While earnestly taking on anew my Christ Consciousness journey, I realized I did not know exactly what it meant to BE Christ Consciousness. I fully understand the need to ‘claim it’ so that the desire is formed and released to be manifested. What had me stumped was the actual meaning of the ‘live like a Christ’ part. Not that I didn’t have plenty of my own ideas, and a multitude of sources to peruse, but where were the clear instructions that said, “This is what living like Christ Consciousness entails”?
Of course there are innumerable sources that list what ‘someone else’ says it is: religions, spirituality websites, spiritual development courses, mediums channeling “The Whole Truth” and blogs, videos, and movies galore. But as the term “Christ Consciousness” is used so frequently among those on the Ascension Journey, I thought some clarification for myself would be useful.
Take the word ‘love’, for example. It can be a noun (Love is wonderful), a verb (I love you), or the most masterful aspect---a state of being, which is vibrational and connects with the harmony of the inner Heartsong. It is decidedly a multi-faceted word that is more commonly associated with holidays like Valentine’s Day and events like marriage than with a lifestyle.
While contemplating what a valid Christ Consciousness template might be, I had a flashback to 4th grade, when I vehemently declared to myself, “I will never get married nor have children.” (Both of which I have done, by the way.) WHY would a 4th grader make such a strong decision? Based on what? Both my family life and school life back then were just fine. So where did that idea come from?
Sunday School….where I was taught The Life of Jesus, who---according to the teachings at that time---never married or had children.
Therefore, if we were supposed to strive to ‘be like Jesus’, then I should not imagine marriage (which I NEVER pined for) or having kids (NEVER dreamed of being pregnant). I preferred my Barbie Doll to be single, never played “house” as the mother or wife, and never was much interested in dating during high school, as I was very busy living the Jesus Journey of life that I thought I was supposed to follow. Be nice; be kind; be good; become smart; help others; feed everyone but yourself, hang out with the people at the bottom of the social ladder; and above all don’t get married or have kids.
THE DAWNING OF THE LIGHT……
If I had those kinds of limitations within my subconscious that denied me the full manifestation of Christ Consciousness because I married and had kids, how many others might have the same? AND, more importantly, what else was within my memory storage keeping me from manifesting my goal?
With our minds, we might believe we know and understand fully what it means to live as The Christ Light, but we don’t achieve it if we have hidden programming limiting our Heart/Mind expansion.
