Session

Opening

Prayer: Divine Parents, we invite you to join in this circle, this forum at this time with us to bring your love and to add it to ours in this circle and to join us in the gratitude of the moment for coming together in spirit and for perusing you, our Divine Parents as we wish to grow and learn in this process of spiritual exploration. We invite you in by word at this time but we recognize that you are never far from us, always with us. We really seek to increase our awareness of this truth and come to you in a fuller awareness as we desire to approach you, as we desire to be more like you, our Divine Parents. We are sure that you will assist us in this process like any parent desires to assist the child and so we rely on this truth, this principle in action, this principle of love displayed even here and now. Thank you so much for this opportunity and for your willingness to participate with us so willingly and openly in this process. I now invite any celestial personality who is monitoring the situation and would like to access this forum an opportunity to do so. I have no preconceptions or direction in mind whatsoever so I turn it over to spirit who knows what is most appropriate and would bring that to us. I petition we receive that gift of grace at this time. Thank you Divine Parents, thank you.

Charles: Hello and greetings to this group, I am Charles here accepting the invitation so graciously offered to join in. You cannot, I think, truly appreciate the significance of such a gesture, such a demonstration of willingness to open up this forum, to open up your hearts, to open up a space within you that will accommodate spiritual presence, indeed a space in which you will meet spirit presence partway for without such an abode, without such a space provided, there is very limited opportunity for this co-mingling of spirit to occur.

Lesson

Spirit

As you well know, the influence of spirit is a passive and recessive phenomenon. It is not an overpowering trait, it is not a dominant force, it is not shouting or screaming, it is rather whispering or gently reassuring and reaffirming and so in order to hear this gentle voice, to perceive even this whisper, one needs to be in a place conducive to do so, in an environment which would promote the ability to reach out and establish this connection. As you well know, the distractions of mortal life in these times are great and it is quite possible that one could live an entire existence so bombarded and surrounded by external stimuli that there is no place provided for the stillness, no place provided to promote the aspect of yourself, the spirit component of your being to have a playground of its own, a place to be, a place of safety and sanctuary where you can explore this spiritual aspect of self and simply be in spirit so that others, even such as myself at this moment, may come and enter this space that you have provided and share with you what it is to be in spirit.

Practice

The many demands that you have on your lives certainly demand your attention and your focus. This is as it should be but to those who are growing in spirit and have the ears of spirit, there is more and more a desire to facilitate this aspect of yourself as well. You have all learned quite well how to balance these external demands upon you and to live your life in accordance with the demands made upon you, the expectations present around you and the available energies you have to devote to these.

So it takes an act of diligence, an act of devotion, an act of faith, to take time away from these demands and bring yourself into a place where you can be free of the demands of environment and focus on the potentials of spirit. I applaud your efforts at doing so whenever they can be manifested. If it is only a few moment here and there, then It will be a positive and good thing. If it is your showing up at times like this, then this helps to recharge your spiritual batteries and build a pathway to spirit. If you continue to repeat this activity over and over, this pathway becomes very secure and you are able to utilize it quickly and if this bridge is made and this pathway developed, you find you can access spirit by simply reflecting on the bridge of the path and in so doing you are rather instantly transported into the state of spirit.

This is much like developing the neural net pathways in the brain. At first it take some effort and consideration to make these connections almost by force, to learn the facts out there and assemble them in the brain. But through repetition and diligence in this process, you find that these answers which you have stored are readily available and that there is no great effort required to recall your multiplication tables for instance, or the alphabet. Those are so firmly embedded in your person, so familiar to you, that you can instantly draw on them.

Likewise, your repetition and your practicing of coming to a spiritual state, brings you this same sense of security in that the sense becomes embedded in you, it permeates your being, it is part of you and it is easily accessed at a moments notice. This is the value of repetition and practice when attempting to develop this spiritual network, this spiritual pathway. So all these years you have heard about the importance of stillness and going into this place of spirit, over and over again; it does not suffice to do it one day and consider that it lasts forever. It is directly contingent upon your application and intention, your practice and your persistence.

So, like any musician who learns to play an instrument and master musical compositions, or any actor who learns their lines and then it becomes second nature, you as spiritual comrades are becoming well versed and quite familiar in accessing the bridge, even you might say, the portal to spirit. I appreciate the efforts you make at providing this forum and this portal so that we may use it back and forth. I sense that there are questions to be asked this evening. I would solicit those questions at this time. Would there be any takers at this time?

Dialogue

Signs

Question: Good evening Charles, this is *****. [Good evening] I really appreciate this opportunity to partake in this spiritual connection with you this evening. My questions regards what is called, time prompting. This is the only means I have at this time to sense that I have some message for me in some way. Maybe somebody is saying hello through numbers. I would like to verify whether this is actually happening. This is pretty much an everyday occurrence and I would like to have a better understanding of what is actually going on here if possible.

Charles: Very good, thank you for your question. The phenomenon that you refer to, being prompted by numbers, is most definitely a tool that is used by spiritual personalities to get your attention if you will. It is also used as an affirmation to let you know that you are connected, that there is something going on between you and this spiritual domain. This is accomplished in many many ways. Many different avenues are utilized to contact individuals to simply establish this connection. In a way, this is meant to bolster your faith; it is as a result of your faith, not there to bring you faith as much as to affirm the faith that you have.

It is quite common for individuals entering into this spiritual paradigm to be wholly unfamiliar with the terrain, if you will, the conditions inherent in accessing spirit. So, the forces at play will make every attempt to be gentle with you and the use of time prompts, number prompts, has become a popular method to begin to bring you to a greater desire to explore spirit. When this happens initially, it may be dismissed as coincidence but as you will witness, the number of repeated instances brings one to a consideration of what might be going on, thus this question. And so, you can rely on the fact that there are those out there in the spiritual domain which are attempting to bridge this gap with you and your noticing and your attention to this phenomenon begins to open this door.

Receptivity

So let's consider for a moment, if this is true and you have realized it for yourself, then one is in a position to ask themselves, what could be done further for me to facilitate such contact? After all, the availability of number prompts is a relatively small phenomenon, so what could one do to facilitate even greater contact? These are the promptings which are designed to foster such questions within. My suggestion to one who has observed these in their lives, would be to more earnestly apply a devoted time to receiving more, receiving additional contact. This can be done in a variety of ways.

Journaling

Perhaps the most effective is to provide for yourself the opportunity for a dialog by the use of journaling. It is highly recommended, when you feel inspired, when you see these prompts, when you have an internal desire to explore further in the spiritual domain, that you allow yourself the privacy and the freedom alone to take and enter the space first as we just did here this evening. Create the arena where you are willing to receive spiritual input. After having created the space, take out your pen and write down the longings of your heart, the questions you may have, the desires that you would like to know more, the statements of your intention, the portrayal of your purpose and let these flow from your heart straight out without any concerns for editing or sentence structure or composition. Rather let them flow freely just as words coming forth.

Then having done this, you are in a position to receive the answer to your question. You are ready to receive back from spirit because you have just engaged in spirit, you have put forth your intention and the final step required after having made the space and directed your intention is to receive that which is available to you. And this too, you write as if it's your highest self within answering your concerns and questions and coming through fast and certain. Don't worry about what you are writing, rather let it flow.

This is one technique which is very serviceable for opening up another neural net pathway to spirit from your side. This is something you can create, this is something you build by engaging in it, by practicing it, and by doing it. There are other methods of course, innumerable methods as there are innumerable seekers out there but a method such as this or one similar to this will provide you the space to receive, to not only transmit your intentions and questions and concerns and curiosities to the universe, but also to receive, to stop, to be in stillness so that you may hear the whisperings, the gentle tones of spirit as they come through.

You have been told all prayers are answered and it is quite literally true that the universe awaits your engagement, it awaits your response. If you will follow these simple steps and actuate these simple principles, then most certainly you will have greater access to that which you are seeking. All things transpire in due time but any student of any discipline has ultimate control over the speed at which a discipline is mastered. So while you are destined to become fully spiritualized beings, and it is part of your very composition, you have great amounts of control that you can bring to bear as you develop your skills along the way and therefore the mastery of this skill as well. I hope this serves to inspire you in your pursuits.

Attainment

Question: Absolutely, I really appreciate your insight, definitely it is encouraging and so I will follow through with it. If I may, I have one final question. Is there any correlation with the prompting phenomenon and the achieved spiritual circle from the seven circles? Is there any correlation between any particular level and this phenomenon just appearing in the life of any particular individual?

Charles: Thank you for this question. Let me say, that all things are interrelated. There are no things which stand apart and separate from other things. So in this way, most certainly all things are part of the whole and act together in unison at any one time. Again, I will refer to the fact that there are universe principles which dominate your ascension career and which will be adhered to completely and strictly as they are the rules of the game so to speak. But there are also the players in the game and within the parameters of these rules you see a wide variety of players. Some excel and some falter and so there is a definite matrix in which you operate but there is also great latitude for personal growth and attainment in the spiritual realm.

And so you are provided with these opportunities before you but it is, in the final analysis, up to you to access these potentials and to manifest these principles as you become familiar with them and as they become manifest through you. So I encourage you all to seek your own level of attainment because [to] those who apply themselves, all forces of the universe are brought to bear and in that sense you are not limited. However, we all operate under a particular paradigm and there are certainly parameters under which we all must function. But don't let the normal or typical expectations stymie your desires or at all cause you to falter in your attempts because each one is granted permission to grow at their own rate and utilize the many opportunities that are present in the spiritual domain to accomplish this growth.

I hope this suffices to address your concern.

Comment: Absolutely, thank you for the wisdom that you have shared with us tonight.

Action

Charles: Thank you for bringing your questions to the forum. One of the reasons that I requested the opportunity for dialog in this evening's encounter is to bring forth and reinforce the idea that what we do here in spirit is not a passive phenomenon. You are not simply spectators off in the background somewhere. In order for this to be fruitful, it is done sincerely and personally and individually by each and every one. I am fully aware that this format has been developed and has been quite serviceable over this time to bring forth teacher messages and that there is much gained in this process of consideration of these messages.

However, the time for sitting back as an observer is eclipsing into the time of direct action of the individual. No longer can you rely on others to write the books or bring the lessons. As we move forward in this process of spiritual exploration, it will be required of each and every one that they embrace for themselves the lessons and messages and not just to the level where they are familiar with them, they have heard them, but to that level we discussed before of having been mastered, of being readily available at a moments notice to you because it is part of you; it has become an aspect of your being.

And so, in order to facilitate this, I brought forward the suggestion for questions to put the ball back in your court as it were, and hopefully to instigate a new sense within you that you are indeed players on the field, not observers on the sideline. I hope this message finds some resonance with all who are on the call this evening. If there are no further questions then I would relinquish this forum to other celestials who are in observance and would like the opportunity to access this mode that has been developed. Thank you for your attention, it has been my pleasure. I now withdraw to allow for others, farewell.

Energy, Circuits

LIght: Greetings, I am LIght. It is my pleasure to accept this invitation offered and to bring with me some practical exercise that we may engage in, even at this time together, which is suitable to be utilized repeatedly so that if you are seeking some direction on how to direct your intentions and how to fulfill your purpose, this might be a good fit for you.

You may have heard that there are great changes afoot, there are the opening up of many circuits in addition to this one which has been enjoyed for some time by a great many and you all well know, as has been referred to, that all things are connected, that there is an enormous force over and around all which has been referred to as the energy grid and you all have been referred to as light anchors. There is a very practical necessary thing that you can do as individuals to add your energy into this overall field, this circuit, this grid that surrounds and encompasses all.

Now, the thing about an energy field that encompasses all is that every single individual within such a field is bound to it in some way, that is, no one operates outside of this field. It must be encountered, it must be navigated, it must be utilized by all who are within the field. This being the case, you can imagine how important it is that this field that surrounds all be one which is conducive to promote spiritual growth, to bring divine qualities. If this is properly in place, all the players inside this field of energy are playing off of divine qualities, goodness, truth and beauty, and therefore the experience of all those involved is flavored by these characteristics or traits.

Now you can also imagine, as a result of being a human of the realm, that there are other things contained in this energy field as not all of life reflects truth, beauty, and goodness. There are many negative components, the fear, doubts, uncertainties, hatred, which are as well out there by virtue of the fact that they have been experienced by humans. As a human, you contribute to this energy grid as well as you draw from it, in fact it actually sustains your life. It is the pool from which you draw the sustenance of your life and so as such, just like if this pool were a spring, it needs to be kept clean and pure so that when you go to draw your sustenance from it you are drawing good, healthy, nourishing sustenance.

Healing

Any spring can tolerate some minor amounts of contaminants but no spring can provide adequate sustenance if it is too polluted. This is where you come in. You are powerful creative beings, you are children of Divine Beings and as such you have creative powers. You nourish this energy field around you with your thoughts, your intentions, your desires. You feed that energy grid around you every moment that you exist. You also draw your sustenance, your strength, your courage, or your fears, your doubts, your trepidation's; all these are contained in this field.

It is now requested of those children of light, of those light anchors such as yourselves, that you more actively devote yourself to cleaning this wellspring and purifying this energy field with intention and purpose. As Charles mentioned in the very beginning, you cannot fully appreciate the magnitude of directing your intention towards spirit and spiritual pursuits. Likewise, you cannot properly appreciate the contribution that you make when you direct your intention towards the cleaning and maintenance of this energy field, the taking out of elements which are unhealthful and replacing them with elements which are good, true, and beautiful.

This represents the inner desire of your being to help in such a way, to offer such a contribution to the whole, to be a part of such a grand project by the simple act of your desire to do so and your focused intention. That is all that is required for you to have a significant contribution, one that cannot be made by anyone else in all of time and space. You are in a position to make your unique contribution of goodness to the field. You are in a unique position to determine what aspects, even within yourself, you need to downplay to help the overall status of the energy field.

If you notice that you are grappling with great doubts, understand that these are part of what you are navigating in the greater energy field. They are within your own internal energy field as well and by deciding that you will choose them not, then you deny them the very essence to exist. If you do not acknowledge and condone activities, they simply cease to exist. If thoughts are troubling to you, it is not required that you devote any energy to thinking them. In this way you can create great change both internally and to the whole field of energy. It begins personally with your contributing that which is good, that which is true and beautiful, that which the highest aspect of your being would like to see as suitable to offer this divine and holy energy field. It also begins with you realizing those aspects of self and of the collective which are not wholesome, which do not bear up under the light of truth, or goodness, or beauty.

It is simple to rearrange this pattern by simply endorsing one and forsaking the other. It is not a big struggle that one must be overthrown and wrestled into submission, rather it is the simple act of choosing, one over the other. As light beings and as light anchors, I invite you to join with me now, in this moment, to come together with intention and purpose to seed this energy field that surrounds us with your highest and best aspirations for mankind, for the divine aspect, and donate this to the Supreme. Donate this to the collective, donate this to your brothers and sisters by virtue of donating it to the collective consciousness of all. It is truly that simple and that profound.

Divine Parents, please accept the offering we make here today, now. Please take from us our highest aspirations, our highest vision of goodness, truth, and beauty that we can offer. Take our experience of these aspects of truth and beauty and goodness and use it as the seeds, as the pattern which can be utilized in the greater grid. Let this be our gift of intention, let this be our purpose in this moment. Accept from us, that we desire to be active in this process at this time and help us to make it so. We will bring our faith, our conviction, our desire, and you may take those energies and administer them wherever you see fit. Thank you for the opportunity to work together, thank you for the grace that allows us to know that we are a part of this plan, that we are participants, not just observers in all that transpires before us. Help us to be more and more aware that this is so.

Closing

Thank you my friends for the opportunity to share some directed intention. It has been my pleasure. Now I sense there has been much to take in and digest so I would bid you all a good evening and a good day and send with you my blessings for a greater awareness of the role and part that you play. It is so very significant and as of now, you must take this on faith. I assure you one day you will see the significance of your role in the greater context. For now, we must operate in faith and with our internal conviction that this is so. Let it be so even now. Thank you and good evening.
