The May 2022 Prophetic & Apostolic Monthly Insight Chronicle of Christ Consciousness and Spiritual Alchemy

Welcome to the beloved month of May!
What does the month of May bring besides warmer temperatures, Mother’s Day, blooming flowers, and the fresh beginnings of summer, according to the Prophets? May is a special month for all spiritual beings, but especially for Pisces, Taurus, and Aries.
§ A major physical transformation of someone very close to you.
§ A major employment shift and a major change financially.
§ A pivotal movement in your emotions.
§ Your creative juices (thoughts, words, emotions, imagination, decisions, and actions) will usher into your life a major harvest you’ve been expecting for a very long time.
Life is a very special gift. But we are sometimes so unaware of it that we never actually thank Existence or God or Life for this unique gift, and we don’t really feel any gratitude or thanksgiving for this extraordinary opportunity. So, we complain, criticize, compete, condemn, and compromise. Let’s begin TODAY to express gratitude for everything and for everyone we’re presently complaining about! The power of gratitude CHANGES EVERYTHING!
Be thankful and watch Life give us more to be thankful for!
In our daily Spiritual Alchemy Classes, we have been dealing intensively with the subject of physical death and prosperity on all 7 levels.
These two spiritual discussions (death & finances) are extremely vital in making your transition from religion to Christ Consciousness!
What about death and finances?
Rumi said this about physical death….” I died as mineral and became a plant, I died as plant and rose to animal, I died as animal and I was human, Why should I fear? When was I less by dying? Yet once more I shall die human, To soar with angels blessed above. And when I sacrifice my angel soul
, I shall become what no mind ever conceived. As a human, I will die once more, Reborn, I will with the angel’s soar. And when I let my angel body go, I shall be more than mortal mind can ever know.”
Rumi saw physical death through the perspective of reincarnation. We should too. This is Christ Consciousness. Job asked the important question…. If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change (reincarnation) come. Job too, saw physical death through the eyes of reincarnation. Why? Because Job was a Christ Conscious Entity!
What about financial prosperity? Wallace D. Wattles said….” If you really want to help the poor, demonstrate to them that they can become rich; prove it….by getting rich yourself. Get rich by the creative method and not by the competitive one. How? There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe. A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought. Man can form things in his thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance can cause the thing he thinks about to be created. In order to do this, man must pass from the competitive to the creative mind; otherwise, he cannot be in harmony with the Formless Intelligence, which is always creative and never competitive in spirit.”
This is the energetic divine essence of prosperity. So please pay attention to your DAILY Spiritual Alchemy Classes. These classes will definitely keep you grounded in this Truth; and remember, only knowing or experiencing the Truth creates FREEDOM from the undesirable reality!
Thanks to you……. We are globally building a Church Without Walls! What exactly Is a Church? Is it a physical building located in a specific geographical location? No. A Church is actually a psychological container for the individual and collective eternal spirit that resides In every single person! The spiritual ancients saw a Church from this psychological perspective and not necessarily from the perspective that the Church was somehow limited to a physical building! This Is exactly why Acts 7:38 says that God was IN the Church that was in the wilderness! When the Israelites were in the wilderness they functioned collectively as a psychological Church without a physical building! Neither The Tabernacle nor The Temple was a BUILDING designed for the people to worship in! The Temple was designed for sacrificing animals for atonement. And the tabernacle belonged strictly to Yahweh! It was a uniquely designed TENT constructed for the purpose of conversing with Moses and housing and protecting the major alien ancient technologies that Yahweh gave to Moses:
· The ark of the Covenant - A mobile weapon and an inter-dimensional communication device.
· The Tablets of the Covenant - A device that contained the finger of God!
· A golden bowl that could produce manna.
· Aaron’s Rod - A multidimensional weapon of unimaginable power.
The Israelites saw THEMSELVES as the biological containers of the presence of God! This is exactly what Jesus was alluding to in Mt.16:18 when he said, Upon this rock I will build MY CHURCH! Jesus built a Church without Walls that the gates of Hell couldn’t prevail against! Remember…. His initial disciples saw THEMSELVES as Christed; not Christian! They knew Christ was IN THEM, not in the buildings! They themselves were The Church; not a building used for religious gathering, but a living breathing god, individually and collectively, capable of the very same miracles Jesus himself performed; and even greater.
Remember beloved…. You were created to create; not to be Christian, not to complain, not to compare, not to condemn, not to criticize, not to compromise, and definitely not to compete.
Jesus said, Ye are gods!
In my personal opinion…. The number one egotistical obstacle to divine prosperity is our usage of The Victim Card!
It’s everyone’s fault, but mine!
This is what I know is the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth, so help me God…. Once a person truly accepts their infinite divinity hiding in their finite humanity, they will immediately cease to ever play the victim card again! (Read THAT again)
Many people are taught from birth that life happens to them rather than through them and that they themselves have absolutely no control over the events of their life. They are taught to react instead of responding.
This kind of thinking always creates a victim mentality.
I would venture to say that it is definitely not a very comfortable state to live in…. but it takes a lot of discomfort to ever discover it and then own it…. before we can take the way of escape. The victim-hood state is actually coming from our own inner fundamental thinking. Once it Is finally discovered you must work hard to claim your change because it will mean going against a core belief which probably Is still prevalent in your immediate family. Another unfortunate product of victim thinking is that while you may think it is a good thing (albeit perhaps only subconsciously) that you get to pass off your responsibility for anything bad that happens, you may also find it very hard to truly connect to the good things you do accomplish. Why? Victims can never actually embrace their own progress because they’re too busy blaming others for their problems!
Listen carefully…. This Is a truth I’ve stated before, but It Is a truth that bears repeating. In Phil.3:1 Paul quickly reminds us about the safety of spiritual repetition, he says, to write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe. There is great spiritual safety in hearing a spiritual truth repeatedly! Isaiah said, Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Only them that are weaned from the milk and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little! I repeat myself often because I clearly understand that spiritual safety is the only principle that guarantees spiritual results.
Repetition is not failure; it’s safety! Ask the waves, ask the leaves, ask the wind. There is no expected pace for inner spiritual learning. What we need to learn always comes when we need to learn it, no matter how old or young, no matter how many times we have to start over, no matter how many times we have to learn the same lesson. This is actually the essence of reincarnation. We fall down as many times as we need to, simply to learn how to fall and how to get up! King Solomon reminds us in the Proverbs, For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again! We fall in love as many times as we need to, to learn how to hold and how to be held!
We misunderstand the many voices of truth as many times as we need to, in order to truly hear the choir of diversity that surrounds us. We suffer pain as often as is necessary for us to learn how to break and how to heal. No one really likes this, of course, but we deal with our dislikes in the same way, again and again, until we learn what we need to know about the humility of acceptance. Scripture says, Jesus learned obedience by the things he suffered.
When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or simply accept it. All else is madness.” — Eckhart Tolle
How do I actually recognize a Victim?
1. They Don’t Take Responsibility for their actions or decisions. When playing the victim, a person will refuse to take responsibility for the circumstance that they are in. Instead, they point the finger to make others feel guilty, or simply ignore their role in perpetuating the problem. What’s the remedy here? Every circumstance, situation, and event in their life offers the victim an opportunity for spiritual growth. They may not be completely responsible for what has occurred, but they can always ask if they contributed somehow. Asking this question invites a person to be responsible, mature, and cooperative. Plus, it will help them avoid similar situations in the future.
2. They Are Frozen in Their Life. Victims believe that they are at the mercy of everyone and everything around them. Usually, a victim will not make progress or advance in their life because they perceive that they are powerless. As a result, their life is stagnant. If you were to ask them why, they would respond by giving you a laundry list of reasons why they are stuck. The real sticking point here is that the victim will not usually tell you what they plan to do about their lack of progress in life. In order to fix this, the so-called victim needs to see that small behaviors or changes in their attitude can reap big rewards. Try to help them make a list of small, achievable steps they can take towards a goal in their life. Hold them accountable and ask them to hold themselves accountable, too, in order to get them out of the role of victim.
3. They Hold Grudges. The victim likes to hang onto old grievances and make other people feel bad about their actions. They carry these around like weapons, just in case anyone ever tries to hold them accountable for something. A victim will bring up old memories and events in which they were probably legitimately hurt, but they use them as reasons why they can’t make changes to their attitude, their life, or their circumstances in the present. To move forward and stop playing the victim, people engaging in this behavior need to see that keeping grudges is only holding them down. The victim needs to recognize that freeing others of blame is actually returning all power and self-control back to the victim.
4. They Have Trouble Being Assertive. The victim does not truly believe they can control their life, so they struggle to state what they need, desire, or deserve. The victim’s life will usually involve repeating patterns of submissiveness and passivity. This pattern is detrimental to self-esteem and personal development. The victim generally fails to break this pattern and suffers from potential anxiety or depressive disorders. What’s the remedy here? A first recommendation is to seek help from a professional psychologist, counselor, or a spiritual life coach. This is a chance for the victim to turn the direction of their life around. Ultimately, learning to be assertive is not a quick fix…It will take time, practice, learning, failing, and trying over and over. In the end, however, he/she will no longer feel that gnawing sense of powerlessness and self-pity that has kept them down for so long.
5. They Feel Powerless. This could be a shadow behavior, meaning that the victim does not outwardly show that they feel powerless. Instead, the victim will try to be manipulative, coercive, and underhanded in getting what they need. You may have dealt with someone experiencing this kind of powerlessness. Usually, the victim is someone that is suspicious of others, feels insecure, and is constantly needing to know the latest gossip while playing the victim. As an outsider, do not play the game with them. Stay away from the game of sharing gossip, listening to their stories of manipulation, or engaging with their stories of insecurity. Let them know you’re there to support them and to listen to them, but not to contribute to their feeling of powerlessness.
6. They Don’t Trust Others. This issue is not only a problem of not trusting others. This is a problem of the victim not believing they are trustworthy themselves. The victim makes the assumption that other people are exactly like them: untrustworthy. To help this issue, the victim must examine the evidence. There are trustworthy people in the world and people that want the best for you. It is the job of the victim to begin revising their old assumptions about people instead of always playing the victim.
7. They Don’t Know When Enough Is Enough. In relationships, victims have no sense of limits. They don’t know when to say enough is enough. They have a hard time creating boundaries, both for themselves and others. To begin fixing this, boundaries are crucial. What is the maximum they are willing to take in a relationship, or in any given situation? It is the responsibility of the victim to decide these boundaries for themselves. If you are a friend or loved one, you should also set boundaries with the “victim.” Decide how much of their victim behavior you’re willing to put up with before you bow out.
8. They Argue a Lot. The victim has trouble choosing their battles. To them, every battle is a war. They feel that they are under attack all the time and have a hard time realizing that not everything is about them. What’s the remedy here? The victim needs to realize that a difference of opinion or a piece of criticism is not necessarily about them. It could very well be about the other person. The victim must recognize they have a choice over whether they allow themselves to enter into petty arguments and decide what it’s worth to them.
9. They Feel Self-Pity. Victims have a habit of pitying themselves. Their mirror reflects a defenseless child that cannot fend for itself. Since other people do not usually show them sympathy or empathy, they try to give it to themselves, only to potentially appear immature to others. This further trap them and keeps them playing the victim. The victim needs to recognize that all people have tough days and experience bad events. Even the luckiest people experienced unfortunate events. He or she must learn to avoid thinking that they are the only person in the world that has experience sad, difficult, or unfair circumstances.
10. They Constantly Compare Themselves to Others. The victim usually struggles with the habit of comparing themselves to others negatively. The truth is that we are all lacking in some respect compared to others, so it will always be easy to engage in this behavior or train of thought. In order to improve this, the victim needs to change their view. They must recognize that they have good qualities and likely have experienced privileges, too. This will also help their mental health overall.
11. They See Life as Always Lacking. Even when something good happens, the victim will seek out what’s lacking or what’s missing. The victim will complain about complaining, and then complain that they can’t stop complaining. Instead, they should count their blessings, The victim needs to treasure each good thing in their life and develop a new habit of being positive and optimistic through gratitude. They should aim to be the most thankful and hopeful person they can be.
12. They Are Always Critical. The victim has a need to put others down and find fault in people in order to feel good about themselves. By doing these things, they get a fleeting sense of superiority by playing the victim. What’s the remedy here? The victim should take all their energy and use it to build others up. This will reflect back on them in a positive way, too.
13. They Think They Are Perfect. Ironically, when there is a chance that a victim could be caught in an error, they suddenly become perfect. This arrogance and narcissism close the victim off from having truly trustworthy and cooperative relationships. Instead of thinking this way, they need to remove the word “perfect” from their vocabulary and accept that they are human and naturally imperfect. In fact, the victim needs to realize that the more they own their mistakes and failings, the more others will gravitate towards them.
14. They Quickly Cut People out of Their Life. If a victim faces a difficult or challenging moment with someone in their life, they’re likely to respond by cutting someone out of their life. This highly emotional behavior creates chaotic relationships. The victim needs to recognize their pattern of cutting people off, as this usually doesn’t lead to the resolution of problems and conflict. They could always take a different, more positive approach, such as letting people know their feelings instead.
Remember…. In the end, playing the victim doesn’t ever get you anywhere in life. The victim will always end up facing painful consequences in their life and relationships if they do not change their behavior by taking constructive criticism and turning it into positive action.
Where does this type of mentality come from? Very few — if any — people adopt a victim mentality just because they can. It’s often rooted in things like:
§ Past trauma. To an outsider, someone with a victim mentality might seem overly dramatic. But this mindset often develops in response to true victimization. It can emerge as a method of coping with abuse or trauma. Facing one negative circumstance after another can make this outcome more likely. Not everyone who experiences traumatic situations goes on to develop a victim mentality, but people react to adversity in different ways. Emotional pain can disrupt a person’s sense of control, contributing to feelings of helplessness until they feel trapped and give up.
§ Betrayal. Betrayal of trust, especially repeated betrayals, can also make people feel like victims and make it hard for them to trust anyone. If your primary caregiver, for example, rarely followed through on commitment to you as a child, you may have a hard time trusting others down the line.
§ Codependency. This mindset can also develop alongside codependency. A codependent person may sacrifice their goals to support their partner. As a result, they may feel frustrated and resentful about never getting what they need, without acknowledging their own role in the situation.
§ Manipulation. Some people who take on the role of victim might seem to enjoy blaming others for problems they cause, lashing out and making others feel guilty, or manipulating others for sympathy and attention.
Make a quality decision today to never again play the victim card! Remember……You are not a victim; but you are a designated victor! Scripture says, Your inner spirit always causes you to triumph when you are operating in Christ!
Yours In Christ,
