OptiScal: A Measure of Receptivity
The Optimal Series
Written in late
2001, OptiScal A Measure of Receptivity was my first digital book. One of
several basic books I'd written after asking the question, “How do I do the
things I'd read about over the years I'd studied metaphysics and related
spiritual materials”, this work lets the reader apply Energy Work to daily
experience. As with my other books, OptiScal came in response to my questions
into the nature of Spirit and energy.
Measure of Receptivity is one of several books birthed from TRIBES Scouting
in the Promised Land whose primary message is “How I see myself determines
what I do” and my findings as I explored the concepts led to freedom from many
traditions of restrained powerlessness.
I used TRIBES
to shift attention from events and circumstances to energy as the power to
create experiences. Aware of that shift, I used OptiScal to show you, the reader
how I connected to that power and then moved forward. By delving into this book
and practicing the exercises, you will discover the energy in events and
circumstances, measure your ability to detect that energy and thereby enhance
your capacity to control it.
Just as we
found TRIBES, OptiScal A Measure of Receptivity is a timeless primer. The book
lets you play with energy, even encourages it. A book for the child, the child
in you, it moves you to a level of pure conscious power. Feel the thrill as you
exercise your vibrational muscles and then expand into areas both exciting and
entirely pleasant. Feel the joy and celebrate as you connect to the desires of
great issue in manifesting your desires and creating your own reality rests in
your ability to connect to the power that makes things happen. To know you are a
creator, a born authority is the first and premium piece in your move from the
illusion of a victim of circumstances to the reality of yourself as a power.
Setting aside the mixed messages of the eons, now you can take it on – your
power, that is, and do what brings you the experiences of the full and abundant
life that belonged to you from before time. OptiScal lets you make that
of what you are doing as plugging into electricity where you let the energy
flow. But know it is more – it is far more. You are plugged in to the whole of
Consciousness; and as one expression of consciousness, you are able to bring all
sorts of wonderful experiences out from your inner world into your visible
whole of Consciousness is all that is and all that would ever be. All is
Consciousness, including you, everyone and everything you know or would ever
know. It is more than you would ever know. All is Energy, and this includes you,
everyone and everything you know, all you could ever know and more than you
could ever know. Because you are consciousness, you are able to connect with or
plug into the whole of Consciousness. I found as I played around with the
concept of OptiScal that I found how much I was plugged in.
willing are you to have the experiences you say you want?
Let me ask again. Do you have what you asked for? Do you have it or are you
waiting for it to come? Or, did you ask for one thing but got something else?
Are you waiting for your desire to show up?
I said to you, “There is a connection between how receptive you are and what
you receive.” Think about this for a moment! The bottom line is this: you
receive what you are receptive to. You receive what you are willing to receive.
how receptive are you?
willing are you to receive the things and experiences you desire? It was after I
developed the OptiScal that I realized how my answer to this question affected
had seen the question in parts when I faced the need to give myself permission
for this or that, but to come face to face with how receptive I am – how
willing I am to have – that took it to another level. It helped to see one key
factor: if I asked for something but did not have it, I showed I was not
receptive to it.
you have any idea how receptive you are to the desires of your heart? So I ask,
“Do you know how receptive you are? Would you want to know how receptive you
are?” Would it mean something to you – to know how receptive you are to have
your desires fulfilled?
I ask, “How receptive are you to the best experiences?
receptive are you to your desires? How receptive are you to experiences you
requested?” To put it directly in your face tell me, had you requested an
experience and it did not come immediately? Did you have to wait for it? Did
someone try to appease you with the notion that it takes time? Or, did someone
say something like this: “It’ll come in its own good time.” Is this how
faced this response myself when things I asked for did not show up. Sometimes
not immediately! Sometimes not at all! The idea that it takes time did not make
me feel any better. Whether as a small child or an adult now with grandchildren
– I experienced frustration when the things I requested did not show up.
Whether I showed it in my actions or tone of voice or not, still I was not a
happy camper and if I led you to believe any other way, I am being untruthful.
one of those matters of traditional bondage – of making it an okay thing to
wait. No, as long as I expect electricity to flow and give light immediately I
expected to have immediate results when I asked for what I choose.
one of us knows innately that instant is the way manifestation is supposed to
be. Not because of the instant coffee generation. The instant coffee generation
evolved because instant manifestation is a feature of reality – it is a
feature that connects spiritual and physical reality.
experience my desires in any form other than instantly lets me know a problem
exists and the problem is with my receptivity. Back to electricity as a model,
how long do I expect it to take when I flip the switch? Just when do I expect
the light to come on?
it’s back to “How receptive I am to the desires I requested.” To ask for a
desire is the same as flipping the switch when I want to have light in a room.
With a clear connection – a free-flowing connection, I will get light when I
flip the switch. There’s no need for a great philosophical discussion about
it. With a clear, free-flowing connection, I have to experience my desire when I
ask for it – just as I do when I flip the light switch.
ask the question about manifestation for just one reason: to get clear about the
problem. When things I ask for do not show up, what’s going on? I have no
questions about experiences that show up as I asked for them.
it is my receptivity I have to consider that I am the one who keeps my desires
from me. So let me look at it closely. If my receptivity is amiss, I surely want
to get it into right order. That’s clear enough for me!
I want to know if what I think is willingness is not being willing. Before now,
it did not occur to me that I was not receptive to something I'd requested. I
thought and said all along, “I want to have this!” Surely that means I am
willing – or does it? Wouldn’t you think?
student of conscious creation – a student of the Mind, I had come face-to-face
many times with issues around being willing to receive. Issues about being
receptive arose before. Now, I ask, “Just how willing am I to receive?”
Somewhere along the way, I found I needed to give myself permission to have or
do certain things. My traditions had conditioned me to decline certain
experiences due to many factors. Think of it – all the “too …”
conditions – such as too young or too old, too tall or too short put limits on
what I could do and what I could have. My traditions trained me to be
non-receptive. They trained me into unwillingness to have certain things and
there were the socio-economic traditions and what side of the track – you know
the story. Diversity issues by gender or race or religion or bank account size
or neighborhood – a broad range of limitations prevailed. Unwilling! Not
receptive! Not willing to have because… and the list is expansive. These
played back from my traditions and will continue to prevail until I take them
on, one at a time. What could I do?
had to come to terms with the fact that I am the power and I know my power. I
had to look around and see where I had allowed others to be the power over me
and to take back my power. Quickly and without much ado, I found I could speak
firmly to my traditions, beliefs that held these traditions together to let them
know who I am. I am I! And I give myself permission to experience life. To
experience life to the fullest!
is clear to me where my power is and where we are all equal – in the only
place that counts: the tongue! Each of us, no matter who we are, has the power
of thought and speech. We have the power to move energy. Here, we can use our
power to take down those traditions that held us so securely within their grasp.
Yet I must permit myself to take this action so I can have my desires.
I can give the permission that lets me experience life in its fullness. A
conscious decision – a conscious choice – I must make a conscious decision.
This one move, to give myself permission to have certain experiences – takes
me a step closer to clearing my receptivity so I can have the desires of my
heart. I moved closer to being willing to have and experience my desires.
myself permission is my first step to receptivity. It is my first step to
receiving. To have my desires, I have to be willing to receive them. So what did
I do? I permitted myself to receive my desires. I gave myself permission! Yes, I
said I want this or that, but when what I said I wanted differed from what I
got, a problem has arisen in my receiving department. A student of the
Scriptures, I had to get clear with the words that say, “Ask and you shall
receive!” and with - “according to my faith it… is done.”
these passages told me that whatever I asked for was covered. So what happened
when I'd asked for one thing but received something different? Is my faith that
something going on in my receiving department?
my faith – the level of my faith spell out how receptive I am? Does it show my
willingness? Let’s see where we are on this. I am fully receptive when I'd
received what I'd asked for. My experience is as I desired it and it happened
immediately. I was partially receptive if I received one thing in the category
of my desire, but it was a bit different from what I had requested. If I asked
for a thousand dollars, but received $5.00 or $500 or $900, I was partially
receptive. Clearly this showed I was willing to receive part of what I
requested. For some reason, I did not permit myself to have the whole thing. My
energy was a match to only a part of what I requested.
if I asked for a thing or experience and nothing showed up, the evidence is
clear: I was not receptive. If I asked for $1,000 but received no money at all,
I did not have it because I was not willing to receive it. Or was it a matter of
time to take shape and get to me – or is it something I’ll need to wait for?
That I made a request that did not appear, it is clear. Something stood between
my request and me. My energy and my desire did not match.
receptivity thing includes business. An example is that of the occasional
customer who is expected to pay at or by an appointed time. He says, “The
check is in the mail…” and in spite of numerous calls, the money did not
why was I not receptive to receiving payment?” I asked. “Why was I unwilling
to get paid? That is indeed the strangest notion I've ever heard. How could this
be so? I am in business and part of being in business is getting paid!”
Getting paid for services provided!
I settled my willingness to get paid, there’s no need to be upset with the
customer! I needed to get busy to be sure I was receptive to the payment. I
needed to be willing to receive the payment.
conditioned me to get upset with the other person. After all, it was his
responsibility to pay! That alone fact misses the point that I had created my
experience. Where I followed tradition and put my attention on the customer, I
caused “blocking energy” to move about into my energy stream. It halted the
customer’s payment and kept it from showing up.
what is my responsibility?
am I supposed to do?
do I get my money?
my responsibility is to determine what I experienced. I have to make sure my
energy flows in the way that lets the experience I desired entered my stream. I
must make sure I did not block the experiences I chose.
have but one thing to do! I must get in there, give myself permission to receive
the payment and generate the energy – that is, shift my vibrational level so
it matches the energy of my desire for payment. This is simple! The challenge is
this: am I willing to do it? Am I willing to step into the energy I had
identified as matching my desire and live in that energy until my only thought
when it comes to getting paid is that I was paid? Am I willing to view a scene
in my inner world where I was paid and keep that scene at the front of my mind?
me be clear. If when I thought about my customer who owed money to me, my
thoughts determined what I experienced. If I thought or said, “She’s not
going to pay…” or “What a dead-beat!” – yes, I was reporting a
situation. That is how the situation was – based on my intellect and senses.
But to give the report stopped the flow and made it difficult for the customer
to pay. What could I do? What would I do? That depended on how I saw myself. Did
I see myself as a reporter or as a person who had commanded energy? Did I see
myself as a joyous commander?
I acted like it when I told about the situation, I am more than a mere reporter.
I am a commander. I command energy flow. Acting like a reporter does not change
the outcome. Energy flows in the way I direct it! Either free-flowing or
one who directs the flow of Energy, I constantly fill my energy stream with
thoughts I think and words I speak. In this instance, what I think and speak
about my customer is the energy I direct.
report as in my example here fills my energy stream with blocking energy –
energy that holds back my customer’s payment. I blocked the payment no matter
how much I wanted the customer to pay or how much effort the customer makes to
settle the deal. To change the energy of my words changes the content of my
energy stream. That means changing it to free-flowing energy.
energy does not match free-flowing energy – and it certainly does not match
“customer payment energy.” In my role as an energy mover, consciously aware
– to match “customer payment energy” I'd speak higher energy. I'd speak
the “customer pays” energy. When my energy matches the energy of my desire,
my desire manifests. My desire appears fully before me so I can experience it.
The time it takes to get to me is the time it takes me to match its energy.
had tried to appease me, telling me that the Universe takes its time to deliver
what I requested. Others said, ‘Good things come to those who wait.’ How do
these statements fit the idea of faith or willingness? How do they relate to my
being receptive? Think again about electricity.
statement puts the responsibility at some place and on someone other than with
me. In the customer paying matter, it placed blame on the customer. It said I
might have to put pressure on the customer to get him to pay. Laws in place
accommodate me in this matter. Going this route, I'd have to wait and in my
waiting, add more energy that blocks the flow of my customer’s energy. Any
statements about time or about waiting set me in conflict with spiritual and
vibrational law. Spiritual law is NOW! It is the present moment! All and any
statements about time add more energy blocks. Energy flowing now acts now. In
spiritual terms, statements like this refute the acknowledgement, “By your
faith, it is done…” If it happened according to my faith, then what did time
and waiting have to do with it? Faith is NOW! It is a NOW thing!
argue that it takes time for the Universe to arrange everything in order, so you
can experience it. Dear, dear friends! All that could ever appear already exists
and it exists in all varieties and arrangements. If any thing, the Universe is
waiting for you and me to designate the order we’d chosen to experience. I’d
spent time trying to figure out how my desires would get to me when I could have
easily invested that energy in being clear about the desires I chose. It was not
enough to say I wanted a new car. Any car I did not have right now was a new car
to me. Is this what I mean? Or did I choose that Jaguar?
what about the details?
I want the Universe to bring me just any Jag?
it clearly; the car I desire already exists! Even with the custom features I
really want. It does not have to be manufactured. Thousands, maybe hundreds of
thousands of cars are manufactured daily. Millions of cars are on car lots right
now – and many more are in show rooms. Whether I wanted one or a dozen, they
already existed and are waiting for their new owners to claim them.
Universe is waiting for me to be clear – like the clerk at the ice cream store
who takes my order – when I am not clear, he keeps going back to the barrels
to help me choose what I want. This goes on until I find what I wanted. I
described this and that, he let me scoop this and that, and we went back and
forth until I got clear about it!
I desired already exists. The persons who’d take the role as my friends exist
now. Customers, for whom I had designed, developed, manufactured and displayed
products and services are already here, waiting for me to show up. Each is
waiting, waiting for me to let them in. Each in their own energy streams waits
for a cue from my energy stream that grants them opportunity to enter my
experience. As long as my energy stream contains blocking energy, they cannot
another way to look at it. Consider how immediate air is to you. It always
flows. You let it in and then you exhale – unless an obstruction appears. When
an obstruction appears, even if it’s your own saliva in your breathing
passages, you'd take immediate action to clear the way for free-flowing air.
You'd put your attention on clearing the passage.
demand is so clear that you'd spend no time trying to figure out what is in
saliva or even how saliva got into the breathing canal. The most you may do
regarding the saliva – if someone asks is to mention something like “I
swallowed wrong!” Your attention is on clearing the passage so you can
breathe. It is the same with your desires. Whatever you may desire is as
immediately available to you as the air. The thing you have to do is breathe it
in. Let it in. If something blocks its flow to you, take immediate action to
clear the way for your desire to flow freely to you. Yes, even if your desire is
for money, cars, friends, or business activity, it is the same. All the
experiences you could ever desire are immediately available to you – as
immediate as the air. You just have to let it in.
hold of what I am saying here. Then enjoy your desires. Do what you have to do
to delight in the desires of your heart. Really, it is not so much a doing thing
as it is a being thing. But you’ll see what I mean later. Easily you and I
know air is energy. I feel its flow as I watch my breathing or when I listen to
the purrs of my kitten. But what about things, are they energy?
I clear on things as energy?
I see things as free-flowing energy that move just like air?
I told you that all things are formed of Energy and the atmosphere that makes
things appear is energy, would that help? Let’s think about the energy all
around me that forms my energy stream. The energy of my energy stream is formed
of my beliefs about myself. This is how I see myself.
swirls all around forming an energy vortex around me. It is constantly moving.
Swirling around each thing is its own energy stream. Its energy stream
constantly moves and swirls around it. My energy stream attracts matching energy
streams – that is, my energy stream with high energy attracts energy streams
that are also formed of high energy. My energy stream with low energy attracts
energy streams formed of low energy. My desires are formed of things I like,
that is, they are formed of high energy. My energy stream formed of high
energies is a magnet for my desires. My energy stream formed of low energies
repels my desires. Where I see myself through low energies is where I resist
having my desires manifested.
each thought I think and each word I speak, I unleash energy that establishes
the nature and quality of my energy stream. With blocking energy I set my energy
stream in motion to disconnect from other energy unlike itself. With
free-flowing energy I set my energy stream in motion to connect with other
energies, regardless of their nature. I set the energy a-swirling! Any built-up
blocking energy floating around in my energy stream remains there until I
neutralize it with free-flowing energy.
energy “puts” blocking energy “under arrest.” It offsets it and
neutralizes it so I could continue my focus on free-flowing energy. Free-flowing
energy absorbs the blocking energy into itself and changes its nature.
Neutralized and changed, the energy in my energy stream flows just like the air
to greet the energy of my desire. I inhale it! The idea of breathing it in is
not just a metaphor – it’s a real thing to do! To receive my desires is a
about it. I am energy. My energy stream is filled with free-flowing energy. My
desires are energy and the energy stream of my desires is filled with
free-flowing energy. My energy is constantly flowing freely and the energy of my
desires constantly flows freely. My free-flowing energy greets the free-flowing
energy of my desires and I inhale it all. I inhale the energy of my desires and
feel their energies flow all through my being. Free-flowing energies are higher
energies. Higher energy feels good – it feels very good. I enjoy my
experiences surrounded by higher energies.
thoughts and feelings are energy and the things and experiences I desire are
energy. Everything is energy and flows in its own energy. The energy of my
thoughts and feelings moves about in waves and by my focus, assembles itself
into patterns that become my experiences. Each thought and feeling moves about
freely because it is energy. The energy wraps itself around the energy of the
things and experiences I had chosen until it takes form in the vibration I had
think wealth, it comes to the front of my mind, and I react to it. Thinking
wealth, I unleashed the energy of wealth and caused it to move about in my inner
world until it surfaced as images I could see. I looked at the images of wealth
with my mind's eye and decided how I felt about it. I reacted to it and wrapped
the energy of my feeling around wealth. Liking wealth as part of my experience,
I stepped into the image and played it out in my mind. I did all sorts of things
with my wealth and with each scene I'd played out, I wrapped more energy around
wealth. I played out one scene over and over, making sure it was just as I'd
wanted it to be and with this, I caused it to become firm and solid – and I
was in the consciousness of fulfillment, where I was conscious of being wealthy.
In the consciousness of fulfillment, I had stepped into a very high vibration,
radiating at 600 MHz where the energy flowed to counterbalance 10 million
thoughts that opposed my wealth with each thought where I was conscious of being
wealthy. I was fully receptive to being wealthy.
beliefs, formed by thoughts and feelings assembled around central thoughts have
their own energies and their own vibrational rates. I form certain beliefs with
high vibrations and others with low energies. For the sake of convenience we can
call these high and low energies. I wrap the energy of my beliefs around things
and experiences, whether high or low vibrations. For experiences I enjoyed, I
formed beliefs of high vibrations. I delighted in these and invited them back.
These might be joy and warmth, enthusiasm or simple delight.
energies very easily show how I see myself and they show how I see things and
experiences that come my way. My energies color the things I see. High energies
color them lovely and low energies color them with offense. High energies turn
me on and low energies turn me off. It is the same with my desires.
beliefs about myself – that is, how I see myself – color my experiences with
everything in my life. This includes family, friends, cars, money and business
activity. High-energy beliefs allow these experiences to flow to me while low
energy beliefs turn them away. At first light, I enjoyed having money and cars
and friends. It is wonderful to have a thriving business. I predispose my
choices for my experiences with high energies. I draw these to me with
high-energy beliefs. So, what energies do I use to surround my experiences with
family, friends, cars, money, and business activity? With what energies did I
greet these experiences?
energies that surround these experiences register with me according to the
energies I send out to greet them. Where I released high energies, I connected.
However, where I unleashed low energies, I did not connect with my desires.
what is my situation? Do the energies I unleash match the energies of these
experiences as I choose to have them? What energies did I wrap around money?
Around cars, what energy did I wrap around them? What energy did I wrap around
my friends? What energy did I wrap around my business activities? Did I send out
free-flowing energy or is it blocking energy? Whatever I sent out matches
something. But did it match what I consciously chose to experience? That is the
be clear here! High energies attract high energies and low energies attract low
energies. High energies neutralize low energies and convert these to higher
energies and low energies block high energies and deny them entrance to your
energy stream. Every day and with every thought and word, I surround myself with
the energy of my beliefs. That’s just the way it is. But what kind of Energy
is this? To what extent does the energy match my desires? Is my energy the same
as that of my desire? If it is, I am receptive.
the energy of my beliefs differs from the energy of my desires, very clearly, I
am not receptive – I am not willing to receive my desires. The energy within
my energy stream is incompatible with the energy that forms my desires.
here we are. To let the desires in – and my desires must come in through my
energy stream – I must greet them with compatible energy. It is like welcoming
guests into my home. It is my pleasure to make sure my guests feel comfortable.
I therefore set the tone, create an atmosphere that best accommodates my guests.
I provide an atmosphere I know they enjoy. One in which they can relax in and
feel at ease. We call it making them feel at home. To admit any desire into my
experience, I must use compatible Energy. My energy must be compatible with
their energies. My Energy must make my desires feel at home. Any desires! All my
the thing I desire is something that feels good, it is formed of high energy. If
it brings out warmth and joy and is something I delight in – high energy, high
vibrations formed it. Very likely I would not desire something formed of the low
energy. It is my nature to desire what feels good, what I would delight in. To
match the energy of my desire, I generate and release high energy into my energy
stream and allow it to swirl in a vortex around me. My high energy receives and
welcomes my desires. This forms my willingness to have my desires with me!
Play with the energy – play with it every day and throughout the day. Feel it tingling in and through your being. Feel the energy around you – and feed it with more free-flowing energy – joy, celebration, appreciation and praise, Love Energy, warmth and beauty. Speak it and write it. Sing it and dance it. Play the highest forms of Energy that you know. And sing it again.
