From the Desk Of Joe Rumbolo September 2004
I'm writing this commentary from a cabin in northeastern Minnesota, a feeble, underhanded stone's toss from Lake Kabetogama (6 feet from the water!), about 35 miles via automobile from the border of the province of Ontario in Canada and by water, only about 6 miles from my cabin. The lake is beautiful and the scenery is magnificent…Breathtaking! This is the 16th year for this trip with basically the same group of people who I met during my years as a musician, playing on the road with my band, The Spirit Of St. Louis.
For one fleeting moment, I thought about not making the trip this year. I have been quite busy with preparations for my MANIFESTING THE LIFE YOU WANT seminar coming up on 9/25 and 26 and I thought that if I left for 11 days that things just wouldn't get done. That was my humanness…and my guilt…speaking to me. Instead of Placing Myself First, taking care of myself and filling my own cup, which is one of the things that I facilitate, I actually thought about not taking care of myself and missing this annual event. As this thought flashed through my mind, I could hear The Oneness, with 2 of my faithful guides, Mathias the Philosopher and Closcovi the Warrior at the forefront, laughing until their sides ached and with tears rolling down their faces (if in fact, they actually had sides, tears and faces!) and so, gratefully, here I am.
The atmosphere is peaceful and serene and the energy is just going wild; well, at least for me it is, anyway. Maybe I brought it with me from St. Louis. A few weeks ago, the flashes of light in my peripheral and even in front of me started again, only this time, much more vivid and dancing wildly. As an example of the kinds of experiences that I've been having, the other day I went to the bank and as I reached to open the door, the door next to it seemed to get wavy, appearing to begin to vaporize and for a moment, the hand that was reaching for the other door almost appeared as though it would go through it. Of course, I immediately snapped back to 3-D and the doors instantly solidified. Driving has been quite an adventure again, too. I feel as though only part of me is present with the rest of me being somewhere else and as a result, I don't feel in complete control of the vehicle.
My drive from the Minneapolis airport northwest, to Longville, Minnesota was very interesting. I went to Longville to spend the night with some friends who are annual regulars on this trip and to caravan with them to our final destination the next day. During the first hour and a half of my drive, I only traveled 48 miles and that feeling of not being in control of the vehicle persisted. Granted, there was some traffic coming out of the Twin Cities…but only 48 miles? Wow! The next hour and a half proved to be quite interesting as the traffic opened up. Even with that consideration, I not only traveled the appropriate distance for that time frame, traveling just above the speed limit, but I just about made up for the deficiency incurred in the first hour and a half and ultimately arrived at my destination 15 minutes earlier than anticipated, stopping twice on the way!
The next morning, we headed northeast across the state about 175 miles to our destination. Since I was in my rental car alone, my thought was to spend the time in quiet, planning the details of my seminar, but of course, the Universe had other plans for me…or more accurately, I had other plans for me! Although my thought was to spend the time in quiet, what I was feeling was that I wanted to listen to some music. For a moment, I again felt a bit guilty because I didn't think that the time would be spent productively. Wrong Again!!! I had a total blast listening to Chicago, Tower Of Power, Zachary Richard, Joss Stone and Cheryl Crow; five different genres of music and I love them all. The vibration that is created in the music of all five artists just sweeps right through me and makes me tingle! I found myself laughing, crying tears of happiness, joy and sadness, playing drums on the steering wheel, talking out loud to the artists and singing along. Some of the songs were lyrically meaningful to me, some were not and some of them carried great sentimental value for me, but it is the vibration of the music, well…for me, it is magnificent!
When Cheryl Crow's Leaving Las Vegas came on, I recalled that it was that song that prompted me to buy her first CD. I respect and admire this Kennett, MO singer/songwriter very much. Her songs are very well crafted and her lyrics paint vivid pictures for me. There is a line in that song where she sings,
"I'm standing in the middle of the desert, waiting for my ship to come in."
What an incredible visual is created for me when I hear her sing these few words, feeling the desperation, fear, loneliness, irony, pleading and false hope in her voice. Every time I hear her sing those words, here is what I see:
Cheryl is standing barefoot in a vast, open, lonely desert, her toes digging in the sand, her eyes closed and her arms outstretched from her sides in front of her at a 45 degree angle to her body with her palms up, open and ready to receive what the Universe has to offer. The red/orange ball of a sun is setting in the west to her left just over the mountains and she is wearing a beautiful, white gown as the warm desert breeze gently caresses her face and works its way through her flowing brown hair, highlighted by the descending rays of light and the sheerness of her gown.
Off in the far distance is a beautifully waxed and polished, wooden sailing vessel, its sails filled to capacity with wind, yet almost going nowhere, as it struggles to glide across the grittiness of the sand, attempting to reach her, moving so slowly that it may never manifest for her in this lifetime, causing her to feel stuck, give up and turn around and walk away from this, her ship!
Have you ever felt this way before? Are you feeling this now? Are you truly manifesting the life you want to have…the life you DESERVE to have? Do you feel stuck even though you have done what you think are all the "right" things? You have put your clear intension out there, you have meditated and you consistently and sincerely offer thanks and gratitude for all that you have and all that is in the process of coming to you, and still, nothing…or very little.
Action, Dearest Warriors! You must take some action! The moment that you put your clear intention out there, the Universe begins to build your ship. In fact, since past, present and future occur simultaneously, your ship is already built. The Universe has and continues to do its part and there are things that you must do on this side of the veil to facilitate the results. In this scenario, if I am really interested in having my ship come in, the first thing I would do is open my eyes so I could actually see the ship, no matter how far off in the distance it might be. How many times do people search and search and search for what they want and when they find it (or it finds them), they can't see it or don't recognize it, so they continue to search. Next, I would take some action and travel to water. A ship such as this is a water going vessel and travels much more freely, easily and faster in water than it does on sand. To further accelerate the manifestation process, I may decide to take additional action and swim out to meet it, or better yet, rent a good boat and motor to more quickly reach it! Some of you who have analytical minds may be thinking that your ship doesn't sail on water; it flies, so you'll just wait until it lands. Not a bad thought AND perhaps you could just accelerate the process even more by building a landing field!
Once again, from the moment that you declare your clear intention, the work necessary on the other side of the veil is complete…finished…done. Then you get to be responsible for taking the next right action, which leads to the next right action and the next and the next, etc., and with each action, you get to trust that the next right action will reveal itself. Oh, and by the way, even if an action appears to be a failure, IT IS NOT, as long as you take the pieces that work and move forward with them, even if you only learn what not to do.
Wow! My dear Ms. Crow, you have reminded me of all of this in just one song…again! I offer you my thanks and gratitude for this reminder, in just this way, so that I could share it with others.
The wildness in the energy continued, with electronics going wacko again…or still! Having just purchased this laptop a few days before leaving for the north woods, I didn't have much time to activate many of its functions. Last night, I began that process and couldn't get anything to work, so I did the channel (the word processor was functional) and before going to bed, I decided to try again. Everything that I had attempted to activate earlier that had not worked, worked just fine! Had I decided earlier, that because I consider myself to be so technologically illiterate that I could not do this and then later, knowing that I absolutely needed these functions, decided that I was in fact, literate enough to do this, or was the Universe just playing with me? I feel like it had everything to do with my thoughts…my perceptions…and then, as soon as I changed my thoughts…Bam!!! It all worked!!!
Satisfied that I had been successful in my attempts at "technological wizardry" I decided to meditate before bed. Sitting in a chair at the kitchen table I closed my eyes and immediately fell, with a hard thud, so deep Within myself that I thought I was going to turn myself inside out and I felt like I weighed a ton. I know that I did not go "out there" anywhere. I definitely went deeply Within and as soon as I came to the realization of where I was, I snapped out of it! I need to learn how to stop doing that!!!
Another thing that I have been sometimes experiencing recently is a slow motion type of feeling when I begin to walk forward or even lean forward while sitting. It feels like I am moving through many dimensions in just one step and of course, that is what we are always doing, although we are not always aware of it. It is a feeling of I'm not really just here, I AM everywhere all at once! Yesterday, while speeding across the lake to a prime fishing spot, I closed my eyes (fortunately, I was not driving the boat!), feeling the wind and the fine spray of water on my face, I again felt like I was EVERYWHERE…and even NOWHERE, in the same instant! What was it that we were reminded of so often when we were growing up? Oh, yes! GOD IS EVERYWHERE! Hmmm!?! Could it possibly be that…? We? Are? God?
As I finish this commentary I'm gazing out the window of my cabin at the beautiful lake that WE have created. I'll sign off for now to go outside and enjoy this glorious day in the north woods and see what miraculous events are in store for me today!
Thank you for being with me in this moment of NOW and allowing me to share my experiences with you. If any of you are having similar experiences and would like to share them, I'd love to hear from you. You can email me at
SPREAD LOVE and PACK LIGHT!

THE CLEAR VIBRATION September 2004 Installment # 19
Dearest Warriors Of The Light…
WE ARE ONE and we are honored to come to you once again, in this moment of NOW, through our partner the human, who is also called the Sentinel, not only in this lifetime but in many previous lifetimes and who more comfortably in this incarnation, answers to the name of Joe.
Just as you do not quite yet know who you really are, even though we continuously communicate this to you and you are beginning to grasp this, neither does he, although during the past six years, it has become much more clear to him.
Until the age of five, his comprehension of us was quite clear and after that, it progressively became cloudy. We knocked on his door at the age of ten and again at the age of fourteen. He peered through the closed blinds and thought that it just could not be, so he did not answer. At the age of twenty-two, we knocked again. Although he did not answer fully, he did begin to investigate and by 1997 we were leaning on the doorbell. One year later, with the assistance of a few Human Angels that we had enrolled, he finally threw open the door, stepped outside to greet us, invited us in and resumed the relationship that we have had with him for many, many lifetimes…one of our many spokespersons. Of course, we had to come to him when he was ready and in a way that he could comprehend, at first, one guide at a time, then many guides, each with a name and a specific job that he could relate to.
We told him that our real job was to lead him to his Higher Self. That was true and we accomplished that (because he allowed it) as he began to communicate directly with his Higher Self while still using us as his training wheels.
The integration continued as those who called themselves the Many showed up to contribute, along with the melding male and female energies of himself. We told him that this integration process would be complete by August 2004 at the latest. Just ahead of schedule, what he had suspected for quite some time came to fruition, and he accepted who was really communicating with him…THE ONE…ALL OF US…ALL OF YOU…ALL THAT IS…WE ARE ONE, and that is who speaks to you in this moment of NOW! ONE!
THE ONE…GOD…THE UNIVERSE…THE ALL THAT IS…can be found within each of you. We cannot emphasize this enough…Within Each Of You…pieces of God that you are; powerful Creators that you are; God/Humans that you are.
Notice that we said Creators and not Co-creators. There was a time when you were all Co-creators, co-creating with the Universe, riding with your training wheels on. One by one, some of you have begun to unscrew the nuts and bolts, loosening the wheels. Some are still screwed on tight, some are loose and some have been taken off altogether.
Wherever you are in this process is okay. Our partner, as an example was a late bloomer and some of you may be, too. This makes no difference. You each bloom when it is time for you to bloom and each in your own way, so we suggest that you not judge others for where they are and we especially suggest that you not judge yourself. You will each arrive when it is time for you to arrive and no one arrives until everyone arrives. This is not a race and it is not a competition unless you choose to make it that, but why would you? We are a team! WE ARE ONE! Do you really want to defeat yourselves? You have done that before, you know, and this time, you agreed not to do that…and you are still at choice and all choices are honored.
Now, for a moment, we will return to this business of Within. You have heard over and over again to Go Within. Everything you need to know is Within. The Kingdom Of Heaven is Within. You have heard this through many lifetimes, in many different places and in the many different games that you have played.
ALL THAT IS, is Within you. You already know everything there is to know. This knowledge is stamped on every cell in your human body and imbedded in every strand of your DNA. Of course, as part of the process of being born into each incarnation, you forget, and the game is To Remember. Everyone knows the same as the next and each only remembers some of it. None of you remembers all of it, but some may remember more than others, depending upon their progression, and everyone does not remember the same things, so one person may know as much as another and they both may not remember the same things. This is quite interesting because it can contribute heavily to separation, which leads to people seeking "power" (force…not authentic power) and control, and causing the illusion of right and wrong and competition of all sorts, including spiritual competition and spiritual elitism. If there is anything that makes the hair on the backs of our necks stand up straight (if indeed we had hair or necks!), it would be this spiritual competition and elitism. What is the thought process here? Is it that one person thinks they know (or have remembered) more than another and that makes him/her better or that his/her information is better than another and from that, a Win/Lose is created? And then you wonder why there is abuse, drive by shootings, deceit and wars? At times some of you are just too funny, and don't sit there (unless of course, it is your choice) saying to yourself that you've never had thoughts of this or done this before. Anyone who has been human has at least had these thoughts, let alone taking the actions that it leads to.
In spite of this, or really, because of this, we commend you on the marvelous job that you have done and continue to do, because, you see, in order for you to ultimately step into Oneness, you had to forget who you truly are, create incredible separation among yourselves (and you have done this so well!), begin to remember who you are and create Unity Consciousness.
The good news is where you are taking this. Instead of always leading to separation, some are noticing that by sharing what they remember in such a way as to not make the other person wrong, that a wonderful exchange of remembrances can be had for the mutual benefit and enhanced remembering of all, leading to the reestablishment of Unity Consciousness. We ask that you consider the way that you present your remembrances to others. We ask that you do so in a non-threatening manor and in such a way as to not make the other person wrong. When you do this in this way, you are more apt to have others "hear" what you remember instead of resenting what you have to say and tuning you out. Everyone has something to contribute, even if they, in your judgment, appear to not be as spiritually evolved as you. Presentation, Dearest Warriors Of The Light…It Is All About The Presentation! You have done magnificent work in this area and at this time, the whole is moving forward in quantum leaps. We are honored to be in the presence of such magnificence and to be allowed to communicate with you!
In your many exchanges about the remembrances that you each have, there has been much conversation regarding the 3rd Dimension verses the 4th Dimension verses the 5th Dimension (competition?), in which dimension are you residing, which place is the "better" residence (spiritual elitism, perhaps?) and just exactly where do you have to be and what do you have to do in order to truly create Heaven on earth, Home on your side of the veil. The greater question would even be, "What does it mean to create Home on your side of the veil and how does that look?
Let us explore this for a moment…or an hour! We have been known to get quite conversational at times, although in the judgment of some, we are just being long winded! No matter, have your fun and know that we will have ours.
Some have said that you are living in the 5th Dimension and you are such powerful creators, that in each moment, you create the illusion of the 3rd Dimension within in the 5th. Others have said that you are living in both the 3rd and the 5th or in the 4th and the 5th, learning the tools offered in the 5th. Still others insist that they are actually in the 5th because they believe that is the vibration of Home so that is where you must be to create Home on your side of the veil and they are having difficulty handling everyday 3-D life. First of all, do you really think that Home is only contained in the 5th Dimension and can only be created there? Why would you limit yourselves in that way and if you really want to go Home, then we encourage you to go. It is your choice. The game that you signed up for was not to go Home, it was to create Home on your side of the veil. Anyone can go Home, and you may if you choose to do so, but the game is to remember who you truly are…the Creators that you truly are…and then to create Home.
Whatever your belief happens to be, it does not really matter. It is all illusion anyway, so why get caught up in it? Oh yes! Now we remember. You are human and you think like humans! Of course! To play this particular game, you must be human and like all "good" humans, you think you must conceptualize. You allow your brain to get in the way. What a concept! Hahahaha!
Our partner has said on many occasions, in fact, more recently, it has been almost daily, that to create Home on your side of the veil, you must take the 5th Dimensional tools that have been given to you and that you have learned and ground them in the 3rd Dimension. To clarify, that means to take the information and the tools and use them in everyday 3-D life to CREATE HOME ON YOUR SIDE OF THE VEIL. To further clarify, you must take some actions!
To even further clarify, what you have been doing, whether you are aware of it or not, is building a bridge from The Source, from The Light, from All That Is…FROM HOME…To Your Planet…EARTH! You have been doing this. That is exciting and we want you to know that. You see, Dearest God/Humans, in building this bridge, you span much more than just the 3rd and the 5th. You span all dimensions. There is no limit to what you can do. You see, just as the pilgrims came from England and others of their ilk came from other countries to the Americas to create, or more accurately, re-create their homes, so are you doing the same thing, only on a much grander scale…in fact, the grandest of scales. What they (and you, since many of you were they) did, was merely the dress rehearsal. Now you are playing for all the marbles!
Travel across this massive structure that you have created as often as you wish, returning each time with all the knowledge and tools that you can carry and apply them to what you often call your mundane, everyday, 3-D life. If you will diligently do this, you will create (re-create) Heaven On Earth, HOME On Your Side Of The Veil. God/Humans that you are, you cannot miss.
We remind you once again that when you have created the illusion of being stuck (you are so powerful!) and the illusion of "the going gets tough", know this above all:
Love is the answer,
With the greatest amount of thanks, gratitude, appreciation and love for the opportunity to present this to you, we respectfully submit this information for your discernment.
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
TAKE ALL OF IT. TAKE SOME OF IT. TAKE NONE OF IT.
YOUR GLORIOUS CHOICE!
We ask only that you…
Laugh Often, Spread The Light and DO NOT FORGET TO BREATHE!
You Are The Breath Of God
You ARE God
And So Is Everyone
I AM Joseph…I AM the Sentinel…I AM You…WE ARE ONE
