River of Love – Steve Beckow

Artist ~ Amanda Sage


River of Love

I said in an earlier article that a planetary heart opening was the most likely sudden event to present itself to us.

In my conversation with the Mother on the subject, I asked her if I should be writing about it and she said I should. (1)

It makes to me sense that the greater our understanding of the event, the easier it’ll be for us to weather if and when it happens.

Let’s begin by clarifying some notions. When I say “heart opening,” I’m not referring to an attitude like “open-heartedness.”

I’m referring to a technical, “physical” experience (2) happening to our hearts, which themselves could be said to be located on the Seventh Dimension, Michael told me.

Steve: The heart … doesn’t exist on the physical, obviously. What dimension does the heart exist at or is it multidimensional?

AAM: It is multidimensional but if you want to find a home for it, it would be in the Seventh. (3)

It’s an interdimensional experience triggered by the kundalini reaching the fourth or heart chakra. So first the energy reaches the fourth chakra and then the spiritual heart, which is altogether different, opens. It blossoms; it flowers.

The gateway to the heart, the aperture which resembles a camera’s aperture, is normally closed in almost all of us.  But then an experience happens and the heart is now “open.” That is, the aperture has opened and love now flows. I’ll reference my descriptions of it and Bright Star’s, below. (4)

In my case, I was sitting at my desk, an hour before a reading with Archangel Michael on March 13, 2015. I suddenly became aware of an energy working its way up my leg. (5)

At first I was alarmed, remembering pictures of the killer mist descending on the Egyptians in The Ten Commandments. Then I remembered that I was a servant of the Mother and under her care. If I was having an experience, it was because she willed it. So I surrendered to what was happening.

The energy ran up my body until it reached the heart chakra. When it did, there was an immense explosion, as if a 15-inch gun went off. It felt as if a bale of cotton had been jettisoned from my heart and my heart was now open.

I’m shortening my description by simply saying I found myself in a tsunami, a river of love, which swept away from me all concerns, all anxieties, all fears. I was left in original innocence and purity.

Milliseconds later, I found myself being swept away and ended up in a condition of seeing love everywhere, as if I was immersed in an Ocean of it. At that point there wasn’t a cell in my body that was not drenched in love. There wasn’t a cell in my body that wasn’t surrendered to it. I literally had drowned in love and was loving it.

And this condition lasted, on and off, for another seven months.

For the next several years, I lived in the experience of the heart being partially open. Wisps of love were enough to recreate the experience. Now less so.

This is to be expected of all spiritual experiences short of Ascension or Sahaja Samadhi. Only a full and complete heart opening beyond the seven-chakra system (called Sahaja Samadhi) is permanent.

That’s a thumbnail sketch of the experience of a heart opening.

So again, this is a technical description of a “physical” process. While the heart exists on a higher dimension, we experience it as being located in the center of our being.

When it opens, we get a taste of what’s to come, made permanent for us by the culmination of our Ascension.

I have no idea when the heart opening will occur but make a mental note to not be surprised if one day you find yourself drowning in love. You’re not having a heart attack. Your heart just opened.


(1) Steve: Should I be writing on what to expect [from a heart opening]? That your heart could feel like it’s exploding?

DM: Yes. (“The Mother Promises a Massive Heart Opening – Part 2/2,” September 6, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/09/06/the-mother-promises-a-massive-heart-opening-part-22/.)

(2) I regard all twelve dimensions as being “physical” or “material” (matter, mater, Mother).  Only the Transcendental is not physical, in my view.

(5) One of the reasons I didn’t think this was a kundalini event was that I believed that the kundaini started in the root chakra. But Michael later told me that the kundalini was everywhere and could just as easily run up my leg.

Smelling, Tasting, and Holding Hope – Steve Beckow

Earth Mother by Mara Diop


Smelling, Tasting, and Holding Hope

In my workshop years, the conventional wisdom was that hope was deferred action, wasted opportunity, useless dreaming, etc.

Fast forward to the present and Archangel Michael places some emphasis on the divine quality of hope.

I know he wanted me to post his comments from a bit back. They got lost in a pile of papers on my desktop. But here is his teaching on the value and utility of hope.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Jan. 20, 2017.

Archangel Michael: Hope is necessary. It is not just blind trust or blind faith. In fact there is nothing blind about any of these elements.

Hope is what acts as the glue, as the cement between the ideas, the dreams, the desires, the creation. It is in the very air that you breathe and [is] what you bring to fruition in tangible physical multi-dimensional reality.

If you do not have hope married and partnered deeply with the trust then it does not come to fruition.

Now many do not call it hope. Hope tends to be something that many seem to veer away from and that is why I’m bringing it up today.

But in fact it is the consistent and persistent holding of hope that has allowed you and so many to continue forward.

It is the hope that everything is coming to fruition, that it is coming to fruition not only rapidly but in the form and format that one desires. And if it is not in that format then it will be better than, and that is almost a guarantee.

Because the human scope of vision, even as it is expanding dramatically, is still very limited.

But what you have held out, and what you continue to hold out to so many on our platform is this hope. Not the promise of hope but the actual quality that people can smell and taste and hold as they move forward in the fulfilment of their mission and purpose as well.

You’ve had a very good example of this in your recent real-estate transactions (1)  and you have hoped for years that you would land exactly where you are landing! (2) (SEE PHOTO ON ORIGINAL POST)

Steve: That’s right.

AAM: So you know how hope works, that you hold it and it brings to you that which is truly for your highest good.

There is a quality to this divine quality [of hope] that does not allow for the lesser to intervene.

So, for example, you cannot hope for a kidney stone and have it manifest. That is not how hope works.

It is always higher, better, fuller, broader in alignment with your divine self and with the divine plan. That is one of the straightest and strongest qualities of this element called hope.

Steve: I have always had trouble with hope. (3)

AAM: Yes, I know. That is why we are talking about it. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Jan. 20, 2017.)


(1) Referring to my then-new apartment.

(2) Yes, it’s true. The exact building with the exact outlook I’ve always wanted. (I knew someone who lived in the building.)

(3) It was panned in the growth movement.
