April Bender via integrated Overself

Another year has passed, another arc on the grand spiral of time. Your (April's) spirit/essence has lengthened profoundly in breadth as well as height and depth. It has been an expansive year and one of deep integration and joyful alignment. A time of receiving from Spirit and nourishing Soul unlike any other. You are no longer you, as you have grown/expanded beyond identity, beyond human description, beyond light/dark, beyond form, beyond many such illusory boundaries – while still contained within a human vessel. You have reclaimed the knowledge, the wisdom, the truth contained within the deepest parts of Self, your ancestral blood, your connection to Gaia, Source/Creator, and your connection to worldly and otherworldly allies, seen and unseen (heavenly and planetary). You have served as a bridge, a friend, a code bringer, collaborator, and healer between worlds and as a result, have restored your sense of empowerment, strength, vitality,  inner calm, and sense of belonging on this planet.

This is every human's divine birthright and intended role, though many still struggle to break through the fog (the counter influences and illusions both internal/external), and claim it. But this is indeed what the collective is striving toward. Not only the reintegration and healing of fragmentation and separation, but also the healing of relationships throughout the Web of Life in order to restore greater harmony between worlds. And to be candid, this is the only thing slowing down the actualization of the new paradigm, the ascended Earth experience, or the re-enchantment/sacralization of the world. Everything else has been given and continues to be gifted.

Many lightworkers as well as other spiritual initiates working for the greater good and upliftment of humanity and planetary conditions need to realize, as you did, that as a multidimensional being there is more than one aspect of Self, and that these Selves need to be retrieved, integrated and aligned in order to fully reclaim and actualize their divine birthright and ascend as well as to better aid in the ascension/restoration of planetary life.

The time has now come for all way-showers to become aware of these various aspects of Self, the various Orders and Hierarchies of Life/Spirit, and humanity's true role within Creation – at least to some degree. Or to put it plainly, it's time for the rounding out of one's spiritual/mystical education in anticipation of the next stage of human evolution – the soulful spiritual evolution/revolution that will see humanity throw off the shackles of illusion and claim its rightful place among Creation. But first, one must awaken to the full truth and glory of who they are. May they come to realize as you have, that your Higher Self (also known as “star or upper world walker” in other traditions) is only one aspect – there is also in the main the Physical Self, and the Dream/Underworld/Soulful Self.

The Higher Self walks and communes with the Heavenly/Cosmic Hierarchy and receives glimpses into the divine cosmic plan and overall cosmology; the Dream/Underworld/Soul Self walks and communes with the Divine Mother/Planetary Hierarchy and receives glimpses of the divine template for Earth/Gaia and this Self keeps one's vessel and one's energy vital and alive; lastly one's Physical Self serves as the manifest/material world bridge and point of expression/communication and integration between the other two. It is through the Physical Self that you express this inner/outer integration.

Most spiritual path initiates (in whatever tradition they work with) tend to focus and express through mostly two of these aspects of Self. But all three must be activated, brought into active partnership, aligned, and consciously worked with. Many lightworkers for instance, prefer only to commune with Higher Self and do not want to ground within the Earth/Gaia. There is too much pain, misery, suffering they say, instead they cannot wait to go home – and yet how are they to transmute it and complete their work if they do not want to get their feet (or chakras) dirty? They do not want to accept or embrace their full nature but by being born and incarnated into a human body they are as much of Earth (and soulful living) as Cosmic in origin (and spiritual living), and there is no avoiding passing through both those levels of initiation/education in order to further progress as individuals, as well as help the healing of this planetary world in the fastest and most effective way possible.
