Take Time To Consult Your Higher Self’s “To-Do List”
Good afternoon, and blessings to you, my friend and scribe, for bringing through this message. Many are searching for the deeper truths that feed the hungry, and heal the hurting, soul. These ones recognize and greatly appreciate the confirmations of “the still, small voice within” which we of the Higher Realms offer as general messages through this publication conduit in response to your thoughts and prayers.
I am the Ascended Teacher known as Hilarion, Master of the Fifth Ray, the Emerald Ray of Healing. While that is my chosen focus at this time in my own evolution as a unique spark of Creator’s Desire (just like are you), I come within the balanced White Light that is Creator’s Will, for the upliftment of all who I may assist through these words.
Many are called, but few answer that call amidst the pressures and distractions of day-to-day living in your modern world. As we have so often pointed out, the Dark Energies who work in alignment with the Great Deceiver are masters of distraction. Besieging most of you ones experiencing on schoolroom Earth, these Dark Energies draw from a nearly endless “bag of tricks” to keep you running in circles—sometimes literally.
While your life may seem full and busy from the point of view of your “day-planner” books, I am here referring to the view from the perspective of the spiritual growth objectives that your Higher Self (the Soul You) set out for you to accomplish in your journey in the Earth schoolroom environment.
This is why we have, so many times in these messages, recommended strongly that you take some time EACH DAY to be quiet and listen within. Otherwise you can proceed through an entire “busy and seemingly full” lifetime, only to do what so many do: transition, arrive at the “other side”, and while reviewing the life you just departed from, marvel at how you got so far off track from what you originally intended to do in that life.
In many ways it’s a lot like the jokes some wives tell of sending their husbands shopping for them. The husbands were sent, with a list, for some essentials at the grocery store. But on the way they got distracted by the “Big Sale!” sign at the hardware store, and came home with a new lawnmower blade and doorbell button—but completely forgot about the essentials they were supposed to get at the grocery, having never looked at the list in their pocket.
Perhaps those hardware items are likewise useful to have at some point, but a little bit of time spent consulting the list in the pocket would have made for a far more rewarding overall shopping trip in terms of accomplishing the goal of what was really needed at that time.
My scribe was first exposed to the “busy-ness” distraction phenomena many years ago after moving from a small and quiet locale to one populated with a lot of “successful professionals” of great fame and outward (material) accomplishment. It astonished my scribe to regularly observe (with some amusement and even more uncharitable disgust) these busy ones racing out their driveways to, say, a “save the whales” meeting—while in the process nearly running over their elderly neighbor who they never took the time to speak with, and yet who would have dearly loved the company of a neighborly visit now and then.
(And as my scribe came to find out, because of taking the time to be neighborly, the elderly lady turned out to be an endless and colorful source of the history of that illustrious neighborhood wherein, for example, two young college guys, working out of the garage next door, in the 1930s, started building electrical equipment in an enterprise that later grew into a very famous modern corporation.)
One of the biggest distraction tricks used by the Dark Energies on you more “metaphysically aware” ones is the justification (excuse) of having “endless time” from the soul’s point of view. The quiet whisperings in your ear go like this: If you don’t get something accomplished now, in this life, you can always “get it right” at a later time, since the soul’s time is infinite.
Because that statement is quite true (as far as it goes), it makes the perfect hook for the Dark Tricksters to use to pull you off your path. And most people fall for it every time—especially when your Higher Self’s “to-do” list contains tough challenges that you (the physical you) would rather not deal with.
In point of fact, a great deal of the need for Healing (my department) on your planet is due to you ones employing a wide array of “half-truths” as subtle excuses to justify avoiding the important matters impinging upon your life, meanwhile filling up that “day-planner” book with so much grandly justified busy-ness that you run out of pages.
What then gradually happens is that a kind of internal “tension” begins to build within you in direct proportion to how far “off course” you are from the direction your Higher Self intended for this life. That “tension” in turn is at the root of precipitating many (if not most or all) physical and mental ailments. Remember that your renowned psychic Edgar Cayce always referred to illness as dis-ease—and for very good reason!
One of “our” teachers who is on your Earth plane at this time has a very popular television program helping people to heal from residual traumas associated with the death of loved ones. At least once every program this teacher will remind both the studio audience and the vast television viewing audience how important it is to interact with loved ones while they’re still alive, rather than running to a medium to “bridge the gap” once the loved ones have passed on.
You see, dear ones, it’s true that your journey of the soul exists within an infinite span of time. But consider, then: Why do ones feel so bad inside when certain “terminal” events occur? Why do ones often feel the nagging effects of missed opportunities and a weight of regret on their backs? And why do these feelings sometimes run so deep that they produce long-term mental problems like depression or other incapacitating trauma?
Because, dear ones, your heart mind recognizes—and appreciates more fully than you do consciously—the exquisite interplay at many levels that draws opportunities (gifts of growth) to you in the first place. The fact that “all is connected” implies a level of profound interaction well beyond the appreciation of the conscious mind, but not the heart mind. Thus, on a much more profound plateau, the heart mind sees “missed” opportunities of soul growth in the same way as your conscious mind sees the missed errands of the shopping trip.
The “tensions” develop and accumulate when you make yourself so busy (superficially distracted) that you neglect to pull the “to-do list” from your Higher Self out of your pocket—to remind yourself what it is you (the Soul You) truly desire to accomplish NOW, in THIS life, in relation to other people and events also a part of your experiential time-frame.
You are experiencing in a time when great healing is possible. Your Higher Self chose for you to be where you are at this time, knowing that these healing conditions would exist, along with coordinated challenges, as a tremendous opportunity environment for soul growth. It would thus be wise to take the time and make the effort to recognize and eliminate what may be mere busy clutter in your daily lives. And in so doing, you will find that you move into a healing state of greater heart-satisfaction and inner peace.
Remember that you are NEVER alone, and the call for help will ALWAYS receive an answer from we of the Higher Realms. Be attentive and open to whatever response(s) you may receive, and you will be well on your way to a healthy life. Keep in mind that a productive life means neither crawling into a cave of isolation and fear, nor going bonkers in a whirlwind of chaos. A little time spent each day in contemplation of your purpose can make all the difference between filling your life with food for the soul or cluttering your days with distractions you later regret.
I am Master Hilarion. I leave you now in the Great Healing Light of Creator. May you each regularly go within to consult your “to-do list” and KNOW it points the way to not only personal healing, but by extension, also to the healing of your entire world!
