One On One

  • Arnaud Question #1


    So, I have been pondering what my first question would be. I have been an avid listener of Joshua's teachings for some time now. Discovering the way the universe works has become a bit of a passion. Yet, I still feel like I have barely scratched the surface. I am ok with where I am and I realise that the fun is in the discovery and in the expansion. Yet, sometimes I can't help but wonder why my reality doesn't shift more quickly. My take is that, although I believe these laws to be true on a cognitive level, I haven't quite surrendered myself to them yet. I am holding back. So my question would be, how can I release that resistance, and have more trust in the universe? Is this what this one-onone experience with you is all about? Where should I begin?

  • Arnaud Question #2


    Thank you very much for your answer to my first question, which I think sets the tone perfectly for the start of my one on one journey. It is true that I have an idea of the life that I would prefer to live and that, on the other hand, some of my beliefs are in conflict with this vision. I think that my perspective on abundance, for instance, will be a theme I will be exploring with you in depth! I've had contrast around this and there is still more to explore and fears to overcome...

    I absolutely love your answer, thank you! It has really put a smile on my face and given me the perspective I was reaching for about the lottery. I do consider myself to be very lucky indeed to be where I am now!

  • Arnaud Question #4


    I love movies and I once dreamt that I was at the premiere of a movie that I had written the script for and Ryan Gosling was the lead role. In my dream, we were best mates at the premiere. It was very vivid. I can still feel his arm around my shoulders as he is waving to a delirious crowd with his other hand.... perhaps this could be a vision I could shape into a reality, who knows?!

  • Arnaud Question #5


    Thank you for the last answer. Combined with the live call, I actually felt the physical sensation of relief last night after a day of feeling stressed. I could glimpse how that resistance was actually necessary for me to close the gap and increase my faith in the universe that I do create my own reality. Funnily enough, you said on the call that a cold could be a sign of resistance leaving the body, and I woke up this morning feeling rough, with a cough and a sore throat, but I do feel great on a soul level.

  • Arnaud Question #6


    I had a big a-ha moment reading your last answer and being confronted with the fact that I live a resistant life for feeling that I have strong desires that are not manifested. I know I can savour and milk those moments when I am in bliss sipping wine in my garden, or feeling freedom when I am roaming the streets of Rome by myself on holiday. But I also do feel like I have unfulfilled desires on a lot of subjects (money, job, relationships, everything really, haha!).

  • Arnaud Question #7


    I am most definitely up for learning to focus and manage my vibration to glide through my fears and allow my true desires to come to me. After all, the energy that I have already invested in discovering this tells me that this is an aspect of reality I intended to explore. And explore it, I shall!

  • Arnaud Question #8


    Thank you for your last answer. Beside the overall message, every answer seems to have at least one nugget in it, usually a phrase or two, that plays on my mind for hours, if not days. It is thrilling...

  • Arnaud Question #9


    A short question: are there ever any fears (beside the rational fears that keep us alive) that are worth keeping?

    Read More

  • Arnaud Question #10


    I often think that my reality reflects my own lack of worthiness. Or is it my fears that reflect that perceived lack? And then I ponder the abstract nature of worthiness. It almost seems to elude me like a slippery eel.

  • Arnaud Question #11


    On the subject of self-confidence and worthiness, I would like to discuss the issue of relationships with people who seem intimidating to us, for one reason or another.

  • Arnaud Question #12


    I'm curious to get your perspective on the fact that I never seem to be able to have any money left in the bank from one payday to another. No matter how much I intend to, things always get tight in the last few days of the month. Why is that and how can I change this?

    Read More

  • Arnaud Question #13


    I feel like there is something I need to dig deeper and grasp about the notion of belief. For instance, I "believe" what you tell me, and therefore I "believe" that I create my own reality and that I am a magnificent, limitless being of pure positive love and acceptance. The reality I currently live and perceive, however, says otherwise, and I'm ok with that. I am where I am and I know I am expanding everyday. But my point is that I think I am confusing "knowledge" and "belief". So, could you say that a "belief" is actually a manifestation of "knowledge", first as a feeling and then as a reflection in your physical reality?

  • Arnaud Question #14


    Last night I was inspired to watch a very interesting talk on YouTube about the "feel good" hormones: endorphin, dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin. In a nutshell, endorphin makes you feel good to cover pain. This is why I feel good after the gym. Dopamine is the hit you get when you reach a goal or cross an item from your to-do list. It is also created by consuming alcohol, drugs, checking our phones for messages, and gambling, and it's very addictive (which explained why I'm sometimes compelled to play online slot games!). Serotonin is the good feeling of safety we get in company, friendship, etc. And finally, oxytocin is the rush of pleasure we get from empathy and doing a good deed for someone.

  • Arnaud Question #15


    I had an excellent manifestation event around abundance today, and I am excited to share it with you to get your thoughts and perspective.

    This morning, I woke up and managed to get myself out of bed early enough to do a meditation (I do it in the evening otherwise). I was pleased with myself and feeling good. After the mediation, I picked up my phone and, for some reason, was inspired to check my bank account.

  • Arnaud Question #16


    I appreciate your last answer, which resonates with what I was feeling intuitively. I seem to be constantly alternating between the new and the old approach at the moment. I feel a bit like a chameleon on a gingham cloth.

  • Arnaud Question #17


    A random question has just popped in my head as I am eating a pizza in a restaurant: is our higher self gender neutral, and do we choose our sexuality before we come into physical, like we choose our bodies?

  • Arnaud Question #18


    Back in May, I thought I started to channel a stream of consciousness that I called Isaiah. I did a few question and answers with them, and enjoyed that process. However, there was always a part of me that didn't quite believe that I was really channeling, so I kind of neglected that a little bit (although I think I have conversations in my head). It is something I am really keen to rekindle and develop, though. Today, I went back to these questions and answers that I had written back in May. And I was really stunned and surprised by how much it resonated with me. Much more that it did at the time after I wrote these answers. So, I decided to give it another try today...

  • Arnaud Question #19


    The work reception in London last week was a great success. Nothing went as planned in the afternoon leading to it, but rather than lose my cool and panic, I focused on keeping my alignment and going with the flow and it all came together in the end. Just as I had pre-paved it…

  • Arnaud Question #20


    Your response to my last question was very stimulating (in fact I got goosebumps reading your last two answers). I look forward to having a clear connection with my inner being/millions or whoever is knocking at the door. I realise that this is something I have been desiring for some time now, so feeling like I am on that threshold is super exciting. Since Sunday I have been continuing with my usual meditating routine, setting my intention to have that clarity of communication and to allow it to happen. I have felt these physical sensations again, but not quite as vividly as the other day, and although I have tried to communicate in my head, I don't feel like I have had a clear connection yet. I understand that this may take some time as I am fine tuning my vibration and allowing it to rise, letting things happen organically. I have a sense that putting too much effort into this will actually introduce some resistance and slow down the process.

  • Arnaud Question #21


    Your last answer has helped me to refine my last question to dig a little deeper, thank you! (and sorry to insist!) I understand that I am attracting and receiving thoughts, and that all thoughts exist as potential. What I think I am reaching for is how do I distinguish a thought that comes from infinite intelligence from one that doesn't? Do I just rely on my emotional guidance? For instance, when I read the answers that Gary channels from you, I feel resonance and implicitly trust that they are aligned with Source. I think that whenever I sit down or quiet my mind to receive a message, I have this expectation to be wowed by its depth and resonance. Have I got too high expectations? Do I need to chill a bit?

  • Arnaud Question #22


    Thank you for your last answer, which was rather illuminating. It did strike some chords!

    Here's a paragraph from a book by one of my favourite writers (1Q84, by Haruki Murakami) that I was recently inspired to re-read. I came across this excerpt this week: "Tengo decided to discard the manuscript he had written thus far and start a brand new story from scratch. He closed his eyes and, for a long time, listened closely to the dripping of the little spring inside him. Eventually the words began to come naturally to him. Little by little, taking all the time he needed, he began to form them into sentences."

  • Arnaud Question #23


    The other day, as I was watching one of these nature programmes on TV, a question started taking shape in my head which I will try to formulate now.

  • Arnaud Question #24


    I have noticed that it sometimes (well, most of the time) it takes time to get in the flow. There is like a warm up phase between the moment we start an action, and the moment when it feels like universal energies are carrying us. When you go for a run, for instance, it takes a few miles to get into the zone. When you write, it usually takes a bit of time for the ideas to click into place and inspiration to flow. I can think of many situations when I have felt this buffer of time.

  • Arnaud Question #25


    Two days ago I was inspired to ask a question around passion. I was walking through the train station and someone was playing on the piano that has been positioned there for the public to play on. The people playing are not always good players, but it's a fun thing to have in the middle of a public space that people can use to express themselves.

  • Arnaud Question #26


    I have just spent two days at a corporate event where internal teams gather to brainstorm ideas, discuss strategies and all manner of business things. A part of me takes pleasure in the human aspect of meeting with colleagues face to face rather than interacting by email all the time, but if I am totally honest I felt completely remote of the whole thing at times and had a strong sense of "I don't belong here" or "this is not what I am meant to do".

    Read More

  • Arnaud Question #27


    Thank you for your last answer. I realise I see glimpses from that answer, but don't see the full picture yet, quite as clearly as you depict it. It has inspired a follow up question. I have been facing another manifestation event at my work in the past couple of days.

  • Arnaud Question #28


    I feel like I have been asking an awful lot of questions related to my work lately, so it's about time I widen the net a little.

    Read More

  • Arnaud Question #29


    Lately, I have been making conscious efforts throughout the day to reframe my thoughts, not just when I encounter a manifestation event, but every time I have just expressed or thought what I realise to be a limiting belief. I have a strong intention to identify those moments when I perceive the conditions to be controlling me, to affirm to myself my power as a creator and my magnificence. I feel like I have been quite successful and it's helping me to feel more confident.

    This is going to amuse you (do you get amused?), but last night I spent the evening with a real life mountaineer. Not just any mountaineer either, one who made history by climbing a face of the Everest for the first time in the 70s. He is now a seventy-odd year old man, but there is still something in his frame that inspires physical power, or what you would expect the attributes of a good mountaineer to be. During the evening, someone said to me: "what I would like to know is how you grow up to climb Everest? How do you get to that point?"

  • Arnaud Question #31


    A week or so after this, that sensation came really powerfully and I was inspired to reach for my phone and record what I was inspired to say in case I was channeling (like Gary does with you). I recorded a couple of minutes of fairly general but loving messages. Since then I realise that I have not really felt that sensation in that same way again and not tried to record anything.

  • Arnaud Question #32


    I truly appreciate your words of encouragement. The idea of creating something spectacular and push myself beyond what I feel are my limits now is very, very exciting. When I wake up every morning I try to make it my first thought to remind myself that I am worthy, magnificent and limitless, and that all my power is within me. I wallow in the bliss of the comfy bed with those thoughts before starting my day. I don't necessarily feel the change from one day to the next, but if I look back one month or two months ago I feel like I have evolved a lot.

  • Arnaud Question #34


    There was no way denying it. This morning (and quite late into the afternoon), I was in a real funk.

    My cold had transformed into sinusitis so my head felt like a magic cauldron... I took paracetamol and could deal with that. I have been appreciating my cold and the fact that it allowed me to get some "me" time at the weekend and got me to work from the comfort of my home yesterday.

  • Arnaud Question #35


    I am at the end of a few very busy weeks at work. I realise that I create my reality and that what is coming to me is a perfect reflection of what I am vibrating. I have two choices at the minute, either to accept everything that is coming to me as perfect or to feel negative emotion and resist it. I must acknowledge that I do feel negative emotion at the moment, in the sense that I would prefer more ease. I feel like I am spinning plates whilst running in a hamster wheel on one leg. And I fear that I am going to drop these plates one after the other and make a big mess.

  • Arnaud Question #36


    When I compare myself to just a year ago, I realise that my productivity, and perhaps my sense of value, has increased exponentially. But, as you pointed out, it's also a question of not letting conditions limit or define me. I don't think I'm quite there yet, as I have knee jerk reactions to the fears of the people around me, and my own fears, to try and fix things. I would love to be a match to 40% Arnaud, but do I get there by just processing fears and changing my perspective. Is my mental self talk enough to change my perspective? I have been having these glimpses lately of "seeing" or "knowing" (not sure how to describe it), that it is all within me. Is that a sign of a shift?

    Today is my first day of holiday! Hurray! I am thrilled at the prospect of relaxing, seeing my family and doing next to nothing but going with the flow... This morning when I woke up I felt pain in my lower back and the first thing I did as I got up was walk on the head of a nail that was slightly sticking out of a floorboard plank in my bathroom. It was not too bad, but still enough to draw a little blood, and cause pain and discomfort. The timing of this, when I have walked hundreds of times before into my bathroom, must mean something. What is this all about? Is it just a reflection of the marathon few weeks I've just had and the resistance I have accumulated during that period? Or is there an underlying message too?

  • Arnaud Question #38


    I hope that, like me, you had a great Christmas. On Saturday, just two days after I arrived back home in France, I found myself almost completely stuck with sciatica. Probably the inflammation of the back pain that I was starting to feel a couple of days prior. As you highlighted in your last answer, I took it to mean that I needed to slow down. My mum and I had planned on going shopping but I stayed at home instead, reading, relaxing and doing a couple of meditations. Amazingly, the pain was almost completely gone the next day and didn't bother me at all throughout Christmas.

  • Arnaud Question #39


    I thought about what you recommended I look into regarding the correlation between the "back pain" and the "pain of going back". I realise I am a different version of myself when living on my own from when I am back at the family home, so, in that respect, I am being a less authentic version of myself with my parents. When I am going back home I also feel like I am going back into an environment where fears lead to judgment, and controlling conditions is the norm.

    During my holiday, I realised that every time I was thinking about returning to work I had a little pang of dread in the pit of my stomach. I could just have dismissed it as the usual case of "January blues" or "holiday blues" but I thought better of it, and felt like I needed to address this manifestation event to adopt a better feeling perspective.

    I was wondering this morning about your perspective on the power of visualisation and how it can be best put to use. Can visualisation be a tool to magnify the power of intentions?

    Fortunately, the heavy mood I was feeling at the start of the week has lifted fairly quickly and I have been feeling pretty amazing for the past few days. The kind of feeling good that is like a radiating energy around my body, just by being. I love being in that state. It really does feel like I carry an aura around me, and I have had all sorts of positive manifestation events that validated this state of being.

    I mentioned in a previous question that my boss had suggested I apply for a position at the company she is moving to.

    Initially the thought was exciting, and after doing a bit of research about this new organisation a few little fears came up. Nevertheless, I pushed past those fears and applied for the position.

    I've been around the block a few times with you on the subject of abundance. Last night, I took the decision that I didn't want to "explore" this theme anymore. In my head, this meant that I was going to create a reality where I know and expect abundance to flow and always be there, and never give it a second thought. What this decision entails is what I would like to dig into a little further with you, based on what I have learned.

  • Arnaud Question #45


    I have read your last answer a few times, and it has given me something to chew on over the past couple of days. I am not sure I have grasped all the subtleties of what you were trying to say to me, but I am coming to feel very grateful for these moments of frustration (around abundance or any other subject) that irretrievably lead to increased focus and more clarity.

    On the cover of a trade magazine that I receive every month at work, I noticed a woman that bore an uncanny resemblance with Sade, the famous singer from the 80s. So, I showed the magazine to my colleagues, saying: "Don't you think this woman looks like Sade?" The first couple of people I asked this question to replied that they didn't know who Sade was. So, I joked that they must be too young. Finally, one of my "older" colleagues gets to see the cover and agrees with me that this woman is indeed a convincing lookalike for the singer. Then, I googled Sade to show her picture to my "younger" colleagues, and they, in turn, admitted that the degree of likeness was strange. So, to cut a long story short, we spent a fun moment speaking about and focusing on, Sade.

    I had a question about relationships pop up in my head during my meditation last night. How come we sometimes feel more closely connected to friends than to close family members? What are the energies at stake in those relationships?

    I have finally booked the land cruise and feeling exhilarated! I imagine that this feeling of exhilaration is changing my point of attraction in the now, and therefore the path I'm on?

    I find the fears that come up when I consider the change are quite easy to process and overcome. The way I see it, this is a new platform from which I can practice my skills as a conscious creator and the challenges are hugely exciting. This is the perfect opportunity that matches my increased vibration.

  • Arnaud Question #51


    Tonight, on the way back from work on the bus I was doing a little experiment. I often do some empowering self talk during the journey and this evening I was inspired to try and conjure a specific feeling. Just for the sheer pleasure of wallowing in it. I love architecture and the sight of beautiful homes always inspires me this idea of ultimate bliss, of living in a pure non-resistant state of constant awe and merriment. You have already told me in one of my earlier questions that this was the feeling of worthiness, that I was trying to validate with the wish of manifesting a great home. But, tonight, I was approaching it from a different angle. I was only interested in manifesting the feeling without ulterior motive, on the basis that, since I am self contained, I already have access to that specific feeling and therefore should be able to manifest it. I played with my imagination, focusing on what this would feel like and I managed to amp up the feeling to a certain degree. I had that radiating sensation from my sternum of well-being and a certain lightness, although it probably wasn't quite as strong as I had intended at first. Nevertheless, it was fun and enjoyable, which was the main thing.

  • Arnaud Question #52


    Why is the topic of sexuality still so taboo in our society and why is it so difficult to discuss it without fears, with people like our parents for instance?

    I personally am very private on this subject. On the one hand I tell myself the story that this is no one else's business as long as I feel good. On the other hand, I sometimes wonder whether by adopting this attitude I am masking fears that need overcoming in that respect.
