Glass Ceilings and the
Transcendence of Consciousness
Rev. Rick Jelusich
The low hum of the Earth reaches up and
embraces you in her sweet energies of the reminders of physical manifestation. How
beautifully fragrant it is to be made manifest in this place at this time.
And yet you tell me you have never been so challenged as now. In fact, many have
contemplated the possible escape routes necessary for a quick exit from the planet's grasp
upon the physical plane. Need you jump on the nearest spaceship that passes by, divesting
yourself of the physical "container" in which you reside? (Heavens Gate ref)
Is that your reality? Would you tell me that you have been meditating for years to no
avail, that you have trod the path of the humble One to no fruition? How is that possible?
I don't speak to you now as one who has never tasted the saltiness of remorse, even though
I knew and know now that I must follow my inner guidance. I didn't know fully then in
those times that I had all of the information I needed, nor the prescience to feel
adequately prepared for the consequences of the actions I was to undertake deliberately.
But responsible for my actions, I am. Whether I know consciously the fullness of the
parameters of a growing situation or all of the nuances of an emotional quandary, I do
know what is in my heart. I do know that that quiet space is there, always, as a place of
repose and peace if I but find the courage to encounter it face to face. I know that at
all times I know enough. To walk the walk takes courage, but also the knowledge that one
is either on their center or not. To not be on your center is an untenable position, and
creates a great wobbling motion of the spirit about the peaceful inner center.
To find peace in this life, means to walk the walk. Facing what you would rather not face,
but doing so in faith. Because often what you face changes its countenance completely in
the light of the faith you have in the Divine Essence within you. And situations that are
faced with Divine peace radiating from the center change both the perception and hence the
reality. I am not one to confront, but have confronted my own fears and found little to
I have feared what I do not know about myself, and have found the answer reflected back to
me in the Godself of all the divine individuals that I am so fortunate to meet in this
life. You have shown me so much of me that I can scarce thank you enough, save to serve
you with evermore intent in authenticity and humbleness.
Do not think for one moment that you have reached any kind of pinnacle in life in your
achievements, either spiritually or mentally. Would you consciously place a limit on God?
Isn't that paradoxical? If on the one hand you claim to be a spiritual aspirant but tell
me you have reached the glass ceiling and can arise in consciousness no further, are you
not limiting yourself?
Experience is just that. It is rooted in the temporal and spatial dimension. It is rooted
in the past, as a framework for the mind to reach so far in practicality and efficiency.
Alone, experience is not enough. To tell me you have hit the glass ceiling in your
lightwork is to say that you have not connected to the inner you in enough faith to know
what you do not know. You must embrace the mysterious in you. You have to be willing to
trust that there is an unseverable part of you that is connected, as all of you, to the
Divine Essence that flows through every fiber of the Universe, the Mind of God. Everything
and Everywhere, you are a part of All that IS. And in that consciousness, you are
connected to all of the answers, to all of the questions that could possibly be framed.
The finger of God always points upward in consciousness, always nudging you further;
ascending in consciousness.
Can you arise in consciousness, transcend to a level where you realize in a very small way
how much there is that you do not know? Would you ever say that you could "level
off" at some point and not ascend further? Can you really hit a glass ceiling?
Perhaps, temporarily, you can reach a plateau that is divinely appropriate for you where
you may tarry or wander a while, all the better for your evolvement that you drink of the
waters of experience that you may unfold all the better.
Perhaps, temporarily, you must be at a certain level until all of your physical nature is
in alignment for the next step. God love's to have his/her skirts tugged on by us. To do
so takes effort on our part, and we have to be in a place of mind where we really mean
what our actions convey.
You must be authentic. That means you must be able to say in every moment that you are in
connection with that part of the REAL you that urges you onward in your spiritual
pursuits; that part of you that would rather serve in the light than do anything else. You
have to be willing to be put to the test anytime, anywhere to prove to yourself the
courage of your convictions.
Once I was talking to Lucas Firewalker, a delightful man who has such intense focus he can
walk across hot coals and bend reinforcing bars with his throat. I did not feel the need
to prove myself by walking on coals, I told him. I also told him of changes I had recently
made in my relationship, vocation, and financial support in my walk of faith.
"Everything in life," he told me, "is a Fire-walk." You know, he's
right. Everything you do, you must do from the center of your being. To do less is to live
outside of the center of your knowingness of the divine inspiration that ceaselessly flows
through you. It is a never-ending fountain of LOVE. And you will be made to hit the glass
ceilings in life so that you can transcend them in consciousness, lifted up through them
effortlessly by your commitment to the God within you that empowers you over any obstacle,
any transition of the emotions, mentality, physicality, or spirituality.
You will scarce notice the soft evaporation of such ceilings when you are in divine right
action. It is as though the mists were clearing in the mountain meadow on a beautiful
spring morning, making way for the beauty and the glory of the sun that it may shine on
Mists of the mind are a vaporous thing, at best. Oft times we "think" we know
the best of situations, only to find a more elegant answer framed within the gentle folds
of the love within us. If we would but feel the rightness of a situation, rather than
hammer the rightness into it through sheer thought mentality. It is the union of the heart
and the mind in divine focus that renders the thoughts (and the world) tame and
There is not separation between heart and mind. They are two sides of the same coin. It is
merely the focus. The next time you feel as though you've hit the glass ceiling,
understand that you are ready to make a great leap of consciousness. You are fueled by the
passionate heart, that knows no bounds to the love that can be expressed. The mind has
framed its own limitations in a goodness that enables the physical existence to make way
across the face of the Earth, navigating with good proficiency the matters pertaining to
the physical plane.
To intercept the Divine inner Self that emanates through you, you need not
"think" it into existence, for it already IS. We often are victims of our own
minds. A mind that is certainly capable of the most elaborate sophistication can scarce
comprehend the magnitude of the feeblest of expressions from the heart. You must not
believe your mind to be inferior or in any way deficient. The mind has become accustomed
to the third dimension; so much so that it may and often does attempt to explain the whole
of creation through its narrow focus on the materiality.
I believe about 90% (if one dare to quantify that which cannot be quantified, though it
suffices through the material point of view) of our true reality is in other dimensions
and planes of existence. That 90% of our soul aspect is spread across space and time, and
that only about 10% (if that) of our functioning consciousness is here on the earth plane
at any one time.
I have noticed through my work as a spiritual accelerator and activator that beings will
inculcate more of their divine aspects on the higher planes into this one, thus achieving
levels of "ascension" into the physical body. I have witnessed "soul
merges," where one is ready to ascend to a higher sphere of transcendence in
consciousness. This is as it should be. We were meant to work and to play here, with the
Earth mother, gently in her embrace if only for a little while. We were meant to behold
each other in brilliance and exuberant expression of the boundless love that we can
We are meant to live fully through our senses both physical and non-physical, and to
express the beauty and joy we feel inside of us in integrity and Divine focus.
In these times of stringent shaking of the very institutions that framed our early
childhood, we are experiencing paradigm shifts from within. And isn't that the way it
should be? Does not the outer world only reflect what is going on in the inner planes of
I've said before that this is the year of the spiritual body; a time when all foundational
matter that is not positively rooted in centrality to Divine focus will be intensely
shaken and crumbled, only that they may be rebuilt again in a better, more elegant way.
Do think it is possible that a glass ceiling could in some ways be a comfortable place to
be? Would it not make a convenient excuse for no further spiritual growth because you
"couldn't figure it out?" Do you think there is anyone you know that has bounced
for a good long while off the walls of their own self-imposed limitations, only to be
released when they were finally either angry enough or resolved enough to trust their
feelings; even if begrudgingly so?
Have you seen others trapped within the confines of their own belief systems, convenient
(and sometimes willing) prisoners of their own thought processes? How about those who are
absolutely unhappy prisoners of their minds, trapped in endless loops of frustration, a
seeming journey here on Earth consisting of an infinite series of self-plugging orifices?
No way out?
Perhaps that is a good thing. I had a session with a highly successful psychologist in Los
Angeles. She told me that a few days after her session that her whole world had shifted,
not to her liking. But that is exactly what needed to happen to shatter the glass ceiling
she had imposed for herself. She had grown as a beautiful soul as far as her current
reality set would take her. The time was now ripe to transcend her current state of
experiential reality for a higher realm. And transcend she did, although through a
tumultuous process of seeming defeats and wrong turns. And as I write this I know she is
ascending in consciousness this very moment, because she has the courage to be divinely
yielding to the next level of awareness, though the conscious mind can barely conceive of
such a state, and certainly could not do so without benefit of the heart's trust in the
mystery of the Divine in all of us.
And so it is. Look around you and see the changes occurring. They are outward pictures of
what is changing within you. Accept your greatness as a being of light rooted in your
ability to flow boundless abundant love through you. Know that you have at all times the
passionate flame of Life, Love, Light and Wisdom burning brightly within you; enough to
pass through any glass ceiling you could ever imagine.
Enough to change the lives of people around you through the strength of your character as
a being of Light. Enough Love and Light to allow people to see the real you as you are
beginning to see the real you, yourself. You are changing, growing, evolving beings of
Divine origin. You cannot be otherwise; it is your birthright.
There is no glass ceiling save for your mind's attempt to deal with your awareness. It is
not a trap; it is a springboard to the next level. It is an opportunity to accelerate
yourself into the heart of the Divine. At the point of perception of the limitation you
may race ahead of self-imposed though sometimes consciously unknown barriers. Trust in
your heart; it will never deny you nor lead you astray. Trust in your feelings, first, no
matter the outside circumstances.
I love you with all my heart. May you prosper in the Light of God, and bathe in the
unceasing emanations of God's Love.
May God Bless You on Your Journey Home.
