Attainment for the new cycle comes not just with a new time of spiritual training. Or rededicating yourself to an ongoing path. It involves more, like pausing and reflecting on what energy you can clear. To make way for the momentum you’ve planned for this next quarter-turn of the seasons.
What does clearing have to do with Attainment on the spiritual path?
For one thing, it provides you with the benefit of being able to more clearly discern from amid the smorgasbord of spiritual food in the world. Discernment is a pre-requisite for attainment on the path. And attainment doesn’t come just because you are studying spirituality. Spiritual knowledge alone can’t automatically grant a measure of wisdom.
There are graces, to be sure.
A living master can exude transmission to such a degree that your memory body floods positive records into your lower mental fields. Masters of Wisdom on the inner realms, who sponsor your lifestream, work along side your higher mental body in this way.
Either way, your higher mental body is the One Who activates what you need. Knows whichever portions of your past life attainment are relevant. Necessary for your current path. This is how your new gifts come to fruition. It’s what augments your former gifts, enabling you to expand.
Attainment comes, yet not without your sincere effort at applying the teaching.
Studying can stimulate your own effort. Yet don’t let it take that place, because generating a sincere effort to make a teaching practical is why you study. Applying cosmic law is the spiritual form of elbow grease.
This practicality of spiritual study might explain why some seem to more quickly accelerate, while others may feel that nothing much or anything at all is happening. Which, by the way, isn’t necessarily true or even likely. You might just not see progress. The way you don’t see the caterpillar in the chrysalis becoming the butterfly.
Perhaps you may just be lagging because you haven’t quite yet got the knack. Or gained the momentum of applying what you learn. Maybe you require self inspiration, motivation and determination. To begin, or begin again.
Even advanced masters of highest attainment have been tested.
Many began by appreciating even only the glimmers. Nurturing that sense of light. Until it then became a longer period of illumination. Longer still. Until finally an awakening came that became an ongoing then a permanent enlightenment.
So, how to accelerate your attainment, and do so safely? While it’s true that reading or listening to Truth can sometimes act to stimulate the awakening process, what if you don’t know if something is true? What if it’s either impartial or an outright distortion of truth?
You have recourse: commune with your higher self before you begin. Or even after you’ve already come to something that gives you pause. Ask for your inner teacher to release the precise portion of your past attainment. To give you crystalline discernment. Then, should you receive the signal to go ahead or, continue to move on with dignity and poise.
Gaining true mastery comes from consistently testing the waters.
Part of the path to mastery involves the inevitable challenging of what might be an imposter energy, because bonafide masters of wisdom don’t take offense at this. If anything, they expect that you challenge them, instead of just assuming the veracity of a spiritual experience. If you get a feeling of hesitation or other clue, then question the source and call down light. Let it enfold you while you listen for the quality and content of the answer. Practice this, and have courage to keep going.
I’ll have more to say in my next post about the difference between a true teaching of wisdom. And its imposter.
