Being Alive

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin-real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
Alfred d. Souza

One of the paradoxes of life is that we must go within in order to find the way out of ourselves: to find our true selves. Our real self lies beneath the crust of our anger, our fear and our automatic reactions. Once we get in touch with our true Being we become accepting and peaceful (blue). We become more receptive to both the joy and the challenge of life’s more profound dimensions.

Bottle 47

Yellow is the possibility that joy can exist in each moment. There are thirteen bottles in the Aura-Soma range that contain yellow and one that has a lemon yellow fraction (Bottle 47, The Old Soul Bottle, royal blue/ lemon yellow).

Bottle 13

Equilibrium Bottle 13 is clear/green and is called Change in the New Aeon and its message is that we need to become clear about our true feelings so that we may die to who we never were. Knowing our true feelings creates the possibility that we do in every moment what we enjoy: what makes our heart feel light. Feeling our feelings is the most basic form of healing.

Bottle 14

Bottle 14, Wisdom in the New Aeon, clear/gold could help us find the wisdom that lies within so that it may be a source of strength and encouragement in the process of letting go of our old identity. ‘Bottle 14 offers the opportunity to move through self-doubt and address any anxieties, fears, or frustrations.’ Mike Booth with Carol McKnight, The Aura- Soma Sourcebook.

Using any of the bottles with a yellow fraction could support us to access the joy in each moment: to replace momentary wanting with enjoyment as the motivating power behind our actions. Positive change is much more likely to occur if you can enjoy what you are doing already.

Bottle 42

Joy is not something that flows from an activity or a thing, joy flows from deep within us and creates a lightness of being that is ever present. No wonder Bottle 42, yellow/yellow is called The Harvest; the affirmation for this bottle is ‘I have joy in the knowledge that I have been given. I feel a lightness of being.’

The lightness of being brings a conscious relaxation of the knot of contraction in the solar plexus and we are able to respond to being present. ‘As we begin to open up to the energies of communication from above and go beyond self-consciousness to self-awareness, we begin to communicate with that which is above us and to that which is beneath us.’ Mike Booth, Ascended Master’s Booklet

Our awareness creates this two-way communication and we are then able to access the information about why we are here and what our true role is. Whatever that may be our main purpose is to bring the light of consciousness into the world.

The joy of Being is the joy of being conscious.
