Thank you for stating what I have been thinking for a while. For a couple years I was extremely ill and western medicine could not find out why. I meditated, visualized, affirmed, prayed and tried numerous self-healing methods. Finally, a friend got me an appointment with an alternative healer; I began to improve and am now in good health. And I got some snide remarks about not being able to heal myself. My thought is that my prayers were answered. We are here as a collective, and although we are individuated from one whole, we are not necessarily intended to go it alone. I asked for healing and I got it! People came into my life and facilitated that experience. That's what it's about. I AM SO GRATEFUL.

still thinking about this. Sometimes I remember, that everything comes us through other people. Someone designed and made the chair I am sitting on. Some one made the computer I am typing on. When I remember I have graditude for all the people I will never meet who facilitate the good in my life. The list is endless. So when I have intentions for something to occur in my life I can think of all those unseen people involved.

I always enjoy your writing. It is clear you think deeply. I set intentions and I pray. And I pray that all may benefit. I recently waited at service Ontario. My son lost his wallet and had only a health card and his birth cerificate and was trying to get an additional piece of government ID. He told me he had gone there 4 times before with no success. See he was born in the USA with one parent from US and other Canadian. The person in past had questioned if he was Canadian clearly not understanding that if one parent is Canadian then you are Canadian regardless of where you are born. So as I waited with him I prayed. I blessed everyone in the office. That all may experience success with ease. That the folks working there may have a pleasant day. When his number was called he summitted his health card and birth certificate. The person had him pay and told him his ID card would arrive in 2 weeks.. To pray that all may be blessed by the outcome works for me. And what sometimes looks like a hardship may in the long run be a blessing.

Another Great article to follow up your first, a couple of observations your post sparked within me. The first is our consciousness is so compressed to access these physical vehicles that we can only access parts of the expanded awareness we have access to outside this physical vehicle. While still within these vehicles. The act of prayer or meditation helps access some of those compressed areas and bring some of that knowing back to apply within these physical vehicles. I don't care how hard you pray for or meditate about a banana, unless you physically get up and grab the banana you cannot eat the banana. It requires both the intention of thought, the physical actions of seeing the banana, the physical actions of getting up from your prayer or meditation, and walking to the kitchen and getting the banana and pealing the outer skin of the banana to eat the banana. Thoughts inspire actions that motivate us to act... Love your work Joe... Peace...

Thank you dear Joe for this wonderful article. It has awakened my mind to fascinating things to ponder, and I have to admit I’m feeling inspiration as well.

Thank you for voicing your thoughts and feelings on this, and for being open to sharing your experiences related to your past lives. That has peaked my interest!

My man! I love how you ended this bro.

Question though: What if our current paradigm IS THE designed limitation? You know this, but that's the ethos of my new book: https://unorthodoxy.substack.com/p/the-history-of-you-a-book-that-connects.

Looking forward to connecting with you man!

I think I enjoyed part 2 even more than part 1! :)

"Just because we can see that everything is consciousness and that simply viewing something shows our intentions has an impact on it, doesn’t mean there aren’t co-created confines to the human experience that make the experience what it is for a reason."

This is a wonderful thought to consider, I've never looked at it this way before. It actually brings a peace in a way. Like, accepting our current experience as it is more easily. Your Explorer Lounge members message I read yesterday about unfoldment comes to mind as well... with less resistance we gain greater unfoldment and clarity. Change without trying to hard.

Thanks for sharing all of this and I hope to hear more about your past life experiences one day!
