Greetings dear ones from the Arcturian Group.  All is proceeding nicely in the evolution of your world.  The Light of new and higher frequencies  is now streaming in, strengthening your ability to see through current events and revaluate your priorities in new and higher ways.  You are doing a fine job.  When a soul chooses to spiritually evolve,  that person’s Higher Self is then enabled to  draw to them whatever necessary spiritual lessons or awareness the individual is ready for.
Allowing yourselves to  listen and be guided by your intuition  is a step most of you would not of taken even a few years ago.  Examine who you were 1, 5, or even 10 years back and you will see how your beliefs and understandings of truth have changed.  You may think; “This is just experience and age”.  No, this is evolution dear ones, for there are  many who have been on earth a long time but still choose to live  locked in self made boxes of unawareness, refusing to even peek out a bit.   Self examination  will demonstrate how you have unfolded (through intention)  into new awareness  without even realizing it.  The world  often holds ignorant concepts of what spiritual awakening is–imagining it as a shaft of bright light accompanied by a sudden  powerful energy that knocks and individual  to the ground and they are then awakened. This is the stuff of fairy  tales and “saints” lives–not the reality.  Spiritual evolution is  a gradual unfolding process as an unprepared physical body could not survive an intense sudden intake of higher frequency energy, they would be  incapable of handling it.   The profound experiences that some indeed may have, are the fruitage of an attained state of consciousness–hard work done in previous lifetimes.
Spiritual evolution starts with a sense of  dissatisfaction–those things that once seemed important and loved, simply no longer resonate in the same way.   This in turn, leads to an intellectual pursuit of knowledge, much pondering and re-examination of one’s belief system, and an interest and participation in whatever books and classes resonate with the students new interests.  Classes may consist of simple bible study or metaphysics (whatever is necessary to draw a seeker to his next level).  This phase is usually very intense–groups may be joined with like minded people for discussion and every heretofore unknown idea seems new and exciting.   After whatever length of time is necessary (different with every individual),  the student will  shift  once again  to a new level and  begin to realize that he must integrate what he has learned and so begins practices such as  meditation, and the working with metaphysical tools such as crystals, oils, sound etc.  .  He begins to recognize and let go of whatever erroneous concepts and beliefs he may still hold and starts to live  the new and higher ways he has discovered.  At first  practice and change  may be a struggle as old habits tend to die hard.  He will still interpret truth in the only way he  knows at this time–the third dimensional level– and so begins to  practice the ideas of  universal love in  “hands on” ways. With time, loving service  becomes his state of consciousness and he works hard to fix the errors he sees.
A good example of how consciousness unfolds it to examine a simple topic like honesty.  At this point most of you would not even consider stealing from another.  However, in lifetimes past, stealing  was considered a right and the  only way to survive.  You see, honesty is simply a facet of an attained consciousness  of oneness even if you do not consciously understand it as this.
Metaphysics  is usually as far as most choose to evolve in one lifetime, but present times are so energetically powerful, that many have chosen to  move through any remaining stages of their evolution and move into the next and most profound level of spiritual awareness–mysticism.  In the mystical state of consciousness there is nothing that needs fixing or changing for the realization comes  that I  ALREADY AM.  Evolution now becomes ever an ever deepening journey into an  awareness of  what I AM means and is.
All truth embodied within the I AM will and must eventually be your state of consciousness because it is who and what you really are.  The releasing and clearing old physical, emotional, and mental energies is intense at this time because you have chosen to move into the higher dimensional energies and cannot take the lower ones with you.
We wish to speak of how this new wave of energy  is effecting the thinking of so many with regard to Syria.  So much of your past and present is about an “eye for an eye”,  words from the old testament of the Christian bible.  The Master Jesus some 2000 years ago, brought in a “new” testament and taught the people the truths of this new testament.  However, many still choose to follow the often mistranslated teachings of the old testament (as well as the misinterpreted teachings of many other religions), even while loudly declaring themselves to be “Christians”.  In the past, power, violence, and dominance were acceptable  solutions between differing countries… war.  As you have seen, the majority of people are no longer resonating with solutions that consist of war and violence.  People are beginning to awaken to the realization that they have for too long witnessed one fruitless war after another initiated by those who stood to enrich themselves in some way without regard to those actually doing the fighting and under the guise of freedom and security.
Mankind is waking up dear ones, and this is how it appears.  The world is discovering  that it no longer resonates with ideas born of energies represent duality and separation regardless of how these ideas are promoted–you have  evolved.  This how it works  and it often takes a great deal of  courage to step out and be separate, but always remember–you are never alone.
Send unconditional  Light to those people and places that suffer.  Activate  and flow the transmuting energy  of the violet flame and  know absolutely that–I AM  the dictator, I AM the CEO of unenlightened and self serving corporations,  I AM the  abuser and all those choosing to  live in and of the shadow.  Your recognition of another’s innate Divinity even when they do not,  helps to  awaken them if they are in any way receptive and even when they are not, helps to lift the world.
Many experiences that appear outwardly  to be  horrendous for some individual or group, are actually  experiences chosen on a soul level  by those individuals or groups in order to bring about a final closure to some karmic debt and at the same time serve the world through  bringing about more awareness and hopefully change of some sort.  This can be observed with what is happening with regard to the sexual violence upon and disregard of women in general.  Much of this was allowed under the banner of tradition and  was considered acceptable behavior. However,  world view, even in many “un-evolved societies”  is  no longer tolerating these unenlightened behaviors and is demanding change.
Be gentle with yourselves dear ones, spend time in nature, spend time quietly within your own Silence, and know that your journey is well underway. Once an individual decides to evolve, there is nothing you need to do.  Your job is to BE.   There comes a time when the  major and often painful clearings are finished and you can begin to live, move, and be,  within the silent awareness and confidence of love and joy.
State the intention that from now on you choose that your spiritual lessons come easily and gently. Intentions carry the weight of your creative power as Divine Beings of Light having human experiences within a veil of forgetfulness.
