Ascended Master Serapis Bey and Clear Calcite: “Karmic Grace”
“We bring you the blessing of Karmic Grace. There are many ways to learn and grow, some ways are joyful and some more challenging. Sometimes a challenge can best be resolved through profound struggle that forces you to transform in such a way that you can never go back to what has been. The struggle might have been deeply painful for the mind, body and emotions; and yet what is gained from that experience is a multiplicity of blessings – personal power, freedom, insight, self-respect and wisdom. These qualities then help you live a better life where that past pain need not be repeated. Blessings can at other times be gained through joyful experience. Sometimes the struggle is what will bring you the greatest joyful experience. Sometimes the struggle is what will bring you the greatest spiritual progress; sometimes a more joyful path will be how you grow best. The Universe loves you with such passion that you shall never be denied what you most need and what shall help you fulfill your divine destiny.”
The struggles we encounter in life can be challenging enough without adding unnecessary guilt, shame or judgment into the mix. There are times when the path of life becomes easier, more flowing, effortless and shining with radiant grace – and in those moments we feel as though we are doing something ‘right’ and the Universe is affirming and validating us. Everything just falls into place and we feel blessed.
What can be more difficult to accept is that there is grace in the struggle too. The Divine, in its infinite love for you, will empower you to fulfill your innate potential. For some, that may be a gentler journey of progress less challenging to body, mind and soul. It may be entirely appropriate for a particular soul to be in a lifetime focused on tranquility and feeling supported, rather than being thrown crown chakra first into the upheaval that typically accompanies intense spiritual transformation! There may be times in your life, even if you are one of the souls here to experience growth, where your path is gentler, brighter, more effortless. When this happens, it is what will serve you best. Even the most intense paths that include experiences of trauma or abuse – perhaps especially those paths – will need times of lightness and joy.
Your life path will unfold in whatever way will most benefit your soul growth. What you need to remember is not to judge yourself, or think that you are doing something wrong when life gets difficult. It is actually a sign that you are going through an accelerated phase of spiritual growth, and the blessings that come from it will be what you need and want the most. There is a temptation to judge oneself in the struggles of life, to wonder: Why am I not getting this? Why am I in pain? What am I doing wrong? This must be karma! And then guilt, shame and judgment make the situation even more difficult. Don’t do this to yourself, or to others.
When there is struggle, there is opportunity for breakthrough to be grasped by the soul. This opportunity can come to you through this method of growth. You’ll have other times that are more joyful too, so there is no need to worry. Some souls choose to have lifetimes where much struggle characterizes the earlier the earlier phase of their life, preparing them for great work – and a much lighter and more joyful experience – in the second half of their life.
If you have been puzzled by an experience in your life – a difficulty, or perhaps even effortlessness – and you are trying to make sense of it, relax. Accept that karmic grace bestows upon you the best way to grow and manifest your divinity in every moment. You don’t have to understand it, but to accept and trust it, you need to believe you are truly loved by the Universe.”
Healing Process: “To integrate this guidance, you may like to say this invocation now:
‘I call upon the Ascended Master Serapis Bey and the Crystal Angel of Clear Calcite who love me unconditionally. Thank you for the divine healing blessing of karmic grace. I surrender with relief and loving trust into my life experiences now. The struggles and the easier times serve me perfectly. I do not resist. I use my free will to move through every experience offered, even when it doesn’t make sense to me at the time. I accept the gift of karmic grace. May that grace bless the lives of all living beings. Through unconditional love and my own free will, so be it.'”*

We must release the idea that we are constantly being “punished” or “rewarded” by the Universe for certain behaviours. We also must release the superstitious beliefs we have that we can “jinx” things so that they will not turn out as planned. Instead, we must take responsibility for our behaviors, and see the lessons that we are being offered in different situations. If we are repeating patterns, we are not learning lessons that our Soul had contracted to learn during this incarnation. If we feel that we are being punished, maybe we should look at where our hand in the situation lies, and whether we attracted this particular challenge to us through our guilt, shame, regret, anger or fear towards the person or situation we are dealing with. Or maybe that is where we constantly focus our attention, and since we have not been able to move past it and start fresh, we keep drawing in the same type of scenario over and over again. But again, it would be for the lesson we are refusing to see or learn.
Then there are the curve balls of the Universe. The natural disasters, the acts of terrorism, the illnesses and accidents that no one saw coming. Those happen in spite of everything and not because of it. There is a bigger picture here, whether we can see it or not. That is when the importance of Faith comes into play. What do you believe in? How much do you trust? How can we come together in these times, lean on each other, heal each other, hold each other tight? Love is huge here, the only way to soothe the devastated heart.
Here we are being offered a gift, the gift of Karmic Grace. We are being offered a “get out of jail free” ticket and we should take it and run! Life can be tough, it can be challenging, it can drain our inner resources. This is a chance to offer up the challenges for Higher healing. For transmutation; alchemy.
Let Serapis Bey lead you out of the darkness; it is time to step into the Light. Offer up your lead for gold. Let go of the struggle. Embrace the new.
