Who are we?

QUESTION: Masters can you tell us about being aware of who we really are, right now on Earth as humans? And also give us tips on how to connect with You and our Presence of I AM? Thank you from my heart! ~Erica, Brazil

ANSWER: Being aware of who you are is the process of bringing your spiritual essence, your “I AM Presence” as you have called it, into your total consciousness. Often this is called the process of enlightenment. It begins by accepting the human life you are involved in and loving the fact that you chose to partake in learning through negativity.

Let’s back up a bit and determine word meanings, since your language is seldom specific in its implications. Souls originated by being separated or broken off from Source energy, which was the only existence in the universe until it decided to divide. Religions have referred to this as the I AM Presence or Supreme Beingness.

Since each soul’s essence is of Source, it has all the same characteristics and abilities as Source. Recognizing that you have these abilities and learning to use them while on Earth in a physical body is connecting to your I AMness. We are but a part of the whole, just as you.

Earth is the only place that exists as a duality of negative and positive. When Source created individual souls, it did so to find out what it was not. It was already aware of its perfection, which included being all-knowing, all-powerful, all-creative, and all-magnificent. Source existed in an all-positive, unconditionally loving environment with no negativity and no judgment. It wished to know what the opposite of itself was like, which could only be achieved in negativity. Earth would become its antithesis, where each soul would have total freedom of choice to learn through experiencing.

Work toward removing all egoic judgment from your life. Replace all negative energy and experiences with positive, loving ones. You will then be in your oneness and connected in a knowing way to all that is, including us.
