I woke up yesterday morning (my birthday) thinking about beauty, individualism and self-expression. So many of us have been brainwashed and trained into not showing our true selves to the world for fear of rejection or reprisal. It is important for our health and well-being to break this indoctrination. It is also just as important to see those around us as equals and appreciate their uniqueness. The differences between us is an art form all unto itself. Our individuality is a canvas…
Like the lyrics in Ray Stevens’ song, I believe everything has beauty. A tree is its own work of art.
A bee is a work of art.
A rain storm or snow storm is a work of art.
What will you put on your canvas? How will you express yourself? Do you enjoy the beauty of your fellow humans? Opening your heart to the world is a grand thing. It is also a scary thing, too. No one likes to feel vulnerable especially in this day and age with wars, disease and cruelty. But, if you take a minute…just one minute and think of your own beauty, the artwork that is you, perhaps, your own personal desire for self-love and greatness could be the one intention that could change the world for the better. Try it.
noun 1. the state or quality of being or becoming perfect. 2. the highest degree of proficiency, skill, or excellence, as in some art. 3. a perfect embodiment or example of something. 4. a quality, trait, or feature of the highest degree of excellence. 5. the highest or most nearly perfect degree of a quality or trait. 6. the act or fact of perfecting.
: the act of making something perfect or better : the act of perfecting something
: something that cannot be improved : something that is perfect
1 : the quality or state of being perfect: as…
a : freedom from fault or defect : flawlessness
b : maturity
c : the quality or state of being saintly 2 a : an exemplification of supreme excellence
b : an unsurpassable degree of accuracy or excellence 3 : the act or process of perfecting
Perfection is, broadly, a state of completeness and flawlessness.
Now, after all of those tidy definitions, the long answer, as an addendum to the short, sweet, ‘no’ above, is perfection can’t exist. To attain it would mean stopping. Stopping everything…growing, learning, experiencing… If true perfection is reached, what is left? Nothing, as sad as that sounds.
I get periodic emails from an Indian woman in Massachusetts that is a Psychic/Akashic Reader. I got a reading from her on my birthday two years ago (boy, was that interesting). The email I got today was about vulnerability. Here is an excerpt:
Have you ever felt so raw inside that you just want to hide in a hole? That the last thing on your mind is being vulnerable? What if being vulnerable opens doors?
There was a time years ago when I was going through a deep depression. The dark night of the soul. I couldn’t function, my emotions overwhelmed me and the desire to even be on the planet was minimal.
I was walking around a my favorite lake in emotional pain and tears were running down my face. So many people looked away, avoided me. I realized then that they were uncomfortable with my imperfections. That I was infringing on their comfort level. Or perhaps they didn’t know what to do. Either way, I was ignored by them.
I almost decided to stop crying, get in my car and go home so I wouldn’t upset anyone. But something inside of me decided that being vulnerable mattered more. This was what I was feeling and experiencing.
A few very kind people stopped and asked me if I was okay. I told them the truth. That I was really sad and that crying helped it release. I was authentic. I didn’t pretend I was okay, because I wasn’t. One woman gave me a hug and reminded me that I would find a solution. I got to talk to her about her life and how she’d changed it. It was a gift, my vulnerability brought me her wisdom and kindness. I still remember her fondly.
What if we’re willing to be so vulnerable that we’re authentic. Ourselves no MATTER what. Real, raw, open.
What if that has more potency than perfection? Perfection is a result (an unrealistic one), where there is no improvement, change, expansion. Vulnerability opens doors and windows to our souls journey and it allows others in. Perfection cannot allow anyone in. If you allow them in while being perfect, your secrets will be exposed. With vulnerability there are no secrets.
Perfection is the high sugar, no nutrition version of being the self. It’s the, let me pretend I’m someone or something so the world doesn’t judge me.
Unfortunately for many of us, we’ve been punished, judged, ignored for being ourselves. That being who we are is a wrong, bad and offensive. Enough already!
As she states, above, perfection is an unrealistic goal. Our culture bombards us with images of someone else’s idea of perfection. Who are they to speak for us? For you? For me? Chasing after the ‘perfection’ that is fed to us on a daily basis via our media is a futile effort. It wastes time and prevents all of us from growing. Blonde hair and perfect teeth are not the answer to all of your problems. YOU are the answer to all of your problems. Quit trying to be someone else’s idea of ‘perfect’. No such thing exists. Expansion and experience leads to more expansion and experience…and just think of the people you will meet along the way. Be YOU and no one else. Anything else is a waste of energy.
At long last, everyone is seeing the change that is taking place in the world. Unfortunately, most only see a move to chaos and destruction. This seeming chaos is the bringing to the surface of all that has been hidden.
As the impetus for change continues to accelerate, situations which have been long hidden and unknown are coming to light in order that they can be dealt with and cleared. Much of what was accepted or hidden in the past is becoming public knowledge and those responsible are paying the political or legal price for their actions.
What we are seeing is the removal of the old as we usher in the new. If we begin to renovate our houses, we must first demolish all that is worn out and unwanted in order to make way for the fresh and the new.
Nobody is immune from this work of restoration. All past problems – personal as well as global – must be brought to light and cleared so that there is the space to propagate and nurture the new. As we approach a new year, the speed of demolition must increase as we are a little behind in our work. Do not despair if your world, or the world at large, looks like it is crashing around your ears. This is only to remove the old and, once demolition is complete, our new futures will begin to unfold in all the glory of the beings of full consciousness we are becoming.
So have courage, always ask questions…. and make sure the bottle of ‘Rescue Remedy’ is to hand.
Everyone who is undergoing change is asking questions. This is one of the questions my wife Di and I are most asked by our clients or those who attend our talks.
Q. Are all illnesses governed by our genes (DNA) and therefore pre-programmed as the medical profession often insists?
A. A very emphatic No. Illness arises from the emotions we express, or do not express, in the situations we encounter in life.
Our experiences in life are guided by our higher elements of consciousness – the ‘Higher Self’ or HS for short. If we do not quite meet the expectations of our HS, stray off our path, the HS communicates this to us by accentuating the accumulation of emotions we have stored away by not expressing ourselves as fully as we should have done.
The best guide to which aspects of our lives we have not fully dealt with are the concentrations of consciousness (soul) energy within the body which we have come to know as the ‘chakras’. Understanding the aspects of life that each chakra works with and the organs associated with each of the seven chakras, is an infallible guide to which area, or areas, of our life we need to pay closer attention to – to bring ourselves back onto our path.
Even doctors and scientists are gradually realising that every cell in the body responds to our expressions of emotion and it is how much emotion contained within a bodily organ that determines how efficiently that organ functions and, consequently, our state of health. It is these emotions and not our DNA that lead this process.
However, DNA does have a role to play. To build the body in the womb requires about twenty-five percent of the gene sequences in our DNA. Once born, we need about three percent of our DNA to grow and develop. All the rest of our DNA is memory. Seventy-five percent of DNA is memories of past lives and, once we have left the womb, twenty-two of the twenty-five percent used to build the baby’s body changes to storing the experiences gained during our current life.
Also, as we undergo change, our DNA is expanding. Over the past twenty-five years, there has been talk of many children being born with an additional four or five strands of DNA that activate at birth (in addition to the usual two). These are the so-called ‘Indigo’ or ‘Star’ children. The extra DNA represents more memory contained within the body and gives these children their ‘advanced’ capabilities. Our full complement of DNA will eventually be thirteen strands to the helix. The same is true for adults. The more ‘demolition’ work we do – the more we clear out – the more DNA we build as the Higher Self downloads more of itself into the body.
The next few years may well be traumatic and we need to put these future events into perspective – they are symptoms of change. The more we accept and work with these changes, the faster we will catch up with our children.

The same applies to you. If your mother did not have sufficient cholesterol when you were conceived, you would not be here.
Cholesterol is one of the most important substances the body produces. It is manufactured in the liver and is needed by every single cell of the body (and brain cells in particular) every single second of the day. If your cholesterol levels drop, you begin to have organ failure, elastic tissue problems and memory loss, as well as depression and, if the level drops too low, aggression, suicidal tendencies and, ultimately, death.
Ever since this cholesterol question came up, I have been investigating it psychically and have not been able to find any real answers. Margarine companies, doctors and some scientific papers all say cholesterol is bad but, when I have worked with my healing clients over this issue, I have never found a cholesterol-related problem in their bodies, even when they have a medical diagnosis of ‘high cholesterol’.
If we put something toxic into the body, the body rejects it and excretes it. Substances produced by the body’s internal chemistry are only what the body needs. In other words, the body does not poison itself. All symptoms of illness are controlled by the higher self and blood problems relate to the heart chakra (see my book Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Your Body…). However, even heart chakra problems do not raise cholesterol levels, especially since you will not find cholesterol in the blood.
At long last, I have found a doctor who talks some sense on this issue…Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con, so this next section is a precis of what Dr. Kendrick has to say.
I purposely changed the title to this post to read differently from the original post from Gregg Prescott at In5D. We aren’t mutating and, technically, we aren’t evolving even though I used that term in the title. We are, actually, returning to what we once were…true humans. We, originally, had 13 strands of DNA and our total soul within our bodies (see The Chris Thomas Files link, above, to find out real human history).
Quote from Dr. Berrenda Fox from the In5D article:
Some adults that I have tested actually do have another DNA helix forming. Some are even getting their third. These people are going through a lot of major shifts in their consciousness and physical bodies, because it is all one. In my opinion, the Earth and everyone here is raising its vibration. Many of the children born recently have bodies that are magnetically lighter.
The Best That It Can Be…
On the face of it, this is a good statement: the positive approach to our life and the way we live it. Why should it, our life, not be the best that it can be? […] We humans, mostly in the West (I regret to say our influence is spreading), have come to believe we deserve the best. We have interpreted ‘the best it can be’ into all aspects of our lives. This means we should aspire to the best house, best kitchen, the best car, furniture, clothes, television, computer, mobile phone and, of course, the best food. […]
How Much Does Best Cost?
The consequences of all of these choices are that, currently, the world is at war over mineral rights, (Darfur is only one example of genocide and destruction based on the greed of the west for a mineral used in mobile phones and other electrical equipment), men and women are used as slave labour to make our clothes, the planet is being carved up and the rivers polluted for the copper, zinc, etc…to go into our newest and best electronic ‘toys’, such as mobile phones, computers and flat-screen TVs. Billions of tons of food is thrown away each year because it is considered not to be the best it can be, whilst those that live in the countries that grow our food starve. […]
A Complete Consciousness
It is the best that we can be, as a human and, as a complete consciousness. The best that we are is not made up of, or lack of, possessions. It is about how we live our lives in relation to the rest of the universe and, in particular, with each other. […]
Think About It
[…] Think about the consequences your actions will have on others and then make the choice that feels right to you. It is your choice and you cannot blame the consequences on anyone else.
Think about it. Are you the best that you can be?
