David, I'm absolutely delighted to have you on the show today.
Thank you for having me, I'm excited to be here.
So we start with some elements of your story, David, that might help paint a picture of the conversation that we're about to have.
It's interesting, because you were when you were reading the bio there that we provided.
tweaked it a little bit,
a little bit. I like it, I like it. And it's it's funny when I hear that back that I was receiving guidance from source because I believe everybody receives guidance from source. I think the difference for me, perhaps, is that I had very disconnected parents as a child. And so I continued to listen to guidance from source because I didn't really have any other guidance going on. And I was more or less left to my own devices as a very young child, really from the age of five or six on my father left, when I was really really young, my mother fought for custody, really fought to cut him out of our lives and then decided she didn't want to be a parent, after two adult and was was just very absent. And I was really left to my own devices. I had older brother that was sort of focused on himself. And I think that the big difference for me, and I've been told that I was I came intending to channel and then I I've done this in other lifetimes. And all of that I don't focus so much on that is the fact that the path laid out for me perfectly, to follow this guidance throughout my life. Although I certainly placed a lot of egocentric obstacles in my path along the way. It's not like I've had this, you know, mystic life, my whole life where it was all that and nothing 3d. It was very 3d, it was very human, very egocentric. Lots of flaws, lots of mistakes. But gosh, you know, I'm 53 now and looking back and every flaw, every mistake, everything that I really messed up and got, quote, unquote, wrong, helped. And it was it was part of the magic of all of it. And part of what allowed me to create the practice for myself, that I now teach to people all over the world that transforms lives. So if I hadn't have gotten parts of it really, really wrong, I wouldn't be in the position to teach that I'm in today. So all of the mistakes, all of the pain, all of the I don't even call it trauma, but a lot of people would refer to it as trauma, all of that stuff was the magic of life. And I continue to embrace that moving forward and embracing it makes the life experiences so much more enjoyable.
If that was a phrase that you use there earlier on that you placed those egocentric obstacles. So do you want to explain that a bit more? What do you mean by you placed them there,
I've come to understand through the streams teachings in the stream is what I call source consciousness that I share for the benefit of others and myself. The stream has made it very, very clear to me and I have a very deep understanding now of how we create both positive and negative in our lives. A lot of times a lot of people are teaching law of attraction it's very popular now people are wanting to really claim ownership of their life experience and and a lot of people hear about that and what they want to do is manifest a lot of money or fame, or you know, experiences and I don't think there's a Nothing wrong with that. But you can't really go about doing that successfully if you don't also take ownership of the other stuff that you create. Because if you're just thinking while I'm going to manifest something, and I'm going to manifest something that I want, and I'm never going to manifest anything that I don't want, why would I do that, then you're really not fully grasping the process of creation, or the purpose of the things that we consider negative. And the tire practice is all about aligning with that source perspective of non judgement. So it's all about taking fear and judgement out of your life experience, and then reflecting on everything that's happened up until you're now without fear and judgement. And you when you really start to peel away the layers of fear and judgement in your history, and you take ownership, it's not about responsibility or blame. It's simply ownership of wow, you know, I understand now that that five years old, prior to that even, I manifested into the path of parents who weren't really interested in parenting me. And there was an alignment there for a journey that my soul was seeking to have here on earth. And I ran across verbal and physical and sexual abuse and all that stuff as a child, as many people do. Nowadays, I'm thinking that most people do have those experiences I thought that I talked to, and how those were manifestations not because I was wanting them or deserving them are, was paying up, you know, some debt for something that I did in a past life, you know, that's it. To me, that's so misunderstood, and in a lot of circles. And when the deeper I've gone into the streams, teachings, the more understanding and ultimately even appreciation I have for all that stuff. And then when you appreciate your transgressors, your negative energy, the things that you hearken back to that were painful at the time, or that you've carried this burden of victimhood with you throughout your life. What I find is people that do that, and we all do it, on some level, you see that kind of show up again, again, and again and again in your life until you clear that energy. And the only path that I have found to effectively clearing it for myself, and all of the people that I've taught, is finding appreciation for it. And that's a radical idea for a lot of people to find appreciation for being abused, you know, finding appreciation for someone that treated you very badly finding appreciation for a serious illness that you've had, that you've you've suffered through. And it's a radical idea, but it's a very effective method to transmute all of that negative energy to something powerful and positive. And when you do that, then you are no longer in that pattern of manifesting these unwanted things in your path over and over and over and over again, it breaks the cycle. And then it allows you to meet your next obstacle, whatever it is, and appreciation. And when you are able to meet an obstacle and appreciation, you immediately raise your vibration. And when you raise your vibration, you connect with your own natural source connection, which is always there. And in that high vibrational space, you have the power to solve anything. So the solving is always in the appreciation of the obstacle, not the loading or the pushing against or the fearing, or the battling. Notice the things in life that we battle, we never really win those battles, they keep coming back around. So the key to really changing anything. Allowing anything that we consider negative to dissipate in our reality is to make peace with it, find appreciation for it, understand how it came to be, from a soul consciousness perspective, not so much our ego perspective, which is very much caught up in the lifetime that we're in believing this is all that is. And there's nothing beyond this. And that death is the worst thing that can possibly happen to us. And you know, all of those belief systems that we create, when we're singularly focused in our human experience.
Thank you, you have seen me nodding all along and smiling because it really makes sense what you just said about we creating these obstacles over and over again until that energy is cleared. 3d makes make sense. I want for me, I wanted to ask you said something in the beginning that
you had the guidance from the source you realise that everyone has that. However, as you very well know, most people are really not aware of that. Can you what why do you think that isn't people are completely disconnected from from that.
The stream has shared that humanity In our development, we have separated from that and driven a lot of negative things in our in our lives and our experience, to ultimately grow to the place where we are now. Meaning, we went through a period of social engineering, society, building religions, governments, you know, people tell us society telling us how we're supposed to think how we're supposed to live, how we're supposed to behave. And there is a long period of time, in fact, all of recorded history is that is recorded history of wars and rulers and emperors and kings, and, you know, the forming of religions. And, you know, certainly the dominant religions of the world, you know, believe what we tell you, or we're going to slaughter you, you know, that sort of thing, you know, beating people into submission, literally. And the the negative of that, obviously, is that it took away our natural desire for freedom and joy, which we're all aware of, we all want to be free, we all want to experience joy, we all want to experience what we want to experience. That's our natural state of being, but the negative of that the pulling us into villages and societies and in placing us under control and teaching us that that we are not source, that source is something else that's in the sky that's judging us, and, you know, controlling us, and supposedly loving us, but then allowing us to suffer. And as a child, I was taught that I was I was raised Christian. So as a child, I could never put those pieces of the puzzle together for myself and never really made sense. In my own inner knowing, was contradicting what I was being taught in Sunday school, I ultimately was kicked out of Sunday school, simply because I had too many questions. They couldn't answer my questions. Just get out, you don't need to come back, it's fine. go to church and sing and go home, and you'll be good. So the questioning of all of that stuff led me to my own belief system. And my own belief system was my inner belief system that we are here to experience freedom and joy, that the social engineering that brought us together, and allowed us to create the technology that we have the institutions of education and, and these things, all of that is a very, it's a 3d creation of contrast, but there's positive in it. There is positive in social engineering, the bringing people together, you know, for commerce, and bringing people together to create more human beings have a certain religion, or nationality, or whatever it is, you know, all of that control stuff, did place us on a path to be able to create all of the things that we enjoy today. So that's the positive of it, the negative of it is, you know, people were, we're living a very beautiful life. And in prior generations, were very at peace with that. But as time has moved forward, and in the last few generations, we've sort of created so much, and we've been able to get together and communicate globally, and sort of compare notes and realise, well, gosh, maybe we don't need all this social engineering. Maybe we don't need to be told what it means to be a male or a female, or what it means to be, you know, successful or not successful or what it's what life is supposed to look like, why can't we figure that out for ourselves? It's like, we've come through this period of social engineering that serve the expansion of humanity. And now we're sort of waking up from that and realising we don't need it so much. You know, one of the most interesting times that I had was when I was in my mid 40s, I moved from Seattle, Washington to San Francisco. And I moved into this building right in downtown San Francisco's a brand new building. It was a pretty expensive building as everything is in San Francisco. I think the smallest studio apartment was like over $4,000 a month. And the building was packed with 20 somethings and 400 plus apartments, and my 40s I was one of the oldest people in the building that lived there.
I was the old man in the building. But I really came to appreciate, you know, this, this interesting building full of 20 somethings, excuse me and 30 somethings perhaps they were all very entrepreneurial. They're very international. There were people living there from all over the world. You know, they came to San Francisco to live the dream of starting their tech startup. Somebody was paying their rent I don't know who but starting their tech startup and they all worked for themselves they ran around in sweats and pyjamas you know, all day worked in the building. We had office space in the building and stuff like that and I was going off commuting to a corporate job the old fashioned way. And a lot of people I'm a Gen X are and a lot of Gen Xers you know, we always complain about the younger generation, right? I remember being complained about too when I was younger. You know, though this is stupid kids. They just don't know and they're doing this. They're doing that but I thought very differently. I had great appreciation. I'm like wow, you know, here I am getting in my car, driving around. hour each way to something I don't even like to live in the same building with these people that are half my age, that are loving what they're doing. And they're not bound by country, they're not bound, you know, by traditional lifestyle at all. And I just had great appreciation for that. And I realised that we are all born up to speed with the time that we enter. So people that are born now are going to be born up to speed with the vibration of now. And this this group of millennials, they were born up to speed with the time they projected in, that's why they are more tech savvy than I am. And I am certainly more tech savvy than my father and I was much more tech savvy than my grandmother. And my father is much more of the type of person who lives a traditional life. He takes every pill that every doctor tells him to take without question. You know, he's been married to the same person for 40 years, he worked for the same job that he hated for 35 years, he saved his money to retire, he bought a house, he paid it off. And that's where he lives, you know, very traditional lifestyle. Yes, in my life hasn't been that. And I realised that Every generation, we are creating this, this more open minded scenario, that the ones that are born into it automatically come pre equipped with that, and whatever the vibration of the day is. So as we move forward, we are getting wiser in many ways. Now, that's not the same as wisdom of experiencing life in 3d. But why is there in the ways of the universe, understanding our desire for freedom enjoy, and that we don't have to be bound by the country that we're born into, or be bound by a set of teachings, such as religion or culture that we're born into, we don't have to do that. We can disrupt all that. And I think we humanity is disrupting that. In fact, I think that's why we've had the pandemic. Because we've wanted so much to disrupt that old 3d way of thinking, and break free of all that. And I think in the in the last year, I've been teaching to boot camp for three years. And it just exploded in the last year. People are questioning people are wanting answers people are wanting to make peace with with their journey. And that explosion is just a sign that that people are ready for a different way of operating their lives.
I will go back to something you said earlier on, it was very interesting about the religion and your Sunday school that you were asking too many questions reminded me of that phrase that says that religion tells you what the truth is what our spirituality allows you to find your own truth, which is I think it's a very accurate phrase. Actually, I wanted to ask, What does spirituality the term mean to you, David?
I think it's become a big tent, I definitely see people that claim spirituality, but then sort of fall back into some old religious patterns, rules, right? spirituality is, in my opinion, is aligning with the non fearing non judgmental, high vibration of source, which means there are no rules. There. There's nothing being projected in from spirit. As far as how we're supposed to operate, and 3d physical, we're here own our own, operating the way that we choose to operate, because we are creating expansion for the universe, in our new creation. But we're only motivated toward new creation when we experience pain. So everything that we create, isn't it is an answer to something that we once found painful in some way. So we wanted to be able to travel we didn't want to be bound by you know, land. So we created modes of transportation, we want to be able to communicate. And thankfully, during this pandemic, we've had the ability to communicate via zoom and things like this. So we can communicate like never before for humanity, we can travel like never before for humanity, at least this version of humanity that we're aware of. And in that ability to travel and communicate. We are coming together like never before and coming to understand that there are 3d rules, human created rules, laws, religion, things like that. But universal law, Trumps all of that. Universal Law is the universal process of creation. A lot of people refer to it as a law of attraction. That's part of it. But we also talk a lot about vibrational flow. Because our vibration is not static. This energy that flows through our world And ultimately flows through us, takes us on this, this journey sort of up and down this this vibrational spiral, if you will, and we're all aware of it. So sometimes we're up and we're happy, and we're trusting and we're believing and we're feeling good, and we're confident about the future. And there are other times for no specific reason, perhaps, that we are less than that, or even further way down from that, and down in despair and fear and all of that. And then we realise that we can shift our focus and sort of get a handle on that, that our focus very much impacts that and certainly impacts the experiencing of it. Because I've moved into a phase in the tire practice now, because I've been practising it for a while, that when I'm down the spiral, so to speak, you know, down, it's not the way it used to be. It's not this time of, you know, fearing and doubting and beating myself up and, you know, God, life is terrible, it's I've transmuted all of that to just appreciation and trust. It's not as good feeling as when I meditate, or I appreciate or I do some activities that, you know, really take my vibe super high, that's fantastic. But obviously, we're not meant to stay up there at the top all the time, we sort of go through this flow. But I have learned that if you're not fearing the downward spiral stuff, not fearing the low energy time, you can keep your trust of the process while you're down there. And the reason we call tie a tie, it stands for trust, your abundance, which really comes down to trusting the universe, to pamper you, trusting the universe to always take care of you, even when it seems like it's not. And I have proven that to be true. And I've taught hundreds of people now to prove that to themselves as well. Because when the obstacles arrive, and we allow that obstacle to send us, you know, racing down our spiral, and we're all stressed out, and we don't know what to do, and we think it's the worst thing ever, that's just low vibration. It's just an experience that we've created for ourselves based on our judgement of the experience. Whereas the obstacle arrives, we sort of zoom out to that source perspective that we all have access to really zooming in, but we like to call it zooming out, and take the judgement and the fear out of it. And you can instantaneously see something with more clarity. So something happens that shocking, and you know, disrupts you a little bit, how you react to it from there is really your conditioning, even the shock of it initially is your conditioning. And we have the power to change all of it. And I do mean all of it. You know, we've talked a lot lately, we've had people that have suffered what we would most people would consider the worst aspects of life. You know, I have a couple of different people that I've worked with one whose son was murdered, and another whose son committed suicide, and she found him. And we have worked to even transmute that. And I use those extreme examples. Because so often our lives in our bubble of reality, we think, well, gosh, I just lost my job. That's the worst thing ever. Nope, I will never forgive that, or somebody really wronged me, you know, they stole my money, or they harmed somebody that I love. And I could never forgive that. But we have worked on forgiving and even appreciating the what many consider the unforgivable
because again, it's all what we're told to think and how we're told to react. And it's the current vibration of humanity to sort of dip into that victim vibration. But the problem with that is, is that when you're in the victim vibration, you're giving all your power away. And when you're in the victim vibration, you are setting yourself up to be victimised yet again in some way. We all know people who systematically are victims, they're always sick, or they're always broke, or they're always being treated badly by someone or they're always in conflict with someone. And when you're outside of that looking in, it's easy to see how they attract it. But when you're mired in it, and that is your vibration, and you are the one conjuring it. It's very hard to claim ownership of that stuff. And I understand that. But just allowing a little bit of light and a little bit of the idea that your life is your creation. And perhaps getting a handle on how you go about creating more intentionally will start to change these these very painful aspects of your life that seem like they're chronic. So it really is kind of wrapping your arms around all of it, claiming ownership of all of it. And ultimately, finding the silver lining in every single human experience. Even the things that you consider awful. But don't start with the awful You know, every time we do a summit The first thing is people will come in and ask the stream. Well, what about the mass shooting? It's like, well, let's just rip the band aid off and go right there. Why don't we, when I watch it back, I always think it's entertaining but they answer it beautifully. You know, and if you will Allow yourself to absorb the mindset to absorb that consciousness, it starts to come into focus. And for many of us, it just takes time for that to come into focus what that means to, to have appreciation for every human experience. And it's very much rooted in understanding that we are all eternal beings, that nothing that's happening here on planet earth is going to end us. Our consciousness is eternal, and we know it. You know, we know that our consciousness is far more powerful than these delicate bodies that we operate in. And we feel it and we feel the power of collective and you can read vibrations on people and you meet somebody, if you're really open, you can read them, you can feel them right away. Well, that's not physical. Love isn't physical. You know, there's plenty of non physical aspects to our lives that we can acknowledge. But then to start to think of that energy as being eternal is a hard leap for a lot of people. But to get into this belief system, it's important that you manifest your path to understanding your eternal nature, I think it's very helpful.
That's amazing. And, David, I would like to ask you about the stream, actually, because you mentioned it a couple of times. And
can you tell me, how do you mean it? And when you say that, the the knowledge has been shared to you by the stream with the or the guidance? Can you just explain that in simple words, for me to understand?
Certainly, I recall very early, I used to talk about 1980, to remember really understanding the law of attraction. But really, prior to that, I remember around age five or six, my parents were sort of lower middle class, we lived in this sort of blue collar suburb outside of Houston, Texas. And this friend of theirs came over and she just got this new car. It was a really fancy car at the time, it was a Lincoln, which back then was a really fancy, you know, luxury car, but guess it still is. And it was the nicest car I've ever seen. And ever since then I have been a car fanatic. I love cars. I think they're beautiful and fascinating. But I remember looking at this card had all these shiny buttons, and it had a sunroof, I'd never seen that before. And she was so proud of it. It was just such a cool thing to see and smell. And it was just great. She drove away. And then my parents started saying negative things about her, you know, oh, what did she do to get that all that sort of stuff that people do, and they're judging other people, right. And then they said something to the effect of they will never have anything like that. And I remember distinctly and this, my father left when I was six. So this had to be even a little prior to that. Thinking you could have anything that you want, what are you talking about, you can have that anybody can have that. So that's, that's the first little thing that sort of set me on my path. And then my father left, my parents got divorced. Our financial situation went from not great to bad. And, and I was raised in a single parent minimum wage household. My father went on and married, somebody else had a hold of the family who had money, he didn't really do a lot for us. You know, my mother worked for minimum wage, and that's what we lived on. So the the experience growing up was very poor. And my mother really didn't have interest in having children. So she was physically and verbally abusive toward me. But I there was something in me that felt worthiness and felt that even though my mother told me that I was useless and worthless, and she never wanted me, even to the point when I was a teenager, she told me to kill myself, that there was something in me that said, No, don't listen to that. This is her. It's not, you know, it was an inner voice. And we all have that. That inner voice, the more she pushed, the more that inner voice sort of emerged until I was 14 years old. 1982. I remember telling my older brother that I had created this thing, I thought it was my creation. I ego, that if you believe that you are something, you will become that thing. And if you believe that you have something, you will have that thing. And I just knew that it was true. And I thought I created it. And my brothers thought I was nuts, told me to read my Bible. He's very religious to this day. And I remember moving forward by the time I was 16, I had a brand new car and I had nice clothes, and I had all the material stuff in high school that the rich kids had, even though I was not one of them, but I had it all. And to this day, I can't really you know, it's interesting how it all came to be but you know, it's just magically was was just brought to me. So I lived like that. And I lived like that through my 20s and into my 30s. I live in a very financially abundant life with lots of stuff. And so I proved to myself early on that even though I didn't have a formal education in fact, I didn't have a high school education. I was dyslexic, my mother didn't care whether I did my homework or not, I didn't get past a 10th grade, and went to a GED when it was time for me to graduate, and never had any other higher education after that, but I was very curious, I taught myself I felt worthy. I knew that I could be abundant in my life. And I was, I was a corporate executive, I earn lots of money, I live in a beautiful house had all the nice things are supposed to have in this life. And then I got into my early 40s, and realise that I had really only singularly focused on the financial well being part of what was being offered to me, I didn't want to hear about making peace, I didn't want to hear about loving myself, I didn't want to hear about my mother, you know, understanding my mother on a higher level, even though she had stopped speaking to me in my early 20s, I never spoke to her again, for the last 20 years of her life. And I really doubled down on the the financial and material aspect of it, until my life got so uncomfortable, that I realised that, gosh, you know, I have all the stuff still not happy, what's wrong. I've got the big house and the fancy refrigerator and the nice cars, and now you know, the beautiful furniture and the clothes and the, all the things and still, you know, it's nice, but I'm really not happy with myself. And that's when I really started listening to it. And I really went deeper and understanding and I started meditating for the first time, I never really meditated. I spent time in silence, which is the same thing. But I never sat down and intentionally meditated. And when I did that, I had what a lot of people call a Kundalini awakening, this energy erupted at the base of my spine. And it was, it may have been the first time I meditated It was definitely toward the beginning of it. But I remember the day and the experience very clearly. Because it was like, you know, holy crap, what's going on with me, you know, this, this energy just emerged. And to this day, I still feel electrified, I feel at my face, I feel at my fingertips, I feel at the tips of my toes, my knees are big receptors for some reason of source energy. And it's just a reaction that my body has to allowing that source connection to really wake up within me. And from that day forward, I started listening to all of it. And that's when I realised that I needed to find appreciation for all that stuff that brought me to that place. And when I started doing that, it was essentially what I now called D tuning, D tuning my father D tuning my mother D tuning my childhood transgressors.
You know, at that point, I weighed about 300 pounds, I was addicted oxy cotton, I had chronic back pain. I was in a bad relationship, I made a whole lot of money, but I was in a job that I hated. And I needed to unwind all that stuff. And so I spent the next 10 years unwinding all of those things. And toward the end of that period, I quit my job that was sort of the last frontier for me to give up my fancy title, you know, that I wasn't supposed to have with my lack of education. And I had to give up the fancy title and the salary and walk away. With no plan. I had the streamer David podcast, I started that in 2017. And I published my first book, the stream in 2018. And I didn't have a plan. But my intention was to teach people this practice, because I realise a lot of people are out there teaching law of attraction. And when I would hear those teachings, they rang true to me. But I felt like these teachings aren't going deep enough, at least they weren't deep enough for me. I wanted to teach people that, hey, I've been there, I've manifested the money in the stuff and it's great, I still love it. But it's not everything. You got to love yourself and be happy first. And then have the experiences in life that you want. And so much of our, our training, you know, the idea that we have to hoard money and own things. It's all fear based. You know, I've learned to just open up and allow experience after experience after experience positive and negative, without judgement. So it's not this, I call it the Instagram version of life where everything's perfect all the time, you know, the most beautiful house and the most beautiful partner, the perfect body and the nicest cars, the most beautiful travel, it's pretty look at that stuff. But I'm never going to put that out there is all there is to my life. Because that's not true. The the the negative things that happen in my life are some of the richest things that I can talk about. So I had identity theft in 2020. And in the middle of actually 2019. And the first thing I did was one of my podcasts and talked about it, you know how I these people systematically took over my phone and my bank accounts and my email, they just took over everything at once. And I was held helpless. Because if you don't have access to your cell phone, you don't have anything because you can't get back into your bank account and nobody knows who you are. Nobody believes that you are. So it was so brilliant. And I I promise you that you immediately went and found appreciation for it. Because in the first few moments of fear and frustration, I realised this isn't going to work. I'm not going to solve this by being stuck in Fear and frustration, I'm gonna find a appreciation for it. And I just started thinking, gosh, you know, these people put a lot of work in to take my identity. And they did it brilliantly, systematically, the perfect time of day. It was the perfect time, day and time. And I could do nothing about it. But just watch my accounts get drained. And I really found appreciation for it. And it was solved within a couple of days. So, you know, that's, that's how I operate life now is not expecting perfection. But definitely writing that that flow of vibrational flow and the down isn't bad anymore. The down is just down. And it's not negative. It's not dark, it's not evil, it's just down. And then when you're in that flow, that way, you can really see through the eyes of source and when you see through humanity through the eyes of source meaning no judgement. Life is very different. Talk about going from what people call 3d to five to eat, you know, to me, that's what that is. Yeah.
That's truly fascinating. David, tell me also about the the channel in which you which you mentioned earlier, I would really like to find out more about that book.
Yeah. So that was that was sort of a very long answer to the question that didn't fully answer it. So I apologise. But that's not the story. But I
really appreciate I enjoyed your answer as
well, just to give you a shorter summation of all of it. So that's what the stream is, is that level of knowing and accepting the my sharing it was something that after that Kundalini awakening, I had already been to psychics who had told me, so I always knew that I was different, especially when I got into being a teenager, I really had to hide that aspect of me. And then going into my 20s and 30s. I really kept it hidden. I didn't want to be part of it. I judged it. I thought it was weird. I didn't want to be weird. I wanted to be quote, unquote, normal. So I kept all that stuff hidden. And that was part of my discomfort and disconnection with my life. One of the reasons that I was creating suffering for myself, is I kept my authentic self hidden out of fear of being judged by others. So I'd gone to psychics try to figure out what was going to have always been a self taught person. So I went to psychics to figure out what was going on with me. And I had a psychic Tell me, you are a channel. And she pulled out it was Abraham Hicks, you know, pulled out abraham hicks and said here, you do the same thing that they do, and I didn't want to be part of it. till years later, I discovered abraham hicks in a very miraculous way. And it really rang true to me. And then when I realised that I really needed to set that aside, I was guided to not continue following anyone else, and really go inward for the stream to be the stream. Because Abraham's message is perfect. We don't need another Abraham, we don't you know, there's no not going to be a carbon copy of any teacher because every teacher has their own value in their own set of teachings that work for their audience for their alignment, right. So I have shut all that off, so that I allowed the stream to be its own thing. And that's where I started sharing on my podcast in 2017. But before I could do that, I didn't have this. The miraculous experience for me was the Kundalini awakening in 2010. After that, as I came to terms, with what channelling meant, that this inner knowing was something that was external for me, but part of me too, that I could share that for the benefit of other people. I was very inspired by Esther sharing of Abraham, she made it seem not so weird. All the others seem kind of scary to me, she made it seem not weird. So I thanked her in my first book for that we actually have a mutual friend. I have not met her, but we have a mutual friend that we both talk to periodically. So the channelling was something that I taught myself to do, because the knowing was automatic, it was already there. But getting into the mode of speaking it was something that I taught myself to do for a little while, and then it just sort of took off. And once I started the podcast in the beginning, it was very forced, it's those original podcasts are still out there. Very forced. It sounded very choppy. And then the more I shared it with other people, the better I got. To this day, when I channel I still stutter a little bit and things like that will happen because there's so much to all the information just comes at once. And my consciousness, my human awareness, I'm present, but it's like I'm stepping back and allowing something else to speak through me. And some people call that trance channelling. I don't really know what it's called. I just know how to do it. And I'm aware of it. In the moment, though, when I'm finished channelling I have very little recollection of what was shared. So my memory of it is spotty. Sometimes some of it will come back to me later. Some of it at the very end, I might remember a little bit, but a lot of it I don't remember while I'm doing it and then I'll go back and watch it and the way that I have confirmation that it's not just part of me is that the information is so deep and so profound makes so much sense once you hear it, and is way beyond my intellect. So they say they use my intellect and vocabulary, obviously, I need to understand what we're talking about to be able to have that type of conversation. But they say things that that make sense to me that I would have never thought of, I would have never thought of these things that they teach the way that they teach them. But once you hear it and accept it, it really makes sense. It's the most logical thing I've ever heard about the the nature of humanity, and good and evil, and our purpose in life and all of that stuff. They answer all those questions.
That's fascinating. Do you have any, any kind of control over which kind of information you will receive? What I'm trying to say? Is that can you pose a question and wait for some answer, or is it completely up?
Yeah, there's a couple of ways that I can get into a conversation mode. And what I have to do in my mind, is for it to make sense, because when I'm speaking, it is just downloading, it's, it's a lot easier to just do that, when I'm by myself, I actually create this mental picture of sitting around a round table. And I actually create characters under the sounds crazy, never told me by this before, I create characters around this Roundtable. And they don't really have faces, because the stream is not dead people. The stream is source consciousness, original thought, and we're all part of it. I create characters in my mind, I can create visuals in my mind very easily. So I create this sort of roundtable in this this dark room that feels very sacred. And I can have a conversation with them. And it feels like I'm in a room like I'm on one side of the table. And there's, you know, this group of people, but it's way beyond that, and I get that. But for me, that helps me get into conversation mode. But I also have a little thing that's that's developed over the past few years. I used to use a pendulum. And a pendulum, of course, is reading your vibration. And anybody can experiment with the pendulum and find out what their yeses and their notes are really cool thing. If you haven't tried it is sort of a training wheel type thing, right? Oh, pendulums are cool, you can ask and get get into high vibration. First, you don't ever want to use a pendulum until your vibe is really high. And then just ask it to show you Yes. And ask it to show you know, and ask some questions that you already know the answer to and it's reading your vibration. But when you're in that high vibrational state, that's also reading source. So it's a cool training tool that anybody can use. I haven't talked about this in a long time either. So it's good that you brought me down this path. But I can get yes and no in my body physically now. So unless I'm really down my spiral, and I don't have access to the stream to source, because I'm cutting myself off from it, I can ask a question a moment and get a feeling Yes, on the left side of my body and a feeling no on the right side of my body. So as long as my vibe is in check, I know that's good information. My vibe is not in check. That can be detrimental information. And we can get that's a whole other topic that we can get into. But it's because you're cut off from your source connection, and you're getting vibes from ego and probably mixed with some other energy that you really don't listen to.
Thank you. And what fascinates me even more than what you just said is you were telling me earlier on before we started recording that you can easily or fairly easily get into that mode. Or the other way you call it a different version of another version of David.
Is this something that you'd like to demonstrate in the jerky is for me the listener?
Certainly. So what we'll do, I guess the whole water. So what we can do, I always invite everybody to do a little meditation with me. I bring them in and even your listeners that are listening to this in the future can do this little quick meditation. And it simply is taking a few deep breaths through your nose, relaxing yourself, quieting your mind as much as you can. Don't Don't beat yourself up. If you can't completely quiet your mind. It's okay and set an intention to have an amazing interaction with stream. And that's all you really need to do is be very general and just having a very positive experience and then you will bring that in
We are here.
We understand that perhaps you have some questions for us.
Yes, I do actually, I was thinking how can I How can I be able to spread this message to much more people that it has been going so far
we guide you first to understand that the idea of quantity is a very 3d if you will, very egocentric idea, the the the the quantity of people that are finding your message, ultimately is is not nearly as important as we will not use the term quality because that sounds judgmental, but the alignment of the people that are finding your message, the ones who are ready for what you have to offer. And understand that human beings are impatient by nature, you are expansive beings, you want to get things done, you want to create, and you're dipping into ego, and allowing your ego to get out of balance with your eternal consciousness, your version of this that drives you to become impatient. And that drives you to self sabotage, that drives you to tell yourself that little voice that chimes in when you're in that state, that not enough people are following not enough people are listening, not enough people are absorbing, yet you have so much to offer. Understand that, pulling the judgement out of all of that, and celebrating the one listener, the one who is who is being enlightened, the one who is being forever changed with what you have to offer. And really focusing on that focusing on the collective of everyone that you are interacting with as if it is one, even if it is one. And celebrating that will create that vibration, that energy. And that vibration will reverberate and attract more who are ready for the message. And the more that come in, in that high vibrational alignment, even if they come in, in what you would consider a slow fashion, the more powerful the messages becoming. And the more you are actually offering all of humanity even if it's not showing up in terms of physical listeners or followers, it's creating that high vibration of appreciation for what is is always the key to expansion. From there, view the journey as magical and perfect, and exactly what it needs to be exactly what it should be. Because when you're dipping into judgement, that's going to lower your vibration. And remember that the universe only responds Yes. So if you are frustrated, at lack of growth, the universe is going to deliver more frustration. If you are frustrated at the the small number in your opinion of followers or listeners, you're going to get more of that. Whereas if you're celebrating whatever it is, and you continue to do your work in joy for the joy of it, putting it out there regardless of the quantity of listeners or followers. You are going to ultimately craft a message that will expand because you are not frustrated with it you are not measuring it in a 3d way. You're not letting your ego cloud the the progress that you're actually making vibrationally and when we speak of ego it's important to understand that your ego is not a bad thing or is a good thing. Your your ego is your human consciousness and balancing your human consciousness with your eternal soul consciousness is your optimal mode of operation if you will, as a human being. Balancing these things you allowing your ego to motivate you to put a message out and into to do things of that nature that is your ego. But when your ego is out of balance then you are judging and you are fearing. And you are not appreciating the vibration that you are putting out whether the the the ratings are showing up or not.
Wow, that's profound. Thank you, thank you. I can, I can begin to imagine how it must be when you have this kind of profound insights come in to you or through you all the time, you want to thank you indeed, because this was
it spoke to me on many levels or in more depth that I was expecting it to be. And it showed through, I get completely the whole point of the journey appreciation, celebration of what is
versus their expectation, the the ego shows the external expectation of X amount or that quantity, as you said, Thank you for that. That's fantastic, appreciate. And understand
that you attracted this interaction with us. We do not guide David to only attend large audience gatherings, to share this message. This isn't about filling a stadium with boring fans. That there is there is satisfaction in that but that satisfaction tends to be short lived. We are here for the one as much as we're here for the many in the This message is is is landing and perfection to exactly the ones who are ready to hear it. And that includes you, you attracted it.
I certainly have is this I will take the opportunities and then ask one one more question if I may. And us general in broad us It might sound good would be a great next step.
A great next step for all of humanity. And this includes you is to embrace the idea that there is no real suffering in your world. That all suffering is created in the judgement of the experience. That everything that you encounter in your your 3d world meaning in your physical vehicle, your body. Every part of it is an experience, a physical experience, that you as an eternal being very much wanting to come to a physical environment to have all of it, including the things that you may judge as painful,
as a setback, as not enough. All of the judgement around all of those experiences actually hold you away from the joy and expansion of the experience. As David shared before we came in fully we were around the the human experience of pain and suffering and even separation from the death experience. You have all been programmed in 3d. To believe that that is bad. Yet it's something that you all experience. So if you are projecting in and you are moving through a life journey, and you all experience suffering, you all experience an ebb and flow of energy and in what you consider abundance. And you all ultimately experienced the separation from the experience and that what you call death. How could any of that be bad? It is only bad. Because you are taught to focus solely in your ego. You were taught to focus solely in what you call 3d. It this this is an easy thing to absorb because your ego consciousness your humaneness serves to overshadow the eternal wisdom that is available to you so that you can have this life experience and experience pain and be motivated through that pain to create something new in the form of a solution and ultimately expand your being and contribute to the expansion of the entire universe and expanding your being. By creating the solution, all new creation is expansion. So any creation, even if it's simply focusing on something in a higher vibrational perspective, that little bit of shift of emotion as a reaction to something that you've created for yourselves, that is new creation, that is as much new creation as the creation of a new aeroplane, or a new village or a new world even is all new creation that springs forth from the idea of need. But that is a 3d idea. And we are here to tell you that humanity is ready to step into a new operating system, where you no longer judge the things that you used to judge as negative or awful or evil or bad. And that will be the key to the solving of them. The things that you push against in your world stick around and you know that you notice these things, these unwanted things that come back again and again and again and again. Yet there's a never ending battle. But there is there is control and even commerce in the battle. So the battle will rage on until humanity learns to stop fearing. When humanity learns to stop fearing you will shift focus and move into a much higher gear. In fact, you already doing that. That is that that little bit of shift and focus of the mass consciousness created what you call your pandemic, and created this sort of rewriting of how you were operating your lives. But only focus on on the fear aspect of it, the negative aspect of it will prolong the experience of it. But there are more positives that can be taken from what you call your pandemic, the negatives. But if you turn your news on and pay attention to that, you're going to mire yourselves in the negatives. And we are not guiding you away from necessarily watching your news. We are guiding you to watch your news with the eyes wide open. Understanding what is being offered an understanding that even though it's being offered, you do not have to absorb it in the way that you were being told to absorb it. You can step back and you can discern from a higher vantage point. What you want to include in your opinion of reality. Because your opinion of reality is your reality, it creates your reality. Notice that you can shift focus, you can all do this, you can all go back to an experience that you had when you were younger. And maybe not one that you consider particularly traumatic as a first attempt. But go back to an experience and view it from a different angle. view it with forgiveness, view it from a more benevolent angle, take yourself out of the victim role, perhaps, and rewrite that story. It's still happened. But it happened in a very different way. It happened perhaps for you rather than to you.
And when you rewrite that little piece of history, you change the vibration of it. And when you raise the vibration, meaning more clarity, less judgement, less fear, on any topic, you raise the vibration around it. If you do that systematically in your lives all the way back to as far as you can remember, and perhaps even before that, you start raising your default vibration. You get lighter, you become more joyful. And then you're allowing have more joy, you receive more clarity. things make sense to you the way they have perhaps never made sense before. And you then as long as you don't allow yourself to dip into the judgement of where you are on your path against the number of years that you've been on it as many of you tend to do, don't slip up and do that, then you will gain great clarity on everything that's occurred and ultimately find appreciation for it. Then suddenly, you're flying high, then suddenly, you are up enjoying clarity much of the time, not all of the time, but much of the time. And when you find yourselves in joy and clarity, and no longer needing the 3d trappings of abundance. That is where your true Abundance flows, including the material things of your world. There's nothing wrong with the material things. There's nothing wrong with your wanting to experience them. Just don't expect them to ever cover up or make up for the lack of joy and clarity, because they never will.
can I just love that is what we have.
Thank you, David. Can I ask you some quickfire questions as well to start wrapping things up? You said earlier on that you don't remember the conversation or Is that is that the case? Right now with what we said? What?
remember some of the things I don't remember much of it. No, I remember at the end, they were sort of popping out. I think asking Another question I do. I wasn't aware of that. And I think I think the the intention was set that you would ask the final question, and they didn't give you an opportunity to ask a follow up. But that's there's a reason behind that. We'll figure out at some point,
shortly, that's absolutely fine. with that. I would like to ask you some quickfire questions as well, which I always ask my my guests. And the first one I start with is was What does personal development mean to you?
getting clearer and clearer and clear on your purpose in your life? Because as long as we have a purpose, as long as we're expansive, right, so as long as we are expanding, and moving towards something in purpose, we have that life force flowing through us, and we're unstoppable. And we have that flowing.
And if you could go back in time and meet your 18 year old self, what would you tell him?
I would, oh, gosh, I wouldn't want to tell him anything. Because all the things that manifested beyond that ended up being perfect for me. So I would say stay on the path that you're on, it's gonna work out just fine. One years or so.
But here's the thing, and there was something that was said that you're in the channelling alien. And that was the word impatience. And I got that very well.
I understood that very, I'm very impatient. I have to really still catch it my business dealings, I can be very impatient.
Yeah, it's just thinking about it, you know, impatience and enjoying the enjoying the journey or not on the same side,
right? You got to really balance it. I'm a type A, so I want to do a million things at once and have it all work. And you know, I have all that going on. And but yeah, you have to balance it, or it will take you out for sure. It'll take you down.
Let's say you had a magic wand, then you could change something in the world today. What would you change?
I don't think I would change anything from the perspective of everything's happening in perfection, and all of the unwanted things that we encounter out, you know, the ego side of me would love to say, I would just wish everybody would get this, you know, I wish everybody would understand that. Feeling like a victim keeps you a victim, and you all have power to to be and do and have anything that you want. That's the ego side of me, though. So in my balance side, it's like no, that's you got to stand in appreciation of the journey of all beings, regardless of how you want to operate your life. You know, our judgement of the experience of others, holds us away from joy and doesn't offer them much of anything.
Thank you. And David, emerging from this conversation we had today, if you're to give to the listener, one actionable item, they can start implementing straight away. And what would you tell them?
I think the one actionable item would be
allow yourself to find appreciation for all things. And don't start with the most difficult things, start with things that that are annoying to you, and then move into more difficult topics. But learning to find the silver lining for everything and understanding that going back into your past and doing that cleans up that energy as well. And that's a lot easier to do moving forward.
Awesome. Can you share with us how can people connect with you and find out more about this truly fascinating work that you do?
