Although everyone is talking about Ascension, it strikes me that what we all need to do before we can ascend, is transcend the people we have been. This may sound strange, but unless we face ourselves with honesty and work on overcoming our fears, egos and programming, we cannot ascend at all. It’s not just about us personally of course, humanity as a whole has to transcend the greed, selfishness, violence and aggression that have ruled us for so long, and that’s not to mention the ego. As we cannot control the whole of humanity however, we need to start with ourselves.
I personally don’t subscribe to the New Age idea that ET’s will come down in their spaceships to rescue us and take us away from Earth, nor do I believe that Jesus will come back to rescue us. I don’t subscribe to any kind of rescue scenario, because the only ones who will be able to change things are US – WE are the only ones who can undo what WE have done to ourselves, eachother and the Earth. The whole rescue idea is just another way of refusing to take responsibility for our own lives and giving away our power, something which those who would control us would be all too happy about. Well, I’ve had to work long and hard to find my power, and I’m not about to give it away again.
Taking responsibility for their own lives is something many people have a lot of problems with, which is why I believe so many people prefer to follow others rather than think for themselves. Following what others say is of course easier and when things go wrong, you can always blame those you followed for messing things up. But why would anyone want to put their life in someone else’s hands at the risk that it might be messed up? Do they not value their lives, or is it a symptom of the apathy that has had a hold on humanity for so long? Even though we have all been programmed to follow since we were small, we can overcome – transcend – this programming and regain our personal sovereignty and power.
In order to find our own power, it speaks for itself that we need to start searching inside, as we won’t find it outside of ourselves. It takes time to find our power, and it won’t be as easy to find as you may think, as it is hidden behind many barriers that need to be broken through, which show themselves in the form of fears, ego and experiences that have controlled our lives up until now, as well as society’s programming, which we have all been subjected to since childhood. It is a gradual process of self-empowerment, which makes us aware of who we really are – by clearing out and overcoming the fears and debris we have collected all through our lives. Eventually, this process leads us to the realisation that we are SO much more than we were always led to believe, when we connect with our own divinity – that facet of us that is part of Spirit/God. We are eternal and infinitely powerful Beings of Light.
Even though I realise that many of my regular readers are well aware of this, I also know that there are many people out there who are just waking up to the fact that they want to change their lives and empower themselves, but who may not know where to look or how to begin this process of change. It is with those people in mind that I posted ‘The Search for Self’ a few days ago, and this article is also written for them.
