suffering / pain / scars / wounds

; shame; punishment;

< Creator 2 > Susan realized how tightly she had been clenching. When she opened up, she remembered the parable of Oryan in the canoe going over the waterfall. She did not care. She opened up. She said, "it is time for me to release all of who I thought I was. It is time for me to release all of the beliefs that I have carried with me. It is time for me release any guilt, any pain. It is time for me, as I open my hands, to accept my human self. As I do, I will surely begin to know my divine self."

< Creator 2 > We ACCEPT you and LOVE you as human. We accept every thought, every deed, every action, everything in the passion and love and wisdom of Spirit. The Eternal One loves you infinitely, endlessly, and without condition! As we have said before, Spirit has no agenda. There is not a right way or a wrong way. There is only the new way, and you are creating it. If Spirit loves you so deeply and has no agenda, then dear teachers, you should be able to accept your human selves, to release as Susan did. As Susan released the grip of all her beliefs and guilt and pain, and she accepted everything that she had ever done unconditionally in the form of total forgiveness of self, she began to understand her own divinity.

< Creator 2 > She said, as she released her grip and opened her palm, "I will now live in the NOW. I will no longer fear a future that does not exist. I will live in the NOW." She began living in the NOW, as she continued to practice standing behind the short wall in acceptance of all that is. As she began to consciously release her grip on her own guilt and pain and the past, she realized that she was creating a moment, a divine moment, in all of the NOW that she was living. She was learning once again to trust self. She was learning that there was no need to project a future fear scenario, but simply to live in the NOW. As she did, there was a unique melding of her humanness with her divinity.

< Creator 2 > The challenge here will be to accept your human self. It is thick, and it is deep within you. You are well invested in the guilt and the pain and the challenge. With the simple exercise we have given - of opening your hand - you will begin to see how often you are gripping onto things of the past that no longer serve you. That includes old belief systems that are ready to go. Many of the pains you are feeling in your physical body are related directly to holding onto old belief systems that no longer serve you. You are feeling the pains in your physical body as a reminder to you to let go, to release the grip. These are pains of old beliefs, of guilt, of the way you thought things should be. Letting go allows the divineness to come in and provide that moment that you chose to create.

< Creator 11 > Even at this moment, your father and their father and their father, join you. The angels who facilitate this energy come in now to work with them and work with you to heal something that has been wounded. It has been in need of healing and balancing and attunement ever since you left Home.

< Ascension 7QA > When you come through this, when you complete the circle, believe it or not, you will look back and not see pain or suffering. Believe it or not. It only appears that way when you are in the midst of it. The pain and suffering only appears that way when you are caught up in duality. The pain and suffering that you have right now - Cauldre does not believe us! - but it is only an illusion, dear friends. It is only an illusion.

As you release your agendas, as you "know no agenda," you will chuckle because you will realize there never truly was any pain or suffering. How could God, who loves you so much, and the angels who love you so much, and Metatron who loves you, and is like a child in this playground of humanness … how could true pain or suffering take place? It is an illusion based on your experiences in duality.

When your agendas are released, there is no pain. When the boulders representing your agendas are pulled from the river, there is nothing for the water to push against. There will be no agendas for the energies of spirituality, of your divinity, to have friction against when you agendas are removed. Then you will see that there never truly was pain. It was an illusion.

< Ascension sp > Oh, indeed there are scars from some of these experiences, but the scars are only illusions. The wounds are only a perception that can change, that can be released. When the scars and the wounds have healed and are gone, what is left is wisdom. Pure, unadulterated wisdom within your soul. This is part of consciousness.

< Ascension sp > "How do I change my consciousness?" You simply release your old consciousness. That is all. When you release the consciousness of yesterday, it opens the way for your new consciousness to come in. It is always changing, and you will continue to go through releases and releases. The energy only gets stuck and only becomes painful to you physically, mentally, emotionally when you hold on. Release the concepts that might have been true yesterday, or the day before. Release the energy of old experiences. Release the traumas of the past, and those pains and sufferings of the past. What we are saying to you is, "Release fully."

< Ascension spQA > Understand that you are more sensitive than ever in this New Energy. You are opening up right now. You are feeling the sadness that Metatron spoke of earlier, a sadness brought in by the winds of change - both literal and figurative winds - that are upon the face of Earth right now. You are feeling others' suffering and pain. You are taking it as your own in so many cases. You are feeling the burdens of others. Understand what it is, and honor it, but understand, dear ones, that it does not necessarily come from you.

You are also riding many cycles within yourself, ups and downs. They are becoming more intense and more frequent. It is the energies of duality, seemingly going out of phase, because, in a sense, that is literally what they are doing. Light and dark were always phased appropriately. Now they are going out of phase. You will feel these dips. You will feel the peaks also. They are going out of phase in order to realign in this new marriage that we spoke of earlier. In doing so, you are creating a New Energy.

First go within to know if this sadness, is coming from you or from the outside. If it is coming from you, understand that it is part of a process. Understand that the lows are helping to build a momentum to move through this energetic shift, to move you into the New Energy.

< DivineHuman 1QA > The role of pain and suffering is tied directly into duality. It is part of the balance of positive and negative you've given yourself. Pain can be a wonderful thing. It teaches you many lessons. It helps you guide yourself through life. If you did not have pain, and you did not have emotional suffering, you would not have a depth of experience.

Now, many humans try to eliminate pain and eliminate suffering. What they try to do is put a blanket over it. They try to stamp it out. Some try to do it with the drugs we have spoken of that we do not so much appreciate (psychotropic drugs) Indeed, you will greatly reduce the level of your pain, but you will also greatly reduce the level of your experience. Pain is only painful when it lands on a friction within you, a resistance within you.

When pain comes to you, whether it is physical or emotional, do not try to run from it, or stamp it out. Once again, ask that energy why it is visiting you. It will tell you something. It will give you an enlightenment and an understanding that is valuable.

Now, we have also said that pain, or what you call "the lows," are an important part of the natural cycle. These periods of emotional depression, or physical disease, or discomfort, provide a momentum and an energy that helps you move forward to the next new level of enlightenment.

When you reach a certain point on your path, the pain and the suffering will not affect you like it did before. There is less resistance within your being. As you told yourself today in the Shoud, you accept all aspects, light and dark. When you accept all aspects, there is no internal friction for the pain to fall upon. It's not that you will be without pain, but it will give you a new sensation. It will not be so painful! (audience laughter) In a sense, it will be just a different form of energy coming to you that you can then utilize on your path.

Also, as you come into a greater understanding of things you will not be in so much pain. You will understand how to rebalance your physical body. You will understand how to rebalance your emotion. But, know that pain and suffering are all part of the learning experience.

Pain served you well in the past. Understand that now where you're at on your path, you do not need this pain to the degree that you have needed it before. You do not need to choose pain and suffering, just as you do not need to choose poverty, and you did not need to choose the lack of love. So, don't try to hide it. Don't try to stamp it out. But, understand that it is not anything that you need to the degree that you have had in the past.

< DivineHuman 5 > The changes you made by facing the darkness within you, by facing your fears, by releasing old wounds… these changes have changed your world to the point where you did not need to go through any sort of catastrophe or termination. The work that you have done within yourself is the true work. The work you have done internally has changed people all around you. It has prevented what could have been very catastrophic Earth changes.

< DivineHuman 5QA > Understand, as difficult as it may be, understand that this pain that you carry, first of all, is just an illusion. It doesn't feel that way. But, indeed, it is just an illusion. Understand that you can demand that this pain be gone. You can insist on it. YOU are the creator. You are the ruler of your own kingdom. This pain is there because of old issues, indeed. But, you are still allowing it to reside within you.

You can remove the pain. Tell it to be gone. And, if it comes back, it is just testing you to see how strong you are. You are just testing yourself to see how strong you are. If it comes back, demand that it be gone again. Demand that it leave.

Now, this is a good issue, Shaumbra, because so often when you change your mind set, when you release things, so often they do come back because it is a self-test. It is a way of you asking yourself if you were truly serious about who you are and what you are doing. Sometimes you have to repeat this over and over until, at the soul level you understand, and you can hear your own voice, saying "I Am." So, it is best with this pain to tell it it no longer has a place in your life, to tell it to be gone. You are the creator. You are the ruler of your own kingdom.

< NewEnergy 2 > But humanity was still filled with guilt, still filled with so much struggling and suffering that they could not hear your words or the words of Yeshua. Indeed, they nailed Yeshua to a cross! Dear friends, the cross is a divine symbol, a sacred geometric pattern. It is the intersection of the divine and the human. The horizontal line represents the human, and the vertical line represents the divine. They intersect, and all of the elements are equal and balanced. There is not one line longer than the other. It is a sacred symbol that has been around for a long, long time. It has also been abused by many.

< NewEnergy 2 > As this new potential for knowing the God within was awakening on the planet at that time, humanity did something to this sacred symbol (cross). They nailed a man to it! They placed a horrible energy on this sacred symbol. They put suffering in the doorway of divine revelation. It has stayed there ever since. That is why John Paul comes in today. He understands. He has done his work in trying to help remove this suffering energy from humanity.

< NewEnergy 2 > We continue the energy on this day to help release the suffering that you think has to be part of your reality. We challenged the group on that day to let go of the suffering within them. You do not need it in your life. But, you believe in it. You are almost stuck in it. Even though we say, "Are you ready to leave mass consciousness," you bring suffering with you. It is so imbedded that you think that it is part of you. When you leave mass consciousness, you can leave so many things behind. But, in your suitcase, you carry suffering.

< NewEnergy 2 > For those who asked the question, "Did Jesus indeed die on the cross," the answer is, yes, he did not continue living as a human on Earth. His energy stayed very present on Earth. It still is. He can't help it. He's nailed on the cross. But, the man, the body died. The work continued. It continues today in you and through you. So many of you are so deeply invested in those times of 2,000 years ago, so deeply invested in the suffering and the struggling that took place. You can't let it go. So many of YOU are still nailed on the cross. When are you going to allow yourself to live without struggling, without suffering? Take Jesus off the cross. Take yourself off the cross!

< NewEnergy 4 > It is the energy of Chiron, the Wounded Warrior… the victim… the warrior who has guilt of what he has done… the wounds, the karma, and the remembrance of the past. So, the Wounded Warrior has to come in right now to be part of this Star of David to say, "Are you ready to release the wounds?"… because that is what keeps the two halves from coming back together. That is what is keeping the union of the male and female from happening - is the Wounded Warrior, Chiron. That is what is keeping the separation of heaven and Earth - Chiron.

< NewEnergy 4 > The wound is deep. That is part of the reason for the anger also that you have been experiencing. Why… why the wound? Will the wound ever heal? Or must we continue on this cycle again, a cycle that could span tens of thousands of years? The alignment that is coming about (Harmonic Concordance) - that was going to be there anyway - the alignment is very rare, very rare. There is the eclipse that happens with it, the hiding of the moon energy, the hiding, the - how to say - something that comes between the male and the female. But, it is also a time of clearing.

< NewEnergy 4 > But, understand that the energy of Chiron is so strong that you may miss the whole point. The energy of Chiron is so overwhelming, the wounds so deep that you may let this opportunity, this event pass because the wounds are so deep… and the sadness. Or it will bring back… it will bring back the remembrance of where you have been. This will be a very intense week for many of you, a time for deep breathing. It will bring back - whether it is to your intellect or just to your inner feelings - remembrances of a long, long time ago, long before you ever came to Earth, mostly of those times before you ever came to Earth.

< NewEnergy 4 > Part of this process of healing, of understanding the wounds… your wound is simply a division. That's all it is - a division, a cut that divides. Part of it is taking responsibility for all of your journey, for everything up to now. But, in responsibility comes enlightenment… and love… and understanding… and compassion of why you created what you created. Responsibility is knowing that you did something… that you created… but also knowing there was a divine plan in it.

< 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.

< 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.

< NewEnergy 12 > So, as the AH and the OH energies within you began the experience outside of Home, there was such tremendous love between them, such compassion and sharing that the OH energy - the dark energy - said to the AH, "I love you so much that I will take on all of your pain. I have so much compassion for you that I will take on everything that you don't love about yourself. I have so much joy in the journey that you are about to embark on that I will take on everything that you don't like about your journey. I love you that much." And, over the course of eons of time and many lifetimes on Earth, the AH and the OH energy have been playing together, have been supporting each other, have been loving each other.

< NewEnergy 12 > The OH energy has taken on all of the attributes of "dark," all of the attributes of "negative," all of the attributes of the pain in honor and compassion for the AH energy. The OH energy has allowed itself to be separated in consciousness from the AH energy because the AH energy couldn't bear to look at it any longer. Because the darkness was being absorbed within the OH energy, it became burdened. It became crippled. It became ugly. It became vile in the eyes of the AH. Dear friends, what we are talking about here is the separation of light and dark, the reality of what light and dark energies are. They are nothing like humanity understands them to be right now.

< Embodiment 1 > You chose, so many of you, to incarnate into - you call them - dysfunctional families, very difficult families. Indeed, part of this was the understanding of going into these families… the understanding of how the light and the dark works… how you can become trapped in this whole game… how you can set up such a battle of duality in yourself… how this can cause such pain and suffering. In a sense, you gave yourself what would be the type of catapult, the type of mechanism that would eventually trigger you into doing the work of Shaumbra, into being the teachers, into keeping you from getting too comfortable in human form. So, you chose the difficult lives in so many cases.

< Embodiment 8QA > It is appropriate not to die in the way humans have been dying. The suffering that they go through causes them to have to come back to Earth. It pulls them in, whether they want to or not. It sucks them back in because they died with suffering. The church states in these books that they help to write that there are beings who live off the blood of others; they don't have to eat food. I have to wonder who is truly living off the blood and living off the energy.

< Clarity 4 > Some of you have to have suffering in your life. Perhaps, it is physical or emotional. You say you don't like it. But, if you didn't truly like it, didn't truly want it, it truly wouldn't be there. You're bringing suffering in at some level because it feeds you. It is an energy. Imagine it is an energy that flows along a type of etheric pipeline, coming right into you, right into your consciousness, into your Now moment.

< Master 8 > So, did Yeshua die on the cross? No. He came alive on the cross. Physical body didn't mean anything. He knew it at the point of the 'cross.' By the way, this symbol was picked up hundreds and hundreds of years later as a form of hypnosis, suffering - "He died for your sins." I don't think so. I don't think so. Nobody can die for your sins. But this was originally meant as this point of intersection - the cross, the coming together - and it was used later to signify suffering and pain and guilt and control.
