Uncovering Blocks To Progress

I haven’t written much in this blog since the spring of 2018, and I’ve been trying to figure out why. So I’ve turned for insight to a template called The Wheel of Creation, first channeled by my late partner and psychic business associate Stuart “Alex” Lucker and expanded upon by me over the years since his death.

The Wheel of Creation: 7 Keys to Manifestation.

The Wheel of Creation is a great template to use when trying to figure out how to manifest a desired experience, things like business prosperity, physical health, or an improved intimate relationship. And the Wheel is also a really useful tool for helping figure out what’s blocking the manifestation of a desired experience.

Over the years, my clients and I have found the Wheel of Creation template incredibly useful for figuring out what might be blocking us from achieving a wide range of specific goals. For example, I could use the Wheel to help achieve some of my physical goals (“developing and following a nurturing fitness plan”, “generating $400 of additional income this month”); emotional goals (“reducing nighttime anxiety contributing to chronic insomnia”, “reducing toxic levels of shame about my body size, shape, proportions, and age”); intellectual goals (“coming up with a dynamite conclusion to my nearly-finished science fiction murder mystery novel, Centaur Station“); and spiritual goals (“improving my sense of conscious contact with the Divine Heart of Love”).

My Big Problem Right Now: Unblocking This Spirit Blog

Now my problem with this spirit blog is not that I haven’t been manifesting it. I’ve done so for years. The problem is that I stopped manifesting it for months. Why? Addressing the questions on the Wheel above, I methodically work through each, asking myself, “How might this apply to my difficulty in returning to regularly writing and posting my blog?”

PASSION: What specific, concrete vision do I really want this blog to manifest? What comes up: Financial prosperity—I want it eventually to attract at least four paying clients a week; a sense of purpose; a sense of worth; spiritual experiences while “channeling” my blog as “The Family”; a sense of wonder that I can share with others; helping others find hope.

BELIEF: Do I truly feel I deserve my dream? What comes up: Yes, I deserve the aforementioned vision to be fulfilled, as long as it hurts no one in the process or gives me a swelled head. Do I truly feel it is possible given my true present inner & outer circumstances? What comes up: Unsure. I don’t have a lot of expertise with Internet marketing. I don’t have a fund of capital to invest in a business. And part of me is afraid that if I do become successful and visible, I will become the target of hate and scorn from Fundamentalists and skeptics.

STRATEGY: What series of steps must I take today to get from where I really am to where I really want to be? What comes up: (1) Today, ask for help from Spirit. (2) Today, seek via Duck Duck Go (the search engine I prefer over Google, as Duck Duck Go doesn’t track where I go and what I do) “blog promotion on Internet.” (3) Today, go to my Facebook pages and assess how I can use them to get the word about my blog out there. (4) Today, send out a link to my blog to all my former and current psi clients, just to let them know it’s out there. Ask, “What sorts of issues/topics/avenues of enquiry would you like to see me cover on my blog?”

A Message from Rand: The Ruling Fear Meditation

My late partner, Stuart “Alex” Lucker, channeled a writing exercise designed to help people identify what we want—or fear—most about a certain situation or aspect of our lives. This exercise, which I call the Ruling Passion Meditation, can be applied to subjects we would consider negative. So for this blog post, we’re going to take on the topic of our fears.

The Ruling Fear Meditation

  1. Number a sheet of paper  from 1 through 21 down the lefthand side.
  2. Set your timer for 5 minutes.
  3. Now write down everything you are afraid of, big, small, and in between. Write down whatever occurs to you, no matter how you are tempted to deny it. (Only you are going to see this exercise sheet, so you can be totally honest with yourself.)
    • The fears you write down might include fears around physical matters such as money, an upcoming vacation, losing one’s job, the roof of your house caving in, screwing up the math exam, contracting a terminal illness, nuclear war, being cut out of mother’s will, bankruptcy, staying fat forever.
    • Your fears may include inner, feeling-oriented matters such as a spouse leaving you for someone else; trouble with in-laws; the safety and happiness of your child or pet; rejection by teachers, family, and potential life-partners; feeling alone and unloved.
    • Deep intellectual, spiritual, and ethical fears, too, can be listed, such as fear that death is the end and a loving Higher Power is a fantasy; fear you have missed your true life’s purpose; fear you have chosen the wrong profession; fear that your work accomplishments will be derided, stolen, disproved, or forgotten.
  4. Try to come up with 21 different or related fears, one fear per line. If you can’t think of 21, or if you think of more than 21, list all those you can think of and stop there.
  5. Next, we’re going to grade the fears by intensity.
    • Set your timer again, this time for 2 minutes.
    • Read each fear in turn, asking yourself, “On a scale of 1 through 5—1 being the absolute worst, and 5 being simply bothersome—how strong is this fear in me today?” Number each fear from 1 to 5. Go down the list ranking each fear as quickly as possible, guessing if you’re not sure; don’t overthink it.
    • Now put a check mark next to all the fears you ranked number 1 or number 2. These are your Ruling Fears, the things, people, situations, and/or outcomes you most dread. Now you can take these fears and work on finding all the support you may need for taking action on how to prevent what you most fear from manifesting.

A Message From “The Family”: On Ghosts, Aliens, Spirit Guides and Hauntings, Part 1

tree_huggers

And we thank you for sharing.

On the subject of ghosts and spirits much has been written, yet Mister Rand is desirous of our thoughts on these subjects. So we share what we know of them from our perspective as conduits [to the nonphysical worlds]. From the perspective of the nonphysical self, ghosts spirits, aliens, and hauntings all derive from individual need for those experiencing them to connect to their Greater Self and the transfinite aspect of the superpersonality.

That is, a ghost for one person may meet that person’s specific need for experience; as may an alien UFO sighting or a spirit guide manifestation. So in a sense, every person’s experience of the unseen is slightly different from anyone else’s experience of it.  This is not to say that these experiences are bogus or aways generated by the fears and hopes of the experiencer. Sometimes they are, but not always, particularly in those cases when multiple experiences of very similar phenomena have been recorded by people who differ greatly from one another regarding their beliefs in the occult or the spiritual or the Woo Woo Land as some may individuals term it (<-this is a joke.) So we may organize the different experiences of spirits, boojums, fairies, pookahs, redcaps, trolls, dragons, Grey Men, demons, elves, and so forth according to which spoke on the Wheel of Creation they correspond to.

Spirits of Passion: What we may term “spirits of passion” are other-worldly beings generated by sexual frustration; that is, thought- and feeling-forms arising from the experiencer’s passionate desire to merge with a human being the way that experiencer remembers having merged with All-That-Is before birth. Such spirits may take the form of fantasy sexual figures, sex gods and goddesses from mythology, lovers the experiencer has enjoyed (or wishes s/he had enjoyed) in the past, or even animals. In many cases the experiencer is led into an Underworld by such a spirit, or appears to be; or feels the spirit physically present during sexual self=manipulation; or has a dream in which such union takes place. Such spirits are normally thought-forms, and the extent to which they appear frightening or malignant is usually a sign of the experiencer’s own attitudes towards his or her sexuality and sexuality in general, formed in part by culture and in part by molestation or sexual abuse in childhood or young adulthood. It is in fact during young adulthood that such spirits of passion are most often manifested, for this is a time of enormous outpouring of sexual energy within the nervous system and cells of humans.

Where such spirits appear to take on deviant forms, or forms that mock the accepted morality of the experiencer’s religious training or upbringing, they usually mask a desire below the consciousness of the experiencer to satisfy the feelings of the body without the guilt, shame, or moralizing associated with such feelings. This does not mean that all sexual urges should be acted upon. Some, such as pedophiliac fantasies, or rape fantasies, would if acted upon cause harm to others, and this is not acceptable if one wishes to rise above consciousness levels of Force, Threat, and Blame and embrace creative, joygiving consciousness levels of Acceptance, Understanding, Giving, Loving, and Knowing That One Already Has all that one needs. However, all such images ought to be interacted with, particularly if they are disturbing to the experiencer; and counselors can be useful for this.

Spirits of Belief: Spirits of belief are spirits that come in response to the experiencer’s desire for understanding the true values of life. Often such experiencers are religious people who are losing their faith, and so they experience visitations which seem to shore up their faith and strengthen it, according to these experiencers’ needs and symbols. Other spirits of belief come to inspire intellectual understanding by facilitating the explorer’s perceptions of connections among otherwise seemingly disconnected phenomena. So for the first spirit of belief, the spirit of faith, the experiencer might encounter a visitation by a religious figure or icon that is common within his or her belief field. In the [case of the] second spirit of belief, the experiencer might experience feeling filled with creative or philosophical certainty, as though a Greek Muse had descended upon him or her and granted him or her momentary genius. (For most people are geniuses, though they may not know it.)

Spirits of Strategy: Spirits of strategy are messengers from the past or future or an alternative present, that is, one that exists in another space-time continuum parallel to the one in which you find yourself as you read this. Some spirits of strategy take the form of the experiencer’s ancestors; others, as figures from science fiction. Other spirits of strategy have messages from the past self [or a self] in another incarnation. During past life regressions, the being is a spirit of strategy that appears at the bottom of the rainbow staircase to lead the regressee into a past life useful for him or her to know. During future-castings, a spirit of strategy may appear as a guide showing the way to a desired future, or a warner-away designed and determined to help the experiencer avoid a possible future that would not fulfill his or her desired life purpose. We call these spirits “spirits of strategy” because a strategy is a roadmap for getting from where one really is to where one really wishes to be, and once cannot devise, understand, or execute such a strategy unless one has made peace with the past.

Spirits of Harmony: Spirits of harmony are in many ways the most emotionally fulfilling of the spirits to be experienced. Angels, maternal figures, goddesses of mercy such as Kwannon, Jesus, the Shekinah–figures of mercy, compassion, forgiveness, and love often fall into this designation. Often these spirits are experienced in the Dream State, during prayer, or during meditation, but their effect is always to reassure, calm, and support peace within the heart of the experiencer. Spirits of harmony can be resisted, and when they are resisted they may take frightening forms symbolic of the experiencer’s resistance to acceptance and growth in the area represented by the symbols involved. But as soon as such frightening forms are confronted, and it is demanded, “Who are you and what do you want?”, they dissolve, revealing behind them the loving presence that was there all along.

Mister Rand experienced such a spirit of harmony one day when he was driving back from a twelve step meeting. He felt a spiritual presence around him that seemed to wish to crush him into obedience or conformation with a moral value that Mister Rand did not recognize as valid. So Mister Rand [thinking the spirit making itself known was from the Creator of All or God) cried out, “You made me a homosexual. So if you want a relationship with me, you must accept me as a homosexual, for that is what I am.” And immediately the feeling of the presence shifted to one of unconditional love and acceptance. Mister Rand had confronted his own self-rejection, and his thought form, which had been masking the true Presence of Love, dissipated.

The Wheel of Creation: Communication

ImageThe sixth spoke of the Wheel of Creation I call communication. In the Wheel diagram it lies directly opposite the hub from the passion spoke, and this is no accident. When enthusiasm for a project flags, one of the best ways to revive that enthusiasm is to talk about it to someone supportive who shares similar enthusiasms.

Communication also factors into making a dream come true because, since dreams are realized via interdependence rather than independence, I must be able to share my ideal vision with others in order to find resources to help me take action on my dream realization strategies. How I communicate my vision—through words, spoken or written, through images, through groups, through ads, through talks, workshops, or through one-on-one confabs—is important, too. Some visions are suitable for mass marketing and others aren’t. Talking to others who have  realized dreams similar to my own can give me clues to the best way to build a bridge between my heart’s desires and those who can help me fulfill them.

Also bear in mind that some people are doers, some are feelers, and some are primarily knowers. Doers tend to respond to concrete descriptions and bottom line facts: who, what, where, how much, and what’s in it for me? Feelers tend to respond to personal contact, anecdote, and individual reaching-out. Knowers tend to respond to the big picture, subtlety, nuance, and elegantly constructed, patterned presentations.

A final aspect of the communication spoke is the need for me to keep up a running dialogue throughout the dream-manifestation process with my Greater Self. If you are an atheist materialist, you may think of your Greater Self as your rational adult self. If you are religious, you may think of your Greater Self as God, your oversoul, or a spiritual figure for whom you feel a connection. Ask for your Greater Self to send you serendipitous opportunities to clarify your passion, firm your beliefs, refine your strategies, take more efficient action, and find deeper sources of support. Then let go of the need to control exactly how, when, where, and from what direction these opportunities arise. Try it! It works!

The Wheel of Creation: Support

ImageIn absolute terms, the “self-made” man or woman does not exist in physical reality. A person may be self-directed; he or she may be omnicompetent. But no one makes their dreams come true without help. This is the main principle of the support spoke of the Wheel of Creation.

Asking for help is very difficult for many of us. We are taught from earliest childhood to become self-sufficient, and in the dog-eat-dog world of corporate competition, to ask for help is often seen as a sign of weakness and therefore of inferiority. But as a person ages, the illusion of complete self-sufficiency begins to waver. One becomes aware of limitations one was not aware one possessed, whether they be physical limitations (dwindling economic resources, difficulty walking or lifting heavy objects), mental limitations (changing memory storage capacity), emotional limitations (tendency to emotional exhaustion), or spiritual limitations (a long-held world-view challenged by new information).

In making a dream come true, asking for help from other human beings is always necessary, not just once, but many times along the way. Therefore, learning to ask for help effectively is vital to dream-realization.

Asking For Help: Some Guidelines

  1. Write up a flexible, detailed working strategy for making your dream come true, listing for each stage of the strategy questions to be answered,  resources to be gathered, and skills to be mastered or hired.
  2. Drawing upon your experience, your research, and the experience and research of others, identify potential sources of help for each stage of your dream manifestation strategy.
  3. When time comes to approach potential helpers, work out what you are going to say beforehand. The goal is to ask for what you really need to help you execute that stage of your strategy, not what you think you can get.
  4. Ask at a time and place convenient to the potential helper.
  5. Be prepared to offer something concrete in return for the help you are requesting, if only a heartfelt “Thank you!”
  6. If the person or institution approached for help does not respond to your request for help, ask and keep on asking until they (a) turn you down, (b) help you, or (c) refer you to someone else who might be able to help you.
  7. If you are unable to locate help for the strategy-step immediately before you, re-examine your strategy. Is this truly the next step in your dream-scheme, or is there a different step you should consider taking first? Also consider the possibility that your Greater Self sees a broader picture than you do, and may be closing one door only to open another.
  8. Be sure and send the person who helps you a thank-you note afterwards. This will make it far more likely that she or he will be kindly disposed to helping you in future.

The Wheel of Creation: Action

ImageExternal action is necessary to make my dreams come true. That is, I must take tangible steps to create the physical networks, resources, and structure sufficient to support my dream when I download it from the dream-state into physical reality.

So far, in the first four blogs on the Wheel of Creation, we have dealt with largely internal action steps: passion (recognizing what I truly want), belief (expanding my value and cognitive understanding sufficiently to permit my dream to become a reality), and strategy (coming up with a mental plan for connecting to the resources necessary to download my dream into spacetime). Now we face the task of taking action to actually apply our strategy on a day to day basis until our dream is realized and our passion is satisfied.

Some issues to examine when considering this step:

  1. What specific act can I accomplish today, just as I am, with all my present imperfect resources, strengths, and skills, to get one step closer to making my dream a reality?
  2. If I feel overwhelmed by the idea of taking action, my strategy may be an idealized one that does not begin with where I really am. I may need to go back and refine my strategy so that each step is doable (with help).
  3. If I keep not taking action on a well thought out strategy, it may be that my vision of what I truly want to create is not sufficiently clear, or that its manifestation appears to threaten something I secretly want more. I may need to go back and do the Ruling Passion Exercise to get in touch with what I truly want, not what I think I should want.
  4. Fear can block me from taking action. If I believe that I will be punished for being successful I will tend to drag my heels at applying my strategy. So I must rework my strategy to include steps for acknowledging and working with such fears when they arise.

As a general principle, I tell my clients not to let three days go by without taking a step to get closer to realizing a specific dream. But no matter how hard I work to reach such a goal, I will not be able to do so without support.
