For much of my life I felt I had to shoulder, on my own, all the ups and downs that life presented to me. I thought the way to do this was to toughen up, to become strong and independent and to accept that this is how life was meant to be.
When my life was flowing I did not allow myself to enjoy this either, as I would be on high alert for the next challenging situation, which would require me to brace myself to get through it.
When I was very young I remember being told that we all have a guardian angel to take care and watch over us, and I know for a while I felt this supportive presence in my life. But somehow, somewhere with the passage of time I lost, or felt I had lost, this connection and therefore it was again a case of paddling my own canoe.
It wasn’t until I came across the work of Alice A. Bailey that I became aware of the term ‘hierarchy’ in the context of us being impulsed or impressed from a source of universal wisdom! It did not make much sense to me at the time and it wasn’t until I read some of the books by a modern-day philosopher, Serge Benhayon, that I understood this, as he explained in some detail how his writings were impresses from The Hierarchy. He also shared that this didn’t occur because of the fact that he had been chosen or was gifted in some way. In fact, it was something that we could all do if we took the time and care to prepare ourselves to allow for this to happen.
Hearing this got me wondering if I would be able to do this. I wasn’t sure how to go about it though, and it wasn’t until I decided to commit to my expression that I realised that here was a golden opportunity to try out what Serge Benhayon had shared about The Hierarchy.
I feel it is important to share that I have always avoided expressing, particularly in the written form: I disliked writing in any way shape or form, and when I was at school, I would enlist the support of one of my brothers with my essay writing. When I first started writing again, I found it very difficult to put into words what I was feeling, but slowly over time I started to relax and would connect with my inner-heart and as this connection deepened, I gradually started to feel that I too could connect with a mind that had much greater wisdom than mine. Nowadays I love to write and really value the deepening relationship I am building with my expression and The Hierarchy.
I now realise that The Hierarchy, or the Ascended Masters as they are also known, consists of those who are a little way ahead of me in their evolution, and who would have walked the earth and experienced and mastered the challenges which mankind faces on a daily basis. Through their love for us they assist us along our path of evolution; we just need to be open to and allow their support, their love and what they are sharing with us to come through unhindered. I have learned through my connection with them that what I receive is not just for me, but for me to pass on and share with others. In other words, it is for humanity.
For me now, I know The Hierarchy are my pals in Heaven and I value deeply their loving support as they walk with me, and I with them, along the path of life. This is a far cry from how I lived previously, where I existed in a constant state of tension and anxiety, which ended up taking its toll on my health and wellbeing. I now realise that thinking I had to go it alone, a belief I held for a very long time, kept me isolated in my own little bubble. This was the end result of being too proud to ask for support. Through my connection with The Hierarchy I have come to understand the beauty and joy in teamwork and what being in a true and harmonious relationship with others involves and feels like.
