"Why Is There Still Something Missing?"
by Michael Bonamassa, Sr.
OK, so you're at the point of anxiously awaiting to ascend, and you can't understand why it hasn't happened. You want it badly and have
been focusing your intent on ascending, but it still hasn't happened ... and you ask: "Why? Is there still something missing?" To understand
the answer to this question, I will share with you what that invisible force is that shapes the response we get to our requests for manifesting
our desires. While it's not at all difficult to understand, it is difficult to put into practice because of having been on 'auto-pilot' ...
sleep-walking most of our lives. It's like those bad habits that are so difficult to let go.
As you have read here or elsewhere and have come to know by now, everything in the universe is energy and it's at the frequencies at which
it vibrates that determines the form. So, the effects of energy depends on its' vibrational frequency and except through microscopes, we cannot
see this energy outside the form that exists. It is through these vibrations how this energy is transformed from one substance to another.
So, vibration equals energy. Place with this knowledge, the knowledge that we know two things for sure ... (1) that we are not all blessed
with the same amount of energy or vibration, and (2), that we have different qualities of energy or vibration. The other thing is that it is very
difficult for us to maintain the same quality of this energy or vibration day-in and day-out ... let alone from one moment to another.
The fact is that this quality depends very much on our own thoughts and our inner mental and feeling world ... all of which are made up of
energy, I might add. If, for example, we lack 'self esteem' ... feel inadequate and short changed by life itself ... we tend to withdraw inwards,
wallow in self pity and develop a negative inner dialogue. This negative inner dialogue is all of low vibration which then controls our life as
it manifests on the material level with negative results. So, no matter how much we seek happiness or aim for success in anything, it remains out
of reach leaving us frustrated and wondering why ... forgetting that it is our inner world that ultimately leads us towards or away from our
goals and dreams.
Often, as we work hard towards achieving a certain thing (through visualization, for example), whatever that may be, and we seem to be doing
all the right things that are required on the outer level (the physical level), but the goal still eludes us, it's only natural that we sit there
annoyed and distressed; wondering what went wrong. We complain, sink into a depression and blame others and circumstances; totally ignoring and
forgetting about our inner world ... the real world that we live in ... that inner world that consists of our intimate thoughts, our inner
dialogue or self-talk, our intentions, our real secret desires ... all of which is the that energy which fuels manifesting that which we think we
want at that moment, but is being fueled by these low energy emotions which are going to create that which we 'don't' want.
Don't you see? The truth of the matter is that everything that is visible in the physical world, first has to be completed on the etheric
level ... the thought or mental level ... before it can materialize in the physical world that we live in. Artists, architects, cooks, gardeners,
writers and all creative people on any level know about this procedure. Here's a simple example. We cannot have a clear quality photograph without
having the perfect negative first, so the negative for our physical goal ... the blueprint ... has to be complete first on the mental plane ... in
our 'thought' world. The more detailed, the clearer and perfect that this picture is, the better and the stronger chance it will have to manifest
in our physical world. Therefore, the bottom line is for us to be sure to know where our current thoughts are coming from ... inner thoughts of
lower energy vibrations or thoughts that will fuel what we really want. For this, it's important to be mindful/aware of our thoughts.
I think I've made my point here as to the answer to the frustrations that many are either going through or will go through as we try to ascend
into the higher dimension of consciousness ... when and why there may still be something missing! No matter how much of a show we put on of being
positive to impress others, or to fool ourselves, if we have an inner negative dialogue ... a dissatisfied unhappy insecure subconscious self ...
the outer will remain what it is ... a fake. The energy of this negative vibration of our thoughts and feelings emanates from our every cell that
makes us up, whether we like it or not.
This then, is the real reason why we cannot constantly fulfill our every wish or desire. It's not because we are not the 'unlimited multi-
dimensional beings of love and light' that we truly are. And it's not because we're "bad", it's because we have yet to reach that point in our
evolution where we can ascend and stay in that higher level of consciousness, and having ultimate control of our vibrations every moment of each minute
So, now that I've shared with you why we don't always get all of the desires we visualize and work on, does it mean that we can't get there?
Of course not ... WE ARE UNLIMITED MULTI-DIMENSIONAL BEINGS OF LOVE AND LIGHT! But, being at this point in time in our evolution as human beings,
it takes a lot of work ... work that most of us still don't understand, or are too lazy to do ... regardless of the wonderful results that await us.
This, dear ones, is life, but we also are the masters of our lives. After all, we have been given the gift of free choice. So whenever you
notice your mischievous 'chattering' ego mind wondering off to negative thoughts, reminding you of all the 'lacks' and what's not possible, force
yourself to think of positive thoughts instead. Use the power of gratitude and focus on all the good points you have in your life and be grateful
for them, no matter how small. Focus and concentration is a major key to getting there. Focus on what you want and not on what you don't want.
Above all, work on balancing your vibration level. Do whatever pleases you, be it meditation, walking in nature, hiking, reading, movies,
books, music, attending workshops, a hobby, singing, and laughing. All of these things raise our vibrations. And if you can't do it on your own
... if you can't discipline yourself ... then get a coach to help and guide you, but do it all with joy. Joy is another key along with Trust.
Each of these steps is a step nearer to getting what you really want in life. This is what we need to master first, with little achievable goals
before embarking on the larger ones. So, you might be faking it to begin with, but in time, you will be a natural and that's when you can expand
your horizon to achieve and ascend to the 5th dimension of higher consciousness.
To sum it up, remember that it's those of a high energy vibration level who are drawn to each other as bees are drawn to honey. Usually,
such energetic dynamic people have a love for life itself and they attract people, money, and success effortlessly. It's having a low energy
vibration from things like anger, shame, low self-esteem, fear, of unhappiness and lack in life that attracts nothing but unhappiness and lack
of love and lack of money to us. So work on balancing your vibration level by letting go of those lower energies at every chance you can get.
I will close by re-minding you of this ... "E-motion" ... energy-in-motion ... is also a big part of the answer. Move, be active, be
energetic ... get your heart racing ... sing, sing loud, stomp your feet, get excited, get enthusiastic, be passionate, be interested and give
thanks for the good stuff that goes on around you. As Henry Ford once said: "If you think you can, and if you think you can't, you are right!"
If you expect to get the best, you will get the best ... if you expect to lose, then you will surely lose. It is all OUR choice ... it is how
the universe works.
