How do you know you are standing at a threshold of evolution?...Spiritual/Soul evolution? A strong pull to "level up" in one's Soul path. It happens so rarely, most don't understand the signs that show themselves to grab your attention to this process. We as humans, tend to make up stories of denial even when the signs are harsh and in our face. Even the pure hearted Truth Seeker will tend to resist what they truly desire to experience and understand - this is me, was me.
Why is this? Keep reading for just a facet of this answer...
We're going to talk SURRENDER & SACRIFICE - 2 words that will have many running already. I know this, because I've been the runner, and depending on future circumstance, I may run from this evolutionary process again. Although, I hope not.
Surrender and walking through the initiate doorway - We work our way to this point and freeze, or we trip and fall back down the stairs into the space we've just come from. Sometimes we just stand at the threshold and wait, seemingly forever, to see what might happen. That door? - we can dance around it, turn our back to it, pretend we are ready to elevate our inner being to a higher frequency; and yet, until we choose to release the "matter" we have collected through aeons (see my blog on matter, here), our conditioning, the actual suppression of our Soul; we will continue to hear the calling of ascension and live in our frustration of why our world isn't what we want to be experiencing. To pass through to the other side takes the sacrifice of what we need to shed (the false who, the heavy "matter"), to be able to step into who we KNOW we truly are. This equates to the spiritual teachings in every major religion when it speaks to the death and the resurrection. Death/Transmutation from the unseen and learnt bonds, and then Resurrecting into the understanding of our true Sovereign natures.
SURRENDER is one of the most selfless acts we can perform for our Soul journey. Surrender, coupled with Sacrifice, is a technique that's needed for the momentum of our SOUL. It is the ultimate Self Love maneuver. Surrender is Soul food. Most people cringe away from this immediately, even hearing the words trigger deep emotions in many, even repulsion.
Lets talk RESISTANCE then.
Every time we ascend a level, raise our frequency, accept another rung on Jacobs Ladder (so to speak), it is because we've moved forward, which naturally leaves something behind, being the "whatever is required", to be sacrificed. Energy can not vibrate at a higher frequency when heavier matter is attached to it. So how is this comprehended? Why does it seem so difficult and take so long?
Its because of our resistance to release the heavier matter, for many reasons we resist. The energy wants to rise, wants to expand, and yet we keep it all compartmentalized in an orderly fashion to control the natural process/es. We hang onto things, situations, people, habits and behaviors ... even when they are harmful to us, on the mere fact that it's familiar to us. We may fear lost opportunities if we let go, or we fear the work it may take to release a lower vibration, we fear the maintenance needed to hold that new level of ascension. For some, addictions are strong "bindings" to lower frequencies.
Let me tell you a secret , where you find your Soul journey is now? - IT TOOK AN ASCENSION, probably many ascensions, to where you find yourself maintaining your NOW. This isn't unfamiliar work to your Soul - it knows it's way, it has the calling to the direction it longs to be. It knows, YOU know, exactly what goes on down here (earth, 3D realm). What is standing in it's way? - Matter, mind Matter. The stuff that manifests, constantly, from within the frequency we find ourselves now. Remember, you are a creator with the same power to create as the Creative Consciousness. You ARE the consciousness.
Here's what I've learned recently...
I recently allowed myself to step through the initiate doorway to accept a higher frequency. Why not, right? I've been in this vibration till the end, until there was nothing more to learn. I restrained and resisted, many times. Fear, not knowing if I could maintain a higher frequency. Nervous because I don't know what happens at a higher frequency. Fear of releasing patterns I've always known. The cool thing about this experience, is I thought I had to release absolutely EVERYTHING before I could walk through. Not So! I had to release some, yes, absolutely; Releasing the charge in some of my compartmentalized "matter". I was allowed to step over with some residual matter. This was exciting to learn and felt like a grace was given to me because I was finally Willing to sacrifice some, enough, to pass through.
An easy way to identify where we need to evolve next, is to pay attention to what triggers us, in ANY way. The next step in evolution 'can' be as easy as choosing to avoid any and all circumstances that resonate at the frequency which doesn't match our own, this is wisdom. Diffusing the charge with healing, and acceptance of its lesson to us.
Sometimes, often times, it goes much deeper than this. The situation/s that really inhibit the Souls journey, Dark Night of the Soul experiences for example, would qualify as a major shift, and major ascension, up the ladder of Jacob. These experiences are often tied to aeons of human conditioning and pain, the real heavy dark matter that hangs on the Soul and keeps it entrapped on the 3D plane. Trauma of many kinds qualify here as well.
There is no one right or wrong way to ascend, there is, however, one path that allows it. How we all get to that path varies. What is consistent though, once we arrive at the Threshold of ascension, we must sacrifice 'Matter'. How much or how little is between you and your higher power. This is why 'no man knows the hour', as this process and agreement pertains to the direct relationship the Soul has with the Spirit, who has the relationship with the pure consciousness.
I stood at the threshold for a little over a year before I decided, "I have nothing to lose and everything to gain". I'm through the door now, the portal, a new paradigm before me. I've taken the first few steps forward, looking at the open plane before me ... ready to remake myself based on the Soul journey. I don't feel I "walked away" from anything as much as I feel I've "walked into" ... forward, always forward. It's exciting to me now, knowing my last cycle is coming to a close. What lies before me? ... just like my last cycle, I don't know. It's inspiring though, looking out over the plane - fresh and new, untouched, with the full understanding that I now get to create that future.
If there is something here you, the reader, would like a deeper understanding on, contact me and lets start some dialog.
Until next time - Be Well, Stay Well!
