Is Earth on Your Shoulders?

Dear Ones,

You no longer need to carry the world on your shoulders.

Many of you are experiencing a heaviness you cannot attribute to happenings in your life. You are trying to understand why you cannot shake or shift sadness that is so deeply ingrained in you that you feel hopeless, angry and fearful.

That heaviness, that uncomfortable feeling is you assuming you are responsible for all earth and earth beings. That without your assistance, the earth would fall into a heaviness that is beyond anything you can imagine.

Once again, it is an issue of self-love and listening to that little voice within you. You are no longer the only or one of the few humanoids responsible for depositing Universal love throughout the globe.

For many of you have fulfilled that role time after time. You are the god/goddesses of love that seeded earth for this time. And each time you performed that role throughout the ages, you were either alone or one of a very small number. You did have the weight of earth upon your shoulders then.

As we discussed before, the earth is your creation and experiment.

So whenever you en masse felt the need for an injection of Universal love on earth one or a few of you would volunteer to perform that task.

That phase is over and has been for many months. Yet, because you are so attuned to earth, you feel the need to reduce the anguish of others starting to awaken – or to move them more quickly into 5D. Neither is possible for you are no longer able to perform that role. It is a bit like after being promoted to company manager you also want to complete the role you had previous to your promotion.

You do not have time nor energy to backtrack to a role you completed years ago. For once you initiated your personal 5D journey, you transitioned out of your earth caretaker role.

Yes, yet another caretaker role you must abandon now. For indeed, the earth is as capable of taking care of itself as are others. A piece you have neglected to accept fully. For you now are starting to accept that other entities can take care of themselves, but not yet that earth, as a whole, can also. If you will, the earth is your baby. And you do not wish to sense that your baby is unhappy.

The unhappiness you are now sensing is merely earth proclaiming uniqueness and individuality – just as is true for you.

And the unhappiness you are sensing through many entities of the globe is merely other beings awakening to their potential, their new beings. As if the blindfold of continuing service to anyone but themselves is being ripped off instead of being gently removed as was true for you.

Many of you feel as if your blindfold of continuing service was ripped off also. But in comparison to what is happening now – yours was somewhat of a “walk in the park.”

Of course, you are angry at such a statement for you suffered for months, possibly even years. In a sense, you opened the wound of knowing that there is a more loving way to live on earth. And those following are ripping off the bandage you applied to that wound.

Even though this is not now a “going gently into the night” process, it is not your process. You are at a different place for a reason. You are the beacons for anyone who cares to sense a better way. It is not your place to enmesh yourself in earth chaos. Such was your caretaker role for eons – either as earth observer or participant. That role has been completed.

Your new role, your promotion is to beacon of light. For indeed, instead of suffering and gnashing your teeth for a few months or days, you were embroiled in that role for eons. That role is over. Your new role is to be a beacon of possibilities for those who wish to follow. Your new role is to live in joy, to display to others the glorious possibilities of new you and New Earth.

Others will complete their painful stage in months or perhaps a couple of years instead of the eons you devoted to shifting earth to Universal love. Those following are completely capable of doing so if they wish. Carrying them will not assist them in moving to their joy – it will only delay their agony. Just as is true for those parents who ensure that their child never suffers or fails. Such makes for a wonderful childhood, an uncomfortable family dynamic during that childhood and an amazingly detached adulthood for that child.

So it is now. You cannot take away the pain and growth of others without stunting or stopping their growth. They will survive. In truth, they will eventually thrive despite their cries to the contrary. Do you remember trying to teach your child to pick up his or her toys? It was such agony with wails of anger, “I can’t. It’s too hard. NO” until many of you just completed the task for your child – resulting in even more wailing the next time.

You cannot carry someone over this phase. You can only display self-love in the hopes that they will notice and emulate. It is not your role to return to those who do not – and try to shine your light more brightly. Your only role is to shine your light for those who wish to see.

And you will shine your light by the joy you express, feel and display in your world. You are no longer saving or preparing the earth for this wondrous transition. You are the beacons of earth with no need or energy to pick up the toys of earth. That was a role you satisfied before initiating your transition in this lifetime. Go in joy. Live in joy despite the anguish of others.

That role will be difficult for you initially, just as was true when you started teaching your child to pick up their toys. But if you continue to pick up their toys, you will not have the energy to be the beacon you now are. Living in joy and expressing that joy will do more for earth entities than any caretaking you can envision. So be it. Amen.

  1. Thank you so much for your kind and helpful response. I’ve learnt a little of this from mindfulness, but will go into it further and see what results!
    With all good wishes

    • Hello Faith,
      I’m glad this helped. It spoke to me, as well.
      My favorite teacher is Eloheim, and they have lots of practical tools that I use every single day to navigate my world. One of them, “I am a chooser” would help, as in, I choose my reactions. Acknowledge you have it and move on, choose something else or redirect like we do with kids. Sometimes our minds are like undisciplined children and need redirecting.
      We are in charge of our own inner life and have the power to choose our reactions. I can choose to follow the path of my negative emotions. I can choose to sit on my favorite hamster wheel of unhappy thoughts and emotions and think and think and think – which solves nothing, by the way, because no new thoughts ever come up on that hamster wheel – or I can choose something else. I can find something that feels better (also an Abraham teaching). Which leads to even more better feelings. It changes your vibration to choose in another direction. And if you find yourself on the downward spiral once more, choose again. And again. Sometimes I have to choose for a very long time before I get to that feeling good point.
      We are powerful creators in our own right, not victims. But we can choose to stay in an unpleasant feeling or state of mind instead of accepting that we can make different choices and that no one else has the power to tell us what to feel or think or be. Habits have really deep neural pathways that only can be broken when we start to choose different reactions or thoughts away from them. So, be a chooser! Make new neural pathways!

      From today’s Tool Tuesday (and out of one of their books) on Eloheim and Veronica’s facebook page:

      Today is Tuesday so it’s time to review an Eloheim tool!!!

      This Emotion is a Choice

      One of the best ways to practice this tool is when you’re watching TV or a movie—one of those things that are very, very carefully designed to elicit a certain emotion in you. Be very aware of the fact that you’re being manipulated. Recognize that the emotion you’re having is an emotion that has many layers to it. One layer is manipulated creation and another layer is habit and another layer is authentic empathy with the person or situation.
      Let yourself have the emotion, but know why you’re having it. If all of a sudden you feel sad or upset and you don’t know why you’re feeling that way, then ask yourself, “Is there any good reason to be having this emotion? And if there isn’t, then what can I ascertain about the state I’m in? This emotion has no basis in the reality of this moment.”

      Your society places a lot of credence in “dealing with your emotions,” without any real investigation of what you’re feeling or why, or that you have any choice in the matter. This is where our example of the math problem comes in. What if we say, “What’s 9,897,209.5 times 8,239,203?” You wouldn’t take the first number that comes to mind as the right answer. Yet you’ll take the first emotion that comes in as an indisputably correct position. If you find yourself in an emotion that doesn’t seem actually relevant to the moment, be kind to yourself about it. Just remind yourself, “Oh yeah, that’s right, the first emotion that trips along isn’t necessarily the one I want to run with.”

      Veronica writes:
      OH, BOY! Yep, this one is a good one. The freedom! The freedom of saying, “I get to choose.” As a very sensitive person, I never even thought it was possible not to be swept away by other’s emotions, feelings, or attitudes. This tool really helps me be conscious of how those things are affecting me.
      Becoming skilled at neutral observation helps me to recognize when I am experiencing an emotion that doesn’t feel good in my body. Where before, I might feel anger and try to make a story about that feeling so I could understand it, now I have some space to look at the feeling and simply label it: anger rising into tight shoulders. No story needed. Breathe. Thank the body for a signal. Choose to admit the feeling without judgment. Be curious together. Choose to love myself and the other by being vulnerable in the fact of the emotion, and choose gratitude for the closeness that arises instead of the anger-story’s isolation.


I'd love to hear from you!
