Jacob Nordby wrote a book called the Divine Arsonist which is written in the first person describing a high rolling businessman, caught in the corporate struggle of growing business and keeping up the monied image. Through twists and turns in the story, Jacob meets a man from another dimension called Lucius who challenges Jacob to *wake up*. It is a very engaging story, with lots of insights and lessons built into it. For those who are seeking purpose for their lives, this is an excellent read. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and highly recommend it to everyone. If you are not interested in the wake up call, you will still enjoy the tale for the exciting read it provides.
It takes time, energy and focus to turn the supertanker of money, greed, lies, war and manipulation, but that is what a lot of us have come here to do. We are the special forces unit of the light, singing our vibrational song, acting like tuning forks so others will pick up our resonance and sing in harmony with us. We have struggled within our own selves to climb the mountain out of the swamps. It has not been easy but we have character and courage beyond what anyone could believe.
The Modern Weapons Of Light
We are in the trenches of social media, singing our song to those who are lost and hurting, watching the miracles of their transformation, even if we don’t know who they are. We watch the tone of their posts change as they begin their climb up the mountain. We do not judge them or cast them aside. We cheer them on and as the vibration rises around us, we marvel at the beauty and wisdom of the Universe as more and more awaken. And less and less resist. Yes there are pockets of extreme darkness, but it is only a matter of time before their resonance will increase to the point where they cannot hold on to their power.
Changing Every Inch Of Your Reality
Every thought, every word you say and everything you do affects everything around you, seen and unseen. Your energy field is really large and everywhere you go in your community and your world will be affected by you as your energy field sweeps through it. You can change the tone of a whole community by just loving yourself. The vibe acts like a tuning fork sweeping everything into a new vibration and keeps spreading as the new resonance is sensed and taken up. There is nothing to do except to Be and to sing loudly.
Albert Einstein was so wise when he said “God doesn’t play dice.” You were made perfectly, filled with so much love and light. As life came along day by day, it was like blankets were thrown over you, some by you and some by others so you couldn’t see your true self any more. You were protecting yourself from the coarse world you perceived around you. Others were forcing untrue identities on you and telling you untrue stories. Sometimes they even attacked you energetically. Bruised and battered you retreated under your blankets and you forgot who you are.
The Self within you is gently stirring now, encouraging you to throw off the blankets of identities that are not you. Throw off the “I am too fat, too thin. I am poor. I am ugly. I am unlovable. I deserve to die. I deserve to be punished. I hate the world. Life is hopeless.” mentality. It is your blankets talking and not you.
Take a deep breath and shut your eyes. Briefly touch on a painful experience from your past and feel the tightness somewhere inside you. What you feel is the energetic imprint of that event or part of it. If you have tightness or discomfort in other parts of you, it has probably happened more than once but you may not remember. There are all kinds of theories about past lives and karma but just for a moment, recognize the tightness as a sign post where love is absent. Don’t put any other thoughts or memories on it. Imagine what love would be, whether it is a feeling, a red rose, or whatever comes to your mind and picture yourself filling that tight space with it and say to yourself, “I love how you love me!” Love is all there is and love does conquer all. Feel a different sensation in that place you felt tightness and you will notice the sensation expands a little and you feel slightly different. If you don’t feel anything, don’t worry, just keep repeating the exercise every time you think of it and soon your outer world along with your thoughts will begin to shift.
The love I speak of is not the chick flick romance movie stuff. It is much deeper than that and has the ability to open your life to a much more satisfying experience where you rip off those blankets one by one and gradually come out the other side as a different person. This can be a very painful experience now and then but the rewards of releasing yourself from this dark prison are immeasurable. You will become very different than you are now and you will love who you truly are.
I was introduced to an amazing lady called Venus Starchild through by buddy Bruce Goldwell in Florida. Together they decided to write a book together they called Spirit’s Voice. I asked them how they came up with the idea and this is what they wrote back.
The book is amazing and gives you goosebumps when you read it, but the point is when you align with your purpose and the divine Self within, anything is possible. This is the real message. When you play in your authentic Self you can do anything. You also become remarkable.
Do you ever wonder why you make some of the decisions you do? Sometimes we can laugh at ourselves but sometimes things get pretty serious like why people decide to smoke when they know the odds of getting cancer are pretty high, or why some people get into destructive relationships or lousy investments. Decisions run your life and if you make decisions that are not really right or good for you they must be coming from somewhere…but where? There is a rumour out there in the big bad world that your conscious mind is the size of a pea and your subconscious mind is the size of an elephant. At first I laughed buy now I know it is true. Most discernment in the majority of people comes from the elephant. Decisions are made on a subset of subconscious conditions most of which are energetic in nature. When you drive your car around, it get dirty quite naturally. You don’t even have to drive on dirt roads either. Your mind needs an energetic washing just like your car needs a physical one.
Discernment Is Seeing Through The Fog
If you live in a place where thick fog can occur you know how easy it can be to lose your bearings and get turned around or you have to go more slowly to see familiar landmarks as you move forward. The true nature of your discernment is also like that. The landmarks that give you the true nature of what is for your highest good are buried in the fog of thoughts like ‘If I don’t go partying with Paul, he will give me a hard time.” Or “Jane is expecting me to buy her something special for Valentine’s Day when we haven’t been going out long enough to say we are going steady. “ Your mind and feelings manipulate you into doing things or saying things just to get something out of it. Whether it is self-punishment, to feel powerful, to feel included or just to be part of something, your discernment can be clouded to the point where you get turned around in the fog. The truth is however, that thoughts are energies that don’t always belong to you. They can be just dirty foreign bits of energy that have become lodged in your energy field that register in your mind as thoughts that influence your feelings and behaviors. Once a path is set, sometimes it is hard to get turned in the right direction…like quitting smoking…it can be really hard if not impossible. When your discernment is clouded you can make a series of bad decisions that can affect you years and decades later in your life. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but what if you could clear the fog and get the decision you should be making.
Wanting Affects Discernment
First of all, recognize that wants that you appear to have are just lumps of foreign energy in your energy field with a pull. You keep bumping into them and they get your attention. These lumps could be anything wonderful to anything horrid and they are all tumbling around your energy field like ping pong balls at a bingo game. Which ball comes up will depend on what attracts you the most subconsciously or which one has the most control over a sector of your energy field. This is why regaining control of your energy field in total takes a lot of work because your energetic territory is so big. The part you can feel if you are clear is about 55 feet from you in any direction, but it extends out much farther than that. That creepy person that lives down the hall from you has an energy field that occupies part of the same space as yours does. That can also affect your discernment as their energy can try to interfere with yours. Now that you know some of the influences on your ability to discern you can take empowering steps to regain more clarity.
For a number of years now, I have studied under a person of great wisdom. One of the things that is hammered home is about discernment. Finding the right action or the right path is so important in creating freedom from discord and advancing anyone’s consciousness. Appropriateness is key throughout life. Make an inappropriate decision for you and it could lead you down a blind alley where you have to turn around and find your way in another direction. There are no wrong decisions of course, but there is the factor of circumstances that are created that can be disappointing and frustrating, not to mention the time that has gone by..
Discernment Is All About Appropriate Interpretation Of The Resonance
Appropriateness and the discernment of it is all about resonance and picking up the nuances of the vibration you feel. Discerning those nuances takes careful observation and practice and realizing that what is appropriate is not about what will make you happy, rich or dispel loneliness. It is about what it is supposed to teach you, how you respond to it and how and if you grow. If you don’t understand the lesson, it will be repeated, perhaps in a stronger manner next time. It will repeat until you respond appropriately, using it as a tool for consciousness growth.
Using Discernment To Break The Cycle Of An Unpleasant Repeatedly Experienced Circumstance
How many times have you relived experiences over again during your life? The people and places might have been different but the issue and emotional roller coaster it brings have the same flavor. Sometimes even when you think you have dealt with something enough, it is still there. A good example of this is my father. He was a highly unpleasant person who gave me a sense of relief when he died. I worked almost every day for about five years to be rid of his energy. When I felt I had rid myself of every scrap of his energy, I was presented a situation where I knew there was more. It takes a lot of work to rid yourself of karmic baggage if you have that intention but there are some shortcuts that can move you out of the current and into quieter waters. By using your intent and your discernment you can break the cycle of repeats that plague your life. When you work at your issues they can appear less and less in your life, leaving you with greater stillness.
These days most people think meditation is something done only by monks in temples way off there somewhere. While monks do meditate there is so much value in meditation for the average person that it is a shame not to do it. It doesn’t take a lot of time and it can help you dump your day and refresh yourself so you are not carrying around all the accumulation of your days and weeks. Life is busy and frenetic. Most people get so wound up that their muscles are tense, their monkey mind is jabbering, their digestion is disruptive and their heads feel like they are being squeezed. It is amazing how much of this can disappear during a fifteen minute meditation. Meditation is done in a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted and the medical benefits of a daily practice can lower blood pressure, calm digestion, deepen breathing, loosen tense muscles, reduce pain, calm the panic of cancer and many other benefits found during recent studies. Slowing down your life even for a few minutes can help reduce the effects of inflammation and aging.
Using Meditation To Calm The Storm
I get asked a lot how to meditate and I have to say that there as many ways to meditate as you have fingers. Some are very elaborate and have you doing all kinds of things to get you in the zone, but I believe the simplest way to meditate can be found here. It gives you the basics and once you start meditating you may find the benefits too hard to resist and want to extend your meditation for longer and longer. That can only benefit you more and more. It gets you in touch with the inner you, the one who has your highest good at heart and the one who can guide you forward. You can experience closer communication in the stillness of meditation.
I’m starting a series of posts on Mondays to introduce you to the healing power of your energy and what happens when you direct it in certain ways. Mudras have traditionally been practiced for thousands of years to affect the energy field in strong and powerful ways. The first mudra I am going to teach you is simple to do and will help clear your head, reduce headaches and drain heavy energy from your body. If you are sensitive to energy, the effects can be quite dramatic.
How To Set Up The Mudra
First, sit in a chair with your back straight and your feet flat on the floor, beside each other. Take the thumb and little finger of each hand together with the finger pads touching. Extend the three middle fingers out straight, laying beside each other in a row. Touch the pads of the three middle fingers on your temples, in the hollow on either side of your head. Place your tongue on the tissue just behind your front teeth.
Close your eyes and breathe deeply, gently and slowly in and out as fully as you can. Do this for the count of thirty, then slowly remove your hands from your head, and open your eyes. You should feel much lighter, refreshed and much calmer. If you enjoy this position you may continue for as long as you like. You will only receive benefit from doing this mudra.
I went to the airport the other day to pick up someone. I checked the arrivals and the aircraft hadn’t landed yet so I went to get a tea and settle in the waiting area. I was approached by a lady on crutches who asked me if I was drinking coffee and promptly told me her mother wouldn’t allow her to drink coffee. She looked like she was in her late forties. I asked her how long she had MS. She registered surprise and asked me how I knew she had MS. I laughed and told her I could see it in her energy field. I continued by telling her that MS was structured in such a way in the energy field in particular ways so it was possible to put MS into remission. I took a business card out of my pocket and put it on the arm of the chair beside me. The next part of the conversation surprised even her. I told her it would be a difficult decision to let go of the |MS because everything was done for her. Since she was out of the workforce for about five years, she would have to go back to work. Now all her meals are prepared, her laundry is done, she is driven everywhere. She basically has a life of leisure that has a finite end point as her disease progresses. She had a madonna like smile on her face as she turned and stumbled away making the easier decision of letting her disease take her. The challenge of letting it go was too much and her decision that she needed her disease was greater than any intent to get rid of it. I picked up my business card and put it back in my pocket.
Why Your Intent Can Destroy You
Your energy field is called that because it is filled with all types of energy. There is mixed debate as to how it all got there but suffice to say you pick up dirty energy just living life, not to mention the energy that is pushed into you by people who want you to do what they want. (You do that too, by the way).These dirty energies all have a voice, some of it is louder than others but all of it has an influence on your life and what your intent is throughout it. For good or bad your intent is influenced within your subconscious mind to the point where you are not even aware that you are making a self-sabotaging decision that will manifest sometime in your future. Make a series of these decisions and life could feel pretty terrible. Your conscious mind becomes overpowered by what is contained in the subconscious so vigilance and patience are required until you learn how to pick your way through your energetic debris.The purpose of these articles is to help you develop the knowledge and felt sense to give you signals to the best intent and direction for you. Keep in mind, there are no right or wrong choices, they all teach you something that you can intend to change or let be. Your intent is a gift, a bonus a trauma or a lesson, depending how you react to it.
With some of us, the Universe is not very subtle. It bops us on the head and suddenly we’re different. I’ve always been curious to see how other people have experienced “the Universal Call.” It seems like some people have had a road map pushed in one ear and they just seem to have a complete set of directions on exactly where they are to go and how they are to get there.
My awakening was similar to that but I must say, I didn’t always know where to go or how to get there. Sometimes when I knew, I didn’t know what I was supposed to do when I did get there.
For those who have never had an awakening experience, what would it be like if they had one? It is a very definitive experience. One that is unmistakable. Some people seem to wait their whole life in expectant anticipation for their Universal Call. I, on the other hand was not in the least expecting anything like it when it came.
When the Universe smacks you upside the head it seems to light a fuse of explosive action that sets in motion a whole series of events that take you beyond anything logical or rational. Your logical mind cannot rationalize its way out of this one! You are swept beyond your comfort zone and all the excuses your mind could come up with are unceremoniously brushed aside. You’re in for a ride now, bumps and all. Even the old creaky-springed jalopy is called into service to carry you through this quickening.
At first you’re still in doubt and trepidation about the unknown that is looming in front of you but over time you cannot deny the huge but gentle loving presence that is propelling you into a deeper state of oneness. The voice is so soft and clear, yet so strong.
You never know when an awakening will happen. Some people seem to be born awake so the awakened state is all they know. When you are abruptly dragged from your life into another way of being it can be quite a shock. On one hand, you don’t quite know what to make of it all and on the other, every cell of your body, at every level of consciousness knows that another piece of your life has just slipped into place. At first it seems quite effortless, after all, it just happened. Then a vision of the new reality opens before you. As you try to adjust to this new way of being, the ego tries to slip you back into old ways and old habits. You suddenly realize that they are now very uncomfortable and very cumbersome. Some great divine choreographer pushes you into a new dance of trying to empty your cup of the old drudgery and stickiness that was the way a while ago. We are forced to surrender, to have faith and trust in the process. Some of the bumps we experience are large indeed as family and friends try to cajole us into the old ways.
The new way is much more inviting as the clear gentle voice beckons us ever closer. Then the karma hits and bounces us around on large waves of discord as we try to navigate and find our way through. This is punctuated by that crystal clear voice whispering…”This way.” There is nothing left but surrender to the truth of who we are and the purpose we have chosen.
