"Master Creators in the Making"

A Saint-Germain and Kuthumi Channel: "Master Creators in the Making"

Dear Friends,

When you dare to blend with your Soul in this lifetime, you express
the Truth About You. You acknowledge that You Are God, also, and that
you are willing to live your life that way. Neither a statement of
false pride, nor spiritual superiority - it is the simple, earnest
recognition that you are the Source and author of your own life.

It is a declaration of your mastery, and a marvelous leap forward in
your awareness.

When you take this step, you recognize that you are an individualized
focus of Self consciousness within the greater life of the God Source
- uniquely you, but God, also.

Resolving this paradox in your mind is a sign of mastery. You now
understand that all of God's power is vested within you. And because
of this, you know that you can create realities, love them, and
experience them fully - just as God does.

This IS mastery.

Acknowledging Your Mastery

But what happens when you recognize your mastery for the first time -
when you finally see that everything you've ever experienced is your
own creation? The joys and sorrows are yours alone. The highs and
lows, you have brought upon yourself. No one else can be blamed.

Do you hurriedly rush to make things better? Do you retrace every line
you've ever penciled or change every brushstroke you've ever laid down
on the canvas of your life?

No. You don't. These works are finished.

As a master, you accept them for what they are - expressions of the
knowledge and expertise you had at the time they were created. You
love them, and you move on.

You take up a fresh canvas, and you draw or paint again, but this time
with a newfound awareness of the creator that you are.

Conscious Creation

For many people, accepting themselves as a master creator is unsettling.

After all, it is one thing to create unconsciously - generating one
portrait of yourself after another without acknowledging that you are
the artist. This way, it is easy to pretend that the flaws you see in
these images are the result of someone else's handiwork, and then
blame them for it. But this is delusional thinking.

It is quite another thing to create consciously.

When you are a conscious creator, you know that you are the artist.
You know that you pick the medium and choose the tools for expressing
your Self. And you are aware that you alone determine whether your
creations, and your creating, will inspire you or not.

Yes. Accepting that you are the master creator of your own reality can
be quite unsettling, even when you willingly step into this awareness
on your own.

Fear of Creating

Ironically, when you first step into awareness of your mastery, you
are often afraid to create again.

The responsibility just seems too much to handle. You may still
remember what it was like to create unconsciously, and to not have
enjoyed what you created. This is what is inhibiting you now.

If you are an artist, you might begin to feel uncomfortable with your
tools. Your brushes might seem less familiar, and the colors you used
in the past might be distasteful to you now. The empty canvas, rather
than inviting your expression, turns you away. It is blank and void -
a place where nothing can be known and nothing discovered. And the
more you dwell upon your dilemma, the more blocked you feel.

Does this sound familiar? Do you know this feeling?

What will you do? Perhaps you are not the master you imagined yourself
to be.

If you continue down this path, then before you know it, you will
convince yourself that you are unable to create.

"I've neither the tools, the medium, nor the talent for the task. So
why bother? Perhaps the right thing to do is walk away. No one will
notice, anyway."

And so, you do.

This type of resignation is sad, and wholly unnecessary.

There is another way. And we are going to tell you the story of
someone who found it.


You may be familiar with Michelangelo. He was well known in his time,
and even more so now, for his exquisite sculpting of the human figure
in marble. He was a master of his art and craft at a very early age,
and he knew it.

In the early 1500s, Michelangelo was asked by the Pope to paint the
ceiling of the Sistine chapel in Rome, a project that took him four
years to complete. Not much older than 30 years, he was worried and
apprehensive. He told the Pope from the beginning that he would prefer
not to accept the commission.

Michelangelo knew he was a master sculptor, but he did not really
consider himself a painter. Of course, he had trained as a painter in
his youth, and still sketched almost daily, but his confidence with
brush and pigment was not the same as it was with hammer and chisel.

Michelangelo was also concerned about the motives behind the request.
He suspected that his rivals had encouraged the Pope's invitation in
order to see him fail. After all, the scale of the task was tremendous
- and it was to be carried out using tools and a medium (color upon
wet plaster) that were not his favorites.

Despite his misgivings and self doubt, Michelangelo accepted the
commission. What resulted is one of the finest works in the history of
Western art.

Of course, there were many obstacles to overcome along the way:
Designing a scaffold from which to stand while painting high above the
floor; developing a plaster that resists molds and fungus;
establishing a color scheme that can be seen far below the ceiling;
and most importantly, creating brushes and brushstrokes that convey
the drama and pageantry of his Biblical themes.

This he did with consummate mastery.

You Are a Master of Self Awareness

Like Michelangelo, you have attained a high level of mastery. You are
a master of Self awareness. Self awareness is knowing that You Are
God, also. Self mastery means that you live your life that way.

Self mastery also means that you understand the nature of creation and
recognize your partnership with God in this. You know that creations
arise from the beliefs you hold in your conscious (or unconscious)
mind; and that the God Source, the Greater You, re-assembles Itself
around those desires to bring you what you have asked to experience.

You are free to experience the reality of your creations in any way
you choose. But when you have mastered Self awareness, the thoughts in
your mind are guided by the Love in your heart, so that you have a
consistent experience of Divinity in all that you create.

The Master Before the Canvas

Like Michelangelo, there are times when you may feel challenged by the
creative potential you possess - by the scope and magnitude of what
you are capable as a conscious creator. Perhaps now, with your
newfound awareness of mastery, you feel thrust into unfamiliar
territory. Into realms of unknown or untried potential.

You find yourself standing before something vaster and grander than
you have encountered before. But this is a natural occurrence. Major
advances in awareness are often accompanied by new and unusual
opportunities, so don't be afraid.

Yes, you may feel like an artist without his or her familiar tools.
But know that you have the possibility to create something completely
different now - something that combines your knowledge, skills, and
mastery in a new medium of creation.

What confuses you is the feeling of something unusual.

Until now, you have created your life with familiar tools - with
recurring thought patterns and habits of misidentification. Your
efforts have generated masterful results. Perhaps not ones you are
happy with now, but masterful ones, nonetheless.

But all this is changing. Now that you remember Who You Really Are,
please don't be so hard on yourself. Allow yourself time to readjust
to this shift in your awareness, until you can find a place from which
to create again with confidence.

Being Still, Going Within

So, what do you do with this opportunity to create again in an
entirely new way?

Ask yourselves, what did Michelangelo do when he was handed a brush,
instead of a chisel, and told to paint instead of fashion in stone?

Was he desperate? Did he panic?

Did he think, "Nothing is familiar, so there is nothing I can do. I
must no longer be a master."

Of course not.

Instead, he took inventory of his mastery. He realized that his
ability resided in his knowledge, not in his tools, and that his
creativity could be expressed in many ways - using multiple skills,
not just one.

His mastery did not disappear with the absence of the marble he loved
to carve. He could still envision form and symmetry as before. His
grasp of perspective had not changed. And his appreciation of color
and shading was intact. Nothing had changed.

He was a master creator.

He was able to adapt his knowledge to the change in his circumstances,
embrace the more expansive medium that was offered him, and create
again with renewed inspiration.

He was a master creator. And so are you.

Inspiration in the New World

When you have accepted your mastery, and realize that your creative
ability transcends anything you may have experienced before, then you
will no longer fear creating again.

Instead, you will hold a vision of your Divinity and make it your own,
breathing deeply into it and calling it to life. You will fill your
brush with color, trace a line, and begin a course a movement across
the canvas that is uniquely yours.

You will stop comparing yourself with anything you have been before,
or once desired to be. You will cross the threshold of Inner Knowing
and observe that you are giving birth to new expressions of Who You
Really Are.

You will feel relieved at the mental level because you know that you
are guided by your intuition, and not your expectations. And you will
feel relieved at the emotional level because you are free of
self-judgment and criticism.

You will realize that you have entered a New World - a world of flow
and ease, where freedom of expression is yours by birthright.

And when your creation stands before you, whole and complete, you will
marvel at what you have done. You will look at the New You with the
eyes of innocence - with the eyes of Love - almost not recognizing
that it was you who gave it life and inspiration.

You may even ask, "Was it me who created this wonder?"

And the answer you will give yourself is, "Yes."

For indeed, you are a master creator.

I am Saint-Germain. And I thank Kuthumi for his presence this day.
