Where Do You Go for Answers?

Where Do You Turn to Discover the Truth?

Today, July 4, 2012, in the United States of America we celebrate the decision to become independent as a nation state.

May I also suggest that this is a good day to celebrate your personal, spiritual independence?

Where have YOU been looking for answers?  Do you keep going outside yourself?  Do you keep expecting others to solve all your programs?  Are you seeking God “out there” somewhere inside of inside yourself?  Are you asking yourself, “When will the aliens land and save us all?”  Are you waiting around for Jesus or Krishna or anyone else show up to fix this world?  Are you looking outside yourself to others to repair your personal life, your physical health, your mental stability, your relationships, your fears?

Have you learned yet that God and

the answers are inside you? 

Have you discovered and refined and strengthened

your internal “truth tester”?

Do you regularly challenge what you hear in the media? 

From friends? 

From family? 

until you “check it out” inside yourself?

Are you learning to DISCERN what VIBRATES with LOVE

and

to make your choices accordingly?

As people are waking up spiritually, it’s normal to go through a phase of expecting that the ones who awoke ahead of you on the “spiritual wave” know more and therefore have all the answers.

This is called “giving away your power.”

STOP GIVING AWAY YOUR POWER!

IF YOU WANT TO BE FULLY AWAKENED,

awaken to the GOD within you.

 

I’ve been working recently with some new clients who seem to need to hear me say, over and over again, that they must start going inside and asking themselves what is “right” or “best” for themselves and make their own decisions.

This is critical – essential – to the process of reclaiming your personal power, your Divinity, your freedom.

This is critical – essential – to your personal spiritual growth.

Here are your choices, as I see them:

LOOK FOR HELP from others who will . . .

  • offer suggestions
  • provide information
  • facilitate your process
  • encourage you to take back your power
  • encourage you to make your own decisions

DON’T ALLOW ANYONE ELSE to . . .

  • convince you they know better than you do what is best for you.
  • encourage you to rely on their opinion over your own.
  • use fear to get you to give away your power to them.
  • use fear to get you to make a decision you don’t feel ready to make.
  • make you feel small and helpless and hopeless.

Of course, there are people and other beings on this planet who are doing exactly that and have been doing exactly that for thousands of years. This has been going on in religions, schools, government, and the media for uncounted years.

You’ll soon be meeting advanced beings with many talents who will present themselves within the illusion that they are older, wiser, and more capable of taking care of this planet and you than you are.  They may even appear to be God-like in their power and abilities.

BUT YOU CAN KNOW BETTER

by using personal discernment!!! 

YOU CAN LEARN TO IDENTIFY THEM

as BEINGS WITHOUT COMPASSION AND LOVE

who seek to hold you enthralled

in the illusion of FEAR!!

YOU CAN LEARN TO see through the ILLUSION!!! 

YOU CAN CHOOSE to express your FREE WILL

by learning to

DISCERN the LIES.

 

What LIES am I talking about?

  • That you are limited in any way.
  • That you are a “sinner.”
  • That you are unworthy of Divine Love.
  • That you are meant to stay small.
  • That you are incapable of making decisions for yourself.
  • That you need to be protected from information and knowledge.
  • That it’s safer to stay in the dark of ignorance than to step out into the Light of knowledge and information.
  • That selfish commitment to greed based on scarcity is more powerful than sharing and cooperation based on LOVE.

I encourage you now – today – this very moment as we celebrate the concept of “independence” to become more independent in a personal and spiritual sense.

TODAY is a good day to

TAKE BACK YOUR POWER!!

DON’T GIVE YOUR POWER AWAY TO ANYONE or

ANYTHING – INCLUDING ME!!

 

Make a new resolution today.

Commit to your personal Pyramid of Power:

“I, [fill in your name],

do solemnly promise myself

that I hereby take back and hold

my personal power in my current life and

all other lifetimes, dimensions, and universes

for all eternity, according to the will of my I Am Presence. 

 

SO BE IT!! AH HO!!  AMEN!!”

 

Happy Independence Day to us All!

Namaste,
Nedda

Some Helpful Ascension Tips

© January, 2012
by Nedda Wittels

There are many, many websites today with lots of information about Ascension. Some of the information is fairly consistent across the board. Other bits of information may seem to be in full conflict with each other.

How are you to decide what is the truth? How can you determine to whom you want to listen and who can help you the most?

Here are a few tips:

Learn “discernment”, which is very different than judgment. If someone tells you they have all the answers – don’t believe them. Go INSIDE and check out the messages with your own, personal truth-testing system. You have one, you know. That is what discernment is – deciding what is “right” and what is “truth” for yourself.

Learn to communicate with your own higher spiritual aspects for support, answers to questions, and anything else you might choose to request. Your “I Am Presence” is YOU at the very highest vibrational frequencies and knows what your path is for this lifetime. Your support team includes higher aspects (Soul, Oversoul, personal guides, teachers, and I Am Presence) who really do know the answers and will help you if you ask. YOU MUST ASK because you have FREE WILL and no one wants to violate your FREE WILL.

Recognize all the ways in which the “world out there” is a reflection of your inner world. Discover how, when you change something inside yourself, the reflection also changes. By focusing within and cleaning up your “act” (all the world’s a stage and we are merely players – William Shakespeare) you will begin to experience new joy and excitement, fulfillment and enthusiasm for your life.

Recognize that you are God living in this body. You are the DIVINE SPARK created by GOD/GODDESS. Since God knows all, then all the answers to all your questions are within you. Learn to access them and take back your personal power.

Choose to align with your Divinity and your Life Path, and you will receive Grace in all areas of your life.

Learn to love yourself.  Looking for Love? Look inside. Loving yourself is essential to living from your heart center, and living from your heart center is essential to successfully navigating through these powerful energies.

Discover that you are worthy of EVERYTHING.

Remember that you are designed to live in joy.

Remember that you carry Divine Light.

Remember that you are Divine Love.

Remember that Divine Wisdom, and

Divine Grace are with you always.

Namaste,
Nedda

Choosing Alignment With Your True Self

February 2, 2009 by  
Filed under Age of Ascension, Food for Thought

One of the benefits I have personally experienced from being more aligned and connected with my True Self (I Am Presence) is that I receive guidance on a regular basis.  Often the guidance appears as a thought in my head not much different from any other thought.  How did I learn to tell them apart?  Practice and testing out what I hear.

Sometimes I notice a thought that clearly isn’t my own.  I may be speaking to someone and I hear myself saying something that I could not have possibly have known myself.  For example, I was talking with a chiropractic nutritionist about a probiotic (healthy microorganisms) I was taking that he had been using with his clients for some time.  I had just asked him a question and the answer just popped into my head.  The moment I heard the answer, I knew it was true.  Before he even responded, I spoke the answer allowed as a question to him.  He immediately agreed.

Now you could, perhaps, call this telepathy, but then that is also a characteristic of the I Am Presence.  Our True Self is a vast being of Light and Love who is completely connected to the Group Consciousness of Humanity and has access to all kinds of wisdom and information.  So, as long as the information is accurate and the wisdom is Divine, does it exactly matter what the source is?

One way to know if information is accurate is called “discernment.”  You use discernment when you test out information internally.  Does this information resonate with you as true?  Does it feel right in your gut?  In other words, does it energetically vibrate with your intuition? 

Keeping a journal of situations where you did this testing might be useful.  Over time, you would be able to identify that more and more often you were accurate when you tested out information with your intuition.

Another time, I had just renewed a prescription at the pharmacy and picked up the first installment.  As I walked away from the counter, I heard a thought in my head, “Check the prescription.  The refills are wrong.”  At one time I might have ignored such a thought as my small self being negative.  This time, I made a note to check the refills on the label.  Being very tired, I headed home.  Later in the day, I did check the label, and sure enough, the number of refills listed was incorrect. 

Listening to your inner guidance system can help you stay alive.  I’ve read stories of people who, for no logical reason, decided not to get on certain airplanes or ships and those vessels crashed or had other problems. 

We all have this connection to our True Self.  We cannot be alive without that energy because that is who we really are.  Our True Self uses many different ways to communicate with us. 

Emotion is one signal mechanism.  If we do something and then feel an unpleasant emotion around it, that’s a signal that our action took us off our path.  If we feel a pleasant emotion, that is a signal that our action is aligned with our path.

Intuition is another signal.  When we listen to our intuition, we are listening to our own True Self.  Our True Self wants the very best for us.  When we make a commitment to listen to our inner guidance, we are making a commitment to align with our Highest aspect.

Just like any other skill, we improve with practice.  The first step is to make the commitment to pay attention to how we are feeling, to listen to our intuition, to test out our decisions with our gut feelings, to check out information using discernment.

Are you ready to make such a commitment?  What are you waiting for?  Start now . . .  today . . . this very moment.  It will change your life for the better.  It will help you find and stay on your personal life path.

If you are already doing this, please share an experience or two where you have been accurate.  Focusing on success brings more success.

How Good Is Your “CR_P Detector”?

November 17, 2008 by  
Filed under Age of Ascension

When I was in college, one of my professors, Clinton Rossiter, told his students that the value of a good education was to develop a finely honed “cr_p” detector.  (No, not “crop” – he wasn’t interested in crop circles or farming.)  Basically, Mr. Rossiter was telling us that we need to be able to discern truth from partial truth and from fiction and lies.

Since then, and even before then, I struggled to rid myself of naivety.  I went to college as an over-protected kid from a rural area who was more comfortable with books than I was with other kids.  I was the youngest student in the freshman class and was completely credulous about most anything. 

Obviously, something has changed.  I’ve learned not to believe a single thing I see on television.  I mean NOTHING on TV is the truth, as far as I’m concerned.  Ads are designed to tell us we are incomplete and inadequate in some way so that the company paying for the ad can sell us something.  Programs neither educate nor uplift us.  They are designed to keep us stupid and ignorant at the least, and distracted from important things at the most.  The medium is the message – sit there and don’t think and just absorb what the characters/actors/so-called “news analysts/pundits” are saying.  (This is also true for most children’s shows, even the ones on public TV, which I watch sometimes because they are at least non-violent and sometimes humorous.  Besides, they let my inner kid have some fun.) 

When watching TV there is no opportunity to question or contemplate or consider.  We are meant to be just sponges, absorbing mindlessly.  Even the news programs are not really telling us the heart and soul of an event – just the bits that will titillate us in some way.  The process of choosing what events to report mostly focuses on the negative.  And heaven forbid that more than one side of an issue should be explored.  “We’re out of time,” the comentator says.  Well, who is deciding how the time on a TV show will be spent?  Not the viewer.  TV is controlled by the people who own the corporations that own the stations and pay for the shows “they” want us to watch.  That’s the bottom line.

So how in the world are we supposed to develop our capacity to think, to question, to consider, to creatively decide for ourselves what is really going on, what really should be done to solve a problem?  How do we know which, if any, politican, is giving us some portion of truth, and whether any of them is telling us the whole story?

And by the way, don’t assume that “they” know better than you do because, frankly, I don’t think they do.  I think they are bumbling around or being lead by the nose by special interests or what they think will keep them in power.  But that’s another discussion.  Back to sorting out truth from fiction.

One of the really sad things is that our public schools no longer (if they ever did ??) train our children to think, either.  And with 30-50% of today’s children on officially prescribed medication designed to have them sit quietly, absorb like sponges, and do what they are told, there is little chance that they will develop questioning minds.  Obedience and passing the test by giving the proscribed answers are the gods that many educators and parents worship.  Frankly, I find this repulsive, dangerous, and tragic.  We are making our kids into puppets . . . preparing them to be automatons.  We are teaching them to give up their power, and that makes for poor citizenship in a democracy. 

But the chances are that you, the God Self reading this, are no longer of school age and are still faced with figuring out what and who is telling you the truth about anything.  So how do you go about doing this?

For some people, “seeing is believing,” but remember, what you “see” is actually determined by your brain, not by your eyes.  Light energy packets (photons) touch the cells of your eyes and are turned into electromagnetic impulses which are sent to your brain and then your brain interprets them based on what information it has accumulated during your lifetime.  As a result, what you think you are “seeing” may really be what you expect to see or what you have been programmed to see.  Hmmm.  Maybe we can’t always trust what we see?!

I’ve been watching the extended DVD’s of The Lord of the Rings trilogy recently, and when I saw the portions where they show how the movie was actually made, I realized that the final images we see in the film are created piece-meal and then put together and manipulated to make what appears to be a seamless set of images telling a story.  Wow!!  And this story evokes emotion and makes me feel like I am in Middle Earth when I watch it.  Boy, what a way to manipulate the audience.  Now this is fine, if everyone agrees what we are watching is fiction.  But what if the same techniques are being used to make us think that what we see on news programs is “real”?

OK.  So maybe we can’t trust what we see. 

Maybe you’re the kind of person whose truth testing system is auditory.  If you hear it, it must be true.  The power of “the Word” may be your way of determining truth. 

I submit that the spoken (and written) word is also to be questioned.  Of course, what we “hear” are actually sound waves that move the ear drum, creating electro-magnetic impulses that the brain then interprets.  We are back again to what we have been programmed or expect to hear.  And with words there are still other difficulties.

For example, the meaning of a word to one person may be something totally different to someone else.  “Pissed” in England means “drunk”; “pissed” in America means “angry”. 

Even when people agree on the meaning of a word, you can’t ways be sure what the person who is speaking is intending.  We often make all kinds of assumptions in interpreting what someone else means.  A politicians says, “I stand for Change” but fails to tell us what kind of change in any sort of detail and we fill in the blank with what we would like it to mean.  Or a friend says, “I’ll see you later” and when exactly is later?  Later today?  Later tomorrow?  Later sometime or other?

We provide our own context for words that others speak, assuming that we even hear the words correctly.  What about all the times we don’t hear the words the other person actually says?  For example, you’re making an appointment to see your doctor and the receptionist gives you a date and time and you write down a different date or time.  The person spoke one thing and you heard another. 

And how well do we actually listen to someone who is speaking?  Most of the time we are thinking about what our response to that person will be and we don’t really hear what is being said at all.

Even when you read, psychologists have demonstrated that most of us only read things that support our opinions and beliefs.  How often do you read something that creates dissonance, that make you uncomfortable because it doesn’t fit your belief systems.  If we only read things we agree with, how can we consider other possibilities and determine what is true?

There are so many ways that words can deceive us.  Maybe we need another way to test truth.

I propose that the best type of truth test is one based on your own discernment – your own intuition – your own inner “knowing” – your own “I AM Presence” communicating with you internally.  Since everything is energy, we can check out what someone is telling us by asking ourselves, “Does this resonate with me?”  “Does this vibrate in harmony with me?”  “Does this make me feel good about myself and the world, or is the speaker trying to make me afraid, trying to disempower me, or trying to manipulate me in some way?”

If you feel you can trust someone, ask yourself, “What about this person makes me feel I can trust him/her?  Is there any reason I should not trust this person?”

TRUSTING YOURSELF is a big part of this.  Let NO ONE, even me, tell you what is TRUE.  Only YOU can decide for yourself what is TRUE.  Stand up for yourself; take back your power of discernment; decide for yourself what to believe.  But to do this, you must QUESTION EVERYTHING you have taken for granted, one bit at a time.

The time to start is now, since “now” is all we have. 

Have fun doing this.  It will be an eye-opening experience.  It will be music to your ears.  It will give you new insights into your intuitive abilities.  It will be challenging, and exciting, too.
