This is about the recognition
of the Divine Self. About what the Divine Self
is - and how can it be practical when applied to our
There is so much on the subject of Higher Self and yet
this is different than the Divine Self. The place within
each of us that is Divine is not the same as the Spirit
connection we have to God, which is our Higher Self,
instead, it is the Divine knowledge we each have as
The recognition of that place is quite important to each
of us for it leads us to areas of our lives where we
would not necessarily go.
First, it is important to recognize the Divine Self. Your
Divine Self knows more than your mind-self does about how
you are connected to each other, to the planet, to
nature, to all things around you. This Divine Self is a
connection to all that is with you on earth. It is the
Divine recognition of where you came from and where you
are going. You may wish to call Divine Self "soul
memory." It is something you have brought with you
through all of your lifetimes no matter who you are.
Your Divine Self is much like a parenting factor in your
life. It has knowledge to guide, to show you which way to
go on your journey. The recognition of this place within
yourself is the important aspect along the spiritual path
for if you cannot recognize your Divine Self, how can you
recognize the Divine Self in other? Or in anything around
you? The planet, the guides, your children, your parents.
The Divine within each of us is that place which is our
potential. The potential of our soul. That is quite a
different thing from our Spiritual potential.
After we have recognized that this Divine Self exists,
that there is a place within us that we will call Divine,
we must find out why it is important to us. What can it
do for us? Why does it make our life on this planet
Suhamaraan says it makes our life better by working from
a unity standpoint rather than one of separateness. Our
personal self, the self that we consider "me"
separates us from other human beings, from other
planetary creatures, from plants, it separates us from
our world. And how can we be working within our world as
one if we are separating. We must be able to recognize
Divine Self and the "we" of "me" in
order to continue in a more united fashion. Earth at this
time, seems to be missing the basic concept of "we
are all in this together as one."
It is a place, the Divine Self, that exists within each
person. And in each person, this place can reach out to
others in compassion, and in healing. Your Divine Self is
also your place of healing. Your Divine Self is the place
in which you can process information from Spirit and see
how it applies to your soul, to your physical life.
Before we get to more aspects of
Divine Self, we must talk to many of you who go around
speaking with the "my" consciousness, the place
within yourself that recognizes "me" and does
not clear the way to the Divine Self.
This means your emotions,
your forgiveness, your anger. All of these "me"
consciousness emotions need to be worked through and let
go of before you can work fully with your Divine Self to
reach your potential.
Every person contains a Divine Self - in the same amount
- yet it is the recognition and the application of this
that makes a difference. So when you meet another on the
street, or in the supermarket, or at school, or in the
workplace, recognize this one as the Divine Self also,
with as great a Divinity as you have. Recognition of
Divinity isn't necessary for it to exist, but it does
need to be recognized in order to be used. That place
that you call "intuition" resides within the
So, of course, now you can see how we can use Divine
Self. We can use it in a way which unites us with other
realms and know how they apply to us on earth. If that
knowing is not processed through Divine Self there is no
bridge and no true understanding so there is no
Some call the Divine Self, "Christ
Consciousness." We could say it is a recognition of
"Oneness." Please remember it is not
"Higher Self." Higher Self is your Spirit, from
where you came, from the Light. Divine Self has come with
you, has been brought with you to this planet. It is
contained in your soul.
Your Divine Self can heal any of the wounds you have
encountered throughout your life. Your Divine Self can
heal "other." But it can't heal the planet,
can't heal any of the wounds that are occurring at this
time in your world, unless you recognize and start to
work through your Divine Self, not only in your
meditations, but also in your communicating with
"other" in every interaction you have.
Once you work through your Divine Self and present it to
"others," they will recognize it for it is
something that they also have. Barriers such as color,
race, religion, creed, gender will be broken through if
we can relate to others through our Divine Self rather
than personal self. If we can relate through the
"we" rather than the "me." For if
"we" have a problem, then "we" will
try to fix it. Yet if "you" have a problem,
then "you" must fix it.
Now, in many New Age communities, they say, "It is
your stuff!" or "It is my stuff..." And we
say, "This is not my problem for if this person was
dealing with 'their' stuff, they would not come to me
Yet from the expanded vision of the Divine Self the
answer would truly be, "If it is your stuff, it is
mine, for we are not separate."
This consciousness that you call "Oneness"
comes from the Divine Self because It understands this
concept completely and yet usually on earth that concept
is kept within your personal boundaries rather than
allowing you to unlimit yourself and work through the
Divine Self with "other."
