Women As Ascended Masters

Art by a Maria Chambers

It is true that as our soul, we are genderless, but I find it interesting that most of the Ascended Masters I have heard of have been men.  One could argue that history, in this case spiritual history, had a way of not recognizing the achievements of the female of our species.  But I suspect that’s not the case here.

So, female Ascended Masters. Mother Theresa doesn’t count.  She never got past playing the martyr.  Yeshua played the martyr at the end there…but then he transcended it when he recognized that playing martyr gets you nowhere. Continue reading

Martyrdom Is Dead

 Are any of you still dragging your misplaced sense of obligation, and of emotional responsibility toward others with you into the new energy?

Maybe you are disguising it in terms like, “wanting to be of service to others, and to humanity.”  Wanting to “be there” for friends and family.

This will not lead you to your freedom, any more than it will help anyone else. Continue reading

If You Haven’t Found Your Passion, Look Again

Many people on the ascension path are concerned that they don’t have a single passion or purpose that they could sink their teeth into. They may feel bored and want to do something creative. They look around sometimes and see others deeply immersed in professions or avocations and they wonder why they themselves can’t seem to find that singular passion. In fact when they look at their life they may never have had a single driving passion.

In my own life as I reflect, I really did not have any single passion other than wanting to express through whatever medium may have been available. I enjoyed art for many years, creating drawings, paintings and sculptures. But it wasn’t an everyday passion. I majored in art in college and I obtained a master of arts degree in graduate school. But quite honestly, I never really followed it as a profession or a career. Overall I followed whatever felt interesting in the moment, even at one time opening up an art supply and custom framing store with my husband. (now ex husband, who still runs the business).  I worked at it for ten years, and it was quite successful, but even there I did not feel a driving passion for the work.  I felt then a need to move on from that business and that husband.  For quite a long time I thought I lacked something because I did not have that drive and dedication.   I thought, maybe I am not taking myself seriously enough, maybe I just don’t believe in myself enough, and all kinds of other justifications for not following unwaveringly one creative path.

It took me quite a long time but I began to realize that there was absolutely nothing wrong with any of that. Many of us came into this lifetime with a passion to awaken. And, it really does not matter what we do or not do. We do not have to build careers or avocations if we do not feel that drive. Because, we are actually already doing our passion. Of course society for the most part does not recognize that we are doing that, so we may get criticism.  We may be told we are lazy, or unambitious, or are spreading ourselves in too many directions.  That we lack focus.

I had the credentials if I wanted to teach art on a university or college level. But I really did not, after all that education, want to pursue that path. I ended up taking odd jobs here and there that had really nothing to do with my creativity. But, regardless of the relationships I found myself in, or the jobs I worked at to earn money, I always found the time and resources to be creative if the desire was strong enough.

So if any of you ever feel that perhaps you are not finding that one thing that’s going to give you that joy, and that because you can’t find that one thing, there’s something wrong with you, there isn’t. You are just where you need to be. If you feel like developing a career or teaching what you have learned about ascension, or writing or anything of that nature then of course pursue it. But if you find yourself just wanting to relax in life, and just do whatever feels good in the moment, you have already found your sweet spot, you just don’t realize it.

So many of us on the leading edge of ascension are recognizing that we are fulfilling our passion. And that passion is to love ourselves unconditionally, to invite our spirit, our soul into our bodies and our lives, and to enjoy this life. We are here to release old stuck energies, to transform ourselves from the inside out, and to share that experience as much as we enjoy sharing it, with others of like mind.

If that’s not a passion then what is?

Three Friends

Today I ran across three friends, the owl, the turtle and the egret.  Well, actually I saw the owl the other night perched upon a post outside my apartment.  Today I almost ran over a large turtle sauntering lazily across the parking lot.  And at the cafe I was approached by an egret.  While these creatures are not uncommon down here in Florida, they seemed to be ‘up close and personal’ and so I decided to look into the messages they were giving me.

owlThe owl is an age-old symbol of wisdom and intuition.  It is the ability to see what is hidden to most.  It is a symbol of the practice of discernment.  A quiet observation of our surroundings.  The ability to know what is going on beneath the surface in others, in spite of their words or actions.  I am slowly trusting the wisdom of my intuition, in regards to others in my life.  To sense what is going on beneath the surface.  They may appear to be doing and saying the right things, they may be sweet, generous, and attentive, but if I am feeling something is not in balance, I need not respond.  They may have very personal motives which are generated from a place of feeling unfulfilled, and consequently there may be a feeding going on.

The owl is also alerting me that I am being seduced by the fears of my own mind, rather than trusting the wisdom and intuition of my very soul.

Turtle

The turtle is a symbol of adapting to new surroundings and environments, while maintaining a comfortable self-pace.  Not to push self too fast.  All things come in perfect and divine timing.  Patience.  It retreats into its shell to protect itself from negativity and there strengthens itself to prepare to re-emerge.  It goes inside to find peace  It opens itself up to imagination and intuition, where anything is possible.  It symbolizes longevity and immortality, and reminds us that the way to heaven is through the earth.  So it may be time for me to just be, to retreat into my spiritual center.  To be at peace with where I am at and to be in the moment.

IMG_1300The egret is a creature that has one foot in the water and one on land.  It goes with the flow, and is comfortable in spaces that are neither here nor there.  And that is the space that I find myself in now, that so many of us find ourselves in now…the place of no man’s land….the in between space where we are not yet feeling the love and support from our soul to the degree we want, yet we are no longer on solid ground with our old life.  So it is a message to me , to just be at peace with this space.  That this is just a transitional place.

Reminders To Us All

During these times it is easy to get swept up in a feeling of being out of control of our life, since we have kept a tight rein on it with our minds, our human personalities for eons.  Right now, as we invite our soul more into our bodies and our lives, our minds are feeling even more scared.  Our mind can’t do what it used to do, manage our lives.  In fact, it never could do what we wanted it to do, which was bring us joy.

What I was reminded of from my dear friends, the owl, the turtle and the egret, was that it’s not necessary to push this process.  It’s happening anyway.  There is within each of us a deep undercurrent of wisdom, of peace, of passion, of connection with the Earth.  Within us is the knowledge that life wants to serve us, and that it is safe to be here on Earth.  Our job is only to ALLOW our soul to carry us now…and also to be patient with our human self because from its perspective this is not familiar territory.  Trust that when it feels right to rest, you rest.  When it feels right to express,  find a way to do that.  When it feels right to cry, to laugh, to be angry, do that.  Be as gentle and compassionate with yourself as you have been with others.

And most importantly, know that your truth is in the wisdom of your soul, not in the musings of your mind.  And your soul is that part of YOU that is whole and complete, that part of you that knows only joy, and knows that all is possible.
