Music: Remembering the laughter & the love & the tasks before us

Everyone has something they like about Jesus, the Christ, and I reckon I’m no exception. There’s a lot to like – the Sermon on the Mount, his lessons on love, his direction that we care for those with less – and one of my favourites is the story where he throws the money changers out of the temple.

We have a lot of folks, now, who have turned this beautiful place we live in & love into a robber’s den…and the time has come to call it what it is, and turn them out.

I like the way Jackson’s song addresses this, and like him, I wish you the best of Christmases.

Love you,
Brother Ian, on the side of the Rebel Jesus


All the streets are filled with laughter and light
And the music of the season
And the merchants’ windows are all bright
With the faces of the children
And the families hurrying to their homes
As the sky darkens and freezes
They’ll be gathering around the hearths and tales
Giving thanks for all of God’s graces
And the birth of the rebel Jesus

Well they call him by the prince of peace
And they call him by the savior
And they pray to him upon the seas
And in every bold endeavor
As they fill his churches with their pride and gold
And their faith in him increases
But they’ve turned the nature that I worship in
From a temple to a robber’s den
In the words of the rebel Jesus

We guard our world with locks and guns
And we guard our fine possessions
And once a year when Christmas comes
We give to our relations
And perhaps we give a little to the poor
If the generosity should seize us
But if any one of us should interfere
In the business of why they are poor
They get the same as the rebel Jesus

But please forgive me if I seem
To take the tone of judgement
For I’ve no wish to come between
This day and your enjoyment
In this life of hardship and of earthly toil
We have need for anything that frees us
So I bid you pleasure
And I bid you cheer
From a heathen and a pagan
On the side of the rebel Jesus.

Intuitives: Remember, in that other life time?

desk2222 Those of you who have been following me know I’ve explored a number of ways the world works (and sometimes doesn’t work, the way we expect), and know that I’ve had past life regression sessions off & on since 1984.

So, it was exciting to run into Jane Jackson (here’s her website). Besides offering reiki (she worked with me to loosen up a hand/muscle problem…it was good!) and a host of other services, she also conducts sessions so that folks can review events in lives past. So I called her up. I hope you get a chance to do this, sometime.

This session was especially helpful for me, as it showed a group of folks I was with 150 years ago that includes family members and friends now. This has thrown a new (and positive) light on my connections with them then, and gives me ideas for connections this time around, including laughing about “you’re still doing THAT?” with a person who may have been a soul-mate (not in the usual present-day romantic sense, but in the traveling companion sense.)

The biggest difference between this and other sessions I’ve had was the depth of prior experience, and how I could feel it & know it. I’ll be interested to hear your experiences, too…in this session, when I would see or be around a person (from back then), I knew the whole backstory.

What I mean by that is I didn’t just feel, “Oh, that’s Bob,” but more, like looking at pictures in your school yearbook. So I would see and recognize Bob, but have all those memories and feelings and experiences with Bob, as well (which is why we keep those yearbooks, right?) The result was a deeper experience in the session, as I could feel why I was sad or glad to see someone, and what the story was, behind those feelings. It was pretty amazing, and I’m pretty sure the way Jane conducts the session contributes to that.Screen shot 2014-04-29 at 9.57.49 AM

Jane’s work focuses on personal growth (which often means addressing old pains) and personal renewal and energy release, which comes from sorting out what’s plugging things up. Take a peek at what she offers and give her a call – I’m pretty sure you’ll be glad you did!
