Melody is going to be back from Peru next week, yay! I’m so excited!!! I got to have a conversation with her and…. Oh my freaking God! I don’t want to reveal too much, but let’s just say, you are going to be in for a treat! Her vibration is soaring and she can’t wait to share it with ya’ll. In the meantime, here is a repost from a couple of years ago, to get you in the right frame of mind… (Tina, your friendly neighborhood Happy Shiny Puppy Wrangler)

Who thought the first thought? Where did the Universe come from? What’s it all for, anyway? Have you ever grappled with these existential thoughts? Well, today we can grapple together, as I explore and share my perspective and the answers I’ve received in my meditation and channelling sessions. Prepare to go WAY down the rabbit hole today…

Awesome Dudette’s Burning Question:

“Hi Melody! I was watching some films about how big the universe actually is and that led me to this burning question: We are here to benefit all-that-is, to expand and have fun. That feels great and I love it… But, what is the ‘purpose’ of the universe? Is it here to expand and just feel good, like us? But why then did it came into being? And if it is this intelligent consciousness, was it always here?”

Here’s my response:


Oh dear Awesome Dudette, you’ve asked the million dollar question!  I’m going to answer it and I’m also not going to answer it.  I apologize for that but I have to tell you, if you ever find the answer to the origin of the Universe, I would love to hear it.  I can only tell you the answers that I have found and that have satisfied me.  When I’ve meditated on this extensively, and asked my guides again and again about this, here are the answers that I got.

Where did the Universe come from?  Who thought the first thought?

The way that it was explained to me, at first, was that I could not (wouldn’t be able to) understand the answer. It’s a little bit like going to a one celled organism and saying “What is your experience?”, and thinking that you’re going to get an interesting answer. It’s also a little bit like trying to have a verbal conversation with a 2 week old baby. They don’t have any experience but because your experience is so much broader than that, you are not going to have any satisfaction. They are not going to be able to explain to you what it is they are going through or how they’re feeling.

This was the explanation that I got, so I’ve never been able to go back all the way to the origin; it’s so far back.  Also, the message I got was that it’s completely irrelevant to our current experience.  That’s why I said I’m answering it but I’m also not really answering it.

What is the purpose of us being here?

For me, the purpose of us being here, the purpose of the Universe, is like God experiencing him or herself. We are this multi-faceted being (which I’ve explained in a different video); we are this one big giant diamond that got split off into all kinds of smaller diamonds that then split off into smaller diamonds, and those smaller diamonds split off into smaller diamonds and so on. They are all multi-facetted and your consciousness right here, right now, is one tiny little diamond with many different facets.  If you bring them all together we are, at the same time, one big giant diamond, but we are also the little tiny particles.  Yet, in our human experience we cannot really hold the perspective of all those little different diamonds, of all of those different facets, but we can reach for the wisdom and the perspective of the few diamonds up; we can have experiences of other diamond’s facets when we meet up with other people.  At the same time we are individual beings and yet, we are all one.  That’s how I see that represented in my meditations.

We are here to experience, we are here to shift perspective and we’re here to have different experiences; each one of us, having different experiences, going through our lives, making choices.  We’re certainly not meant to suffer, but suffering is also an experience that is open for us to have.   We have complete and total free will and we can have whatever experience we want, and yet a simple shift in our perspective changes our experience completely.

This big diamond wanted to experience more, and as you cut a diamond in half you are giving it more sides, more facets, if that makes any sense.  Every time the diamond is split there are more facets and each one of those facets can represent an experience.  So the more you split it again and again, the more experiences you’re able to have.

A different explanation

That’s just one explanation, there’s another explanation that I also really like, and this one comes from Bashar, who is also a powerful teacher. He talks a lot about the law of attraction and the kind of things that I talk about and his explanation goes as such: If you have a tiny little particle that moves at infinite speed, not the speed of light, infinite speed and its whizzing back and forth, it will eventually reach a point of speed where it would seem to be in more than one place at a time. As it’s whizzing back and forth, that one particle could look like a million particles, and yet it really is just that one particle; it’s just moving really quickly. That one particle is able to experience a place with a 360 degree view, another place with a 360 degree view, and another and another and so on.  This is what we are doing; we are able to experience, through our consciousness, through our specific focus, right here right now. In this one little place you can turn around and get a 360 degree view through your life experience. You are experiencing that little bit, and that all gets added together with everybody else’s experience into a broader experience, then another broader perspective and then again, an ever broader perspective.

Finding your own truth

That’s the purpose of why we’re here. Although I’ve probably thoroughly confused you, but that IS the purpose of why we are here.  We are here to experience, to broaden the perspective of “the One, the Whole, the All That Is.” You can call that God, Source, the Universe, Your Higher Self; call it Bob if you want, it doesn’t really matter, but that to me is why we’re here. If that explanation does not resonate with you then go find your own truth because remember, there isn’t just one truth.  There is a truth you can adopt or not adopt depending on how it feels. This one has satisfied me, because it also opens up the door to say you get to choose your experience; you don’t have to have a negative experience; you can have a positive experience. You can move towards that and you can change your life to having more awesome experiences.

I think the world has experienced enough pain, and now we are able to move into the awesome spectrum. I think that this view gives us permission to do that, and it does really work that way when I’ve applied it to my own life and my clients’ lives. This type of explanation does help, but again, if it doesn’t satisfy you, keep searching and if you ever do find a different explanation for the origin of the Universe or who thought that first thought, then please let me know.  I have not been able to get a better explanation than the one I’m giving you here today.

If you found this content valuable today and not too confusing (we went down the rabbit hole again), please consider sharing it with somebody who would also find it valuable. And if you want to join in the discussion, please leave a comment below.

Huge happy shiny puppy hugs to all of you, and see you next time.



Coaching Call #241 is out! The topic of this week’s call is: Is She Worthy Enough To Attract The Man Of Her Dreams?

This callers last relationship ended recently, and although it wasn’t great she’s wondering if he broke up with her because she wasn’t worthy of him. A guy she met since the breakup isn’t so different from her ex, so what’s going on with her that is causing her to attract men like this?

What is the Universe mirroring back to her with these two guys, and why is she attracting men who don’t make her feel worthy? Can we attract people who will bring out our worthiness if we have feelings of unworthiness? If we want a guy who makes our heart sing, how do we go about manifesting him into our reality?

This call is for you, if feelings of unworthiness are at the forefront of your mind when it comes to attracting your next hot love! You’re welcome!!


Read the full call summary here.

Great post!

My opinion of who thought the first thought is that no one did. Everything is just a whole bunch of thoughts floating around…it is ego that thinks a thought belongs to one person or another.

Byron Katie says something great about this: She says something to the effect of, “I’m not thinking; I’m being thought.” That’s the greatest explanation I’ve found of it.

Everything else I agree with completely. We are the small diamonds, but we are also the one big diamond. And there is really no difference, because in reality there are no small diamonds. :)

Makes me think of that song Sia wrote – “Shine Bright Like A Diamond, Like Diamonds in the Sky!”

As I understand it yes God/Source did split ‘most’ of himself off ——— like you stated. So there is still a God/Source —- bigger than ourselves which we and all creations are also one with.
Some of that ‘intelligent energy’ became planets, suns, stars, plant life, animal life, etc. We are part that became ‘life forms’ versus intelligence that became planets, etc. that reincarnate to experience and create. I am not saying planet, etc. intelligence does not progress also in it’s own sphere.
Am I right? I believe we will understand this better when we leave our temporary human bodies.

To be honest – this concept (while it makes total sense to me) really depresses me. This post along with the post on parallel lives leaves me wondering what the purpose truly is. If my “purpose” is to live my best life and raise my vibration to be a match to the things I want… why should that matter if there is another version of me out there doing just that? Does it truly matter if a person decides to kill someone? They aren’t killing someone in other lives… it just all seems arbitrary. So we are all multi-faceted “diamonds” part of a “bigger diamond”… what’s the point? Again, I’m not disagreeing with this concept but I can’t help but admit how it’s made me feel. Perhaps I’m not a match to it – but if not, then am I not “enlightened”? Perhaps I’m just missing something here… Up until this point everything posted on this blog has given me a sense of hope and excitement… any insight/help would be appreciated! :)

Hi Jak,

Yes, all of our experiences, good and bad, add to the collective experiences of all that is. However, I don’t believe that is our sole purpose in life! It sounds cliché, but I believe that our higher purpose is love. When something negative happens it serves to show us what we don’t want, which helps us to define what we do want, and then we are able to experience it differently.

The concept of enlightenment is a beautiful one, but I don’t like getting hung up on somehow attaining enlightenment, “arriving” there, so to speak. We are all energy and strive to reach higher states of vibration. Maybe a better way to look at it is… we are “waking up”. Some people aren’t awake, yet, but they are on their journeys, too. Jak, since you are asking these questions, seeking clarity, you are definitely part of the “awake crowd”.

Also, see my answer to Nibel, which should clarify what I believe about the diamond metaphor…

I kinda get it but i feel i’m not there yet i guess it would take some time and thinking on my own but the thing that i have a problem with is that if we are all one a big diamond that gets split to smaller diamonds does that mean it’s only me that i exist in this world ? I’m everyone ? There is no others just me ? Are other people just an extension of me ? if that’s so it’s just so damn lonely and deppresing i don’t want to continue living in that case but i don’t feel it’s right i trust my emotions guides if something don’t feel right it isn’t i came to understand that much but it seems i’m missing something i can’t figure it out
P.s English is not my first language so overlook my mistakes please

Hi Nibel,

To build on Melody’s metaphor, while you are one diamond with many facets, you are not the only diamond. We are all part of all that is. People tend to forget that we are not separate, but part of the whole. In that you are never alone. There are many of you, living and experiencing simultaneously, but everyone is part of the bigger picture. Does that make sense?

I always end up thinking about these existential questions. I really like the diamond analogy and would agree with that one – I tend to think every living thing is made of energy and we are all part of the same big ball of energy.

Great Thought,
Here is my personal thoughts, ok,, i think our prime purpose of being here is just for live our life with happy and joy. But happiness is not readymade, its comes from your own action. So, we all are social animals, therefore friendship is very essential. With friendship comes trust, fear and trust go contradition. If there are more fear then can’t develop trust. With fear, how can we develop friendship. However, friendship brings you trust, trust brings you no fear and lonely, no fear and lonely brings you happiness.
