Also, a friend’s car had been parked at our house for nearly three years, though only in the last 3 months  had she been seriously ready to sell the car, this time around.  She had tried for a short time last year to sell the car without success.  On July 4 of this year, my husband and I sat together and spoke aloud, prayers for each of these situations.  This is not a common experience we have!  We called for the clearing of all blocked energy manifesting as these items remaining unsold.   We called for persons to manifest who would love the car and love my mother’s house.  We called for the sharing of the full abundance of these resources with those who would love them.

On July 5th, the car sold.  On July 5th the eventual purchaser saw my mother’s house for the first time.  After two more visits she made an offer and we settled on a contract.  The one thing she told the realtor as we were negotiating is that she absolutely loved the house!  No one in two years had said that about the house.

Why hadn’t this happened before this time?  What was so powerful about the way we prayed that made a difference the very next day? I realized that if only one of these things had happened,  I might not have gotten the lesson.  Because both items were addressed the day after our prayer,  it was absolutely clear that something was different about the prayers we prayed.  Here is my best take on what was different about these prayers from others I had prayed over the months before this time.

I prayed with another person about these items.

  • When I pray for others with Divine Presence, their own energy is always present so there are  two of us present.  I learned that when praying about items connected to me I can increase the power of the call by praying with another person.  Praying together with my husband was a powerful expansion of the call for Divine Presence regarding these items for sale.

We prayed these prayers out loud with our  individual contributions to the effort.

  • When we pray out loud, we are literally giving form to the unformed Divine Universe around us. All that is needed is already given though it may not be manifesting in ways we would like to see it manifest.  Emilie Cady says, ” We must take our thought off the visible world and center it on God.  We begin, as God began in creation, by speaking out into this formless substance all about us with faith and power.  ‘Let there be so and so (whatever we want). Let if come forth into manifestation here and now.  It does come forth by the power of my word.  It is done.  It is manifest.’ ” ( Complete Works of  H. Emilie Cady, H. Emilie Cady,  Unity House, 1995, p 199. )

We prayed these prayers from a position of sharing abundance with others who would love the items we had to sell.

  • We were both focused on the energy of abundance which is in Right Relationship with Divine Energy.  Abundance energy manifests as expanding love, infinite source and creative possibility.  We called forth, from the unformed Universe, people who would love the things we had to share.  Love heals all things, corrects all situations, manifests all good, even a house that had not sold for 2 years and a car that had had an unclear fate for over a year.

We prayed these prayers within a sacred healing circle called for this purpose.

  • Our prayers were said within the space of a sacred assemblage of Divine Energy in a range of forms, including Angelic Host, Cosmic Light Beings, Ascended Masters, Nature and Deva Spirits and both of our I AM Energies/ our Eternal Beings.

Take the risk of praying out loud with another.  “When two or more are gathered together in My Name, there, I Am”.   Take the risk of calling in Divine Presence for reasons of love (appreciation, delight, abundance, creativity, kindness, ) etc.  Take the risk of specifically working with Divine Presence in other forms to support your call.  These steps will produce good results for you.

Clearing Imbalance

Illness is caused at its core by an imbalance in the flow of unseen energy in our bodies.  If there is stuck energy, various imbalances manifest in our physical body to get our attention. I work with unseen energies such as thoughts, feelings and sense of connection with the Greater Whole.  When these unseen energies are blocked, our health is affected even though we can’t see this energy.   Illness, in many cases, is a warning system about blocked energy.

We live in a world filled with germs, bacteria, viruses, spirochetes, parasites, worms, etc.  Why can two people encounter the same virus and one person develops a full blown set of symptoms while the other manifests no symptoms at all? We might claim a strong immune system or general resistance to viruses and leave it to a vague sense of  heredity.  However, I have experienced that we manifest strong immune systems when we are in balance with our  thoughts, feelings and sense of connectedness to the Greater Whole.  Our body reflects the nature of our unseen internal balance or imbalance as the case may be.

We can more readily sense this in our relationships.  If we have a recurring argument with our spouse, child or parent, there is very likely blocked energy in our thoughts, emotions, or connection with the Greater Whole which keeps coming up to fuel these recurring arguments.  We often even know what that blocked energy is.

Again and again, in working with people manifesting persistent mis-alignments, infections, fever, fungus, viruses, rashes, etc.  there is some blocked unseen energy which must be cleared first, before the body can heal.  Clear the energetic imbalance and the body heals in nearly all cases.  Systemic imbalance in the energy field does not allow the body to fully heal and manifest balance.

There are levels of imbalance.  An allergy to mold can often be effectively treated with homeopathic medicine or acupressure and the body comes into balance.  When a person has extensive allergies with little improvement over time, systemic blocked energy is clearly present.  

Louisa had suffered with allergies, year around, for many years by the time I saw her.  She had taken dozens of medicines, tried various treatments including acupuncture,  been to numerous doctors and still suffered severely with allergies.  She found that if the medicines worked for the allergies, she felt sluggish and “off” energetically.

She was increasingly spending her time in a drugged daze.  She was depressed by the constancy of the attacks.  They were deeply affecting her ability to be outside and enjoy nature.  The question we asked of Divine Knowing was, what is the blocked energy manifesting now as allergies? Louisa was carrying blocked spiritual energy manifesting as allergies.

We have four energetic bodies each with a unique type of energy.  The only one we see is our physical body.  Right next to our physical body, though unseen, is our emotional body.  Next out is our mental body and furthest from our physical body is the spiritual body.  The spiritual body is made up of our sense of connectedness with the Greater Whole/God/All That Is.  Each of these bodies vibrate at different levels of megahertz.  The physical body is the densest body and therefore vibrates at the slowest rate.  The spiritual body is the least dense body and vibrates at the fastest rate.  In fact, we need to be very quiet and still to even perceive our spiritual bodies at all.  Meditation, therefore,  can be very helpful in helping us become more aware of our spiritual bodies.

Louisa carried disconnected energy from the Greater Whole, though she was not conscious of this.  She would not have been able to recognize this unless those allergies demanded her attention in the way they did.  As she began to release blocked spiritual and fear energy from her life experiences, she came increasingly into physical balance.  Her allergies diminished and eventually her whole body came into balance.

What were some of the specific blocked energies she was dealing with? Actually,  we don’t have to know what those specific energies are for them to clear from our field.  It is possible to open a sacred space with Divine Presence, call out the blocked spiritual energy manifesting as allergies and have that blocked energy clear from our field.   You may need to repeat this several times if you have hesitations about this working or if you have fear that you will never be free of allergies.  However,  every time you call for such clearing, some of the blocked energy leaves. Blocked energy first leaves from the unseen areas of our being and eventually the shift in energy shows up as greater balance in the body.

Spiritual healing is not a magical fix.  It is about coming into greater and greater connection with Divine Peace, Love and Balance.

If we have had a condition for a long time, it is rare that that condition is healed with one call for clearing.  However, it is equally true that with one call for the clearing of blocked energy, some of the stuck energy will leave, every time. This is so because we are One with All That Is even if we don’t know it to be so.  We are One and therefore we can use our Oneness to clear our own field of blocked energy.  Try it.  You will experience blocked energy clearing, the more you use it.   Share your experiences with us!


  • I open a sacred healing circle with my highest I AM energy (the part of us which is eternal), the Ascended Masters, the Angelic Host, (any others, your choice).
  • I call forth the blocked emotional, mental and spiritual  energy I am carrying which is currently manifesting as allergies to tree pollen ( state your own imbalance).
  • I call for the Sacred Flame ( God’s Presence in flame form) to consume this blocked energy at its very source in the specific year, month and day of its inception in my field.  I release all of this blocked energy and call for Divine Presence in the place of this stagnant energy.
  • Thanks Be to God/All That Is/Great Oneness/ Allah.

Reminder: After clearing of blocked energy, you may experience detox.  You can feel worse before you feel better.  When clearing takes place, your body vibrates at a higher frequency and toxins are sloughed off from the body.  Tiredness and bowel changes are frequent detox symptoms.  Drink lots of water and eat lightly to reduce the symptoms.
