Here is a quick fun experiment for cat owners. Go find your cat right now and start telling him/her some bad things. Tell your moggy that the US has gone to the dogs (!) because of Trump, say that air pollution is at a record level, mention the imminent global crash as the EU breaks apart, talk about Putin, terrorists, fluoride and bird ‘flu (which is obviously just “man ‘flu” for birds).
I am willing to bet that little Tibbles (insert name as appropriate) just does his/her normal morning checks – food in the right place? what’s the weather doing? is my fave sleep place ready for me to curl up? etc. – and that heart rate and other functions will remain well in the green.
“Aha,” you say with the manic gleam that comes with playing these games, “But that’s because I can’t say it in cat language.”

I am willing to bet that there is something you do regularly that you wish you didn’t. Something self-defeating perhaps, or something you do and then regret and then do again. And again.
Could be something as small as smoking or as big as repeated bad relationship choices, but there will be some kind of cycle involved and, probably, just when you thought you had it “beat”, kerr-pow there it is again, cropping up irresistibly.

Where to start as you redesign the energy weave that creates the illusion of your universe? As you change shapes and meanings and find that your own light and all the other lights strung out perfectly as far as can be seen shine brighter now.
One good place can be in your relationships, your interactions with those others.
Think about the “hook” you are carrying around to find friends and lovers and enemies and all the other characters of your internal, non-existent drama. Think about the invisible “you scratch my back and I will scratch yours” element to your internal model, the “script” (in psychologist jargon) that your unconscious wanted to play out as it fits together with others’ internal models.
“If you do xyz I will know that I can trust you”
“I used to love you but then you did that thing and it meant I couldn’t love you anymore”
“As long as you don’t hurt me I will be your friend”

Picture or feel yourself for a moment as standing/sitting/lying in a desert, or less than a desert, an infinite empty space. Now fill that space all around you, as far as the extent of the universe, with a multi-dimensional weave of energy (whatever that looks like to you). There are you, at the centre of the universe, and all around in every direction and dimension is nothing but this weave, like a lapping ocean that goes on forever.
(You just became a quantum physicist! Does that feel good?)

Have you ever played a game of Monopoly where you lost concentration for a moment while somebody shook the dice and then it was going to be your go (or someone else’s) but then you FELT something in the air and had a double check and found that that other player had landed on your hotel and you managed to scream “Rent!” before anything else could happen?
Or what about that attractive girl in a bar, and a man approaches, and she knows before he has uttered a syllable that she is not interested. Even if he works out and he dresses ok and is perfectly good-looking and all the other boxes the guy might think he ticked. She knows as surely as you and I know we are going to put the phone down on a cold sales call with just the first intake of breath at the other end.
How does she know? How do we know?
