Here is something I am perplexed about.
It seems that nearly all spiritual advisors, whether they are mediums, channelers, psychics, or whatever, say this one thing that makes no sense to me.
They say the Universe is LITERAL and therefore the WORDS you say or think can work against what you really want. An example they give is that if you say, "I just want this hardship to end" you will only get more of the same.
They say the universe is so literal, that it will only give you more of what you think of. So if you say you don't want something, it will only focus on that thing and give you more.
If this is true, then the Universe is incapable of understanding intent. I would think INTENT was important.
Patrick, you always say that we are to dwell on what we want instead of what we don't want. But is the Universe so picky and tricky that it can't understand when someone says, "I want XYZ to go away"?
If that's the case, then vast numbers of humans will shoot themselves in the foot for a lifetime because they won't know. It also feels very annoying to have to constantly police one's own thoughts because they aren't somehow "intelligible" to the Universe.
And where does this leave prayer? What happens if you pray to have obstacles removed?
Focusing on hardship emphasizes it. Focus on what you wish will take its place.
What & who are the universe? That word, used in this context, is a disembodiment of any one person's true place, power and effect, both upon others AND themselves. It is not "the universe" it's YOU.
You put your thought on "hardship" then you get it. Your definition is also a choice, one person's pain is another's pleasure.
If you prefer to keep definitions the same, then put attention on what you prefer. Draw pictures, cut out pictures, watch videos, think about the videos and pictures, or anything else which represents your preference. Drown out what you dislike.
If you keep saying "XYZ" you're calling it. Don't we say "It's called..." when we refer to the name? Or to summon forward, we also say "call", right? Or to contact by electromagnetic voice reproduction device?
Stop naming, labeling, identifying thus emphaizing what you do NOT want.
Yes, vast numbers of us DO shoot down our hopes. Yes.
Replace. Don't pray to, towards or at replacement of the thing you want gone, pray to the NEW thing, and leave the old one OUT of the process.
Thank you for confirming what I've just posted for Lorri, Patrick !! Love, Lysa
Dearest Lorri, from what I understand how it works, your words are your thoughts reflecting your energy, and it's all about energy. If you say "I want this hardship to end", you are still in the energy of "hardship", and it will remain the same until you change it. So you have to change your energy,into something you really want. Focus on what you really want instead of what you don't want and your energy will shift and align with/match what you want. It's better to think, feel and say "well being and happiness are there for me" than "I want this hardship to end". It's a question of perspective. Then you will align with the energy of well-being and happiness and that's what you will attract, receive.and feel. Some people do this with ease but for many of us it needs practice, a different way of thinking and formulating so that we don't get "stuck" in an energy we don't feel good with. In my opinion, your "I want XYZ to go away" is easier to deal with :first of all, tell them and then, just ignore them and they'll disappear out of your life! Let go what you don't prefer, concentrate on what you prefer ! they will feel your energy in their presence anyway and they won't come around you anymore (I experienced it and it works wonders!). Hope this helps, but it would also be great if we also had TC's advice on the subject!! Love, Lysa.
@Lorri.....Prayer can be powerful in many groups of people praying at the same time. Personal prayer, it depends what lessons and experiences your Higher self chose for this lifetime, so for example if your HS wanted to experience some obstacle then the prayer may not work until you have overcome the obstacle and maybe forgiven yourself for whatever the problem is and let it go.... It could be a pattern coming up from a previous life etc etc. There are many different reasons that the Universe will show you if certain obstacles keep coming your way. Does that make sense?
Can we just admit that this spiritual rule can be annoying?
1) The vast majority of people have never heard of it and will never hear of it. In essence, we come to earth and find ourselves in a game we were never told the rules of. What's the point of playing a game without knowing the rules? Seems like the human race was set up for failure if this (secret) rule is a key component of personal progress.
2) It's exhausting. It's utterly exhausting to have a thought like, "I want this issue to go away", followed immediately by the thought, "Oh, I'm not thinking correctly, so now I'm causing the issue to stay!"
3) Why can't wanting something oppressive to go away be positive? It IS a positive experience when it goes away.
"…Can we just admit that this spiritual rule can be annoying?..." Interpretation: Agree with me! Agree with me! It's so tough to break habits of perception…..everybody agree with me!
Yes, it can be TOUGH because…… the devil you know is easier than the angel you do NOT. There are some things complete agreement will not change. All the King' horses and all the King's men can come together and agree, snow is green. It will still fall white. Think about something you know can be done or happen. Become a tycoon, Olympic gold medalist, school teacher, street bum alcoholic, etc....
1) "The vast majority of people have never heard of it and will never hear of it. In essence, we come to earth and find ourselves in a game we were never told the rules of. What's the point of playing a game without knowing the rules? Seems like the human race was set up for failure if this (secret) rule is a key component of personal progress."
So what if they don't hear of it? That affects YOU, how?
If it's mentioned by, as you say, many mediums, psychics, intuitive channels, channellers, writer, gurus, angels, archangels….. then, IT ISN'T A SECRET.
We come to Earth to re-discover the rules we agreed we'd follow, then maybe….change them and the game! The point is….learning, NOT winning. Competition and victory are NOT the "end game" but mere steps along the way. The goal is LEARNING.
2) "It's exhausting. It's utterly exhausting to have a thought like, 'I want this issue to go away', followed immediately by the thought, 'Oh, I'm not thinking correctly, so now I'm causing the issue to stay!' "
Agreed on stopping the exhaustion. Stop thinking "I want the issue to go away." That makes it STAY. Think about……hmmmmmm….let's see….Trump! Yes, DJ Trump, who is staying around until January of 2025, a cost free thought. Don't like Trump thoughts? (You might have company on that.) Thinnk about __________ (fill in favorite topic. You have one, follow it!)
3) "Why can't wanting something oppressive to go away be positive? It IS a positive experience when it goes away."
Yes, it's positive when it goes away. AND…… (drum roll) STOP thinking about its departure, and IT WILL GO AWAY. Maybe not tomorrow, or the day after BUT a lot faster and to a better resolution when it does.
I don't really care who agrees or disagrees. I just wanted to voice something I bet a lot of people feel. Constantly worrying about one's thoughts adds a lot of stress to life.
It's a Catch 22. First you are stressed about an issue you want to go away, then you are stressed every time you think the wrong thoughts. That's stress on top of stress.
I don't think the majority of people take mediums, channelers, or psychics seriously, so how much the information is out there doesn't matter. They aren't listening in the first place.
How does other people's ignorance affect me? Don't you think it affects everyone? Those people might have accomplished things that would have helped society or the planet, but their ignorance of the "Rules of Thought" prevent or lessen it.
If we come here to learn the rules and possibly change the game as you say, then I propose changing the game by upping the intelligence of the Universe so it can understand INTENT and not just FOCUS.
ALSO . . .
Let's take my legal issue as an example. I'm not supposed to think about it going away or the Universe will keep it going.
BUT, I have to think about strategy, which involves thinking about what outcome I prefer and don't prefer. Right now, everything is in limbo until our attorney finishes looking at everything and calls a meeting with us to advise. I can ignore it for now, but not later.
In a matter of weeks, I will have to think about the issue whether I want to or not.
How, exactly am I supposed to apply this universal rule to this? Am I just supposed to envision ONLY The outcome I prefer? I PREFER the whole thing be thrown out due to procedural mistakes on my adversaries side, even though I don't know if those mistakes exist yet.
@Lorri and @Patrick
Isn't it a simple way of putting it :"the rules of the game are that...YOU must find out what they are ? (the part in you that stayed in Heaven knows, but you don't in your body on this Earth !) " the objective of the game ? : finding out who you really are !! That is, the Creator of your reality, a Co-creator of the Creator, you are part of the Creator !! Through the experiences you have chosen before incarnating, you must find out who you really are, but it's like being an explorer of your own experiences with a scientific mind : when something doesn't work out, you must be doing something wrong or you don't have the correct ingredients....if it keeps going wrong, may be you keep repeating the same wrong pattern, so you should understand that you must change something in order to get everything going right, you can use, to your own benefit, the experiences of others, interact, exchange, learn, participate...becoming aware of the synchronicities, or the so- called "miracles" in your life, and understand there is something much bigger than the piece of flesh you're stuck in...Finding out how all this works...The rules of quantum physics...Meeting people who will put you on the way (like this wonderful group!!) and putting all your acquired knowledge into practice... and test again...see if it works...Put one and one together...Look for the hints, follow your intuition, listen...Does it work the way you wanted it to? or has it put you onto another path, more interesting than the one you had thought of ? ...Try, listen again to your intuition, listen and talk to your body to heal it, yes, you can...Observe nature and everything around you...How do I interact with people ? Why do I get along or love being in the company of some people and I hate or avoid others...There must be something more than our bodies...could it be energy ? Am I an energy that others can perceive ? Can energies match or reject others ?.... Be a discoverer, an analyser, a tester, use the lessons drawn from your experiences to understand what the rules are and play the game to the fullest...The worst for me is when people don't look for anything, they are passive in their lives, they undergo what happens to them and never question anything, hide behing fate or destiny...How boring...You are the Creator's energy, so CREATE, and create WHAT YOU PREFER , with all your LOVE and REMAIN IN THAT ENERGY !! And if you don't like what you've created, or it doesn't correspond to what you prefer anymore,CHANGE IT !! With my fondest affection, Lysa.
Delightful and so perplexing, this post. With a good bit of humor and word-perplexity on the part of The Committee, it is so much easier to (somewhat) comprehend the perplexion! The problem with our language is that we can express things in so many different ways when they say the same things with different wording, and we keep asking the -- basically -- same questions over and over again. My question is, why are our minds so reluctant to adopt a new paradigm, in other words, what prevents us from comprehending fully and immediately the things The Committee, the universe, ourselves, is telling us? Is it part of the parley/game? Why can't we comprehend the no beginning and no ending thing? Why can't I comprehend the starry skies and the immensity of space? Is it just reserved for us to know in the here-after? I am of the opinion that we look at incarnation from the heavenly realms in a very idealistic or carefree way. Previous sufferings and all the rest of it has lost its intensity like a mother after giving birth "forgets' all the pain she went through. Alas, a small voice is saying to me "it's part of the game/illusion and play it well." So for me it comes down to accept what is and not so much the comprehension thing. Comprende?
According to Erik from Channeling Erik . . . when they're in in the heavenly realms, trying to hold on to sadness is like trying to hold a balloon underwater.
They can do it briefly, but they can't maintain it.
That has to affect their sense of the hardships they are contracting for when planning a life here I would think. I've read from other sources that many souls try to pack too many lessons into one life and have to be advised to take some of them off the life plan.
I think they are so comfortable there that they forget, just like a mother forgets the pain of childbirth.
Dearest Lorri, you are in constant stress because you are in fear, and you have to let go of the fear...Yes, you've got it, concentrate, focus, consider ONLY WHAT YOU PREFER, THE OUTCOME YOU PREFER, don't care about the rest...Ask your guides for help, talk to them and listen back, listen to the message, listen to your intuition...You can try vizualizing yourself in the situation, papers being thrown all over the place, your adversaries feeling down or shouting because their strategy didn't work out...you don't know if procedural mistakes exist but you would like them to ? CREATE THEM, imagine them, what type they could be (papers missing ? papers not signed ?...), with all your heart...Align with the energy that you are a winner (don't visualize yourself as a poor victim), everything is OK, you are fine, some papers are missing, one of them isn't signed (whatever you want!!)...Use the present tense for all this visualization, not the future, because your victory already exists somewhere and that's what you want to attract,(no other version !) and to become your reality by aligning with it energetically...Truely believe in all of this, as deeply as you can in your heart, that will align you and help you get rid of your fear and stress...Practise and win!! All my love to you, Lysa.
@ Lysa: Excellent advice! The Committee applauds you. Lorri's guides are bowing to you.
Hi Lysa. I manage to stay calm most of the time, and I do visualize what I want. But since I'm human, it's not 100% of the time. Other thoughts will intrude.
To be fair to myself, there aren't many humans who would be fearless with what I am facing. They'd be running down the street like their hair was on fire. In addition, there is no doubt I'm suffering from PTSD because of some of the events connected to this case.
The opposition is very skilled in stoking our fears. It's their job.
I bounce between ignoring it for the present, wondering if I'm being naive to ignore it, preparing notes for my attorney, which draws me back to the subject, and trying to figure out what is the appropriate spiritual way to deal.
Astrology Note: My north node is in the 12th house (along with Jupiter and Neptune) and one of the meanings is a life plan of learning about the spiritual and learning to trust it. The north node is also where the soul has not been before, but is trying to master.
"why are our minds so reluctant to adopt a new paradigm?"
Says The Committee: That is not true. Such resistance is but a learned choice.
"Why can't we comprehend the no beginning and no ending thing?"
C: You can, however you chose to live a life in a body without that immediate experience. So that you will remain in the body, in the classroom to complete the studies you CHOSE to pursue.
Yo comprendo y concuerdo.
Thank you so much Patrick for TC and Lorri's guides' feedback!! It's always a pleasure to honour their teachings and pass them on...(and I deeply know what that means, being a teacher myself...Ha, ha, ha !!!)
I think this is related, and it has been in my mind (near the back) for some time: What happens to our "angry thoughts"? I know many people who become furious when they see or read something that outrages them, generally in the news. They fantasize violence against the perpetrators in some cases.
I was told years ago that "thoughts are things", and given the ubiquity of angry thoughts in this day and age, what are the consequences of those negative ideations?
Some claim that there are negative spirits who "feed" off this anger. Is that right?
Thanks, Patrick and The Committee.
Angry thoughts are a contagion which can re-infect their sender, if they reach and reflect off anyone who chooses to regenerate them, rather than allow them to dissipate.
That is the consequence, the anger spreads. Humans choose to act on their anger, sometimes.
The "negative spirits" who feed off this anger are in bodies, all around us. Sometimes they practice politics.
Ha!Ha!Ha!!!..I love your last sentence!!!...
Thanks, Patrick. With your last sentence, I think I know who they are.
I just got the mail, and I now have my copy, ordered January 4th, of "The Alien Handbook". Just a couple of days ago, Amazon professed to have no idea when they could ship it.
I believe Amazon sends the order to the publisher and cannot know when it's packed, addressed and put into the system. So they manage expectations with very conservative dates of publication and "we don't know" about mailing.
Yes....Committee great explanation and it's what I know and feel.. We are all ONE :-)
I have often thought of god being the collective name of all the souls in the afterlife. A bit like how we give group names to animals.
We're a gaggle of geese!
Dear Patrick & C.
I would like to translate (in italian) some passages of the current post and put it into my facebook page (with the credits and your web link as a footnote)
Some passages are so gorgeous that should be read by my relatives ;)
Have a nice day
Avanti, per favore! Perche io vorrei sapere la reazione
I will inform you when done :)
Have a nice day
I Got The Book Just Delivered !
Excellent. If I could sign it with my autograph, it would also write:
SIT VIS VOBISCUM
Equal time for Trekkers, please:
LONGO VIVAS ET BENE SIT
Not at all incompatible.
More than "not incompatible" they fit together like a foot & shoe (or mouth).
Did Spock ever say that in Latin on the show? I don't think so....but he should have!
I had to look it up . Thank you Patrick XO
@ Lorri : Thank you for your answer Lorri, I understand how you feel... Some Reiki sessions would really help you with your PTSD and help you let go of your fear and stress ...It would also help you in re-empowering yourself, because you are powerful, but you don't seem to feel that way at the moment... Love, Lysa.
Lysa, I am just a human who . . . since 2015 has gone through the initiation of the current threatening lawsuit, the loss of our business because of said lawsuit, a cracked tooth that was the most painful thing I've ever endured, bronchitis, two credit card lawsuits due to the loss of the business, working for a couple of employers who were demons from hell, personal bankruptcy, reuniting with my estranged father, loss of health insurance and untreated health issues, relying on financial help from family, and care-taking my friend/business partner who had two strokes last November, leaving him without the use of an arm and leg until he recovers.
All of that happened in the space of two and a half years. I can hardly believe it myself.
About the lawsuit: There is something mysterious about a key document. Our attorney asked for a copy of it in 2015 and they said they would send it, but they never did. Very strange and not correct procedure. I hope it's missing or there is something compromising about it, because the whole case would be thrown out if so.
I am not all doom and gloom. We do have potential business deals that will eventually pay off extremely well once all the complicated details are worked out. I believe my destiny is golden and there are things I'm supposed to do.
Add "Victim of Credit Card Theft" to the list.
Just got a call from my bank that some clown in San Francisco has been using my debit card for rides on Uber and Lyft.
My info was in the recent Equifax hack. Hope they enjoyed their free rides cause the card just got cut off. ;)
It seems that you stuffed your life plan very hard 8^(
Yes, Pierluigi . . . particularly the last few years.
