From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo March 2006
Three years ago this month, the Healing The Universe website was launched. It seems like only yesterday and yet, it also seems like an eternity. Perhaps Past, Present and Future do exist simultaneously. It sure does feel like it much of the time!
So much has happened in three years…happiness and joy; hurt and pain; learning and growing. There was a new relationship that came and went; new friendships, some of which are still in tact and some of which have fallen by the wayside; there were some old friendships that ended; all having served their respective purposes and even some of them working in tandem with each other! There were times when it seemed like a lot of work and other times when it was exciting and a whole lot of fun, with things coming freely, easily and with grace. It has been an infinite roller coaster ride and both the good news and the bad news is that I still have my pockets filled with re-ride tickets! Weeeeeeee!!! Up and down; over and under; loop-de-loo; around and through!
All I knew for sure three or four years ago was that I wanted to work in my passion, to do something in the self-empowerment/spiritual/metaphysical arenas, working with people in some way or another to be a catalyst for them to help themselves and I did not have a clue as to how that would happen or, if it did happen, how it would look. A lot has happened in a short period of time and looking back on it all, it appears to have been quite an extraordinary and elaborate plan that I unconsciously put together. There is no way that my conscious human mind could have thought of some of the important and fascinating twists and turns that I have taken in Stepping In The Direction Of My Passion, Taking One Step At A Time While Trusting and Creating My Own Path. It has been a truly amazing time that I would not have traded for anything. Along the way there have been a number of people who have crossed my path and who have been catalysts for me…people with whom I had made contracts and who fulfilled those contracts. Healing The Universe…three years ago this month!
All of this, however, is in the past (or in what appears to be the past!) In this moment, we are in the NOW. There are appropriate actions to be taken NOW to create the next moment of NOW, tomorrow. There is something BIG that is in the process of coming NOW. I don't know exactly what it is or how it will look but I do know it is BIG, not just for me but for everyone. I'm not going to waste my time trying to figure out what it is. Instead, I am just going to continue to trust, take one step at a time, create my own path, take the appropriate actions and allow it all to unfold while attempting to be both the participant and the observer, simultaneously.
Last month I was in Escondido, California at the Felicita Growth Center for six days presenting the MANIFESTING course, doing some other work, relaxing, enjoying the wonderful energy there and reconnecting with soul family members and friends Mary Jones (owner of the center) Michael Morales (whose channels are posted on the website at GUEST CHANNELS), other soul family members/friends that I met on my last trip out there and new members that I just met. This is a truly magical place for me and just like my last trip there in July of 2005, the magic began the moment the airplane touched the ground and continued until well after I returned to St. Louis.
On the beautiful morning after the course, as I was sitting outside having a cup of coffee, meditating and listening to the sound of the water flowing and cascading from one small pond to the other, observing the fish darting back and forth through the watery dimension in which they play their game and watching the turtles sunning themselves on the rocks, a piece of information came to me loud and clear:
"It is time to move on, time to end the 'Practical Spirituality: Multi-Dimensional Living In A 3rd Dimensional World' series and move on to what is next."
Did I hear this correctly? For a moment, I almost panicked. How could this possibly be? Was I supposed to completely change the focus of the work I've been doing, the Practical Application of Divinely Inspired Information in your life? I enjoy this approach to empowerment and I have seen it work for me as well as having been fortunate enough to facilitate this information with others such that they too have had wonderful results, when they choose to apply it in their lives. Of course, being Human, for a moment it was all about me! I quickly got that out of my system and then shifted and decided that whatever is next is whatever is next and I'm up for it. Bring it on!
After hearing some hearty celestial laughter from within, I was informed that this Practical Application work is not ending but expanding…the context of this work is expanding…as it has been all along, only now it would begin to expand in quantum leaps instead of a step or two at a time. With this expansion of the context, the emphasis on Practicality will increase even more. Because of this, a new name for the work is warranted and it is to be:
Practical Spirituality…The Next
And So It Is!
Ah, now that made sense to me, Practical Spirituality…The
This idea of The Bridge…Living As The Bridge…Being The Bridge…strikes a chord within me; truly resonates with me and for now, it is my truth. I'm sure that it will evolve as I evolve and for now, it IS my truth. Simply stated, it is living with one foot in the spiritual, having access to the magnificent information and tools to which Spiritual Beings (that would be us!) have access and the other foot in the 3rd Dimension while having the Human Experience, which is why we are here in the first place. We are each The Bridge. The idea is to have a balance between the two and if you can get the visual, the center of The Bridge is within you.
(For those of you who may be new to THE CLEAR VIBRATION, please refer to January 2006 Installment # 35 and February 2006 Installment # 36 in the Archives of www.HealingTheUniverse.com for a detailed explanation of The Bridge).
So, here I am, three years later. I wonder where I'll be three years from NOW? Hmmm…that last question was so Human of me! I know where I would like to be but that's pretty much irrelevant in this moment of NOW, so I will continue to Step In The Direction Of My Passion, Taking One Step At A Time While Trusting and Creating My Own Path. Although the Human Imagination is quite powerful, what lies before us is even much more grand and magnificent than we can Re-member!
Until next time, I offer you my most sincere thanks and gratitude for this forum and for the opportunity to express my flavor of the truth, offered to you for your discernment.

THE CLEAR VIBRATION™ March 2006 Installment # 37
It is with the greatest of Love, Joy, Appreciation and Gratitude that we present this information to you, the angelic beings who have so courageously chosen to play this game. WE ARE ONE and we welcome you to this moment of NOW.
The game is expanding. The scope and the context of this work has been and continues to be expanding, which allows for expanded content. We have spoken the last two times of The Bridge; of you each Being The Bridge; living with one foot in the spiritual and the other in the 3rd Dimension, having a Human Experience and having the ability to draw on all the tools from HOME…all of the energies of HOME…to assist you in having that Human Experience. Through the wonderful work that each of you have done…all of you…even those who appear to be doing no work at all…even those who to some, may appear to be doing it wrong…you, as a group of Humans, have decided to up the ante, to take it up a few notches. We rejoice and applaud you for this because we are usually ready for you to take it up a few notches. This is why we gently nudge you at times, at other times, you feel a firm push and still other times, a swift cosmic kick, but you are always at choice. Recently, however, you caught us off guard. You are moving much faster than we expected you to move, so we have had to play a quick game of catch up!
A year ago, we introduced: Practical Spirituality: Multi-Dimensional Living In A 3rd Dimensional World and we are now honored to present to you a new, seamless continuation called:
Practical Spirituality…The Next
It is one thing to intellectually know that it is possible to have the Human Experience while also having access to the energies and tools of HOME. It is quite another to actually know it in your heart and live it; Balanced in both worlds; actually rolling up your sleeves, getting your hands dirty and putting it into practice in your daily lives…each of you, Spiritual Beings Having A Human Experience.
If you are a living, kicking, breathing Human, which we know most of you are, then you have heard the word Balance. "Live your life in balance," many say; a balance between work and play; family and other interests…not too much of this and not too much of that…do not allow the pendulum to swing too far to the left and now, not too far to the right. Allow it to rest right in the middle. That's it…right in the middle. Now, how often does that happen? Right in the middle? In your perception it seems as though it does not happen very often. It always seems to be a bit to the left or a bit to the right in your harsh judgment of yourselves, but you achieve this balance more than you realize. To you, it must look a certain way and that is quite alright because even when it only appears to be close to the center, it is very powerful, but every once in a while…Bingo…you release your judgment of yourselves and there it is…Perfect Balance…and it feels so good, doesn't it? It feels so powerful that you feel as though you can do anything and the fact is, that you can. You Feel Truly Inspired!
Many of you work so hard…no, you strive…to achieve this Balance that it is this same hard work and striving that brings you the complete opposite. It brings you stress, hurt and pain. It instills fear within you, which causes more stress, hurt and pain. Am I doing it right? Why is this so hard? Where is this Balance that everyone speaks of? Why can't I have it? Why does it elude me? I must not be good enough. I am not worth it. I don't deserve it.
Well, you can have it if you choose it. If you want balance, the first thing to do is to stop working so hard for it and that goes for anything. It doesn't have to look a certain way. This Balance is personally unique to each Human. What is Balance for one is not Balance for another. Your Balance does not have to look like someone else's balance, it just has to look like your Balance. If one is truly working in his passion, then it is not work, it is play and we suggest that you be totally honest with yourself. Are you truly playing in your passion or, are you just hiding out from your life…your true Human Experience? It does not matter what others think. What others think about you is none of your business. The only opinion about you that counts is yours.
Authors and songwriters, for example, may be highly motivated, or even better yet, inspired, and may write for ten, twelve or even fourteen hours a day for weeks, totally passionate about the process, loving and enjoying every minute of it. A passionately inspired auto mechanic who becomes one with each engine that she plays with may find herself in the same ZONE as the author and the songwriter, totally creative, joyous, inspired and at peace, experiencing oneness with everything and everybody. Are they doing it wrong because they are spending so much time in doing what may be judged by some to be work? Well, that depends on what each person honestly feels about their own situation and of course, there is no wrong…or right.
If you truly want Balance, the second thing to do, if it is your choice, is to Live and Be The Bridge. When you are Living and Being The Bridge…when you are using the energies and tools from this multi-dimensional Universe…from HOME…to assist you in having your Human Experience…your life…your Human Experience…just flows. You can feel the energy flow right through you as though you have blown the channel wide open. You trust yourself. You Feel Inspired…Connected to Your Spirit Self! You easily, freely and gracefully step into Balance in all areas of your life. You have the Human Experience that you wanted to have in choosing to play this game, accessing as many of the abilities of the Spiritual Being that you truly are, as you Allow yourself to access.
Yes, the pendulum does swing to the left and to the right. There will always be twists, turns, bumps and potholes in the road, the same ones that you so cleverly placed there because you thought they would be so much fun but by Living and Being The Bridge, staying Connected to Your Spirit Self and remembering that that place where The Bridge meets, right in the center is the place where you will find all of your answers, Within You. Dearest Humans, reach into your pockets and you will find the infinite supply of re-ride tickets that you placed there for the roller coaster that you so dearly love. Enjoy the ride!
Alignment With Source…Your Spirit Self
Align yourself and your desires with Source Energy, Your Spirit Self and detach from the outcomes and time frames. Expect miracles. When you are working and playing in your passion, you are in the moment of NOW, enjoying the journey and trusting as you place one foot in front of the other, step by step, creating your own path. Sure, go ahead and visualize your project being completed and detach from the outcome and when it will be achieved. Be willing to accept something much greater than what you had intended and can even imagine. You see, when you are playing passionately and inspirationally in the moment, enjoying each second of your so-called time that ticks away, having fun, laughing and sharing, we are busy at play, orchestrating your desires. When you are in this space, your vibrational offering soars, your resistance to receiving your heart's desires becomes little or nothing and you Allow us to bring you what you want, or something better. The less resistance you have to receiving your desires, the more Allowing you exhibit. We love to see you dissolve the roadblocks. We love to see you Allow. It makes everything so much easier…for all of us!
Or…Something…Better! These are truly magical words. When you speak these words in declaring your clear intention, the vibration that you create tells us that you have removed all limitations and you are truly open to the Divine Plan that you designed before this incarnation, when you were in-spirit, in-spired.
Add to this powerful vibration the even more powerful words: For The Highest Good Of All and we cannot resist. We joyously must bring you all that you need and want, and more. You see, everything that you will ever need and want, no matter how grand it may be, is yours for the taking. All you must do is stay out of your own way and Stay In The NOW…The Present…as much as you can while still having the Human Experience.
For…The…Highest…Good…Of…All! You are expressing your desire…your intent…to share your heart's desires with Every ONE. You are declaring your intent to have all that you will ever need and want so you can give it away…and then manifest it all again, so you can give it away, over and over again while playing passionately, inspired, doing what you want to do, the way you want to do it, For The Highest Good Of All!
Being In The NOW
If you have done any reading at all, attended personal and spiritual growth and development classes and lectures or just have had common sense conversations with friends and co-workers, the topic of staying present, living in the moment and Being In The NOW has probably been addressed in some way or another. Many speak of this and most struggle with it. It seems to be a very powerful concept and a stimulating topic for intellectual conversation and then after it is over, most people return to their daily lives, living in the past with many regrets or living in the future complete with insecurities and worries about what happens if this happens or what happens if that happens; what about my job, my kids and my relationship; is he going to cheat on me, am I ever going to have a relationship; etc.
Okay, we can feel and see your impatience by all the hands raised high in the air, all of you with the same two-part question:
NOW…LET'S GET PRACTICAL and EFFICIENT
Since this is your 21st Century and most of our communications with Joe always do center around The Practical Application Of Divinely Inspired Information In Your Life and since linear time is part of your game, Practicality and Efficiency are extremely important to many.
In this 21st Century, people have to work, go to school and go to the grocery store. The kids have soccer, baseball, basketball, piano, guitar and dance. Moms and dads have become a shuttle service. Who has the time to sit on top of the mountain chanting and meditating all day? Some even have trouble finding the mountain let alone climb it! That was a joke, by the way! Go to the grocery store…pick up the kids from school…take the kids to dance, piano and baseball, etc….find the mountain, chant, meditate…pick up the kids, drive home, cook dinner…Phew! This is even causing us to be tired and exhausted and we do not have the ability to experience tiredness and exhaustion on this side!
You can either choose to find the mountain, climb it, meditate and chant everyday OR you can speak or think this piece throughout the day, as often as you think of it, as well as placing it in meditation when you create the opportunity to do so. Of course, you may climb the mountain if you can find it and speak this while you are up there, if you so choose. Mountain climbing is great exercise and quite rewarding!
You may change words and move phrases to suit you such that this resonates and works for you. When you do this, speak it or think it in sets of three's. It becomes much more powerful in this way.
This has proven to work for a number of people already, so we suggest that you give it a try. Just know that it only works if you use it…if you Practically Apply it in your life.
In The Zone…Inspired…NOW
When you were setting up your game plan for this life time, you made many choices about who you would play with, where you would be playing, what games you would play and with what people, within the context of this grand game that you have so magnificently designed. Among those choices were the gifts and talents that you would bring forward, especially those which would only begin to surface and step to the forefront as you would begin to work and play in your passion. When you step into this Zone, living fully Inspired, Connected To Your Spirit-Self, in the NOW, these gifts and talents, which you have so cleverly hidden away to use when the time is right, show up in your face. You will be shocked, surprised and amazed at what they are and wonder where they originated. For instance, a person who is shy, introverted and insecure may almost suddenly become quite the schmooze guy, public speaker or facilitator. Another who has spent his life disorganized, confused and unsuccessful may find himself organized almost to a fault, clear and very successful. An average guitarist may suddenly discover her ability to write songs and then write a string of hit songs for other people and perhaps even for herself. Gifts and talents that have lain comfortably and quietly asleep for years. ..even for decades…come to light. They have always been available, at your fingertips, waiting, just waiting for the time to be right, for that exact moment that it is needed.
So many times Humans ask, " What is my passion and purpose? How do I discover my passion and purpose? Will I ever find it? Is this all there is?" They just sit back doing nothing while waiting for it to show up, taking no appropriate action. We have always said that if you do not know the specifics of you purpose and passion, in other words, if you do not know exactly how it looks, then at least step in the direction of it and allow things to begin to unfold.
We doubt that you are totally clueless as to your purpose and passion and you may have several, but just in case You Are Pretending Not To Know what it is, we suggest that you start here:
In conclusion, for this time, we wish to remind you just two more things to assist you on your journey:
In Working PASSIONATELY, your work is no longer work. It becomes play. You enjoy it. It is fun, fulfilling, exciting and exhilarating and you achieve much more while doing less by taking only the Appropriate Actions, instead of spinning your wheels just to make yourself look good to others and feel worthwhile for yourself.
We leave you with this: INSPIRATION…or…PERSPIRATION? Your Choice!
We express to you our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the opportunity to present this information to you for your discernment.
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
WE ARE ONE
