From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo November 2005
Today is 11/11 and as I write this, the energy is calm and peaceful and yet it has an exciting, anticipatory edge to it. September and October were a roller coaster ride for me. I'm not saying that it is over, but just for the moment, the roller coaster has just come down its last hill and is pulling into the ticketing area. When it comes to a halt, some people will get off as the ride operator comes around asking if anyone wants a re-ride. I have a pocket full of tickets. Hmmm…what will I choose? You see, the ride does not always have to be about bad stuff and the roller coaster has always been my favorite amusement park ride. What will I choose?
Anyway, September and October were quite a ride. After spending twelve marvelous, relaxing days in northern Minnesota during the first two weeks of September, I returned to St. Louis to find my dad in the hospital and to what appeared to be a career setback. It seemed as though a door had been closed on me. It actually stunned me for a couple of days to the point of being numb but then I began to evaluate what this was and what it was about, discerning what was my stuff and what was not, while extracting those nuggets that would facilitate learning and growth and began to let it all go.
As I surrendered, released and processed the situation, new, even more exciting opportunities and possibilities began to present themselves and are now in the process of coming to fruition. In the meantime, I was able to spend some additional time with my dad as his health declined and he peacefully made his transition on October 2nd.
Even as the new opportunities were showing up, I was still working through the emotions caused by the career situation and then I stepped into the grieving process. There were days when I felt beat up and completely unmotivated. It seemed as though things were coming at me from all sides. I truly love what I do…the Life Empowerment Sessions, the coaching, the channeling, the writing, the facilitating…but there were days when I didn't want to do any of it, so I did only what was minimally necessary. I have since snapped out of that, most of the time, although the processes continue.
Moving into mid-October, I went out of town for a couple of days to attend a surprise birthday party for a friend of mine and things started to loosen up for me. A week later came the social event of the year. LOL! Two very dear friends of mine got married. He had been the drummer in my band for all the years on the road and she had been his girlfriend, roommate and significant other for twenty years! After twenty years, I suppose they finally decided that it would work and they had the most elegant wedding that I had ever attended. They thought of everything, including a real band instead of a DJ. The band was led by an old friend of ours and the lead singer was an old high school friend of mine.
I knew that some of the guys who had been in our old band, The Spirit Of St. Louis, would be there. A couple of days before the wedding, the groom called me and said that we might play, so perhaps I would want to consider taking out one of my bass guitars and become reacquainted with it again. It had been six years since we had performed together and during that time, most of us had not played at all.
I chose an old Fender Jazz Bass that I have, took it out of the case and discovered that it was in perfect tune! That alone, is highly unusual and I took it as an encouraging sign.
The night of the wedding arrived and there were six of us who agreed to play:
John (the groom): Drums
Jim, the leader of the band performing at the wedding played Trumpet.
We stepped onto the stage, checked our tuning, looked at each other, chose a song…Knock On Wood by Eddie Floyd, key of E (the original version)…1, 2, 3, 4 and we were off and running! After six years, it was amazing how quickly we fell into the pocket and for next twenty or twenty-five minutes it was one old rhythm and blues classic after another…songs like But It's Alright by J. J. Jackson, Higher and Higher by Jackie Wilson and closing with one of my all-time favorites that we had used as a show closer many times, Try A Little Tenderness by Otis Redding.
I cannot describe the feelings that I had while we were playing and even afterwards…exhilaration, excitement, joy, happiness and accomplishment, among others. There is a connection that remains with all of us even after all those years, that is quite incredible. Back in the days when we were performing together regularly on the road, I don't think we realized what that connection really was, but it was there then, it is there now and I am eternally thankful and grateful for it and for those guys being in my life.
That night was just the energizing boost that I needed and here it is 11/11 and in my world, all is well!
"Sir, would you like a re-ride on this fine roller coaster?" says the operator. My response? "What the hell; why not! Let's just keep moving forward!"
I express to you my most sincere thanks and gratitude for this forum. If it is your choice, feel free to tell your friends about Healing The Universe.

THE CLEAR VIBRATION™ November 2005 Installment # 33
Dearest Warriors Of The Light…
WE ARE ONE and we are honored to be here, once again, in this extraordinary moment of NOW and in the presence of the magnificent angelic energy that is you, to continue the on-going fulfillment of our mission with Joe by presenting another edition of:
WHAT ARE YOU PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
Last time, we posed this question to you as a tool for you to use in attempting to peel back the layers of stuff that you have so magnificently created to hide who you truly are, not only from others, but especially from yourselves. A major part of playing this role of Human, as you know, is forgetting everything that you know…forgetting who you truly are…and then, remembering as much of it as you can.
At this time, we wish to continue in the direction of this thought-group by requesting that you once again ask yourself the question:
WHAT AM I PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
Much has been said and written about this idea of contracts. We have often and spoken of this and feel that it is important enough to speak of this again…that prior to each incarnation, you make contracts regarding your purpose and passion in the lifetime, contracts to work with and learn certain lessons and contracts with certain people to facilitate the lessons. You even make back up plans just in case certain people's paths do not cross and just in case your path does not cross with other certain people as planned, due to free choice, causing people to be or not to be in your life. Just to give you an idea of how much time you spend setting up each lifetime, if there actually was linear time on our side of the veil, you spend about twelve times as much time in setting up the lifetime as the actual lifetime lasts! A lifetime of say, eighty years takes what appears to be nine hundred sixty years to plan and the planning, adjusting and readjusting continues at the soul level even as the human life is being lived. At this time, we are not going to discuss past, present and future existing simultaneously, how many lifetimes you are living simultaneously or the number of dimensions in which you are existing simultaneously. This would only serve to confuse the issue at hand and we will add this into the mix at another time.
Among the contracts that you may make include but are not limited to choices about mom and dad, families, friends, purpose and passion, career paths, co-workers, astrological sign, primary and secondary life lessons, belief systems, etc. Perhaps you have even made a contract that hinders your ability to manifest in some or all areas of your life. In this process, you have covered all the bases, planned for contingencies and have even kept yourself open and flexible to continuous planning throughout the lifetime. You have done all this planning for the purpose of facilitating whatever it is that you have chosen to accomplish during the incarnation.
NOW, many of you are wondering what this has to do with the question at hand:
WHAT ARE YOU PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
You are PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW Who You Truly Are…The Angelic Energy, The Piece of God, The God/Human, The Intentional Creator that you truly are…and also the extent of your capabilities. A few of you actually do know this in your heart and soul and attempt to live this as much as you possibly can, when you do not allow your human self to get in the way; some of you "know" this intellectually and attempt to live this because you think that this is what you should do in order to live a more spiritually evolved life; many more have no idea or reference point for this.
It really does not make much difference where you are with this at this time. What is important is that you are at the very least open to the possibility that you have made contracts and that through these contracts, you have set up the lifetime. Do not be confused. This does not state or even imply pre-destination. Pre-destination implies that everything is written in stone, that no matter what you do, it cannot be changed. Pre-destination implies that you are locked in to a certain fate, that no matter what choices you make, the same outcome will result.
Planning or setting up a lifetime is quite different, in fact, it is the complete opposite. In this case, you plan to work on certain things, you plan to do it with certain people, you plan to do it a certain way and you also make backup plans in the event that certain people, places, things and events do not cross your path. You are born into the incarnation forgetting everything you know including who you truly are and the purpose of the incarnation and due to Free Choice, once you are born, All Bets Are Off! Almost anything can change at this point and it often does!
The key to all of this is Free Choice. You all have it. You wrote this into the game plan as the primary rule of the game and as a result, It Is Your Birthright…because you said so!
Now, based on the choices that you have made in your life up to this point, certain people, places, things and events have either crossed or not crossed your path. Some of the contracts that you have made with others and that they have with you have not been kept…have been broken…unconsciously, through no fault of yours or anyone else's due to the choices that you and/or others have made. This is not bad or good, right or wrong. It is only what is.
Since you are powerful enough to break these contracts unconsciously, it is also possible that you are powerful enough to amend, break and issue new contracts consciously. There is no limit to what you are capable of doing in this area, as soon as you truly know your capabilities.
There are some who are comfortable with amending or breaking some contracts, for instance, those that may have to do with manifesting in some or all areas of their lives, but may feel very uncomfortable in other areas or may even believe that it is only possible or only right to do this in certain areas. This is your choice, as always, but we say to you that you are each powerful enough to amend, break and issue new contracts in any area of your life. If you do not like your astrological sign, you can change it; if you do not like your primary life lesson, you can change it. You are in charge. There is no right or wrong here. We are not saying that you must change your contracts and we merely suggest that you do what you want to do, what truly resonates with you.
As an example, have you not heard of humans who are born male who then wish to live as female and then do so; or, are born male and wish to be female…and then have become female? At a more simplistic level, have you not heard of humans who are born into Catholicism who then wish to practice a different form of Christianity or Judaism, Buddhism, some other religion or spiritual path, etc., and then do what is necessary to become a participant? Of course, you have. You may even be one of those humans.
We can already hear those of you who are the thinkers…the analyzers…saying that a person who is born male, who chooses then to be female and then does what is necessary to become female is not breaking a contract at all, that this was the contract. In some cases, this is correct, however, in other cases, it is not. We do not condemn you for thinking; in fact, we have merely given you food for thought. Chew it thoroughly and above all…Have Fun!
Truly now, WHAT ARE YOU PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
Unity Consciousness and Individual Essence
As you continue to move forward or sometimes backward, as the case may be, in any one moment, through the process of what you call human and/or spiritual evolution, there has been much discussion of this thing called Oneness or Unity Consciousness. It is possible that there has been some misinterpretation of what this really is or how this is supposed to look, much the same way as the message given by the one called Jesus was misinterpreted. His message, to paraphrase, was, "See what I can do and know that you are capable of this and more." It was not, "Place me on a pedestal and worship me as God."
All of you and all of us are One. We are all of the same source. We are all connected.
The example of the ocean has often been used to illustrate this Oneness.
If you take a drop of water and separate it from the ocean, does it not still contain the properties of that which is called the ocean? Of course, it does. Although separated from the large body of water called the ocean, it is still a piece of the ocean. When the drop is returned to the larger body of water, it is still the ocean although in returning, the drop is seen more clearly as part of the ocean. This has been a good example of Oneness in describing your relationship with and to that which is Oneness and is still relevant for some levels of comprehension, but let us see if we can refine this a bit and further clarify.
The confusion arises when some humans have concluded that returning to Oneness or stepping into Unity Consciousness means that one must lose himself or lose the essence of who he/she is in the Oneness. This is not necessary. The Group, Kryon, Archangel Michael, etc.…these essences have not been lost and come through individually and clearly to those who channel them and are still part of the One. Why would you think that your essence must be lost?
We will give you a visual to assist your comprehension of this. This is not exactly how it is, but rather, just a tool to assist you, so please; we ask that you do not start quoting us to others, as this is the way it is.
Picture a huge, infinite, crystalline grid. This represents Source, the Oneness, that which is the Unity Consciousness. Attached to this grid are the individual essences of All, including You. You then decide to participate in the Planet Earth Project (or even some other game), you make your preparations to play the game and you incarnate as human. The essence that is You remains attached to the grid and also attached to You, the human. You live the life and then return to our side…to the grid…that you have never really left. Who or what returns is still the essence that is You and You are still part of the Oneness.
Some have said that it is your human ego that has led you to this conclusion. To a degree, this is true, but at this time, you do not really know exactly what this human ego is, although some think they do and some even think that it is bad. It is neither good nor bad and we tell for now that it is about the intent.
Rather than trying to figure out how to step into Oneness or Unity Consciousness or trying to determine who is stepping into this or not stepping into this space, we suggest that you just live a life of maximum service to yourself and others. This is the vehicle that will get you there and yes, we said to yourself and others. This is about learning to truly Place Yourself First…learning to take care of yourself…learning to fill your own cup…learning to give to yourself…so that you have an infinite amount of whatever it is that you want to give so that you can be of maximum service to others.
We have already told you how to Practically Apply this information about Your Contracts and Unity Consciousness in your lives but it bears repeating.
Regarding Your Contracts, since you are powerful enough to break your contracts unconsciously, it is also possible to amend, break and issue new contracts consciously. There is no limit to what you are capable of doing as soon as you truly know your capabilities. What do you want? NOW, create it!
Regarding Unity Consciousness, again, just live a life of maximum service to yourself and others, learning to truly Place Yourself First.
We suggest that you just keep it simple…OR NOT, if that is your choice!
We are honored and express our deepest thanks, gratitude and appreciation to you for the opportunity to present this information. We reluctantly leave you this time with these words…
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
YOUR GLORIOUS CHOICE!
We ask only that you…
Spread The Light
DO NOT FORGET TO BREATHE!
YOU ARE GOD, and So Is Everyone Else.
I AM Joseph…I AM the Sentinel…I AM the human…I AM You
