The Real Secret

The word spirit comes from the Latin word spiritus, meaning “breath”. Spirit is the breath of life. The word intelligent is from the Latin, intelligentia, meaning “choosing between”. Spiritual Intelligence is our ability to choose between spirit and ego. We consciously practice spiritual intelligence when we intentionally choose spirit over ego, love over fear, and the highest good for all over selfish interest..

The Voice of Spirit is the voice of our Higher Self. My Higher Self is that which has never left its creator. All Higher Selves are connected as One. I connect to my Higher Self through my soul. My soul is my dream self — that part of me that has wandered through countless life experiences trying to find its way back home to the Higher Self. My soul desires to wake up and remember who it is..

I develop my spiritual intelligence when I join with my soul and choose to identify with my Higher Self, my Spirit. In this state of identification I realize that I am not my body. I am not my gender or my profession. I am not my ethnicity nor am I my religion. I am not my life situation, my illnesses, my financial position, or my status in society. I am not my problems and I am not my past. Spiritual identification has me detaching from all forms and experiences and seeing myself as a spiritual being in this human experience..

Many people in spiritual circles like to call on angels, Jesus, or other beings of light. This is good. Many others make use of rituals, tools, methodologies, and programs to learn and grow. This can be good, too. As we develop spiritually we come to realize that we are the light. You and I are the light that we seek. There is nothing we can seek that we don’t already have within us. There is no person, program, or methodology that can do it for us. Nothing, of itself, will bring you the light or awaken you. It is your intention and willingness that that leads you to the power that lies within you..

This is the real “secret”. There is nothing out there you need. Love, peace, prosperity, and wholeness are already within you. When you trust in this completely, you have all that you need in the physical. When we are hung up on the form–the car, the house, the bank account, the great body, the great relationship– we make the form our source. The source, God, is within us, and is always available. We are not separate from God, and that is the secret..

We are born into this world not knowing the secret. If we knew it, we wouldn’t need to be here. Yet, we are here, so there is something to be learned. Both our tendencies to live from spirit and our tendencies live from ego are manifested in the physical world by way of the Law of Attraction..

The film and the book, The Secret, is an inspiring piece of work about the Law of Attraction. Certainly you can use the Law of Attraction to build the life you desire. It should be noted however, that both Hitler and Stalin successfully used the Law of Attraction. The movie indicates that wealthy power brokers have always used the Law of Attraction. This is where spiritual intelligence comes in. When you create, are you creating from spirit or from ego? ..

Another point The Secret makes is: “Anyone can do this.” Do what? Create a $4 million home? Own several luxury cars? Live a wealthy lifestyle? If this is true, then are we to conclude that those of us who are not enjoying these riches have something wrong with our thinking? On this basis we would have to make Donald Trump one of our primary spiritual teachers, and Bill Gates would be the world guru..

Each of us has an individual purpose to be played out in this life. For some, having great wealth is part of their purpose. For others, it may not be. Some people will practice changing their thoughts and emotions and find quick success. Others may practice for twenty or thirty years and find no change in what they have manifested. Neither scenario conclusively tells us where someone is in consciousness. The relationship between cause and effect is not linear. It is unlikely that you will think a negative thought today and the next day something bad will happen to you. Consciousness is made up of your awareness, understanding, and knowledge (or lack of). The physical manifestations in your life are not predictable to the ego mind..

For example, you may have a deep issue with unforgiveness. At the same time you are healthy, wealthy, and have good relationships. In spite of your wealth and health, you feel badly. In another instance, your unforgiveness may play out as indebtedness, poor health, or hurtful relationships, or all three. In truth, you don’t know what you signed up for when you came to this life. Cancer may manifest from deep anger, or maybe you signed up for the cancer experience to learn something else. Our life experiences are not rewards or punishments. They are opportunities for growth that we have agreed to on another level of consciousness..

I have heard people say, “I would rather be unhappy and rich than unhappy and poor.” Unhappy is unhappy. If you are very unhappy, wealth can provide plenty of distractions that keep you right where you are. Whereas, if you have a load of debt to contend with, you may be motivated to do the work. It is possible to be deeply indebted and ecstatically happy. If you can maintain that happiness the debt will probably dissolve in time. Whether it does or not is not the point. The important thing is that you have found inner wealth, peace and joy within, and that you have stopped identifying yourself with your manifestations. No one is luckier than you. The danger of finding wealth in the physical before you have inner wealth is that you will think the physical wealth makes you special..

Great wealth, excellent health, and beautiful relationships are wonderful to experience, but they are forms. Forms are effects. It is the cause that you focus on as a spiritually intelligent being. At some point in the spiritual development process, having nice things seems important. Further on your path, you just don’t care about stuff anymore..

Being anti-materialist, promoting the image that you are just not into stuff, is no different than the rich person who identifies himself with his wealth. The attention is still on the form. Being “non-materialistic” doesn’t make you special. Whether you have a lot of stuff or not is irrelevant. What counts is your ability to detach from it and to recognize that you really don’t own anything. You are not your stuff (or lack of stuff). You are a spiritual being on the road home to your Higher Self..

The secret to your inner joy and wealth is your spiritual intelligence, your ability to choose between spirit and ego. There is a beautiful three step process based on a book called The Song of Prayer from A Course in Miracles. In the first step, you give all of your goals, your problems, and your concerns to God as a gift. Once you have emptied yourself, you join in song with God. That is, you identify with your Higher Self and immerse yourself in its love. In this state you know that you are blessed and loved unconditionally. The third step is called the Echo. That is, miracles show up to remedy problems or that help you achieve your goals. The real miracle is your ability to let go and identify with spirit. This creates inner wealth, inner health, and inner love..

We are 100 % responsible for our lives. This means that opportunities abound for us to respond by shifting our attention to our spiritual identity. Responsibility is not blame. Responsibility is power and opportunity. It comes down to this: in this very moment, who is running your life? Is it spirit or is it ego? Is it love or is it fear? If you are feeling anything less than peace, your ego is having its influence. Remind yourself that you are not your body, not your situation. You are a spiritual being. In this lies your strength. In this thought you know that low self esteem, self condemnation, and blaming others are illusions. They are just stories you have told yourself..

Be the real you. If you knew that you were a powerful spiritual being, how would you stand? How would you carry yourself? What would be the expression on your face? What kinds of thoughts would you allow into your mind? If you knew that you were unconditionally loved, how would you act? What words would you use? What would be your tone of voice? This is one way you practice spiritual intelligence. You become aware, and then you become who you really are..

This awareness, understanding, and knowledge allows you to approach life with confidence. The essence of the successful use of the Law of Attraction is confidence. When you approach life with utmost confidence, your world responds. Confidence based solely on externals, or even based on knowledge of psychology, is fragile. Confidence based on spiritual strength is power..

This is the secret the world has kept from you–that you are God expressing as you. Each moment that you choose to live from your spirit is a powerful and expansive moment. Each moment you make this choice you influence others. You are a light. You are a blessing to the world..

Choosing An Identity Aligned with Your Highest Vision

It is possible to hold a vision for your life year after year without
seeing it manifest in your physical reality. Many people hold themselves in a place of judgment, feeling there must be something “wrong” when their dreams seem to elude them. There is nothing “wrong,” though you may need to adjust your perspective to manifest your vision. We will offer here some insights into how you can transform this circumstance.

One of the most common reasons people fail to manifest their dreams is that their current “identity self” is not aligned with their highest
vision. If the vision your higher self brings you is that you are an
energy healer but your present identity is that you are a clerk at a
fast food restaurant, you have some changes to make in your identity.

As long as the self with which you are strongly identified is vastly
different from the self that is experiencing your highest vision, you
will go through your days with a feeling of being “outside looking in,”
with your deepest desires perpetually beyond your reach.

This does not have to be the case. By making a simple adjustment in
perspective, you can begin living your highest vision within your
present moment. In this way, by identifying with anything you choose to bring into your reality, you make it “real” in your world.

We offer here a process for adopting a new identity self aligned with
your highest vision.

One) Enter a quiet, meditative state. Allow the highest vision for your
life to come into your mind. Hold this vision in a steady focus, seeing
it in as much detail as possible. Feel what it is like to be
experiencing this reality.

What does it look like?

How are you interacting with the people around you?

What activities do you participate in?

Two) Ask your self, who is the self experiencing this reality?

How is this self different from your present-moment self? What would you have to believe to be this self who is experiencing your highest vision?

How do these beliefs differ from your present-moment beliefs?

Three) Observe the differences between this self and your present-moment self.

 Move back and forth between the self experiencing your highest
vision and your present-moment self. Step fully into the feeling state
of each self, observing each in detail.

Continue to work with the process of moving back and forth between the two until you have a clear understanding of their differences, their similarities, and can move easily between the two.

Four) Set your intention to adopt the self who is experiencing your
highest vision as your identity self. Allow this identity to become your
focus self.

Five) As you move through your days, allow this new identity self to
inform your actions. Observe your thoughts. Observe how you relate to the world from the perspective of this new identity.

This is a process you can use over and over again as your highest vision continues to grow and evolve in your journey of becoming.

Is it possible to be awakened through observing anothers awakening?

Do you know your purpose in life?

I AM Raphael, the Angel of Healing and Transformation and it is a
delight and an honor to be here with you once again. There have been
so many changes, so many shifts of energy that each time we come
together in this way all is new.
The question is asked this day of how a divine human determines or
even finds their life purpose. There are layers to this and I begin
this day by saying that the underlying energy of believing that there
is a purpose to your life is one of them.
There are many who have come to this earth who do not truly have a
purpose for being here other than the whole experiencing of life
itself, in density, living in a world of duality. Nothing more and
nothing less. For these ones they are content to go about their day
to day existence, never imagining that there is more to life than
what they see around them, never stepping foot outside the small
human box in which they live their entire lives. This small
existence, this experiencing of a focused life, is the entirety of
their life purpose. There is nothing wrong with this and in their own
way, these ones who live their lives without ever truly stepping into
the consciousness and awareness that many of humanity are now opening
themselves to, have a role to play in All That Is, for nothing is
ever lost or without meaning.
You know that you are here to enjoy the experience and the discovery
and experience of your passion is what brings depth and meaning to
the human experience.
For those who are now awakening and for those who have had much
awareness in their lives thus far, the energy of having a purpose for
what they are experiencing, what they are seeing and what they are
feeling in every moment is paramount for them. For this is what truly
gives meaning to the divine human, knowing that you are here for a
reason and that there is more to your physical life than you are
perceiving with your human senses.

And thus we come to the question in that many are wondering just how
to discover what they are here on this earth to do, to accomplish or
even simply to experience. For many are feeling a lack in some ways,
a hole in their experience where surely something wonderful and grand
should be present for them. This is the area of energy, of beingness
where the conscious ones seek to place their purpose for being on
this earth. And this is the place where your passion belongs.

It is actually very simply my friend. Your divine passion and the
experiencing of that divine passion in all ways, is the foundational
purpose that you are here on this earth in the form that you are
using to ask this question. You know that you are here to enjoy the
experience and the discovery and experience of your passion is what
brings depth and meaning to the human experience.

So how do you find your purpose, which is your passion? I say to you
now my friend, that if you do not allow yourself the time of being
with you, with yourself only, sitting quietly and listening and
feeling, you will struggle more with this than you can possibly
imagine!

*The answers that come to the divine human come from the places of
being quiet, of being with oneself. And in this society which is
increasingly busy and full of attempt to fill time to show that one
is diligent, dutiful and honorable to others, there is less and less
time to devote to the inner self, which is now crying out to be heard!

You can not find your purpose, discover your passion and move into
the realization of it if you do not give yourself the time to seek it
within!
*
I ask that you take a moment and feel the energy of this, for there
is much here. Your world is too busy at times and your physical body
can suffer right along with your own soul, which hungers for the
expression of your passion just as much as you do! For in the
discovering of your purpose, the realization of your passion, you are
fulfilling the path of your own soul.

To begin from the beginning, sit quietly with yourself and imagine
that there are no time constraints, no place you need to be, nothing
that you need to be doing. In this quiet and safe space you have all
the divine time that you could ever possibly need. And in this
beautiful space you will find that you have all the peace that you
need as well, for peace is one of those things that is most lacking
in the busy world.

In the place of peace and quiet and regardless of what your mind is
saying to you, let everything go. Let go of the demands of your outer
world and breathe deeply, slowly moving your attention into the
breath and being fully present in your body.

In this place, begin to imagine what you would like to do in your
life if there were no constraints placed upon you at all. Imagine
that you have all the abundance that you desire and your life can
then be anything that you choose it to be. It is in this place where
you can now simply ask yourself, “what would I do? How would I
express my divine being in my life?”

In a perfect world, what would you do before all other things? What
brings you the greatest joy and fulfillment?

The more you are able to let go of your outer world, which is a
compilation of the needs and desires of others, the more you will be
able to move deeply within to find your own soul self and then to
listen to what it has to say to you. Allow yourself to feel the
energies that come to you, feel them without fear and without
judgment. For when you go into the judgment of yourself and take on
the belief that there is something that you “should” be doing
or “have to” be doing, then you are stepping completely out of the
flow of divine energy that is coming to you in this place directly
from you.

In a perfect world, what would you do before all other things? What
brings you the greatest joy and fulfillment? Allow yourself to bring
these ideas and dreams into your present space and examine them. For
these are the foundations of your soul purpose my friend. These are
the directions to living a life that is truly what you came here to
experience.

*And my friend, your mind may jump in here and give you all the
infinite reasons why you should not be doing this or that and this is
a good time to simply tell your mind to get out of the way as well.
You are letting go of the mental aspects and in this space it is
vastly more important to be in connection with your heart instead.
Tell your mind to leave you alone during this time and it will, for
you are the divine master and are one to be honored.*

Explore the energies of your heart and see what is there for you.
Allow yourself to bring in any energies that feel passionate to you,
whatever their form or substance. And then my friend, simply play
with the images and feelings that come to you. And when you come to
one that fills your heart with joy, that brings a flush of energy to
you, then that is one of your divine purposes in this life.

I use the plural of “purpose” here to illustrate that there is more
than one divine purpose, for life is full of many expressions. And
when you determine a course that you’d like to take, an adventure
you’d like to embark upon, simply know that this is not for a
lifetime. And in any moment you can make another choice, for it all
about the experience and it is all about what brings you joy and
fulfillment. And if that changes from one moment to the next, then be
at peace with that as well.* For you are not here to answer to some
higher being who tells you that you can only do this or that.* You are
here to discover that which brings you joy and then experience the
full expression of the unfolding of that expression in your physical
existence.

You are here to discover, to explore, to learn and to find that which
is your highest expression. Be at peace my friend, for you are doing
magnificently!

I AM Raphael and it is once again a delight to share this time with
you. At any time you are feeling lost or unsure, take yourself away
from the energies of others and breathe in the energies of you. For
you are the foundation for your life and there is no one who can
bring more comfort and knowing to you than your own soul.

We are complete.

~ Archangel Raphael
