"Greetings dear ones from the Arcturian Group. All is proceeding nicely in the evolution of your world. The Light of new and higher frequencies is now streaming in, strengthening your ability to see through current events and revaluate your priorities in new and higher ways. You are doing a fine job. When a soul chooses to spiritually evolve, that person's Higher Self is then enabled to draw to them whatever necessary spiritual lessons or awareness the individual is ready for.
Allowing yourselves to listen and be guided by your intuition is a step most of you would not of taken even a few years ago. Examine who you were 1, 5, or even 10 years back and you will see how your beliefs and understandings of truth have changed. You may think; "This is just experience and age". No, this is evolution dear ones, for there are many who have been on earth a long time but still choose to live locked in self made boxes of unawareness, refusing to even peek out a bit. Self examination will demonstrate how you have unfolded (through intention) into new awareness without even realizing it. The world often holds ignorant concepts of what spiritual awakening is--imagining it as a shaft of bright light accompanied by a sudden powerful energy that knocks and individual to the ground and they are then awakened. This is the stuff of fairy tales and "saints" lives--not the reality. Spiritual evolution is a gradual unfolding process as an unprepared physical body could not survive an intense sudden intake of higher frequency energy, they would be incapable of handling it. The profound experiences that some indeed may have, are the fruitage of an attained state of consciousness--hard work done in previous lifetimes.
Spiritual evolution starts with a sense of dissatisfaction--those things that once seemed important and loved, simply no longer resonate in the same way. This in turn, leads to an intellectual pursuit of knowledge, much pondering and re-examination of one's belief system, and an interest and participation in whatever books and classes resonate with the students new interests. Classes may consist of simple bible study or metaphysics (whatever is necessary to draw a seeker to his next level). This phase is usually very intense--groups may be joined with like minded people for discussion and every heretofore unknown idea seems new and exciting. After whatever length of time is necessary (different with every individual), the student will shift once again to a new level and begin to realize that he must integrate what he has learned and so begins practices such as meditation, and the working with metaphysical tools such as crystals, oils, sound etc. . He begins to recognize and let go of whatever erroneous concepts and beliefs he may still hold and starts to live the new and higher ways he has discovered. At first practice and change may be a struggle as old habits tend to die hard. He will still interpret truth in the only way he knows at this time--the third dimensional level-- and so begins to practice the ideas of universal love in "hands on" ways. With time, loving service becomes his state of consciousness and he works hard to fix the errors he sees.
A good example of how consciousness unfolds it to examine a simple topic like honesty. At this point most of you would not even consider stealing from another. However, in lifetimes past, stealing was considered a right and the only way to survive. You see, honesty is simply a facet of an attained consciousness of oneness even if you do not consciously understand it as this." forts.
