“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We have been interested in the ways in which you all interact with each other socially for quite some time because it says a lot about who you are as individuals. Who you are with each other is who you are with yourselves. If you are hiding aspects of yourself from another person, or everyone, then chances are you are hiding something from yourself as well. You are in denial of an important aspect of you.

Now, this is something that is manifesting itself more and more as people only show the positive aspects of their lives on social media. This has been going on since before the dawn of the social media era, however. When people would talk about what was going on in their lives and in their families prior to the existence of Facebook and Instagram, they would usually only tell the good parts and leave the rest out. Now, of course, there are exceptions and there always have been.

There are people who are in touch with who they are to such a degree that they love sharing all aspects of themselves, and that has always been the case. But when we observe you, we observe what the majority of you are doing, and the majority of you are holding back what you feel ashamed of about yourselves. And if you’re not ready to admit to your friends, co-workers, family members, and even strangers, that you are in pain, for example, then chances are you are not dealing with that pain, not in a healthy way.

And so it is a good time to ask yourselves if you are being honest about who you are and how you feel, and we are talking about being honest with yourselves about these things. That’s where you want to start. You want to start with your inner dialogue. You want to start by noticing how you feel and what you do about it, and during this period of self-examination, maybe it would be a good idea to stay off of all social media platforms. Because if you only see the best of what everyone else is living, and at the same time, you are trying to face your demons, your darkest hours, that might make it much more challenging. In fact, we are quite certain that it will.

When you are ready to dig deep inside yourself, you need that time to yourself to feel your feelings, to examine your thoughts, and to decide if the person you present to the world is the person you really want to be. When you do this work, you liberate yourself. You can be free to be who you really are, but you cannot look to society to grant you permission first, because in most cases, it won’t. You first need to decide that you are perfect just as you are, with all of your issues.

And when you can present that version of yourself to the entire world, then you can start to relate to other people honestly and authentically. Then you can start to develop real friendships, real relationships. Then the healing with family members and others can begin, and that’s what spiritual evolution is all about.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
