Daily Inspiration: July 7. Lifting Ourselves to a Higher Level of Consciousness

The ideas of coincidence, chance and good or bad luck, are all fabrications of the ego. They are used by it to try to separate us from the understanding that each step along our path is sacred and has been co-designed with God. Each step along our path is here to help us recall and share with others who in truth we all are. What occurs during our day, we have consciously or unconsciously brought into our experience. We have done so to help awaken us to the truth within. In reality, each moment is one that we are presenting to each other. Gratitude, not judgment, is the appropriate response to such gifts. Imagine shifting your perception so that the present moment is appreciated instead of judged and condemned. Imagine being able to replace the moments that were once filled with thoughts of anger, resentment and revenge – with forgiveness, peace and gratitude. In doing so, how would your life, and the lives of those around you, begin to change? Imagine, if your life was experienced in this manner, would you not begin to see each moment as a gift from the Universe to you. Would this understanding and conscious shift in perception, not begin to raise you to a higher level of consciousness? God is Love and All, thus each and every experience is here for your good, and being used by God to help you heal and awaken. Trust this one thought as true, and begin to shift your mindset from one of feeling like a victim of the world you see, to one of being a conscious co-creator of it. If in any moment your response to it is gratitude, know that you are awakening to its true nature. When you understand the moment as the gift that it is, you stop asking “why” or “why me,” and respond to it with “Thank you”. Gratitude, as an expression of Love, is a sign of your trust in God. Peace of mind and joy, being Love’s expressions, both result from your trust in God.

What if, instead of going into the present moment in a typical ego style defense mode, we went into it with wonderment and a complete trust in God? What if, we went into it saying to ourselves: “What is occurring right now, in this very moment, is here as a gift from God to me. This very moment is here to help me reach and achieve, a higher level of consciousness.” We may also say to ourselves something like: “How can I, right now shift my perception so that I can experience this moment, not through the ego’s eyes of fear and scarcity, but through God’s eyes of love and abundance?” Today, let us recall that thanks to free will, it is we and we alone who have final say of how we interpret, react to, and participate in, the present moment. We will always reap what we sow. If we choose to participate in the present moment through the fear and scarcity mindset, then those will be the emotions that will color our experience. Equally so, if in that very same situation, we choose to see and participate in it with the energies of love and abundance as our guides, then those will be the energies that will color our experience. What else but gratitude could you have to God for the gift of free will? Free will invites you to experience your life, exactly as you think you need to. Do not concern yourself with comparing your growth to others. We all reach our destination at our appointed hour. When you choose not to judge your or others’ journeys, what you are really saying is: “God, I trust You with the way that I, and my brothers and sisters, choose to grow. I trust You, and in doing so, I find peace. It is this alignment with the state of peace, that will help awaken me to who I truly am, and what I am here to share.”

Today, let us make the conscious decision to start noticing how many times during the day we are given the opportunities to lift ourselves up to a higher level of consciousness. Little by little we will begin to notice how basically all experiences are, in one way or another, inviting us to awaken to our true nature. When we see this, gratitude will start to become our response to those moments, and to all those involved in those moments. As our understanding of the sacred nature of each and every moment grows, our gratitude towards our Source grows. Today, if another acts out in a manner that the ego has programmed you to judge, no longer accept this as a proper response to God’s child. Instead, stop and recall that you have traveled judgment’s dead end roads a hundred of times before. You already know that road does not lead you to your desired destination. Now, understanding that each moment is a gift from God to you, look for the gift in that moment. How can you use it to practice letting go of your programming, and return to being one with your all loving Source? Every time you decline the delusion and return to aligning with the truth in you, you help lift yourself and this world to a higher level of consciousness. Today, let us serve as an example to others, that achieving a higher level of self-awareness is always just a choice away. Today, let us in each moment become an example of who in truth we all can be. By simply becoming who we were created to be, we will provide a great service to humanity. We will help bring light back into darken minds. We will help bring a sense of peace back to those who have for so long, known only of the ego’s judgment fueled storms.  

Today, let us raise our level of consciousness by choosing to react to the moment with gratitude instead of judgment. Judgment of one sort or another, is always the ego’s programmed response to any situation. Judgment, is a sign that we are under the ego’s control. Judgment, is a sign that we are sleep walking through life. Judgment, is a sign that the ego, not us, is living our life for us. Gratitude, is a sign of our trust in God. Gratitude, reminds us that the journey we are now on is one that we have co-designed with God. The response of gratitude helps bring peace to our minds and joy to our hearts. The response of gratitude, by lifting our level of consciousness, helps us become a brighter light. It is by becoming a brighter light that we can show others how they too can align with, become and represent, the light in them. The light in them is who they came here to be and share. Being at one with the light in us, the love that we are, in each moment, is a sign of one who has reach a higher level of consciousness, and thus a clearer union with his or her Creator.

I am currently brought to my knees walking away from a 14 year relationship, losing a job and walking out of a life that is no longer serving me.
All my fears and ego are activated / and while I know it is here to teach me and raise me – I have been consumed in the fear and anger. Only recognizing the peace that will come very distantly –
I know to be grateful for all of this right now and yet I was forgetting to say thank you.
It’s already shifting the way my head and my heart and my soul feel. It is helping me to remember that I do indeed co create in this world!
Thank you!

Thank you MD for your comment and for being open to the message.

When a thought of fear or anger tries to enter our mind’s gate, remember that those thoughts can either grow and become a bigger part of your life, or they can through forgiveness be released, let go and become a smaller part of your life.

If you dedicate your time, focus and energy to those thoughts, they grow and become a bigger and more important part of you life. If you forgive them and hand those thoughts over to The Light, Love, God, they will begin to dissolve from your life.

Let us be grateful, that after all is said and done, thanks to free will, the amount of pain and suffering we do, is up to us to decide.

When a thought of anger of fear come in – don’t put yourself down for this, instead use them as trigger mechanisms, as opportunities to practice increasing your trust in God and increasing your abilities to forgive. For the more you practice forgiveness, the more natural it will become to forgive and thus to find peace. The more you practice trusting God and thus aligning yourself with the Mind of God, the more worthy you will feel of being One with your Loving Source.

Imagine, all anger and fear based thoughts and those people involve with those thoughts are doing, is helping you practice trusting God more, getting better at forgiving self and others, and thus finding peace sooner. Understanding that this is in truth all those thoughts and people are offering you, should your response to them be judgment or gratitude?

When a fear or anger thought pops in, thank these thoughts for helping you practice taking back control of your own mind and thus of your own life.

Make the conscious choice to align with The Mind of God and offer these thoughts the opposite of what the ego would. When the ego calls for anger, offer compassion, when it demands fear, offer love and understanding.

You, as God’s child are forever worthy of His Love, peace of mind and joy, and we are all One, thus offer what you desire to experience, offer all of God’s gifts to all who the ego would condemn, and begin to live the Heaven on Earth that you are worthy of living.

Always remember, that above all God loves you, and that your peace of mind and joy, are forever just a thought and choice away.

Peace. JBC
