Having big goals, big dreams

by Jon Rappoport

September 13, 2018

In my private consulting work, and in my 3 Matrix collections, the importance of big goals and big dreams comes to the foreground. This is the main event. This is where electricity occurs. This is where old habits are swept off the board and new plans take their place. This is where previously unseen energies emerge and a person feels a new deep sensation: power.

Focusing on achieving a goal you don’t really care about is deadening, to say the least.

Every individual is “built” for achieving big personal dreams/desires. This is where magic can happen, in the form, for example, of synchronous events that spontaneously come together and fortify each other.

In working with clients, I’ve learned the importance of doing what’s necessary at the right time. Sometimes it’s all about unearthing those big desires and dreams; and then there are periods when the strategy of how to bring a dream to fruition is paramount.

In the end, what transforms a life is pursuing, with great intensity, a major dream. Then, EVERYTHING moves up on to another level of experience. Then, a person knows what it means to be alive.

My consulting practice: the creative life and the spiritual life

by Jon Rappoport

“With sufficient courage and commitment, anything is possible. Without them, the great dreams fizzle out…” (The Magician Awakes, Jon Rappoport)

Here is a former client, artist Rick Dubov, writing about our consulting work:

“Jon opened up a new world of possibilities for me via imagination work we did together. What seems impossible starts to become possible. Above all what Jon opened up in me is that imagination opens up worlds that never before existed. I did several sessions of theatre of magic with Jon, and out of our back-and-forth emerged a thing I called the Gold Conveyance, a massive living thing spanning the gulf between all manner of things [and connecting them to each other when previously they seemed isolated]…Jon’s work in the realm of imagination has been a profound influence on my life. I truly cannot recommend him highly enough. Thanks for everything Jon!”

Over the years, time and time again, my clients have proved to me that when they have a better and deeper sense of what is creative, their actions in life trend to be more fruitful and fulfilling. And their unique sense of the spiritual essence of living grows as well.

The creative and the spiritual are of the same space and the same energy, when they derive from a person’s authentic experience. Together, they provide a basis for deep fulfillment.

After working for a time with artist and client Rick Dubov, I wrote the following note: “Rick is reframing his personal reality, in a far larger sphere—which takes nothing away from the reality he already has, but adds huge amounts of space and meaning. He is doing this in a quite overt creative way—and at the same time, this is giving him a new spiritual outlook on his experience. He sees super-abundance everywhere. He is staging an internal revolution. His spirit is becoming what it always was—immortal…”

My personal consulting services—power

by Jon Rappoport
qjrconsulting [at] gmail.com

With private clients, I’m operating at the core of my work, which has to do with THE INDIVIDUAL MAKING MAJOR SHIFTS IN HIS APPROACH TO REALITY.

I mean major shifts in the direction of experiencing his own power.

There is no freedom without power, and that is a tough lesson for many people to learn. They believe having power is somehow wrong. They completely misunderstand its role—and part of correcting their misconception comes by practicing techniques that feed power to them, so they can feel it and know it and see it first-hand.

During 20-plus years of working with clients, I’ve also learned that building one system to fit everyone falls short, very short. An essential part of what I do involves reacting spontaneously to each client. In many cases, this is how a technique surfaces. It appears, much like the next brush stroke in a painting, and I see a useful exercise I can give the person.

An individual is a power manufacturing center, and if half the plant is shut down and in disarray, and if most of the workers are lounging around outside, and if there is no direction, and if the engines are in need of immediate repair—then there is work to be done. Major work.

In many instances, the individual has let things slide as far as he has by building an ironclad case proving that failure is inevitable and cannot be avoided. He is probably unaware he has done this.

Well, it turns out that by practicing various power exercises, this “knot” can come undone, and he can advance. He can find a new world, like an ancient explorer.

Here is an excerpt from my ongoing work-in-progress, The Magician Awakes:

“Power is at the heart of this world, not because the world is evil but because marshaling energy to make a better reality takes power. What I’m talking about here is unlimited in terms of space and time. This is not some little parochial dark power a fool uses to provoke fear. This is not a pond. This is the ocean. This is the big one. This is what is at the core of the individual. It is not neutral, it is not empty, it is not a system, it is not technical. It electric and alive. To put it another way, it is what you find inside the nut when you crack open the shell. You find the kernel. It says, ‘When you tap me, I give you energy, as much as you want.’ However, for this to happen, the decks need to be cleared of certain obstructions. Certain roadblocks need to be pushed out of the way. This can be done…”

I’m embarking on a new phase of my work where clients and individual sessions will take up more of my efforts. I’ve been preparing for this for several years. If you’re interested, you can contact me at qjrconsulting [at] gmail.com.

The entrepreneur and his challenges

by Jon Rappoport

July 3, 2018

This article isn’t about tax rates and government red tape and intrusive regulations. Those issues are, of course, very real.

This is about the person who has large dreams and ambitions, and has launched them, or is on the cusp of launching them. He appears to be a dying breed in this society, but he is not. Under the surface, out of the limelight, there are many, many such people. I have worked with some of them in my consulting practice, and I admire them. They have escaped from the dependency culture. They have energy, and they move forward. They don’t set gross limits on themselves. They understand the founding ideas on which this country was built.

On one level, the share the trait of resistance. They don’t back down and opt for safe and easy solutions. They don’t bow down to the system or prevailing trends. They don’t obsessively look for excuses. Wearing a nicey-nice mask isn’t their main goal.

They deal with challenges. One, of course, is building something from the ground up. Another is building a vision into the world without scaling it back so far that it loses its unique scope, size, and power.

Entrepreneurship has a counter-intuitive core. The more the enterprise is built to the scale of the original dream, and the less it is compromised, the greater the chances of success.

This is something most people can’t fathom. They see compromise as the ultimate instrument. They deploy it whenever they can. They strive to become experts in its use. They see invention and creation as entirely dependent on the public’s “lowest common denominator.” This, to them, is the way reality works.

And on one level, they’re right. But this isn’t the level of the person with a vision. How thrilling the enterprise becomes when it is built to be everything it was meant to be—and when, lo and behold, people respond—as if they’ve been waiting for it, for a long time. Then the entrepreneur/visionary realizes how reality CAN operate. It’s a revelation. He experiences it.

The entrepreneur needs to inspire the people he works with. Committing to his own vision through thick and thin, he has to keep it fresh and new. Even if, at times, he feels as if he’s rolling a huge stone up a hill, he can’t let the vision merge with that stone. He has to keep the vision pure. His ace in the hole is he WANTS to keep it new and pure. His final challenge is avoiding becoming rigid as he keeps the vision secure. He has to pour an elastic and far-reaching energy into his work. He has to be able to be spontaneous—there are many times when improvisation in the moment is his best ally.

If all this seems too much—it isn’t. Deep down, the entrepreneur knows it. He is tapping into a well that is bottomless. He comes to understand this secret. There are no limits.

His imagination and creative power have no boundaries.

The entrepreneur can cross a threshold and find that his work and goals have expanded to such a degree that he has become a true visionary. What he once thought was the end of his ambition was just a stepping stone, and the path he is now walking has no end.

No end.

—Always beginning.

The architect and engineer of his dream, he can simultaneously look at what he has built so far and appreciate it, and he can also see that he is, at the start of every day, inventing anew. He is, simultaneously, a thousand miles along his path, and immersed in a great Now.

My personal consulting services: creative futures

My personal consulting services: creative solutions

by Jon Rappoport

December 6, 2017

Here are three articles I’ve written about my personal consulting services. They touch on the inherent power of the individual to invent the future he profoundly desires:

ONE: I’ve worked with a number of private clients over the years. It’s been inspiring to see them find buried dreams and visions and pour energy into their fulfillment.

When I use the term “creative solutions,” I mean solutions to life itself. Because life wants to create. Creating is, to the spirit, what breathing is to the body.

Consulting has also given me the opportunity to see the uniqueness of every individual. I don’t apply a one-size-fits-all system or protocol. It’s the uniqueness that is the source of energy and vision.

When you come right down to it, every person on the planet is different. Systems and organizations don’t recognize that.

If we want to look at a root reason for the troubles that societies and civilizations encounter, there it is. Structures are put in place to produce sameness. Sameness of thought, response, and action. Whereas, the truth is, every person has his/her own take on reality. It is that personal point of view which gives birth to creative solutions.

My work with private clients has reinforced and expanded that notion. Discovering someone else’s point of view is invigorating, especially when it is backed up by their desire to make something, do something, create something in the world.

There is no reason to try to impose a synthetic and artificial point of view on another person. He/she already has, at some level, a perspective that is dynamic, even if, at present, it only exists in potential form.

Covered up by layers of sameness, the world is composed of individuals, every one of whom would grasp his/her dreams and visions and work to make them come true.

For some, grasping the unique vision results in immediate action. For others, pulling the trigger on action is the challenge. But in either case, the opportunity is there.

The great social and political struggles of history were aimed at setting the stage for this opportunity. For each individual.

When people talk about “the good life,” this is what they mean or should mean. The chance to launch creative solutions to living—because living is the prelude to inventing the future. That’s what living is for.

I write this article a few days after one of my long-term clients has just published her third book. When we began, she had perhaps an inkling she wanted to be a writer. Nothing more. Over time, that changed. And eventually, she started putting words to paper and discovered she had the ability and the wherewithal. And the desire. And the vision.

Who would have thought it possible? She did. Not every hour of every day, but enough hours and days to write three books.

I salute her. I know, from experience, that every person has his/her own “books of the future,” whatever the enterprise, arena, endeavor.

And that knowledge is an inspiration.

Spirit and soul are restless. Because they want to create something new, something large. They want to launch.

It’s as natural as breathing.

TWO: Over the years, I’ve had a number of writers and entrepreneurs as private clients.

The entrepreneurs have a specific enterprise in progress; or in mind; or they’re working on conceptualizing it.

The writers are launched on a project, stalled on a project, or trying to conceive of a project. In a few cases, they’re first-time writers.

There is no one-size-fits-all system for consulting with clients. Each individual is unique. That’s what makes the work so interesting.

A creative solution to a problem always refers back to a latent capacity of the individual. A capacity that is not being fully expressed.

In a variety of ways, the individual has “learned” to see his own future as circumscribed by limits. Therefore, his talent and energy are, to one degree or another, held in check:

“The road isn’t wide and it isn’t very long, it’s rather narrow and short.”

On that basis, he feels hemmed in. He is trying to adapt, rather than create.

Reversing that trend does not happen according to a formula. Formulas are the reason a person found himself in a bind in the first place.

My work involves seeing and understanding what the client sees and understands…and then helping him move to a more expansive “operating basis.”

Expansive in thought, and expansive in action.

The culture of a society takes pride in defining boundaries and limits. That’s the way of civilization. So be it. But the individual is different. At some level of his consciousness, he is looking for a way out, because he knows his ambitions are primarily aimed at something “wider and higher and deeper.”

That is where he would find fulfillment.

Society, civilization, education, or training do not provide that answer for him.

He does.

And that is a good thing, a very good thing. An exciting thing.

In my work, I do my best to help the individual attain answers for himself…because then he is motivated and energized to move out from his own center and create whatever he truly desires.

This is power in the truest sense of the word.

THREE: The whole basis of my private consulting services is the individual.

Why?

After all, there are many forces acting on the individual, external forces which involve, for example, manipulation of the economy, and political tricks designed to benefit the few at the expense of the many.

However, detailing how high the deck is stacked against the individual reaches a point where the only effect is going to be dissuading him from taking action to forward his goals and ambitions.

The individual can form a picture in his mind of forces acting against him, or he can form a picture of his own desired future.

If he “rests his case” with the first picture, he tends to opt for no-action, for paralysis.

If he stands behind the second picture, he can marshal plans to create what he truly wants.

In the latter case, imagination comes into play, in a very large way. How does he conceive his future? How does he see it? What energies arise?

How much does his imagination motivate him?

I’ll give you an example from my own past. Thirty years ago, I came to a crossroads in my work, in my writing. I saw commercial opportunities. I could become a fiction writer. I could write more or less standard crime fiction and take my chances on getting it published.

Of course, I knew, given the state of the publishing industry (external forces) and how it operated, that the odds were stacked against me, because the guidelines for writing “acceptable fiction” were narrow, and the tastes of editors were provincial, to say the least.

On the other hand, I could write exactly what I wanted to—and I had a picture, a vision of what that would be. I had been imagining it for many years. The vision had a powerful effect on me.

It gave me great energy. It gave me energy and feeling that were light years beyond the prospect of chaining myself to my desk and writing for strictly commercial purposes.

I weighed the two choices. I saw that either way, I was taking a gamble.

Since that was so, which way of going down in flames was preferable? Exclusively in the service of writing that wasn’t getting me out of bed in the morning with a jolt of energy, or in the service of writing that was MY OWN?

I made my choice and launched. I’ve never looked back.

This is why, in my consulting work, I focus on the individual. I focus on what he really wants, what he discovers about his vision for his future.

That’s where the energy is. That’s where commitment is. That’s where excitement is. That’s where authentic pride in accomplishment is. That’s where imagination expands and the future takes on new substance. That’s where work means something. That’s where hope flourishes. That’s where excuses fade away. That’s where half-hearted action become full-bore action. That’s where dream becomes reality.

That’s life. Finally.

My personal consulting services: the world of imagination

My personal consulting services: the world of imagination

First, a bit of background:

Someday soon, technocrats will begin assigning numbers and formulae to imagination. They will claim “quantified imagination” as their own—meaning it is a function of artificial intelligence (AI).

Remember, technocrats have one enduring quality: a limitless capacity for self-embarrassment.

Human beings use imagination because they envision something greater than ordinary reality. That’s where it all begins.

Humans use imagination because they want to exceed the stifling status quo.

AI “imagination” doesn’t exist. AI concocts constructs according to instructions and meta-instructions. It’s just another day at the office. And needless to say, there is no passion behind it. But don’t worry, the technocrats will get to that, too. They’ll claim AI has feelings and yearnings. They once read that in a science fiction novel when they were children, and they still believe it.

Humans use imagination because they are restless and at a deep level they know they are living in spaces that hem them in.

AI has no space.

You can program AI to execute five million paintings, but none of them would transmit meaning back to AI. AI would merely be carrying out one more exercise in “product-generation.”

Humans stop imagining when they turn themselves into an imitation of AI, when they decide the creative core of their being is an illusion. When they imagine there is no reason to imagine.

The individual and his life and his future are based on imagination.

In my personal consulting service, I work with imagination at different levels, depending on the client:

ONE: Expand the scope and power of imagination through specific exercises.

TWO: Work with imagination to discover a client’s profound desire to create something specific and make it fact in the world.

THREE: For a client who already knows what he wants to create in the world, utilize imagination to flesh that out, make it even more specific, and develop a strategy and a plan.

FOUR: For a client who is already creating an enterprise, improve the effectiveness of it and widen its scope.

Each of these four areas or foundations involves THE PROJECTION OF A NEW REALITY INTO THE WORLD.

Something that wasn’t there before.

Something that would never be there, were it not for the individual and his refusal to be perfectly satisfied with things as they are.

I made my choice and launched. I’ve never looked back.

The interesting thing was, once I opted for what I was imagining my own future to be, how I wanted it to be, I could, in fact, take writing jobs for clients. And I could enjoy those jobs. I could do my best. Why? Because I was already straight with myself about what I really wanted, and I was following that path. I was doing my own work with no imposed strictures and boundaries.

This is why, in my consulting work, I focus on the individual. I focus on what he really wants, what he discovers about his vision for his future.

That’s where the energy is. That’s where commitment is. That’s where excitement is. That’s where authentic pride in accomplishment is.
