Surrendering All Energies of Suffering

Awareness in the Current Vibration

By Master Kuthumi

Channelled through Natalie Glasson, 8 January 2013

It is with tremendous love that my energies flow forward to greet and connect deeply with your energies. We are all existing in a new vibration of energy, a new phase of ascension; whether you are on the Earth or the inner planes a shift has occurred within you and around you. A shift in vibration, consciousness and the radiance of your light has manifested because of your choosing within your being, in order to truly experience the next phase of ascension which is prominent within your own being it is appropriate to choose to radiate the results of the shift consciously into your reality. It is now time to choose to experience the shifts that have occurred within your being. A beautiful and most magnificent energy is and has unfolded from within you as a result of your devotion, dedications to your spiritual practices and because of the choices you are making at this moment. You have all accepted higher vibrations of light and consciousness which feeds your delighted body, consciousness and soul with nourishment, whether you feel the change within your being or not, it is appropriate to make time to choose to experience the blissful light that is and has manifested within your being. Let it unfold as you radiate your light beyond boundaries and limitations, choosing to experience the wealth that has manifested over this sacred time that we have all experienced. In truth this new phase of ascension with greater expansion, sensitivity, abundant volumes of love and wisdom and a greater sense of contentment within will only truly beginning to intertwine and become evident within your reality when you whole heartedly choose to experience it in your physical reality and throughout the many levels of your being. You will then notice your reality altering in beautiful ways, but this will be because you have chosen to let your energies flow freely which creates the most beautiful energetic patterns within your reality, resulting in you completely embodying and experiencing this new age and in truth all that you have been waiting for. With your choice you will manifest spaces, people and circumstances to assist you in experiencing the wealth of love and light vibration within your being. A space in which you can consciously unfold as a being of light and the Creator’s vibration.


In order for the new vibration to unfold from within your being it is appropriate to choose to develop your trust and faith in the guidance and intuition within your being. No longer is there a need for you to think with your mind, to think over matters or situations to gain further understanding, the time is now to allow your heart and soul to guide you, to in truth think for you. As a being who has recently opened yourself up fully to accept the powerful activation energies of December 2012, you have also expanded yourself to connect more fully with your truth, meaning a greater aspect of your soul. Your soul in all its beauty has taken a step forward to guide you in your reality as you allow yourself to become conscious of your soul’s eternal presence. You are connected to a greater expanse of your soul and therefore a greater expanse of all that is the Creator. You have the ability to be consciously guided permanently by your soul and the Creator as they express sacred truths, energies and vibrations from your being which interlink into the large plan that is unfolding for all on the Earth devised from the soul of the Creator. As a soul of the Creator you are playing a large part in this divine plan and so your every action contributes to the divine plan of every soul on the Earth. It is with this understanding that the realisation of the importance of following the guidance of your heart and intuition is integral at this time. No longer can you think and create with essentially the mind, no longer can you influence your reality with unsupported desires and actions. There is a need for everything to flow from within your being, from your heart. In truth it is a breath of pure freedom that is being given to you in this moment. No longer do you need to push and force your reality, to battle against the world but instead you allow yourself to flow with and as the divine flow of the Creator and your truthful being, thus surrendering that with pure intentions everything can and will manifest for you with tremendous ease as a beautiful story of connection, love and truth unfolds before you. In truth what I am speaking with you about is resistance. No longer is there a need for resistance in and against your reality and yourself. Resistance can be explained as trying too hard, wanting something too much, you are trying to force something that will manifest so much easily if you simply detach, place the intention into your being, reality and the universe and exist as a space of openness, love and peace following the subtle guidance that is present to support you with every step you take on the Earth. Allow yourself to link into the ever flowing river that is eternally cascading through and from your being.


You may also notice that your intentions and creations manifest with greater speed in this new energy, which allows you to truly understand when you have chosen to follow your intuition and when you have chosen to follow your mind or unsupported desires as you will see the consequence of your choice extremely quickly. With patience your ability to determine choices of truth which will serve yourself and others becomes very apparent as you step into the flow of the Creator’s loving vibration. Everything is unfolding with tremendous beauty when you allow yourself to view the beauty and the truth that has always been present within and around you.

I am aware of the presence of the Christ consciousness activating within all of us to assist in bringing forth the vibration of love as a manifestation on the Earth, whether we exist on the Earth or the inner planes. I, Master Kuthumi, am very conscious of many masters and souls holding a strong presence of the Christ Consciousness on the inner planes moving closer to the Earth in order to support the Christ activations that are occurring and will continue to occur through the coming years. The full embodied realisation that all those figures of worship, devotion or respect who inspire many on the Earth all hold the Christ consciousness is necessary, and in their lifetimes on the Earth brought forth to humanity pieces of the Christ Consciousness in order for complete acceptance and embodiment of all as the Christ consciousness.


It is Lord Krishna who comes forward with a very special service for you.

Lord Krishna asks you to call him forward in meditation and to simply breathe in his presence and Christ loving vibration.

If you are ready Lord Krishna wishes to assist you in surrendering all energies of suffering which may be held within your being in order to boost your energy vibration and purify your light. Simply say,

‘With the blessings of the Creator and the consent of my soul, I ask Lord Krishna to release and lovingly disperse all suffering that I am holding onto and remains within my physical body, being, vibration and consciousness.‘

Simply allow Lord Krishna to work with your energies, anchoring in place of the suffering vibration that you have held onto the energy of pure joy.

Lord Krishna achieves this service with you in order to activate and bring forth the vibration of the Christ Consciousness, the active energy of love from within your being. With the presence of releasing all suffering you are also cleansing and healing the vibration of suffering from the consciousness and vibration of humanity and the Earth, which is a beautiful service to yourself, all and the Creator.


With the presence of unity forming and manifesting on the Earth and between each being there is a greater opportunity for accelerated healing and further awakening for all. As you personally focus upon your growth, the expansion of your heart and so forth so this will be mirrored back at you from your reality. That which you achieve in your natural process of awakening will influence more than ever before the expansion and development of others on the Earth as well as Mother Earth. For example, as you focus on expanding your heart chakra so you are naturally expanding the heart chakra of the Earth simultaneously as we are all one. This has always occurred, as we grew and expanded on the inner planes the Earth and humanity began to mirror the same back to us. Now we are acting as your mirrors as you expand yourself to become more than your current realisation and an embodiment of the truth of the Creator.

It is blessings of Christ light and vibrations that are showered upon you.

Freedom from Suppression

By Master Kuthumi

Channelled through Natalie Glasson, 21 January 2013

It is with immense love that I step forward to support and enhance your spiritual practices and experience upon the physical Earth. Intense and expansive love is being expressed to you by many from the inner planes in great compassion for the pathway that you are now proceeding along on the Earth.

I envisage each of you standing in the countryside with an expansive piece of land before you. In the previous year and beyond you have nourished the soil of the land and have planted the seeds to create a luscious green meadow that will grow tall and strong. As you gaze upon the land you are aware of tiny green aspects of life rising from the soil, your meadow is beginning to grow and now you have the time to observe the growth of your meadow and to tend to its need. Sometimes you may find that areas of the meadow become contaminated so new seeds need to be planted. Other times you may discover the wealth of abundance that blossoms in order to bring delicious fruits to your reality and body. The meadow can become the most beautiful garden of grow, beauty and experience or it can become a strenuous burden of care for you as you strive to create something fruitful to nurture your being. It is my understanding that in this new phase of ascension there is no longer a need for any aspect of your reality to be a burden or a struggle. You have tended to the soil well and planted the seeds with love, this symbolises the spiritual practices and understandings that you have gained not only in this life time but previous lifetimes. Now is the time to ensure that the work and loving care that you took in the past manifests into beauty, fruitfulness and nourishment. If you were to sit back with the attitude that the work has been achieved and so you simply need to reap the rewards then you may find that your harvest or meadow becomes bleak and barren. If something is growing from seed, activating the life force energy and manifesting in whatever form, it will require your attention, love and care when it is divinely needed and guided. Too much attention can cause your meadow to be unyielding and rigid, as you put too many restraints and limitations upon the growth of your meadow. If you continue to nurture and nourish your meadow with love, intentions, a vision that is flexible and a connection with the meadow and that which is grown from and with life force energy, then you have the ability to create and nurture land that will continually be fruitful for you.

It is with your loving care for yourself, your creations, your reality and inner being that you will allow yourself to experience all that you desire. Now is the time to lovingly care for yourself, to be gentle with yourself and your energies because you may not realise but you have just completed a major cycle of transformation. A cycle which had multiple meanings and purposes for you and all of humanity. A cycle which allowed you to work through phases of karma, illusion and suppression on many levels of your being. Allow yourself to take time to realise or to even hold the space for contemplation of what you and humanity have just achieved. You have moved through a powerful and challenging cycle which demanded much for your strength and focus in order to allow yourself to shift and align with the Creator once more. As a warrior is weary when returning home from battle so you may be weary as you finish a cycle that you had long awaited to complete. It is almost as if the entire universe of the Creator is now taking a large breath and sighing deeply. The sigh is allowing for recalibration and a new way of existing to manifest from within your being which may take time to evolve, becoming a divine habit within your being. You may be tired, let yourself rest, you may need nourishment, seek what you require and take care of your energies and being as a preparation for further awakening. We, your guides and your soul do not ask too much of you at this time, we ask that you simply be aware of the needs of all aspects of your being and be willing to tend to yourself with love and compassion. It is through your tender love and compassion for yourself that you will allow a beautiful phase of your ascension to unfold.


The cycle that you have moved through held strong aspects and energies of suppression, illusion and karma. It is my belief that you will continue to explore these three qualities but on a different energetic level which allows for you to easily create love from each. You may feel as if you are being suppressed in your physical life but your spiritual being and wisdom is also being suppressed by you until you realise you are ready to accept your full and complete truth. There is only one thing that allows for complete connection and the experience of the truth of the Creator and that is the realisation that you have been suppressing your spiritual abilities and skills which has been a habit for many life times. With this realisation comes a deeper and purer realisation which is that you are ready to accept all that you are. Allow yourself to contemplate my words for a moment. Contemplate or feel within your being whether you believe that you are ready to accept all that you are.

Then remember my words at the beginning of my communication describing you standing before a meadow which is growing and evolving due to your past actions and attention. You have already created a platform where you believe that you have something to nurture and nourish within your being and to share with others; this platform is a belief, which can also be interpreted as a realisation if it is accompanied by a deep knowingness. Realisations however small or large allow for you to release aspects of yourself that you suppress in order for freedom and the experience of inner freedom to take place. Upon this Earth you are discovering your freedom; you are a limitless being of light and so your freedom is beyond limitations and boundaries, yet you can sometimes be fearful of exploring a small amount of your freedom. Are you aware of how you suppress yourself especially spiritually? Are you aware of how your suppression of your abilities, knowledge and inner power creates an entire reality of suppression, control and lack in your reality and the reality of many? When you allow yourself to exist on the Earth as a being of light with freedom in your realisations and expression of all that you are then you will notice that everything within your reality and the world begins to shift in order to align with you, the vibration that you are emanating. Another realisation is that the Earth is constantly aligning to you and all other aspects of the Creator on the Earth. You create from within your being. The Earth aligns to this creation in order to manifest in accordance to the amount of freedom that you offer and allow yourself spiritually. Now is the time to offer to yourself freedom, to realise that it is only you who is suppressing your spiritual abilities and therefore creating suppression and limitations in your reality.

When I state that there is now a need to take loving care of yourself, I mean that it is time to be, to observe and to nurture what has already been discovered, practiced and awoken within your being. This requires more sensitivity, discernment, precision and discipline than in the past. Imagine now that you are no longer looking at your meadow but you are the soil from which the seeds grow. Imagine if you were conscious of the growth and journey of each seed into a plant, you would be aware of each creation and the process of each creation simultaneously. The purpose of each creation would also become extremely important as you begin to realise that small creations hold the essential purpose of uniting or intertwining into a larger picture, purpose and creation. To take care of yourself is to be aware of your creations, intentions, the wisdom and energies evolving from within your being. To take care of yourself is to realise that it is now time to release the suppression in order to experience spiritual and therefore physical freedom.


It is my wish to share with you an invocation as a tool of releasing the suppression upon your spirituality. This suppression was not instigated by your guides for your protection but has been chosen solely by you, which can be a difficult burden to carry but also signifies that it can be easily transformed because you are co-creating with the Creator and has the power to bring freedom to your entire being.

‘Beloved Master Kuthumi, My Beloved Guides, My Beloved Soul and Beloved Creator, I ask that you observe and oversee my current process of awakening, supporting and encouraging my healing at all times.

I now ask for the healing energies of the Creator to surround me in order to heal and bring peace to all aspects of my being and consciousness that are choosing to experience suppression of my spiritual being, soul and truth. As I also open my being to express deep healing from the depths of my being to my existence on the Earth now, I allow for the tool of conscious choice to be present within my being allowing me to realise that I have the ability and the choice as to what I wish to experience on the Earth. I now choose, with divine and sacred guidance present, to heal and release the suppression that I have chosen and created within my physical reality which separates and limits me from connecting with and experiencing all that I am.

I now choose to create freedom in my reality so that I may expand my energies and experience the truth of the Creator. I now choose to create freedom in my experience and connection with all that I am. No longer do I need to suppress myself spiritually, energetically and also in terms of my inner power and wisdom.

It is freedom that I now choose to create and allow within my being knowing that this will translate as a beautiful loving experience of freedom for myself and all on the Earth.

I now cut the cords to my conscious and unconscious suppression of my spiritual truth, power, wisdom and energy. I am the limitless aspect of the Creator. I am all that I am in this moment which is a moment of truth.

With truth and love, thank you.’

A wonderful awakening is occurring within each being at this time, do not fight the awakening nor resist it but allow yourself freedom to explore.

With love,

Master Kuthumi

You have every reason to be in high spirits

 By Saul

Channelled through John Smallman, 24 April 2013

Humanity’s awakening from the illusion into Reality is a done deal — it always has been, ever since the moment of creation.  Reality is where you reside permanently, and you are presently returning home there, from a seemingly long and arduous journey to a most glorious welcome.  You have every reason to be in high spirits.  Nevertheless, at the moment it is difficult for the majority of you to perceive this because the length of time that you have spent away from home has severely dulled your memory of the glory awaiting you there.

Life in the illusion has been exhausting.  There have been many painful lessons that you chose to learn while engaged with it, and they have required much energy, determination, and persistence.  Nevertheless, you have remained true to yourselves and your purpose as you struggled with the experiences that life in the illusion presented to you.  Often, that has not been clear as you suffered the pain and sadness caused by the apparent separation from your Father, and at times it seemed to you that yours was a lost cause: “Was there really a heavenly Father, an infinite Source, a divine and all-powerful Intelligence, or was He simply an illusion?”  Well, you held to your paths – all different, but leading to the same goal: to awaken into Reality – and you will find amazing rewards when you complete them and arrive home.  Hang in there for these last few stretches of the journey that seems so interminable; the end is close.

A new day of brilliance and color unlike anything that humanity has ever experienced is set to dawn, bringing you unmitigated joy as all your fears and anxieties fall away, leaving permanent peace, harmony and contentment to replace them.  This is the day you have all yearned, prayed, and hoped for since you started searching for the divine Reality from which it seemed you had been excluded, shut out, perhaps even exiled, with no hope of return due to your sinfulness.  But as you know, deep within yourselves where the divine and inextinguishable flame of God’s Love for you resides, “sinfulness” is of the illusion and has no place in Reality.  You are immortal divine beings, created in Love, who chose to play with an absence of Love, separated from It, as you experimented with the freedom and power with which God had endowed you.
You were created One with Him and chose to individuate to experience the thrill of separation and apparent independence from Him.  This could only be done by building an illusion, an unreal environment in which to imagine that state, and the powerful abilities with which you had been endowed enabled you to do so.  The time has come for you to dismantle that unreal environment and return Home, leaving behind all the trauma and suffering that you invented to amuse yourselves.  Little did you understand when you decided to play these games how painful and terrifying they were going to be.



There is only God!  All life is part of God, He is all that exists, and without Him there would be nothing – an impossible, implausible, and inconceivable state of affairs.  So to build an imaginary and illusory reality separate from Him could only lead to terror.  And consequently, you have all experienced terror.
The real state of Love in which you are eternally enveloped is permanent, changeless, utterly wonderful.  That is why thought of change is so traumatic for so many of you.  Your move into the illusion was a change of inconceivable magnitude which caused you instant trauma, as life was reduced from a condition of total loving abundance and harmony to one of unimaginable lack where it seemed that you had to fight constantly for your very survival.  And that fear remains.

However, within the illusion change is not only possible, it is essential for your well-being.  The illusion is formed from a collection of judgmental beliefs of right and wrong, good and bad, acceptable and unacceptable, which can only induce fear and dread.  You call it duality, a state of either/or, whereas Reality is a state of and/and, oneness, indiscriminate loving acceptance, in which all are welcome, all belong, all reside in utter joy.

What you have to change are your outworn and inflexible beliefs — beliefs that you are separate, individual, unconnected, and threatened by one another.  They divide and traumatize you, encouraging you to build barriers between yourselves that disguise who you really are and present an image, a shield behind which you can hide.  But these images terrify you all; they are threatening and demanding, requiring you to defend them from aggression which is almost always present.  They force you, out of fear, to maintain the unreal state of separation that caused the fear in the first place. A catch-22 situation.

The new energies are intensifying so that you can feel them, embrace them, and through them recognize and reclaim your oneness with each other in Love and Trust.  You will become aware, fully aware, that all are one, that all are interconnected through the divine field of Love in which all that exists resides permanently, harmoniously, joyfully, forever.  And then you will have awakened.

With so very much love, Saul.

Monstaville Book I. Chapter 13


13

"There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest."
- Elie Wiesel.

21 April 2002.

Was just thinking of reaction. If I encounter Pigsy - when I next meet him. Took an Angel Card from the bowl and it still says ‘Forgiveness’ - the lesson stands! Give up all thoughts of engagement on negative and destructive levels.

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” - Oscar Wilde.

“It is constructive and worthwhile to analyse our emotions, including compassion and our sense of caring, so that we can become more calm and happy. Hatred, jealousy, and fear hinder peace of mind. When you're angry or unforgiving, for example, your mental suffering is constant. It is better to forgive than to spoil your peace of mind with ill feelings.” - Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama.

Okay, we can play your game. You scare me then I scare you - or rather get someone else to do it (in front of your girlfriend). We’ll see who scares the easiest.

Be a strong warrior and a practical strategist. Stay calm - stay cool.

Angel Card: Compassion - he’s a monster - a long way astray.

“Remember men, you are fighting for this lady's honour; which is probably more than she ever did.” – Groucho Marx.

2 May 2002.

He made as much noise as possible walking with shoes on the wooden floor in his flat again this morning, waking me up so early (I didn’t wear ear plugs). Angel Card: Light.

Children laugh regardless of having something to laugh at or about.

Just laugh. It is good therapy for you.


How to Direct Your Compassion.

“When you meditate deeply enough on compassion, there will arise in you a strong determination to alleviate the suffering of all beings, and an acute sense of responsibility toward that noble aim. There are two ways, then, of mentally directing this compassion and making it active.
                The first way is to pray to all the buddhas and enlightened beings, from the depths of your heart, that everything you do, all your thoughts, words, and deeds, should only benefit beings and bring them happiness. In the words of one great prayer: ‘Bless me into usefulness.’ Pray that you benefit all who come in contact with you, and help them transform their suffering and their lives.
                The second and universal way is to direct whatever compassion you have to all beings, by dedicating all your positive actions and spiritual practice to their welfare and especially toward their enlightenment. For when you meditate deeply on compassion, a realisation dawns in you that the only way for you to be of complete help to other beings is for you to gain enlightenment. From that a strong sense of determination and universal responsibility is born, and the compassionate wish arises in you at that moment to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all others.
                This compassionate wish is called Bodhicitta in Sanskrit; bodhi means our enlightened essence, and citta means heart. So we could translate it as ‘the heart of our enlightened mind.’ To awaken and develop the heart of the enlightened mind is to ripen steadily the seed of our buddha nature, that seed that in the end, when our practice of compassion has become perfect and all-embracing, will flower majestically into buddhahood. Bodhicitta, then, is the spring and source and root of the entire spiritual path.”
                - Sogyal Rinpoch√© (The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, Rider & Co., London, U.K., 1992, p.200-201).

"You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance." - Kahlil Gibran.

Power of Bodhicitta

The mighty Buddhas, pondering for many ages,
Have seen that this (bodhicitta), and only this, will save
The boundless multitudes,
And bring them easily to supreme joy.

Those who wish to overcome the sorrows of their lives,
And put to flight the pain and sufferings of beings,
Those who wish to win such great beatitude,
Should never turn their back on bodhicitta.

Except for Perfect Bodhicitta

Thus behold the utter frailty of goodness.
Except for perfect bodhicitta,
There is nothing able to withstand
The massive strength of evil.

- Shantideva.


Retrospective inserts.

“Nothing ought to be unexpected by us. Our minds should be sent forward in advance to meet all the problems, and we should consider not what is wont to happen, but what can happen.” – Seneca.

We must expect everything. For, if we do not expect something, then we did not create it consciously as a manifestation of our true Will as creator gods. We are, to hijack Alain de Botton’s comments, therefore injured when something unexpected happens to us because it represents the pain of separation from our true Being and Will. Everything that happens has already happened (in astral form, one assumes). We should see it coming because we know our own purpose and potential and, moreover, we are fulfilling and expressing them.

Human beings have been suffering from lack of perspective, of seeing all angles. We are not conscious enough so we see and identify with one thing (what we want) but do not recognise its polar opposite. We are divided by the ego and if we are demanding of life and other people we may react angrily when things don’t go our way. We feel insecure in our limited, self-centred view of life; it’s dark outside. Consequently, we seek to be in control. Yet, we seek perfection in the wrong places - in an impermanent world.

When we believe in the illusion it is delusion, says Mooji. ‘Are we experiencing our suffering or experiencing our suffering?’

Anger

Angry men are dangerous, argues Seneca in his book De Ira.’ “There is no swifter way to insanity” than anger, he said. As a useless, destructive emotion, we should all do what we can to extinguish it permanently, he suggests. When we deny our anger, as the insane might deny their insanity, we provide it with impetus; we allow it to rise up and be vented on others thus enabling it to survive, even thrive.  When we recognise and own our anger we can see it for what it is: an unnecessary, destructive force. As a result of being conscious and present, we are in a position to quell it the moment it starts to stir, before it gets the better of reason and takes over. Anger is but raw energy misdirected. It is the mind which allows it to fire off (and as Alain de Botton puts it, allows one to lose control to darker forces) and it is the mind which can also call the canons off. “Enemies to their closest friends...heedless of the law...they do everything by force...The greatest of ills has seized them, one that surpasses all other vices,” says Seneca. If we expect too much from the world, presuming that which we desire to be our entitlement, we are likely to feel frustrated and turn to anger, reiterates de Botton in his book The Consolations of Philosophy (Hamish Hamilton, London, 2000, p.82-85). It is unrealistic to be so ridiculously optimistic in a world of limitation when it comes to projecting one’s expectations upon it instead of creating one’s world and circumstances consciously. In other words, one has not learned to walk before they fly. Tyrants expect life and people to answer their will but they are stuck in duality, cut off from the whole and therefore dependent on it. Yet they behave, demand and act as though they were completely independent and can do and have whatever they want. They are conscious only of their own ego self and are not even willing or able to perceive others as existing beyond the jurisdiction of their own judgement which, ultimately, is an unconscious acknowledgement of one’s own limitations, one’s fears, weaknesses and faults. But the tyrant does not wish to look within and make that acknowledgement conscious because he, or she, would then have to change and that is what such a person fears the most. It is more convenient to simply and savagely identify with the projection that everything outside of oneself is – or, rather, should be - a reflection of one’s ego rather than a consequence of one’s own limitations. We have allowed ourselves to sink into density and it is our responsibility to climb steadily up and out of the swamp (albeit with help once we apply ourselves). Taking our frustrations out on others, or on objects, only serves to make matters worse by reinforcing that state of tension.

It is almost ‘comically optimistic’ that a person would expect to get their own way all the time regardless of the myriad limitations both within and without. It is “the ultimate infantile collision,” says de Botton, when things do not go as we, in our pride and obstinacy, want and, in our arrogance and hubris, expect. His favourite example is the person who, having lost their keys or the remote, slams doors and has a fit. But, as we know, anger is rarely if ever a pure and direct reaction to external circumstances. Always, the anger is there first, and is simply triggered from the outside. One is already frustrated and angry and read to explode in a fit of rage as soon as a good enough excuse emerges. The only solution, however, is to recognise that the anger is there to begin with and to both find safe ways to release it and diffuse it through awareness and the renewed flow of feeling that should result (and, ultimately, the flow of divine love in the heart uniting us with universal Reality).

The tyrant also anticipates insults and other annoyances and finds all kinds of things threatening because he/she feels that they deserve ridicule and other bad trips. Consequently, he or she identifies with the belief that such threats are imminent. To expectation is added suspicion. When we suspect that we could be targets, the next obvious step appears to be that injury is, indeed, on its way, as de Botton discusses (ibid. p.100-102). Of course, it is anger itself that is the tyrant. For, if we do succeed in ‘overcoming’ this weakness, there is nothing for us to react to either inside or out. Our energy is then less volatile and can be directed positively and creatively for the good of all.



"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." – Buddha.

“But when I asked him to think about the competitors who worried him, it turned out he was making big bright pictures of them looking confident and strong. I simply told him to step in (associate) to the picture of winning while taking the pictures of his competitors and shrinking them down into tiny black-and-white images. He practised a few times until he could do it automatically. The next day he went out and beat his personal best in practice.
                In a nutshell:

                The way you feel from moment to moment is a direct result of the way you are using your body and the pictures and sounds you are making in your mind.

                Now you know how to influence your state, you don’t have to be at the mercy of others or of circumstances to make you feel a particular way. By taking responsibility for the pictures in your mind, the things you say to yourself (and how you say them), and the way you use your body, you can now begin to choose how you want to feel in any situation.”

                – Paul McKenna (Change Your Life in 7 Days, Bantam Press, London, U.K., 2004, p.66-67. McKenna goes on to discuss the Inner Critic, offering a valuable reminder not to presume that, simply because we have a voice in our head, we have to listen to it, and that “criticism is meant to be constructive.” He quotes Cheri Huber: “That voice inside your head is not the voice of God. It just sounds like it thinks it is”).

ABe what you wish others to be.@ - Alma Gygi (Gifts That Reach Beyond The Sundown, UT., U.S., 1975).

“The importance of healthy boundaries can’t be overstated. It’s up to you to be clear about what feels right and true for you. Only then can you communicate your boundaries to others, rather than hoping that they figure them out for you. They won’t, and it’s unkind to ask them to try. It’s far more loving to be clear and direct than it is to beat around the bush being vague or passive-aggressive in an attempt to manipulate others into meeting your needs.
                Getting in touch with your boundaries is actually simpler than it sounds. Usually, a boundary has been crossed or ignored if you find yourself feeling irritated, angry or frustrated. When these feelings arise, simply check in with yourself and ask a few questions:

Have I said yes when I mean no?
Have I failed to express my need?
Have I gone along with something that doesn’t honour my Spirit?
Have I stayed in a situation when my Spirit wanted to leave?
Am I willing to change that now?
Have I made a decision that will take the pressure off?

                These simple questions begin to work your awareness muscles and help you better tune in to what’s kind and loving to your Spirit.
                The moment you do what feels kind to Your Spirit, the Universe will help you build healthier boundaries. Until you decide that it’s okay to communicate your limits, nothing can change at all.
                Another way to be fundamentally kind to yourself is to make choices that take the pressure off your life rather than living in a state of constant emergency and drama as you move from day to day. Kindness is rooted in being practical. The more grounded and realistic you are in your commitments, the less stressed-out you are – hence, the more peaceful and kind you can be.”

To withhold forgiveness is like embracing cancer

By Saul

Channelled through John Smallman, 21 April 2013

In the spiritual realms much has been transpiring as the new energies enveloping Earth have strengthened and intensified to assist in humanity’s imminent awakening.  Yes, it is imminent!  Much has been promised to you, and the moment for delivery is approaching rapidly.  Nevertheless there is much to do to complete the essential preparations prior to the arrival of this divine and long-awaited event, and every one of you has an important part to play.  It is largely about releasing judgment and embracing forgiveness, especially as your awareness of the misbehavior and betrayal perpetrated by those whom you have trusted grows in direct proportion to the number of whistle-blowers releasing previously hidden information about deceit and corruption in high places, and abuse of their positions by those holding them.

What has been done, in many cases, is quite unconscionable, but you are all divine beings, created in Love from Love, and you all chose to experience separation from your divine state.  The result has been great suffering.  There is no one embodied on Earth at this time in your evolution who, as Jesus tells us in the bible, “is without sin,” and therefore there is no one who is capable of making an honest, unbiased, and fair appraisal of anyone else’s behavior.  Judgment should be left to God because He judges everyone as sinless and sees only their divine perfection.

Unconditional forgiveness is the essential path to awakening, along with the peaceful containment and restraint of those who would continue, unless so contained, to abuse others.  Love, the Source-field in which creation occurs, accepts all, regardless of their sins, and by doing so dissolves the anger and resentment that leads people to sin.

“Sin” occurs when someone feels unloved, unaccepted, uncared-for, despised, inadequate, unworthy, shamed, or rejected.  It is a desperate call for attention, loving attention, that has been ignored or dismissed.  Everyone has at some time experienced that, and everyone knows what a wonderful sense of joy and comfort is experienced when unconditional acceptance replaces those unloving and fear-inducing conditions.  So everyone knows, deep within themselves, that unless they wholeheartedly embrace forgiveness and offer it unconditionally to all whom they believe have in any way offended or abused them they will continue to be devoured or eaten away by bitterness, resentment, and anger.

It is a vicious circle because those who hold on to bitterness, resentment, and anger are resisting Love, frequently believing that they are unlovable, and then often feeling driven to behave like those whom they find themselves unable to forgive.  To withhold forgiveness is like embracing cancer because it eats away at its host, preventing the experiences of happiness, joy, or contentment, and replacing them with an embittered but misplaced sense of satisfaction in the righteous refusal to forgive.  You have an expression “biting off your nose to spite your face,” which is quite appropriate here.

To become peaceful, to experience peace, it is essential to forgive, freely and unconditionally.  Many feel that this is impossible because they have been so abused, have suffered so severely, and believe that peace and contentment are only possible for them if they receive restitution and know that their abuser has been suitably punished.  But it does not work.  When justice has been delivered the pain remains, and the bitterness that the abuse aroused continues to grow. When the bitterness is encouraged and believed to be a right and a privilege onto which the victim can hold then no restitution is ever enough.  The complaint “no one can give me back what was taken away” is quite true.  But focusing on that violation of one’s personal sovereignty instead of releasing it means that life passes the victims by as they retain the memory of their violation as their most treasured possession.

Forgiving allows a person to move on, to re-engage with life, and to find solace and comfort where they possibly least expected to find it, namely, in the release of the extremely heavy burden that not forgiving entails.  By forgiving you release that unbearable emotional burden which can never be released in any other way. Support groups often aggravate the burden by encouraging undue amounts of introspection and discussion which can strengthen the sense of being wronged instead of lightening the load you are carrying, as is their purpose.  By forgiving you open your hearts to receive the abundance of Love that constantly enfolds you, waiting for you to accept It.  The lightness that you will experience as a consequence of truly forgiving someone who has hurt you will amaze you.

Forgiveness is a great healer and humanity needs healing.  Embrace it and enjoy the peace, the satisfaction, and the contentment — never mind the relief — that doing so allows and provides.

With so very much love, Saul.

Healing Abominations on Earth

 By Matthew

Channelled through Suzanne Ward, 11 April 2013
A reader recently wrote to my mother about something in our last message, and her comments in summary are: You said that negative thoughts and feelings about an abhorrent situation keep it going. How is it even possible to have any positive thoughts about this? She was writing about human trafficking, but our reply pertains to all abhorrent situations in your world.

The several issues we spoke about in our last message are of controversial nature—there is no controversy whatsoever about situations like human trafficking, sex slavery! Although soul contracts and karma are involved, the point we wish to address is the writer's question.

Prior messages have included our recommendation to visualize Earth in golden white light because it literally "brings to light" terribly disturbing conditions that formerly were hidden from public knowledge. Only when they are exposed can action be taken to end them and start healing the traumas they have caused.

You cannot "unknow" your knowledge of despicable conditions, and never would we suggest that you try to bury it—ultimately that would adversely affect body, mind and spirit. Rather, we urge you to visualize Earth immersed in golden white light, then see it start to slowly rotate with happy faces appearing, and send forth feelings of love. The energy of your image, loving sensations and intention will go out into the world.

God's energy distribution system, you could call it, assures that light-love energy from all sources off- and on-planet [“the acceleration of light being beamed at your planet to dispel the negativity abounding in humankind”] reaches the souls who most need it, those who are oppressed and their oppressors. Your energy along with light from myriad other sources is what will end all kinds of oppression in your society.

Understanding Homosexuality

 By Matthew

Channelled through Suzanne Ward, 11 April 2013

[Minus the first part of the message]

Now then, we wish to address a statement in a recent message: Eventually everyone will know that homosexuality is an advanced stage of spiritual growth wherein feminine and masculine energies are more balanced than in heterosexual persons.

A complex situation stated in such brevity begs explanation—especially since homosexuality is one of the divisive issues plaguing your world—and I have asked my mother to copy the part in a book that is relevant. Although it also includes information that pertains to residents of Nirvana, Earth's spirit world, we think you will find all of it enlightening.

[The following excerpt from the chapter "Relationships" in Matthew, Tell Me about Heaven was transmitted early in 1994.]


Matthew, can homosexual partners here continue their unions in Nirvana if they want to?

Yes. Mother, homosexuality is not understood on Earth, and this is a good context in which to explain it. Homosexuality is an evolutionary stage of the spirit even more than an aspect of the physical being, and it is not to be condemned or honored any more than any other physical or spiritual stage of development.

Remember, we are dealing with cumulative souls here, not single personages. Within each cumulative soul are perhaps as many as thousands of lifetimes of experiencing as male, female and androgynous beings in both incarnate and discarnate bodies. However, it is the immediate past life that most emphatically affects the beginning growth state here.

If that Earth lifetime was homosexual in orientation, it will enter here the same way. Since our bodies aren't designed for sexual activity, only the mental aspect of the orientation accompanies the arriving soul.



The immediate past Earth lifetime has another impact upon this issue. The people there who most vehemently denounce homosexuality are those whose souls experienced an immediate past lifetime as a personage with that orientation.

Matthew, that doesn't make sense to me. I'd think understanding and acceptance would be much more likely.

It's a complex and confusing psychic situation, Mother. The energy of the personages is still fractured from their immediate previous life experiences. At the extreme, homosexuals have been physically tortured and even killed, and at the least they have been maligned, often even by their families, to such extent that their psyches were severely damaged. Maybe they lived with the pain of denial or shame or the guilt of deception.

Whatever their experience, their energy has not healed enough for them to see the very same sorts of traumatic situations they themselves experienced and thus feel empathy. Rather, they see revenge opportunities.



The cycle of experiencing happens so quickly that the pain of memories most recently known, but hidden from consciousness, is with them too closely for the healing that will come in subsequent lifetimes.

The lingering pain in the suppressed memories of those souls who in this lifetime chose heterosexual nature causes their extremely antagonistic attitudes toward homosexuals. Those painful feelings will not surface in the form of memories of their homosexual lifetime experiences, but in attitudes to stifle the memories.

This is the universal like-attracts-like principle. When the feelings resulting from harsh or unjust treatment in any situation are recent and intense, similar feelings are attracted to that soul. Suppressed memories subconsciously know the source and recall it, thus attracting "like." However, the current lifetime psyche cannot consciously know that the attraction is of shared feelings, and the painful sensations of the suppressed memories take over.

Moving forward from that point in the psychic labyrinth comes in the process of lifeprint review, identification of karmic lessons still to be learned, choosing the next lifetime, and progress in spiritual awareness.

Do people who were homosexual in their immediate past lifetime always go through what you described, which would seem just to perpetuate things, or is there some leveling out point where all of us will accept each other just as we are?

The "leveling out" most assuredly is part of the divine plan, because feelings of prejudice and hatred and the infliction of emotional and physical cruelty are impediments to spiritual growth. However, even with the acceleration of light being beamed at your planet to dispel the negativity abounding in humankind, please do not expect this change to be completed within the next generation.


Is homosexuality more prevalent now than previously in Earth history?

No, but there are more people now than previously in your recorded history, so the same percentage creates the greater numbers. Throughout your recorded history well known and highly respected masters in one field or another have been homosexual, and many produced their brilliant and inspiring creations because of their tormented minds regarding this aspect of their nature.

You could say that without this element of their personage, they may not have been driven to create in the magnitude and splendor they did.

Why is homosexuality a necessary experience?

How better to learn balance in the two extremes of male and female sexual energy than on an integrated basis? The ideal is androgyny, which has nothing whatsoever to do with human sexual nature, but rather with the two opposites of human sexual energy attributes. Androgynous souls are far more spiritually advanced because of the male and female sexual energy balance they have achieved.

Just as male energy is not the province of only male humans, female energy is not confined to female humans. Male energy is harsh, often productive by ruthless means, always needing to prove a point or achieve success in a venture. Female energy is gentle, yet with greater, quiet strength as its foundation. Interconnectedness, which is the ultimate in conscious achievement, is female energy.



In relationships wherein one partner has only male energy traits and the other has only female energy traits, the female energy partner cannot withstand the imbalance lifelong or the life will not be long. In my awareness of such relationships, those which remained in that imbalance ended in early transition of the female energy soul. The survivor often has no frame of reference of his or her involvement in the partner's death.

You say "That person'—or `you'— will be the death of me." Like many other common expressions you use, that can be an accurate statement, but few understand the truth of their words. No blame is attributed here to either partner in such a relationship, as in many instances this is no more than karma being fulfilled according to pre-birth agreements. The dissolution of those partnerships by divorce also may be in accordance with the chosen lessons of their agreements.

Any balance within a lifetime is desirable. However, since sexual energy is one of the most essential aspects of the human psyche, the balance of male and female energies is probably the most desirable. In this realm there is that blending of male and female energies insofar as tendencies, sensibilities and sensitivities. That ideal state of balanced reality once existed on Earth, but it was corrupted.

Behaviors stemming from the perversion of the sexual energy stream have proliferated negativity on Earth in such proportions as to be almost unimaginable. By no means is sexual energy confined to what you commonly call "wanting sex" or "having sex."

Although extending beyond the original intent of the sex drive, which was procreation, a satisfying sexual relationship brings harmony into the lives of loving mates, and I definitely am NOT speaking against a mutually pleasurable, beneficial sexual union.


Furthermore, it is possible to transmute sexual energy into other productive avenues, and many who have lost or never had loving mates, do so. But I am not addressing the positive use of this energy, only the rampant negativity created by perversion of the entire sexual energy stream.

This has been the root cause of all that you think of as evil attributes in human nature. There is no crime by your civil, religious or philosophical standards that is not committed from a root cause of sexual energy perversion.

As an example, Satanic worship involving the torture and sacrifice of human and animal lives and brutal sexual activities prevails on a scale that would beg disbelief, but is real. This is cloaked under the guise of "religion," and your government officially recognizes it as such! You do not connect either those ungodly practices or their religion status with the perverted use of sexual energy that it actually is.

It shouldn't surprise you that often murder is sexual energy directed into gross deviance, or that rape and incest are other examples. Promiscuous sexual encounters or obsession with either having sex or rigidly refraining from natural urges are more benign, but still destructive to the psyche.

The dark forces are behind all these behaviors resulting from perverted sexual energy. It is not uncommon for the most corrupted activities to lead to the basest of dense energy, and no other aspect of human nature has been so pivotal in alienating a person from God.

At soul level there is inseparability, but in physical life, the more corrupt and deviant the sexual energy, the more the people engaging in those activities are distancing themselves from God. Sadly for you and Earth, these free will choices are rampant in your civilization and far from the chosen missions in most of the souls' pre-birth agreements.


Mother, however viewed by many on Earth, a loving homosexual partnership is NOT a perversion of sexual energy, and that brings us back to your question about homosexual unions in this realm.

Since there is no condemnation here of people's former sexual orientation, clearly there is no judgment regarding which souls are attracted to each other as mates. Experiencing here on every level is designed for the souls' spiritual evolvement, and that includes all unions. Whether heterosexual or homosexual in nature, the soul level energy and bonding commitment of all couples is totally respected.


Thank you, Mother. As you continue your journey toward increasing spiritual and conscious awareness, know that you are being assisted by the planet's highest vibrations in many millennia. And you have the unconditional love, respect and admiration of all lighted beings in this universe.

God, the Ego and Soul Purpose

A Saint-Germain Channeling

By Alexandra and Dan,
April 2013

This channeling is part of a Soul purpose reading with Saint-Germain.
It's been reprinted here with our client's permission.

"Dear Saint-Germain, I'm confused about my spiritual growth. I understand that we're supposed to overcome the ego and live as our Souls do. But why? Can you explain this to me? Because it's not clear. What is the ego, and how does it stop me from living a Soul-centered life?"

My good friend, I AM Saint-Germain. Most people identify heavily with their egos, or personalities, and not so much with the higher aspects of their Being, such as the Soul or God Self. This is the source of much confusion and suffering in their lives.

The ego is not you, and it has no independent life of its own. Instead, it is a false belief about you. The ego is a deeply rooted misunderstanding of who you are that originated long before you ever walked upon the Earth.

At its core, the ego is convinced that you became separated from God shortly after your creation. It believes that God stopped loving you, and then abandoned you, because you did what you wanted to do with your life, rather than what God expected you to do.

The ego believes that God is punishing you for this now – for abusing the free will you were given in order to violate God’s Will for Creation.

The Truth Is the Best Corrective for the Ego

In truth, God has never left your side. God’s Love is always there for you because your are Its living embodiment. And your belief that you have violated God’s Will is equally invalid.

It is impossible for you to violate God’s Will for creation because you ARE God’s Will for creation. You and all of humanity are God’s creative agents in the Universe. Your belief that you have done otherwise is nothing more than your misunderstanding of how co-creating with God works.

Even so, this misperception has provided fertile ground for the appearance of the ego.



The Birth of the Ego

The ego was born the moment that you first imagined, and accepted in your mind, that God had abandoned you. In that instant, the ego appeared and promised to be your friend, if you would only pledge your allegiance to it, and agree to accept its help.

The ego said that it would show you how to survive in a world without God’s Love – in a world where you lack what you need, and what you already have can be taken from you by others.

But because the ego’s assumptions about God’s Love are wrong, it has never been right about anything it has offered you. As a consequence, its promise to help has only sabotaged your efforts to be happy in the end.

How the Ego Creates Sub-personalities


How has the ego offered to help you?

To assist you, the ego has created a variety of personas to deal with the various threats it perceives. These personas, or sub-personalities, are psychological points of view that you assume, which try to protect you from whatever is feared, whatever is perceived to be lacking in your environment, or whatever source of love you think will abandon you.

They promise to assist you, by first assuming that the world is a fearful place, and then telling you that you are in danger of losing what you value as long as you are here.

In this lifetime, your ego, with its entourage of sub-personalities began to assemble the first time you felt unloved or abandoned. For many, this was in early childhood. At this time, you likely experienced an interruption in the flow of love between you, your parents, or someone else you trusted.

You may have said something or done something that did not meet with their approval, so they withdrew their acceptance of you.

You were made to feel bad about it; to accept responsibility for having caused it; and then to have to do something about it to make things better. You internalized this unlovable image of yourself and accepted it as your true identity.

From that point forward, this internalized image has acted as a sub-personality. Now it appears every time you are confronted with similar circumstances.

It is there to remind you that you don’t deserve to be loved because you have acted contrary to the wishes of another. It frightens you with the possibility that you will be abandoned by this person, and then it tells you that you must do something about it, despite the hopelessness of your situation.

This fear is so similar to the shock you experienced when you first believed that you had been abandoned by God, that it cannot help but have consequences.



Ending the Illusion


To dispel the illusions of sub-personalities in your mind, you must first reclaim the awareness of Who You Really Are.

You must remember that you are a child of God, and God also, and dedicate yourself to recalling this truth, each time you are inclined to doubt it. As you do, you will untangle the lies of these false personas that were planted in your mind by the ego, and find the love and healing that you desire.

There are really only two steps involved in doing this. The first thing that you must do is stop fighting with yourself. Every time you struggle with the illusion of being nothing more than one of your sub-personalities, you only make it more real in your mind.

Understand that each time you allow yourself to wear the shame, blame, or guilt that motivated the creation of a sub-personality, you are actually confirming that this sub-personality is who you really are. It is NOT. You must step out of this cycle of reinforcement completely.

End the illusion with a simple proclamation, “I Am Perfectly Whole; and wholly loved, worthy, and complete.” This is the second step you will take, and it will heal your mind with the Truth. As you do this, you will invite these wayward sub-personalities back home, and give then the love and acceptance that they need.

Repeat this affirmation often, and then live it with all your heart. Make this a daily practice, and you will see that your struggles begin to fall away.

Once you have taken these steps, there is nothing more you need to do. Simply anchor yourself firmly in the remembrance that you are a child of God, and God also, and then live your life with confidence and joy. Know that you are fully supported in this and deeply loved, and that your value before God is beyond question.

Thank you, my friend, for your question. I AM Saint-Germain.
