I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from November 25, 1990:

(Jim channeling)

I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and light through this instrument. At this time we would open this session of working to those queries which may be upon the minds of those present. Again we would remind each that we offer that which is but our opinions, and though we offer them gladly and freely we would not wish any word that does not ring of truth to the listener to be kept within that listener’s mind. Take only those words which seem useful to you and leave all others behind. May we ask if there is a query at this time to which we may speak?

D: I have a question. Is the planet healed by third-density attempts to heal it?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. We find that there have been for many, many years attempts by various individuals and groups upon your planetary surface to bring about the healing within this planetary vibration, a healing which would seek to mend that which has been broken and distorted by the careless and violent upheavals within so many of your cultures for so much of your history. Those angers and acts of disrespect for self, for other selves, and for your planetary entity itself, have the accumulated effect of causing these disharmonious vibrations to be accepted by the planet itself, and these vibrations then build up a kind of karma, if you will, that which is the wound within the planet. This is also added to by the carelessness of the manner with which the planet and its resources are utilized within the human process of evolution, industrialization, standardization and the large scale manufacture of items for convenience.

Though there are many efforts that have had marked success in attempting the rebalancing and healing of your planet’s ruptures, we find that there shall be for some period of time that is significant in your measure of time, a remaining evidence of this disharmony that will necessitate a continuation of this healing process into the fourth-density experience that has begun upon this sphere at this time. We encourage all such efforts at not only healing that which has been broken, but in ceasing to cause further damage by the conscious application of those principles of stewardship which each entity and culture creates and undertakes as a way of life and realizes as a standard of living, or of relationship, each with the other and with the planet itself.

D asked if our planet was healed by third-density attempts to heal it. Q’uo responded by saying that there were many attempts to heal our planet of the difficulties of war and the unwise use of the resources of our planet, and there had been some success in this healing, but it would be necessary to continue these healing efforts for some time to come. In 26.28-31, Ra spoke of how healing efforts have been utilized for some time for our planet:

Questioner: I was thinking specifically if an entity was in Hiroshima or Nagasaki at that time and he was reaching harvestability at the end of our cycle, would this death by nuclear bomb possibly create such trauma that he would not be able to be harvestable at the end of the cycle? That was specifically my question.

Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect. Once the healing has taken place the harvest may go forth unimpeded. However, the entire planet will undergo healing for this action, no distinction being made betwixt victim and aggressor, this due to damage done to the planet.

Questioner: Could you please make the instrument cough? And…

Ra: [Cough.]

Questioner: And then, can you describe the mechanism of the planetary healing?

Ra: I am Ra. Healing is a process of acceptance, forgiveness, and, if possible, restitution. The restitution not being available in time/space, there are many among your peoples now attempting restitution while in the physical.

Questioner: How do these people attempt this restitution in [the] physical?

Ra: I am Ra. These attempt feelings of love towards the planetary sphere and comfort and healing of the scars and the imbalances of these actions.

Is there a further query, my brother?

D: Is the planetary entity being formed more by the passive sending of love and light than [inaudible]?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. It is quite correct that the planetary entity is greatly benefited by that which you call the passive sending of love, light and healing energy, which may be done in any number of ways, including the meditation, the imagination, contemplation, prayer and the simple attitude of right use which each entity vibrates as a tone of the being, shall we say, as it accomplishes its daily round of activities. These sendings, or thoughts, in the metaphysical sense, are things which are felt and which find their place within this planet’s web of energies and which work in an harmonious fashion with the planetary energies.

Is there a further query, my brother?

D: Is it better to accept someone who [inaudible] as they are even though it may be self-destructive, or to encourage change?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. We find that it is helpful to accept every entity that one meets as being whole and complete in the basic sense of being a portion of the one Creator which seeks to know Itself. That there may be apparent disharmonies within an entity’s thinking or behavior may become a means by which a relationship is established with this entity in order that both entities may learn of a balanced path. It is such relationships that allow entities to work upon that catalyst which is the life’s pattern and purpose, for as each partakes in the mirroring process it is as though each helps the other much as would the sculptor, in chiseling away that which is not desired, so that that which is the ideal becomes more clearly formed in each entity’s life pattern.

However, we must add that the most important ingredient in this relationship and process of mirroring is the acceptance each of the other so that there is no need for change to occur for the entity to be accepted. When this level of trust has been established the foundation work has been accomplished and the structure of the relationship then may be built upon this firm foundation, and when there are difficulties that arise within the relationship, as most assuredly they will as a part of the playing out of catalyst, it is well for each to remind the other that the foundation of the relationship is acceptance, that is, not conditional, and which is all-embracing.

Is there a further query, my brother?

D: Is the form of energy work that I’ve come across out here in Oregon beneficial for spiritual growth, and how?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my brother. In this work, as any work which focuses upon the contacting of that shuttle known as the spiritual complex, is work which is beneficial to the evolution of any entity which partakes in it, for the most important ingredient in any such work is not necessarily the apparent efficiency of the philosophy, the ritual or the practice, but is instead the intention of the entity which undertakes the philosophy, the ritual or the practice.

When the intent is strong and when the intent persists, then there is constructed within the entity a channel to those energies which are being expressed in whatever manner the practice sets up as a means of expressing these more subtle energies. Working as you are with the subtler energies that enliven and undergird the physical expression of spirit, you may notice that there is within the life pattern added a certain vitality which is as a resource or reservoir of energy which may be utilized according to one’s desires and will. This choice of use of subtle energy vitality is a choice which is crucial in the polarization of any entity, for the choice to utilize such energies in service to others will continue to enhance the evolutionary process.

Thus, the energies with which you work are powerful according to your intention, your perseverance and your choice of usage.

Now D asked if the energy work that he had done in Oregon was helpful for spiritual growth, and if so how? Q’uo replied by saying that work that was directed towards contacting the spirit complex was helpful in one’s spiritual growth because it enlivened the physical expression of the spirit and could be used to aid one’s polarization. On March 2, 2002, Q’uo described the nature of energy work:

Consequently, people who yearn to do higher density work often find themselves with very sickened and failing bodies because the physical complex has not been strengthened to receive higher energy. Consequently, the prelude to working upon the blue ray or the throat chakra is the same as any other energy work. It begins with red ray and clears blockages sequentially, red, orange, yellow, green. Once the energy into the heart has been secured as a good supply then it is that entities may work further and begin that which is truly a blessed and healing thing, work in consciousness. Work within blue ray is helpfully preceded by time spent in silence within the heart chakra, for there is the need to become undefended and it is only in the heart chakra that you are able to reprogram fear into love.

Is there a further query, my brother?

D: No, thank you.

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

Carla: I have one, which you may or may not be able to answer, because it’s specific, but it’s something that I’ve been experiencing for awhile and I felt that I should question you for any comments you might have. I keep waking up in the middle of a sentence. It’s very distracting, and has thrown me off a couple of times this evening because I must have sort of, without leaving my body, just gone very deep. And the question is, is this an artifact of my low vitality, or is it a sensitivity of some kind to something that you have in mind, for instance, [inaudible] the best state that I can be in without being in trance?

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. Your latter assumption is more nearly correct. We are working with your instrument and your vital energy, especially the physical energy level, in a way which we hope may stabilize the contact at a level which is both efficient in the transfer of concept and relatively comfortable to you as you partake in this process. We would recommend that you not be overly concerned with the phenomenon of awakening, as you have put it, in the middle of a sentence or a concept, but continue as you have for lo these many years to step off the cliff without knowing where the foot will land. It is this willingness to offer the self wholeheartedly as an instrument which will aid any instrument’s progress as it seeks to improve its function as an instrument.

Thus, we congratulate you on your continued perseverance and practicing of your art and would comfort your concern with these words.

Is there a further query, my sister?

Carla: Just what is happening? I mean, am I going out of time, because to tell you the truth, tonight it was—I thought I’d been talking for maybe five minutes, and the recorder clicked, it was supposedly 45 minutes. I guess it’s the truth, but I wasn’t aware of most of it. What was I doing if I didn’t leave my body? I mean, was I actually going to sleep? I’m not overly concerned about it, I just want to understand it, in case it happens to somebody else that I have been teaching.

I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. The process that is ongoing as you continue in your channeling is one which takes you deeper into the subconscious levels of your mind complex and which approaches that which you call the trance level without actually entering into this level of mind, for we do not wish to work with your instrument in that kind of experience, for reasons which you are well aware. However, that which we have noted within your conscious mind more nearly approaches what you would call the sleep state, or more correctly, the hypnogogic state that is associated with the rapid eye movement or dream state that is within the sleep state. This…

[Tape ends.]

This morning I went back to the County Clerk’s Office and found out that my payment of the taxes on my trailer had been returned to me because I had made a donation to the Kentucky Veteran’s Trust, and their computer system was not able to process donations at this time. On the way home I stopped in at Walgreen’s Drug Store to pick up a prescription.

This afternoon I went to see my dentist to have him look at a couple of sores in my gum line above the teeth on both sides of my mouth. He prescribed some steroid cream that he suggested that I rub on the sores four times a day, and then I will go back in a week so he can see if they are being healed.

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

February 7

Softness Of Heart

I am the spirit of the living Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of perfect love.

We would give to you and to all the peoples of Earth the grandeur and the glory of creation, the aspect of heaven which your eyes do not see but which rests imperishably within each perishable mote of shape and substance in the creation.

We would give to you the softness of heart to perceive glory. And yet often you who seek the living spirit of love feel that you must toughen and harden yourselves to be more effective blunt instruments for Christ. Yet Christ is not one desirous of seeing large generalities or of using blunt instruments.

Jesus the Christ wishes to send you into the world as a soft, complex, subtle and quietly shining being, one who celebrates the imperishable in every perishable situation; one who can ignore the perishable even when a less subtle heart would be prone to condemn and turn away.

The strength of Jesus the Christ seems often like softness, yet there is more steel in the velvet manipulations of the spirit than in the hardened thrusts of all the righteous lances in the perishable universe.

May your hearts be softened and may you find peace in the imperishable, now and always. 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.
