Jesus’ Gift to Us: Attunement with Him

jesus_with_teen_thumb1
 

If you could visit with Jesus right now, what would you ask Him?

“Why am I here?”

“Where ARE you in my life?”

“Who moved my cheese?”

My question was “What is the most important thing I need to know right now?” The answer astounded me. More about that in a moment. First, I want to tell you what I’m talking about.

As you know, the purpose of this website is to draw attention to the four websites maintained by Jesus through His messenger, Kim Michaels (see About). There is MUCH to read there, including discourses by Jesus and Ascended Masters, and tools for spiritual transformation. One of the tools is an exercise called Attunement with the Christ Within, which is given below in its entirety.

It is Jesus’ gift to us, designed to help an individual achieve real communion, or attunement, with Him in order to receive spiritual guidance and to develop discernment. Communicating directly with Jesus is a central message of these websites because it is a direct objective of Jesus’ message to 21st century spiritual seekers. He wants us to hear His message directly from Him in order to get it right.

The exercise begins first with protection decrees. There is much emphasis on protecting oneself against negative and astral-level interference, with equally practical guidance on achieving sufficient protection before attempting the exercise because protection is that important to connecting with Jesus and not an imposter.

This is followed by a guided visualization to a garden of your imagining where the individual achieves peace in the heart by focusing on the Sacred Heart. The individual also calms and clears the mind prior to meeting Jesus and asking a question.

My own first attempts were a bust because I had a hard time calming my mind. Years of watching fast-paced television had all but destroyed my powers of concentration — I’m looking at you, multiple split-second images in commercials and shaky camera movies. But I persevered and eventually calmed my mind enough to feel a real connection and get an immediate answer.

My question, as mentioned above, was “What is the most important thing I need to know right now?” After a moment, I heard a still, small voice within, calm and direct, say, “That I love you.”

I have no words to describe the profound effect this had on me. So I won’t try.

In a subsequent session, I asked a question regarding something I read on His website. He had said He dislikes that Christians focus so heavily on the image of the cross because it represents the violence of His death, obscuring His true message, which is that we are capable of following in his footsteps to Christhood and we can communicate directly with him in order to work toward that.

So my question was, “What symbol should Christians use instead of the cross?”

The answer came again like a whisper on the wind, “The heart.”

But of course! The Sacred Heart of Jesus! He loves us SO much that He came to this very disturbed planet to show us the road home. He didn’t have to, but He did. What is that if not monumental, majestic, unconditional Love?

Attunement with the Christ Within

An exercise dictated by Jesus:   I am fully aware that this site cannot answer your personal questions. However, I do not intend to leave you comfortless. You have the capacity to commune directly with me. Establishing this communion might take some time and effort. Yet, if you will use the following exercise, the process will be much easier.

The following exercise is a visualization that is designed to help you receive personal answers to any questions you might have. Before you perform this exercise, I strongly recommend that you use an appropriate technique to seal yourself from the energies of the mass consciousness.

You must understand that there are many forces in this world that will seek to prevent you from getting true answers. If these forces cannot prevent you from attempting direct communion with me, they will seek to give you false ideas and answers.

You must also realize that there are forces inside your own mind (the enemy within or your carnal mind) that will try to interfere with this communion. These forces will seek to give you the answers that they want you to have. It is a general human tendency that people hear that which they want to hear. You must be aware of this tendency so that you can gradually build the discernment that allows you to see through imperfect answers and know the answers that come directly from me.

A practical technique

The following exercise will be of great help in building discernment and communion.

1. Go into a quiet room where you can remain undisturbed for some time (at least 10-15 minutes). Seat yourself in a comfortable chair so that you are not disturbed by discomfort in your physical body.

2. Spend 5-10 minutes sealing yourself from imperfect energies (see decree to Archangel Michael).

3. Visualize that the angels of Archangel Michael are surrounding your personal energy field.  There are four angels, one on each side. These angels are 12 ft. tall and they carry swords that burn with a bright blue flame. They are fierce and able to protect you from the forces of this world.

4. Turn your attention to your higher self which is located right above your head. Silently give the following affirmation:

In the name of Jesus Christ, I invoke a wall of brilliant white light around my body, mind and energy field. I accept that this energy seals me from the things of this world. I now invoke a violet flame to burn inside the wall of light and to consume all imperfect energies in my own being.

Allow yourself a few moments to feel that you are completely sealed from the energies of this world.

5.  When you feel at peace, focus your attention at the center of your chest at the height of your physical heart. Visualize that a spiritual flame burns inside your chest. This spiritual flame does not require fuel to burn. It is the unfed flame.

6. Focus your attention on this flame and allow your attention to enter the flame itself. Behind the flame, you see a doorway. Enter that doorway. As you go through the doorway, you move into a tunnel. As you move forward, you see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.

7. Keep moving forward until you emerge from the tunnel and walk into the light.

8. You now see that you have entered an exquisitely beautiful garden. The garden is surrounded by tall hedges. It has beautiful flower beds and walkways. In the center of the garden is a fountain that gently whispers. All over the garden, birds are singing cheerfully.

9. As you walk into this garden, you feel that the cares of the world are simply falling away from you. The further you move into the garden, the more light and peaceful you feel.

10. Simply keep walking and allow yourself to feel how the peace and tranquility of the garden absorbs all of your worries and cares. When you feel uplifted and at peace, take a moment to look around.

11. As you look around, you see two seats carved from stone. Allow yourself to sit down in one seat and make yourself comfortable. Then, focus your attention on your heart and close your eyes. Allow yourself to feel that you are completely at peace in this beautiful garden. In fact, you somehow feel that this is home.

12. Now imagine that you open your eyes and look at the seat in front of you. To your surprise, you notice that someone is now sitting in that seat. When you look closer, you realize that it is indeed I, your Jesus, who is sitting before you.

13. Allow yourself to get comfortable in my presence.

14. Now focus your attention on my heart and allow yourself to feel that my heart radiates an unconditional love for you. Give yourself a few moments to accept that I love you unconditionally.

15. Then, allow yourself to absorb my unconditional love for you and feel how it consumes everything that is imperfect and unreal. This is indeed the perfect love which casts out all fear and all other imperfect emotions.

16. While you are seated in front of me and fully absorbed in my love, allow yourself to think back to your situation on earth. Do not allow yourself to be disturbed by any aspect of that situation. Simply bring your situation to your conscious awareness for a moment. Then, look at me again, and in your mind formulate a silent question. Do not ask me what to do about your situation, because you must use your free will to choose what to do. Ask me to show you a greater understanding of the situation, so that you will know what is the right thing to do.

17. After you formulate the question, send it to me.

18. Then close your eyes and focus your attention on my love. Allow yourself to be so absorbed in that love that you forget all the cares of the world.

19. After some time of being absorbed in my love, your attention might naturally drift back to the question. Simply focus your attention on my heart and listen for an answer. If you do not receive an immediate answer, be not disturbed. Simply focus on my unconditional love and allow yourself to be absorbed in that love for as long as you like.

20. When you feel you have absorbed what you can, when you feel that your heart has become the cup that runneth over with my love, then visualize that you quietly leave the beautiful garden and walk back through the tunnel.

21. You are now seated in the chair in your room. Give yourself a few moments to return back to your normal state of consciousness.

In the beginning, you might not get an immediate answer from this exercise. It might take some time before the answer reaches your conscious mind. Simply be alert and try to set aside a few moments every day to listen from within. After some time, be it hours, days or even weeks, the answer will come to you.

Repeat this exercise as often as you like. If you truly want answers about a specific situation, repeat the exercise once a day until you have received sufficient inner direction.

I strongly recommend that you always have a notebook and pen next to you as you perform this exercise. After the visualization, take a few moments to write down any thoughts or insights that come to you. If you will make this part of the exercise, you will be amazed at the directions you will receive.

The purpose of this exercise is to help you attune your consciousness to me. After having performed this exercise for a while, you might feel that you can attain this attunement even during your daily activities.  This is good. I desire you to have constant, at-will communion with me.

Of Viruses and Lost Spirits

DSCF1325

Consider this:  For centuries, humanity has been plagued by microbes — bacteria, viruses and parasites — that have made life miserable or over too soon. For most of that time, people had no clue what actually caused them to sicken and die. They didn’t know about microbes until very recently. They didn’t know that people could stay well by washing their hands and bodies regularly, and by keeping their food cold and their water clean.

Because people had questionable hygiene habits, they continued to get sick, but they didn’t connect the two. So the chaos continued:  to avoid lice, Europeans shaved their heads and wore wigs instead. They thought water carried disease into the skin’s pores so they avoided bathing. Nobody knew why the plague was unstoppable, and up to a third of the population died while everyone else stood by, helpless and vulnerable.

For thousands of years, ignorance of the facts caused physical illness and suffering.

So now we have vaccines and antibiotics. Good for us, but what if we still don’t get it about mental illness?

If you knew of a simple, inexpensive way to rid yourself or your loved one(s) of depression, anxiety attacks, personality disorders or compulsive behavior (to name a few) with no side effects, would you try it? If you knew it didn’t involve years of expensive meds and/or talk therapy, would you consider it?

Of course you would! but first you would need to get over your outdated conditioned response against the idea of the existence of dark spirits. Or the idea that they are the product of superstitious or ignorant thinking.

Is your mind still open right now, or did it just suddenly clamp shut?

Keep it cracked open a bit and hear me out.

When people didn’t know that bacteria and viruses caused disease and death, the first scientists who isolated the bacteria and viruses were laughed at. They lost their jobs and reputations. The majority of the public was positive they knew their claims to be preposterous — their minds were clamped shut. The open-minded minority had to wait it out to be vindicated.

Do we want to make those mistakes again? I know science has been taking a beating lately, but maybe we need to reconcile science with alternative realities and find a balance. And get used to the idea that life isn’t just about what we can experience, or measure, with our five senses.

“Do not underestimate the power of The Dark Side!” said Darth Vader. A lot of us bought that!

Now consider this:  If Jesus thought it was important enough to drive dark spirits out of several people during his time on earth, who are we to say they don’t exist?

Are we implying by our own disbelief that Jesus was delusional? Who volunteers to tell Him that?….[crickets chirping]….I thought so!

One of the facts of life that Jesus and the Ascended Masters want humans to understand today, in this New Age of Enlightenment, is that in the physical plane of existence, we are continually surrounded and bombarded by imperfect energies, dark spirits and discarnate souls with mayhem or selfish aims on their minds.

That’s fact one from the Ascended Masters. Fact two is that these entities often gain entry into our auras and bodies and cause havoc, including mental illness, unexplained impulses, cravings, nightmares and even murderous rampages — the latter is of the variety we’ve read in the news where someone commits murder in an alcoholic or drugged rage but honestly remembers none of it the next day. What opens us to this kind of takeover is an intriguing list (see below).

Shakuntala Modi, M.D., has written a 630-page scientific treatise detailing her extensive and encouraging research on spirit attachment and spirit releasement therapy. She presents not just the problem, but also the solution. The book is called Remarkable Healings: A Psychiatrist Discovers Unsuspected Roots of Mental and Physical Illness. She gives many case studies demonstrating what is achieved in 2-3 sessions that traditional treatment can’t achieve in years of talk therapy and drugs.

Dr. Modi — who not surprisingly is East Indian, a nationality that for centuries has led the world in spiritual exploration and achievement — reports that the causes of mental and physical illnesses are attributed to:

  • Attachment by discarnate spirits – instead of going to the Light, some dead people move into living people
  • Attachment by dark spirits – some of which are fallen angels
  • Soul fragmentation and soul loss through trauma and the actions of dark spirits

In New Mexico, a descanso is a roadside shrine to an accident victim. They can range from silk flowers or a flag to elaborate arrangements like this one.

Why do people choose to avoid going to the Light when they die? They may be angry with God, they may think they have unfinished business on earth, they may be afraid to face God, thinking He is angry and judgmental (He’s not), they may not believe in God, they may consider “going to the Light” a played out joke, they may like the house they lived in and worked so hard decorating and can’t bear to part with it, they may not even know they are dead, so smooth was their transition from life to death (it happens a lot). Some people attach themselves to loved ones that they refuse to leave behind.

Unfortunately, when discarnates attach, they bring their baggage with them, which includes what ailed or killed them. Those they attach to, let’s call them “hosts,” absorb that baggage. Hence the host’s mental and physical illnesses that won’t clear up.

The good news is that more and more mainstream therapists are embracing the techniques to remove attached spirits from the living, because these techniques work. They are a gift from the Ascended Masters. We live in interesting times, do we not?

The important thing now is to avoid letting fear of dark energies keep us in continued darkness. Remember, we figured out how to defend against bacteria and viruses, why not dark energies?

In the case of attachment, the host experiences the emotional and physical illnesses and pain of the attached spirit. So if someone died of a blow to the head, the host may experience migraines that may be resistant to standard treatment. Dr. Modi calls on good spirits and angels to help usher the attaching spirits to the Light.

Prior to that, Dr. Modi talks to the discarnates to gather data on what makes a host vulnerable to attachment. Here is a partial list:

  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Unconsciousness from anesthesia during surgery
  • Sickness and accidents
  • Extreme emotions: anger, fear, hate, depression, grief
  • Ouija boards, automatic writing, attending a seance
  • Channeling without sufficient psychic protection
  • Conjuring games like Dungeons and Dragons
  • Rock music (yeah, I know….snif!)

Dr. Modi writes, “These therapies work. It does not matter what explanation you believe. Patients are freed from their crippling symptoms. As a physician and a psychiatrist, I am satisfied with the dramatic results regardless of the explanation. I have sometimes seen 100% improvement, a complete cure, of both physical and emotional problems in a single hypnotherapy session: a success rate that is far beyond the usual standard for psychiatry.”

So, the choice is ours. We can laugh at Dr. Modi’s ideas or take a chance that she’s right and begin freeing ourselves from whatever plagues us. It’s new territory, for sure, but what is life if not a series of risks taken in hopes of the best outcomes?

Our gratitude will compete with our relief.

In the meantime, I invite you to read this compelling explanation by Jesus himself.
