“Let not your heart regret a single moment that you have lived, nor need you tarry in the past any longer. It is the present moment that holds your fulfilment.
Be at peace, for you are upon the path that your soul is choosing.”
I am waking up those energies within my being, my soul’s core, that have called mastery into my consciousness. Mastery has been present with me for some time. I painted a dragon called Mastery on my shamanic drum recently and when I wrote the words ‘Mastery Soul’ on the side, realised I had received the name of my new service, only the other way around, Soul Mastery.
Mastery brings energies that are reflected in the name, this is a word for me to explore on every level, to sit with, feel into. What does the word mastery bring deep into my being? What does it ignite?
Empowerment. A huge amount of assuredness, confidence and skill. A great deal of abilities. But I think that from a spiritual point of view, mastery is about mastering one’s conscious presence. Conscious presence is a term that’s coming up for me a lot.
This state of being is a natural remembering and returning. It is an unlearning. Unlearning patterns to the extent that one embodies a state of conscious presence without even trying. Mastery is not about trying or attempting, mastery is about moving with the flow of self, of being. It is about not getting in one’s own way, in any sense.
Becoming the soul, becoming the observer. Becoming the Creator. Becoming the eyes of the Creator. Inviting and allowing that. The Creator is looking and experiencing from the perspective of this piece of consciousness that is me. As though the ocean is focusing its awareness through a droplet of water that spins off from its body into the air, in a moment of separation, and the ocean is experiencing that sensation.
Mastery is ‘being’, realising, because we can’t become something we already are. It’s a question of taking off the filter that makes us see the world from a place of limitation, and ourselves from a place of limitation.
I have taken off a filter, I’m not sure how many filters there are, I think I’ve taken a few filters away, not even knowing that I was doing so. I believe that came out of soul integration coupled with inner child healing and abandonment healing.
When you are in this state, everything’s so easy. I don’t know yet how well I can attain this state when I’m with other people. Because, right now, I’m experiencing this state almost all the time and I’m on my own. I’ve just moved to live on my own for the first time in my life and don’t know anybody where I now live. Apart from the odd brief conversations with my neighbours and other random strangers, the only person I’m with is myself and that’s what I needed.
I needed a reset. I needed to be with myself so much more than I realised, to find out who I am, to let myself be myself. Those are some of the filters that I’ve taken off. The filters of having to be something other than my natural self because of other people influencing me and me responding to them whilst compromising myself. Sometimes, we need other people to reflect us, to learn from. Sometimes, we need space to breathe.
I will keep myself in conscious presence and then step back into a world of people at some point, but not yet. It’s like entering an experiment. We’ll see. It doesn’t matter what happens. From whatever happens, I move forward, and that’s all we do in any moment. We experience, and from whatever happens in that moment, we move forward. No presupposing, no assumptions, no judgements, no expectations, no thinking ahead or working it out. Just being.
[The image I felt best summed up conscious presence is that of my shamanic drum. It depicts my soul with her wings outstretched and her channel wide open. The black dragon, Mastery, protects her. This dragon exists in the energetic and made itself known to me a couple of years ago.
A few days ago, I asked my soul family to tell me something about the dragon energy of my soul story and this is what they said:
“Your soul is a dragon-walker. She has had a strong and abiding energy link of utter depth with one dragon since that dragon was born. He is Mastery, the black dragon that you are aware of. He remains present in your life and his energies are connecting with you more often. And they will continue to do so, for you are waking up those energies within your being, your soul’s core, that called Mastery into your consciousness. Mastery brings the energies that are reflected in his name.”
And it is from there that I decided to delve into the word mastery. The words at the top of this post also came from my soul family, I feel they are words for us all.]
