The Thinking I Am

October 15, 2016

A thinker is a creator.

As we awaken to the Christ consciousness, we transition from a mortal thinker who is a mortal creator to a divine thinker who is a divine creator.

In our mortal mind, the five senses entomb our thoughts in false beliefs, creating a shadow-self that prevents the expression of the Divine (true) Self. The five senses deceive the mortal mind into holding onto false beliefs; which create erroneous thoughts. The deceived mind of the shadow-self is incapable of divine thought. This entombed mind abides in darkness with no awareness of the light of its divinity, producing thoughts that create a suffering and death-bound reality.

In my last post, I mentioned how all is energy and how our thoughts and emotions affect this energy which in turn shapes the reality around us. Consequently, our thoughts create a reality that is either an expression of our shadow-self or an expression of the Divine Self. We either hold our reality energetically bound to our false or shadow-self or liberate it to be an expression of the true or Divine Self. We bind or loose energy through our thoughts. Therefore, when we change our thoughts, we alter our reality’s energy and change our reality.

Each one of us is the center of his or her reality. All we know of our reality is what has been created through our consciousness. As we think, so is our reality. Therefore, as our thoughts change so do our circumstances, interactions, expressions, relationships, and so on that define our reality. We begin to see the depth of our creative power and where we once felt uncontrollably subjected to our reality, we learn that we create it through our thoughts.

When thoughts are created by the divine mind (Christ mind), they create a reality we truly desire. If we think we can fulfill our desires by the mortal mind (rather than the Christ mind), we inadvertently rob ourselves of all we truly desire.I Am the way, the truth, and the life. ~ John 14:6

Divine Thoughts

Divine thoughts create substance (creation) reflective of the divine attributes. These ever-expanding divine attributes include: strength, divine power, vitality, divine love, honor, loving kindness, gentleness, transformative grace, humility, tranquility, equanimity, magnanimity, liberty, mindfulness, beauty, abundance, harmony, oneness, honesty, truth, wisdom, eternal-present, gratitude, sovereignty, and joy.

Through the Spirit’s continual guidance and instruction, our thoughts are transformed into divine thoughts by:

  1. Becoming one in our soul (in its seven elements) to the Christ consciousness. Our soul elements shape our thoughts. Thus for our thoughts to be divine, our soul elements must be divine. The Spirit accomplishes this by giving us a deep soul understanding of divinity and leading us through transformative meditation that manifests this oneness in our consciousness.
  2. Letting only the thoughts and feelings that support divine attributes abide in our mind and rejecting all others.
  3. Speaking and thinking only what we want and not what we don’t.
  4. Filling our mind with thoughts that are supportive of divine attributes by focusing on the pure Voice within.
  5. Turning away from any aspect of the world that strengthens the thoughts of the shadow-self so divine thoughts can grow and expand.
  6. Facing every obstacle in our reality created by our shadow-self with Divine Gratitude. Gratitude extracts divine truth from the past and gives life to our present moment by the understanding we gain from it. And the truth gained expands the Christ consciousness within.

As we consciously participate in emptying ourselves, the Christ consciousness expands within us. We awaken to a sovereignty over the plane of the senses, where the soul was held in bondage by the thoughts of the mortal mind. In the Christ-Mind what we perceive through the senses can no longer entomb us. Where once our thoughts created and perpetuated all forms of suffering and death, they now create ever-expanding immortal harmony.

We become a new creation who creates a new creation.

I Am Priceless

October 4, 2016

Years ago the awareness of my inability to truly love reached an all time high, which brought me to one of my all time lows until I realized it birthed the consuming desire to divinely love all always, which is the key to eternal life. Upon the wings of that desire, the instructions of how I could love this way began to flow from the Spirit and into my soul in a perfect orchestration that constructed new thought-forms within my soul consciousness. Ultimately, my soul needed to possess a consummate oneness with the divine consciousness, for only the divine consciousness produces divine love.

Since then, I’ve been in pursuit of the manifestation of this sublime oneness on all levels of consciousness. What I’ve perceived within my soul is the unfoldment of the most beautiful living love story that extends back to Genesis, which almost daily grows more beautiful.

We love our Creator, yet he loves us far more. The Supreme Divine Spirit continually leads us home (into his divine consciousness) until all are home.

My pursuit creates a humbling and enlightened path. It exposes every nook and cranny of my soul to the purest light, which burns away all that hinders divine love’s expression. This desire leads me deep into the planes of divine truth where divine love is revealed and defined. Consequently my inner awareness continually expands in truth and life, creating new thought-forms and birthing the divine consciousness in my conscious awareness.

In the past, I’ve written about how an inherent “lack of value” sits at the root of our self. (Our Core Issue Affecting All Else). Possessing this characteristic prohibits divine love because to manifest divine love is to act out of an infinite value for all, including yourself. Possessing infinite value is the result of giving and receiving divine love.

Infinite value is created by ever-expanding growth (life), which comes from the energetic vibrations of divine love flowing through us. Lack of value is created by the lack of growth (death); which also is doing the same thing over and over. If something is dead it produces no true growth, thus no true value. If something is continually growing then it produces ever-expanding or infinite value.

The Divine Self (manifestation of the Christ consciousness) is life. It continually gives and receives divine love. This love is the essence of its being, and what makes it grow and eternally alive. Therefore, inherent to the Divine Self is infinite value. Our shadow-self is unreal (dead). Its able only to imitate what it believes divine love to be – it can do no other.

Our shadow-self is formed out of the illusionary perception that we are separated from divine love. This forms a core belief that we are unworthy, rejected, unlovable, or somehow less than perfect. It is a state of consciousness we pass through, like a dream, in order to shape our conscious understanding of divine love. Therefore, inherent to the shadow-self is a lack of value and its corresponding lack of life (death). So, infinite value is an inherent quality of the Divine Self and a lack of value is an inherent quality of our shadow-selves.

Everything that our Creator does is purposeful and perfect and of infinite value. Though our shadow-self doesn’t create infinite value, its purpose is infinitely valuable. It allows our soul to learn the many characteristics of divine love that are revealed to our consciousness through our perceived imperfections.

When we are bound to the shadow-self in our mind, we are unable to manifest divine love, thus we experience an inherent lack of value. We can desire divine love, and learn about this love from the Spirit, but as long as we are unconsciously cloaked in the garments of our shadow-self we can’t manifest it. Therefore, it is only when we become conscious of the Divine Self that we can manifest divine love and possess infinite value.

Once our soul is prepared for this transformation (by obtaining the necessary thought-forms to manifest the divine consciousness), then our mind begins a monumental shift from serving the shadow-self to serving the Divine Self; which I’ve been talking about in my previous posts. The mind gains a new master, the Christ consciousness and the self-directed consciousness is dissolved. When this transmutation is complete, then infinite value and divine love are experienced and expressed through the soul, mind and body. The I Am is out-manifested on the plane of the senses bringing the divine consciousness to all realms of consciousness, thus into Creation.

Though I’ve struggled with my inability to love as I desire, it is what motivates me to pursue what my soul knows is true but what my flesh eyes don’t yet perceive. As each contrary thought is brought into my awareness and cast aside for the divine thought (our conscious part in our metamorphosis), an eternal light fills my eyes. This internal light awakens my soul to who I Am and that I Am an expression of the divine consciousness. It’s an awakening to what has always been (“the kingdom is at hand“). In the light, I Am divine love. I can be no other, for this divine love is all that truly exists. I perceive the Divine Self in all of creation. And in this light, the shadow-self and all the personalities and struggles it manifested fade as a dream in the morning light.

My contentment resides in the truth that my expanding awareness into the divine is our Creator’s workmanship in me, which end was accomplished at his first thought of it. His process of enlightening my mind is perfect. And as infinite value surmounts my thoughts, all of creation is lifted up in divine love.

There is only one Consciousness, one Mind, one Divine Self of which we are all a part. When this truth is our truth, this singleness of Mind is out-manifested into our mind, body and all that we perceive. These new garments cloak us in boundless joy; the reflection of our Creator’s out-manifested form.

Manifesting Divine Energy – Rachel @ Living Light – Stirring The Deep

Manifesting Divine Energy

All my being (body, mind and soul) is yoked by divine energy that vibrates from the eternal Source of life within. It’s the vibration of vitality, regeneration, love, and eternal life.  

~ Awakened Divine Self

All is energy. Matter is the illusion. When we awaken to this higher plane of understanding, our understanding expands expotentially.

Energy’s vibrations are shaped by our state of consciousness. Our shadow-self (directed by a self-directed consciousness) exudes a low frequency energy that eventually breaks down (i.e., death) because of its disharmonious thought-forms. The Divine Self (directed by the divine consciousness) exudes divine energy that eternally expands (i.e., life) because of its harmonious thought-forms. This latter energy frequency is formed by theunhindered and unceasing divine love flowing between the Creator and the soul (in a giving and receiving relationship), and the soul and Creation (again in a giving and receiving relationship). These aren’t just ethereal thoughts I’m sharing, but the very genesis of eternal life. 

Various soul conditions manifest this divine energy within our mind, body and soul. Below I share four significant ones.

1. The soul’s singular desire to seek the “the Kingdom of Heaven”.

When the soul desires above all else to seek the reign of the divine consciousness in all of its being (“to seek the kingdom of heaven” and the Lord and Mastery of the Christ consciousness in the soul, mind and body), then the soul is awakened into a state of oneness. In this desire, the soul willingly lets go of all other contrary pursuits for this high calling so that the sublime oneness it possesses in the spiritual plane may manifest upon the plane of the senses. Through this union, divine energy manifests in the soul, mind and body which bring these three into life (immortality).

2. The soul singularly follows the Master Teacher within.

When the soul exalts the Master Teacher within (the Christ consciousness) as its foremost teacher then it is able to learn and grow in all the ways necessary to prepare its soul, mind and body for the expression of the Divine Self. The inner Teacher utilizes everything in the soul’s reality to instruct and teach, thus the soul is a student of all in humility and mindfulness. If the soul exalts anything or anyone outside of itself above this inner Teacher, it stifles the soul’s ability to gain and develop the necessary thought-forms required to express the Divine Self and manifest this higher energy of eternal life.

3. The soul’s release of the shadow-self.

The purpose of the shadow-self is to create an understanding of divine love; which is accomplished by the soul learning from all of the shadow-self’s “imperfections”. Once the purpose of the shadow-self is finished (signified by the soul’s consuming desire for divine love to motivate every desire, thought and action), then the shadow-self and its self-directed consciousness are consumed by the rising light of the Divine Self (divine consciousness) within. The shadow-self fades as the Divine Self finds expression in the mind and body through the portal of the prepared soul.

Because this transmutation occurs within the soul’s consciousness, the soul intimately experiences every gyration and “earthquake” of this letting go and renewal process. The soul enters a place of “non-being” (i.e., selflessness, emptiness) as all it once knew is stripped away and it awaits its new garments of divinity. It encounters the battle between the self-directed will and the divine will as one reign is usurped by another. It witnesses the victories of the sovereign Spirit as it makes its home in the soul.

During this metamorphosis, the lower frequency energy of the shadow-self is transmuted into the higher frequency of the Divine Self. This higher energy within the soul, mind and body brings forth immortality into all the soul’s being and expression (resurrection). Divine love can only be expressed by the Divine Self. Thus, as the Divine Self finds expression through the soul, mind and body so does divine love find expression in Creation. In its expression, divine energy flows into Creation.

4. The soul resurrects into the Divine Consciousness (Christ consciousness).

The soul engages the Christ consciousness through diligent meditation, prayer, and heeding the Spirit’s instruction until the divine consciousness becomes the soul’s permanent resident. As this higher consciousness lifts the soul, it lifts all of creation with it, for what is done in divine love is done for all.

 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” John 12:32

Once the soul awakens to this higher consciousness, the soul becomes filled with divine energy that flows into its mind and body, yoking the three in unity. The soul then ceases to function by the self-directed consciousness (which is bound to the plane of the senses), and instead operates from this higher dimension that is sovereign over the senses. Thus all of Creation is lifted into one harmonious whole with the Creator.

Divine love comes through the Divine Self. Its energy is the vibration that creates life (immortality) and awakens the soul from its dream and into the glorious eternal present of the eternal presence.

The Annointing – Rachel @ Living Light – Stirring The Deep

The Anointing

Anointing = the possession of the subconsciousness by the divine consciousness (Christ consciousness). 

Our anointing is the inner work of our Creator. He is pouring himself into and through us, and into creation in order to manifest himself. Our anointing follows the preparatory work of our soul that creates a deep awareness of the nature of divine love that in turn creates an all-consuming desire to give this love to all always. This desire is authenticated within our soul by situations in which we previously withdrew our love but now we desire to be an outlet of divine love.

The anointing at this deep creative level of our being is experienced on the conscious level as stages of movement into a higher consciousness. We advance through these levels by A) receiving their instruction from the Spirit within, B) desiring to follow the instruction with all our being (desire creates an open door for the Spirit of God to work freely in us), and C) our circumstances providing a means to integrate the instructions into our consciousness.

Conscious Examples of the Anointing:

We become aware that every occurrence in our life serves the purpose of manifesting divine love by presenting us opportunities to give this love. Thus where we perceive a lack of divine love, we consciously exude it.

We exalt ALL in equanimity and as do we lift all into this higher consciousness and exalt the Creator who is all in all.

We experience the methodical dissolution of the shadow self (become self-less) and all it has manifested (i.e., personalities, past and future imaginations, current reality, purposes, desires, expectations, limitations, etc.) as it is supplanted by the one Divine Self, which was hidden beneath our lower self. We desire to manifest the Divine Self and no longer a contrived separate self.

We cease to perceive life in separation and begin to see oneness in all things. Thus, we no longer consider our Creator as separate from us (or anything else), but an integral part of us as there is only one Divine consciousness that fills all in all.

We perceive that the creative power moves from within us out; thus all transformation and regeneration comes through our soul, which when self-less is an open door to the divine consciousness.

We perceive that through our connection to the divine consciousness we have access to all knowledge and wisdom. These flow into our awareness through the mechanisms of remembrance and intuition.

We constantly experience alternations in our thoughts as our mind now serves the Christ consciousness and no longer the self-directed consciousness of the lower self.  Thus, our decisions and actions are altered by it.

We creatively rise above the limitations of time and space into the realm of the eternal present.

These and many others are transitions we experience on a consciousness level during our sacred anointing of the Spirit. As this eternal presence expands in our soul, we are delivered into the kingdom of the Christ consciousness and we become living expressions of divine truth and love.

Because the transition is happening in our consciousness (which is a creative mechanism), as we shift from one created reality to another we are constantly experiencing the sensational exchange from the land of illusions to the kingdom of the Christ consciousness. Thus we go through the mental gyrations of letting go of one and engaging of the other, which create struggles or battles in our mind and soul. Our lower self “fights” against this transition. During the initial manifestation of the divine consciousness, we are surrounded by the residual creation of the lower self. As we are changing inwardly in our awareness, these outward manifestations counter what we are experiencing inwardly, thus a battle is felt within our soul between what is within and what we perceive without.

To facilitate our transition, the Spirit instructs us to focus on the transformative nature of divine love and not on the world of senses. As we do, the creations of the lower self subside and the manifestations of the Divine Self find creative space to take form. During this transition, we are called to greater times of A) meditation, B) prayer in which the desires of our Creator are made manifest through his consciousness in us, C) reflective thought that opens up our conscious understanding to facilitate our transformation, and D) listening to the Spirit for instruction and counsel which guide us into the manifestation of the divine consciousness.

Though we experience these disruptions, the work is the Creator’s, for we are his perfect workmanship from beginning to end. However, as we’ve experienced the challenges of transformation, we also will experience the ever-expanding glories of eternal growth, and the latter far outweighs the former.

Divine gratitude (gratitude for the divine truth as known through the lens of divine love) is a significant tool in this transformation. Because this is the work of consciousness, what we focus on expands. When we are sincerely grateful for the elements of divinity that we perceive in truth and spirit, then those elements expand and become manifest in our reality; as the outer is a reflection of the inner. When this creative act is consistently done it facilitates the manifestation of the divine consciousness into our expressed reality.

This anointing is the manifestation of our soul as an eternal outlet to the Spirit of God. It creates an ever-expanding beauty, abundance, harmony, sublime oneness, divine love and joy that touches every part of creation from within us. It is the freedom and victory in all things for us and for all.
