On the blog post Dear LOA: Why Are People So Damn Negative, a reader named PH left the following comment: “You stated: ‘Well, the truth is that we didn’t become negatively focused as part of some conspiracy plot to enslave the world.’ How do you know that to be true? How can you be so sure of yourself? Have you read the ‘Ancient History of the Flower of Life’ book? You definitely need to read it before making statements such as that.”
Thank you for asking this question. I get stuff like this a lot and I think your particular comment gives me the perfect opportunity to respond.
No, I haven’t read that particular book, although I’m aware of Drunvalo Melchizedek’s work and I agree with quite a bit of it (not all of it, though). I appreciate him deeply as a teacher. How can I make statements that contradict someone else’s work? Because by doing so, I expand the perspectives that are available for you to choose from. You don’t have to agree with my point of view or anything I say on this site. In fact, I actively encourage people to never blindly agree with anything (even me), but to stay open to different points of view, evaluate them and then choose the one that resonates the most with them in that moment. They can always change their mind later, if a different perspective starts to resonate more. Someone having published an opinion or philosophy that doesn’t match mine doesn’t influence my decision to share my own truth.
How can I be so sure of myself?
So, how do I know what I know? How can I be so sure of myself? Well, I’ll tell you. It took me a long time to become this sure. It took me a long time to trust that my truth was valid for me, and possibly for others. I share it in the hopes that it will resonate with others and that they’ll be helped by it. If someone is not, then that’s ok. If I wrote a song, I wouldn’t expect everyone to like it, either.
I get my information, my philosophy, my perspective from the non-physical. I go into an altered state and I find the best feeling perspective I can find. Some people call this “channeling”, although I’m very much aware of what’s happening, I’m part of the conversation, and I don’t go into a trance. When I am in this state, I have absolute faith in what I’m writing and saying. But, and you really have to remember this, even though I consider what I’m sharing to be the “truth”, it is MY truth. You have to decide if it’s yours. Because there isn’t one truth that will apply to everyone.
There isn’t just one truth
The idea that there’s one truth that will work for everyone in the world has done more damage than almost any other belief. Religions have tried to operate under this paradigm. They’ve even tried to force people to adopt their truths under the penalty of death. They failed, because we are not here to share the same perspective. As I wrote in my last post, we are here to explore different perspectives. So, by design, we are not going to all agree. We have to make peace with that. When we disagree, that doesn’t mean that one of us is right (as in, has the answer that is correct for everyone), and one of us is wrong. It simply means that we resonate with different perspectives, and we’re both right, for ourselves. The trouble only starts when we have the need for others to agree with our point of view in order to feel that our particular view is valid. It’s valid. It’s always valid, whether someone else agrees with it or not. It may not be valid forever, you may well find that another perspective resonates more down the line as you evolve, but that doesn’t mean that you were “wrong” in the past. You’ve simply gained a bigger view, a higher perspective, a new outlook. You see things differently. You may now have an opinion that you couldn’t access a few years ago. The old opinions weren’t wrong, they were just a match to who you were then.
Let me give you an example: Let’s say that you and I go see a movie. I think the movie was hilarious and you think it was crap. Which one of us is wrong? I enjoyed myself immensely and laughed a lot. You hated every minute. Were you wrong to hate it? Was I wrong to enjoy it? Or were we both right? I can give you loads of reasons for why the movie was amazing. And you can give me loads of reasons for why it sucked. We can both back up our opinions and argue that our point of view is the only valid one. Anyone who disagrees with us is an idiot. Anyone can see that this movie is the best/worst movie ever.
The thing is, the movie has no value whatsoever. My opinion of it is just as valid as yours is. The only thing that ever goes wrong is that people need the other person to agree with them so that they can feel secure in the validity of their point of view. And just to drive that point home, I’d like to mention here that I can read Drunvalo’s book, if you like, but there’s no guarantee that I’ll agree with it or come to the same conclusions as he or you did. The beautiful thing is, I don’t need to.
But, what if two years from now, I see the move again and hate it? Was I wrong to like it the first time I saw it? Nope. I’ve simply changed. The movie resonated with me the first time, and a couple of years later, it no longer did. You weren’t wrong to like chocolate mint ice cream as a child, if you no longer do now. You don’t have to agree with anyone else, and you don’t have to agree with your past self. You get to make your own decision each and every moment of each and every day.
On conspiracy theories
So, let’s address the original question – my statement that the bad things in the world didn’t happen due to a big, organized, evil plan to enslave humanity and conquer the world. Although I’ve written about this subject before, I’m happy to address this one point here. Why don’t I believe in the conspiracy theories anymore (I used to, by the way)? Because I no longer believe that anyone else has any power over my reality. No one, not even the evil powers that be, has the power to manifest in my reality. I have to give them that power and I’ve simply stopped doing so.
Even if there are groups of people trying to take over the world, and I do think there are, I don’t care. Ultimately, any action that affects another has to be invited by that other person. That’s how co-creation works. The thief who has beliefs of scarcity (there’s not enough to go around) and powerlessness, believes that the only way he can get ahead is to steal from someone. The Law of Attraction will only allow him to have access to those who are a match to being stolen from, a mirror to their own beliefs of powerlessness and scarcity. The banks and pharmaceutical companies and governments, while easy to blame for all the world’s ills, are merely mirroring back society’s vibrations. When most of us feel powerless, we get fleeced. Notice, however, that those very same events, the ones that reflected our perceived powerlessness, are also catalysts to help us wake up, get angry and take back our power.
I believe, and you certainly don’t have to agree, that blaming the powers that be for our misfortunes, keeps us powerless. When we take back our power, it becomes apparent that those entities and greedy bastards never had any control over us in the first place. It was an illusion. How do I know that? Well, that’s the reality I live in. That’s my experience now. And it feels so much better to me, which is why I chose to believe it in the first place. That belief then got mirrored back to me by my reality.
Did people in the past try to suppress ancient knowledge? I have no doubt that they did. Only, it doesn’t matter. We can’t forget that we all manifest our truth and clarity when we are ready for it. So, the people who suppressed knowledge were simply mirroring the vibrations of those who were not ready for a new paradigm; the actions of those few reflected the limiting beliefs and fears of most of the population. Those same entities are still trying to suppress information, but they’re losing that battle now because we’re collectively ready for more. We manifest our truth whether they like it or not, because they have no power over our manifestations. And those who were ready in the past found their way to enlightenment, no matter what. You don’t have to be told this stuff. You don’t have to read it in a book. No one can keep it from you. You can access it directly, if you like, and even then, it’s not something new. It’s more like remembering something you’ve always known and simply forgot for a while.
It’s in you
The power is within you and it always has been. That’s “the secret”. The information was always accessible to you and to all of us. It can’t be kept from us. It can’t be suppressed. The best anyone can do is distract you, but even that’s only temporary when your desire to know is strong.
All I’ve done is train myself to easily tap into this knowledge. Of course, I can only access what I’m ready for, and I only access what resonates with me. I used to manifest my clarity and truth through teachers (Abraham is one of them), books and other media. I still use those, but mostly, I just get my information directly from the source, if you will. I’ve chosen to make myself available as a conduit for others to manifest their truth through, just as countless others teachers have done and are doing. But I’m not here for everyone. If anything I say doesn’t resonate with you, then that’s not your clarity. Don’t try to take a manifestation that isn’t perfect for you and make it fit. Don’t push against the manifestations of others, and proclaim that they aren’t right for you. Of course they’re not right for you. They’re not your manifestations.
When you do find your truth (and remember, this is a piece by piece, case by case scenario), you’ll KNOW it. You’ll FEEL it. It will resonate so deeply that you won’t be able to deny it. I have that feeling every time I connect. When I stream this much energy, not just for myself, but for all those who will resonate with it, denying that truth would be painful for me. This is why I’m so sure of myself. I don’t really have a choice anymore. I either go with it, accept it fully and let it flow, or pay a huge price for resisting a massive energy flow. I’ve learned not to get in the way of it, to fully allow it and to enjoy the ride.
I believe what I believe because it feels so damn good to me, better than any other perspective I can find. I’m sure of my beliefs because when I’m not, it feels awful. I’ve come to trust that feedback unconditionally and it’s never led me astray. I KNOW what I KNOW. Will I know something else tomorrow? It’s entirely possible. Should that make my readers insecure? Not if they understand that they always have to use their own judgment, and not just blindly trust mine. In other words, if you want to truly understand your own power, you don’t get to be lazy and just leave it to someone else. Find your own truth in every moment. Don’t be hindered by the opinions of others, not even those of your past self.
