‘Pink Eye’ – London Eye by Philip Bloom @ Flickr.



What is the metric, what is the measurement that we use and that you use to see how this progression is going? It is in the joy factor of the human beings – and particularly those who inhabit, who work, who visit this place called London.
At Archangel Michael’s behest, Andrew shares this beautiful Channelled Gem with us from his reading with Linda on 1st August, 2018

Greetings – I am Michael. Welcome, welcome, welcome my blue brother of peace, my blue brother of love, my blue brother of truth.

These are ‘standalones’ and they are not dependent upon agreement or alignment even with those that remain – and choose to remain – recalcitrant or in the chaos or simply uninvolved. Truth is not a matter of consensus. Peace – yes, does try in the physical world that you occupy to build consensus, but the peace within, the peace that you carry, the peace that you share is not dependent upon human agreement or even acknowledgment.

The path of the peaceful warrior – might I say the warrior of love, the warrior of truth – can be very lonely, and you, sweet one, have truly walked that path, and I do not merely mean as you walk the perimeter of this beautiful City of Light. And yes, the City of Light is coming forth and it is indeed being polished and cleaned up – in some ways you might think of [it as being] irradiated with truth and peace.

How do you know this? What is the metric, what is the measurement that we use and that you use to see how this progression is going? It is in the joy factor of the human beings – and particularly those who inhabit, who work, who visit this place called London. There is not a sense of being stuck in the quagmire of chaos. There is a sense of excitement, of the new percolating – simmering – on the back burner, an ignition of the inspiration factor of the people that walk these streets… even those who fly over!

This is the true reflection and measurement of how things are progressing. The final step comes from what you think of as the ‘upper echelon’, the ‘top tier’, the organisations, the political, social, financial institutions and structures. Because they are the most resistant – because they are the most entrenched in ego and self-interest.

But as more and more people… yes, the populace – this is a basis of many civilisations, when the populace is not interested and in their own way becomes recalcitrant to play that game – then the game is over! That game of abuse of authority and control and hatred and greed. And even when you think… and we are looking at the people, the individuals, regardless of station who are what you can call or think of as the placeholders in these ancient, erroneous – let us call them that: erroneous – societal or financial or political institutions. Even they are tired of that old game. Even they are saying, “You know, I would really like to have time out… I would really like to have something to do to call my own… I would really like to retire from this!”

So increasingly you are going to see that shift away from those that are really interested – eager, excited – to fill those positions, those cement structures that have come to represent and to hold the energy of control. The reason why I say this to you – and to many, by the way, this day – is that it is important that the ‘updates’ shall we call them, on how these various procedures work – lightwork, lovework – how they are influencing and truly shifting not only the old paradigms but infusing the entire City with the new.

So, my beloved brother of blue, of gold, you are doing well and we thank you, we support you, we commend you – and we beg you to continue!

Revisiting Self-Control, Self-Mastery – Steve Beckow

Revisiting Self-Control, Self-Mastery


The shortest way to mastering every thought and feeling (1) – in order to work with the galactics – is to take command of myself; that is, to practice self-mastery or self-control.

How would I normally accomplish the task? Go through each thought and feeling individually? It would take too long.

By assuming command of myself – self-mastery, self-control – I probably cut the time involved by an order of magnitude.

As the runt of the litter, I needed to get my message across somehow. I grew up specializing in menacing glances and resistant behavior. Self-control was never my strong suit.

So coming upon the need for self-mastery, self-control as an adult is a new approach for me.

In my growth-movement days, self-expression was preferred to self-control, creative expression to creative repression.

But the galactics – like the Arcturians here – often point out to us the need for self-control. The following quote is long but very germane.

Everything they say here mirrors my experience of taking charge of myself. Notice their reference to what I’ve called “I the watcher.” (2)

“As this shift continually accelerates your consciousness, you will gain a new perspective on your physical world. This higher viewpoint will enable you to perceive your 3D reality from ‘up above it’ rather than ‘stuck within it.’ In other words, you will be able observe your ego from your Higher SELF.

“Once your Multidimensional SELF is in charge, you will be able to make some important decisions that make YOU the creator of your life. You will also become aware of many of your higher dimensional, alternate or parallel realities. …

“As you regain a higher perspective of your life, many of your priorities will change. Your ego will no longer tell you to let go of your meditations and creative expression so that you can ‘get back to the business of your real life.’

“With your Higher SELF at the helm, you will realize that what you have perceived as ‘just your imagination’ is actually your real life. Then slowly, or quickly, you will want to ‘let go’ of many of our your lower frequency chores, responsibilities and jobs.

“In this manner, you can more easily remain in the unconditional light and love of the fifth dimension. Of course you will still ‘take care of 3D business,’ but your priorities will greatly alter as your consciousness expands into the higher dimensions.” (3)

Everything said about “your Multidimensional SELF … in charge” and “your Higher Self at the helm” mirrors my experience.

Many years ago, I’d never have entertained the advice that Peggy Black and the Team give us here. But now I do.

“When these thoughts of discouragement arise shake them off as quickly as possible.  We would like to invite you to practice feeling good for no reason. Look for ways to uplift your own personal energy field. This is one of the most important self-mastery skills that you can call forth. So no matter what is occurring in your personal life or the global arenas, find areas in which you can practice your gratitude. …

“The vibration and frequency of gratitude is truly a game changer. Your entire field of energy shifts even if it is just a microscopic shift and a fleeting sense of thankfulness.” (4)

Is mine an example of an outdated belief that needs to be dropped? Do I need to engage in patterns of behavior that I’d never have looked at after Cold Mountain like deflecting?  Changing the subject? Talking over top of an upset (discouragement)?

Apparently yes. The higher-dimensional vibrations allow us to shift our mood now whereas deep third-density vibrations did not.

Here, Hilarion discusses the disappearing need for “tedious and painstaking” processing:

At this point in the unfoldment of the Divine Plan, the law of grace is in effect and humanity is being blessed by the neutralization of any repetitive thoughts that come unbidden from the very depths of their being.

“These core issues invariably have their roots in a previous existence as life was experienced through a physical incarnation. …

“Gone are the days of tedious and painstaking efforts to become filled with more light quotient, for this is now a moment-by-moment occurrence as more light fills the planet and the strides being made in the advancement of the Divine Plan are beyond our wildest expectations.

“Many underlying changes are taking place within the structures of the old paradigm and are quietly being replaced by new systems which allow the rights of all to come into consideration.” (5)

If our core issues are falling away as vibrations rise, why master every thought and feeling? There are many obvious reasons – getting along with the galactics, avoiding misunderstandings, participating appropriately in galactic discussions and decision-making, etc.

Let’s look at a few that are not as obvious.

The first is that the galactics are telepathic and can read our thoughts and see what we’re thinking and feeling.

You remember the famous cartoon Top Dog/Underdog, where a person is saying one thing and his inner state is depicted as saying something altogether different (usually depicted as a screaming baby)? The galactics would be able to see our insincerity instantly. So that’s a compelling non-obvious reason for self-mastery.

The second is a touchy subject – pun intended. Our emotional vibrations and levels of cleanliness can prove disturbing to them. One galactic even confided that he had to clean himself when he returned to ship after even a short visit to Earth.

“Each of us who does make short landings has to undergo a thorough cleansing process before we are allowed back on our mother ships where we reside, so as not to contaminate our own living quarters. We do not say these things to shame you, but to let you know that there remain some differences in our living environments that make it difficult for both sides to come together as one.” (6)

That may be a side of things that we haven’t thought about and may not wish to think about. But we can contribute to their comfort by at least mastering every negative thought and feeling.

I’ve noticed that whenever I feel victimized, whenever I have a poor-me thought, whenever I feel weak and beaten down, I’ve forgotten that I’m the master of my internal states.

I know the literature of the Sixties and Seventies objected to any form of external control. But I think in the process we lost sight of the necessity for internal control – self-control.

As we ponder working with the galactics to build Nova Earth, self-mastery, self-control, self command are becoming subjects, in my opinion, that we may need to revisit.


(1)  “You will be called upon to master EVERY thought and feeling. …

“Hence any thoughts or feelings that cause inner conflict of any form are best pulled into your conscious mind to be displayed as an experience. In fact, in 5D this will occur with your EVERY thought/emotion.

“Hence our leaders are having to totally hone this mastery of energy NOW.” (Loc. cit.)

And another:

“You must see yourself. You must be aware of what you are thinking, what you are saying, what you are doing and WHY. Why are you thinking that? Why are you saying that? Why are you doing that?” (“Message from the Arcturians: Walking The NOW,” channelled by Suzanne Lie. March 27, 2014, at

Cultivating the Light of the Radiant Compassionate Heart – Live Stream Altair Shyam

Guan Yin by Minjae Lee @ DeviantArt


The distortion is cleared when playing


Altair Shyam will do a live meditation “Cultivating the Light of the Radiant Compassionate Heart” at 13:00 GMT, Sunday 2 December, or 1:00 PM London (5:00 AM in Los Angeles and 8:00 AM in New York, 22:00 PM in Tokyo and midnight in Sydney) on Facebook Live Stream.


To begin, Altair will share the Radiant Compassionate Heart Method of Avalokiteshvara Guan Yin

Altair will share some his stories, as well as the importance of faith and confidence in your practice and your own path with heart, and tips to help you in those days when events seem to make practice and your path more of a struggle than others.

Altair will also explore some of the subtle stages of consciousness in the meditation.

This meditation will explore portals of awakening through creating the awareness of Avalokiteshvara Guan Yin’s consciousness within, through the power of the angelic, bodhisattva and master experience in each one of us, simply by being, and bringing deep presence and wisdom to our daily experience, moment by moment.

Just as we have an outer life now that we strongly connect to, and that we draw our outer purpose from, so we have an inner purpose, to awaken divine consciousness, and this is awakening within as we speak right now.

Experiences drawn from Altair’s new book
‘Diary of a Yogi – A Book of Awakening’
which has just been published,

and the new spiritual television channel
‘Enlightened World Network’
which has just launched

will explore how to awaken the light within us, and how to awaken the radiant compassionate heart of Avalokiteshvara Guan Yin and the Light of the One Shared Heart consciousness which is within us all.

Like Avalokiteshvara Guan Yin we are all Lights for this World.

We will then reveal through the unity of the Shared Heart the miracles we can unfold through the state of being that is the awakened divine consciousness of Avalokiteshvara Guan Yin, ever-present in the light.

Love and Blessings
Altair and Mother ♥
