It’s my birthday month and I’m always sharing information about birthdays, how important they are, and how to maximize them– when I hear you have one coming. This year, I’m sharing it with all my followers on MY birthday month. This blog post is dedicated to Larry – my first Webmaster, First Treasures, having been with me for almost 15 years! He’s mostly retired now, but we do get his expertise for little projects here and there… Happy Birthday Larry, you are the best.
Next I want to wish a most blessed birthday – to my dear friend and former Office manager for two years, Kim. What an angel she is to everyone around her!
Why am I sharing this? Almost 40 years ago I was taught by one of my spiritual teachers, that your birthday is a most sacred day. This is because it is the anniversary of your soul moving into physical form. The most important message about this is that all of the ascended masters, your angels and guides celebrate your birthday with you. They have gifts for you, that you must claim. Like the winning lottery ticket, if you don’t claim it you can’t collect.
As I advanced in my spiritual work, using this tool on my birthday year after year after year until I hit upon an idea. I noticed, that I would begin to mention my birthday, beginning about six weeks before my birthday and concluding about six weeks after my birthday. This means that I could be talking about my birthday for a total of two months.
Magical idea to amp it up!
I decided that if I had such a great imagination, that I could imagine so many presents coming to me on my birthday, why couldn’t I imagine that I had more presents that could possibly open coming from my unseen helpers? It was at this point that I decided I would start asking for my gifts, every single time my birthday came up in conversation. This meant I was talking about my birthday (and then using it as a mental cue, to ask my Angels, and Ascended Master Guides for some of my presents.) This led to some very interesting results.
I’ve been doing this for over 20 years. You can too!
Crossing over and back
One year, at a large gathering, with a group of teachers who met each year, we were sharing stories of our experiences teaching. I asked two women named Angelique and Christiana to tell me how they came to work together. Christiana I was about 10 years younger than Angelique. Christiana was getting a massage from Angelique when Christiana passed away. Yes, she died on the table! Angelique was pretty shocked and checked in with her guidance to find out what she should do. Her Guides reassured her, and told her to just sit there, which she did.
Meanwhile, Christiana was experiencing some very intense deaths. First she was being hung, then drawn and quartered, shot, and finally burned at the stake. At this point Angelique can smell smoke! She got up from her post, ran through her house wondering what was on fire! She came back, checked in again, and realized that it was an out-of-body experience of Christina’s.
While Christina is still “out” her guide appears to her, and she has a conversation with him. He tells her, “Your life as you know it has ended. We have been reviewing some of the more difficult past lives, to clean up your discordant energy. By showing them to you – you’ve resolved the outstanding energy.” She said, “I figured that.” He went on, “We would like you to go back and work with Angelique. She has important work to do and needs a partner, and you are a perfect fit.” Angelique wasn’t excited about that idea at all and began to balk. “Well I don’t know,…, I’m overweight, I’ve got back problems I’ve got kidney problems….” and he interrupted her. “Well we can put you into someone else’s body – but there are integration issues, or we can fix what’s wrong and make it right and the weight will come over the next 10 years.” “Well I’m still not sure.”
Listening with avid attention, I’m thinking, “She’s dead, and she’s negotiating? I want to learn how to do that.” I thought once your dead you’d be told what’s next, not negotiate! (Remember this was 20 years ago.)
She continued, “Well, one of the things I didn’t like about being a body, was that I never knew for sure what I’m supposed to do next.” Instantly, he announced, “Done!”
I laughed to myself, and remembered my pattern for birthdays and thought to myself, my birthday is next week, “I want what she got.” Every time I asked my Higher Self about it, over the following year, the answer would always come flooding in some times before I could even complete a full question in my thoughts.
The following year this group met again. At this gathering with the same people, we were talking again about her experiences teaching and sharing how we were getting advanced information. One person stated that she was getting information about six weeks in advance. Without skipping a beat, both Christiana and I announced, in unison “Oh, I get my information on a need to know basis.” I burst out laughing! The only way we would’ve answered in an identical fashion if indeed I have been given that same gift, the gift of knowing in advance what I was to do next.
How can you use this?
So even though I tell you to ask for your gifts for your birthday in multiples., and even though I encourage you to ask for what your Angels and Ascended Masters think you need, it’s okay to make a special request, and watch the magic.
When I start asking each year, I now I also ask for the operating manual of any new gifts that I get so that I instantly know and understand how to use tools the gifts along with the grace that is bestowed upon me for my birthday. You my friends, are one of them. I’m so grateful for you. And remember to share this blog your family and friends whenever they have a birthday.
Here’s my edited version. Original by Kuthumi, through Elizabeth Claire Prophet
Your Birthday is an auspicious day because it is the anniversary of the embodiment of your lifestream on the planet earth. Each year, as this anniversary of your soul unfolds, your energy withdraws, like a tide going out as you release the patterns, designs and desires of the previous cycle and make room for the incoming flow of the coming year. This is why the individual may feel the lessening of energy and purpose as their birthday approaches.
Those of you who have enlisted the aid and assistance of the Ascended Masters, Angels and Guides will receive gifts from spirit. These gifts are beyond the scope of human gifts, so much so, that you will find that the expression of giving gifts here on earth is but a faint reflection of the practice of all of Heaven who are ready and willing to assist you with providing for the full expansion, exploration and expression of you for the coming year.
Avail yourself of this knowledge and marvelous gift by taking the time to ask for and claim your gifts for the coming year. As you approach this day, know that this is such a time of honor, gifts and thanksgiving to make it the holiest day of the year.
