Testimonials

Dear Athene Raefiel:

“Although I have never actually, physically “met” you, I do feel I’ve known you for the past few years. Sometime ago you had unexpectedly sent me some kind words about my own website (Astro Chakras). That event, along with the coinciding passing of my best friend, also a very gifted psychic, helped me to realize that I, too, am very gifted. In fact, since that time – which I think was about 2 years ago, or more – I’ve met several other psychics, and they all say that I am very gifted, and capable of channeling. You did not say anything that was profound, but the sincerity of your words was very obvious. They touched my heart, and even from a distance, I could feel the honest Love that you emanate. Not only did you make a difference in my life, but I’ve also learned how to pass on that same loving energy to others in need. Keep up the great work in helping to Light the World.”
Love, Ron

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Athene for over 15 years. She is the true embodiment of light, love, mother, sister and friend. Her gifts and abilities enable all that seek her out to begin their journey towards true enlightenment. Athene has guided me and kept me on my true path throughout the years in numerous ways, beginning with a rebirthing session 15 years ago. She is truly my lighthouse during the storms that life brings. Through Spirit, and with her guidance, I have been able to hone my healing abilities and become a lightworker. I thank Spirit for bringing Angel Athene into my life and hope those that are seeking enlightenment and a true path allow her into theirs.”
Terri Masterson

“Hi Athene! How are you? It’s been some time since I last checked my e-mails, but boy… is it good to hear from you! Like the rest of your readers, I feel privileged to be drawn into the information you provide and share with us; believe me, it makes a great deal of difference in this puzzle we are in called life. Reading your articles and channelings is always like a balm for me and my never-ending search for my own truth. Thank you so much!”
Tons of love from Venezuela, a place of light!

“I’d also like to mention a past project I helped with for clairvoyant counselor and author, Athene Raefiel, I designed the cover for her latest book: “Getting To the Heart”, and did the art and graphics for her new guided meditation CDs: Stairway of Angels, The Sacred Garden, and Prayers and Invocations. If you’re not familiar with Athene’s intuitive work, become so. She’s VERY uplifting. Reading her book and receiving spiritual counseling from her has helped me tremendously.”

“Religion, metaphysics and parapsychology tend to spawn three kinds of teachers: scholars who study in depth, the great thinkers and the Bible; psychics who connect with Spirit and channel that healing and wisdom; and sprites who glow with playfulness, who see the innocent game in our earthly drama. Athene is all these healers and teachers–wise, gifted and light.”
Anne Kalicki – “Melantha”, Colorado Springs, CO

“To Whom It May Concern: I would like to share with you a wonderful light in my life, her name is Athene and she is my mentor. I started taking Athene’s classes fifteen years ago, which was one of the first major steps of my wonderful journey of self-empowerment. Athene, thank you for all your love and patience, you are my spiritual mother.”
Kathy “White Dove”, Colorado Springs, CO

“Athene assisted me in a successful transition through one of the most difficult periods of my life through her healing, emotional release and regression therapies. She always seems to know what is needed to take me through the next step in my journey. I have known Athene for almost a decade and I trust her completely – in the most vulnerable of times. You know she cares about you and understands you and your path – past, present and future. I find that Athene has a clarity, a wisdom, and a depth of knowledge that few on earth have and I admire her ability to articulate that knowledge in a most exceptional and meaningful way.”

“I am happy to write a character reference for Athene Raefiel. I’ve known Athene for almost 15 years, as a teacher, friend, personal psychic, and mentor. Without Athene’s encouragement, belief, and spiritual classes, I’d never be the great spiritual psychic and counselor I am today. I’ve taken many classes from Athene. As a teacher, she encourages, supports, clarifies, and shares her truth. She excites the students that are just beginning, and supports the older students. I’ve taken a variety of psychic and personal empowerment courses from Athene and have used the information on a daily basis. I also had the pleasure of teaching a children’s workshop with Athene. She has the patience to teach the young and the old.

As a personal psychic, Athene has been honest, to the point, and very accurate with my life changes. Athene has encouraged me to channel and tune into my own guides to get my answers. She believed in me and shared her truth. What more would one want in a friend and psychic?

I highly recommend Athene as a teacher and spiritual counselor. She is a natural teacher and it shows in all she does. Athene truly “walks her talk.” Athene is still my mentor. She is like a mother bird that constantly encourages her young to fly. Well, I soared, and still I return to thank her for all she has done for me. I’m now a full time psychic and spiritual counselor and teacher. Thanks to Athene Raefiel.”
Kris Gibbs, Colorado Springs, CO

“Athene has been a good friend and teacher for the past eight years offering new awakening time and time again. She always seems to have a higher perspective for insight and understanding. In addition she has been a major catalyst for the development of my work and for a shift in awareness of my personal growth as well! It is my privilege to recommend her to anyone who is sincerely interested in expanding their awareness!”
John E. Pollack, Sedona AZ

“Athene is a gift of a person who’s expertise has touched many lives. Athene has been my teacher for the past ten years in dream interpretation, which has helped me with everyday problems and my spiritual growth. Regression sessions in which I’ve been able to let go of some very painful burdens in my past. Meditation classes have taught me how to be more in touch with my self and is a great stress reliever. Through Athene’s personal growth classes my self esteem has truly been enhanced, my self worth restored. I’m a happy lady!”
Moana Selinger, Salon Owner

“I am writing to let you know what a powerful teacher you are in helping others with your emotional release techniques. Your wisdom is light-heartening and is an asset to all the lives you touch. You are truly a gifted healer and it is a blessing to know you and have received your wisdom and your healing techniques.

“Every once in a while someone really special comes into your life. If you’re fortunate, that person is multi-dimensional, and the relationships you share cross the boundaries between “personal” and “professional”. So it is with Athene Raefiel, and I consider her to be a blessing in my life on both a personal and a professional basis.

An integrated individual who applies her insight and wisdom to her own life on a daily basis. Athene has proven to be a friend on the highest level and a client who works from a position of self-directed spiritual purpose in her life. On all levels, she conducts herself with a sense of “professional realness” that is very rare, indeed.

My experience with Athene has been that she is focused, innovative, and creative in all that she does, without ever losing touch with the physical realities and responsibilities of life. She is wonderful in every sense of the word.”

Morality and Religion

We often hear the statement “The moral fiber of this country”, yet we have no way of knowing by whose standard this is determined.  Morality is based on virtues and vices, the awareness of right and wrong.

I was raised a Catholic and went to church seven days a week.  I was baptized, received communion and confirmed into the faith.  I went to Catholic school and tried to be the best Catholic child that I could be.

Catholicism taught me as a child that I was a sinner in God’s eyes, had always been a sinner, and would always be a sinner. Such beliefs taught me that I would never be good enough to gain God’s approval.

Alternately at home, I was brought up believing that my parents felt the same way about me as God did. This constantly reinforced the belief within me, that I was not good enough. This moral training made me feel unworthy and ashamed of myself. I became isolated inside and wanted to hide what I came to believe was my ugliness.

Many of the world’s societies believe that self-punishment and debasement lead to good moral living. Some religions, by instilling the belief that our very thoughts and desires make us sinners, teach us to suppress our emotions. This magnifies our sense of guilt and shame, which produces a tremendous emotional imbalance.

Since it is true that thought and desire create; these creations can only be changed by us understanding them, not by suppressing them. When we deny who we are emotionally, we stuff our feelings deep inside where they begin to fester. The result of this repression can and does manifest itself in many forms. Sometimes it manifests as mental illness, emotional instability, and various forms of physical pain and disease. Whole societies of people have and do become confused and hostile as the result of repressed emotions.

In true spiritual awareness, balanced emotions are the key to higher enlightenment. It is through our emotional experiences, that we gain the understanding necessary to control them. Our emotions are the only tool we have for learning how to love one another and our self.

Morality and spirituality are really the same thing.  When we have moral values, we are naturally spiritual.  Moral values should be taught and lived at home, not at church.  The home should be the spiritual temple, and we should be worshipping spiritual values in life consistently. If we were to live life in this manner, true wisdom and insight would reveal itself and we would become godlike.

Most Western religions have become big business. No longer seeking to know and understand God, they choose to wield the power of God to fit their own mandates. Many religions use their teachings to brainwash and control people rather than helping them open up to god. This form of brainwashing convinces us that we should all think alike. Organizations such as these use this group energy to indoctrinate others into their sect.

Many of these religious organizations, herald themselves as Christians, becoming religious zealots who judge other faiths and label them as cults, not realizing they themselves have become just that.

More wars are fought in the name of religion than for any other reason. More people have died and been killed in the name of an all loving God than for any other cause.  China executed the Tibetans, Serbia the Albanians; in Ireland, the Protestants and Catholics continue to fight; in Israel, it is the Muslims and Jews, all the way back to the Pagan Romans who persecuted the Christians. We have been through the Dark Ages, The Crusades, and The Spanish Inquisition.

Spiritual beliefs have always been a source of chaos on our planet and religious wars continue to ravage humanity. Some

radical religionists condone bombing of abortion clinics and harassment of abortion doctors; they infiltrate public schools and politics, all in the name of Christ. War is waged on homosexuals, for some, this too is an abomination of God.

Many advocate the death penalty as justice for a crime, not seeing this as bias when they call abortion murder.

Taking of all or any human life is against God’s law.

Somehow, somewhere in society, we have come to believe that if a person dies, he or she will not return.  We need look to history to discover that problems do not go away by people killing one another. In fact, if all the people who have been killed never actually returned, why are there so many angry and distorted people on the planet now?

It seems that many religions conveniently make up God’s rules as they go along.  In this way, these organizations profess to know what God thinks. Their own teachings tell them that God is beyond their comprehension, yet inevitably they let their ego self¾their lower chakras¾dictate truth.

The truth is vaster than any one being or book.  The search for spiritual truth is the journey that brings eternal joy. The truth is an ever-expanding perception that is unending. Each person is a piece of this truth. When the pieces fit together, they make a beautiful picture that expands and changes as we all grow and develop. Some religions try to make this a still life picture rather than the ever-changing energy of life that it is.

When approaching religion, we should look at the life experiences brought about by the living examples of its believers in order to determine its values. If you find people who have opened their hearts and minds to become godlike by following the dictate of their religion, then there may be substance to their faith. If on the other hand, you find people of bigotry and judgment, or whose spirituality is lived only while in church, then be aware.

Remember that spirituality is not a religion. God has no religion, as God is pure spirit. Spirituality is the essence and energy that makes us all gods. If a religion does not teach its followers to live by this concept, it is not teaching spirituality.

 

Meditation

Meditation

I know we may be tired of hearing about Meditation, especially when we feel we have tried and cannot accomplish it. Meditation is one of those wonderful mysteries in life that must be experienced in order to understand its benefits.

Basically, Meditation is the art of going into a trance state to discover all that was originally hidden from you. This ultimately aids you in the discovery of the deepest levels of self as well as the Universe. I use the word Universe to quantify everything, seen and unseen.

When discovering the many depths of consciousness using Meditation, you also begin to understand your own unseen depth of being. This is how you learn about and discover soul consciousness.

Soul consciousness holds many answers to questions we may not even knew we had, such as, what soul is and its purposes, as well as its memories. While traversing soul we discover whole new worlds of thought and understanding. Soul is like a storage department or type of library containing forgotten and hidden information of ourselves along with History of all sorts.

When people tell you they are channeling, they are usually receiving information through their soul channel. We can develop and heighten our intuition to access soul as well, and Meditation is the best way to do this.

Recently I have heard people on radio shows telling us they only Meditated once in their life, and quickly and unexpectedly accessed the awareness of their Spirit Guides and Angels. I am sure these people now Meditate on a regular basis. Me; meeting my Spirit Guides and Teachers took years of searching and then more years of Meditation. I can only assume these very blessed others of whom I speak, came in this lifetime ready to evolve to such high levels of perception.

I believe that we are related to Our Spirit teachers in some way and have been working together for very long periods of time. Within the Universe all things are connected so it would only make sense.

Do not give up if you’ve had little or no luck meditating, finding that space between time and no time will be discovered through practice and patience. Just as we must make time for other important things in life so it must be with our desire to meditate. Meditation will help you change your life and evolution in ways you never even imagined, and once you start the expansion it can take on a life of its own.

 

Birth and Death

We are seeing the results of what happens when so many people die of unnatural causes and return to the Earth plane to re-establish themselves karmically to learn and grow.

When we die there are a number of places we go depending on our own evolution and soul awareness.

If we die and have no soul awareness we are not transported to the same places as those who do. Not understanding or believing in soul consciousness determines us going somewhere that nothing grows or becomes. It is a type of Limbo where we can easily be born quickly as a baby. There is no learning or advancement as the person has not yet learned anything of its eternal essence and must quickly return with a hope they will discover this in a new incarnation.

I often speak of many creators which can bring confusion to those who believe in the “One True God”. Ultimately there is energy and energy creates new and different energy that ultimately creates a variety of Hierarchies. What chain of command we belong to will eventually be discovered if we choose to search for it.

We have many different chains of relatives, this being similar to looking at a variety of helixes looking like strands of DNA. Because we are multi-dimensional beings we have memories to access from many different lifetimes with many different experiences.

While some discover they have Extraterrestrial Families, others discover they are Angelic beings. Indeed we are a varied as the leaves on a plant. No matter who are creators and families are in spirit, they are all aware of one another, the Universe is an open pathway to communication through telepathy.

Telepathy is the one matrix we all have access to. We may not know it but we are all communicating with one another on some level. Right now fear is the energy that is dominating the 3D and is and has spread like a bad disease the encompasses humankind and others upon our planet.

There is so much possession of negativity and demons currently that it is often mistaken as Mental Illness. Most people are not even aware that possession is real. The old saying that if you don’t believe in it, “it cannot hurt you”, is a misconception in life. We are easily possessed by things good as well as bad everyday with total ignorance.

The spiritual teachings of the importance of raising ones vibrations is so very necessary if we are to protect ourselves from the ravages of life. When we are sucked into the prevailing feelings surrounding us we become disoriented and overwhelmed.

Surrounded by pain and sadness can be devastating when attached to and we being sensitive tend to easily get sucked in. I cannot help you by drowning with you, though so many do just that believing this shows they care.

We must learn to care for the energy of Love and heighten our vibrations if we are to stay afloat this lifetime. Love must be discovered and developed like caring for a garden, which you are. You need become love to understand love and quit trying to define it, instead encompass yourself with it and let it seep in.

Pain

Pain

There are so many different kinds of pain that individuals experience. Emotional pain is the hardest and deepest to heal and come to terms with. Emotional pain occurs when our experiences traumatize us, the very existence of living can cause long held trauma we may not even remember. Sometimes these things lying under the surface will be triggered or re-awakened through another series of events.

Mental pain or trauma can be experienced through anger and sadness. When we mentally focus on traumatic events in life we make mental memory that will often play over and over again as we proceed along our journey called life. Creating its own OCD effect keeping us focused on the pain and confusion presented somewhat as a role model for our thinking.

Deep beliefs within us hold that balance and fairness exist in life thereby helping us hold our rational mind in continual paranoia. In reality we are the only ones that can change and reconstruct our thinking and feeling selves.

One would think that, “time heals all wounds”, but this statement in and of itself is a lie. Time often is simply a way of trapping ourselves into the dogma we call life. Time, in and of itself, has no power to change how we think or feel about ourselves, just as inner beliefs are strong and powerful energies that we allow to subdue us.

To heal the pain within we must be ready to accept change as the key to doing this. A willingness to change how we think or feel about things in life can be a major undertaking as pain and sorrow are buried deep inside. “I know how I feel” is another misconception that holds us back. When we work to free ourselves from pain and suffering our immediate response is how can I change my past?

From the time we are young our conditioning begins through our interactions with parents as well as life and others in supervisory positions. Overcoming our environments from the past can be mind-blowing as we have already accepted some way of viewing and handling what life throws at us.

Pain can and is a tough task-master. When told something over and over again as a child like “you will never learn” it sticks with you. Often as an adult you will even repeat this statement to yourself, over and over again, cementing it within your brain and feeling self. This is how negative self-talk advances itself through your life. You have now accepted this statement as truth and keep re-enforcing it. Patterns such as these steal your life from you and keep you in hiding hoping no one else sees it. This perpetuates sadness and grief as a way of living life.

Cause and Effect

Teaching on Cause and Effect

Lord Kuthumi through Athene Raefiel

 

 

Each of you is made up of many different levels of energetic light and vibrations. In order to understand and participate within all levels of self and consciousness you must allow yourself to be free of physical thought.

If you do not control it, physical thought will dictate who you are and how you see yourself and others. The rational mind is a great asset to all humans when it is used for the right purposes instead of allowing it to use you. To move beyond the rational mind you must be willing to trust that you are not the rational mind. This requires letting go of the need to be in control and allowing yourself to intuit what you are experiencing.

Do you let your mind tell you how you feel? Do you let your emotions determine how you think? To do this is merely being human, yet to observe how you operate in many places at once is beyond the scope of both the mind and the emotions. To move beyond the experience of simple humanness and experience the allness of everything is exhilarating. In this way you expand your awareness and consciousness to take in the breadth and depth of the entire Universe, Cosmos and Divine.

Essence cannot be seen only experienced. Essence and energy are what all things are made up of. When one sits in the essence of energy, they have moved from the world of form to the world of formlessness. This is now moving from the Astral Plane to the Causal and Celestial.

Much has been spoken of and shared with you about the “New Earth” and the fifth Dimensional awareness. Fifth dimension is the Causal Plane; this is where true cause and effect take place as well as an understanding of the term karma. The Causal Plane is the Plane of manifestation. Until you have understood and balanced the awareness of your heart centered service you will not enter the Causal plane. It is a natural progression and one that is recorded and documented throughout the Akashi planes.

The natural progression of conscious human beings is to move through and develop their consciousness though all levels of their Chakra Centers; by doing so they expand their beingness to take in all that surrounds them. This opens them to their empathic nature as well as their spiritual and compassionate nature. It allows you to be naturally who you are.

Contemplation, prayers, invocations and meditation are the disciplines necessary to attain full awareness of self as being God within. Accomplishing this allows you to see into all levels of consciousness and learn to interpret what is being spoken of through the Wind, the Fire, the Water and the Earth as well as through the ages and dimensions of all life. This communing allows you to understand why you are here and what life means on various levels.

This particular span of Earth time is the end of a 25,000 year cycle. Every 25,000 years a new cycle begins as the Earth shifts to achieve a new level of connection and understanding of the Cosmos herself. This is the amount of time that a full revolution takes place in Earth years.

Now as you each stand on this particular precipice of timing you discover it ever easier to tune into the frequencies of the Higher Realms of Consciousness as well as the Physical and Astral. Because all things of form are born from Chaos, what you see around you is a major labor of the Earth as she births into the next state of being.

Many of you have either heard of or seen the Parallel Universe’ as they have come into play this revolution. The so called “New Earth” is simply another dimension of the Earth we call home now. Yes to subscribe to the notion that you will experience the “New Earth” as your home soon is definitely an option that will be discovered by some but not all. Just as when one dies they go to a new dimension to continue their journey so it is with the older souls this lifetime who have created the “New Earth” as a better place to live.

Within the Parallel Universe the “New Earth” has been created and developed during this past 25,000 year cycle. Those who participated in this creation did so through conscious effort and conscious awareness over the course of many lifetimes. The journey of awareness is not an overnight process but can take eons of time.

This particular 20th and 21st century have brought great acceleration of awareness and consciousness to a much greater number and scale, than any other cycles have since before the time of Mu and Atlantis. Your heritage is to remember where you originated from and where you are going. So many teachings help you to remember that the many lifetimes, be they in body or spirit, are recorded in the collective unconscious and accessible to all that find the path of Enlightenment. It is in your origin that you find your destiny.

Though it is true that all paths lead to the “One” it is also true that the Law of Karma must be understood for true expansion into the unseen realms. What is the Law of Karma and what does it mean to the layman of today? The Law of Karma is the Divine law from which all other laws were developed. Karma is the Causal Plane and the Law of Cause and Effect. Until Karma is experienced, lived and understood, one cannot ascend to greater attainment. Much of what your planet and its peoples are currently experiencing is this Law of Karma. Your scientific community calls this a natural law and states that every material effect must have an adequate cause that existed before the effect.

Cause and effect are now often referred to in Metaphysics as manifestation. To manifest anything there needs to be a cause and effect. All things surrounding you in life and the world were manifested. Just as you each manifest your own reality, so do all others. As these realities merge they too have cause and effect and the cycle just simply continues.

Realities are created out of beliefs. What you believe is what is real for you. To change your beliefs’ is to change your reality. When a segment or unit of peoples come together and espouse the same belief’s this creates a powerful energy that then manifests itself in some form. This is often done in Governments and Religions. This energy affects the consciousness of all others holding those same beliefs as truth. Living those truths is how one discovers the underlying principle upon which those particular truths are based. This in turn leads the masses to believe that their truth is the only relevant truth. This in turn causes war and chaos to ensue and the cycle continues.

When a group or single individual decides to break ranks and discover their own inner truth based on the teachings of unseen worlds, it creates a rift in the flow of the others. This rift often becomes an earthquake that can create a tsunami causing a variety of reactions that puts a new chain of events into play. This is how cycles within cycles evolve.

To see the bigger picture you must be able to overcome your need to be in charge. The bigger picture allows you to understand yourself in a manner of being the whole. This in turn allows you to see and participate within the whole with some clarity and awareness. This creates awe and inspiration for new projects and growth spurts. This is how an idea is formed and then put into play. To activate the idea requires trust of the unknown and courage. This is also known as growth.

There are energies upon energies, truths upon truths, vibrations upon vibrations surrounding and interplaying with you daily. To think otherwise is to be unaware. Life is the dance of these myriads of moving energies and vibrations. How you choose to do the dance of life is how you discover yourself and your purpose. You are the sum total of what you believe, if you don’t like what you believe as truth then change it. Be the rift in the flow that needs to create a new way of thinking and being.

Children of the light,

As you begin this new chapter in your life’s journey you will notice more and more the assistance of the Universe in your day to day life. As teachers of light, who are we and what do we do? We are your spiritual family; Spirit Guides, Archangels and Ascended Teachers of light who have been with you in soul since your incarnation as soul.

The biggest question we hear from you is why did I come into this existence, and why now?

Now, in this powerful millennium there is massive and accelerated growth and development for humans and your planetary System. Only the pure of heart shall succeed in achieving their greatest potential during this incarnation. Staying positive and focused is still most challenging for the many. Addressing the energies as they sway and infiltrate as well as illuminate, using discernment to decipher the good from the bad is the task at hand.

Since in truth all is simply development, the greatest challenge you must master is indeed the self. Finding and becoming the Authentic Natural self and pushing forward.

You find fear to be the enemy not because it is bad but simply because it is being used to control and destroy rather than serve the purpose of alerting to danger. Yes fear can be healthy when put into context, yet so few understand how to use it, rather than it using them. So much and so many fear that fears power becomes stronger by the day. What are you afraid of; the future, the past, the present? Perhaps fear itself? To become the strong warrior that you are, you must identify and confront your fear. There is no other way to become free and alive.

Ultimately it is the child within each of you who has learned about and attached to fear that must change its understanding of it. Fear can and does often paralyze through its power to hold you in its arms. Fear is simply a word, energy necessary to forewarn and protect, not encompass and incarcerate the human being that you are.

The greatest tool you have to consume and transmute fear is Love. As St. Germain shares such a wonderful gift of The Violet Flame of Transformation to assist, we find little reason for fear to have its strong potency in your daily lives.

As sentient feeling humans, letting go is the most challenging of tasks you will face in life. Learning to transmute the fear that binds you creates a place for more and more love to dwell, inside and out. This long forgotten use of love to replace all dysfunction in life is the goal.

What is love?  Why each and every one of you are love. It is the expression of love that you are and emanate that transcends all other things. Love is essence and energy of all life, seen or unseen, it is eternal. It is the food of the soul contained within and shared through the spirit and physical essence that you are. Too little love and kindness in the world presents the greatest destruction to the planet and all of her species. Yes love presents potent danger to the darkness as it is in innocence that you find and become love once again.

 

 

Invocation to love.

I call the power and essence of Love. I call to my own spirit essence.

I call to the great beings and powers of Love that unite to assist us all.

I anchor love in every way and honor the energy and light it holds.

I share the energy and essence of my love and connect it with all other love.

Mighty beings of love and light hear me now. Align my energies with yours and allow your child to assist in the journey and recognition of the highest love available.

Beloved I am, Beloved I am, Beloved I am.

 

You were born of and as love in your original state of spirit, mind, body and soul. It is to this state of origin that your soul adheres, and must return to transcend the various planes of consciousness. Would you be happy to remain in the state of being that dictates depression and fear? Could you enjoy little or no development and growth in life? The way of life must be to move beyond that which is the accepted illusion of living.

This is done by unlocking the mysteries of life that lie within and choosing to remove the layers of pain and sadness that have haunted you for so long.

As physical beings it is necessary to have a balance in life between both the Conditional and Unconditional Love within for true awareness and understanding to take place. The Divine element that you are thrives on the Unconditional love to be the I Am; the physical being thrives on the conditional love of needing to be needed. When we feel needed we glow with delight and bathe in accomplishment. When we accept ourselves unconditionally we begin to accept our flaws as the perfections we are healing into.

You will find that all things in the Universe are paradox. Knowing this will help you discern truth and discover that there is really no right or wrong, in each and every moment all is a matter of perception.

Through this awareness you will begin to understand self and forgive others. Most importantly you will release the need to judge.  Through this realization you will grow and develop on all levels of self.

Finding and sustaining peace in life is attainable only through hard work and dedication to discovery of truth and Love.

Many Blessings of Love,

Archangel Raphael

 

The Light You Reflect

THE LIGHT YOU REFLECT

 

www.AtheneRaefiel.com

 

The emanation of the Seven Rays is the same as the Seven Heavens created by the mind of God. From each ray, emanates another light and then another and so on ad-infinitum. These emanations make up all life upon our planet, including our solar system, cosmos and divine heavens.

The Seven Rays that each of you emanate, comes from your individual chakra system. A chakra is a spinning vortex of light, which extends out to connect with another chakras’ vortex of light and another, to create the aura. If each person could travel in a spacecraft outside the earth’s atmosphere they would see the aura that planet earth emits. Looking up from planet earth, we can see the aura of the universe that surrounds us and we call it the sky. All these things we see are mixtures of light and color that give us variable perceptions of sound and vibration, as well as light and color.

These energies make up all that we see and sense around us. Looking at a bright sun or full moon, we often feel vibrations as we experience the visual intensity. Sometimes we describe these things as instilling a mood. In silence we both hear and see sound. Silence in and of itself is sound. Listening to the silence is how you discover what you are not hearing, while still hearing the sound of silence all at once.

What we see and hear often evokes feelings. When we see something that we find beautiful and pleasing, it may evoke a feeling of peace and pleasure within us. When we hear a child cry, it generally evokes feelings of kindness and caring. Sometimes after these feelings are evoked we the receive images of what a crying baby looks like. This sound has now evoked a vision as well as a feeling. Almost all people unconsciously experience these things I am describing, throughout life. Most have never even considered that by watching how this operation works in their lives, that they could consciously use it to change self and the world around them.

If one were to see oneself as a complex set of operations that can be utilized and fine-tuned to master life and destiny, what type of feelings and pictures would this evoke? Studying ourselves as the complex and unique instruments that we are can be very enlightening. Watching how and why we do things can give us a powerful perspective on who and what we are. Actions and reactions can be changed, along with thought processes and development. Viewpoints can be expanded and a small world turned into a big one. Asking ourselves why we feel, see and hear the way we do starts us thinking in new terms.

Although we advance along our spiritual path of learning and evolution, the same techniques are always applicable for whoever and wherever we are on our spiritual path. We are all ever-expanding, ever-evolving energies that may chose to grow or stagnate at any time. As we open up and expand, we discover that spirit awareness and awakening are perceived realities that bring about conceptual awareness and understanding. This becomes a foundation upon which we build and develop our spirit journey. The tools we use are the same senses and techniques I have just described, only as we advance we begin to see, hear and feel, within many different levels of oneself. Our heightened awareness allows us to begin communing with otherworldly beings and entities. We realize that we can commune with Archetypes such as Angels, Ascended Masters, Spirit Guides and our own Higher or Spirit Self. We now learn to cleanse and clear soul debris and karma that holds us back. We begin to heal and integrate all aspects of self and discover that the past can be let go of.  By understanding how our senses operate and skillfully re-training ourselves, we use and develop them inwardly as well as outwardly. All this is accomplished by observing and knowing oneself.

What is the sensation of color about? Why do different shades of color evoke different feelings? When I close my eyes can I make myself see colors? Why do I think and believe I can or cannot do certain things? What do I hear in the silence? What does pure silence sound like? What does it feel like to be happy? Can I sit with my eyes closed and evoke these feelings if I want to? Asking yourself these kinds of questions, and then practicing seeing, hearing, and feeling, is how we continually use and develop our extrasensory perception.

When we were children we worked on developing all of our senses. In our innocence we tried to communicate in any manner we could. We were unable to make or understand words so we communicated through our feelings. Most parents are perfectly happy to communicate with their young through loving tenderness and kindness. This love evoked feelings of security and safety within us.  For most individuals there were many times in their growing up childhood’s where these feelings were shattered and temporarily destroyed. Even as adults we find ourselves faced with these exact types of experiences. When this happens we feel betrayed by our own feelings. We feel stupid and pull ourselves inward so that others cannot see the pain that we feel, nor can they do anything to hurt us again. Often in the inward place we find solace and solitude but also isolation. For most of us we have been experiencing ourselves and hurt in this manner since childhood. Generally we have been made to feel that this is just the way life is and you have to learn to deal with it. We have been left to our devices to figure out how to do that and with little or no guidance to go by. It is not our parents’ fault that they too were brought up and taught in this manner. They are simply passing on what they consider to be the realities of life to you. Well now that you are an adult and can search to find the core of the being that you are, you can start to pay attention to how you feel about and react to such situations in your life. If you don’t like feeling the way you do about yourself and the life you are living, then you can change it by observing, paying attention and work at making it happen.

My Spirit Guides, Archangels and other Teachers of Light, that assist me daily, commune with one another and me at all times. At first I was afraid and a bit ashamed to have them present in my life. I didn’t want them to know how hurt, angry and lonely I was. That was a long time ago and after many years of looking at my conditioning, we have worked through my misconceptions of self and have become unified. With Spirit and I, we always feel the loving presence of one another. I am never alone and neither is anyone else. In ones misconceptions, they simply believe and accept themselves to be so.

Aloneness is a good thing. It is a place within ourselves that we have created to re-connect with these wonderful friends and family, our spiritual soul mates for eons of time. Growing up we were taught that things such as spirits and angels do not exist and are imaginary. We were taught to use the left hemisphere of our brain and to eliminate the subconscious as a place of unrelated dream worlds. We were taught to think of and see things this way because that is how our parents were taught, their parents, and so on. Also due to the fact that so many people have isolated their feelings believing them to be a hindrance that creates vulnerability, they wanted to make you tough in order to survive the outside world. So humans have perpetuated this way of life as reality for many centuries now.

There have always been a number of people that were born as very sensitive and intuitive beings. Who, even through such challenging lives as I have described, managed to still find themselves and their sensitivity later in life and restore it. More people than ever are doing it all the time. It’s like they hear a calling inside that drives them to go beyond what they have been taught was reality and the norm. Often they are seen or labeled as rebellious or out of control. Most people who decide to listen to their own inner-self have a period where they have to block out the rest of the world temporarily, to do it. This in a way labels them as non-conformists by those that love them. For sensitive’s, conforming to a world and life with no sensitivity is utter insanity. They cannot feed themselves without sensitivity nor can they feel alive. For them, the awareness that kindness and compassion are major components of healthy living, drives them to explore their own nature and to heal themselves. They generally then take on the challenge of helping others to do the same.

We all know that money holds too much power over survival on this planet. Without money you cannot eat, dress, keep warm or have shelter. Making and having money takes up so much time and energy in ones life that they are too tired to even think or hope for anything else at the end of the day or the week. From the time we are young we are taught to live this way in order to survive. This training is a necessary part of survival but it cannot bring us security. Security can only be felt and experienced. Security is within not without. When we learn that we are not alone in our lives and our soul self, we then learn that we are soul, spirit and energy rather than form and mortal. At this juncture of life’s journey, our understanding of security changes, as does our life and purpose for living. Too many judgments are made by using the left brain and reason alone. These judgments cause a world filled with turmoil, anxiety, stress and insanity. If logic and reason were truly the keys to success and freedom in life, then why haven’t they worked? It is easy to pooh, pooh, the idea or existence of otherworldly beings. It is easy to deny that you are the only true power in your life. It is hard to take responsibility and seek to know that which others have denied as being truth for centuries, simply because you were taught that such things are nonsense by adults in this life. All one needs to do to decide to explore and journey other elements of themselves is to look at the lives of those around them. If what one sees is truly what one wants then they too will deny any truth beyond what they can see, touch, taste or feel with their outer senses. But for those who seek security, peace, love, happiness, joy or bliss, they will begin searching and exploring texts and teachings that are far removed from such a constrictive way of life and thinking.

The journey of life is far beyond the five outer senses; the journey of life for each of us began long before we were born this lifetime. The five outer senses are tools that we use to define what we learn and apply with our extrasensory perception. To see the world as the sounds and colors smells and taste that it truly is, is amazing. To become aware of how you and all other life are connected is awesome, and to see a Spirit Guide, or and Angel for the first time is remembering what it feels like to be at home with your true family.

Color and sound are key elements in our spiritual development. The silence and the sounds therein hold magical insights. Understanding that we have the ability to change how we feel about our life and ourselves is major self-healing. Letting go of what we thought we knew to be so, and discovering what we intuit to be true, is how we begin forming a new foundation.

You are Seven Rays of light that emanate from your Seven Chakra Centers that assist you in remembering the seven levels of consciousness you travel and exist, as well as live within. You were first born of spirit, then soul and lastly body. You contain the mind of God, Goddess, all that is, and are the mind of God, Goddess all that is. You were and always will be an emanating energy in the Universe that assists and connects with all other energies of like vibration. If you do not like the energy of the vibration you have become it can be changed. The rational mind and survival do not determine who you are, you do.

 

 

 

 

Enlightenment

Enlightenment is not a term or a word but an experience. When one is enlightened, they are aware of how they belong within the whole. They become aware that they are spirit within, and they live in an integrated state of higher awareness.

Becoming enlightened is the nature of the journey that was taken on when choosing to be born into the third dimension. Becoming spiritually enlightened is the fulfillment of this journey.

Once spiritually enlightened one begins to see and live the “bigger picture”. This “bigger picture,” allows us to comprehend the true purpose of existence. Without true purpose in life, we go through the motions of life, never understanding its rhyme or reason. This leads us to question forever our purpose in being here.

As we develop and become spiritually enlightened, we realize that there is an order to life. An order that goes far beyond anything we may have learned through our life experiences or academic learning. A divine order with pristine laws based in perception and understanding. These are natural laws, ordering the Universe and the Cosmos and all life beyond.

These laws have motion and movement. These laws have been given names such as “The law of Cause and Effect. The Law of Attraction, The law of Karma, The law of Rebirth, The Law of Science and Mathematics (also known as Sacred Geometry) and others I cannot name.

These laws can only be learned and understood conceptually. To the rational being they make very little if any sense at all. It is the soul consciousness that remembers and uses these laws to live by.

In order to familiarize yourself with these theoretical laws you might explore books on Quantum Physics and Metaphysics. By doing so, perhaps you can use the left part of your brain as a relay to tap the subconscious and super-conscious.

There is no more rewarding or greater journey than that of spiritual enlightenment. Enlightenment is the one thing we can accrue this lifetime that we can not only take with us, but can also use as our vehicle to explore the heavenly worlds of evolution when we die.

When we leave this earthly body, many humans believe that we automatically ascend to these heavenly worlds. Realize simply, that one must know God here, before one can know god anywhere else.

We dwell continually within many worlds while alive in the physical, whether we are aware of it or not. Little is different after we cross over. Unawareness carries over to the other side just as awareness does. Our realizations while in the physical, have much, if not all, to do with what our realities will be when we cross over. Life after death is not a reprieve from our life on earth; rather an extension of the journey already created.

Without spiritual enlightenment here, there can be no spiritual enlightenment elsewhere for us. There is no magic wand that God waves when you die to save you from your own dysfunctional perceptions. Truly the realizations that you experience on the other side, can only be used when you are re-incarnated to try to get it right the next time.

If instead we were to take responsibility for our own spiritual enlightenment this lifetime, beginning to realize how we and God are one and the same, imagine the changes we could produce in our own evolutionary paths. Many less dysfunctional beings would be returning to the earth plane each round and a more spiritually advanced culture could begin designing and healing the future of humanity.

Letting Go

Letting go does not mean to push away or suppress. True letting go is a process of integration and healing.

Letting go can be a misleading statement because it gives the impression of separation. By integrating a situation that involves you, another person, or a circumstance in life, means to come to terms with it. We can only come to terms with something when we understand it.

When we understand the purpose of our life experiences, we are able to accept them; thereby releasing our emotional attachment. Learning to embrace our issues in this way allows us to take them within ourselves and integrate them.

Once our emotions are understood and integrated our judgments about ourselves and others begin to dissolve.  Where there is clarity and understanding, problems cannot germinate.

What we see on the outside of ourselves is a reflection of what is happening on the inside.  Interacting with others is always a way of interacting with oneself. When interaction brings up feelings within us that we do not like, we should search inside to see why this is occurring. We should view others in our lives as our mirrors.

Many people create emotional isolation by distancing themselves from others. Using the outside as a reflection of the inside, finding ourselves isolated and disoriented shows us how we are feeling on the inside.

Understanding that the only real problem in your life is you, allows you to realize the truth of who you are. Only through thorough self-examination can emotions and feelings be healed. This is true problem solving.

Our accepted beliefs, habits and behaviors¾our inner walls¾all play a part in who we are. Take for example the critical part of self, who loves to run rampant. This part continually judges and criticizes self and others. This kind of behavior is very often quite destructive. This behavior leads to an out-of-balance, superhuman, perfectionist complex.

It seems to have become the norm to single out what is imperfect about another or oneself rather than identifying what is unique and special. This commonly leads to pettiness and competition, disrespect and dishonor.

We can require that others honor us in the same way that we honor our self, only by treating them as we wish to be treated. We find it is much easier to accept others when we like and accept ourselves.  Being critical and judgmental are roadblocks in the path of learning to love.

As we become honest with ourselves and reflect our own attitudes and actions, we see the mirrors that others play in our life.

In understanding why we feel the way we do about our past, we begin to let go. By transmuting pain and sadness into love, we become loving.  By changing how we think and view life, we become open-minded.  Realizing that one can only change his or herself rather than the world around them alleviates the stress of what you cannot do.

Letting go is the process of fully accepting something as it is with no need to change it. Only through a spiritual perception can we understand the issues faced in life and come to terms with them. Openly embracing life and its lessons with an open and loving heart allows this new perception to emerge within us. This is letting go.

We must be able to forgive and accept our mistakes before we can change them. Embracing with love always brings about the desired change. This is the universal paradox upon which all life is based.
