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.

We Create the Reality We Live In

We are powerful in ways we wouldn’t even imagine.  We have resources beyond our understanding and we use them without even knowing we do.  This is exactly where we can get ourselves into places we’d rather not go.  When we do find ourselves in unpleasant situations it must have been someone or something else pushing us into that.

When we start a new incarnation we leave the rule book behind starting fresh figuring it out all over again.  In the process we learn many bits of information some of which are incorrect or misperceptions making it even harder to see past those to understand some very important concepts which control everything around us such as our personal reality.

We each create our own reality and modify it daily.  This is a simple statement with far reaching implications.  If we spend our time trying to manifest a new car we may not even know we’ve manifested the problems we have with the old one by thinking “I don’t think it’ll get me to work today” or “I know it’ll break down soon.”

Everyone has things happen in our lives we didn’t like or just seemed to have no rhyme or reason, some of us experience these often.  It’s easier to believe we’re the victims of Dark Forces conspiring against us than it is to take full responsibility for what we’ve created for ourselves.

 

How it Works;

We are each a group consciousness all by ourselves.  We have far too many aspects of us to count but each knows about the rest of us.  We’re (our consciousness here) the ones that haven’t gotten the memo yet.  Some of our multidimensional aspects take part in listening to everything we say or think, I mean everything.  They do their best to make those thoughts into our reality.  The more we think a thought the higher it goes on the list to be created since we’re focusing on it a lot we must really what our lives to be that way.  Even more important to know is they don’t know when we’re just kidding or we’re just complaining.  To them “what we think or say is what we really want to happen.”

I hope this will shock some who read this and enlighten others as it’s so important to know.  For those trapped in the daily dramatic story of their lives they’re only making it more so every time they retell or rethink it.  The way out is to STOP thinking about what we DON’T WANT.  When we reverse our old ways focusing our thinking on what we do want our lives will begin to change which shifts everything around us.

The Pool of Discernment and the Light of Truth

It’s another early morning, hours earlier than I would have liked when I was given a vision and instructed to write about it, now.  (LOL, Guidance can be like that when we’re in-service)

 

Discernment is one of many spiritual test we all face in one incarnation or another.  Once having learned this the accomplishment is stored in our Akash and we’re equipped with Discernment thereafter.  I’ve seen many facing this test since the end of 2012, it’s one of the important test to face for those not having met this challenge before.

The Light of Truth is the tool we use to discern with, it’s also been called the Sword of Truth.  We arrive here equipped with the Light of Truth as standard equipment yet the instruction manual may not have been included.  Sometimes the fact we even have such a tool escapes us.  Learning to use this important tool becomes a challenge in itself and it’s unique to each of us.

On to the vision.

We have a figure (the collective us) standing knee deep in a pool of water. (discernment)  Around us are dark shapes and figures, some remain still while others are circling around the pool.  Some are silent but some are making sounds to distract us getting our attention.  These dark shapes and figures all have names, some of which are; drama, greed, mistrust, deception, anger, jealousy, envoy, hate, fear and so on.  Notice these are all three dimensional in nature and each is an illusion (trust me, they’re only illusions) calling for our attention to distract us from finding our spiritual nature.

As we stand in this pool of Discernment we notice in our right hand we hold a staff.  At the tip of this staff is a crystalline sphere.  (the word crystalline is a common metaphor used by Spirit to denote something which holds memory and or energy)  The object of this vision is to inform us we have the tools to see the truth.

The Light of Truth dispels all illusions.  As we hold our staff up high, through our pure intension we turn the Light of Truth on.  As it illuminates all around us those specters of illusion fade away.  Three dimensional illusions cannot exist in the Light of Truth.  That which remains (when using the Light of Truth has been mastered) is therefore our truth.

 

The concept of using Truth is very important especially now as we transition into a new age while those wanting to keep the Dark energies resist this change.  This is why the test of Discernment has become more common in the last few years and will continue to be more important in the coming years.

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.

Belief is Everything

What we believe dictates how we think plus how “our version of reality” reacts to us as we interact with others.  What we don’t believe is possible changes nothing for the world around us but impacts us greatly.  The “don’t believes” limit what we could achieve which otherwise would be possible for us.  The “believe” and “don’t believe” list create blockages becoming part our individual version of reality stacking the deck in a game of life.  We are the creators of our reality individually and collectively.  We’re solely responsible for what we create and we’re called to exist in our creation until such time we see a higher truth of what we’ve created.

It’s been mentioned in a number of other posts we create what we focus our thoughts on.  Most of us at some time or another have seen someone else and we think “they’re so lucky to . . . “, in all actuality those we’re seeing as being lucky are actually those thinking differently than the norm.  Many of them are focused for the most part on positive thought rather than drama, I can’t, I wish I could or any other “reason” we could think of for not being or doing what we want.  It’s all about what/how we think.  It’s a shock when we see how we’ve self-sabotaged our own life.  Not only now, how many times in other incarnations have we done the same thing, it’s all in the Akash affecting us daily just waiting to be found and cleaned up.

Believe it or not truth has nothing to do with belief, if it did we wouldn’t create our own blockages from false perceptions we hold as true.  Since we believe what we know is the truth this may well surprise many if not most reading this.  Humanity on the whole has a belief there’s a singular truth for everything, you either have it or you’re wrong.  This one misperception is responsible for a few wars and battles around the world throughout the centuries especially when religion is involved.  At best truth is “our truth” which may or may not apply to anyone else.  We are all unique with different experience having learned different lessons.  Most of us have heard the term a “higher truth,” there’s always a greater truth than we’re prepared to understand.  As our understanding grows we see higher truths than those we held as being true before.

Spiritual Challenges on our path to Mastery

Preface;

While writing about Mastery I found myself including Spiritual Challenges in it.  I asked Guidance and it was suggested I write two pieces since I’d find enough to write about both.  In the process of writing on Spiritual Challenges I found myself including Mastery even though I was focused to separate these two.  The jokes on me.  Learning is done best by direct experience rather than being told about it.  This is how Guidance works, they knew what was going to happen but they just waited for me to see it too.  As with much/most/all of spirituality separating it into pieces is a linear human perspective while spirituality is a multidimensional concept making it all one package without individual parts.  Everything is a learning experience.

 

Spiritual Challenges to becoming a Master

We are here to learn, in this learning there comes many opportunities to demonstrate our progress thus far.  Some spiritual challenges are relatively a breeze, at other times these could be a very trying experience.  Much like taking a test in school the greater understanding we have of the subject matter the easier moving past the test becomes.

There are many steps to be taken on our path to Mastery, one of these many steps is Self-empowerment which leads to a great number of other lessons.  Two others which many seem to be facing since 2012 is “claiming our power” and “conquering fear.”  Each have their own chapters, claiming our power is a large part of conquering fear.  Self-empowerment is also involved in both of these.  The interaction of these three also points out the circular aspect of multidimensional concepts where everything is connected as opposed to linear perspective of separation.  There are many challenges although these three seem to be faced more often at this time of spiritual growth.

Self-empowerment is a large step forward in human spiritual terms.  We start taking responsibility for ourselves learning to handle the conditions of life without asking the Angels to do everything for us.  They’re here to help but not in the way most seem to expect.  The Angels/Guidance are here to teach us not give us the answers.  They’re not here to do everything for us rather to help us learn to do it ourselves.  Self-empowerment is a corner stone of our growth.  Without this we’re unable to claim our power or conquer the fears.  Fear and being powerless or victimhood are misperceptions seeming real so we remain small and powerless at the mercy of the dark consciousness on earth.  Of course the dark consciousness is all too happy to take the power we surrender to them assisting us to be afraid of them, they’ve had millennia to practice.  When we’re in fear of anything our light is extinguished completely making us a tempting target for lower vibrational consciousness to play with, even disease likes those without Light.

Claiming our power is something which through the ages few have truly seen the power we possess.  The Masters knew our Divine-self as did a limited number of others.  A large part of humanity looks at the Masters as being Superhuman not those who have learned the truth of our Divine existence becoming fully human in the process.  If we don’t claim this power as our right and natural state of being then we give it to others such as the dark consciousness remaining as a servant rather than being the Masters we are. (or could be depending on if we’re looking at this from 3D or multiD)  This is where we’re called to know in our heart (not the intellect) we are an inseparable part of the Creative Consciousness being loved beyond measure, watched over endlessly and held safe in every moment.  As part of the Creative Consciousness we carry the full abilities of every other Divine Being.  We are ONE together not one apart from others.  Being separate is a 3D view of duality which is one of many illusions in duality.  Self-empowerment is a very key understanding in claiming our power.  We’re all unique, this spiritual challenge reflects that also in how we’re presented with the puzzle of claiming our power leaving the illusion of being powerless behind us.  The challenge of claiming our power also has sub-challenges if you want to call them that.  We may also be asked to understand drama or victimhood just to name two of these.  When we know these are illusions in our hearts we see we’re greater than we could have imagined although in a humble way not from the ego since these truths are empowering our Divine wisdom.

Conquering Fear goes hand in hand with self-empowerment and claiming our power, these are closely related and are interrelated not independent of each other.  Once we’ve become empowered and have claimed our true power we can conquer the fears we have.  Until then we’ve not yet understood our true nature.  Knowing these aids us in seeing we have all we need to overcome the shadows of any darkness.  Truth be known the dark doesn’t stand a chance with a Light-worker who knows the truth of their own existence.  There’s no more need for protection or shields of any kind once we know the truth of our Divine power.  Our own Light is all we could want, darkness cannot exist in the Light.  If we’re surrounded by dark energy we don’t have the Light we thought we did.

There are many challenges to meet such as trust, self-balancing, relationships, anger, understanding, compassion, awareness of energy, inner peace and the list goes on for a long ways.  It’s not uncommon for any of these to take multiple incarnations to achieve.  All of these are attributes of Mastery although the three challenges having been focused on are a core set bringing about a great shift in consciousness paving the way for the other understanding to follow.

 

Mastery of Spiritual Challenges

The concept of Mastery is a human one of completing our lessons reaching the upper limits of understanding available to us as an incarnate consciousness.  From the perspective of a timeless Divine consciousness Mastery is a state of completion which could never be reached since we’re always learning something new.  For the sake of simplicity we’ll use the human concept of Mastery.

Mastery is an individual accomplishment yet we don’t do it alone but then we’re never alone anyway.  Even if we think we’re alone we’re watched and followed 24/7 by our guidance being surround in numbers greater than we could count yet most of us ignore them completely. We’re much more than meets the eye, those we call our guides are some of the other parts of our own consciousness remaining just beyond “normal” perception.  There are still many more aspects of us which stayed on the other side of the veil as well.  Each of us is a group consciousness containing many parts just like the Creative Consciousness thus the term “made in his image” wasn’t about arms and legs.  Only a limited amount of us is actually here in duality taking part in this learning experience.  Those who know of their guidance have the greatest chance to utilize the help which they offer but our guidance requires to be asked to help before they can enter our lives in a more active role.  To re-visit “an individual accomplishment” for a moment, we’re all unique and this is yet another place where each of our journeys is different from everyone else.  We have the same understanding to acquire although the where, how and when is completely up to us.  Think of it as a spiritual scavenger hunt, everyone is free to take their list finding those items wherever they will.  The list is actually very long, so long it takes a great many incarnations to accumulate these items.  The good part is when we end an incarnation those items / understandings we’ve collected are automatically saved in our Akash.  We usually don’t even remember what we were doing in a past life, if we do, this is an opportunity for our intuition to lead us in the search again.  As we progress along our path we become more aware of our past and what we’re going to accomplish in our current incarnation until we know that from a few years after our birth.

There isn’t a final test we face here on Earth to get our Masters, once we’ve learned what we’re called to know these accomplishments are complete.   We then understand beyond (normal) human comprehension granting us great freedom to go beyond the perceived limits of three dimensional physics.  Humanity believes physics is the be-all, end-all of rules governing how everything works.  When we achieve Mastery we then understand in terms of multidimensionality rather than three dimensional existence finding those perceived limits of physics to also be an illusions of duality.

Everything a Master does spiritually is by pure intension, a Master doesn’t have or need any external tools.  We are complete as we are with everything we need inside of us already.  The intension of a Master is powered by greater understanding / wisdom in a state of complete connection with all that is.
