Home Article Library June 2010 Embracing our Seniority

Inelia Benz

In England, old people are officially called Senior Citizens.

Senior, according to the Princeton online dictionary, means: older; higher in rank; longer in length of tenure or service; "senior officer".

My friend and sister-in-law, Loreto Alonso Alegre Arana recently linked a video of Mayan Grandmother Margarita on facebook for our benefit.  This is the first time I have hear of this amazing Grandmother and her teachings.

It is so wonderful to see that here is a woman, Abuela Margarita, who has paved the path of Ascension all of her life.  Her message is simple, easy to understand and direct.

There is a point in the interview where Grandma Margarita, mentions that we arrive at a point in life when we have closed the circle. According to her teachings, this is age 52, at which point we go back to birth and begin our work of mothering Humanity.  We then have children all over the world.  Children that we teach what we have learned and also LOVE.

Although my teachings are mostly agnostic in nature, and from personal experience, I have also had great teachers.  Seniors who have taken the time to put down their learned teachings down on paper, taken the time to go out in the world to impart their wisdom and share what they have brought with them.  As well as one unwilling Machi, who was placed in my path to share generations of wisdom and knowledge she carried within her.

It is up to us to discern what is right and what is wrong for us, unburdened by the thought that our intuitive knowings and channeled information will be polluted.  Not all flavors of teaching will be to our taste, and our inner guidance can let us know if we are barking up the wrong tree.

We must trust our ability to discern what is coming from source and what are ego ramblings.

It is also up to us to recognize the moment we ourselves reach Seniority and embrace it with our love filled hearts.  Due to the speeding up of evolutionary process, this moment arrives much, much earlier in life than 52.  It is a moment of, "oh, I am a grownup", combined with a sense of single minded embracing of one's life's work, and a sense of freedom never before felt.

Grandma Margarita mentions that some people, when they reach that point of completeness, get stuck there.  Women in particular will start looking after grandchildren, or get stuck in "controlling" things.  I would add another layer here, particularly for the West, and say some men and women get stuck here trying to hold on to their youth and sexual desirability.

Before she died, I asked my mother what it felt like to go through menopause, one of the things she said was, "with sexual desire out of the way, I can now see and think straight.  I feel much saner."  It is saddening to think that most women automatically begin hormone treatment or go on the pill to stop menopause and this natural state of saneness.

What seniority has meant to me is a huge sense of release and freedom to speak, unburdened by ego restraints.  I can call a spade a spade when it serves another person's evolution, I can then watch as either they defend their rightness and prove me wrong, or step back and have a "wow" moment as their awareness expands.

I can also start websites like this one and put down on "paper" everything I have learned, and are still learning, for the benefit of anyone with an internet connection without having to "color" it to please editors, book publishers, or anyone who stands between an author and a reader, including friends and relatives.  Thus delivering the messages with their full unaltered flavor, to be absorbed or spat out by anyone who cares to try it out.

As for my personal work, I am an Ascension worker, this means that whomever is open to ascension and has any length of contact with me, or my work, will go through a personal level of transformation and ascension.  Does the contact change me? No.   The reason is that I am not involved in the process. The "I" who is here on Earth is simply a vessel for Oneness to come through, and for the work of Planetary Ascension to be completed.  And that is another thing that comes with age, surrendering our "identity" by stepping away and letting our Oneness take over in order to accomplish the work uncolored by ego or personal constraints.

A bit of wisdom I recently learned from another Senior, Denise Linn:

Don't let your judgment of me, get in the way of you learning what you came here to learn.

And I would like to add:

Don't let judgment of yourself get in the way of you teaching what you came here to teach.

With all my love,

Abuela Inelia, title earned and embraced with humble gratitude.

This is awesome! I just turned 49 four days ago and over the last 1/2 year came into my seniority. I alternate between the "loss" of my youth and passion and the saneness/peace you describe. As a young attorney I used to be terrified in court. Now, it doesn't bother me a wit. I enjoy the latter confidence; but, do feel more separate from my younger husband, for whom I had great passion. This sense of separateness is strange and I'm not sure what it means. I love him but he is clearly in a different place.

I'm closer now to my son than ever, and our mother-son relationship feels almost archetypal. He has grown stronger as I have. Has anyone else felt this? Suggestions?

Thank you Inelia. When I read your words, I also hear your voice. Sounds true.

Thank you for this. Just what I needed to hear today.

During a recent visit with my Grandmother, she is 87, I could not help but look at all her wrinkles, and noting how beautiful they were and how they made her so much more beautiful(and she was a real 'looker' in her youth.) She has always been a woman of love and her questions of 'Are you happy?' were not meant to make her feel better, but to prod me into moving forward and back into love again. I do not have the opportunity to see her often, yet every visit I do have provides me with new vigour and energy.
As well, in some parallel to your mothers comments on menopause, I am not quite 52 yet(only 44), however I have gotten to the point that, I too, feel much saner without sexual desire exerting so much control. I feel so much more 'unenslaved' when it is no longer a matter of reacting to an impulse, but viewing it as a sharing to bring two souls closer together.
Thank you for answering the cries and coming to this time when we need you so much.
Light and Love,

dear abuela inelia

i was so happy to read on your website about abuela margarita, for she is my spiritual mother and a wonderful teacher to me.
she always talks about how the "seniors" are like pure gold and that we should stop seeing them as a burden to our society. she is an incredible open-minded woman with always a laugh on her face. she has taught me to honor my grey hair instead of hating it.

thankyou inelia for your life! i am grateful to have founded you and i love how you express yourself in a very easy and understanding way.

all my love and gratitude

It may certainly be true that one may reach this threshold of a "new life" or new beginning before age 52, it seems it may depend also on how much time they needed to receive what they wanted to before that age. In my case, I chose to gain a ton of experience (so when I did go into world service mode, those I encountered would truly feel/know I understood and I also had much personal healing/clearin g from many lives on Earth prior).

To be 53 this year (Sept) and can attest to being "re-born" this year - even smelling baby powder during a meditation where guidance was getting that point across to me of my transition into a "new life". Not having details yet, I know it to be one of planetary service - not just to my "own" personal family. Many get stuck because they procrastinate doing their personal "work" and aren't ready when time comes (have seen this). Listen to heart / guidance always.

Thanks Inelia for everything!

Abuela Inelia, thank you again for all of your offerings to us. i am over 50, yet I feel younger than this day and also older than the mountains that surround e...if u know what i mean =D :lol:

I have just turned 50 last week and it felt such a peaceful place to arrive at. When I turned 30 I cried for I thought I had lost my youth. Now I am older and wiser - perhaps :lol:

Just watched your video today....the interview with Paul Ryan, shared by a friend on FB....and absolutely loved it! Thank you so much for filming it! There have been a couple other 'messages' of possibility lately in addition to yours, all confirming that Ascension is a certainty and reminding us of the call to do our part, fearlessly, whether it be a small 'job' or a 'big' one. Actually, it seems to me that the ideas of big and small or purely an illusion...some thing is either in alignment with ascension or not.....so, who's to say at the end of the day?! I'd like to stay in touch with you and I agree to do my part. Hugs! Abuela Linda

Process your Fears

Fear is the emotion that keeps you back, that has the most lowering effect on vibrational level. Fear can remain as a back thought when you do your meditations or visualizations. Suppressing this emotion is not helpful, but you can process it and release it from your body. The transcript of the exercise is freely available.
