Practice When It Doesn’t Count

Practice When It Doesn’t Count

Two groups of Spiritual Warriors found themselves in a very real and important dilemma. They understood their personal spiritual missions and recognized that energy existed that could prevent them from completing their work. They asked the Creator for the tools they needed, and each group received the package as requested.

Each package contained three items: a sword, a shield, and body armor. The sword represented Truth and could never be broken. The shield represented Knowledge of the weaknesses of the intruding foe and Knowledge from the ancients. The body armor represented spiritual awareness and the Wisdom to wield the Truth (sword) and hold up the Knowledge (shield) in the face of a challenge.

Soon the intruding energy became evident and both groups of Spiritual Warriors felt they were ready. One group, in excitement and urgency, finally opened their packages and stared with disbelief. Everything was in parts! There was a manual that said, “Some Assembly Required” They couldn’t prepare in time and were quickly overrun and defeated by the intruders. They blamed the Creator, each other, and “the world.” They never learned to use their tools.

The other group had opened their packages long ago. They had put their tools together and had practiced with them. They practiced when it didn’t count and it was a good thing they did, for they found the sword to be almost too fast and sharp to handle properly. The shield had so many options, they had difficulty knowing exactly how to hold it, and the body armor was very heavy!

They soon realized that no single tool worked without all three being engaged. The body armor was the key, for it gave them the Wisdom to manage the sword (Truth) and the shield (Knowledge). With practice, intention, and focused attention, they eventually learned how to integrate and use all their tools, and they were ready. When the intruders arrived, it took the intruders one look at this strong, well-prepared force and they quickly fled. No tears or trouble on either side and the battle never occurred. The group of well-practiced Spiritual Warriors celebrated their easy victory!

Finding and holding your Truth, your Knowledge, and your Wisdom is now, more than ever required, in order to stand strong within your circle of inner peace while you watch the changes unfold around you during the Shift.

How can you be in this shifting world, yet not be affected by it? You must first ask for the spiritual tools that will best assist you. When these tools arrive, as in the parable, you must then practice using them until they are a natural extension of who you are, as natural as using a spoon or driving your car. Practice when it doesn’t count.

The simple Energy Tools you can learn here at Mastering Alchemy will assist you to thrive and serve in today’s unfolding Shift. With these tools, you will “walk through the valley of the shadow of death and fear no evil.” You will be who you came here to be, effectively able to assist and uplift others at the right time, at the right place, in the best way possible, without sacrificing your own truth.

We are all being called to step forward and lead, to fulfill our original spiritual blueprint. The drama, noise, and challenges we find ourselves in today are not economic or social or even political. These are spiritual tests. They test our private, personal commitment to do whatever it takes to be the Healer, Teacher, and Leader we came here to be.

What an incredible time to be alive. These are important times, times that can be joyous and uplifting or rife with struggle and suffering. The choice is yours. Many are indeed choosing to struggle and believe they are victims. Many more of us are consciously choosing to hold our connection to the greater, wiser, older part of ourselves, no matter what occurs around us. We are choosing to create a way of life filled with Certainty, Personal Power, Respect, Amusement, Command, and Graciousness.

When you choose to use your Spiritual Tools, you will be able to respond and thrive, rather than react and doubt. You will be living a way of life, full of your Self. And as you make that choice, you will return Home.

The above parable is one of our favorites. Adapted from Kryon (http://www.kryon.org).
