Debbie Eastick

It does happen alot down here too Robert, but maybe it is also due to that inner child of ours soooo much needing to enjoy and celebrate life that it often pushes to the surface all those heavy wounds that stop us from doing so, at least that was my experience this year.


Hi Debbie - Yes, well, we've all had difficult feelings come up at odd times due to the "irrepressibility" of our "Young One Everlasting" remembering that its Divine Estate is one of joy, happiness, and celebration. And then we look around and see our dysfunctional world, and wonder what happened. That's why "riding the waves of grief," not turning away nor wallowing in it, was the way I learned how to navigate the stuck stuff. Now I don't suffer as I once did, though with Jupiter in Pisces I do feel all there is to feel, and there's truly a lot of frustration out there due to feelings of lack, failure, being squashed, and overall just tired of the struggle of moving ourselves and the material creation into a better ideal. Matter does not yield its inertia easily.....


I do believe I have made some progress. One of the folks at the holiday table, well I knew she was startin to swing while we were doing the prep for the feast. It has been a long and troublesome battle with her through the years for me. At one point, I had left the room and returned to the table only to hear her snarking on me to the group. But I did okay. I realized that her words belonged to her and not me. And yes, perhaps she has some holiday sadness. For so long my bio family, via the parental units (and now they are gone), allowed her to call all the shots. I know it is a big change for her, losing her power position. I just find it difficult to work together with others to make something happen and make her the center of attention at the same time. It doesn't go together somehow for me. But we did move those food items into a delectable feast. People vs the food matter :).


Dear Robert,
Thank you for this timely reminder that we share the collective unconscious of all feelings....

I have been using this time to do my inner work of honest self evaluation and have concluded that there is still much to be learned and overcome. In keeping with the spirit of loving kindness and compassion, my dreams of late have offered the insight that we all deserve forgiveness and that all have in the human condition, the potential for expression of light or dark. So with this awareness comes the understanding that we are all "works in progress" with very little in the way of perfection in human form at this point in time.

Allowing myself to be imperfect is helpful. And forgiving humanity for the failings of this age does offer a compassionate view which brings me out of saddness and fear.

Mahalo dear teacher!


"only you release your internal blockages and reservations about being truly fulfilled"
Robert and do we do this - I think this is where I'm stuck!

I am so thankful that I stumbled upon this site - more than once your words have resonated with me and brought me increased solace, understanding, and hope and also sometimes confusion as I struggle with discerning what truth is for me and what isn't...or interpreting certain things and applying them to my life. I had a funk come over me for a couple of days recently and I am lighter and brighter today and this post was perfect timing. I think I can figure out what helped me through this and I am grateful. But today, I realized, that as far as I've come in the last year, I still have some kind of doubt/block/belief/? about receiving - all things being possible for me - dreams manifesting - abundance-joy-partner etc. I have prayed and been to energy healers etc. Anyone have any suggestions - how do I get to the bottom of what is blocking me or is this just a perception issue? Why don't I believe to my core and accept good IS happening - CAN happen for ME? I've had intuitives tell me "things get better from here" and "you're definitely back together" with him...and signs galore but still I have a hard time trusting and believing (in myself in spirit in both) and I don't know why.


Hi Caliban - Holydays do seem to bring out the tapes people take for granted, don't they? I'm sure that who you're dealing with does have sadness, for whatever reason. I tend to remind people that just because a being may be related by blood may not have anything to do with how close or distant you are. It's the old reminder we were told so long ago, "Who is your Father, your Mother? Who is your Brother, your Sister?"

Hi Elah - Yes, I try to remember to post this at this time of the year, since there are many who are having a hard time, and even more having a hard time over having a hard time. Loving kindness, compassion, and forgiveness all begin at home. If we are not these to ourselves, then how can we express these to others? We are all "works in progress" indeed!! And I truly believe that if/when we become "perfect" as humans then we'll perfectly forgive our relative imperfections, since it's not in the human evolutionary plan ever to be "perfect" in ways where we will cease to grow. Angels and Devas do hit perfection and remain in that forever. But we humans are another story entirely......

Hi Kerry - Doubt is one of the final fetters of the lower self, and is not easily overcome. So please don't give yourself too hard a time over having some residual doubt. Of course, doubt is not the same as a healthy skepticism about things that should be taken with a proverbial grain of salt - that's just Divine Discrimination at work. Also please stop believing that "all things are possible for me," since that's not a realistic way to approach your Divinity and special tasks to do in our world. We cannot be all things - we can only be the best we can be given the circumstances of our character and what we are willing to take on, and even that is tempered by the fact that we cannot be all we can imagine. For example, I cannot be who I am and do what I do and also be a big time musician and big time scientist and big time political analyst and big time anything else. They are somewhat mutually exclusive. So we can only be the best self we can be, and grow into other skills at the appropriate time.

Some things we could accomplish can only be fulfilled after a training period. Relationships are like that. I would rather have been "just friends" for 20 years with my current sweetheart than push something when we were younger and create patterns that would have influenced (or perhaps prevented) our current marriage, since neither of us had certain skills when younger that we do now. It's the same with abundance. While there were times I believed I needed a large amount of money and would have done the right thing, in hindsight I'd have made a mess of many things that I wouldn't today. And so then I wanted it and never received it, and now that I have it I can see the wisdom of what I had to learn in the intervening years so I wouldn't squander or waste it, regardless of how well intentioned I was at the time.

So I suppose it's somewhat of a perception issue, but also perhaps a need to surrender to process rather than judge what seems to be or not. Maybe good is happening, and you're getting impatient about why it seems not to be happening. Or maybe you're looking in the wrong place, or the wrong way, in which case stop judging what isn't happening and open to what you need to know to move in the "right" direction. You cannot believe in "intuitives" who are cheerleading you if you know that something isn't right, since your subconsciousness cannot be fooled in understanding what superconsciousness has in store for you. Only your self consciousness can get muddled through not understanding how superconsciousness and subconsciousness dance with each other.

Maybe you need to go back and re-read my recent post called "Remember." It may remind you why it's not good to judge yourself against anything you perceive, since no one else will ever have your particular destiny, timing, or ways and means of fulfillment. Aum and blessings.


Thank you so much for putting the time and thought into the reply - it was helpful and I truly appreciate it.


Robert, it really is all about brothers and sisters in the wider planetary family now. My parents, well, I am fortunate to have really known them, and at heart, I am very good with them. They were good teachers where it counted because they understood who I am too, maybe even better than I did.
