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.
