Address of Jun. 14, 2009: “Overwhelming” tasks

by archangel Gabriel

Be greeted, dearest friends on earth! May the blessings of the Lord be with you! And when I say this to you, this is not a mere angelic way of greeting you, but this is indeed a way for you to receive our assistance, in form of energies from the highest realms. When we join with those who bring our words to you, more than words are flowing to you. Words are simply a “carrier”, they bring a message to the mind, but this is not the only energy attached to those words. When we say, “blessings”, we are not just saying a nice word – indeed, this word is connected to a higher energy, and those among you who read this and are perceptive to finer energies, might even be able to feel this.

However, this is not the reason why I joined you today – not just to talk about “blessings” and energies, but I have come today to talk about the current human situation, and how the situation in the world is affecting most humans on this planet. As you are nearing the transition, you and mankind are facing more and more challenges. Yet, dear friends, this is no reason to give up, or even decide to leave this planet prematurely. It is not even reason to be depressed or in a bad mood. Quite to the contrary. You chose to be here, at this time. Not only that, you also chose all the tasks, all the challenges, all the problems you are facing now. So why be upset? Why be depressed? Why feel overwhelmed? Why feel that you are not capable of managing what you have chosen? By cosmic laws, you cannot chose any task that you are incapable of solving. You cannot come to this planet, with a problem so big that you will fail. These are cosmic laws! No incarnation is permitted where you are bound to fail. Yes, there are tasks that seem very big – they may even seem “too” big, but this is only the perception you have of this issue, but not an objective evaluation of your situation and your capabilities. Let me make this clear – before you take a task upon yourself, you are the one selecting it. Then, your spirit teachers and guides discuss this issue with you, and if it is agreed that you are prepared for such a task – which means, that you are actually capable of dealing with it – then you will be asked three times, if you are willing to accept it. If you agree three times, it is yours for that lifetime. Not only that – the spirit world does not just leave you with this problem to be solved by you alone, no! They, your guides, stand by your side, together with your guardian angel, to make sure that all the necessary steps are taken for you to reach your goal. All preparations that are needed in this lifetime need to be passed, so that you can successfully solve the bigger tasks that you have chosen. So, you are never alone, your guides and guardian angel are with you every step of the way, preparing your path for you, assisting you where they can, and protecting you as much as it is necessary and possible for them, so that you can actually complete your task. However, their task is not an easy one, because you have forgotten all about this, and your chosen tasks. So, often they find that humans resist their chosen tasks, reject them – as they have their free will. However, while there is free will, there are also a system governed by cosmic laws that will bring you back on your path sooner or later, as the free will of the soul is that what truly matters, less the ever changing will of the mind. The mind keeps changing what it wants by the minute, but the soul is much more constant, and is your true essence, as such the will of the soul is the true free will. I hope you understand this well – the soul is not some strange distant force that makes you do things you do not want, to the contrary. It is the true you, and what your soul wants is what you deep down truly want. With some of the chosen tasks, you may find that hard to understand – but to explain all the reasons why you chose which task would fill books of a whole library. Yet allow me to briefly say, that even the hardest, most difficult situations and tasks that seem to be impossible to have been chosen, were chosen for some reason, so that your soul can learn and grow spiritually, advance on its path into the light. As you may have already noticed, it is especially the most difficult situations in your life that taught you the most. And each situation teaches something different. Sometimes just a different aspect of the same theme, sometimes a very different theme altogether. However, I hope you understand that the tasks you face right now, were all chosen by yourself – not by your conscious self, as there are many tasks that most humans would describe as such that “nobody in their right mind would choose such a task” – and that is so true, as it always is the mind that rebels against such lessons; instead, it was the soul that chose, for very good reasons.

If only you could learn to let go of rebelling against what you chose before you incarnated, your life would change dramatically. You would no longer waste your energy and strength on rebelling against your chosen tasks, and could focus instead on dealing with what is being presented to you in this life. You could do so not in distress, but with joy, as you would know this leads to your expansion of consciousness, to your spiritual growth. Just as it is said that Jesus accepted his fate on the cross and is said to have said that those who did this to him did not know what they were doing – indeed if those who did so had understood what Jesus said, they probably would have taken quite a different course of action, but this is not the topic of my speech to you today. This is just an example that even extreme physical suffering can be accepted instead of resisted, once it is understood why it is happening. And once it is accepted, it causes much less suffering and leads to deeper understanding, to expansion of consciousness. However, as it seems that these words might be misunderstood once again, let me make it very clear that this is no excuse to cause harm onto others, quite to the contrary – because if those who do harm onto others – just like they did with Jesus – understood that all souls are One, they would understand they are doing harm to themselves, which is something that of course makes little sense even to the mind, not just the soul. So, as One, why would you do harm onto yourself? As Jesus is reported to have said, “they do not know what they are doing”, harming oneself may be interesting for a little while on lower levels of development, but as you grow spiritually, it is something that does not belong into society, or human life, as it contradicts your very existence. Of course for a society to be sufficiently developed so that all members understand these principles, certain changes are needed, but mankind is, although slowly, on its way to reach such level. That is why sometimes we speak of and end to war and crime, because once humankind understands its own identity, this will fade away.

I have spoken much about tasks and difficulties – yet this is not the only aspect that is causing more hardship on mankind; not only the perception of being in a most difficult and hard if not impossible situation is creating a low vibration among humans. It is also the failure to understand that you are not powerless. You are not weak. You are not running out of energy. To the contrary! As I already tried to bring accross: You are quite capable of dealing with all tasks, as you can only chose those which you can deal with, and have help in the spirit world. But a second point I want to get accross is that you have a fountain of energy within. Within your heart you have a spark of light, which you can allow to grow; the more you use it, the stronger it gets. It is even limitless! Did you read this? Did you understand this? Yes, dearest friends on earth, I said you have a limitless fountain of energy within yourself! Start to use it – it is your light within your heart, which is also love, universal love – love towards All-That-Is, towards yourself, those around you, your family, friends, even those who do not like you, those who hate you because they do not yet understand the most basic cosmic law of All-Is-One. If you understand that law well, you cannot do harm to anyone, you can only want the best for them – crime, hate, envy, war would be a thing of the past. Learn to first love yourself, as that is often where the problems start. If even you cannot love yourself, how can you expect others to love you? That is why we speak of universal, unconditional love. That means, without any conditions! Love yourself, the way you are. If there are parts of your character or your body which you do not like, learn to love them anyway. Love is acceptance, and once you can accept yourself the way you are, you can also much easier accept the tasks you have chosen, and as such walk your spiritual path with joy and with the knowledge that you can deal with everything, you have the power, the strength, the energy and all the help you need. You may find this incredible – but dearest friends, this fountain of energy exists. Without it, your body would be without life. Without it, you could not love anyone. Without it, you would cease to exist. Light, universal love, is the basis for all existance. It is time to make more use of it, spread more light, more love, around the world, beginning with yourself, expaning to those near you, and reaching out to the entire mankind, connecting with all the other parts of yourself. And do not worry, it is indeed limitless! It is the point that connects you to the source, to God. And as God is limitless, so is this spark of light within you. I understand this is difficult for you to understand because in this incarnation you cannot see anything that is limitless, everything in your world has a beginning and an end, everything has limits. But this is only so in your soul’s playground, on Mother Earth. The creation is without limits, and so is the creator. And as you are connected with the creator, through this spark of divine light within, you can never deplete this resource. As said above, to the contrary! The more you let it flow, the stronger it gets, as this spark is like a little whole in a peace of paper – the more you try to get through this little whole, the bigger it may become – therefore, your connection with God strengthens and more light, more love, can flow.

So, my dearest friends – if you understand all that I have said today, and can find the truth in these words, can you see that negative thoughts, pessimism, depressions, hopelessness and similar thoughts and feelings are out of place? This is a fantastic time in which you live, a time that gives you so many wonderful opportunites, which have not been seen in thousands of years, as you are entering the New Age. Enjoy this time, be happy you are able to be alive, to be incarnated, at this very special time! Be happy – as strange as this may still sound to you – that you have so many tasks that you can deal with! Because this is a phase in which you can actually deal with more than usual, which is why so many are faced with more than what they are used to! There is more help in form of spirit guides, angels, and special energies coming to you than you have possibly ever seen – not just in this lifetime, but for a very long time. Make best use of this opportunity, and focus on what needs to be done, realize that the problems in life are not there to make life impossible or hard on you – they are there to allow you to learn, to grow spiritually, to expand your consciousness. As this is something wonderful, learn to deal with these tasks with less resistance, and with more joy.

Be blessed – literally! May these blessings help you on your path, and with understanding these words written here today. Amen.
