Nothing better exists than joy felt when Positively Focused. Especially cool: when such joy comes easily through deliberate focus. After so much practice, such focus brings immediate high vibration. It’s a wonder, and yet not a wonder, if you know this delicious secret:
Your word becomes your world.
This morning, after wonderful dreams, I woke up feeling great. Feeling great upon waking happens every day these days. I’ve tuned myself into that place so it dominates my days.
This morning however, in my positive focus, I felt space for expansion into even greater greatness. Being clear as I am these days, gobbling up that extra expansionary increment sounded great.
So that’s what I did. Through deliberate focus I closed that gap, felt even greater, then shared my example with my clients. Here’s what I shared, direct from my journal:
Any wonder the following response came from one client?
I create world changers
When one develops chronic positive focus, such synchronicities become everyday occurrences. I write about this here every week. I also love showing clients how to create such everyday occurrences themselves. When they get it, they say things like this:
Doing that I change the world, one person at a time. I know the world must change as more people turn to positively focused perspectives. Doing so, they bring their godhood to Earth. When they do that, they change. That change means the world too must change.
I love knowing that.
There’s nothing better than in-the-moment love felt for no other reason but for the good feeling love brings. I love knowing love flows always, bringing greater knowing whenever I tap in to what I know about myself as All That Is.
I also love knowing there’s always a gap between where I stand and where I can stand. Closing that gap feels amazing. Then amazing things happen.
So, whenever I feel even the slightest slippage in my positive perspective, I know I can close the gap between me and me just by thinking positive thoughts.
It’s easy peasy. And there’s nothing like the feeling that comes when that gap closes.
Clients inevitably arrive at points in their Positively Focused practice where they must confront realities springing from disempowering beliefs.
Such was the case more than 12 weeks ago when a client triggered negative beliefs manifesting as physical ailments she believed had origins in neurological damage.
Of course, nothing like that happened. Yet, her beliefs made it appear so.
After visits to several specialists, all of whom diagnosed her as having an anxiety issue – not something with physical origins – my client continued entertaining a neurological basis for her physical symptoms. She wouldn’t accept spiritual origins for her symptoms. In fact, her symptoms were so strong she felt she must find an external (i.e. physical) cause. I think she thought her life literally depended on it.
It wasn’t until several specialists recommended she go on medicines she would have to take for the rest of her life that she said “fuck that” and tried a different approach.
Eventually her symptoms began subsiding. In their wake came a cautious joy, a renewed hopefulness. A pleasant result came not long after.
Everything is spiritual
Physical symptoms aren’t what they appear. All such symptoms share an identical origin no matter what the medical and mental health communities say.
I assert they come from the same place everything else manifestED comes from: manifestING reality. ManifestING reality begins as vibration shaped first by beliefs.
In other words, all physical symptoms represent fully manifestED realities. Such realities spring forth consistent with earlier manifestations which look and feel like beliefs, thoughts and ideas. We attract these based on who we believe ourselves into being.
Human bodies, for example, represent both manifestED and manifestING reality. Bodies communicate or reflect aspects of who and what we are as eternal beings. Eternal beingness projects itself into physical reality through such manifestations to interact with physical reality. So bodies represent our most intimate creations.
Our bodies constantly renew themselves based on our beliefs about them. This includes what ailments show up in and on them.
Such ailments also represent communication, projection and reflection. They reflect back to the reflector (the eternal being) dominant beliefs. Those dominant beliefs show up as ailments so the manifester can do something about them, before they go too far.
Seeking outside one’s self
The problem with physical symptoms shows up when people reach into the world of physical reality for symptomatic relief. Such relief “works” because we all (myself included up until recently) believe symptomatic relief comes from external “things”: injections, pills and surgical or other invasive procedures.
This approach isn’t bad. And, when beliefs in external solutions combine with persistent physical symptoms, usually no other route offers effective relief as a pill or procedure. So it’s best people do exactly what they do to cure ailments.
But all physical symptoms we seek relief from we can enjoy relief from…before such symptoms become physical. A Positively Focused practice offers such early onset relief.
Since most people aren’t Positively Focused though, we see many pandemics running rampant over the planet. I’m sure you can name some.
That’s because nearly everyone believes solutions to their problems remain outside themselves. Few really believe in reality’s spiritual origins. And fewer still knows this through personal experience. So they don’t reach for early onset relief, because they don’t know it exists. And since they don’t know such relief exists, they also don’t know how to reach for it.
Meanwhile, a lot of money gets made in people believing relief is externally derived.
The placebo effect is real
Yet, proof of internal-sourced relief abounds. In medical trials, for example, researchers often use placebos alongside expected effective treatments as part of outcome control. Such controls often include situations where trial subjects experience effective results expected from the proposed treatment. Only these subjects didn’t get the treatment. They only thought they did.
What’s happening here?
Placebo as a phenomena shows how belief creates reality. Some people remember who and what they are better than others. In that belief momentum they don’t harbor much resistance. So when offered a slot in a trial, they bring not only their bodily symptoms, they also bring an eagerness and positive expectation the treatment will work for them.
Even though they get the “sugar pill” (the placebo), they manifest results consistent with those who get actual trial treatments. Science calls this the placebo effect.
From a Positively Focused perspective, such results show the power of mind over matter. In other words, people’s expectation – their belief – creates their experience.
Little do people realize our bodies maintain their integrity due to beliefs we hold at the core of who and what they are. These beliefs perpetuate all bodily functions keeping the body in a state of well being. All that well being happens automatically as a result.
But when a person entertains beliefs inconsistent with that core belief system, they introduce resistance. Such resistance disrupts natural flows. Such disruptions turn that well being into dis-ease. Dis-ease first feels like negative thought. Then negative emotion. If left unchecked, a physical reality consistent with said thoughts must show up.
That’s what medical symptoms are.
Back to the client
That’s why my client experienced what she experienced.
Her persistent chronic negative belief momentum, combined with other unwanted, yet present, persistent beliefs created her symptoms. Those other beliefs said “what’s happening in my body must be something grave. Something only something outside of me can fix.”
Her Positively Focused practice contributed too. As she increased her joy, her body projection began adjusting to new beliefs. It also began re-energizing internal connections perhaps neglected through decades.
I encouraged a continued Positively Focused approach, which she took under advisement. But most of her early action involved seeking an external solution. Until, as I said, doctors wanted her on medicine for the rest of her life.
And while she still pursues an external solution, as predicted, her symptoms are subsiding. I know it to be because she’s allowing more of her natural well being to re-emerge. While simultaneously soothing negative beliefs she’s held literally for decades.
Finding that relief prompted a text message in which the client expressed appreciation as her more normal states of being returned:
Holding the space for others
I don’t see clients in order to receive such praise. I see clients for the joy I feel in my own amplification of my positive focus. A nice byproduct comes from how my clients’ lives shape to their version of my experience.
Joy stemming from positive focus knows no peer. That’s because the origin of all physical matter knows no other Source than Source, that state of All That Is, that Peerless Pure Positive Life Energy. And since we all emerge from that origin, we each can express all that All That Is in our lives. That’s the Charmed Life.
I love holding space for clients as they work through beliefs inconsistent with who they are. My own version of soothing inconsistent beliefs offers hope for others. I continue soothing my inconsistent beliefs even today. In doing that, I know what the path looks like. So I hold the space in a stable knowing most don’t have. Another client recently spoke to this:
Standing in that stability, recognizing we create all we experience, I remain certain while facing things clients fear. That certainty is what clients feel when they meet with me.
All of us come into the world knowing a peerless opportunity of joyful expansion awaits. That’s why we decided to come. But that opportunity only becomes a foregone conclusion when one stands in positive focus. The same focus which animates All That Is.
It’s that focus that creates results which know nothing better.
Some people scoff at the idea that beliefs create life experience. Positively Focused clients don’t scoff though. Because in a very short time, sometimes immediately, clients discover what they think about, happens.
Once they see evidence, clients want results consistent with what they want. They start small usually. While going after little things – feeling better about where they are in life, for example – other things happen too. These other things surprise and delight the client. Then they get hopeful.
Maybe, just maybe, they think, life is on their side. Maybe life can be fun, easy and filled with self-fulfilling desires. The more they see things happening consistent with what they want, hope and optimism return.
Remember those? Those feelings children live in and feel about life? Well, in that hopefulness and optimism, clients ease into lives they once knew were possible. Lives filled with joy and optimism, hopefulness and eager anticipation. And lives filled with everything they want too.
They also realize they deserve that life. And the Universe helps them get it. That and a lot more.
In time – and the length is different for each client – clients come to sessions to revel in hopefulness and optimism, not fix problems. From there, sessions get really fun. Because problems fix themselves. Like this client describes:
It’s not counseling or therapy
Since no upper limit exists about what someone can get or how good they feel, sessions always contain moments where greater fine tuning happens. But most sessions involve sharing stories – real life examples – where desires fulfill themselves. Clients marvel, surprised that life gets better and better and better all on its own, no matter how good it already is.
It’s no wonder clients keep coming back. Why wouldn’t they?
Where else in life can one find unconditional acceptance and encouragement for everything they want? Does anyplace else exist where a person comes in feeling good, anticipating a wonderful hour, then leaves consistently feeling even better, having amplified their feeling good?
Where else in life can a person learn how to see their life giving them everything they want? Then return to their life and see more of that with their own two eyes?
Don’t bother. The answer is very few other places.
Some ask “is what you do therapy?”
No. This isn’t therapy. It isn’t counseling. We don’t teach people to say things like “You know, when you do this, it makes me feel X and I would like you to do it differently because I don’t feel good when you do that.”
That’s total disempowerment.
We don’t take clients back into their childhoods, try to unpack “traumas” or fix things “broken” about them. That’s unnecessary and mostly irrelevant.
Clients also don’t heal anything or deal with “trauma”. Because nothing needs healing and traumas are all made up (if that triggers you, you might want to go see a therapist).
We don’t deal in “traumas” at Positively Focused. In session, clients deal with creating reality. We show clients how to create a reality where traumas don’t exist. Even if they once existed!
Life is spiritual made physical
The biggest difference between what we do and counseling or therapy is, we come from a knowing the medical and mental health spaces rarely acknowledge, let alone know exists. That knowing says, people are eternal beings here to create the world of their choosing. They enjoy access to the entire power of the Universe, because that’s what they are. Accessing that power they resume control of their lives, which feels, eventually, like ongoing ecstasy. That’s the Charmed Life I talk about in this blog every week.
We show them how that power works, then how to leverage it to create dreams into reality. Dreams are as real as physical matter. We show clients how to make dreams physical. Just a few simple fundamentals makes it work. From there life is fun. Just like the client above described.
What we do works for anyone. But some won’t find it fits their world view. It doesn’t fit because their world view makes it that way. We know a lot of people live life from such world views.
That’s why those people struggle on mood stabilizers and anti-anxiety medication. Guilt and shame are realities for them. They worry about what others think about them. They feel insecure at work.
But none of these need be part of life.
Great results pop out of thoughts aligned with what one wants. A few basic fundamentals makes that so. It’s so consistent, clients wonder why they didn’t know them to start.
But they did know them. They just forgot them. Maybe you did too.
I’ve added yet another running series “Q/A” to my blog. It’s…well…about answering questions I get through the internets and sharing those answers with others as they may help others feel inspired and more connected to the God they are.
Question: Alright well if you say hard work is not the key to success then what is? Growing up we’ve always heard that you can get anything you want, you just have to be willing to work hard for it. But if hard work really isn’t the key to success then what is? I really like your approach and any feedback on this would be much appreciated.
That you’re asking them shows your openness to their answers. That’s more than half of what it takes to get to the answer. So good for you for asking.
You’re right. So many parents teach us that working hard is the key. Heck, all society tells us that: our teachers, our politicians, TV and movies, music…virtually everything in the physical world echoes this sentiment. Who am I to contradict it?
I’m someone who knows better.
Many reasons explain why nearly all society enforces this idea. Before answering your question, it’s important knowing some of these reasons.
Most have no idea
One, the reason why so many in our society, including our parents, parrot this bad advice is because that’s what they’ve been told.
Think about it: nearly everyone who succeeds claims “hard work” as their key. What most don’t realize is, they think that because they’ve been told that. They fall back on that because, really, they can’t explain their success, feel guilty or insecure about it and use this ubiquitous answer. Not because it IS the answer, but because so many people believe it. And in parroting it they defend themselves when others claim they don’t deserve success they created.
Which is why so many, when they claim their success comes from their own hard work, they make that claim often stridently or angrily. Have you notice that?
But notice those who are really successful, extraordinarily successful. Those people won’t attribute success to “hard work”. The ones who own their success and aren’t ashamed or embarrassed by it, the ones who don’t listen to those who claim they don’t deserve their success, they attribute it to “luck” or “fortune”.
This gets closer to the truth. They have no idea how they did it. They know it wasn’t their “hard work”. After all, many of them will acknowledge they didn’t actually work very hard.
But they don’t know what the key was either. That’s why they give luck, God, or fortune credit. Not themselves.
The answer is play
The key is the same thing that had you enjoy your early youth. It’s a care-free-ness, it’s a playfulness, a joyfulness, a rambunctious self-knowing. This is borne of knowing you’re god in human form (as I put it) or, in other words, living in “grace” “deservedness” and “worthiness”.
As a very young child this is obvious. But as people “grow up”, they trade this knowing (often by necessity) in favor of parents’ bogus ideas of what it takes. I did this for many years.
Thankfully, I came to my senses. 😂
I’m not Christian, yet it must be acknowledged that Jesus was onto something when he said (something like) to enter Heaven’s Kingdom, you must become as a child. “Heaven’s kingdom” is a metaphor for “success” (however you define it).
So the answer to the question is, become like you were. Know your clarity, your self-love, your blessedness, your worthiness. The vast majority of humans don’t believe they’re worthy. Or they think they lost it. And they don’t know how to get it back.
Knowing your worthiness works because when you know your worthiness you discover the Universe constantly gives you whatever you focus on as a desire. You realize it’s not your job to make things happen. Rather it’s your job to bask in your blessedness…just like birds, bees and flowers…and allow the Universe to shower you with your deserved blessings as it does for birds, bees and flowers.
Doing that amplifies your knowing that you’re blessed. For how could you not believe you’re blessed when you witness everything you want coming easily to you?
You have one job
But since you’re not a bird, bee or flower, it’s a bit more complicated than that. You must also be open to hearing signals coming from your deeper knowing that guide you in action towards that which you want.
Follow those guides and, in time, you’ll gradually come into all you desire. That’s your one and only job.
For following these guides will ALWAYS feel like fun, excitement, passion, joy…and this is why that second group of people, the really successful, will acknowledge they didn’t work hard. Because it didn’t feel like “hard work”.
It was fun, a blast, a head trip, a big party, the time of their lives….in other words, they followed their inner knowing.
The challenge is, most people shut down the connection through which “inner knowing” can be “heard”. I show people how to reopen that connection.
It’s extremely simple
So that’s the key: knowing you’re blessed. When you know that, you see reality differently. When you see it differently, you see everything you want happening on your behalf. Not “believing” that’s what’s happening, but actually seeing it happening.
Then hard work isn’t necessary. Just joyful being. That’s what everyone knew life would be like when they chose to be here.
I write every week about what opening that connection looks like, how to practically implement what I’ve described as the key: how to find the lock, insert the key, turn it and unlock the door leading to the effortless having of the Charmed Life.
It’s extremely simple. Far more simple than what our world tells us.
So you know what you want. You know now you can have it without hard work. I suggest you test it out and see what happens. I promise you, you’ll be amazed, delighted and, eventually, ecstatic at how great life gets. Just as I feel delight and amazement at how easily this response rolled through my fingers! What fun!
Consciousness shapes itself into a multitude of physical expressions representing All That Is across all probabilities past, present and future. Each expression lives and flows with life force. As such, it is intelligent, aware and interacts with the is-ness of All That Is thereby creating more of that.
This 7-minute Positively Focused short film shares secrets of the Universe as told through the consciousness of a dilapidated car wash. We expect you’ll find joy and inspiration in this story.
The best kept secrets lie right before us, ripe for the plucking, like a fat juicy sun-ripened peach. Not knowing these secrets leaves one with the pit. But for the Positively Focused, the juicy life is theirs for the living.
The best kept secret is we are god in human form, creating our lives through that which we tell ourselves. Our outsides spring from our insides in a constant stream of delightful feedback. Through that feedback we know ourselves, love ourselves, and our creation as ourselves because they literally are ourselves.
I like knowing I create my reality. No one else does. Seeing what I think, what I thought, what I believe become my experience gives me important insights.
Reality holds the clues
For one, it shows me how important my thoughts and beliefs are. For what I think, happens. The more intensive my thought, the more quickly that thought becomes a real thing. But I must distinguish “intensity” from “trying”. They aren’t the same. In fact they’re complete opposites.
Two, it shows me I’m responsible for my life. No one else. I prefer it that way. Knowing that creates in me massive amounts of empowerment. For if I’m the only one who creates my reality, then nothing I don’t want in my life can get in there. Refining my thoughts and beliefs proves this true: hardly any unwanted things happen now and everything I want fills my days and nights.
But when an errant unwanted thing does happen, I use it as a springboard. I find in it that which is wanted, focus on that and in doing so I, as the Buddhists say, “turn poison into medicine”.
I soothe unwanted beliefs creating the unwanted thing. And replace that with wanted beliefs. Then these new beliefs not only create realities consistent with them, as did old unwanted ones, they also feel great to think.
Three, it reminds me my best interest lies in careful consideration of what I allow into my belief constellation. For what goes in there becomes my “out here.” That’s great general wisdom. In other words, what I allow in my head eventually becomes what I experience.
Ancient wisdom embraced
The ancients nailed timeless wisdom comprising what I know. The ouroboros, a serpent eating its tail, illustrates this age-old knowing. I find my life proving this over and over.
The fun part of it is, the proof I create consists of all good things. For one, I eliminate things unwanted. Two, I replace them with wanted things. Three, doing that life gets better and better. I feel better too.
And as all that happens in reality, I also broaden my perception and experience of the place from which all reality comes: the eternal now that is nonphysical.
In this way, I get the best of all worlds. I love knowing what I know. I also love showing others how their lives can become Charmed Lives just by changing how one thinks, what one lets into their head.
The best kept secrets lie right in front of our faces. I love knowing our insides become out outsides. Because in knowing that, great power awaits. The power to create reality as gods.
Everyone who dies, and that’s pretty much everyone, chooses their death, thereby making every death a suicide.
That might evoke knee-jerk denials, but such rebuttals don’t make it any less so.
Thoughts about death weigh people down so much, they prefer ignoring the inevitable. What one thinks about death shapes one’s life. Since nearly everyone tries ignoring it, it also regulates how much other people or circumstances restrict one’s free will. For death’s power, successfully manipulated, evokes unconscious behaviors from people. Even self-detructive behavior.
Such behaviors — especially triggered by fear of death, but all other experiences too — elevate or stamp out moment-by-moment joy life offers. Some reactions fill life with stress, anxiety, anger, taking sides and more. In such states one must defend one’s self or their beliefs. Others’ beliefs become enemies.
People then become “evil”, “wrong”, or simply “bad”. Ideas too. Push against these long enough and, well, life, as the saying goes, becomes “…a bitch, then you die.”
Joy is life, Life is joy.
Some reactions enhance life. Certain reactions after sex with a loved one (or by one’s self), after a meal, while watching a sunset or a great show like AppleTVs “Schmigadoon!” rouse feelings which, focused upon, remind us life and joy exist synonymously.
Seen this way, joy IS life. Have some Extreee! 😂
Look around though. You’ll see belief-induced reactions, especially in societies where people need money, create myriad downward spirals. Spirals reminding us — as did Belinda Carlisle — that heaven is a place on earth. But so is Hell. Both exist and thrive in our beliefs.
Said spirals turn on forces which inevitably restore balance such forces maintain through their existence. Carbon emission triggered weather patterns typify said maintenance actions. Wilder weather wreaking havoc today doesn’t indicate impending doom. Nor does social havoc and upheaval. Both foretell restored balance.
Witness, for example, what happened in Cape Town, South Africa almost five years ago. In 2017, the city’s water supplies dwindled severely. Officials warned citizens municipal water facilities would shut down for good. A drought at the time exacerbated conditions. That meant potentially very long lines of people waiting for daily water rations. This marked the first time in the world a major municipality risked running completely out of water.
The people responded with extreme water conversation behaviors. Behaviors which cut water consumption by more than half! City leaders postponed their “Day Zero”, the day the city expected to declare itself out of water, by many months.
As if nature monitored the situation, heavy rains followed. Reservoir levels returned to 95 percent full by 2018.
Of course, the story contains far more complexity. But the point is, humans respond to nature’s balancing signals. Yes, sometimes we take it to the very brink. So far though, humanity trends towards avoiding going over them.
Yet, so many react to nature’s signals pessimistically, alarmingly, or defensively. That leaves many hopeless, helpless and in fear, which leads to fatalism, then to a resigned acceptance of The End. And reluctance towards behavior change.
After all, what’s the use in changing behavior when I believe we’re fucked?
Nature’s signals then grow stronger — what’s resisted indeed persists and interpreting good news climate change brings is to resist nature’s signal. But nature’s will for balance overcomes persistent negative focus and fear-induced paralysis. Then…¡Voila! Balanced restored.
All is of The Light. All of it.
Which is why I encourage BEING over reacting. In being, life gets eminently more fun. Life emerges from within my being, subject to my deliberate focus. That which I want to see, I’ll see when I bring sufficient, non-resistant desire (Positive Being or Positively Focused) to fore. Enemies or disagreements no longer define my identity, nor threaten me because they can’t find me. Nature’s signals, to me, look like harbingers of greatness, not downfall.
For everything, against nothing, I find joy constantly. In joy I AM The Light. And there, I possess more leverage than millions paralyzed in fatalism, hopelessness, fear and insecurity.
Witness, for example, Copiosis. Throughout eight years, a team assembled around me of enormously passionate, gifted people committed to what I created back in 2013. We’re poised to evolve humanity out of capitalism. Far from a better mousetrap, Copiosis changes the way we think about mice.
Copiosis came from The Light. As I do.
In The Light, others’ ideas sway me no longer. Especially doom and gloom messaging. Insecurity, fear, hopelessness and powerlessness become vapor in The Light that is my eternal identity, What I Be, allowed.
I am: The Light, Lightness, Open, Knowing, Sure, Certain. Especially about death and its gifts. One of which comes when one discovers one’s invincible immortality.
People make pawns of the insecure, helpless, hopeless, desperate and paralyzed. The insecure, helpless, hopeless and desperate willingly amplify propaganda, propaganda often designed to move their money into pockets of those who made them pawns. And so people who make pawns get rich and (for a time, somewhat) powerful.
Bully for them!
Prick or not to prick?
I got the Pfizer vaccine because my passions soon require international travel. My vaccination status allows maximum travel flexibility and travel flexibility facilitates my unfolding path. Especially around Copiosis. I know a vaccine doesn’t choose when I choose to move on from physical existence. Nor can it alter my physical constitution. Neither can viruses. I KNOW, am SURE, and CERTAIN I stand in The Light, which I AM.
There I alter my reality. Including the intimate creation my body represents. And I create all alterations though Being The Light.
When I shared my Vax status on social media, I did so as a message clarifying the gorgeous paradox life offers alongside its joy: I know the value and downsides governments offer. I already declared them no longer necessary. I made that declaration while standing invulnerable. While allowing through me Copiosis.
So when friends ask why I took the vaccine being who and what I am, I offer hope. Hope in the form of responses like these. You are eternal, I tell them. You are The Light.
For now, government exists and so it is right and good. All that exists is good. And, all that exists will soon give way to something better. It always does. Capitalism, communism, socialism and all other governments included.
So says The Light.
Where do you stand?
You are The Light when standing in beliefs which make you so. And The Light always calls forth more and better.
No one can exist outside their beliefs though. But one can create any belief about anything and that thing becomes true. Only for that person though.
Subscribe to another’s beliefs, they’ll become your own. Just as those who subscribe to your beliefs, make yours theirs. So many children go astray adopting bogus beliefs from parents…
We must therefore choose wisely as adults. Most important of all choices are those we make about what we put in our heads. What we put in our bodies, including medicines, matters comparatively little. Not at all, actually.
Few choose while unquestionably sure about death. But deliberate choosing allows rediscovering what many believe false, even though it is What Is So.
The immutable fact of our immortality. Stand in that and discover every death a suicide because every person, from their immortal vantage chooses circumstances of their birth as well as their death.
A wise one said: “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Climate change, vaccines, pandemics, war…they all offer choice. Choice in thought.
I love working with clients committed enough to earnestly pursue their Positive Focus. When they do, freedom and joy show up. In a recent, fabulous session, Lisa shares her experience thus far, confirming the work’s effectiveness.
We all exist as God in human form. What’s cool about that shows up in abundance when disbelief, but a desire to believe, turns into belief.
But when belief turns to knowing, knowing borne of experience, then things really get interesting.
For when that happens, then the God in the human form, starts shining. From there, it only gets better and better. More joy, more fun, more desires accomplished with no effort. But mostly: more joy.
After all, we all chose this experience knowing it offered wondrous opportunity. Expansion, freedom, joy and focus. We came here for that. Manifestations just happen as natural byproducts of expansion, freedom joy and focus.
Life gets great when one gets Positively Focused as Lisa attests here.
Meaningful life happens when one chooses their life as meaningful. Every life represents meaningfulness, but when negative beliefs, resistance, anger and frustration dominate, finding one’s meaning can’t happen.
All That Is wants us all filled with ecstasy, joy and appreciation for life, for us. Negative experiences pile on the one who sees life negatively because All That Is uses such experiences. Such experiences show the negative person they can choose a better way. One consistent with what their Broader Perspective knows.
Life can be fun
Every Broader Perspective knows life can be fun. But that fun exists as an option. People come with free will built in. Everyone stands in freedom so profound, each person can choose shackles inherent in disbelief, anger, fear, insecurity and “traumas”.
In time, everyone releases such shackles. For many, that happens at the death moment. Sleep does it too. Most don’t realize it, but waking from sleep feels so great because a person experienced hours in sleep’s nonresistant state.
Death does the same thing.
But one needn’t die then experience joy, freedom and appreciation Broader Perspective knows life offers. Life features those things in abundance for those willing to put a little focus into seeing life as their Broader Perspective sees it.
From there, life’s automatic processes take over. Before long, one finds themselves in perpetual bliss. Just like they knew they would, when deciding living in a body would be a wonderful experience.
Proof waits for your discovery. You discover it first through thoughts you think. Then it shows itself to you constantly, as Lisa here confirms.
This morning probably was the best result I received so far from my Positively Focused practice. It’s an extraordinary result showing how Universe delights the one who finds alignment with their better, happy place.
I woke this morning feeling joy so deep, I didn’t want to get out of bed. I felt at one with All That Is, and that feeling left me in peace, wherein all was right with everything. And in that, I felt struck in All That Is’ beauty, grace and love.
But when someone experiences such deep and profound spiritual experiences, Universe inspires movement because such movement leads to more and better experiences. Experiences confirming that blessed universal connection.
That’s exactly what happened next.
Joy and fun to come
I got an impulse to go for a walk. The impulse came with a sense of urgency, like I mustn’t ignore it. So I got up, did my morning routine and headed out the door.
A few weeks ago I wrote about an amazing experience had in a nearby park. It involved seeing a raptor in the trees with feathers dancing through the air like snow fall. Then a guy walked by who amplified that wonderful experience with a story of his own.
The park where this happened was where my inspiration directed me this morning. As I walked I had no idea what lie ahead. I only knew how good I felt and how wonderful the day unfolded up to now, even though it was only 7:30 in the morning.
The park was mine. No one else walked the walking paths, played in the grassy expanses, walked among the roses, or sat in the pavilion. My favorite music played in my headphones while the sun shone from my right, its warmth heating the day.
Halfway through the park, despite my headphones, I heard a sound I hadn’t heard before. It was a kind of screech. Even though my headphones muffled it, the sound caught my attention. So much so I made a bee-line straight to where I thought it originated.
The compulsion to follow that sound was so strong, I felt kind of odd, like I wasn’t in charge of my movements. It drew me to a spot in the park I rarely frequent.
That’s when it happened
I heard the sound again, then looked into the trees while turning off my music. The draw of this impulse felt extreme as it pulled me right underneath a medium-sized tree. That impulse drew my vision to the lower-most branch, which swung very low from the tree’s trunk.
There, perched on the branch, was an accipiter known as a Goshawk. I didn’t know the word “accipiter” in that moment. Nor did I know the Bird of Prey as a Goshawk. I thought is was a Sharp-Shinned Hawk or perhaps a falcon. Either way, the sight stunned me.
Little did I know, this was just the beginning.
Accipiters are Birds of Prey specifically evolved for successful life in dense forests. These birds are slender with short, broad, rounded wings and a long tail which helps them maneuver in tight areas such as forests. Accipiters have long legs and long, sharp talons used to kill their prey, and a sharp, hooked bill used in feeding. They often ambush their prey, mainly small birds and mammals, capturing them after a short chase. They are commonly found in wooded or shrubby areas.
I’ve always adored Birds of Prey, specifically Red Tailed Hawks and Sparrowhawks. Since moving to Oregon, however, my love of raptors expanded. I also love seeing Bald Eagles and Osprey, which populate Oregon’s scenic waterways.
But I never expected to see such birds in Portland’s city parks. This was astounding!
Watching this bird on the branch, I felt awe. But what happened next left me in stunned.
It was good, but got better
While filming the video above, the hawk suddenly disappeared from view. I stopped shooting to find it, but saw it nowhere in trees around me. That’s when my instinct took over, turned my head left and downward.
The hawk landed on the ground just feet from my…feet! Here’s a video of me in rapturous joy as I caught the moment on video:
This is incredible, I thought! Understanding how amazing this moment was requires understanding a little about Northwestern Goshawks.
Of the three U.S. and Canadian hawks known as accipiters, the Goshawk is by far the most impressive. As far as accipiters are concerned, they are the largest and most aggressive. Goshawks are favored for falconry the world over. According to state write-ups, Oregon offers limited permits for taking Goshawks for falconry purposes. I met someone with such a permit once. His specimen is exquisite even though I don’t think it’s a Goshawk. I mean, must look at this photo I took!
What impressed me most about Goshawks, and my seeing one specifically, is this: It is an uncommon to fairly common bird in Oregon. But they’re usually found in wilderness areas ranging between 1,900 – 6,100 foot elevations along the Cascade, Blue, and Klamath mountains. Even so, here I was face-to-face….or foot-to-foot with one in a city park!
Then I heard yet another screech, again, behind me. When I turned around, I stood literally astounded. For there in front of me were four hawks. Three of them stood on the ground, the fourth on a brach above the others. What were they doing? Playing with sticks!
They threw sticks, tossed seed pods and even stepped on each other’s tails! Never had I seen such playfulness in Birds of Prey. I felt absolutely blessed seeing this display, again, in a city park.
It turned out I was amidst an entire family of hawks. They played and ate from the same kill. They even chased crow and squirrel in front of me. Two even played with each other on a nearby car rooftop.
Joyful nature communion
For the next two hours I watched as these hawks put themselves on display for me. Once, one hawk perched on a tree, looked at me. Then, with no notice, it flew straight at me, swooping over my head close enough for me to touch. I felt I had gone to hawk heaven!
After filming, I noticed bird and squirrel carcasses in this area, particularly under the tree where one of the hawks fed. Apparently, they had been here some time. But my Broader Perspective coordinated this moment, these two blissful hours, for me to commune with these natural, graceful predators.
I tell my clients all the time that when one develops a Positively Focused perspective such that they chronically live in a state of alignment to the beauty of life, nature becomes one’s deliberate partner. It reveals to the Positively Focused its “secrets”. Animals people rarely, if ever, see come out and play, putting themselves on display for one who takes time to tune themselves back to their natural knowing.
I’ve seen coyote families, with pups playing alongside city sloughs, minxes carrying their prey along bike paths, owls flying in broad daylight and at night, perched so close to me I could touch them if I wanted.
Forgotten desires fulfilled
I know when these experiences come, they come solely for my joyful consumption. They also validate my Positively Focused practice as well as indicate that I stand aligned, not only to nature, but to the unfolding, natural fulfillment of all my desires.
I also tell my clients about the nature of “desire” itself. I know many desires I have I don’t remember asking for. But my Broader Perspective remembers them all. When I tune to my Broader Perspective knowing, it begins leading me to all my desires. Not just ones I consciously want, but those I’ve forgotten.
That’s what makes living life so joyous when Positively Focused. I didn’t realize experiencing something like a family of uncommon Birds of Prey up close and personal was something I asked for. Yet here it was delivered in a way I could savor for two whole hours!
Imagine other desires I asked for, cued up by my Broader Perspective and ready when I am to experience. It truly is the Charmed Life I write about. The Charmed Life includes the fulfillment of ALL desires. Not just those a person knows they want, but ones they don’t remember asking for.
My experience today with these hawks filled me with such joy, I am working on a short film about the experience. It’s amazing I got so much video footage, enough for a film I can share. And in the sharing I’ll amplify my own joy, which also amplifies my connection to All That Is.
I write that I am amazed and I am. But I also know what happened is just what happens when I stand at the center of my happy place, where the Universe shows me how blessed I am. How blessed we all are.
I love positive derangement. Feeling so good, experiencing life so positively that people label you “crazy”, feels wonderful. The sweet spot of Positively Focused is that perspective. From there, the extraordinary shows itself nearly all the time.
This morning proves that assertion in abundance. It looks like coincidence to the uninitiated eye. But to the Positively Focused, what happened happened because that’s what happens when a person finds their grace and worthiness.
In other words, when a person finds they stand at the center of the Universe. There, life’s an adventure. I love sharing this story. I know it offers inspiration for others. That’s why I started this blog: to inspire others into a new reality. One where they get everything they want, the life I call a Charmed Life.
A wonderful day awaited
I woke up this morning super positive. Amazing dreams, an amazing “meditation” session, and an eagerness about the day fueled my rising. As usual when I wake these days, my higher knowing, my Broader Perspective, serves me a list of things it knows will inspire me.
That list included going grocery shopping. I planned a Safeway trip today, Friday, followed by a Trader Joe’s trip Saturday. But my my Broader Perspective said do both today.
I follow such guidance more quickly and often these days. Because I know following such guidance always leads to extraordinary experiences. I write about these every week in this blog.
I don’t have a car. Instead I get around by foot or my bike. A bike ride in the cool morning air this morning sounded great. By the afternoon, Portlanders expected temperatures in the low hundreds, so I felt eager about getting these trips in early.
Safeway was easy and fun. I enjoyed a nice chat with Tammy, the checkout person who usually rings my groceries. While checking out my groceries, I shared my excitement over how much food I got for so little money, thanks to Safeway’s loyalty program. Tammy agreed laughing. I’m sure she though me crazy.
Then I rode home with my panniers full of wonderful food. When it was all either in the fridge or pantry, I realized, I forgot toilet paper I bought. Rather than disappointment about that, I felt excitement about another ride to Safeway. That’s how much I like riding my bike. 😊
Getting the toilet paper happened quick. After putting it away, I prepared for my TJ run. Little did I know, while I prepared, the day had ready awesome delights prepared.
Good and bad here, now
It was a lovely ride to TJs. Before leaving home, I sat a few moments. In those moments I savored how good I felt, how wonderful it is owning the bike I own, how awesome it is living where I live and how much fun the ride to TJs would be.
I took an alternative path just to amplify the fun. Nearly everyone I passed greeted me with a smile. Cars stopped on main streets so I could cross. A young woman walking her dog sported a lovely hat and I told her so. She smiled in return. Fellow bike riders greeted me as I passed.
Everything went in a way indicating I had aligned with all that is good. My Broader Perspective and the Universe showed me all the way to TJs evidence of my alignment.
As Trader Joe’s approached, I saw a homeless person. Now in the past, when I ride by a homeless person on the way to Trader Joe’s, I have, again, in the past, worried about him going into my bike bags while I shop. So I lock my bike bags to my bike. I also leave nothing valuable in them.
This time, when I saw the homeless person, I imagined the homeless person trying to take my bags. Then he did some sort of vandalism because he couldn’t get them off my bike.
Slight insecurity accompanied that imagined scenario. That’s when I caught myself. Emotions tell me something important, I know. What was I doing? Creating a reality I didn’t want. That’s what my emotions told me. So I dropped that imagined scenario as quickly as I could. My positive feelings returned and, for a few moments that imagined scenario disappeared.
It would return a bit later. Thankfully, not in as big a manifestation as it could have!
“Good” and “bad” exist in every universal particle, in every scenario, in every moment. I know how I focus shapes how much of each fills my experiences. That’s why I practice a positive focus. It maximizes the former and excludes all of the latter.
Let the fun…continue?
Leaving that scenario behind, I locked my bike, went into the store, followed my intuition and got everything I wanted in about 10 minutes. I checked out and while doing so the wonderful checker greeted me with a smile and a nice little conversation.
Then, when I walked out the door I looked towards my bike. My attention went right to my rear tire. It was flat as a pancake!
For a brief second, that scenario I thought before returned. Did some homeless guy slash my tire? Slowly, I approached my bike. Again, I dropped that scenario. After all, no matter how it happened, it happened. My bike had a flat. Brooding about it wouldn’t fix my tire!
After loading the pannier with what I bought, I put them aside, then detached the tire, and opened my accessories bag. That’s when I noticed my repair kit was missing! The patch kit was there, but other tools I needed weren’t. I couldn’t repair the flat!
At that point, I stopped myself, took a breath and assessed my situation. This wasn’t what it looked like. Something brewed here, ready to be enjoyed. I didn’t know what though. Still, I know this flat wasn’t random or an accident.
So instead of jumping into action, I took a moment and reframed the situation.
“Boy, something really great is going to happen because of this,” I thought to myself. “This is going to be fun!” And I meant it!
Just then, another biker passed by riding an electric bike. Two people passed after that. Meanwhile I started putting my bike back together, figuring I would have to push my bike to a repair shop, call a Lyft or an Uber.
Bring on the wonder!
Minutes later, that electric bike rider returned. He asked me if everything was OK. I explained what happened, that I planned a walk to a repair shop. He mentioned The Bike Gallery, a major bike chain here in Portland.
Under his breath he said that if I took my bike there, and knocked on the door, the staff would let me in and fix my bike.
“I actually work there,” he added in an even lower tone.
Right then, I knew something amazing had come together. My spidey sense told me this was the Universe unfolding a continuous stream of extremely positive outcomes in response to my chronic positive focus. That stream started from my dreams. And with this flat, that stream continued. Here’s what happened next:
The guy left, I got my bike back together, then started walking from 43rd Ave. to the Bike Gallery located on 53rd Ave. I enjoyed the walk. It was good exercise. I enjoyed the increasing heat on my face and body while walking. A light sweat started on my skin, which evaporated in the light, heating breeze, cooling me in the process. The weight of my panniers full of food pushed down on the flat. That made it easy to push my bike even with no air in the tire.
Two-thirds of the way to the Bike Gallery, I looked up the street and saw a biker who looked like the same guy who helped me at Trader Joe’s. When he saw me he turned my way. It was the guy.
“You walk fast,” He said then pointed to the pannier latched to his bike. A huge manual air pump extended out of its open top. “I packed some repair tools and was coming back to rescue you,” He added. “I’ll meet you back at the store.”
The joy keeps coming
He greeted me when I arrived, then ushered me to the maintenance department. There he took my bike, disassembled it, took apart the flat tire and showed me what the problem was: the rim tape slipped causing the innertube to dip into one of the spoke dimples. That, combined with the pressure of the air in the tube, cut the tube open.
“You would not have been able to repair that.” He said. “And even if you tried with a new tube, that tube probably would’ve gotten punctured too.”
Obviously, my Broader Perspective, the Universe and All That Is orchestrated this uncommon, uncanny flat tire situation. Responding the way I did, my blessed path unfolded, opening doors to a cavalcade of wonderful outcomes.
I could have got angry about the flat, railed at the sucky timing, or felt sorry for myself. Doing that would have opened different circumstances. Imagine, were I pissed, the guy who helped me may not have felt comfortable approaching me. Or maybe in my frustration I might have said something rude.
But by reframing the situation and seeing it as an adventure, the whole situation unfolded in this wonderful way. I aligned myself with those positive outcomes, which continued even while this guy repaired my tire.
While he repaired it, I noticed another bike repair guy grinning ear-to-ear while fiddling with the cash register. I felt inspired to compliment him, so I did.
“You’re having a great time,” I said. “I can tell by your smile.”
“I love what I do,” he said. “Bikes are the best.”
I agreed while noticing his name, Tim, on his name tag. While my bike got fixed, Tim and I enjoyed a great conversation. He worked at the Bike Gallery for many years and has been working on bikes all his life. This store was short-staffed, so his manager at the store where he usually works dispatched him here to help out. Imagine that! Another synchronicity!
Had that not happened, we wouldn’t have enjoyed what happened next.
The full monty brought to life
Tim said he’s lived in Portland all his life, repaired bikes all his life and feels he’s living his dream. Thus the smile. He lives in a place called Hillsboro, here in Oregon. His family lives in other local cities called Portland, Forest Grove and Salem.
He and I also talked about bicycle motocross, a passion of his, about my heroes from my bicycle motocross days whenI was a child. I loved watching real motocross while growing up in Southern California too. I told Tim that and Tim told me a great story where he met one of my number one heroes of that time. Tim and I both got more excited the more we talked. Did I say it was a great conversation?
Meanwhile the guy who rescued me, whose name was Randall, replaced the original fabric rim tape with an upgraded rubber version, put the bike back together, then rolled it over to me.
“How much do I owe you?” I asked.
“Nothing,” he said. “Enjoy the rest of your day.”
That’s when I really knew this flat tire offered tremendous opportunity, which I stepped into by framing it as a positive adventure instead of a mishap. That opened the door to this awesome experience.
Think about it. The flat itself was uncommon. I couldn’t have repaired it had I tried. The universe didn’t want me too. It and my Broader Perspective wanted me to witness how much they love me by orchestrating all that unfolded. So cool!
By way of explanation, I told Randall about the Positively Focused blog and how I write about these kinds of wonderful synchronicities that happen in my life all the time. Then I asked if I could take his picture. He said yes.
This is Randall and I:
Randall lives in Woodstock and rides his electric bike to The Bike Gallery every day unless work demands something different.
Something different and delightful always awaits the Positively Focused person. Nothing happens by accident. Everything happens on purpose. Being Positively Focused brings that purpose into focus. The purpose everything means to give us all is joyful recognition that the Universe is always on our side.
But if one doesn’t line up with that love, that joyful acknowledgment of this joyful purpose, they get struggle, pain, disappointment and more.
I prefer joy, love and happy results. So I do everything I can to foster and amplify those results. It’s easy, once I got the hang of it. As a result of that, even an unfixable bike flat serves up a great big heaping pile of joyful experience.
