We have wonderful
news for you. You all have the opportunity to merge with your
Higher Self, and so there can be a change in your experience
of communication. When you are more merged, there isn't
a sense of the information/communication coming from a "higher"
plane, or from some place outside of you. So all that you're
experiencing is that what used to be communication is now one
The next step is to be conscious
of being much more merged with your Higher Self-being
the Higher Self in embodiment here. Descension,
you see, is the easier, more elegant way to do it--just letting
this happen rather than each individual physical life trying
to "pull" itself out of this density. In the recent
events of your lives, in what you have learned about yourselves,
what you have released, actually quite efficiently has "made
room," if you will, for your Higher Self to come in and
do more merging with you.
Virtually all of your answers,
and all of your operations, if you will, will be coming more
from this source in the future. But for the moment, we would
say that nothing is written in stone. Very sensitive people,
especially when they're going through hard times, think that
that's going to be IT forever. Understand that each choice is
a vehicle for you to support yourself in a way, and do certain
work for a time, but that at any given point you may make a transition
into doing other work.
Many of you recently have
completed the cycle of "going out into the trenches."
You all have worked very hard, and now you will begin to feel
much more fulfilled. You will love your work as long as your
Ego doesn't come in and start analyzing: "Well, this isn't
really what I want to do," and so on. What is happening
is that in awakening personally to the light, each individual
on a mission here is coming closer and closer to a conscious
understanding of the work that they actually came here to do.
So there's a time during which there is great conflict (and our
Jyoti has experienced this) between personal agenda and the more
ego based notion of role, versus the soul-level understanding
of mission, on which your entire embodiment is based.
You are at the threshold
of making a shift between your spiritual work as you perceive
it (and how that feels to you) and of really committing to the
high level of work that you came here to do. And so you will
feel the tug of your personality self saying, "But I want
this and I want that." Understand that the
whole purpose of your embodiment and the soul growth that you
have desired to allow here depend on moving out of the smaller
personality oriented issues and into the commitment to that work.
In many ways, this is what is holding Ascension back, if you
understand. Although the light quotient is phenomenal, and many
have awakened, you are shifting into the next cycle or phase
as we have just described
As so many others you may
not yet be able to identify the part of you that is the Higher
Self communication separate from the part that is the ego. Like
so many others, you may be asking: "Who Am I?" because
now you are becoming very aware of the merging of time. For moments
you can be in two or three places at once; you may be having
visions of landscapes and cities, and you may also be having
visions of moments in past lives. So your question reamains:
"Who am I?" Our answer is: YOU ARE GOD. The "Who
Am I?" identity part is the personality part.
We hear so much talk about
the so-called ego. "Ego"
merely means "I am" in the Latin. Cogito ergo sum:
"I think; therefore I am." That, of course, is the
illusion of 3rd-dimensional consciousness. "I am;
therefore I think" is actually more appropriate, but "Who
am I?" is actually a question of the personality. We use
this word to show how your Self or Soul is expressed in 3rd-dimensional
existence, and if you wanted to think of this on a higher level,
personality might be interpreted, for example, as an Ascended
The equivalent of personality
as expressed in Ascended Masters and other "self-realized"
human beings might appropriately be described as a quality
of energy--a resonance with a quality or vibration
in the upper realms. For example, Quan Yin as former "Chohan
of the 7th Ray" (or Violet Ray), has a very different resonance
than does St. Germain "on the surface." We think of
St. Germain as more of a personality because he is still very
much "in touch" with embodiment on the earth. This
makes him such a great emissary in his Ascension work with you.
"Chohan of the 7th Ray" does not limit, or delimit,
the characteristics of the Ascended Master who holds that so-called
responsibility. The resonance of Quan Yin, for example, would
be grace, mercy, compassion--very sweet energy. The resonance
of St. Germain is much more playful. There is much more a sense
of mischievousness in addition to the seriousness and adept-ness
with which he does his work.
of your Soul, your Higher Self, and the other members of your
"vertical soul hierarchy" will resonate with you: artistic
expression, freedom, fighting for the underdog. Whatever is your
intrinsic nature is, expressed or not, is going to be resonant
all the way "up" your soul hierarchy and probably with
your higher guidance as well. In merging with your Higher Self,
your guidance, and so forth (those who are related to you; not
merely guides on assignment), these elements of your nature become
more and more amplified.
It may seem to you as if
suddenly there is more intensity of those qualities that are
your nature, and so the Ego will rise to the occasion. In other
words, there is more intensity of your pure nature--who
you are as a Soul. Then your Ego will intensify to counteract
that, and not vice-versa. That's how you separate what's
going on with the Ego personality expression from what's going
on with your Soul, so any sense of resistance is always going
to be Ego based. Also, feelings of non-love you experience are
not of your Higher Self. That is another way you can discern
what's going on. When you go into meditation now, what is happening
is that you are merely becoming conscious of a merging
that is already taking place.
We are hearing people say
that they keep falling asleep when they "try" to meditate.
This is an opportunity for many calibrations to take place. Understand
that when you seek to go into meditation you are really coming
into that place of God Self that all share. When you go "within"
you have Atma; when you go "outside" yourself
you have Brahma. Brahma and Atma are one. In your
falling asleep what is happening is that your intention is actually
being answered, but if you are fighting falling asleep you would
actually be circumventing the setup and merging of certain synaptic
pathways necessary while you're still in the physical body. It
is like having anesthesia while you're undergoing microsurgery,
and in the very act of meditating you are seeking this union
and actually allowing it.
Now, what may really be bothering
you is that because you have fallen asleep, you don't consciously
remember that union. However, what is important on the
Soul level is that the union (or YOGA, which means re-union)
has taken place. The more you allow it, the more you begin
to live it. The other important thing is that you are
meditating. No time in meditation is ever "wasted,"
you see, for meditation is your primary pipeline, if you will,
to form a bridge to your Higher Self and throughout the vast
network that consciousness represents.
As always, we wish you great
joy of the light, and we are Melora!
