I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from July 23, 1989:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in the love and light through this instrument. At this time it is our privilege to ask if we might speak to any queries which yet remain upon the minds of those present. Is there a query at this time?

Questioner: To continue the analogy that was presented in tonight’s session about a trip to Chicago, I wonder if there would be the possibility of an accelerated path to Chicago, maybe to use an analogy like time travel. In other words, how does an entity accelerate along the path to reach the ultimate goal?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. We may suggest that there is that which you call the accelerated path, that path being the one which is consciously chosen and followed. This is in contrast to the path which many of your peoples follow, that which is, as yet, less a conscious choice than a pre-incarnative and subconscious choice, that uses catalyst far less efficiently than does the path that has been carefully considered and has been consciously made the focus point of the life pattern by the seeker.

We are aware that you query as to the possibility of further accelerating the consciously chosen path. In this regard, we may respond by suggesting that as one carefully considers the daily round of activities and the seeming coincidences that present themselves in such activities, that one then follow the product of the intuition and the analysis as soon as one is aware that there is a direction which feels appropriate to the heart of the being. There is much within your illusion and your life patterns that is of mystery. As you are able to sort that which is of most value from that which is of less value, you will find yet that there are still choices to be made, and contemplation, meditation, and the prayerful attitude to be undertaken in the evaluation of the most efficient choice.

If one is able to move in harmony with these feelings and contemplative products of meditation and a prayerful attitude, one will be moving as quickly as it is well for one to move, for there is within each entity a rhythm, shall we say, of awareness that presents itself as a kind of pattern that offers the surest and most stable growth possible. If one attempts to move more quickly than one may successfully assimilate lessons and learning and service to the heart of one’s being, there is danger of overloading, shall we say, the spiritual and mental emotional circuitry of the mind/body/spirit complex. It is well, therefore, to move with some stability as well as with [the] eagerness of the seeker which sees, if only faintly, the goal which is in reach.

Questioner wanted to know if there was a way to accelerate the spiritual path. Q’uo began their answer by saying that the conscious seeker of truth was already on a more accelerated path than most of the population of the planet which were not consciously aware of their spiritual path. As a means of further accelerating the spiritual path, Q’uo suggested that the seeker should become more aware of its daily round of activities and the coincidences that are part of the mystery of the life pattern. Then Q’uo said that meditation, contemplation, and prayer would allow the seeker to find the proper rhythm for them to move on their spiritual journey. In conclusion, Q’uo said that it was best not to try to move faster than one could assimilate the life lessons. On October 5, 2019, Q’uo gave some suggestions as to how one may enhance the spiritual journey:

 Thus, such an entity, at some point within its spiritual journey, becomes aware that the spiritual journey is the sole function of its purpose on this planetary sphere, and as a result becomes more and more desirous of reaping the benefits of such a spiritual journey, of the inspiration that is seen within the being at the recognition of the Creator that it seeks, also residing within its own being. Thus, the great search begins to find that which has always been there, that which begins to speak to the spiritual mind, that which sees the ability of each seeker to grow into an infinity of opportunity to experience the One within.

In such a case, then, the entity often feels that there is very little use for what once was the only focus of its attention, that is, the mundane world and its means of operation. Thus, many have said that the dropping away of the concerns of the work-a-day world represents a kind of death of the ego. This may, indeed, be so, for as the spiritual journey is undertaken with more and more vigor, more and more time commitment, and more and more joy resulting from this seeking, the material world begins to dwindle in its importance and presence within such spiritual being.

Is there a further query, my brother?

Questioner: Not at this time, thank you.

I am Q’uo. We thank you my brother. Is there another query?

Questioner: Yes. I’d like to ask about… I’m a little confused about how the mirror image works in the mated relationship. I—it seems like maybe one person is really patient and the other person is impatient, for example, and I’m sure that’s part of the Creator’s way of showing us that each of us contains both the patience and the impatience. But what if you, say, if you consider you’re the patient person and you’re seeing the impatience in the other person, does that indicate that you need, or that you feel that you should become more patient than you already are… um… I’m kind of confused how this works, how to best utilize this system here.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We shall do our best to respond in the manner which is most helpful.

The mirroring effect that those within the mated relationship experience is an intensification of the mirroring effect that is experienced by each entity at all times when in contact with others. It may be noted within the mind, when there is an interaction between entities, when a thought, word or deed that has been shared remains within the thoughts that you think and remains with a certain charge, shall we say, when there is a response by yourself to any thought, word or deed of another that causes you to move from the center of your being, and causes you concern of any kind, you may notice the mirroring effect as it is generated from your own subconscious mind.

This is to say that you have before the incarnation chosen certain lessons upon which you shall apply yourself. You have therefore biased your perceptions in a manner which will allow you to see what we may call a neutral experience, or neutral catalyst, in such and such a fashion that is in accordance with your pre-incarnative choices. Thus, a number of entities may witness the same exchange of experience and respond by feeling a variety of responses. This is due to the unique nature of each entity’s pre-incarnative programming and subconscious bias.

Thus, whatever experience you share with another that leaves its mark upon your memory is one which you would do well to consider within your own meditations, to look within your own self to see what significance this experience has. Then one may, in a meditative state, look at that experience within the life pattern to note the repetition of this experience or similar experiences, and begin by this analysis to discern the deeper pattern that comprises the lesson that you are attempting at this time to learn, and which has been signaled by the experience shared with another that registered a strong emotional response in your own being.

Thus, each life pattern is unique and the response to various stimuli or catalyst is also unique and may be observed for the impact that it has on the self.

Questioner asked how the mirroring effect works in the mated relationship. Q’uo began their answer by saying that the mirroring effect works the same with mates as it does with anyone one we would come in contact with when a shared thought, word, or deed from them remains in our mind as something to be concerned about. Q’uo went on to say that each seeker has chosen pre-incarnative lessons that will likely cause one to see what is mirrored to them by another person as a reflection of one of those lessons. Q’uo suggested meditation to discover more of the nature of this lesson. On July 28, 1985, Q’uo discussed how the mirroring effect worked for those in mated relationships:

These male and female qualities, then, being expressed within this mated relationship allow the mirroring effect to occur with greater intensity and frequency. This mirroring effect is the effect that occurs when one sees within another self those characteristics that are loved and accepted and those that are not loved and not accepted. In truth, these are the characteristics of the self which are loved or not loved, and are those characteristics which outline the lessons and services that the entity has designed into the life pattern from the pre-incarnational state.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Questioner: No, thank you, that was very helpful.

I am Q’uo, and we thank you, my sister. Is there another query?

Carla: Well, I’d sort of like to go back and look at the situation such as R’s, which is very common, where a person is not doing something that he feels expresses himself, but rather puts on a mask and expresses a persona—a part of the self, but not the whole self. And again and again an entity has attempted to move into a different direction, yet each time, as R said this evening, there is some compelling reason to return to a kind of irreverent humor which is considered by the entity to be perhaps less than completely helpful in service to others. What is going on when this kind of yellow-ray difficulty occurs with the society, with work, and so forth?

I am Q’uo, and I am aware of your query, my sister. One may look at each life pattern as having various vehicles for expression. The relationship with the mate is one of primary importance. The relationship with those with whom one labors in the daily round of activities is another. Each relationship or situation of an enduring nature that one encounters in the life pattern may be seen as the vehicle through which the pre-incarnative choices find a field of play, shall we say. It is within such relationships that those opportunities to express the lessons and services pre-incarnatively chosen appear. It is less important to the supposed effect upon another entity that one may assume has been made than it is to observe the effect of the experience upon the self.

It is well, therefore, to look not so much at the vehicle by which or through which one is expressing the self, as it is to look at the feeling or tone within the self that is, shall we say, the motivating force for the expression in such and such a manner. We would recommend, therefore, that there be less emphasis given to the form or framework within which lessons are attempted and more emphasis be given to the motivation for those structures that are built and operated within for the purpose of attempting those lessons.

Carla wanted to know why so many people in our society put on masks that show only part of their personality to others. Q’uo said that the seeker has important relationships with the mate and those at work which pre-incarnatively-chosen lessons appear. Q’uo suggested that it is more important for the seeker to look at where the feelings that create these masks come from than it is to look at how they are manifested. On December 5, 1999, Q’uo reminded us that we are all equal and should relate to each other in a loving way:

Perhaps the most helpful thing to remember about communication is that you are all one. You are all going through the same experience. You are intimate, intimate friends. This is the truth beyond the surface, behind the masks of personality and individuality. Above all things, keep that faith that each other self is as you are, no better and no worse. See that equality of self to self always, disregarding status and the details of wealth and position. Be heart to heart insofar as you can with each other self. And that attitude of love will greatly help the process of clear communication. Know that each of you has gifts. Some of you have blue-ray gifts of communication. Some of you have gifts elsewhere. It helps to know the self, to have confidence in the self. And so we encourage that within each.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Carla: No, just an observation. You sounded… very good and I really appreciated it. Thank you.

I am Q’uo, and we thank you, my sister. Is there another query at this time?

Carla: I guess I do have one more. I was conjecturing it to myself earlier today. We were talking about time being different in different dimensions and being experienced differently in different dimensions and I thought, well, gee, you know, we experience time differently in a subjective sense in this illusion even. I mean, even with a clock ticking all the time and saying what time it is, if you don’t look at the clock, if you’re doing something you really dislike doing, a minute can last about three hours, and if you’re doing something you love doing, three hours can last about a minute. So time is very malleable and obviously an illusion, a subjective illusion, even while the clock ticks on in the illusion, you can see through it even though you’re within the illusion. It’s one of the easiest things to see through, and I was wondering if in the higher densities, the reason that there is so much time in human terms, you know, millions of years to work on lessons, that perhaps, subjectively, that time is not experienced as a long, long time but rather, is experienced as a time of concentration in which all sense of time is lost while one attempts to learn a very refined lesson.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. We shall attempt to describe this function of time by suggesting that the fluidity or quick passage of time is a function of the lack of resistance to experience. To state this in the positive sense, the ability to move in harmony with one’s experience allows the dissolving of the barriers of time for that entity as it is able to move in harmony.

Is there another query, my sister?

Carla: Oh no, thank you, Q’uo.

I am Q’uo, and again thank you, my sister. Is there another query at this time?

Questioner: I sense that the energy of the instrument is getting low at this point, so perhaps maybe just a brief answer can be given about the use of magnetism, on what we know as Atlantis.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother, and we appreciate your concern for the energy of the instrument, for it is quite low at this time.

The entities within the Atlantean culture were in many respects quite successful in utilizing various means of tapping into what might be called the intelligent infinity or infinite intelligence of the creation, thereby bringing through a kind of intelligent energy which was utilized in many ways to technologically advance the culture. The use of the magnetic field of force as well as use of the energy contained within the atom and use of the crystal for penetrating intelligent infinity was made by a careful application of trial and error testing as is the way of the rational and, as you call it, scientific mind.

The utilization of these forms and forces was, for the most part, an exercise in the mundane application of energy for the use of but a few within the culture and at the expense of the majority of entities within that culture. There were those who felt that the mental discipline of the personality would yield far greater results for both the individual and the culture, and these entities, before the down-sinking of Atlantis, chose therefore to remove themselves from this culture to distant locations upon your planetary surface in order to continue the metaphysical studies that they felt would provide greater opportunity for learning and for service than would the utilization of the technological means of gaining and of applying the intelligent energy through the use of magnetic fields of force, through the use of crystals, and through the release of nuclear energy.

Questioner asked about the concept of magnetism that was used in Atlantis. Q’uo described how some of those of Atlantis used the magnetic field, the energy of the atom, and the power of crystals to tap intelligent infinity to bring through intelligent energy and use it for the elite rather than the culture as a whole. Then Q’uo said that a few of the more metaphysically-oriented Atlanteans chose to leave before this technology created the wars that brought the sinking of Atlantis. In 10.5, Ra spoke of the positively-oriented Atlanteans and where they located before the down-sinking of Atlantis:

Approximately eleven thousand [11,000] of your years ago, the first of the, what you call, wars, caused approximately forty percent of this population to leave the density by means of disintegration of the body. The second and most devastating of the conflicts occurred approximately one oh eight two one, ten thousand eight hundred twenty-one [10,821] years in the past according to your illusion. This created an earth-changing configuration and the large part of Atlantis was no more, having been inundated. Three of the positively oriented of the Atlantean groups left this geographical locus before that devastation, placing themselves in the mountain areas of what you call Tibet, what you call Peru, and what you call Turkey.

Is there a further query, my brother?

Questioner: No, thank you.

I am Q’uo, and again thank you, my brother. Is there a final query at this time?

Carla: All right, I have a question. The negative entities that seem to be coming among us at this time in spacecraft seem bent on manipulating our people for some reason. Could you comment on that at all?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my friend. Our comment upon this phenomenon, in order to avoid the infringement upon free will, must be of a general nature, for there is much activity within the various cultures of your planet at this time that is, shall we say, of the planetary again, and must remain mysterious in order for the free will of the general population of your planet to be maintained. When there is sharing and opportunity of sharing that which is helpful in the positive sense of service to others, as is the growing experience of your planet at this time, there must also be the balancing opportunity for the population of your planet to choose the path.

Therefore, the experiences of which you speak are a portion of this opportunity. The choice, however, remains always, with each individual to look upon the creation about it, either as that which is an extension of the self and that which is helped by the services of each entity, or as that which is to be controlled and plundered for the benefit only of the self or of the group to which the self belongs. Each experience and each entity shall therefore find a free range of choice available. The experiences that you refer to are much in the minds of those who work within the metaphysical studies at this time, for there is also at this time much of light and service to others that is moving as a conscious experience for a greater number of the people of this planet.

Carla said that it seemed negative UFOs were coming to our planet to manipulate our people, and she wondered why that was happening. Q’uo said that they could not give all the information regarding these craft as some of them might be of our planetary origin. As for the other contacts, Q’uo said that many were of a positive origin and this type of contact required that those of the negative polarity also be able to have their messages heard. In 8.12, Ra mentioned UFOs both of our government and those of the Orion group:

Questioner: At the same time you mentioned that some of the landings were of our peoples, you also mentioned that some were of the Orion group. [We] talked a little about the Orion group, but why do the Orion group land here? What is their purpose?

Ra: I am Ra. Their purpose is conquest, unlike those of the Confederation who wait for the calling. The so-called Orion group calls itself to conquest.

At this time, we shall thank each present for inviting our presence in your circle of seeking this evening. It has been a great honor to share that which is ours to share with you. We wish to remind each that we are but your brothers and sisters who have perhaps moved a bit farther along the same path that you travel than have you, but we do not wish any word we have spoken to serve as a stumbling block to you upon that path. Therefore, if we have spoken any words which do not ring true, please forget them at once and use only those concepts for which you feel affinity. We are known to you as those of Q’uo and we leave each at this time in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.

This morning I went outside and used my backpack blower to blow the leaves in the back yard into places where I could use Venus to mulch them.

This afternoon I used my backpack blower to blow the Oak Tree leaves in the front yard into the pile of leaves that I had already collected next to the driveway from the last two days of blowing them. Then I called a lawn service company and made arrangements with them to come here tomorrow and suck them up and carry them away.

From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:

November 14

Expect Your Good

I am of the principle of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.

Today we ask you to expect your good. The instrument speaking our thoughts is a living example of this principle. For in expectation of this contact with love, the instrument and her partner placed the recording device, set the proper buttons, placed the microphone in the proper place, and prepared with readings and meditation for inspiration through this contact. Good was expected and prepared for, and now, in this example, the good comes freely, gently, lovingly and surely.

So good comes to all, expected or unexpected. Yet it is well in each and every morning, in each and every beginning, to affirm, hope for and confidently expect the good that is yours.

And when it comes to you, we ask that you accept that good though it may not seem good, knowing that all things work together for the good and seeing in your own experience the good that has come before. In this state of mind, in this expectation of things unseen, you are dressed in the armor of light and hope and the course of your day may be significantly changed, more peaceful, more harmonious. This is what we hope for you. This is what we ask you to expect.

We leave you in the peace and the love of Jesus the Christ, now and ever. Amen

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of love and open our hearts, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.
