< New Earth 13 > Now as we stand at the entrance of your new house, let it be known that there are no limits to the energy quotient of your new house. There are no limits. "The quotient of energy will always be appropriate to the experience at hand." This is one to remember. The energy quotient of your new house will always be equivalent to the experience and the needs that are at hand for you. Do not predetermine how large or how small your new home is.

< Creator 6 > To create in grace. The Oven of Grace is a way of showing that you can take a situation and begin to find resolution. This will be a fun lesson for you to teach. To create in grace is to get your human thinking out of the way. It is to step aside for a moment and simply allow your awakening True Self to begin its process, to begin finding the appropriate resolution. Creating in grace also means to take your agenda out of the situation at hand. Your agenda is limited. It also limits the true extent of creation that can take place. Lesson Four, to create in grace, begins a new type of process. The process does not come from the mind. It comes from within you, to create in a new way.

< Creator 6 > Expect changes and bless them. The changes that you begin experiencing in your life, while frustrating and aggravating, are appropriate. You will see that old things are moved out to make room for new things, grander things. There is a parallel here on what is literally happening within you. The new thing that is moving in is the part of you, the larger part of you, that was left behind at the wall of fire. The things that are moving out of your life right now were based on old human limitations. The limitations of consciousness are being moved out right now to make room for this grander energy.

< Creator 6QA > We have spoken of the four and the marbles. We have spoken of the new balance. This balance occurs as the fourth element comes in. Lesson Six - Within you there is Divine Balance. This is the knowingness, the internal peace and understanding that all things will come into Divine Balance if you allow them to be, if you allow them to be. Within you is all of the capabilities and tools - you need to search no further outside. You simply need to allow this Divine Balance to resolve the issues in your life. It is important here to do this without limitation. When you threw your issues into the air tonight (during the channeling), this was symbolic of having no limitation of releasing.

< Creator 6QA > When you threw your issues into the air, they floated and suspended. In the old Earth energy, they would have dropped to the ground - gravity would have pulled them - but we are telling you emphatically that things are changing. Release the limitations by allowing 'grace' to work on the issues. Know that things will change. Allow the 'cooling off period' and then release the issues as if to the wind. They will transform into gems of light. Then when you feel you are ready, collect and weave these former issues into your necklace of light.

< Creator 7QA > You will move past even the speaking, even the thoughts of the mind. It will come from the One Chakra area. Much of "voicing" out loud is related to the mind. You are being too limited, and there is too much mental activity. Spirit hears you whether words are spoken or not. Sometimes you tend to be so regimented even in the words you say. We know of many of you that re-phrase and re-word your communications to Spirit, thinking perhaps God didn’t hear you correctly. It is not about the words you say. It is about the vibration that emanates from you, that begins in your One Chakra. It is a simple expression. This is what is truly creating your reality.

< Creator 9 > From the time you first came to Earth and took a physical body until the time of now that we sit with you, you have not been able to be a creator in the true sense of the word. You would plan your lifetimes ahead of time with your team, your angels. You would work on certain objectives and lessons. You would develop a spiritual business plan, as it were. Then you would come back to this Earth. You would come back in human body. You would walk through the parameters that you had established for yourself. When you reached one goal, you would move onto the next that had been previously planned. In this mode, dear friends, it was difficult to be a creator in the true sense. In this mode you were one who was experiencing, one who was learning. But it was difficult to be a creator, for there had been parameters that had been determined in advance.

< Creator 9 > Here is the challenge for you, the teachers: can you drop those plans you make each day? Can you go beyond the way you THINK things should be? You have been goal-oriented, and that has served you well to bring you to this place. You have planned things in your human mind, but now it is time to release that. Oh, this will challenge some of you! We refer here to things in your own life. We know that you will still be required to submit these things in your workplace, but in the new energy you will begin to see the fallacy of these old plans. You will begin to see how limiting they actually are in your own life.

< Creator 9QA > The lesson of "dancing with what comes to your front door" will challenge you. While there are some here who think that they will step into this easily, the old tendencies will want to come back; the tendency to want to control what happens, to want to plan what happens, and the tendency to not trust what happens. Dear friends, in your divinity, in your new emerging divinity, you will be a creator in a different sense. This will take a bit of work.

< Creator 9QA > Accepting and allowing is also being in the "now," being in a state of grace, knowing your own divinity. When you create the broad brush stroke, there is no need for intent. You do not have to direct your new and emerging energy to any specific place. This will be the challenge for many of you. You will want to take that brush, and you will want to say, "Give me a relationship. Give me $1000.00. Give me one thing or another." This limits your divine power and its potential. Allowing, accepting, and knowing will become the energy of the day. After you create the broad stroke, after you add your passion to it, dear friends, simply sit back. The appropriate things will come knocking at your door. This will take much trust on your part!

< Creator 9QA > It is difficult to transition from the old energy into the new. You are looking for tools that you used in the old energy to try to move into the new. It is time to put these down, your old thoughts, your old ways. Within this circle, within Shaumbra, we are channeling back to you the new ways that you and others are discovering. These are the methods that work, the methods that are effective. Spend more time in your new house. Create WITHOUT intent. This will challenge you. Create without intent. At the core of you, you know of all the appropriate things, but you are getting in your own way. Intent, in the sense that you use it, does get in the way and limits the potential of creation.

< Ascension 7QA > That is precisely our point! (audience laughter) And, you precisely argue the very purpose of having agenda. And, as long as you want to carry it, we will still love you. We will still honor you. You find it difficult to put it down. And, we understand that. Agenda, you think, gives purpose, because you are still walking in duality, as nearly all humans are. Without agenda, you are NOT without purpose. Without agenda, you are merely free to explore totally new levels of consciousness.

Now, agenda does not mean that when your body says it is hungry that you should not feed it. That is not an agenda. An agenda is a desired outcome. Agenda, for instance, is saying that you must have a certain career path. Or saying you must have a certain desired outcome in your marriage. Or saying you must have desired outcome for the way your children grow up. That is agenda.

In our story of David today, he had an agenda, even about his own daughter who he wished was more beautiful. That was his agenda. It kept him from understanding her true beauty. Do you see what we mean by agenda? It limits what you experience. It limits things.

It will be challenging to release the agenda. You will feel, for a moment, that there is no purpose, or that you have no backbone, that there is no strength. But you will quickly come to see that without agenda you can move beyond duality into new levels of consciousness. And, we know, many more questions will come up about this.

< Creator 11QA > These are core issues. You are done with your other basic issues. You have walked through and processed those. We are now coming to the core issues. The issue of the fear of being Creator. We talked much today of the ego, of the male energy, of the battling energy. These are all fear issues that will come up. In a sense, you would like to be "junior creators", or "sub-creators". You would like to have an energy higher and stronger and above you that places controls or limitations on the extent of your ability to create. Dear friends, it is not meant to be that way! There is not meant to be another who is higher. As we said in our story of Jack, one day Jack will inherit the throne.

< Ascension 6 > The grids also provided a filter or a buffer. You did not have full access to the energy of your divinity all at once. There are many human and spiritual physics laws at play here. But, the grids are like a form of buffering and protection. They also provided limitations on what you would be able to do. They limited you from accessing all of your divinity.

< Ascension 9 > Do not place limitations on how much, or when, or where. Simply put out the vibration that now is the time for these things of humanness, for these things of emotion, for these things of spirit to come into your life. And, they will be brought to you. This is one of the physics of the New Energy. It comes to you.

< Ascension 9QA > As you go to this Void of Ascension, something will come from within you. The solution you seek cannot be credited to another. The solution that you seek, perhaps, is nothing like you thought it would be. That is why we have asked you to release your agendas. By releasing your agendas, you have no preconceived box, limitation, or idea of what the outcome is. Releasing agenda is, in a sense, being in the void, with no expectations of the outcome. The outcome in the New Energy is far grander than it was in duality.

< Ascension 9QA > A void is a nothingness, a pause. It is silence. As you go to this Void of Ascension, something will come from within you. The solution you seek cannot be credited to another. The solution that you seek, perhaps, is nothing like you thought it would be. That is why we have asked you to release your agendas. By releasing your agendas, you have no preconceived box, limitation, or idea of what the outcome is. Releasing agenda is, in a sense, being in the void, with no expectations of the outcome. The outcome in the New Energy is far grander than it was in duality.

< Ascension 10 > The Void of Ascension is a quiet space where you do not wrestle with the duality within yourself. In this Void, you ask all parts of yourself to be in pause for a moment, to be in a place of quiet for a moment. It is where you ask those marbles - the white and the black and the gray - to be still and to feel the birthing of the energy of your divinity (fourth marble). It is where you do not try to figure out things in the limitations of your human mind.

< DivineHuman 1QA > First, it is to know that agenda is only limiting yourself by having a predetermined outcome to the situation. We tell you to release your agenda because, in the agenda, you are in a box. As divine humans, you can create so much more than you ever thought was possible. When you release your agenda, you release your limitations. That is all it is, a releasing of limitations and allowing something new and full to come into your being.

< DivineHuman 2QA > You have learned to release the limitations of your identity to become full and complete. In releasing your old human identity, you begin to accept all of yourself. That is when the pathways are open for you to begin accepting everything that you are, your spirit, all of your experiences that you have ever had… everything. Then, the fear of death leaves. And, now you can live. You can live every moment to the fullest. You can live in every breath that you take. You can live in every moment, no longer worrying about what the future will bring. It will come to you, all of these things.

< DivineHuman 10 > Have no expectations of where you end up once the creative flow starts. That was the way of the Old Energy. Expectations were merely limitations. Allow the creative flow. Start that project that you have been dreaming about. And, when you take the first step, you may not end up where you thought you were going to be. You'll end up in some place far more multi-dimensional, far more fulfilling, and far more creative. Creativity is not limited or defined. It is an expression that will take you to places that you cannot even dream about because they are so grand. It all begins when you begin.

< NewEnergy 8 > The visualization, dear friends… this is when you were told if you wanted something in your life, visualize it. Visualize the big red sports car in your driveway. That was a function of the mind. Once in a great, great, great while it worked. Most of the time it caused you frustrations, caused you to wonder what was wrong with you. The visualization, in a sense, helped you at the time, but the reason we are not suggesting it is that it is limited. Why limit yourself to a red sports car in the driveway when you can have life, when you can have abundance, and love, and all of these other things? Why limit yourself?

< NewEnergy 9 > We can tell you this - the most difficult times are behind you. Indeed, they are. We can see this energetically in you as individuals. We can see it as the energy of Shaumbra. You have walked through the "dark night of the soul" and come out on the other side. You have crossed the Bridge of Swords - which is the release of your karma, release of your Old beliefs, release of your limitations. And, you have come across that Bridge of Swords new and different.

< NewEnergy 9 > What will limit the imagination and your creations? First and foremost - Old belief systems. Belief systems are like a prison cell for the imagination. They limit it. One of the reasons why we took our recent trip to Israel was to let Old beliefs go, to open the doors of this prison cell of Old beliefs. Shaumbra, you have discovered how Old beliefs get you in trouble. You even have beliefs right now that - we have to say - are still limited. You still don't understand the full potential. You still sometimes see yourself as a limited human being because that is the way you have lived, so that is all you can see in front of you. Belief systems are the prison of the imagination.

< Embodiment 1 > You wonder… sometimes you ask us, "What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose of life?" It is simply to live. It is simply to be here. You don't need to have a mission right now. And, as empty as it might seem, you don't need to have a purpose. Purposes, in a sense, are limiting. Without a purpose you can be full. When you are full, you can be a Creator. When you are a Creator, you can do anything you want. You don't have to have a mission or a purpose right now.

< Embodiment 2 > Ohamah has a saying that we chuckle about here on this side. He said he learned to stop thinking and start creating. There is a big difference, you know. Humans tend to think their way out of situations with force again. He learned to stop thinking and to start creating. The thinking slowed him down. The thinking was one of the barriers. Trying to think everything in your heads would be like a rat in a maze, not able to get out.

< Embodiment 6 > This is the "year of freedom." We are going to help free you of the limitations of your body and your mind and the human dimension. We are going to have fun doing it, whether you like it or not. I had to throw that it in. We're going to have fun going beyond, getting out of those prison walls. We are going to have fun expanding. We are going to let those Old Energies be transformed. Now, what holds you back, Shaumbra? What holds you back from being who you really are? Well, first and foremost, it's the past. It's the past. The future can't hold you back because it hasn't been created yet. Only the fear of the future can hold you back. But, the past literally does hold many of you back. You're regretting many of the things you have done in your lifetime.

< Embodiment 6 > We are going to you ask you now to get over it (holdback of the past). Get over it. It was part of who you are. It was an experience you wanted to have to help you learn and understand something. It was a mighty challenge that you had given yourself so that you could learn something new. Some of you get down upon yourselves. Some of you who have drunk a little bit too much… you call yourselves alcoholics. Get over it. You are not an alcoholic. You are one who went to the depths of hell drinking to find out what that is about. But, the energy does not have to be attached to you anymore. That was the past.

< Embodiment 6 > The past holds you back sometimes because you have hidden it away. You have tucked it away… under the rug… in closets… in your subconscious… or whatever you want to call it… parts of you that you have been ashamed about… parts of you that you couldn't deal with up to now. Yes, there are some wildly ridiculous things that you have done in the past. Some of you are so filled with guilt for these things.

< Embodiment 6 > How do you handle that now? How do you solve it? You embody every part of it, everything you've ever done, and then you let it move through. We know you have done tremendous work in this area. But, now we're going to go to the real depths, the real hiding places of some of the Old Energies. You are going to start getting the glimpses and the full stories of your past lives. You can handle it now.

< Embodiment 6 > What else holds you back? Being the victim… wonderful role to play! It is sometimes easier being the victim than the Creator, sometimes easier blaming everything around you. You get caught into the trap of being the victim, the perpetual victim. And, do you know what we do when you do that? We support you in your victimhood. You're having fun with it. So, we're going to support you. We are going to help you experience what it is like to be the biggest victim on Earth because that is what you have been choosing up to now… some of you. But, now it is time to let that go. It is holding you back. You can't blame your parents. You can't blame your past lives. You can't blame anything. You are the Creator.

< Embodiment 6 > You are allowing that (victimhood) to be a hindrance and a block. Why? Because you don't necessarily want to face what it's like to be a Creator. You're sometimes afraid of going back to being a full and conscious Creator. You regret some of the things that were done in the past, especially before you came to Earth. You see… I created this cottage that we are sitting in. I made it real through the imagination. You used to do that also, especially before you ever came to Earth in a human body. When you were creating the stars and the heavens, when you were free out there, without a body, you could create very quickly and imagine very quickly. There were many, many things you didn't like about what you created.

< Embodiment 6 > But, Shaumbra, at your core you are a Creator. There is no need to truly worry about what was done in the past because it has gotten you here. It has gotten you to this point. No matter what you think, you've truly never killed anyone. A soul cannot die. It simply comes back in a new form. You can never truly take another's energy away, even though you have tried. Sooner or later you have to let it out because it's not yours. You have to release it. So, Shaumbra, many of you have been playing victim, and it has held you back. No longer blame anything else… unless that's the way you want to live. Take full responsibility. And, as you do, you will understand how Creator energies truly work.

< Embodiment 6 > What else holds you back? To a degree - mass consciousness. You are here on Earth. You are surrounded by mass consciousness energies, the energies of humanity. Remember quite a while back when we asked you, "Are you ready to leave mass consciousness?" And, all but a few said, "Yes." You have. You have given yourself permission to leave. But, it is still there. It still has a way of influencing you from time to time. But, you don't have to be stuck in it. Especially as Energy Movers, you can allow yourself to move beyond the consciousness. Yes, it will come in, and you will feel it, as so many of you felt the energies of the earthquake long before it happened. You felt that it was a potential that was probably going to be manifested. It was part of mass consciousness preparing for a change, and you felt it. But, it doesn't have to hold you back. It doesn't have to hold you down.

< Embodiment 6 > What else holds you back? Feeling that you are disempowered… many of you… the feeling that you are weak… a feeling that you couldn't perform magic, even if it jumped right into you… the feeling that you can't affect anything, especially outside of you, much less your own life… the feeling that the energies are so strong and so harsh all around you that there is nothing you can do… you can only respond to things, not create things. This a form of victimhood. It is a form of denial of who you are and the powers that you have. You let yourself feel disempowered. You let yourself get swept away by the currents of the river of life… from the river of consciousness… a feeling that all you can do is try to hold on… try to survive… that you can't affect anything.

< Embodiment 6 > In this year of 2005, it is time for your freedom from those things. It is time for you to understand that you are no longer bound by them. You can change them. You could also give us all of the reasons on Earth and in the heavens why it can't be done. And, then we have to support you in that. We have to continue helping you feel disempowered, continue helping you feel like the victim, continue helping you have no abundance. That's the one we don't like at all because that is what you are choosing. That is what you are drawing to you.

< Embodiment 6 > One of the things that holds you back is your resistance to use your imagination, your lack of imagination. You actually have a very potent imagination, don't you? You've been shutting it down for a long, long time. As a child you were scolded for your imagination. We remember… we were there with you. You have been trained not to use it. You have been trained to use the mind only. One of the things that causes depression, by the way, is not using your imagination. For those of you who have been experiencing depression and anxiety and lack of passion, it is because you have put your imagination on the back burner. You have hidden it. You have suppressed it. No wonder you get depressed!

< Embodiment 6 > The foundation for the new you is the essence, the soul, the divinity of who you are. It is not just the story of you in this lifetime right now of what you would call "the ego." It is the collective of all you have ever been and all of the potential of who you are going to be and your divineness and your purity. It is a story. It is the foundation rather of everything that you have been. Don't try to build it on just the story of this identity in this lifetime. Sometimes your stories are what are holding you back. You try so hard to hang onto them. You try to build on them. But, it is not about building on this one story. It is about building through the imagination in a whole New way.

< Embodiment 6 > And, I don't want to hear any of you say right now, "But, Tobias, I don't know how to feel," because then you are locked into that. Say, "Tobias, I allow myself to feel once again. I give myself the freedom to feel even things that aren't of the human realms. I give myself permission to feel everything of the other dimensions. I give myself permission to once again talk to the angels." So many of you… we hear you say, "Oh, but I can't channel; I can't talk to the angels." It is the most natural thing you'll ever do. It's easier to talk to the angels than it is to other humans. Don't trap yourself by saying, "I don't know how to feel." Say, "I'm ready to feel once again." Don't trap yourself by your own limitations.

< Embodiment 6 > Anything that is holding you back, any prisons that you are in, are of your own making absolutely. And, you can free yourself, not for yourself through force, not for yourself through some type of willpower mental exercise. You free yourself simply by opening up, giving yourself permission. It is time to evolve the identity, to evolve YOUR identity. That means letting go of the story, a story that is you in this lifetime. It has served you up to now. But, it's had its limitations. It is time to evolve the identity to become more of who you truly are.

< Embodiment 6 > It is the time to give yourself permission to be free once again. It is time to open up that imagination. Stop denying it. Yes, you can be in this cottage. You can be in the Shaumbra room. You can be experiencing energies from all levels and dimensions… if you let yourself… if you let yourself. We can't do it for you. I CAN'T MAKE YOU OPEN UP. I can't make you let go of the things that are holding you back. YOU CAN. It is simply about making that decision and then doing it. It is simply about allowing the imagination to be as real as what you call your reality now.

< Embodiment 6QA > We want to talk a moment about one other type of blockage, one other thing that could possibly be holding you back. And, this is what we call a "spiritual blockage." You have - so many of you have - a preconceived notion or idea of what being spiritual is all about. You have this because you have spent so many of your lifetimes in spiritual service in the churches and synagogues, in the temples. So many of you have been instrumental in starting the modern religions of today. You have followed a very structured and disciplined path of spirituality. You have kept at it lifetime after lifetime. Yes, you have been attracted into different types of religions. And, many of you have actually in this lifetime chosen to go away from the religions on purpose.

< Embodiment 6QA > We have to say for you - for all of you - that sometimes that you reach the darkest levels, the levels of the most despair when you are about to make the greatest changes. Why is that? It is because it forces you to give up everything that you thought you were. It forces you to give up Old stories. It forces you to release things that no longer serve you. And, yes, it does feel terrible to go through. And, we have talked about this with you over and over again.

Now that you have gotten to the point of basically total release, you are finding that the Old doesn't work anymore, a primary cause of the depression and the frustration. The Old doesn't work. It's simply not responding. But, yet you keep going back and trying to use the Old over and over and over. And, you get more filled with despair and depression until you finally give up, until you finally surrender.

And, in that surrender are the answers. You are surrendering only to yourself. You are giving up all of the Old stories. You are surrendering to the higher nature of yourself and allowing that to come in and to be with you. We love and admire you, all of you who say, "I am at my end. I am in the darkest of the dark. I don't even know who I am anymore. But, yet I am going to continue to give it a try."

What we are going to ask you today is no longer give it a try because you keep trying with Old tools… you see. There is no need to struggle anymore. You can absolutely let go and trust your Self, your divine self, your human self. All of you… you can let go. You can understand that it may feel like falling off the edge of a cliff into an abyss.

But, that's when the true miracle happens. That's when you are at such a point that you allow your own divinity to come up. You release the limitations and the restrictions of the Old human way. You don't have to end your life to do that. You only need to end trying ending the Old ways, and allow all of this New that we have talked about today to come out. You are truly ready to set yourself free.

< Embodiment 6QA > For the most part children are getting out of balance because they don't have enough outlet for their creative energies. Now, they play these games. They play their electronic games. But, again that is - how to say - defining where their imagination can go. Someone else has set the parameters. They just play within it. They need to be able to imagine, like you did today, where you are right now and in my cottage. Is it real? Absolutely! Is it physical? Not! No, but it is the same for children. They are angry and agitated. And, hopefully, Shaumbra, you will help the rest of the world understand that it is time for the creative imagination energies to come in because all it is is Divine Intelligence.

< Embodiment 8 > We said recently that love has no connection… you see. You always thought that love was connection. It has none. It holds you to nothing. It holds you in no form or state of being. Love lets you be who you are and express who you are any way you want. Love has no connection… you see. You love each other. You love another person. You fall in love with them. And, what you do then? Well, you connect to each other. And, you thought that was normal and natural. You establish bonds and binds with each other. You limit and restrict each other. That is a form of love, but it is not the true freedom of the soul and the freedom of love. Love has no connection.

< Embodiment 8 > Many of you here were in the Temples of Tien where you understood how to free energies from its structures, so you could go into the multi-dimensional realms while still existing in a space in the physical Earth. Many of you worked with the great energies of Atlantis. And, you knew how to hold time still. You knew how to keep the body from aging. You knew how to heal. You knew how to transport material objects without touching them. Much of that technology was later used in the building of the pyramids. And, we understand some are going there soon. It was all about illusion, energy as an illusion. In the Temples of Tien you understood it.

< Embodiment 8QA > It's about releasing your limitations and accepting your "I-amness." Your limitations are, in a sense, all of the stories that you have created, your past life aspects. They are just stories, but there is a tendency to believe that they hold the power, that they hold the energies. They are just stories. It is about releasing them.

They want to be released. They want to be set free. They are in this - how to say - this type of crystal or structure that we talked about before, frozen in time and space, waiting for you to let them have their own freedom. When you do this, it lets go of your limitations and your acceptance of this hypnotic state that you have been in.

When you accept everything… everything… including what you consider crazy thoughts in your mind… when you consider what another… when you accept what another person does… when you accept your children… when you accept the world as it is… when you accept everything that happens… this also sets you free in a whole new way. It allows you to go beyond the limitations of the hypnosis.

Hypnosis requires limitations. Acceptance lets you fly past those. So, accepting, which is the compassion that we speak about so often, is so essential for your total freedom. It is very simple, and don't get so much into the head about it.

< Embodiment 9 > And, change is the most wonderful thing. You see, you are trying to solidify yourself in that story. But, the story - even the story - doesn't want to be the story any longer. Even the story that defends you and protects you and supports you knows that it is time for it to be released from its structure. Every energy ultimately has to be free of a structure. Every energy has to soar. Every energy has to be able to expand. As Tobias says, energy seeks resolution, fulfillment, and freedom. You have trapped energy in this illusion, in this body, in your identity. And, it is time to get out of that.

< Embodiment 9 > It is also about opening up, getting outside of that story that you're in. It's not about diminishing the story or getting rid of it. Some of you think that's what we are saying. Releasing is freeing the story, not getting rid of it, not hiding it. You can never, never successfully hide energy. Sooner or later it comes back up. We are asking you to release it from the structure that it has been placed in. We're asking you to take off all limitations about everything within you… limitations on the way you think… limitations of what you think is up or down… limitations that you have about wealth… limitations of energy. We are going to ask you to open up.

< Embodiment 9QA > Adamus talked to you about this whole concept of living beyond. It involves the intimate - the deepest and most intimate - trust with yourself. He talked about the concept of the total, unconditional love. And, again, you have heard the concepts. But, now you are going to start living this way, the total love of self, reintegrating every part of who you are. He talked about expanding, going beyond the limits. And, God knows, there are many limits that you create. The limits actually help you to understand the reality around you. But, the limitations and the restrictions on the energy also lock things into place.

< Embodiment 9QA > Letting go of all control releases all energy. That is when the unexpected begins to happen in your life. That is when the depression leaves and the passion comes in. Letting go of the control frees every bit of energy you put into a structure. It sounds simple. And, it's not.

< Embodiment 10 > Adamas talked about how he was trapped in the crystal and how he tried every means he knew to get out. He tried to force his way out. He tried to cry his way out, beg his way out. He tried to psych his way out. He tried everything. And, he finally learned that he was only using the tools from his reality. He had to go beyond. He had to live beyond. He had to literally expand his reality-base, for he had placed himself in a limited state of being.

< Embodiment 10 > His crystal is both a metaphor and a reality. But, it was a limitation, like each of you live in a crystal right now… yes, you do. You live in a beautiful crystal called "human." You are inside of it, wondering how to go beyond. You have tried to break out. Some of you even tried to end your life, thinking that would get you out of the crystal. It just puts you in a more solidified crystal, that's all. Some of you have tried to beg, borrow, steal, cheat, lie, every way out. It just makes the crystal a little bigger, a little harder, and a little brighter.

< Embodiment 10 > Shaumbra, you don't have to control a thing anymore. Now, that is a big step. That is a huge step. That is a step that most other humans couldn't even imagine. But, we're at that point now. Can you let go of the controls? What are the controls? What is control? Well, it's a limitation of energy. It is a way of the inner being literally trying to hold onto its identity. As we have said before, in the Old Energy every entity identity will try to preserve its own self… you see.

< Embodiment 10 > The synchronistic life, Shaumbra, is when the answer is there before the question is ever asked. That is true synchronicity. And, that is what some of you are beginning to experience, and all of you will experience. It is when it is there before the need ever, ever comes about. That is the synchronistic life. We will speak more about this in our next gathering of Shaumbra. But, for a moment take off the controls. Feel the energy of the synchronistic life… your life… without controls… without limitations… where everything is in a flow. It is flowing from you. It is not being set up by the others. It is your flow. It is your divinity, truly brought to Earth, living on Earth.

< Embodiment 10QA > Some of the dreams that you've had - and we've talked about lately - are not being manifested because you have limited the pathway for that energy to come into your reality. You have shut down all of the routes, the pathways, because you said, "It can't come in that way. That would be bad. I cannot think bad things." Even when you try to realize those dreams that we talked about, you say, "I can only dream of the dream as bright and fluffy and goody-two-shoes."

< Embodiment 10QA > And, so many of you have controls and limitations also when it comes to sexuality, too much to even get into a discussion here. You have infinite controls. Most in that was placed there, Shaumbra, the sexual controls that you have, because you were protecting yourself. So, you shut down. Now, it is time to open up. Try doing it a little bit different way. And, we are not speaking to you. We are speaking to all of Shaumbra.

< Embodiment 10QA > Indeed, you'll get to the point where you can truly be an observer without getting into all of the drama. In other words, you can see things for what they are. And, Adamas gets quite - how to say - emphatic about the churches. But, he sees it as a tremendous overlay, a tremendous state of hypnosis that is serving those who enter through its doors. But, for so many other humans, like Shaumbra, it is now - how to say - a barrier. It is a heavy weight. It is literally holding you back. For those who still go there, there is total honor. But, for you who are asking us to come here and help you to understand what is going on - why you feel stuck, why you are frustrated, why you feel empty - we have to be very direct.

And, we are not saying it is good or bad. We are just saying the churches - which are simply a consciousness of humanity - the church energy is holding many of you back. Go back and look at the controls that you have, particularly through the parent-self, based on the early church teachings. Then, go back and look at the controls, the massive series of controls, that you have from past lifetimes when you were in the churches. You took the vows. You spent hours on your knees and hours in very disciplined types of procedures or ceremonies. And, it does carry a tremendous overlay. We are not - how to say - saying churches are bad. We are not saying they are good. They simply have an overlay or hypnosis.

< Embodiment 11 > True creation is giving birth to something… giving birth to an idea, a feeling, a concept… giving birth to it… and then granting it "being-ness"… letting it continue to evolve… letting it continue to grow… not holding it back. Part of you feels a bit odd about that because you think when you create something that you then have to limit it. Then, you then have a responsibility and an obligation to it. And, it has a responsibility and an obligation to you. But, it doesn't.

< Embodiment 12 > One of the things that all of the angels of the universe, the archangels, came to feel and to know was that at some point we had to slow all of this down. We had to come to this material form of existence… what you call the Earth… matter… slowed down energy… third dimension… in order to have a truer, grander understanding of ourselves… in order to release us… or in a sense, re-integrate us in this Wall of Fire (limitation of 3-D). So, one of the things that we are literally experiencing right now is that we are still in the Wall of Fire. And, we are choosing yet another potential to be in a third-dimensional, material reality as our choice, a way to re-integrate what we feel to be all of those parts and pieces that were shattered, shattered on purpose, shattered in great love. But, to bring them back we felt the path of 3-D, a material world, would be the best.

< Clarity 2 > What happens if you hold back? In a sense, what happens to any energies that are pent-up, any energies that are enslaved, limited, or restricted: sooner or later they have to get out. Somehow they will manage to set themselves free. Perhaps, it is through the body or the mind. Perhaps, it will be attracting an external event to you that will get you into the driver's seat and going, moving. Again, no agenda on our part… it is your part we are responding to.

< Clarity 4 > Everyone gets fed. Everyone brings in energy, whether you're human or angelic. Everyone is being fed. Once you understand how you're being fed, how you're bringing energy into your reality, then you can understand how consciousness is shaped, how belief systems define reality and how then you can expand outside of what you believe to be the limitations of reality.

< Clarity 5 > It is not a punishment. You're not there even to save the world, you know. Some of you carry that responsibility. You feed on that. You're here to save the world. You are not. To put it succinctly you're here to discover what it's like to enjoy life. What does that mean for you? What does that mean? Well, it probably means having the energy to do the things that you want, to do the things that you love, not to have the limitations anymore. Enjoying life probably means letting go of some old belief systems that are still dogging you… that are still with you… letting go of some of the old overlays… particularly some of the concepts of "have" and "have-not."

< Clarity 5 > One of the things that holds so many of you back are things that you don't even recognize. There are still some levels of old vows and oaths that you have taken in the past, past meaning this lifetime. Some of you even took vows and oaths last week. There are some of those that are still holding you back from past lifetimes, lifetimes when you said, "I will never…" and then fill in the blank, lifetimes when you vowed to - how to say - some of you vowed to never enjoy sex. You took a vow, a holy vow for a religious order that "I will not enjoy sex." Some of you said you will not have abundance. There is an old overlay that said in order to discover God you had to be poor, you had to do without. And, it served a purpose for a while, but that too is last week's news. It is time to let go of that.

< Clarity 5 > You think that you need discipline to keep you focused. That is actually what has kept you limited. Discipline will definitely create a focus, but the focus can be so limiting. And, it causes things like depression. The human spirit was never intended to be so focused, so limited that it got lost. That is why so much depression occurs because these beings are screaming out from within, screaming out to be who they are, to enjoy life. But, all of the overlays, all of the hypnosis from themselves and from society holds them back. It is probably one of the greatest causes of depression - limitation. The spirit was not meant to be limited. You are not meant to be limited.

< Clarity 6 > But, what are the blocks? What is holding you back? Why doesn't it seem to work? Well, first of all you're trying too hard. You're trying to force it in, and you're trying to figure it in. You're trying to actually, some of you, con it in and manipulate it in, and it can't be. It is a realization. It is in itself its own belief system. It is an overlay absolutely. It is a belief that there is more to you than you. That is also a truism, but it is a belief. It is about allowing yourself to believe that, allowing yourself to get outside of the box that you've been in, but to do it without struggling and pushing and fighting.

< Clarity 6 > Another thing that definitely holds it back are vows, oaths, and promises that you've made to yourself. Every one of these vows and oaths and promises in this lifetime, or from past lifetimes, serves as a type of barrier… or blockage… a stone in the road… or a boulder in the road… or a nail, a nail that you nailed into the wall of your soul, to hold yourself in… a vow that you would never deal in the dark arts. My gosh… why not? Oh, you abused them; yes, we've heard about that before. It's time to get over that. Some of you said, "But I was a witch. I was a sorcerer. I was influenced by the dark." Rethink dark, Shaumbra. "Yes, but because of the type of magic that I carried at one point, others abused it." Well, that's true, but you didn't. Oh, some of you say, "But, yes, I did abuse it."

< Clarity 6 > So, what else is holding you back from this whole concept of potentials, new potentials brought forth? Well, there are very heavy overlays coming from outside of you, coming from other people - your co-workers, people you meet on the streets. There are particularly heavy overlays from television and the media because they are feeding everyone else. Oh, the media is the greatest feeding mechanism that we possibly know of because it can feed many at one time. It feeds realities and belief systems. And, it supports the manifestation of beliefs all over the world.

< Clarity 6 > One of the other blockages, Shaumbra, the biggest blockage, the biggest blockage of all… you've been operating in the body, in the brain, and to an extent the feeling levels or dimensions. You've been removed from Spirit. Spirit has been with you, even though you've been looking out there. Spirit has been there. Now, let's bring in Spirit into this mix. It is you; it is the "I am." It is the awareness. It is the part that knows no death… you see. Spirit cannot know death… ever… never. There is no death in the heart of Spirit. It is re-creation, re-creating, re-inventing yourself over and over.

< Clarity 6 > One of the biggest blockages is the different agendas - the human agenda versus the spiritual delight, the spiritual purpose, the spiritual presence. You have been asking for all of these things in your life to satisfy the car - to try to fix the wheels, to try to take the tears out of the upholstery, to try to correct the rust, to try to make the engine sputter a few more miles. Your focus, Shaumbra, humans, has been on repairing the car.

< Clarity 6 > And, it's time to re-invent the car, re-create the car, and stop trying to rebuild it. The fear has been death. The fear has been finality. You've been operating in the three - what we would call - lower levels, or basic levels, of trying to always maintain the integrity of the car, trying to preserve and protect it. So, your agenda for making the car just a little shinier, a little faster, making the car a little better than someone else's is not necessarily consistent with the desire of the soul. You've been removed from your soul because you've been trying to focus on the basic things of keeping that old car running.

< Clarity 6 > So, you see, the biggest blockage of all has been what you consider to be your agenda, your desires versus the soul desire. We are going to put these together. We're going to bring them back together. We're going to put them into an eclipse together, a soul eclipse, a complete understanding. You see, you think your soul knows everything your humanness wants. It doesn't because you've shut it out. You've barricaded it. You've had so many vows and oaths and promises. You've cut out soul and (human) self. And, let's bring them back together now.

< MNEC2006-T > And there were those in power who truly loved this idea because they saw that it (mind control) brought about a conformity and a standardization. It also kept some from going too fast and others going too slow, but it also allowed groups and eventually all of humanity to be able to be hypnotized, controlled, limited.

< Teacher 8 > So it is that many are going to be working with thought focus. You're going to see more and more. You've been through it yourselves. You played with it 10 years ago, 20 years ago of time, but you know now that it goes beyond the focused thought from the mind. It can bring marginal results, but generally it will leave you empty. You all know it. You've been there and done that. Your affirmations didn't work. Well they did for the first month or two perhaps. They had some interesting results, and then they seemed to fall apart. By the way, at that point you lost some trust in yourself. It's a point we're going to come back to in another Shoud. You tried the affirmations, you tried the visualization, and it didn't work. Why? Because it came from the limitations of the mind. It came from the same place that has held you in a type of hypnotic belief system for a long time. Positive thinking is just thinking. It has its limitations. True consciousness goes far beyond what the mind can even imagine today.

< Discovery 5 > Beliefs are kind of like power. They're an illusion. They're made up. Not that they're bad – they're a fun tool to play with – but at a certain point, they get old. It's freedom from beliefs, freedom from limitations. And, again, while that sounds wonderful, it is a tremendous responsibility. Many people who are given the choice of freedom will find a lot of excuses not to accept it, not to take it. Those, to me, are the issues for 2014. There's going to be a lot, a lot, a lot going on in the world. Come back though to the underlying fundamental reasons for it; it's power and freedom.

< Discovery 7 > The limitations and beliefs are serving you, because they kind of keep you held in, because you think you're going to splatter all over the universe if you let go. You think you're going to be in so many parts and pieces over all of creation, you'll never be able to pull yourself together again, like some bad psychic science experiment, you know. (some chuckles) So you hold it in. You hold it in. But it actually is pretty safe when you open up. Much safer.

< Kharisma 2 > The beautiful thing about enlightenment is it's natural. It cannot be controlled, even by your Patrick. It cannot be manipulated by that singular 'trying to make life a little better' Patrick. Your enlightenment isn't there because you thought you asked for it. Your enlightenment isn't there because you begged for it or because you're really sincere about it. It's there because it's who you really are. Your enlightenment isn't something that you can manipulate or manage. You can pretend for a while that you're going to manipulate it. But, my dear friends, it is unrelenting. It is brutal in its compassion. It will release you from your limitations. It will give you your freedom, no matter what it takes, no matter how many tormented nights, no matter how many diseases, no matter how many illnesses, bad relationships or anything else. It's there in the compassion.
