Career or Vocation Question Part 2

 

See Part 1 here.

Q:     Hi, I’m going to read a statement that I wrote in response to my question about vocation. Thank you very much. I am humbled to have a response to my question. However, I am also very sad, as this tells me nothing. I’ve got a knack of, whenever I speak, just enraging people. It simply seems to be a native talent I have. It would be one thing to be able to mouth off on whatever my opinions are. But I don’t have money, or power, or prestige, or a lot of friends and family who’ve got my back. I am a completely powerless nobody, just another mouthy woman who needs to be put in her place.

So the idea of speaking is actually anathema to me. Unless I win the lottery, or marry money, or get a lucrative job – which was kind of the idea behind the whole question – I need to figure out what to do to get some money in a way that won’t kill my soul. And speaking in some way, I just don’t know. I just don’t see a way there, or where to start. I’m sorry. I wish I could be more enthusiastic. I’m just very unhappy about things, and my prospects right now. Thank you very much for listening and considering.

Kipu:    Yes. And we would thank you for opening this dialogue, and for sharing your concerns with us at this time. We would note that your question, as stated, contains multiple questions. And you have in fact answered your own question, however in the reverse order of the asking.

As we have heard you speak, we have heard your desire for connection, for some connectivity, for some acceptance from other beings who are willing to validate you within your position and within your own viewpoint. And while we would certainly disagree with your characterization of yourself as someone who is in need of being “put into her place,” or a nothing, nobody, well, we would certainly disagree with all of that, and with the idea of humbling oneself to speak with us, which we found very amusing, honestly.

We would wish to impress upon you, firstly, that you have already entered into – fully within your means, with no need for winning the lottery – such a conversation. And that is where you are now, with us. You have found a group of listeners who are open to your communication, and who are unwilling to respond to you with rage, and who are unwilling to reflect back to you the rage which you heap upon yourself with your words and thoughts.

We would note that many of us among what we call the Kipu are rogues and scoundrels. Many of us are scholars. We are all different types. And thus you are among friends, and among a number of friends that you cannot probably estimate.

For just as the channel is one cog on a wheel, a larger soul complex which contains many, many, vast number of different unique individuals from Earth and from other places, from many different times and spaces, so are you. This is not in any way a unique characteristic of the channel.

You are also a multidimensional being, connected on many levels to many others. And on the most mundane and practical level, you have connected here with us in this conversation. And thus it is good to begin at the beginning, yes?

Now, with respect to the beginning part of the conversation, we would note that there are many on your planet who make their living – and make quite a decent living, and have quite larger followings on your social media – running their mouths and speaking their hatred, and saying whatever horrible things come to their minds. However, I do not note any of them doing so without reflection, very negative reflections coming back towards them. For there is always the equal and opposite reaction, and this is on every level – energetic, physical, material.

And thus we would suggest to you that you select your companions and those among whom you communicate more carefully, and begin there. And as you begin opening up to your own voice, and to the supportive voices of others like ourselves, then you may find more and more opportunities to express your vocation. Thus we are asking you to, again, redefine your concept of vocation and career. It is certainly possible to create a career in which you say everything that comes to your mind. We could name names. The channel could certainly provide you with a list from the top of her head.

However, we sense that this is not really what you are asking. What you are really asking is how to find your communication, how to find your basis of support among people on the Earth. And you must find that first within yourself. You must first yourself be willing to establish loving communication, in which you are not degraded or belittled in any way, in which the things that you have to say are certainly valued. And you may find other people reflecting that idea back to you. However, others will not value your input any more than you have.

And thus we thank you for having taken the initial steps by sharing your voice with us, and we would place the ball squarely back in your court for further input about your voice. We, again, do not intend to be evasive. We believe that eventually you may find other ideas about generating money and how you spend your time and effort. As you begin to take a smaller approach, a more immediate, step-by-step, thought-by-thought sort of “weeding of the garden,” you may find suddenly your whole life feels a lot sunnier, yes?

And thus in our 100 percent acceptance of you, and our eagerness to hear the things that you have to say, we invite you now to say whatever it is that you would like to say, whatever it is that you feel you have not been able to communicate to others and be accepted. And we thank you again for your sharing.

Can You Give Some Career Advice?

 

Q:        I’m trying to get some direction in my life, specifically career or vocation.  Thank you.

Kipu:   Yes.  We thank you for the question regarding your career or your vocation.  And we realize that you have asked this question meaning in terms of a job or an exchange for money specifically.  We would assert to you that you have in fact asked the question that you truly wanted to answer, which is not so much about money, though you believe that it is, we suspect, based on the subharmonics in your voice.

And we would say that vocation itself, the word “vocation” begins with V-O-C, just as vocal, vocalization.  And we would suggest that this root is no accident, that you may begin to think of a vocation not as a thing you do for money, but as a way that you express your higher truth, a way that you verbalize, with your life, the Creation of your own truth and your own expression.

We are aware that there can be a discrepancy between that which you would like to do and that which you believe is practically feasible for you to do.  And this is a large question which many people deal with.  We would suggest to you that so many teachers in the past have not all been incorrect on the same point when they have said to follow your bliss.  This is in fact another way of saying, “pursue your vocation.”

And so we would assert for you that you may begin to allow your vocation to arise, like the planting of a seed.  The New Year is a very auspicious time to begin such things – the New Year, the new moon, anytime you feel very much like having a new beginning.  You may choose any such moment to create a new beginning.

We would suggest to you that you allow your vocation to begin to arise, not in your logical head, but in your knowing heart, and allow your vocation to reveal itself to you as you continue to pursue your job.  You may begin to view the two things as entirely separate.  And eventually if you remove the pressure, if you remove the barriers and the distinctions, you may come to discover that your true vocation will support the lifestyle that is right for you, that fits you.  That is a natural and automatic by-product of expressing your own higher truth, is that higher level of order within the life that is created in this fashion.

Now, we do not intend to be evasive with your question.  We are simply pointing out that there is no higher authority on your truth than yourself.  And thus we can offer you no specific direction or pointer, other than inside.  You must look into your own heart, and ask yourself how you would prefer to spend each moment of your human life.  What would you like to say?  On your final day, what would you like to be remembered for?  And then pursue those things as your vocation.

And begin very small.  And allow it to have no pressure whatsoever, no need for this vocation to support you materially.  And as you allow this to grow and blossom alongside the job, the job may begin to seem less necessary.  The rigidity with which you seem to feel confined to your situation or circumstance will fall away naturally, on its own, as you find your own balance, your own stability, and your own point of center within your own vocation.

 

We hope that this has answered your question to your satisfaction.  Again, we do not wish to be evasive.  However, you are the world’s foremost authority on your own happiness, and thus your own vocation.  And we would remind you that there is no correct answer.  It is not a multiple choice where you will choose doctor or lawyer or candlestick maker.  But it is a fluid work in progress, just as you are, and just as your consciousness is.

And thus rather than choosing a vocation with your head and applying everything else behind it, we are suggesting that you allow space for that very small voice that knows your satisfaction, that knows your heart’s desire, to begin speaking.  And it is in the practice of hearing and learning to hear that small voice that knows your true vocation, that is where you will find the answers to all of your questions.  Because the answers are always within you.

We know that you are certainly an intelligent and capable enough woman to apply yourself in any chosen direction.  However, if such ventures have not so far yielded satisfactory results for you, then we suggest that perhaps this alternative method, where you allow life to cater to your feelings and needs rather than attempting to craft or create a life that would permit for your needs.  It is something akin to allowing something to grow around you, rather than fitting yourself in.

And again, we thank you for this question, and we hope that you may find our answer useful.  And we wish you all the best in utilizing this auspicious New Year energy to take yourself in new and wonderful directions.
