Dear Joshua,

Abraham says go general when you are trying to raise your vibration but I’ve found that doesn’t work often because appreciating the ocean or whatever is boring. You say, figure out your limiting belief and disprove it but that’s hard to do in the moment. Are there some questions I can ask myself to help find out what the belief is?


Dear Tina,


You are not really trying to raise your vibration per se, you are trying to elevate your perspective. You exist naturally in a state of bliss. This is alignment. In this state, your perspective matches your inner self’s perspective and you feel good. In this state you are more receptive to inspiring ideas and thoughts. This is how you leverage the power of the universe to create the reality you personally prefer.

Something happens and you choose to remove your perspective from the one that your inner self sees and you take on a limited perspective. This is caused by something in the conditions around you that triggered a limiting belief and imposes fear. You perceive some danger and you react. That reaction is also a form of creation. In your negative reaction to the current condition, you set your vibration to that level and you create your next conditions (your future) based in fear.

If you had a choice, you would create based in love rather than fear, correct? When you react to the conditions from a state of love, you are perceiving the conditions as good and right. There is no resistance in that. This allows you to move steadily toward the vibrational version of you that will match all that you desire. You make vibrational progress toward your dreams through feeling good. Yes, that means you have to figure out a way to feel good even if the conditions appear bad. The conditions are not really bad. That is simply an illusion. It’s your reaction and the limiting belief that causes you to perceive that the conditions are bad.

This is a system of guidance that has been established between you and your inner self. If you choose a perspective that matches your inner self, you feel good. Every single time. If you choose a divergent perspective, you feel bad. Every single time. The more often you choose the higher perspective, the easer it will be to become a match to your desires. The more often you resist what’s happening around you, the harder you make everything. If you act when inspired from a place of allowing and love, you act on inspiration and this is how you receive all that you want. If you act on urges based in fear, well these actions will simply take you off in a new direction and you won’t likely be moving toward that which you truly want.

So then, in the moment when you are feeling intense negative emotion and you are choosing a highly limited perspective, how do you return to alignment? Abraham says, go general. That means remove your attention from the perceived problem and place it on something, anything else. If sunsets are boring, watch something exciting. However, if you receive an urge from this lower emotional state of being, you will want to change the conditions. Doing this will never benefit you. The last thing you want to do when in a state of fear is change the conditions. Instead, wait and do nothing. It might take an hour or a day or even a week to return your perspective to a place that feels better. In the moment, do nothing in fear. Say nothing in fear. Resist the temptation to change things. Direct your attention to anything else. If you can’t see how the conditions are actually moving you toward all that you want, because they are exposing a limiting belief, then just wait a bit. If you look, you will find the limiting belief. You might not see it when you are caught up in the fear and the limited perspective, but your natural state is bliss. Eventually, you will return there. Then you can think to yourself, “What was that all about? What was the big deal? What was the fear? What limiting belief was triggered by the event? Is that really true? Is that really true for me? Is it true for everyone?”

The answer will always be no. All limiting beliefs are false. You have them and if you have a desire for something that does not currently exist in your reality, it’s due to the existence of a limiting belief. Now you’ve found it and now you can resolve it. The faster you get back into alignment, the easier you will see it. Prove the limiting belief is false and it will drop in intensity and become less and less limiting. This is the work. This is how you become a vibrational match to everything you want. This is the way to create the reality you prefer.

With our love,
We are Joshua

Dear Joshua,

If I keep vibrating a certain quality or feeling and it keeps appearing through mates that are like my father, same qualities etc.. Is it possible it is my father who keeps coming back through these mates? Can those who have croaked come back over and over again?

I understand you either attract people because you feel that way or you Definitely don’t want anyone like that in your world The later resonates with me.


Dear Trisha,

You have asked a question that will help many, many people and we want to address the entirety of your question as well as the individual parts. First, you wonder if you are attracting people like your father because your father is coming back to this reality in another incarnation. While he may come back if he wishes to do so and he may even interact with you in some regard, he has not come back in that way and would not do so. This would be too confusing for you and he is aware of that.

We will start by saying that everyone you know or have known in this physical reality you also know in the nonphysical. You interact there and here. You make plans for there and here. You love and adore each other in the nonphysical and you come together in this reality to explore various aspects of your relationship just for the fun of doing so. At times you may not think it’s fun here, but you will definitely have a laugh about it from your nonphysical perspective.

You are not attracting your father as a mate but you see certain aspects of your father in the mates you choose. Let’s see if we can bring that into clarity for you. Imagine the personality of your father and how that personality carried forth into the nonphysical after his transition. In physical form he was love, appreciation, tender, hard working, supportive of his family, caring, and many other wonderful qualities and these are the aspects of his personality that he carried with him to the nonphysical. In his physical body he also carried some traits that were in the form of human baggage. He might have been insecure, fearful or worried. He might have been defensive or overly protective. He might have been angry or disappointed. These traits did not follow him into the nonphysical.

So when you are thinking that your mate has some qualities of your father are you thinking of the loving aspects or the fearful aspects? You get to choose. There is only one person in this world you need to love. It is not a mate or a parent, it is you. You must learn to love yourself and from that standpoint of self-love and selfappreciation, you will attract one who sees in you what you see in yourself. If you love yourself, you will attract someone who sees what you see. If you are insecure about your love for yourself, you will find someone who is insecure in your love for them. Until you change how you feel about yourself, you cannot attract anyone, friends or lovers, who see you for more than you see yourself. Love yourself first. Really own it and mean it. Do not love yourself in order to get someone who will also love you, love yourself regardless of what happens.

So how does one come to love themselves. It is simply a matter of realization that who you are is perfect in this moment. We see your perfection and you must come, over time, to see it as well. You are perfect whether you think you are or not. We use the term “perfect” rather than good or worthy because we want there to be no levels in this meaning. When we say worthy or good you can compare yourself to another and believe yourself to be more or less worthy or good than another. In this case you are perfect and there is no room for improvement. All others are perfect just where they are as well. There is nothing you can do to become better for you are perfect as you are.

You can’t be better and then start to love yourself. You can’t be more beautiful, successful, confident, smarter, more spiritually evolved and then love yourself. You must love yourself unconditionally now, as you are and the side effect will be those other things.

Don’t ever compare yourself to others, only compare you to you. Look at who you are now and see the progress from who you were. See your own evolution and see how< much you’ve grown. The you that you are now is ready for you to love yourself. Until you do, no relationship can manifest in the way you want it to.

Are you starting to understand how this all works? Can you see that the mates you attracted were not like your father; they were like you. They loved you in the exact way you loved yourself. They treated you how you treated yourself. They will always think of you in the exact way you think of yourself. They will always, always be a reflection of who you are being.

Your true desire is to be who you really are. Once you do that, you will attract a mate who sees the best in you. They will love you unconditionally because you love yourself unconditionally. It will not be possible for them to love you in any other way. However, if you continue to love yourself conditionally, it will not be possible for a new mate to love you any other way. Your mates will always be a mirror to who you are being. This is the law of the universe and it cannot be any other way.

Fortunately for you, you understand the mechanism of physical reality better than almost anyone you know. You understand more about this stuff than 99% of humanity. You have the tools and the desire to create your own reality. But it’s an inside job. Meditate, appreciate, and learn to love yourself unconditionally. Don’t dream about the mate, don’t hold on to a picture of what a happy relationship looks like. Forget all that stuff. Work on how you feel about yourself and everything will come from there.

It is simple to imagine and become who you really are. You accomplish it in stages.

Stage One: Understand that who you really are is who you would be in the nonphysical. Just as the personality of your father left behind the fearful aspects of his nature when he transitioned to the nonphysical, you must look at those aspects of your personality that you will leave behind when you make your transition. Any though or behavior that stems from love will be carried forth to the nonphysical and any thought or behavior that stems from fear will be left behind.

Stage Two: Act like the highest version of yourself now. Do not fear, only love. Do not protect yourself for that is a stance of fear. You cannot be harmed by words so stop living life by any other standards than your own.

Stage Three: Go inside. Spend time meditating. Communicate with your inner self. Speak to your guides. Imagine yourself as perfect, strong and courageous.

Step Four: Look for signs of growth and development. When something happens that you don’t like, look at it and see the message, the lesson, the new understanding that comes from it and appreciate it. We’re talking about all events, large and small. If someone honks their horn at you or gives you a rude comment, don’t react in the old ways. Look for the message!

Step Five: Focus on the aspects of your life that are going well.

Step Six: Compare the now you to the old you and see how far you’ve come. Never compare yourself, or your situation to another; compare you to you.

Step Seven: Believe, believe, believe. Believe that all things are coming to you because they are meant to come in order for you to expand. Believe that everything that comes to you is right and is part of the journey and the process. Believe in the power of your mind and your abilities. You are more powerful than you know. You are doing better than you think. Come to terms with the you that is and love every aspect that is you now in this moment and in the next and the next.

You are loved more than you can imagine. You are never alone. We see your amazing perfection. It’s time for you to see what we see.
