From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo January 2005
HAPPY NEW YEAR! And indeed, it will be a Happy New Year, if you so choose! For me, the holiday season was quite fun and enlightening, gathering with family and friends and having the opportunity to correspond with, talk to and reconnect with soul family members throughout the U.S., Canada and the world, including emails from as far away as Italy, the U.K. and Australia.
Although I thought that December and January would be down time, I was mistaken. With the increase in private sessions, preparing for two MANIFESTING THE LIFE YOU WANT!™ Seminars (February 26 & 27 in Burlington, Ontario and April 16 & 17 in St. Louis, MO) and making preparations to host Steve and Barbara Rother's SPIRITUAL PSYCHOLOGY Seminar, March 8-13 in St. Louis, MO, including a couple of book signings and a lecture, my time has been productively filled. In addition, I have been investigating some seminar opportunities in other cities, as well as in the corporate sector and Tracey and I have been doing the research for a new, as yet untitled, 6-day intensive course. Although I have spent many hours working, especially since early summer, it no longer feels like work. To me, it is play and there are times that I need to force myself to stop, just so I can recharge my batteries. That is the result of working in my passion…The Illusion of Work becomes the Illusion of Play, and I must tell you, it feels great! I think I like it and I would highly recommend it to everyone!
In mid-December, I took the opportunity to stop my work/play for a few days and drive up to Minnesota with my good friend John to bid farewell to one of our favorite restaurants, Sandy Point Supper Club in Oronoco, MN. When John and I were on the road with band and performing in Minnesota, we would frequent that restaurant and over the past sixteen years, we would end our annual Minnesota fishing trip with dinner at Sandy Point. The restaurant's last day of business was December 31st so we decided to visit this memory-filled establishment one last time, have an unexpected holiday visit with close friends in the area, including one of our favorite people who was a long-time employee of the restaurant and to re-member our good friend Gerry, the former proprietor and public-relations-man-extraordinaire of Sandy Point when it was in its heyday, who made his transition fourteen years ago.
I will never forget the first time I went there. The band and I were performing in Rochester, MN and my friend George told me about the place so we decided to drive out there one Sunday evening. That was the start of it all. It has continued until now and the wonderful memories will always be with me. The stories that I could tell about my experiences in and around that building would make you laugh until you cried, warm your heart, break your heart and fill volumes. The food was always wonderful…prime rib, beef stroganoff, steak and lobster, roasted duck…but when Gerry unexpectedly left, his hearty laugh, exuberant personality, friendship, the wild game feeds and the food fights that he incited were greatly missed and the business was never quite the same, through several changes in ownership.
As I walked through the empty building after it closed on the Saturday night that we were there, I could hear Gerry's loud, boisterous laugh; I could hear our band sitting around the almost in tune piano on a Sunday night, singing comedic versions of the songs we played at our performances (and some that we did not regularly do), sometimes completely choreographed and with audience participation; I could see food flying across tables, instigated by our friend the proprietor; and numerous other things that I will not bore you with at this time. You'll just have to wait for the book, or better yet, "Sandy Point: The Movie!"
It was a wonderful 3-day break as John and I had the opportunity to take a bittersweet step back into our youth, reminisce and re-live a most incredible time in our lives. The book is closed on Sandy Point but our hearts remain open, remembering a time in our lives that we will never forget.
Moving forward, I've just recently read an article and a channel that have ticked me off more than just a bit. I am still human, after all, and there are a few things that will cause me to get angry. To me, this material was very fear-based, giving us, as humans, a slap on the hand and telling us that if we as a whole, continue on our current path, we are doomed!
This information spoke of the current state of the world and how badly we're screwing things up. I will agree that things do not look good, on the surface; however, this idea of us being doomed just does not resonate with me at all! I don't feel as though the intent of this collective information is to scare people or to instill fear and yet, that is exactly what it does. It certainly does not empower anyone nor does it encourage people to be the self-empowered, intentional creators that they came here to be. I guess what really ticked me off was that I was finding it difficult to discover a way to practically apply this negative sounding information in my life (perhaps that is just my stuff) and the tone that was set sounded to me like: You all had better straighten up and fly right…or else! That again, my friends, just does not resonate with me. It sounded to me like someone attempting to put the fear of God in us. LOL! The Fear of God…can you imagine? The article even stated that we have misused our gift of free will. Now tell me, if we are each given the gift of free will, just exactly how do we misuse it? It's free will! FREE…WILL! It means that we can do whatever we choose to do, even if someone disagrees with it; even if God disagrees with it (God Forbid!), which is not the case (God Forbid! Who came up with that lame, fear-based phrase?). Is it possible that God on one hand, would give us free will and then on the other hand, tell us that He/She/Us does not like our choices and that we only have free will as long as He/She/Us agrees with those choices. I don't think so. Free? Am I missing something here? I am not saying that robbing banks, killing people, starting wars, etc. is okay with me and I am saying that those are all free choices, like it or not.
This information spoke of the separation and isolation that we are creating through the desire for control and power caused by fear, resulting in terrorism, war in the Middle East and more, and how we will ultimately pay this behavior. It even spoke of the occurrences of natural disasters as a form of punishment for our misuse of free will.
On this subject of natural disasters, the planet has been purging and cleansing itself…hurricanes…floods…earthquakes and such…especially the powerful tsunami in Asia. Is this really payback or is this merely purging, cleansing, clearing and healing? We've known for quite some time that events such as this would occur and that many would choose to make their transition at this time. Although many people have discussed the possibility of such occurrences and the theoretical magnitude to which they would occur, I don't feel like we even had a clue regarding the severity of the physical and psychological implications and the numbers of people who would actually parish. It's one thing to talk about these things and quite another to experience them in some form, either as a direct participant or as an observer.
The occurrence of this incredible tsunami, with tens of thousands of people choosing to make their transition at this time, can be viewed from the human perspective as a great tragedy, considering the numbers of people involved and especially considering the separation of parents and children. Imagine for a moment, the fear being experienced by the parents who cannot find their children or who have found them dead; or the children who cannot find their parents or have found them dead. Viewing this in another way, however, from the standpoint of the bigger picture, we have known for quite some time that these kinds of events would occur, that large numbers of people would choose to make their transition at this time (how large has only been speculation), some choosing to leave so that they could come back to make their contribution to the evolution of the planet and to humankind by reincarnating as more highly evolved humans (however that looks) and some choosing to continue their work and contribute in other than human form on the plane which is popularly known as the other side of the veil and/or other places.
Just in case you are wondering, WE ARE NOT SCREWING UP! WE ARE NOT BEING PUNISHED! What we are doing and what the planet is doing is exactly what she and we are supposed to be doing…purging, clearing, cleansing and healing, in the process of raising our vibration even further. The planet does not think about it. She Just Does It, because she knows that it is necessary. We, on the other hand, for the most part, have to think about it and wonder what we're doing and whether or not what we're doing is right.
The wars, terrorism, drive-by shootings and abusive behaviors; the separation and isolation and the ensuing fear-based struggles for control and power; even the natural disasters with the resulting damage, psychological effects and transitions…all for the purpose of Purging and Clearing the old, heavy, sticky, feel-bad, debilitating energy. This is being experienced at the planetary level, at the animal and human level, as a whole, and even at the individual level.
In the past year of 2004 alone, there were many people, including myself, who were purging, clearing, cleansing and healing emotionally, for this incarnation and for past incarnations, to light-en ourselves up, to raise our vibrations, to prepare for what is next. Has it been easy? No, not particularly. There were times when I felt like I would not be able to weather the storms…when I wondered if it was my time to make my transition…but I did weather the storms and here I am, one year later, excited about this new year of 2005, what is next and all that is available.
I express to you my most sincere thanks and gratitude for this forum. I do not expect everyone to agree with me nor do I expect this information to resonate with everyone, however, I do offer this information for your discernment. Take from it what you will and leave the rest. It is always your choice.
Spread Love and Pack Light!

WORKING AND PLAYING WITH ENERGY by Tracey Ruggiero
We Did It!
THE CLEAR VIBRATION™ January 2005 Installment # 23
Dearest Warriors Of The Light…
WE ARE ONE and we are honored to be here with you in this extraordinary moment of NOW, to welcome you to this exciting "New Year" of 2005 in what you call the "history" of the Planet Earth Project. Of course, this year of 2005 has already unfolded, will be unfolding in what you call the "future" and is currently unfolding in this moment of NOW…what you call Real Time, or the Present. Actually, Real Time occurs in All Time or in fact, a more accurate explanation would be that Real Time occurs in NO TIME. You already know that what you call TIME is just another one of the magnificent illusions that you have designed to allow you to efficiently play this game.
Although many of you know this intellectually, we realize that this is one of many seemingly difficult concepts or illusions (which you have created) for humans to truly grasp. The more of these illusions that you can remember and the more that you can remember that they are actually Your Creations, the more realizations that you will have of Who You Really Are…Gods in Human Form. The more of Who You Really Are that you remember and the more responsibility you are willing to take for Who and What you are, the more Powerful you become and this is the key to you living your life in human form as the Self-empowered, Intentional Creators that you incarnated to be…That You Truly Are!
So many Concepts! So many Illusions! All of which are your creations. You are all so magnificent! How many times have you each thought What The Hell Was I Thinking?!? When it is your time, the Celestial Comedy Club has a spot for each one of you as a Headliner!
Last time, we spoke of a number of wonderful illusions that you have
created, just to lend more spice…or would that be FEAR…to this
game that you have so masterfully designed. We spoke of many of our favorites…
The "Other" Side of the Veil…Revisited!
In this moment of NOW, let us delve further into this illusion that you have created which you call The "Other" Side of the Veil and allow us to quote ourselves, regarding this topic:
An Excerpt From:
"When we refer to The "Other" Side of the Veil, in a sense, we really do mean The "Other" Side of the Veil. You see, for us to fully come and join you where you are and to fully mingle and live with you, we would have to lower our vibration so much that we would have to incarnate to completely accomplish this (Or Would We?) and then, what would be the point? Although many would love to incarnate again, the lines remain long and the spaces are reserved only for those of your ilk…The All Stars. As it is, we must lower our vibration considerably, just to communicate with you and to at times, be somewhat visible to you. However, because of the magnificent work you have done and continue to do, you have raised your vibration so much, with the result being that the veil is becoming much thinner, that you have made our job much easier. This is not the complete explanation. There is much more to this that is far beyond your comprehension in this moment of NOW, but in "time" as you continue to move forward, new pieces will be revealed to you to further clarify. For NOW, suffice it to say, that we exist where we exist, in what appears to be The "Other" Side of the Veil."
We realize that in saying what we have said, that we have made a group of statements containing more holes than a wheel of the finest Swiss cheese and more loopholes than the income tax return of a multi-millionaire. It may appear as though we have attempted to cover our collective bottoms! Then again, perhaps we have only succeeded in exposing our sacred bottoms by attempting to hedge our bet! LOL! Some of us have lived in human form many times before, you know, so we do know how humans operate!
It is now time to reveal a new clarifying piece or two, so…here is the question: Is There or Is There Not a veil? The answer of course, is Yes! There IS a veil…Because YOU Said There Is A Veil! Now, how is that for being powerful? YOU Said There Is A Veil and VIOLA! There Is A Veil! You did not physically place a veil over your eyes so that you could not see. You did not physically cloak yourselves so that you could not see or so no one could see you, although many times you wish and even pretend that you cannot be seen. Oh, contraire, magnificent humans! Similar to the child who is IT, playing a game of hide and seek (and that is exactly what you are doing!) you have covered your eyes and are counting to a hundred while the others hide. The only difference is that You Are All IT, You Are All Counting and Hiding From Each Other…and especially from Yourselves…You Have Covered Your Eyes With An Illusion That You Have Chosen To Call THE VEIL! Magnificent! And of course, as long as you say there is a veil, there is a veil…and it is you who determines the magnitude of the veil…how "thick" or "thin" it is, or even if it does exist. You see, Dearest Warriors, it is your choice. That does not surprise you, does it?
Since you have instituted this illusion of the veil into the design of this game, as one of the game's most basic rules so that you could forget who you truly are, we are obliged to observe the rules…unless we do not! What we mean is that most of the time we do observe the rules and there are times when we do not. In those times when we do not observe the rules, it is because a person or group of people have sufficiently lifted the illusion of the veil…created an opening for us, consciously or unconsciously…to allow us through.
This whole business of us having to lower our vibration considerably, to communicate with you or even to appear to you, is a "truth" only because it fits neatly into the package of illusions (or de-lusions, as the case may be) that you have so extraordinarily created, however, it is not the capital "T" truth. It is only an aspect of the truth, within the context of the rules of The Game.
Many of you, in raising your vibration, have created the illusion of the veil "lifting" or "becoming thinner." In doing so, you have created an opening for us to not only communicate with you but to at times, appear to you. We only have to work as hard as you cause us to work to accomplish this, based on the magnitude of your illusion, which directs our observation of your rules in Your Game. The extent to which we operate is based on the extent to which you give us Your permission. It Is Your Game and You Are The Magnificent Players. At this time, we only coach when we are asked and it often happens that you ask at a level at which you are not totally aware…at the soul level…and even as part of a contract prior to this incarnation. It is however, your choice to listen or not; to live by the contract or not.
The next question is this: Are You Now Ready To Dispense With This Illusion Called The Veil? A few of you may be ready and many of you are not, because dispensing with this illusion will drastically change the game. Many of you are saying, "Come on! Let's change the game. We're ready!" Are you really ready? Are you truly willing to give up first base so that you may possibly have second base? Are you willing to take that risk?
For a few, the game has already appeared to change. For some, the game appears to be changing…evolving. For others, the game appears to be stagnant. Illusions! All Illusions! Where do you want to be in your Grand Design of things?
Change Your Illusion! CREATE A NEW ILLUSION!
Does that sound too simple or must this all be made complex for it to
And Your vibration…why not continue to raise Your vibration to cause the game to continue to evolve? Yes, you can do that and it does work! You are witness to that. It is working right now. So tell us…exactly how are you raising your vibration? Are you shifting your energy and Feeling Good to raise your vibration? By doing this, are you not just creating a new illusion? Could it be that this whole idea of Energy, Vibration and Feeling Good is just another illusion of Your design? Oh, my US (God)! Have we just opened yet another can of worms?
As we have been communicating this information to our partner, there
has been a nagging thought in the back of his mind. He has been
wondering if this information about ILLUSION, negates the
information, tools, processes and mechanics that he facilitates in his MANIFESTING
THE LIFE YOU WANT!™ Seminar/Workshop. Breathe easy, our brother. IT
DOES NOT, and in fact, it not only does not negate the course,
this information enhances it! The Practical Application of the
information in this course will cause one to dissolve whatever the
"old" illusions are, if that is one's choice, and create new
illusions…illusions of one's choice…and then the next new illusion and
the next and the next, because after all, THIS IS ALL AN ILLUSION,
As a part of the overall mission of we and our partner, the Sentinel, to facilitate Self-empowerment, Manifestation and the Practical Application of Divinely Inspired Information in your life, we are honored to present this information to you for your discernment.
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
YOUR GLORIOUS CHOICE!
We ask only that you…
Spread The Light
DO NOT FORGET TO BREATHE!
YOU ARE GOD, and So Is Everyone Else.
I AM Joseph…I AM the Sentinel…I AM the human…I AM You
WE ARE ONE
