How can you tell if you’ve found your calling? Many have asked themselves this question a lot. Life has its ups and downs and usually within certain experiences, one is able to decipher their true calling. Despite one’s questions, here are 10 sings that can help one determine if they have found their calling.

*

1. You’ll realize you’ve been training for your calling since the moment you were born.

Indeed, even the biggest dissapoinments, the mistakes, the second thoughts, and the screw ups, they were all preparing for your calling. You’ll soon begin to undertstand that the so many bad events are lessons learned to be who you’re called to be. Usually at the end of any obstacle comes great recompense whether it be physically or just mentally.

2. Mystical things will start happening.

Another sign that lets you know you have found your calling is if you notice mystical things but let them pass as coincidences. Its not the fact that they’re exceessively perfect or too precise in time that will make you just note it as a coincidence. These coincidences will eventually fill you will wonder due to their constant appearances. This too exemplifies positive confirmation that youre being guided and that you’re not alone.

3. When you get off course, you’ll get redirected.

Pathways you have desired to stroll through will literally not be an option anymore. In the event that you accidentally take the wrong path, you will be certainly redirected. Not by coincidence but by fate. Many hints will come your way to let you know that you have been directing yourself the wrong way. Just as you are, you will be magically directed in the  correct path.

4. You’ll be guided by ease, even in the face of obstacles.

When you end up attempting to get through an obstruction, it can be difficult to decipher. Is your dedication simply being tried, or have you literally gone the wrong way? Tribulations can allow you to grow in your development process. The development of your true self and the vital piece you need in order to pursue your hero’s trip. Obstacles like any case can be signs that you have taken a wrong turn and usually the guidepost you can trust is somewhat of an intuitive feeling that can help you feel at ease. Once you you’re back on track, then this will continue to flow once more.

5. Magical mentors will appear just in the nick of time.

Exactly when you need it most, the right individuals will appear, with simply the tooles you’ll need to support you and your trip in a practically magical way.

6. Your health is likely to improve.

One of the most interesting reactions in finding out your calling is that your health is likely to improve. You may begin to notice that you no longer crave those greasy and crunchy snacks. Your energy levels will begin to rise giving you sufficient courage to finally get up and get some exercise. Those pains that tormented you for so long will soon vanish and you will deliberately feel less drained throughout your day. Even better, those chronic illnesses that you may have been compating for some time now, might begin to improve. Awesome right?

Lets take Andy Mackie, for instance. At 59 years of age, Andy Mackie had experienced nine heart surgeries and was taking fifteen medications to keep himself alive, yet the medicines left him feeling loathsome, so one day, he insisted his specialists that he needed to stop the medications. They let him know that if he did, he would pass away in a year, so, Andy chose that if he was going to pass away, he needed to accomplish something he wanted to do for a long time. Mackie took the cash he would have spent on his drugs and utilized it to purchase 300 harmonicas, and he gave them away to kids, complete with harmonica lessons. The next month, he was still alive, so he purchased another 300 harmonicas. Thirteen years and 20,000 harmonicas later, Andy Mackie passed away.

7. You may find that money flows in just as you’re ready to throw in the towel.

In the event that you’re on the right way, money may show up mysteriosuly without no trace of where it came from. Once this occurs occasionally without you blaming it as a coincidence then you’re truly right in the perfect momentum in order to focus on your life’s motivation to find yourself.

8. You may feel strangely peaceful, even when you have every reason to be anxious.

Even at the most ridiculous times for you to feel scared, anxious, and confused you will begin to feel stragely peaceful. The funny thing is that what used to make you anxious and scared before won’t really affect you much when you have found your true calling. You will be so comforted by the way that you’re on the way to your purpose that you might feel abnormally serene until your normal personality kicks in. Eventhough stress happens and anxiety takes place often in our daily lives, you will notice a feeling of peace which will be a huge help. It will help you to comprehend what you’re called to do.

9. The Universe will roll out the red carpet.

At the point when what you’re being called to do is what is required for the  great of all creatures, the Universe will twist around in reverse to give you whatever you require on a silver platter. No solicitation is too little. A marketing specialist might volunteer to help you on exactly with something you need help with. Somebody will give you a printer when it’s time to print a flyer. You’ll feel so supported, so fortunate, that you’ll know you’re on track, regardless of the fact that you’re not exactly clear what you’re on track to do.

10. Your people will find you.

Only few can satisfy a calling alone. The greater part of us need a group of people to help lift us up as we do courageous, frightening, world-evolving things. In any case, don’t stress. When you’re truly intentionally trying to find youtself, your people will help find you, if only you’re sufficiently courageous to be vulnerable about what you’re being called to do.

Reincarnation is actually a very widely held belief in the world…but this girl claims to have remembered her previous ten lives.

Could someone actually recall the past ten lives that they had?

From the time Joey Verwey was just three years old, she was telling her family amazing stories that she was able to remember from her previous ten reincarnations. Stories that were so unusual and detailed, there was no way that she could have learned them on her own.

By the time she was five, she was meeting regularly with parapsychology professors, reincarnation gurus, regressive hypnotherapists, and investigative journalists, who all concluded that this innocent child offered the most convincing, modern evidence that reincarnation really exists.

Her first life was a cave dweller about 200 million years ago. She remembers being chased by a dinosaur, and leaving stone and bone tools behind in a cave. Today, she was able to lead investigators to a series of caves in South Africa that she had never seen before. These were the exact same caves where Royal Society Fellow, Robert Bloom, discovered the missing link between apes and humans, Australopithecus Africanus.

Twice she lived as an Egyptian slave, and remembers with perfect accuracy the conditions on board a slave galley, and their ancient techniques of paving stone roads.

There are other, less undefined memories from other ages, where she remembers wearing a heavy veil, and seeing a Princess riding in a carriage on the back of an elephant.

She remembers details from her life as a persecuted Christian, during Roman Emperor Nero’s wicked reign of terror in the first century, where she may have met St. Peter.

She also recalls living in South Africa in the early 1900’s, as a grandchild of then President Paul Kruger, and then growing up to have two husbands, and ten children. On investigation, these people proved to be real, and it was discovered that one of her children was still alive and in her nineties.

Five year old Joey met this elderly woman, who was instantly reminded of her own mother, and the two had long, convincing discussions about their past family life together.

ANDREA – 10 Warning Signs the Universe sends when you are on the Wrong Path – 11-1-15

Many people believe that things “just happen” to them, but as we connect more closely to our intuition we are shown that everything that happens to us is of our own creation.

We may not be fully aware of what we are creating moment to moment, but fortunately the universe provides us with many signs to let us know when we are on the right path, and (more importantly) when we are on the wrong path.  This article will focus on the warning signs from the universe.

https://reikiwithfriends.wordpress.com/2015/11/01/10-warning-signs-the-universe-sends-when-youre-on-the-wrong-path/

In general, warning signs from the universe occur in the form of unwanted circumstances and events.

These signs are an indication that your energy is headed towards (or currently stuck in) a low vibrational frequency.  Your thoughts, feelings and actions are focused negatively, and this is creating unwanted circumstances.

Conversely, when your thoughts, feelings and actions are moving at a high vibrational frequency, life will line up perfectly.  You will have excellent timing and good luck all day long. This is why it’s so important to raise your vibration by consciously choosing positive thoughts.

Although we have the ability to resonate at a high vibrational frequency, it is challenging for us to stay elevated all of the time.

This is because our souls are stuck here on Earth in a physical dimension that is much denser and slower than the higher, ethereal dimensions.  The simple makeup of our planet and bodies is composed of much lower vibrational energy than that of our souls.

As a result, we will likely bump up against unwanted circumstances from time to time, but that’s ok.  As long as we heed these warning signs (without allowing our egos to fixate on them!) we can get back on track quickly.

As you move through your day, it’s a good idea to take note of the warning signs from the universe.  Here are a few examples of signs to be mindful of:

Warning Signs From the Universe

  1. Stubbing your toe
  2. Getting stuck in trafficScreen Shot 2015-10-30 at 7.52.28 PM
  3. Receiving dirty looks or snide remarks from others
  4. Getting injured
  5. Unexpected expenses or bills in the mail
  6. Uneasy gut feelings
  7. Arguments with your loved ones
  8. Getting sick
  9. Headaches
  10. Losing or breaking your possessions
  11. Unpleasant odors, sounds or tastes

Each of these signs is an indication that you need to center yourself and adjust your frequency.  When you encounter one of these warning signs, please stop! Do not keep working on that task, or having that conversation, or obsessing over that thought that you were just having because it is not taking you where you want to be.

Instead, take a deep breath, step away from the situation, or even take a minute to meditate if you are able to. If you catch these warning signs quickly and respond immediately, the simple act of centering yourself will stop the negative momentum.

As a final note, please try not to obsess over a warning sign.  Talking about it, thinking about it and replaying it your mind is a surefire way to lower your vibrational frequency.  Take it for what it is, a simple “stop sign,” and move on from it.  Please take care of your vibration; only give attention to the thoughts, feelings and actions that resonate with your soul’s natural frequency.

Thanks for reading,

Andrea

Planting Seeds of Intention – Tania Marie’s Blog – 8-25-15

Planting Seeds of Intention   –   Tania Marie’s Blog   –   8-25-15

Yesterday, the next piece of the journey showed up and began manifesting.

As I’ve mentioned, we decided to move forward into the reality we want to create even though we don’t know how the rest of the pieces will come together.

I just knew that if we did, they would. And they ARE!

It’s important to take actions in support of your intentions and not just sit back waiting. That said, it’s also important to make those moves in aligned timing with the energy presenting itself, following the rhythm of natural flow.

When you receive the signs and messages, feel the nudge or tug, or feel your intuition subtly or loudly guiding you forth, it’s time to take a step.

So when you ask for something you need to also engage it on your own end.

And when you want something you need to be aware that your mind and ego will run amuck giving you every reason why this, that, or the other thing needs to be in place before you do anything – inevitably holding you back and losing opportunities that keep presenting themselves because they aren’t appearing in the form you’ve attached to as being ideal and yet ARE in fact ideal and for the highest good, but you’re too fixated on controlling it.

Archangel Gabriel – When you dedicate your life to God, you move into the lifestream of Pure Consciousness where there are no limitations – 8-14-15

Shanta Gabriel

*

Dear One,
When you dedicate your life to God, an expansion occurs. When your energy fields expand, the limitations of the physical world begin to drop away. You feel lighter, uplifted, more joyful. Your heart resonates at a deeper level of truth. You begin to operate at a higher level of awareness. This new awareness brings you a more enlightened perspective on your life.

*
It is a wondrous feeling to be in a place of enlightened perspective. All of a sudden you look at your world with new eyes. Your attitude is one of love and compassion, and you become more forgiving of situations that would normally have upset you. This is the grace available to you from the Divine Source. It is always available to you and exists as a stream of heightened energy-frequency, or Pure Consciousness.

*

How do you reach this heightened state of awareness? Through prayer and communion with your Higher Self, by connecting to the loving Source of all that is, and by breaking free of the bonds which limit your thoughts and conscious awareness of life.

*
So many people contain their thoughts in limiting boxes. Because things appear to be a certain way, they believe it to be truth. The Angels are here to show you another way of looking at life, one in which there always exists a greater level of truth, and where love and harmony are the qualities you can manifest. When you breathe deeply and visualize your energy-field expanding, you are allowing this greater level of truth to become apparent to you. It becomes even easier if you ask your guardian Angel to show it to you. Asking is a form of prayer, and there is opportunity available to see the “larger picture” if you want to. Prayers are always answered.

*
When you pray you open the door for a greater level of energy to work in your life. This is the pure potential energy that becomes available to you as you turn your life over to God. We call it a Lifestream because this is the energy in which you live, move and have your being. It is the essence of you, because you are a part of All that Is. When you remember this truth, and give yourself time to commune with the Higher Power within you, limitations drop away.
*
Practice
Right now, take the time to dedicate your life to God. Imagine this Lifestream of pure consciousness flowing around and through you in rivers of love and light. Be willing to have your limiting beliefs drop away so that miracles can occur for you in your physical world. Sometimes it might appear as though only a miracle can make the difference in your situation. Allow this to occur as the natural result of remembering the Divine Spirit that is really in charge of your life.

*
The Angels are available to assist you, as close as a prayer. Open yourself to a new way of seeing your world where love, joy and harmony abound. All this is possible when you remember your Angel message today.

*

When you dedicate your life to God, you move into the lifestream of Pure Consciousness where there are no limitations.

*

And so it is.

Makia Freeman   –   Soul-Catching Net   –   Are We Recycled at Death to Remain in the Matrix?   –   7-23-15

*
that awaits us at death – and keeps us in the Matrix – is a grim and highly disturbing notion, but one which I believe has to be considered by all serious researchers of the global conspiracy. True free thinkers want to know exactly where the global conspiracy rabbit h*** ends. Just how far does the suppression go? Past this lifetime? Past this planet? Well, the answer may well be yes to both. After you spend years of research going through the many layers of political corruption, corporatocracy, surveillance, false flag attacks, central banking, GMOs, geoengineering, Zionism, Illuminati bloodlines, the radiation agenda, UFOs and ETs, alien intervention and more, you come to realize that the true source of the suppression is at the intersection of consciousness and conspiracy.

Why? Because the conspiracy is all about suppressing your idea of Who You Are. It’s about convincing you that you are nothing, no one. It’s about convincing you that you are just a biological machine, fit to serve as no more than a cog in a machine or as Pink Floyd put it just another brick in the wall. Mainstream science to this day still denies the existence of consciousness just because it can’t get a handle on it with the 5 senses. Its simplistic solution is to disregard anything it can’t measure.

There are many researchers who will be unable to contemplate this topic, or refuse to go there, because it clashes with their belief systems, such asreligious belief systems (the afterlife is either Heaven or Hell, or 100 virgins, but not a soul net), scientific/materialistic belief systems (there is no such thing as a soul or consciousness) or various other belief systems (there are no such things as aliens or extraterrestrials, etc.). If you have read this far, you probably are ready to go beyond those belief systems, having realized they are set up to create a false dichotomy, and to limit and disempower you. You have probably also realized that the true manipulators at the helm of the conspiracy are non-physical entities, which various religions and cultures have referred to the Archons (in the Gnostic tradition), Djinn or Jinn (in Islam), Demons (in Christianity), the Mud Shadow (in the books of Carlos Castaneda) or by other names.

What is the Reincarnation Trap / Soul-Catching Net / Soul Net?

The idea is that upon death, our soul or consciousness separates from the body and then undergoes a process where its memory is wiped clean and it is recycled – reincarnated – into another body to repeat the same process. In this way the Earth becomes a literal prison planet from which it’s very difficult to escape. The soul net is placed there as an artificial energetic grid(not the natural energetic grid of ley lines of Planet Earth) to prevent any soul from getting through. Thus the Earth remains a closed system where new people are constantly born for the purpose of powering the economy and generating (negative) emotion for the Archons to feed off, not remembering Who They Are or what the real situation is. The soul net ensures the planet remains a trawling ground for the Archons to trigger our emotions (which they expertly do through the media, war, fear and other methods of deception) so they can get fed. As Don Juan put it in Castaneda’s final book,The Active Side of Infinity, we are like humaneros, raised like livestock on a farm to be exploited.

Remember also The Matrix series of films. Morpheus shows Neo the shocking truth that we are raised as a food source for the Controllers. He shows Neo a symbol of the battery. While this is a good symbol, a battery implies a storage of energy. In actuality, we act as generators of energy for the Archons, so a generator you see at a construction site might be a more accurate symbol.

However, because we are powerful beings, the Archons can’t just rely on force for all this. They need to trick us into giving them consent. How do they do that? How do they get us to go willingly into the soul net? With the trick of the white light …

The Soul Net Relies on the Trick of the White Light

We have been told through various sources that the white light at death is something to head towards. Hollywood films such as Ghost promote this. People who have experienced OBEs (Out of Body Experiences) mention it.

Yet what if, as David Icke, Wayne Bush and others have suggested, the white light at death – and light itself (in this context) – is the trick? What if light is the source of the deception? After all, the Illuminati and other Secret Societies worship Lucifer, the Light Bearer. Michael Tsarion talks about theoccult weaponization of lightCameron Day talks about why he is no longer a lightworker, because of the false duality and the fake “light”. What if the New-Age talk of “light” is another trap? What if light is the source of the matrix prison planet? What if light is the mechanism for the soul net?

Sounds far out? It is, so let me now introduce the various sources, old and new, which are suggesting this concept. When independent sources, especially from different time periods, all come forth with the same idea, it’s a good sign that the information has validity.

ET Contactee Simon Parkes

Simon Parkes is an incredible modern day ET contactee. If you listen to his interviews it is clear he is a rational, level-headed man, who even holds a position in local government in England. Parkes states that alien interventionand genetic manipulation occurred earlier in humanity’s history, where our DNA was tampered with and our psychic abilities repressed. This was done so that no one could challenge the prison guards (the Archons). In presentations such the video above, Parkes also mentions the trick of the white light and the soul net.

WingMakers Neruda Interview #5

The WingMakers story is an astonishing creation, full of stories of humanity’s history, poetry, paintings and music, well worth checking out. To me, one of the most powerful of the stories – which are written as fiction but come across as completely factual – is the Neruda Interview #5, where we learn of how all of us humans – who are divine, infinite consciousness – came to be trapped inside physical bodies that die. The deception came about through the conspiring of 3 separate alien races (the Annunaki, the Serpent Race and the Sirians) who found a way to trick the Atlanteans (our ancient ancestors) to inhabit biological vessels (the human body). Part of the deception involves Anu, the reptilian king of the Annunaki, ruling over humanity as king, and setting up planes of existence to ensure we never get out – including the soul net reincarnation plane.

The World as “Maya” (Illusion)

A theme in Buddhism and Hinduism is that this world is Maya or illusion (i.e. the matrix). Another Buddhist teaching is that life contains suffering, and that reincarnation is an endless cycle of suffering (the wheel of Samsara) that can only be broken through spiritual practice (i.e. the raising of one’s consciousness). Although some people may see this as pessimistic, it exactly fits into what we know the grander conspiracy and the soul net. The millennia-old Tibetan Book of the Dead is an instruction manual for monks on how to prepare for the point of death and attain liberation by avoiding reincarnation.

Val Valerian

Val Valerian is a former CIA agent (real name John Grace) started writing about the idea of a soul net in the 1990s, before The Matrix trilogy of films. In his books he writes:

“It is they [Grey aliens] who await in the light when a human being dies. The human being is then recycled into another body and the process begins all over again… Hence the Light and Tunnel at death Trap. Scanning someone they wish to recycle as they near death, the aliens discover who the person was close to has died. They project the person(s) image in the white light tunnel and the image waves you in deeper. If you CHOOSE to follow you can be trapped and sent to another incarnation of their choice… these entities view Earth as a big farm.”

— Val Valerian, Matrix II & Matrix V

Tanaath of the Silver Legion

Tanaath of the Silver Legion also talks about the existence of the soul net or reincarnation trap. She describes it as a holding pen designed to look like whatever the particular individual or soul would expect the afterlife to look like. For instance, if you were a Christian and expected to see St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, you would see that; if you were a Muslim, you may see 100 virgins. She also makes reference to the fact that your memories are wiped before you are sent back to Earth to reincarnate

There are various other people who know of (or believe in) the existence of the soul net, such as Wes Penre, ET contactee Peggy KaneGregg Prescott of in5d.comGreg Calise and many others.

How interesting that soul netsoul harvest and soul trap are all magic card games, books or video games. The idea of a soul net is out in the public consciousness. The question remains: is enough of humanity ready to confront it and investigate it? Can enough people grasp the magnitude of the soul net – that forced reincarnation into a prison planet is the ultimate enslavement – and raise consciousness about it?

Wes Annac – Experience – Transcending the Conditioned Mind – 7-19-15

Credit: integralactive.caseycapshaw.com

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

http://cultureofawareness.com/2015/07/19/experience-and-transcending-the-conditioned-mind/

Here, I’d like to examine some material from Jiddu Krishnamurti about experience and transcending the mind’s conditioning, which has kept all of us from connecting with our essence at one point or another. As he’ll tell us here, external experience is one of many things that reinforces our sense of separation from our higher consciousness, and we have to do away with our attachment to it if we want to leave the realm of the mind.

We don’t have to be ruled by the desire to gain experiences, and the conditioned mind seems to require certain experiences before it can find temporary peace. It’s never really at peace, but it’s peaceful for a moment when we have fun or enjoyable experiences.

Depending on what we’re doing, the mind doesn’t seem very active when we enjoy ourselves. In that moment, we aren’t being conditioned to want or need something before we can be happy, because we’re already having fun. The moment our enjoyment is taken away, the mind will go right back to needing things or experiences to be happy.

We’ll continue to struggle with endless desire until we can transcend the need to gain certain experiences, which is one of many of the mind’s tools that keep us trapped in limitation. I’m not referring to the kind of desire that encourages us to do constructive things that help the world – I’m talking about the self-serving kind that keeps us from connecting with our essence and exploring our True Reality, which is much different from the illusory, limited reality we’ve been conditioned to accept.

Krishnamurti

First, Krishnamurti shares the link between belief and experience. Our experiences are formed around our beliefs, he tells us, which then strengthens our beliefs and offers us more relatable experiences.

“Belief conditions experience, and experience then strengthens belief. What you believe, you experience. … Belief is another cloak of desire. Knowledge, belief, conviction, conclusion and experience are hindrances to truth; they are the very structure of the self. … The unknown can never be experienced by the known; the known, the experienced must cease for the unknown to be.” (1)

The mind knows it can’t experience a higher consciousness, because this consciousness exists well outside of the mind and any attempts we make to mentally define it will be in vain, he tells us.

“The mind is aware that it cannot capture by experience and word that which ever abides, timeless and immeasurable.” (2)

He also explains how experience conditions us to be separate from our essence.

“Experience is the response to challenge. This response is conditioned by the past, by memory; such response only strengthens the conditioning. Experience does not liberate, it strengthens belief, memory, and it is this memory that responds to challenge; so experience is the conditioner.” (3)

Our response to challenge comes from our memories and previous experiences, and this automatically makes it harder to handle. If we could open up, get to a space beyond the mind and allow our essence to make itself known, we could find new, inventive ways to complete our challenges and gradually, they’d get easier.

These troubles are harder when we’re stuck in the mind, but when we can get to that crucial space beyond it, we’ll no longer approach them from the perspective of someone who’s separate from their essence and only has their memories and experiences to go by.

Credit: enlight8.com

They’ll get easier when we stop dealing with them from a conditioned space, and slowly but surely, we’ll find that they no longer stop us at all. They’ll stop presenting themselves at a certain point because they’ll no longer be necessary. We’ll have found all of the love, strength and perseverance we used to seek from the confines of the mind, and any challenges we do face will be as simple as breathing or walking.

In our final quote, Krishnamurti explains why living in the mind and being focused on external experiences will never allow us to glimpse the unknown. This quote might sound confusing, but keep in mind that he uses the word ‘experience’ when referring to the external experiences that hold us back and ‘experiencing’ when referring to being connected with our higher reality.

The most important part of this quote, in my opinion, is the sentence, “Life is the present, it is not the experience”.

“Experience is already in the net of time, it is already in the past, it has become a memory which comes to life only as a response to the present. Life is the present, it is not the experience. The weight and strength of experience shadow the present, and so experiencing becomes the experience.

“The mind is the experience, the known, and it can never be in the state of experiencing; for what it experiences is the continuation of experience. The mind only knows continuity, and it can never receive the new as long as its continuity exists. What is continuous can never be in a state of experiencing, which is a state without experience. Experience must cease for experiencing to be.” (4)

As we continue to open (or depart) the mind, we’ll understand all of the psychological mechanisms that have held us back as we get ready to leave the mind and embrace ‘experiencing’, which, as Krishnamurti said, is ‘a state without experience’. The mind’s experiences, which repeat over and over again in our heads in an endless loop, block our perception of the nondual reality we can access, and transcending the mind’s influence and the need to gain external experiences is the best way to connect with this new reality and allow our wisdom to flow through us.

The next time you struggle, try to get out of the mind and part ways with whatever attachments were making you struggle. Try to approach whatever you’re doing with a clear, detached mind and a connection with the nameless, formless reality we’re rediscovering, and watch as your struggles get easier. You’ll no longer be attached to them, and your attachment to the experience of success will have faded along with every other attachment that keeps us locked in the mind and hinders our progress.

When the need to experience ceases to be, we’re left only with the silence, stillness and calmness of the present moment, where anything’s possible. We’re basically infinite when we’re in this space, and the funny thing is that we might not want to do anything at all except explore it and see how deep we can go.

With every non-effort and every departure from the confines of the mind, we’ll go deeper and deeper until we eventually realize the reality of our connection with God. In this space, we’ll be truly free from the mind’s distortions and distractions, and as a result, we’ll finally know peace.

I Am Babaji, the savior of mankind, inasmuch as I am caring for your survival as a divine race.

I am the Consciousness of Light that is directing the forces of good to inspire the hearts of men to choose the right path. And the right path for mankind is always the one of liberation.

Stasis is never leading to liberation. And every movement forward is a choice that brings you to a heightened awareness, to an expansion of consciousness.

Stasis is dangerous because after a short while it tends to spiral downwards into tamasic, and then self-destructive tendencies.

It makes you abandon the path of raising your frequency into greater light and sink downwards into more and more darkness and unconsciousness, until you have forgotten the light.

So I am seeing to it that mankind is given constantly the opportunity to grow toward highest potential, which is your innate Divinity.

Without challenges, there are no impulses to set one foot before the other to overcome them, when darkness has already set in. Similarly, without suffering of what you don’t want, you do not begin your journey to find out how you could achieve what you want.

As soon as you begin this journey, you have in fact entered the spiritual path. Because with that initial question, you will discover that you cannot stop going forward until you are finding out who you are. And without knowing yourself, you are not able to create your own destiny.

To create your own destiny, you must know yourself. You must discover who you ARE, whereby you discover your divine creative powers. Creativity and Divinity are two sides of a coin, because divinity does not exist without creativity, and you cannot exercise your creative powers without knowing your divinity.

As you see, evolution occurs on the pillars of duality: In your situation, the light and the dark, as these forces are so dominant in your present experience. The emergence of the dark at these times, and the fight between the light and the dark forces, is merely the trick of your own Divine Consciousness to allow you to acknowledge that these dual forces are projections from your own inner state of human consciousness, fighting, in reality, within yourself – even if unconscious – yet.

What you perceive outside of yourself is the mirror that reminds you of what you have chosen at a time to play with and to experience in this incarnation. It is a mere exploration of those possibilities, because you all know profoundly your true state of mere bliss and mere light. But you asked yourself and wanted to experience: What if light would diminish, what if light would cease to exist, and what would be the outcome of it.

Now, after so much suffering and having fallen into the pit of darkness (darkness is always present as soon as only one iota of the Absolute Light is diminished), you remember the Infinite Light and its Source, pondering whether it is worth to continue further the down spiraling path. Now, many of you are all at the very threshold where you must make an important decision:

Do you want to go further down into the forgetfulness of your Divinity, or do you wish to return to your true Divine Nature? This is the decision you must make NOW. Because the state of your world shows that you haven´t yet made a clear choice.

There is not much time left to delay your answer to this question. You had plenty of opportunities and experiences to come to your conclusion.

Perhaps you are a bit afraid to return to the mere ecstasy of light because you had explored it already so well, and perhaps you are thinking you might be bored to return to this State (laughs), deprived of your many toys you have become addicted to, meanwhile.

But in any case, you must make your decision now. If you decide for the light, please know that this decision comes with rules:

It requires to set the intent to exercise exclusion of darkness as a given reality in your mind from now on. Why? Because with every thought that believes in darkness in any form, you are re-enforcing it. You are re-enforcing your self-identification with an imagined victimhood, instead of knowing that you have been always a creator god.

In any moment from now on, if you decide for the light, you must exercise your creative powers, not looking at what is, or seems to be, but looking in any moment at new, infinite Divine possibilities instead, – and choosing accordingly.

This is your new irrevocable responsibility from now on in order to change your experience of this world and to change it into a new adventure.

You see, boredom will not await you in the realms of light, as it might have hassled you before. But you will return to the light with new divine-creator powers that are one with the depth of All-Embracing Divine Love, a power you never were able to accomplish before to such a degree!

You will be given the opportunity to participate, from now on, in the glory of Divine Evolution that serves the inspiration and exaltation and expansion of Divine Creation.

What an excitement is awaiting you! Wake up, my dears, and be aware of the Divine Gift that is now being given to you. Not only be aware of it, but use it. Use it for the sake of planetary awakening, freedom, and happiness. Use it for the sake of brotherhood and a united humanity.

NOW is the time to decide where you want to go. Divine Creator Powers of Love are waiting for you, if you follow the Light. This is the moment where your evolution is truly beginning. And it has never been given to you in such a glory before.

So I am sure you will choose wisely.

My Blessings and my Love are with you!

I am Mahavatar Babaji!

BRANDON WEST – When Genius Calls – The Six Qualities of an Extraordinary Life – 6-1-15

Brandon West  

When Genius Calls   –   The Six Qualities of an Extraordinary Life

*

It is my intention to achieve and maintain a state of balance, bliss, love, rapture, inspiration, and peace; in essence, to live from a higher state of energy.

I believe that this is the ultimate desire of every human being. Regardless of the specifics of the desires and dreams that an individual may have, who among us does not desire for these qualities to infuse our lives?

Therefore the question isn’t if this is what we want or not, because of course it is. The question is how do we attain these six qualities of an extraordinary life?

Acting On Our Creative Desires
It is common, when working towards personal transformation or spiritual practice in general, to assume that habits are the source of these energies in our lives. And to a degree it is true, because when we act in alignment with our genuine self and calling our energy is realigned with Spirit and we become available for heightened states of awareness/energy.

But I have also found that our actions and our thoughts stem from these heightened states even more powerfully than our thoughts and actions are able to produce them.

Therefore it is important to understand the need for balance between action and stillness; between our habits and between simply surrendering and connecting. For it is precisely our insatiable tendency towards always acting, always needing something to be going on, always needing to be distracted by something, that has created these problems for us in the first place.

What I have seen with myself is that when I focus on writing, which is a passion of mine, I achieve all of these states naturally and organically. But it is not just the act of writing itself which helps me personally access this higher state of energy (higher in relative terms according only to my own experience). Of equal importance is the initial impulse to write and the state of connection that is conducive to allowing for and acting on this desire to write.

In the same way that everyone who has ever established an exercise regimen or a yoga practice can tell you, a large part of the difficulty of the continued practice is not just in the actual practice itself. Because we know that so long as we start we are usually guaranteed to compete the session or routine.

The difficulty is in overcoming the fixed course of our internal dialogue which is resistant to this new practice or habit or way of being, and making that internal shift necessary to act on that desire. In other words, overcoming that mental obstacle that is the only thing separating us from acting on our desires and our calling even.

We all have ideas and desires that are powerful and spontaneous – which are truly inspired – but we delay acting on them simply because the fixed course of our internal dialogue takes us in a different, but entirely routine direction. This occurs because our mental and energetic framework is out of alignment with this infinite awareness and powerful force that exists within us.

So the most direct way to change our lives isn’t necessarily to begin establishing new habits hoping that they will raise our level of consciousness, but rather to realign our energy and our attention to connect to this higher level of consciousness and allow our actions and habits to be a spontaneous expression of the higher consciousness that we are already at.

The key then is to synchronize with this force and to establish an open line of communication between this higher consciousness or higher self as it is sometimes called, and our actions. And it is this state which results in the spontaneous and natural embodiment of bliss, balance, love, rapture, inspiration, and peace – the six qualities of an extraordinary life.

Removing Distractions
Now the best practice that I know of to access this higher consciousness and overcome the fixed course of our internal dialogue is the practice of silence. Not meditation specifically, but simply silence: being silent, sitting quietly, observing, not doing anything, but simply allowing our awareness to expand in this silence and becoming open and available to the descent of Spirit and the impulses of intention. In other words, allowing yourself to maintain a state of silence in order to become inspired to do what you know you desire to do.

The effect that this has is that it disrupts our internal dialogue by bringing it into the realm of our conscious mind. So often we go through our lives on autopilot because we are engaged (distracted) by the routine and regular flow of our daily lives.

The downside however is that once our internal dialogue becomes sub-conscious, then it influences us and guides our actions subconsciously. Now that is not really an issue if you are living your dream and your doing what you love every day. However if you are not, then it is your internal dialogue which is subconsciously determining your thoughts, attitudes, emotions, behaviors, and actions and manifesting more of the same into your life.

But between each and every one of our thoughts is an infinite awareness which has inherent within it all of the six qualities of an extraordinary life which I have outlined above. And it is there, ever present, between each of our thoughts. Yet most of us are not living from that space of unlimited and uplifting energy, and are instead caught up in the current of our internal dialogue and in the drama of our lives which it is ultimately repeating again and again until we break free.

And while meditation is a direct and effective method of shutting off the internal dialogue, or at least interrupting it so that silence can infuse our lives with these qualities for a time (the length of which increases by degrees as you practice), we also need to do this same thing within our lives as well.

We need also to find this silence on another level in order to translate our inspiration and our ideas into our lives and into the world. So in the same way that it is important to interrupt the incessant internal dialogue of our minds in order to create space for creativity, inspiration, and transformation, we also need to do so on another level: the daily routines of our lives.

Our lives and our daily routines are the manifestation of our internal dialogue. So, as hard as it may be to accept, your life is a projection of your internal reality. Therefore just as it is important to create space in our minds for inspiration and such to come through, it is also important to create space in our lives to translate some of that new energy into action so that we can make direct changes to our lives, and so spontaneous inspired action can come through as well.

Overcoming Procrastination
So next time you find yourself procrastinating doing something that you know you want to do, and enjoy doing, try creating space and just being silent. Much of the time when we are procrastinating acting on our inspirations and our heart centered desires, it is because the are not a part of our habitual energetic alignment and corresponding internal dialogue.

Therefore while sitting in front of the T.V. and guiltily knowing that we would rather be [meditating/writing/reading/whatever it is that you like to do], it takes a lot of effort to shift right from that deeply ingrained habit to something else. So instead of trying to do that, simply commit yourself to sitting in silence for a bit.

Instead of turning off the TV to get up and run or meditate or whatever, simply commit to turning off the television and going somewhere quiet to sit for a little bit. This is much less of a shift and a commitment, thus it is easier to do. Yet when you enter into silence and create space in this fashion something truly magical happens.

The longer that you sit for, even if it is just 15 minutes, you will find yourself slowly and naturally actually wanting to do what before seemed like such an enormous task. And all it takes is that little time of silence, because as soon as silence is established and our attention is no longer directed at something which is very distracting, then our energy begins to realign with ourselves – our genuine self and higher self – and our mental dialogue changes accordingly, and the urge to act in alignment with this new and higher energy begins to guide us.

This is all such a natural process, and for this reason it is not only useful for overcoming our mental obstacles to acting upon our passions and our inspiration, it is also essential for discovering our passion and our calling. Because once we get into this space, whatever desires compel us into action are automatically in tune with who we are at a much deeper level.

Creating Space In Your Life
Therefore in your day, apart from your meditation practice, I encourage you to cultivate space. You could start your day off with a silence, or simply take a few minutes in between task to see what you are inspired to do in that moment, or you could use silence to shift into a higher state so that you can pierce the veil between you and higher consciousness as I suggested above. The length of time is irrelevant. Just long enough to center yourself in a place where you feel good, and feel good about what you are doing and how you are using your time.

This space is time when you are not meditating, or reading a book, or doing yoga, or eating, or cooking, or exercising, but simply being. And if you create this space every day, then eventually a time will come when you find yourself spontaneously inspired into action. This is the effect desired and it is guaranteed if you are consistent in your practice of creating space.

The famous musician David Crosby (of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young) had a practice where he would leave a space of an hour open every day where he would sit and wait for lyrics to come. He wouldn’t coax them to come, he would just sit and wait. And sometimes a tune would spontaneously appear in his mind and he would write it down, but if it didn’t, then he wasn’t stressed and he would sit patiently in silence all the same and simply wait, ideally without expectations.

Franz Kafka had a similar observation:

“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”

And in this space we become available for this force that is behind us at higher levels of our awareness to come through and create and to express the truest essence of ourselves. And one day we may learn to live from this force in each moment of our lives and have it guide our every action and endeavor, our creativity, our choices, spontaneously and correctly because this guidance is in the most perfect alignment with who we really are and with the universe that it is possible to achieve. Because these actions emanate through us from our higher consciousness which is at the level of universal consciousness itself.

Ultimately we can live from this force in every moment of our lives. For many of us our lives are obstructing this force, but that statement is not exactly true. What is really occurring is that we are obstructing this force working through us, and our minds are simply a reflection of this internal obstruction.

To change this is a simple yet consistent process akin to the practice of yoga. Through yoga we enter poses that unblock energy that has been either trapped or become stagnant within us, and by doing so it increases the flow of energy within our body (by removing these blocks) but also by helping us to align with and connect to universal energy which, over time, begins to flow throughout our bodies and animate us on a much higher frequency, as it is meant to. For we are cosmic, spiritual, universal, or galactic beings. Whichever word resonates most closely with you.

We are the focal point of infinite, universal consciousness, and our bodies and our individuality is a projection of that consciousness. And that consciousness is accessible within us all and is an immeasurable and enormous force that is waiting to act through each of us to accomplish and manifest all that we already desire to be and become.

We only need to awaken to this higher consciousness and come into alignment with it. And through us it will work miracles exactly in alignment with who we knew we were and could become all along, and yet in ways beyond what we could imagine.

So just like in the practice of yoga, all that we need to do is practice creating space in our lives, and then from this space the true expression of ourselves – and much higher energy/consciousness – emanates. And it gradually unblocks the energy that is stagnant in our lives, thereby restructuring our lives, as it guides us (our energy) into new actions, new habits, new thoughts, new emotions, new experiences, new relationships, and possibly even to new paths altogether.

Realizing An Extraordinary Life
About 80% of people dislike what they do every day, and this is why, because they never create the space for their true nature to come through and inspire them to a new course of action and to a new path that is their true calling. And this would spontaneously and irreparably break that daily routine that presently defines them, but which really distorts and imprisons them because it obstructs their true nature and their true purpose.

To a degree we are imprisoned by our actions and our habits because so much of the time they are arbitrarily chosen from our habitual internal dialogue instead of from higher consciousness and a place of inspiration. Or we simply repeat what we did yesterday because that’s is how we learned to live, behave, think, feel and act when we were young, even though it didn’t satisfy us then nor is it bringing us closer towards our dreams. And sometimes we become so stuck in our ways and our routines and there is no outside force that is acting upon us which will dislodge our routines and set us on a new path towards self-realization and self-actualization of the deepest dreams and most enormous power that is lying at wait within each and every one of us.

Creating space, both through meditation and through a literal space in our daily lives, opens us up to just such a force. Except that force is really an internal force, and it is higher consciousness. And when we become available for higher consciousness by creating space and allowing for it, then our actions truly change because instead of working towards bliss, balance, inspiration, exhilaration, and enthusiasm, we live from it.

All our actions are then infused with these energetic/emotional qualities because those qualities where what inspired that action. This is precisely what Wayne Dyer meant when he said:

“There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.”

Your thoughts, emotions, and actions determines your life. Of that there is no question. But your habits alone are not the most important thing. Establishing habits for the sake of establishing them and because you think they will get you to where you desire to go is not the most effective course of action and it probably won’t work.

Instead strive to achieve higher consciousness and then create space for this higher consciousness to spontaneously inspire you to a course of action. And when you get in this universal creative flow, all the bonds of your life will be broken and you will find yourself living an extraordinary life and experiencing the six qualities of an extraordinary life at levels you never thought where possible for you.

Just like in yoga however, this is a gradual process. And it is one which will take place over a period of time, therefore it requires your commit to it. Your life will not change in a day. But if you begin to open up to higher consciousness, this new energy will begin to slowly and incrementally infuse your life and help you to express your energy in such a way that unblocks the energetic blocks and stagnant energy in your life to allow energy to flow as it is directed where it needs to be directed for you to grow.

You too can achieve these six qualities of balance, bliss, love, rapture, inspiration and peace. It is your birthright, and it is in your very nature to live from these emotions. Indeed it is your fundamental nature. And to do so, above all other potential habits, establish the daily practice of silence. And when inspiration calls, when genius whispers to you in the space between your thoughts, listen to it.

Robert Piper – Nine Powerful Life Lessons From Studying With A Monk – 5-18-15

Nine Powerful Life Lessons From Studying With A Monk  in5d in 5d in5d.com www.in5d.com http://in5d.com/ body mind soul spirit BodyMindSoulSpirit.com http://bodymindsoulspirit.com/By Robert Piper, Thanks to Body Mind Soul Spirit.

When I was 18 years old, I suffered from anxiety and stomach problems. A compassionate physician and practicing Buddhist referred me to a Taoist monk who specialized in meditation and martial arts. I ended up  healing myself of anxiety and stomach issues by doing meditation, and went on a great  journey of self-discovery.

Here are 9 lessons I learned while studying with a monk:

1. Keep trying until you get it right.

The most important life lesson I learned was trying something three times (maybe even four times) before you stop trying and  move on. Also, this monk taught me that, even after multiple tries, you should work on different angles to approach things that are difficult.

If you keep trying, you’ll eventually get where you’re going.

2. The answer to your question is inside of you.

As part of the original monastery training, a monk didn’t answer direct questions from a student unless it was a well thought-out question. A Chinese proverb says, “Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.”

Some forms of Zen Buddhism use a very similar style of training.  An old saying (by Taoist monks) goes like this: “In making a four corner table, the teacher shows the student how to make one corner. It’s the student’s job to figure out how to make the other three.”

They did this because they were preparing a student to deal effectively with problems in the real world.

I traveled to South Korea one time, and I found it fascinating how much you have to rely on your intuition when you don’t speak the native language of a country. I remember one instance, I had trouble explaining to the cab driver where my hotel was, and he didn’t speak English. So I had to get out of the cab and ask several people until I could find someone to tell the cab driver in Korean how to get to my hotel.

In life, whenever we try new things, we have to go into new places with only a small amount of information. The real world doesn’t give us all the answers. The greatest teacher is inside of us.

3. Real wisdom in life comes from doing something and failing.

Prior to starting meditation, I used to get upset when I’d try something and fail.

I’ve been in sales since I was sixteen. I remember going to work and getting so angry with myself because I didn’t get a sale. If I ever got rejected, I’d get upset with myself, and I’d want to quit my job. But I just keep failing over and over—until I became good at it.

I remember, when I first  started doing meditation, I ran into several problems. For example, at first it was difficult to calm down; but if you stick with it, its gets easier and easier. I tried for only a few minutes, and then every day, I added more time onto my meditation.

When we struggle, we learn about ourselves and what we need to do to become stronger.

4. When you start to do meditation you recognize the egotistical mind.

Everything in the ego’s world is the result of comparing. I  compared myself to other  salesmen and would blame myself because I wasn’t making as much money as them.

When I started doing meditation, I began to build separation from this egoistical mind, which is consistently making these comparisons. A lot of us try something and get rejected, so we give up. Even worse, we blame ourselves for a long time and get depressed. When I started to do meditation, I began to identify my ego and was able to build separation from it.

That’s what happens when we meditate: We separate from the part of ourselves that dwells on comparisons, and start learning to live a life that isn’t driven by our egos.

5. We must be both compassionate and resilient.

The monk wouldn’t meet with me to train unless I called him a minimum of three times. I hated this part. I used to call and call and he would never answer. But this is how life is. How many times do you have to call or email someone to get something done in the real world? It’s usually several times.

Most of us blame ourselves when we try once to do something and fail. At the time, I hated this part of the training, but now I think it was the most important life lesson.

There’s a Taoist proverb that says, “Cotton on the outside, steel on the inside.”

It reminds us to be compassionate, but not weak.

6. Patience is a virtue.

The monk always made me wait—and I dreaded this.

For example, when I got to his house to train, he’d make me wait for a minimum of a half-hour, sometimes longer. We’d go out to dinner on Friday nights and he’d show up at the restaurant an hour late.

He’d tell me to meet him at a particular restaurant at 7:00. I’d get there and find out that he wasn’t there. So I’d usually be sitting in the restaurant by myself fumbling with my phone, acting like I was texting someone, while worrying about what everyone at the restaurant was thinking about me.

Keep in mind, it’s not like I could call him; I don’t think the guy ever turned his cell phone on. Then he’d show up at about 8:15 and act like nothing happened.

His first question was always, “How’s your mother and father?” (Of course in my head I’m thinking, “What do you mean, ‘How’s my mother and father?’ I just waited here for an hour and fifteen minutes.”)

But after a few years of this, it never bothered me; and not only that, it spread to every area of my life. Because of this training, I can honestly say that I very rarely get upset about anything. I never get agitated anymore when I have to wait in a long line or when someone cuts me off on the highway.

Patience is the gift of inner calm.

7. Detach from your ego.

At first, it’s hard to sit at a restaurant by yourself. You’re constantly worrying, thinking that people probably think you’re a loser because you’re sitting by yourself. But the reality is, you will never be happy if you care about what people think you!

Prior to starting meditation, I’d get upset over just about anything. Now, nothing really bothers me. Recently, I was in the airport and there was a several hour delay on my flight. I just used that time to do meditation. Ten years ago, I would have become extremely upset. An airplane delay would have ruined my day.

When you let go of your ego needs, it’s easier to accept and even benefit from whatever comes at you.

8. In Taoism, they say, “No self, No enemy.”

It’s the enemy within that causes all of our fears, worries, and insecurities. If you come to terms with this enemy within, it will impact every area of your life. It’s the identification with the “self/ego” that causes all of life’s problems.

How many times do we not go for something because of fear? Think about all the fears that we have conjured up in our minds that stop us from being truly happy. If you can conquer the enemy within yourself, you won’t have an enemy outside yourself.

9. Happiness  come from within, and also comes from outside.

I learned this from observing the Buddhist Physician I met. He used to do meditation in his office before he would interact with his patients. He was one of the happiest and most compassionate people I’ve ever met.

By  creating happiness inside, he was able to increase that emotional state by spreading it to others.

We must cultivate happiness from within, and work to spread it around to everyone we interact with. The monk used say, “Everyone has a purpose or a mission in life.”

We have to find happiness within, and also find our purpose on the outside.

YOU KNOW – THE COUNCIL via RON HEAD – 5-4-15

Why are you here? What are you here for? What should you be doing?

These are the questions you always, always ask us. Do you ask because you are truly lost? No, you ask because, deep in your heart, you know. You know that you came here for a reason.

“But I don’t know the reason” you say. Well, actually you do. And what is popping up before you in your life is what you have decided to work on. It is there for one or more of several possible reasons. It may be the principle reason for your being here. It may be something that you have agreed to clear before you begin working on your principle goal. It may something you have agreed to work on for mankind’s benefit. It may include aspects of all of these.

The one thing that is invariably true is that it will continue to appear before you in various guises until you have handled it. It is also true that once you have awakened to your purpose, agreed to do what is before you today, and simply set out to move forward on this path, you will discover that it gives you a happy feeling of satisfaction. You begin to draw into your life things that bring you more and more joy and satisfaction. You begin to see possibilities that never occurred to you before.

So here is the apparently ‘hidden’ truth. Your path, that elusive thing that you have searched and searched for, is the path you are on. It is only hidden because you have hidden it. And you have hidden it so that you could ‘find’ it. There is an aspect of you, the very largest part of who you are, that never forgets, that never doesn’t know, and that always works with us to see that you are exactly where you need to be, for yourself and for the ALL. And you have a self-correcting guidance system. Did you know that?

Your guidance system is not in your pocket and you can’t leave home without it. Most of you still don’t know about it, or know about it and forget to use it all too often. We tell you this over and over again. We tell you many things over and over again. We find infinite ways to dress up simple truths in order to keep you on track and to inform those of you who are just awakening. That’s our job. So where is this guidance system?

It’s in your heart. That is not news, is it? News flash! Just do what feels good and right for you. Notice we did not say to do what anyone else says is right for you. We did not say to find it in a book. You will know because you know. You will know because you know. You will know because you know. But you will not know if you do not value what you know. You will not know if you doubt what you know. You will not know if you do not listen to what you know.

So what to do now? We suggest that you may want to begin with a game of ‘what if?’ What if all of the things that councils and guides and angels and teachers have been telling me over and over are true? What if I really am a divine being? What if I really do know? What if I really can? What if I always have been? What if the time really is now? What will I do today if I know it really will matter?

Because, dearest friend, they are, you are, you do, you can, and you always have. It is. And we promise you, what you do really does matter. You can suffer that or you can have fun with that. You choose. That’s another thing that is unavoidably true. You choose. Spend some time watching a toddler choose. Then go out and have fun with that. Because you can.

Good day.

Stevie P – Reveal Your Life’s Purpose by Asking These 15 Questions – 4-30-15

Reveal Your Life’s Purpose by Asking These 15 Questions  in5d in 5d in5d.com www.in5d.com http://in5d.com/By Stevie P, From In5D.com, April 29, 2015

You came here for a reason, didn’t you?

You can feel it in the depths of your being.

Your life is inconceivably meaningful. You arrived on Earth for a purpose. What that purpose is, you have to uncover (and create) yourself. It’s an epic quest from cradle to grave, and that’s what makes life worth living.

There is a deep yearning within everyone for that deep-seated sense of purpose. When people know what it is, they become an unstoppable force. Absolutely nothing can stand between them and the manifestation of their destiny.

How do you reveal your life’s purpose? I can’t tell you exactly how, as it’s incredibly distinct from person-to-person, but I can provide you with the tools for you to guide yourself along your journey. And your purpose isn’t static either. It may very well change and evolve throughout the course of your life. Heraclitus hit the nail on the head when he said “No man steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”

Ask… And you shall receive…

Here are 15 questions to ask yourself, which will set you in the direction of your life’s purpose:

1. What gives me energy?
Activities that align with your purpose will energize you. On the other hand, activities that don’t resonate with your essence will drain you. Be aware and use your energy level as a guide.

2. What excites me?
This is a better question than the lukewarm “What am I passionate about?” Excitement is easily discernible for anyone. And the funny thing is that you find out what you’re passionate about simply by being mindful of what excites you.

“The question you should be asking isn’t, “What do I want?” or “What are my goals?” but “What would excite me?”
Tim Ferriss

3. What kind of ideas come to me in the shower?
The shower is probably the most relaxing part of your day-to-day life. Inspiration strikes when you’re relaxed, as that’s when you’re most receptive. So be aware of what kind of inspiration comes to you while you’re gettin’ so fresh and so clean.

4. What kind of things do people always ask me about?
What kind of advice do others seek from you? This is indicative of the value you can potentially provide to the world at large.

5. What kind of conversations do I have with those closest to me?
What subject matter do you immerse yourself in with loved ones? What information do you share with the people you care about most? What do you talk about when you’re being your true self?

6. What do I do with my free time?
Actions dictate where priorities lie.

7. What topics do I regularly read about?
An obvious way to shine light on your biggest interests.

8. What recurring dreams do I have?
The themes of your dreams will reveal a lot about your subconsciousness. Search the meaning of dreams to get a better grasp on the esoteric wisdom being conveyed.

9. During which experiences in my life have I felt the most alive?
A different spin on following your excitement.

10. What unique interests, or abilities, did I have as a young child?
If your memory is fuzzy, ask your parents for more clarity. This question will reveal a lot about your inherent abilities and your interests prior to societal conditioning.

11. What would I be doing if money were no object?

12. What would I be doing if I absolutely, 100%, did not care about what other people think?
Like the question about money, it’s important to ask yourself what you would be doing if there were no limitations. If you were completely free, what would you do?

13. What is on my bucket list?
What is most important to you? What things, when achieved, will create that deep sense of fulfillment within you? These will most certainly guide you toward your purpose.

14. What topics can I blend together to create my own unique niche?
How can you commix multiple subjects to create your own unique mosaic of life? A great example that James Altucher used was someone who loves both basketball and statistics. If they don’t make it to the NBA (which will be the vast majority of people), they can blend their interests of basketball and statistics to create their own unique amalgamation of mastery.

15. If I were to write a short (1-2 sentence) “About Me”, describing the ideal version of myself, what would it be?

I’ve been asking myself these questions repeatedly for some time now. What have they revealed so far? Well, all signs point to writing and poetry being a major part of my life purpose (for this chapter of my life, at least). Why? Because I’m fascinated by the intricacies of the English language. I also have a sick obsession with super-lyrical hip-hop (like this) and a burning desire to read, like all of the books in the world are about to get the Library of Alexandria treatment.

Plus, the act of writing itself excites me. That’s why I’m able to practice every day, sparking new ideas and catalyzing continuous improvement. Combine that with my vast array of additional interests (health, fitness, spirituality, meditation, philosophy, psychology, self-improvement, history, lifehacking, hiking, travel and cooking, to name a few) and I have a staggering stockpile of raw material to distill into digestible poetry and prose. I figured out that everything I enjoy “absorbing” contributes to the skill of writing. So that’s why I do what I do.

Consistently ask yourself these revelatory questions and you will uncover your life purpose, as well as help bring it to fruition.

With more power than your mind conceives
You came here for a reason
You are a healer, believe
Earth is calling for a new season
Instate this miraculous age
Create a spectacular page
In the book of love and life
Lightheartedly rise above the strife
For your essence is essential
Please, step into your true potential

Have fun on your quest called life.

Phillip J. Watt – Growth is the Purpose of Life – 4-23-15

gr0wth

By Phillip J. Watt, The Mind Unleashed, April 22, 2015

The aim of this article is to illustrate why growth is fundamental to the universe we inhabit, as well as show how it is applicable to not just the individual human, but also our collective species. Yet the title generates several difficult questions. For starters, what is life? What about purpose? What does it mean to grow?

These are all challenging concepts to define, especially because there are different variations and perceptions of what they are. Yet it’s not impossible to get a general ‘feel’ for what they mean, so let’s have a crack at it.

Life

Life is usually defined as plants and animals, however scientists and philosophers haven’t even come up with a proven or clear definition of what life is and why it manifests out of inert material. This thinking leads to questioning where the line is, or even more mind-blowing, whether there is a line at all.

For example, why can a plant be ‘alive’, but not a rock? At what point does matter come to life? Experts have deliberated over these questions for centuries, and sorry to disappoint, but there is not yet a satisfactory or universally accepted answer.

So, let’s reframe the question. Humans might be one of the few creatures on planet earth that are self-aware, but we can safely assume that animals have their own style of consciousness. This means our understanding of life usually corresponds to some form of ‘awareness’, because life, including plants, has a tendency to take action relative to the world around it. Bacteria and viruses have this same characteristic too.

This then begs the question; because the molecules and cells of plants and animals ‘respond’ to their environmental stimuli, does that make them aware?

Are atoms, which also behave according to their external conditions, conscious too?

If every layer of material reality potentially has its own form of awareness, regardless of how primordial it may be, is the entire universe conscious? Is it also then, alive?

Purpose

We all want to have some sort of meaning to our lives and to leave a legacy for our future generations. Some of us embrace it through a metaphysical view and others create it through a pragmatic view. Some do both.

Regardless, to have a purpose is to have a mission that one is living or achieving. What though, is the mission? Who or what determines it? Why must there be a mission in the first place? Do we even have to be conscious of the mission that we have?

One of the primary purposes of animals and plants is to reproduce. Most forms of life need an ingredient from another kind of its species to achieve this, but life that only requires itself will still epigenetically mutate because of the impact of its environment. Growth has occurred, either by way of sharing genes or mutating them.

So when we look at the process of evolution, we immediately recognize its fundamental urge to grow, even if most of the species doing it are not ‘conscious’ of that mission. In this sense, life has an inherent purpose to grow. But what about a conscious purpose, such as that of a human who, for example, believes their purpose is to love and provide for their family?

When we look at this example, it is obvious that they want to not just love and provide, but also develop their love and what they provide for their family. They wouldn’t want to decrease it, would they? In this example, therefore, growth is also integral to achieving the purpose they have attributed to their lives.

Growth

Let’s take a look at the natural growth that has occurred in the universe.

In a physiological sense, all elements were created by the fusion of the two fundamental elements; hydrogen and helium. In addition, molecules are the result of chemical reactions which continue to form more complex compounds. Cells, which are arguably an initial form of biological consciousness, also change by responding to their environmental stimuli. All of these processes reflect a natural tendency for the universe to grow.

In addition, life has evolved into a plethora of plant and animal species. Naturally, life grew. But what if we consider the particular aspects of a species, or the species as a whole, such as humans?

For starters, our culture, technology, knowledge, language and population have grown. We have also become more creative. On an individual level, the development of our emotional, psychological, philosophical and intellectual capacities, since our birth, appears as a natural endeavor, as long as challenging life circumstances, such as systemic, cultural and individual dysfunctions, don’t impede that process.

Therefore, growing not just physically, but internally, is clearly a natural thing for us to do. However, given that the ways in which we are meant to grow are relative to each individual, it is up to each of us to figure out what that is in each ongoing moment. For example, we might need to focus more on emotional development than intellectual development, or we might need to prioritize managing our anger over developing our empathy.

In any case, if we accept that we are a conscious life form that has an inherent purpose to grow, on many different levels, then we have the responsibility to facilitate and amplify it ourselves. The beauty is of course, that there is never an end to how far we can develop whom we are, which reminds us of Heraclitus’ famous saying: the only constant is change.

Final Thoughts

If we consider what would be one word for the meaning of life, “growth” is a strong candidate because it is a simple rationale for all the turbulent change that this incarnation brings us. Making the most of it seems a reasonable and smart approach.

From this introspection it becomes apparent that we need to fully embrace who we are in each moment – for all our strengths and flaws – and strive to expand the heart and mind to the best of our ability. Learning the tough lessons and reinforcing them when they pop up again will obviously bring some developmental benefits. The challenges that life offers might invariably be difficult, however there’s nothing wrong with failing at times and aiming to be successful the next.

Even though personal development can bring so much variety, adventure and love to our life, it can also bring loss. It is awesome in some ways and not in others. Yet there’s no point having regrets; if we simply view our commitment to grow as an experience of discovery, wonder and embracing ourselves with all our human imperfections, we continue to become a more genuine version of ourselves and encounter new and exciting pathways to take.

Ultimately, life is a mysterious adventure of growth and not even an egoic death can end our energy.

Chris Bourne – Right Action – The Path of Light – 4-17-15

Open

Chris Bourne

How do we create the lives that best serve us?
We are still frequently being asked about our thoughts on manifestation: how do we create the lives that best serve us? From our perspective, in true authenticity, it is not a case of manifesting by mind led intention, rather we tune into our higher self, align with the natural energetic flow of the moment and simply allow creative “Right Action” to unfold as a natural expression of who we really are. So if you’re not completely content with the circumstances of your life and you’re interested in creating a more harmonious one, you might be interested in reading this point of view.

*

Consciousness creating reality

It is not just our thoughts that create our reality, it would be more accurate to say our entire consciousness creates it – the sum total of what we are being and expressing through ALL our bodily vehicles of expression. Herein lies the problem when we try to manifest a particular reality; all too often the ego or small “I” is trying to do it. In other words we are trying to make choices based on our conditioned behaviours, our hopes and desires or alternatively as a result of our worries and fears.

For example, we feel insecure so we try to manifest a better paid job; we’re uncomfortable being alone so we try to manifest a partner; we’re not happy with our house so we effort to get a better one.

This are all hopes, wishes and desires of the ego, the personality – the small “I”. They are based on controlling thought forms prevalent in our society and conditoned behaviours – fixed neural pathways in the brain generated from our upbringing. However this is only a fraction of our consciousness. Our unique expression of divinity is the soul. We came here to connect with our soul, reintegrate it fully into our lives and allow it complete freedom of expression so that it may glorify our true beingness.

*

In the groove

Authentic creation happens spontaneously in the moment flowing downwards as energy from our higher self – the highest aspect of the soul closest to the source. When we are truly aligned with this, our creative action happens as one with the natural flow of the Universe – the whole Universe is creating in harmony with us. We may call this “Right Action”. It feels like we are completely ‘in the groove’ so to speak – we align to a natural rhythm in life which is blissful and magical to behold.

What gets in the way of Right Action in our lives are all our conditioned behaviours. So as the soul flows through the bodymind, the energy is distorted, fragmented and dimmed. Since our reality is created from what we are being within, this inner turmoil is reflected through our outer lives and as a result, frequently we manifest mayhem! When we realise this, often it seems we may try to create an inner focus by holding a particular vision or intention. This may work for a while, but it is contradicting the natural flow of the Universe and our destined unfolding within it. Ultimately this illusionary vision will break down.

The soul is awesomely okay with all circumstances. It has no particular needs, wants or desires. It has no fear of a particular pathway or outcome. Its purpose is to simply unfold its unique way of being. Our challenge is to align with this sense of centredness, completeness and immortality. The destiny of the soul is to take us into all those circumstances where we do not have this inner peace. In other words, we create on the outside circumstances that reflect our inner state of consciousness. Every single circumstance and moment of our lives presents this continually updating mirror saying “this is what you are now being, does that serve you?” In other words, are you being guided by the soul or the personality? from a sense of completeness or a sense of lack?

*

Absolute authentic reality

If what we are being feels right, we feel aligned with what we know to be the absolute authentic reality of the moment – that which transcends everyone’s expectations, desires or perceived needs. If we feel totally authentic in this way, then my advice would be to keep on doing that AT WHATEVER APPARENT PERSONAL COST (even your death!). If on the other hand, we create circumstances that make us feel tight and uncomfortable inside, we might then ask “To what am I attached? What particular outcome or experience do I think I need? What am I afraid of from this circumstance?”

“The act of creating is the act of allowing.
In looking within, we see past the distortions of the ego
to find what is meant to be.
When we know what is meant to be,
we become as one with the divine will…
the inner most longing of our highest self;
we become an open channel and
infinite potential is manifested through us,
and through us, the infinite cycle is complete.”

    Openhand

If we keep watching all our motivations for action from the place of the Observer of ourselves, then over time we will begin to realise our attachments within the drama of life. The we can begin to let them go by softening into the tightness they create, and then expressing our higher truth – the purest expression of the true nature we can feel. In which case the distorted behaviour patterns that have arisen from our attachments will dissolve and we’ll become ever more comfortable in our own skin. We’ll align with the authenticity of our soul and this greater harmony will be reflected outwards into our daily lives

*.

Being IS the change

The important thing to note is that we do not have to manifest or effort to create the lives that best serve us. Our destined reality unfolds – like a path of light – before us as a direct consequence of us connecting with and expressing our highest truth…

Sierra Roberts – FAREWELL REINCARNATION! – 3-31-15

Sierra Roberts

One of the best things about Ascension is rarely discussed amongst lightworkers. We won’t be re-incarnating on third-dimensional Earth any more. Yippee!

We have been re-incarnating on the Earth plane for millennia for our spiritual evolution. Also, lightworkers have been working undercover for much of that time to help humanity ascend. It has been a wild ride, and we now limp wearily to the finish-line.

My own re-incarnation cycle on Earth has been on the long side: one thousand lifetimes in total. I trained as a past life regression therapist and ‘re-experienced’ several of those lives.

My first life on Earth was in a cave, 25,000 years ago. When I re-experienced that life, I felt the horror of realizing I was only starting my long Earth sojourn to serve humanity. I still had awareness of my multi-dimensional self. The centuries looming ahead of me seemed endless.

Also my husband and daughter were spiritually asleep, so I was the only one ‘awake’. I felt terribly lonely, a feeling I have struggled with from that moment right up to the present time.

Other lifetimes I re-experienced included being a female mystic in Scandinavia…several lifetimes as a Native American Indian…and a monk in Japan. My most recent lifetime was as a British spy working in occupied France during World War II.

Could I be making this up? How do you explain my obsession with World War II resistance workers since I was a small child?

My mother had an extensive library of books from the ’50s. I compulsively read the war books from a very young age. In truth, I mourned for the war; I missed it. It was an adrenaline-filled time that has made ordinary life seem mundane ever since.

Oh, and let’s not forget my shark phobia. It took years of therapy for me to look at a picture of a shark without screaming. Apparently I was shark fodder in at least two lifetimes. I was terrified of sharks during childhood, yet I had never seen one.

I am pretty sure I was burned at the stake as a witch – the fate of many lightworkers during that era. Joan of Arc was my child-hood heroine. And my birth name is Lorraine, the region in France near where she grew up.

All of this has made me the person I am today – so rich for the multitude of experiences I’ve been through on the Earth plane. But it is over. Re-incarnating is not necessary anymore. Besides, one thousand lifetimes in the third dimension is enough for any multi-dimensional being.

I worked as a past-life regressionist for 18 months, regressing around 150 people during that short, intense period. One day Spirit said, ‘Enough. You are done. There is no need for past life work anymore. It is too late. That door is now shut.’

As you can imagine, my clients were not amused. I had developed a reputation for being accurate as a regressionist so people were recommending me to their friends. But I knew Spirit was right: if people had not dealt with their past life issues by that stage, there was little I could do to help them. So I quit.

Since then I’ve been regularly getting an image of the dissolution of the third dimension/reincarnation as being like the folding up of a map. It was a useful blueprint for the spiritual growth of billions of souls for millions of years. But I see myself neatly folding up the map, tucking it under my arm, and moving on…

…to my next inter-galactic adventure. Do join me!

Deus Nexus – Misunderstood Matrix of Karma, Reincarnation, Soul Contracts – 3-7-15

Cameron-Gray

By David Nova, Deus Nexus, December 11, 2014

In the last few years, a new esoteric paradigm has emerged on the internet, and on several spiritual blogs, that represent a diametrically different view of previously accepted spiritual systems and beliefs. This sea change may have started from the insights of a few select bloggers, but these new ideas quickly spread across the internet like a wildfire.

These ideas resonated with many awakened people, particularly when all the hope and hype of the Mayan calendar date (December 21, 2012) passed without incident and turned into spiritual disillusionment.  A case might be made supporting the link between the Mayan calendar disillusionment and these spiritual concepts that emerged shortly afterwards which attempted to explain why conditions on Earth are still perceived to be predominantly negative.

A House Divided

There has been a big split right down the middle of the spiritually awakened community, to the extent that the term “New Age spirituality” and previously accepted ideologies are now perceived as just another constructed religion from the dark forces to manipulate the masses, whether partially or wholly true.

Here is an imperfect description of this division: On one side of the split we have the awakened who believe that we are now living on an emerging 4th Density Earth, who still believe in clearing karma and learning soul lessons. On the other side we have the awakened who believe we’re still being held hostage by dark (and false light) forces and now believe that reincarnation and soul contracts are the tools of our enslavement. Naturally, there is some gray area in the middle.

What If I were to say that both beliefs are perfectly valid and true?

Personally, I fall into this gray area. I hold no personal judgement for either side, because I see and relate to both sides simultaneously, as strange as that may seem. I can hold two contradictory views and see the truth in both sides. This may be an aspect of my attempt to move beyond dualities. I also feel that only when we begin to view the Universe in a holistic way, as one enormous integrated Being, do we begin to come closest to the Truth of these things.

This split seemed to accelerate after the Mayan date, December 21, 2012, when a lot of folks who were rather superficially invested in spiritual awakening became disillusioned. Others who were invested in a paradigm of miraculous transformation or divine intervention felt quite understandably betrayed. Some writers ceased channeling. Others changed their direction, 180 degrees.

What then emerged from the other side of this so-called 2012 portal was an understanding of what has been termed the “False Light.” That is to say, many of the Light Forces and channeled entities who were previously worshiped for giving us the undisputed Truth have now been called into question and relabeled deceivers, or “False Light.”

I do believe there is some legitimate truth to this new understanding, however I would also warn against throwing out “the baby with the bath water” as the expression goes. Don’t mistakenly or accidentally throw out the Real Light with what is perceived as the False Light. “Some Discernment Is Required,” should be a label that you attach to every one of your beliefs, especially the ones that you find are particularly emotional.

The Dark Matrix Within the Cosmic Mind

A recent post by Anna Merkaba describes the prison of a Dark Artificial Matrix built within the construct of the Cosmic Matrix. Much like a Russian Nesting Doll, our world is made up of a series of inter-nested realities.

There is a matrix that the earth is on, which really is a system of encodings. What has happened is that another matrix was created within a matrix  by the “dark side”, human ego, reptilians, archons, etc, etc, all those who wanted to take advantage of the amnesia that humans are under in order to harness the energy from this planet.  Source

The original film “The Matrix” was instrumental in representing this holographic reality, as both a positive and a negative concept.  The Dark Matrix is one that is artificially created by parasites to enslave souls and farm their energy.  The Neutral or Cosmic Matrix is the foundation of the manifested physical Universe, it is the playground by which spirit can enter the material realms and exist as individualized, self-actualized entities. It’s creation and intent is neither evil nor good. It simply is. It’s one giant Holodeck for consciousness and spirit.  Some refer to it as a classroom.  All of it exists within the mind of God/Source.

The Dark Artificial Matrix was built within it and upon the same basic principles of the Cosmic Matrix, taking it hostage, twisting it to a dark agenda, basically creating a very dark basement inside of a bright and beautiful house. Our world is basically trapped in the basement of God’s house.

I resonate with this model, as it reflects a concept of the Universe that I’ve come to understand very well.  I’ve described this particular cosmology in great detail in my metaphysical series, “Season of the Serpent.”  In it, the warring realms of Duality, the angelic order of Yang’Ash and the demonic chaos of Yin’Dru, are part of the Dark Matrix that exists to control Earth and the Astral Plane.  However, there is a greater reality of Light beyond this dark artificial illusion. There are subtle levels of the Cosmic Matrix that allow greater freedom and consciousness, yet still allow individualization.  Without this larger Cosmic Matrix, there would be no creation and no expression of physical life… period.

However, I tend to think some people are over-generalizing, confusing, and misunderstanding the differences between these two very distinct systems. They are lumping them together into one mish-mash of misunderstanding.

The ultimate difference is that behind the Dark Matrix there is a parasitic force pretending to be God; behind the Cosmic Matrix there is only you forgetting that you are an aspect of God. Both systems use similar rules of engagement, these rules are just used for very different purposes. One pulls you down and puts you to sleep. The other helps to wake and raise you up to your true self.

By focusing upon the negative matrix, we’re focusing upon resistance and ignoring potential assistance.

It should also be noted that there is a huge difference between (1) saying you’re awake – knowing you’re an aspect of God, and (2) feeling it within every molecule of your entire Being – stretching beyond time and space. The first awakening can happen overnight. The second could take many different lifetimes to complete. It is the temporal human ego that does not comprehend this – the human ego, much like a child, much like the Illuminati, wants to be God now in this flawed, limited mortal body and mind, within this Dark Matrix. But it never will, because the world “as it is” (fallen, 3rd Density) was never designed for that expression. The frequency of our world and our DNA will need to change first.

This Confusion Over Karma, Soul Contracts, etc.

Let’s examine some of these spiritual concepts and beliefs that have been turned upside down recently.  They fall into the category of what I would call “Pre-Birth Terms and Conditions.”

Karma

Reincarnation

Soul Lessons

Soul Contracts

I’m not going to break down each one of these topics; there are plenty of  articles that explain these subjects in greater detail. Rather, I’m going to paint a general overview of the topic.

The common variable these four conditions have in common is the spiritual amnesia we are born with. Because we are born inside the Dark Matrix we are burdened from way more spiritual amnesia than we rightly should be.  We should be aware of our connection to spirit, but we’ve been robbed of that connection. Yet even under the natural laws of the Cosmic or Natural Matrix we would be born into our human bodies with some form of amnesia because we simply couldn’t handle the full memory of our multidimensional selves in this existence.  The experience would probably be like taking LSD all day, every day. We wouldn’t be able to function in this material world or appreciate the limitations of the experience. Just like when you play a video game, there are rules in place to make the experience more fulfilling – like uncertainty – you don’t know what’s going to happen.  However, the Dark Matrix took over the game and rewrote the rules to enslave our incarnations, to trap us in the game.

So this new paradigm would have us believe that all of these Pre-Birth Terms and Conditions were put in place by the parasites of the Dark Matrix. There is some of truth to this, but there is also a whole lot of fear-based distortion behind this belief as well.

Now, I’m not particularly fond of the concepts of Karma or Reincarnation. It doesn’t sit well with my ego.  The idea of signing a Soul Contract has always sounded a little silly to me.  And of course, attempting to learn a Soul Lesson is always a bitch.  But we need to ask ourselves if our objections to these concepts are perhaps emotional or ego based. Are we simply being children who refuse to clean up our own room?  Or are these beliefs really designed to keep us tied down on the energy farm? What if both situations were equally true?  It’s a strange contradictory Universe we’re living in, isn’t it.

The more you expand your understanding, the more you begin to realize that both the Light (Service-to-Others) side and the Dark (Service-to-Self) side are playing the same game, with the same rules, on the same field, but for entirely different outcomes. This is not the same as the false duality paradigm of Good vs. Evil and Order vs. Chaos which is manipulated by the Dark (Service-to-Self) side.

Our beliefs tend to keep us enslaved, whether here on Earth or on some lower plane of the after-life still controlled by some Demiurge.  We need to move beyond the belief systems and religions that keep us limited in our understanding of the Universe and our true selves, whether that be Christianity or some New Age mumbo-jumbo.  Only when we question our long-held beliefs do we experience spiritual growth.  And that’s why we are here in this incarnation, to grow beyond our limiting beliefs.

Did you know that the word religion means to bind or limit an adversary? It comes from the Latin word and verb “religare”, which means “to bind”, “to hold back”, and “to bind fast”. In magic, it is a “class of spells intended to thwart and hold back the progress of an opposing force or practitioner.”  Source

On the other hand, just because We are aspects of God doesn’t mean that we get to do whatever we damn well want any time we damn well please.  It doesn’t mean that we get to make poor decisions without consequence.  It doesn’t mean that we are free from the responsibility of our actions and creations.  It doesn’t mean that we get to hurt other aspects of God and not have to make amends for being a jerk.  This is what small children expect. This is not what responsible adults or fully conscious aspects of God expect. Thus we have burdened ourselves with the laws of Karma and Soul Contracts.

It may help to no longer think of these Pre-Birth Terms and Conditions as religious belief systems. Instead, focus on the concept of energy exchange. The negative energy that has been put into a closed system has to be balanced somehow.  You are God.  You are responsible for all of your negative energy, just as you are responsible for the mess that you make, in this lifetime and all of your previous lifetimes.  You have to clean it up  You have to balance it.  Jesus (or some extraterrestrial race) isn’t going to clean it up for you.  Jesus didn’t come down to Earth to get you out of the mess you created.  He came down to teach you to forgive yourself for making it. The only person who is going to let you off the hook is you, your inner-Christ, your real authentic self, the God within you.

Believing these contracts to be a Devil’s trap only strengthens the grip of the trap.  You’re evading   responsibility for your own creation, bottling up the negative energy of unconscious pain and shame, giving it to the darkness when it simply needs to be released to the Light.

So when I read some blogger’s dark essay obsessing about the Archons trapping souls with binding Soul Contracts and Soul Lessons, convincing them to reincarnate and work off Karma, I have to say, “So what.”  Obsessing about these things isn’t going to change it.  Exposing it is only telling half the story – a fearful story. I would remind them that, “We’ve already got an ace card in our pocket.”  Maybe it’s just too Christian for some people to accept these days, but it really is this simple.  Just forgive yourself.  Forgive others who have wronged you.  That’s how you clear Karma.  That’s how you get off the wheel of Reincarnation.  That’s how you avoid more Soul Contracts and painful Soul Lessons.  That’s how you move beyond duality. These dark entities don’t want you to forgive anything.  They want you trapped in repetitive cycles of shame and ego so they can feed off your negativity. You can’t be both fearful and forgiving – these are of opposite polarity, very different vibrations. Stop obsessing about all the darkness and just forgive. It’s not easy, but it is simple.

OK, end of sermon.

The Continued War Against Darkness

I can already hear the protests: “it’s all well and good to forgive, but more love and light wont stop the Illuminati or the Archons from taking over the planet.” Actually, I beg to differ.  Cleaning up and creating a more positive vibration will help drive the demons away. They will have nothing to feed upon.  They will at least leave you alone.  What, you thought you were immune from these parasites?  And it will also lessen the off-world inter-dimensional power of the cabal.

But yes, of course, Love and Light is not enough.  We need to keep exposing the Truth.  We need to keep fighting for healthy food, water, and skies.  We need to keep working on alternative energies.  We need to stand up to tyranny.  We need to do all of these things, and we will accomplish them with greater ease and effect when we transition from our isolated frightened ego selves to our true divine selves.

Pre-Birth Contracts of Service

There is one other type of Pre-Birth Contract that needs to be discussed that probably has a little more relevance to the people reading this post.  It’s the notion that you signed up as a volunteer light-worker (ground crew or wanderer) for this incarnation.  You’ve already cleared most or all of your Karma.  You choose to reincarnate here – you weren’t forced to return.  You signed up to complete a job, like a member of the Peace Corps, working in a foreign land.  Only, you don’t remember volunteering for anything.  You don’t remember what you came here to do.  But you know you have some purpose or some mission to complete.  You feel it deep inside.  Perhaps you are already undertaking it.  Perhaps you got a little lost.  It happens.  You needed to turn around and retrace your steps, find your footing and your confidence.

This is the hardest kind of contract, the one we freely choose as fully conscious aspects of God in our higher state.  The world doesn’t appreciate who we are or what we came to do.  The world works against us because we are unwelcome intruders.  We have come to subvert the system.  We have come to clean up our collective Karma and end the duality game.  We have come to shine our light in a very dark place. We have come to take down the Dark Artificial Matrix. We are often required to operate in faith. We are quiet ordinary heroes working behind the scenes. And sometimes it does not feel like an honor or a privilege to serve. It feels like a terrible burden.  We sometimes forget why we are here, what it’s all about, and where we come from. Raising up a planet from darkness is not easy work. We just need to remember to forgive ourselves.

James Gilliland – Message to Humanity – Resolutions for 2015

EcetiWebBanner

James GillilandJames Gilliland
1-6-14
Pray It Forward This New Years
*
This coming Sunday night there will be a full moon. It is an excellent time to re-evaluate what worked and what did not work so well in the preceding year.
*
A time to get real clear about what you want, gain the wisdom from the past and release it. Don’t carry those balls and chains into the future.
*
Rather than just focus on what you want for the new year how about a prayer for others. How about a New Years Resolution to include those in your inner circle and outer circle as well to find their way to living a loving, joyous, prosperous life. You might want to add a little universal peace into the mix.
*
I believe 2015 is going to be a year of personal responsibility along with some real hard lessons about denial. A year where the karmic backlash finds its mark on those who have acted in a way that was harmful to humanity and nature. It is going to be a year of brutal honesty where many will awaken and have the courage to not only speak their truth but act on it.

*

These are the apocalyptic years where those who lust for wealth and power at the expense of humanity and nature will have the lessons they have so cleverly evaded. There is a big difference between clever and wisdom. A clever man will use his talents and abilities to rise above the masses in self service competitively amassing wealth and power usually at the expense of others. A wise man will use his talents and abilities to serve others, empower others to reach their highest potential knowing that serving others is serving Prime Creator.
*
The Creator is omnipresent within all Creation. Serving Creation is serving self because it is creating a more loving, joyous, prosperous world in which to live. It is in alignment with unity consciousness, where the Earth is evolving too.
*
A wise man knows any gain at the expense of others is only temporary and will have karmic consequences. The vast majority of the rich and powerful have very little love or authentic friends they can trust. They are often surrounded by sucker fishes feeding off the scraps they leave behind. They are also surrounded by predators just waiting for them to slip up.
*
There is a lot of denial about karma in the world of self service yet this is usually perpetuated by the ones with the most to lose if it is an immutable law. Ufortunately for the war and disease profiteers, the enslavers it is.
*
I sat down to write out my New Years Resolutions. As I began to write many friends and family kept popping into my head that were having their challenges. I found it very hard to write about my own challenges some miniscule compared to theirs. I thought about the financial challenges with ECETI and wondered what would I do if someone donated a million dollars. As in the past I know it would go to education, healing and empowering others. Only in a much grander way. I thought about how many others I could provide the latest healing modalities for, expand the gardens to feed more people, create more housing etc.
*
I also thought about what kind of world we would live in if people actually put others first yet not denying their own well being, passing on any extra goods and services. What if we prayed for others first and acted in a way that would assist them in taking care of their needs and realizing their dream.
*
I started having flashbacks on other lives, advanced civilizations that operated under universal law, understood unity consciousness serving the Creator in all Creation. We all have these memories. We all know what to do to turn this civilization and planet around.
*
We know in our heart of hearts if we are working for the beast or in the highest and best good for humanity and the Earth. We know we cannot turn a blind eye to how our choices and actions are affecting others. In the days to come I believe we are going to see just how far down the rabbit hole of denial we have gone.
*
As I am writing this letter I am in the middle of a storm with hurricane winds. I am watching trees bend almost to the ground, listening to branches breaking and gusts of wind sounding like a freight train passing through a tunnel.
*
Yet I am at peace. I am no saint be any means nor am I infallible. Things did not always work out the way I desired yet my intentions have always been in the highest and best good of all I interact with.
As Mohammed once said,” There are no perfect men, only perfect intentions.” I know where I will go when I pass this plane through ascension or death and having already died twice and returned in this life the fear of death has lost its strangle hold. I am more focused on what I leave behind, what kind of legacy or world for the next generations. I think the next generation theme is going to be on the mind of the majority for 2014.

Dana Mrkich – Life is a Spiral, not a Straight Line – 12-29-14

 

 

Once upon a time we could be out of alignment with ourselves, out of alignment with our heart/truth/higher guidance/Source, and somehow get by. Not necessarily smoothly or healthily or comfortably all the time, but if we wanted to ignore or avoid something we somehow found a way to distract ourselves from our inner truth and highest knowing.

Now however we are dealing with a whole different ballgame. There is a distinct feeling of ‘you’re either in your flow/aligned, or you’re not’ with not much grey in between. The ‘in your flow’ moments feel fab….synchronicities happen, unexpected miracles and abundance manifest, you feel happier and lighter, there is a sense of openness and expansion.

The ‘not in your flow’ moments feel terrible, and I’m being polite with the wording there. Tightness, tension, chaos, drama, mental anguish, emotional anxiety, physical health issues, it is not a happy place to be. On many levels it is painful, and in most cases it is unnecessary pain.

I’ve had my share of both moments, and I have learned this: our experience of the moments of our life have nothing to do with what is going on outside us. I have to paraphrase Eckhart Tolle here and say that ‘the exception is for maybe 5% of the time when there truly is a devastating occurrence in our lives’. The other 95% of the time our mind is running the show with its script, totally influencing how we feel, and thus completely driving our vibration, determining what we attract, and affecting the way in which we perceive and respond to our days and lives.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot over the last week or two because I had a series of massive lightbulb moment wake up calls one after the other, all alerting me to the fact that on some level part of me has been focusing on the ‘what hasn’t been done yet’ lists, or on some issue of a situation that isn’t really an issue, only my mind is used to focusing on issues and so an issue it will find!

I have been alerted to how much this has physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted me, and how much that state in many ways became my ‘normal’.

So I sat with this thinking how can this be? How can a person who has done so much inner work, and had moments, years even, of relative inner calm, come up against what feels like was the Universe’s loudspeaker shouting: “Iceberg ahead, you have 5 seconds to turn your ship around!”

And the answer I kept receiving was: our growth and evolutionary journey is a spiral, not a straight line. We deal with things on a conscious level, as I have, and as most of you have. We move forward. Then we reach deeper and higher levels of ourselves, and we recognise and transform the subconscious stuff. We move forward. Then we reach deeper and higher levels of ourselves and we start uncovering ancestral patterns, (as is being proven by epigenetics, a scientific field of study). We release those. We move forward. Higher, deeper, forward. Higher, deeper, forward.

Over the recent years and months, high frequency energy has flooded this planet in a way it never has before in our lifetime, and it hasn’t done this here for many lifetimes before that. October and November were mammoth, and I’m sure it won’t be the last of months like that. This month it feels like we are dealing with the aftermath of a major influx of light, as we attempt to process, integrate and embody the incredible upgrades we have all received.

If you, like myself, have found yourself up to your ears in stuff you thought you had long dealt with, I hope it offers you some reprieve to remember that you are on a spiral journey, not a straight line.

In my experience, appreciation and gratitude for what is, for all you are, all you have, all you have done so far, all the love that is around you, and all you have to offer just as you are right now, has been the most effective, most rapid ‘flick switch’ tool, to get me in my zone and in my flow when I realise my mind/emotions have taken me elsewhere. The difference between being clicked on, switched on, connected, centred, whatever words you want to use – or not – is peace vs noise, clarity vs static jumble, abundant flow vs worry and ‘not enough’ type thinking.

This isn’t about getting to a point where your life is perfect, you have millions in the bank and no worries. There will always be something going on: something that needs doing or buying, a system that needs re-structuring, that’s life, that’s growth and that’s exciting! I feel that we have such high expectations for our lives and our world, especially this lifetime. And that is a really really good thing. Yet, if we set the bar for our happiness at ‘when that happens I’ll be happy’ we’re never going to be happy because there will always be new goals and new dreams to attain.

So, what is the point of this message today? I guess it is a reminder to all to take a moment (most moments if possible), to congratulate yourself on who you are today, on how far you have come, on all you have in your life right now. This doesn’t mean you just sit back where you are right now forever: rather, appreciation for what is sets up the best possible energy from which to move forward in an easeful way.

It is a reminder to not beat yourself up for not doing enough, or being enough, whether it’s regarding the small day to day domestic chores, or the big global ‘we’ve got to shift this world’ level. Say to yourself each day: I have enough time. I have enough money. I have enough space. I am enough. My wife/husband/family/friends are enough.

Finally, it is a reminder that life is a spiral not a straight line. We are going higher, deeper, forward. Higher, deeper, forward.

Lots of love, Dana x

Nicky Sutton – The Soul’s Plan – Why We Make a Life Plan Before Birth – 12-16-14

Spiritual-Awakening.net

Your soul’s plan is the life plan you likely made before birth, before your own reincarnation this time around. Your life is not predestined, it’s likely however you made a ‘soul’s plan’ or life plan before birth. That’s a set of decisions about this incarnation that lay the framework for learning and experience, for the overall purpose of spiritual progression, balancing and enlightenment.

Dr. Lissa Rankin – 10 Signs You’ve Found Your Calling – – BodyMindSoulSpirit – 12-21-14

 10 Signs You've Found Your Calling

 

by Dr. Lissa Rankin

How can you tell if you’ve found your calling? As a doctor who was called to medicine at a young age but then wound up disillusioned by the system, questioning my calling, I’ve asked myself this question a lot. It’s been a long strange trip—first leaving medicine, then feeling called back, then leaving again only to find my role in healing our broken health care system as a writer, speaker, revolutionary, and teacher of physicians.
Along the way, I’ve learned a few things about how to know whether you’re on the right track.
1. You’ll realize you’ve been training for your calling since the moment you were born.
Even the gritty things, the disappointments, the regrets, and the screw ups, they were all prepping you for what you’re now being called to do. You’ll realize that the divorce, the bankruptcy, the death of your loved one, the failure, the rejection—it was just school, teaching you the lessons your soul needed to learn in order to be who you’re being called to be.
2. Mystical things will start happening.
You might be tempted to write them off as coincidences, only they’re too perfect, too exactly-what-you-need in that particular moment, too much like miracles to call them accidents. The synchronicities will fill you with a sense of wonder, because they’re proof positive that you’re being guided, that you’re not in this alone, that Someone is moving mountains to ensure that your mission is a success.
3. When you get off course, you’ll get redirected.
Doors you longed to walk through will slam shut. If you take the wrong fork in the road, your path will be littered with barbed wire and mustard gas and dragons and sharp knives lining the path. You’ll get the hint that you’ve made a wrong turn, steering yourself off course from your date with destiny, when the journey becomes a relentless struggle. The deal will fall through. The money will run out. The mentor who’s been providing the magical gifts won’t follow you onto the wrong path. People won’t sign up. You’ll be rerouted just as magically as you were steered to your calling in the first place.
4. You’ll be guided by ease, even in the face of obstacles.
 
When you find yourself struggling to get through an obstacle-ridden forest, it can be hard to tell: is your commitment just being tested, or have you veered off course? Obstacles can be part of the growth process, the cultivation of your inner hero, a necessary part of your hero’s journey. But they can also be signs that you’ve made a wrong turn. How can you tell the difference? The guidepost you can trust is a sense of movement towards ease. If the challenges are mounting, things are getting worse, one hard struggle is piling upon the other, you’ve probably gotten seduced off-course from your true calling, and the Universe is just waiting patiently, twiddling Divine thumbs because you have free will, but never giving up faith that you’ll find your way back to your calling, which will always lead you to your own holy grail. When you’re back on track, things start to flow again.
5. Magical mentors will appear just in the nick of time.
Just when you need it most, the right people will show up, with just the tools you’ll need to support you and your journey in an almost mystical way.
6. Your health is likely to improve.
A strange but welcome side effect of finding your calling is that your health is likely to improve. You may notice fewer cravings for unhealthy foods, you’ll have more energy for moving your body, aches and pains that used to plague you might disappear, you’ll feel less tired, and chronic illnesses you may be battling may start to get better.
Take Andy Mackie, for example. At 59 years old, Andy Mackie had undergone nine heart surgeries and was taking 15 medications to try to keep him alive, but the medicines left him feeling horrible, so one day, he told his doctors he wanted to stop the drugs. They told him if he did, he’d die within a year, so Andy decided if he was dying, he wanted to do something he’d always wanted to do.
So he took the money he would’ve spent on his medications and used it to buy 300 harmonicas, and he gave them away to children, complete with harmonica lessons. The following month, he was still alive, so he bought another 300 harmonicas. Thirteen years and 20,000 harmonicas later, Andy Mackie finally passed away.
7. You may find that money flows in just as you’re ready to throw in the towel.
I’m not suggesting that you won’t wind up in debt or staring at an empty bank account when you used to have a full one or even bankrupt. But if you’re on the right path, you won’t wind up living under that freeway overpass near what used to be your house, and you may find that money appears almost magically once you’re really right in the dead center of your life’s purpose.
8. You may feel strangely peaceful, even when you have every reason to be anxious.
Everyone around you will likely think you’re crazy. A part of you will agree with them. But a wise inner knowing, that part of you I call your Inner Pilot Light, will be so comforted by the fact that you’re finally on the path to your purpose that you may feel unusually calm—until your rational mind kicks in.
Our souls long to express what we’re here on this earth to express, and when you finally fall into alignment with your calling, your soul does a little happy dance.  It may appear as if everything else in your life is falling apart, but you’ll have this sense of peace, a huge relief, that at least- finally—you know what you’re called to do.
9. The Universe will roll out the red carpet. 
When what you’re being called to do is what is needed for the highest good of all beings, the Universe will bend over backwards to hand you whatever you need on a silver platter. No request is too small. A copywriter may volunteer to help you just when you were thinking you needed to write a sales page. Someone will donate a printer when it’s time print a flyer. You’ll feel so supported, so lucky, that you’ll know you’re on track, even if you’re not quite clear what you’re on track to do.
10. Your people will find you.
Few can fulfill a calling alone. Most of us need a tribe to lift us up as we do brave, scary, world-changing things. But don’t worry. When you’re really on purpose, your people will find you, if only you’re courageous enough to be vulnerable about what you’re being called to do.
Do Any Of These Sound Familiar?
Have you found your calling? Or are you still looking for it? If you’ve found your calling, YEAH! The world needs you! Blessings to you on your hero’s journey.

Wisdom with Wes – Life is our Teacher – 12-4-14

Snapshot_20140731_2There are plenty of spiritual teachers we can turn to for advice, but at the end of the day, we’re our best teachers.

Or maybe I should say that life’s the best teacher. No matter what we learn from someone else, our experiences will always teach us more about ourselves and our spiritual evolution.

There are plenty of people we can follow nowadays for advice and guidance related to spirituality or general wellness, but their advice only goes so far if we aren’t willing to take a look around us and learn from what we see.

Every moment presents an opportunity to grow, and the more open we are, the more we’ll grow and the easier life will become.

We’ll eventually find that we don’t require a teacher or someone to look up to anymore, because life will keep us plenty busy. As long as we can learn to teach ourselves while letting life teach us some important lessons, we won’t require an external teacher to help us get where we want to go.

There’s nothing wrong with having a ‘guru’ to lok up to, but it becomes unnecessary when we realize that life is the guru. Life is our teacher, so let’s allow it to teach us and be thankful for the lessons we learn in every moment.

What will you learn from life today?

Stay aware!

Your Life Path Number – The Purpose Of Your Life – by RainbowStar – 2-12-14

 

Your Life Path represents your journey through life. The skills and characteristics that are represented by your Life Path can come naturally to you. Generally, you will feel drawn to, and enjoy, the activities that your Life Path describes. The Life Path number also describes the theme of the lessons that you learn through experience. The more you take on real and worthwhile challenges, the more experience you will gain about yourself and your abilities. For those that do take on challenges, the Life Path will become more important as it can highlight those pursuits that will be rewarding to you, and accomplishment brings joy, pride and experience.

When you are on your Life Path, you can draw others to you who wish to learn from you and utilize your strength, knowledge and courage. It is about being an active participant, instead of passively moving through life. When you engage yourself in your life, the world around you will become more alive. This is what the Life Path number is about. Find the pursuits that keep your inner flame burning and go after them. It is directly linked with your passion, vitality, and your connection with others. When you are on your Life Path, you are connected with yourself.

Your Life Purpose is best described in Numerology through the Life Path. The Life Path is about finding your place in the world. This number represents the native traits that you are born with. It also represents the trends and tendencies of your life and your work. The Life Path gives you the clue to your inner characteristics, vocational abilities, and possibilities. Keep in mind that the Life Path requires real, honest work on your part. It is not about putting your head in the sand, but rather living up to your potential.

Many people may find that they do not yet have a clear life purpose. Studying your Life Path can help you to focus, and listen to your inner dreams. You can calculate it by adding together the numbers in your birthday. The Life Path can help to pull together the different pieces of your life. Your purpose can slowly be revealed as you start to see the connections and patterns in your life.

Understanding your Life Path is a process of finding out who you are. It involves doing what you love, no matter the difficulties. It involves being who you are and not the person others have dictated. It’s your choice. You can bring your purpose into your present and your future.

Your Life Path number can help you to better focus and be aware of the aspects of your personality that have matured and those that can still mature and grow. You may look to your Life Path to help guide you in your questions around personal fulfillment and accomplishment.

 

How to Calculate Your Life Path Number

The Life Path number is calculated by adding together all the numbers found in your day, month and year of birth and then reducing those numbers to a single digit. If you end up with an 11, 22 or 33 do not reduce that number any further; these are master numbers and are not reduced in numerology.

For example 14 September 1952 would be  1+4+9+1+9+5+2=31 3+1 = 4  ==> The Life Path number for that date of birth would be 4.

 

LIFE PATH NUMBER INTERPRETATIONS   

 

Life Path 1 – The Extroverted Leader of People

The Life Path 1 suggests that you entered this plane with strong leadership skills that allow you to empower those you come in contact with. Your nature is charged with individualistic desires, a demand for independence, and the need for personal goal attainment. Many of our military generals, corporate leaders, and political leaders are men and women having the Life Path 1. When you manifest 1 energy in the positive, your mind is capable of significant creative inspiration and it possesses the enthusiasm and drive to bring large scale visions to reality. You are very good at getting the ball rolling as initiating new projects and visions is your forte. With this strength comes utter determination and the capability to lead large groups of people. As a natural leader you have an inclination for taking charge of any situation, sometimes causing resentment from others.

Highly original, you are very efficient in coming up with new visions or goals. In any work that you choose, your independent attitude and extroverted personality is attractive to your peers. You have very strong personal needs and desires, and you feel it is always necessary to follow your own convictions. You tire of routine and highly detailed tasks rather quickly.

You are ambitious and assertive in promoting yourself due to extroverted qualities. Although you may hide the fact in social situations, you have a tendency to influence others to follow your lead. That said, for the most part, you are considered very good company, friendly, good-natured, and wonderful with words. People are attracted to 1 energy and are drawn to your ideas which is a good thing since 1′s are very sensitive to disapproval and don’t handle it very well.

*If you have a life path of “10″ please be aware that the “0″ following the 1 accentuates the 1 influence. 10′s and 11′s will be similar in their life path, however, slightly different in the lessons they must confront and overcome to maximize their 1 path.

 

The Dark Side of 1 Energy

The negative aspects of your number encourage the tendency to become dictatorial and tactless. Diplomacy is always the best tactic with which to get your way. Being dictatorial will negate your chances of success. Hypersensitivity is another negative aspect that must be controlled. It’s difficult for you to accept criticism, yet you can be rather critical of others. Allow your better instincts to prevail, and you should be able to subdue these negative qualities. Selfishness, depression, and vanity are other traits that can mitigate your success. Your path will be one of great power and success if you accept the role of leader and play it with all good faith, understanding, and generosity.

There are several ways that the negative side of the 1 can show up. The 1 always has the potential for greatness as a leader, but they may fail as a follower. Unfortunately, sometimes you have to follow for a while before you’re allowed to lead and this can be a difficult time. When the 1 Life Path person is not fully developed and expressing the negative side of this number, the demeanor may appear dependent rather than independent, particularly in the early years. If you’re expressing this negative trait of the number 1, you’re likely to be very dissatisfied with your circumstances, and long for self-sufficiency. This might be defined as the weak or dependent side of the negative 1 Life Path. On the strong side of this negative curve, the 1 energy can become too self-serving, selfish, and egotistical. Avoid being too bossy and demanding.

Life Path 2 – The Compassionate Team Player

As the perfect companion, you’re the ideal mate, spouse, partner, friend, or employee. For this reason it’s best to follow the well-trodden path and leave the trailblazing to others. You can profit by their mistakes and wisely make the necessary corrections as you go along.

Disharmony and unpleasant situations disturb you greatly, therefore you go out of your way to keep peace and to calm troubled waters. Your concern and consideration for others bring you a host of friends who you appreciate and treasure. Two outstanding traits that count heavily toward the attainment of anything you desire are your diplomacy and tact. You do things so gracefully that there’s never much of a problem in getting your own way.

The keynote of your success is cooperation—therefore, you’re most successful when completing the plans or executing the directives of others who are less capable of handling the organization and detail. It’s best not to attempt to originate ideas or businesses on your own.

Always agreeable, charming, and friendly, you impress people immediately. You draw out the silent and give solace to the troubled. As a result, you go through life with great grace. Calm and intelligent, you master any group or environment without friction. You need never lack for the finer things in life, even though you’re not aggressive.

Your great power of concentration and cooperation draw to you without much effort the rewards that others have to search for. This rhythm is vital to your contentment.

You have an unusual spirit of independence that makes you the perfect companion, yet completely self-sufficient if you need to be. You can easily and most satisfactorily take over the business responsibilities when left in charge, or those of the household when your partner is elsewhere. You prefer to act in concert with a partner, employer, or companion, where your duty is to carry out their directives. However, this same sense of cooperation and understanding also makes you quite efficient in whatever you undertake in a managerial capacity. Yet, in most cases your successes lie in assisting rather than in directing. Should an idea in its raw state be presented to you, you’ll bring it to life and make it workable. This is a good quality to have since much of your life will be spent in the employ of others.

It’s in your nature to readily forgive and understand, which again, makes you the perfect companion. Should there be trouble within your marriage or partnership, chances are you’ll be the one to make sacrifices or compromises in order to overcome it. The great powers you have been endowed with allow you to forgive any transgression on the part of your mate or partner, but you must take care to avoid being so forgiving that transgressions become a habit on their part.

The Life Path 2 suggests that you entered this plane with a spiritual quality in your makeup allowing you to be one of the peacemakers in society. Your strengths come from an ability to listen and absorb. You’re a fixer, a mediator, and a very diplomatic type of person using persuasive skills rather than forcefulness to make your way in the world. When you embrace and exhibit the strength of your spiritual side, you’re intuitive, avant-garde, idealistic, and visionary. These extremes make you interesting with much to offer society. You have the potential to be a deep-thinker, and no doubt interested in understanding many of life’s mysteries and more intriguing facets.

If you’re living with the positive attributes of the number 2 Life Path, you’re apt to have the most delicate ability to be balanced and fair. You clearly see the full spectrum of viewpoints in any argument or situation. Because of this, people seek you out to be a mediator. In this role you’re able to settle disputes with the most unbiased flair. There’s sincere concern for others; you think the best of people, and want the best for them. You’re honest and open in thought, word, and deed. You excel in any form of group activity where your expertise in handling and blending people can be used effectively. Manners and tact mark your way with others, and you’re not one to dominate a group or situation. You’re the master of compromise and of maintaining harmony in your environment. As the ultimate team member, you never demand praise or recognition.

In many ways, you’re a creature of habit and routine—you like your path and pattern well worn and familiar. Your ability to analyze and render accurate judgments is a wonderful natural trait you bring to the business world. You strive for complete accuracy and even perfection in your work. Perhaps you’re not a leader, but you’re a visionary and a very talented idea person.

 

The Dark Side of 2 Energy
Negatively, in your effort to please you can too easily be influenced against your better judgment. You can also be moody and undecided, not to mention oversensitive. There are times when your uncertainty allows others to get the best of you, and this can make you resentful.

On the negative side, nervous energy is a trait often observed in the Life Path 2. Because of this, you may be seen as an extremist who’s sometimes the zealot in expressing likes and dislikes. Nervous tension can bring the normally easygoing 2 into a state of emotional outrage, which to those around you, may seem well out of character. Indeed, the 2 can sometimes become oversensitive. In some instances, the strength of the 2 can also become its weakness. At times you may find it hard to decide what to do. Twos often struggle against indecisiveness. Making decisions and getting your rear in gear—so to speak—may be a challenge. There’s a tendency for the many 2s to harbor feelings of uneasiness, and dissatisfaction with accomplishments and personal progress in life. The biggest obstacle and difficulty you may face is that of passivity and a state of apathy and lethargy. The negative 2 flirts with pessimism. When this sets in to any degree, you accomplish very little. If you’re living on the negative side of the 2, you may lack common sense, and you’re quite often unable to distinguish between fantasy and reality.

Even the more positive individuals with the 2 Life Path prefer a more amiable and less competitive environment, often shunning the business world. You can best serve society in endeavors utilizing your skills of counseling and guidance. Much of your idealism is people-oriented and quite humanitarian in nature. You expect a great deal of yourself.

Life Path 3 – The Creative

Self-expression is your keynote. The sparkle and effervescence you generate wherever you go bolsters the morale of anyone feeling a bit low. This, plus the fact that you’re very sociable and entertaining to be around, helps you to win friends quite easily. With the exception of the rare individual who doesn’t understand you, or perhaps feels envy, most people enjoy your company and treasure your friendship. You do realize that life isn’t all fun and games; and though you enjoy them as much as anyone, you see things clearly and don’t waste time or energy on the unreal or ridiculous.

Intelligence and a very keen mind are your two great assets—use them well. You quickly and easily learn anything that catches you fancy; but once the knowledge is stored, you go on to other things, rather than delve into it deeply. This versatility is the foundation of the many talents you possess, which make it problematic at times to decide just what it is you wish to express.  Enthusiasm reigns for a time, and you manage to transmit this excitement to others. Then suddenly your interest changes and you quickly go on to something else.

You’re used to, and enjoy, getting things your own way and doing exactly as you please. “What will be, will be” is your motto, and you don’t worry too much about tomorrow. This is fine as long as you don’t become so unconcerned that you neglect the things you should.

With your quick wit, the words you choose at times makes you seem a bit too critical of other people and their opinions. Take care, for you could unintentionally hurt those you love. Wit is an asset when used strictly in a humorous sense, and you’ve been endowed with a finely honed sense of humor that keeps you and yours cheerful.

Words—and your clever way of using them–stand you in good stead in any field where verbal communication is necessary. You’ll succeed in any of these areas without much effort on your part. Language and its use are like food for your soul. You thrive on intellectual pursuits and like to pass on what you’ve learned to others who are less knowledgeable. Music, dance, and the arts are very important to you.

Your greatest happiness is in loving and being loved. It’s an absolute necessity for you to be emotionally involved. Because of this great need for love, you’re apt to be a very good mate, always adoring, always ready to forgive, as long as your partner shows you the affection you crave. You mustn’t let this love become too overpowering or try to dominate the relationship because it could lead to the loss of all that you seek. Intimacy is extremely important to you and some of your relationships will be based on that alone.

Use your talents to bring joy wherever you go and in every relationship. Continually cultivate new associations and be cheerful, for this is your blueprint.

The Life Path 3 indicates that you entered this plane with a strong sense of creativity and wonderful communication skills. Achievement for you most likely comes through engaging your ingenious expression. A truly gifted 3 possesses the most exceptional innovative skills, normally in the verbal realm, writing, speaking, acting, or similar endeavors. Here we’re apt to find the entertainers of the world, bright, effervescent, sparkling people with optimistic attitudes. The bright side of this path stresses harmony, beauty, and pleasures; of sharing your inventive talents with the world. Capturing your capability in creative self-expression is the highest level of attainment for this life path.

Life Path 3’s generally live to the fullest, often without much worry about tomorrow. This can result in poor money management; you’re simply not concerned. You spend it when you have it, and sometimes even when you don’t.

The 3 loves connecting with people. The characteristics of the 3 are warmth and friendliness, a good conversationalist, social and open. A good talker both from the standpoint of being a delight to listen to, but even more importantly, one who has the ability to listen to others. Accordingly, the life path 3 produces people who are a welcome addition to any social situation and know how to make others feel at home. Your approach to life tends to be exceedingly positive. Your disposition is almost always sunny and openhearted. A happy and often inspired person, you’re constantly seeking and needing stimulation of similar people.

There is a remote side to your 3 Life Path, as well. This comes as a surprise to the native and to those who think they’re well acquainted. The 3 is actually a very sensitive soul. When hurt, you can easily retreat into a shell of morose silence for extended periods. Nonetheless, the 3 eventually copes with all of the many setbacks that occur in life and bounces back for more. It’s usually easy for you to deal with problems because you freely admit their existence without letting them get you down for too long. Because of your own sensitivity to hurt, you have a caring disposition and are usually conscious of other people’s feelings and emotions.

In romance, the 3 is an ardent and loyal lover. Relationships that don’t go well can leave scars that linger. Emotional experiences of all types tend to deeply touch the 3 with the associated drama taking some time to play out. Regrettably, the giving disposition of the 3 often attracts demanding partners. As with most of life’s issues for the 3 Life Path, balance in relationships can be elusive.

Your big test with a 3 Life Path is controlling your highs and lows. You won’t thrive in a routine environment or when you’re placed under dominating management. Slow thinking and overly contemplative people tend to frustrate you. You don’t function well with this type, whether you’re working for them or with them. Your exuberant nature will take you far, especially when you’re able to focus your energies and talents.

 

The Dark Side of 3 Energy
On the negative side, don’t allow intimate desires to negate your common sense or cause you to be promiscuous. Vanity and a tendency toward wasting yourself and your talents are also a danger, as is a lackadaisical “who cares” attitude.

For the few living on the negative side of this Life Path, a 3 may be so delighted with the joy of living they become frivolous and superficial. You may scatter your abilities and express little sense of purpose. The 3 can be an enigma, for no apparent reason you may become moody and tend to retreat. Escapist tendencies are not uncommon with the 3 life path, and you find it very hard to settle into one place or one position. Guard against being critical of others, impatient, intolerant, or overly optimistic.

Life Path 4 – The Universal Soldier & Master Builder

You won’t reach for the fleeting things of life. Rather, you’ll settle only for those that’ll reward you with lasting benefits. You have a great head for details and can make even the most boring, mundane jobs pay off with a measure of success. You can keep your head when everyone around you loses theirs. Take this for what it’s worth and channel it properly; persevere when others have tired or lost interest and you’ll receive your just rewards.

You must learn to evaluate every idea or product you’re involved with and not get carried away with the “blue sky” aspects of them. Think clearly and stand firm where your logic dictates.  Never a wanderer, you prefer to live and work in one place after you’ve adjusted to it. You work best when you have a sense of permanence to hang onto.

A 4 Life Path is one of justice, equality, and practicality. You’ll spend your lifetime working toward your goal. Even when you attain what you think you want, you’ll go on and lay foundations for other acquisitions. Always working, always building, so goes a 4, but with a great capacity for patience, you’re well prepared for it.

Method, logic, and loyalty are your tools. This combination brings you what you desire. Details, duty, and conservation may restrict you in a sense—except when applied in the most practical way. At times, you find yourself so bogged down with details that you may lose sight of the overall picture.  In that case, it’s wise to allow yourself to flow with the tide and accept the thoughts and opinions of more experienced people. This applies to all arenas—from raising a family, to managing a business, and everything in-between. Insisting that your ideas are the most practical can hinder your progress, so learn to listen and weigh everything before you tell yourself and others that your way is the only way.

Always ready to take on anything, you never shirk your duties. When dependability is required, you’re the ideal candidate. As a mate, this bodes well for your partnership and is a great model for any children you may raise.

You can take any idea, concept, or design and bring it to life. Express yourself whenever the opportunity presents itself, both in business and at home. If you’re a homemaker, you can adapt the design of any decorator or artist and bring beauty and easy living into your home.

The Life Path 4 suggests that you entered this plane with a natural genius for planning, fixing, building, and somehow, with practical application and cerebral excellence, making things work. You’re one of the most trustworthy, practical, and down-to-earth of individuals—the cornerstone members of society. Indeed, as a Life Path 4, you are a builder of society. The cream of the crop in this Life Path can be a master builder in society. If you’re among these highly talented people, you have an idealistic nature which is grounded in practical terms, allowing you to conceive grandiose, far-reaching schemes and carry them through to the end. If you desire and are willing to work for it, you can achieve enormous success, prestige, and fame. Obviously, everyone with a 4 Life Path doesn’t become famous.

People with this Life Path have the ability to take orders and to carry them out with dedication and perseverance, and many 4s live and work happily in this context. But so often, the 4 Life Path is the entrepreneur and manager in the community. In either role, you always demand as much from yourself as you do from others, and sometimes a lot more.

You have the kind of willpower that’s often mistaken for stubbornness. You don’t think of yourself as dogged, but your honest beliefs and that ever-direct speech makes you come across as completely unremitting. Once you’ve made a decision, you follow it through to the conclusion—right, wrong, or indifferent. You’re set in your ways and determined to handle things the way you feel they should be handled. Your tenacity of purpose and ability to get the job done, borders on obsession. You’re a wonderful manager with a great sense of how to get the job done.

Because of your ability to view things in a common-sense and practical way, you’re an excellent organizer and planner. This stems from a strong desire to be a perfectionist in your labor. Planning is necessary to avoid errors. It’s very likely that a 4 Life Path person invented the to-do list, because it’s the rare Life Path 4 who doesn’t have one by his/her side at all times. You program your life in an orderly fashion that allows you to catalog and manage the flow of ideas and activities that fill your day. You function best when under the gun and facing a tough set of problems.

Loyal and devoted, you make the best of your partnerships, and you’re always a good provider. Friends may be few in number, but you’re very close to the ones you have. And once friendships are made, they often last a lifetime.

The number 4 is solidly associated with the element of earth from which it gains its strength and utter sense of reality. You’re one of the most dependable people you know. If patience and determination can ever win, you’re sure to achieve great success in life. Often, you’re called on to take care of others—to finish what they’ve started. It may not seem fair and probably isn’t, but it may be the key to your accomplishment and reputation.

 

The Dark Side of 4 Energy
Stubbornness, narrow-mindedness, jealousy, envy, and stinginess can be the shadow side of your character.

The negative side of the 4 can prove dogmatic to an excess, narrow-minded, and repressive. Skin-deep people turn you off, and you lack the tact to keep your feelings from showing to those in your sphere of influence. Additionally, the negative 4 has a tendency to get so caught up in the daily routine of affairs that they can miss the big picture and subsequently forfeit major opportunities that come along.

Life Path 5 – The Freedom Seeker & Master of Experience

Freedom is your proudest possession and you’ll allow no one to interfere with it. This sense of freedom manifests itself in constant pursuit of adventure. Your natural wit, enthusiasm, and boundless energy make this possible.

You’re not always consistent in your temperament—experiencing great highs and lows—you’re sometimes docile and sometimes in a black temper. However, this variance of mood always implies a chameleon-like intellect that can match the mood of the times, advancing or remaining static as the situation demands.

You thoroughly enjoy everything that goes on in this great universe called life. Your interest, combined with your wit and sense of humor, makes you the center of attraction of any group. Words are gems you enjoy giving to those around you. Language is your currency—the means by which you express all you’ve learned and experienced. Though usually humorous, you’re by no means merely a clown. You take pleasure in serious subjects and express yourself well, but take care to show your mastery of language only in areas where your knowledge is complete. You can easily misinform people because your way of expressing yourself can hold them captive, and they often believe anything you have to say.

Making excellent use of all the senses, you’re sensual in thought and action. This results in a magnetic quality that draws people to you. Should you venture into subjects you know little about, you may find yourself in an extremely embarrassing position. Once made to look foolish, you’ll be hard-pressed to vindicate yourself and you’ll not command the attention you’re used to and fond of.

Sarcasm and humor—though assets—can also be weapons when used against someone unable to compete; someone without your command of rhetoric. Take care to control your thoughts; channel them carefully into positive areas to further yourself and your career.  You have a tendency toward involving yourself in too many areas at one time, especially when your vivid imagination takes over. When you consolidate your thoughts and efforts, you reap the most benefits.

Be prepared for quick and frequent changes—moves and travel. Accept these changes with a spirit of adventure and keep moving. Yours isn’t a life of steadiness in any case, so leave each place or relationship with no regrets. Seek all of the new experiences you can find and store the knowledge gained for future use. Learn languages and use them wherever you can. The ingenuity and adaptability you’ve been endowed with allows you to wring more pleasure out of every situation—giving you double the rewards.

The Life Path 5 suggests that you entered this plane with a highly progressive mindset, with the attitude and skills to make the world a better place. The key word for your Life Path is freedom. In the pursuit of freedom, you’re naturally versatile, adventurous, and advanced in your thinking. You’re one of those people strives to find answers to the many questions that life poses. The bywords for the positive Life Path 5 are constant change and improvement. You want to be totally unrestrained, as this is the number most frequently associated with the productive use of freedom.

You may be one of the most compassionate of people as the 5 is surely the most freedom-loving and compassionate Life Path. Your love of freedom extends to humanity at large, and concern for your fellow man, his freedom and his welfare, may be foremost in your mind. As the ultimate progressive thinker type, your potential in government, law, the military, and other positions of authority is unlimited.

You’re an excellent communicator and you know how to motivate people. This may be your strongest and most valuable trait. Because of this skill, and your amazing wit, you’re a truly natural born salesperson. The ability to sell and motivate extends to any sort of physical product, all the way through to whatever ideas or concepts you embrace.

You loath boring work, and chafe at mundane tasks. It’s important for you to find a job that provides thought-provoking responsibilities. You do best dealing with people, but the important thing is that you have the flexibility to express yourself at all times. You have an innate ability to think through complex matters and analyze them quickly, and then be off-and-running onto a new challenge. Generally speaking, the number 5 personality is rather happy-go-lucky—living for today—and not over-worried about tomorrow.

A love of adventure dominates your life. This may take the form of mental or physical manifestation, but in either case, you thrill to the chance for exploration and blazing new trails. As a Life Path 5, you belong to a group considered the most worldly and traveled. Clearly you’re not one to pass up a good adventure. You have a healthy dose of the risk-taker in your makeup; the conservative approach stands in second place.

In romance, you hate to be tied down and restricted. This doesn’t at all mean that you’re unfaithful or promiscuous. It means that a good partner for you needs to understand your nature. A relationship based on jealousy and having tight reigns isn’t going to work for you—at all. A partner who understands your need to be free and trusted will find you trustworthy, even if you aren’t constantly available and totally dutiful. It’s important for you to mix with like-minded people, and to spend less time with those who are constraining and demanding.

 

The Dark Side of 5 Energy
Your shadow side encourages fickleness, jealousy, depression, and a vicious temper. You also make impulsive decisions that can be harmful. You tend more toward doing exactly what you want, rather than what’s good for you. Your constant need for change in relationships, jobs, homes, and other areas often leaves you out on a limb, and you find yourself having to start all over again.

People with a 5 Life Path generally become writers, actors, linguists, or “front” people involved in advertising, public relations—anything that deals with words or discussions. Knowing this helps you to save every tidbit of knowledge you glean from life and use it in one way or another in the above professions.

If you’re living on the negative side of the Life Path 5, you’re apt to be multi-talented, but suffer from a lack of direction that results in confusion surrounding your ambition. Restless, discontent, and impulsive, you may bounce from one job to the next without accomplishing much. A negative Life Path 5 can become irresponsible in tasks and decisions concerning home and business. The total pursuit of sensation and adventure can result in a Life Pat 5 that self-indulgent and totally unaware of the feelings of those around them.

Life Path 6 – The Insightful Mentor & Leader of Ideas

The wisdom with which you mediate can also be used to great advantage within groups or organizations, as well as in family life. You can safely be classified a do-gooder in the nicest sense of the word and to everyone’s advantage.

Love is the reigning factor in your life, and your destiny dictates that you teach the meaning of love to all humanity through your strong sense of justice. In your personal relationships you give strength, comfort, and lasting love or friendship, and you’re always there when needed and wanted. You enjoy beauty, peace, and harmony in your surroundings, especially in your home. Your home and family are your immediate concern and, once you’ve established your brand of happiness there, you extend it elsewhere.

Unselfishness is one of your main characteristics. It allows you to teach both old and young everything you’ve learned, with the hope that it’ll provide value—shedding light on their path in life. Always sympathetic and understanding, you find it easy to counsel the troubled without ever being critical.

A great connoisseur of the finer things in life, you express your appreciation of the arts by being creative in these fields. You home is generally a showplace of your interests, yet it expresses the warmth of your personality and charm.

Many unwelcome responsibilities fall to you, and though not easy to cope with, you face up to them and fulfill them to the best of your ability, adding to your overall understanding of life and true happiness. You’re cognizant of the additional strength you acquire with each adversity that you conquer. Eventually these adversities become like water rolling off a duck’s back and never try you beyond your endurance. You’re a great humanitarian and show it every chance you get.

The Life Path 6 suggests that you entered this plane with tools to become the ultimate nurturer, and a beacon for truth, justice, righteousness, and domesticity. Your paternal, or maternal, as the case may be, instincts with a 6 Life Path exceed all others by a considerable margin. Whether in the home or in the work place, you’re the predominant caretaker and family head. While the 6 may assume significant responsibilities in the community, their life revolves around the immediate home and family, for this is the most domestic of numbers. Conservative principles and convictions are deeply ingrained and define your character.

You’re idealistic and must feel useful to be happy. Your main contributions are advice, service, and your ever present support. You’re a humanitarian of the first order. It’s your role to serve others, and you start in the home environment. You’re realistic about life, and you feel that the most important things are home, family, and friends.

This is the Life Path related to leadership by example and assumption of responsibility. Hence, you find it your obligation to pick up the burden and always be ready to help. If you’re like the majority with Life Path 6, you’re one who willingly carries far more than your fair share of any load, and you’re always there when needed. In doing so, you take ownership and often become an authority over the situation.

In romance, the 6 is loyal and devoted. A caretaker type, you’re apt to attract partners who you can care for and protect. The key ingredient that must prevail in your relationships is harmony. You don’t function well in stressful relationships. When this happens, there’s a tendency for you to become dominate and control.

It’s likely you feel compelled to function with strength and compassion. You’re a sympathetic and kind person, generous with personal and material resources. Wisdom, balance, and understanding are the cornerstones of your life—they define your overall approach to life in general. Your extraordinary wisdom and the ability to understand other people’s problems starts at an early age. This allows you to easily span the generation gap and assume an important role in life early on.

 

The Dark Side of 6 Energy
Your few negatives are extravagance, over-protectiveness, and being a bit of a worrywart. You may also meddle in affairs that don’t concern you in an effort to help others understand what you think is wrong, though they haven’t asked for your advice. Additionally, you may not allow other people their own frailties if they’re inconsistent with yours.

The additional pitfalls to your particular Life Path are a tendency to become overwhelmed by responsibilities and a slave to others; especially members of you own family or close friends. It’s easy for you to fall into a pattern of being too critical of others and yourself. The misuse of this Life Path produces tendencies for you to engage in exaggeration, over-expansiveness, and self-righteousness. Modesty and humility may not flow easily.

The natural burdens of this number are heavy, and on rare occasions, responsibility is abdicated by people with this Life Path 6. This rejection of responsibility makes you feel guilty and uneasy, and it can have damaging effects on your relationships with others.

Life Path 7 – The Truth Seeker & Connector Of The Unseen

The nature of a Life Path 7 person is intellectual and introspective. You delve into everything in an effort to find out what makes it tick. You rarely accept things at face value. Rather, you must see for yourself that your own opinions are sound. When the germ of an idea is absorbed into your subconscious, you meditate and turn it over in your mind until you fully understand every aspect. Only then do you act on it or discard it. This process leads you to the discovery of great philosophical truths, which you use, in turn, to your advancement as well as in the consolation and healing of the troubled. You’re psychic—you possess a certain knowing—and often experience déjà vu, a sense of having lived a certain experience before.

Yours is the role of philosopher, teacher, and healer, but it’s not easy for you to teach until you loosen up a bit. Your reserved nature gives people the impression that you’re unapproachable. Only those who understand your quiet, contemplative moods can get through to you. These are the fortunate ones because you have so much to give.

Your interests are mainly cultural and philosophical—you pursue the intellectual. The finer things in life are as necessary to you as the air you breathe. All things beautiful capture your keen interest: a well done painting, a beautiful sculpture, or a good book. You’re the rare individual who enjoys every stroke of the brush in a painting, not just the overall effect. Because of this trait, you’re a connoisseur of the finest ilk. Life Path 7’s make excellent parents because they teach their children to appreciate all of the beauty that life has to offer, both in an intellectual and a physical sense.

Your reserved manner wraps you in a mantle of dignity. Respect from one and all is your heritage, and you accept it with grace. Because you have to face a wide brushstroke of obstacles, life is often disappointing to you, but you see disappointments as opportunities to delve into the hidden truths of life and use this knowledge to better yourself and your life. This spiritual and practical knowledge you glean is your vehicle to happiness.

Never hurry—take the time for rest and meditation. There’s no need to be concerned by economics, for you generally have what you need. The fate of the mystic, as for a 7, is to study, question, apply, and teach the secrets of the soul. As such, Providence always take care of your material needs. This is a rare gift and should be used well.

The Life Path 7 suggests that you entered this plane with a gift for investigation, analysis, and keen observation. You’re a thinker of the first order. You evaluate situations quickly and with amazing accuracy. As a result, you’re thorough and complete in your work—the perfectionist who expects everyone else to meet a high standard of performance, too.

A Life Path 7 person is a peaceful and affectionate soul. But you guard your connection to people carefully. It’s easy for you to detect deception and recognize insincere people. When you do, you give them a wide berth. You aren’t one to have a large circle of friends, but once you accept someone as a friend, it’s for life. Most 7’s are charming and refined individuals with great poise and a quick wit.

Nonetheless, there’s a certain reclusiveness about you. While others enjoy being around you, you don’t necessarily enjoy being around them. Your reserve is often mistaken for aloofness, but there’s no rush. It takes time for you to warm up to new friends. Clubs and organizations hold little interest for you—you’re not a joiner.

You enjoy your own company—you actually thrive on being alone, away from the hustle and bustle life. You need a good deal of quiet time to be with your own inner thoughts and dreams. You dislike crowds, noise, distractions, and confusion.

As mentioned before, the keynote of 7′s strength is reflected in their depth of thought. 7’s garner knowledge from practically every source they find. Intellectual, scientific, and studious, you don’t accept a premise until you have dissected the subject and arrived at your own independent conclusion.

7 is considered a spiritual number and it often denotes a spiritual wisdom that becomes apparent at a fairly early age. A built-in inner guidance system provides you with a strong sense of intuition—almost a law unto yourself. Whatever spiritual position you take, traditional ornot, you cling to it with fervor. Once you’ve decided on an issue, you’re tenacious. It’s almost impossible to get you to revisit the question. Adaptability is not your style, and change for you is a rarity.

Rather than accepting advice, you rely on your own experiences and your intuition. Your hunches usually prove to be accurate, and knowing this, you confidently follow the directions they guide.

 

The Dark Side of 7 Energy
Your shadow side has you leaning toward moodiness, standoffishness, and secretiveness—none of which furthers your image. As a result, many people find you cold and unemotional, making it difficult to enter relationships. Worst case scenario, you may also be devious and calculating.

In the most negative use of the 7 energies, you can be pessimistic, lackadaisical, quarrelsome, and secretive. A Life Path 7 individual who’s not living life fully and gaining through experiences, is a hard person to live with because of their lack of consideration for others. Operating on the negative side of the 7 can produce a selfish and spoiled individual and living with one can be a challenge. This may be why some 7s prefer living alone.

Fortunately, the negative 7 is not the typical 7, at least not without some mitigating positive traits. This number is one that seems to have some major shifts from highs to lows. Stability in feelings may be elusive for you.

Life Path 8 – The Wealth Accumulator & Leader of Business

You’ve the capacity for management in all areas of life, especially in business and financial matters—should you so desire.

Fame, power, and fortune are the three corners of your crown—should you so desire.

A great connoisseur of the finer things in life, you especially appreciate the arts—visual, performing, language, and culinary. Your home is generally a showplace of your interests, yet it expresses the warmth of your personality and charm.

You understand the material world and intuitively know what makes virtually any enterprise work. Your talent lies with the greater vision, its purpose, and long-range goals. You possess the ability to inspire people to join you in your quest—should you so desire.

Business, finance, real estate, law, science (particularly history, archeology, and physics), publishing, and the management of large institutions are among the vocational fields that suit you best. You’re naturally attracted to positions of influence and leadership—politics, social work, and teaching are among the many other areas where your abilities can shine—should you so desire.

As a leader and a teacher—a person who influences—those in your sphere of influence need your continual guidance, inspiration, and encouragement. You must prod them into action and direct them along the lines of your vision.

With such ability, you’d do well to align yourself with large groups or organizations; the larger the group, the larger your rewards, whether financial or spiritual. A great sense of what is inordinately right helps you to direct your efforts. Your interest in philanthropic organizations can be extremely useful to them because you have the ability to draw to them what many others can’t—accomplishing so much more.

You’re very perceptive and understand human nature. As such, you have profound sympathy for people less fortunate than you. Courage is one of your greatest assets and you display it often in fighting for equal rights for all mankind. The underdog is your pet project. Your lifetime is spent in lending a hand to anyone who needs it, and that which is given is always returned many-fold.

Material things will be yours without much effort—should you so desire—but your happiness will also be spiritual in the knowledge that you’ve accomplished something unique by sheer dint of your ability.

The Life Path 8 suggests that you entered this plane armed to lead, direct, organize, and govern. You’re endowed with tremendous potential for conceiving far-reaching schemes and ideas, and also possess the tenacity and independence to follow them through to completion. In short, you were born to be an executive.

You know how to manage yourself and your environment. Your ability to judge the character and potential of the people around you is an asset. Your inspirational quality goes a long way toward engaging them in your endeavors—a special trait not to be overlooked.

The Life Path 8 produces many powerful, confident, and materially successful people. A large part of their success comes from how hard they work. Take care, this Life Path is the most prone to producing workaholics. You may be very much in love, but watch that you’re not too busy and preoccupied to show it. You must make time for love and nurture it.

The Dark Side of 8 Energy
The negative 8 can be dictatorial and often suppresses the enthusiasm and efforts of fellow member of the environment. The strength of their own personality can exclude close feelings for other people with whom they come in contact.

Material gains and rewards often become issues of utmost importance, even to the neglect of family, home, and peace of mind. Dedication to success can become an obsession.

Emotional feelings are often suppressed by the negative 8, resulting in isolation and loneliness. All Life Path 8 people must avoid discounting the opinions of others.

Life Path 9 – The Humanitarian Leader

A 9 Life Path is the sum total of all the other numbers. Therefore, it carries all of the same attributes and negatives attendant to each, making your energy highly charged in every way.

You’re a utopian. You spend your life trying to realize some aspect of your utopian dream—sacrificing money, time, and energy for a better world. It’s in giving that you find much satisfaction. You’ve a broad outlook on life. You tend to see the big picture, rather than the minute details. The person with a 9 Life Path is rarely prejudiced or accepts social biases of people. Instead, they evaluate people on the basis of what they can do for—contribute to—the larger cause.

You have a healthy imagination and are extremely creative, especially at harmoniously arranging the beauty already potential in the environment. These abilities can lead you into fields such as interior decorating, landscape art, and photography. But because of your strong social consciousness, you can be an effective politician, lawyer, judge, minister, teacher, healer, or environmentalist. Vocations that require self-sacrifice and have a clear positive social impact are common among 9s.

You’re often disappointed by the realities of life, the shortcomings of others, or of yourself. You don’t want to accept the imperfections of the world, a feeling that drives you constantly to try to improve upon it. Rather than being satisfied with your efforts, and those of others, you relentlessly push on, striving for even greater accomplishments.

A key to your personality is the necessity of sacrifice. One of your lessons is learning to let go of material possessions and relationships; learning that holding on too tightly to anything causes pain. The most successful and satisfying road for a Life Path 9 is giving, sharing, and sacrificing for a larger goal without expecting anything in return.

Doing for others is one of your finest characteristics, and you derive extreme pleasure from knowing that you were able to help in some way. If you’re a 9 with financial means, you’d do well to tie your personal fortunes to an endeavor that makes the world a better place for others. Very often, this turns into a highly successful and lucrative enterprise. Your life rests on the axiom that the more one gives, the larger the reward.

The Life Path 9 suggests that you entered this plane with an abundance of dramatic feelings coupled with a strong sense of compassion and generosity. The key to the nature of a Life Path number 9 is found in their humanitarian attitude. The 9, being the highest of the single digit numbers, holds an elevated position in terms of responsibilities to mankind.

Material gain is not overly important, although some Life Path 9 people are materially rewarded in significant ways. In this, however, the 9 Life Path is not apt to get rich since they’re very generous—many times to a fault—and usually have an easy come, easy go attitude about money.

The 9 Life Path indicates you have a commanding presence. You’ve the ability to make friends easily, as people are attracted to your magnetic, open personality. You meet people easily and are quickly befriended because of your openness and amiable demeanor. Your genial ways often put you in the lead in whatever you pursue.

Your quite inquisitive and your extreme sensitivity makes you understand and respond easily to people, atmosphere, attitudes, music, sounds, color, and personalities. This makes you very perceptive and accentuates your interest in the meaning behind everything you come across. All things mystic appeal to you and you feel the need to delve deeper—to see for yourself just what they may hold for you.

You tend to be quite sensitive because you experience through the lens of feeling. The number 9’s deep understanding of life is sometimes manifested in the artistic and literary fields. If drama and acting isn’t your forte, it will surely be an area of great interest and potential. Likewise, you may be able to express your deep emotional feelings through painting, writing, music, or other art forms.

The purpose of life for those with a 9 life path is often of a philosophical nature. Judges, spiritual leaders, healers, and educators frequently have much 9 energy. The number is less inclined to the competitive business environment and may even find this a struggle.

 

The Dark Side of 9 Energy
Because of the demanding nature of the truly positive 9, many tend to fail in this category. It’s not uncommon for persons with the 9 life path to fight the realities and challenges of purpose imposed here because selflessness isn’t an easy trait.

You may have difficulty believing that giving and a lack of ambition for personal gain can be satisfying. It must be realized and accepted that little long-term satisfaction and happiness is to be gained by rejecting the natural humanitarian inclinations of this path.

You’re romantic, but your love is more impersonal because you tend to be focused on your dreams. When you’re not in harmony with your true nature, you can fall to moodiness, or become aloof, and withdrawn. You can become timid, uncertain, and ungrateful, putting the blame for your troubles on others or the world.

Your concern for and interest in others tends to unnerve you at times, causing you to either rise to the heights of ecstasy or sink into the depths of depression.

LIFE PATH MASTER NUMBERS

Master numbers are the double-digits, such as 11, 22, up to 99. 

 

We Gain Mastery through Challenges and Obstacles

Master numbers tend to signify many challenges in the lifetime to help the soul gain mastery.  The focus of this mastery is found by looking at the specific area indicated both by the two double numbers (e.g., 5 5) and the total of the two numbers: 5 + 5 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1 (base number) 

Master numbers are often (erroneously) considered to be “higher” numbers, given only to special souls who are ready to use their spiritual qualities.  In fact, however, numbers do not ascend in spiritual value as they become larger.  A 9 is not more gifted than a 2.  Each number has it’s own quality and place in the universal archetypes of human consciousness. A Master number 33 (6 base number) is not more spiritual, than, for example, 22 (4 base number). In fact, 33 is not more spiritual than 6.

The Master quality appears in the person who has an awakened awareness, and a comprehensive view or ability to access the potential of the base number.Those who seek to recognize and realize their life purpose, and who strive to see the higher purpose behind events are examples of heightened awareness.

 

Master Numbers Expect More of Themselves 

In my experience talking with people with Master numbers, especially the 22 and 33, it seems like they encounter more than their share of physical and emotional challenges, setbacks, or limitations.

It’s not unusual to have at least one Master number in a name or birthdate.  Having two or more Master numbers may subject the person to more extremes in emotions and actions.  The person tends to be either quite sensitive spiritually and emotionally or unable to see the higher purpose of unfortunate events. 

The potential is there to express or create an outstanding influence in the world, but often personal pressures cause the person to retreat from the world or to shine brightly only occasionally. 

 

Master Numbers Encourage Us to Search and Understand

Parents of children with one or more Master numbers might do well to encourage the child to spend time alone to be able to focus on subjects of interest, read, write, meditate, or just stare at the wall.  The minds of these children may need, more than others, time to rest and reflect.

 

Master Numbers Encourage Attention to Service to Others

Each Master number has potential in its own way and its own field.  The holder of a Master number must gain mastery over his or her lesser nature, without giving into negative states of addiction, guilt, blame, resentment, victimhood, helplessness, or  hyper self-criticism.

 

Any Number Contains a Spectrum of Positive and Negative Potential

Few of us achieve the highest fulfillment promised by the numbers of our life purpose.  Some, like unsung heroes, quietly fulfill their destiny unseen.  Others, like the patient father, loyal wife, or good samaritan manage to blossom in a small sphere of influence. Still others are destined to use their potential for far-reaching good (or evil). 

The Master numbers–no more or less than regular numbers–must make constant soul choices.  Throughout our many lifetimes, we journey on the high roads and the low roads, as our Soul cycles through the many experiences necessary for complete experience, understanding, and enlightenment.

 

11 (2) — The Inspirer–the mystic, dreamer, artist, who must discover the insights he or she is here to share with others. An 11 may find him or herself in the limelight, spotlight, or on the podium as a public speaker or minister. Ironically, 11 can be the celebrity, and 2 is more comfortable in the background as a loving, selfless, supporter of others. By developing your talents and interests, you gain the ability to share new ideas with others. Possible flaws: shyness, insecurity, anxiety, people-pleasing, procrastination, lack of patience or tact.

 

22 (4) –The Master Builder–the practical visionary.  22 is a master of social connection and spiritual values, desiring to be made manifest in the material world (4). The double 2 is an emphasis on the feminine, receptive and magnetic archetype.  Therefore 22(4) may be concerned with supporting women issues regarding health, human rights, and economic opportunity. Possible flaws: control issues, over-work, fanatical idealism, cynicism.

 

33 (6) — The Master Teacher/Master Healer.  33 naturally gravitates to participating in just causes and missions.  A 33 is born into a lifelong awareness of the importance of tradition,family duties and responsibilities.The interests of 33 include a wide-range of philosophical approaches and healing techniques, and may have outstanding talent in acting, music, art, or singing. Thirty-three strives to provide exceptional and healthy experiences to others through the avenues of education, nutrition, yoga, acupuncture, massage, pyschotherapy, parenting, gerontology, advocacy, spirituality, or organized religion. Possible flaws: martyrdom, sacrifice of personal needs, over-work, fanaticism, giving unsolicited advice, family interference.

 

44 (8) –The Chief Executive.  The two 4’s and total of 8 highlight an unusually shrewd, capable, logical, realistic, and driven nature.  At its best 44 (8) leads others to great heights of achievement and stands for the highest ethics, feats of manufacturing or engineering, financial wealth, and the law.  If in a position of unlimited power, the 44 could become power-hungry, self-serving and indifferent to the needs of lesser beings.  Possible flaws:  greed, hardness of heart, over-materialistic view of life, unrealistic expectations, cynicism, or a Machievellian nature.

 

55 (1) — The Innovator.  The two 5’s emphasize a highly curious, active, and forward-thinking nature. The passion of 55 is freedom and exploration. The lifelong lesson is to learn the right use of choice and will power.  Endowed with keen powers of observation and analysis, 55 has an outstanding ability to see potential before others do. The path that usually feels right to 55 involves uncharted territory, and a chance to bring something different, new, or original to market. Possible flaws: scattered efforts, addictions, dissipation of energy, fear of boredom, not using your talents, or getting trapped in unrewarding pursuits.

 

66 (3) — Personal Transformation. The two 6’s bring forward a profound compassion, the desire for justice, and a deep faith in positive outcomes. Sixty-six’s eloquence, loving nature, humor, and charm attract people from all walks of life.  Color, beauty, family, friendships, and joyful community are the heart and soul of this Master number. Negative experiences don’t keep 66 down for long, as creative ways are usually found to work through hardship, usually by helping someone else or motivating others through a positive attitude. Possible flaws: over-optimism, gullibility, becoming too involved in outcomes, impractical idealism, over-promising.

 

Because the Life Path is calculated on the month, day, and year of birth, (especially when first reducing each of the three number to a single digit) it would be unlikely to find a higher number than 66.

 

WALKING YOUR PATH

Walking your particular Life Path will require you to first learn about and work with the core challenges and opportunities that can present themselves to you as you mature and grow. For instance, finding ways to become more ordered and less chaotic, rather than struggling against structure and authority, especially if you have Life Path 4.

 

The challenges, opportunities and experiences that occur in your life can best be used as gateways into deeper understanding of your Life Path. Whatever life is trying to bring to you is vital toward living fully and happily. If you back away from your life experiences, then you are walking away from your Life Path. It is up to you to have the resolve and courage, like the hero of your own story, to find a way to accept the call.

 

Living your life consciously will help you to follow your Life Path in a way that is inventive, creative and fun and inspiring to yourself and others. Fully living through your Life Path is about recognizing that life can be vibrant and challenging at the same time. It’s about finding ways to be the initiator. And, it’s about taking on challenges in your own way without disconnecting from life, or unnecessarily pushing away the people that are important to you.

Steve Beckow – One and Only Assignment – Lifetime after Lifetime – 10-24-14

 

Please let me comment on the significance of the rise of interest in spirituality as a result of this “process” that many of us seem to be going through.

God is a Spirit and can only be known in spirit, Jesus said two millennia ago. And knowing God is the assignment we all have in common and the reason why we’re here lifetime after lifetime, as my vision from 1987 showed. Rumi phrased the matter this way:

“There is one thing in this world which must never be forgotten. If you were to forget everything else, but did not forget that, then there would be no cause for worry; whereas if you performed and remembered and did not forget every single thing, but forgot that one thing, then you would have done nothing whatsoever.

“It is just as if a king had sent you to the country to carry out a specified task. You go and perform a hundred other tasks; but if you have not performed that particular task on account of which you had gone to the country, it is as if you have performed nothing at all. So man has come into this world for a particular task, and that is his purpose; if he does not perform it, then he will have done nothing.” (1)

No matter what else we do, no matter how noble or consequential it is, if we don’t know ourselves as God, we haven’t accomplished our assignment; we have done nothing.

As our knowledge of our own true nature expands, we move from stage to stage in our spiritual evolution, by what you could think of as Ascension after Ascension. And Rumi describes that as well.

“I died as mineral and became a plant.
I died as plant and rose to animal.
I died as animal and I was man. …
Yet once more I shall die as man, to soar
With angels blest; but even from angelhood
I must pass on: all except God doth perish.
When I have sacrificed my angel soul,
I shall become what no mind e’er conceived.
Oh, let me not exist! For Non-existence
Proclaims in organ tones, ‘To Him we shall return.’” (2)

The way I understand this Ladder of Ascension is that each kingdom – mineral, plant, etc. – has twelve planes or dimensions and within each plane are twelve subplanes. When we jump a plane (not a subplane), that constitutes an Ascension. We ascend from dimension to dimension, not from gradations within any one dimension.

We are constantly ascending, progressing, or evolving subplane after subplane, plane after plane, and kingdom after kingdom on our return journey to God. And we ascend as the result of increases in our spiritual knowledge – not our material knowledge necessarily, but our knowledge of ourselves as spirits and Spirit.

So to experience, as I do, an increase in my desire for spirituality, an expansion of the thirst for spiritual knowledge, is something whose value I understand and whose onset I welcome. It can always and only be a promising and beneficial thing. As I said yesterday, and I feel it bears repeating: Place spirituality first and everything else will find its natural place.

No matter how interesting, rewarding, and revolutionary NESARA, Disclosure and accountability are, remove “spiritual evolution” from them and they become merely matters of passing interest. For me anyways, it’s only their promise in assisting our knowledge of our true nature to unfold that makes them ultimately valuable.

Otherwise they’re simply the king’s official having been sent into a country to do something he did not do.

Having said that, it’s equally true to say that I have grown comfortable in representing NESARA, Disclosure and accountability as being important of and in themselves and will now face a personal minor shift in seeing them through this new lens that’s being offered as a result of this post-transition transition.

One transition is no sooner finished than the next begins and all of them opening us wider or opening newer doors than we anticipated beforehand.

That’s all I wanted to say for the moment. I just needed to put a bookmark in and say that this fueling of an interest in the spiritual is not a trivial development but might ordinarily go unmemorialized, so unremarkable is it on the surface. But it isn’t unremarkable in reality. It’s highly significant in its portent.

And with that, I’m simply going to open to it like the uninvited but most welcome guest who forever dropped into Rumi’s humble home.
