“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
We are elevating our consciousness slowly and deliberately, because we like to savor each and every moment of that movement upward. We do not face the same challenges that you do there on Earth, however, and that does make it easier on us to be in a state of joy, while also evolving and becoming more of who we really are. You face challenges to spur on growth because if you just got everything you wanted there in the physical, there would be no reason for you all to grow spiritually. You could get very caught up in all of the bright and shiny toys of physical reality. And with all that you have there on Earth, you could remain occupied for decades in the pursuit of and the enjoyment of all of the toys you have available to you.
So instead, you present a challenge to yourself. Perhaps that challenge is health related, or relationship related, and the other big one that you have is your financially-related challenges. Whatever it is that you face, when you are not getting what you want there in the physical, you do tend to reach for the spiritual. You do tend to pray or meditate or start down a path that will lead to more awareness of your true nature as an infinite and eternal being. So these hardships that you face in your life are meant to get you to go deeper, to go further in your spiritual advancement. And if you see them in that way, you can embrace them. You can recognize that you still have some growth to do, no matter where you are on your journey.
No matter how much you have accomplished, there is still more ground to cover. And most people want to get to the fifth dimension so that they can have all the toys that they want all the time, so that there won’t be any more challenges like the ones you face on Earth today. We are not going to say that you want to complete the shift for the wrong reasons, but certainly a better reason to complete the shift would be to have the experience of becoming more of your true and whole self, and you can do that right now. You can feel for that version of yourself right now. You do not have to wait for something or someone to come along and free you from the bondage of the third and fourth dimensions in order to feel yourself as a fifth-dimensional being right now.
But most people will be content to wait and to continue to ask, ‘When is it finally going to happen?’ The truth is that it is happening, and if you are not benefitting from the challenges and hardships that you face, then you are missing the opportunity to enjoy the ride by reaching deep within yourselves for what is there, for what takes you to that next level of consciousness without anything outside of you changing. Now, if you can get excited about that, you can shift with ease and with joy in your heart, and you won’t need anything outside of you in order to feel the way that you want to feel. That is the key to living happily ever after, whether it’s on Earth, in the Pleiades, in our system, or in any star system in the galaxy.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
