I'm standing with Michael Moore for Bernie Sanders because he is the only candidate who is running for all of us, he's authentic and real and he is beholden to no corporate interests but most importantly I trust Bernie and his message ~ which is something I cannot say about any other Presidential candidate: Allen L Roland, PhD

Want to experience the Real Bernie Sanders ~ watch this brief informal street interview when Bernie Sanders spoke with RT’s Ed Schultz, on the eve of the Iowa election; about how he became a serious contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, after being 40 points behind in the polls ~ and also about how his “terribly radical” ideas reflect the will of the American people. A true revolution is brewing and it gained momentum in Iowa.

But also watch the unguarded moment just before the end of the interview when they were interrupted by another interviewer and Bernie gruffly said "how rude, can't you see we're talking" ~ and that unguarded moment caught the real and not politically correct Bernie and explains his growing appeal to the politically disenfranchised electorate ~ he doesn't suffer fools lightly.


Michael Moore, another truth teller, wrote an excellent article on why he is endorsing Bernie sanders and included this wonderful graph which summarizes the differences between Sanders and the establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton. See article ~ but remember, true to form, Hillary changed her mind about supporting TTP when she recently read the populist handwriting on the wall.
" I first endorsed Bernie Sanders for public office in 1990 when he, as mayor of Burlington, VT, asked me to come up there and hold a rally for him in his run to become Vermont’s congressman. I guess not many were willing to go stump for an avowed democratic socialist at the time. Probably someone is his hippie-filled campaign office said, “I’ll bet Michael Moore will do it!”

They were right. I trucked up into the middle of nowhere and did my best to explain why we needed Bernie Sanders in the U.S. Congress. He won, I’ve been a supporter of his ever since, and he’s never given me reason to not continue that support. I honestly thought I’d never see the day come where I would write to you and get to say these words: “Please vote for Senator Bernie Sanders to be our next President of the United States of America.”

I wouldn’t ask this of you if I didn’t think we really, truly needed him. And we do. More than we probably know."     Sincerely Yours,  Michael Moore

Bernie has just fired a volley across the bow of the Clinton establishment Battleship in Iowa which is committed to maintaining the Status Quo but that's just the opening round ~ there's more to come ~ Bernie's just getting warmed up particularly when you can truly see the real implications of trickle-down economics.


Click on picture to enlarge

The indignation of the bottom 90% has steadily mounted, as it's income has disappeared, as seen in this graph ~ especially since Wall Street threw the US and world economy into the abyss in 2008 and then used the crisis to further enrich itself at the expense of the working population or bottom 90%.

The bitter betrayal by the Obama administration, which came to power by promising progressive “change” and instead has maintained the status quo as well as overseen a further and unprecedented transfer of wealth from the bottom to the top, along with an expansion of militarism and war ~ has only intensified the anger and combativeness of working people and youth ~ who are all part of the growing Bernie revolution which will soon hit New Hampshire.

New Hampshire will not be decided by coin flips as in Iowa ~ but could be decided by illegal electronic vote flips. The bottom line here is that some 80% of the votes in the 2016 primaries will be cast or counted on electronic voting machines owned by private corporations. Courts have ruled the source code proprietary, and thus inaccessible to the public.

What this warning means is that much of the nation has no legally binding mechanism by which results can be publicly verified ~ If the Sanders campaign fails to aggressively push for exit polls and a verifiable vote count, this current thrilling attempt to restore American democracy, as well as the power of the people, might prove futile ~ for the establishment has no moral rules.

"The way the Clinton campaign has been red-baiting Sanders is unfortunate ~ and tone deaf. According to NBC, 43% of Iowa Dems identify themselves more closely with socialism (sharing, helping) than with capitalism (greed, inequality). Most polls now show young adults (18-35) across America prefer socialism (fairness) to capitalism (selfishness). So, what is democratic socialism? It's having a true democracy where everyone has a seat at the table, where everyone has a voice, not just the rich.": Michael Moore

The basic underlying and uniting force of the universe is a psychic energy field of love and soul consciousness ( the Unified Field ) which lies not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears ~ and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite. Tap into this energy and heal yourself in the process: Allen L Roland, PhD

A heart centered cause versus symptom rehabilitation approach, fueled by gratitude and forgiveness, for active duty veterans suffering from PTSD has been implemented at the Concord Vets Center, California with great success. Under the direction of Salvador Ueda, MSW, and their team leader ~ a total of 18 Band of Brother's transformation support groups have been accomplished with well over 100 veteran graduates in the last five years and with this success ~ a personal dream and goal has come true. My dream was to help transform the VA rehabilitation system for veterans with PTSD from within through these heart centered Band of brother's sessions.


Since the driving force of my self-healing heart centered consultations is gratitude, it is with heart felt gratitude that I thank the Concord Vet Center and in particular adjustment counselor Salvador Ueda for suggesting and giving me the opportunity, first as a licensed counselor and then, upon retirement, as a fully vetted VA volunteer consultant, to share my truth and help facilitate and build a successful Healing the Wounded Heart transformation program over the past five years ~ but particularly in 2015.

It’s been an incredible personal joy to witness with Sal the heartwarming transformations that occurred as many of these emotionally wounded veterans burst into full flower by going through their fears and finding joy beneath their deep pain and despair. We literally saw the internal light come on as they began to see through different eyes

 "We're changing the VA system from the inside out,”  I would joyfully share with Sal after each veteran transformation, "the beat goes on."

This outside the box program is simple and effective but it all starts with the adjustment counselor who initially screens each applicant and determines if they are ready for this inner transformation self-healing work. He then has each veteran complete a life chart, as described in my book, which graphically summarizes their life in terms of being a quest versus a struggle. At the same time they begin to read my book as well as watch my You Tube sessions. I feel a great affinity with veterans, particularly active duty veterans, for we have all been in service and many of us have risked our lives while serving our country.

They all have access to these self-healing steps in my updated Kindle Book RADICAL THERAPY, SURRENDER TO LOVE AND HEAL YOURSELF IN SEVEN  SESSIONS (not seven years). Here is the Kindle link

And here's a link to the YouTube Skype sessions of the self-healing process I teach and coach ~ Watch, in the first 20 minutes of session five, how Marina conquers her deepest fear by going through it and she demonstrates that beneath her pain and fear is boundless joy. See video

My book is a passionate call to heal your heart by surrendering to love. Initially by sharing gratitude with the many people in your life who have not been thanked for being a gift ~ and then all others as you open your heart and begin to not only see through different eyes but also slowly reconnect with your original joy, intention and purpose.

It is important to note here that all of my work over the past 45 years, both in my private practice and now as a heart centered coach and consultant, has been inspired by my desire to personally demonstrate my Unified Field  by being in service from a place of celebration and service ~ which happens to be the last two steps of ego transcendence ~ as well as indelibly prove that deepest within us, even below our deepest pain is a psychic energy field of love, joy and soul consciousness (The Unified Field) ~ which exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears, and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.

Note ~ If you google The Unified field ~ you will find my explanation on page two of 7.5 million results.

Here are a few personal examples of taping into the Unified field ~ which I share with all participants as well as in the eBook.


My whole life has been a journey, a quest, to find a lost little boy within myself who once knew, and longed to share the truths that I am now sharing with you; a 4 year old boy who profoundly experienced at the deepest level within himself, a love and joy that indelibly connected him to everything around him. That experience was my first awareness of a Unified Field of love which I was an integral part of ~ and I fully surrendered to the bliss of being in the Unified Field of love and soul consciousness and never forgot it.



Just as becoming a Navy Fighter pilot was an important part of my destiny and brought me to the San Francisco Bay area ~ the precognitive vision of the Golden Gate Bridge was a door that was opened to me as a young child and not only let the future in but proved to me that the love for my grandfather not only existed beyond time and space but was also the sole constant of the universe.



I have had many personal experiences of the sensory sensation of being in the Unified Field of love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears but this one stands out ~ for it was a matter of life and death and it became the foundation of my belief in this state of consciousness that lies beneath our deepest fears.  See



My after death experience with my Mother when she passed on in 1987 was proof positive that she was now in the Unified Field ~ a state of soul consciousness that exists beyond time and space.



Let me share my initial meeting with Stan Krippner 44 years ago in 1972 which has set the stage for where I am now but is a wonderful personal example of how our lives are divinely interconnected and guided from within if we will but listen, say YES to ourselves and not be controlled by fear. 


I have obviously answered an important query I posed long ago when I started my practice ~ Why are most people afraid of their deepest Joy ?

In my over 45 years as a heart centered consultant with emotionally devastated civilians as well as veterans with PTSD, I have discovered that most have a common symptom ~ the psychic pain of being seemingly separated from love, either at birth or in childhood, which can cause us to emotionally check out and close our hearts thus PTHD (Post Traumatic Heart Disorder).
At some dark point of aloneness, psychic pain overrides joy and ego defense becomes more important for survival than love and relationships. Medication and drugs then become the principal tool to be utilized in survival and our rapidly increasing middle-age death rate confirms this finding ~ as well as the obvious need for a proven and effective alternative heart centered approach for PTSD or PTHD:

The answer to my query is because their psychic pain, quite often experienced at birth or early childhood, has over ridden their original joyful memories and they are afraid of or mistrust their deepest joy and are living their life and still making life decisions based on ego based fear.

In the third tenet of my PhD dissertation, The Unified Field, I describe the process by which psychic pain (the seeming separation from love) can over-ride joy and how most people are afraid of or mistrust their deepest joy ~ It would appear that the pain of not feeling loved for oneself and being seemingly separated from our original state of soul consciousness and the Unified Field is of such deep psychic proportions that, early in childhood, processes are triggered in the hypothalamus which result in a left brain imbalance and dominance as well as the denial, mistrust and forgetting of our connection to the Unified Field and the love and joy and a state of soul consciousness deepest within us. It is from this dark tunnel of pain, aloneness, despair and apparent death that the ego and ego consciousness is born - for survival and protection purposes only.

Thus death, or the idea of death, appears to be an illusion measured by the limits of our consciousness. This would seem to explain why people who have had a near-death experience quite often no longer fear death but also have new values regarding love and the need to be in service

Think of the ego as a protective cocoon that is eventually meant to be shed. The Unified Field can be visualized as a grid of great luminosity joining all living beings within its energy field of love. The words of Longfellow would seem appropriate in describing this all-encompassing field or grid: "The thread of all sustaining beauty that runs through all and doth all unite." 

In my role as a heart centered consultant with over 45 years' experience of soul retrieval especially with veterans with PTSD, I retrieve buried souls and empower them through love and gratefulness to not only open their hearts but to also find their unique place in a universal loving plan from a place of celebration and service. They soon begin to realize that everything they have ever wanted is on the other side of fear.

In other words, I meet them from a place of celebration and service and empower them to open their hearts and fully claim the joy and authenticity of themselves.

Here are the eight stages of ego transcendence I demonstrate and teach. Remember that the ego is a projection of what we feel we have to be versus being our true authentic self ~ and it is always born out of deep pain and aloneness.

1. Denial    Everything is fine, there is nothing missing in my life ~ I'm in full control of everything

 2. Anger    I can't stay in control and manipulate things any more ~ it's not working, it's making me angry.   

3. Bargaining   I'll hang on to something so I won't get out of control and have to deal with the unknown and all those scary feelings deep inside me that I have been continually avoiding.

 4. Depression  Why am I feeling so sad, and it feels so deep. If only I could get out of this pit of despair.

 5. Acceptance / Connection   I'm feeling deep sadness and it's the same feelings I felt as a child ~ I can't deny these feelings any longer.

 6. Surrender  I'm letting go and trusting that there is joy beneath my sadness ~ what is this excitement I'm feeling beneath this well of grief and it has nothing to do with someone else.

 7. Celebration  I'm truly feeling the joy of being myself and the growing awareness that there is something I'm supposed to be doing ~ I'm beginning to trust the unknown and see through different eyes.

 8.  Service  I'm fully trusting myself, I'm listening and I'm responding to this inner call ~ I want to be in service from this inner place of authentic love, joy and delight.


Make no mistake about it, the keys to the magic kingdom of the soul are gratefulness and forgiveness ~ and eventually gratefulness and forgiveness ends with our self.

And what group of people have been more separated from love and the life force than combat veterans (many of whom had significant birth and childhood trauma) and have additionally been taught to hate and kill.

Initially, I am called in to review their completed Life chart and help Sal connect the soul dots ~ a life chart which clearly shows their whole life, relationships and war experience as a Quest or journey to fully understand where they are now.


From our very first session, they begin the process of thanking the people who have been there for them in their lives and as they do ~ like flowers, their buried or numbed out hearts begin to open allowing them to see through different eyes.

I then assist Sal in the remaining group sessions, with the veterans, using the seven sessions in my book as the guide ~ including the experiential guided visualizations.

For example, the last session is a death exercise where every member has the chance to seemingly die and I then have each member tell them how much they meant to them as well as share from their heart with each other. In other words, in that exercise they not only experience being loved but the thrill of speaking from their hearts.

It's not therapy but it is action based self-healing and every participant is given the opportunity to explore another heart centered choice of behavior versus a fear based ego driven choice. The Team leader was very impressed by this self-healing process but could not find the time to make it happen for himself but his support was evident to all participants.

In 2015, I have concentrated on empowering and mentoring Sal Ueda, at his suggestion, to not only see through his heart but connect the dots so that he could carry the program on without my assistance. This work, in essence, is all about soul retrieval for these veterans, who were once taught to kill, are now being reconnected to their deeper urge to love and cooperate with each other

Dr Stanley Krippner describes this process in the foreword of my book ~ "No psychiatric manual lists "soul loss" as a condition in need of treatment but shamans tell me that "soul loss" is widespread in contemporary society. Allen Roland has had the insight to understand what the shamans have told me. He also has developed the skills to help his clients regain their souls"

Nowhere is "soul loss" more apparent than with veterans with PTSD who have been taught to kill or witnessed or participated in unjustified mass human carnage.



Just as Stephen Hawking has suggested that black holes may, in essence, become white holes at a point of singularity ~ so I am suggesting that at the end of that black well of despair within ourselves, we also reach a point of singularity . A point where all notions of time and space break down and we become one with a Unified Field of love and a state of soul consciousness.

Band of Brothers #18 was my last hurrah as a volunteer consultant with the Vet Center but I left with an immense sense of self-satisfaction regarding this unique heart centered approach to self-healing. This program has not only succeeded ~ with well over 100 active duty veteran graduates who have positively changed through gratefulness and self-forgiveness ~ but more importantly, their hearts have been opened and they have experienced another choice of behavior while their PTSD symptoms have greatly diminished. See VT Post ~

It remains to be seen if the VA will integrate this self-healing approach into their clinical approach but it is obvious that no amount of psychiatric drugs can ease the painful psychic pain carried by many of our returning veterans with PTSD ~ as witnessed by our rising veteran suicide rate.

Gen. Peter Chiarelli, the Army’s No. 2 officer, who has long been an advocate for soldiers suffering from the invisible wounds of war (such as PTSD and TBI) ~ also advocates the need for other alternative approaches ~ I want to understand what drugs we should use to treat these symptoms, if we should use any drugs at all. I want to look into alternative pain management. We are finding there are other ways to handle pain that are more effective and allow a person to feel a lot better than throwing a bagful of drugs at them.”  See

As a former active duty Naval aviator and carrier pilot who served seven years in the Navy, the last two as a weekend warrior ~ I can honestly relate to veterans and consider it an honor to have touched many of their hearts in my work as a heart centered consultant.

They have all, including myself, faced their deepest fears and been in service to their country. Many have been to the dark side and long for another choice and I am proud to have facilitated that process in my ongoing heart centered consultations.

There is no true healing without love and gratitude is the life blood of soul consciousness.

"Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about."   Rumi

Senator Bernie Sanders and UK Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn

As the inevitability of real change increases, resistance and backlash also increases as I have most certainly experienced in my heart centered work within the VA Medical establishment ~ but there comes a time when a tipping point is reached and the inevitable becomes a growing reality as we are now witnessing with the rise of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn to positions of real leadership in a troubled world community: Allen L Roland, PhD

“Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.”
~ Albert Einstein

 In October of 2015, I wrote that there is a reason that Bernie Sanders has surged ahead in the Presidential Primary Polls and that Britain’s Jeremy Corbyn has done the same thing in the UK ~ it’s people power and it won’t and can't be stopped. The refreshing honesty and agenda of Bernie Sanders is a lifeboat in a sea of political deception and lost hope and soon he will be joined by the UK’s Jeremy Corbyn as a worldwide counter balance to corporate power and the global elite as well as a genuine reflection of a new world order based on people power ~ and now it's moving closer to a reality. See VT post ~

But we must first realize that all true change is resisted for the stumbling blocks on the path of the weak often become stepping stones on the path of the strong ~ as I well know in introducing real change to the VA through my heart centered work with Combat Veterans with PTSD.

But this backlash phenomenon also exists on a much larger political stage as we are witnessing in the 2016 Presidential primaries and well as in the UK with the emergence of Labor leader Jeremy Corbin.

To better understand this phenomenon ~ let's separate this resistance into stages ~ because in many ways it is similar to Schopenhauer's three stages of truth ("All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.") ~ except in this case, there are seven stages.

Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept, brilliantly summarizes these stages in his recent article ~ The Seven Stages of Establishment Backlash:


 " For those who observed the unfolding of the British reaction to Corbin's victory, it’s been fascinating to watch the D.C./Democratic establishment’s reaction to Sanders’ emergence replicate that, reading from the same script. I personally think Clinton’s nomination is extremely likely, but evidence of a growing Sanders movement is unmistakable. Because of the broader trends driving it, this is clearly unsettling to establishment Democrats ~ as it should be….. A poll last week found that Sanders has a large lead with millennial voters, including young women; as Rolling Stone put it: “Young female voters support Bernie Sanders by an expansive margin.”

The New York Times yesterday trumpeted that, in New Hampshire, Sanders “has jumped out to a 27 percentage point lead,” which is “stunning by New Hampshire standards.” The Wall Street Journal yesterday, in an editorial titled “Taking Sanders Seriously,” declared it is “no longer impossible to imagine the 74-year-old socialist as the Democratic nominee."

Greenwald goes on to confirm that there is a direct correlation between the strength of Sanders and the violent violent opposition and backlash it has triggered within the Democratic establishment and major media ~  " There were, roughly speaking, seven stages to this establishment revolt in the U.K. against Corbyn, and the U.S. reaction to Sanders is closely following the same script:

STAGE 1: Polite condescension toward what is perceived to be harmless (we think it’s really wonderful that your views are being aired).

STAGE 2: Light, casual mockery as the self-belief among supporters grows (no, dears, a left-wing extremist will not win, but it’s nice to see you excited).

STAGE 3: Self-pity and angry etiquette lectures directed at supporters upon realization that they are not performing their duty of meek surrender, flavoured with heavy doses of concern trolling (nobody but nobody is as rude and gauche online to journalists as these crusaders, and it’s unfortunately hurting their candidate’s cause!).

STAGE 5: Brazen invocation of right-wing attacks to marginalize and demonize, as polls prove the candidate is a credible threat (he’s weak on terrorism, will surrender to ISIS, has crazy associations, and is a clone of Mao and Stalin).

STAGE 6: Issuance of grave and hysterical warnings about the pending apocalypse if the establishment candidate is rejected, as the possibility of losing becomes imminent (you are destined for decades, perhaps even generations, of powerlessness if you disobey our decrees about who to select).

STAGE 7: Full-scale and unrestrained meltdown, panic, lashing-out, threats, recriminations, self-important foot-stomping, overt union with the Right, complete fury (I can no longer in good conscience support this party of misfits, terrorist-lovers, communists, and heathens). "
So what stage are we entering now on the verge of the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries and Greenwald delivers his ominous verdict ~

"Britain is well into Stage 7, and may even invent a whole new level (anonymous British military officials expressly threatened a “mutiny if Corbyn were democratically elected as prime minister). The Democratic media and political establishment has been in the heart of Stage 5 for weeks and is now entering Stage 6. The arrival of Stage 7 is guaranteed if Sanders wins Iowa."
See Greenwald RSN report ~

Political Change, like climate change, is upon us and there is no painless path to transformation ~ for it involves letting go of the past and embracing the future ~ which both individually and politically is not an easy task. In that sense, both Sanders and Corbyn are needed catalysts for change.

“The power of a bold idea uttered publicly in defiance of dominant opinion cannot be easily measured. Those special people who speak out in such a way as to shake up not only the self-assurance of their enemies, but the complacency of their friends, are precious catalysts for change.” ~ Howard Zinn, You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train: A Personal History of Our Times
