SEEING Psychological Innocence

The Key to Loving Oneself and Others and Facilitating Others to Do the Same

Most of us live with a level of unconscious judgment that inhibits LOVE. This judgment innocently mutes our relationship intimacy. It dampens the fullness of joy in our daily lives. This judgment impacts our physical well being often manifesting as impaired sleep, low grade anxiety, irritability, chronic headaches, neck and back pain and makes us prone to multiple illnesses. It stifles our creativity and productivity. It dilutes our capacity to bring love and understanding to the world.

This course on SEEING Psychological Innocence is devised to bring freedom from judgment that will release a new level of healthy energy in all aspects of your life.

We have the power to give ‘presidential pardons’ to ourselves and others. When we learn to do so quickly, we are the ones released and free.

We can then help others to do the same. We can only point to and give away what ourselves SEE and possess.

Essential To:

  • Complete Forgiveness of Self and Others
  • Loving Oneself Faithfully, Fully Fiercely and Freely
  • Loving Others Faithfully, Fully, Fiercely and Freely
  • Healing Our Image of the Nature of What We Call God (From Judgement and Punishment to Pure Love and Understanding)
  • Healing Fully from Adverse Events (Either in Childhood or as an Adult)
  • Optimal Mental Well Being
  • Optimal Physical Well Being

And That

  • Guilt and Continued Self Judgement from past miscues /hurtful behavior(that we all make) makes us MORE likely NOT LESS likely to repeat the behavior or similar ones. Guilt does so by creating a perception/lens through which we view ourselves that lowers our level of consciousness and our feeling level such that we listen less to the spiritual wisdom within our consciousness and more to our judgmental thoughts.

SEEING Psychological Innocence:

Does Not:

  • condone behavior that is hurtful to others.
  • See thoughts or behavior that is hurtful to one’s self or state of being as healthy psychologically or physically
  • Envision punishment as helpful in returning people to an internal state of wellbeing. 
  • Envision punishment as a reliable deterrent to behavior in speech or action that is disrespectful or harmful to others.

Does:

  • Posit that everyone ‘s action in each moment of their life is seen as ‘making sense’ as the thing to do in that moment and at their level of understanding of the source of their experience.
  • Does believe that there are internal negative consequences both psychologically and physiologically to behavior (thoughts, speech, actions) that are unkind or physically hurtful to others.
  • Does recognize that there are consequences that need to be recognized and enforced (as possible) maintain safety.
  • That forgiving the person does not mean that we will not use common sense to minimize the chance of recurrence of the same behavior.
