In the Hands of Your Master Consciousness
by Rebecca Skeele
It is said that while sculpting David, Michelangelo chipped away
everything that 'wasn't David.' Something in the slab of marble
that was to become David illuminated a form so vividly that with
each chisel stroke, the master sculptor was able to bring it into
In collaborating closely with your divine nature you, like David,
become gently molded and fashioned into who you really are.
Some people undergoing this sculpting process feel as if unseen
hands are lovingly peeling away defenses that no longer serve
them. Others remark that they are no longer preoccupied with the
struggle of their soul to extricate itself from beneath a heavy
boulder. A fisherman once told me that when he started following
the calls of his heart, 'barnacles' affixed to him decades before
began falling away.
Cooperating with this process causes you to light up, lighten up,
and begin to see yourself, and in time others, as your are seen -
perfect, complete and good. You can feel this happening each time
you choose to expand rather than contract, to love rather than
fear, and to forgive rather than condemn. All the while, your
master consciousness is hard at work, and with every wedge of
conditioning it chips away, you come to see this master sculptor
as yourself - the spark of the divine within.
Ways to participate fully in the process:
Have a conversation with your divinity wherever you feel at
ease speaking intimately: outdoors in nature, over a canvas or
set of paints, in the bath, by a roaring fire, journaling, in
prayer, meditation or contemplation.
Let this indwelling source of wisdom know you'd like its help
in seeing more clearly and in using your energy more impeccably.
Listen closely for guidance, trusting that it may not come
immediately. Be open to the unexpected messenger.
Give your master consciousness free reign over an aspect of
your life, letting go of your urge to control.
Check in often - perhaps once a day, for renewal and refocusing
your attention and intention.
Be prepare for paradoxes. In seeing more you will know less.
Statements of certainty will give way to uncertainty. The more
you admit you DON'T know the more that will be revealed.
Ultimately, a high state of cooperation with your divnity
requires you to be in the mystery. It's not necessary to know
what will happen before you leap, or where the bend in the road
leads; you'll find these things out soon enough. Just remain,
collaborative, loving, respons-able, and brimming with childlike
wonder - for then you will be and see anew from one moment to the
