SELF-LOVE AND THE ASCENSION PROCESS

JOHN

One morning recently, I went to a park near my house to ‘chat’ with Chief Joseph. The park is a quiet peaceful place and has a lake on its north side. Joseph and I come here often.

After I finished with Joseph, I decided to walk along the lake shore. From the pathway, I could see the entire lake. I'd never seen it from this vantage point before. As I walked along, enjoying the unusually cool clear summer air, I remembered I'd seen a long dam on one side of the lake several weeks earlier. I remembered it because, of the half dozen or so lakes in this town, this one has the longest dam, about 800 feet.

As I walked, I kept looking for the dam. But it was nowhere to be seen! I was baffled - I could see the whole lake there before me. But there was no dam! Finally, I reached the other end of the lake - I'd been at that end many times before. I turned to look back - and there was the dam!

The pathway I'd been walking on was right on top of the dam - for its whole length. But, because I was literally so close to it, I couldn't see it!

What a marvellous metaphor this is, I thought, for so many of our life experiences! Often, we're so close to something - or someone - we are literally blind to them. Joseph talks frequently about the grand and glorious divine beings we are. Yet, how many of us really believe his words? Now and then, yes, we might believe them. But do we believe them all the time?

We're so close to these great gods and goddesses of glory and grandeur - ourselves - that we cannot see them! And, if perhaps we have brief glimpses of them now and then, we don't believe what we're seeing.

Chief Joseph told me, not long ago, his sole purpose and entire mission in doing this work with Kathy and me is to literally put all three of us ‘out of business.’ When everyone on the planet remembers who they are - goddesses and gods - albeit in human form (but for just a little while) - there will be no more work for us. We - and our beloved Mother Earth - will have returned to the Light. We shall have found our way Home again.

And the remembering of our own divinity carries with it great responsibility - especially for those lightworkers who are "blazing the trail" for their sisters and brothers who are coming after them on the path. Part of that responsibility is to fulfil the mission our Soul Selves chose for us before we incarnated. We can best fulfil that mission when we are in "top condition" - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. When we treat ourselves with love, and honour our bodies' needs, not only are we doing the best things we can to fulfil our mission, but we are preparing ourselves for the ascension process as well.

What we're about to do right now we've never before done in this newsletter. And that is to share with you a private reading Chief Joseph gave some time ago. The reading is particularly pertinent to our discussion today. We have the permission of the client to use this reading, but with no names.

I want to briefly share a little of the reading's background here - again, with the client's permission, and, of course, without names. The client had been experiencing some disturbing physical symptoms in the months before the reading. There was some uncertainty as to whether there was a serious underlying illness or disease. Although quite spiritually aware and evolved, the client had been neglectful in certain ways - improper diet, overeating, occasional drinking to excess and so on.

So, as you can see, there was ample reason for apprehension. The following was Joseph's response to the client's deep concerns.

SPIRIT

First, let me address your concerns around your physical health. We've spoken of these before. However, today, I wish to be more specific and direct with you - as you knew ahead of time I would be.

The physical ‘symptoms,’ shall we say, you're experiencing - let me simply characterize them as relatively minor ‘irritations,’ if you will. And this is literally true - even though at times you have serious doubts (as to whether they were only minor irritations). I've spoken with you before of these irritations. Well, now is the time to rid yourself of them.

There is the potential - I said I would speak directly today - for these irritations to escalate into something more serious. However, you have held that potential "at bay," if you will, through your meditations and other spiritual work. You see, these "spiritual activities" have raised your overall vibrations considerably. And so, even though you have not taken the greatest care of your physical well-being - particularly as it relates to diet - your increased vibrations have allowed you to "transcend," if you will, the lower vibrations and energies which would have created, in other circumstances, serious physical disturbances.

So the point is, although you can certainly raise your personal vibrations above any dense or heavy – ‘unhealthy’ - substance (food or otherwise) you take into your body, it places a strain on your physical system. And this strain could ultimately erupt into something you could have easily avoided with greater care and nurturing of your physical being.

Now there are many ‘tangential’ areas, if you will, this topic could lead us into. For example, the spiritual aspects of substance addiction (food, drugs, alcohol - whatever). Yes, there are spiritual aspects and elements of addiction. After all, you are spiritual beings having a human experience, not the other way around. And so addiction - or any other "human" activity - will ultimately serve as a path back Home for the person involved. I bring this up today, in this context, because it is a topic I wish to discuss in greater detail at another time.

And so addiction - or any other "human" activity - will ultimately serve as a path back Home for the person involved. I bring this up today, in this context, because it is a topic I wish to discuss in greater detail at another time.

You, however, are not at the ‘point of addiction,’ shall we say. And it is important that you do not come to that point. The specific program you have recently designed for yourself is excellent. I approve every aspect of it. We don't need to discuss the details of it here - for we both know what those details are. What I do wish to emphasize here, though, is the importance, as I see it, of your following every part of this program - the diet, exercises, meditation periods, etc.

I am not advocating rigid adherence to a fixed routine, but simply a loving, nurturing attitude toward your physical body. This attitude will give you the incentive to follow a regular and healthier way of life, out of a deep love for yourself - every aspect of yourself.

One final point here. As you know, and as we have discussed before, the human race and your Earth Mother are moving into what is literally a ‘new age.’ We don't need to discuss details here. We and others have done that elsewhere. However, this movement into the new age is causing the vibrations, the energies, the frequencies, if you will, of all human beings - and of the planet itself - to rapidly increase. This is what some among you have called the ascension process - or transformation - the achieving of full consciousness.

My point in bringing this up is to simply say you will not be in the best position to fully and consciously participate in the transformation unless every aspect of your being is in ‘top form,’ shall we say. It is essential for you to be in excellent health - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I am NOT saying those who are less than perfectly healthy won't participate in the transformation - they shall, ultimately. It will just be a different, slower process than it needs to be.

If I've conveyed a sense of urgency here, that was precisely my intent. I don't mean to fill your heart with fear and alarm. I mean only to remind you, as gently and lovingly as I can, how important it is for you, and all the lightworkers, to move fully into your work - into your power - HERE AND NOW!

In making the full conscious choice to do that - and to make it a priority to nurture and love yourself on every level - you shall empower yourself to set a shining example - to "set the energies," if you will, for your sisters and brothers who are coming after you on the path.
