Greetings, Dear Ones! How pleased and honoured we are to be connecting with you today. We wish to take a moment to offer our deepest congratulations on how remarkably you have moved forward through the energies of 2017 onto the new platform on which you stand today. It has been no small feat, and not only do we wish for you to acknowledge all you have done, we also wish for you to trust in all you have achieved.
In order to fully understand the energies of 2018, it is helpful to look back on 2017 and understand how important it was on many levels. It was an intense year, filled with tremendous releasing, healing, personal discovery (often coming through the clarity of what is energetically expired and no longer wanted in your life), and completion.
While you were continuing your roles of pioneers on the planet, many of you felt like you were wading through quick sand in all your efforts. Along with massive downloads of transformational energies coming from the universe and being bombarded by the throes of unsupported 3D energy and the discomfort that created in the collective, it has been a challenging time, to be sure.
But here you are, on the dawn of a new day, ready to look forward and create like never before. How we love your resiliency, your commitment, your courage!
What many of you do not realize is the profound shift of phase that occurred during 2017. As the pioneers of the great shift of consciousness, many of you are having what is like two distinct lifetimes in one. The first phase, which was from your birth until around the time of total eclipse in August 2017, was for most of you, a very intense phase, filled with many things on your soul agenda, as well as service contracts.
You knew the ascension could very well happen this time around so you were deeply committed to your mission, as many of you have had other life experiences where the ascension was attempted and was not successful. As high vibrational souls, the density of earth was very difficult to be in, yet here you were, with your caring and loving hearts, committed to change and transformation.
You also packed a lot into this incarnation, many of you experiencing abuse and injustice, judgment, control, abandonment, neglect, and not being seen or honoured in your truth. This suffering created a great compassion and empathy within yourselves, as well as kept your energetic sensitivities high, which would serve you well in your future roles.
You have been busy releasing old soul contracts, doing soul retrievals, balancing personal karma, healing, forgiving, and moving tremendous amounts of energy, all the while holding a higher vibrational stamp that meant you were in service through your energetics the whole time. You had very long to-do lists for this phase of your lifetime that you took very seriously. This is why so many of you have been so diligent, so serious, always wanting to make sure you are doing enough, that you aren’t missing anything, always looking for guidance on what you should be doing next.
As this first phase of your incarnation was coming to a close in 2017, many of you were experiencing the life reviews you would normally experience after you had transitioned from the body and returned Home. Because the shift is now energetically secured, you are transitioning from the first lifetime, but instead of going Home, you are choosing to stay in the body in order to continue to anchor and support the ascension process while on the planet, in a sense wanting to experience the fruits of your labour first hand.
It has been the life review that you have been doing this year that has made it particularly intense, revisiting many old unhealed issues from your past in your desire to heal and release them once and for all. This explains why many old memories have come up for you along with themes that you thought you had already addressed. Everything gets reviewed before a soul moves on to its next great adventure.
You tend to move backwards through this process, from your now moment back through time to your birth, so many of you were revisiting old early childhood conditioning and wounds that were waiting to be healed. You may have also found yourself going into pastlife expressions to heal continuing themes.
A great many of you have found connecting to your wounded inner child and becoming your own loving parent, guide, and best friend particularly healing. If you have not quite completed this process, please take the time to explore this opportunity for healing. It is through embracing and honouring your inner child you will find the seriousness lifting and start infusing greater fun and presence in your lives.
Releasing the old conditioning that has been present through this and past lifetimes also has been incredibly pertinent because it is the letting go of the martyred service contracts that will give you the opportunity to create joyful service as you move forward in new and empowered ways.
So, the old phase has been completed and many of you have been trying to get your bearings. As you continue to move forward, it will start to feel very much like your life pre-2018 is much like a past life.
Through your clarity, you get to choose what you wish to carry forward with you and what you wish to leave behind.
For many of you there has been an in between phase of knowing one stage has completed and trying to feel into how to move forward in new and empowered ways. You are shifting from the doing phase to the being phase, from initiate to actuate.
You are, in many cases, letting go of old forms of service and don’t know what the new ones are yet. You are acutely aware of what is expired but do not quite know what is replacing the old. It is a huge shift to let go of the need to do in order to be worthy, into the idea that simply being is indeed service and more than enough. That is the gift of 2018 and your emerging sovereignty!
“What should I do?” is being powerfully replaced with, “What will bring me joy? What do I wish to create?” and “How do I wish to express myself?” There will be less pressure to get everything right as you settle into honouring the power of experience. You understand that even if you try something and don’t like it, it adds to your expansion and gives you more clarity on what is the energetic match to you. You can always count on your ever expanding wisdom to lead the way.
You also understand that your expansion also adds to the expansion of the universe. You are finally becoming comfortable with being the expert on you, and giving yourself permission to shine brightly in your truth, understanding that is your greatest contribution and that your uniqueness adds immeasurably to the whole. You also understand that you are the only expert on you, and that following your heart is the way to your highest expression. This is profound self acceptance which is essential for moving forward and embracing your sovereignty.
You will shift from powerlessly hoping things will be better to choosing what you wish to create as a fully capable director of your own life expression. Stepping into your sovereignty is finally accepting your rightful place as an integral and honoured part of the whole. You will accept your innate worthiness as a beloved part of Source energy and as a part of that whole fully embrace your capabilities and access to all that is. It is embracing your wholeness that has always been there all along.
You have no interest in being rescued, or feeling like you need to rescue others, because you see and honour the divine capability in yourself and others. This is not to say that you will not continue to lovingly and compassionately help others. Through your surrender you will move willingly with the flow of highest service. You will simply always choose to help in ways that empower everyone. You will also completely accept and honour others when they do not wish to change, as well, understanding their soul knows exactly what it is doing. The shift from fixing to allowing and stepping forward in loving assistance when asked, is a huge one, and supports the empowerment of all.
You will be spending more time in the present as you step into the fresh energies of 2018 because you will understand that the past is wrapped up and the future is awaiting your creation. Due to your clarity and the higher vibrational energies, you will find your relationship with time changing tremendously, and will also be experiencing much more instant manifestation. You will also be getting more comfortable with the idea that manifesting is an ongoing process that has its own unfoldment that you can tweak and adjust as you go.
Because you are moving from one phase to another, you will find 2018 holds much more movement than previous years. You have untethered yourself from the past, and those old contracts which will allow the shifting of service, moving into different locations, and also new relationships in the form of higher vibrational friendships and higher dimensional relationships.
A great many human beings enter periods of solitude before they move into a higher vibrational love relationship. They will instinctively give themselves a time out, if you will, to release traditional 3D relationships and the templates of conditional love. This phase has been deep preparation for a completely different type of love experience, and many will be ready to move into higher vibrational relationships in the coming years. You are ready for great depth and a deeper knowing of oneself. You are yearning for the experiences of unconditional love and acceptance, both to give and receive, as another facet of your emerging sovereignty.
As you embrace your authentic power and truth, you will come more and more to both trust yourself, and the unending supports of the universe available to you as a part of the divine whole. You will start to see that through the operating system of surrender, faith, flow, and trust, you can experience yourself as a beloved part of Source energy. The deepening of your faith and trust will allow you to move confidently into creating in the energies beyond what you see, into greater experiences, matches and opportunities than you ever could have imagined in your wildest dreams. You fully embrace being part of a team, you as part of the ground crew, and your divine helpers who are overjoyed to help you in your creations.
Your unshakeable faith and trust in the universe, and in yourself, will help you anchor the energies of acceptance and allowing, which always leads to peace and unconditional love. You will be able to be and navigate through surrender and flow, continuing to expand and grow and self express in beautiful ways. It is embracing your wholeness that has always been there all along. Rather than looking for things to fix, you are secure in the fact that if something needs to be addressed it will be brought into your awareness, you will tend to whatever is required, and then you will get back into flowing and creating. Further, you will be able to embrace your ability to create much more fully because you know your previous experiences have given you the wisdom, compassion, and mindfulness that will ensure you use your power appropriately.
Power – what it is, what it isn’t, and how it should be used, will continue to be a global theme through 2018. There is much churning up of power issues, and the examination of this pivotal theme will start to bring forth much clarity. Those in their emerging sovereignty will anchor the energies and be beautiful teachers by example of what empowerment looks like and how it can serve the whole. Those who have not yet discovered their innate power will finally be ready to leave powerlessness behind and start to explore the many facets of empowerment. There is great potential for healing power issues collectively, which is essential for creating peace on your planet.
What glorious times you are in, Dear Ones! You will see much movement, both within yourselves and in others. Due to the wonderful paths you have paved, the next wave of awakening will have your examples to learn by and to follow, and because of this they will move forward much faster than was ever possible before. These are the souls that will willingly and excitedly step forward to fill the old service positions you may have vacated, in their next highest expression of self.
This is a time for you to continue to expand in your divine truth but to also enjoy the results of the work you have done, forever loving, contributing, expanding, and evolving, in new and much more joyous ways, as a pivotal part of the greatest time of humanity. We continue to be amazed by all you have done, and cannot wait to see what you will create in this new, unprecedented stage you are entering. And with that we will bid you adieu. It has been our great pleasure.
