Samuel: Well greetings, dears.

Greetings, Samuel.

S: Well this should be fun. How are you?


S: Aye? Feeling sort of close? I’m not quite used to having you so close that you’re not having to look from afar, but are looking like this. Aye, and that the platform becomes a part of your footrest. Well, is it comfortable?


S: Aye, you’re in spitting distance you know. And do you like the chairs?

Oh, yes.

They’re great.

S: Think they feel better?


S: Aye. Kinder to your behinder? I don’t know how to match back, so it was easier the other way. Let’s see, what would you say for that one? Don’t stack, but good for your back? Maybe not. Say [it].

That doesn’t sound very kind.

S: All right, you have had a month, and within this past month since we were last together doing this, you should—and I mean should; you know I don’t like to use that word too very often, but it’s fitting right now—you should be able to say that you have noticed extremes—you think so?—particularly . . . I say particularly, but that might be my perspective and not yours. So I will simply say, along with extremes you have also seen the beginning of that which has been hidden being made known, that which was put away coming forth once again. You have started to see that.

You have also noticed at least two—I’ll guarantee you two; three is what you should have noticed, and more than that is gravy—major issues in your life that you know you need to take care of. Got them in mind? One, two, nine, ten, eleven? And, if you let yourself think about it, you may see a reflection of those personal issues in the world.

My dogs are here. Good.

You may see that issue of yours showing up in the world.

Now does anybody have an example they’re willing to give of that one, just so it can be clearer and make a little more sense, what I’m looking for? “I’m not clear at all,” so let me try it this way. You may be noticing, for instance, that you are being particularly—let me look around this room and figure out what would cover the greatest amount of people—moody. Moody. Sort of as in . . .




S: Crabby. Crabby?


S: Irritable, yes, that’s the word I’m looking for. Crabby is not an emotional thing is it?

Yes. It means irritable.


S: That’s what I thought. Well, I suppose that would make somebody irritable wouldn’t it? We hope that you who are getting this streamed are enjoying this, because one more time it’s not going to be able to go to . . .

The TV.

S: Cable TV, that’s right. Colleen says it’s all right. It may go on cable.

So irritable. You may have found yourself being moody, irritable, maybe even—dare I use the word?—aggressive—and I don’t mean aggressive as in asserting yourself kindly. And you’re seeing that right now in your world too, aren’t you? Can you give me an example of where there is moody, assertive, aggressive behavior?


S: Well, the Middle East, of course. You have Africa. You have Asia. You have Europe. You have North America. You have South America. I think that Antarctica is all right right now.

The ice is melting and the polar bears are having a hard time.

S: [Whispering] There aren’t polar bears in Antarctica. Penguins. Penguins.

Penguins! That’s right, not polar bears.

S: Now, it’s sort of scary when I know that.

And the science teacher didn’t.

Oh, well, still so much to learn.

S: That’s right. Things are changing all of the time, and your mind was moving back, back, back to that time before the great polar shift, when it was palm trees and water skiing.

Oh, I remember that part.

S: Aye. Or not. So did that give enough of an explanation that you can sort of relate that that’s one of the things that you’ve been seeing. And just to remind you, what I asked you to look at was [that], within your own life, amidst those extremes, there were a certain amount of things going on within your own awareness that you were seeing in the world.

So, to go back to that before the long explanation, are you seeing how that is also showing up? And the reason that I encourage you to look at that, is because when you’re seeing it, that’s telling you, “I’m in the flow.”

“Oh, wait a minute, Samuel, I don’t want to be a part of that flow.” Yes you do. Energy’s energy, darlings, remember that. It doesn’t matter, in the biggest of pictures, whether it is easy flight over the top of the daisies, sprinkling fairy dust as you go. I know, you laugh, but some of you get really cranky when it’s not like that. And the bad news? It’s not ever like that. Or, that more assertive version, that more “in your face” version of life, but either way, you are experiencing that flow because you are in the middle of it. You are not being pushed to the side. You are not being oblivious. And most important you’re not living your own version of how it is and should be, letting the whole world and your compact with it fend for itself, you are out there in the trenches living. And as you are out there you are going to be seeing the patterns of change in the world, and because you are out there, you are going to be changing, and being a Guardian that means you will see the change going on in the world through the eyes of the change you are experiencing yourself.

So how has this last month been for you? What have you been learning about yourself? What have you been looking forward to? What new things have you been learning? How have you challenged yourself of late? What are you doing to consciously promote peace within yourself. I know, you’re raising your hands. I’m not asking for answers. This is just the appetizer; it’s not the main course. It’s the “I’ve got you, right now, in front of me and so I’m going to punch a few pins while I can.” Voodoo, but with your etheric body. It was a joke. You don’t really have an etheric body that is separate from all the rest of your bodies, and you’re sitting on it . . . in it, something like that.

One of the most important things you can be doing outside of . . .


S: Very good. Outside of toning is every day to remember it’s always about change and the way that you respond to it. You accept or you reject everything in your life, and there is no middle ground. It attracts. It repulses. Maybe you would rather think of it in those terms, but that’s all there is here. There is no middle ground. Energy functions here coming to you, running away, which leads me pretty well to talk about relationships tonight, since it is February. Oh, come on, that was a much better joke than that. I’ll try it again. And everything here is like that. It’s coming to you or running away—let’s talk about relationships.

We’re too irritable.

S: I think so. Maybe everybody needs to . . . what is this doing?

Wiggle your toes.

S: Needs to wiggle your toes. Really.

We’re running from the pins.

S: No, no, no, no, no. All right. All right. The things I’ve got to teach you. The most basic version of physical awareness. Now, the body workers in here, surely you already know this one: just for a moment stop yourself—and if you’re watching this, you stop yourself as well—and even if you are wearing quite tight shoes, which is really a shame because you always want your feet to breathe as much as possible since so much of your energy flows out through them. But, even with shoes like that on, wiggle your toes. Wiggle them, wiggle them, wiggle them. Just make them wiggle. Are you? Are you? Aye. Now, two things are happening to you. Who can tell me what they are?

They’re getting warm.

S: You’re getting warmer, well, that’s good but that wasn’t one of them.

Blood’s circulating.

S: Aye, well that probably would go with the getting warmer.

Stimulating some acupressure points.

S: Probably, but that’s not exactly where I was going either.

My awareness shifts to my toes.

S: Yes it does. You see sometimes it is the most obvious thing. Your awareness goes right to your toes and you focus on them. You focus on them, and you are creating a movement while at the same time you are listening and looking around and paying attention in several ways. That is a very important victory that you need to be aware of.

Now, remind me to go back to why being able to wiggle your toes and do other things is a very important victory you need to be aware of, but what’s the other thing? It affects your awareness, your wriggling your toes; what else does it do?

Focuses on your physical.

S: Focuses on the physical. I sort of will leave that to . . . again?

Changes your energy.

S: Yes. It has a dramatic change in your energy, particularly—wiggle your toes again—there you go, wiggle ‘em, wiggle ‘em. Do you have toes to wiggle? Can you do that? Wiggle your toes. It changes your energy. Two ways: one of them is you relax a bit. Just that smallest bit of activity takes your wildness down a level. And there are times in your life that it might be really handy to know that you might have to go off by yourself somewhere for a moment. Or maybe not. Maybe your shoes are thick enough that you can stand there wiggling your toes and nobody will know what you’re doing, except for you, because your energy’s just getting brighter and happier, and you’re feeling better, and it’s just running all through you. Oh, I think that’s a lovely idea, yes. You should only do it in public and never get caught.

It changes your energy by loosening you up a bit, and if it’s in you, it’s going to make you smile. If it’s in you. Now, whatever would I mean by that? If it’s in you.

Well it resonates with what’s already there.

Maybe it brings you back into a childlike mindset.

S: Works. Works well. More. Just that, if you’ve got a need to smile and you want to smile, you start wiggling your toes [and] it’s going to help push it right up on to your face. And you were going to bring me back now.

To why . . . the focus so you can multitask. Well, maybe that wasn’t it. The focus so that you can do a variety of things at the same time.

It’s a victory.

S: Why it’s a good thing to be able to do that, to know that you can move your toes—wiggle them, wiggle them, wiggle them—and pay attention to what’s going on around you and see different things, and all keep up at the same time. And why is that a useful thing to be able to do? Remembering what we just said it does, the type of focus that it brings you, the question might answer itself. Anybody want to give it a . . . top layer? Don’t go deeply with it. Aye, love. Back to my world.

I’ve always been in your world. It gives conscious awareness into something that you want to consciously create, even though it’s a very mundane thing. Any mundane act can be spiritual by just the consciousness we put into it.

S: Every act is spiritual; some of them aren’t overwhelmingly mundane at the same time. They’re all spiritual though. Yes, because what you are giving yourself permission to do is to act on a physical, an emotional, and a spiritual level all at the same time.

“Now, Samuel, it sort of makes sense that we’re doing that all of the time if indeed everything is spiritual, right?” Well, yes, that’s very true. How well do you know that? And that’s why I give you the exercises, to remind yourself. This is the night I take aim, right?

Sling shot material.

S: That would be you who are without sin. Just carry it around with you, just in case. I’m pretty . . . what would you say? Matthew, I might need the word of a younger person to help me with this one here. I’m really . . . excited . . . happy . . . charged . . .


S: Juiced.


S: Jazzed. I’ll just go with the middle-aged versions then . . .  this year. And I do think it’s going to be a very interesting show.

Oh, really?

She says with great trepidation.

That’s right.

S: Ah, yes.

Always just gives us enough, you know, gives you something to think about for the rest of your life.

S: Well, it’s not such a bad thing is it.


S: No, no, no, no, never that.

There are treasures waiting for you to dig deeply enough to find them. Treasures in the world, and I hope the very best of all, in you. In some ways the world tends to back away from exploring oneself. It’s so easy to get caught up in the eight thousand things that must be done today that you never had time to just stop and wiggle your toes, which is sort of different than just smelling the roses, isn’t it? Unless, maybe, your toes smell like roses. And sometimes you get so caught up in the drama of it that you forget that all of this matters so little. So many of you in here, in this room right here—look around, you’ve got a lot of like selves sitting around—so many of you in here have said, “But Samuel, you’re not living in the middle of it! None of this is important to you, but it’s important to me! It’s my life after all. And, by the way, I hate it when you make fun of me in front of everybody, because everyone knows you’re talking about me.” And, of course, I always am.

This is a good year to be merciless with yourself. And I don’t mean merciless as in haul out the sack cloth and ashes, and I don’t mean merciless as in making everybody else wish you’d get off your spiritual path because it’s so unpleasant for everybody around you. You laugh, but you know a whole lot of people even Guardians—all right, truth is a whole lot of Guardians—have a tendency to think that if they’re not suffering, they’re not doing it right, because everybody’s having such a hard time, and if you’re having a hard time then that means you’re just really working through the hard stuff, and peeling through those onions, and . . . and you know what I say? [Gives Bronx cheer] Get a life, not mine.

You have in front of you a year in which a lot of opening and not so much closing, a lot of starting to see the results of what you have been doing—that’s the one that should scare you; I mean that. Karma is—I don’t think I’m supposed to say that. Editing. You spend a whole lot of your life fooling yourself, and now and again the door opens up with such a bright light, you cannot fool yourself any longer.

Now, I am dancing across the top of the planet with absolute joy with that one, but I know that that’s going to be a little bit hard for a few of you. So what I would like to recommend is what I’m talking about tonight. Not just getting a life, but specifically getting a relationship. “Wait a minute, Samuel, hold up! I already have one. I do not need another one. Everything I could possibly need for anything going on in my life in any possible way is met through this one relationship right here.”


S: Scary, gracious it’s dangerous.

And it’ll never happen.

S: Actually, it does happen.

Does it?

S: It does. It’s usually called dysfunctional abuse, but it happens. You’ve got a martyr, you’ve got somebody willing to make them one. Well, I know you’re laughing and you’re thinking that’s the funny part of the night, but that’s really not the funny part. The funny part is that everybody seems to know it but you.

Get a relationship. Get a relationship, yes, it would be nice if it was a relationship that absolutely could and did cover all of those pieces of your life that you don’t have covered. Did you get the trick there? But what I’m encouraging you to get a relationship for is one thing. Indulge me. What do you think it’s for? One thing. I am encouraging you for this year, a year in which you are going to see change on every aspect of yourself reflected out in the world, in which you’re going to be experiencing good power. I suggest you get a relationship. Stuart.

Well, I was thinking about the time of the year of Imbolc would be particularly a good time to begin a relationship that may grow into something, you know, terrific throughout the year, but this would be the time of those first stirrings, the first creation energy for building a new relationship might be springing forth.

S: The sheep are starting to sniff the air now and again. It’s not one of those that really translates well here, now, is it? It just doesn’t quite get there. I am saying . . . what kind, Harvey?

Keep you awake or conscious.

S: I like that. I like that a lot. It fits in in a very good way. Kathy. Heidi.

Basically a relationship with ourselves so that we can connect more fully with Source.

S: Well, I understand why you would say that, but no. Although that too would end up being a part of it.

A relationship that takes us out of ourselves so that it’s not all about us.

S: Well that’s very important. How about I just get to it? One that makes you laugh. Laugh. Who laughed today? All right, now, hold up, keep that hand up there, you laughed. Now, having said that, when I say laugh, I’m not saying, “Ho ho ho [guffawing] that was funny,” I mean you laughed until it freed your heart. And look at all the hands that go down. Good for you. For those whose hands are up, good for you. And realize—stop that!

I’m still laughing.

S: Now, Vernon, if you’re going to sit in back of Suzie, you’ve got to thump her now and again.

And when I say laugh—well, let’s back up for a little bit—I’ve said to you that you need a relationship for a reason, and amidst those reasons—there were a lot of pretty good reasons in there—amidst those reasons were such things as because there’s going to be a lot going on in the world that you will gain strength from by having somebody there to share with you. Somebody said that, right? And another reason would be because during this time in which the world is changing so much, it helps stabilize yourself. Somebody said that too, right? And somebody probably also said that this is a particular year in which, with as many big changes going on in a worldly sense toward the completion of Sacred Status with absolute clear and “cannot stop it; that freight train is out of the station, baby,” it would be really handy to have somebody to share the delight with. Somebody said that, right? I thought it was you, Bonnie. With that, you need in your life a relationship, because this is the month of . . .

Valentine’s Day.

S: . . . Valentine’s Day, which has to be one of the most cosmically hilarious jokes in the world. “Oh my darling, I love you as much as Valentine loved those couples that he went ahead and married, and then they stuck little arrows in him from all of those little fat babies that had wings, because they were genetic mutants, and somehow that makes me think of showering you with candy or something like that, and bringing you flowers.” That’s right. Doesn’t that just sound so romantic? It’s a holiday celebrating the martyrdom with bow and arrow. Really. This isn’t my joke, this is yours. The martyrdom of, perhaps, a priest who refused to follow the edict of a corrupt government—I’m liking that already—who, unfortunately, said that it was better to marry—to make the sinners be married; to marry them—but you marry somebody?

Perform the marriage.

S: Perform the marriage, yes, which also has other doorways. So you perform the marriage so that these sinners will no longer be outcasts from society, which once again gets back into the land of ew [sic]. So, yes, other than that, what I like to take from that particular holiday is that, ideally, it is a day in which the whole world stops for a moment and thinks about love. Now, three quarters of the world are thinking about how they don’t have the love that they wish they had in their life, and that’s not even the world that is here in North America, where it’s an out-and-out hallmark holiday. Well, that put a pin in it really fast, didn’t it? But it’s really true. And I am telling you that my message in this month of fat, mutant, martyr babies—I really like that—that what you need is at least one person in your life who lightens your heart, particularly who makes you laugh.

In some early—getting nervous?—in some early cultures, and in a few recent offshoots of some of your more interesting conservative religions in the United States, but in ancient cultures laughter has been considered a gift of the gods. Laughter encourages love, because the feelings from a heart-lifting belly-laugh—belly-laugh; that is one scary thought—from that sort of all-the-way-through-to-your-heart laughter causes your body to release the very same—I almost said toxins just now, oops—the very same chemicals that allow you to feel what you feel after orgasm. I won’t mention any by name. Do you see something interesting in there for those of you who can remember far enough back to when I taught about sacred sex? I know, you thought I was going to say “all the way back to whenever you had your last orgasm,” didn’t you? That’s what you thought.

And getting laughed at.

S: And the laughter did not make you feel good did it? In the most ideal situation, what is it that orgasm does in sacred sex? Mary Claire.

Well, at least after orgasm you’ve taught that . . .

S: No, actually it’s at orgasm.

Well, it’s creation energy, and, since Fusion, both are both, but it magnifies and amplifies creation energy.

S: Well, from what had been the transference, the transformation, the transformative, re-creative energy of masculine energy and feminine energy—and we’re not talking gender, we’re talking energy—shifting at the point of orgasm so that there was within the physical being a wholeness, a complete and total fulfillment of god or goddess energy, so that at Fusion that energy transference is not needed because, ideally, Fusion is there—you have it within you—but orgasm amplifies it and brings it up as god and goddess. Instead of working toward that release as a doorway, you start with the doorway, the recognition that this is an act of god and goddess functioning within me, and making that whole into the world. Laughter amplifies that powerful, that pure god and goddess in you. The heart-cleansing laughter that you need every day of your life.

So what do you do to laugh? Well, one of the things that you need to be aware of is that laughter must come from a light heart. It does not create a light heart, it must come from one. So what is something that you can do to help lighten your heart?

Wiggle your toes.

S: That bond never changes does it? It’s just boom right there. That’s right, wiggle your toes. It’s going to be interesting under the covers tonight isn’t it? “Wait a minute, I’m still wiggling my toes.” “Nothing yet?” “No, wiggling them still though,” “Nothing yet?” And so, interestingly enough, when I’m saying to you that you need to have a heart-cleansing laugh every day, I’m standing here holding a bunch of big, black rocks. Whatever could that be saying? However am I going to get from laughing every day to “here is my black rock”? Let’s see, “This is your heart now.”

You could think about the water gurgling over the rocks.

S: Come back to that in just a moment.

I’ve found, for me personally, that I have stones around my house that are specifically there to remind me of something. Like on my desk I’ve got a couple, and every time I look at them it reminds me of that, and it helps me get back into that frame of mind, creating whatever it is I’m reminded of.

S: So it is a symbol, and indeed it is, it is a symbol of whatever it is it’s going to remind you of. Go back, Linda.

When water moves over the rocks though, it’s like bubbling joy, it gurgles and foams and does all those light tricks with the sunlight, and it’s just really nice.

S: Rocks don’t usually come out feeling like this. Come out?

They aren’t found in their natural environment like that.

S: Created like this. […] seeing the lover creating that “ouch, ouch” . . . aha, aha . . . anyway, that lover, but instead these are rocks that have eons of water flowing over them, bubbling all around them with joy, or maybe just knocking them around a whole lot, hitting them against each other. And over time, a long, long time, some of those hard edges start coming off, and some of those little chips and places that seem like holes that were created when a really important piece got knocked off and the water got too rough eventually became smooth. I think it’s very important for you to notice that smooth does not mean uninteresting. Nor does it mean they’re all alike, but they have been through the emotional, such as water, the emotional water wringer—that is a washing machine reference, correct?

Yes, the tumbler.

S: Nice of you to join me. These aren’t a symbol of laughter. These are a symbol of what you need to be in order to laugh. You don’t laugh when all you feel are the rough edges. You don’t laugh when all you see are the chunks that are knocked off. “Didn’t make it with me! They’re still in the other part of the stream, and look it, I’m right here at the water fall. What am I going to do?” When you have spent all of your life trying really hard to stay out of that rushing water so that you would not have to smooth out anything, because your mother told you you were smooth enough.

This year—this is important—this year you need to free your laughter, to have a light heart, not tough little rock instead of a heart. Your laughter, your pleasure, your joy, your delight, all of those are good, but the laughter will change you. And I’m not talking laughing with the throat and not the eyes, laughing with the breath not the heart. This world is absolutely hilarious. It is. But you don’t see that unless you step back a bit, and it’s only by stepping back a bit that you can laugh about all of those things it has taken to smooth the rock of you.

I wish you a love so real and powerful and all-consuming that you laugh, that your laugh starts at the inside, escapes to the outside, and touches the hearts of everyone around you. That you remember that light—as in “love and light”—light is light-hearted.

Laughter is a very necessary part of your physical and mental and spiritual day, and everything that you can do to amplify it, feed it, make it safe and let it escape, the better you’ll be for it.

Would the two of you serve? You can do it.

I’ll do my light-hearted best.

S: Aye, you’re wanting some, too, are you?

They’re my color.

S: I’m raining rocks. Hold here’s a bigger . . . and take yourself around the room and start passing them out. Out they go. Out they go. Charlotte, would you? Thank you, love. Keep holding. Got it? Good. Thank you. There are more?

I’ve got one that’s got a rough edge.

S: That seems fitting, don’t you think, Bonnie?

Get that bulldozer out, Bonnie.


S: Good. You don’t think I’m going to say that to this group do you? Thank you, love. Everybody have a rock. Next time you’re between this and a hard place. Shall we come up with a few rock jokes here? Thank you. And Social is going “Right.”

So it is a reminder. It’s the getting knocked about that smoothes you out. It is also a reminder that this is what your heart looks like without laughter. I don’t think the rock would consider that insulting.

This is a really important time in your life. Please live it. Love it. And laugh through it.
