The Illusion of Hardship
I AM Astrea Moon, here to assist you. As a child, your veil was very thin, and you remembered the peace and calm of your true Home in the higher dimensions. Unfortunately, as you grew up, all that remained of that memory was an inner yearning, a “Divine Discontent.” This Divine Discontent created a deep dissatisfaction with the third dimension and a longing for the reality that was just beyond your physical perceptions, yet deeply imprinted in your heart. This discontent nagged at you and forced you to go inside yourself to find that for which you longed. As the veils of illusion are released, your memory of Home is rekindled, and since your Multidimensional SELF is awake inside you, you know that you must bring your higher dimensional Home to physical Earth.
Again you enter the Circle. Sister Venus removes the first veil with total love and acceptance. She seems to see only the true you and never attends to the illusions upon which you have built your physical life. “Dear One, the veil lifted this evening is the Illusion of Hardship. The illusion of hardship has been greatly used throughout the Piscean Age to spur spiritual growth, because suffering hardships forced the devotee to turn the face of their God. This illusion was important at that time because humanity was measured by its work. Therefore, if you worked hard and suffered hardships, you could learn to be a good person or, as the church said at that time, you could redeem your sins. Fortunately, in the Aquarian Age, this concept is no longer necessary.
“The Piscean lesson was based on hard work, sacrifice and blind faith. Through remaining true to your God, even in the midst of the greatest hardships, you evolved spiritually. It was through confronting these conflicts that you eventually learned. Now, in the Age of Aquarius, you learn, not through conflict, but through remembering your true, Multidimensional SELF. Furthermore, you no longer need to spiritually evolve, for your Soul/SELF reminds you that you are NOW, and have always been, within the ONE. With the guidance of your Soul/SELF, you no longer need to suffer. You need only to surrender to your Soul. Remember, what seems impossible for your ego is simple for your Soul.”
As Brother Mars takes the veil, he adds, “The energy field of hardship is like water boiling in a kettle that so needs release that any opening will do. Since the illusion of hardship states that there could be no release from suffering while on Earth, humanity was forced to call upon the spiritual realm. Piscean humanity needed the direction of a God that was external to them, as they were too far removed from the concept of their inner Soul/SELF. Humanity in the dark time of the Piscean Age was like a child who needed rules, curfews and authority figures to guide its personal and social growth. Hardship was a means by which it could learn discipline, humility and self-control.
“On the other hand, in the present Aquarian Age of knowledge and spiritual freedom, humanity has grown beyond childhood. A God-parent far away in Heaven is no longer necessary. In your spiritual adulthood, you can experience God as the unconditionally loving, unifying force of All That Is. With the downloading and integration of your Multidimensional SELF, this force enters your physical form to allow you to experience your highest creative powers. From the perspective of your Soul/SELF, you can see your hardships as initiations into Lightbody and as components of the planetary ascension. From your growing unity consciousness, you realize that you are not alone in this process, as you can communicate with, Angels, Ascended Masters, Elohim and the many aspects of your SELF in other planets, galaxies and dimensions.”
Apollo Sun takes the veil and consigns it to fire as he says, “The illusion of hardship is remarkably difficult to release, as much of humanity’s self-image has been based upon the ability to sustain courage and fortitude in the face of adversity. However, the external world is merely a reflection of your internal reality. Therefore, external hardships are a reflection of internal strife. Go deep inside yourself to release this veil of illusion. The challenge is not of being human in the world, but of being divine within yourself. Once you fully merge with your Multidimensional SELF in your daily life, your Eyes of Soul will open to see the glory of your inner peace, love and beauty reflected into your daily life.”
Look at your outer world through the eyes of your inner SELF.
The Illusion of Sleep
As you enter the Circle again, Sister Venus removes another veil, as she says, “This veil that is lifted this evening is the Illusion of Sleep. Actually, what is sleep to one of your bodies is increased activity to another. If you were to be conscious of this constant activity, you would likely feel deeply exhausted. Therefore, the illusion of sleep is created so that your physical self can believe that you are resting. Your physical earth vessel lives in a land of resistance and requires rest and sleep so that it can be rejuvenated. This sleep also allows your consciousness to be awake in your higher dimensional SELVES.
“On the physical plane, life moves very slowly and is bound in thick density that is similar to a bathtub filled with Jell-O. Because of this, your consciousness yearns to join your higher bodies while your earth vessel sleeps. In this manner, you can experience the fluidity and mobility of the higher dimensions where reality can be changed at the speed of thought. If you are not aware that you have other bodies, higher dimensional experiences may be too threatening to your physical reality’s belief system. Therefore, these experiences are forgotten, and dreams are created. In compliance with the needs of your physical belief system, each of you creates dreams to gently remind you of your inner life.”
Brother Mars takes the veil and adds, “As you expand your physical consciousness to experience your inner bodies while awake, it becomes easier and easier to bring forward your true experiences during sleep. In the higher dimensions, we do not speak in sequential words. We communicate telepathically in images, feelings and inner sounds. Hence, much of the information that you receive from your higher dimensional bodies can only be sent to your physical consciousness via the images of your dreams.
“These images, feelings and sounds must, first of all, be remembered, and, secondly, be translated into the language of your waking life. The best way to translate your dreams into third dimensional language is to communicate with your Soul/SELF while in meditation. Your SELF can then assist you in understanding your dream images and translating those images into your language.
“It is important that you are fully grounded in your physical body when you communicate with your SELF for it’s resonance is of a much higher vibration than your physical brain is used to receiving. If you are not sufficiently grounded, you can literally short-circuit your thinking process. You do not need the third grounding prong to plug in and use an iron. However, you could short-circuit your house if you plugged in your oven without the grounding prong. An important step in learning the imagistic higher dimensional language is to learn your physical body’s language of emotion, as your emotions give you important information about your inner and outer worlds.”
Apollo Sun continues, “The ability to gather information and gain awareness of other realities gives you great power. It is, therefore, important that you are morally ready before you begin this service. And, this act must, indeed, be a service. If you travel inter-dimensionally for a selfish motive, you create a great dissonance in your reality. When you cross into the higher dimensions while under the illusion of sleep, your own SELF who lives by the mores of the higher dimensions is leading you. However, when you maintain a conscious connection with physical self and cross over, you may forget to complete the connection with your SELF. The ego/self may believe it is running the show, and this belief can lead to great danger. Acting from the ego/self was what caused the wizards and magicians of the past to run astray from their Divine Path. Remember, before beginning a journey into the higher planes, merge with your Soul/SELF.
“Your Soul/SELF resonates to a frequency that is free of the corruption and disillusionment of Earth life. Since you are downloading that SELF into your physical form, you are also downloading your higher thoughts and emotions, as well as the vibrations of the higher dimensions. You are acting as a step-down-transformer that is slowly downloading and integrating the higher frequency of light into the third dimension. In this way, you are assisting, and participating in, the planetary ascension, download-by-download.
When you awake from your “sleep,” clothe your self with your SELF.
Through releasing the illusions of “Hardship” and “Sleep,” you have taken the fifth step toward BEING the living truth of your SELF in daily life and seeing through your Eyes of Soul.
Repeat this Mantra in your waking life to assist you in knowing the truth of your dreams and meditations.
The Illusion of Promise
With your Eyes of Soul, you find that you are already in the Circle. You see the loving face of Sister Venus as she removes another veil. “The veil that is lifted tonight is the Illusion of Promise. In your daily life, your family, friends and culture promise you many things. These promises are like carrots that hang suspended at the end of a long stick, unreachable no matter how far you travel. However, it is the reaching that is the prize.
“While in third dimensional consciousness, you require a goal, a promise of completion. You need to know what you are reaching for in order to make the effort of the reach. Therefore, you build an illusion that you are striving for this or for that. Now that you are raising your consciousness, you realize that your physical reality is first created within. Therefore, you can release the need for an outer promise, while you simultaneously reach within.”
Brother Mars then adds, “The ability to BE your SELF is the only promise from your SELF to your self. To achieve this goal you will need to release your need for physical reward or recognition, even though your ego/self may need those signs of success. On the other hand, your Multidimensional SELF is has no interest in your physical fame and fortune and wishes only to be fully united with its physical manifestation—YOU. To direct too much of your attention to achievement of Earthly rewards is to turn your attention away from the process of BEING your SELF.”
Apollo Sun continues, “Look at your Earthly rewards not as a goal, but as a symbol of the creative power of your Multidimensional SELF. Become detached from all the rewards of the third dimension. Then you will be free from the fear that they can be taken away. Remain centered in your promise to ground your Multidimensional SELF into the every day reality of your physical world so that you may assist in raising the frequency of Gaia. Then, each time a small, earthly promise comes into your consciousness, instantly measure that with the true promise of BEING your SELF. This comparison will show you that your physical world is the shadow of your Spirit. As Plato said, ‘Earth is the land of shadows.’ What appears to be true and important in your physical reality is merely a reflection of that which exists in your higher dimensional realities.
“Be courageous, my one, for to release the rewards of the third dimension while the vision of your SELF is still dim, can throw you into a state of fear that nothing on Earth is important. When you release this fear, you take a major step towards BEING your SELF.
“Your Soul/SELF cannot be clearly experienced while your desire-body is unclear. In order to clear your desire-body, release ALL desire, even your desire to BE your Soul/SELF. As long as you desire to BE your Soul, you are looking through your eyes of ego. When you look through your Eyes of Soul, you see that you have ALWAYS been your SELF. ”
Realize that you desire only what you think you don’t have.
The Illusion of Prosperity
You have kept your promise to your SELF that you return night after night, meditation after meditation, to release the illusions of you ego/self and BE your Soul/SELF in your daily life. The familiar Circle is around you, just as before, and you feel another veil being released as you listen to Sister Venus. “I now remove the veil of the Illusion of Prosperity. This illusion states that you must gather many things in order to be prosperous. Over time, these things become prosperity itself. Few people have an understanding of the true meaning of prosperity. Society dictates what you must do, or have, in order to be considered prosperous. Then you, a member of that society, build your own small illusions around that social illusion.
“The power of an illusion is dependent on how many believe it. Illusions are basically thought-forms set up in the Astral Plane that each person feeds with their own thoughts and feelings. The more people there are who believe in the same illusion, the more difficult it is to release it. Therefore, you may need to withdraw, either socially or psychically, from those around you who believe in this illusion. This withdrawal may set you onto a path of loneliness. Yet, loneliness is often necessary when you are making a great transition in your life. It is important that you relate intimately only with those who support you, while you remain aloof from those who feed your illusion. Breaking through illusion is a difficult process, and it is best to make it as easy as possible.”
Brother Mars takes the veil and adds, “In order to release a social illusion, such as prosperity, you may need to free yourself of many social pressures. For everyone who wishes to change, there are many who do not, as they feel afraid or threatened. Prosperity is what humanity has worked for and desired for ages, as it represents all the comforts that supposedly make life easier. Therefore, the main foundation of this illusion is that when you are prosperous, life is easier. It is easy to see why these simultaneous factors have been made into a cause and effect situation, because many who appear prosperous also appear to have an easier life. However, for each one with many possessions who appears to have an easy life, there is someone else who has few possessions who also appears to have an easy life. Therefore, the accumulation of possessions is not the guarantee of an easy life.
“Prosperity is a feeling which has nothing at all to do with the external world. The true energy field of prosperity is lovingly receptive and consciously welcoming. On the other hand, the illusion of prosperity is built upon an energy field that is reaching, and even grabbing, often in a random, non-discriminating manner. Hence, there can be an accumulation of a great many things that do not denote true prosperity, but instead, represent the social illusion of prosperity. True prosperity carries a very high vibratory rate, which draws in light and inspiration. This light and inspiration is the true meaning of prosperity. When you bring in the power and unconditional love of your SELF, you are truly prosperous.”
Apollo Sun releases the veil into flame and continues, “The prosperity of a society depends upon the cumulative feeling of all those who inhabit it. Since prosperity is a social illusion, it is difficult for one to work through it in an individual manner. Because of this, try to find the society within yourself to release this illusion. Inside your consciousness is another universe. Look into your inner universe to find your Sun. Then feel the outpouring of light and inspiration emanating from your inner Sun. Feel your inner prosperity as you receive this harvest. See how each planet of your inner Solar System receives the perfect amount of light without wanting more than it can use. Know that your inner Sun is eternal, and its resources are constant, perfect and continuous. Feel the satisfaction and security that comes with this knowledge.
“From the perspective of your inner Sun, find your inner Earth. Follow the flow of light from this Sun to your inner Earth. See how this loving light calms your earthly waters and clears your sky. Feel the warmth of your inner Sun’s loving presence, and observe how each member of your Earth is sharing, harvesting and working as one unit for the completion of planetary ascension. Know the prosperity of this inner purity of purpose.
“Hold this model in your heart and mind. Within your SELF is the universe of light that you yearn for in the outer world. Prosperity is of the heart. It is not a thing to be earned. Prosperity is a feeling to accept.”
Open your heart to the emanations of your inner Sun. BE that Sun throughout your day.
With the release of the illusions of “Promise” and “Prosperity,” you have allowed the light of your inner sun to guide you to the sixth step of BEING your SELF in your daily life and seeing through your Eyes of Soul.
Repeat this Mantra in your waking life to assist you in seeing your dreams and meditations through your Eyes of Soul.
