Prepare Your Mind for Expansion by Unclogging the Bottleneck
Teacher: Teacher Ophelius
The message for today is about preparing your mind for consciousness expansion. Preparation is a necessary first step toward raising your spiritual vibration and it is something you can do now as earth-bound universe citizens rather than waiting until you arrive on the first Mansion world where you will have to be detained and healed of all your dysfunctions and erroneous beliefs before you can continue on into higher worlds of light. Your life here and hereafter will be much more productive, satisfying, and joyful—filled with Truth, Beauty, and Goodness when you clear the mind of those things that distort the light and cast shadows on your future.
You can think about consciousness like a series of spherical containers that are connected by a bottleneck similar to a vase which has a slender tube that expands into a larger volume. As we view consciousness in time, we see a small vase (the one you currently use) connected to a yet larger vase, which is again connected to a larger vase and so on into eternity—each vase becoming a larger container as you progress and ascend the grand universe. The vases are getting larger as time goes by because your consciousness is expanding and you are becoming more god-like which requires a greater awareness of universe realities and an intellect that can more easily understand the Will of the Creator.
It is this slender part of the vase which we would like to focus on because this is the bottleneck where sediments collect, which prevents the mind from accessing the larger volume of the small vase that you have available to you in this life. Not only is it possible for you to transcend the bottleneck and enter this first expanded area of consciousness, here and now, but you can also enter into the slender tube of the succeeding vase that would be accessed on the first mansion world. What we are referring to is accessing the soul-mind which is available to all mortals on the evolutionary worlds, yet is attained by so few.
These sediments which block the tube are the dysfunctions of mind—the selfishness of egocentric thought; the need to be right; erroneous belief systems and fallacies of reality that are learned through family life, and through societal and religious memes. These are the limiting factors that prevent the expansion of mind and they are often times very difficult to dislodge. Unfortunately many minds have to experience great suffering before they “let go” of these limiting beliefs that prevent them from moving forward.
You students on the path can prepare your minds for expansion by unclogging the bottleneck. Examine your own beliefs and the conditions by which you have been subject to in your upbringing. Look to role models of those who have expanded their minds and investigate the path which led them to higher consciousness. Remain open to new ideas and always view life as a continuum that transcends this material life and goes on into eternity and the adventure that lies ahead of you. Always work to remove those things that limit your thinking and you will find you will flow through the slender neck of the vase into the larger places that are filled with Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.
Peace to you,
