Message from Maitreya:
It takes courage to have an incarnation on the Earth plane. Every soul on the Earth plane should be so proud of themselves because they have chosen a very difficult path in their soul growth. Why is this so? Because one has the Self when one incarnates into the physical body. The Self makes things harder for the soul and slows down soul growth, sometimes stopping it altogether. Why does the Self do this? Over many Earth years, the Self has mutated, much like a computer virus does in your computer, or a virus in your body. It becomes stronger and more devious as it learns through your incarnation. Originally, this was the survival instinct in humanity, harmless, an advanced warning in the body of danger. However, over the years of the Earth plane, this energy, for it is an energy, has ceased to be just an energy and has mutated until it is almost human.
Fortunately, the Self cannot survive when the body dies, so it does not go home with you into our world, your true home. It can, though, be a very manipulative energy when it is with you on the Earth plane. There is only one way to deal with the Self, and that is to raise your vibration to a higher level and learn to control it – to not give it any energy. The self feeds on the energy of the emotional body. Each time you react to a situation with emotion, you feed the Self. If you have fear in your life, your Self will use this against you, bringing it up in front of you when you want to make change. So many souls are stifled from making change in their lives because of the Self. Yet it can be controlled; it can be tamed.
You will never lose the Self until you die on the Earth plane. Even when you raise your vibration and go to a higher level of consciousness, you will still have the Self. That is why it takes courage to take an incarnation on the Earth plane. It is not an easy existence, but one can learn so much more quickly by taking an incarnation.
It is so rewarding to come back to our world knowing you at least attempted an incarnation. Some of you ask for the help of a Master to assist you in taming the Self. Yet even with a Master’s assistance and the assistance of others from our world, many still fall by the wayside and do not tame the Self.
How can you tame the Self? Do not criticize another. Do not judge another. Accept all souls as being in their Higher Self and see them as perfect even when at times they upset you greatly. Detach from the situation so that you may see this. Allow others to experience their own lives. Do not try to do it for them. Allow them to stumble and fall and learn what they need to learn. Do not support them so they do not learn from their own experiences. Control your emotional body; try not to react to emotional situations.
Your whole incarnation is meant to be one of compassion and love, but not to give in to the emotional body and the drama it likes to create. Face all of your fear. More than anything, love yourself, for the Self lives on your loathing of yourself if you have this trait. God loves you unconditionally, and God knows your life lessons and learning. Only God can decide if you have learned the lessons you chose to learn through your astrological natal chart, your life plan that you and you alone chose before your incarnation. Nobody else has the right to make judgment about you. Always remember that, if they do, then it is the Self that does it, nobody else, for the Higher Self would not waste energy on such a thing.
