Connecting the Spiritual Dots

Hildegaard of Bingen’s mystical representation of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (See footnote 1) ~ Right.

When we come up with spiritual equivalencies, it allows us to link up different literatures.

And when we can do that, our learning accelerates and multiplies.

Also, having some other body of literature to compare ours to throws our own into relief. We see things about it that we might not have seen otherwise.

For me the most important equivalence in spirituality, taken broadly, is:  Father, Son, and Holy Ghost = Brahman, Atman, and Shakti.

Hindus have created a vast literature on the three Purushas or Divine Persons  – Brahman, Atman, and Shakti. Our tendency in the West might be not to use it because … well, you know. It’s not Christian (or Jewish or whatever).

Another approach might be to … just what I said … find the equivalencies and then scholarship, instead of going on in two solitudes, can draw from the one to explain the other. It becomes a dance and a symphony.

Hinduism’s literature is extensive. It’s both deep in parts and pleasurable in other parts. Its tolerance allows it to hold any number of seemingly incompatible points of view in one broad religion.

It’s multivariant, multi-path. It has something for everybody, while at the same time acting out themes in myth and storytelling which reflect deep spiritual truths.

We in the West would benefit by hooking their literature up with the teachings of Jesus on the Father (Brahman), Son (Atman), and Holy Ghost (Shakti) and of his followers such as Pseudo-Dionysius, St. John of the Cross, John Ruusbroec, etc.,

AND don’t forget Jesus’s interpreters in other faiths such as Sri Ramakrishna, Swami Prabhavananda and Paramahansa Yogananda

I personally have found the explanations for most of Jesus “hard sayings” in Hindu literature (save for St. John of the Cross).  Jesus says the truth in the pithiest of ways and Hindus then unfold their meaning – for me.

***

OK, OK. Give us some explanation of what this “Trinity” actually is.

The following summation of the purpose of life, etc., is based on a vision I had on February 13, 1987. (2) It illustrates what the notion of the Trinity was created for and how it operates.

My understanding from that vision and from all the books on the subject I read thereafter is that God, who fills up everything, wanted to know itself. And so God created a dream world.

When He enters that dream world, He styles himself the Mother.

Neither Father nor Mother has gender. They themselves use the term (as you can see on An Hour with an Angel) for educational purposes. (3)

The Mother is the only Being we can know. The Father is unknowable. So really all our dealings are usually with her.

The Mother creates, preserves, and destroys. She’s the one who decides to pass us on to the Father at long last or keep us here, learning more about who we are, where we come from.

Who cares what we learn, where we come from, who we are?  Let’s eat, drink, and be merry!

Well, God wanted to know itself, as we said. And if you think about it, God is silence, stillness, etc., and fills up everything. How is such a Being to know itself?

This is where the “Son” comes in, the Christ, the Atman, the Self, the Soul. That’s you and me, Children of God.

God the Father put a spark of itself inside the body created by God the Mother.  Our sole task in life everlasting is to fully realize who that spark is.

When we do, God meets God in that moment of our enlightenment. This is how God solves the puzzle of knowing itself.

Let’s listen to one sage, Bayazid of Bistun, describe the very moment for which all of this was created:

“I went from God to God, until they cried from me in me, ‘O thou I!’” (4)

“O thou I!” In the end, all that’s left is the Universal Subject, “I.”

“Only God sees God,” Ibn Arabi reminds us.  (5) If we totally understand that and if that meeting for which life was created has occurred, we attain an exalted state of enlightenment called “Sahaja Samadhi,” which is the culminating event of our Ascension.

We will all slowly evolve into that knowledge as the energies rise.  Sages in days gone by had to struggle for it. But we don’t.

After Sahaja, we’re in what Hindus call a state of liberation, mukti, or moksha. (They did not discuss dimensions millennia ago.)

We’ve left the realm of birth and death and where have we ended up? In what we know as the Fifth Dimension or higher.  There’s no birth and death in the higher realms.

***

Now can we relate that to the seven-chakra system connected to the Third Dimension?

Yes. Knowledge of the Son/Atman comes when the kundalini reaches the Fourth Chakra.

Knowledge of the Holy Ghost/Shakti/Mother comes when it reaches the Sixth.

Knowledge of the Father/Brahman comes when it reaches the Seventh.

Sahaja is beyond the Third-Dimensional chakra system. In more ways than one, it’s the door or portal to the higher dimensions.

It’s a full and permanent heart opening, which leaves us immersed forever in the Ocean of Love. In other words, when the door (hridayam) of the heart opens, we are left in a higher realm.

***

This business therefore of coming up with equivalencies speeds up our learning and extends it greatly.

It also promotes world by peace by taking away any grounds for dispute. If Allah=God=Brahman=Buddha Essence=Tao, etc., what’s there to fight about? We all work for the same Boss.

Oh, oh, one more equivalency? Some of you know what’s coming.

Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva = Rajas, Sattwa, and Thamas (the Gunas) = Creation, Preservation, and Transformation = Akar, Ukar, and Makar (AUM) = a subset of the Divine Mother, who is all movement and sound.

This statement of equivalency links up numerous literatures and could keep some scholars busy for a lifetime.

The discipline called cross-cultural spirituality is in the business of connecting the dots.

All of it is carried out in the name of creating a spirituality broad and tolerant enough that it can accommodate everyone, in Nova Gaia, a world at peace and a world that works for everyone.

(1) In the middle is the Son. The brown circle is the Mother. But the Son is not immersed in the Mother. The Son is immersed in the Father, the light grey circle, if you look closely.

Hildegaard has represented the relationships among the Members of the Trinity, the Purusha or Divine Beings.

Behind the Father is a dark purple background which represents what Hildegaard would probably have called the Godhead and what we call the One, as in Mother/Father One. The One, the Transendental embraces and contains everything.

Sharing of Experiences Needs to Spread – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

****

Sharing of Experiences Needs to Spread

I had the privilege and good fortune to attend Adyashanti’s sathsang in Vancouver recently.

And the extra good fortune to be able to ask him a question, one that led to a second, interesting discussion.

He talked about “reconciliation” as the spiritual action that would cause the lifting of duality. (In all cases here, please remember that my memory is not the best; I hope I get what he said right.)

Kathleen, who was there with me, said she would use the word “integration.”

I’d use the words “balance” and “equanimity.” I asked Adya how “reconciliation” related to these other two states of being.

He very adeptly replied that “reconciliation” on the one hand was holding two opposites in one’s mind passively but awaredly and allowing them to coalesce to produce a third non-dual outcome.

“Balance” and “equanimity” on the other hand, he described as a cessation of wanting and avoiding, due to the elimination of stressful factors. He called those factors “resistance” and I called them “core issues” or “vasanas.”

This was interesting enough but it led to an even more interesting discussion – and it’s really that one that I’d like to look at if you’d permit me.

In the course of answering the question, he mentioned how some people can have spiritual experiences and not have done any preliminary spiritual practice (like Ramana Maharshi, for instance) and others could have a deep spiritual experience and not know what just occurred.

That’s a circumstance that lightworkers may themselves face in the future. Or they may face people asking them to tell them what just happened to those people.

The Divine Mother warned us that people in general who had heart openings might not know what had just happened to them and might look around for explanations from – you guessed it – lightworkers and loveholders.

Adya shared his own experience of not knowing what had happened to him in his own enlightenment experience (probably Brahmajnana or seventh-chakra enlightenment).

I reminded him of a woman in his Vancouver sathsang fifteen years ago who said that she had had a deep spiritual experience, I believe while listening to heavy-metal music, and it absolutely altered her life. Not always in pleasant ways. She wanted to know from Adya whether she was psychotic.

I can think of other examples closer to home however.

“Bright Star” emailed me in midst of a spiritual experience which he thought was a heart attack. It turned out to be a heart opening. How would Bright Star have known what was happening to him? These experiences don’t come with a manual.

Another example. Even though I’ve studied enlightenment for many years, even though I know that when the kundalini reaches the fourth chakra, one has a first-stage enlightenment experience (spiritual awakening, stream entering) ……….

………. when it actually happened to me, I had no idea what just happened. (1)

The kundalini reached the fourth chakra and all of a sudden there was this explosion as if a large impediment was blown out of my heart. Then torrential love flowed, an inner tsunami of love. That lasted off and on for the better part of a year.

But at no time when it happened did I put two and two together. At no time did I realize that the kundalini reaching the fourth chakra must bring with it a first-stage enlightenment experience. I totally overlooked the fact.

It wasn’t until a month later that I said to Michael that I had not experienced a fourth-chakra awakening and he said, oh yes, you have.  Here’s that discussion:

Archangel Michael: I am suggesting that you are [your kundalini is] probably between the fourth and fifth [chakras].

Steve: But I haven’t had an experience of the fourth chakra that I’m aware of, have I?

AAM: Oh, yes, you have!

SB: What would it have been? The heart opening?

AAM: The heart opening is the blessing in which you became more clearly aware of your infinite, eternal Self. (2)

Not my Self as a brilliant light or as my chosen form of God. But my Self as an inner torrent or tsunami of Love.

So Adya didn’t get it in his seventh-chakra experience. I didn’t get it in my fourth-chakra experience. Bright Star didn’t get it. The “heavy metal” woman didn’t get it. It frequently happens that people don’t get the nature of their experience.

Often there’s no one we or they can turn to for an explanation. And the people we do turn to could steer us in inaccurate and unfortunate directions.

That’s why the more we talk about our spiritual experiences, the better able we’ll be to interpret what happens to us or others when it occurs.

In past years, it hasn’t been fashionable to discuss one’s own or another’s experiences. And certainly we don’t want to invite ridicule from skeptics.

But I assert that we now need to get beyond that way of thinking (but, still, with prudence) because people will be turning to us for information and explanations.

On the awareness path, which Adya follows as well, one routinely shares one’s experiences.

That’s what most of the conversations between two folks on the awareness path turn out to be about. We call it “comparing notes.” This happened to me; here’s what I did with it; and here’s what I got from it.

The conversation about spiritual experiences needs to spread. We need to be conversant in the subject so that when the mass of people turn to us for information or explanations, we can either interpret their experiences ourselves or steer them to useful sources or helpful people.


To be conversant with Ascension as well as Disclosure and Abundance, you may wish to research the First Contact library of quotations, here:

The woman in question had no one she knew to ask until she discovered Adya. My agony of not knowing lasted three hours; hers lasted much longer.

Feeling or Philosophy? – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Artist Eva Ruiz

****

Feeling or Philosophy?

I’ve said that I believe that, for us humans, the most important thing to us seems to be how we feel.

It even overpowers how we think, in my opinion.

We don’t often put matters this way. We usually say we have a reason for how we feel and what we do.  We may even talk about our philosophy being our prime motivator or our compassion for people, etc.

But the reasons and philosophy I think are secondary. First we act on the basis of how we feel and then we create the reasons.

I saw myself feeling really grumpy today and I watched that feeling dictate how I acted towards those around me. I was short and aggressive and ornery. And I saw clearly in the moment that there was no other reason for how I behaved other than that I felt grumpy. How I felt dictated what I did.

If I’m right in this, then it suddenly becomes important to pay attention to how I’m feeling, how I’d like to feel, and what I can do to alter how I feel towards that ideal. And I’d be well-advised to look at the means of feeling the way I want to feel. Gambling, stealing, hurting people are not good means of ending up feeling better.

Michael told me some time ago that I’d been neglecting drawing love up from my heart. Consequently the degree to which the heart is open was decreasing.

Given that that single act of drawing love up from my heart and sending it out to the world promises the greatest impact on the way I feel, why is it that I don’t do it all day – as much as possible, in every spare moment?

I distract myself with sensory and egoic pleasures all of which are turned to in the hope that they will … make me feel better. But they seldom succeed as strategies and they produce residue, complication, and disappointment.

Sensory and egoic pleasures are usually not deep enough to really touch and motivate us, except for such short-term activities as getting something to eat or going for a walk.

But really deep feelings can have us get over our fear and sign the Declaration of Independence or ride into the Valley of Death.

In the face of such deep feelings, our sensory and egoic pleasures are set off to one side.

Our thoughts are dismissed. We say we’ve “made up our minds.” Our deeply-felt feelings take precedence and decide the matter.

And yet, as I’ve said before, very few of us are consciously aware of how we feel. To the extent we’re unaware, we resemble stimulus-response machines rather than truly reflective and aware human beings.

Knowing how we feel is right up there in my scale of values with knowing how to listen. Both important skills, in my view, to navigate what awaits us as lightworker leaders.

Most of Us Are or Have Been Angels – Part 2/2 – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Most of Us Are or Have Been Angels – Part 2/2

As I said yesterday, I’m reproducing a two-part series from 2014 on our angelic background because … it feels like it’s time to be discussing these matters.

The best time seems to be before Disclosure, after which we’ll find ourselves front and center without knowing why or what to do.

The first point to be made, as this series does is: Most lightworkers on the planet at the present time have some connection with the angelic kingdom.

Why make that point? Because we don’t know who we are, collectively, and so we lack cohesion and confidence in ourselves. But we are angels.


(Concluded from Part 1.)

(2) Those who Descended from the Angelic Kingdom to Assist with This Ascension

Before we turn to our identity as angels, I’d like to spend a moment looking at why the celestials have not told us about this before. And I’d like to look as well at how they are more and more required to let go of intervening in our affairs and let us test our wings, so to speak.

The celestials have appeared to work their way up to revealing that a large number of light workers here to assist with Ascension are angels. Archangel Michael told us that he had not revealed this fact before because we were not ready to hear it:

“This is the circle of 6 billion-plus that I chose to do this with. So, yes. You have gathered from far and wide, seraphs, archangels, those from the Outer Forces, the Inner Forces. It is a gathering the magnitude of which you are just glimpsing. …

“So then you say to me, ‘Well, Lord, why have you not spoken of this before?’ Because you weren’t ready. Period. Within that sense of lack of self-worth and the ego out of control, you weren’t ready to have this conversation. You weren’t ready to be in that place of the balance, which is the place that you create from.” (1)

Lest we think that only the celestials say this, here is the Arcturian Group saying it as well:

“You are Divine beings in your real identity and therefore have infinite sources of ideas and ways of doing and being. The problem has been that you have not known this and most were not ready to know this until now. In your ignorance you have believed yourselves to be less than the lowest. [Eg., “sinful,” “born in sin,” etc.]

“Churches taught that you were worms in the dust until you performed certain rituals or believed certain doctrines. In your ignorance, you accepted this, freely giving your power to those who would then claim it for themselves, convincing you that only they knew what was best for you.“ (2)

The fact that we are ready also has an impact on the way events are played out. While humanity was still in its infancy, the celestials could intervene in our affairs.Angels11

But now that we’re entering into partnership with them, they’re required to stand back and allow us to work things out.

Archangel Michael discusses that here:

“We give you a little hint. We give you a little nudge. Sometimes we give you a very big nudge. But when it comes down to your decisions, the collective and the individual, we do not interfere.

“There were times, particularly in the density of the very dark times, when the illusions of humanity were so dark and so enmeshed that we were permitted more what you would think of as interference and what we would think of as protection and intervention.

“But those paradigms, those false grids, those false belief systems are disintegrating even as we speak, as you begin — and you are already underway in your Ascension process.

“So are we in greater partnership? Yes. Are we in less what you would think of as interference or intervention? Yes.” (3)

During 2013, the celestials, galactics and ascended masters began more and more revealing that the largest number of lightworkers were in fact from the angelic kingdom.

In April 2013, the angels, speaking through Tazjima, called us “our human angels, who have bravely embodied on mother earth in this time of glorious transition.” (4)

In June 2014, Jesus called us “the angels of the new age” and revealed that:

“You have come to the Earth to usher in the new time, and you come in peace. You no longer come here with the sword of the ego unsheathed, you come here in peace. Now is the time to again take up your strength and to dare to believe in yourself.

“Yes, you are that angel of peace, because in you the cycle of lives has come to completion: from dark to light, from ego to heart, and you now want to embrace the heart based consciousness that is the result of all that experience.” (5)

Angels 7821The Pleiaidians through Bella Capozzi informed us that “you are each precious angels in human form. You are here with a purpose, each and every one – a purpose most unique and unlike that of any other. You are on earth as representatives of the many cultures and races who watch you with avid fascination.” Gradually the veil is falling away revealing the truth to us.

“You are a diverse community at the the very least. With the dismantling of the veil, this diversity and it’s accompanying intricacies are being gradually revealed to you along with your memories, your contractual obligations, your origins and the true facts about your history. For those who chose to take on a more cumbersome veil of forgetfulness, you have known yourselves only as your current, perceptually limited human self. …

“It has been difficult, no question about it. Yet the truth is that you are so very much more than you ever might imagine!” (6)

And Archangel Michael has also revealed the truth: “Most of you are certainly of the angelic realm. That is where you have come from, not as a step down, but as a sacred service to break the old illusions of Earth, so that the new third reality can emerge.” (7)

I asked him if he was saying many humans were formerly angels and he replied in the affirmative:

“And they will be angels when they relinquish their physical forms and complete their missions upon the planet.” (8)

That is comforting. I don’t particularly want to be bound to the lower dimensions after my mission is complete.

“Know that you are the agents, and the angels, of change,” he requested of us. “You are anchoring Nova Earth.” (9)

He suggested that “there are many of you who have retained the quality of your angelic self. And you know them. You look around. You even say to them, ‘You are such an angel!’ There is a sweet, kind light about these beings.”

“And they tend to know who they are. And they tend to know that they are an Earth angel for a while in human form, and then they will simply return. And as they shed the human form mantle, they will resume their angelic form and simply continue on.” (10)

Dare to be Fully Angelic

Now the Divine Mother calls on us to awaken to the knowledge of who we are and embrace the fullness of our being.

“Sweet angels, it is time for you to know, to embrace, to engender the fullness of your being, the delight, the magnificence, the innocence and the wonder and the power, the will, the truth of who you are.” (11)Angels 214

“Mary” through Pamela Kribbe challenges us: “Dare to be fully here as the angel that you are, and to fully receive what you need to shine your light.” (12)

Archangel Michael tells us how to do that: to invite our angelic self back in:

“Do not forget to invite your own angelic self to be with you. This is not your higher self. If you want to think in the way you do, in terms of layers, think of your angelic self as above your higher self and pull them all in—to your core, to your heart, to your feet, to your toes. Because our purpose in speaking of this is for you to acknowledge and to know your own being as well.” (13)

Everything about our process of Ascension seems to be gradually unfolding – until it reaches a flash point, after which we’re told things will move quickly. Our unfolding knowledge of ourselves is no exception.

Whether we came from the angelic kingdom long ago to experience life in form and have lived as humans ever since or whether we came from that kingdom recently to help with the first ever physical and mass Ascension, the fact remains that we already carry an angelic inheritance.

And the time approaches when that inheritance will be actualized, by energetic washes, by the trigger of codes in our DNA, and by the acquisition of our light bodies.

“We are No Different than You”: The Galactic Role in Earth’s Ascension – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Pleiadian Agenda by Barbara Hand Clow, channel of Satya, the Pleiadian Guardian of the Alcyone Records

****

“We are No Different than You”: The Galactic Role in Earth’s Ascension

I’d like to continue looking at the role the galactics are playing in our Ascension.

SaLuSa of Sirius told us in 2011:

“The Forces of Light have never gathered together on Earth in such numbers for millennia of time. This is of course in accordance with the Divine Plan.” (1)

“Millennia of time” ago, they began this latest round of human habitation on Earth, the Pleiadian Light explains:

“There are so many extraterrestrial world cultures supporting your growth now. They have supported the evolution of your world’s development from the beginning.” (2)

They introduced the present human species – homo sapiens – to Earth, which then took over from Cro-Magnon humans, according to SaLuSa. No, evidently it wasn’t Darwinian selection that created the modern species.

“You do not exist by some freak of nature, and are not the result of natural selection, but purposefully and lovingly created to exist in your environment.

“You are a special species of Humans that have taken over from Cro-Magnon Man, and have been genetically engineered to allow for a speeding up of your evolution.

“That we would say has been particularly successful and the proof lies in how many of you now stand in readiness for Ascension.” (3)

On another occasion he adds:

“You will find that Galactic Federation members are no strangers to your early evolution, and in fact have had more than a hand in it. There is more of a connection between us than you might imagine, and we have had a part to play in your genetic engineering resulting in what you are today. When you get to see the various types of Beings in our Federation, you will marvel at how many have a close resemblance to how you look now.” (4)

This latest mission began 60 years ago, “when Earth was in [her] death throes,” Matthew Ward tells us. (5) SaLuSa puts the date much further back, “hundreds of years ago.” (6) The difference probably lies in what form or level of intervention is being discussed.

SaLuSa describes the evolutionary attainments of the members of the Galactic Federation of Light:

“The Galactic Federation is comprised of civilisations of ascended Beings carrying the status of Masters. They are spiritually evolved and their energy is of Love and Light, with the intent of spreading it far and wide. We act on the Divine orders that direct our activities, and we are committed to helping civilisations such as yours. …

“You are on the verge of a momentous leap in your evolution. We are here to travel with you, and even beyond as you make your way through the next level of dimensions. Nothing will be allowed to interfere with your progress, and it is our responsibility to ensure you safely achieve Ascension.” (7)

“We are a massive force for good,” he assures us. (8)

“You will understand that the Galactic Federation is not some marauding group of Space Beings. We are organized to police the Universe, helping young civilizations evolve without interference. We carry out the bidding of those who have the ear of God, and carry out his plans for evolution.” (9)

SaLuSa hinted at other galactic federations working alongside the GFOL.

“You will find that many different types of Beings from other civilizations work side by side for the Galactic Federation of Light. We enjoy the knowledge and differences that other Extraterrestrials bring with them that we can all share. Sharing is the operative word that expresses everything that we do, and it is done for the good of all.” (10)

They’re not much different from us, save that they’re more advanced in spiritual growth, say SaLuSa.

“We are all connected, as One in the consciousness of the Creator. In essence we are no different than you, as we all come from the Source of All That Is. We too are Spiritual Beings who at this time simply exist in a higher dimension, because we resonate with that particular vibration. You will soon join us.” (11)

In another message, he names some of them:

“In the past you will have read [how] the Venusians, Arcturians, Pleiadians and Andromedans, who serve with us, are mostly associated with past contact with Earth.” (12)

The Arcturians name more of them:

“The beloved members of the Pleiades, Sirius, Arcturus, Andromeda and Antares, as well as the Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Light, the Angelic Kingdom, the Ascended Masters, and the awakened members of Earth have all joined together to assist Gaia in the fulfillment of Her transformation.” (13)

Here is Archangel Michael’s list:

“You have gathered from far and wide, seraphs, archangels, those from the Outer Forces, the Inner Forces. It is a gathering the magnitude of which you are just glimpsing.” (14)

SaLuSa reassures us that “we are Spiritual Beings exactly as you are, and all from the Source.”

“We are not different just because we come from other civilisations, beyond the fact that we are more evolved. That applies to all members of the Galactic Federation and we act out of service to you as our brothers and sisters.” (15)

Michael described the coordination of actions that must take place to succeed, considering the dark’s actions and our own unpredictable free will:

“Everybody is collaborating. No, not by memo, but telepathically, energetically. It is like the finest ballet or the sweetest orchestra.

“The symphony is heard throughout the universe. And when there is a single discordant note — and normally that comes from humanity — it is addressed immediately.” (16)

SaLuSa tells us what future lies ahead of us:

“We of the Galactic Federation are helping you close the gap between what you are now, and will be when you acquire full consciousness. The sooner we can invite you to join us as equal partners, the quicker we can move onto the next journey that will take us into other Galaxies and Universes.

“They seem to be never ending, as there is no end to creation as we see it. Can you imagine the numberless opportunities that lie before you, as there is certainly no limit to the adventures that you can take? Life is everywhere around you at different stages of evolution, and it is our role to serve others who like you are now making their way through the different dimensions.

“It is exciting and rewarding and in no way imposed upon you. We are after all not the only organisation that exists at our level. Yet we are of a size that you would find unimaginable, comprising many millions of personnel. Yes, they are all ascended Beings and would not otherwise be allowed to join us.” (17)

Thus galactic assistance and oversight has been available to us since the beginning. Some of the civilizations that are here to help us come from Andromeda, Antares, Arcturus, Pleiades, Sirius, and Venus. Others come from planets in other universes, such as Xares and CCC. And still others from the angelic kingdom.

Said SaLuSa: “We … are your future selves, and also your family from the stars.” (18)

The same galactic civilizations that seeded the planet with our homo-sapiens forebears have now come to host our graduation to a truly-galactic role in cosmic civilization.

Depleted uranium, introduced into the atmosphere from several regional wars, would have been enough to kill this planet off.

Steve Beckow: If the galactics had not neutralized depleted uranium, would this planet have died?

Archangel Michael: Yes. Now let me explain. It is not just that she would have died. It would have been that her will to continue on would not have been there.

Most of Us Are or Have Been Angels – Part 1/2 – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

****

Most of Us Are or Have Been Angels – Part 1/2

I’m reproducing a two-part series from 2014 on our angelic background because … it feels like it’s time to be discussing these matters.

The best time seems to be before Disclosure, after which we’ll  find ourselves front and center without knowing why or what to do.

The first point to be made, as this series does is: Most lightworkers on the planet at the present time have some connection with the angelic kingdom.

Why make that point? Because we don’t know who we are, collectively, and so we lack cohesion and confidence in ourselves. But we are angels.


I’d like to turn our attention to the rich vein of knowledge we’ve been given in the last three years about the angelic kingdom. Why is it relevant? Because apparently most of us reading these articles are angels.

Either we descended from the angelic kingdom long ago to participate in the experiment of form or else we’ve incarnated specifically to assist with this Ascension.

The angels through Tazjima tell us that “many of you are angelic beings, sweet, gentle and kind.” (1) The source who calls herself “Mary,” through Pamela Kribbe, tells us that “you have been angels yourself at one time and, deep down, you still are. From the core of your being runs a channel to the angelic realm.” (2)

Let’s look at these two cases.

(1) Those who Descended from the Angelic Kingdom Long Ago

Archangel Michael explains that the greatest number of us descended from the angelic kingdom long ago.

“When you emanated as love or light from the heart of One into that light form, for the greatest percentage of you – there would be such a small fraction that it is really not worth speaking of in this discussion — the first form you assumed was angelic.

“Now, some of you emerged, can we say, as the first wave. Some of you emerged as seraphim. Some of you emerged as archangels. Some of you emerged as angels.” (3)

On another occasion he says:

“Each of you, my beloved brothers and sisters, have begun your journey, not only as a spark of light, not only as an emanation from the heart of One, but as an angel—some of you, a few of you, even as archangels, or one of the keepers of the dominions or the principalities or the virtues.” (4)

We’ve already travelled through all the angelic kingdoms, he explains.

“As you have left the heart of One, you have traveled through, think of it, all the angelic kingdoms or spheres. Now, most of you, of course, did not become or stop or remain as a seraphim or an archangel or a dominion. But many of you, most of you, have certainly spent time, if I can put it that way, in the angelic realm.” (5)

Following that, we formless beings agreed to participate in the experiment of form, he tells us:

“And then, yes, you have incarnated. You have been the adventurous ones, you have been the explorers, and you believed in yourself strongly enough to say to the Mother/Father/One, ‘I am going to go. I will assume form. I will know the joy of being in form and physicality, and then I will come home and resume my form.’

“Well, some of you have not resumed in eons. But that matters not. Whether you are starseed or hybrid or Earth-keeper, you still are angelic. And this is something we want you to remember, to spend time during this process of Ascension incorporating, inviting in, all of your glorious aspects.” (6)

Why we did that, Archangel Michael reminds us, was out of love.

“You have, again, in service to the One, gone and assumed human forms, or other forms in other planetary systems, always because of love. This is the primary motivator. It isn’t about punishment. … It isn’t about doing service as you think of, in terms of military terms. It is about love.” (7)

“Mary” tells us, “you have come to the adventure of life on Earth of your own free will.” (8) Why we came here was, she says, was “to learn, to have adventure, and to experience all manner of things. It is meant to be a joyful adventure.” (9)

These then are the angels that have been on Earth for a very long time – in fact, since Earth’s earliest days. They’ve been called the Creator Race. (10) Jesus explained to us how and why Gaia was created:

“Often we have talked to you, and particularly my beloved Mother has talked to you, about the creation of this wonderful planet of Gaia and how it was created as a planet of Love and a planet of peace, my friends. …

“In the very creation and the essence of this mighty being called Gaia was the formation of a place, a physical experience of such diversity and incredible beauty that the angels would come and play here and know what it was to have a physical experience of Love.” (11)

Commander Ashira describes this original group that came to furnish the setting that Gaia was.

“There was an original group called the Creator Race on Earth – and it wasn’t as small as many of you are thinking. Was it billions? No. But it was significant. … This was not simply one generation – it was many generations.

“So there were many generations of the Creator Race coming into form – either as Starseed or Angelics – into form to create what would be the experience of Love, of joy, of community, of temperance, on Earth. Now if you think of it as the various stages that you are aware of – industrial, agro, even your information age, your electronic age – well, you are much much older than you think.” (12)

This then is the first group of angelic beings who came to Earth or Gaia in the far distant past and are here again today.

Tomorrow we’ll look at those who came from the angelic kingdom directly and specifically in this lifetime to assist with this ground-breaking Ascension.

It Ain’t Venus; It’s Them Arcturians – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Vision of The Heart ~ Meghan Oona Clifford

It Ain’t Venus; It’s Them Arcturians

I mentioned to KM that I’d be posting my comment to him here. The matter seems to be of general interest.

KM suggested that the object might be Venus and asked me to follow up on my report of the sighting with more scientific studies before being conclusive about it.

That’s undoubtedly needed, but not my mission. Sorry.

The discussion helped me clarify my role in things and I appreciate KM for having asked it.

Perhaps let me post this answer to the Venus question and then let me move on from that particular subject, if you’d be so kind.


KM,

Think about it for a minute, because I thought of Venus in the beginning too.

Venus revolves around the Sun, as we do. It has a cycle. It’s sometimes here in the night sky; sometimes there.

But this ship has not varied its position in the sky for perhaps the seven years I’ve been absentmindedly gazing at it.

I was saying to myself, hey, this ship is in the same place each and every night. Venus does not do that.

I asked Sanat and Michael and they both said it’s an Arcturian lightship. (1)  But you believe what you like.  I have no interest in making a great matter out of it.

I write on many topics and can’t possibly follow all of them up. I cast a thread and others need to pick it up. Or not.

Let someone else, whose mission it is, follow it up.

I’m not an activist or a doer. I’m a writer and a thinker.

I’d like to post on this because it seems of general interest.  [I.e., I’ve been deluged with emails about Venus.]

Namaste, my friend.

Steve


Unless you can prove my less-than-elementary astronomy wrong, please allow me to excuse myself now, with respect, from this particular discussion.

I am still convinced. It ain’t Venus. It’s them Arcturians. (2)

(1) Steve:  The lightship that is on the southwest horizon from sunset to 8:48; is that an Arcturian lightship?

AAM: Yes it is.

Steve: And, what is its mission… Just to show the flag?

AAM: That is right. It is more of an observation vehicle and not everyone was fully aware of it but you most certainly are. …

Steve: It’s probably the one Sanat Kumara talked to me about a whole bunch of years ago.

AAM: … A long time ago, yes. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, March 28, 2018.)

Archangel Michael: [We’re in a] shift from the old 3rd dimensional human being, to, can we say, a global, interdimensional, transdimensional galactic human. (“Archangel Michael: It’s Time to Let Go of the Old,” Oct. 22, 2012, athttp://the2012scenario.com/the-2012-scenario/what-role-are-the-angels-playing/archangel-michael-its-time-to-let-go-of-the-old/.)

(2) The same precious ones who turned the lights red every day so I could cross what Kathleen called a “dangerous corner.”

Every time I approached a certain pedestrian crossing light during the time I lived in Kathleen’s building (2014-6), I’d encounter two red lights stopping oncoming traffic. It was kind of like a red carpet. I’d sail across the intersection, feeling like a king and waving at the lights as if they were the Arcturians.

Michael said the Arcturians would signal their presence to me every day in this way. Kathleen and Sara are my witnesses.

Why did they do it? To wake me up, I think. To get me accustomed to them, ahead of events. To prepare me, as a writer/internet journalist, to write about them later. That’s apparently why I came.

Therefore, who says they don’t signal their presence? A ship a few thousand miles above us every night in the evening sky for you and me to see, and for me anyways, a daily signal of their presence?  They’re leaving their calling cards.

The Dark Night of the Soul – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Sacred ~ Sheri Howe ~ oil painting

****

The Dark Night of the Soul

I stumbled across this article from 2014. It may assist anyone feeling spiritually “dry” and thinking God has abandoned them.

Many people use the phrase “dark night of the soul” to refer to simply a tough time. But St. John invented it to mean something much different from that.

The “dark night of the soul” is an expression that St. John of the Cross used to describe three stages in the aspirant’s journey to what he calls “the state of perfection.” (1)

The rigorous discipline that St. John and others followed to achieve enlightenment is not necessary for us in the end times. Because some contemporary sources are using the term these days, I look at the original meaning here.

The first dark night of the soul, according to St. John, is the purification of the senses through the deprivation of all sensory objects, which takes us out of our knowledge of the external world and plunges us into a form of darkness.

The second dark night is the sensing of God through faith alone, deprived of external light.

And the third dark night is the communication of God to the aspirant, which happens in the darkness of unknowing.

Some of our sources are pointing to this period of time, prior to the Tsunami of Love and before Ascension, as being in whole a dark night of the soul. And there may be readers who are experiencing it as such and wondering why?

One of the sources is the Arcturians through Sue Lie, who used the term to refer to a cleansing process, just as St. John of the Cross did in his description of the first dark night. They tell us:

“In order to complete the process of Ascension you must go through the dark night of the soul. …

“The dark night of the soul is the final cleansing that must occur before you can live within the NOW of Ascension. This dark night of the soul is when you go through your daily life being fully aware of what you are doing wrong, aware of your fear, aware of your anger, aware of your pain.” (2)

“You must see yourself,” they say. “You must be aware of what you are thinking, what you are saying, what you are doing and WHY. Why are you thinking that? Why are you saying that? Why are you doing that?” (3)

This dark night of the soul, they tell us, “is quite uncomfortable but very informational.” What are we being informed about? We are wiping the slate clean by seeing that “there is no one else you can blame.”

“It was no one’s fault. No one and nothing did it to you. You created your reality. Through creating your reality, you first needed to bring to the surface the parts of you that could not participate in the creation of the reality of planetary Ascension.” (4)

We emerge from this dark night taking full responsibility for our lives. And why is that important? Because, as far as I’m aware, not until we acknowledge full responsibility for everything that happened to us can we release Third Dimensionality. Thus the dark night of the soul that the Arcturians refer to is a time in which all our false beliefs of victimization are coming up to be released.

Another source is Mary through Pamela Kribbe, who uses the phrase more as St. John did. Souls go through many lifetimes seeking God outside themselves.

“You have tried to find the Light by gaining worldly power or possessions. You have tried to find the Light by creating a big ego and gaining recognition from the world. And you have tried to find the Light by losing yourself in romantic relationships; by trying to merge with another soul. These are really the stages that every soul goes through on its evolutionary journey.” (5)

But, according to Mary, “at some point, the soul discovers that those things do not work, and then the soul goes through a deep inner crisis” and here is where the dark night ensues.

“As it is maturing, it discovers deep emotions of loneliness, separation, and fear, and there is a growing awareness that nothing outside itself can fill the void. This stage of a soul’s journey can be called ‘the dark night of the soul.’ The soul can not lose itself any more in anything external, and yet it does not know how to nurture itself, how to go within.

“This is when loneliness can hit you hardest, and when you are at this point, as often happens in relationships, you realize you can not find outside yourself what you are really seeking. So there is no other road to follow than the road that leads to your heart.” (6)

The aspirant then turns inwards to find the Light, Mary says.

“Home is within you all, and when you open the doors of your heart, the Light will shine so brightly! Your Light will bring joy to others, and you will joyfully connect with other people, but you will also be at peace when you are alone.

“You will not need other people to be fulfilled, but it will be an experience of enrichment and abundance to meet them, especially soulmates.” (7)

There’s no mistake that Mary should call this an opening of the doors of your heart because Ascension does result in a permanent heart opening. (8) The soul that we are then shines through us in a way that isn’t possible while the heart aperture (hridayam) is closed.

So Mary uses the phrase “dark night of the soul” to mean a turning away from the external light and a seeking of the Light in the darkness within.

We’re at a place, I believe, where external things can no longer satisfy. I’ve heard from many lightworkers that sensory things no longer appeal to then.

So the way Mary uses the phrase is to indicate a turning away from the external and a seeking of the Kingdom of Heaven (the Mental Plane or Fifth Dimension) within.

Finally Archangel Gabrielle referred to the dark night of the soul last summer. She asked:

“What do you do when you are in [a] dark room? Because what you are really referring to is that dark night of the soul.

“[Call] for us. And we will respond.

“Embrace yourself. Hug yourself, literally, as you have never hugged yourself before. Appreciate, love, regard, honor yourself as you never have.” (9)

Why did we put ourselves in this dark room?

“You put yourself into the dark room — yes, sometimes with great help — so that you would break through this illusion of isolation, of separation, of being alone, because it simply is not so.” (10)

And now, she says, we are saying “I am fed up, and I won’t do this anymore!”

“And it doesn’t mean that you are getting rid of or throwing out your entire spiritual journey! You are saying, ‘I am done with this illusion, and I want the totality of my integrated self. I’ve had enough!’

“And to this, we say, thank God! Thank Mother/Father One. Let it go.” (11)

So Archangel Gabrielle uses the phrase to point to a breaking out of the prison of illusion we’ve built for ourselves, the illusory sense of separation from God which caused our original isolation from the higher realms in the first place.

So if we’re feeling somewhat desolate at times, and wondering why this late in the game we feel this way, perhaps remember that we’re experiencing the illusion once again, coming up to be experienced and let go of.

The really ironic thing is that we go back by the way we came in AND it feels the same leaving as entering. (12)

Previously we concluded that we were separate from God and descended into more and more loneliness. Now we’re re-encountering the illusory vasanas and beliefs that we created as we rise out of them. But the experience of loneliness and sometimes desperation feels exactly the same, whether we’re descending or ascending.

We probably think we should be feeling better by now and we’re not. Certainly we will when the Tsunami hits. But until then, we’re not feeling better because we’re re-experiencing the illusory beliefs and very real vasanas we created in our descent, as part of our ascent.

The same loneliness and sometimes despair are now coming up to be removed. We’re making our exit from the illusion of separation and at times it may feel like a dark night of the soul.

(12) This is not mystical. Imagine we have a fear vasana. We created that vasana because we felt fear and never wanted to experience fear again. But now, when we want to exit the vasana, we have to do it by experiencing the very thing we resolved not to experience again. So entering and leaving feel the same. Ironic.

Who are Ashtar and the Ashtar Command? – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Shiva – The Transcendental Energy @ Lets Paint Peace

Who are Ashtar and the Ashtar Command?

 By 

Credit: Mensajes de la Federación Galáctica y Ashtar Command – Blogger

Cdr Ashtar’s discussion of himself and the Ashtar Command deserves a separate post by itself.

Notice his assertion that he comes from beyond the Twelfth Dimension, “out of the realm of human experience.” 

That means the Transcendental, about which I’m coming to see I (perhaps we) know very, very little.

Ashtar “appear[s] in human form” but, coming from the planes above the Twelfth, there’s no need for him to assume any kind of form.

Cdr Ashtar: If you were to think of me as a man — because in many ways, as you know, I am [of the] Adam Kadmon [template], Ad-man, hu-man — we share this. (1) …

The place that I feel most at home, above and below, is in the new Jerusalem. Failing that, where I feel most at home is when I return to the heart of One, when I sit with my beloved brothers and Father, our Mother. Yes, like you, of course, I do that daily. But the time will come when all of us will return to Source, to that pure light.

In the meanwhile, I am known from many places — Arcturus, Venus — for I have been part of the Kumara effort, shall we say. Pleiadian sector is one of my favorite playgrounds. I thank you for asking who I am, because not many do. …

I am a working man, albeit different, although I appear in human form, often. So, I am like you.

I cherish my family. I cherish my workers. I cherish my friends. …

I am a commander of an entire fleet, and that is a sacred honor and a trust that has been given to me….

You can tell when I am channeling, because of the connection with Lord Sananda. And so anything that I bring forth has need to be in alignment with those that I serve, with the mission that I have chosen. So when it feels as if I am laying down the law, that I am ordering anybody to do anything, then you can trust that this is not me. …

What we have done is we have brought our vibrations to the fifth dimension in order to be at a place where we can meet you. If you are to think of the human realm and what is available currently to you, if you were looking for me, I would be out of the realm of human experience. So, let us make that clear as well. But if you were to…

SB: That means above the twelfth dimension, is that correct?

A: That is correct. (2)

Steve Beckow: Some people may wonder exactly what coalitions are here – and I expect there are a large number, but perhaps we could restrict ourselves to the major coalitions.

The Galactic Federation is here, the Ashtar Command, the United Forces of the Outer Galaxies. Can you tell us what the relationships are among those? For instance, is the Ashtar Command part of the Galactic Federation of Light?

Ashtar: Yes. It is.

SB: What distinguishes the Ashtar Command from the GFOL generally?

A: Well, I would like to say that it is me, but I do not think that that would be acceptable to my colleagues – at all!

I have been called an impetuous young man by some [Steve: by the Divine Mother, actually], but in fact that is not my way at all. I am very much the shepherd and the peacekeeper. We are colleagues, we are allies. And what you don’t tend to think of is that we are friends. In many cases there is a lineage and a connection in terms of how we have traveled and emanated throughout the universe.

So it is a very cooperative relationships. It is not what some think, that one is doing something and the other is not aware of it. That is simply not the case at all. We are a very cohesive alliance. And within that, of course, there are alliances.

So, the Ashtar Command, as you think of it, is an arm, or a fleet. As you know there are millions of ships – no, not all directly above your planet, but certainly in circulation very close by. And so there is a great deal of logistics that need to be worked on between the intergalactics and the Galactic Federation of Light. And my command is part and parcel of that.

We tend to work as an independent arm because we have our own mission and purpose. And our mission and purpose is very specifically working with Disclosure and working with the arrival of many forces – what we would call forces – upon the planet of Earth, and beginning that process of cohabitation, of collegiality, of exchange, of technological upgrades.

But do not think that we are not all working together. That simply would be a grave misunderstanding. And you have pretty much covered it. Those are the umbrella groups, you know. The Intergalactics, the Unified Forces of the Outer Galaxies, the Galactic Federation of Light, and yes, my command.

SB: Some people say that the Galactic Federation and the Galactic Federation of Light are different. Is that the case?

A: Yes. But it is a distinction that we make, but you don’t need to.

SB: Can you explain that, please?

A: You have a situation on Earth where you would have various arms of your … your exploratory forces. So, for example, you would have Marines that work with the Navy. Well, the Galactic Federation works with the Galactic Federation of Light. So think of it as a … an arm that is working cooperatively but is independent in terms of their organization, their directive, their mission and purpose.

SB: You mention galactics and intergalactics. Can you explain to us what the difference is between the two, please?

A: It is very simple. It is just a matter of distance. It is just a matter of how far you’ve come, and what the allegiance and the experience has been. Understand, we have gathered from all over the multiverse, and some of us have arrived independently, long ago. But that does not mean that we were not aware of each other’s desire to come and to be part of this unfoldment of your planet.

So it is more a distinction of how far, rather than anything else.

SB: And when you say “how far,” do you mean from Earth?

A: Yes, that is correct. And from which dimensions, and from which universes.

SB: Can you tell us just a little bit about the Unified Forces of the Outer Galaxies?  I don’t think anyone apart from people who’ve heard about Grener know about them. It says “the outer galaxies.” Outer galaxies in relationship to what? Where are they from, Ashtar?

A: The outer galaxies are what you think of as the very distant reaches of the universe. So very often what is happening, although there are a great deal of Pleiadian energy on the Unified Forces of the Outer Galaxies as well, but their recruits and families and their forces have been gathered from many planets and systems that you are not aware of, such as Xares or CCC, planets that are not really readily known to the people of Earth.

Who are the Seraphim? – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

 

Seraphim Painting by Nino Ponditerra @ Fine Art America

****

Who are the Seraphim?

The participation of the seraphim in our Ascension, to the extent that several of them have incarnated, is apparently a first.  Archangel Michael said about it:

Steve Beckow:  I’m hearing more and more about the seraphim being involved in our Ascension. But ordinarily, before that, I wouldn’t have thought of the seraphim as being involved.

Archangel Michael: The seraphim have never been involved before.

SB: Hmmm. What has changed?

AAM: The Mother’s desire to have completion of this Ascension process. (1)

What a privilege to have them with us.

Rosy, who paid the costs for InLight Radio for several years, was an incarnated seraph.  She died of cancer and is now participating, in a lustrous golden body if I recall correctly, from the other side.

What do we know about the seraphim? Everything I learned from the early Christian Fathers has been overtaken by the accounts Michael has given me.

For instance, I read long ago that there is a hierarchy among angels – angels, archangels on up to cherubim and seraphim. Wrong. There isn’t.

It’s like a circle and each has a different mission. None is less than another.

Then who are the seraphim? Michael addressed the subject:

Archangel Michael: The seraphim were the first form of the angelics.  Now does that mean that every being started as a seraph?  No.

What it means is that some of those sparks of light, in the expression of what they wish to become, which were beings formed basically of pure light, of love, stayed as close as possible to home, as it were.  That was their choice.

I wish to say something about the seraphim.  Because often we have also spoken about the angels of pink and how they are the defenders of the throne of God.  So understand the defenders of the throne of God, the pinks, and the seraphim are one and the same.  (2)

He’s connected three terms – defenders of the throne, pinks, and seraphim – for me. That is very helpful to me as a student of cross-cultural spirituality. Frequently orders of beings like seraphim are written about under multiple names and it helps to have the connections made … by an archangel.

On another occasion we also discussed who came first – seraph or archangel?

Archangel Michael: Creation … [stages?] a race and the gun goes off. Who crosses that line first?

Well, it is the seraphim. But neck and neck with the archangels! Now we have said this – the seraphim, the archangels, the angels, the elohim, everybody is similar in terms of that beginning.

So you cannot say that the archangels (as much as I would like to!) came first and that we were the foundation of the Mother’s work. Are we part and parcel and pivotal in that work? Of course we are! But no, we did not come first. (4)

But even so, where can we find more detail on the seraphim? Let me cite a passage from Michael where he went into the subject much more deeply.

It’s long but it’ll answer some of our questions. I’ll put extra material in the footnote:

Archangel Michael: The mighty seraphim … are simply beings of bright, wondrous light, fully aware, fully cognizant.

And while all angelic beings face the center, the center of course being the Mother, the Father, the One, but mostly the Mother, the seraphim keep their attention more clearly focused towards the Mother rather than turned out towards the universe, the multiverse, the cosmos, countries, nations, people, beings.

In many ways you can think of them as the defenders of the throne. They are magnificent. And there is nothing that they do not see or perceive.

What you think of as their voice is simply music. It is music of the spheres. It is the sound of the universe. It is the beauty of all. The seraphim, even in my reference point, are phenomenal and very, very sacred and holy.

It is very rare, might I say exceedingly rare, for a seraph to leave the throne, not that there are not enough of them to take care, because there are. But there are seraphim that have come to Earth at this time and assumed human form to work with this cause of transformation of Gaia and of the human collective.

And this is done – in my words, not in theirs – as an act of service, and might I say, sacrifice, because it is such a dramatic adjustment to their field, to their energy, to who they are.

Very often those who are seraphim will have little or no memory of having been on Earth or elsewhere in previous lives, or it is quite limited. They always come in phenomenal concentrated purpose on direction and service to the Mother.

Now, you say, “Well, how do I work with the seraphim?” Sing. Now, if you were to look to what you think of as religious texts, you would, say, pray, but also remember, my friends, that many of the original prayers were sung.

And it is songs of praise, of humility, of asking for help. And it tends to be help of a universal nature, the transformative assistance, although we are not suggesting that a seraph or a group of seraphim will not attend to an individual if they are so moved or directed and guided.

The seraphim that are upon the Earth are those that you can think of as communicators, directors, those who are doing large planetary work. They have a difference in the cast of their light, that if you pay attention you can see that their fields – for those of you who see auric fields – are quite different and distinct. And of course many of them are pink. (5)

Michael is describing seraphim in and out of form.  All are gathered here in service to the Divine Mother working shoulder-to-shoulder with us. Therefore the Mother wasn’t being merely poetic when she said:

“If you come upon a seraph at the gate, do not worry! They are on duty waiting for you.

“They’ll take your hand and they will unfurl your wings, and remind you who you are.

“So who are you? Who is this group, now particularly, this group of — might I call you light-bearers, love-bearers? — who lead the way.  You are ancient souls, coming from every corner of the universe, every realm, every what you think of as dimension, who have said, ‘We can do this.’” (6)

Every corner, realm, and dimension.  Just wait till the blinkers come off.

What will we find? The Divine Mother tells us:

“Many of you have become reassured or confused, … about, oh, there are masters on Earth, there are angels on Earth, there are archangels on Earth. And who am I, and how do I fit in?

My beloveds, you fit in perfectly, because who do you think these masters and angels and archangels and seraphs are? They are you, either a part of you or the totality of you.

The time for underestimating your beloved self is over. And what that means is the time of stepping in the shadows, of thinking that you are under cover is also over. Each of you carries divine might.

How [often] have we spoken of this. It is not your next-door neighbor or the person down the street or the leader in Ottawa or Washington or Geneva that carries might. It is each and every one of you. (7)

When the masks come off, we’ll be in for a great surprise.

So, yes, if you meet a seraph at the gate, not to worry. They’re transmuting energy, going to global trouble spots, taking on collective illnesses, etc.

They might be your neighbors. The Mother says they might include you.

Whenever the commonality of names is established – such as defenders of the throne, pinks, and seraphim – it allows people like me to connect bodies of literature. So it’s a great help to me when the angelics or the Mother do this.

The last time the Mother helped me out by identifying that Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva = rajas, sattwa, and thamas = akar, ukar, makar (Aum) = a subset of the Mother’s Aum vibration.  It’s incredibly important for a student of cross-cultural spirituality to have these connections be made, these dots connected.

For those hopelessly hooked on the seraphim, here is more from Michael on the subject:

Archangel Michael: Let us speak of the mighty seraphim. Now, when my sister [Gabrielle] and I have said that we bow to each other, it is important that you realize that we all bow to each other.

The seraphim are those that surround the throne, the essence, the beingness of One, of Source, of Mother/Father/Son [Shakti/Brahman/Atman] —  however you define that.  And that is depending on your tradition and your religious or philosophical understanding.

These are amazing beings in any reality. Their powers are mighty, and their beingness is mighty. Now, you have need to understand that the Godhead has surrounded themselves with the most beautiful, with the highest energy. And so, these are beings of adoration and these are beings that you will often hear us refer to as those of the pink ray—it is pink-gold, actually. And their purpose is simply to be in attendance, in adoration. They are the singers of hosanna and praise.

Now, why we wish to speak of this—and interrupt me if you wish—the seraphim have never truly spent much time or attention on focusing upon the planet, or certainly upon humankind, for that has not been their purpose, that is not who they are.

But at this time of magnificent unfoldment, at this time of the anchoring of the plan of the blessed Mother/Father/One, they have slightly turned their head[s] and their attention to humanity in order to assist with the fulfillment of this plan. And, unheard of, some of them have even taken on human form. This has never occurred before.

And so, some of you are encountering these mighty angels of pink, and you really do not know what to do with them, because externally they are huge. You can even perceive their wings, their six layers of wings, their fierce independence, their enormous beauty and grace, and their core of independence, their core of steel, because they are very clear about who they are. And they really do not need human direction. They really do not need any direction! (Archangel Michael in “Archangels Michael and Gabrielle on the Angelic Realm: Hour with an Angel Transcript, March 26, 2012,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/ascension-as-of-2012/what-role-are-the-angels-playing/archangels-michael-and-gabrielle-on-the-angelic-realm-hour-with-an-angel-transcript-march-26-2012/.)

The World That Bliss Creates – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Stars Painting – Cosmic Midwife by Tara Rieke-Elledge

****

The World That Bliss Creates

I was imagining myself giving an orientation lecture to new employees and I was trying to explain how and why I could get behind an idea as outrageous as a world that works for everyone. (1)

The lady over there is going to say that the world does not work for her and the gentleman over here will say “Phooey.” The world does not work for them so it doesn’t work for everyone. See?

Yes, this world of our everyday senses does not work for many people in the world, I fully grant.

But there is a state of being on a higher vibratory level of consciousness – that’s the best way I can put it – in which the world works for all.

There’s nothing I can think of to compare that state to in our everyday lives.  Bliss is orgasmic. Higher-dimensional Love is totally satisfying. The senses fall silent in the presence of either of them.

Why? Probably because the being is totally satisfied and nothing more is sought – but more love and bliss. Nothing the senses could detect would compare with either of these higher-dimensional states.

The being is giving its attention to the bliss rather than to sensory impressions. The senses are ignored.

If you were totally satisfied right now, would you wish harm upon another? Undoubtedly you wouldn’t.

Life would be unendingly sweet. The world that bliss creates is a joy to be in, for everyone. That’s our destination. That’s our blueprint.

And we’re helping to translate that state of consciousness, in which the world works, into tangible form – into companies that care, philanthropic endeavors that really do make a difference with their funds, projects that tackle global problems, etc.

I’m in bliss at the moment and again being flooded with all the best memories of my life, exactly as I described a few days ago. (2)

Everything tumbles past me, nothing staying in the face of this welcome state of being. (2) But I do notice how healing it is to remember the good times and until now I’ve been known for remembering the bad times.

This is higher-dimensional. And in this space of bliss, I wouldn’t think of harming anyone. I’d give you the shirt off my back, gladly. And five minutes later someone would have a shirt for me. And we’d all laugh.

The world would work for everyone in this space. No one would want it any other way.

And so it will be in the near future due to the efforts of lightworker leaders in the area of philanthropy. We’re given the first crack at creating such a society.

It’s in the service of this vision – that the world can be made to work for everyone – that I, along with co-partner Archangel Michael, create these companies. By rights I should be cowering in a corner, in a fit of insecurity. But it isn’t like that. I frankly cannot wait to get started.

Wave after Wave of Gratitude – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

***

Wave after Wave of Gratitude

We are Light of the Father’s Light, Love of the Father’s Love, but, as I understand it, there’s a nexus or knot in consciousness that creates an illusory sense of separation between the two of us – in us, not in the Father, of course.

I’m beginning to suspect that that knot in consciousness is composed of our beliefs – primary among them the belief that we and the Father are separate.

When I go to drop the belief that I’m separate, a whole constituency of interests stirs. My cool dude comes up and wants to keep his look.  My wounded child comes up and wants to enjoy the fruits of success a little longer.

On and on the less-than-pure actors go, all different faces of the ego, making a pitch to remain separate.

But I listen to none of them and let go of the belief that I’m separate from the Father. That belief no longer serves me, if it ever did.

Wave after wave of bliss washes over me. Wave after wave of gratitude flows out of me.

Having gotten back my vulnerability recently, (1) I find it easy now to relax into very pleasant states.

Last Few Moments – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Earth Mother by Phresha @ Etsy

****

Last Few Moments

These may be the last few “sane” moments before incessant busy-ness sets in. I find myself drawn again into the stillness.

I find I’m walking more and more slowly these days. If it’s raining outside, I walk in my apartment, Zen kin hin style.  (1) Or in the rain.

When I become aware of each footstep, I find that each is in fact different. I land slightly differently each time I place my foot on the floor.

I hunger to slow time down and just experience my footsteps, as Genele discussed a few days ago. (2)

I know the Now Moment is a portal. I’m just hypnotized by, fixated on time and money, as she pointed out. I need to wake up to my own priorities.

Even when I go for a walk in Stanley Park, I notice I create an agenda around it. One hour out to the Rhododendron Garden. Time for a snack on a park bench, reading the morning mail.

One hour back and down to work again. But I’m as determined to exercise as I am to slow down. All of it is driving, driving.

I saw myself slating everything into a schedule. At no point did I release my grip on time. What’s the point if I don’t let go? How will I be in the Now Moment if I hang on to time?

My walk in the park has to be one footfall after another after another or I miss the tremendous value in it.

To let go of time and just keep slowing down takes me out of step, literally, with others.  I resist doing it and so I never opt to slow down very much. I keep up with the rest.

But now I feel it like a hunger, a thirst. I must slow down. I have to stop excusing myself for wanting it.

Someone once said, “stop finding yourself and get back to work.”  Soon enough we’ll do that, gladly. The work will be building Nova Earth.  I recognize this as an interlude.

But the point is there won’t be time then for slow walking. There won’t be time for slowing time itself down until it becomes no factor in our beingness or choices.

These will probably be our last few moments to experience what lies beyond time before immersing ourselves in schedules for the foreseeable future.

Steve, slow down, if only for a day.

It doesn’t matter what you do or don’t do. Just slow down.

Where do the Ascension Energies Come from? – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Angel Ariel

****

Where do the Ascension Energies Come from?

The Ascension energies we’re receiving come directly from the Divine Mother, as she acknowledges here:

“I continue to send, directly from my core, my love, my clarity and my expansion.”  (1)

But she then sends it to us through mediators. They can be any channel she chooses.  Here she discusses the pathway being used with us:

“Normally, [Light] would come from me to my realms, to the dominions, to the seraphim, to the archangels, etc., to the masters, to your guardians, and then to you. But that is why each of you is shining like a star with many facets. You are being bombarded by all of us. You see, there is no shortage of what I have to share.” (2)

Indeed the flow of Love is eternal and unstinting. The only limitation is how much we can stand.

Dominions, seraphim and archangels are orders of angels. All have asked the Divine Mother to assist with the dispensing of Light to Earth, she explains.

“Just as you all have outer form and have said, ‘Mother, let us assist, let us help,’ so the seraphim, the cherubim, the archangels, the legions of angels, every ascended, enlightened being, your star brothers and sisters — and there is a very strong component, by the way, that the channel also did not talk about, with your star brothers and sisters in this gift – they are all acting as transmitters.” (3)

Sanat Kumara also mentions this pathway as being used for the large waves of Ascension energy:

“Now, throughout the universe, we work with what you think of as creative chaos, to call in all the energy at our disposal. And this is what we have done, directly from the Mother/Father One, to the archangels, to the seraphim, to the angelic realm, to your star brothers and sisters, the entire Company of Heaven.

“Everybody has been sending the higher vibrations, the higher frequencies to the planet and to each and every one of you.” (4)

In ordinary times of individual enlightenment (and probably ascension), the Mother uses the angels to pass Light to us. Here’s Michael confirming it:

Steve Beckow: We often say that we “get” enlightened, and we sometimes say that God graces us with enlightenment. But is it not the case that angels actually mediate enlightenment; in other words, bring enlightenment to us?

Archangel Michael: They assist in your enlightenment process, yes. That is one of the gifts to them and to you. (5)

Here he explains that, even when the energy comes directly from the Mother, the angels play a mediating role.

“There is a new energy – can we call it a tertiary wave, though it is more than that – that comes to the planet directly from the heart of the Mother. And yes, we are her delivery agents.” (6)

Here’s Archangel Michael acknowledging that he will enlighten humanity when peace is declared on Earth.

Archangel Michael: When all is done, when peace within you exhibits on the outside, which is not just no war but truly harmonious relationships and ways of being and behavior, then I will invite you to come and listen to our music. More importantly you will hear our music and you will see me painting the sky.

Steve Beckow: That means something, Lord, a little bit more than just the words might seem to indicate, does it not? If I were to hear your music that would transport me to another realm, would it not?

AAM: That is correct. (7)

Indeed it means a stage of enlightenment. What stage? Well, that depends on us.

The angels don’t pass on to us any more Light that our bodies can withstand or than our soul contracts permit. Michael tells us:

“For my full presence to suddenly apparit [appear] would probably cause you to drop dead.” (8)

We don’t want that. On another occasion he said that if he whispered my spiritual name in my ear, I’d leave the body. (9)

I’ve already shared how seventh-chakra and seventh-dimensional experiences in my case were “truncated” or “toned down” so that I wouldn’t fly off and be unwilling to write for the blog. (10)

The archangels have the measures and are guiding us forward consistent with our bodies’ tolerance and our soul contract’s limits.

This then is the special route by which Ascension energies, in particular, reach us and the general route by which enlightenment, considered broadly, reaches us.

Final Exam, Freshman Year – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Shelter of The Sacred by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

***

Final Exam, Freshman Year

I think I’m through my freshman year at Ascension University.

What was on the final exam?

Let me remember….

“What is most important to human beings?” Answer: The way they feel.

“What is most important for humans to know?” That they choose (and can alter) the way they feel.

“What is most often missing in the human makeup?” Divine love for self.

“What has most need of being eliminated?” Anger.

“What is it most necessary to remind humans of?” That they came here for a reason.

“What discovery will rock the human race?” That what they’re looking for, singly and collectively, can be found in the heart whose door (hridayam) is open.

I got great marks … but no summer off!!!! At least not yet.

Meanwhile, bliss arrives.

There is a “place” of perpetual bliss, perpetual love, perpetual summer vacation. It’s called the Fifth Dimension.

The only thing, I assert, that stands between us and the perpetual experience of bliss in the Fifth Dimension is our vasanas (core issues) and the belief systems that arise out of them.

Spirit Knows Us – Narendra Mishra

****

Spirit Knows Us

A couple of days ago, for the second time in my life, I came face to face with the notion that Spirit knows me, intimately.

I have no doubt that Spirit knows each and every one of us. Yet it still came as a pleasant surprise when it happened as blatant as it did.

A client came to see me on a referral from a dear friend, Lynda. It was her birthday and she had a very strong urge to get a reading done. She had never had one before.

When we met for the first time, we embraced as if we were old friends. There was an instant connection. This, I’m sure, many of you would have experienced at some time in your life. No real surprise there.

The surprise came when we started talking in our introductory remarks to each other. Apparently, in June of last year she was awakened from a very vivid dream where an African man was introducing her to an Indian man. She awoke just when the Indian man took her hand and led her to a building.

When she saw my picture on this blog she remembered the dream. The Indian man was me.

Well, needless to say, I was flattered. I felt honoured to be known by Spirit. Of course, on one level I knew already that we’re all known to Spirit. But to actually experience it as dramatically as this was quite another thing.

Prior to this, the first case happened two, maybe three years ago. A client came to see me. She was a short, rather stout African woman in her fifties, who walked with an assurance that came from working as a security guard for many years.

“I want to know what this old Indian man wants with me,” she said, looking me straight in the eye.

My thought was that this was probably some kind of love affair. Boy, was I wrong. As she spoke she became very fidgety and uncomfortable. Her voice started breaking and it seemed she was fighting something.

Thankfully, I was already a reader of the Golden Age of Gaia and other awakening websites, so I knew channeling when I saw it. I was quite intrigued though. This was the first I was witnessing it. This was a live manifestation of Spirit.

I asked her to allow him to come through – the old Indian man whom she referred to. When he did, her transformation was dramatic.  Her voice changed to that of an old man, speaking in broken English dialect. Her demeanor changed; her very personality became reminiscent of that of an old man.

I was so fascinated that I forgot to challenge him to ascertain if he was of the Light. But I had an opportunity a couple of weeks later when he came though her daughter. He was of the Light.

After telling me quite a number of very, very personal details about myself, he said he had directed her to me. Apparently she needed guidance and I was chosen by Spirit to guide her.

That experience had me on a high for a few days. I was at once elated and humbled that Spirit knew me.

Now, this experience repeated itself yesterday. Albeit less dramatically. Still, the wonder to really know that Spirit knows you didn’t abate with time. I share this now with you, my dear friends, that you may know also in your hearts that Spirit knows you. Intimately.​

The Company of Heaven has Our Back – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

The Company of Heaven has Our Back

I wanted to review the discussions of how the Company of Heaven are protecting lightworkers who agree to act as financial, Earth or other stewards.

The CoH has repeatedly assured lightworkers that we are “mightily protected.”  (1)  Here’s the Divine Mother herself giving us that assurance in 2016:

“Having encouraged you to go forth, having provided the mechanisms for that to occur, do you really think in our divinity, in our family, that we are going to arrange for a rogue bandit to harm you? You are mightily protected!” (2)

Here’s Michael repeating the reassurance:

“Are the lightworkers who are diligent and see themselves in a stewardship role greatly protected? The answer is, ‘yes.’” (3)

On another occasion he said: “You have not incarnated to be removed, either by inflicted or imagined or created [forces]. [You’re not] in physicality [for] anything less than perfection.” (4)

That’s the purpose of Ascension, right? That we should emerge in perfected bodies – light bodies? Thus, we lightworkers are here for nothing less than perfection.

Therefore he can assure us: “It is not our intention or our plan to allow you to be cannon fodder for the cause because that would defeat the purpose.” (5)

The purpose is for us to walk forth into the sunshine, for a new Garden of Eden to arise on a peaceful Earth. Peace won’t have a great deal of meaning if all of us are lying dead on a battlefield.

That isn’t the extent of the peace that Michael wants and is forecasting for us. But that’s another story.

In this article, let’s look more closely at these words that the Mother used – “mightily protected.”  What do they mean, exactly?

Michael gives us a head’s up that they mean something special. In 2013, he said: “You are being mightily – and I use that word very specifically – mightily protected.” (6) What do the words mean that he uses very specifically?

In the language used by the CoH, “mighty ones” refers to the archangels.  Here Michael explains: “They call the archangels, ‘the mighty ones.’ And we are honored by that title.” (7)

Planetary Logos Sanat Kumara is one who uses the term:  “The protection is already in force. The mighty ones, the Archangelics, have surrounded you and Gaia.” (8)

So the archangels are the ones heading up our protection team. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Many of us – myself included, for years – could not really get what that meant. I’m sure Michael is talking about me here:

“This is something that many human beings do not understand and that you will share and write about over time and in the near future.

“When we declare that, whether it is a guardian angel or a guide (because they are interchangeable), an Archangel, a Seraphim, the Mother herself but particularly when I say, when we say or a guardian angel says that they are protecting you, what does this really mean?

“It means that there is no need for fear, that this very old core issue/false grid can truly be thrown into the trash heap or the recycle bin to be given back to the Light.

“Few people really believe this and it is curious because there is seldom a situation in which we do not begin and end by saying this.” (9)

I could burst out laughing if I really got it. I’d be free from worry and fear.

The fact that we don’t really get or believe it he calls a “wobbly leg” in our sacred partnership with the celestials.

“It is a basic wobbly leg in human/divine relationships because the relationship is starting with this aspect [fear], based on old human experiences, … on this aspect of ‘I don’t really trust you so you better prove yourself and show me’ rather than proceeding not only in the love but in the mantle of protection that is around you always.

“So I am giving you this as food for thought, not so much even for your sacred self but as food for thought for how you discuss things with those who are our faithful readers.

“And the desire for many, and when I say many I mean billions, of Gaians to simply release this hesitancy to trust because it is also, of course, as you well know, a hesitancy to trust oneself, to trust that in fact what you feel about yourself is trustworthy.” (10)

No, it was very much food for thought for me. I simmer in worry and fear all day long. And Suzi and I are a “terminal” for your concerns, as well.

To think that I can lay my worries and fears down explodes my entire view of life.

This is something that I need to get down to my bones and cells.  We can trust in the archangelic presence.  We can proceed without fear.

Well, I am. I won’t be installing this protective system and living in that gated compound afterwards. I’m carrying on for as long as I can as I do now.

My life has always been an experiment. The experiment now is to prove the archangels right, that they are protecting us and that a few rogues and villains are not going to get the best of them.

I will not live in fear after the Reval. Those who are with us are far stronger than those who are against us.

The Divine Plan for Earth and its inhabitants is to emerge triumphant this Ascension, not like our last attempts in Atlantis and Lemuria. Peace will reign, Michael says, with no residue remaining:

“Our code word is victory and it is not victory over anything; it is victory with.

“It is the bringing of peace on Earth. That is the prelude [to everything else]; that is the promise.

“It is the promise that has been made throughout the universe, but it is also the promise that has been made to the Universal Mother. And that peace will prevail.” (11)

This next period of time – in which lightworkers are given the means to rebuild the structures and institutions of the planet – is our time and our turn to step out boldly in many new directions.  The first new direction that must come to support the rest is the achievement of world peace.

And we’ll do it.

The next is the achievement of individual, inner peace.  Rock-solid, stable, secure.

Take comfort in knowing that the Company of Heaven has us in their hands and that the major contours of the future are already present, in place, alive in the higher dimensions.

Steve Beckow: Surely the cabal is looking at these people with a lot of money and licking its chops, right?

Archangel Michael: You are hidden in many ways. … I am pretty good at protection. I have a few souls that help me out now and then. … Do you think a few rogues are going to beat me at my own game? …

Not to worry, dear heart. You are mightily protected.  (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, July 22, 2016.)

Archangel Michael: You will put the normal security precautions in place that any institution will provide. But, dear heart, I would suggest that you are mightily protected.  (Ibid., Nov. 19, 2013.)

Archangel Michael: It is not so much, my friend, that you are being targeted. That does not mean that you are not on the radar. Of course you are. And as you step forward to create peace on Earth, it will be even more so.

But you are also mightily protected, and you have created and built your energy field. They cannot and will not be permitted to harm you. (Ibid., Feb. 18, 2011.)

An Introduction to Ascension – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Art by Luisa Villavicencio

An Introduction to Ascension

http://awakeningspark.com/blog/an-introduction-to-ascension

Narendra Misra asked me to write an introduction to Ascension for Hindus. I’m happy to oblige.

If we turn to The Holy Science by Sri Yukteswar Giri, Paramahansa Yogananda’s guru, we find him telling us what’s happening at this moment.

But before he takes up that discussion he has a wonderful, contextualizing comment to make, one that describes the work of my own blog, the Golden Age of Gaia (and probably Narendra’s as well):

“The purpose of this book is to show as clearly as possible that there is an essential unity in all religions; that there is no difference in the truths inculcated by the various faiths; that there is but one method by which the world, external and internal, has evolved; and that there is but one Goal admitted by all scriptures.” (1)

If we agree with Sri Yukteswar, then we agree that what he talks about are real phenomena – not just real to him but real in the universe – that we of other faiths may have different names for them but we’re talking about the same thing, and that all views and all religions carry their sincere practitioners closer and closer to the “one Goal” of all, the transcendent and unknowable God.

I call what Sri Yukteswar is pointing at “cross-cultural spirituality.” (2) Hindus call it Sanathana Dharma; others, theosophy, the ageless wisdom, and the perennial philosophy.

What I want to focus on is his teachings on the various yugas or ages and what’s called the precession of the equinoxes. (3)

That term refers to a circuit the Sun makes that covers some 24,000 years in extent and is known to people of many different persuasions.

As a Vedic astrologer, like Sri Yukteswar Giri, Narendra could tell you much more about it than I can.

The period of time we’re in right now falls at the height of the circuit, when, as Sri Yukteswar tells us, “the mental virtue becomes so much developed that man can easily comprehend all, even the mysteries of the spirit.” (4)

The gradual process others currently call “Ascension” is the transition from the previous age of darkness (Kali Yuga, Dark Age, Iron Age) to this age of Light (Sat Yuga, Golden Age, Age of Aquarius, New Age).

It has some peaks which mostly correspond to the enlightenment events that most Hindus know well, (5) as the kundalini courses up through the spine.

Then the chakra system is left behind and the heart permanently and fully opens in what Sri Ramana Maharshi calls “Sahaja Samadhi.”  (6) “Sahaja” means natural: This is our natural state.

And it’s also the culminating event of our Ascension. Our heart having permanently opened is our entree into higher dimensionality.

We commonly talk about Ascension as a consciousness shift. That’s what lies at the heart of it. But it’s also more.

It’s an experiment as well in taking the physical human body with us, something that hasn’t been tried before in other Ascensions. (3)

And it’s an experiment in a mass Ascension. On Earth until we reached this place in our solar circuit, Ascensions have been individual matters.

But now, we’re receiving assistance from higher-dimensional civilizations.

Consequently, the vibration has been raised sufficiently over the entire Earth for all people who could describe themselves as “decent” to expand their consciousness gradually and gracefully into the Fifth or higher dimension of life; i.e., to ascend.

It’s also more than a simple consciousness shift in the sense that we lightworkers and our friends from other civilizations (galactics, our star family) will be building Nova Earth.

In a flow of abundance that’s expected, we’ll have the chance to end homelessness, hunger, poverty, disease, and all other sources of misery on Earth.

Our star brothers and sisters are the folks who’ve watched over us since the beginning of the human experiment on Planet Earth, our forebears and ancestors from the Pleiades, Sirius, Arcturus, Andromeda, etc.

Right now they’re pouring their higher-dimensional, loving energies into us to assist us to ascend. They’ll join us later for a celebration that’s been planned for eons.

They look like us, can speak our languages, and are keenly aware of and committed to us.

Their arrival among us is referred to as “Disclosure.” They too are part of the Divine Plan for our Ascension, as will be discussed more in the future.

These elements of the Divine Plan and tasks we’ve agreed to make what is transpiring at the moment more than simply a consciousness shift.

I predict that someone right now is asking themselves what they need to do to ascend.

If you’ve reached this level of rising vibration and feel for the most part happy with things, you have nothing to worry about. The rising energies will do the rest in their appointed time. This is not an exclusive process; it’s very, very inclusive. When we “go One,” we go all.

This is an introduction to what’s happening on Planet Earth during this consciousness shift, known to Hindus as entry into the Sat Yuga or Golden Age and to others as Ascension.

Thank you to Narendra for inviting me to comment. And I hope he continues and expands the discussion.

For much more on these subjects, go to the “Library” on the Golden Age of Gaiahttp://goldenageofgaia.com/library/.

(5) Spiritual awakening (4th-chakra); Savikalpa Samadhi or cosmic consciousness (6th-chakra); Kevalya Nirvikalpa Samadhi or Brahmajnana (7th-chakra). This completes the chakra circuit but is still only “halfway up the mountain.”

Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi is a full and permanent heart opening, beyond the 3rd/4th-dimensional chakra system. I interviewed the Divine Mother once on An Hour with an Angel and she confirmed that Sahaja was the culmination of Ascension:

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 [associated] with 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.

So freed from the Third Dimension, which is what a full and permanent heart opening – i.e., Sahaja Samadhi – does. This is the end-point of our Ascension process. We continued:

SB: It’s wonderful to have that confirmed. Thank you very much, Mother.

DM: It is wonderful for us as well, you know!

SB: Is it? How so, Mother?

DM: As we move beyond what you think of in your realm as emotion, that does not mean that the pervasive love and joy is not felt as we participate, witness, move and assist and beckon you forward. …

Now, you understand that most people have no conception of what this [discussion] really means.  And, yes, you will do a good job of explaining.

SB: Well, you know that I have a website [From Darkness to Light] that discusses Sahaja Samadhi at length. And that’s from Sri Ramana Maharshi, more or less.  If I take that material and present it to readers, would that be adequate?

DM: That will help. (“The Divine Mother: Come to Me as I Come to You – Part 1/2,” Oct. 17, 2012, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012/10/the-divine-mother-come-to-me-as-i-come-to-you-part-12/.)

I’ve since written on the subject here:  http://goldenageofgaia.com/ascension-to-the-fifth/#4.

(6) Usually one ascends upon exiting the body at “death,” as with Jesus and the Buddha (who doubtless had already ascended in other lifetimes).

(7) Sri Ramana describes how in each stage of enlightenment, the heart opens for a while and then closes again.

“[The] Heart is the seat of Jnanam [wisdom] as well as of the granthi (knot of ignorance). It is represented in the physical body by a hole smaller than the smallest pin-point, which is always shut [the hridayam].

“When the mind drops down in Kevalya Nirvikalpa [samadhi or Brahmajnana], it opens but shuts again after it. When Sahaja [Nirvikalpa Samadhi] is attained it opens for good.” (Ramana Maharshi in Cohen, S.S., Guru Ramana. Memories and Notes. 6th edition. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanasramam, 1993, 96.)

Only with Sahaja does the heart open and remain open permanently. That is the moment of full Ascension, which happens a few subplanes inside the Fifth Dimension.

This is mukti, moksha, or liberation from birth and death. There is no death in the Fifth and higher dimensions.

On 1, You’ll Wake Up – Steve Beckow @ Golen Age of Gaia

The Angel And The Dove by Lynn Bywaters @ Fine Art America

On 1, You’ll Wake Up

Musing over a minor incident in which I felt taken advantage of, I noticed that I assumed a gruff and defensive posture.

I reminded myself that it was my choice to be this way. What was I getting from it?

Back came the answer: I will never allow myself to be as vulnerable again as I was, as a  child, with my Father. (1)

Bingo.

That sentence lies at the very base of my gruffness, my defensivness, my offensiveness, everything. Wow.

That’s the decision I made at age seven. That’s the point at which the twig was bent and the tree inclined.

I’m now just allowing that realization to ripple through my body.

Having gotten the knot in consciousness at the center of the vasana, I feel the grip of the vasana fall away.

I find myself back at the place of rechoosing and I now choose to be vulnerable again.

I want to shout to very cell of my body: The emergency is over, everyone. The all-clear has been sounded. It’s safe to come out of our hidey-holes.

It’s OK to be vulnerable again; in fact, it’s the order of the day. A new world has arrived, a world of peace.

Congratulations on surviving the war. You fought well as long as fighting was needed.

Now peace has been declared. The “enemy” is gone.

This is our part of the postwar reconstruction work: To clear ourselves of the residue of living in a world at emotional war.

We need to clear the debris that is damming up the river of love. We need to cut the knots in consciousness we’ve tied ourselves in trying to emotionally survive.

In our minds, we existed in a world where everyone seemed, at some basic level, to be at emotional war with each other – and with themselves.  We were egos trying to survive in a dense and manipulated environment.

All that can be past now if we only commit to ourselves to wake up. The outer reality is changing. It’s only our consciousnesses that remain unnecessarily dense, as if in sleep.

Matthew Ward suggested some time ago:

“Although Earth and all of her residents are in fourth density location-wise, the majority of the populace still is within third density awareness-wise.” (2)

This is what basic-level waking up looks like for me: We stop building a reaction-based world.

We stop creating our lives as horror stories because we’re creating them in reaction to a vasana-born fear. A fear of strangers, foreigners, aliens. A fear of insects, wild animals, other life forms. We have so many fears.

A basic-level waking up would see us stop guiding our lives by the maxim “Excuse, justify and deny all my core issues.” The world we created by living like that was filled with drama and bad endings.

Bad endings is not where the future is going. As my vision in 1987 showed me, it all works out in the final reel. (3) And this is the final reel for The Birth of Fifth Dimensionality.

I’m going to count backwards from 10 to 1. And, on 1, you’ll wake up, not remembering very much of emotional warfare, but everything of world peace.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2….

Footnotes

(1) The mind is an obedient servant. Ask it what the originating incident for a vasana is and it obediently sends up a picture, a phrase, or some other identifier of it. But you have to take the very first picture or phrase that comes up. And it often comes up fast, racing across the screen of our awareness.

Hold That Pose – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Reading A Book by Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merprès – via Bas van Houwelingen

 Hold That Pose

Marcel Marceau and Maurice Chevalier Credit: The Guardian

I sometimes seem very much out of step with many people around me.

They appear to want to party and celebrate the exit of “Junuary” and the arrival of “summer.” For them holidays are here.

I can’t honestly say it’s that way for me. I want to work.  For me work is not work, any more than painting was for Picasso or sculpture for Michaelangelo.  I’d do what I do even on holidays. In my sleep.

(This wholehearted desire to do something is a sign that that something is a part of our mission.)

The subject matter – the observable evolution of humanity, seen first within myself and then within others – endlessly fascinates me.

I haven’t been here often, apparently, and sometimes I feel like a Gaian anthropologist … or maybe a humanologist.  The human branch on Earth, that is, rather than Sirius, the Pleiades, etc.

I can’t get enough of reading about patterns in Gaian human behavior. Sometimes on the street I want to say, “Why do you do that?” or “Why are you saying one thing and looking like you want another? Why is it necessary to hide?”

In my doctoral year in Sociology, my thesis adviser upbraided me with “I think you read only the prefaces of books.” He was right. I wanted only the theory, not the application.

I hungrily read the prefaces of books in sociology, psychology, anthropology, proxemics, kinesics, folkloristics, every field including and adjacent to sociology in the Library. I couldn’t get enough of it. (Of course I just thought what I was doing was normal. Turned out it wasn’t.)

In one of my lives, I helped turn the printing press into a technology.  In another, two millennia ago, I wrote a book that’s still popular today. I’ve always been in love with words and what can be done with them. As long as I’m working with words, I’m happy – indexing, categorizing, analyzing, explaining.

But add to a love of ordinary wordsmithing – which I find delightful and inspirational unto itself – the spiritual guidance that comes through, accompanied by bliss. Now you have an addictive experience.  Wisdom plus bliss. Who would say no?

Who could resist it? And everything that comes from guidance makes more sense than what comes from me, I have to report.

When Michael dictated the Declaration of Human Freedom through me, from time to time I’d say, “No” and change a word. Later when I came back and edited it, alarm bells went off wherever I’d put a word in and I ended up changing them all back to the original.

I assure you, given the abundance of bliss I feel when I write, the laborer is well paid for his hire.

I love doing this. Hold that pose.

Archangel Michael: Come from the Place of Heart Consciousness – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Sacred Union by Meganne Forbes

Archangel Michael: Come from the Place of Heart Consciousness

Archangel Michael offered his sometimes playful, always helpful comments on how the celestials work with us, what heart communication is, and other aspects of the new paradigm of sacred partnership.

From 2015, I came across them in the course of research.  It’s clear he wanted them posted so I offer them here.

Archangel Michael: Let us play today.

There are many things that we bring forth. Sometimes it is slightly hidden. Sometimes is a bit of a puzzle. Sometimes it is not immediately clear and other times it is crystal clear and it is 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 asked him to bless my then partnership and he said the horse had 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 ask, 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!  (Laughs) 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. (AAM, Sept. 30, 2015.)

Reality Sneaking Up on Us – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

****

Reality Sneaking Up on Us

If we lightworkers are self-tasked with building Nova Earth, what will we do after the Reval?

I plan to take a month off and go on a long and hopefully restful trip.

Michael says to let writing be the last thing that falls off the table so I’ll continue to write during that time.

Then it’s hire one strategic person after another. After the personal assistant, the President of the Michaelangelo Fund. Then the Publisher of the Golden Age of Gaia. Then the President of the Lightworkers Fund (dedicated to providing for lightworkers in need).

Next the President of Hope Chest International (dedicated to providing universal basic incomes). And finally the President of Ancillary Services (personnel, accounting, training, legal services, IT, etc.), not in that order. Ancillary Services would have equal hiring priority with the Michaelangelo Fund.

Almost all employees will be women. I’d like women to have a chance to work with large sums of money. Also to work in every position in the company – cross-training, flattening hierarchy, etc.  To make all the decisions except those reserved for me, like the vision.

What is that vision? It’s a world that works for everyone. (1) I know it can be done because I’ve visited a state of higher-dimensional consciousness of love and bliss, through most of 2015.

In that state the world would naturally work for everyone so I know a working world can be achieved.  I’m not in that state now. But I do remember it and I do know where we’re headed.

It’s a paradox. Ordinarily the world would never work for everyone, ever. BUT in the Fifth Dimension it does.

To create a world that works is the reason for creating the Michaelangelo group of companies – to show that the world can work, to demonstrate what the principles are of a world that works.

Until we get there, with Ascension, we’re doing everything we can to welcome the space and prepare for it. We’re living as if the world could work for everyone. That calls it into creation and leaves an inheritance in the collective consciousness.

That’s the vision and the plan.

Expressing the principles of a world that works is not hard: They are love, bliss, peace, and joy. But so few of us have experienced these as higher-dimensional states that it becomes difficult to communicate about them. I could if I left the group’s focus or knowledge base, but that would have little relevance to or impact on most people.

Continuing with the organizational start-up, I’m going to retain the services of two of my mentors from the Immigration and Refugee Board, to teach courses in credibility analysis and decision-making.  Everybody who wants can receive the training.

Then I’ll probably follow a cycle with each organization in turn – planning, preparing, creating, hiring, training, integrating, familiarizing, building momentum. Great benefits plan and lots of job creation in the process.

Only one organization will be started simultaneously or I’d go nuts. Or not. Maybe I’ll get bigger.  I seem to have an elasticity that increases every day.

I’m having to get bigger in every way. And it surprises me that there always turns out to be space for me to get bigger into, so to speak. And there always seem to be more “bigger” to get.

Don’t overlook the mounting evidence that the Third Dimension is actually gone, despite what we may believe. Our beliefs determine what we see.

It may turn out that the reason things are as they appear to us is that we believe they are that way. And can be no other way. And so the universe obliges.

You know that I’ve confronted several feelings like worry, shame, and fear which, when turned and faced into, disappeared. That left me sobered. Was the dimension I lived in purely a figment of my imagination? More and more it seems that way.

But it’s the kind of thing you want to sneak up on gradually. For this world to suddenly disappear before our very eyes might leave many badly disoriented.

This gradually-dawning awareness to the fragility of what I assumed to be stable and real (worry, shame, and fear) suggests to me that we may be able to ease ourselves into the Fifth Dimension.  Like easing into a warm bath. It’s almost sneaking up on us.

Money Can’t Buy Abundance – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

***

Money Can’t Buy Abundance

For the second time in my life, I’m in a particular space.

It’s deliciously blissful. There’s tremendous release in it, a relief from anxiety.

Every good memory I have comes flooding back in – Miami at 8 years old, Montreal at 10, Disneyland at 14, all the scenes come flashing across the screen.

I call this space “Abundance.”

The last time I found myself in it, I invoked the Law of Give and Receive and asked to receive “abundance.” But I forgot to say “physical abundance” and instead found myself in the space of abundance. Archangel Michael referred to the experience in my next reading:

“When I have said ‘spiritual currency,’ you’ve had a glimpse of this in the knowing of mastery and abundance and so you know it isn’t about money. It is about spiritual currency. And I say to you, ‘congratulations.’” (1)

No, it isn’t about money, as he says. It has nothing necessarily to do with it. Money could not buy an experience of the space called abundance.

But it is about this blissful space. It carries one away, wafts one aloft, so to speak. One wants for nothing.

It settles all scores and dismisses all debts from one’s consciousness.

But as with so many other spaces, I cannot come up with a definite statement about anything essential to the space of abundance itself. I can only describe its effects.  It’s the same with any other divine quality or state that I’m aware of: I can only describe their effects.

If one had a lot of money and yet didn’t feel this way, I wouldn’t describe that person as being in the space of abundance; just having a lot of money. Money can’t buy abundance.

This space is the same higher-dimensional space that we sometimes call love, sometimes bliss, sometimes peace. We keep ending up at the same destination no matter what direction we take – the divine state most fundamentally known as Love.

Remember that Love is not – and cannot be – contained in the word “Love.” We use the one word “Love” to cover many things, things at different  degrees, etc. While we’re struggling to comprehend Love, it flows outside and inside us oblivious to our difficulties in comprehending it.

In the end, Love cannot be comprehended; it has to be experienced and realized to be known.

Love in limitless abundance? That would be Ascension, Heaven, Nirvana.

If We’re All Angels, Then Why Aren’t We Enlightened? – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

****

If We’re All Angels, Then Why Aren’t We Enlightened?

The Divine Mother told us in 2014:

“You are angels in form, and you have been birthed even prior to that as the essence of One. So you return to that while keeping your magnificent form.”(1)

We might ask: If we’re angels, then why aren’t we enlightened?

Surely we should be forging ahead. If we’re wayshowers, then why aren’t we showing the way to Ascension?

My own case illustrates why, so let me cite the reasons Archangel Michael has given me. I think the same applies to many, if not most, lightworkers.

First of all, if we’re all angels, why didn’t we come to Earth with all our powers intact? Michael tells us why.

“If you came with full capacity – and meaning, yes, the vision, the hearing, the knowing, the full memory, the access, all of the above – and you were to communicate to the humans, to the collective, there would be a sense of separation.

“That is why you, as so many, have been kept under cover. … When you turn to your brothers and sisters, it is as one [with them].” (2)

According to him, if we ascended, we also wouldn’t stay.

Archangel Michael: If you were to complete your full ascension, many of you would not bother to stay and finish the creation of Nova Earth.

Steve: So you really have to meter it out to us, so to speak, so as not to send us flying off into some other pursuit?

AAM: That is correct. (3)

Many of us have been teachers and gurus in other lifetimes, but in this lifetime we’re building Nova Earth. He adds:

“You did not come to live as a guru in a western or eastern manner.

“If you were completely involved in your full awakening, you in very great likelihood would not be forming a platform with me.  You would be off somewhere in an ashram meditating.” (4)

Several decades of my life were spent reading about spiritual aspirants and gurus in ashrams meditating so what he says is quite likely true. But this lifetime is not about that.

“If you fully enter into the bliss, into the One, you will not be interested in returning and serving. It will be a different experience, and it is not the experience that you have selected and chosen for yourself at this time.” (5)

In my case, if I were to speed ahead, I might not be able to relate any longer as a writer to where people are. He explained:

“Because you are the communicator, it is important not only to share the truth of your being, of our being, but also to be able to clearly relate to people where they are.” (6)

“It is important that you speak and communicate in language that people understand, embrace, and can get behind.” (7)

Instead of forging ahead, he wants us all to remain grounded and enjoy the human experience. The monk in me is not attracted to wine, sex, and song, I joked with him:

Steve: OK. Boy. Eat, drink and be merry!

Archangel Michael: It is difficult, no?

Steve: Yes, it is difficult.  (8)

“Ground yourself,” he recommended.  “Be human and love the experience of being in form.”  (9)

In case we’re feeling that we’ll be left out, he assures us: “Yes, dear friend, the vision will come. It will absolutely come.” (10)

So our assignment is to go up gradually with everyone else and serve the human community as we do so. This is what we agreed to eons ago and it won’t eliminate us from fully enjoying the end result.

Born to Lead – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

***

Born to Lead

Michael once said to me: “You are reticent to be the clarion call. … Let it go.” (1)

Yes, I am reticent.

But you know, a clarion call is needed.

I feel the need to raise a subject that I know is going to be important later on and is better raised now.

I feel the need to say it before we all vamoose the ranch for a rest after the Reval.

I regard this as a true statement: If you call yourself a lightworker, it follows like night and day that you’re also intended to be a leader.

I predict that leadership will be our business as long as we’re lightworkers because only lightworkers know the whole story.

Only lightworkers know where we’re headed and for what reason. Only they know who’s leading the show (the Divine Mother) and what role we all play in her unfolding drama.

Only lightworkers know the purpose of life and the larger significance of this Ascension. Or that there is an Ascension at all.

Only lightworkers have heard the Divine Mother ask them – and have responded:

“Build what is divinely beautiful. I give you my divine authority to do so. I will guide you. I will help you. But I entrust this to you as well. …

“We are helping you. That gateway is open and you are being flooded and you are being assisted and you will be assisted every step of the way.” (2)

Archangel Michael reminded us that, if lightworkers did not step forward, there would be a vacuum.

“If no [lightworker] steps forward into [leadership] then there is a massive vacuum because many of the billions upon your planet have not yet learned, adapted and integrated the new tools – the fullness of this new energy.

“So [when non-lightworkers] are assigned … or try to step up … to create and to take the leadership role, they do not have the training and insight to do it in a way that is achievable. … So there is a lack, a vacuum of leadership.

“Now, who, upon this wondrous planet, has been hiding in the shadows or edging out, or in the limelight and is ready? … Who has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities? Who is it that is prepared to do this? Well, it is the lightworkers.” (3)

This is the clarion call. This is our invitation. Either lead or leave an unbridgeable gap.

If lightworkers don’t lead, I’m not sure if Nova Earth would get built. Because, if we don’t lead, then we’d all level our consciousness down to whomever is leading. And if that happened, our action would probably lack determination. It’d probably lack stability and cohesiveness. We’d probably wobble and be lethargic as a society.

Look at our leaders at the moment – the nominal leader of the G7 quits the group (June 11, 2018).  Excuse me? Did he just shoot himself in the foot? The late-night talk show hosts are being handed their material on a silver platter.

Reality trumps fiction. Are these folks to be our role models? Is it their consciousness we’re going to level down to?

Why? Only because lightworkers have not filled the gap in leadership.

Lightworkers know what’s so and have the persistence and the vision to build Nova Earth.

As I understand it, we’re destined to just keep expanding as a family.  Michael once said that the circle of lightworkers would grow to take in the whole world some day.

Archangel Michael: Does the conversation expand organically and naturally? Does the energy go out to the entire planet, those who want to hear and those who don’t want to hear? Yes, it does. But it begins with the lightworker community. That is what we have need of.

Steve: And I suppose then more and more people join the lightworker community?

AAM: Exactly, until it is one family and one path. (4)

We’re asked to lead not because we’re somehow a chosen people. We’re not, except in the sense that we chose ourselves, but more because we know the Divine Plan and our roles in it.

We’re organizing ourselves. We’re preparing ourselves. We’re ready. When we begin, don’t be shy. We’re going to have to lead.

Geographical Diffusion – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Spiritual Awakening Painting by Teressa Nichole @ Fine Art America

****

Geographical Diffusion

How do various inventions arise on different continents, often around the same time?

The matter – called geographical diffusion – is not discussed widely in the messages of our sources but we can find some references to it.

It isn’t enough perhaps to safely ground a theory, but it’s enough to allow us to speculate.

Let’s start with how higher-dimensional beings work with the individual and then work up to the group.

We know that our guides and the archangels inspire us as individuals.  Let  me use my own circle of guidance as an example of what yours may look like.

In my first reading through Linda in Dec. 2010, my twin flame, Annastara, came forward and introduced my guides:

“Dear heart, you have asked who your guides are. They are so willing, and able to declare themselves.” (1)

Annastara introduces herself and the three other guides and then adds:

“Now that does not mean that we are not joined by others from time to time and continually, for there are many that not only seek to help but love to observe and love to participate.

“Not everything you do is just you single-handedly and you have the good sense to know this, which honors us, that you allow us to help.” (2)

Shortly after (Jan. 2011), Archangel Michael introduced himself and added himself to the circle:

“I am with you. … Anastara is with you. We are all with you. You do not travel alone.” (3)

It isn’t intended that we “travel alone,” he said:

“[The Mother] did not beckon or tap you on the shoulder and ask you to step out of line so you could do so alone. So you are flanked, my beloved friend, by me, by your star brethren, and by many. So the guidance is there.” (4)

On another occasion, he acknowledged inspiring and overlighting, something he does with many people:

“I have [inspired] and will inspire and overlight you when the time is right for … messages to be conveyed.” (5)

Later he reported:

“You are heeding the guidance. You are listening and reciprocating.” (6)

He described how our guides work with us, advising:

“Do not doubt what you are feeling moved to do. For we are not only moving; we are encouraging; we are pushing and pulling at times.” (7)

Let’s now move up from individual inspiration one step to social mission for the Mother.

Archangel Michael suggested to Kathleen that the galactics were watching lightworkers and will actually tap those who do well to be the human face of their “massive” projects. This shows that they’re watching us.

“The Galactics have no shortage of money and so there will be some very massive projects and the funds will be made available but they will really ask for human leadership in order to be not seen as trying in any way to assume control.” (8)

The Divine Mother made it plainer: “We give you [your] allowance and we see how you do.” (9)

I asked Michael twice to confirm that those who do well will be used for larger and larger projects and he confirmed it. Once in 2013:

Steve: Am I correct in thinking that those people who cultivate generosity will be used as channels for further abundance?

Archangel Michael: Yes, that is correct. Understand: love begets love; generosity begets gratitude, begets generosity; joy begets generosity, begets gratitude. You are absolutely correct. (10)

And again in 2016:

Steve: Now I have been saying to readers that the Company of Heaven is watching financial wayshowers and stewards.

Archangel Michel: That is correct.

Steve: And that those who do well – in other words, do the job of hydrating society – will find themselves supported to go forward.

AAM: That is correct. (11)

In 2016 as well, Michael acknowledged that “those who are in a position of stewardship, of beginning projects that lead the way to the building and the re-creation of what Nova Earth is truly about … [will] become the spokesbeings for many.” (12)

So, to pause here, we’ve demonstrated that we have higher-dimensional guides, that they interact with us on a personal and social level, and that those who show promise are given ideas and used in bigger projects. These are the mechanisms by which higher-dimensional beings work with us today.

But, if we were to go back millennia to look at inventions like the use of the bow and arrow or spear, what have our guides to say on the diffusion of those ideas?

At that time, our guides still worked with us, I’m sure, but few of us would have been aware of it.

The Divine Mother acknowledged the principle of geographical diffusion of an idea – that the higher dimensions send out the same inspiration to many, possibly on different continents. In 2015 she said:  “There are, guaranteed, many, a multitude, of beings upon the planet who, give or take a little, have been given the same inspiration.” (13)

And Mike Quinsey’s sources explain that the higher-dimensional galactics place ideas for inventions in the minds of prospective inventors:

“From the higher realms we place ideas upon those people who are in a position to use and develop them for the benefit of humanity. We ensure that a number of suitable people are ‘programmed’ so that the ideas do not become dormant.” (14)

I acknowledge other explanations of geographical diffusion such as the collective consciousness. I’ll probably do a follow-up article on how that phenomenon works.

The Divine Mother and the galactics have acknowledged inspiring the same idea in the minds of many. When combined with the descriptions of how our guides work with us, we have a speculative explanation for the phenomenon of geographical diffusion. The answer is that the Company of Heaven inspire the same idea in the minds of many, sometimes on different continents.

Tracking How We Feel – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Messenger by Susan Seddon Boulet

****

Tracking How We Feel

There’s a part of the work that I do that fit perfectly with how I feel in general, when Archangel Michael brought it to my attention in 2012. He called it the work of a “monitor.”

Archangel Michael: You are a monitor. We have not talked about this a great deal.

Steve: No. I don’t know what a monitor is or does, Lord.

AAM: You monitor what is happening upon your planet. You observe what is happening and you share your observations of what is happening. (1)

That fits perfectly with my background. Only eight lifetimes on Earth. Enduring interest in anthropology, patterns of behavior, largescale events, language and communication, etc. Studied broadbush, overarching disciplines and their near relations. All of these fit with the role he described.

Ellie Miser from the Pleiades is, I suspect, also a monitor. She used to post strange and delightful things she came across about humanity, like the Darwin Awards.

I never could figure out why she was reporting on humanity rather than the galactics. But she was performing the work of a monitor. She was helping the folks back home better understand us.

I wanted to understand how a world war could get started and so I studied the Second World War for a long time. Only recently do I feel I have any kind of understanding of it.

And here I am reporting my impressions of humans.  That’s a long preamble.

Beginning my report home.

What seems to motivate humans more than anything else is how they feel.

If a mob is turned against a person, they could kill him. If the same mob is inspired with compassion and love, they could welcome him back into their midst. How they feel is their chief motivator, it seems to me.

Ending my report home.

Lately I’ve been tracking how I feel. My emotional IQ is in bad shape. I need to do pushups in the area to get my awareness back to where it was many years ago.

I may have to really reflect for a minute or more before I can identify the way I’m feeling, these days. In olden times, I’d say “I’m out of touch with my feelings.” And I am.

If I’m out of touch with my feelings at this moment, I don’t want to remain so.

Time to get back in touch with what is the largest single motivator of our behavior, individually and collectively. (2)

I’ve begun to get serious about my path in the last remaining time before we all go happily crazy instead of anxiously crazy.

I notice I’m now walking slowly around the neighborhood, usually deep in thought and not caring who sees me anymore. I want to be deep in feeling as well.

I need to get back in touch with the total being that I am, in this precious interlude before things get busy.

Footnotes

(2) If we want to watch someone who galvanized feeling and then used it for his own evil ends, watch any rally with Hitler during the 1930s. A whole nation subverted.

And it was repeated in Italy, Spain, Japan, and elsewhere. When China was liberated from the Japanese, it was still repeated by Mao in China.

Skillful dictators and politicians have played on the public sentiment or feeling to channel people’s emotional uplift into support for the regime since way before Machiavelli.  How people feel guides them in most important decisions.

So how I feel, as a student of awareness, becomes a matter of central importance for me to know.

Getting Bigger – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

***

Getting Bigger

When we begin to contemplate our bigger post-Reval roles, many of us may find ourselves in foreign situations, unknown territory, not speaking the native language (mathematics, finance, statistics).

Often the automatic response is to adjust the picture Third-Dimensionally, which to me is like adjusting it laterally. It’s what one sage called “moving your Scotty Dog [from Monopoly] around the board.” It just moves the pieces.

Moving some people here and others there doesn’t solve the problem.

The higher-dimensional response, I’m willing to bet, is something I think of as “getting bigger.”

Bigger than the fear, bigger than the situation, bigger than the cost we may pay.

We probably associate getting bigger with aggression, hostility, bullying, etc. I don’t mean flexing one’s muscles.

I mean the spirit getting bigger. I mean the soul taking over more of the machinery and driving it. I mean the heart leading the parade.

We all know what it feels like to get smaller – to feel more fear, anxiety, dread, etc. But many fewer of us know what it feels like to get bigger.

I can hardly describe it. Several times I’ve pulled a muscle and the actual experience of pulling it was like a knife going through butter.

Getting bigger is like the reverse of that. It’s like a knife going through butter but something bigger is suddenly created. A bigger me exists after that operation than was there before. But it’s born in the same miraculous and easy manner.

I call “bigger” into existence. I know that. But I don’t know how I do it.

We don’t need to examine things microscopically and understand them biochemically. We just need to be proficient in calling ourselves forth, standing forth, presencing ourselves – and then getting bigger.

Given that the roles of many of us will expand after the Reval, I think we’d benefit from adding this tool to our toolkit. How to practice getting bigger is something I’ll explore because I know I’ll need the skill.

Getting bigger leads to increased maturity, balance, security, patience, and compassion. (1) It feels better and allows us to bring love to the job instead of fear.

(1)  If there’s no increase in those qualities, one has not gotten bigger. Time to stop and go another way.

The Inner Work Behind the Outer Work – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Artist Nadezhda-Sokolova

***

The Inner Work Behind the Outer Work

I feel myself learning things and the learning simply arises from within.

It’s not a learning process I’m familiar with.

I’d like to let you see how an idea bubbles up and where contemplation of that inspired thought then leads to.

Here’s a “lesson” that is bubbling up at the moment.  I hear: Look first at what I can change about myself and my situation before asking others to change. (These kinds of inspirations often come phrased as “I” thoughts.)

I begin to play with the idea. What can I do to handle this situation before asking someone else to handle it? Maybe there’s nothing I can do. That may happen frequently but still I can look.

I assess the new thoughts that arise. Proceeding in this way strengthens personal responsibility and individual initiative, humility and compassion. It sets an example. It riles the fewest number of people and shows we’re willing to share the pain as well as the gain.

I’m going to be the CEO of a number of companies. If I approach my task expecting everyone around me to change before I change, I’m going to be carrying water uphill in a leaky bucket.

What’s happening as I contemplate this inspired idea is I’m beginning to consciously create the context I’ll later occupy, which is CEO/executive leader.

I’ve reached the end of the line with the expectation that other people change before I will. I have to let that one go as no longer functioning, as being dysfunctional in an ascending society and a new-paradigm group of companies.

Letting go is one thing. But what action looks like after letting go is another.

What does a society look like where I see what about me and my situation I can change before asking other people to? Can I handle the matter in question by a simply changing?  A change of office, perhaps? A change of procedure? A change of habit?

Contemplating it leads off in all kinds of different directions: I’ve spent three score years and ten living off the blessings of this society. Can I not see going first in adapting as giving back?

Have I not lived in one of the most peaceful, economically-blessed areas of the world? Have I anything to complain about? Probably nothing.

Nonetheless, letting others go first in my consideration runs counter to my aggressive-male temperament.  I see entitlement arise. I hear a lot of growling in the background. I experience it all without reacting.

I return to my contemplation. It isn’t the size of the matter in question that’s important, I hear. It’s the attitude.

How might this attitude of me first in adapting show up in remuneration? In benefits plans? In office arrangements?

As I simply remain open, I have thoughts like “the best leaders share their troops’ conditions,” “equality as far as circumstances allow,” etc.

The idea has just arisen in me. I don’t understand it very well. I don’t know what it involves, where it leads, and what it contributes. I don’t know how to apply it.

What I’ve tried to do here is just allow you to see the way in which “learning” is happening these days to at least one ascending being.

Often I can’t keep track of the ideas, so many appear in my head over the course of a day, lessons being shown to me, downloads, personal teachings.

This is the inner work behind the outer work. This is me expanding to become an executive and a leader, future-pacing – and more to the point future-unfolding and future-integrating. This process would happen whether I was conscious of it or not. In my case, I’m simply conscious of it.

Michael asked me in my last reading (June 6, 2018) to begin to dream.

“Begin your dreaming about Nova Earth; about the practicality of what life looks like, feels like and tastes like. It is often very difficult to envision an entire planet in reconstitution and rebirth.

“So where we ask you to spend some time thinking, envisioning, imagining and luxuriating is in the construction and the texture of what your [local] world … looks like.” (1)

I’m starting to dream now of offices, equipment, administrators, trainers, decision-makers, researchers, personnel officers….

In my mind the Michaelangelo Fund is already open for business. And I’m growing into the role that’s expected of me.

In the past I haven’t much exercised my imagination and now I’m doing it with full intent and purpose.

The Biggest Changes – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Buddha in Meditation Painting @ FIZDI

***

The Biggest Changes

I think the biggest change I see in myself … well, there are two, really.

The first is that I’m moving from the intellectual to the experiential level of life. Sort of getting up and moving house.

I hear myself saying, after St. Francis: “Words, Bernardo, words. Once I believed them.” (1)

And I’m beginning to feel that way. Words, words, words – I don’t care how wise they are. I want more than just words.

I want experience. I want to feel deeply and divinely. I want the ambrosia of bliss. I want the nectar of transformative love.

It’s been so hard to bring myself to acknowledge this. But it’s true. I want the experiential life now, as I knew it years ago. I want more from life than mere ideas.

***

The second is that I’m going inward. The monk in me is asserting itself.

Michael said that he was clearing the space around me and that seems very true. (2)

In the background relationships and obligations are changing, with a rather dramatic suddenness. But all of it makes sense.

It’s almost as if someone is saying, “Places, everyone. Cameras. And action,” leaving us alone with our thoughts.

In some instances, dependencies have been broken. But even so, I feel OK.

I have enough guidance from my readings to do the jobs I’ve been asked to do. And I feel ready.

So from now until the Reval, I find myself in this incredibly-valuable time of stillness, silence, space.

I feel no draw to fill the space up again.

Instead I feel drawn, for the first time in years, to meditate, to go inwards, to experience myself as deeply as I possibly can.
