What a Beginning in 2009

by Rev. Terri Newlon

I Am Writing This by Candle Light


Yes, I am writing this by candle light with as much as I can get done before the PC battery gives out. My entire neighborhood power is out for a few hours this evening. I’ve discovered I type much faster when I can see the keyboard, so we’ll see how this goes!


It’s just another Mercury Retrograde on Chinese New Year, the Year of the Ox, and I’m plowing ahead as always. I am blessed with unstoppable, unshakable Spiritual Purpose. Some people say I work too hard. I say I am highly motivated and we are all in high gear getting ready for the end of the Mayan Calendar and the beginning of the era beyond it. So much is happening that I wanted to give you an update.


2009 Started Off with a Set of Interesting Challenges


Many of you have known me for decades, or at least several years. You were used to the old Terri cranking out an hour long teaching every Wednesday, even on holidays and even when the Sedona wildfire was raging one mile from my home and evacuations were happening two houses over. You were also used to a once a month Saturday teaching that also went on for years. Some of you miss them, some of you are glad because you can now keep up with the teachings, and some of you haven’t commented either way. I would love to hear from you. Please comment right here on the blog, as that minimizes hours of labor for office assistance.


I want to let you know how I’ve changed, and why.


Last year finished with a hard core realization that my constantly serving others managed to get me in a bit of trouble with the IRS. I used to take 6 to 8 private sessions every weekday, crank out all those regular tele-courses, and run all the aspects of my business pretty much by myself. (The power just came back on for the second time this evening – let’s hope it stays.)


I thought I was doing a pretty good job. Then, I realized that I hadn’t watched my tax situation as closely as I could have – oops. My responsibility and I blew it. I bargained with IRS in what they call an Offer in Compromise which really translates to several months of time consuming gathering of tedious documentation, and paying lots of money for the special IRS representative that you really can’t live without. As they say, “I fought the law and the law won”… $32,000 to be exact. Ouch. Double, triple, super ouch.


The great news is the battle is over. During the process, my financial picture got much better. Oddly enough, I am working less. Don’t get me wrong, my work day today will be about 14 hours before I call it quits. I’m a natural work horse and I’m as happy as I can be Serving Humanity. I wouldn’t have it any other way.


Uncle Richard was diagnosed with that nasty Asbestos Cancer, the one they nickname “Meso” that the conventional doctors say there’s no hope. That was last year. He went to the Bahamas for some hope and just returned this month. He is doing very well. Yeah!


Grandma, my last living grandparent, made her transition in mid-January. It was peaceful and she was surrounded by family. I’ve been in close contact with mother and had a lot of bonding time by telephone. I was unable to travel to Iowa for services, due to business demands.


My accounting and 1099’s are done. I am almost ready for the tax preparer and have my appointment time set. We’ll be all done and filed for 2008 in the first week of February. It feels good!


I was advised and therefore upgraded my business from an LLC to an S corporation. There are still requirements to meet, forms to file, numerous places to correct the corporation and banking information, and well, you get the picture. All this happens on a time table that keeps IRS, the State of Arizona Corporation Commission, my beloved accountant and tax ladies, very happy. And we must keep them very happy.


I have vowed to never again allow fiscal irresponsibility. I can’t! This work needs to get to Humanity on a large scale. Plus, that was an exhausting and expensive lesson, well learned, thank you. I rejoice at being on the other side of it, with the exception of one last detail, which is negotiating a payment plan in this economy. DK says “don’t worry” and deliberately leaves off the “be happy”. I love his sense of humor. You’ll understand why this is so funny a little later in this article.


Conclusion and the Next Projects


So, for all those who miss the old ways, now you have an explanation. I miss them too, yet I am happy that I have time to tend to necessary aspects of life and business without neglecting anything.


We have new products to launch, as soon as I can get the writing done. Wow, I am typing much faster now that there is light. Funny how light works that way. ;o)


Stay tuned to the email list for our newsletters, and you’ll find out what’s happening as fast as we can unfold the happening.


When the timing is right, Djwhal Khul already has the next big project in the works. It’s called Green Living Center, a non-profit organization. We are going to build an eco-friendly center that will be used as a spiritual retreat for gatherings, and so much more. We’ll be filing our form 1023 for non-profit status also at the beginning of February. How exciting! As usual, I expect the waters to part at just the precise time. I’m so used to DK and his grand sense of timing. I can’t wait to hear which popular song lyrics he’ll use to alert me that it is time to move forward with GLC.


Does he sometimes plant a song in your head?


The one I remember the most, best of all, was when the wildfires were burning and I was getting ready to RV around the country for the first time. I also was packing up the entire house and putting everything in storage. I was SO maxed out and I had no sense of humor left. I told DK I didn’t think he was funny anymore. As soon as I said that…


I turned on the radio, and a caller was making a request. It’s an oldie, and it is hilarious. “They’re coming to take me away, ha ha, hee hee… to the funny farm, you see.” Needless to say, I burst out laughing and my sense of humor was back. Later, during the RV trip while I was driving in the pouring rain and water was flooding the kitchen, the Minnie Winnie took an exit all by her self and the one and only thing there was a mini-mart gas station called “The Funny Farm”. Ha ha! Hee hee!


Next time a tune just won’t leave, smile and thank him.


With Love,

Terri Newlon



Taxes, IRS and Spirituality

My background


I realized at age 22 that I was incarnate to serve Humanity, and specifically to be a voice channel for Ascended Master Djwhal Khul so that he could continue his teachings in the New Age, a term that “DK” coined through Alice A. Bailey which means the Aquarian Age.


At age 27 during my Saturn return birthday, I left a ladder-climbing middle management position with a nationwide land title company and became a full-time employee of a nonprofit organization called The Tibetan Foundation. I was officially out on a limb!


Later, I transitioned from being on a payroll to being a self-employed entrepreneur. It was a scary process with a huge learning curve. I now own a successful spiritually-based business that I lovingly refer to as woo-woo, not coo-coo.


I did not make time for business school. I just followed my heart as a dedicated being and found myself attracted to advice given in entrepreneurial circles, sold on the Internet and available in book stores. I literally grew my business from scratch and let it evolve based upon the natural law of supply and demand. Necessity was and still is my Mother of Invention.


There are so many World Servers who have their very huge hearts in all the right places. What we often don’t have are the business skills to manage a successful outreach of our work. I sure wish that spiritual business coaching had been available to me way back when. The concept of sales and marketing were a down right turn off to me as a Light Worker. But, I needed to pioneer a viable way of serving in this day and age, so I decided to reach beyond my comfort zone.


My Journey with the IRS


Issues with authority figures are common amongst Humanity and tax issues in particular go way back through several past incarnations. I feel my personal journey within the last few years has been one of clearing these authority and tax issues.


The combination of lack of proper advice, two illnesses that were life threatening and financially devastating, and being a relentlessly busy World Server, led to an interesting and enlightening journey with the Internal Revenue “Service”.


The IRS is called the Department of the Treasury, and is not part of the United States government. It is a branch of the Secret Service, which is also not part of our government. I say this as matter of fact common knowledge that anyone can look up. This is not a conspiracy theory, as I avoid those with a passion.


When I call the IRS for advice, the recording I hear while on hold says something to the effect that “We are not responsible for anything that might be said by an IRS representative”. Huh? Really?


The IRS works like the luck of the draw. I got a person with the last name of St. Germain and I thought “I am so lucky getting someone with the same name as the Ascended Master of the Seventh Ray Violet Transmuting Flame! How Khul!” All projections backfire sooner or later. It was later.


My Offer in Compromise to settle with them for an affordable portion of the debt was denied. It honestly should have been accepted as I was in dire straights at the time. After that exhausting experience, I decided to file an Appeal and begin another round of compliance with numerous requests for receipts, copies of tax returns, etc.


During the appeal process, fortunately, my business picked back up and I recovered my health. The Appeal was also denied and rightfully so this time, because of my economic upturn.


I do owe the debt. I have never disputed that and I will pay it back.


My Realizations and Resolutions


I know that I am here to Serve as many as possible in this crucial time period. It is time to get on with it, minus unnecessary distractions, therefore…


I have forgiven myself for neglecting paperwork and I now make time for it.

I have expanded my business and I now receive professional ongoing support.

I have forgiven the IRS and a certain representative.

I have accepted my inner authority and released my fears and projections.

I have committed to assisting other Light Workers in business.


No longer do I subscribe to the belief system that says “I could or should save money by doing this myself” if it means that it will cost me more in time or money.


I have realized that it is exponentially beneficial to pay for the wisdom of those who already possess business and tax knowledge and give sound guidance. I happily pay professional fees to those who are really good at what they do. This allows me to keep focused on what I love, my Service to Humanity.


Transformation has always been an inside job. ‘We the People’ have co-created and perpetuated our IRS reality. We will keep it until we no longer need the reflection it provides. I continue to work on my belief system, and I am so grateful that other Light Workers are doing the same. I trust we will co-create balance and peace.
