The Amazing, Good Life Lesson Of Donald Trump

By The White House – Official White House Facebook page, Public Domain

TLDR: The author claims Donald Trump’s life epitomizes the power of Law of Attraction. They show how by “telling it like he wants it” Trump created a life of his own design. Yet, these days, the author claims, Trump is creating a reality he doesn’t want by focusing on precisely that, thereby proving a basic principle of Law of Attraction

This story is neither a critique or a praise piece for the former president and 34-count felon. Instead, it’s an examination of how the Positively Focused practice, applied to his life, proves itself.

For despite all his lies and machiavellian actions, for the most part, Donald Trump has gotten what he wanted. I attribute that to his willingness to ignore others’ opinions. In other words, Trump achieved much of what he has over his life because he focused. And in focusing, he got what he’s wanted. Including a stint as POTUS.

Unfortunately, though, the moment Trump went into politics, he started shooting himself in the vibrational foot, which explains his current set of judicial predicaments. Judicial predicaments are not new for Trump. But this new batch is much more detrimental.

Let’s look at how Trump used what we talk about in the Positively Focused Practice to literally change the trajectory of his life for the better…then for the worse.

Focusing on what he wants

Despite many run-ins with the legal system, Trump has always told it like he wants it to be. And, when contradicted by others, or the facts, he continued sticking to his story. As a result, Trump enjoys tremendous momentum in his focus. Yes, practically thinking, many of his hustles, deals, projects, whatever you want to call them, may seem nefarious. But it’s hard to deny that the man has a way with getting what he wants. Especially when it comes to money.

Is this because he has all the right people in all the right places? Obviously not, because his nefarious acts seem to get out no matter how much “fixing” he tries to employ. But no matter; in the aggregate, Trump as an individual, enjoyed an immense winning streak, making himself known throughout the US and the world. And this was before becoming president.

Speaking of becoming president, if you go back and read what he said about both parties before he ran, you’ll see he understood politics pretty well. Trump isn’t dumb, therefore. He knows what he’s doing. And he does it well.

The New York Times once praised Trump’s ability to shake off legal challenges. A Time Magazine article, confirmed his ability to adroitly use the legal system to get his way. He successfully delayed most of his most recent legal troubles so that he could take another shot at the White House this year. This is no fluke. He calls it like he wants it. And he gets his way.

It’s about focus

Everyone can enjoy similar success at creating a reality matching one’s wildest desires. Nothing is off the table. Not even the White House, apparently. But it requires focus. And, if anything, Trump has that in spades.

Nothing is wrong in all the Universe. It’s humans who create “right” and “wrong”. The Universe doesn’t see physical reality that way. Instead, it sees it as all good. That’s because every expression of physical reality contributes to the “more” that is All That Is. The more the better.

Even All That Is would get bored with everything being one way. Surprise and delight are orders of the day. So is diversity of everything. And you can bet there are things in All That Is that it delights in that humans would call “wrong” and even “immoral”. Tragedy and abhorrence, therefore, are just as valid expressions of All That Is as the most saintly and pious acts.

This means anything you can conceive of enjoying you can enjoy as your experience. But be careful how you think about what it is you want. Because how you think about it can put the kibosh on what you’re wanting. I talk about this a lot in this blog.

And that’s what’s plaguing Trump now too. As a result of entering politics, he’s gotten himself into a train of thought, a way of storytelling, that doesn’t serve his interests. It’s because of that that All That Is inspired people like Fani Willis, Stormy Daniels, Michael Cohen and others to come out about Trump and his….predilections.

Setting the stage for his downfall

The moment Trump entered the White House, actually slightly before, Trump started focusing on things he didn’t want. He focused on staying in the White House by focusing on “not losing”. He focused a lot on his “enemies” rather than those who support him. Trump focused on “rigged” political and legal processes that he claims are out to get him. As a result, all of those things became more prominent in his experience.

The more one focuses on what they don’t want, the more of what they don’t want will show up. The more detailed and intense those things will get too. This explains why the media, known for uncovering the whole story, really began scrutinizing Trump after he won the presidential election. He attacked the press in retaliation, while at the same time currying favors from and sidling up to other media organizations such as Fox News and American Media Incorporated.

In time, these organizations would find themselves wrapped up in similar legal troubles. Especially after Trump triggered the Jan. 6 insurrection.

And that’s the other trouble with Trump’s focus since winning the White House. He aligned himself with people whose dominant focus is extremely negative. That caused his vibration to mix even more with theirs. It’s no wonder, for example, that Trump loves Putin, the North Korean dictator and other nefarious characters. It’s also no wonder he’s sidled up with far right people too. And that others like him are replicating his behavior around the world.

Yes, Trump sees them as his supporters. But he also sees these people as vibrational equals in terms of the way they focus: mostly on themselves as victims. Trump sees himself as the ultimate victim, and thus as his fellow victims’ saviors. It’s this alignment that set the stage for his downfall.

The pitfalls of focusing on “unwanted”

Of course, there are no victims. Everyone creates their reality, including experiences that come their way. That’s a harsh thing to hear when considering certain subjects, such as sexual abuse.

But there’s no way around it because the universe is recursive, meaning, every particle of it functions under the same principles. So to say victims exist would mean the principles apply to only certain situations. But the principles apply to every situation, no exceptions.

So as Trump more and more blames others for his troubles, he will get more evidence that that, in fact, is true. Why? Because life will verify any belief as true.

Another way he digs a hole for himself is by trying to solve his problems through action. Doing appears to be the way things happen. If that were the case, then, again, there’d be an exception to universal principles.

Vibration and attraction is how things happen. Action or doing is the penultimate manifestation just prior to the full-blown fulfillment of a desire. Action is what brings the person to the point in time and space where the their desire fulfills itself.

That’s how when a person focuses on something they don’t want, such as the story “I’m unlovable” their relationships will consistently give them evidence supporting that. Then the person will act in unlovable ways, thus creating circumstances in which partners leave.

It’s not the unlovable acts creating the results. It’s the story that prompts or inspires unlovable acts.

A perfect example

I’m eager to see where Trump’s life trajectory takes him in the next 18 months. With another massive state lawsuit on the horizon, and several other federal ones, he’s created quite a ride for himself. And, with the election coming, it will be interesting to see how reality collapses around what he focuses on.

In the meantime, I’m eager too that all this mess has caused people to ask for more. And the Universe is delivering. So much being out of whack in the United States, especially our political climate, foretells of a great rebalancing coming. A rebalancing that could create a future far better than the present we currently have.

Make no mistake though. Some people thrive no matter how bad it gets. Those are the people whose focus is consistently on what they want, not what they don’t want. Millions of others may suffer no matter how good it gets too, for the opposite reason: focusing on what they don’t want.

Yes, it would be nice for all those suffering to not have to suffer. But since the Universe responds to individual vibration, we can’t do much to alleviate others’ suffering. Even if we fix all the problems, some people would still suffer.

You and I don’t need to suffer though. Trump is giving us a great example of how to do it right…and not so right.

What Happened When Her “Dead” Father Came Back

TLDR: A client discovers a wondrous experience when she connects with her father, who passed away 10 years ago. The experience exemplifies how positive mindsets create experiences people believe are impossible. Yet these experiences are possible after releasing beliefs which stand in the way.

This post follows up on the wonderful experience a client had which I wrote about last week. Amazing doesn’t even get close to what happened. What happened was, after the client softened stories keeping her from experiencing what she wanted, what she wanted flowed easily into her experience.

The experience confirms everything the Positively Focused practice offers. It’s literally a wish-granting jewel. That’s because we all are All That Is, a microcosmic version of that, adding to All That Is through our unique perspective. We do that through living our lives. When we live our lives in joy, all we want flows easily.

Even things we once thought impossible. Including hearing from our “dead” relatives.

So let’s get into this joyous, mystical experience. Let’s look at what happened, how it happened and share in the client’s amazement. It will give you goosebumps.

Death: not what we think it is

The client, who I’ll call Jill, adamantly believed crying offered nothing of value. Trained by her mother, who was trained by her mother, Jill refused to cry. Working in a male-dominated profession amplified her resistance towards that act.

So when we talked about the passing of her father, which happened almost ten years ago, Jill valiantly fought back tears. She felt his passing was “unfair”. It happened suddenly, at a relatively early age. No signs of illness presented themselves before her father died. And, when he did go, he did so right in front of Jill’s mother.

From a human perspective, we can all agree that’s a pretty “tragic” way to go.

But no death is tragic from All That Is’ perspective. Nor is it tragic from the dying person’s perspective. As hard to believe as it may be, we all choose circumstances surrounding our deaths. That’s why Seth says “every death is a suicide.”

Humans put a lot of distortion over the experience Abraham calls “transition.” That’s a better word for it because it really is that; “death” is simply a transition from one state to another. Indeed, it represents a return to what we were before we became human. And, great joy accompanies that transition for most of us. In the transition, we release all our resistance and return to our fullness. It’s literally a transition from our human state, back into our nonphysical, eternal state.

So death, in other words, is not what we think it is.

Our wildest dreams: meant to be lived

All Positively Focused clients gradually get to experience this “death” thing before they die. It’s a crucial purpose of the Positively Focused practice. Fear of dying colors almost every aspect of living. It creates “time-shortage consciousness”; a feeling we’re running out of time as we age. That prevents people from living full lives. It also generates a ton of resistance. Especially about what we believe is possible.

So in the Positively Focused practice, through dream work and meditation, we show ourselves that death really is nothing to fear. We also realize we are eternal beings. Not limited to one life, then subject to annihilation. Joy flowing from these realizations is inexpressible. It’s so empowering. That empowerment opens the door to a lot of things most people feel they can’t enjoy. Like following and realizing their wildest dreams.

Wild dreams are future probable realities we can, indeed, real-ize. But doing so means lining up with such probable futures so we become a match to them. When we do, they flow effortlessly into our lives as our lives.

But a lot of resistance stands between most people and their wild dreams. Which explains why so few live lives full of fulfilled dreams!

The joy of the unexpected

Jill and I reconvened after our talk from the week prior about crying. I also wanted to resume our conversation about her dad, who transitioned ten years ago. The next day was the 10th anniversary of his passing. I knew something special was available for Jill were she able to align with it. That was my intent coming into the session: for her to have this experience. I knew it would surprise and delight her.

It wasn’t clear what exactly would happen. I just knew, from my Broader Perspective, that this session was going to be special. And that it could bring Jill an experience she wasn’t expecting.

So we talked about the “fairness” of death, particularly one like her father’s. We explored alternative explanations for why such things happened. In time, I felt Jill’s resistance softening. Both her resistance about the lack of fairness of her father’s transition, and her resistance towards crying. Indeed, as we spoke, tears flowed down her cheeks.

That’s when I knew she was ready. I offered Jill a phrase I knew would trigger the experience you’re going to read shortly. Call it a mantra, spell or incantation. It was simply a suggestion I offered her. I told her to say it several times in the morning the next morning. Then I asked her to be on the look out for a sign from her father that her father was “alive happy and care free.”

What follows is Jill’s account of what happened next, in her own words.

The weirdest thing happened

When clients say “the weirdest thing happened” — that’s a sign something happened that strains clients’ believability. And yet, they MUST believe it because it happens to them! I love it when clients get these kinds of experiences. And I love it even more when they share them –– and give me permission to share them –– like Jill did about this experience.

Jill sent me a voice message recording detailing what happened. Through “comforting” tears she recounted a mystical event that undoubtedly was orchestrated by her Broader Perspective. I’m offering two ways to experience her experience yourself.

  1. Listen to it here, in her own words. It’s powerful. Clicking on that link will likely open a new window to my google drive. Then you can play the recording. Or…
  2. Read the transcript below, which I have edited so it meets the style guide of my blog.

The recording is so much better to listen to than the words below. In the below account, I included links to the two things she references (the gossip article link and a link to the Colbert interview) so you can get the full picture.

So what follows is the text version.

Meeting her dad again

Hey Perry, good morning.

I thought I should probably share a couple things with you this morning. And if I cry, I won’t stop myself from crying, but I did the [incantation] — I can’t even think of the word right now — yesterday.

I said “Universe, please show me a sign that my dad is alive and well or doing well.” And all day yesterday was on the lookout [but] nothing really appeared.

This morning I got up and did the same thing, And I was thinking ‘OK it’s been 24 hours and maybe I can’t see it. Or maybe I have not tuned into it.

I have a guilty pleasure that I have been doing for the last 19 years when things were really, really, really bad with [my daughter’s father]. I would do two things: one I would go walk around really, really beautiful parts of San Francisco. There was so much ugliness happening in my life, I just needed beauty.

So I would walk past these like really stately old homes from the gold rush with really nice landscaping and just — I just needed physical beauty and so I would walk around the city.

And the second thing I did, which is my guilty pleasure, is, I started reading mindless celebrity gossip. Not because I give a shit about celebrities, but because it was (a). transportation out of what I was dealing with, and it was just like stepping out of things that were really heavy and really real in the moment. So that brings me to this morning.

I popped onto the one of two celebrity gossip sites that I read. And I was just scrolling through, and found the piece that I’m about to send you. I read it and I was like ‘holy shit’!

Then I watched the embedded YouTube video of Matt Damon on the Stephen Colbert show which is like not something I would ever ever, ever seek out. I don’t wanna spoil it for you, but definitely watch it. [Colbert] said something [in one of] his questions [like] “What do you think happens when we die?” and just like, my heart stopped [at Matt Damon’s] response.

The Colbert interview.

Then, the very last story that he tells was really incredible! I think you will resonate strongly with it. [That’s when] the floodgates open[ed], and I just totally started to cry, not in a bad way, but in a very ‘Wow, this is incredibly comforting’ way.

Maybe this is what you and I were trying to articulate the other day or maybe you were trying to articulate. Like I couldn’t hear it and, of course, momentum and resistance came to my head when I was thinking that.

But in that release — and I know you’re gonna be like “I told you so!” — it actually transported me back to 10 years and one day ago when my mom called me to tell me that my dad died. I was in bed, not feeling well. She called and I didn’t pick up her first call and then the second call came in and it was from my brother’s phone number.

My brother never calls anybody. That’s when I knew I had to answer the phone. And when my mom told me that my dad had died, I asked her if she was joking and she said “no that’s not something I would joke about.” I Don’t remember hanging up with her, but I sat up straight in bed — and I had forgotten this moment until this morning — and it was immediate panic like ‘oh my God oh no!’

Then this very clear thought came through, which was: Did my dad know that I loved him? I know he loved me. And it was OK. I was like ‘OK. You know that it’s OK, he knew and I knew it’s OK.’

Then the weirdest thing happened. My dog came over. He is blind and deaf and he came over to the couch and he sat [there]. [But] he wasn’t looking at me. He was looking at the couch cushions next to me. And he was like pulling at it and pulling at it like there was somebody there.

You know [my husband] was not awake. There was nobody actually physically sitting there and all I could think was like ‘this is universe showing the sign!’

Life experience: the best teacher

The power of All That Is combined with the power of all that we are as individual instances of that is unlimited. We exist beyond time and space. Beyond time and space and limitations of human-ness. Those of us who transition remain with us, here. And we can continue our relationships with them. If we want.

But if we believe like most people, we can’t “see” them. Usually because we’re looking where they aren’t. Our loved ones exist in nonphysical, that place from which we come, and to which we’ll return. Accessing that while still in a physical body is available to us all. It takes practice. And a willingness to let go of bogus beliefs blocking the ability.

Jill’s experience proved this to her. It’s really hard to disbelieve when it happens to you. Disbelieving another’s experience is easier. But when it happens to you, it’s a lot harder to do that. That’s why Abraham says “life experience is the best teacher”.

Everything is possible. The question is, what are you believing that blocks what’s available to you? Want to live your wildest dreams? I say go for it. Want some help? I’m here. My client roster is filling fast though. Not trying to FOMO you. But soon, I will stop accepting new clients. So if you want to get in on the fun, there’s no better time than now.

What Happens When I Share Advice Of My Eternal Being

Photo by kat-j on Unsplash

TLDR: The author’s experience with their higher consciousness results in a transformative outcome for their client who struggles with not wanting to be seen as a “cry-baby”.

Wisdom flowing from my Broader Perspective delights everyone who hears it. Clients often talk about “golden nuggets” I share during sessions. These nuggets represent peals of wisdom coming from All That Is. All That Is being expressed by my Broader Perspective.

This happens, of course, because now I’m chronically tuned to my Broader Perspective. That’s the aspect of All That Is that is the larger part of me — That part of me that remained in nonphysical while another part of me incarnated in this body.

By allowing that Broader Perspective connection as a dominant aspect of my consciousness, I can feel its communication. That communication feels deeply satisfying. And when I receive communication, accompanying it is a strong urge to express it.

That expression is what sounds like “golden nuggets”. Sharing such a nugget is what happened recently, to the delight of a newer client. Let’s take a look at what happened.

Some background

This client, like many people, came into the world through a family of “no nonsense people”. Her mother, and her mother’s mother…and so on through past generations…believed crying to be a sign of weakness. Compounded upon that belief are stories about what it means to be a woman.

So this client, as many clients do, came to her beginning sessions with a lot of resistance about letting go of resistance. One natural way we let go of resistance is through crying. Crying represents a manifested form of abundance. It’s what happens when variation inherent in life experience is so abundant, and our focus on that so acute, we go into a state of overwhelm.

Now my clients recognize the value of the emotion “overwhelm”. All emotions give us crucial information. But the majority of people don’t know this, which explains why so many people think crying makes someone a “cry-baby”.

If that natural expression doesn’t happen, emotional build up within the human body can get so strong, it can cause other physical and mental manifestations. Manifestations like disease, for example. Or anxiety.

In fact, most “disease” results from this. Medical science is beginning to recognize that fact. In a later post, I’ll write about discoveries science is finding. Discoveries confirming what spiritual adepts like me have known since ancient times: That our bodies are manifestations of our beliefs.

In short, it’s important to release resistance. Doing so serves many goals. For one, it contributes to physical well being. Secondly, it allows us to live lives where things we want happen with little effort on our part. Other reasons support releasing resistance. But these are two big ones; at least as far as humans are concerned.

Ok, back to this client.

A beautiful communication

So this client expressed strong knee-jerk reactions to my suggestion that she should let her tears flow. “Andersons [not her real surname] don’t cry” she kept saying. It was a mantra for her, even while we spoke about her father’s passing, a subject over which she had a lot of resistance. Indeed, as if in spite of this mantra, tears began flowing down her face. What a juxtaposition of manifestations!

This conversation would continue into the next session. Meanwhile, the next morning, I came out of the dream world with communication from my Broader Perspective on this topic. The communication came fully-formed. Along with it came a strong impulse to share it. So I made myself a reminder to send the client a text after my morning rituals.

When my reminder popped up, I sent the message. It was a while before the client responded, but I knew the message hit its mark. It was from my Broader Perspective after all. And my Broader Perspective’s wisdom is unerring. Here’s what I sent. The client’s response follows:

Resurrect your wisdom

When I received the “download”, as many new agers call this communication, its beauty astounded me as well. After writing it, I too, like my client, read it and re-read it. It does flow with amazing clarity and grace. It’s almost poetic.

This is the kind of thing that’s available to all of us. We are eternal beings experiencing human conditions as a way of expanding what we are. In doing so we also expand All That Is, including humanity and this world.

Most humans live through this experience as humans. But some come into the world with strong enough clarity to want more. They know this is not all there is. And in that knowing, they spark within themselves a rebirth, usually after some time spent as an ordinary human. This process is what Neville Goddard referred to as “the resurrection.”

I like that way of putting it.

Resurrection is a glorious experience. All that follows that experience fills one with such delight, words can’t get close to describing the expeirence. I encourage anyone with an iota of interest in the spiritual, anyone who sees themselves as a seeker, to pursue their interest; to become a finder. Tap into your Broader Perspective communication, receive delightful messages of beauty and wisdom. Then see your life transform.

What Happens When People Speak Truth About The Bible

Photo by Aaron Burden on Unsplash

TLDR: The author shares their reaction to people who commented on an article they wrote about mistranslations in the Bible. They use this opportunity to assert that “truth” springs from one’s beliefs, thereby making anything one believes true for that person. They then suggests that Christians may find greater satisfaction in learning to discern the Bible’s distortions from its wisdom.

The Bible. It’s a book. It has inspired a lot of hatred and killing…ironically. But it also has inspired and does inspire a lot of love.

And this is the point of physical reality: We see what we train ourselves to see. Furthermore, once we’ve trained ourselves, it’s very hard to see anything else. That’s definitely the case when it comes to the reality that is the Bible.

But we can choose what we see. Even after our “seeing” rigidifies. Whatever we choose to see shapes what we see. It also prevents us from seeing anything else.

This past week, I wrote a story about a documentary. The documentary moved me. That’s why I wrote the story. The film told of a distortion in the Bible, a mistranslation made in the Revised Standard Version (RSV). The documentary is powerful. My characterization of it in my blog echoed that power. It also asserted that while this mistranslation was not malicious, it still created tremendous suffering, and does so even today.

Some things change. Others remain the same.

That previous story ranks as one of my most popular. In this story, I look at some responses people made to that story. The responses show exactly what you’ve just read: Our world springs from our beliefs. And the more we hold to those beliefs, the less open we are to seeing the world differently. Which suggests we should be very careful about what beliefs we adopt, doesn’t it?

There is no one “truth”

Some responders thought my story was about me trying to change people’s world view, especially Christian people. Perhaps that’s why a few commenters pushed back rather hard, calling my supposed attempt to change people’s minds “ridiculous”. One person even advised I “get on my knees” and ask “God to show you what is truth”.

Little do these people know, I once was a fundamentalist Christian. I belonged to no church, but I carried my Bible everywhere and believed Jesus was my personal savior. That was my truth at that time.

Today, however, after navigating through many “truths”, I’ve come to my own thinking on spiritual matters, as well as “truth”. A direct, personal, private conversation with Infinite Intelligence supported that navigation, which is primarily responsible for my client work today as well as the Positively Focused Practice or Way.

Since I’ve walked this path, I see that word “truth” brings a lot of danger if it’s misunderstood. No “One Truth” exists. Thinking that way gets people into a lot of trouble. One only need look around to see that. Whether in politics, religion, families or love, people who think they know the truth, while also thinking others don’t, sow the seeds of conflict.

There is no one truth. Any belief anyone holds will become “truth” FOR THAT PERSON. That’s why people do really outrageous things, like blowing themselves up as an expression of religious truth, or shooting up a pizza restaurant while believing something truly nefarious goes on behind the pizza ovens.

In fact, for every point of consciousness there exists an infinite number of truths. Which truth is true? All of them are, for that point of consciousness holding them. What we believe creates reality. Reality becomes truth, but only truth for those holding beliefs which gave rise to the reality. When it comes to the Bible, a lot of people believe they have the truth.

Make truth non-threatening

Of course, holding our intimate truths born of our beliefs is harmless to others. That is, until we believe our truths compel us to push them onto others. That’s when trouble starts. And unfortunately for many Christians following what they think the Bible teaches, those people believe their job is making others adopt what they believe is the truth.

On a walk the other day, I came across a group of very young women. They offered people passing by Italian sodas. When they offered me one, I declined.

Then I changed my mind. My soda came with a Christian flyer. I refused the flyer, not because I disliked the message, but because I didn’t want to carry a piece of paper. One I’d later probably throw away.

Instead of accepting the flyer, I invited any of the young women to give me the 30-second Christian pitch. One person did, and boy, she knew her truth. She ticked all the boxes: original sin, saved by the blood of Jesus, etc. But not once did she offer anything relevant to me. Not once did she ask me any questions to make her pitch relevant. What is the saying? “Know your customer”. She was utterly clueless.

Which brings me to a comment on my story last week. This one was brilliant. The person writing told a great story about his experience with a conservative pastor on the subject of evangelizing:

The point is, if we think our truth matters more than others’ (they don’t, but whatever) it makes sense to offer our truth in non-threatening ways or in a way that resonates with the listener. I don’t fault the young ladies for their naiveté. They are young. They have very little life experience.

I don’t even fault commenters who asserted the documentary, 1946, was inaccurate, even without having watched it. Or people who think I need to get on my knees and ask god for the truth. Our truths are powerful. As I wrote above, our truths will not allow anything other than what we believe “in”.

That’s why I didn’t write the story to change anyone’s mind. The story was about a film that moved me.

It’s all good

Several commenters wrote in support of what they thought was the purpose of the story. I believe they thought it was about condemning the Bible, Christianity and, more generally, religion. I appreciate their support.

That’s not what the story was about though. It was about a documentary that moved me. A documentary that fleshed out something I didn’t know before. The documentary moved me because I am queer. When I was a Christian, I didn’t believe the crap from churches that I was condemned to hell. I knew better. I also knew the Bible was a book written by man and subjected over time to a ton of interpretation.

Therefore misinterpretations must exist in the book, I thought. That this documentary came along confirming my thoughts, I saw as a manifestation of a long-held knowing. That’s why I wrote the story. I felt moved.

I don’t dislike or hate Christians. Nor do I dislike or hate religion. Religion, like science, is based on beliefs. Beliefs create our realities. So, therefore, what’s to dislike or hate? Instead, I revel in the variety of life experience. That phenomena gives rise to enormous diversity, something I call “expansion”. And all of it is good.

And isn’t that what the Bible says god said when “he” created the world? It was all good. Indeed.

Which brings me to one particular comment that struck me. It was so complete, clear and on the mark. The details the writer, Tom Gough, expressed moved me as much as the documentary did. I want to conclude with it because it sums up a lot of what the documentary said, yet, didn’t explicitly say.

Followers of Paul, not Jesus

Tom responded by affirming that mistranslation exists in the RSV, then he continues:

“This was the RSV which, problematically, is a translation depended upon by Liberal Christians and loathed by Evangelicals. The texts in question should never have been translated as homosexual, (which is a term of identity rather than a specific activity), but -arsenokoites- is a word of Paul’s own construction that literally means “Male Beds” and has historically been translated as “Men having sex with men.” Paul also used the word -malakos- which means soft or effeminate and, again historically, has been used to imply a catamite or other male receiver of male sexual attention.”

“So, while it would be nice to imagine that all the anti-gay rhetoric coming out of the various church institutions is a matter of unfortunate translation, it isn’t. Paul was never a Pharisee but a gentile who attached himself to the Sadducee’s High Priest , and thus devoted to ritual and sexual purity. More than that, Paul is a homophobe. He is also an erotophobe who finds every form of sexual expression to be icky and only tolerates sex in its absolutely least offensive form in marriage. “You may have a child together, but otherwise do not touch yourself or anyone else ever.” Paul clearly has issues. He is also not Jesus. Jesus never said bupkiss about gay folk, and in fact appears to have a much more expansive and inclusive attitude toward the variety of sex and gender expression than the culture in which he lived (Matthew 19:12 for example).

It is pointless to try and rescue Paul from his own pathology. The real question (apart from why believe any of it?) is why Evangelicals, and other Christian Authoritarian institutions, so clearly prefer to follow Paul rather than Jesus. It’s because they are themselves, by nature, Sadducees seeking wealth and oppressive power, just like Paul – and because Jesus asks too much tolerance, compassion, and love from his followers, while Paul gives his a broad and vicious invitation to prejudice in the the name of purity.”

Still holding out hope

That last paragraph is spot-on in my opinion. It’s pointless trying to change anyone’s mind, until they’re willing to have their mind changed. Changing people’s minds, therefore, was the farthest thing from my intent in writing last week’s story. Evangelicals and other Christian Authoritarians ARE following Paul instead of Jesus. They are sycophants lusting after as much power as they can get. That’s antithetical to what Jesus offered.

Which explains why some of the most vocal, political Christian leaders do not offer messages of tolerance, compassion and love. Especially towards gay and trans people.

But I don’t think these people hate gay and trans people. I think, actually, that they don’t care at all about them. What they care about: amassing power, wealth and the attention of religious sycophants. Their focus on gays and trans people will end, as soon as they realize the religious sycophant tires of that as a polarizing issue.

And tire they will. Because consciousness doesn’t like staying in one place. Anyone who has ever tried meditating knows this (LOL). So, in time, these people will all move on to another group. And the world will be better for it. The LGBTQ world at least.

In the meantime, I still hold out hope for more Christians to realize their main text contains distortions. It’s also full of divine wisdom. And so I also hold hope that more Christians will learn to discern the latter from the former. When they do, the world will be better off.

When Life’s Results Shows Me How Fun Life is

TLDR: The Universe’s humor aligns us with the abundance of life, as the author’s experience with a new client illustrates. Coincidences manifest our desires, and this synchronicity reflects a growing trend of abundance in the author’s client practice. The story highlights the joy of life aligning with our wants, and the spread of positive outcomes through clients’ lives. The author emphasizes that a delightful life is achievable by aligning with this universal abundance.

The Universe enjoys a sense of humor. It’s one reason why mirth feels so good. In mirth, we’re aligned with All That Is.

Life is a component of All That Is. Life too, enjoys a sense of humor.

So when life served me with this wonderful, humorous manifestation, I felt the humor too. The “coincidence” of what happened was so perfect, I couldn’t help but enjoy the unfolding.

This story is about what happened. Let’s take a look at that lovely “coincidence”.

More clients equals more abundance

Of course, I put “coincidence” in quotes because, really, there are no coincidences. Not in the way most people use that term. Abraham likes to say “coincidences” are the co-inciding of cooperative components, emerging in physical reality in a time and place with perfect timing. That emergence happens in a way we can enjoy that “manifestation” as the final cooperative component coming into place.

So we could say coincidences are real. Real in the sense that they happen because we manifest them. Not because they represent some random happening.

Knowing this, I enjoyed what you’re about to read. It also helped that what happened grew my client practice. Lately, in fact, more and more clients are showing up. That’s consistent with what I’ve written about over and over: that the Universe showers us with abundance. Abundance of all kinds.

The best abundance though is that aligned with what we’re wanting to see. When that happens, the world becomes delightful. Then we get even more of what we’re wanting. And that “more” comes in greater abundance. Which explains why more clients are showing up.

It’s so cool.

A playful “coincidence”

One weekend recently, while working on a blog post, a funny thing happened. I was writing a paragraph explaining the story of Pollyanna. That’s when I got an email notification. My calendaring app notified me a new client scheduled a free Positively Focused 1:1.

I clicked over to the email and, what do you know! The new client’s name was…wait for it…Pollyanna!

What’s interesting about this person is how much of a natural she is to the practice. Like everyone, life caused her to conclude in ways unhelpful for living a Charmed Life. But the fact that she’s found her way to this practice was no coincidence. She’s taking to it quite quickly, which is something I like seeing in clients.

Such rapid resonance with the practice foretells promise. A promise that results such clients will produce, will create ripples of goodness through their lives and the world at large.

It’s no surprise then that one client’s ripples include her daughter and now her son becoming a client. And another client’s best friend becoming a client, then her husband too.

Finding something different

The fact that Pollyanna came to me perfectly timed as I wrote that paragraph doesn’t escape me. Seriously, how many “Pollyannas” are out there? I see this as a spectacular indication of my own alignment. That and all the other wonderful things happening in my life.

I love it when life reveals to me things proving how fun and easy life is. Life can be this way for everyone. In fact, it IS this way for everyone. If we’re not experiencing that, it’s only because we’ve overlaid bogus beliefs on what’s really happening.

It’s not that those beliefs aren’t “true”. All beliefs, believed long enough will produce realities consistent with them. But the question is: is that truth something you want?

If the answer is “no, I want something different” then I can help with that.

Our Charmed Life is continually unfolding. I love seeing my clients discovering this, then aligning their life experience to that. Maybe you’re ready to do the same?

What Happens In What People Call “Dreams”

Photo by Bruce Christianson on Unsplash

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.

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.

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.

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.

How Dreams Offer The Best Solutions To People’s Problems

TLDR: A series of vivid, emotional dreams led to a deeply cathartic experience, resolving internal struggles with a sense of homecoming and fulfillment. This transformative journey left the writer feeling great and eager for more extraordinary living.

Wow. It’s 0736. I just woke feeling wonder. There’s a massive smile on my face. Happiness flows through me as well as a sense of powerful worthiness.

Worthiness is an important feeling. All my clients start out far from feeling worthy. A lack of worthiness plagues all of humanity. It’s complicated, but that unworthiness feeling explains all the drama humans create as a species and as individuals.

For me, however, my worthiness is growing by leaps and bounds. This morning offered yet another expansion of it. An expansion I am conscious of. And that consciousness, that awareness, is why I’m feeling wonder.

Here’s what happened.

Unpleasant is communication

Over the last few weeks, I noticed decisions I’ve made that resulted in less than desirable results. I won’t describe what the decisions were. That’s because I’d rather amplify vibrations associated with what’s having me feel wonder and worthiness. And focusing on the decisions will amplify that old momentum.

Suffice it to say the decisions were ones I noticed brought me unpleasant manifestations. Looking from the outside, you might describe these manifestations as extremely minor. Not like my newest client, who yesterday got T-boned while driving her cat in her Tesla to the Vet. No, my unpleasant manifestations these days are minuscule compared to that.

But like all unpleasant manifestations, they came in a cluster. A cluster of increasingly intense events. That intensity cluster was good. It caught my attention. And in that, I could do something about what was unfolding. If we don’t see what’s happening, we can’t do anything about it. I’m so glad I can see what’s happening.

So last night, I made a different decision. I decided I wanted to change my trajectory.

That’s what happened. But how it happened was extraordinary.

Leverage found in sleep

What happened all happened in dream state. While everyone dreams, hardly anyone understands what happens in that state. Even those who interpret dreams and those who do “dream therapy” likely don’t understand dreams. What’s happening in dreams is far more sophisticated than we know. And far more powerful.

What humans call dreams actually exist on many planes. These planes or dimensions are so numerous, the human brain can’t comprehend what’s happening. But our Broader Perspective, that larger part of us, understands it fully. What’s more, that part of us guides dream activity.

What we do while awake informs that activity. But dreams influence our waking experience in return. When a human can directly, deliberately use dream influence, life gets really interesting. For then we can use that influence to improve life experience.

That’s what happened last night.

It feels like it happened for me, instead of me making it happen. And that’s the yumminess of worthiness. Because everything that happens happens for us. In other words, we’re not making anything happen. We set our focus, then the Universe coordinates outcomes. Outcomes best fitting our focus or intention.

I got a direct experience of that last night. And, frankly, it feels AH-mazing seeing it unfold!

The “topography” of last night’s dream experience.

Proficiency produces powerful dream experience

I had three “segments” of dreams. The first came before my mid-night meditation. The second happened after that mediation. The third immediately followed the second. Several dreams comprised each segment. In total, I dreamed at least 15 dreams. All were extremely vivid and real, just like being awake. But the emotional “tone” or “flavor” of them was far more intense than waking reality.

Seth talks about senses we use in the dream state. Some correspond with our waking senses; seeing, hearing, etc. But some senses don’t correspond to waking senses. Perceiving through emotion is one of those. I can attest to the power of this sense. It feels absolutely intense. And whether it’s unpleasant emotion or pleasant emotion, it is that way…intense.

Which is why nightmares frighten us so.

In the first segment, I found myself in several different realities. I was in a suburb with houses, streets, sidewalks. But the place was nothing like waking reality. Where I was probably doesn’t even exist on this plane.

These first dreams all featured me making choices. While making them, I felt confused. I couldn’t decide what to choose. For example, I was in someone’s home. I was trying to choose a ball. The homeowner offered a variety from which to choose. There were many kinds of balls – basketballs, dodgeballs, etc. Some were old. Others were new. But, for some reason, I couldn’t choose.

On the way to that person’s home, I drove on a highway. While following traffic, I noticed I needed to follow the highway to the right. I didn’t do that though. Instead, I curved left. But I knew I wanted to go right!

Both of these are examples of me making decisions that resulted in unpleasant outcomes. You can see that they mimicked what I did while awake.

The set up continues

In the second segment, I walked through a dance club. To get there, I had to drive through an unfamiliar city at night. I parked my vehicle in the parking lot, then went inside. Inside, I met several unseemly youths. After those encounters, I decided to leave. But when I got outside, I noticed my vehicle was gone. I had just bought it. But then I realized my bad purchase decision: I bought a truck that was easy to steal.

Coaxing the youths to tell me who took it didn’t work. They took it, I knew, but they weren’t admitting it. At this point in the dream series I tried mightily to fix my decisions. Doing so got me feeling really intense negative emotion. Emotion that also was highly disempowering. It felt like despair, a wanting to give up. Highly uncharacteristic of me!

And this is another value of dream reality. It’s like a testing ground. It gives us experiences we won’t want in real life. There, we can experiment with them, and learn from them without having to live the dream “for real”.

I remember waking from the first segment feeling really clear those dreams were about my recent choices in waking reality. Waking from this second segment, it was clear how choices in the dream aligned with beliefs I have. Beliefs I’m wanting to change.

After that I went into the third segment. What happened next prompted this post.

Non sequiturs create resolution

In the third segment, I realized the purpose of this whole process. And the feeling I felt associated with that was extraordinary.

The dreams involved me being in the company of a beautiful being. I felt great comfort in their company. “Comfort” doesn’t do the feeling justice. Words can’t describe the power and pleasure of what I felt. We sat with others who watched a sporting event on television. I felt I belonged among these beings.

One of them, a female, stood before me. She had a beautiful body. Tattoos covered every inch of it. She said, without using any words, that she wanted to remove them. And that’s what she did. She peeled them away one by one with her fingers. As she did this, I felt something…a kind of release….

Then I was in an open area of low-lying buildings. My older brother stood beside me. Beneath our feet was a hand-woven rug of Middle Eastern origin. These fantastic planes flew above us. One after another passed over us and, as they did, I spoke to my brother in Farsi about how we can make use of this “campaign” to resolve differences between our country and others…

I know that doesn’t sound at all like the resolution I asked for. But you had to be there!

I’m including the major dreams only. Otherwise this post would be a TLDR experience. Suffice it to say, each one flowed one into the other with perfect cohesion. Still, I get they sound like non-sequiturs.

A perfect compendium of catharsis

The last dream I experienced before waking was the kicker. I stood in a shower. The shower wasn’t mine. Outside the shower window I heard children playing happily. Beside me, in the shower was a beautiful small-breasted woman. Her body was….nothing short of extraordinary. The water ran down both our bodies and all I remember besides what you just read was a feeling of HOME. It was a feeling of all being well, of release after climax, of ecstasy or completion.

Then a series of dreams happened that took this experience to a new level. It’s hard to describe exactly what happened. That’s because language doesn’t align with what happens in nonphysical. And the dream state happens in nonphysical.

Nevertheless the series involved me experiencing situations in which I “paused”. And in the pause, I did something that translated as resolving the process or beliefs or momentum that had me make decisions producing dissatisfying results. I knew that’s what happened, but it’s hard to make direct connection between what I saw and experienced in the dream and my translation of it.

All I can say is it was extremely cathartic. Especially after the climactic dream I experienced before that.

This entire process was such a fulfilling experience! When I woke it was just before 0730 and I knew, I just knew, what I asked for had been resolved on my behalf.

How did I know?

Emotions: Indications of expansion

Because I felt GREAT. But that’s not all. I also felt FOR SURE that what you just read happened. I recalled ALL OF IT. Including the emotions, the associations with wake state experience prior to going to bed…all of it.

Before I started writing this, I amplified everything you’re reading by affirming how great it feels. I affirmed this new day. A new day unburdened by old belief. I expressed appreciation for, and felt joy in the expressing, my expanded awareness. I also expressed how blessed I felt by my cadre — the innumerable beings in nonphysical that support every desire I create as a result of being human.

Re-reading all this, I’m in awe. It’s this kind of experience that gradually becomes available to all my advanced practice clients. I feel blessed to lead the way. The way to extraordinary living. It certainly feels extraordinary. And I’m eager for more.
