Why do we sometimes find it difficult to make choices that we know are in our best interest? Why is it challenging to take 100% responsibility for ourselves? In a recent channeling Archangel Jophiel and Lumina, Elohim of the Second Ray, had something to share that may help us answer these questions. They came to address and alleviate the anxieties the group was feeling about what may be to come. The suggestion was to Rest in P.E.A.C.E.; not the RIP used when referring to the deceased! But rest in, take comfort in, the fact that we are Phenomenal, Eternal And Creative Entities (P.E.A.C.E).
Much of our anxiety arises from the amount of time we choose to focus on our phenomenal self: the physical being having a 3D experience and thinking from the small (or phenomenal) mind. But we are also eternal and we can bring more of that Eternal Self into our phenomenal being, which acts as the temporary home for the Eternal, or Temple of the Living God.
Being a Creative Entity, we have all that we need at our disposal. We can create from the phenomenal or the eternal. When we create with the power of the Eternal Self, it is effortless; things seem to fall into place and synchronicities happen that reveal to us the magic with which we have always been imbued. It is true creativity when the Eternal Self flows through us unobstructed and unhindered, into our phenomenal world.
Lumina spoke of the true purpose of human emotion. Many of us, in fact most of us, were never exposed to constructive ways to move through and process emotion. Emotions are frequencies; it is the phenomenal mind that likes to categorize as good or bad, positive or negative. But each emotion, if we commit to staying present with it, leads us to our Eternal Self and the re-cognition that what we are seeking is found within. If we ignore and suppress emotions, they cannot be used as they were designed: as a map that guides us back to the deepest Divine part of ourselves.
When we make poor choices, or fail to take responsibility for ourselves, you can be sure we are operating solely from the phenomenal part of our being. It is empowering to know that we are more than just a phenomenal being and that we have built in tools (emotions) that will align us with this truth. When we feel empowered, our anxieties are abated.
As always, we hope immersing yourself in this issue of E.P.I.C., will align your phenomenal self with your Eternal, Creative Self. So dear readers, rest in P.E.A.C.E.
