This is an extremely important lesson and one of the basic principles we need to integrate into our being when we are on the path to spiritual enlightenment. It was not channelled through Menorah but a lecture she gave and she also read from a piece by Guy Pettit (New Zealand). The meditation after the lecture is very powerful.
A DEEP LESSON ON FORGIVENESS - 7.1.98
We are experiencing spiritual development. Many are awakening, lifting into higher energies and abilities where they are able to channel. Sometimes the channeling can be extremely good until there is eventually a burn-out. Those who channel from the astral plane are able to get into another’s aura which are the colours around the body, the lower astral emotions. Many are now working in the astral. They are able to help people by seeing into their histories. Some people do a good job and are sincere, but other people enjoy the power that they have over people.
There are not many who work on a level that is highly spiritual and there is a big difference. Each one of you have for years been going through pain, depression, wanting to give it up. Lots have not been able to keep up with it because they can't keep up with the strain of coming every week for years and doing the same thing and not seeing results.
We are working in a world of technology, proven knowledge. Everything has to go fast and be proven so that everyone can see the facts in order to know. We sit here year after year doing the same work. We read some of the messages from earlier years and it’s almost like reading the same messages. What does it all mean? Are we stuck? In a way - yes we are stuck - but we are living on an Earth that is totally stuck in the astral.
So many books written today are astral and it makes you wonder - is this really so? We have to be so discerning because there is so much glamour in what is written today. It’s exciting to read so much of these things, it gives body to it. It brings about the manifestation on the Earth that we can relate to with our minds and emotions. It is much easier than the work that we do - much easier than going through what we are going through. We have thoughts of : I don't want this. Nothing is happening to me. I'm not getting any follow-up from it. That person is going into healing and getting such good results!! Certainly, on the astral plane, there are great results. It doesn't mean anything. Read most of these books and ask yourself how far is it going?
The way we work, slowly, quietly, having to face all our own glamours that are within us, all our own depressions, lifting ourselves out of the emotional body, we learn to work on the highest levels. It is hard work! There are others working like us and sometimes we have the privilege of having people coming to us who are working in the correct way. That is a realprivilege to be able to work and meet with people who are actually working on the same level that we work.
Our work is different and, if we need help, we have each other to keep to that point of spirituality and there are also the guides helping us. Much of what goes on within us has to be gone through alone. It is a very lonely passage way, deep inside that we need to go through but we go through it.
There is a most important point that we need to touch upon and that we seem to neglect because we are so busy trying to get where we want to be. Where do we want to be? Since my sixtieth birthday, I have had this thought running through me all the time. What on Earth am I doing? What do I need it for? Why should I still be doing this? Why don’t I just give up and enjoy my life and let go? That idea has brought me to the feeling of simply letting go and I have let go. With letting go, I have found that there are no more restraints. I don’t have anything holding me to the side of me that was having the need for anything. I have freed myself from need to succeed, need to even have this place here. Before we opened and it started to become a reality, I started asking myself what on Earth do we need this for? I don't want it, why do I have to get strung up in this kind of responsibility? Then having the idea of letting go of all the restriction, I just allowed it to happen.
This is one thing that has not happened here. Everyone really wants this place to succeed and wants it to go, but we are holding on too tightly. We need to know that we are working on a certain level and nothing is going to stop the work done here, no matter how hard those forces that are there wanting to stop us. It is not going to happen because we, with our united effort, are working in harmony.
Because of the slowness of our work, we have established a tree - we are atree of life. The tree is upside down, the roots are in heaven (if you want to call it heaven), in the Creative Whole. We are the branches, and are very solid branches because we have worked so hard in this and other lives of ours, working through life after life to bring ourselves to this point of what we have here. Nothing will stop our work. The tree will grow and have new buds and new branches because we have our roots in the stars, in the Creative Whole, in the highest of the high - that is where our roots are. We need to hold onto that, to the understanding that this is where we are coming from and that it might be very hard for us to get through this. Our physical, the feelings, the emotions are always trying to test us. Besides that, there are those who wish to uproot the tree.
There are many forces who wish to take over the Earth - we have been told about this - and there are many who are working with these dark forces. They do not know it. This is part of the glamour of the astral plane. We need to watch this. We need to go into our own wisdom and allow ourselves to know what is true, what is right for us, for the group unity, in order to establish what we need to do towards bringing up a new generation, bringing new souls in peace and love.
There is something which needs to be understood in a much deeper way now and that is ... forgiveness. What do we think about forgiveness? It is not just saying sorry or may I be forgiven. Every time there is a need for forgiveness, the need is the forgiveness within me. For, whatever I establish outside, that needs forgiveness, is what I have within me that I need to release and let go. We simply cannot work in a total unit or, in fact, as a nation, as segments of a nation, or as a world, without beginning to understand what forgiveness truly is.
Menorah then proceeded to read from material of Dr. Guy Pettit:
“... Human beings are similar to a plowed field that is ready to be sown with seeds. We can appear reasonably healthy, yet we can be harboring the seeds of illness. Some of these seeds are physical - toxins from old infections, poor diet or environmental pollution. Some of these seeds are toxins of the heart and the mind, emotions and memories of experiences that were painful or disappointing to us, sub-conscious wishes to hurt ourselves or others, or, negative beliefs about ourselves or others, or of life itself.
The forgiveness process is needed to restore the flow of life energy and health, whenever there is pain, tension or disease. It is also needed to make sure that any such seeds of illness are removed quickly before they can grow. The basic weed is blocked love or blocked goodwill - lack of goodwill. A full definition of health could include: that you could use your physical body for creative service; that you can use your emotions as an instrument of sensitivity, to know when goodwill is needed in a situation and to express love and joy; and your mind you can use to create positive thoughts and plans and that there are no hidden seeds of disease in any of those areas.
Love, goodwill and life energy flow, are easily impaired by disappointed expectations or un-met demands resulting in negative thoughts, emotions, beliefs - then unhealthy sets in the body - the immune, the glandular, the respiratory, the reproductive, the digestive, alimentary, the muscular/skeletal, vascular, autonomic and voluntary nervous systems or the skin or, in relationships. The forgiveness process restores a state of love flow to ourselves, and for others and for life. It restores right human relationships and joy within our own selves and in our society. The forgiveness process has been used to assist improvements in life threatening and other diseases in many other forms.
One of the untruths is that forgiveness somehow allows the person forgiven to continue their harmful actions or condones what they do. Therefore I cannot forgive. The truth is, you can apply the forgiveness process, that is, you can cancel your demands that another person meets your demands and expectations as a condition for allowing love to flow through, and also take remedial action to stop or prevent harm or to confront injustices. Forgiveness, assertiveness and caring confrontation are very compatible. It is loving to the other person to do whatever is necessary to prevent them continuing upon a destructive path. As a forgiving person you can see that beneath the person’s attacking or destructive behavior is really a cry for love...”
(Dr. Guy Pettit - New Zealand).
In the work I do, using visualization technique with people, it is becoming more and more important. It is channeled through. With certain diseases it is an absolute must. The healing energy goes in and it works its way through. We know that the work goes to the deepest part of the human being, to the soul energy. But what is being done? What is the soul doing? The soul is here for a dual purpose because this is an Earth of duality.
The soul brings through individual energies, allowing that particular body to take on various energies in order to release, to build, to bring about a life that can be lived in whatever manner it needs to be lived on the Earth surface. At the same time, there are those souls who have definite tasks to do. All souls do have a task. Many have a task simply of helping that particular soul to release from something entered into it through all the other lives and, which needs to be released in the quickest way by being on the Earth. The duality on the Earth serves this function.
But there are those of us who have returned to the Earth in order to do work. The function is to release from all that is binding us to the duality. That is, release from the disease that brings us negative thinking and habits coming in from other lives. Having done that, we need to then use our energies, to bring in the soul work. We become that soul and we work through, reaching to the highest of our energies, becoming group, the higher soul and working from there to do the work that is needed upon the Earth. Then we work on releasing the Earth from its ancient karmic patterns. We work from that high point in order to release the nation to which we belong, from all the ancient habits that need to be released which are holding it back from its true purpose. Up until this point in time, the purpose has gone toward the understanding within the soul and the higher parts of the higher soul of what life upon the Earth actually is and what it can manifest in the creation of that part of life that has been sent to the Earth.
Some are still working on releasing a karma that is so deep and ancient within. Others are working and taking into themselves the karma of the Earth. We are seeing this with the pain and depression people encounter and a lot of you are working on both. You are taking in the pain of the land, of the Earth, of the nation and you are releasing. It is all very well to do this but doing it unconsciously doesn’t help very much. One has to becomeaware. When you are aware, you can become controlled. When you can become controlled you can really act. This means using the mind more than any other part of you. The mind needs to release into the forgiveness process, then you begin the process of forgiveness into becoming what you really are, in your highest part of you.
Remember, we come from a very great group soul - so great, even higher than a group soul. A group soul that has split itself, lived on other planets, and through us, living at this very time, parallel lives, feeding us some information and energies. At the same time, parts of us are living on other planets, feeding us the memories of the planets that we have come from. We have not all come from the same planet but that is part of the plan. For upon this Earth, being a very special planet, it has allowed itself to be used for very special growth into becoming a totally aware creative being. I talk not of an individual, I talk of the great being that is one, the higher part of the one. We all belong to that.
On this Earth, we are able to experience here, the divisions and the different energies. That is why we witness aggression within the self, within the whole - the deep aggression that is totally feeding into all and everything around. The history of the Earth on the Akashic Records shows great struggle but here and there, minds are coming through or being sent upon the Earth to try to feed the Earth with new and beautiful ideas or try to remind humans that in fact, all is one and they do not need to fear even though fear is a part of the Earth. It is a great lesson of what one needs to become through fear. But it has overtaken all.
So we witness now a very great and wonderful time because the Earth has moved out of its fear of karma. It is moving away from many of the laws that have held it up until now and you are witnessing now a true new beginning. You are witnessing it with the struggle that is within you to hold on and to receive these new energies, new ideas and new thoughts. It is not easy to release the old ones - much easier to live in the suffering and in the aggression and to talk in the manner that has been talked of for the millions of years of life upon this Earth. The Earth has been through its birthing. The Earth has been through its deep learning and slowly it is coming out of it.
You have come in order to help birth the Earth, for by taking on a body, you are part of the Earth. You have reached into the feelings and emotions of the Earth and the Earth has it all. The Earth has emotions and feeling, thought and all there is and you are part of it all.
Begin now to slowly understand how you need to truly allow yourselves to become one within your own being. Let the great healing Light pour into you. Become one with that healing Light and become one with the unit. Allow yourselves to go deep within. Try to reach to that part of you which is the most loving part of you, where you have truly managed to release all the aggression, all the fears, all the angers. Let go of it all. Feel that you, the individual are attached by many lines of energy to your parallel lives, to those parts of you that function on other planets, to those parts giving you so many talents, helping you with the healing work, with all the spiritual abilities that you own. For spiritual is merely the higher areas of experience. Allow yourselves to be deep in all this.
Allow yourselves to come to the very best qualities of love and light that are in you. If there are any conscious or unconscious ideas filtering into your mind that are blocking you from the total flow of love, allow these blockages now to be released in that love. Begin to feel the flow of energy, becoming a great healing energy flowing through every part and every cell, releasing you. Will it now to happen. Use your total mind. Will it to happen. Feel the healing energy pouring through you. Feel a great softness coming into you as you being to feel all other parts of you. Perhaps in some parallel worlds there is energy feeding in that needs to be released in love. For that part of you may be having a struggle on a parallel world. So ask the master healers to let the energy come through you. Will it to happen and with great love, release all that blocks any part of you, part of the parallel worlds, any part of the flow energies.
Begin to feel how you are gathering in all your energies from all worlds, from planets. As you slowly gather in, you are releasing, for you cannot do so, without releasing from all that blocks the flow of energy. The dynamic energetic flow of unconditional love, working its way through every part of your being - your being on this Earth, your being on parallel worlds. Feel your memories being released. All those memories of lives on this Earth and off this Earth have been there for you to understand, to learn - perhaps through suffering and pain. Therefore now, only let memories of love become part of you. As you release all other parts, your world becomes a world of love. Feel this world now spreading outwards, your energies spreading waves of loving, flowing energy to all life around you your families, your neighbours, your friends. You simply become a field of energy. You are a tiny vortex of light - pure unconditional love energy. You release all.
Now this goes on further as the unit. Feel the unit becoming the light-field - a flow of clear energy - joining in with this vortex of energy here. Flowing, becoming, being. Feel the flow of the energy giving you the force-field in this creation of light, the light of the group. Now let the healing energies pour through you and, as it does so, allow yourselves to truly forgive. Forgive all that was, in the understanding that it is a strength to forgive - not a weakness. Upon this Earth what is right and what is wrong is all part of the glamour play of the emotions. In actual fact, the only thing there is to forgive is the limiting thought fields within our own beings. Forgive then, your own individual being and let a great flow of energy pour through you as light and love and power pours in.
Feel the love flow pouring into you, a flow of energy that is constantly now releasing you, working out the blockages, changing you. Allow the energy stream to find that which is of the least resistance in your flow of energy. Use that. Find that thought within you that is the most loving thought that you have. Use that thought, use your will, your power, to bring that thought into your mind, into your heart, into your heart chakra and the heart chakra of the head and allow this to flow through the highest chakras that connect you to the great outer spheres. Feel a great release taking place as you become very strong in forgiving your own beings. In releasing, a great strength flows through you and you are healed. You are able now to work as one unit within the group. At the same time to use the strength to work as the individual outside the group. Be one with all that is. Feel now the great blessings of the Divine. Know who you are and slowly with this energy within you, having released you into total love, allow yourselves to return.
