< New Earth 13QA > This energy attribute that is called shame is what you would call the original sin. Prior to coming here to this Earth, as you know, each of you was an angel. Each of you was a grand creator. When the energy templates of Earth were set up to enable the veil or duality to come in, you did not anticipate, nor did we anticipate, or even Spirit anticipate, the depth and the difficulty of disconnecting your conscious being with Spirit.
When you then descended to Earth at that time and, in a sense speaking metaphorically, woke up in a human body and found yourself disconnected from Spirit, there was a great and overwhelming sense of shame. A great sense of shame. You felt you had done wrong, that you had disappointed Spirit. This sense, this original sin, has stayed with each of you ever since. Your own churches have built stories on it. It has been used to disempower people, and it has been used to tell people that they must crawl on their hands and knees back to Spirit.
This element of shame has been an original energy imprint of your Earth soul ever since the days that you came here. And it will be one of the most difficult to get rid of. With understanding that Spirit loves you and has always loved you, with understandings that you are perfection… with understandings that you came here to bring something important to all of creation - this will help dissolve the shame. This will help dissolve it.
< New Earth 14 > Think of how you judge yourselves. Think of how you hold guilt and shame. You think you have not done the "right" thing at some point or the other in your lifetime. Now look at it from God’s perspective. Switch over to that consciousness for a moment and see that there is no judgement. See that there is only love. There is no judgement for any part of your past or anything that has occurred along the path. There is only love and understanding. This is not a test that you are in, and it never has been. There are no tests. There is no agenda. It simply is.
< Creator 7 > There is an ingrained fear within you, within all humans, of your creator powers. There is a reluctance to create once again, for it has been a long time, and there is still a shame and a guilt associated with what you perceive you have done in the past. There is an original sin that you perceive in yourself of crossing through this Wall of Fire. You feel you went too far. You feel that you battled in the energy of chaos in the process of the building of the void. Oh, dear friends, the battles that took place then would make Star Wars look like child’s play! So when we talk of using your true creator abilities, some of you may be taken aback. Some of you will wonder if this is the right thing and think perhaps that it is not time.
< Creator 7 > First you may come to some fear here. You may wonder what you are really creating, and what is going to happen as a result of your new creation? This fear relates back to the time before you came to Earth. It relates to the shame that you have felt for crossing through the Wall of Fire, for leaving the kingdom. Address this fear. Sit with it in your new house. Understand it and talk to it. This fear could be your best friend, or as a creator this fear could be your worst enemy. This fear, if left unattended, will come back to you. It will come back looking like an alien. (audience laughter) We mean that seriously. If you allow this fear to grow and to have power, it will take you back to places where this fear was birthed.
< NewEnergy 4 > You think because of some of the - how to say - your perception of destruction and chaos, of working with the dark forces… you think that is something to be shameful of. You have carried that wound with you for so long. Some of you here allowed yourself to be enlisted by the dark forces. Oh, your movies (referring to the Star Wars movies) depict it so well. You go over to the dark side. You work for them because of your anger. And, then you feel guilty about it, and you make yourself suffer. We are talking about events that took place a long, long time ago, in a place far, far away. But, dear friends, it was only a breath away.
< NewEnergy 5 > And, they come in now, knowing that you have chosen to heal, bringing back together all of the energies. They come in today… particularly for those who are going through some of the struggles of healing the old wounds… a feeling that they are not worthy to let go… a feeling of shame for things that have been done in the past… and for you who have been physically abused. For you women who have been physically abused, this is a sign that you did not feel worthy, that you opened yourself up to this type of abuse. And, it is time to heal that now.
< 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.
< freedom 2 > The first forgiveness is for separation. There is a guilt, a shame that you are carrying around – and been carrying around for a long time – that you did something wrong by getting separated. Did you really get separated from Spirit? No. You, you … there's a very deep wound that you have from that – it goes way, way back to when you crossed through the Wall of Fire a long time ago, but it's also very current, very present – and you keep repeating separation over and over, trying to learn something new.
< Discovery 4 > Where at one point you had felt like a mighty grand being, royalty, boss, the big guy, the big lady, power and everything else, and suddenly coming face to face with your own soul who doesn't see you quite that way. Your soul who says, “What was that lifetime about?” Suddenly, falling into the abyss, seeing the ghosts of yourself and of your past, and then what? To raise you up from those depths and that darkness, then what? Forgiveness of yourself. Taking a deep breath and releasing all of that guilt, all of that shame. Not an easy thing to do. Saying, not just saying in your head, but saying, “I release myself. These were experiences in a lower consciousness in a less awareness time. These were part of my experiences and everyone else's.”
< Wings 11 > You know they're there, you actually know what they are, but the mind plays a game. The mind plays a huge game and, first of all, it will deny being a victim, until you finally realize that your own guilt is the biggest sense of victimness that you'll ever have. You hang on to that guilt. You hang on to it out of shame. You hang on to it as the biggest form of self-testing that you have. You won't let it go because you're feeling too guilty. You're feeling that you did something so incredibly terrible, you can't let it go. How could you let it go? There's something inside you that says, “That wouldn't be right to just release myself from that. I have to carry that around in order to remind myself not to be a bad human anymore.” So you have this guilt that turns you into your own victim. Usually, one thinks of the victim as being something outside of them. But actually, the biggest victim, the biggest cause of being a victim is yourself, your guilt.
< Emergence 1 > One of the other fundamental realizations is that you realize that, as the human, that guilt and shame are self-indulgent human distortions. There's no room for them in Emergence. There's no room for dwelling in the past, carrying the load of guilt or shame. And to the human sometimes that's troubling, because the human feels it needs to cover itself in guilt as to not repeat mistakes from the past. It's been trained, it's been hypnotized into believing that guilt will keep the human in its place, from abusing power, from harming others, from destroying creations.
< Emergence 1 > But now you cannot possibly do so. You have the wisdom of the Master. You have the joy. You have the consciousness of the I Am. There's no place where you go now into Emergence for any guilt or shame. It's time to let go of all that and move forward into the joy of your experience in your creations.
