Messages from The Council of 12 -- April 2008: Your Place in the World

Messages from The Council of 12
Transmitted through Selacia -- April 2008
You may be asking yourself, in today's chaotic environment, how you fit in with your world and what your role is to be during humanity's great shift into higher consciousness. You have many opportunities for growth and being of service in these uncertain times, yet you perhaps question how to identify and use them.
Sometimes, when you focus on the magnitude of change underway, you may even wonder if you are fully equipped to take on the challenge. There is so much that needs changing. Where do you start?
And, very importantly, how do you keep your sanity and be personally empowered as you serve as a Divine Changemaker?

Lastly, what does it really look like to be a potent force for positive change in these times? When you walk the Earth in this transformational role, what are the outward signs of manifestation? What are some of the hallmarks of the new paradigm approaches to work and living one's purpose? Where are the like-minded souls you are meant to befriend, learn from, and serve?
These questions and more are addressed here.
Background on These Unique Times
The following is some background on these unique times. To be alive now offers unprecedented opportunities to evolve and change your path of destiny. In no other historical period could you advance so much in a single life. In reality, "advancement," involves clearing away the layers of falseness and forgetting of your natural Divine nature. While that is easier to conceptualize than to "do," you indeed can succeed. You can learn to live as soul, and to integrate spirit into your everyday reality. After all, this is your natural mode of being.
The potential you have in this life to transcend massive amounts of negative karma is profound. You make choices daily, knowingly or unknowingly, that can help you to create positive karma and to transcend negative karma. As you uplift your consciousness with inner work and outer actions, you help yourself in ways that are beyond human linear measure. In addition, your higher vibrational consciousness impacts your loved ones, strangers you meet on the street, and even the global mass consciousness.
Seeds for the massive planetary shifting now underway, including those you personally planted in previous incarnations, are sprouting at lightning speed! Because of this, you are now witness to the most revolutionary shifting humanity has ever undertaken.
Right now, you are in a process of being awakened to the truly dysfunctional state of your world, and the need to change the outmoded status quo. This is happening in phases, your own Higher Self bringing to your attention untruths and awareness about timeless and multidimensional approaches to reality.
Connecting More of the Dots
If you have been on this path for a while, you are now able to connect more of the dots of the bigger picture, having an understanding of humanity's history and age-old patterns involving ego-based power and control. If you are one of these more seasoned travelers, you are no stranger to many of the universal truths now featured in best-selling books and on internet sites.
Some of these ideas, voiced in earlier historical cycles, were relegated to specialized interest niches. The masses didn't hear about them. The fact that these "secrets" are now revealed in a more mainstream way is a sign of humanity's great shift in progress. Each day, somewhere in the world, more people wake up to be your companions in the most exciting journey you could ever take!
More Like-minded Souls
As more people awaken, and the ones already on the path of Light advance even more on their transformational journey, you will find increasing numbers of like-minded souls to work and play with! Some of them will seem to come out of the woodwork, and you will wonder where they were before. They may wonder the same about you! As this happens, simply move into gratitude and a knowing that Divine perfect timing has been and is at work.
Pay attention to your dreams, as the Higher Self of some people may visit you this way in "introduction." These people could become your teachers, life guides, friends, or even romantic soul mate partners. Nowadays, with increasing use of the internet, pay attention to how you are nudged to connect with someone you notice on a website, an email, or a communication forwarded to your "in-box" by a friend.
When in a public place such as a health food store or a seminar, set your intention to be in a receptive state to meeting appropriate new people. You may want to ask your Higher Self to give you a gentle nudge if someone shows up who you could benefit from knowing. Be open to all possibilities, including the idea that some people may enter your life as a healer to help you transform and as part of that, you may also develop a friendship.
Realizing You Can't do it Alone
When you embrace the need to radically transform yourself and the way that life is lived, it doesn't take long to realize you can't do it alone. While it may appear that you are single-handedly working on a personal issue, you don't do so in an energetic bubble. You impact others around you, and you are impacted by a diverse set of people including those you will never meet in person.
You are also affected by planetary energies, and when this impact feels negative, you will naturally seek the comfort that comes from knowing others are in the same boat. Sometimes you receive this reassurance directly from a friend or loved one. Other times, you receive it indirectly by reading something or seeing a movie. The more that you pay attention to the subtle messages of spirit in your life, the more you will notice receiving validations from seemingly random sources. An example is when you are standing in line at the grocery store and overhear a conversation that speaks to what you have been feeling.
When you acknowledge your interconnections with the world, and allow them to fuel your transformation, you place yourself on the fast track of personal growth. The paradigm shift begins inside of you, yet it requires your engagement with the world. When you interact with others, they can show you truths about yourself that you could not easily uncover on your own.
You can think of it as the world being your feedback system, giving you clues about how to move through challenges with more ease. It's more than learning from others' mistakes. Sometimes, as you observe another person mired in a dilemma, they haven't yet made the mistake you can clearly see is in the making. On other occasions, when you observe someone else's dysfunctional relationship, it may be easier to identify your own hang-ups.
Sparking Beneficial Changes in Others
Another benefit of connecting with others is that when you do, you can spark beneficial changes in their lives. Oftentimes this happens without your conscious awareness. When you spark a beneficial change in someone else, there is a domino effect, with numerous people being positively impacted over time.
That includes yourself, of course, since beneficial energies you express in the world will return to you as a positive force at some future time. Therefore, regularly connecting with others is essential to your role as a Divine Changemaker.
Changing yourself is a personal matter and done from the inside out, and yet it is not accomplished alone. You require assistance, not because you are inherently lacking, but because of your limiting human conditioning.
In general, regardless of how advanced you are, it can be challenging to see clearly into all aspects of your issues. You will benefit from working with a skilled and competent person outside your close circle of friends and family. It could be a healer or someone with another job description.
Why is this helpful? You are simply too close to the issue at hand, and you have a vested interest in the outcome. Being impartial, then, is problematic. You may be a very skilled healer and able to work on yourself, yet your most troublesome issues can be difficult to access alone. For the same reason, it can be challenging to heal your own loved one, even when you know them better than anyone else.
The Impact of Human Conditioning
What is the limiting conditioning humans have had? Key elements include personal disempowerment, disconnection from spirit, and an isolationist view of reality.
You have forgotten just how powerful you truly are! You are a natural creator, for example, yet you have learned to place outside authorities in charge. You have learned to fear change and chaos, yet these elements are a natural part of creating anything new.
You have been conditioned to doubt yourself and to feel insufficient, resulting in a lowered self esteem and general disempowerment.
You lack a fusion of your physical reality with the force of spirit. Through countless experiences, you learned to separate physical reality from spirit. In doing so, you lost your "home base" that could naturally be with you anywhere, in any reality. That navigation tool became covered with dust and in the "off" mode for long periods of time.
You have forgotten the interrelated connectedness of your world. Even though you hold within your DNA concepts of connectedness, you also carry polar opposite concepts of separation. These false notions of disconnection have been continually challenged in the last century with the introduction of innovations like space travel, the internet, real-time world media coverage, and increased routine movement of people and goods across country borders.
You have amnesia about your past lives, forgetting their painful lessons as well as the amazing abilities you mastered in other times and places.
You have learned to think of yourself, once grown, as independent of your family. As part of this, you haven't learned to associate your challenges and dysfunctional patterns with your family's lineage going back numerous generations.
Transcending Your Conditioning
Once you acknowledge your conditioning, you have more power to transcend it. It's also helpful to remember that your brothers and sisters on the path of Light have had much of the same conditioning in their human evolutionary cycle. Remembering this can help you to feel less alone on your journey, while also helping you to generate compassion for yourself and others. Being mindful of humanity's similar conditioning can also help you to become more accepting of your circumstances, including difficult situations involving other people.
The more that you can express compassion and acceptance for what "is," the higher your energy vibration will be. When you stop going to war about what "is" and move into acceptance, you free up a tremendous force of creative and healing energy.
When you broadcast, from your energy field, the qualities of compassion and acceptance, you will draw to yourself an increasing number of positive experiences. As an example, when you express compassion, you are more likely to receive compassionate treatment in the world. Also, when you are compassionate, people are more likely to be magnetized to you.
Accelerating Your Transformation
When you learn to let go of feeling that you are either better than others, or more handicapped than others, you can greatly accelerate your spiritual transformation.
Why? First, you will be more open to receiving insights that come directly or indirectly from your interactions with others. Second, you will begin to see yourself more clearly once you drop the judgments and comparisons.
Third, you will be more willing to reach out to others for assistance. Fourth, this willing and receptive attitude can connect you with more like-minded souls. Fifth, you will be more receptive to the guidance and other help that others can give you. Sixth, when you are counseled to consider a change in course, you will be more likely to give the suggestion serious thought, and if appropriate, take action on it.
To be personally empowered, you must have the ability to move beyond your resistance, beyond your arrogance, and into a state of willingness. When you are willing, rather than willful, you have the openness required to catalyze true and lasting changes.
This openness will help you with both your own personal transformation but also in being a potent force for good in the world. Regardless of the type of work that you do, the consciousness that you personally bring to the work is a pivotal factor in how much beneficial impact you can have during the paradigm shift.
Identifying Arrogance
How do you identify arrogance? You can think of it as a mindset that says "I am better than others." The opposite of being humble, the person expressing arrogance is prideful and self-important. When being arrogant, the person is ego-driven and often has a condescending manner.
At the root of arrogance is a lack of self-love. If a person loved themselves fully, without condition, they would have no need to show that they were important or better than others. However, since few people have fully realized their self-love potential, arrogance will show up in varying degrees from time to time.
Examples of things a person might say with arrogance include:
"I'm only on the planet to help others."
"Isn't it amazing how messed up everyone is?"
"Notice how stupid he is."
Discovering Your Unique Niche
It's normal that you would want to know how you fit into the world and how you can be of the most service in birthing humanity's higher consciousness. Each person has a unique role to play.
To discover your unique niche involves an ongoing process of becoming the most aware and awake human you can possibly be. It means regular inner work to clear personal issues that you might not have faced in a typical lifetime. As you know, there is nothing typical about being alive today!
Each time you grow more spiritually and increase your vibration to hold more Light, you avail yourself of new and expanded opportunities to serve. Being of service, after all, regardless of what that service looks like, is how you can do your part in creating humanity's great shift.
Being of service relates to work you are paid for as well as helpful actions you take without payment. Your unique niche relates more to your personal energetic signature than to any job title.
No one else has had the same current life experiences and past incarnations that you have. No one else made these experiences mean what yours have meant to you, nor has anyone else responded to what happened in the same way. Because of your own individual path, and what you have witnessed and learned, you carry an energetic resonance all your own. If you could connect with this resonance from the higher dimensions, it would have a unique sound.
Your unique signature involves key qualities and abilities you have developed over time. Some people, for example, have had numerous lifetimes devoted to the arts. Perhaps they had talent as a musician, sculptor, painter, writer, or designer.
Even if you have no awareness of your past lives, if you have worked in the arts during this life, you likely have some abilities associated with success in the arts.
An artist often is called to develop and utilize qualities involving such things as: imagination, curiosity, creativity, focus, observation, patience, tenacity, decisiveness, intuition, commitment, and good work habits.
The same qualities and abilities an artist hones on a personal level are also needed in the world. Someone out there can benefit from them. In fact, there is sure to be great demand for those who are skilled in using their intuitive right brain while also being able to observe and focus the mind to make intelligent decisions. These types of skills are an asset in countless types of work environments.
Making This Life Count
Regardless of your age and circumstance, you can make your life count. What does this mean?
You can make your life count by being present and awake to the many opportunities you are given to personally advance and help your planet evolve into higher consciousness. Be aware of these and act on them.
In order to notice more of these windows of opportunity as they arise, become mindful of just how precious this particular lifetime really is. On some days, when you are mired in mundane routines, it may be difficult to view life as precious. However, especially on those days, do your best to focus on the bigger picture of why you chose to incarnate at this auspicious time.
Remind yourself of how living right now can greatly accelerate your enlightenment process. Enlightenment is not for a select few, but is your natural state. This state can be yours at some time in your human evolutionary process - why not utilize the potency of being alive now to help yourself realize it?
Be grateful that you chose to be on Earth now, and to be an integral part of humanity's great shift. If you can generate gratitude within you in sufficient amounts, you will find less to complain about. Your more positive mindset will become a magnet for even more to be grateful for.
When you have questions of how to best contribute, start where you are.
Young Adult-If you are a young adult, know that you don't have the rigid roadmap for life's success that your parents did. Be glad of that. Rigidity, in all of its forms, must fall away in the new world you and others are helping to create. There is no single way to contribute, no single path to career success, no single worldly anchor to reply upon. To be sure, you most likely will have more than one type of job in your life, and sometimes it will be you who creates a brand new type of position, company, or industry. Realize that you are not what you do for a living. Your job is like a coat you put on for a while. It may fit you very well, but it is not "you." When you are working in a job that doesn't seem to fit, remember that you are always in a place for a reason. If you feel dissatisfied with the job, connect with your intuitively guided reason to determine why. For example, you could be there to work for a boss who triggers your pattern of perfectionism. If that is the main reason, and you clear your pattern with inner work, it may be easy for you to move on to another more suitable job. Keep in mind that any job, in any field, can be connected to your path of spirit. You can bring your Light to any environment, and you can learn how to more fully express your Light by being in a number of diverse situations over time.
Mid-Life-For people in mid-life, to make this life count you will need to be willing to continually update your world view and your skills. The pace of changes on the planet is now more rapid than seen by any previous generation. No one could have prepared you for this. You are required, much more than your parents were, to continually adjust to everything from new technologies to radically different methods of communicating and working. Almost as soon as you begin to figure out one novel device, something else very different takes its place and you must adapt to that. If you work for a living, you must keep current with the market in your field of expertise, sometimes learning an entirely new set of skills. These skills include being up-to-date about how people in your field communicate and find work. You cannot afford to stick your head in the sand, refusing to learn these new ways. If you do, you may find yourself unemployed or underemployed. The other element in your adaptation process is the challenge of bridging your outer world activities with your spiritual unfolding. Your DNA is changing as you rid yourself of old patterns, hold increasing amounts of Light, and raise your vibration through higher vibrational thoughts and actions. Staying grounded and focused is essential as you become more multidimensional and access the higher frequencies. After all, the whole purpose of becoming multidimensional while on Earth is to bring the higher spiritual energies into the human experience. To do that, you must be in your body and fully participate.
Retired or Elderly-If you have retired or are elderly, to make this life count you will need to stay interested in your own personal growth, other people, and living in the outside world. Be as fully engaged with life as you can, for as long as you can. Refuse to accept old paradigm views of age and aging. Know that you have something to contribute, even if it's simply the wisdom you have gained from living life in the best way you could. People in your inner circle, and even strangers you see in public, can benefit from this wisdom if you will only share it. Trust that if you are still alive, there remains something for you to learn as well as something for you to share with the world. You can continue to evolve and to grow spiritually until your very last breath. On the days when you feel you are "finished" with Earth's lessons, remind yourself of how beneficial even one more day is when you learn to love more deeply and less conditionally. Invite those opportunities into your life. Welcome them with gratitude, and use the gift they provide for your advancement as a soul.
As you continue the journey of rediscovering your Divine nature, we surround you with our love and blessings. We are The Council of 12.
