"One story of your origins is about how
your ancestors in the Garden of Eden lost their innocence when
they tasted the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
The story, however, didn't mention that earlier I had done the
same thing myself.
"The snake was correct, I had this 'knowledge,'
but the story didn't say how knowing both good and evil was plaguing
me and making a mess of Creation. Judgments I made based on these
values have spawned most of the unwanted fragmentation in Creation.
"As I've mentioned, I
am evolving. When I began to be aware of stimuli, both from
inside myself and from what seemed to be outside of me, I generally
had one of two feelings about it. I either felt that it was something
I liked to experience or something I didn't like. The things
I liked, I accepted and the things I didn't, I rejected. This
whole process seemed right to me and I didn't question it for
a very long time. Even when I became aware that I was fragmenting
myself by doing this, I didn't know how to quit.
"I was judging everything and it seemed
only natural that I should. After all, who else could do it?
Heaven became a courtroom where I not only judged myself and
the Mother, but later on I was even asked to settle little differences
among the spirits. Even though I realized this wasn't going anywhere,
I felt locked into the role of judge.
"It seemed the best I could do was to
be consistent based on my previous judgments. It wasn't until
I questioned the whole purpose of judging that I realized I was
going about it in the wrong way.
"To judge is to decide, and to decide
is to cut off other possibilities. The things I decided to accept
became part of me. The things I decided to cut off, however,
were also parts of me that I now had projected
outside of myself. When these parts were rejected as unacceptable,
they didn't cease to exist as it first seemed, they went into
"In my denial of them they remained self-aware,
but cut off from the rest of me. Lucifer
and other great difficulties resulted when I judged against,
and therefore denied parts of my essence.
"The ability to decide is fundamental
to choice and free will, a crucial feature of this universe.
I am free to create as I will and this includes the freedom to
make mistakes. Because you are becoming Who You Truly Are, you
are likewise free to create, and therefore free to make mistakes.
"In the mistaken belief that perfection
is what is 'right,' it seems that mistakes are 'wrong.' But since
you and I and everything else in Creation are evolving, mistakes
are not only necessary, but desirable.
"Learning is evolving and mistakes are
excellent feedback in the learning process, if they are used
as such. The solution to the problem of judgments is not in trying
to eliminate the ability to judge, it is in using the faculty
"Your culture has taught you that making
mistakes is bad, but it's not true. Mistakes are the norm in
trial and error learning, and necessary for evolution. Learning
is already hard enough without being punished by guilt for making
the mistakes that are a necessary part of the process.
"The punishment and obvious result of
negative judgments is guilt. Guilt erodes the sense of self worth
and makes it very difficult to feel feelings that have been infected
with it. Depression is often the consequence of guilt-bound feelings
that cannot move and are therefore denied.
"Since you are fundamentally innocent,
guilt is not in its right place in you. Guilt is held in place
by judgments. Release the judgments, and the guilt goes too.
"You can very quickly and dramatically
change your life for the better when you release the judgments
that have held you captive and left you cut off from love and
from your true emotional strength and power. This is much easier
to do than it's seemed.
"Because judgments are mental decisions,
they are easy to change. The secret is simply to decide again.
Take back your original judgment, change your mind, undecide,
How to Release Judgments
"Here is an easy way to do this. Whenever
something bothers you, find the emotion or feeling that is associated
with the problem. Next, locate the feeling in your body, and
feeling into the feeling ask yourself, 'Do I have any judgments
about this?' If the answer is, 'Yes,' then say out loud or strongly
in your mind's voice:
"'I release the judgment that I am bad
because I ____' (Insert whatever you did, thought or felt.)
"So, now you have changed your mind,
you no longer judge yourself as bad for doing or not doing something.
The next step is to change your mind about the thing itself.
The words that do this are:
"'I release the judgment that ____ is
bad or wrong.' (Insert the same as above.)
"If the judgment is a negative quality
such as 'I am lazy,' 'stupid,' 'unworthy,' etc. finish up with
the following release statement:
"'I release the judgment that I am in
"If you are feeling self-hatred related
to the judgment, begin with this statement:
"'I release the judgment that I must
hate myself because I ____' (And continue with the two
other statements above.)
"Here is a list of the statements in
order of use. In all cases it's good to use the second and third.
Begin with the first if there is any feeling of self-hatred,
and the fourth if the judgment is a negative quality such as
lazy, stupid, unworthy, etc.
1. 'I release the judgment that I must hate
myself because I ____'
2. 'I release the judgment that I am bad because
3. 'I release the judgment that ____ is bad
4. 'I release the judgment that I am in fact
"Whatever it was that caused you to judge
against yourself, it's not wrong, it's a choice. You have free
will and every choice you make is valid, and particularly valid
when it's used as a learning experience.
"Release each negative judgment until
there are no more. That's all there is to it, when the judgments
are released you are free again to decide about how you will
feel and act in this and similar situations. And most importantly,
your magnetic essence will be free to move as she wills.
"Guilt and blame are a continuum. When
it is in you, it is guilt. When it is in someone else, it is
blame. Guilt that you feel impossible to own yourself becomes
blame when it is projected out onto another.
"Releasing judgments (blame) against
others is just as liberating as releasing them against yourself.
Just say, 'I release the judgment that (person's name) is bad
because they . . .' and 'I release the judgment that . . . is
bad or wrong.' Either way, guilt or blame, it's yours to release.
"Does it seem too easy? You may find
yourself very pleasantly surprised at the deep and permanent
positive changes that occur when judgments are released. At first
it may seem like nothing has happened, no thunderbolts or deep
feelings need accompany the quiet release of judgments. And yet
sometimes it may come as a deep sense of immediate relief and
the movement of long-held emotions.
"Judgment making is a mental activity,
and so is judgment releasing. Although these mental constructs
have had a very powerful influence over emotions, they are as
easy to release as forming the intention and thinking the thought.
"The effects of judgment release are
often subtle at first, but always cumulative. The more often
you stop a moment to release judgments when something bothers
you, the easier it goes next time. Also, after just a little
practice, the releases will happen very quickly. Once you've
done this practice a few times, just realizing that you've had
the judgment is often all that is necessary for it to release.
"The Last Judgment is a real event that
will happen eventually for each evolving being. When I began
to realize that my true nature is Love,
I began to lose the desire for power. My judgments about things
were key to my feeling power over them. I felt I needed the power
because I feared what would happen if I didn't have it. Releasing
my judgments enabled me to move that fear in loving acceptance.
"My last judgment was to decide that
I no longer wish to deny anyone or anything by judging against
it. This means I accept it now as it is and find a place for
it in my Light if it wants one, regardless of how I've felt about
"I judge everyone and everything as good.
With me, it's all okay. I don't call it wrong when there's a
mistake, I know it's learning. I don't think it's treason when
my suggestions are ignored or a back is turned to me, I know
it's free will evolving."
