There are two major schools of thought relative to Embodied Enlightenment.
- One is that our human self has virtually no say in all of the transforming taking place. It’s at the complete mercy of these rarified energies of light being downloaded into our bodies and our lives. If our soul wants us to have all these sometimes unbearable challenges, both physically and emotionally, there is nothing we can do but concede. Eventually our human self just melds into our I Am.
- Another perspective is that Enlightenment is all about becoming a healthier, younger, wealthier version of our old, human self. But we will have the bonus of being able to move objects at will, and heal the sick. We become a ‘better’ human.
Is it any wonder there is confusion and even disappointment in this process? It is neither of those versions.
Yes, it feels like we are being thrown around and our lives are upside down. But it’s not because spirit wants us to go through pain and suffering. It’s not for any type of ‘lessons.’ We are beyond lessons.
The pain we feel is the resistance that has been a deep part of our being for eons. It will bring up various issues to be released. It is also the light body adjusting to the human body and vice versa. There is no intent on spirit’s side to have a difficult time. But unfortunately, it is part of this process. Most of the physical and emotional conditions we inherited are in the process of being resolved. Albeit more slowly than we are comfortable with.
But because we wanted to take the accelerated path this lifetime, we are facing a boat load of resistance. The bigger the dream, the more resistance.
If we look at some people’s lives, they are relatively healthy. They seem to be doing fine. They are not going through much physically or emotionally. No major dilemmas. But they are not asking for very much either.
We are. We are the pioneers who stepped forward and said we wanted to be the first to go into the New Energy. And, by the way, we are the ones who are bringing in that New Energy to the planet. So we are asking, big time. We are receiving, big time.
THE ODD COUPLE
So this enlightenment is a partnership. The human is not pushed aside, nor is it taken over by spirit. It may feel that way because when spirit is invited in, it feels completely different from the human. Different, not better. Two completely opposites coming together can be, initially, like The Odd Couple times a billion.
But our soul is still getting to know us as the human, on such an intimate level. It’s in the process of regaining the human’s trust. We trusted spirit as little children, didn’t we? But we had to push spirit aside for survival purposes. Consequently we felt abandoned. We played out those feelings with our parents, our mates, and others.
When I allow my Divine Presence in my body, it feels amazing. I feel expansive. I feel really turned on by simple things. But it’s not like being under the influence of a substance type of high. It’s focused. I am both outside and inside my reality, and I am perfectly functioning. I can drive, walk, and do any of a number of things that require focus.
During those times I have no concerns about my safety, or my health, or finances, or relationships. My human mind is still there, but it’s not nagging at me. I can still feel in the background, the limited thoughts and emotions to a degree. But they are not players in those moments.
And I am always in control of how much I will allow in of this ecstatic presence. When I am alone I feel the fullness of it. When I am in public I will tone it down a bit. That will probably change over time as I become more comfortable with it.
Spirit in its unbridled joy can be a bit rambunctious. Like a child who just wants to play. How long has it been since we have allowed that feeling, of just wanting to play?
In fact, many of us were warned by well-meaning humans, not to get too ‘high’ because there will be a price to pay.
But what a price we have been paying, for playing in the sandbox of lack and limitation.
So our human self, while it is only a temporary self while here on Earth, is just as important as our Expanded self. Without our human self, our soul couldn’t experience this reality.
Besides, our soul is absolutely fine with our human self just as it is. It really isn’t trying to change that self. It just wants to be in its life. And in my experience, my life is so much sweeter, so much more sensual, and so much more fun with my soul.
