16. – Letting Go

An important element in the preparation of the human being on the spiritual path is a change in the attitude of the one who wishes to go this path. The spiritual path is not a race or competition, and spiritual goals cannot be reached by willfulness. It takes a lot of patience, but another factor comes in: Humans need to learn to let go, try to be less striving for a goal because of a mental conviction, instead act out of an inner wish to serve the creator and according to his will.

This letting go has additional aspects in other areas of existence and spiritual advancement, and has effects on many behavioral patterns and actions. This includes bringing letting go also into healing processes, the purpose of guiding light through the body should not be the elimination of the physical ailment, but light work should be used to “enlighten” the problem to clear up the causes in order to allow solving them for neutralizing disharmonies and getting ahead on the spiritual path. Through light work letting go can be practiced by letting go of the reasons that motivated the light work – the pain or disease – and making spiritual development the goal by recognizing disease or pain as a manifested signal from the soul. Simpler said, letting go could be the letting go of obvious motivations like “I have this pain in my body, to get rid of this pain I am doing some light work”. Whoever thinks this way needs to understand that light work can reduce physical ailments, but the purpose of light work for healing is not the reduction of symptoms, but going to the cause and dissolving it as part of the spiritual development. When someone continues to use light work only for reducing symptoms, then real healing cannot take place because a change in attitude has not taken place and new problems have to keep returning as physical ailments, to ensure that the human being recognizes them. The purpose of light work is not to cure physical ailments, but to be an important building block for spiritual development.

The meaning of letting go can also be applied to spiritual work. Healing with light should be seen as letting go, as it is a turning the matter over to the power of light. When I talk about light work, I am not referring to an active work, but a request for the powers of the light with some help of imagination, but the actual healing work is done by the light and healing angels, not by the one picturing the light. But also during meditation letting go can be applied, let yourself be guided by your spirit guide and let go of your mind’s will, and you will experience a more wonderful and teaching meditation than one guided by mental willpower. Of course, letting go can be applied to other areas in life as well. However, it takes practice to learn to let go of your own willfulness and trust spiritual guidance.

When I talk about letting go in this chapter, this is the letting go of willfulness, the desire of the human mind to have control over everything in life. Letting go is not giving up yourself or control over your life, rather a letting go of following obvious motivations from your mind or lower emotions that are not in harmony with the spiritual development of the soul.


Address of Jul. 24, 2001: Letting Go

by archangel Michael

Greetings to you, dearest friends on earth! I join you on this day as there is so much, I dare say, too much, confusion among incarnated souls on this planet. As this situation is just the beginning of the cleansing process, much more mental restlessness can be expected. Fear these not, for they need not come to you, learn to let go of old thought patterns, let go of wanting to analyze everything, let go of thinking everything over many times, let go of the past, let go of dwelling in memories, let go of wanting to keep things the way they are – for they will be changing, regardless of whether you want them to or not, simply because things need to be in a flow, and right now this flow is accelerated due to mother earth’s transition which you are witnessing. The mental confusion is about due to this flow, this change, as earth changes, so are you all, certain old thoughts and mind patters simply surface because they get flushed out. This is nothing to really worry about, unless you insist on hanging on to those old patterns, this is why I said, “let go”. If you allow yourself to go with the flow of the new earth energies, you will see things things come and go. But those who hold on will get deeper into those thoughts, into dwelling in memories, to the point where they loose any sense of reality. While I see that there may be many who will choose to go this way, I do also see a great number of people who will see the liberation and the wonderful changes within themselves caused by this “flushing” of old energies, old thoughts. This will not only be thoughts, also emotions, but it seems that the surfacing of antiquated thoughts will be more widespread than emotions. When I say “antiquated” I’m referring to any thoughts and emotions that do not belong into the birth of this new earth, and this is not only a birth of a new earth, but also of mankind. The next about three-hundred years will see many significant changes, at the end of that cycle earth will be so different that you would find it hard to recognize. However, these changes depend on your point of view, if you could see a three dimensional earth, it would not be what you might expect, but I do not need to describe that, as there will not be any more humans on the three dimensional earth, but the four dimensional earth will be so fantastic that I cannot describe it here, for you would not believe me. I may do so at a later time, when mankind has progressed some more and things would sound less fantastic, but possible instead. I do not wish to forecast, so let me remind you of what is truly important in this essential phase of your development: LET GO! Dear friends, this is truly important, and in my opinion the most important lesson for at least the remainder of this year, for many it will be the main issue for many years to come. Greetings to you all, and be blessed! Amen. Amen. Amen.


Lesson 10: What Can We Do?

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings, my dearest friends! To many of you, a new year has begun, a strange year it is indeed as you approach what you call a new millennium. The coming two years, 1999 and 2000, are the cornerstone to the new age that many have been talking about. Many of you will face challenges that you have not even considered to be a possibility, which will be part of a great cleansing process to which the entire planet will be subjected to. However, you may want to know what you can do to prepare yourself so that these challenges can be met as easily as possible. My dear friends, in this message I want to point out what can be done by human beings incarnated on earth as a preparation.

First of all, as it was pointed out in the previous message, you would not be incarnated at this time if you were not prepared and a part of the global changes. You have gone through thousands of incarnations, waited patiently for this one to come. Now is the time, a major leap in earth’s energy level is beginning, you can do your part to keep your balance and “ride the wave” or stumble and have to wait for another great wave to come like this one – which would have to be done on another planet. Again at this point I need to point out that you should not fear the earth changes, as they are the beginning of a great new era, and this new beginning has been compared to giving birth – it is something wondrous, a miracle if you want, but nothing you should be scared of. Without birth, nothing new could come, and extinction would be certain. Most humans look forward to the event of birth, it is a joyful, yet often painful, moment. Accept the pain, and look forward to what comes out of this birth – a new age full of what you may call miracles and wonders. The next level will bring new tasks, but my dear friends, life will be quite different from what you are used to. Most of what you despise of earth life will be gone, I am talking about hunger and drought, hate and crime. To some, it may seem like paradise, however this is not quite accurate if you mean heaven. I am telling you all this because you should be joyous and be looking forward to the earth changes, as they are like going into labor for the new age. It is a great time you live in, free yourself from fear, let go of anxiety, enjoy the opportunity you have been given and make the best of it. That is why I want to give you some more advice on how to prepare. Well, my dear friends, what I have been talking about all along is part of this preparation, what Emanuel brought to you in his “Path of Light” is part of it, as well as all the other information and insight that we have brought. But now is the time to concentrate on some essential elements that you need to consider if you desire to be well prepared for this beginning important phase of transition.

First of all, it would be advisable to change your attitude towards your own life and your position in it. You need to become aware, that you are an eternal soul, which seeks to make experiences to learn in order to grow. This growth is about to make a leap, you can pass on to the next level as if you pass your final exams of one grade so you can step up to the next grade in this school of life, whose classroom “earth” you are all attending class at. Become aware, that you are this soul, which wants to learn, and that is why you are encountering problems in your life – at this time, probably increasingly more than ever before in your lifetime. However, it also needs to be realized that these problems are not there to give you trouble and hinder you, they are the key to your success. This, again, is like your schools for children – you need to get your problems and learn by solving them. If you try to avoid these problems, they pile up and you will need to do extra time, and in some cases, you may need to “repeat a grade”. Once you realize the true meaning of all the problems around you, this enables you to accept the challenges of life, resolve your problems instead of trying to avoid them, and this is a major step. Also, it would be wise to let go of getting too much emotionally involved with your problems, they are not worth the extra energy. This does not mean you should suppress your emotions, but it may be good to work on the right amount of emotion for each of your situations. At times, it is important to remind yourself of the big picture, that life is like a school we are all attending, and you are simply playing a role on this planet using the mask of the physical body which you can see when you look in the mirror. But just like that mirror image is not really you, neither is the physical body. It is simply the vehicle you need to accomplish the task your soul needs to fulfill. Now is also the time to quit going the easy path, trying to avoid problems at any cost. As I said, problems are the key to learning and learning is what you are here for. As Emanuel already said in “The Path Of Light”, the underlying key lesson to all human souls is to learn unconditional love. You can get closer to this goal by accepting your life, by accepting your problems and challenges, by letting go of hate and fear, sadness and anger. Regular use of the triple light protection helps to connect yourself with life and your environment in love and light, allowing your sense of unconditional love to grow. And last but not least, be patient with yourself. Your soul has been patient with you, as you went through thousands of incarnations to get to where you are now. You had your share of setbacks, but even setbacks bring a new lesson learned and therefore are not in vain. Now be patient with yourself, but persistent. Become aware of the spirit friends on your side, your spirit guide and your guardian angel, although you may not be able to see nor hear them, in moments of silence you can learn to hear their voices of wisdom and wonderful advice. Greetings to you all, my dear friends, and fear not, you are not alone in your struggle, God is fair and just and has provided for your guidance. Be blessed and be in peace. Greetings. Amen. Amen. Amen.


Lesson 7: Special Times, Special Energies

by archangel Zadkiel

Greetings, my dear friends! On earth you are nearing a celebration that marks the birth of a Christ, it has not only the meaning of the birth of Jesus, but the time just before Christmas also marks the beginning of a special phase for earth and mankind. The time period between now and around Easter is a time when earth passes through an area in space that has an impact on all life due to the special qualities of this part of the Galaxy. This energy rich region has different qualities than the other parts of the Galaxy. There is a counterpart to this within this solar system, which is another energy region that earth passes through six months later. These regions help the seasons on earth – the upcoming region helps in spring on the northern hemisphere, essentially helps with nature so that the trees awaken, the flowers begin to rise out of their seed, the hibernating animals awaken, the migrating birds begin their journey, and so on. The counterpart region does the same for the southern hemisphere, when the northern goes from summer into fall. However, I did not want to discuss the much more complicated forces behind the seasons that may be interesting to you but are not what I need to speak to you about on this day. What needs to be realized, is that earth is entering a special region in space these days – but this time, it will be much more special than it has ever been in recent history of mankind. As this is the time of transformation for earth and mankind, we are looking at a greater impact of this energy field than any human has seen. The majority of these effects will be non-physical, but some effects will be seen on the physical plane, too. You are already seeing erratic climate behavior, but this is only the beginning. All these processes are part of the global cleansing and changes through the transformation. Before any fear comes up in any of you, I must point out again that the significance of these events lies in the non-physical effects, the physical effects are nothing you need to fear. They may bring hardship to some, as part of the path those humans chose so they can work off lessons and karma through these experiences. Out of this hardship to some will grow a task for others to show their will to help each other. Some of this has already been seen, but other events will follow in the upcoming months. Now allow me to come to the part that is really of importance in all this: Besides this being a time of global cleansing, the cleansing will effect more than the physical, there are many astral aspects on earth that need to be cleansed energetically. Many areas are full of emotions of fear, especially the many former as well as current battlegrounds, sorrow and desperation. Some of these negative energies are buried within the earth’s outer layers and are beginning to emerge. Nature itself is depleted from positive energies from the many decades of abuse by humans. Therefore, this is a time when earth begins to cleanse itself from these energies. At the same time, this will be a time of great challenge to many humans for two reasons. One has been mentioned before, the time of transformation gives humans the opportunity to work out many old problems, get over a lot of old karma. Therefore, this will be a time where many feel that there is a lot going on in their life, some may feel that it is even too much (although it is not). The other reason is, that some of these emerging energies will pose an additional challenge during the time they are set free before being transformed into light. To offset this challenge, you can however help earth and mankind – and yourself – by working together to send light out every day, at least once, better twice, or even better, as often as you can think of, to the earth. My advice is to use the exercise that Emmanuel has given (Chapter 4.3), that would be a very suitable way, although there are others that work well, too. It is important, though, to use the white light for any such exercise, for it is best in dissolving the negative energies I have mentioned. My dear friends, I hope I have not caused fear – these energies may be strong and negative and cause a risk to those that open themselves up to such levels of energies through e.g. depression, if you are aware of the light in your heart and use this light to shine it out, and especially if you use the triple light protection (Emmanuel Chapter 4.1) regularly, then there is nothing you need to fear. I have spoken about these events so you can help earth and mankind in handling these occurrences. As a part of mankind, as a soul that is connected to this planet earth, you are able to help in a wonderful way. There are angels, too, that help with the process, but they need you, too – because when you help, there are special angels called that assist you – so it is not only you who helps, but all the helpers that you can call to assist and help, too. Therefore, the help you do is multiplied, and a lot more is done than you may believe. You may think, how can thinking about light help. My dear friends, the non-physical light is something wonderful. It is a blessing from God, and you can use as much of it as you want, because you have a never ending supply of it in your heart. The more you use it, the more it can flow and get brighter. You may not be able to see the effects, but they can be very significant, especially when you understand that when you learn to use this energy for a positive purpose (use for a negative purpose is not possible), then you will be assisted by angels of light who help you to bring the light where you intend to send it. The more noble the purpose, the stronger the support by angels of light. This light works by changing subtle energy levels. Since everything is connected, if you change the energy on the astral level, this will also have an effect on the physical level, although not immediate. At this point I need to remind you that you should not pursue a certain purpose when using this light except to raise the energy level, because you cannot and will not be allowed to use this energy for your personal benefit or for a purpose that you may think is good – allow the light itself to unfold the divine plan. Allow it to work, it is a blessing, do not try to change it to something you might want for one reason or another. Letting go of control over the effect of this light is necessary, otherwise you are blocking the flow. I know that you can all learn to do this, otherwise I would not be talking about this here. Fear not the earth changes, fear not the changes in your life, they are both parallel changes for a new beginning which will bring you joy. Be brave enough to accept the challenges of life, trust in the strength of God, trust in the power of the light, become aware of the spirit guide and guardian angel on your side – and you can let go of all fear and begin to do what you came here for. Life may not be easy, but use this opportunity to learn what needs still to be learned, to overcome the problems that have mounted up in front of you, many souls have waited for this time, this time of opportunity, which is also why earth sees more incarnated human souls at this time than ever before. Be blessed, be greeted, Love and Light to you! Amen. Amen. Amen.
