“The 13 Key Disciplines –
The Templates of Life”
By Karen Curry Parker
We are standing on the brink of a very important time on this planet. We are on the threshold of heralding the start of a new era, a New Earth. Prophets from many different cultures and times have spoken of this place metaphorically and literally for thousands of years.
The details of what is to come have been spoken about with words that are vague, scary sounding and often ominous. But the words of the prophets also offer hope and speak to visions of lasting peace on earth, a time of returning to the garden, Heaven on Earth.
We have a choice to accept a time of suffering and destruction or to take the reins of creation into our hands and become the stewards of a new era for humanity. Either way, we play a powerful role in co-creating with God the world we participate in. The real question is which destiny will we choose?
Quantum physics has shown us that Light, that which we are all made of, travels in pulses and waves and that, for brief periods of time, two particles of Light can occupy the same space at the same time before diverging onto different paths, creating different destinies.
These points of contact are Points of Evolution, a brief moment when choices and vibrations determine destinies. These Points of Evolution are initiated by chaos, periods of reorganization filled with all kinds of experiences for us to gain clarity from.
These seemingly chaotic points of pulsing energy, much like the pulses of a womb contracting to birth new life, are actually change points, energized places of choice. Chaos is perceived because in those moments there are an infinite number of paths converging simultaneously.
For realities to change, to get off one path and onto a different one, there will be points where the two roads meet. We are at such a crucial junction at this time. The greater the perceived chaos, the bigger the jump between the two roads and the greater capacity there is for growth.
The true purpose of God and the nature of God is growth. God is always seeking, through us, to expand and grow.
We are, right now, being called forth to make a Big Jump. We all intended to be here on Earth at this time to be midwives to this process. We are here to grow.
This is the most exciting time to be here on this planet. We have been preparing for this time forever!
But for us to make the jump in a direction that is joyful and rooted in our consciousness of God, it’s going to take a lot of practice and discipline. We are being called upon to release the last threads of belief systems that have kept us separate from our Divinity for lifetimes.
These belief systems are so deep and strong that they are rooted into our bodies before we are even born. The science of epigenetics shows us that most of our belief systems are patterned within our nervous systems in our bodies by the time we are six years old.
The acts of discipline required of us to reprogram our neurobiology have been outlined for us for thousands of centuries. Ancient ones called this discipline Alchemy.
Alchemy is not about turning lead to gold literally. This conversion is simply a metaphor about an intentional participation on a journey to creating Heaven on Earth, taking the dark, unformed blackness of lead and turning it into beautiful, deliberately sculpted pieces of art.
You are the artist of your life.
The most powerful teachers in any religion have been Master Alchemists. They have manifested water where there was none, fed multitudes with just a handful of fish and a few loaves of bread and won battles with musical instruments, doing the seemingly impossible with their knowledge and faith. These powerful teachers understood that contained within us is the Divine code for creation.
It is time to listen to our teachers and practice the lessons of Alchemy. We are creating the templates for our future right now.
If you are reading this, then your Soul is vibrating with an inner longing to make this world a better place. You desire to feel empowered to make a change in your own life and in the lives of others. My intention is to give you some simple insights to help you master the science of Alchemy.
Creation is a logical process. The Universe and God act in an ordered way. Science continues to deepen our understanding of the mechanics of our creative capacities. Our thoughts trigger the manifestation of specific neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters create an emotional response. Our emotions influence a powerful electro-magnetic field in our heart which in turn draws into our lives experiences that match the frequencies of our heart.
Once you learn to harness this process consciously, it becomes a predictable formula that you can follow again and again and again.
This is a simple process, but not always easy. The rewards for your determination and perseverance will have a lasting effect for you and leave a legacy for your Earth Brothers and Sisters. We can manifest a delightful New Earth where all souls remember the infinite power of creation that we carry within us.
In order to stay aligned with your innate creative power, there are 13 Key Disciplines that you must attend to with great consciousness and deliberation. These disciplines take practice, focus and intention.
You will have days when it feels harder than other days. There will be times when you question yourself. This is part of the process and as you go through the lessons, you will learn how to navigate your way through the daily fluctuations of energy.
You are always doing it right. You are always growing and changing, and it is truly all good.
The 13 Key Disciplines
1. Release That Which No Longer Serves You
When your hands are full, you can’t open them up to receive something more unless you let something go. We are conditioned to make do with “less than” and to compromise.
Everything you see, hear, smell, touch and taste in your outer world is simply a metaphorical representation of where you are at with your Alchemy and consciousness. Your outer world is always talking to you.
If we consciously settle for “less than,” then “less than” will show up everywhere in our lives including our bank accounts, our businesses and our relationships.
Now is the time to let go of old habits, patterns, thoughts, actions, relationships, jobs and situations that are no longer in alignment with what you intend to create.
2. Let Go Of Your Past
The past is over. If you allow the stories and excuses from your past to keep you from courageously creating what you want, you are no different than an elephant that is conditioned by the feeling of having a chain around his leg but is actually free to roam.
Do not define yourself by what you have survived. Surviving is less than thriving. Intend to thrive regardless of what has come before. Where you put your focus right now is the template for what is to come.
You have an important role to play in the evolution of this planet. Each and every one of you has a special job here. In this incarnation, you chose a specific energetic blueprint, your Human Design to help you fulfill your life’s mission and purpose.
It is crucial that you understand yourself and who you are so that you can continue to create in alignment with the magnificence of who you intended yourself to be.
3. Stay Out Of Doubt
Evolution is happening whether we believe it or not. Think about this. What would people have said in the year 1900 about what is taking place on the planet right now? We are using crystalline and satellite technology to speak to each other all over the world instantly.
I can sit on the beach in California and my daughter can send me a photo of herself brushing her teeth and I can reply with a photo of the ocean and me feeding seagulls. I can check emails instantly from a tiny, hand-held computer that fits in my pocket.
If everything we see, hear, smell, touch and taste is simply a metaphorical representation of our alignment with our consciousness, then our technological advances are simply telling us that we are advancing.
Change is happening. More and more people are waking up and remembering their Divine Magnificence and the power of Alchemy.
You can doubt change and evolution. The truth is that it’s going to happen with or without your consciousness. It is Law. We create by thinking and feeling. Do you choose to be a conscious part of the process or do you choose to create by default?
4. Use Fear as Leverage
It’s easy to get caught in the sticky web of fear. Fear can create paralysis and feelings of being “stuck”. Physiologically we see that the experience of fear can shut down thinking and create a survival reaction.
We mistakenly believe that we are experiencing fear in response to change and respond with conditioned paralysis. But most of us are not really experiencing fear. We are instead experiencing resistance. Real fear protects us. Real fear is your intuition telling you not to do something because it might be life threatening.
For example, your fear might tell you to not go into a dark alley at night. This is intuitive and reasonable.
When you are choosing to not make a change because you are “afraid,” you are not really experiencing fear. You are experiencing resistance or a split in your energy. This kind of “fear” is simply your inner, directional compass letting you know that something in the application of your alchemical process is out of alignment.
If you are feeling resistance, it is crucial that you ask yourself these two very important questions:
Am I really intending what I truly want? Or am I intending what I think I should want, what others want me to want or what I think is possible for me?
Do I have beliefs that are keeping me from allowing myself to know that I can have exactly what I intend? For example, do I believe that I have to work hard to make money or that for me to get what I want, I might hurt the people I love?
When you courageously go for what you want…with total honesty and authenticity, no holds barred, no limits…and you believe without a doubt that you can have it, then your resistance magically melts away and you move forward with enthusiasm and great speed.
5. Diligently Tend To Your Vibration
At this point in our evolution, the matrix of time is bending and shifting. Things are speeding up. The time between a thought and its manifestation into form is getting shorter and shorter.
We cannot afford to be lazy in our intentions and thinking. Yes, our neurobiology and our habits make it easy to fall back on old programming. To make change requires consistent application and discipline.
Your mind is an abundant garden. A garden needs good light, soil and water to reach its full potential. Tend to the garden of your mind. Give yourself Light and nourishment to help you maximize the potentials of your dreams.
Educate yourself. Surround yourself with people who support your creative process. Celebrate your successes. Nurture yourself and allow yourself to receive. Delight in your magnificence. Align yourself with your Divinity.
You are an Unlimited Child of God. The more you practice, the easier it gets. And the easier it gets, the easier it gets.
6. Remember Who You Are and Why You are Here
You are here for a reason. You intended to be here at this time to co-create the future of this world. You are an extremely powerful, unlimited, fully supported Light Being.
You have an important role to play in the evolution of this planet. Each and every one of you has a special job here. In this incarnation, you chose a specific energetic blueprint to help you fulfill your life’s mission and purpose.
It is crucial that you understand yourself and who you are so that you can continue to create in alignment with the magnificence of who you intended yourself to be.
7. Ask For What You Really Want
You WILL get what you ask for but only if it is what you really want. If you are not courageously asking for exactly what you want, your vibration and intentions won’t line up behind it and it won’t happen.
So many of us, right now, are walking around frustrated because this “manifesting” thing doesn’t seem to be working. If what you are intending isn’t really what you are wanting, if your seeming desire is a compromise, an obligation or even if it isn’t big enough, you will struggle to get enough energy rolling to create the momentum for creation.
Part of the experience here on the planet at this time is not so much about creating the things we desire as much as it is about creating a vibration of joy and delight and gaining the experience of mastering the power of Alchemy.
We must master Alchemy, as we will be called on to co-create on a global level to change the collective matrix. If we are to collectively choose a destiny for this planet, we have to be experienced conscious creators.
8. Pray For Your Evolution Every Day
This shift on the planet requires discipline. We cannot afford to spend energy focusing on the things, which we do not like about our world, as we know it, or we will create that which we are seeking to eliminate from our experience.
In order to stay aligned on the cutting-edge of consciousness, it is crucial that you set a daily intention to vibrate in alignment with the high vibrations of joy, delight and love. When you pray see yourself manifesting the exact experiences and support you need to help you clarify your intentions and maintain your vibrational alignment with that which you desire.
9. Practice, Practice, Practice
There is no moment in your day or night that is not a spiritual moment. All moments, intentions and actions are spiritual. You are an infinite Light Being experiencing a human perception. This is a small perception of the total aspect of who you really are. It takes practice to live the human life and blend it with the larger aspect of your Divinity.
We are so used to living in a way that is unconscious and haphazard. To implement deliberate, intention-based living takes practice. Alchemy is a new skill and you will have to practice repeatedly.
To be an alchemist is not any different than being a musician. We are all born with the potential to be musicians just like we are all born with the potential to be powerful alchemists. It takes time and practice to make a good musician, just as it takes time and practice to make a good alchemist.
10. Create Community
While making changes in your vibration and mindset ultimately is a personal journey that you must take alone, your outer reality can profoundly influence your inner reality, too. Frequencies modulate. The more you attract and align with others of similar intent and vibration, the faster you will all progress.
This is a time of deep community. We will be called upon to unite in consciousness to shift our collective beliefs and the collective projection of the planetary matrix. We are not here on this journey to be alone. We are here to create a new world together. We must align ourselves energetically to project vibration of the matrix of Heaven here on Earth.
Now is the time to practice co-creating unified goals and intentions together. When we come together in groups of two or more with the intention to create a deliberate experience we amplify our energies and our opportunities for growth.
11. Be Honest and Authentic
As a creator, you cannot create from a dishonest intention. Your underlying belief and motive for your dishonesty will somehow manifest, usually as chaos. It is Law. You are either going to get caught in your dishonesty because you are afraid of being caught and you focus on it, or you will get caught because your underlying desire is to be authentic.
If your actions and words are not authentic, the truth will prevail. If you are not fully intending what you are saying, there will be no manifestation.
Your ultimate responsibility is to live true to yourself and your desires, with the understanding that when you live true to yourself, you live in alignment with God and your motivations will be to harm no others.
You cannot be responsible for other people’s reactions to your truth. You cannot deny who you are or your purpose because of your fear that you may hurt others. You will ultimately hurt them more with your dishonesty. You cannot control the feelings or reactions of others, although you can control your experience of others.
You are perfectly created to assume a role in the evolution of the planet. When you step away from the authentic calling of your soul, you walk away from your potential points of contact that will allow you to create destinies with integrity.
The truth is sometimes when we are not acting authentically, we miss opportunities to evolve and keep others from growing as well. We are not here to be heroes or martyrs. Nor are we here to suffer.
12. Let Go Of the Ropes
For lifetimes we have been conditioned to be prepared, just in case. In the evolving times to come, the cataclysmic nature of potential events may be so unexpected that there will be no preparing.
This is why mastering Alchemy is so vital. When you master Alchemy, you can always use intention and your vibrational alignment to know how to navigate through unpredictable situations.
Alchemy prepares the way for constant and everyday miracles. When you understand the Laws and the physics of the Universe, you know that you can never fall or fail, you are always fully supported and the full blueprint for creation is within you.
Faith and trust are like muscles. They need to be strengthened with exercise and practice. Practice Alchemy until you are a master. Let go and trust that when you are in alignment with your Life Purpose and your Divine Blueprint, you will be fully supported.
13. Be Deliberate and Remember Choice
There is not a single moment when you do not have control over your experience. You may not be able to change actual events. There are some events that have been scripted into your journey since before you got here. But you do have control over how you will experience all circumstances.
If you choose to focus on what you do like and what is good about a situation, difficult as it may be, you will ultimately have a deeply different experience than if you are resisting and pushing against situations.
When the heat is on and your experience seems too challenging and difficult, stop and redirect your focus on what you want to be experiencing, what you desire to feel in the situation and hold your attention and emotions in that place to the best of your ability.
It may seem counter-intuitive at this point but I restate that which you focus on grows. If you want to change your experience, you have to change your focus. Look at the good in your situation and keep your focus on your desired outcome.
It’s up to you.
