Question: We use the tools given by the ascended masters to heal the birth trauma and to transcend the primal self. At the moment, I see in myself about a dozen separate selves that actively impact on my consciousness. A couple of them may well claim the title of the primal self. Are there any criteria by which I can precisely specify my primal self at my current level of consciousness? Can the ascended masters recommend something for more intensive work with the birth trauma and the primal self?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Ukraine in 2019.
You need to recognize here that when we give a teaching, you have to be careful not to take it too literally, with a linear analytical mind. It isn’t so important to classify a self, to name the self. The important thing is to get rid of it, to let it die. So, once you can identify that there is a separate self that causes you to react a certain way, then you need to work on seeing it, seeing the illusion behind it, seeing the problem that it wants you to solve, seeing that it is an impossible problem, deciding that you do not want to solve it, and letting the self die.
There will be times or there will be people who will take the teaching given, they will start working on this, they will come to identify a certain self. And they will think that this is the primal self. But it is a self that was created later. And therefore, they need to work on perhaps several selves before they can come to see the primal self. And so it is possible you can have the impression you have worked on the primal self and dissolved it, but it wasn’t actually what we have called the primal self. But again, it isn’t important to label it, it isn’t important to categorize it and put it in this hierarchy of selves you might call it. The important thing is to take one self at a time, come to see it, and let it go. And then work on the next self.
There is of course also the possibility that you can have selves that were created before the primal self because you brought them with you when you came to the planet. Or if you are one of the original inhabitants of the earth, you had created selves before you encountered the fallen beings.
So what we are really saying is that the primal self is the first time you encountered the fallen beings, and they attempted to destroy you psychologically and spiritually. But you could have selves that were created before then. But again, you just keep working on it. And you will be working on selves as long as you are in physical embodiment. The tools we can recommend: well of course, we have the book “My Lives”, “Healing Your Spiritual Traumas” and the other three books that follow them.
That is what we offer. But you can of course also use various tools, books, teachings, techniques developed in the field of psychology. Some of you have benefited from using the teachings about the inner child that have been available for many years and are available in many languages. But there are other psychological tools that you can use, and if you ask for inner direction, use your intuition, then you will be led to them.
And you should feel free, of course, to use any tool that has some appeal to you intuitively, to dissolve some self or some aspect of a self. We are not claiming that you should confine yourself to the teachings we are giving. Whatever you feel prompted to use, whatever can help you, you should use it. Therapy can also be helpful for many of you, especially if you have never done therapy, various kinds of therapy that we have recommended before.
