Clean-Out Those “Closets” To Make Way For The New!
Written by Master Hilarion and Esu “Jesus” Sananda
Distractions, distractions, distractions.
Isn’t it interesting that, just as soon as you think you have cleared the decks and have a bit of quiet time, along comes another distraction which needs to be dealt with “right away”.
We are your old friends, Master Hilarion and Esu “Jesus” Sananda, come in the Light of our Creator to spend some time with you. Settle, child, that we may help you with your current dilemma, as this is a challenge faced by many whose calling it is to bring Light to this troubled planet.
Why is it that all these things that pop up seem to carry an urgency with them? Do you realize that you spend most of your time “putting out fires”? And, they are generally fires that have been started by someone else, but in the end affect you directly, and you must deal with them.
We are not going to have a pity party; however, you wonder why you cannot quiet your mind, or why you cannot find that inner peace. Mostly it is because you have many outside sources continually distracting you.
And now, to put the frosting on the cake, so to speak, all sorts of issues from the past are rearing up, causing additional stress upon you. You have said so often recently that, if one more thing happens, you will scream. So why don’t you scream and at least release some of that pent-up energy that is weighing you down?
You MUST learn to take a stand with those who are so demanding upon your time and energy. Though it is a good thing that you are so willing to assist others with their problems, and do for others who need your help, remember that you are but one person, and have burdens of your own which must be handled.
It is your nature to help. It is your nature to be a caring and nurturing person. But you cannot “save” the whole world alone! There comes a time when you must have the courage and tenacity to simply say: “Enough is enough!”
Do you realize that you have been running in what we would call the “autopilot” mode? Your greatest challenge of late is to simply get through one more day, only to face another day in the same manner.
Is this living your life? Is this doing your chosen part in the Earth Transition mission? Is this what you came here to accomplish? Or—have you been distracted off your chosen path?
Being a responsible person does NOT mean that you must continually give away your energy to everyone else! Sometimes the kindest thing is to NOT help, and allow others to work things out for themselves.
By continually doing for others, you may be having the effect of short-changing them—in that they will not have those opportunities for their own personal growth. The greatest teacher is experience, and if they are not given the opportunity to work through things for themselves, they will not have the experience of learning to solve problems.
You need to examine closely how you came to have much of the knowledge that others admire and are so quick to take advantage of:
Did you not garner the wisdom experientially—BY DOING?
Did you gather some of it by being observant and learning from another’s example?
Did you always call upon someone else to solve your problems, or did you sit down and think each problem through and come to your own conclusions?
And in that problem-solving mode, did you not remember back and think how someone else might have handled the same situation—for better or worse?
It is very easy to slip into the do-it-yourself mode, because quite often that seems to be the most efficient way of dealing with the immediate situation. It also seems to you to be the “good Samaritan” thing to do.
However, you are also setting up a pattern: Now you have people calling you continually, wanting you to help them, or do it FOR them.
You must learn to let go of others’ burdens. You are wearing yourself out mentally, emotionally, and physically, and that is not really helping anyone.
Meanwhile, as you labor and stress to help everyone around you, there are keyed-in memories from the past that are creeping into your consciousness at this time. And they are doing so for a reason: their purpose is CLEANSING! It is time to clean-out those dark, dingy, stuffed-to-the-brim “closets” of sorts. You have spent a lifetime stuffing things into those closets, and they are bursting at the seams!
Remember the saying about putting new wine into old skins? That the old skin will taint the new wine? Well, you are on the brink of discovery of MANY new things, but first you must clean-out the old to make room for the new. The emotions of the past will taint the new experiences if you do not first clean-out the old.
The connection between your heart energy center and your conscious mind is misaligned. That is to say, you are constantly being led off purpose through “falling for” all the distractions that present to you. And the connection between your emotional energy center (the solar plexus) and the heart have a shorted connection. This is what makes it so difficult for you to resist the distractions—that is to say, to resist personally helping those around you with what really are THEIR challenges.
You have spent so much of your life stuffing your emotions into the solar plexus energy center and holding them there (so as not to “hurt” anyone’s feelings), when the healthiest thing would be to allow those emotions to flow upward, through the heart center for healing, through the throat chakra (energy center) to release them verbally, through the psychic energy center for insight, and out through the crown chakra (the spirit energy center), where that emotional energy can be transformed in such a way as to add, in a healthy (balanced) manner, to your total storehouse of experience.
You have no need to cling to all those emotions. Let them go!
Realize that YOUR feelings are as valid as anyone else’s, and there’s nothing wrong about what YOU feel. It’s how you DEAL with the feelings that is right or wrong (beneficial or detrimental).
By stuffing all those emotions in that “closet” and ignoring them, you are never releasing them. And emotions are energy—often very powerful energy! After all this time they have become stagnant and putrefied, as well as intensified. They have become outright toxic to your system (body, mind, and spirit), and you will not be able to achieve a full integration of your whole being while holding on to them. In a manner of speaking, different parts of you (body, mind, and spirit) are attempting to run in different directions right now, rather than moving (that is, being integrated) in the same direction of purpose.
Until you can achieve a full integration of body, mind, and spirit, you will continue to view your life as a struggle. Until you cleanse yourself of those old, stale energies, you will not effectively be able to move forward.
A truly balanced person is one who has fully recognized, acknowledged, and integrated all aspects of their being. Each aspect has its own part to play, and each is equally important to the overall health and well-being of the individual in your physical dimension. You cannot effectively function without such balance. So it is imperative—especially right now, as these emotions are caused to well-up from deep within you—that the whole being be cleansed.
The mind is a most powerful part of you, and has effects upon all parts of your being. Your greatest challenge is the ability to discern what you “hear” from what you think. Past programming is strong, and though you recognize truth from lies consciously, the old programming is stored in the unconscious and affects how you consciously discern.
Anything that tells you that you are not important, that you are a mistake, that you can’t do anything right, that everything you do comes out wrong—is a lie!
Anything that tells you that you do not deserve to rest, or that you have not earned your keep—is a lie!
Anything that tells you that you deserve to be “put down” or otherwise feel inferior—is a lie!
Anything that tells you that you are always wrong—is a lie!
Anything that tells you that if someone does not agree with you, then that person doesn’t like you—is a lie!
But—the old programming keeps replaying, and it is adding confusion within you.
Due to this early programming, you have spent so much energy in your life putting your Inner-Self (that is, your unique spark of Creator) down—confusing this valid Inner-Self with an unruly ego—that your Inner-Self has become like an emotionally injured child. It has little-to-no self-confidence or self-worth, which is why you are continually beating yourself up and denying yourself even the smallest of pleasures.
For goodness sake, if you want a bowl of ice cream in the middle of the day, allow yourself that pleasure once in a while! Wherein is the harm in it? When you are hungry, eat! Stop telling yourself that you haven’t earned your right to sit down and eat. The physical body needs nourishment! Why do you deny it same? That’s old programming again.
Growing up, you were programmed with the strict farmer mentality that says “those who don’t work, don’t eat”—even though there was always an abundance of food available. And, you were programmed to believe that having a snack (such as ice cream) is reserved only for reward of good behavior: “If you’re real good, we’ll have ice cream tonight.” But since the old programming is always telling you that you’re no good, you feel inescapable guilt about indulging in what you consider a special treat.
You have heard that “until you can love yourself, you cannot truly love another”. It is very true. You have fallen into the lie-trap that you are not worthy of being loved. If you’re not worthy to be loved, then you are not worthy to love another. This is the way your mind has confused things.
Now, there’s one more factor we need to bring into this picture: Because of your chosen Higher Purpose (that of a receiver of Lighted public messages), there is a very strong Dark-energy influence very near you. It follows you around like a “shadow”. It has gained an advantage over you in your weakened moments and has taken a very strong hold over you.
“Why?” you ask. Why, indeed!
You have been on the very brink of a great and wondrous breakthrough in your life journey. You were about to become an extremely powerful being, once again, as you were in a distant past lifetime.
The Dark energies are not playing nice! It is all-out war against the forces of Light, for if the Light should win this war (as most certainly shall be the case), the Dark forces will no longer have any foothold upon the Earth. And the Earth has been their playground for mischief for a VERY long time!
The Light always has been—and ever shall be—more powerful than Darkness. The Dark entities know that their time is extremely short, so they are working day and night to drag as many as they can down with them. If they can sway Lightworkers off their path and into the Darkness, it is considered to be a giant victory—sort of like bonus points. You Lightworkers are sort of their “special projects”.
Dark influences can be so subtle that you may not even notice them until they reach a point where such behavior is noticeable by others, or you reach a crisis point (say from drug or alcohol abuse). In the beginning, a Dark influence may just manifest itself as a little self-doubt, or a little short-term depression from time to time. Or you may experience a few nights of sleeplessness. Or you may experience others attacking you without provocation.
But then the pace and the intensity step up. You slip into a month or two of sleeplessness, depression follows on, loss of appetite hits, people seem to be mean and nasty to you all the time, you get disorganized, you become forgetful, you start making little errors here and there, then more and more.
Finally you are in such a state that you don’t even recognize who you are. You become full of self-doubt and begin to wonder just why you’re here in the first place. You may begin to feel that you are useless and that those around you might be better off without you in the picture, that you are a burden to them.
All of a sudden you step back and realize that something is seriously wrong. Is it physical? Are you losing your mind? You can’t seem to get anything accomplished; you’re always running behind, but you are so busy you don’t know how you’re going to handle all of it.
You try to sit down and get quiet and get centered, but you can’t. You pray, you meditate, you ask for Guidance, but you hear nothing. Then you become afraid that the Lighted Brotherhood has abandoned you. Then you think that there is no such thing as this Earth Transition mission. That there are no Lighted ones or Dark ones. It’s all a bunch of nonsense and has absolutely no bearing on REAL life.
You begin to believe that REAL life is work, bills, family, chores, responsibilities—and nothing more. You tell yourself to stop complaining and just accept the lot you have drawn because, after all, this is as good as it’s going to get.
And there you are! You are now just existing. Going from one day to the next, going through the motions. Not feeling, not caring, just plodding along, in hopes that one of these nights you’ll be able to sleep for more than 2 hours straight.
You experience digestive problems. No matter what you eat, it sticks in your throat, and then causes such excessive acid reflux that you think you’re about to die. You sit in your house, and only go out when it’s absolutely necessary. You don’t want to talk to anyone or see anyone.
You are now effectively immobilized, and there’s one more Lightworker who the Dark forces think they have disarmed. It’s a real victory to them!
The only way out is to RECOGNIZE what is happening and what the source is, and to make a CONSCIOUS effort to put an end to the interference. If it’s not halted, sooner or later you will manifest a serious, life-threatening condition.
[Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, it was less than two years from the date of this self-effacing writing, on July 14, 2003, that this beautiful, Lighted, relatively young channel lost a round of the ongoing battle to the Dark energies, through lung cancer, and transitioned from this world. Meanwhile, this humble receiver’s many outstanding public written contributions (since 1992) to the spiritual upliftment of those searching for Truth surpass any kind of mere human calculation of value, and stand as a constant annoyance to the Dark energies who thought they could snuff out this Light. Now this great soul is in a position to be of even MORE help to MANY at this time of such intense testing on planet Earth.]
To effectively deal with these Dark energies, you have to first RECOGNIZE them, and then FACE THEM WITH CONFIDENCE. They aren’t going to leave on their own! It is going to require YOU to take action and be vigilant and conscious of nearly every thought and feeling that goes through you.
Let’s take a bit of a break here, and we shall, if you are willing, pick this up later on. Stop worrying about vacuuming, and what’s going to be for supper. This is the most important thing that you can work on right at this present moment, for we have a door that has opened a bit, and we ask that you not get busied in other things right now. Leave that door cracked, for much Light can slip through the smallest of openings.
It is good that you have chosen to seek help. We are pleased and elated that you have finally come to the place where you are ready to tackle the issues.
You are needed. You are important. You are worthy. And you are much loved.
As always, we are with you in the Light of Creator Source, and we serve only the Highest Purpose of the Lighted Creator. Remember that when God looked upon His Creation, He was pleased, and called It a very good thing. He did not look upon anything as useless or junk! And neither should you.
We are Hilarion and Sananda. You honor us with your presence. We enjoy these times of communing with you. Peace be with you.
ESU “JESUS” SANANDA
This reproduction is from an actual photograph taken on June 1, 1961 in Chichen Itza, Yucatan, by one of thirty archaeologists working in the area at the time. Esu Sananda appeared in visible, tangible body and permitted his photograph to be taken.
Sit back and allow the words to flow. You need not be concerned, for I am right here with you, guiding you all the way. Yes, it is I, Esu “Jesus” Sananda, and with me is Master Hilarion. We, as always, come to you in service to the One Light of Creator Source, and we bring unto you the peace and healing that can only come from the Creator of all things. So, just relax, and you will do just fine.
You are not alone in your struggles, for there are SO MANY others who are experiencing similar difficulties, and each of you should know that there is reason for what is occurring in your lives. Those who have come into this planetary experience at this particular time are encountering the greatest of all cleansings—that of the emotions. Your emotional centers are where so much of your burdens are carried, and where so much of your turmoil resides.
There is a new, vibrant energy bathing your planet (and entire solar system) at this time that cannot share space with (and simply is not compatible with) the old, stagnant, low-frequency energy of suppressed emotions. If you are going to move up in frequency, into a state of embracing this new energy, you must cleanse your emotional energy centers. This is the very reason that many of you are revisiting old, especially “negative” emotions.
Most of these burdensome emotions are from a long-ago past, that you have even perhaps forgotten about—and suddenly, there they are, confronting you. Be aware that if you are experiencing these things, there is nothing wrong with you; conversely, there is much right with you, for you are readying yourself to embrace the new, higher-frequency energy!
If the old, low-frequency emotional energies are not cleared away, you run the risk of manifesting physical ailments within the physical body. Have you taken a look lately at the obituary columns in your newspapers? They are filled with men and women in their 40s and 50s who are dying from all sorts of ailments, most of which can be traced back to levels of stressful living that the body and mind were unable to cope with.
Stress is a killer, and most of you are living in extremely stressful situations, running on the treadmill of life as though you are in a race against something. It need not be so, for you see, in the long run, it matters not whether you had that high-level job, the fast and fancy cars, the big house in the “right” neighborhood, all the toys. IT WILL MATTER ONLY HOW YOU TREATED OTHERS AND YOURSELF.
People are allowing their perceptions of the expectations of others to dictate how they live their lives. You must ask yourself: Are you truly happy at a SOUL level, or are you just busy trying to “get ahead” and have more of what you think you are expected to achieve?
If you would, stop for a moment and ask yourself why you came into this life. What did you wish to accomplish this time around? Are you on that path, or have you been distracted by what you thought you were expected to do?
Working long hours all week, going to the gym to work on the “perfect body”, grabbing a bite to eat on the run, wanting just to get to the weekend, and even then continually busy, catching up on the laundry, mail, housecleaning, shopping, going out to dinner, seeing a movie, washing the car, running the kids to this activity and that activity—all this is a perfect recipe for physical, mental, and spiritual collapse. You may take an hour or so on Sunday morning to sit in a church pew, and you consider yourself taken care of spiritually.
“So, what is wrong with that kind of life?” you ask. “Everyone else is doing the same thing” you say. But if you get still for more than a minute, and ask yourself: “Is this really what I want? Is this really why I’m here?” Most of you would be amazed at the revelations you would get.
Ask yourself these:
What am I running from?
What am I really trying to find?
Why am I in such a hurry?
What have I truly accomplished?
All the money, all the material possessions you can gather, all the physical pleasures you can experience, are not going to fill that emptiness you know exists. Your spirit is crying out to you, but you are so busy running to and fro that you cannot even hear it. It is trying very hard to get your attention, but you keep ignoring it.
The perceived pleasures of the physical world are very enticing, and are everywhere you turn. But these pleasures are so short-lived that you continue to pursue more and more. Stop and ask yourself: “When is enough really enough?” And: “Have I achieved true happiness?”
So, is it any wonder that relatively young people, both men and women, are manifesting physical disorders that often take them out of your world?
There is so little time taken to enjoy the beauty of the night sky, or the wonder of a flower opening, petal by petal, or the miracle of planting a seed and watching as its first little shoot of green appears. It is amazing how much more perspective you can gain by just getting quiet and watching Nature, and viewing it as a little child would—full of awe and wonderment.
Many of you are so caught-up in your complex lives that you have no room for the simple things. If it’s not fast and “high-tech”, you have no time for it. If it’s not making more money for you, what is its worth?
I ask you this, however: When you leave this world, what will you be taking with you?
All that travels with you are your experiences and your memories. What experiences and memories are you packing for your journey? On the other side, there is no need for the high-tech toys, and you certainly can’t spend any money there for there is no need of such. So, why are you in such a hurry accumulating things and money?
Ah, yes, you must gather lots of things and money for your old age, your retirement, your golden years. You must have all this stuff and money to leave to your children—for what? So they can fight over it and repeat your lives?
After you leave this world, you will realize that all you were seeking, gathering, and accumulating was of no consequence whatsoever. And, at the pace some of you are going, you may never make it to those supposed “golden” years because you are rapidly destroying the physical body. Again I say to you to read the obituary columns in the newspapers. They may give you a new perspective.
We point these very fundamental matters out to you, not to scold, but to try to awaken you.
The Dark energies are exerting greater and greater influence upon your world at this time. The low-frequency emotional energies of greed and lust for more and more being pumped out into the aethers are giving these Dark energies even more power. And, to many of you, it looks as if the Dark side is winning this battle.
But I assure you that they are not! They are much more boisterous, and brag some, but the Light is much stronger than you can imagine. One little spark of Light is all it takes to create a blazing fire!
The time is critical, children. You are embarking upon a new journey, in a whole new level of energy. And if you are going to step into this new life, this new world, you MUST purge from your lives the old things that are weighing you down.
The world you are soon to encounter is most awesome, and will make your supposed technological wonders of today seem foolish and primitive by comparison. It will make the world you are now living in seem dark and foreign.
There is a bright new day just over the horizon, but you cannot take the old things into it. The two energies cannot share the same space. You MUST get in there and clean out the old stuff. Cast off old doubts. Throw away the old programming. Purge from you the old stagnant energy. You will have no need of these, and they will only hold you back and make your journey difficult.
Nearly every one of you has a sense that “something is coming”. You may not know what it is, but you know it’s “out there” somewhere.
Actually, that “something” is coming from WITHIN each one’s own spirit. It is trying to awaken you to prepare for the changes—for the new energy that is beginning to manifest upon your planet. The stirrings of dissatisfaction with your life are for the purpose of getting you out of your rut and getting you moving forward on a path more compatible with your Higher Self’s reasons for being here. These stirrings, in conjunction with promptings from your own personal Guides, are attempting to get you to recognize and understand that your world is about to change drastically.
And yes, in many ones this is causing fear—because, for most, change is a fearful thing. Not because you don’t enjoy a change, but because what you sense “around the corner” feels like a very big unknown. You are not certain what all that change is going to entail. You are not certain what it is going to mean to you, personally. You have many fears of losing “something”. And yes, much of the old ways will disappear, but only because you will genuinely embrace that which occurs, so it will not be perceived as loss—any more than you would consider it a loss to step out of old, ill-fitting shoes and into new, comfortable ones.
If you are one of those who are on that treadmill of frantic living, and you just don’t know why you are dissatisfied, step off and stop for a moment, and just watch and listen. While you are so busy running to catch up, or keep up, you will never know why you are “just not happy”.
Get quiet and, above all, GET HONEST WITH YOURSELF! Stop running and stop hiding from yourself, and you will get your answers. Seek the help of we of the Lighted Higher Realms, who stand ready to answer your heart’s longing to know. Realign your energy and your focus, and you will be able to see and understand. You will, at long last, find peace within.
But I give you fair warning: it shall change you forever! Yet I think you will like the change.
We have told you for several years now that your planet is being infused with a greater and greater intensity of Light. That infusion of Light is what you are all sensing. It is what is causing the questions and changes within each of you. It is also the cause of the heightened battle from the Dark energies, for the Light is weakening them.
But they are not going to leave without a struggle, and they are struggling right now to drag as many of you with them as possible. They are subtle and they are tricky, and unless you are on-guard against their tricks, they can influence you greatly and cause you much confusion and grief.
Learn your own weaknesses, for these are the places where the Dark energies will enter-in and gain a foothold. Self examination is the first place to start. Recognize where you are weak, and reinforce those areas. Put a shield of Light about them and work on them. Find out what is the source of any weakness and strengthen it. Call upon we of the Lighted Realms for help.
But also know your strengths. These are your weapons against the enemy. Don’t be shy about knowing what you are “good at”. Just as you have weaknesses, you also have strengths. Make good use of them; don’t squander your gifts.

Well, now, that wasn’t so bad, was it? Working together, we have been able to get through this writing without any problems, haven’t we? Take note that not once did your phone ring, and no one came to bother you. It’s all a matter of attitude, my child, and I must say that your attitude right now is better than it has been for a very long time.
Learn to love yourself. Learn to appreciate yourself. Take the time to be good to yourself and get to know yourself again. Life isn’t going to be perfect, but if you allow us to work with you, it won’t be so overwhelming, either. You have no need to continue beating on yourself. You have many talents and many strengths, and whether or not you believe it now, you are a mighty powerful individual! Choose not to be swayed by every little breeze that blows. Keep your eye on the goal, and you shall make it.
All that you have been going through will serve only to strengthen you further. It has also been an education for you that will come in handy in the near future. Others are going to want your help, and you will be able to draw from your experiences in order to truly help them.
What can we say but “Welcome back!” You know we never left your side. But you were in such a place of Darkness that you could not hear us. Yet we were always there. You may not be back fully, right now, but with time, love, and patience with yourself, you will get there again.
Understand that all those things of the past can only affect you if you give them power over you. It’s important that you examine each of them, but do not be attached to them, and then set them aside and move forward. There have been a lot of Dark days, but there are many more days of Light just ahead for you.
Remember that you cannot do it all, nor should you try. Allow others the opportunity to do their part, as well. It is as important for you to allow them their growth as it is for you to grow. It’s called balance.
Peace and love be with you. We are Hilarion and Esu “Jesus” Sananda, and we thank you deeply for taking the time to sit with us. As always, we leave you with the blessing of the Light of the Creator—The One Source—the only Source of All That Is. If you wish to call this God, then do so.Once more: Keep the Light about you, and the Darkness can have no foothold. Salu.
