What determines Mastery?
The hallmark of Mastery is when no ego is involved.
My biggest concern surrounding Jonah’s Sirian Energy System was not the system itself, but me. I did not want to be lulled into the trappings of the egoic constructs of fame and fortune and I wondered if I would have the fortitude to hold steadfastly to who I was if the system were to become as popular as I anticipated.
So, I vowed that I would not begin attunements until I was confident I would not cause harm to anyone. I knew I would need to be as clear as possible otherwise I would taint this system with my own insecurities – they would bleed through – and at the rate I was going, this was going to take a while. I just seemed to go from one crazy life lesson to another.
Jonah informed me very early on that I was like the Phoenix: when I was faced with adversity, I could dive down to the depths of my Soul, face myself, conquer my fears and pain, and rise from the ashes renewed and reborn. Frankly, I had never given myself that much credit; from my perspective, I just tripped and fell and always managed to get back up on my feet again. Then off I would go – taking the most convoluted trajectory – to my next calamity – which was inevitable, of course.
From that moment on, however, I could recognize the framework when I found myself completely immersed in chaos yet again. I could now consciously witness myself going through these metamorphic processes. I have experienced some of life’s most challenging tragedies and although I did not recognize them as gifts at the time, they were indeed gifts, for without them, I may have never developed the depth of empathy I have today. I do not believe it is possible to be authentically and genuinely present for others if you do not have a personal frame of reference for pain and suffering. Empathy creates safety.
The most liberating moment of my life was when I realized I had no desire for fame nor fortune; what I did want however, was to be of service to others – but doing so from a place of personal power and self-awareness. It was by working through my life experiences that I arrived at this realization with intense clarity. My initial fears had been somewhat distorted: what I had been afraid of all along was losing myself for any reason.
I am not a master of anything, but I do strive for mastery within, without and between every transformative experience. Pain will come and pain will go. One may choose to live, or One may chose to die; choosing to do nothing is still a choice.
From Jonah’s perspective, Mastery is a state of being – when one becomes part of a group consciousness for the good of All where there is no ego present whatsoever.
One day, Jonah and I were having a very enlightening conversation about energy modalities, and why people – including myself – were suddenly discovering abilities they did not even know they possessed. The conversation turned to one they found most troublesome: there were, they said, well-intentioned individuals on our planet transmuting negative energy into love or positive energy, without possessing a true understanding of the process. It was a concern for them because doing so without knowledge or mastery inevitably created further problems that could otherwise be avoided.
“Do not transmute energy unless you have achieved Mastery!” they warned.
I understood the teaching loud and clear, yet I found it perplexing then, that everyone I knew who had taken an energy course of some kind was now describing themselves as “a healer.”
“So, what is a healer then? Can a person heal another?”
“No. That is simply not possible. It is one’s free will and willingness to heal or change that determines whether a condition will be resolved and integrated. Healing simply does not happen in any other way.”
I clearly remember what Jonah said:
“Does the practitioner facilitate healing? Absolutely! Does the practitioner heal anybody? Absolutely not!”
A true Master walks humbly.
