Question: I have known a healer who helped me a lot and she healed my trauma and memory. I think she has achieved Christ consciousness, but I see she has been despised even by families and friends. She is suffering from poverty and deficiency in her life. While she is trying her best to save those around her, I wonder why she can’t have economic abundance, is it because she actually didn’t achieve the Christ consciousness?
Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea in 2016.
My beloved, I did not have financial abundance in my last embodiment. This is not to say that you cannot have this if you achieve the Christ consciousness. But what I want you to realize is that achieving the Christ consciousness will not automatically manifest material abundance.
There has, for a very long time, been a tradition that people who devoted themselves to the spiritual path deliberately avoided having material abundance. Now, for many people this can be wise because it helps them stay focused on the spiritual path without being pulled into the challenges that are faced by doing what you have to do to gain material abundance in a world that is so affected by the fallen beings and their manipulation of the economy. But I do not want to in any way say that you cannot have a person with Christ consciousness who has material abundance. What I do want you to be aware of is that for many people, as they attain the Christ consciousness, material abundance fades away and becomes unimportant for them.
However, there are, of course, cases also where people have a certain gift, such as healing, without necessarily having a high degree of Christ consciousness. You see, my beloved, it is important that you do not confuse any unusual gift with the Christ consciousness. Being able to heal people does not necessarily mean that you have the Christ consciousness or at least not a high degree of Christ consciousness. There are many spiritual students, who look at people who are, for example, clairvoyant and think that they must have a highly developed state of consciousness. But it is quite possible to have a certain gift that you have developed in a past lifetime, but in this lifetime you do not have the overall awareness that is the characteristic of the Christ consciousness.
Now, of course, there are different ways to describe the Christ consciousness and it is too big of a topic to really go into depth here. But you need to recognize that an essential ingredient of the Christ consciousness is that you become aware of the All, you become aware of the whole. You are no longer so focused on yourself and your own situation.
This means many subtle things, but it means that you have an overall awareness that allows you to not become focused too much on specific situations. For example, there are healers who are able to heal others and you see this often in certain Christian churches who have a tradition for healing. But these people have not attained the Christ consciousness, for they do not have this overall awareness of the growth of all life. Therefore, they may look at a specific situation or a specific person that needs healing and they have learned how they can bring about this healing, but they are not bringing it about through the Christ consciousness. They are bringing it about because they have a human ambition of proving that their church and their path works by performing these seeming miracles.
What I am saying here is that you cannot look at all people who have these unusual abilities or gifts and reason that they must have the Christ consciousness, because there is a certain percentage of them that do not have that overall awareness. If you are a healer with a certain level of Christ consciousness, there will be certain people that will come to you and you will not heal them. You will sense that it is not right for you to take away their symptoms when they are not willing to change their consciousness.
Likewise, there can be people who are very aware of not abusing their gift and not using it with a human intention. That is why there are many people who are not willing to take payment for the use of their gifts because they feel they cannot keep the neutral state of mind that is actually the foundation for true healing that comes from the ascended realm streaming through the healer.
There are those who have learned to produce these miracles by taking energy from the four levels of the material realm. But this is not what I call true healing because true healing is when you are the open door for energy from the ascended realm that brings about the healing. This energy, of course, will not be released by us if the person is not willing to shift his or her consciousness.
