Everything you will ever want to learn, experience or explore with regard to esoteric knowledge is within you. That is plain human fact. All you need to do is make yourself free to remember it. It takes no other person nor any amount of money to do so.
Increased awakening to the fundamentals and more of consciousness and putting these principles into action in your daily life is a choice. It is a choice that is made individually over and over again. It is one that requires daily attention, often at smaller moments across each day. Because you are human, it ebbs and flows as with all life cycles. It is a practice.
When you make this choice and commit to it, you come to understand that you are cultivating sovereign living. Sovereign living is a way of viewing, approaching and interacting in life such that every aspect of life is your responsibility. Therein lies the freedom. You come to be crystal clear that there is no entity that has true power over you.
Sovereign living can only be established when you understand and maintain that when you have pain and suffering, it is because your soul is choosing to explore this as part of your human experience. When you have joy and success it is for the same reason. Coming to terms with those statements is a process in and of itself. It can take years to integrate this understanding or happen in moments. In this way of living you are doing so as Source, from Source and of Source.
While you have a soul blueprint in this and every lifetime, taking this level of responsibility for yourself allows you to explore experiences, events, teachers and engagements freely. As you seek to grow you look for options to do so. While these explorations can come freely others come with a money exchange.
As an aware child and young adult I always enjoyed exploring my own consciousness via healing arts and esoteric spiritual learning. I have done much of this on my own and a good portion using fee-based healers and teachers since I was about twenty five years old. All of this, inclusive of a conventional advanced education and health care career, has fulminated in my current work as an esoteric teacher today. As part of my sovereign self-care and commitment to my field, I will always be a consumer of fee-based healing services and esoteric education.
It is true that all you need to know about consciousness is within you. With each lifetime you come with more knowledge and understanding given your experience. It’s really a matter of awakening in this lifetime to your remembrance of your lifetimes of experience. Given the position we are in now on earth in our planetary cycle, the Age of Aquarius, the conditions in the ethers and on the planet today are assisting humanity like no other time in modern history to grow and evolve in this endeavor.
There are as many spirituality, consciousness, esoteric healers, teachers, products and business options to consume as there are narratives and methodologies. Some are truer to the reality of conscious design than others. At this time in human consciousness evolution there are every kind of experience to be had for a fee. What you can’t forget is your personal responsibility— your sovereign right to choose thoughtfully and explore freely.
For me, I’ve purchased teaching, events and experiences that have been wildly supportive for me and I’ve had a few that were moderately interesting. I’ve had only a couple that were not particularly beneficial too. In each case, I made the choice to explore them. I learned more about myself in all cases. It may help you to know that when I decide I’d like human help to investigate an interest, I do inner work to ‘invite’ the highest best situation. I intend to make the best connection with the ‘right’ resource for my learning.
I have learned that sometimes what my highest best means will result in a life lesson. Sometimes I’ve needed to moderate my expectations, become better at discernment, or to question what I was provided. Other times I’ve been blown away with the depth of my experience and the scaffolding that opened up for me internally from just some small portion of the work.
What I can do is caution you to be very thoughtful about purchasing any work that promises you ‘if you do these things, this will happen’ or ‘if you have this experience, you will have this kind of outcome’ or ‘if you work with me, your life will get better’, or ‘if you buy this product you will manifest x faster’ etc. Those promises do not align with the reality of consciousness.
It is also helpful to know that yes, there are parts of the planet’s energy system that hold aspects of energies that can assist you to gain more insight and awareness in various ways specific to that location. We do tend to refer to these as natural ancient portals or energy centers, some naturally exist and some remain from ancient societies.
What they are NOT is places to quicken personal ego-associated achievements or manifestation machines. It is also a fact that you can call those energies into your own awareness right from your living room sofa. Once you spend time teaching yourself how this is done.
Some of the less than helpful work is proffered by well-meaning healers and teachers that more often unwittingly and more rarely intentionally mislead others. No one comes out very well in these instances unless you are needing a lesson in exploring this aspect of the human path.
It is wise to understand that consciousness triggers and activations are a normal part of human life. They are divinely timed just for your soul’s experience. While they don’t all occur within the context of human relationship, you can feel led to various types of people and experiences that then trigger or activate an aspect of your many layers of awareness. And yes, other humans tend to play a huge role in our own growth. Some of them in direct interaction and some of them just by knowing, seeing and experiencing them in a variety of settings going about their own lives.
Awakening in consciousness is a divine birthright, not a product for purchase. Therefore treat yourself and the process with deep love and respect. Read what inspires you, write your deepest thoughts and feelings, pay attention to nature and its beauty. Talk to your friends and loved ones about your innermost experiences and allow your life to shift and grow. Most of all, trust yourself implicitly.
Always with my love, Amber
