Enlightening human beings are doing a very good job of using their various tools when things are feeling good and life is appearing what they would call normal. But when the energies get a little more difficult, the idea of using any of those tools goes right out the window! Dear Ones, the tools you have lovingly gathered for yourselves are for use all the time, especially when the energies get more challenging!
You are continuing to be in a phase of influx of higher energies. Your tools are to help you move along with these energies, to shift and to integrate with the greatest ease possible. Yes, sometimes these shift and integration periods can cause some discomfort. If you decide to abandon the skills that help you move through that, or worse, move into the lower energies of self distraction or self medicating to deal with that discomfort, you are creating an even greater divide between where you are and where you wish to be.
With your divine wisdom you have gathered everything you need to shift and shine, but you must apply what you know in order to do so with the greatest ease and brilliance. You no longer need to be in the learn/forget/discomfort/remember/apply cycle. Consistency assures a much smoother and enjoyable ascension experience. ~Archangel Gabriel
