Lessons from Above

Yesterday, I received a phone call from someone interested in ascension, people who can communicate with Higher Beings, and whether or not December 21, 2012 made any real difference. My answer is that, clearly, yes, December 21, 2012 made a very clear difference for me, as that really is the turning point at which regular ascension through the crown chakra to the astral realms seems to have become readily possible for me. So, I share with you the gift I received from December 21, 2012:

Lessons From Above
How the Shift in Consciousness
Of December 21, 2012
Changed My Life

Lesson One: The Shift

So, going into December 21, 2012, I had this mindset that we human beings would be making a shift in consciousness, as though this was something we were capable of achieving on our own, or with God’s help, but still something we worked on. (For more on this, please check out my novel: Exodus 2012: A Mission to Save the Earth, available on amazon.com)

What I discovered as I meditated on 12/21/12, was that we were invited to ascend.

“This is an invitation to ascend.”

When we ask/choose to ascend, the gateway of consciousness is now open to a higher, “heavenly” realm, where we will encounter Helpers, Beings of Light who will communicate with us. They will answer our spiritual questions as needed to help us fulfill a higher purpose in life.

The Shift is not something we do; rather, the Shift is the Opening of the Gateway of Consciousness, and all who are ready to ascend are welcome to ascend. If you have ascended before, then this is easy. If you have not yet ascended, the invitation is to begin a spiritual practice which will take you there.

Lesson Two: Ascending

The next day, I felt the nudge to meditate, and each time I did, and even when not meditating, but just going about my day, if I thought about ascension, then my consciousness ascended and I was aware of the Helpers, who may also be called Friends of Light.

“You are welcome here. You are welcome anytime.”

The Gateway is open so that we can attain a higher consciousness, with access to help from the Friends of Light at anytime. Some people might choose to call them angels or angelic beings or part of the host of heaven. Others might choose to call them Spirit Guides. Whatever your religion, they are waiting for you to help you.

“All you have to do is to focus your intention on ascension, and your attention on your Brow Chakra. There you will ascend.”

Lesson Three: The Experience of Ascension

After ascending this new gateway a few times, I found myself seeing the setting change, from a peaceful place where Light Friends were sitting and meditating, to stepping stones made of puffy white clouds in a blue sky, and I was hopping from cloud to cloud (not very realistic in this 54-year-old body back here on earth). My being was light and maneuverable in a different way than on earth, but what struck me was that the ‘reality’ of this setting changed as soon as I had a different image in my mind.

So, I asked: “Is it always like that up here?” I was thinking that my image of heaven was kind of solid compared to that, and not quite so instantly changeable.

“Yes, it is. This reality is made of shared consciousness. We often agree on what kind of setting we prefer, and share that, but new ones and visitors often come to play. When we choose a setting, our consciousness creates it instantaneously up here, and we can do that together.”

Lesson Four: The Reason for Ascension

“Why do we get to ascend whenever we would like?”

“So that we can help you; we are here to guide you into a higher consciousness, and so that you may one day permanently ascend. Before that, you have much work to do to transform yourself, as well as to help others.

Each moment that you need help with self-transformation, we will be available.”

Lesson Five: The Nature of God and The Universe

“What is this realm?” I asked.

“This realm is a higher level of consciousness. All realms of consciousness have varying degrees of revelation of the Light, the True Consciousness, The Revelation of God.”

I asked: “Who is God? Or should I ask ‘What is God?’”

“God is the Unrevealed.”

“The Unrevealed?” I struggled with that one.

“If God is unrevealed, then how do we get to know God? And why is God so into revelation, at least from a Judeo-Christian perspective?” My struggles began to be articulated.

“The Revelation of God is through the Spirit, the Aum, the Word, the vibratory essence of Creation. That is the presence, or ongoing revelation of God in the universe. The expression of the Word, the Spirit, the Aum, happens in many ways through ‘inanimate’ beings, events, and energies.

“The Revelation of God in human beings is often referred to as Christ-Consciousness or Buddha-Consciousness. It may also be called Consciousness of the Light, or Light Consciousness, although it has many dimensions, including heart-consciousness, spiritual-consciousness, and Incarnation through activity.”

“If God is the Unrevealed, then how do we get to be with God?”

“When we learn to vibrate at a higher frequency, we will all one day be ready to let go of the illusion of separation, and the revelation will no longer be necessary, because we will be in the still, calm center which is God. Go to the still, calm, center, and there you will find God. The Alpha and the Omega refer to the end of this realm of revelation, where darkness interplays with Light, and so the True Light is often hidden, until we learn to receive the Revelation of the Light.

“In the meantime, people often play with shadows, but you can be playing with rainbows. Ascension and revelation are about playing with the light, the Rainbow Light of God.”


About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
