From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo February 2007
Another month has passed and we are already almost two months into this new year. This illusion called TIME that we have so ingeniously created to allow us to play this game certainly does fly whether we are having fun or not, so we might as well have some fun! I was just telling a new client the other day that even though we were going to roll up our sleeves, get our hands dirty and get some work done and even though at the Human, 3-D level, what we would be dealing with was serious business, if we viewed it all from the big picture, we would see that it was really nothing…just a grand illusion…we've made it all up. We Humans do tend to take ourselves much too seriously, don't we? Then again, we are here to have a Human experience and that includes everything that we perceive to be positive and everything that we perceive to be negative; everything that we perceive to be good and everything that we perceive to be bad.
One morning a few weeks ago I was reading the newspaper, as I do every morning. Apparently, I am among the minority of people in the metaphysical/spiritual circles in which I operate and travel, who read, watch and listen to the news. I choose to be informed, trusting myself to determine what resonates or does not resonate with me, rather than to be uninformed while sticking my head in the sand. I feel confident enough in who I am that I will not allow the perceived negative energy affiliated with "the news" to bother me.
Anyway, I came across the Comic Section. There are several that I read regularly…Mallard Fillmore, Non Sequitur, Mother Goose and Grimm and Pearls Before Swine…all cleverly done; and of course, there is Ziggy. That morning found Ziggy, just standing there and saying out loud to no one in particular, "THEY SAY THAT FEELINGS OF STAGNATION OFTEN PRECEDE A DAWN OF TREMENDOUS GROWTH!" He responds to himself out loud again saying, "IF THAT'S THE CASE, I SHOULD BE A 7-FOOT-TALL GENIUS!"
Now, I know that many of you have felt the same way, not only during periods of stagnation (and we've all felt periods of this during the past few years) but also during periods of emotional upheaval…those times of experiencing perceived negative feelings and emotions coming up and in their own way requesting attention, processing and healing.
7-Feet Tall?!? I'm sure that some of you, and I will include myself among you, feel as though you should be at least 70 Feet Tall, based on what you have and may currently be going through! I just found it interesting that the "civilian" version of this showed up in the comics and that no matter which rung of the ladder a person may be occupying or may be perceived to be occupying, the great shifts are being felt.
Clicks, Chirps and Flashes
It has started again. Actually, it has never stopped. It just slowed down a bit for me toward the end of 2006, along with diminished inspiration and physical energy, but it has now accelerated once again. I'm talking about the flashes of light out of the corners and bottoms of my eyes and the clicking, chirping sounds, kind of like a cricket or a group of crickets, or a herd or a gaggle or whatever a collection of crickets would be called! I have experienced this on and off for years but never this intense and never this frequently. As the illusion of the veil thins or from time to time, is even lifted for just milliseconds at a time, this activity increases, this bleed-through from other dimensions/multi-verses. Am I attempting to communicate with them; are they attempting to communicate with me; are WE attempting to communicate with each other? Just who are THEY, anyway? If THEY are having a similar experience, and my truth says that THEY are, then who do THEY think I am?
My truth tells me that it is Me from other dimensions who is attempting to contact Me in this dimension, consciously or unconsciously; and it is Me in this dimension attempting to contact Me in other dimensions, consciously or unconsciously. It is also all of us attempting to contact all of us, consciously or unconsciously, and/or, the dimensions are just bleeding through to each other by accident. Of course, there are no accidents, so that's not the case. So what do you suppose is the purpose, of all of this? Well, normal Human thought (whatever that might be) would say that it is certainly not just for the fun of it, although it can be a lot of fun and fun can be an extraordinary purpose for doing many things! There actually is purpose in this attempted communication and you know how it is with us Humans. There must be some serious purpose, or a thing just couldn't possibly be worthwhile, but we'll get to that in a moment.
I have a very close friend of mine who has been hearing these noises for at least the past six or so years. She was hearing them before hearing them became popular and commonplace, although what she heard was a lot more than mere clicking and chirping. This would usually occur at night while she was in bed on the second floor of her house. She would hear muffled voices outside her window…remember, second floor!…that sounded like a thousand radio stations that were not quite on the station…you know, that almost audible but you can't quite make out what is being said kind of distorted sound. She would jump up to look out the window, see nothing and of course, the sound would stop. She would bound down the steps and look all around outside and see nothing. Once back in bed, it would start up again.
So, what IS the purpose of this multi-dimensional bleed-through, if any?
For the past several years, much of the information that has been coming through to me has been about Living and Being The Bridge, not only living as a Spiritual Being having a Human experience but also as a Human Being having a Spiritual experience, with one foot in the spiritual and the other foot in the Human, 3-D experience, with the ability to take all of the tools available in the spiritual and grounding them in the 3-D to assist you in having the Human experience, to assist you to be the powerful, intentional creator/manifestor/transformer that you came here to be, to assist you to experience yourself as who you truly are.
These multi-dimensional bleed through episodes tell us that it IS possible to communicate with all of the Me's and all of the You's who are existing simultaneously in other dimensions, as well as that which many call the other side, and that it is not only possible to communicate but to reach through the veil, as it were, and bring into existence in this dimension, whatever we so choose.
The clicks and flashes along with the distorted radio stations and other such wispy, almost formless looking forms, excite me to no end as I work and play with the ability to reach through, over, around and under the veil to create/manifest/transform my life the way I want it to be, in this dimension.
I Am Having The Times Of My LIVES, playing with this!!! Come join me!
Are You "Right" Or Just Scared To Death?
Those of you who know me or who come here often know that I may, at times, view things just a bit differently than some of my peers, often seeing things from a different vantage point, a different perspective or with a different twist. I do not do this on purpose, just for the sake of being controversial. It just happens to be the way I view things and many times, how I see things may not be the way the majority sees it. I speak my truth knowing that my flavor will evolve as I evolve and then I will speak my new truth; and then, speak my new truth; and then, speak my new truth.
In the December 2006 From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo, the topics of Judgment, Discernment and Opinion were addressed. It was stated that these three are so closely related that they are often used in the definitions of each other and that if you are Human, and indeed, many of you are (LOL!), you will judge. You will judge until you take your final breath in this incarnation. The key is all in how you handle it; what you do with it. Will you just recognize the fact that you judged, examine it, learn from it and move on; or will you rant and rave, or persecute and slander, in an attempt to look good and be right?
I'm sure that there have been times in your life when you thought you were right about some one, some thing or about some thing about some one, perhaps even so right (or would righteous be a better word?) that in an attempt to prove to the world and most importantly, to yourself that you were right, you had to make someone else be wrong! You not only had to make someone else be wrong, you had to tell others just how wrong that person was, in order to make yourself look good or look better. We Have All Done This Before and many times without even realizing it, as we often sleepwalk through life, operating on automatic. If there is anyone out there who has not done this before, please contact me at Joe@HealingTheUniverse.com. I would like to meet such a person and perhaps nominate that person for canonization as the only perfect Human who has ever walked among men!
What Does It Mean To Be Right?
Right = 1) Being in accordance with what is just, good, or proper; 2) Conforming to facts or truth; 3) synonym: correct
The definitions and the synonym sound good, don't they? Let's take a look.
All of you know, intellectually, that when you view this from the big picture, there really is no Right and no Wrong, however, we are here, having a Human experience. As Human, we are reasoning (or not reasoning, as the case may be) with a finite brain (or finite mind, as some would say, but that is a debate for another time). The result of being an infinite being playing a game that uses a finite brain is that we create the illusion of limitation, of which the illusions of Right and Wrong are a major part.
You may be as metaphysical and as spiritual as you say you are and want to be and you can attempt to view things from the largest picture that you can possibly see as Human, and still, there are many times…even more times than you care to admit…when you see things as Right or Wrong. Even the most righteous of you (LOL!) have pointed your finger at someone and said words that meant, "I am Right and You are Wrong about this and that's all there is to it!" An event occurs and even though the event itself is neutral…it is just the event…it always comes back to the big three: Judgment, Discernment and Opinion, which of these three is it, how do we handle it and what do we do with it. If you have not read the December 2006 From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo, now might be a good time.
Some of you may be leaning toward agreeing with what I'm saying here but may still be wondering if there are times when there are just things that we know that we know and since we know that we know them, then in fact, it is absolute and we can be right about it. Yes, of course, there are some things that we have accepted as absolute, for instance 1 + 1 = 2. That is an absolute, as far as we know, in this Human paradigm in which we live, in this particular game, but outside of this Human paradigm, is that really true and the greater question might be, "Does it really matter?" Inside this particular paradigm you can be reasonably sure that 1 + 1 = 2, at least for now.
This morning a colleague said to me in response to a statement that I had made, "Joe, you're absolutely right about that!" I joked back, "Thanks! That's my favorite thing to be!"
I am Human; I like to be right. You are Human; you like to be right! If you have donned the costume of Human flesh, no matter who you are in this lifetime, no matter who you were in past lifetimes, You Like To Be Right.
Now, for one person to be right, it usually means in many instances that someone or some thing has to be wrong. The underlying reason, consciously or unconsciously, that it is so important for us to be right is to make ourselves look or feel More Than, Better Than or Bigger Than someone or some thing. We often do this by attempting to make someone else look or feel Less Than, Smaller Than or Not As Good As.
More Than, Better Than or Bigger Than…WHAT?
Think about this for a moment and be honest with yourself. When was the last time that you felt the need to be Right? What was happening in your life at the time? Did you have a need to justify your worth, who you thought you were or what you were doing? Did you have a need to justify these things to others; did you have a need to justify these things to yourself?
We do this out of Fear. We Are Scared To Death…Scared To Death That We Will Be Found Out…THAT SOMEONE WILL DISCOVER THAT OUR "COVER STORY" the Lie That We Show and Tell To Others AND ESPECIALLY TO OURSELVES, About Who We Are, IS JUST PURE, UNADULTERATED BS!
We have all done this. If there is anyone reading this who honestly feels that he has never had this experience, drop me a line at Joe@HealingTheUniverse.com. I would love to discuss this with you.
If you will indulge me for a moment, I will tell you of an event when someone pointed an accusatory finger at me. The person first had to converse with at least one other person to get "validation" that he/she was in agreement and thusly, assuring each other that they were right. The accusations were edgy, sharp and hurtful. Rather than just ignore them, as I considered the source, I chose to honestly examine each one and then determine whether or not any of it applied. Anything that I honestly felt applied, I continued to work with. As far as the rest that did not apply, I just discarded them.
After I had begun the process on myself, it occurred to me to take a look at the issues of my accuser. There was a deep issue of Self-trust and a difficulty in setting proper boundaries, the result of a lifetime (at least) of abuse, rejection and I'm Not Good Enough messages delivered in many forms. Connected to the Self-trust issue was the issue of Truth…knowing and learning to speak one's own Truth. Part of this Truth issue is that the person lies to him/herself and then believes his own lies! Add to this an issue of Integrity With Self that shows up as the double standard which is basically stated as Do As I Say, Not As I Do, and you have a hurt, angry, insecure person who is Scared To Death…a prime candidate for Having To Be Right. What is interesting is that the accuser's accomplice has the same issues…both Having A Need To Be Right.
In looking at me, all of these issues were triggered within my accuser. My accuser had to go within to attempt to deal with these issues and apparently didn't like what was there, although this was probably happening at the unconscious level. A need to be Right about something…anything…was present. Everything that my accuser accused me of doing and/or being was exactly what my accuser was and had been doing and/or being. At some level, that person knew it and rather than honestly do the work on it, needed to apply the faux healing salve of Being Right. In order to do that, the person had to make me Wrong. Just know that WE HAVE ALL DONE THIS!
This experience is just one of a few similar experiences that I have had and that we all have had. Know too, that we have all been on both the giving and the receiving end of this. Also notice that when you point a finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at you. If one would happen to be paying attention to these fingers pointing back, that alone would be cause for some healthy, honest investigation and evaluation of one's motives and one's self.
In closing, I ask you the same question now as I did at the beginning of this segment: Are You "Right" Or Just Scared To Death?
I express to you my most sincere thanks and gratitude for indulging me and allowing me the opportunity to present this to you.

THE CLEAR VIBRATION™ February 2007 Installment # 48
Greetings…Dearest Warriors of the Light…Welcome Home!
It is with the greatest of love, joy and appreciation that we come to you in this sacred moment of NOW to once again bring you Practical Information for Practical People who are Practicing Practical Spirituality. We are a familiar group of energies…very familiar to you. Who we are in this moment is not important. We will reveal ourselves at the end of this communication. Please…do not skip ahead to find out who we are. TRUST YOURSELF! Play the game with us and have some fun with it. If this request manifests itself as fear to you, then we request that you take a moment to go within and examine this, be honest with yourself and perhaps discover why this has manifested as fear.
If you must, then skip ahead to see who we are. If this is what you choose to do, then know that all choices are honored and we would suggest that you go within to discover what it is and perhaps why it is that you do not trust yourself.
Okay…are you ready? Let us get started with:
Practical Spirituality…The Next
Whether we label it as such or not, the purpose of these particular communications always has been to bring forth information regarding Practical Spirituality and the Practical Application of Divinely Inspired information. This is the 12th and final edition of this series and what you will always find here is Practical Spirituality…things that you can use and that will assist you as you have your Human experience.
Mentors, Gurus and Teachers…
There is only one Guru that you are meant to follow in playing this game called the Planet Earth Project. That Guru is YOU. YOU are your own Guru. You may have many leaders, gurus, mentors, teachers, facilitators or instructors in a lifetime. Call them what you will, but still, YOU are your own Guru.
You have encountered leaders and teachers in all areas of your life and what we say applies to all of these areas, but we would like to specifically address the metaphysical/spiritual area of your life and the leaders, teachers, etc., that you have and will encounter there.
Some of them are real, extraordinary and do what they do very well. Others are not so real, not so extraordinary…in fact, they are charlatans…and they too, do what they do very well! You may find among the ranks of all of these, some who are authentic and some who are master manipulators. You will find this mixed bag of authentic/unauthentic not only in the metaphysical/spiritual communities but also in the religious communities and anywhere else that you choose to look.
There are teachers, leaders and mentors who will specifically tell you to follow them, insisting that their way is the only way and that every other way is wrong.
Then there are the teachers, leaders and mentors who will specifically tell you that they are not the Guru, that YOU are your own Guru and that YOU are the only one you ever need to follow.
Of course, there are the teachers, leaders and mentors who will specifically tell you that they are not the Guru, that YOU are your own Guru and that YOU are the only one you ever need to follow, but who are master manipulators attempting to earn your trust by speaking one thing while actually meaning quite another. They speak about self-empowerment and owning your power while telling you that YOU are your own Guru while manipulating you into becoming dependent upon them and following them for power, money or both.
There is much to learn from all of these…those who are authentic and those who are not…those who are ethical and those who are not…even if it is what not to do, but we are discussing this topic at this time for one reason only.
There are many teachers, leaders, facilitators and mentors who are authentic, ethical and who operate above board and in integrity and as we have said, there are some who are not. They may bring forth wonderful, inspiring, life-changing information and news. They may appear to be an expert or authority in a particular area and they may very well be. No matter how much they have learned/know/remembered (and you know that learning is nothing more than remembering what you already know), they have not remembered all of it. It is possible that you have actually remembered more than they have or if not more, perhaps you have remembered different, even cutting-edge knowledge that they have not..
The whole point of this is simple:
It is possible that you have surpassed your teachers, leaders, facilitators and mentors. It is possible that you have surpassed them and do not trust yourself enough to realize it and if you do realize it, you do not trust yourself enough to do anything about…to just go out and do your thing, independent of your chosen guru. We are not saying that you must go against them or even be in competition with them. We are only suggesting that you work and play in your own flavor of the truth, in whatever way works for you. Be your own person. You do not have to disagree with your mentor as a show of attitude or false power, but do have the courage to disagree and express your flavor of the truth whether it is in alignment with your guru(s) or not.
So, are your teachers, leaders, facilitators, mentors and gurus holding you back? The answer is, Yes and No! Yes, they are holding you back Because You Are Allowing It! No, They ARE NOT holding you back because it is YOU who is choosing to be HELD BACK. They can only hold you at bay, consciously or unconsciously, if you let them. Even if they want to, the choice is yours.
Either way, they are just the catalyst(s). YOU are at choice. How courageous are YOU?
Until next time, WE ARE ONE and 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.
TAKE ALL OF IT. TAKE SOME OF IT. TAKE NONE OF IT.
We ask only that you…
Spread The Light
DO NOT FORGET TO BREATHE!
YOU ARE GOD, and So Is Everyone Else.
We reluctantly leave you at this time but before we go, please allow us to reveal ourselves:
All along, it has been Me talking to YOU; You talking to Me; You talking to You; and Me Talking to Myself…no mystery, no mystique.
From the beginning it has been Us talking to Ourselves.
I AM Joseph…I AM the Sentinel…I AM the Human
I AM You
WE ARE ONE
