Messages from Heaven #21
We come to you today with two thoughts we wish to share with you. They both can be put under the category of self responsibility but it does not matter what category you put them in.
First, is the level of hatred and vitriol in the world. We do not endorse this for anyone no matter how good their motives might be. Your current President is a lightening rod for much of this. He often speaks in ways that trigger people’s emotions and sparks reactions in people. And when people react, (he does this often just for the reaction and to take the attention from one thing to another), they are acting no better than the President. They fall into a trap of behaving poorly themselves and become even more culpable than he is. Do you see what happens? “A” says something that sparks a reaction in “B” and “B” responds in a negative way by judging and criticizing what “A” has said (or done). This raises the ante as “B” escalates the situation with derision, hatred, judgement and shrill tones.
We do not mean that you shouldn’t react to something that offends your sense of civility but do not fall into the trap of being uncivil yourself. That takes away or negates your efforts to make things different or to change things. You see, by reacting out of anger, hate, judgement, or fear, you make things worse. Rather respond in a calm manner, stating the facts (not the emotionality) and creating another response. Something such as saying, the way you talk about people is not civil and we could hear you better if you didn’t speak such language. This is far better than shouting back, criticizing, hurling your own epithets.
Do you understand? You see nothing can change if you respond in kind to people who offend you. Turning it around and offending them serves no purpose. To effect change you must rise above it all and come from a place of love, compassion, kindness and non-judgement.
You must change the energy in order to change the world.
You cannot create something new from the old energy. Many who have preceeded you have spoken of this: “Change your thoughts and you change your world” was said by Norman Vincent Peale. “The world can only change from within.”, Eckhart Tolle. “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” Mahatma Gandhi.
You see, they and others have understood what it takes to change the world. You do not do it from the energy of hate, frustration, judgement, or anger.
You must change your attitude in order to create a shift in the consciousness of the world. This is your challenge and what is being asked of you during these times. Love is the answer to almost all of your questions.
Secondly, is the issue of control. You are currently experiencing what it is like to be very controlled. The question is, how to respond.
When people are afraid, they often respond by trying to control. There are several things happening on your planet right now that are causing people to respond to threats of all kinds from fear. There is so much that people are feeling they cannot control so they try harder. From shutdowns, to angry responses to withdrawing, to anxious responses and quick backbiting comments to other inappropriate responses, humans are getting more and more hyper in their ways of responding to outside control.
We call this situation a fear frenzy on your planet. Yes, there is a virus world wide. From our vantage point we see there has been an overreaction to it but that has been driven from a place of fear in order to control others. There is a group of beings who seek power through manipulation of the public through fear. They are experts at this as fear is easy to incite and an excellent way to manipulate in order to get what one wants.
If you do not mind having your life controlled, then this message is not for you. But if you prefer freedom, and a life lived from strength and Truth, then read on.
It is time for you to release your fear on all levels for this is what is keeping you imprisoned, caged, locked up and locked out of living. It is your fear that is locking you down. To release your fear is to free you from the dictates of others. We are not suggesting mass insurrection, no. We are suggesting that you approach life with Trust in the Divine who supports the values of The Light. When enough of you come to your senses and reclaim your center, things will then shift. When you stop believing in fear based “facts” and “stories”, you will reclaim your power.
The Master Buddha once said, “Fear does not prevent death. It prevents life.” Fear is an emotion and like all emotions it is neither good nor bad. Emotions are gifts to humanity to inform, to guide, to teach but when a human holds onto an emotion for too long, the emotion becomes toxic and hurtful to the one who is holding on to it.
Our suggestion is for each human to evaluate which emotion is no longer serving him/her and to release it. Easier said than done, we realize this. There are many ways in which to deal with toxic emotions and beyond the scope of this message. It is up to each individual to find her/his own way to release a toxic emotion, in this case we are talking specifically about fear for we see fear distorting reality and imprisoning humans in a cage of their own making.
Beloveds, we speak to you from a place of love. We might appear at times to be harsh. We are here to assist you in the unfoldment of your own consciousness and ultimately that of the planet itself. We give you information, and suggestions, that we believe will help you in this task. As always, take what resonates for you and use it. And leave the rest. If something does not ring true for you, then it is not part of your Truth. That is your reality. And all is well. But if these messages speak to you at any level, we send them to you with our love in hopes they will assist you in uplifting both your spirit and your soul.
Blessings to you always. May the Light fill, surround and protect you. We send our love.
