LIFE BEGINS BEYOND MY COMFORT ZONE

As I was reading a recent astrological report from Lorna Bevan  this phrase jumped out at me: “Life begins beyond my comfort zone.” I can relate. Looking back at my own life, I can see that such times “beyond my comfort zone” have been the times of greatest growth. The trick is to recognize this while immersed in new and probably fearful and painful territory.

The comfort zone represents complacency. I LOVE my comfort zone! It’s cozy, predictable, won’t push my buttons or push me beyond my perceived limits. It’s a great place for a rest. It’s also eventually boring. Why are we here? To feel comfortable? Or to experience life as a human in its fullest possibility, as a part of and representative of Source? I’m sure it’s the latter.

I’m not talking about drama, here. We create drama when we want to avoid dealing with something outside the zone. Drama drags us back into the zone, and is another form of it—a distraction from discovering and facing truth. To many, pain and suffering represent the comfort zone, because they are familiar and “predictable.” We can avoid self-searching and self-knowledge, we can avoid taking responsibility for ourselves, by immersing ourselves in drama and victimhood.

I remember John Armitage once telling a story about when he started teaching Shamballa as Master Germain wanted him to, helping people move beyond Reiki. Those who felt challenged by his teachings, who were afraid of losing comfortable doctrines and ways of doing things that they held dear, or perhaps just losing their livelihood, protested. Some sent hate mail. As he was driving to teach somewhere in Europe, he was remonstrating to Kuthumi (John often has conversations with multidimensional Masters on his road trips). “Why should I continue with this project? Look at how these people are reacting!” etc. etc. Kuthumi came back with, “My friend, you are not here to become the world’s most popular person.” John says that got him back on track. Yes, he was outside his comfort zone. John usually is. He’s learned to live there, and that is the mark of mastery.

One of my favorite quotes is from Neal Donald Walsh’s Conversations With God:

The reason that the true master does not complain is that the true master is not suffering, but simply experiencing a set of circumstances that you would call insufferable.

I’ve got that one up on my bathroom mirror, staring me in the face every morning as I wash the sleep out of my eyes and the dream-webs out of my brain. There are many times in my life that I have found myself muttering, “I’m merely experiencing! I’m merely experiencing! I’m merely experiencing!” Such as the time my car died at a stoplight in the middle of a 4-lane highway (it turned out a tow truck had pulled up right behind me. THANKS, universe!). Or when my house burned down—and two years later my temporary house as well. Or last week when the water froze and the chimney got stopped up, all during minus 20 degree weather. That time I was shouting “What the bleep am I supposed to be learning here!” Not my finest moment.

Once we can get over ourselves and laugh during such experiences “outside our comfort zones” we are on the way to mastery, to living a joyful life, to experiencing life on earth as a true human and a spiritual being having a human experience.

So, pat yourself on the back when you remember to be thankful for those times that life pushed you outside the comfort zone. Laugh at yourself when you remember times that perhaps you went beyond merely experiencing, and those around you learned a few new words. You’re human! But not ONLY human. And human is a pretty cool thing to be.

In love & light, Phyllis

MULTIDIMENSIONAL DISEASE

John Armitage/Hari Das Baba:

Disease is a multi-dimensional manifestation of something. Where disease is concerned, there’s no hard and fast rule about how the disease manifests into the physical, or into the mental faculties attached to the physical.

Disease has many trigger points, many different types of triggers. On the third dimensional level, it could have to be with defective nutrition, with total denial of who you are, etc., and you actually want to get out of it. Parkinson’s is a bit like that. Usually there you find people who don’t want to be here; they’re not totally present, they’ve never enjoyed themselves here. They may be arch controllers, but in the end they discover that none of this works, and they’re afraid to kill themselves, so they manifest “I’m not here.” The lights are on, but nobody’s home. But a lot of abnormal behavior is caused by multiple occupancy of the body. Once you learn to communicate on an I Am Presence level, it becomes simple. You just ask the I Am Presence of the person what’s going on, and listen to the answer.

There are so many different things happening in our world, and in other dimensional realities. I’ve been facilitating healing since I was a small boy, and I’d always known that disease manifests first in the emotional, in the astral bodies, and then works its way down to the physical. That’s where the doctors fall short in their treatments; they don’t treat the cause, only the symptoms.

But I never realized, as well, that there’s multi-dimensional disease, that disease can be manifest in many dimensional realities. It could be manifest in the eighth dimension, or the seventh, and then it falls down eventually into the third/fourth. We have a body that equates to each dimension. We are actually experiencing in a body in every dimensional reality, up to twelve—some even higher now. So you can have disease in other dimensional realities that actually also starts to manifest here, in the physical. So it’s not quite as simple to explain as our human conscious minds would like it to be. But when you work with guidance, it becomes dead simple. There’s nothing too much to work out.

One of the problems we have with our ego-driven conscious mind is that it wants to know the ins and outs of everything, to put everything into a box or pigeonhole. That’s impossible. Creation is complex. It’s not that it’s incomprehensible, it’s that everything affects everything in creation. The only way we can get to the bottom of it all is to work with our guidance. Your 3D ego mind can’t comprehend, in many ways, or easily, how you even work with your guidance. The information often that you’re given in guidance, your conscious mind says, “What?!” Just get out of the way, so we can do the job. Just allow rather than control. Humans think they have to control everything. No, you have to allow everything, not control.

QUICK START GUIDE TO LIFE

What’s life? I once did ask.

My I AM said, “It is no task,

only if you just allow,

and don’t keep saying, ‘Holy cow!’

Just be the one you are, in love,

ground the love from above,

be alive on earth right now,

for this moment, it is what you allow.”

Love all serve all,

Baba

STANDING IN YOUR POWER–Part 2

Spokesperson of The Federation of Free Worlds, through John Armitage:

You know yourself as the human race. You are familiar with the types of bodies through which you can experience upon the planet. Originally differences were created by heat and cold, but in fact you are not the first humans that were created upon this planet. Where are those humans now? They don’t exist upon the planet anymore, because they destroyed themselves. But the spirits that inhabited their bodies, or shall we say to make it easier to understand, the souls that inhabited their bodies, now inhabit your bodies. You can see that even if you destroy yourselves, or destroy your bodies, you don’t destroy your true self.
From the perspective of Mother/Father God, free will was given to this planet along with other planets within your solar system, and through this free will you already made other planets uninhabitable in the way that you understand habitation: Mars and Venus just to speak of two. Through the action of the beings that were also humanoid beings on those planets, it is now impossible to live there in this type of body, for the ecosystem and the atmosphere have been destroyed. And if the ecosystem is destroyed, these biological forms, or physical bodies, cannot exist without water and oxygen. There is no breathable atmosphere. We would remind you that even your investigating scientists at this moment say that they think they have found frozen water on the planet Mars. They already are starting to think that there must have been an atmosphere similar to the atmosphere of Earth there. In their naivety in the past they always said that life would not exist in a place like that. Of course, in the circumstances they see now it would not exist, but in the past it was.
You have the free will to destroy yourself or live in your own power. This is the choice of every individual, and the things that you see happening around you upon the planet are a representation of what happens in your hearts and your conscious minds. These struggles, the need and the hunger for material power, the feelings of need of having power over others and to control others in their actions, these are the reflections of the consciousness of many, the outward manifestation of their inner realities. It is very easy to change the world. Change what happens in your hearts and in your minds, and the world will change with you. This is the choice, and it is yours to take; for every human being, it is the choice to make.
For we, Mother/Father God and the creator gods, have all the time that we need. We have all the time we need because time is an illusion. We are not governed by time. Only humans govern themselves by time. We can wait as long as it takes, but our choice is that you listen to our words and stand in your own power, be steady in your hearts and minds, and you move forward very quickly. Cease the inner struggle, allow the perfection to manifest through you, and the next level of your experience on this planet will start to manifest very quickly.

LOVE AND love

Recently I made a comment to a friend, “Love is the ultimate healer.” She said, “Don’t make absolute statements. That’s not my experience. Love isn’t always healing.” At first I was surprised, but then I realized that she was talking about romantic love. I was talking about Love without conditions. The first CAN and sometimes does help to open a person’s heart to experience the latter, but not necessarily.

The word love has come to mean romantic love in our society, and this kind of love is most often very conditional: “I’ll give so much love to you if you give so much back to me. If you don’t love me back, I feel rejected and worthless at my core, and I may take this out on you—and the rest of the world!”

This is the opposite of healing Love. Love without conditions says, “I love you just as you are, without judgment, and you don’t have to give me anything back. You don’t even have to know or like me.” It holds a mirror up to the other person, saying, “Look how beautiful you are! This is how I see you! This is who you are!” Love without conditions is not an emotion, it is a state of being. In this state of being all healing happens, for imbalances, whether in physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual bodies, are ULTIMATELY the result of not loving our Self, of feeling less than, unworthy, bad, unlovable.

In my experience (especially with doing Soul Wisdom energy clearings), pretty much everyone on earth who is not an avatar in disguise (and possibly some of them as well) has these feelings buried deep in the psyche. Some spiritual teachers say that this comes from the first separation from Creator/Source/God-Goddess-All-That-Is. When Source sent out sparks of Itself which became us, we became aware of being individual, which felt separate from Oneness. We are never separate, but it could feel like this, and some further interpreted it as rejection.

Those beings who would control us, in order to feed off of our fear energy, built on this small uncertainty within our subconscious in many ways. One of the most potent was through religion. Most of the world’s religions have a core of Love—Love without conditions. However this core has been subsumed under layers of man-made dictums, influenced by the aforesaid beings, telling us that we are sinners, we are not enough, we are dirt, we need to be “saved” or we will go to a fiery hell, or a freezing hell, or whatever. Some even tell us that there is nothing we can do to change our fate—only a few will be “saved” through the grace of the God they describe, and anything we do cannot influence this. It is foreordained. This is a lot to handle, especially when you are fed it at a very young and impressionable age.

These beings also denigrated the feminine wherever possible. This split humanity. We all contain both feminine and masculine energies within, in varying proportions. Both must be in balance within us in order for us to understand who and what we truly are—divine beings of Light having a human experience, learning to hold spirit within the physical at a high vibrational rate. This is called ascension. These beings do not want us to ascend; they fear the loss of their sustenance—feeding off the fear and other non-Love emotions of human beings.
