Give Pause and Let Your Light Shine
Teacher: Teacher Ophelius
Today we would like to speak to you about raising your vibration and tuning into the Will of the Father. Many of you feel discouraged and isolated because you struggle to “hear” the voice of the Indwelling Spirit that lives within, but there is a way that you can prepare yourself to “feel” this Higher Power within, and that is to raise the frequency of your thoughts. This can be achieved through a process of conscious monitoring of your thoughts and a regular practice where you set your intention on thoughts of higher vibration and healthy emotions.
We often hear that many of you students on the path fail to achieve stillness—that your minds simply will not quiet down—that there are constant streams of thought and chatter that prevents you from achieving stillness. I now challenge all of you who struggle with “busy minds” to prepare your mind for stillness by conditioning your thoughts and raising your vibration. Let us first “till the soil” before we “plant the seeds.”
For one week, try to monitor your thoughts and eliminate or change the direction of all negative thoughts or emotions that come into your mind and go out from your mouth or in written form. Do not feel discouraged if you fail and speak or act in a negative way, but become aware that you have allowed this lower vibrational energy to pass through you. Change the direction of that thought now and “counteract” it with a higher vibrational thought or emotion. Ask a friend to help you identify your weaknesses and negative thoughts and challenge each other to change the direction of those thoughts.
It is helpful to “pause” and adjust your thought before you react and speak as you go about your day interacting with others. It is in this “pause” that you can change the direction of your thoughts like flipping a switch. See the switch in your mind and imagine the aura of your energy changing to a lighter color when you think and feel positive loving thoughts. If you fail and fall back into negativity, imagine the brightness of your energy fade and then adjust your thoughts and see it brighten again to a healthy hue.
You see my friends, when you give “pause” you “allow” the Indwelling Spirit a chance to help you through suggestions and options on how to think and feel about a particular situation, event, or circumstance. By allowing this space, you are in essence saying, “Father, let your Will be done.” When you do this, your spiritual vibration is elevated to allow the Father’s Will to pass through you and into the world. Many of you do this unknowingly and this is how love and light is transmuted from the Parent to the child.
With each pause, decision, and action you make to allow this conscious process of changing the direction of your thoughts, your souls are fed by the Father and you become more like Him moment to moment, day by day. By practicing this method of changing your thoughts (raising your vibration), you shall soon be ready to sit in the stillness with a peaceful mind and connect with the highest frequency in creation—the Father of all there is.
Peace to you,
