Teaching from Ascended Master Jesus: Getting Over Inferiority Issues

The issue of inferiority is among one of the most common in human beings on Earth at this time. Almost every person you ask, even highly spiritual, awake and aware individuals, will admit some sort of inferiority complex (if they don’t, they don’t know about it or are lying to themselves). Sometimes inferiority can be masked as superiority, and other times it is just a plain, old, depressing feeling of inferiority. The issue of spiritual inferiority and spiritual one-up-man-ship has become significant of late, especially amidst the new age movement. How many crystals one has, how many salt lamps are in one’s house, how many ascended masters are one’s personal spirit guides, and how many hours spent a week doing yoga have literally become items of competition amongst “spiritual crowds.”

Inferiority can be an especially big issue for souls that are very spiritual and very aware, because any “flaws” or “negative qualities” are perceived as that much worse. “If I’m so spiritual and aware, then why do I still do X?” we will ask ourselves. “If I am so advanced, how come I can’t see auras, openly speak to high vibration beings, know the solution to any problem, or do what so and so can do?” We tear ourselves apart because we feel like we should be doing better than we are. It is especially frustrating because as spiritually aware individuals, we hear all the time how “the soul is perfect,” “flaws are perfect,” “we are already perfectly healed,” “we are exactly where we need to be,” and etc., and part of us accepts these truths but part of us questions them. “How can these things be true? I certainly don’t feel perfect!”

After struggling with my own spiritual inferiority issues for some time, I decided it was time to address them and move forward. Since I could feel the presence of ascended master Jesus around me a lot lately and was reading A Course in Miracles at the time, I felt compelled to reach out to him and ask for help. I asked for wisdom and understanding with respect to the feeling of inferiority. A few days later, I had a sort of “information download” – it was like a sudden understanding and explanation that came in a split second. I then had to unpack the download. I thought about how we are always told “we are already perfect” and “the soul is perfect” and I realised that this is true. The soul is perfect. We are all perfect. The perceived imperfections we have are chosen by us, assigned by us, when we choose to incarnate on Earth. In other words, as perfect souls, we choose “limits” when we come into being. We choose to shut off the full spectrum of our spiritual abilities, wisdom, memory, understanding, beingness, everything. The soul is still perfect and the being is still perfect, but it has chosen to limit itself in a sense, in order to learn and work through the limits. The limits are stored within the ego or lower self, the part of the individual that is everything but divine love, and the part that is not true, not real. Only the divine, immortal soul is real and true, and the ego/lower self is illusion – illusion that has to be accepted, healed, integrated and released so that we can return to our true state of divinity. We do this by carrying forth our limits from lifetime to lifetime (in the form of the ego/lower self) to heal them.

For people who are very spiritually awake and aware, he or she might still ask – but how can I have *this many* problems if I am supposed to be more whole, more complete, with less ego/lower self? The answer is that the stronger souls choose more weakness to work through and deal with because the soul knows it can. The soul chooses to struggle because (1) it can handle the issues (2) it can resolve the issues (3) it has a strong drive to resolve the issues and (4) in resolving the issues for itself, it energetically paves the way for others to do the same. The soul thus offers itself in sacrifice for the good of the whole (as Jesus did). In other words, when one person is able to come out of heavy drug and alcohol addiction and turns their life around, the trailblazing of this path reverberates across the universe. This then means that others struggle less with doing the same. Similarly, many aware souls come to Earth with a locked life purpose, meaning they do not know what their life purpose is or how to align with it. This does not mean that these souls are less evolved or less capable than others, nor that these souls have never contributed anything to existence. It means that the soul has the strength, drive and means to overcome this difficult issue (having a locked life purpose), and in unlocking their own life purpose, others become more able to do the same.

If you are struggling with inferiority issues because you feel you should be better than your “limits,” know that the root of this is your comprehension of your innate perfection. You are already aligned with your divinity and understand that you are divine. You have a firm, first-hand, deep understanding that you are perfect, that you are whole, that you are a spark of the Creator. You question your awareness and wholeness because you feel you “should” be perfect and thus feel inferior. Remember that you are perfect indeed, but that you have chosen to limit yourself. You have chosen limits because you knew you were strong enough to overcome them, and in doing so, that you would help others who are less strong to overcome the same. You have come here in sacrifice. In service. You are here to accomplish work akin to Jesus, who came and offered his life so that humans could attain levels of spiritual awareness previously locked. If you are struggling with all the limits you have assigned yourself in this lifetime, allow yourself to let go of feelings of inferiority, and keep pushing strongly forward.

Indoor Smudging Instructions from a Mohawk Elder

1 Place dried sweetflag root (rat root) under the tongue (protects against absorbing negative energies while performing the cleansing) – Purchase seeds here.

2 In an abalone shell, place sage at the bottom

3 On top of the sage, place the four direction herbs: sage, sweetgrass, tobacco and cedar (you can use dried, and cut up small)

4 Light the herbs, blow out the flame and allow to smoke. Use a rattle to blow the smudge and break up energy as you go. You can also use the rattle to bang on things now and then (with authority) to “scare” energies into mobilizing.

5 Begin at the front door of the house, and walk around the perimeter clockwise, smudging as close to the inner boundaries of the house as possible. If you can, open up all doors, cabinets, etc. and smudge inside, and also go over mirrors to seal them. Leave all doors open (closets etc) except the front door while you do this and ensure no one enters or exists the house while you are smudging. While you are smudging, you are praying to the Creator to take the energies from inside the house out and to transmute them into something useful/positive. Keep repeating this prayer as you go around.

6 Once you have gone around the perimeter and are back at the front door, open the front door for a minute or so and ask that the Creator take the energies outside. Allow to exit.

7 The process is now done. You can next create a protective barrier around the perimeter if desired. This may be hard to get a hold of, but scatter the ashes collected from burning a sacred fire around the inside perimeter of the house, just a tiny bit no need to make lines. This will create a protective barrier. You can also use charged crystals or other folk herbs/substances to do the same.

How to Sense and Interact with your Power Animals

What is a power animal?

A power animal is an animal spirit guide. We are born with at least one or two power animals which usually serve as our “permanent” guides. These animals will assist the individual with his or her life path, major life lessons, life purpose, etc. Power animals can also come to us at certain points in our lives in order to assist with specific issues, and can leave if no longer required. So for example, if one is trying to learn how to see reality from a higher soul-level perspective rather than analysing all the little things, an animal guide like Eagle, who can soar high and see the bigger picture, may want to come and help.

Each power animal has unique characteristics, and assists with different issues. These usually correspond to the nature, way of life, and strengths of the particular animal as we see in our physical reality. Lion can assist with courageousness and personal power, Dog can teach loyalty and unconditional love, Butterfly helps with personal transformation or metamorphosis.

The Shaman’s Oracle – A Glimpse into The Ancestral Realm

 The Shaman’s Oracle is a very interesting and complex oracle card system that helps users learn to tap into the archetypal energies of ancestors and spirits that are normally only accessible in the shaman’s domain. It is based around the concept of shamanic journeying, a practice of using altered states of consciousness to access normally unseen realms and connect with its inhabitants to uncover information or produce healing effects in the physical world. With this in mind, this oracle set not only serves as a divination tool, but also as an introductory teaching aid to journeying.
