As we go through the awakening process, we begin to feel detached from family, friends, co-workers, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, fathers and mothers, offspring, the community, and mass consciousness. We no longer feel attached to the role of father, mother, sister, brother, son, daughter, husband, wife, accountant, artist, musician, writer, caretaker.
Getting recognition from the outside, from others, just doesn’t satisfy us any more. Our accomplishments, our achievements seem to pale in comparison to what we desire now. Doing and goal setting seem things of the past for us. And when we try to go back to that way of being, things just get mucked up. Or nothing happens.
We’re not totally certain what we are walking into, but we know it is amazing, and we are beginning to feel like we are just getting in our own way. There seems to be this empty space. This nothingness, feeling detached and bored. And because we are uncomfortable with the seemingly empty space we find ourselves in, we attempt to fill it up with activity or worry. We are addicted to doing. We need to do something, anything but just relax and allow.
We are in the process of releasing our ancestral lineage, which goes back thousands and thousands of years. We have been carrying around the emotional, mental and physical attributes of our ancestors since we came here. And it has kept us stuck in many ways. So many patterns of behavior, beliefs, physical imbalances and diseases are the product of our ancestors. We had an influence on our bodies and our creations but it seemed so many times they were sabotaged by some type of limitation.
But now all that is changing. We are reaching a time where we now can consciously release, through ascension, the limitations of our past. It is to honor our ancestors and release them with love. There will be resistance because we are leaving the familiar. The resistance comes in because who we are has been an accumulation of lifetimes of experiences, and has been for the most part influenced by our family bloodline. Even if we think we broke out of the family dynamics we still carried patterns of thought and bodily conditions and attributes through our DNA. It is hard to imagine ourselves without a connection to our ancestors. To imagine being able to consciously create from such clarity. Of course there are many beautiful energies that our ancestors have contributed to our makeup. But now it is time to release them and for what, we ask?
For our freedom. For our enlightenment. For the experience of being in a physical body that is now the product of our awakened self.
But we can’t have it both ways. We can’t move into our embodied enlightenment without releasing our ancestors.
It is unchartered territory. This is revolutionary. But for many of us, we wanted this to be the lifetime. We wanted to do it now. We didn’t want to wait for humanity to catch up. For many of us, this will be our last lifetime in the cycle of reincarnations. We don’t want to come back for yet another lifetime in order to go through the awakening process.
Many of us said, “ENOUGH!.” We are ready. We are willing to have patience with our human self, and with our body, but we said, “I’ll do whatever it takes to become enlightened in this lifetime.”
Many of us who came in as the female gender wanted to be the last of our lineage to carry the burden of being the emotional caretakers. We wanted to set ourselves free. To become a self-loving, enlightened woman who no longer cares about making others comfortable at the expense of her own joy.
For men perhaps it’s to finally give themselves permission to allow life to serve them, to allow all their feelings. To receive from life, from spirit without pushing and trying. To let go of the need for power through achievements, money, position. To get out of the mental prison.
And for all of us, it is to feel that love from our soul that has been calling us for a long time.
This ascension is about coming home. Coming home to the sweet love of our soul. But in order for that to happen in completion, it also requires saying goodbye. Saying goodbye to parts of ourselves and our past. Those people from our past and all of our experiences since we came to this planet. It’s releasing and saying goodbye with love in our hearts. It’s not about forgetting it is just about releasing. It is about releasing our human self from the burdens of having to carry us in this lifetime. So it is saying goodbye to our old identity of that human who must shoulder the burdens and the responsibilities for our life. That hurts our heart a little. It is who we have known ourselves to be for such a long, long time.
But let’s look at it a little differently now, from the perspective of our soul. Now, we can enjoy life without the fears and anxieties that seem to color our experience here. And with the love that we are feeling from our soul naturally our body and our finances just come back into balance. Aren’t we ready for that? For a joyful life experience in a healthy body. That is waiting for us as well. And we are free to visit any of those experiences and people from our past anytime we want to. They are not really lost to us nor we to them. As we set ourselves free, we give all of them the opportunity to set themselves free. We do not have to discard our cherished memories. All of that can come with us. We are just setting ourselves free from the hardships that we have placed upon ourselves.
