Look Within: The Journey of Worship
From Archangel Michael, through Norma Gentile, Spirit of Ma’at Magazine, April 2, 2012
As we draw ever closer to the date of December 21, 2012, more and more people’s attention, and therefore the energies of their life-force, are being drawn to what this might mean. I find myself noticing the buildup of energies around 12/21/12, and wonder if much of what we are experiencing in the world is actually a consequence of our own attention upon the instant, magical change that many expect on this date.
Here is a bit of what my principle guide, Archangel Michael is sharing with me today:
You (humanity) have a built-in predisposition to assign power and prestige to objects and people outside of yourself. Initially in your development as a race, this assisted you with understanding the potential of your true nature.
Now, however, is the time for you to grasp whatever you see before you as powerful, all-knowing or omnipotent, and find that same quality deep within your own physical form. There is a veil between your body and yourself (your personality) that has been lifted. Most humans believe that veil still exists, and they behave accordingly, worshiping those in whom they have placed their confidence – or their fear.
For remember, within the dynamic of Earth’s evolutionary process, you are bound to duality. As you bow before another, you are calling others to bow before you. And what you worship externally is merely someone, or something, that in turn is worshiping another.
This chain of worship does not end in the God that you believe you know. It ends back where it began, within another human or an object. In essence, it is one large circle, with no end and no beginning. But unlike the Biblical reference from which I draw this statement, there is no true God involved.
Worship is reserved for yourself. Consider this statement. What if the only thing or person you worshiped were you? How would that change your belief system and daily routine?
Truly there are aspects of your life in which you are still learning from another. You may decide that having a worshipful relationship to some people and some objects is accurate for you, here and now. These are relationships where you feel you are exploring and finding new strengths within yourself each time you interact with this person or object.
There are also, no doubt, some relationships of worship that no longer serve your journey. The lessons have been learned and the tasks are completed. In these cases the relationships feel uncomfortable, heavy and even painful. Your life-force is engaged in a way that does not reveal and nourish your inner vitality.
This is a most difficult relationship to change. As humans you have a habit of linear thinking. In this pattern, whatever once felt good should continue to feel good to you. But it does not. Honor this sensation and knowing within you. The act of honoring your own knowing will lead you out of the valley within which the relationship dwells.
As humans, both individually and in your shared collective consciousness, you have the ability to give great energy to whatever you focus upon. It can be a shared date such as December 21, 2012, or a more personal event, such as an anniversary or birthday. As humanity moves ever closer to a potentized moment of time such as December 21, 2012, the related energies of human consciousness build before the date. If one could see these energies, they would appear as hills and valleys. Each cycle of hills becomes ever steeper, and the deepening valleys bring greater possibilities for inner revelations.
Perhaps there is an assumption that this process of valleys and hills will cease after December 21, 2012. From the vantage-point of Spirit, this is not an assumption we share.
You (humanity) are in a series of learning processes which will last throughout your own ability to comprehend time. Those souls who choose to continue to incarnate into human form will continue to experience ever new aspects of the reality shared by both incarnate and Spiritual Beings. This is a gift from incarnate humans to All of Creation.
While there are moments, days, and even weeks where you may question your ability to look inward and see that which is worthy of being worshiped, such valleys will also lead to the next mountaintop. Your journey is our journey. We are with you. Look within, and there we will meet you.
