Feeling of being behind

Question:  At times I have a feeling which others may experience. It is the feeling of being behind. From a practical perspective, what frame of mind or attention can assist in breaking this state of consciousness, or state of mind?

Answer from Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar- Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, in the early days after he discovered the spiritual path, this messenger often had that feeling of being behind. It was partly caused by the fact that he grew up in an anti-spiritual society, where there was nothing that stimulated his spiritual growth. It was not until he was 18 years old that he realized there was a spiritual path, and it was not until several years later that he discovered the ascended master teachings, and so in the beginning, he felt that he was behind where he could have been if he had had a spiritual teaching earlier. And this is the case for many of you.

You have a certain divine plan, there is a certain timetable built into that divine plan, and you can often have an intuitive sense that you are behind that ideal timetable. It is not really a matter of making that feeling go away. It is a matter of recognizing that you have this feeling, and then asking for inner direction and contemplating this. How are you behind? What is it that you can do to get back to the timetable you defined in your divine plan? Then you can open yourself up to receiving these intuitive insights from the Christ mind. And you can, of course, give various novenas and exercises and invocations to facilitate this. Then you may well receive these insights, if you are open and neutrally asking, what you can do to catch up to where you yourself wanted to be at this time.
