Miracles and magic

This past weekend my wife and I had the opportunity to attend Joe Vitale’s Miracle’s Weekend / The Awakening Seminar in San Diego, Ca.

Have you ever attended a seminar and shortly there after the notes you took sit somewhere and collect dust or the aha’s seem to just fade away. Every now and then some of the insights do stick around and remain part of your Life, part of the reason is because we make a conscious effort to hold onto and utilize those insights, and the other part of the reason is because those who are guiding us are expressing “Truth” that resonates within us.

Every single speaker during the seminar expressed “Truth” that resonated, every speaker received an ovation, every speaker motivated me to take notes of great insights, every speaker produced miracles, every speaker to a huge extent shared their gifts, strengths, and talents, it was just simply an amazing weekend of magic…

Because all of the above I even added my own frosting on the cake to the magic, I asked every speaker to be on my Ilumine Ao radio show, and with my intention to have them all on separate dates as co-hosts in November.

Here is the amazing lineup of speakers that Joe put together, and may I add that even the audience participation was at optimal levels.

Meir Schneider: Creating the Miracle of Healing Blindness and How to Self-Heal the Body
Mark Ryan: Awakening from the Trance of Limitation
Dr. Susan Shumsky: Demonstrating How to Live in Miracles
Wendi Friesen: Working with Trance to Affect Miraculous Healing
Mandy Evans: How to Accept the Current Miracle
Dr. Joe Vitale: The Missing Secret to Attracting Miracles: The Miracle Process

As my wife and I drove home we marveled with all of the inspiration we received and the insights that were given to guide us to remember.

The best part is that it was all for OUR best and highest good…

Ilumine Ao,

Are you the dream catcher of your dreams?

Within this blog all I can do is offer guidance and plant a seed the rest is up to you... I know we all have different ways of interpreting what is told to us, some we accept others we discard. But in the end we choose what we will do. The following article by Keith Varnum is powerful and insightful, it reminds me of The Titus Concept, perhaps it may open your eyes and Heart even more so.

The Secret of the Dream Catcher By Keith Varnum

A Dream Catcher is a hoop—a circle of life—on which is woven a web. Adorning the hoop are feathers, bones, crystals and other sacred items that represent your dreams. The web acts as a filter. Good dreams are captured in the web, sliding down the feathers and into your life. Nightmares pass through the web.

A Dream Catcher can be a unique wall hanging. A good luck charm. … Or an effective manifestation tool!

Using a Dream Catcher as a tool can bring you what you want in life.

The difference in the power of your Dream Catcher lies in knowing the secret.

The Secret

The secret of the Dream Catcher is like all profound spiritual truths—it’s not really a secret at all!

Metaphysical truth is truth that’s beyond (meta) physical. It’s hidden from sight—that is, hidden from ordinary physical sight. Not concealed deliberately, but effectively.

Hidden by what? By the perceptual filters of our social upbringing. Our cultural programming. The beliefs passed on to us through parents, schooling and mainstream media.

The Good News

The Good News is that since all spiritual truth is only truth hidden from ordinary view, all you have to do is change your ordinary point of view to find it!

If you alter your perspective on the journey of life, you can easily discover all the “secret” truths that will make your life happy, healthy and abundant. A change in your perspective changes your perception.

That is, if you vary what you’re looking for—and therefore, how or where you’re looking for it—you’re more likely to find it.

For example, if you’ve been told that the secret to life is out there somewhere, you’ll look out there for it. If you’ve been taught that the power you seek is in a thing, or another human being, or organization, or belief—you’ll be searching for it in an object, person, group or concept.

Switch Your Viewpoint

You may or may not have found what you are looking for. If you haven’t, try modifying the perspective of your search.

For example, if you switch your viewpoint to seeking the secret within yourself, you may quickly find the gold you’ve been longing for.

Where Is the Dream Catcher?

Where is the Dream Catcher? … in the hoop and string of the spider’s web you have woven? … or in the weaver?

Who (what) is the Dream Catcher? … is it the physical Dream Catcher … or the maker of the physical Dream Catcher?

You Are the Dream Catcher

You are the Dream Catcher! You are the One you have been waiting for. You are the One you’ve been searching for.

Yes, I know, you’ve heard this before. You’ve read it countless times. You totally believe it. I understand.

Go Beyond Just Believing

It’s one thing to believe this. Yet, it’s another to experience it.

This is where making a physical Dream Catcher enters in. This is where the “secret” of the true Dream Catcher comes to the rescue!

When you construct a traditional Native American Dream Catcher out of reed, yarn, leather and feathers, you’re actually only creating a physical representation of the metaphysical Dream Catcher—you!

Here’s the Magic
With the right conditions and attitude, the physical Dream Catcher becomes you-the-metaphysical Dream Catcher. The result is that all your dreams show up in your life … on earth … in this “Dimension of Manifestation.”

When you build a physical Dream Catcher with the viewpoint that you are revealing the actual Dream Catcher, you then experience becoming the powerful Catcher of Dreams that you truly are.

When you make a Dream Catcher with the perspective of uncovering the hidden power in the Universe, you discover the truth—you are the source of the power behind the holy object, behind the group leader, behind the trappings of tradition, behind the sacred belief. You are the Holy Grail!

Go for the Proof

It’s one thing to know this. It’s another to do it. It’s still another to create the personal direct evidence of the enormous creative power of being the Dream Catcher in a real and tangible, provable way.

What’s the proof of this approach? … the love, prosperity, health and peace you’ll attract immediately into your life!

When you realize (make real) that you are the true Dream Catcher, you can re-dream your financial life. Love life. Body. Age. Relationships. Livelihood. ... anything you want! Your life immediately changes in front of your eyes.

Don’t Take My Word for It

Make a Dream Catcher yourself. Make your self into a Dream Catcher!

Catch Your Dreams
Create your own unique Dream Catcher—a power object that will help you "catch" your dreams

It’s easy:

Make a hoop (circle of life) out of a flexible tree branch or thick vine. Weave string into a web (of life) within the hoop.

For pointers, watch a spider spin its web. Go on a Vision Quest outside to find natural objects that represent the dreams you intent to attract with your personal power. Weave these symbols into your dream-catching web with love, intention and appreciation. Viola! Within minutes or days, your heartful wishes will come to you.

Dream, design and construct your Dream Catcher with the intention of "catching" what you really want in your life.

As you catch “Bright Energies”—love, health, happiness, peace, joy, wealth—you'll weave these Energies into your personal Dream Catcher ... and your everyday life.

Each person’s Dream Catcher will be unique to each person's unique desires and intentions.

Native Magic

In Native American lore, the spirit medicine of the spider is to remind us that we are the source of our life adventures. The spider’s message is that we are the weavers of our own web of life experiences. We are the creator of our own reality—the authors of our own karma.

If we want to change the life experiences that we’re attracting, we need to change the web of thoughts, feelings and actions that we’re sending out into our world. By the Law of Attraction, the vibration at which we’re vibrating will attract people and events vibrating at that same vibrational frequency. This is the magic of you being the Dream Catcher.

Heaven Is a Here&Now Vibration
The vibration of your Dream Catcher creates the reality of your dreams. The energy you’re in when you make the Dream Catcher attracts your dreams into manifestation.

Catch a Native American
Catch a Native American (or a student of one) to show you how to create the physical and metaphysical Dream Catcher. … Or catch the knack from your own Higher Knowing!

Learn how to weave a web that brings all your heart’s desires—and catches your life purpose and passion.

Catch Up with Your Destiny!
Grab an opportunity. Release the patterns that attract people and situations you don't prefer.
Catch a Glimpse!

Catch a glimpse of how bountiful your life can be! Seize the day. Catch true love, a heartful livelihood, lasting health and wealth.
Catch a Ride!

Catch a ride on your own Magical Mystery Tour! Discover the revitalizing force of "Bright Energies."

Catch Your Youth!

Grab another chance. Seize the moment. Feel, look and be young and vital again.

Catch the Past!

You’ve lived here many times. Retrieve the value from those lifetimes … the wisdom, clarity, hints, tools, discoveries. awareness, learning, knowing. Mine the treasures of your past to update your awareness, learning and knowing in this lifetime.

Catch Your Future!

You're the one who creates your dreams coming true. It's your energy! The vibration that you generate from inside yourself. Your energy is a magnet. The high quality of energy you're putting out attracts quality people, situations and a physical experience to match.

Catch the dreams that will make your heart and soul soar. Dream Catching is playful, practical and powerful! It works!

Weave a New Web of Joy
Spiders build new webs at dawn to catch the dew that catches the early morning sunlight.

You build a Dream Catcher at the dawn of your new awareness to catch the Spirit that catches the “Bright Energies” of joy, compassion, peace, delight, innocence and passion.

As with the spider’s web, your Dream Catcher captures the Bright Energies of life and filters out the Dark Energies of doom and gloom.

As the first rays of sunlight hit the dew in the web, the “bad” dreams dissolve. As the first rays of Your True Spirit hit the Bright Energies of your Dream Catcher, the nightmares of life dissolve.

Make a Dream Catcher

This Manifestation Magnet will remind you how to continue to Catch Your Dreams! Use this ancient tool of transformation. Live your life to the fullest. Share your beauty, compassion and inner talents to transforms the world.
As the Song Goes…

Catch a falling star (light, a piece of heaven)
Put it in your pocket (embody it, become it)
Never ever let it fade away (don’t allow it to diminish)
For love may come an' tap you on the shoulder
Some star-less night!
Just in case you feel you wanna’ hold her (the joy)
You’ll have a pocketful of starlight!

For our best and highest good all ways... In every moment.

Ilumine Ao,

About the economy and guidance

The following article by Doreen Virtue discusses the guidance she received from her angels in regards to the economy. There are some great insights she is sharing, but what is also important and of value is that we can also receive guidance other than from what we see and hear in our external reality. I am aware of this guidance as my mom who transitioned this past April supports me every single day.

Ilumine Ao,
Al Diaz

The Angels on the Economy by Doreen Virtue

Economic conditions are more affected by human beliefs and expectations, than by oil prices or political concerns. This is true for you personally, as well as for everyone globally. Your personal finances are greatly influenced by your expectations and emotions, so it’s doubly important to keep your thoughts and feelings at as high a level as possible.

The angels advise:
Avoid any thoughts or discussions about blaming politicians, countries, or anyone else for your personal or the global economy. Placing blame upon others puts you in a victim role, energetically. This lowers your energies, and has you attract more experiences of victimization.

If you are around someone (including a media report) who is making negative statements about money or the economy, silently (or aloud if the person is open-minded) say: “Cancel, Clear, Delete” or “In spiritual truth, we are all perfectly and abundantly supported. I now open my arms to receive and share plentifully.”

Engage in activities that make you happy! Please don’t scrimp on hobbies or trips, but instead look at them as investments in your happiness, which is the most important influence in your personal economic conditions. When you are happy, you automatically attract and create new opportunities. Your happiness also lifts up the energies of those around you.

Affirm frequently: “God is omnipresent love, wisdom, and creativity. I am forever one with God’s grace and love. I am completely supported in all ways by the love of God. I follow my Divine guidance along pathways of giving of selfless service, and receiving the support that God offers to everyone.”

Keep your thoughts about other people’s finances at a very high level. Frequently affirm that we are all richly abundant in all ways. Avoid any pity thoughts about anyone, but do give donations and support as you are guided.

Don’t worry about HOW your finances will be supported or resolved. Remember that God’s creativity, wisdom, and love is boundless. Your prayers will be answered in surprising, miraculous, and unexpected ways.

Whenever you get a strong intuitive lead to do something positive, follow it without delay! Remember that God frequently answers your prayers by giving you strong and repetitive messages to take action. These messages may come to you as an emotional or physical feeling; an idea or inspiration; a vision or dream; or words that you hear. As you follow this guidance, you co-create the answer to your prayers.

The angels say that we are already collectively seeing economic improvements which will continue into October and November. You can see and experience these improvements for yourself with faith, hope, and trust. Pray for more faith, and it is always given – I especially recommend praying for increased faith, hope, and trust as you’re falling asleep – you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel when you wake up in the morning.

I am praying on your behalf, as well.

For our best and highest good all ways... In every moment.

Loving every aspect of your Self unconditionally

There was a time when I only concentrated being on the spiritual path, because I thought then that there would be more peace and joy in my Life. To some degree that did occur... But in the overall scheme of Life I was leaving other aspects of my Life out of the equation and realized that all areas and levels of my Life are just as equally important. Read this excellent and insightful article by Shakti Gawain, it addresses Loving your Self unconditionally in every area and every level.

Judgment Is As Judgment Does
by Shakti Gawain

It has been tremendously helpful for me to understand the difference between consciousness and spirituality. Spirituality is one type of energy — the energy that links us to our deepest essential nature and to the universal source. Consciousness is the awareness of all of the energies within us. Thus, it is quite possible to follow a spiritual path that is not necessarily a consciousness path. That is, we could work on developing the spiritual dimension of our being, without necessarily developing the other aspects. We can become spiritually developed and totally identified with our "spiritual self". In this case, we would usually disown many other energies, especially the physical and emotional ones. That's why we see so many people who are very highly attuned spiritually, but may be completely out of balance in their physical and emotional lives.

Consciousness, on the other hand, involves developing and integrating all the many aspects of our being, including, but not limited to, the spiritual.

The path of transcendence is a spiritual path, while the path of transformation is a consciousness path. Contacting and developing our spiritual nature is an important part of the consciousness journey, but there are many other important parts as well. The path of transformation involves a powerful commitment to every level of growth.

One of my concerns about the New Age movement is its focus on transcendence rather than transformation. Many are hoping that by developing spiritually, they can rise above their problems and not have to face the challenge of integrating their spiritual and human natures. They feel comfortable and safe exploring the spiritual and mental realms, but hope to avoid the more painful or difficult emotional healing work. Of course, it is a perfectly legitimate option to choose a transcendent path, but it will not bring about profound healing and wholeness for the individual or for the world. And ironically, the peace of mind that so many people seek on the transcendent path cannot be fully achieved by focusing exclusively on that reality.

Feel The Feeling

In New Age circles there is much talk about unconditional love. Many teachers urge their followers to practice forgiveness, be non-judgmental, and love fully without conditions, and many sincere seekers are earnestly trying to follow these teachings. I have a problem with the way these ideas are often presented. Of course, judgments are unpleasant, separating, and uncomfortable for all concerned. Forgiveness is a powerful and healing force for both the giver and the recipient. And there's nothing more blissful than giving and/or receiving unconditional love. However, there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about these processes, and much of what is being taught is coming from the transcendent rather than the transformative approach.

Again, we must recognize the difference between our spiritual essence and human personality. As spiritual beings, we are always at one with universal love, which is always unconditional and non-judgmental. The personality, however, has the goal of learning to live in the physical world and get our emotional needs met. On the personality level, we are fundamentally concerned with protecting and caring for the vulnerable child within us; our feelings of love are entwined with our needs for safety, trust, and intimacy. We have powerful defense mechanisms in our personalities that can close off our feelings of love when we don't feel safe.

Rather than denying or trying to suppress these feelings and reactions, we need to respect and appreciate the function of our human personality. It is not by nature unconditionally loving. Much healing can take place when we recognize this as a given and are able to honor both our spiritual and our human nature.

When we feel judgmental, rather than denying those feelings, we need to look deeply into them to discover what is triggering them. Usually, we feel judgmental when we are frustrated because we have not followed our own truth in some way, or because we are having to confront another person who is reflecting one of our disowned selves back to us. So, instead of simply blocking ourselves from experiencing our judgmental feelings, we need to be attentive to the fact that our judgments can provide us with clues for what we need to look at in ourselves; ultimately, they are healing gifts. If we try to suppress or ignore the feelings, we miss the opportunity for learning and consciousness. Condemning ourselves for being judgmental is simply judging ourselves for being judgmental!

Obtaining Knowledge

What stops people from embarking on the transformational path? For many, it is simply a lack of knowledge. They aren't aware that such an opportunity exists, or perhaps they aren't sure how to go about finding it. Lack of knowledge is not the only roadblock on the consciousness path. Another one is fear. We all fear the unknown, of course, and this particular journey certainly is unpredictable in many ways. That's why it is so important to cultivate a personal relationship with our inner guidance. Unless we feel some sense of a higher force working with us, it is simply too frightening to leave our familiar territory.

Many people are afraid of emotional healing work. There are so many misunderstandings and stereotypes about psychotherapy. Unfortunately, there are also many less than adequate or downright harmful therapists and healers, and many people who have had negative, disappointing or downright traumatic experiences with them. So it is extremely important to choose your helpers wisely and carefully.

I have found that most people are afraid that if they begin exploring deep feelings, they will get stuck there and never emerge. When feelings have been repressed and disowned, they feel very intense and powerful, and it is easy to feel that they might overwhelm us forever if we ever give them the opportunity.

However, the facts are quite different. If we move into our healing process at our own pace, without pushing ourselves and with the right support, it is not nearly as difficult as we might fear. Each of us has an internal mechanism that guides the pace of our journey. Once we allow ourselves to experience an emotion freely, we discover that rather than washing us away, the wave of feeling gradually subsides and leaves us with a deep sense of wonderful peace.

Tap Into Love

The key to unconditional love is found in the love our spirit has for our personality. When we can tap into spirit, we can unconditionally love ourselves — including the parts of us that are angry, judgmental, needy, and selfish. Then we naturally feel compassion and acceptance toward others as well. We recognize in them the same human attributes that we have learned to love in ourselves. By loving and honoring our own personality in this way, we gain clear vision about other people's development on the personality level. We can maintain appropriate boundaries, making wise choices about who it's appropriate to get close to. At the same time, through our connection with our own divine essence, we naturally recognize and acknowledge the spiritual being in everyone else, even those with whom we know we must maintain some distance.

Remember that it doesn't really work to try to feel love, or any other feeling. Our feelings are not controlled by our will, and most attempts to assert this kind of power over them leads to denial, repression, and disowning parts of ourselves, or to an expression of feeling that is not authentic.
By acknowledging and honoring any feeling — no matter how "unacceptable" we might have previously judged it to be — we create space for its opposite. So trying to love unconditionally is a contradiction. Unconditional love is some thing that arises naturally when we can accept all our feelings and love all parts of us, including the parts that aren't unconditionally loving.

For our best and highest good all ways... In every moment.
