When I hear the Om vibration it means I am in tune. My mind has slowed down. I am a part of everything. And nothing can go wrong.
When I hear the Om vibration it means I no longer have to search. I am in the place to be right now. I must know and remember this.
When I hear this wonderful sound, I now have the answer. Even if it does not feel like it, I am on track once again.
At times it simply means to pay attention. Othertimes it means that this is the answer, especially when I have been searching and it appears with a thought that I may have otherwise discarded.
When I hear this sound it means I should no longer have fear. I am moving into oneness. I should keep good thoughts of a world most do not know exists.
Hearing this melody means God and The Universe is with me, along with my teacher and my teachings. I am blessed beyond comprehension. As I continue to pay attention it will only get better.
As I tune in to this wonderful voice I am awakening in the dream, to my real state. I am peace. I am love. I am happiness. All is accomplished. Anything else is simply extra wonder. I will see the magic of the Universe as I play my part and watch it unfold.
Whne I hear this universal vibration this is the end of worry, the begining of life beyond my dreams, the result of my meditations. This is life anew. I must move with it. Live by it. Cultivate it.
I just got married a few weeks ago. It was a somewhat of a big wedding, and a big deal in my life. By the way, this is not my first marriage. As a matter of fact, it is not my second marriage. This is my fourth marriage. I have heard it said that the fourth is the charm! What? You haven’t heard that one? LOL. Having said that, I must say that everyone says that Kelly and I seem to belong together. They also talk about how we look at one another, and they rave about how wonderful she is. People also tell me that I deserve to be happy, and I say, “perhaps I have truly figured it out now.” Let’s hope so lol.
The wedding was to be outside in the courtyard of the Baronette Hotel, and the reception to be in the ballroom connected. The day was starting out cloudy with a slight chance of rain. I soon found myself thinking about a story my grandmother told me years ago about a man who was reported to be not the nicest man in the world.
This man had done a lot of misdeeds, and his loving family worried about his fate in terms of God and Heaven. On his dying bed he told his family that God told him that if it was a sunny day on the day of his death, that following day, that meant that he will be forgiven and make it to Heaven. That day was predicted to be a very stormy day, just like the previous day, and the family was quite sad. But to everyone’s surprise, not only was the forecast wrong about the terrible storm expected, but it became the brightest sunny day. My grandmother said, “That was God!”
I wondered if that would be the case with our wedding. Would God step in and make it a sunny day? It was gloomy that morning and I was hoping that there would not be rain on our outdoor wedding and our guests. I thought about the story Gee Gee (my grandmother) told me about the dying man. I thought to God and the Universe that it would be nice if it was sunny for our wedding. Then I wondered if I was tripping and being superstitious, thinking that story was perhaps told to me way back then for my fourth wedding day experience.
When the wedding started and we were at the hotel in the courtyard, it was gloomy but at least it was not raining. But it looked like it would at any minute. I said to the minister who was marrying us “at least it is not raining.” She said, “even if it does, we will continue the ceremony in the rain.”
As the ceremony began, I was thankful that the rain did seem to be holding off, though it was quite gloomy as I stood at the altar waiting on my beautiful bride. As Kelly walked out and began to come down the aisle, suddenly the sun came out shining down upon us. I was surprised thinking ” Wow! God is with us.” Even more to my surprise, after the wedding, person after person talked about how the sun came out just as we stood together, They all said that it was God shinning on us. My good friend Kevin Ransome’s comment was the most memorable when I saw him the next day. He talked about how gloomy it started out and how cold he was sitting in the courtyard. Kevin then said, “as soon as Kelly came out, the sun came out and started beaming! And I instantly got warm!” Then he said, “That was God!” I thought to myself “I was not tripping at all. It happened just like in the story. That Was God!”
So many people told us what a great time and how much fun they had at our wedding and reception. Some said it was the best time they ever had at a wedding. Others thanked us for a great date night. Others said they were inspired by us, our love, and the love they felt in the place. Once again I am convinced all of that was God. Because these were all the things we had hoped for and more on our special day.
I apologize to anyone who wanted to be there that we could not invite. There were so many people I personally wanted to invite, and I kept being reminded by Kelly and the wedding planner that the venue only allowed for a certain amount of people. And I have a large family. To all our people who were there and were not there. We love you.
Question: I have someone in my world who I do not trust. I am convinced more and more daily that they are trying to make moves against me. Getting them out of my circle may be delicate because of how close they are and the harm that they may possibly cause to people I care for. What do I do?
Craig’s Answer: I once had someone in my life similar to what you are describing. They were being somewhat sneaky, pretending to by my friend but really trying to do things that would be potentially harmful to what I was responsible for behind my back. I meditated more and asked God and The Universe to take care of it. To my surprise, within a super short period of time their world became rather challenging, and they were so preocupied with what was going on they could not even focus on the things they were working on that threatened my situation. All was taken care of by God and the Universe.
Situations like this have happened at various times over the years with similar results. Sometimes the Universe would totally handle the problem and other times I would be guided to act and see miraculous results. Sometimes the other party would completely change how they were acting. Each time it was rather peaceful. I say step up your meditations and connection to your spirit and then trust in more guidance and protection.
I found myself awakening from the strangest dream. It all took place in a dark setting even though it was daytime. It was sort of like in certain movies when it seems like the theme is dark and the sun rarely shines. In such a setting, even when the sun does shine, it seems to only peer through the darkness. This is how it felt in my dream, quite dark.
In the dream a very good friend of mine was working for my business and he also had a crew to help with his work. He and his crew were stranded on the road, and could not get to the next job. Not only was he trying to get to the next job, but he was trying to get to my wife (The beautiful lady I was with in this strange dark world) He was very much interested in her sexually and about to make his move. The two of us, my dream wife and I, were having some marital problems at the time and my friend in this realm knew this. And yet, there he was pursuing her despite our friendship, and in despite of his own marriage. It was surprising, and felt like a big betayal.
I soon felt myself awakening, not understanding why I was having this strange dream. I just kept laying on the bed asking why I would have such a dream, when I could have had any other dream. Perhaps one much more positive is what I would have expected. Then I remembered talking to my son about the movie Ground Hog Day, and how we must repeat situations until we get our lesson. This begged the question. What was the lesson in this dream?
Then right away, my page for the day came to mind. It was the very page I had read the day before in my book 30 Days of Metaphysics, Miracles and Enlightenment in Your LIfe. This was the second book I wrote quite some years ago. It is a combination of sayings and parables I learned from my teacher, and my explanations of them. Everyday I look at a page and make that my message. So do many other people who I know. It’s the way the book was designed to be read and experienced. And as I said, the dream reminded me of my page I had read just the day before the unpleasant dream. Oh yeah, the page I got was titled “When Sexual Energy Is Aroused, It Has The Power Of 21 Buffalos.”
As I remembered my page I had an aha moment, where I laughed to myself as I thought about how my teacher would at times ask, “Have you ever tried to stop 21 buffalos?” I realized that in the dream this energy had definitely been aroused, atleast in my friend’s case for sure. In the book it also mentions how we must be careful of the situations we place ourselves and our family members in. As I thought this, I realized something interesting. I was no longer upset by the dream. I was enjoying figuring out the message. I felt like the world was magical once again. I now understood my friend in the dream, and I realized how in my dream I was not careful of the situations I placed my “dream wife” and “dream friend” in at the time. I also realized that in my world I must pay attention to such things more carefully, and never forget that we are all human. I could see it all so clealy.
At this point I felt honored that the Universe was talking to me through my dream. I felt connected on account of my page showing up in my dream to give me a message. I was reminded of how the lessons in my book seem to magically show up in the reader’s world. Many times people have told me this was the case in their lives when reading and applying their page in the book. And once again I knew I had to share the book and the message of how spiritually connected we all are with more people.
I also remembered what I shared with my son the evening before. When Phil in the movie Groundhog Day decided to lean into the lesson, his life became grand. He magically became unstuck and was able to move on to the next wonderful day on account of really loving where he was and getting into the present adventure. This was the same thing I was doing while analising my dream. While thinking about all of this I was reminded that this is what life is all about, enjoying the here and now, looking for and getting the lesson, and becoming who the Universe wants us bo be. I found myself looking forward to the next wonderful lesson in my life, knowing I am magically connected to it.
My teacher, Mr. Ambrister, would often speak on how his teacher, Dr. Thind, would be giving a talk in front of an auditorium of people. After sometime if you were really paying attention you could see that he was getting just a little tired. Then great meditation master would suddenly look off to the side for a second or two and be recharged with incredible energy and a magnificent light in his eyes totally recharged and continue his talk.
One day when Mr. Ambrister and I were having a conversation, after years of telling me the story many times, Mr. Ambrister shared with me that when Dr. Thind looked off for that quick second during his talk, that he actually went into a quick meditation and came back out.
The story always sounded like folklore or an unattainable state, until one day he suggested I did the same thing in an upcoming talk I had to give. I did try it when doing a talk for the Theosophical Society. To my surprise it worked! Just before giving my talk I took myself to a higher state, right before walking on stage, with this quick meditation just like my teacher suggested. I also did the same thing during my talk. Afterwards, over the years I would use this method and slip into my higher state in seconds to come back charged, especially in challenging situations when I felt like I was in over my head. The more we meditate the more we are able to do such things.
I am sitting here in my positive place. I know this for several reasons. It just dawned on me that I hear the inner sound roaring. The inner sound is the OM vibration. When I hear it, I feel so good. The great masters will tell you that you can hear the Universal vibration when you are in touch. I have found that you can hear it when you have somehow slipped into the eternal place. During such times, all worries have gone. The outside world is not as important, and all of the sudden there is a ringing or humming in the silence.
I am sitting here in my positive place. I know this for several reasons. While sitting here I can barely feel my body. It’s like the rest of the world has gone away. I was thinking about what it’s like being on the beam, while reading poetry and remembering beautiful times. And then, wow no more worries! I guess I got lost in the moment. What can I say. I litterally feel like I am floating as I sit on my wonderful couch.
I am sitting here in my postitve place. I know this for several reasons. I am reading, writing, reflecting, with no thoughts of accomplishing, not knocking accomplishing, but right now there are no concerns. I feel like there is no other place, yet I am at peace with all places. How can this be? I feel like I am one with the grass, one with the trees, one with the meadow, and all will be ok. There is no need to prove, no need to act, not in this moment, and it feels like forever. I am so alive, here in my thoughts, I can travel any place in my mind. I feel so good.
I am sitting here in my positive place, realizing that soon I will have to physically leave where I am and get up. My only thought is that I must take this place with me and carry it where ever I go. I must walk in peace. I must walk in love. I must take more time to sit in silence and know all is well.
