Follow Your Heart to Know What Is Right for You

Joanna: “So how should we regard channeling to get the most of it?”

Alariel: “In three main ways.

Firstly, as just a “second opinion,” a different viewpoint to lay alongside your own perceptions.

Secondly, as an opportunity to expand your consciousness and explore new perspectives.

Thirdly, as a way of increasing the flow of information between soul and personality, making this link stronger and more effective.

Channeling can open up new horizons, new ways of looking at the world. It should be nourishing and empowering, and strengthen your capacity to obtain inner guidance. However, if anyone is using the channeling they receive from someone else as a complete replacement for their own inner guidance, they are misusing the process. Channeling was never intended for this purpose, and your own inner guidance should remain paramount.”

- Angel Alariel (Channeled in the book “Beyond Limitations – The Power of Conscious Co-Creation”)

“Esther had once asked me what I had learned from those experiences with the Ouija board. And I told her I learned that there was an intelligence out there that was wanting and willing to communicate with us, and that some appeared to be as dumb as the dumbest of us, and some as bright or brighter than the brightest of us, and that although I didn’t really understand it, I did accept the experience as valid because it had happened to me.”

- Jerry Hicks (YouTube Video: Seth Speaks – Abraham Hicks)

“It is when you are surrounded by lower consciousness that you will benefit more from remaining with your individual understandings, and when you are surrounded by higher consciousness that you receive greater benefit from surrender. It may, therefore, be wise to seek beings of high consciousness. I cannot overemphasize the importance of the company you keep.”

- Conversations with God, Book 3

Neale Donald Walsch: “I thought there was no such thing as wrong or right.”

God: “There isn’t. There is only what serves you, and what does not. The terms “right” and “wrong” are relative terms, and I use them that way when I use them at all.”

- Conversations with God, Book 1

God: “Look, the world has been disagreeing with Me since this whole thing started. Hardly anyone has been doing it My Way since it began.”

Neale Donald Walsch: “That’s true, I guess.”

God: “You can be sure it’s true. Had people been following My instructions—left with you through hundreds of teachers over thousands of years—the world would be a much different place. So if you wish to disagree with Me now, go right ahead. Besides, I could be wrong.”

Neale Donald Walsch: “What?

God: “I said, besides, I could be wrong. Oh, my goodness… you’re not taking this all as gospel, are you?”

Neale Donald Walsch: “You mean I’m not supposed to put any stock in this dialogue?”

God: “Oops, hold it. I think you’ve missed a big part of all this. Let’s go back to Square One: You’re making this all up.”

Neale Donald Walsch: “Oh, well, that’s a relief. For a while there I thought I was actually getting some real guidance.”

God: “The guidance you are getting is to follow your heart.”

Listen to your soul. Hear your self. Even when I present you with an option, an idea, a point of view, you are under no obligation to accept that as your own. If you disagree, then disagree. That is the whole point of this exercise. The idea wasn’t for you to substitute your dependency on everything and everyone else with a dependency on this book. The idea was to cause you to think. To think for your self. And that is who I Am right now. I am you, thinking. I am you, thinking out loud.

Neale Donald Walsch: “You mean this material is not coming from the Highest Source?”

God: “Of course it is! Yet here is the one thing you still cannot believe: you are the Highest Source. And here is the one thing you still apparently do not grasp: you are creating it all —all of your life—right here, right now. You… YOU… are creating it. Not Me. YOU.”

- Conversations with God, Book 2

“Stick to your beliefs, if that serves you. Hold tight. Do not waiver. For your ideas about “right” and “wrong” are your definitions of Who You Are. Yet do not require that others define themselves according to your terms. And do not stay so “stuck” in your present beliefs and customs that you halt the process of evolution itself.

Actually, you could not do that if you wanted to, for life goes on, with you or without you. Nothing stays the same, nor can anything remain unchanged. To be unchanged is to not move. And to not move is to die.

All of life is motion. Even rocks are filled with motion. Everything moves. Everything. There is nothing that is not in motion. Therefore, by the very fact of motion, nothing is the same from one moment to the next. Nothing.

Remaining the same, or seeking to, moves against the laws of life. This is foolish, because in this struggle, life will always win.

So change! Yes, change! Change your ideas of “right” and “wrong.” Change your notions of this and that. Change your structures, your constructions, your models, your theories.

Allow your deepest truths to be altered. Alter them yourself, for goodness’ sake. I mean that quite literally. Alter them yourself, for goodness’ sake. Because your new idea of Who You Are is where the growth is. Your new idea of What Is So is where evolution accelerates. Your new idea of the Who, What, Where, When, How, and Why of it is where the mystery gets solved, the plot unravels, the story ends. Then you can begin a new story, and a grander one.”

- Conversations with God, Book 3

“It’s not a question of “right” or “wrong.” Right and wrong do not exist. It’s a question of what serves you. Of what re-creates you in the next grandest image of Who You Really Are.”

- Conversations with God, Book 3

“If you are pleased with how you have created yourself, if it serves you, you will continue doing so in that way. If you are not, you will stop. This is called evolution.

If you are trying to get to Seattle, it will not serve you to head toward San Jose. It is not “morally wrong” to go to San Jose—it simply doesn’t serve you.

The question of what you are trying to do, then, becomes a question of prime importance. Not just in your life in general, but in every moment of your life specifically. Because it is in the moments of life that a life itself is created.”

- Conversations with God, Book 3

Neale Donald Walsch: “Is there a way out of this maze—and the cycle of misery it has created for the human race? Will we ever “get it right”?”

God: “There is a “way out,” and you will “get it right.” You merely have to increase your observational skills. You have to better see what serves you. This is called “evolution.” Actually, you cannot “not get it right.” You cannot fail. It is merely a question of when, not of whether.”

Neale Donald Walsch: “But aren’t we running out of time on this planet?”

God: “Oh, if that’s your parameter—if you want to “get it right” on this planet, that is, while this particular planet still supports you—then, within that context, you’d better hurry.

Neale Donald Walsch: “How can we go faster? Help us!”

God: “I am helping you. What do you suppose this dialogue is about?”

- Conversations with God, Book 3

It” is funny sometimes to us, this process humans call ‘channeling.’ Some make it out to be a big deal, but we assure you that it is completely natural. Here it is taken for granted because it is simply what we do all the time. Humans do it all the time as well. All things in the universe share a natural connectedness.”

- Conversations with My Higher Self (A book channeling the same entity known as “Abraham Hicks”)

“We are not God, as you think of God. In other words, we are not the ones who proclaim the rules for all in the universe! When you ask questions, sometimes we think you are writing down the answers as though what we say is the final statement about everything. We have a much broader awareness from our non-physical position, but we are telling you these things from our understanding of them, although we feel we are pretty good at knowing what it’s all about!”

- Conversations with My Higher Self (A book channeling the same entity known as “Abraham Hicks”)

The Only Real and Lasting Truth is Your Own

“Never take what another says to you as “Truth”. Your purpose here, is to find your own Truth. Sometimes, others can help you to do so by offering guidance, but for their Truth to become your Truth, it must pass through the test of your discernment. Sit quietly in meditation, and ask the Infinite Creator to guide your path. Meditate upon that which I have shared, and listen to your inner feelings. They are the language of your Soul.”

- The Hidden Hand (Channeling Lucifer – Sixth Density Soul Group)

“Work upon yourself. Go inside, in a state of meditative contemplation. Still your mind, that your Soul may have room in which to make It’s ‘still-small voice’ heard. Ask your Infinite Creator to help you, and listen to your inner voice. Be patient, it takes time to develop this inner communication, after a lifetime of neglect. When you persevere and keep working on yourself, gradually it will come to you, and when it does, you must learn to TRUST in your Inner Guidance, NO MATTER WHAT OTHERS MAY SAY. That is the ultimate test. To Trust what you know deep inside as your Truth, even when the whole world tells you that you are “wrong”. It is hard work, to Trust yourself when all those around you doubt you and call you crazy, but it is the job you came here to do.

The only real and lasting Truth, is a ‘self-realized’ one. Messengers can come and go, and show you Truth until they’re blue in the face, but it will not be Your Truth, until you have realized for yourself, deep within the Core of your Being, that it ‘feels’ True for you.

You should never accept something as true, just because someone tell you it is so. But when your inner voice guides you that a Truth is True, and you feel that old warm feeling of excitement welling up from somewhere deep within, that says “Yes! I knew it!” Hold on to that feeling, (feelings are the language of your Soul) and Guard it carefully, as you can be sure that your newfound beliefs will be challenged in many ways. It is designed this way, to test you. Your Inner Truth must be able to withstand the test of time, and will be given a thorough examination. Hold fast to it, so long as it is what you Know to be True deep within. Allow nothing or no-one ‘outside’ of you to pull you from your path, no matter how fiercely they contend with you. They are just doing their job, even if they may well not even be ‘aware’ that this is what they are in fact doing. They are performing an important service to you, and you should be grateful to them for that.”

- The Hidden Hand (Channeling Lucifer – Sixth Density Soul Group)

“Religion would have you take its word for it. That is why all religions ultimately fail. Spirituality, on the other hand, will always succeed. Religion asks you to learn from the experience of others. Spirituality urges you to seek your own. Religion cannot stand Spirituality. It cannot abide it. For Spirituality may bring you to a different conclusion than a particular religion—and this no known religion can tolerate. Religion encourages you to explore the thoughts of others and accept them as your own. Spirituality invites you to toss away the thoughts of others and come up with your own.

“Feeling good” is your way of telling yourself that your last thought was truth, that your last word was wisdom, that your last action was love. To notice how far you have progressed, to measure how highly you have evolved, simply look to see what makes you “feel good.”

“When you come from “we are all One,” it is virtually impossible to find that hurting another “feels good.” So-called “irresponsible behavior” vanishes. It is within these parameters that evolving beings seek to experience life. It is within these parameters that I say grant yourself permission to have all that life has to offer—and you will discover it has more to offer than you’ve ever imagined.”

- Conversations with God, Book 2

Q: “How does one measure spiritual understanding of these concepts you write about?”
A: “Take what resonates, discard the rest.”

- Illuminator 13

Q: “Why would it be in our interest to accept information from you?
A: “Like I stated in an earlier reply, there are people who can tell you the truth but you are less likely to accept it as such if you do not see it for yourself. You have to have a “Aha!” moment so to speak. Now I will say this, do not accept my information on the premise that I am correct. Ponder what has been said here, take what you resonates and discard the rest. The same method could be used in other “Sacred Texts” and manuscripts although, depending on how “developed” you are, you may get things confused and accept the wrong parts.”

How to Develop Your Level of Spiritual Discernment

“If you have found a particular spiritual teaching and have studied that teaching, it is because your soul wanted you to have that experience. In other words, even if the teaching might contain some errors, there was a reason your soul wanted you to find and study that teaching.

There are two main reasons why this might be the case. One is that your soul wanted you to find certain true ideas in that teaching. As I explain elsewhere, some teachings contain a mixture of true and false ideas.

Another possibility is that your soul wanted you to study a teaching in order to develop the ability to distinguish between true and false ideas. If you study a teaching that contains only true ideas, you will not have the same opportunity to develop this discernment as if you study a teaching that is a mixture of both.

You can literally come to a point of sensitivity where you can feel the vibration of an idea. You can read a true idea in one paragraph and feel how the vibration of those words stir something in your heart and open your heart. You can then read the next paragraph, which contains a false idea, and feel how your heart is contracted and gives you a sinking feeling.

So please do not fall into the human pattern of making snap judgments about what to study and not to study. As always, follow your intuition, follow your heart. If you get a prompting to study a specific teaching, then by all means do so. And that applies even if someone has told you that the teaching is not entirely pure. However, as you study the teaching keep in mind the dynamics described above. For that matter, keep in mind that both purposes might be involved with studying a specific teaching. You might have to both pick up a true idea and sharpen your ability to discern.”

- Ask the Real Jesus (Channeled by Kim Michaels)

“No matter which spiritual teaching you follow, even a teaching that comes from the Ascended Host and has the highest possible degree of purity, you always need to read between the lines and go beyond the outer teaching. No outer teaching can give you all of the insights you need in order to attain Christ consciousness. A Christed being is able to get understanding and truth from inside itself, and therefore it does not rely exclusively on an outer teaching.

If you keep this in mind, you can make spiritual progress by studying almost any teaching. Yet it should be obvious that a teaching coming from the highest possible source and a teaching that is as pure as possible will make it easier for you to make progress. If the teaching has a high degree of impurity, you will have to be more alert and spend more attention on seeing through the impure ideas to find the truth behind them. If you are not willing to make this effort or if you have not developed a sufficient level of Christ discernment, following an impure teaching can indeed lead you into a dead end.”

- Ask the Real Jesus (Channeled by Kim Michaels)

“Christianity is the life within you speaking to every situation in your life. It is only when the Spirit of God moves within you that you can tell what is really right and pleasing to God. You should only do what the life within you allows you to do. Hence, the issue is not a matter of right and wrong; rather, it is a matter of whether the life within you approves or disapproves.

Before God, we should learn to surpass the standard of right and wrong. Please understand, I do not wish to suggest that the standard of right and wrong is not good. It serves its purpose, and that is good. But for the Christian, that principle of living is not good enough, because true Christian living rises above the principle of right and wrong. If we live by the life of God, we still see that what He requires of us is higher than the demands of the law.

Spiritual things are discerned only in the heavenly realm, and earthly things become clear only with heavenly insight. Therefore, heaven is the only worthwhile viewing point.”

- Secrets to Spiritual Power (from the writings of Watchman Nee compiled by Sentinel Kulp)

“Your attitude in such matters must become that of the strict pragmatist. If it works, it is right. If it does not work it is wrong and there are no other considerations. Furthermore, the decision as to whether or not it does work is to be yours alone. You decide the criterion for judgment.”

- Charles Cosimano
