A brief blog post sharing an inspiring conversation between Amber Lyon and Mitch Schultz (writer and director of ‘DMT The Spirit Molecule’) about the DMT experience.

“..Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a psychedelic compound produced profusely in nature and inside the human body. DMT is rapidly spreading around the world due to its ability to induce powerful mystical and healing experiences in just a 10-20 minute journey.” (reset.me)

The reasons for dedicating a little blog post to this one interview are simple. I feel like I’m basically on the exact same energetic page as this wonderful ‘culture hacker’. Everything being said in these 50 minutes highly resonates with me and just the way this whole interaction is flowing with positivity made me excited to share it in this way.

I feel very much part of this paradigm shift that is taken place and talked about in the video. The feeling to make a difference (first of all by altering and expanding my own perception of reality) became even stronger after the past month having experienced different plant medicines (such as ayahuasca) and having had a DMT experience that literally turned me inside out..

..my body melted and evaporated. It merged with- and became everything. An endless, beautiful, liquid space became visible. Never had I felt such an incredible amount of energy at once. As an observer, as pure consciousness, I then witnessed and felt my physical self slowly being pieced back together again. The process of adjusting to this incredibly fascinating suit called the body was pleasant and highly exciting as I knew everything had just been changed in a positive and powerfully profound way.

I highly recommend anyone interested in exploring and expanding their own consciousness to check out this video – an exchange (between two beautiful human beings) in the form of a very accessible conversation about a powerful tool that can be used to dive deeper within and explore the magic and multidimensionality of existence – to ultimately create (or shift to) the reality you prefer. Yeah! More on DMT and ayahuasca in my previous blog post. My unconditional love to all!

pabloamaringo-paintingThe following post will be somewhat in relation to our upcoming trip to Mexico (Yucatan) and Peru and an experience we’d love to immerse ourselves in – an experience on an energetic level.

There are many natural ways for reaching altered states of consciousness and getting glimpses of other (parallel) realities and experiencing other consciousnesses. One extremely powerful way is the use of ayahuasca – this way you are guaranteed more than just a glimpse. Ayahuasca is a sacred healing medicine. It’s basically a mixture of the amazonian Banisteriopsis vine mixed with DMT (dimethyltryptamine) containing plants – creating a psychedelic visionary brew. DMT is a molecule found in nearly every living organism. Interestingly enough the compound is also released from our very own pineal gland at the moment of both birth and death – again the moment of a transition between dimensions. More on DMT and its relation to the world of spirit can be found in this fascinating documentary below.

According to the indigenous amazonian people the specific instructions on exactly which plants to combine (out of the hundreds of thousands out there) to create this visionary brew came directly from the spirits of the jungle. The healing power of ayahuasca enables one to clearly see what’s gong on beyond the physical and emotional realms that we are all so familiar with and many are so attached to and stuck in. It allows one to witness a different perspective, a different version of the same reality. A version on a vibrational, energetic, spiritual level.

One of the reasons that got me writing this post is this exciting new documentary on ayahuasca I’d love to share with you. It’s a very personal, open, adventurous, mind-bending work documenting the healing powers and multidimensional layers of nature – that we can allow ourselves to experience through powerful triggers such as this hallucinogenic plant (but which are fundamentally all to be found within ourselves). The film is an intense trip that got me even more excited to keep raising my frequencies, re-educating myself, letting go of old self-imposed limitations and this way broadening my focus and living a more exciting, magical and loving life. You can either rent or buy ‘Aya: Awakenings’ here.

I’d also highly recommend checking this insightful and inspirational interview with the lovely Rak Razam – entheogenic researcher and the director of the documentary. By embracing ‘tools’ such as ayahuasca we can allow ourselves an opportunity to realise that the greatest illusion is that of separation. It’s a powerful way of experiencing unification – understanding and knowing everything is connected. The most important message Rak Razam is addressing is the importance of a re-connection with our very own energetic, spiritual realms. Another lovely man who’s putting a very similar message out there and who I’d love to mention here is writer and journalist Graham Hancock.

To wrap up this post I’d like to quote a beautiful part of narration from ‘Aya: Awakenings’. “..Our energy bodies are awakening to a deeper understanding to the true nature of reality. Down there we’re in normal physical reality. We have filters that adjust our perception – and this is why every culture in the world has different views on how reality is. The path of shamanism is like climbing this mountain. This world is a school – but life’s not just about learning. It’s about remembering. At one time we knew everything, but when we come down here they blank out your memory. When you take the filters of, with tools like ayahuasca, you see the greater reality. The key is to remember.”

What I would love to share with you now is a specific message concerning an upcoming open contact between our civilisation and other civilisations beyond planet earth.

Are you ready, willing to be open, explore and recognise a new reality, a parallel existence in which there are no limitations? More and more people across this beautiful globe are beginning to realise these so called limitations (we have been experiencing for so many years) are actually self-imposed. The more we understand that they are ultimately illusionary and the more we face them and let go of old negative belief systems (which cause these limitations) – the more we start to experience a new, open, exciting, childlike and spacious way of interacting with our given physical reality (and allow ourselves to go beyond).

Especially this beautiful and powerful feeling of ‘spaciousness’ is something I experience more and more – by understanding knowing nothing has a built in meaning. Life is fundamentally meaningless. All is neutral. All just IS. When we start to give new positive and empowering meanings and definitions to situations and circumstances – we start seeing that being reflected in our day to day reality.. and real magic happens. The energy we put out is the energy we get back. It is really very simple.

Nowadays some might call these workings ‘the law of attraction’ – although I’d say it’s not something you actually attract to you. It’s something that’s already present – always, all the time. The idea is that you just match your frequencies to that particular reality (parallel dimension in this way) and by doing so you are now able to perceive it. I believe you cannot fully perceive what you are not a vibration of yourself. It’s a matter of tapping into the source, you could say. The one spirit that flows through us all, the one energy that connects and binds us all. If you are open to this magic then the following text might be of interest to you.

UFO WITNESS DECLARATION

FACT: From 1982 to 1985, large triangular and boomerang-shaped UFOs were reported over the Hudson Valley by over 7,000 credible witnesses, including police and officials at the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant.

FACT: In 1989 and 1990, large triangular and rectangular unidentified flying objects, one the size of an aircraft carrier, were reported over Belgium by over 2,000 witnesses, including police and military personnel.

FACT: In 1997, multiple sightings of a mile long boomerang-shaped UFO were reported over the state of Arizona by over 10,000 witnesses, including police, military personnel and Republican Governor Fife Symington.

We make no claims as to the nature or origin of these UFOs. However, those who have taken the time and effort to conduct serious, in-depth investigations into these reports know that these sightings are of real, physical crafts and are indisputable FACTS. Thousands of such sightings of physical crafts of unknown origin have been reported throughout the world for decades by credible witnesses, yet most who report such sightings are treated with ridicule, disbelief, scorn and even threats.

In light of the facts, we who have witnessed such unexplained crafts no longer accept this cynical mindset as realistic or credible.

Those of us who are witnesses to the UFO phenomenon know they exist for a fact. This is not an issue of speculation for such witnesses. However, we do not insist that non-witnesses must believe such objects exist, only that witnesses be treated with respect and that we deserve the same fairness and courtesy afforded to any individual or group who honestly expresses their point of view without fear of ridicule, punishment or persecution.

Recent polls clearly demonstrate that more than 50% of Americans believe that UFOs are a real phenomenon that deserves legitimate recognition and serious study by open-minded, qualified scientists, rather than being summarily dismissed as misperceptions, fantasies, hoaxes or hallucinations by cynical, unqualified debunkers. Over 36 million Americans have seen a UFO.

To put this statistic in political terms, these witnesses are also voters.

Therefore, we urge all who agree with the spirit of this declaration to send copies of this letter to their representatives, public officials, the media, the police, the military, airline officials, NASA and all candidates running for any public office to assure them that our votes will go only to those who acknowledge the UFO phenomenon as real and deserving of serious scientific investigation and who publicly endorse fairness and respect toward any witness who reports a UFO. (Bashar.org)

This was a message (in the form of a short text) from the extraterrestrial consciousness called Bashar – recently channeled by Darryl Anka. Again, if you are not familiar with ‘channeling’ and would like to know more then I would like to point out this earlier blog post – in which I explain some basic information on Bashar and the process of channeling.

If this resonates with you, if this is true for you then feel free to spread the message in it’s original form – as “it will aid and assist in the acceleration of this energy, of this awareness, of this awakening, of this state of being in all those who are at the very least willing to be open to this information, willing to be open to this energy, willing to be open to the reality of contact between your civilisation, our civilisation and other civilisations.. who are already observing, already present..” In the following video Bashar also explains that by sharing this message, their society, for the very first time “puts their first finger in our political arena”. The following text is another excerpt from the video below.

“We are awakening into the remembrance, into the knowledge, into the knowingness, that what and who you are as a being, as an expression of consciousness, is far greater, far more expansive, far grander than you have been taught to believe for many generations. And now you are beginning to awaken into that greater self, the greater you.

And what comes with that is.. more understanding that you are not isolated, not alone, that you are interconnected, that you are part and parcel of one creation that expresses itself in a multitude of ways. And thus then you are getting reflections, now, from us and others, of that awakening – of the awareness that you exist simultaneously on a multitude of levels, in a multitude of realities, in a multitude of dimensions. And we are happy, overjoyed and grateful to be capable of reflecting this to you in our interactions. This, for us, is how contact begins.

By the dissemination of ideas, reflections, and information that give you the opportunity to absorb them at your own pace, in your own timing, at your own discretion, for we force no ideas upon you whatsoever. It is up to you to determine what you choose to believe is true, for yourself as individuals, for yourselves as a society. It is up to you to reflect to us when you are ready for more, when you are ready to awaken into the greater reality of the interstellar community that surrounds you – of which you are a part, but of which you are only awakening to now.. your part in that entire family.

We are overjoyed to help you realize your connection, your involvement, your co-creation in the greater family of existence all around you. And we welcome you at this time into that family into an awakening state that allows you to experience yourself as interstellar, inter-dimensional beings of creation. As we ourselves in our own experience, in our own history, have awakened to this fact, have awakened to this perception, have awakened to this knowledge – we now are grateful and overjoyed to be present at the birth of your awakening. And thus then we thank you for sharing your experiences with us.” (Bashar.org)

Contact with other worldly civilisations happens all the time in many different ways – for instance through meditation or channels like Darryl Anka. Open contact is the next big leap. We have been told that this hasn’t happened in this way on a global scale yet because it would simply be too much for most people to handle. Their, to us enormous presence, would blow our circuits so to say, as we are not ready yet. Many people would very likely go into fear – not knowing how to handle these amounts of energy. I guess you could say that in this way we would perceive a somehow distorted version of what would actually be there.

First we need to start loving ourselves in order to fall in love with luminous reflections of that in our soundings and in others. An understanding of interconnectedness is the key here. Knowing we are all one. We are all created from the same energy, from the same light. As we collectively raise our awareness and continue to rewire ourselves- we get closer to the (higher) frequencies these other civilisations operate on. In this way the possibility for open contact gets higher as well. After crossing the 2012 threshold (For more info on this and extraterrestrial contact check out this video) – we are now welcomed into the galactic family. Open contact is getting closer and closer.

What is quite unique and rare (as Bashar himself points out as well) is that he actually recommends a certain specific book – as to, in a way, prepare yourself for this new parallel existence and some of the transformations and changes society and yourself might have to go through to be able to experience that. The book Bashar mentions is titled “A.D. After Disclosure: The People’s Guide to Life After Contact”. Check out the pdf version here. In the video below Richard M. Dolan – one of the authors, talks about the subject matter of the book. Have fun exploring that – I know I will. I’m looking forward seeing you on the spacious playground of this multidimensional crystal of creation! One love.

The Man Higher Up‘ is now publicly available. In 2011 I graduated with my short ‘The Night Land’ – about a businessman who chooses to step out of his familiar world and this way slowly starts to experience his reality very differently. It ended with him literally taking his first step into the unknown. 

One year later the project got my interest again. I decided to continue and finish it. To me the film visualises the inner changes this confused man is going through. Looking back I feel it also reflects the changes I myself was experiencing at that time. My reality was changing drastically, so the film was as well. To me, one of the most enjoyable (and unusual) aspects of the film is that it ends in a completely different way than it begins. Not only the films main character’s limited perception of his (malleable) reality changes, but the entire mood and style of the film does as well – starting of rather serious and structured and ending much more light and loving. Again, just a reflection of me allowing myself to have more fun, becoming more childlike and lightening up. Yeah!

I managed to finish the film only days before Dorothy and I moved to Vancouver. Although the film doesn’t work that well as a whole (mainly because of decisions made in a rushed state to get the film done in time) I’m satisfied with the final result. Especially the fact that we actually pulled it all of is amazing – as the project was pretty huge and challenging on many levels. Above all it was an investigation and a fun experiment. For more information feel free to visit its Kickstarter page.

If you would like to check out the full 50 min experimental feature then I recommend not watching the following excerpt. For some more neat excerpts and a goofy ‘making of’ check out my vimeo. Enjoy!

 

Currently I’m working on a new film project. Everything I’m putting into this new story comes straight from my heart, unfiltered. So far it has been a totally fresh and liberating experience in this way. It will be an adventurous fantasy movie wherein the characters mentally, spiritually and physically will transform, each in their own unique way. It will present the audience an experience in which they themselves have the opportunity to choose to transform as well. It will be shining a new and bright light one the dualistic way of portraying ‘good’ and ‘evil’. It will show different perspectives, ultimately all with an understanding that we are the creators of our own realities and that we are all connected. All is one. One is all. That is all I would like to share for now. Thanks for reading/watching. Much love.

For some time now I don’t see all the synchronistic moments in my life as so called ‘coincidences’ or ‘luck’ anymore. Currently I’m in the process of re-educating myself, letting go of old (limiting) belief systems and re-defining many things. To me, these synchronistic moments always feel as a confirmation that I’m on the right path, so to say. This following sentence (from a text I feel like sharing below) describes it in a way that is very close to my heart. “Synchronicity is your physiological indication of the interconnectedness of all things”.

It’s incredible to discover how many limitations we tend to impose upon ourselves. Realising they are ultimately all illusionary gives me a sense of space. An enormous amount of space to fill in the way I want to. The whole world becomes a playground. More and more I begin to experience life as a playful, adventurous and magical game. In physical reality there will always be limitations, which is great because it gives us a sense of focus. What’s great as well is letting go of some and this way expanding your focus within this exciting game of life!

The idea of absolutely nothing (no circumstance or situation) having a built-in meaning also resonates with me on a deep level. Nothing. No-thing. All is neutral. All just is. Life is fundamentally meaningless. We are here to fill it in the way we want to and to give it a meaning – which is representative of our state of being, our frequency. By defining things a certain way we see that being reflected around us and in this way we literally create our own reality. “The giving of meaning is the act of creation on your physical level”. Like there is no such thing as THE perfect diet, there is no such thing as THE meaning of life either. There are many meanings (all equally valid), cause there are many different lives (all equally awesome). All different expressions, different point of views from the same one source (spirit, god, energy, etc) that connects us all.

A perspective like in the text below helps me understand and feel, in my own way, the underlying mechanism of existence – the multidimensional crystal of creation! Being aware of how life can work for you, if you choose and allow it to, is a truly amazing thing and something you can master by practising it every single day. Ok, even if you don’t believe the following words come from an extraterrestrial entity called Bashar (channeled by Darryl Anka) – the message itself might still resonate with you, who knows.. (check out this previous blog post for more information and an introduction to bashar and channeling).

“Synchronicity and Meaning — which, if you wish, may be your entitlement for this particular interaction. 

Synchronicity: we have discussed this a few times with many of you. What is it? Synchronicity: coincidence. As we perceive the interactions we have had with your civilization, we perceive that you think of coincidence more often than not as a fortunate accident. Maybe an unfortunate accident – but an accident many times nonetheless, random chance. “Oh, it just happened that way.” One in a million, as many of you are very familiar with the idea of, “Oh, it’s just the odds. Had to happen sooner or later.”

But the idea, you see, is that co-incidence is quite a bit more than that. Synchronicity: the right place, the right time, interacting with exactly who you need to be interacting with at that moment is far more than random chance. It is representative of the very foundational structure of existence itself, at least as far as physiological reality is concerned.

How does it happen? What is it? And how, perhaps, can you create more of the positive form of coincidence in your life, always knowing you’re at the right place, always knowing you’re at the right time, always knowing you’re interacting with exactly who and what you need to be interacting with to
serve you best and to be of best service? How to increase that phenomena, as you say?

Well, first of all understand what it is and why it occurs. Synchronicity is your physiological indication of the interconnectedness of all things. Everything is connected to every other thing. Everything is an extension from every other thing. And why is this so? From our perspective because of the following idea: because everything is the same one thing, manifesting in all the multidimensional ways it possibly can. You experience this multidimensionality stretched out in a linear time frame because linear time is one of the ways you have of experiencing your physical dimension. But all things that occur actually exist all at once simultaneously.

“What do you mean by that? Not everything is happening right now, if it were, I wouldn’t be able to do one of these things. Everything would be happening all around; I’d be very confused.”

Yes. But that is why the definition of physical reality contains the ability to perceive linear time, in a sense, as many of you have already said, to keep everything from happening all at once, because your physical senses are not built to handle that. That does not mean they still do not exist all at once. To describe and explain this briefly, once again, refer to what we have called your radio analogy. You all know what the device is on your planet that you call radio, that all the programs that you could possibly listen to on that radio at any given moment are all there at the same time, all coming to the radio all at once. But the only one you hear at any given moment is the one you have your dial attuned to.

Physical reality is like that; this is an appropriate analogy. At any given moment, your focus of perception, your definition and your beliefs, your emotions and your thoughts represent the idea and the station, the frequency, if you will, that you are tuned into. And so that’s all you get; that’s all you pick up; that’s all you receive — is what you are focused to receive. All the other possibilities, all the other programs are still going on, and you could be receiving any number of them. But you only get the one, at any given moment, that you are most attuned to, and you are attuned because of how you have been taught to be attuned, through your perspectives, your attitudes, your point of view. That is your dial of reality, of physical experience.

Now, how do you change that dial to a program that perhaps is more to your liking? Very simple, you get in touch with the idea of the definitions you already have bought into that are generating the program you’re already getting, asking yourself: what kind of beliefs, what kind of definitions would I have to buy into in order to have the types of experiences I am having in my life, in my programming?

Once you get in touch with what those definitions are that are responsible for your original program, in rewriting them and redefining them, you are then switching the dial to another program. Because physical reality is only, and always has been, and always only shall be, the absolute, 100% mirror reflection of your strongest beliefs, your strongest definitions, your strongest programming.

Even your own physiological scientists now, your theoretical physicists, as you call them, are beginning to realize that physical reality does not actually have an empirical existence by itself, that the definitions, the perspectives, you have been taught are actually what is responsible for generating what you have for so long thought to be a separately existing physical reality that you just happen to exist within. You are beginning to realize this is not so, and that everything you have experienced your physical reality to be has always been the product of your strongest belief systems about what it could be, or might be, or what you fear it will be; for your strongest beliefs and your strongest emotions combine to generate a manifestation of that reality.

If it is a positive emotion, a positive belief, that’s the blueprint you’ve created; that’s what you activate, that’s what you get. If it is a negative blueprint, a negative emotion, you will get a negative pattern. This is simple physics. In many of the things we will be discussing with you, this day of your time, realize we are not speaking philosophically so much; we are not speaking in analogies so much; we are not speaking figuratively so much. We are talking pragmatic tools that actually are responsible for the generation, manipulation and manifestation of your physiological day-to-day experiences. You are the creators of your reality. Whether you do that consciously or unconsciously is up to you.

Now, synchronicity, having what you call a life that is blessed — always running into exactly who you need to — a charmed life, having exactly what you need at your disposal when you need it; not a second too late, not a second too soon, just right there — this is what you usually in your society call luck. There is no such thing. Not really, not in the sense you mean it.

You know, an aside for a moment, many individuals now in your reality, in your world, are beginning to explore what you have called metaphysical concepts, and some individuals find that they cannot believe that such ideas exist. However, they will still believe in luck; a more metaphysical concept I cannot imagine! The idea to imply that, “Oh, it’s just luck,” completely detaches the idea of that experience from any kind of physiological cause and/or effect.

The idea of even what are being discussed as metaphysical principles, they are not above and beyond the idea of physics. They are simply another state of physical understanding that have their own laws, that follow their own rules, and are tied very strongly into the idea of your physical reality. The so-called supernatural is simply another level of nature. There is nothing really beyond nature about it. It is simply, perhaps for now, a little bit beyond your typical day-to-day understanding, but that does not make it disassociated from the ideas of your physiological reality.

Luck, the concept of luck, to some degree implies even more deeply than any metaphysical concept that something could occur which is not attached to the mainstream of cause and effect. It does not really exist. Everything that you have called luck, both positive and negative, is the result of setting up a momentum, a synchronicity momentum, that takes its cue from the patterns of belief and definitions you have bought into most strongly in life. How you generate synchronicity in your life, more coincidence, is utterly determined by the type of meaning you put into the circumstances that happen in your life.

We have discussed from time to time with many of you the idea that no circumstance and no situation has built-in meaning. All situations are summarily blank, devoid of meaning to begin with. Empty. They do not bring meaning with them. They are simply neutral props, arrangements of surface symbols that have no meaning unto themselves other then the meanings you have been taught to give them. So automatically do you apply meanings to certain situations, because they are so ingrained within you to do so, that you think that the situation brings with it its own built-in meaning.

But it doesn’t. It’s just that you very quickly apply a meaning on a very unconscious level, because that’s what you’ve been taught to do. “When you see this, sonny boy, or little girl, it means this. Don’t forget it or you’ll be in big trouble.”  “Yes mother; yes father.”  “Over and over and over again, I’ve told you when you see this, it means this. Steer clear, or do this or do that.”  “Yes mother; yes father.”

Pretty soon — doesn’t take very long at all — you absolutely buy, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the meaning you have been instructed to believe a circumstance had is the only meaning it can have, and that it takes you sometimes a very long time to realize, “Oh, wait a minute. It could mean this, too. Doesn’t always have to mean that. It could mean this.” But then you go through a long process on your planet of unlearning the old ideas to give yourself an opportunity to learn new applications. It doesn’t have to take that long.

And we are not necessarily suggesting that many of the things your parents tell you are not for your own benefit. But the idea in your society has been carried to an extreme, where you simply buy into every single idea that you society tells you — very automatically, more automatically than you think. And you automatically apply the meanings you have been taught to every given situation, and do not understand why certain things keep repeating in your life — because you are not consciously in touch with the fact that the meanings you keep applying to the circumstances that happen are what cause them to perpetuate themselves in endless cycles of repetition.

The idea, therefore, is to understand that while everything does exist simultaneously, you are still in the act of co-creating it with the Infinite Creation, and the way you, as aspects of Creation — and all beings within Creation, as aspects of Creation — create and co-create and continue to expand the idea of creation is by applying meaning to the surface symbols that already exist. The meaning you give them determines their content, determines their effect, determines the life you experience. The giving of meaning is the act of creation on your physical level. That’s what determines what you experience.

And also, the type of meaning you start to impart to the circumstances in your life will then create a momentum that will determine what kind of circumstances, even on the surface, begin to crop up in your life, and what kind of meaning or significance they have for you. Now, understand this: every single event, no matter how small, every single action, no matter how seemingly insignificant has effect and impact on your life. And you are inexorably intertwined with every single thing you experience. You have helped create it for one reason or another. Now, certain events may not have as high a degree a significance for you as it may have for someone else in that event, but your presence in the event, your coincidental presence in that event has still created the factors necessary to help set it up, so that whoever needs to get the impact out of it can.

There are no accidents, and I am talking down to the most fundamental idea. There are no accidents about all of you that are present in this interaction today. It is not an accident who you are sitting next to. It is not an accident what they are wearing. It is not an accident what you ate for lunch, if you did eat lunch. It is not an accident what you notice, what you hear. The smallest scrap of paper that blows in the wind at your feet is not an accident. It is all your choreography; it is all your orchestration.

Granted, a large degree of it is automatic, on automatic pilot, as you say, so that you don’t necessarily consciously have to be aware of every single detail and organize that. That would be too much for your mentality. But the idea nonetheless is that whether it has a great deal of significance for you, or a small amount of significance, it still has some significance if you experience it at all. You are incapable of experiencing any event in your life that doesn’t belong there. Nothing in your lives is superfluous or extraneous. There are no extra creations. Everything fits, every single thing.

When you begin to look at life that way, when you begin to realize that where you are is exactly representative of who you are, then you can get a handle, as you say, on the definitions of who you are, and if you don’t prefer the definitions of what it is you are experiencing, you can change it. It is in your power to do so, and always has been. Always. And it is a very simple thing to do. You have created all that reality to begin with, anyway, and you have done it automatically, effortlessly — so effortlessly you don’t even necessarily know you’re doing it.

You can still create any reality you want with the same degree of effortlessness and automatically. Just because the idea has been ingrained within your society that having a life of ecstasy is harder than having a life of pain doesn’t mean it really has to be so. That’s only one of your society’s shared consensus definitions. You don’t have to buy into it any more.

There is absolutely nothing inherent within the idea of positivity and negativity that says, “Negativity will happen more often than positivity. It is easier to come by, and negativity is more representative of reality than positivity is.” Look at the tales you tell in your society. You tell a tale, and individuals in that tale — oh, perhaps there may be a moment or two where they are having a good time, but then they are involved in a great deal of conflict and struggle and strife. And you say, “Oh, that was a very realistic story!”

But then you go and watch a story and everyone is having a good time, and everyone finds and discovers exactly what they need, and works the situation out and lives happily ever after. “Huh, nice fairy tale. Too bad life isn’t really like that.”

Why not? There is no reason why one should be more representative of life than the other, except the definitions you have chosen to buy into. The only reason your society has bought into the idea is because the type of society you have created yourselves to be is highly focused in physical reality, one of the most highly focused we have ever discovered. And because of that a particular idea came along with that degree of focus, the ability to forget that you created it to begin with.

You have played the game of forgetting for thousands of your years of counting. But now you have played all that limitation and forgetting out, almost completely. So now you are as a society beginning to wake up and say, “Well, wait a minute; there must be something more. I have been living a particular type of dream. We have been walking in our sleep; now we are waking up… into another dream, a dream we prefer. A dream that lets us know we are more than we previously thought, and can be anything we really wish to be.”

All reality is a dream; all dreams are real. You are dreaming right now. I mean that quite literally. This interaction, in every sense of the word, is a dream. It is simply that you have labeled that this dream shall have the aspect and image you call solidity, reality. It is no different than anything else that passes through your imagination, except that you define it to be more solid than anything else. That’s the only difference, that one definition, that one concept.

But you see how powerful those concepts are. Because that’s all it takes – is that one definition to create everything your society has held to be true for thousands of years. That’s all it takes, and that’s why it’s very easy to transform your lives. Because once you get a hold on the idea that the definition is the only thing responsible for any seeming barrier in your life, once you redefine it, away it dissolves, back into the essence, the energy from which it was created. And what crystallizes in its place is the new definition. It is as simple as that.

Now, there may be many techniques and rituals that will aid and assist you in the processing of this understanding, to arrive at a time where you can allow yourself to change your reality very quickly. If you desire such processes, if you must take time to do this, then that’s your choice, and you can learn much from it. Do not berate yourself for taking the time; it is what you need, according to the definitions you believe you are capable of. That is not cause for bereavement or self-judgment. But the idea simply is that these things do not have to take as long as they have taken and this is what we are here to assist you with — to understand that the meanings you give to life determines utterly the type of synchronicity you experience. Whether it be positive or negative, conscious or unconscious is up to you, but you are the creators of your reality, both individually and collectively by telepathic agreement.

You will generally abide by the rules of the game that you have all agreed to play, but there is a lot more leeway, as you say, in those rules than many of you have thought. It is not as rigidly structured as you have been led to believe. And especially now that you are in your transformational age where you are exploring the idea of what consciousness really is is there a great deal of freedom to express, what you have called for so long, your free will, but really don’t ever consciously know you’re using. Now is the time to become conscious on your planet that you really have free will, and what that really means.

At this timing, in return for your willingness to interact with us as ambassadors of your civilization, and allowing me to function as an ambassador of our respective civilization within the Association of Worlds, we will let you know that your interaction for us is a gift. Our unconditional love creates ecstatic joy in your willingness to co-create this interaction this day with us. Because through you we are allowed to see that many more ways that the Infinite Creation has of expressing itself within the creation that it is. And this is a gift to us.” (Bashar.org)

I love telling stories. There are endless ways of doing so. Today I started a new musical story telling project. Although I’m not actually producing my own music (yet) – in this way I’ll be creating new exciting audio landscapes for others to travel through. I’ll be doing this by compiling and arranging different wonderfully atmospheric tracks by artists I love and in this way creating a new experience.

The last mix I put together was titled ‘shifting realities’ and that’s what I feel I was literally experiencing. It’s a fantastic feeling to realise you are the creator of your own reality. I’ll say it again – just do what you love doing. Do it with integrity and without any expectations, so you won’t limit the possibilities of what might reach and surprise you. The more you do this, the more you’ll see the changes arising within and around you. For me all these magnificent recent changes inspired me to, among other things, start this new project called inner explorations.

To start of the first journey I decided to rename and use this last mix I had created just before we left to British Columbia. Listening back to it while discovering more and more exciting new (and old) music I realised that I wanted to pursue this direction of storytelling – presenting a soundtrack to a film others can visualise, fill in and experience in their own way. I felt this was already a good transition between the more techno oriented universe of ‘snagman’ and these new inner adventures which will be more subtel an soothing. These mixes will be meditative in nature – so sit back, go within and explore..

Allow me to share, in a nutshell, some (to me) amazing sources of information that are helping me in the process of re-educating myself, triggering me in seeing things in a new light – defining them differently and by doing so making me realise that magic can be very real and ultimately all truths are true.

When I look back at my so called spiritual path I would say the influence of certain films definitely helped me out in discovering what resonated and what was true for me. Probably the very first film that really inspired me and already rewired some of my internal circuitry was the Matrix (1999). I remember being an eleven year old boy and going to the movies with my mom just after I got an operation (circumcision – since it was too tight down there). Having only seen the poster I knew this was the movie we had to go and see. I was blown away and it got me hooked and excited about filmmaking. I fell in love with all the diverse and magical stages it embodies – like life itself.

Some years passed where society and people around me made it look like reality is fixed, solely physical and the same for everybody. Like many kids growing up I bought into this way of looking at the world and these limitations people tend to impose on themselves. It was time for me to begin to let go of those belief systems that weren’t working for me and diving into a more exciting and multidimensional existence. Again it was time to loosen up, mentally and spiritually that is. It was time to free my mind and soul.

As a related first video I’d like to share the following wise words from a worm – showing us a path..

Another chapter started when more than five years ago my girlfriend and I started practicing transcendental mediation. I became very curious when I discovered that David Lynch was practising this form of meditation for many years already. To me he was one of the most honest filmmakers, expressing himself by creating dreamworlds that felt real to me. He was visualising other dimensions that came from a truthful place in which I would loose myself and was able to transcend.. turning his films into deep and powerful experiences for me. So anyways, we were loving this simple and powerful technique to quiet the body and mind and to just be. In the now, the only thing there is – in which everything exists.

During that time things started to accelerate even more when we discovered Eckhart Tolle. Hearing this lovely man describe, in these beautiful, yet so very simple, crystal clear and profound words exactly what we were experiencing, was extremely soothing, highly inspiring and opened us up tremendously. After that things have just been going exponentially faster. One of the main reasons being the vast amount of information so easily accessible on the wonderful world wide web. Our (perception of our) reality has dramatically changed over the past few years, making everyday an adventure. Yeah!

I would like to let the video’s in this post do most of the talking. As a second one I’d love to share a beautiful and very accessible short meditative documentary (in four parts) – showing us that one spirit connects us all. Outer worlds reflecting our inner world.

Along my path, build according to sacred geometry, paved with crystals and meandering along pyramids – I encountered another incredible source of information that showed me that we are actually, literally, creating everything ourselves. I’m talking about a wonderful man called Daryl Anka, a filmmaker who is channeling another consciousness called ‘Bashar’. If you’re not familiar with channeling then perhaps a great way to find out is to check out the following video in which Daryl explains it in his own words. It’s a great introduction to what kind of ideas you can expect from Bashar. And as he puts it himself as well, this can just be one of many ‘permission slips’ to allow ourselves to open up a new kind of magical reality. Currently this is a source of information, a trigger, a tool that I happen to resonate very strongly with. Realising that all of this is again just a reflection of what is already vibrating within me, is a fantastic feeling. Going within is the key, as nothing exists outside of you.

One of many things I love about Bashar is that he has a great sense of humour and whereas other channels can sometimes be somewhat vague and abstract, Bashar’s language is very clear, direct and simple. The core message that Bashar is sharing with us is that simply by acting on your highest excitement every single moment without any expectations of the outcome – you can be more of you and you’ll be able to actually see what you’re already a vibration of. Excitement being your signature vibration.

Putting this into practice has changed the way in which I define things, shown me that life can be so called magical if you allow it to be and it enhanced a deep feeling of interconnectedness of all that is. It also led us here to Vancouver, which feels like the perfect place to be at this very moment. Next month we are leading ourselves to Los Angeles, where we will participate in and co-create one of Bashar’s channeling sessions! It’s will actually be a special occasion as it will be Daryl Anka’s 30th year of channeling Bashar. If you would like to explore some more – there are many other videos to be found on youtube.

What I set out to do here is to reflect on my own experiences. Not implying anything at all. Also, I feel no need to impose any belief system on anyone else. Not anymore. I used to do this, especially to people close to me. I wanted them to experience the very same thing is I was experiencing – as it felt so incredible. For me I feel I’ve reached a point where I truly understand everyone is walking their own path, obtaining different tools in different dungeons and facing different beasts along their way. I sense the difference now in showing people different doorways rather than trying to push someone through my very own door. Realising that this door works for me and might not do the same for others is extremely liberating.

As I look back I feel that, in those moments (where I was actually forcing something upon someone) I actually wouldn’t genuinely believe in what it is I said I was believing in. The moment I totally let go of it – it started to really work for me. My environment, my reality would literally change around me, with me, reflecting my vibrations, my state of being. Lately I’m experiencing this in an explosion of synchronistic moments in many forms around me and an intense feeling of my world becoming more and more malleable. The only thing I feel I can do now is to show what works for me and radiate that.

Through Bashar many more exciting doorways opened, one of them being ‘Cutting Edge Consciousness‘ – a fascinating radio show hosted by Freeman Michaels and Barnet Bain. This video shows them together with Daryl Anka, discussing things like letting go of self-imposed limitations, creativity and new alternative ways of storytelling – something being done in an upcoming film called ‘Milton’s Secret’ (based on a children’s book written by Eckhart Tolle). You can find out more and support this wonderful and transformational project on Indiegogo.

As yet another great source of information here in this post I would like to share the following link that Dorothy and I discovered yesterday. Besides an entertaining retro intro and very (early) 90’s looking audience it features Andrew Bayuk channeling an entity called Elan (coming from the same civilisation as Bashar and using a very similar language). Same content, different packaging. Check it out here.

The logic and bendable rules of films like the Matrix (as well as those of many other ‘fantasy films’) have actually turned into reality for me – where I literally experience it is indeed not the spoon that bends. It is me. What I see is just a reflection of my belief systems, my frequency, my vibrations, my reality, my natural self. Don’t wait for your outer world to change. Change yourself, your inner world first and allow reality to function like a mirror.. and have fun, create and radiate!

I would like to wrap up this post with a final video (very similar to the first one in many ways). I present to you a Jedi master deeply connected to the energy of nature – sharing his knowledge and showing us yet another exciting path. Always resonated, these words have with me. Over the past few years I’ve allowed them to become reality for me as well.

This was a glimpse of ideas that work for me in allowing myself to direct my own dreamlike movie called life. Perhaps they will for you too. Take it or leave it. The choice is up to you! Lots of love to all.

kluskus-viewThe following words were written down by me in the last week of our time volunteering in the remote native community of Kluskus. While looking at the photos I took during our stay (which can be seen on my flickr) I realised that the ‘darker side’ of the situation in Kluskus wasn’t visible at all – so I felt the urge to at least briefly explain that.

By darker side I’m mainly referring to the huge alcohol and drugs problems that are present here, as well as still in many other north American and other indigenous tribes. In Kluskus this started becoming an even bigger issue when native children literally where taken from their homes and put in so called ‘residential schools':

The Indian residential schools of Canada were a network of “residential”(boarding) schools for Aboriginal peoples of Canada (First Nations ["Indians"], Metis, and Inuit [formerly "Eskimos"]) funded by the Canadian government’s Department of Indian Affairs, and administered by Christian churches, most notably the Catholic Church in Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada. The system had origins in pre-Confederation times, but was primarily active following the passage of the Indian Act in 1876, until the mid-twentieth century. An amendment to the Indian Act in 1920 made attendance at a day, industrial or residential school compulsory for First Nations children and, in some parts of the country, residential schools were the only option. The number of residential schools reached 80 in 1931 but decreased in the years that followed. The last federally-operated residential school was closed in 1996. In total, about 150,000 First Nations children passed through the residential school system.

There has long been significant historiographical and popular controversy about the conditions experienced by students in the residential schools. While day schools for First Nations, Metis and Inuit children always far outnumbered residential schools, a new consensus emerged in the early twenty-first century that the latter schools did significant harm to Aboriginal children who attended them by removing them from their families, depriving them of their ancestral languages, and exposing many of them to physical and sexual abuse at the hands of staff and other students. This consensus was symbolized by the June 11, 2008 public apology offered, not only by Prime Minister Stephen Harper on behalf of the Government of Canada, but also by the leaders of all the other parties in the Canadian House of Commons. As well, just nine days prior, the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established to uncover the truth about the schools. As of 2013 the Commission’s hearings are ongoing. (Wikipedia.org)

So they were abused and basically brainwashed and lost their culture and connection to nature this way. By making friends and talking to some very open and lovely people with good hearts we gradually got a clearer picture of how clouded the situation in Kluskus actually was. Because a lot actually happens behind closed doors or in the nearest town (a 3 hr drive) – where many people go and spend the little money they have (on alcohol and or drugs).

We heard quite some insane stories, which I won’t go into here. I just felt it was important to make some more people aware of this.. one of those many important things you won’t really hear about on the news or read in the newspaper. We feel one of our jobs here is to make people aware of what harm they are doing to themselves, their environment and to their own children – who are actually being born having alcohol problems. They are already suffering from something called ‘fetal alcohol syndrome’. When this term was being described to us it became clear why some kids here were behaving rather strangely sometimes and had such a short attention span for example. We’re showing them another way of looking at the world around them. Showing them a healthy way of living – like eating more freshly grown vegetables from their own garden instead of cheap artificial food from the supermarket.

Of course we can only show them a doorway. They are the ones that will have to make a conscious choice and walk through it. They will have to find their own ways, get in touch with their culture again and reconnect with spirit. The one spirit that connects us all. Lots of good things are being set in motion again, though. The ‘pow wow’ being one of those – three days of celebrating nature and people coming together paying respect to their ancestors by singing, drumming and dancing. The energy was very high, an amazing event.

We met a beautiful woman and her mother. There was a strong connection between us. It didn’t take long before we were sharing our views on looking at reality and finding out we shared a similar belief – basically saying what you give is what you get back. It was a beautiful experience feeling both of them opening up. As you can see in some of the pictures we shared food with them, did yoga and meditated together. They learned us how to stretch/scrape deer hide (skin) and to make a drum from it. They also helped us to make our very own traditional moccasins (shoes). It was a constant exchange, both on a physical and a spiritual level.

The organisation we were volunteering for asked us to make a short documentary on the current situation of the people in Kluskus – especially focussing on the introduction of the relatively new community garden (which we were taking care of) and the positive effect it was having on the community. Although that was indeed the case, it wasn’t that present yet and we gradually found out and felt there was much more to tell.. so we decided to somewhat shift the focus of our documentary and sketch a more complete picture of the situation.

On the very last day we interviewed our new dear friend. Again she opened up and revealed to us more of the path she is walking right now. This turned out to be a wonderful healing process for her. We were very pleased to hear and feel she enjoyed sharing her story and visions concerning healing the community and reconnecting with nature by bringing back lost traditions such as the pow wow and the ‘sweat lodge’. Especially the latter was something she was deeply passioned about. ‘Sweating’ is a purification ceremony where people come together and pray/meditate. Hot lava rocks are being used to heat up the sweat lodge, which is an intimate dome shaped hut built in a traditional and natural way.

We left Kluskus with a good feeling in our hearts. Knowing that it’s growing. Knowing its people are slowly changing, each having their own things to go through and experiences to learn from. Growing and getting in touch with themselves and their environment again. Stopping the habit of continuously numbing themselves and choosing (not being afraid) to feel. I love you, Kluskus.

twinpeaks-audreydaleThe idea to start this here blog came during my time in the small, remote indigenous community called Lhoosk’uz Dené Nation (Kluskus) in BC, Canada.

When I originally wrote down the following words – my girlfriend (Dorothy) and I left Kluskus already and were on our way back to Vancouver again, where we arrived the previous month.

After living in Amsterdam for six years it was time for us to move and go and check out some different parts of our beautiful planet. We decided British Columbia, Canada would be the starting point of our new adventures – Kluskus to be precise.

So this will be the starting point of this blog as well, hence its name. I have a feeling it might turn into somewhat of a digital diary for me, focussing on beautiful experiences I feel like sharing. We’ll see. Like the path that I’m walking, I don’t know where this will be going.. and I love it. More and more I’m embracing the unexpected and the unknown.

By doing that, having full trust and acting on my excitement (without any expectations), I’m literally seeing my surroundings, my reality, change with me – reflecting my state of being. Currently there’s just an explosion of synchronistic events happening in my life, which makes me excited even more and confirms I’m on the right path. Life can be so magical if you choose to believe it is. Believing is seeing.
