"Positive thought has been
linked to less stress, happier moods, and enhanced health. A
recent study now shows that when you think positive you can boost
the effectiveness of medicinal drugs. When participants were told
positive information about a migraine medication they reported
30% more improvement in symptom reduction than when told negative
information, or no information at all. According to lead
researcher Ted Kaptchuk, 'Every word you say counts, not only every
gram of the medication.'"

What Is the Spiritual Path?
Love and Our Sacred Wound
This is the month of love, or so Hallmark
tells us. It's Valentine's Day in a few days and we'll celebrate
that day as one to honor that special someone -- our life
mate/spouse/romantic partner/love of our life/soul mate. That one
person who rings our bell and touches our heart at its deepest
level. That one person with whom we have chemistry.
The Spiritual Path celebrates all soul mates and cheers you
on to build happy life with fulfilling memories together. This
month's publication is about love, but takes a different tack.
It's about the sacred wound. Just what is a sacred wound and what
is its connection to love and our soul mate? Phillip answers
those questions in "Phillip's Wisdom" so be sure to
read it. Also, be sure to read Ways You Can Be of Service To Your
Life and Others so you heal that sacred wound and live a greater
life filled with love. Then keep on scrolling to read my article
"When Soul Mates Meet, Fall in Love, and Crash."
This issue of The Spiritual Path speaks only to the
individual sacred wound, but I believe we also take on an
ancestral sacred wounding, that of our gender, and that of our
nation, as well as that of our world. However, this is just one
issue and this topic is much larger as it is. We do hope that you
are able to gain some understanding of the sacred wound from the
information in this issue, and that it helps you along your

The Sacred Wound: A Conversation with Phillip
This is a question and answer session I had
with Phillip about the sacred wounding.
what is a sacred wound?
A. It is
the wounding the soul agrees to take on when entering human life
for the purpose of healing the wound and evolving the species.
everyone come into life with a sacred would to heal or is it only
something that some of us take on?
souls have a sacred wound, but not all recognize this to be so.
do we know what our sacred wound is?
A. It is
written in the patterns of your life. Study these patterns and
the sacred wound will reveal itself when the human being is ready
to commence with healing.
are the types of sacred wounds we should look for?
your world, the most common are abandonment, which springs from
the physical or emotion abandonment of a child by one or more
parent(s); lack of a sense of self, what you might call a lack of
confidence in the self's ability to live and thrive in this
world, which comes from a lack of nurturing and encouragement
during a child's developmental years; depression and other mental
illnesses, which is an inability to connect with the true spirit
of the individual that is caused by childhood trauma and/or
imbalances within the physical brain; and addiction that causes
the individual to withdraw from life because of a lack of skills
and brain function to cope with their own sensitivity, which is
often caused by the shock of a new soul coming into Earth life or
an older soul who has experienced this before and wishes to work
on the healing of this wound.
The soul sets up the conditions for their life
in accordance to what they choose to experience. For example, if
a soul chooses abandonment as the sacred wound, that soul would
chose to be born into a family where one of the parents will
leave the family through death or other means or that soul might
choose to be born to parents who are unable to raise the child so
the child is raised by another family with whom the child has
past lives influence the sacred wound we choose before we enter
life experiences most certainly influence the soul's choice of
what to experience in this life. There is not always a direct
correlation in that [for example] the abandonment wound does
not always mean the individual was abandoned in another life
experience, although that may be the case. It also could be that
the individual abandoned someone and now wants to atone for that
act, or that the soul just agrees to experience this wounding for
the sake of helping the healing for all souls who experience it.
this healing be completed in one life time?
definitely, but not all will do so. Before healing can take
place, there must first be a recognition of the wounding, and
then the desire to heal must follow. When there is a desire to
heal, the means of doing so are given as they are able to be
received and acted upon.
long does healing take?
takes as long as it takes. The better question is to ask how does
a person know if they are healed? The answer to this question is
that when one is healed of the sacred wound the pattern that
perpetuates the behavior that springs from the wound no longer
rules the person's emotional behavior.
happens if we ignore our sacred wound?
who ignore, or are unaware of, the sacred wound live more from
the human self rather than from the deeper spirit self. This is
not to say they never touch the deeper spirit self, but that most
of their emotional responses are from the human self.
How does the sacred wound affect our relationships?
A. Attraction for the other may come from the
sacred wound. If this is the case and the wound is neither
recognized nor healed, the relationship may be quite rocky and
harmful rather than one of harmony and accord. It also is
possible to have a normal relationship throughout a lifetime and
be unaware of the sacred wound. There are many individual factors
at work here.
The relationship between what we will call soul mates is a
longing for a uniting with Spirit. These are the relationships
that may work only on the deeper levels for the healing of the
sacred wound in one or both individuals. These are often the
relationships that stories and poems are written about. They are
relationships that may not work for the coming together in the
every day life.
There are also relationship that work on the human level, but do
not have the depth of the spiritual soul connection. If the
couple stays together they may or may not have the need to heal
the sacred wound.
There are those couples who have both the deep spiritual
connection and lives that work together in the human world. These
are the sacred relationships where soul mates have come together
to help heal the world at a greater level than they can do alone.
Q. What happens if two
people come together who have the same sacred wound?
A. This depends on the
growth of both people involved. These can be the most rewarding,
but also the most difficult relationships. If healing has taken
place, these are lasting relationships that can make the biggest
leaps in healing the wounds of the world.
there anything else I need to ask at this time on this subject?
information is complete for a starting point at this time.
Thank you Phillip.

Ways You Can Be of
Service To Yourself and Others
Love will heal every wound, so . . .
what if we woke every morning and said, 'I love you'? And what if
we kept saying I love you to ourselves and to those around us and
to the world all day long? What if
these were the last words we said before we fell asleep at night?
And what if we really, really meant these words?
What if we meant I love you, not I own you, or I want you to do
what I want, or I want to control you, or I want to put demands
on you, but I love you and because I love you I value and respect
you and I want to act in a way that shows I value and respect
you? What if we were able to hear each other say I love you and
not be afraid, but instead embrace and be grateful for that
I love you, Diana
When Soul Mates Meet, Fall in
Love, and Crash
Your eyes meet across the room. Everything else fades away.
All you can see is the other person, and you know you want to
meet, have to meet. It is as though it is preordained, as though
the gods are working their magic through the two of you.
You meet. You talk. . . . and talk and talk. Words between you
come easily. Laughter comes even easier. And then you kiss and
the world explodes. Nothing will ever be the same again. You feel
like a teenager again. Life shimmers. You can't get enough of
each other. You are falling in love.
That euphoria, that love you feel for the other, makes everything
in your life seem better. Everything is brighter, sweeter, even
those few pounds you wanted to lose seem to melt away. This is as
good as it gets, and you want it to last forever. The other one
feels this same way, or so you thought.
And then what seems like all of a sudden something happens, and
before you know what's what, you crash and burn. Your mundane
lives, your human selves, with all your fears and insecurities
and issues, push in and pull you out of the euphoria of new love.
Your heart closes faster than it opened only a short while ago.
You feel lost and alone and scared and hurt and you don't know
which way to turn.
This is where love - real love - begins. Not every couple is
going to make it through, or past, this barrier, because this is
where we get to deal with our own issues, stripping away our
insecurities, soothing our fears, and becoming more of who we
truly are. This is where we stop trying to make the other into
who we want them to be, but instead learn who we are in this
relationship. In doing so, we also must learn about kindness,
compassion, understanding, and communicating.
This is where we embody love for ourselves as well as loving the
other. This is where we learn if that deep soul connection
translates into our workable relationship in our everyday life.
It doesn't always.
When it does, we must learn to nurture the third soul of love we
are creating between us, as well as continuing to embody love
ourselves for ourselves and for the other. We must continue to
look at ourselves, getting to know our needs so we can with
kindness and love communicate them to the other and hear the needs
of the other. We must never blame the other for any
disappointment of our own expectations, while also keeping within
the healthy boundaries we have established for ourselves
individually and as a couple. We must always continue to
communicate, asking, answering, and most importantly laughing.
And if we succeed, we will come together in a lasting love that
heals not only our lives individually and as a couple, but the
lives of everyone who feels our love. That's worth working for.
