NEED TO LIGHT A FIRE UNDER YOURSELF?!

Stalling in your growth process? Holding onto grudges? Still indulging in victimhood?

WATCH THIS!

ARE YOU BECOMING RUTHLESS ABOUT YOUR SOLITUDE?!

Last year, I wrote a post entitled, "WANT A BETTER RELATIONSHIP? ENJOY SOME SOLITUDE!" In that post, I talked about the importance, not only for creative purposes, but for the betterment of one's relationships, and life in general, of spending "quality time" alone. 

Well, in this last quarter of 2014, making the choice to have a good amount of solitude in your life has risen to the level of an imperative. As one's vibrational frequency rises, which is occurring in general to everyone, but at an accelerated rate for those who've awakened and are actively pursuing their path through the ascension process, it becomes increasingly necessary to protect one's personal energy field from vibrations of a lower frequency. In other words, you can't hang out with friends, family members, colleagues, etc., whose vibration is lower than yours, without feeling some negative effects. And right now, those effects are manifesting at a faster and faster rate.

I am hearing more and more from the awakened people I work with and who read this blog that they are finding more and more people, places and situations intolerable.

Here's a passage from an amazing book, ONENESS, by Rasha:

"The tendency to distance oneself helps to create a vibrational buffer and is a self-protective mechanism that one adopts instinctively. For, until you become adept at stabilizing the accelerating levels of vibration, you are susceptible to the variations in vibrational frequency with which you are surrounded and the extremes of experience that can result. One becomes acutely aware of the effects of certain environments and certain individuals upon one’s manifestation of life experience. And one begins to make choices that others may consider radical. One often becomes ruthless in the curtailing of associations and activities that no longer serve one’s highest interests.The tendency becomes increasingly that of choosing aloneness over the companionship of others that had always been taken for granted as a way of life. One comes to regard one’s own company as profoundly gratifying, and the time one chooses to spend interacting with others begins to diminish. One becomes attuned to one’s own inner world and is drawn to withdrawing to that space at every opportunity.”

Whoa, PL! Are you saying that I shouldn't go to my family's for Thanksgiving? That I should quit my job? Ditch my old college friends? Not ride the subways?!

Well... yes. And no. 

The yes is this - 

If you attempt to lower your own vibration in order to maintain a relationship or spend significant amounts of time in an environment that's not up to where you're at consciousness-wise, you're going to feel out of balance and toxic. At a certain point, you will have no choice but to distance yourself from that person, place or thing, or invite a crisis.

The no is implied in this sentence from Oneness above -

"For, until you become adept at stabilizing the accelerating levels of vibration, you are susceptible to the variations in vibrational frequency with which you are surrounded and the extremes of experience that can result."

In other words, the need to be "ruthless" in distancing yourself from others with low vibrations is temporary. Once you become stabilized in your ascension process, and are no longer relating to others as other than reflections of you, you will be able to go anywhere and be with anyone without your level of vibration or consciousness being affected. Most likely, however, you will only choose to do so as a teacher or guide.

For now, though, most of you who are in a transitional phase of your process, will have to take measures to protect your energy field. So, besides staying home alone or living in the woods, what does that look like? 

It looks like this -  whenever you choose to mingle with a variety of vibrations, you take a few minutes through breath and meditation (in advance is best) to first clear your own field of any low vibrations, and fill it up with the highest frequency of love and light possible. Then, you do the same thing for the vortex and field of energy you're entering, clearing out the negative, low vibes and filling up the room and the energy fields of the people around you with higher vibes. [NOTE: If you're able to at least consider that everyone is a reflection of a part of you, it will help with the process.]

You can do this, folks. And the results will be nearly instantaneous if you're sincere. 

Of course, the results will also be nearly instantaneous if you don't do this.

Here's an example - 

Earlier this year, I was heading to a gathering in my car, to a situation that I knew was going to be filled with low vibrations. I neglected to take those few minutes to clear and protect my field, etc., and - no joke - I pull into the driveway at the home of said gathering... and my car catches on fire! I instantaneously realized what I'd forgotten to do.  

Turns out it was just a hot bulb that had come loose and fell on some plastic, creating a lot of smoke, but I gratefully accepted the reminder and did my inner work before I went into the house. And I've never forgotten since. Whew!

WANT A BETTER RELATIONSHIP? ENJOY SOME SOLITUDE!

A few months ago, I posted an excerpt from an article about a book, "DAILY RITUALS: HOW ARTISTS WORK", that extolled the virtues for creativity of frequent walking.

Another section of the book talks about the equally important need for solitude in the creative life:

"If you want to do prolonged creative work, you're going to need to figure out a way to avoid the demands of society, at least some of the time. Most artistic endeavor requires stretches of solitude. That's why so many artists get up super early or stay up super late—only then, when the rest of the world is asleep, are they guaranteed not to be interrupted by family, friends, visitors, or telephone calls."


"Anne Rice, when she’s writing a book, says she needs four hours of unbroken time each day, and that to get this, she must be ruthless about turning down appointments and social obligations. 'Because you won’t get those four hours if you’re spending most of the day worried about getting to an appointment and back,' she said. 'A lot of people don’t understand it. They think, ‘Well, I only want to see you for three hours. Why can’t you write the rest of the day?’ But it doesn’t work like that. What you have to do is clear all distraction. That’s the bottom line."

Last summer, I wrote from Fire Island about the importance of solitude and separation, and not only for the purposes of creative work, but also for the purposes of self-work and for the health of our relationships. Here's Mark Epstein, my favorite Buddhist psychotherapist, on the subject:

"Clinging is as much of a problem in lovemaking as in the rest of life. In order for sexual relations to be deeply satisfying, there must be a yielding of this clinging in a manner that actually affirms the unknowability and separateness of the loved partner. It is the peculiar convergence of awe and appreciation with pleasure and release that characterizes the best sexual experiences. Separate and together cease to be mutually exclusive and instead become reciprocally enhancing and mutually informative. There is wisdom in this state, not just raw instinct."

So, folks, to foster the health of your creative life and your interpersonal life... spend some quality time alone!

TODAY'S "ZEN MEDITATION" QUOTE!

“You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day... unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.” 

Are you...
                                This guy?
                       
                                  or....

                                              This guy?! 

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO... MURPHY'S LAW?! (WITH AN ADDENDUM ON "INSTANT MANIFESTATION!")

Last January, I wrote a post entitled "IT'S 2013. WHICH EARTH ARE YOU ON?!"  in which I outlined the new rules for 5D.

The first rule was: "Murphy's Law is reversed."

So, how's it going?

Are you aware that Murphy's Law has been reversed? Have you fallen in love? Arrived to the next level in your career? Gotten in better shape physically or healed a part of your body? Have you started therapy, or had a breakthrough in your self-work? Maybe you've noticed that just a bunch of smaller things seem to be working out or falling into place? Food tastes better, colors brighter, orgasms stronger?

Yes? Well... congratulations! Keep going. Things are just warming up. The Higher Powers That Be are calling this time we're entering a "Golden Age," unlike any other that has occurred on Earth. And in this final quarter of 2014, we are rapidly accelerating to a time and place of "instant manifestation!" You can search the web for any number of articles, channeled and otherwise, or read Oneness, by Rasha, or Breaking The Habit Of Being Yourself, by Dr. Joe Dispenza for detailed information about this phenomenon, but the bottom line is - it's here. We're there!

(HERE is a good channeled lecture on the subject.)

Instant manifestation: "I desire..." DING! It appears. "I would like to..." BOOM! You got it! "How about...?" NO PROBLEM! You're there.

What, you ask? You still feel stuck? In crisis? Things in general still seem to just suck? Well, you see, instant manifestation includes your habitual addictions to negative emotions and your lower self desires for pain and suffering, too.

Instant manifestation: "I can't catch a break." DONE! Parking ticket. "I don't have enough money." BINGO! You're over your credit limit! "I hate my body!" OUCH! Illness, disease, accidents...

Look, folks, Murphy's Law being reversed (i.e. - "Everything that can go right will go right, if you let it.") is the way it is in 5D. Not just for some, but for everyone who's made it here... and intends to stay here.

Sorry, no exceptions!

So, then, how to explain your particular misery?

You're holding onto the beliefs, attitudes, fears and maneuvers of your old 3D, dualistic, linear time-based ego.

And that's not allowed in 5D!

I mean, you create your own reality, of course, so you can technically hold onto your ego's erroneous ideas, etc., but if you insist on doing so, you're going to rather instantly manifest yourself as a "Whatever Happened To...?" person to those of us staying on for the 5D ride.

Listen. You're here. You made it. Two years ago, between the Solstice of 2012 and the end of that year, was your moment to get on the train to 5D. Or not. If you're reading this, you got on the train.

This is it. You've arrived. From now on, everything that can go right will go right, if you let it. In fact, everything that can go right will go right... even if you try not to let it.

What?

Yes. I am seeing things falling into place in many people's lives, as described above - making more money, being in better health, creative opportunities manifesting, help and guidance coming from all directions - and yet, some of said people are still refusing to experience joy about it, still attached to feelings of resentment, frustration, anger, and still desperately searching for something to complain about as if complaining were the most delicious item on the menu. An incredible dessert cart has arrived and you're asking for canned spam??

If you are one of those people who've been insisting on one last serving of suffering, read Eckhart Tolle's "The New Earth," or the FPL post "Hey! Get the Ego Out of Your 'I," or anything from this page to help you get a handle on why your ego is obsolete.

And in terms of how to hold your vibration at a level that is aligned with the vibration of 5D, aligned with your highest excitement and greatest good, I have three words for you: Practice. Practice. PRACTICE!

Yes. This is a time for focusing, meditating and creating consciously. (HERE is another good channeled lecture on that subject. And read or reread the FPL post: "THE POWER OF DOING NOTHING...POWERFULLY!")

And while you're practicing, have a little creme brulee... or chocolate mousse... or... mmmm... choices, choices, choices.



MORE ON "THE PLACEBO EFFECT IS REAL!" (HINT: IT STILL IS!)

Read THIS - "Man Who Wasn't Expected To Walk Is Now An Accomplished Athlete," - then read or reread the FPL post below. 

Key line from the above story: "His doctors did not see a good future for him." 



Way to go, Doc!

Read on - 

Many people have heard of the "placebo effect," and even mainstream medical professionals and scientists have long known of the reality that patients given an ineffective treatment often improve anyway, simply because they expected to get better. About half of American doctors in a new survey say they regularly give unwitting patients placebo treatments - substance-free pills and fake pseudo-surgery procedures -  that shouldn't technically help their condition, but in fact do help. 

Okay, stop, breathe and listen to it again: patients given a fake or ineffective treatment often improve anyway, simply because they expect to get better. 

This is one of the truths about everything that changes everything. Right? I mean, it's really the most simple deductive reasoning. If a person's belief in something - a water pill, fake surgery, praying, whatever, or simply believing in a particular doctor's ability to heal you - can actually cause cells and molecules to rearrange themselves, then we have hard evidence that we create our reality from our beliefs.

Okay... so we must be rapidly switching over from the mechanistic slash, burn and drug approach that health professionals have been using for centuries to a system in which doctors and nurses are trained to work with their patients' beliefs instead, yes?

No. Or at least, not yet. Why not? 

Well, partly because the scam of drugs, surgery and radiation is big business and people in those businesses make big bucks off of the many young and baby souls who want to be taken care of by an all-powerful father figure, no matter how abusive or exploitive in reality said big daddy's are. 

Secondly, the name of the 3D game we've been playing for millennia here on Earth is: "Shit Happens!" And it's actually quite a "fun" game. You see, in the Shit Happens Game, we never know what's going to occur because we're unconscious of the fact that we're creating our experiences in every moment. On top of which, we have amnesia about our own eternal nature. So, everything we experience is a big and, very often, scary surprise.

"Oh, what do you know? I just inherited a million dollars!" Or... "Wow, the person I have a crush on has a crush on me, too!" Or... "I can't believe my husband cheated on me!" "Oh shit! I just got fired from my job!" "What? I have cancer? How could that be?!"

And so on. One slammin' surprise after another, sometimes happy ones, sometimes not so much, but what a ride! Yeah, life in 3D beats Space Mountain at Disneyworld hands down. Of course, Space Mountain is a perfect representation of 3rd dimensional consciousness - who knows if that roller coaster is going to go off the rails this time or not?! Woohoo!!

So, yes, the placebo effect is real. We create our health or dis-ease from our beliefs. And yes, you could become a conscious creator of the events in your life, knowingly deciding and manifesting what you would like to experience each moment of each day. But, you say, what would be the excitement or the challenge in that? Conflict, obstacles, adversaries... overcoming these on a constant basis is what gets us going, right?

Well, I don't know about you, but I'm ready to experience the challenge of deciding in each moment of health and vitality what I would like to create, what I would like to enjoy, what new pleasure I would like to be stimulated by, what new information I'd like to download from the galactic consciousness. I'd like to keep pushing the boundaries of beauty, music, sexuality, abundance and wisdom.

I've been to Space Mountain, folks. Helluva ride, but you know... been there done that. Threw up. Now, I'm taking the 5D challenge, and instead of seeing how many drops and curves I can handle, I'm checking out how much bliss, joy and pleasure I can tolerate.

TODAY'S "THINGS CAN'T FIND YOU IF YOU'RE NOT HOME" QUOTE!


"It's only when you invalidate whatever your process has been that you actually add more time. Many of you are impatient to be somewhere other than where you are and that's exactly what makes you take so long. You really don't need to be impatient- the only reason you are impatient is because you think you need to be patient.  It's because you're not enjoying where you are right now- so the sooner you allow yourself to let where you are right now to be exactly what it needs to be, the sooner you validate the present- then you enjoy the present- because if you're enjoying the present you don't desire to be anywhere else. Because no where else is any better, it's just different. And as soon as you stop needing to be somewhere other than the now you will find your life accelerating, because something else will than be able to come through you, through the present. Things can't find you if you're not home! The only place you exist is in the present- so the more you focus on 'where I'd like to be in the future…where I was in the past…' the less you are in the NOW the less likely it is that things that need to find you will find you and the slower things will take."

THE POWER OF DOING NOTHING... POWERFULLY!

Are you discovering the power of doing nothing? Many people are.

Remember the frequently referred to FPL post from January of 2013 - "IT'S 2013! WHICH EARTH ARE YOU ON?!" - in which the new rules of 5th Dimensional Consciousness (5D) were outlined? Right up top was Rule #1: "Murphy's Law Is Officially Reversed." (In other words, in 5D, "everything that can go right, will go right... if you let it.")

Well, a year and a half later, many FPL readers, and people I know and work with, have been experiencing this new rule at work in the practical experiences of their everyday lives. So much so, in fact, that complaints are coming up in sessions that more or less boil down to: "It's too easy!" "I didn't actually do anything!" "Things just fell into place!" "Things just worked out!" Etc.

Sounds funny, right? But the truth is, synchronicity ("the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection," according to the dictionary) is the way of the Universe. There are no true coincidences, and this has always been the way things worked, only now, in 5D, we're becoming aware of it, and so becoming able to call upon it for manifestation purposes in our lives.

Many people call these synchronistic events "miracles," but here's my favorite quote on miracles:

"Miracles are the result of nature unimpeded."

Get that? Reread it:

"Miracles are the result of nature unimpeded."

In other words, things "working out" for your greatest good, for your highest excitement, for your fulfillment and self-actualization, even in ways you couldn't predict or imagine specifically, is just... natural! You don't have to do anything in the sense of forcing, willing, demanding, pleading or insisting, all approaches rooted in the ego, of course. You see, it's the ego complaining that things are "too easy," because it knows it is out of a job in 5D. It knows no other way than struggling, battling, overcoming, winning or losing, etc. Then, onto the next contest. So 3D!

But there are actually things to do in 5D. There are actions to take. It's not a passive creative process. But it looks different than the old way. The "doing" required to make things happen in 5D looks more like this:

Clear - Intend - Let go - Follow-up.

Clear your consciousness of the remnants of 3D, egoic thinking and beliefs and suppressed feelings in the body;
Intend for yourself in your meditations whatever it is you truly desire, and imagine it happening;
Let go by employing the energy of allowing and receiving, without expectations or fear;
Follow-up with action when your Higher Self and the Universe give you signs and create opportunities for you.

One of my favorite books and movies, as many FPL readers know, is "The Legend of Baggar Vance," by Steven Pressfield.

Here's Baggar:

“There's a perfect shot out there tryin' to find each and every one of us... Now it's somewhere... in the harmony... of All That Is... All That Was... All That Will Be... All we got to do is get ourselves out of its way, to let it choose us.


Thanks, BV!





THE "NOCEBO" EFFECT?!

You really have to laugh at the medical establishment and the scientific community. When it comes to foot-dragging on making obvious conclusions (they call it a need for "further study"), these folks are the champs.

Here's an excerpt from a piece on how pessimism can effect healing that "isn't nearly as well studied," according to its author, as the placebo effect, which scientists "already know is real."

Really?!

"Pessimism can override the effectiveness of even powerful treatments. You've heard of the placebo effect, the healing power of positive belief. This is the 'nocebo' effect, the flip side, almost its evil twin. And while the self-fulfilling prophecy of negative thinking isn't nearly as well studied, some scientists say it's time for doctors to start paying a lot more attention to their patients' outlook. 'We all know that many treatments work for some people but not for others,' says neuroscientist Dr. Randy Gollub of Massachusetts General Hospital. Scientists already know the placebo effect is real. They can measure it in studies that compare real drugs to dummy pills, where those given the fakes have noticeable improvements to pain and other symptoms."

HERE'S a link to an FPL piece on the placebo effect.

Come on, Doc. You're catching up.

STRESS KILLS WAY MORE OFTEN THAN TIGERS!

An avid, and wise, FPL reader linked me to the Chopra Center website, and she said this to me: "The topic on Stress reads like you wrote it!"

Hey, maybe Deepak got the wording from me, or maybe I read his thoughts in advance because I've been using the exact analogy of the tiger for years. Either way, the Truth is the Truth, and everyone has access to it.

Here's the passage from Deepak:  

How the Body Works with Stress

Most of us aren’t even aware how much fear rules our lives, but our bodies reflect this truth. While fear is designed to be a healthy survival mechanism that triggers the fight-or-flight stress response when your life is in danger, the body can’t tell the difference between being chased by a tiger and having fearful thoughts about work, relationships, or money. Whether you’re about to be a tiger’s lunch or you’re having a fear-based thought about an imagined future, a stress response is activated, and the body is filled with stress hormones like cortisol and epinephrine.
But here’s the real kicker. The body is beautifully equipped with natural self-repair mechanisms that know how to fight cancer, prevent infection, ward off heart disease, and retard aging. But these self-repair mechanisms are turned off every time the body is in stress response. This wouldn’t be a problem if your body was only in stress response once or twice a week, since stress responses are only meant to last 90 seconds beyond when the threat to your life is over.
But this is not what happens. Modern-day humans experience over 50 stress responses per day—most of them stemming not from real threats to your life but from thoughts about imaginary threats that will most likely never come true.

Really.


TODAY'S "ONENESS" QUOTE!


"There is no place in the transcendent consciousness for any of the baggage you may still be carrying. All of the 'shoulds' and 'shouldn'ts' that may have dominated your consciousness are to be released and left at this crossroad."
(Rasha)

TODAY'S "UNTETHERED SOUL" QUOTE!

“It’s actually a shocking realization when you first notice that your mind is constantly talking. You might even try to yell at it in a feeble attempt to shut it up. But then you realize that’s the voice yelling at the voice:” 
(Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself)

THE BEST PIECE OF CHEESECAKE EVER!

Have you noticed anything happening to your 5 senses? Is your sense of smell or taste becoming more acute, perhaps? Are you hearing overtones when you're singing in the shower, or subtle music in the wind? Maybe you're seeing halos of color around people, animals and plants?

Has your experience of time seemed to be slipping away from you, forgetting what time or even what day it is often? Do good days seem to be lasting longer, while hump or grump days seem to be waning? 

Does your memory seem to be fading, while your ability to focus is improving.

Stress levels down, even though you're very busy? Energy levels up, even though your nighttime sleeping is erratic and you need frequent naps? Weight down, even though you're eating whatever you desire?

How are your orgasms? Your tennis game? Better than ever?

Your financial situation? Money coming easily, maybe even out of nowhere sometimes, with less and less "hard" work. Or is your bank account empty, but yet for some unknown reason, you're not worried about it?

Have apparent calamities turned into splendid godsends, somehow?

Is the elapsed time between desiring something and manifesting it shortening? In fact, have you experienced manifesting something before you even put it out there?

Welcome to the upside of the "Ascension Process."

Yes, you've been going through the symptoms - the purges and cleanses, revisiting old anxieties and fears and habits... But something else is happening, too, isn't it?

You're having more peak experiences.

"This is the best meal I've ever had!" "This is the most money I've ever made!" "My husband and I have been having really great, deep talks... and amazing sex!" "This has been the perfect day!"

How many times in the course of your week do you use the words: "best," "most," "great," "perfect?" Well, get used to it. As I've written before, if you're reading this, you're in 5D. You made it. And if you continue the work that got you here - letting go of your old beliefs and fears, unblocking your physical and emotional bodies, and retiring your ego - and if you steadfastly engage in a practice to dismantle your old reflexes, judgments and habitual thought patterns in favor of new, positive ones, without judgment, and you do whatever it takes to keep your frequency and vibrations up - then this is going to be a magnificent ride.

We are rapidly approaching a time of near instant manifestation, folks, where your thoughts and feelings create your reality in the relative blink of an eye, and with the full force of 5th Dimensional consciousness behind it.

Now, mind you, if you're still indulging the old ways, want to sniff that childhood "blankie" one more time, pay homage to the familiar shame-based judgments, prideful arrogances or fearful imaginings, well, the manifestation will still be fast and furious.

It's up to you... but me? Right now, I'm going to have the best lemon ricotta cheesecake I ever had!

This?

Or this?!

GET RID OF YOUR STUFF... QUICK!

Okay, here's a bit of sock-'em-in-the-gut news that came in on the psychic airwaves yesterday during a very powerful channeling session.

You have read on this blog many times that you create your own reality. Some may still not understand that this statement is meant literally, not figuratively, but even physicists these days can readily tell you that it is consciousness that directs the energy which gives form to matter. (For an even more "scientific" understanding of this process read Jane Roberts channeling "Seth" in the mind-expanding book, "The Nature of Personal Reality").

Furthermore, said reality is not created in a static way, like "There, I created a chair and it's done." No. That chair is being created continuously by you, as long as you choose to experience having it. In other words, all that surrounds you is being created by you constantly, moment to infinitesimal moment, to the degree that you are aware of "having" your creations around you. And guess what?

That takes energy!

And plenty of it. Yep. So, here's the shocker delivered yesterday about you and your stuff - Get ready hoarders! - When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you do, before the bathroom, before coffee, every morning, is recreate all your stuff!

That's right. All that you're used to having around you, all that you expect to be there, has to be created as soon as you awaken from your vacation in the spirit world known as sleep. And that is another reason why you're so exhausted. Those clothes you never wear, but keep in your closet just in case, the books and magazines you never read, but think you might one day, old tacky jewelry, trinkets and trash alike, all of it. Even that chair you never sit in. All of it has to be created by your consciousness... until you decide, literally, to let go of it. That's one of the reasons vacations are so relaxing, because we go to a new environment and leave most of our stuff behind, so our consciousness can be freer to experience the now without the clutter.

So, look around you, folks. Everything you see is the result of an expenditure of your creative energy. If you're too tired to finish that screenplay, or to start that book, or to try that new recipe, or to just create more abundance or love in your life, maybe there's some old shoes you can give away.

Really.



REALLY!
