Creating your own reality series -: Praying for your own self gain.


praying-463429_1280It is said that no prayer goes unanswered, and if you believe in free will, then that is true.

It is also said that we should not pray for our own benefit.

At one time, I believed and accepted this mindset and resisted when someone suggested that it was okay to pray for ones own benefit. To me, it seemed like an abuse of power and something we should not do, but the more I thought about it over the years, the less sense it made to me.

If our every thought defines our reality, then our life is very much a reflection of our beliefs. Even if it’s the belief that we have no control and there is no God, such will be your experience.

When you bring free will into the equation, (and if you don’t believe in it, then you will experience a life without it, as that is your belief system, hence your free will!) then this means that you don’t get anything you don’t ask for. If you did, then it would be contrary to your free will. If you accept that, then everything that occurs to you isn’t random (unless you believe it is), but a product of your thoughts and prayers.

And those thoughts and prayers create our belief system.

Our belief system is certainly something we cherish and hold onto, and even might defend to our dying breath.

We might feel powerless, but the thing is that all have enormous power, though few of us really understand it and see how our personal world relates to what we are creating.

How many people reading this have heard the words in their mind ‘You don’t know just how powerful you are?’

So should we pray for our own benefit and why don’t we?

In many spiritual philosophies, it’s considered an abuse of power to pray for yourself and generate positive outcomes. Some believe that you must let others pray for you instead.

In the so called new age philosophy, we are told to not acknowledge the negatives and at the same time, you are told that if you use your powers for self gain, you are abusing them. However, we create either way and it seems insane to think that creating negatives just because positives are considered abuse is somehow considered to be better.

People can find much difficulty in praying for abundance or a joyful life. They may well believe they are not worthy or that they will be punished by god or their own karma if they do. (This is also a belief system, and thus, they will indeed experience such a reality.)

Always remember that free will is our greatest gift. It can also be, at the same time, our greatest hindrance when you are not aware that you are creating your circumstances.

We have been given free will so we can create the exact circumstances in which we wish to live.

Unless you wish experience such a state of existence, there really is no benefit to being miserable and living in poverty and depression. If you believe in a God of love, it makes little sense that such a being would desire you to be unhappy.

From my own point of view, if you wish to use your powers to better your world, go for it. Just remember to let every thought and action reflect who you are and who you wish to be.

Life is for living and experiencing. We have the tools and the blessing to do it. So go for it. Be blessed and abundant.

Follow your bliss.

Creating your reality series: – What is Attunement? Part three – Opportunities


The process of attunement part three

Naturally, there are some situations where you literally can’t do anything about. You might just put that down to luck.

For instance, If you are walking and find a twenty dollar note, you can’t exactly do much to locate the owner. (Unless they return looking for it, in which case, you will have to make the decision whether you will be honest or not.)

But generally, you have a choice to leave it there or take it. If you leave it there, someone else will claim it and odds are that it won’t be the owner. What you do is up to you, but there are things that are out of your control.

Every choice we make sends a creative message. What you sow, you reap. What your intentions are will be what you will end up experiencing.

I do find it interesting is that many people always choose what benefits them personally at the expense of another for strictly short term gains.

They exploit, cheat, scam, rip other people off and generally choose to swindle them. Maybe they justify this to themselves by saying that everyone else is doing it and there isn’t any reason why they shouldn’t get a piece of the action.

Also, in my experience, bizarrely enough, when you say to someone: I trust you to do the right thing by me, most people will take this as permission to do the wrong thing by you. They will take this as a message to exploit and cheat you in any way they can.

This brings me to something I’ve come to realize in recent years. When someone decides to take advantage of you, there is a chance that you are there to give them the opportunity to do the right thing and help attune themselves to a reality more in line with their own desires.

You are giving them a gift. They can choose to do the right thing by you (even though it may appear to them that they will lose out by doing so) or they can choose to put their own interests first and pass up the opportunity for long term gains.

Most seem to always choose the latter. Sure they might gain right now, but we all must reap what we sow.

In any case, every time a situation comes up, they make a choice that will create the reality they will eventually find themselves in and never once do they seem to realize that their life is full of unpleasantness because of the decisions that they made.

We encourage these types of behaviours by validating that it’s not their fault how bad their life is and even making them out to be heroes who are battling against the odds.

And that’s fine. As long as it’s what you want. Most, however, do not wish this.

I’ve a friend who goes by a rule he called the 60/40 rule. When there is doubt on how much is owed, give more than you think, that way you have covered yourself. I’ve always considered this to be a wise idea.

Very importantly, what you do affects how the astral levels interact with you. The lower you make your personal vibrations, and the more you attune yourself to lower levels, the more likely you will be to attract the attention of negative entities who may be opportunistic.

Remember, they don’t play by our rules. To them, you are just someone who they can use in the way they see fit.  (Hence the Hidden Astral World series to make others aware.)

So, what choices are you making? Personally, I’m not here to tell you what to do. It doesn’t matter to me what you choose, though it would be wonderful if you choose what is right for you.

I put this information out there for people to ponder, and maybe even decide if they will apply it or not. Most will decide I’m full of it, and that’s fine. I’m not here to live their lives or take responsibility for it.

Creating your reality series: – What is Attunement? Part two – The process


Following on from part one, where we discussed what attunement is, we look at what the process is all about.

The process of attunement – Part one.

This brings me to the process of attunement. Making agreements is one thing, but the process of attunement is another.

Where you end up eventually (from lifetime to lifetime) depends on what you have chosen to do and be.

Every situation is an opportunity to decide. Every choice sends out a message to the universe (or whatever you choose to call it) that this is who I am and it is said that the universe never says ‘no’ to your idea about yourself. It simply reproduces it.

This is wonderful, in theory, but in reality, it means that whatever you send out there is what you get back. Too many people make choices that they end up regretting later on.

For instance, making decisions based on exploiting others is a common mistake.

This could be anything from scamming others, cheating, being dishonest, not playing someone their dues, lying and anything along those lines.

It’s actually mind boggling just how often people do this and how many are consciously making such a choice.

They do this frequently and generally as part of their day to day routine.

Maybe they will deliberately misrepresenting a product in order to make a sale or pretend work needs to be done that doesn’t.

A well known example are second hand car dealers, who have a notorious reputation for selling what are called lemons or cars that just have problems. The salesperson will generally know if the vehicle is defective, but they generally fail to disclose it to the buyer. They have made a choice to cheat someone for their short term gain.

Still on the car theme, another common one are auto-mechanics who have charged  for work they did not do, or did not have to do. (I’ve had this more than a few times, and they certainly lost any impending business because of it.)

In short, anything that’s deliberately misrepresented in order to gain an unfair advantage over another is a decision and opportunity for attunement.

There’s an expression: Never give a sucker an even break.

I find it an interesting saying because it’s almost giving you permission to prey on those who are trusting and unwary.

In my view, though, it’s just a justification to rip off another. All you are really doing is demonstrating this is who you are, and attuning yourself to that type of reality. In the end, who is really the sucker?

Of course, not everything is premeditated. There are many decisions we make in reaction to things that happen to us.

It might be something as simple as being under charged or getting back more change than you should. Do you keep quiet or give back what you agreed to? If you were overcharged, would you say anything? If it’s good enough for one way, it’s certainly good enough the other way.

And surprisingly most will keep quiet when they get more than they expected. Some will even crow about it to their friends or acquaintances, as though it’s something to be proud of.

Yes, they might get a dollar or more, and feel they have somehow gained or won some kind of victory, but that extra won’t make a difference to their life. All they have done is demonstrated that they are willing to be petty and even potentially create a situation where the cashier might be taken to task for the shortfall in the till.

We could continue on endlessly, but I’m sure you get the idea.

Creating your reality series: – What is Attunement? – Part one


tuning forkWhat is an Attunement?

Following on from my last entry, we’ll look at what attunement actually is, and then go into the process of attunement.

Every day we are faced with making decisions. Some are standard and trite ones such as: Should I get out of bed or sleep in and what should I have for breakfast today, or should I even bother?

You also have decisions on how you will respond to certain situations. They might be at work, with friends, strangers, or just uncommon or rare occurrences.

I look upon such decisions as opportunities for attunement.

But let’s first look at what that actually is.

From my personal understanding, attunement is bringing yourself to a place that resonates with who you are and who you wish to be. It’s also a method of allowing access to things, generally dimensionally based.

Interestingly enough, games like World of Warcraft used to use the word ‘Attunement’ as a way of describing the process that you needed to complete before you would be allowed into certain areas of the game. It used to be that if you had not performed all of the required quests and actions, you simply could not enter into some places. This is a fairly accurate representation of what attunement or attuning yourself is.

For all of us, life is the process of attunement. Every decision we make attunes us. We do this all day, every day, with every thought, word, action and deed. Every decision we make defines what we create and ultimately our reality.

However, it seems that most seem to choose badly. The choices they make are generally poor.

Now, to be clear, I use the word ‘poor’ quite relatively. Poor or bad are decisions that take you away from that is desirable to you and a good decision is what brings you closer. Really, there are no right or wrong choices, it’s all just relative.

You can normally tell a bad decision when you are feeing anxious bad about it. Most tend to ignore what their feelings tell them, though. They don’t like what they hear, and generally logic triumphs over intuition.

The short term gains tend to be quite apparently, but not too many see the long term ones. Those who do rarely see it beyond their current life.

The attitude of Yolo (You only live once) is incredibly prevalent in this day and age. Most don’t believe in reincarnation even though there is plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise. Just as most don’t believe in the spirit world, and will ignore even their own experiences that such things are real. (It actually amazes me that the Omen series has very little interest, even though it’s exactly the kind of thing people are trying to look for.)

So people rarely look beyond their lifetimes. They figure that they can do anything they wish and not have any consequences later on. They believe that they can make deals and if they don’t honour or complete them in this life time, they are null and void when they pass away.

However, they are wrong. Any agreement made with two or more parties must have all parties agree to let it go before it can really be considered complete. Anything that is unresolved remains unresolved until it is resolved.

That means that it carries over from lifetime to lifetime. It keeps on bringing you back over and over again until you have fulfilled your agreement.

Trouble is that we don’t remember our past lives (and this is by design) and because of this, and because some belief systems and religious teach us that they don’t exist, we keep on making the same errors over and over again. People act as though they only live once every lifetime.

Generally, you can go by the rule, that if you make an agreement, you will eventually have to honour it. It doesn’t matter if you made this agreement in the 3D world (generally known as Earth) or the spirit world or in your mind, you will be soul bound to honour it.

So be very careful what you agree to or if you take an oath or a vow. They are all binding.

And while free will dictates that there are no karmic debts, it does not necessarily follow that it means you can choose it ignore agreements or get around them by sleight of hand.

They were made with free will and thus must be completed to the satisfaction of all parties concerned.

Creating your reality series: – Acts of self-definition


IMG_1355Over the years, I’ve come to certain conclusions about the choices we make.

Each one is an act of self-definition.

Now, this is hardly a new revelation. Many over the years have said it, though I really don’t think they really comprehend what it actually means.

I’ve given a lot of thought on what it means over the years and have written about it in other blogs, but right now, I feel a push to write this, so I will.

We make choices at every moment; some obvious, some not so much.

I believe each choice is an opportunity and a chance to attune yourself to a reality or outcome of your choosing.

As stated in other entries, my observation is that free will exists so this blog is from that point of view.

Those with free will (which is virtually everyone on this planet, though there are exceptions) are blessed with the power to create their own realities. Most don’t seem to realize this and even those that do don’t seem to understand exactly what this means.

To put it simply, the reality you eventually find yourself in is based on our intentions, believes, thoughts and actions.

Think about this for a moment. Life isn’t happening to you. It’s happening because you are creating it. Your circumstances aren’t random. (Unless you believe they are) they are a product of the reality you have created.

You have no idea just how truly powerful (and magnificent) you really are!

It is said we have free will. Some don’t believe it (and thus, they experience a life without free will. Ironically, their free will in action.)

Some believe it, but think that it means they must make the right choices, though this implies that free will isn’t really free will if you can’t make any choice but the predetermined ones.

And some understand that that free will allows us to create whatever circumstances we desire.

If you believe in free will, then it must follow that all situations are of your choosing on some level. To have something happen to you that you did not choose is contrary to free will. It is the opposite of it.

Most people, however, unwittingly choose badly for themselves. Most choose coming from a place of fear rather than a place of love or trust.

The outcomes they experiences are more often than not, unintended. This is because that on this third dimensional plane of existence, it takes much longer for things to happen.

There is a lag between your creative thoughts and the results. It might be days, weeks, months or even years, so when it happens it appears that it is happening to you, rather than by you.

If you dare to suggest this to someone who believes they have a rough life, though, they will generally react in anger and abuse; spouting venomous words.

I find this curious. To me, it’s like saying: “Yes, your life sucks. Here’s what you can do to create the life you do desire,” and their response is: “How dare you suggest I can do this. *#^% you!”

People love to give their power away and blame others for it. For many, nothing is ever their fault. It’s always someone else’s.  They are always the victim and everyone else is screwing them over.

This is generally life on a base level for many I know. They go from drama to drama. They struggle day to day and believe their life is horrible because of everyone else around them. They ignore all warning signs and dismiss any feelings of intuition they may have.

They make bad decision after bad decision.

They don’t seem to realize that each decision they make is attuning them to that life.

Next Thursday: What is Attunement

Do not fear the darkness… thank it instead.


light and darkThere’s a parable by Neale Donald Walsch called The Little Soul and the Sun. There are two parts to this tale. In a nutshell, the story is about a soul who wanted to know who he was., but because all there was, was light, and all he was, was light, he could not do this.
It begins:

There once was a soul who knew itself to be the light. This was a new soul, and so, anxious for experience. “I am the light,” it said. “I am the light.” Yet all the knowing of it and all the saying of it could not substitute for the experience of it. And in the realm from which this soul emerged, there was nothing but the light. Every soul was grand, every soul was magnificent, and every soul shone with the brilliance of God’s awesome light. And so the little soul in question was as a candle in the sun. In the midst of the grandest light — of which it was a part — it could not see itself, nor experience itself as Who and What it Really Is.

And then goes on to explain that in order for the soul to know itself, it must separate itself from all that is and call upon the darkness so it may know its own light and experience who he or she really is.

But in order for that soul aspect to know itself as light, someone had to play the part of being the darkness.

In this story, the soul wished to experience forgiveness, but as there was no one to forgive; someone had to play that part.

Another soul offered: “I will come into your next physical lifetime and do something for you to forgive. I ask only one thing in return,”

“Anything! Anything!” the Little Soul cried.

“In the moment that I strike you and smite you, in the moment that I do the worst to you that you could ever imagine – in that self-same moment…remember Who I Really Am.”

“Oh, I won’t forget!” promised the Little Soul. “I will see you in the perfection with which I hold you now, and I will remember Who You Are, always.”

This story illustrates perfectly why we have darkness. Why there are demons, and why people attack and hurt us.

And while many people do indeed seem to understand that all we do is because we have created it on some level, and that is our free will in action, they seem to forget the very thing they need to remember.

The ones who are dark are dark because without them, we could not experience our own light.

Far too often, I see people condemning demons, so called evil, people who have wronged them and cursing them to Hell (or whatever place they feel is punishing enough. )

Far too often people insist that there is no help for those being and they are not worthy or their time, their healing, or even their love or blessings.

But is this really what we should be doing? So called negative beings don’t remember who they really are. Perhaps they have chosen a part where, by necessity, they cannot have any connection to the light. No matter what is done, they will always be of the dark because that is what is required. And they will remain so until they eventually return, with the rest, to source.

People seem to take great pride in condemning that which they consider to be dark. They simply love to hate and detest anything that doesn’t meet their own personal standards.

But condemning the dark is as useless as condemning the night. Everything is there for a reason. It wouldn’t exist otherwise.

I can’t help but wonder how horrible it would be to be hated by everyone, attacked and detested just for being.

Personally, I feel we should bless the darkness. Thank them for their gift and even their sacrifice. Those who have even experienced a little of what it’s like to not have light in your life should understand what it is like to be like them.

They may not remember who they are. They may never be able to in this realm, but that doesn’t mean we should forget, either.

And while you may not agree or condone their actions, always come from a place of love, rather than hate or fear.

Someone has to play the bad guy. Perhaps one day it may be you.

Psychic attack series: Seeing is believing, but believing is also seeing.


germOver the years, I’ve come across many forms of psychic attacks. I’ve met many people who seem to be endearing them.

Of course, there are always those who will tell you psychic attacks aren’t real.  They label those who believe they are under such attacks are delusional or will tell you that such things simply do not exist.

Curiously enough, even those who are considered guru’s and have given us amazing knowledge will tell you the same thing.

At its purest level, you can indeed argue that we’re all one and that no one is attacking anyone.

However, that’s like saying that no one can kill or attack another because there is only really one of us in the room.

This is all fine and good, but we live in the realm of the relative, and not only are such things real, but they happen more frequently than you might suspect.

Not believing in it doesn’t make you immune to them.

As a friend of mine recently put it to me: It’s like saying you don’t believe in germs, therefore they can’t make you sick.

While we don’t have the technology to see psychic attacks, let’s remember that at one point, we didn’t have the technology to see germs either. People didn’t know of them. They still got sick, though. They still got infections, diseases, viruses and died from them.

To say that if they just didn’t acknowledge such things then they would be been fine is just nonsense. Would you tell a doctor to not wash their hands just because you don’t believe germs exist? You’ve probably never seen one, save in a photo. Those with the right equipment can certainly see them. It’s very much like psychics who can see shadow people. They have the right equipment, so to speak.

Knowing germs exist and can affect us is important.  We can take steps to protect ourselves. We can work on our immune systems, stress levels, watch what we touch, eat and what can make us very sick. We can become immunized to certain things and generally live a healthier lifestyle.

Of course, you can say I’m making a faulty analogy here, because you can actually prove germs exist, but my view is that just because we can’t see things on another level, it doesn’t mean they are not there.

There are certainly spirits about. More than you would ever imagine and on many different levels that are just too fine for the human eye to perceive.  It is a fact that we do have a limited spectrum of what we can sense. Imagine if we had the abilities of say, a dog. Their sense of smell is mind boggling. Unless you experience it, though, you can’t really know what it’s like, but just imagine if you could track things just by smells? Imagine if you could hear things that are way too high for the normal ear to hear.

Imagine if you could see things that are way out of our spectrum?

From my own personal experience, I can tell you that psychic attacks do exist. They can come from either people or astral beings. I’ve had both happen to me and on a frequent basis.

It did not matter if I believed in them or not. I still experienced the effects of them.

In fact, there was a period of some years where I believed I was immune to them and that they really didn’t exist. Eventually, though, I had to admit that something was going on, and whether I acknowledge it was real or not, the proof was definitely there.

I’ve also dealt with too many people who came to me because they were being attacked. Believe me, there is nothing more irritating than being told it’s all in your mind and if you ignore it will go away. It doesn’t.  At least not on its own.

I’ve touched on psychic attacks a number of times on my website, blog and the Empath Guidebook, so I don’t want to go into it again.

What I do want to do is talk about one way of stopping them.
