The Great Mystical Back Come-Back.

How’s your back?

Do you have back problems?

Chances are, it’s your invisible chakras..

As for me.

A Lumbar Canal Stenosis.

My two invisible lower Chakras coincide with my physical spine.

Chakras?

A coincidence?

Is this a wake-up call to know more about the invisible relation with the physical body?

To understand the unknown effects of evolution on our back illnesses?

And more?

We need to deal with how evolution has screwed with us and what we need o know that we haven’t been told about.

Why we have back problems.

It’s evolution.

.How?

It’s hidden knowledge.

Invisible,

When we first came down from the trees we started walking upright.

It saved energy.

Everything was suddenly easier.

Huge energy saver.

But our bodies didn’t adapt soon enough to deal with this massive change.

Here’s the crunch.

They still haven’t.

Why are we all walking upright now?

Seven million years after we came down from the trees and started walking upright?

Recent studies have also suggested that, rather than taking millions of years to evolve from a hunched position as is commonly believed, our early ancestors were already capable of standing and walking upright the moment they descended from the trees.” (Live Science)

Instantly.

So have we all been walking upright prematurely?

To save energy.

Not so much as an evolutionary advance at all.

Is this the only reason, then, we are not all falling over in the street and returning to the trees?

Just so we can save energy?

But now we have supermarkets to save us energy.

So are we walking, and running, and jumping, ahead of time?

Seven million years ahead?

I know.

I have a spinal stenosis.

Messages don’t get through from my brain to my legs telling them how to walk.

After assuming that walking doesn’t come easy because, in spite of having excellent leg strength, I keep falling over, what’s happening?

Why can’t I walk?

Why must I focus on the placement of every step, one at a time, when I see others walking with ease without falling over?

I’m wondering whether it has anything to do with the evolution of humans coming out of the trees and walking upright?

Seems like, in evolutionary terms, it was instant.

Why?

Survival it seems.

To save energy.

Not any physical modification of the human/ape body to meet an evolutionary advance?

So are we stuck with a creature who has made a very physical move before its time?.

Is our body still meant to swing from the trees?

Have we beat the gun and advanced, in evolution terms, before we’re ready?

Is that why our bodies are so screwed?

So many of us with back and spinal problems?

And what physical modification has occurred in those intervening 7 million years since we came down out of the trees?

The placement of the scull on the top of the spine to cope with the upright stature.

Otherwise, I can’t find anything major.

So my immediate thoughts are

Is ageing caused by evolution?

Our lack of understanding of the chakras?

More about the cakras to come.

It’s important hidden knowledge we all should know.

Love and peace.

The Old Caravan In The Bush.

That was my home for 5 years.

The blue tarp was to stop the roof from leaking.

A metaphor for my life.

Like a reset.

The old caravan was like a womb and the Wombat Forest was the rest of the world.

What if I could start again.

The typical Mid-Life Crisis.

Is this the chance we all have to reset, to start again?

In the midst of what we already have?

We’ve tested the waters of our chosen career.

Maybe we’ve proved we can do it.

Or not.

Our soul is crying out to be heard.

What are we here for?

What is our true destiny?

Do you have a destiny wanting to speak?

Your caravan in the bush?

I had no choice.

My one-man freelance business went bankrupt.

I lost everything.

I had no choice but to start again.

I had to let go.

There’s a wisdom saying, Buddhist I think . . .

What you let go of, which is truly yours, shall be returned to you tenfold.

It was true for me.

I had to let go.

The Universe is there to support you.

It did me.

May the Force be with you.

I had untold adventures.

Other countries to visit.

Books to write.

Of my stories.

They’re all here.

Your destiny awaits.

Your story.

Waiting to be told.

You’ll need to have it first.

Starting from where you are,

Start and everything else will follow.

It’s my secret.

Love and peace.

Neil the Smith

Your Mind is Your Guardian Angel.

Listen to it.

Your mind knows all.

It’s that still small voice in your head.

Because your mind is the link between you and your soul.

Your mind is your soul guiding you.

Not your physical brain.

Your mind.

It can’t be measured, weighed, seen, evaluated or removed.

It’s what leaves us at the time our physical body gives up the ghost and ceases to be a living creature.

It’s our mind that our body “gives up”.

It’s the secret of eternal life.

Of reincarnation.

Of eternal youth.

So listen to your mind.

Follow its guidance.

It’s your guardian.

Don’t believe me?

Start listening and testing its advice and you’ll become hooked.

You don’t need to change anything or do anything or spend anything.

Just be still and listen.

Love and peace.

Namaste.

What Can We Do, You & Me, About the World?

What can one person do, alone, to change the world?

Even just a little bit.

I hear people saying just this.

What can we do?

What can I do?

I’m just one person.

I’m nobody.

What can I do?

Well, I’ve thought that too.

Until I wrote this small book

. It’s about what I can do.

Which is nothing.

Nothing compared to people who are famous, are influencers, are in a position to make a difference.

But then, I’ve written a book.

It’s all I can do.

But here’s the thing.

I know what we can do, as individuals, as ordinary people, without a voice.

Except our own.

So I want to invite you to read the book.

I have found the way that ordinary, everyday people like you and me can do something.

You can without making a fuss.

Unseen.

Alone.

Quietly.

Ethically.

Peacefully.

Without going anywhere.

Just where you are.

Here’s the link to my book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World’.

Doesn’t cost much.

Won’t bore you.

Easy to read.

Get it and together we can change the world.

Let’s give it a shot.

It may be now or never.

Love and peace.

How to Make Good Stuff Happen.

Think about it

That’s the eternal secret of making stuff happen.

It’s the eternal secret of health.

Thought.

That’s it.

What you think is what you get.

Thoughts in, reality out.

Your thoughts create your reality.

It’s the hidden secret of the word ‘abracadabra’.

The magic wand of life.

I’ve written a small but powerful book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World.’

About how your thoughts are creating your reality.

And more.

Look for the secret message at the front that’s the abracadabra moment for everything.

Every day, every minute, we’re being hit with thoughts that are not real.

But that’s what is creating our reality.

Drama.

Conflict.

Bullying.

People being unkind to people.

That’s what is creating your reality.

You can change that now.

Watch what you think.

Don’t watch the evening news.

Because it’s creating your reality.

What you think is what you get.

Think big but think nice.

You could change the world.

Love and peace.

Do You Hate Your Job?

Are you one of the 85% of people in the world who don’t like their job?

Is this mind-blowing figure such a surprise?

Because in a study by respected Gallop worldwide, most of us don’t care much for our jobs.

Is this why most of us don’t care much for our world today?

Shocking?

And what does anyone care.

More to the point, what are we going to do about it?

Fix the world or change the function of our jobs?

What about both.

Buy my new book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World’.

If 85% of us hate our jobs then what hope has the world got to be loved by the world?

Not much.

What to do?

In an article titled ‘Why 85% of People Hate Their Jobs’ a worldwide Gallop Poll of 160 countries showed that 85% of people are unhappy in their jobs.

The author of this Gallop study, titled ‘The World’s Broken Workplace’, is Jim Clifton, Chairman and CEO of Gallop.

If you don’t like your job you are not alone.

So why do they persist in telling us that we all need one of these jobs that most of us don’t like.

Isn’t it creating a world of negative thought?

A world disinterested in what we do with our main purpose in life?

An attidude of regarding our workplace as a negative experience.

We can do better.

That is, if we are to change the world.

To make this a better world.

To improve our lives.

Instead of making our lives unpleasant in our daily experience.

Love and peace.

Are Our Kids Being Brainwashed?

Brainwashing techniques have been documented as far back as the Egyptian Book of the Dead and used by abusive spouses and parents, self-proclaimed psychics, cult leaders, secret societies, revolutionaries, and dictators to bring others under their thumbs and manipulate them seemingly willingly.” (wikihow)

I hear stories of teenagers being kicked out of home, sent to mental institutions and made homeless living on the streets.

And I have to wonder, is it because of their chosen behaviour which doesn’t meet the rules of the parents, or behaviour caused by brainwashing, that is, repeated abusive and negative expectations of parents or partners?

And why do I keep hearing, oh that’s teenagers for you, tut, tut?

Is so-called typical teenage behaviour largely the product of constant psychological verbal abuse?

So how much are drugs, depression and suicides caused by the same constant verbal abuse?

It’s a tragedy.

I’m appalled.

Wake up to the damage you’re doing to our kids.

This is not discipline, it’s mentally damaging and life changing.

Life destroying.

Unfairly judgemental.

These are young souls, maybe old souls, who are coming to terms with their own destiny, which lies before them.

Let them be free to explore their own destinies.

Not yours.

The world is changing fast.

They deserve to have a chance to face the new world in their own ways.

Instead of yours.

Please, let’s save our kids, our vulnerable teenagers, from long-term psychological damage.

We need to honour and respect these new souls.

Our children will inherit the Earth.

Love and peace.

Introducing the Abracadabra Moment.

You can do magic.

Just by using words.

Is this what the word ‘abracadabra’ really means.

That every day, in every moment, we’re doing our own magic with our words.

Preposterous?

I believe it’s a hidden meaning of the famous words.

In any language.

Our words create thoughts.

Thoughts have power.

Just by speaking them.

I call it the ‘Abracadabra Moment’.

We do it all the time.

Usually without thinking we’re thinking it.

It’s the secret of abracadabra.

It’s the principle of the Law of Attraction.

Say the words we wish to attract often – and words we don’t even think to attract – and that’s what we attract.

To give you an example, in every moment of our waking lives the media is bombarding us with words.

It’s those words – and all the others – that create an ‘abracadabra moment’ every day of our waking lives.

But we don’t realise it.

Even our critical words directed at our kids are creating their reality.

Even though it’s not our intention.

Sad.

Because those words all create reality.

Our own and that of our innocent kids.

Think about it.

Here are positive messages we can use to create wonderful ‘abracadabra moments’.

For ourselves and our kids.

Think about it.

Love and peace.

What If Wishes Came True.

When we were still hunters back in the days of the cave man we expected danger.

So we were alert to danger all the time.

Danger was our expectation.

But now, we no longer live in a dangerous jungle.

Or do we?

What if today is the ‘new jungle’?

The ‘concrete jungle’.

The corporate jungle?

The technology jungle?

And it’s Darwin’s survival of the fittest?

We act and make decisions based on survival.

Our own everyday survival.

In a jungle.

Whatever kind of jungle we like to call it.

But what if we were to remove the jungle?

In our minds.

Because that’s what it is.

The jungle of our imagination.

What if we don’t participate in this jungle mentality.

Think differently.

What if we don’t think – and act – as if we are about to be attacked by a lion.

We do have that choice.

It’s only the information around us that says otherwise.

Even if our data gets compromised.

Even if the company we’re subscribed to gets hacked.

We have the choice not to participate.

It’s what the stories keep telling us.

What we wish for might come true.

Both the good and the bad.

And we can choose what we wish for.

Urban Nomad. Who is the Smith?

I am the Smith.

I am the author.

Why ‘the Smith’?

The smiths were the crafters, the metal smiths, the blacksmiths, the makers of Medieval Britain a thousand years ago.

I am the wordsmith.

I’ve written and self-published 8 autobiographical books.

Click or tap the image above to see.

This smith has lived everywhere.

Over 50 dwellings have been my home.

An ancient aboriginal corroboree ground in a wilderness area known as Fairy Hills where the creek met the river was my first memory of life.

And only a few kilometres from the Melbourne CBD.

I’ve just learned they’ve been digging up ancient aboriginal artifacts that suggest this.

I’ve lived with psychics and healers.

And sat with mediums or channels.

I’ve lived with a Reiki Master in New York.

With a Roman Catholic nurse in the north of Italy.

With a Buddhist in the UK.

My lawyer was an Atheist.

I didn’t live with him.

I ran my own freelance copywriting business. in the ’70s

In 1972 I won an award for the best television campaign of the year for a brand of meat pies and donuts.

I was a New Age hippie.

We knew about climate change 50 years ago.

A group of us started a commune on 40 acres north of Melbourne to become self-sufficient and live off the grid.

A year later we’d failed.

I helped launch Animal Liberation here.

Our patron was Peter Singer, who was then Professor of Bioethics at Harvard., and wrote the book ‘Animal Liberation’.

45 years later it’s still active today.

I was the first member of the Permaculture Association.

Which, started by two Tasmanian academics in the late ’70s, today is changing the world

Now there are over one million people certified in Permaculture in over 140 countries with more than 4,000 projects on the ground.

I went bankrupt.

An article I researched and wrote 35 years ago – about the Swiss and Italian gold miners who came to Australia in the 1850s – triggered the launch of a Swiss-Italian Festa which is still running every year today in a local spa resort town.

Their story is in my book here.

I ran a social group called ‘The Springs Whole Health Group’.

We never ran out of guest speakers on healing topics, from ley lines to chemical sensitivity, who I’d enjoy interviewing every month before our next meeting.

Then I would write an article for the local paper which they always published on page 3 or 5.

This while living frugally in an old caravan parked at the end of a street in the spa resort town.

Over 5 years I became known as the man in the van.

I studied many spiritual philosophies.

I studied Religious Experience as an off campus mature age student at Uni –

The Christian Mystics

The Hindu Bhagavad-Gita.

Australian Aboriginal Dreaning.

I practiced Yoga for 50 years from wherever I called home.

Briefly I joined the Theosophical Society in Melbourne, with headquarters in Adyar, India, with the motto ‘There is no religion higher than Truth’.

I met and befriended the Librarian of the Melbourne branch, a Wise Woman, who taught me how and where and why to search for Truth.

What is Truth?

For a time I was married and today have the pleasure of a beautiful family of 2 lovely daughters, 3 adorable granddaughters and 2 mischievous great grandsons.

I’m truly blessed

What Happens When You Die?

A long time ago, far far away, I had a chance meeting with a Wise Woman.

She became a good friend.

Until she died of cancer a few years later.

She was the Librarian at the Melbourne Theosophical Society.

Their Headquarters is in Adyar, India.

With a motto of ‘There is no religion higher than truth’ they encourage the study of all religions.

I was in.

I threw myself into my own study of all spiritual philosophies.

Including what happens when we die.

Today I feel that our soul survives this lifetime.

And is reborn.

Lately I’ve been thinking:

Do I really want to leave this beautiful world?

With all its problems?

What if my next life is on an alien planet with no trees or birds or the smell of cut grass?

What if it’s all black-and-white without colour?

Or what if it’s a world of thought without physical form?

This is not such a bad place to live if only we could clean up the mess.

The poverty.

The destruction.

So let’s do it.

All of us who care.

You and me.

We already live in a world of thought.

Our thoughts need physical bodies to work though.

How can we clean up our beautiful planet alone?

Others are trying.

But how can we do it alone.

I know the answer:

With our thoughts.

Trouble is, isn’t it our thoughts that have created and maintained today’s messed up world.

From the pollution to the violence.

Physically others are doing all they can.

Then there’s our thoughts.

It’s your thoughts, together with mine and others, that could do the trick.

With our thought we can be there, everywhere, in a thought.

We can avoid the cruel television dramas.

The violent movies.

The computer war games.

The selective brain washing evening news.

We can replace that with our thoughts of the world we want, not the world that amuses us.

“With our thoughts we make the world,” the Buddha said.

Is it our only hope to create the world we want.

Think big but let’s think change.

Think about it.

Love and peace.

My Secret To Staying Young For Zero cost.

When I was 24 I started yoga.

This is not a post about yoga but it’s where I started to stay young.

Because they say we all start to grow old around 30.

There’s another fact we all need to know about staying young.

Most cells in our body, around 98%, are replaced every year.

Every year.

Which means we get a new body, almost, every year.

What if we could have a say in making the new cells better than the old cells.

That we could be sure we get a better body for the old one.

Every year.

Buy my new small book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World’ (104 pages)

I believe the theory that our thoughts can influence the cells in our body.

And that with the nature of our thoughts we can have, in effect, new bodies for old.

Which may have been what I was thinking from the age of 24.

(At the time that was not my intention).

But hey, what if yoga and the natural scientific processes of growing older, have been working to help me stay young.

Except for the price of 10 yoga classes, I’ve simply been using the natural forces of nature.

Which cost me nothing.

I’ve used other strategies throughout my life.

I’ll tell you about them in future posts.

So here’s my biggest tip for this time.

Stop telling yourself you’re getting old.

Or looking old.

Or getting wrinkles.

Keep telling yourself, and thinking, I’m young.

Or I look good.

There’s an untapped power in thought.

And it costs nothing.

Love and Peace.

Change Your Thoughts, Change The World.

The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it can’t be changed without changing our thinking.  — Albert Einstein 

The world is created by our thoughts.

So your brain waves are creating the world we’ve got.

“We but mirror the world,” said Mahatma Gandhi.

Your brain waves can be changed.

You can change any situation by your response to it.

In a stressful situation, for example, your response can determine its outcome.

Every action is preceded by a thought and an emotion.

Start with your perception if you plan to rewire it.

So what are you thinking?

Because that’s where we can change the world.

As a force for good.

Consciously.

Let’s consider how this works in the real world.

In your world.

What are you thinking about while watching television?

Playing video games?

Watching the news?

Listening to the radio?

Responding to social media?

Chatting?

Do you know what you’re thinking?

Are you aware of your responses, your emotions, your feelings?

Do you become emotionally involved?

Could your responses be creating the world you don’t want?

“Every thought and emotion has its own vibrational frequency or wave frequency. Quantum mechanics has demonstrated how a wave frequency can be altered. The shape of a wave has peaks and valleys. Energy waves are encoders and carriers of information with an infinite capacity for storage. When you overlay an opposite shaped wave on to an original wave, the original wave is straightened. Essentially you cancel out the characteristics of the original wave by overlaying a new exact opposite set of peaks and valleys on top of it. You change the vibrational frequency.” The Quantum Mechanics Of Changing Thoughts.

When you change your response, you change your experience of the situation.

This single factor has the potential to dramatically alter the course of your life journey. 

As a thought form with other like minds, we could rewire the world.

As a force for good.

Think about it.

Love and Peace.

Changing The World & Laws Of The Universe.

There are the Laws of Physics and the Laws of the Universe.

I can’t prove the Laws of the Universe but I know they exist.

For me it’s a matter of Trust.

If it was religion it would be called faith.

For me, through experience and an inner knowing, it’s Trust.

I think the Laws we live by, that the entire Universe lives by, were created at the time of Creation.

It’s a part of the Creation that’s not visible.

For example.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion says that for every action in one direction there’s another equal and opposite reaction in the opposite direction.

In many religions that Law of Physics is called Karma.

We reap what we sow.

Not judgemental.

Doesn’t discriminate.

But I think the Universal Law goes even further.

I’ve observed it in my own life experiences over the past 50 years.

I can’t deny it.

For every action in one direction in harmony with the Universe the Universe has your back and will support you.

I’ve experienced it many, many times.

For me it’s Truth.

Truth is the language of the Universe.

We might say, it’s Universal.

Then we might say, for every thought in one direction the Universe will have your back and will support you.

How do I know?

You’ll have to Trust me.

I just know it’s Truth.

And it’s taking Newton’s Law of Physics into the realm of Universal Law.

Which can’t be proven.

What if thought, then, can change the world.

Because the Universe will have your back and support you.

And because the entire Universe, including Planet Earth, is based on its own Universal Laws.

Trust me.

Love and Peace.

Neil Smith.
