Hitting the Target – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Earth Mother by Mara Diop


Hitting the Target

As we awaken to who it is that’s here, we walk a strait and narrow line, as Archangel Michael makes plain here:

“There is a very peculiar attribute among human beings. On the one hand — and we are back to the seesaw, teeter-totter — … there is the ego and the sense of self importance, and, on the other hand, at the other end of the seesaw, there is this sense of false humility and lack of self-worth.” (1)

On the one hand we want to stay away from a sense of inflated self-importance, as Michael says. But on the other hand, we can fall into the pit of false modesty and a feeling of inflated worthlessness.

Let’s look at both in turn. About our false sense of self-importance, Michael called the level of entitlement among lightworkers “appalling.”

“This is simply not about a temporal or a physical manifestation because one has committed to be a Lightworker. In fact the level of entitlement amongst many is appalling and I say that very strongly and very clearly.

“It is not because you are the chosen people. It is because there is a need and a soul agreement for the fulfilment of the Mother’s Plan, that when the spiritual re-evaluation of enough people, and the commitment to truly change, takes place, then the physical manifestation of those resources come forth.” (2)

He encouraged us:

“As you assume profile – whether it is because of money or notoriety or political power or financial power, it matters not – it gives you a sense of being elevated. We would encourage you to take the elevator to the basement. …

“There can be no room for this sense of false importance, arrogance, entitlement.” (3)

He cautions us that entitlement and arrogance will interfere with our ability to do our work for the Mother and says it will need to be seen to.

Archangel Michael: Even within the Lightworker community, there are pockets of entitlement and arrogance that are not acceptable. So that needs to be … cleared. …
If [lightworkers] do not do it, it will be done for them. And that is not a threat. It is simply a necessity for the unfoldment of the Mother’s Plan. (3)

At the other end of the spectrum, the Arcturians address our false modesty.

Arcturians:  You need to … release whatever remnants of human modesty that still encompass your self-esteem.

Steve Beckow:  Could you expand on that a bit?  I view it as humility, I hope.

A:  Humility is a human quality.  For humans have learned that they must be humble, for, if they allow their true light to be seen, then people become frightened.  So they have learned to shield their light with what humans call humility.

However, we do not shield our light. We are who we are, and you are who you are, and you have immense light.  Humility is shielding that Light.  Gaia needs those who can ground great light to ground every particle of that great Light. (4)

A “sin” is a missed mark in archery. If we want to hit the target instead of missing the mark, we have to walk a middle line of neutrality and balance. It seems to involve acknowledging both the power that we hold as incarnated angels and starseeds and recognizing that this does not place us “above” anyone else, but only allows us to better serve.

If we can think of these as two extremes – entitlement and worthlessness – then to hit the mark would be to hit dead-center.

Just as anger reveals fear underneath, so also self-importance, in my view, reveals fear – a fear of being somehow worthless.

Higher-dimensional beings tell us there is really nothing to fear and we may get glimpses of that. But until we realize it down to our bones, it may serve us simply to let go of any thought tinted with self-importance or false modesty – being too big or too small to fit reality.

Riding the Waves of the Sacred Spiral – Kara Schallock

Riding the Waves of the Sacred Spiral – 13-Aug-2018

Completely shifting to being New is not what we thought it would be. When the word Transformation has been used, did we think it would mean a complete upheaval of what we’ve come to count on? It’s easy to intellectualize everything and yet, it’s not appropriate, as the mind has little to do with Transformation. If you ponder the Transformation of the caterpillar to the butterfly, you understand the caterpillar does not merely sprout wings while keeping its body. No; the caterpillar dissolves completely and a new DNA is formed, as are its cells. It then builds its new form from this recalibrated goo. We are the same. Many of us can relate to being goo; nothing is familiar, many of our closest people have fled, our bodies and minds don’t work the same and the beat continues.

It is difficult to comprehend that there is no end to this evolution, yet it’s important to embrace…that ascension is ongoing and infinite. With a human and limited mind, we always think if there’s a beginning, there must be an end. There simply is no end. Ascension is a spiral that goes on infinitely. You reach one wave and there is another that takes you farther, then another wave arrives; you ride that wave till another appears and so on. Human conditioning can’t quite grasp this. We think for sure there is an end goal. This is the New. We don’t get to take our human conditioning with us! We can try, yet it simply doesn’t work. Many are still in the old linear conditioning that says this point leads to that point; it’s only logical. Nothing is logical. There is no linear way of being. We are on a spiral. We ebb and flow.

The best we can do is to relax and observe without expecting things to be a certain way. It’s why many feel they have to have even one thing that is familiar…like how they arrange their day, how they recluse themselves, how and what they eat or how they interract with others. Many of us are learning an opposite way of living. How we used to do things has or is shifting. I often think of George Costanza of the Seinfeld Show. In one episode, he decides to do the opposite of how he has usually done things. He figures out that it works for him. It greatly helps to have at least one thing that you can count on while you shift to the New, where everything seems to be so very different. Being in Nature also greatly helps, as does daily meditation.

We are seemingly forced to do things differently. For instance, if you have waited for someone else to show the way (this includes guides), you may discover that by making a choice yourself, magic happens. This is just one shift of many. You see, we are sovereign beings. It is all up to us. One time my guides walked away from me, saying it was time to work with my own Soul. I felt I wasn’t ready, yet it wouldn’t have happened unless I was. This was over thirty years ago. Life has not been the same since. However, with the latest Lion’s Gate and eclipse and many other phenomenon urging us to be more, it seems like a huge leap forward to work only with our Souls. It’s essential to be fully immersed as Soul.

I use the term “Lion’s Gate” because most are familiar with that term; however, labels are not used in the New; they limit. Let us just say it’s another big wave on the spiral we are traveling. We are reminded not so gently to stay in the Moment, for it is only in the Moment we can ride the wave of energy pulling us along. We can use the momentum of this wave to release more of the lower energies like anger and unforgiveness; these hold us back; stopping the flow. You are not in the Moment when you experience lower emotions. These lower emotions are of the past; let them go when they surface and reroot yourself in the Moment. What do you feel when you’re fully in the Moment?

We are still in the energy of both the “Lion’s Gate” and all of the eclipses. All  of these together accentuate the energy. Gaia is experiencing this as well. Look at the fires of Transmutation! Yes, all is very intense now, which is affecting us clear down to our cells. Oh my, aren’t we exhausted?!? Lots is going on; yet there are new beginnings and insights, which lead to an upgrade of consciousness. We have more Divine Wisdom as the Light Codes from our own Original Home infuse us with their Love. Our new DNA is activated and we accelerate our personal and spiritual evolution. With this acceleration, manifestation of wherever we put our attention occurs.

We are being profoundly affected. Our Hearts are expanding, which also expands our Courage and Expression. This energy also likely brings up old energies; all those things that hold us back in the old. If you feel anxious, angry, impatient and/or lethargic, these are all brought forth by the intense energies. Don’t allow them to rule your life; observe them and then step into the Moment. Meditate so that not only will you stay in the Moment, you also align yourself with the energies that are flowing; and you more easily and consciously become One with and as your Soul; your Authentic Self.

Stay grounded and focused on your Heart’s intentions, meditate and be in Nature often. Honor your Integrity and laugh. As you do, you heal and whole your deep wounds and expand your Heart and 3rd Eye chakras. As your Heart opens wider, you receive many blessings, especially from the Blue Beings of Sirius.

On Facebook, I mentioned a chakra that is located in the cerebellum at the base of the skull. It is being activated and upgraded for many; those who are ready for it. This upgrade includes higher Sensitivity to energies. So if you feel some energy there or if it’s a bit sore, this might help you understand it more. Also it is connected to the Crown chakra by many tiny chakras, often referred to as the “string of pearls.” Pearls hold essences of Purity and Wisdom. This chakra in the cerebellum is referred to as the “Mouth of God,” which is further enhanced when you speak your Truth. I have been told it also holds past lives and is called (if you choose to have a name for it) the Ascension Chakra. While it’s not considered to be a major chakra, it feels to me like it’s quite important for us at this time.

Love is a word that has been bandied about often. Love is Source; it is who we are. As Love, we are loving. This means that we accept all, even though we don’t necessarily have relationships with all of whom we love We still choose to be with those we resonate with; yet we love and accept all even while there are differences. When we open our Hearts to all of life, we create the New Earth. Sometimes being loving is letting go of certain people and loving first and then releasing patterns that limit us. Love is recognizing there is no separation.

As we evolve, we also see the illusions folks project as a way to protect themselves from evolving. The more you are honest and in your Integrity, the more these same folks may push you away, as their separate ego has them adhere to their old patterns and judgments and you pose a risk to their comfort zone. You need not take this personally, as all have a choice. Be sure to take care of yourself. One way to do this is to not chase after others who choose not to be close to you in order to heal or fix the relationship. Let go and let be gracefully. Allow yourself the space and time to heal and whole. Life is on a continuum. It is not black and/or white; it ebbs and flows.

Be sure not to let the world’s events distract you. Choose what you focus on. As you focus on the positive things that surround you, you evolve and attract more of the same. There are many who are doing positive things for life. How are you contributing? It can be as small as feeding birds, composting, recycling, donating time and/or money…there are so many ways in which you add to the Beauty of life. Whatever you choose to focus on grows. Be in Appreciation and Gratitude for all in your life, whether big or small, flowing or challenging. There is plenty of drama in the world and yet, you have a choice as to whether you join in the drama or choose a different path. Choose those things that make your Heart swell and enhance your Joy.

Be in Discernment always. Do not take folks’ words as Truth, for Truth is within you. If something resonates, your Heart expands; if something doesn’t feel right, pay attention to your own feelings. This shifts as you evolve.

As our DNA upgrades, realize that our entire bodies are affected. Our Lightbody (Soul) is descending to merge as us. This brings many changes. I won’t go into them, as the energies affect each of us uniquely. You may want to sequester yourself or scream or cry or laugh. Whatever you do is helping you acclimate to being New. Breathe deeply. Breathe into anything you are experiencing. The breath is Light. Remind yourself of who you are. You are nothing short of a miraculous unfolding of Divine Love.

Love and blessings from the Source.

As each of you sits there, listening to me, reading these words, you perceive that we are separate.

That is what our brains are hard-wired to do.

Through years of evolution our brains have developed physiologically to be in fight or flight mode.


So we don’t experience the universe as it is.

Within us, is the cosmos.

Within each of us, sitting here, is the God-Self, the deeper “I”, which connects to the universe as it is.

When we are still.

A universal connector as it were.

That universal connector within us, that universal gate is the consciousness of the goddess Guan Yin Avalaokiteshvara.

The Universal Gate.

Quantum physics calls this the gate of quantum entanglement or as Einstein said “spooky action at a distance.”

Because we all know the lightness of being that comes when we are in love.

It works at a distance.

The Universal Gate activates.

When I met my wife, Sumire, we were traveling together to an isolated beach in New Zealand called Whale Beach. This story is in my new book ‘Diary of a Yogi – A Book of Awakening’ coming out in October. As we reached an old farm gate and started to climb over we were both transported to the realm of pure consciousness and cosmic awareness and we could feel it moving in and through us.


Connecting us to the universe as it is.

Even when we are not close we know what the other person is doing or feeling when we are in love.

Like quantum physics, we are entangled, in love.

The Universal Gate of Guan Yin Avalokiteshvara Consciousness is not outside you.

She is within you, alive and speaking through me and through you in everything we do, when we are present, and experiencing the universe as it is.

When I met the Dalai Lama, personally, on several occasions, and asked him how to practice the consciousness of Guan Yin Avalokiteshvara he always says study, study Her Way, then practice, practice being a Divine Mother for the world with the affection of a mother for a child.

Then he said to teach 10 people and ask them to teach 10 more people the path of compassion of Guan Yin.

Why compassion?

The Buddha said “Have compassion for all beings.”

This puts us directly in touch with the power of the Universal Gate, to be present for every person we come across on our path.

Jesus said “Love your neighbor.”

The power of love to touch the hearts of every person in our day.

How are we to practice?

The Dalai Lama guided me to follow Guan Yin’s own words as spoken in the Heart Sutra or Prajnaparamitahrihdaya

Tadyatha gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha

Tadyatha – Prepare – pause, breathe, stop, listen deeply, establish presence

Gate Gate – Foundation – generosity, teaching (interconnectedness), patience of inclusiveness, effort, meditation, samadhi or wisdom and bliss

Paragate – Meditation

Parasamgate – Insight

Bodhi Svaha – Go beyond

The Universal Gate is

1 gate, 2 gates, 3 gates, 4 gates and the 5th is beyond the gate.

What is the deeper meaning?

Simply, to stay in connection with the universe, when you walk, walk.

Remember to pause and breathe throughout your day.

Stop, listen deeply to the universe flowing around you and within you.

Practice presence moment to moment through activating portals of presence.

Use the breath, breathing in breathing out.

When your mind is disengaged from its usual mindless or obsessive behavior it connects to presence, the deeper “I AM” or Source.

Use the energy body, breathing in the light, breathing out the light, feeling the ocean of light within and expanding it to feel the ocean of light that surrounds you.

Mary Magdalen – The Holy Grail Art Print by Robyn Chance @ Fine Art America


As you practice deep listening and seeing, see the mind and its thoughts as merely waves on that ocean of light. The deep of the ocean is the deeper “I” or “I AM Presence”. Then day to day, though you may not notice anything, the cup, the Chalice or the Grail gets fuller, until one day the consciousness of the cosmos speaks to you and through you, because now it has filled up the cup of the heart within you, and lets you know you are home.

Some time ago I was practicing in a mindfulness group and was very very still.

For a long time.

Long Nu

In that presence the Dragon’s Daughter Long Nu, acolyte of Guan Yin Avalokiteshvara arose in light body form, as clear and real as you are to me when I meet you in the physical world, and she held out a pearl to me, the Chintamani Stone, which many of you know I received from the Heart of Guan Yin Avalokiteshvara as a real rare deep sea ocean pearl in this lifetime. In the Lotus Sutra, Manjushri speaks of Her as the eight-year-old daughter of the Dragon or Naga King Sagara. As she is only eight some of the Buddha’s disciples do not believe she is a Buddha. She offers a pearl to the Buddha, symbolizing her life and ego, and he accepts it. She then instantly transforms into a bodhisattva and then attains complete enlightenment. When I received the pearl from her I understood her message as I had just offered my own pearl that I had received from Guan Yin Avalokiteshvara and had used for years in healing work to a woman who was dying and needed it more than me. For me, that woman was Guan Yin Buddha and I could offer my self and all the blessings I had accumulated for her complete enlightenment.

When you do the Babaji Breath, breathing the light of AWE up your astral spine or spine of light and breathing the light of E-ternity down the spine, you are deep in presence and awareness and breathing a cosmic current around the interior stars of the chakras, connecting one to all and activating the power of the One Chakra.

You literally breathe into existence the consciousness of the cosmos within you.

The Light of the Cosmos Within.

I was contemplating the Light of the Cosmos within us as I was editing the ‘Diary of a Yogi’ today.

Phoenix Fire by Robjoeball @ Epilogue.net.

I have had some real AHA moments while writing and contemplating the book and entering the portals of Presence that such a book’s words create. Like all portals, words create shifts in us, and the book’s main purpose is to create a shift in consciousness, to awaken us. That is why I say that all who read ‘Diary of a Yogi’ are awakeners.

Like the Chintamani Stone, the Lotus Flower, the Phoenix and the Dragon, which are all portals of Presence, making us more transparent to the light of consciousness within us, an inner transformation that is radical and profound is the state of consciousness of an awakener. As you shift, others around you feel the shift, and awaken spiritually too.

When we are alert, still and silent and present with the words, when we contemplate them deeply in our heart, our own divine life essence, the consciousness that exists in every being, awakens from its sleep, and love blossoms. We see that same divine consciousness in all living things and we love it as our own, as one, as the One Shared Heart.

We see that divine consciousness in Guan Yin.

We love her as our own, as one with us, in the One Shared Heart.

Be Guan Yin.

Be love and compassion.

Be the Light of the Source.

Love and blessings always
