EMBRACING THE POWER OF LOVE – Archangel Michael through Ronna Herman

          Beloved masters, all of Creation expands from the Heart Core center of the Supreme Creator outward. The closer you are drawn toward the Core Center of Creation, the more God Power and radiance you will possess. As you progress on the path of higher Self-awareness as a shining Being of Light, you will embody more Sacred Love, and a joyful, serene demeanor, along with an intense desire to be of service to others, will prevail.

          You are composed of UNITS OF ENERGY. You magnetize energy to you, and you radiate qualified energy from you in an Infinity patternIt is important for you to learn to recognize the difference between manifested energy patterns—the difference between the use of DIVINE WILL POWER and SACRED LOVE, empowered by pure Creator Light, and the use of FORCE, employing Primal Life Force Substance or the diminished spectrums of Light, in the manifestation process within the lower densities of expression. There is a vast difference between the various types of energy. Humanity is in the midst of a redistribution of Ray potencies, qualities and aspects. The ego-desire personality uses knowledge and force in the Third-/lower Fourth-Dimensional world of form; whereas the Soul-directed personality uses intuition / inspiration /Sacred Love, fueled by Adamantine Particles of Creator Light, in the Self-expression and manifestation process.

          The Spirit/Essence of our Mother/Father God flow and work through the God Seed-Atom of your individualized Soul Self. When you deny the whisperings of the Soul, you are denying your God-Self. When you are truly OverLighted by your God-Seed Atom, you may journey amongst the many streams of negative consciousness and not be affected in any way. You are totally sheltered by the Sacred Love/Light of our Father/Mother God.

          There are three points of sensitivity within the brain of a Self-master: the Pineal Gland, Pituitary Gland and the Carotid Artery Gland—an Etheric Gland which becomes active as you begin to access the frequencies of the Fifth Dimension. The Adamantine Particles of Divine Light Substance are transported throughout the bodily form via the blood stream. It is through these master glands that the higher frequencies of Divine Light ignite the Seed Atoms within the physical vessel, thereby activating the process of en-Lighten-ment. Remember, you are spiritually responsible for the Creator Light that you integrate and radiate out into the world of form.

          The SACRED MIND is a storehouse for the history and complete journey of the many Facets of the Soul within the Third/Fourth Dimensions. Your Sacred Mind is your direct connection to the multiple Facets of your OverSoul/Higher Selves, and eventually with the multiple Sacred Triads within the Fifth Dimension. Gradually, the Pyramids of Light, where your Etheric Replicas (Sacred Triads) are stored, will reintegrate each level of your Beingness from the lower Dimensions.

          Your immediate goal for this round of Ascension is for all of your Soul Fragments to be reintegrated within the first sub-level of the Fifth Dimension. You will then begin the process of rejoining with your multiple Sacred Triads throughout all the various dimensions within this galaxy; however, your ultimate destination is the Sacred Union with your I AM God-Seed Atom of this Sub-Universe.  Once there, you will bask in the joy of reunion with all the precious Facets of your God-Self, in full conscious awareness, awaiting the time of the next Clarion Call. You will then be prepared to, once more, journey forth out into the great void to fulfill a grand, new Divine Blueprint.

          A substantial portion of humanity is in a phase of transference from an outer focus on the material world to an inner focus on Spirit and Self-awareness. You will hear the inner voice of intuition, and you will sense many new waves of vibration. Aspiration will become recognition, and faith will merge with your new, higher truths. You will be standing at a pinnacle of attainment, gazing at the next lofty peak.  However, you will be aware that you must traverse the valley of shadows before you may, once more, begin your upward journey. Those firmly on the path of Ascension are in the midst of  integrating the remaining aspects of their Higher Self, which consists of clearing all the lower-frequency aspects, as well as accommodating the higher-frequency expressions of Self. This has been called the “renunciation in the esoteric teachings of the past, for it often entails letting go of those things which do not fit into your evolving vibrational patterns. Therefore, there will be a level of discomfort within, as well as a certain level of chaos in your outer world, as it readjusts to fit the emerging, refined You.

          You have a wealth of experience and wisdom to share with the multiple Facets of your Self, and your successes have been duly recorded in the Cosmic Records for future reference. You are learning to erase from your memory and free yourselves from the confines of the collective consciousness belief system; and via your Pyramids of Light in the Higher Dimensions, you are also learning to soar into the more refined realms of awareness. Each time you do so, you gradually bring back with you into your physical vessel and your auric field a portion of the uplifting, harmonious frequencies of the higher realms, which build a stronger, more radiant and expanded force field around you. 

          Faith is an intrinsic facet of trust: faith in yourself and your judgment, faith in those around you who have proven themselves trustworthy and honorable, faith in our Father/Mother God, the Universal Laws, and the Divine Blueprint for the future of humanity.  We are not speaking of blind faith, for that is another way of giving your power away to someone else–their teachings or rules. In your material world, faith is built through actions and positive outcome, a function of the mind filtered through the heart. The heart is both a magnetic and radiating vortex, and it is the storehouse for the true source of human power.

          Your Sacred Mind holds the Seed thoughts of your past and the future, and it is your personal source of the Divine Will and Power from our heavenly Father/Mother God.  Your Seed thoughts for the future must be incubated within the Sacred Heart, and the Adamantine Particles of Creator Light ignited by your altruistic love. Thereby, through your pure intention and actions, they are manifested in the world of form. Abundance of all kinds is a natural manifestation when you are in harmonious attunement with Spirit and the Divine Plan for the greatest good of all.

          In the Third-/Fourth-Dimensional reality, there is a conscious awareness of time. Time is related to space and distance. As you move into the Sixth and Seventh sub-levels of the Fourth Dimension, time becomes more fluid and malleable. As you are aware, your sense of time passing has accelerated dramatically over the last few years. That is because the Earth and a good percentage of humanity have moved into the higher frequencies of the Fourth Dimension; therefore, your conscious awareness of time has also accelerated.  It is more important than ever that you learn to still the mind and focus on the Still Point of awareness—the NOW moment—until it becomes a deep-seated habit.

          A null zone lull, a time of self-contemplation, is imposed by the Soul Self in preparation for every new level of higher awareness. It is a protective device to keep you from making too rapid or superficial progress. There is a rhythm to Soul-expansion: a time of learning, growing and integration, followed by a time of solitude and self-contemplation, and then a phase or a burst of growth, expansion and higher activity. The cycle repeats itself over and over again as you traverse the narrow, steep path of Ascension into the higher realms of Light.

          The brilliance of your physical vessel is determined by the grade of energy you have integrated. The aura is composed of the frequency patterns emanating from the Etheric Vessel–the rate of your vibrations or your Energetic Signature–and the purity and clarity of the colors you radiate. The head center is the custodian of Divine Purpose. You are a planetary Light Bearer. The Beings of higher realms are Celestial Light Bearers.

          There is a POWER IN SPEECH and a POWER IN SILENCE. Sacred sounds are composed of higher frequency words spoken with power—spoken with positive, dynamic intention. You must develop the art of right interpretation of revealed higher truths, and then formulate your intention to manifest this new wisdom as efficiently as possible. Call forth your Sacred Will Power to bring revelation into material manifestation. The Divine Will Blueprint of a master is stored within one of the Kundalini Seed Atoms within the Root Chakra. You will not be able to access this sacred gift until you have harmonized / balanced the frequency patterns of the Fourth Dimension by returning your Fourth-Dimensional environment to the appropriate spectrum of Light and shadow called “duality.”

           Essentially, duality is a system of expansion. It is the merging of Spirit with matter into its highest form (a Soul-infused personality) until it becomes one unit of perfected consciousness. In order to evolve/ascend into the higher frequency levels of consciousness, you must firmly stand and function centered within the Path of Light and Shadow, as you traverse the realms of duality. You must access the Seed Atoms of hope, inspiration and intuition, which are stored within your Sacred Mind and Sacred Heart. As you remove the fog of negativity from your Etheric Body, your mind and emotional body, these precious Seed Atoms gradually begin to pulsate and release the potent, cosmic knowledge/truths/attributes stored therein. You must endeavor to disengage yourself from the glamour of the material world and from the dominant, out-of-balance forces of matter.

       You are learning to gather your spiritual forces by holding steady within the Light. A Self-master learns to concentrate on creating a point of TENSION (In-tention), and through the use of creative imagination, he/she plants the new Seeds of Creation for a particular endeavor. Focus your mind on your higher mental consciousness, and then hold it there in a state of tension, while bringing forth the activated Adamantine Particles of Creator Light from within the storehouse of your Sacred Heart. You will then be ready to breathe out the Self-created pool of energy into your personal Flower-of-Life / Creator Wheel, and out into the world of cause through your conscious intention and Sacred Breath.

          My brave ones, diligently make it a habit to focus on what is right in your everyday life and your personal world, and always envision yourself as you desire to become. We have emphasized that you must practice nonjudgment and that includes judgment of Self.  Remember, you now have access to all of the Creator Particles of Light/Life that you can draw forth into your Sacred Heart. Always bear in mind that these Adamantine Particles of Creation can only be activated by your pure loving intention.

          Many of you have begun, or are ready to embark on, your true mission, whatever that may be. Please remember that the ultimate goal is to become a conveyor of Love/Light. You must live your truth as you learn to traverse the higher Path so that you may fly your vision. You must claim and acknowledge every Facet of your Being as you strive for harmony and unified consciousness.

          Dear ones, when you doubt, need inspiration or strength, come into your Pyramid of Light and we will give you courage, lift you up and inspire you. When you feel lonely or unloved, move into your Sacred Heart center, and we will be waiting there to fill you with the radiant love of our Mother/Father God. I AM Archangel Michael.

MAY 2016 IS INITIATING ANOTHER QUANTUM SHIFT – Patricia Cota-Robles @ Era of Peace

illuminating souls

ART :  unknown artist


by Patricia Cota-Roble

 April 29, 2016

May 2016 is initiating another quantum shift of energy, vibration, and consciousness for Humanity and ALL Life evolving on this sweet Earth. I know that those words will create some anxiety and even a little resistance in many people since it seems that every time we go through one of these major opportunities to move forward in the Light the events in our lives become more intense. In anticipation of that response, the Company of Heaven is reminding each and every one of us that we have been preparing for many lifetimes to not only withstand, but to God Victoriously accomplish this unparalleled Divine Plan for Planet Earth.

The Ascension process we are experiencing at this time has never been attempted in any system of worlds. Never has a planet that has fallen to the depth of separation and duality the Earth fell to been given the opportunity to move forward in the Light in such a short period of time. We are truly in uncharted waters, but you and I and every other person on Earth already have all of the skill, knowledge, strength, courage, and heart commitment we need to accomplish whatever it is that we have volunteered to do during these Cosmic Opportunities. That is true, or we would not have been allowed to embody on Earth during this auspicious time. Keep that profound Truth in the forefront of your heart and mind and KEEP ON KEEPING ON! Ask your I AM Presence to take full dominion of your thoughts, feelings, words, and actions and you will be guided unerringly through this difficult, but most wondrous, personal and planetary transformation. The time for you to fulfill your unique facet of the Divine Plan is NOW!

The encouraging news is that we have already birthed the New Earth and we have moved further up the Spiral of Evolution in the past three years than even the Company of Heaven anticipated. This means that the process of transmuting the gross mutations from the old Earth that we either deliberately or inadvertently created through the manipulation of our fragmented and fear-based human egos is much further along than outer appearances indicate. Consequently, the influxes of Light we are receiving during these opportunities, such as the Light and Divine Intervention we will experience in May 2016, are succeeding beyond the greatest expectations of Heaven.

On April 22, 2016, we experienced a monumental influx of Light from a very powerful Full Moon. Billions of people were focused on this particular Full Moon for various reasons. That focus of Humanity’s attention formed a collective Cup of Consciousness through which the Light of God was able to flow to prepare the Earth and all her Life for the events that will take place in May.

April 22nd is celebrated every year as Earth Day. This year it happened to fall on the Full Moon. Throughout the Day millions of people around the world focused on Mother Earth and flooded her and all Life with Love, Compassion, Healing, and Reverence, all of which was greatly amplified by the other events taking place that day.

The Full Moon on April 22nd took place during the Sun Cycle of Taurus which is considered by Buddhists to be the most powerful Full Moon of the year. The annual celebration that takes place on that day is the Wesak Festival, which is considered the day of Buddha’s Birth, Enlightenment, and Ascension. Every year billions of Buddhists and other exponents of Buddha’s Love and Enlightenment focus on the Light, Healing Love, and Enlightenment Buddha brings to the Earth on behalf of Humanity.

Because this year is Leap Year the Passover Full Moon celebrated in Judaism was pushed back one month. Usually the Passover Full Moon is the first Full Moon following the March Equinox which occurred this year during a Lunar Eclipse on March 23rd. But this Leap Year, Passover began at Sundown on April 22nd, so in addition to Earth Day and the Wesak Festival, on April 22nd millions of people also focused on the celebration of Passover. The collective focus of Humanity’s attention throughout that sacred and holy day exponentially expanded the Light of the Full Moon and the various celebrations that bathed the Earth. In perfect Divine Order, that influx of Light paved the way for the events we will be blessed with in May.


In the Heavenly Realms May is referred to as The Mystical Month of May. That is due to the various activities of Light that occur at both inner and outer levels during the month of May every year.

May 1st is considered Saint Germain’s Ascension Day. Saint Germain and his Twin Flame Lady Portia, who is known in Inner Realms as the Goddess of Divine Justice, serve the Earth at this time in the capacity of Keepers of the 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection. These August Beings of Light are actually Cosmic Beings that serve in this capacity for all of the Sons and Daughters of God throughout the Universe. However, because of the urgency of the hour on Planet Earth the focus of their attention is being greatly intensified on this one tiny planet. The Violet Flame that they are responsible for sustaining on Earth is associated with the 7th Solar Aspect of Deity, and it will be the predominant frequency of Light bathing the Earth during the entire 2,000-year cycle of the Aquarian Age. This Sacred Fire pulsates with the perfect balance of our Father God’s Blue Flame of Divine Power and our Mother God’s Pink Flame of Divine Love.

After the myriad shifts of energy, vibration, and consciousness that have taken place since the Birth of the New Earth on December 21-22, 2012, we finally reached a critical mass that allowed us to complete our transition into the Age of Aquarius. On January 18, 2016, the moment we entered the annual Sun Cycle of Aquarius, the Earth and all Life evolving upon her were Inbreathed up the Spiral of Evolution by our omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Father-Mother God, the Cosmic I AM, All That Is.

During that Cosmic Inbreath, we officially Ascended into NEW frequencies of the 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection. This is a frequency of Light beyond anything we have ever been able to withstand at a cellular level. As we bathed in this Healing Sacred Fire, the Earth completed her sojourn through the Age of Pisces. During that evolutionary Inbreath, Mother Earth was securely anchored into the full embrace of the 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Age of Aquarius on the New Earth.

Now, beginning on May 1, 2016 and building in momentum until every man, woman, and child on Earth has completed his or her Ascension into their Crystalline Solar Light Bodies on the New Earth, Saint Germain and Lady Portia have selflessly volunteered to sustain this unfathomable frequency of the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection within the Divinity of each person’s Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame. These precious Beings of Light will continue this colossal service to Humanity and the Light until every person’s I AM Presence has integrated effectively enough into his or her physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies to sustain this perfect balance of our Father-Mother God unimpeded by the negativity still surfacing in the outer world.

From outer appearances it may seem as though it will take aeons of time for the completion of this purging of the old Earth to be accomplished, but that is an illusion. The Beings of Light in the Realms of Illumined Truth said that if that were true our Father-Mother God would not have issued a Cosmic Dispensation that allows Saint Germain and Lady Portia to intervene in Humanity’s Ascension process in this way. The Beings of Light have indicated that this Divine Intervention is tangible proof that we are far closer to our Victory in the Light than our life experiences and the life experiences of the masses of Humanity are reflecting at this time.

Through your I AM Presence, in your meditations and your quiet time throughout the day, invoke Saint Germain and Lady Portia and ask them how you can most effectively assimilate the NEW frequencies of this Divine Gift of the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection. They are standing in readiness awaiting the opportunity to help you utilize this sacred Violet Flame through your unique understanding and your unique abilities. Trust yourself!

If you are not sure how to connect with your I AM Presence it is as simple as saying:

“I AM my I AM Presence and I AM One with the I AM Presence of ALL Humanity, as I AM lifted up ALL Life is being lifted up with me. Now, as One Voice, One Breath, One Heartbeat, and One Energy, Vibration, and Consciousness of Pure Divine Love I invoke Saint Germain and Lady Portia to reveal to me how I can most effectively assimilate and utilize the New frequencies of the 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection through my own unique abilities and my deepest understanding.”

Once that invocation is stated just enter the silence of your heart and remain in a state of Listening Grace. Know that the information you are seeking is being encoded within the Divine Intelligence of your Heart Flame and it will surface into your conscious mind whenever you need it.


Another reason May is considered a mystical month is because during this time of year Mother Mary’s Temple of the Immaculate Heart in the Inner Planes is opened for all Humanity. During the entire month of May our I AM Presence escorts us into Mother Mary’s Temple while we are in our finer body as we sleep at night. This may be a new concept for some of you, but there is no such thing as our Divine Self being unconscious. When our physical body sleeps, our I AM Presence guides a level of our higher consciousness into the Inner Planes where we seek out the schools of learning and the sacred Temples we need most in order to fulfill our Divine Plan. Since our fall from Grace aeons ago, we usually do not remember these experiences. Even though that is true for most people, the lessons we learn while we are asleep are always recorded in our Etheric Body. When we need them, our I AM Presence pushes the lessons to the surface of our conscious mind where they register in subtle but profound ways as an inner knowing.

This year Mother Mary is working closely with Saint Germain and Lady Portia to fulfill the unique facet of the Divine Plan that is unfolding day-by-day in 2016. Mother Mary said that in order for each of us to be able to eventually sustain the New frequencies of the Violet Flame and our 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Light Bodies on our own, the Permanent Seed Atom in every Heart Flame must be strengthened and raised to a higher frequency of vibration. This multidimensional Permanent Seed Atom is the Chalice that cradles the Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame in our heart. The Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame pulsating within every person’s heart consists of the Blue Flame of our Father God’s Divine Power, the Pink Flame of our Mother God’s Divine Love, and the Yellow-gold Flame of Divine Wisdom which reflects the Christ Consciousness of the Sons and Daughters of God.

Mother Mary assures us that as our I AM Presence raises the vibration of our Permanent Seed Atom to a higher frequency of 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Light it will in no way adversely affect the health of our physical heart or body. It will, however, create a Chalice of Light that will be able to express much higher frequencies of our Mother God’s Transfiguring Divine Love, and it will easily sustain the new frequencies of the Violet Flame that Saint Germain and Lady Portia are assisting us with at this time.

Mother Mary revealed that this newly strengthened Chalice of Light will also enable our I AM Presence to accelerate the frequency of our Threefold Heart Flame which will greatly increase the Divine Alchemy taking place within our Earthly Bodies. The Divine Alchemy occurring within our Earthly Bodies is literally transforming our physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies from carbon-based planetary cells into Crystalline-based Solar Light Cells. This is usually a slow process but with the assistance we are receiving from On High we will be experiencing the wonder and bliss of our Crystalline Solar Light Bodies and the New Earth much sooner than we can imagine.

To help you open your heart with receptive and joyous expectation of the Gifts being given to you by Mother Mary throughout the month of May this year, please envision entering her Temple of the Immaculate Heart as you contemplate the following visualization.


While in your finer body your I AM Presence escorts you to Mother Mary’s Temple of the Immaculate Heart in the Inner Planes. As you enter the Temple the luminous Presence of Mother Mary greets you. She embraces you in her loving arms and with her embrace she will awaken within you the remembrance of your sojourn in her sacred Temple prior to this embodiment. You remember now that you came to Earth during this Cosmic Moment with but one desire, to do God’s Will. You understand that you volunteered to be a powerful Instrument of God during this critical time and that you have been training for aeons for this mission. You also remember that you promised to be the full manifestation of Divine Love while serving Humanity and the Light in this embodiment.

With Mother Mary’s assistance, you remember that encoded within your Heart Flame is a portion of the Divine Plan that you chose to bring with you through the veil of physical birth. Mother Mary reminds you of the vow that SHE took to assist you during this wondrous time when your Divine Mission will be fulfilled. Mother Mary helps you remember the capacity you have within your Lifestream to fulfill your Divine Purpose with dignity, honor, and victory.

During the holy month of May, Mother Mary assists your I AM Presence to expand the Chalice of your Immaculate Heart, which cradles your Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame. The expansion of this Chalice allows your Heart Flame to be brought into perfect balance and to sustain higher frequencies of the NEW Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection than you have ever known.

As this occurs, your Heart Flame blazes forth as a great force of Divinity within you Transfiguring your carbon-based bodies into 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Light Bodies. This transformation allows you to be aware of the Presence of God in every cell and atom of your Being. This paves the way for the next phase of the Divine Plan. Now through all levels of Divine Consciousness you affirm:

“I AM the Immaculate Concept of my TRUE God Reality, NOW made manifest and sustained by Divine Grace. And so it is!”


Functioning within the frequencies of your Crystalline Solar Light Bodies, you are now able to consciously magnify the Divinity within yourself and all Life as your up-reaching consciousness magnetizes not only the substance of Divine Love, Healing, Prosperity, Peace, Joy, and Happiness into the world of form, but it also prepares the Earth and Humanity to receive the patterns of perfection for the New Earth that will flow forth from the Realms of Cause when the Portal of Light in Alaska is opened to full breadth in August 2016. These are the exquisite patterns that were previously beyond the comprehension of your finite mind. The patterns that you will now be able to fathom not only as a possibility, but as an imminent reality.

With the assistance that Mother Mary, Saint Germain, and Lady Portia are giving to Humanity during the Mystical Month of May in 2016, these new patterns will be easily recognized and tangibly perceived by an Awakening Humanity. The events in May will further prepare Humanity and Mother Earth to receive the influx of Light that will flood the mental and emotional strata of Earth with previously unknown patterns of perfection for the New Earth when the Portal from the Realms of Cause is opened in August. These patterns will serve as the catalyst that will greatly assist in transforming this blessed planet into the Heaven on Earth she is destined to be.

Your I AM Presence has magnetized this information into your sphere of awareness for a reason. You have been preparing for aeons of time to be an Instrument of God during this facet of the Divine Plan or you would not be reading these words. As this Divine Plan unfolds step-by-step, we will each be in our right and perfect place serving Humanity and the Light in the way that is in alignment with our Heart’s Call. Only your I AM Presence can reveal to you how you will best accomplish your unique facet of this incredible opportunity to add to the Light of the world.

I will share with you how the Company of Heaven has asked us to fulfill our facet of the Divine Plan that will occur in August 2016. Please read the following information carefully and see if this opportunity resonates in your Heart as well. Your Light and Love are needed now!

Know that the more Lightworkers who are physically present for this miraculous Activity of Light that will take place on an Alaskan Cruise, August 13-20, 2016, the more powerful our Chalice of Light will be and the more Light we will be able to transmit into the physical plane of Earth to assist in fulfilling this unprecedented facet of the Divine Plan. Listen to your heart, and ask your I AM Presence to reveal to you how your Divine Presence will most effectively assist in this wondrous opportunity to selflessly serve Humanity and the Light.

All of the Lightworkers who have been prepared to serve in this wondrous way on behalf of Humanity and all Life on this sweet Earth will know who they are through the inner promptings of their Heart. Listen to your Heart, and Trust your inner guidance. KNOW that if you are being guided to be physically present within the Portal of the Realms of Cause in Alaska, then your I AM Presence and the Company of Heaven will assist you in paving the way. This is true whether you need assistance with time, energy, better health, or money to accomplish this facet of your Divine Mission.

In addition to those who are inspired to be physically present, there will be Lightworkers who will join in consciousness from points of Light around the world. These Lightworkers will project the Light flowing through their Heart Flames into the Portal of Light where the Lightworkers are physically gathered in Alaska. Thus our unified efforts will expand a thousand times a thousandfold.


We at the New Age Study of Humanity’s Purpose have been asked by the Company of Heaven to orchestrate the30th Annual World Congress on Illumination which will take place on an Alaskan CruiseAugust 13-20, 2016. This event will be held within the Portal of Light through which the patterns of perfection from the Realms of Cause enter the mental and emotional strata of Earth. This Portal pulsates in all of its resplendent glory in the Ethers above Alaska in the USA.

On this Alaskan Cruise the Lightworkers who are physically present from around the World, will join their Heart Flames and form a transformer of Light, a Holy Grail, through which the Light of God will flow to open this Portal of Light to full breadth. Once that is accomplished, the Company of Heaven has revealed that not only the patterns of perfection from the Realms of Cause that reflect the Divine Love, Eternal Peace, Vibrant Health, Abundance, Bliss, Ecstasy, Wonder, and Awe of the 5th-Dimensional Crystalline New Earth will far more easily flow through the hearts and minds of Humanity into the physical plane, but we will receive patterns of perfection for the New Earth that we have not even been able to fathom with our finite minds.

The 30th WCI will be a wondrous and life-transforming event for all of those who are willing to respond to their Heart’s Call and volunteer to serve as Instruments of God on behalf of our sisters and brothers in the Family of Humanity, and Beloved Mother Earth.

As 2016 unfolds, we will be sharing important information on how this facet of the Divine Plan will be God Victoriously accomplished. Alaska is a wondrous expression of the Nature Kingdom. In the embrace of Alaska’s exquisite beauty, we will easily connect with the patterns of perfection that we will experience once the New Earth is tangibly manifest through the Portal of Light associated with the Realms of Cause.

If you are interested in joining us on this holy endeavor all of the information you will need to participate is posted on our website http://www.eraofpeace.org/wci-2016 .

BEING FULLY PRESENT – Archangel Zadkiel through Linda Robinson

art guardian of the small by denise kester

ART : Guardian of The Small – Denise Kester


May 2016 Message
Event Announcement
Greetings Beloved Ones,
This is Archangel Zadkiel, along with Holy Lady Amethyst, and a Host of the Angelic Realm of Light.  Today, we wish to discuss being fully present.
Being fully present in the moment is very important.  Waves of higher frequency energy are continuing to reach your planet.  This offers you an opportunity to move forward on your ascension path as well as to be of service to humanity and your planet.
When you are fully present, you have your attention in the present moment.  You are not reminiscing about or reviewing the past, nor are you planning for the future.  You are not distracted by what else you could be doing.  You are fully focused on where you are at the moment and what you are doing.  If you are talking to someone, your attention is focused on them and what they are saying.  You are aware of your immediate environment.  You are in the moment.
When you are fully present in the moment, your energy is aligned with the universal vibration.  You are more likely to be attuned to energetic shifts when they occur.  You become more aware of what these shifts may mean for you and adjustments you may wish to make.
For example, you may be aware that you want extra quiet time for yourself, or you may wish to be with family or others of like mind.  You may decide that a goal you have set for yourself needs to be modified or that you wish to devote more time to your spiritual practice.
When you are in the present moment, you pick up on prompts from your inner guidance, and you are in the flow.  You are part of the ebb and flow of the energy, just as the waves of the ocean have a pattern of ebb and flow.  This becomes part of your natural rhythm, and you are in harmony with the Universe.  You realize that you are part of a larger picture, and you feel the oneness and connectedness with All That Is.

When this occurs, you find yourself rising naturally to the next level on your ascension path.

There are several techniques to use to bring yourself back to being fully present.  One way is to focus on the breath.  As you feel the breath going in through the nostrils and then going down into the lungs, you become aware that you are in the present moment.  Then you feel the outbreath travel back up and out of the lungs and then out the nostrils.  After placing your attention on the breath for several cycles of inflow and outflow, you are fully present in the moment.

Another technique for being fully present is to focus completely on what you are doing at that moment.

For example, if you are eating a meal, you are focused on the appearance, aroma, taste, and texture of the food.  You are not thinking about what you did yesterday or what you will do next week.  You are completely focused on your food.  This enables you to enjoy every bite of food and to be relaxed in the present moment.

The more you practice being fully present in the moment, the easier it will become.

As this is occurring, you may become aware of ways in which you can be of service to humanity and the planet.

One of the greatest gifts you can give to humanity and the planet is to hold the space energetically.

When you hold the space, you have aligned your own energy with the vibration of the Universe.  You are centered and are in the present moment.  Your focus turns to thoughts of greatest good for all.  You want everyone to be in the highest and best circumstances.

You are holding the space for those who are experiencing challenging times, such as illness or loss.  You are providing an energetic space for them so that they can work through whatever challenges they are facing.  It does not mean that you try to solve their problems.  It means that you are providing Love and understanding so that they can work through their own situation.

You are also holding the space for the planet by sending it Love.  You are sending thoughts of highest good, gratitude, and understanding.  You are giving thanks for all the support that Mother Earth has provided you, and you are sending her Love for all she continues to do to support the well-being of her inhabitants.

While you are remaining fully present and are holding the space, you may find yourself gaining additional insights about your own ascension path.  You realize that everything is connected.  All is one.  There is no separation.  As this realization occurs, your Light shines brightly for those around you and throughout the dimensions. You are a beacon of Love and Light.

Beloveds, we are happy that you are being fully present in the moment and that you are holding the space.

Know that you are greatly loved.


WE ARE Archangel Zadkiel and Holy Lady Amethyst

Supporting Transformation Cycles

Channeled through Natalie Glasson – 28th April 2016 – Original Source: Sacred School of OmNa

It is with a focus upon high frequencies of transformation that we, Saint Germain and the Andromedans, join our energy and consciousness together to be of service to you.

Have you noticed that with your continued focus upon receiving love, embodying love and expressing love that you are experiencing a constant process of transformation? Love transforms your being by encouraging you to let go of all forms of illusion you are holding onto to reveal the greater light, truth and love within your being. While the letting go of illusion through spiritual practices and physical circumstances can be challenging it is often more challenging to allow yourself to realise the truth arising once the illusion has been dissolved. Often it is the process of embodying the realisations within which can create inner resistance. The easiest way to allow processes of love, transformation, the release of illusions and the gathering of truth to take place is through acceptance and surrendering. When you accept that as a being you are constantly transforming and that transformation is a natural pathway for you then you begin to realise that every experience in your reality is to support your transformation. From a seemingly negative experience to a blissful experience, all are arriving in your reality with divine timing to allow your inner transformation and blossoming to take place. This also encourages you to realise there is a purpose for every situation and experience. It is the same for circumstances worldwide, all are opportunities for humanity to transform, to truly begin to embody love. When you have the focus of receiving, embodying and expressing love, even when you are achieving this it is only a focus or an intention. In order for you to truly embody love there is a need to release that which hinders the love labelled transformation and dissolving illusions. Then the truth which already exists within you will manifest thus the desire for embodiment becomes the experiences of embodiment from the truth within.

Acceptance is a powerful tool as is surrendering. In amidst the process of transformation there are several points when surrendering is required. To begin the transformational process there is a need to surrender to it, then there will come a time when the process of transformation climaxes again inviting you to surrender the shift taking place and the new energies flowing into your being. Finally, you are invited to surrender to the truth which is now more evident than before.

It is a wonderful practice at the end of the day to contemplate the processes of transformation small or large you have experienced that day. With your realisation and conscious acceptance so you can at that moment hold an intention of surrendering to the transformations of the day, those you are aware of and those you are not aware of. This creates further shifts of awakening and truth within your being. The practice encourages you to contemplate and understand the transformations that do take place within your being. It could be as simple as a shift in your mood, a realisation of a habit, commitment to positive affirmations, a meditation you experienced, gaining a positive understanding of yourself or your passions, helping another, participating in earth healing, letting go of judgments and many more simple experiences that occur every day. When you recognise that you are transforming many times a day you begin to see yourself and your reality in a new perspective building your confidence and allowing you to trace your spiritual growth.

It is also important as you realise that you are transforming continuously to take time to inhale and exhale once deeply and consciously. The purpose of this is to remind you of your expansive nature and how filled you are with the rich qualities of the Creator. In a single cycle of breathing you can remind and align yourself with an understanding of your expansion and connection to all aspects of the Creator. Realisations that you are never alone and you are greater than your earthly self will dawn. This is nurturing, rejuvenating and fulfilling. Simply inhale filling yourself with the realisation that you are the expansive Creator and you will notice that your exhale is extremely beautiful and enthused with Creator vibrations.

To support your continuous and often unrealised transformation we wish to make you aware that you can call upon us, Saint Germain and the Andromedans, or in fact any being or consciousness you feel connected to, to achieve specific energetic healing treatments with you. Your body and aura are receptive to physical touch and as well as energetic touch, both can create a process of realignment as well as releasing any stress, imbalance or fatigue created by transformation. All that you are is being bombarded with energy from the universe of the Creator, more than ever before, so there are specific healing treatments which can be of service to you and experienced with a simple request.

The energetic healing treatments available are energetic acupressure, energetic acupressure of the feet, hands, face and head, energetic aromatherapy to heal through the senses, energetic realignment of the spine, energetic digestive support, energetic deliverance of herbs, minerals and vitamins needed by the body, energetic cell rejuvenation, energetic emotional healing, energetic positive reprogramming of the subconscious and energetic massage to support the muscles in absorbing greater light. There are many more energetic treatments available and these are just to name a few which may be useful to you. These treatments are more than the process of transferring energy into your being. Those that you call upon to achieve the treatments with you will subtly work with your body and energy systems to create awakenings and shifts within specific areas of your being. These are precise pro cesses and so we encourage you to only experience one at a time.

Note from Saint Germain: I would encourage you to call upon the Andromedan Healing Team to bring forth the energetic treatment that you feel guided to experience or to simply invite them to achieve the appropriate treatment. I encourage you to call upon their energies as their healing is immensely powerful, their frequency very pure and they have advanced abilities in this field.

Please sit in silence or meditation communing with your soul asking for advice as to whether you require one of these energetic treatments.  If so which is the most appropriate to serve you. If you are still unsure as to the energetic treatment of most benefit for you, then simply hold the intention of experiencing the most appropriate treatment to offer the greatest blissful results and healing within your being.

Please first call upon your guides and angelic team to support and protect you. Please also invite your soul to emanate from your heart chakra to oversee the process.

‘Andromedan Healing Team I invite you to come forth to be present with me emanating your pure unconditional love into every aspect of my being, awakening the unconditional love and truth of my own being. Andromedan Healing Team I call you forth to achieve (treatment……or the most appropriate energetic healing treatment) on my being to support the transformation taking place within all aspects of my being. I am open to receive your support, assistance and guidance now. Please begin the treatment and support me throughout. Thank you.’

Please lay down to receive. Please know you may or may not feel the energetic treatment shared with you by the Andromedan Healing Team. If you are unaware of the process occurring this does not mean that it is not occurring. Please know that you can stop the treatment at any time through a simple request.

We, Saint Germain and the Andromedans are overseeing the transformation of humanity as are many light beings at this time due to the accelerated rate of each person’s transformation process. While your soul and soul group understand the purpose and mission of your transformation it is also a good practice to visualise yourself surrounded in supreme light observing the transformations taking place within you. Visualise or imagine what you wish yourself to transform into, the qualities, abilities, skills and consciousness you wish to emanate from your being. Rather than having specific desires for your transformation each time you visualise let yourself freely explore the different shifts your inner transformation could create. Let yourself be creative and free. The more you participate in this practice with a sense of freedom the more you will be influenced by visions and understanding of the transformation taking place within you. No longer will it be you exploring your desires, it will be you realising the shifts of truth taking place within you.

We, Saint Germain and the Andromedans are present to support your transitions of ascension.

In eternal love,

Saint Germain and the Andromedans

Master Thoth teaches on the Law of Correspondence on Saturday, April 30th, 2016 as we travel to the Sacred Heart Temple of Oneness within 144th dimension in the Commemorative Hall to receive an attunement to assist the Mirror of the Self to be clearer: Getting Physical: Holding to the Universal Law of Correspondence.

I Desire to Be the Mirror of Myself in All that I Am, Do, Relate, and Act Upon ~ Master Thoth

Listening to the Divine Wisdom of your Higher Mind through the Higher Self into your present consciousness is the only communication that should be acknowledged within your world. It is the space of continued energies from the Source of Light that you were born from as a Spirit of Divine Essence. It is a way of living that relates to all references of the God Essence within Love and Faith by allowing Humility to be your guide as your Inner Power will be acknowledged in the presence of the Light that you truly exist within.

This universal law brings up these elements to be acknowledged within your physical consciousness through each thought, feeling, and action that you create within your life. It is the essence of allowing your higher creative process to be part of your physical existence. It is then that your life enfolds in a new and different manner.

This is what we call “Synchronous Living”.

As you learn to “walk your talk” in that what you belief inside of yourself, through your inner power and truth, it ignites into your outside world with a sense of ease and grace with every element that you experience. The important realization is that the journey of the Self will allow you to fully embody your soul and your spirit through the physical reality you have created.

It has taken you many hundreds of lifetimes to realize these truths. You have been side-tracked from the core of your True Self into believing that the truth you believe in lies outside of yourself. It has been part of the programming that has evolved within this planet for eons of time.

Luckily, the earth is at a very pivotal point in which individuals can start to realize that the potential of their living is right within themselves. And, when you can take time to change the inner thoughts and feelings into positive affirmations that is when you are truly aligning with your Inner Truth. It is a moment in time in which you allow the true Spirit of You to become the Physical You. This allows the enfoldment of synchronicity to flow within and out of you in each element that you achieve in your life.

This is what is occurring presently within the Earth as the changes happen through each moment of alignment as there is more to experience than the previous moment. But how do you stay stable in the midst of the storm is the most important question.

Finding your True Self is important to allow the stabilization of your Higher Essence to be acknowledged within you. Events can happen; relationships will change; and there can be loss on the physical level. The important element to remember is WHO YOU ARE. This determines the cause of events for you in each moment whether it is within your own consciousness or outside of yourself with others.

I am not talking about one fleeting moment when something occurs that gives you joy. I am talking about upon waking up each day and each of those moments fit into each other with a flow that is so beautiful it resembles sitting on a raft floating down a stream and you see everything in beauty as it reflects all around you. The raft continues its journey and you enjoy each moment as they flow into the next moment. There is no hesitation or thoughts that tell you it does not feel right within your heart.

You are One with all that is around you.

So many individuals want to choose to have this existence and sometimes they think that they do. Some souls live in a very illusionary state where the world around them seems exactly as they choose it to be but yet when they look inside of themselves there are feelings of regret, insecurity, or deep pain. They may not appear as such in the world around them as it seems better to hide than to truly exhibit the feelings that are not in harmony.

This represents the statement that Your Mirror Image Is Not Of The True Self, it is of the damaged self. The part of you that has lived many timelines and experienced these elements represents the changes that need to be made. They may come in a fleeting moment out of nowhere but yet it feels very real to the psyche. This is because this experience reflects the past and is locked away within the person’s subconscious. The beauty of the subconscious mind is that it is teaching you to look at the issue so that it can be healed. Many individuals do not have the ability to look deeply within as the façade they carry with them reflects the pain they are dealing with.

As we move through 2016, the Universal Laws are going to become essentially important to every person’s existence. Each soul will experience the growth that is necessary to embody the universal laws, and they will become an important element to consider. In fact, each universal law needs to become a mantra for each soul upon this earth so that every step they take in their physical life reflects the spiritual self that is trying to be realized.

Each individual must live with the Universal Laws as if they already know what they are. But when you read the words of the law, what do you feel inside of your self.

Do you have a reflection of what it may mean for you in your present circumstances or your life?

Do you see why you have gone through a series of challenges and maybe if you paid closer attention to each moment you are experiencing, then you could see where the problem may lie within your mental and emotional experiences?

These are all important elements to consider, as the Universal Laws must become personal for each person in order to achieve mastery and accept the challenges they are going through as part of their own Divine Plan through their Higher Self, and not the result of others creating the problems.

The Law of Correspondence creates these thoughts to become a reality within a person. The statement of As Above, So Below is something that has been written in many spiritual texts for centuries. But what does that mean for you? How can you change your reality by realizing that you are more of a Spiritual Being than a physical one?

The reason this planet and all of humanity is struggling represents these questions that I pose to you. Each person needs to take responsibility for his or her own reality through the emotional and mental bodies so that the world can be Heaven on Earth. Until each soul takes that step into their own personal evolution the earth is going to still be in conflict.

So that is why we take the time as Masters to work with each of you so that you can remember all that you know and how to apply it to your present life circumstance. It is not your fault that you have forgotten but it is time for every soul to try to remember. So the burden falls upon each Lightworker, as the Awakened Ones, to hold their own higher essence within their physical body. In order for each of you to walk as masters you must walk in the shoes of all that you have been before. This is an important fact that needs to be addressed.

Your Etheric body holds the frequency of the good and bad that you have been. In order for your physical self to hold the Light frequency, the healing must occur within the Etheric level. All timelines and thought processes that you have is being held in this level. So it is imperative to clear as much as you can as it will make a difference in creating the New Earth.

So how do you create it?

Each of you mirror everything that you have ever been within your own sub-conscious thoughts which trigger the emotions. It is imperative to take the time and understand that when the thought comes to you, how you feel about it in your personal reaction.

What happens to you in this process? Are you relating to your Higher Self or is it your physical self?

This is an important consideration because when you access your Divine Mind, the higher part of your existence, then you allow that Mirror of your I Am Presence to be revealed within your physical body. When you are accessing the lower self through the physical mind, then you are putting that energy back into the Universe. So it will come back to you time and time again until your rectify the energy through accessing your Higher Heart and Higher Mind.

This is the Law of Correspondence – as the line of communication from the lower mind will travel through the dimensions unto your I Am presence of the 144th dimension. The I Am or the Monad or the Higher Self receives it. There becomes a realization that this transference of energy does not reflect the Higher Essence. So then this energy sends another communication to you of similar energies – the lower energies do not stay within the Higher Essence but are returned to you to revisit the same frequency. This is why you can be overwhelmed with an emotion or situation you are dealing with. Instead of calling upon your Higher Essence to assist in a resolution, your lower energies are being sent out and returned back to you.

This is a constant motion that occurs in each situation of your life.

So when you realize that change has to occur from your Higher Essence into the physical essence that is when you start to feel calm, peaceful, and loved. You finally allow your vehicle on this Earth to receive what it deserves. Then there is the movement of healing that is created.

It becomes an endless cycle until the initiate can take responsibility for themselves and realize that the reality they are experiencing is due to their ability to move through the challenge.

This is why this earth is so programmed as it was deemed appropriate eons ago that there would not be any remembrance for each soul until he or she could step into the power of their own will to be acknowledged within themselves.

So at this time of great change, it is your responsibility, as the Awakened Ones, the Initiate, the Student to step forward and allow the healing of our Inner Self to become the Outer Self. Each soul upon this planet must take this responsibility. If you think you are completely clear and do not need to address this law to your personal life, then look at your outward circumstances.

The Inner Reflects the Outer Self ~ Synchronization Occurs through this act.

This statement reflects each moment of your day, your night, and all realities coming into Oneness. The more souls that utilize this law the easier it will become upon this earth as the dark energies will no longer be able to exist in this higher frequency.

Take time to realize your thoughts and actions, your conversations, and realizations as they mold who you are in any given moment. Every soul has to go through this process; it is part of learning to be a master. The journey can be challenging to constantly know who you are and allow the Mirror of Your Higher Essence to guide you in each moment. The rewards will come to those that are able to uphold this creative process within all parts of their reality through the Physical, Etheric, Emotional, and Mental bodies.

This will then change the frequency of this Earth to move into the higher dimensional light. The challenge is being honest with yourself and realize the potential you have to create change inside and around you.

I walk with you every step of the way through this process.

I Am Master Thoth

Join us for our monthly talk with Master Thoth on the Law of Correspondence, Saturday, April 30th, 2016 at 12:30 PM Pacific as we travel to the Sacred Heart Temple of Oneness within 144th dimension in the Commemorative Hall which is a meeting place for many masters of the Unified Whole Command. Included is an attunement to reflect the Mirror Image of our Divine Self into our Physical Being. Details are available via Getting Physical: Holding to the Universal Law of Correspondence.

Siddhis and the Powers of Consciousness

by Tom Kenyon

My first encounter with yogic powers was in my early twenties. I had gone to Atlanta with some friends for a rock festival and we had slipped into some shops on Peach Street. This was the late sixties and although the flower era had ended in San Francisco, it had just caught up with Atlanta. Day-glow colored buildings, tie-dyed shirts and psychedelic rock abounded.

One of my compatriots wanted to check out a really weird shop with clouds of incense that would shame any Catholic church. At the time, the music sounded really, really strange to this southern boy from Virginia. The music? Sitars. The shelves were filled with books about yoga and other exotic things. Then, as we were leaving, my eyes caught a book entitled Autobiography of a Yogi by Parmahansa Yogannanda. A photo of him adorned the cover; our eyes met and the world instantly changed. I stood transfixed and was unable to move. It was like I was suddenly transported into a dream, those strange dreams where you can’t move.

My friend called out to me as he started to leave. I turned around in really, really slow motion. And it seemed that the book was pulling at me, drawing me over to its shelf. With extraordinary will power, I forced myself away from the book and pulled myself out of the shop. Only when I had gotten out the door and onto the street did the strange powers of the book stop affecting me.

I did not know it at the time, for I had no context for such an experience, but I had experienced yogic power first hand. When I finally read the book, a few years later, I understood the strange affect it had on me.

Reading Yogannanda’s words activated memories from my many past lives in India, and they reconnected me with one of my primary spiritual lineages. His yogic powers (siddhis) were considerable and everything he touched or wrote carried some of his energy. This is a typical trait, I later discovered, of all accomplished yogis and yoginis (women yogis), as well as certain saints and mystics.

The siddhis or yogic powers are not limited to yogis or yoginis, however. There are many well-documented cases of Buddhist, Christian, Islamic, Jewish and Taoists saints and mystics who have attained the siddhis as well. In addition, it is well known among indigenous cultures that shamans often exhibit such powers as well.

Several years ago, I had an experience with the siddhis of a mystic in one of the most unlikely places on earth–Kodiak, Alaska.

I had been invited to teach a series of workshops in Anchorage and the following weekend I taught a workshop on Kodiak Island. After the final workshop on the island, I had a few days off. My organizer gave me a few options, and I chose the boat ride to a small island inhabited by Russian Orthodox monks where an Orthodox saint had lived. I was told that visitors more often than not, had to turn back due to rough seas. In fact, I was told the prelates of the Church in charge of the monastery had never been able to see it, as every time they went for a visit, high seas forced them back.

This was a source of immense humor among the native peoples.

We took a small airplane ride to a nearby island and landed on a spit of land that ended abruptly into turbulent and frigid waters. We were greeted by a local fisherman’s wife driving a pickup truck, and I hopped in the back of the Ford. My organizer got in the front.

It was summer, but there was a light snowfall as we headed for her house by the sea. I remember feeling quite cold and wondering how in the hell people survived here in the winter. We pulled up to a small house surrounded by cedar trees and went inside. Sitting by a large wooden table we sipped tea. Now anyone who has been to northern Alaska knows that time is a strange bird in these parts. We just sat and sat, talking a little here and there, waiting it seemed for some opportune time to leave. Finally, our host announced that it was time to go, and we piled back into the Ford pickup, and headed for the dock where her husband was waiting with a fishing trawler.

We took off across an amazingly placid sea. Our host sat next to a boom, knitting, and commented how unusual it was to have such a calm passing. I sat looking out at the rich unbelievably beautiful landscape of the neighboring islands as our boat chugged along at a fairly crisp pace. Seals followed us part way.

Passing an outcropping of boulders, we came into a small natural harbor. The water was too shallow for the trawler, so we got into a dinghy and headed to shore. The scene was like something out of the Middle Ages. A group of men were on the beach burning brush, the air thick with billows of white smoke which swirled in eddies against a stark blue sky. The monks wore long beards, typical of Russian and Greek Orthodox clerics, and they were wearing long grey robes with thin ropes tied about the waist. Each one of them also wore a crucifix.

Stepping out of the boat onto the sand, we were greeted by someone who appeared to be in his early thirties and had the air of authority about him. Our host explained that I had come from Washington State to visit. The Abbott smiled approvingly and proceeded to take us on a tour of the small monastery, which consisted of perhaps a dozen men or so. As we headed up a path into the shade of cedars, he noted that the monastery did not often get to host pilgrims.

He took us to several spots including the small hut where the saint lived. I recall the air being musty from the old manuscripts and pictures of icons that had been in the saint’s possession. But there was also an unmistakable sense of serenity. The Abbott also took us to a sacred spring reputed to have healing powers. Finally he took us to the small chapel where the saint had been previously buried. His body had since been removed, but the site was still considered holy.

The Abbott caught me staring at a corner of the chapel. He asked me what I was seeing, and I said I was seeing a column of white light coming out of the floor and going up through the roof. The Abbott seemed to smile a bit and said that the saint had been buried in that corner of the church. Then he said something in a somewhat dreamy voice as if he were part way into another world, I remember his words because they sounded so odd to me at the time, “would that we were all so sensitive.”

Seeming to rouse himself from his reveries, the Abbott said, “There is one more thing I would like to show you.”

He guided us back down the hill to a very small chapel that had obviously just recently been built. It was quite unusual in that it was perhaps nine feet square and some twenty feet tall. The inside of the building glowed from the gold pigments of recently painted icons. They depicted the life of Saints along with other prominent figures of the Russian Orthodox Church. In the back of the chapel there was a very small altar with a Bible in Russian.

The Abbott pointed out the various icons and their meanings and then said that the tour had come to an end. He motioned us out of the chapel and closed the door behind us. I remember suddenly having a question about mysticism I thought the Abbott might be able to clarify. I knocked at the door, but there was no answer. I knocked again, still no sign of anyone inside.

Gingerly I opened the door to find the chapel completely empty. For a moment I stood in shock. Then my ever-skeptical mind came in, and I began to search for trap doors or other entrances. I even picked up the small frayed rug on the floor to see if there was a secret exit. Nothing.

Still in a kind of shock, I wandered out the door and on to the beach where our party was waiting. There, clearly in view was the Abbott. He was talking to my host, and as I stepped up he nodded his head with a distinct twinkle in his eyes. We boarded the dinghy and headed back to trawler. The sun was low in sky, and I stood on the deck looking over the stern as we headed back into the sea. I was very quiet.

As I write these words I am caught up in the feelings of awe and wonder I felt then. I had known the siddhis existed, had studied the physics of them, and had made it a hobby of mine to collect stories and documentations. But here on a small island off Kodiak, a humble contemplative had shown me the mystery of yogic powers firsthand.

Halfway through the ride back, the fisherman’s wife turned from her knitting and said, “You know, they do things like that all the time!”

“Things like what, I asked?”

“Oh, you know, teleporting, bilocating… things like that.”

“Really,” I said.

“Yes,” she replied, not taking her eyes off her knitting. “That island is a remote place. There is no mail service. We see them sometimes in town picking up their mail and buying things. And…” she said in a most conspiratorial tone, “they don’t have any way of getting there!”

The powers of consciousness, or siddhis, range from what are called the lesser siddhis to what are termed the greater siddhis. The lesser siddhis include such psychic abilities as clairvoyance (inner seeing), clairaudience (inner hearing), clairsentience (inner feeling), as well as clairgnosis (inner knowing), as in knowing something, but not knowing how you know it. The first three, clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience, are refinements of the physical senses.

As psychic powers unfold, they often tend to present themselves in one of these three forms, or in combination. Thus one might begin to see things in the mind’s eye that can’t be physically seen. These visual impressions manifest as a subtle sense of seeing something that cannot be seen physically (i.e., auras, guides, etc.). In scientific studies involving remote viewing, this siddhi is most often used.

Studies show that persons can, under the right conditions (i.e. mental relaxation), accurately report visual impressions of objects or locations hundreds of miles away with no previous knowledge of them. The reception of such visual information must presumably come from some other source than that of physical sight since the viewers were nowhere near the locations they described.

Many yogis/yoginis, saints and mystics have reported that they could often see their disciples in distant locations when it was called for. In one account, the yogi Neem Karoli Baba suddenly asked for large amounts of food to be brought to him. Those present report that he consumed a mind-boggling amount of food before going into samadhi (yogic meditation). When the yogi came out of meditation, his disciples asked him what had happened. He reported that he had suddenly seen one of his disciples dying in the desert. The last desire of the dying man was to eat. Baba said that the student had reached a level of attainment where there was no further need to reincarnate. But with the desire for food on his mind, he would have been brought back into the wheel of birth and death merely through the power of this one unfulfilled desire! Baba had taken upon himself the task of fulfilling the man’s last wish for food, and using his yogic powers, he transmuted the desire.

When psychic information is received auditorially, the person is called clairaudient. Such persons have subtle impressions of hearing sounds and/or voices. The inner realms of consciousness are filled with sounds and music that are incredibly beautiful. It has been suggested by some that many of the great composers actually heard the music of these realms and that this music of the spheres greatly influenced their compositions.

Some individuals feel things at a very subtle level and these persons are called clairsentients. There is often a fine line between a clairsentient and an empath. Empaths have highly developed sensitivities and often feel other people’s feelings, especially those around them. Clairsentients may also be empathic, but in addition, they receive psychic impressions in the form of subtle feelings, which are often physical

Clairgnosis is one of the more fascinating siddhis. When you have a hunch about something, but have no idea how you might know such a thing, this is clairgnosis. (That is, if your hunch turns out to be true. If it turns out to be false, we call that delusion.) Some have suggested that clairgnosis is an attribute of pure consciousness which is omniscient and omnipresent. As one rises higher up the ladder of consciousness, one’s own personal awareness takes on some of these qualities and episodes of clairgnosis increase.

The lesser siddhis also include such things as healing abilities and limited powers of prophecy. This class of yogic powers also includes the ability for awareness to become very small or very large, in other words, not confined by the limitations of the body.

The greater siddhis include such things as levitation (in which the body floats or hovers in air). Again this siddhi is not confined to Indian yogis or yoginis as some believe. There are well-documented sightings of St. Francis of Assisi, for one, hovering in the air. St. Francis exhibited other siddhis as well. In fact, his physical remains have spiritual powers even after his death. While visiting his shrine in Assisi, I was transported into the spiritual realms through the emanations from his crypt! I heard a sound like wind blowing through Aspen trees whenever I stood near his body, and when I returned to my hotel room my skin was red, as if I had a mild sunburn.

By the way, if you are ever at Assisi, here’s a little tip. As you enter the main entrance into the Basilica where St. Francis’s remains are kept, turn to your left. Off to both sides there will be stairs that lead down to the crypt, and it is certainly worth visiting. The problem is that there are usually throngs of people milling about, and it is difficult to find a quiet space. If you proceed further, though, on the main floor, past the stairs, you will see a large altar in the distance. It is the only altar in this part of the church. On the floor, in front of the altar, there is a geometric figure. It sits directly above St. Francis’s tomb, and the emanations from this area are very strong. No one seems to know about it, so you can stand directly on the spot and receive the emanations in relative peace.

The greater siddhis also include such remarkable abilities such as teleportation (like the Abbott I mentioned earlier) and bi-location (being in two places at once). There are other abilities that fall under this category, but they are too numerous to list here.

Siddhis or yogic powers are attained as a natural consequence of spiritual development. There is, however, a very real dilemma with the siddhis. If not tempered with wisdom, the premature attainment of yogic powers can lead to karmic entanglements.

A short anecdote about a well-known yogi may help to make this clear.

He is quite an extraordinary being, and many years ago, I had the wonderful experience of studying with him during a weeklong retreat. According to a close disciple of his, whom I came to know, the yogi had gone to India for a spiritual retreat in his early twenties, having attained some of the siddhis. He was resting against a tree listening to the beautiful music of a master musician who was caught up in the fervor of bhakti (Divine Love), and due to the intensity of devotion within the music, our yogi was transported into a deep state of samadhi and experienced great ecstasies and bliss.

The concert abruptly ended when it started to rain and the musician rushed indoors. Using his siddhic powers, the yogi caused the rain to stop, and the musician returned to his kirtans (sacred singing). Very quickly our yogi was transported back into samadhi, but his bliss was rudely ended by an old man kicking him in the side. The man was also a yogi, and in a furor he continued to kick the younger yogi, yelling obscenities at him.

“What are you doing?” he asked. “Don’t you realize this area has been suffering from a drought? And you, you stopped the rains for your own selfish desires.” The ancient yogi raised his staff in the air and pointed it at his younger peer. “Mark my words, if you don’t stop this, you will pay a great karmic debt. You will spend a thousand lifetimes as a sea creature!” The old yogi then kicked some dust in the direction of the young man and left before he could respond.

Immediately the younger yogi went into meditation and through his siddhic powers returned the rains. He fervently prayed to God to take away his siddhis, and miraculously they left him. But over the years they slowly returned to a much wiser and less flamboyant man.

Generally speaking, the siddhis are looked upon, by most people, as being more magical and exotic than practical. Part of this is due, no doubt, to a pervasive misunderstanding about their place among other human abilities, such as the ability to reason and to make language, both of which we take for granted.

The siddhis are inherent human abilities, but they only show up when consciousness has reached a certain level of development. When this level has been attained, the siddhis or yogic powers, spontaneously appear. They are like fruits on a tree.

Although one may have an apple tree in one’s yard, only when it has reached a certain level of maturity and development is it capable of manifesting the fruits of its nature. This is also true of the powers of consciousness. We all possess them, in potential, but not all of us will demonstrate them in actuality.

As one looks at the various internal alchemies of the world, they all have their own version of the siddhis and views on how to attain them. Traditionally, this knowledge has been kept secret, and only those admitted to these esoteric schools or spiritual lineages have been given access to the technology of self-evolution.

Personally, I believe that knowledge of the siddhis is a human birthright, and this technology for the acceleration of self-evolution should be made as widely available as possible.

As I said earlier, the siddhis are a natural expression of human evolution. They unfold as a consequence of spiritual growth and they are, I believe, one of our next evolutionary benchmarks. The greater siddhis (such as levitation, bi-location and teleportation) rarely manifest except in the advanced stages of spiritual development. The lesser siddhis, however, can develop quite quickly. The development of these lesser siddhis, has a generally enhancing effect on creativity and intelligence. And, for this reason alone, they are well worth exploring.

Recently, there have been reports from around the world about some children possessing extraordinary powers. These children are not undergoing years of rigorous yogic training. They are, in fact, spontaneously demonstrating the siddhis. This points to the fact, I believe, that the siddhis are a natural part of human evolution, albeit unusual.

If the Bell Curve formula of evolution applies here as it does to most other evolutionary situations, these children are at the forefront of the human race in terms of mental abilities. As time moves forward, their numbers will presumably grow until the majority of mankind possesses these inherent powers of consciousness.

As I wrote that last sentence, I remembered the Mayan calendar and its prediction regarding the powers of consciousness. According to some translations of the Mayan prophesies, at the year 2012A.D. we will depart from the Age of the Intellect and time, as we know it. If they are correct, we will pass through a collective planetary portal on that date and enter the Age of the Gods.

Indeed, if the majority of humanity reaches the level of attaining siddhic powers, we would be very much in the Age of the Gods. Only time will tell if the Mayan prophecies are correct in this regard. In point of fact, it would not take a majority of humanity to express the siddhis in order to usher in a new Age of the Gods. It would only take a small percentage of individuals to tip the scales, so to speak.

Those of us engaged in spiritual practices to accelerate personal evolution are, I believe, making a tangible contribution to the future destiny of this world. Consciousness has a subtle, yet potent affect upon the environment. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated this.

I am thinking, in particular, about experiments on the effects of prayer conducted by Larry Dossey, M.D. There have also been extensive studies conducted by Maharishi International University on the effects of the siddhis on the environment. Specifically, when a group of individuals enters a high state of coherency, as in yogic meditation, there are distinct positive influences on the environment. These include such things as increased wellness of the individuals, decreased psychological stress and a decrease in crime. This is very interesting stuff. It shows that we don’t live in a vacuum, that our thoughts and experiences have measurable effects on the world around us.

One reason I wrote this article is to bring the concept of the siddhis to a larger audience outside the traditional yogic circles. My motivation for this? I believe that more and more of us are experiencing spontaneous arisings of the siddhis, especially the lesser siddhis. I am already seeing this happen, and suspect there will be an even greater increase as we pass through the next ten years. Knowing that they are a natural part of spiritual evolution may, perhaps, make it easier for you to accept them when they arise.

In closing, I would like to address a couple of ideas in regards to the siddhis. The first is what I call the myth of happiness. The delusion here is that by developing yogic powers we will be happy. In point of fact, these powers have very little to do with happiness. They are simply expressions of consciousness and its inherent abilities, like, for instance, the ability to speak.

Talking does not, necessarily produce happiness. It can just as easily produce conflict. It’s what we say to ourselves and to each other that determines whether it is a contribution or a distraction to our happiness. The same is true for the siddhis or yogic powers. It’s what we do with them that counts. If you think that your problems will magically disappear as a result of cultivating the powers of consciousness you will be sorely disappointed. But if your consciousness gets stronger, you certainly have the possibility of making better and more creative choices for yourself. This is, I believe, one of the major benefits for cultivating the powers of consciousness.

The second point concerns spiritual enlightenment. Attaining yogic powers does not necessarily mean that one is enlightened, or even spiritually mature. It simply means that these powers are manifesting due to either cultivation or spontaneous unfoldment.

Don’t, in other words, be mesmerized by those who demonstrate such powers, and don’t delude yourself when they start showing up in you.

Spiritual attainment often causes the siddhis to spontaneously manifest. A quick look at the lives of saints throughout the world will demonstrate this quite clearly. Virtually every saint in history has demonstrated some of these non-ordinary powers. But the presence of these powers does not necessarily mean that the person possessing them is illuminated.

I believe that those of us working with spiritual technologies need to understand the potential of what we are dealing with. And I believe that we would be well advised to enter this mysterious realm of human potential with the three jewels of wisdom, compassion and humor. Yes… humor. Seriousness is, after all, the death-knell to liberating spirituality.

On that note, I will leave you with this final thought…

What did the Buddhist monk say to the hot dog vendor?

“Make me one with everything!”
