old contract / old self / old you

old karmic contract; main contract; original contract;
previous self in this lifetime; the person that you have been in this lifetime up to now;

< New Earth 13 > There came a point in time in your life within the past several years when you were asked, or when you came to a decision point, about whether to stay here on Earth or whether to leave. You came to a critical time. Each of you was asked differently, each in your own way, whether you would stay on this Earth or whether you would return Home. Think back for a moment. You may recall this time. For some of you, it occurred in your dream state. For others it occurred while you were driving down the road or while you were reading, or perhaps while you were ill.

< New Earth 13 > The reason why we mention this on this day, dear friends, is that each of you here knew you were coming to the end of your old contract. You had fulfilled what you came to the Earth to do. At that point you could have left. You could have departed the physical body and come back Home. Obviously the ones here (and the ones reading this also) chose to stay! (laughter) In a sense, as we jokingly say, you "re-enlisted" in spiritual service. You "re-upped." You knew that there was additional work to do on this Earth. That is why you are here.

< New Earth 14 > You are no longer bound by karma or contracts. Your contracts have been fulfilled. You are not bound by the past. Your karma is released, dear friends. Many of you are still living in the residue of the old karma. It is time for that to leave. It is time for that to depart. We said earlier that in the first circle that gathers here on this day are all of the past lives of who you have been. They also represent nearly all of your karma. They have been waiting for you and for this incarnation to be released. For indeed as each of those lifetimes passed away and were buried or burned upon the Earth, much of their energy remained in the Earth. Much of that energy of who you were in the past has been held by Gaia. It is now time to release. Oh, your past lives, the ones who stand beside you on this day… they are desiring to return Home. That is why we said earlier that they thank you for the work that you do, for what you are doing is releasing them.

< Creator 1 > During this time period there were many difficult experiences for you and what you would call lessons, although we choose not to use that word. There was much final clearing, for in a sense what you were doing was completing the book of your life, and the book that contained the stories of many, many lifetimes. You have been working on completing those final chapters. And then, my friends, as this was done, you came to a point of feeling perhaps lost, confused, or disempassioned. You had completed your main contract in life, and your main goals in life.

< Creator 1 > As you wrote those final words in the final chapter in the book of your life, we know many of you experienced great sadness and then a feeling of loss, a feeling of lack of purpose. That is because you finished what you came here to do, but there was one caveat in that. You knew if you could finish that book in record time, you could write a new one. That is why you are here now. But that book has no guidelines or margin lines or preset number of pages. You are creating it as you go. That is what you are doing here.

< Creator 3 > The one that comes in today that joins you in the first circle, who sits beside you now waiting for release, ready to return Home, is the very person that you have been in this lifetime up to now. It has been you, the person that was born 30, 40, or 50+ years ago of time. It is the person who you have always identified with as YOU, the person that carries the name that you have upon your driver’s license. (chuckling) This entity comes in today - and you thought it was you sitting in the chair! (audience laughter) Dear friends, you are indeed in a graduate status.

< Creator 3 > You have made so many changes in your life! Now, the person that you have been all these years of your life is ready to go Home. And from that, a new entity, a new personality, a new spirit arises. That is who you are now. You are released from the old contracts, and released from the old karma. You are looking at a new "book of life" now, each of you… a "book of life" that has nothing but empty pages, waiting to be filled with your new creations!

< Creator 3 > Their journey has been long and difficult and trying. They are ready to go Home. Hug this one that is next to you, for they have endured so much. They are the ones - this you that sits next to you - they are the ones who carried out the final chapter of the book of your life, who went through the difficulties and the hardships in the early years, who chose the hardest of the hard paths. They are now ready to go Home. Dear friends, thank this one for having endured so much on behalf of your entire soul!

< Creator 3 > Now, their memories will be with you for a period of time. But their energy is leaving to make way for the new divine Self that is beginning to emerge. As you know, they have been waiting to leave for some time now. You could feel the urgings and the pullings, but they could not go until your own divinity was awakened enough for this new human angel to come forth. They chose this very day with the energy here, even at this very time of the year, to begin their departure. They only ask one thing as they begin to leave. They ask you to honor them, to acknowledge them and to thank them. They ask you to understand that all that was given and all that was experienced was done in love in order to close out the old cycles of life. Honor your Self and love your Self!

< Creator 3 > Hug them for all they have done and for all they have given. You are now ready to move forward, and you are now ready to truly begin to understand your new house. In your new house, dear friends, it was not possible to take along the past. They are only memories. They are only thoughts and experiences. But in your new house, it is time to release, even the old self you considered to be yourself.

< Creator 3 > You wonder now about the changes that you have been going through in your biology. You wonder about the feelings that you have had recently, perhaps thinking that you were losing it in your mind. (chuckling) You wonder about the feelings of disorientation. You wonder why it is that other people do not even see you! You wonder why you appear to be invisible at times! It is because you have been leaving. The old you is beginning to fade, yet to be replaced by the new divine Self.

< Creator 3 > You wonder why sometimes in lines you are ignored, like you don’t exist. You wonder they forget your order at a restaurant! (audience laughter) Dear friends, that is because the old self that you saw in the mirror has been slipping away for some time now to make way, to make ready for the newest incarnation of Self. This new Self is not bound by karma and contract. It is not bound to the past but lives only in the present!

< Creator 3 > There is a gift now that they give to each of you, for all who sit here, for all who read this. You wondered, Cauldre, why we stopped you before you walked out the door (of your house) today? You wondered why we asked you to bring the Sword of Truth, the Excalibur, the only time it has been brought before this group? (The sword was placed on the mantle prior to the meeting.) For the one that sits beside you now passes you the Sword of Truth, the Sword of Empowerment, the sword that has been the source of truth and power for your very being for all these days. It is being passed to you as the one thing you do indeed carry into your new house.

It is the one thing indeed that goes on the wall in the gallery of your new house to remind you of all you have been and all you have done. It is there to honor all of your experiences that have brought you, that have brought this Earth, and that have brought all of creation to this point.

It is simple. It is symbolic. It is now time to accept this, to pass the torch from one being to the other. Usually this occurs between lifetimes when you leave the physical body. The new sword is passed to you before you return to Earth in the next incarnation. But now it is passed to you while you sit here, while you stay in the same body, but a body that will soon undergo many changes! Accept the truth for all that you are and all that you have been.

< Creator 3QA > Indeed it is not that the old self has died. The old self has completed its journey, its contract. The old self has taken a job, so to speak, that it has done very well and worked very hard at. And now it can be released. It can return back to what you would call Home. There is much honor in this. The term ascension is not one that we use so much, for there are many misunderstandings of this that come from your churches and even from your New Age materials. There is the assumption that when you ascend, you will immediately be healed of all things, that you will know all things, and that you can do all things. But in a sense, yes, indeed you are ascending. You are changing. You are now being able to accept your divinity into this reality. But we only caution you about what you assume ascension is. Again we ask you to understand that things will be quite different than what you have thought. They will be powerful and wonderful but we ask you to hold no assumption of what this ascension process is.

< Ascension 7 > You ARE able to hold this divinity in. That was one of the big questions that you and that we had, particularly going into this lifetime of yours. You felt relatively certain that you would be able to overcome the karmic challenges, the final clearings that you set up for yourself. So many of you took on several lifetimes worth of karma in one life. But, you felt confident that you would overcome this in a single lifetime, or half of a single lifetime. But, none of us was so sure how well you would be able to hold the energy of divinity within you as you transitioned into the New Energy.

< Creator 7QA > For all who are touched by these words, your contracts have concluded! There are residual energies that continue to cling on. These are, these are very interesting. These are things that we are studying on this side. When you have moved through a door and you’ve gone to another room, why do the old energies cling like they do? We are finding through you that as you spend more time in what we call your inner room of your new house, the quiet room; and you spend more time allowing these old energies to run their course, there is a smoother transition. We are learning through you that the energy structures of the old habits are not so easy to release. When you struggle with them, rather than love and accept them, when you try to arm wrestle them, when you try to fight them, they become stronger and they tend to hang on longer.

< Creator 5QA > In short, yes. With this new element coming in, there is a new relationship between the white and the black and the clear. These three original elements will consider the fourth element to be an outsider. They will attempt to reject it. You will feel this in your body and mind and emotions. As we have also said at the beginning of our session here, there is an old institution that will be shattered. This is an outer manifestation of the very things that are taking place within your being.

< Creator 10QA > But dear friends, in your original contract was a "what-if clause." That "what-if" clause said that if indeed, you were to move to the next level without these traumatic things happening, then what would you do? And that is why we sit here with you now. That is the very reason we began these very specific lessons and discussions in past. The date of August 19, 1999 was the predicted date of destruction. This was also the time when we began these discussions in the teepee (see Tobias channeling "The Departure of the Guides", August 21, 1999).

We began to work with you on your "what-if" clause. That being if things DID work out, then dear friends, there would be a need on Earth for teachers, those who had done much internal work, much internal processing and transformation. These would be the ones - and you are the ones - who agreed to go into their next lifetime while staying in body.

< Creator 12QA > It is a time for you of releasing right now what you have been going through. You are leaving behind your old human self, the one that you incarnated into, in this body. You are now transitioning into a new type of human, a divine human, a human of the new energy. This process of change is difficult, and it is challenging at the very core. It accounts for the aches and the pains in your body. It accounts for the feelings of climbing one day and falling the next. You are going through the deepest of changes.

< Ascension 1 > It is not about you anymore. The "you" is from the past. The "you" that you knew before was on the karmic wheel. You went from lifetime to lifetime, trying to resolve and balance (past life aspects : karma). It is not you anymore. You have ascended past that. Indeed their old energies will always be close and always be familiar, but it is not you anymore. Do you understand what we mean? It is not about you. You have moved beyond. You are not seeking ascension anymore. You have ascended.

< Ascension 2 > You are about to cross another marker here in the next year or so of your time, and that will be the completion of an energetic tapestry that is being created to enable you to truly hold your divinity (new divinity), to truly access all that you are. This is the work of the Kryon with the grids. You will cross that marker also. You have crossed many, many. But the important one is that you have moved from the old into the new. You have gone from one lifetime to the next. You have ascended. Perhaps it doesn't look like what you thought it would - but then what did you expect? (audience laughter)

< Ascension 2 > Now, hold that flame. Play with it. Enjoy it. Have fun with it. Walk from this room on this day with a new attitude, with an attitude of enjoyment of life. You have reached your goals already. You have fulfilled your contract. Allow yourself to enjoy. When you do, you change the cycles (vibration) of energy. You change the way that the outside world reacts to you. And it will start reacting differently. It will start coming back to you more joyfully. It will come back to you with more fulfillment. The things that come to you will not be so hard and difficult and challenging. You can drop that from your energy makeup right now. You can drop that difficult, challenging setup (old contract) that you brought into this lifetime. You do not need it anymore. It is, above all, for each of you, the time to play, and the time to enjoy. And that is how you will truly take ownership of your divinity.

< Ascension 4 > We started this series by letting you know, dear friends, that you have already ascended. You have already crossed through that vibrational line that separates you from your old human self. You have already moved from one lifetime to the other and stayed in the same physical body. You have already finished the Book of Life of all of your lifetimes. No more karma, no more contract, simply clear and empty space to create in any way you choose. And, we are so tickled at the words that were said at the opening of this gathering, "if you dare, if you dare, you can create anything!" You do not believe that so much yet, but you can create anything - if you dare. Instead of taking one small step, take one very large one. This is perhaps a little frightening at first, but you will see what a difference it makes.

< Ascension 10 > You have gone from one lifetime to the other while staying in the same physical body. Most of you even kept your same name even though you have crossed into a new lifetime. You have maintained much of your previous identity. There is that part of you that does not want to let go, and yet another part that desperately wants to let go. You are seeing the conflict in your own life, the challenges in your own life. There is such a desire in you to hang on, but yet you want to change - an interesting energy drama!

< Ascension 11 > In Lesson One of the Ascension Series we shared with you that you have already ascended. What did you think would happen? What did you expect? And, who did you think would meet you when you ascended? Ascension is moving from one lifetime into the next without changing your physical body. You have gone through one, perhaps two, and for a small number of you, three lifetimes already in these past few years. You have gone through these rapidly.

< DivineHuman 6 > What is happening with cloning on Earth is also something that will be worked on intensely on the New Earth. You see, the principle is simple. You are not your body. You are Spirit. When you choose to leave your old physical body, you can clone yourself. You can go from one lifetime to the next without having to go through the whole traumatic birth process. If you want to stay on this Earth, you do not have to go through the long and rather painful cycle to get back here. You can just hop back into a new body. Dear friends, there are those who misunderstand. You are not cloning Spirit. You are simply cloning biology. There are those who do not understand that life is eternal. You can change your physical body very easily. It is coming.

< NewEnergy 3 > Anyone here, reading this, listening to this - anyone here who thinks that they are a walk-in… think again. Nothing walked into you. The physics of Earth are not set up like that. There have been a few isolated cases where there was intense agreement prior to a soul coming into a body for a lifetime, but these are very limited. You are not a walk-in. You are an ascendee. You moved from one lifetime to the other while still staying in the same body. You transformed your consciousness. And, yes, you may feel totally different. You may feel like a new person because you are, in a way. But there wasn't some outside entity that one day walked into your body.
