One of the highlights of my week here in Sacramento is ready the latest edition of the Sacramento News and Review, a weekly, free alternative newspaper, every Thursday. One of my favorite pages is ‘Streetalk’ where someone from the paper asks various people the same question—kind of a ‘man on the street’ piece.
For the May 26th edition, the question asked was, “How did you spend your childhood summers?” While the answers were fairly ordinary, the thing that stood out was the occupation of the first interviewee, David Tella. David’s listed occupation was ‘frequency holder’. Now being the Neanderthal Midwesterner that I am, I wasn’t quite sure what this occupation involved. So I consulted two infallible sources, Google/the internet and Patricia G. Howell. I hit double paydirt.
A ‘frequency holder’, according to Eckhart Tolle, a writer and public speaker on spirituality and metaphysics, is “In past ages, they would probably have been called contemplatives. There is no place for them, it seems, in our contemporary civilization. On the arising new earth, however, their role is just as vital as that of the creators, the doers, the reformers. Their function is to anchor the frequency of the new consciousness on the planet. I call them frequency-holders. They are here to generate consciousness through the activities of daily life, through their interactions as well as through ‘just being.'”
This is great, I thought, to myself, because it means that my other go-to source, Patricia G. Howell, who is a devoted fan of Tolle, will be able to explain to me how this guy(David Tella) can make a living as a ‘frequency holder’. No such luck, folks! After asking Patricia about frequency holding and before I could ask her myself, she asked me, “How can this guy make a living being a frequency holder, and how can I do it?”
After much research on the World-wide Web, I am no closer to finding out the answer to how one can make a living as a frequency holder, and what does it pay? Forbes Magazine, the Economist, the Wall Street Journal—no help; the US Bureau of Labor Statistics—nada!; dozens of Google searches—nothing.
