Greetings dear readers. Emotions of both sadness and celebration presently reflect world energy do to people’s inability to return to what is familiar.
Know that there is a purpose to all that is presently going on. Circumstances are forcing many to reassess how they have been living their lives, what they believe is true or important, and if there may be a “better” way. Much that up to now has been simply accepted, is beginning to be more closely examined from a higher perspective.
Life as you have known it cannot return to exactly as it previously was simply because the energy maintaining and sustaining many of its three dimensional creations are dissolving by virtue of the increasing presence of high resonating energy–as collective consciousness evolves, so do its material expressions. Always remember-consciousness is the substance of form.
World consciousness has reached a place of readiness for earth’s next step in the Divine Plan of all eventually awakening to their Oneness with Source. It is a step but not yet the fullness. Some will experience it more than others and it will take a few more lifetimes for some.
Allow the process dear ones, allow the process. The process may not be or even resemble what you had had in mind, but trust that personally and globally a new phase of the Divine plan is unfolding, one unaffected by three dimensional thinking, plotting, planning, or scheming.
Keep your consciousness filled with the knowledge that every individual regardless of how ignorant of truth he/she may be, is in reality (not ego based humanhood) an expression of God for nothing else exists from which they could be made.
As increasingly truth becomes the substance of your thoughts and actions it becomes your state of consciousness where without thought you are adding increasingly more Light energy to collective consciousness where it will at some point begin to manifest in the world as higher and better ways of living. This is how things will change. It has begun.
Many of you are about to celebrate the holiday called Thanksgiving, a day set aside for expressing gratitude for the things in your life that you are thankful for. Gratitude is much more than a polite response to something received. Gratitude is a facet of Love and as such is in and of the Divine. Love and gratitude are two ends of the same stick.
At some point in every person’s spiritual journey they must cease looking to a person, business, job, family, group, or friend etc., for gratitude even if deserved, because only God has gratitude to give. Thanksgiving is the perfect occasion for examining your beliefs about gratitude. “Have I been looking and expecting gratitude from outside of myself, from my job, my family, a friend, or even the random stranger I may have helped?”.
Know that no person in and of themselves has love or gratitude to give and so seeking it from a person, even one you would expect it from, can only result in disappointment and a sense of separation from your true self. Only God has love and gratitude to give, and therefore these things must be sought where they exist, from within, from the fullness of your own Divinity.
When you look for love and gratitude within where the fullness of all that is real exists, it will flow in ways and from those you may have never expected it because you have opened the door to your sacred storehouse. Love and gratitude frequently does not come from those you would naturally expect, hope, or want it from, but if you seek it where it exists, it will manifest.
The error of the human condition is and always has been in looking to persons or conditions for what only God has to give. Gratitude, just as with all God qualities, flows through individuals, but never from them.
Example: If you limit your finances to being personal, they will be limited and reflect duality, but once you attain a consciousness of abundance as being ever present, infinite, and never personal because it is a facet of the unlimited Divine Consciousness that you are, it can flow in ways you may least expect.
You are spiritually ready to understand and accept that no person in and of themselves has love, gratitude, peace, joy, happiness, understanding, abundance, appreciation, etc to give you. These are God qualities and to seek them outside of where they exist simply perpetuates the illusory human condition.
Express gratitude often, allowing it to flow freely in every moment. Don’t apologize for donating only one penny if that penny represents your highest and best. Simply let it flow out in the realization that that penny is not coming from a limited amount that can be depleted, but rather is an expression of an unlimited Source within you.
As you pay bills, shop, or donate remember that it is flowing through you from an infinite well that never runs dry and not from a personal limited source regardless of how it may seem.
Let Thanksgiving during these times of stress, confusion, and change be a time for rejoicing in the fact that you have attained a state of consciousness able to recognize the underlying reality of all things in the material world.
“My car may be a junker but in reality is a three-dimensional expression of Omnipresence.” “That person is acting like a real jerk, but I know his essence is Divine.” The spiritually evolved know that that every person, condition, thing, or life form is a spiritual reality being interpreted materially according to the consciousness of the individual and/or collective.
This is absolute truth but a person is only able to experience it as they attain the consciousness of it. Attaining a consciousness of the absolute is what constitutes the spiritual evolutionary journey of every individual whether or not they know or accept it. None will or ever can be dropped from or quit the Divine plan for like it or not, God is the essence of every individual.
Gratitude for something received is the common belief about gratitude, but you reading these messages are ready to bring gratitude to a higher level through understanding that love and gratitude are God qualities and no man or woman in and of themselves has them to give. This realization will remove you from the painful experiences of expecting and not receiving love or gratitude from another.
Our wish for all who celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday is that they begin to experience the true love and gratitude they carry within. For those who do not celebrate this holiday, the message is the same.
We are the Arcturian Group.
