Insights, Wisdom And The Means To Know

And now, I must tell you something. I have been guided for sometime now that I must go and visit Melbourne, Australia. I've been guided that I'm needed there - and in the course of the teaching I've received over many, many years I do not question these things. I do not require that my teachers explain why and prove it to me. All I know is that I've been guided to visit Melbourne.

I don't know how I'm going to get there. I'm not sure how I'm going to pay to get back but I know that I will be going, I simply don't know when.

I feel it's important to share this with you because it is in the nature of mystical work and shamanic work that one is often guided by one's teacher without explanation.

How do I know that the guidance is correct? I know because of the trust that has built up between me and my teachers over many years.

Also I know because the energy that comes through in those moments of teaching is so clear, so benevolent and so loving. This is not something vague and indiscernible. This is something physical - I can feel it and especially when I feel it in the places that I have come to recognize as the places of wisdom, love and truth for me than I know it is so.

I'm sharing this with you because many of you are on your own personal mystical or shamanic pathways and you, if you have not already discovered those places for you and those energies that you recognize and love - you will in time. So - I'm sharing this with you today not only to inform you of the next place I am meant to visit but also to let you know how I know.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Dear Robert,
This post really make me think...Since last year I really feel attracted to Santa Fe, Taos and Sedona. Not as a tourist but for a longer period. And as you know I am I Tokyo, I spent 20 years here building a practice and I feel is it really a call to go there and start everything from zero...Or just an idea...
How do you decide in such a case?

I have been pondering that since last summer when I falled in love with the energy of New Mexico...But I don't know why Sedona also feels very attractive and Colorado (Boulder)too...

Any insights?

Patrice - again for this kind of personal advice, aside from what has already been shared on this blog which I'm sure you are well aware of and my other, I recommend that you contact Eileen Meyer ( for a more in depth exploration of what might be best for you in this circumstance.

Goodlife my friend.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for the advice.
My question may have looked personal but in fact it was more a question about process...

Is not empowering yourself about being able to work more and more closely with our own source of inspiration? And don't you think moments of hesitation may be chances to develop our own capacities...I presume it is why you write your books and spend time writing your blogs.To help people empower themselves.

So when I visit your blogs and write a question it is not to get my food cooked for me, it's more to get some hints about how to improve my cooking...Meaning yes there is a lot of literature about how to access intuition or higher self or source but I feel getting advices from you could help deepening or focusing (I also felt it could be of a general interest to know more from you about those questions of how to channel your truth in relation with the issue of a place you feel you should go).

That was just my point in those questions.

Goodlife and sorry if I did transgress the procedures of your blog.


Robert Shapiro said...

Patrice, of course I want to empower you and to reveal more and more about ways you yourself can accomplish things for yourself but my friend you must trust me a little bit perhaps.

Do you think I really have no knowledge whatsoever about you and your needs. Do you really feel that no one can help you. Surely you must think someone is helpful if you are reading these blogs.

I would never encourage you to consult anyone that I did not believe could help you to be empowered yourself, to instruct and guide you in ways that would assist you in developing yourself or to fob you off on someone else because of any reason.

I have given you this guidance to get a reading from Eileen Meyer because I believe in her capacity to provide insight, wisdom and yes - empowerment for you. She does this for others. Can you not trust me just a little bit here.


Patrice said...

Thanks Robert for taking time and patience to answer...I'll not resist more and follow your suggestion.

Thanks for the loving care.


Robert Shapiro said...

Patrice, you are most welcome my friend.

Hello Robert

I meet you briefly in Sedona about a decade ago and have your link on my site at

I wasn't at all surprised when I read that you've been drawn to Melbourne. I live in NSW and I too am currently in Melbourne for a short while. It's a spectacular place and I feel sure you'll have wonderful exchanges here. During the 80's and 90's I had a metaphysical shop called Spiral in Melbourne and the calibre of people in this place is quite, quite profound and the energy sublime.

I do hope you have a magical time and perhaps we'll even get to meet again.

with Love

That's a beautiful skill/knowledge to own. Self doubt can be crippling. How nice to fly without fear.
You know we all wish you the best. For some reason I also own no worries for you. In my eyes you are too wise to err.

Robert Shapiro said...

Seven, I do appreciate your kind words.

I must say though being a charter member of the human race, as we all are eh, that I do allow myself the privilege to err and I must say I have many times taken far too much advantage of that privilege :-)

Still, I am greatly complimented by your kind words.

Goodlife my friend.

Cedar, thank you for your comment. It is good to see that you have found a place to settle where the Earth feeds your roots and where your roots can move from place to place where you feel supported.

Who can say what will come in life. Perhaps we will meet here or there.
