The Self-Help Mentality and the New Consciousness

36049805-c2df-46e7-bd01-36abd8183b9cEnlightenment.  It’s hard.  It tears your life apart.  Most of the Ascended Masters of the past left this planet pretty soon after their enlightenment.  Sticking around wasn’t a real option because they hadn’t prepared themselves or their bodies to make it practical.  Those of us who have decided to stay are going through Embodied enlightenment.  And, it’s also no picnic.

Who Am I?

Maria Art

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.

Letting Go Of Victimhood

Art by Maria Chambers

Every one of us going through the ascension process has felt like a victim at many points in our lives, and on some level still carry the victim energy to one degree or another.  Whether it’s feeling the victim of a health issue, heredity, a relationship, an emotion, of the aging process, of the government, or of life in general. Continue reading “Letting Go Of Victimhood”


We live in a very seductive world. We are constantly being seduced. We are being seduced into drama, we are being seduced into worry, fear, and victimhood on a regular basis.

Those of us who made the choice for embodied enlightenment are no exception to that. If we are not being seduced by the outside we are being seduced by the thoughts of our mind. There is a prevailing belief that we are limited beings. That we have only so much time, so much money, so much health, so much love. As we are letting go, as ascending beings, of the old patterns and old beliefs and limitations, there is an escalating struggle with the mind. After all, the mind tells us, what would life be like without drama? Without struggle? Without worry and concern and fear? That is the way the mind controls and assists us or so it believes.

That belief is reflected in our literature, TV shows and movies. If there is not some sort of drama, don’t we lose interest pretty quickly? There needs to be some sort of challenge and then some sort of resolution, and that satisfies our mind…and understandably. The mind loves challenges and it loves solving things. Unfortunately though, as far as providing joy and creating enlightenment for us, it does not have a clue.

So it is very easy to get seduced into the ramblings of our mind, even though that mind of ours is not equipped to really understand how to create for us. And that leaves us in a place where we feel quite out of control. Many of us are just beginning to trust our soul and to trust that our soul is what brings us joy and fulfillment. Our soul wants to work with us and wants us to trust it enough to allow it to create for us what our heart desires. We are beginning to feel on a more tangible level that kind of love and devotion. And as this happens, our mind will try even harder to seduce us with its fears.  But it takes moving out of our comfort zone of responding to our mind and all its emotions. It requires us to move into our soul zone.

Meanwhile, Our mind, while it does appreciate the break, is also not quite trusting enough yet to allow this new relationship to bloom fully. So in the meanwhile it will still try to seduce us back into reacting to the worry, concern, and fear. Our mind is a bottomless well of questions without answers.  But we are beginning to get wise to that dynamic. While we allow and acknowledge all of the feelings that come up, we are beginning to shift away from them more quickly and into what do we want to feel.  And our standards are raising in terms of what we want to feel.


We have been raising our standards in terms of what jobs we will take, what relationships we will become involved in, and now we are raising our standards in terms of what we choose to feel no matter what’s happening within us or around us. And that’s because we are beginning to see how potent our feelings are in terms of creating our reality. In fact they are becoming even more potent in this new energy.

So we are becoming less seduced by those feelings of hopelessness, and worry or whatever else may be coming up. Of course there’s a lot for the mind to feel fearful of because it believes it’s being replaced or worse!  And it’s biggest fear is it can’t protect us.   And it is OK to allow the mind to have its feelings. But now its questions and concerns need to become more background and we need to shift into our soul and its feelings of joy need to become the foreground of our life.

Just as you can’t afford to allow yourself to be seduced by mass consciousness, or a relationship that isn’t right for you or a job or any situation outside yourself that compromises your joy, you can’t afford to allow yourself to be seduced by the emotions of your mind. As you begin to love yourself more, naturally things will come up to be cleared, whether it is physical or emotional. But your mind sees those as negative and reacts to them with fear and concern. It does not understand that you are going through a recalibration and that things will come up that need to be released. But now you can’t afford to respond to those feelings as if they are your truth, because then they become your truth. This does not mean pushing those feelings away or suppressing them. It means allowing them to be there, even to feel them, whether it is sadness or anger, whether it’s fear, doubt, grief or hopelessness.  Even boredom, that feeling of being so disconnected from it all.  But to also know that those emotions are not you. They are not yours. That will take some practice. Most people suppress their feelings because they are so afraid of being consumed by them. But we on the Ascension path are adept at working with both dark and light energies. We understand that the dark emotions had their source from the light originally, so they are to be loved as much as the light.

The emotions sometimes feel like unruly children who we just can’t seem to control. But if you look at it as the mind trying to seduce you, then you could separate yourself a little easier from those emotions. You may have had an experience with someone, an adult or a child, who tried to manipulate you emotionally, with either tears or anger. You may have found yourself giving in initially.  But then you saw that they were playing a game with you and, once you became wise to that, they did not have the same power over you anymore. In fact, over time, they stopped being so manipulative with you because they saw that it didn’t really work very well.

The same is true for your mind. After a while it will recognize that you’re not responding to it. It will also recognize that you are not rejecting it either. You still love it and you still want it to come with you into the new energy.   And ultimately your mind and your human personality and all its aspects will be very relieved that they no longer are responsible for your life!
