Errors Are Part of Life: It’s How We Respond to Them That Transforms Them Into Light

With each life lesson that confronts us, whether it lasts for a moment in time, twelve hours, or several weeks or months, we can all agree that we learn and grow enormously. Each lesson enables us to slough off another sheath of density which may have been preventing us from clarity and infinite knowledge and wisdom. Before now we have thought we needed them for our protection but they really keep us from revealing our own brilliance. Read on for the inspiring example of one outrageous being who experienced life lessons much tougher than most of experience to become an ascended master.

In fact, we don’t have to wait until densities are completely transformed into light through the process that life lessons present us. We can also continue to remove them by our intention and command for the ultimate revealing of the ALL that we are. Through our willingness to allow and to be open we can bring purifying light into our beings to reveal more and more of ourselves.

If we choose to be proactive in the transformation of character flaws into virtuous light, we'll be able to see ourSelves more vividly perhaps a bit sooner than if we hadn’t. They key is to not try to force or make anything happen. Once we begin efforting, our joy is diminished and our ability to create is impeded. Almost always, when we try too hard, our devotions don't have the same radiance that those that are organically and authentically sparked do.

I always remember reading the ascended master Ramtha’s own story in what is called the “white book,”—the story of the lifetime in which he ascended his physical body.

Ramtha was a Lemurian warrior who fought the Atlanteans more than 35,000 years ago. Leading a vast army of soldiers for many years, he was a great conqueror until he was betrayed and almost killed. Ramtha then spent the next seven years in isolation recovering so great was his injury. During this time, he observed life, people, families and nature. He observed how we are an integral part of nature. It was this realization that led him to many mystical experiences including clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, and intimate encounters with the wind. On one day he led his army to the Indus River, taught his soldiers everything he knew for 120 days, said farewell, rose into the air and in a bright flash of light ascended before their eyes.

With all of Ramtha’s battling and conquering, we would think he had committed maybe even more than his fair share of mistakes. He might have been well justified to war on others, I’m not sure, but along the way there may have been some ugly things done.

When I remember this story, it really helps me put the mistakes I’ve made and which I’ve thought were so grave into perspective. I was raised to be good and obedient and to never ruffle any feathers (not all of those line up exactly with who I am!), but because of my upbringing and maybe residue from other lifetimes, when I’ve messed up it has been so big for me I just can’t even tell you how much. But I've been getting over all that.

Almost always, the very things we think are so “bad” in our lives are the very things that take us right to the mastery we seek and desire. Ramtha became an ascended master that lifetime. If he can do it, so can we. He has spoken through his oracle to remind us of this.

However ugly or dark or sad our life lessons are, they can be something like a nectar of sweetness for us but only if we choose to view them that way. We can know that no matter what the past has looked like, it’s all part of our own divine plan which we each so carefully designed for ourselves before incarnating in order to learn, grow, evolve, master and ascend!
