Wisdom Teachings: [#61] Protecting and Respecting Free Will (May 2014)

Season 9, Episode 2
Available worldwide

As you engage in the practice of true will, you will encounter thoughts, feelings, and situations that will try to pull you away from your path of ascension. You will always have the freedom of choice to follow the influences that pull you away from your path of ascension. Or, you can choose to perceive these forces as your greatest allies. It all comes down to how you assert yourself in the face of adversary. David Wilcock explains how you can protect your free will in such a way that creates the positive growth needed to help other people ascend in this presentation originally webcast May 12, 2014.

As a Step father , i find really hard to find they line between the teaching and not being invading the free will of my kid, between his choices of playing video game, not enjoying the school, wanting to be awake untill late, etc etc.... how to address in those cases? what you guys think?

heartinmotion888, posted on August 25, 2016

In 1964, there was a change in the standards of ADVERTISING ..there was a decision was made that no longer are we to use sexuality and violence in advertising methods were allowed to be used...the news was that there was 50 percent of the Illumnati that have realized that we will survive the earth changes...we must all do it together in HARMONY ...with LOVE ...in order for humanity to survive..however the other half of the ILLUMINATI...was not agreeing to this..and inspite of their decision to take a positive course...there is a part of the Illuminati ...that chose to continue the fear, and negative methods that were used in advertising...themes... ..I guess just as the dark agenda has free will to choose...to serve the dark agendas...how do you stand by and not say anything ...???

heartinmotion888, posted on August 25, 2016

I guess as long as we live in this physical body as humans there will be the existence of duality..or good and evil...
it will continue to be the choice to be part of one side or the other..as what we focus on we do create as an experience .
learning the principle of free will is an on going lesson...thank you David for giving clarity to the application of free will...
as I sometimes experience ...going overboard and speaking what I know as truth and often find that it goes overboard
in to another person's belief system...which is very much like an invasion of their choices...and so often
the words that I may write to another person automatically gets deleted...by spirit...
and I take it as a clue...to not repeat it or say it...what comes to my mind are the words:

if you say that one must be at least 51% positive to ascend into 4D then how can you have negative beings in 4D & 5D?

cesarinow, posted on October 12, 2016

i think they can still be negative... but in a lower scale? but its my opinion :)

Are you sure? My understanding is that before a man can become a Mason he needs to profess his belief in GOD but he can be of any religion. Please research this subject more carefully. I know very good people who are Masons. It is important that before you claim that the Mason's are negative that you very carefully research this. Please don't believe just outsider information.Many of these people also go on to become Shriners. These people do many services to help people.

This might be the most complete and profound insight I have ever experienced. It just brings it all together so nicely.

Thanks David

I am confused if our ascension to 3 and 4th dimension depends upon love, how did the et s get to the higher demission's of 4 and 5 on negative side?

mlorell29, posted on April 2, 2016

Hi Dancecyn,

Its a good very question. I would like to hear David's reply to this too. I am not sure of all the details however Ild like to offer this: the 4th dimension has a lower level and an upper level. This I have experienced personally. The upper 4th level is far different then the lower part of it, in fact I have sometimes wondered why these two are part of the same dimension, but I think its because they are both still the astral level. Unlike the lower 4th, the upper 4th is beautiful- so much fun and joy!

From what I have been able to gather, the astral level is the (only) place that the negative ets go to play around with us. The dark forces can not touch us once we pass the 4 dimension into the levels above. They access our energy bodies from the 4th. Therefore, we have to skip 4 D and go directly to 5 D, requiring us to jump 2 levels of dimensions. I don't know if David holds this view (it seems like he doesn't talk about this), but some present day awakened luminaries say this is a feat never accomplished before anywhere in the Universe! Our human history on planet earth is a very unique, intense and important one. It sounds pretty daunting but its a challenge we are able to accomplish if we truly want it.

This is also why there is so much help being offered to us all now from the heavenly realms; much more than usual. I'm not sure if the naughty ets are working around some worm hole or what. However, I know they are not following the Universal imperative of honoring free will. Perhaps by some trickery, they have managed to circumvent the way of things.

Well I hope this helps a little anyway!

Hi David,

Thanks for this episode. I have tried many times to get into contact with you, which so far hasn't worked out. So, let's give this 10% approach a try.

What I do, from my background as an Electrical Engineer, is to research Aether Science and Free Energy Technology. The Aether theory gives one quite a different perspective on science and allows one to come to a "theory of everything" which Einstein has been unable to find. It also offers a path to building free energy devices, although in my experience this quite challenging to do in practice. Yet, it can be done and therefore will be done.

If you are interested to find out more, I have collected some of my earlier messages to you on my website, where you can also find quite a lot of information on the above subjects:


And of course, I can be reached by e-mail: lamare at gmail dot com.

I invite anyone who is interested in the above subjects to contact me.


Arend Lammertink, MScEE.

Give David credit for trying to break free of the old physics theories that our culture has been stuck on for over a century. I like the fact that he presents his concepts. We need more people who can think outside the box. It is very obvious that the current physics needs to be revised.
I also like the fact that you bring your knowledge into the debate. THIS IS WHAT OUR SOCIETY NEEDS. W need to start to discuss new concepts. Some will be wrong others will be closer to correct but at least we will be thinking instead of just absorbing information.
Together maybe we can come closer to the truth.
Have you ever thought of creating your own website with your concepts presented? I would love to see this done....obviously you are intelligent too.

lamare8, posted on March 7, 2016

David does a great job introducing his concepts and connecting many dots. Many of his intuitive ideas make sense, such as that the Universe is alive and that DNA is seeded by the Universe.

What is wrong with our science is that the aether theory has been thrown overboard, actually for no good reason at all. And because Maxwell only described half of phenomenon we call the electromagnetic field, science diverted into a direction whereby we end up with two theories which contradict one another. Einstein's relativity theory made it almost impossible to understand gravity, because the concept of gravity has been made a part of the concept of space and also introduced a fixed speed of light, which gave rise to the idea that one can physically travel back and forth trough time. Quantum Mechanics has been invented in order to make up for the missing part of the Maxwell equations by resorting to statistics. This throws the fundamental harmonic nature of Physical Reality overboard and replaces it erroneously with a fundamentally random nature, which a/o gave rise to the idea of "spooky action at a distance", a ridiculous idea which most scientists take for granted.

I have my own website and do work on presenting concepts like this. However, I have trouble finishing things and keeping focussed. For example, I started writing an article on this, but haven't worked on it for quite some time:


Actually, a proper aether theory, as described by Paul Stowe, connects very nicely and naturally to David's "source field" concept:


Perhaps the most fundamental problem with current physics is that the concepts of space and time have been intertwined with one another, which makes it almost impossible to distinguish what is where from what is when and makes it all incredibly difficult and complex. We simply can't continue on this path, it is a dead end. We need to return to common sense and logic, as Nikola Tesla understood and taught, as you can read in my (partial) article linked above:

"According to the relativists, space has a tendency to curvature owing to an inherent property or presence of celestial bodies. Granting a semblance of reality to this fantastic idea, it is still self-contradictory. Every action is accompanied by an equivalent reaction and the effects of the latter are directly opposite to those of the former. Supposing that the bodies act upon the surrounding space causing curvature of the same, it appears to my simple mind that the curved spaces must react on the bodies and, producing the opposite effects, straighten out the curves. Since action and reaction are coexistent, it follows that the supposed curvature of space is entirely impossible.

But even if it existed it would not explain the motions of the bodies as observed. Only the existence of a field of force can account for them and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. All literature on this subject is futile and destined to oblivion. So are also all attempts to explain the workings of the universe without recognizing the existence of the ether and the indispensable function it plays in the phenomena."

Thanks David! You have such a wisdom and the way you explain things is amazing, deep at the same time with an elegant simplicity. What you're saying it's so true, in the past, i had similar experiences and changed my mind. Sometimes we think we do the best for others but it can be counter productive.

haha poor David cut his hair because someone told him it was long, he also said in another episode people don't like the way he moves his hands so much??? i mean a lot of you guys are just completely missing the message aren't you lol? like 100% swing & miss hahaha

bretthaugen, posted on April 12, 2015

How come the good guys can't give us more information openly, yet the bad guys are required to simply tell us what their doing as to some sort approval or tacit consent?

In other words, you say the good guys sort of have their hands tied when trying to help us, yet the cabal can simply tell us what their doing and somehow that's not interrupting our free will.

lumaralee, posted on March 22, 2015

I wrote down the five rules given in this episode about respecting free will, and I will actively work to follow them. Thanks for another great episode, David!

LaneLight, posted on March 15, 2015

So.......I wonder when I read comments that David is using too many recaps in these episodes instead of presenting all new material........

Are those comments infringing on David's free will?

I think David would maintain his boundaries and would accept those comments as merely suggestions.

It is a very fine line, probably based on each person's motive and intention.

Great lesson, David! You go, guy!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

vpeck2, posted on August 7, 2014

Such good advice for how to speak to newbies that I needed to hear! I have hit people w/ everything all at once and it doesn't usually go well. Also, I know the big lesson I'm meant to learn is about control, patience, non-attachment to the outcome, and respecting others' free will. In Human Design terms I am a 6/2 Role Model/ Hermit, Left Angle Incarnation Cross of the Alpha, Projector who is here to Guide others, WHEN INVITED!!!!! The hardest lesson is with my primary relationship of 3 years. He is a dear, sweet man and we met synchronistically - we really feel it was destiny bringing us together, but it is hard sometimes for me to watch him wallow in victimhood, depression, and walking around with the weight of the world on his shoulders, when I have told him many different ways he could get help and free himself once and for all. But he is afraid and tries desperately to cling to denial. I went thru one of these programs myself and completely transformed my life when I was 44 yrs. old, so I speak from experience. Anyway, I am now trying to just love him unconditionally and not be attached to whether he helps himself or not in this lifetime… I realize that this is my lesson! Wonderful show, David, and I'm reading your Synchronicity Key, too. Oh, and I scored a 70 on the Wanderer test. Blessings and love to you, David.

LaneLight, posted on February 26, 2015

With a few close friends, I have started an "AA Group", meaning to ACCEPT and ALLOW. That is hard to do when you care about others and want to help. But I have to remember that I might be taking away their life lessons if I "fix" all their problems. It is best to follow David's example--just BE an example, and gently explain the way when asked how and why we do certain things.

I try to LIVE my truth and speak my truth only when asked. (Doesn't always happen, but it is a goal!)

jbtenor, posted on May 30, 2014

This is exactly the understanding I needed about respecting others free will. For the longest time I would hit people with everything I knew and they would react exactly as you described in this episode. One day it just hit me that I need to listen to what people have to say more so than trying to make them believe what I believe. Absolutely brilliant, David. Thank you for everything you do brother! Peace!

Great advice on working with newbies. Dribble information out in little pieces at a time. I've been doing this from a practical standpoint as people can get overwhelmed, but I never thought that doing so was a form of "respecting others free will". O

I do believe that they are watching me because during my Meditation I can see the third eye.
Afterwards I continue seeing the third eye watching me everywhere I look.
They are luminous and translucent. The eyes are all around me.
In the dark they are in colors of red, blue or green.
Can you comment on what I am experiencing?

I like your hair... long, short, or bald... you're still David... or really... still a great soul having an earthly experience... thanks for being here with me (us) and sharing your "wisdom".

Question... I have your Synchronicity book... I feel there must be some reason why this 3rd nuclear event has happened in Japan; I have asked spirit, but have not received an answer... any insights? it just seems too non-random... 2 nuclear bombs on the planet... both in Japan... now this 3rd event. I don't mean the cabal... I mean on a grander scale, karmic perhaps? but I don't understand why.

dumitru, posted on May 14, 2014

David said that the fourth density is the level of love, but negative beings live there because they love themselves and not others. He calls that narcissism. Narcissism is not love of self. Look it up. He also sets up the duality between “service to self” and “service to others”. This is a false duality. Love is inclusive. Self love is essential to serving others with love. As a caregiver for the elderly, we are taught that the caregiver must take care of themselves first so that they are able to care for others. This practical philosophy extends to all loving relationships. Self love and service to others go hand in hand, they are not opposites.

austinhollway, posted on May 16, 2014

when he refers to service to self, he said before it is about manipulating others in order to get what you want. When you are taking care of yourself before you take care of the elderly, due to the fact we are all one and that you are not manipulating others in order to get what you want (health for yourself), you are in fact helping others by helping yourself (The law is one). Just like buddhist monks spend most of their time raising their energy meditating, they are technically not servicing other people by doing some kind of physical labor for them, but they are helping to raise the vibration of the whole Earth, just by sacrificing their time. So, the buddhist monk is in fact helping others because they are helping themselves without any kind of manipulation. The Law is One!

it make my life feel much easier....I always felt different from others now I am starting to understand way..so thank you!!! I am sending you my love!

lng215, posted on May 14, 2014

I am going to write down these golden rules and remind myself to use them. These messages would completely change our world if we all followed them, and we wouldn't need thousands of law makers thinking up new ways to control everyone, because we would all be taking care of one another. What I like about your teachings is that you don't waste time with a bunch of ruffles and feathers,you just get to the point and it is clear and pure. Thank you for that.

longlifeenergy, posted on May 14, 2014

This is an amazing episode. I wish I had heard it before I so exhuberantly shared my "new discoveries" with those who hadn't asked. I agree with the 10% strategy. It helps to figure out how much the person in front of you can handle. If someone is a "newbie", the Jesus method is the winner. He was a master of communicating huge concepts in the most simple manner. And the biggest thing for me about this episode is learning NOT to talk about myself and my own experiences while someone is sharing their personal story with me. I had no clue that talking about myself was imposing on someone else's free will. Thanks David!

meanschat, posted on May 14, 2014

Just watched another one of your wonderful informing episodes #61 of Wisdom Teaching. I have followed you for years on the Internet. For me, the shift happened, but is a spiritual uplift in many areas. Doors of clarity opened that I struggled with for years. I am so pleased to know you and others bringing forth loving compassion understandings. I started wakening in 2002 by the Call of Love convincing me how precious humans are. I quit my job launching my own spirit journey by surprise. 12 years later now with over 300 drawings with writings of work I didn't understand, nor what I was experiencing, your words are helping me to see what I have been given. Boy, that was a run on sentence. :) GaiamTV is a dear blessing from the Universe. Thank you for caring and bringing forth all your experiences, even though I know you have suffered in many ways. You and the others bringing truth by love, knowing you become a target are true heroes and a shining light in a world full of oppressive darkness. You have helped me to recognize that I am not a victim, but a person and soul carrying a banner of Victory. The world has darkness, but there is a higher beauty here also. Now, that I am about to share the work given me from unseen benevolent loving beings, your guidelines are a great welcome to help. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH with great appreciation. Valerie

How do you explain why some people commit acts of evil and inflict pain and suffering on others and other people commit acts of good and kindness?

Are these differences a result of nature or nurture?

I was writing a letter right today to my brother about how my rights had been infringed over the past 3 years etc. bla bla bla. But now I realize how TOO MUCH I have said in it. Listening to this episode was SO RIGHT ON for me I can't even begin to tell you. Thank you for the 10 % rule. I think that would be the golden one for me today! MUCH LOVE your way

newcenturion13, posted on May 14, 2014

Though I made this mistake before watching this series; I think it would be benificial if the 10% idea would be up front. I understand that he's evolving like all of us. A good suggestion would be that the idea is put at first. In case some are late to that thought.

amandaedmunds84, posted on May 14, 2014

What beautifully worded information on free will, feels like innately I know this and when I dont follow it I alway lead back to feeling a sense of wrong :) guess now I know why. Thank you David for your guidance as always its been an absolute pleasure x
