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
