Free-Will: Part One
Okay. The game is on, and we can now begin to exhibit our free-will in shaping the future. The surprising events that have unfolded over the past year have told us – unequivocally – that we’re ready for a new reality to emerge. So, what is our part in helping to create a new reality?
First, instead of becoming more agitated, perhaps we become still. Second, we dive deep within ourselves to listen to our Inner Voice. If we get that far, and actually hear an answer, we have to discern how we’re going to approach the message.
While we are listening to the Inner Voice of the Higher Mind, we have Free-Will to act upon it or ignore it. I have found, however, that ignoring these messages comes at our own peril. If we do choose to listen to the message, we need to determine how we are going to interact with it.
I have found that when my Higher Mind or Spirit speaks, it generally knows what it’s talking about. I might go into resistance at the message, and even try to ignore it, but I always lose. Let me give you one humorous example, though it didn’t feel funny at the time.
I have spent a large percentage of my tourist dollars over a lifetime to place myself in France, and I was preparing to visit France once again. It’s a pull from past lives that I have found difficult to ignore. The culture and cuisine have proved intoxicating along with that strange “je ne sais quoi” – or, karma – calling.
As I was readying to buy my plane ticket, I happened to go into a meditation in which The Voice said, “You’re not going.” to which I said, “Yes, I am.” So I bought the ticket. I am a Free Woman with Free Will!
I found the ticket at a good price and packed my bags. The night before the flight I smugly thought “I told you I’m going!” The coast was clear with no obstacles (that I could see) to stop me.
When I awoke the next morning, I had to sprint to the bathroom. Overnight, a pernicious urinary tract infection had set in – for no reason. This had only happened a couple of times in my life, and there was no apparent cause this time. Not only would I not be able to make it to the airport, I couldn’t make it from one rest stop to another in time to heed its very painful call.
I missed my flight. Annoyed, I sat down to meditate over my misfortune when The Voice said, “We told you you were not going.” I asked “But, why?” The response was fascinating.
The Voice said that each time I return to France, each time I speak and hear the language, it brings these pixels of past life energy forward in my aura. These were not the most conscious of past times for me. The message continued by saying that I needed to let this historic energy go and begin building new resonance. Another trip to the scene of my past deeds would subvert this process; it would hold me back.
There had been clues as to this truth, but I had chosen to ignore them. As I practiced my French, I was now finding the language irritating. I suddenly didn’t like the attitude of the people on the language CD. They were haughty. Hearing and speaking the language had become offensive to me. How strange?! “Where was this coming from?” I thought, having completely forgotten the warning given.
Had I paid attention to the signs, I would have willingly cancelled my plans. But I didn’t listen and, instead, exerted my Free-Will. So, why do I mention this? Well exerted Free-Will requires clarity and responsibility, neither of which I exhibited in this instance. I loved the Free part, but I was not understanding the Will part. Whether Will is generated from my small brain or my Higher Mind is of paramount importance in examining the value of Free-Will. I will write about applied Will in its highest sense very soon.
