Our first channeling session after the retreat had The Council feeling a sense of “beginning a new chapter.” The Warrior was especially powerful during this session.
Here is a short clip from the session. Eloheim weaves together many tools in a short period of time It begins with a question about vision and covers, “What is true now?”, “Monk in the Marketplace”, “Mad Scientist”, moving house, changing jobs, and more!
The Guardians: No matter what you are doing, you are emanating. Accept the uncertainly of where your emanation goes and continue to keep the focus on you. The effect you have on others is not your truth. The experience you have of yourself is your truth, and reinvest in that with every breath. This is the authentic way of making a difference in the world.
Visionaries: You are in powerful times and have powerful opportunities, but you have to seize them powerfully. And the most power you will ever have is when you own your truth. You are powerful when you look a trigger in the eye – when you look at habit, fear, discomfort, pain, frustration – and say “I know what’s true about you.” You don’t flinch and you don’t go into “I suck.” You know that everything that’s happening for you is authentically how you meant it to be from a soul level. You face your first choice, even if it makes you weep, because you know you will find something there. And feel the joy of the truth that emerges; don’t skip over it. Revel in it a little bit so that you can reinforce the neural pathways of learning to always look for the gift.
Eloheim: (Spent a few minutes talking about the retreat and how it affected the Council). Transformation needs consistency, and that is hard because life throws lots of different things at you. You need to learn to be consistent with your tools in ever-changing circumstances. You would all make great monks in the cave, but that won’t get you what you want. You need to be monks in the marketplace, walking consciously in various circumstances and choosing for consciousness in every moment. When something arises, don’t let fear get too much of you before consciousness comes in. Catch yourself early and often, esp. when big triggers occur. It’s like the jacket on the coat rack. Fear is there, but are you going to pick it up? Are you going to pick up anxiety and wear it? Or are you going to just observe it hanging on the wall?
Some of you felt love during the retreat. Your defenses came off and you experienced, and witnessed, true vulnerability. That’s actually what we’re working towards – to live in a place that allows you to love yourself and to fall in love with the people you meet. But when you see yourself honestly and don’t appreciate what you see, that’s your static generator. Saying “I suck” – no matter what it is – is your true weakness. That is why “this is my first choice” is so powerful because it cuts away some of that. Vulnerability is seeing yourself honestly and still appreciating it. It’s saying “I love myself anyway.” You love the truth of you, whatever it is and however raw it makes you feel.
How do you stay in vulnerability while feeling discomfort? The answer is to say, “I’m not trying to avoid this place; I’m not trying to get away from it. I’m going to see what’s here.” It is not suffering because suffering is stuck, repeating pain. But vulnerability is abiding in discomfort, experiencing what comes up, and then progressing through it. “You’re here; I see you. I feel raw but I want my heart to open. I want to experience something else.”
(Eloheim also talked about the switch in chakras that happened about a year ago, when each Council member went down to the next lowest chakra).
Warrior: At the retreat, we said that “you are loved.” The entire fabric of creation is expressing love towards you – and, as you experience yourself experiencing the entire fabric of creation, you can’t avoid but be loved. The only thing between that and what you experience is your static – the “I’m not OK, I can’t receive, I don’t deserve.” But the oneness is true. You can’t avoid it – all you can do is hide from it. And the more you accept things as your “first choice,” the less static you generate, the more truth you see, and the more you realize the gift that is actually being offered to you.
The next moment you feel vulnerable, don’t hide from it, don’t run away from it. Don’t diminish it; don’t discount it. It is never weakness unless you go into “I suck.” Weakness has been a refuge for you, but it’s a false one. So when you encounter an enemy in battle, when you encounter a trigger, be in vulnerability. Be in the place where you can at least swing your sword. A horse – a trigger – is running towards you and you swing at it by throwing your truth at it. And you just hold in that space of truth.
Matiarch: You have come to a moment where you are saying, “yes, maybe I can let this thing go. Maybe I can catch myself a little bit earlier in triggers. Maybe, just maybe, I can let ‘I suck’ go.” The door is open. Push it open more. Walk through.
