Spiritual evolution is due to only your own efforts. No one else can do it for you. Certainly information and guidance can be gotten from a teacher or group. How many times have you listened to or read words from a spiritual teacher that really resonated with you, as if you already knew that particular information? That is because you do know it on some level, and just needed to be reminded.
In the end, you alone are in charge of your journey. Certainly it can be helpful to expose yourself
to a variety of teachings and processes.
These teachings should emphasize giving you tools that you can embrace
and use to your advantage. Healing work with a practitioner can also be helpful, as long as you do not depend on the healer too much. That is why I assign every client of mine some homework to do in between sessions. This ultimately puts the burden for the healing on them and not on me.
This past week
I received an inappropriate and nasty e-mail from a long time reader of this
blog. This person seems to think that
George Kavassilas and I have been promising some kind of magic formula for a
person’s evolution, and that we have failed in this regard. I can honestly say that if someone takes all of the information we have put out there and
makes a really good effort with the practices, that evolution will happen. Needless to say, the person in question is
disturbed and unbalanced and seriously needs some help. This is not the first time that I have received an inappropriate message from this person, but this time was the worst.
Getting back to the topic at hand, this also applies if you are involved in a relationship or a spiritual group. In a recent class that I taught, a participant asked if she and her new partner could evolve together spiritually. She was quite disappointed when I said no, because of the above reasons. Each must do their own work independently, and if they keep pace with each other, great, but that rarely happens as far as I have observed. This is quite common with spiritual power couples running organizations, too.
Back in the 90’s when I was involved with several of these groups, the theory that was promoted was that the one holding the higher vibration and doing their work could gradually raise up the other of a lower vibration. In actuality, the one of the lower vibration can start to shatter energetically when constantly exposed to a higher vibration that they cannot keep up with. The end result is not a pretty picture.
So when you hear that “we” are ascending, expanding, transitioning to 5 D, that just isn’t true. Individuals may be doing that, but not the group as a whole. Higher vibrating group members cannot lift up lower vibrating ones. Each must do their own work.
I have written before about the splitting of the world. This is still going on. Those who are evolving can sense that they are in a different reality than those who are not. It can make interpersonal interactions problematic at times, especially when interacting with friends and loved ones. I encourage all of you to stay the course and do not get caught up in the doings of others. Be your own teacher and guide. You will profit greatly in the end!
