The term “three faces of power” actually comes from an organization called Powercube and states that there are indeed three faces of power – visible, hidden and invisible. As some background, this group runs workshops teaching people an analytical tool known as “powercube”, which enables them, essentially, to look at a specific point of power in a company/organizational structure, from many different directions. “Power” normally conjures thoughts of some type of control or ability to control. There are actually four different types of expressions of power, as detailed by Powercube:
1) “Power Over” – refers to the ability of one powerful actor to affect the thoughts or actions of those less powerful
2)”Power To” – the ability to take action for positive objectives
3) “Power Within” – refers to gaining the sense of self-identity, confidence and awareness that is a precondition for action
4) “Power With” – refers to the synergy that can emerge from partnerships and collaboration with others
If you look at this list more closely you’ll see it is really a reflection of our reality. One recognizes that an organization, which wields power (POWER OVER) and makes decisions that affect the well being of others, has acted in a manner that is not consistent with either laws or common morality and ethics. A decision to take action may take some time (POWER TO) while we conduct research and essentially determine if this is a worthwhile battle. If so, we need a game plan on how to make our voice heard and may spend considerable time (POWER WITHIN) stoking up our courage and defenses. No person is an island, as it is said, so it is not inconceivable that our “game plan” would include connecting with like-minded individuals or groups (POWER WITH) and possibly collaborating on a common cause.
I will get back to this in a moment and hopefully tie it all together in some type of understandable order.
INDIGO, CRYSTAL & W.T.H. IS MY PURPOSE????
In recent weeks, I have been re-reading information about what is often referred to as “indigos” and “crystals” and in each explanation, there was a consistent core of “characteristics” to identify these two groups. One aspect that was of concern to me, initially, will likely be a source of at least confusion for many of you as well. When I view the lists, I begin running down them and remarking that I see them in myself and then wham – I encounter several in a row that definitely do not reflect me or my personality traits/characteristics.
Essentially, have you viewed the lists of characteristics and found you have aspects of both?
This can be confusing, especially if you add in other possibilities like starseeds and even incarnated deities. In starseeds, we have the understanding that the soul fragment within, is part of a much larger collective Higher Self. Its first foray into the 3d physical realm commenced with lifetimes spent in the reincarnation cycle of a particular group of the space-faring races. It has been suggested that one characteristic of a starseed can be an affinity for specific types of animal. For example, one group known as the Lyrans contains a feline race, and if drawn to cats in this lifetime, it could indicate a strong connection with this group.
As for incarnating deities, that belief is extensive. Ascended Masters are claimed to be walking among us now, as some claim there are angels, as well as half-angel and half-human hybrids (Nephilim) as well as entities masking as “gods” or “masters”, while others are not from here but can mask their presence with high-tech and magical “cloaking auras”. One must ask, however, what constitutes a “deity” or “god”? Most of us have been conditioned to automatically assume it is the god of our childhood or present religious belief. I would contend that it is not them at all, but rather others, who have the ability to incarnate at will, experience death and then return to their Higher Self aspect.
On a side note here…. there has been considerable speculation and commentary about an imminent “return of the Annunaki”, and allegedly world leaders and even The Vatican are aware of these returning “gods”, the supposed creators of modern-day humanity. Yes, according to Sumerian writings, Enki developed a fondness for the humans he genetically altered, and supposedly was the one responsible for hardwiring free will into our DNA, with the help of a blue avian race who had already “ascended”. He was, however, directly responsible for human experimentation!!!! There have been some who would welcome these beings back into our reality as our creators but I do not share that sentiment. In a collection known as The 14 Tablets of Enki, allegedly penned by Enki himself, we are given a glimpse into the “great” history of their race, and it is rife with betrayal, hatred, forced incest and a staunch view that the newly-created species of humans were no more than “beasts” to be used as the rulers thought necessary.
Unfortunately, this ability to incarnate at will does not include a sizable percentage of those presently incarnated on earth. Many are contractually bound to both their religion and the entities controlling it, on both a conscious and subconscious level. Some strongly believe these individuals die, go down the long white tunnel, which leads to an astral processing plant, where the soul is then reprocessed, sometimes resulting in a rapid “turnaround time” before being sent into another incarnation. This is dependent, it has been opined, on the usefulness of the soul to aid the overall plans of the associated gods. The only way out of this continuous cycle, it is suggested, is annulling the cosmic contract that one has been bound to through their religion and associated gods.
To have any authority, however, two things must be present: One is a clear case where the individual has not been made fully aware of the conditions and terms of the contract, such as having it forced on them at a young age and hardly able to fully fathom the decision to cosmically give away one’s soul after death……. and after spending a lifetime trying to atone for “sins” for which they couldn’t possibly be responsible. Secondly, a complete energetic separation from all entities and energies associated with that religion and gods that held a lien on that soul. From personal experience, this is best done in the presence of a mentor or teacher-type guide who one deems has the authority to assist. Additionally, for almost 2 full days after completing a separation ritual, I experienced very unusual discomfort that actually bounced around my abdominal area. It was like someone had turned on a high pressure hose without securing the nozzle. Oddly enough, the cut cords all were attached to the 3 lower chakra areas; my heart felt fine, as did my other chakras.
Buddhist teachings offer the wisdom that upon death, one must stay in the “first light” and not take the tunnel. I find this to be sound advice. Although not fully relevant, it is interesting to note that the state/location one enters upon death, known as the bardo, lasts a maximum of 49 days, where a prayer is said daily during that time. No one can state – with any authority – exactly how or at what stage of development the soul actually enters the physical body. But in a strange coincidence, it was noted that the pineal gland on a baby begins to show at 49 days.
ALL VERY INTERESTING BUT….BUT WHAT ABOUT MY ROLE IN THIS LIFETIME????
I’m just getting to that, trying to make the necessary tie-ins. I worked with Lins this week to get out another Raziel Key, along with my description and a bit of added insight. It centered on life lessons and our expectations but also included was his acknowledgment that we are/have been asking ourselves what our real role is, in this lifetime. It can be a source for anxiety, fear and confusion. Are we presently doing what we came here to do? Or is there more? How can we tell? This article entitled What Is My Role or Purpose In this Spiritual Awakening? has some suggestions worth considering.
In part, the answer lies in the above-mentioned confusion of having personal characteristics of two or more groups of “unique” reincarnating souls such as indigos and crystals. A quick analogy may assist here. Consider building a house. The first ones to actually do physical work for building the house arrive (the older generations) and begin the preparatory work, essentially building a foundation. As the work progresses, certain aspects of the construction requires skilled trades people with specific specialties,(the newer generations) from plumbers to electricians. Throughout construction the foreman and/or architect guide the actions taking place, and they have their own unique specialties as well. Some of these groups are seen, and some are not. On large projects, it is common to have representatives from several different companies at a site, fulfilling their own unique role. The objective is completion of a successful project.
Essentially, for those of us who don’t identify with the characteristics of any one group, it may mean we are a type of specialist or one who has a grasp of many things and can perform a variety of roles. Many of us will attempt to shoehorn or minimize our skills, experiences and wisdom. An essential component of helping ourselves is first helping others with recognizing these, especially in the area of their strengths and talents. Giving others our support verbally will result in a slingshot effect, coming right back at us, though often from another source. This is the Law of Reciprocity in action and many of us can attest to its accuracy.
In the route taken, after one becomes aware of an issue or action that is unacceptable (POWER OVER), we may find we seldom take it to the fourth stage (POWER WITH) and open collaboration with others or groups. Similarly, our research will not always be consistent either; it is dependent on our need for knowledge of a given topic. In the related area of spiritual practices, consider when employing candle magic, some are quite content to complete a simple ritual and/or include a visualization or mantra and then light the candle, while others may have the need or desire to dress the candles (applying specially made oils on them in a very precise manner) “call in” certain entities and even inscribe them with specific sigils they’ve made beforehand. This may give us an additional clue as to our purpose.
In summation here…. one thing is certain. Our path will proceed on actions we take and where we choose to take them. Everything is dependent on what has already transpired. In determining the types of causes we defend, we can also get a glimpse of a role that we are comfortable with, when applying determined effort. A quick personal example here, as an analogy. Several years ago, I chose to be a volunteer on a political campaign, something I had not done before or since. For the two months I worked there, I quickly morphed into the janitor and signs co-coordinator, and the general duties guy. No, it wasn’t glamorous and I wasn’t the center of attention, but I learned a great deal and was part of a unique and satisfying experience…even though I was only able to use a small part of my talents and skills. And the candidate kicked some serious butt and won!
Obviously, we can receive assistance in our search for purpose from our spiritual helpers. Instead of asking them what our purpose is, one suggestion might be to request their direction towards activities and experiences that will provide all the tools required for our role. It may well be that we do not fully possess all the experiences and/or wisdom required just yet.
I wanted to end with a bit of information and observation, of what I deem to be relevant and timely information, some you may or may not know. I will boldly say that the recent moves by Russia, in the last few weeks, are extremely significant. As a foundation, we have the predictions of Edgar Cayce, who, in 1944, published that Russia would not only be the country to avert WW3 but that it would be a beacon of hope for the entire world. At the time, this was preposterous to almost everybody, as Russia was deep into the thrall of communism. During that same time, we see the US on the opposite pole, with a thriving economy, wealth and a form of democracy but a county where many observed their respective religious traditions and it was reflected in the US unity.
Flash to today, and many have noted that the perceived and actual roles of those countries have reversed almost totally. Russia’s president has made it clear that a well-functioning society must have a strong sense of ethics and spirituality, which many in Russia now find in Christianity. As witnessed in western MSM, there is a concerted effort to vilify and demonize all aspects of Russia, that rose to a crescendo, if you followed reports as I did, on 28 September. On September 29/30, Russia took action and began bombing locations within Syria, after gaining full permission from the host country. As stated in several places, one of Mr. Putin’s concerns, for obvious reasons, is the Christian population presently being targeted by terrorists. No, it is not the only reason (it is likely well down a list of many) and could likely be just a good sound bite for him… but his level-headed and clear thinking has been made obvious for the world to see. It must be remembered, however, that he is only a representative of an invisible power with their own agenda. For the present and immediate future, that agenda appears to be helping humanity and their strategy is significant.
What these strategists have done is present an almost total opposite of the perceived reality about Syria, both presently and for the future. At a precise moment, President Putin announced that the present foreign-imposed humanitarian crisis in Syria would no longer be tolerated by Russia. It was a decisive statement that most of the world assumed was just more rhetoric coming from the Russian government. Within days, they began an air campaign against a coalition of essentially mercenaries paid by foreign nations and have been quite transparent about what they are doing. Additionally, Russia has been supplying humanitarian aid of food, a welcome addition to the needy citizens of Syria. A seemingly hopeless quagmire of war, with no foreseeable end in sight, and suddenly a powerful nation and leader has appeared to stand up to the world and take action based on international law. This fact is not lost on the populace, and has opened the eyes of many globally in a very unifying manner. This would suggest, also, that those who are responsible for this strategy are quite familiar with alchemical principles and the transmutation of energy.
There’s a whole assortment of peripheral and equally significant factors to that manufactured chaos, far too many to detail. I just wanted to draw your attention to Mr. Cayce and his predictions for Russia, becoming a beacon of hope for the world. If local sentiment and feelings are any indication, President Putin has become akin to a rock star in several countries. Recent days has seen large rallies in front of Russian embassies worldwide including in Berlin, India, Hungary and Serbia praising Russia and President Putin in particular for standing up for justice and defending international law. Conversely, the popularity of the US, among other countries including Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel, has plummeted dramatically.
So…. Does this recent military action- to assist a country that has been under constant forced war with hired mercenaries and religious zealots – seem to be a “game changer”, as it pertains to our continued evolution as a species? What is being displayed for the public to see, is something quite different than we’re used to, after listening to and viewing the actions of our policy makers with suspicion and often anger. For the besieged Syrians, this lifeline from Russia in coming to their defense, has changed many aspects of that war, not the least of which is a renewed hope in a peaceful future, where tyrants and bullies cannot harm them again. That energy has spread globally and resulted in a new wave of people awakening, adding their own energy to the collective whole… and each person doing it in their own way. What it signifies for many keeping current with events, is that a sizable number of people are actually daring to hope for a better future.
As always, I do not push any of the above views on anybody as “the truth”.
