Stop Denying the Power of Others

Dear Ones,

Many of you are feeling scattered. You are likely addressing 3D issues you thought you completed – and you are angry that these issues seem to be in your way of future development.

Issues that are so ‘yesterday’ – and you wish to be of today or even tomorrow. Your fear, your angst is that these issues will never allow you to move forward. Before your transition, these issues frightened you. Now they make you angry, “Why me? Why now?”

For the pieces arriving now seem to be as inappropriate for you as would be true if you had graduated from high school, only to learn you must repeat a first-grade reading class before attending college. Most definitely, inappropriate and not conducive to your good humor!

So it is you are learning to look at an old issue with new eyes, new perspectives. How much, if at all, are you willing to sacrifice to readdress an issue you have addressed many times before? And if you are not willing to readdress the issue, how do you clear it completely from your being – never to address again?

That is your piece at the moment. For indeed, that piece, if you will, is the piece that is holding you in a place you never wished to be before and most certainly not now.

So it is we suggest you look at that piece intently to realistically determine if you are able to do anything to shift or change that piece. Most likely, that piece involves other humans or human activities. Do the humans involved wish to change their roles? Do they wish to address their issues from a 5D perspective? If the answer is a resounding, “NO,” which more than likely will be the case, there is nothing you can do for them or that activity. You are in a different place with different perspectives and goals.

Perhaps an easier way of understanding the issue would be the example of your first-grade child having difficulties learning how to count money. You could be frightened along with your child that he or she will never accomplish that skill. Or you could know with every fiber of your being that your child will indeed achieve the goal of money counting before they became much older.

You have an overview of possibilities and certainties you did not have when you first encountered the fear piece you are now readdressing. It will be solved, shifted or negated without your angst or fears. For those issues, even though they might touch your heartstrings are not about you, but instead about the person or persons in question.

You cannot learn lessons for another including taking their pain away. It is something they must do for themselves – just as was true for you. Even though you might reduce their pain in this particular issue by rescuing them in some format – such as telling your child’s teacher that the counting money lesson is too difficult for any child and thereby forcing the removal of that lesson from the curriculum – that lesson will only return for them until they shift it themselves.

There is no longer any rescue possible. For that is a piece of the caretaker/victim stance that you addressed months or even years ago. Trying to remove someone’s pain only returns that pain to them in another format – until they address it themselves.

Many of you experienced the same. Perhaps you were addressing abuse issues. Until you focussed and refused to participate in abusive situations involving you and/or others, the issue popped up in many formats. So it will be for those you stop to rescue. Even if you solve a particular problem for them, their issue of abuse, lack of self-worth, abandonment and on and on continues until they decide to clear it. For it is their issue, not yours. You have more than enough to complete in this lifetime with your issues – and you have done so remarkably well.

You are not helping your children, friends or relatives by trying to clear their issues also. You are merely muddying their clearing phase and perpetuating their need to address the same issue in different venues.

Allow them the strength to find their way – if they wish to do so. You have found yours. It is not your place, nor do you have the energy to be a mother duckling to all humanity or even one other human. You have more than enough to accomplish in this lifetime – and so you are.

But stopping or slowing down to help another find their way when they are not necessarily looking, does not help them, nor does it help you. Doing so is from the 3D perspective that others are more important and valuable than you. Which, of course, is no longer part of your 5D repertoire.

For you know without a doubt where you are going even though you might not have the particulars quite yet. And you are beginning to understand that others are as powerful and capable as you – they merely need to remember that they are. This they cannot do if you are constantly rescuing them to their learning and your forward movement detriment.

It is time for you to let go of your need to rescue or direct others. Such is of 3D. This life is about you rescuing you and glorying in the ability to know that you are able to do so. And that the same is true for any entity who wishes to be part of this wondrous transition. So be it. Amen.

“These are challenging times,” said the Swami Beyondananda, “which call for Emerge-n-See measures".

"I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places."

The average man does not know what to do with his life, yet wants another one which will last forever. --Anatole France, author (1844-1924)

A long and wicked life followed by five minutes of perfect grace gets you into Heaven. An equally long life of decent living and good works followed by one outburst of taking the name of the Lord in vain-- then have a heart attack at that moment and be damned for eternity. Is that the system? --Robert A. Heinlein

According to Dr. Larry Dossey and others who have studied the healing power of prayer, surgery patients who were prayed for tended to heal more quickly. Not only that, but if the people who were doing the praying were also prayed for, results were even better! And it worked regardless of the language or religion they were praying in. Instead of engaging in that childish and destructive game, “My dogma’s better than your dogma,” the major religions would do better to organize a worldwide prayer calm-petition-- it could be called the God Will Games-- and donate the proceeds to ending spiritual hunger on the planet. Regardless of who wins the pray-offs, everyone will benefit.

Hi Brenda, this is so me right now! Definitely taking a swim in the murky 'you must do/give me something in order for me to be complete' pool...
Hmmm - need to try: I am enough just as I am, and: what illusion have I created that I imagine is stopping me from being?

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players" Thank you Bill xx

And thank you Brenda! xxx

Hi Nikos,
I agree that we have given away or taken from others. But if we're transitioning to loving ourselves and others, those lines are now about sharing instead of taking or giving away. And so it is that we're addressing issues perfect for a fear-based world - caretaking or victimization - but don't work very well in a love-based world.
Blessings, and As Always, Lots of Love and Creation Sparkles,

Hi Zorro,
You're bad!!! I've always thought Henny Youngman was funny. Similar to the Three Stooges line, "I can't see, I can't see." "Open your eyes," is the response.

And yes, we're all doing Emerge-n-See measures now to self-love!
Blessings, and As Always, Lots of Love and Creation Sparkles,

Hi Nikos,
You too!!!! I'm ready to go to bed and you two are making me laugh-out-loud!
Blessings, and As Always, Lots of Love and Creation Sparkles,

Spot-on! Exactly what I needed to hear and be reminded of! February has been a roller-coaster ride so far. This article reminds me to reground, release and refocus! Thank You!!

Brenda Hoffman 10th February 2016 2:40 pm

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Zorro!

Brenda Hoffman 10th February 2016 2:43 pm

Hi Debs,
I know. I know. Reading that we're enough as we are and learning to live it is the stage many of us are in. It should be so easy!!!!
Blessings, Lots of Love and Creation Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 10th February 2016 2:45 pm

Hi Debs,
Another laugh-out-loud. Give that husband of yours a hug for adding to our fun.

Brenda, Ben and Mariu,

As the Yogi Swami Beyondananda says, it's all "Duck Soup For The Soul"!

Sit down and watch that one for a laugh (Duck Soup)! Timeless!

Swami also says, “When you find yourself on a vicious cycle, for goodness sakes, stop peddling.”

Brenda Hoffman 10th February 2016 11:42 pm

Just keep them coming Zorro!

Hi Nikos,
A lovely thought, "sharing in our consciousness." Thank you for the concept.
Blessings, Lots of Love and Ongoing Creation Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 14th February 2016 4:57 pm

Hi Nikos,
I think many of us feel as if we're on the 'fault line' but are in reality much further along than we realize. Sharing, caring, learning, exploring and loving together is our 'cup of tea' of this loving Spirit Library community. Thank you for being you.
Blessings, Lots of Love and Ongoing Creation Sparkles,
