Card #21 | Vega (Past, 1st Era) | Self Sacrifice
In last month’s card of the month, Lemurian Era (#47), we discussed the idea of self-forgiveness – especially as it connects to guilt of what was done or not done in the ancient past to help Earth as it began to enter a sleep cycle 13,000 years ago. This card is an extension of that theme and is often what happens when one cannot forgive oneself.
The Vegans often had a very structured and rigid spirituality. They cultivated a belief that one had to deny the needs of the physical self in order to awaken spiritually. While that can sometimes be true in an ego sense, it does not apply to the needs of a physiological being. The ego’s constant need for reassurance, safety, recognition, control, etc., is the most active in 3rd density. This pattern needs to be seen and acknowledged (while not empowered) if one wishes to awaken. The Vegans took that idea to extremes. Many of them would also deny basic physical needs such as love, connection, community, and even sometimes went as far as denying or restricting the needs of the body such as food or rest. While they believed that this brought them closer to virtue or connected them to the universe, it actually created the opposite – a closed heart and mind that stopped connection and distorted their view of themselves and the universe. Over time, this self-sacrifice created deep pain within their species. (And for those of you who know galactic history, a branch of the Vega lineage—the Zeta Reticuli—took this idea to an even further extreme and brought the species nearly to the brink of extinction).
This Vegan wound still plays out in humans today. Many of you carry a deep sense of guilt, shame, or a feeling of being rejected or unloved by the Universe. To balance this, you may deny yourselves certain things as a way to balance those feelings. You can see this belief system play out in many religions too, such as Catholicism or Buddhism. As a way to remedy this, many of you sacrifice yourselves and constantly think of others first until you are so depleted that you no longer know how to replenish yourselves.
In order to heal this pattern, you must first recognize its existence in your life. Do you give yourself enough time in solitude to recharge? Have you learned how to say a polite “no” when something is expected of you and you just don’t have the energy to do it? Maybe you have heard the phrase, “You teach people how to treat you.” By showing yourself respect and honor (instead of reacting as a martyr or victim), you teach others how to respect you and show them that they must do the same for themselves as well.
Spiritual growth is a tricky journey. On one hand, you don’t want to empower the ego and on the other hand, you have to honor the physical being that has chosen this journey into separation. Part of the journey is finding that middle ground. That middle ground does not include denying or killing the ego, but neither does it include pampering it. Finding and walking that middle path is a process of integrating both sides of your nature – the illusionary human self that is temporarily here in this reality and the big Self overseeing it all.
Your Vegan ancestors eventually learned this painful truth and integrated and awakened themselves. They see their heritage in you, and with deep compassion they offer their assistance in whatever way it can be felt. These Vegan masters offer an exercise in which they can be of assistance. Hold this card (#21) and card #73 (Freedom) in your hands or put them on an altar. Quiet yourself and feel the energy of each card and the flow of transformational energy between them. That transformational energy between them is an energetic signature, or “road map” that assisted the Vegans in transmuting this wound within them. Connect with that energy and allow the Vegan masters to assist. Let this energy give you the strength to make the changes necessary to honor your physical beingness and nudge you along on the road of integration.
Inspired By The Galactic Heritage Cards
Every month, we "randomly" pick a card from the Galactic Heritage Cards deck, and Lyssa (with Germane's help) channels a message for that card that is appropriate at that time.
