Maitreya Wisdom Card #81 – The Self
What is the Self? Where did it come from? Self is the animal survival instinct of the human being. Over the Earth years it has become a most formidable opponent. The Self is part of the human physical and emotional body. Once the soul leaves the Earth plane, there is no Self. The Self is not attached to the soul, only the Higher Self is. The Self creates illusion. It will have you believing the most preposterous things. It will have you believing you are not the guilty party, when you are. It will reason with you to try and get you to see its point of view. It will even argue with your Higher Self, and if you are not at a higher rate of vibration, your Higher Self will not be able to retaliate with truth.
The Self never thinks of anything but itself. All it can see is its own pain, suffering, difficulty, how it is being punished and how people are creating problems for it. It can see all of the faults of others, but never its own faults!
The Self sees itself as perfect. It will argue with you to preserve its own truth. It can never see a positive outcome of any situation! The list is endless of what the Self will do to reign supreme. And what of the Higher Self, what does it do? It does nothing! Absolutely nothing! The Higher Self does not have to justify itself, because it can stand in front of God and know it is telling the truth. The Higher Self will point out your own faults, but will never point out the faults of others. It sees the suffering you go through and the difficulties in your life as lessons to learn from. It always has a positive outcome for every situation. It never judges, it sits quietly and lets the world pass by, while it focuses on what needs to be handled in the now moment.
The Self will feed the ego; the Higher Self has no ego. When you get to the stage of having no ego, of not believing the Self’s publicity machine, then you have raised your vibration to a higher level. It is at this level that you can now see through the illusion, and recognize the reason as to why things are happening in your life. When you have no emotional response to what is happening – for the Self is all emotion – then you are truly in the Higher Self. At this vibration, direct, high-level communication with the Masters becomes possible, and also the beginning of communication with God.
To enable the Higher Self to come in, you need to do the work necessary to remove the Self. That work requires you to be true and honest to yourself, and not to let the Self control you through fear, doubt, insecurity, and the emotional body. This is the only way to do it.
The Self uses the ego part of you to manipulate you and your thinking. The ego is the part of you that is attached to the Self, but is NOT the Self. It is a different energy, and often thinks it is better than anyone else, or that life will be a certain way. Then the ego is crushed to learn that things did not turn out as it wanted. The ego is connected to the energy of the planet Neptune. Neptune is the planet of illusion, and the ego dwells in illusion, it lives in a dream which never becomes reality! You can be told of your destiny, but if the ego or the Self is in control, then that destiny can never manifest. The Self and the ego sit side-by-side in the subconscious mind, and they are there to stop you from moving forward and achieving your destiny.Humanity could be living a better life, with the knowledge of how to defeat the Self and the ego!
In order for the Self to be eradicated, you need to be in the energy of a highly trained channel and the energy of a Master. Only this energy will enable the transformation to take place. This card is in your reading today, because it is time for you to start addressing how the Self part of you is influencing your life and your perceptions with emotional manipulation.
