Difference Between Pain and Suffering?

March 1st, 2023

During my Healing Spectrums sessions and consultations, I  often work with individuals who are dealing with varying degrees of pain. Naturally, no one wants to be in pain but the questions arise: What exactly is pain and what is it’s purpose? Is pain a bad thing? How do you deal with it? And of course, is there a difference between pain and suffering?

You can think of pain as simply a built in alarm system that is… Continue reading »

Death of a Zealot

May 2nd, 2011

Thanks to my friend, Stokes, for posting this on Facebook today:

“I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.” – Jessica Dovey (attribution to Martin Luther King Jr. is a Facebook hoax)

It is certainly a complex world we live in for the evolutionary development of the human soul. True compassion knows no bounds, even for those who express the least amount or no compassion in this world through such violent acts as OBL and others throughout history and yet, those who feel relief or even joy in his death, should not feel any guilt if that is their true feeling at this time.

NDE Interview: Your Body’s Capacity For Healing

May 1st, 2011

Neurotransmitter magesHear my interview on Blog Talk Radio about awakening your healing processes

Back in December I was  interviewed on the “Unlimited Realities” Blog Talk Radio Show, with the remarkable Lisa Zimmer Mahoney, endorsed by Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Larry Dossey and other pioneers in the field of personal and spiritual development. We spoke about how the Healing Spectrums sessions quickly enliven a specific brain wave function that gives access to universal information of the unconscious mind, beyond the capacity of the conscious thinking mind, to greatly accelerate your natural healing processes.

We also announced some very special bonuses and discounts for sessions/consultations and upcoming online self-treatment training. Research has indicated…that your body’s capacity for healing is greatest when this particular brain wave function is present. Continue reading »

To Scan or Not to Scan?

December 5th, 2010

Airport ImageHow to Reduce Airport Stress:

If you have airline travel plans, you are probably aware of the policies in security, especially regarding the full body scanners or the alternative “enhanced pat down.” These are obvious invasions of your personal space and they are stirring quite a bit of controversy and adding to the general stress of airline travel. This stress takes it’s toll on your physical and emotional well-being. So it is certainly helpful to take extra steps to minimize that stress while traveling. What can you do? Continue reading »

A Day for Gratitude

November 25th, 2010

Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving

This is the time we often take to enjoy family and friends and to consider the many things in our lives that we are  grateful for. I know I am grateful for my family, friends and for the wonderful opportunitites that come to me everyday–even the ones that at first might not seem so wonderful. You know, the ones that you’re not always so grateful for as they are unfolding. The ones that after later reflection, you realize really were something to ultimately be grateful for.

But the thing I am most thankful for is…the gift of life. Continue reading »

What Time is It? It’s “Now!”

October 7th, 2010

images“With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

During my NDE many years ago, I had the opportunity to experience being with only one time–the Present. Nothing else was required. As a living, breathing human being there is obviously a purpose for the concept of Past and Future; otherwise, no one would ever think of it! Both can serve us as long as we remember that nothing happens in the Past or the Future.

My take on it:  Past: done. Future: maybe. Now: now.

(Sounds like Emerson must have been the Eckhart Tolle of his time, eh?)

Healing “Medically Unexplained Illnesses”

September 1st, 2010

coverThere is a new emerging paradigm of medicine–to advance wellness and move beyond the treatment of disease as primary care. The Healing Spectrums for Health and Wholeness Programs can play an important role in this new health care approach.


In her new book, researcher and author, Susan K. Johnson, says,  “medically unexplained illnesses are among the most common disorders in primary medical care today.” Accordingly, there has been a recent surge of interest in the physiology of illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic environmental sensitivities, and more.

The Healing Spectrums sessions and programs go even farther beyond just treating specific symptoms or illnesses… Continue reading »

Neale Donald Walsch Quote

August 29th, 2010

“The Ultimate Reality is that everything you think you need, you already have. It exists inside of you. Indeed, it is you. You are what you need – and therefore, you give yourself everything you need in any given moment.” — Neale Donald Walsch

I like this quote because it also makes me think about how this relates to health and wellness–how healing takes place. Who is actually doing the healing? With every healing session... Continue reading »

What Happens After Your Healing Session?

August 22nd, 2010

Pondering ImageYou may notice specific benefits right away or in the few days after your session. The Healing Spectrums continue to function, well after completing a session, so your physiology will continue to use this healing energy in the most efficient way for its highest good. In fact, as more and more of the remnants of trauma (I call them “artifacts”) are released, you will begin to enjoy the results of an enhanced coherence within your physiology.

This coherence is the key… Continue reading »

Where’s the Bliss?

August 20th, 2010

A friend of mine recently posted this quote by Deepak Chopra: ‎”At the source of life, and only there, one finds peace, harmony, and the undisturbed contentment of bliss.”

I reflected upon the “and only there” part for a moment and decided to write some of my own thoughts about that, in part based on my extensive near-death experience many years ago…

Does the Past Really Exist?

August 19th, 2010

Past present future ImageMy response to an article by Robert Lanza, M.D. posted on Huffington Post: August 18, 2010:

It seems most logical that one’s past can and will change as one’s present experiences change moment by moment, bringing new perception along with new information that was not known or experienced in the past. Therefore, the past can never be fully viewed or relied upon as absolute, unchanging truth. It will change based on changes in consciousness.

So does the past really exist? Is it possible for human consciousness to exist without the past?  I went through this in my own death process during a post surgical crisis.

    ........ ........ ........
    "I had a bad reaction from inadvertently breathing some vapors from the glue I was using to decorate a costume that I would be wearing in a play a couple of days later. My throat closed down and I could hardly speak. I felt terrible and had no energy. I couldn't imagine how on earth I would be able to perform, as I had many speaking lines to perform. After a session with Thomas, I quickly regained my energy and I was able to perform without difficulty. This really saved the day for me! Thanks, Thomas." -- JB, Actor, Fairfield, IA
    "I had chronic ankle pain due to working in an auto manufacturing plant and walking on concrete for most of my life. After a long-distance session, that actually took place while I was asleep, I woke up and had no pain in my ankles or anywhere else, for that matter. And, I was able to enjoy working outdoors all morning with my brother--all without a lick of pain. This really works." -- CF, Mechanic, Lexington, MO
    "I had a constant buzzing and ringing in my right ear that was driving me crazy. I always had to have a TV or radio on during the day and sleep with a fan on to mask the constant internal noise. I tried supplements that didn’t help and then visited an ENT physician and they really had no solution. Well, apparently our sessions have definitely had an impact. The buzzing has completely subsided and I only occasionally hear any ringing. This is such an amazing relief that it’s hard to express. Thanks again for your continued help and support, I couldn’t recommend the sessions highly enough. -- Best Regards, Tom R, Chicago
    (Thomas): During the group session, it became clear to me that there was some deep distress in Ken’s knees where I noticed the brilliant blue spectrums beginning to appear. During the session Ken said that he had briefly felt the pain in his knees intensify and then suddenly it was as if all the pain and discomfort he had been having just poured out through the bottom of his feet. That was it -- the pain was gone and never came back.
    "The self-treatments have helped me in healing some physical issues and I'm sleeping better than ever. I've also been trained by Thomas to use the Healing Spectrums in my work as a counselor and I seem to be able to 'tune in' more quickly to the core issues of my clients. This is really valuable to both me and my clients." -- Cheryl Bailey, Counselor, IA
    “I had chronic ankle pain due to working in an auto manufacturing plant and walking on concrete for most of my life. After a long-distance session that actually took place while I was asleep, I woke up and had no pain in my ankles, or anywhere else for that matter.

    "Before the course, I was only sleeping for 2-3 hours a night, but since Thomas' course I'm sleeping unbelievably better! 8-9 hours every night. This technique is a true blessing." - Katherine, Counselor/Coach, NY
    “I have been very impressed by the strength of the energy when doing the self-treatments. Last night I was surprised how quickly I went from feeling restless to very relaxed with a short session. Thanks so much!” — Jill
    “After our session on Thursday I felt a smooth, blissful feeling for the next few hours. In general I continue to feel more settled, grounded and calm and I’m sleeping very deeply now.” — Mary
