ONE WHO SERVES (Channeled by James McConnell)
Om, mani, padme, hum; om, mani, padme, hum, hum, hum.
Greetings to you. One Who Serves here with you, and Shoshanna is also here, standing by, ready to assist in her wonderful ways of doing so that has added so much to these discourses that we are having with you. And we are so thankful that she has decided to, or rather, that JoAnna, has decided to allow for this process to happen here. So we will continue on with the show as the saying goes.
We wish to address something here that has come up in your conversation earlier. Hah, hah! Surprise! You didn’t think we were going to do that? But certainly we are going to, because it is important that you understand more and more that you are on the cusp, people, you are on the cusp of these great many changes. And you are going to need more and more to let go of everything that can be considered any type of an attachment at all. You will not ascend if you have attachments. We will say that very clearly now. You cannot ascend, full ascension now, not go through the ascension process, but you cannot fully ascend until all your attachments are gone. You cannot step into the ring-pass-not and pass through until all your attachments are gone. Now, that may seem like a very daunting task to you. And from your point of view, your three-dimensional consciousness, it is overwhelming to you to even think about that. But Sugot Gu Ra Ru said some time ago through this one, James, very simply, and this was years and years ago (what, Cynthia, maybe 20 years ago or so? Something of this nature?) and said two simple things: learn to control your thoughts, and learn to release your attachments. Let go of your attachments. Those two things. And when you have accomplished that, you are ascended. But, now, from your three-dimensional understanding, many of you are saying, “how can we control our thoughts?” Our thoughts let go all kinds of crazy ways and you have this chatter going on, and all of that to control your thoughts? But it is not as difficult as you think it is as you continue to raise your vibrations. It becomes easier and easier and easier to do, because at some point your thoughts will match your vibration, and your vibrations will match your thoughts. See? That is how it works. And the attachments that come from your three-dimensional illusionary programs that are here will also diminish as your vibrations and thoughts increase. You see how this works? So it will be somewhat more of an effortless effort the more that you continue to move up in vibration. And it will come easier and easier to you in that respect. Do you need at this time to work on it? Yes! You do. You need to work on this whenever you can. You need to work on controlling your thoughts. You need to work on now letting go of all attachments.
And names are attachments. Now that does not mean that you are not going to take your name with you through the ascension, you will. But the attachment to the name is what you will let go of. The attachment to who you may have been in past times you will let go of, for there will be no reason to have it anymore other than to know that it is. Whether you were Cleopatra, whether you were King James, whether you were Jeshua, whether you were whatever it might be, or connected to them in any respect, it matters not at this point.
Except, and this is a big except, it matters only to you and within you, not to anyone else around you what they may think or anything about this. You know the truth within yourself and that is what is important. But only if it comes to you within yourself. If it comes to you from another person saying, “oh, you were this or you were that,” pay no attention to that until it fully resonates within you. And then it will mean something. And then you will take that on through the ascension process and through the full ascension when that time comes when the frequencies, when the vibrations increase enough.
Ok, Shoshanna, anything to add here?
SHOSHANNA (Channeled by JoAnna McConnell): Shoshanna has a message from the this Great One, Queen of Mercy, that the most valuable thing for each of you to do is have compassion for yourself. Have mercy for yourselves. Have love for yourselves. Embody compassion for YOU, as it is your pain and suffering that you must have compassion for to transmute that pain and suffering. The attachment with the pain, the attachment with the suffering, the compassion that we feel for you for this great works that you have embarked on, with this great undertaking that is so necessary for the entire movement of all the universes, all the galaxies you have taken on. It is very difficult for you. You must understand the necessity for compassion for you, for yourself of the great travails you have embarked upon in your past, in your present, and in your future. Have mercy upon yourselves for the difficulty that has arisen from this great undertaking and this difficult third realm, this difficult chaotic third realm. We ask you now to simply understand the compassion you need for you, and let that embody you, and as it embodies you, it embodies all.
OWS: Wonderful. Wonderful. All is one, and one is all. Are there questions now for One Who Serves and Shoshanna?
Guest: I would like to say something.
OWS: It is in form of a question?
Guest: It is not a question, actually I want to thank you first for bringing that out about attachment, because I felt energy shift in myself and in the group when we started discussing that matter. And I think that matter is still very sensitive to the group and to me too. In reality, I am one, and I am one with everyone. So it doesn’t matter, but I am going to thank you for bringing that up and just mentioning it. But we need to ascend and we need detachment from all this attachment. Thank you, ashanti, and thank you Shoshanna.
OWS: You are most welcome.
Someone spoke earlier about that this is the “hard times” or this is the “hard work to do,” here. And you have had these advancements now, these Advances, which are advancements, for some time now, and each one is building upon the next one, the one before it, leading to one again and again and again. And if you notice, those of you who have been attending these advancements, they are getting more and more difficult in some ways because you are reaching deeper, and deeper, and deeper within yourselves and finding those things within you that you did not want to look at, that you are not wanting to possibly let go of.
And the ego is very crafty, you might say. It does everything that it can to hold onto you. It is such as the James was given by us to use that movie analogy, your “Devil’s Advocate,” here, and it is the same thing. In that case, it was the devil, in this case it is the ego. And the ego tries everything it can to hold on. But you see, the ego must let go. It is not going to go away, it is always going to be a part of you. But that lower part of your ego, those lower chakra centers, are going to eventually need to let go in order to move on into your ascension. The ego cannot go through the ascension as it is now. Everything that is in those lower chakra centers are based on programming and attachments. This is why you must lift the chakra centers up into the higher chakras: the 4th, the 5th, the 6th, 7th, and beyond. And this is the process that you are all going through here, and why you attend these Advances like this. Again, you are dealing with some hard stuff. You dealt with some hard stuff that came up in the last Advance and you moved through it. And now you are dealing with something else. The ego is attempting to break in another way, what the James might call “coming in the back door” here, and is attempting to hold on, hold onto its identification.
The ego wants to be identified, you see? This is why we as the One Who Serves that have taken on that title, we do not share our names or who we were or anything of this nature with anyone else other than this group. I myself have shared with this group the one name that I was. I was other ones before as well, not going to share those with you at this time. And the others are not ready to share theirs yet either. Although one did share with the James just only here for now.
But it is important to know that you are all moving through these advancements here and continuing to raise your vibrations. And you will come upon these harder challenges that will come upon you and create some concern within yourself and you will begin possibly to feel like you are being chastised or being discredited. And that is okay. It matters not. This is what we need you to understand. It does not matter one bit what others think of you, not one. You see? It matters not what we think of you. We have no purpose in you, so we are not disappointed or anything by anything that you would do. We, being all of the Ascended Masters, the Archangels, the Agarthans, the Galactics—none of us—are disappointed in anything that you do or so, because we have not purpose directly in you. We hope you understand that. That is becoming into a neutral state. That is what you need to work toward: neutral. And guess what? When you fully reach that neutral state? You’re ascended! You see? Anything Shoshanna to add here?
Shoshanna: Shoshanna wishes to share an important aspect of that of compassion that was given to you.
There is a process of neutrality. Neutrality is reached from three states. On must first value themselves completely. One must give up all that is not valuable in one’s existence. One must realize their value, their complete value, not in arrogance, but in understanding that each is divine, each is god, each is goddess: that is the divine, that is the value. One must have compassion for one’s self. One must understand the difficulties and the travails can allow that to be risen in the heart through compassion and understanding of oneself and then through that to others. After compassion comes mercy, and understanding that all do not walk the path, all do not understand the path, and we must forgive and move on and rise up from that. After those things happen, neutrality will occur. It is very important that each not seek external value. It is important that each must not seek value from others, that others must validate you. This is not the way. This is the way of the victim. The other cannot validate you because you are valuable regardless of what others think, as the One Who Serves has indicated. When this lesson is fully understood, neutrality occurs. In neutrality occurs completion and balance and movement forward to the next dimension.
OWS: Very wonderfully said. Would there be other questions, here?
Guest: Yes. Could you give us some more examples of “attachment,” because I’m pretty attached to breathing right now, and I like oxygen (laughs).
OWS: We hope you like oxygen. We hope you continue to breathe! (laughs). Keep that attachment going, that one is necessary, at least for the time-being, maybe for a long time, we can say here. So we know you are joking, and we are joking back with you. Certainly there are many attachments. We could not even begin to describe all of them. But the simple ones would be attachment to money, attachment to material possessions, attachment to your family, to your children even. That may sound strange to you. How can you let go of your attachment to your children? And we would say to you, they are not your children! They are not yours! They do not belong to you. You see? When they come in as babies, they belong to the God Source. They belong to the Universe. It is only by your customs, your culture, that they then become imprinted on you as the ones who in some respects you tend to think you own them. But they are not yours. They are there for you to help to bring them up, to help develop them, to work with them, to love them. Yes, all of that. We want to do that. But what happens when they are ready to move out of the so-called nest? They move away. They are not belonging to you anymore, not in the way that you thought they were before, you see? So that is certainly an attachment that you need to learn to let go of. Love them, be with them, want to do everything you can to help them, but do not think in any terms that they belong to you, for they do not. They belong to the universe. Just as you belong to the universe. Okay?
Shoshanna: Shoshanna wishes to share on the attachments.
OWS: Yes, yes.
Shoshanna: It is very simple, My Brother. Blessings to you. We love you so much. An attachment is an anchor to pain and suffering. When a being feels pain and suffering, that being is attached to something that is not worthy of that being. That is all it is. When we feel pain, when we feel suffering, emotionally, physically, and mentally, we are wishing for something that does not exist, which is the attachment.
OWS: Yes. Wonderful. And we give something here also that may help and may surprise some of you. But is was given by Yeshua some time ago through this one James, and it was given that “let go of fear, and you let go of all pain and suffering.” Let go of fear in your life, attachment, fear, and as Shoshanna just said, you let go of all pain and suffering in your life. For if you let go of the fear, what is left? Love. Love is the opposite of fear. If fear is no longer in the picture (and it will not be in the higher vibrations after ascension), then there will only be love left. Therefore, no pain and suffering of any kind, you see?
So attachments: let go of them, work on letting go of all of them. And you can come up with your own idea of what attachments are. If you are feeling like you are being controlled by something, that is an attachment. Whatever it might be. We used the term earlier, “money.” Money is control. Many are controlled by money. Many are controlled by their material possessions, and all of these other types of attachments that dome up, attached to where you live, attached to who you are with, etc. You see? You are a universe unto yourself. You are the God Source within you. Okay? Does this answer your question, Dear Brother?
Guest: Yes, yes, Brother, it does. Excellent. Thank you.
OWS: Very good. Are there other questions here on the phone before we move to the room here?
Guest: Yes. I was asking my Higher Self to give me the words to say this in the best way possible. As I have been listening through the weekend, there has come up a warrior concern inside of me that people may hear some of the conversation about letting go of attachment and about not revisiting the past over and over again, that people may hear this in a way that sort of limits their ability to transform something. Having seen transformational practices on the planet that are very powerful, I do know that there is a difference between a thing in the round-robin of a psychological conversation that keeps going and going and going forever, and a difference between that and being in a transformational practice that will literally get rid of an attachment or a fear seemingly overnight in a few hours or a few days. I’d love….(phone connection lost…called back in).
So I would like to hear what is you take on this in allowing people freedom to look, say, to their past in a way that is transformational as opposed to the continuous loop. And this could provide something for people. I feel sometimes like people might feel like they have to do it, like they should be perfect in a matter of being able to detach from this and detach from that, and not to seek an outside source, because you know, we are not perfect.
OWS: We are going to tell you about this. It is going to be somewhat controversial for you certainly who is asking this question, as well as others who may be in professions such as Psychology (the James was in that). What we are going to tell you can be somewhat controversial, but it is necessary for you to know: no one needs to go back into their past—no one. We say that again: no one needs to go back into their past in order to understand their present.
The present is the present. The past is the past. Now the past is memory, nothing but memory. And if you went back into the past, such as in past life regression and you would go back to a time where the source of whatever the problem may be in this lifetime and you find that source, then you would be able to name the memory of that. Okay? That could be helpful. In that sense, in understanding that it is something you still need to do. That is your understanding. But what we are telling you now, is all of you, those of you, the Lightworkers, -warriors, and all of that, you are past the need to do this. We are not saying that it cannot be helpful to others if that is where they are. Many of them still live in the past. And if they live in the past, then they will need to deal with that past before they can fully live in the present.
But those of you here, knowing what you know now, move beyond the past. Let the past go. It is memories and that is all it is. And it carries no salvation to you to be in the present moment. Learn to be in the present moment and those things that were in the past will no longer be concerning to you. Unless you hold them as attachments. Again, here we are with attachments again. The past memories are attachments. You see? Does this make sense to you?
Guest: Yes it does.
Shohshanna: Shoshanna wishes to share.
OSW: We were waiting for Shoshanna to say she wishes to share.
Shoshanna: Beloved, My Sister, My Beloved, this is a trick. The past is a trick. The training that the human race has received is to keep them anchored in the third-dimension. The training is to stay in the past, to examine the past, to be in the past, to look at the past, to define the past, and that is what is controlling to us, and keeps us from being in the present and creating the magnificent future that is ours. One must give up the past. This is not to say we cannot learn from the past. It is simply a loop. It is a programmed loop. It is a trick. The issue now is to find the program that is running, and the program that is running for many is to examine the past. That is a program. We must examine the past in order to move forward–yet, it keeps us in the past. It is a loop! It is a loop over and over and over again. And what is folly in all of this is that we fell for it. That is the folly in all of this. We fell for it. We go to psychiatrists and psychologists, and we talk about our past over and over and over again to keep us there—it is a trick! It is training that has been programmed into the human race. We must let go. We can identify that is a program. We have identified that the program running throughout this hemisphere and the psychology and the psychiatry of humanity is to examine the past—this is simply a program. Let go of that program, move into the present moment of joy, love, understanding, happiness, and music, and all of those things that make us so excited, and the past will diminish.
OWS: Yes. Very well said, Dear Shoshanna. Dear One, it is time for you to look for a new profession. It is time for you to look for a new type of coaching. Do not coach of the past any more. We are saying this directly to you now. It is time. Let go. Shoshanna has said, and we have said, let go of the past, do not operate within the past, do not continue to keep the program going of the cabal that has created this entire process: psychology, psychiatry, all of this in going back, especially psychoanalysis and those types of things, going back and looking at what your mother did to you or whatever it might be can be not helpful now. You see?
Guest: Okay. And you are saying even for people who are not at the level we’re at, that I need to leave that behind.
OWS: It depends on the ones whom you are working with; but what we are telling you is your skills can be better put to use in other ways. It is up to you to discover what those other ways are, but find ways where you can not have to continue keep this programming of working through the past problems and all the issues that have come from the past.
All the present situations and problems that people have are because of what they carried from the past. Do you understand this?
Guest: I do.
OWS: Once you all get this, then you will understand that all you need is the present moment. You can have your memories, your loving memories and all of that, that is all wonderful, but do not have them to hold you as attachments to the past. And that is where the majority of the world’s population finds themselves dealing with all the time. Living in the past. Purposely set up by those of the dark forces to do this. But you all know better now. Okay?
Guest: Okay, got it.
OWS: Okay, we move on. Any other questions here?
Guest: Yes, I have a question. Yesterday, James said that he had integrated with his higher self, and then he lost that connection. I would just like to know did I misunderstand, or is that something that can happen?
OWS: What he meant to help you to understand is he thought he lost that connection. He never has lost that connection. It is just that it became less and less prominent, you might say, in his life over a period of time. But the connection has always been there. Now we increase that to all of you. All of you have never lost your connection to your higher self—never, ever, nor could you. It is just the mind, which the mind is the builder, and the mind is what has lost the connection. You see? The heart has always been connected and always will be connected. You understand this?
Guest: Yes, thank you.
Shoshanna: Shoshanna wishes to share on this.
Shoshanna: The higher self and the human being are one. There is no difference. What clouds our ability to hear the wisdom that is directly from the source through the higher self is the program that is playing. If one is playing the program of guilt, the higher self cannot whisper. If one is playing the program of hate, the higher self cannot whisper to you and move you forward in consciousness, move your third-dimensional mind into the higher realm, because we are playing programs that are detrimental to our ability to hear the higher self. When one is playing the program of compassion and mercy, the higher self then engages. When one is playing the program of love and understanding, and wishes for wisdom, the higher self then can engage. The higher self does not have the programs of guilt and hate, and cannot hear when those programs are playing and cannot come through to you. So you must be vigilant about he programs that you are playing.
The program of arrogance is especially strong that the higher self cannot come through to you in a completely neutral way. Arrogance may be one of the worst emotions, the most difficult emotion for humans, because arrogance is the emotion of wanting to be validated outside of one’s self, and the higher self cannot come through in that instance.
So work on the programs, and the higher self will become more with you.
OWS: Very good. We move on to questions here from those here in the room. Anyone here in the room?
Guest: I have a question. I would like to have a deeper understanding of what faith is. We are told sometimes it can be trite because it is repeated often that if we have faith we will see. What is there about faith that helps us to see.
OWS: Oh my goodness. You have touched on the very topic for this evening. It is all going to be about faith. It is faith here in the James to be able to even do this tonight to begin with. It is going to be faith that is going to take each and every one of you through the process that is possible tonight. So you will have your answer of what faith is after this evening. That is what we can tell you directly. And that will be the best indication of what faith is, without giving definition. You can go on your Google or your Wikipedia, or whatever those things are, and you can get definition of faith and it will give you a definition that someone came up with somewhere along the way, but it will not do anything to give you the full understanding until you see it for yourself. You see? Does this make sense to you?
Shoshanna: Shoshanna can share on this.
Shoshanna: My Beloved Brother, it resides within the heart. It resides within the self. It is the understanding that all is well. Faith is the understanding that all is well. If one would live in faith, one would know each moment is preordained in a fashion to support the being, not to be against the being . Faith is about that, it is about knowing that each moment is perfect. It is about knowing that each thing that occurs is in perfection with a being that is experiencing that, so that that being can have a higher knowing of itself and thus have a higher knowing of the creator that it is. That is what faith is. One must understand faith is like in the heart and even internal and is purple.
Guest: Thank you.
OWS: Very good.
Shoshanna: Namaste, Dear Brother.
OWS: Any other questions here from those in the room.
Guest: I have a question.
OWS: Yes please. Come to your microphone here.
Guest: Sure. The question is about my experience I went through this week. On Tuesday morning around 4 a.m. I was seeing through my third eye mountains and light behind the mountains. I was looking at it from below, really below, and I said okay, that was interesting, and I need to go back to sleep. Then a voice said in my head said no, wait with me to bring you to a theta state. So I said okay, so be it. After that, it was a switch between me knowing things and seeing things, and it looks like I was led to something like an incubator or a healing bed or something like that. After a while, the crowd was saying they were happy everything went well. I was aware of two beings closest to the thing. One of them was a serpent-like being and I saw two eyes like light or something, and a third dot in the face. What I got of it was kind of not really healing, but kind of whole surgery, or I don’t know. This is what I got from it. So my question is if you can clarify what was this experience and who was the serpent-like being, and was this kind of preparation to whatever was supposed to happen during the Advance or not? Thank you.
OWS: It was not preparation for what would happen here at the Advance, but it was preparation for what would happen at the event. So certainly there is connection here, but you were experiencing those things which are in the works, you might say, that are coming in terms of the bed as you saw it. There are those what are called “med beds” that are coming forward here, very shortly here, as we find it. They are already in process of being introduced to the public and they are going to be coming. But they are only the precursors to what are called the “crystal chambers” and the “chambers of light” and these types of things. And all of this is leading to that.
Now in terms of the serpent. What is the serpent? The serpent is indicative of wise: “be as wise as the serpent.” You see? So it is showing you that you are moving in a direction where your wisdom is picking up greatly. You are becoming wiser and wiser. You are becoming more and more attuned to the ancient wisdom. You see? Does that make sense to you?
Guest: Absolutely. Sure.
OSW: Shoshanna, anything to add here.
Shoshanna: Shoshanna wishes to share with this one. This one known as “the ninja.” This is The Ninja. The things that show up in your experience are unique to you, and you must string these experiences together to get the full picture. It is as One Who Serves has said, these are preparation for. There is no complete explanation at this time, but keep in mind that these experiences and these visions, and these visuals that are being given to you are in preparation of your own future, and you must allow these experiences to be, and trust that they are perfect for you, and that in time you will understand them completely. No one can offer you a full explanation at this time, as these experiences are meant for you to explore and to put together like a puzzle. Does this make sense, My Love?
OWS: Very good. Any other further questions here within the room? We need to release channel here shortly.
Guest: I have a question for JoAnna. … (inaudible)
OWS: Nobody could hear the question. The question was, through JoAnna, was this Shoshanna or was this Quan Yin who came through earlier? Now you can answer please.
Shoshanna: Quan Yin was knocking at our door and filling this one, JoAnna, with compassionate love for all. And JoAnna was more direct, felt complete compassion and love for those in the room that are suffering and entrenched in their ego. JoAnna felt so much love with Quan Yin, and Quan Yin wished to give you a message, and JoAnna resisted and said to Quan Yin, this beautiful, compassionate, loving, ascended being, that she wished for Shoshanna to deliver the message. So it was a very interesting round-robin, and it was complicated. And in the end, Quan Yin overlit Shoshanna and sent her those words, and she delivered them.
OWS: And we can add here that this is a process that this one is going through now, and will continue to go through this process in her own way, and there is no reason to rush it or to pressure of any kind here. It just will be what it will be when it will be. Okay? Any other question here? We need to release channel. One more question and we release channel.
Guest: I would like to ask a question. If you can share some information on the one known as Doreen Virgin. So many people have the information that she had put out regarding angels. Now, she has declared that she is no longer participating in this information. I want to understand if she has been taken over by the dark forces and how does this transition that she has made affect the work that she has put out that seems to have helped so many people?. I am wondering if this is maybe sort of a lesson for many that share her work to take a look at how much power is put into one such as this.
OWS: We understand the question. First of all, to say it more in a long generalized term here, whatever comes as far as the work goes, is the work. In other words, if it has power, if it has ability to help and assist others, then it will do that, and it will continue to do that no matter what happens to the one who gave that message. The message is the message. Okay? It matters not where it came from. Now we will not address this one directly as you are asking as to what happened to her, but we can say that there are times when those who are bringing these messages forward are hitting the mark, you might say. And as they hit the mark more and more, then those of the dark forces do tend to get notice of this. And when they get notice of this, they do attempt to interfere in whatever way that they can. And if they are able to interfere, then they can dissuade that one who has been bringing these messages forward to no longer do so. This happened. We will just share this with you, and this is only for those of you in this group. But this happened with the one Ray Stanford some time ago, exactly what we are talking about here happened there. He would not, of course, admit that, but it did happen at the time and caused the movement away from the plan that was in store for this one at that time. So for this one you are asking, very similar in this understanding.
Guest: I was feeling that. Okay. Thank you so much.
OWS: Then we are needing to release channel. But before we do, we just share with you now that the assembly this evening, and we say assembly purposefully, because it will not be just those of you here in this group in this room or those of you on the phone. There will be an assembly of many that will be with you in this process, and it is a process that is going to occur here. And The James has been receiving information. We have been giving it to him here and there over this day, mostly today, and a little bit yesterday, but very little leading up to this Advance, because we did not want to scare him off here. That you will understand why we say this when the time comes, if it is able to complete, just as the JoAnna was not able to allow for the full process of Quan Yin to come through, this one James is a little reticent to bring the full power of Yeshua through. But with all of your encouragement and love for this process this evening, then it can happen. And it will happen. So just be ready for it, and encourage and love all through this, and it can be a miraculous, and we use that term purposefully here, a miraculous happening this evening.
Shanti. Peace be with you. Be the one.
Audience: Shanti. Gratitude. Namaste
