Power

We tend to believe our power comes from external factors like monthly income, relationships, etc. Some of these things do produce satisfaction for sure, but real personal power comes from within.

Each person is born with a unique energy signature that is meant to expand over time. I think most problems in our personal lives and in society are because of the suppression of that expansion.

People in positions of power feel threatened and will do anything to maintain their position. Again, they believe they don’t have any power so they must take it from others. At some point they were suppressed and believe this is the only way to re-fuel.

I think we need to spend more effort on developing our own growth process. It is us that does the most damage to ourselves. Awareness is half the battle, action is next.

Have you ever felt stuck or in a rut? Where is your energy being blocked or stopped up? What actions need to happen to open the flood gates?

For me, I thought I was very lucky to have photography. I thought I had it made until I entered the professional world of competition, capitalism, criticism, etc. I would go through peaks and valleys of self doubt to confidence to everything sucks to everything is cool. I thought these cycles were normal.

Then one day, actually not that long ago, I started writing random thoughts and ideas on this site. I felt the flood gates open. I didn’t know that I would like blogging. I don’t know if anything will ever come it, but I do know a new certain type of freedom and flow has occurred. And it has seeped into other areas of my life, including my photography.

Not that I don’t have days of self doubt, but ideas of “good” and “bad” or “success” or “failure” are starting to slip to the wayside. I am feeling not so concerned with “results” and just feeling excited about seeking and discovering, just as it was when I got my first camera.

Everyone’s life experience is totally different. I am just saying if you are feeling stuck or suppressed or blocked or whatever it may be, it could be a matter of trying something new and experimenting. Find the key that will unleash the beast, the beast that is your personal power. And if anyone tries to take it, they will be eaten alive.

Freedom Paradox

This double headed eagle represents power over East and West, then eventually it was adopted by others to symbolize the power of church and state.

I wanted to write about freedom. There so much trouble in the world right now, so many power hungry people trying to dominate and take away power from other people. It’s saddening and frustrating.

I keep thinking that the more we can change ourselves, the more we can help others change. I keep thinking about if I can break free, then I can try to find the keys to break others out too.

Then I was going to write about separation vs unity and how governments are using tactics such as “divide and conquer” and propaganda etc etc.

But I’m kind of at a loss for words. What really is freedom? It means different things for different people.

We all know people like artists or musicians or actually any profession who seemingly are at the highest level of creative freedom and expression yet are battling demons in such a way that leads to depression or drug addiction or alcohol abuse or whatever.

Which is why for me (if you’ve been reading this blog at all), freedom starts personally. Like we all have our personal prison labyrinth with multiple levels of mental walls, physical walls, emotional walls, and spiritual walls. This is why “break throughs” feel like you really broke through something.

What kind of break through does a person who is lacking personal power need to have? Why would this person need to take power from another person? What kind of fear is running around in their brain telling them to take power from people of a certain gender or people of a certain race? And what kind of fear is in people that think it’s ok?

So many factors from education and upbringing to belief systems etc. We have a lot of work to do. How do you show love to a hateful person? How do you show non-judgment and non-prejudice to a judgmental and prejudiced person?

We often chose our battles like giving a homeless person some money vs not giving a person a home based on income and credit score. Or judging a person’s haircut vs not judging your own dental hygiene.

All this separateness is moving us in the opposite direction of unity. Sometimes we might see unity and think that individuality would disappear, but I think individuality would prosper since we would be free-er of judgement.

This is the paradox. To have freedom, it’s gonna take work and discipline. And those words don’t sound super freedom-y at all really. But we chose this life didn’t we. So let’s work. Everyday. And sing while we are doing it. Sing songs of freedom. Everyday.

Galactic Citizen

Imagine a video game. The only control you have in the game is to enter the birthday of your character. Maybe you want your character to roam around with dinosaurs or be part of building the great pyramid of Giza.

At a certain point, you do have little controls. But only really leaving hints and clues hoping that he or she will follow a certain path you are leading them on.

What if the purpose of the game is to see how many levels of consciousness you can get them to?

What if you chose that particular birth date because that particular era of time happens to be the easiest era of time to level up your character? What if that time is now?

What if every time your character levels up, you get more communication and influence over your character?

What if at a certain level you get to merge with your character and be in the game?

What if you are blob of energy and you dropped a tiny droplet of yourself in the game and the purpose is to reunite with your droplet, safe and sound with a lifetime of experience?

What if the purpose of that is to rack up enough experience points to up level in this dimension?

Energy Forecast for May 14 – May 21

Another download of things we can maybe expect this week. Everyone is moving at their own pace and some of these messages may or may not resonate with you. But I think if you are reading this, then you gravitated here for one reason or another.

This week is more of the waves from last week. More clearing and more awareness. More clarity. Less up and down, less rough, but just as effective.

It’s subtle this week. Look for signs, symbols, and synchronicities. The landing strip has been lit up for you to land your plane, but you might not be seeing it clearly.

It’s ok though. We’re learning how to surf these waves. It’s ok to bail. It’s just water. This may bring up some fears. You don’t have to engage them today, just look at them in the eyes and see what they want. Take notes.

Most fears have to do with safety which can be discussed. If you are up to it, begin negotiations.

Everything in nature is either growing or shrinking, expanding or contracting. Including you. Enjoy the process.

Purpose

In the NBA, the commentators on TNT often mention “The Others”. They are referring to the other players on the team that are not the superstar player. The Others have to step up in order to go from a good team to a great team.

Yesterday the Trailblazers won and their star player didn’t have a great game at all. Kenny Smith mentioned that The Others pulled him from the hole he was in and that’s how they won.

Let’s say we are on a 4 man basketball team and our players names are Health, Wealth, Love, and Purpose. Every now and then one will have a terrible game, sometimes more than one of them at once. I think the player that can always have a good game and pull the team out of the hole at any given time is Purpose.

When you’re looking at a friend who’s in a bad rut you say things like, “At least he’s got his health,” or “At least he’s got some money,” or “At least he has his wife still.” It’s rare that purpose is mentioned and I think it’s because it’s rare that people even think about it.

What is it? Google definition:

noun
1. the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

verb
1. have as one’s intention or objective.

It’s often easier to define purpose for ourselves by what we don’t want. We have job so that we are’t homeless. We have a girlfriend because we don’t want to be single. But this can only take us so far.

When your using a map app, you have to tell it exactly where to go. Knowing what neighborhoods you don’t like is not enough.

Sure there are levels to this. Everyday we have big and little objectives and missions to sort out, but in the grand scheme of things I think an overall life purpose is worth defining for yourself. At least for now because it will change and grow.

I find that my own purpose seems to keep transforming and evolving and sometimes has apparently gone missing, but what is happening is it is refining and re-defining itself with the times, developementally technically culturally socially spiritually anthropologetically etc.

Who knew my 7th grade photography hobby would lead to “blogger”?

Time Shift

More thoughts on thoughts about the last post I wrote. It was about “time heisting” by bringing in a future reality by way of imagination and integrating the thought patterns of that future reality into this one.

First, to make this happen, we have to lighten the load we are already carrying. We have to make room for this future reality. To do this we have to let go of old molds, records, and patterns.

Second, we are not “going” and “getting”. We are “being” and “receiving”. I think this is important to note because we are always seeking, it’s in our nature. We are “receiving” future thoughts and “being” a future version of ourselves in this now moment, thus reality will have to reshape itself to accommodate us today.

This makes me think this is all about vibration just as much as anything else. That we have moved from an era of, “In order for this to happen, this this and this must happen first.” Now it’s an era of just being in the same vibration as what we want and it will manifest.

I think living a life full of purpose will get us to that vibration easier because at that point you are already thinking, doing, and being at a higher frequency than normal.

You have seen those people that have it all and how things just keep getting easier for them. Could it be they are just operating with supreme focus and purpose? I think so.

Time Heist

In the Avengers: Endgame, they joke about a “time heist” throughout the movie as they go back to different timelines via the quantum realm and collect the infinity stones from the past to use them in the present.

I think we can do our own time heist.

“All is mental” is the first Hermetic Principle, otherwise known as The Cosmic Laws. I was planning to write about these laws soon so I am ahead of myself a bit here. It basically states that our entire universe lives in our minds. In our thoughts.

What if we use our maximum creativity levels and imagine a future version of ourselves. This future version has everything we could ever want and desire. What are this person’s thoughts, habits, and way of life? How does this person eat, sleep, and spend their days?

We can use those thought patterns from the future and bring them to this present moment as if they are our own. Our reality could change as soon as instantly.

Think about how it works in reverse. You remember a shitty time you had on a date and now you don’t wanna go on dates. Your present reality was affected by a memory from the past. What if instead you used a positive near future memory?

Think about how fear plays into our daily decisions. If fear can have that much power over our present moment, imagine what a whole future thought pattern package download could do.

Let’s play with this and share some results.

Energy Report for Tuesday May 7 2019 – Tuesday May 14 2019

If you didn’t already know, Earth is going through a massive shift. All inhabitants of Earth therefore must go through this shift as well. Old patterns, systems, and beliefs are being filtered out and we may be feeling it mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually.

These energies come in waves. Sometimes big, sometimes small. Enjoy the ride. Lots incoming this week. May have you feeling up or down. Light is being shown onto the darker areas of your life.

This light will highlight things that aren’t so pretty, but it is in this awareness alone that will bring clearing and healing.

No need to resist. Go with the flow. There will be a feeling of needing to let go. Do it with zero hesitation. This is all good for you. Get rest when you need it. Drink lots of water and spend time in nature when possible.

Disclosure

Got the call today. The call to be open and of service.

On this path to discover more truths of beingness I came across the practice of meditation. It has been a few years now and it has changed my life.

Aside from stress relief and epic moments of peace, I stumbled upon other levels of consciousness.

I made a few YouTube vids about this but have since deleted them for whatever reasons. (May start doing them again.)

Long story short, I have developed a heightened sensitivity and can translate and report on energies and frequencies. I will start sharing these reports here on this blog.

If this type of thing resonates with you and you are looking for personal insights, let’s get on a call for a personalized energy report. Also known as an energy reading, intuitive reading, or spiritual reading.

This is a new thing for me but I have been getting good feedback and feel a new duty to support where I can. Let’s do a 33 min call for $33. Email me.

You might be thinking, “If you’re all other levels or whatever, why haven’t you won the lotto already?” Well, that’s a mindset of scarcity which is a product of this capitalistic matrix of control we live in. While it seems we don’t have the power to change it, we do have the power to change ourselves and influence those around us which in turn will change the world. This awareness is winning the lotto.

But, this matrix is already crumbling as we speak. This means more than half the work is already done. All we have to do now is recognize our power and figure out what to do with it. This is where I think I can help with downloads of wisdom, clarity, gratitude, peace, love, and understanding in the the areas of health, wealth, relationships, and purpose.

Timelines

I am beginning to understand timelines and dimensions a little better.

Imagine a doughnut. The shape of this doughnut is called the “torus” and it happens to be the shape of our energy field. They call it a “torodial field” and anything that gives off energy has one. It also is the shape of our universe. It is in this shape that can help us understand the perspective of the illusion of infinity, or at least contain it for today’s purposes.

Imagine a line traveling around the core of this doughnut, this is your timeline. All your past present and future wrapped around the middle of your energy field. Like a fishing line, one end in the water while the rest rolled up on a spool. This realization of time is the realization of the 4th dimension.

Now imagine multiple fishing lines in the water. Imagine infinite lines in the water. These lines represent all possible timelines from all possible choices you could have made in your life. We take all these lines and form another doughnut.

This represents the 5th dimension. In this new reality, we can hop from timeline to timeline. If we decided to turn right on one timeline, but in another we turned left, in this dimension we can experience both at our leisure.

These 2 doughnuts then birth infinite doughnuts. Infinite realities. Before we had choice of infinite timelines, and now we have choice of infinite realities, each made up of infinite timelines. Meaning we can experience being an NBA player or a prodigy piano player or a frog. This is the 6th dimension.

In the 7th dimension, we reduce this entire model down to 1 doughnut. 1 universe. I think this is where the Akashic Records would reside. (The database of all thoughts.)(For this universe.)

8D would be 2 universes. 9D would be infinite universes.

10D would be 1 doughnut of infinite universes, 11D would be 2.

12D would be infinity universes times infinity. LOL. This must be Source.

People argue for more dimensions, who knows? I think we are getting closer though.

All this here is my interpretation and maybe it is off in some areas, but maybe it is right in others. Let me know in the comments if you have some other models to look at.

RECAP:
1D = LENGTH
2D = LENGTH X WIDTH
3D = LENGTH X WIDTH X DEPTH
4D = 3D X TIME
5D = 4D X 2 = NEW REALITY
6D = 5D x INFINITY = INFINITE REALITIES
7D = OUR UNIVERSE
8D = OUR UNIVERSE X 2 = NEW UNIVERSE
9D = 8D X INFINITY = INFINITE UNIVERSES
10D = THE MULTIVERSE
11D = THE MULTIVERSE X 2 = NEW MULTIVERSE
12D = 11D X INFINITY = INFINITE MULTIVERSES = SOURCE

Expansion

Sometimes we might be calling, singing, or yelling and no one can hear us. I think we might be building up our walls too big, too thick, with too much armed security. Originally meant to keep the riff raff out, but now outside communications are limited if available at all.

Could be impossible to destroy these walls but we can always expand the borders. We can include much more territory. It might be a huge and complicated reconstruction project, but I think benefits are worth it.

With an expanded awareness we have more room to create. We have more room to invent and experience all the possible realities. And it will more fun.

Choices

More words on words. If our beingness is our projection of reality, then pursuing mastery of self is pursuing mastery of reality.

The idea is that shifting our thoughts, feelings, actions, and behaviors will shift our reality.

Every second we have billions of different options that represent billions of different realities.

In business we look at numbers and optimize accordingly either monthly, weekly, and/or daily.

I’m suggesting, in life, that we optimize by the second.

At least try to anyways. Try to be mindful in this now moment.

How many choices today will be made consciously, sub consciously, or super consciously?

Twinning

If we are the ocean and the stars, are not the ocean and the stars us as well? Feeling into this hall of mirrors we call reality.

My Grandpa used to say something along the lines of, “When you point your finger at someone, you got 3 fingers pointing back at yourself.” I always took that as meaning if my brother or sister broke something in their house, it was my fault because I was in charge of them since I’m the oldest.

As I got older, I took it to mean that if I was in an undesirable situation it was no one’s fault but my own since I made the choices to get there.

Today a deeper meaning is revealed. If something in my reality is messed up, it is showing me that something within me must be messed up. I wrote about this in other posts already, I know but let’s get into it some more.

When we say things like, “That guy’s too negative.” Sure yeah cut him. That’s usually Chapter 2 in all personal development books. Eliminate negative things. But guess what, you might end up eliminating like 95% of the population, movies, music, art, photography, etc. And this kind of goes against appreciation of creativity and the freedom of expression or just studying the human condition in general.

Maybe the proper reaction is no reaction, just self analysis. If that person is a mirror reflection of you and he is annoying, then maybe he is just showing you about your own annoying-ness. You can avoid this person, sure. But you might keep running into people on a whole other levels of annoying until you figure out how to heal your own annoying-ness.

I’m not saying that after that you won’t run into annoying people, but I’m saying that after that it might not bother you as much. You might meet the situation with a more proper approach like empathy.

Everyone is you and you are everyone. We are all one but we still have to live in duality for now. “I” and “ME” equals “YOU” and “THEM”, yet… we have to co-exist separately to co-create this dream we live in.

I think this is the “neutrality” people speak of when talking about higher levels of consciousness. It is not just about non-judgment, it’s about non-judgment because you are judging yourself.

If we can accept this reality as a dream of one and all at the same time, then maybe it will become more dreamy.

Alarms

This is Jodie and Stephen from These Days gallery and bookstore. They are awesome and if you are in downtown LA go visit them. We did a book signing at their place last night and it was super fun.

I kinda left out a few things from my last post about the reality mirror. I was writing about how if things aren’t going your way externally, then there may be something going on internally. And I know what it feels like to seemingly be doing everything right yet everything is still seemingly very wrong.

Luckily, we were born with a built in alarm system. That is your emotions. When you start to catch a cold, your body will give you a heads up with a runny nose, maybe a cough, maybe some tiredness. This is your body telling you to slow down and take care of it. I think it’s the same with your emotions and your mental, physical, and spiritual well being.

When you are feeling sad, angry, frustrated, jealous, etc, it’s something telling you to address the situation. We are all too good at making ourselves feel better, but then sooner or later the same problems rise up. This is like taking the battery out of the smoke alarm because it went off on accident and is super annoying, but it is there for good reason.

I’m saying if you are feeling bummed out, you may need to lean into it deeper and find out why you are bummed. It’s too easy to go get ice cream or tequila and worry about it later. It’s too easy to say, “I’m just being dumb, everything is all good.” While everything is all good, it’s not really all good if you are not feeling all good. I say feel all good once the alarm has been cleared and reset but not before.

That being said, what we think we want mentally may not be the same as what we want physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This is the “alignment” I was talking about.

It is turning out that this path of betterment and self mastery isn’t a path at all. It’s a choice. The choice to pay attention or not and act accordingly. Not saying it’s easy though. But we are in this together.

What Is

There was a couple years in the late 80’s where we would say, “What is?” We used it like how you would use “What’s up?” A lot of slang I used back then didn’t make it through. I still say, “Rad” but I don’t need to use “Yeah guy” or “Feak” which was like “this situation is weak” or “Rooted” which was like someone who is extremely disappointed. Analyzing this now, “Rooted” could be more like “Ruded” like someone was harshly rude to another person. “I honked my horn as she took a sip of coffee and it spilled all over her, so ruded.” “So rut.” “Rut” was like in a rut but in the exact moment of the rutness I guess. “I ran out of gas and while we were pushing the car, I got a flat tire. So rut.” LOL.

It is what it is. What is, is. What is shall be. These are all sayings that I think are keeping us in the matrix. If someone wants to control you, the first thing they would do is take away any power you have or make you believe you didn’t have any in the first place. What if it’s your own mind trying to control you and this matrix is your own belief systems?

Everyone has their own matrix to escape from and it’s a web of learned beliefs, imposed beliefs, generational beliefs, etc. We are in an era of these matrixes falling apart. Do you feel it? It is rough and complicated but what do we want? Freedom. When do we want it? Now.

If we are the creators of our reality and if our reality is a reflection of our being-ness then to really own and honor that creativity-ness the more proper saying would be, “I am what is.”

That acceptance of responsibility is the true path to freedom and from there we are actively participating in the co-creation of all of reality.

I was a dust in the wind guy for a long time, not a victim but more like a target of circumstance. Growing up skateboarding you learn how to fall but you also learn how to pull stuff off. This leads to trying to get away with all kinds of things in life and being fine with making it or bailing or slamming. Like that Katt Williams skit, “Trying shit and trying shit, don’t work. Trying shit and trying shit, don’t work.”

It’s not helpful to be all Yoda about it either, “There is no try, only do.” Also the underdog vibes of “Keep going till you get there,” is only halfway helpful.

I think the new new for me and you is accepting that you are right now exactly where you are supposed to be. The idea being that from a different perspective, you are either in or not in alignment. Alignment is when your mental body, physical body, emotional bdoy, and spiritual body are all on the same page. If you are not in alignment then this now moment has a take away for you to learn from and adjust accordingly.

Also consider that the articulation of exactly where you really want to be needs to be re-examined.

A quote from Kappy that he heard somewhere, “Heaven is this very moment. Hell is wanting it to be something else.”

This quote resonates because you can reverse engineer it. If all I am is what all is, then there is no something else. I am heaven. We are heaven, we are paradise.
