|AH-MAN FREEDOM NEWSLETTER
News from Ah-Man
is known for Father's Day, so I want to acknowledge all the men
who have played important roles in all of our lives. They may not all have been fathers in the
traditional sense of the word, but they
helped shape us and instilled qualities in us that have made us better
So let's take a moment
and honor all of these men with a prayer of thanks.
Beginning with the main article below, I'll be sharing my thoughts and observations on the Divine Masculine, Our Father. And I'll be continuing the discussion throughout the month of June in the Ah-Man Blog.
I will talk about what the Divine Masculine looks
like, how it feels, how one might use it to reach their goal of Transcendental
I invite you to join me by sharing your own personal reflections and comments on the Divine Masculine and Fathers.
Until next time.
|HONORING OUR FATHER(S)|
What you are about to read is only a glimpse of the
Volumes have been
written on both The Divine Feminine and The Divine Masculine.
The Divine Masculine can guide you to The Divine
Feminine, just as The Divine Feminine can lead you to The Divine Masculine.
They can work hand in hand or separately to achieve Self Realization. But, in reality, they are never really separate,
at least not in the transcendental sense. In fact, they are One and the same. They bring you back home, back to Self.
For thousands of years, both The Divine Masculine
and The Divine Feminine have been uniting Jiva Atma with Param Atma...individual
soul with Supersoul...Human and God.
Generally, if you come from a monotheistic
background, i.e., Christianity, Islam or Judaism, you might picture an old man when
someone mentions our Heavenly Father. On
the other hand, if you were raised in the polytheistic belief, e.g., Hinduism,
Vishnu, Brahma, Shiva or Patanjali, etc., or raised a Buddhist, maybe you would
think of Siddhartha Gautama/The Buddha (or for Zen Buddhism/Daruma). And if you
were raised in a Pantheistic way, the Universe might come to mind when you
think of The Father.
These are all common visual ways of identifying
with the Masculine Energy of God. I want
to dive more into the Masculine Energy of The Divine. What that looks like, how it feels, how one
might practice it and where it can take you.
Each week in June, I will select a religion and
help you understand it more, and explain how that religion helps one enter into
the masculine energy of God.
Be sure to check out the Ah-Man Blog in June, for additional discussion of The Divine Masculine.
|RETREATS AND SPEAKING EVENTS|
When it comes to learning how to cope and enrich your life,
sharing the thoughts and experiences of others via blog can be effective, but
nothing beats the healing impact of human interaction. And that's what I
provide at my retreats. You will better understand your own life
experiences and the resulting disconnection from your heart.
My goal -
and passion - is helping men and women free themselves from pain caused by different
types of trauma, neglect and abuse and to begin using the foundational
elements of Trust, Forgiveness, and Acceptance to live fuller and more
peaceful lives on their journey to becoming WHOLE.
An updated event schedule will be published in the next edition of the Ah-Man Newsletter.
Finding Peace Through Forgiveness
This retreat is designed for anyone who has experienced hurt in their life. The pain we feel from being hurt continues to manifest itself in our lives. Resentment and pain continue to affect our thoughts and the decisions we make, either knowingly or, in most cases, unknowingly. During the retreat, I will share my own miraculous experiences with forgiveness and show how forgiveness cannot happen without healing on the Emotional, Spiritual and/or Mystical levels. I will also expose some of the myths about forgiveness. During the session, I will also guide attendees through meditations of forgiveness, and invite you to see opportunities to grow where there were none. Join me to find out how to have more peace in your life about your past, and to learn the secret of being human.
