vibrational universe, thought is a tiny packet or quanta of
energy. Ultimately, the entire universe and everything in it
is a creation of consciousness. Consciousness is the
creative and animating principle, which by its very BE–ing,
creates and then interprets the substance of our material
world. This process is described in the appendix to the book
The Vibrational Universe, and graphically illustrated in
the soon to be released movie “The
Unity of Spirit and Matter.”
then, is a creation of consciousness and is the
quintessential element of the physical world. Of course, an
individual thought is so insubstantial and ephemeral that it
cannot be measured or detected with instrumentation. But
like a flower essence that requires thousands of plants to
make a single ounce, thought evolves and combines, at
unimaginably small scales, to form greater and greater
aggregations. This process occurs over billions of years and
is continuing in every moment. The universe is constantly
expanding! Both physical and non–physical beings contribute
to the expansion of the universe. Both physical and
non–physical personalities have created, and are bound by,
Therefore, there is really no separation between the
physical and the non–physical! We are all in the dance of
life together. All life exists together within a universal
sea of vibration.
vibrational universe, thought is permanent. In other words,
once a thought (quanta) is created, it exists forever. This
principle is expressed in the Law of Conservation of Energy,
which states that energy can neither be created nor
destroyed. Energy cannot be destroyed, but it can be
created! It’s just that that creation occurs on such a
fantastically small scale that it cannot be measured.
as it may seem, thoughts each have a distinct vibration.
When you are angry, you create thought of a lower vibration,
and when you are happy, your thoughts are of a much higher
vibration. On a planetary scale, there exist streams or
rivers of thought; some angry, some hateful, some apathetic,
some inspirational, exhilarating, and joyful. Each one of us
contributes to these streams of thought, and thus to the
overall planetary vibration. We are all responsible for
conditions upon our planet.
Fortunately, non–physical beings create thought of an
unimaginably high vibration. My impression is that the
volume of thought here on earth compared to the total volume
of thought in the universe is infinitesimally small (thank
goodness!) And because the Law of Vibration and the Law of
Attraction operate to aggregate like things together, the
thought streams around the earth stay here (again, thank
goodness!) In other words, if there is intelligent life on
other planets, each would have a planetary consciousness and
a unique set of vibrations that belong only to it.

so only in the sense that the misery which exists is created

for humanity as a whole.

incarnates into the planetary consciousness at a specific
time and place. Therefore, each being is born within a
unique environment that has a unique vibrational signature.
Astrology and numerology are subjects that attempt to
categorize and quantify the vibrational environment at the
time of incarnation. The vibrational environment acts as a
background imprint. Each being, of course, inherently
possesses a unique personality and incarnates with a
specific set of desires. Because a human being incarnates
into a physically undeveloped body with limited sensory
equipment, the local environment (especially the family) can
have a strong impression on the developing personality.
Imprinting is well known in psychology. The best known form
of imprinting is filial imprinting, in which a young animal
learns the characteristics of its parent. Here is the famous
photo of Konrad Lorenz and his imprinted greylag geese, who
would follow him around whenever he wore his hiking boots.
Imprinting also occurs in humans, where an infant will
imprint on its father and mother. According to Wikipedia,
this process is recognized as beginning in the womb, when
the unborn baby starts to recognize its parents' voices (Kissilevsky
et al, 2003). In the Westermarck Effect, reverse sexual
imprinting occurs when two people live in close domestic
proximity during the first few years in the life of either
one. This desensitizes both persons to later close sexual
not a satisfactory scientific explanation of imprinting; it
just occurs and is demonstrable.
perspective of a vibrational universe, however, there is a
specific vibrational impression at the time of incarnation.
If the being has lived previous lives, the imprint from
those lives still exists within the planetary vibrational
that the earth is a living organism is not new. In the Gaia
hypothesis, living and non–living parts of the earth are
considered as a dynamically interacting system, and the
earth herself as a living organism.
Indigenous cultures throughout history have recognized this
concept long before western science ever got around to it!
is that IF you understand that consciousness is non–physical
in nature, THEN individual lifetimes, or EXPRESSIONS are
permanently recorded within the planetary vibrational field.
When a being incarnates, he or she is vibrationally
connected to the impressions of previous lifetimes, due to
the operation of the Law of Attraction. Your energy is
uniquely stamped with your vibrational essence. The more
lifetimes a person has lived, the stronger are those
impressions. Someone who has spent many lifetimes as a
musician, for example, may be able to access his or her
imprint, enabling a leap in ability much greater than
normal. A talented person may simply have lived many
lifetimes devoted to similar pursuits.

friend Tim is maddening to me, for he knew his piano chops

are two kinds of imprints: the background imprint associated
with previous lives, and the present life imprint of our
familial and physical environment. In a vibrational
universe, each one of these is just as real as the other.
of these imprints direct our lives, of course, for we all
have free will. In a vibrational universe, it is always
possible to deactivate one vibration by activating another.
A strong present life imprint, however, can make quite a big
impression on the incarnating being.
Personally, my father made a huge impression on me. He died
in 2005 and I had not lived with him since 1970;
nevertheless, his personality was so strong that I still
have to watch out for impulsive behavior that I can
immediately recognize as The Old Man’s! Interestingly, even
though we had completely different viewpoints on life, our
temperaments were almost identical. I’m pretty sure that I
had a strong vibrational connection to my father before
incarnation, exclusive of any environmental influences.
are vibrational in nature. A strong vibration has a tendency
to entrain others to it, according to the Law of Vibration
and the Law of Attraction. Because imprints are vibrational,
they can be consciously modified. The most effective way to
do that is to find something that really interests you and
do it. A desire is a vibration, a powerful connection to the
creative energy of the universe, and can quickly become so
strong that it negates the influence of other, unwanted,
vibrational imprints. The new note struck on the piano
quickly drowns out the old ones. Remember, you cannot get
rid of something. The more you try to get rid of it, the
more attention you place on it, and the bigger it gets!
Every “War on (fill in the blank)” is doomed to failure.
life, or birth imprints, can affect a person’s life only
when you do not give yourself a direction, and in my
opinion, they are usually never as strong as present life
influences. The point is, any imprint can be transcended if
it is negative, and is only a boost if it is positive. Each
time we incarnate we append another act to a continuing
script, a sort of continuing autobiography that has the
potential to subtly influence us during the next lifetime.
then, is the influence of a birth imprint upon the
incarnating personality. Karma is often referred to in a
negative sense, as if the soul itself were somehow tainted
by the actions of a previous lifetime. But the soul is pure.
All actions are sanctioned, because each one of us is a
divine, immortal spirit and always returns to Native State
after a physical lifetime. No matter how gruesomely you die,
upon transition all negative emotion is immediately
released. That is because a non–physical personality is
pure, and of such a high vibration that nothing negative can
attach to it. This is simply the Law of Vibration and the
Law of Attraction at work.
January’s issue, we discussed the Still Point.
Point is a non–physical creative consciousness (you)
surrounded by the shell of the physical body and the
material world. The physical world involves movement, the
Still Point is BEING. When you reach the Still Point, you
feel a sense of power. That power is your personal
realization of your own creative nature, and it aligns your
own energy with the creative energy of the universe. It is
an awesome feeling.
you don’t REACH the still point, because reaching, or
efforting, or achieving, involves movement! The Still Point
is the natural state of being for any person. How does a
person come off the Still Point?
life can be analyzed as a sequence of energy flows. There
are four energy flows in life: others to you –– the things
that happen TO you; you to others –– the things you do to
OTHERS; others to others –– the things you OBSERVE; and you
to you. These ideas are explained in much greater detail in
The Keys to Deliberate Creation Course.
important energy relationship is You–to–You! That’s because
all of the other energy relationships stem from this
relationship. The You–to–You relationship is your personal
Still Point. What you feel about yourself determines how you
react to others, how others react to you, and even what you
observe –– because you never even see anything that you are
not matched vibrationally with (whether you think so or
place is naturally at the place of power, the Still Point.
However, your observation of life, and its perceived
inequities, injustices, and evils, causes you to react in
ways that bring you down the scale of emotion/vibration. You
forget that you are an immortal being; a powerful co–creator
of your life, and that your fellow human beings are as well.
You allow the actions of others to sully your vibration and
bring you off the Still Point. Notice that this occurs
simply by a CHOICE or a DECISION. No one MAKES you do so.
You do it to yourself. Notice also that a decision or a
choice is not an action. There is no motion, movement, or
reaching involved. It is a state of being. What happens when
you try to regain the Still Point? You take action (like
meditating, doing yoga, reading spiritual books, taking
seminars, etc.) but almost always, these activities do not
change your state of BEING. In short, you come off the Still
Point through a decision, and regain the Still Point through
the other flows in life are directly affected by the energy
relationship of You–to–You! If you have understood this idea
correctly, it should bring you a feeling of power. It should
bring you into a greater connection with YOU –– a

experience in order to express and celebrate himself or
herself in the grandest and most challenging way.
of the universe interface directly with you. Each of us has
the ability to broadly influence the conditions of our
lives. If you imagine the Still Point as your personal
connection to creative energy, you can see that everything
in your life revolves around the decisions you make. Through
your decisions and actions, you control the energy you put
out to the universe, and, broadly, the responses you get
back. No man (or woman) is an island, as John Donne said.
The Law of Vibration and the Law of Attraction always work
to place you in situations that exactly match your current
focus of attention.
Although your personal imprint may effect how talented you
are, and may have entrained certain tendencies in your
thinking and behavior, it is always possible to redirect
your life. That is the beauty of the vibrational universe
concept: it always places you in the conductor’s chair. The
laws of the universe have your back and always work to
reinforce your currently activated focus. Therefore, if you
want a better life, there is no excuse to be the victim of
anything! Find your desire and go for it, even if it’s only
5 minutes a day. The more time you devote to something you
really like, the stronger is the vibration you create around
that, and the more the Law of Attraction goes to work for
