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.
