Selacia Council of 12 Message for July 2008: Part II - Living in Times of Great Change
The following is an example of how fear can distort your reality. Your typical livelihood may be threatened by an economic downturn or other changes in your workplace. Perhaps funding for your type of job is in question. You are very good at what you do, and you would like to continue doing it.
You know that you have additional skills, too, which could be applied to other things, but your fear causes you to overlook this. Your focus, instead, is on the possible "loss" and your desire to keep things on your own terms.
That focus, of course, is your fear talking and not your intuitively guided reason.
When you investigate your fear, you may discover that it is based on some outmoded belief systems recorded in your DNA. These beliefs, stored in your subconscious mind and out of ordinary view, may come from your ancestral lineage.
In a way, these beliefs are part of you, for they are in your DNA, yet in another way, they are old energy you took on from people of long ago who lived in different times.
When you realize you have these limiting beliefs, of course, you see how debilitating they are to the current "you" of this lifetime. You understand that these belief systems are casting a dark shadow on your experience, preventing you from seeing things clearly.
Your ancestors may have lived during a time when it was the norm to work in the family business. That work was their livelihood, and the fruits of it were enjoyed by subsequent generations when children matured and took over responsibilities.
Perhaps war or lengthy severe weather patterns destroyed the family business. The young man just about to take over his father's role was forced into a life of servitude with another family far away.
This young man, one of your ancestors, in response to what happened, developed the following belief systems that were passed down through the generations to you.
1. When I lose my job, I lose my freedom.
2. When a business fails, I fail.
3. When my business collapses, I am never successful again.
4. When my job ends, I am poor.
5. When my family has misfortune, I am destined to have misfortune.
6. When I lose my job, I lose the place I know as home.
If you have beliefs such as these in your DNA and your livelihood is threatened, the potential job loss can catalyze the beliefs into active expression. Then, without your conscious direction, these fear-based beliefs can begin influencing how you respond to the uncertainty at work.
Typically when this happens it's a very subtle, but potent, force in the background. Since the beliefs triggered are from your subconscious and not from something you personally experienced this life, it's unlikely that you connect the dots to recognize what is occurring.
Changing Beliefs in Your DNA
When you become aware of the specific limiting beliefs you hold in such a circumstance-and clear them from your DNA at the origination point-you can begin to change your experience of economic downturns and job losses.
When you change your experience of something, it's more about changing your view and response to what is occurring.
You can't always prevent a job loss or some other type of misfortune. However, when you embody authentic power, you don't let these things defeat you. You see losses and other difficulties as vehicles for learning and growth.
You know that oftentimes these situations are quite different than they appear. You have learned to see them as spirit's nudges to think differently, or to move into other directions more in alignment with your soul's path.
To be sure, many of the changes involved in the paradigm shift involve this last point. This is true for individuals as well as for the myriad of societal structures and approaches that were birthed in the much different times.
Humans on a Fast Track of Learning
Humans are on a fast track in learning new more enlightened ways to live together.
Groups of people-assembled in apartment building hallways, town halls, national capitals, and international think tanks-are moving beyond the "ME" and "what about us?" consciousness to consider innovative bridge-building solutions to impact the whole.
Some of humanity's most brilliant inventions may come out of these times.
The momentum of positive change is accelerating at lightning speed, regardless of how it may appear much of the time. Remember this on the days when you feel that things aren't changing fast enough, and on the days when it appears your life has been turned upside down too fast.
Using Your Uneasiness as a Navigational Tool
Have you ever had a feeling that something was about to happen, yet you felt clueless about what it was or how it might affect you? Did you then get an uneasy feeling in the pit of your stomach or in your throat?
These days, if you feel uneasy some of the time, you are not alone. After all, so much is changing so fast, and it's increasingly common to feel a bit anxious about what's coming next.
It can be helpful if you learn to use your uneasiness as a navigational tool. Sometimes that uneasy feeling is a message from spirit to change course, or to sit still. At other times, it's simply your fear scaring you. Remember what fear is--False Evidence Appearing Real.
The following are suggestions to help you use your uneasiness as a navigational tool.
1. Don't be at war with your uneasiness.
2. Don't insist that it disappear.
3. Don't make it wrong.
4. Don't make it into more than it is.
5. Don't take action until you become clear about what your uneasiness is telling you.
6. Ask questions of your own intuitively guided reason to determine whether your uneasiness is simply your fear talking, or whether it's a message from spirit to be still, to change course, to be concerned, to take an immediate action, or to simply wait.
As you continue the journey of rediscovering your Divine nature, we surround you with our love and blessings. We are The Council of 12.
