This is your
typing to you from her own private planet in a far away
galaxy. I'm enclosing a Magic
Wand. Of course, it's
so it probably fell out when you opened the envelope.
Pick it up
with your imagination.....
This wand uses the new pro-awareness and
anti-misery technology. It's called the
[combo model # u- kan- 2]
I'm including instructions for using it to help you
shape-shift yourself when you feel unsafe. (You can figure out its other
uses on your own, but be careful. This wand is very powerful.)
Like all real
magic, the SPIFF-E 13 only works from the inside out.
No batteries are needed because this particular deluxe model is powered by two

Keep it tucked between your lungs and underneath your heart until you notice...

returning from an undercover assignment with valuable information
files of your only real enemy.

The aliens figured out that human egos thrive on lies--the bigger the
better. Our egos think that the truth ought to fit our fantasies, so we
don't get much practice accepting
truth for What it
Is. These ETs booby-trap all personalities
with microscopic timed-release germs that cause us to believe that
happiness (or unhappiness) is caused by someone or
some situation outside ourselves. We're tricked into going on our "...pursuit
of Happiness..." in all the wrong directions.
Alien espionage agents have never had any difficulty installing their
destructive software in our gullible egos. Each brainwashing program
always contains a built-in cannibal virus that eats the true identity of its
host. All humans are infected. Left untreated, we become robots
(clones) in the service of aliens whose purpose is to conquer and colonize the
whole planet. (See the sci-fi classic
The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.)
Can this corrupt conditioning be uninstalled???
Fortunately, you have at your command an army of

SPIFF-E 13 is capable of decoding the silent secret messages that your
emotions smuggle in to help you reclaim your true identity. These
messages contain clues that only you can decipher with the help of your

to neutralize negative vibes.

Clear away all other thoughts and pay total attention
to your breathing. Take from three to five s..l...o....w..... very
deep breaths (maybe more, depending on
the intensity of the feelings).
With your mind, AIM the wand at each place in your body that is being affected by
emotion. For example, there may be
butterflies in your stomach, a tightness in your chest, a lump in your
throat, weak knees, sweaty palms, and so forth. If your heart starts
beating really fast, or if you have trouble
breathing, point the wand toward the center of your chest.
LET GO of everything!
Pretend to melt like a popsicle in the sun. Do not
think anything. You will
have an experience, but you can't create it and words can't describe
it. You can only allow it. Your body
and your mind must be very s t i l l to get an accurate
translation of the incoming coded messages.

heart's ears. (Bench your ego. Better yet, send it to the showers.)
These steps take lots of practice, but the prize is worth the effort.

Bodies come only one to a customer so take care of yours. Make regular oil
changes. Use healthy fuel. Rotate your tires. Wash, wax, and
polish. Keep your body dependable. Make it last. Appreciate
and respect it. It's your Rolls Royce. ( Aston Martin,
if you prefer.) Don't get in the back seat of your own life and let your ego or
anyone else chauffeur you around. That's a wreck waiting to happen.

Similar to most electronic games, the alien software embedded in your ego includes challenges at
increasing levels of difficulty. The unique version of
BEING that is you is hiding in a

The best way to discover your
Self and win the game is to learn to create your own stories and
write your own scripts. Some Beings choose short skits or one act
plays with few scene changes. Some perform in longer plays with many acts
and intermissions. Some like dramas. Some prefer sit-coms.
Some choose musicals or variety shows. Some create elaborate adventures
with cliffhanging suspense.
Of course, you can spend your whole Lifetime
bored by reruns with interchangeable plots and predictable dialogues written by
aliens on the program they hacked into your ego when you left

packed your suitcase for this trip.
You have everything you need to get the souvenir
memories you want.
You're at the beginning of your trip through Life. My adventure is winding
down. You're about to enter the "turbulent teens." I'm in my "second
childhood." However, the suggestions I'm sending will work for anyone who
puts them to use whether he or she is five years old or over fifty.
The wand will not stop pain, which is a growth hormone; but it can neutralize
suffering, which is an attitude. You may want to believe you have no
choice but to play the victim role when physical, mental, or emotional pain crashes your
party. Instead, you can refuse to let Self-Pity spoil the fun. This planet is heavy with whiners. One more mental clone could tip the
scales. Don't let it be you. The Blame Game is fixed. Nobody wins.
Don't waste the wand trying to "...make something of yourself." Its magic
will help you discover all that you already are. Your life is
your Mystery. Only you can figure you out.
It's my hope that you will begin to free yourself from destructive patterns of
thinking that you never consciously chose. For your own sake and for the
sake of the world, open your mind. Think.
