What stands before you today is not only opportunity, but great permission — permission to let go of the very things that have haunted you, keep you in darkness, challenge you the most. The idea of letting things go, while active in some ways, is primarily an act of reception and allowance. And “to let,” which is to allow, “things, which are the issues you have, “go,” which means to release, simply means you are saying, “Yes, it is permissible.” You need not carry these things into tomorrow, or your idea of tomorrow, which is all tomorrow ever is. When we ask you questions about your lives — Who do you think you are? What do you think you are? — you answer as best you can through the subjective rules, “This is who a person is, what identity is,” as experienced by the individual, without understanding that these subjective responses are entirely confirmed through the schemata of collective group reasoning, choice, and allowance. Even the titles you give things — “He is a doctor, she an attorney,” “He is not doing very well in his occupation” — are all born in comparison and the meaning that things have been endowed with.         

When we say yes to you, when we confirm you as you truly are, we are not confirming your work, your occupation. We are confirming your true identity, the Divine Self that operates beyond time and need not carry tomorrow with today’s and yesterday’s burdens. Now, when we speak to you about a burden, we simply mean something that is held in the energetic field, in memory, which holds vibration. And the vibration of these memories and ideas in fact coalesce and become substantial, hence a burden, a heavy thing, a thing carried about. The relinquishing of a burden, while it may mean great relief, may also mean that the idea of self, the one who has held the burden for so long, must be relinquished because you’ve so self-identified through the burden and its presence and its challenge that you’ve come to believe it’s who you are. You are your addiction. You are what happened to you when you were a child. You are what your husband said about you, or what your wife said when she left. You think you are these things. You are not these things. You experienced these things, but you held them, use them, claim them as identity, and they operate in the energetic field, calling to them things of like vibrational accord.

When we teach through Paul, we understand his needs to learn, release his own burdens. But today is not about him and we are not going to take his questions. We are going to continue teaching to this collective, because this collective has been prepared through past class to release an idea of self as of the one who is bound by history. The belief that you are bound by history, what you endured or experienced, and what the collective endured and experienced, must be understood as a fundamental burden that you all carry. The collective carries many burdens, collective beliefs, collective law, collective pain, and there are issues in individual culture that seek to replicate the whole. In other words, you become the one who inherits the pain of the culture through your experience of the culture, although all you have done is align to what has been present in your experience.

When we speak to you today, we speak to you about two different things: the willingness to release, and the willingness to be who you are without the self-identification through the challenge. It is not a badge that you had a challenging life. There is no one in this class who has not known great pain of one kind or another. It is not noble to continue suffering. There is really no nobility in suffering. It’s a challenge when it occurs. It may be learned through. It may be handled gracefully — or perhaps not. But it does not make one noble. The relinquishing of the idea of self as the one in pain, as the one carrying burdens, comes at a cost, because the names you’ve given yourselves — “I am the one who is always failing,” “never beautiful enough,” “always last,” “always wrong” — predicates identity in commerce with others in the field. In other words, your calling card becomes your burden, and your exchanges with others tend to be primarily dependent on their agreeing with your ideas of who you are, which are born in what you went through.

Letting go, allowing it to release, must mean that it goes somewhere. You are not going to drop something and have it land on your foot. You are not going to pretend it’s gone. It must be offered, it must be gifted, to an idea of something, a level of vibration higher than the one that it has been held by prior. Understand the vibration of what we call the Upper Room. The Upper Room does not align to fear. When you lift to the Upper Room, you are aligning to the aspect of you that does not hold fear. When you align in the Upper Room, at this level of choice what was once a burden may be re-known, may be released. But what you cannot do is swoop back downstairs to try to reclaim it because who are you without it?

The gift of this class today is the agreement that it can be done — “It will be so” — it will be made so at a level of tone or vibration where what is old, what is actually obsolete, can be released because it cannot align to the level of tone that we sing. Now, when we say sing, we may mean tone allowed as sung, but the level of vibration that we hold, which is in intonation, may actually override those things that have been held in lower alignment. Now, lower alignment simply means that its initial creation holds a basis in fear. It does not make it bad or wrong. It simply was created at that level of fear where what it magnetizes to itself is more evidence of the same — in other words, the repeated trauma, the repeated dynamic, the again and again insult that you carry within you and expect to experience in the world you see. However these things have been made manifest, whatever you may call them today, they are finally creations, simple creations, that have claimed you through self-identification as who and what you are, when in fact they are not. You may hold a tumor in the body, but the body is not the tumor. You may hold an energetic field that carries great pain, but you are not great pain. And the re-recognition of identity, “I know who I am in truth,” is what will claim you as the one who holds the permission to release the obligation to what was created in fear.

“What does that mean?” he asks. When something is created in fear, it holds a level of tone, what it was born into, the memory of the slap, the punishment, the memory of the rejection, the memory of the brutal attack. It really matters not. It happened, and it was stored in one way or another in the body and in the energetic field. Now, the energetic field is actually easy to move. Mostly the issue is that you’ve self-identified through the history, through the old, and see yourself as replicating it.

“What about the body?” he asks. The trauma stored in the body may also release, once you stop objectifying it, nourishing it, placating it. Simply letting it be what it was — an idea of what happened once upon a time that is not the truth of who you are — gives it permission to move.

Now, we are speaking rapidly today for two reasons. We are overriding the channel with this rapidity. But we also want to lift you, one and all, to a level of tone where the permission you require, which is simply an agreement to what can be, be made known to you, one and all.

On the count of three, Paul. We intend to tone through him. We will invite you as well. We will do the attunements after. What we are doing now is preparing a space for the action of agreement, a level of tone or alignment where what was created in fear cannot be held.

Now, one. Now, two. Now, three.

[The Guides tone through Paul.]

I know who I am in truth. Say this. I know what I am in truth. I know how I serve in  truth. I am free. I am free. I am free. I am in the Upper Room. Behold, I make all things new.

Now ask each aspect of self that has been held in shadow, the burdens carried, the creations chosen in fear, to lift to the energetic field as silt to the top of a glass. And when we claim this for you each, we invite you to claim in agreement to it. And this is the simple agreement you may claim:

It will be so.

On this day we choose to bear witness to each one present, as they are in truth beyond any names they have been given, creations of fear, burdens that they have carried and misidentified with or through. On this day we say your name, the true name of each of  you, so that you may lift to it, and in this lifting allow what was created in fear to be re- known, to be re-seen, to be reclaimed, in this, the Upper Room. This is the name we give you each:

I Am truth. I Am free. I Am expressing my true divine nature, and I give permission to allow anything that is not in alignment with my true name to be released to the higher octave where it may be re-known.

Again, Paul, on the count of three, and you may all join as you wish.

Now, one. Now, two. Now, three.

[The Guides tone through Paul.]

Be still and know. Allow. Allow. Allow. Be still and know. Allow. Allow. Allow.

God Is. God Is. God Is. It will be so.

Allow the field you hold to release as it needs to. The energy you feel moving around you is indeed the release. You are simply saying, “I have the right to this. It is not who I am. And I am re-known beyond the old idea. I have let go of what I believed was me to be re-known as I can only be in truth.”
