Reality creation gone wild

Has anyone else here wished for something and then not only got it, but much more than expected, an almost embarrassing amount of results? A simple example: hoping for a piece of art by a certain artist, and not having a snowball's chance of hell of ever getting it, and then suddenly something changes and you get almost the entire collection? I've had this happen a few times, an "against all odds" creation both with material and non-material things, and I don't know whether it's just a "coincidence" (I know), my imagination, or true reality creation on steroids. I keep thinking of Ron Weasley's unpredictable broken magic wand. :)

I can share a few stories, but I'd love to know about yours.

Deb, I wish.  I have never had an experience like that, or at least haven't had one that I can remember.

I'd like for that to happen with lottery winnings.  Then I could be out of this place and onto the next big thing.  I'd love love love (love) that!

I don't know how I create some things well, and some things not at all. I don't consciously do all the visualizations and expectation that LoA people recommend. Another simple example: When I was working on Rich Kendall's final book, Potpourri, he sent me all of his "doodle" drawings so I could scan them. I became charmed by them and his little stories and anecdotes he paired with the art. At one point we talked about selling the doodles, then decided not to. I was going to ask him if I could buy a couple of my favorites from him, but then he suddenly (and I mean suddenly) died. I ended up with all 75 of the doodles. Later, I was in touch with his brother (who also was into Seth, but not as much as Rich) and he said I should keep them all. IDK, maybe I'm just lucky.

I wouldn't mind winning the lottery either. You gave me an idea: I should start buying tickets and see what happens. Maybe it's all about emotion—you seem to be on track. It's all about the love, to quote MJ. Hold onto that feeling.  ;D

I've been playing the lottery since the early 90s.  I'm terrified of how much money I've flushed down the toilet over the years. ;D  At least some of it goes to good causes, like the school system.

If I ever won the big jackpot, I'd keep what I needed to retire now and live comfortably, and I'd donate the rest.  My wife and I have no children to pass anything on to.  I'd just want a modest house somewhere else, and enough money to live well.  I don't need millions of dollars.  I wouldn't even know what to do with that.  Maybe I'd set up scholarships and make sure that the humane society down the street is well funded.  There are so many opportunities to do good with that kind of money.

You mentioned a few times that you moved to Colorado and regretted it. I'm so sorry about that, a very uncomfortable place to be. I moved here in '83 and then back again in '86 after a brief stint in San Diego, yet still it's all been good for me. I MAY end up moving to Florida this fall, only because I still miss FL and am tired of the snow and long Colorado winters. And CO has become so overcrowded since I first moved here. But I'm also open to staying in CO and working out another way to deal with the things that don't suit me.

I can say the times I've been over the top successful with creation has been when I'd focused the joys of where I saw myself in the future, rather than what was wrong with where I was. But I'm no expert. Just trying to help, and get a handle on this creation thing.

It's interesting.  Where I live in CO, the winters are pretty tame.  Certainly tamer than I'm used to, when compared to other places I've lived.  But everyone has their own idea of what makes a bad winter.

I was an idiot.  It's always been my dream to live here.  I didn't realize that it would be so loud, crowded, full of traffic and polluted.  This is by far the most polluted area that I've ever lived in.  Of course my dream comes from when I was a kid, and things were a lot different back then.  Perhaps things would be better in the mountains.  I don't know at this point.  I do know that the front range is not where I want to be.

I found this quote last night when reading TES 1.

These experiences and others that you both will have cannot be willed. Use of the ego along that line will hold back such progress.

There is a feeling with which Ruburt is all too familiar which is important here. Before one of our regular sessions as you know Ruburt often becomes nervous. I have mentioned that the sensation is something akin to the feeling of an inexperienced diver standing upon a high board. The best way is just to let go and dive.

Roberts, Jane. The Early Sessions: Book 1 of The Seth Material (p. 366). New Awareness Network, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

In this passage, Seth is referring to Jane's and Rob's use of the inner senses.  Yet I found that this can really apply to other things and I specifically thought of this thread.  All of the Law of Attraction books that I've read say that you should go into it assuming that you already have it.  I've always struggled with that because I'm not great at visualization and pretending that something is there when it isn't.  Perhaps the key to this is, like Seth says above, to not let the ego and will stand in the way of it.  Maybe that's where faith in the process comes in.  Maybe it's a process that does not involve the ego at all and trying to involve it is what keeps it from happening.

I'm probably doing a poor job of explaining my thinking.  I'm still working through this idea that's bouncing around in my head.

usmaak, thanks for the quote. What Seth seems to be saying is that the ego cannot create reality. It is only the Inner Self which can do that.

It's always been my dream to live here.  I didn't realize that it would be so loud, crowded, full of traffic and polluted.

Well it wasn't like that when I moved here, although I worked in downtown Denver, which was a real cow town at the time and still polluted, famous for it's Brown Cloud. I remember getting nose bleeds from the pollution and dry air when I'd walk to the office.

It got really crowded in Colorado when people were streaming in from California because of their high real estate. They could sell their CA bungalow and buy a giant house here. Then weed was legalized and an entirely different crowd flocked to the state—the homeless, mentally ill, people addicted to various substances. And then since covid restrictions were lifted, in just the past few months, suddenly it felt the population doubled.

Maybe since you both are comfortable keeping to yourselves, moving to the mountains would be a good solution. There are plenty of areas in small towns that would be affordable because they're more rural and not touristy. West on 285, or I-70. There was a time when I wanted to build a cabin in Crestone, a quiet and spiritual area (not religion). And lots of interesting areas in the southwest San Juans—Ouray, Telluride, places like that. Explore!

Deb, this makes me very nostalgic, all these places I've visited, even meeting a guy in Crestone who was building a cabin. I lived in the Pikes Peak region for many years, mostly up in the mountains, and in Cripple Creek for five years. Truly a dream come true for me, but I eventually came back to Michigan, where I feel more at home, much more so than I ever felt in the South (FL, TN, GA, SC) which I left at age 30. But each of my later moves, from SC to Michigan in '82, to Colorado in '92, and back to MI in '05, felt like a major dream come true, sort of inevitable, something drawing me to the place. So I've felt pretty fortunate in that way, but it was always like a clear choice at the time, a window of opportunity.

I've been around a bit myself. The only place I wouldn't move back to is where I started out: New Jersey. It's a good place to be "from." I wonder if we've ever crossed paths?

I have a friend who has a cabin in Empire, just before you get to Georgetown, that's on 4 acres across from the Georgetown cemetery. It was built by her grandfather in the mid 1800s during the silver boom. Lots of history there, I actually produced a book about it for her and her family. I could see myself living there, despite the fact that it snows every time I've stayed there, regardless of the time of year. :)

I see this where I live.  Homeless on every corner, asking for money.  Shelters springing up all over town, some taking advantage of them and some ignoring them.  My hood has a private gazebo for residents only and homeless routinely set up sleeping bags or whatever and sleep there.  In my seven years living here, it's turned into a major thing.  I don't know if the town chooses not to address the problem or if they are somehow powerless to do it.  I've noticed more and more homes going up for sale just in my hood.  Sometimes it seems like half of the city is selling.  And every single postage stamp sized parcel of land is being bought up for multi-story apartments.  They are putting an 85 unit multi-story affordable housing complex on an old football field that is less than 1/4 of a mile from my house.  I have a major east/west road running by my house and traffic is about to get much worse in the next six months, as they complete it.  This town/city is becoming the definition of urban sprawl.

That's closer to the dream that I had for living in this state.  If it were just me, I'd have already called this a failed experiment and moved back to where I come from.  But my wife likes it here and that sort of puts us at an impasse.  Perhaps I am too damned picky about where I live and maybe it would be best to focus more on that for which I can be grateful and less on that which I find annoying.  I do tend to focus on the negative.  It's a habit I've been trying to break for years.  But at what point is it a negative habit and when is it being honest with how I feel?  I've gotten in the habit of questioning every negative thought that I have and then dismissing it as there being something wrong with me.

I live in an area that's shielded from that to a large degree, a planned development from a California developer (Mission Viejo). I swore I'd never live here, it was too cookie cutter, and then had a kid and it suddenly became more attractive. I've not regretted it. The homeless don't venture too deeply into this area, because there are really no services or encampments available for them, and not much public transportation. However, there are occasional Romanian gypsies on some corners. Easy to spot.

I also kind of keep to myself most of the time, so I live happily in my own world. I just threw in the towel this past winter trying to garden in an increasingly garden-hostile environment. We do get 1.5 times the amount of snow that other Denver areas get. I'm so tired of shoveling snow from September to sometimes May, and running out of places to put it.

There's a line between being too picky and being honest and realistic. I remember once seeing a Mary Engelbreit meme that said "Bloom where you're planted." I thought that was a great sentiment, but I'm also not sure it always works. How can it? Well, the person who can do that without fail is SPECIAL.

How about we all get together once we get back to Colorado in August? And woops, I may have talked myself into staying in Colorado thanks to Kyle.  ::) You and your wife can experience the ultimate bedroom community and our own private oasis. Minus the tents, trash, and lack of sanitation. :)

Hi dear Deb and All,
Deb, your example with paintings looks like the case of "order placed with the Universe" and then following the flow/forgetting about it, whatever you want to call it. And with experience in "reality creation", examples become more and more mind-blowing. And we get used to magically catching planes and finding just the right houses. (Well, I get used. But this is a game I am never tired of playing. And I want grander and grander magic. As if saying to the Universe, "ok, you can swing my husband's successful cancer treatment and operation, my blog going live and my creations in the hands of dozens people, I want to go to the next level".
Deb, since you are asking about examples, here are 2 of my most favorite.
1) There was a boxing place underneath our rental apartment in Bayonne NJ. They started at 4 pm and went at it until 9 pm.  As someone who loves quiet, I was upset beyond words. Yet, I was "working" on it. So maybe this is a story for a wrong post. But anyway, the bottom-line is the reality creation worked. During racket, I imagined silence every time and visualized the gym moving to another place and prospering there. And it did - to my great surprise. When we came back from 2012 vacation (and we moved in March 2011), there was a note on their door saying they moved up the street. Now they have a larger place and it is in a building with no apartments.

2) The second favorite is my trip to my parents in Ukraine in 2019. All my friends (who know my husband's character) kept saying "you'll never be able to go alone". I visualized being in my home city for over a year before going to bed every day. And the trip became a reality.
I spent 4 days with my dear cousin in a cozy airbnb and then my husband joined me. I saw all my dear friends, family, and on the whole - the trip was very enjoyable.

With projects that seem difficult to swing by I always use the approach suggested by Zeland, a Russian speaking author. Since everything is possible and everything is like ordering things from a catalogue, he suggests to learn to feel the confidence you feel when you "go to the newsstand to get a newspaper". There is absolutely no doubt in you in this case.

Marianna, thank you for your contributions! I remember the story about the boxing studio and thought that was an amazing creation. The story of your trip home to the Ukraine was just as wonderful.

I love how "we" all are privy to the concept that we create our reality. The uninitiated to Seth (or Vadim, or others) think they are victims of circumstance and so have no idea they have the power to effect change in their own lives. Knowing that's possible, we at least have a fighting chance to create lives that serve us better.

I love Vadim's comment about having the confidence of expectation of something so simple. Reality creation does not have to be complicated.

My favorite personal examples are both described in the synchronicity thread. One is when a high-end vacuum cleaner appeared at the exact time in my life that I most desperately needed one. The other was when I had intended to get some gift books autographed, finally gave up, and while leaving work with them, passed a temp who noticed them and said that she knew the author when she lived on the other side of the country, and he was coming over for dinner that night - and would I like her to take the books to him to autograph?

That could just be my favorite thread here. I've had several instances where I've been amazed at how well things turned out for me—beyond my hopes. While I'd prefer that I was more consistent and reliable with my creations, I'm still very grateful for the feedback. I guess we all need to learn how to walk before we can run.  :)

I can share a few stories, but I'd love to know about yours.


13 years ago wrote up a great list of what i really wanted in a partner. went on a vacation to mongolia. i hired a driver a guide and a cook from a local tour operator in the far west of the country. landed on a dirt runway, that kind of thing. :) way too many synchronous events happened before leaving, while there, and after. it was surreal. i fell in love with my guide. she fell in love with me. we've been married 12 years so far. and the list? she obliterated it. haahahahahahaha - hit every single item on it, and things i never knew i wanted, or was missing. just crazy. i was just talking with her today about it, and that is maybe one of the single biggest touchstones i use - to remind myself that i'm creating everything, that All That Is has our backs, and i/we truly truly truly truly live in a safe universe.

as for the lottery, a couple years ago we hit 5 numbers out of six on the state lottery. not a lot of money, but it was fun. i have been regularly 'working' on winning it using seth's concepts, and i have been gunning for a whole hell of a lot more. and i'm expecting it. completely. actually, more and more every day as i work though my own crap. it's actually kind of fun... :)

i have so many smaller things that regularly happen that it also, is just plain fun - and wild. i also have doubts, fears, and i attack myself a lot... for whatever the hell reasons. that's my crap that i'm learning to release. all part of the plan of learning how to manipulate energy, huh? the reason we're here.

okay, slight mini rant (positive) about lynda dahl, and the way i'm now approaching creating...

i have to say, after hearing about them here, i just finished reading lynda dahl's four "living a safe universe" books. brilliant, i think. i've read all the seth books except the early class sessions, and to me it's hard holding all the concepts in one brain (mine) at one time. she has this great way of pulling things back to the core concepts i feel.

and the approach she has of simply remembering we live in a safe universe, and also living/creating from the moment point - are brilliantly simple and powerful. not her ideas, per se, but her focus on them as her distillation of the seth matterial.

i'm following those right now and things feel somehow, more simple for me. just a few things to keep focused on. actually, places to keep MY focus. on the fact that i live in a safe universe, and i can only ever ever ever ever create from right now. so i better, triple-better, know what the hell i'm focusing on right now. and if it's crap, change it. because whatever i focus on, is gonna be what comes up next for me.

again, my $0.02. rant's over. :)))

Yes.  She has an amazing grasp of the material and does a fantastic job of teaching it in an easy to understand manner.

This is a great thread. Anyway this is my experience of asking and getting more than you asked for.
There was a girl I sort of knew in the next town. I had to go there for some reason I can't recall now but I wondered would I bump into her. I thought, I know I'll use LoA and focused really hard on her and on meeting her and then 'knew' that this reality had already occurred. This was at the worst c19 restrictions but before masks were enforced and while in the town I thought I better get some supplies so I went into the supermarket filled a trolley and then queued for the checkout. A shop assistant was at the head of the queue directing people into the checkout lanes. Anyway it was my turn in the queue and there were about 8 checkouts and stationed on one was the girl (I had no idea she worked there) and sure enough the assistant directed me to her till out of all the others. 'Ok' I was thinking this was a bit like a dream now. We chatted while she scanned my stuff and I packed. Anyway I left and was sort of kicking myself that I hadn't come up with some excuse to see her again but something hadn't clicked I guess. So a couple of weeks went by and I went back to the town and to the store and again she was working and again I got directed to her till! This time it was more awkward, like the universe was pressing us together but we wouldn't stick. I made too many jokes and got out of there knowing that we weren't meant for each other.

I've tried to use LoA on money too and although it has gone up somewhat my workload has gone up even more. So definitely a case of be careful what you wish for lol.

Now I ask my intuition is this really what you want before I do any imagining exercises.

I think Deb in your case something is going on with you in framework two in that you are asking people for stuff there and they are saying sure why not ;)

Ahh, relationships.  I've been through this type of thing as well.  Desperately wanted to go out with someone and the universe conspires to put it together and it happens.  Yet something doesn't click and it just doesn't feel correct.  Try to force it for a time, but in the end, IT JUST DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT!!  Of course at the time, when I was much younger, I didn't understand that.  It was only as I got older that I saw it for what it was - not meant to be.

There are lots of things that I want that I don't get.  But if I sit back and think about them and, perhaps, journal/stream of consciousness about them, I can almost always find holes in my wanting that show why I don't get what I think I want.  I always had that common fantasy about being stupid rich and try as I might, I haven't gotten there.  Only recently did I realize that I'm happy with where I am in life and what I have.  I am not really high maintenance in that I don't need a lot of things to be happy.  Even if I suddenly had a bunch of money, I wouldn't really know what to do with it because I don't really want anything else.  I'd probably end up donating it and making other people's lives better.

Michael, that's a great story. Thanks. May I ask, were you a Seth reader before you went to Mongolia?

hi Sena, yes - i think i had been reading it about 5-7 years at that point. mostly looking at my beliefs and trying to pull those apart, find the ones i was using to hurt myself, and trying to change them as best i could.

at the time i really didn't think that a large part of my life had changed that much, except of course for the magic of the whole mongolia thing. or rather - i was so focused on how much of my life that i still wanted to change - and wanting to get it all done in maybe... three days :) - that i wasn't realizing just how much the material really was changing me.

looking back, i can see in my life exactly when i started reading the material - like a graph, i could see the line of my life definitely start to rise. a definite upward bend to the line. then when i started meditating, another ratchet up of the line (in the past 3 years). and now, with the dahl books, i feel like i'm entering yet another place where the line is taking a big jump up in pitch.

all i'm asking for in my life is hyperbolic. hahahahahahaha...

Deb, I wish.  I have never had an experience like that, or at least haven't had one that I can remember.

I'd like for that to happen with lottery winnings.  Then I could be out of this place and onto the next big thing.  I'd love love love (love) that!

Okay !

SOOOOOOOooooooooo

What do you want the money for?

To run away?
To move?
To have steady food and income?
What?

IMAGINE what you would feel like if you ALREADY HAD what you want
And bring witnesses with you...friends ...family....all congratulating you on your new home, new life, new start.....bring a minimum of two people!

Sometimes though if we are REALLY desiring of a thing it just boom! Happens! Like the candy I just mentioned.

🙂🙂🙂🙂

You got this!

I wouldn't mind winning the lottery either. You gave me an idea: I should start buying tickets and see what happens. Maybe it's all about emotion—you seem to be on track. It's all about the love, to quote MJ. Hold onto that feeling.
I've been playing the lottery since the early 90s.  I'm terrified of how much money I've flushed down the toilet over the years. ;D  At least some of it goes to good causes, like the school system.

If I ever won the big jackpot, I'd keep what I needed to retire now and live comfortably, and I'd donate the rest.  My wife and I have no children to pass anything on to.  I'd just want a modest house somewhere else, and enough money to live well.  I don't need millions of dollars.  I wouldn't even know what to do with that.  Maybe I'd set up scholarships and make sure that the humane society down the street is well funded.  There are so many opportunities to do good with that kind of money.

Quote from: Deb
Has anyone else here wished for something and then not only got it, but much more than expected, an almost embarrassing amount of results?
Hi dear Deb and All,
Deb, your example with paintings looks like the case of "order placed with the Universe" and then following the flow/forgetting about it, whatever you want to call it. And with experience in "reality creation", examples become more and more mind-blowing. And we get used to magically catching planes and finding just the right houses. (Well, I get used. But this is a game I am never tired of playing. And I want grander and grander magic. As if saying to the Universe, "ok, you can swing my husband's successful cancer treatment and operation, my blog going live and my creations in the hands of dozens people, I want to go to the next level".
Deb, since you are asking about examples, here are 2 of my most favorite.
1) There was a boxing place underneath our rental apartment in Bayonne NJ. They started at 4 pm and went at it until 9 pm.  As someone who loves quiet, I was upset beyond words. Yet, I was "working" on it. So maybe this is a story for a wrong post. But anyway, the bottom-line is the reality creation worked. During racket, I imagined silence every time and visualized the gym moving to another place and prospering there. And it did - to my great surprise. When we came back from 2012 vacation (and we moved in March 2011), there was a note on their door saying they moved up the street. Now they have a larger place and it is in a building with no apartments.

2) The second favorite is my trip to my parents in Ukraine in 2019. All my friends (who know my husband's character) kept saying "you'll never be able to go alone". I visualized being in my home city for over a year before going to bed every day. And the trip became a reality.
I spent 4 days with my dear cousin in a cozy airbnb and then my husband joined me. I saw all my dear friends, family, and on the whole - the trip was very enjoyable.

With projects that seem difficult to swing by I always use the approach suggested by Zeland, a Russian speaking author. Since everything is possible and everything is like ordering things from a catalogue, he suggests to learn to feel the confidence you feel when you "go to the newsstand to get a newspaper". There is absolutely no doubt in you in this case.


EXACTLY! All of that! 👍🏻❤️

Somewhere in the Seth material it discusses that your Entity (Inner True and Faithful Self), will not allow certain things to be created. Your Inner Self is moving you in directions that benefit you. We do not always "see" or "hear" so we practice and practice.

🙃

Have a private discussion with your heart and also ask for a dream to help you understand. Keep at it if you arent having the dream. It WILL come.

My guess is that you will be surprised by the answer and it will make complete sense!

What do you want the money for?

To run away?
To move?
To have steady food and income?
What?
Good questions!

Quote from: michaelk
13 years ago wrote up a great list of what i really wanted in a partner.

Michaelk your entire post was amazing. Thanks for sharing and congratulations to you both! I don't know if your wife was a local in Mongolia (a fascinating place, BTW). My feeling is that we have more than one opportunity to meet someone with whom we are meant to be. We may live a great distance apart, travel in different circles, but manage to cross paths enough times and in different places to finally connect. I've had that happen a couple of times and it's really enjoyable to look back at the history trail of crossed paths. In reality, opportunity does NOT only knock once, if something is meant to be. And I don't mean "fate" in the traditional sense, I'm coming from a Seth perspective.

BTW I love Lynda Dahl. I just recently started listening to the Seth Speaks book from Audible. I'd read it so long ago, and at the time not so familiar with the Seth materials, that it is like reading it for the first time. What struck me is that while Seth was thorough in explaining the way things are, he did not always give examples for what he was explaining. That's where Lynda shines. She will say what Seth said, and then provide true life examples to make it even clearer.

Quote from: Bora137
This time it was more awkward, like the universe was pressing us together but we wouldn't stick. I made too many jokes and got out of there knowing that we weren't meant for each other.

I've tried to use LoA on money too and although it has gone up somewhat my workload has gone up even more. So definitely a case of be careful what you wish for lol.

Now I ask my intuition is this really what you want before I do any imagining exercises.

Bora137, I loved your story  too. And yes, be careful what you wish for. Or at least be clear about what you're asking for. ;) The increase in work load is a material world expectation of how to get more money.

Quote from: usmaak
I can almost always find holes in my wanting that show why I don't get what I think I want.  I always had that common fantasy about being stupid rich and try as I might, I haven't gotten there.  Only recently did I realize that I'm happy with where I am in life and what I have.  I am not really high maintenance in that I don't need a lot of things to be happy.  Even if I suddenly had a bunch of money, I wouldn't really know what to do with it because I don't really want anything else.  I'd probably end up donating it and making other people's lives better.

Well there you go, the reason you're not stupid rich... you're wise and contented. But it would be fun to try out rich. While I was out of town I was involved in a job where I got to visit homes of three very wealthy couples. Such as one of the couples lives in the Ritz Carlton, another had an entire floor in a very nice high-rise overlooking the bay and gulf. All three couples were extremely nice, welcoming, and despite the high price tags on their dwellings, did not appear extreme in their taste or decor. Just regular people, with very valuable art collections. It was an awesome experience. Being that rich may not make people instantly happy, but it sure does give more freedom of choice.

I've played the lottery every week for at least 20 years and I still continue to do so.  You know, just in case...  I've been playing the same numbers since the 80s and I just KNOW that the week that I don't play will be the week that my numbers pop up. 
Some times I get annoyed at how much money I spend on it.  I look at it this way.  Even if I never win, I'm contributing to whatever good the money does for the state.  And I'm also contributing to whoever does manage to win.

thanks, Deb - have you been to Mongolia? amazing country. and yes, she's a local. :) it was hilarious, when i left after 2 weeks on the first trip i remember thinking i have to see if this is what i think it is. of course living almost 10,000 miles apart made that a bit interesting. our second "date" was hong kong 6 months later. hahahahahahaha...

yes, the lynda's real world examples were great and her focus on the practical application of the material is what - i was exactly looking for. just awesome.

Very cool. I have not been to Mongolia, but my husband conducts international photo tours and has been there twice, has another group trip planned for early next year. I've seen photos, it's beautiful, colorful and very unique in its culture. Very diverse landscape too. I'd love to see it some day.

i hope you're able to - no fences. it's just like I'd imagine the Wild West was... but with yaks and camels. :)

if you or your husband need any recommendations for places in the west let me know. like I said, my wife was a guide there.

we went to this one valley in the far west, tucked up near the Chinese border. it was summer, the wildflowers were like something out of... well, the wilderness. plus a waterfall, and a river semi-thundering in places. a mama yak charged us as I was singing frank Sinatra to it to calm it down. not sure if it was me, or frank, but we got away by the skin of our teeth. just magic.

but then some other people showed up (Mongolians) with a Christina Aguilera CD blasting from their vehicle. was kind of funny. but also - that's Mongolia.

can't recommend the place enough. if you like an adventure. :)


best,

michael

Apologies for responding on such an old thread, but is there any chance you (or anyone else!) know where this was mentioned in the books? Did you literally mean the book titled "The Seth Material" or do you mean somewhere among all the books?

I've read the first 3 books, but can't seem to recall Seth talking about this, and wasn't able to locate it this morning from a cursory search. In my memory, he only ever said that our only limitation were violations of current "laws" of our system, such as not being able to re-grow a limb that wasn't there at birth.

Thanks.

Right .... throughout the material as a whole. Its in there. I used to have long conversations with my mentor about it. Do I have available quotes atm? Nope. But... its in there. We made agreements (contracts). That kind of thing. But its more than that.

I will see what I can do to find some information but it will not be today or tomorrow.

I had it all on a hard drive that I can not find currently (from moving and getting new computer).

Anyone else have this info handy?

PS. Break open those old posts if you want. I know I do. lol
I dont mind you reply to old posts! :)

@a probable me you might also be thinking about how we do have free will, but are sometimes limited in our choices to keep us on track with our intentions and those of our entity. You might find something of interest here in this old topic on free will:

https://speakingofseth.com/index.php/topic,1187.html The quotes are cited to their book locations.

Oh and no problem with reviving old topics, there are a lot of great ones. I need to find a way to reword the warning that comes up when someone decides to post in an old topic. It's a default in the software, I imagine to let people know their new post may go unnoticed. I'll make a note to look into changing the wording of the message. Thanks for the reminder, I've meant to do that before.

Thank you! I can see a lot of these mentions are in The Early Sessions - Makes sense why I couldn't recall it, as I haven't gotten through all of that yet.

Please correct me if I'm wrong:
If we are only allowed things that are part of our free will, then that must mean every single death aligns with the greater entity's intention, right. So even if a person didn't take care of their own health, they couldn't die if it wasn't their time? Just like if marriage and children weren't part of the greater entity's plan, then no amount of practicing Seth's exercises of visualizations/affirmations/etc would lead to that being included in the range of choices to pick from. Am I understanding that correctly?

@a probable me

I cant really say anything you have mentioned is wrong. How could you be? This is a wealth of information to get us to get in touch with our inner selves to find out who we are and what are steps are.

If a woman really wants a child and cant biologically have one because of whatever, and she tries to adopt and all these obstacles happen... it being thwarted at every turn, I would conclude it isnt in her cards to have children and it isnt her path. A decade later something could happen to say... her sister or brother or friend or whoever ... maybe they die and left three kids behind... and you get the kids.

Or like you said about death. Your entity knows exactly when this will be. Knows every breath and how many. Knows every heartbeat.

I dont think Seth is saying you cant be rich if you really want to be or you mustbe poor its in your cards ... but there is a path that leads us to our value fulfillment for our personalities that can only be achieved by this or that. If you are to learn a certain path as a a sailor , another life you are a basket weaver and another a baseball player and another a mother etc

Youre on the right track.

I may not even be making the sense I want to. Ive been preparing for family tomorrow. Egg hunts and cooking out.

Im trying to relax now and yalls conversations are awesome!

After tomorrow my brain will work better lol

I think that all makes sense function of how we see the relation between our outer- and inner- selves, entity, ..., of what is the extent of the free-will of each aspect of our personality, and the effect of the decisions made at each level.

Some of these quotes about free-will seem appropriate to this discussion.

Although I don't always write it explicitly, it should be inferred that everything I post is "my belief", "my opinion" on that subject, at that moment.
