Sharing the essence of who we are

Dear Ones,

In this US Thanksgiving/Thanksreceiving week, the post I read this morning made me reflect on how we affect others—positively, that is.

Energy, and therefore gratitude, goes both ways, doesn’t it?

We want a giver and we need a receiver!

The interconnectivity between all of us has increased; or perhaps it is that we are noticing it more easily as the old world falls through the cracks and barriers dissolve.

How do we influence people around us, even without words?

So that they start looking within and questioning, not only the world around them, but also their conditioning.

There ought to be a way, a path that is walkable, that is practical.

This excerpt provides some answers; and yet there may be others.

In fact, there are a myriad of ways to shine our light and sow our love. In the deepest recesses of anyone’s mind.

“We are connected to each other and to the earth and stars by a web of energy. This web is real and so what affects one will, in turn, affect all around you. As you raise up your light, you begin to radiate like a tiny sun, as a Christed one who radiates light into your environment, affecting friends and enemies alike. Those who are more sensitive will be the first to notice the difference in how you carry yourself, how you react to events around you, how you manage to find beauty and delight in all things. They will be attracted to the light, even though they might not understand it yet on a conscious level. And by allowing themselves to be attracted, they will commence on the first step toward their own enlightenment.”

Another bubble follow-up

Dear Ones,

As one might expect, once we start moving the mud, particles come up in the water. Which makes it easier to see and dissolve them.

This means that another initiation bubble came up this morning.

The Swiss precision still there. Which means totally inevitable.

Could I foresee the consequences of what I did in my normal way of living?

Most certainly.

Did it make any difference?

Of course, it didn’t and the scenario played along my journey. That’s the way the path is laid, and this is what I call for.

Did the bubble burst?

I can’t even tell.

Which means, the scenario aside, different bubbles may have different effects.

For one thing, it didn’t create any irritation within. The risk, well-delineated, was more for rampant guilt, which wouldn’t make things any better for anyone. Providing that I would be sending guilt energy into the Universe.

And the antidote, well-cherished, is the mantra I shared yesterday.

“I give thanks for everything and I have no complaints whatsoever.”

I give thanks especially because it opened up a new door in me; one that I had not foreseen.

The desire to send healing Light to extinguish people’s anguish. Anguish of any kind, including the one I am familiar with.

Was this desire hidden behind a mental barrier?

One that suddenly broke down, because of the determination I made to “fully surrender to the Divine.”

It is the thought that has penetrated my awareness.

A bubble follow-up

Dear ones,

I wrote on Saturday about those lovely initiation bubbles coming into my life. They have been part of my environment for a long, long time. The one that flew at me that day burst and it taught me quite a bit. Knowing these bubbles come at me all the time, in various shapes, colors and sizes.

Another one flew at me this morning; a massive one in some respect with an issue that usually irritates me to the core.

And, believe it or not, this morning’s initiation bubble didn’t burst. It didn’t affect me as it usually does. And I was able to let it go fairly easily, leaving the final decision in the hands of the ‘decision-maker.’

With all my experience with these flying bubbles, I can tell hundreds of them could have been avoided, only if….

Only if I knew that this would happen because of what I did. Nothing out of this world; just mundane living leading to the firing of a bubble.

What entered my mind fairly quickly this morning is that this November 12th bubble would have never existed, had I not asked our son not to watch TV before breakfast. He would have not returned to his room, the birth location of the bubble; because of what happened there a few minutes later.

Again, day to day occurrences—nothing big, assuredly—and their ‘small consequences’ in the chain of life and learning.

During all these years when these ‘occurrences took place,’ I truly believed that the Divine had something to do with them. Knowing it was so beautifully orchestrated and, at the same time, so easily avoidable if …. The scenario repeats itself with what I would call ‘Swiss precision,’ despite the varying circumstances.

Yet, what dawned on me a couple hours later in my yoga class is that it is not the Divine (a Divine ‘out there’) at work, but Gilles Asselin’s Divine; or my Higher Self, or my I AM self, if you will.

My Higher Self knows exactly what I need and knows best how to nurture and shower me. Yet, if I continuously respond the same way, it will continue to offer situations where bubbles will be fired, one after another.

That became crystal clear.

I made the determination this past Sunday to “fully surrender to the Divine,” in my daily living environment, my very own crucible. It is time, isn’t it, after this myriad of bubbles?

I didn’t know where it would take me and boy, the road can be arduous—yesterday felt like a day full of setbacks—and the ‘attachment to attachments’ is a pattern which is hard to break.

The attachment to attachments I am talking about is a mental pattern(s) we have engineered—perhaps a very long time ago, often unconsciously—to take care of the bubble once it has burst; or in case it bursts. Especially when the bursting of the bubble is painful. It is usually a mental pattern that we project in the future and that creates damages. It is not a healthy pattern.

But, as we understand, despite the arduousness of the path, it is the direction we are moving toward that matters; it matters certainly more than where we are now, even in the middle of an ocean of bubbles!

The little initiations of everyday life

Dear Ones,

I am sure you know what I am talking about here when I mention the word ‘little initiation.’ Those little moments when life graces us with a challenge, a fear, or another emotion—often prompted by an external event or a person.

On my personal path, it seems I can encapsulate these moments into something tangible; they pop, they fire their energy and they move on. The pattern is fairly consistent and it seems there is nothing I can do to prevent them from happening. There is an element of surprise, of unknowingness which is both divine and spiritual.

When reflecting on those moments this morning, the image that came is that of soap bubbles—bubbles that are flying at us in all their innocence and purity.

That is, until they burst. And in order to burst, they need to be touched, or pierced; or perhaps they simply need to land.

The questions that came then are,

How we can go through these initiation bubbles unaffected?

Or is it a better strategy to blow them and let them go their own way?

I believe it depends on the kind of bubbles we are talking about. Some of them may be inevitable, as resilient stones laid on our spiritual path; others may only want our best growth and inner attunement, despite the appearance, the color or the size.

I am writing this, not pretending that I know how to handle or gently push those bubbles aside. As I came home this morning, after my yoga class, an initiation bubble came flying toward me, fueled by unknown and unseen circumstances and, guess what?

It burst.

So why not rejoice at the sight of these ‘inevitable’ bubbles and consider life for what it is? A beautiful initiatory ground.

In the spirit of the practice of Thanksgiving—in North America, that is—I

would like to share a mantra that came back to me yesterday. I knew where to find it, tucked that it was in a Djwhal Kuhl teaching of November 2011.

“Today I give thanks for everything and I have no complaints whatsoever.”

Shall we, dear Ones, include our initiation bubbles in this ‘everything’?

Choosing what we feel – and think!

Choosing what we feel, or the ‘adventure’ of this first week of November, is not about denying or masquerading our emotions.

It is neither about feeling good or adequate. Knowing that life is “what it is” and that it usually throws a lot at us, in just about every shapes, tones and colors.

It is about realizing that, in every moment, we have a choice. The choice to follow our ego and feel victimized, or abused, or deceived, or the choice to let go and give our soul the rein.

Naturally, there are situations and contexts where we are truly victimized, abused or deceived—and that is the moment when we need to speak up and defend ourselves.

What I am referring to is clearly illustrated by this beautiful passage from the Arcturian Council, dated Saturday, November 2nd.

“People often wonder if they are truly awakened because they still have their challenges, their issues, their moments that could be described as very egoic. And we want you to know that once you are awake, your journey has really just begun because now you are conscious, now you are aware that you have a choice. You can choose to know your Divinity or to feel very small and insignificant. You can choose to feel empowered or to feel like a victim. We want to help elevate you out of victimhood status so that you can know yourselves as creator beings. We want you to know that you are in the driver’s seat now, in your lives and in the shift in consciousness.”

And thus being awake often means being aware that we have a choice, again; a choice in terms of how we look at ourselves and how we conceive of ourselves—the victim, the receiver, or the ‘conspirator of good’, the giver of positive energy.

That choice was offered to me a few moments ago. I could have felt insulted by what happened around me, because of something I did casually. Yet, as soon as I realized that choice possibility, I let go of the lower route and chose the ‘conspirator of good’ seat.

It is an easy choice once we are ‘sufficiently’ aware, I believe. Although, as we all know, awakening is not a question of “quantity.” Often times, a challenging situation will present itself and our ego will jump at the opportunity to make us feel bad, or feel victimized.

This choice awareness requires discernment as well as spiritual vigilance, knowing our ego is always happy and willing to set “tricks and tests” along our spiritual path.

May our journey of “growth and discernment” be a magnificent one, dear Ones!

Transmuting the energies of separation

How—or rather, why—dear Ones, do we separate ourselves from our divinity, and each of us from Oneness?

How do we create the mental/psychological rift that allows us to judge another, regardless of his / her situation and level of evolution?

These questions, as well as some others pertaining to how we build community, have been on my mind lately as I witnessed ‘separation in action’ in our environment.

Community, which may well be the opposite of separation, starts with getting to know one another, beyond the superficial platitudes of everyday living.

This is how the rift disappears, so to speak, as we discover how human the person is, how ‘just-like-us’ he or she breathes, moves and struggles in the world.

The excerpt from this week’s Arcturian Group message offers some examples of separation; yet these ‘separation traps’ abound in the world and it is up to us to exercise self-reflection, wisdom, and possibly compassion, when we encounter them.

That being said, how do we offer compassion to a system which indeed creates separation?

I am talking about a ‘big machine’ system here, one of those we would consider obsolete by tomorrow’s standards because it doesn’t put humanity at its center; serving, at times, the interests of special stakeholders; at other times, existing for the sake of efficiency.

What do you think, dear Ones?

And how do we transmute these energies of an old age, personally and collectively?


The three-dimensional belief system based in duality and separation has created gods, saints, and royalty.  It has taught for eons and still teaches that some individuals, as well as a nebulous male god in the sky, are better than you and must be looked up to and even worshipped. In reality, these designations simply represent facets of separation, the belief that those who have attained some “man ordained” qualification, either by birth or experience, are more valuable, wise, loveable and “holy” than everyone else.

A “saint” is nothing more than a person who has fulfilled certain three-dimensional concepts of spirituality.  Many of those declared saints were not awake to real spiritual truth.  Because you are creators, a person who spends 24/7 thinking about and concentrating on the stigmata, or some concept of a God experience, will easily create it for themselves.

This is why it is important to let go of all concepts regarding what spirituality must look like in order to be authentic. Allow your personal evolutionary process to unfold, trusting that your Higher Self knows what is right for you and when, which may be totally different than someone else’s experience.

Three dimensional titles mean nothing in the larger scheme of things because even though there is individuality, all life is in and of the ONE and only life. This does not mean that you cannot give honor and respect where it is deserved, but to worship and seek to emulate some saint, famous person, or three-dimensional concept of God at the expense of one’s own divine nature is idolatry.

Most souls do not incarnate for the purpose of becoming famous or to attain that which will make them valuable, loveable, or important to others according to three dimensional standards. However, most incarnating souls forget and lose sight of their purpose when entering into the denser energies of earth.

Where are we going?

This is a question, dear Ones, and this is not a question.

We are going anyway.

The “where” is not the primordial part of the question.

It feels more like the ‘energy of the week,’ if you will.




And for me, the energy has been manifesting as ‘restlessness.’

Not restlessness in the form of impatience, but rather in the sense of not having a taste for much, and yet being able to function just fine.

This is a surface feeling that certainly denotes much—and yes, much in terms of where we are heading.

Perhaps a birth is forthcoming and a cork will soon pop up.

Who knows?

And who knows where we will be as a collective by this Thursday, 10-10-19?

Knowing the Zoom link address for this week is: 10 – 700 – 01 – 700
