Tompkin & Letticia
Addressing health beliefs.
Awareness in every moment.
The snowy owl.
Climate change and what we can do.
The flooding in Townsville, Australia.
Gates of Horn.
TOMPKIN: I am understanding where you are heading with your intentions and I do encourage those intentions and yes we do have some things to discuss with that.
LETTICIA: Just to keep it orderly, I will go by what I’ve written down in my book okay?
LETTICIA: The first thing, I want to talk about is my health and wellbeing. Katrin and I were discussing our underlying fears and judgements about doctors and hospitals and I told her I wanted to create my reality with being healthy, happy, dead. In other words I don’t want to experience any kind of pain and suffering and all that stuff. I just want to go when I am not of any physical use anymore. My question is am I on track with this belief of mine, or am I just fooling myself with the belief of being healthy, happy, healthy, happy dead. Do I really believe it?
TOMPKIN: You do have beliefs and associations that the human body deteriorates with time and that you will be faced with some some deterioration and will have to cope with that. However you may shift those beliefs to be (inaudible) your body can be managed and be comfortable, well until old age.
LETTICIA: That’s what I want. I want to shift the belief. By acknowledging it, am I shifting it?
TOMPKIN: If you acknowledge that the beliefs are there and the associations are there and you then must insert a focus, a daily focus or even a yearly assessment where you are acknowledging your wellbeing. Where you are acknowledging that you are accomplishing in this area and that because your beliefs and associations are related to food, exercise, ability and ageing you need to acknowledge that you in fact are, remaining the same and that you are healthy and that you are taking measures to remain that way. But it is not giving impetus to fear. So, you are not eating healthy because of the fear, you are eating healthy to acknowledge your healthy body.
LETTICIA: When I read through my Catherine Ponder affirmation on health and wellbeing, am I just parroting those words or am I meaning it? I think I am really meaning it. Am I meaning it?
TOMPKIN: You are incorporating this, yes, I would agree.
LETTICIA: Oh good. I listen to Anthony Williams. I am sure you are aware of him. He is intuitive and offers guidance but he comes at the guidance from a place of not wellbeing. As something is wrong with you. He says to everyone, your liver is toxic and…
TOMPKIN: Yes, I call his guidance misguidance.
LETTICIA: Yes and while it is I might need to drink something because it’s beneficial to me, I don’t want to take it because I think my liver is toxic.
( Lost connection)
TOMPKIN: If some of the items interest you, then perhaps ask yourself what is it about it that attracts you, rather than someone telling you it’s because you have a toxic liver. So if he mentions for example, a certain plant or a type of diet or a juice, ask yourself what about that item attracts me and take it for that reason instead.
LETTICIA: And the other thing I would do is check it out with you, because I talk to you.
TOMPKIN: As you wish, and also your own body will tell you if it likes it or not.
You could judge how you feel after you take it.
LETTICIA: How to determine if a supplement is for me or not?
TOMPKIN: First ask yourself why is it that you are seeking to add a supplement to your diet when you have the skills to grow your own food and eat healthy foods in enriched nourishing soil?.
LETTICIA: This all started with me concentrating on my weight gain in my abdominal area. The energy doesn’t seem to be moving there and it’s from this that I go and try all these different things and I don’t know why this is a sticking point with me, this belly weight. Why am I not releasing it?
TOMPKIN: It is several factors. So your energy, when you are anxious or stressed, it forms a tight ball and this is the feeling that you are compressing in the abdomen. However some fibre would help but not in the form of fibre that you would imagine that you purchase from the store or find in your bread but more from green fibres that are naturally chewed and then swallowed. Perhaps you could start by growing small amounts in your garden and consume daily.
Bitter fibres also help move the digestion along, so plants that have a bitter quality when you eat them, you could mix them with your other green leaves to make a nice salad, perhaps.
LETTICIA: So like bitter melon, celery.
TOMPKIN: Arugula; the rocket, too much though, could irritate. So in small amounts if you mix a combination together that is pleasing to you, you will salivate more, you will enjoy your food while you are eating it, you will consume it slower and this will add the fibre that is a moisturising fibre to your diet rather than a grain fibre that absorbs moisture, this contributes.
LETTICIA: This all sounds very doable. Thank you.
TOMPKIN: You are welcome.
LETTICIA: The other thing I wanted to ask about is Seth speaks about the seven year rhythms that impacts space/time in an individual’s life. For myself, I’ve worked this out to be 2020 to be of greater significance. So why isn’t 2019 as significant?
TOMPKIN: Not necessarily.
Every moment is significant. There is some build up of energy, whereby some years have more impact and you are more concentrated in the now and more focused. There are some years that seem to pass by without much happening or even a memory of them later.
They seem insignificant.
The more you live in the now, the more you manifest what you want and the more significant your year will be.
LETTICIA: Yes, that thought occurred to me yesterday while we were driving into the White Mountains. I found myself noticing and saying to myself, ‘This moment is all there is. There is no moment that is more important than this moment.’ And I was thinking this thought in each consecutive moment for most of the drive and really trying to wrap my mind around it; that this moment is all there is. That there is nothing else to look forward to other than this moment in this now. But I have to tell you, it seems so fleeting. I only remembered this when I am thinking the thought. When we started a conversation I would forget about that.
TOMPKIN: Yes, I would agree and it is habitual. The more you practice an awareness in every moment, as much as possible the more you can manipulate time and create what you want, for the awareness of what you are doing in that moment becomes greater.
There is nothing wrong with being lost in the moment. For example, when you approach a garden or a pond and you see perhaps some ducks on the pond and they are in full motion flapping and creating a scene and you are lost and immediately fully attentive on that moment and you are enjoying it. The awareness of the moment isn’t in the foreground of your mind but you are still experiencing it fully attentively in the moment.
LETTICIA: Yes, I understand that. That’s what I did with the birds today, when I was observing them outside my windows and I counted 14 of them on the tree.
TOMPKIN: Birds are often attracted to a more natural environment. So your environment is attracting them and they live in environments where it is supportive, not just the habitat that they require but also, a community. Just as people prefer a community. The habitat must be there in order to support that. So I am highly encouraging of you to continue that in your garden.
LETTICIA: Thank you, yes. I want to.
There has been some rare bird sightings in NH for the snowy owl and I was wondering is that due to climate change.
TOMPKIN: The snowy owl is affected by pesticides, rodenticides, so when individuals decide to poison snakes and rodents. There are individuals still using the poisons that carry over from one creature to another, so when the rodent dies and the owl eats it, the owl then too dies.
There are new products where individuals can reduce rodent numbers, without killing the secondary predator that then consumes that dead body. However, this is not recommended, ( killing the rat or or mouse) for you are also killing their prey. So as there are less fields and long grasses, and more houses and short mowed lawns, it becomes more difficult for this creature to hunt effectively.
LETTICIA: Recently in the forums there has much focus on climate change and it’s quite depressing to read and then to think about after.
Is our concentration or focus on the issues making it worse?
TOMPKIN: Let’s continue my friend.
I am understanding what you are saying about this climate change.
Overall as a population, the majority of you are ignoring it. There is a lack of awareness. A complete and utter stonewall of people that wish to do nothing but continue with their day.
The rest of you are starting to wake up to the realisation that I have discussed with a rather small group over two years ago. (Note: Chat #26)
That the more awareness we have, and asking yourselves, ‘what can I do to begin to contribute to a more positive outcome for us?’ is important.
For the more individuals ask that, the more awareness there will be in a positive manner and the more they will vote for individuals that choose to not participate in negative earth practices, I call it, such as deforestation, mining etc, etc. So individually you may do much and then collectively you may do more.
So, at the moment it is very important that more individuals become aware that climate change is not a thing outside of themselves. It is not a thing that is just passing. It is not just the earth moving through its natural cycle. It is going to affect everyone.
But to understand this without fear, and start to realise where could I live where I’m comfortable? How can I help others understand? What can I do as an individual to increase the likelihood that this will be a more pleasant place to be?
At the moment there is very little movement in that direction, unfortunately.
LETTICIA: Wow. So that’s what I am asking, what can I do? Tara’s asking the same, what can she do where she lives, in her house, on her property?
TOMPKIN: You both are contributing in a positive manner already. So I will suggest continuing what you are doing. Plant your gardens to increase your food supplies for not only yourself, but your neighbours. And by sharing groceries over the fence, that simple act, you then engage the conversation of how you can do more. How easy it is done. Others see how nice it is and they want to do the same.
I would encourage you use less petrol. Use a bike. Walk more. Work closer to home.
So, for example Tara has to drive a lot of distance with her work at the moment and she is choosing to use the work car instead of her own vehicle, for it uses much less fuel.
This in itself, a small thing but helpful.
Less travel. Individuals travel on jets, here, there, everywhere for work, weekends, fun. Let’s get on a plane go here, go there. Is this really necessary?
Do people really need the volumes of furniture that they purchase and throw away the next year? The volumes of clothes they use? There are many movements in the recycling area, living and bringing in a more sustainable lifestyle. Getting individuals interested in magazines that promote that, such as, well in Australia there is organic gardening magazines, in your area there are also similar magazines, where young people are promoting more sustainable lifestyles. And this is likely to become a contagion a fanaticism almost, when individuals become interested in it.
Something as simple as composting.
LETTICIA: Yes, for me this year I am reducing the amount of flowers I plant and replacing with vegetables.
TOMPKIN: You may intermix them, so that you still enjoy your flower garden (inaudible) and so will predatory bugs that will assist maintaining your vegetables.
LETTICIA: Yes, I’ve done away with the lawn in the front. I’m doing only wild flowers, I’ve done that for the last 3 years. I want to be able to…
TOMPKIN: And this is encouraging for all of those small creatures that contributes to the habitat. Perhaps you could choose to plant some small shrubbery. That would also shelter your lovely birds.
Utilise what you have in your cupboards for storing.
Reducing waste in general.
Every person contributing to that mindset would have an enormous impact.
Reducing gas. Do people really have to have gas stoves, gas furnaces, gas hot water heater, gas this, gas that? No.
LETTICIA: So is it better to have electric stoves and furnaces rather than gas?
TOMPKIN: It depends on where you acquire your electricity from my friend.
So you need to think down the chain, where your dollar is contributing to negative planet practices, I’ll call it.
So for example, green energy is sold by some suppliers and they are utilising solar and wind and they are purchasing their electricity through them.
There will be a device in the not too distant future that would generate power at an individual’s household at an enormous rate and will consume and require very little.
If there is a push for this, it will require that these large infrastructures that have been put in place from large companies will deteriorate. They will oppose it. It does not mean that individuals will not be able to get their hands on it though.
By the very choices you make as individuals with your money, the more individuals that are thinking that way, the more pressure it puts on a community to fall in line.
The more pressure it takes off the system so if individuals were to choose, for example in Australia, solar power that runs everything in their house, and they switch to electricity, they are then drawing on a sustaining power, that is not costing the earth fossil fuels, costing the earth with transporting it, costing their bank account for having to pay those companies extraordinary amounts to utilise it and then the affects of burning it.
That is just one cascade.
So if you as individuals, look around your house what can I afford to do now? What significant choices can I make that contribute to positive input into the planet? The more people that do this, the more it will happen and there will be a shift in thinking.
In the daily choices you make, when you purchase an item from the supermarket.
Is that item in something that can be recycled or is it in a piece of plastic that’s going to end up in the ocean?
Is it in something that can be recycled easily or does it cost great amounts of power to break it down and reuse it?
Where does it end up?
Can you reuse it? Is it a glass jar that you can then reuse in your home for your preservation of your garden goods?
These are small suggestions that can improve on what you are already doing.
LETTICIA: I’ve been making small changes in my own home and I also wonder at the same time, is it impactful? But I just keep adding to the changes.
TOMPKIN: You will be able to build yourself a self sustaining environment, if you are so determined that will provide you with almost all your food. Your own power and your own water.
It is very much doable on an individual level.
LETTICIA: I definitely know about the water; we have an underground spring which we had to divert last summer to the catch basin, as we were not prepared to utilise it for our personal use, just yet.
TOMPKIN: Excellent my friend and this will then supply your garden and your fruit trees and whatever you decide to install to consume food that is not contaminated and encourages the bees and the bugs. And your neighbour may look over the fence and appreciate what you are doing and they feel, “Oh look how easy it is, she can do it, I can do it.” And then the next neighbour, and the next neighbour and this is how community gardens farm and street verges where people are planting fruit trees on the street where the lawns are that no one uses.
LETTICIA: We have a lot of lawns in New England that no one uses.
TOMPKIN: As in Australia, but most of them are dead most of the year due to extreme heat or drought. Whereas native plants would serve them much better.
LETTICIA: People here, are very proud of their lawns. They will put all the chemicals in the ground, just to keep it green.
TOMPKIN: Lawns do serve a purpose. They do add a cooling effect. However the addition of all the chemicals defeats the purpose.
F: We can grow vegetables on all that space.
TOMPKIN: Then, you would not need farmers, for there would be enough space to feed everyone.
There would be much less famine, if everyone thought this way and you know it wasn’t that long ago in history that individuals did. (inaudible) had their backyard gardens with their little (inaudible) chickens contributing and the chicken coop contributing compost, cleaning up the bugs and they had a duck or two waddling around, they shared over the fence, they had a greater sense of community, they knew who was doing what, what was happening in the community, there was less crime, more appreciation for neighbours and there certainly wasn’t any waste. Every scrap was utilised. Every rag, every jar, every piece of food. Nothing went to waste.
Individuals walked to worked.
LETTICIA: That’s how I grew up in Biche, remember?
TOMPKIN: That was not so long ago.
LETTICIA: No, it wasn’t.
TOMPKIN: These are small things, individuals can do now. For example, there are the very wealthy who are not contributing anything positive, but rather, are contributing to the problem. Their money then goes back into more problem and they are choosing to not align themselves with helpful measures. Not all of them, there are some that are.
So when you order from a company consider who that individual is and what they are doing with their one trillion dollars.
If you do not donate money to that individual, and even if you are to express why you are closing your accounts, or not ordering, they will get the message.
LETTICIA: The one makes a difference.
TOMPKIN: And then more and more and you tell people, ‘I did this because of this. I did this because of this.’ Oh, hey good idea.
LETTICIA: The grassroots movement.
LETTICIA: Tara asked: Why did the rain hit one circular pocket over the city Townsville and caused the worse flooding ever seen in history, knocking over houses and killing 500, 000 cattle.
Was the government participating in cloud seeding?
TOMPKIN: In this particular case, no they were not. However, there are significant factors that lead to that storm. This storm would have moved on. There has been too much land clearing and a build up of heat that kept it there. This area received more rainfall than those individuals have ever seen before. It has received record levels of rainfall in the past, but the rain is able to get away. With infrastructure the way it is now, it is less likely to escape in a timely manner and thus a build up then causes issues for individuals who have developed areas that should have been left as wetlands.
LETTICIA: Is the super tarmac one of the culprits?
TOMPKIN: That is not in this area. That is where Tara lives.
The area where the flooding is, is much further north.
The area whereTara lives is in drought.
There is a contribution of heat that comes off the Super Base tarmac yes. It does rise up into the the air, and it does affect cloud cover, it does affect small pockets of rain, that would have pass through and perhaps help the situation. However, it also contributes somewhat more to storms and the buildup of storms that may not deposit the rain where it once did.
It is an environmental impact yes, but it is not a massive one.
Where the floods occurred, there has been massive environmental change over the last fifty years.
LETTICIA: So her area will not be getting a relief from the drought anytime soon then?
TOMPKIN: It would appear not in the immediate future but there will be some.
LETTICIA: So, here is where I get a little confused, isn’t there a way that we can create the rain we want? Or the climate we want in our local areas?
TOMPKIN: It is much more than that. It is also a mass result. So, if there is a mass of energy build up from many, many, many individuals singularly focused for example, it can create and add to pressure and changes in weather pattern, yes.
However, the changing climate is overriding and creating complications where it never previously used to.
F: Right, and it’s all new for us because we don’t know how to navigate it.
TOMPKIN: That is correct, but the environment has also changed, so the environment doesn’t know how to cope with it either.
Trees absorb carbon. Trees attract water. Landscape is held still by their roots.
Now; if you remove the natural flow of landscape by plowing it flat to put houses and then try to recreate the drainage, it is highly ineffective.
And this is what has occurred, not only where you are my friend, but also in Australia.
Australia get monsoons. It is a land of heavy rainfalls and periods of drought. It always has been. If individuals change the scape of the land so that there is less waterways and less trees, it creates erosion and then in a dry desertification and then more erosion and then compact soil that is no longer useful.
LETTICIA: So would it be easier for Tara to relocate, rather than try to make a living there?
TOMPKIN: She is earning income from several sources, she has somewhat of a community, she has a space that is somewhat protected, even though it is in drought, it is difficult to improve. This can be done slowly overtime by choosing plants that grow in adverse conditions. She knows already how to improve her soil. She may create a micro climate that is more comfortable by creating more shade.
If she wants to choose to move, and that is entirely her choice, she may then be able to enjoy plants that grow in a different climate, more variety of plants, more variety of vegetables, more variety of fruits, however she may be sacrificing income.
LETTICIA: For us, when it rains a lot we get water in the basement. Is that going to be a worsening situation?
TOMPKIN: At times, it may be. Do not plant trees near your foundation. Plant them further back. Plant shrubbery. You will be amazed at how much water can be taken up by shrubbery.
Very large trees may prove to be intrusive. Lots of shrubbery may prove to provide habitat for birds that would assist your garden: eating the bugs that you do not want eating your plants and it would absorb a great deal of water. It would add colour, and beauty that you can appreciate.
F: Our neighbour who wants to remove our oak tree because it is shading too much of his property. I am not in favour of it, I want to do what is best for the land.
TOMPKIN: This particular tree is a habitat for some creatures. It would have a negative impact if it was removed, for it is also retaining soil.
Perhaps you could engage an individual who specialises in tree trimming so that it is trimmed in a manner that it will not harm it but will allow your neighbour more light.
LETTICIA: I like the idea about the planting of shrubbery to remove water around the property and that will help with preventing the water from getting into the basement.
TOMPKIN: It may not prevent it all at times, but it will remove residual water from the soil when it is already damp, so it will assist.
LETTICIA: Yes, I always have this fear of the basement flooding even though there is a sump pump down there.
TOMPKIN: There may be times where this might occur with the unusual weather patterns, that can be expected. However, you may take measures and you already are, with how you changed your landscape.
LETTICIA: Yes, good to know.
Tompkin what is the most uplifting thing that is happening in our world right now?
TOMPKIN: The whales numbers have reached a level where they might actually be sustainable if man stops interfering.
LETTICIA: What is the most tragic thing?
TOMPKIN: That is a list too long to say. It depends on your definition of tragic my friend.
LETTICIA: Irreversible; things we have done and we cannot make it right in our lifetime.
TOMPKIN: There are mass extinction of many creatures. It is far too late for them.
Australia has seen mass extinction of different marsupials, mammals, birds, all sorts of creatures and has done nothing.
And all of it could have been prevented from not destroying habitat.
Or not hunting them to the brink of extinction.
LETTICIA: What would be the best probability for how the world would look like in the next ten years.
TOMPKIN: There are many probabilities. The best as to your own definition, for you are the individual asking the question. Another individual’s definition of best would be entirely different.
We will go with yours, would be less individuals on the planet. This is your definition remember?
Less individuals on the planet putting pressure on the resources.
More individuals choosing to align with healthy earth practices, such as the items we’ve already discussed.
Larger corporations incorporating into their budgets, funding that when they are building buildings the gardens are added automatically.
They of themselves, are not funding companies with bad business practices that destroy the environment.
There is other material such as hemp use to make paper. More trees are planted.
There are less cars on the road and more fresh air. That would be the best probability that you would prefer.
F: I do feel like I’m helping out as I am not contributing to the population.
TOMPKIN: Correct and neither is Tara. (Chuckles)
Other than her fur children, they do consume a fair bit of meat.
Some of which she grows herself.
LETTICIA: We’ve cut back on red meat at our house significantly.
TOMPKIN: This is not necessary, if you choose not to. You may choose local sourced items that are grown in a sustainable manner where the individual creating the farms have an awareness that the grain they purchased may not have been harvested in a sustainable manner, instead, they mostly feed off their own paddocks and they rotate and they practice permaculture. So, eating less is good, yes. But it is not necessary if you do not wish.
LETTICIA: I want to eat eggs again, but only free range.
TOMPKIN: Or farmers who have chicken locally whereby the chicken are free ranging and moved everyday and contributing to paddock restoration and compost for their garden.
A small example would be: Our friend was enjoying her garden magazine this morning and was reading a sustainability awards at the back that were written up and one of them is for a chicken farmer who’s chickens she had purchased when she does not have enough of her own. This farmer has had sustainable practice for twenty years and it’s finally been recognised as an organic chicken grower that contributes back to the environment.
Chickens can help a garden incredibly. They are easy to raise, easy to feed and small numbers, provide the family with much nutrition. Not en masse in cages, in large barns, shipped on trucks and then harvested is not sustainable practice. It is harmful to the environment, not to mention the animals torture in their lifetime. And then individuals wish to eat this?
That is up to them but it is not sustainable.
LETTICIA: To change the subject a bit, I started practicing a suggestion made by Seth: saying I want a true dream that will come from the Gates of Horn. I’m doing it because he said it will help harmonise portions of my being and I will recognise my beliefs and enhance my energy.
Tell me more about the Gates of Horn, what exactly am I doing there?
TOMPKIN: You are inventing a space for yourself to acknowledge past events, future events as you know them and recognise the impact they have on your life today.
So for example, if you had a focus that was a German engineer, for example, and this engineer believes that machines are easier to manage than people and machines will be the improvement of all mankind. This set of associations and beliefs and sometimes dogma of different lives and focuses, all of it will contribute to you and how you disseminate information and make choices. So what it does is allow you a space that you can almost search through your own library of fact and fiction and choose what it is you wish to bring to the forefront in your life. Let’s call it a sorting area.
So you could picture yourself in a rather large library and a table surrounded by books of yourself. And allow each book to open as you are ready, read what is in the book or sense what is within the book and choose: does this work presently? Do I like this? How much of this am I carrying? Implementing? And then you may have a large bin!
If you find it incredibly distasteful, you could just chuck it in the bin, if it’s not working for you right now and that’s okay.
LETTICIA: What I have noticed is that I have been remembering my dreams. Some of them are terribly scary, like the one with the snake. I don’t know what that was about, but I remembered you telling me that snakes for me means trust.
I screamed myself awake in this most recent dream and all this guy was doing in the dream, he was very gentle and I guess he just wanted to show me that there was nothing to be afraid of, but I didn’t want to hear it or see it. I was just so caught up in my fear.
When I woke up in my own reality, I was still afraid and anxious and I didn’t understand how I would ever get my fears neutralised around that.
TOMPKIN: Who do you think the individual was?
LETTICIA: I don’t know. Me?
TOMPKIN: No. In this instance, Elias had assisted you. And was offering you reassurance that the fear is not necessary, for you continue regardless.
LETTICIA: Was that why he was so gentle. I pointed out the snake to him, in the flowers, when he came and stood beside me. I pointed it out so that he would be aware it was there. And yet he picked it up.
TOMPKIN: To show you that it is a creature like any other creature, it is not to be feared, it is there doing a job, it has a purpose, it is not paying attention to you, it is not there to harm you and to trust yourself to keep yourself safe and that you will continue no matter what.
LETTICIA: Even while I am talking to you right now, I still cannot find it in myself to feel safe, so I have to do some work there.
TOMPKIN: So have a look at what is the snake? The snake could be different in any dream. It is the snake representing fear. But fear of what in that particular dream?
LETTICIA: I can’t think of anything I was fearful of in that particular dream. I was standing around waiting for A to come back upstairs and I was looking at the flowers in the garden.
When I saw it in the flowers, I wasn’t even terrified of it because I knew it was there.
I only got terrified when he decided to pick it up and come after me with it. Just come so that I can touch it or something.
TOMPKIN: So it was more to be identified, more in your face, with more awareness.
Becoming aware is not to be feared.
LETTICIA: The other dream I had was with my aunt, I dreamt she came over and she was supposed to spend five days with us, but she left after two days because someone was going her way. She left an open book and some bengay and some vicks behind. And I was looking at the open book. I woke up and thought that has something to do with knowledge.
TOMPKIN: Not necessarily. What was the book opened to?
LETTICIA: I don’t recall. It wasn’t religious I know. I just remember it being an opened book.
TOMPKIN: It does represent information somewhat, but more information is required to disseminate what.
LETTICIA: Are all dreams significant?
TOMPKIN: Somewhat, yes.
But also your interpretation of them is significant, so you may be having a very good time in a dream and it is just fun and a release of energy, you may also be teleporting in a dream or you may be busily manifesting possible scenarios in a dream or it depends on your interpretation of it and how much importance you put on it.
LETTICIA: I will start looking at how I interpret my dreams.
TOMPKIN: This would be helpful, for sometimes you are just merely having fun, relaxing and sometimes there is distortion. So the interpretation of what was happening is distorted when you are waking. For it doesn’t make sense from one framework to another framework.
LETTICIA: I also realise that the more I read the Seth material before I go to bed, the more vivid my dreams are.
TOMPKIN: Then there is much encouragement in navigating dreams and dreamscapes. For it does assist you in creating your reality and it does assist you with shifting as well.
So writing them down is helpful. It is not difficult my friend, for you will start to see patterns emerging, when you interpret dreams.
So, for example, something will represent one thing to you but it may represent something totally different to another individual. That is why dream interpretation books are a bit overzealous in their prediction for every individual has a different interpretation. For you the snakes is about trusting yourself and then that snake can be applied to different scenarios to represent the fear of the scenario.
Water for you would mean something different than it would to another individual.
You may also notice patterns of places. So you may find yourself waking up in places that do not make any sense and then another night you may dream of the same place and then you begin to realize that this is a place you have created and it’s like a roadmap.
And you could find your way to it, you can go back there. Of course you may not want to go back to, but others you may.
LETTICIA: I’m getting a good idea of how to do this now, thank you.
TOMPKIN: You are welcome.
LETTICIA: One question I forgot to ask for Tara is why was the 500,000 cattle killed in Townsville?
TOMPKIN: They are also participating in this event. It is a massive event that draws on the individual attention to the necessity to change their ways for climate change.
When a farmer experiences a year of drought and then loses their entire herd of cattle to a flood, perhaps they should be choosing a different way of farming and an entirely different animal indeed.
LETTICIA: So it’s really a wakeup call for the farmers?
TOMPKIN: For everyone involved. For the farmers didn’t necessarily by themselves create the environmental disasters. There are many factors in this area that are contributing to the destruction of the reef.
There are many cattle farms that have destroyed the landscape and now they expect it to function properly when there is heavy rain?
What do they expect?
The cattle chose to participate, as creatures do to align with the fact that their territory was not sustainable. They went from mass periods of hunger to cold, exposure, cold rain for days on end. It is not an environment that cattle should be living in. Extreme heat. Flies. Dust. No grass. Digestive discomfort from lack of food.
Cattle were originally bred to be in small numbers on more grassy plains. Australia’s landscape is not a grassy plain. It was orginally a heavily treed landscape with grass lands. But now with no trees and sparse grass that burns naturally and floods naturally.
It supports kangaroos, for they have a different digestive system.
And they have the ability to stop breeding when there is no food.
They naturally stop breeding.
LETTICIA: They were forcing the cattle in an unnatural environment.
TOMPKIN: Correct, they then strip that environment down to bare dirt that then does not sustain the correct grasslands that they attempt to reestablish when it does rain. There is nothing holding the soil intact and the nutrients are lost anyway.
So they are attempting to feed a large bovine, on grass that has not enough nutrients.
It is RIDICULOUS from the start. But the money, the money, the money. There is much more investment in Australian beef, from China, the US and Japan. Indonesia LOVES beef.
LETTICIA: Okay, I don’t feel so bad that they decided to take themselves out of the equation.
TOMPKIN: They actively participated in the event.
LETTICIA: Clearly there will be a lot more of those type of events, we have yet to experience, since we are only interested in the economy of it.
TOMPKIN: At this point in time, those same farmers are choosing to once again, attempt to reestablish herds, for they do not see another way to farm.
LETTICIA: So it’ll just repeat itself?
TOMPKIN: At this point in time, yes.
LETTICIA: Similar to what’s happening in California too.
TOMPKIN: I would agree. California also has other issues to worry about. And we have spoken of this in the past with other individuals that live there. And I have encouraged them to leave.
LETTICIA: I am glad I left.
TOMPKIN: I am also. There will be much of California that is completely destroyed.
Rebuilding will never be an option.
LETTICIA: You know we got the inspiration to leave? Does everyone get that inspiration or intuition to leave?
TOMPKIN: Most individuals are ignoring it.
LETTICIA: I applied that to where I live now, but so far I have not gotten an inspiration to leave yet.
I want to leave for other reasons, but not because I’m afraid of climate change.
TOMPKIN: No, I would agree. It would be for personal preferences.
LETTICIA: I wonder about my sister who lives in Tampa. I wonder if she ever gets inspired to leave and would she?
TOMPKIN: These individuals would most likely have time to make that decision based on weather forecasting.
LETTICIA: And then I think about my parents in the Caribbean and I do overwhelm myself with these thoughts.
TOMPKIN: And you must remember it is their choices. And no matter what they choose, and how much they choose to participate in, at what level, that is their experience.
LETTICIA: Yes, it our own individual experience. I presented myself with the likes of you and Elias, so I won’t have to experience the trauma of it all.
LETTICIA: And some individuals continue to experience it at different levels in their own lives, for often they learn from it, it is a way of incorporating rapid change when they feel it , it expedites their learning in many ways and others prefer to have a much calmer approach.
LETTICIA: I personally like the calmer approach.
TOMPKIN: I recommend it my friend.
LETTICIA: I want to thank you so much for answering all my questions today.
TOMPKIN: I am happy to be of assistance my friend, and you keep focusing on the direction that you are for you are making a difference.
You are most welcome. Until next time my friend. Grow your garden.
