I want you to do an exercise with me today. A mental exercise. I want you to imagine that you are Mark Foley. Or, at least, your version of Mark Foley.
I want you to imagine that your deepest, darkest secret, the thing you are most ashamed of, has just been revealed to all the world on television and in newspapers everywhere. What would that secret be? What is the most shameful thing you have ever done? I want you to imagine that you have been exposed, that your secret and your shame have been uncovered, and that there is not a place in the world, not one place on the entire planet, where you can get away from it.
Think about it now.
No, really think about it.
What IS the most shameful thing you have ever done?
Have you ever done anything shameful?
While September had several cosmic events that supported a move forward, as mentioned in the last energy alert, October will be the month of cementing them in. When energy shifts and movements occur, they are simply opportunities of support and guidance. and again, in this way, we can choose to take them or not. And many times we may not even be in a space to move with them.
Each and every one of us is unique and different, while at the same time we are as one. Our spiritual evolutionary process involves on-going supports in the form of energy shifts. We can take the current ride, or simply wait for the next opportunity. We may not all be ready at the same time, therefore some of us are in one place while others may be in another. If we choose to wait, the nudges will increase in frequency until we are ready and more of a match for them. But eventually, even though some of us are here while others are there, we will all end up in the same space.
Today, I would like you to think of yourself as a gem uncovered in the earth. At first you appear to be just a formless rock. There are only a few places where your glory can shine out and be seen. But you are still what you are, a gem, a treasure, a stone of great value.
And as you live your life, you remove this covering of stone and begin to shine out. As you go on further in life, you start to carve facets and glow out with your talents, your skills, your wisdom, all the things you have learned during this lifetime.
And as you gain more experience in life, you carve ever more facets, so that you become quite complex and also quite dazzling, when the light catches you just so.
Every experience marks another step on your spiritual path. Whether it is easy or challenging it is a call to you to do your inside work, to look at how your thoughts created this reality. You are all moving into the ability to instantly manifest what you think and speak about and the Universe instantly responds to your energy. If you are feeling powerless you will create a reality that reflects your belief that you are not powerful. If your experiences are positive and joyful, they also reflect what you have created and are not an accident. Your inside work has to do with how you create both joy and pain in your reality and how you will move forward on your path.
Today’s message is in response to a reader’s question:
“You say that when we are truly aligned, we will wish for nothing, but simply accept what is. I understand that, but sometimes it sounds passive to me. What about having goals, and working towards them? What about passion, and wanting to pursue certain things in life? I understand that we cannot be attached to our passions, but I think they can be beautiful and healthy. And it does mean that on certain levels, we still have wishes, desires and goals.”
When we speak of acceptance in a spiritual sense, we are speaking of acceptance of the present moment. In the present moment, the only response must be deep understanding and acceptance, for acceptance in this sense means knowledge, means knowingness, means this and simply this: in this moment, things are as they are.
My dear friends, we love you all so very much. Trust dear ones that you are loved so deeply and dearly that you can never fail God or your angels. Many of you put so much pressure on yourselves to perform, achieve, take over your goals and dreams that you forget to ask for help. You forget to ask God to take over your life, release you from struggle and pain, and bless you with miracles.
The energies and events of September greatly supported us in arriving at a New space. October will be a month of cementing things in, of making these New spaces more concrete and secure, and even of finally bringing in all the pieces of these grand New roles we are now embodying. And as always, the energies we find ourselves in only serve as windows of opportunity. We need not take them if we are not yet ready or in alignment. And know as well, that if an opportunity is not taken now, another one will arrive when personal alignments are more intact. This is the beauty of the marriage between choice and energy. A new train will always continue to arrive at your trainstop.
Today I would talk to you about the levels of energy and existence.
It is one of your tasks in this lifetime to utilize this time here to lift the frequency of the energy here from that of fear to that of love. This is an awesome task and well worth doing. It involves millions of people and is most critical. Begin, of course, with yourself, meditating and lifting yourself out of the vibrations of darkness and fear and shining out with love and light. Remember that you are a light, and that light always drives away darkness. Light does not wage war to conquer darkness. Light shines and darkness has no choice but to retreat.
Beloved masters, you cannot even begin to imagine what magnificent Beings you are, and the miraculous gift that was bestowed upon you when the Supreme Creator sent forth the command to the infinite facets of Itself to “Go forth and create new worlds without end in my name.” You have experienced the ebb and flow of Creation many times beyond your comprehension over the past aeons. You went forth in great anticipation upon receiving each new assignment, even as you eagerly looked forward to returning to your point of embarkation, or the “Seat of Power” from which you departed. An integral part of your mission has always been to earn the gift of life that was conferred upon you as you went forth to perfect your skills as a cocreator god of Light.
There are situations where there is no logical explanation for another's behavior. In these situations you must find closure through acceptance of things that you do not understand, rather than continue in the situation while you wait for an answer that makes sense to you. Sometimes the lesson involves learning to leave in order to lessen your own pain and suffering. Waiting for the other person to acknowledge your worthiness, contribution or value will only prolong your suffering and you may never receive the response you desire. Sometimes there is no reason available to you and you must simply walk away.
