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.

Also here is a great TED TALK on HAPPINESS:


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?

Manifestation Techniques 101 all the way to HeavenOctober 12, 2015

Just today I received a very interesting letter from a LFV-participant, which I hear occasionally.

She was concerned about being too egotistic in her choices, and felt that there was a conflict in her when she focused on details and specific needs, instead of being more focused on the divine.

She wanted to make sure, that she was learning to manifest at the highest level, and was addressing her true desire to be aligned with the highest light, God.

Since there are so many teachings on the market on to HOW TO MANIFEST, and the concern she voiced was a valid one, I thought I’d write about the subject today.

People usually come to the Living from Vision course from various walks of life and various levels of evolution.

Some people have already studied quite a few different manifestation techniques, or have read books about it, and generally already know quite a bit about it. Some are proficient coaches or therapists themselves.

Other people come to the Living from Visioncourse after reading the book Wisdom of the Dolphins by Ilona Selke, or other books on the incredible miraculous nature of the universe.

Today I would like to explain to you how the same exact LFV course can addresses all the different needs of people: Those who are just starting out on their path of awaking, as well as those who are already advanced.

Although we would love to think that we are one blank slate when we arrived here on Earth, we are not.

Many studies on reincarnation have proven that we arrive on Earth with memories, wisdom and knowledge from previous lifetimes.

A great study on this subject can be found in this book: I have lived before! The True Story of Reincarnation of Devi Shanti

Mahatma Gandhi even was involved in ascertaining the absolute truth and diligent research of all aspects of this case. I highly recommend reading this book!

For some people the lessons of a previous life feel like a burden. For other people their gained wisdom is serving them now and they seem to be gifted with extra bonuses.

Can you imagine how a person who has been a monk or yogi in a previous life, may feel in this modern life?
Previous yogis and monks usually shine a divine luminous bright light in this life even, and yet they often find life on Earth a little bit disorienting if not outright challenging.

Some people gave vows in their past lives, yet they don’t recall what those vows were!
Most monks give a vow of poverty.
Yogis or Buddhists give a vow of not going further in their evolution until every single soul on Earth had reached Enlightenment.
That may prove challenging as a continuous stream of souls are coming in, while many graduate.

Unaddressed, those vows runs our lives, whether we know it or not.
It is time to move on, and to gain a more expanded understandings of being a spiritual being.

To previous monks and yogis relationships usually don’t come easily, working for money makes no sense, taking care of one’s own survival seems a chore, and yet they have this beautiful luminosity in their soul.

And then we also find people who come to the Living from Vision course who are the top managers, CEOs, who already made their millions, and now they want to develop more of their heart and their ability to create meaningful connections to their spouse and their children.

To those yogis and monks, life here on Earth may seem hard, and they might feel like they landed in the wrong place, or they wish they didn’t have to deal with the nitty-gritty of every day live. Yet, they did incarnate for some good reason down here on Earth!

To the top manager,
for whom creating money is easy, creating a deeply soul-filled and meaningful life, and deeply fulfilling human connections may seem to be the next real challenge.

For every single one of us, it is important to learn how to manifest OUR OWN NEXT STEP.
That may mean to work on deeper beliefs, which we hold, and it may mean that we learn how to create a more positive daily mental habit.

All of these techniques need to be practiced every day. This daily practice of seeing the future fulfilled, will bring more light into every thing we do.

And in time it will bring our divine light into all of our daily actions, into our work, and taking care of ourselves in harmony with our higher calling.

Some come to the Living from Vision course for the first time and wishing to learn the ABCs, the 101 of manifesting, and they will be guided by the step-by-step exercises of the LFV Course.

Others will find self-actualization, and living a life of purpose to be there next step.
Either way, people grow by using the Living from Vision course in incremental steps, and according to their inner capacity, each one of us will be reaching one step higher on our own path of evolution.

Whether we start with a very personal wish, aw we start working with our Higher Self, (we call it the Ideal Self) we will meet our Inner Guides, and from there on e start working with our purpose of our life.

As we keep practicing the secrets of manifesting, we naturally ascend into higher levels of relating to the universe and to the One source, God.

We all co-create reality all the time, we dream up our future, and learn as soul from our mistakes as well as from our achievements.

Whether we create consciously or unconsciously, co-create we will.
Some people start out with smaller goals, concrete physical desires, and that is perfect. Others have huge goals, physical goals, all are fine. We will ascend on our ladder of evolution naturally.

Just like in the Hierarchy of Needs as we learned from Maslow, it states, we must fulfill our basic survival needs, before we progress on to meet higher level growth needs. Once these needs have been reasonably satisfied, one then is naturally propelled to reach the highest level called self-actualization.

We always create, either via our subconscious mind, or via our intentional focus.
We carry within us many beliefs, desires, traumatic imprints from the past lives, or even some from this life.

Whether we like it or not, we carry imprints and beliefs from parental influences, as well from the ideals that our society holds, or suggestions and desires that arise from advertisements in regards to how we should look, feel or what we should have.

All of those programs, which are acting mostly unsupervised in our subconscious mind, do co-create our daily life.

In the Living From Vision course we learn to be guided by a higher force as we make our choices.
We first allow our intuition to form our wishes, physical or non-physical. Later we consult with our Higher Self, and later yet we practice connecting with our Inner Guides to start living a life of purpose.

Each time we do the Living from Vision course again, we dive deeper into our greater essence, and each time around we develop greater strength, abilities, and are able to express more of our true Soul’s light.

The good thing about the Living from Vision course is, that you can do the LFV-course over and over again.

Some people do the LFV-course thee times per year, saying that those are the best weeks of their year.
Some people do the LFV-course once a year, and some people simply keep listen to one of their favorite morning and evening audios that accompany the LFV-course.
My husband Don Paris, Pd.D. and I did that every single day for 15 years straight!

For those that are worried that their choices are too much directed by their ego, we simply suggest to surrender the wish to God and the Highest Good for All.
This is the perfect way to assure that whatever personal wish we might have, it is okayed by the divine.

We are here to learn how to interact, as conscious being, with consciousness expressed in form and thereby grow in our brilliance of our soul awareness.

The higher we’re capable of opening our vessel /diamond of our soul to the Source, the more we can hold a much vaster time space matrix within the wings of our awareness. Thus we gain mastery over time-space and evolve as souls on our journey home.

And all this does not need be complicated!
Indeed the secret lies hidden in doing the daily steps that help us learn and practice, no matter which level of proficiency we have already arrived at.

The Living from Vision course teaches us a way to learn the process of how to consciously interact with matter, and in the process we are purifying our core presence (Soul) in what appears 3-D density.

All of life is simply condensed consciousness.
And ultimately, there is only One Source, and only one direction that we can go.

Therefore the LFV course offers people from all levels of evolution how to interact with consciousness in the time space matrix in 3-D.

It may be the most hidden secret, but life on Earth is like being in a school, where we become increasingly more luminous and potent beings.

Don and I also offer various other series of seminars and different modalities of learning of how to interact with life as a conscious being.
Each tool in turn helps the student to focus their soul’s light at greater greater levels, and naturally thereby becoming a greater vehicle of service.

We offer the Living from Vision course, Radionics, or seminars on past life regressions, or the Tracking Methods, developed by Dr. Vernon Wolf as Holodynamics, and through our Soul Awareness Training. seminars.

However most people need to start by step-by-step learning how to make their life work. That is why the LFV-course is the best to start out with.
And as we grow, so does the LFV course. And the more we grow the more we are feeling the desire to be in alignment with the Highest for All, and with the One Source.

Precise dreaming something into existence is sort of like learning a particular art-form down here on Earth, like drawing, or learning how to play the piano.

We don’t simply just splatter color on the paper and say it was divine will, or we don’t just run our fingers over the piano and say it was divinely inspired.

We learn step-by-step the techniques to play and eventually graduate to fly into the creation of symphonic and divine music.

People who grow with the LFV course, over 10 years let’s say, find themselves taking the Living from Vision course to their own new next levels over time.
All our needs and steps are equally important and we can all manifest our wishes with integrity and alignment to the Source or God, or the All-That-Is.

Their access to their inner highest self or how and what they manifest evolves over time.That’s the beauty of it.

We are continuously growing souls and leaning to bring more light and love onto this Earth or this plane of existence is the task at hand.

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
