AWAKENING HEALTH

teach them something . I don ’ t believe in divine accidents . I think coincidence is God ’ s way of remaining anonymous . I believe in divine interaction .
I think if we could just see that every person is God . Every person is a light and every light is worth seeing or illuminating . And , they might have had different experiences , or lifetimes , or their childhood in this life , they might have different belief systems . That ’ s fine , but you could all try to see that God light , that love . You see , to me God is love , love is God , same thing really . So if you could see that within each person , try to see that . Not the projections that they give out . Not the illusions that they may live with , but that within them is that source energy that pulls it all together - the light of their soul .
Miriam : It sounds like the universe is really trying to get us to be happy and successful and joyful , and all we have to do is listen . How do we overcome our fear ?
James : We have to listen , exactly . When I was developing my sensitivity as a medium , we had to sit in the quiet . The quiet for me was a darkened room . I closed my eyes and I would meditate . I would just sit in the quiet . It ’ s so interesting when you start doing that . I did that for seven years every Tuesday night for two hours . When you start listening , you ’ re sitting in quiet , it forces you to listen within , to go within , hear your heart , hear your soul , and the quiet is very loud . It becomes very loud .
It ’ s when you can go in and have that awareness of yourself and then you see yourself in the world around you and how you are either perceived in the world around you , how you will act in the world around you . You have a truer sense of yourself and you realize that you are made of this loving energy and that so many people in the world don ’ t have the relationship with self , don ’ t listen to self . Self is love , love is our pure being , our pure self .
Miriam : You had a line in the book , one of many , that really spoke to me . You said , “ The only thing we take when we leave this earth is the love we gave and the love we received .” What do you hope that readers will take from your book ?
James : Well , it ’ s very interesting because in 35 years of working I ’ ve written I think 12 or 13 books
– and whenever I hold the book it feels like it ’ s a gemstone . It ’ s something very , very special . It ’ s so interesting , because I open the pages and I read one sentence and I feel an upbeat , a sense of vibration , a quickening , a sense of joy . I hope people get out of the book that relationship with themselves that they might have forgotten . That it ’ s very , very simple . It ’ s not as complex being a human as they might think . A lot of people get caught up in the complexity of the simplicity , which is that we are simple loving souls and we have a choice . It ’ s either love or fear . So , I hope this book reminds them of their origin , reminds them of who they are .
Miriam : You know it sounds so simple . Why do we make it so complicated ?
James : It is , it ’ s very true . We , humans like to make things so ... I don ’ t know if that ’ s to validate our existence in this world , but I find that as I go within , it ’ s much more exciting . It ’ s much more exciting . I tell you when you have the relationship with yourself and you go within , and as you know being a healer , as you go within you have that sense , that vibration . And it ’ s not that you ’ re better than anybody else or that you ’ re more special , it ’ s just that sense of self . There ’ s so much excitement and dynamic and interest and so much going on within and then you feel that you want somebody else to experience that same thing , experience that joy , experience that sense of creativity , that excitement , that spark , that fun , because life is too short .

Every person is a light and every light is worth seeing or illuminating . And , they might have had different experiences , or lifetimes , or their childhood in this life , they might have different belief systems .
