Balance For Mother Earth Leads To Balance For Us, Part 1

Mother Earth has tension in her these days - you know this. Earthquakes, other expressions of her personality are happening. For the most part these earthquakes are small but there are the big ones, the destructive ones. What can we do directly about that. I want to make a suggestion that you might attempt to do.

Do you know one of the reasons Mother Earth gets tense is because of the disparity between people - and by that I mean that some people are in great comfort and other people are struggling or even suffering.

I am not saying that this or that politic should be followed. I am not saying that some people are to blame - none of that. Lets rather take a different approach. Lets see how we can help Mother Earth to be more relaxed while at the same time we may be able to do something towards supporting our fellow beings.

To begin with lets do a living prayer by asking first that all of those energies that are most benevolent for you to be all round and about you so that you can relax and that your living prayer can do the most good. Wait a minute or so after that - a little less is alright.

Some of you will feel that energy and for others you might just get a tingling or some such thing.

Then I recommend you say the following. You might say, "I am asking that all those inequities between people that cause us to be out of balance or discomforted with each other now move towards a greater sense of balance in the most benevolent way for all beings."

Now you noticed that I didn't actually say anything in the living prayer, that I recommend you say, about Mother Earth directly but what was said at the end was "...for all beings." Mother Earth is a being - you know this.

So that's what I recommend you do to start with. Of course you will be working to improve the conditions of all beings to the best of your ability - I know many of you do that but this is something you can also do for I feel that the energy and the co-operation of all beings at the soul level is much more enhanced these days. I'll try to say more about that particular aspect as time goes on.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Gently Moving Past Inertia, Part 2


Last time I talked about something that Patrice had asked. This time I want to give a little true magic to help to bring this about a little better.

First go out to someplace on the land if you possibly can. If you live in a city where there isn't much land see if you can go to a park.

Try to find a place where no one is within 10 feet of you if it is a busy crowded city. If it is not so busy then try to have people further away. You may not always be able to accomplish that. You could if you like bring a friend and ask the friend to stand 30 or 40 or better yet 50 feet away from you even if you're out on the land someplace and that's not a park to help to keep people away from you - not forcefully, just gently.

Someone might ask, "What is that person doing?" They can make up a little story that's innocent. It's not always good to say, "They're doing magic." That will just make the person more curious eh. It can be simply that - they are doing a form of prayer - because true magic really is a form of prayer but it's active prayer where you help to bring about what it is that you are requesting and you enlist the aid of others - not only souls as we do in the case of living prayer as mentioned last time - meaning the souls of all beings, everything is alive and it's all ensouled but also you can enlist the aid as I've done before with true magic of the sun, the moon, the stars, other planets for these "beings" all function as a portion of the natural world and they know you - your soul, your very essence as its natural self and they will work with that natural self to help bring about in the most benevolent way possible the results you are requesting.

So this is what to do when you get out to that land. If it's private land make sure you have permission. If it's possible take off your shoes or wear shoes that do not have artificial soles. If they have leather soles that's fine but that's important.

If it's possible to do this without shoes on that's even better. It makes a physical contact with you and the Earth. If it's not safe to do that then some kind of soles that are of natural material would be good for your shoes.

Orient yourself towards the north to start and find a place on the land where you feel physically comfortable. The more relaxed and comfortable you are the more likely this will work but do the best you can there.

After you have oriented yourself towards the north look up into the sky. If it is daytime glance, with your eyes closed, in the general direction or where the sun is. If it is a cloudy day and the sun is covered by clouds of course you can have your eyes open if you wish.

If it is the nighttime then you may glance to where the moon is with your eyes open of course. It's up to you whether you wish to do this at day or night - I recommend the day but if you need to do it at night that's alright too. It will work either way.

Then raise your arms up so that they are in front of you - meaning bring your arms out in front of you so they are straight in front of you and then move your hands together with your palms touching and your fingers touching together (see above).

Then raise your arms, with your palms touching like that if you can, over your head and while they are raised like that make one complete rotation so that you turn around and are then facing the north again.

After you have done that you may bring your arms down slowly - separating them above your head, bringing them down very slowly along your sides with your arms stretched out straight away from each side and finishing up with your arms straight down by both sides and your palms touching the sides of your body.

Then say these words, "I am asking that the sun, the moon and all the friendly stars who know me in my true natural self help to bring about a co-ordination now with my natural being and Earth's personality's natural being to co-operate and support my need for..." (then you mention with 1 word only that which you need as referred to last time in the last post - it must be only one word so you will have to be creative perhaps) "...in the most benevolent way for me and for all beings."

Then wait. Stay in that position if you can for about a half a minute or a minute - don't check your watch, just make your best guess.

Then make 1 step forward towards the north - and you understand all this time your arms are at your sides, your palms touching your sides straight down - make another complete rotation to the left finishing up facing towards the north as you have been. Then remain in that position for at least a couple of minutes. If it's a little longer that's okay. Try to make it at least a couple of minutes - meaning 2. Try not to think about anything.

If there are man-made objects in the distance, look towards the sky because man-made objects always contain the energy of those who built them to say nothing of those who may touch them or come in contact with them - this is good to remember in general when doing these things.

Then after you have waited that time look down towards the ground and see your feet on the ground. Try not to think. Then as you look down towards the ground you may look slightly to your left towards the ground and take 3 steps to the left.

Remember - do not turn and take three steps forward to the left. Remain in your position and take 3 steps, as you might say - side steps, to the left. You can look towards the ground.

If it is nighttime make sure that there is some form of illumination nearby so that you are safe where you are stepping.

Remain there facing towards the north for another minute or two - it's up to you but at least a minute. Then take another 3 steps, side steps again, to the left.

Then you may turn, always turning to the left, towards the direction where you need to go but don't take that exact direction. Walk straight to where you need to go in a way that curves around the land you were on - meaning if you need to go in that direction give a wide berth to the land you were standing on.

Don't worry about it if any animals or dogs or cats in the area or any other kind of animals happen to fly through that area or walk through that area - that's fine - they're natural beings - nothing to worry about there but wait in the general area for about 5 minutes to try to keep other human beings from walking in that area.

It will not disturb the magic that you have requested but it might cause them to get slightly dizzy - not so that they would fall down, not so that they would stumble into a tree or anything but they might lose their way a bit - forget something. Maybe they were going to the store for a quart of milk - they could forget something. They'll go to the store, they'll get other things, they'll forget the quart of milk - it's the energy you see.

The energy is focused on creating what you have requested. So try to keep people away for 5 minutes. That's a good thing to remember for the future though I will not always say this. It's a good thing to remember in case you get the feeling to do that.

Remember, don't be forceful about it. Say that - if someone comes up you can say, "Would you mind walking around me and this space for a moment. It has to do with a prayer I just said." And usually people will do that. If they brush you off and walk through the space then you've done what you can.

Most likely this will not come up but it's advice that I suggest to you so you can keep in mind that one attempts to honor all beings. You never know what soul will be helping you to bring about what you have requested. Very often they are people you don't know and have never met and occasionally it will involve people that you do know.

Remember - after you do these things, these true magic's, don't go around talking about it. You can talk about true magic in general if you feel like it but don't go around talking about what you have requested. It will tend to dilute the potential of it happening - something good for you knowing.

That's why people who do magic like this are often considered to be secretive. It's not that they're trying to prevent people from knowing how to do the true magic but rather they are trying to maximize the impact of the benevolent things they are asking for - you see. That is often a very reasonable explanation for things that seem to be mysterious.

After that 5 minutes or so you can continue on with your life and do what you wish. Try to - when you do true magic any day - try to do things that are comfortable, pleasant.

Go out to eat with friends, take your dog for a walk, something like that. It's not a good time to be watching scary movies or things like that because you will find that you are actually feeling very open and almost a little vulnerable. That will pass within 24 hours but it's something to keep in mind.

If you have a job that is intense or even, how can we say, demanding then try to do such a thing as this on a weekend or at a time when you know you'll have the next day off. That's what I suggest.

I wish you well in this endeavor and remember - this is not something you can do only once for something that you need. I am suggesting you do it once for the thing that you need that I have expanded on and discussed in the last post and this post to a degree but it is also something that can be easily adapted to requesting something for the general public or for all peoples or for all beings.

Use your imagination for that. Remember - imagination is the divine part of the mind but we must use it in benevolent ways and not only fantasize about things that can be. Let us begin to bring these benevolent things that can be into reality.

If you find that this request that you have made with this true magic begins to move off of that place of inertia and opportunities begin to show up then take the physical acts that are necessary to take. Move forward, speak, do and try to keep it benevolent - in other words - good for you and good for others.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight. video

Gently Moving Past Inertia, Part 1

Patrice has brought up an interesting question:


Yes Robert,
That is a big issue...I am having workshops about the use of imagination and too many students use imagination as a drug against action...and those who move to the action step get very good results...
but fear of failure is an important aspect...How to work on fears of action...? An important question I think.

Blessings

Patrice


This difficulty, defined by the word inertia, is actually reflective of a great deal going on in our times.

We know that we all have things we like to do - pleasures yes. We have to work, we have to do things we don't always like to do but there are pleasures and this often helps to sustain us through the difficult moments of life or even a long drawn out - things we must do that is more of a duty.

And so not unlike other situations where we might grow dependent upon this behavior or that behavior, perhaps even a food or possibly some other form of stimulant or relaxant, we become dependent on something that we were born with - some of us do eh - and that's our imaginations to fulfill those seemingly unreachable qualities of our lives that we so desire to have.

Sometimes these things are impossible to have and still have the good parts of our life and sometimes if we did act in the way we imagine we or others would be hurt - perhaps badly. And so we fulfill ourselves very often in these desires with imaginations or fantasies.

In some cases I say this is a good thing because those circumstances that might hurt others or hurt ourselves - that would not be something so desirable. Oh perhaps yes, a moment of happiness but I'm sure there are a great many people who can attest to the fact that that moment wasn't worth it in the long run and I'm sure you all either know someone like that or perhaps you can even attest to that yourself.

So what to do about the inertia that keeps us from acquiring something that is benevolent or even generating something that is benevolent for others or both.

Very often what is helpful is to make some kind of a record. You don't have to say - if you're shy about it - you can write down or make a statement of some sort, even speak out loud if nobody's around - you can whisper if there are people around. Say, "I would really like to do..." and then fill in the words.

Make sure it's something benevolent - meaning something that would be good for you and good for others - alright? So you might have to modify your desire so that it fits into that qualification and I'll tell you why I am stating that as a qualification.

It isn't strictly for morals and values though that be a valuable thing - it is also because if you want to have co-operation from other souls, other beings, all beings here on Earth and perhaps even beyond this must be something that is good for you and good for others.

So state it or write it down in some simple way. Don't justify it when you write it or say it out loud, don't justify it at all. Just say - I really need to (blank) and fill it in or if you're writing it down - I really feel such a desire to (then write it in). If you want to and you're not feeling comfortable about keeping such a written thing around then just say it out loud or whisper it - that's fine.

Then what I recommend is that you do some small step towards that. By saying it out loud you've already done a small step towards it. You've made it a portion of your physical life.

You see when you fantasize about something you might not actually be able to take it beyond that point because in a fantasy everything works out well you see - but in real life you know, fantasies do not always play out that way. Of course you know this - but when you state something out loud you see, even as a whisper it becomes a portion of your physical life because you're using your mouth, you're using the tones that you can make or in the case of someone who is writing you're moving your hand and arm - you're doing something physical.

You're taking it from within and you're bringing it out into your physical world in some way. When you do this then that's a good first step.

It's not enough but you'd be surprised how much giving yourself permission to make it a portion of your physical world will feel better. You'll actually physically feel better because it's a form of commitment you see. You're taking it from the fantasy world - alright - to the physical world as a first step.

Then consider as a second step - what can I do to actually bring this about - and it is up to you. Try to do something that would be the next preceding step by preceding something that you would do before you are able to do whatever it is you so desire.

It could be something simple such as if you have a very close friend or companion you could confide in them some portion or even all of your need and desire.

If you do so precede that by saying, "I am attempting to create a pathway to something I need so as my close friend I am asking you to allow me to speak that need to you. Please allow me to go through it all and be done with what I have to say before you say something and I also give you permission to do the same with me if you need something. Please know that this is a step along my process." That's what you could say if you wish.

Perhaps you go to church and pray. You can include it in your prayers but if you do, try to be sitting someplace where you are not near others. If they don't understand why tell them that you have to have a private conference with God - they'll understand and at the same time tell them that it's okay if they do that themselves when they feel the need. It's always good to give permission for something that you need permission for as well.

If you don't go to church then you could perhaps go out someplace on the land if you can, preferably not paved land, and again whisper quietly or say out loud if no ones around what it is you want and need. Put it as simply as possible.

I'd like to give you a living prayer for that and the living prayer might be just exactly this. I recommend you say, "I am asking that that which I hope for, wish for and have fantasized about materialize for me now with all of the co-operation and help that I need from others whether I know these beings or not to bring about the most benevolent outcome and form of this that I need so much."

If you wish you can add a couple of words if there's one or two words that define what it is you are requesting. You can add those one or two words but remember you must keep them benevolent.

It can't be revenge or something like that because you can be certain in the case of something like that that there will be souls that will object - and sometimes they are souls that you would never guess would object.

They could be angels, they could be guides, could be Creator, could also be other beings who might be effected by that revenge - plants, animals, other human beings, other souls in general. So...don't make it revenge.

Ask for what you want and need even if it seems to be impossible. Sometimes souls will do the most unusual things and create what amounts to an opening for you in order to have what you want and need.

Next time I'll give you a little true magic you can do to take it a step further but eventually you will have to do various steps that will help you along the way to achieve what you want.

Do talk to a councilor if you can or an advisor that you trust who is discreet and will not tell others. Perhaps they will have a suggestion as well.

Goodlife.

Creation Energy For You Is Very Strong Now

Have you noticed? There's a lot of energy around now supporting creation and by creation I mean creations that a human being might have. Thoughts, inspirations yes but also fears.

This is a time when it's particularly important to pay attention to what you are thinking because your thoughts sometimes play out in a format in your mind that are based on fears - and I'm not trying to tell you that your fears aren't warranted. What I am saying is that this is the best time now to focus on what you would like to happen.

Don't excessively fantasize because it can give you the rewards and happiness that you often need but in a fictional format. Rather just try to shift your energy into something that is benign and benevolent. Try to see the good in life around you.

It's alright to be discerning and know what is for you and what is for others and it's equally alright to not discard your street smarts but it is very important these days especially to maintain your balance in the benevolent.

Try to maintain that focus where you are feeling good about yourself and about your life - perhaps feeling optimistic about what could be in a rewarding and comfortable way for you and those you love and care about.

Right now for the next 3 to 5 weeks we'll be in an intense period where creation energy is very strong. It is an opportunity for those who are ready to have events, circumstances, people and other things fall into alignment with who you are, what you want, what you need and how you would like to contribute to a better society and world.

It is not a time of manipulation of people. These circumstances that could support what you want and need in a benevolent way will happen voluntarily by people. Most people will not have to make any great effort, it'll just be a minor thing that they will do but the cumulative effect - you understand the overall effect can be very good for you and many others.

So try to stay focused in a benevolent place during this time especially. It will help. Goodlife.
