From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo October/November 2007
I love Fall. It is my favorite time of the year. It is just warm enough during the day to not have to wear a jacket and just cool and crisp enough at night to wear a sweater or light jacket. Some people call this time of year, Autumn, but I still like Fall. Autumn seems a bit pretentious to me, but I suppose that this may just be my judgment.
In addition to the temperature, I love the colors and the smells of
Fall as the leaves change from green to multi-color to brown and then fall
to the ground. When I was a child, it was always fun to rake the leaves into
big piles, then run, jump, and play in them. Then we would rake them up in a
pile again and burn them…well, our parents would…another of those Fall
smells, but now in many areas, it is unsafe and against the law to burn
Each year when I travel to northern Minnesota in late August/early September, I get an extra two-week taste of Fall, just a bit early, 65 - 70 degrees during the day and low 40's at night, perfect for a light jacket or flannel shirt and perfect for building a fire on the lakeshore and conversing with friends while waiting to see if the Northern Lights will grace us with their beautiful and powerful presence.
As a former smoker, I love the smell of that fire on the shore, a little whiff of times past. On September 6th of this year, while I was in northern Minnesota, I celebrated the one-year anniversary of the date that I smoked my last cigarette, taking my farewell puff in Cabin # 1 at the Pine Aire Resort and have not had the need to smoke since. I have occasionally had the desire to smoke, only because I loved the taste of them, but not enough to light one up, although I have had dreams about smoking. I breathe better, feel better, walk farther, faster and with much more ease, and if I could have all of that and still be able to smoke, well, that would be a little slice of heaven. Of course, the Human finite mind has a belief that says that it is Either/OR, so that's what it is and unbelievably, that leads me to the next topic.
Creating and Holding Space
There was a time, not too long ago, when much was made about having the ability to create and hold space for the purpose of allowing others to do their own healing work on themselves or for the purpose of clearing a space to allow someone to present or channel, etc. There was such a big to-do made of this ability that there were Humans who were called spaceholders. There were a few who actually gave themselves the name Spaceholder. It is true that these spaceholders could actually create and hold space for others to do their own work, to work on themselves and to heal. Some of them actually believed that this was a special gift and talent unique unto themselves, but alas, this was not the case. Everyone can do it.
These spaceholders would go through all sorts of ritual and ceremony to clear a room or a place and to set the energy to create and hold space. They thought that this was necessary and some of them alluded to the fact that only spaceholders could do this, that only spaceholders had this particular gift. Many of them even commented about how hard it was to create and hold space, in some instances, and indeed, because they said it was so, it was so! There was a brief moment in time when I believed this, however, this belief did not last long as I discovered that anyone…in fact, everyone…can create and hold space. If it was a special talent, then it was a special talent that everyone has.
Those who are called healers, some of whom actually think that it is they who are doing the healing, are actually spaceholding, creating and holding a space for others to heal themselves, an activity that you may discover in a moment, is not even necessary. They are facilitating the healing, but they are not actually doing the healing.
Now, hold those thoughts for a moment while I present this next idea and then I will tie them together.
Periodically, I do a session as the client with two very powerful women here in St. Louis who are energy workers. They combine Light Integration Therapy and Past Life Clearing work with their own continuously evolving modality called Fusion, The Power Of Three™, where the two of them work together with the client to form the triumvirate.
One of the most interesting and powerful revelations coming from this latest session had to do with Holding Space. The revelation is this:
We Don't Have To Do It!
I do not have to consciously create and hold space for my clients or my seminar participants to do their work and neither do you. We can Choose to create and hold space, but it is most certainly not required, not by us, anyway! With the declaration of this idea, there are now at least a few spaceholders who are up-at-arms and protesting this concept. Why? It is because now they think that they don't have a job or a purpose and a few of them who think that this spaceholding ability is something really special, suddenly feel as though they have nothing special to offer or contribute and a few of the very insecure of this ilk perhaps now feel that they have nothing with which to attempt to control people.
For those of you who consciously or even unconsciously create and hold space such that your clients can do their own work, if they so choose, have you noticed how much energy it actually takes to create and hold that space? It takes a boatload full of energy, sometimes more so than other times, to create and hold that space, energy that you could be channeling into your facilitation, whether one-on-one or in groups.
Instead of you having to be the spaceholder, how would it be if the
spaceholding were already done for you? How would it be if the Universe
creates and holds the space for your client to do his/her work/healing?
Could you possibly trust the Universe enough to do this for you?
Okay…that's my judgment and I own it. I do agree that space must be held to allow people to do their own work and heal, but everyone has the ability to do this, so what's the big commotion about it? I never did get into all the pomp and circumstance, ritual, ceremony and who-ha that some have attached to it, so I was not surprised the other day when one of the things that came out of the session I was doing with my two energy-worker-friends was that we don't have to hold space because the Universe was already doing it for us. This is huge because now we can forget about all the window-dressing and channel all of our energy into the facilitation. For some people this may seem too practical…no mystery; no mystique…for me, Practical Spirituality works quite well.
How about you? Do you have any questions or comments regarding this matter? Your questions and comments are always welcome. You may contact me at Joe@HealingTheUniverse.com.
That's all for this time.
I am thankful and grateful to have the opportunity to express my flavor of the truth for your discernment, through this venue.

THE CLEAR VIBRATION™ October/November 2007 Installment # 56
Dearest Warriors of the Light…
We are honored once again to be here and have the opportunity to address you. You are progressing along what you call this path to enlightenment at such an accelerated pace that we have decided to discuss some things with you…mechanics perhaps…of how this whole idea of Human Experience…The Game…might work. We will discuss that which you call Past Lives and that which you call Future Lives as well as that which you call the NOW.
What we will present to you at this time will be presented as speculation, because you are not completely ready to comprehend what is actually occurring. What we will present, however, will be a leap closer to what actually is, so sit back, relax, enjoy and if you so choose, just sit with this information rather than attempting to figure it out or attempting to wrap your head around it, as some of you might say. Such wrapping, as it were, will only cause you to perhaps have a deeper intellectual comprehension of this state of illusion in which you find yourselves, but it will not move you any closer to actual knowing, so may we suggest that you just Be with this information rather than think about it and trust that what you need to know and when you need to know it will intersect at exactly the right moment in linear time. Oh my God…Linear Time…that, along with Space, may be perhaps two of the grandest pieces of the Grand Illusion, in fact, without Linear Time and Space, there could be no illusion.
The Grand Illusion
Any seasoned, educated, so-called spiritually evolved Human knows that this Human existence, experience and everything in it, that you think you are living at this time, is all an illusion. Well, intellectually you may know this and being the good little spiritually evolved Human that you are, or that you think you are supposed to be, you impart this knowledge to all who will listen. "This is all an illusion" you say, "This Human life is all an illusion…A Grand Illusion! It is not real. You are making it all up. If you do not like your life the way you have currently created it, if you do not like the illusion that you have currently created, then just change the illusion and therefore, change your life!" …and Blah! Blah! Blah! and Blah! Blah! Blah! as your clients, your regular friends, your new-bee spiritual friends/students and/or your group of participants listen to your intellect speak, some wanting to believe what you say, others beginning to think that you just might be a nut-job from another planet and still others actually believing what you say while thinking that they truly understand the concept and how it works! What fun! Humans are so much fun…so gullible! When you finally discover just how you have set yourselves up in this game, you are each going laugh…Oh my God! You will laugh so hard that you will cry, if indeed you actually have access to tears at such time as you discover this. Well…you could always create the illusion of tears, just as Hollywood creates special effects for movies. This is all so simple and yet, as Humans, you have made this all so complex and you take this all so seriously, Dearest Lightworkers. Again…we cannot contain ourselves waiting for you to see just how you have duped yourselves! You have done well.
Yes, you speak of the illusion. Do you include the illusion called Your Past Lives; and what about the illusion called Your Future Lives? Have you remembered to include those as part of your illusion? Here is another one for you, the illusion that Everything…Past, Present and Future…Occurs Simultaneously! Of course, here might be the biggest illusion of all, the illusion called NOW, Being In The NOW, Living In The Present, of which you and all of your teachers, students, facilitators and gurus…whatever you may want to call them…speak. Then again, NOW may be the only thing that is real and it just may not be what you think. If you try to wrap you head around this, you will surely miss the whole point, but do what you wish, do what you feel you must do. It is your choice.
Just for a moment, let us consider the illusion called your Past Lives. What if you made them all up…that you were a warrior, a priest, a king, a slave, black, white, red, yellow, Egyptian, Atlantian, Lemurian, good, bad, good and bad? Further, what if you made up all of the specific characters/people in these fictitious Past Lives…all of these different people with whom you have interacted, feel special, spiritual connections…energetic connections…and who somehow seem to show up in the NOW causing you all manner of good and bad, right and wrong…what if they do not really exist except as thought?
What if your guides, your angels and your other groups of energies with whom many of you converse do not even exist, except for in thought? What if the ALL THAT IS, is ALL THERE IS? In the same vain, consider your Future Lives and consider the NOW, The Present. Can you even begin to grasp this concept, even just a bit, that it may all just be the thought or thoughts of the ALL THAT IS? Perhaps they are just your thoughts. Perhaps it is you that is the ALL THAT IS.
What we have just stated is not exactly the way it is but it has been described to you in a way that you may begin to comprehend the way it is. We tell you this because if you can begin to grasp a knowingness of this theory or hypothesis, you may be able to truly grasp the meaning of true oneness and you may be able to grasp the idea that thoughts truly are things; and not only just the idea that thoughts are things but the idea that it is your thoughts that create the illusion of things…people, places, things and events…that appear to be real in your life.
Ascension…the 2012...is it possible that it is as simple as this realization? Is it possible that the convergence of Past, Present and Future Lives, of all parallel lives, however you choose to view them, on/in this particular consciousness in which you are aware and conscious, is simply this, the knowing that this is all an ILLUSION and you are in charge!?!
Dearest Warriors Of The Light, this is huge! If you truly get this, then the current latest and greatest modalities, the latest and greatest so-called secrets regarding manifestation and transformation, mysteriously hidden through the ages as some would have you believe, suddenly become archaic and antiquated. They still work, but why would you ride a horse if you could hitch a ride on a space ship? Of course, perhaps you enjoy being an equestrian and space ships scare you. It is your choice.
Merlin mastered illusion. This is the only Secret…ILLUSION…if indeed, there is/was a Secret. He knew that only that which is viewed as magic could only be manifested through complete trust in himself and trust in his ability to master that which is ILLUSION.
Again, our suggestion is to just sit with this, just BE with this and trust that what you need to know will show up at precisely the moment when you are ready for it and when you need to know it.
WE ARE ONE and until next time, we express to you our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the opportunity to present this information to you for your discernment.
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
TAKE ALL OF IT. TAKE SOME OF IT. TAKE NONE OF IT.
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
