A Fish out of Water

Dear fellow traveler,

Now that we are getting deeper into the ever expanding subject of energy, and our perception is starting to shift a little, then let's take a moment to assess our point of position along the measure of our paradigm shift. This may sound confusing at first, which is not my intention, so for the sake of clarity I want to make certain that you have no problems in understanding my words and expressions.

When I speak of a paradigm this is simply a shorthand way of referring to a set of conditions, an energy state, which creates your reality. In other words, the way in which you see and perceive your world is completely dependent on what you have come to accept as the energy constructs around you. Your memories are energy constructs which you have woven into your energetic being and which manifest as what we term your 'character'. You respond to your world as a direct result of what you have taken on board to make you who you are right now. You are a living breathing energy compendium which filters your experiences according to how you have integrated all your energy experiences. You have created for yourself what's called a 'paradigm'.

Imagine this. You are sitting on the sea bed of a beautiful tropical Atoll. Fish swim by and you observe everything that they do. You see their world where your experiences are the same. You feel the warmth of the water and the effects of the current while all the colors of the coral give you immense pleasure and fill you with wonder. You are wary of predators, just as the fish are, and you appreciate that life is precarious to say the least; especially in a setting which looks next to idyllic.

The fish are sensitive to much the same that you are but they have absolutely no idea at all of the world which you come from or the experiences which you use to base your choices on. They have no access to this and so their 'paradigm' is totally different – as you would expect. If you were able to discuss things with any of them then you would be amazed at how little they knew in comparison to you, and how limited their appreciation of the world which they inhabit is. They live in a world where their choices are all about survival and procreation but, in truth, it's not that far removed from our own because we do the same thing when it comes right down to it.

If you were to make your way up to the beach, and leave the water, then you would find yourself back in your own paradigm while coping with your world in the way that you have conditioned yourself to see it. When you were born, you had no preconceived ideas whatsoever. You were completely open to new experiences where the only choices you had were to act on instinct; which you did. In those times, your driving energy forces were - survival and feeling protected first, having fun and exploring your new world second. They brought you your experiences where your character and appreciation of the world around you evolved as a consequence. You still have all of those fundamental experiences with you where you used them as the foundations of making you who you are now.

You added energy to energy and in so doing you created a filter through which you view your world and your circumstances – good or bad. All the fish, which you are now observing from the beach, view their world in a similar way in the respect of the context which they have experienced.

Now then, we arrive at the important part. We have been talking about the shift in your consciousness as the new vibrational energies expand your awareness and what this truly means. There is, as I have said before, no way to describe it because your mind has nothing from the past to compare it with. You are moving to a new way of being which means allowing yourself to give up or at least change how you have been up to now. Look at the fish swimming in front of you and think what the response would be if you asked them how they liked swimming in the clear blue tropical waters of their world. The fish would answer – what's water?

They would have no idea what you're talking about as they have no way to imagine what living above the water is like – you do. You are aware of another world but how would you describe it to the fish? How would you explain what human life is like in terms that they would understand? You're not a fish but you are heading for another world the like of which is somewhat comparable to moving from the perception of a fish to that of a human. You are moving up to the next vibrational level but it's one where no human has been before; in living memory that is. I hope this gives you an idea of what's ahead.

So, to the point of all this. Your difficulty now is making the transition from asking what this has to do in practice with your everyday life. It's all great in an etheric sense and sounds really interesting but what does it do to address your daily problems where you have to deal with life as it comes at you. How does it help you manage your life when you're faced with downsizing and living on less money or potentially losing your home. How does it help you when you're faced with a problematic partner or relative who pushes your buttons and saps you of your energy and your joy. How does it help you when you have to agonize over a new or unresolved relationship which keeps you in perpetual anxiety where your happiness is permanently on hold. How does it help you when you have to deal with a job and people you don't like where you feel exhausted at the end of the day because life just doesn't seem worth living and your health is suffering.

To move the fish out of the water means making adjustments, the first of which is learning to breathe the new air and using this energy to change your world and yourself. This is what you have to do. Well, strictly speaking you don't have to do it at all. Yours is the gift of free will and so you can stay exactly as you are, if this is your choice, where you will continue to experience life as it is now. All that you don't learn in this lifetime you will reincarnate to recreate so that you can try again – or you can change now and learn it this time. It's up to you.

We have been looking at examples of energy and how it works and by now you should have a gained good idea of many different concepts as well as some practical tips. My suggestion of taking time out before acting on negative emotions is an important step towards heading up the beach and leaving the water; but are you able to do it? Is this something which you find yourself maybe thinking about once in a while or is it creeping into your mental processes frequently each day. If you're going to positively address your problems, as you see them, then it has to be an integral part of your day-to-day living. This is how you start the process of changing your energy and moving up and out of the paradigm which you are trapped in – and I do mean trapped in. Whether you agree with my statement or not, it really is the case.

By virtue of where you have found yourself for such a long time, then it's not possible to move quickly into a new state of being. More accurately speaking, it's not advisable to move quickly as the shock would be too great. Just out of interest, I once heard a being tell me that it would not be possible for me to hold even a fraction of the knowledge of our creator because I would literally explode. Obviously it made an impression on me but there was no way that I could even begin to understand what was meant by this. If I could have understood then I would have exploded. So, naturally, I choose to evolve gradually towards that level of understanding and still keep myself in one piece. That's what we're doing now. We're moving into a new level of 'being' which keeps ourselves in one piece as we progress; and I am guiding you.

Okay, here we move to the more practical, down-to-earth aspect of your journey. You walk outside your door and what do you see but the OFCOURSEWECAN taxi waiting for you. The driver enjoyed your company so much that he's come back because he wants to show you more of his home world while learning more about yours. He will take you through the barrier and up on to the beach while you learn to 'breathe' his atmosphere to experience what he does. Sounds great!

Reading these words you can allow yourself to fantasize but this is no use to you. In this energy construct which you're wrapped up in now, where my words are creating your experience, then it's fine; but if you really were to walk out of your third dimensional door and see what I've suggested then things would be hugely different. And yet this is what I'm trying to get you to appreciate.

In your reality, as it stands right at this point on your journey, then there is no way that you're even going to consider taking this ride; even if you accepted that it was possible in the first place. There are so many other demands on your time where many more important ( and no doubt relevant ) things that need to be paid attention to while choices are made in the process. Your day is full, even if you're sat watching TV, driving somewhere, reading the newspaper or a thousand other things which collectively make up your life. And besides, how would you explain to others what you would have done and where you went? God forbid that you should step out of character let alone your own world! Where would that leave you when you're trying to convince others to behave in a responsible manner for the good of their eternal soul! Oh my – what a dilemma. Does this begin to address the task in front of you.

Part of the reason that you find yourself in the situation you are in now, and how you feel about your family in general, is because you are different. You started out being different and it was for a purpose. You needed to experience an environment which would allow you the opportunity to propel yourself into this new paradigm. All of your life you have been facing challenges which others thought you were nuts to take on. In the process you have moved away from people who didn't share your view of life until you gathered those around you who at least accepted you for who you are.

Now you need to go one step farther because you need to show them the way. Will you be the fish who dares to clamber up onto the beach while all the others stay safely in the shallows? Will you go for the ride in the taxi and forget about the doctor's appointment, the letter to your lawyer that just has to be done, the bathroom remodeling which needs the builder contacting, the brat who demands your attention, the partner who you want to check up on in case s/he is cheating? All this is simply energy in motion and you need to realize that you're sustaining it. Just as the fish can't see the water, you don't see your part in what you're doing to maintain the energy of your experience. You have to get past this. The messages from spirit are that you inevitably will; the only option you have is just how long you will take to do it.

Part of the reason that you are here right now, at this point in our evolution, is that the energies which are coming to earth, and which are affecting us all, have the greatest potential to allow for the biggest shift in consciousness that we have ever known. You came to your present incarnation knowing this because it's what you wanted. In so doing you picked everything about your life so that you would be ready with all that you needed when the opportunity came. Well – it's here! It's staring you right in the face but you aren't looking at it if, in reality, you tell the taxi driver that you don't have time to make the trip with him. If you would rather sit and fret over your self-created circumstances, while your mind tries to project what it calculates the future holds for you, then that's fine. As long as you appreciate that this is what's happening.

As I said in my last blog - You cannot keep doing the same things as before and expecting to experience change. If you want to see true change then you must change first. What you are reading and what you have read, and will read, is all about how to do this. But if you don't put it into practice then it just isn't going to happen. You have to use your energy differently than how you have been up to now if you want to leave the lagoon. When you eventually sit on the beach and then look back at the water you will wonder why on earth you didn't see it before. It will be so obvious but right now it isn't. The only thing you need to trust at this moment is that you have the ability to get there. You can do it. The only determining factor is whether or not you have the will to do it.

The simple act of pausing before making choices when dealing with negative energies may sound ineffectual and irrelevant when faced with so many day-to-day circumstances which don't allow you the luxury of lapsing into meditation so as to find your answers; but where do you break the cycle? At which point can you jump off the merry-go-round so as to take stock of the situation and see it from a different perspective. Let's look at a practical situation and not something ethereal like interdimensional taxi drivers

You're standing in line at the checkout and late for an appointment or a rendezvous. The lady with three trolleys full of food eventually gets everything passed through the register and then produces a thick wad of coupons. People behind her moan and you see that it's going to take ages. One person gets irate and an argument breaks out which you feel is justified. What do you do? Your energy programming encourages you to 'join in' because you need that energy state dealt with. The other energies around are making yours vibrate in sympathy; but instead of recognizing this, you respond – as you always have. What would happen if you didn't or were even aware that you could opt out? What would be the consequences if your new awareness kicked in and you said to yourself. 'Okay, I see what's really happening here. I can handle this!”

You leave your shopping where it is, move out of the line, close your ears to the argument while all the time appreciating that your emotional energy is peaking and it needs to change. You step outside the store while thinking about what you're supposed to be doing but, instead of giving in to it, you just go for a walk to calm down while regaining your balance. The world isn't going to fall apart because you've done this but it surely is going to change for you as a result of your choices.

Let me explain. You could have chosen to soldier on at the checkout and eventually got through while feeling very irritable and frustrated at the end of it. This is an energy vibration which, if left in that state, will cause you to make choices as a result of its influence. You may have been snappy with the checkout person and then with someone who called you or even with someone you care about when meeting up with them. What you would have brought away with you from the store was more than just the items which you purchased. It was other people's energy which you then passed on, undiluted, to others. These recipients will almost surely react in a negative way as it impacts and influences them and so, in turn, they make choices accordingly - one of which may have been to start being snappy and arguing with you. Does this sound familiar? Think 'energy' if it does.

Each person in that checkout line is an energy 'being', just as you are. They exist in the same energy flow just as all the fish in the lagoon are being affected by the energy of the ocean currents. On a stormy day they get communally bounced around but in their wisdom they take shelter in places of comparatively tranquil refuge. We do similarly when faced with rainy/blustery weather but the energy storms of crowds, or disruptive individuals, remain all but invisible to us. The only 'barometer' we have to measure them by is how they make us 'feel'. As a consequence, we see no need to take an 'energetic umbrella' into the supermarket with us; but why not? It may be raining cats and dogs outside, which means that we'll surely get wet in the trips to and from the car, but we can dry the wetness off and get back to normal again. So why don't we do the same from being soaked with the energy of the store so that we can return to our preferred state of vibrational 'being' again? Why is this?

When a big long-haired dog climbs out from the lake, are you going to want to be near him in the first few seconds of his appearance? Not if you know what's going to happen or unless you're a child who thinks it's great fun to get soaked in the spray! Angry people at the checkout are no different where the 'body shake' can manifest as a burst of anger which is their way of trying to deal with the unwanted 'burdensome' energy. There's no need to expand on what repercussions this can have as everyone else attempts to do the same thing. It's just chaos – energy chaos and total disharmony which saturates you. Can you visualize this? I hope you can because it's very important.

By taking yourself out of that vibrational situation then you allow yourself the opportunity to regulate and 'retune' your own energy state. To function in a beneficial way then you need to bring your vibration into harmony with who you feel yourself to truly be. Temper tantrums often come when you feel prevented from doing this. It's a natural reaction to the need which you feel for making the world how you want it to be; but which always seems to elude your ability to manifest it. To do this in the meaningful way which brings you your greatest happiness, then disruptive energies need to be dealt with in your own space and your own time; in whatever way and however you can make this possible. This is your right! By being held captive to the turbulent energies of others, then you will inevitably be swept along with that same stormy tide where you feel completely out of control. Do not allow this to happen. Kill the robot and take over the conscious command of your ship. (See previous blog)

Returning to the store situation (the alternate scenario). You make the choice to abandon your shopping so as to go somewhere that allows you to change your vibrational state; it doesn't mater that you have commitments, this is important for you to do. You could go to a coffee shop and have something nice or just go sit in your car and close your eyes for a while. You may just take a walk or even browse another place which has a quieter atmosphere like a book store. Whatever you choose to do then your mood will be one that is difficult to cope with but, in the respect that you are somewhere which has a different energy to it, then you will be able to benefit from what you now find yourself surrounded by. Slowly but surely you will feel the positive change as your mood lightens and the day seems much less gloomy and challenging.

From this new state you will make your choices and so, when you meet up with the next person, you're going to respond to them differently. They may smile as a result but even if they don't then you will experience a lighter world because you are not bringing the disruptive energy of negativity to it. You will have consciously made the choice not to, and so the world of your experience will reflect the positive 'quality' of your intention. This is how you change your world. What you give out is what you get back. In other words, your vibration will attract similar vibrations. Contrary to popular belief, you don't get what you want, you get what you are. By now you should understand the wisdom behind this assertion. It's the law of attraction and you can't fake it!

In the supermarket, you experienced someone else's world where they attracted disruptive vibrations and you began to get drawn in. You decided not to be a part of it because it's not the way you choose to be and so you moved away in order to take the time out to readjust. Then you carried on with your intention to create the world which you feel happiest experiencing. Continuing to do this creates more and more of what you want and what your heart guides you towards manifesting. In so doing you will start to see the world differently and, before long, you will be looking back at the water in the lagoon and wondering why you didn't notice it in the delightfully new way that you are now. Suddenly the wonders of life will appear even more fascinating where a new joy will start creeping in to excite you. Life will start to feel really good and you will begin to experience a sense of fulfillment the like of which you'd not imagined possible before that time.

So what stops you from doing all of this? The fear of change? Being seen as somehow different where you often get asked - 'What's come over you? You've changed, are you ill?' Those around you may not like change but this is no reason for you to stay trapped in being who you don't want to be just to please others. You have a duty to yourself first. If you don't allow the energy of love to fully express itself in the very heart of you, then you won't experience that same quality returning to you. Be the love that you desire to receive. Don't wait for it to find you first, you already have it within you and waiting to be expressed. Live that love and let others deal with it in whatever way they choose. Almost certainly you will be helping them with their journey through doing it.

Sitting quietly on the beach you notice one particular fish which seems to have taken an interest in you. Being the kindhearted soul that you are, you take it out and show it your world and all the amazing things that you've come to understand about it. You explain to the fish about its own world and how vast it is, just like the Universe. The fish is amazed and can't take it all in but is fascinated and sees things very differently from that moment on. You put the 'enlightened' fish back into the water and it eagerly swims off to investigate the world of its new awareness.

Having read this, does your mind want to convince you of the fact that this fortunate fish may actually end up being very lonely because it now sees its world, and the other fishes, in a different light? Do you consider that, having been shown a different way of being then there is no going back from that point on where a life of isolation and disappointment is the only option? It's true to say that something cannot be unlearned and so this may well be a stumbling block to your stepping forward on the path towards a new way of viewing your life.

Okay, just consider the newly enlightened fish for a moment. It has gone back to its world but is still surrounded by all the other fishes it's known. Nothing is different except that there is now a greater distance between the scale of their vibrational harmony. The enlightened fish carries this higher vibration while choosing to live out its life in this way. Other fishes may decide to move up to match that vibration while many simply stay where they are and swim away so as to join others of a like mind (similar vibration). Neither matters to the newly aware fish because it sees the world which it enjoys and shares it with those who choose to do likewise. From its enlightenment comes a new level of companionship and enjoyment where sharing contributes a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction to its everyday life. Aloneness is a low vibration which sits very near to the bottom of the scale. Within the environment of the energy which gives rise to excitement, joy and happiness then none of the lower vibrations can exist. Aloneness cannot be felt or even imagined.

If you fear the loss of love through choosing to be different then let me remind you of the love which exists that is ever-present from your twin soul. This love is eternal and absolutely spectacular. No matter what you do, it is always with you and just waiting for you to discover it once again. Whenever you feel the possibility of loneliness creeping into your life, as you step forward onto this new path, then just allow yourself to reach out to this wonderful vibration. It will always respond so as to sustain you. The reuniting with it is your ultimate goal and this unique quest is the motivation behind your continued journey. To say that life is pointless is to miss this very point itself. To become fully aware is to appreciate just exactly what you're doing here.

Be the fish who gets put back into the water and can't wait to discover so many new things while having fun in the process. Part of that fun is sharing it with others and helping them to achieve a new level of happiness in their lives. You never know, one day you might venture to be the one that leads them out of the water and onto the beach. Won't that be a day to remember!


Next time we'll look further into more specific ways that you can manifest meaningful changes to your world so as to begin creating what it is that you truly want out of life.

With love and light as always

I am Energy - I Think

Dear Fellow Traveler,

Since my last blog I am beginning to see from all the emails and phone calls that my messages really are starting to have an effect. I couldn't be more happy but I will be even happier when the message that I am conveying to you actually starts taking effect in a very practical way while moving you towards a greater level of happiness and contentment in your life. This is my only reason for doing these blogs. I want you to be happier in your life so that you can feel that it's actually all worthwhile and that life in general starts to feel much less of a struggle where enjoyment can become commonplace for you.

To achieve this state of being then it's imperative to bring about a change in the way that you perceive not only yourself but the world around you as well. If you remember, in my last message I reiterated the wisdom that a problem cannot be solved from the same level as that in which it was created. To rise above your problems then you need to change your energy, or the vibrational quality of it, which means that you will see the world differently when you do.

Now, don't pre-judge this by applying your current level of rationalization as it simply won't work. You will be going directly against what I have re-stated concerning solving problems at a common level. By following this series of blogs then you will change the way in which you see many things and slowly you will begin to appreciate the wisdom of my guidance. Right now it's difficult for you to do this as there are many pressing issues which are taking up the majority of your energy to cope with. Problems which your mind keeps nagging you to get on and deal with in preference to musing over some esoteric explanation about where to find the directions to Nirvana and how to decode the map when you do.

My current blog series is not about trying to teach you how to delve into the heady subject of quantum physics while visualizing how the atoms of your body were forged out of a long since dead star and which now lies at the heart of a black hole. This, as fascinating and compelling as it may be, doesn't help you sort out your life and the problems which you perceive yourself being faced with right at this moment in any meaningful way. I am giving you these messages so that you can make real changes to your life. Real, practical, everyday changes which move you firmly and irreversibly towards a different, more fulfilled and more enjoyable way of being.

Here's the tricky part. I have to get past your guardian in order to do this. Visions of a muscular sentry may come to mind as you read those words but in truth I am eluding to something much more powerful and domineering. And this is …... your mind. It's the moat around your castle which, if you were to drain it of water, would absolutely stagger you as to what was piled up in the gloomy and unbelievably copious depths of this circular pit. You just wouldn't credit what it has been keeping from you; or keeping you from.

Let's just try something here to illustrate my point. If I were to state that this message was written for you and that you are the only one reading it right now, then what would your mind tell you?

You see, first of all I'm not saying “how do you feel about this statement”, I'm asking what your mind, which stands at the forefront of your consciousness, the guardian of your experience, wants you to hear; wants you to believe (it's a real bully!). Because that's what happened when you read my words. Your mind went leaping into action so as to rummage back through countless past experiences, and its concept of the world which you inhabit, so as to come to a decision about my assertion. In all likelihood it will have told you that my statement either isn't true or that at the very least its highly suspect and untrustworthy.

This is simply a process of energy interactions the like of which you manipulate every moment of your waking hours and which constitutes the way in which your life unfolds as a result. This is precisely what we must address so as to move you up into a different level of awareness – if you're willing of course. It's your choice. (I'm addressing you here – and not your mind)

Now, let's go back to my statement again. You are the only one reading these words and my message was written for you. See if your appreciation of this energy dynamic can bend a little so as to truly take on board the notion that words are literally energy. What I have written here, and then through the process of you reading my words, is the literal unfolding of an energy exchange between you and I. It can be no other way and it's extremely personal. The energy potential contained with my words on this page is now interacting with your own unique energy where the consequence of this interaction is also unique. In the context of space and time, you are the only one experiencing our energy relationship right at this very moment. The next word, phrase or sentence that you read will not be read by anyone else in the Universe at the same point in time; just you! What you are reading now, right this moment, this instant, is unique to you; as is how you are responding to it.

The difficulty in thinking this way is that your mind cannot conceive of 'now'. There is no concept of the present moment in your mental processes where only the past and the future exist; but, in truth, these are purely mental concepts which are simply phantoms of the mind. If you find difficulty in appreciating this then trying telling me where yesterday is. The only evidence of its existence will be in some form of writing or printed images which actually exist in the now. Your mind looks at the 'now' images and words while processing the energy from them into a concept of a time that has passed. Can you see how difficult it is to sidestep this way of viewing life and how much it plays a part in your everyday existence.

Having read these words, your mind will come rushing forward in a determined attempt to assure you that it does indeed understand the difference between past/present and now. But this totally superficial response is only paying lip service to a state of being that it's unable to achieve or conceive of while constantly trapping you in the past/future energy quicksand of addressing your current problems. This has to change. You cannot rely on something so insubstantial any more. There must be more freedom to explore new concepts and feelings while bringing the energy of love into the equation.

We ( you and I ), have put some effort into extracting that nail from your shoe so that you can finally stop walking around in circles. In so doing, however, you will need to give up your comfort zone while trusting to a part of your inner self which you have rarely sought advice and guidance from. This is the true change that we need.

I can sit here writing to you until we both grow old and grey while explaining every metaphysical principal and law of the Universe which, if you don't apply them or even understand them or their value to you, won't make an iota of difference to your life. Many people offer you this wisdom, with the very best of intentions, but until those words create a fundamental shift in your perceptional energy then it's of no use.

Here is something else for you to consider while in this particular energy vibration of contemplating the 'now'. Right at this very instant, right now, this second, this one; no, this one ( not the one that's just gone by ) this one right now, tell me - what's wrong with your life? Answer this without allowing your mind to offer you its opinion. Don't think about a reply. Sit where you are while becoming fully aware of this now moment. This point in space and time where you find yourself. Right now – tell me, what's wrong with your life? Be honest.

When you take out of the equation the factor of anticipating the future while attempting to construct its idealized state, then what's wrong with how you are right now? Are you okay? Do you have enough money for your immediate needs like feeding yourself and having a roof over your head while keeping healthy? What would you change about this moment right 'now' so as to increase your happiness quotient/raise your vibrational energy?

Once again your mind will attempt to flood your head with countless images of all the things which you could do or obtain so as to spark up your life. Wow, if only I could win the lottery then all my problems would be solved – could be one thought which springs immediately to mind. But, with several more zeros attached to your bank balance then try to feel how much difference it would make to your life right now if this was the case. Imagine all that money in the bank and then feel how it would change your attitude towards life.

Your mind wants to convince you that it's necessary to have this money in 'actual fact' ( in its concept of reality ) in order that you can feel this new way - but this simply isn't true. You are in total command of your feelings and how you allow them to influence your perception of your world. You can change your energy whenever you have a mind to, but you choose not to. How you perceive your life to be right at this instant is within your power to change. Shifting your perspective is easy – but scary on a mental level. So lets delve deeper into this new pathway which you are considering treading.

Just visualize this for a moment. After you having finished reading this message, you hop into your car and set off along the route into town. You take a left at the junction while thinking about whether or not to call the bank and then stop at the traffic lights after having decided to look for a different job. You head off towards the mall and stop at the drive-through so as to grab a bite to eat. You pull back out onto the highway and take the junction past the park where you ride the elevated section as thoughts of what you're going to say to your partner, if they bring up the subject of your latest argument again, drift through your mind. Taking a left at the next junction, and then following the road past the river, you take another left and pull up at your front door.

You stop for a moment and stare at the property in front of you and wonder what the heck you're doing back home. You shake your head and drive off again. You take a left at the junction while thinking about whether or not to call the bank and then stop at the traffic lights after having decided to look for a different job. You head off towards the mall and stop at the drive-through so as to grab a bite to eat. You pull back out onto the highway and take the........wait! You say, I just did all that and I ended up back home. If I want to go somewhere else then I have to change my thinking and my visualization of my world so as to achieve something different. It's quite evident in this situation that a change of thinking must happen but for some reason it's not obvious when it comes to your way of looking at your world and your life. You have to go beyond the place where you are stuck, but this requires stepping outside of your self imposed limitations.

So let's do just that. Here is another scenario which temporarily takes you to another level of consciousness. She how it feels for you.

You walk out of the place where you live only to find that there is a man waiting for you and he is standing by a kind of odd looking SUV. On the side it's got a logo saying OFCOURSEWECAN MUNICIPAL TAXI SERVICE *-> Our Joy is Your Happiness ->*

You don't remember booking a ride, and certainly not from a company with that name, but it's been a long week and you could use a break; and anyway the guy looks quite friendly, smart and capable. He's smiling too and that brightens up your day into the bargain. You hop in and he heads off while driving straight through a rift in the space/time continuum, which you hadn't realized was there at the end of your block and must remember to contact your local representative about as soon as you get back, and then you appear in a slightly different world. It looks pretty much the same as the one you normally interact with but this one has an increasingly noticeable difference.

Traveling along your usual route to work, you notice that things are strangely quiet. There are no wailing police sirens or ambulance sirens where even fire trucks aren't screeching past you or coming up behind you while creating chaos in the traffic. Neither are there any open top or open windowed cars that are blasting out loud, pulsing music to its industrially deaf occupants. All the while the chatty driver has been telling you about his life over the last couple of days, like you are actually a member of his family who he wants to share his happiness with. The weather isn't that great, as usual, but somehow it doesn't seem to matter as what you're experiencing somehow gives you the impression that the sun is shining brightly down through a cloudless sky. It feels really nice and certainly something which you could quite easily get used to very quickly.

Can you imagine it? Are you in that vehicle with that friendly driver and experiencing the world in that way? Okay, let's go a little farther.

You pass many recognizable landmarks and even see some of your favorite places which you'd like to visit whenever the opportunity comes around again. Then you go past the spot where very often you see a police car parked up. Then you expect to see the local government building which turns out to be an art gallery. Suddenly you feel uncomfortable. Not so much because the location of the building may have changed, in this increasingly unfamiliar place, but the resonant energy of your mind wants to (needs to) be reassured of a presence.

You ask the driver where the local government building has moved to and he flips your mind into a state of panic by responding that he doesn't understand what you mean by the word 'government'. You are totally unprepared for this as it's incomprehensible to you that anyone could not know of this word or actually be without its presence in their society. It soon becomes apparent that he's not only never heard of the term government but has no idea of the concept either. And yet, here you are in the midst of a fully fledged, functional society with no one apparently at the helm. This is totally bewildering but, to the happy citizens who inhabit OFCOURSEWECAN, then it's the most natural thing in the world to them. They just see things in a different way to you.

Just by way of a little background information here, it may be interesting to note that OFCOURSEWECAN has now moved away from, and out of the influence of, its long term neighbor OMGWE'RESCREWED - which has changed course to rendezvous with APATHYISUS as it seems more attractive to them. Both planets have a similar breed of inhabitants who all seem to own fast food outlets, soft furnishing companies, giant plasma TV manufacturing plants or liquor/drug stores. They elect obscure people to govern them who don't know when to shut up, look cute and have no idea who voted for them but make every hollow promise they can think of before disappearing into the highly secretive world of Polly Ticks - who evidently is very wise and all knowing. They trust her without question and accept everything she says while not wanting to upset the status quo of their cozy lifestyle. The citizens of OFCOUREWECAN eventually discovered that, no matter how hard they tried, they just couldn't communicate with either planet as they had no way to translate the languages.

The common consciousness of OFCOURSEWECAN has always been one of - Why would we want anyone telling us what to do when we are quite capable of making our own beneficial choices and decisions? Not one of them could, or would, even want to contemplate being subject to the rules, regulations and commands of others. Those who don't even know them while having to live out their lives according to the directions and whims of strangers who would force them to accept some mysterious 'greater wisdom' and 'far-sightedness' which they had somehow been magically gifted with.

You, in contrast, cannot imagine how they live through not accepting this, but right in front of you, and all around you, is proof that it's not only possible but that it exists. The smiling driver asks if you would like to stay but your mind immediately jumps in to give you a huge list of reasons why this is totally out of the question. No! You have to get back to your world, where everything is familiar, so that you can function – normally (???). Even though it means going back to your apparently insoluble problems, it's actually preferable to being asked to change your thinking so as to fit in with a new energy paradigm; a different energy structure, a new appreciation.

So, the driver takes you back ( still smiling and chatting to you like a long lost relative ). You hop in your car, have the same thoughts, take the same route and end up back at your home again while wondering why life isn't working out for you.

Is this giving you a glimpse into where we're heading and if so, how do you feel about it?

This is the ride in front of you so it's maybe a good time to review its relative merits in terms of what we've said here and my previous messages. Does it feel right to you to do this? You have to 'feel' it if it's going to be of any benefit to you. Your 'guardian' sure as hell doesn't want you to go that way, while impatiently drumming its fingers as it waits for you to finish this message before scraping all these words into the moat; where they will hopefully stay undisturbed forever. Will you choose to keep this from happening. I sincerely hope so.

Sometime, somewhere, somehow you're going to have to let down the drawbridge and move out of the fortress if you're to stand any chance of experiencing a different energy and awareness perspective. You've been stuck where you are for a very long time so it's only natural to have reservations. But just remember the citizens of OFCOURSEWECAN who consider their way of life as being quite natural. Your mind is telling you firmly that this is simply pure fantasy but I ask you – the real you – to feel how it would be to live in a world such as theirs. Can you?

Here's something else which may appear somewhat scary. This a quote from spiritual wisdom – It is not possible to imagine something which, at some place in the Universe, does not exist. Just consider that for a moment. Whatever humankind dreams up then somewhere in the Universe it exists – how could it not? It's only energy after all. Just because your mind doesn't accept it, and insists on convincing you that it's simply a phantom, doesn't make it so. Your mind believes that yesterday and tomorrow 'exists' so what does that tell you?

To be a part of a world like OFCOURSEWECAN you would have to see life differently where you naturally accepted the principals of existing in a higher vibrational state by choosing to underpin every decision with the energy of love. This is the journey you are making now whether you are prepared for it or not. The Universe can lower the drawbridge for you but if you choose to stay huddled up in the unenlightened shadows behind the high, stone walls of your castle then there's nothing that anyone can do about it. You must be the one to make the choice as far as taking the first steps are concerned.

All I am intending to do with my messages for you is to influence your energy which you can then choose to allow to rise in its vibrational quality or not. It's up to you. If your present energy construct feels more comfortably familiar, and life is working out satisfactorily for you, then that's fine; it's your choice where I do not judge you for exercising your preference. You must live with the consequences of your choices whatever they may be. My only reiteration at this point would be to re-quote that if you want to see change then it will not come about if you keep doing the same thing - thinking the same way or using your energy in the same way. You must change this if you want to change your life.

Let's take a moment to consider something which may help you. Below I have listed the scale of human emotions as they correspond to their energy of vibration. You may have come across this before. Imagine, if you will that each of the items in the listing is assigned to the white notes of a piano keyboard; the bottom-most entry is inscribed on the lowest note and the topmost on the highest key. When love is present then the top key is being played and when fear is the experienced emotion then the bottom or lowest key is being played.

    Positive Expectation/Trust
In any one day can you get a feel for how many times you move around on this particular keyboard while your energy changed from one vibrational level to another. If those notes were to have been played then what would it have sounded like? Can you appreciate from this graphic illustration of your emotional energy how far you have to move from, say – 'Worry' - so as to get to - 'Optimism'? We're talking about sustainable states here and not transient excursions up and down. Hear the notes between the two points that I've highlighted and, in so doing, get a sense of how far apart they are. Remember also that it takes a lot of energy to cause the swing from one to another.

If this proves to be tricky for you then visualize plucking the note on a guitar and then putting into a big freezer. How long do you consider that it would take for the note to slow down and die away to nothing while the whole thing turned to a block of ice? Then, how long would it take to warm up and come back again? Changing your fundamental vibrational energy is similar. It takes a little time but given the warmth and encouragement of heartfelt love, as I am doing for you now, then it will happen.

Now let's move to a practical appreciation which you can apply to your life. We need to start building on what you have become aware of so that you can firstly bring it fully in to your awareness and then start using it. To head up the scale from Fear to Love looks like a hell of a climb but it's one that is well within your capability to do so. Remember, you started this journey in the vibration of love so there's no reason that you can't get back to it once gain, You simply have to trust your intuition to guide you while always being conscious to make your choices from the perspective of unconditional love. Then you need to make a habit out of it. I will help with this if you choose to follow my guidance.

I really am hoping to have stimulated a positive feeling in you at this point. I appreciate that this is a lot to take in but again I want to reassure you that you are more than capable of doing it. There is nothing that you cannot do if you really feel the limitless possibilities of potential which lie untapped within you. Always remember how powerful you are and never let anyone convince you otherwise.

So, you're having a bad day and it's been tricky to cope with it up to the point which you find yourself at, where something needs to be done about it. You have the need to feel better. What are your choices?

Pour yourself a drink? Roll a joint? Open up a pint of ice cream and not think about leaving any? How does this help? After all, they are only other forms of energy. The answer is that they are temporary and don't help at all.

Take alcohol. It's akin to what you use to propel your car with – so it's a useful analogy. They are both volatile substances which provide fuel, or energy, for you to use as you choose to. Alcohol in your body fires up your system and makes you feel better until it wears off, just as your car would run out of gas. Then you have to get more.

As we saw in my previous message, your car is an energetic capsule which you incorporate yourself into so as to command it to move you through space and time – by making choices. You put fuel into yourself in order to raise your vibration while making choices about what to do with it along the way. Your car moves you through space and time whereas the alcohol moves you up the scale of emotional vibration until you get to where you hoped it would take you – and maybe even beyond. You get out of your energy capsule after arriving at your destination in the same way as you exit your alcohol capsule while having traveled through an emotional landscape on the way. Both experiences leave you in the same energetic paradigm as which you entered it. Nothing has changed apart from the fact that you've added another experience to your circular journey which ended up bringing you back to your front door. You just went around in another circle and used up a bit more fuel (energy). All of this time your 'thoughts' were in charge while heavily influencing your choices.

Its easy to appreciate that your vehicle has no impact or lasting affect on your mood in that you take little notice of it. Because the effects of alcohol or drugs are more tangible, then you do notice them but there isn't any difference as regards the lasting impact on you. Drinking appears to lift you up but because you're not doing the lifting by virtue of your own will, then your ability to influence your own emotional vibrations is not enhanced. One the occasions when you feel awful, and at the lower end of your emotional scale, where a drink seems to be a realistic ( and easy ) choice, you only end up back at the same 'key' when the energy runs out. If you want to change this then you have to focus on changing the energy yourself. Then it will become permanent and you will leave all the lower 'notes' behind you.

Okay, so I hear you say, yes but how does this work in what I know and experience to be real life? How do I get through my day when I need a drink to do it? This is a real-life problem for me and one I have to face every day when I'm not reading your words and having to cope with life on my own. How do I do it? Where does love come in to all this? I don't get it. My mind won't let me see it so I don't feel that it's worthwhile even trying.

This is the classic trap and one which we have to be very sneaky, and very determined, to combat. Here's the plan.

Take a look back at the emotional scale which I introduced you to earlier on. Go through each one of the states and then feel what you are in harmony with when it comes to how you experience your life at this point on your journey. Don't choose how you feel right now but what, in general, sums up your attitude to life when you consider your underlying mood. You need to be honest about this as there is no point in fooling yourself or letting ego creep in to influence your choice. It's of no benefit in moving you forward.

Just sit with the list and allow yourself to review your recent journey. Which emotional energy vibration do you really feel expresses how you approach life on a day-to-day basis. This is something which you may need to come back to but when you have a sense of where you are then make a note of it.

Okay, good. So here's what I am suggesting that you put into practice from the moment that you finish reading this message. Having memorized the image of the piano scale while appreciating the various states of emotions which correspond to them, make it a point from now on to wait at least two or three minutes before acting on any emotional change which you are conscious of. Get into the habit of sensing the change in your emotional state and then visualizing the piano scale. While doing this, then allow yourself to realize how far down you've moved and what it will take to get you back up.

If you drop down into anger, fear or depression then give yourself chance to recover before reaching for the energetic crutches of modern society. If you have to, then you have to, but at least you'll have the awareness that soon you will be able to manage without them. Also, whenever you feel anger or the emotions of negativity then see how long you can hold off choosing to respond in a like manner while digging deep into your sensitive heart as you work out if it's at all possible for you to apply just a little bit of love to the situation. That may come simply in the form of choosing not to bite someone's head off. You'll be amazed at what kind of change this can bring about while also moving you back up the scale.

Through choosing not to react adversely to a bad situation then you are actually choosing to apply the energy of love to your emotional body in the same way as you put the gas into your car. Through doing so you will have affected your energetic state without the need for any synthetic substitute. You may well feel the need for a drink after doing this but primarily you will have been responsible for altering your emotional energy and this will greatly benefit you. Simply treating the drink as a reward will be a kind of halfway-house measure as long as you appreciate that it has played no useful part in addressing the situation which you found yourself in and then choosing to raise your vibration by acting out of love.

This is where we begin. This is where we implant the first substantial footprint into the undulating and uncharted sands of your desert pathway and on towards the oasis. You will have begun a new and exciting journey into a world which at present you have no concept of within the confused and convoluted limitations of your frantic mind. This aspect of yourself you must tame as it has got far too far out of control.

To quote Einstein – The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. We agree. We are now in the incipient stages of anticipating different results. The adventure has begun!


Next time we'll look further into how this new way of applying the necessary changes to your energy as well as adjusting your perceptions. In the meantime I would like you to imagine me there with you encouraging you on as often as you can. I have faith in you – how do you feel?

With love and light as always
