Don't regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.


“We accept many notions because they seem to be the logical answers to our questions. But have we asked the right questions?”

- Harold L. Klawans

"The uncreative mind can spot wrong answers, but it takes a very creative mind to spot wrong questions."

- Anthony Jay

 Happiness and suffering come from your own mind, not from outside. Your own mind is the cause of happiness; your own mind is the cause of suffering. To obtain happiness and pacify suffering, you have to work within your own mind.

-Lama Zopa Rinpoche, "The Door To Satisfaction"

“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.”

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the February issue of Higher Vibrations. A few people are still having trouble with the article links. I am not sure what is causing this since it does not affect everyone. However, you can always find all my articles on the website. Just go to the home page www.spiralrelease.com and click on the article link at the top of the page. The most recent articles will be listed first and previous archived articles are listed by year.

This month’s article The Gift of Age explores growing older and the idea of asking the right questions in life. I share some examples and how to begin using this idea in your life.

Please help me by forwarding this e-newsletter to the people you feel will benefit from this information.

As always, I appreciate your support, friendship and presence in the world. May the miracles of everyday life fill your heart with joy, your mind with peace and may love abound in your life in these miraculous and amazing times.

Love and Blessings,

Tim Custis

The Gift of Age


By the time you read this, I will be on vacation and celebrating my 52nd birthday. I can honestly say that I love growing older. I know that may sound crazy to some of you except maybe those of you who know my story. And for those of you who don’t here’s the short version: married at 18 and divorced by 20 with a child. I started to have back problems at 16, which evolved into severe pain 24 hours a day and lasted for many years. At some point during those many years, my doctor told me that I would live in pain the rest of my life and that nothing could be done to help me. I drank like an alcoholic from the first drink and I drank and drugged for over 14 years. Oh yes, and then there was my emotional state. You can imagine, with all the pain and alcohol, what kind of shape I was in. I believe the correct technical term is in the dumpster.

So you see, getting older for me has been  continue

About the Global Healing Circle

Our mission is to create a safe and healing environment for those who wish to connect with others while exploring their own path in life. We do not practice religion but draw from our own life experiences so we may come together as equals to foster the growth of who we are as human and spiritual beings. We seek to learn about ourselves for the betterment of our lives, relationships and for the healing of our planet. We do this with the understanding that changing the world first begins with changing ourselves.


The Global Healing Circle was created with my friend Suzy Baldwin we will encourage you to participate more in the process of creating your life by releasing blocks, setting new goals and reaching for new heights. We believe that your potential as an individual, and our potential as a global community, is unlimited. 

Those who choose to join our circle will be part of a process that is ever-changing and ever-evolving to meet the needs of the group. Individually, we will explore, honor, and learn from our differences. United, we will connect, inspire, and reach for something greater than that which we currently know.

Come try us out. Do as much or as little as you like. Share, only, if and when you’re ready. If it feels like home, stay awhile. If it does not, we thank you for your time and consideration, and send you blessings as you travel onward. Whoever, wherever you are, we honor you as part of the whole.

The meetings are free and everyone is welcome. So if you are ready, we invite you to join us. Dates and time listed below.
