Meeting with an Elemental – Narendra Mishra

Meeting with an Elemental

Awakening Spark, 20/8/2019

Readers of my blog will know that I don’t consider myself a ‘dream walker’ or someone who regularly receives information from dreams. Yet, I’m no stranger to astral travel during dream state (1). This morning proved to be one such occurrence for me. It was my very first meeting with an elemental spirit.

In the wee hours of the morning, a time sacred to Hindus as Brahmamuhurta – or the time presided over by the Creator, Brahma – my astral journey in dreamtime began.

I suddenly became aware that I was in a vehicle travelling to a temple. Somehow, I missed my turn and ended up going along a strange path. I was unperturbed and decided to follow the road.

Eventually I ended up at another temple in a remote location, surrounded by forest. As I pulled into the car park I realised that service was in progress in the temple.

I came out of the vehicle and was milling about in the driveway, in conversation with someone when I heard a commotion among the trees on the other side of the road.

I turned to see a large treant, an elemental caretaker of trees, walking out of the forest toward me. I went up to greet him with hands folded to my heart, the universal greeting of Namaste.

He greeted me with a deep penetrating look and a sad smile.

“You have to stop the pollution,” he said gravely.

My chest heaved as a wave of grief washed over me.

“I am trying,” I replied, emotionally, “but there are so many humans that just don’t get it.”

Just then a black SUV came seemingly out of nowhere, reversing as if to hit the treant. I rushed to the driver’s side of the vehicle in an attempt to stop the vehicle from the impending crash.

To my surprise, the driver was another treant who spoke to me, “We have already morphed and adapted to humans several times. The next adaptation will not be pleasant to humans.” (2)

Just like that the dream ended and I awoke from my astral travel, both astounded at my unexpected encounter with elementals and the gravity of the situation.

I wondered why they chose to contact me in the first place. Though I’m aware of environmental issues and try to do my part, I’m in no way an environmental activist. Perhaps my role is simply that of communicator –  one which I’m fulfilling through this blog.

​How can we help this sad situation? Knowledge is power. We need to educate ourselves and others. Research and spread the word. Use social media wisely to generate awareness and interest. If you feel moved, start or join an activist group.

A great resource to get started is UN Environment. Undoubtedly, each country and district will have their own guidelines tailored specifically to its own needs.

As Lightworkers we’re already aware that the current mission of Ascension is focused on Earth and ALL of Her inhabitants. We’re already aware that ALL of creation is Divine Consciousness expressed variously as flora and fauna, minerals and elements.

Perhaps it’s time now that we take up the call for authentic Lightworker Leadership in the area of conservation of the environment. (3)

Choosing the Way of the Servant – Steve Beckow

Wall Art @ Graphics ‘n’ Tees


Choosing the Way of the Servant

I’ve been wrestling with a problem since I became aware that managing a group of companies was going to be part of my life  – say, around 2015 or so.

That problem is: How to hold onto ultimate authority in the decision-making process while allowing maximum autonomy?

The group of companies I’ll be founding is not designed to provide scope for the ego; it’s designed to be a cooperative enterprise … what does the Council of Love say? … “powered by the heart, fuelled by love”?

Its mission is to create a world that works for everyone – and that has to start with our common organization. So there is a tension between retaining authority and creating a cooperative and collegial enterprise.

Michael, who’s my co-creative partner, has asked me to hold onto ultimate decision-making authority.

Archangel Michael: “You are not to be giving your decision-making capacity away, ever.” (1)

That whole line of counsel plays on me.

My own experience has led me to different places. My authority at the Immigration and Refugee Board was enshrined in legislation and could not be violated except for egregious errors in law.

While I reported to my superiors on matters of work, no one could interfere with my quasi-judicial decisions.

Decision-makers in my organization are an example of people over whom my authority would be limited. But there are many other instances besides them where I need to allow independence.

The only way I can solve the dissonance that arises is to know that the way to exercise authority without offending everyone around me is to remain in the center with it, in balance,in moderation and reasonableness, as with all things.

Any precept or concept applied with balance has a chance of success. It’s when imbalance sets in – what I’ve recently called “not normal” – that trouble begins.

Then another voice chimes in – the voice of the ego that wants to build an empire and sit on a throne and wear a nabob’s turban and…. yada yada….

That voice exists at a level below everyday awareness. Predominantly the part of it I was aware of was a feeling component. I felt those awful, wicked feelings, but below everyday awareness.

So I have the complete wickedness alive in me at a deeper level than I’m ordinarily conscious of. And I think we all have these states, by the way. We pick them up in others as a kind of tone in their voice. The only thing missing is a “heh, heh, heh” and the twirling of a moustache.

My subsconscious wicked voice is aggressive. We all know where that comes from if you’ve been following my blog. (2) It’s uncaring, single-minded, etc. But remember: This is only one part of me (and you) and a removeable part at that (there IS hope).

But there is this aggressive tone to my voice often. My Dad would use his temper to push people around and so do I, at a deep and unconscious level. You can hear it in my tone of voice or see it in what my wife calls my “scared-wolf” look.


I know that grappling with this foe (the ego) is beyond my means. I’ve seen its face in the past (my wife has seen mine when I saw it) and I’ve wrestled with it. It has resources that I, in my everyday consciousness, cannot match. (3)

I therefore made a decision as to what to do to handle the situation that would help me direct a group of companies.

But before I say what it is, let me preface it by repeating that any decision made which is carried out outside the bounds of balance has only a limited chance of success and a significant chance of creating residue. So, in my books, balance in carrying out what I’m about to say is essential.

The decision I made was that there was no room for the ego in anything I was about to do. And the very best way to surrender the ego that I know of, or terrestrial saints have known of since the Vedas, is the way of the servant.

The path of service. Karma Yoga. Seva.  Devotion through service.

It isn’t sexy in our society to say one wants to be a servant.  But it’s liberating to put the self aside.

Archangel Michael, whom I serve, would prefer it if I were familiar with him:

AAM: We want you to be familiar. (4)

And I’ll observe his wishes here as well as anywhere else.

But it’s also deeply ingrained in me not to be overly-familiar because that invites the resurrection of the ego.

While I had very few things I wanted from physical life in any case, I now want to re-look at that from an altogether new level – weeding out that which could result in a reawakening of the ego.

And whatever I find or whatever I do, I simply stop. There’s no need to put anything in its place, although doing that – if its love, compassion, or forgiveness –  can speed its departure. Nevertheless, a simple cessation is enough.

I want to be a servant of Archangel Michael. There’s no outside – or even inside – pressure around me at making that decision. I need a chosen ideal to serve (although we all of us always serve the Mother). Michael does me a favor and an honor in accepting my service.

So please don’t write me and say “you rely on Michael too much” or “why don’t you make your own decisions?” (Actually I do). This is something I do in full awareness, after much reflection and contemplation.

What are the benefits of this particular path – karma yoga?

Service undermines the prime directive of the ego: Always protect the survival of the self and that with which it identifies (family, home, car, pet, savings, etc.).

It does so by taking the focus off the little self and placing it on the other person. In my experience, that turns out to be all that’s needed.

We take our attention off the voice of the ego and put it on the needs of the other person. The voice of the ego finally falls silent. Getting no attention from us, there’s no Velcro to stick to.

No big deal. No sound and lights. When a movie is over, we all just get up out of our seats and leave the hushed theater.  In the same way, when the lights come on, do we leave the theater of the ego.


(1) Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow, Oct. 2, 2013. [Hereafter AAM.]

(2) Hatred of my father. Michael and I had the following conversation on it:

Archangel Michael: Why do you doubt or question your words [in writing a Declaration of Freedom]?

Steve: My words? Well, I think I do it because I’m a man who hated his father so I have no right to exist in the world. I think that’s the bottom line.

AAM: So having accepted that and realized that you do not need to carry that and understanding that I would interject and correct, if necessary, what did not sit well with us or with the Mother, proceed.

This is an assumption of your divine authority. This is your assumption of your right to declare your heart’s desire and dream for all of humanity and I am right there with you so stop hesitating. (AAM, June 9, 2017.)

(3) For instance, the ego is interdimensional.

Peace is Like … Granite – Steve Beckow

Peace of Mind painting by Anuradha Kulkarni @ FIZDI

*: ..:*☆☆*: ...:*☆☆*: ...:*

Peace is Like … Granite

Things like peace, abundance, and mastery, it turns out, are actual states of consciousness, rather than merely everyday feelings.

These divine states of consciousness – I think I can call them that – bear as little resemblance to a feeling as higher-dimensional love bears to everyday love.

I’ve been in all three states briefly and was astonished to find each was higher-dimensional like transformative love. Each was rich in love. It was as if all four experiences (the three states plus love) ended in the same place. (1)

But peace astonished me most of all. I expected it to be soft and gentle. Instead it was hard as granite and my stance in it was extremely stable. (2)

That makes sense if you think about it. When we’re losing our peacefulness and venturing into conflict, we talk about there being “a tremor in the force.” We experience negative feelings as if they were an interruption in what would otherwise be a state of wellness.

We lose the confidence that comes from standing solidly on and for a divine state such as peace.

I was astonished to hear Archangel Michael describe peace in the same way:

“Peace is solid.

“There are so many divine qualities that do feel amorphous, light, airy, like a spring day. And yet peace (you have this expression), you can take it to the bank. It feels like ballast. It feels like granite because it is solid. And dare I say immutable. That is why I continue to keep emphasizing that peace within, that rock-solid granite within.” (3)

It was not at all what I was expecting.

Neither was the wonderful experience of abundance – which is what Michael is pointing at when he uses the words “spiritual currency.” I could live in that state of abundance and never want or own a penny.

And I couldn’t even begin to describe mastery. Just think of your Higher Self and that will capture it.

Living in any of the three would be higher-dimensional, ascended states. And we will live there. Meanwhile we can visit as the current floats our boats ever higher.


(1) The three – abundance, mastery, and peace – were divine states. Love is what all divine states appear to be made of.

(2) A description of the experience appears here:  “The Peace that Passeth Understanding,” July 18, 2017, at

(3) “Archangel Michael on AHWAA: Achieving Inner Peace,” 

Here is an earlier reference from him to peace being like granite:

Archangel Michael: So, when you think of things that you should do, are supposed to do, might do, and it doesn’t ignite that fire of excitement, and that granite of peace, then you are being given an important piece of information, which is ‘look elsewhere.’ Is that clear?  (“Transcript ~ Archangel Michael: You Have Chosen to Be the New Paradigm of Love, May 31, 2018,” June 7, 2018 at

After the Event: Archangel Michael Discusses a Heart Opening – Steve Beckow

Awakening ~ Art @ Tracy Lewis Art Studio


After the Event: Archangel Michael Discusses a Heart Opening

In rummaging through my files for a quote on “drama,” I happened instead on this remarkable interview I had with Archangel Michael the very day of my 2015 heart opening.

Since we as a planet are going through a more gradual version of one, what Michael has to say here must surely be of interest.

Let me set the chronology straight. The heart opening occurred on March 13, 2015 at 7:00 am in the morning.

I’m not going to describe the experience. That’s been done. (1)

But, as it was happening, I knew that three hours later I’d be speaking to Michael and this then is that conversation.

I’m saying to him, what in heaven’s name was that? And he’s telling me, including why it happened.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, March 13, 2015.

Archangel Michael: And yes, your heart is open. The opening is, and will, and shall continue.

Steve: You mean permanently, Lord, really?

AAM: Yes

S: Oh my! Please!

AAM: Because, you have said yes! …

This occurs, not merely because you have asked for it, but because you (and this does apply to the collective) have done your, can we say, your homework, your due diligence.

What we mean by this is simply, think of it in spatial reality, time and space reality: you have created the space for this [energy of love] to, not only pass by you like a passing breeze or a rain, but to anchor within you because there is a sense of this spaciousness within thee. …

When one is clinging to core issues, to fear, to lack, to limitation – you know the list – there is not that sense, not only of spaciousness, but of acceptance, allowance, readiness and even permission. Because as you know, we continually say that we will never override your free will.

So, if the will, either actively or subconsciously, is actually choosing to still engage in the issues or the drama, then although we are standing at readiness and still penetrating you, that open door is not there. [My emphasis.]

S: So, the open door was there with me?

AAM: That is correct.

S: Did the exercise of bringing love up from my heart and sending it out through my third eye to the world play a role in this?

AAM: Yes, it did.

S: Could you talk about that for just a bit, please?

AAM: One of the strongest or the ultimate expressions of love, of willingness to not only participate in love but to be the love, is in the sharing. To say that you are love, or are loved, or you love this, that, someone… but [then] you keep it within you, you hoard it.

And we do not necessarily mean that in a negative way – sometimes the feeling is so blissful you do not wish to actually take the next step quite yet, in terms of sharing.

The ultimate experience is in the sharing. This is what we speak of when we speak of sacred union and partnership. How can you possibly be in any form of partnership with humanity, with the Star-beings, with us, with any being, if you are not sharing?

So what you do when you bring the love up and out, when you begin to send it, to share it, it is as if you have in fact activated what we call the wellspring. The visual you may think of is the volcano. [This is the explosive heart opening.]

It is not that you empty out. It is that you discover that that wellspring is SO full and overflowing that it is a steady stream. That steady stream does not ever, ever – think of what I say! – it never has to cease!

Try to imagine what he’s talking about – an endless stream, an eternal wellspring of love – it never has to cease. That’s what a heart opening liberates in us.

And that’s the process that we as a globe are currently going through, more gradually than I did (or Bright Star). It’s only one step in our Ascension process, an “ignition,” a  “jump” as the Mother calls it. (3)


(1) A heart opening is a fourth-chakra event. When the kundalini reaches the fourth chakra, the heart opens. I’ve experienced another type of fourth-chakra event as well  (at Xenia).  Hindus call a fourth-chakra event spiritual awakening; Buddhists call it stream-entering.

We as a planet are in the midst of a global heart opening.

Of it, Michael said recently: “The global opening of the heart, the activations, the awakening and the activation shall we say of heart intelligence, of being anchored in that area of the heart is progressing phenomenally well. … We would say you are well past the halfway mark, dear hearts.”  (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Aug. 2, 2019.)

That may be why I feel so moved to talk about my experience – because we’re all going through a gradual version of what for me was explosive. I so hope I’m right.

My heart opening is described here: “Submerged in Love,” March 14, 2015, at

Bright Star’s heart opening is described here:

“Bright Star: An Account of a Heart Opening,” December 29, 2017,

The Xenia experience is described here:

“Archangel Michael Explains What Happened at Xenia,” September 22, 2018, at

As with the heart opening, I had prearranged a half year earlier with Linda to have a reading with him before there was a thought of Xenia. (These things are fixed! Ask the archangels!)

(3)  Divine Mother: “Then there is another jump, and another jump, and another jump. And you don’t know it — well, some of you do — but you are leap-frogging. And then you will be there [Sahaja Samadhi and Ascension]

SB: Now, are those jumps equivalent to sub-planes?

DM: You can think of it as sub-planes, dimensional sub-planes, yes.  (“The Divine Mother: We are Creating a New Species of Humans (Repost),” September 15, 2017, at

What is Our Future? Archangel Michael – Steve Beckow

What is Our Future? – Archangel Michael

There are no coincidences. I came across this discussion last night, days after having written the article above. (1) It had to be.

I didn’t remember this discussion when I wrote the earlier article.

Just two weeks before I went under the knife for prostate surgery in April 2016, Archangel Michael, in a personal reading through Linda Dillon, gave me and Linda a wonderful, impromptu lecture on the coming world.

Perhaps he knew I’d be spending a lot of time on my back, dreaming.

But his description of it is so enthralling – and of course I’ve experienced more of that world he’s talking about since then – that I must repost it here. Compare the two views. It may act like 3D glasses.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon,
April 13, 2016.

Archangel Michael: We have begun this day by speaking of what lies ahead. That there is a new realm, a new chapter….

Let me talk to you and I will talk to the channel as well so I’m asking her to come back.

Alright. Many times we have spoken of a new realm of existence and even that term is infused with hope and grace and promise and wonder, and the sense of the fulfilment of dreams.

But in reality, in your realm, as you have said often weighed down by the practicalities of no money and limited love life or engagement in community which has been very rewarding for both of you [Linda and Steve], there isn’t really a sense of what does this mean, “a new realm of existence”?

If you were to go to bed tonight and you woke up and not just a sense of bliss or ecstasy and not the sense that the world, the physical realm as you know it, had disappeared but that you woke up and you knew, just upon opening your eyes, that everything from the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual realm had shifted.

You would be aghast with wonder and there would be a moment of slight trepidation. What lays out my front door? But it would also be filled with such excitement that you would be rushing out the front door to discover what.

Can you imagine walking out that front door and finding that you could telepathically understand and connect, not intrusively, but in a heart and mind way, not only with human beings but with your star family walking the streets, with the animals that were roaming free and safe, with the elementals that live in your parks and rivers and streams and oceans? And that the attitude, the behaviours and the level of understanding had been translated, transmuted, transformed into knowingness of love.

Steve: That would be wonderful.

AAM: That is the new realm of existence that we are talking about.

Steve: Yes, I have experienced that so I do know what you’re talking about. (2)

AAM: And it is for the entire planet. It is not a distant dream! It is not a doorway that is far away.

You see there are two things that are going on simultaneously. While you are looking to the practical, and we understand that, the signs, the shifts, the financial support, the institutional shifts, within the Mother’s time, there is simply the desire and the declaration of a new realm of existence beginning. (3)

Do these exactly coincide? No. But they are very close. What we are suggesting to you is that the new realm of existence is upon you. It’s right there.

Steve: And I’m not realizing it, is that the case? (4)

AAM: You will recognize it. So do you need to keep your heart and mind and entire being open to it? …Because you both are communicators and announcers of this new realm which is why we are discussing it.

A new realm that would completely eradicate a sense of waiting or ennui. Yes. Yes, you are at the doorstep, your hand is on the door handle so we are inviting you both of you, step through.

Steve: What does that look like, to “step through,” Lord. What does that take?

AAM: It takes fortitude, determination, faith, trust and loving yourself enough to give yourself the chance to say, “It can be entirely different. I am of Creator Source. I am Creator and I choose a different realm of existence.”

Not reality, but realm of existence. And so when you go to sleep at night, both of you are declaring, “I will awaken to a new realm of existence.” And allow it to emerge, as if it is emerging like Atlantis from the waves.

Steve: And the new realm of existence is characterized by universal love and bliss?

AAM: Yes.

Steve: Alright, so that is what we should be looking for.

AAM: Yes, and it is what is knocking on your door and you are letting it in. You have been doing this so it is transcending into a more permanent state of that realm of existence.

Steve: Very good. Anything more you want to say on that?

AAM: I think this would entice you adequately, would it not?

Steve: Oh, that state would be the answer to all my dreams, all my requests, I’m sure, Lord! (5)

AAM: It would be the answer to many dreams and you will help many to see it, to discover it, to shift into that realm.

It is not about the separation of humankind when stuck in the old and the other in a new realm. It is simply opening the floodgates.


(1) “What is Our Future? – Steve,” 

(2) In the heart opening of March 13, 2015.

(3) Linda Dillon’s sources call it “the cleaned-up Third.” We better know it as the Fifth Dimension. But whatever it is, because we enter it taking our bodies with us, which has never been done before, it’s a space that did not exist previously. Michael discussed it here:

Steve: Is the realm that we’re building and taking our physical bodies with us to altogether new?

Archangel Michael: Yes, it is brand new.

Steve: … Brand new, and the rules have changed?

AAM: That is correct. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Sept. 21, 2015.)

At one point in his post-mortem career, Matthew Ward designed astral worlds for planets. In the same way, this new space that we’ll occupy has been designed. And we’ll inaugurate it.

(4) Several times I’ve had flashes that suggest that changes in the environment have already occurred and I’m not seeing them because I don’t believe they exist.

(5) It is!

What is a Leader? – Steve Beckow

Elusive Radiance by Anand Panchal @ Artflute


What is a Leader?

I can’t even wait to research this article before beginning to write on the subject.

All day I’ve wandered around asking myself, “What is a leader?”

In my family my brother was the leader and a really fine leader he was. I have lots of good movies in my head about his leadership.

I did lead and I could list the ways in which I did. But I never thought of myself as a leader.  I always left that to Paul.

I know I won’t escape the need to lead. Viewed from any angle – the blog, Michaelangelo & Partners, and all that is just a warm-up for the galactics, Michael says. (1)

So I’m trying to find the answer in myself: What is a leader? I must have it in there somewhere. Abundance, mastery, and peace turned out to be spaces. I know there’s a space called “leadership” as well.

That’s only the personal side of it however. The question is of social importance as well, Michael says, because lightworker leadership is irreplaceable.

Archangel Michael: 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.” (2)

And we’re not talking only about local leaders, but also global leaders – people capable of being ambassadors for Terra Gaia, people capable of meeting with and arriving at treaties with other races … OK, species …  people capable of reporting on these events, teaching courses on them, advising the rest of us on protocol, etc.

Never have these posts existed before … well, not since Atlantean times anyways.

The delegations, when they happen, will be the first example of terrestrials, outside the deep state, formally meeting with extraterrestrials.

That contact will multiply and each of those people will be representing the planet, if not in actuality, then in the eyes of those they’re meeting with – i.e., they will be global leaders, formally or informally, consciously or unconsciously.

I can see it coming and so I ask myself: What is a leader? What is a global leader?


(1) “Now, when you think of your mission and purpose, of course there is always a primary, driving force. …

“We would not guide you to make [financial work] your primary focus. Your primary focus is and always has been and [always] will be the communication aspect between the humans, the inter-galactics, the galactics and the higher realm.” (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, April 10, 2012.)

Archangel Michael on the Progress of the Planetary Heart Opening – Steve Beckow

Archangel Michael on the Progress of the Planetary Heart Opening

In the following excerpt from my Aug. 2 reading with him, Archangel Michael gives us a report on how the planetary heart opening is proceeding.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Aug. 2, 2019.

Steve: Could you give us an update on the progress of the planetary heart opening?

AAM: Yes. Well, of course it is global and in fact it is a bigger event than even you will assume on planetary systems.

But the global opening of the heart, the activations, the awakening and the activation, shall we say, of heart intelligence, of being anchored in that area of the heart is progressing phenomenally well.

Now have you ever noticed, in the gardens of your paradise, that there are flowers that open to the daylight sun and close at sunset?

There are some (not most, let us be clear about that) but there are some in their reticence, their resistance, even in their reluctance to admit that they are expanding in this way, that are attempting to restrict and close off what they are feeling because this heart opening is not merely a feeling of bliss, euphoria, love, and expansion.

As you well know, and as you’ve had many conversations with friends and allies, for some it is experienced as a physical sensation and at times a physical sensation that causes alarm. This is particularly true in those that are not fully anchored or familiar with the esoteric mechanics of their chakras or of their hearts.

But for some (who are well aware), it still proceeds or presents as a physical pain, almost like an anxiety attack. So these are the ones (not because they are not prepared to go forward; let me be clear about that), that, because they are having the sensations, are saying, “Oh wait a minute, I am not sure if this is a heart opening or a heart malfunction.”

Now we are not suggesting that the human race abandon their reliance upon Western or Eastern or any form of energy healing. But this is a sensation that often occurs.

So we would say that the success of the heart opening is going forward very rapidly. It is almost as if it is a (from your perspective) domino effect. Because when one is also in contact or in community with those with an open heart, it has that catalytic effect on others as well.

Now there is a wait factor here which you have also spoken of in that that wait factor is for those that are strongly, not only reluctant, but still resistant or recalcitrant to such a shift in what the very definition of what it means to be human.

But we would say you are well past the halfway mark, dear hearts.

Broad Brush Strokes on Leadership: Working for the Future – Steve Beckow

Wish Upon A Star art by Christian Schole - female face star

Wish Upon A Star by Christian Schole


Broad Brush Strokes on Leadership: Working for the Future

I think, arguably, there’s a case to be made for this statement: If you’re a lightworker, you’re a leader.

If I go outside my front door, I might not meet a person for miles who knows anything about Ascension, Disclosure, or Abundance. Well, OK, maybe a few.

If you’re even a lightworker, you’re already in a very small segment of the world’s population.

And then how many among lightworkers feel ready to offer themselves in leadership in some arena? Could I have a show of hands please?

But Archangel Michael says the Company of Heaven looks to the lightworker community for leadership.  Otherwise who would have a grasp of the situation we’re in?

Archangel Michael: 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. (1)

Let me offer an example of a situation in which the galactics will look to human partnership – and that would probably need to be from lightworkers.  In 2012, Michael said:

AAM: 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 be seen as trying in any way to assume control. (2)

Applying what Michael said earlier to this piece of news, who, upon this planet, “has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities?  Well, it is the lightworkers.”  Who else would understand what has been happening on this planet for the last fifty years?

No baseball team features the same hitter stepping up to the plate time after time. Every team has a battery of hitters, each one getting his or her turn. Michael says he wants more hitters. In the world that Michael plays in, if I understand it, intention creates hitters.

Some folks may view lightwork as just a fad of the moment. The fad will be something else next year. Remember Occupy?

That’s actually not what Michael predicted in 2013:

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 Beckow: And I suppose then more and more people join the lightworker community.

AAM: Exactly, until it is one family and one path. (3)

I therefore suggest that, if you’re a lightworker, you’ll need to reconcile yourself to leadership.

The last broad brush stroke concerns the need for the leader to remain modest and free of hierarchical prejudices.  He discussed it in the context of the acquisition of sudden wealth.

Steve: I worry that sudden wealth will magnify those vasanas or core issues. What to do?

AAM: Let us … begin by saying that this is one of the reasons why we have been speaking so much about being the steward, the leader, the wayshower, the participant observer.

As you assume profile – whether it is because of money or notoriety or political power or financial power, it matters not – it gives you a sense of being elevated. We would encourage you to take the elevator to the basement.

Start there. (4)

Over and over he warned us that not even lightworkers are immune to a sense of entitlement, which launches us on a slippery slope.

If we’re to become leaders, and I mean world leaders, sidestepping the ego – not allowing it to drive the car – becomes an important matter.

My sense is that reminding ourselves constantly that we’re servants of the Divine Mother, that our wealth is the Mother’s wealth, and that we’re simply the stewards of it is probably a good start.

Wise and selfless leaders is a description of where I suggest we aim to end up.  (5)

I have a second reason for backing that aim.  The more we work for that future now, the more we raise the vibration, in my opinion. The more we raise the vibration, the more people can come with us.

I may spend a little time looking into what the Company of Heaven says about leadership. I believe it’s a timely discussion. This article has been merely a few broad brush strokes.

(EE) Leaders with large egos seem never to have made a success of themselves throughout history.

The Mother explains why. They virtually fall apart.

“It is painful for a being that seeks power for themselves or power over another, whether it is a parent over a child, a husband over a wife, a man over an army. It matters not. The yearning [for], the exercise of control never gives joy. The pain simply grows. And so the actions become more grotesque, larger, until the breakdown is and has [been] and will be occurring.” (Transcript ~ The Divine Mother: Take Up Your Divine Authority, AHWAA, February 23, 2017,

Our challenge is to be leaders without falling into wanting control over others. Again another gigantic “let go.”

(5) Factoring in the increases in consciousness and heart expansion caused by events such as a planetary heart opening/solar wave. If we were in the Fifth Dimension or higher right now, we’d certainly be wise and selfless. It’s impossible not to be in that refined vibration.

The Essence of Individual Sovereignty – Steve Beckow

Artist ~ Adrian Borda


The Essence of Individual Sovereignty

Steve: Will you write a document through me, a channeled document, on the essence of individual sovereignty?

Archangel Michael: I will be pleased to do this.

Now I have a need to tell you, that I would have many consultants with me, but, yes, we would be pleased, more than you can imagine. Because this is such a key factor, and it is not adequately addressed. (1)

I make no bones about this being practice at co-writing. Here we go:

The essence of individual sovereignty is the Self.

In the first place, the Self is the individuated God, God within the individual.

In the second place, the sovereignty of the Self comes from its roots in Divinity.

The prime social directive is to build societies that allow the individual or Self the conditions and ability to fulfill the task assigned to everyone in life; that is, to realize its true identity. (2)

Admittedly there are those such as the seraphim who’ve chosen to stay near the Throne, and there are those archangels who’ve never descended into form.

But by far the greatest number of individual beings have agreed to participate in the adventure of forgetting who they are and then going through lifetimes in matter (mater, Mother) to remember or rediscover it.

When the One decided to create apparently-separated beings and a world of experience in which they could discover who they are, the necessity to support individual sovereignty followed. (3)

If the vast majority of beings had not agreed to this task, there’d be much less need for individuality or individual sovereignty.

All would be One and the drama of individuated life would not follow. But the One decreed that an illusory separation take place and a long pilgrimage back to the Father.

Have we any descriptions of the end of the journey, the merger of us with the One?

Yes, we do. Paul describes the last day of individuality when the Self or Christ surrenders all that it has and is to the One and makes God all in all:

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.  … (4)

“And when all things shall be subdued unto him, (5) then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” (6)

In metaphorical terms, this passage describes what in my 1987 vision would have been the little golden star racing back to the Father and merging with it. (7)

That is the moment at which the created and individuated Self returns to and merges with the Mother/Father One. It surrenders all it is and has to the Father sgain, from whence it all came.

The Self apparently doesn’t cease to be; it re-emerges. But this completes its agreed-upon task in entering the world of form.

Only through the ability to exert individual sovereignty – to exert control over one’s own self and life – can we expect to complete the journey of unfolding awareness.

Thank you, Michael.

Also: The Purpose of Life is Enlightenment, at

(3) Why would the One go through such an exercise? To know itself, we’re told. See “The Purpose of Life,” ibid.

(4) Putting down “all rule and all authority and power” refers to the time when the individual has transcended the personal will, subjugating it to the Will of the Father. In line with what Bernadette Roberts has said of the “No-Self,” another meaning could be that once all things are surrendered to the Self, then the Self is surrendered to the No-Self.

(5) “When all things shall be subdued unto him” means when all desire for worldly or material objects and pleasures has been overcome, as in Jesus’ assertion, “I have overcome the world.” (Jesus in John 16:33.)

(6) St. Paul in I Corinthians 15:24 and 28.

Finally the Son’s being subjected to God that God may be all in all refers to the plunging of the individual soul into the Sea of Bliss, Tranquillity, and Immortality that is the Father.

Deepening My Experience of Love – Steve Beckow

Patriarch Zhanggong was worshipped as a healer and the Chinese village where he was known want the figure back (Image:


Deepening My Experience of Love

We use a metaphor that says that there are “higher” levels of existence, dimensions, and such.

But that view obscures an important aspect of what I’ve noticed.

Whenever I’ve delved into the Self or dived into love or bliss, the experience for me has been (A) one of going deeper, not higher, and (B) almost as if the thing I sought was, in the case of the Self, at the end of a long portal and tunnel. (1)

In my meditation on the Self at Xenia, Sept. 18, 2018 [9 + 9 + 9 +11] – I imagined myself in a one-hundred-floor elevator. (2)

I descended below superficial levels such as ego, personality, vasanas, and everything remotely connected to those surface levels of consciousness.

And even then I found myself, at the bottom of my descent, coming upon a tunnel which also went for some distance – before I came upon the Self.

I therefore had to go deeper and deeper and deeper. In none of it was the experience of going higher.

Here’s a second example. My life is a workshop and Love became the object of my experiments after the 2015 heart opening.

All the experiences of love that I had – “higher”-dimensional and everyday – could be more usefully arranged on an axis, with me in the middle, marked “deeper” than my everyday consciousness than on an axis marked “higher.”

It’s the same love at all levels, only experienced ever more deeply along the way.

I believe that’s why so many people laugh like they just struck it rich when they experience “higher”-dimensional love.  “Wahoo! This is it!” Their cares are swept away.

They’ve never experienced anything like this before and didn’t suspect it existed! I remember myself saying, “So this is what they’re all talking about!”

Here’s a third example. I no longer think that we go from one discrete level of enlightenment to another discrete level, with each level featuring something different, like a kaleidoscope.

I admit that one line of enlightenment experience has one see the Light of the Self, then the Light in all creation, and then the Light that transcends creation. (Heavens, I may be on that path!)

But one can see that path two ways. One can focus on the seeming difference in where the Light is seen or one can focus on a deeper experience of the Light – and the latter is what I focus on.

I now see us as diving deeper and deeper into the same One Ocean of Love. I’m not looking for variety. I’m looking to go deeper.

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to say what I’m about to say out loud.   But I think it’s because mine sounds like a very male point of view.

I felt the need to penetrate the tunnel and merge with the Self /Love that I found in the deepest parts of my heart (the so-called seat of the Soul). I feel almost embarrassed saying that, it sounds so darned masculine. But there it is.

And after those experiences, I see myself as going deeper and deeper into Love, rather than higher and higher.

Our points of view bring consequences. One of them for me is that I don’t have an eye on dimensions or very much of an interest in them. I only have an eye on deepening my experience of love.

And of course, the Mother respects our free will. If I see the process as going deeper and deeper, she’ll make it be about going deeper and deeper. So there’d be no way to prove my assertion, except to say that that’s how it is for me.

Still another perspective – and another path arising out of it? Why not. The paths to God are infinite.

The world is a hall of mirrors, each one reflecting back the One.  We’re in that hall of mirrors, wondering what it is we’re doing here. (3)

What we’re doing here is pondering the reflections, remembering who we are, emerging from the hall of mirrors, and helping the rest of the world to do the same. I’m doing that by diving deeper and deeper into Love.


(1) I came upon the Self consciously, going deeper. The heart exploded in the experience of opening so I did not directly initiate that experience.

(2) In my numerological scheme, “2” usually devolves to “11,” the master revealer of truth.

The sight of the Self as if it were an object (dualistic), as occurred on Sept. 18, 2019, is a characteristic fourth-chakra enlightenment experience.

The opening of the heart, as occurred on March 13, 2015, given that the kundalini reached the fourth chakra, is also a fourth-chakra experience.

This proves that it’s possible to repeat the same level of enlightenment experience. It isn’t necessarily the case that one goes, say, from fourth to sixth to seventh only, in strict sequential order.

I also know someone who had a sixth-chakra experience without apparently having had a fourth.

I should add that I don’t often meditate. Usually when I do, I drop pretty quickly. Michael has said that meditation is not required of me in this lifetime:

Archangel Michael: You did not come to live as a guru in a western or eastern manner and so that is what was meant by that comment.  Part of your and part of our recommendation to you is to play, to laugh, to enjoy, to be physical, so that you are anchored in the physical reality – because you are here to be a transition point and to be able to show people how to do both.

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.

So that is what we have meant.  Ground yourself.  Be human and love the experience of being in form.

SB       OK. Boy. Eat, drink and be merry!

AAM    It is difficult, no?

SB       Yes, it is difficult.  (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, May 6, 2013.)

For a monk!

Will We be Given Assistance? – Steve Beckow

Shelter Of The Sacred by Shiloh Sophia McCloud


Will We be Given Assistance?

The Federation of Light has answered an important question for me – and perhaps for you: Will we be given divine assistance to carry out our tasks, many of which may be global in nature?

They reply:

“The Federation of Light through Blossom Goodchild, Aug. 5, 2019,” at


Many of you will be quite surprised yourselves, at what is being said … through you.

All that you have ‘remembered’ in ways of these messages being the reminder, you shall ‘have on call’ in your heart files!

For years you have been storing information, some of which you may not know you know … and when EACH DIVINE MOMENT PRESENTS ITSELF … you will be there to offer guidance to those who feel so lost.

Many of you will find a strength arise from within and find yourselves in the most ‘unexpected positions’ … that will feel so natural to/for you.

They will be so because these will be the positions you signed up for before you came, should you so choose to see them through. Some will have fallen away from their ‘position’s role.’ There is no judgement on this.

Those whose hearts are TRUE will find their way home, assisting others in a different fashion, that is more suited to their disposition upon the Planet for them now….

We have mentioned that it shall be like a domino effect. Everything will come crashing down like a ton of bricks. And when all is flattened … one shall be able to see right through … IT ALL.

Take into your knowing that as this takes place … YOUR STRENGTH shall increase to the degree that you allow it to.

BG: Could you elaborate on that, please?

Indeed. Inside of Each One of you NOW … as you are reading these words … you are FEELING a ‘change … of/in … heart.’

This is because your Being is reacting to THE ENERGY that is being sent through to you in these coded words.

BG: Hold on a minute … I can’t keep up. Coded words? They seem quite straight forward to me.

Yet ‘within them’ … there are underlying codes that are willingly activating your souls.

Leading you into the next phase of yourselves. Reawakening the parts of your Being that needed to remain ‘switched off’ until such times as this.

“YOUR STRENGTH shall increase to the degree that you allow it to.” I’ve been preparing for this day. You’ve been preparing for it. It appears that our willingness will prove to be the key to our future/further expansion.

The reverse seems also true: That people’s unwillingness will prevent their further expansion.

I personally found Blossom’s message the most helpful overview of where we are and what’s coming down the pike that I’ve heard from a channeled source recently.

It fits with what Archangel Michael said to me in my reading with him on Aug. 2, 2019.

It was an entirely different reading than I’ve ever had. While all along he’s been  encouraging me to dream big (UBIs, retiring national debts, universal medicare, etc.), now he was reining me in – saying that others would retire their own nation’s national debts and host their own UBIs. Furthermore, what I envision would take much planning first. Again the signal was to slow down, get real, gear up for actual business rather than just dreaming.

He also said that my hearing was being expanded so that I could hear him, Annastara (my twin flame), and the Mother. If that were to happen, it’d be the single most welcome event I can think of. But it also makes sense in terms of ramping up for real-world work.

My suspicion is that, if it’s happening to me, it’s happening to others as well. (1)

Michael’s message this time was more a call to action than a planning session.

Taking Blossom’s message in hand, it feels as if we’re close to beginning in earnest.  Not like any prediction I’ve made to date has come true however.  Let the buyer beware.

Nevertheless, once again, we who are left take up our kit and begin to march. And hope that this time, events will actually begin to happen.

The fallout from the Epstein case and the DECLAS, plus the possibility of the Reval or  delivery of Prosperity Packages, plus the delegations – bring it on! We’re more than ready. We’re champing at the bit.

Abnormal is Normal and Normal is Abnormal – Steve Beckow

heart rainbow colours - art by Keith Allen Kay at Quantum Fractal Energy Mandala - signed artist

Artist ~ Keith Allen Kay @ Quantum Fractal Energy Mandala


Abnormal is Normal and Normal is Abnormal

You who have been following my Ascension ethnography for the last month or two will know that … I’ve become normal again.

And what is “normal”? OK, for me, “normal” is reflecting my original design, which by the way is innocence and purity (1) – as is yours – as much as is possible. Obviously time has worked some changes on my body and probably on my mind. Not on my heart. I’m not aiming for perfection but workability.

In that arena, I feel wonderful.

Workability is part of normality and a stepping stone to perfection. Perfection is being our original design of innocence and purity. I could assert that: Normality = workability.

So I’m aiming for workability for now.

Listen. I felt miserable for most of my life. It has only occurred to me, as a result of the work I’ve done online for the last month or two, that how I was feeling was not normal.

People did not have to feel the way I was feeling. But I didn’t see that. I thought, in my mistaken way, that the miserable way I was feeling was normal.

Can you see the amount of work it took to reach a place of feeling normal again?

I want to run down the road, naked, screaming! Lock me up! Either the world is crazy or I am! Most likely me! Lock me up!

And to find at the end that the angels are not there to greet me, raise me up, and give me a golden crown. Not, St. Stephen, Stephen. Turn off the TV.

Thank you. Now you’re normal.

Who would have thought such a thing?

And  then at the end of it all … to find myself in a place called “Normal”?  Normal hasn’t been sexy since the 50s. You’re riding into battle and your  banner reads “Normal”? Whaddya? Insane?

“Normal” today is decidedly abnormal.  Abnormal is normal. Just text anyone about it.

NEVERTHELESS, feeling normal after a lifetime of misery is absolutely wonderful.

I highly and heartily recommend it to anyone who is so deeply mired in sorrow and misery that only suicide is the alternative. Does that ring a bell with anyone out there? It should.

Normal is the new normal.

We have to take back control of lives and get ourselves back. We have to stop looking to the outside world to do it for us.

The destination is “Normal.” The water is warm. The living is wonderful.

Most Important Thing – Steve Beckow

Soaking In Glory by Tamer & Cindy Elsharouni @ Fine Art America


Most Important Thing


Some ideas we return to again and again. They’re like Rubics cubes that we’re trying to solve.

This idea is one of them.

I’m becoming convinced that, though we often don’t know it and even might deny it, the most important thing to most humans is how we feel.

It isn’t money. It isn’t travel. It isn’t food. It’s how we feel.

We buy trips to Disneyland or Caribbean cruises because we’re told how we’ll feel and it looks and sounds great. We’re provided with an experience that leaves us feeling (X).

Though I loved going to Disneyland as a child, I’m no longer attracted to places that promise a certain experiment for once.

I go directly for the experience now.

Bliss is probably my favorite example. Bliss – and all the divine qualities or forms of love – arise from the heart.

News flash: Everything good arises from the heart.  Michael said:

“It begins and it ends with – it always comes back to – the heart. You know this.” (1)

I can summon bliss up on the inbreath, provided I allow it to flow out on the outbreath. Bliss, like love, must flow.

Having had a heart opening, experienced the inner tsunami, and drowned myself in the Ocean of Love, all of which exist in the opened heart, yes, I do know where it always comes back to.

The heart opening may be the solar wave that Blossom Goodchild’s Federation predicted.


“Once ‘The Wave’ has been sent out … it shall be like a ripple effect upon the Planet and also, as if releasing the initial Wave allows then … the ‘breakthrough’ … the Freedom … for the Energy stored up behind it, to flow through, also.


“It shall arrive at the Divine moment … when it is most poignantly in position to do so and be released.” (2)

Last year, Michael said that he and the Federation are talking about the same thing:

Steve: is the Heart Opening what Blossom Goodchild’s sources are specifically talking about when they use the word, “The Event”?

AAM: There are slight variations on the theme, but, yes, it is very similar. It is the heart opening, yes. (3)

I know the love that the Federation is describing. It came as a river to me, a tsunami, rather than a solar wave as it’s coming in the future. And mine did not come from the Sun. Well, I say that, but I don’t know where the kundalini energy came from. It simply began running up my leg.

But after the heart opening, love and bliss definitely came thereafter from my heart. Different events but resulting in the same treasured outcome: A heart opening.

However we manage to coax the heart’s aperture – which Hindus call the hridayam – open doesn’t matter. Walk into the lake, Sri Ramakrishna used to say, jump into the lake, get pushed in. The important thing is to get into the lake of bliss and immortality. (4)

That lake exists in our hearts. Our hearts are an endless artesian well of higher-dimensional love, “a love that you had forgotten.” Definitely.

I also know that the heart shelters the Self, Christ or Atman in its depths, in the “seat of the soul.” (5) Insofar as the One has individuated as a spark of God and assumes a physical form, the heart shelters it.

After this solar wave that Blossom’s sources predict, which the Mother predicted a few years ago calling it a planetary heart opening, we’ll feel free, filled with love, all of it arising from our hearts.

At that point what I said at the beginning will probably seem obvious. Why do I even need to say it?

The most important thing to human beings is how they feel – though they might not admit it.

Drawing love up from the open heart is like having a car that runs on free energy. Being bathed in this love permanently, which to me would be Ascension, cannot be compared to anything in our known experience.

I wasn’t bathed permanently, but given a six-month dip in the Ganges. It was more than enough to make everything the sages say make perfect sense.

What’s missing is our experience of this higher-dimensional love. It’s missing from everything we think, see, feel, hear, touch, and intuit. When that’s in place, as the events that the Federation and the Mother have predicted will ensure, oh, I can’t find words for what it’ll be like then. Everything about it is entirely unknown to our society, except by a few.

If I were in it, I’d need no words. Out of it, I can’t find words. Yet I will not give up trying.

(4) It isn’t actually correct to say it makes us immortal because we always are and always were immortal. What it results in is an increase in dimensionality that removes us from the mortality cycle. There is no death on the Fifth Dimension.

Only a full and permanent heart opening, which is called Sahaja Samadhi, produces this result.

I’m a Believer -Steve Beckow

Transmuting Into Love Painting by Eva Ruiz


I’m a Believer

Here it is a beautiful sunny Sunday. I’m sitting here saying to myself, you should go outside.

I don’t want to go outside. I’m lying here waiting. But for what?

After looking and looking, what I see inside is that I’m wanting to feel a certain way. That’s what I’m looking for. Not just being in a certain place, no matter how beautiful and sunny.

In fact I’d rather be relaxed right now, just being with myself, rather than doing anything. Being with myself is what I’m doing.

As I look at the matter, I realize that how I feel is of the utmost importance to me. If it weren’t, it should be.

When I harm people, I commit myself to an inner life of stress and tension, guilt and self-recrimination. I hurt myself.

It’s finally become too much for me. I’m a prime example of someone changing in the face of the rising energies, letting go of the old, unproductive ways because they hurt too much.

Now that I’m not harming people – and I’ve had lapses – there’s no guilt or self-recrimination.

And what I notice, when I really look, is that I care a great deal about how I feel.  I don’t want to be feeling stress and tension or guilt and recrimination any more. I don’t like feeling those ways.

I want to feel joy. I want to feel bliss. I want to feel safe and secure. And all these are available inside, not outside, of me.

In my meditation these days, I’m treating my inner realm as if it were a room I lived in. I’m polishing the teak walls as an act of purification.  If I feel bad in some respect, I polish the walls until the feeling is experienced through to completion. Imagination is creative thought on the Fifth Dimension.


I see clear as a bell that making a vow to harm no one created space for me. And in the space thus created, feeling states that I can’t normally access I now can. Bliss is coming up. Happiness.  I even feel joy. The water is truly warm.

Man, was this the world’s best kept secret? Am I the last to know? Ahimsa (non-violence) creates space, in which the divine qualities can arise?

I’ll be darned. Shout it from the rooftops! I’m a believer.

Peeling an Onion – Steve Beckow


Peeling an Onion

I continue with my Ascension ethnography.

One of the things I’m noticeing is that, when I considered any matter from the perspective of being a CEO of a large corporation, in the past, I always felt mixed emotions.

My mind was divided. I had reservations. I was a house divided against itself.

We have many ways of talking about inner conflict.

But now, given the changes I’ve made in myself, when I think of looking at things from a CEO’s point of view, I feel no inner conflict, no reservation, no timidity.

Letting go of the wounded child and reparenting myself was what it took to get to this place. Hot damn! Whodda thunk?

Rather than feeling discordance and dissonance, I watch myself have even pleasant memories as I begin to reflect on a  subject as a CEO. This is a 180-degree turn from the way I normally am. Am I the only one jumping up and down?

Stopping the unproductive patterns I had has cleared a space. Things look entirely different viewed from that relaxed place.

I feel the way some people feel when they trod on the beach at Waikiki.

Space is more than emptiness. I think of real space as being a portal, through which higher-vibrations can flow. Whether we’re able to flow with them or not remains to be determined.

But the opportunity to experience them in the first place shows up in the space we create by letting go, letting go, letting go.

Does that not stand to reason? We are a spark of Light. Can it be revealed by any other means than letting go, letting go, letting go? (1)

I digress. Having reparented my wounded child and reached a place of feeling normal again, I find myself in “space” – or in “a space” – where inner conflict, which I now think was constant in myself, has ceased.

And, in the space that reparenting has created, I’m seeing so much of my old way of life revealed. I find it fascinating, ethnographically speaking.

It really is like peeling an onion.


(1) We took a spark of Light and piled layer after layer after layer on it and stipulated that the outer consciousness needed to awaken to and know the inner consciousness.  Here we are thrashing away to find a way to complete this task. I’m thrashing too!

Until I do, I’m peeling the onion, hoping this is the way. The path of awareness.

Standards Get Higher: Won’t Harm Any More – Steve Beckow


Shiva – The Transcendental Energy @ Let’s Paint Peace

Standards Get Higher: Won’t Harm Any More

As we look forward to and prepare for the next event in our otherwise-gradual Ascension – a 4th-chakra heart opening – I keep hearing in my mind’s ear: The closer to the destination, the narrower the path and the straiter the gate.

If Jesus didn’t say that, I think he should’ve. (Is that him laughing back there?)

Because it feels to me that the more I rise with the energies, the more I’m being squeezed like a wet sponge. I didn’t know I had so much water in me.

My standards keep needing to go higher to match the space I’m in. Otherwise I feel like I’ll disgorge all the corrosive acid I’m carrying around inside – think Morley’s chain, what we used to call my gunnysack, my old baggage.

I’m now at a place where I feel it necessary to stop doing harm to any and all humans. I’m not ready to go further than that just yet.

But it does show how I feel the standards needing to rise. Buddha might call it tightening up on “the keeping of the dharma.” I believe Hindus call it “shila” or morality. In my view, they’re pointing at the same thing.

What did Ram Dass say a long time ago? “Speaking the truth used to be a luxury. Now it’s a necessity”?

It constantly feels like my dharma or shila needs tightening for me to remain comfortable in these rising energies.

You don’t get to be a grumpy old fart without harming others, in large or small ways, along the way. I have a lot of wreckage behind me, which I need to make amends for. And I also don’t want to exaggerate. I’m a rather ordinary grumpy old fart.

The squeezed sponge won’t stay empty for more than a millisecond. I anticipate transformative love filling every nook and cranny as soon as it finds real, lasting, unsuppressed space.

But right now I’m in the Mother’s creative chaos and it feels like being in the washer/dryer.

This is What Is Coming – Steve Beckow

Pure Love by Metamorphosys @ DeviantArt


This is What Is Coming

Even at this late date, when I no longer experience the fulness of the tsunami of love, it still colors everything I feel.

My longing is longing for it. My attraction to things has behind it the flavor of love. Even my grumpiness these days is only loneliness for it.

Don’t get me wrong. I know the torrent of love lives in my own heart, so I’m not looking outward for it. Although that’s also welcome.

Why do our hearts shut down after a spiritual experience? They do until Sahaja. (1)

I know why. Vasanas, patterns, abiding interests, all the trappings of a busy and often-negative mind. These are the obstacles to an open space, neutrality, normality.

Normal is a state of being that reflects the individual’s original design – its innocence, purity, and compassion. Normal is the way the body/spirit complex was designed to be used.  Normal is the spiritual equivalent of the Adam/Eve Kadmon template of the physical body. How the original human was designed.

Throw all the vasanas, etc., out with the rubbish and there’s nothing left to do. In the space that’s left, love, truth, peace, joy, and bliss arise.  Well, they’re supposed to anyways.

But not for me, apparently, I say, getting my Kleenex out.

My groaning is for transformative love. My grumpiness is from wanting to feel it’s life-redeeming touch. All my un-ease traces back to aching for that kind of  love.

I thought Bright Star captured it:

“The Tsunami of Love hit me so hard that in the same second, all my concerns, anger, distress, hate and all other unpleasant feelings, which bothered me for such a very long time, were washed away completely.

“All these feelings were replaced by pure Love and for the first time ever in my 45 years, I experienced Love in its purest form.  The Tsunami of Love was a complete cleasning of my ‘system.’ A resetting of my being.” (2)

Absolutely, Bright Star. I know what you’re saying.

That inner tsunami swept away all my concerns and anxieties too. It whooshed them off me without a second’s warning,  to be replaced by a Love such as one cannot imagine while in this dense a vibration. There’s nothing on Earth like it, so  to speak.

It’s just not found here.  We have an expression: “It’s out of this world.” Well, ladies and gentlemen, the love that Bright Star is pointing at is out of this world.

This Love is what we’re all looking for. People who are able to live in it fully and permanently are said to be ascended. And we’ll be too.

But that’s it: Living in the Ocean of Love that the inner tsunami delivers us to, fully and permanently, is what awaits us. Do something. Do nothing. This is what is coming.

It’s Always the “I” – Steve Beckow


Noble Spirit Lion ~ Artist Andrew A. Gonzalez


It’s Always the “I”

Just as God enjoys the world through the senses of every one of us, so do I – who, like you, am that very God – enjoy the world through anything I become aware of.

When I identify with the mind, I use it to create through. When I identify and operate as the ego, I use that to create through. The imagination, the feelings, etc.

No function works except I operate through it, energizing and directing it.

Usually I remain quiet and just observe, allowing the faculty  I created to make recommendations or the form I created to carry out an action.

But what is common to everything that happens in my life – whether I say it was my mind or ego or heart that did it – is that “I” am around, observing and directing the show. “I” am reaching the conclusions and making the decisions.

When I say “No,” we call it me having a bad mood or being down, etc.  No, that is the “I” directing the show.

Or, another classic, we say “You made me angry.” No, “you” didn’t. It’s always the “I.”

When I utter a decision in a fit of anger, we say that it’s my vasana (or the bottle) talking. No, it’s the “I” talking, having identified with and seeing the world through the filter of that vasana.

Whatever filter it chooses to look at the world through, it’s still the “I” that reaches a conclusion and decides to act. (1)

We tend to remove the “I” from the equation in favor of the body-mind complex. The latter may carry out the wishes of the “I,” but that doesn’t change things.

It always has been, always is, and always will be “I” who decides to act, whoever or whatever form carries out the action. Upon this fact is personal responsibility based.

If what I’ve said is the truth, all other things being equal, we should experience a feeling of relief and release upon reading it.  (2) If what I’ve said is not the truth or takes us further from it, we should experience either no release or further confusion and frustration.


(1) The “I” could also dismiss the vasana but it chooses not to.

(2) Because the truth will set us free.

The Meaning of Sahaja Samadhi – Steve Beckow

Samadhi Painting by Wei Ying-wu @ PaintingHere.


The Meaning of Sahaja Samadhi

Sri Ramana Maharshi

I want to write an essay on Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi, partly because I promised the Divine Mother I would, partly for my own clarity.  I’m going to need to get spiritually technical; specifically, to use some Sanskrit terms.

I’d advise anyone who doesn’t want to follow an intellectual conversation to skip this post and go on to the next.

Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi means the following. “Sahaja” means “natural.” “Nirvikalpa” means “without concepts.” “Samadhi” means “a state of fixed concentration, trance.”  Functionally it refers to a full and permanent heart opening, beyond the third-dimensional chakra system, as we shall see below. (1)

My knowledge of Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi for the most part comes from Sri Ramana Maharshi.

Sri Ramana was the first person I consciously heard say:

“The yogis say that the current rising up to sahasrara (brain) [Seventh Chakra] ends there. That experience is not complete. For jnana, they must come to the Heart. Hridayam (Heart) [actually heart aperture] is the alpha and omega.” (2)

In other words, seventh-chakra enlightenment or Brahmajnana is not enough. The cycle is not complete. We do not move from Third/Fourth Dimensionality to Fifth after attaining it.

This came as a great revelation to someone who grew up in a spiritual culture that considered seventh-chakra enlightenment as the end of this cycle and liberation or moksha. Now I was hearing that it was not.

For liberation to happen, the spiritual seeker must come again to the heart, which then permanently and fully opens in Sahaja Samadhi. Sri Ramana tells us:

“Great souls have declared the state of sahaja nirvikalpa (the natural state without concepts) alone to be the ultimate state. (3)

“The Sahaja Nirvikalpa is permanent and in it lies liberation from rebirths.” (4)

In kevalya nirvikalpa samadhi [seventh-chakra enlightenment] one is not free from vasanas [core issues] and does not, therefore, attain mukti. Only after the samskaras [impressions] have been destroyed [in Sahaja] can one attain salvation.” (5)

And how is Sahaja attained?  Sahaja is attained when the heart fully and permanently opens, as Sri Ramana discusses here:

“Heart is the seat of Jnanam 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 [hridayam], which is always shut.

“When the mind drops down in Kevalya Nirvikalpa [samadhi], it opens but shuts again after it. When Sahaja is attained it opens for good. (6)

As to the process, for that you’d have to read a spiritual master. I’d recommend Sri Ramana. Search on “Ramana” here:

Have I sought validation of these assertions? Yes, I have. I asked the Divine Mother about Sahaja being the culminating experience of Ascension and she agreed that it was and that the third-dimensiopnal chakra system was nor final or permanent.

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 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.

SB: It’s wonderful to have that confirmed. Thank you very much, Mother. (7)

So, for there to be complete clarity on the event that will signal we’re home, it’ll be experiencing a full and permanent heart opening. It’ll be being swept clean by a tsunami of love and immersed in an Ocean of Love, one that does not subside, forever and ever.

Look again at the photograph of Sri Ramana. It’ll be like that.


(1) The highest level of enlightenment in the third-dimensional chakra system occurs when the kundalini enters the Sahasrar or crown chakra. That enlightenment is called Brahmajnana or God-Realiation.

Sahaja is beyond the third-dimensional chakra system. The kundalini opens the heart completely, which is liberation from the Third/Fourth Dimension.

Spilling Ink on the Subject of the Heart – Steve Beckow

Awakening to Love painting by Radha Flora Cloud @ Fine Art America


Spilling Ink on the Subject of the Heart

Why do we suppose so much is written about the heart? Archangel Michael said to me on two occasions:

Archangel Michael: So there is forward thrust and movement into this higher-dimensional understanding of who you are. And, yes, it begins and it ends with – it always comes back to – the heart. You know this. (1)

Steve: The heart is another one of those things that is very difficult to define or understand or communicate.

Archangel Michael: But you will keep trying.

Steve: I know – I’ll write a thousand words – and keep trying.

AAM: Because it is the essential work. It is the essential message for humans to truly come to understand who they are. (2)

Yes, it truly is. And so I spill more ink on the subject of the heart, knowing that next week I’ll do it all again.

All we really seek in life is contained in the treasure chest that the heart is.

A treasure was buried in the field of the heart. What is it? Abide for any amount of time in any of the divine qualities of love and you know right away what the ultimate treasure of life is. Call it love; call it by the name of one of its divine forms – bliss, joy, peace, etc.

It turns out that all we ever wanted was to feel the flow of this tranforming love inside us, causing us to blossom.

Ordinary love is like Tang compared to the freshly-squeezed, real Florida orange juice of higher-dimensional love.

While we’re in the space of it, nothing else matters. We’re at the top of the pyramid of life. We’ve achieved all that’s worthwhile. Everything has contributed to this moment.

Experience higher-dimensional love for any length of time and all our questions disappear. All our concerns are swept away. All our fears vanish.

In the space we then occupy, it becomes immediately apparent why the Buddha would recommend giving up kingdoms in three dimensions for it.

Eckhart Tolle represented it as the gold in the box the beggar was sitting on (i.e., the heart).  (3) For sure it makes the world go round and it turns out to be all we’ve ever wanted.

Feel the best you can feel right now. Feel inspired. Feel blessed. Feel innocent. Now multiply that by 100 and you approach what higher-dimensional love feels like. You have to have had a breakthrough of some sort to feel it – a strong realization, transformational moment, peak experience, or heart opening.

There I go with another pot of ink.  But you can’t stop thinking about it or talking about it once you’ve spent some time in it.

Matthew Ward once said: “Your heart [is] the seat of the soul.” (4) Now that is an entirely different matter. I’ll spill a pot of ink on that one soon as well.

(3) A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap.

“I have nothing to give you,” said the stranger. Then he asked: “What’s that you are sitting on?”

“Nothing,” replied the beggar. “Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.”

“Ever looked inside?” asked the stranger.

“No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.”

“Have a look inside,” insisted the stranger.

The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold. (Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now. Downloaded from

Now or Never – Steve Beckow

faces 2 artist Aaron Paquette

Artist: Aaron Paquette


Now or Never

I continue to focus my attention on how I am with other people, especially in conflict.

I still spark and turn the other person into the enemy. I go out of relationship with them and break the connection over issues that arise.

Recently Fedex lost a parcel of mine and I could have used the occasion to blame and get abusive. And I didn’t. (I’m immensely proud of myself, by the way.)

There is marked improvement. But nowhere near where I need to be to carry out my later, post-Reval responsibilities on the blog and in humanitarian philanthropy.  I can’t afford to fall asleep during this precious time and not use it to prepare.

Among my noticings from observing myself, I can now see how fear underlies anger. I’m afraid of being criticized. So I make that into a fearsome weapon for those who use it and a dreadful fate for those against whom it’s used.

Then at some point I get mad at someone else, feel justified, and use the weapon on them. And so the cycle persists. Intergenerational transfer.  Which stops here, by the way.

As I said in an earlier article, the process of being triggered through to responding happens in a microsecond.

I have to be vigilant just to see it and very strong, very much in self-command not to resort to it. I have to stop resorting to that process. Without putting anything in its place. Just stop.

This is where the rubber meets the road in self-reconstruction. Yes, I’m taking apart the constructed self, the mask, the self-image I built up over decades.

But I’m also reparenting, reprogramming the Child in me who resorts to habitual behavior which is destructive. I’m getting the habitual behavior pattern to stop.

If you’re looking for a description of how a person can “change,” I’m giving it to you as we speak. This is change. This is what it looks like. This is the level at which a person has to go to – short of going through a life-threatening experience – to effectively make a change in our self-presentation – the who we present ourselves as being. Are we in integrity? Are we even close to being transparent? Or not?

A car outside my window plays rap music much louder than I’d like to hear. My ire mounts.

I get constant opportunities like this these days to ask myself: Am I going to potentially jeopardize my mission over this issue?  Am I going to risk bringing disrepute on the Company of Heaven by my actions? No, I’m not.

To have the space to approach things like with this degree of concentration, I have to bring all other calls on me to a standstill. I have to concentrate. There is no way I’ll be able to do this after the Reval. It’s now or never.

When is the Wounded Child in the Driver’s Seat? – Steve Beckow

face child female owl art by Lucy Campbell

Artist: Lucy Campbell


When is the Wounded Child in the Driver’s Seat?

My beloved brother Paul on the right

Whenever I feel guilt or shame or dismay, I can say with certainty that my Wounded Child is in the driver’s seat.

I can say this with certainty because of what I saw and felt in a meditation I did at Xenia Retreat Center on Sept. 18, 2018.

I saw the Self in the depths of my heart (1) and the feeling that totally took me over was that of being a pure and innocent individual.

We’re all pure underneath this overburden of guilt, shame, etc. It was clear to me in that moment that this purity reflected our being a spark of God.

I had arrived at one destination on the endless journey – our future and our past – and it was blameless.

Surely that says – among other things – that I, who was so much blamed in my early life, was here being given the knowledge that the being we’re unveiling by our efforts is in fact not reprehensible.

We used to call the reprehensible being we were the “deeper self.” Our “dark side.” We had very little knowledge of vasanas or core issues (3) back then.

In my experience at Xenia, I saw that the vasanas were only skin deep.

The me that was shaped by early-childhood events (4) – my personality, shall we say – is vasana-driven. It’s a reaction machine, on autopilot, following instructions that were out-of-date decades ago.

I must look crazy when my vasana is triggered and off I go, acting out the generational pattern.

Gosh, it takes a lot of digging (self-observation) to get below the vasanas in everyday life rather than just in a quiet state of meditation.


(1) Here’s a description of that experience:

“At Xenia Retreat Center, I dove deeply into my heart, in meditation, to find out what the origin was of the feeling of dismay I was experiencing. I thought I’d get to the original incident and experience it through to completion. Instead I went way past the level of the vasanas and kept on going.

“I finally reached what resembled a tunnel and at the end of it was the Light of the Self. And in the presence of the Self I felt innocent and pure.

“I had penetrated through the hridayam, the heart aperture, into the open heart and down, down, down to “the seat of the soul.” So I can vouch for the fact that the seat of the soul is in the heart. That no longer sounds like a far-fetched notion to me, but something I’ve experienced and realized.”  (“The Heart is ‘the Seat of the Soul’,” December 17, 2018, at )

I thought of the depths of my heart as “the seat of the Soul.” On the Xenia experience, see “Original Innocence,” Sept. 21, 2018, at

“I Now Know How the Play Ends,” Sept. 22, 2018, at

“Archangel Michael Explains What Happened at Xenia,” Sept. 22, 2018, at

I had this conversation with Archangel Michael about the Xenia experience. He said things about enlightenment that I wasn’t aware of, after ten years of reading the works of enlightened masters:

Steve: Was the sight of the self at the Xenia retreat a fourth-chakra event?

Archangel Michael: Yes, it was.

Steve: So it’s possible to have two fourth-chakra events or maybe even more possibly?

AAM: It is possible to have multiple chakra events throughout your lifetimes, sweet one. Again, what you are thinking of is a limitation. Something is activated or not activated. Think in terms of open, open, open, open, bigger, bigger, bigger. So yes, you might have several events. You should have several events! (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, June 12, 2019.)

(4) On one occasion, when I was yelled at from inches away from my face, I shattered into a million pieces. It took a little more than fifty years to become whole again, so to speak. Once I knew I was dissociated, I used to call myself the “Humpty Dumpty Man.”

What We Call Ascension – Steve Beckow

Art by Carlos Quevedo via art motion M Alina


What We Call Ascension

My original assignment was to go up with everyone else, passing from Ascension milestone to Ascension milestone – and write about it.

I regard what I write as an Ascension ethnography, warts and all, to be read by other civilizations planning their own Ascensions. As Sanat suggested back in 2011:

“What takes place here, of course, has tremendous impact throughout.” (1)

What have I done so far in my own journey and writings about it?

I’ve spent decades finding out how to rid myself of the causes of upset. Why am I not happy? Why is there so much turmoil in my life? Why do my relationships always end?

Finally, when I identified vasanas or core issues as the culprit, I spent decades completing – or trying to complete – some of my mine.

One spiritual experience after another happened in parallel. (2) I incorporated all the new knowledge learned from them – for instance of the nature of love from the heart opening and knowledge of my inherent innocence and purity from the Xenia experience.

I now knew increasing amounts about higher-dimensional consciousness – particularly love – and it was changing my views on many things. Gradually that knowledge combined with that of eradicating vasanas.

At this point the call of service in the outside world put a new perspective on all of this. Now I was preparing to  bring what I learned into the world of finance. It was time to apply what I’d found and fill in any gaps that could be identified.

That is leaving out all the things I’ll need to learn in entering an altogether-new field – finance.

During all of this there’s been a progressive disclosure to me from Michael and the Arcturians about what my mission is and what I can expect to draw upon to help me accomplish it.

My confidence is growing as I see Michael perform one miracle after another backstage. I find that I can leave certain operations to him, like almost everything financial in my life.

And I know some things are happening internally that will greatly benefit me. But just the same, I’ve agreed to board the train last so I’m not looking for enlightenment. That’s not to say I don’t encourage you to. (3)

As the vasanas lift, I find everything I need in the space thus created. Love arises; so does bliss, peace, happiness. When I feel those divine states, I want nothing else. Being in those states represents the end of a long climb and a pinnacle of experience (there are always more pinnacles).

Yes, I know the experience of those states will deepen and deepen. But existing in these states at the level I’m pointing at would still be having left the wheel of birth and death and having won mukti or liberation. That is a milestone and what we call “Ascension.”


(1) Sanat Kumara in a personal reading with Steve Beckow et al through Linda Dillon, Dec. 7, 2011.

(2)  Experiences of the space of mastery and abundance, anchoring myself to the world before open hostility erupted in my family (before age seven), a heart opening, the truncated sight of the Self at Xenia, truncated Brahmajnana, a truncated seventh-dimensional experience of the oversoul, the sight of my Higher Self as a knight on horseback, etc.  I certainly cannot complain about the spiritual wealth the Company of Heaven have provided me with.

(3) Ascension is equal to an advanced state of enlightenment called Sahaja Samadhi, which is a full and permanent heart opening.  Sahaja signifies our entry into the Fifth or higher dimension, which the Buddha called the end of the wheel of birth and death.

Blue Angel Update 2 – Steve Beckow

City of Angels painting by Bernadette Wulf


Blue Angel Update 2

Blue Angel will be a member of one of the delegations, meeting the galactics at some early point in time.

I got the impression that I had passed another marker.

I was asking rather than assuming, being respectful of the differences between us, and being aware that I bring a lot of human vibrational ‘garbage’ that can drain the Galactics’ energy.

The elder turned to me and signalled me to lift my arms, into a surrender position with my palms facing forward. He put his palms to mine and I felt the new energy flow through my physical body, especially down my legs.

We then entered a room, where I assumed there were only male Galactics, but I couldn’t make anyone out clearly. As I wondered where the women were, a woman wearing robes and a turban emerged from nowhere, with gleaming eyes that shone with the warmest welcome.

Then the vision ended. I am struck by how similar this process seems to be to Genii Townsend’s visits to the Light City in Sedona.

Several days later, I’m still aware of this new feeling of light and spaciousness within that I have never had before.

Layer Upon Layer of Constructed Self – Steve Beckow

true friendship picture quote


Layer Upon Layer of Constructed Self

A friend called me the other day on not acting very compassionately. And she was right.

There is a side of me that’s superficial, uncaring, unconcerned. I’m incredibly shallow about the world and I actually don’t know what to do about it.

Seeing how shallow I am brings up fresh, new levels of constructed self and a whole new raft of vasanas.

Of course, only my patterned behavior will be noticeable to other people. They won’t feel my feelings or think my thoughts. But they may intuit them.

The pattern of not caring has to stop.

And the interests that support this kind of coping mechanism or survival strategy will have to be raised to aware

The other day, when I considered the extent of the ground to be covered to emerge from the constructed self and just be the natural Self that I already know I am, I nearly felt like giving up.

But if I did, many others might as well, I thought. We need just the opposite so on we go.

To mastery of the self, the ego. To restoration of full confidence and competence, restored deficits and disabilities, ready to serve.

Krishnamurti said over and over that knowledge of the ways of the self, the ego, the constructed self, whatever you want to call it is what leads to liberation. I’m certainly getting to see mine.

Jesus added that the truth will set you free. Revealing the truth of the upset is the basis of my own method of  purification of the vasanas. (1)

At some point, completing the vasanas and releasing them should get easier. Perhaps they can be eradicated for society….

Recoil from Perceived Criticism – Steve Beckow

heart rainbow colours - art by Keith Allen Kay at Quantum Fractal Energy Mandala - signed artist

Artist: Keith Allen Kay at Quantum Fractal Energy Mandala


Recoil from Perceived Criticism

I notice that, when my personality, my constructed self is in the driver’s seat, any action that goes wrong stands as an indictment of my whole personality – so conditioned have I become to criticism.

Let me exaggerate a bit to make my point. This is the emotional truth for me, not the actual truth – how it seems or feels.

Any credible allegation that something has been screwed up, a ball has been dropped, etc., causes me to go into a tailspin, internally.

We say that a person in my position has been “triggered.”

And I react by going into attack mode. I’m fully mobilized without knowing what hit me.

It’s both the vasana and the conditioned pattern of behavior that go off.

The vasana is like a crew member ringing the alarm bell on a ship. All hands on deck! But it’s internal to the person.

The behavior pattern is external. The crew is now projecting the vasana externally, firing on other people, causing harm.

I know of no other valid approach to patterns than experiencing the vasana through to completion while not acting on the pattern born of the vasana.

Experiencing the vasana through to completion is a wholesome action; refraining from acting on it is also a wholesome action so we’ve satisfied the Buddha’s precept. (1)

Meanwhile I have my susceptibility to criticism to deal with. I know its origins. I don’t have to trace it back.

Here’s the thing. Someone being critical of another breaks the bond of connection, even if slightly. When my Dad criticized me, he took his love from me. For whatever reason. It really doesn’t matter.

He had an uncivil tongue. He’d dig the knife in so deeply (although Michael says I was a sensitive child) that I still cringe when criticized by another.

This family was mired in intergenerational transfer. That’s the process of passing a vasana along from parent to child, repeatedly.  The elder males seem to revel in lording it over their wives and children.

I cited the Divine Mother recently on dictators. Forgive me if I cite it again here because it describes some of my relatives (not all by any means).

“It is painful for a being that seeks power for themselves or power over another, whether it is a parent over a child, a husband over a wife, a man over an army. It matters not.

“The yearning [for], the exercise of control never gives joy. The pain simply grows. And so the actions become more grotesque, larger, until the breakdown is and has [been] and will be occurring.” (2)

A long and slippery slope.

Meanwhile, there’s no one else who can heal my wounds than I. And it’s no one else’s responsibility to do it either.

I’ve forgiven my Dad for passing this way of being along from his father. I probably need to forgive the family line as well, going back to the origin of the pattern.

Seeing these things does help me let go of them. I invoke Sanat Kumara and the Law of Elimination to take away whatever residue of resentment is left.

I feel a sense of peace. I have no idea how lasting it’ll be. But it feels better than the recoil from perceived criticism.

How I See Myself – Steve Beckow

Angel of The Presence ~ Aeoliah’s Visionary Art


How I See Myself

From observing myself, I’m becoming convinced that the most important factor in how I feel, how my health is generally, and how I feel about myself is how I see myself.

I’ve sifted through everything – thoughts, feelings, vasanas, patterns, and interests – and what I see as the prime  architect (1) of every action is just that – how I see myself and what I do with what I think I see.

If I see myself as a “lazy no-good good-for-nothing,” then my whole life is skewed thereby.

If I see myself as pure and innocent, as we all are at essence, then my life takes a different direction.

In intergenerational transfer, we imbibe some of the attitudes of our parents. I feared that my parenting attitudes would all come,holus bolus, from my Dad and so I didn’t want to be a father.

All of this was happening way below conscious awareness but the battle raged on between me and my Dad for decades.  Always I was proving him wrong: “I am not a lazy, no-good good-for-nothing.”

Many of our issues – vasanas, patterns, and even interests – are also subject to intergenerational transfer.

Then there’s the slice that I created newly. My vasanas, mypatterns, my interests. I start owning it. Reparenting is my latest strategy to ease myself out of those.

I’ve been working away at that, again, for decades.

But all of these are so many news stories of a life. Read all about it. Steve still battling with his Dad. Blames all on Father.

We all know that news stories change every day. If we want to stop the stream of them, we need to look behind them and find the one who is pulling the strings, the puppet master, the creator of the stories.

We use the word “ego” to refer to a cluster of things. I’m going to choose a different way of referring to it, calling it a quality of mind – the survival instinct of a mind convinced that it is only material, subject to death, alone in a competitive, cut-throat world, etc. As the Buddhists do, let me name it “worried” mind.

My worried mind thrives on conflict because it sees itself coming out on top. This is its coping mechanism or survival strategy.

It has no hesitation in criticizing me – whether the last generation did so or not is not a consideration.  It does so to spur me to action.

It sees things from a Social-Darwinist perspective: Life is a struggle for existence in which only the fittest survive. Wealth betokens fitness.

It also sees them from an Empirical-Materialist perspective: Life is only what we see, hear, touch, taste, etc. If we cannot detect life in this way, what we’re conceiving doesn’t exist. So goodbye archangels, galactics, and the Internet. (2)

In this case, the news story – the issue – is me blaming Dad for all my ills. The next moment it may be my poor performance in this area over here. The puppet master pulls one string after another and sees what develops.

It engages in a self-serving dance aimed at ensuring its own survival in a competitive and worrisome world.  What it gets from the dance is reassurance of its own survival: someone is protecting me; I have enough money to get by; I’ve come out on top, etc.

It’s that puppet master that we need to notice. Not in a critical way. (Been there. Done that.)

But in a loving way. It has, after all, helped keep us alive all these years.

Remember the scene in Men in Black, where the man’s face was removed by the coroner, revealing a tiny spaceman inside, just about dead, manipulating all the little levers in the head?

Well, that’s about the situation with the worried mind. Whether it comes early or late, someday we realize all the wasted energy we poured into worrying. And we just let it go. Que sera sera. What will be will be. Just like the little spaceman.

It’s all mythic anyways. I’m not going to die when this body falls away. Give me a break. (3)

This world is not run on competition. That’s what’s brought us to the brink of destruction – mutual,  assured, and mad.

It’s run on cooperation.

On and on the myths go, associated with Social Darwinism and Empirical Materialism.

The puppet master can now step down, with a grand round of applause for a job well done, keeping me alive all these years.

Thank you. You’re on vacation. Heaven knows when I might need you again. When judgment has transformed into discernment? (4)


(1) Not prime motivator – that’s how we feel.

(2) A galactic invention, as is the computer you’re reading this on.

(3) See New Maps of Heaven at

(4) Judgement is biased, subjective; discernment is neutral, objective. Judgment is based on values; discernment is based on facts.  (This sounds like a strange reversal of Empirical Materialism.)

Judgment is associated with the worrying mind, trying to ensure its own survival by judging others. It is hierarchical and in service to self.

Discernment is based on a soul-level love of fairness and justice and a wish to see it extend throughout the world, in service to others, the collective.

Discerning discussion is in Perro: It’s neutral, shorn of attachment to any interest save establishing the truth.

Discerning decision-making arises out of calm reflection after a review of all the documentary and testimonial facts. It’s aim is to make a compassionate ruling arising out of reflection on the credibly-established facts.

That’s My Target – Steve Beckow

That’s My Target

The Arcturians asked us to master every thought and feeling.

I’d like to talk about mastering feelings for a moment.

I watch myself and I see myself talking about things in a way that reflects how I feel – gloomy, depressed, elevated, happy.  I “come from” the context of the feeling I’m presently experiencing.

If I feel gloomy, I might be hard to rouse when you’re talking about something happy. If I feel happy, I might be hard to shut up.

But I speak out of the context of the feeling I’m going through at that moment – most times.

All the time I’m doing this, I’m unaware I’m doing it. And sometimes I’m aware and hoping no one notices – when everyone does.

Is this not the wicked web we weave when first we practice to deceive? In the growth movement, we just owned it and got off it or continued on with awareness. It very soon disappears as a problem in an atmosphere of transparency.

I don’t want to add suppression to unconsciousness.

Again it calls on me to reparent myself – to get into, underneath, and over top of unproductive feelings and give myself better directions.  Mastering my feelings is a job for my Adult.

If I’m to do the job(s) I’m asked to do, I feel the need not to be subject to the sway of negative feelings (positive feelings don’t present a problem).

Rewiring myself, reprogramming myself – because habitual behavior won’t disappear; we just need to be wise in what we choose to make a habit – reparenting myself seems the best way to find my balance point, my centerpoint in  responding to my feelings.

In that center resides tranquillity. That’s my target.

Three Windows into Vasanas – Steve Beckow

Study – by Trungbui42 @ DeviantArt


Three Windows into Vasanas

I’d like to post three discussions which are very relevant to anyone studying or processing core issues or vasanas.

They tell us why it works to process them, how persistent vasanas are, and why there is no need to process beneficial vasanas.

Why should we process our vasanas?

Steve: The work we do in completing our old business and upsets, that makes for a smooth transition? Is that right?

Archangel Michael: Yes, it does. Think of it in terms of when a baby, a human baby is birthed, sometimes it is a very easy delivery, sometimes it is 30 hours of labor. Sometimes the mother decides to birth in the fields; sometimes she births in the ocean. Sometimes she goes to a beautiful room; other times she goes to an operating room and has a C-section. But the birthing still occurs. So this is what happens.

It is a feeling of complete and utter surrender and bliss. It is a sensation — physical, mental, emotional, spiritual — of union. So there is a moment where you feel, oh, I have died. Because that is the sense of such release and reconnection. But of course you are not dying. Quite the contrary. Now, in much of your history or literature — and I do include sacred books in that — ascension is also related to a keeping of some kind of physicality and form. Now, some will choose not to do that, and that is fine. But that is a choice.

But let us talk about you. Let us use you as an example. Because you have done your very deep work, and your heart is committed to this path for many, many years. There will be that sense of blissful connection that you have experienced a couple of times, but it will be even more so.

The sense will be that you are flying upward. It is a physical sensation of movement. And a remembering, or a sensation of remembering, that you have wings, or the ability to fly. (“Archangel Michael on NESARA, Opposing the Cabal, and Ascension – Oct. 1, 2011 – Part 2/3,” at

Vasanas don’t simply disappear of their own volition; we need to “clean them up.”

Archangel Michael: The reason why I speak of this is that many of you – and you, beloved, included – look at situations and you say, “Well, how can it get much worse?” And that is because you, and many, come from a place of love and purity of intent. But you also know that everything that has need to be eliminated, everything that has need to be relinquished, everything that needs to be healed in this cesspool that we call “chaos” has need to come to the surface.

Otherwise – and this has happened many, many times in human history – what happens is there is a belief, there is a healing, an accommodation, a remedy, and then the human collective tends to think, “Okay, now it is cleaned up, now it is healed, now it is done.” But the core – the core issues – of the collective, and of course of the individuals, has not been addressed, and therefore it simply settles in and it festers.

In this part of the infinite, eternal unfoldment of our Mother’s Plan, it all has need to be surfaced so that this subtle and actual festering, until it again boils over, cannot happen. It is simply, in your time and in the Mother’s time, the juncture at which this has to be healed. So it continues to rise to the surface.

You see, those who are even deeply engaged in, shall we say, dark deeds, erroneous behaviour, false beliefs or paradigms which are all components of the chaos – very often, what has happened is that the chaos doesn’t bother them, and they thrive upon it. But the level of chaos that has come to the surface, that is being exposed in every quadrant of the planet – in every society, in every institutional structure, in every political and financial structure – it’s exhausting!

So not only is it exhausting because of the tumultuous nature, the sullied nature, of the energy that is being brought to the surface. It is also beginning – in fact, very significantly – exhausting those who have been engaged in the errant or aberrant behaviours. And that is a significant improvement. It is a significant departure.

It is anticipated – and what you would even think of as natural – that those that are of a higher vibration, those that are carrying the love and the purity in their hearts, those who are of the lightworker and loveholder community – of course, when they look at it, it is exhausting to them. That is to be expected. In many ways, it is as if, as lightworkers, you have been sitting on the edge of a volcanic waste dump for years. Of course, it is exhausting!

But it is important that those who you think of as having been neutral, and those who have actually been the perpetrators of violence – because it is all of violence – are also becoming fed up, exhausted, overwhelmed. It is no longer simply a foray into the darkness and then a retreat to the comfort of home. This is exactly what has need to transpire.

It cannot be simply the lightbearers who are holding the light, and shining the light, and beaming the light, and being the light – it cannot simply be them doing all the heavy lifting for the entire planet to go forward.

Now, we are not saying that those recalcitrants will fully embrace the light. Even those who have been in strict containment continue to argue and fight! However, when they reach the point of exhaustion where they are fed up, that is victory – and that, my beloved friend, my brother, is what is at hand!

And you are being assisted not only by the Mother’s legions but by your Star Family, increasingly apparent and present – and will be very clearly present upon the planet very quickly – not simply as boots on the ground but in the full splendour of a delegation. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with EBSS through Linda Dillon, January 2019, at

Finally, Ramana Maharshi once said:

In Yoga Vasistha two classes of vasanas are distinguished: those of enjoyment and those of bondage. The former remain even after Mukti (1) is attained, but the latter are destroyed by it. Attachment is the cause of binding vasanas, but enjoyment without attachment does not bind and continues even in Sahaja [that is, after Ascension].” (2)

I too have noticed that all that’s needed to create space is to process the vasanas that contribute to our denseness and gloom; the vasanas that contribute to our upliftment and happiness present no problem and can be left alone.

Those vasanas that tend towards these divine states are in line with the Divine Plan; their role is to lift us up closer and closer to the Godhead and final reunification.

It’s only the ones that drag us down that we need to get to the bottom of, re-experience completely, and let go of.


(1) Mukti is liberation from birth and death, something that occurs after entry into the Fifth Dimension. Hence Ascension is liberation or mukti.

(2) Ramana Maharshi in S.S. Cohen, Guru Ramana. Memories and Notes. 6th edition. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanasramam, 1993, 89.

Ascension through Terrestrial Eyes – Steve Beckow

Lord Brahma by Manjari Sharma @ Artspace


Ascension through Terrestrial Eyes

If we were to look at Ascension with terrestrial eyes, where would we find discussions of it?

Well, all discussions in the Bible of salvation, resurrection, being made a pillar in the temple and going no more out, etc., are discussions of Ascension.

We are saved (salvation) from needing to be reborn and die again; there is none of that on the Fifth Dimension and higher.

We’re resurrected (resurrection) from this realm of birth and death, this old Third Dimension, and raised to a higher dimension, beyond death.

We need no more leave the temple of our everyday, higher-dimensional life and enter into the realm of death and destruction. We’ve ascended to a realm in which one is drowned in love and bliss, where harm and destruction are forgotten and non-existent.

Arriving at this place in consciousness is such a radical break with our everyday experience that I’m tempted to draw a line here and say, a new chapter will have opened up for us.

Ramakrishna used to advise us to run into the Lake of Bliss, jump into it, fall into it. Just get into the Lake.

Yes, any entry into higher dimensionality, as far as I’m aware, is as good as any other. Once in – no matter the motivation, accidental visitor or a lifelong seeker – the realization of higher dimensionality is the same.

The strength of the experience, I believe, is what differs between a temporary and a permanent heart opening.

The task at hand is to get ourselves into that Lake of Bliss, that Ocean of Love that the Mother keeps signalling us that she is. Whenever she says, “I am Maré,” she’s hinting at being the “Ocean” of Love. (Maré in Latin = Ocean.)

I’d say this is a foolproof test of whether you’ve reached the end of Third/Fourth Dimensionality: Are you drowned in an Ocean of Love and are you there fully and permanently? If yes, then you sound like you ascended.

If not, I’ll trade you seats. You’re still closer to the fire than me.

Unlike all previous levels of enlightenment, Ascension, or Sahaja Samadhi as it was known to Sri Ramana, is not connected to the kundalini reaching one of the chakras. It’s beyond the seven-chakra system of the Third Dimension.

Realization evidently starts and ends with a heart opening. Entry into spiritual life (stream-entering, Buddh.; spiritual awakening, Hind.) attends a fourth-chakra heart opening, which quickly closes.

But Ascension sees the spiritual heart – or more accurately, the hridayam or heart aperture – open fully, forever. No more slipping back. No more disappearing experiences.

Never again must one be reborn into the world of matter. This is moksha, mukti, liberation.

One leaves the wheel of birth and death behind, said a man who had, in my opinion, ascended while alive: The Buddha. (1)

Ascension was known to Christians, Hindus, and Buddhists and probably many other spiritual traditions.

While the sages did not discuss dimensionality, they had ways of indicating it, pointing at it. To be welcomed into the temple and go no more out is one way of talking about ascending to the Fifth Dimension.


(1) Arahantship, it seems to me, betokens seventh-chakra enlightenment. Buddhahood betokens a full and permanent heart opening, Ascension, beyond the chakra system.
