“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
We have been looking at the various ways in which you are handling the stresses in your lives, and we have noticed something that we would like to point out to all of you. You often find that you are in a place where you put pressure on yourselves, and that pressure is coming from within you. The stress that you experience then is created from your own stance, your own goals that you’ve set for yourselves.
It is not as though there is someone else outside of you putting the pressure on you that results in the stress that you experience. You are literally doing it to yourselves and creating problems for yourselves where you need not experience such things. When we observe you, we often wonder what the benefit is of putting the pressure on yourselves and experiencing the stress.
And our conclusion is that you are attempting to avoid a much more painful experience, a much more painful realization. So let us say you are putting pressure on yourselves to accomplish something, like a goal, because you believe that in the accomplishing of the goal, you will feel better about yourselves. And if it looks like you are not going to be able to accomplish the goal, you experience more and more stress.
Look at the areas in your lives where you are putting pressure on yourselves to succeed at something. Let go of that particular goal, and instead give yourselves the unconditional love and the unconditional acknowledgement that you deserve. In other words, stop trying to prove to yourselves that you are good or that you are good enough to be worthy of something or someone.
You can always tell when you are putting that pressure on yourselves to succeed because you find yourselves in a constant state of anxiety, in a constant state of worry and even panic. You find yourselves fighting against the clock and the calendar, rather than relaxing into the present. You need not prove yourselves to anyone, including yourselves. We desire for you that you will release yourselves from the pressure that we see so that you can release yourselves from the stress that you then experience.
And we will continue to offer you our unconditional love in the hopes that you will offer it to yourselves. There is nothing that you need to prove or accomplish in this lifetime, or in any other. Feel the relief that comes from knowing this and from taking the pressure off of yourselves, and you will begin to enjoy this beautiful journey that you are on.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
