Me: Hi Ivo. This is my question today.
Ivo: You are feeling better after doing that deep breathing meditation.
Me: Yeah, like what's going on with that? I realize I have chronic fatigue but I wake up feeling like crud! I know I have nightmares and frankly I don't think my dreaming is all sweetness and light either....
Ivo: You wake up tired because you have been doing work on yourself as you slept. The negativity lowers your vibration. Yes, you have chosen to work at low levels.
Me: Oh great! Well, I'm going to take the high road here and just say I must have a lot of confidence in myself to have chosen to do that.
Ivo: You do. (twinkling eyes)
Me: Okay, so I heard your dietary advice. I'll repeat it here for others who want to raise their vibration. The food you eat is important. Because I'm away from home at the moment and had to adjust to living elsewhere, my anxiety rose. I went shopping and found some high carb, low fibre foods to make me feel like I was treating myself. I treated myself to some fatigue is what I did.
Okay, so today I'm getting my super fibrous buckwheat bread out of the freezer, and the salad I bought yesterday to eat today along with Mary's crackers with hummus. So I have more protein, lower carb and higher fibre foods to eat today.
Ivo: You realize that eating high carb foods helped to get you into this poor state of health, although it was not the only thing that did it.....
Ivo: So repeating these behaviours will certainly not help your energy level.
Me: Nope. But that deep breathing meditation helped me feel awesome!
Ivo: Yes, you are inhaling energy from the ether and your body is supplying endorphins and other chemicals essential to improve your mood and energy levels. And it has worked, my dear.
Me: Good. I'll definitely keep that video for later use. I think I just might institute it every morning along with my afternoon chakra meditation because I get so much from these things.
Ivo: Good idea. And now with your question of how can people support planetary ascension. May I?
Me: Of course!
Ivo: Very well, there are many ways. We just discussed one here: be in a good mood. Raise your vibration and exchange positive energy with others rather than negative energy. It is that simple.
Also working to get yourself out of the lower levels works as well. This is a longer term solution.
Me: So there are things I can do on the short term and things I can do for the long run?
Ivo: Yes. Short term, be in a good mood. Make use of your body to facilitate a better mood. Some exercise, do yoga, go to the beach, participate in sports, eat healthfully.... these things and more, such as wonderful music. It is what mood you get into when you hear the music my dear. You enjoy Guns 'n' Roses as well as Mozart. What mood do you want to be in? Or what mood are you in because you express your moods through music as well.
The other thing to do is to make use of your parasympathetic nervous system: relax. However that works for you. A massage, meditation - your 15 minutes of deep breathing helped with that, listening to calming music by candlelight..... whatever gets you into a relaxed state.
Me: So what about long term?
Ivo: Work on your ego. Diminish the ego. The way to do this is to live by the Universal laws and not by the laws recognized by your matrix. (Diminish the ego) You must be willing to stretch yourself and you will become uncomfortable at times as you look and realize that many things being done in your societies are contrary to the human condition. That being love, of course.
Me: So you have to be willing to be different.
Ivo: Yes, and for some that is already a challenge.
Me: Yeah. Okay, so what am I hearing about light codes and light bodies are changing or something? What about that?
Ivo: My dear, light codes are as I explained to you before, like passwords. Yes, your light body is changing. Not all on earth but the light beings/starseeds who have come to help raise the vibration of the earth are doing so partially by yes... your lack of language..... building the crystal grid and aligning themselves with it. This will funnel down to the physical body which can only work with these energies if it is prepared to do so.
Me: So is the physical body changing as well?
Ivo: The brain is changing its functionality to include the new connections to the light body.
Me: I'm hearing "synapses". What are they again?
Ivo: Part of what is changing, not all of it. But yes, the brain in many is being restructured to the new grid of the 5th dimension.
Me: What about children being born?
Ivo: They have both.
Me: When I read that back, I really see that we are not just physical bodies. When we are working at aligning ourselves to the crystal grid .... I can really see that a physical human on earth is only one aspect of a greater Self.
Ivo: That is true my dear. That is why you have such a large subconscious. You are unknown to yourselves.
Me: Okay so I assume you don't have a subconscious.
Ivo: I do not. However I multitask. I can focus myself on multiple streams or tasks at the same time.
Me: Cool! So if you were aligning with the crystal grid, would you be aware of it?
Ivo: I would. However I am not at the moment realigning myself. Do you see how amazing this is for your people?
Me: Okay I want to ask what role being an empath plays in this?
Ivo: My dear, you came to transmute negative energies.
Me: So I vacuum them up and what do I do with them?
Ivo: You feel them yourself and then change your mood to a positive mood. That transmutes the energy.
Me: I just stayed in a negative mood a lot.
Ivo: You were overwhelmed and did not know how to work with your energy. Knowing that you are a multidimensional energy being is the most important thing you need to know about yourself, right at this moment.
Me: There's more?
Me: So this morning when I woke up tired and crabby I must've been negative busting last night. So I woke up thinking my day was done for and now since I did that meditation I feel better. So because I'm in a good mood I guess I just did something with the negative shit from last night's sleep, and reenergized myself.
Ivo: You know how to reenergize yourself now.
Me: Why do I feel like a battery?
Ivo: Because this is the only frame of reference you have to thinking about energy: batteries, electricity, gasoline for your automobiles... not humans. No...
Me: We're energy.
Ivo: Everything is.
Me: Well, winter will be the acid test. Without the sunshine, I'm totally dead.
Ivo: We shall see. You will learn more before the winter comes and your chronic fatigue might improve before then anyway. Your supplements are good. You realize you gain energy from the sun and from the air. You do not always have to eat it. You have a better feel for what tires you out.
Me: Okay, so the other day when my empath button was on, I got that totally creepy feeling from that guy on the bike at the Tim Hortons.
Ivo: Yes. You are improving so now you realize that you have a powerful tool on your hands as well as something that can tire you out. As with all tools, you must learn to use it properly. You know you need not speak to such a person when you get a stream of malevolent energy from them as you did him. The same goes for the man in the restaurant who was clearly interested in you as well, as he sat with his wife. It is a tool for you to use, my dear. It was not given to you to harm you. It did because it as you say, "did not come with an owner's manual." I might add for all the times you have used that sarcastic comment that you have not yet consulted with the owner's manual of your new auto.
Me: I haven't because I haven't needed it yet. Maybe when I want to play mp3s I'll look at it.
Ivo: Or ask Charlie.
Me: Yeah, see, that's why I don't need to read it - he can answer my questions.
Me: Okay, so am I vacuuming up all energy or just energy directed at me? Because that seems to be the most prominent.
Ivo: Energy directed at you would be the most prominent, however you can pick up all energy. When you were with your family, a very negative environment, much of it was directed at you as well as just being a negative place with many negative emotions. Your thyroid already showed signs of dysfunction at 17 so you were already affected.
Me: No kidding. It would be hard to get out of there unscathed.
Ivo: And you did not. After that, it was the oil additive factory you worked in for 12 years, also a very negative place. But you had to learn to stick up for yourself. You made some progress, a miracle considering what you dealt with.
Me: Then I left for Europe! LOL

Me: Ivo, this is a HUUUUGGGGE can of worms! Do you know how long we can talk on just this one subject? You said, of people who piss me off:
They are helping you, not harming you. Do not see it as harm.
My dear, you do not see life on your earth correctly.
You said it was "love in action." That somebody does something and I get mad at them - this anger shows me .... shhhh ... I haven't finished this thought yet...... this anger shows me where I have to work on myself.
Ivo: That is correct, my dear. I did say that. Also before you shushed me, I was pointing out to you the irrationality of getting angry at everyone who does not do as you wish. Look at the numbers: there are 7 billion people on your earth. Do you control them all?
Me: Okay, Spock. I'll play. No.
Ivo: Do you believe that every one of these people will behave as you want them to?
Me: No, of course not!
Ivo: Then if you believe this, why do you become angry when they do not?
Me: Because something might happen to me, like I might suffer a loss, have an accident, be inconvenienced, it might change my whole bloody life and turn it in another direction!! (control, anxiety)
Ivo: Perhaps this would be a good idea, my dear. You are irrational in your beliefs.
Ivo: Have you ever considered the opposite? That somebody has come into your life and completely changed everything around for the better? Somebody has brought light to your life that it did not have before....
Me: Uh huh. And were you thinking of anyone in particular, Ivo?
Me: Damn! He's got me again!
Ivo: What is more, you live on a planet of 7 billion people, why do you believe that nobody must influence your life? Of course they influence your life. That is the intention behind it.
However, if you vibrate at a high level, the people who come into your life to influence it will vibrate at a high level as well. Do you see? This is part of the co-creation. Because you co-create at higher levels, you interact at a physical level as well. It cannot be avoided. Yes, I know. You have tried.
Me: My experiences with many people....
Ivo: .... have been negative. And this I will tell you is the incorrect attitude. You have had many learning experiences. You are learning how to be unconditionally loving.
Me: Geezus, I'd hate to see my report card.....
Ivo: You have had much to deal with, my dear. And you live in a culture that tells you you must be angry at others and in order to feel like less of a victim, you must sue them or hurt them in some other way. You must "clear your name". Is your name dirty?
Me: Well, they're clearing their name because it affects their work status or social status or whatever, like a bad credit rating.
Ivo: Yes, as a child you learn. You are socialized to believe things that are contrary to the soul. So much so in many cases, the soul is a tiny squeak compared to the loud voice of ego for many. Yes, you live in an ego driven system which is constantly reasserting its ideas daily.
You must learn to ignore these ideas and to supplant your own ideas, the Truth, into your own mind. You can begin with the exercise of seeing yourself as a soul first and a personality in a physical body second. Repeat the affirmation: "I am a soul expressing itself as a personality." If you focus on the soul, you will access more of it. You have shut yours down for so many years, my dear, as many do, because they are either not aware of it or continue to live a lifestyle that does not require its use. And, to be sure, your world is made up of all things focusing on things not required at soul level. It is designed to be that way.
Starseeds are here on your planet to bring their souls to the planet. This will speed its healing. This means do not focus on your shopping lifestyle as you call it. Buy what you require but do not shop daily - get your shopping done and be done with it. Go out into nature for walks. Nature was put there for your soul. You enjoy the beach. Go there. It is not only free, so it does not require money which of course, is a soul-less creation, but you feel the sand on your feet which helps grounding - being bare foot, and the water around your body which energizes and cleanses your chakras.
My dear, you must change you lifestyle. You have realized that even living in this low-consciousness city that you live in now, you can escape to the surrounding countryside and enjoy the earth more as it was intended for you, not with its plastic signage, asphalt parking lots and greasy burger joints. Yes, be in the sun, the water and under the sky. It is healing for you. Yes, I am there as well. Sometimes you see me watching you. Sometimes I do not make myself seen.
Me: What about the winter?
Ivo: There is much to do in the wintertime as well. You can always take the great escape to the Caribbean as you intend to do in future winters. But there is much to be enjoyed in the winter as well, sports for many, and when you get your place in the country you can build fires outside and huts to protect you from the cold. You can still sit outside. You ice skate. Focus on doing what you can do without paying money. The more you do that, the more you live outside of the matrix, because the matrix is all about money.
Yes, your upcoming yoga festival has costs of course. And the entertainers must be paid. I am not saying life must be simple however I am trying to make the point that a life of soul is one worth living.
Me: I can imagine how confusing living here must be for kids. I know I was confused.
Ivo: You were. You were upset constantly at the behaviour of your parents. What you learned was wrong. What you learned was loveless. At best, many on your planet learn conditional love.

1. Love is the removal of negativity in order to heal the self. Whether you do it alone or you do it in a relationship, it's still the same thing.
2. When I swear at another, I swear at myself because I make mistakes too. The law of oneness says were are all from the same source; therefore all one. Don't mistreat yourself.
3. Anger is not power. To someone vibrating above anger's vibration, anger is disempowering.
4. Change the way I see interactions with others. When someone annoys me, they are trying to help me remove a block to love - most likely the habit I have to being annoyed with them. They, according to this other thing I was given, are trying to teach me patience.
5. Don't say that you are a personality/ego with a soul... y'know, up there somewhere. Say you are a soul who is expressing itself with you. You are an expression of your soul. (Who is powerful, very powerful, btw!)
6. We currently live in a matrix world which was imposed on us and is not congruent with the normal environment of the human. In this environment we are trying to "return to love" by changing the emotional environment of our world. When someone angers you, they are trying to help you create that world. It's how you see it and it's what you do with it that counts.
Your power lies in listening to your soul, not in behaving as those around you do. ~ Ivo
Practice every day: "I am a soul expressing itself upon this earth in this body/with this personality." or "I am my soul expressing itself."
Me: Yeah, maybe I picked up on this because the Law of Attraction is probably the first thing people go for when they think of the universal laws. You've told me to learn them, I can see the reasoning behind this, and so I've decided I want you to teach me, and in doing so, everybody else will get lessons as well.
Ivo: Good idea, my dear.
Me: Okay, so I heard something earlier today that, taking the fact that I swear at other drivers on the road as an example, which has improved by the way, that first of all I'm disregarding the universal law of oneness: because we are all one (energy) and just appear to be separate at this level, one must forgive others their errors.
For me, there's a difference between forgiving and forgetting (allowing the perpetrator to re-offend) and forgiving and not forgetting is hard. I find if I forgive someone then I'll forget and they can do it again.
Ivo: My dear, this is because you do not understand forgiveness. This is a lesson you are still learning. You are thinking you have changed that person; and that they will not do it again. Not at all. People will change when they want to.
Me: You're not kidding. I feel like I'm failing miserably too.
Ivo: To forgive, we'll start from an energetic perspective, to forgive, you are elevating your energy such that there is no link between yourself and the offender's deed anymore. When the offender attempts to reoffend, this is not suitable to you because you no longer hold the corresponding energy. Because your energy is higher, you are more empowered.
When you have the corresponding energy, such as your metaphor of lock and key, you hold the key to unlock the offender's offenses, so to speak.... when you throw the key away and the offender attempts to reoffend they are dealt with differently. And that is a matter of choice. You have noticed from the past when you dealt with others' negative behaviours well, that they stopped. They learned not to do it anymore. It was wasted on you. You did not change them - they just did not bother you with it anymore.
Yes, and I might point out to you that some people offend simply to get your attention. There are tricksters if you will, who will play pranks to get you to react, because they like the feeling of control over you. One way of dealing with it, depending on the severity of the prank, is not to react. You are an emotional person and have difficulty with not reacting. They like the feeling of "gotcha".
My dear, much more goes on between humans than you realize. Life is an energy exchange. Look at it as if it were a board game that you would play. We will make an example: X is feeling a bit annoyed at his boss because of something he had to do. He is feeling disempowered because he had to do something he did not wish to do..... His boss, Y, is feeling powerful because he has the authority to make people do things that they do not wish to do.
Me: I'll bet mine felt like that. I never wanted to do what I was doing.
Ivo: Yes, which is part of the reason you are on a disability pension. You worked at things that were disempowering to you.
Me: Well, hon, there aren't that many job descriptions regarding channeling extraterrestrials.
Ivo: You could have used your telepathic abilities otherwise, such as with talking to animals.
Me: Yeah, but they were shut down a lot too. Plus I wasn't that aware of them.
Ivo: Very well, we will continue..... So X and Y are having their power struggles at the job. Along comes A. She is you. X is annoyed and wishes to regain some of his power back. He sees A so he makes a negative comment that invites reaction. Yes, you suffered thru much of this in the one workplace until they were told of sexual harassment laws. You did suffer. .... So A reacts to X. She loses power and hands it over to him in the form of energy. This is an energy exchange. You must learn to look at all interactions between people as exchanges of energy.
When you are in a good mood, and you choose to react to someone angrily, your energy decreases. Where does it go? To the one who made you angry. Yes. Think of this as a reason to be in better control of your emotions - or to keep your energy to yourself and not give good energy away to others who perhaps do not deserve it. (I think too that people learn to continue pissing off other people because it makes them feel better. Maybe that's why. Y'know when people say, "I don't know. It just makes me feel good when I do it!")
Me: So if I think of myself as an energy thermometer. Some days it's high and some days it's low and probably hits every temperature on the scale along the way throughout the day. It depends on what I think about and it depends on what happens when I react to people I'm around.
Ivo: Yes, and considering as a starseed you are here to help the earth, it would be best if you were at a higher level, would it not?
Me: Of course.
Ivo: So you must learn to carry on your day to day transactions with others in such a way that does not leave you in a bad mood. Otherwise you are no good to anyone.
Yes for you as well, being an empath, this is difficult because you are as you call it "vacuuming up others' energies".
Me: Yes.... so I'm learning to shut that off. That's probably the first step. Shutting off the vacuum! LMAO Stop suckin' it up! Yeah!
Ivo: You are learning to work with your energy.
Me: Shit! The first I ever heard of having energy was when my father started talking about aura's and we thought he was nuts!
Ivo: This is not the case now, though. You do realize you are completely comprised of energy.
Ivo: You also learned falsely to bolster your mood with sugar, which of course is addiction.
Me: Well, sorry, there was no love in my family of origin, so I had to substitute.
Ivo: Which got you addicted. Fortunately you do not have the same problem to the same level as you had earlier.
Me: No. I don't think anyone had that level ever. How could I have dealt with my bad moods without destroying my adrenals and pancreas back then?
Ivo: Yes, you did not know. You have learned much as you have gotten older.
Me: Okay, so someone's done something that really pissed me off. I'm fuming mad. What do I do?
Ivo: Your 12 step approach of the inventory sheet works well. The resentment inventory sheet. Where you look at your part in the transaction. That helped. Sometimes you completely turned around.
But you must, and I insist, must, look at things differently.
Please accentuate this:
WHEN ANOTHER PERSON ANGERS YOU, YOU MUST LOOK AT THEM AS A TEACHER. THEY ARE TEACHING YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO LEARN TO MASTER IN ORDER TO REACH A STATE OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. YES, THEY ARE TAKING THE CONDITIONS AWAY THAT STOP YOU FROM REACHINGYOUR ULTIMATE GOAL OF BLISS AND HAPPINESS.
They are helping you, not harming you. Do not see it as harm.
My dear, you do not see life on your earth correctly. You see it as nasty, harmful, horrendous.... yes, it certainly is these things but they are all there because your people are at a low vibrational level, a loveless state permeates your societies. EVERY NASTY THING THAT HAPPENS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GROW AS A BEING. Yet some wallow in pity that we do not comprehend. Yes, well, your people are encouraged and this is through your media as well, to look at your lives as others keeping you from what is rightly yours. The neighbours that smoke upstairs, the low level of income, the low grades of food on your planet, for example. Are all calling to be changed.....
Me: You're not kidding. I'd love to change my neighbours and their damned cigarette stink.
Ivo: And so you will, my dear! This is coming. Yes, I do not like you inhaling this toxin either but you will move and you will love your new circumstances. They will be as you asked.
Yes, your marketers look at these things that people cry victim over. Our automobiles run on petrol! This is killing the earth! This is killing us! What of our children! What world will they have to live in?! Then someone invents the electric car. These are opportunities marketers LOOK for.
Me: Yeah, I guess.
Ivo: They do not see it as the gas automobiles are destroying the environment.... they look at it as an opportunity to make money. And they do! They are not waiting for someone else to do it - they do it.
Me: So, okay, my thing is as soon as I deal with one "opportunity", another "opportunity" takes its place.
Ivo: My dear, if you saw this as love in action, you would not dread these things as you currently do. You would be happier about them. The situations themselves would not weigh on your psyche as, "Oh God here we go again! More shit!".... I believe is what you say. They are opportunities to improve your lot in life, your human relations, perhaps finances... your marketers and businesspeople know that problems are opportunities. They do not seek problems, they do not make problems but when there are problems they deal with them effectively. Yes, you think of the VP at Rogers, Michael, when you sent the fax to the wrong party.... you thought he would have your head but he did not even break a sweat. He most likely turned the situation around to his advantage. That is someone who is in control of his life. (Me: but apparently not of me, heh heh heh)
Ivo: You must practice this as well. I will prompt you if you like. Ask, "What opportunity is being presented to me for me to change?"
Ivo: Also because the law of oneness says we are one, if you swear at a driver while driving (I've been good, haven't done it this week, folks! little angel!) because they made a mistake, when you make a mistake you then in effect swear at yourself. You do, my dear, you know it. When you behave similarly to the one that you were angry at for their behaviour, you treat yourself in kind. This must stop. Be nice to others and you will be nice to yourself. Forgive them their mistakes at least. Then you will not be so hard on yourself.
Ivo: The criticism you lash out at others comes back to you because you start with yourself first. (Makes sense... being that I'm the focal point of my soul's expression on earth... everything starts with me, and we're all one anyway - law of oneness) Be kind to yourself and be kind to others; be kind to others and you will be kinder to yourself. Whichever is easiest, start with that. Or do both.
Me: You make so much sense!
Ivo: I do. I live by natural law.

I was having coffee outside and brought my notebook because Ivo and I were still chatting. I was also talking to this dog who told me she could smell "meat restaurants" (near McD's and Wendys) and told me she was sniffing for ants because she likes the taste of them. To each his own, I say! I got off her that she didn't like the third woman who joined the two sitting there, and sure enough, there was no acknowledgment on either part. Just practicing being who I really am ................Anyway... Ivo said here's something you can practice daily, in the mirror or not, whatever your preference. He says I think of myself as a personality, with "oh yeah, there's a soul up there!" Wrong. Reverse it. Think of yourself as a soul with a personality as a means of expressing itself. He says that's far more empowering. To the extent that you do this, your thinking will change. Now practice daily: I AM MY SOUL EXPRESSING ITSELF. Want more Ivo?

Me: Okay, other ways I don't feel like I fit in. Well, now that I'm older, a helluva 'lot of ways.....
Ivo: And does that bother you?
Me: No, not really. They're younger people; they're different from my generation.
Ivo: And you are also different from your generation. You do not think the way they do. Yes we discussed it the other day when in the 70's that man who was interested in you at the bowling alley, approached your father and spoke to him in an attempt to get him to agree to letting you date him. You were incensed that he did this - you felt it was you he should speak to, not your father. You were not a daddy's girl in the princess respect - you were often at lagerheads with your father because you did not like his old fashioned, patriarchal, authoritarian ideas... you are a starseed and in your soul you know that the female is equal to the male. Yes, that is equality. If there is one male left of the species, the species will die. If there is one female left of the species, the species will die. If there is one of each left, the species can live. That is equality at a basic physical level.
Me: That's why I used to say, "Not if he was the last man on earth!"
Ivo: Yes, you met many of those. At a higher level, all are one. That is the Law of Oneness and why you should forgive other drivers their mistakes rather than swearing at them, my dear.
Me: I'm a work in progress.
Ivo: Well, let us work on some progress here. It will make your driving experience more pleasant.
Me: Okay, so when you're flying your spaceship and some other spaceship almost slams into you, don't you get pissed off....?
Ivo: This does not happen my dear.
Me: Forget it then.... let's move on....
Okay, Ivo let's talk about one of my fears: I fear that if I feel sorry for somebody I'll let them take advantage of me (and that's not in the sexual sense - I have good boundaries there). What are your comments about, say that guy that I roomed with - I felt sorry for him. It seems as soon as I do that, I'm a cooked goose. I start trying to help them. In Codependent Anonymous they say it's a compulsive problem. I'm sure there are other starseeds out there that end up doing the damndest things because they feel sorry for others....
Ivo: Yes, you have had friends who live in circumstances where they struggle. I must tell you that the reason they struggle is because they do not know how to take proper care of themselves, such as financially, or getting better jobs, or with children..... they do not know. Your doing things for them is not going to help them learn! It will just keep them crippled, and perhaps this is an exaggeration of things but it gets the point across. You do not allow others to do their own work. They must do that. They must learn. You are interfering otherwise. You are not only taking the horse to water, you are spoon feeding them the water but you forget to drink yourself. And then you get thirsty, and then angry, and feel taken advantage of. I realize that you see this situation yourself. You are aware of it. Why you do this, of course, is due to your parents. You took care of particularly your mother, emotionally, day in and day out as a child, listening to her complain.... which you hate. When a child, and I know you realize this, caretakes a parent, they feel empowered. You are using these situations to bypass your own low self esteem which of course also came from your childhood. You are not doing your work on yourself. But your mother had no right and those who ask now for things they should supply themselves also have no right.
Me: Trust me, she didn't ask. She demanded it. Even when I told her no, she still demanded it.
Ivo: My dear she had no right to do this to you. And those who do not know how to care for themselves do not have the right either. You are facing a potential manipulative situation right now. For now you are avoiding it. You feel it easier to deal with when your emotions are calmer. Because you get angry and fearful. Once you are calmer you can deal better with it. You can say no. If it is not requested of you in a way you can answer yes or no to, it is not direct speech. So do not respond as if a question has been asked because it has not. (I'm thinking I'm drawn to people who try to take advantage of me - one because I'm used to it and two because it was how I bolstered self esteem as a child).
You must realize that because of the low vibration of your planet, there are many who lie, steal, cheat, manipulate, hurt, harm.... you understand the range of low states. You as a starchild must learn to deal with all of these by holding to the Truth and the Truth comes from your conscience; your higher values are there. Dealing with a manipulator by counter manipulating is not advisable. It puts you on their level. My dear, work on respecting and loving yourself. Do not think, "Oh I'll just do this this one time..." It does not stop the cycling we spoke of, it continues it. You must break the cycle. Remember I told you that your strength is in the Truth which is spoken by your soul. Listen to your soul.
The other thing that is a particular problem on your planet is people who do not do any work on themselves. And starseeds, with their willingness to help, get caught up in that as well. I say that I am a teacher, do I interfere with your lessons? No. I do not. Do I do things for you that you should do yourself? No, I do not. There are many, many people on your planet who do not realize that life is about learning. It is learning from the minute they awake in the morning until the minute they go to bed, and arguably when they sleep they are still learning. Dreams are teachers to those who will listen.
Many attempt not to learn anything new. They find a comfortable spot in their life, however that is defined, and they stay there. They defend their ideas because they do not wish to change them. Life is about change, my dear. If it is about learning, it is about changing.
When you help a person (as in doing it for them) who should be learning a lesson you interfere with their progress. They become more involved with attempting to manipulate others into doing their work for them, but then this can allow control by the others. You had this relationship with your mother for a long time. She had control over you because you would not learn to use the Law of Abundance to manifest your own good. You turned to her because apparently she was better at it than you were. First you must believe that you are worthy of this Abundance because when you think less of yourself, you get less. One who thinks they are a lesser being will manifest lesser circumstances.
Me: So I'm in these circumstances right now because of being sick.
Ivo: Yes, you are pensioned because you cannot cope with the stresses of earth life. It is unfortunate that your sensitivity was dealt with in the way it was by your family, and this certainly contributed to your misfortune, but you have every reason now to rise above the misfortune that you manifested and to manifest something better for yourself. You realize you are more powerful than you previously thought, you are not a victim as your parents had raised you to be, and that you are capable of far, far more. And I have told you before, as your earth raises its vibration as it ascends to higher dimensions, this will suit you as well because you function better at higher vibrations.
And for all the starseeds who are suffering at earth's low level, know that you are here to bring what is higher down to earth, not to manifest earth's misery. This is why you came. You are capable of learning quickly what you need to learn to bring the light of the cosmos to earth. I have told Sharon to study the universal laws which we all live by, and you can as well.
Me: Okay, Ivo, here's the idea of "trying to fit in" that I want to talk about. I'll bet there are even more extreme cases of this but let me look back to some examples.
One was drinking and socializing, going to bars..... I'd go and get hammered because I couldn't tolerate the alcohol because of my sensitivity level..... seriously if I hadn't denied my sensitivity I'd have had a totally different life. But I denied it because I was trying to fit in (plus my parents told me to deny it). I mean, hey, what's alcohol? Poison! With a large dose of white sugar in the mix. Yeah, no problem there. So I decided to switch to beer. Unbeknownst to me at the time I was already a Celiac.
So I'd go to these bars and dance, which I liked. I always liked music too, which I expect they have at higher levels..... Okay. Then these guys, who often were drunk, would hit on me. For some reason it never made sense to me. You go to a bar, drink stuff that you're playing Russian Roulette with, at least I was, and then the fun stopped when somebody came along and started lying to me. I always preferred meeting guys other ways. Like at work, which is not always a good idea. I honestly think what I thought was I'd meet this wonderful man who would be honest, truthful, compassionate, caring, funloving, adventurous, smart..... in a bar. Boy, was I deluded! But this is, I think, that as a starseed I have this idea of life on other planets being here. I honestly expected this a lot of the time. I dropped a long hard fall over the years..... to see the reality of where I was living clearly. It took me a long time to get clear on what was in front of me. To get galactic delusions out of my head. I still thought I was living there! I must carry more past life memories than I've realized.
Things other people were doing I liked parts of but not all of it. The other thing is I've gone thru my life having conversations with people that I thought were "dry". They'd be talking to me, and I'd be thinking, "Really, is this you? That's it?" Of course when you dug deeper, they'd start complaining. Oh! So this is the real you? Holy shit! Where's the door?! (I've since learned how to fix that: say something incredibly positive. Be a beacon of brightness and light. They hate it.)
And that's another part of my problem, Ivo. There are things others are doing that I just don't care about. I just don't care. And it seems so important to them. I remember one guy I was with was happy about keeping his lawn looking nice. Boy, he'd hate me for a neighbour. Or others had goals of being rich. Well I couldn't relate to that either. The neighbour bragged about her daughter being the manager of the department store.
So I basically ended up with nobody, other than my sister I've felt like I've been adrift all my life. And I still kind of feel that way but I don't really care anymore. I like my FB friends because I relate to them. We have similar experiences and I can just weed out the ones who talk about things I don't care about. Most people with aliens as their avatar(?) will get friended.
Or jobs! I'd be working in these Fortune 500 companies and I'd be looking at what the company's goal was and there was all this nice talk about this that and the next thing but you know they were out to make money. And it was like you were in this place that was lying its ass off to put themselves in a good light.
And you'd be working with these people whose heads were so big it's a wonder they fit through the door. THIS was what I was supposed to be grooming myself to do? Or become? I'm not surprised I wasn't successful in Fortune 500 companies. I thought a lot of them were just assholes.

e: Starseeds come from higher dimensions where they live lives of love and caring for each other and then they end up here. I commented the other day as yet another driver honked at me for goofing up, how unforgiving this world is.
Ivo, what I want to discuss today is this feeling of not fitting in. I KNOW I have expectations that are soul-level. When I'm driving in an unfamiliar city and I screw up, I expect that instead of honking at me and flipping me off, the driver will slow down, wave and smile at me, like "have a good day!" THAT NEVER happens.
Ivo: And yes, I might comment my dear that you are a bit loose with the words at times as well. You have become like them, not like your soul. This needs to be changed.
Me: Well, yeah, I get bitchy too.
Ivo: But you are not forgiving. Be like your soul, my dear, not like the world around you. This will make a huge change in your state of mind, your emotional state, and will change your fortunes. Do not believe what you were told - that being nice is weakness. It is not.
Me: Yeah, that totally makes sense. I can hear what my soul says too. She always tells me to take the high road and I don't.
Ivo: No you do not. And you will feel better when you do. Listen to your soul - she is at a higher level than you are, and she knows best. For you and for your planet. Listen to her.
Me: Wow! I'm getting gooseflesh. I feel like I've just discovered the pot of gold....
Ivo: That has been sitting at your feet all your life my dear!
Me: I feel like crying.....
Ivo: Yes, you are emotional but that is fine. DO NOT BE LIKE THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU that you are angry at. There are other things that you do, my dear, that you see in others that you dislike yet you do them yourself. I am reminding you of one situation right now.
Ivo: You are here to make the difference for these people. Do not behave like them. Yes, do not think yourself above them... that is ego. Listen to your soul. Be who you truly are at a soul level. Yes, I realize when you were younger you tried to shake off your goody-two-shoes image. Do not listen to this thinking; this is the negativity of your planet - yet my dear - you have the power to overcome this. Your power lies in this, not in behaving as those around you do. You are a starseed from a higher vibration. Be yourself. You know who this person is - you have listened to her prompt you all your life. You know!
Ivo: You have experienced much negativity in your life. And do not wish to reexperience it. However the process is unless you clear it, it keeps recurring. You know this and just keep running from it instead of dealing with it. Deal with it and change your thinking - or completely change your thinking and create new circumstances.
Me: I wasn't dealing with (info withheld).
Ivo: No, I am speaking of lesser situations that could be tolerable. You are thinking of your current apartment situation. I am concerned of the cigarette smells in your vicinity, coming from the neighbours. You do not need to focus on the woman upstairs. She is negative but currently is not problematic. Let it go.
Me: So how else are starseeds caught between two worlds?
Ivo: There are many ways and it is different for each person. You must look at what you do not like. If it is the behaviour of other people, then you have a choice how to respond to it. Listen to your soul in that respect. If the garbage in the park annoys you, clean it up. You did used to clean up the garbage on the street in front of your apartment in Toronto. I commend you on this. You did not wait for a clean-up day - you simply did it because you did not like the garbage. When people lie to you, do not deal with them. You have a problem with manipulators. Do not give in. When others are engaging in behaviours that are not in line with the Truth, do not accommodate them because YOU LOWER YOUR OWN VIBRATION, yes, there are consequences for you as well, and you allow them to remain at a lower vibration. There is always personal responsibility. Try to align with the Truth. The more successful you are, the easier it becomes.
Me: I think of General Brock who got shot for being over 6 foot tall when the soldiers behind him were 5'4". Vulnerable.
Ivo: True. You feel like you would stick out. My dear, you have attempted your entire life to "fit in". You are still doing it. My question to you is "fit in to what?" You are here to stand out. You are beginning to do it in your living situation but you must persevere.
Me: When does it get easy?
Ivo: When you are in good practice.

Me: Okay, Ivo can you tell me, why do starseeds pick horrible parents and have awful childhoods experiencing abuse? This pertains to me as well, as you know. [personal part deleted]
Ivo: You have been reading things lately that contradict your traditional therapy models. You do not have to keep reliving the past.
Me: Yeah but I do. If I haven't changed it, my thinking keeps bringing it up again.
Ivo: Yes, you have realized that life is cyclical, not a straight line although your time and calendar systems tend to keep you thinking it is.
Me: Yeah well, how do I stop the cycling?
Ivo: Awareness. You have not yet developed the means to be aware in all of your daily activities. Yes, those who do meditation and other "eastern" disciplines develop awareness faster than you do with your traditional psychology. You still run on "auto pilot" quite often and these are old behaviours.
Ivo: Psychology takes small bites off at a time. Eastern awareness disciplines will crack the entire egg open at once. You are using your higher self and she is teaching you (or he, some are masculine) to resolve the situation using higher methods. My dear.... you need to even learn this as well.
Me: Well, pitch the matrix lifestyle again Sharon. Okay.
Yeah, it makes sense to use the soul rather than our society to "fix my problems".
Ivo: Your twelve step groups are programs designed with a spiritual approach. This is one of the first ways a person with problems understands that they are a spirit as well as a physical being. But I will tell you that spirit is most important. It is eternal; you are not.
Me: Okay so why do starseeds often have difficult lives here on earth?
Ivo: There are many reasons why. First it has to do with bloodlines. You are seeking certain bloodlines to be born into. Why? Because of the genes. You need certain genes to be able to do certain things. On your earth now, it is not "the sky is the limit". No. Much of the genetics of the bloodlines have been altered for starters, dumbed down. Then there was the question at the time you were born that you had only 2 active strands. So we needed two bloodlines that would meet with strong Pleiadian genes (your mother, who you inherited your looks, blonde hair and blue eyes from) and your father's whose mother was showing signs of being psychic. Your father was telepathic, clairvisual and could astral travel but earlier in life he was not aware. Those starseeds who are on earth now are in their families for a reason and one is genetics.
The other reason is because you were abused, you spent a lot of time alone as a child in your room. You learned to prefer your own company to everybody's but the dog who was aware of how you felt and loved you. You still miss her. Not to worry. You know she is around. When children are abused they leave their bodies to escape the misery. No my dear, until now you have not spent much time in yours. You thought you were but you were half out. Now that you have worked on your lower chakras and reconnected to your body more you are more in it.
Me: Okay, what other reasons?
Ivo: My dear, for the learning. You must be aware of what it is on the earth that needs to be changed. One thing of course is child abuse.
Me: Yeah, everyone knows that.
Ivo: True, but an abused starseed can bring "to the table" a new way of looking at the issue. Let us face it, you do think differently than most your age.
Me: True, I even LOOK different than most my age. Yeah, I guess there aren't too many 56 year olds who spend their time hunting down UFO landing spots and who channel ETs. Not too too many.
Ivo: You are different my dear. That is why you could not find a man like yourself on your earth. You are one of the first wave and until then there were not too many starseeds around.
Me: Of course, I was the first to volunteer. You know I plan on sitting on my ass having a good time after I leave earth.
Ivo: That is your prerogative.
Me: ....He doesn't believe me....
Ivo: I know you.... if there is a job to do, something to be changed... you sometimes drag yourself to do it, but you do it.
Ivo: (continuing) If there is a starseed whose parent is religious and this child learns to despise the religion, then what do you think this child will become a crusader against in their adulthood?
Me: That's not necessarily abuse, though.....
Ivo: Well, it is control of the believers and there are some definite abuses in your religious systems....
Me: True. But it's not necessarily that parent or those parents who are the abusers. They may have had good intentions.
Ivo: Yes but I switched to the "big picture".
Me: Okay. But I heard what you said about there being many types of abuse.
Ivo: Starseeds learn first hand what issues need to be changed. They may not be able to change it on a physical level....
Me: Ahhhhh. But at a higher level things are changing....
Ivo: Always. They bring higher energy to it. You all have an energy signature and this energy you have is always there, ready for you to use, or to be used in the collective unconscious.
Me: Yeah. I see it. But don't plain old humans have it too?
Ivo: Not as high. They are not as evolved as you are.
Me: Right, because I'm a starseed and I come from a higher dimension. Ah hah. So the collective energy of all those coming in as opposed to what it was before 1960 is probably very dynamic by comparison.
Ivo: Yes. And you are wondering, are not all souls powerful, even human souls? They are, yes. However it is the energy as applied to your earth realm that we are speaking of.
Me: Right. I think I'm less confused. The other question was why do some plain old humans act nicer than some starseeds?
Ivo: There are some evolved humans. And all starseeds are affected by your world so consciously there are not always "nice". Sometimes they are nasty.
