About olden1936

ABOUT THE AUTHORS Previous to meeting, marrying each other and merging their Spiritual work in England in 1983 Yvonne and David had both trod paths that gave them a deep understanding of and love for the human race. During Yvonne’s childhood her natural psychic gifts entered her life to guide her and those around her. As an adult Yvonne undertook lengthy disciplined training to develop those gifts to the point where she became a practising clairvoyant medium, and in that role Yvonne has been able to offer spiritual guidance and counselling to an ever-widening circle of seekers who sought her services. After more deep study and practical experience Yvonne added Past-lives Regression Therapy to her list of offered services. Those services also include a postal personal past-lives information service. Clairvoyant readings by post and also a trapped soul rescue/release service by post no matter what the distance involved. All of David’s working life was in public service including many years as ambulance crew of Accident ambulances in Central London. This was an excellent grounding in the human condition at its most vulnerable and anguished. David became a seeker after witnessing the paralysis and wasted muscles of his teen-aged son’s shoulder and arm due to a motor cycle accident return to life at the touch of a spiritual healer. Within a year full movement and strength had returned. Around the same time spiritual healing could not cure but brought immense relief from physical pain caused by a spinal cancer condition suffered by David’s first wife Jean. The healers trained David to develop and use his own healing gifts combined with massage techniques to bring positive relief for Jean’s extremely painful condition before she died. David’s writing began in 1976 when a bad time he was having, was greatly relieved by learning to write poetry, which he still does. As an avid reader David was stopped in his tracks by a psychic announcement (via Yvonne) that he must stop reading, and instead start writing. When David asked, “About what?” as usual there was no reply. So he sat down at his ancient portable, and suddenly knew what to write, it simply flowed. That was in 1988 and he hasn’t stopped since. David calls this Intuitive writing. After having waited months and years to have manuscripts returned by busy publishers too busy to review them, David and Yvonne decided to try shoestring self publishing. Next they scraped up the money from somewhere to buy a Word Processor and printer: The weakest link of which David admits is himself who has never used one before but is slowly getting there. In 1997 Yvonne and David made contact with dear Joan Benesh and then met her during her visit to nearby Rennes le Chateau. Joan knew their work and invited them to contribute articles to her newsletter. Very soon after that Yvonne and David discovered that their common sense approach to ascension in their writings, appealed to a growing number of Seekers. This made them realise just how many people; who maybe don’t know Joan, but actually read Joan’s newsletter when it is passed on to them by subscribers to Joan’s Ashurst Ascension network. In 1991 the effects of an accident at work left David partially disabled. He took early retirement and during that same period all the spiritual pointers guided Yvonne and David towards the Languedoc area of Southern France. Sanat Kumara provided the guidance, and then made sure it was followed because once they had arrived in France they had to struggle to stay there and couldn’t afford to go back to England. As it turned out, the fact that neither Yvonne nor David spoke a word of French didn’t matter because they swiftly found that theirs is energy work. They had not visited England since their arrival in France in 1991. Intellectually Yvonne and David learnt more and more about the tragic history of the Languedoc, and a whole population of Cathars and their prosperous and enlightened lifestyle crushed by a Holy Crusade. The Holy Inquisition followed the Crusade with a hundred years of terror tactics to eradicate a very potent and logical belief system. As they travelled the foothills: “Taking their Light” to the many sacred energy sites, the authors learnt more; only this time psychically, of the countless numbers of trapped souls who had faced death with terror and bewilderment and who had been denied the time to prepare for death. So a great deal of Yvonne’s and David’s work is to do with the release of trapped souls (who after all, are people just like us) Once Yvonne is able to link with them, she is able to relieve their trauma and fear, then guide them to the Light. Retirement has given Yvonne and David time to spare for others and that time has been used to the full. The seeker who is a teacher must also always be a student. Time has been used for intensive study of the ancient wisdom in its ancient and modern forms including the Keys of Enoch and the modern Ascension information. Time is devoted to meditation, to correspondence with seekers worldwide, to visitors seeking their Cathar roots, to spiritual artwork including New Age cartoon books, and articles, stories and books about aspects of ascension We now have five of our books published in E-Book format by Amazon/Kindle. Together Yvonne and David represent a total of forty years of intensive study of Metaphysics, Meta-psychology, and Psychical research. What they have learnt they try to live. Their knowledge is used in their talks and writings in common sense, non-mystical ways that enable seekers to apply that knowledge to their everyday lives. Note: 2006 Yvonne and David returned to live in the UK and now in 2018 they both warmly welcome all contacts with seekers, either by letter, visit, or via our website www.ascensionsupportteam.com david_brittain@talktalk.net The only conditions they insist upon, that you phone or e-mail them first, and then bring your sense of humour. Love and Laughter From David and Yvonne Brittain E-mail: david_brittain@talktalk.net Website: www.ascensionsupportteam.com

It is difficult for most non-politically conversant folks individually to separate the ‘wheat from the chaff’ information-wise, torn as we all are between longing to believe in the integrity of our elected governments, and being filled with doubt as to that integrity when also being flooded with thought-provoking intelligent offerings posted on the web. For example; is the current selection of whistleblowers made up of courageous heroes or dastardly villains betraying their country? It all depends upon who you listen to and who you choose to believe, and so really you, yes you reading this, make the choice and then, just like us all, you live with the fortunate or unfortunate future outcome of that choice. To me this suggests that you and me have a clear duty to self to rise above media provoked emotions and instead to apply clear thinking when faced with these choices. Experts abound on this planet but only you are expert about the world you wish to live in, and so only you can choose to work towards creating that world. One voice in the wilderness soon grows to millions of like-minded irresistible voices that demand to be heard, but as usual it relies upon one courageous voice to start the chorus.

EGO VERSUS INTUITION

Everyone is to some extent familiar with the “Doctor’s Surgery” mode of thought. Our early conditioning ensures that we immediately slip into this mode if we dare set foot into a doctor’s waiting room. We may be there simply to read the gas meter, but until we firmly declare our intentions, it is assumed by the receptionist that we are there to consult the doctor. If this is correct, often the receptionist may automatically regard her or his role as that of, “Defender of the Brilliant Doctor, and of the Brilliant Doctor’s valuable time.”

Knowing as we do that the doctor has a busy life, (as do most of us!) passively we patients patiently accept our roles of, “Those from whom the doctor must be defended.” With unruffled passivity we ignore the fact that all eight patients in the waiting room, including us, were given the identical appointment time; as if the patient’s time is considered to be valueless. Daunted by past experience, we know beforehand that to complain at such treatment is to call down upon us, horrified looks of disgust and indignation; but not only from the bristling receptionist and the bewildered doctor, but also from the other seven passive patients. Instead, because this mode is based on a deliberately generated implied atmosphere rather than anything clearly said, usually with unquestioning obedience we accept our prescribed passive roles. We go along with the crowd.

 

The above paragraphs are not meant to be a diatribe against the “Unalterable”. They are intended as a description of symptoms to which we all are vulnerable: The conditioned, unthinking, unquestioning passivity that leads us individually to automatically assume audience, acolyte, or ‘follow my leader’ roles. These are the very symptoms we are all trying to unload as individually we work towards our ascension.

 

For the individual seeker this task is made more difficult to achieve when set amid a new-age atmosphere geared to the comfort zone level of thought. This atmosphere manifests itself in the form of a generally accepted attitude that implies that “Intuition” is all that is needed. Where as the use of intellect, (probably because of its masculine past association with dominance), is to be regarded as, “Limited three-dimensional thinking that we ‘sensitive’ people have outgrown”

 

This is a very strange attitude, if adopted and encouraged by people who present themselves as, “Leading Lights at the cutting edge of New-age thought.” It is this same reluctance over many centuries; to include the use of intellect and logic that emptied the churches owned by established religions. In each of our articles we always urge seekers to develop the three inter-related attributes: Intuition, Intellect, and Discernment. Discernment is a vital ingredient when using either of the other two. The reliable use of intellect alone is limited to the past and the present.

Intellect only becomes truly reliable when backed by developed Intuition. Intuition has access to the future. Intellect does not have access to the future.

 

You may discuss intuition at endless length with others. You may read all the latest books about the development of intuition. But you are the only person that can find the time to patiently enter your own still quiet centre to develop your intuitional link to your higher self. Until you have done this you are vulnerable to the symptoms we have described in our “Doctor’s surgery” scenario, you go along with the crowd.

 

To illustrate what we mean, now try to visualise this typical new-age scenario:

A friend is “over the moon” about a lady he or she has heard of, who “channels” Ascended Masters. You succumb to his or her eager urgings to attend a channelled session. The audience consists of the usual mixture of very genuine, sincere people. It ranges from very knowledgeable, highly developed psychic mediums, and learned students of metaphysics, to the nice lady (in the red hat) who mistakenly thought it was to be a Spiritualist service. Many levels of spiritual understanding are in the audience.

 

Despite the hardness of the seats, the atmosphere in the hall is of quivering, joy-filled anticipation, conducive to generous spiritual hugs all around, and to a general air of, “Wanting to believe what we are about to hear, even before we hear it.”

 

At this point we all are vulnerable because as we passively succumb to the atmosphere as described we are tempted to stash our discernment, “outside the pale” with our already discarded 3D intellect. If we then rely on an intuitive link that we haven’t bothered to develop, to be our guide as to the authenticity of the channel’s utterances, we could end up by fooling ourselves. There are genuine channels that do channel genuine ascended masters. No doubt those genuine channels would readily agree that for the audience it is difficult to discern who is genuine and who isn’t. Just like their audiences, most channels have egos and maybe would admit that it is lovely to be the centrepiece. Admittedly it may be a tough vocation or career, but what vocation or career isn’t tough?

 

Genuine or not, most channels radiate personal charm and follow a similar format. With some channels it is difficult to define who is supposed to be speaking at any given moment; the channel or the ascended master. With some it is a person lecturing at length about what, we are told, he or she previously channelled in private. With others it is slightly more clear-cut. The ascended master comes through, and thanks his or her channel, and then announces that he or she has crossed the dimensions to be with the audience today. The audience is then informed that there is no such thing as coincidence, and that it is no coincidence that each of them is in the audience today.

 

Next, maybe they are informed that long ago each of them volunteered to descend from higher realms to exist in physical matter to help planet Earth and its bewildered peoples to ascend. Also, because they have all forgotten the task they came to do, that he or she; the ascended master, is there today to remind them of their special-ness.

The ascended master/channel then goes on to speak at great length, and with calm authority, about new waves of energy, reactivated crystal energy grids, Galactic Brotherhoods, refurbished DNA and RNA strands in a higher dimension, and so on. Whilst we listen, we all nod knowingly because we’ve all vaguely heard or read about these items somewhere.

 

But now maybe you can see the need for developed intuition? 

 

Intellectually you cannot prove, disprove, or even test any of this rarefied, scientific-sounding information. Equally, it is unlikely that the joy-filled atmosphere would survive too much audience-ego bruising. For example, if the audience were informed that they are some of the bewildered peoples of Earth to be uplifted by angelic volunteers, rather than being some of the special angelic volunteers that came to uplift Earth. For many in the audience this wouldn’t be quite what they wanted to hear.

 

Please don’t think we are trying to debunk genuine channels or the genuine ascended masters that are channelled. We are trying to highlight time-wasting diversions better avoided by the sincere individual seeker. A reliable guideline to follow could be: Is knowledge of this torrent of celestial tech-science relevant to my task of working on me: or is it simply “clutter” and “jargon” that will in turn just make me sound more knowledgeable?    

 

So that nothing will prevent he or she from recognising truth when faced with truth the genuine seeker is at all times trying to eliminate ego, and resist appeals by others to the ego. Otherwise the entire new-age scene becomes a pointless ego trip to nowhere, simply a matter of going along with the comfort zone crowd.

 

There is a danger until the seeker’s intuitional link is developed. The danger is that amid the atmosphere of maybe genuine, or maybe carefully generated, cosy, like-mindedness, he or she has no way of defining whether what was personally felt was, “Truth-chills” from the intuition, or “Frissons” of pleasure from a flattered ego. The operative words in the last sentence are, ‘what was personally felt’, because what anyone else in the audience personally felt is irrelevant to your personal spiritual progress. Equally, what anyone else thinks that you should have felt is also irrelevant.

 

Where does intellect fit into the new-age scene for the sincere individual seeker? This is far simpler that it seems. At all times the seeker receives more and more information. Much of this information is received via other seekers, and is offered in the sincere form of their individual interpretations (correct or incorrect) of information received by them. The information may be culled from the latest books, or from channels. Alternatively you may have received the information direct from your higher self via your intuitional link.

 

No matter how you received the information, now that you have it what are you going to do with it? Obviously you want to make that information an integral part of you. But before you can allow that to happen you need to know two things, that the information is genuine, and that you clearly understand the information. Both are vital if you are to avoid misguiding yourself and those you will teach.  Let’s look at gurus.

 

A guru enters the solitude of a cave to obtain answers that are unobtainable to him from the big world outside of the cave. Before seeking solitude he has listened with care to the mixed bag of spiritual conjecture, authoritatively offered to mankind by the great, established religions, and belief systems of the world. The guru seeks accurate knowledge and personally gained experience that he can use to transform himself, to achieve self-illumination, to enable him to ascend. The guru’s goal is no different to that of we modern-day seekers, so let’s see how he goes about the task. The guru in his cave divides his time between two meditative functions, both of which he firmly monitors with discernment. The first function is used to get the information, and so he clears his mind of clutter and then quietly waits, intuitively ‘tuned-in’ rather like a radio receiver. But who will send the information to him? No one will send it because he already has it stored with the part of his intelligence that we call his “Higher self”. The guru’s higher self will release that stored information, via the intuitive link, at the learning speed of the guru. What applies to the guru also applies to each of us.

 

So far our guru, in his passive, observing role, has intuitively received a flow of information in meditation. Then the flow ceases. When the flow ceases, the guru no longer remains a passive observer. Now the guru becomes an active participant. The guru brings in his intellect to absorb and understand the information he has received so far. This second meditative function is called ‘Contemplation’ and is used to make that information an integral part of the guru. The information so far, begins to transform the guru. Only then will higher self release more information. In this way gradually, the guru (or you reading this article) becomes so transformed that eventually higher self, the intuitive link, and the guru (or you) completely merge.

 

So we have access to two avenues of information. Intuitively from our higher self to then be absorbed via our intellect. Or intellectually via books, psychic channels etc. to then be tested by our higher self via our developed intuitive link. It couldn’t be simpler, and you don’t have to sit in a draughty cave. A warm, quiet bedroom will do. Or, if you are the last of the (block-appointment) eight patients, try it in the silence of a doctor’s empty waiting room.

Battleships to crack a nut?

Since Syria’s problems stem from its nutty president and associated Yes men versus a wide selection of non-Syrian rebel groups with their own agendas mixed in with genuine Syrian anti-Assad freedom fighters, surely a visit by a US SEAL team similar to the recent US ‘Get Bin Laden’ team would be more appropriate and definitely less expensive for US and Syrian tax payers? After all Assad’s army is perfectly capable of continuing to reduce Syria to ruins without the help of a UN ring of steel pumping shells from around the coasts. I only suggest this to limit that sanitized term ‘Collateral Damage’ as the USA apparently considers itself free and self-justified to eliminate or spy upon any selected target around the planet. The preferable alternative is to back away and concentrate upon bringing aid to the suffering Syrian population.

 

Olympic Games Mania

Ye Gods! I’m heartily sick of endless Olympic Games mania. I admit that most sports bore me to death, but I can’t help feeling the whole fiasco is simply a national ego trip and a means to soaking the taxpayers yet again. One thing’s for sure, even if I qualifed for free tickets which I don’t, I will avoid going anywhere near militarised London, and judging by the thousands of unsold tickets quite a few folks share my sentiments.

What it is to be British in 2012

The Prime Minister invited views about what it is to be British, hence this essay.

What it is to be British in 2012

 What it is to be British depends very much upon how long one has been British! In 1936, the year I was born, for me there were no doubts about this matter because I was born into a white working class English family each member of which regarded their selves and their forefathers firstly as English and secondly as British. Similarly the Scots, Welsh, and Northern Irish folks regarded their selves firstly as Scottish, or Welsh, or Northern Irish and British second. All of the fore-going I will refer to as native Britons. At that time to see someone whose skin was not white was a rare and novel experience indeed. Employees were required to say “Sir” to their bosses, and bosses referred to their employees by surname only. We could name it “The pre-war keep your place syndrome”

Three years later at the outbreak of World War Two, and for the next few war-torn years, these local distinctions blurred when as native Britons, nationally we all closed ranks to face a common foe, and as an evacuee infant schoolchild my war effort consisted during school morning assembly of singing, “What can I do for England that has done so much for me?”

When the war ended and as the warm camaraderie of shared perils quickly evaporated I recall the general atmosphere of greyness that followed with post-war rationing and shortages everywhere in the UK. The war had caused the tragic deaths of many British service men and this led to a dearth of employees to fill the huge numbers of post-war job vacancies throughout the land. Employers had no choice but to compete with each other to offer better wages and conditions of work, and to even adopt the previously unheard of custom of using their employees’ Christian names. The effect of all this on the trade union led workforce was to become convinced that this beneficial situation could never change, which of course it has done for the worse time and time again since.

Next, two changes took place that altered what it was to be British. The first change; trade unions insisted that the same pay rates should apply no matter the age or length of the employees’ service to the employer; the same wage level for a man with a home and family to support as for his responsibility-free teen-aged son employed to do a similar job. The second change; before the war, most people disapproved of and avoided involvement in hire-purchase agreements. It wasn’t considered to be respectable or wise to buy anything on credit. Post war the financial institutions eagerly focused upon the fuller pay packets of the workforce, and via the Media campaigned successfully to make hire purchase appear to be normal and respectable in the eyes of the public. The second change came through the money-makers’ realisation that working teenagers now had wage packets just waiting to be milked. Another campaign, using the tools of media, and entertainment, deliberately set about widening the generation gap so that parental sage advice and guidance based on hard experience would be ignored by their offspring. Enough of yesterday’s dreariness let’s look at today’s.

What of today, what is it to be British in 2012? In the UK it is difficult to voice an opinion without offending someone somewhere. For example, broach the subject of immigration into the UK is to be accused of opening a racist can of worms with endless heated arguments for and against, and yet really it isn’t the immigrants that the British object to. Just like we British, mostly immigrants simply want to earn an honest living, pay their taxes and dues, and to live a friendly and pleasant life amid their local community. When I refer negatively to immigrants I simply mean anyone from wherever outside of the UK who on entering the UK expects to be housed and supported by UK taxpayers. Long ago via the media we learnt that in some foreign lands tuition classes on how to claim maximum SS benefits in the UK are eagerly attended by would-be immigrants. In no other country in or outside of the European Union would immigrants be offered the same generous support as they are offered here in the UK.

The main cause of discontent for the native Briton is the way in which his or her elected governments, no matter of which political persuasion, blithely ignore reality. The British public very much want to believe in the honesty, integrity, and wisdom of its political leaders, and so we trusted a previous government, which for its own reasons and motives urged council house tenants to buy their council owned houses, and as a result the stock of nationally available council dwellings was decimated in one fell swoop. Simultaneously, and maybe the object of the exercise, the power of the trade unions was drained away because, with mortgage repayments replacing subsidised council house rents, no union member could afford the freedom and right to strike for more than a couple of weeks. The results in 2009 are ever-lengthening council housing waiting lists on which native Britons have waited in vain for years, and this even before the flow of homeless immigrants began and continued to be inserted on a priority basis on the same UK council housing waiting lists, pushing native Britons further down the lists.

At what stage do we declare that enough is enough? Unfortunately a government, comfortably cushioned against reality as its members are, that allows streams of homeless, jobless immigrants and their families to enter the UK to partake of scarce UK resources, seldom if ever consider the traumatic effect on the welfare of the tax-paying public of the government’s generosity to outsiders. I’ve nothing against immigrants, they all have human needs, but surely it would be better to aid them in their own countries, or at least limit the number of new arrivals to our shores until we have the resources to cope with them? To word it another way,” You can’t squeeze a quart into a pint pot” So why try? From where could we obtain these much needed resources? Assuming that the European Union rules demand that the UK accepts a flow of immigrants from far and wide, surely the E U should be the main source of funding to provide the required extra homes and welfare benefits?

To be British in 2012 is not very enjoyable. Anti-terrorism has been the vogue word and media theme since 9/11, and we all have been fed an indigestible diet of fear ever since, even though in the UK one is more likely to be struck by lightning than to ever be directly affected by a terrorist. The USA apparently regards itself as the self-appointed policeman of the world. Today after the Bush era of freedom-suppression thinly disguised as patriotism that this side of the Atlantic slavishly emulated, the UK, European, and USA publics are left floundering and bewildered at having been drawn into continuing highly expensive wars based in lies, greed and the thirst for oil. A side effect of the anti-terrorism industry band wagon is that today every UK citizen has no choice but to be under surveillance should he or she step out of his or her front door.

We have to expand the frontiers of our imagination to fully comprehend the multitudinous ways in which computers and security cameras are already entwined into our daily activities. Today we receive our e-mail and Spam via our computers, after those e-mails have been monitored for keyword content. In this way government computers can monitor our supposedly private communications. If we enter a shop or service station to make a purchase or to buy petrol a security camera linked to a computer records our movements, and another computer records our transaction and credit card details. When we stroll across a public square a selection of security cameras affixed to buildings dutifully records the fact. Under the blanket of national security we even have in public places some cctv cameras fitted with Tannoy systems so that should we drop a piece of orange peel or a sweet wrapper, a highly-paid policeman monitoring at a distant screen can bellow admonishments at us.    When we drive upon the public highways increasing numbers of roadside   cameras record our vehicle registration number plate, our vehicle’s speed and closeness to the vehicle ahead of us and so on. All of these high-tech devices are, I assume, installed to give us all a feeling of being safe, secure, and lovingly watched over at all times. Not so reassuring is the fact that all of these various sources of information are to be linked and made widely available to interested and caring parties, although of course not to the general public.

Here I must pause to make a point that may have been missed about those roadside security cameras although my point has more to do with the vehicles the cameras are installed to monitor. Manufacturers of motor vehicles will be faced with a major technical challenge and that is to design a vehicle capable of travelling at speeds at and below the official speed limits. To date I have yet to drive a modern vehicle that doesn’t require its driver’s eyes to be dangerously riveted upon the speedometer instead of the road ahead to keep the speed down to the 30 M P H speed limit. Here I will mention that my old 1936 Austin 7 used to cheerfully cruise at 29 MPH, admittedly it was reluctant to go any faster than that, but as modern vehicles are already endowed with unusable high speeds far above the legal speed limits this further refinement should present few problems for the manufacturers.

It must be difficult for UK governments always forced to think in terms of re-election when faced with the demands of powerful lobbyists, and pressure groups as opposed to fulfilling the generally held wishes of the wider public which is, believe it or not, made up of freewill-endowed individuals, whose massed public demonstration themes are always studiously ignored by current governments. Another case in point is that of smoking, and of drinking alcohol. The impression we are left with is that under the cover of undeniable health risk concerns especially to young people, the government, rather than courageously ban smoking and drinking, is determined to tax all smokers, drinkers, and as a side-effect, public houses, out of existence.

I consider myself to be adult enough to make my own educated decisions as to health risks in regard to smoking and drinking and so I don’t feel the need for government intervention on such a wide all-encompassing scale. By all means strictly enforce the laws regarding the sale of alcohol and tobacco products to, and consumption of by, under-age people, but please leave us adults to make our own choices. Instead use the decades of ever-increasing taxes drained only from the smokers’ and drinkers’ pockets, to supplement the National Health Service finances, depleted we are told by smokers’ and drinkers’ illnesses.

As a proud Englishman I could ramble on indefinitely but won’t, but will ask this. If a loaf of bread that cost four pence half penny old money when I was a boy, and now in 2012 costs around two pounds decimal money, does this mean that today’s pound is only worth two pence farthing old money? If so is this progress?

Obediently yours

David Brittain

 

 

 

A TAPESTRY OF SCARRED LIVES

ASCENSION SUPPORT TEAM

A TAPESTRY OF SCARRED LIVES

Regular readers of our articles will know that each article we end by offering our postal psychic services to all that may be interested. Since we began to make the offer we have been gratified by the response, and by the thought that we are able to be of assistance. Recently to our delight we received through our letterbox a perfect example of the use of discernment. A lady has written to ask us how it is possible to delve into the past-lives of people we have never met. This was a genuine enquiry, which included the expressed fear that to fulfil such an offer might run the risk of becoming intrusive. The reason for our delight was this. Although many people use our services, no one before asked us how such a thing is possible, nor have they asked what guidelines of etiquette do we use? The lady’s query inspired us to write this article to enlarge upon, and to put to rest any unexpressed doubts or fears others may have about this subject, and about our offer.

First let us be clear about what we don’t offer. We don’t offer past-lives regression therapy as a postal service. We can only offer PLR to clients who are able to visit us. During a PLR session it is the client who is encouraged to take the lead, and to relay what is being experienced to the therapist, certainly not the other way round. Obviously if the therapist is also a developed psychic medium like Yvonne the therapist will also experience what the client is experiencing. But always it is the client that leads, and the therapist that allays the client’s uncertainties and fears, and encourages the client to explore. The therapist is an invited companion on a journey into the client’s past. At all times during a session the client is well aware that on this everyday level he or she is relaxed on a couch, with Yvonne sitting nearby. Then at some point early in the session the client becomes aware that a second level has overlaid the everyday level. It is at this stage that the exploration of past lives begins for the client. It is very subtle and very gentle; a blend of inner visions and sudden intuitive “Knowing” as the client recognises people and places never seen before in this present life. The client also re-experiences the feelings and emotions felt at the time for those people and places. Our clients are of all age groups and include folks in their seventies that have never meditated and know nothing of new age thought.

How does it work? Why does it work? Let’s explore and find out. We all know that each of us has our own Soul Plan. Also that between physical lives, whilst on the Astral, we adjust our individual plans to suit current and future learning needs. This is our right because we each made our own plan in the first place. We also know that often the individual plans are allowed by us to merge with each other for a while; once again for learning or teaching purposes whilst in the physical.

In our last article we described the higher self, not as a guardian angel, but as the greater part of our individual intelligence. This greater part exists on a power-level of energy that is much higher than that of the astral levels and that of the physical level. But the focal point of this intelligence; that each of us regards as “Me” has to temporally exist on the much lower power-levels of astral or physical existence, hence the ongoing need to develop the intuitive link in meditation; the link that links each of us to our higher selves. We have recapped on this aspect of our last article for this reason. To remind readers that your higher self with all of its powers, resources and links to all knowledge, is yours. It follows your instructions, even when you’ve forgotten you previously gave them. This is very relevant to our subject. During our astral existences each of us is well aware of our individual soul plans. In the physical, as we all know, the majority of people (each one is a focal point of a higher self) have never heard of a soul plan, and yet somehow their pre-planned lessons present themselves to be learnt or not learnt. On the astral we remember our plan. In the physical we don’t remember our plan and so our plan is stored with higher self to monitor whilst we live the plan. In a similar way this PC monitors spelling and grammar as I type this article. But the PC isn’t in charge, I am. My higher self isn’t in charge, I am. Obviously if I can develop the link between my higher self, and “Me” I will make a better job of gearing my physical life to the plan that I previously made on the astral. In that sense I could say that I pre-programmed my higher self before I re-entered physical existence.

The relevance of the above soon becomes clear. Past-lives regression therapy cannot work without the co-operation of the client’s higher self, and although a client can silently ask to be shown certain past lives, usually only past lives that have affected this present life will be revealed. For example, a client that suffers an unreasoned fear of the dark in this present life, may well be shown, and relive the experience of helpless fear, suffering, and death, in the blackness of a dungeon during some past life. The difference for the client is that whilst re-experiencing the trauma of that past life, the client is re-assured by also being aware of Yvonne sitting beside the couch in this present life. In the process the unreasoned fear of darkness is converted into clear knowledge of what originally caused the fear. In Yvonne’s experience, when fear is converted into clear thought, the fear disappears as if it had never existed. During past-lives regression therapy Yvonne has watched whilst the fears and obsessions of many clients have permanently dissolved during the sessions, and this includes the fear of death, and the fear of what comes after death.

Always we have to return to the subject of the energies we radiate to, or drain from, those around us. Those energies flow through all of us continuously. What counts, is what our emotions, fears, and thoughts do to those energies before we radiate them to others. We have all met the person who, without a word spoken, can cast a spell of depression, gloom and negativity over everyone around them. This poor person’s thoughts, clouded by negative emotions, have blocked the natural flow of energy through his or her being, usually, though not always, through unawareness of the generous continuity of the flow. Really these people feel cut off and isolated from the rest, and can only drain the positive energies radiated by others.

Maybe you can accept the idea that one solitary human being can control, with awareness or unawareness, such an energy mechanism in the way we have described. If you can, then equally acceptable will be the idea that to radiate positive energies can also be a matter of awareness or unawareness. As we know, some people naturally radiate positive energy to everyone. To be with them is to feel uplifted and re-energised with optimism. They are not aware of it they just “do” it. All of you healer/seekers will have experienced the “feel” of the healing energies that flow through you, at your bidding, to heal those in need. Those in need may or may not be able to accept that flow because this is subject to the dictates of their personal soul plan. But the main thing is that you offered to, and did channel those energies. Now let us ask you, why? And as healers we will answer for you.

A person brings his or her headache to you. You tune-in, place your hands, and the headache disappears, or it doesn’t. Instead the person could have taken aspirin and the headache would or would not have disappeared. The headache is unimportant, but as there is no such thing as coincidence, the important thing is that the headache sufferer was led to “You” but why “You”?
The reason is simply because you have chosen to be a healer; to be a channel for healing energies. Now we must look at the deeper purposes of a healer. Yes, the purpose is to heal the sick, but the underlying purpose is to trigger the germination of a seed that already exists in a dormant state in each person. It is a seed of awareness that enables each person to look at self in a new and positive light. The healer can only achieve this purpose by standing aside and allowing the healing energies to irradiate to where they are needed. The energies flow first through the healer’s higher self. Obviously if the link is highly developed the flow will be greater and of a higher, thus more effective, power-level. Next the same energies must flow through the higher self of your patient, if your patient’s soul plan allows this. This explains sometimes seemingly disappointing results, but always the higher self is pre-programmed to allow the trigger effect to enter its “Me” It is the aware or unaware freewill choice of “Me” that decides to be triggered or not. In turn both the positive and negative effects of past lives and present life experiences will powerfully influence this choice. These effects are more important than the actual experiences because they are the factors that influence how “Me” regards “Me” in this moment we call “Now”. How “Me” regards “self” now will affect whether positive or negative energies are radiated now and in the future.

Now let us fit this discussion about energies into the context of Yvonne’s role as a psychic medium and a PLR therapist.
To someone who has only vague knowledge of PLR the whole idea might appear pointless. After all, if like most of us, you struggle to make ends meet in this present life, what benefit is it to know you were a rich potentate in a past life? But this is not the purpose of PLR. Let us look briefly at the progress of psychic development in recent times. We know that this development is closely allied to the increasingly higher energies flowing into our physical dimension. Just a few decades ago psychic contact relied on seances held in a darkened room, where the medium entered trance-state and Spirit used the medium to speak through.

The next evolvement was the Spiritualist church, where a medium tuned-in and then relayed psychic messages to members of the congregation. But also, members were encouraged to develop their own psychic/healing gifts in development circles. From this evolved an ever-increasing number of people who had highly developed their intuitive links. No longer were they draining from a medium’s intuitive link, they were radiating from their own. With the advent of what we call, “New Age Thought” more and more people were triggered to radiate the positive energy flow. But still there are countless millions that have yet to be triggered. That is the point of this recap about recent psychic development.

Time is short and the multitude must be triggered, and yet those who visit a medium have always up to now had to take an audience role. To bring this aspect closer to home first let’s look at Yvonne’s experience as a medium. For several years, before we left England in 1991, Yvonne had a growing circle of people who came from far and wide for clairvoyant readings. Mostly the interest of Yvonne’s clients was focused very much in the material side of life; would they get that job? Would they meet someone with whom they could share their life? Why did death steal my husband from me? And so on. Then in the late eighties Yvonne realised two things. The first was that she was channelling more and more Spiritual guidance and less material guidance to her clients. The second thing was that more and more her clients eagerly accepted this guidance as to their future spiritual work. It was as if they had been guided to Yvonne. Around the same time, like so many on the Path, Yvonne and myself in our meditations made contacts with the ascended masters and we learnt of our future supporting role in the Ascension process work. Also we began to notice the effect our combined energies had on Yvonne’s clients and those around us; obviously something that together we radiate. Here I will repeat that, like all mediums at the time, Yvonne could only offer her clients an audience role. Everything for the client had first to come through Yvonne. So now we look at the latest stage of psychic evolvement, very much linked to the higher power-level of the energies a highly developed medium is able to radiate.

I have already described some of the benefits to be gained by the one who is regressed. Emotional blockages that have been carried back and forth, life after life between physical and astral may be cleared in one or two sessions. But with so much emphasis on past lives the development I mentioned mustn’t be overlooked. It has enabled the client to take on the full role of a participant who receives direct psychic contact. Let me explain. Near the end of the session, after the client has experienced one or several past lives, Yvonne then asks the client to move forward in time to be shown and to describe a little of the future. If we didn’t already have a fair idea of what the near future holds we would be astonished at the similarity of what many diverse people have been shown. Again I will mention that many of Yvonne’s clients know nothing of the Ascension Process, End Days, or New-age thought. The vital thing we have learnt is that knowledge of what lies ahead lies dormant in every human being without exception. It only requires triggering. The beauty of this latest development is that after a client has been regressed the client is then able, with practice, to “regress” and “progress” him or herself. Lastly let’s look at our offered postal services.

Throughout history psychic mediums have faced the same danger from people who don’t understand. There is a well-known sequence familiar to most mediums. At first a person is intrigued and then filled with delighted curiosity when the medium’s predictions for them come true. Next, envy of the psychic gifts enters the scene, in ignorance of the dedicated years of hard work to gain the gifts. Next there is the suspicious fear that the medium will use the gifts to spy on the person. Finally blame arrives when a psychically predicted warning comes true; as if by predicting it the medium caused it. Hard and hurtful experience teaches a medium wisdom.

Just as healers can do absent healing, mediums are able to work at a distance. Telephone or letter contact is enough to make the psychic link-up. If the client requests information about their own past lives Yvonne regards this as permission to psychically seek out that information. Yvonne is not prepared to delve into the life or past lives of anyone who hasn’t given expressed permission.
This would be an intrusion and an abuse of Yvonne’s gifts. The past lives information will often include knowledge of the cause of present-life blockages, hidden fears and obsessions. Once again as with PLR often the knowledge of the cause completely replaces the insidious fear.

With a pendulum and a map a diviner can accurately divine at vast distances. Using her psychic gifts Yvonne can locate at a distance to rescue and release trapped souls. In fact much of our work there in the Payes du Cathare; an area of southern France soaked in the blood of massacred medieval Cathars, was the rescue/release of trapped souls. This is similar to the work done by mediums on the more recent sites of Nazi concentration camps. But then, a trapped soul knows nothing of time. We preferred to visit the sites but France is large and our car was very old and so often we had to work at a distance. Our postal service evolved quite naturally from this fact.
Throughout this article we have focused the reader’s attention on the gifts of the highly developed psychic medium. Also we have emphasised the connection between the ongoing development of the intuitive link, and the ever-increasing capacity to tune-in to ever-higher energy power-levels of existence. But this is not limited to those highly gifted psychics they are no different to you. Maybe their awareness was triggered, and their hard, lonely climb to their gifted level began many lives ago. Maybe your awareness was triggered in this life, and your conscious climb has only just begun. But your task is the same as theirs, and any energy you consciously draw down to radiate will be at a higher power-level than the power-level of physical existence.

Usually we try to fill our articles with knowledge and experience that will be helpful to seekers. For this article we felt it better to offer seekers knowledge of us and how we regard, and do our Spiritual work. We hope that by now you have a clearer idea of why we call ourselves the Ascension Support Team. Also we hope that what we have revealed has re-assured you all that PLR is a genuine healing therapy that also triggers awareness in the unaware. As usual we offer our services and publications to all that require them. Equally we offer a welcome to all seekers who may like to make contact on the, sometimes lonely, Path.
Love and Laughter to all from David and Yvonne Brittain.
