Intimacy and Transparency

Transparency 2The Divine Mother at the Union and Reunion Gathering at Lake Tahoe challenged us to take up the task of creating intimacy in the world. Intimacy is essential for sacred partnership. Without it, we exist in two solitudes.

Intimacy consists of personal transparency in sharing plus dedicated and active reception in listening. Today I’d like to look at transparency.

Let me give you an example of what is not intimate in communication. I was in a relationship once with a woman who would get tired at a party, say nothing, and then shame me later because she “had to” be at the party for an hour longer than she wanted and I didn’t notice that she wanted to leave.

When I asked her why she didn’t say anything about the matter, she’d respond that I should “just know” where she was at and implied that I was insensitive in not being able to read her mind.

Archangel Michael once called this position “passive aggressive,” less visible than active aggressive. (1)

I’d say that the whole science of communication is based on the premise that it’s potentially or actually unworkable to assume that another person should just know where we’re at.

The Growth Movement is about taking personal responsibility for our condition and well-being, communicating what we want and hearing what other people want.

A very desirable place to end up is communicating in such a way that we become, as far as is prudent in a world still marred by corrupt public officials, etc., transparent.

You’ve heard it said that telling the truth eliminates the need to remember, right? It certainly eliminates the need to keep one’s story straight. It also eliminates the need to polish one’s image, to manipulate others, to strategize, plot, plan, and so on.

You’ve also heard it said: what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. Deception takes work at every step; transparency takes no work. It’s economical of energy.

We simply say what’s there for us right here and right now.

In the world we’re headed for, we’ll be able to see everything about another person through several means: (1) we’ll be able to read their auras and (2) we’ll be able to hear or see their thoughts. In the Fifth-Dimensional world and higher, “thoughts are things.”

Remember what the Arcturians told the members of Sue Lie’s Multidimensional Leaders workshop? What we call “imagination” in the Third Dimension they call “creative thought” in the Fifth. (2) What we think there appears.

So why not get a head start on the way of life that’s coming down the pike and be transparently truthful?

I can tell you that practicing transparency increases the amount of bliss you feel in your life. Practicing opacity – being guarded, playing it safe, dissimulating, being excessively and inappropriately diplomatic, etc. – ties us up in knots, with all the disbenefits that arise from that.

The more tension we place in our bodies by lying or hiding and creating muscular holding patterns (what Eckhart Tolle calls “the pain body”), (3) the lower our awareness goes. The lower our awareness goes, the more bestial, lethargic and vulgar we become (Hindus call this state thamasic).

Awareness is an attribute of God, along with love, bliss, joy, and sentient existence. The more we hide and make things up, the deeper into the illusion we go.

Transparency is the answer to hiding, dissimulating, lowering our awareness, etc. Practising transparency in a thorough-going manner leads to squeaky-clean integrity and is a wonderful state. It’s also our native state in the Fifth Dimension.

Hey, how easy is it to say “I perpetrated against you” or “I gossiped about you” or “I cursed you to my parents”? It can be very tough but once over we experience such relief. est Trainer Randy McNamara once said that “it takes an instant to tell the truth and it’s like cutting yourself off at the knees.” (4)

There can be terrific momentary pain when acknowledging the truth and the action can seem counter-intuitive. But then one is free of the penalties and baggage of hiding and lying.

Back in 1981, Randy followed that comment with this one: “The real power comes when you call yourself on yourself.” (5) In the Growth Movement, it was one thing to allow others to call you on your numbers. But it was a whole other plateau to call yourself.

If people were willing to call themselves first, rather than waiting to be called, they became truly independent of the external moral apparatus and a totally-responsible person.

Psychologist John Enright described what happens when we raise our rackets, acts, and numbers to awareness, in a manner that’s very close to Randy’s observation: “Unawareness leads to momentary relief and continuing pain; awareness leads to momentary pain and continuing relief.” (6)

Transparency means to let others know us deeply, truly as we are. (7) It means to stand “etherically naked,” as Archangel Michael said. (8) Plotinus described the work of freeing oneself from the stone of one’s self-image, constructed self, machinations, strategies, etc.:

“Do as does the sculptor of a statue that is to be beautified: he cuts away here, he smooths it there, he makes this line lighter, this other one purer, until he disengages beautiful lineaments in the marble. Do you this, too. Cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is overcast, labor to make all one radiance of beauty. Never cease ‘working at the statue’ until there shines out upon you from it the divine sheen of virtue.” (9)

What results from freeing one’s spirit from the block of dissimulation and image management, he described here:

“Have you become like this? Do you see yourself, abiding within yourself, in pure solitude? Does nothing now remain to shatter that interior unity, nor anything cling to your authentic self? Are you entirely that sole true light which is not contained by space, not confined to any circumscribed form, not diffused as something without term, but ever immeasurable as something greater than all measure and something more than all quantity? Do you see yourself in this state? Then you have become vision itself.

“Be of good heart. Remaining here, you have ascended aloft. You need a guide no longer. Strain and see.” (10)

The chipping away at the statue could be called emergence from the constructed self, the image we’ve cultivated that stands in for ourselves, the bands of muscular tension or holding patterns that keep our awareness low, our vasanas, core issues and false grids. Polishing the statue, for me, means becoming transparent in our communication.

There’s much, much more to say about transparency but it’d be best to stop here for today.

Interview with Judith Coates ~ How does it feel to channel Jesus? @ Oakbridge University

 

art  embrace    freydoon rassouli

ART : Embrace ~ by Freydoon Rassouli

Interview with Judith Coates

How does it feel to channel Jesus?

Unbelievably loving. Sometimes I still cannot believe the process that happens where He, Jeshua ben Joseph, Jesus, borrows “my” body and speaks in a very dynamic flow of energy, while “I” am very much present and yet am the beholder. Because I am present, I know that at any moment I could just stop talking, and yet, the feeling is so loving and the messages so practical and meaningful, that it becomes a “choiceless choice.”

Were you always religious?

No. I went to church as a child with my parents, and I prayed to Jesus as a “good” little girl would, hoping that He might hear me, but my early adult life was focused more on marriage, raising children, getting a Master’s degree in Information Science (!) and being the wife of a university professor. Later, when I married my present husband, who is a minister, church and religion became more of my life.

How did you become aware of channeling?

I had heard of and had read material by some of the more well-known channelers in the 1980’s, but my personal involvement with channeling began with the arrival of a manuscript. It was the typewritten copy of Jesus and Mastership, the story of Jesus’ life as told by Him through automatic writing, scribed by James Morgan. The discourses had come through in the 1970’s, and Jim and his wife, Audre’, had tried, unsuccessfully, to find a publisher. After Jim passed on in 1978, Audre’ continued to treasure the writings, and in 1989, learning that my husband, Tom, and I were interested in channeled material, she sent the manuscript to us. Tom was at that time minister of a metaphysical church and publishing a monthly newspaper containing channeled information. When we read the manuscript, we knew it had to be made available to people, so we decided we would publish it – even though we knew nothing about publishing!

In preparing Jesus and Mastership for publication, I proofread the pages as they were put in form for the printer. I spent many hours reading and re-reading the words of Jesus, and, as I did so, I felt an increasingly close personal relationship with Him. Now I could hear Him speaking to me through the pages of the book. He was becoming personally alive for me.

Did you think that you might channel, either through automatic writing or by some other way?

No, not at all. However, looking back, I can see how various events worked together to bring about this process. About the same time as we were preparing to publish the Jesus and Mastership book, Tom and I, along with six other colleagues, were led to incorporate Oakbridge University, a metaphysical vision of higher learning, and as part of the University, we established Oakbridge Chapel, which met on Sunday mornings. As the Sunday services evolved, I was asked to give the announcements of upcoming classes and workshops being offered in the University during the week, and after a while I felt led to add a bit of inspiration – an affirmation or an uplifting poem, etc. – at the end of the seemingly dry class information. This format continued for some time; then the words came to “Be amongst the people and share from your heart.” I didn’t know where those words came from, or what they meant exactly, but, okay. I would do the announcements, then leave the lectern and walk down to the first row of seats and share whatever was in my heart – whatever I had read that week that was inspiring, whatever bits of wisdom that had come to me – praying all the while, “God, give me something to say!”

I remember noticing during this time that there was a flow of energy that was palpable, dynamic, while I/we were sharing. And then, at a certain point, it would be like a window shade was descending in front of me (within me?) and the energy changed, and I knew it was time to wrap it up and sit down. What was happening? I didn’t know.

We continued this way for a year and a half. Then, in the spring of 1993, on a Sunday morning, in front of the whole congregation, Jeshua announced that He was speaking, that He desired to tell the Easter story in His own words – and that He had been speaking through me for some time.

Were you surprised at this?

Very. I had known for some time that something different was happening, but when He spoke through me as if I were not there, speaking about me in the third person “she,” and I was consciously there as a beholder, and knowing that at any time I could just stop, I very much questioned what was going on.

What has convinced you that he is who he says he is?

The many healings I have witnessed over the years, both physical and emotional. His energy is so loving and supportive that He allows everyone to accept the healing they need or want. Jeshua, through me, is a very dynamic expression, One Who loves to be “amongst the people.” He is exactly what you would want a Best Friend to be.

Living Portals of Light – The Arcturians and Gaia @ Awakening with Suzanne Lie

Living Portals of Light — The Arcturians and Gaia

Dear Arcturians,

Dear Higher Expression of my SELF, I felt you were telling me something during my meditation. Can you assist me to put your message into words?

Of course Suzille,

We are happy to assist you, for we are YOU. Do you remember your reality as an Arcturian? You have often written as though we are above you in some manner, but we want you to remember that we are WITHIN you. Above and below are third dimensional terms based on space/time.

Our reality is multidimensional and based on the time being NOW and the space being HERE. Therefore, you do not need to go up, down or even in or out. You simple need to BE Aware of your true Multidimensional SELF. When you are aware of your constant connection with “All That Is” you are “HERE and NOW.”

Allow your thoughts to travel within to find your Multidimensional Mind, not above you but within the core of your brain. Allow your emotions to travel within your heart to remember that your emotions are not within your aura, but within your core. When you remember that ALL your thoughts and emotions arise from within your core, you realize that you can only respond to your self.

Your 3D brain puts your thoughts and emotions outside of your core so that they appear as “not you.” Because of this misplacement, our ones wearing earth vessels often feel as though their thoughts and emotions arise as a response to something or someone outside of them. If YOU are the creator of your reality, which indeed you are, how could the tools of your creations (thoughts and emotions) originate from outside of YOU.

Once you take full responsibility for the fact that every thought and emotion that appears to originate from “some one else” is simply a reflection of what is occurring from with in you, you have re-gained Mastery over your energy field. Conversely, as long as you allow your self to “react to” rather than “take ownership of” every thought and emotion you are functioning form your earth vessel rather than from your Multidimensional SELF.

We know what a huge shift in consciousness it requires to take FULL responsibility for every thought and every emotion that is registered by your consciousness. However, once you have remembered that innate knowing, you are well on your return to mastery. We say, “return to mastery,” for all of you are ascended beings who have volunteered to wear an earth vessel to assist Gaia. You may think you have come to assist humanity, which is true.

However, once Gaia ascends beyond Her 3D Matrix, she will be able to offer humanity a reality based completely on light and love. Conversely, the only reason why Gaia has not completed her ascension process is because of humanity. All the other kingdoms of her world, plant, animal, insect, mineral, etc. are cleared and ready for “take off.”

You see humanity’s experiment of separation from the conscious perception of SELF did not go well. Once humanity separated from the conscious connection with their higher expressions of their SELF, many “power over others” beings, mostly the Draconians, slipped into human forms and tainted the experiment.

The experiment of life on a polarized world was to be a training ground to expedite the process of moving through the different expressions of multidimensionality. If one lived in a reality based on the perception that polarities were separate, could they remember that there is always an energy field connecting the polarities?

Once that energy field is common knowledge, you are no longer trapped in the “dark” or far above in the “light.” Instead, the light and the dark are merely states of consciousness that ALL beings experience. And “where” do you feel these experiences? Have you placed them outside of you where you feel safer and where they are NOT you?

Conversely, have you discovered that you are NOT the reactor to your reality but the creator of your reality? If you are the creator of your reality, then your experience of life does not stem from OUTSIDE of your earth vessel. No, if you are the creator of your reality, your experiences must arise from INSIDE of you.

But, which of the myriad versions of even your physical “you” is the source of that inner creation? In other words, which frequency of YOU have you assigned to be the creator of your reality? Did you assign that creation to your 3D, 4D or 5D and beyond expression of SELF?

You are a great multidimensional being who resonates all the way from Source to flow into myriad realities on myriad dimensions. But where is the Source, and where are all these dimensions? Yes, you are beginning to understand us now. They, All In All, are inside of you. YOU are a portal through which the energy fields of multidimensional light and unconditional love flow from Source to Gaia and back again.

Did you ever realize how very important you are? Even when you are standing still, sleeping, driving in traffic, paying your billings, arguing with a loved one, walking in nature, swimming in the ocean, looking up at the sky, YOU are a living portal of light. In fact, every person, place, situation and thing serves as a portal through which the multidimensional light of the ONE can flow in order to experience creation.

Now are you beginning to understand your great importance? Are you able now to realize that your earth vessel is merely a package for the energy field that is YOU? This package was created from the elements of the environment in which you created your body. You have practiced for myriad lives, known to us as missions, on countless frequencies of reality during many timelines to BE a “portal of light.”

You began being a portal on the higher dimensions where there was no resistance. Then, ready or not, Gaia put out here SOS. You came in answer to Gaia’s call during the fall of Atlantis to assist Her from falling off Her axis. Once you entered Earth’s time, you could incarnate in any timeline, even those that appeared to your physical perception to be “before Atlantis.”

When and where did you forget your SELF? In the same manner that one may go back in time to trace their steps in order to find a lost item, we ask you to go back in time to find the NOW in which you forgot your SELF?

You were all born with that memory, but 3D life has a way of forcing you to forget your SELF so that you can survive the rigors of life on a third dimensional planet. First go back into your current incarnation into form to remember what and when you forgot.

You see, our beloved volunteers to assist Gaia, ALL of you came into your current incarnation with the knowing that YOU are a portal of light through which your multidimensional light could flow. ALL of you are multidimensional being who have anchor points all the way up the frequency trail from the physical world to Source.

The fact that you are multidimensional does not make your special, as every human is multidimensional. What makes you so very important is that YOU are remembering that you are a portal. You are becoming aware that you must anchor your portal into the planetary body of Gaia.

YOU are vital to Gaia because you are remembering that your Primary Mission is to open your portal and allow the multidimensional light and unconditional love from Source to flow through your core. As this light and love flows through you, please remember to ground it in the body of Gaia.

If you do not ground this immense energy field it will be too intense for your earth vessel, and you could short-circuit systems that are important for the survival of your physical body. After you have grounded this energy field, it is vital that you open the portals of your chakras to share the light.

Your human vessel is not meant to hold this energy field, but to share it.

If you do not open your chakra portals and share this energy field, you will create a feedback loop within your vessel that will damage it. Remember your vessel is created from the frequency of third/fourth dimensional planet. On the other hand, YOU are created from the Light of Source. This light is not meant to be static, but must infinitely flow within the NOW of the ONE.

It is this “holding in the light” that causes many of humanity illnesses and diseases. Your earth vessel is merely a form of clay and cannot resonate to your true frequency, except for within your core.

Within the core of your spinal cord and brain, your seemingly inactive kundalini/light silently goes about your mission of allowing the multidimensional light and unconditional love:

  • To flow into your pineal gland
  • Through your physical form to be grounded in Gaia
  • And out through your windows of light—your chakras.

If you are receiving this transmission, you have volunteered for this mission. The problem that our wonderful volunteers have faced is the problem of forgetfulness. You see, the third/fourth dimensional brain can only remember energy fields that resonate to the frequencies of the third and fourth dimension.

Furthermore, our volunteers are very busy simply surviving in a reality in which darkness reigns. Within your 3D reality, those who follow the doctrines of “power over others” are often victorious over those who follow the principles of “power within.” This situation began when the Draconians finally lost the Galactic War and many of them migrated to Earth.

Since dinosaurs were amongst the very early inhabitants of Earth, their Draconian descendants saw Earth as “their” planet. Since the power-over-other carnivore, dinosaurs often ruled, they believed that they had the right to rule over your NOW. These Dracs in human clothing have especially dominated your reality during the previous 2,000 years of the Kali Yuga, which recently concluded.

However, your tender, sweet souls suffered greatly during those times, and even now, many of you have forgotten your SELF. Fortunately, more and more of you, our volunteers, are awakening to your SELF every day. Upon your first awakening you are much like an infant who cannot remember that you are a portal of light.

Therefore, we ask all of our awakened ones to:

  • Plug your light portal into the planetary body of Gaia,
  • Connect with the antennae of your Multidimensional SELF,
  • And transmit your light and love out through the portals of your chakras.

Then, we ask that you project your innate multidimensional light and unconditional love out from the chakras of your human vessel and into the chakras of Gaia’s planetary vessel. We suggest that you also share your gift of light and love with Gaia’s earth (planetary body), air (atmosphere), fire (core) and water (oceans, rivers and lakes).

It is through this deep merging of your human chakras and elements with Gaia’s planetary chakras and elements that you provide the deepest and most immediate assistance to Earth. We shall return to share more information about Gaia’s chakra system.

We the Arcturians are grateful for your service, as is Gaia.

In closing, Gaia wishes to share a brief message.

suzanne lie 10.10 b

My dear human portals, I am Gaia.

I wish to tell you that I am infinitely grateful for your service. My “primitive” societies instinctively knew that we, person and planet, were ONE being. However, since the corruption and eventually destruction of Atlantis, many of my humans became detached from my life essence and began to perceive me as a “thing,” “a large rock” on which other things grew and/or lived.

Fortunately, many of my early inhabitants managed to survive and still know me as their Mother. Also, those who lovingly work the land or live off the waters know that I am an alive being with intentions and emotions similar to theirs. Unfortunately, many have tried to conquer others so that they could steal my land and own my waters.

Since they had no love within them, they had no love for their Mother Earth. In their grasp for meaningless power-over others, they destroyed untold members of my biosphere, even reaching up into my fourth dimensional worlds. Once their destructive manner invaded my fourth dimensional realities, the Galactic Federation of Light was given permission to directly assist me.

Before that moment, the Federation could not assist me, as I had foolishly chosen to be a “freewill planet.” I had no idea how destructive that freewill would become. Fortunately, humanity is my only inhabitants who “spoil their nest” and damage the very planet that allows them the experience of being a third-dimensional human.

Now, that the Galactics and Celestials are answering my call by making the great sacrifice of wearing a human vessel, I see that there is hope for my survival. My planetary body has faced possible destruction more time than humanity knows. You, the humans who were meant to be my protector, have also been invaded by the darkness.

My beloved humans, I can NOW lovingly tell you that the long, dark night is transmuting into the dawn of a new planetary “day.”

Dear volunteers, who answered my call, thank you, thank you, thank you!

I AM the grateful Mother of the earth vessel you are wearing,

Gaia
