Third Channeling Intensive, Session 10 on Sunday, October 9, 2022

In this final session from the Other Selves Working Group’s third channeling intensive, those of Q’uo discuss the diverse circumstances in which an entity can suffer from feeling overwhelmed or flooded. Organizing these instances by their temporal orientation, Q’uo catalogs several energetic, catalytic, and emotional components that come into various levles of play in each type of overwhelm. Q’uo offers some general tips on balancing these feelings and relating to the pain and fear they can instigate, closing with a general message of encouragement for the instruments.

Q’uo on Love Healing Disappointment and Resentment
Third Channeling Intensive, Session 5 on Friday, October 7, 2022

In this session, Q’uo addresses the problem of the stubborn persistence of certain wounded affects, in this case, those of disappointment and resentment. An attempt is made to uncover the structure of the psyche such that these issues could pose such a great difficulty for those who seek to heal and to become whole. While those of Q’uo do not feel it possible to give a complete answer in the form of a formula for overcoming these wounds, a  few gentle suggestions about how one might address the condition are offered.

Q’uo on Feeling Lost
Third Channeling Intensive, Session 3 on Friday, October 7, 2022

In this session Q’uo addresses the despair and confusion that longtime seekers often encounter on their path. Pursuing a polarity does not mitigate against these feelings as catalysis and transformation work upon us. Q’uo encourages us to develop a relationship with pain that does not deny its sting while also learning how to ask for the help and faith to endure. As always, seeking a larger perspective in the present moment is a great aid in our desire to serve others and build our spiritual strength upon this love.

Hatonn on Change and Turmoil
Evening Group Meditation, Session 3 on Wednesday, July 13, 2022

In this session those of Hatonn attempt to speak to the discomfort and heartache inherent in the constant change of our lives. This change and the emotional wake it leaves is part of our lessons, and it is our limited third density perspective that prevents us from seeing it as a smooth and coherent curriculum leading to realizations which we are destined to achieve. In fact, the more we can feel into our emotions deeply, no matter how positive or negative they may seem, the better use we can make of the catalyst. We might fear that feeling negative emotions could prompt us to act in rash or destructive manners, but those of Hatonn assure us that we are more likely to act in ways we might regret in the attempt to escape the emotion, not in simply feeling its truth.

Q’uo on Anxiety
Second Channeling Intensive, Session 8 on Thursday, May 19, 2022

Among the biases and gifts we bring with us from second density to third is the bodily state of alertness and angst that we understand as anxiety. While it served us well in second density consciousness, our ability to engage in abstract thought in the social complex, combined with our deep longing to return to the Creator, often magnifies justifiable anxiety into patterns of negative thought that impede our progress towards love and the realizations of spirit. When used in a disciplined manner, however, it can help us prepare for the emotional toll of eventualities and give us lessons in acceptance. As we grow into social memory, we learn to balance anxiety not just within but with others’ help.

Q’uo on Disciplining the Emotions into Love
Second Channeling Intensive, Session 2 on Monday, May 16, 2022

In this session Q’uo speaks to the process and the tribulations involved in the task that increasingly becomes central to the aspiring adept: the work of disciplining the emotions. Stress is laid upon the need to integrate work in the daily life with that work which is done in meditation. Q’uo develops in some detail the exigencies of daily work, showing how this fits in with our interactions with other selves. And the point is made that these interactions will not always be sweet and harmonious, even when there is a prevailing intent to make them so. Finally, attention is given to how the harvest of the work done in daily life can be brought into the more focused workings of the meditative situation.

Q’uo on Acceptance and Overcoming
Evening Group Meditation, Session 2 on Wednesday, May 4, 2022

In this session from the Richmond Meditation Circle, Q’uo addresses issues arising from acceptance of struggles in life. We learn most from our attempts to overcome and oppose obstacles, because this effort exposes clues about our deeper identities. The fruition of our incarnational work lies in the patient, gradual acceptance of that which we once sought to overcome, building the faith in us necessary to approach fourth density. Preparing ourselves for service through meditation, we learn to abide in this process, comforting and nurturing ourselves and other selves along the way.

Q’uo on Empathy
First Channeling Intensive, Session 10 on Sunday, August 1, 2021

In this session from the Other Selves Working Group’s first channeling intensive, those of Q’uo explore the conditions of sorrow that so frequently transform the natural empathy we feel towards our other selves into a self-protective aversion. The work of accepting and balancing heartache felt by another lies in our willingness to feel those emotions along with them, alleviating the loneliness of sorrow in the other and obtaining on both parties’ behalf a new perspective on this experience that teaches the Creator so much. We may convey our balance to those suffering just as their imbalance is felt by us, transmuting the experience so that no part of the Creator is left behind.
