What Happens In What People Call “Dreams”

TLDR: While most people dismiss or forget dreams, they are actually more than just subconscious meanderings. They are creations of alternate realities we explore actively when asleep. Influenced by momentum and belief, practice can enhance dream recall. The recent experiences of the author validate Seth’s multidimensional theory of dreams intersecting with waking life, suggesting an intertwined relationship between various states of consciousness and reality.

When the body sleeps, we do not. What we’re doing when the body sleeps escapes most people. That’s because a lot of people disregard it. They ignore what people call “dreams”. So much so, some people don’t even think they dream!

But everyone dreams. Every THING dreams. That becomes evident when we explore what’s happening when the body sleeps.

We’re not “dreaming”. Instead, we’re creating realities. And we’re participating in those realities with intense focus.

A lot more happens when the body sleeps than just that though. What’s happening is ultra sophisticated. So many things happen while we’re “out there”, writing about them all would take too much space.

Instead, I want to focus on one aspect of what’s happening in that conscious, aware state people call dreaming. I want to focus on it because a recent experience gave a perfect example which confirmed what you’re about to read.

Let’s take a look at it.

Everyone dreams, but some forget they do

By the way, anyone can confirm for themselves all of what I’m sharing here. It takes a while though. That’s because momentum and belief affect our conscious awareness of what’s happening when the body sleeps just as much as they do when the body is awake. So momentum behind the belief “I don’t dream” makes it impossible to remember what’s happening. “I don’t remember my dreams” does the same thing.

With practice though, remembering what’s happening gets easier and easier.

It helps too to give up calling the experience “dreaming”. “Dreaming” is ladened with too much baggage. Baggage discouraging accurate recall of our participation in that state of consciousness.

Nearly all my advanced clients claim, initially, that they never dream. Or they claim they don’t remember their dreams. Then, with a little encouragement and the right suggestions, the world they explore while the body sleeps springs into their conscious awareness. It becomes more vivid. It becomes more thrilling. Sometimes terror-filled experiences greet them. But that’s because their dominant vibrational momentum is negative.

Once that clears away though, that vast, seemingly magical world becomes more and more clear. Then clients start waking from sleep in joy, wonder and fascination.

So if you don’t think you dream, or you can’t remember them, that’s easily fixed. If you don’t believe what you’re about to read, I suggest you prove it to yourself. How? By becoming more aware that you, too, are enjoying vivid experiences when your body lays in bed.

Dreams offer so much richness…if we know how to recall and retain them. (Photo by Bruce Christianson on Unsplash)

All dimensions dance within each other

Seth, a key component of my vibrational lineage, has said the world making up what people call dreams is multidimensional. Each of those dimensions, he says, overlaps and influences all the others. The same goes for waking reality. Waking reality is influenced by those dimensions too. And waking reality influences them. This vast interaction happens in real time. And every point of consciousness gets in on the act.

“Every point of consciousness” includes you and me. When we’re awake, we’re influencing all those other dimensions, in other words. When our bodies sleep, we participate more actively. Our consciousness directs us into that awareness almost completely, which explains why, when we’re “there”, we have no awareness of waking reality where our bodies lie in bed.

All this sounds theoretical. Like a hypothesis scientists make, then try to prove or disprove in science. But this is not theory, nor science. This is exactly what is happening when we sleep. A recent experience while asleep proved this to me through an extremely clear example.

Here’s what happened:

A multi-layered “dream” experience

I was participating in World War II. It was an alternate-reality version of World War II, not the earthly version. I knew this because the landscape and the people “felt” different than people feel in our collective waking reality. The machinery also looked slightly different than it does here.

In this plane, I was a mechanic working on a 20mm cannon of what looked like a German fighter plane. My job was to use a big piece of cloth to push through the bore of the canon in order to clean it free of carbon. I did that over and over, until the cloth came out clean.

Then I was a wounded soldier. Vultures were picking at my body, but I was ambulatory. I walked among other wounded humans, both civilian and military. We all mingled around what looked like a little pool of water or fountain. The rest of the town was in ruins having apparently been bombed to smithereens.

Then I was part of the resistance. I was working with two women who were also part of the resistance. We were sitting in a small home, thinking and talking about our strategies. Another woman came in, someone who knew what we were doing. She claimed to have caught us in the act of espionage or treason. I don’t remember what side we were supposedly acting treasonous towards. She took one woman away. The other woman remained with me and we talked about what we were going to do next. We didn’t fear for our lives or for the woman who got taken away.

Then I suddenly found myself in a totally different reality. There, I walked through the lobby of a luxurious condominium tower. It was very similar in atmosphere to a Ritz Carlton. I walked through this elevator/escalator thing. Then went through the entryway and entered my unit. It was very futuristic inside. It had dark wooden walls and recessed push buttons to control certain features of the unit.

When I walked in, my “partner” was sitting on a built-in couch in front of a large entertainment screen. Her back was turned to me and I saw her black, straight hair in silhouette against the screen’s glare. I turned right, and walked into the “dining area”. There, sat two beautifully dressed people — a man, and a woman. That’s when I noticed I was impeccably dressed also. I wore an extremely well-tailored suit and a white, open-collared shirt.

The man got up from the dining table and introduced himself. I introduced myself also. We knew each other already because I recognized him from the World War II dreams. The woman remained seated and was eating what looked like some sort of sandwich made of hamburger buns. She didn’t eat the buns themselves, but instead ate whatever was in the middle of them. She looked at me, said hi, and offered the buns to me. At first I declined, but then decided I wanted to eat them.

At that moment, the three of us reminisced together about both World War II experiences. We all had played a role in the unfolding of those experiences. The feeling of our reminiscence was “mission accomplished” or that the purpose of the experience was fulfilled. It was then that I recognized that that was an alternate dimension that we all had put ourselves in and THIS dimension that we were now in was yet another dimension that we were participating in!

A trippy experience for sure

What’s interesting here is, in that second “dream”, I was highly surprised. I was surprised both because I knew I was “dreaming” and, I also knew that the dream I currently was in, was connected somehow to the dream I had dreamed just before. It also surprised me that the three of us had traveled or somehow had been in that other dream and now we were here. Here, apparently, in my futuristic luxury apartment!

Just as Seth described, I was participating in multiple experiences in this nonphysical reality, all happening at the same time, along with others who were participating too! That “Mission Accomplished” feeling confirmed what Seth says about “influence”: apparently, whatever we were doing in that other dream “worked”.

I felt this ah-ha experience while still “dreaming”! Then, when I woke, back in my apartment here in physical reality, I continued feeling this sense of astonishment. Life proved to me exactly what Seth described!

My experiences while my body sleeps continue offering so many awe-inspiring moments. The more vivid those moments get and the better retention I have of them, the more rich my life gets. That enrichment, of course, spills over into this waking reality too.

We come into this reality and, not long after, kind of sink into a numbness about it. The experience loses its luster. We think “is this all there is?” But this life can be as ongoingly rich and awe-inspiring as the dream state. Underneath our numb feelings lies that Charmed Life I write about. Where everything we want to know can be known. And everything we want to experience can be. All that’s required is altering our ability to perceive. That happens best though being Positively Focused.

The False Truth The Bible Makes Christians Believe

Photo by Aaron Burden on Unsplash

TLDR: The story looks at how the film “1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted Culture” reveals that a mistranslation in the Bible to include “homosexual” has deeply affected LGBTQ perception within Christianity. This error, from a 1946 translation team, has fueled generations of discrimination, despite evidence challenging its legitimacy. This story also looks at the intersection of faith, belief, and the potentially transformative power of reexamined truths.

Some Christians will dispute this, but the Bible itself seems clear on the issue: God hates gays. At least that’s what Christian evangelicals will tell us. As does the Bible. I mean, it’s clearly stated many, many times throughout the “good book”.

But does god really hate gays? Or is something else afoot, like human error?

I’ve always seen the Bible as something other than the word of god. It can’t be the word of god because god didn’t write the Bible. No matter how a theologian will try explaining it, god did not pen the Bible. Man did.

This post is about a new documentary I watched. It’s called 1946The Mistranslation That Shifted Culture. The film takes on one of the biggest bombshells Christianity dropped on humanity and the massive destruction that bomb created.

Well, not really “Christianity”. It was “some Christians” who dropped it. The problem is, what they dropped shaped the world we see today. One where a lot of Christians don’t act very Christian. One where a lotta Christians persecute LGBTQ people, believing they’re doing “god’s work”.

Let’s dive in.

The original intent was pure

The film is great. It offers extremely compelling evidence supporting its contention. Its contention is the white, presumably straight, men who translated the most popular versions of the Bible got it wrong when translating two critical terms. While translating the Bible from Greek to English, they conflated those two terms to mean “homosexual”. Then, publishers used that conflation to fill the entire Bible with the word “homosexual”, thus creating the weaponized version many evangelical lay persons and their leaders use to condemn LGBTQ people today.

The difference that conflation created sent human civilization on a totally different trajectory than if that translation error never happened.

Not only does the film offer proof, it offers proof that’s extremely compelling. Turns out 20 white men in 1946 were translating the Bible from Greek. I believe all these men were theologians. It’s clear from factual examination of these men’s own notes that their intentions were pure. After the conflation happened, however, another man saw the group’s translation. This other man happened to also be a theologian.

But something else about this guy made him the perfect person to get involved: he also was gay. And he also was a pastor.

This person wrote a letter to the group. He urged them to reconsider the conflation. What’s amazing, given today’s Christian perspective on gays, is the group’s leader was super interested in this guy’s opinion. The two exchanged extremely cordial letters about the conflation. In the end, the group leader agreed with the gay pastor: the translation was wrong.

A question that can change the world. From the film’s website.

Sacrosanct words meet politics

However, our process-driven society amplified the problem. Some years would pass before revised translations could get published. In those years, publishers published two other versions of the Bible. Those versions contained the mistranslation.

Then Billy Graham and Jerry Falwell popularized those translations. Right about this time, Ronald Reagan became president. Politics and Christian values birthed the Religious Right. And that was all she wrote.

Needing a foil to keep Christians agitated and engaged, the Politicized Religious Right focused on gays as “the enemy”. Right around this time AIDS happened. AIDS was the perfect example of homosexual depravity. The Religious Right claimed AIDS was divine retribution for homosexual sin. Momentum took over from there.

This explains why, today, the Bible contains the word “homosexual”. Accurately translating those two words would put the Bible in a completely different standing on gay people. Proof the documentary offers attesting to this is undeniable. Unless you believe the Bible is the word of god.

And yet, many Christians will not consider this proof. Even though it comes directly from the men who did the translations. Again, many Christians believe the book is the word of god. It is therefore infallible. They don’t consider these words the words of man, translations prone to error.

The power of belief and momentum

The film maker’s family shows how powerful belief in the book as the word of god can be. The film maker is lesbian. Her father is an evangelical pastor. He swears the Bible is the word of god. As such, he believes what the Bible says about homosexuals. Even when presented with proof documentarians found, he’s unwilling to budge. It’s the word of god, he says. End of story.

Not only does this pastor’s example show how powerful Christian belief is, even when it’s based on distortion, it also shows how powerful beliefs in general are. Beliefs and momentum literally create our realities. So many Christians believe like this pastor does. Other pastors believe this too. And they pass that belief on to their flock, using oratory fire and brimstone, thereby creating even more fervent believers.

And so generations have believed this false truth as truth. Generations of congregations and generations of Christian leaders too.

Even some gay Christians find themselves believing. They can’t reconcile who they know themselves to be with what their religion tells them. Indeed a central figure in the film is another theologian. Like the pastor who challenges the conflation, this central figure is gay. At one point, inner conflicts drove him to nearly kill himself. In the film he says his life is significantly diminished compared to what it could be had the Bible not been translated the way it was. He claims the Bible destroyed his ability to form intimate bonds with people.

Our beliefs matter. They literally shape reality. Some literally shape society and culture. They are not trifling matters. Decades have passed with many tragedies happening because of this one translation error. A translation error picked up and weaponized by fanatical politicians as well as religious fanatics.

There’s hope

And yet, this documentary can potentially alter our future. I’m holding space for it to reach those who can do something about this egregious sin perpetrated by so many who have come before us. So many claiming to be Christian.

I also hold space for people to watch the film. Some of it is hard to watch. Especially interactions between the film maker and her father. I know after his transition, he’s going to be shocked when he discovers how wrong he was.

And yet, I must offer both the father and the film maker kudos. Despite this enormous difference between them, they maintain a relationship. One seemingly based on love and….tolerance of one another….if not outright acceptance. That’s not something I could do.

I prefer a life where life is peaceful and joyful. People with gross distortions, such as the film maker’s father, don’t appear in my life.

I like it that way.

Whether you’re Christian or gay or otherwise, watch this film. It’s powerful.

How Small, Happy Manifestations Lead to Big, Better Ones

TLDR: The post discusses “castles and buttons,” terms for big and small manifestations, suggesting that acknowledging small ones (buttons) prepares us for larger ones (castles). The author shares a personal experience with medication as a “button” manifestation, reinforcing their ability to create desired reality and anticipate more significant successes.

Sometimes my creations are delightful. Sometimes they’re surprising. And sometimes they come in ways that just confirm that I’m a creator.

Most of my creations are “buttons”. “Castles and buttons” is a categorization of manifestation Abraham coined long ago. “Castles” are “big manifestations”; things people really desire. “Buttons” on the other hand, are smaller manifestations, things that happen, usually without people noticing them.

The manifestation I’m writing about in this post is a button. But that doesn’t make it any less special. Indeed, it’s quite noteworthy. That’s because noticing it having happened primes my sensitivity to real-izing other, significant manifestations. In other words, when I regularly recognize buttons happening, I’m preparing my reality to allow in my castles.

Let’s take a look at what happened. But first, let’s talk just a bit more about castles and buttons.

Mastering creation

Abraham’s statement rings true: “It’s as easy to create a castle as it is a button.” The trouble for most people is, “castles” come ladened with a lot of resistance. In other words, people want them so bad, their focus on wanting them, focuses them on “not having” them. So castles SEEM to take a long time to manifest. They also seem harder to manifest.

They seem to be harder because people must weed through their resistant focus and thoughts. We can’t create around existing beliefs. Both Seth and Abraham affirm this. And if people don’t know what they’re doing as a creator, existing beliefs often represent what most delays castles from manifesting.

Buttons, on the other hand, aren’t so ladened. They happen easier because we tend not to think about them much. Just like real life buttons – on our shirts and blouses and other things – buttons are more numerous too. There are more buttons on the planet than castles, in other words. That makes sense, right?

That buttons are so numerous makes them powerful manifestational tools. Armed with the knowledge expressed in what you’re reading, a person can use buttons to make manifesting castles feel easier.

We can practice on them. We can become better creators using them. And, since there are so many, we have a lot of opportunity to practice. In that practice, while we learn our skills, that practice also has the effect of soothing resistance. Resistance holding our castles at bay. It also firms up our belief in this whole “you create your reality” business.

So there are a lot of good reason to appreciate “little things” we manifest. They may be little, but they offer impressive opportunities to master creation.

Abraham has said this over and over…

An opportunity shows in medicine

The button I’m writing about today involves care I get from the Veteran’s Administration (VA). I take a pill each day. It contains a drug that turns off some of the acid pumps in my stomach. Apparently my stomach produces too much. So I get acid moving into my esophagus, which scars that part of my body. That makes it hard to swallow sometimes.

Since taking this medicine, however, I don’t experience that trouble. Now it’s not escaping me that perhaps I could use my practice to alter that physical condition. I am doing so. But I recognize physical symptoms like these, once they become physical, have a lot of momentum behind them. So soothing them into non-existence takes some effort.

Yes, we could call “curing” medical conditions “castles”. I won’t go into this deeply, but there is a LOT of momentum behind manifested medical conditions. The entire medical world is in on their creation. So is science. So is our education. As is our collective agreement that such things exist and are scary. Being able to sooth a medical condition back into non-existence, therefore, is quite a feat. Not impossible, but it does take focus.

I’m practicing doing that. In the meantime, I’m using this mediation for relief.

Late last year my prescription was getting low. I got a refill in the mail, but the pills looked different than the ones I originally had. They were larger as this photo shows:

The smaller, old pill on the right. The new one, on the left.

Button manifestation!

I wrote my doctor to ensure it was the same dose. He assured me it was. He said the new pill was within tolerances stipulated by government bid.

So I gave it no other thought. I mixed my old, smaller pills with the new ones. But the moment I took one of the newer, larger pills, I realized something else was up. They had an acrid taste. The capsule material wasn’t the same as the previous pills. At first I thought about writing my doctor again and complaining. Then I had another idea: this was a “button” opportunity. One where I could practice manifesting something other than these bad-tasting pills.

By the end of the year I noted that my prescription had expired. In the ensuing two months or so, I took the new pills. I did my best to ignore their acrid taste. Instead, I focused on how much I appreciated the smaller, normal tasting pills more. Since I take the medicine every day, I had a daily opportunity to practice. So that’s what I did.

In January, I was getting low on pills. So I wrote my doctor and asked if he would write me a new prescription, which he did. I didn’t give any thought at all about whether the new pills would be the larger, new ones, or the smaller old ones.

Two weeks or so later, the new pills arrived. And…you guessed it: the bottle contained the smaller pills!

A nice little addendum

What’s interesting about all this is when I got the new pills and noticed they were the ones I wanted, I immediately poured the old ones into the garbage. But then I realized this was a manifestation I could write a story about, so I went back to dig the pills out of the garbage.

Well, my Broader Perspective must have known I’d decide to write a blog, because the garbage was arranged in the pail in such a way that when I poured the pills into the pail they all fell into this plastic lid I threw in there days ago! So I didn’t need to fish them out one-by-one! I could get them all out just by pulling out that lid. How cool is that?

The pills right where I poured them.

The Universe is always on it. It is always delivering experiences that delight us. Experiences large and small. And experiences on top of experiences. Just like this. I’m positive the same thing happens to you all day, every day. It’s always happening for everyone. The question is: do we notice?

I’m glad I do. Because through noticing them, I amplify my ability to see them more often, which turns my life into the Charmed Life I write about here.

Getting better at getting better

This was a wonderful example of creating my reality. A reality representing a new dimension where I’m aligned with pills I wanted rather than those I didn’t want. And it was so easy!

We are literally surrounded by alternate dimensions. An infinite number of dimensions are constantly created by us from within the Moment of Becoming. Which one becomes our actual reality depends solely on our vibration. And our vibration is what we are. So we can adjust our vibration (who we’re being) and in that moment, align with a new dimension.

That’s how we create reality. It’s not like these dimensions don’t already exist. They do. We just align ourselves with ones reflecting back to us the state we emanate.

I like knowing that. I also like knowing the “castles and buttons” concept. I’ve gotten really good at manifesting buttons. I write about these all the time in this blog. I write about my castles too. Which is why my life is increasingly improving, including my financial abundance and work-life balance. I’m also feeling better and better as days go by. What a wonderful life!

As a result, I look forward to my other castles coming into my experience as well. They really are foregone conclusions. The fact that I see all this manifestation happening in my life tells me that. So I rest in a steady knowing they are happening, instead of a hoping, wishing or even believing they are happening.

I love knowing they are happening. It’s a state I’m helping my clients realize in their lives as well. You can get there too. You don’t need my help. But if you’d like it, I’m around.

What Happens When We Trust Spiritual Advice

Photo by Harpreet Singh on Unsplash

TLDR: Trusting in a “Broader Perspective,” the author describes heightened outcomes from aligning with a broader view of life’s trajectory, seen through personal and client experiences, where decisions informed by this perspective lead to positive transformations in emotions and situations.

There’s nothing better than receiving gifts. Especially gifts from the Universe as it collaborates with our Broader Perspective. I get these all the time. I especially enjoy trusting my Broader Perspective to coordinate my day. Its advice is always spot-on.

Every morning these days, when I just wake up my Broader Perspective immediately gets in on the act. Usually, right after my morning meditation my Broader Perspective advises me. It suggests an agenda for the next few hours.

It knows better than I do what will thrill me. What will delight me best is always at the top of its agenda. It knows better than I do because it has a broader view of my life trajectory.

In other words, it can see my future choices. And it can guide me to make choices best aligned with my fulfilled desires. Following my Broader Perspective agenda always has me feeling passionate about my days. So I trust that advice. And as I follow that advice every day, and doing so delivers wonderful outcomes, how can my life not be filled with wonderful outcomes? And what’s better than a life like that?

But what’s also cool is seeing my clients getting similar experiences. I’ve written this many times in past stories: Their experiences confirm my own. That confirmation boosts my confidence that my Broader Perspective is real.

I don’t need that boost these days. I KNOW it’s real. Still, it’s nice seeing my clients getting in on the act. That’s what I want so share today: two instances of that happening. Two instances where two advanced clients chose the path laid out by their Broader Perspective and what happened next when they did that.

Let’s get into it.

Deciding not to tell his sob story

The first happened with a client I’ll call Kevin. He has struggled a bit with the practice. That’s because he has a LOT of negative momentum in his life needing soothing. Lately though, Kevin has come around, which is allowing him to enjoy remarkable experiences. Including the one I’m about to share.

Kevin enjoyed a long-term affair with a woman I’ll call Madge. Recently, however, because of his practice, Kevin disengaged with Madge. He found being with her triggered too many negative emotions. And he knows emotions are very important.

But Madge keeps reaching out to him from time to time. She misses him. That’s not really what’s happening at a vibrational level though. At that level, Madge’s vibration wants continued energetic focus from Kevin, which he’s no longer giving. In other words, Madge looked to flings with Kevin to give her energy. When she got it she felt worthy, loved. With that gone, she can’t bear it. So she reaches out hoping to rekindle their affair.

The most recent moment came last week. She said she felt sad. Now, it just so happened that in the same week Kevin also experienced something that had him feel the same way: He lost a job he really liked. With assistance from me, he didn’t wallow in all that though. Not too much, anyway. So when Madge reached out, Kevin had a couple options.

“I initially wanted to say to her ‘I can relate,’ and then tell my own sob story”, Kevin began. “But then I knew that was not a good idea. So instead I just remained silent.”

Sometimes its best to remain silent. (Photo by Kristina Flour on Unsplash)

Following his Broader Perspective agenda

After their call, Kevin went into another call. This one with a tech entrepreneur. It was a call he was expectant about. That call excited him. And, in his excited state, he received an impulse from his Broader Perspective. It was an agenda. The agenda was: here’s what to say to Madge.

Kevin knew at that moment exactly what to say to her. Ultimately, what Kevin wanted from Madge was to experience her as happy and light. Not sad and heavy. He didn’t like the version of her that was buzz-killing his vibration. He wasn’t going to stand for that, which is why he remained silent in the first call.

But buoyed by his Broader Perspective guidance, he reached back out to her.

“I shared with her all the wonderful things she’s done as a mother and wife,” He said. “By the time I finished, her mood improved a lot.”

So what happened here? Kevin followed his Broader Perspective agenda. Doing so, he saw each choice available to him comprised a fork in his trajectory. He could go the direction of amplifying his own delight. Or he could go in the direction of aligning with where Madge was. Choosing the former, he looped back around and rendezvoused with a version of Madge who matched who he was being, instead of who Madge started out as. As a result, he got exactly what he wanted: seeing Madge as happy and light.

It’s wonderful perceiving then following Broader Perspective guidance. Kevin’s experience was awesome. The next experience was too.

The set-up comes on Sunday

This other client had a similar experience while deepening her meditation. Meditation represents a large part of the Positively Focused Advanced Practice. This client, I’ll call Maddy, found that following her Broader Perspective as she practiced meditation significantly amplified her satisfaction. Let’s see what happened.

“I did something crazy today,” Maddy started. “It’s crazy, crazy-awesome and that’s actually what I like most.”

Maddy woke feeling overwhelmed the day before she texted me. She felt that way because she had the whole day to herself. Her partner spent the last two days with his family. It was Sunday, so Maddy didn’t have work. As such, she had nothing else to do other than be with herself. That confronted her with a kind of abundance she was ill-prepared for.

“There were so many things I could do,” She said. “So many things I got overwhelmed by all the things that I could possibly do. I didn’t know what to focus on. That felt overwhelming.”

Overwhelm is common for humans. It happens when a person perceives abundance as something other than that. In this case, Maddy saw “opportunity abundance” as “too many things to do”. The feeling “overwhelm” was telling her something important. Because of her Positively Focused practice, Maddy knew that.

And that’s where her Broader Perspective stepped in, she said. After breakfast she got the impulse to meditate before doing anything else. She said she looked forward to it.

“Typically I would reach for my watch and set a timer for 15 minutes,” She explained. “But my Broader Perspective said, “hey what if you did 30? That could be fun!” and I said “oh yeah let’s do 30!” 

Meditation can be way more than a source of stillness. (Photo by Dingzeyu Li on Unsplash)

She connects with her Broader Perspective

Maddy said after deciding to do a 30 minute meditation, “…there was a brief literal like split second, where I thought ‘that could be scary.’ That’s a long time. What if I don’t get through it all?”

“But then I said ‘well we’re gonna try it,'” she explained. “We’re gonna see what happens.”

So she settled in for her meditation and let herself go…

Before she knew it, her 30 minute timer went off!

“I was like ‘oh man I’m still, I’m still in this’ like my body felt like it was still not in the physical yet. Like I was still in the non-physical, in my meditation,” She said excitedly. “So I said ‘I’m just gonna hit this 30 minute timer again.’ And I meditated for another 30 minutes! I did an hour of meditation!”

Up to this point Maddy had never meditated anywhere close to an hour. This was a big step for her. But that was just the beginning, Maddy said.

“I felt really good,” She said. Right at that moment, she described how her Broader Perspective delivered to her another agenda.

“Somehow I created in my mind a list of things [to do]! I’m like ‘well they’re not in any sort of format. But these are the things that my Broader Perspective helped me realize are the most important that I could do today for the most impact.’” She explained.

She was right.

The crazy goodness of inspired productivity

Maddy wrote the list on a whiteboard. Instantly after doing that she realized she could take action on a few things right away.

“I got those done and then I came down and crossed off a few more,” She said. “And just suddenly everything felt really good and doable and possible. And then I sat and wrote not just the 750 words that I would normally write (each day). I was so inspired, I wrote 1500 words — twice as many!”

This is the thing about our Broader Perspective agenda. It offers things to do that will thrill us. And in doing them, we become thrilled! Then we kinda go crazy in that high vibration. That usually looks like extremely high productivity.

For example, by the time I got Maddy’s text, I already had two other ideas for blog posts this week. Getting her text added a third. Of course, I’m feeling extreme delight listening to her voice text message, so of course I’m going to turn it into a blog. Then, my Broader Perspective reminds me about Kevin’s awesome experience, so I included his story in this blog too!

It IS crazy how productive one can get by listening to one’s Broader Perspective. Crazy productive and crazy satisfied, which just feels so crazy good!

Great examples begetting great examples

I love hearing my client stories. They always inspire me. And they amplify my own stories. I also enjoy them because I know my clients share these stories with people they know. As a result, more people come to me, inspired by what they hear. Then they create their own versions of surprise, satisfaction and thrilling experiences. Just like my current clients.

That explains why mothers and their daughters, wives and their husbands, friends and their friends become clients. Nearly all my clients come by word of mouth. I do no advertising. And it’s not words coming from my mouth that draw these people in. It’s stellar experiences my clients share with people they know. Because, why wouldn’t they? When life feels as good as it does when one is Positively Focused, it’s hard to contain the joy.

It’s the joy of All That Is, which is what we are. We all are joyful beings, being as part of the expansion of All That Is. And when we get that, then live from there, some really awesome things start happening. We start receiving awesome free gifts from the Universe. Nothing beats that!

Is Relationship Anarchy The Way To Better Love?

Photo by Orit Matee on Unsplash

TLDR: Relationship Anarchy (RA) challenges traditional relationship norms by advocating for love without entitlement and relationships defined by personal values. However, the term’s negative connotations and anarchist affiliations have created misunderstandings. Despite RA’s merits, it cannot eclipse the ultimate relationship with one’s Broader Perspective, which provides unconditional love and fulfillment beyond what any human partnership can offer.

A relatively new relationship dynamic is emerging. More people find it a satisfying way to express themselves romantically and intimately while finding companionship. It’s called Relationship Anarchy (RA).

In this post we’re going to look at this new dynamic relationship model. Instead of getting into it deeply, we will compare it to what we recommend regarding relationships. That’s because, it’s a definite improvement on humanity’s past “success” with relationships. But it still falls short of the ultimate relationship: that one relationship that gives us everything we want. Including satisfying relationships.

So let’s take a look at Relationship Anarchy. Then let’s contrast that against the ultimate relationship. The only one through which we get everything we want.

What is RA?

Andie Nordgren coined the phrase Relationship Anarchy in 2006. Her English manifesto on the matter, written in 2012, gives broad strokes on what it looks like. The way Andie describes it, RA sounds great!

Among the broad strokes is the assertion that love is abundant. RA says entitlement runs rampant in traditional relationships and that entitlement should be replaced with love and respect. Andie recommends that people define their values, then use frequent communication to infuse their relationship with those values, alongside a partner who shares them.

The biggest shift from traditional relationships is Andie’s suggestion to “customize” one’s relationship and commitment. Rather than relying on social norms, Andie says, we should define our relationship on our own terms while ignoring society’s expectations.

It’s no wonder then that Wikipedia includes RA in its non-monogamy
and polyamory series.

Anarchist affiliations…not good

And while Andie describes it optimistically without comparing it to something else, Wikipedia takes a different tack. And this is where problems start to show up.

That’s because the word “anarchy” itself is problematic. It brings a lot of bad interpretations to the table. Further, most people familiar with the term see anarchy as destructive. Even though anarchists claim the concept to be quite constructive. Historically, the movement has not been constructive, however.

The result is anarchy is seen predominantly as “anti-“. It’s also often associated with violence.

We can’t be “anti” something without enflaming that thing we’re against. Which explains why anarchists have made virtually no progress in creating society based on its merits.

And that brings us back to RA. And Wikipedia.

The anti relationship

The Wikipedia entry on RA describes its principles as pretty much anti-everything. At least when it comes to relationships. I would argue Andie doesn’t see RA that way. Andie’s characterization is fresh, positive and encouraging. But the Wikipedia entry. Well, see for yourself:

Indeed, this article, featuring two people in an RA relationship, speak in similar language. They contrast and define their relationship by what it’s not, comparing it to existing, undesirable relationships (according to them).

Now it could be the Wikipedia contributor who wrote the article is biased. He could interpret “anarchy” as “anti”. But the article linked in the above paragraph also characterizes RA as a “political” take on relationships. One trying to redefine what relationships look like. One also striving to “fix” power dynamics some RA believers think are bad.

But can we really define something based on what it is not? I think Andie does a better job describing the concept. It seems, however, many took the concept in a different direction.

The best relationship

Which brings me to the point of this piece. RA is great. It’s offers a fresh view of relationships. It certainly offers better options. Better options for those who feel uncomfortable with amatonormative edicts. It’s therefore not surprising the couple in this article includes both a trans person and a queer woman.

And yet, all relationships with other people fall short when compared to the one relationship that gives us everything we want. That is, our relationship with our Broader Perspective. While it’s nice finding love in another’s eyes, that love will nearly always be conditional.

Even in an RA relationship.

For even there, a person must find connections with people who have similar values. That makes sense. But even then, people will sometimes end up in conflict. What the couple does in that case depends a lot on how stable they are within themselves. And there’s no better stability than that found in our Broader Perspective.

Besides, our relationship with our Broader Perspective opens us to a love causing other loves to pale in comparison. It’s strong. It’s lasting. Our Broader Perspective’s love literally overwhelms us in its depths. And it feels freaking great!

Furthermore, through our Broader Perspective, everything is possible. Including finding the perfect partner. That is, if one wants that. This relationship is the best relationship out there. In so many ways it offers what human ones cannot.

When we put our Broader Perspective relationship first, others happen easily. (Photo by Oziel Gomez on Unsplash)

Literally everything we want..including freedom from death

Our Broader Perspective relationship is here to lead us to everything we want. All our desires get fulfilled through it. Our Broader Perspective constantly showers us with that which we’re wanting. When we put that relationship up front, those things flow easily into our reality.

Human partners can help us get things. They can connect us with jobs. They may even connect us with financial opportunity. But those too often come through filters, filters that often aren’t in synch with what we really want.

In other words, our Broader Perspective knows us best. It knows what will thrill us. It knows the best path to everything we want. Whether that be a material thing, or something else.

But the biggest thing that relationship offers is something no human can touch. It offers freedom from the fear of death. I know, that sounds crazy. After all, so many of us are too busy living. Too busy living to think about death.

Well, it seems that way.

But most people’s fear of death is front and center in their lives. It’s one reason people worry about time running out. Their fear of getting old has its basis in death. So does their fear of being single.

Fear of death takes many forms

The fear of death is pervasive in the world. It doesn’t feel like it’s about death though. That’s because the fear hides behind other fears.

What kind of fears? Fears of being cast out of a group, for example. The fear of losing one’s job is another. The fear of being unable to support one’s family is yet another. As is the fear of one’s human partner betraying us. There are plenty more.

These fears mimic the ultimate fear, which is the fear of dying.

And so people respond to all these fears in predictable ways. They’re impatient. They’re demanding. They are desperate. And in that, they cut themselves off from the one thing that can relieve them of all these fears and more: their Broader Perspective.

The fear of ending up here can take many forms. (Photo by davide ragusa on Unsplash)

Now I’m not saying don’t have human partners. What I am saying is, first, ground ourselves in the one partnership giving us everything we want. Including the beating of our hearts and the breath we take.

And when one finds that, there’s little “need” for anything else. Because everything else naturally flows from there. Including human love.

I’m in favor of RA. I wish it had a different name. RA is closer to the Broader Perspective love I’ve described in this post than many of the other relationships humans form. Including parent-child relationships. There’s still a ways to go though.

The better it gets the better it gets

And isn’t that the great thing about life experience? There is always a ways more to go. Because life is eternal. We never get to the end. We’re never perfect. But in the perfection of the now, we are perfect. Not perfect as in “complete”. Not perfect as in “done”. But perfect in our becoming more.

Standing there, I see this RA concept fitting what I want in partnership. With my stability rooted in my Broader Perspective, I know what I’m wanting is on the way. I’m eager to see it unfold. I’ve had tastes of it. And I’m patient for further unfolding.

Andie’s onto something. I’m eager to learn more about RA. But I’m clear something better exists. I enjoy that something now. Which allows me to feel excitement. Excitement and joy about those finding satisfaction in RA.

Good partnerships elude many. That’s because many look there for something that’s not there. Something that only comes from a relationship with themselves. I write this blog to show people how to “know thyself”. And in doing that, find happiness from within. Instead of looking for it outside themselves.

My clients consistently find that happiness. Along the way, they get more of what they want too. Their examples fill me with eagerness. They also amplify my own happiness. A happiness that gets better and better.

Maybe you’re ready for your version of that? If you are, contact me. Let’s get you started. Let’s find out how “better” life can get.

Yet Even More Great Shape-Shifting Results!

Photo by Mark Tegethoff on Unsplash

TLDR: The writer’s recent meditation experiences, including heightened brain activity in the Pineal Gland, hint at unlocking spiritual abilities and a deeper connection with the Absolute, potentially leading to profound changes in reality perception and matter manipulation.

Evidence is coming fast and steady now. Each one gives me greater confidence that shape shifting is a thing. It’s something I can actually experience in this life.

Meditation sessions this past week brought even more confindence-bolstering evidence. Whereas previous recent evidence brought new awareness, this time, evidence confirmed something I already knew.

Check out what happened.

My lineage speaks on the matter

In recent meditations, both the body and brain became more active as I focused on shape shifting and other “supernatural” manifestations. This all started with my body. I calmed my mind. Then I felt “thrills” moving through it, much like Robert Butts described his and his wife, Jane Roberts’, experiences. Jane and Robert are well known celebrities. They’re renown as mediums for Seth.

And while Seth confirms shape shifting and teleportation are things that can happen, he doesn’t mince words. These aren’t easy feats, he says. Accomplishing them means the adept has become…well…adept.

Abraham says the same thing about other manifestations, particularly about manifesting large amounts of money. Interestingly, Seth was almost completely uninterested in such things. So much so he discouraged listeners from pursuing them. Abraham, on the other hand, offers hearty encouragement for anything someone might want. Indeed, any desire expands the Universe. So every desire is worthy. Worthy of our attention. And worthy of enjoying.

I think this dichotomy of interest represents something many don’t understand about spirituality. Spiritual teachings, like everything else in the Universe, expands. They grow. They mature. As generations evolve, teachings evolve too.

Which is why, for example, I’m surprised people still quote Buddhist Hinayana teachings, or the Christian Old Testament. Newer versions of that wisdom exist in both religions. Yet people still adhere to the old.

Crazy.

The body getting involved more

After the “thrills”, my body then manifested other effects. It often became inexplicably rigid while in meditation. Then it began “roiling”; waves of energy flowed along its longitudinal axis. This flowing felt wonderful. And my research suggested it’s probably my Kundalini energies waking up. That’s cool.

Most recently my brain got involved too. Or, rather, parts of my brain. I wrote about this previously. In that post, I wrote about medical research into brain functions and surprising correlations I found between that research and my experiences. It was quite a find!

Last week’s experience took it a step further. More brain functions got in on the act. Functions I’ll describe shortly.

Bodily sensations indicate progress…(Photo by Warren Wong on Unsplash)

An interesting point to note: from the Positively Focused perspective, the brain is a manifestation. It, along with the body, are not real, per se. The brain’s main function is as a transceiver. It translates vibration into physical reality. Physical senses assist with that. The brain also transmits vibration from thought back into pure vibration. But its main function is to receive and translate vibration into “reality”.

There are parts of the brain, however, that exist for other reasobs. And it’s those parts that are starting to “waken” in me. An awakening that may indicate progress.

Enter the “Pinecone”

In the last post I wrote about the cerebellum. I detailed how it became active during meditation. So much so, it created pressure against parts of my head. I also speculated about correlations between medical speculations of the cerebellum’s function with my experience relative to my desire to shape shift, teleport and travel outside my body among other things.

This last week another part of my brain got in on the act. It’s a part familiar to many in the psychedelic and supernatural space. It’s called the Pineal Gland.

So I’m next going to give some background on this part of the brain. Then I’ll describe my experience in mediation last week.

Medical science says this gland is part of our endocrine system. Its primary purpose, according to science, is regulating sleep through melatonin production. The name derives from the gland’s pinecone shape.

This gland generated substantial speculation through history. But it also has been subject of extreme focus in spiritual circles. Those circles say this gland plays a central role in spiritual experiences. Adepts saw it as the “third eye”. It was the seat of spiritual insight. To them it was the doorway between the physical and spiritual.

It’s interesting to note the following. Draw a straight line down the body. Draw it along the chakra meridians. Next, draw a line from the “third eye” center, between and slightly above the eyebrows, back out the back of the skull. Where these two lines intersect, say some spiritualists, rests the Pineal Gland.

It’s not an exact intersection. The gland actually rests slightly below that point. Still, it’s interesting to read about spiritualists’ intense focus on this part of the brain.

The Pineal Gland (in red) (By Life Science Databases (LSDB).)

The active ingredient?

Some say the Pineal Gland also produces the psychoactive N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT). Many reports contest this claim, however. This one, for example. DMT is found throughout the body. But that production appears insufficient to create spiritual experiences.

Indeed, I used to brew my own Ayahuasca. The recipe required about 25 mg of DMT from one source plant. I then combined that with another plant containing another chemical. That chemical prevents the body from breaking down the DMT. My brew was powerful. One dose took me through over four hours of transcendence.

The Pineal Gland is super small. It weighs less than .2 grams. That’s about 0.000440925 pounds! So it’s unlikely to produce 25mg of DMT. What’s more, we also need that other chemical, because the body rapidly breaks down DMT. This gland, therefore, if it did produce DMT, likely couldn’t produce enough for transcendence. 

My belief is, something else is happening. Something is happening with the Pineal region. This seems in line with my cerebellum experience. So I’m going to now (finally!) get to the experience which prompted this post. Then I’ll explain what I think is happening.

This Neuroscientist buzz kills the link between the Pineal Gland and spirituality…maybe.

What happened…and why?

So there I was….laying on my back. Typically these days, the moment I lay down for meditation, instantly, freaky things commence. This was no exception. Only this time, I felt a funnel shape form in my head. The funnel “pointed” down, into my body. The funnel’s large opening was – you guessed it – right underneath where I knew my Pineal Gland is.

Instantly after laying down, I felt that portion of my brain being “pulled” into that funnel. Oddly, I wasn’t scared. It actually felt good! So I focused on the sensation. Doing so, the “feeling” grew more intense. I turned all my focus on that region of my body and passively observed as it got more and more intense.

Then I felt “me” being “drawn” into the funnel! At the same time, I felt something “activate” in that region. Was it the Pineal Gland? What else could it have been!? That’s where the feeling localized. So that was my conclusion.

Now, I know it took a long time in this post to get to this experience. But that was necessary. It was necessary to set up what you’re going to read next. That is, what I think is really going on with the Pineal Gland and, for that matter, the cerebellum.

Seeing what’s really there: The Absolute

I wrote above that the brain is like all matter. It’s not a real thing. Sure, we can take one out of an animal and examine it. We can take it apart. We can examine and label its subparts. But all of that is happening in a physical reality that is 100 percent vibration.

Since you’ve read this far, I’m sure you’re familiar with the facts about physical reality. That is, that everything physical is mostly space. It’s not solid at all. And, that “material” comprising “matter” is mostly vibrational, probable states of energy. That’s what atomic matter is: energy in vibrational probability states. And everything is composed of atomic matter. In other words, matter represents energy probabilities popping “in” and “out” of existence in this plane.

All that is is mostly space. (Photo by Omkar Jadhav on Unsplash)

The brain is a gestalt of those vibrational probabilities. So is the cerebellum. And so is the Pineal Gland.

Now, science doesn’t accept that a nonphysical reality exists. Its whole existence is based on a commonly-observed, objective, physical reality. One that is separate from subjective observers. This is a distortion.

Here’s what I believe is happening in my meditations. I’m tuning myself more and more into a certain frequency. A probable frequency vibration whose probability is 1. That means it’s always there. In other words, it is The Absolute. It is what some call “god”.

As I tune myself to that, I perceive that Absolute state as “me”. When that happens, the “true nature of my being” – including that underlying my physical-ness – comes to the forefront. The illusion of physical reality begins to break away. Then I am able to see All That Is as it really is.

Building a scaffold

I believe I’m building myself a foundation in The Absolute. When I’m able to stand there in confidence, I speculate I will be able to deliberately alter matter existing in physical states. I’ll be able to consciously direct what state matter takes from among its probabilities. And that’s what Shape Shifting is all about.

It’s not just about changing one’s body into something else. It’s way more sophisticated than that. First off, it requires a stable “location” or scaffold. A place where one can “stand” so as to direct the shift without being caught up in it and becoming frightened. This location soothes the ego and allows it to exist in the midst of changes. Changes that otherwise would threaten its role. A role the ego performs with grace, a grace that allows us to exist in physical reality as though it is a stable, objective reality that appears separate from us.

The cerebellum and the Pineal Glad both are physical analogues to the ego. They aren’t the function through which spiritual or esoteric abilities originate. Instead, they are physical analogues. They represent vibrational probabilities of one’s ability to exhibit such abilities.

Feet, for example, represent probability of motion. Balance does too. Many other physical features do too. When a baby learns to crawl, movement probability goes to 1. Until then, it’s somewhere less than that.

I believe I’m somewhere between learning to crawl and run. The more I practice, the better I get. The better I get, the more is revealed to me. I can’t say when, but soon, I’ll be running. By running, I mean being able to do things people think are impossible. Like shape shifting, for example.

There’s more coming…

I’m convinced it’s a done deal. Evidence in other areas of my life support this. My financial condition has vastly improved as a result of this practice. Nearly all my clients have come from previous clients’ lives improving so much, their example inspires those around them to become clients. This is Law of Attraction at work.

My other spiritual experiences prove this too. I write about all these in this blog. Continue reading and following along. It’s proving to be an amazing, awesome, fulfilling ride.

How Your Behavior Reveals Practical, But Hidden Life Hacks

Photo by David Matos on Unsplash

TLDR: A man, recently laid off despite positive job feedback, doesn’t realize his negative beliefs attract such experiences. His subsequent “adult tantrum” reveals deeper insight into why he keeps losing his jobs. And shows the rest of us how to benefit from an important life hack.

A client had a disappointing experience: he got laid off. It wasn’t something he was expecting. In fact, when the boss told him, it shocked him because, up to then, the boss said the client was doing a great job. In reality, he should have expected it because he was expecting it.

But he wasn’t aware he was expecting it because he didn’t have access to the hidden, practical hack life had been offering him for decades. A life hack that could dramatically alter his success.

Of course, the layoff wasn’t about the client. The boss, who also is the business owner, had to make personnel cuts. The business wasn’t supporting itself. And in most businesses, employees represent the largest business costs. So someone had to go. Our client had the least amount of students. It made sense the boss would let him go.

But my client didn’t see it that way. He played it cool in the moment, when his boss broke the news. But when he got home, his thoughts and behavior changed, a lot.

This story is about gifts hidden amidst our actions. Physical reality, including our actions, offer great clues about what we’re creating. Understanding this can dramatically change our lives for the better. That understanding, however, comes with practice.

Let’s see what happened next with this client so we can understand how what happened next offered him wonderful hacks that could dramatically improve his life.

An adult tantrum

The client said that upon arriving home he went straight into his tool shed. There, he “kicked the hell out a bucket for a good ten minutes.” While doing that, he cursed his former boss, the business and his “luck” for being the one to lose a job “AGAIN.”

Now, the fact that he mentioned losing another job “again” wasn’t surprising. This phrase indicated two things: one, that he has very strong negative momentum creating persistent experiences of losing jobs. Two, his awareness of the fact that he keeps losing jobs is perpetuating that momentum. I told him this, but at the moment, he was too embittered to hear it.

So I shifted the focus.

I said to him that his “adult tantrum” in the shed offered him a wonderful gift. That caught his attention. I don’t think he expected that. I then explained how our acts in physical reality are manifestations. Just like our desires turning into things, our actions are manifestations reflecting beliefs we hold about the world around us. Furthermore, if we can read what those acts are saying, we can transform our lives.

He wanted to know more. So I told him what his tantrum was telling him.

Actions like tantrums hide within them important clues about what we’re creating (Photo by Dmitry Vechorko on Unsplash).

A steady diet turns to hate

All of us create our reality through our thoughts. Persistently held thoughts turn to beliefs. Thoughts that become beliefs have gathered enough momentum to complete the process of turning into things. Persist in that belief and that belief will turn into physical reality. Then reality will reflect the essence of that belief back to us. At that point, our belief becomes “true”. When it does, the belief recedes into the background of our awareness. Meanwhile, the belief gets “confirmed” in our experience as “the way life is.”

For this client, “the way life is” is that he can’t keep a job. But that’s not the whole story. For decades, this client fostered a steady diet of anger and frustration about capitalism, money and earning a living. He sees these things as scourges on humanity and the planet. The client resents having to earn a living. He dislikes doing work he doesn’t enjoy. And he doesn’t like needing money to get his basic necessities.

These beliefs took up residence in his vibration many years ago. Jobs he manifested since then showed him more evidence of his distasteful economic reality: those jobs he got paid little. His managers always belittled him. And, of course, they laid him off. One job he kept for some time wasn’t helpful either. He wrote copy for a blog. A blog that critiqued capitalism and the money system.

But you can see how the client was a perfect match to that job. In that job, he amplified his anger and frustration about capitalism, money and earning a living into hate for those things. That is, until owners of that company laid him off too…

Success eluding him

By this time, the client found himself at wits end. His hate over capitalism, money and earning a living overflowed. Finally, he turned to gig work. He delivered meals for a time before going onto social security. That soothed some of his negative momentum, which allowed him to get the last job. The one in which he, again, got laid off.

I told this client his actions in the tool shed told him something important. “Here you are taking out your frustration on something having nothing to do with what happened” I said, referring to the bucket. “The bucket didn’t lay you off.”

In fact, the boss didn’t either. If “you create your reality” is accurate (and it is) then this client laid himself off. The boss only did what was a reflection of the client’s dominant intent. He was a cooperative component to my client’s unfolding understanding, in other words. The intent wasn’t to get laid off. The intent was to reflect to the client where his beliefs were in conflict with his desires.

Despite extremely negative interpretations of the world around him, this client wants a life that’s easy. He even wants money. He’s a musician and writer and one of his great desires is to receive generous compensation as recognition of his talents. Of course, he wouldn’t put it that way. He would say “I DESERVE recognition because of the blood, sweat and tears I’ve put into my art!”

But that way of expressing it creates resistance. It’s more aligned with his hatred of the money system. Which explains why that success continues eluding him.

Putting blame outside ourselves

I told the client this is what his tantrum offers: an opportunity for him to see what he’s doing. He’s literally blaming everyone and everything for his troubles. He’s also blaming “the system” and “money” for his troubles. All the while, he’s ignoring the only Source of power he has…and the only Source from which his experience springs: himself.

“You beating up that bucket,” I told him. “Is showing you how, in your powerless state, you’re projecting your power onto things and people that have no responsibility for your created reality. And in doing that, you feel tremendous pain. Because that pain tells you that your Broader Perspective knows different.”

Our Broader Perspective is clear that we create our reality. No one else does that for us. We do, and only we do. When we blame circumstances or others for an experience, that shitty feeling we experience while doing that is an indicator telling us something important. It tells us our thoughts and behaviors are at loggerheads with what our Broader Perspective knows.

That’s important because if we heed that message, we can dramatically change our lives for the better. And it’s to our advantage to do so. Because no one else will do it for us. That’s because no one else is in our reality other than us.

When beliefs change, life changes

But this manifestation business is not magic. We can’t create around our persistent beliefs. This client has 40+ years of negative momentum he’s going to need to unravel. So for this client, it may be a while before he really understands what’s happening. Before he understands well enough to take productive action.

Every action we take in life is a manifestation. They reflect back to us a belief we hold. Decipher that reflection and we get a clear sense of what we believe. And what we believe creates our life experience.

That means, if we change our beliefs, our life experience must also change. Isn’t that a great thing to know? I think it is. But it’s even better experiencing this in one’s personal experience. Because nothing teaches better than personal experience.

All this means changing our lives is as easy as changing our beliefs. And our actions constantly shower us with clues to beliefs creating our life.

What a cool hack! Examine beliefs and we change life. Tapping into that hack is a powerful resource. The challenge is, understanding what hack tells us about what beliefs we hold can be tricky. It helps to know how to interpret them accurately. Let me show you how.

Postscript

A wonderful followup needs to be added here. I wrote this story weeks ago. Two weeks after this happened, the client, after I held his feet to the fire about what he was doing, decided to re-commit to the Positively Focused Practice. What happened after a week of rededication is remarkable. But also it’s just what happens when one becomes positively focused.

That pending newspaper interview is a direct manifestation of his desire to gain notoriety for his artistic expression. Is it a coincidence it came to him after rededicating himself to the practice? My clients know the answer to that question is “NO!”.

Traveling Outside My Body: A Wonderful Update

Photo by Andrew Spencer on Unsplash

TLDR: The writer discusses their journey to master astral projection through soothing resistance and believing it’s possible, as recent deliberate steps lead to significant progress and heightened spiritual awareness.

As mentioned in previous posts, I’m soothing resistance so that I can enjoy “astral projections”. By “soothing resistance” I mean letting go of beliefs preventing being able to leave my body.

Since everything is possible, doing this is easy. We all do it, after all. Every night we “dream” that’s what we’re doing. We’re traveling astrally.

So projecting my consciousness outside my body isn’t something to “learn”. Rather, it’s something to “allow”. How do we allow? We do it by soothing beliefs making doing so seem impossible.

This post updates my progress so far.

Let’s dive in.

Moving beyond mind

Previous out of body travels were predominantly involuntary experiences. They came unexpectedly. One minute I’d be in my body. The next, I was out. These mostly happened while sleeping or meditating. That makes sense because resistant beliefs aren’t active in those mind states. Especially beliefs that trigger fear of the experience.

Meanwhile, my Broader Perspective knows how to work around those beliefs. This is the case with all desires. Broader Perspective wends its way through what Abraham calls “the cracks of least resistance”. These are pathways through our resistant beliefs, beliefs standing between where we are and what we want. In this way our Broader Perspective knows better than our ego awareness how to manifest desires. This explains why it’s not our ego’s job to figure out how something must happen.

Besides, ego consciousness isn’t equipped to do that. That’s why when we focus on the how, we usually get bogged down in our befuddlement. Brains are physical manifestations of ego consciousness. They are not equipped to understand the how.

Traveling outside the body necessitates leaving all that behind. I must be getting better at doing that because my recent results are astounding.

Deliberate baby steps…

Since I had an adverse reaction long ago to a particularly powerful awakening moment, my Broader Perspective is easing me through the “how”. This process therefore feels extremely gradual. My Broader Perspective knows which of my beliefs could shut down my experience. I can feel that awareness working in me.

Just to clarify; our Broader Perspective isn’t outside is. It’s not a god or other divine being separate from what we are. Our Broader Perspective IS us. It is that aspect of us which remains in nonphysical. It remains there so as to guide the other aspect of us which comes into these physical bodies.

It’s therefore a mistake to picture Broader Perspective as separate from us. Doing that can introduce distortions in beliefs. Distortions that can make what I’m up to difficult or impossible.

Since I’m not making that mistake, I’m finding progress towards leaving my body happening consistently as weeks go by. It’s still gradual. No earth-shaking, amazing occurrences are surprising me. Instead, expansion into astral travel abilities feels like deliberate, baby steps to eventually sojourning through creation while my body lies in repose on my bed.

I’ll share what those baby steps feel like next.

Perceiving the ephemeral

It’s 4:06 as I’m writing this. I just came out of a pleasing meditation. I typically meditate for between an hour and 90 minutes around this time every morning. Usually between two and four AM. I believe those hours hold special energies for such practices.

Coming out of meditation, I received an impulse to write this post.

While prepping for bed last night, I felt familiar urging of my Broader Perspective. It encouraged me to settle my mind and focus in ways that heighten spiritual awareness. Doing so, I can feel varying degrees of vibrations. It’s extremely subtle. Perceiving vibration this way results from a rigorous spiritual practice involving of a lot of meditation and other Positively Focused practices.

I really did write this in the early morning!

While in that heightened awareness and perceiving those frequencies, I also felt my Broader Perspective guiding me to “feel” my ephemeral presence, my “spirit body”, or that ethereal body that is my inner energetic being. I know all that sounds extremely “woo”. But how else can I explain it? It really is a “you had to be there” moment. In other words, having the experience is a better way of explaining this than trying to explain it.

Anyway, while focused on that energy body, I didn’t have to really do anything other than focus on it. Not with a “hard” focus though. Instead I do better perceiving it when I focus like I do when using peripheral vision. Or maybe seeing things in really low light. I’m not looking directly at the thing, but see it anyway. Does that make sense?

I hope so.

Gaining comfort with the ephemeral

As I focused on that energy body, I felt it/me becoming more and more distinct from my physical body. And this is where the progress happened.

Rather than try to will a travel experience, I instead decided to focus on “feeling” or “witnessing” that ephemeral feeling; the feeling of what that energy body feels like. It was like running my physical hands all over my physical body. Only I was doing that with “energy hands” over my “energy body”. I knew this was the step to take because it would accomplish two things.

One it would amplify the experience by confirming what was happening. It would also soothe resistant beliefs. After all, I can’t disbelieve an experience I’m actually having, can I?

Second, it would give me greater control, comfort and familiarity with this new-to-my-ego experience. That was important. It was important because my ego is responsible for violently shutting down that powerful awakening experience I had long ago. And I didn’t want to repeat that experience.

Enjoying the peak moment

So I remained in that state feeling myself for probably 40 minutes. It felt amazing! And in doing that I also felt the “boundary” between my physical body and this energy one. It literally felt like the two were slightly out of sync. Which is exactly what it should feel like as one separates from the other!

Then, at one moment, I decided to try coming back into the physical body. When I did, my legs “jiggled” and I felt an electric wave move through them. It was like the body was receiving into itself the energetic sensation of “me” returning to “it”!

I’m sure you can imagine how amazing that experience felt.

After a few more of these moments, I decided to fully re-enter the physical body. When I did I noticed something very peculiar. And this was the peak moment of this whole experience.

In my body I didn’t feel cold. But when I touched certain parts of my body with my physical hands —my knees, the top of my feet, for example— they felt VERY cold. Again, I didn’t feel cold in my body. But parts of my body, when touched with my physical hands did feel cold.

The cold surfaces correlated with parts of the body I would have left “last” as I “rose” out of the body. I was on my back. The parts I touched were all parts at the upper most part of my body in repose.

This all happened while laying toasty under a fleece blanket, a fleece top sheet, fleece bottom sheet and a down duvet. There was no physical-reality explanation for feeling cold. Especially in the locations where I felt cold!

You had to be there!

Ok. So I get this may not sound very thrilling. I swear you need to have the experience to really get it. Nevertheless I’m THRILLED with these results.

While writing this, I’m eager about experiments I want to run to further improve my awareness. I want to visit friend’s locations, observe things I could only see were I there, then call my friends and report what I saw. Then I want to travel to distant places and see what I can bring back.

That’s right, Seth says I can even travel to such places and actually bring back physical artifacts from those destinations. Can you imagine!?

I can!

I’m eager for more of this. And I deeply appreciate All That Is and my core intention, both of which are leading me on this auspicious trajectory.

Maybe my journey is inspiring you to take your own. If so, I can help, obviously. Become a client! Let’s do this.

How To Tell Your Jedi Powers Are Getting Stronger

TLDR: This post shares two instances of near-instant manifestations through deliberate creation. By focusing on what is wanted, the creator experienced the desired outcomes, showcasing the power of deliberate creation and manifestation.

This morning was an amazing, delightful experience. It confirmed, as many things in my life do, my expanding power as a creator. Powers creators possess resemble those of the fabled Jedi of Star Wars.

It’s no idle boast. If you’re reading this blog regularly you know. If not, you will if you do.

This amazing morning event came on the heels of another, astounding realization. Although I must say, I’m getting used to feeling astounded. It may be my new normal!

But it was how speedily both happened that really thrilled me. Both featured tiny gaps between my asking and receiving. By “gaps” I mean the time elapsing between my asking for the manifestation and getting it. Past manifestations came with fairly big gaps.

Narrowing gaps tell us something important. Enjoying near-instant manifestations feels great. But they also indicate one has improved dramatically their ability to create. They show “manifesting” getting easier and easier.

This is why I tell clients to focus on small creations. For one, small creations are more plentiful. They offer a lot of poof of improvement. But they also are easier to create. So they help people build trust. Trust that they are a creator. As that trust builds, they get more bold. They want to create more complex creations. Like piles of money. Or world-changing projects.

So let’s dive in and celebrate these two creations.

Better focus: Better futures

It was mid December. I was looking over my finances. Doing that, I said to myself, quite casually, “I’d like to have two more clients at my current rates.” My budget showed my client income covering all my expenses, with a little left over each month. I wanted a bit more left over each month.

Notice what I did here. I didn’t focus on the negative fact that I barely had any money left over! Most people will focus on that because that’s “what is”. They’ll look at what’s “true”. Unfortunately that’s not helpful if you want something other than what is.

Oh, we’re still creating when we’re focused on “what is”. The problem is, focusing there, we just create more of that: what is. That’s ok if we enjoy our what is. But if we don’t enjoy it and we focus on it, we’re going to get more of what we don’t enjoy.

Dissatisfaction we feel when looking at that unpleasant truth tells us in advance exactly what you just read. That emotion (displeasure) says: “Hey! You’re using your unlimited powers to create something you’re not going to like. Knock it off!”

But most people don’t know that. So they double down. They bemoan their finances. Or they try to fix the finances through doing: By getting another job, using credit card debt, or some other unsustainable approach. It’s no wonder many people on tight incomes work two or more jobs. See how unsatisfying that solution is?

Meanwhile, All That Is is UNLIMITED and so are we! We can create ANY reality we want. Including one in which our finances align with our desires. First, we must stop trying to get what we want by doing. Then we must stop focusing on “what is”.

Run from reality: it pays. Literally!

That’s not easy to do because the entire world wants us focused on “truth”. It wants us to be “realistic”. People want us to “get real”, “face reality”. They want us to “grow up”. Especially our parents.

They want us to do that because they’ll feel better about doing the same thing. That’s right. They’re being realistic. And MISERY LOVES COMPANY. Which explains why people call the optimistic ones pipe smokers, dreamers and head-in-the-sanders. I suggest you run from people and the world straight into your own optimistic reality. You’ll love it there!

That’s what I’m finding. And that’s exactly where I found my power.

So there I was, looking at my finances. I looked for just a few moments. Then I turned deliberately to what I wanted. I did this mentally. Physically, I closed my spreadsheet application and my computer. I knew what they were telling me. I didn’t need to keep looking at it.

Instead I just went about my day. Three days later, I got two FREE 1:1 appointment emails from two different people. They both had first names starting with “J”. They also both had gmail email addresses. Both scheduled their free session on the same Tuesday, one right after the other. A week later, both became paying clients at my current rates!

Music set the scene

The second manifestation happened in early January. I enjoy an Apple Music subscription. The variety of music there offers so much satisfaction. I also enjoy the Apple Music app on my iPhone. It’s intuitive, simple to use and has other features I really appreciate. One of those features is the ability to “favorite” songs.

On one of my daily walks, I wanted to listen to all tracks I favorited in my “music library”. The app allows user-created playlists and also creates automatic playlists. One of those is a “Top 25 tracks” playlist. It plays the 25 songs I’ve listened to the most. But I probably have favorited well over 100 songs. On this walk, I wanted to shuffle all of them, not just listen to the top 25.

The problem was the app didn’t have a way to do that. The closest “hack” was to sort my library by “favorites” then play them in that order. I couldn’t play them shuffled, in other words. Had I tried, the app would shuffle them along with all the other songs in my library.

The “hack” was good enough. Until day two, when I wanted to listen again. I couldn’t start at the beginning of my favorites. That would mean I’d listen to the first 20 or so tracks anytime I wanted to walk. So I had to remember where I was in the list and start playing from there.

That would have been annoying if I didn’t know what I know. Since I do know what I know, however, I did something different. And it made all the difference.

Getting it right

Instead of complaining in my head about this situation, I appreciated and enjoyed hearing my favorite tracks. I really, really appreciated and enjoyed them! I mean, after all, I really like these songs. It’s why I favorited them!

I also appreciated the fact that I could sort my library by favorites first. That was a nice feature, I thought. So I appreciated that part of the existing app. Then I melted into my walk, the beautiful, cold day and the music flowing into my ears…

What did I do here?

I didn’t focus on what was missing. I didn’t focus on the fact that the app doesn’t have a feature where I could play ONLY my favorites, shuffled. Instead, I enjoyed existing app features that allowed a semblance of what I wanted. See the difference?

Most people, when they can’t get what they want, will focus on that. They’ll throw an adult version of a tantrum. They’ll focus a lot of their creative energy on the problem. They won’t line up with the solution. As a result, their creative focus gives them more to complain about instead of leading them to the solution. I know that’s what happens. So instead, I focused on how great it would feel to listen to my favorite songs.

Of course, that’s what I was already, actually doing. So it was easy focusing there on “what is”. In doing that, I aligned with that future probable reality in which a version of the app existed that INCLUDED a favorites, shuffled playlist.

Ask and it’s given

Less than three days later, as I was preparing to go to bed, I got a software update notification on my iPhone. I usually activate these over night. This was no exception. I didn’t bother looking at what the update did. I trust Apple.

Every morning I fill my space with soothing music, usually right after an hour meditation. The next morning was no exception. I opened my iPhone, activated the Apple Music app. The app opened, but on top of the app was a notification of new features. Features that came as part of the update.

That’s what astonished me. You guessed it: the updated Apple Music app now featured a “favorites” playlist. One in which I could shuffle the tracks!

In that instance of astonishment, I didn’t think to grab a screen shot to accompany this post. Later, though, I realized I have Apple Music on all my Apple devices. So I could grab one from my iPad:

Voila! Manifestation!

So by casually asking, then not focusing on an unpleasant what is, I lined up with a future probable reality consistent with my desire. And that’s what emerged in my physical reality. How’s that for Jedi power?

How eternity happens

You may think “that’s a coincidence”. But my clients and I know there’s no such thing.

If it’s not a coincidence, then what is it? It’s me deliberately selecting a future reality from among infinite probable futures, the one that includes what I’m wanting. That’s the nature of creation. That’s how we, as eternal, powerful creators, create our subjective reality.

And when we do that, the Universe and all entities in that revel in that fulfilled desire. All That Is possesses tremendouswherewithal. It can create ANY OUTCOME. It is voracious in that capacity. That’s because All That Is is constantly wanting to know itself. The paradox of its existence is; it can never fully know itself because as it knows more of itself it creates more of itself. It’s that dynamic, that dynamic tension, that gives rise to eternity.

We function exactly the same way. We each strive for greater self-awareness. But we never reach the end of that. Because in every fulfilled desire is born new desire. And that new desire we voraciously desire to realize. Thus, we constantly become more, while wanting to know the more we become. Voila! Eternity!

I love knowing what I know. I love seeing myself improve as a creator. It’s fun developing powers talked about in Jedi Lore. The ability to create reality, including other people. You’re invited to share in the fun: become a client today.

Addendum: It’s two days after writing they post. I just got back from a walk in the Portland winter, which ice sheets replacing streets and sidewalks. On my walk I listened to my new playlist while appreciating my two new clients, both of whom had their first sessions Tuesday. I’M IN SO MUCH JOY in appreciating these two manifestations! Life is so wonderful!

The Wonderful Paradox Of Trying to Control People

Photo by Noah Buscher on Unsplash

People…Am I right?

I mean seriously! If only we could control how people behave. The world would be a better place, wouldn’t it? I mean, gosh, all those transgender people! All those right-wing whack-jobs!

If I were god…I would…

Many spiritual teachers encourage giving up and letting go of trying to control people. They even encourage going with the flow of everything. By letting go, they say, we free ourselves. We become more Zen.

It’s good advice. Especially when it comes to people.

But there’s more to this wisdom. That’s because within the letting go lies a paradox. The paradox being; when we let go we come into our power. And that power allows us absolute control of everything. Including other people.

Let’s explore that more.

Creating what we complain about

We cannot control people or events we witness with our eyes. We can’t because those people and events are complete manifestations in that moment. Trying to change those invites pushback. People get defensive. And events, well, they don’t change.

But future versions of events and people can and do change. However, most people focus on events and people they’re looking at. And when those events and people change in the future, they just change into more of what people see. It’s a paradox. It looks like things aren’t changing. They are though.

Eyes aren’t the only way we perpetuate more of what is. We also do it with our words. Complaining about a situation perpetuates it for example. Same with people. When we complain about others, we align ourselves to future versions of those people. That is, versions aligned with what we’re complaining about.

It’s kind of a built-in process of life experience. After all, we’re here to expand and grow into deeper levels of unconditional love. And when we’re not doing that – by complaining, for example – life gives us more to complain about. Until we give all that complaining up, let go and give in, what we complain about will get more intense on purpose.

Discovering absolute control

Giving in means letting the manifestED be. Instead of focusing on that, especially that which we don’t like, we can turn our attention to what we want. Holding focus there, we will, in time begin seeing a reality matching that focus.

In other words, what we focus on becomes our experience. The more purely we focus on what we want, the more of what we want we see.

This is the paradox of wanting to control. We can’t control circumstances or people. But when we focus on circumstances and people we want to experience, we manifest experience containing only that.

So we absolutely can control people and events. How else are we creating everything around us? It’s through control. Not of people and events. Those things are done, finished. But by leveraging our creative ability, by attending to our focus, the Universe then responds to that. And when it does, circumstance and people bend to our desire.

That’s right. We can create a version of anyone we want. All we need is focus.

Two clients recently proved this to themselves. They offer perfect examples. In one, the client experiences me creating a better version of her. I’ll set that up in a moment. In the other, a client creates a more loving version of her husband. You’ll hear what happened in both cases in the clients’ own words.

The paradox of this wisdom is when you exercise your focus, you have complete control of everything.

A client’s delight

In the first example, I created a better version of the client. The remarkable experience was the client herself recognized this without me pointing it out to her.

She had been no-showing her sessions over the course of many months. So, not being a hypocrite, I chose to create a version of this client who would attend her sessions regularly. Now, the Positively Focused Way isn’t magic. Things don’t instantly happen as a result of leveraging vibration.

But when held long enough, they do happen. They must or else the premises upon which the practice is based would prove false. In this case, it took six months for the new version of the client to emerge. What happened at the end of that period was astounding…mostly for the client. I knew what was going to happen though. Still, I enjoyed the client’s realization. You will too. Take a listen:

A client realizes what happened when I created an improved version of her.

Another client marvels at her power

In the next example, the client and her husband had a rough night. Both struggle with anxiety. That’s something I’m showing my client how to soothe. She’s doing great on that subject. Because of this, she’s taking the Positively Focused Way seriously. She sees evidence of its effectiveness. So she’s testing it everywhere in her life.

The night she and her husband experienced strong anxiety over finances, she decided to use the practice to create a better version of her husband. She told the story in her session, which she allowed me to share. It’s a perfect example, showing how accurate everything in this post is. Take a listen:

A client creates a better version of her husband.

Several other clients have experienced similar results. In fact, my clients have experienced so many examples, it’s undeniable to them and to me.

You can enjoy them in your own life

You are a creator. Every experience is your creation, wanted or not. Therefore, why not create experiences you want? Everyone can. My clients are proving it to themselves. You can prove it to yourself too.

And that’s the rub of life. Words are just that, words. They only go so far. But your life experience convinces better than any amount of words. Even words from me or my clients, people whose experiences have proven it to them.

This explains why I encourage everyone to put this practice to the test. Life is a wonderful spiritual experience. It’s a paradox therefore. It looks real. It’s about as real as it gets. But that “reality” belies how much control you have over it. It looks like an objective reality. It’s not though. It’s 100 percent subjective. And you are the subject. In other words, you’re the creator of it.

As such, you have absolute control. That’s because you’re creating it. All of it. So why not exercise that control deliberately? Let me who you how. Become a client today.
