Conversations with Chief Joseph & John Cali
February 7, 2002
Since 1992, John Cali has been communicating with a non-physical
entity called Joseph. In one of his many physical lifetimes, this
spirit was incarnated as the legendary Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce
tribe in what is now Oregon. These messages are a
blend of information from Joseph and John.
John, I am prompted to write you because Chief Joseph is always
speaking about remembering who we are. I am starting to remember more
and more, but all too often my conscious mind seems to forget what it
has learned and slips back to forgetfulness. I don't wish to forget
any longer. How do I do this? How do I keep the focus?
You must first remember this: Your higher self is always (and I
emphasize "always"), and in all ways, in a state of bliss, in a state
of deep joy. It cannot be otherwise. For the nonphysical dimension,
where your higher self has its primary focus, is a place of high
vibration. And so any being in that dimension is experiencing only
high vibrations, only joy.
When you are there, you cannot experience the lower vibrations as you
do on the earth plane. Those low vibrations include any emotions you
would call negative. For example, pain, sorrow, sadness, anger,
bitterness, resentment, etc. etc. You name it - they're all the same
because they never feel good to you.
Therefore, anytime you're feeling any negative emotion you are, in
that moment, disconnected from your higher self, your soul. And you
are forgetting who you really are.
But there is a great benefit to being able to feel negative emotion.
It's always a sure signal that, in that moment of negativity, you have
disconnected from your higher self. In other words, negative feelings
serve as simple reminders that you are off-course. Reminders that you
are straying from the intention you, at the soul level, held when you
chose to incarnate this time around.
And positive emotion is always a sure signal you are connected to your
higher self. You're remembering who you really are. You're
remembering the bliss you, at your soul level, exist in for eternity.
You don't have to know all the nitty gritty details, if you will,
about your soul's experience on, what you would call in earthly terms,
a day-to-day basis.
All you really need to know is your soul is in a state of bliss,
eternal bliss, eternal joy. And it is in a state of constant growth,
as are you, its human partner. You are ever-changing. And your soul
is absolutely loving the journey.
You, at the soul level, are on an eternal journey. You'll never
finish it, for it is your reason for being. You are on an endless
journey of joy. Since it's endless, you cannot get it wrong. You
cannot make any mistakes.
You, at the soul level, came to your present incarnation for one
simple reason: to experience joy in exercising your divine power to
create exactly whatever you want. And to experience even more joy
through the resulting growth and remembering.
You are always growing, whether you are physically or nonphysically
focused. It cannot be otherwise, for growth is your natural course.
It is your destiny. And joy is your natural state.
To sum it all up, simply enjoy the journey, for it's all you'll ever
have. There are no final destinations.
And so, let me get to my answer to your questions: How do I keep from
forgetting? How do I keep the focus?
The answer is simple: Seek only joy in your life.
I realize that sounds like an impossible task to many on the earth
plane. But it is not impossible. It may be difficult at first,
especially if you've been habitually focusing on what does not bring
But you can move into a state where most, and even all, of your
present moments are filled with joy. And you can achieve that in this
But you cannot do it if you insist on focusing only on what most of
your world focuses on. It behooves you to pay attention to what
you're paying attention to. If you read your daily newspapers, for
example, you're paying attention to what most of the world is focusing
on. And just how does that make you feel? Certainly not joyful.
You have to move out of the mainstream to be joyful. You have to be
willing to do whatever it takes to feel good. You have to be
relentless in your insistence that you will choose only experiences
that feel good. Whether we're talking about relationships, jobs,
places to live - it doesn't matter.
What does matter is that you choose only experiences that feel good.
That you make a deliberate, conscious choice to experience only joy in
The more you focus on joy, the more joy the Universe will deliver to
you. The more you focus on what's less than joyful to you, the more
the Universe will deliver that to you.
The more joy you experience it this physical lifetime, the more you
remember who you really
Joy is not only the key to remembering who you are. Joy IS who you
