The Heart Chakra is a Portal – Steve Beckow

The Heart Chakra is a Portal

This seems to be a time for dissonance, insights, and breakthrough.  The next few articles illustrate that.

One seldom knows one’s in dissonance until it gets healed. I was in dissonance trying to shoehorn my knowledge of what happened during a fourth-chakra experience into what I know about fourth-chakra experiences in general.

And I’ve always felt uncomfortable.  Like it wouldn’t go into such a confined space and, at a level below awareness, it bothered me. (1)

My knowledge of fourth-chakra experiences in general, including heart openings, says that they’re third dimensional in scope; temporary in duration; and complete unto themselves.

But two features of my own heart opening, which was a fourth-chakra event, simply wouldn’t fit into those parameters.

The love that I felt was higher dimensional. It was beyond the third dimension, whatever higher dimension it was (there are no road signs).

I ended up in an Ocean of Love. I now see that the Ocean of Love is Reality at a much higher dimension than even the initial experience of a tsunami of love was. It was the culmination.

That again suggests that the fourth-chakra experience was not complete in itself, but was a doorway into a higher reality. The event progressed and got higher in dimension as it did so.

My dissonance disappeared when I saw the fourth-chakra explosion as opening a portal. The portal was temporary and that goes along with it being at the third-dimensional level.

What happens after the initial explosion is a little like a trampoline or a safety net or a slingshot.  The device is elastic and is stretched but it doesn’t break and returns to its original form.  My experience of higher dimensionality stretched my experience of love but it was temporary and so it also receded.

Like a gigantic slingshot, how far we travel depends on how far the sling is bent. Trampoline, safety net – the same.

If I ended up in an Ocean of Love, then I must have jumped fairly high on the trampoline.  Once I say that to myself, the dissonance drains away.

The truth will set us free.

This is a good example of the truth being already known inside us. Of course it is. The Self, which knows the truth, is found inside us, in the heart, in the seat of the soul.

Whenever our everyday consciousness arrives at a truth, our insides respond by releasing us from bodily or muscular tension.

We could actually afford to ask our insides whether something is the truth or not and wait for its response. If it is, the truth will set us free.

My dissonance has disappeared. I feel more relaxed. I use this as proof of the accuracy of what I said, that fourth-chakra experiences are not complete in themselves but can be portals to a temporary experience of higher-dimensions.

(1) The same thing happened in 1987, which resulted in my leaving university.  After the vision that year, I knew I could no longer tolerate  shoehorning what I knew of reality into the confined box of empirical materialism (the belief that only what you see, hear, touch, etc., is real).

This is What We’re After – Steve Beckow

The Third Eye Sudakshina Bhattacharya by SuWaniArts @ Pixels

 *   *   *

This is What We’re After

As if watching a world in chaos and battling with Youtube censorship were not enough…

…love chooses this time to show up.

The second helping of love that I wanted to have? I now have.

Writing about it as it happens does moderate the experience somewhat, but my job is to write about it. Too much of the experience and I stop writing about it.

Love arose from nothing – naturally. One minute it was not there and the next moment it was. I remember becoming aware of a wisp of it and then I was entirely in it. (1)

Years ago love showed up like an onrushing inner tsunami. Now it shows up like an old friend, putting its arm around my shoulders and nestling in.

All fear drains away from me, all strain, all worry.

In the presence of this higher form of love, I feel totally safe, totally protected.

No, not my body. In the space of this love, I’m not worried about my body. The real me, the spirit within the body.

The mental/emotional state of that spirit is what I might worry about, if worry was possible in this sea of love. Which it isn’t.

***

Viewing things from this vantage point has all the doings of the world, all the cabal-created chaos fade from view. Whether pandemic or worse, love erases the memory of the pain and grief of it – but not the wonderful memories.

Years ago we’d have called being in this space of love, escapism. We’d be accused of having our head in the sand.

But we know, now, that one person or many people holding a vibration of this kind  for the entire planet can make a radical difference – in the collective consciousness (thoughts) and the collective psyche (feelings).

Rather than escapism, this is involvement with the planet and its inhabitants on a much more meaningful and intimate level than physical action might produce. I think.

***

It’s so hard to consider loving people who are so callous towards human life as we’ve seen recently. But seeing matters from this loving space has me solve that dilemma as well.

It isn’t that I need to love “these people.” It’s that I need to love.

This higher form of love is by its very nature universal. It flows and it flows in all directions. Love cannot be other than universal and still be love.

If I try to keep it away from someone, it disappears. I have to allow it to flow up from my heart, through me, and out to the world. Indiscriminately.

“I thy God am a jealous God.” God = Love. If we have any thoughts that are counter to love, love leaves. No forwarding address. No letter of regret.

So, no, I don’t have to include Ralph in my love over there. Thinking that way doesn’t match the way things are set up.

Yes, I do have to allow love to flow to whomever it will, Ralph, Mary, and the kid who stole my wallet.

The reward for me for allowing love to flow through me to everyone else, indiscriminately, is that I get to experience that love as it flows through me.

This space of love that I’m in at the moment is the solution to all our problems and dilemmas. THIS is what we’re after.

If God is Love, then we’ve found the treasure buried in the field. That treasure is the One; i.e., the deepest, transcendent Love. The field is the heart.

Footnotes

(1) That has happened before. I once saw Bliss as if it was a person across a crowded room and, immediately upon recognizing it as bliss, it filled me up. On another occasion, I saw a peaceful face pass by me as I rode a train out of the station. The minute I saw it, I recognized it as Peace and peace filled me up. Make simple inner eye contact with a divine state, or even just feel it, and it’ll fill you up immediately.

I’ve also on occasion ridden wisps of love or bliss like a surfboard into the higher state.

That Known, All is Known – Steve Beckow

That Known, All is Known

In this time of reflection, I notice that I know only a very few things for sure.

I know the purpose of life is enlightenment. The vision in 1987 etched that indelibly into my mind. (1)

I know the intellectual answer to the puzzle of who I am. The intellectual answer is that I am God, as are we all. (2)

There’s only One God, without a second; if we existed separate from God, there would be a second.

Everything that is and is not is God. Therefore we must also be God. Bodies, Light, all of it is a creation; all of it is God agreeing to play hide and seek in costume for the fun of it.

Notice how knowing that intellectually doesn’t take us very far.

What number of things known are we up to? Two?

I know what love is and I’m awed by it. I sit here awaiting my second helping, (3) prepared to wait as long as it takes. Please, please, mister, can I have seconds?

That’s three and I’m slowing down.

That’s all I know for certain.

The rest is all hearsay and speculation. Of what use is any of that?

What is it we’re looking for?

I can only answer that for myself: Love, bliss, joy.

The extent to which I experience those states seems related to knowing, to realizing just one thing: The true identity of my One and Only Self.

That known, all is known.

However, as a pillar, it isn’t mine to live in these states until after all have ascended. (4) But I invite others to live in them.

There’s only One. All else is ultimately illusion, including our seemingly-separate Self.  St Paul described the last minute of individuation before the Self (which he called the Son) merged again with God.

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power [ego].

“… And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” (5)

All of life is about realizing this Unity. But that too remains hearsay…. And how valuable is that?

The Necessity for Ascension to be a Gradual Affair – Steve Beckow

Samadhi Painting Opening to Light by Christina Gage @ Fine Art America

***

The Necessity for Ascension to be a Gradual Affair

I’d like a change of pace and  topic.

Out of the pandemic, many of us have been on lockdown and that’s given us plenty of time for reflection.

At the same time the energies are being steadily ratcheted up and sometimes it’s causing old issues to rise to the surface, like squeezing a tube of toothpaste.

Pandemic, energies, cabal takedown….  I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that I’ve been battling fatigue day after day.

I’m also in a reflective state of mind during lockdown. So, focusing on the rising energies,  I asked myself: What does it say that I should be so fatigued by a simple rise in energy?

What it says to me is that, if I’m bowled over by this amount of energy, can you imagine how I’d be blown apart if I jumped from here to Ascension itself, by which I mean Sahaja Samadhi, (1) in one go?

My body probably could not withstand the shock.

Look at how we (OK, I) complain about slight Ascension symptoms like fatigue. Imagine how we’d be complaining if we doubled the pace at which we’re ascending. Tripled the pace.

The hospitals would be flooded with people having what they regard as serious symptoms. The cabal and the mainstream media would be calling it “Ascension Sickness.”

We need the pace to be bearable, not only for us but for the billions on the planet who have no idea what might be happening.

Archangel Michael allows us one exception to going from here to Ascension in one go: “Visit; don’t stay,” he tells us. (2) He explained to me, as I’ve mentioned a few times, that I would not want to remain in service if I ascended.

To be sure, there are sudden events, seeded into our gradual timeframe. In my most mature opinion? They happen when the Mother and the archangels judge that we’re ready for them, consistent with our life’s plan.  They cement our progress.

They include heart openings (fourth chakra), third-eye openings (sixth chakra), and Shiva and Shakti’s reunion or Brahmajnana (seventh chakra).

And then comes the one event that can justifiably be called “the Event” – a full and permanent opening of the heart in Sahaja Samadhi, beyond the seven-chakra system.

If you need a marker, then I suggest this be it. By the time we have it, our hearts will have been tenderized to withstand and enjoy the explosive experience of love and bliss that awaits us.

That’s all. I just needed to talk about something other than the chaos occurring as Earth undergoes a change in planetary management.

Footnotes

(1) Sahaja Samadhi is a stage of enlightenment marked by a full and permanent heart opening. Sahaja means “natural.”

Because it results in a transition from Third/Fourth Dimensionality in which people live, die, and are reborn, it is called liberation from the wheel of birth and death.

Buddhists call it nirvana; Christians call it heaven. Buddhists call the stage of enlightenment it is Buddhahood; Christians salvation and redemption; Hindus, mukti, moksha, or liberation.

(2) Steve: Can you help me make sense of returning to my interdimensionality while not becoming a guru figure?

Archangel Michael:   It is very simple: Visit [the higher realms]; don’t stay.   (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, May 6, 2013.)

The Recovery Phase = Building Nova Earth – Steve Beckow

Pachamama Earth Mother ~ Soul Bird Art by Roberta Orpwood

🦋

The Recovery Phase = Building Nova Earth

In a reading I had with him on May 13, 2020, Archangel Michael asked me to turn my attention back again to Ascension matters.

Here are my marching orders:

“As I have said many times you’re not to engage in politics, sweet one. …

“Again, sweet one, you’re becoming engaged in political intrigue which is distracting you from the true process of Ascension. …

“It is important during this shift, during this time of new beginnings, yes, with the sweeping away of the old that you focus on the future, which is exactly what you are doing, and what I have guided you to do. …

“Remember that our undertaking is the tracking of spiritual evolution to a higher realm of consciousness and that is the focus that we must always return to. ” (1)

It was a good wakeup call. And I’ve given him permission to wake me up. Let me therefore return to my original mission – to offer a detailed vision of the future.

The main events have been blocked out. The Alliance is using the pandemic to launch clean-up operations against the cabal worldwide.

The cabal is fighting back with force in various places on, above, and below ground and on the Internet with censorship, false narratives, and diversionary tactics (paid trolls).

Ulterior motives in the pandemic’s creation – because it was created; it’s a bioweapon – are being revealed. Mandatory vaccines may be the next diversionary tactic.

There are those in the lightworker movement who are tasked with playing a role in these events.

At Michael’s request, I personally (and this does not apply to the other editors) am now leaving those events to blogs like Stillness in the Storm, Collective Evolution, Gateway Pundit, and Signs of the Times and concentrating on building the future and tracking our spiritual evolution.

***

For me, the Ascension matter of most urgency is recovery from the Pandemic and for me that recovery equates to  building Nova Earth.

Are we not at what we might conceive of as the darkest hour for many people? Is this not an important moment in time?

We face a struggle to rebuild. How many businesses will bounce back? How effective will the government be in getting money to the people without it being siphoned off by the cabal? When will we tackle the thorny issue of the redistribution of wealth on the planet?

Could there be a more urgent moment when a vision of where to go was needed?

I can’t think of one.

“Focus on the future, which is exactly what you are doing, and what I have guided you to do.”

***

Let me switch now to a vision of the future. How are we to build Nova Earth in the midst of the old Earth? And, Michael, you better help me with this one.

I continue the discussion I began in “Completing the Past and Working Together as a World.” (2) Later I’ll combine the two. Or three. Or however many discussions we’re having in bits and pieces.

 

1. The Recovery Phase = Building Nova Earth

There has never been a more opportune time for laying the foundation, infrastructure, and superstructure for Nova Earth than right now.

With countless millions of employees laid off and probably hundreds of thousands of businesses in danger of going under, we need an immediate rescue plan (for me, that would be the Six Point Plan) (3) and we need a long-term plan for planetary recovery that carries on after.

2. We need hard data

We need to know what the true situation of people is around the world and we need ways of keeping track of changes to them – through media uncontaminated by the cabal. We need to be able to transfer, store and display documents and films online safely and securely. And money.

We need search engines and the full range of social media that allow for free speech, short of hate and criminal speech.

3. We need to form citizen commissions similar to the International Tribunal for Natural Justice.

These citizen commissions or tribunals would begin a public process of truth and reconciliation in their field and award compensation if warranted.

When the parties have been reconciled, then the opportunity arises to discuss building new structures and processes for Nova Earth.

We’ll probably need a new system of governance, a new legal system, a new educational system, medicine, finance, on and on it goes.

The World Parliament of Religions is an example of an existing structure that might be interested in discussing building a new world in their area: the area of religion.

I’d suggest a baseline commitment be gotten from everyone concerned that all systems arrived at be built on love, from love, and through love. Nothing else will last.

4. We need to arrive at a citizen plan for building a new world

Then we need people to draw the suggestions of all commissions together and begin devising a plan for world recovery and reconstitution.

In the meantime, I’m not waiting for all of this to happen. I’m enrolled in building Nova Earth now and thus am beginning the discussion.

Taking a Stand: We Will Make It Across the Finish Line Together – Steve Beckow

The Book of Life – a colourful metal art sculpture by David Kracov that depicts a book dissolving into butterflies

🦋

Taking a Stand: We Will Make It Across the Finish Line Together

I feel like taking stock and even reminiscing, in these relaxed times of lockdown. I’d just like to let things flow for a change, not knowing where we’ll get to. Just sharing….

It’s interesting following, and sometimes covering, what’s happening in the external world right now. It’s challenging … for me.

While I build databases with quotes from celestial and galactic sources and do so from the printed word, our news sources today are very often video and always terrestrial.

I’m never going to be able to report on it in the way I can with printed channeled messages.

I reminisce….

I’ve had a lifelong – and more than a lifelong – love affair with the written word. I had a past life associated with the Gutenberg printing press.  I don’t want to get into puffery, but I’ve had a long association with writing and publishing. I even love the feel of books.

Reporting on largely medical matters in a climate of crisis from video sources is not really my forté. If I do it, I do it as an interested and “intelligent user,” not somehow as an “expert,” which I’m not.

What I’d far rather report on is the gathering momentum among people to unite and say “no” to the New World Order.  Not to criminalize the NWO as human souls but to draw a line around their criminal activities.

We faced the pandemic together and now we face the recovery together. And recover we must. In my opinion, we’d be unwise to forget the lesson of history, that jobless recoveries from recessions were used as a means of shedding workers made obsolete by automation in the 1980s and avoiding fiscal obligation in the matter. Let’s not do it again.

UBIs, universal medicare, universal accessibility, etc., financed with sequestered Illuminati wealth. We have the answer. (1) We now need the collective political will to do it.

***

When the pandemonium gets too much for me, my response, as we discussed earlier, (2) is to get bigger. To rise above it and take a bird’s-eye view.

In that earlier article, I gave a process using imagination to get me into a synoptic frame of mind. I got bigger than the Earth.

Another alternative would be to look for commonalities, universals.

I start to identify them. A need for money, food, shelter, medical care.

To see the commonalities, I have to draw back from the particulars of the situation. It moves me to see things from a more contextual, higher perspective than I did before.

And, as I do so, I settle into the role of observer again. And the pandemonium settles down.

***

All of this is my search for the solid and balanced part of myself in the midst of chaos.

And, as I do so, I see that I’m only being lazy.

The real strength lies in my will.

I know that.

The only reason I don’t resort to my will is that I’m enjoying myself. Or anticipating better times. I’m plugged in to seeking pleasure and avoiding pain, which I know to be Third-Dimensional.

I stop resisting the exercise of my will. I do what I’ve been taught to do: Take a stand.

What is my stand here?

My stand is that we will, as one united human society, navigate through the rough seas ahead and arrive on the distant shore in the greatest possible safety – and arrive together. (3) We’re in this together. We’re pulling together. Q says it best: “Where we go one, we go all.” Exactly.

Not only are we going to make it across the finish line together, but that there will be a finish to it all (war, trafficking, corruption, etc.) is also my stand.

(2) See “The Big Change – Part 2,” , at https://goldenageofgaia.com/2020/05/09/the-big-change-part-2/

(3) In answer to a reader’s question, mine is a stand that our efforts will be aimed at as many people making it across the finish line as possible.

Some will choose not to go because their service contracts are complete and they’d prefer to ascend from the other side. We wouldn’t interfere there.

Others will not achieve the necessary vibrational level to survive in higher dimensions. They’d be precluded for natural, vibrational reasons. Those whom we can help, we’ll help. Those that we can’t will not ascend at this time.

But among those who qualify and want to ascend from this realm, my stand is that we will do whatever it takes to make it across the finish line together. We won’t allow the cabal’s efforts to succeed in sabotaging Ascension or our recovery from Covid-19 and any toxic vaccine.

Ascension is a Process – Steve Beckow

Ascension by Digitalcutti @ DeviantArt

Ascension is a Process

We talk about Ascension as if it were an “Event.”

There are events that are components of Ascension, but Ascension itself is not a single event, but a process comprised of several events.

I recently quoted Archangel Michael on the matter. For me, the quote is appropriate to all of us:

“You have been given bite-sized pieces of energy, of energy bumps, of input of what you can digest and handle and truly bring to fruition. If you are in the process of expansion, you don’t go from Grade 3 to a PhD in a week.” (1)

In my opinion, we’re all of us being given “bite-sized pieces of energy, of energy bumps, of input of what you can digest and handle and truly bring to fruition.” As a world, we don’t go from Grade 3 to a Ph.D. in a week.

We go up Jacob’s Ladder of Consciousness, one step at a time. The Kundalini mounts the sushumna canal and, at various stops along the way, we experience progressively-deeper instances of enlightenment. We experience:

  • Stream entering or spiritual awakening when the Kundalini reaches the fourth chakra.
  • Cosmic consciousness or savikalpa samadhi (trance condition with forms) when it reaches the sixth
  • God-Realization or Brahmajnana (trance condition without forms; i.e., transcendental) when it reaches the seventh.
  • Ascension proper or Sahaja Samadhi (full and permanent heart opening, trance condition in natural state) when it goes beyond the chakra system and opens the heart aperture or hridayam permanently.

These are steps on the ladder, the stairway to heaven, the celestial staircase. But there is a ladder, stairway, or staircase. We don’t suddenly leap from the ground floor to the second floor like the incredible Hulk. Not yet, anyways.

The Arcturian Group put the case succinctly:

“The world is moving into a new and higher energy but cannot do it overnight nor can an exact date be determined because the consciousness of mankind is creating it. There is a great deal of assistance to Earth at this time from the higher dimensional realms, but free will determines that mankind must do the work.

“The third dimension is a dimension of time and space. If an individual were to suddenly be infused with the fullness of high dimensional energy their physical body would not be able to handle it and would die.

“Spiritual evolution is a gradual awakening into higher awareness through experience, receptivity to change, and the acceptance of one’s innate personal power.” (2)

Archangel Michael confirmed their assertions:

“What you want is the full wave and you will get it. But the Mother is preparing people for it so that they do not end up completely overwhelmed.” (3)

Blossom’s Federation of Light agree:

“Deep within your Being … you are so much more than you are able to recognize at this stage of The Game.

“The unraveling process is a slow one, for it needs to be…. As more and more of ‘Self’ is FELT and acknowledged, then more and more ‘Enlightenment’ can be more and more forthcoming.” (4)

We speak about “the Event” the way we speak about “the Reval.” It focuses things and makes them easier to handle.

I think it’s basic to the human condition, as it is at present, to want to arrive at a single notion that encapsulates many events. But that practice is counterproductive if and when it obscures the events it encapsulates.

“The Event” can obscure the many events that comprise the whole of what “Ascension” points to.

Ascension is a slow expansion, marked by several enlightenment events, culminating in one door-opening event. However we cannot get to that door opener without first going through the other experiences or events.

Hands on the Dials of Enlightenment

Sorry. I need to allow my mind to wander past the pandemic. I’d like some inspiration.

What I write is every bit as much guidance and inspiration for me as it may be for anyone else.  I seldom know what “I” am going to write next.

To begin with, what is your spiritual path?

My spiritual path, as most readers probably know, is the awareness path. The fundamental agreement is to remain aware of myself in all my phases and activities. (1)

In choosing it, I had to take into account my preference that my path be portable.  So no rituals that would require me to cart around a lot of baggage.  Nothing that’d be dependent on location or time. I needed to be able to engage in it wherever I was, whenever I wanted to.

It also had to be something that promised to lead to enlightenment.

Have people, in fact, attained enlightenment by the awareness path?

Many, many sages.

The Buddha attained enlightenment by Vipassana meditation, which focuses awareness on sensations on the body. The aim is to reach a point where awareness has dissolved all the sensations and the mind is quiet. This was enough to carry the Buddha from Brahmajnana (seventh-chakra enlightenment) to what he called Nirvana (what we call Ascension).

Awareness worked for Bodhidharma, who emptied his mind by staring at a blank wall and remaining aware of what arose.  Zen masters used awareness to achieve enlightenment. Awareness is at the heart of Taoism.

Ramana Maharshi’s Self-Enquiry and the Growth Movement of the 1970s were all about self-awareness.

What’s the difference between “awareness” and “presence”?

For me, “awareness” and “presence” are the same thing. One cannot be present and not aware. One cannot be aware and not present.

It’s an educated guess on my part that one must be here now (be present or aware) to trigger enlightenment.

That having been said, it’s also my considered opinion that awareness is not the only thing going on around our enlightenment.

Another factor is that the Mother and our team of guides play a very large role in everything to do with our experiences of enlightenment. This is not something that’s widely taught, but it follows from my own history.

How many times have I heard the Mother and Michael say that they toned down an enlightenment experience so that I wouldn’t leave the path of service?  Fourth-chakra, seventh-chakra and even seventh-dimensional experiences were all toned down.  (2) This proves that they manage our enlightenment experiences.

I define as enlightenment any experience triggered when the Kundalini reaches at least the fourth chakra. It’s the Mother and our guides who moderate it, like technicians operating a hydroelectric dam.” Increase the flow.” “Cut back now.” Hands on the dials of enlightenment.

I further define enlightenment as realization plus bliss. In a truncated experience, the bliss is usually missing. Being aware of that, one sees that it’s the bliss that lends realization its potency.

Bliss lifts us up to a vibrational level where the realization is … orgasmic, really; where it can work its full effect, sink in the deepest, and touch us most profoundly.

Without bliss, realization is more or less like watching a movie. It lacks potency, the force to have us fully reap the benefit of it.

Where is all this headed?

The whole game of life that the Mother and the archangels are assisting us with is about awareness. To see why this is so obliges us to remember the purpose of life.

The purpose of life is for us to become aware of our true identity. (I’ll say why in a moment.)

Sure, I can tell you what that is. But intellectual knowledge is not very powerful. The answer is: Your true identity is God. Now did hearing that split the atom for you? Not unless you blissfully realized it, rather than just reading it.

Why does it matter that I learn my true identity?

Because every time a person realizes that they’re God, God meets God in that moment. God has the experience of Itself when we realize our true identity. For the purpose of this meeting was everything created – for us to get who we truly are and for God to have an experience of Itself.

Discovering our true essence is an exercise in awareness which results in certain knowledge.  And it’s knowledge that is the end of the road, the goal of all experience. (3)

I personally think that every experience including and past the fourth chakra is one of these moments in which God has an experience of at least an aspect of Itself.

It might be a vision experience. It might be a heart opening. It might be an experience of Light. Whatever it is, we realize an aspect of God – probably a “bite-sized piece” – so that we’re not overwhelmed. (3) Even the overall process of enlightenment itself – in which each isolated experience is sudden – can as a whole be seen as gradual.

To summarize, my path takes as its object the event and process that takes us to the very heart of existence – awareness. It sets its sights on becoming aware of who we truly are, in service to the God we meet in that moment.

Footnotes

(1) The mainstream media mocked us as the “Me Generation,” as if self-awareness leads to selfishness. In fact it leads to increasing freedom from core issues, greater openness of heart, and increased compassion for others.

(2) Fourth-Chakra Intervention

Steve: The [fourth-chakra sight of the Self] experience at Xenia, Mother, was that truncated?

Divine Mother: Slightly, yes.

Steve: I had the thought [it was]. … The Light I saw should have been brighter than a thousand suns. The fact that it wasn’t suggests to me that the experience was truncated.  …

DM: It was not is brilliant as possible, let us put it that way.

Steve: Alright… And again, the reason is to keep me in sync with my readers?

DM: It is to keep you in sync with your readers…  But let me be very clear about that. If you had seen the light as it actually is, yes, a million, billion suns… you would have simply departed. …We don’t mean die but you would have departed the life that you have designed – yes, with us, for yourself, for the service you are providing – you would have departed and simply said, “I do not need to do this. I will just simply sit in the bliss of love and good luck, everybody!” (Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 26, 2018.)

Seventh-Chakra Intervention

Steve: [Emptiness of mind] was followed next by what appeared to be the kundalini completing its circuit at the seventh chakra. Is that in fact what happened?

AAM: Yes. Now it is part of the reset button. Think of it in this way. If you are installing, say, a new program, or you had an old program that kept stalling out three quarters of the way full and you were frustrated as all get out with it. And you are asking for the fullness of the program to come online so you turn off your computer and you restart it.

That is what you did.

Steve: Hmm, interesting! Ordinarily you would experience Brahmajnana at that point but I felt that it had been muted, toned down.

AAM: When you use the term “dramatic enlightenment experiences”[as I did earlier],  you are talking about Nirvana. You are talking about the unity of all with One.

It is not to say that you will not experience that, but you cannot (well, you can if you wish; it is a choice to) simply remain in that state of unity, of One, and be fully conscious, in service, in action….

So, it is a toning down, if anything. It really is the middle ground. …

You know that enlightenment is right there in front of you. It is yours to access. But if you are in service, you will not choose to live there. …

You can think of it as keeping two feet firmly on the ground. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Feb. 14, 2012. Hereafter AAM.)

Seventh-Dimensional Intervention

Steve Beckow: I had an experience at a meditation workshop in which I felt regal. It was a partial experience. Can you tell me what that part of me was that I accessed.

Archangel Michael: … Your highest Self, your Oversoul, is very regal.

SB: So that was an experience of the Oversoul.

AAM: Yes.  (AAM, Sept. 13, 2011.)

The Arcturians through Sue Lie: Seventh is your Oversoul. (Arcturians, March 17, 2013.)

On Truncation in General/Reason Why Ascension is Gradual

Steve: Now, when an experience is truncated how am I to look upon it? That you wish me to write about it as far as I have experienced it? That we’re illustrating things in bite-size chunks so as not to overload people? That you don’t want us to be fully ascended because we’ll stop fulfilling this service contract if we are?

Archangel Michael: What you have seen is that you have been given bite-sized pieces of energy, of energy bumps, of input of what you can digest and handle and truly bring to fruition. If you are in the process of expansion, you don’t go from Grade 3 to a PhD in a week. (“Archangel Michael on Truncated Experiences,” March 21, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/03/21/aam-on-truncated-experiences/.)

What Michael has just said, I assert, holds true for all our Ascensions. We’re being given small servings of energy to digest and manifest. They know we cannot jump from Grade 3 to a Ph.D. in a single bound. This is why Ascension is for the most part gradual, with some sudden “energy bumps.”

(3) Which is why discrimination is so important. But that’s a separate conversation.

(4) To repeat: “You have been given bite-sized pieces of energy, of energy bumps, of input of what you can digest and handle and truly bring to fruition. If you are in the process of expansion, you don’t go from Grade 3 to a PhD in a week.” (“Archangel Michael on Truncated Experiences,” ibid.)

My Chosen Ideal

If it isn’t part of the Divine Plan that each of us should have a chosen ideal, I’m going to suggest it to God next time I speak to her.

Hindus have a tradition of worshipping a “Chosen ideal” – Krishna, Shiva, the Divine Mother, and so on.

For the record, my own chosen ideals are Sri Ramakrishna in his earthly life and Archangel Michael on the other side.

But one doesn’t need to have a chosen ideal in avatars and archangels. One can have a chosen ideal in almost anything, eh?

Well, I was in the shower … as always, one of my shower moments … and I had this realization about me and my chosen ideal in life, my chosen way of being, existence and interface with the world.

The realization was that: I was not living in Love.

Oh my Gawd. It was true. I live in lots of other spaces, but not in love. No blame attached. Just what’s so.

I got at that moment that living in love was my chosen ideal among ways of being to choose from.

Without love, what’s left? Happiness is the best it gets. That’s Ok, but not a home run.

Don’t forget that, with the heart opening of 2015 (now subsided), I crossed a bridge between not knowing what real, authentic, higher-dimensional love was to knowing. I actually know what love is now. Once crossed over, one never forgets something like that.

And I’m not living in it. Factor in that my short-term memory remains atrocious so I’m in the shower, racing to get to the computer before all this passes into the sea of forgetfulness.

I am not living in love – and I realize it. I can’t hide its full implications from myself any longer.

In 1976, six weeks into a three-month encounter group at Cold Mountain Institute, I got, as a realization, that I was out of touch with my feelings. I ran down the path, shouting at the top of my lungs, I’m out of touch with my feelings.  It was a watershed moment.

This one is too. I’ve talked about this on other occasions, but from an intellectual standpoint. I’ve said that the experience of love has subsided. I’ve said that I can still get wisps of it, that are fulfilling – which remains true. I’ve said I’ll never forget what I learned. All very wistful. But no love there.

But I get it now at the level of realization: I am not living in love.

Oh my heavens.

Immediately the question arises: Well, why not?

Moksha, Mukti, or Liberation – Steve Beckow

Transcendence ~ Artist Susan Seddon Boulet

***

Moksha, Mukti, or Liberation

I’ve been asked to explain the relationship between Ascension and Sahaja Samadhi. What do the religions call Ascension? I’m delighted to. It’d give me a good break from viral news (pun intended).

Free book from an earlier age (before the virus) attached, below.

I believe that what New Agers call Ascension is the same as what Vedantists call  Sahaja, Jesus called Salvation and Redemption, and the Buddha called Buddhahood. It represents departure from the Third/Fourth Dimension and accession to the Fifth, leaving behind the 3D wheel of birth and death. (1)

Sahaja is beyond the seven-chakra system. Brahmajnana is a seventh-chakra enlightenment event but it’s still within the Third/Fourth-Dimensional matrix.

In the Buddha’s language, the aspirant would not have left the wheel of birth and death, what the New Age would call the Third/Fourth Dimension. The aspirant is still an arahant (what Hindus would call a jnani or Brahmajnani) and not yet a buddha (or vijnani).

I always wondered at a passage in Da Free John, when his chakra system fell away. When I first read it, I could not believe his account.  What is he saying? This proves it. Da Free John has lost it.

But now I believe it. He said:

“In February I passed through an experience that seemed to vindicate my understanding. … I saw that what appeared as the sahasrar, the terminal [or crown] chakra and primary lotus in the head, had been severed. The sahasrar had fallen off like a blossom. The Shakti, which previously had appeared as a polarized energy that moved up and down through the various chakras or centers producing various effects, now was released from the chakra form.

“There was no more polarized force. Indeed, there was no form whatsoever, no up or down, no chakras. The chakra system had been revealed as unnecessary, an arbitrary rule or setting for the play of energy. The form beneath all of the bodies, gross or subtle, had revealed itself to be as unnecessary and conditional as the bodies themselves. …

“Now I saw that reality or real consciousness was not in the least determined by any kind of form apart from itself. Consciousness had shown its radical freedom and priority in terms of the chakra form. It had shown itself to be senior to that whole structure, dissociated from every kind of separate energy or Shakti. There was simply consciousness itself, prior to all forms, all dilemmas, every kind of seeking and necessity.” (2)

The chakra system was itself shown to be appropriate only to the Third Dimension.

We have the Divine Mother’s own confirmations of various spiritual verities; in this case, that Sahaja is Ascension and that, as Da Free John’s comments imply, it lies beyond the seven-chakra system:

Steve Beckow: I’m trying to understand what level of enlightenment Ascension corresponds to. And I think it’s beyond the normal seventh-chakra enlightenment. I think it is what is called — and I’ll make this clear to readers — Sahaja Samadhi. Am I correct?

Divine Mother: Yes, it is beyond what you think of [as] your seven chakras. … We have emerged from the Third-Dimensional realm, which is that reference point for the chakra system, into the new. So yes, you are correct, in this question and in this statement. 
 (3)

So whether we look at Hinduism or Buddhism, Christianity or the New Age, Ascension is behind the various names – Sahaja, Buddhahood, Redemption – but it is known.

Having spent some time in 2015 in the love that is the essence of the higher dimensions, I can confirm what so many sources say, that we can’t imagine what awaits us. It will fulfill all our dreams.

It is a full and permanent heart opening, entry into the Fifth Dimension, and a leaving of the Third Dimension’s wheel of birth and death. It is submergence in an Ocean of Love. It is what Sri Krishna or the Buddha would know as moksha, mukti, or liberation.

This is the event that we’re slowly and by stages working up to, with peaks of enjoyment along the way.

ASCENSION: HOW DO WE KNOW? – PART 2/2 – Narendra Mishra

~

In Part 1 of this article, we looked at the first source of our knowledge of planetary ascension- that of the modern sages and scholars. In this article we will look at the second source of our information, entities that are not of this world.
Communication with other-worldly sources is by no means normal for most people. In fact, such communications may in many instances be associated with abnormal mental health. However, as psychology professor Jon Klimo has indicated, there are some instances of other-worldly communication that cannot be explained away as mental health issues. (1)

These instances may be classed as a phenomena called channelling. In his authoritative textbook, Klimo has defined this strange phenomena as follows:

“Channeling is the communication of information to or through a physically embodied human being from a source that is said to exist on some other level of dimension or reality as we know it, and is not from the normal mind (or self) of the channel.” (2)

There are some important points in his definition that I examined in another article. For our purposes we will only look at one here- the fact that the interaction involves a source that exists on some other level of dimension or reality as we know it.

These sources I term ‘other-worldly’ and in this category Klimo includes both physical extra-terrestrial entities, as well as non-physical, spiritual entities.

According to Klimo’s definition several of the world’s major religious scriptures contain channeled information. The receiving of the Ten Commandments by Moses constitutes a channeling experience. Likewise, the interaction between Prophet Muhammad and the angel Gabriel is also a channeling experience. The primary scriptures of the Hindus, the Vedas are also called Srutis- referring to the receiving of channeled information by the saints and sages of India.

Regarding planetary ascension, one such other-worldly source, Archangel Michael through Ronna Vezane, tells us of the planetary age that we are now entering,

“Know this, my brave ones, you are in the final stages of a specific unit of time, and you all have been subjected to a unique system of rules. We are repeating and emphasizing this information, for it is vitally important that you understand this concept within the new Universal Laws of the Age of Aquarius.”

Another otherworldly source, Matthew who speaks from the afterlife, said in 2012,

“It is Earth’s destiny to leave third density [ascend] when a universal cycle opens an astral window at the end of this year, and by then no one with a dark mind and heart will be left on the planet.”

As we have seen in Part 1 of this article, the end of 2012 was an important date encoded in the long-count calendar of the ancient Mayans.

Yet another otherworldly source is Ra whose civilisation is claimed to have developed in Venus around 2.6 billion years ago.* Ra was channeled in the 1981 by Carla Rueckert during full trance channeling sessions, and questioned by physicist Don Elkins. During the first session, Ra was asked of their purpose in establishing communications with the group and responded thus,

“We are old upon your planet and have served with varying degrees of success in transmitting the Law of One, of Unity, of Singleness to your peoples. We have walked your earth. We have seen the faces of your peoples. This is not so with many of the entities of the [Galactic] Confederation. We found it was not efficacious. However, we then felt the great responsibility of staying in the capacity of removing the distortions and powers that had been given to the Law of One. We will continue in this until your, shall we say, cycle is appropriately ended. If not this one, then the next. We are not a part of time and, thus, are able to be with you in any of your times.” [Note: my emphasis in bold]

In another session Ra gave an estimation of when the present cycle will terminate- approximately 30 years from 1981- a figure that works to be around 2012.

“6. 16 Questioner: What is the position of this planet with respect to progression of the cycle at this time?
Ra: I am Ra. This sphere is at this time in fourth-dimension vibration. Its material is quite confused due to the society memory complexes embedded in its consciousness. It has not made an easy transition to the vibrations which beckon. Therefore, it will be fetched with some inconvenience.

6.17 Questioner: Is this inconvenience imminent within a few years?
Ra: I am Ra. This inconvenience, or disharmonious vibratory complex, has begun several of your years in the past. It shall continue unabated for a period of approximately three oh, thirty [30], of your years.

6.18 Questioner: After this thirty-year period I am assuming we will be a fourth-dimension or fourth-density planet. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is so.”

This last statement meshes perfectly with that made by Matthew earlier in this article. At the end of this cycle, earth leaves the third density and enters the fourth density.

There are many more credible channels who tell us from their sources that the planetary cycle is at a crucial stage, and we are entering into a new age at this time period. This section of this article has simply aimed to provide a small cross-sample of such information.

In conclusion, I have sought in this article to provide evidence of Ascension from two distinct sources- terrestrial saints and scholars, and other-worldly sources derived from channeling. This information is not covered by the mainstream media (for various reasons) but there exists a wealth of credible and authenticated information available for the interested reader to explore. I hope that this article will catalyse such research.

Ascension: How Do We Know? Part 1/2 – Narendra Mishra

Artist ~ Amanda Sage, with gratitude

Ascension: How Do We Know? Part 1/2

What is Ascension?

https://awakeningspark.com/blog/ascension-how-do-we-know-part-12

Ascension is Self-Realisation or God-Realisation. It is termed ‘ascension’ because the soul ascends from manhood to Godhood. It results in the freedom or liberation of the individual soul from the cycle of birth and death called reincarnation.

For many centuries, the striving for ascension has been an intensely personal one. The aspirant would usually join a monastic order, or retire in caves, mountains, forests, or other secluded areas to dedicate his/her entire life to its pursuit.

This time however, ascension is different. Now the Earth Herself, as a living conscious being with a planetary body, is ascending and taking all Her inhabitants with her. Almost all incarnated souls on earth, including humans, animals, plants, and minerals now have the opportunity to participate in a mass planetary ascension without taking recourse to a life of renunciation.

How do we know about Ascension?

All that we know about planetary ascension comes from two main sources. The first is from modern, terrestrial saints and scholars, and the second is from otherworldly sources through a process called channeling. We will examine the first source in part 1 of this article and look at otherworldly sources in part 2.

Let us look at a few examples of saints and sages who have spoken about this time of planetary ascension. Sri Sri Yukteswar Giri was perhaps one of the most authoritative personages who advocated planetary ascension. In his seminal book, The Holy Science, he attributed ascension to the natural cycle of the ages, which follows an astronomical phenomena known as the precession of the equinoxes.

In this model, the axial tilt of the earth revolves at a rate of approximately 1 revolution every 24,000 years*. During this time there is a variation in the amount of cosmic radiation coming to earth from the centre of the galaxy. This cosmic radiation has profound effects upon the mind and consciousness of all life on earth.

During the time of maximum cosmic radiation, mankind’s intellect and spiritual progress is at its peak. As the earth’s orbit proceeds, the amount of cosmic radiation available decreases, and along with it, mankind’s intellectual and spiritual capacity. At its minimum, mankind enters into its dark age.

Following this model, there are thus a period of four ages, called yugas, that mankind lives through. These are modelled in the diagram below.

The top of the diagram shows the period of time when cosmic radiation is at its maximum. This gives rise to the Satya Yuga, or golden age. As the axial revolution of the earth proceeds the amount of cosmic radiation gradually diminishes culminating in the dark ages, or the Kali Yuga, at its nadir.

​According to Sri Sri Yukteshwar Giri’s calculations, the Kali Yuga is already finished and we are now in a ‘transitional age’ within an ascending arc back to the Satya Yuga or golden age. Several other notable saints and scholars have also asserted that we are now living through a great shift in the ages. Some of these include Sadguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, Dr. N. S. Rajaram, and Dr. David Frawley.

Consider for example a statement by Dr. Frawley,

“An important cosmic event is occurring now. The winter solstice is now at the point of conjunction with the Galactic Centre. There is some doubt as to the exact location of this point. I would replace it at 6° 40′ Sagittarius, or the middle of the Nakshatra Mula. Depending upon the ayanamsha one uses, this conjunction may be occurring either right now, or in the next few decades. The same event appears mirrored in the calendric calculations of the Maya, a culture that shared many practices with the Vedic people.

This indicates a harmonisation of humanity with the Divine Will as transmitted from the galactic center. The new spiritual thinking of today may be a result of this attunement process, which insists that we enter into a new ascending age of light and cast off the shadows of the dark ages of strife and dissension. Though some global shock and suffering must be endured, the outcome can only be ultimately for the good.

We should have faith in the Divine Will behind this process and not give in to the despair that the present state of the world must evoke in us. Though we may not be quickly ushered into an Age of Enlightenment, much positive growth will occur. A shift in history as significant as any to date will be experienced, with a movement from darkness to light and a new seeking of consciousness.” (1)

Some of the other evidence that these distinguished individuals have produced in support of their claim are documented in my article The End of The Dark Age.

It is important to note here that other than saints and scholars, several ancient cultures knew of the grand cycle of 26,000 years. Perhaps the most famous of these are the  Mayans who knew of the end of this age and encoded it in their long-count calendar. The date that their major cycle of the ages ended was December 21, 2012.

Concluded in Ascension: How Do We Know? Part 2/2.

And It Just Gets Better – Steve Beckow

Canadian Gray Jay ~ Paul Reeves Photography – Thinkstock

***

And It Just Gets Better

As a pillar, I’m here to the end. If I contract Coronavirus and die, well … I guess that’s the end.

 

Well, I’m having fun in the new discussion groups. It’s offering me an outlet for my desire to share and read others’ shares.

We’re waiting for you to join us. No need to keep your social distance in here. And you don’t need to dress up. Come as you are!

Let’s have a tribal council in there. Some serious discussion. Where two or more are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

That’s what I hope will happen.

Here’s my first post in the Life After Death subgroup. I’ve added a fair amount to it.

In 1977 my fear of death left me when I saw that I was not my body as a result of an out-of-body experience.

I awoke in a lucid dream, finding myself in a land which I knew must be another dimension.

Some young men were abusing a friend of mine. They were just being mean to him, nothing serious.

I asked them to stop but they couldn’t see or hear me. I was frustrated, aghast, angry and began to cry. When no one could hear me, I began to wail.

Well, you can’t have a serious emotional outburst on the other side without needing to fall back a level. When you’re outside your body, falling back means returning to your body.

I found myself whizzing through space, backwards, as if my Mother had grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and was hauling me away.

I experienced myself entering into a very large wet suit. I tapped on its outer walls and realized it was my body. I was re-entering my body. Oh my gosh!

For a while I remained inside it, not aware of what was happening on the outside – not looking through its eyes or smelling through its nose. Not operating any of the bells and whistles of this wet suit that I was comfortably inside of. Looking back on it, I think my spirit body was much smaller than my physical body. It was like being inside a small room.

At first I experienced myself inside it and then slowly and almost imperceptibly, my senses shifted to the outside. The body’s walls were as resistant as India rubber (like a car tire or a lacrosse ball).

I saw that as the result of what happened to me when my consciousness shifted from inside to outside.

All this time I was still wailing. We experience emotions like sorrow much more acutely in the spirit body than we do in the physical. When my faculties had switched from inside to outside, the wail became a whimper. The wail could not get through the India rubber of my body.

That showed me how non-conductive the physical body was compared to the spirit. That demonstration has never left me. It had a terrific impact.

This physical body may as well be a non-conductor of emotions, compared to the feather-soft spirit body I was in – etheric, astral, I know not.

Well, if I’m not my body and my body is just a Superman suit I’m wearing, what’s there about death to be afraid of? I’ve seen where we go and I’ve seen my body as different from me. In the face of that truth, the fear of death disintegrated! It disappeared, never to return.

Fear (false events appearing real) cannot survive the truth. (1) If the fear is shown to have a false basis, the ground falls out from under it and it ceases to exist.

Our fear vanishes immediately when we realize that we (the spirit inside the body) will not die if the body dies.

So all that’d happen to me if this body died from CV-19 is that I’d step outside it as I would my clothing and keep on going. And it just gets better.

Footnotes

(1) I fear the death of the body, normally, because I fear that that will be the death of “me” as well. Because I am the body. Without the body I do not exist.

But I saw that none of that was true. That’s old-style thinking. I am not identical with my body. I am not dependently-functioning part of the body. I and the body are two, not one.

That’s the only separation that is probably acceptable. I am not my body.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! See You at the Discussion Group!

The Forum can be reached here: https://goldenageofgaia.com/forums-home/

Suzi has just announced the Forum that she’s been working on since Christmas.

Not since she hosted Heavenly Blessings has she been “on the air,” so to speak.

This is exciting – probably for her and definitely for me.

I was so excited the other day – because we were getting close – that I behaved like a seven-year-old, asking “Are we there yet?”

I’m excited because it takes me back to my roots.

This blog started out as a discussion group, Galactic Roundtable, founded to provide a forum for the intel briefings of former Naval Commander Mark Huber.

Some readers probably remember it. I believe I wrote a column there as well. (1)

I think a discussion group will provide a depth to what we’re building together that a blog-only cannot provide.

What did I love about a discussion group? Belongingness. I belonged somewhere.  Family. Friendship. Compassion.

The moderators, some of whom still operate its successor, were marvellous. Those were my best friendships. We still keep in touch.

In the meantime, reading the posts was like my morning pick-me-up and meet-up.

This was my group and we were travelling together. (2)

***

I was on discussion groups all the way back … get ready … to the dial-in bulletin boards. Remember? Spiritual bulletin boards, 9/11 and depleted-uranium forums, and finally I started my own Yahoo! discussion group in service to Mark.

What do I like about groups? The community that forms around one provides instant feedback and strong emotional support for stepping out. You develop community, friendships, a shoulder to cry on, a willing ear. It’s the best features of family.

The Hope Chest got started because a person on a bulletin board needed $6,000 to get the mercury out of her fillings (she still posts on the group’s successor). She was developing a serious disease from it.

I asked the readers of the blog, “Do you want to do this?” And one man, Les M. from the Mid-West, sent in a cheque for $1,000 and at that moment I knew we were a go. I’ll never forget that moment, Les.  That group was my family.

So I will be lurking.  I’ll try to keep up with the daily conversation. I can’t afford to unleash a wave of questions, as I’m sure you know. I had 46 emails left to answer at 6 PM on a Sunday. Add to that Skype, Text Messages, etc., and the impact on a reclusive writer is enough to invite another hospital stay, super-bug thrown in to keep me there. (3)

But I will luuuurrrrkkkkk.

See you there tomorrow!

Footnotes

(1) Predictable things happen in a group. Some people tried to take control of ours.  Others monopolized the conversation. Still others were not credible in the roles they were playing. But those things got ironed out.  A group has a dynamic and a cycle.  Oh, I did graduate work in Sociology in small groups. I love groups.

(2) And then I got sick with colitis (I was in voluntary quarantine then too) and could no longer run the group. So the moderators took over and helped me learn WordPress and … start a blog, the 2012 Scenario, which became the Golden Age of Gaia.

(3) Steve: Did you bring on the onset of MSSA (Methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus) to have me relax and just spend some time in the hospital?

AAM: Yes.

Steve: I thought you did! Oh, boy. That is so funny!

AAM: There is a part of you, even when we suggested to you that timeout was required that doesn’t know what that means.

Steve: Yes, that’s right. That’s why you called me “wildcard” to [Blue Star], right?

AAM: Yes and your Higher Self, your Universal Self has given permission for these overrides.  [I’ve already given him permission myself.]

Steve: I thought it was funny when it happened. I could see your hand in it. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Nov. 26, 2019.)

If I hadn’t caught a superbug, I might have been out of the hospital in a week. Instead my stay went on for something like three weeks. Don’t think an archangel won’t intervene in your life. If it’s for your wellbeing and the Plan, they will.

Moving Us to Higher-Dimensional Consciousness? – Steve Beckow

Awakening by Tracy Lewis Art Studio

💗

Moving Us to Higher-Dimensional Consciousness?

The universe seems to be pushing us to be loving and flowing. That’s the life pattern of the higher dimensions. And that’s what CV-19 is calling out of us.

Flow

Flow is the structure, the process, the milieu, the pattern of life in the higher dimensions. That’s an assertion I make having spent time in them (Fifth to Seventh). (1)

Compared to them, we’re like statues.  We don’t flow.

We proceed at a snail’s pace, checking in with our desires, assessing the situation, weighing the probabilities, etc., before we even take a step.

The amount of detail coming at us as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic is enough unto itself to keep us off-balance. The weight of the tragedies being visited on society – people dying, out of work, closing down their livelihoods – is also overwhelming. We cannot meet the challenge from an overwhelmed mind.

Covid-19 is bringing the necessity of flow to us if we’re to weather this state of overwhelm. That’s the first thing I want to point to.

Love

Second thing. Everyone in the higher dimensions exists in a state of love. They’re bathed in love.

They’re blessed with an inner tsunami of love, in the face of which no negative thought  could arise and no desire to harm could exist. Love of a kind like that I did not know at all beforehand.

Suppose you’re a seven-year-old kid and Mom asks you if you want a glass of freshly-squeezed Florida orange juice. You say “yes” and she serves you Tang or Kool-Aid.

Oh my Gawd. You’d wretch and say, “That’s not orange juice.”

Well, what we consider to be love is Tang compared to their freshly-squeezed Florida orange juice. It’s not on the Richter scale compared to what love is in the higher dimensions.

I’ve spent time … time? … in the Ocean of Love. There isn’t much I know in the universe. I can’t hammer a nail in straight. But I do know love.

The response that Covid-19 is calling out of us is compassion, which is a form of love.

What the Pandemic is Doing

A pandemic such as we’re going through is chaotic and overwhelming in its consequences.  Many of us are thunderstruck at the changes asked of us.

Yet I maintain that the Coronavirus pandemic, as tragic as it is, has a cosmic meaning. That meaning is to have us be so taken aback that we’ll actually make the move from being structure-bound to being fluid and from being isolated to being lovingly connected.

No, not by doing something risky or dangerous. Prudence is always required.  We’re in a pandemic after all. But when the way is clear – and you keep your social distance – to begin to love and flow with people.

Hey, this is Stickman calling. I’m going to have more trouble with this than any of us and I’m here till the end.

Be that as it may, we cannot meet this disaster from the mind. Nor from the intellect, memory, imagination, or any other Third- or Fourth-Dimensional source within ourselves.

This can only be successfully met with an opening of our hearts to ourselves and others, and that in itself will lead to love and flow.

Where love and flow come together is that love flows. I cannot tell love to go to Mary and not Bob. Love instantly disappears if I do.

Love needs to flow freely. I have to allow it to go from my heart and flow out to the world. (2)

We need to start loving and flowing, within ourselves but – the pandemic is helping us see – with each other.

Or we can shrink, hoard, not listen to the cries, and do nothing. But that will simply cause us to lose the opportunity that this lifetime is. And this is not a lifetime to lose an opportunity.

Houston, I repeat. The universe seems to be pushing us to be loving and flowing. That’s the life pattern of the higher dimensions. And it’s what CV-19 seems to be calling out of us.

#lovingandflowing

(1) I’m no longer in those spaces.  And, while we’re here, I am neither qualified to be nor do I wish to be a spiritual teacher. Just a writer.

(2) That’s why I chuckle when I hear the phrase “universal love.” Show me love that is not always, already universal.

The Adult State = The Balanced State – Steve Beckow

The Balancing Act by Patricia Arroyo @ Fine Art America

~*~

The Adult State = The Balanced State

Having been reminded yesterday of the mind’s ability to divide itself into parts, sides, or voices, (1) I identified three persistent voices that were key in forming my everyday life experience.

I’ll use Eric Berne’s terms for them: a child, parent, and adult ego or consciousness state.  Berne explains:

“‘That is your Parent’ means: ‘You are now in the same state of mind as one of your parents (or a parental substitute) used to be, and you are responding as he would, with the same posture, gestures, vocabulary, feelings, etc.’

“‘That is your Adult’ means: ‘You have just made an autonomous, objective appraisal of the situation and are stating these thought-processes, or the problems you perceive, or the conclusions you have come to, in a non-prejudicial manner.’

“‘That is your Child’ means: ‘The manner and intent of your reactions is the same as it would have been when you were a very little boy or girl.’” (2)

In this regard, the Arcturians have said two things in readings that relate to the formation of my sensitivity to criticism and blame:

“Because you were to work with Ascension, you were called upon to create a reality in which you went to the depths of the depths [with your Father] while you also experienced great love [from your Mother].”  (3)

“You’ve been trained since childhood to hear the faintest whisper of darkness.” (4)

This resonates with me. My child’s discouragement and my critical parent are strong. I have both recordings. (5) I have to emerge from both.

This morning I awoke at 6:00 AM, telling myself that I should get up (parent ego state). I wanted to sleep more and so felt guilty and dismayed (child ego state).

But this was the first time I’ve ever woken up and seen the dynamic of a guilt-inducing parent state and a dismayed child. I watched myself actually walk through those steps.  And the truth set me free from the upset.

My life has been about climbing out of playing these two roles: a critical inner voice (the parent) and a beaten-down inner voice (the child). I now see that the way out is to let go of both of these and to summon up a third and balanced inner voice (the adult).

That’s what started this whole exploration. I noticed an adult voice that took command of a situation (lost on me now). I had never heard this voice before.  I recognized it as an adult voice and that immediately threw into stark relief the two voices I’d been listening to. I now saw them as my parent and child ego states, arguing.

What Berne calls “adult” Sanat Kumara and Archangel Michael call “balanced.”

Sanat Kumara said that achieving balance was what the universal laws are all about.

“The purpose of the law, the foundation of the law, is balance. It is to assist you, to guide you — and all beings — to the place of balance. That is the reason for Universal Law.” (9)

I’m beginning to see why.

Michael defined “balance” here:

AAM: We … want you to be balanced.

Steve: What does it mean to be balanced?

AAM: It means to be in your heart only and completely. It means to have your feet firmly planted in this dimension and Earth, because that is where the work is. And it means to refer to your head and not to be led, and certainly not to be influenced by fear or false reality. (5)

He stressed the importance of balance in building Nova Earth.

“Everything in balance. Everything in moderation. That is how one proceeds in creating Nova Earth and Nova Community.

“It is the paying attention to what is truly important and that is what you have been doing, by the way. There is not a distraction of bringing energy or the energy of judgment or criticism to that which is not vitally important.” (6)

The balanced or adult voice does not judge, he says.

“[The balanced voice] does not judge. It does not condemn. It does not choose sides. It comes from a place of equality and openness.” (7)

The Company of Heaven can play hardball when they need a certain outcome to come about.  In 2018 Michael, for example, confessed to clearing the decks around me so that my ability to make balanced decisions as a pipeline would not in any way be compromised:

“One of the things we have done with your consent … has been this clearing up of the space around you. …

“We don’t want you to feel or to be beholden – financially, emotionally or spiritually – to anybody. …

“We are setting up ways in which this, can we almost say, removes you from those heartstrings so that there is wisdom and balance and an understanding of the higher good [in your decision-making].” (8)

Tough love. But it shows us that the Company of Heaven are serious about our post-Reval work. They want to see us balanced.

It’s ironic that I should end up accepting Eric Berne’s terms for this important work of emerging from childhood trauma into balance. Berne was the author who first set my feet on this path of personal growth and emergence from childhood patterns.

When I read Games People Play, I had a tremendous “Aha!” and knew that I had found my life’s work. This was 1974.

By then I’d already completed a career as an historian and was looking for what was next. After reading Berne, I ended up on my final adventure as a budding academic, becoming a Sociology grad student, ever searching for the meaning of our patterns of behavior.

I now see that what Berne called “adult” and what Michael calls “balanced” are one and the same and the desirable state for a lightworker to be in.

Later

Now that I’m aware of this distinction and dynamic, I find myself going through the day identifying “child ego state,” “parent ego state,” “child,” “parent,” whenever they go off, and then letting go. Prior to this I wouldn’t have known what was happening to me; only that I felt dismayed. Now I know.

My wounded-child consciousness seems always expecting to be put down. It despairs of things being different. This is its programming.

I’m discouraged – and dismayed. I then feel depressed over feeling dismayed and on and on the daisy chain of thoughts and emotions goes.

Rather than feeling depressed all these years, I can now observe the child or parent ego state arising, experience any part of it that needs experiencing, and let it go. I’m no longer it. I’m no longer in it. I’m outside of it. The almost-automatic identification of me with those feelings was doing me no earthly good.

However, unless I’d had an explanation, which Eric Berne provided, I’d have gone on forever in a cycle of dismay and depression. Now, having a reliable map (transactional analysis) to the terrain (vasanas, early childhood trauma), (10) I can traverse it much more easily and quickly.

(10) I realize I’m not doing Berne’s original theories justice. The parent ego state is not uniformly negative; it can be nurturing and compassionate as well. And so with the child ego state.

I’m focusing mainly on the hurt and harm that people wrestle with as a result of early-=childhood trauma and I’m very selectively borrowing from Eric Berne to provide a model for dealing with one aspect of it.

An example of another tool not linked to Transactional Analysis? Jesus provided one: He said that the truth shall make you free.  That maxim provides a useful way of measuring if we’re on the right track in what we see about a vasana. If what we see is true, we should be experiencing increasing freedom. If not, then we’re barking up the wrong tree.

The spiritual basis of  my work with vasanas lies in the writings of Sri Ramana Maharshi.  See for instance Anon., Who Am I?

Dual or Non-Dual This Lifetime? – Steve Beckow

Image result for archangel michael art

Archangel Michael by Melanie Brear @ Pixels 

~*~

Dual or Non-Dual This Lifetime?

I’m going through a sad parting of the ways backstage between the lifelong non-dual student in me and the dualistic servant.

There are so many reasons why the non-dual is not the path for me this lifetime.

First, I know that my experiences are truncated to keep me here. It’s probably the same for any lightworker, anyone, that is, who works for Mother/Father God. The intent is not to have me be enlightened now, but instead be grounded and serve.

If all of us “flew” up into the higher realms, from which we all came, we’d be unable or unwilling to complete our service agreements.

Second, the non-dual is a pursuit of the Absolute. But I already know that my service is with this relative, everyday world.  So the stipulations of my service agreement preclude focusing on the Absolute right now.

Third, focusing on the Absolute would have me go inwards and perhaps get transfixed. But my service agreement is not with my inner states, as compelling as they are. It’s with people, outside. An introvert by nature, I’m called to be an extrovert. Archangel Gabrielle once reminded us:

“Your mission and purpose … is always going to be in concert and interaction with others, whether it is one or one billion, it matters not.” (1)

Fourth, this mass/physical Ascension we’re involved in invites us to act, as Michael explains:

“When we have said – and many of us have said this – that this is a time of action, of implementation, of moving forward, we mean it literally. We don’t simply mean it esoterically.

“We don’t simply mean now is the time to take action to clear your vasanas or core issues. We don’t simply mean that it is time to decide what your heart desires, although it is.

“It is time to bring forth and demonstrate, by the amazing diversity of talents, what you are capable of doing. Not just talking about, not just visioning, not just hoping for, but what you are capable of doing, demonstrably, in form, upon Gaia now….

“Not doing simply for busy-ness’s sake, for to take action without focused clarity and intent in the stillness and the spaciousness of being is meaningless.

“But to move in formulation, in action, in doing with that focused intent of understanding and using the talents that you have brought.

“And every single being upon this planet at this time has brought the fullness, the totality of their soul’s design to the planet. They did not leave anything behind.

“So you are well-equipped to take these steps of action, each of you in your own way and it is not an either/or. It is a mosaic and every piece counts.” (2)

Our lightwork will be very much a global work, way more than a national or a local.  In the pursuit of it, we’re being asked to start caring for each other, start sharing with each other, start giving a darn about each other. And allow that to shape our service.

Fifth, I’d rather let go of experiencing Sahaja Samadhi (Ascension) now to work with Archangel Michael.  The opportunity to work with him is beyond worldly value.

I’ve never felt so respected, honored, and cared for by another in my life as by him.

I’ll be posting many of the instructions he’s given me about how to proceed after the Reval. When I do, just listen to the care he takes with me every step of the way.

Feeling as I do, the path of the servant is more appropriate for me than the path of the non-dual student. But both karma yoga (dual) and jnana yoga (non-dual) lead to the same place.  All roads – dual and non-dual – lead to the One.

Nevertheless, these are the reasons why I’m a dualist this lifetime.

The Divine Mother on Her Nature – Steve Beckow

Mother Mary by Lynne Hudson @ Fine Art America

***

The Divine Mother on Her Nature

As a warm-up to International Women’s Day tomorrow, I wanted to post a radio interview with the original of the Divine Feminine – the Divine Mother – from Spring 2012.

To a cross-cultural spiritual student like myself, this interview is one of the most valuable statements the Divine Mother has ever made that I’m aware of.

In it she discusses a wealth of fundamental topics: She acknowledges being Shakti, being One with the Father, being the Father, being movement to the Father’s stillness, being Maré, the Ocean of Love and other matters that one simply could not find readily discussed in many other places.

Through channel Linda Dillon, here is the only One in the universe, the Divine Mother, describing Reality and her Nature.

The post is long and may need to be read in parts.

“Transcript of the Divine Mother on An Hour with an Angel, May 7, 2012,” via Linda Dillon ~ https://goldenageofgaia.com/abundance-on-building-nova-earth/what-role-are-the-angels-playing/transcript-of-the-divine-mother-on-an-hour-with-an-angel-may-7-2012/  

Divine Mother: I am the Mother — mother of all, giver of life, giver of love. It is my joy to be speaking with you. And I want to explain, for there are many thoughts and conceptions about who I am, about what I am.

There are many things that we will talk about and discuss this day. The most important is love. The most important is the transition that each of you, my beloved ones, goes through right now, as you receive love, a flow from my heart and from the heart of the Father, from One.

I am known by many names, and that is appropriate. And I am thought of in many forms — as Mary [Mother of Jesus], as Shakti, as Maré, which is very close because it is the [Latin] word for “ocean” in your world and language [the Ocean of Love]. It represents the movement and the giver of life, the creator of life, of love, of form, of substance, of essence. (3)

It is so that in many cultures and in many ways I am worshipped, I am adored, I am venerated. But, my beloved children, children that I have birthed from my being, from my essence — which is far beyond what you can imagine — I also wish to be thought of and felt as approached, approachable, present, ever present, available, accessible, and with you. (4)

There is no limitation, and there most certainly is no separation, throughout this universe and on your planet, that I may be with each one of you in the way that is appropriate in what you think of as your now, in the form and by the name that you call me. The key is, I will answer always. (5) …

Steve Beckow: Mother, you’re also known as the Word of God, Aum, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, the noise of many waters. Solomon called you Wisdom. Why is the knowledge of you “more precious than rubies”?

DM: Well, first of all, it is the way that human beings can express how they know me. But knowledge of me is more precious than anything, because I am your connection [to the Father]. When you are with me in the fullness of union, as full as you can know it while in form, then you are connected, and in, not only my creation, but my wisdom and my love. And in that is all. It is all you need to know or can know or will know. (6)It brings you beyond the human experience. (7) And, yes, I am also the voice crying in the wilderness. (8) But I want to address that, because it is not so much anymore, for many are heeding my voice. Many are heeding my pleas. Many are returning to the core of why you exist.

So, this expression, and the many expressions, are to emphasize the need — if such a thing exists, and I know it does — in each of your hearts. There are times when you feel the need, and [what I said] expresses what is first, what is always, what is primordial, what is primary in your journey. (9)

When you do not join with me, when you do not acknowledge me or turn to me, you are denying yourself, you are denying who you are and why you are. My gifts are beyond any human or Earthly measure. They are beyond any realm that you are experiencing within the human dimensionality. But that does not mean that you cannot come to know me and to join with me. No, it is not a contradiction, it is a request.

SB: How are you known, Mother?

DM: I am known as all. I am known as love. I am known as love, as dynamic action, as movement, as constant change, as fulfillment. Sometimes you tend to think of me as the Holy Spirit, but there is more to me than that, and there is a shade of the Father within there as well. But I am known by the movement within you and the movement within your Earth, within all things, within all universes.

I am a birther and a giver. I am the unchanging movement, and the constantly changing movement. I am the rhythm. I am the flow. I am Mother.

And on your planet that I have birthed, the pattern of Mother I have gifted you, that you are surrounded with the reminder of my presence, with the imprint of my presence and my wisdom, that you will know fulfillment. Yes, we have also imprinted free will.

So the actions of all mothers are not always of wisdom and love. But that does not change the knowing and the wisdom, within each of you, of what is intended to be. And when you return to that, when you stay within that, it will lift you to the bliss, to the One.

SB: Mother, you say you are movement, and that implies that the Father is stillness. But you are the Father as well as the Mother. Can you, if it’s at all possible, explain to our listeners what the difference is between your aspect as the Mother and your aspect as the Father?

DM: Yes, because, as I have said, I am All, I am One. And, if you will, as you will be speaking with the Father, (10) of course there will be more information. But also know, I am All. So, I give you human ways, not in a way of speaking down — quite the contrary — but in ways that you may understand. When I am Father, there is a stillness, complete.

This is something that the human race is simply learning now. It is the union and conjoining of stillness with movement, and how that is the balance of everything. When I am in the Father, I do not require that movement, for that is not the way that I have created the Father.  (11) So, they are the two halves of the whole. Many who listen to this will be a little confused, and yet, my children, there is no need for confusion.

Let me explain further. In many traditions, I am considered the Mother of All; in some traditions, the Mother of God, Source, One. Now, what does this mean? It means exactly what it says: I am the beginning and I am the completion, the end. (12) Each of you — and I have strongly encouraged you not only to discover but to find the masculine aspect of yourself, and the feminine, the stillness and the movement — you cannot have creation of any kind without both.

Creation comes from movement, and it is movement into form, into energy, into substance, into essence — however you conceive of that. But do not negate the role of the Father, of the masculine, because in that is the stillness of what you think of as the moment of creation. So it is the combination.

You say, “Mother, how can you do both?” It is who I am. And you, each one of you, are embedded with these qualities directly from my being, from my heart. I give you human ways rather than just sheer energy, which I also transmit to you now, but not only to embrace me, but to understand, because you are in your process also of fulfillment. It is part of your progression. It is already created.

I invite you to stay in the Now but also suggest to you and tell you, it is already done.

Does this answer your question, child?

SB: Well, I have to ask you one further question, Mother, to make sure that I understand completely what you just said. And I regret that I have to use a little bit of jargon, but I’ll explain to my readers later.

When you use the word “the Father,” are you referring to the conditioned Brahman? And if you are, could you tell us about your aspect as the transcendental Absolute?

DM: Many who listen do not understand this or these terms.

SB: Yes, I realize that.

DM: And part of my desire is to make very clear, that people do understand. So, ensure, beloved, that you do make these terms very clear for your readers and listeners.

SB: I will. But if you would just confirm for me now that you are speaking about the conditioned Brahman rather than the Transcendental Absolute, I can do the rest.

DM: Yes, that is exactly what I am speaking of.

Footnotes

(1) Which I experienced in connection with my heart opening of March 13, 2015.

(2) Sri Ramakrishna had a vision of Shakti untying the dying mortal’s remaining knots and Shiva giving the soul the mantra of liberation:

“I saw a tall white person with tawny matted hair walking with solemn steps to each pyre in the [Benares] burning ghat, raising carefully each jiva [soul] and imparting into his ear the mantra of supreme Brahman; while, sitting on the pyre on the other side of the body was the all-powerful universal Mother, Mahakali [Mahashakti], untying all knots of the bondage of karma, sending him to the indivisible sphere by opening with Her own hands the door to liberation. Thus did Siva grant the soul that which ordinarily results only from the practice of yoga and tapas [austerities] for many lives. (Swami Yogeshananda, The Visions of Sri Ramakrishna. Madras: Sri Ramakrishna Math, 1980, 64.)

(3) I can vouch for that.

(4) When has the invitation to relate to her ever been made so plainly and universally? One used to have to do rigorous austerities for what is freely available to us today.

(5) God shows up in the form the devotee worships. The Mother has just confirmed this fundamental truth as well.

(6) If there were no differentiation between the Mother and the Father, there would be no Mother or Father; there would be only the One.  But given that the Mother has also been created by the Father, she acknowledges: “knowledge of me is more precious than anything, because I am your connection [to the Father].”

She then gives a roadmap to union with her and beyond her the Father, whom she hands us off to: “You are connected, and in, not only my creation, but my wisdom and my love. And in that is all.” In that is the doorway in to the Father, Stillness.

For me, hearing these things from her was like a greedy person coming upon a steamer trunk full of gold and jewels. Every confirmation she makes here is added on to what we already have to derive a confirmed, cross-cultural view of Mother/Father God, the Self, and enlightenment.

(7) To the Transcendental; i.e., beyond the twelve dimensions.

(8) “The voice in the wilderness”:  An instrument of the Mother is Aum, the Word of God, the creative universal vibration that creates, preserves, and transforms worlds (often referred to as Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva or rajas, sattwa, and thamas).  The Bible refers to her as Amen, the voice in the wilderness, the noise of many waters, and the Holy Spirit (spiritus = breath). The Holy Spirit, or Shakti, is apparently a part of the Mother, not her totality.

(9) She identifies the primordial need that we have to unite with God. Other sages call this the longing for liberation. It does not stop until we merge again with God. See “The Longing for Liberation,” August 20, 2010, at https://goldenageofgaia.com/2010/08/20/the-longing-for-liberation/

She has also identified herself as the last stop before the Father. She’s discussed her nature. She’s confirmed a lot of what sages have said about her. This provides us with a foundation of knowledge upon which to build a cross-cultural spirituality.

(10) The InLight Radio team had earlier discussed speaking with the Universal Mother for Mother’s Day and the Holy Father (what I called the conditioned Brahman) for Father’s Day. But for reasons lost to me, the latter interview did not happen.

(11) The Father is uncreated and created the Mother. But insofar as the Father enters into the dream-world, the Mother  creates the form the Father takes. In form she is the only Creator.  Outside of form, he turns out to be the Source of creation.

The Mother says “creation comes from movement.”  Creation in the world of form does come from movement; when something doesn’t move at any level, it dissolves back into the Formless or Transcendental Absolute.

But I must say my curiosity was piqued by her comment: “That is not the way that I have created the Father.”  The Father outside Creation she did not create, but the Father inside creation, called the Personal God or the conditioned Brahman, she did “create” – or clothe with form. And she acknowledges it at the last in this interview when she speaks of the Father as the conditioned Brahman.

Brahman = God. The unconditioned Brahman is the One, Source, the Transcendental Absolute. The conditioned Brahman is God operating inside the dreamworld of the Mother – the Divine Masculine aspect, heart of stillness but with form given to it by the Mother.  In New Age terms we often call this the “God of this universe.”  The god Vishnu could also be thought of as the conditioned Brahman.  As an avatar, Krishna called himself Brahman in form; i.e., the conditioned Brahman. The term is therefore used to refer to a number of levels of Reality. The Brahman in all of them is Stillness.

(12) The Mother and the Father are not different. They are one. Therefore it is as true for the Mother to say I am the beginning, the middle and the end as it is for the Father.  When It moves, God is the Mother; when It’s still, God is the Father. That’s the chief difference between the two, as she makes plain here. But on her movement all of creation depends. Without it everything disappears.

Archangel Michael on the Promise of Sacred Partnership

Archangel Michael once blessed a relationship I was in.  What he said on that occasion really deserves to be more widely read.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Sept. 30, 2015.

Archangel Michael: Dearest heart, do you not think that you are asking us to bless you [after] the horse has already left the stable?

You know exactly what I mean so it is ironic that you ask. Yes, we have had a slight hand [in this], shall we say. Let us play today.

There are many things that we bring forth. Sometimes it is slightly hidden. Sometimes it is a bit of a puzzle. Sometimes it is not immediately clear and at other times it is crystal clear and presented on a silver platter arranged amongst the roses.

And we will present these types of things, this variety of things, of situations, opportunities, growth patterns, etc., to humanity time and time and time again.

Too often, far too often, the offering is not accepted or picked up. So, when I tease you and I say the horse has already left the stable, I am saying to both of you that it is a gift not only to you but to us when the offering, when the opportunity, when the growth potential is seen, accepted, acted upon, nurtured and taken up. And you have done this.

Now does this mean, my beloved friends, that there will never be any issues or conflict or disagreements? Of course there will be. That is part of the growth pattern. But is there also extraordinary potential for joy, for soaring, for expansion, for a deepening of the knowledge and the wisdom of who you are, in service to the Mother/Father One? Yes, the opportunity is extraordinary.

We have spoken to you previously about the opportunity to anchor into form and upon Nova Earth this patterning of what it means in human form, whether you are angelic, archangelic, starseed – it matters not – into human reality the pattern of relationship of divine masculine/divine feminine.

Now we could make this incredibly complex but you know this is not a lesson in quantum physics. This is a conversation, a delightful conversation about love, about sacred union, about the fulfilment of promise and about the anchoring of human potential of Nova Being as Nova Gaians. And what does this really mean?

We have spoken a great deal on this topic. It means, sweet angels, that you come from the heart. That you refer and you reflect your brilliant minds – yes, your emotional and your mental knowingness and history – but that you come from the place of heart consciousness that is expanded to such a degree that what human beings have termed, conflict, disagreement, even what we call growth opportunities, are but the chance, the open door to expand towards and with and into one another.

Never does this patterning in the divine masculine and feminine mean surrender of the self. If anything, it is the enormous, beautiful expansion of the self. Are there times of surrender to one another? Of course there are. That is the nature of unity. Not just relationship; I am speaking of unity.

And are there times of standing stalwart, of knowing the truth of what you hold near and dear as truth to your beingness? Yes, there are. Are there times when there are different perceptions or experiences of this? Yes, of course there are. But that is the nature of conjoining and, might I add, the willingness to complement one another, not simply to admire, to adore, to love but the willingness to complement.

Steve: What does that mean, Lord, “complement”?

AAM: Think of it in this way. I am the Archangel of Peace, the Warrior of Love and I have my mission and purpose and promises that I have made to the Mother, let us say before I get to return to my art and music; and I am sure before that she will have another task for me! But nevertheless…

Steve: (laughing)… Taking a few billion years!

AAM: Yes, just a few!

But what do I do? In everything I endeavor, whether it is in your terminology, thought or action, heart consciousness, love, I am but a complement to the Mother. That is the truth and purpose of every breath, every minuscule movement because that is the core of what you would think of or term, my desires.

When one is truly in sacred union and, concomitant to that, patterning in the divine feminine and masculine, what are you doing except complementing the Mother/Father One?

You are not merely emulating. You are inhabiting such a way of being that your totality, the wholeness, not just the composite parts, but the wholeness of your being is a complement to one another and, in turn, a complement to Mother/Father One.

So in this way, such outmoded patterns as competition, as conflict, as disagreement in the old realm are not even possible because the totality of your being [is] as an individual to complement the Mother/Father but also to complement one another and thereby complement the Mother/Father.

So when I work with my beloved sister Gabrielle, we harmonize our energies. We complement one another although she always wants to take the lead! (chuckles) And in so doing we complement not only the Mother/Father but the One, the All, the Everything.

So that is what I mean. When you are taking action, let us be practical, does this grow, stretch, solidify, and harmonize the union? Harmonize the other in this union? Or does it detract? That is what I mean.

A Basic Change of Opinion – Steve Beckow

Archangel Michael by Lily Moses

🧡

A Basic Change of Opinion

I’d like to continue a thread. It’s about the importance of how we feel.

You know, I haven’t been to Earth all that often. (1) I often feel like an anthropologist, studying customs in the North American culture to which I belong because all seems so new.

I have absolutely no awareness of any other culture but ours – on or off planet. But following the path of awareness is where in spirituality you’d expect to find a curious newbie and a wannabe anthropologist.

I notice things. I also know I’m being fed thoughts and have caught “them” in the act on one or two occasions.  For instance, I have a very loud ringing in my ears right now, which tells me that Michael is here. (2)

And I’m always trying to take these noticeings and explain what sociologists call “the definition of the situation” and what I’ll call “what’s going on here?”

So I had a “what’s going on here?” moment today, listening to music. I observed myself changing my mood based on a thought having changed. The music reminded me of someone and the minute I remembered her I was swept away by love. (3)

A minute before I had been listening to different music and grumbling about daily issues. Oh my Gawd, it was so much more enjoyable to be swept away by love. But I saw that I did it. I caused the change in feeling by changing my thought.

I let go of the daily issues and began thinking about an angelic being whom I love. My mood changed like that!

And yet, if I were feeling an unpleasant way like humiliated or lonely, I’d be thinking to myself that I need to feel that way until it lifts. I need to stay with the experience. I need to be with it.

In actuality that isn’t totally true.

If I change the focus of my attention, I actually can change my mood.

For years, I regarded this as dodging the issue. By staying with the experience, I was getting at the root of the matter. But I now feel the tug of weightier matters and I no longer have the time to go the long route, as useful as it is.

I’d like to leave that noticeing for a moment, to show you how the process of consciousness works. The next thing to arise was a stray issue, triggered by noticeing I no longer had time.

I now engaged with the issue that my time was no longer my own. I’m in service now. I feel regret, wistfulness, sorrow.

I’ve lost control … or yielded control … of my time. That goes along with – it’s implicit in – service.

So let me count. I now have agreed to stay to the end, yielded expectations of enlightenment and given over control of my time. Those are big sacrifices, what the Arcturians would call “big initiations.”

It demonstrates that service will ask certain things of us. We’re called upon to make some sacrifices. And they’re sometimes not small.

OK, that illustrates how one thought follows another – triggered or not – in a stream of consciousness. My private life is just moving from one thought and the mood it brings to the next. At least that’s the way it is on Earth.

Returning now to my overall theme, I do have some control over my feelings. I can change a thought that has negative energy streamers attached to it to one that has positive.

I’m not arguing about the rights and wrongs of seeing things that way. I’m simply observing what shows up for me like fact. Changing our thoughts can change our feelings.  (4) If we don’t want to feel the way we do, then among the many strategies we can use, the quick one is to change our thoughts.

When I’m standing in front of a group of government officials and corporate officers and we’re contemplating how to bring a universal basic income to Canada and I’m feeling grumpy, I’ll remember this.

(1) Eight times, this lifetime included.

(2) Steve: How do I know when you are whispering in my ear?

Archangel Michael: Often it is prefaced by a high-pitched ring.

S: Oh, I hear that all the time.

AAM: Yes, I know.

S: [laughing] Are you here all the time?

AAM: Yes, I am. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Feb. 18, 2011.)

(3) Here’s an example of mood-changing music.  See if you can listen to Ennio Morricone’s Theme from the Mission and not have your mood shifted.

I have never watched The Mission, just so you know. I only know this piece of music from it.

Most Issues are not about Money – Steve Beckow

 

Metallic Gold Dollar Sign For The Love Of Money Mini Pop Art Painting Madart is a painting by Megan Duncanson @ Pixels

 💚

Most Issues are not about Money

On May 6, 2016, Archangel Michael told me in a reading:

“Most issues, beloved, are not about money; they are about self-worth, taking responsibility, sharing responsibility, leadership, sharing leadership, knowing when to lead and went to follow, and stepping up in ways that are creative.

“What money is used for is so that a person, a group, an individual, an institution, an entire community, an entire planet can step forward without worry, without that fear which is so pervasive upon your planet, to create!

“So think of it as money as a creation tool. And if it is not creating, if it is simply being thrown down the drain or being maintained in a way that is not creative, then it is not doing its job.” (1)

I find that a profound help towards changing my thinking about money.

My family had a troubled history with money. It was used as a tool of control and left a very bad taste in my mouth. I swore I would not use it that way.

But he says that most issues are not about that. He goes on to describe the proper function of money: To allow us to “step forward without worry, without that fear which is so pervasive upon your planet, to create!”

And since the Company of Heaven have plans to release abundance that go well past just the Reval, (2) the creators are to be “an individual, an institution, an entire community, an entire planet.”

All of us occupy our days creating. You go into the office, another goes into the field, someone else into space and creates, creates, creates.

But, when we perceive that we’re without money, we do it from a place of fear. If we were abundant, we’d still have those days to live and create in. But I think we’d be far more creative, we could let our hearts and souls roam more, without the fear of want and lack. (3)

So, he asks us to think of “money as a creation tool.” It allows us the resources and the opportunity to create.

I’ve been working for the last couple of weeks on doing a book for myself on what my financial role requires. (4) There won’t be time to look things up after the Reval. I want it all in one place.

I’ve been working for years (since the matter was first raised in 2011) to “live into” that role. I went through stages where I was awkward with (imagined) wealth. At other points I was playing small. Now my creative process inside is fluid and unrestrained.

I can play with whole programs (like universal basic incomes or universal medicare) and work with them like chess pieces. I’m beginning to be able to think financially, in a number of directions.

When I was a child, I used to build dioramas. I had dioramas with dinosaurs and toy soldiers. And then I built my pièce de resistance – a model airport – in my bedroom.  The sense of building large environments was immensely attractive to me. (Perhaps I should have been an architect.)

I made large brushstrokes as a child model builder. I wasn’t worried about money.

And I’ve reached a point now in my living into my own financial role where my willingness and lack of worry allow me again to start making bold brush strokes. It’s been a journey for a person with the proclivities of a monk.

So I see the creativity that can be involved in working with the large sums of money we’ll be managing after the Reval.

But there’ll be a limbering up process – after we take our vacations. At first we may wonder how we’ll ever be able to work with money … well, I did. But now the fears are subsiding and the reality is beginning to register with me.

Building Nova Earth after the Reval can be such fun, so creative, so satisfying. (It’s up to us.) The Mother has been saying that if what we’re doing (after the Reval) isn’t bringing us joy, don’t do it.

“Does it bring joy to your heart? Does it ignite that wonderful smile in your tummy? Does it make your feet tap, wanting to get going? Does it feel like love? Does it feel that you could take this project, whatever it is, and show it to me in full confidence and pride that this is something that you are offering yourself, each other, and the multiverse, the omniverse.

“Now, if it does not give you that feeling, then set it aside. Go on to the next idea. Because the inspiration that you are being flooded with — and I mean each and every one of you – [means] you are not in a lull. You are overwhelmed with ideas. So go to the next one, and say, all right, is this the one that makes my heart sing? And it may be a multitude of steps.

“Do what feels like unbridled joy. That is how you create Nova Earth. That is how you say, as a human, as a creator race, this is how I work with the elementals, with the kingdoms, with the devas, with the planet, with my guides, with my star brothers and sisters, with the Company of Heaven.” (5)

What more reassurance do we need?

It’s already becoming so for me as I study more and more what Michael has said about how to participate in a world-embracing way after the flow of abundance starts.

Filled with Gratitude

I’m grateful to the Divine Mother for allowing me to serve in the capacities assigned to me.

I’m grateful to Gaia for hosting us all so patiently and bounteously.

I’m grateful to Michael – and to his channel, Linda Dillon – for mentoring me.

I’m grateful to Suzi, Kathleen, Sitara, Karen, and Casey for producing this blog each day, mutually supporting each other to reach the Reval finish line, and having fun doing it.

Here we are on Love Day, Feb. 14, a day we’ve set aside to look at gratitude. And I find I’m a babe in the woods on gratitude.

I thrash around looking for a self-serving explanation of why I’m so superficial. I can’t find one.

When I look deeper I see that my situation with gratitude goes a long way back, to being a complainer as a young child. “No one listened to me” so I used complaints to be heard.

A complainer pathologically takes an adversarial position. There ain’t much room for gratitude there.

Let me get back to the place of innocence and purity that lives in the seat of the soul. From that place, I’m so filled with gratitude to all my friends. From this place I feel gratitude deeply.

Experiencing this state from this perspective reveals it to be another higher-dimensional space, like abundance, mastery, peace, and bliss.

Of course. Gratitude is a divine quality, a divine state. What did I expect? Why have I denied myself this pleasure, all these years?

Vasanas. Conditioning. Programming.

Gratitude is an immensely satisfying space.  I’m at peace feeling grateful. I notice a flow of love going out towards the person I’m grateful to. All spaces and states seem to lead back to love.

Gratitude is another road in to love.  Gratitude and love are their own rewards.

I’m grateful for all the kindnesses you’ve extended to me. I’m grateful for all the kind words you’ve written in.  I’m grateful to be alive today and participating with you in what we’re commonly about – building a whole new world of prosperity, peace, and happiness.

The Ladder of Consciousness: From Intellectuality to Experience to Realization – Part 5/5 – Steve Beckow

Artist ~ Annelie Solis

The Ladder of Consciousness: From Intellectuality to Experience to Realization – Part 5/5

January 23, 2020 by Steve Beckow

(Concluded from Part 4, yesterday.)

The subject of the ladder of consciousness is basic to my own spiritual practice.

Frankly, I think it may be basic to anyone’s. Let me discuss how it surfaces in my own practice.

Manifestation doesn’t come from intellectual or even experiential knowledge

As I said yesterday, if I were focused entirely on enlightenment as the object of life, I wouldn’t mention the siddhis or psychic powers, such as manifestation. They’re regarded by the dedicated seeker after enlightenment as being a distraction.

But we’re lightworkers and interested in alleviating poverty and hunger in the world. Manifesting either using devices like the replicator or our own psychic abilities has an importance to us that it doesn’t have to the dedicated seeker.

We’re not here for our personal enlightenment. We’ve been enlightened in other lifetimes or we wouldn’t be here, helping with an Ascension. We’re here for service.

Though many may disagree with me, I find dualism a more useful philosophy to lightworkers than non-dualism. We talk to the Divine Mother, as the dualist would; we don’t dismiss our talks as illusion, as the non-dualist might.

With this in mind, let’s look at this most-useful power of manifestation, as it ties in with realization.

A mistake we’re said to make is to expect the benefits that come from realization to come from intellectual or experiential knowledge; apparently they don’t, the Arcturian Group informs us:

“Many in their spiritual enthusiasm, have made the mistake of trying to live the absolute before attaining the consciousness of it. Attaining a consciousness of absolute truth is the evolutionary journey. … Truth begins as intellectual knowledge, but can never manifest into expression until realized.” (1)

“As with every aspect of spiritual evolution, intellectual knowledge of a truth is only the first step. You cannot sit in the absolute waiting for a bag of money to drop from the sky (although this could happen if you had the consciousness of it).

“Know the truth and then take whatever human footsteps you are guided to take, be it employment or assistance of some sort. Let your actions be what resonates with you, and not what others may be telling you to do for their guidance – as well meaning as it may be – is representative of their state of consciousness and not yours.” (2)

When, in the process of ascending, we become capable of tasting the spaces in the higher realms, our full reward will come, Diane of Sirius tells us. It will sweep away all thoughts of discord.

“Your full rewards will come to you as you begin to ascend, and a peace that knows no equal will settle upon you. No longer will you experience the discord and disharmony that is upon Earth, as in rising up you will sever your links with the lower vibrations. They will no longer serve you, and your vision will pull you towards the levels of Light that pervade the higher levels. You will find that you are at ‘home’ within them, and the realization will dawn upon you that you have simply reawakened to what you already knew.” (3)

St. Germaine says that realization realigns the energies more fully to the Creator. I believe he’s talking about a deeper sort of realization than a mere “Aha!”

“A simple realization will create a powerful and magnificent transformation which would realign their energies more fully to the Creator and divine flow of the Universe, allowing a freedom which will be a release and a completion of the lessons of numerous past lifetimes.

“These souls will then feel the energy and essence of transformation and the freedom of the Creator pulsating throughout their being guiding them to support others in doing the same.” (4)

I can speak to that: Realizing higher-dimensional love, a person wants only to communicate it and have others share in it, “guiding them to support others in doing the same.” I know that from experience – and realization.

The Arcturian Group inform us that:

“Where there is an attained consciousness (not intellectual knowledge) of oneness[,] with Divine completeness, there is abundance, for the door has been opened. New and better ideas begin to flow effortlessly to all aspects of life, and those things necessary seem to somehow be there when needed.” (5)

So, if we’re lightworkers wondering when we’ll be able to manifest, the Arcturian Group has just told us. The door will be opened when we have attained and are complete with oneness. Time to use all we know to help us realize oneness.

They go on to explain:

“Every spiritual idea of Divine Consciousness is embodied within every soul – abundance, joy, peace, wholeness, harmony, completeness etc. etc. The realization (not simply intellectual knowledge) of this is then translated by mind into forms that are understandable and personal to the individual.

“Example; A conscious realization of abundance as being an omnipresent quality of Source will manifest in the forms needed by an individual, forms he can relate to.” (6)

The realization of abundance will bring abundance. I’d assume the realization of peace would bring peace, and so on. That’s when we lightworkers will begin to manifest, as far as I can see. (7)

Again, if we were seekers after enlightenment, this discussion would be irrelevant. But as people who’ll be building a new Earth, the ability to see our desires for the highest good manifest comes to have more significance.

To summarize, consciousness resembles a ladder in that intellectuality only provides some satisfaction and occupies a lower vibration than the other two; experience – the next step up – provides more satisfaction and is a higher vibration; and realization provides more satisfaction than we can probably imagine and is the highest vibration of the three.

In this series, our sources have discussed the relative merits of each and described what realization is and what the deeper forms of it bring in their train.

Seeing spiritual practice as movement up this ladder is not only useful to people seeking enlightenment or Self-Realization. It’s useful to anyone serving the Divine Mother, any lightworker as well.

Knowing about this three-level ladder of consciousness is useful to us spiritually and practically. Since there are levels of realization, its study is just a door in to a much wider field.

The subject of the ladder of consciousness is basic to my own spiritual practice.

Frankly, I think it may be basic to anyone’s. Let me discuss how it surfaces in my own practice.

Archangel Michael’s discussion of the ladder of consciousness

Archangel Michael and I discussed the three levels of consciousness on An Hour with an Angel in 2017:

Steve Beckow: Well, you talked about ‘truly knowing’ and I just wonder if we don’t need to clarify something here…, that when you say truly knowing you’re not talking about intellectual knowledge, not even talking about having a feeling or an intuition or a sense of something. You’re talking about something much deeper than that, right [i.e., realized knowledge]?

Archangel Michael: That is exactly what I am talking about. It is about the true, true knowing, wisdom. It has, well, I would say, nothing, but I will adjust that and say very little to do with emotionality or intellect or the mental body [i.e., experience or intellectuality]. It is heart-and-soul knowing, what you call realization, what we might even hint at in terms [like] enlightenment, or illumination. (1)

The true knowing will filter through to your feelings and to your intellect and to your beautiful mental body, and reassure the ego and delightful personality that you are [OK]. It is a heart-and-soul knowing. …

Truly knowing comes from the deepest and the highest part of yourself. It is where the union of your universal self, your higher self, your what you may think of as human self in your soul center comes together to inform you, if you wish to think of it as that, of truth. (2)

He’s saying what it is by saying what it’s not. I wouldn’t even attempt to talk about realization itself. I couldn’t speak a word about it because I don’t know how to describe it.

I despaired of getting my mind around some of his teachings and shared my feelings with Michael.

Steve: How are we going to understand these things? They are so much higher than we can get our heads around.

Archangel Michael: There has been this slow dawning that has been underway for some time. You’ve had this experience. There is this slow dawning so that expansion, expansion, expansion, expansion [occurs] and then you reach the point of that expansion – that’s stretching – but then you [become] capable of having that “aha” moment. And that “aha” moment is what many have referred to as “turning on the switch.”

Steve: Yes, realized knowledge….

AAM: Yes.

Steve: Self-Realization is just a bigger, bigger, bigger, bigger realization but these “aha” moments are still realization, are they not?

AAM: That is correct. (2)

So far, Michael has confirmed the ladder of consciousness – Intellectuality, Experience, and Realization – and has shared that realization itself spans the range from the ordinary “Aha!” moment to merger with the One.

Tomorrow we’ll look at the relationship between realization and manifestation.

If we were students of the Advaita Vedanta, the non-dual, we’d never look at such a subject.  But we’re what Indians would regard as householder servants of the Divine. We use manifestation in building Nova Earth.  Hence we look at a subject that we’ll probably draw on years from now.

(Concluded in Part 5, tomorrow.)

Who’s Serving Whom? or, How Have I Been Blessed – Steve Beckow

Who’s Serving Whom? or, How Have I Been Blessed

From time to time, it’s suggested that I’m following Archangel Michael’s advice unquestioningly.

There’s the implication of slavishness on my part or surrendering my discernment, my thinking, even my freedom.

I think both he and I would contest that description. I’ve never let go of the necessity to use my own discernment.

Slavishness implies a degree of robot-like behavior. Decisions have always remained mine in the last analysis. And I’ve always been at choice with and aware of that.

An example would be my request not to be required to write appeals. If I write appeals, sooner or later my writing becomes affected by it, if even in subtle ways. Michael has acceded to my request.

There may have been one or two decisions that he impressed upon me. There have been decisions going on in the background, such as my Higher Self’s agreement that I be kept in the hospital by incurring a (treatable) superbug. (1) It added two weeks onto the time I had to stay in a hospital bed. Which was its purpose – to have me rest.

The superbug decision falls under my invitation to him long ago to “manage” me. Because I refuse to remain idle for any great length of time, hospital stays seem periodically necessary. I don’t think I’m capable of vacationing.  I’m staying at the Hotel St. Paul’s.

There have been things he’s said I don’t agree with. I take what I like and leave the rest.

There are also matters on which he and Matthew Ward differ. I have to remain open to either interpretation being proven true because I surely don’t know.

Nevertheless his reasoning and compassion is as far above mine as a plane flying high overhead is to me.

Keep in mind that I’ve asked the Divine Mother, if I worshipped a false guru, would God still accept my service? And she replied that God would. (2)

So, no matter who it is I’m speaking to on the other end of the line, I’m serving Archangel Michael. That’s why I don’t ultimately fear serving him. Even if this contact turns out to be a facade, I’m still serving Michael.

Why would I not? Steve, I have a job here that might suit you. It’s to run a joint venture with an archangel – Michael, to be exact. The joint venture is an Internet blog, a mouthpiece among many mouthpieces for the Company of Heaven.

Are you interested?

Am I interested? Who would not be? Of course I’m interested.

And serving him? Yes. He’s satisfied my tests many times over.

Have you ever wondered how the heck the people running this blog keep going month after month?

The Company of Heaven want humans to begin being charitable and giving.  So, as I understand it, our team volunteered to be on the receiving end, down in the trenches. (3) After all the Company of Heaven is in possession of limitless wealth. It’s not like they couldn’t slip us a prosperity package.

But they want to awaken the generosity impulse in lightworkers and our team volunteered to be the spark in the generosity explosion.

However he, you and others do it, every month we’re able to pay the rent and put food on the table.

But, again, that’s just one of many ways in which he’s proven to me that this really is a co-creative partnership and aren’t I the luckiest man in the world?

So why would I not serve him?

I could go on. (4) What journalist would not welcome this collaboration?

And even if it ended tomorrow, how have I been blessed.  This has been better than any Hollywood dreamscape. I’ve never been so lovingly challenged in all my life. And I’ve never been so generously and warmly cared for and nurtured.

Who’s serving whom?

Footnotes

(1) Steve: Did you bring on that onset of MSSA to have me relax and just spend some time in the hospital?

Archangel Michael: Yes.

Steve: I thought you did! Oh boy. That is so funny!

AAM: There is a part of you, even when we suggested to you that timeout was required, that doesn’t know what that means.

Steve: Yes, that’s right. That’s why you called me “wildcard” to XXX, right?

AAM: Yes. And your Higher Self, your Universal Self has given permission for these overrides. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Nov. 26, 2019.)

No need to. I gave him permission long ago.

(2) Steve Beckow: I’m operating on the principle – and please correct me if I’m mistaken here – that I serve Archangel Michael, period.

If I were to go to another medium and she was not channeling Archangel Michael and I were to do what was being said, and it turns out to be a colossal error, I’m still serving Archangel Michael.

Am I correct in continuing to say to myself, “The source is not what they say they are but it doesn’t matter. I’m still serving Archangel Michael.”

Divine Mother: You have reached this place of clarity. Now, dearest heart, this is exactly what I am talking about in terms of your divine knowing. And nothing is swaying you from that balanced center of knowing.

So it does not matter whether somebody says they are channeling Hilarion or Mickey Mouse. You know that you are serving my beloved Michael and I would like to suggest to you, Sweet One, not to distract you, but you are also serving me.

Steve: I so much know that, Mother.

DM: You always have. And so, yes, how we have constructed this is that you are employed, you are in joint venture, you are in sacred partnership with Michael, with Me-Ki-Al, and that is the way that you have chosen and that he has chosen and that I have chosen for you to proceed.

Steve: Yes, Mother. Thank you for confirming that.

DM:  Let us give you further insight into this. So, if you were channeling with somebody and they said it was Hilarion, and in fact it was Hilarion, understand on our side the conjoining is so much stronger [with Michael] that Michael would simply funnel through Hilarion what needs to be said.

Steve: Interesting! (Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 26, 2018.)

(3)  Archangel Michael: Part of you (and this is not the sole explanation) has agreed to be in the trenches. (Ibid.,  Jan. 18, 2020.)

Steve: This poverty that we are having to endure just doesn’t seem necessary.

Divine Mother: You have agreed that you are on, can we say, the receiving end.

Steve: So our being [poor] is used as a means to get people to open up?

Divine Mother: To express gratitude, generosity, unity and to express what is valuable to them.

Steve: So that is what the spiritual meaning of this is. That we serve that purpose of igniting people’s generosity or inspiring it.

Divine Mother: That is correct. You are the catalysts.

Steve: That is what I needed to know. (Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, June 7, 2015.)

(4) Building Nova Earth. How could I do it without friends in high places?  Finding out how to rid the world of its conditions through collective meditations. Finding out what’s really going on behind the scenes. Confirming my suspicions.

The Ladder of Consciousness: From Intellectuality to Experience to Realization – Part 3/5

(Continued from Part 2, yesterday.)

The subject of the ladder of consciousness is basic to my own spiritual practice.

Frankly, I think it may be basic to anyone’s. Let me discuss how it surfaces in my own practice.

What is the awakening from intellectuality like?

Saul describes a person awakening from mere intellectuality to a trusting of the gut feeling; that is, from the intellectual to the experiential. I’ve italicized the change in the conversation, to feeling:

“These … are the first signs of an awakening – an awakening to the realization that their lives truly have a meaning and purpose beyond everyday reality. They are beginning to feel a deep longing for much, much more than life on Earth offers, and yet this makes no sense to them. They are confused and lonely and lack a trustworthy listener or guide.

But their intuition or gut feeling pushes them forward, insisting that something of great moment is happening, and they want to know what it is. As they search for answers they stumble upon books, blogs, web sites, and magazine articles covering these issues and with which they resonate.

“They meditate and pray, which may well be a new experience for them, and their sense that their existence does indeed have a meaning strengthens and intensifies, encouraging them to continue gathering information. As they do so they start to trust their gut feelings, their intuition, their inner knowing, which they find does not mislead them.” (1)

Some may not have meditated and prayed; they may have done something else, but chances are they’ll now be feeling a sense of awakening, in this case, to experience.

What is Realization itself like?

What then is realization?

I can offer you my opinion.

As a mere novice in the area, I consider realization to be a radical discontinuity in experience combined with a usually-temporary immersion in a divine state such as peace, love, or bliss and an explosive expansion in knowing.

What does it feel like?

I can only describe the first step. Let’s listen to folks farther down the road.

The Pleiadians through Barbara Marciniak: “This experience [of realization] involves raising a feeling inside yourself and then, one day, at one moment, in one afternoon, having an overwhelming sense of knowing: having a composition a thousand pages long come alive in five seconds of divine ecstacy.” (2)

Absolutely. She uses a knowledge-based metaphor to make her point.

The Arcturian Group: “There comes a time in everyone’s (teacher and student) evolutionary journey when he shifts into a realization of oneness. This may come in an instant after lifetimes of spiritual seeking, or it may be a slow and gradual process.

“This is ascension, the attainment of that state of consciousness that realizes everything Real is perfect and held in place by Divine law and that the ONE is ever manifesting ITSELF… ‘What you see is what you get’ as the saying goes… Your state of consciousness is interpreting for you the divine ideas embodied within the One.” (3)

So notice: Not an explosion of bliss; not a profound awareness of love, although both of these may come with it, but “a realization of oneness,” a knowing.

An inner knowing and a majestic certainty, for as long as it lasts.

Archangel Michael: “It is the feeling, the experience – and might I even say the knowing, the deep knowing – that you are not stuck, you are not limited, you are not confined by what previously has been informationally identified as time and space. You leave that behind and you enter into the flow of the universe, which is how we operate.” (4)

Again, with the knowing, the realization that we are not limited or confined comes our entry into the flow of the universe.

I emphasize this because so many superficial treatments of the topic of enlightenment emphasize other aspects of the experience but they don’t get across that enlightenment itself is an event that happens in the domain of knowledge, of certain, inner knowing. We realize the Truth.

We’ll look at Archangel Michael’s in-depth discussion of “true knowing” tomorrow.

The Ladder of Consciousness: From Intellectuality to Experience to Realization – Part 2/5

(Continued from Part 1, yesterday.)

The subject of the ladder of consciousness is basic to my own spiritual practice.

Frankly, I think it may be basic to anyone’s. Let me discuss how it surfaces in my own practice.

Intellectual knowledge is just a first step (continued)

Matthew Ward calls intellectual knowledge “beliefs” and realized knowledge” real knowing”:

“Beliefs are formed when the same information is repeated by one or more external sources—parents, peers, teachers, religious leaders, scientists, government officials, mainstream media—and, when you learn that information is not complete or accurate, your beliefs change accordingly.

“Knowing is within, a constant, pervasive, unquestioned ‘rightness’—the merging of soul-level truth and your consciousness.” (1)

I think most if not all of us have had some experience of this certain inner knowing.  It’s much stronger than our beliefs.

St. Germaine also lays out the difference between the two. He calls realization “spiritual” knowingness of truth.

“A spiritual knowingness of truth is very different to an intellectual knowingness of truth. It may often seem as if you are weak if you admit that you do not understand the truth and will of the Creator but this is a beautiful space that you can enter into, accessing a deep stream of freedom from within your being that offers tremendous expansion and connection with the Creator.

“In many ways it is as if you are letting go of any form of control that you may have upon the world, your reality or being, entering into a space that truly allows you to experience the truth of the Creator.” (2)

I believe St. Germaine is referring here to a very high space that Werner Erhard called “Not Knowing.” Others have called it “the Cloud of Unknowing.”

In it, we’re moved to drop all pretense to knowing what’s going on and genuinely relax into not knowing. The answer (the realization) has then the space to show up. Werner called the space of realization, “Natural Knowing.” Different names but all pointing to the same thing; in this case, the dynamics of realization.

The Arcturian Group called intellectual knowledge a first step out of the maze we’re in:

“An intellectual knowledge of truth is the first step out of this maze, but it must evolve deeper and become an attained state of consciousness. The ego or personal sense of self regardless of how educated or intellectually aware is only able to create change at that level. …

“Only through one’s conscious alignment with truth, spirit, and the Divine Self can that sacred portal within open and allow the flow of Light that dissolves the dark.” (3)

Intellectual knowledge only has enough power to it to take us so far. Experience and realization lie beyond it.

The “flow of Light that dissolves the dark” is itself realization.

We cannot substitute pretense for realization and hope to get away with it, the Arcturian Group tells us:

“Completeness and wholeness [are] the birthright of every soul, but must become the state of consciousness in order to be experienced. This is the evolutionary journey. To pretend wholeness and completeness without having attained a consciousness of it is to stick one’s head in the sand…

“Evolving into a consciousness of completeness is the evolutionary journey.” (4)

I’ve always found that I cannot fake a higher state of consciousness than I’ve experienced. And I assume the same can generally be said of others. To pretend to be somewhere other than where I am is to ignore how reality works.

Through the whole discussion runs the thread that realization is the goal of life – a realization of our Oneness with God. Realization is the mechanism and the destination and the reward.

Intellectuality is a first step towards it but not a place at which to stop. As it turns out, the fulfillment of life’s purpose impels us to move from intellectuality through experience to realization.

YES, WE Keep Focusing on LOVE! – Steve Beckow

Wings of Love Painting by Toni Carmine Salerno @ Artmajeur

💟

YES, We Keep Focusing on LOVE!

In 2014, Saul said something that was deeply true for me.

“Dwelling on the injustices that you have experienced, or that loved ones or other innocents have undergone, only provides energy to maintain the illusion.  Your aim is to dissolve it; and Love is doing that through you when you choose to be loving.

“Remember, there is only NOW!  Past and future are figments of the illusion that seem very real because you are very powerful beings and you built a very convincing illusion.

“Now is the time, the moment to allow it to dissolve.  To be momentarily humorous, try ‘Loving it to death’! Love will dissolve it and bring you all to awakening, your human destiny.

“YES, we keep on focusing on LOVE!  And you know why.  It is all that exists.  You are all caught up in It, embraced by It, enfolded within It – It is unavoidable; although It can be denied or ignored.  Now is the perfect moment to re-engage with It so that you can find your way lovingly Home.  You can delay as long as you choose; and to be unloving is to choose to delay.” (1)

I came across the passage in researching another subject.

And here I face a continuing dilemma.

I totally know what Saul is referring to but I despair of finding words for it.

The love he’s pointing at is not love as we know it. Yet what he’s pointing at remains a mystery until experienced. What to do?

I could say, “imagine you won a $50 million lottery. Feel the way you’d feel at that time.” And most of us have had the experience of exhilaration at winning something.

But the love that Saul is pointing at is beyond any winnings. It’s a realm apart from that. (2) It isn’t anything most of us have experienced in this lifetime (although I’d expect lightworkers to have experienced it the most).

It was certainly beyond my imagining. I was so impacted by it that you see me continuing to share about it as if it happened yesterday, (3) over and over again. What could induce such a strong desire to share?

He may be saying, love in whatever way you can until you experience higher-dimensional love. If that’s the case, that’d be fine.

I have no idea whether loving in that way would lead to it. But I’m open.

But for a deeper understanding of what he’s saying, we have to … well, I guess just accept that there is a love that washes away all sense or remembrance of injustice. There is a love that so nourishes and sustains us that our lives before and after it are discontinuous. It’s as if a mountain range suddenly extruded itself from the Earth, jutted up, and we find ourselves on top of it. Aha! This is what it’s like.

In fact, “on top of the world” must have been invented by someone who knew this transformative kind of love.

If I draw it up from my heart, where it resides, “love will dissolve” whatever troubles me. Ordinary love will not do this. Ordinary love is chased away by our troubles. “Your aim is to dissolve [them]; and Love is doing that through you.”

I keep returning to the matter because I can’t think of another that’s more important or redemptive.  It is just as our sources say:

“YES, we keep on focusing on LOVE!  And you know why.  It is all that exists.  You are all caught up in It, embraced by It, enfolded within It – It is unavoidable; although It can be denied or ignored.  Now is the perfect moment to re-engage with It so that you can find your way lovingly Home.”

I agree. On a higher dimension, we all of us exist in an Ocean of Love.

(2) What I called a realm we call a dimension. Transformative love spans the higher-dimensional ladder from the Fifth to the Seventh. Here’s Michael on that:

Steve: The space that I call transformative love, what dimension is it?

Archangel Michael: It is the seventh dimension.  (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Jan. 20, 2016.)

I personally have no knowledge or insight into its dimensionality. I just know it’s a world away from us. And burn to get back there.

See “Submerged in Love,” March 14, 2015, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/03/14/submerged-in-love/
, written a day after.

Steve, 2020: I don’t know why I didn’t record that it felt like an obstacle the size of a basketball was explosively ejected from my heart. Or that I was swept away by an inner Tsunami of Love and found myself in an Ocean of Love, because all happened.

I think I was too amazed at finding myself in this space and didn’t reflect on how it happened or on anything else but it. The only thing I really wanted to report on was it.

The Ladder of Consciousness: From Intellectuality to Experience to Realization – Part 1/5 – Steve Beckow

Jacob’s Ladder Jacob’s Dream ~ Artist Svitoza Nenyuk @ Fine Art America

The Ladder of Consciousness: From Intellectuality to Experience to Realization – Part 1/5

While events in other parts of the globe command our attention, I still feel the need to follow my own agenda of building a literature that will be helpful to lightworkers later on.

The subject of the ladder of consciousness is basic to my own spiritual practice. I think the subject is both universal and profitably known. I now delve into that subject.

“Dear ones, you intellectually understand, but must actually accept that you are so much more than you have been led to believe.” (1)

This comment in the Arcturian Group’s latest message nudged me to write a series on the difference in impact between intellectual, experiential, and realized knowledge, states of being which form a ladder of consciousness.

Intellectual Knowledge Lacks Motivating Power

I read somewhere – and cannot find the quote – that we make very little progress in any one lifetime in learning the lessons that karma brings us.

If that’s so, one of the reasons may be that mere intellectual knowledge lacks the power, the kick, the juice, or motivating power to move us to realize that changes are necessary and to make them.

We have to boost our knowledge from the merely intellectual to the experiential, which, in my opinion, is the first level strong enough to induce us to change and thence to the realizational, which makes change easier and more likely than otherwise.

We say we’re “moved to tears” or “won over” by a smile. We’re hardwired, I think, to respond to the way we feel. Therefore I assert that the experiential has more power to motivate, than the merely intellectual.

Intellectual knowledge is just a first step; Realization the last

The purpose of life is itself a realization: The realization of our Oneness with God. That is what all this pleasure and pain is building up to, as SaLuSa reminds us.

“Many souls are beginning to understand the purpose of life. It is the realization that you are more than your body, and that life is infinite and that you have your being in the energy that is God.” (2)

Our purpose lies in realizing that we are God. I am that I AM.

If life is about knowing ourselves as God, it’s not about just having intellectual knowledge of it but of having realized knowledge.

Many of our sources have either referred to this in passing or made it explicit. Let’s spend a moment listening to them make the case.

“Truth begins as intellectual knowledge, but can never manifest into expression until realized,” the Arcturian Group tell us. (3)

On another occasion, they inform us: “Some continue to understand ONEness as a mental concept or intellectual information, never allowing it to become their attained state of consciousness.” (4)

Elsewhere they add that “knowing a truth intellectually is only the first step toward attaining the consciousness of it.” (5) Realization, as they said, makes it their “attained state of consciousness.”

Tomorrow we’ll continue our look at the case they make.

(To be continued in Part 2, tomorrow.)

The Resurgence of the Divine Feminine – Part 4/4 – Steve Beckow

Image via Pinterest

***

The Resurgence of the Divine Feminine – Part 4/4

(Concluded from Part 3, yesterday.)

Free study of the Divine Mother and her Plan for the Golden Age, attached below.

How the Two Work Together

How do the Divine Feminine and Masculine work together in the balanced, androgynous person?

Archangel Michael tells us that the stillness that the Divine Masculine fuels the movement of love that the Divine Feminine is.

“When you speak to the masculine, to the Divine Masculine, you are speaking about the force and the power — not just the stillness, but the power – of that stillness that fuels the energy behind the movement.” (1)

The Divine Mother tells us that the Divine Feminine calls the Divine Masculine forth:

“To be truly masculine is extraordinarily beautiful. … It is the holding of energy, the ability of action, to protect, but what the masculine forgot, both personally and globally, is that they had need to feed the goddess within and without. Now that has been reawakened.

“As you reawaken the Divine Feminine, the Divine Feminine informs and demands of the Divine Masculine within to step forward so the old illusions and false paradigms of what the masculine are simply falls away.” (2)

So the reawakened Divine Feminine summons the Divine Masculine to take over from the male-dominant constructed self. She awakens the Divine Male. Gentlemen, take note.

A new stillpoint is being found, Tazjima’s sources advise us, which will lead us to wholeness. I imagine the subtlety of it is beyond words.

“As the threads of the energies of the divine feminine and the golden Christic light are now being interwoven into the tapestry of life upon the planet and into the heart centers of every living being, a new center point, a still point, is being sought out. In coming to still point, the energies of dark and light, female and male, flexibility and strength, will discover their need for each other in order to reemerge into wholeness.” (3)

Androgyny is the goal, that perfect balance of energy in which love and light are to be found, Matthew says.

“A civilization evolves by integrating aspects of both energies and advancing toward androgyny—balanced energy wherein love-light abides. The power of love-light is what motivates a third density civilization to end the control of their world by individuals whose energy is anchored in darkness, the absence of love-light. Helping the peoples succeed in transforming their world, dear lightworkers, is why you volunteered for this Earth journey.” (4)

The Divine Mother, who sets the agenda, sees the situation as reaching its balance. Whatever she can see or dream manifests:

“At the same time as you are shifting and ascending, the male population is finally embracing their Divine Feminine in the same way that many of the women are saying ‘I will have to embrace my Divine Masculine and move into action in new and different ways.’ It is reaching the balance.” (5)

Females and males are invited to balance their Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine.  We call that state androgyny.

This era will see the resurgence of the Divine Feminine on two levels. In the world, women are claiming equal place with men in all important fields and venues. Women are also taking the lead in areas where they may not have before. And they’re breaking new ground.

In the internal world, the male-dominant constructed self in the man is giving way to a balance of the inner Divine Feminine and Masculine. In the female, a flowering of both love and power is taking place.
