This week we look at the mind’s creation of an artificial or created self, complete with image, lines, act, poses, postures and all other forms of winning ways, that stand between us and an experience of ourselves as we are.

We ask Archangel Michael how to escape from this box of our own creation and what being outside the created self looks and feels like.
Perhaps I can say a word about vasanas and the constructed self. Vasanas are the bookmarks we put in life that relate to traumatic events that we do not want to repeat. They’re like scrapbooks or Youtube videos that record the event itself, what we concluded about it, and what we resolved to do in the future. The only way I know of to cause a vasana to disappear is to re-experience our memory of the original incident through to completion. That may be unpleasant but it works and it may require repeated processing.
The constructed self is all the self-images, scripts, acts, poses, postures and other things we devised to keep us from finding ourselves in the same place again that the vasana points to and to win us what we want from life. No constructed self is real and so we meet life through an artificial construction. We don’t meet life directly. As a result we may have no idea what life itself is like. We’re insulated from it, cushioned against bumping up against it.
As we head towards full restoration of our consciousness, all false fronts and traumatic memories will in the course of things fall away, if we’re open to the light. But lightworkers can speed the collapse of this self-image and its appendages, freeing us to serve from a place of love and peace outside the constructed self.
