Beloved and holy and only Child of our heavenly Father, Child of the one Source, Child of Light, divine. That is who you are. Take it deeply within the consciousness and contemplate what that means. I am the one known as Jeshua ben Joseph, Jesus you have called me, and it is in great joy that I come to abide with you this evening in your timing as you have chosen once again to call me forth.
Great joy always to abide with you in this manner. Great joy always to abide with you everywhere you go, everywhere you speak with other ones, everywhere you are in service to the Father/Mother/God/All That Is. Always in joy, because that is your divine birthright. As we have spoken many times, that is not the message of the world.
The world will speak to you of challenges, of duality, of things where you have to choose. But truly, your divine nature is one of joy, one of love, one of peace and harmony, and once in awhile you touch that space. I have seen you in your meditative times; you are transported away from all of the concerns of the world into a space most healing, into a space that allows you to know, "This is who and what I am." And it feels good, does it not? It feels like home. I have heard all of you speak from time to time, "I want to go home."
As a small child, sometimes you did not feel that this was home. You knew where the physical dwelling place was and the biological parents, but that quite often did not feel like home. As you grew older and taller, you were still searching for home. You have found friends with whom you feel in resonance, and you feel that you are at home, at ease with them, but that is still not quite the home that the heart is seeking. And so you have tried various rituals, various modalities to reach that space of home, of love, of self-acceptance, of knowing who and what you divinely are. When you reach that space, there is great rejoicing-on your part and on my part and all of the other unseen and sometimes seen friends and masters.
Each time in your meditative times when you feel yourself to be whole, there is a choir of angels that begins to sing, because you are truly the vibration of the universe. You are-as we have explained it in physical terms-the Light and love of the Father/Mother/God/All That Is. But you are vibration; vibration of the one Thought come into form, as you have decreed that you will have the experience of form; not only the human form-that is what you are doing now-but you have over eons of time experimented with other kinds of form.
What does it feel like to be the four-footed one, the small four- footed one, the tall four-footed one? How does it feel to be the bird? How does it feel to be the eagle that soars very high or the hawk that has such keen eyesight? How does it feel to be the great orca whale that swims in the ocean? You have been all of these things. So I say unto you, from time to time allow your imagination-and that is what it will feel like at first-to take you to a place of Oneness with all life forms. Have you ever been a tree? Of course. Have you ever in human form hugged a tree? Yes. And has the tree hugged you back? Of course. There is great vibratory love and beingness with all of nature.
So in times when you feel like you are walking alone-and I know this happens from time to time, that separated ego speaks out and says, "I am alone. I have friends, but they are busy; they are doing other things, and I don't want to bother them. And I'm alone. I don't know where to go or what to do-at times like that, allow yourself in your imagination to be One with nature, even with a blade of grass or with the most beautiful flowering plants that are coming alive.
Allow yourself to contemplate, "How does it feel to be a tulip? What color? What vibratory color of the tulip do I want to be? And allow yourself to move into a space that truly you knew as the very young child to be One with nature. Now, as you have been noticing, there are many changes that are happening in your world. There is much that we spoke of in other times that is coming to light.
We have spoken to you throughout the years that that which has been swept under the carpet and ones felt they could keep out of sight is now coming to light. The carpet is being lifted up, and a lot of the doings are coming out to be seen and to be judged as to whether they honor all of equality or not.
So there is much that is in flux, in change in your world right now, much that seems to be of chaos from time to time. And you watch it as beholder in varying degrees, because sometimes you are right in there with the feeling of, "Oh, good, I'm glad that's coming to light," or "I don't know. Perhaps I should feel a bit of Oneness with this person, even though they have thought that they could act in separation. Perhaps I need to extend love to this one."
So you have varying degrees of how you react to your news, your news media that brings you all of the fresh disasters. Every day you have breaking news, and we have spoken of this in other times; what does it break? It breaks your peace of mind, because it allows you to look at more of the upheaval.
But, again, as we have spoken in the past, when you have a seed planted, the seed cannot grow and become the plant and then the blossom and the fruit until it does a bit of upheaval of the soil and breaks through. That is what you are seeing now: many of the seeds that have been planted even in other lifetimes are coming through the soil, upheaving all of the soil around it, and there are ones who are trying to hold onto what has been in the past and finding that they cannot do that, because things are changing so rapidly.
For many of you, here and within the sound of my voice, you are finding changes in the workplace. Some of you have found yourself being freed to find new employment. Some of you are being retired so that you can go and find new employment.
So you have found in your individual life there is much of change and much of questioning. "What do I want to do? Where do I belong? What talents do I have? Who is going to save me?" I have heard you when you have cried out to me, and you have wanted someone to come in and save you and make it right for you. You have cried out to the Father/Mother either on this level or to me and my Mother, Mother Mary, "Please nurture me, take care of me, show me the way to go, where to go. Put your angel wings around me."
Most often, as you have experienced, the biological parents have their own issues, their own problems, their challenges that they are going through, and they are not always as sympathetic as you would like them to be. One of the acknowledgments that you come to when you know yourself to be the expression of the one Creator, know yourself to be divine, is that you recognize that everyone who is experiencing human life is in their own sight an individual and they are dealing with, especially in this time, this reality, completion with issues that they did not feel were complete in other lifetimes.
And so they have issues that come up, and they may not be the most sympathetic to your issues. They may not want to hear your issues. They may feel that it is an overload for them, because they are dealing with their own challenges. But you go to them because you feel as the small child that has the scrape on the knee, "I want a Band-Aid on my knee." And sometimes, because they have a broken heart, they cannot give you the Band-Aid, and you have to give it to yourself. It is a most wonderful time that you are living in now, because everything is changing. You have prayed for change. You have prayed for heaven on Earth, and in order to have heaven, you have to make room for the new, because up until now-in recorded history, anyway, and even some of the pre-history-this reality has not been of heaven substance. It has been more of duality. So you have prayed that, "I want to live in heaven on Earth. I want to bring heaven to Earth."
All of you at the soul level have signed up on that sign-up sheet that said, "Who will volunteer to bring heaven to Earth? and you said, "I will, I will put my name on there." And so you have come in this lifetime to do that by varying methods, varying experiences, each one of you bringing your unique combination of talents and desires and self-images to experience and express the divinity of the One. So I say unto you, it is a most blessed time, even though separated ego is going to be screaming at you from time to time that this does not feel good. But that is the job of separated ego, to point out to you when you have come into the place of believing yourself to be separate, believing yourself to be vulnerable, believing yourself to be powerless.
In those moments there are things that you can do to bring yourself back to the place of Oneness, one of the things being what we have just spoken of, imagining yourself to be One with any part of nature that you want, and you choose different ones from time to time. Imagining yourself to be the dandelion-most wonderful name-how would it feel to be the dandelion? Most beautiful sunshine that is blooming and is called a weed, but truly it is a flower; but because it grows so profusely, you have termed it a weed and you try to get rid of it. But it has the last laugh, because it has so many little seedlings that it puts up into the air that you never get rid of it. It comes back.
Allow yourself to play with, "How does that feel to be a dandelion and to know my power, that truly others who walk on the two feet and think that they have control over their most wonderful manicured lawns, they cannot have power over me, because I am going to let the wind take my seedlings everywhere." A dandelion does not ever feel that it can be vanquished. It cannot. So allow yourself to play with, "How would that feel?" When I studied in what is now known as Britain with the Druid masters, there were techniques that they shared with me to allow me to know once again, truly know at a very deep level within me, not just the intellectual; that I had known from the Essene school in copying the written scrolls of ancient wisdom.
I knew much of the mystical teachings. But when I went to study with the Druids, it was a different approach, as you have now in this day and time. You have different approaches to healing, different approaches to divinity, different approaches to self-image and how to reach that place of feeling whole within yourself and as yourself.
They spoke to me of four elements of earth, wind, fire, and water. Now, you have that repeated with your First Nation, the Native American culture in this geographical part of the world. They also have a common heritage with the Druids from before there was a separation. So if you are looking to know connection with Self-capital "S"-allow yourself to play with the earth, the soil. Go out and dig in the soil and get it right under the fingernails.
Now, I know that my beloved friend and teacher, the one you know as Judith, does not like that feeling. When she goes out to do gardening, which is rare, she puts on gloves. But I say unto you, the best way to get into your own divine Oneness and your own divine nature is to be One with it and get your hands right into the soil and feel its texture. Bring it up to the nose. How does it smell? What is its aroma? Different places of different soil are going to have different aroma.
You will discover different aspects of yourself in the soil and different places of the soil. Put the hand into the soil and allow yourself to feel that you are growing as a plant does from the soil. Stay there long enough in the soil to feel yourself grounded, rooted in the soil; both hands; feet, as well, if you want to. Allow yourself to become One in your knowing with the earth, with Mother Earth as the soil.
Then on another level allow yourself to know Oneness with Mother Earth as the light being which she is, because as you play in the soil, there is going to come to you a radiance from the soil. From that connection as you plant your hand into the soil, you are going to know a radiance, a vibratory feeling...if you allow the hand to stay there long enough. Don't just dip it in and out. Put it in, let it stay there.
Yes, I know you're going to be late for your employment. Okay, do it after the employment then. In your evening you have daylight; you can do it in the evening. Or early in the morning. Get up a few moments earlier and go out even before sunrise. If you want to, you can do it. Yes, you can. And you can tell my beloved friend and teacher, the one you know as Judith, my message to her. She will probably say, "Okay," and then put it up on the shelf somewhere.
Earth, wind. If ever you are feeling that you are so surrounded by the world, you are in this cocoon that the world is giving you and you feel completely hemmed in by all of the issues of the world and everything is going wrong and you are being bombarded from every aspect of the world, all of the things that you have to do, you must do, all of the things they said to you, all of the things where there has been injustice to you where they have not honored the holy Child of you, and you are dealing with all of this energy that is feeling most chaotic, allow yourself to find a place where the wind is blowing, preferably a strong wind, and allow it to cleanse you, to blow all of those feathers of problems off of you, right down to the self of you, to the naked self of you, feathers gone, off with the wind. If it is a still day and there is not much wind blowing, I know that many of you, if not all, have what is called the electrical device known as the fan. So you can plug in the fan, even if it is wintertime, and stand in front of it and allow it to blow all of those problems away from you.
Now, when I studied with the Druids, there was not a problem of finding wind, because we were on the seacoast and there was always a wind blowing in from the sea. But if you have problem finding a good wind blowing and you need a strong one, turn on the electrical fan, put it on high, and stand in front of it until you feel that you have been cleansed and all of the old issues have gone, all of the old feathers. And while you are doing that, remember to breathe. Breathe of that wind, of the air, especially if you are out on the beach, especially if you are out in nature. But you can do it indoors with the fan, as well. Remember to take the deep breath.
Fire. Most powerful cleansing agent. I would suggest that you start off with a wee bit of fire. Do not go out immediately and set fire to your dwelling place and say, "Oh, I needed a big bonfire." Allow yourself to start with the candle and the candle flame. Gaze at the flame. Feel yourself totally immersed in that light to the point where you do not see anything else but the flame of the candle.
Know yourself to be One with the candle flame, the little flickering flame, and yet the potential of great power, which is you. Sometimes you feel like a little flickering flame that you can't really...I'm not even sure I can keep on burning. But your potential is great, and once you catch fire, there is very little that can stop you. Allow yourself to gaze into the flame of the candle and feel yourself to be One.
For a moment or so, forget all of that which has been bothering you. Know yourself to be that light, for you are creating that light even as you see it. That is how powerful you are.
We spoke last time when we met in this way that it is truly a miracle that you do when you step out and you know that when you put the foot down there is going to be the density that will support you. We spoke that truly it is your belief that makes the density that you can walk upon the firmament. And we asked, "Was it firm before that?" And truly, it was not, before your belief which knew that it was going to be firm when you put the foot down. Before that, it was molecules of light, molecules of light dancing around. But your belief, your trust, your expectancy was that it would be solid, and so therefore you walk upon Mother Earth, which is a light being-she is the same as you, of light-she works in cooperation with you so that you can have the human experience.
That is how powerful you are as creators and how powerful your belief is, that when you put the foot down you don't go right through it, right through whatever you are thinking is going to be solid, but you have the belief it is going to be solid and you are going to walk out and every step you take, you're going to be on firm ground; strong belief.
So allow yourself to start with fire as the candle flame, a very powerful meditative technique. Now, all of these that I am mentioning to you are tools for bringing you to yourSelf-capital "S"-because you have forgotten yourSelf. You have been caught up for many lifetimes in what seemed to be necessary, what the peers, the friends, the family said to you was reality and what you had to do to survive in that reality. And you have seen yourself to be separate and vulnerable and weak. So you have put up defenses to save yourself.
There is even the religious/philosophical thought that still runs through many of your organizations in this day and time, that you have to be saved by someone outside of yourself. Many times ones will say to you that Jesus Christ is your savior. Now, in truth, I cannot save you.
First of all, you don't need saving. Second of all, you are equal extension of the one Creator, the same as I am. So I cannot save you. I can cheer you on, which I do. I can love you and applaud when you make that choice to live in happiness instead of challenge. But you do not need saving. You have that still in the collective consciousness thought that there must be a savior out there, and if I am a good person, if I follow the certain rituals of the organization, if I use my golden coins in a wise way-that is, giving it to the organization-then perhaps I can buy some saving. But you do not need saving.
You do need to wake up from time to time and realize-make real in your awareness-who you are, what you are: the extension of the one Creator. I say this over and over and over to you until finally, perhaps, it sinks in deeply enough that you are the extension of the one Creator come into this reality to experience and express your divinity. You are not only the Child of the Father/Mother/God/All That Is, because to speak of child yet speaks of separation, as you would see a small child, somewhat separate. But you are more than that, and you are even more than co-creator, which I know is coming into vogue now. You are Creator.
You do create as One, because, again, to speak of co- creator means that there must be another, and in truth, there is not another. You are the same as I am-divine, vibratory (in this physical form) love, come to experience and express, to reach out and hug, to reach out and smile, to reach out and support, to reach out and give hope to ones who feel themselves to be hopeless. So you can use as a tool the candle flame. It is accessible, easy to do, and it will take your mind, your focus off of all of the chaos in your life if you feel that there is much chaos going on. It will also allow you to make that step into joy.
For you see, once you take your focus off of all of what is wrong in the world, all of the injustice- and in human terms, there is much of injustice-in divine terms, it is all a play, a drama. And as I have said to you in other times, you are most blessed in that you have bought a ticket and you sit in the front row and you watch this drama and you applaud how each one plays their part. Some of them play their part really, really well. They have the black cape and the mustache, or they have the white hat and they ride the white horse, and anything in between, everything in between.
So you watch it all as a drama. You take your focus then away from the drama and you allow yourself to breathe in peace as you stare at the flame of the candle, and with that peace comes an opportunity for joy that the world does not know; joy of being, just being. You may find at that point that you hear the choir of angels singing, or not. You may hear a master speaking to you, "Well done." Or you may hear laughter. And then you find it is your own laughter that you are hearing. I have seen that happen, where ones have been so joyful with the feeling of freedom that they have heard laughter, and they have looked around and there is no one else around in the room, and they have realized it was their own laughter; most joyful. Great place to be.
So as I have said, these are tools that the Druids shared with me: earth, wind, fire, and water. Now, you know that the body is vibratory light brought into a density that seems to be separate from other bodies. It is also made up of ninety-some percent water, and you put into it hopefully every day a good bit of water to allow the functioning of the vehicle, the same as you put the water and the petrol into your vehicle to drive your vehicle.
Allow yourself to take a container of water, a glass or a cup, and hold it in your hand and focus on the vibration. You will feel a vibration. You may feel that you are imagining it, but it is truly your vibration and the water's vibration in synchronicity with each other. Allow yourself again that focus that says, "I am free. I am perfect. I am loved. I am so loved that I am love itself." And you put that feeling into the water and the water responds. It will accept your thoughts. And then allow yourself to drink it many times during the day. You do not have to drink gallons of water.
Even what has been said to you, that you have to have eight glasses of water in a day, that is not true. It is very good for the trips to the little room, but in truth, allow yourself to drink the amount that feels natural to you. There is no set amount, because bodies are different. This one's body is different from this one's body, different from this one's body and that one.
So different bodies will ask of you different amounts of water. So the eight glasses of water may be right for the person who first suggested it; maybe they were quite large and there needed to be a good bit of the water going through it. Perhaps a smaller size body doesn't need as much. But drink what is comfortable to you. You don't have to force it. I have seen ones do this to the place where it has become uncomfortable and they gave it up and didn't drink. Everything in moderation, please. What is comfortable for you?
Now, when you have worked with, played with the container of water, the next thing many of you are going to want to do is to jump into that shower or the bath. If you do a bath, I suggest that you slide down into the bath to the place where you have just the nose above, and then take a deep breath and go all the way under. Pretend to be the fish or the little puppy dog that comes up out of the water and shakes. Know you how freeing that feels? If you do the bath-try it sometime-go down all the way under where everything gets wet...oh, my goodness, going to have to work with the hair. I was going to keep the hair up out of the water so that I wouldn't have to work with the hair. Forget about the hair.
Allow yourself to go down under the water and come back up again and shake it all off. And when you are shaking it all off, know that everything that you have been worried about up to that point has gone flying off of you, out of your focus, away. And if it doesn't feel complete, do it again and again and again. You can do the same thing when you are under your shower. Stand under the flowing water that is coming down on the head, and then step back for a moment and shake it all off again. Have great fun. Bodies are meant to be flexible.
Oftentimes as the years go by and you take upon yourself the worries of the world, there becomes a rigidity of the body because you have armored yourself. You have felt it necessary that all of the slings and arrows of the world have been coming at you, and so you put this armor up around yourself, and the body understands that in its own way and becomes more rigid. But truly, every day get out there and shake it off. Allow yourself to move. Take off the shoes that encumber you and allow yourself to stand firm wherever you are and to move the body. Bodies were meant for movement. Bodies were meant for hugging. They were meant to reach out and to be One with another one and to play with the hair. Know you that this is what I do oftentimes. I go around and I play with the hair. Yes, I love to play with the hair; and the hugs; the most wonderful of hugs.. Most wonderful. I go around and I tease, because I want you to come alive and to be in love with life, with itself, with yourself as life.One more...(D: Good, girl) Thank you. No gender, yes; the Christ. But for all of you, I go around. Oftentimes I do not sit.
My beloved friend and teacher, the one you know as Judith, asks of me oftentimes, "Can we sit tonight?" because walking around sometimes is a bit more energetic. But truly, I love to be amongst the people and to feel the most silken of hair that you have and to play with the vibration of the hair. It is beautiful, as you are beautiful. Each and every one of you, allow yourself to come alive in that vibration of who you are, to come truly alive, to mess up the hair; here we go, we're messing up the hair; we'll give you a new style. It is the wise master, you see; this is the master approach (Laughter, chit chat) because truly you are the master. Now we will put it back the way it was. There, very good. Most wonderful. Beautiful angel. Let's play with your hair. You have beautiful golden radiant hair, eyes, the heart that loves. Truly, you are the angel. It is very difficult for an angelic presence to agree to come to this reality. Angelic presence is open, sensitive.
All of you, truly, in this room, you feel the angelic presence of yourself. (C: I want to take the hair clips out; I want to have...)(Laughter) (P: I've got a beard if you want to...)(Laughter) We will have to see the beard, yes, to stroke the beard and the mustache. Very good. Will you lend me that sometime? (P: Sure) That was a joy. Feel you the energy in the room when we do what is called the silly stuff? Feel you the energy of the love and hugs? Yes. Do this for each other, what I have just done with you. When you give hugs, if it is someone who will feel comfortable with this...now, there are some co- workers who may not feel comfortable with it, but allow yourself to touch and to touch the hair. Every hair is attached to a receptor that goes directly to the heart.
One of the first things that you do with an infant is to hold the back of the neck for the infant. One of the best things you can do for another person in love is to hold them at the back of the neck. You can do this for yourself, as well. It is a healing technique. It is a chakra that is back there, part of what is called the cranial sacral work, that you find that quiet point, that still point at the base of the skull in the back of the neck. When you are an infant, it is necessary for the first few months until the muscles are strong enough to hold the head, that whoever is holding the infant has to support the head. And supporting the head, holding that part of the back of the neck, is very calming and very loving and supportive, not only in a physical sense, but emotionally.
So if there are ones who are going through challenge and feel that their energy is scattered everywhere, if you know them well enough to give them the hug, take one hand up from the back, move it up from the back to the back of the neck. It will be part of the hug, and yet you move it up to the back of the neck as you hold them. We have spoken of the power of the hug being heart to heart. When you hold the back of the neck when you are heart to heart with another one, there is Oneness, and you can do that yourself when you are going through times of needing to know grounding, peace, Oneness, support; you can do that for yourself. That is why oftentimes when ones will get what is called the headache, it goes as a band across the forehead and down around the back of the neck, yes? You have felt that. And you reach back and, oh, you massage the back of the neck, and oh, this feels so good. Of course it does. You are releasing tension, and you are also supporting the holy Child of you. So when you watch someone and you see them massaging the back of the neck, it is to know that peace and support. So you have the tools that the Druids shared with me. You can also...on the last one, we spoke of water.
Allow yourself to find water that you can walk into that is out in nature. If you do not swim well, you put on what are called the little floating wings that will support you so that you don't go too deep and go straight to the bottom and have to be fished out. You wear the water wings. Allow yourself to walk into the water, to jump into the water, to be submerged in the water in nature, if you have it accessible to you.
The Druids knew how to do that because they were on the seacoast, and they knew the power of water. But you have the technology that brings water right to you, so you can do it in your dwelling place, as well. In these times that are right upon you, these are times that you have prayed for and you have asked for.
Even when you have felt abandoned and kicked out and nobody loves you any more, that is not true. But even in times when you feel that everything is going wrong, allow yourself to use some of these tools that we have spoken of to come to a place of peace for a moment or longer.
Sometimes you will reach that place of peace and then it slips away. Go back to it. That is the discipline. Go back to it. Don't just do it for a moment or so and you find a moment of peace, and oh, that feels so good...but what about what he said and she said, and I have to do this, and they were so mean to me, and I don't know why they said that to me...bring yourself back to that place of peace. But you know, she should not have said that to me. I didn't deserve...bring yourself back to that place of peace. It takes practice. It takes discipline. But the reward, no one can take that reward from you. When you reach that place of peace, there is no one who can take that from you.
When you have the discipline to come back to that place of peace again-and I know there are times when the heart is hurting and the ego is screaming that they should not have told me that I need this pink slip. I worked for this company twenty years, and I worked night and day, and there were times when I put in overtime and I wasn't even paid for it, and I even went home and I didn't have my mind on the family, because I was working on this project, and they gave me this pink slip. Why? I didn't deserve that. There were other ones who came along after me who were with the company less time, and they didn't get a pink slip. Why me?-bring yourself back to that place of peace.
Use one of the tools that we have spoken of; whatever works for you, whatever draws you to that place where you find the peace. And if you find that place of peace and then the feeling of ego comes in again and says, "I didn't deserve that; I gave them everything,"... place of peace. I want to know the peace that the world does not know. I want to know that which is above and beyond the world. I want to know my power; not as the world defines power, but my abiding eternal power as the One divine Christ that I am. And when you reach that place, no one and nothing can disturb you. When you reach that place, there is great joy, because you know that never again will I be vulnerable to anyone, to anything that they do or say or think. It is a place of great power, a place of great peace. I say this to you now in this evening, because there are so many changes that are happening so rapidly, and there will be what you see in the big picture mirrored in the individual picture and vice versa, so that there are blessings.
Count everything as a blessing, even if it doesn't look like it, and oftentimes in the beginning, the pink slip does not look like a blessing. The lover who says, "I don't love you any more," does not look like a blessing. The financial challenges, where I have lost all of my savings, my retirement money; how am I going to take care of myself? It does not look like a blessing. And yet throughout all of the challenges that come to you is the opportunity for freedom, the opportunity to grow in another way and to come to that place that knows, truly knows, that which the world cannot disturb or take away from you. Then you abide in the place of the Christ, and the most wonderful thing happens to you when you reach that space. You are so happy, so trusting, so knowing that you will draw all men and women to you, because they will want to know, "How can you be happy when you have all of these challenges and circumstances happening? What do you know that I want to know?" And you will find them coming to you and asking of you, "How did you get to where you are? How can you be happy? I want that secret." And you will find yourself fulfilling your purpose. Remember that sign-up sheet that you signed up on? You will find yourself fulfilling your purpose easily. You will not even think that, "Oh, yes, this is what I signed up for." You will just say, "Well, you know what works for me is...." And then you will share with them whatever has brought you to that place of truly knowing who you are and being the radiant Christ that you are, a place of peace, a place of power that the world does not know. So be it.
