2006-12-31-Nathaniel, Looking Back, Going Forward
Topic: Nathaniel, Looking Back Going Forward
Group: Andover TeaM
We began with stillness, then toning and linking to the light anchor. Together we created the group merkaba and participated in effective prayer. It was New Year’s Eve, so we asked for personal progress reviews and guidance for going forward into the New Year.
Nathaniel: This is Nathaniel. I would greet you in this the last day of your calendar year.
It is as your teachers have previously encouraged you (as) a good thing to look back at your progress, to make observations of your near past by way of receiving encouragement and hope for what lies ahead. It is meant as a stepping stone on to the next as you evaluate your progress. Looking back only one short year, you can see what you have accomplished, how far you have come, what has changed and what yet remains the same. By taking this step, you learn to appreciate and lend value to taking small steps, small increments of growth. You also see that there have been times of larger leaps that feel quite different than the smaller increments. These are all an expected part of progression on your ascension path. It is as it should be. You have times of relatively rapid growth balanced by times of settling in with the lessons learned until they become part of you. Then you take some steps again and allow them time to absorb.
Each one of you has made great personal progress in your choices and decisions and the actions you have take to fulfill those choices. Simply your presence here tonight with uncertain travel conditions and ill health at the moment… you have made the choice to be here together in spite of all this. Would you have made the same choice only a few months ago? Perhaps not. Perhaps it would have been easier to let those become excuses not to come together. Tonight you have chosen not to let them be obstacles. This is how in your progression growth, you overcome those things that others might allow to slow or stop them, or deter them from their path.
JoAnn, your choosing to begin to meet with this group has been a decision of far-reaching proportions for which you are barely beginning to see the benefits. I encourage you to continue on this path.
Richard, you have been instrumental in nudging JoAnn along to make this decision. You ought to be commended for this. You can be rather persuasive. Now, temporarily, you take a different path. (Ed. note: Richard will be gone for some weeks.) Know that your physical presence will be missed in this group, that your presence will also be felt in this group as each time they gather and remember and think of you and feel your energy here. You can project it so that you can feel the group’s energy as well from where you are. This merely augments the lessons you have been receiving. Now you can put them into practice.
Randy, your progress has been on many levels in the past year, as you are well aware. Physical enhancement, mental acuity, the TR’ing process, receiving personal guidance, all of these things have added to your repertoire. Quite amazing when you look back at it, is it not?
So for this one, (Leoma), the TR, the progress she sees may not be so obvious to her. Yet her desire to align with God’s will has grown more deeply and becomes greater in potential as she progresses. She is reluctant yet to fully embrace the powers she knows she possesses. The power of faith, the power of action, to co-create what it is she desires to co-create with God. So this is what she has to look forward to, to further connect and act on these ideals to join with courage and selflessness, to step out into the unknown, to be a bridge between what is seen and what is unseen.
This is in part what each one of you has to look forward to, to become more of who you are created to be, to embrace your individuality, to honor your personal gifts, your personality itself. Your personality is a unique, one-of-a-kind gift. Yet while there may be things you would like to have different about yourself, you can turn all of these that you believe are undesirables into good action in the world. You can make things like stubbornness work for you. Energy around anger you can turn into energy for action to create something good in your surroundings.
Each of you has unique talents and abilities that I would encourage you to bring forward, to be more willing this coming year to allow your strengths to come forward to be shared with one another within the group and in your daily walk. Allow these potentials to come forward, to be nurtured, to expand within you that which you are created to be, a unique and loved blessing of personality and action in the physical world.
It is our great privilege and delight to be observant of your desires, to be allowed to help you nurture your potentials, to be invited to be present with you, to share our energies. You make our day, so to speak. It is why we are here. It is what we hope for, what we wait for. So few have thus far taken up the call. We have much to offer you and cannot until invited, until you ask. It takes a certain level of awareness to even know that you can ask or what to ask for. Then the trickiest part is to be open to receive what you have asked for, for it is always available, just waiting for the asking and the opening.
As you close the cover on the passing year, turn your thoughts toward a brand new slate, pause in this moment of between-ness to feel yourself poised and balanced between the past and the future, for it is only in the present that you can act and be.
My greetings to you once again, my friends. Now Serena has a gift of energy for you all. Remain only in a state of receptivity. [Long pause as we accepted Serena’s gift for us.]
