(Continued from Part 1
The Arcturians on Ascension Part 2
Received by Sal Rachele, November 8, 2004, http://salrachele.com/webchannelings/arcturiansonascension2.htm
Greetings, beloveds. In this message we will take a look at the mechanics of the ascension process. The channel, in his book, “Life on the Cutting Edge”, talks about building the crystal light body. Before we get into the heart of this subject, we will go a little into the preparation necessary in order to ascend.
There is a paradox here, beloveds. We said in Part 1 that ascension is a natural process that spontaneously unfolds. So why the need for preparation? Let’s use the cocoon analogy. If the cocoon is in a favorable and safe environment, the butterfly emerges naturally after a period of stasis. Similarly, when the human environment is favorable and safe, the human will emerge into the light body. So preparation, in this sense, involves creating a favorable and safe environment for ascension to take place.
We all know that if you constantly dig up a germinated seed to see if it is still growing, you will hinder or even destroy the process of growth. The same is true of the butterfly and the cocoon. You cannot open the cocoon to check on the progress of the butterfly or you will destroy the process. In the process of human ascension, you cannot constantly doubt the process, or try to artificially hurry it up, or try to control it with drugs or external effects. You must TRUST in the process and allow it to unfold.
There are a number of external factors that will either assist or hinder the process. We will go into these briefly before we talk about the Master Template, the actual mechanics of the ascension [in Part 3].
Preparing the Physical Vehicle
The way to create a favorable and safe environment for the body is to recognize the difference between what the ego wants and what the body truly needs. Beloveds, you must learn to listen to the body without the clamor and screech of the ego’s desires. In Archangel Zadkiel’s discourse to Sri Ram Kaa in the book “Sacred Union”, he is advised as to the difference between nourishment and eating. So in today’s message we will begin with this important distinction.
Although this channel [Sal] still eats some animal products, he has found that limiting heavy meals to one per day during the middle of the waking period seems to work best for his personal energy. For breakfast and dinner, he frequently has an energy bar or a little trail mix or a few nuts. The one substantial meal is ideally a salad or plate of veggies, although the channel has admittedly often not taken the time to adequately prepare the mid-day meal.
Dearly beloveds, we are not trying to dictate food choices and eating habits in this message, but only pointing out that you should experiment and observe what preserves energy and what dissipates it. Most people, especially in this country [America] eat way too much food. People eat to self-medicate, to socialize, out of habit, out of convenience.
We will issue one general statement, while respecting your individuality: Minimize meat and dairy. Minimize amount of food intake. Maximize nutritional value of the food. Use powdered or liquid supplements (not capsules or tablets). Try, whenever possible, to use organic foods. And above all – LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. Not the ego, the BODY. Eat when you are truly hungry, not out of habit.
Another aspect of preparing the physical vehicle for ascension involves the observation of natural body rhythms. Try to avoid sleeping on a schedule. We realize this is difficult for those of you that work regular jobs. The channel has, over the past several months, entered into a schedule of sleeping between the hours of 9:00 PM and 2:00 AM.
He frequently uses the period between 2:00 AM and 4:00 AM to process psychological issues and receive instruction from us and the Confederation. Your rhythms may vary from the channel. Our one simple statement regarding body rhythms is this: Pay attention to your up and down cycles. Work during up cycles, rest during down cycles. Structure your life in such a way as to be able to honor your biorhythms.
We would like to make an important point about environment. It is essential that you create a space around yourselves that promotes well-being and ascension. Get together with like-minded individuals. Attend workshops and seminars on ascension. Listen to music that is uplifting. Certain classical and New Age melodies are specifically geared toward creating an environment conducive to ascension.
Refuse to associate with people who “suck” or “snatch” your energy – you know the ones. As one of your popular psychologists once said, “Learn to say ‘no’”. Your time and space are valuable to you. While they may be illusions in the ultimate sense, in this 3D world in which you find yourselves, they are important tools to be used to help you ascend. Use them wisely. Make time to be alone. Make space to be alone. Choose carefully the people you allow into your space.
Do not allow pessimism, worry, fear or doubt into your space. These are like hostile elements around the cocoon. They may or may not penetrate the protective layers of the cocoon, but why take a chance? It takes energy to constantly put up protection against negative psychic or physical influences. Honor and respect your own personal space. It is not unloving to be discriminating. In fact, it is one of the most loving things you can do. After all, you cannot be of maximum service to others if you surround yourself with distractions and unruly people.
Finally, in our message on preparing the physical vehicle, we must mention the necessity of letting go of all preconceptions and misconceptions about the body itself. This vehicle you house yourselves in is a finely tuned instrument, like a supercomputer. When it is properly taken care of, it will remain serviceable for as long as it is desired. In the case of ascension (and we will go into this later), the body is literally transformed without going through the process of death (although most of the cells die every few years).
This body, while not intended to last forever, can nevertheless be made immortal, impervious to death, disease and destruction. It is wise to acquire the awareness that this body can be fashioned in any way desired: Young, beautiful, strong, free of disease and aging. Eventually, you will even learn how to deconstruct and reconstruct (materialize and dematerialize) the body. You will learn how to teleport it from one location to another. You can even learn how to “shape-shift” or change its features at will.
All these things you can do as you master the process of ascension. By visualizing these things and knowing they are possible, you begin to draw these experiences to you, according to the Law of Mind, or law of the fourth dimension. Although ascension is a movement into the fifth dimension, mastery of the laws of the fourth dimension is a necessary part of the building and maintaining of the light body, just as mastery of algebra is necessary to learning calculus.
Well, beloveds, we have covered quite a bit of introductory material in this lesson. … We are the Arcturians. We come with great love. We come in service to the Infinite One.
