Samuel: “Being ready to receive instruction is a quick process today as you swiftly fill the energetic body with blue light, and shortly a deep connection will be fully complete. Allow yourself to drift and be infused with my energy -- that of Teacher Samuel.
“It has been a while since I have spoken with you, but I come today with gladness of heart and tidings of joy. You are learning how to bring yourself back quickly to a point of balance, a point of openness and a point of centeredness when yourself (has gone) adrift.
“Yes, you see it as slow, as at times this imbalance may go on for a day or two before your recognition of it, but think back to years gone, when you were entirely unaware for months, or even years at a time. And think, too, to the struggles you had in more recent years bringing within this center took perhaps hours, rather than a few minutes that you are able to achieve now.
“One of your principle lessons at this point in time is learning to achieve that centeredness and that balance when you are in company with others, for if you walk into such a situation then you retain a centeredness for a while, but slowly it starts to drift as you lose your sense of being, and old processes take over once more. In truth all it takes is a thought to the Divine, (to) the silence within yourself, to bring you back.
“But it is not always so simple, for still this takes a few moments of concentration, and you are aware that this may make others stop and ponder at you when you suddenly go quiet. It is acceptable in many situations to say that you are purely taking a moment in order to re-ground yourself, and most people will understand without concern. But in situations where you feel this may lead to conflict, if you have fear and doubt, then excuse yourself. Make that trip to the bathroom and spend a few moments there instead. There is always space available to you if you choose to take it.
“The healing of the world is accelerated through the healing of each and every one of you, and the healing of an individual is mainly accelerated within the calm presence of their own Self. Nothing will have a greater effect upon your life.
“Let yourself Be. Do not move to change things, only move to be fully aware, and fully within your Self. And these are muscles like all else. The more they are used, and the more they are trained, the easier this becomes.
“Let us take a moment now together. Breathe deeply. And as you exhale, let all things that are not of perfection within your body drain from you. Let all thoughts that are not of perfection drain from you. Let all emotions come to rest, and Be . . . with your Self.
“This is the state of altered awareness, of stillness. And in time it may become normal awareness.
“I am glad to sit by your side once more, and share with your company. Breathe in the light of your own essence. And allow the joy of that being to radiate, filling the reaches of space with your unique print, and joining with the celestial, cosmic dance of all Being. We are not so different us teachers from you humans. We too, have our own song, and we, too, seek to ever grow and to learn.
“We may be on different stages upon our evolutionary history, but no stage is better than another, for each are needed at their own specific time, in their own specific place. And with you, I sing praise to the Creator, for the miracle of this Universe, this Totality, of this Life, and this Be-ing.
“You see that we are old friends. I may not speak often, but I often come to visit. You feel better within yourself now. That is good. I conclude my discussion for this moment, and leave you to sit a while longer, in the still quiet calm, and I will sit with you.”
