As we awaken as a conscious creator, we go through a conscious declutter of all the dead thoughts we accumulated as we slept, and reclaim our beautiful soul garden crafted by living divine thoughts.
As we slept we attributed many false attributes (opposite to our divine attributes), to ourselves and others. Our mind became like a garden overgrown with weeds. These attributes resulted from our faulty mental judgments in which we mistook our steps of growth as an embryonic soul for corrupted characteristics about ourself. Instead of discerning our stumbles as part of learning to become who we are, we made harsh judgments and assigned attributes to ourself that weren’t reflective of Truth. The acceptance of these attributes led to an endless stream of demeaning thoughts which shaped a degraded reality. They hung upon us like dirty and tattered garments hiding the beauty of perfection of our true Self.
As we awaken, our ability to discern thoughts of Truth versus thoughts of error grows more acute as the Light of our true Self grows brighter. This discernment from the shining Light of Christ (spirit of our true Self) takes us into a transformative stage in which our mind is decluttered, thus our reality, from these false attributes.
False attributes multiply through our thoughts when we accept them as true, put our faith in them and give our imagination to them. Therefore we remove them by taking these creative elements away from them and giving these creative faculties to the Truth. During this metamorphic stage, every situation, expectation, emotional response and thought that conveys a faulty attribute presents an opportunity to consciously replace a false attribute with a divine attribute. Because nothing is done outside our will, our will is actively engaged as our mind goes through this transition. For example, if we feel weakness or littleness, then we consciously replace it with the Truth that we are invincible and we are seeds of greatness.
Initially, the amount of clutter can be overwhelming. However, many erroneous thoughts come from a singular false attribute. For example, thoughts of being harmed, causing harm, fear, attack, weakness, blame, and anger all stem from the accepted attribute of vulnerability. By exchanging vulnerability for invincibility, the many snowballing thoughts disappear. We are the creators, not the created. There is nothing outside of us we are subject to, because everything outside of us is our creation.
By consistently embracing the powerful creative mental states of the Prayer of I Am, resting in emergence and giving gratitude for the Truth, all is accomplished. We are not alone during this metamorphic stage. The Light of our true Self (Christ Spirit) grows within us in accordance to our expanding awareness of Truth. It enlightens our vision to see past the filthy garments to our true Self. These garments can not cling to us because they are revealed for what they are, an illusion. There is nothing outside of us greater than this life-giving Spirit within us, therefore, this Spirit has victory over every illusion we see.
During this phase, we release expectations based on the past, because only Truth is. We release all false attributes we mistakenly attributed to ourselves and to others. We continually acknowledge our true Self as our only Self, one made in the likeness, beauty, holiness, and glory of God.
Throughout this process, we can be grateful we have been saved from the self we thought we made to take the place of our true Self. We can be grateful we are not alone, and the One within us will accomplish everything through us. We can be grateful that as expressions of Truth, our true nature is as incorruptible as Truth. Through this process, we reclaim our beautiful garden of divine attributes given and shared for the joy of all.
