HAPPINESS: What makes us really happyDecember 12, 2016


Dear Reader

Today I was driving down the streets here in Bali, and noticed the smells of the flowers, the trees I passed, the chicken that was running across the street on my way to my favorite restaurant THE KAFE here in Ubud.

I really felt happy smelling the flowers, the incensce watting by, and seeing the simple things like the flowers on the tree the sunshine, the reflection in the water of the rice fields that had just been planted, and the chicken running around freely.

It reminded me of the song that I heard when I was a teenager by the song maker UDO JUERGENS. All the things that really count you do not get with money. There are friends, dreams, in the nighttime the sound of the trees in the wind, all that which really counts in life you cannot buy with money.

Of course it rhymed a lot better in German, and it really resonated with my young heart that looked at the adult world pursuing work and jobs, money and careers as if they really mattered.

Here living in Bali I realized that the women and the men carry their head high because they feel loved by their mothers and fathers, grandparents and uncles and aunts. All of them adore the little children and give them the most fundamental feeling of security which comes through having a body to hug, and love that protects and cares.

No amount of toys, no degree of intellectual fortitude that they could purchase by paying a tutor, nothing absolutely nothing could make up for that sense of self-esteem thata human develops when they feel absolutely loved from the moment they are conceived.

Here in Bali children are considered a blessing, and an absolute necessity. Who else will take care of you in your older age? And only if you've been wonderfully nice to your own child will your child want to return that love to you someday when you need it.

And you know what, the Dalai Lama says that Happiness comes from sharing compassion, from having concerns for others and being of service to them.

Actually in the Living From Vision course we teach that living your purpose, and contributing to the world around you, is part of what makes you happy.

And the HIARCHY OF NEEDS by MASLOW tells us that we all need to have serveral levels of our self fulfilled, like our physical needs, survival, and relations. And next we become creative and then express our purpose and seek self expression and lastly self transcendence

What a great concept!

Bali people love, smile, and appreciate life as is, not measured by the amounts of rupiah in their pocket but by their connection to God and family.

Driving to my favorite restaurants today I smelled flowers, saw the light reflecting in the water of the rice fields and felt alive. Aliveness is a precious gift!

And then I happened upon this study that I wanted to share with you today:

Happiness depends on health and friends, not money, says new study LINK to the article CLICK HERE

Also have a look at the TED TALK at the end of this BLOG.

 And I would like to add one more thing:

HAPPINESS depends also on the feeling that we are in the DRIVER'S SEAT of our life. All too often we feel at the beck and call of other people's needs, requirements, and commitments and many people feel that their personal needs and dreams don't get much attention nor fulfillment.

Happiness actually comes from listening to your inner self, giving yourself time to be, to be with yourself, and to listen to the whispers of your heart and soul.

It comes from taking your whispers seriously, and then making this whisper a declaration to the universe, letting the universe know what you REALLY want. The Living from Vision course helps you find that inner voice, make sure you give your inner self attention every day, and helps you to MANIFEST your dreams step-by-step.

Many if not most peole dream to find love, family, wanting to manifest the right livelihood, discover and live their purpose in life, have the kind of home they want to live in, make the kind of income they wish to make, and enjoy health and a brilliant old age.

All of these wishes and dearms are important, and we do feel happy when we fulfill our innermost dreams. But all too often they slide away in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Take a vacation for your soul, dive into yourself and discover how your life would turn out if you were LIVING FROM YOUR VISION.

I am looking forward to assisting you in this process.

Have you heard of Artificial Intelligence?November 15, 2016

Have you heard of Artificial Intelligence?

Outside of the view of most of us the SUPER COMPUTERS are on the march! Self learning computers, nanotechnology, and cyborg technology are going to be something we will be having to think about in the near future.


Fast-forward the fact that they are already training people in how to handle human emotional issues with the fact that they are bonded to ROBOTS and you might see where I'm heading!


Being human may require a new definition soon. What is your definition of being human?

Or shall I ask you this question: WHO ARE YOU?

Our human condition may change, we may get faster brains, but what is it that makes you YOU. And what defines your consiousness.

Some of our leading scientists actually believe that consciousness is something you can transfer into a computer. The TRANS-HUMAN movement believes that longevity or immortality lies in the transference of our thoughts and personality into some database. Having a douplicate of your thoughts, let's say a CHATBOT that has your cadence, our logic, your signature, WOULD THAT BE YOU?


Now you probably wouldn't be reading this were part of that movement. Most likely you either have a hunch or certain knowing that you are way more than your body, your thoughts and your personality combined.

Now many of my readers here will probably adhere to the believe that our SOUL rather than your personality, or your particular physiology.

Could you tell me where your SEAT of YOUR SOUL is?

Would you, with absolute certainty, be able to connect to the source of my soul? Would you know when you had made contact with my SOUL's COURT?

In our daily lives we often times are just responding to all the demands put on us, and rarely take the time to train the part of us that has access to the subtler dimensions, which exists beyond the physical or mental expression of ourselves.


But since we are on a training ground here called Life on Earth, many people are not exactly sure how to get in touch with that part of themselves yet, at least not with a 100% certainty. Most people don't have control over their thoughts, let alone the subtler realms of soul awareness.

If you wish to awaken from the slumber of being simply a bio-computer with predictable thoughts, and somewhat predictable emotions, and a somewhat predictable genetic evolution, join me in the passage of moving from being a Homo sapiens into the Homo Divinicus. (Okay I made that word up)

if we wish to remain masters in the future, we will have to have an upper edge on computers. Computers might be able to synthesize new information based on old data but they cannot. In the eyes and meet your SOUL.

If you know how it feels like peer into the soul of another being, you will know whether a robot is staring at you or a real life conscious being.

This might sound like science fiction, but if you even just take a look superficially at what television and movies have to offer you can see where our future is headed. Stephen Hawkins  the renowned British theoretical physicists and Elon Musk who put PayPal on the map, who put space X rockets into the atmosphere as well as Tesla cars on the road both of them, talk about the advent of A I with great dread.

Ilona masks believes we have to become cyborgs in order to meet the challenge of the dominance of Artificial Intelligence in the near future.

However, I'm merging all of us to take our EVOLUTION seriously and put our foot solidly on the ground of consciousness.

All mastery begins with simple steps. It requires daily attendance to the subject which you wish to master.

I would recommend that you make it a daily habit to turn inward, to activate your CONSCIOUSNESS, the part of you that goes beyond the mind.


You can do this easily in just 12 minutes every day with the living from vision morning at. We provide audio exercises that guide you gently into finding that part of yourself, your higher self.


By learning how to focus your mind, buy in training your INNER SELF you will find your way step-by-step.


Indicates to come it might view of crucial value for to realize that we live in a holographic universe that interacts with your consciousness. PROVIDED you have TRAINED your CONSCIOUSNESS.


This universe operates according to Newtonian physics, according to laws of cause and effect a lot of the time. However when you have managed to master your FOCUS you can then start interacting with the microscopic universe at deeper and more refined levels and direct the show of your life with your consciousness.


Quantum physics has proven to us that the microcosm is not governed by the same laws as the macrocosm. This means you have to train your consciousness who such micro levels that you can have ACCESS to the MICRO-LEVELS of the UNIVERSE.


Are you ready?


People can create miracles and magic on a daily basis once they've trained their mind and consciousness to do so.


Would you like to join that movement?

QUESTIONS by CAROLEOctober 28, 2015

Hi Iona

Could I ask you a quick question.

I am busy reading your book “Wisdom from the Dolphins”.
I would like to know what happens to our loved ones if we change universes.

Are they still in their version of the universe or do they shift with us.
Do we experience the same people differently depending on which dimension we are in.

Are we still in all dimensions even though we are consciously in a new version of our universe?

I am just wondering what happens when we create something new, to those around us. Thank you for your insights.

With love


Dear Carol

Thank you so much for your question, it’s a very valid one.
Will everyone around me change with me, when I have a vision I want to manifest.

There really are two sides to the answer:

First of all, everything is a reflection of ourselves, so the changes you make will usually reflect themselves in the changes outside of you.

Secondly, the changes you will make may entail that some of the faces that are no longer in resonance with your new reality, may change.

In other words, different people may become new players in your world. Players, more in resonance with you, more suited to your new dream.

As long as you’re willing to allow that change to happen you will experience the fulfillment of your vision and dreams

However if you want particular people in our life to still be there, even when they don’t share the same dream, you may encounter slight difficulties.

And again, we all have different values and sometimes we want to grow, and yet stick it out so to speak with our mate/partner for example, no matter what the cost.

Our partner may change, as they are the perfect reflection of our inner dreaming mind. Like my husband used to remind me: “Remember, I am a reflection of your inner beliefs, just make me into an Angel!” So I did! That was fun!!!!

It is an amazing universe, everything shifts according to how we shift.

We are all vibrations in an interlocking puzzle that are in perfect resonance with each other.

In other words, as you change, so will the world around you change as well.
As the adage says: As you shout into the forest, the forest will shout back to you.

But what happens with family members, of one pursues their dreams:
Let’s say you have children and a husband, and you wish to live somewhere in Tahiti or somewhere comparable.
Maybe your children are still in school, your husband still has a job.
This is an scenario I am taking from a real life experience of one of our LEV-participants in Germany.

Let’s just say, additionally to your deep desire to live an island lifestyle, you also dearly hold the values of being together with your family and honoring them first and foremost.

As you may well know, we manifest everything according to our deeper values and beliefs.

Having said that, as you continue holding your vision, you might find that people and things will rearrange themselves to fit into your vision.

The LFV participant I mentioned earlier had her dream come true in two years time, exactly when it was in perfect timing with everyone in her family.
Always ask for the Highest for All concerned, and the best will manifest in harmony.

Here is my personal experience with an impossible dream:
A long time ago I used to imagine that Don and I would have a Retreat Center. I could see it happen, however when I told Don about it, he had no inclination towards my vision whatsoever.

Moreover at that time, there was no way in the world that we could afford to build a center like that. We were living in Hawaii at the time.

Nevertheless, another friend of mine kept asking me about this desire, and we joked about it coming true often. I told him: “Some day…some day…!”

Five years later my husband and I happened to be in Bali on our way to look at an Ashram in India, where had been asked to co-teach, as someone suggested for us to look at a house for sale on the North-shore of Bali.

Looking at that house in Bali just once, instantly we felt like it was our Home.
Regardless of our intended life in India, where we were going to live at an Ashram and teach there, we decided to buy this house on Bali instead.

A few years later, one step added to another and our Retreat Center Shangrila built itself almost as if guided by unseen hands, (www.bali-shangrila.com)
It was years later, when the time was right, the price was right, everything lined up perfectly and built itself as if guided by a higher force.

Years later I found that at age 24, in 1885, I had written up the vision on one of my homework assignment for a future vision of mine. I had totally forgotten that I had had this vision so long ago

So do hold the vision, know that everything and everyone around you will be guided to be in the right place at the right time.

And as always: Ask for the higher source to adjust your plan according to what is highest for you and everybody involved.

I hope this answer was useful to you

With loving blessings

Yours Ilona

Meditation, Imagery & the Process of Evolving SpirituallyMay 28, 2015


The other day I received an Email from a thoughtful cultural-creative, with the following question:

There is a saying in mystic tradition: “As above, so below.” 

Do you think that this is true in meditation? 

Is going up into the upper realms the same as descending into the lower realms? 

Or is meditation like the children’s board game, Snakes and Ladders? You climb the chakra ladder, and sometimes you slide back and have to climb again? 

Here is my answer: (more…)

The POWER of CHOICEMay 14, 2015


by Ilona Selke http://www.livingfromvision.com

The other night I was invited to dinner in Ubud, the artist town of Bali. It turned out that the person sitting next to me had worked in the early years with Harry Palmer of Avatar, to help ‘put him on the map’.

He was older now, and had accumulated a sizable amount of wisdom, which was shining through his eyes. I couldn’t help but ask: What is the quintessence of your life’s studies? And if he were to put it into one sentence what would it be? (more…)

What I got from the LFV courseNovember 13, 2014

What has the course given you?
Soooooooo much, I can’t put it into words.  I’ve felt more positive, that life is falling into place before me.  Like I am no longer a web of solidified impulses reacting to life in front of me.  I am no longer a rat in the lab, a human in the matrix.  Now that I see this, I feel some grief that so many people are living this way, hypnotized, with amnesia of their power.
I have TONS of energy that is super, super efficient.  I have developed a daily spiritual practice as I have never done before. ….
I have become skilled at using imagery throughout the day to “see” things differently.  I never did that before.  I just ruminated over limitations.
And I am an Aries, always wanting to move forward and blaze a trail, so I was frustrated a lot with the “box” and just miserable when I tried to put myself in it.
This LFV course opened up the door of my consciousness.  I reunited with my half-sister and aunt after years of strained relationships.  I have a more healing attitude toward relationships, seeing people’s higher self and dialoguing with them, instead of my leader Aries fire viewing relationships as conflictual or win-lose.
I also saw in meditation today, a very very playful dolphin, who came and tapped my third eye with his nose.  I really would like,  at some point,  to come to the dolphin retreats in
Bali ….  Or to continue my study with Ilona in any way I can.
 With much gratitude,
Tracy Kelly
