The Fifth Stage of Life

In this message the Group takes us on a three month joourney.  At the end of our last book, Spiritual Psychology we shared with readers what we believed will be the next step in human evolution.  Here the Group wastes no time on showing us exactly what that means for each of us on a very personal basis.  

Big GROUP hugs

Greetings from Home.

From Destination to Journey Consciousness

We join you this day at your request, not to tell you which way to turn or to tell you what you are doing right or wrong, but to hold the mirror in front of you so that you may see who you truly are. Do you re-member who you are? We do. We have come for the specific purpose of helping you see what you came to do and to show you where you are on that journey. Now you are asking, “How can I step forward into higher vibrations and how can I be on purpose as an intentional creator?” Ahh, but it does not end there, for many of you have found your purpose. Many of you have found your passion or at least part of it. Keep in mind that it is not about moving into your passion; it is moving in the direction of your passion, for moving from destination consciousness and into journey consciousness is your natural evolution and why we are here. In that way we can even say that all of life is about learning to enjoy the ride.

It might interest you to know that you are all going to the same place. You are coming Home again…but not before you create Home on Earth. That is why you came here in the first place. We have been doing our best to give you suggestions to let you see yourself from a different perspective so that you can re-member pieces that you forgot. Today, we will take that a step further. Practical magic is our passion. All the information that the Keeper puts out, all the books, all the seminars, all the DVDs that he loves to play with are simply ideas in the ethers. The ideas have no meaning whatsoever until someone takes something and uses it in a practical application to make their life a little better. That is practical magic.

A New Perspective on the Seven Stages of Life

This day we offer you one more piece of practical magic, yet what we offer you today will go on beyond our message for you at this moment. It will stretch over a period of three months. First let us share with you a vision of yourself from the perspective of the spirit looking at the human. We have given much of the information that the Keeper calls Spiritual Psychology, but let us share with you the next step in that evolution. There are seven stages of life. You go through each one incrementally, on purpose, to pick up specific mastery opportunities. These stages are not defined by years, but by your vibrational evolution.Humans are evolving. You are no longer the lower vibrational people you used to be only a short time ago. You are now reaching for higher truth to support higher vibrations. As you evolve from one level to the next, you start grasping new ideas; you start seeing yourself in a different way. We wish to offer you a suggestion this day about how to see yourself over the next three months. It is a game, but then all of life is a game, so we offer you a new game and a new way to view the last three stages of your life. The fifth, sixth and seventh stages of life can now be viewed in a new timeline. As you evolve, there will not be any new stages added. Instead, you will start over again in the same physicality. You will be re-birthed within the same physiology; the connection to spirit will have a new ignition and you will be able to move through another lifetime in the same physical body.

Enlightened Seeker to Enlightened Knower

The process of re-birthing and moving into the next level can begin today. Let us share with you how you can look at the next three stages of your lives. In the fifth stage of maturity, things start changing for you. You stop looking for your truth outside of yourself and start accepting it inside of yourself for the first time. Instead of being the seeker, you become the “know-er”. The evolution of that fifth stage of life is the opportunity for you to understand that you are God, that you are a creator, and that you have a responsibility to All That Is to use those powers of creation.

Yes, we know. It is difficult for you to comprehend that. We know that your egos get in the way and you try to hold them off and it becomes difficult for you to see who you are. We also know that there is a difficulty for you in understanding the difference between when to create and when to allow. We will offer you a very simple solution for the question, although it is all semantics anyway, for even a state of being is actually a creation. Let us offer you a simple suggestion. When to create and when to allow is answered by a single question: are you happy where you are? If you are, then be. If you are not, then dare to choose again and create a different reality. We tell you simply that all change leads to something better. Yes, we know. Humans do not like change. They resist it with great effort; however, all change will lead you into evolution.

The Fifth Stage Question: What Is Really Important?

At a point in your evolution you begin to grasp truth on a soul level. It is then that you start to direct your own change and to activate your own changes and creations. What we offer now is an opportunity to put that into practice. It is then that you become creators taking responsibility for your own happiness and passion. It is then that you become of the highest use to the Universe that you can be. That is where the magic lies. The fifth stage of life becomes about finding that truth within yourselves. The question asked of everyone in the fifth stage of life is: What is really important?The seekers begin seeking in the third stage of life. Finding the truth within and becoming an enlightened knower does not generally happen until the fifth stage of life. Finding that connection point, that ability to create, that opportunity for you to take responsibility for your own creations and holding that little sense of peace is what is before you this day. We ask you to consider setting your intentions to step into that stage of life with us now, no matter where you are. The seven stages of life are the general course each soul takes in a journey of evolution within each lifetime. What we are suggesting now is to intentionally step through the last three stages together with us over the next three months. This exercise will offer advanced souls possibilities to experience intentional creation.

Starting Over Without Dying

We will offer some very simple suggestions, but before we do, let us take you down the road, for you love walking backward in time. Let us share what we will speak about for the next three months. Each stage of life has a specific purpose for the evolution of the soul. It is not always done in the order we have specified, nor are all the stages always completed in each lifetime. They are simply the general life guideline your spirit has laid out for your evolution within each lifetime. As we take you through the last three stages of life, one every month, it may be helpful to know what will happen after that journey. How is this going to evolve and where does it end? It is very simple. It does not end; you simply start over at the beginning. Stage one is the planning stage where most contracts are made before the incarnation. Can you imagine what it would be like to plan your next incarnation while still remaining in physical form?We are going to offer you opportunities to see how this can apply in your daily lives now, no matter what stage of life you are in currently. As we lead you through the applications of incorporating those pieces, it will lead you to re-write your game—to start over and to re-birth and to blossom with a new bloom. It will allow you opportunities to move through the process of evolution and what you have been calling ascension. This day we talk to you about the level of maturity, about reaching an opportunity where you can find the essence of your being and what is really important.

Determining What Is Important

One of the suggestions we will offer you is to pretend that everything has been taken from you. If your family is important, move it away for just a moment. If your job is important and helps to define you, move it away for just a moment. If your possessions are what you have clung to so desperately, move them away for just a moment. What is left? That is the question we ask you to bring yourself to during the next 30 days, for moving through the fifth stage of life will open the door for all the remainder to go forward and for you to step into your own evolutionary process this day. So that it is not necessary to physically remove these items, we ask that you energetically remove your attachment to all the things you have deemed as important and release them with love. Then and only then can you really determine what is really important from a soul level.We love games. We have been watching yours with great intensity and playing whenever possible. We love to enter your game when you invite us in. We are doing so now, but it is your game. We are here as the mirror to keep you from forgetting who you really are. We are here to pick you up off the ground every once in a while and re-mind you of your magnificence. We are here to blow the dust away so that you may see your own light and understand the effect you have on others and your responsibility to create. That is the role of the angels—to reflect the magnificence of humans. We ask you this day to send yourself forward into the fifth stage of life, to bring yourself forward and pretend that you are here in a situation in your life where everything must be re-evaluated. Everything that you have must be looked at for its true importance in your life.

When the Stuff You Own, Owns You

It was not long ago that the Keeper and the Keeper's Keeper moved. They had been in one place for twenty-seven years. He called himself a collector and she called him a packrat. He collected everything that meant something for “someday he might use that item.” We tell you, there comes a time when your stuff owns you, and we ask you to look at that now. We ask you to look not only at possessions but also at relationships and all things that you believe are important to you. When you release the need for all the things outside of you, then you may enjoy even more than what you had in the first place, for only then do you understand its true place in your life. That is the process that opens the door, and it is usually defined in the fifth stage of life.That sets up the opportunity for you to move into the sixth stage of life, where you may experience a true Lemurian existence. Each one of you goes through it as you become childlike. We will speak of that next month, for it is an important part of your process as human beings evolving back into the soul and releasing the body. The evolutionary path is that you come in as a spirit to jump into a body and go through all this time on Earth in a process to lose that same body. In the fifth stage we are trying only to help you remember what is really important and who you really are.

For Thirty Days…Evaluate Everything

During the next thirty days, with everything that you encounter, we ask you to look at its true relevance to your spirit and find out what is really important. It does not mean that you need to release it. It does not mean that you need to give everything away. It does not mean you need to fill two dumpsters like the Keeper did. What it means is that you are changing your reality by shifting your own perception. Find out what is important to you by releasing all attachment and you will begin to understand what is important to your spirit as spoken through your higher self.The connection to your higher self is much closer than you think. Many of your own life decisions are not made by the lower conscious mind but are made in conjunction with the higher self. The death process is not a conscious decision in most instances. This and many other important decisions are made from a junction of the higher and lower selves. When that connection is in place, your own higher self relieves you of the need to carry the body. The fifth stage of life is the first step in that direction. That is usually the conclusion of life. Now, it is not about leaving. It is returning to spirit. It is not about re-membering Home or going there. It is about creating Home where you now are. It is about learning how to live, learning how to be in your passion now. That is the expression of God that you have the capacity for that no one else has.Even we, the angels in heaven cannot do some of the most wondrous things that can be accomplished only behind the veil. We cannot hug another person. That is reserved for you. We cannot touch another life. We cannot ignite another soul through looking into their eyes and helping them re-member by way of a physical glance who they are. You can, and that is why you are here—to work with yourself and ignite your own light and turn around and look into the eyes of another person. To do that, we ask you to look at your life and experience everything that comes into your life over the next thirty days and see what is really important to you. The interesting part is that it doesn't make any difference what you decide. It is not the outcome of the decision that your soul is looking for. It is simply the experience of reviewing. It is not the destination; it is the journey.

Merlin's Path

Step backward in time and shift your reality, for as you do, you become like Merlin and walk backward in time. Your vision is faced toward your past. If you are very present, your consciousness will see where you are, but you do not see your future, so, in fact, you are always walking backward in time. When we tell you to walk backward in time intentionally, it means turning around and walking into your future. That is what you are doing now in the next thirty days. More capabilities are available now than ever before on the planet because of your collective rise in vibration, because of the energy that you share. Set that into motion this day and watch the magic unfold. Dare to look around you at everything that happens and everything that enters your life—at every person you meet, at every thing that you grasp that has had importance in your life—and simply evaluate its true meaning and its true usefulness to your soul. We will walk you through these last three stages of life very effectively and very quickly so that you may begin a new planning session—the first stage of life. Purposely write your script for what you have called the ascension.

Dear ones, you are there for each other. Reach out often. Hold your power. Do not give it to us. Do not look to us for all your answers. Do not listen to every word we speak. Take only the pieces that resonate with your heart, for you are the ones who must hold the power. Discern what is right for you and create magic. Pull it from everywhere you can find and watch as your world begins to change for the better. If you find that this means nothing more than you walking with peace of mind and a smile on your face, we ask you to consider that perhaps this may be what you had in mind when you came into this planet.

It is with the greatest of honor that we sit with you and offer reminders from Home. We have waited for eons for the opportunity to do it. If we can hold the mirror, if we can brush the dust away so you can get a glimpse of yourself then we have done our job and are in our passion. We leave you with these simple reminders: treat each other with the greatest of respect. Nurture one another every opportunity you can, for you are actually nurturing yourself. And re-member that it is a game; play well together.
