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

    Hi Terri, This is the first time I have tuned into the blog. I enjoyed it. There have been many times during my life that a tune has come to mind during a life situation. “I fought the law and the law won” has been a repeated favorite. DK really is funny. He gives me a chuckle at the most dire times. I know that on my death bed he will come up with something funny. Love and Light, Kathy Boaz

    OMG!!!! Terri, I am relatively new to your services, but was guided to sign up for the long distance Tuesday thing Dec 22nd., seemed to be a good idea because my boyfriend found out the next day that his cancer had showed up in the brain as well (as all the other places it is in.) I pretty much sailed through the next week as we got new to this new diagnosis, and the one a week later that it is back in his lower leg too. I thanked the broadcast for my being so strong. After about 3 weeks of trips to radiation with him EVERYDAY ( now I have to take him everywehere) and not enough time to take care of me, I was going nuts….and I started to hear the same song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing and thanks to DK for guiding me in this direction, even taking the time to read your blog!
    Thanksf= for the confirmation!

    Hi Terry,

    Wow. What a vulnerable, brave posting.
    Telling the truth helps healers in business
    everywhere! I had the SAME thing happen
    several years ago. I paid the IRS around $20,000
    and went from solo practitioner to S Corp.

    Now, once a week, I send my receipts to a bookkeeper who balances all my accounts, issues checks, pays all the bills etc. When tax time comes, she just prints a report for the accountant.

    I’ve learned to let people do the work they love so I can do the work I love.

    Love to you, Wise Woman!
