The Seven Christed Qualities to Ascension
by Tony Stubbs
Before we talk about embodying the energy of Christ Consciousness as a necessary part of ascension, lets define what it is. Christ Consciousness is aware energy of a particular frequency that fosters the sense of unity among all beings, matter, and energy. As we enter the Photon Belt, the frequency of our mental, emotional, and physical bodies rises to the point where we approach the frequency of the Christ energy.
Weve always been able to tap into this energy during meditation or those all-too-rare peak moments when we feel connected with everything and in love with everyone. That is our true state, but then some aspect of the hologram we call reality creeps up on us and the sense of unity dissipates.
In that experience of unity, you are tapping into the Christ energy, that particular frequency at which consciousness knows it is one with All That Is. Soon we will live there, but until then, experiencing the Christ energy requires us to take a few steps toward it.
We can identify seven steps that we can tackle in any order or all at the same time. The latter works well, because each step interweaves and supports the others.
How important is all this to you? Do you yearn to embody Christ energy as the number one driving force in your life, and have the Christ Consciousness overlay every aspect of your life?
We are all familiar with the caricature of someone who goes to church on Sunday and returns home to beat the children and argue with the neighbors, or the congregation that discourages new members because they are somehow "not good enough." This happens even in the lightworker community, sad to say, when we forget that who we are doesnt end at our skin but stretches infinitely within All That Is.
How keen is your desire to overcome any limiting, myopic beliefs, to come out of the dark closet of separation, and embrace the glorious light that you really are? It can be scary at first, but as you explore the joyful freedom of unity, the love you feel dissipates the fear. But you must want it as much as you want your next breath. Are you ready?
Are you ready to put service to Source above service to self? Why did you incarnate here? Was it to amass personal power and wealth, or was it to serve humanity and the Source in whatever ways your life skills allow? Are you worried that service to Source would require a lifestyle of poverty and giving up the good things in life? Do you believe that you cannot serve and experience abundance at the same time, or that only martyrs to the cause can serve the Source?
Its a matter of living the paradox: walking the line between your divine nature and your human nature, fully conscious that you are both a Christed being and spark of the Creator, and a human ego crafted to operate in duality and separation. We are each at a crossroads every second of our lives. We can choose to serve the big picture of ascension or the little picture of personal gain and profit. Are you ready?
Most of us incarnate into a scenario in which we take on limiting beliefs about who we are, such as that were separate individuals striving to "earn or learn" our way out of here. We may even believe that being mortal is a punishment of the sins of other lifetimes.
Few of us are imprinted from birth with the truth that we are magnificent sparks of the Creator on a field trip to explore some aspect of being. We become mesmerized by others beliefs and fall into the traps of duality, separation, limitation, and fear. This forms a rock-solid barrier to allowing the energy of Christ Consciousness into our fields and keeps us small, separate, and fearful.
The big question here is whether we can rise above duality, limiting beliefs, and human fear, to allow the Christ Consciousness to move through us. Can we look beyond the hologram we call reality and see the holographic generator behind the scenes? Can we see the operator who is programming the reality we call the events in our daily lives?
The law of dharma states that we each have three obligations: to know our truth, to live our truth, and to share our truth. To know, live, and share. Are you ready?
Whos in control of your life? Ego or spirit? You or someone else? A wise man once said, "What other people think of me is no concern of mine." Do you allow other people to run your life with their expectations of you? Is there any place where you do not allow Spirit to run the show? If something happens that casts you in a poor light, is what others might think of you your first concern, or do you thank Spirit for revealing some insight to you?
Mastery is that quality that allows you to operate above the expectations of others so that youre free to follow your spirit at every turn. That may infuriate the rest of us, but thats our problem. There is no higher calling than the voice of your own spirit. Are you ready?
Is there any part of you that believes that anything on the material level has any real significance? Are you able to let it go? How attached are you to things? Do you take pride in possessions, or do you regard them simply as tools in your service to Source? Would a new computer give you the fastest machine on the block, or would you see it simply as a tool for disseminating your truth? If Spirit said, "Give everything away and join the Peace Corps," could you?
Attachments to anything or anyone automatically block you from Spirit and from embodying the Christ energy. A Zen master once told a self-important would-be student that the master could not serve him tea because his cup was already full, and to return only when his cup was empty. How empty is your cup? Do you have space in your beliefs and your being for the Christ Consciousness, or are you already so full of attachment that theres no room?
When you are the Divine Fool to whom nothing matters because you know that youre doing everything in some life or another, then youre detached. Are you ready?
Bad things happen to good people, good things happen to bad people, good things happen to good people, and bad things happen to bad people. Who decides? Spirit. Spirit will do whatever it takes in its quest for knowledge and understanding, and if that takes the rise to power of cruel tyrants, or the death of a great teacher, so be it.
Can you rise above appearances and trust that the big picture is unfolding exactly as it should? Can you trust in the perfection of the divine plan and flow with it to play your part? Can you accept that everything that happens in your life is part of a larger game plan that you helped design? Are you ready to allow Spirit to work through you?
Do you rail against what is, trying to manipulate yourself and others, to turn the tide back, or can you allow and embrace what is as what is, flow with its perfection, and seek the understanding within it?
For those of us brought up in the Western world, this is probably the most difficult step. Are you ready?
Are there any remaining blocks, fears, or judgments that prevent the pure unconditional love of the Christ Consciousness from manifesting in your life? If so, are you ready to ditch them, or is there still a payoff for you in running fear and judgment?
Fear and love are often cast as opposites, but really fear is simply low-frequency energy that prevents higher-frequency love energy from flowing freely within your being. Get rid of the fear barriers, and you will experience the love.
You cant "love" anyone. All you can do is get out of the way and let the love of creation flow through you. Neither can you bring the energy of Christ Consciousness into you. All you can do is remove the barriers to it and it will fill your entire being. Are you ready?
