The Miraculous Benefits Of St. Johns Wort

St. John'swort
Hypericum perforatum
St. John'swort contains numerous compounds that possess documented biological actions, and are the focus of much study. Those constituents that have generated the most interest thus far, include the naphthodianthrones, hypericin and pseudohypericin, a wide range of flavonoids, including quercetin, quercitrin, amentoflavone and hyperin, and the phloroglucinols, hyperforin and adhyperforin. Also of interest to researchers are the essential oils, and xanthones.

Wise herbalists have always used the whole herb, and researchers agree, that it is an interaction between the many constituents in St. John's wort, rather than any one active ingredient, that is responsible for the wide range of beneficial actions this healing herb offers.

All parts of the herb are used medicinally, with hypericin content concentrated in the buds and flowers, and also present in top and bottom leaves, as well as the stem, though to a lesser degree.

Activity of Constituents:

Amentoflavone is antiinflammatory and antiulcer.

GABA is a sedative.

Hyperforin is an antibacterial agent active against gram-positive bacteria, is wound healing, a potential anticarcinogenic, and a neurotransmitter inhibitor.

Hypericin is strongly antiviral

Proanthocyanidins are antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiviral, and vasorelaxant.

Pseudohypericin is antiviral and

Quercitrin is a MAO inhibitor, as are the Xanthones.

Xanthones are antidepressant, antimicrobial, antiviral, diuretic, and cardiotonic.

St. John'swort is an excellent wound healer. It possesses strong antimicrobial properties, is a significant antifungal and antibacterial agent, and is especially effective against gram-positive bacteria. It inactivates Escherichia coli at dilutions of 1:400 or 1:200, and is also active against Staphloccus aureus.

Two constituents of the herb, hyperforin and adhyperforin possess antibiotic effects stronger than that of sulfonilamide.

Burns heal rapidly with the application of St. John'swort. In one study using St. Johns'wort oil, first, second, and third degree burns healed at least three times as rapidly than those treated with conventional treatments, and scaring was minimal. Orally administered St. John'swort tincture demonstrated a remarkable healing of incisions, excision and dead space wounds, and has also been shown to inhibit keloid formation.

Studies indicate St. John'swort may enhance coronary blood flow as well as hawthorne, due to the activity of the procyanidins. It significantly increases the production of nocturnal melatonin, which means taking it will help you sleep better, and feel better.

St. John's wort has also shown promise in the treatment of chronic tension headaches, and also appears to be liver-protective. It is a proven antidepressant, best used by those who are mildly to moderately depressed. It is also historically used to treat neurological conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, irritability, neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia. neuroses, migraines, fibrosis, dyspepsia, and sciatica.

St. John'swort is an ally when dealing with any fungal problem, such as candida (infusion as sitz bath), thrush (infusion as mouth wash), or an infection on the skin or nails(frequent soaks in infusion). Frequent applications of St. John'swort oil will also help in healing these infections.

Use the oil to rub on to tired, sore, achey, painful, overworked muscles. St. John'swort oil is legendary for relieving the pain and inflammation of back-ache, stiff neck, sore shoulders, bad knees, tennis elbow, and anything else that hurts.

St. Johns'wort has shown to be of considerable benefit to patients with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. (AIDS)

In one study, 16 out of 18 patients stabilized or improved during a 40 month period during which they were treated with St. John'swort. Only 2 of the 16 experienced an opportunistic infection during the time they took the herb.

Many studies have proven that St. John'swort inhibits a variety of viruses, including herpes simplex types 1 and 2, and HIV-1 viruses associated with AIDS. Researchers have concluded that both hypericin and pseudohypericin are uncommonly effective antiviral agents.

St. John's wort is also active against murine cytomegalovirus, para-influenza 3 virus, Sindbis virus, vesicular stomatitis virus, and equine infectious anemia virus.

The antiviral activity of St. John's wort appears to be somewhat photodynamic, involving a photoactivation process to become more intensely effective. Internal use of St. John'swort is not recommended if you are currently taking a pharmaceutical antidepressant.

Sunscreen Hazards

I've been saying this for years. Now the research is finally coming out to prove it: sunscreen use actually causes cancer, according to comprehensive new research published in the U.K.

There are two primary reasons why sunscreen causes cancer. First, and most importantly, the use of sunscreen blocks the skin from absorbing the sun's rays. That's what it's supposed to do, right? Yes, but in doing so, it also blocks the creation of all-essential vitamin D, the nutrient that the human body desperately needs to prevent as many as 25 chronic diseases. Notably: prostate cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis, schizophrenia and heart disease.

It turns out that most people living in the Northern hemisphere (which probably includes you) are chronically deficient in vitamin D. By wearing sunscreen, they're depriving their bodies of perhaps the single most important nutrient they need to stay healthy.

The second reason sunscreen causes cancer is because it contains toxic chemicals in the form of artificial fragrance, chemical colors and petroleum products used as fillers and stabilizers. These chemicals are absorbed through the skin where they enter the bloodstream and wreak havoc on the immune system. Artificial fragrances, just by themselves, may contain dozens of carconigenic chemicals that damage the liver, the heart, and even promote systemic cancer.

Of course, the sunscreen manufacturers continue to deny all this while propagating the ridiculous myth that, "There's no such thing as a healthy tan." In reality, there's no such thing as a healthy pale person! A tan is a bonafide sign of good health, and a deep tan actually protects you from cancer.

All this has come out in this comprehensive new research report entitled, "Sunlight Robbery." To summarize the findings of the report, "To ensure optimum levels of vitamin D and optimum health people in the UK need to sunbathe whenever they can wearing as few clothes as possible while taking care not to burn. Vitamin D obtained from food provides only about 10% of our needs."

The Violet Flame And Transmutation

FOR CENTURIES, alchemists have sought to change base metals into gold. But the transmutation of metals like lead into gold is symbolic of a higher and more noble alchemy -- the alchemy of self-transformation.

SELF-TRANSFORMATION was the goal of the most spiritual of alchemists. They sought a way to change the lead of negative human energy into the gold of divine energy, and some of them achieved this by using the violet flame. But first, let's explore what the violet flame is, what it does and how it works.

The violet flame (also called the violet fire) is a unique spiritual energy that can help you in all areas of your life. It can heal emotional and physical problems, improve your relationships, help you to grow spiritually, or just make life easier.

The flame is the essence of a unique spiritual light. Mystics of all ages have glimpsed a "spiritual spectrum" behind the physical spectrum. Radiant colors, more pure and rare than those found on earth, emanate from a brilliant, "inner" divine light. Just as a ray of sunlight passing through a prism refracts into seven colors, spiritual light splits into seven colors, or "rays" - each of which has specific divine qualities. The violet flame comes forth from the violet ray, which has the qualities of mercy, forgiveness, freedom and transmutation.

The color violet has long been associated with spirituality. Having the highest frequency in the visible spectrum, violet is at the point of transition to the next octave of light. To the ancients, this transcendental color was a spiritual rather than a physical phenomenon.

Saints and adepts throughout the ages have known how to use the violet flame, but it was only released to the public earlier this century by an Ascended Master called Saint Germain. Ascended Masters are enlightened spiritual beings who once walked the earth like you and me. They balanced their karma (paid their debts to life) and fulfilled their reason for being. They then ascended, or reunited with God. You probably already know the names of a few Ascended Masters - Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha and Krishna.

What the Violet Flame Does

Ever wish there was a way you could wipe out your past mistakes?

While you can't go back in time, the violet flame has the power to erase, or transmute the cause, the effect, and even the memory of our past mistakes. Transmutation means to change - to alter in form, appearance or nature. The violet flame changes negative energy into positive energy, darkness into light, "fate" into opportunity. The flame also erases the resultant "bad karma" of our mistakes.

Our past actions - both good and bad - do come back to us. This is the law of karma. This impersonal cosmic law decrees that whatever we do comes full circle to our doorstep for resolution; simply, what goes around comes around.

In general, most people must pay their debt to life, or "balance" their karma, by selflessly reaching out and helping others, by working through misfortunes that come their way, or by passing through diseases or other forms of personal suffering. But it need not be so with the violet flame! The violet flame is able to transmute or mitigate our negative karma before it comes back to us.

On the physical level, the violet flame can help heal our bodies by removing the karma that makes us vulnerable to illness and disease. But the real cause of disease is often rooted in our mental, emotional and spiritual states.

Today, we are discovering more and more about how our thoughts and emotions can affect our health. Research has shown that hatred and other negative thoughts and feelings actually create excess amounts of acid in the body that it cannot assimilate. These negative thoughts and feelings often originate in emotional and psychological problems, which the violet flame can help to resolve. The scars of old hurts and painful memories may be healed and dissolved when the healing balm of the violet flame is applied.

How the Violet Flame Works

The violet flame works by changing "vibrations". In physics, vibration is the speed of oscillation - the speed at which something moves back and forth. On the atomic level, vibration can be understood to be the speed at which electrons orbit around the nucleus of the atom. The violet flame works by changing vibrations on this level.

Atoms are mostly empty space. The empty space between the nucleus and the electrons is where negative energy and karma can become stuck. When the atoms in our bodies and auras become clogged with this negativity, the electrons whirl slower and slower, and we begin to resonate more with negativity, and less with light - we have a lower vibration, and become less spiritual.

The violet flame transmutes this negative energy. It does not simply surround and remove the energy, but transforms it into light. Because there is less density within the atom, the electrons whirl faster and faster, thereby raising your vibration.

When you have a higher vibration, there is more spiritual energy in your body. Acupuncturists and yogis know that optimum health comes when this spiritual energy flows freely throughout the body. The violet flame frees up this energy and re-establishes harmony and equilibrium, propelling you into a more spiritual state of being.

The Alchemist's Dream

The violet flame is a tool of self-transformation. Physical experiments in alchemy whereby base metals are transformed into gold are symbolic of what the violet flame does.

In medieval times, alchemists attempted to transmute base metals into gold, using heat to separate the "subtle" from the "gross". While there have always been alchemists who sought to create wealth by transmuting base metals, this process of transmutation is symbolic of a higher and more noble alchemy - the alchemy of self-transformation.

Alchemists of the Spirit did not seek physical wealth, but spiritual wealth. They sought to transform themselves into more spiritual beings, by becoming more loving, wise and compassionate. The violet flame has the capacity to bring about this transformation by transmuting negative elements within ourselves. It has the unique ability to transform fear into courage, anxiety into peace and hatred into love.

Alchemists of all ages have sought the mystical philosophers' stone. Early alchemists pored over minutely ciphered texts in search of this stone. For them, it was worth a lifetime to decode the mystery of this "stone" which symbolized the transmutation of the lower animal nature into the highest and divine. The coveted philosophers' stone - "the stone which is no stone" - was not physical, but spiritual, and created out of fire.

Some alchemists did discover the secret of the violet flame. According to Neoplatonist alchemists, the philosophers' stone was a self-transforming fire that would lead their souls upward, by drawing up to the Spirit all qualities which dragged downward and opposed the spiritual essences. In the process, the "hard and refractory materials" in their bodies would be transmuted into a rare and more luminous material. In this sacred experiment, they said the alchemist would become "like the gods", pursuing "the gold of the wise and not the vulgar metal".

Transmutation, then, was not just a process which turned base metals into gold, but a spiritual process which raised the soul into a state of unity with the Divine.

How to Use the Violet Flame

The violet flame is practical and easy to use.

Find a place where you won't be disturbed, and sit comfortably in a straight chair with your spine and head erect, legs and arms uncrossed and feet flat on the floor. Rest your hands on your upper legs, with palms facing upwards.

The violet flame is invoked through "decreeing" - a unique form of spoken prayer utilizing visualization and meditation. One of the simplest decrees to the violet flame is: "I AM a being of violet fire! I AM the purity God desires!" Take a few, slow deep breaths and center in your heart. Start out slowly, giving the decree with love, devotion and feeling. Repeat the decree three or nine times to begin with; you can gradually increase this to 36, 72 or even 144 repetitions. Repeating the decree strengthens its power and draws down more light.

Once you are familiar with the decree, you can close your eyes while giving it and concentrate on visualizing the violet flame. See yourself before a large bonfire, about nine feet high and six feet wide. Color it violet in your imagination, and see the flames pulsating and undulating in endless shades of violet with gradations of purple and pink. Then see yourself stepping into the flame, so the violet flame is where you physically are. See your body as transparent, with the flames curling up from beneath your feet, passing through and around your body, clear up over your head.

Often the words of a violet flame decree invoke ideas for other violet flame visualizations - decreeing is meant to be fun so be creative and use your imagination!

To those who have developed their spiritual sight, the violet flame appears as a physical violet fire. You may also be able to "see" the violet flame at work with your inner eye, by concentrating on the spiritual center between your eyebrows.

You can also use the violet flame to help family and friends. Just visualize the violet flame around them while you give the decree, and add a prayer before you start. The violet flame can also help others that you might not be aware of. After you have finished decreeing, you can ask: "In the name of the Christ within me, I ask that this violet flame be multiplied and used to assist all souls on this planet who are in need. I thank you and accept it done according to the will of God."

Even a few minutes of violet flame will produce results, but persistence is needed to penetrate age-old habits you would like to change. You can start out with just a few minutes of violet flame in the morning to help you through the day, and you can add the violet flame to whatever prayers or meditations you currently practice.

What Do Others Think of the Violet Flame?

Here's what people who have used the violet flame say:

"Well, I think a lot clearer. I feel lighter. I'm a lot more sensitive to vibrations. And I feel the movement of light almost physically rather than just at subtle levels."

"My relations with people are lighter and more smooth. I don't have that sense of friction."

"At one time I was heavy on drugs and I knew I'd gone too far. The violet flame has cleared up my memory so that now I can think clearly and creatively."

"It gives me emotional control and the ability to be more sensitive to the thoughts of God."

"The violet flame is amazing. It's opened up so many creative areas of my life. It's a science and a great gift from God. It has revolutionized my life in so many ways. It has allowed me to realize the real potential of my soul, by bringing me closer to God and my personal mission. On more than one occasion the violet flame has healed me of illnesses that have afflicted my body, especially chronic back problems."

"As a surgeon for 10 years, I am humbled by learning about this science. Practicing this has brought amazing results in my life and my medical practice."

You can use the violet flame and experience the healing, transformation and spiritual upliftment that alchemists of the Spirit have sought for centuries. But if you want the violet flame to help you, you have to work with
it. Try it for yourself!

Conversation With Saint Germain

The following channel is taken from a private session with Saint-Germain. It is reproduced here with the client's consent.

Dear Saint-Germain,

How am I supposed to feel?

When I listen to my heart, so often I hurt myself, sometimes unbearably... Right now I want to call my ex-husband to whom I was married for [some decades]... [I want to tell him] that I do not despise him, but understand how the heaviness...became too much for him and sucked him down into its darkness.

But if I do that now, call him and talk to him, I will be broken again for many days to come, carrying in me his pain as well. Would it heal me to free him? And free myself towards others?...

I do not understand men. How am I supposed to feel? In my worst times I feel rejected; a fool for having come out and made myself vulnerable and trusting. I should have known better by now...

Help me to believe that it is God's Will that I have a life of joy without the underlying grief in my heart that I have carried as a ground tone for most of my life...Thank you.

Indeed my friend,

It is time for joy now. It is time for joy to enter your life, and for the underlying tone of sadness you have been experiencing to leave.

You've been going through these intense, transformational changes for such a long time. And you have been living with grief for much of this, as well. You might say that the experience of grief has become "second nature" for you.

But, I am asking you this now. "Is this grief your Truth?"

Is grief your true nature?

My friend, grief has become so familiar to you that you have come to identify yourself with it. You have come to believe that sadness is an inevitable part of your life, and that relationships without suffering are not really relationships.

You have created the potential for love, followed by suffering and grief, to be the underlying tone in all your relationships - no matter what type of relationships they are.

What is Passion?

You live your life and your relationships with great "passion," this is true. But with the dualistic confusion that often accompanies the energy behind this word.

Passion can be expressed as strong love and fervent desire. But passion was equally and originally meant to express suffering. Consider the Passion of Christ. This kind of passion was the love that was expressed by a man who was martyred for Love's sake.

Is this you?

Do you really need to play with these notions?

I am asking you now to be honest with yourself, and to look at all of your relationships.

Viewing Relationships as Tragic

Look at the hidden beliefs and assumptions that you hold about relationships, for these are setting the emotional tone for all of your experiences.

Does part of you believe that "true love" is meant to be? That this is the truest longing of your heart and soul? That this is your destiny?

Do you believe that there is a perfect love, or a perfect lover for you? That all you need to do is align yourself with this deeper longing of the soul, and it shall be so? That this is your destiny, and that you will do everything in your power to cooperate with it?

Is there another part of you that believes, with equal fervor, that fate is cruel and ironic, especially to those who love?

Is there another part of you that believes your portion of good and evil was allotted to you at birth. And that despite everything you do to collaborate with your destiny, certain outcomes are fated, unpleasant, and unavoidable for you?

Do you believe that even the will of the gods can be thwarted by the fates?

Do you believe that destiny and fate, good and evil, are in conflict... and that human beings are nothing more than pawns in this game? Something to be sacrificed? Something expendable?

This is tragic thinking, pure and simple.

If you have been allowing these kinds of thoughts and feelings into your life, then there is no doubt that your experiences will have been quite intense. Especially your experiences with love.

My dear friend, you have been living a Greek tragedy. You have been living life with the passionate expression of a classic Greek drama.

The ancient Greeks understood dramatic structure very well. They invented it, and they were masters of it. It is compelling. It is evocative. And it is powerful.

It is filled with noble love, compelling destiny, and cruel fate.

But it is a construct. A story.

It is not a formula for living.

Let it go.

Who Are You, Really?

Now, let's have a look at where this disappointment is coming from.

Your difficulties are coming from an over-identification with the ego, and with one or more of its dominant sub-personalities.

[Sub-personalities are strong beliefs about who you are that seem to have a life of their own. They are the roles that you play and the masks that you wear to feel acceptable. They are part of the "false you," the ego, which believes it has been abandoned by God. They are not Who You Are in Truth.

You are a Child of God, and God also. This is the Truth About You. Remembering this Truth often, is a way to free yourself from the pain and suffering caused by the ego. - Alexandra and Dan]

Throughout the years, you have held onto a grand vision for your life... and you were expecting things to appear accordingly. You've worked faithfully to turn this vision into reality

But there is a part of you, a sub-personality, that has been confronted with a different situation. This part of you has felt challenged and has said, "I don't know how to make this vision work. How can I make it into something tangible and real?"

As you shared this vision with others, including your partners, you have met with resistance. This part of you began to feel badly about itself and say, "I suppose people don't really understand me after all, and I guess I don't really understand them, either."

The differences between the expectations supported by the "visionary you," and the fears experienced by the "misunderstood you," have created great discomfort, pain, and even suffering in your life. This has placed a high emotional cost upon you, as you continue to hold onto your vision. It has ensured that certain important experiences in your life have felt heavy and limited, and that there is little room for the free expression that you value so much. This has caused you to feel alone in the world with your dreams.

My dear friend, as you started to feel alone in the world, a part of you began to identify strongly with this experience of life. This sub-personality called "Misunderstood" has believed deeply that you are alone with your dreams, and that there is no one to share them with, as much as you might desire it. This same part of you has begun to feel resignation toward experiencing love in your life again.

This sub-personality has seen to it that every time you try to experience love with a friend, a partner, and sometimes even with yourself, you feel alone, misunderstood, and abandoned. It does this to protect you. But its motivation is confused.

Because this sub-personality believes that you are really "Misunderstood," it tries to protect you in the only way it knows how. First, it populates your life with people who will likely misunderstand you, because these are the only kind of people it is able to recognize. Then when you feel the desire to relate to them, it is virtually guaranteed that they will not be able to relate fully to you or support your vision. "Misunderstood" has seen to this!

"Misunderstood" keeps you from forming close relationships with people, because she chooses people for you that are consistent with her belief about who you are... a "Misunderstood Visionary."

In this distorted way, she believes that she is loving you and protecting you from harm. But she does this at the expense of the other parts of you that have to suffer alone.

Who Is Protecting You?

"Misunderstood" only sees the potential for experiencing pain in relationships, so even before you have the chance to experience yourself in these situations, she is reminding you to be careful. To be watchful, and wary, because the life of a misunderstood visionary is hard.

This consistent experience of identifying yourself as "Misunderstood" has given rise to another sub-personality. Because "Misunderstood" has felt weak, unappreciated, and unable to enjoy relationships fully, she has given birth to the companion that she feels she needs.

She has given birth to a strong "Individualist"... someone who can hold the vision, keep the flame burning, and stand alone, despite the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune," as our good friend, Hamlet, might say.

So, another sub-personality of yours has come into play. A part of you that you know so well. A little sarcastic, a little bitter, and even cynical. And especially in relationships with men, it needs to show them (and you) how strong and wise you are. You might have startled yourself at times, when you recognized that this sub-personality was telling you how unworthy they were of your love.

And all these ego games were part of your relationships. You would feel great love toward these people, and then you would feel how they didn't deserve you. You would want to share your love with them and be vulnerable; but at the same time, you would want to let them know that you are strong, and that your love is incorruptible.

All your life, these sub-personalities have played games with you... this "Misunderstood Visionary" and the "Disapproving Individualist." Each of them has been giving you their best take on your life. You listen to them at times, but when you do, they always lead you back to the same experiences again and again. The experience remains the same. Only the relationships change.

Breaking Down the Pattern

My dear, now is the time to break down this pattern. It is time for you to step into remembering your true nature, Who You Really Are in truth. It is time to bring Love and Truth into your life again. It is time that you step up and acknowledge the Truth of your Identity.

None of these games that have been played represent Who You Really Are. None of them actually expresses your Divinity. They are just games conjured up by your ego, with players who compete for turn in endless and painful succession.

When you are ready, I ask you to sit for a moment in silence, and breathe. Remember again the truth of your Divinity. Breathe deeply and evenly. Receive the guidance that is offered to you from your Soul. Breathe and feel us all there, by your side, reminding you that you are loved and cherished, and how wonderful you are.

We are here to guide you, and to remind you of the True Love that you hold in your heart. This True Love is your Divinity. It is Who You Really Are.

Bring that Love to the surface, and let it wash away all the pain, cynicism, and suffering that you've endured for such a long time.

And as you do this, feel the peace that you can surrender to. That you can release yourself into.

Please, accept this peace into your life, and let go completely of the need to understand what is going on.

Be still, and listen to the still, quiet voice within your heart. It is whispering words of love and encouragement to you.

And when you are done, and you desire to come back, let's take another look at your relationships.

A Second Look at Your Relationships

From this new place of silence and peace, please bring into the light these conflicting parts of yourself. These sub-personalities that have been playing this game of hurt, abandonment, and pain with you.

Call them here, and look at them now. They're exhausted by the roles they've been playing. They have been trying to protect you from being hurt. Trying to protect you from abandonment. Trying to keep the pain of separation away from you.

They don't realize that the very thing they claim to protect you from, they are actually calling into your life.

So, let's look at them again. Look at the tactics they use to hold onto you, so fiercely. They are not willing to let go of you so quickly. How else would they survive without the energy of belief and credibility that you provide them?

In order to be free of their dominance, you cannot struggle with them, judge them, or reject them. They are part of you. You birthed them in moments of stress, fear, and doubt. Instead, they need to know that you love them, that you accept them, and that you welcome them back home into the integrated Being That You Are. They need to know that they will be fine.

Can you feel how scared and frightened they are? This is the energy they've been serving you with for so long.

Now, turn back to yourself... Back to your peace and silence. Feel it deeply. Feel that from the depth of your Being, how the love and compassion in your heart comes to embrace these parts of you. It is there for them - completely. Without judgment. It is not forced upon them.

As you embrace them, you are able to make a new decision for yourself.

You choose to let the "integrated you," the whole and perfect you, be the guiding force in your life.

Feel this, please.

As you resume leadership over your inner life, please recognize that these sub-personalities have scattered and dissipated your energies for years with their unfounded doubts and fears.

Look at the fear - the anger, pain, hurt, and resentment that they have used to keep you cowed and cornered. These are tactics that they use, and you know them so well. They've been part of your life for so long. But now you understand them, and you no longer need to bring them in your life.

You no longer need to use them in your relationships. Your relationships can be easy. They can be fun, and flowing.

They don't need to be difficult, or emotionally demanding. They don't need to squeeze the life out of you, or depress you.

As you live your life from this renewed and integrated place, you will discover that there is nothing you really need to forgive of others. The "integrated you" - the one who remembers your Divinity - knows that forgiveness is just the act of correcting any misperceptions that you've held about yourself and the world.

Remembering your Divinity is the heart of forgiveness; for the transgressions you perceive against you, the hurts and the injustices, are just illusions. They are not Real.

Experiencing forgiveness means that you have remembered your Divinity. And in doing that, you realize that all struggle and pain is unnecessary and non-existent.

Forgiveness does not require you to martyr yourself for the sake of love, as so often it is represented in the mis-portrayed life of Christ. Instead, it is a simple remembrance of Love and Truth.

From this place, can you look at your relationships again, and at the questions you had?

Can you see that by releasing your allegiance to these various sub-personalities, and identifying with the Truth About You, instead, you can end this pain and suffering?

Then, you will no longer need the approval or understanding of the ones you are involved with in a relationship. Instead you take charge of your inner life fully, knowing that nothing can hurt you, and that you will never be abandoned.

And so, you will progress, step-by-step. From re-affirming your Divinity, you will begin to feel more confident about sharing your Divinity with others.

The recognition of your Divinity will be the standard that you use to invite new relationships into your life. You will no longer use the old and worn-out tactics of these sub-personalities. You will choose to share your Divinity, and not your fears and misgivings, with others.

You will open the doors to relationships that respond to the Truth About You. You will invite people and situations into your life that resonate with your awareness of your Divinity. And as you do, any previous relationships that you have will change, too. Their purpose will become clear to you - as the gift of clarity is one of the attributes of your Divinity.

And so, my dear friend, I see the doors opening for you to experience joy again in your life. I see that you have great potential to experience flow and ease - with yourself, and with everyone who might be invited into your life.

And so it shall be, my dear. And so it shall be.

I Am, indeed, Saint-Germain.
