Robert Burney, a "Counselor for Wounded Souls,"
is a non-clinical, non-traditional therapist - a healer, teacher, and spiritual
guide whose private practice is based upon Twelve Step Recovery Principles
and emotional energy release/grief process therapy. His work is focused
on the belief that we are Spiritual Beings having a human experience and
that the key to healing is awakening to consciousness of our Spiritual
On this "Spiritual Path" page you will find short
summaries and links to some of the pages of the web site Joy2MeU that deal
specifically with Spirituality.
The work of Robert Burney is about Spiritual integration
to achieve emotional balance and all of the pages have spiritual focus
- these are just some of the more overtly spiritual/Metaphysical of these
The belief system which the work of Robert Burney is based upon
starts with the belief that the Truth of who we really are is:
Spiritual Beings having a human experience!
"I had to start trying to find a concept of a Higher
Power who could Love me even though I was an imperfect human. If my Creator
is judging me then who am I not to judge myself? On the other hand if the
Goddess Loves me unconditionally then who am I not to Love myself? And
if the God/Goddess/Great Spirit/Universal Force Truly Loves me then everything
has to be happening for reasons that are ultimately Loving."
The Kinder, Gentler Way to relate to self.
"Everything is unfolding perfectly from a Cosmic
Perspective! There are no accidents, no coincidences, no mistakes! You
are perfectly where you are supposed to be on your Path. You always have
been and always will be!
The God-Force is powerful enough to get us to where
we are supposed to be with or without our help! We do not have the power
to screw up the Great Spirits plan."
"We are now, not just healing our wounds from this
lifetime, we are doing Karmic settlement - on a massive scale, at a very
The Principles & tools of the program
Powerlessness & Empowerment
"The Twelve Step Recovery process is so successful
because it provides a formula for integrating different levels. It is by
recognizing that we are powerless to control our life experiences out of
ego-self that we can access the power out of True Self, Spiritual Self.
By surrendering the illusion of ego control we can reconnect with our Higher
"My Spiritual Self is the part of me that knows that I am a Spiritual Being
who is related to everyone and everything - that we are all ONE. Through
my Spiritual Self I have access to all the power in the Universe."

energy fields of consciousness
"The conditions on the planet
have changed! That is the Joyous news that I have to share with you. The
dance is changing. Since before the dawn of recorded history, the dance
of life for humans has been primarily one of survival, of endurance, of
We have now entered a very special time in human
history. An Age of Healing and Joy has dawned in human consciousness on
this planet. We now have tools, knowledge, and most importantly, clearer
access to healing energy and Spiritual guidance than has ever before been
available in recorded human history on this planet."
Jesus & Christ Consciousness
"This Master Teacher was known as Jesus the Christ.
The man Jesus was a perfect child of the Goddess and God energy - just
as we all are perfect children of the God-Force!
This messenger added the most powerful ingredient
to the process. He brought us our secret weapon. He taught Love. He carried
the message of a Loving God."
"The term "old-soul" refers to the stage of consciousness evolution an
individual has attained by this lifetime - it does not mean better than,
or farther along than, those who do not have to do the healing. There is
no hierarchy in the Truth of a Loving Great Spirit."
All old souls are now doing accelerated Karmic settlement in this
Our mission to integrate Spirituality into our interactions.
It is easy to feel Spiritual in relationship with nature.
It is relating to other humans that is messy.
"The conditions on the planet have changed! As long
as the planet's energy field of Collective Human Emotional Consciousness
was reversed, the process of growing towards the Light attracted the dark.
That is not going to happen this time. The planet's
energy field of consciousness is now positively aligned with Truth. Growing
towards the Light now attracts more Light."

"The good news is that a New Age has dawned in human consciousness and
that we now have tools, knowledge, and access to healing energy and Spiritual
guidance that has never before been available. We are discovering the rules
of the game that we have been playing for thousands of years by rules that
"We are part of/an extension of an ALL-Powerful, Unconditionally Loving
God-Force/Goddess Energy/Great Spirit, and we are here on Earth going to
boarding school not condemned to prison. The sooner that we can start awakening
to that Truth, the sooner we can start treating ourselves in more nurturing,
"The more we understand that it is a game, that this is just boarding school,
the easier it becomes to nurture ourselves by not shaming and judging ourselves.
We are going to get to go home.
We don't have to earn it - that's what Unconditional Love means."
"Life is not some kind of test, that if we fail,
we will be punished. We are not human creatures who are being punished
by an avenging god. We are not trapped in some kind of tragic place out
of which we have to earn our way by doing the "right" things.
We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience.
We are here to learn.
We are here to go through this process that is life.
We are here to feel these feelings."
