Selacia Council of 12 Message for Oct. 2007: Part II - A Focus on Truth
Set your intention right now to be one of the ones who seriously questions what is happening, and to take conscious responsible action in the world to be a positive force for change. Intend that you do this continually, regardless of what seems to be happening. Remember that your intentions and actions count.
The momentum of change is all around you. You can see evidence of it regularly. Noticing the discontent in people and their desire for something brand new can become inspirational reminders that people are growing less accepting of conventional ways of being. When you view it this way, rather than as a reminder of how much everyone is suffering, you shift your vibration higher. This view may also inspire you to be of more service to others.
In 2008, people in all corners of the world will have less tolerance of lies, hidden agendas, broken promises, cover-ups, and deceit of all kinds. These ways of being, and public outcry about them, will be more out in the open than ever before.
Differing points of view about truth will continue to be a source of conflict, on both a personal level and within groups of people. Most of the wars fought between peoples have involved disagreements involving truth. Some cultures teach the idea that there will be a final battle between good and evil, and that only certain "good" ones-classified by their idea of "good"-will survive and be "saved." Other cultures have very different ideas of truth. The truths at issue will always be relative truths, based on the conventional reality.
Your truth may look quite different than another person's. Truth is sometimes thought of as what you think is real. Consider that, without a full awareness of reality, including the physical and nonphysical, it is impossible to know truth except in relative terms.
Waking Up to Human Interconnectedness
Thanks in part to the power of the media, growing numbers of the world's population are now realizing the interconnected stream of energy that has always impacted the diverse forms of life on the planet. A war or peacemaking event in one place impacts the whole.
Oppressed peoples in one country become a cause of global outrage. A large-scale natural disaster in one place stirs compassion and aid relief from strangers living half way around the world. A new discovery in medicine in one country helps to resolve a health crisis for a threatened impoverished culture.
The need for joining together and helping one another has never been more urgent. In the next few years, humanity as a species will have the opportunity to fully understand human interconnectedness and to utilize this to help create a brand new world.
Checklist for Personal Transformation in 2008
The following are some guidelines for approaching your own personal transformation in 2008. Become still and move your focus to your heart as you read these words. Invite your intuitively guided reason to show you which of these is a priority for right now. Then, as 2008 begins, review this list again in the same way, noticing if the priority has shifted and if you have new insights about your personal journey.
1. Observe your mind. Become more aware of what you are thinking, what you focus on, and what you repeat over and over to yourself like a broken record. This will give you clues about what belief systems you hold within you at the DNA level.
2. Learn to focus your mind. You can do a number of things at one time, yet your mind can only efficiently focus on one thing at a time. Notice when you go out of focus, putting your attention on another topic. Practice focusing your mind on something positive you wish to create or experience.
3. Bring your intuitive right brain more into your everyday experience. As an example, as you focus on something you desire to create, imagine your creation in living color with details filled in. Allow your right brain to come up with additional details you may not have included when thinking of your creation through logic alone.
4. Question. Set your intent to question things you have never questioned before. Then get into the habit of questioning what your world presents. It could be a television show that glorifies meanness, your doctor giving a dire prognosis, or your government officials voting away your freedom of choice. It could be something personal, such as a relationship challenge or your own doubts that you have made any progress in recent years. Question these things and more.
5. Take action on your questioning. If you inquired within about your doctor's prognosis and received very emphatic intuitive guidance that your doctor doesn't have all the information-another more positive outcome being possible-refuse to let the doctor's prognosis decide the outcome. Be willing to take every step you can to create a different outcome. Invite a Divine solution and ask to be shown the way, a step at a time. Continue to trust what your heart tells you is true for you.
6. Do not settle for an everyday approach to personal growth. Conventional approaches do not allow you to progress spiritually. You have not come here to be conventional. You are here to make a new mold. Ask to be guided to new paradigm methods of healing and knowing the Self. Find and apply new approaches in ways that suit the particular approach. Have the courage to stick with it, even when your lifestyle seems increasingly foreign when compared with that of the everyday person. .Remember during times when your courage wavers that you did not incarnate this lifetime to simply continue your cycle of ordinary existence. You came to rediscover the Divine at the core of your being.
7. Become more compassionate. Without compassion for yourself and others, you will not be able to realize your true Divine nature.
8. Drop all judgments. Set your intention that you will become more awake to your judgments. Humans have a habitual tendency to judge everyone and everything. This puts people and things into boxes labeled right and wrong, good and bad. When you judge, you reinforce the polarity of opposites. In the process, you limit yourself. Decide that you will judge less and be more accepting of what is.
9. Reassess and update your relationship with yourself regularly. Get into the habit of frequently asking yourself whether your life is reflecting the new paradigm road you desire to travel. At home, for example, you can reevaluate your environment, your lifestyle, and even your clothes. Consider whether some modifications are in order. You may have an extra bedroom filled with things you hardly ever use, and you've been wondering where you would find a quiet space for your meditation practice. Perhaps some reorganization could serve a number of purposes. Another example could be your quiet time, and the realization that you would like to devote more time to inner reflection and being still. Consider what outside distractions and other factors you would need to address. A third example involves looking at your use of time and energy in the context of the path you want to travel. One week you may have invitations to become involved in several diverse projects. When you carefully evaluate each one-using your heart's wisdom and keeping the big picture in mind-you may realize that at least one of the projects may divert you from your goals. You may discover that there are much better uses of your time and energy.
10. Trust that you will be guided to solutions. Regardless of how hopeless a personal dilemma may seem, it is important that you trust there is a Divine solution. Invite in this solution and then be open to how and when it shows up. The solution that is perfect for you may not be the solution that would work for others, yet it will be exactly what you need. If your dilemma remains unresolved after a time, it is important that you are willing to simply be with your condition. If you can learn to trust what is and to know that there is always a higher purpose to things, you can find peace.
11. Use your time wisely. Remember that each moment and each new day is an opportunity to grow spiritually, to love, and to progress on your path of light. Set your intention that you will make full use of your gift of physical life. Treasure the moments during which you experience love, openings, and awakening to the movement of spirit. Let go of the rest.
12. Go gently with yourself. Treat yourself as you would a best friend. When you know you need to rest, don't push yourself needlessly. When you have suffered a major disappointment, be kind to yourself. When you don't meet your own expectations, resist the temptation to criticize yourself.
As you continue the journey of rediscovering your Divine nature, we surround you with our love and blessings. We are The Council of 12.
