< New Earth 13 > As you enter your new house in the future, it may feel a bit awkward. There may be an initial feeling of mistrust. The mistrust is that if you give this a try and it doesn’t work, then you have failed. Indeed this is not so. If you give it a try and it does not work, it only means that you are trying too hard. There should be no effort involved. It should be intent with love. If there is struggling involved as you stand in your new house as a creator… if there is struggle or effort involved, you are not listening to your vibration, to that "hum" you heard when you first walked in. You are only listening to the intellect of the old human.

< New Earth 13QA > There is no best or worst time here. What is most important is where it (the intent) comes from the heart. Now we will digress a little bit here to say that in your new house, friends, there are no longer the 7 (physical) plus 5 (etheric) chakras. There is only ONE chakra. There is only one energy center here, and it is unified. Accessing this one chakra is more important than the time of day or month. Thinking that there was a particular time or particular way of doing something comes from the intellect. That was struggling. When it comes from the purity of the heart and when it comes from the place of unity and Divinity within will make the most difference. This will be perhaps one of the most difficult things to understand in your new house.

< Creator 1 > There are times when you try to create something for yourself. There are times when you try to create or change the outcome of a situation that may affect you or others. It is like you are running straight into a brick wall. You are trying to use an ESP or psychic power. You are trying to push from your brain or perhaps even from your heart. You are struggling energetically with situations, and you find it generally does not work.

< Creator 3QA > You will see things begin to change around you. But you must begin the process with the conscious intent to stand in your divine moment, to stand on the other side of the short wall, and then just be in that moment. It should be no struggle. It should not be difficult. As you consciously intend this and practice this on a regular basis, it will become more natural. It will become easier and easier. This divine moment wants to be part of you. It wants to come forth in your life. It is not like you have to make it happen. You simply have to allow the space for it to happen in.

< Creator 3QA > Your meditations have been, for the most part, struggling and difficult. Indeed they helped you get to this point. We ask you to always honor that part of yourself. But as you move into the new energy, you do not need to sit and meditate daily for a prescribed period of time and fight the thoughts coming through your mind. All you need to do, friends, is to allow and accept all that is. Accept yourself, and live in the divine moment. You will find that you will desire quiet time to be by yourself, but it will be like a river of wisdom and love flowing through you, rather than a structured meditation.

< Creator 5 > In the past, we have asked you to accept things. We have asked you to "allow" rather than to "effort." We were communicating to you on several levels. We were communicating that it was time for polarity to stop its game. We were communicating that it is time for the old balance of 2/3 and 1/3 to cease. We asked you in the past to take breaks, to do "no-thing," to be in a quiet space. For all of this time, the three marbles were learning to allow and accept the fourth marble.

< Creator 12QA > We do not want to define for you what this shift, what this new energy will be like. We do not know. Nobody is there yet. We do know, based on what we see in all of you, that it is creation that happens quickly, but it is of a divine nature. It is not limited to simply creating a grander paycheck, for that will have very little meaning for you. You will find that all things will come to you. You will not have to struggle for them. They will be there.

You will be amazed at how easy it is, and we can tell you now from watching you that there are those who are beginning to experience this. It is so easy that you might have a difficult time accepting it. You might purposely sabotage it to make it difficult. You might feel uncomfortable that there is no struggle, that there is no strain. You might think you are getting something for nothing. In the new energy, as you transition into it, the struggle is gone. The struggle is released.

We will talk more of this in the coming year in our new series. We will talk about it over and over until you are quite tired of it. We will continue to tell you that it is not about you any more. It is not about the old self. Your needs do not need to be fulfilled in the way they were. They will be fulfilled in a new way. You will not have to worry so much about the small details. It will not be about you and how much money you have or how much health you have.

You will transition into a new consciousness where you understand now that you are ones who are in service. You are the ones who are the teachers. And surely all of your needs will come to you appropriately. Understand that it is not Spirit or the angels bringing these to you. It is you creating them. There will be a new balance within, a new vibration within that brings forth all of the appropriate things.

< NewEnergy 6 > New Energy comes in without effort." It is there, waiting for you. You will know… you will definitely know when you are working with New Energy because it does not contain the elements of duality. There are no opposing forces. Opposing forces create the struggle and the conflict. New Energy is without effort. You see… if you dig too deep in trying to find it… if you struggle trying to figure it out… it will elude you. It will be right there in front of you, but it will elude you. It is very simple. And, we wanted to start this Shoud today with that note… no efforting… no efforting. It is all right there. (New Energy is like floating petals of flower in the river. You have to remove barriers to let them come to you and have to behave gracefully to take them.)

< NewEnergy 6 > We are speaking of this efforting in the brain, the struggling back and forth, which wastes so much of your physical energy. Your physical bodies are delicate instruments. And, they do tire out. And, there are things that you are doing as angels in a physical body that do require a physical exertion… although you will be seeing that change also. We are talking here about the efforting that occurs in the mind and even at times into the spirit. So much of your resources are devoted to this efforting in the brain.

< NewEnergy 6 > How do you not effort? Dear Shaumbra, it is to breathe, to breathe. When you breathe, you allow yourself to pause for a moment. The mind cannot be clicking away when you take a deep and conscious breath. When you take that breath, it also allows New Energy to come into your dimension and your reality. You will know it's there because it will have a - how to say - a tingle to it. It will have a grace and a flow to it. It will be so simple. It will be so easy that you will tend to discount it and throw it out because you are used to having answers come the difficult and hard way.

< NewEnergy 9 > There are still vestiges of the Old Energy. It does not happen overnight. This whole process we thought would take many, many lifetimes. But, you have worked through it, and - how to say - in a sense, battled your way through it. And, then you realized that battle should be no more within yourself or outside of yourself. You gave it your full passion. You gave it all of your energy. And, then you've realized it was time to stop fighting yourself, time to stop struggling, to stop the suffering, and to be in this Now moment.

< Master 5 > "Well, what then creates reality?" Well, as I mentioned before, the driving forces are desire, passionjoy and simplicity. These things create … they actually are creating your reality, but you're just not aware of it. These are true motivators or the true dynamics behind creation of your reality. So the false motivators, the false dynamics, where a lot of people get very - well, where you get confused. The ones that aren't working right now are force. So you have these false motivators that, again, come from the mind, not from the true heart. And they are force, they are power, and they are efforting. Efforting.

< Master 5 > Every one of you can recognize this, because you have spent time - or perhaps still - doing this; using force to create reality, using power to maintain your identity to create reality, efforting - that is such a hypnotic overlay and such an old belief system - efforting. These are old ways - very old ways of trying to create reality and it doesn't work very well, because it's mental, because it doesn't have desire, passion and joy; because it doesn't bring thyself back together; because it doesn't allow for true expression and expansion. Those are very, very Old Energy ways of doing things.

< (Next) 8 > Your Body of consciousness, your true consciousness, can bring in energies that you couldn't even fathom right now; bring in anything to do anything; can attract things that will change your lives and change the lives of people around you, if they choose. It is beyond words at this point, so it's difficult to express it in words. But it is beyond words. It is the concept of keahak, which is absolute freedom - freedom to create, freedom to bring in the energies without having to effort anything. Ultimately you don't want to effort anything. You shouldn't be efforting, but some of you are still addicted to efforting. It is the pure consciousness attracting huge quantities of energy.

< (Next) 11 > Consciousness will never own anything, will never manipulate anything, ever. You - you won't. There's this very old thing that has you efforting into your life, that has you pushing that makyo up hill more and more. You don't need to. You really don't. You don't have to discover anything that's hidden in there, because actually there's nothing in there other than consciousness, love, if you would.

< e2012 1> When that nagging doubt comes in, when the brain energy consumption comes in, don't play the game. Just take a deep breath, "It doesn't matter," and move on. Notice the difference in your own energy level, but more importantly, notice the difference in the result that takes place when you stop trying. When you stop trying to figure it out, stop trying to make it happen, stop worrying about it, stop pushing on it. You'll know you're trying if you get this tension up here (head). That's when you take a deep breath and stop trying.

< freedom 7 > What we're doing here is this merabh of letting energies come to you now. You're sitting on the bike, stationary. By the way, this is natural. This is the way things work in the most natural state of being. Having to effort, struggle, work hard, limit yourself – that's unnatural. The natural way is allowing everything to come to you.

< freedom 8 > You're going to bring in energy and it's going to be attracted to the pure state of the I Am consciousness. You're going to find how playful it is, how creative it is, how fulfilling it is. Things like drama, things like struggle, efforting, tension, straining, tiredness, all these become a thing of the past. It won't happen overnight, but it will happen very quickly. And in doing so, you're going to enter into a new world, a new reality for yourself. You're still going to be in the world of the asleep and of the blind so it will be awkward at times. It will be uncomfortable because you're going to be working on different levels. You'll feel that you're no longer in the world or necessarily of it, but that too will come back into balance. You'll assimilate, you'll adapt this new “I Am” Self in the old “I Was” world.

< kharisma 9 > What is the last thing a human does before they come into the realization of their enlightenment? Now, maybe some of you thought there is some great big mystical thing you do. Yeah. You stop trying. You just let it go. I call it allowing. Stop trying. Stop efforting. Stop pushing. Stop trying to figure it out. It's going to happen, so why screw with it? Why interfere with it? It's going to happen.

< kharisma 9 > All of you should be breathing a sigh of relief right now, “Oh god!” No truly. If you do a study of the Ascended Masters, and you look at their path, there's a lot of common things that they did. They all studied a lot. They all disciplined a lot. They all agonized a lot, felt really bad for all … guilty, guilty, guilty. That kind of a weird part of the process, just, “Ohhh! I did all this bad stuff. Please, please forgive me.” Oh! But then they stop trying. They give up. And I bring this back a little bit to the story of Yeshua and you coming here to plant that seed of divinity; then you studying, sequestering yourself in these sacred organizations and then getting sick and tired of it and just walking away disillusioned.

< kharisma 9 > It's almost like that now. You're almost sick and tired of your own path, of what you've been doing, of your spirituality. Oh, even the world doesn't even sound so good anymore. It's like, ughh, ughh! Spirituality is just another excuse for not being human in life, in your self, so you get sick of it and suddenly whether it's done consciously or unconsciously you just stop trying. “I'm so tired of that. That didn't get me anywhere. All these years, whether it was Crimson Circle or any other group, all these years, look at me. I'm a mess. I'm worn out. I'm broke. I have nothing. People don't like me. I smell bad. I give up. I give up. I'm just going to fade into life.” That's actually really good, when you get to that point.

< kharisma 9 > First of all, you're not going to fade into life. You're not just going to go back to being common at all. But what's good about that is you've finally given up. You've finally stopped trying to be spiritual, stopped trying for ascension. The enlightenment is here. I asked you before, why did you wait, assuming you could have just done it a couple of lifetimes ago or earlier in this lifetime. It's already here. All the preparation has been done. All the processing has been done, all the getting yourself ready. It's here. So stop trying. Don't think about it though. You're not going to be able to figure it out, but you can let yourself feel it and realize it and get that “aha.” It's not a bad reason. No, it's not. Not a negative reason or anything. It's a very deep reason. It's a very pure, real reason.

< WalkOn 5 > But you forgot all the time there's a ninety-degree angle that you take that requires no effort. Instead of making it happen, you allow it to. Making happen still is real. So here you use effort and force to make something happen. You think you're moving things along in your life, whether it's studying and getting a degree and getting a job or just cleaning your garage.  You think you're moving something in life. You are denying the very essential fact that everything is moving in spite of you. Everything is already in motion because of your light. So you think you have to effort, force things to happen in your life. You're screwed, because you're using five human senses and effort. There is another way to do it. Not to replace this, not to suddenly ascend in a linear way. You don't do that. It's the “and.” You suddenly realize there is the absolute no effort, no force, no trying.

< Emergence 1 > Can you realize that energy is here to serve you? It's yours. It's your divine right, whether it comes in the form of abundance, whether it comes as peace, whether it comes as wisdom, whether it comes as being at the right place at the right time, whether it comes as other people. No matter what it is, energy is here to serve you. In that, you'll find that certain things just go out of vocabulary. They hold no meaning at all. When energy serves you, there's no need to struggle with abundance. It's just there. When you're allowing energy to serve you, there's no need for healing. It's just there. The balance comes back on its own. When you realize that energy is there to serve you, there's truly no effort. There's no need for goals. There's no need for purposes.
