I often finish work just before 6pm so that I can settle down on the sofa with a glass of Merlot and a handful of nuts to watch the BBC news. Last Wednesday’s opening story had me in despair before I could put glass to lip or crunch a walnut. Quite rightly, in my opinion, the BBC showed images that for once were truly disturbing. Their report showed pictures of a Turkish police officer carrying the body of a small boy from a beach. The boy, Aylan, his brother and mother had drowned in a desperate attempt to reach a Greek island within the European Community. When I thought about it a little later in the evening, I became alarmed as to my “normal” state of insensitivity. I realized that it had taken such harrowing images to arouse one of the foremost “Natural Principles” within me.
Compassion is that foremost Natural Principle
I say alarmed, as it would appear that in order for events of human suffering in other areas of the world to truly grab my attention these days, ever more shocking input is required from my outer senses. It’s no longer enough to read or hear of hundreds of migrants perishing in the waters of the Mediterranean, or of dozens of refugees suffocating to death in the back of a truck in Austria, or of asylum seekers risking life and limb to scramble over razor wire at the Channel Tunnel entrance, for me to sit up and focus.
This book explores the ten “Natural Principles” presented in my first bookIt’s About You! Know Your Self. Gleaned from spiritual and metaphysical wisdom, the Natural Principles provide you with an ethical and vital code by which to live your life. They are not a set of laws or commandments from on high; they are a purified set of behavioral guidelines—primarily mental behavioral guidelines—unadulterated by institutional dogma.
In addition to the “Law of Attraction,” the Natural Principles are at the heart of the vital power that drives the Universe, Consciousness – and your consciousness. They are the integral, intimate refinements that constitute the power of “Divine Love.”
Listed within this book are a set of “Natural Principles.” Gleaned from spiritual and metaphysical literature, they provide you with an ethical and vital code by which to live your life. They are derived from the natural forces, the “laws of the inner universe,” that drive everything in existence.

Arachnophobia – symbolic of our fear of disconnection?
After lunch, I headed over to the teaching room for the start of sessions. I picked out a chair from the circle placed around the room and sat down. As I waited for my fellow students to arrive, my thoughts turned to my conversation with Karina. Her remarks on the symbolism of spiders as told by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon, was both encouraging and intriguing to me.
I’ve always had a professional fascination with the fear of spiders. In my counseling work, I’m aware that treating arachnophobia requires a different approach from other phobias and irrational fears. The therapeutic technique I use from Energy Psychology methods has its own distinct protocol. Furthermore, when it comes to irrational fears, arachnophobia beats all. Interestingly, it is the most prevalent phobia in the Western world—yet apparent not so within indigenous cultures.
What is it about spiders that puts them top of the scary things list?
Why is this phobia such a significant part of the human condition?
Our Western rational minds cannot figure this out. Our fearful response to spiders far outweighs their inherent threat to our survival. After all, the majority of spiders are quite harmless and their physical presence is hardly an imposing one—unless they gang up of course.

The primary aim of this book is to help get you through humanity’s “shift in consciousness.”
The fact that you are reading this suggests that it’s doubtful you haven’t heard about this so-called “Shift,” but whether you’ve heard about it or not, it’s likely you’ll ask yourself, “What’s it got to do with me?”
The Shift is a psychological Mass Event that will eventually affect everyone. It is an evolutionary transition within the collective psyche of the human race. That is, the psychological patterning that we consensually adhere to, on who we Continue reading “How To Be In Divine Love”
