Navigating the Flow Chart of Life

(an expansion to Our Spiritual Path)

At every juncture there’s a decision to be made.  How do I feel today, shall I go this way or that way?

One of, if not the primary principle to our being here is Free Will.  In Spirituality it’s a long held understanding that we’re here taking part in a grand experiment.  To take part in this experiment we don’t remember who we are or the vast knowledge we have so we stumble around in the seemingly darkness.  The challenge is to remember who we are.  To accomplish this we can experience whatever we want in our process of learning.  Hence we are granted Free Will to follow the bread crumbs back to knowing who we are without any repercussions.

In a Divine perspective there is no such thing as a wrong choice.  Each path we take leads to learning and learning is why we’re here.  Everything is about the experience we’ll have. Granted, in hindsight some choices are not what we wanted at the time yet even with that many times those will prove to be valuable or even required in the future.  The perspective of good and bad are also human denoting a judgment of worthwhileness.  The Divine Consciousness which holds unconditional love without any judgment sees those as merely different experiences.

Our journey here is one of deciding what we want to do.  Making plans is wonderful although looking into the future creating a long range plan presents problems when conditions change as they always will.  It’s a challenge in itself to step away from feeling it necessary to make detailed plans allowing our spiritual connection guide us.  After all it’s our Guidance which metaphorically hovers above us and can see what we haven’t yet.  Our Guidance is a resource for those wishing to utilize the service they offer.  Although be forewarned, once you start using you’re Guidance you’ll see the benefits and want more.  Asking to receive assistance from Guidance (it’s Free Will so we must ask) is another step in remembering who we are and it will bring about change, in a good way.  Those changes will continue to grow as long as it’s desired, again it’s Free Will.

Our Spiritual Path, a plan not a contract

(also see Navigating the Flow Chart of Life)

A long misunderstood concept among some is that of our Spiritual Path.  In a linear view to some this has become synonymous with a preset course of action we must take in order to fulfill our objective in life otherwise we’ve failed.  In a spiritual view there is no failure, everything is experience no matter how it turns out.  Failure is a human concept not one the Creative Consciousness observes.

A phrase I was given says a lot about the “I must do this” perception.  “The past is written in stone while the future is written in pencil.”  Thinking our path is something we must do negates our Free Will to change our mind based on new information.  Our Spiritual Path is a general plan of what we have proposed to do based on the existing potentials at the time of our reincarnation.  We are not under any “contract” (another linear misunderstanding negating Free Will) to do anything at all.  We have Free Will to change our minds as often as we decide to.  Rather than a ridged plan think of the Spiritual Path as a flow chart. There are choices to make regularly as to which direction we’ll go and none of them are wrong only different.  Learning will ensue no matter which way we go.  To that end being flexible is a spiritual plus.  It allows us the ability to be where we’re best served to be at any moment.  This takes the Free Will of others into account too.  Someone we would be best served to meet may decide at the last minute to be where we were thinking about going which opens a potential of meeting them.

To say we “must” do something is like saying our path tells us we must take a road trip and drive down a certain road.  That may have looked good and had purpose when the plan was made before we incarnated except years later the funding for the bridge wasn’t approved so it was never built.  Our path says “we must go down that road” so over the cliff we go.  It’s all about potentials, had the bridge been built as was a potential the plan would be valid but without a bridge it calls for a change in our path adjusting for the current prevailing conditions.

Our path is about a plan of intentions, not a fixed one but one which is dynamic with the ability to change as conditions shift.  The only constant in the universe is change.  Flexibility is a must if we intend to change with it.

The Puzzle of Life or Our Mosaic of Life

The concept of our life or incarnation being like a puzzle is well known.  A puzzle has intricate shapes combined with a picture so each piece will only fit at one position to form a predetermined completed picture.

In contrast a Mosaic usually deals with much less complex shapes many times being only one color per piece lending itself to our Free Will so many different colors could or would fit into any one spot.  As Creators where each piece will be placed is our choice to form the picture we want.

As we work through our life encountering each learning opportunity presented us we have choices to make about which tile piece would best fit the situation.  Our Guidance is skillful in maneuvering us to where new pieces are afforded us as learning experience.  The more new experiences we gain the greater our choices are as to which we’ll use.  It is always our free will to learn or not to learn new thoughts.  Working directly with our higher aspects assist us to see potentials which otherwise may not have been seen.

The way we live and the outcome of each incarnation is not preordained in any way.  We have the flexibility of free will in every moment to create what we want or all too often create what we don’t want.  The hardest part is seeing we can create what we want if we’d only change our thinking.

The Spiritual Challenge of Fear

The focus of this writing is to assist in understanding the Challenge of Fear.  Perhaps this will make it easier for these shadows to be seen as illusions thus overcoming them with Light and truth.

Duality as we know it is a hologram containing many illusions, not everything is as it seems.  For most people the illusion of Fear is the big one being more potent than all the rest.  The way spiritual challenges are presented to us few even know when they’re facing a challenge which seems a bit harder to recognize them for what they are.  In this many don’t know why the level of fear is growing in their lives.  The majority of this is due to a person’s focus being directed onto the fear which creates more of what is focused on. Some when finding out about this challenge would rather run from it than face the illusions.  Everything is a choice of Free Will except saying “I’ll pass on that challenge.”  If a challenge isn’t faced and met when presented it will be rescheduled for the next incarnation although the conditions leading to the challenge may continue to the end of the incarnation or until the challenge is completed.  Living under the fear is no way to be, it deeply impacts our lives and the Akash is imprinting with a greater predisposition for fear which will be on the surface when we return in each incarnation.

Why is fear so potent?  Some of this is from cultural backgrounds, some of it is learned from others living in fear while some of this is also contained in our Akash from previous incarnations.  No matter what the source all of it is a misunderstanding of truth which stems from our thinking we’re small powerless creatures which is also part of “giving away our power.”  When we give our power away to fear we lose our Light completely.  Fear is attracted to those with less Light.  When we’re in fear we have no Light to repel fear so we attract even more fear to us.  It’s a hard fact but a Lightworker or anyone else in fear has no Light to work with and may even embody darker energy as well.  If we knew how powerful we are as a part the Creative Consciousness we’d see how humorous it is for us to fear anything.  We are connected to “all that is” which means everything is also a part of us, even the feared darkness is part of us.  Do we fear our little finger?  Our finger is connected to us and it could poke us in the eye when we’re not looking except we’re in charge of where it goes just as we’re actually in control of what we fear if we would only see the truth of it.

This challenge or any other challenge doesn’t have to be faced alone, separation is another Duality illusion.  We’re surrounded at all times by our Guidance, it doesn’t matter if we can hear our Guidance they know what we’re thinking.  Due to our Free Will we must ask them if we’d like their help.  Our Guidance will then start transferring information to us as fast as we can absorb it which will help us understand a greater truth so we can better overcome this challenge or any other.

 

Here are some thoughts which may help give perspective to the illusions.

There’s a reason we’re here

We’re not here on Earth by accident, we’re here by design working in a Divine test of energy to see if we can learn who we are without any help from outside sources before we could destroy ourselves.  Since this is a Divine Test the Creative Consciousness will not allow outside interference of any kind, no giant meteors or invading space aliens.  Visitors are tolerated only if they take a look then leave.  We have Free Will, this test would only stop if “we” end it ourselves, nothing from anywhere in the universe is allowed to interrupt this Divine Test of energy.  The Divine Test is why we have two fused chromosomes out of twenty four resulting in twenty three chromosomes unlike other similar life forms here.  The changes in our DNA wasn’t a natural function of biological evolution.  We’re the ones with Divinity in our DNA and science will never find the “Missing Link,” there isn’t one.

Besides our divine service of being on Earth we’re each here to learn self-empowerment which includes seeing the many illusions of Duality.  We come onto the Earth thinking we’re disconnected and our 3D intellect believes this to be true since there aren’t any signs with flashing lights saying “this way to your Divine connection.”  We must each find that connection reestablishing it as spiritual knowing not just “I understand it to be true.”  This connection to our own higher aspects assists us greatly to put an end to many illusions especially fear.  All that we learn here enriches the understanding of the Creative Consciousness even though it’s believed God knows everything.  Since we have Free Will the one thing which isn’t known for sure is what we’ll do tomorrow.

 

Fear is attracted to those who are afraid

What we fear ranges from death to anything that goes bump in the night, all of which are illusions put here as a learning experience.  Death is something we’ve all done many thousands of time even if we don’t believe in reincarnation.  We’re Divine specialists of incarnated existence taking part in this test of energy on Earth.  We keep coming back for another incarnation to advance the test to the next stage and work with those we love again.

What goes bump in the night is also here to test our understanding and ability to see past the illusions of Duality.  When we know we’re part of the Creator itself what could harm us?  Everything is part of the greater whole or “all that is” so no matter what it is it’s also a part of us too.  Even the feared darkness is part of us.  As Divine Creators we made the darkness out of our own misunderstanding.  We gave it the limited consciousness it has yet most of us run from our own creation.  The darkness has only one weapon against us, fear.  The only thing it can do with fear is scare us so we’ll give away our power as mentioned before.  When we see the truth about this game of fear we understand we’re holding ALL the cards so the game is over, we win.

 

Separation is another illusion

We are never alone, we are loved beyond all measure and as such we’re watched over at all times.  I won’t say we’re “protected” since there really isn’t any need for protection except as a 3D misperception.  Only in the illusions of Duality do we believe we’re alone small and powerless being in need of protection from everything around us.  This thinking presents us with a greater lesson potential by attracting more fear to us.  Once we’ve seen through the illusion of fear the shadows then run from us as our Light expands no longer held back by fear.

 

Fear is a tool of Dark consciousness (and other lesser evolved ways of thinking)

Fear is used daily to control us by governments, social groups, employers, the News media, advertisers and the Dark consciousness, each uses fear to get us to do what they want.  Is it any wonder why fear is so prevalent?  Dark consciousness is by far the most skilled, they’ve had centuries of practice in getting us to respond the way they want.

 

Science is seeing things differently

Some Physicist are thinking our 3D universe is really a hologram.  Astronomers have seen the structure and workings of our galaxy is far too benevolent to be a result of any random chance, they’re calling it “Intelligent Design.”  This is exactly what it is, our universe was skillfully designed for us as a classroom to learn in.  As we expand our consciousness we gain more insight and control over what happens here than most would even believe possible.

 

Overcoming our Fears

The antidote for fear is knowing fear is nothing more than shadows in the darkness.  Fear has no substance or power unless we give it OUR power by fearing it.  We’re NOT small and powerless, rather we are directly connected to the Divine Creator.  It’s very important to know we’re an integral part of the Creator to overcome fear.  Although it isn’t mandatory to have the knowing we’re part of the Creator to overcome fear it is extremely helpful.  Either way we’ll be called upon to hold this knowing as our truth sooner or later if we desire greater growth.

We have more command over everything here on earth than we could ever imagine even while we’re in a 3D body.  We each shape our reality in ways we don’t realize sharing every attribute of the Creator.  We begin accessing those attributes on greater levels as we see past more 3D illusions finding to a greater Knowing which expands our consciousness about the truth of our very existence.

 

Fear inhibits a Greater Awareness

Emotions such as fear, anger and hatred are restrictive energies trapping and isolating those caught in them limiting their perception to only seeing other lower energies.  The greater the level of fear the greater the entrapment becomes.  Those stuck in these lower states of consciousness are unable to see beyond their own situation which also excludes their own Light.  This only compounds the difficulty in finding a solution to fear, anger and hatred while eliminating any feeling of being connected to their own higher consciousness.

 

How to know if we already have a greater connection established? 

This isn’t meant to be anything more than a way to tell if we have a spiritual knowing of our connection to the Creator active.  Once we have this connection we know it rather than think it.  This greater connection changes us to our very spiritual core.  Even though we’re always connected the expanded connection is one of a greater knowing making a big difference to overcoming fear and continued growth.  If we are connected in this greater way we can feel some energy running in us when we ask guidance to give us a hug.  Guidance tells me even those not believing they can feel energy will feel something if only a chill running through them.  With this one experience of being spiritually hugged the connection cannot be denied.  Guidance will hug us as many times as we’d like in order for us to know the connection is there.  If there isn’t any feeling or we’re not sure then perhaps there isn’t the level of connection which was hoped for.  Asking Guidance for assistance to improve a connection is always good, asking opens the door so Guidance is allowed to help us.  Asking Guidance to do something “for us” is a wasted effort.  We’re here to learn how to do things for ourselves which is self-empowerment.  We wouldn’t learn much if everything is done for us.

 

Much like young children seeing scary costumes at Halloween they don’t know the truth about those costumes so there’s fear about what they see.  As they grow wiser the illusions of the costumes are seen.  With this challenge to see the truth about fear we have the opportunity to grow becoming wiser ourselves seeing past the illusions of what seemed to be real.  How many would embrace their fears which hide in the shadows?  It’s only natural to avoid them, yet to see them in a new Light exposes those illusions which have made themselves seem bigger than they truly are and so real.

Guidance

These are a collection of things about Guidance compiled into one place

Guidance?

Guidance is a very common term in spirituality but who or what is guidance?  There are many thoughts on this which range from being very close to not close at all.  All of these are based on our ability to sense and perceive the answers.  The definition I find best suited is that our Guidance being the rest of us which didn’t and couldn’t enter into this three dimensional existence.  We each are a group consciousness of our own created in the image of the Creative Consciousness.  This may sound familiar, “we are made in his image” but not necessarily in the way some may think we are.  God doesn’t have two arms and legs but rather we are a group consciousness patterned after the Creative Consciousness of which we are a part of.

Since we each are our own group we each have our own Guidance although it’s common to receive guidance from any other part of the Creative Consciousness as is called for or we ask for it.

Due to the conditions of our being on Earth working with the energy for our greater collective consciousness we still have Free Will.  As part of this Guidance cannot and will not help or interfere in any way until we ask for help.  Only then is Guidance allowed to help us and only to the extent allowed for by us or what is in the highest good of the Divine Plan.

What Guidance Won’t Say

The most widely held thoughts about Guidance is they’re a source of everything we want to know.  This is true but only to the extent of our experience and understanding.  This is worthy of examination.  No one can conceive of anything beyond our experience or comprehension, in other words “we don’t know what we haven’t learned yet.”  Guidance couldn’t explain an internal combustion engine to a caveman who hadn’t even figured out the wheel yet.  Learning is a step by step process so Guidance will not and would not give us information about anything beyond our perception or we haven’t yet thought of.  This may sound like Guidance is keeping secrets but in truth we learn best by experience and having gone through the process to figure it out.  If Guidance just told us everything we wanted to know about it would diminish our thought processes and ability to learn from our lessons.  At times we may even get some misleading or incomplete information on a subject which is designed to challenge us to look deeper.  At other times we won’t be corrected in our misunderstandings and allowed to go on believing it to be true until we see the higher truth for ourselves.

Guidance loves us too much to cheat us out of our experiences and challenges of finding out for ourselves.  That said, if we have an insight we can very often gain more detailed information about it from guidance as we probe a greater understanding of our insight.  Even then we’re not just being given information, we’re going through the process of thinking it out using intuition receiving confirmation or we’re being asked to revisit our thinking.

The more we probe the unknown “mysteries” on the other side of the veil the more we understand how things really work so we can unlearn the misperceptions we’ve been taught were the truth.  (this is also known as clearing filters)

If you play Chess with Guidance

Each time we journey here for a new expression of physical life we each have a basic purpose and plan of what we intend to accomplish.  When the incarnation is over what is yet to be completed is placed on the list for the next incarnation.  We also take part in larger plans which connect directly to our personal plan.  When Divine consciousness develops a plan you’d better know it’s complete with every possible contingency covered in the fullest detail and know we’re part of the larger plan.

So why then would anyone not want to listen to guidance and allow them to assist us to pilot our lives knowing full well that our guidance knows the plan and can see around every corner before we even get there?  This is a good question which deserves contemplation.

I think one concern is in letting go of what we believe is our control of our life.  In truth the control we have is very different than what we think it is.  We control our reality by how and what we think which includes staying out of drama and judgment of others while learning self-love and forgiveness.  Learning these do more to change what happens in our lives than most would think.  We also have control from our “Free Will” but maybe not as much as we would like past choices about what’s for lunch.  We always have free will to stop for gas now at the last gas station for miles or do it later but this could have consequences we don’t want to experience.  We’re preoccupied about planning for our retirement or just in paying the bills every month.  Letting go is at the very least a “leap of faith” allowing guidance to suggest the direction which would serve our life’s path best.  After all this is why we have guidance here in the first place.  We’re not put here to “go it alone” but to find the rest of us and listen to the wise council.

When we’ve had the chance to get a quick look at part of a Divine plan it’s amazing in its complexity.  These plans have been compared to a tapestry many times and correctly so.  Pulling on a thread in one place will cause movement in other threads somewhere else.  That is a good analogy of how a change in one event shifts potentials in others.  To put this into context of daily life it would be like planning to be somewhere, we’ll say it’s an event at which unknowingly we’d meet someone we should meet and they decided not to be there.  If that meeting was important to the life’s plan it would be rescheduled to a secondary contingency.  The Divine plans are full of such secondary and back-up plans just in case we’re not in the flow with our plan in that moment.

Another way guidance will work to keep us on track is in giving us a reason to do something which isn’t the real reason but is one we can rationalize as a good idea.  This has been seen so many times and is sometimes called “doing the right thing for the wrong reason,” guidance gave us a good reason (even if we didn’t know it was guidance) so we’d go alone with the program only to see later there really was another reason which we may not have gone along with even though it was in our highest good.

Following Guidance

We can get to the other side of the river using the bridge or we can swim the river, the choice is ours to make. Guidance may have an entirely different plan we didn’t see and we won’t know about it unless we ask.

Being In-Service

Guidance has an open door policy.  It’s our door that’s open since they’re multidimensional and don’t have doors but we’re asked to be open at any time to serve as asked.  This could be sending energy to an event or being awake to get an important phone call for help.  This is the ultimate in being a “team” player.  We are asked to become One and work together in all ways.

The Chains of Our Illusion

Buddha-Perception and PerspectiveThis 3D world is one of illusion, seldom is anything really what it seems to be.  Our reality is more like an elaborate stage show with a complex script written to teach those in attendance.  Many miss the point of the play to see only the drama of the actors taking part in the sub-plots.  All of what we see presented to us is a metaphor, for this is how we are most commonly communicated with from the higher vibrating realms.  The trick in this then becomes knowing these are metaphors and not meant to be taken literally which is many time the case.

We have Free Will and we are our own keepers.  We hold ourselves in an illusion of our own making.  What these illusions are is completely up to us.  We can create a wonderful world to be in or create a place of suffering.  This is Free Will!  We have the ability to see past what we’ve created or to remain imprisoned within it seeing only the drama of the situation.  This is Free Will!  No one did anything to us we did not ask for as part of our lessons.  The catch is to see no one else is to blame for the situations we are in and take full responsibility for what has happened.  Just as we are fully capable of creating the bars of our own prison we are just as capable of removing them creating a life of happiness and abundance.  It’s our choice as to how we use our Free Will.  This is the starting point for Self-empowerment, seeing we have the ability to create then directing it wisely to create what we want rather than more of what we don’t want.

What We Focus On We Create, Manifestation 101

We are the Masters of our journey, as such we’re granted Free Will to plot our course for this adventure of physical expression.  Throughout our life / lives we’re presented with distractions to our focus.  Like all distractions they absorb our attention diverting us from the goals we’ve set and / or the Life’s Lessons we’ve decided to learn.  With few exceptions we seem to place our focus on those things we find troublesome rather than our desires.  When we focus on problems we receive more of those problems.  To those new to this concept it may sound ridicules, getting more problems just by thinking about them but this has been seen many times before.  This is the way our lessons are set-up, we learn from the outcome although at least in this case the outcome is seldom equated with the action bringing it about.

There’s an aspect of our consciousness which listens to everything we say and think, everything.  A major responsibility of this consciousness is to aligning our reality with our thoughts.  So if we think “I never have enough money” this consciousness understands that as our desire setting out to make it our reality.  The more we think a thought the higher up on the to-do list it goes.  This aspect of our consciousness has some limits.  It knows what we say but doesn’t understand about “I was just kidding when I said that.”  It listens to us literally without any analysis knowing little about how the rest of the world reacts with us.  It only works to bring what we focus on into our reality the best it can.

Holding a focus on our desires enables those desires to happen in the appropriate timing. If we keep coming back to rethink them, the more we focus on them the greater the potential becomes of manifesting them.  I know, it’s a bummer we have to wait but this is the Divine plan in action.  A prerequisite of manifestation is having the correct conditions for fulfilment in place which is also known as synchronicity.  Synchronicity is when the conditions for manifesting a desire are aligned then it’s ready to occur.  This applies to all manifestation except spontaneous manifestation.  Spontaneous manifestation is a very advanced skill of Masters or those very close to Mastery.

We co-create / manifest every day since we create what we focus on.  The question is, do we really want to focus on what we’ve created?  Or, do we want to create what we really desire instead?  This is a chance to review our thoughts and perhaps drop some counterproductive old habits of focusing on our problems since we have help manifesting our thoughts.  Our thinking has the capability of trapping us in a reality we’d rather not be in or taking us to where we’d rather be.

This is one of our many lessons in Free Will.  We have an aspect of our consciousness which is just happy to help us learn to create although it’s completely up to us what that creation looks like.  Manifestation takes time as does changing old habits.  When is a good time to start?
