Each New Year brings new challenges and new opportunities to grow spiritually upon our path toward mastership. Raphael says this is our main purpose for our souls incarnating into our physical “vehicle of expression.”
(Raphael’s words will always be shown in italics in these blogs. I can never write anything without hearing his words of wisdom in my mind and heart, as you can see below).
Dear Soul, You are divine energy designed by God, the Source of all that is, to become a master creator within physical dimensions. Think of God as the Mind of a Master Creator and yourself as an apprentice learning the art of manifesting matter. Each time your soul enters a physical vehicle, it is given ample opportunities for resolving conflicts, rising above anger and frustration, and using your human emotions to bring forth happy experiences.
Of course, when we use negative emotions, we create unhappy experiences. And yet, as long as we live on Earth, we will always experience the pull of the polarities. It is a planet of opposites.
The soul has to experience the entire spectrum of opposites before it can learn to bring balance into physical life. Each soul begins its apprenticeship like a child learning to walk. It may fall many times before it discovers balance within the law of cause and effect. Each thought when teamed with an emotion can bring forth an experience in the physical. When a person focuses joyfully on what it desires to manifest, it will be given many abstract ideas and suggestions from guides as to how to make it a reality. The secret to manifesting your desires comes with the wisdom to let go of the fear and doubt you can do it. When you joyously visualize how you will feel when your desires become reality, and still let go of exactly how you want that experience to look, you allow your guides and angels to bring it forth for your inspection. Even then, if it is not exactly as you imagined it, you will be given more opportunities to reshape it and create anew.
It makes me think of Play-Dough and how we can mold a figure, but if we don’t like it, we can push it into another shape. The Lego rage sweeping the country allows kids to create anything their imagination can whip up. They can use the already “real” figures to make up stories and games. In my day we didn’t have such realistic representations of people, animals, houses, etc. I used little glass animals to represent people and dominoes to divide rooms in a shoebox for a house! I do believe it built my imagination to be as creative as I am.
The imagination is the key to manifesting. Some think they need to give up the imagination when they become an adult. On the contrary, it is through visualizing how the idea can be made, plus excitedly searching for a means to create what one “sees” that brings those abstract ideas into a physical reality.
I guess that was what Jesus meant when he said that unless we become as little children, we could not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. And then he added that the Kingdom of Heaven was within us! So, stir up your imagination and watch what happens! Take a look at my Art Page displaying my mosaics and hand-hooked rugs, and you will see how playful I have become. I’m like a little kid when I’m making something just for fun. Some of my mosaics will be for sale–to make room for more creative ideas to flow. When my granddaughter discovered my art studio, she gleefully set about making Christmas gifts for her family.
May the New Year bring you all kinds of exciting new ideas for you to manifest and enjoy in this physical world. And may your soul rejoice in a creative, prosperous, and abundant 2014.
