HAM: Greetings, children, I am Ham and I welcome your love into my heart and I ask that you welcome my love as well. This evening let us discuss recognizing God’s whispering direction.
Thought Adjusters, Freedom
HAM: Each of you has direct contact with the spirit of God within you. This spirit is constantly speaking to your hearts. His voice is mostly drowned out by the pressing considerations of your lives, the constant effort you are exerting in living and communicating, working and planning. All these things crowd out the Father’s gentle, loving guidance. His tender flow of comfort and praise, reassurance and affirmation is, however, always ready to grow stronger in your mind as you learn to identify and to focus upon it. For all your experience, this is the greatest experience of all. For gradually, as you begin to feel his gentle pressure and you begin to yield to this reassuring touch, you will come to rely upon it more and more as you grow in trust and confidence within.
The Father’s touch is not always words. It is more an adjustment of your thought. Thoughts tend to run along habitual lines and you will begin noticing that as this thought process begins going in a habitual direction, it may be stopped and perhaps not a flash but a moment of pause will occur in your thought process where you realize you have a choice and there is another thought, a higher thought, a slightly different attitude to take. Then, as you begin becoming more sensitive to it, you will find this occurring more and more and you will become ever more comfortable following the less worn path of your thoughts and exploring new doors and looking out new windows of perspective.
The Father’s spirit always offers greater freedom. Sometimes the mind becomes chained to habit and the Father’s spirit comes to liberate the mind, not to insulate it. The Father comes to open up greater possibilities. He comes to give you a choice.
Each of you is growing in the spirit and this growth is creating new possibilities and new ways of thinking about yourselves, the question who am I is continually being answered by your higher spirit. Constantly, he says, “yes you are this, but you are also more” and he opens greater worlds to your minds. The Father does not come into the mind as a dominating controller. He comes into the mind as a liberator. He offers choice in more abundance and in greater areas than you could have imagined.
Be comforted my friends for you have before you infinite possibilities and you are never trapped, you are never limited except through your own designs. The Father desires for each of his children to have the upmost freedom so that all of your potentials can be nurtured properly and given opportunity.
The Master came to a world locked in tradition, locked in a certain human conception of God and man. He came to proclaim freedom to these spiritual captives. He came to reveal the higher law which was imperfectly understood as this lower law, the law of religion.
You now have within you the ability to commune with the Father of the universe. You have within you the Master’s own spirit. You have within you one who can demonstrate the Father’s freedom and help you to comprehend it. The Master taught that the Father never meant for his children to be slaves to an ancient, outworn creed. The Father’s only desire is for his children to reach increasingly toward greater vistas of freedom.
The Father’s freedom comes with greater moral responsibility, greater self-control. For no one is free when one is enslaved to the unruly tongue or uncontrolled physical appetites. Freedom is only found with choice. Each of you must be able to choose, even to choose the path of a thought process. You are not truly free when you are enslaved to negative thinking or unspiritual thoughts such as anger or fear. But as you grow in the spirit, you will leaves these lower levels behind and the freedom of higher thinking will open.
The path of the spirit always requires the letting go of the old and the embracing of the new. Usually, the old must be set down for a while and of course you are free to return to it. But you cannot explore the new levels of spirit while clinging to the old thought patterns. It is frightening to let go of something when it seems to be quite needful, when it seems to be part of your personality, part of who you are.
Sometimes, it is hard to let go of the old ways of seeing yourself and it is very difficult to see yourselves through the Master’s eyes. And yet, this is the freedom that is being offered. You can see yourselves as the Master sees you and you can see your potential as the Master sees it. And, each of you has literally unlimited potential. Do not be afraid of this. Grasp it.
My little children, have patience with yourselves. Have tolerance for all your perceived shortcomings. Stop condemning yourselves. Refrain from judging yourselves. This is self-control. Learn instead to be sensitive to the Father’s quiet and gentle spirit. Be sensitive to that spirit which is leading you toward greater freedom, not less. Learn to think about problems with the Master’s counsel, even trying to imagine his attitude and his help.
Do not worry about the small things of life too much. Rather, embrace the spirit with a whole heart allowing the lessor things to fall as they may and trusting that you will have all that you need in every effort to carry out the Father’s will in your lives.
You who have will be given more. The Father will grant these things for your happiness as well as for his will to be carried forward. The Master said, “the Father makes provision for your happiness as well as your sustenance”. Trust in this, for it is so. Learn to be sensitive to those little breaks in your thoughts, those moments when the Father might be pointing out a way toward greater freedom of thought. Freedom is your birthright, freedom is your destiny. Spiritual freedom is the Father’s gift. Learn, step by step, to accept it.
Learn , step by step, how to free yourself from old patterns of thought for it is within patterns of thought where human beings become enslaved. My friends, you will find your way forward in the spirit and this way will be one of increasing joy and happiness.
My children, you are finding ever increasing levels of freedom and joy. Don’t stop now, but become every more adept at listening, at feeling that opening, that gateway to greater freedom which is constantly being offered. Rejoice. Rejoice that the truth can be known. Rejoice that all the spiritual help you will ever need to carry you to Paradise is with you right now. Rejoice that you are never alone. Rejoice that you belong here in this world. Rejoice and claim your place among the ascending sons of God. Rejoice, that you can love in ever increasing measure and this love cannot be taken from you. No.
Love can never be stolen. Love is your possession for eternity. Rejoice that you have the opportunity to store up wonderful memories of beautiful friendships and that these friendships and these memories will be yours forever. Rejoice my friends. Carry your burden with gladness. Praise the Father’s goodness and partake in his beauty, wonder, and happiness.
Remember, the Master was not a man of sorrow but a man of joy, a happy man, a man ready with a joke, and ready to laugh at your joke, a friend. And so he remains. Let it be clear in your minds that the Master’s friendship is yours, eternally. The Master has come. He has called you his friends as well as his children. Rejoice in this.
You have come through many turbulent patches along the way. So rejoice when the water is as glass, and your little boats are skimming along without resistance. Yes my friends, spiritual freedom, the glad tidings of sonship and daughtership, the feeling of belonging in the world, these are the gifts of the spirit. Rejoice.
HAM: Are there any questions at this time?
Q: Ham, does the adjustment of thought occur in every domain of life including work, relationships, health, and how we relate to the material world and its political, social, and religious institutions? Are there boundaries or is the guidance given everywhere?
HAM: : It is given everywhere.
Stillness, Free will
Q: Do you have any exercises or strategies we could use to become more sensitive or tuned to the guidance?
HAM: : Yes, you have all trained your minds to be more still. You have all understood how to cultivate the stillness and this is a great help. But gradually, you will find that you can open a space for the Father in your mind anytime. You can have a little space between thoughts, a little opening for the Father’s input and become a little less quick to launch into the old, habitual thoughts. Each of you must become accustomed to recognizing that you have much greater latitude of choice that you realize. The Father’s spirit simply opens up the choice. You have a choice between your usual reaction and something else.
You have always a greater realms of choice than you generally acknowledge. The Father’s spirit just nudges and offers. He never insists. And this can happen all the time at all levels. When you are frustrated with something and you are tempted to launch into a mental tirade along the usual lines, hold back for a second and see if a choice doesn’t appear in your mind. It will. Everyone has choices to make all day long. And yet, most of the time you are enslaved to your habits. Just begin to realize that that is what is going on and the choices will open.
Q: Do you have anything for Rebecca?
HAM: : Yes my dear. You are doing very well. Remember that you have also great levels of freedom opening always. Look ahead with optimism and confidence for you will have the opportunity to serve as you desire to serve. Trust that this is so and be at peace.
HAM: : Yes my son. I have the same message for you. In your heart, your greatest desire is to serve. Now you must trust that you will have the opportunity to serve as you desire to serve. Be at peace.
Q: Can I have a message please Ham?
HAM: : Certainly, my son. My son, all things are becoming new. You are learning to accept yourself in ever greater measure and you will continue accepting yourself as you accept the Father’s love into your heart. For his love comes not simply to be past along, his love comes for you as well. His love embraces you. His love upholds you in this world and his love will not let you fall. Trust increasingly in this love. Let this love give you the freedom of loving yourself. For once you are content, once you have accepted the Father’s embrace and you have accepted his mantle about your shoulders, his warmth and his comfort, then you will be given ever increasing opportunities for love and you will recognize, in increasing measure, the love that is surrounding you. Right now, take some resting time. Allow yourself to reorient to this new place. Then, accept the work the Father places in your hands. Don’t worry, you will have all you need.
Q: Do you have anything for me tonight Ham?
HAM: : Of course my dear. You are also beginning to accept a greater view of yourself. You are beginning to see and to accept who you are without reservations and caveats. You are beginning to set your feet on the ground and feel secure in your space. You are beginning to feel that this world is your home and that you have every right to be here, every right to be yourself. Have an abundance of confidence my daughter. You have shown a great willingness to follow the Father’s leading. This will only continue and as your potential actualizes in the world, you will become ever more secure in yourself and at ease with your place in this world. Be at peace my daughter. You are doing very well.
Q: Ham do you have any counsel for me tonight?
HAM: : Of course my son, you are doing very well. Do not be troubled but rather find comfort in the comforter. Recognize and understand that his spirit stands ready to hold you and to comfort you in your times of stress, your times of trial. Know that you can go to him and lay everything before him asking for his help and his help will be forthcoming. Know that the Master’s spirit is reaching into your heart and into your life. Lay down your burden son. Recognize the Father’s gentle voice saying “Come to me. Rest here a while and let us reason together”. Circumstances will change. Human beings will come and go and pass away.
But the Master’s spirit, the Father’s spirit is with you always, from your beginning to your end in Paradise. Take comfort in his love. You will have all that you need and trust that that is so for others as well. Trust yourself son. Your judgement is sound. Be at peace and draw strength from the spirit. Know that whatever the slings and arrows of fortune, your sanctuary remains intact and the Father’s hand will lead you into ever greater levels of being. This is certain, this is true. Take comfort then. Find hope and love in your heart. Forgive yourself, and forgive yourself for all the crimes of immaturity, all the misfortunes of youth. Forgive your parents for giving you faulty notions of God. Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness! Let it be so.
Q: From Marije: Harald has not be doing very well for a few months. He has dizzy and numb feelings and at times he is really exhausted. He describes his situation then as ‘trippy’ or ‘spacey’. We are wondering if this has an physical or a psychological cause. I asked his permission to ask you this question, Ham, because he is not sure of your existence; I am sorry for that. Can you give us some insight please?
HAM: : Fear not my son. The symptoms you describe are probably a combination of factors. Stress can aggravate this condition and create anxiety or just an overactive brain which can make it difficult to sleep and rest properly. This lack of rest can cause all kinds of symptoms and this seems to be what is happening. You are also coming to grips with spiritual realities that you have repressed and pushed aside for long enough. These troubles are also part of your growing spiritual awareness and it is breaking through the conscious walls you have erected. Each person reacts differently to spiritual pressure and you may be having a stormy birth, so to speak for the spirit does not exist only in the levels of the intellect.
But spiritual pressure can cause intellectual disruption and you may for a time feel as though the rug has been pulled out from under you, like everything is uncertain. This may even alternate with feelings of deep certainty over trivial matters. Don’t worry my son. You will come through this and be fine. Try to get a lot of rest and don’t do anything out of the ordinary. Don’t overtax yourself right now emotionally or energy wise. Let Marije help you. Trust her wisdom and be open to her guidance. The whole universe is behind you my son. You will make this adjustment and be fine.
Q: Do you have a personal message for Charlie B?
HAM: : My son, you do well as always. Take heed of this lesson and know that you are always upheld in the spirit. Trust in the Master’s guidance, his friendship and his love. All else is secondary.
Q: Do you have any feedback for me this week?
HAM: : Of course, my son. You are doing very well. It is very good to have these times for renewal and times for falling in love again with your life’s partner. A life of partnership is one that must remain one of continual discovery and continual rediscovery. This blessing is not lost on either one of you. Have peace, my friends, for you are doing well. Love and being loved to the depth of your spirit is what gives meaning and purpose to life. When you have loved to the full extent of your heart’s core, reach further and find that you can love even more. This is the secret of happiness. This is the way of the spirit.
HAM: Are there any further questions at this time? Go in peace then my children. Love each other deeply and completely. Rest in quiet assurance and knowledge of how much you are loved.
