"This is a new age - in my belief and understanding. A fundamental change took place in planetary conditions in the late 1980s that allowed greater, and clearer, access to Spiritual Truth to individual human beings. Since then the so called "New Age Movement" - which really started in the late 19th Century and accelerated during the 1960s - has exploded into public consciousness because so many people are accessing higher Truth."
"New Age and alternative healers, Spiritual Teachers, self help gurus, etc., who have not done their emotional healing and enlarged their subconscious intellectual paradigm enough to consciously stop empowering polarity and shame emotionally as well as intellectually, are set up to be trapped in their codependency just as traditional mental health practitioners are limited by the emotionally dishonest beliefs of dysfunctional civilization."
"Reiki, energy healing, crystals, body work, breath work, dance/movement, art therapy, meditation, yoga, etc., are all wonderful tools that can be very helpful in the healing process - but unless we consciously own our feelings, our grief and rage and terror from childhood, we are not owning our self and our experiences in this lifetime."On this page is the twelfth chapter of an online book by codependency therapist/Spiritual teacher.
"Love is a verb. Loving is a dynamic process that involves taking conscious action in alignment with Love. That is why I say that the only one who can turn on your heart light is you. We need to consciously change that subconscious programming and embrace the emotionally wounded parts of us in order to start finding some freedom from our codependency. External sources cannot magically heal our relationship with self. We need to own our power as a co-creator in our lives in order to heal our internal relationship with self so that we can connect more clearly with Spiritual Self / True Self."

Chapter 12: Codependency in New Age Movement
An Age of Healing and Joy
We have now entered a very special time in human history. An Age of Healing and Joy has dawned in human consciousness on this planet. We now have tools, knowledge, and most importantly, clearer access to healing energy and Spiritual guidance than has ever before been available in recorded human history on this planet.
The dance is changing. A Transformational Healing Process has begun on planet Earth. We have begun the process of breaking out of the vicious, self-perpetuating cycles of destructive behavior that humans have been trapped in for thousands of years. The destructive dance is changing into a dance of healing.
This is a new age - in my belief and understanding. A fundamental change took place in planetary conditions in the late 1980s that allowed greater, and clearer, access to Spiritual Truth to individual human beings. Since then the so called "New Age Movement" - which really started in the late 19th Century and accelerated during the 1960s - has exploded into public consciousness because so many people are accessing higher Truth.
In my book Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls, I use principles of Quantum Physics and Molecular Biology to try to communicate some understanding of the planetary conditions that have dictated human evolution and caused the Human Condition as we inherited it - and to try to explain how those planetary condition have changed, why this is a new age. I mention that the knowledge and tools to help humans return to alignment with the Truth of Love and ONENESS have been manifesting into human consciousness in a process that has evolved over time, and at accelerated over the last 50 to 100 years. This accelerating process brought the energy field of Collective Human Emotional Consciousness to a point of critical mass in the late 80s so that this shift could occur in perfect alignment with Divine Plan. . . . .
. . . . . . There are many mystical messengers among us today. They include people like: Richard Bach and Bob Dylan; John Bradshaw and Melody Beattie; Oprah Winfrey and Marianne Williamson; Neale Donald Walsch and James Redfield; etc. This does not mean that these people are totally clear channels for Truth - or that on a personal level they are in recovery. One of the most important paradigm enlarging books of the 1970 and 80s was written by a person who was, and is (last I heard), a practicing alcoholic.
The thing that all of us old souls have in common, that all mystical messengers have in common, is that we grew up in dysfunctional families in dysfunctional cultures. We are all codependent. Unfortunately, from my perspective, many of the mystical messengers present now have not done their emotional healing to the depth that allows them to change their core subconscious programing - and because of this they are still allowing codependency to twist and distort the messages of Truth they are carrying.
