TOOL TUESDAY: Shovel or Ladder
Today is Tool Tuesday! Shovel or ladder
Every Tuesday I share one of Eloheim and The Council’s tools for spiritual growth.
The choice for consciousness is challenging, but habitual response is a pit of pain.
You get a shovel or a ladder, it’s your choice to dig yourself in deeper or to climb up the ladder and out of the pit. The shovel is repeating habit, it’s you not being willing to say, “What the hell is going on here in me? Not with him, not with her, not with the boss, not with the kids, not with the bank, not with the credit card statement but within me. What is going on in me?”
“Am I going to dig myself in deeper out of fear, guilt, lack, victim hood, or am I going to put my hand on the ladder and say something has to change? And am I going to keep climbing the ladder even when my pit partners look at me and say, ‘What are you doing? Where are you going? Who do you think you are? You’re getting too big for your britches!’” and all those other lines that they might give you. The ladder isn’t just a hop. You’re so far down in these pits of habitual response that you need one of those tall ladders, but the beauty is your ladder is tall enough.
You figure it out by putting one foot in front of the other and continuing to make the choices that say, “Habit is not who I am.” Because when habit gets to tell you who you are, the scenery doesn’t change. Do you want a shovel or a ladder? We will not give you shovels. But we have loads of ladders of all different sizes, shapes, and lengths and we even know how to make them taller. So if you get dug down in there, don’t think you’re ever lost. You’re not ever lost in the pit of habit. You simply have to keep making the choice.
We’re standing there cheering you on. Just lift your foot. We know it’s challenging to break habits, but it will get easier. If you want your life to change, you need to choose and choose again to climb the ladder of consciousness.
When Eloheim first came up with this one, I was blown away. It is classic Eloheim, funny and practical. I picture them standing at the top of the hole saying, “We have ladders for you!” There is something so comforting about the image of them standing in the light looking at us down in the dark just waiting for us to reach up for the ladder they are lowering.
When dealing with a coworker who flips into hysteria/doom and gloom thinking when confronted with a problem, I find it helpful to use the Shovel (are you really sure you want to dig that great big huge hole for yourself?) / Ladder (don’t you think we might actually get a better overview of this problem from up here?) approach. I used to call this the “Take the noose off your neck and get down from that chair” maneuver. But I like shovel/ladder now because it actually offers an alternative way of thinking about the situation rather than just a plea for different behavior.

Conscious Awareness Creates Transformation! ~ 6-29-2011
The meeting of June 29, 2011 was one of those meetings where the entire Council builds on the same subject – To live as your truth, you must acknowledge your truth, and then use conscious awareness to create the transformation you seek. We had a great time and had a large group of folks join us online. More details below:
On 6-28-2011 I was interviewed on the Channels’ Channel radio show. This interview focused on how I became a channel, what it’s like to channel, and my insights on how it helps my spiritual journey. Eloheim has a great message about service mentality toward the end. You can listen by clicking on this link.
The Guardians: Have the intention for attention! What happens if the non-distracted truth of you is in this moment? The completeness of you includes your internal acknowledgment of shadow or shame. Let the truth of you be true.
The Visionaries: Conscious awareness creates transformation it cannot do anything but! Bring the truth of you to every moment. Described what living as Homo spiritus is like. YouTube video below.
Eloheim: Revisited the 10 things, Checking things off the list, Short factual statements, and Circle of possibilities tools and spoke about alternate expressions (past/future lives). They also reminded us that ascension includes ascending all lifetimes and that ascension doesn’t mean “up” but means that your soul comes in. Re-languaged the word abundance. If thinking could have solved it, it would have solved it long ago because you sure have thought about it enough!
The Girls: If something pops up in more than one area of your life, work on those first; they aren’t the hardest thing, they are the just the loudest!
Fred: One year anniversary! Fred spoke about the lament, “I want to go home!” Reminded us that home is within. “You come home to the interior truth and validity of you.”
The Warrior: Spoke about The Council’s tools. Asked us to make a list of our three favorite tools and bring (or email) the list to next week’s meeting. If you would like to learn about The Council’s tools, please refer to our books The Choice for Consciousness and The Homo Spiritus Sessions. They said that this information would give The Council the opportunity to evaluate how the tools are being used so that they can help us more effectively.
Matriarch: Was fascinated by The Warrior’s changed role on the Council and hoped we would all participate in the “home work” assignment.

Working For Money & How to Build Your Marriage ~ 4-27-2011
I will say it again, WOW!!
The meeting of April 27, 2011 was very unusual for me. It was powerful for many people, but I want to talk about how unusual it was for me.
First off the Guardians and the Visionaries spoke powerfully about the idea of “Where we put our expanded attention” which was introduced last week. Follow this link for more information. http://eloheim.com/5674/choosing-where-to-put-your-attention-4-20-2011/
Then Eloheim came in. I just watched Eloheim’s section and it seems light and fun like it typically is. However, that is not what I experienced channeling it. I felt things in my body I have never felt before. When Eloheim stopped the meeting to set the energy (just before the YouTube video starts), I had a very intense buzzing in my chest. They truly were setting and holding a very specific energy for the information they were going to bring in. They were VERY serious about this. I guess I am going to have to teach them how to make a serious face so everyone knows when they are being this serious!
The day after the meeting was extremely challenging for me. It took 36 hours to feel like myself again. That hasn’t happened in a long time.
Eloheim has asked me to hold off on making further comments about all of this as they want to address it in the next meeting.
Eloheim also talked about how to handle the low-vibrational thoughts we still experience and addressed instantaneous manifestation.
The Girls followed up on Eloheim’s discussion and talked about vibration and multi-tasking.
Fred spoke about the energies of Uranus.
The Warrior continued their story focusing on the energetic jumps we are experiencing and how we can lose ourselves in the rapidity of transformation.
The Matriarch closed the meeting by talking about the changes in our crown chakras.
This subtle shift of language facilitates a huge shift in perspective. Experiences are here to facilitate growth, expansion, and transformation. Nothing happens TO you, it all happens FOR you. You create your reality by choosing your reactions to your experiences.
Shift your perspective to WOW and then allow for your changed perspective to change your life.

A Crash Course In How to Love Yourself ~ 2-9-2011
First some announcements!
The book is coming along nicely. It has been to the editor and is now back with me. I am adding the copyright page, the acknowledgments, some background information about the Council, the ISBN, and a few other things. THEN IT WILL BE READY!!!
Once that is done, I will do the additional things that are required for me to sell it on Amazon as a Kindle book and on the other ebook platforms. Things like cover art, writing the blurb (back cover copy), and getting it converted to the correct format to be read on all sorts of different devices.
The meeting of February 9, 2011 included messages from each of The Council members. The highlights for me were Eloheim taking the What is True Now? to a new level, the Warrior making it home in time for the birth, and the Girls giving us a crash course in loving ourselves.
The Girls star in the YouTube video this week:
Audio from each of our five meetings held in February, 2011
Guardians: Opened the meeting with a request to open and clear.
Visionaries: Discussed out hold-out places of fear, and advised us on moving toward consciousness using our tools.
Eloheim: Talked about using the “I’m tempted” tool and “What is true now?” to help us change our neural pathways from fear to consciousness.
The Girls: Gave us a crash course on loving ourselves.
Warrior: Continued his story of Marianna giving birth, including the panic he feels and how he deals with it.
Fred: Checked in on our crown chakra connection to our souls’ perspectives.
Matriarch: Closed with a message of love, and suggested we take the time to notice our crown chakra connection.

Fear-Based and Consciousness-Based Operating Systems ~ 1-12-2011
Well, January 12, 2011 is a meeting we won’t soon forget! The night before, Eloheim kept me awake for over an hour telling me all about the meeting and making sure I knew just what was needed for the presentation they had planned.
This was the first time in over 8 years of weekly meetings that we didn’t sit in a circle. Everyone sat in two half-circle rows so that they could all see what Eloheim was writing.
Eloheim proceeded to outline the transition from the fear-based operating system to the consciousness-based operating system. I have included a portion of their talk in the video below.
It was very different to channel Eloheim in this ‘mode’. Typically Eloheim reads the energy of the room. This time, since they were summarizing their teachings they didn’t access the energy of the room. To me, it constantly felt like I was trying to remember something and couldn’t…for 85 minutes.
Added to the challenge was that Eloheim can get distracted by ANYTHING! Imagine keeping them on track when they were sitting in a new chair and writing on a white erase board! This just might have been the first time they ever really wrote. They did draw a picture for us once before, but an entire night of spelling and spatial orientation and all that…..never before.
I’m right here doing a compare U2U and I’m just going to say it, this would have been impossible not that long ago.
Making something hard look easy once again.
The whiteboard meeting! Eloheim planned a special presentation for the meeting. The other Council members did not interact verbally in this meeting. Eloheim used a whiteboard to outline the transition from the fear-based operating system to the consciousness-based operating system, and explaining the tools we use to make our transition while creating the presentation.

A New Way of Dealing With Triggers ~ 10-13-10
The meeting of October 13, 2010 was very interesting. The Visionaries continued the discussion of a new relationship to triggers. I have included their comments in the video below.
Eloheim went on to share a new way of looking at the moment.
There is a very thin walkway between fantasy and over thinking. Neither one of those states is going to give you a connection to the moment. There is something that makes the moment uncomfortable or you would be in the moment.
The Warrior continued their story.Cedrick leaves the castle with the Warrior’s men!
We keep a keen eye on the aspects of ourselves that need transformation.
October Q&A ~ 10-10-10 ~ A new tool and MORE!
We had a wonderful event on 10-10-10. It started off with a potluck which always delights Eloheim.
The meeting began with an introduction by The Visionaries. Eloheim answered questions and ended the meeting by introducing a new tool: The Strongest Chakra.
I have received multiple emails about this new tool and how powerfully it is already working in people’s lives. It sure is helping me!
This week’s video is a review of the tool: Short Factual Statements. Eloheim feels this is the most powerful tool they have given us recently and this is a great review of how it works.
The list of questions answers during the meeting is below

ELOHEIM: You are an Actor in MY Play ~ Script Holding ~ 6-16-10
It is a busy time around here. Round 2 of the Next Top Spiritual Author contest ends on June 28th. That also marks the last day of public voting. The remaining rounds will be decided by the expert panel. Please, if you like our proposal, take a moment to cast your vote for us. If you know anyone who would be interested in this material, feel free to pass it along. Our page is located at: http://www.nexttopauthor.com/profile.cfm?aid=1933
Here is a link to some local press about our entry in the Next Top Spiritual Author contest
I filmed myself out and about promoting my entry in the contest. I had some fascinating experiences!
My latest cartoon!
The meeting of the 16th included discussion and examples of using the Short Factual Statements tool. SFS is proving to be a powerful tool! The YouTube video focuses on another tool, Script Holding. It has been some time since Eloheim reviewed Script Holding. I like the way they tied it into Short Factual Statements.
6-16-10 ~ 85 minutes
Eloheim: An intense review of the usage of short, factual statements, using examples from members of the group covering guilt, boundaries, and jealousy.
Also an overview and discussion of script-holding and grace, ease, and bliss/serenity.
Visionaries: Allow the truth of the short, factual statement to settle into your body rather than just spend a bunch of time spinning in your head. It s a real thing you re doing and you re really creating from that position. The tool may feel intellectual at the start, but getting to the real you in it is important. You are creating consciousness in your life by looking at things consciously.
The Girls: Creating consciousness requires you to experience yourself in a new way; part of experiencing yourself in a new way is being disciplined about how you allow yourself to critique yourself during the use of these new tools. Do not be mean to yourself
Warrior: As you walk along a new path [use a new tool], you start out a bit wobbly. Do not fear, because the more you walk the path the more stable you become on your legs with it.

ELOHEIM – Why are you SKIPPING this Moment? 6-2-10
Wow, there is a lot going on. Today, I have the summary of the 6-2-10 meeting, a new cartoon, and updates about the Next Top Spiritual Author contest. Let’s do them in reverse order!
The Next Top Spiritual Author contest — Round 2.
Round one of the contest saw 2800 entries reduced to 271. We must be in the top 25 to advance to round 3 at the end of June. There were only supposed to be 250 authors advancing to round 2, but the bottom 25 authors HAD THE SAME NUMBER OF VOTES! I guess what they say is true, every vote does count.
We spent the last few weeks preparing our round 2 entry and voting for round 2 is now live! You can read our book proposal and the first chapter of our book, The Choice for Consciousness, Tools for Personal Transformation, at this link: http://www.nexttopauthor.com/profile.cfm?aid=1933. If you scroll to the bottom of that page, you can now leave a comment about the book and/or your experience of Eloheim.
I LOVE making these cartoons.
QUOTES FROM ELOHEIM:
What is it about this moment that I am afraid of, that I don’t think is valuable, that I have made assumptions about, that I am habitual about?
There’s no such thing as — that other moment over there is more valuable than this one!
You wake up in the morning and you start skipping and we want you to know why.
You are purifying your experience of the moment in order to have the moment BE your experience.
6-2-10 ~ 83 minutes
Eloheim, Visionaries, Girls: Insight is only found in the moment. When you skip over experiences and feelings, you skip the moment. Questions you can ask yourself are: “What am I skipping?” “What do I want to skip?” “What do I wish I could skip?”
Wring every bit of experience out of every moment.
Say “Yes” to your creations.
“ ‘Yes’ is the way to ‘Wow.’ ”
“I’m on the Yes bus.”
Warrior: Facing the truth of self will set you free.
Matriarch: Setting boundaries is part of saying “yes” to your creations.

ELOHEIM: A Portal to a New YOU 5-26-10
I am almost up to date with the newsletters!
Last week was a very powerful session. Eloheim perceived a new ‘portal’ and passed the baton over to the Visionaries to explain it. The Visionaries explained it all in CLASSIC Visionaries fashion (which means that I barely get to breathe as they say so many words in such a short time.) I included their entire section in the video clip. Here are some quotes from the Visionaries:
You have a different opportunity of experiencing you now.
You have desired this opportunity and it has arrived.
The moment is the only place I want to live. I experience myself completely only as I experience myself experience the moment.
Addiction to the past and the future is a bad habit that you are ready to set aside. It is a play thing of children. It is not for the adults on the spiritual journey. The past and the future really are empty calories. It is not the place where you can actually experience yourself.
The remainder of the meeting has the entire Council speaking about this portal. I have included a bit of Eloheim’s contribution in the video as well.
Whatever it is, YES.
5-26-10 ~ 87 minutes
Eloheim, Visionaries: A portal has opened to the version of you that has made peace with the truth. The time has come when you can be the person who lives in the human form and doesn’t hide from the truth of you.
Say “Yes” to now so you can move forward without being in denial of the reality that you are experiencing.
Girls: It will be very challenging for you to love your complete self if you can’t love the parts of you that you don’t like.
Warrior: Allow the illumination of your soul’s insight to light up the dark places within you. When the dark places are illuminated, look and see what you find.
Matriarch: Call on members of the Council for assistance, and allow them to participate in the journey with you.
