TOMPKIN: And G’day! How are you? My friend?
KERRY: Hi Tompkin! Thank you for coming.
TOMPKIN: Oh it is my pleasure and we have some exciting topics to discuss?
KERRY: I hope so, yeah. Hello to you too. So, please can I ask you some advice today?
TOMPKIN: Very well.
KERRY: Thank you. I would like to ask, because Tara and I have been having a discussion just today about consciousness amongst normal and average and everyday people in Australia and how to get people to be more contributive and how do we get people to be more interested in seeing life at a deeper level maybe but actually making a contribution to the preservation of the country, of the world, of the barrier reef, of the seas around us, of things like that. So it would be nice to set up a question of the week on the internet to try to stimulate people’s thinking and to try to get them to be a bit more introspective and a bit more contributive. Have you got any thoughts or could you give us any advice or would you be able to give us any insight on what sort of questions to ask? How to get people thinking a little bit more? Any thoughts from you?
TOMPKIN: Very well. For the most part people are already focused on the various issues regarding their planetary change, their lifestyle change, their problems with how to deal with the global warming changes the barrier reef, they’ll all hearing about it on the news, in the newspapers, in books they read, on the internet. It has caught their attention.
However their lack of focus is involved with how it will change their daily lives.
For they are so involved with get up, go to work, make the meals, get the kids off to school, that there is little time left in their day to actually focus on what can I do.
And it is within their realm to do a lot, each person. They merely have to look around them with what they do each day in their routine and what that entails. It involves the use of water, the use of electricity. Power powers their every device.
Their every activity is somehow dependent on what the planet provides. A greater appreciation for that as a whole will then spread an energetic reaction throughout their entire day regarding the entire planet and it’s like dropping a pebble into water and it spreads outwards. So by appreciating the water they’re drinking that it’s clean, by appreciating they can just plug in their toaster and viola they have toast. Where did the toast come from? Where did that bread come from. How much power did it utilize to actually get that bread.
Actually appreciating every small thing that they do will then lend a greater appreciation to what the cost was to get it. And they will slowly change their focus on how much they want to cost in every single transaction that they are involved with. How much do they want to cost the planet. And that there could be your question. How much am I willing to cost the planet. For there are other ways of doing things that have no cost, in fact they give back to the planet.
KERRY: It’s a bit like people don’t know where their food come from isn’t it? That they don’t understand that there is an animal in the paddock and it ends up as a slab of something on their plates. That they turn on the tap, the water comes out clean and drinking but so many people in the world don’t have clean drinking water and we take that water for granted and the power of water. If we don’t have water, we don’t have rain nothing grows. We don’t survive so all those sorts of things have long trailer tails of questions but our consumption of it is completely inadvertent and unconscious and completely selfish I suppose.
TOMPKIN: Well it is a matter that they have created their breakfast before them. I want breakfast, therefore they shall have breakfast. And the demand for various items, their desires, has created a need and therefore consumeristic approach to how those things are provided and people then no longer have to give any forethought as to how they actually receive those items within their household. Sure they give thought to the fact that they actually received a paycheck, took that paycheck to the store then bought a b c d. What they do not consider is in the transaction of receiving that paycheck. How did that just affect the planet? It’s about which rabbit hole you want to go down and if you look at each one are appreciating what the cost was and what it involved and how you can give back, many, many, many people will find ways to give back in a much more substantial way and will simply stop participating in the larger greater costs.
KERRY: Please talk a little bit more about giving back. Explain that a little bit more.
TOMPKIN: For example, if you wish to go the store and buy a two dollar loaf of bread. The bread is no longer two dollars in Australia but it once was. In some places it still is. If you wish to go to the store and buy the bread and you are appreciating the farmer that has taken the time to grow the grain and harvest the grain and the petrol that was needed to do that and then the people that have then processed the grain and package the grain and the cost of the packaging. And then you look at the petrochemicals that are involved in containing and wrapping the bread. All before you even eat it. Would you still consume as much bread if you knew the process it underwent or would you simply choose perhaps another grain that is offered in a more cost efficient manner at perhaps a different venue that is still whole that you could perhaps make the bread yourself. And I hear people crying already. I don’t have time to make my own bread. Well then it is quite simple. Perhaps you could choose another option, that is more environmentally friendly to fill your belly.
KERRY: Or you could choose to buy unpackaged bread from the baker?
TOMPKIN: This is correct. Or you could go to a facility that offers the whole mixtures of grains and choose what it is you like and perhaps look at different recipes that are simple to make in advance, where you have several loaves of bread that feeds your entire family for a fraction of the cost, you are still providing for the farmer.
But then that farmer should consider how much petrol he is using to harvest the grain. Is their other methods? And I assure you there are other methods of harvesting grain that are much more environmentally friendly. Grain is not an environmentally friendly product to begin with. If more people consumed vegetables and grain that grows naturally such as wild rice, quinoa is much more environmentally friendly, plain rice is actually more environmentally friendly. It is more manpower costly, but more environmentally friendly, massive phosphate fertilizers and sprays are not required. Their are better choices. Buckwheat for example is a better choice.
KERRY: Bread is just a filler, it’s just cardboard in the whole scheme of things and yet everybody is so reliant on bread. It is such a staple.
TOMPKIN: This is correct and yet it served its purpose during the war years when there were many mouths to feed and it created jobs and it required a lot of manpower to harvest the wheat and the wheat fed many for a very low price.
KERRY: And that’s the same in third world countries now isn’t it really?
TOMPKIN: It is, however they do harvest their grain with less cost to the earth and the environment and the cost to the soil.
KERRY: True. Yes and they do a lot of the third world countries, rely more heavily on rice and on other cereals so perhaps we need to be more leaning towards Asian style eating or Asian style breakfast where it’s not toast and coffee. It’s rice and last night sauce or something like that.
TOMPKIN: You can make many choices in your own environment as to how you choose to structure your day to reduce your impact on the planet. It is simply a matter of considering every single thing you do and appreciating how you got it.
And that appreciation will then lead to more appreciation and will also help you create within your own environment more things to appreciate. And you will not only be happier, you will also make better choices and people in general will start appreciating the planet. And when there is a mass appreciation for the environment that you reside in, there will no longer be a need to destroy it.
KERRY: ‘Cause that’s what we’re doing.
TOMPKIN: In many ways, I would agree.
KERRY: So the starting question is about appreciation.
TOMPKIN: Absolutely! And it is such as easy thing to do and it will get everybody thinking so let’s leave it at that and see what people come up with.
KERRY: Okay. Thank you.
TOMPKIN: You’re welcome.
KERRY: Can I ask you some personal questions now please?
KERRY: Thank you. We talked about my real estate thing and how I’m struggling with that and so on and as Tara said to me I feel like I’m in the control of my world rather than me being in control of my world. And I was thinking on the way here, why do I struggle with my real estate? Can you give me some advice on how I can turn my perception round. That’s probably a big question, how can I turn my perception around to make my world driven by me rather than me driven by my world. Have you got any advice on that please?
TOMPKIN: Your perception right now is focused on moving forward.
TOMPKIN: And you are skipping stones so to speak.
KERRY: Am I?
TOMPKIN: You are skipping steps in the process of creating the final outcome that you are most interested in.
TOMPKIN: Now; to clarify this, the first step is to consider what is it that you would like ultimately and how does that feel? And to focus on that as if it were a present state.
So if your goal is actually to sell more real estate, then you would have to envision what that would look like. What would that feel like and picture yourself already in the present doing that. However your focus is far, far in advance that has nothing to do with real estate for real estate for you is a means to the end. For you see the real estate as getting you to the final product, which is actually a happy, fulfilled retirement.
TOMPKIN: So your focus is on a happy fulfilled retirement and not actually what is in front of you. You may manifest a happy fulfilled retirement, but you do not necessarily need real estate to do that. If you want to engage real estate and see how far you can take it and how successful you can be, then that, my friend, should be your perception. Should be your focus.
KERRY: No I don’t want to do real estate forever. I’m so tired of it. I’ve had enough. I want to pull out of it. I don’t want to be there anymore but I feel trapped in it because I can’t.
TOMPKIN: And this is why your real estate is moving slowly. Because of what you just mentioned to me that you feel trapped and that you feel that you cannot get out. Is likened to quicksand and therefore everything will move very slowly. May I suggest that you do visualizations where everything speeds up.
TOMPKIN: Not necessarily time. Perhaps you could perceive your retirement as being shorter dated in the future while you are also completely as a separate manifestation focusing on playing a game with yourself to see how fast you can sell a house.
KERRY: (Chuckles). Okay.
TOMPKIN: Haha! And then you make it fun.
TOMPKIN: And perhaps you and Tara could engage a game of bets on it, or anything. Who can guess which house is going to go first. Whatever you want to make it more fun.
KERRY: I could do that with the customers too, couldn’t I?
TOMPKIN: You could! You could make the whole thing a lot of fun and it would also ease a lot of stress for people. The people that are selling in particular. For it is not in your perception or theirs, many of them anyway an easy market. And this is what they’re reading and being told so therefore they believe that it will take longer and it will be slower and therefore it is. So if you have some help in that manifestation and they believe that things perhaps could speed up with some tweaking then you will manifest that all together. And if you make it fun and light, you will once again find yourself enjoying something that you find slow and tedious. And when it’s not slow and tedious and it’s quick and your day’s flown by and you’ve got results and lots of phone calls and things are happening, all of the sudden you will once again be enjoying yourself and you will find it effortless which is how it should be. Effortless.
KERRY: Yeah. Okay.
TOMPKIN: You were lost in the hum drudgery of what you viewed to be work. And it doesn’t have to be work if you keep it light and fun. Perhaps you could also look at your environment.
TOMPKIN: In which you work and you could reduce the amount of clients you have and perhaps take on clients that are more open to selling in an unconventional manner. And perhaps step outside the box that you are comfortable in and sell their home in a way that is unusual.
TOMPKIN: And this should make it fun for everyone.
KERRY: Well that’s a challenge to the imagination. That’s for sure, because you know selling a house is not rocket science and there is only a certain process that one can employ. I have to bend my mind around that and get Tara’s help with that because doing things differently.
TOMPKIN: Doing what you’ve always done is not getting you the results you want, for your focus and your perception are the same.
KERRY: Right. Yeah.
TOMPKIN: So as per our previous discussions I would take you to a visualization of the clydesdale going down the street with the blinders on and you’re only seeing what you are always use to be seeing. You need to turn your head.
TOMPKIN: But first it is about defining what it is you enjoy, what it is you appreciate about your job. And the more you find what you appreciate about it, the specific things you appreciate about it, then you can create more of those within your job and it may be in an unconventional method of actually selling houses. You may step outside the box and engage something that other people perhaps have done in the past or even perhaps not.
KERRY: Yeah. Do something a bit differently.
TOMPKIN: As long as it’s fun.
KERRY: Yeah okay. All right, I’ll bend my mind to that. Tara’s good, no doubt got something to say about that too.
TOMPKIN: And I will be assisting you both with creative nudges.
KERRY: Thank you.
TOMPKIN: You are welcome.
KERRY: The other side of it is of course, is not to lose sight of the fact that it’s not the about long term action and activities because I don’t really want to be doing real estate at 75 or 80 thank you.
TOMPKIN: No, I would agree. So, perhaps look at it as fun for a short term.
KERRY: And I could give Tara something too.
KERRY: Get her situation happier too.
TOMPKIN: And you could also look at seeing what it could give back to you.
So if you were to look at the receiving end of your job and be appreciating of receiving and envisioning yourself receiving more in all aspects of your life. Allow yourself to receive for you are creating your own reality and many people see receiving as less than giving and I assure you, it’s not.
KERRY: No it isn’t it’s not…
TOMPKIN: Actually it teaches you more and it generates more energy in a way that is quite positive; for you begin to appreciate and you begin to have gratitude for more things around you when you actually receive and it evokes positive emotions which then are like contagions and they carry over into other areas of your life.
So I would encourage you to be open and appreciating when you receive and you will receive more.
KERRY: It’s not weakness is it? A lot of people think being given something, giving something is good but receiving something is a weakness. It puts you in the underhanded position or the underdog position.
TOMPKIN: And it is quite the opposite. It is quite the opposite. It is very, very empowering.
KERRY: Okay. Thank you.
TOMPKIN: You’re welcome.
KERRY: Am I managing Joe okay?
TOMPKIN: Joe does not need to be managed as such, as Joe has his own agenda. Joe is quite clear on his goals and he is striving everyday to work towards them. He is very focused on being his own individual agent with his own area.
KERRY: Okay, because I’m feeling a bit bulldozed by him at the moment.
TOMPKIN: I would suggest that if you are feeling that way that you snip the apron strings and allow him to find his own area because that is now what he is ready for.
KERRY: I’ve been trying to encourage him to that and I’ve been suggesting that he start working an (Inaudible) but the problem there is the Brian Webster thing. Also the (Inaudible) area which is sort of open to anybody going in. Yes, so I’ve been encouraging him to do that. Whether he will take it on, I don’t know. But he should.
TOMPKIN: It is up to him to choose where he engages employment.
KERRY: Yeah, okay yeah.
TOMPKIN: And to also find a new space, for your space is not his space.
TOMPKIN: And you are starting to feel encroached upon.
TOMPKIN: And this will cause feelings of resentment should it continue and I think sitting down and having a conversation with him, that clearly outlines how you have benefitted from each other’s assistance and how mentoring him has been a pleasure and he is now ready to fly, be free and move forward. For this will do him the world of good and he will find his own area very quickly.
KERRY: Okay, good thank you. Thank you for that, all right. So I need to look forward to the end of where I want to be. Not the end of where I want to be but what I want to do. Define what I want to do, how I want to, how I want to be if I want to be retired, where and how and what and all that but in the meantime make my work fun.
TOMPKIN: Yes, for you have a billion moments in between now and then for example. Do you not want to enjoy those moments? Is one moment not worth more than the other? No. They all have worth every moment is worth every moment. They all have the same value.
So to experience more joy in each moment then, decide within each moment how you would like to be feeling and how you would like to be engaging your day and if you feel that you need time to have fun and appreciate the planet which you are very much in tuned to and spending time with your creatures who all have a sense of dependency on you, in that you create with them. You brought them to you. And so this in itself; animal ownership is somewhat of a burden, however it can also be fun.
And by allowing time for engaging nature, perhaps you could do it also at the same time and spending time with your creatures and you will find your mind will be able to relax and you will be able to have more time in the subjective mode which is your day dreaming and you could then picture and intuitively sense what it is you need to enjoy your present more.
KERRY: Yeah, yeah.
TOMPKIN: Just doing those activities you will find you enjoy your present more.
KERRY: Okay, thank you. A question that comes out of an email that Tara sent me about doing her website? She talked about people’s essences. What’s an essence? What is your essence? What is one’s essence?
TOMPKIN: Your essence is essentially who you are. It is your energetic being, your energetic makeup. The traditional term in Australia in general is your soul. But your essence is much more than just a soul that inhibits your body. Your essence is an energetic collection of particles that spreads across dimensions and time. And you focus it into a certain timeframe with intent, in order to experience creations that you choose to engage within that timeframe. All the while, your essence may have other focuses engaging other timeframes or perhaps other dimensions.
KERRY: So does one’s essence have a name?
TOMPKIN: It does and you may be enquiring of that name and the families that you come from, from Elias.
TOMPKIN: I do not cover that as I have expressed with other people. It causes a snapping in Tara’s head.
KERRY: Ok does it? Okay, well we won’t do that. We won’t do that. Thank you.
Can I ask you a couple of health questions please?
TOMPKIN: Very well.
KERRY: Okay, back to the prosaic. Why do my dogs itch? My little dogs, my little creatures, why do they itch all the time? Do you know? Do you have an insight into that?
TOMPKIN: They are irritated.
KERRY: Are they?
TOMPKIN: They are. They appear happy when you come home, for they are happy to see you. However the rest of the day they are agitated and irritated for they are not engaging play. They’re waiting and waiting and sleeping. They also have taken up the habit of consuming particles outside in your environment in which you keep them. And this consumption of these particles is causing them irritation. They are chewing on these particles and consuming these particles because they are bored.
KERRY: Okay. Because they’re bored.
TOMPKIN: They are bored.
TOMPKIN: Your large creature is extremely devoted. He is bored beyond bored. He really needs some stimulation out of doors, perhaps engaging an environment with new smells and some physical activity that he can tolerate.
KERRY: Okay, okay thanks. So the fact that they’re scratching all night means that they’re eating something during the day?
TOMPKIN: It has manifested into an irritated skin dermatitis of sorts but it is the original manifestation is coming from their overall dissatisfaction and boredom.
TOMPKIN: This is easily remedied with some play and some time out of their normal environment.
KERRY: Yep. Away from home. Yes okay. And for me? Why can’t I smell anything? Why is my sense of smell always jammed?
TOMPKIN: One moment. Your nasal passages are actually quite inflamed. You do have food intolerances that have not been addressed. You do have some inflammation in the lining of the stomach. You do have some poor drainage from the ear canal and the lymph and this is related to inflammation and congestion. It is not just restricted to food allergies but there are some environmental allergies as well. One of them being the dust mite. And this is why when you find yourself closer to the ocean currents and breezes, you feel your nasal passages actually become less inflamed and they become clearer.
I would suggest that you pay attention to your diet and be noticing when you consume certain foods how your throat feels. For what is happening in your throat is also happening in your nose.
KERRY: Okay, thank you.
TOMPKIN: You’re welcome.
KERRY: Thank you very much for that. Now, a personal question as far as Tara is concerned. How can I help her more with getting out of her situation where she is and helping her with real estate. Is there some way I can help with it? You said…
TOMPKIN: You are helping her. I assure you, she is quite enjoying what she is learning now, for she is actually more into the nitty gritty of the education program that she is engaging.
TOMPKIN: She is engaging it at a pace that is comfortable for her, given the amount of business she has been incorporating and engaging in other areas of her life and that is now starting to slow down, so she will be able to have more time and more focus to creatively participate in your new selling adventure!
KERRY: Okay, okay that’s good. That’s good news. Thank you very much, you’ve answered the questions that I wanted to ask you today and we will talk more about the weekly questions and I really appreciate your advice and counsel thank you.
TOMPKIN: You are very welcome my friend and what do you think about the birds? Have you been noticing the birds?
KERRY: The birds?
KERRY: At my house? Yes!
TOMPKIN: Everywhere. All around you. What they have been doing lately?
KERRY: There’s been lots of birds in my birdbath. There’s been lots of birds in the tree. The cockatoos haven’t been eating my tree. I do find feathers from time to time but you will have to tell me a little bit more. Give me a few more cues or clues.
TOMPKIN: The birds are an encouragement for you to play.
KERRY: Thank you. (Laughs).
TOMPKIN: Find more time to play. They have been demonstrating play and playful actively every where you go.
TOMPKIN: And it will now make you smile and hopefully be a little nudge to spend more time playing.
KERRY: I have noticed that the greenies are out in the tree outside I’ve been working near the window for the last couple of days. And the greenies have been in the tree outside. There have been lots of birds on the bird bath. There have been birds on the railing and there have been birds sitting on the window eating the insects and the spiderwebs. So yes I have noticed the birds but I didn’t realize it was a match thank you. (Laughs).
TOMPKIN: And I often engage these birds to help me in my small way to encourage you to have fun and have playful thoughts and allow your mind to drift into pleasurable playful areas of what you might wish to engage in your day and your week and your months rather than putting it all in the inbox, shall we say.
KERRY: Yes boss. Thank you very much.
TOMPKIN: Hahaha so pay attention to the birds. (Chuckles)
KERRY: I will. Thank you very much.
TOMPKIN: You’re very welcome my friend.
KERRY: Okay, we’ll see you next time.
TOMPKIN: I’ll talk to you later, good bye.
KERRY: Thank you Tompkin bye bye.
