Selacia Council of 12 Message for Apr. 2008: Part II - Your Place in the World
When you embrace the need to radically transform yourself and the way that life is lived, it doesn't take long to realize you can't do it alone. While it may appear that you are single-handedly working on a personal issue, you don't do so in an energetic bubble. You impact others around you, and you are impacted by a diverse set of people including those you will never meet in person.
You are also affected by planetary energies, and when this impact feels negative, you will naturally seek the comfort that comes from knowing others are in the same boat. Sometimes you receive this reassurance directly from a friend or loved one. Other times, you receive it indirectly by reading something or seeing a movie. The more that you pay attention to the subtle messages of spirit in your life, the more you will notice receiving validations from seemingly random sources. An example is when you are standing in line at the grocery store and overhear a conversation that speaks to what you have been feeling.
When you acknowledge your interconnections with the world, and allow them to fuel your transformation, you place yourself on the fast track of personal growth. The paradigm shift begins inside of you, yet it requires your engagement with the world. When you interact with others, they can show you truths about yourself that you could not easily uncover on your own.
You can think of it as the world being your feedback system, giving you clues about how to move through challenges with more ease. It's more than learning from others' mistakes. Sometimes, as you observe another person mired in a dilemma, they haven't yet made the mistake you can clearly see is in the making. On other occasions, when you observe someone else's dysfunctional relationship, it may be easier to identify your own hang-ups.
Sparking Beneficial Changes in Others
Another benefit of connecting with others is that when you do, you can spark beneficial changes in their lives. Oftentimes this happens without your conscious awareness. When you spark a beneficial change in someone else, there is a domino effect, with numerous people being positively impacted over time.
That includes yourself, of course, since beneficial energies you express in the world will return to you as a positive force at some future time. Therefore, regularly connecting with others is essential to your role as a Divine Changemaker.
Changing yourself is a personal matter and done from the inside out, and yet it is not accomplished alone. You require assistance, not because you are inherently lacking, but because of your limiting human conditioning.
In general, regardless of how advanced you are, it can be challenging to see clearly into all aspects of your issues. You will benefit from working with a skilled and competent person outside your close circle of friends and family. It could be a healer or someone with another job description.
Why is this helpful? You are simply too close to the issue at hand, and you have a vested interest in the outcome. Being impartial, then, is problematic. You may be a very skilled healer and able to work on yourself, yet your most troublesome issues can be difficult to access alone. For the same reason, it can be challenging to heal your own loved one, even when you know them better than anyone else.
The Impact of Human Conditioning
What is the limiting conditioning humans have had? Key elements include personal disempowerment, disconnection from spirit, and an isolationist view of reality.
You have forgotten just how powerful you truly are! You are a natural creator, for example, yet you have learned to place outside authorities in charge. You have learned to fear change and chaos, yet these elements are a natural part of creating anything new.
You have been conditioned to doubt yourself and to feel insufficient, resulting in a lowered self esteem and general disempowerment.
You lack a fusion of your physical reality with the force of spirit. Through countless experiences, you learned to separate physical reality from spirit. In doing so, you lost your "home base" that could naturally be with you anywhere, in any reality. That navigation tool became covered with dust and in the "off" mode for long periods of time.
You have forgotten the interrelated connectedness of your world. Even though you hold within your DNA concepts of connectedness, you also carry polar opposite concepts of separation. These false notions of disconnection have been continually challenged in the last century with the introduction of innovations like space travel, the internet, real-time world media coverage, and increased routine movement of people and goods across country borders.
You have amnesia about your past lives, forgetting their painful lessons as well as the amazing abilities you mastered in other times and places.
You have learned to think of yourself, once grown, as independent of your family. As part of this, you haven't learned to associate your challenges and dysfunctional patterns with your family's lineage going back numerous generations.
Transcending Your Conditioning
Once you acknowledge your conditioning, you have more power to transcend it. It's also helpful to remember that your brothers and sisters on the path of Light have had much of the same conditioning in their human evolutionary cycle.
Remembering this can help you to feel less alone on your journey, while also helping you to generate compassion for yourself and others. Being mindful of humanity's similar conditioning can also help you to become more accepting of your circumstances, including difficult situations involving other people.
The more that you can express compassion and acceptance for what "is," the higher your energy vibration will be. When you stop going to war about what "is" and move into acceptance, you free up a tremendous force of creative and healing energy.
When you broadcast, from your energy field, the qualities of compassion and acceptance, you will draw to yourself an increasing number of positive experiences.
As an example, when you express compassion, you are more likely to receive compassionate treatment in the world. Also, when you are compassionate, people are more likely to be magnetized to you.
Accelerating Your Transformation
When you learn to let go of feeling that you are either better than others, or more handicapped than others, you can greatly accelerate your spiritual transformation. Why? First, you will be more open to receiving insights that come directly or indirectly from your interactions with others. Second, you will begin to see yourself more clearly once you drop the judgments and comparisons.
Third, you will be more willing to reach out to others for assistance. Fourth, this willing and receptive attitude can connect you with more like-minded souls. Fifth, you will be more receptive to the guidance and other help that others can give you. Sixth, when you are counseled to consider a change in course, you will be more likely to give the suggestion serious thought, and if appropriate, take action on it.
To be personally empowered, you must have the ability to move beyond your resistance, beyond your arrogance, and into a state of willingness. When you are willing, rather than willful, you have the openness required to catalyze true and lasting changes.
This openness will help you with both your own personal transformation but also in being a potent force for good in the world. Regardless of the type of work that you do, the consciousness that you personally bring to the work is a pivotal factor in how much beneficial impact you can have during the paradigm shift.
