 Collectively I Refer to It as “I”

Everything I can control from my mental laptop, complete with radar, heat sensors, attitude detectors, intuition, etc., is part of that “field of awareness.” Collectively I refer to it as “I.”

Keep in mind that I’ve been outside my body in 1977 so I know my body is operated by a spirit, which, like everything else associated with me, I crudely designate as “I.” So I, the perennial observer, have more than one “I,” just as we have more than one set of clothes.

This spirit that I am literally looks out through these eyes. I watched myself transition from “me” inside my body to “me” outside. It took less than a second, as if I was sucked into position.

Like Jim Carrey in The Mask, once I had the body mask on I couldn’t get it off.

So here “I” am, walking around in a body and wanting to live a good life. What’s most important, now that we’ve gotten the mechanics out of the way?

The way I feel. The way I feel may not determine what I say, but it sure determines how I say it. So much of my day is spent responding to the way I feel, doing something to improve it or enjoy it. Or run from feelings that I don’t like. (1)

* * *

Earlier in the day, I heard in my inner ear: “You can’t become a knower of God until you become a knower of the Self.” This of course is an ancient proverb, common to a number of religions.

Meister Eckhart best captures the sense of us as Babushka dolls – bodies, spirit, soul, God:

“There is a spirit in the soul, untouched by time and flesh, flowing from the Spirit, remaining in the Spirit, itself wholly spiritual.

“In this principle is God, ever verdant, ever flowering in all the joy and glory of His actual Self. Sometimes I have called this principle the Tabernacle of the soul, sometimes a spiritual Light, anon I say it is a Spark.

“But now I say that it is more exalted over this and that than the heavens are exalted above the earth. … It is free of all names and void of all forms. It is one and simple, and no man can in any wise behold it.” (2)

No one can any wise behold the Father perhaps, but not the Self.

We have to burrow down, with our loving awareness, through all these layers of manifested consciousness to find it.

All of that which I described earlier – the environment, the field of awareness, the “I”  – is at its center what we’re looking for (Self, God) and at its peripheries (self), not at all what we’re looking for.

At the periphery, all is hubbub. The Self is refined. You can’t hear it or see it in the midst of chaos – well, not usually, anyways.

We have to journey past those surface layers of the busy “self” to know “the Self.” And then, I hypothesize, we have to burrow into that same Self, in the heart, in the center, to know God.

That’s my hypothesis, having travelled only a small distance on this route this lifetime. That portal is the next place to go for me.

Progressively-deeper Self-Disclosure, Self-Revelation. It’s that way with love as well: We go into deeper and deeper experiences of love.

The heart is in the center. The Self resides in the seat of the soul, the very deepest reach of the heart – also in the center.  We’re always directed (A) inwards and (B) into the center.

My next explorations will be to see if the Self is a portal.  (3)

I’d observe in passing that, for the ordinary, normal, average person (if there is one among this generation), consideration be paid to how to improve the emotional state. That seems to bring the biggest dividends.

But for the flat-out spiritual seeker, which I’m not this lifetime (and often wish I were), I highly recommend burrowing straight into the heart, into the center, and never stopping.

Everything I’ve seen about the discovery of the Self indicates movement from gross to subtle, from busy to still, from loud to silent, from worry to relief, from sorrow to joy. Every time we make that transition from one state to the other, I like to think we’re creating a new neural pathway in the journey to awaken the God within.

An Incredibly Big Shift in the Human Experience? – Steve Beckow

angel gold orange wings

* * * *

An Incredibly Big Shift in the Human Experience?

Most lightworkers are angels. As such they hail from the Transcendental.

The Transcendental exists above the twelve dimensions, beyond human experience.

Even if they have a favorite dimension to hang out in when mingling with the human population in the twelve dimensions, they still live in the Transcendental.

Michael was telling me in my last reading that what is for us a lifetime is for them an in-breath.

Humans live in the Transcendental once they’ve finished their human experience. Ashtar once acknowledged to me that he did:

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

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

A: That is correct. (1)

Those of Sri Ramakrishna’s disciples he called evergreens were to be found – and were seen – in the Transcendental.

I once interviewed a well-known spiritual source, which included questions about the Transcendental. Before the show aired, they removed the part on the Transcendental. It isn’t a subject that many spiritual sources willingly discuss. Why I could only speculate.

We tend to think of this earthly plane, this physical plane or Third Dimension as the only “material” plane. But in fact all twelve dimensions are material planes. Only the Transcendental is not.

We tend to think of sixth-or seventh-chakra enlightenment as entering the Transcendental. In fact it isn’t even exiting the Third Dimension. We have nine more dimensions to go.

I remember thinking to myself that I had no idea what was seen in seventh-chakra enlightenment because what was seen was Transcendental.  Five dimensions later we’re just looking out upon the real Transcendental.

I don’t think people appreciate at least one of the changes in the way the world is and will be. It has always been that people in the astral world could not travel upwards save with special protection. But now, once ascended, we’ll be free to travel to all dimensions. If that is so, it’s an incredibly big shift in the human experience.

A Walk Down … Uhhh, Where Did Memory Lane Go? – Steve Beckow

Forget-me-not Flowers

* * *

A Walk Down … Uhhh, Where Did Memory Lane Go?

How many people are having memory problems? Raise your hands?

Everyone? Well, then you may be interested in hearing Archangel Michael address mine.

My memory has gotten so bad that I can forget what I was saying in the middle of a sentence, in the course of walking into the kitchen to get something, in the middle of shopping (what did I come here to get?).

How am I to do an interview or be interviewed? There’s no way I can.

Everyone I’ve spoken to is also having memory issues.

My difficulties have been going on since before 2012.  At last I had a detailed discussion with Michael as to what is happening with me.

There may be some differences for you. But you can see both the kinds of memory problems that arise and what the Company of Heaven does about them in the case of lightworkers who need to have and rely on their memories.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Aug. 5, 2020. Thanks to Dana for our transcript.

Steve: I would like to discuss my memory problems in more detail than we usually do. What is behind them, Lord?

Archangel Michael: Well, it is not simply one thing. So we will get into the detail. Let us think of it in terms of three areas.

First of all, as I have said, you are an historian, ancient and current, (1) and there is a part of you that, while you love history in the biggest sense, is also sick and tired of history.

And there is also a part of you that thinks that this reflection, this rear-view mirror analysis of what has transpired is useless and meaningless.

Inside that, there is also part of you that doesn’t think that you particularly want to (and it is a quasi-decision point) that you would particularly want to be remembering everything that has transpired, whether it is 20 years ago or yesterday. So that is one area.

Now, biologically, there is also some, hmmm, shall we say, short-circuiting? Now understand your electrical neural pathways have been enormously increased over the past several years.

But those neural pathways are not always fully activated or completely working.

Now think of it in this way, when there is a fetus, an infant, what is happening is of course that those electrical systems, those neural pathways, the brain function is in development in utero.

What has been happening with you, and with many, is that the reconstruction of those electrical impulses (because that is what memory is; it is keying into current and past events, memories, feelings, emotions) is still in the upgrade process. So there is also biological functioning going on.

The other thing that is going on is that there is some residue of what you would think of as plaque in some of those areas (this is still the biological area) that has gathered in various cavities or crevices of your hemispheres and those are also being cleaned out. (2)

Now what is also happening biologically is that when some of those cleanouts are happening, literally memory is being ejected because it is being freshened up. So think of it as peeling away dead plaque or dead skin. There will be new skin underneath but the memory of that scab is gone. That is some of the biological that is happening.

Then there is what we would call electrical currents. Now, I am not, let me be very clear, suggesting that you attempt or try to turn down anything.

Steve: What does that mean, Lord? Do you mean to turn down an offer from somebody… Is that what you’re meaning?

AAM: No, I will explain. You have a million ideas and then some, running concurrently through your head.

Do not turn down anything! So sometimes you have thought… Well, maybe if I slowed it down a bit, maybe if I paid closer attention to the details of what the input… Because think of it as a constant stream. Think of a computer, a constant stream of input coming into your mechanism called the brain.

Do not turn it down because what you are doing in the upgrades is literally learning how to access what is important to you, what is meaningful to you and, yes, to the collective but we are talking about you at this moment.

And so you don’t want to start, consciously or unconsciously, editing the input into your brain. Now, your heart repair and oxygen flow [as a result of a triple bypass] is helping and has helped this biological issue enormously.

But part of you, as we have also said, and this is an agreement that we have, is that you have agreed and you are living very much in the moment.

One of the difficulties of humans is that they have a proclivity to either live in the past (and it can be recent past or ancient past) or to project themselves and live in the future.

It is a very curious malaise that most of the human race – yes, most of the human race – chooses not to live in the moment. So you are living in the moment. And you say, “Yes, Lord, I’m very willing to live in the moment but I would like to be able to access memories, recent events so that I don’t feel like a fool”

We hear you.

Steve:… Or lose my thought in the middle of a sentence or forget what I’m going into the kitchen for or, oh, it goes on and on… It’s crazy.

AAM: Now, think of the electric blue. Yes, the Porlana C that has been pouring into you. Let us increase it rather than decrease it. What we are doing and we are doing it even now as we are speaking, we are making all those synapses, all those electrical systems, all the upgrade a brilliant neon blue so that the entire brain, all hemispheres, functions will be more clearly firing.

Now the biggest impediment, and I know you, sweet one, the biggest impediment to this being fully effective is concern so let us do our job. You give me the worry and let us proceed with the completion of the upgrade. (3)

(3) So I’m not to worry about any of this. OK!!!!!

A Time of Purification? – Steve Beckow

* * *

A Time of Purification?

Triggers just seem to keep going off. I have to be supervigilant not to launch into extreme thoughts and behavior.

And not to then swing out onto the other extreme and super-protect myself from them, until the guardian again becomes the guard. (1)

How to stay in the middle and yet be strong, resolute, determined? This is truly Giacomond’s territory.

Part of my job is to give a running narrative, an ethnographic account of my passage through this territory and the others leading up to Ascension.

This stretch must be what Homer meant by picturing Odysseus strapped to the mast and letting him hear the siren’s song.

We’re all strapped to the mast and obliged to hear our siren’s song in this stretch of the passage. If you’re like me, our deeply-hidden issues and often-childish thinking are now arising to be seen and acknowledged.

Jesus tells us:

“There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.” (2)

I think we’re in the time of self-revelation he spoke of, a time of purification for us. The criminal shall be stopped (this seems to be happening) (3) and the seeker shall be purified?

This time isn’t what St. John of the Cross meant by a “dark night of the soul.” (4) But it’s what we commonly mean by it – a really bad time, a time to hunker down and get through.

There’s very little chance I’m (or anyone else is) going to emerge from this looking good and sounding right, either in our eyes or in others’ eyes.

The desire to look good and sound right is a large part of what keeps a vasana in place. We have to be willing to look bad and sound wrong if we’re to get through this one.

When I look at the vasana that I just went through – or rather am still going through – I can focus on how right I was or how far I take things.

I can be highly principled and yet not acknowledge that the real issue is how far I’m taking matters.

As a justification, in my mind, I’ve taken my Dad’s anger issues and hooked them up with my past-life military background.

I justify my willingness to speak my mind anywhere as being fearlessness. It isn’t.  Except in my own mind. It’s simply bad manners in the eyes of 99.99% of others.

This is me reparenting myself on the matter of my “straight-talking” (another justification). I find reparenting necessary to counter the habitual tendencies. Vigilance without paranoia.

I have this lingering sense that this is not the last core issue that I’ll face. (5)  I’m reminded of Isaiah:

3The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
“Prepare the way of the Lord;
Make straight in the desert
A highway for our God.
4Every valley shall be exalted
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough places smooth;
5The glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” (6)

I think this is that very process. Increase the energies lifting us up and whatever wants to hold us back rises to protest. But every crooked place shall be made straight, whatever we say or don’t say about it.

My words of comfort are of course that, relieved of the burden of our dark side, we’ll feel radically better, as I did in 2015, basking in love.

This release of old baggage is en-lighten-ment. We’re rising to a new level of vibration both by the effect of the rising energies and by our ability to drop our limiting burdens.

But first they must be exposed to at least our own gaze.

Bernadette Roberts gives a good, succinct description of it:

“In experience, the onset of this process (of God-realization) is the descent of the cloud of unknowing, which, because his former light has gone out and left him in darkness, the contemplative initially interprets as the divine gone into hiding.

“In modern terms, the descent of the cloud is actually the falling away of the ego-center, which leaves us looking into a dark hole, a void or empty space in ourselves. Without the veil of the ego-center, we do not recognize the divine; it is not as we thought if should be. …

“From here on we must feel our way in the dark, and the special eye that allows us to see in the dark opens up at this time.” (Bernadette Roberts, “The Path to No-Self” in Stephan Bodian, ed. Timeless Visions, Healing Voices. Freedom, CA: Crossing Press, 1991, 131.)

This stage being beyond Brahmajnana (seventh-chakra enlightenment), it has to be preliminary to Ascension.

However I don’t think this generation will be obliged to make such a difficult passage. All the rules have changed and our gradual ascent may make the rigors that St. John and Bernadette went through unnecessary.

(5) I already feel the next core issue in line is about shame, embarrassment, humiliation. It’s just waiting for me to be done with anger and fear.

(6) Isaiah 40:3-5.

The Fear of Death Dies – Steve Beckow

-lotus-blossoms-lotus-flowers ART

* * *

The Fear of Death Dies

There has to be an end to fear.

The soul in my 1987 vision did not end up in a bad place but a good place. (1) There had to have been an end to fear for that to have happened.

The chief fear is the fear of death. The truth is that we always, already are immortal. We don’t have to do anything to earn it. It isn’t out ahead of us. Our immortality has always been the case.

So there’s nothing to fear about “death.” (2)

The first time we have a lucid dream or out-of-body experience and see our body as separate from “us,” the ever-present observer, the fear of death dies.

That’s the head vampire.

Now we’re not afraid to risk, gamble, take a chance – not foolishly. Foolishness is born of fear.

But we still have endless fears beyond this chief culprit.

As far as I can see, they mostly center around … loss.

They’re mostly based on the idea that I need something to live and thrive and that that something exists separate from me, outside of me.

None of this is ultimately true (3) and believing it is is what leads to the life we lead. Just look around us. As within, so without. As far as I know, this world we’ve created is the way it is because we believe in death and loss.

They’re revealed ultimately as illusions. They produce a world of high drama.

In my understanding, the truth is that we don’t need anything more than what we already are – love/light – to live and thrive. Proving this has cost some saints their lives. It’s a truth that transcends matter, transcends physical death. It’s an “ultimate” truth.

Merely reading the words has about as much effect as having breakfast. Fills an emptiness for a half hour.

The truth of the statement must be experienced and then realized, just as I realized recently that the 1987 vision I had was in fact the Divine Plan. (4)

So here too, the truth of the fact that there is no death for the soul must also be realized for the fear of death to disappear. But it can happen in an instant (and usually does).

The soul itself does not actually and eternally exist. (5) In the end, it merges in the One again. (6)

Every spiritual commentator has said this: The less we’re attached to, the less we feel fear.  That doesn’t mean we have to live like ascetics. We’re not giving up possessions.  We’re giving up attachments to them.

Several times I’ve faced the fear of losing the site, with all its articles and libraries and databases. It actually took me far less time than I thought it would to feel fine about it.

And the last dissipate-fear technique may as well be from the Almanac of 1853: When you feel fear, stamp your foot. If that’s not enough to send fear flying, stamp it again saying “No!”

Fear is an emotion and it does not stay – unless we keep feeding it. We can alter that emotion; many movies are about the moment of change from fear to courage. (7)

My hypothesis here is that fear ends. Since we know that Ascension will end fear forever, I think mine a pretty safe bet. I’m only advocating ending fear now, before Ascension.

Footnotes

(1) The manner of dying, perhaps. But even there we have instances of afterlife communicatoes telling us about spirit helpers that remove them from their bodies just before two cars collide, etc.

(2)  I watched an individual soul go from God to God in a sacred arc and spiritual spiral. For an account of that vision, see “The Purpose of Life is Enlightenment – Ch. 13 – Epilogue,” August 13, 2011, at https://goldenageofgaia.com/2011/08/13/the-purpose-of-life-is-enlightenment-ch-13-epilogue/

(3) It’s relatively true but not absolutely true. Breatharians demonstrate that we don’t need to eat food. The world around us has been built out of the thought energy of our beliefs. If we believe in death and loss, our beliefs will be mirrored in our surroundings.

(4) See “The Vision WAS the Divine Plan for Life,” 

(5) St. Paul describes the last moment of individuality of the person before it merges with God again:

“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.

“… And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son [Self, Christ, Atman] also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” (St. Paul in I Corinthians 15:24 and 28.)

The drop returns to the Ocean.

(6) The Company of Heaven call this “coming Home” and “the Third Octave.” Conventional wisdom is that one does not return from mergence. But the CoH says, no, we re-emerge whenever there’s a need.

(7) Usually a penny drops. But we can also hasten it by stamping our foot.

The Strongest of the Strong – Steve Beckow

Archangel Faith by Lily Moses - angel

Archangel Faith ~ Artist Lily Moses

* * *

The Strongest of the Strong

Time for a change, a walk in the park, so to speak.

There are many classic paths to enlightenment.

I’d like to divide them into two general types: (1) Those that involve going inward and (2) those that involve going outward.

Those that involve going inward include meditation proper, the awareness path (my chosen path), Zen, etc.

Those that involve going outward include bhakti yoga or devotion and karma yoga or service.

Devotion involves loving the Divine and getting immersed or lost in it so that separation ends. Karma yoga usually means serving the Divine and remaining present to the service.

However, there are no firm boundaries. Karma yogis can get lost in bliss and bhaktas can remain present to service.

The Company of Heaven reminds us that lightworkers have come at this present time to build  Nova Earth, from the ground up. (2)

Lightholders have agreed to enter into enlightenment, which is itself service, different from what lightworkers have signed on for but service notwithstanding.

If I take myself as an example of a servant, I’ve said for myself that heaven can wait. I don’t have to wail and moan about it. I know that heaven – the early Christian name for the Fifth Dimension, the place of “Salvation” – is there for me (and you) when my contract is done so there’s no sense of urgency.

Coming back to worldly matters, we’ll have help with what we do. This current Reval is not the only means by which abundance will be released to the planet. (3)

Apparently, those who prove to have integrity, compassion, and perseverance will receive greater responsibilities related to redistributing that wealth. (4)

They’ll have the opportunity of being part of bringing the starving millions of the planet out of want and neglect, of giving masses of people income security, healthcare benefits, educational access, old-age security, etc.

But the real point I want to make here is that, if you choose the path of service – and you don’t have to; you can rechoose at any moment – then it sets in motion another train of events regarding enlightenment.

The Divine Mother and your archangel will approach your enlightenment with your service agreement in mind.  How it manifests, the degree to which you feel bliss, when it occurs are all up to them and I assert that they will take your service requirements into consideration.

My own example is educational. I’ve had seventh-dimensional and seventh-chakra spiritual experiences but I don’t consider myself enlightened.

Why not? Because the experiences were truncated in order to (A) allow me to remain in sync with my readers, as per my service contract, and (B) not go off to the Himalayas and throw the whole thing over. The degree of my illumination was dictated by the requirements of my service contract.

Moreover, I have another service contract as a pillar. I and others like me have agreed to stay till the end and push the last stragglers onto the train. Does that mean that I don’t benefit from Ascension till the very last? No. I can visit but not stay. (5) These truncated experiences were the visits.

I’m a waiter at the banquet of Ascension. (6) I can nibble on the food as we go along. But after the guests have eaten is when we waiters really get to eat. (I will never escape waiting till … the end.)

No longing is as intense as the longing for enlightenment. But we can moderate that intensity through knowledge. If I know that I’ve agreed to certain service provisions that mean no enlightenment before the invited guests, my longing quiets down and I’m able to carry on.

Blossom’s Federation often calls us lightworkers “the strongest of the strong.” (5) To put aside the deepest longings of our soul, to serve, if I may be permitted to say it, I think you’d have to be among the strongest of the strong.

You have been given the insight, the understanding, the tools, the mechanisms, and the will to bring forth your plan within the Mother’s Plan and they are in alignment. Your heart and mind are in the alignment of love.

Now we reignite yet again the will because this is an essential part of the missing piece. It is the will to bring into physicality that which you desire. And how do you express will? It is not through intention, it is through action. (“Jesus’s Call To Action!,” August 6, 2016, at http://counciloflove.com/2016/08/jesus-says-walk-with-me-talk-with-me.)

Archangel Michael: You are our partners. You are the implementers of Nova Earth, the physical builders of Nova Earth embodying, very beautifully, Nova Being. …  You are creating and co-creating with us Nova Earth, new Cities of Light, new centers of peace. (Archangel Michael, “Persistence, Fortitude and Valor Being,” Sept. 17, 2016, channeled by Linda Dillon, Council of Love Saturday Conference Call.)

AAM: So are there new institutions to be built, that reflect love and equality, integrity, and knowing? Yes. But do not forget, you are in the full business of co-creation with us. So this is not arduous, this is not tedious, this is not difficult.

(2) Archangel Michael: That is why we have also said, (this is an aside) there will be several waves of abundance. So we give you the allowance and we see how you do. (“Transcript ~ Archangel Michael on the Source of Power and Authority, AHWAA, March 9, 2017,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/03/18/transcript-archangel-michael-on-the-source-of-power-and-authority-ahwaa-march-9-2017/)

AAM: This plan has been an unfoldment for far too long for money to simply be washed down the drain by decisions that are not beneficial either for yourself or for others and for those who will benefit from the abundance programs, plural. (AAM, Aug. 6, 2013.)

The Next Step for Me – Steve Beckow

butterfly hp

The Next Step for Me

I seem to be in a process of emergence. As I move forward in it, I bump into major roadblocks again and again.

I’m bumping into one now.

I’m not surprised that it’s come up. The minute one takes a position, up comes the opposition.

I’ve taken a position, “no more global small talk – Big talk, big action.” Up comes the opposition: “How do you get off saying that? What makes you so [fill in the blanks],” etc.

I see now that this basic negativity is always around as doubt, disappointment, dejection, distress. I  only sense it vaguely but it’s there and it’s the seedbed for numerous weeds.

So I’d better deal with the opposition that’s come up before taking another step. This is an Ascension ethnography so clearing obstacles is a relevant activity and topic.

This blockage is what Linda Dillon would call a “core issue” and me a “root vasana.” I can’t seem to get at it, dislodge it, experience it through to completion using regular means.

My working hypothesis is that it’s bottled-up rage at the treatment my Dad meted out to me. But I have very little information on it or recall of it.

It’s as if a meteorite hit Earth and buried itself 300 miles under. It’s down there and I know it is but all my efforts to get at it and re-experience it are unsuccessful.

Without getting at it, I pay the following costs.

I don’t feel compassion as deeply as I wish I did.

I’m really hard to convince of the success of something. But when convinced, I’m all for it. (Mood swings.)

My temper is as volatile as my Dad’s was.

Thin soil; no deep roots. Just like my Dad. And his Dad. Intergenerational transfer.

At first I said to myself that I’d “source” (complete) the core issue online. But it’s deeper than that. I’m going to need to meditate to get at it, I think. (1)

Jesus described my situation in Matthew 7:

“A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” (2)

A “good tree” is a sound tree; it’s also a pure tree. It cannot bear bad fruit. “Fruit” are the thoughts and the feelings and actions the thoughts lead to. A good tree can only have good thoughts, etc.

An aside: In the Fifth Dimension we’ll all be sound, pure, “good” trees (vibrating higher-dimensionally), which is why we won’t do harmful things – or even have harmful thoughts. This is when the world will work for everyone (if not before).

I hope that I’m a reasonably sound and pure tree. Reasonably.  I can still bring forth bad fruit. (And I do, regularly. Which is what bothers me and has me seek the source of it.)

How does a tree become diseased and go bad? Vasanas. Core issues. Resentments.

The “bad” tree is thrown into the fire of death and rebirth.

The way out is to cut down the vasanas (not the whole tree) and” throw them into the fire” of awareness. They have to be seen, named, identified, and re-experienced. Then we become again like children, able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven (or ascend).

This that I’m looking at is a root vasana or core issue – buried very deep, almost unnoticed in the background of obviousness.

I need now to un-distract, un-routinize, and un-schedule myself and do some deep looking as the next step.

Love is the Way, the Truth, and the Life – Steve Beckow

Love is the Way, the Truth, and the Life

I’ve just come across notes I made in the middle of a powerful spiritual experience.

Finding myself in an Ocean of Love was an event that occurred sometime after a heart opening I had on Mar. 13, 2015.

I found the notes the other day in the course of research on a different subject.

Love is the Way, the Truth, and the Life

I’ve just had a spiritual experience that I made notes of as it happened. Thank heavens I did. Had I not, I’m not sure that I’d have remembered it.

Do I know how long it will remain with me? No, I don’t. Every spiritual experience short of Sahaja Samadhi is temporary so this one quite likely will leave. So I’d best leave a record.

I was lying down reading when I suddenly found myself in a blue setting like a room, the Mother’s sky blue, when suddenly the blue wall burst and love flowed everywhere.

This was ambrosia. It was nectar. It was the living waters.

Was this a part of the tsunami of love? I think it’s a safe bet to say yes. One version of it, I’m sure.

Let me pick up where I began making notes:

At this moment, I’m seeing love everywhere. I’m immersed in an Ocean of Love, drowned and come alive!

I see that love is everything and love has become everything.

And I am a part of that everything and so I must be love as well.

At this moment I recognize love. I’m aware of it. I experience it.

My essence is love. For however long the moment lasts, I know that I am love.

Love is everything of value. Everything that exists. Every reward we could ever want or would ever ask for. It satisfies completely.

Love is the way, the truth, and the life.

I am love. Everything is love. Love has become everything.

Love is Everything

I’m still blown away, hours later.

I could marry love. Since love is everything, I’d still leave plenty for everyone else.

I surrender to love. Genderless love, as all love is. Universal love, overflowing love, endless love.

I let go of everything old, all remnants of my personality.

Every boyfriend or girlfriend, partner or spouse we’ve ever had? We were only ever seeking love.

And sometimes chemistry happened and it was there. And sometimes not.

Every taste of love is an invitation, not to open to the other person, as great as that is, as much as to open to love.

I’ve seen that love is everything and I’ll never forget it.

I am love and I am everything.

How could it be otherwise? And how could it be otherwise for you?

Love is all we could ever possibly want. Love is all we could ever possibly be.

How much truth can we stand?

Love is the truth. Love has become everything.

The Self: Summer Salad or Crazy Salad? – Steve Beckow

light wings angel

* * *

The Self: Summer Salad or Crazy Salad?

The Self resides in the deepest place of the heart, the seat of the soul. 

Notice that one spiritual experience has a person talking about it for years.

I used to say to myself that one spiritual experience a decade would keep me going.

I found myself muttering to myself this morning: “The Self can be said to ‘reside’ at the far end of the cul de sac that the heart is.” I was pacing my apartment, lost in thought.

But picking up that train of thought, when we can go forward in the heart no longer, we come upon what our sources called “the seat of the soul.” That’s where the Self “resides.”

Matthew Ward, in 2017, quoted the God of this universe:

“In one of God’s talks with my mother, He told her, ‘The heart is the seat of the soul.’ The composition of the soul is the energy of love and it is in the heart area where the love sensation is felt.” (1)

Looking at matters from the standpoint of the Self, taking its seat in the throneroom of the heart (these are all metaphors), there’s no problem at all for it. It’s all-knowing, all-enlightened, blissful, One with Source, etc.

Now take the microscope back somewhat, coming out of the tunnel and the heart. Bringing back into view the spirit consciousness acting through this dense physical body. At this level of density and consciousness, none of the Self is apparent.

As we navigate the streets and shop for dinner, not a thought occurs to us of the Self. We’re focused on social distancing and not forgetting what we came to get.

We’re vibrating at too slow or dense a level to bring into the consciousness of the spirit in the body the awareness native to the Self. But listen to what I just said: The Self, the spirit in the body, the body.

Add to these the Oversoul or Higher Self, the intermediate Seventh-Dimensional Self and the eternal Observer, beyond the Self, and we have a real summer salad.

Or is it a crazy salad? How confusing can it get! Will the real me please stand up?

How many selves do we have?

All organizations of the One Consciousness (selves) reside at different vibratory levels of existence.

The spirit operating the body, which itself is usually native to the Fourth Dimension or Astral Plane, is in a Third-Dimensional body, thinking about the Self, which is above dimensions, all the while being seen by the Observer, which is to say, the “I” of awareness, the No-Self beyond the Self, the One.

It all straightens out when we realize that all of these are who we are on different dimensions (or beyond dimensions) due to our bodies’ different vibrations. Together they constitute our multidimensional Self.

All are real on the dimension or transcendent plane they exist on. All are illusory in terms of the Absolute.

Designing things this way reflects the purpose of life: The task facing each of us is to realize who we are at essence, at which point God meets God.  No, we are not any of our bodies, but we have to realize the truth of this statement.

For that ultimate meeting in which God meets God was all of this – the dimensions, selves, worlds upon worlds – created.

New Age Leadership is Not Hierarchical – Steve Beckow

Venus with Onyx Heart ~ Artist Susan Seddon Boulet

~*~

New Age Leadership is Not Hierarchical

In designing Nova Earth, we want to avoid the pitfalls of the old order. One of those pitfalls is recreating hierarchies, elites, oligarchies.

Michael warns us here: “Don’t get stratified.” (1)

Leadership not Hierarchical

Archangel Michael: What you are doing is learning to operate in a new way. It is a new paradigm for Earth because very often you tend to think of organizations in a very hierarchical manner. (2)

As the head of the corporation, you must have a team. No individual is responsible for the creation or co-creation of Nova Earth. How many times do we have to say to you that we are not a hierarchy; we work cooperatively.

Now, does that mean that no one takes the lead? Of course not. The person who is best suited for that role takes the lead in that spectrum. There needs to be structure; otherwise all you have is chaos. And, you’ve seen enough of that. And, I’m not even talking about sixth-dimensional chaos. You will just simply have mayhem.

So you don’t take someone who is absolutely not only having managerial qualities, but is brilliant in it, and put them in charge of personnel. The IT person knows nothing about providing insurance and health care. So you bring forward a team and that team has to be cohesive and in alignment with what you have termed your mission and purpose, the structure, the belief system of why the company, the institution, the project exists. If they are not, then that is not a good fit. (3)

We are not suggesting that you do not put into operation point people who, depending on their role, assume that responsibility. Now for every person who has a point position, it is important that there be an alternate who is also fully briefed and understands so that if one is not available the other is. That is how you become malleable or flexible. (4)

But do not think that you do not have, and that we do not have the power to bring you, the right people. Or that you do not have in your own divine authority, the ability to call forth, to create and bring to you those people who are a perfect fit.

So that there isn’t an adjustment period, a honeymoon period, a cleaning house period, because that is not…yes, there are going to be adjustments. A team can be your inner circle of six or seven and it can also be an outer circle of thousands – it is still a team.

From the person who wants to sweep the floor at night to the CEO, you are a team. And, each team [member] has equal value. But it is appropriate the CEO does not tell the maintenance how to sweep. And the person who is sweeping does not tell the CEO how to implement the vision. It is all simple. Everybody has a place and every place is critical. (5)

One of the rules of engagement is the sharing of the mantle of power. …

Think of it very much as one person, one vote, but it is more amorphous than that. It has need to be an ebb and flow and an honoring of each person having a piece of that mantle. (6)

The Value of Listening – Steve Beckow

The Royal Dawning – art by A. Andrew Gonzalez

* * *

The Value of Listening

Archangel Michael was discussing the future of the blog with me in mid-2019 and I was beginning to get a bit frightened. I said to him, requesting clarification, “I’m not very social.” And he replied:

AAM: I am not saying, dear heart, that you need to attend cocktail parties.

Steve: Yes, thank you. I’d like to skip that.

AAM: It is not in the nature of your being. Yes, genuine friendships, support, laughter and camaraderie. But to put on a false front? No. That is simply not the meaning of leadership. That is very often the meaning of manipulation. (1)

Thank heavens. No film festivals, no prize ceremonies, no world cruises.

After the Reval, when the real work will begin, I plan to lead as normal a life as possible.

After seeing all this, I said to myself, OK, in light of this, where do you see yourself going? And I saw myself at a conference and the Golden Age of Gaia had set up a booth. There were two comfortable armchairs and a coffee/tea maker. I would sit there during free times at the conference. The sign above the booth read, “I’m here to listen.”

And that’s all I did at the conference.  Make myself available to listen. That was what the West Coast Express was about as well, wasn’t it? Both Kathleen and I are listeners.

My template for being CEO of Michaelangelo & Partners is “The CEO as Listener.”

Let me look at that for a moment.

I’d like to say that listening is easy and I used to say that decades ago.  But good listening is not. To really get where a person is coming from, hear all of what’s happening, and stick around for where they want to go – perhaps for a second run-through at an emotional rather than a story level – is work.

But the result can be another’s freedom from a persistent, vexing issue.

This freedom may never arise as long as the person is not listened to. Not being listened to, they may never have had a chance to lay all their cards on the table. They’ve never seen all that happened, what they’re up against, what they’re dealing with.

Seeing it all can cause an explosive realization. “Oh, THAT‘s what this is all about! Oh, I feel so relieved.”

Yes, the truth just set you free.

In my opinion, listening is the most-beneficial, least-known human therapeutic practice since the Mother birthed civilization.  But of course I’m biased.

So don’t expect me to have a lot to say if you see me at a conference. I say enough here. In person I like to listen.  And I know its value.

Enlightenment Mediated by the Divine Mother and the Archangels – Steve Beckow

Archangel Jophiel by Lily Moses

* * *

Enlightenment Mediated by the Divine Mother and the Archangels

I’ve been saying that our enlightenment experiences are “managed” by the Company of Heaven and giving the examples of my heart opening and sight of the Self.

But recently in the course of other research I came across a passage from the Divine Mother which both confirms their involvement and gives more details on it. From 2018.

The Divine Mother incarnated as Mary, Mother of Jesus

Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow though Linda Dillon, Oct. 26, 2018.

Steve: Now, implicit in what you are saying, Mother, is something that hasn’t been really talked about very much and that’s that the archangels or somebody else is managing our enlightenment experiences, timing, intensity… Am I correct in that?

Divine Mother: It is a Board of Directors rather than being, “managed by.” Because that concept, the way that you have phrased it, dear heart, implies that you are being “managed by.” And that is not correct.

Now also know, and it is delightful to speak about this… In the old realm, you know 5-6 years, a decade ago you were in a realm … well, we would put it perhaps in your terminology, of junior partnership with the various realms, particularly the archangelic realm and even your guardian angels and guides.

So very often, the construct was that things were done for you or certain things were placed in front of you. Now I am not saying that there aren’t a great many things that are put in front of you and done for you continually.

But the timing, the pacing (and when I say pace, I mean the sequential unfoldment) of an Enlightenment process is such that of course you have a guardian and usually an Archangel that is working with you so that it is humanly and can we say, soul or esoterically via your universal self, it is managed.

But you are far more involved and engaged in your Enlightenment process in terms of literal, actual, physical, mental, emotional engagement than you have been previously.

This is a good point for a discussion and that is why we have talked this day of this chaos and this bouncing ball of untruth that is constantly in the air of human relationships right now.

But what is happening is that sometimes in terms of your, shall we call it “schedule?” that you are online for a certain upgrade or opening or level of becoming and the human being despite all the nudging and approaching and support tacitly or actually says, “I’m not ready” or “I’m not interested.”

Focusing on Being Unified in My Life – Steve Beckow

lumens-art-by-jean-luc-at-eye-within-female face water

Lumens ~ Artist Jean-Luc @ Eye Within

* * *

Focusing on Being Unified in My Life

Having made that commitment establishes a beachhead of – not so much understanding as – resolve: “I must unify my life.”

If we were in a growth workshop, I wouldn’t be setting this as a goal for myself. There, we were into dropping all restraints. But we’re in lightwork – service – and different conditions apply.

My first forays out from my beachhead are into observation and consciousness raising.

And the first thing I see is that I differentiate among occasions: I make some more important than others. This scale of importance results in onstage and offstage behavior, with the offstage usually lagging behind.

I resort to metaphors like “Showtime!” to normalize this way of doing things, to help the medicine go down.

So writing is important but what I do over breakfast is not.  My time with you is important but my time with a stranger on the bus is not.

I take it farther. I do everything to protect my space as a hermit so I can write, but I’m seeing that that has an impact on my ability to experience love.

A hermit dodges people. I don’t think you can do that without losing your love for them.

The hermit crab is a perfect metaphor for this condition. Carrying its shell around with it, it dodges others and becomes confined to the tightest of spaces and perpetual solitude (speak of social distancing!). Probably not much love there.

I’m unwittingly promoting disunity and compartmentalization in my life. And that leads to surface thinking, superficial feeling, and habitual behavior: in short, I dull myself out. (2)

It also leads to incongruence: saying one thing and doing another, talking the talk but not walking the walk, etc.

My aim is to be the same with all people. And I’m way, far away from that now.

My powers of concentration have been insufficient to have me feel confident that I can focus on being unified and congruent in my life for an entire day. But I’ll start this day with that resolve.

Archangel Michael on Trusting in the Protection of the Angelics – Steve Beckow

Archangel Michael by Shuangwen @ DeviantArt

* * *

Archangel Michael on Trusting in the Protection of the Angelics

I said earlier that I believe us all to be “mightily” protected.  (1) The “Mighty Ones” are the archangels and so, when it’s said that we’re mightily protected, I assume it means protected by the archangels.

Well, OK, have we any passages that support my contention? Here’s one I came across the other day:

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Nov. 15, 2017.

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

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

It means that there is no need for fear, that this very old core issue/false grid can truly be thrown into the trash heap or the recycle bin to be given back to the light. Few people really believe this and it is curious because there is seldom a situation in which we do not begin and end by saying this.

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

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

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

Exoanthropology is Too Big for a Shoebox – Steve Beckow

Elephant painting by Sascalia

* * *

Exoanthropology is Too Big for a Shoebox

 

Anthropology focuses on human culture, society, and personality.

Exoanthropology widens the focus to all cultures, societies, and personalities. (1)

It includes civilizations in other galaxies.

It includes those in other dimensions.

It includes past lives.

Such a transformation of paradigm cannot occur within existing contexts, like, for example, empirical materialism. You can’t put an elephant in a shoebox. It won’t fit.

Empirical materialism holds that only what can be seen, heard, touched, tasted, or smelled is real. But we know that the Third Dimension – which is what we’re talking about here – is only a small part of the whole truth.

One cannot describe civilizations of higher dimensions within a paradigm that recognizes only our more limited and constricted one. (2)

One cannot fit unseen beings into a context that recognizes only the seen.

And one cannot look at personality from an exoanthropological standpoint without considering the factor of past lives, karma, soul contract, etc., none of which are entertained by empiricists.

For me, empirical materialism has outlived its usefulness.

It was very useful when science was battling for its very existence against religion.

But I’d like it to yield place now to spiritual disciplines, which alone are capable of taking in such things as extraterrestrial civilizations, higher dimensions, unseen realms, and past lives.

Exoanthropology will face the task of describing and measuring the collective consciousness.

It’ll face the task of standardizing languages related to the afterlife dimensions of reality (“the heavens”) and to the physical dimensions – One to Twelve.

Having standardized terminology, it could map the heavens, as far as “mapping” is an apt metaphor.

It could investigate what lies beyond the Twelve Dimensions up to final mergence with the One.

It could include within its field of specialization the description of a cross-cultural spirituality.

It could interpret matters of law in entirely new ways, human rights yielding to divine rights and including all the kingdoms.

It could explore and catalogue such things as healing modalities in other star systems and dimensions, new intellectual and emotional paradigms, viewpoints, and tools. In art, music, dance, architecture, medicine.

Letting go of the empirical-materialist paradigm – the shoebox the elephant won’t fit in – may seem like pulling the ground out from under our feet.

In fact what happens, from my experience, is that we find ourselves no longer oriented towards structures and processes but instead towards flow.

And since the most important things in life and in the higher dimensions are things that flow – like love, bliss, joy, and happiness – I predict that this’ll show up like a distinct improvement in the quality of most people’s lives.

Footnotes

(1)  See “Exo-Anthropology: Anthropology after First Contact,” 

(2) “Dimensions” refers to environments existing at different levels of vibration.

For instance, the end of our migration called “Ascension” will involve leaving the Third and Fourth Dimensions of consciousness behind and entering the vibrational field of the Fifth-Seventh.

There are twelve dimensions to the human domain. After that we get into uncharted territory.

Going Deeper: The Longing for Liberation Observed – Steve Beckow

Devi Darshan – Light Body by Ananda Vdovic

* * *

Going Deeper: The Longing for Liberation Observed

I’ve written a number of articles on the longing for liberation. (2) It’s a built-in, subtidal thirst which only reunion with God will extinguish or satisfy.

I’ve discovered something important about myself in regard to the longing and I’d like to share that discovery. Let me work up to it if you will.

We travel from God to God in a sacred arc which has a spiritual spiral to it.  (See 3) We’re driven forward by this below-awareness itch we can’t scratch, this desire for more, that isn’t satisfied until we reunite with God.

Hindus call it the longing for liberation. Other teachers have other names for it – “yearning for God,” “quest for knowledge and truth,” “impulse to be free,” etc.

I’ve just gotten in touch with the form the longing takes in me. And just naming it for you calls out a response from my being, a resonant “yes,” which confirms my suspicions.

The form mine takes is an impulse to go deeper. Continually deeper and deeper.

I just noticed the impulse a few minutes ago and, when I named it, “Go deeper,” it was as if a cavern opened up inside of me and my experience became more blissful and peaceful. (4)

I said to myself, “This is clearly my path, my direction.”

One teacher has called it “settling into being.”  Ajahn Sumedo tells us how to get there: “Let go, let go, let go.” (5)  Settling into beingness, settling into stillness, settling into silence. And then going deeper into that.

Going deeper into love. Going as deeply as I can. I hypothesize that there will be no end to love’s depth.

For another it might not be to go deeper. It might be to “go higher,” or “go inside.” Who knows? We’re all different and all paths lead to reunion with God, one way or another.

I’ve been asking myself over and over in the last week or so, “What do you want me to do?” And now I have the answer: Go deeper.

I feel as I imagine a man would who is donning his first scuba gear. I’m about to enter a new environment.

“[The] longing for liberation is the will to be free from the fetters forged by ignorance — beginning with the ego-sense and so on, down to the physical body itself — through the realization of one’s true nature.” (Shankara in Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher lsherwood, Shankara’s Crest-Jewel of Discrimination. Hollywood: Vedanta Press, 1975; c1947, 36.)

“All things long for [God]. The intelligent and rational long for it by way of the stirrings of being alive and in whatever fashion befits their condition.” (Pseudo-Dionysius in Cohn Luibheid, trans., Pseudo-Dionysus, His Complete Works. New York and Mahwah: Paulist Press, 1989, 54.)

“Your quest for knowledge and the truth can never really be satisfied until you reach the ultimate – The Source of All That Is.” (SaLuSa, Feb. 23, 2009.)

“The impulse to be free is an evolutionary spark within consciousness which originates beyond the ego. It is an impulse toward the divine, unity, and wholeness. It is an impulse originating from the Truth itself. This impulse to evolve is often co-opted by the ego, which then creates the illusion of the spiritual seeker. This impulse, which is inherently innocent, is something, in and of itself, has nothing to do with any seeking to attain. It is only when the ego co-opts the impulse and then tries to attain something that the seeker is born. This impulse, this spark of evolution, becomes almost instantly corrupted by a wanting which gives birth to the seeker.” (Adyashanti, The Impact of Awakening. Los Gatos: Open Gate Publishing, 2000, 3.)

What this says to me is that I will never be completely healed, completely restored, in all ways, until I’m One with God again.

(3) See “Sacred arc and spiritual spiral” in “Ch. 2 Is There a Plan to Life?” in The Purpose of Life is Enlightenment, ibid.

Briefly, the sacred arc is obvious enough. From God we came and to God we return. The spiral, which makes the arc look like industrial cable, is that way because we return to the same karmic lessons lifetime after lifetime until we learn them. Thus, when depicted, it looks like returning to the same place over and over again, making of the arc a spiral.

(4) Admittedly I’ve known I have a preference for the metaphor of deeper rather than the metaphor of higher. But never have I had a stronger inner response/confirmation of the importance to me of the resolve to “go deeper.”

(5) “I’m making it very simple for you, to save you from getting caught in incredible amounts  of suffering. There’s nothing more sorrowful than having to attend International Buddhist Conferences!

“Some of you might have the desire to become the Buddha of the age, Maitreya, radiating love throughout the world. Just be an earthworm who knows only two words – ‘let go, let go, let go.’” (Ajahn Sumedho, Cittaviveka. Teachings from the Silent Mind. (Hemel Hempstead: Amaravati Publications, 1992; c1984, 44.)

Poof Said for July 12, 2020

POOF SAID (1)

(https://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=150536)

Greetings and Salutations,

We are happy to report that there could be an opening and a release of funds happening rather soon; there are elements at play that make this agreeable and the operation to be completed sooner rather than later.

There are people who intend for this to occur and know the populace needs a shot in the arm. Just don’t doubt and hang in there; if you are doubting that isn’t the energy to provide for solution right now. Hold the best idea aloft and make the good news available to yourself and your mind. Understand that thoughts hold enormous power !!

We are aware of the ever vigilant energies that many are placing on the completion of the PP and the RV and that is not a bad thing at all; add positive energies to everything and you can be confident in the revelations
in upcoming news.

A lot is happening for the planet and a good bit of it is positive though it won’t be seen as that by many. Just be assured that all of this is coming together according to the higher expectations of those who have been holding for a break into the strangling political energies of too many world governments.

So the news going out today can be a bit lighter and more equipped with energies for anticipation. There are things afoot that are good and solid, solid in that they have a stronger background for belief than some have held.

The activities of the troops behind the scenes is gathering momentum and the manner in which the pay outs are set up has changed again and again.

There are so many elements that none of you have given thought to. If it were to happen right now “many would not believe it.” This is a given! Just be aware of the importance of what you believe to be true.

There are funds and intricate ways in which all of this is being worked out. St. Germain is helping out … (2)

Love and Kisses,

Poof

(1) “Poof” is J. A. Holmes, who gave us his “intel” regularly some years ago, before the Deep State offed him.

Now he communicates from the other side. He has a ringside seat. I put a lot of credence in his enhanced observations.

On Poof’s passing in 2013, Sanat Kumara eulogized him:

“Poof has been welcomed with great fanfare. Celebration. Now, this is not unusual, for this is the way in which this process is undergone. But as you well know, this has been a trusted and faithful communicator and servant, and one that has completed the mission — or at least, as it was perceived, let us put it that way.

“There are no immediate plans, for this one, as I have said to you before, or Michael has, he deserves a good rest. And besides which, he is quite confident that he can affect and do a great deal of work from what you think of as this side as well. It is amazing, in many ways, what can be accomplished when you do not have the confines of a mortal body.

“Now, I am not suggesting to any of you that it’s a good idea to leave your body, for that is all in divine order and your timing. But it is incorrect thinking if you decide to leave your body because you think that you can do better work or more fulfilling work from this side.

“But Poof has literally been true to his name. He has gone up in smoke. And he has arrived home, at peace, in joy and love, and he will be in constant communication with his beloved wife.”  (“Sanat Kumara: Many of You Have Already Ascended and Straddle Dimensions,” May 28, 2013, http://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/05/sanat-kumara-many-of-you-have-already-ascended-and-straddle-dimensions/.)

(2) AAM: When we say that in the current amorphous structure, well amorphous as you know it, that St. Germaine’s World Trust is tucked into under that umbrella of prosperity packages, there is also the chance, (because it is not written in stone, not even in amethyst), that if things do not go forward at a pace that is desirable for the unfoldment of the Mother, that he will proceed with the disbursement of his funds in a different way. (AAM, March 28, 2018.)

Exo-Anthropology: Anthropology after First Contact – Steve Beckow

SaLuSa

* * *

Exo-Anthropology: Anthropology after First Contact

Doubtless someone has already coined the term, but, if not, I’ll coin it: Exo-anthropology.

I said earlier that if we couldn’t build something tangible, let’s build a literature. Well, here’s a first entry in a literature called “Exo-anthropology.”

Anthropology is the study of human culture and society. Exo-anthropology is the study of human culture and society after assimilating the knowledge contributed by other galactic and intergalactic civilizations.

Some of these civilizations are reputedly our forebears. Let me cite some examples of channeled messages on the subject:

Matthew Ward: “Of the innumerable other civilizations in this universal family, many are advanced consciously, spiritually and technologically far beyond Earth’s current population. Members of some of those civilizations are the ancestors of Earth’s peoples, and they are assisting the populace and the planet in myriad ways—some are in spacecraft surrounding Earth, others are living among you.” (1)

SaLuSa: “You do not exist by some freak of nature, and are not the result of natural selection, but purposefully and lovingly created to exist in your environment. You are a special species of Humans that have taken over from Cro-Magnon Man, and have been genetically engineered to allow for a speeding up in your evolution.

“That we would say has been particularly successful, and the proof lies in how many of you now stand in readiness for Ascension. On your part it is in fact a tremendous achievement, to have had lives during the darkest hours and to have risen up from them. You are now the untouchables and providing you keep your sight set firmly on ascending, nothing will be able to divert your attention from success.” (2)

SaLuSa: “The majority of you are family to the different members of the Galactic Federation, and that mainly relates to the Sirians and Pleiadians. Usually those of you who are extraterrestrials know it deep down, because you find it so hard to settle down to Earth life, with its heavy vibrations.” (3)

Mike Quinsey: “Bear in mind that you have connections with Star Systems such as the Pleiades, Sirius and even Andromeda. As souls from many different Star Systems many of you have come to Earth to further your evolution that is always ongoing until you once again become a Being of Light. At this stage it may sound unreal and a strange concept, but you are simply on a path back to from whence you originally came.” (4)

We’re on a path back from whence we originally came.  That has (at least) two levels of meaning. One, as a species, Gaians are descended from other star nations and are on a path back to reunion with them.

Two, as a group, lightworkers are here from higher dimensions, donning the dense physical body at great sacrifice. We’re previously-ascended beings, here as waiters at the banquet of Earth’s Ascension.

Combine this knowledge with a true rendering of Earth’s history through the good offices of our higher-dimensional star family (and the akashic records) and we have the foundations of exo-anthropology, anthropology after First Contact.

Making My Spiritual, Work, and Everyday Life One – Steve Beckow

heart-of-infinity-anna-ewa-miarczynska-at-fine-art-america - heart

Heart of Infinity ~ Artist Anna Ewa Miarczynska @ Fine Art America

💖

Making My Spiritual, Work, and Everyday Life One

Pandemic, lockdown, race riots, political wars, on and on. More and more I feel thrown back on my own resources, isolated, out of contact with people.

And now I’m choosing to go out of touch with those last few boots on the ground I relied on to give me a modicum of hopefully-unbiased news.

Even they are polarized and shouting about this and that group. Sen Joe McCarthy would have felt at home in the current environment. Adolf Hitler would be exploiting it.

To say that my heart isn’t into it is an understatement.

So, thrust back on my own resources in what looks like outer chaos, (1) I saw that I needed to make one important change in my life to keep my sanity and get through this period. This was the perfect time to do it.

I could no longer support having a life compartmentalized into spiritual, work, and everyday life. I had to make them one and the same. I had to have congruence in my life. I had to integrate everything I knew about myself to shake the cobwebs off of me.

Speaking only for me, I have “streamers,” to use Matthew’s word, inside of me that are prone to conflict, divisiveness, arguing. If I go on compartmentalizing, I leave the door open to perpetual conflict from the divided and self-serving egoic mind. I want to do this; no, I want to do that, all of this happening below everyday awareness and never being spoken about.

There has to be no difference between my spiritual, work, and everyday life.

From this vantage point that looks like a huge undertaking – my personal D-Day.

Immediately the demands of one collide with the requirements of another. The bargaining begins, the bottlenecks arise, and the possibility of conflict ensues.

But the bridge has to be crossed and the sooner I do it, the better.

I have to make my spiritual, work, and everyday life one.

(1) I’m aware that what I propose addresses my inner chaos. As within, so without.

Do Archangels have Territories? – Steve Beckow

archangel-and-faith-by pamela-mccabe - faces angels wings

Archangel and Faith ~ Pamela McCabe

💛

Do Archangels have Territories?

I keep coming upon tidbits from Michael that I have to post. Here are two: One on whether archangels have territories and a second on the phenomenon of celestials incarnating.

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

Steve: Do archangels have responsibility for geographical areas in the universe? Are they responsible for different planets or how does that work?

Archangel Michael: No, but, having said that the focus of our work at different points of time will focus on different geographic areas. So let us use a practical example.

Much of my work – yes, of course-  is done in the areas of disentitlement or disenfranchised situations; therefore much of my work in the, what we would call recent years, [has been] in Africa and in the Middle East.

Does that mean that I restrict myself geographically? No. Certainly not. So are there times when we are working in various quadrants or sectors? Yes. Or with specific groups? Yes.

But it is not restricted to that. So while I am a very focused right now on my primary objective of Peace on Earth on behalf of the Mother/Father One… I am also in other places!

Steve: Good heavens, you’re all over the place.

AAM: I am almost as busy as you, dear heart!

And a second on celestials incarnating and the change of rules with this Ascension.

Archangel Michael, ibid., Oct. 29, 2014.

Archangel Michael: The rarity of the archangels incarnat[ing] is just that. It is a rarity. But let us also say in this time of the unfoldment of the plan on Earth ― and now we are talking about a lifetime because you [humans] did not simply arrive, fully awake and aware, but in this time-frame ― let us think in terms of a hundred years ― of this unfoldment of the Ascension plan of the Mother, all the rules have been changed.

So it is not simply that what is going on upon Gaia is different. What we have done and been up to has also been different. Why do you think we keep harping on the fact that we are in sacred partnership, that we do with you? This is a very big change in the very nature of how we have worked with humanity.

Steve: I thought it was because humanity was growing up.

AAM: It is because humanity is growing up. And you’ve grown up enough to be able to work as co-partners with us. So it is not that we have archangels incarnating all over the multiverse. We do not.

Steve: Okay.

AAM: So the rule … the preference ― I should not even say rule ― the preference of all of us who are archangels, and even seraphim, for example, has changed. 

Now, is that going to hold true for the rest of time or eternity? Well, we have choices. We have not yet decided.

So has it been the norm that it was exceptionally rare for an archangel to incarnate? 

Yes. Are there several now upon planet, as well as ascended ones, as well as enlightened beings? Yes.

Moving Forward – Narendra Mishra

Moving Forward

As it often happens, days after Spirit drops an idea into my head, I am inspired to write about it by a synchronistic event. In this case, I’m moved by a piece on vasanas, or core issues, as posted by Steve Beckow. (1)

In this article, Archangel Michael (AAM) goes into the ins and outs of vasanas – what they are, how to spot them, and how to clear them. He also touches upon this lifetime of mastery for us and our collective desire that we be rid of vasanas once and for all. This is necessary work pre-ascension. In fact, He states (along with Ramana Maharishi) that only in full Ascension is one completely rid of vasanas.

I consider this information to be mandatory for those along a dedicated Ascension path. This piece is particularly important for two reasons.

First, as wayshowers we have been clearing, and clearing, and clearing for years and decades. As AAM has suggested, we’ve been clearing vasanas for ourselves and the collective. However, as “spiritually and emotionally mature” humans the collective has now need to engage in this process for themselves.

The information presented by AAM serves as a one-stop-shop manual for the collective on dealing with vasanas. Most won’t come to it by themselves, at least not yet. However, they will be guided to come to us as spiritual teachers/healers/lightworkers. By dint of our own experience, and our own toolsets we’ll be able to recognise and assist in pointing out their own vasanas to them.

As a Vedic astrologer, it is common for me to identify several vasanas that a client has brought with them simply by looking at their birth charts. As a Reiki Master, the same is true – the energy of the individual portrays the vasanas still held within their personal energy fields (subtle bodies).

This work of assisting others who are drawn to us is a part of the second phase of Ascension which we all agreed upon as Lightworkers. (1) This phase comes as part of the grand cosmic reset which took place astrologically during the period November 2019 – February 2020. This period saw as many as 5 planetary bodies come into alignment (or close alignment) with the galactic core in a conjunction that is historically unprecedented.

This grand cosmic reset event brings us now to the second reason of why AAM’s treatise is important. Most of us lightworkers have now cleared to the point where we are ready to take a quantum leap forward in our own Ascension. Whether it is full ascension or not I don’t know. It also depends on individual soul contracts as to whether we ascend early or later.

During a recent spiritual healing session with a client, my Higher Self (that I still prefer not to name) came forward and merged with me in a manner that was never done before. I found that experience to be very significant for, after all, this is what Ascension is – merging and integration with our Higher aspects whilst physically embodied.

This grand reset also marks the start of the next phase of Ascension – building Nova Earth. After all the work of clearing, after the accountability and exposés, when the false systems are recognised and dismantled by the general collective, what systems are in place to replace the old?

Once again lightworkers are called into leadership by putting these new systems into place now. These systems will be based on divine principles that each of us has experienced personally in our lives. We’ll be inspired to come together in community, local and global, to assist and support each other in bringing new ideas into fruition. (2), (3) The advent of the Reval will be the divine assistance and intervention we need to manifest much of these projects.

With the grand cosmic reset, the energy has indeed shifted. The energetic tide has turned in our favour. No longer do we swim against the current, but now we swim with the current.

Healers may have noticed that healing now proceeds faster and easier than ever before since the start of the new year. Many of us are being called to physically relocate (as I did last year) or make some major changes such as in professions, life partners, etc.

All of these come as a result of clearing our own personal and collective vasanas. For when we clear a vasana we no longer resonate with the people/places/events that the vasana attracted to us and we leave it behind. As we move forward energetically we attract physical people/places/events to match our new energetic frequency.

As the general collective comes to do their own clearing, consciously or unconsciously, they may find their lives spiralling out of control as these abrupt changes take place for them. They may be guided to come to you for advice as Lightworkers. AAM’s discussion is the manual you will need to refer to in many cases. ​

Confirming a Spiritual Theory – Steve Beckow

Archangel Michael – JezhawkUK @ Etsy

* * *

Confirming a Spiritual Theory

In 2011, Archangel Michael was explaining Ascension to me. This was seven months after we “met.”  (1) He said:

“In that moment [of Ascension], what we are calling a moment, there is a choice. Do you want — and it can happen instantaneously, because so many of you have laid the foundation — do you want to be in the heart of one of love? Do you wish to be in the higher frequency?

“In the very last second, all they need to say is yes, and allow themselves to be flooded by what you can think of as a tidal wave of energy that will sweep the planet. That is why we say all are invited.” (2)

Having stumbled on the quote in the database, may I take a stab at interpreting it? I recognize aspects of my own experience in his description. And it turns out that he’s confirmed a theory I’ve had for years, as I’ll discuss below.

This is a freewill planet. Always we have to ask and, in regards to something subsequently brought to us, we have to show our receptiveness by saying “yes.”

The Mother, the celestials, and the galactics will not intervene in our lives unless invited. “Ask and ye shall receive.” When they bring something to us for us to receive, they also always ask. We must say “yes.”

In other posts, I’ve shown the Mother and Michael moderating and modulating my spiritual experiences so I have firsthand/corroborated knowledge that they do it. (3)

We have to change our thinking from believing that we “win” enlightenment by our own efforts or by ceasing our efforts to seeing that enlightenment happens at a moment of the Mother’s choosing.

Because of the nature of enlightenment – it is a moment of perfection – that moment will be entirely satisfying. For example, my heart opening happened three hours before I had a reading with Michael on Feb. 13, 2015. Perfect timing. And of course the experience itself was beyond perfect.

But put all that aside for now. Let me repeat Michael:

“Do you want to be in the heart of one of love? Do you wish to be in the higher frequency?

“In the very last second, all they need to say is yes, and allow themselves to be flooded by what you can think of as a tidal wave of energy that will sweep the planet.”

OK, I’ve been in the “heart of one of love.” I’ve been in “the higher frequency.”

I’ve been “flooded by what you can think of as a tidal wave of energy.”

All of that happened in the heart opening I mentioned.

When this that Michael is describing happens, I speculate that the heart opens fully and permanently.  That is Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi, the culmination of Ascension. It’s liberation from the Third-Dimensional realm of birth and death and entry into the Fifth-Dimensional realm of no birth and no death.

I’ve felt the inner tsunami of love and drowned myself in the Ocean of Love. But it was temporary and surely not the full experience of love or bliss. If it were, I’d be ascended and I don’t consider myself to be.

But Sahaja is simply, according to my theory, a deeper experience of the same Love that one feels when in a heart opening.  Sahaja is after all a permanent and full heart opening.

As I’ve said before, it isn’t that we have a different experience at each chakra on our journey of enlightenment. It’s that our experience of the chosen ideal (Love for me, Krishna for someone else, the Tao for a third) deepens.  (4)

Michael has confirmed that theory for me here. He’s described the last moment of mortality. This is the moment, when, from a terrestrial point of view, we become “immortal.” We always were immortal but the ancients didn’t believe that was so. We had to win immortality through salvation or redemption (i.e., Ascension).

So Michael is describing what Christians would call salvation, when the mortal “becomes” immortal. He’s depicted it as “a tidal wave of energy that will sweep the planet.”  A tidal wave of love.

His description is more emphatic than mine. Of course it would be. But more to the point, because he’s describing the last moment of mortality – something to be emphatic over –  and the first moment of immortality, it confirms for me that Ascension, for me, when it happens, will be a deepening into Love.

The Mother and Michael are not going to switch my horse in midstream. They’ve opened the Gate of Love and I’m now buckled up and riding through it and down the trail.

Michael’s description of Ascension has confirmed my theory, that we go deeper and deeper into our chosen ideal, rather than having different kinds of experiences. (5) I would think the former would be less jarring than the latter. Given that we’re ascending as a planet, I’d choose the least jarring route.

Dang, I can’t tell you how good it feels to have a spiritual truth confirmed.

AAM and I have not stopped conversing since then. I am one of the luckiest humans alive to have had this experience. If it stopped tomorrow, I have enough guidance to keep me going for … decades.

Can You Imagine? – Steve Beckow

Lion grooved - colour spirit lion -

* * *

Can You Imagine?

Mónica Esgueva: “We need to acknowledge our pain, our wounds and our darkness, both individually and collectively. We need to embrace all aspects without judgment in order to transcend them.” (1)

You know I don’t believe that death is the end.

You know why – I don’t need to cover the ground again, I’m sure – 1977 OOBE, 2007 New Maps of Heaven, etc.

Nevertheless, hearing the sad news I heard a few days ago has sent me into grieving.

I know. I know. I know all about how I should be – impassive, equanimous, accepting. Well, I guess I’m not there yet.

My body doesn’t care what I should be doing. (2)

I seem to be passing through the five stages of grieving. (3) The news was enough to trigger it.

I went through denial in the first two or three days. No, no; med beds, sound therapy, light therapy, etc.

Now I’m into the anger phase, ready to tear someone’s head off. Anyone who even looks askance at me. The gods are taking XXX from me.  Can you imagine? (4)

Look. The buses are running for heaven’s sake. What is this? People are walking by, unconcerned. XXX is leaving and life just goes on. How can that be?

My friends here have kept me cool and calm throughout the day (special thanks to Sitara). I was enraged.

You also know that I know that we’re designed to go through these things now. This is the Deep Cleansing we’ve been hearing about if I can have the honor of naming this phase.

And this is the deepest cleansing I can think of. Why did I think the cleansing was going to be only external and not also internal????

A lot of my self-importance and selfishness is up and in my face. What does my facade matter anymore? Compared to this, what does anything matter anymore?  My normal concerns seem pathetic. I can’t get into action to serve them.

Why keep up whatever pretenses I’m keeping up? Who the heck cares. I feel myself cracking open, spiritually.

Remember I follow the awareness path so, whereas many of the empaths around me are feeling things, I’m aware of them. Sometimes that involves feeling, sometimes thinking, being, doing. (5)  These are the tools I bring to any process I go through and grieving is a process. (6)

Gosh, I don’t hurt as much when I write.  I totally forgot my rage in the process of sharing by writing this.  When I breathe deeply, I feel grief. But I notice that it’s grief now and not rage. That seems to be progress.

It’d be nice if I find that I’ve passed through the anger phase. Until then, my job is to observe and listen.

What’s happening to me right now is an example of how deep the cleansing could go. If what I’m experiencing is representative, those of us who have been closed are being “opened.” (I’m trying to use neutral words.)

Here’s the other side of the coin. In the times when I was not enraged, I’ve never said hello to as many people as I have today and I also had more pleasant conversations than I’ve had since I was a teenager.  I was even smiling – me, who is always on his guard – smiling. And enjoying it.

I’m not saying it’s me. I’m saying it’s us.

For reasons unknown to me, my recovery times are usually very short. But this one is deep. I can’t think of anything deeper. Good luck and God bless to anyone else going through the same thing.

(1) “Mónica Esgueva ~ Coming Clean First,” 

(2) I remember hearing that a favorite uncle had died some years ago. When I heard the news I was sad but not extravagantly so. Then in the middle of the night, my body sat upright in bed and was convulsed in tears. My body has a mind of its own.

(3) Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance are I believe the five stages.

(4) I think we could safely call this an existential dilemma.

(5) I flow where my awareness goes and my awareness flows where I go. We’re joined at the hip.

I wouldn’t be surprised, when the drama is over and the cast of thousands is revealed, to find that I was dancing with my twin flame or an archangel. When I say that, it resonates inside. Hmmmm…. The thought helps lift me out of the trench I’m in.

(6) Just enter “awareness” or “path of awareness” in the search box.

Grief Waiting to Explode – Steve Beckow

Grief Waiting to Explode

I’ve just had some devastating news recently. It wouldn’t be fair to name the person involved.

But I can’t imagine the shaft penetrating deeper into my heart.

I’m going through one space after another – grief, hatred, the collapse of self-importance, helplessness.

It also has me addressing some issues in my life that have been hanging around since forever. Life is suddenly too short.

I maintain that we’re all being put through situations at this time that have great meaning and application to our missions.

Some of them take the form of deep cleansing, which this one seems to be for me.

I made notes closer to the event…..

Nothing that had meaning for me yesterday necessarily has meaning for me today.  It may or it may not. I’ve lost interest in everything that seemed important yesterday.

I feel like lead. I have a ball of grief in my stomach, just waiting to explode. It aches.

When I sit, I want to stand. When I stand, I want to sit. I can’t find any position or activity that allows me to relax for more than a minute.

I can’t imagine the life beyond. I don’t want to imagine it.  This is a lifetime of associations and memories we’re talking about.

I’m not making decisions all that well right now. I feel listless. What’s the point?

The word “reeling” comes to mind. I’m reeling from the shock.

At the same time as these emotional events are happening inside, I’m amazed at how calmly I’m taking things on the outside.  Back in university, I’d be busy having a nervous breakdown.

Well, I did, as a matter of fact. More than once.

But now it’s just something more I need to handle. And I will. Not elegantly. But I will.

Here come the tears….

New Maps of Earth – Steve Beckow

New Maps of Earth

At the end of my last reading, Michael said, tantalizingly (and I have to repeat part of the quote, from yesterday’s post):

Steve: My big concern is that I’ll be head of a large organization and have no memory.

Archangel Michael: And you think that we would leave you helpless?

Steve: No, I hope not.

AAM: No, dear heart, that is not the plan.

Steve: Oh good! Even knowing there is a plan is comforting.

AAM: There is not only a plan, Sweet One. There is a strategy afoot to implement the plan.

Steve: Anything more you want to tell us about the strategy? Anything that you left out?

AAM: It is unfolding.  (1)

Wait! Wait! Don’t go. I want to hear more.

I don’t know about you but I find what he said hugely reassuring.

There’s not only a plan, but a strategy afoot to implement the plan.

Go, Company of Heaven.

In an earlier reading he said:

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

“Remember that our undertaking is the tracking of spiritual evolution to a higher realm of consciousness and that is the focus that we must always return to. ” (2)

The tracking of spiritual evolution to a higher realm of consciousness? I love that assignment.

The Divine Mother has made the same request to focus on the future:

“There are times for the contemplation of what has gone beforehand, and you have had such a period of time, and you will have that again. But in this day, in this moment, I ask you to gaze forward and to gaze forward with clear intent and the acuity of your inner vision and knowing.” (3)

So when I come out of being in the moment into the world again, (4) focus on the future. Why? What does that do?

Mike Quinsey tells us:

“By projecting your vision of what it will be like you are helping to bring it into being at the earliest time.” (4)

It’s as if I’m being retrained: stay out of the past; be in the moment; and, when you apply yourself, focus on the future. I can do that.

If we feel the need to focus our attention, then let it be on exploring and mapping new pathways to the future. That will bring the future into being at the earliest possible date.

I’m enrolled. We already have New Maps of Heaven. Now let’s have New Maps of Earth.

The Duration of Ascension Depends on What “Ascension” Means – Steve Beckow

Artist ~ Malinda Prudhomme

The Duration of Ascension Depends on What “Ascension” Means

June 24, 2020 by 

People ask, “When is Ascension? How long do we have to wait?”

I’d like to address that question.

As far as I’m concerned, there are many ways one could measure when “Ascension” is complete, depending on what one means by the word itself.

One could restrict the meaning to the transformation in consciousness. Sahaja Samadhi is the culminating event in that sense of “Ascension.”

If that were the case, one would mark Sahaja as the endpoint in “Ascension.” There are stages to Ascension, and these stages are associated with spiritual experiences, which I’ll explain later, below.

But that’s not the only way one could measure it.

One could consider that the foundation of Nova-Earth society and the restoration of the planet would mark the end of an “Age of Ascension” – and the beginning of a Golden Age. In this case, the duration of “Ascension” would be seen as going well beyond the actual event. (1)

Are these the only interpretations of Ascension possible? No, I don’t think so. Let me explain.

I have to put on my cultural historian’s hat for a moment. I’m a little rusty at this.

A word is a symbol and a symbol is a thing or event upon which meaning may be freely and arbitrarily bestowed.

Take the word “Ascension.” There’s nothing that prevents Bill from having one meaning for it and Mary, another. Humans have the ability to create symbols and communicate them, freely and arbitrarily.

There’s no restricting the meaning of a word. Sometimes I wish there were! (2) People will mean by it whatever they do.

What we’re searching for is the truth among the versions, all of which are based on a different interpretation of “Ascension.”

If it’s like everything else, that truth will arise as a result of (A) intellectual understanding, (B) emotional experience, and (C) spiritual realization.

I have only an intellectual understanding of Ascension. What I say on the subject plus $2.50 will buy you what? You got it. A cup of coffee. My opinion has no inherent value.

And how right have I been in all my predictions? I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

But I have experienced and realized in areas short of Ascension and of course discussed the subject with Michael.

From the vantage point of this moment, I see Ascension this way.

Our human bodies can only tolerate conditions within a narrow range. When our temperature varies even by a few degrees, we feel cause for concern.

The spiritual changes that are happening within us are also only tolerable within a certain range, unknown to me.

If evolution happens faster than that, the human body may react. Certainly we may begin to worry. And the spiritual process could be short-circuited by our resistance in the form of anxiety.

To prevent that, we’re being slow cooked, simmered, slow enough that we’re not aware of the transformational process.

The Ascension timeline lengthened quite a bit when, in 2012, we opted to ascend as a planet.

That takes longer than what was originally planned. We added years onto the process. Now billions have to be awakened instead of millions.

Archangel Michael discussed the matter in my last reading with him:

“When humanity made the decision to proceed as a unified whole in the process and the accomplishment of Ascension, we have spoken to you often and throughout the years about how this was a highly-evolved, spiritual, and practical human-physical choice and decision point.

“It would be an understatement for us to say that most of humanity, consciously or not, did not know the magnitude of disruption, of upheaval, of shifting that such a monumental choice would truly entail. …

“And of course there are many still very active that do not wish to see the removal, the disintegration of old systems.

“But nevertheless, that is exactly what is transpiring, Sweet One. And that, is good news!” (3)

In the outer arena, everything old and unusable is “disintegrating,” being removed or reorganized. In the inner arena, well, I certainly am being reorganized. That’s an understatement.

The point of what I’m saying is that Ascension has to be, with exceptions, a slow process. Its duration has to be measured in years. But whether it ends a few years from now or a decade depends on the meaning one gives to “Ascension.”

I believe the exceptions to the slowness of the process are the very rare spiritual experiences that occur normally as the kundalini rises – spiritual awakening (4th chakra), cosmic consciousness (6th chakra), God Realization (7th chakra), and Sahaja Samadhi (beyond the third-dimensional chakra system, a full and permanent heart opening).

However my experiences have not followed this pattern and I’m aware that the rules have changed. (4)

Usually after an experience like the first three, the denseness of the human body causes us to lose our connection to it over time. But our bodies are evolving along with us and it remains to be seen whether these states will prove more lasting now.

With these notable exceptions, the process of Ascension, in my view, needs to be slow and gradual.

Footnotes

(1) Which I think explains a recent citing of 2030 as the end of Ascension. That date to me sounds like it takes in the founding of Nova Earth and the restoration of the planet.

(2) The whole thrust of New Maps of Heaven was to try to standardize terminology about the afterlife planes. But there is no mechanism by which to do this and it probably wouldn’t be desirable to do if there was. We may have to live with the fact that symbols can be freely and arbitrarily created and nothing can (or should) be done to prevent it.

(3) Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, June 17, 2020.

(4) You see all the rules have changed. You have decided to maintain form. That doesn’t mean we’re going to have you punished by not allowing you access to the 7th.

That is the old paradigm. ‘You can’t come here, unless you die.’ Well, that’s not true! That’s what enlightenment and Ascension is about. You can go as far [as you like?], you can go and feel and be the Love that is the 7th Christ consciousness. You can have it all and then you pull it into your physical form so that you are a walking, talking, working, creating Christ-conscious Being. (“Transcript: Heavenly Blessings – St. Germaine on Where to Look for Results,” channeled by Linda Dillon, July 15, 2014, at http://goo.gl/OxNpnG.)

Steve Beckow: It’s very different from classical theory.

Archangel Michael: Classical theory has served you well. Now you are on a new course. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Feb. 20, 2018.)

AAM: You are in a time of individual and collective Ascension that has never occurred upon your planet or elsewhere so many of the historic and accurate understandings with regard to heart openings have shifted, can we say, expanded. (Aug. 3, 2015.)

Is the Heart the Seat of the Soul? – Steve Beckow

LOVE by Amber Lamoreaux @ Pexels

~*~

Is the Heart the Seat of the Soul?

It was my experience that the Self was to be found in the “seat of the soul.” That is, the Self or soul “resides” in the deepest reaches of the heart.

I found it after descending, in meditation, down into the heart as far as I could possibly go on Sept. 18, 2018. I’d literally reached the back wall of the heart. And there was the Self, innocent and pure.

I don’t want to go into the whole story of how the experience was truncated so I wouldn’t go off to a cave. The important thing is the treasure map: The Self is to be found in the heart. Seek it in the heart. X marks the spot.

A few days later, Archangel Michael confirmed my experience:

“You have journeyed to the depths of your soul, to the depths of your core. …  And you have discovered, not lack, not criticism, not error, but beauty. Underneath the dross is the full beauty, the power, the gentleness, the sweetness of who you are.
” (1)

Are there any other statements from the Company of Heaven that also confirm the heart as the seat of the soul? It’d be useful to show that looking upon it that way is not a mere figure of speech but an actual reality.

Yes, Matthew Ward confirmed it in 2008: “Your heart [is] the seat of the soul.” (2) And the soul is the same as the Self. So your heart is the seat of the Self.

On another occasion, in 2017, he quoted the God of this universe:

“In one of God’s talks with my mother, He told her, ‘The heart is the seat of the soul.’ The composition of the soul is the energy of love and it is in the heart area where the love sensation is felt. It’s with good reason that you say, ‘I love you with all my heart,’ and add little heart symbols to love notes and send heart-embellished valentines to people especially dear to you.” (3)

Matthew confirms it implicitly in another of his messages:

“The spiritual level on which you will change your leaders from being darkly-ruled themselves to people worthy of being leaders – true leaders with spiritual integrity – is within your hearts. That’s your usual depiction of where love resides, is it not?

“Actually, the sensation of love is a province of the soul, but it has strong physical effects at the heart that instantly spread throughout your entirety to uplift you in spirit, mind and body.” (4)

Is that not pretty much the same as saying love is found in the heart; it must flow; and we get to experience it as it flows through us?

Matthew informed us that focusing on the heart as the seat of the soul can bring us spiritual rewards, which certainly coincides with my experience:

“Remembering that the heart is the ‘seat of the soul’ and envisioning yourself as a glowing star [i.e., the Self] can fill you with the sensation of BEing part of the celestial spheres.” (5)

It can also leave you drowned in an Ocean of Love. I believe that everyone’s experience is custom-tailored to their own spiritual beliefs and ideals. Certainly mine have been.

Looking upon the Self at the seat of the soul filled me with an immense sense of well-being, purity, and innocence that was entirely new to me and definitely a step upward. In Buddhist terms, I was looking at my original face.

And it was temporary. Michael advised me if I wanted to remain in service, then “visit; don’t stay.” (6)

Finally, Michael speaking through Ronna Vezane suggests that the heart is where we’ll find all good things:

“Within your Sacred Heart Center you will find wisdom, compassion, patience, and most important of all, unlimited Sacred Love. … This very moment, as you move into your Sacred Heart Center, you can experience the profound love and compassion of our Father/Mother God and the Supreme Creator. …

“We have stressed over and over again, one of the greatest challenges, yet one of the most important tasks to be accomplished in order to step onto the spiral of Ascension, is to maintain a focused point of awareness within your Solar Power Center. In doing so, you will maintain an open passage into the Sacred Heart − thereby allowing the Creator Light to flow freely to and from you.” (7)

Thus it’s by no means a mere figure of speech to think of the heart as the treasure box containing the spiritual wealth we seek. The treasure is to be found two digits right of the breastbone. Dig deep.

Take your awareness on a journey as far into the heart as you can go and see what awaits you there. You have the map. You have the right address.

Closer to the Perfection of Our Soul Design – Steve Beckow

***

Closer to the Perfection of Our Soul Design

As we progress dimensionally, we come closer and closer to the perfection of our design. For instance, Michael describes the difference it will make to us to live in the Fifth Dimension:

“Your organs, your brain, your functions, your bodily functions, your circulation begin to function in alignment with the perfection of your design.

“The sense of physicality and being in the physical body, when you are in the fifth dimension, is very different….

“When you are in the fifth, you will feel… so full of vibrant energy. You will feel that you could go for days without sleeping, and just go on sheer energy.

“There will be a greater sense of well-being, that your body is humming.” (1)

Just as I’ve been saying that higher-dimensional love is a world beyond our experience, so Michael tells us that the way we be in our bodies is very different: endless energy, body working in every respect. We honestly have no idea what awaits us.

There ‘s none of the density, none of the resistance there that there is in our everyday reality. Imagine the difference between stirring your morning coffee and stirring cement. That’s about the difference between 5D and wherever we are.

This uplevelling of experience as we travel higher should convince us that life just keeps getting better and better. (2) And that should speak volumes about the design of life itself. The nearer we approach God, the better life gets.  Hmmmm….. Deduction about the design of life?

The Lord Maitreya describes how returning more closely to our real blueprint or soul design will allow us to see marvels like the inner universe. I saw it perhaps thirty years ago.  I was awestruck looking out on the panorama of space from an inner prominence.

“Now, you are coming to understand, and the channel has referred to it in a slight way, how the universe is entirely within you as well as external to you. And that is part of the return to your true blueprint. Now, you have anchored, all of you, what you refer to, what we refer to as your soul design, your individuated blueprint. But your blueprint, your being, not just metaphorically, but in actuality, is that mirror of what lies externally to you.” (3)

So a closer return to our soul design releases powers within us that produce miracles and marvels like this.

We’ve brought in the fulness of our soul design this lifetime, our mastery, Michael tells us:

“You came in divine perfection, in the fullness, particularly in this life and at this time of Ascension, you came with the fullness of your soul design, your talents, your capacities and your abilities.

“We have been telling you that this is the time of your mastery. You have access to your multidimensional self. So it is time for this illusion to simply be eliminated, blessed, disintegrated, released, surrendered, and let go.”  (4)

I’m here to the end so don’t look to me to let go of the illusion. (5) You go on ahead.

I don’t know how many times I’ve said to Archangel Michael (I no longer feel this way) that I don’t have the strength, the competence, the vision to do what he wants me to do. And his response on one occasion focused on soul design.

“If the Mother designed or desired for what you think of as perfect beings to be in the forefront of this unfoldment, then she would have done so.  Part of what you are doing is showing the willingness, demonstrating the commitment to step forward in what you perceive of as imperfection or even incompleteness and to do so on behalf of the Mother. …

“So are you up for this challenge? This opportunity? This adventure? Of course you are. DO NOT WORRY.” (6)

And I’ve stopped worrying.  He’s my quartermaster. Every month there’s bread on the table. Because of him, I’m here in all my imperfections.

My soul design is to be a writer, a communicator, and an agent of change. Here’s my charter from Michael:

“There is much to be said for Everyman, and that is part of the role you play. Yes, you are a pillar. You are an anchor. You’re [a monitor] (7) but you’re also playing the role of Everyman – with curiosity, with exploration, with insight. So our desire is not to separate you from the collective.”  (8)

Yes, sir.

What’s your soul design, your purpose, your mission? What do you yearn to do? What do you do that brings you bliss or joy or peace? (That’s your mission.)

It’s a no-brainer. That is, the answer isn’t to be found at the intellectual level of existence, but at no less than the experiential and best of all at the realizational level.

What may separate you from knowledge of your mission – and I mean no offence – is that you may not be prepared to admit that you actually do know what it is.

Salvation, by the way, and Redemption were Jesus’s terms for Ascension.

Experience It Passing Through Us – Steve Beckow

The Art of Love – Amanda Cass

💚💖

Experience It Passing Through Us

Eureka! Drilling with our awareness, we struck love

Written before my recent reading with AAM.

There’s no subject more important than us enjoying love.

We spend a lot of time in our lives seeking it in general and seeking it externally in particular.

It’s ironic because we have a fountain of youth, an artesian well of love inside our hearts.

But then we compound matters by doing something else.  We misunderstand the dynamics of love. All of us are trying to get love – from our parents, our partners, our children.

It isn’t the getting of love that carries the reward we seek; it’s the giving.

Why is that? Because higher-dimensional love must flow. It does not stand still. And it flows universally, without our steering it.

We get our reward  – that is, we get to experience love – as it flows up from our hearts and out to the world. I repeat: We experience love mostly as it flows through us. Not to us.

Everybody, you’re going to be tested on this later.

—->>>  THIS IS IMPORTANT <<<—.

Love flows through us in an act of giving, not in an act of getting. We send our love out to the world and experience the flow of love as it passes through us. (1)

Gosh, that’s significant.

Eckhart Tolle tells a story about a beggar who turns out to be sitting on a box containing gold. The box is our heart and the gold is the love that exists inside the locked box.  It’s the inner tsunami that leads to the Ocean of Love. We’re unaware of the wealth in the box we’re sitting on.

It’s a hidden treasure, but seek and ye shall find, we’re promised.

From my limited experience I’d say we’d profit immensely – if we want love – to try giving it rather than trying to get it. We’d thereby become channels for the entry of higher-dimensional love into our realm of existence. And then we’d experience it passing through us on its unimpeded way out to the world.  And being a pipeline for love is excruciatingly … lovely.

From my own experience, giving love is the quickest way I know to experience the higher form of love.  Starting to send it out to all and sundry and experiencing it as it passes through us is what will bring us our reward.

As I feel love arise in this moment, it quickly blends into bliss.

Footnotes

(1)  I’ve been persuaded by Matthew Ward and my own experience that we can also get love. But I find it quicker to give it and experience it flowing through me. That’s an almost instantaneous route.

Archangel Michael: There are No Sides. There is Just One Choice – Steve Beckow

archangel michael via council of love blog

Archangel Michael ~ Image via Council of Love

💙

Archangel Michael: There are No Sides. There is Just One Choice

Archangel Michael sometimes says something that has me want to stop the presses. Of course this is problematic for me because, by solving a great dilemma, it makes everything I prescheduled obsolete.

What he says here is very relevant to us as a world riven by racial hatreds and gender exploitation, religious differences and political disagreements.

He’s talked to me about not taking sides for some time now, but the penny hadn’t dropped. In this latest discussion, it did. I got it. Thank you for being patient with me while I stumbled around in the dark.

If you take what he says here and add to it an understanding of my 1987 vision, you have two great big puzzle pieces in place. (1)

Steve: One of the things that’s been troubling me is the thought that I shouldn’t be taking sides and yet I most certainly am on the side of the Light.

Can you just talk to me a bit about that to help me clarify the matter?

AAM:  And what you are really saying to me, sweet friend, is that there is only one choice.

You see, it is not taking sides. Because what you are doing [is not delineating into sides], and what I encourage you and every single person on this planet and far, far beyond to do is [the same].

There is a mighty battle – I can use no other word for it – being waged upon your planet. It is far more complex and, might I say, far more secretive than 99.9% of the population is aware of.
When we talk about taking sides, it immediately separates the heart, the mind, the psyche, the behaviours [by holding] that one path is right and one path is wrong.

There is only one choice which is in alignment with your divinity and the divine, and that choice is the choice of the Light, the choice of the Love. …

There is only one path and that is the path of the Light.

So when you bring yourself into that alignment, then the, what I would term as “lower-vibrational” (you will understand what I mean) judgement disappears in the one-path process. (2)

Steve: So not sides because that relates to people but choices because that relates to behavior?

AAM: Choices because, yes, it relates to behavior, to actions, to thought processes, to heart processes. But what it really relates to is the determination – that is, as in willful – the determination of what your choice is going to be.

Steve: I’m not sure I got that one….

AAM: So there is a determination factor, as in when you look at something and you say, “Oh this is the truth; these people are behaving correctly. This is valid truth” or “This is wrong,” not knowing what the back story is.

Now there are “absolute wrongs,” as you know, because they are not of love. But what you are doing is you are not adding your energy, your voice, your intellect or your heart to taking a particular stance or side.

So when you look at something, you say, “Well, does this align with light?” Not judging the people or the veracity of their information.

Because what is being judged as correct action, opinions, belief systems, operating systems… The knowing of what is truly going on behind the scenes [is not there].

This is not to underestimate the human capacity for truth. Quite the contrary.

But there are judgements being made about who is right and who is reliable, who is not and who is unreliable and all that does is feed divisiveness.

I got it. I got it. There are no sides. There is only one choice: To love or not.

And I don’t say that as a club to beat someone over the head with, a new meme. I mean it really genuinely, deeply.

Nevertheless, I’ll bet someone will divide the world into two sides, two camps: Those who love and those who do not. Less and less as the energies rise.

It isn’t my intention to create a new meme.

My intention is to limit the focus of my gaze to myself. Am I loving or not? That is the most useful application of what Michael is saying, in my opinion.

If I really were immersed in the higher form of love, the problem, as Michael indicates, would evaporate. Love would dissolve it instantly. Problems cannot survive in the inner tsunami of love.  All dross is driven away, leaving only purity and innocence.

The purpose of life is to know our true identity as God. Not by the mind is the One known, but by the heart. Our choice is to love or not love.

At the same time, it’s the destiny of every created soul to realize God one day; therefore we’re all on the same pilgrimage. Not one is fated to perish; we are all eternal souls/the One. We should be cheering each other on, not fighting each other.

(2) Yes, I do understand. When one experiences higher-dimensional love, almost immediately pain disappears; all memory of suffering is immediately lost. The same with bliss.
