Hi Joshua,

I have discovered your teaching through your podcasts about a year ago and have been a fan ever since. I downloaded your guided meditations some time ago, but did not really get around trying them, for one reason or another. I do have a consistent meditation practice however. So today, as I was working on my computer, listening to random Abraham stuff on youtube in the background, all of a sudden my iTunes switched on on its own and your passion meditation came on. I went along with it, and started getting what I would describe as spontaneous involuntary head movements, a sort of a swaying around from my neck upwards and a tingling sensation on the end of my nose.

My question is : What it this? It has happened before, and it does not feel bad in any way, just surprising, as I always thought this sort of a thing would happen to “better” meditators than myself. I mean I still have thoughts that wander, and yet I get the feeling of an outside presence in my body. Am I imagining this or is this really me connecting to non physical, my inner being, or what? Will it get bigger if I allow it and concentrate on it? I have been consistently meditating every day, save a few exceptions, for about nine months.

Thank Gary for the wonderful work he does allowing you to speak through him and also all the lovely people on the roundtable and the live calls, I really enjoy listening to both of the podcasts.

Best regards, Tina

Dear Tina,

Before Gary found a vibration high enough to reach us, he had felt an urge to meditate for a while, yet he thought meditation was weird and so he avoided it. Eventually, he gave in and bought Abraham’s guided meditation. Within about six months of consistent daily practice, he felt a presence in his head while he meditated. It neither felt good or bad, just very obvious. It was like a hand was moving around the right side of his head, under his scalp and the skin of his jaw. It was something he could focus on and he came to believe that it was a nonphysical being trying to connect with him. He did not know it at the time, but it was our first attempt to create a dialogue. He had to recognize that it was something outside of him, something separate from his identity of self, and then realize that he could communicate with this being (or more accurately – beings).

He knew that this was not a sensation that all people experience while meditating and he also knew that Abraham came to Esther through meditation. He decided to converse with us and soon he was asking us questions. Our answers came back quickly, but since he was receiving thought which felt like his own thoughts, he did not immediately realize that it was from another form of intelligence. He thought it might be himself answering his own questions because the thoughts sounded and felt the same as his other thoughts. But of course they would because all thought feels the same to the person receiving the thought. The sound or feeling of the thought cannot be different than it is unless the perceiver perceives it differently for some other reason.

One day, after weeks of conversation, he decided to ask our name and “Joshua” was given to him. It came back so quickly and firmly that he now realized that he was talking to something or someone outside of himself. Because he knew this had already happened to Esther, he believed that it could happen to others, but he never, ever thought it would happen to him. The fact of the matter is that it is a natural ability that is available to all humans who want and enjoy communication with the nonphysical. You are on the precipice of a similar form of communication. If you enjoy it, you can have it. If you want to ask it questions, they will be answered. If you want to ask its name, it will be given to you. If you want to write what you are receiving, you can do that too. If you want to speak out loud what you are hearing, you can speak it as well as any other channel. Being a channel is not an abnormal ability given to a chosen few, it is a natural ability that’s been discovered by those who are interested and vibrationally ready for it. If it’s something you want, well then, you already know that you are in the vibrational vicinity of it.

The way you interpret the thoughts and translate them into words will be unique to you because your perception of reality is unique. Do not resist what you are inspired to write or speak, just allow it to flow. Do not worry if you feel awkward or if the words come out in a strange way, you will get better with practice. Most of all, allow your beliefs to be open and withhold your personal judgment as to the viability and appropriateness of the message. Whatever you bring forth and however you are inspired to translate it will be the perfect method for you. As long as you enjoy it, you can do with it whatever you like. Whether you choose to share this with the world or keep it to yourself will be right. Either way, you cannot fail, you can only expand as you intended prior to your birth.

With our love and support,
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.
