Monthly Meditation Message: Moving from self-punishment into self-love
Good morning! Breathe and close your eyes, and find that still, quiet place within you. Let your body be supported, and allow yourself to have a healing during today’s message!
This month of May of 2013 presents us with powerful opportunities to embrace new levels of consciousness, and increase our ability to offer ourselves to each other and the planet as the true, limitless beings of love and light that we are. The frequency shifts are presented to us in many ways, such as the three eclipses of this month and the May 1st celebration of Saint Germain’s Ascension Day. Also this month, is the special presence of Mother Mary, in unison with the Feminine Aspect of our Mother God. Mother Mary is receiving each of us into the Temple of Immaculate Heart every night on the astral plane this month to help heal our wounds and facilitate our ability to forgive ourselves for pain and suffering we may have caused, consciously or unconsciously, in any of our lifetimes! So, now you know why sleep has perhaps been a little different for you lately!
You can read about these phenomena on the internet, so I will not go into them. This particular data is from the website of Patricia Diane Cota-Robles. Just get her name from me after the service if you want to check out her site.
What we will do during this message is release energies that limit our ability to have this transformation from carbon-based beings into Light Beings! If there is one thought pattern to eliminate because it has absolutely no redeeming value, it is self-punishment. So much of our inability to move forward and evolve is due to our inability release the past and forgive ourselves.
Shame is the product of self-punishment. Sitting in shame keeps you from having all of your energy, passion and desire for life that you are capable of in the present moment. It lowers your vibration, and makes it hard to move forward!
You can’t simultaneously create the best life you have to offer and be punishing yourself for not being good enough. That is conflict, and it wastes much of our precious energy.
We punish ourselves because we believe mistakes are real and because it creates an excuse to not grow and change. It becomes a familiar, predictable place to respond from. We punish ourselves for thoughts, actions and feelings that we can learn to simply observe, forgive and then release! It’s an energetic catch-and-release program! The key to healing is is self-honesty. You must sit and find the silence within you and be willing to see and hear the thoughts that perpetuate the conflict. It doesn’t work to cover them over, ignore them, or think that if you do enough good things they will go away.
Witnessing them with your love is the solvent that heals them. It’s a process of acknowledging that which doesn’t serve you for you best and highest good, and inviting it to be in union with God. In the transparent, loving world of Spirit, there is nothing to hide, there is no conflict. If nothing is spiritual and all is spiritual, all is just to be observed, and released.
You are a being of limitless Oneness that has a finite, physical body. In that body you are are still connected to the Oneness of all, and that includes that which you would call positive or negative. In truth, you really can’t even really discern if the negative, self-punishing thoughts are really your own, or floating around and you just happen to embrace them into your consciousness because it fits into your story. So as you practice, you realize it’s useless to identity them as “mine”. Why not be honest and see them as part of the illusion, and then let them go?
It’s easy to notice and release self-punishment if you choose to. It just takes time and you have to do it! You can read books, take classes, go to great readers and healers, but in the end we heal ourselves.
At the end of each day, close your eyes and meditate. Notice what you are holding against yourself, whether from the day or from further in your past. Is there something you said, did or thought that you would like to forgive? Can you observe it and let it go? This is what “Being in present time” is really about.
If you said the “wrong thing,” fix it with the person involved if you need to, but release self-punishment about it and move on. If you ate the “wrong thing,” notice the judgment, and eat differently next time. If you haven’t turned your home into a Martha Stewart enclave, love yourself anyway and enjoy life. We punish ourselves for being sick or injured, for taking time for ourselves, for buying into the illusion of letting someone down, for not liking everyone the way we think we should, for wanting to hoard our sweet potato fries and eat them all ourself. This is what confession was originally created for, to lay out all secrets and shameful thoughts to God, so all is in the light. Instead, confession became a way to keep people in shame and punishment. They are easier to control. In truth, when we lay before Divinity the aspects that we hold against ourselves, all we will hear from God is, “Beloved child, you are forgiven already.” (From Way of Mastery)
Take a deep breath, and have a moment of self-honesty with yourself right now. In this meditative space, notice that you,the being, are the observer. You witness from the truth of you, that of love, compassion and neutrality, the part of you that knows, “Beloved child, you are forgiven already.” Notice what you are ready to release, be curious as a child. See even the worst! Let these energies go into the bubble and pop it or release down you grounding cord. Your ego can’t fixate on that which you refuse to acknowledge as a problem!
Here are some thoughts that we may be holding on to and using to punish ourselves. Allow the energies of any you have had similar to these flow into the bubble in front of you to be released. “Wow, I hated that friend for letting me down when I needed them. I cursed that person who cut me off in traffic. I could have gotten that work done sooner but I went to a movie instead. I had some sexual fantasies about another person, even when I was married! I could have murdered my father when he said that to me. I hate this world where people still kill and children starve. I am pissed at God for still letting bad things happen. I purposely withdrew my love from someone over and over to try and get what I wanted from them. I hate myself for not being nicer, eating better, being better with money, smiling all the time, reacting from fear over and over and over. Take a deep breath. Release, and release again. “Beloved child, you are forgiven already.” You may have some remorse about these things, but it’s a waste of time to continue feeling shameful or punishing towards yourself. Practice detachment and be a loving observer of your self. Now, imagine a big, gold sun over your head and fill it with your own amazing energy. Let it fill you in. Breathe three, slow deep breaths, counting to five on each inhale. Validate your body.
Notice if you thought that you have never had those kind of thoughts, and then be amused! Everyone has them, because as long as your are in a body you will notice thoughts that are unlike Love. Remember, we are All One, and you are equipped to pick up every thought out there. But you also have the ability to let them go so they no longer have power over you. You have the power to choose what you focus on.
Punishment is not existent in Spirit. It’s a creation of a small portion of the mind that ends up having way too much power over us. You can release the energy of punishing thoughts that want to try and hold you hostage any time by giving them a color and then imagining them in an energetic brick and dropping them down your grounding cord. Or release them into a bubble in front of you and pop it.
Then, simply note, “I am not that punishing thought. I am of Divinity. I am not that judgmental thought, I am Love. I am not these worries and frustrations. I am a being of Eternal Light.”
The combinations of what you will come up with are endless, and it’s fun to be spiritually creative and come up with new ones for each instance! You can do this in your meditation space, or while in line at the grocery store, while driving, with a friend or watching the news. Whether it’s a punishing thought towards yourself or towards someone else, it’s NOT who you are. You are limitless Love. The thought is the result of where you still make the mistake of forgetting the truth of who you are!
The need to punish originates from lies in your space, where you feel you are somehow deficient or not okay. Punishing thoughts come from comparisons and competition. They are the result of us deciding we do not measure up.
Comparison and competition, like punishment are also the creation of the mind. There is no comparing or competition in Spirit. All is One, and Oneness cannot compete because there is no “other.” In these bodies, however, we forget over and over that we are all One.
We see someone who we perceive as being better than ourselves, or different from ourselves, and the judgments and punishing thoughts can take off. Again, meditate, and let them go! Know that whatever you think another person has that you don’t have, is an illusion. We are all One, yet all unique.
If you can stop thinking that you need to be like anyone else, then you are on the path of having your special version of you and what you have to offer. Then, instead of punishing yourself for not being enough, you can admire where others’ are and thus bless your ability to create the most amazing version of you! Your vision and creativity are what are needed. Not how you need to be like someone else! Beloved child, you are forgiven already.
There are plenty of fear-based entities, with and without bodies that would love for you to continue to punish yourself. Just know that your choice to not play that game counteracts hundreds of people who aren’t able to do it yet. The Masters need you to actively meditate and participate in this transformation, by inviting Love and Light of Divinity into our hearts to blaze with this awareness, daily, in the most ordinary of moments. It is a delightful dichotomy to entertain! Bless every moment of your life, because it serves these purposes: to awaken from the illusion, and to be a voice and conduit for love.
Along with the amazing healing of Mother Mary and Divine Feminine this month, we are also receiving an extra influx of light from Saint Germain. He works with us through the Violet Flame of a Thousand Suns that burns within us. Imagine this flame igniting within you and reaching all of humanity as we conclude this message with the following Saint Germain invocation. Now that we released a bunch of self punishment off of our chests, and have a gathering of premier healers in this room, let’s use this opportunity to acknowledge our I AM presence. The violet flame will respond in perfect alignment with each of our own Divine Plans and for the highest good for all concerned. This Invocation can be found on Patricia’s website. Just breathe and be the conduit for this amazing energy:
And We Begin…
I AM my I AM Presence and I AM One with the I AM Presence of ALL Humanity.
I AM the Open Door for the New 5th-Dimensional frequencies of the Crystalline Solar Violet Flame which are more powerful than any human miscreation.
I AM inbreathing this Crystalline Solar Violet Flame into my Heart Flame, and I AM breathing this Sacred Fire out through my Heart Flame to bless all Life on Earth.
As I breathe the Violet Flame into the physical plane of Earth through my Heart Flame, Saint Germain and the Legions of Light associated with the Violet Flame expand and expand this Gift from my Father-Mother God until it is pulsating withthe power and might of a thousand Suns.
I now decree that this exquisite Violet Flame instantaneously transmutes the human miscreations affecting every person, place, condition, or thing on Earth, whether these painful experiences were created consciously or unconsciously, in the past or present, through obvious choice or through karmic liability.
I decree that the Violet Flame transmutes every electron of precious Life energy that is in any way blocking or preventing the manifestation of the patterns of perfection for the New Earth.
Now, through the Heart Flames of ALL Humanity, Saint Germain and the Legions of Light who are associated with the Violet Flame begin to blaze, and blaze, and blaze the Violet Flame with the intensity and power of a thousand Suns through Humanity’s human miscreations as I decree:
Beloved Legions of Light associated with the 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Violet Flame…
a) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through the thoughts, words, actions and feelings of every man, woman, and child evolving on Earth until every person individually acknowledges and accepts the Oneness of ALL Life, and every expression is a Loving benediction.
b) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through all of the incoming babies, the children, their parents and guardians until ALL youth are raised up in energy, vibration, and consciousness to carry out the directives of their I AM Presence.
c) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through all youth centers and activities; all schools, colleges and universities; all leaders, teachers, instructors and professors in every line of endeavor until the Flame of God Illumination and Enlightenment is manifest and eternally sustained.
d) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through all religious and spiritual teachings, until Divine Love, Truth, Tolerance, and Universal Sisterhood and Brotherhood is tangibly manifest, and a Renaissance of Divine Love is the Order of the New Day on Planet Earth.
e) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through all doctors, nurses, healers, hospitals, insurance companies, pharmaceutical conglomerates, and every institution associated with healing of any kind until Divine Mercy, Genuine Caring, Compassion, and Healing are manifest realities for every person.
f) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through all banking and financial institutions, all economic systems, all money, and all of the people associated with monetary interactions of any kind until every person on Earth is openly demonstrating true integrity, honesty, generosity, fairness, abundance, financial freedom, and the God supply of all good things.
g) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through all places of incarceration and all employed there, through every correctional institution and every judge, jury and court of law until Divine Justice is manifest and eternally sustained.
h) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through all space activities throughout the world until every nation unites in cooperative service, so that God’s Will may be manifest with our sisters and brothers throughout the Universe.
i) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through the physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies of Humanity until all disease and human miscreation, its cause and core, is dissolved and transmuted into purity, vibrant health, and physical perfection.
j) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns through the food and water industries and through all of the food and water used for human consumption until every particle of food and every molecule of water is filled with Light. Empower this Elemental substance to raise the vibratory action of Humanity’s physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies until physical perfection becomes a sustained manifest reality for every Human Being.
k) Blaze the Light of a thousand Suns in, through, and around every remaining electron of precious Life energy associated with the Nature Kingdom, the Animal Kingdom, the Elemental Kingdom, and the Environment of Earth until ALL are purified and the perfection of the 5th-Dimensional New Earth is manifest.
I accept and know that this activity of the Violet Flame has been secured through every person’s Heart Flame by his or her I AM Presence. This Sacred Fire will increase daily and hourly with every breath I take until this Earth and ALL her Life are manifesting the perfection of the New Earth. And so it is.
