As Christmas approaches and the year draws to a close, much is happening for all humans at a level that is far below their conscious awareness, and this is bringing into their normal conscious awareness discomfort, unsettling thoughts and ideas, and much confusion. For a very long time people have been accustomed to burying or denying extremely painful experiences that they have undergone in order to carry on with their lives and the commitments that they have taken on. It has been very generally accepted that after painful events have occurred it is best to forget about them and move on with life – you have a song: Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again, which very well describes that belief. It works, for a while, and it is useful, but eventually the feelings of pain, bitterness, resentment, and suffering have to be honored, thanked, forgiven, and released, or buried more deeply and totally denied, which takes enormous amounts of your energy. And as the majority of people make the latter choice, these past events or experiences then, naturally, have a very marked effect on the way they live their lives, with many eventually seeking relief through psychotherapy.
What is happening now for so many is that all their buried and denied feelings are rising into awareness to be released, as they must be for your awakening to happen, and most cannot understand where all this “stuff” is coming from or how they should deal with it. Those of you who are intending to be on your spiritual paths, and who attend seminars and workshops and read channeled messages like this one, are on Earth to assist in the awakening process, and from your human perspective it is indeed a mighty task. But, of course, you are never alone, you have limitless assistance from those in the spiritual realms on whom you may call for help at any time. The thing is that you often forget to call!
This why your daily visits to your holy inner sanctuaries are so important. When you relax there fully, even if only for a few minutes with the intent to be only loving whatever arises, you are giving permission to those in the spiritual realms, who are with you constantly wanting only to support you, to infuse you with the Love for which you all yearn, and which is your true nature. This divine Light, this Love is always within you, but It will not intrude or attempt to control or direct you. It offers you loving guidance which is very clear, but frequently your egos want either for you to use it for personal gain, or not hear or dismiss it. Even the most highly evolved humans have egos that attempt to seek personal gain. You are all aware of ones who have abused their positions of trust to manipulate and control those who saw them as highly evolved and very wise spiritual beings deserving of their service.
Egos are a part or aspect of your human nature that seem to be separate from you – the one following the spiritual path – but you do need them to enable you to operate in the world you perceive through your human form, and you will also have to integrate them completely into your true nature, where they truly belong and from which it appears that they became separated. When you experience inner conflict it is because your egos are desperately seeking your undivided attention, and they will suggest to you all sorts of ways that you can use to gain advantage over others who they will suggest are attempting to do the same to you. It is very difficult for humans to be graciously and unconditionally giving of themselves or of their possessions without there being some kind of pay off that is sought in return. It can be anything from a large financial payoff to just a simple grateful acknowledgment, but that underlying need is seldom absent.
Love, however, is a total absence of need because It is and haseverything! When you succeed in opening yourselves to the Love residing within you, allowing it to fill your hearts, you will instantly be free of needs. If you have ever fallen in love, you have probably briefly experienced that beautiful state, but, because of the limitations you imposed on yourselves by choosing to become human, it never lasts.
Your egos always want more. It is your egos that create your dissatisfactions with your lives by constantly comparing your situation with that of someone else, suggesting that that other is more . . . . successful, attractive, accomplished, wealthier, happier, loved. The thing is that you are who you are, by choice, and envying anyone else for any reason at all is a total waste of your time and energy. You all know people who have struggled enormously, often very selfishly, to become wealthy and yet, despite all the accoutrements and accessories they have gathered to themselves, they remain unhappy and disillusioned with life.
Attempting to model yourselves on someone else is to have lost your way. Who you are is who you most wisely and carefully chose to be, and the path forward is always by way of total self-acceptance. When you make the choice to accept your self fully, just as you are without conditions or negative self-judgments, the need to compare yourself to others dissolves, allowing you to just be, and then to do what attracts you by allowing your creative abilities, and you all have them because they were given to you at the moment of your creation, to grow and develop as you intended when you chose to incarnate.
You are all creators! God, Source, Mother/Father/God, the Supreme Intelligence, the aware and Conscious Universe – whatever word or phrase you personally prefer is perfect for you – created you and at that moment gave you everything It had – Love, All – so that of course includes enormous creative abilities and the potential to use them as you chose. You have all heard the phrase: You create your own reality. It has become considerably overused and abused over the years, nevertheless, it is true. You each have your own totally personal perception of life as a human, no one is the same, for each one of you it is individual and unique – there are no copies, no one who exists, has ever existed, or will exist in the future is or could be the same as you. The reality you experience as a human is the one you have created for yourself and continue to create in every moment of your human existence.
When your perception changes, due to experience, new information, maturity etc., it is because you are creating that new perception. As humans many of you think or assume that you were born without any input or choice in the matter, and from that assumption you build your lives – I’m ugly, I’m beautiful, I’m smart, I’m stupid, I’m unlovable, I’m worthless, I can achieve anything – to fit those assumptions that you have made about yourselves. You have forgotten that you are creators with infinite potential.
Many of you do change your self-perception over the years, some for the better and some for the worse, but it is generally within the fairly limited confines of the original basic perception that you developed during your childhood due to family, cultural, ethnic, religious and political influences present in your environment as you grew up.
There have always been people who have moved well beyond that original conditioning and have created amazing human lives for themselves, and over the last two or three hundred years the percentage of humans doing this has been increasing, and today the growth in that percentage is accelerating rapidly. More and more of you are realizing that you can create, that you are creators, and that is causing enormous and essential changes in perceptions and behaviors to occur throughout all human cultures and ethnicities. The world is changing, and it is you, collectively, who are doing this.
This is what your awakening is all about, namely changing your perceptions and your beliefs about what is achievable, and then working to make it happen. When you do this your own personal awakening becomes inevitable. Of course doubts and anxieties will arise, they are aspects of being human, but by attending purposefully to your spiritual growth – choosing to remember that you are Love incarnate – you can dispel them and continue to move forward gracefully and beautifully, just as you intended when you planned your present human life path prior to incarnating.
Your daily visit(s) to your holy inner sanctuary to reconnect with the Light, the Love that resides there always, awaiting your invitation to commune with you, strengthens your energy field, empowering you to be and demonstrate the Love that you are as you go about your daily lives. The warmth of the loving embrace that you experience when you go within is also felt by the Light, the Love, because you join there in Oneness. It wants you to accept and engage with Its embrace because it deepens that unbreakable relationship you have with your divine Source.
Your loving brother, Jesus.
