I am Jeshua, your brother and equal, who has lived as a human being among humans. I am with you, although not physically, but in and through your hearts. You are connected to me as a bearer of the Christ energy.
The Christ energy is one of connection, of being one on a level outside time and space. I am not the individual I was on Earth, that incarnation of Jesus or Jeshua. I am in you, and who you are speaks through me. I speak from a level of unity that lies outside earthly time and space, beyond the physical, the corporeal. Therefore, do not look up to me as a teacher, guru, or guide. I am one of you – in fact, I am one with you.
When I am here and speaking through someone, at the same time I am in you. I feel what you need in this moment to incarnate more deeply, to express your light, your soul flame, your unique divinity, and to establish it on the Earth. Doing that is the only thing that will make you feel fulfilled.
You all have come so far in the development of your consciousness that you no longer care about the worldly images of success, victory, power, or prestige. These images still affect you, although not so much their actual attainment: the success or power so you can become acknowledged or famous. But you sometimes long to participate, to belong, and to feel a connection with the people around you.
However, these images of success and accomplishment in your society profoundly affect you during your childhood and as you grow up. Those are the times in your life when you are very sensitive to belonging or to feeling different. Belonging to a group is so important to people, especially to children, because humans are by nature a social animal. A part of being human is that you want to connect with others, or at least with one other.
But it is when you are in connection with the world and the people around you, or even with one other person, that you receive input that does not really match the impulses from your soul – your natural state – and you get confused. This happens often when you are young: you get misinformation, as it were, that is not consistent with your being, and as a result, you become confused. You want to be a part of the community and to be loved: first by your parents and later by your friends and peers. You want to experience social success, but because of the confusion that occurs within you, you become, to a certain extent, separated from yourself.
You can not continually live outside yourself, without regard for your inner self, because this will eventually lead to an inner split and living a false life, and that is when things begin to go wrong. This inner split is expressed through your emotions: dissatisfaction, uncertainty, fear, doubt about yourself, lack of creativity. Eventually, you become lifeless or even depressed. This split can also manifest at the physical level, because your emotions have a direct influence on your body. The split that arises in you, as you grow up, is experienced by almost everyone and is very painful, because your real purpose for being here is to pay heed to your soul, your unique light. You are here not to adapt, but to shape a new world, so you are almost destined to be different from others and to not be aligned with outside expectations.
I want to ask you to feel, right now, how you are different. Go back in time and realize how, as a young child, you experienced that: “Something is not right – I can’t fit into this – I can’t really go along with the existing standards or ideas of what’s good, exciting, and worthwhile.” Feel your hesitation as a child. See if there are such moments from the past which are now bubbling up within you; times when you looked at the world, at the people around you, and thought: “There’s something wrong; I feel different. Other people seem to know what’s going on and what’s going to happen, but I don’t experience that.” Try to bring as much clarity as you can to this sense that you can not join in with the world around you; the feeling that you are different, but that you do not know how and why.
Yet you are very aware that: “I think and feel differently”. Feel your originality in that knowing. You have been trying, for a long time, to push away this part of yourself because you wanted to connect so badly with other people in order to be loved. Have compassion for this part of yourself that longs to connect, to be seen, and to share your light with others. Have compassion for it, but step out of it, too. And feel how you have suppressed, ignored, and denied what you really are by trying too much to conform.
To help you feel clearer about this suppressed part, which is so original, I ask you to imagine the following. You are on a large empty plain in nature, open and vast – you can see the wide sky above you. You feel the earthly elements, wherever it is: a desert, a beach, a grassy field. There are no people there, no traces of human society. You are there in the wild, and you feel at home there; you feel that you are part of the Earth and nature. Touch the ground with your hands and feel the firmness of the Earth; feel the wind, the plants around you.
Now you see an animal appear, or maybe several. There is an animal out there that belongs to you and wants to come to you. It has come now to stand by you or to lie down beside you, and it is not afraid of you. This animal feels completely at home with your original natural energy, because it is at home in nature. See if you can see or feel this animal and look into its eyes. See the beauty of this animal, so pure and unspoiled. It is not interested in images of success, of conforming, of how it should be, of having to do your best. This animal is very free and independent. It has no sense of social pressure, or of the social boxes or cages in which you lock yourself. See if you can name this animal, a name that feels good to you.
This animal represents your original self, the part of you that does not fit in. Feel the wildness of it and the pride, because an animal has a natural pride and dignity. It does not suffer from all the human concepts, and so it does not drive itself crazy trying to fit into them. Take an everyday situation in your life: a situation at home, at work, or with people where you often feel uncomfortable because you feel pressured, or feel small, or are forced to conform. Imagine that you are in that situation as this animal; that you get into the skin of this animal and look at the situation from its eyes. Do not be afraid of what you will see. An animal is acute in its perception and does not respond to illusions – it looks through things. To change this world – and that is part of your soul task or mission – you need this animal.
Dare to be different! Dare to again recognize your original self and take good care of yourself. Trying to conform, and overly absorbing the images of the world, goes against taking good care of yourself. Taking care of yourself means establshing and guarding your own space, quite naturally and with certainty. It also means leaving if something does not nourish you or inspire you, saying “no” when someone intrudes into your space, protecting yourself in obvious and natural ways. However, doing this is challenging for you, because you are replete with images of how things should be and how things ought to be. Throwing off these images requires of you to make an effort, where for an animal, what they are comes very naturally and does not cost it any effort.
Essentially, doing this is very simple. But the problem is, it is hard for you to do because you are afraid of being criticized or that it is even dangerous to do so. However, that is now not the case, and it is especially so in this day and age, because there is a great need for people who do not conform, who are different and original, and who have something to say from their originality. This opportunity is, in a sense, unique to this time. There have been times when it has been barely possible to raise your voice and be different, and there are still places on Earth where that would be very difficult. But a turning point has been reached; there is movement for a reversal going on. In doing so, the voices of the original, the natural – the soul desires of people – can be more and more seen and heard. There is an urge for originality in humanity, especially in the younger generation.
It is important that adults take the lead to make sure that voice is heard in order to break through the old structures. The guidance of adults is necessary, because many young children are now being sold on these images, structures, and judgments of the past, and they are too sensitive to adjust themselves, even a little. So we need leaders, spiritually mature people, who understand the importance of breaking through all those compulsive images and norms; who dare to show their originality, first of all for themselves, but also to prepare the way for the new generations to come who are bringing in something new. Preparing the way is necessary, because the new can only grow if it enters into a fertile environment.
That is why I am asking you to take yourself seriously, and in a very conscious way, to feel how you are different.Take it from me that this will not break your connection with other people. In this day and age, especially, it is quite possible to be yourself, as it is called. By that I mean to be your original self, from which you overthrow things that have been held sacrosanct. At this time, doing this is not only possible, but is also desperately needed, because a wave of new energy is entering the Earth, and it can only be born through individuals. It will never happen through organizations, through political institutions and hierarchical structures. Something like this can only be born from the bottom up, and that means through large numbers of individuals.
Your individual path is important for you, of course, but through your individual path you simultaneously transfer a spark to the collective consciousness. And all these sparks of all the individuals together bring about something new: a wave of new energy. Embrace the animal within yourself that you just saw – it is a creative key. You can use your imagination to pave the way for your own soul energy.
Thank you so much for your attention. I am with you – you are not alone. There is a field of energy, here and now on Earth, that lifts you up. It is already so strong that you can readily connect with it, and you can tune in to it for your everyday choices.
Thank you so much for who you are.
