Highlights of Five Days “In Heaven”

June 2015

After the delightful lesson about being “in heaven,” I understood that during Book Expo America, I was to maintain as high a connection with the Divine as possible, holding the intention of “being blessing.”  I did feel highly connected, as though my vibration were raised during the five days of the Book Expo, so it did not surprise me that there were two groups of people who seemed “drawn” to me, and I to them.

One set of new friends was from the Center for Taweel Studies, where they practice and teach mystical Islam, basically Sufi-like teachings, including union with the Divine, or Self-Realization.  Beautiful souls, this small group of lovely “instant” friends was originally from Sudan, but are now scattered into other countries.  Our sense of truth and spirituality were essentially the same at the core.  They were present because one of them, Youssef Badreldin wrote a wonderful book called The Fallacy of the Islamic State.  Badreldin taught me that the word “Islam” simply means “submit to Allah,” or in English, “submit to God.”  That is the core activity of any and all religions, as far as I can tell.  Of course, how we understand God makes a difference.  They clearly understand God as loving, peaceful, and creating unity among human beings.  A few of them actually purchased my book, for which I am immensely grateful.

The other group of people with whom I experienced a mutual attraction were the folks from Gita Publishing, specifically Anita and Naresh, a lovely, gentle, and humble couple who, upon meeting me, asked me to give a copy of my book to their guru, Dada.

I thought to myself, he’s a guru – he doesn’t need a copy of my book!   But they were so beautiful and sincere, that of course I signed a copy of my book and gave it to him.  I had felt led to write blessings channeled from the Ascended Masters for everyone for whom I signed a book, but I really struggled with the idea of how to write a blessing for a God-Realized master!

The next thing I knew, these lovely souls who had just met me said they would like me to write a biography of Dada!  I thought, you just met me!  How can you know that?  I felt deeply honored and happy at the thought.

The next day, dear, sweet Anita and Naresh returned, and told me that they were holding my book so that I could give it to Dada myself, and that they would like me to meet him after the expo, perhaps Sunday evening in New Jersey.  I just decided to go with the flow and to feel non-attached to the whole process, letting happen whatever would happen.

One of the two other highlights of the expo was connecting with individuals who were interested in my book, and for whom I channeled blessings, or did miniature healings!   There were a lot of hugs and tears in most of these situations, and a whole lot of Divine love.  What a beautiful opportunity to bless and be blessed by lovely souls connecting on this journey.

The final main highlight was that, along with the fun of meeting other self-published authors, I did meet a few publishers, a literary agent, and a best-selling author who gave me the name of the publisher who discovered Neal Donald Walsh.  Connections just flowed as needed, apparently.

What a blessing to be present at the Book Expo and to meet so maMWTM front coverny people whom I ordinarily would never meet!  I am so glad I attended, and grateful to God and to my niece and her husband for graciously hosting me in their home (and on the train to-and-from the city).  God’s infinite blessings appear in so many different forms; may we have the eyes to perceive them, and the will to be a blessing to others.

Love and Light,

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
