Star Trek, Plugged Up Toilet, Foul Breath, Higher Vibration
If you know me, you know that I love movies. There was a time in my life when I thought that meant that I should, somehow, be involved with movies.
Today I know better. Movies is Source's way to talk to me, to open my mind, make me an Expanding Human Being.
So, what about movies... are you going to talk about them?
Yes, yes. But before I get to them, I'd like to share how I notice that my vibration is significantly higher than it used to be.
Yesterday I heard a knock on my back door, and it was my landlord. Turns out the hot water heater broke and flooded the basement.
He asked for a flashlight, and futzed about for quite a while. An hour later I noticed that the water was shut off. I saw him leave... so I yelled after him: "You never told me you were going to shut off the water, so I can be prepared..." I felt angry for a minute and then I laughed.
My landlord was true to form, totally oblivious of other people's needs, concerns, rights, or anything beyond his own needs and concerns. It is actually funny.
I had an energy treatment and massage appointment today, and I was looking forward to the session and the money... I'll just take a shower in the downstairs apartment, I thought, but turns out the water is turned off in the whole house. Bummer. No water to wash my hands, no water to flush, luckily I had some energy water in my pitchers...
Called the client and canceled. I am not comfortable having a client when I am unbathed, and the toilet is not flushed.
Then I observed my mouth. It went in the usual "I am personally offended" position, corners down, pouting. But the emotion wasn't there. I laughed. I scanned my body, and no sign of tension. Wow. I don't think this ever happened to me before. I had nothing to process, no attitude to adjust, I was just peaceful, cheerful, happy, as if nothing happened.
OK, this is what's possible when you raise your vibration.
Now, onto the movies:
Movie #1: Star Trek, The Next Generation
I was advised by Source to watch this series on my computer. (Oh, no, not another Medium 104-episode run!?)
The episode that seemed to be relevant is where Number 2 is given exceptional powers by Q. Number 2 feels powerful, god-like, and wants to give little tokens of love to the crew: add ten years to young Wesley's age, restore the eye-sight of another crew-member, give a mate to another.
They all decline.
WTF, right? He read their heart's biggest desire, and they didn't want it?
So what's going on?
It all goes back to Man's quest (the soul's quest, really) to fight his own battles, earn his light, and not live on bread of shame.
Young Wesley wants to experience growing up, experience that his mind and capabilities are higher than some of his superiors, and yet he is a careless, ignorant child at the same time.
The sightless crew member wants to continue to have superior "vision" and see the world only he sees it, without eyes to see with.
Lt. Data wants to remain an android, where he can be powerful in spite of his longing for humanity's advantages.
See yourself in the place of either, and see if you would like to be upgraded, in an instant, to a life seemingly without challenges, apparently without needing to apply yourself.
I say "seemingly" because, of course, every life on every level has its own challenges that are custom tailored to what that soul needs.
Now, if that is true, how dare I (or anyone else, for that matter!) to offer assistance to elevate your vibration, fast, and seemingly painlessly.
Got that "seemingly" again?
Exactly. You see, it is all an illusion when you come down to it.
I have testing clients that did not get a higher vibration with the downloads that raised others' by 20-50 points. They started at the same level. And yet. The results are so varied. Why?
Because free will is active, in every moment, on every level. And these testing clients have been driving their upgraded "vehicle" exactly the same way as if nothing had happened. For a week or two, while they were asked to report their progress, their vibration went exactly where it was supposed to go... but then, when they forgot about it, they returned to the old habits, old thinking, old attitudes, their higher vibration disappeared.
It's as if you were using a Firefox browser, the search on the page function is excellent, you know about it, but you still insist on finding the word you need, on a 32-page document, by reading the whole darn thing... 10-second vs. 30+ minutes...
So you see, Q's magical changes, and MY magical upgrades are different. You can always return to your old way of being, without even talking to me again. Or you can use that the changes you asked for during the activation, and realize that they weren't done to you, but you did them for yourself with my help. And begin living consistently with the new power your upgrade provides. The power to feel, experience, respect, love, honor, be cheerful and joyful in the presence of anything.
Indian gurus say that it's because you were able to occupy the observer's point of view. I tend to agree. With one difference, the path to it: Achieving that distance between what's happening and you takes thousands of hours of proper meditation. My experience is that meditating properly is the hardest thing on earth. I have never been able to do that. And yet, I live as if I have.
The other movies are illustrations of different levels of vibration in adverse situations:
"A man escaped" where a man held in Nazi prison plots and executes his escape in a single minded fashion. His prison-mates are resigned, lacking courage. He, on the other hand, is meticulous, and purposeful, and his quest succeeds. A veritable act of higher vibration, power over circumstances.
Promises is a documentary where we watch and listen to Jewish and Palestinian children of the Middle East. Their rigid views, their anger, their powerlessness in the face of a catch 22. The film-makers arrange for a day of sharing food, discussion, and play. Though the transformation in the view of the children is not documented too well, I have measured, and their vibration, especially the Palestinian children's rose by 70... from the anger of a trapped animal that will self-destruct, to a person who feels anger and has a choice whether to act on it or not.
Machuca, another view at children in adversity and irreconcilable differences sees no way out of the situation, no mental higher ground, and leaves its little heroes shattered and wounded, at a lower vibration than where they started.
So, you see, it's all about vibration for me: it is all about your power in the face of adversity, it is all about how good you are willing to have it.
