Preparing to soar

We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Joseph Campbell

“Lighten up,” the cynic remarked. “People are going to start pushing you away from them.”

“They already have,” the fool observed.

“Let them,” the young girl said. “I’m tired of pretending I’m something I’m not.”

 “Perhaps you might want to consider this concept instead: you were operating from an old version of who you are that was based on how you were conditioned,” Maitreya declared. “When you’re ready to change that, you’ll no longer be the caboose of a very long and emotionally draining train.”

“Do you still have the transcription I asked you to record?” Maitreya then asked the woman.

“I do,” she replied.

“You accepted vows a number of years ago to create a sacred sanctuary within yourself where you would be safe expressing your truth. While the circumstances of your life have not been and no longer are exactly as you would like them to be, those who are struggling to step into their authentic selves have benefited from the words we have asked you to share on our behalf. This is a role you agreed to.”

“Even if it made people uncomfortable?” inquired the cynic.

“As many are aware, it is easy to maintain the status quo when the Universe does not attempt to intervene. Are you ready?”

“I Am,” the fool affirmed, feeling the sense of power those two simple words contained.

“You were ready quite a while ago,” Maitreya replied. “It simply took time to peel back the layers preventing you from expressing yourself without trying to make yourself appear perfect in the eyes of those who tend to judge—or, rather, misjudge—every transgression. “Did I need to go through this?’ you might be wondering, and the answer your soul would give you is a resounding ‘yes.’”

Maitreya looked around before continuing. Everyone met his gaze without flinching or turning away. He smiled, knowing that the time had come for them to hear the rest of what he had to say.

“If your desire for freedom is strong, you will stand up against all who attempted to diminish your light—not by proclaiming superiority in any way, shape, or form, but by finding your centre and nourishing the light that might have been neglected as a result of negative belief systems that were instilled long before you would be ready to dare yourself to break the bonds of societal and familial conditioning. This requires tremendous risk, not to mention courage, both of which you learned by pretending to be something that you weren’t. I would like to challenge you to sit with that before proceeding. Taking a leap of faith will give you wings to soar.”

“And so it is,” the cynic said.

“Indeed and in deed, as El Morya would tell you.”

“So be it,” the Queen pronounced, banging her staff on the ground with sufficient force so as to send reverberations straight through to the woman’s bones.

“So be it,” echoed the woman before setting down her pen.

Let yourself be taken to the end of the line, for the caboose is a sign for all that the last in the train is always the forbearer to a clear track. That does not say that the caboose has no function or purpose. In many ways, it is just as important than all the cargo that is being pulled forward.

There is much to say about distancing yourself from those who are carrying toxic baggage that they refuse to give to anyone but you. Let that sink in if you are the one who has the strength and courage to shoulder a large portion of the distractions that have been swirling around. If others are attempting to find their centre, they will learn to see beyond the chaos they have permitted. If they see you as the one causing chaos and that is the farthest thing from your mind, take a step back and reframe the situation.

A gnarled tree is often a beautiful thing to behold, and even though furniture made from burled wood can be breathtaking to view, a tree cannot stand on roots that are rotting.

Are you standing on solid ground? How deep and strong are your own roots? Have you delved within to determine whether there are any that have become entangled, stunting further growth?

Do not fear uprooting yourself and finding a place where you can thrive. Those who are meant to support you will continue to do so. Those who are seeking to be with you for their own gain must learn to become more independent and self-reliant.

Mutually beneficial partnerships are not impossible to create. The Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine within each and every person must—and will—eventually come into perfect alignment. Often the process of doing so can fracture relationships that you hoped would stand the test of time.

Think on soul contracts and ask your intuition to provide you with the deeper lessons that are being learned when the people you care about have rejected or abandoned you. Have they also taught you how to become more independent and self-reliant?

“What a beautiful sunrise!” someone might tell you, while on the opposite side of the world the sun is setting, and someone else might be remarking that another day has ended in the most brilliant and magnificent way.

You will be on opposite sides of many situations throughout this incarnation. Remember that it is a spectrum, and within the continuum are opportunities for advancement—some of which are painful to experience.

At first glance, what do you imagine when you clairvoyantly witness the Kingdom of Heaven within?

Trust your intuition. While this has been said by and to millions of people over the last century alone, it proves how important that hidden aspect of your Divine entitlement can be and is.

Some have attempted to convince themselves they are unworthy of receiving any form of Divine Intervention. Those who have experienced it will likely tell you it is nothing short of life-altering. What category does my message fall into?

Do you perceive me as being in the engine or standing atop the caboose, looking at the scenery around and asking you if this is where you wish to stay? Are the engine and caboose at opposite ends or are they framing an aspect of the continuum? It is entirely up to you to move or remove what is being carried in between.

Framing a window requires that the foundation is sufficiently level to support everything that is built on top of it. The presence of a few cracks does not mean the entire structure is going to crumble. They only require a bit of care and attention, as well as the recognition that the Earth must also be able to support everything that has been laid within it, too.

When your life term has reached its soul designed end, there will be a blissful reunion with all who taught you valuable lessons—including ones that were instilled by those who do not seek to comfort you during your hours of need. Let it be so and remember this important truth: you do not need to placate anyone into accepting you for who you are.

We will always be nearby. There is nothing anyone else can say or do that will destroy your soul’s love for you—or ours, for that matter.

You are free to believe you are unworthy to receive; however, if you are reading this second last paragraph, a part of you knows that toxic patterns are no longer a part of your internal framework. Much occurs behind the scenes that is difficult to express in a handful of short paragraphs designed to promote healing. When each lifetime is seen within the continuum of your soul’s adventure, you will witness the glory of your innate magnificence. Believe this to be so and so it is.

I Am Maitreya. Thank you for spending time with me today.

I am a medium, scribe, intuitive healer, and Reiki Master, and have been channeling messages intended to invoke deep healing and rebalance inner archetypes since September 2001. I work mainly with the High Council, Archangels, and the Elohim. From time to time, I also receive messages from other elevated light beings, such as the Pleiadians and Andromeda, and will often receive messages directly from a person's inner child or an archetype seeking to reintegrate the soul's Light more fully.
