Do you crave spiritual enlightenment but feel attaining enlightenment is an impossible endeavor? The following article offers some hope by explaining the 6 steps to enlightenment and ascension.
So this is the bit you really want from me… the cliff notes edition on how to attain enlightenment and ascension yourself. Here’s the caveat…
This will NOT be easy. This will involve many ego deaths, and those ego deaths are one of the most important parts of the journey. You will lose attachments – to people, relationships, things. Attachments you have will be taken from you, like relationships ending and facing bankruptcy.
Once you’ve crossed the threshold you will understand why – so accept it as part of the journey and do not become disheartened. Everything you give up, every challenge you face is preparing you for the upper levels – and you will be grateful for all of them when you get there. I promise you that.
The 6 Steps To Enlightenment
Here are the 6 steps to enlightenment:
1st Step To Enlightenment – Mirrors of Relationship
When I first started downloading and compiling the Mirrors process, I knew I had something special. It allowed me to shatter through layers of beliefs and brought everything into one focus. I could start seeing the big picture.
Over a relatively short period of time, the questions became part of my being and the time to shift something became shorter and shorter until I was basically doing it in the moment of the experience itself.
Mirrors are a self-perpetuating process and the questions become self-evident over time. Use mirrors daily for a few months – set aside time and make it a habit!
When I started using mirrors I had a lot of layers to go through and I used to mirror stuff out on a whiteboard for days on end – I’ve literally filled thousands of whiteboards. It was faster growth than I ever could have achieved with someone else – especially when I really started learning to get brutally honest with myself.
2nd Step To Enlightenment – Handing over to the Holy Spirit
Handing over to the Holy Spirit is something I carry on about and on about lol. But with good reason. When you hand over to the Holy Spirit, amazing things start happening for you.
What do I mean by handing over… Holy Spirit, please take this ego identification of the thought of…. (pain, sadness, lack, anxiety, separation).
In the beginning, you’ll have guilt about how much you are handing over, and then you’ll realize there’s no limit – you’re meant to be handing over every second. In fact, the only way to serve God is to hand over to him every second, using your free will to hand over everything – your thoughts, words, actions, deeds, feelings, sensations, you name it.
Eventually, you’re going to get to a point where you are remembering to pray all the time – and that’s where you want to be.
3rd Step To Enlightenment – Praying for Faith & Trust
Praying for faith and trust was something that happened very naturally and organically to me… I just started asking the Holy Spirit to show me how to have more faith, live a life of faith, and show what faith is.
Praying for me changed dramatically at that point, and it had a lot to do with the “ego mitigation” – I wasn’t interested in the worldly and secular stuff anymore, so I wasn’t asking for stuff for myself. Surprisingly I had guilt about not asking for money when I knew I needed it… an interesting barrier for me at that time. I think I was becoming aware that we have to create everything we want – even stuff like money.
There was a payoff here – I was given tests where I was asked to trust myself. This had a lot to do with ego mitigation too. Ego emotions and responses are fear, doubt, anger, resistance, vulnerability, shame, embarrassment, humiliation, competition, possessiveness, envy, jealousy… you get the picture.
The thing that was stopping me from trusting the Source…? DOUBT of the messages, SHAME and HUMILIATION and EMBARRASSMENT that I might be wrong, RESISTANCE to my own abilities, and the fact that God would trust me, COMPETITION and ENVY of the talents of others, and DOUBT that I was as good as them.
It came to a head when I had the following lesson: I was doing a distance reading for someone, and the messaging I was getting did not fit with what her life looked like. So I went softer on my feedback, AFRAID I was wrong, and not wanting to face the SHAME of being wrong.
We got into an exchange by email afterward, and with a bit more digging I found out that actually, the info I was getting was completely right – and this was playing out in that relationship already.
I made a very conscious choice at that point to trust what comes from inside me before any ego response. Even when I have to face the discomfort of an ego response, I chose to trust beyond that from that point. What I didn’t expect was how big a lesson on external validation this was… and here’s the thing about external validation: you have to let go of it to progress on your journey. But why?
As you grow, you become aware of a few things – there are very few people around you on your level, people can’t always see what you see, and they’re limited by their paradigm blindness (the things they don’t know or have experience of).
What this means for your journey is that if you are externally validated, you will only ever rise to the level of the people around you. In order to go all the way through, you have to be satisfied that you know where you’re going – even when the people around you cannot see it or you, or how much you’ve grown.
What none of us really ever considered is how lonely and alone this path we’ve chosen is – the reason so many become hermits is because you realize stuff like no one can ever share your experience and you will always be alone really – that’s what individuation means. The lack of need for external validation also makes you withdraw from life because you no longer need the mirrors that people offer – and you have none left to offer them.
That’s what a God or Ascended Master is really – someone with no mirrors. That’s why people see us so disparately: we only ever reflect what they are – they only see themselves in us.
4th Step To Enlightenment – Ego
Ego Mitigation & Ego Deaths…. we’ve spoken a lot about mirrors above, and mirrors are your shortcut to ego mitigation. The rest really will unfold as you go along, you’ll see.
Your job is to learn how to NOT take stuff personally. You’re looking for the point where you realize that you do NOT matter, you CAN NOT and will NOT ever make a difference, and you really add NO value to anything or anyone. You’re temporary and of no consequence.
The reasons for this are so manifold that I can’t even begin to list them…. suffice to say that you cannot judge, have preconceived ideas, or take offense at the things you will see, hear and experience once you cross the threshold. And I want you to cross that threshold – the Gods do too.
You will never be able to see the big plan if you are worried about stuff like the mortal lives of a few individuals, or losing the ‘business’ and ‘credibility’ you’ve built… they take the stuff like relationships and assets and money away so that you don’t have attachments, and it’s easier for you to leave it behind.
There are those amongst us that are going onto something MUCH bigger than this life – really Earth life and humanity were just the proving ground, the first test. This is not the completion of the journey, nor is death, for any of us that ascend. Earth is the ONLY stepping stone for many.
If you’re thinking this has beaten you down and broken you if the challenges you’re facing on earth are too much, then you will be too tired and broken by the end, and you won’t have the strength and energy to continue on.
When you let yourself take things personally, you allow yourself to become beaten down and beaten up – that’s what being the victim does to you. You have to let go of all the importance of you and your life so that you can see the more that there is…. the stuff you’ve been yearning for.
Ego mitigation is crucial to this journey, and the ego deaths you face will be hard. Be prepared for that – take it in your stride. Know that it’s part of the journey, even if it lasts years. Mine lasted years and I’m so grateful for every single second of it.
Every challenge you face and every energy you release takes you closer to home, closer to where you want to be. Welcome the challenges and grow your strength. You will need ALL that strength and mental focus once you break through.
5th Step To Enlightenment – The Morphic or Holographic Field
When I first read Power vs. Force nearly 15 years ago, I knew I had found something special but it didn’t resonate yet. I didn’t completely understand the implications of it.
I remembered the book though and went back and reread it a few times over the years, and when I reread it last year, stuff REALLY started falling into place.
Understanding the morphic field is like giving your journey steroids… everything happens in the field. Every day I unpack more and more info and understanding about the field and how it shapes our lives, how karma fits into it, how souls have coalesced, what it means to be an empath and so much more.
6th Step To Enlightenment – Conspiracy Stuff & The Big Picture
Conspiracy stuff is one of those interesting conversations, that always cause offense, upset, and controversy. Here’s what I know now… you have to look at ALL of it.
From flat earth to cloning to medical advances, from Cern to reptilians and even the Satanic rituals performed at Bohemian Grove – it ALL has relevance. And in ways, you cannot even begin to imagine.
I consider myself very open-minded and open to new ideas, and I work hard to ensure that I keep pressing the boundaries of my thinking, but what I saw when I crossed over – it took all my mental strength to make sure my mind didn’t snap.
The reality that you’re going to see when you cross over is going to surprise you no end, and all those little bits of information you glean from looking at the big picture and other elements, like a conspiracy, all fit in – in the weirdest possible ways.
So you’ll have answers to questions like, why so many alien abductions in the States? Why can’t I heal or see demons? Why can some people see demons easily? What are parasites and entities and where do they come from?
The answers are endless… it’s a world full of wonder. And I’d love to give you all the answers, but you have to see them for yourself because only then do you resonate with them.
It is possible to achieve enlightenment – and it’s possible a lot sooner than you think. Make 2017 the year that you finally do.
