Many of us who have connected to information like the one presented here, have felt for a long time that life is meant to be lived differently: More loving, with a greater sense of unity and a greater sense of freedom and happiness.
I am sure that a lot us of us have passionately worked on becoming better versions of ourselves, more humane instead of just human, constantly raising the standards of what this means to us.
By now, many of us understand that most of what we knew about ourselves and about reality is based on illusion, is based on programming. We also know that everything we create from this space does not cut it in the end. It does not create real change. It might create a sense of moving forward or a short moment of happiness, but ultimately what has been created is still finite and will continue to keep us locked down. No matter what we do, no matter how hard we try, as long it comes from programming, it simply won’t help us forward. We just keep going round and round on the repetitive hamster wheel of life. This is inherent to the design of matrix, illusions and programming.
In our quest to rise above and disentangle from everything we have allowed the matrix to put upon us, we have worked on letting go of ego, personality, identification, mind, and so much more for our true Self to be able to shine through.
We also know that it is important to be very vigilant on a continuous basis because we’re so used to the old way of doing things that old neural pathways will activate near automatically. When they do, we might even believe that at that point it is us doing the choosing, but basically we are just following the impulses of the program. If, however, we consciously choose to act differently than what our normal behaviour would be, we are able to override these pathways and in the end collapse the personality with all its patterns.
A less known concept through which we constantly lock ourselves back into the matrix is identification with attributes. As has been shared in previous teachings, at the moment of birth we lose half of our energy merely because of arriving in a male of a female body. The 50 % energy that we lose is used to overlay particles around us and to create attributes connected to and interacting with our personality.
A definition of attributes taken from Releasing Your Matrix, taught by Adamus in the Alchemy of Ascension Series:
Attributes, very simply put, are potentials become manifest; just before they become manifest they hang in the 4th dimensional realm over – you could say – three-dimensional particles such as matter appearing to you as separate. So these attributes surrounding three-dimensional particles are essentially what drive you to desire or to loathe something, your likes and dislikes, are all connected to these particles, which are like a small programming code overlaying any three-dimensional object and within that category I also mean objects as emotional fields, which we of course all consider three-dimensional as well.
Attributes are little programming nodes, which are connected to your personalities, which have of course grown throughout the years and will inform your personality – which is usually in old energy days running the show, and sometimes even to this day – whether it is appropriate for it to be attracted or not attracted to an object within the 3D realm. The interaction between attributes and personality will be such that a personality will only be attracted to those attributes within 3D objects that will make it more narrow over time.
Being aware of attributes, and especially of their purpose, can help us tremendously with disentangling from the matrix. Knowing that every like and dislike is programmed and strengthened by attributes can help us think twice before we follow one of these impulses based on preference. If instead we purposefully do the opposite, it helps us to reclaim this energy that was ours to begin with and we can start the process of disentanglement.
Of course it is not about not being able to enjoy something. Let’s take a cup of coffee as an example. It is beautiful to be able to truly enjoy a cup of coffee. It is, however, quite likely that enjoying this cup of coffee comes from personality or patterning, as long as we have not seriously worked on changing our habits and reclaimed this energy that was taken from us to form attributes.
As students of ascension we move through quite some changing situations, for instance regarding food or coffee. The food intake varies regularly, and there are times when we drink quite a lot of coffee and other times when coffee is totally off the menu. Sometimes this is a personal choice or upon the advice from our ascended teachers. Sometimes it is something that we choose as a group or it comes in as an advice that is given to everyone.
It is always very helpful to recognize how much we can be connected with or even addicted to a certain type of food or a habit and to notice how easy it actually is to just flow with the changes, to break free from a habit or to let go of its attributes. We often find that the challenge mostly comes from the mind. It is fairly easy to replace the thoughts the mind feeds you with thoughts that are the opposite and create a neutral perspective of what you want to let go of.
Imagine the freedom you’ll be able to feel once it is you consciously choosing for a cup of coffee or whatever it will be and imagine how much more you will be able to enjoy it.
