You’ve Grasped the Brass Ring of You

Dear Ones,

This is a time of rejoicing. Not in the 3D sense that you, your friends and family know you have achieved a long-held goal. But an internal joy of knowing you have achieved something you did not think possible before entering earth this lifetime.

You have claimed yourself in all your glory.

Perhaps you do not feel it quite yet. Perhaps there is even an ongoing sense of, “is that all there is?” But know in every segment and cell of your being that you have grasped the brass ring of you.

Maybe you feel little or nothing. Maybe you even feel hollow. Just as was true sometimes when you achieved something in your 3D life. You worked diligently to complete that 3D task – only to discover in the first moments of completion a hollow feeling.

You have done it. You have claimed yourself.

What does that statement mean in your daily life? Even though you continue to roll down your hill to your promised land, your hill has many fewer obstacles. Your roll has returned to more joy.

Perhaps you wonder why your roll of joy was interrupted with rock and other debris the past few weeks. Such was so because you requested it.

That last statement might appear to be just another carrot encouraging you to continue your journey to new you. Such is not the case. Because so many are exhausted by the journey, you pleaded with yourself and the Universes to see results more quickly. And so you are and so you will.

Of course, now you demand instant gratification for your claiming of you. Such is not necessarily possible for your theme of the next few days is rest and process. After which, most of you will realize that your life is very different. Just as was true in 3D following college graduation, accepting a new job, birthing a child or committing to another person.

There were times in those aforementioned 3D major events, you were not sure you liked changes you created that reconfigured your life as you knew it.

And so it is that you may not initially enjoy your CEO/president role responsibilities. A role that may feel awkward at first. You are not used to being the “go to” person at this level on earth. But then, the same feelings of awe/fear would be true if you were promoted in a 3D job from worker bee to CEO or president.

Your new role is not the easiest transition for you must shift your patterns, perceptions and beliefs. And so you will. Once you wrap your thoughts around new you.

Think of the lifestyle changes required to welcome a newborn into your world. At first, everything feels awkward. You worry that your loving actions are wrong. Yet, somehow your baby survives, even thrives. So it is for new you.

You have the skills, knowledge and joy to be CEO/president of you. Allow yourself to know and accept that. Many of you are clamoring for specific directions – a how-to manual for this transition piece. There is no such manual, nor will there ever be.

You, as a group, are now creating the transition manual for those who wish to follow. A group task you are completing lovingly and joyfully.

But the instructions for new you are so fluid, so dynamic no manual is adequate – other than trusting yourself to know you will complete this role easily and effortlessly because you have done so in the past – in a different form. You have not always been a segment of your totality. Most of you have been the small voice within segments that you now call your inner-being. At other times, you have played the dominant/CEO role in places other than earth. This is merely the first time you are the CEO/president of your earth being.

So it is you have more knowledge and skills than you now believe.

You have no need to be frightened, concerned or to complete any lesson or task before fulfilling the CEO role you have stepped into. Allow yourself to rest. Do not fret about your limitations or seeming lack of skills. Float into new you with all the changes such requires.

You have completed the task of learning to love yourself even though many of you believe such could not be completed as easily as it was. Most likely, you believe you have to ‘whip yourself into shape’ somehow by studying more; pleading with your angels or higher self; or isolating yourself. All of which are nice to help you believe you have jumped through enough hoops to deserve your new role. But are no different from believing you must work in a child-related field for years before conceiving a child. You can do so, but prior work experience in a child-related field is not a conception requirement.

You will adapt to your new being whether you study, meditate, pray or not.

You dared expedite your new role with energies you claimed for yourself the past few weeks. Your inner-being trusted, even encouraged you to expedite your new role because your inner-being knows the entirety of you. As will be true for you once you process all that has happened.

Allow yourself to be. Allow yourself to play. Knowing you completed a very large task you did not necessarily anticipate completing six months ago.

Know that your roll down your hill has just become smoother, more rapid and more fun.

Think in terms of a professor allowing you to graduate from college earlier than anticipated if you complete a very complex paper. Throughout the writing of that paper, you question your skills – even the wisdom of writing it. But once the paper is complete and accepted, you allow yourself to bask in the wisdom of shortening your schooling.

So it is for you now – even though you have not yet realized that such is so. You will – once you allow yourself to rest and process what you have accomplished in a very short time. So be it. Amen

I have always enjoyed your posts Brenda. They have always reassured me when I have not felt quite 'right'... however...I have got to the point where I just do not have the will to even try to enjoy being this 'new' version It just doesn't fit..nothing around me or within makes any sense at all.... 3D life was actually uncomplicated and straight forward.. I always knew where I stood..with people and life. Now I just feel on my own and that I don't quite fit anywhere... it's really disconcerting and trying to find any good in it is almost impossible. Sorry for being so negative.. but it is as it is. Yes... hollow is right.

Dear Anni,
You don't have to be a new you. Listen to yourself and shift to the place that feels most right. Maybe you'll want to return to your shift someday - maybe not.

I negated most New Age/New Earth concepts for nearly 20 years after channeling my book, A Glimpse of Your Future,. All the while clearing 3D issues of the dark night of my soul. In early 2000 something, it felt right to return - for me. I needed that downtime - now I don't.

There are no rules, no shoulds, no have tos. Just what's best for you - and only you know that.
Love and Blessings,

I love this message, read it with tears. I realize how much work we've done, especially the last few months. With only these messages and websites to guide us and keep us going. Not the easiest part, but we do/did it. We're still here! Changing old 3D beliefs that controlled us for so long. It's not an easy task with everyone else around you trying to keep these beliefs alive. But we do/did. We have every reason to celebrate! The last few days I'm clearing and cleaning my house. I need to release a lot of energy, I feel very restless and anxious after I wake up in the morning. I've had this before and in the past I tried to get rid of this feeling with medication and therapy. I believed I needed to calm down and be normal. Recently I realized that maybe this energy just wants to be USED! Changing this belief caused a panic attack. Anyway, I decided to give it a try and now I have the cleanest house ever and more important: I'm actually having fun and it feels so good :) Dear Brenda, thank you ? Each new message opens a new part of the playground :) Love and blessings to all of you

Oh Brenda this message is so cool, thank you. 'You have completed the task of learning to love yourself' How beautiful beautiful beautiful! Each time I experienced my joy, the wild bird hovering above my outstretched hand, the ocean wave crashing over me as I danced and yelled and laughed, the incredible beauty and joy of my husband as he laughed and yelled with me. Each time I experienced these things, the 'brainwashing' tried to get control again, and I would wake up the next moment in misery. It made no sense. But that is the task of learning to love yourself. Learning to hear the quiet voice that is your self, amongst the roaring of all the voices that try to tell you who you are. This is the most amazing journey!

Thank you to your wonderful self and all those who help create the space for this journey to happen!

Lots of love and light from Debs :)

Hi Debs,
Have to admit that when I channeled - You have completed the task of learning to love yourself - I thought, really?? Then I remembered how so many channels, including me, have emphasized easy. And so it is. Cool or what!!

I love the image of you and your husband laughing, dancing and yelling for joy. Hello new me in New World!!

This is indeed an amazing journey. And isn't it great that we're making that journey together and with so many others via Spirit Library/the Internet!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Hi Pam,
We do have so many reasons to celebrate. Dance, chill, laugh, clean. We've done it.

My great need the past few days is to be out in our sunny, warm courtyard reading a fun book. My husband has been on the cleaning cupboard frenzy. Fun!

And I feel the same - each of my channels and those of others seems to open yet another exciting piece of this amazing transition. We're definitely explorers at heart.. Aren't you glad we're doing it together? Thank you Internet/Spirit Library!!!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,


Keep updated with Spirit Library
