Separation from the Darkness Outside and Inside

August 26, 2010

We’re in the Time of Separation, but we often forget the most important part of what we’re separating from. It isn’t in the last analysis a separation from other people. It’s a separation from the tendencies within ourselves that are holding us back.

According to the sources we follow,  the rising energies are triggering incomplete issues to bubble up to the surface, hopefully to be cleared once and for all. Says Archangel Michael through Ronna Herman:

“There is an intense polarization building between the various factions, not just in isolated places around the world, but in every country, involving every race, culture, religion and political affiliation. We have told you that the chasm between the Light and the shadow lands is widening, and it is very apparent from both a lofty and earthly viewpoint.

“We see clearly the areas that are being bathed in the Living Light, thanks to you, the faithful Sentinels of Light. We also see the swirling whirlwinds of negativity and chaos building in a multitude of countries, provinces, cities, towns, neighborhoods and even among families around the world.” (1)

Emmanuel also tells us that the separation is a natural part of the Ascension process:

“Division has started at third-dimensional level, and the groups of frequencies present in your plane of existence are being regrouped. From now on, you will be seeing many signs of division and regrouping manifesting in your reality.

“Companies will split, friends will stop seeing each other, families will separate, groups will be divided, etc. And at the same time you will be witnessing the absolute opposite; you will join new groups, you will feel closer than ever to your loved ones, family and friends.

“This change is neither positive nor negative. It is existential. This is a natural step in the mass-ascension process.” (2)

The ascended master Hilarion advises us that from now on all our incompletions, resentments and other stuck places will start to manifest so that we can release them and create space for Light to fill. (I certainly hope that’s what’s happening for me.)

“Many issues and long unresolved problems are coming up for review, resolution and release. This is going to continue occurring as the days go by for it is necessary that all energies that are not of the highest Light be resolved in order to let more Light in. It is a time of much Human drama as interpersonal relationships make adjustments along with all the body adjustments.

“Each of you is helping by trying to be mirrors for each other so that this can occur, so that all core issues can finally be released once and for all.” (3)

Back in 2008, the Hathors warned us that, during this Time of Separation, we would see a tug of war in which fear, paranoia, and irrational behaviors might temporarily predominate. Our sources have known this time would come for many years. And it has come.

“It shall be increasingly difficult to perpetuate the old world in the same ways it has been perpetuated. And by this we mean both the old world of your civilization and the old world of your own personal lives. As the wave of spiritual evolution accelerates, those who insist upon living in the old paradigms will find it increasingly difficult.

“Fear and paranoia will be the tone of the day, from the minutest aspects of personal life to international relations. This tug of war between that which wishes to remain locked in place, tugging against those forces that wish to open the world to new possibilities shall indeed become a surrealistic experience.

“The evolutionary pressures upon individuals and society are extraordinary, and those individuals who are less centered (psychologically imbalanced) may experience an increase in irrational behaviors. Many countries around the world are already seeing a rise in irrational acts and unusual crimes.” (4)

Archangel Gabriel tells us that inner shifts are what’s required.

“In order to create this miraculous new world, it requires inner shifts of consciousness and healing of all that’s not in harmony with this higher energy frequency. The need for a shift can be seen in every area of the world around you as the old ways destabilize, crumble and fall away.” (5)

The Pleiadian High Council, speaking through Lauren Gorgo, also reminds us that the most important separation will occur in consciousness.

“The prophesied time for the separation of realities has been talked about in various spiritual circles and communities of new thought, however, is mostly misunderstood.  The separation of worlds as you will come to experience, is not a physical separation, but a separation in consciousness.

“This will however lead to a seeming segregation of sorts, in that the communities of like mind will begin to come together, rather they will gravitate toward one another.

“As this happens, those who are operating on the new timeline, that of the emanations from the great central sun, will begin to step fully into their ascended or Christed consciousness.” (6)

The much deeper meaning of darkness is not that which we see in Islamophobes or Facebook haters. It is the darkness within ourselves.  If we remember that darkness exists inside and outside us, then we can extend SaLuSa’s meaning when he says:

“The dark are losing their ability to prevent you from discovering your true Self, and instead of separating you from your Light, will find that it is you who separate from them.” (7)

We are separating from the dark around us but from the darkness within ourselves as well.

Demagoguery exists on the right and left. Demagoguery exists inside us. But demagoguery does not exist in the center that Buddha called “the Middle Way.” It does not exist in the quiet void that Lao Tzu called “the Great Tao.” It does not exist in the windless place where Krishna said the Light could be seen. And it does not exist for the individual whom Jesus described as caring naught for the morrow but seeking instead God and His righteousness.

It doesn’t matter a tad to me whether others believe in celestials, masters, and galactics or not. These are the messages that have guided us to this place and that will help us find our way home. Let others follow their own guidance, as free will dictates.

Remaining in this central place and turning aside from intolerance and hate is the work of the shift that the whole planet is experiencing right now. Let those who wish to harm their neighbor find a place among others of their kind. We are separating from those impulses in ourselves and from those who will not wean themselves from this style of living.

    You have all my encouragement, Steve! I love your lucid and humorous style of writing, your deep understanding of what is happening now on the planet in terms of consciousness, and your great talent for clearly expressing your thoughts and feelings. Thank you so much for all that you do to bring peace to Earth! Beverly

    Following your posts on Google Reader doesn’t allow for votes or comments, but this article brings me here to say thanks, Steve, for all you do. I spend much of my day trying to keep up with your feed. Your last paragraph here is so potent it bears repeating again and again.

    “Remaining in this central place and turning aside from intolerance and hate is the work of the shift that the whole planet is experiencing right now.

      Thank you, Brenda.

      Hearing what you say does give me a boost of energy. It’s often said that the dark feed on fear. Perhaps the light feeds on encouragement.

    Thanks Steve for all you share…….and many of us feel we are out on a “skinny branch,” but we are being/doing the best we know and are shown within. Blessings and love to us all. Jean

    This is good to read, because the more we think about what is happening to us now, the more we go in silence to hear our inner voice, and if we are on the right track we are going to hear forgotten truths about us.
    I was inspired this morning and a little thought ran through my mind and here it is; I want to share it with you:

    For as long as I can remember I consider my life as a normal one, with the same wishes as every other child; but only one thing made a difference in me from my friends and siblings. I would spend most of my days admiring nature, loving nature; the moon and the sky, the trees and the sun filtering its rays through them, and every little creature and bird that would cross my sight.
    I had the need to express myself making drawings of that nature that captivated my eyes and heart. Those wonderful shapes and colors, even the sounds of nature and the wind touching my face would make me feel like I was part of everything around me and that I was floating in the middle of all that beauty and felt like I was being embrace by mother nature arms, rocking me while I was floating in the middle of the air. All of this could be compared as the same way when my mother would embrace me with her love; just the same feeling.
    But growing up was like leaving away that nature’s embrace and disconnection with it was obvious. Those feelings started to fade away, as life started to have another meaning, which now I consider a totally different one than in childhood. I guess we all understand this as a normal occurrence in our lives as we grow and start to learn about the birds and the bees, and “the” you and me; but the feelings of the past in my childhood were nothing compared as the ones I have in my adult life.
    If we compare how we felt in those days to the ones we are experiencing now, I honestly believe that our desires and wishes to go back and feel that magical embrace of nature would be our grandest wish, but I know that if we start to want and feel those moments again, all we have to do is go back to nature and embrace her back into our lives; and this would be the good part of all this…
    We would go back Home! ; To where Father-Mother God’s love has always been. We would go back and be united with our only truth; the one that has always been. Nature’s Truth. We would know that we are children from Father-Mother earth, born from nature’s Love. We would understand that we are “little sparks of love” who forgot who they were, when they decided to travel into their future to experience a different ride, to then find that that future was created hostile and full of emptiness and love resonance void. Here Love became forgotten, as a material reality emerged in our lives. We forgot who the wind was, or the moon and the stars. We forgot our friends in the wild and the trees in the woods. We forgot who nurture us at the beginning when our little sparks of love were bouncing and flickering like little stars in the sky. We forgot that embrace of love who taught us the truth at the beginning of our lives. But on our way home we will also know that…
    Mother Nature has not forgotten about us. She still knows who we are. She still cares about her little sparkles of light and with her love resonance; she wants her sparkles to ignite into life again; and to awaken from that hostile empty love resonance void world and to burst again with all their love’s energy that their hearts may have. She wants us to remember where we came from. She wants us to remember who we are. She wants us to be comfortable, in abundance, united and in resonance with the all that has ever existed and will exist. She is desperately shaking us. She wants us to awake and find ourselves, to fly high in dimensions for she knows we will soon ascend.
    So you see, going back to nature is not going back to our past, it is going to the now moment which always has, this will let us know and remember who we are, where we came from and where we will go from here in our future lives.
    We have collected beautiful white pearls on our way, but also some dark,, even thou both of them have been of great values and great teachings in our lives.
    I hope we always keep them tight in our hands and hearts as a reminder to not forget LOVE never again.

    Steve, What a wonderful, heartfelt and personal statement. Such sharing adds a dimension to your site which is greatly appreciated.

    For me the essence is “The much deeper meaning of darkness is not that which we see in Islamophobes or Facebook haters. It is the darkness within ourselves.” It requires constant vigilance within my own life.

    I have long believed that the true warrior only does battle within. Love, wisdom and forgiveness are our weapons; joy and a sense of humor our uniform; innocence our armor – the saving grace. Experience is the great battleground; contemplation the higher ground from which the battleground is viewed. Choice is the nature of the battle. And not choosing is a choice. That is what I have learned.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks, Doug. Sometimes I feel like I’m out here on a skinny branch and hope I’m doing what I signed up to do!!!!
