Steve Beckow: Good evening Linda – our ‘soon to be author’ of the book of Jesus’s messages through the years with you. How’s it coming?
Linda Dillon: It’s coming very well, Steve. Hi and good evening everybody. I am in the final stages of the comma’s and the punctuations and making sure the spelling is correct, and then I hand it over for design, and that’s it. It’s done!
SB: Well, are you relieved?
LD: I am over the top relieved, happy, overwhelmed, and teary especially in reading the channelings as they flow and come together on various subjects, it’s just so heartwarming and you know, there is only one message and that is love. And boy, when you keep reading it and reading it, and feeling the energy downloads, it’s just fabulous!
SB: Well, I have to tell you that you’ve inspired me watching you writing your new book, I turned around and massively updated a book on financial wayshowing in the last two or three days. So, thank you for inspiring me.
LD: Oh, you’re welcome. Now, when will it be available?
SB: How about this afternoon? Of course my books are all e-books and they are very easy to put together. Going with paper is a lot more work.
LD: You are amazing!
SB: Does this mean that you are going to get to sleep through the night?
LD: No. No, as I was just mentioning to Suzy before the show, we have St. Germaine with us today and somewhere around 2:00 or 3:00 he woke me up and started talking, so it’s just on to the next one.
SB: That’s right. Do you want me to take him to task?
LD: Let me put it this way – I would pay big money for a really good night’s sleep. (Laughter)
It’s okay, I mean I understand how lucky I am and how many of our listeners would pay that big money to have St. Germaine or Jesus or anybody wake them up in the middle of the night for a chat. So I count my blessings.
SB: Yes, indeed. You are blessed. Well, why don’t I let you make your transition and while you’re doing that, I don’t think there’s anybody in the audience who doesn’t know St. Germaine. He appeared and disappeared throughout European history for centuries, affecting the histories of France, Russia, various other countries. He appeared in Turkey, and he had a life in Tibet.
And of course, we know him as the leading light of the St. Germaine World Trust, along with some of the ascended masters. And always with a tremendous sense of humor, gaiety and frivolity and teaching through things that appeared to his contemporaries to be magic and through humor. So I’m delighted to welcome St. Germaine back to the program.
St. Germaine: And welcome to you, my beloved brother, and to all of you, my brothers and sisters. I am St. Germaine and it is my honor and my pleasure and my delight to meet with you this night and to meet with you any time, anywhere, in any kind of situation. It does not need to be in the darkness, the silence, the night, it can be in the boisterousness of the bubble of the city, or the delight of a pub, or the busy streets, or when you sit, my friends, in anguish, because anguish comes and goes.
But what I say to you, what I say to you this day and always, is that it is time for anguish, for sorrow, for grief to be a thing of the past. Yes, there will be moments when you glance at a situation – the passing of a friend, of a loved one, be it a dog, a cat, a partner, or a parent, and your heart will say, “I miss you.” But at the same time it will also say, “I love you and thank you for sharing this journey with me.”
I have existed as Gaian, as Earthling, for thousands of years on and off, seen and unseen. I know what it is to walk this beautiful planet. And, my friends, I know what it is to seek ascension, to seek enlightenment, to walk the journey of awakening, and that is what I come to speak to you about this night, because it is time, sweet brothers and sisters, simply for the next step.
I wish to speak to you about surrender. So often you hear us say – whether it is our beloved Mother or Michael or Yeshua or Sanat Kumara, dear Raj – you hear us say ‘surrender’ and you think, “I’m trying. I’m doing it. I surrendered twenty two times and now you tell me to surrender some more?”
And there is a part of you that gets a little frustrated and then there is another part of you that is saying, “What the heck, what in the blazes do they mean?”…because this is one of the most loaded terms that you will come across.
And here I am yet again to discuss this issue, this process, this undertaking, this monumental undertaking of surrender. So, I want to be your practical guide. I want to be your friend that has walked this planet, who understands the challenges, the hardships, the opportunities, the golden openings that are available to you right now.
And while surrender is one of your next steps, I would like to also suggest to you that it has never been easier. You are being flooded, not only by the Violet Flame, not only by the I AM Presence, not only by the gold, the blue, the red, the pink rays, the legions of light, the Company of Heaven, the Council of Love. You are being washed and cleansed and raised up to a frequency that you have never known. And yes, your job is to sit, to stand, to lie down and simply allow this to happen. But in that allowance is this issue, this process of surrender, and it was one of the biggest and final steps that I undertook in my journey.
So, I speak to you as fellow journeyman, as pathfinder, as wayshower. Surrender does not mean absenting yourself from life. What you are being requested to do is to be the participant and the observer and in many ways in this new realm, this new paradigm of existence that we have spoken to each of you about before, and that many of you are experiencing as you fly back and forth through the portal in this new way, and it is brand new to you because it has not been fully available to humanity.
But you are being requested to be the observer and the participant, to be the leaders, the wayshowers, the stewards of new time, of new reality, of Nova Earth and Nova Being, and to be the observer of the old as you insert or ascend your frequency or vibration – which is only love – back into the situations that are still in the midst of chaos.
So at the same time, in surrender, what you are doing is being the beacon, the transmitter, the vibratory tuning fork, the observer, but your vibration is your participation. So you are both the observer and the participant at the same time, completely outside of judgment.
You can look at it. You can see the turmoil, the chaos, the reluctance, the disinterest in what is going on in your reality, in your world, and yet you can also see the process of change. You are doing that and then at the same time, you are also participating and observing in the reality of building a new realm based on the divine qualities.
Now, you are vigilant and you are absent at the same time. Now this is difficult for many of you to get your head around, and yes, I am not just talking about your heart consciousness, I am talking about your mental, emotional body and even addressing your egos as we speak, because this part of you, the mental, emotional, ego, wants to not only understand, but still be in charge. And in the new realm of existence that is simply not the way to proceed; you can’t do it, otherwise you are thrusting yourself back into the non-existent realm of the old third dimension.
So often you say, “How do we progress – 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 12th?” You progress by surrender. And what surrender means is the being present and being the observer, of being the participant and knowing when to be perfectly still and not participate. This is hard and in the old way many, including myself, absented themselves from what you can think of as the busyness of society. And it did not matter whether it was the court of the King of France, or New York City in this day, people will absent themselves from the hubbub in order to achieve this sense of being fully present in themselves and in the higher realms; but also to be quiet and be in the silence of existence in unity with One.
But that is not what is being asked of you. Yes, what is transpiring, do not forget – I will say in an aside here – do not forget, do not overlook that this entire journey of your life, each and every one of you my beloved friends and family, this life is about ascension. This life is about the fulfillment of the Mother’s Plan, the anchoring and the renewal of love upon the planet. Not in some esoteric, religious manner, but in your everyday life, in your actions, in your thoughts, in your behaviors, in your interactions, in your relationships, in your structures, in your institutions, in your societies, in your nations and in your body.
So, are there many distractions? Is there a great deal of both the pot boiling over and simmering on the back burner? Yes. Ignore it. Look at it, perhaps turn the burner down, remove the pot, and then ignore it because that is not what you are here for. You are here to surrender to your love, to the love and to your love, and you do that by being vigilant as participant and observer of yourself to start with.
Now you will receive and see and witness and observe many distractions, many situations that do not feel or look like love and they can frustrate you and they can aggravate you and they can even anger you. And what do you do? You surrender to the divine and you surrender to yourself and the truth of who you are, and you come back to the love.
Now, this is difficult when you are seeing situations – and there are so many upon the planet right now – that not only look like but that are cruel and unjust and unfair and unloving and uncaring and unkind and inconsiderate. And you say to me, “Well St. Germaine, I can’t just stand back and let that happen.”
My friends, that is not what I am saying; what I am saying is don’t get mixed up in that whirlwind, don’t get mixed up in those tornados. Stand back. Your participant self is to send the energy, to inject the energy, to send it across the air, the light and the sound waves into the situation, but not to drag yourself down by putting yourself into those situations.
Now, many of you are thinking, “Oh, I know exactly what he is talking about, I know he is talking about the political situation, I know he is talking about the deaths in Orlando or in Dallas or the multitude of shootings and death that occur in the wars across the nations.” Yes, I’m talking about that but I am also talking about the friction that you will feel with friends or family or the person down the street who murders or hits their spouse or children or their dog.
I am talking about the unkindness in the line in the supermarket. I am talking about the breadth of chaos. And you say to me, “Well St. Germaine, isn’t it more important that we send love and energy to a situation in Dallas or Syria? Is that not more important in terms of anchoring peace?”
My beloved friends – the peace that’s within you – that is the starting and finishing point of surrender, of balance, of stewardship. It is to be fully in the now and not in the now at all. It is just as important that an atrocity against one person that is within your sphere – what you can think of as your immediate environment as your community – that level of brutality or injustice or cruelty is just as important as sending energy to Syria. Do not assign greater value because the magnitude of the issue seems greater.
When you help or heal or address injustice, whether it is next door or two miles away, you are doing it for all those people who are suffering and who believe themselves alone, abandoned and hurt. And what about those who are not being hurt or maimed or killed or treated unfairly? What about those who are simply unaware, who act with a sense of entitlement, who proceed with a sense of simply being in the chaos, who seem uncaring, unkind, inconsiderate?
They are important because they are those that Michael has talked about being on the fence. They are not completely recalcitrant, but they are certainly not through the portal. When you address your energies to them, what you are doing is giving them a nudge off the fence and when your intentions and your love is matched with ours and the entire legions that are now flooding the human race, what you are saying is, “I agree. I want the change, I surrender to the change, I agree with the change, I am creating the change, I am participating in the change.”
Because beloved friends, without you, without you who are the lightworkers and the wayshowers, the pathfinders, the teachers, the healers, the channels, it doesn’t happen.
I have told you I am Master of the Violet Flame and I am on this side, and for the time being I’m not going anywhere. So, who will do it? Who will be the anchors of Nova Earth if it is not you, if you do not surrender to who you are, to your mission and purpose? And in that – teach: by mentoring, by role modeling, by simply vibrating with the truth of who you are. We are relying on you just the same way you are relying on us, and there is a point at which there is enough surrender and light that we fully proceed together.
Now, let me stop there because Steve, I feel you…you are itching to get a word in.
SB: Busting, yes. It’s very interesting that you’re talking about this subject and…but before I get into why it’s interesting, I need to point out to listeners that a short while ago in my reading, Archangel Michael said to me that it was time to let go and surrender. And in a recent article I say that he’s saying this to everyone. He’s not just saying it to me. So, here you are now amplifying the message and making the point that this is not just said to one person but this is a much more general message.
But what I wanted to talk about is, I went downtown yesterday and for some reason on this day so many people were breaking the rules; they were entering the bus by the back door, they were jumping lines, they were standing in my way in front of the subway so I could not get off the subway without asking them to stand aside, and just all over the place. It was almost like this nice, kind society that I’ve been living up to until now started to disintegrate or something, and it was very hard to surrender. I got very annoyed. I became part of the problem I’m sure and so I’m very much interested in what you’re saying.
I acted like the policeman of the world rather than the person surrendering. So, I’m listening to what you are saying very acutely and just fascinated with you bringing up this topic at this time. First of all, is there a breakdown of some kind of social order? And then, secondly, if there is, then why? Is it because of the energies forcing all this up?
St. Germaine: It is because of the energies, but let us even back up a little more…people breaking the rules! You’re darn right they are, because the level of feeling penetrated by energies and vibratory rates, frequencies that they don’t understand…think of it as people are crumbling and the more they are crumbling, they are reverting to assertive, aggressive, the nastiness – let’s call it what it is – that has been within them.
The façade, because that is what it is…there has been a façade of civility, civilization. What has been civil about your old third-dimensional reality? It has been based on lies, on greed and lust and untruth, I could go on and on, but it was civil enough that everyone more or less complied.
So you could have murder and mayhem and chaos and aggression, but it was alright because you could at least have your place on the subway. It was never alright. It never worked. But because you all agreed that the emperor was wearing lovely clothes no one said ‘boo.’ Now, is there civil unrest and disorder? Yes. Is it all breaking down? Yes, because it is essential, essential not just desirable, critical that people come to realize that that old paradigm that is simply vapors, never worked.
You have a saying that you get more bees with honey than vinegar. People are needing to realize that this level of brutality, whether it is pushing on a bus, or cheating on a bus, or committing murder in Syria, is unacceptable. And the reason that it becomes unacceptable in both the macro and the micro levels is that it doesn’t feel good. It is abrasive. It’s not the kind of society that any of you want to live in.
But unless you see the example as the observer in your society, then the reasons for wanting it to change do not emerge, so that the society that is based on equality and freedom and mutuality and respect and unity does not emerge. So what you are doing collectively is getting a first-hand experience of what the lack of love looks and feels like yet again.
Now, the Mother and many of us have spoken about how to be in human form. Other than when you are in the state of bliss or ecstasy in your day-to-day walkabout, you experience love as an expression and an experience. When that disappears, when one can’t find it in the everyday life, the recognition comes forth…there is something desperately wrong.
Now, it does not mean to armor up with aggression and weapons and nastiness. It means step back, surrender to the truth, be that vigilant observer sending the light but absolutely refusing to participate in that chaos. And yes, you’ve had a very up close and personal experience of this, my friend.
So there is this breakdown, but it is necessary at the same time to step back, to surrender to the greater good.
SB: Well, we certainly have our work cut out for us because things like surrender…well, we have been a very materially oriented society. We’re used to doing, we’re used to walking and taking something in our hands and moving it and manipulating it. And surrender is the exact opposite of that. So it’s a very difficult concept to work with.
St. Germaine: Yes, and I’m about to make it even more difficult.
SB: Ha ha. Well, thank you very much!
St. Germaine: You are welcome, my friend, because now I want to take the next step and talk to you about how creation is also a key component of surrender. So you say, “But we are used to – our pattern as human beings is in fact – to step forward, to walk, to take action.” I am not suggesting that you not take action. And the most substantial action in form, in tangible reality that you can take is the action of creation. And you have not fully…you have begun, but you have not fully engaged in the truth of your race, the creator race…all of you.
So, if I might…and you are going to say, “Oh, this is too hard, St. Germaine.” If I might use you, my dear friend, as an example…
When you are in a situation, for example, where people are blocking your exit and they are being obstructive, let us stop using euphemisms for what is really nasty behavior. Lightworkers are often reticent, reluctant to call something…they say, “Oh, I don’t want to label it.” It is simply identification, my friend. If it is obstructive, it is obstructive.
Now, what happened is that behavior, which is very distant from love and consideration, what you felt was this anger and aggravation, this frustration and you allowed that to capture you instead of saying, “Whoa, step back. I need to be in my observer self and in my observer self I see this as obstructive behavior.
And my participant self is going to blast these people with love and then perhaps even tap them on the shoulder and say, ‘Hey, I don’t know if you realize it but you’re blocking my way. Could you just please move? Thanks a lot.’” Rather than allowing it, you feel like you have been invaded. You have been obstructed. They feel that that behavior got them exactly what they were looking for and nobody wins.
When you see someone cheating and jumping on a bus without paying, you step back and you observe and then your participant self says, “Hey”…again a gentle tap on the shoulder…and you say, “But I’ll miss my stop” and I say, “So what?”…you tap them on the shoulder and you say, “Hey, I noticed you got on the bus from the back. Is it because you don’t have any money?” And you will be able to discern my friend, not judge, but discern whether in fact that is the case, in which case give them the price of the bus fare.
But if it is not, what you are doing simply by saying that…and to the people around you…is that that behavior of theft is not acceptable even in the smallest way. It creates social dissonance. And you are not only addressing the individual, you are saying to the entire bus,“this behavior that is based on dishonesty is not acceptable” and you are affirming for all of them who are sitting there thinking “what just happened?”, that you can speak for them as well.
Do you understand what I am saying? And in that you are creating a different paradigm.
SB: I do and I think the leftover residue is here with me because I feel aggressive, period. It’s like I have this experience of aggressiveness going on with me. So, that’s what I’m faced with overcoming so to speak, or transcending. In the end it isn’t really a case of the breakdown of society, it’s a case of me spoiling for a fight.
St. Germaine: My beloved friend, that IS the breakdown of society. When you are sitting there wanting and spoiling for a fight and believe-you-me I have felt the same…you know that I was an excellent swordsman and there were many times I went looking for a fight. It is you, so you cannot divorce yourself from that feeling that things are breaking down because it is like you caught the virus of chaos.
Now, what I would suggest to you and to all of you, because you are all experiencing in different situations and in different gradations this sense of, “I want to punch somebody” – surrender… take a giant step back…and then fall back into my violet bonfire. Come and rest on my purple velvet bed on my air mattress. Surrender and turn to any of us and say, “Expletive, expletive, expletive, I don’t want to feel this way! Take it away.” You see, you don’t think or feel, when you feel this way that you can just turn to us and say, “Oh, there goes my old third-dimensional self. Can you help me out here?”
We are really good at that. We can really help with that, but because you feel…and I mean you collectively…often you feel “Oh, I misstepped; oh, that is not a very nice vibratory thing to feel.” And then what you do is you go into self punishment. You go into nay saying yourself and feeling poorly about yourself. And then of course, you get to blame those people on the bus, or the subway, or the bank, or the supermarket, or Syria, and then it just builds and you are caught once again in that downward spiral, like water going down the drain.
That is not how I am asking you to proceed. Surrender these emotions that aren’t the truth of who you are, or perhaps they are, it doesn’t matter. If you don’t want it, ask for help. Surrender it. You see, you think, you feel that this righteous anger somehow achieves something…I am bringing it up – I am letting go. Well then let go.
There were many things that disturbed me, to put it mildly, when I walked the planet. And my greatest lesson was surrender. And in surrender, in this realization that I can use and be the love energy of Father/Mother One, I crossed that line from what you can think of as being an old human to what you will think of as being a new human.
I have been through the process that you are going through my friends right now…and for a brief time I got to keep my body…and it is difficult, it is hard to be in the body holding these frequencies that have never been held individually or collectively in a body, and certainly not in a collective body because what has happened previously is when you reached that point, you simply turn into pure light.
But the Mother is asking you, and you have said, “Yes” to hold that light and love and to actually be in a body. And what makes it even more difficult is She has asked you to do this and you have said “Yes” to do it with a “civilization” in transition. So, not only are you surrendering, becoming the truth of the love participant/observer, but at the same time you are witnessing and transforming and co-creating Nova Earth and destroying through love what is not of love.
You can only destroy what is not of love with love. You can never destroy it with anger, or control, or aggression, or greed. That will never work. And so, unless those who are in that whirlwind receive a helping hand, if they are in the middle of the tornado and you extend a hand into the middle of the heart of that tornado and pull them out…if not they will go down the drain. And you say, “Well, that is alright.” And part of it is alright because that is their choice to either accept or reject.
And there will be many, and there are many right now who are rejecting and who will return to our side and complete their mission from the light. And part of them will smack their heads and say, “Oh my gosh, what did I do” and some of them will recover and some will say, “Thank God I’m home.”
But for those who are choosing to remain and be the co-founders of Nova Earth…can you imagine throughout all existence, not in a way that is of ego but in the way of recognition of the fulfillment of the promise to the Mother, to be able to say, “We did it! And it was brutal and it was hard and sometimes I didn’t know if I was going to make it…but we did it.” That is a gift beyond measure.
That is why I began this day by saying, “Surrender and remember you are here for ascension. Everything else is part of creation of Nova Earth. But if you keep your eye on surrender, action that is appropriate, that is of love, of co-creation of the new – very shortly you will be saying, “Oh my, it actually shifted.”
And you will see in the structures, in the openings, monetary, social, political, star family…it will all be there.
SB: I’d like to go back to what you were saying about the body because I think most of us consider that the body is neutral, we carry it around, it has its aches and pains, but that’s about it. But in effect the body is a tremendous drag on consciousness is it not?
It’s very dense. We’re carrying it around and it doesn’t allow the experience of emotions that we’d have without the body. It doesn’t allow us to think in the ways that we are capable of thinking. Can you just talk to us a bit more about the impact of these energies on this body that we’re carrying around?
St. Germaine: Now I am going to make it even more difficult…and let me also say that each and every one of you have your mountains to climb or your valleys to plunge into. It is metaphorical as well. So, you have thought of your bodies as this luggage and baggage you are dragging around instead of a harmonious engine that is allowing you to experience physicality. When the Mother in Her infinite and eternal wisdom has given you, all of you and you individually, this beautiful vessel, it was a gift not a curse.
In the energies, particularly now – but this has been going on for years, increasing, increasing, increasing until you think that you are spinning out of control, but you aren’t – but in the increases, your bodies have never held this much energy and I am talking about your physical form not your extended bodies.
This vessel that you with your guardians and the Mother and many of us helped you design and choose…which was perfect by the way…it is feeling the electrical light quotient. So many of you are feeling exhausted – energized – exhausted – energized – exhausted…you feel physically different. Not only has your external world shifted and how you perceive what you have defined as that reality, the reality of your physical body, is also radically changing.
So yes, there are aches and pains, digestive, heart, joint, all of these issues are to the forefront just as the poor behavior is through the roof, so are the experiences of your body through the roof at this time. But the body, the intention for the body, wasn’t separate from your heart consciousness, from the knowingness. It was to be fully conscious in a form, a humanoid form which is shared by many beings, of what joy and love feels like.
Now you have just begun to edge…and now I am speaking of the collective, not the individual…but collectively you are just moving into what it feels like at a cellular level to feel joy and love inside those cells. And for some of you it feels as if you are suddenly effervescent ginger ale. For some of you it feels as if you have your finger in a light socket. For some of you it feels like overload, but the purpose is to actually feel this sense of such enormous vitality that you don’t even feel, as you adjust, that you can stay inside your skin.
And increasingly, a greater definition as the observer of who you are in body, and then a disappearing in many ways of the container of your skin because you feel, even in form, completely connected to everybody. And it starts with the feeling of connection of those closest to you, so that you feel each other’s heart. You feel each other’s energy. You feel each other’s thoughts, not in a sense of invasion or breaking of confidentiality or what you have thought of as boundaries, but in a sense of unity consciousness that you have never felt before that is growing and growing and growing so rapidly.
So the shift that has been talked about so much is not just the shift upon Gaia, shift in dimensions, shift from mental to heart consciousness. It is also in your body so that you are feeling “Here’s a little ancillary engine I’ve got going and it can take me anywhere.”
Do you understand what I say?
SB: I do understand, but unfortunately we’re running out of time so I’m regretfully going to have to ask you to perhaps give your final thoughts on the subject.
St. Germaine: My final thought is we have just begun and I would be pleased to come back and continue my practical discussion of surrender, if you will so honor me…
SB: A practical discussion on a very difficult topic to get a hold of… I’d love to have you back to discuss that, St. Germaine, or anything else for that matter.
St. Germaine: Then I would be delighted to come. Go with my love and, my beloved friends, do not forget…surrender your debris, your garbage, your anger, your angst to me. Farewell.
SB: Thank you. Farewell.
