One of the lessons you are here to learn is to trust: trust the Universe, Spirit, and your own intuition. All that you need can be provided, you just have to learn to trust, to let go of fear, doubt, insecurity and other such negative emotions. These “negative” feelings are brought forward from past incarnations; they need to be cleared from the soul memory. If they are not cleared away, they can prevent you from embodying of a state of trust.
The Ultimate Being – God, as many call this energy – cannot work through you if you have fear. Fear is negative energy and it blocks the flow of positive energy (trust) coming in. All that you need can be yours; your every need can be supplied if only you will release the fear and learn to trust.
Thought is energy. Every thought becomes something. From the moment of its conception, the thought becomes reality. Every time you think – whether good or bad – you immediately set up a reality. When you think a thought about something or someone, that thought is destined to manifest. If it does not, it goes back within your body. However, it does not go back to where it came from, because it has been created and cannot be uncreated. So it goes within the subtle body and stays there – unmoving, still, and waiting – until it can be used.
If it is not used (which is usually the case), then it becomes stagnant, negative energy. This stagnant, negative energy permeates the subtle body and eventually (because it is not going anywhere) creates blocks in your auric field. This energy then travels to a part of the body and gathers in the chakras. Then those thoughts start to affect the physical body and cause dis-ease on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
On the path of spiritual development, you need to understand how to utilize the power of water. Water is a powerful energy; Spirit uses water to generate energy. The energy generated by Spirit can be used for your own spiritual development, to help remove negative emotions, and to assist in creating peace in your living environment.
To facilitate your own development process, consider adding one or more fountains to your living space. When you do not have enough flowing water, Spirit will use other water in your home. In order to avoid a dripping sink or leaky faucet causing your problems, invest in an indoor fountain, it will give Spirit the running water needed to keep you and your home clear and cleansed.
Everyone on the Earth plane is a soul on a journey of soul evolution. Soul evolution is accomplished through paying and receiving karmic debt, working on letting go of past life energy and learning life lessons. Before you are born, you choose how each step of your journey can be fulfilled. The journey of this life begins at your birth and lasts the entire length of your life. You have a Guardian Spirit from the world of Spirit. The Guardian Spirit works beside you to help you create your life plan, and assists you in following through with your plan as your life unfolds. Your life plan makes use of your personal astrology to highlight times when you are going to experience certain events, issues, emotions, challenges and triumphs.
The life plan you have chosen is put into place for you to make choices, and take action, in regards to certain people, events or situations that occur. Each choice and each action is there in order to assist you in achieving your soul growth. Life does not have to be difficult, if you can recognize all of your experiences as learning and growing opportunities. And, since life is a journey, not a destination, you can enjoy the journey rather than rushing to finish it. Your life can be as easy or as difficult as you make it. You make it more difficult when you listen to your fear, stubbornness, pride, ego and Self; you make it easy by learning to control your mental/emotional body, looking within, and allowing the Universe to help. If you can do this, slowly your life will become better. It will not happen overnight, but it will happen with positive thinking, positive affirmations, positive attitude, trust, determination, patience and perseverance.
Before each soul incarnates on the Earth plane, they choose the many different opportunities for their learning in order to achieve soul growth. Your soul’s purpose is to be the creator of your own reality and to become the master of your own destiny. Every soul is made by the Creator of the Universe as equal, and yet is a unique Divine spark. Everyone comes from, and connects to, the energy of the Ultimate Being and is part of that energy. Everyone carries the essence of the Creator, and everyone is destined to be the creator of their own reality.
Spiritual development is not an easy path to take; it is a path of testing. Why? For when you embark on this path, you begin to clear away hundreds of incarnations of locked stale energy that has never been expressed. This energy began as a thought, either in this lifetime or a past lifetime, but was never spoken or acted upon. It stays within the body, and in the soul memory.
Each soul has chosen the time to be tested and how they will be tested in order for the soul to learn the lessons they have chosen. Each soul chooses to learn and grow through lessons, as it is those lessons that educate the soul and allow for soul memories to be released. Your spirit guides, guardians and the Masters manage the tests you have set up for your own spiritual development. You have chosen these tests before you were born, and generally there will be three rounds of testing for each lesson. If you fail the test, the lesson will be continually brought up in your life until it is completed. You will have to pass each of the three rounds of testing, or start all over once again. You will be tested again and again, until the lesson has been conquered.
To surrender requires you to have total trust and faith in Spirit and in the Universe. It requires you to leave the Self behind, and to allow the Universe to lead and guide you, step-by-step along the way of your life path. True surrender requires you to have courage to face your biggest fear and deepest darkness, with the faith in knowing that there is always a reason for everything. There is always a higher purpose for you to be where you are, and to do what you are doing. By surrendering to that, without having to question the why, how, what and who, and walking forward on your path, no matter how rocky it may be, you will discover a peace that passes all understanding. It takes a humble person to admit he or she is wrong, but mistakes and imperfection are necessary to the process of your soul journey.
Everyone is born to experience a life with happiness, joy, success, and abundance. However, many cannot create that success because the Self, like a dog with a bone, keeps chewing away at the negative energy from the past. Fear is the bane of the Earth plane, stopping each and every person from moving forward to take their rightful place among those who are successful, those who have already removed their fear.
Before you can be successful, you must destroy every part of the Self; if not, it will sabotage you and stop you from attaining the success you deserve. On a deep subconscious level is where the Self part of each individual resides. The Self is the embodiment of deep fear, as long as that fear is present, it will never allow you to open up fully into the person you can be. People spend their lives allowing their Self to do all sorts of things to stop them from having success without even realizing what is taking place.
The subconscious mind lies deep within your psyche, and your soul memory lies within your subconscious. In your subconscious, there is a memory bank that has stored everything that has ever happened throughout your soul’s journey – every thought, every emotion, every deed, and every action and reaction, from this life and all of your past lives. Although the majority of society does not realize what is in their subconscious mind, the subconscious is in control of your life. Until you are aware of it, you cannot begin to clear it. Every incarnation you have ever had is in your soul memory. If you have experienced a past life with trauma, sadness, grief, or other emotion and have not released the emotional energy, it will stay in your subconscious. As long as the experience remains there, it plays its role to influence your conscious mind and your life. The trapped and repressed emotions, unused thought energy, and unexpressed feelings, are all stored and recorded in your subconscious. The subconscious mind is more active than you can ever imagine. These trapped thoughts or conditions can become conditioned beliefs, programs and habits. These unreleased emotions and feelings can cause you to act or react out of fear, doubt, insecurity, anger, or jealousy. The subconscious mind will control your life and stop you from moving forward spiritually, until you are ready to look at it.
Why is it important to have time for silence? How can silence benefit your busy life? In silence, you can listen to the soul part of you. In silence you can speak to God. To be in silence does not mean that you have to sit in silence, stiff and upright, all it means that you need to be aware of the quiet and not be afraid of it.
When you are quiet, you are forced to look at the issues around you. When you are on your spiritual path, silence is a time for the Higher Self to show you what you need to look at. When you are silent, you can see the attributes you most need to work on in their full glory. In silence, you can also allow self-healing to take place. That occurs by the awareness of experiencing deep emotions, such as anger, pain, hurt, frustration, sadness and fear. By crying or releasing this energy, you free your body, mind and spirit from trapped negative energy.
