In the course of re-reading all the channeled readings I’ve had with Archangel Michael through Linda Dillon, I came across two discussions from 2011 of what really happens at Ascension.
Ascension is both gradual and sudden. There is preparation, integration, and assimilation and then a jump (such as a heart opening or Ascension itself). Then more preparation for the next jump.
“Ascension” itself refers to what Hindus call moksha, mukti, or liberation. That’s an event known as Sahaja Samadhi and constitutes a full and permanent heart opening. It happens somewhat inside the Fifth Dimension.
It’s that event that Michael is talking about here.
Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 1, 2011.
Steve Beckow: I don’t think there is anyone, Lord, that I am aware of who has told us what actually occurs when we ascend. What actually takes place that the word ascension refers to and applies to? What are the events that we would be aware of, or even not aware of, that constitute ascension?
Archangel Michael: Well, I could tease you and tell you the key point of ascension is you get a new bank account. [Laughter] And it has unlimited funds! But that is not the case. But in a way it is. (1)
Steve: As in my being a co-creator?
AAM: That is correct. So, it is the elimination of what you think of in many ways of effort. The period of time that this process takes can be slightly different for different people. As I have said to you there will be many at the last minute rushing through the door, (2) and that will not be as smooth a journey as someone who has done their preparation adequately. And soulfully. … (3)
It is a feeling of complete and utter surrender and bliss. It is a sensation — physical, mental, emotional, spiritual — of union. So there is a moment where you feel, oh, I have died. Because that is the sense of such release and reconnection.
But of course you are not dying. Quite the contrary. Now, in much of your history or literature — and I do include sacred books in that — ascension is also related to a keeping of some kind of physicality and form. Now, some will choose not to do that, and that is fine. But that is a choice.
But let us talk about you. Let us use you as an example. Because you have done your very deep work, and your heart is committed to this path for many, many years. There will be that sense of blissful connection that you have experienced a couple of times, (4) but it will be even more so. The sense will be that you are flying upward. It is a physical sensation of movement. And a remembering – or the sensation of remembering – that you have wings, or the ability to fly.
So that is the feeling of ascending up the sacred spiral. There will be a period, which can be moments or a few hours, of feeling disassociated, that even if you were to open your eyes and you were to look at a floor, you would see that it is simply made of particles, subatomic particles, quantum particles, that it is not solid. So you have begun immediately to have the real sensation or vision of how things can be seen, and how they may be seen from this side.
So there is a sense of unreality. Now, if you wish to make things solid, you just simply say that you want that, and it will appear. But the knowing that that is simply a construct that you are creating already is there in full consciousness.
When you decide to open your eyes, how you see the colors, the textures, the richness, the air will be very different. What you think of as your senses will be heightened, oh, at least a thousand-fold. So, there is a little adjustment. And we are with you, and we obviously take care of that, because this is completely a joyous situation to be in. Think of it as being spiritually orgasmic. It is the union of all.
Then, you will settle into this knowing, and of course that choice of physicality. But also know that if you choose to keep physicality, immediately what you have noted as, what we would [call] human aches and pains are gone.
But the biggest shift is you no longer live or exist — you can visit, you can exhibit, but you do not live — within the Third Dimension, [after] that movement of what you think of as going up the sacred spiral.
That is the best analogy I can give you. It is the elevator to the Fifth. And further [up], for some who choose. There will be some who simply choose to keep going. But as the collective, that is the Plan.
And it will be the place of love. It will be all of a sudden that the decisions, the actions, the existence, the form is from love – is love, and is from love, and is of love. (5) So that sense of either/or, of what you traditionally have thought of as yes or no, of duality, of polarity is gone.
The entire journey in this Third-Dimensional existence is reaching this place of alignment, of placing yourself beyond the either/or. And when you are doing that in this ascension process, it is like a Roman candle. Off you go! …
Steve: The work we do in completing our old business and upsets [vasanas, core issues] makes for a smooth transition, is that right?
AAM: Yes, it does. Think of it in terms of when a baby, a human baby is birthed, sometimes it is a very easy delivery; sometimes it is 30 hours of labor. Sometimes the mother decides to birth in the fields; sometimes she births in the ocean. Sometimes she goes to a beautiful room; other times she goes to an operating room and has a C-section. But the birthing still occurs. So this is what happens.
(Concluded in Part 2, tomorrow.)
(1) We have only to think of what we want in a Fifth-Dimensional state of consciousness for that object to appear. What we call thought, they think of as creative imagination.
(2) As a pillar, I’m here till the end, shoving people through the door “at the last moment.”
(3) The more vasanas left unprocessed, the bumpier the journey.
(4) Several times. Most recently at a meditation retreat.
(5) And just as our sensations have expanded a thousandfold, so will our experience of love. The higher-dimensional love that we then will experience will be so satisfying and joyous that … the world will work for everyone.
