The Hourglass Experience
“This is June 29, 2013 this is a general Cosmic Awareness message with Will Berlinghof as Interpreter and Callista as Energizer and Questioner.
Q. We welcome you, Cosmic Awareness, and ask if there is a general message you would like to give us tonight?
A. That this Awareness, this Cosmic Awareness does have a general message at this time. That it is now over six months since the Ascension event of December 21, 2012 and many have been on that which could be called the “passage perilous” in terms of going within, of letting the greater forces of Divine Consciousness come through in their own personal ways.
That this Awareness has described this as a passage of nine months and has in the past made the example of the development of the human fetus: the nine-month period of time that it takes the human fetus to develop normally as an example of the situation at this time for many people. Many individuals are not entirely understanding of this, do not quite see how this is affecting them.
In particular those whose soul purpose is not to advance at this time to an ascended state, an enlightened state of consciousness, that they find it most difficult of all for they are not even aware that this ‘passage perilous’ is occurring. That they see events entirely in reflection to the outside or exterior events of their lives. They look at the exterior events and do not realize that they are reflection of an inner state of consciousness, an inner state of one’s beliefs.
That this being so, this Awareness is not addressing those many whose life purpose and soul plan is to achieve a higher state of conscious awareness. It is however addressing those many spiritual seekers, those Lightworkers who have over the last six months been looking within themselves in their own personal and unique ways to understand even deeper that which is occurring at this time. That for these ones who are seeking deeper understanding and perception, who are willing to look within and see that which is the obstacle course of their lives, to look within, to see the blocked beliefs, the indoctrinations of beliefs, the attitudes of perception that they have so long held – that this message is directed to today.
That as six months have now passed, two trimester periods have gone by, the spiritual seeker is now facing the final trimester of this journey. That many have found it difficult to understand how it is that working within oneself, seeking the deeper answers, finding the deeper connections is exhibiting itself in their lives.
The primary way this is occurring for many is the problems that many are encountering in their lives. These are problems of the physical, the mental and the emotional, as all three levels are being worked upon at this time from that which is an expanded state of consciousness. Saying this, many do not necessarily see this as active participation on their parts. They are simply encountering the difficulties of their lives in these three areas of their lives. That this Awareness says it is exactly this that reflects the inner state and the journey that is happening within, often without an entity’s conscious awareness.
That those experiences that are being had in the physical journey of life are reflections of the inner status. To this, this Awareness says do not fight the obstacles of your life, do not panic, do not go into fear when the situation of your life is such that it seems to be overwhelming to you. Many, for example, are finding extreme difficulties in their financial lives and are not at all certain how they will be able to carry on with the many events that are happening in their lives, that are strangling their financial resources, limiting them or even making them disappear.
That this concern is one of the most elementary concerns that most human beings have on this physical plane of existence. Many contribute this to the social factors that are occurring at this time: the talk of recession, the lack of work available, the situations of resources disappearing because of natural events that they are experiencing.
All of this is a reflection of the inner state, where the inner consciousness is struggling with the deeper consciousness and opening to the assuredness of the deeper consciousness, the higher states of awareness that all will be well. And that even on financial levels, even with limitations and problems, still all will be well. For those in particular who are spiritual seekers, this incongruity of that which is their financial situation to that which they are aware of on a level of intellect – that it should be possible to open oneself to great abundance and prosperity, to see this flowing into their lives and yet are still facing the actuality of their lives, which is that of limitation and restriction – a great block is present.
This great block is indeed that which is occurring within. It is one of the pieces of debris that is floating in one’s consciousness, that is held at some deep subliminal level by the subconscious and in particular the ego of the subconscious, which has been programmed to respond to the external signals of prosperity, that has programmed itself and been programmed to accept how difficult it is to make it in this physical reality, to live in great abundance and prosperity.
That many layers of the belief system have been constructed for individuals. That these constructs of belief vary from person to person, individual to individual. Thus it is that many of the spiritual seekers who are developing themselves at these deep levels are drawing into their lives at this time great crisis, not only because of financial restrictions and problems but also because of physical problems as well as emotional problems.
That it is easy for this Awareness to say that all can draw abundance into their lives, that Spirit is abundance, but It is also aware, this Awareness is also aware, that saying these words, conveying these concepts does not make it easy for those who are truly in problems of finance, for example, or other problems that may be occurring in one’s life at this time.
It is why the last three months of this nine-month period are crucial, for this last trimester is all about truly letting go of the fears and doubts to whatever degree one can, with the belief, the building of the belief, the fostering of the belief that all will be well. That when one opens to expansive energies their lives expand, and that these last three months are a timeframe in which one can build upon this idea, this new programming.
It will involve courage to face the problems that are facing one, especially in this third dimensional, materialistically inclined reality construct that is 3-D reality – to truly let go of the fears that one is having because of the restriction of funds, because of a lack of work, because of the recession, etc. etc. Yet it is still exactly this that this Awareness is asking one and all to work with, to foster this new belief system and to hold it as that which will be the experience of one’s life. To ask for the spiritual assistance to help one through this constriction, this period of difficulty as one faces the unique challenges of one’s life in a physical reality.
Remember always that the beliefs that are held within you are ones that have been fostered for you to believe in the indoctrination of beliefs, is traditional in nature and societal in construct. That this means that many are born into a physical life where they adopt the beliefs of the parents and the grandparents and the lineage of their families and that many teach the child the traditional concepts, the traditional beliefs they themselves were raised with. It is difficult perhaps to overcome one’s traditional upbringing but it is not impossible. It is very much possible and that as one in this unique and critical period begins to truly confront the fear that many are holding around their lives in the physical, and the reflection on the exterior of those adopted fears, those fears that have been fostered throughout one’s lifetime – one will begin to see change in one’s life.
That this process does not always come with a guarantee, but the guarantee that this Awareness can give one and all is that as you work with these inner beliefs, the inner programming, as you challenge your own subconscious mind and ego, that the subconscious will begin to change, the low self will begin to allow the higher energies of Spirit to flow through. Many are fearful that they will not achieve enough in the nine-month period that they are going through, that they will not pass, for they are seeing it as a pass or fail situation.
That this Awareness would say here and now that this is not the case. The nine-month period has been made available for individuals to look within, to do the inner work to whatever degree they can achieve this inner work, this inner introspective process. That there is no criteria or level where Spirit says they have passed. There is only the stage that one reaches in their own journey of personal development. It is, as it is meant to be, part of one’s soul group plan and personal plan as well.
The opportunity for great advancement does indeed exist at this time but there is no pressure from Spirit that an individual must reach a certain plateau or stage before one progresses. The nature of Ascension to higher consciousness is an ongoing process. It goes on from the moment of one’s birth to the moment of one’s exiting from physical life, and that often the lessons are unconscious in nature and therefore often they are not understood. Often they are not even perceived as possible lessons.
But for those whose focus and intent it is to learn, to grow, to heal and release, whose purpose it is to establish the new programs so that one can move into the expansiveness of their higher consciousness and allow this force of consciousness to be truly part of their lives – that this Awareness again reiterates: there is no final exam. It is a process that will continue after September 21.
That this nine-month period of time, and now this final trimester, are opportunities for expanded and accelerated growth that will take one exactly where one needs to be. As the evidence of change builds up in one’s life, in one’s physical reality, it is easier to understand and see the effect of this inner process. But even without seeing the effect, the holding of this attitude, this new program will make it possible for continual growth even after the 21st of September 2013.
That those whose intent it was and whose intent it is to work diligently on their inner selves, to change, will also find that when September 21 comes they will be ready for the next stage, the next step in their spiritual evolutionary process. Therefore this Awareness does say here and now that the importance of the inner work that is one’s goal, that is one’s responsibility as such – that it will continue even after this nine-month period is complete, is done.
That this Awareness will extend now It’s analogy of the nine-month period to speak of that which will occur at the end of this nine-month process, still using the example of the development of the human fetus. That when the nine-month period of gestation is finished, birth occurs. But this does not mean that a fully functioning adult emerges but rather a newborn infant that is still very much in need of support and care. That the newborn infant cannot walk, talk or even take care of its own bodily functions. That in the reality that is third dimensional reality the human infant is taken care of by those who are its guardians, its parents.
Thus this Awareness says that come September 21, it will mark a new birth for all. Those who have actively been pursuing the inner work may find that they awaken into a new level of reality but are still very incompetent in walking in that new reality, in functioning in that new reality. That there will still be need for ones who are their guardians, their caretakers. That they must see and understand that to believe, to expect that one will automatically reach an advanced state, be a fully evolved and grown-up adult being, is not that which will likely occur for the majority.
Indeed if one does see now and understand now that the process will continue but a new level will have been reached, will have been achieved that allows new growth and the formulation of new belief patterns, new programming, that it will enhance the journey after the ending of this nine-month period. For those who expect on September 21 that they will be fully formed, functioning at the highest level and have not prepared themselves sufficiently – there may be disappointment as their expectations are not met. For those who expect a similar event they expected for December 21, 2012 and an immediate shift, events occurring on the day that will change all – there will again be great disappointment, for September 22 will dawn as it did nine months previously when December 22 dawned and many were disappointed that the world had not changed to their expectations.
Hold rather the expectations, the open state of mind and consciousness that now the next part of the journey begins, the developmental stage of the young infant learning how to cope in the new reality it has emerged into, that it has been born into. An infant does not display great anger and frustration upon its birth when it cannot walk, it cannot move beyond elementary movement. It simply goes through the process day by day, acquiring new skills and new capacity.
That the first year of life is extraordinary in nature, for that which is the newborn infant grows and learns many things, including how to move, how to talk, how to walk. By talking, this Awareness must state It is not referring to full conversations but the making of noises that elicit response from those around and the developmental process of speech begins and develops in this timeframe and beyond.
What this Awareness is saying is: do be patient, do understand that it is still a developmental process that one is going through, although it is not that of the actual infant being born but rather the spiritually aware infant that is emerging into the new reality that is opening, that is commencing.
That this Awareness would say to many that this is still a vulnerable state of being, when one has expectations that exceed the reality of spiritual process. That there are many wonders and miracles that will be available to all but if one is impatient and demanding of events occurring now because their intellectual capacity determines it should be so but their emotional and mental levels have not yet progressed far enough, there will be disappointment.
But this Awareness must also say that there will be many rewards, many experiences of profound wonder and rapture. That new energies are much more available and that as one grows in their understanding and appreciation of the new reality they are finding themselves in, the examples of miracles and wonders will also increase.
Remember also that this will be a period of accelerated growth and development after this nine-month period is complete, when one is in the new reality, but it will still be governed by the beliefs and attitudes that one holds. If one is able during this period of nine-month gestation in the spiritual process to truly comprehend that one is working in accordance to one’s higher spiritual plan, and has the patience, has the trust, has the faith to continue on the journey, they will see the evidence all around them even if they cannot completely or totally control how this evidence appears, even if they cannot completely manifest their wishes when they have them.
Still it will be much different to what was before December 21, 2012, will be different to what it has been during the last six months and the next three months of the nine-month period. That this Awareness says to one, to all: that which awaits you is still that which is of a truly amazing proportion to what one once knew to be so. That this Awareness says it is the start of the new beginning, the new threshold of experience of that which this Awareness has called planet A/B, and that having reached this birth, this new emergence into the new reality, to have the trust, faith and patience to continue on the journey.
Q. Thank you, Awareness. Do you have any particular ideas that we could use right now, anything of any hope that you can give us?
A. That this Awareness wishes to present another analogy for this period of time, this nine-month period. It calls this the hourglass principle. That many are aware of an hour-glass in its unique shape, two conical cylinders merging together through a thin, narrow tube or neck. That the hour-glass is filled with sand and that as the hour-glass is turned over sand descends down from one side into the other through the narrow neck of the hour-glass. That if one were to understand the hour-glass neck as a point of compression and constriction that only allows a few grains of sand through at a time, one may understand the compressive nature of the nine-month period of development that they have been going through and are going through.
That as one does enter the narrow opening of the neck, that the compression that one begins to feel can be very difficult. That within the tube this compression continues and eventually the grain of sand will fall through the opening at the bottom of the tube, at the bottom of the neck and emerge in an expanded arena, entering into the bottom conical shape of the hour-glass.
That the birth process, the physical birth process is somewhat similar in that the spiritual consciousness is coming into physical form, and that the nine-month period of gestation is the narrow tube or neck of the hour-glass where much is being accomplished, much compression is occurring. That finally with the birth itself, the final passage through the narrow tube of the birth canal and the emergence into new life, that the nine-month period that all have been going through in their own unique ways, whether in consciousness or unconsciousness, is of course the nine months of development this Awareness has spoken of.
But to extend this analogy somewhat – imagine, if you will, that there are great blocks in the neck of the hour-glass, blocks and debris and flotsam. Consider these to be one’s thoughts and beliefs and understandings from that which was the old reality that are being encountered in this narrow, restrictive passageway. That it is here that one can deal with the blockage, the debris that is in the tube that is blocking the exiting from the tube. That as one deals with the flotsam, with the debris of beliefs and attitudes, emotions and feelings that are restrictive in nature, one moves forward, one descends down the tube, and that the final blockage is that which is now being experienced by many.
That this may to many feel an impossible situation, as if it is not at all likely that they will proceed through the tube into the expansion that lies beyond. And yet grain by grain the bottom of the neck of the tube is breaking apart, and with deliberate focus and intent that one can deal with the blockage that lies ahead.
This last trimester is exactly the time to deal with the most solidified part of the narrow passageway that is represented by the tube or neck of the hour-glass, and that it is important to continue to work at that which is within this compressed period of time that each individual is going through, the bottleneck of the hour-glass, and that as one works on this these blocks are reduced and even eliminated until one finally will come to the point of emergence, the point of birth, and will burst into the new reality that is ahead, the expansion of consciousness with many new possibilities available.
That this will also be presented, this hour-glass principle, as a meditation from this Awareness to the many who are seeking to burst into their expanded being but who are at this time very involved in working with the interior construct of beliefs, attitudes and thoughts.
Q. Thank you, Awareness. Do you have anything further to add for us this afternoon?
A. That this Awareness is complete with this message today.”
The Hourglass Meditation
This is the 29th of June, 2013 and Will Berlinghof is Interpreter for Cosmic Awareness, Callista is Energizer and Questioner.
Q. Cosmic Awareness, we would like to hear the Hour Glass Meditation if that is available now.
A. That this Awareness asks one and all who are ready to meditate on this concept, this energy, to visualize themselves entering a safe place. For those who are experienced in meditation and have used the Heart Chamber Meditation that this Awareness has given previously; proceed to the Heart Chamber, to enter into that which is the Secret Heart Chamber of God, contained within the human heart.
For those who are unfamiliar with this Heart Chamber Meditation, see yourselves entering a safe place, a comfortable place where one is relaxed and confident.
That upon entering this safe place, be it the Heart Chamber or one of one’s own choosing, to relax, to take several deep breaths. One is then to imagine oneself walking on a desert. There is sand all around, the bright and warm sun shining down. That one decides to sit on the sand, to feel it below them.
That as one sits on the sand, one feels the energy of the sand around them, the desert sand, or perhaps the sands of a beach.
One begins a process of compressing oneself down into a grain of sand. That one simply feels them self to be a grain on the bed of sand that you are sitting on, and using this analogy to merge then with the field of sand that you are on, become a grain of sand, still experiencing and feeling the warmth of the sun as it shines down on you.
Next, be aware of movement below you, of a sinking of the sands that lie below you, traveling down with the sinking sands, going deeper, surrounded all around by the sand that you are part of.
Realize that you are now in the hourglass of sand with the sand grains flowing down into the narrow neck of this hourglass, and that you allow yourself to flow into the neck of this hourglass.
That at first there seems to be a steady flow, but then the flow seems to slow and you are aware that there are blockages in the tube ahead of you, around you, that has sealed the bottom of the tube so that sand is not falling into the expanded area of the hourglass below. The debris you are seeing, the blocks around can represent now attitudes and beliefs, thoughts and understandings that are not in alignment with the flow of consciousness but rather are creating blockage.
With your mind’s eye, begin to see these blockages clearly. Identify them where you can, when you can. Therefore, you may be looking at a huge piece of debris and suddenly you will think that this represents an attitude or belief that you have always had but is not true. Dissolve this piece of debris, see it breaking up and as it breaks up, you sink deeper down the neck of the hourglass. Do this with all other debris that you see, breaking the debris up and releasing it, allowing the journey down through the tube.
Finally you come to the end blockage. Use your full force of imagination to break through these final blocking beliefs, thoughts and attitudes. See it so. The blocked area breaking open and a rush of sand passing through the bottom of the neck of the hourglass. See yourself falling into this expanded area below, feel the expansion of your being, know that you have finally broken through that area of compression and enter a new state of consciousness. Be open to the expansion of this new consciousness that you are part of. Stay within the energies, feel the energies around you. Let your conscious awareness be exhilarated by this new environment you find yourself in. Allow the expansion to be part of you and you part of the expansion.
Take a few moments more and when you are done, when you are complete, return back to the heart chamber or to that safe place you have constructed in your imagination. Allow the energies of the meditation to filter through. Bring them into the body. When you are done, when you are complete, come out of the meditation and continue your day. This meditation can be done as often as one wishes.
That each time you go into the compressed narrow tube that is the neck of the hourglass, you have the opportunity to work on various beliefs, thoughts or attitudes that have flowed into the tube with you that are in need of release.
This Awareness offers this meditation for one and all at this most crucial time, as the soul is progressing from what has been to what will be.
Q. Thank you Awareness.”
