I’m enjoying swapping emails with Michael Tamura, the psychic healer and teacher based at Mount Shasta, in Northern California.
Each email I get from Michael teaches me something new.
The other day he sent me an email – and in it he responded to something I’d written him, about how I learned to dispel fear while walking the Camino by asking myself: What’s the worst that can happen?
I said to him that when you answer that truthfully, and you examine that answer from all angles, without fear, then the worst is usually not so bad after all.
Here is what Michael wrote in reply:
I like your mantra, too: “What’s the worst that can happen?” I’ve used that myself many times. It buys us space in relationship to the fears that may arise in the mind. And, space is not the final frontier – it needs to be the first!
When we have space to be that which we are already, we’re not only fine, we’re magnificent. When we don’t give ourselves that space to be, then, we become ill. So, simply put, illness is an illusion we live in when we can’t allow ourselves to be as we truly are as spirit.
When we believe in death, we reincarnate because we have to. Waking up really boils down to waking up from the illusion of death.
Clairvoyance is not just about seeing auras, chakras, energies and spirit. It’s about seeing the truth clearly. The path of a clairvoyant is truly to wake up to the whole truth. In the process of waking up, we start to see more clearly beyond our “normally” limited perception.
For the “average” person, he’s looking at so many images in his mind that are what contains thoughts and feelings and everything he seems to experience that he believes that house of cards, so to speak, is reality.
Amongst all of that, of course, are those that hold fear and judgments and everything else. These are the “logs” or “planks” that Jesus was talking about when he said we had to remove the log out of our own eye before we can see clearly enough to help remove a splinter from our brother’s eye.
Why is it that something about someone else bothers us so much at times? That which is being bothered is really inside of us rather than anything about that other person, of course.
Spirit is never disturbed or agitated. Only that which we call the ego. And, the ego is nothing more than those images that we’ve structured in a certain way to ensure its survival. That’s why it’s so convincing – if we are living in those pictures.
“That which is being bothered is really inside of us…” – how true is that and how hard is it to – potentially – deal with the consequences of the truth of it 🙂
Hi, bhasmah! It’s not difficult to deal with it at all – IF, we are not wanting to separate. As spirit, we are and there is nothing to bother us. The moment we choose to separate and imagine ourselves to be that which we are conscious of, in other words some sort of a body, then, everything bothers us. We’ll either be attracted to it and want it or we’ll be repulsed by it and want to get rid of it or change it. Or, we wouldn’t care about it and ignore it. All three are ways we resist that which we believe exists. When we return our awareness to awareness itself, we realize that we simply are that we are. As such, we joyously celebrate life. So, if you find that something is disturbing you, laugh first before anything else. It’s not by getting rid of the disturbance that you will find your happiness or peace or freedom. It is in choosing to be as you truly are, that is happy or joyous, that you find that what previously you thought was disturbing you is not only no more, but that it never was. Once you can laugh, then, you’ll be able to love. Then, if you can love, look and you’ll see the truth shining ever more brightly in your face.
Peace be with you always,

Thank you, Michael, and sorry about my tardy response, but I’ve been lost for a couple of days in the skies of travel between the US and Australia. You’ve definitely given me something to ponder about and I’ll no doubt chew over it with Bill when I see him in a few days in India. AUM, Britta
Bon voyage, Britta! I’m sure you’ll have an incredible adventure in India along with chewing over bits of insights and naan. :o)
Reblogged this on Daily Muse and commented:
“When we have space to be that which we are already, we’re not only fine, we’re magnificent.” Give yourself the space to BE that magnificence.
Have just finished my 3rd coffee at the Hotel San Bieito after arriving in Santiago yesterday.
This one particularly struck a chord with me.
There are some great messages in Michaels reply to you!
Thanks for sharing.
Mate, I remember saying goodbye to you and Donna at that hotel on our tour. It was so sad, but you both looked so happy. It’s a wonderful hotel isn’t it!
