“Both humanity and the Earth hold more light now than they ever have. Are you finding this hard to believe?”
That’s how the Akashic Records laid the groundwork for the question we each answered last night on our monthly Akashic Gathering call. Our topic was “Holding More Light.”
Yes, there certainly are times when I find it hard to believe we are holding more light. Do you agree?
And after acknowledging the tremendous turmoil around the world, and signs that we have “trashed” the planet, the Records went on to explain why we might:
“Major increases in frequency surface old dynamics vibrating at lower frequencies than that of the new energies. In other words, a clearing of old energies follows every significant download of more light. Are the frequencies lower at points in the clearing than they were before the new light came in? Sure. Are the frequencies higher after the clearing and integration phases are complete? Absolutely.”
So, last night’s assignment was to do our own exploration of how these concepts relate to our own lives and spiritual growth. We each opened our individual Records and asked how we are holding more light than we had two years to six months ago. We also asked what darkness may have come up for us in the process of integrating that light.
A Broader Bandwidth
For me, that’s when this paradox really hit home. It simply hadn’t occurred to me that holding more light would include holding darkness.
Releasing more darkness to hold more light? Yes, that I expected. Holding more darkness while, at the same time, holding more light? Now that was news.
Here’s how my Records explained it to me:
“You assumed in asking to hold more light that you would release what is dark within you to make room for more light.” And that’s true, I did.
Well, it turns out that’s only part of the process.
“You also assumed that you would simply experience higher highs.” Also true.
“What you didn’t realize was that in holding more light, you would also be capable of experiencing more darkness, darkness beyond what you’d known before. And you can do that now because your newfound light enables you to transmute darkness you previously didn’t have the energy to touch. Holding more light not only means higher highs, but it also means a capacity for lower lows. It’s means you hold a much broader bandwidth.”
A broader bandwidth. Aha!
My Records continued, “A broader bandwidth, over time, means more and more humans will be able to reach and hold frequencies while still in their bodies that previously were attainable only to beings beyond physical form. This is part of the evolution of humanity – to hold more light while still in the body and have a fuller bandwidth of physical experiences on earth.”
Darkness Before the Light of Dawn
And I wasn’t alone in these insights. Many of us have experienced, and are experiencing now, this “darkness before the dawn” phenomenon, and we certainly talked about that last night. And we also discussed being more comfortable with darkness and discomfort during and after the dawn. Most importantly, we realized that we shouldn’t let that cloud our experience of our new light – nor our ownership of it.
For this new light, these higher frequencies – they do not preclude the darkness. They integrate it, and transmute it, and they also allow us to experience it in new ways when it serves a higher purpose.
I have a feeling I will be integrating these concepts for a while. My immediate hope, though, is that they help me breathe through my frustrations when I turn on the news, or when I feel new negative emotions that I’d worried meant I wasn’t doing enough of my own spiritual work.
And, I’d love to read your thoughts, if you’d care to share.
