Message received by Chris Maurus.
Teacher Ophelius: “Many of you (light workers) are being challenged now, and for some, it has been like a dark night of the soul, which seems to have lasted for more than a fortnight. Just when you think all hope is lost, morning finally dawns. For if you can stay the course, asking for help and diligently searching for the answers, you shall find them and come out the other side wiser and stronger. These challenges are not punishments, or tests of your faith, yet they are something you need to deal with as you begin your ascent — entering a new paradigm of spiritual development. Many of your beliefs have been shattered, and the old scaffolding has fallen away leaving you open for greater truths and opportunities which shall lead you to greater service in the Correcting Time.
“As you look back on these challenging times, you shall see how the hand of providence has mysteriously worked in your life and, how were it not for these ‘unfortunate’ events and circumstances you would not be in a position to help others and grow into the beautiful bright lights you now are. Your Indwelling Spirit is still guiding the ship and you are still the captain in charge of your life sailing toward the light of perfection. Captains make decisions and you must decide how you want your life to play out. Do not let your boat be tossed around by the waves — steer into them and cut through the wake!
“You all look as if you need a vacation! Many of you are so busy helping others that you have neglected to maintain your own wellbeing. Take some time and be good to ‘you.’ When you are feeling well and strong, you can better serve others. Be joyful today, my dear friends. Listen to music, eat well, take time to smell the roses and rejoice! There will be other challenges ahead, and so, for now, take a well-deserved break and recharge your batteries for the journey ahead.
“You shall find that as each new challenge comes, you shall handle it with more grace and spiritual maturity. You are growing wiser and becoming more like your Heavenly Father. Keeping your mind fixed on a greater, brighter future, having the assurance that you are a very powerful being because you have sonship with the Father, you are putting the wheels of the universe to work for you and stepping into your god given inheritance as a developing Finaliter.
“Finaliters are powerful beings that have achieved and overcome the challenges of time and have answered the call of the Universal Father to ‘Be perfect, as I AM perfect.’ Spiritual maturity is ‘final’ and all trust is placed in the hands of a Finaliter to know and execute Father’s perfect Will. With this trust is great power awarded as the divine gift of spiritual maturity and wise choosing. Keep your minds fixed on this sublime achievement as you hurdle over the challenges of planetary life, for within you lives the Fragment of all the creative power in the multi-verse.
“Peace and love to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”
