Chapter 8: (Mystery Missive) With or Without Earbuds
(Mystery Missive delivered by the man who disappeared in front of Tandy)
Chapter one: SMALL INNER SHIFTS MAKE FOR BIG OUTER CHANGES
When you view the world around you without being aware of your own inner guidance system, you’re pretty much stuck in the labyrinth of your ego-intellect. It’s like living with earbuds that continually play the voice of your Inner Critic. Sometimes the voice is loud, sometimes so soft you forget it’s playing. But it’s always there saying things like, “You can’t… you shouldn’t… it’s not done… you’ll be alone if you do… people will judge you… you’re too much so better hold back… you’re not enough so better not try… you might fail…” and any one of the other fear based beliefs you might have learned along the way.
If you’re at all enlightened, you recognize where the voice originated—parents, teachers, friends, colleagues. With the best intentions in the world (at least from their point of view), they were all endeavoring to teach you how to “tow the line” based upon how they believed life needs to be. When you got hurt along the way, you learned to draw conclusions on what does and does not work in order to earn love and avoid pain the next time.
In short, your ego-intellect has been conditioned to maintain status quo at all times in order to keep you “safe” from perceived threat. If you’ve learned to resist change, it’s going to fight for all its might against it, even in the face of an ever-changing world. If you’ve learned that change is good, exciting even, its status quo is to create change even when it’s not necessary. In either case, it can create upheaval and unnecessary drama, which isn’t the most pleasant way to live life.
You can achieve things—even great things—through your ego-intellect, of course, but at a much greater cost to yourself and loved ones than necessary. Ramming your way through to a new status quo on will-power alone creates higher stress levels that will eventually take their toll because there’s less down time for your brain to relax and let your creativity flow. It doesn’t take a masters degree in psychology to understand your ego-intellect also blocks your flow of love because it isn’t designed to love. It’s designed to manage.
Plus, your ego-intellect can only operate through past experience, so it has the tendency to project and predict your future possibilities based upon past conditioning. As an added weight, there’s also those knee jerk reactions that pop up when you feel threatened in any way.
Who wants just that, especially when you can have so much more? Living life to the fullest here on Earth is all about taking out the earbuds that play the voice of your Inner Critic, and letting your ego-intellect experience a spiritual transformation so it gets in alignment with your innermost heart of hearts.
When you let your ego-intellect work together with your own Divine Soul—the innermost part of you that’s consciously aware of your connection to all of creation—you start to realize through experience that there are no real limits, just the ones you impose on yourself.
WHO ARE YOU?
That’s a question everybody asks themselves at some time in their lives. Let’s face it head on.
You are Unconditional Divine Love (i.e.: a Divine Soul), hanging out in a human body for the duration of your visit here on Earth. You know that deep inside of you, so you might as well tap into it while you’re here. If you don’t, it’d be like going to some exotic tropical island, or mountain, or resort, or wherever you think it would be fun to visit, and just sitting in your room looking outside the window instead of going out and enjoying it.
Making friends with your Divine Soul, and letting your ego-intellect work in tandem, is like having an unlimited bankcard that lets you withdraw anything and any amount you want from the Universal Bank of Being.
The more your ego-intellect makes friends with your Divine Soul, the easier it is to move to the other side of past conditioning, and on a voyage into the deepest part of your heart of hearts where you know beyond the muddiness of fear-conditioned doubt that you are, indeed, unconditional Divine Love.
The more you do that, the easier it is to use that unlimited bankcard.
Why imprison yourself with horrible conditions, when you don’t have to have any? Stand up and be your glorious self. Use that cosmic bankcard to its fullest advantage! Let your ego-intellect experience a spiritual transformation so it lives in harmony with your deepest heart’s desires.
If you think of money, why withdraw ten from the Universal Bank of Being if you want ten million?
If you want to express your creativity, find your voice, build your career, or anything your heart desires for that matter, why wait in the corner for someone to give you permission when all you really need to do is give yourself permission?
If you want loving relationships, why settle for “good enough? You not only deserve free flowing love, it’s your birthright and who you are. Learn to love, nurture, and respect your self as you want others to, and you’ll soon find that’s exactly what they’ll do in return because you’re showing them how.
So draw as much “cash” as you want out of the Universal Bank of Being because it’s just sitting there waiting to be invested in your direction.
DIVINE LIGHT IS THE “CASH” IN THE UNIVERSAL BANK OF BEING
Divine Light is made up of three aspects:
- Infinite Intelligence that knows all things because it created all things and has no limits.
- Omniscient (All Knowing) Wisdom that knows how to manage all things in the best way possible.
- Omnipotent (All Powerful) Unconditional Love that can evolve all things in the highest good of all creation.
Remember this about Divine Light:
- It’s invisible, yet equally everywhere present and active at all times. Think of it like the air. You can’t actually see it, but you can see its effect as wind in the trees, or as a cloudy puff of breath in front of your face on a cold winter’s day.
- Since it is Omnipotent , there is no power greater than Divine Light. In the Western World, some call it God. Others interpret it as Holy Spirit when it is in movement. The Hebrew Kabalah speaks of it, as do all the Great Religions. No matter what name you call it, there is nothing greater. How could there be? All things are made from it.
- It manifests from the invisible to visible realms through thought. That’s one reason why clear choices are so important. And why it’s so important to understand what’s going on in your subconscious world.
- It only knows creation. That means it doesn’t move and manifest in the direction you want it to if you only tell it what NOT to do. You have to have a clear idea of how you DO want it to flow. We’ll talk more about that later.
- It is unconditional in nature. That means it doesn’t take sides… decide for you… punish… reward… nor make bargains.
- It is always flowing through you, manifesting itself through every cell of your body as well as every thought you have. This is what creates your life experience.
I talk about Divine Light in all my books as well as my website. It’s fundamental to everything, and a self-awakening spiritual journey without recognizing its existence is like trying to start a car with no gas in the engine.
When I’m doing a Divine Soul Session with an individual client, if they’re truly open and curious, they will more often than not drop deep enough into their heart space to be able to actually see the material world around them shift into its pure Divine Light form. Combined with the physical sensations, which are exquisitely pleasing, it’s hard to doubt the concept of Divine Light Vibrations. Everything literally pulsates and emanates Divine Light. Of course, it helps that I’m there holding the vibration for them. Still, if my Divine Soul could teach me on my own, so can yours.
So try to be curious as you ponder what Infinite Intelligence, Omniscient Wisdom, and Omnipotent Unconditional Love can really mean. Since your concept of it will change as you grow, try not to be attached to your first impression. We’ll cover this more in the upcoming Channel Changes, but for now, just play with it. Give your ego-intellect a day off from managing and controlling, and let it become the interested observer.
Are you ready? Be open… curious… and interested to know yourself on more intimate levels.
HOW YOU CREATE YOUR LIFE EXPERIENCE
What you bring into your life experience is primarily based on how and where you focus your attention and let your thoughts flow. Thoughts color your perceptions, which color your experiences, which do a whole lot more than color your behaviors. In fact, it’s the sum total your thoughts and perceptions—both conscious and subconscious—that drive your behaviors.
Why let the past conditioning of your ego-intellect drive your behavior? That only creates more of what you already know, and gives your Inner Critic power it doesn’t need to have. It just doesn’t make sense. Not when you have that bankcard waiting for you in your heart of hearts.
If any one of these things doesn’t make sense, or if they push your resistance-buttons, first take it into meditation and ask for the Infinite Intelligence, Omniscient Wisdom, and Omnipotent Unconditional Love of Divine Light to transform your resistance or confusion into illumination. You’ll find the “Basic Activation of Divine Light Vibrations Guided Meditation” is perfect for doing just that. You can access it on the website divinelightvibrations.com. There is more detailed information on the website, as well links to a published book that talks about the 14 Principles of Unconditional Love. If you have any questions and you can’t find the answer, you have my full permission to contact me through the website, or leave a comment on one of the posts. I read them all.
Or just keep reading…
I’m about to give you six keys to help you shift your focus and change mental channels so that your bankcard to the Universal Bank of Being is always with you. Think of these channel changes like pieces of intellectual cosmic candy that’ll keep your ego-intellect happily engaged, calm the voice of your Inner Critic, and help you focus on recognizing your Divine Soul’s vibrational communication and guidance.
Remember, you are built with a natural self-awareness mechanism that can take you to places and dimensions of living love that you can’t even conceive of at this point. The trick is you’ve got to exercise it by looking in the right direction or it will atrophy. Which brings us to the first key…
Warning: Don’t skip over something thinking, “Yeah, yeah, been there, read it, done it.” Your Divine Soul is working with you on subtle levels, so pull out those old earbuds, and read on as if you’re hearing it for the first time.
What a bunch of truck, Tandy thinks. This is nothing but blatant advertising. She tosses the papers to one side. They skid across the wooden floor to the edge of her aromatherapy circle of candles. Whoever wrote this needs to work on their marketing skills. Use the Internet instead of attacking defenseless women in the middle of the night.
She checks her phone to see if Karl called and she somehow missed it. That’s when she realizes her recording has made its way through the ethers and is sitting in Karl’s phone. A sick feeling washes over her, and she pulls a pillow to her chest for comfort as she rocks back and forth. It’s been too much. All of it. She finally collapses onto the other pillow and curls up into a little ball, willing it all to just go away.
Try as she might, she can’t shake off the most unsettling thought of all: The mystery man actually disappeared in front of her very eyes.
