Thoughts to get you Thinking #77

"Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials."-- Lin Yutang

Do you feel a desire to simplify your life? If you say 'yes' then set an intention to reduce the demands, stimuli, interruptions and busyness in your life. We each have the power to do this, we simply have to begin to say 'no' to those activities that don't directly serve what we want for our lives.

Everyone of this planet deserves to have some free time to think, relax and have fun. If you long for this, begin now to clear your plate and allow a new level of experience to happen in your life. Take charge. Eliminate time wasters. Make some decisions about what matters to you.

"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak."-- Hans Hofmann

Argument

Daily Om: When we find ourselves in an argument, we may feel like we are losing control of emotions that have taken on lives of their own. When we can become aware that this is happening, taking a deep breath can help us step back from the situation. Once we can separate ourselves from the heat of the moment, we may find that the emotional trigger that began the argument has little to do with the present situation, but may have brought up feelings related to something else entirely. Looking honestly at what caused our reaction allows us to consciously respond more appropriately to the situation and make the best choices. We can make an agreement with our partners and those closest to us that asking questions can help all of us discover the source of the argument. The shared awareness can result in finding simple solutions to something physical, like low blood sugar or even a hormonal surge. Maybe we are taking ourselves too seriously, and we can just laugh and watch the tension dissolve...read more>>>...

Ants and Bees, a Metaphor

Daily OM: When we see ants and bees out in the world, we often see just one, but this belies the reality of their situation. More than any other species, ants and bees function as parts of a whole. They cannot and do not survive as individuals; they survive as members of a group, and the group's survival is the implicit goal of each individual's life. There is no concept of life outside the group, so even to use the word individual is somewhat misleading. Often, humans, on the other hand, strongly value individuality and often negatively associate ants and bees with a lack of independence. And yet, if we look closer at these amazing creatures, we can learn valuable lessons about how much we can achieve when we band together with others to work for a higher purpose.

Most ants and bees have highly specified roles within their communities, some of which are biologically dictated, and they work within the confines of their roles without complaint, never wishing to be something other than what they are. In this way, they symbolize self-knowledge and humility. They also display selfless service as they work for the common good...read more>>>...

Walking The Path Of Most Resistance

Life no longer feels the same. It may appear the same on the surface, and those of this current generation may look at me like a lost cause ... but under the surface there is certainly something amiss.

On a psychic level, beneath the apparent, the human race no longer thinks like it did. Those sub-conscious signals are totally different. They are being affected by the spider's web of invisible perception rays that are out there. The mobile phone and the wireless signals are affecting the way we perceive this world. It is a deliberate intention, clearly.

Made to disconnect us still further from source, and force us to most certainly become separate aspects trapped in this prison of expectation and environmental impressions. We really cannot be ourselves, or if we are we must keep it to ourselves. There is so much pressure put on us to be like everyone else. If you are different then the collective comes down on you like a ton of bricks. The lone sheep must be like all the other sheep in the fold, even if that lone sheep is the only one that has found the open gate, or is the only one chewing on the decent grass. If the majority stand in shit then that is the norm, sadly.

This is seen more and more now as the individual is condemned for free thinking. To be like or the rest is the safety net it would seem. On a collective level fear is manifesting the world of the condemned and the lost. This must be overcome for mankind to evolve. It must begin within. It must begin on those levels of the psyche that dictate the way we perceive, and therefore manifest the world we exist in. It is down to those lone sheep to be brave and remain resolute; they must have the ability to withstand the sticks and stones of the herd. The herd mentality is safety in numbers. It is accepting a norm, even if it is clearly wrong, because that is the safest thing to do. It doesn't make it right.

The path of most resistance is going against that grain and having the courage to wander out of the fold and into the fields that lead up the mountainside. That is where the work has to be done. There is a way of collectively gaining an immunity to the toxins in the air, in the water, in the food. The toxins that gather in our thoughts. There is a way of gaining back the inner world we once had. We must individually think for ourselves and perceive the world we wish to have. To ignore the norms and the demands that are constantly subliminally broadcast into our DNA. We cannot get away from those broadcasts, but we can be made aware of those dangerous distractions. It is the enchantments of a threatened mind, or minds that are forever fearful of us discovering their existence. Yes, we are being enchanted and so many people are falling for that dangerous spell. It is time to become the individual spirit once more and learn to discern the symptoms of this enchantment. That is the difficult part ...

Songs that inspired me #20

Prior to the 'Prisoners In Paradise' album I'd only ever heard 'The Final Countdown', 'Carrie', 'Rock The Night' etc .. and didn't realise just how good Europe were. I bought the Prisoners In Paradise album via the music club I was a member of . What impressed me most was the powerful opening to this song ....'Girl From Lebanon'.

This was the song that really inspired me to hear all I could by Europe. I managed to see them live at Milton Keynes Bowl in 1987. They were one of the support acts for Bon Jovi, and proved to be the best act of the day, that day!

Thoughts to get you Thinking #76

"The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend."-- Henri Bergson

Our entire universe is energy -- vibrating waves of pure potential. The electromagnetic vibrations of our consciousness interact with the energetic potential that exists everywhere as the life force to 'collapse'  the waves and create matter. So the patterns of our minds create the form of our world.

By simply observing a form, we influence it. We in turn are influenced by others. This challenges us to be more aware of the quality of our being and the vibrations we transmit.

"There is no reality in the absence of observation."-- The Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

More Martian Anomalies and Strange Artifacts

We hope the strangeness of these images we are adding to A Light In The Darkness are making some of you question the 'wall of silence and downright lies' that has been created around the True Mars story. Here are some more anomalies for you to muse over. Remember these have all been legally obtained from Google Mars, and have been intuitively adjusted to provide a better picture of what is really on the Martian surface. If there really was nothing to hide, and Mars was as NASA claimed then why have the areas of Mars where these images sourced from become out of bounds for joe public?






You Have All the Answers Within You

Daily OM: Many of us seek the answers to life's questions by looking outside of ourselves and trying to glean advice from the people around us. But as each of us is unique, with our own personal histories, our own sense of right and wrong, and our own way of experiencing the world that defines our realities, looking to others for our answers is only partially helpful. The answers to our personal questions can be most often found by looking within. When you realize that you always have access to the part of you that always knows what you need and is meant to act as your inner compass, you can stop searching outside of yourself. If you can learn to hear, trust, and embrace the wisdom that lives within you, you will be able to confidently navigate your life...read more>>>...


Strange implants and the extraterrestrial hypothesis

S.O.T.T: Everything from the release of government documents, to high level testimonies from high ranking military and political figures has ignited a massive surge of interest in the UFO phenomenon from people all over the world. Unidentified Flying Objects (performing maneuvers that defy our understanding of physics) are now a confirmed reality. Official government documents prove that defence and government agencies have been examining this topic for a while. For example, you can view the UK's latest release of files from June 2013 here. To find out what happens when the military tracks a UFO on radar, you can click here. You can find out more information about that from CE by clicking here. Ask yourself, why is there such a high level of interest from government and military agencies?

The question people are asking has changed from "do UFOs exist?" to "are UFOs extraterrestrial spacecraft?" Attributing today's unknown aerial phenomenon to extraterrestrial craft might be a big mental leap to some, but the size of that mental leap continues to decrease. There are a lot of factors that are attributing to that decrease, and one of them comes in the form of body marks and extracted implants from people who've claimed to have extraterrestrial contact. I'm not saying all UFOs are extraterrestrial craft, I believe many of them are also made by humans from classified projects that come from the black budget world. I also believe that many of these implants could have been done by military agencies; but again, I'd like to reiterate that the extraterrestrial hypothesis is not one to take likely, you can read more about the extraterrestrial hypothesis HERE, or later on in this article...read more>>>...

Things that Annoy Us

Daily OM: There are many stories of spiritual masters embracing the presence of an annoying student in their community. There is even one story that documents a teacher paying an irritating person to live among his students. From an everyday perspective, this is difficult to comprehend. We generally work hard to avoid people and things that we find annoying so they don't bother us.

From a deeper spiritual perspective, however, irritation can be an important teacher and indicator that we are making progress on our path. Being able to remain centered and awake even when we feel uncomfortable is much more impressive than doing so in an environment where everything is to our liking. No matter how good we are at controlling our circumstances, there will always be factors and people that we cannot control. How we respond to these experiences to a great degree determines the quality of our lives...read more>>>...

Thoughts to get you Thinking #75

Time is life. It is irreversible and irreplaceable. To waste your time is to waste your life, but to master your time is to master your life and make the most of it.-- Alan Lakein

Refuse to feel USED by life! Make full use of it instead.

To do this, we initially need to take control of the time of our lives. Time management is life management, from the inside out. It's an INSIDE job. You already have everything you need. You have the power to create a life of meaning, fulfillment and joy.

Your challenge is to find what works for you! Review the literature but make your own decisions. To do this, you'll need to:

Get to know yourself -- your desires and passions, rhythms, styles, challenges, needs and habits.

Be aware that you always have choice. Claim your independence and power to choose what is right for your life, moment by moment.

Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.-- M. Scott Peck

The Gift is in the Giving

The gift is in the giving, not in the having of the gift. It is not all about you and what you are. Its not about the banners and the titles or the attention you may receive. It is not about being recognised for man made titles that have been given to you. It is not about anything that feeds the false ego. If that is what you think having a psychic ability is all about then you have been misguided.

It is all about using that gift to help others selflessly. It is in truth often a bitter curse as it leads you down difficult roads and into dire straits. There is a tireless dedication, I term 'the tempering of the blade' that takes decades to wander through. It is this phase of the initiation that the selfish ego cannot tolerate. It wants everything as easy as possible, and as quickly as possible. Those who have the true gift are patient, and tireless and accepting of all that is thrown in their path. Very few of those driven by the ego can make it to the grade of the minerval student. Those who rush into this field we term those of the 'Icarus grade' ...

'I know the whole point - the only point - is to find the things that matter'


Animals in Nature

Fox copyright Matthew James 2015
Daily OM: Animals share our planet with us, but experience it differently--each has its own abilities and gifts that allow them to interact successfully with the natural world. Since we are merely one manifestation of the universe's energy in action, when we feel the need for direction we can turn to animals in nature for guidance. Animals can show us different ways to approach and deal with our challenges.

As we hold a question in mind, we can begin to pay attention to the animal activity around us. Staring out a window we may notice a bird soaring high in the sky, showing us how to look at our situation from a greater distance. If we don't get an immediate answer, we can remember that the universe has its own perfect timing that doesn't heed the ticking of the clock...read more>>>...

Could this REALLY be the face of an alien? Meet the woman, 22, who claims she has extraterrestrial DNA

Daily Mail: Throughout her childhood, Lea Kapiteli, 22, from Melbourne, said she struggled with unusual physical encounters, strange experiences and presences.Dismissing them as part of a childhood phase, it wasn't until she hit her teenage years that she found out what they really meant.

Ms Kapiteli told Daily Mail Australia that at the age of 13 she was visited by someone in the night, who explained her past, told her why she felt different to other girls her age, and spoke about the true nature of her heritage.

The presence, who she said was called Mezreth, told Ms Kapiteli that she wasn't like other teenagers. Instead, she was an alien hybrid. A Starseed is someone with mixed origin,' explained Ms Kapiteli.'It's someone who is human, and who was born on earth, but who doesn't have wholly human origins. For years, I had felt everyone else just clicked while I was abnormal. When I found out I was a Starseed, I knew I was here for a reason: to witness life on earth,' she said...read more>>>...

Songs that inspired me #19

I first heard this particular song when I bought the album 'Heartbreak Station' in audio tape format from the Music Club I was a member of. It was one of the new album of the month specials, and because I'd not actually listen to much Cinderella I chose the album as one of the specials.

My first impression of the album was that it sounded very AC/DC-esque ... and I wasn't over impressed. That was until this particular song came through my speakers. The opening rift captured my attention ... and that was that ... the song still 'blows me away' with its atmospherics and its energy.

The Joining Of The Dots

My life has been anything but conventional. Ever since I can remember my connection with the otherworlds has been there. I only realised that others couldn't see what I could see when my gifts were pigeonholed in my late teens. 

I've had a number of near death experiences throughout my life. I've survived what should have been fatal car accidents and climbing accidents. Three years ago I died for two minutes and experienced being in two bodies at the same time. This body and an identical body that vibrates at a higher frequency.

I consider myself unique and different to everyone else, but not special in any way. I knew as a young child what my life was going to be like. I knew then it was going to be a tough ride and it has. But it was never meant to be any other than challenging. I wished to be like the natives and that is exactly what it has turned out like. I've known each time I was meant to die years before the event happened. Each time I was totally accepting I might not make it through; I know another key date is close on the horizon and dependent on whether my services are needed or not, I might not make it through the next event. I know the manner of my transition and I'm not at all concerned. It's been my life script I was aware of as a young child, that has played out exactly as I was shown. 

I remember the life path being given to me like a movie script; a series of recordings played in my mind complete with thoughts, feelings, emotions, lessons to learn and understandings gained. I took it in my stride as I thought everyone else on the planet received their life script in this way as a child. I know now that is not the case. I know why. 

I'm seen as odd and strange. That is the opinion of others and they are entitled to their opinions. My path was written and it has been played out to the letter.  However I now have taken a pathway I've never walked along before. All experiences up to a point a few years back were repeats. Failed choices meant replaying the life. Because I did what I hadn't done before I now walk a path I cant see written. I just see the end not the joining of the dots. I have accepted this as my life but it does sadden me not to have the blind path that the average human wanders. At times I crave to be born ignorant. But that was once my life plans ... and it cannot be anymore. Which is sad as it would be fun being on the earth oblivious to what it is really all about.

I enjoy my life and my insights. I enjoy guiding and helping others  but I dislike those moments when I really can't reveal all to people. I have a guideline as to what I can say and I can't say to people. Its like there is a script to follow. The effect of not following that script would be catastrophic as most people are not ready to know everything. It frustrates me when I have to pretend I don't know information and act ignorant. But if the script decrees that is the case it must be adhered to. 

Such is my life and my responsibility - Matthew James

'Carry Your Candle Of Light to every dark place'


Thoughts to get you Thinking #74

"If we fail to nourish our souls, they wither, and without soul, life ceases to have meaning.... The creative process shrivels in the absence of continual dialogue with the soul. And creativity is what makes life worth living."-- Marion Woodman

Stress, fear, negativity, too much to do and doing things for others at the expense of our own needs -- these all stifle our innate creativity. Relaxation, fun, meditation, and going after our dreams all get the creative juices flowing. Soul is always creative, always fresh and new.

How can you create more space in your life to allow the soul's energy out to play?

"I learned... that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic, striving, but it comes to us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness."-- Brenda Ueland

"I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of quiet life stimulates the creative mind."-- Albert Einstein

Not Just Bees, Trees Are Dying Off at an Alarming Rate With Little Public Attention

Waking Times: In the background of modern life, as people go on debating politics and working for a living, something dreadful is happening to the eco-systems which support us. Major disasters like the ongoing radioactive leak at Fukushima, the apocalyptic fires burning throughout Indonesia, even bee colony collapse disorder, seem to fall out of view in day-to-day life, as we seem to have lost our power and will to directly participate in the stewardship of planet earth. A new crisis is now happening all around us affecting trees. It appears that millions, hundreds of millions even, of trees are dying in North America and around the world from a basket of reasons, promising to completely and permanently alter the landscape and environment around us.

Tree are among the most abundant and the most critical organisms on planet earth, and only recently have we been able to assess just how many trees inhabit planet earth. A study published in 2015 gave us this picture...read more>>>...

Habitual Anger

Daily OM: Sometimes when we feel anger, it is coming from a deep place that demands acknowledgment and expression. At these times, it is important that we find healthy ways to honor our anger, remembering how dangerous it is to repress it. However, anger can also become a habit, our go-to emotion whenever things go wrong. Often this is because, for whatever reason, we feel more comfortable expressing anger than we do other emotions, like sadness. It can also be that getting angry gives us the impression that we've done something about our problem. In these cases, our habitual anger is inhibiting both our ability to express our other emotions and to take action in our lives...read more>>>...

Please LIKE and SHARE the magical Through A Druid's Eyes which is on Facebook

Why Change The Habit Of A Lifetime Now?

People are currently asking me to write more. 'Write about what?' I ask. Let your intuition lead you and explain about things close to your heart they say. I always make the excuse that 'I haven't the time'. Which is actually true, as there are not enough hours in the day between my 1-2-1 clients, phone clients and nature walks. I am writing again however ... I've resurrected my Intensive Mediumship Training sessions, so I'm currently writing up new module notes. I do these from scratch. Based on my own experiences. I do not cut and paste from the internet. My notes are own own. My concepts and training methods are my own. Which makes the process such a long winded one. So that's even less hours in the day to write. 

I blog to chill and relax. This is my down time. This and my nature photography are my recharge moments. Plus I need to get in as much walking as I can for health reasons. Once upon a time I would undertake around 2-3 hours a day in meditation, more often than not early in the morning as well as in an organised group. But that is not possible any more. Sadly. I do however meditate last thing at night to help me drift into sleep. My brain refuses to switch off so its the only way for me to log off these days. 

Where was I? My Intensive Mediumship Training has been changed slightly to IMT True Mentoring, due to the fact a 'novice' psychic medium has chosen to compete with me and describes their inexperienced methods as 'intensive mediumship training'. There is nothing I can do about the fact apart from brush myself down and rebrand my product in a different way. The mentoring sessions are being launched in a new way. A new web site is in the pipleine but for now  .. I still have the name Intensive Mediumship Training on my website http://imtworkshops.com/ where I describe the training as "Matthew James is the proud founder and sole facilitator of Intensive Mediumship Training™ modules. His teaching methods are unique & self developed, They are his own methods and DO NOT come from anyone else or from anywhere on the internet. They represent the hard yards of over 40 years of his own intensive mediumship training. With over 25 years experience in the mystical field Matthew James has extensive knowledge of psychic development techniques. Why not find out where your own potential can lead you? You cannot be in safer hands!" 

But it just shows you how brass necked and hard faced many people are. How ruthless this certain individual is, and what you are up against in the world. My attitude I suppose is commendable ... I just accept it and get on with things in the best ways I can after having my good name blackened and trade affected by this person. I've been around a long time in this business and have learnt that trends and mind sets have been around forever, its just a different face but the same mentality. 

I agree I need to write more regularly, to change the subject back to my original intention of this post. My mind is filled with the blossoming ideas of my new mentoring concept. So I guess I need to share with you, without giving away too many secrets,  my mentoring concepts and my spiritual background.

'How did it start?' 'What do I see and what made me turn to being a mystic?' All the usual life story reveals I guess ... because everyone's story is unique they say. Well mine is unique for sure. I am something of an enigma and a one off. I follow my own path and always have done. I guess I always will. The one that is open to ridicule and scorn ... its always been the case. So why change the habit of a life time now? 'Exactly'. - Matthew James

As consciousness seekers, we are in the midst of this process, and it is amazing to see people we thought might never come around, waking up to their truth.

Yesod

Yesod is the level of consciousness associated with the moon. It is the place of the unconscious mind. It is the place of pre-thought forms. These pre-thought forms are the energy currents that come just before an idea or a thing manifests. It is the spark of manifestation and of ideas. As such visiting this place will stir your unconscious mind with all sorts of things that could be manifested or wait to be manifested.

The trap with Yesod is becoming too content with yourself and your life to the point that you feel no more learning or changing is needed. You become too idle. Contentment is a powerful place to be when you can use this feeling level and propel yourself forward to greater heights in your evolvement. ..read more>>>...

Globalization: The Expressway to Universal Slavery

If humans were largely moral and ethical beings, then globalization could be a workable proposition. Unfortunately, the dark behavioral narcissism expressed by compulsive greed and an infinite appetite for power seems to have become the guiding precept of our collective nightmare.

If only the desire to dominate others and have a lot more than them were not the prime motivations for the global elite on top of the human food chain, we could all have our respective modest slice of happiness on this planet. The Utopia of globalization through institutions such as the United Nations (UN), World Bank, and International Monetary Fund (IMF) was supposed to eradicate the universal pestilence of war, extreme poverty, hunger and slavery using the might of the above supranational institutions to prevent the rise of so-called rogue nations usually ruled by dictators...read more>>>...

Why the blood-brain barrier is critical and how to maintain it

You all know about intestinal permeability, or "leaky gut." The job of the gut lining is to be selectively permeable, allowing helpful things passage into the body and preventing harmful things from getting in. Nutrients get through, toxins and pathogens do not. Leaky gut describes the failure of this vetting process. But what about "leaky brain"?

A similarly dynamic barrier lies between the brain and the rest of the body: the blood-brain barrier. Since the brain is the seat of all the conscious machinations and subconscious processes that comprise human existence, anything attempting entry receives severe scrutiny. We want to admit glucose, amino acids, fat-soluble nutrients, and ketones. We want to reject toxins, pathogens, and errant immune cells. Think of the blood-brain barrier like the cordon of guards keeping the drunken rabble from spilling over into the VIP room in a nightclub.

The blood-brain barrier (or BBB) can get leaky, just like the gut lining. This is bad...read more>>>...

Thoughts for the Day

"If you wish to know the mind of a man, listen to his words."-- Chinese Proverb

What passes over your lips each day?

Are your words typically negative, critical, gossiping, deceptive, illusory, justifying, blaming, manipulative and argumentative? Are they more uplifting, inspirational, positive, questioning, beautiful, loving, universal, truthful, accepting and supportive?

The throat is our centre of expression. Who we are sneaks out in our attitudes and in what we say.

"Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs."-- Pearl Strachan Hurd

Songs that inspired me #18

I first heard this song on an audio tape copy of the Bad Company compilation album "10 from 6" back in my university days. A friend at the time was heavily into Free like I was also, so one afternoon he handed me a copy of the latest from Bad Company and the rest is history... I immediately took to this song and its been one of my all time favourite songs ever since ...

The song is Electric Land ...


A Magical Mind

Daily Om: From blowing dandelion seeds into the air to throwing a penny into a fountain, we have all felt inspired to make a wish, to whisper our secret desires into the ears of the universe and wait for signs that we have been heard. Some wishes come true while others remain ethereal visions that either stay with us or fade like a star in the light of morning. Whether they come true or not, wishes are important missives, expressing our heart's desire as well as our intention to create something new in our lives. When we wish for something, our consciousness opens to receiving it, like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee.

There is something innocent and magical about making a wish, something that recalls the energy of childhood. Wishing is not about formulating a plan and following it step by step to attain a goal, which is the realm of adulthood. Wishing is more like a playful volley across the universe, an invitation to play. Waiting for the response is an integral part of the process...read more>>>...
